Escapes' Convicts Hold Up Two Men of Poise

Gervais,- June 11. Harry Tracy and
David Merrill, who escaped from the
Oregon penitentiary Monday, came
into Gervais at 9:30 last evening and
secured a meal at the home of Alonxo
Briggs, who was made to do tneir
pleasure at the point of a gun. They
next appeared in an alley back of the
drug store and postoffiee on the main
street. They climbed a fence and
passed through a back yard and then
by two hotels. Netr this place they
met and held up a buggy containing
two members of the posse searching
f-.i them. Both men were made to
rive up their guns and one his coat.
They were then ordered from the buggy,
which the fugitives took and started
out of town. Ten minutes later the
horse returned with the empty buggy.
Several citizens saw the convicts in
town, but none attempted to capture
them. Sheriff Durbin soon esme np
w.th two bloodhounds from the Walla
Walla penitentiary, in charge of guard
Carson, and again set out in pursuit.
Lonvicti Return to Salem.
Salem, June 11. Tracy and Merill,
the fugitive convii t murderers, came
into Salem Monday night, held up a
man, divested him of his clothing, stole
a team of horses and made their escape.
All this happened about 10 o clock, but
the officers were not informed until 4
o'clock in the morning, ttie victim of
the highwaymen having fears of his life
if he talked sooner. The convicts then
passed through the residence district of
the city into Cartwright'a addition,
where they stole a team of horses from
a barn within a block of the East Salem
school and then left the city, going
north. They were seen to pass through
Brooks at 12:30 yesterday morning.
FIRE IN A HOSPITAL.
Tea Persons Killed and1 Thirty Injured In t
Chicago, June 11. Nine men and
one woman were killed and about 30
persons Injured in a fire which yester
day afternoon destroyed the sanitar
ium connected with St. Luke's Socie
ty, at Wabash avenue and Twenty
first street The greater portion of
the patients received in the institu
tion were those seeking cure from the
drink habit and those who were ad
dicted to the use of drugs.
When the fire broke out there was
on the fifth floor a number of patients
suffering from delirium tremens and
some who were deranged by drugs.
Some of these were strapped to their
beds and It was impossible to save
them, bo rapidly did the fire spread
through the building.
, The fire originated In the basement
of the building and spread rapidly to
tbe upner stories through the elevnt
or shaft. Before the occupants of the
building could be warned, the flames
had been carried to the roof, had eat
en through it and were leaping high
In the air. As the fire ran through
the building patients sprang from
their beds and before they could be
prevented several had lumped from
the windows to the pavement The
nre department was on the scene In
a few minutes and as the windows
were filled with people shrieking for
help, the firemen devoted their first
efforts to save lives and allowed the
fire to burn. While this was the
means of saving a large number of
neople, who were carried down Ud
ders by the firemen, it gave the fire
such headway that there was almost
no chance for those on the upper floors
or the building to make their escape,
and those who were not suffocated
were killed or badly injured by leap
ing from the windows.

Supplici Sent by the Dixie were Not Die.
tributtd With Dispatch.
Washington, June 11. Professor
Robert T. Hill, of the geological sur
vey, who was one of the scientists on
the expedition of investigation sent out
by this government following the Mar
tinique disaster, arrived in this city
today from New York. Professor Hill
"The Dixie expedition was a great
success. It was organized in less than
four days with a complete equipment.
The endeavor which the United States
made to relieve the distress, and the
large representation of naval vessels
and newspapermen has made a deep
impression on the people of the island,
to whom we were a constant marvel
and eource of astonishment. The
negroes of Mai tlnique were laboring
under a misapprehension that Ameri
can "buerprise was going to rebuild St.
Pierre, and when told that it was on
French territory, they could not under
stand why a little matter of interna
tional complication should be permit
ted to interfere in the work.
"Too much cannot be said of the en
terprise and labor of United States
Consul Ayme, who rushed to the scene
of action from his station at Guadeloupe
with hardly a stitch of clothing or a
cent in his pocket, and intelligently
did everything in his power to assist
the people of the island and the
American relief party. It is feared
that his health, which was already pre
carious, is seriously shattered by hie
"The only criticisms that could be
made concerning the outcome of the ex
pedition would be concerning the man
ner in which the reliei was distributed
on the island. Notwithstanding the
reports to the contrary, there was much
distress on Martinique, and had our
supplies been distributed with the same
generosity by the local officers as that
with which they were given, much
more good would have been done, the
governor and many of the prominent
island officials having been killed in
the disaster. The slowness of the
relief was no doubt due to the disor
ganized condition of affaiis."
TO SETTLE 8TRIKE.
Public Opinion Demand! Arbitration of Port
land Labor Troubles.
Portland, June 11. The public call
for an arbitration of the difficulties be
tween the planing mill owners and their
employes is the general topic of conver
sation among those interested in the
strike situation, and the general senti
ment expressed was that the welfare of
the community demands that such a
course should be pursued. The em
ployers declare that they have nothing
to arbitrate, and that the question in
volved is as to whether they shall be
permitted to run their own businesi or
whether they must be dictated to by
the union. The sentiment expressed
by many of the prominent men of the
city, is to the effect that the loss in
curred by any concession that might be
made to the union would be insignifi
cant when compared to that incurred
by any continuance of the strike, and
that so long as the union people are
disposed to stand by the decision of an
unbiased committee, the employers
should be willing p terminate the
trouble in this way. The Bentiment
is not undivided, however, and there
are many who think the question of
union standing and union power is the
one involved, and that it should be
fought out and decided now. They
say that the trouble is between the
planing mill men and the union, and
should be left to them for settlement ;
that if the employers say they have
nothing to arbitrate, they are running
their own business, and should be al
lowed to take any stand they see fit;
that if the employes do not like their
terms, they should quit, but that men
who wish to work at these terms should
be allowed to do so, and that the union
should not attempt to force the mill-
owners into subjection.

tlon Urge Poise In Pursuit
Salem, June 10. Harry Trcy
and David Merrill, convicts, escaped
from the Penitentiary at 7 o'efftek
yesterday morning and made their
way to liberty, leaving murdered be
hind them Guards F. B. Ferrell, S. R,
T. Jones and B. F. Tiffany, while
Frank Lnghram, a convict, who tried
to bar their road, waa shot In the
knee which was so badly shattered
as to require amputation. He is now
resting easily, and strong hopes are
entertained for his recovery. Clad in
their prison garb, well armed and pro
vided with ammunition, the men are
now lurking In the woods not far
from town, and, although hundreds of
citizens have recruited the posses that
are searching for them, they have
thus far eluded pursuit.
The convicts, who are professional
criminals of the most dangerous type,
had secured rifles and revolvers Sat
urday or Sunday, probably from some
confederate previously released from
the Penitentiary who had smuggled
the weapons in. The men working in
the stove foundry, among whom were
Tracy and Merrill, had Just been
marched in from the chapel and were
about to report to work to Ferrell,
when Frank Girard, another guard,
heard a rifle shot, and, looking quick
ly in the direction from which It
came, saw Ferrell dead and the two
thugs, both armed with new rifles,
approaching him. Girard, like all
shop guards, was unarmed, and he In
stantly took to flight, running for his
life down the center aisle of the build
ing, while his pursuers gained on
him at every Btep. Suddenly Frank
lnghram, a life prisoner from Linn
county, seeing the peril in which the
guard was placed, stepped out and
endeavored to stop the highwaymen.
Tracy stopped long enough to Are a
shot at him.
Before reaching the yard Tracy and
Merrill again brought their murder
ous rifles into play. First they rid
dled the extreme southwest and
northwest guard posts, but fortunately
did not kill a man. Then, with a
single shot at a distance of 150 yards,
one of them brought down Jones, who
was on the wall in charge of the north
post. As the guard fell dead they
turned and took several shots at Tif
fany and Ross, guards on the north
Then, believing that they had suffi
ciently cowed their keepers, they
coolly proceeded to take a ladder from
one of. the shop buildings, placed it
against the east wall and mounted It
while bullets from guards on more re
mote parts of the wall flew thick
about their heads. Tiffany, who had
not lost his nerve at any time during
the fusillade, sent shots repeatedly
after them, but none of them hit Its
mark, and the escaping men In an
other InBtant had Jumped from the
wall and disappeared. '
Running along to the spot where
the men had crossed, Tiffany and Ross
leaped after them and followed them
around an angle in the wall, where
they met them face to face. Instant
ly the guards were covered and com
manded to give up their rifles and
cartradges. With the memory of the
murder that bad already been done
fresh In their minds, the guards com
plied and threw their guns and am
munition on the ground. They were
then ordered to stand forth and were
marched ahead of the convicts for 100
yards, when a guard from one of the
posts flred at the fugitives. They in
stantly returned the Are, and Tiffany
whom one of them had selected for a
target, fell dead with a bullet through
his right breast. Ross immediately
dropped, and his presence of mind
saved his life, for the men, believing
that he, too, had been killed, paid no
further attention to the shots behind
them and ran for cover.

Bitterness Between Boers.
Bloemfonteln, Orange River
Colony, June 11. A strong contrast
to the feeling between Boer and Bri
ton the bitterness existing between
the burgher, who are Burrendering
under the peace terms, and those
Boer who surrendered during the
campaign. When the Boer leader
came to Bloemfonteln, previous to the
conclusion of pace, they curtly re
fused to shake hand with those who
had previously surrendered. The
general belief 1 that relations be
tween those two classes of Boer will
b ombfttered for a long time.
SEA DREDGE FOR BAR,
Columbia River Likely to Have One at Once
Funds On Hand to be Used.
Washington, June 10. As soon as
the rivei and harbor bill has been
signed by the president, the chief of
engineers will appoint a board of en
gineers, in accordance with the pro
visions of the bill agreed to by the con
ference committee, to visit the Colum
bia river and make an examination and
estimate to determine whether a canal
for overcoming the obstructions, be'
tween The Dalles and Celilo can be
built for less than tbe estimate made
by Captain Harts two years ago, ap
proximately $4,000,000. The first
action taken under the new bill will bo
the appointment of special boards. If
this board shall report the Harts eeti
mate a reasonable and saf one, and
that the work cannot be done for any
considerably less amount, the chief of
engineers intends to authorize the com
mencement of work without further
delay. While there is nothing addi
tional in the department on whichsto
base an opinion, engineer officials here
incline to the opinion that Captain
Harts will be sustained by the board
Work at the mouth of the Columbia
river will be taken up as soon as the
local engineers submit projects, upon
which contracts are to be invited. The
preliminary work dene under the last
appropriation has placed the jetty and
approaches in snch condition that the
work of extension can be carried on
without delay. In this connection the
chief of engineers is considering the
advisability of taking a part of the
funds on hand for the month of th
river for.building or purchasing a sea
dredge for maintaining a deep channel
across the bar until the jetty is com
puted. He is of the opinion that he
already lias authority to make this ex
penditure, and has informed Mr.
Tongue that he is very favorably im
pressed with the proposition, realizing
the necessity for immediate relief.
Other works will be taken np as soon
as plans can be prepared.
TIE-UP IN WESf VIRGINIA.
More Miner! Obeyed the Strike Order Than
Wheeling, W. Va., June 10. The
strike ordered by the United Minework
ers of America, to take effect in West
Viiginia today, was much more om
plete in some districts than expected
and less effective in others. The in
complete reports are conflicting, but on
the whole several thousand more men
went out than was anticipated. The
strike affects not only the industries ol
this state, but also the railways and
river navigation. All of the local coal
railroads suffer. Among the trunk
lines, tbe Norfolk & Western suffered
most today, but very many miners were
also idle along the Baltimore & Ohio
and the Chesapeake & Ohio.
As a rule the miners quit work with
out much demonstration, but in some
places they were marching with bands.
It was ascertained that the operators
in some places hud secured nuinv
armed guards in anticipation of a pro
tracted struggle, if not of violence. In
a few places the striking miners were
served with notices to vacate the boose
belonging to the coal companies.
While the strike in this state is gen
erally regarded as sympathetic with
that of Pennsylvania, there is a general
impression that the bituminous coal
interests of other states have bad their
influence in bringing on a crisis in
West Virginia. There is a strong or
ganization of miners in this state inde
pendent of the United Mineworkers of
Ameria, and the members of the state
union have continued when the United
Mineworkers have ordered strikes in
bordering states and in Indiana, Illi
nois and other states.
RIVERS ARE SUBSIDING.
Wont of the Flood In Kansas ii Over Loss

Emporia, Kan., June 10. Both the
Neosho and Cottonwood rivers are sub
siding. The former estimated loss of
$1,000,000 is still adhered to, and St is
now believed that it may even go
above this. The Neosho has subsided
enough to clear some of the fields, but
all over the flooded country a eedi

which was at its height last night, has
fallen three feet. The farmers along
the Cottonwood are in as bad a Btate as
those on the Neosho. The crops are
