Sitka, Alaska, dated Mny 11:
Doctors Moore of Skaigway, and
Linhart, of Juneau, have bren inves
tigating the small pox epidemic at
this place, and the former says there
is no doubt of the prevalence of the
disease, despite reports to the con
trary. The doctors visited all the in
fected districts, and the Indian ranch,
Russian town and the Indian mis
sion. Dr. Moore was outspoken re
garding existing conditions. He said
there can 1k no question of the seri
ousness of the situation. Small pox,
generally in a mild form, is preval
ent, and owing to the uncleanly con
dition of tho ranch, combating the
sickness will be a difficult matter.
In Russion town there were but two
cases, one serious. At the mission
there were found over !10 children suf
fering from small pox. They have
been treated in the hospital which is
located considerable distance from the
dormatories. Up to the present time

Particulars of the Murder of Missionaries in
Vancouver, B. C. May 20. Details
have been brought by the steamer
Moana from Sydney of the massacre
of the missionary party in New
Guiena. , The report to the govern
ment resident of Thursday island is
"The crew of the Dido report the
murder of the Rev. James Chalmers
and Kev. Oliver Tomkins, of the
London Missionary Society, by New
Guiena natives at Debe, near the
mouth of the Fly river. It seems
they went ashore after friendly na
tives had warned them that a tribal
war was in progress, and that their
lives would he endangered. Despite
this warning the missionaries, with
six native converts, went ashore and
attempted to hold a religious service.
The natives blamed the missionaries
for a reverse in battle, and killed the
two white men and all their school
boys. Part of their bodies were
afterwards devoured by the cannibal
natives. The captain of the mission
ary schooner Nine, from his vessel, saw
the bodies lying on the bench with
their heads cut off, but he was afraid
to land. This report of the Dido's
crew has been counlirmed by a well
known native missionary named Isai.
WONT JOIN THE COMBINE.
Alaska Packers Assocation Will Stay Out ol
the Salmon Trust.
San Francisco, May 20. The big
salmon combine is off, so far as the
Alaska Packers' Association is con
cerned. After days of negotiation
between the promoters of the Pacific
Packing & Navigation Company and
the association's officers, a halt wat
called. President Fortman and Vice
President Hirsch of the Alaska Pack
ers' Association, say that they have
refused to sell to the promoters except
for cash, and that not being offered
they terminated the negotiations. T.
B. MeGovern, one of the promoters,
in an interview, said :
"We shall put this combine through
without the Alaska Packers' Associa
tion. We had figured that with the
options we have, if we could secure
the association, we would control
practically all the salmon in the
world. There are, roughly speaking,
3,200,000 cases of salmon packed
every year. Of this total the Alaska
people put out about 1,000, 000 eases. "
Leagalty of the Blacklist.
Chicago, May 20. Judge Baker
has decided that it is legal for em
ployers to maintain a blacklist. The
plaintiff was a labeler and can painter
in the employ of the Libby Packing
company and in February, in company
with a number of other young women,
went on strike because of repeated re
ducrtions in wages. Later the women
tried to obtain work with other firms,
but their applications were rejected
on account of their having been strik
ers. Miss Condon brought suit as a
test, and the court ruled that the var
ious firms had a right to take pretect
ive measures against persons who had
quit the employment of other firms
without valid reasons.

LAUNCHING OF THE OHIO.
The Big 14.000-Ton Hull Slid Into the Bay
With Perfect Success.
" San Francisco, May 20. On a plat
form, decorated with the national
colors, which had been built around
the prow of tho big battleship Ohio at
tho Union Iron Works, in this city
Saturday, were gathered tho presi
dent and members of the cabinet,
Governor Nash, of Ohio; Miss Desh
ler, his niece, who was to christen
the ship; Miss Barber, who was to
act for Mrs. McKinlcy, and many
uniformed officers of the army and
navy waiting for tho signal to start
the big iroti monster down the ways
into San Francisco bay. Miss Burlier,
with her finger on tho button, was
looking intently at the indicator.
At 12:22)t, two and a half minutes
before the tide w-as at its highest, the
time set for the launching, there sud
denly shot into the face of the indi
cator the word "ready. " Miss Barber
pressed the button. The last block
fell away. At the same time, Miss
Deshler, a young lady of 17 years, let
go the bottle of champagne suspended
at the side of the bow by a red, white
and blue ribbon, and as it crashed
against the side she uttered the
words, "I christen thee Ohio."
Released from its bonds tho heavy
hull of 14,000 tons of steel went plow
ing through tho thick grease of its
cradle. Slowly at first, then faster
and faster, she slid down the ways,
taking the Hood majestically and pil
ing up the water in great waves in
front of her. The band crashed,
whistles blew, and tho multitude
shouted. No ship ever given to the
American navy has taken her initial
plunge into the sea under more favor
able allspices or in the presence of a
more distinguished company.
The workingmcn of the ship yard,
whom President McKinlcy addressed,
presented him with a plate of burn
ished gold live by five inches in di
mensions, surmounted by the eagle
and shield' of the American seal. Tho
shield in the center is of California
gold-bearing quartz and is flanked on
either side by tho American ami
California republic flag!". At one
comer of the plate is the seal of Cali
fornia and at the other the seal of
Ohio. In tho center is a miniature
of the battleship Ohio and the follow
ing inscription :
"To commemorate the launching
of the United States battleship Ohio.
Presented to Hon. William McKinlcy,
president of the United States, by the
employes of the Union Iron Works,
San Francisco, California."
The decorations around the border
of the plate are of oak leaves, inter
twined with California poppies.

strength. No definite date has yet
been decided upon as to when the
president will start for the national
capital, but it is hoped that Mrs.

THE STRIKE IS ON
FIFTY THOUSAND MACHINISTS
QUIT WORK YESTERDAY.
Machine Shqps Are Tied Up From Atlantic to
Pacific Strike Docs Not Include Men In
Employ of Government Allied Trades In
Sympathy, and Some Have Already Gone
Out With Machinists.
Washington May 21. Approxi
mately 50,(KK) machinists through
out the country struck yesterday for
a nine-hour day, a scale of wages
equal to the present 10-hour tlay
scale, and other demands. This is a
rough estimate nf President O'Con
nell, of the national association of
machinists, bused on telegraphic ad
vices that hae reached him today
from the machinists headquarters in
the various cities. The strike thus
far has not extended to tho allied
trades, save in one or two instances,
as at Seranton, Pa., where men in a
part of the allied trades arc out. No
machinists engaged in government
work are affected. This is due to the
fact that on such work an eight-hour
day schedule already prevails."
Bailroad machinists, as a rule, are
not engaged in the strke, though the
men on several roads are out.
Mr. O'Connell said last night that
up to 5 o'clock reports show that 904
firms, employing approximately 30,-
000 men, had signed agreements for
the nine hour day or made satisfactory
arrangements with the local organiza
tions. The Strike at San Francisco.
San Francisco, May 21 Sixty five
hundred union machinists and other
iron trade workers affiliated with them
quit work in this city yesterday. It
is expected that about 1,000 more
men will join the strike as soon as
they are ordered to do so by their re
spective national directors. Among
the latter are the iron molders and
core makers. The other crafts affect
ed include almost every branch of the
iron shipbuilding and boiler making

RICH HAY DISTRICT.
Meadow Lands in Idaho Which Produce Heavy
Washington, May 21. A rejiort
has been received by tho department
of agriculture from a special statis
tical agent who bus recently traversed
the great hay district of Northern
Idaho. Along tho St. Joseph and
the St. Mary's rivers, and subject to
overllow during tho spring, are thous
ands of acres of rich meadow lands
which produco heavy yields of wild
hay. Timothy, whero sown, will
yield from two to three tons per acre.
In the Indian reservation tho land is
practically given over to wild hay,
but elsewhere timothy is usually
cultivated. Farmers near tho navi
gablo parts of tho rivers bale their
hay and ship it down tho stream to
the markets of the river or lake
towns. The larger part, however,
of the hay raised in the district is de
voted to stock feeding, a thriving
Much of this district is heavily
timbered, tho principal varieties be
ing white pine, red fir, cedar, yellow
pine and tainarae. Timber cutting

ECLIPSE OF THE SUN.
Clouds in the Sky Interfered With the Ob.
San Francisco, May 22. A cable
gram received from Padang, Sumatra,
from Professor CD. Perirne, in charge
of the Crocker eclipse expedition from
the Lick observatory, stated that the
sky was partially clouded at tho time
of the eclipse. The programme was
considerably interferred with, but it
is hoped that results of value have
been secured on a part of tho pro
gramme. The form of the corona
was similar to that observed at the
eclirses of 1808 and 1900 in that the
equatorial extensions of the corona
were prominent. Tho sky was con
siderable darker than on the occasion
of the eclipse last year, but still was
hardly so dark as expected. De
tailed results of the expedition will
be cabled as far as possible in two or
three days after tho photographic
plates have been developed. Tho
health of all the members of the ex
pedition is very good.
