APPOINTMENT OF TAFT.
Will Be the Ftrtt Civil Governor of the
Philippines. . .
Washington, June 21. Secretary
today issued the order of the president
establishing civil j overnment in the
Philippines. The orJer follows:
"On and after the 4th day of July,
1901, unless it shall be otherwise
ordered, the president of the Philip
pine conimisxion will exercise the
executive authority in all civil affairs
in the government of the Philippine
islands heretofore exercised in such
affairs by the military governor of
the Philippines, and to that end,
William II. Taft, president of the
said commission, is hereby appointed
civil governor of the Philippine
islands. Such executive authority
will be exercised under and in con
formity to the instructions of the
Philippine commission, dated April
7, l'JOO, and subject to the approval
and control of the secretary of war
of the United States.
"The municipal and provincial
civil governments which have been or
shall hereafter be established in said
islands, and all persons jer forming
duties appertaining to the oiliccs of
civil government in said islands, will,
in respect to such duties, report to
the said civil governor. The power
to appoint civil officers heretofore
vested in the Fhilipine commission
and the military governor will be ex
ercised by the civil governor, with the
advice and consent of the commis
sion. "The military governor of the Phil
ippines is hereby relieved from the
performance, on and after the baid
4th day of July, 1901, of the civil
duties heruinliefore described, but his
authority will continue to be exer
cised as heretofore in those districts
in which insurrection against the
authority of the United States con
tinues to exist, or in which public
order is not sufficiently" restored to
enable provincial civil governments
to lie established under the instruc
tions to the commission, dated April

NAVIGATED HELL GATE.
Big; Battle-Ship Massachusetts Successfully
Passed the Narrows.
Xew'York, June 22. Without the
assistance of a pilot and to demon
strate that a first class battle ship
could be navigated through Hell Gate
successfully, Captain Henry M. Man
ney took the big battle ship Massa
chusetts through the narrows today.
It was the first time in the history of
the navy that any commander of a
war vessel of this class ever dared
attempt the feat, and river craft and
the shores were filled today to witness
the trip of the Massachusetts. The
passing of the mammoth fighting
machine through the dangerous
waters of Hell Gate successfully
proves that in case of hostilities with
a foreign power, a battle ship of the
same draft as the Massachusetts, if
she passed the fortifications of Wil
let's Point and F6rt Schuyler, could
repeat the performance of the Massa
chusetts. Secretary Long has taken
official noticcof Captain Manney's
teat, and issued orders that no naval
vessel the size of the Massachusetts
shall use the Hell Gate narrows ex
cept in cases of great emergency.
STRIKERS FIRED UPON.
Three Men Shot While Trying Enter a
West Virginia Mine.
Matewan, W. Va., June 22.
Strained relations lietween the union
and non-union miners here has re
sulted in bloodshed. Yesterday seve
ral hundred union miners who are
on strike marched in a body against
the Maritime mines of this palce,
where non-union men were at work.
They tried to effect an entrance, but
the operators, with 20 guards armed
with W inchestera, blocked the en
trance. The non-union miners were
headed by Superintendent Lambert,
and when the union men persisted in
ther attempt he gave the order to fire.
Fully 50 shots were fired. Two union
miners were fatallly shot and another
dangerously wounded. The union
men did not return the fire, but dis
persed. All the union miners throughout
Mingo are collecting, and serious
trouble is expected tomorrow, when
they will again try to effect an
entrance to the Maratime mines.

President Did Not Corns But "The Fourth"
Is Coming and There Will Be a Big; Time.
The enthusiasm which Portland ex

been bottled up and will be let loose
in the celebration of the Fourth of
July. While the committee which
is engaged vuarrauging for the cele
bration is not doing much talking, it
is earnestly and energetically at work
on its plans, and will have several
very large surprises in store for Port
landers and visitors on Independence
Day. The fact that cheap railroad
fares will be provided on all lines
into the city will doubtless prove an
incentive to many residents of the
neighWing cities to come in and
help celebrate, and they are promised
a reception which they will long re
member. Bands from various outside towns
will help to furninh the music, and
all societies of whatever character are
invited to take part in the parade.

that they will lie welcome, and he
says that the city will probably enter

SWEPT TO DEATH.
Two Hundred Lives Lost la West Virginia
Rain Storm and Flood.
Blueflelds, W. Va., June 24.-This
section has just been visited by a
flood, the extent of which in all prob
ability will equal or exceed that of
Johnstown in 1889, so fr as the losa
of property is concerned. Early yes
terday morning, shortly after mid
night, a heavy downpour of rain be
gan, accompanied by a severe electrio
storm, which increased in volume,
continuing for several hours. The
storm continued throughout the
entire night and day and at 10 A. M.,
though the storm had abated, the
lowering clouds threatened another
terrific downpour at any moment.
. Many miles of the Norfolk A. West
ern railroad track, bridges and tele
graph lines are entirely destroyed
and communication is entirely cut
off west of Elkhorn, so that it is im
possible to learn the full extent of the
loss of life and property, but officials
of the coal companies located in the
district have sent out messengers to
Elkhorn, the terminus of both tele
graphic and railroad communication,
and have received a report that a con
servative estimate as to the loss of
life will easily reach 200. Some of
the drowned are among the most
prominent citizens of the coal fields.
The little town of Keystone, with
a population of 2,000, seems the
greatest sufferer, practically the entire
town being washed away. This town
is the principal one in the Pocahon
tas coal fields, and is located near its
center. It was to a great extent the
headquarters from which the mining
population purchased supplies.
A great number of the coal and
coke plants throughout the Pocahon
tas district are reported practically
destroyed and are in some instances
entirely washed away. Owing to the
high water which has flooded the dis
trict and prevents communication,
anything like a correct estimate of
the loss of property is impossible, but
from the best information obtainable
the lo3s to the property will easily
A rough estimate places the num
ber of bridges washed away between
Bluefields and Vivian Yards, a dis
tance of 28 miles, at from 15 to 20,
and from present indications it will
be impossible to run trains through
to Vivian and points west of there
under a week or 10 days. This will
render it impossible to get relief into
the strioken districts, and with those
who escaped with their lives, home
less and without food, indescribable
suffering is inevitable.
FIGHTING IN THE SOUTH.
Forty Insurgents Killed or Wounded in
Manila, June 22. It is estimated
that 40 insurgents were killed or
wounded during the recent engage
ments which occurred near Sorsogon
in Albay province. Many insurgents
are returning to their homes.
Charges of theft and sale of prop
erty are made against a number of
the witnesses in the commissary cases.

VICTIMS OF EXPLOSION.
Three Men Were Killed and Five Others
Kalama, Wash., June 24,. Three
men were killed and five others in
jured by the premature explosion of
a blast on the Oregon & Washington
Railroad. The scene of the accident
was in a deep cut about half a milt
south of this place.
The cause of the explosion will per
haps never be known, as the men who
were working at the drill hole were
instantly killed. About 25 men were
working in the cut, and from the sur
vivors it was learned that two men
were loading a 12 foot drill hole with
No. 2 giant powder, and had put in
about 100 sticks. It is supposed
that they had just been tamping the
powder with an iron bar, as they had
sometimes done before, when the ax
Americana Invade the Rand.
London, June 25. The Johannes
burg correspondent of the Daily Mail
contributes a long letter to his paper,
in which he describes the American
trade inavsion of the Rand, aided, he
alleges, by British apathy. The cor
respondent asserts that Americans
are quietly buying up shares and
pushing their efforts in every direc
tion. He says that practically all
the mining machinery is already
American and refers to a rumor to
the effect that there is an American
movement to capture ill the poorer
Invasion of Cape Cqtony.
London, June 25. Lord Kitchener
has sent no report of the Waterkloopf
mishap. Recent events in Cape
Colony seem to prove the Boer inva
sion of that country to be serious.
A letter to the Daily Mail, dated
Cape Town. June 5, confirms the
pro-Boer report and says the invaders
number anything from 7,000 to 10,
000; that they are swarming all over
the eastern and midland districts and
getting recruits and horses. 5
GOLD FROM DAWSON
STEAMER DOLPHIN BRINGS OUT
Two and One-half Millions More Now on the
Way Dowa the Yukon River to St. Mich
eel's, and Another Million is Coming Up
the River to Skagway In the Grips of the
Seattle, June 26. Gold receipts by
the steamer Dolphin from the Klon
dike this morning are: For the Ca
nadian Bank of Commerce, $1,000,
000; individual dust, $350,000.
There was shipped from Dawson
via St. Michaels, June 12 $2,500,000,
and there is now on the way up the
river $1,000,000. ,
Alaska's output of gold from the
spring clean up has started in a steady
flow to the United States. Over three
tons of gold, or $2,500,000, is on its
way down the Yukon. It will bo
brought from St. Michaels probably
on the Roanoke. June 20 over $1,
000,000 was on its way up the Yukon
from Dawson. It will probably ar
rive on the next steamer.
The Dolphin left Skagway June 20.
The big shipments of gold she brought
came up the Yukon on the river
steamers Zealandia and Canadian,
leaving Dawson June 12. The gold
was removed to the assay office early
According to advices on the Dol
phin, the miners on Eldorado creek
have about finished their clean up for
the season. The miners on the other
creeks are also well along with the
work of segregating the gold from the
earth in which it is dug out during
the winter, and an estimate of the
total clean up for the district for the
season places the amount at between
$15,000,000 and $20,000,000.
The next steamer from Skagway
will probably be crowded to the guards
with returning Klondikers. Over
150 Klondikers arrived at Skagway
the day the Dolphin left. Very few
of them, however, came down on her.
Between 100 and 150 Dawsonites were
en route to Skagway from White
Horse, and fully 200 passengers from
Dawson were said to lie in White
Horse. All steamers leaving Dawson
had full passenger lists, and two of
these boats, well loaded, were on the
voyage up the river.
FELL FROM A WINDOW.
Adclbert S. Hay Accidcntly Killed at New
Haven Son of Secretary of State.
New Haven, Conn., June 25.
Adelbert 8. Hay, son of ( Secretary
Hay, and ex-consul to Pretoria, was
found dead on the sidewalk outside
the New Haven house early yesterday
Mr, Hay retired to his room at 1
o'clock, after spending the evening
with friends in apparently excellent
spirits. About 2:30 o'clock in the
morning a few people standing out

a large white object come whirling
through the air and strike the side
walk. The night clerk of tho hotel

ognized the body as that of a young

There was considerable excitement
about the hotel, and a large body of
students and graduates, who are here
for the commencement exercises, soon
gathered. A number of his former
classmates at Yale positively identi
fied the young man.
Dr. Bartlett, the medical exam
iner, stated that Mr. Hay came to his
death by an accident. The clothes
on the bed had been turned, showing
his intention to go to bed. His
clothes had been folded. On the
ledge of the window was found a part
ly burned cigarette. This discovery
leads to the belief that Hay had light
ed a cigarette before retiring and had
went to the window to smoke it.
Whether he was seized with a fit of
dizziness or fell asleep on the window
ledge cannot be determined. There
are no external injuries.
Mr. Hay graduated from Yale in
1898 and had come here to attend his
class triennial reunion. He was out
driving in the evening with a party
of classmates and friends, and on re
turning to his room left word to be
called at 9 o'clock next morning.
This was the last seen of him alive.
