SOLDIERS SEIZE A TRAIN
ttead Man'l Companion! Swear Ten
g-eanee, and Attempt a Lynching
Kxciltlng Night at Lexington.
' uexington, Ky. Oct 12. As a re-
iult of the killing of a private in the
Twelfth New York regiment by Provost
Guard Kitchen last night, 800 or 400
members of that regiment formed a
mob tonight and seized a train at Camp
Hamilton, with the intention of com
ing to town on it and raiding the
oounty jail for the purpose of taking
Kitchen out and lynching him. Gen
eral Wiley and Colonel Wood were
quickly notified of the uprising, and
they suppressed the mob by the most
radioal and prompt action. The out
break was not unexpected, and the jail
was heavily guarded. The provost
guard in the city was also doubleif -and
things are now quiet, at midnight."
The, rioting tonight was the sequel
not only of the fatal fights last night,
but also of the drunken carousals that
have been going on since pay day".
Last night there were two killed and
two wounded, and a lynching was nar
rowly prevented. The drinking and,
disorderly conduct is not in. Camp'
Hamilton, but in the city, when, the
men get off on leave of absence. .
Private Hefferman, of the Twelfth
New York, was last midnight killed by
Provost Guard Alvin Kitchen, of the
Third .Kentucky, while the former was
running away from a fight he had been
in at a dive, and he refused to halt
when Kitchen called to him to do so.
Kitchen fired twice at Hefferman, the
seoond shot being fatal. The soldiers
are still desperately enraged at the
provost guard for chasing them with
weapons', when they are in the city,
and threatened others as well as Kit
chen. Private .'Bailey, who was also
shot while in the oity last night by the
provost guard, is suffering terribly from
the effects of the wound in his thigh,
and is in a serious condition. The
two colored immunes who were shot in
camp yesterday when Sergeant Green
was killed by Corporal Edwards are
resting easiet tonight. There is more

When the 7:80 L. & N. train started
to town from Camp Hamilton, a crowd
of 800. members of the Twelfth New
York reigment was at the depot to
board it. They were armed, and were
co'ming to town to try to get Alvin
Kitchen from jail and shoot him. The
operator at the station wired to the di
vision headquarters in the camp the
facts, and . General Wiley wired back
instructing the train to be held. He
sent a' battalion to the scene of the
trouble, under Captain Holbrook, adjutant-general
on General Wade's staff.
Captain Holbrook ordered all peaceful
soldiers to return to the camp.
The Sixth Massachusetts regiment
was placed as speoial guard around
Camp Hamilton. ' :.
Later a report readied camp that the
mob was forming in town.
The entire One Hundred and Sixtieth
Indiana regiment was sent to town
about 11 o'clock. A guard of 5 men
has been placed . around the jail, and
jailers and deputies, armed with Win
chesters, are protecting the : prisoners.
Kitchen is badly scared, and fears he
will be lynched. - '
Kitohen will unquestionably get the
death sentence. When he shot Dyren
he was under orders not to have his
.gun loaded. It is said Colonel Leonard,
of the Twelfth New York, was the prin
cipal promoter of the mob. The mattei
will be thoroughly investigated , to
morrow. ' ',. '' ,,,... ,, ,..,:

THE FEELING IK GERMANY
Becoming More Favorable
THE PHILIPPINE QUESTION
Bmperor William' Interest In Cuban
' War Operations The . Question of
Amerioan Meat. 1
Berlin, Oct. 11. There has been a
great ohange in German publio opinion
on the subject of the retention of the
Philippine islands by the United
States. The feeling toward Amerioa
generally is much more favorable than
a couple of' months ago. The news
from the United States that the govern
ment at Washington is seriously con
templating holding the Philippines, is
eommented upon dispassionately in
the German press, and it is significant
that this week two papers of suoh
standing as the Kolniache Zeitung and
the Vossiche Zeitung have published
long letters from German merchants
settled in the Philippine islands, in
which American annexation is strongly
advocated. A correspondent of the
Vossiche Zeitung even vigorously com
bats Germany making any attempt to
secure a portion of the islands, citing
weighty reasons therefor.
Another significant fact this week
was that ' a delegation ' representing
German and German-Swiss firms in
the Philippine islands called at the
United States embassy to express hopes
that America would not relinquish
the islands and would not return them
to Spain, which the delegation claimed
would mean a recurrence of revolution,
and the perpetuation of commercial
troubles. The ' delegation also asked
if it might go to Paris and lay its viowl
before the United States peace commis
sion. The United Statets ambassador
here, Mi. White, advised the delega
tion not to do so.
Mr. White does not anticipate Ger
man interference directly or indirectly,
even if the United States insists upon
retaining the whole of the archipelago.
Councillor Sehwarzonley, formerly
of the German embassy at Washington,
declares that Germany does not dream
of putting obstacles in Amerioa's way.
Mr. White had a long conference on
Wednesday last with the German min
ister of foreign affairs, Baron von Bue-,
low. , ,
The imperial government last win
ter, goaded by the agrarians, drew up
a bill to regulate the inspection of
American meat exports. The bill prac
tically meant the death of the Ameri
can meat trade, and, luckily, it could
not be made ready for production in the
rejehstag before that body adjourned.
Since then, the situation has changed.
The charges against American meats
have invariably proved to be groundless
so that the violent press attacks have
ceased. The government therefore has
considerablv modified the bill, which
ia now much less stringent, but some
of its provisions are still highly preju
dicial to canned meats and sausages.
It is expected that the measure will be
introduced into the reichstag soon aftei
its convening next month. The entire
right and a majority of the centrists
favor the measure, so its passage is vir
TWO CHILDREN K!1eD.
One Was Burned to Death, the Other
Pendleton, Or., Oct. 11. Saturday
afternoon some ohildren were at play
in a barn owned by Sim Hutchinson, a
farmer living near this city. Among
them was the" little 8-year-old daugh
ter of Mr. Hutchinson. The children
trad some matches, which they ignited.
Some straw caught fire, and this w-s
ommunicated to the barn. All. ti.j
children except the little Hutchinson
girl fled. She was left at the mercy of
the flames. A neighbor, Brown by
name, rushed in and found the child
hanging by her hands to a pleoe of
burning scantling. Her clothing was
on fire. He grasped her irr his aims
and rushed out into the open air,
rolled her on the ground and extin
guished the flames. It was found that
her legs, back, arms and head were
frightfully burned. Drs. Cole and
Vincent were called, and succeeded in
allaying her pa'in. Brown, who so he
roically rescued the child, was badly
burned on.his hands and arms. Today
tire child died of her injuries.

bound train on the Washington & Co

round a curve at a point about five
miles east of this, oity, it ran over a 2-j-ear-old
boy, the son of D. B. Watson,
a farmer living at Mission. The child
dad wandered away from home, and in
attempting to oross the railroad tracks.
got caught in a cattle guard. The en
gineer did not see the boy until too
close to stop the train in time to pre
vent an accident., A part of the train 1
passed over the leg of the boy, severing
it from the body. The train was quick- j
ly stopped and the child picked up.
The little fellow lived only 15 minutes
after being run over.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Reported by Downing, Hopkins & Co., Inc.,
Board of Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber ol
Commerce building, Portland, Oregon.
Early in September the price of oash ;
wheat at Chicago got almost to 60c,
and the various grades of contract to
614 to 65o. The pecember, now the
active future, at that time was around
60o. That was on the first rush of the
new spring wheat crop. On that dip
there was some letting up in receipts
and a surprising increase in the export
demand. The development of this in
dependence on the part of growers and'
of buying demand on the side of foreign
ers started an advance that carried the
September within a fortnight to 70o,
advanced the cash price generally about
5c per bushel, and took the December
from 60c to 64 7 -8c. A September
shortage contributed somewhat to this
rally, but it was brought around main
ly by the foreign demand and by the
independence of the countrymen. '
The advance in price changed the sit
uation again. The Western . holder be
oamea seller and the foreigner lessened
his buying. The September experience,
if nothing, suggest that the general
wheat mood just now vacillates between
60c and 70c, the grower being willing
to sell very freely qt the latter figure
and determined to hold at around 60o,
and the,consumer being willing to buy
at the lower but reluctant to take hold
at the higher figures. This experience '
gives the speculator a "line" on the
market, will probably influence the
commission-people to advise' their cus- '
tomers'to act on the theory that around
the 60o point wheat should be bought
and anywhere around the 70c it should
be sold. . Conditions, of course, may
not in October be the same as they were
in September; ., the foreigner, for in
stance, may not be as willing to buy on
the breaks nor the countrymen as deter
mined to hold, and .October by tradi
tion is a more bearish month than Sep
tember; bnt in a general waythewhe"t
speculator, it may betaken for granted,
will bear in mind the September ex
perience. ; . .
