CLUBBED TO DEATH.
Brutal Murder of a Portland Saloon

Portland, Or., Sept. 18. A brutal

corner cf Fourteenth and Marshall
streets, H R. Dickel. the proprietor of
the place, being the victim.
Although the tragedy occurred about
2 o'clock, nothing was known of it un

on his regular rounds, was passing the
premises. He noticed"that the saloon
was lighted up, which was something
unusual, and he proceeded to investi
gate. On entering a little cardoom at
the rear, he found the body of the
murdered man in a corner, ' leaning
against the wail, where the murderers
had placed it after, riling the pockets
and helping themselves to the contents
of the safe, which it is thought
amounted to over $256

Manila, Sept. 17. As the time ap
proaches for the volunteers to loave
these islands and return to the United
States, in ordor that all may be mus
tered out there by Jnue 80 next year,
the question of how to replace the de
parting troops has brought the matter
of an armed native militia to general,
For more than a year there has been
In the service of the United States a
detachment of native Macabebe scouts,
and their work lias in the main been
satisfactory. It is argued that other
native fighting organizations can be
used with as good a result as the Maca
bebes, especially if tho authorities take
advantage of existing tribal hatreds
and jealousies m selecting native sol
diery to operate against the Tagals.
In many of the village garrisons
throughout the i8luu'iar,"rjative inhabit
ants are being employed as a local po
lice force to protect their own villages
against depredation and attack from
robbers and othor malefactors. These
local police are in sotffo cases given
firearms and uniforms, and they have
at times done effective work to the
limited field of action allowed them,
namely the protection of their homes.
They have also been used in operations
against the insurgents, both in Luzon
and in the Southern islands. In Leyte
they did good work two months ago
when they helped eight American sol
diers repel a persistent insurgent attack
upon their town, and two weeks ago,
near Lipa, 20 native policemen went
out alone against 40 insurgents, scat
tered the enemy, killing one, and re
turned proudly to their town with two
of their number wounded.
Those are the beginnings of what
must eventually come to puss in the
Philippines, namely the organization
and use oi native soldiers to preserve
order in the counrty. Just how these
men will be organized and officered is
not yet decided; but Major Allen, of
the Forty-third regiment, on Samar
island, has lately been given permis
sion by General MacArthur to organize
two companies of Visayans for uso
against the insurgeuts, and Colonel
Kenuon, of the Thirty-fifth regiment,
now stationed in Cabanatuau in the
Nueva. Ecja, province of Luzon, has
been experimenting along the same
lines with Ilocanos from tho northern
portion of Luzon island.
In December of last year, about 600
Ilocanos came to Colonel Kennon, at
Cabanatuau, and asked to enlist under
the American flag. Colonel Kenuon
at once ouened negotiations with the
corps headquarters in Manila in the
matter, and Juue 1 he was granted per
mission to enlist 50 Ilocanos as scouts.
Durins this intrim of six months the
600 men were employed as far as pos
sible as road builders, ration carriers
and guides. The success of this first
detachment in the service will pioba
bly soon lead to the enlisntmeut of
other Ilocanos tribesmen.

STRUCK IN EARNEST
Coal Miners Out in the
MITCHELL SAYS 112,000 QUIT
Violence Una Thus Far Keen He
ported -Strike Kxleuda Over
Ilazleton. Pa., Sept. 19. The grea.
etruglge between., the anthracite coal
miners of Pennsylvania and their em
ployers war begun today. Each sido
is confident of winning, and neither
of the contending forces shows any dis
position to yield. The contest thus far
has been devoid of any violence.
The exact number of mon who struck
cannot at this tune be told. Reports
received by the United Miueworkers
officials from the entire anthracite re
gion were to them most satisfactory.
In this territory, known as district No.
7, there are 16,000 men employed in
and about the mines. Of this number,
it is conseravtively estimate. that
about 50 per cent obeyed the order of
President Mitchell to quit work. live
thousand of these belong to the col
lieries which did not work at all, and
the remaining 8,000 to mines which
work short-handed. The district
south of this place, known as the
South Side, was tied np completely
with the exception of Coleraine, Beavei
Meadow and Carson's Washeries. In
this territory the United Mineworkers
are very strong. On the north side,
the Upper Lehigh, Minesville, Ebernle
and Drifton No. 1 collieries, employ
ing about 1,500, are shut down. The
mines at Lattimer and Pond Creek,
employing 1,200, are wroking full, but
every other mine in that big territory
is working with badly crippled forces.
Three of the Markle mines,' over which
there has been so much contention,
worked all day with aobut 65 percent
of the men. On the West Sido every
colliery started up today minus its
union men, except at the Hazle mines,
where the union miners went to work
in consequence of a misunderstanding.
Ilazleton today presented an ani
mated appearance, strikers from all the
surrounding mining towns coming in
early in the day and gathering in
groups on the street corners and dis
cussing the situation. It was a most
orderly crowd. Around strike head
quarters, at the Valley hotel, there was
more or less of a crowd of men all day.
President Mitchell, who arrived from
the West last night, was kept busy all
day and evening, receiving reports
from every section of the region. Mes
sengers bringing information to him
from near-by points kept coming regu
larly. Mr. Mitchell decided an important
point today in the matter of arbitra
tion. Last week the miners employed
by G. B. Markle & Co. decided not to
strike until the firm had passed upon
