Seattle, Ju'y 5. The whaler Bala
ena, of San Francisco, belonging to
the Pacific Steam Whaling Company,
lies on St. Lawrence Island, 20 miles
west of Southeast cape, in Iiehring
sea, a total wreck. Captain P. F.
Cotte and the CO rnon in the crew had

officers I1 escaped to shore.
The Balaena was on a voyage to the
Arctic. She was provisioned for 30
months. The whaler left San Fran
cisco April 4. and, after battling with
the ice for weeks, had succeeded in
working through the worst of the
iio;s. F'I.e was headed to pass St.
Law rcnco island w hen the wreck oc
curred. Shortly after midnight, May
1, the wind rose until it assumed the
strength of a gale, and the whaler
was driven to a point 20 miles west of
Southeast cape, Ht. Lawrence island,
w here she struck a rock. The cap
tain immediately ordered the boats
out. The whaier seemed to have
been hung on the rock, and, although
the waves were pounding her terribly,
she did not founder. In a very short
time the boats were manned and the
crew started for the shore. The sea
was so high that it was impossible for
the boats to keep together, but they
all made the island eventually. The
hands and feet of several are badly
The Ralaena is a total wreck. She

TELLURIDE STRIKE ENDS.
Miners Regard the Terms of Settlement
Telluride, Colo., July 9. With the
positive information from Lieutenant
Governor Coates, a member of the
commission appointed by thegovernoi
to investigate the strike in the Smuggler-Union
mine, that Governor
Orman would not send troopa, andj
with the assurance from the mine
managers of the district that they
could not longer afford to close down,
Arthur L. Collins, manager of the
Smuggler-Union mines, has conceded
several points, and a settlement be
tween himself and the Miners' Union
has been made.
This ends the strike, and many
miners will return to work im
mediately. The terms of settlement are looked
upon as a victory for the miners, and
tonight hundreds are celebrating in
Telluride. The tension of the last
four days has been removed and the
miners and citizens alike are jubilant.
The agreement was signed after a con
ference lasting threo hours. The
miners declare that the settlement ' is
a victory for them, but Mauager Col
lins claims that he is satisfied and
that ho has not conceded any material
points. The local union held a meet
ing tonight and declared the strike off.
By the terms of the settlement non
union men may be employed in the
Smuggler-Union mines. It. is certain,
however, that tho union miners will
not allow non-union men to remain
so any longer than they can help.
The union is permitted, through its
president or secretary, to declare a
man incompetent and order his dis
charge. This feature of the settle
ment is a distinct advantage to the
union, and will enable tho union to
regulate unionism in the mines. The
secretary is given the right to visit
the mine at any time, and can order
the measuring of the men's work
whenever lie wishes, even though the
man has worked but one hour. He
can also order the payment of the
men at any time. The Liberty Bell
and Tomboy mines, which were closed
during the Smuggler-Union trouble,
will akjo open again. The following
is the agreement:
First The company agrees not to
discriminate against the union or
the members thereof, and the union
and the members thereof agree not to
molest nor nor interfere with non
Second The union expresses its
entire disapproval of the recent out
rages. Third The company agrees to let
the president or secretary of the local
union have full access to its surface
property at all reasonable hours; pro
vided that the work of the men is not
Fourth The union agrees to use
all its influence to stop the illicit sell
ing of liquor in Marshall Basin or
around the mine.
Fifth The company is to have the
right to let contracts to any men who
wish to take them, all such contracts
to be on printed forms w hich are here
after to be drafted by a representative
of the union and a representative of
A TASTE OF FREEDOM.
That is All the Cubans Want, Says General
Gomez, Then Annexation.
New York, July 9. A dinner was
given tonight nt the Union League
club to General Maximo Gomez and
General T. Fstrada Palma, by W. E.
D. Stokes. Mr. Stokes was formerly a
member of the Cuban league of Amer
ica, and was closely identified with
the work of the junta, of which Gen
eral Palma was the heid. The Cuban
general made a brief speech, which
was interpreted by General Gonzales.
General Gomez said ho was deeply
touched by the remarkable reception
he had received in the United States.
Cuba and the United States, said the
general, belong together. It is only
a question of gravitation when they
will be one. But at present, after the
great struggle in which thousands of
lives were sacrificed, and when men
returned to their homes only to find
their wives and children starved to
death in the restricted barriers in
which Weyler had them under his
policy of concentration, they felt that
they must have Cuban libre. It is
now fully realized. He said that
Cuba cannot get along without the
United States, but the Cubans want
to feel freedom.
After dinner General Gomez said to
the newspaper men that he wished to
express his gratitude to the press of
the United States and of the world for
the great good they had done to the
cause of Cuban libre. lie was sure
that the Cubans would now establish
their own government, and would
show the gratitude they feel for the
help of the Americans in removing
the Spanish yoke.

Brussels, July 9. The Petit Bleu

UNION FISHERMEN OBJECT TO
EMPLOYMENT OF JAPS.
Frascr River Fisheries the Scene of Trouble
The Japanese Are Now Armed, and De

Pa d for Fish Is Point of Dispute Miti.
itary May Be Needed-
Vancouver, B. C, July 10. The
threatened trouble in connection with
the salmon canning industry reached
a climax today. The fishermen and
the canners have been unable to
agree upon the remuneration to bo
paid to the former for catching fish,
and, ns was the case hist year, the
fishermen, who are well organized,
have declared a strike. The fisher
men's union comprises all the whites
and Indians who, by reason of many
years of service, have become experts
in working for the 50 canneries on
the Eraser river. The canners, un
able to come to terms with the union
fishermen, have arranged to employ
Japanese to catch salmon.
When the Japanese started out to
fish today the union men organized
a system of patrol boats, and every
Japanese found fishing was ordered to
desist and to return to shore. A
nunilrcr of Japanese resisted this com
mand, and fights occurred between
Japanese and union men followed,
resulting in five broken heads for as
many Japanese, Nono of the latter
are fatally injured, but all are pretty
well battered up.
Following this incident the Japan
ese held a mass meeting, at which it
was decided that their entire strength
should be paraded tonight. Conse
quently 1,200 boats, each containing
three Japanese, startetl simultaneous
ly this evening from the fishing vil
lage of Stevenston 14 miles from Van
couver. Twenty-five special police
men were sworn in liesides the regular
force at Steveston, but these proved
inadequate to restrain the union men.
The union patrol of 300 boats is ar
ranging to follow the Japanese at
midnight and both sides significantly
agree that the matter will be settled
before morning. All the Japanese
are armed and so are the w hites.
There is talk of calling out the mi
litia, but it is likley that the trouble
will be settled, whether with or with
out bloodshed, before a military force
could be got to the scene of the
FRICTION IN LUZON.
Grave Charges Against Governor Whitemarsh,
Manila, July 10. The United
States Philippine commission has
ordered H. P. Whithiarsh, the gov
ernor of Benguet province, to come
to Manila and submit to an investiga
tion owing to the allegation that he
has been using his position to his per
sonal advantage in acquiring land and
mining rights from the natives. He
is at present charged with violating
his instructions. The commission
particularly instructed Governor
Whitmarsh to cultivate the friendship
and protect the interests of the Igor
rotes, who suffered from Spanish ex
tortions and exploitations. Colonel
Duval, of the Forty-eighth regiment,
who formerly occupied the provinces
of La Union and Benguet, and Dr.
Kiefer, the regimental surgeon, who
was prominent in the civil service of
the province, complained of Governor
Whitniarsh's method of administer
ing his office. The commission is in
clined to attribute the feeling existing
to military opposition to civilian
authority in Benguet. Voluntary
statements made by natives to Com
missioner Worcester while on a visit
to Benguet form the basis of the in
vestigation. General Bell has for
warded similar allegations to Manila.
Two friars who were invited to Cal
asiao, province of Pagasinan, to cele
brate a holiday, were mobbed. A
native priest denounced the action of
the people, whereupon they attacked
the priest. The friars tied. Thr
native papers have since renewed their
attacks on the friars.
General Chaffee and Wade are at
Batangas.. The removal of the mili
tary headquatrers in Southern Luzon
from Manila to Lipa, in Batangas
province, is contemplated.
Pardo do Tavera, who has been an
nounced as a future member of the
civil commission, and General Cailles,
the insurgent leader who recently sur
rendered in Laguna province, are go
ing to that province tomorrow.

RURAL DELIVERY ABUSES.
Carriers Served Interests of Private Individu
al Too Much.
Washington, July 10. Already
abuses have sprung up in the rural
free delivery service, and prompt steps
are being taken to prevent their
spread, if not stamp them out alto
gether. Under a recent order of the
postofiice department, carriers on
rural routes were granted permission
to deliver and carry packages for per
sons living along the routes. Com
plaints soon piled in that many car
riers, acting under this order, have
been making it a practice to deliver
or sell goods along their routes, which
were furnished by merchants, grocery
men or liquor dealers, who sought
this means of reaching rural custom
ers. This nianner of business, on a
small scale, would, perhaps, have
been unobjectionable, but in a num
ber of instances the carriers became so
industrious in attending to their out
side deliveries that they neglected
their mails, and in consequence a
second order has now been issued
prohibiting rural carriers from engag
ing in any other bsuiness while per
forming their duties as carriers. This
was merely a case of privilege abused
by the few, and in consequence de
nied to all. There were many routes
wheie carriers" conducted this outsi le
business in an unobjectionable man
ner, but they will be affected.
