Non-Union Men Are Attacked at Mints Near Vincennes, Indiana, Vincennes, Ind., Nov. 21.

Discovery of a Harvard Professor Support the Theory. v Boston, Nov. 20. Professor E. C, Pickering, director of the Harvard Ob servatory, has made a discovery that he regards as important. In a state ment just out, he says: "The spectrum of a streak of light ning was photographed last July. From such a small beginning two discover ies have developed. Not only are the chemical elements, so-called, com pounds, but it la likely that hydrogen Itself, which chemical theorists have thought to be one element of which the others would sooner or later prove to be compounds, seems to be of com posite nature." Other photographs made at about the same time show the curious fact that the spectrum of lightning is not always the same. Some ot the photo graphs show a doubling of the bright lines. Professor Pickering was at first inclined to believe that this was a sort ot composite photo, but he now concludes that the doubling looks as though hydrogen, the only element studied In the lightning spectrum, and hitherto believed to be least likely ever to be proved a compound body. is made up of at least three compon ents. This conclusion he bases upon the fact that there were 80 lines in the hydrogen spectrum on one photo, three in another and one in the third. the different flashes havnlg been pho tographed under different circum stances. Another -remarkable circumstance In connection with the study of pic turing of spectra of lightning flashes Is that they are similar to that of the second new star in the constellation Perseus, known as Nova Persei No. 2, which were taken on March 23, 1901. LETTERS FROM MISS STONE. Long Captivity Has Aflecttd Her Health Brigand Hold Out for Big Ransom. Sofia, Nov. 20. Another letter has been received from Miss Ellen M. Stone. Her health has been some what affected by her confinement and hard fare, but she expresses herself as still confident of ultimate release. A letter to Mr. Dickinson, diplomat ic agent of the United States at Sofia, replying to his proposals concerning a ransom, says the brigands will hold out for a figure very much above the sum at Mr. Dickinson's command. The brigands interpret Mr. Dickinson's note having fixed on the sum he is willing to pay, and on a time limit, as being Indicative that he can get more money. They also demand immunity from prosecution. But it is impossi ble for tbe diplomatic agent of the United States to have power to bind the governments of Bulgaria and Tur key. This point, however, Is not likely to be a serious obstacle in the way of negotiations. Reason to Be Hopeful. Washington, Nov. 20. Another ca blegram received from United States Consul-General Dickinson at Sofia, today indicates that, while Miss Stone has not yet been ransomed, there is reason to feel assured as to her fu ture. The dispatch furnished, evi dence that Mr. Dickinson remains in direct communication with the bri gands or their agents. MINER RELEASED. Work of Removing Debris at the Baby Mine Continne. Pocahontas. Va., Nov. 20. The work of removing fallen slate s-nd deb ris from the Baby mine continues. This morning Frits Mouiton was found entombed in a room on the west aide. He wag living, but a few hours more would, no doubt, have brought death. For six hours phy sicians worked with him before he was restored to consciousness. He is yet feeble, but will likely recover. There was great rejoicing when the' news spread that he had been recov ered alive. Mouiton says all within the mine Thursday night commented on the heaviness ot the atmosphere, and that a number of the men left their work ahead of him. He soon found that danger was imminent, and, along with several others, started running from the drilft A heavy re port that shook the mountain was heard, and an Instant later a huge cloud ot smoko and flame was seen coming. He lost sight of his compan ions, but he turned into a side room as quickly as possible, and was shut off by falling slate. Probably two days passed before he succumbed to the foul air. Founder Not Satisfied. New York. Nor. 20. Henry Four- nler, who on Saturday broke all auto mobile records, by going a mile in 61 4-5 seconds, on the Ocean Parkway, Is far from being satisfied that the limit of automobile speed has been made.

CLOSED ITS DOORS THE METROPOLITAN BANK. OF TACOMA, SUSPENDS. Ha Deposit of About $500,000 Saving of the School Children, Amounting to Over $U,000, Are Involved Due to a Mis understanding Regarding a Suit Brought ' Against the Old Metropolitan. Tacoma, Nov. 21. The Metropoli tan bank, P. V. Caesar, president, closed its doors yesterday after stand ing a run all of tbe day before. The run began as the result of a misun derstanding, the small depositors be lieving (hat a suit nled against the receiver of the Metropolitan Savings Banc, which failed five years ago. had something to do with the present Metropolitan Bank. About $40,000 was withdrawn and the bank hag ap plied for a receiver. Dwiglit Phelps was appointed, with a bond of $10, 000. The fact that the school children's savings account, amounting to $12, 000, was in the bank, helped to spread the rumor started by the old suit. The Metropolitan '8 total deposits are about $500,000. The failure is due entirely to the misunderstanding. President Caesar says he is negotiat ing with New York parties, and be lieves he will be able to perfect ar rangements to pay every depositor in full. The school savings are secured by school warrants held in trust by the secretary of the school board. No statement of the liabilities and resources has been given out. After the run on the bank, the clearing house met and, after an examination of the securities, offered to advance money to carry it, provided President Caesar raised $25,000. This was not done and the clearing house declined assistance. It is unofficially stated that the securities of the bank are below the amount credited to depos itors, and that there was only $6,000 cash in the vaults when the bank suspended. . MOROCCO DESIRES REFORM. Surrounding Influence Hamper the Ruler in Hit Efforts for It. New York, Nov,. 20. A correspon dent of the London Times and New York Times, wiring from Marakesh (City of Morocco), states that he has just had a long audience with the Sultan of Morocco. On entering the palace, says the correspondent, he was conducted through an open square. On one side of it were cages .containg His Majes ty's collection of wild beasts, while roaming about were Barbary wild sheep, gazelles, wild boars and cranes. SultSn Mulal Abdul-El-Aziz, the dis- patcb goes on to say, is tall and well- built, with a most intelligent and most pleasant expression and with fascin ating manners. No interpreter was present at the audience, the conversa tion being in Arabic throughout. There is, declares the correspondent, no doubt in regard to the soundness of the Sultan's views, but he Is much hampered by surrounding influences, and honest viziers are required. Abdul-El-Aziz makes no secret ot his de sire to see reform In every branch of the government. The correspondent expected to find a typical, expression less Oriental, whereas he found a young man full of energy. He says he left the palace more hopeful than ever that there la a possibility of a bright future for Morocco. Laden With Contraband for Boer. London, Nov. 21. The govern ment has caused the detention of a British steamer which was fitting out ostensibly for a pleasure cruise, at Victoria docks, on the ground that the vessel was laden with contraband of war destined foi the Boers. A searchlight fixed on the steamer's mast brought ber under suspicion, and it is said a subsequent search disclosed four field guns and quanti ties of raw material for the manufac ture of gunpowder, and that the vessel was fitted inside to accomodate from 500 to 600 men. The captain of the steamer says his instructions from bis employers directed him to call at Hamburg after leaving the - Thames. Darmstadt Gymnasium Burned. Darmstadt, Nov. 21.

Opposition to Castro. New York, Nov. 21. A Caracas, Venezuela, correspondent rabies to the Tribune: A large rliipment of Mausers and cartridges has just left La Guayra on a Venezuelan gunboat for the Colombian insurgents. Pres ident Castro's position depends on the success of the latter. All Vene zuela, even bis ministers, oppose his policy. The revolutionists, under General Juan Pietri, are gaining in the state of Carabobo. CRIME OF A MOONSHINER. Killed Two Officers and Cremated Their Bodies A Posse In Pursuit. Oxford, Miss, Nov. 19. John A. Montgomery, Deputy United States Marshal of this city,- and Deputy United Statea Marshal Hugh Mont gomery, of Pontoloc, left here last night for the purpose of arresting Will Mathls, an alleged counterfeiter and moonshiner, who lived 12 miles east ot this place. Early today, Hugh Montgomery's horse was found stand ing at the gate of Curdy Hall, a neigh bor ot Mathls, and Mathls' house had been burned to the ground. Upon further investigation two partially burned bodies were found in the ash es of the burned building, which have been identified as the remains of tbe Deputy Marshals. John A. Montgom ery'g horse has not been found, and it is supposed that Mathls made his escape on this horse after the men had been killed and the house set on fire. Mathls' wife was at her father's a few miles from her burned home, and she says she and her hus band left home yesterday, her hus band leaving the country. Mathls was indicted last Summer for making and passing counterfeit money and was out on a $2000 bond. The principal witness against htm was a negro living in the same neigh borhood. About a month ago tbe ne gro was assassinated. The two Mont gomery went to arrest Mathlg for making illicit whiskey, and it is sup posed that they were prevailed upon to remain for the night, and were shot while guarding their prisoners. A posse ot 30 or 40 ot the leading citi zens of Oxford went to the scene to day and every effort will be made to capture Mathls. CAUSED BY DENSE FOG.
