PASSED FORGED NOTES.
Arrest of a Woman May Uad to the Cap
ture of a Gang.
Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 17. Annie
Rogers, alias Maud Williams, aged 26,
is in the custody of the police here,
and General Superintendent Taylor,
of the Pinkerton agency of Chicago,
who is in Nashville, believes her ar
rest will lead to the apprehension of
the gang which, July 3, held up a
Great Northern express train near
Wagner, Mont., securing over $40,000
in bank notes. The woman came
under suspicion by her actions at the
Fourth National bank Monday after
noon, when she presented a large roll
of new bills of small denomination,
asking for large bills injreturn. Not
ing" the bills closely, the teller be
came suspicious and while she was
engaged in conversation, the police
were notified. When arrested the
woman refused to make any explana
tion of where the $550 in her posses
sion came from. The bills were on
the Helena bank, and though signed
the serial numbers coincide with
those given in the Pinkerton circular
advertisement of the robbery. A
warrant was sworn out against the
woma charging her with attempting
to pass forged bank notes. She de
clines to tell of herself further than
to assert that she was born in Texas
and that she arrived here Sunday
night, from where Bhe will npt say.
BALLOON TRIP A FAILURE.
Adverse Wind Caused de la Vaulx to Aban
. don His Voyage.
Taris, Oct,. 17. The attempt of the
Count de la Vaulx to cross the Medi

house. - The balloon was uninjured.
Toulon, Oct. ' 17. When count de
la Vaulx landed here today he said
that the weather was bad yesterday.
A hard east wind blew the balloon
toward the coast of Spain, and a
heavy rain also fell. The passengers
in the balloon eventually sighted the
St. Laurent light, near Port Vendres,
and fearing that the balloon would be
blown ashore, ' they decided to aban
don the voyage, and therefore sig
nalled to the cruiser Du Chayla,
which was escorting the balloon, ask
ing to be taken on board, which was
done with only slight damage to the
balloon and no injury to the passen
gers or scientific instruments. The
voyage lasted 42 hours.

FAMINE IN RUSSIA.
782,000 Poods of Rye Will Be Required to
Relieve Distress in One Province.
St. Petersburg. Oct. 16. (Corres
pondence of the Associated Press.)
It can now bjforseen that the wide
spread crop failures, the consequent
famine and the relief work of the
government and of philanthropists
Will be engrossing subjects in this
empire during the approaching winter
Ihe word famine is not used in the
official publications, which speak of
famine-stricken districts as "places
that are in an unfavorable condition
as respects the harvests," but the
facts that are freely admitted show
that the struggle to keep the peasant
population alive until a new harvest
will be harder than has been known
since 1891-2. The extent of the
disaster can be vaguely surmised from
an inspection of the government re
port, which names the province of
Viatka as among those where there
was an "insufficient harvest," and
which gives the amount of govern
mental assistance required at 782,000
poods of rye.

in a mild form, was prevalent in sev
eral parts of the county for a long
time alter its nrst apperance in
1899, but there has been none in
Chehalis for over a year until now,
and no cases are known to exist in
any other part of the county.

000 In a Most Mysterious Manner
Government Employes Are Evidently
Gallion, O., Oct. 17. The vault of
the Farmers fc Citizens bank at Tyro,
a small town near . here, was wrecked
early today by six robbers, who se
cured the contents and escaped. It
is said the vault contained $40,000.
The cracksmen used nitro-glvcerine.
The doors of the vault were blown
completely off and the building par
tially demolished. 1 The terrific ex
plosion woke the people of the town.
All who approached the bank, how
ever, were driven away by the rob
bers, who were armed with rifles.
Mayor McConnel attempted to enter
the bank but was fired on by the rob
bers and compelled to retreat. Hav
ing obtained their booty, the cracks
men went, to a livery stable, where
they bound and gagged the owner.
They then took several rigs and
drove rapidly away. A posse and
blood hounds are on the trail of the
Dynamited the Vault
Mount Vernon, O., Oct. 17. The
vault of the bank at Danville, O., was
blown open early today by a gang of
eight robbers. Five charges of dyna
mite were used, and the bank build
ing, as well as the vault, was wrecked.
The explosions aroused the citizens,
and a pitched battle took place, dur
ing which the thieves took flight.
They were folio wd to Buckeye City,
where they had conveyances in readi
ness, and drove hurriedly away. Pur
suit was at once taken up, and a
number of Bhots were exchanged,
until Adrian's woods were reached,
where the vehicles were abandoned by
the robbers, who sought cover. The
woods and all roads in the neighbor
hood have been placed under guard,
and it is expected that the men will
all be captured. During the fight a
buggy in which two of the crooks
were riding broke down and they
were foroed to abandon it, riding
away on the horses. In the buggy
was found a largejquantity of chick
ens, potatoes, and edibles of various:
kinds, which is taken to indicated
that the gang intended to hide them
selves in the woods somewhere and

Express Package Robbed of $5,000. .
New York, Oct. 17. W. H. Bren
dell, collector of customs at Buffalo,
N. Y., has been in this city recently
in consultation with the sub-treasury
officials and secret service officers over
the theft of over $5,000 from an ex
press package containing $7,000 on
signed from Buffalo to the sub-treasury
president. The original package
was filled with $7,000 in bills of the
same denomination as were in it
when it left Buffalo. Certain pin
holes had been made in the covering
at Buffalo, and when the package was
again filled these pin holes,. which
had penetrated two portions of the
covering, were found to fit exactly.
The package was carefully traced,
and it was shown that it had not been
tampered with from the time it was
receipted for by the express company
until it was delivered at the sub
treasury. It was also proved that it
had been receipted for in good order
at the sub-treasury, and that the
seals were unbroken. After the ex
pert examination the secret service
men are inclined to think the pack
age was tampered with after it reached
the sub treasuiy and had been re
Surprised By Revolutionists.

ALASKA LINER ASHORE.
Struck In a Dense Fog Passengers Not In
Vancouver, B. C, Oct. 15. In a
dense fog the Canadan Pacific steamer
Ha Ting, from Skagway to Vancou
ver, went ashore yesterday afternoon
at Tucker Bay, Jarvia Island, and is
now hard and fast on the rocks. The
place is a small rocky islet lying to
the northeast of Lgsquetti Island, at
the entrance to Sabine Strait, 49
miles north of Vancouver.
When the steamer went ashore Cap
tain Gosse was On watch, and first
officer Newrotsoa was on the bridge
with the master of the vessel. The
fog at the time was so dense that it '
was impossible to see 10 feet in any
direction. The Ha Ting had on
board 170 passengers, of w hom 130
were first class and 40 second class.
There, was no panic when the steamer
struck, and the passengers were soon
made aware that there was no danger
to be apprehended. After examina
tion of the steamer, when it was found
that she could not get off the rocks
by her own efforts, the captain started
Pilot Gunns off to Vancouver in a
ship's boat with four men. Gunns
rowed down, arriving in Vancouver
this afternoon. He met no steamer
until his crew had rowed 35 miles
distance, when a tug picked them up.
The Ha Ting is a particularly
good boat, having been brought from
Hong Kong for the northern trade
about eight months ago. Her esti
mated value is $240,000.
The Ha Ting a Total Loss.

on adjacent islands. Canadian Pa
cific officials here have advices to the
effect that the Ha Ting will be a total
loss. Captain Gosse, who was in
command, was considered a most care
ful and successful navigator. This is
bis first accident.
