Aided Dutch Prisoners of War to Escape from
the British Camp.
Hamilton, Bermuda, Oct. 3. The
pro-Boers in Bermuda are excelling
themselves over the . escape of some
prisoners of war whom they made
very effort to aid in their attempts
to regain their freedom. Last Satur
day night three men a nephew of
the late Commandant Joubert, Alfred
Marlinas Joubert, and two brothers,
named Indemar made their escape
from the prison at Darrell 8 Island
and swam over to the Princess hotel,
where they dressed themselves in
clothing carried over, tied in bundles,
on a plank. Then, making their
way to a livery stable in Hamilton,
they hired a trap and drove to the
residence of Dr.. Outerbridge, at
Bailey's bay, 'and then retired to a
place of concealment in the neighbor
hood. The search continued for two
days and nights, soldiers, sailors, mil
itary and civilians taking part in it,
before the men were captured. The
affair has caused great excitement
here, not merely because the men
succeeded in making an escape, but
because of the apparent exhibition of
the pro-Boer spirit here.
Proposed Scheme of John W. Mackay Is Dis
cussed at a Cabinet Meeting.
Washington, Oct. 3. Five of eight
members of the cabinet were present
at today's meeting. The principal
subject discussed was that of a cable
to Hawaii, Guam and the Philip
pines. , A proposal has been made to
lay a commercial cable from San
Francisco to connect these islands,
and the question under discussion
was whether, under our peace treaty
with Spain, the United States could
authorize or in any way encourage
the laying of such a - cable by private
persons. The question now at issue
is whether permission to land the pro
posed cable at Manila or some other
Philippine port would be a violation
of the terms of the Paris treaty.
The attorney general will prepare a
statement for the president covering
all the questions involved.
Line Covering the Entire Lackawanna Valley
Is Completely Tied Up.
Scranton, Pa., Oct. 3. The strike
of the employes of the Scranton rail
road company is now on, covering the
entire Lackawanna Valley from Pitts
burg to Forrest City, hot a car
started. The men refused to accept
the offer of Gen. Manager btillman to
leave the question involved in the dis
charge of the two Carbondale conduc
tors to the arbitration of Bishop Ho
ban, or one of the priests of the dio
cese whom he might name, because
the offer did not give the employes
the representation they demanded.
Nearly 600 men are involved in the
strike. Besides the reinstate .nent of
the men discharged, the men demand
the forming of a new agreement in
place of the one they claim has been
violated by the company, and a uni
form scale ol JU cents per hour.
Defaat of Invaders Confirmed.
Colon, Oct. 3. Arrivals here from

Hacha, but they confirm the news
previously cabled to the Associated
Press of the defeate of' the Venez-
uelian invaders at the peninsula of
Goajira by Colombian troops, unassist
ed by Venezuelian invaders. Sev
eral guns, some mitrailleuses and
rines and a large quantity of am
munition were captured. After this
defeat, the Indians who inhabited
Goaiira captured the returning Ven-
ezuclians, among the prisoners being
three Venezuelian rebel chiefs. The
invaders lost many killed. General
Orbis, who formerly served under
General Alban, was also killed.

No Payments Made on Indebtedness for
Three Years People Are Suffering.
Caracas, Venezuela, via Willianv
stad and Colon, Oct. 2. The finan
cial condition of Venezuela is best ex
emplified by the fact that the -repub
lie has not paid interest on its foreign
or internal indebtedness for the past
38 months. Only two or three im
porting houses at Caracas are paying
expenses, business is practically hm
ited to needed foodstuffs, many im
portant orders have been counter
manded, extreme lack of confidence
prevails in business circles, and the
immediate future contains nothing
promising. me" general expecta
tion is that the financial situation
will become worse before it can im
prove. The war rumors have de.
creased imports and the government
is getting into more severe straits
to hud money to meet the extraor
dinary expense incident to maintain
ing the army on the frontier.
Amang the people the suffering from
the hard times is greater. The sala
ries of all the government civil em
ployes have been cut in half, but
even this is not now paid.
bince the reverses at Guaiira, the
government has been transferring
its attentoin to the San Cristobal
country, south of Maracaibo, and is
sending arms, men and 750,000
rounds of ammunition from Caracas to
Barquesimeto, where the interior
forces are converging. The feeling
of the country against President
Lastro is growing stronger every day-
The country's discontent at General
Castro s dictatorship is evidenced by
many comparatively insignificant
signs, but they plainly fortell a grow
ing revolution. A rupture between
Colombia and Venezuela would give
the revolutionary element the desired
chance to attack the government.
The president recognizes discontent
oxistings and is taking measures to
meet whatever revolutionary exigen
cies may arise.
Severe Punishment of Soldier for Abusing
the Late President.
Washigton, Oct. 2. A most unus
ual case reported to the war depart
ment is that of Private Peter J. De-
vine of Troop H, Eleventh Cavalry, who
was tried by a general court martial
at Fort Ethan Allen, Vt., on the
charge of using disrespectful words
against the president of the United
btates, in violation of the 14th article
of war. It appears from the evi
donee that when the news of the
shooting of President McKinley was
received at Fort Ethan Allen, Devine
expressed groat satisfaction over the
crime, and applied an uncompliment
ary epithet to the late president.
His comrades handled him roughly
before he could be secured in the
guard house. He was found guilty
by the court, and sentenced to be dis
hjnorably discharged from the ser
vice of the United States, forfeiting
all pay and allowance due him, and to
be confined at hard labor for one year.
Ihe record of the case having been
referred to Major General Brooke at
New York, commanding the depart
ment of the East, he endorsed it and
said :
"It is not within the power of the
reviewing authority to increase the
punishment, but in order that the
prisoner may not wholly escape pu n
ishment, the fsentence is approved
and will lie duly executed at Fort
Columbus, S. J., to which place the
prisoner will be sent under proper
General Brooke s action in the case
is final, and the record is simply sent
to the war department for filing.
Missouri Man Confessed That He Killed His
Sister and Her Suitor.
DeSoto, Mo., Oct 2. After being
sweated eight hours, William Green-
hill . tonight made a confession to
Posecuting Attorney Williams, in
which he says his brother, Daniel
Greenhill, killed their sister, Mrs.
Sadie Uren, and her suitor, John
Meloy. The confession savs that
the brothers objected to Meloy's at
tentions to their sister because he was
a spendthrift, and wanted to marry
Mrs. Uren lor her money. On the
night of the murder, Saturday last,
Daniel entered the room of Mrs. Uren,
according to the confession, and
found the woman sitting on Meloy s
lap. In a ht of race, Greenhill
grabbed a hatchet arid sunk it into
the head of Meloy, after which he
brained bis sister. He then took a
revolver from " Meloy's ' pocket and
fired into tne wounds he had inflicted
with the hatchet.
Morocco's Promise to Spain.
Tangier, Oct. 1. Savadra, the drag

Boer Prisoners Willing to Swear Allegiance.
London, Oct. 2. A dispatch to the
Times from Colombo says that Sir
Jose Ridgeway, the governor of the
island, has announced that 200 of the
Boer prisoner, in Ceylon have ex
pressed their willingness to take the
oath of allegiance to King r.dwanl.
The prisoners not only desire to take
the oath, but also w uh to enlist in
the British army. They are willing
to serve anywhere but in South Africa,
Twelve Men Have Been Lost They Entered
to Subdue the Fire and Could Not Cet
Back Pit Lamp the Cause of the Dis
asterThe Mine May Be Ruined and
Survivors Deprived of Employment.
Nanaimo, B. C, Oct. 2. Curtain
Extension mine No. 2 caught fire
from a pit lamp at noon. The fire
extended to the woodwork and was
caught by an - indraft and carried
through the mine. The men were
warned and all got out safely.
Twelve men who entered to subdue
tho flames never came back. Three
otners went alter them. Then a res
cue party was formed. They were
driven out by fire and smoke, one of
them unconscious. Then the fire
attacked No. 3, which is connected
with No. 2. Several slight explosions
then occurred. Smoke poured out of
all the entrances, t lames from No.
2 shot up into the'air. All Lope for
the men in the mine is abandoned.
The mine is probably ruined. No
water is available, and there is no
way of extinguishing the fire except
by closing up the entrance, which
might cause a terrible explosion. It
is feared that hundreds of men will
be thrown out of work.
Premier Dunsmuir, president of the
Wellington Coal company, which
operates the mines, left the royal re
ception at Victoria and started for
the scene on a special engine. This
is the fourth disaster in the mines
here this year. .
Benjamin J. Coe the Man Who Killed Mcln
tyre at Chehalis, Wash.
Chehalis, Wash., Oct. 2. By clever
detective work the ; murderer of Ed
ward Mclntvre has been run to earth,
and lie now rests in the Kalama coun
ty jail, having made a full confession
of the shooting. Benjamin J. Goe
is the man who was arrested for the
crime, and who has admitted that he
is the guilty man. He was taken into
custody by Sheriff Huntington at
Winlock, a few miles from the
Patterson hop yard at Olcqua, where
the murder,, took . place. Detective
Sam Simmons, of Portland, was
the leading spirit in the forces that
have been, working on the case. He
arrived last week and went quietly to
work. The one fact more than any
other that led to Goe's arrest was the
discovery of the bullet and the hole
made by one of the shots firedjby him
the evening of the murder. The de
tective and his assistants surveyed
the line of this shot and found that
it could have come from nowhere else
than Goe's doorway With this evi
dence to support their suspicions,
the authorities determined to arrest-
all the mem Iters of the Goe family.
This was done. Warrants were
sworn out in Kelso, and the whole
family was corraled on Sunday evening-
The Hague Tribunal Will Not Assume the
Initiative in Intervention in Any Form.
London, Oct. 2. A dispatch to the
Times from Brussels says that the
council of The Hague Permanent
Court of Arbitration has unanimously
decided that the question of the as
suming the initiative in arbitration
or intervention in any form in regard
to the South African war must be defi
nitely abandoned. The decision, it
ia stated, probably accounts for the
fact that the date of the meet
ing of the council to consider the ap
peal of the Boer representatives in
Europe had not been fixed, and it is
not likely that such a meeting will
take place for a considerable time.
Young Girl' Burned to Death.
Lunda, Utah, Oct. 2. Yesterday
morning while the 7-year-old daugh
ter of Lorenzo Davis, of Quitchapa,
Utah, was trying to make a cup of
coffee on the kitchen stove, her dress
caught fire. Her little brother, after
vainly attempting to quench the
tlamcs, ran to the barn for his mother.
When the mother reached the house
the little girl's clothes had all been
burned from the liody and the flesh
burnt in a 'terrible manner. The
little girl asked her mother to pray for
death, and while the mother prayed
the child died in great agony.
Boers Attack a Garrison.
Durban. Natal, Oct. 2. A force of
1,000 Boers, commanded by Gen.
Botha, made an attack which lasted
all day September 26, on Portitala,

l?licved to have been killed or wound

Guard 'Shot at a'Suspicious Man, When An
other Attempted to Stab Him.
Canton, O., Oct. 1. A strange
story comes from Westlawn cemetery
tonight, wherea company ofregulars
trom fort Wayne are guarding the
vault in which the body of the late
President McKinley lies. It is to the
effect that the guard on duty on top
of the vault fired a shot at one man
who refused to heed his challenge;
that the shot was diverted by another
man who appeared from another di
rection, and that an effort was made
to stab the guard. Military regula
tions prevent either the -officers or
men of the post from being quoted
on any matter connected with their
service, and for this reason Captain
iiiddie, who is in command, was
obliged to decline to be quoted at the
camp tonight. Jlo will make a full
report to his superiors at once. Re
liable authorities made the following
statement :
"Private Deprend was on guard
duty on top of the vault at a point
commanding the entrance below and
the approach from the rear. Shortly
before 7 :30 he saw what he took to be
he face of a man peering from be
hind a tree about 40 feot from hit
post. He watched it for 20 minutes,
lie says, and at 7:45 saw the man
hurry to a tree 10 feot nearer. He
challenged the man to halt but this
was not heeded, and the fellow ap
proached nearer. Deprend leveled
his gun and aimed .to shoot for effect,
but just at that instant another man,
who came towards him from the op
posite side, caught the gun, threw it
up, and the bullet was spent in the
air. This same man struck Deprend
on the right side of the abdomen with
a knife or other sharp weapon, cutting
an "L" shaped gash in his overcoat
an inch and a half long each way,
and a smaller one in his blouse. The
flesh was not broken, but was bruised
under the clothes. Deprend, in the
struggle, fell and rolled down the
side of the vault. Lieutenant Ash-
bridge, officer of the day, was in front
of the vault, and rushed to the top on
hearing the Bhot, but the men mado
good their escape. All members of
the company on hearing the shot,
hurried to the vault, and besides
searching the cemetery, the guard
was increased."
