The i>etition for rehearing in the case of E. D. Shattuck, appellant, vs. Har rison R. Kincaid, secretary of state, respondent, was denied. This is the mandamus suit brought by the apílel lant to con>i>el the respondent, as sec- retary of state, to audit his claim and issue a warrant on the state treasurer in payment thereof, for salary as cir cuit judge of the fourth judicial dis trict. This suit was commenced in Judge Hewitt’s court, department No. 2, cir cuit court of Marion county. Upon the filing of a complaint the court issued an alternative writ of manda mus, addressed to the defendant and resondepnt, as asked, to show caUBe for not complying with the plaintiff’s de mands. A general demurrer to the writ was filed by the defendant, and the court ordered a pro forma judgment, sustaining the demurrer. The plaintiff refused to amend or further plead, and the court ordered the writ quashed, and gave judgment for the defendant, dis missing the proceeding. From this judgment appeal was taken to the su preme court. A lengthy opinion was rendered, in which it was held that the demurrer should have been overruled and the case remanded. A petition for rehearing was filed by the secretary of Btate’s attorneys without his advice. One petition,prepared by N. B. Knight, was published before being filed with the court. The petitions were both overruled. Secretary Kincaid said today that he has no disposition to delay the matter further, and it being satisfactory to both parties to the suit, it is under stood, the supreme court has agreed to issue a peremptory writ, ami the secre tary of state will begin issuing war rants right away. New York, Sept. 1 29.—The Jonrnal and Advertiser Hays: Three years ago Miss Eloise Brunett was the belle of ' Cienfuegos, Cuba. She was rich, I Now she lies upon a cot in a 10x10 room in a small house on the outskirts of Philadelphia, her body burning with fever, her mind racked by terror of the Spaniards, her memory full of the hor rors of an experience abounding in star vation, suffering and peril. In a similar condition, aggravated by wounds, is Dr. Andre Brunett, who served as a major in the Cuban army. The father of these refugees was an American, who owned a large estate at Cienfuegos. He died in 1893. and his son, Dr. Brunett, went to Cuba to set tle up the estate. The Spanish admin istration of such affairs made this a long and difficult task. In September, 1895, General Rego raised the Cuban standard in the Cienfuegos district, and the young Cuban-American was one of the first to join him. It was impossible for his sister to re main on the plantation, and she there fore went into the Cuban service as a nurse. For 20 months she shared the hardships of the patriots. She re mained bravely in the Cuban army, caring for the sick and wounded, help ing to cook the scant provisions and proving herself a heroine on many ov er sions. After two months of this life they both contracted malarial fever, and were so ill that they had to leave the insurgent army ami seek shelter, and they found neither and were compelled to take refuge in a cave, where they lived for 23 weeks, having no food but green pumpkins, sweet potatoes and water from a stagnant pool. Both suf- fered terriblv from fever, and were often delirious. Finally the brother managed to climb the hill and attract the attention of a Spanish planter, who took them to Sierra, whence they were taken by boat to Cienfuegos. When they landed at the wharf Miss Burnett had no shoes, and her dress, which she had worn for three months, was in shreds. They were almost un able to walk, and were dragged along by the Spanish soldiers, w’ho struck and cursed them, The Spanish com- mander examined them separately to find excuse to put them to death, but failing in that, he permitted them to go to their sisters, who lived a mile away, on condition that they report in person every three or four days. This, in their condition, entailed the most in tense sneffring, but the order was piti lessly enforced. Dr. Brunett appealed to the Ameri can consul, Owen McGarr, for aid, but it was refused. Then followed a long correspondence with the state depart ment at Washington, and in the end the consul was ordered to help them. They received passports on August 13, and sailed September 7. Their passage was paid all the way to New York in stead of Florida. Dr. Brunett and his sister have filed a claim at Washington against the Spanish government for destruction of their proi>erty. Three persons were killed on the Bal timore & Ohio railroad tracks near Chester, Pa., by a passenger train crashing into a wagon.

Five men met a horrible death from black damp, the after-accumulation of a fire in the Jermyn mine near Rend- luun, Pa.

What Will Follow Refusal to Accept Our Mediation. WAR MAY NOT BE DECLARED Madrid, Sept. 28.—The arrival of United States Minister Woodford fr <>m San Sebastian has caused a sensation. The programme of the Unitd States has been ascertained. This does not con template a declaration of war, if Spain rejects mediation, but, according to re ports, an “ostentatious proclamation to the world of disapproval of the Cuban regime by suspending diplomatic rela tions with Spain, and withdrawing|the United States minister.” General Woodford has declined to be interviewed on the subject, further than to say that his conference with the Dubke of Tetuan, the foreign mirister, was of the most satisfactory character. The unexpected bitterness of tin» press and of public opinion has pain fully impressed him, but he hopes it will soon be allayed. He believes his mission is favorable to Spanish inter ests, and con not comprehend that Spain could reject mediation designed to end an impoverishing war. He lias not named a time at which the war must be terminated, hut he hopes, as shown by the rest of his tenders, it will be ended quickly. He believes that war is inflicting incal culable loss upon the United Staes, and that it is impossible to prevent the or ganization of filibustering expeditions. Unusual measures were taken to protect Minister Woodford on his journey from San Sebastian to this city, but the trip was quite uneventful. A party of gen darmes, commanded by a sublieutenant, guarded the Southern express, on which he was a passenger. Secret police were posted at the station, and the prefect of police was in waiting to escort him to his hotel. The drive through the streets was marked by no special inci dent, though several people saluted him, receiving a bow in return. Some comment has been caused by the fact that Minister Woodford’s fam ily has not accompanied him, but re mains behind on the French frontier. Minister Woodford explains that his party is a large one, requiring a com modious home, and prefers spending a pleasant October at Biarritz until a suitable residence can be secured here. General „Woodford has al ready engaged a box at the Royal opera- house, and has purchased horses. General Woodford has taken apart ments at the Hotel Rome, but received official visits at the legation, where he passed the entire morning. Have No Faith In Auatrla. London, Sept. 28.—A Madrid special says: The rumor of Austrian mediation between Spain and the United States, in the event of hostilities, has created surprise, mingled with much incredul- ity. The Spaniards fail to see what Austria could do, unless by naval powers, or at least hy the combined pacific action of several governments. Weyler Call« for More Official«. Madrid, Sept. 28.—Captain-General Weyler has cabled a request to the gov ernment to send 113 additional admin istrative officials to Cuba. The declar ation is being made here and genericly circulated that the Spanish troops in Cuba have recaptured Victoria de las Lunas, which was taken by the iunsur- gents under Garcia, on August 25. Webntor Convicted. Spokane, Wash., Sept. 28.—The Webster murder trial ended in a sensa tional denoument tonight. The jury, after having been out for more than 80 hours, came in with a verdict of mu>» der in the first degree, and was dis charged, but two of the jurors, K. J. Frasier and C. Thomas, immediately delivered a signed statement to the attorneys for the defense that the ver dict was against their convictions, and they only yielded after physical and mental exhaustion from the long strain in the jury room. Frasier is 65 years of age and Thomas 72. It is thought that this will undoubtedly lead to a new trial. Miner«« Burled Alive. El Paso. Sept. 28. — News was re- oeived here tonight that the San Pedri mine, in the Cartillitos group, 12 miles from this city, in Mexico, caved in today, killing 17 men who were at work on thejniineat the time. The un fortunates were buried alive under 50 feet of rocks and dirt. The San Pedro is one of the oldest mines in the group and rich in silver. It is the property of the wealthy Cartillios Company, the principal stockholders of which reside in New York. If the mine was not timbered, the Mexican government will impose a heavy tine on the company on account of the wholesale killing. STRUCK A SAND DRIFT. A Fatal Accident on the O. R. & Railway. N The Dalles, Or., Sept. 29.—An acci- dent occurred on the O. R. & N. road at 12:30 o’clock last night which i re- suited in the killing of the engineer, Charles Johnson, and the probable fatal injury of the fireman, Hockman. Train No. 22, an east bound freight, pulled out of The Dalles last night on time. For some days severe winds have prevailed along the road, resulting in sand drifts on the track. Between The Dalles and John Day river No. 22 had lost considerable time, and when the accident occurred Johnson was speeding his engine along in an effort to make up his schedule. The night was dark, and when a quarter of a mile east of John Day station the engine ran into the drift. The locomotive left the track, turn ing on its side as it plunged down the embankment, carrying with it the ten der and two freight cars. Neither Engineer Johnson nor Fire man Hockman had time to jump. Both went down with the wreck. Johnson’s life was crushed out in an instant, he being fairly buried beneath the engine. Hockman, the fireman, was pinned down by the locomotive, and, with both legs broken, the unfortunate man received the vent of the escaping steam. A wrecking train was sent out and Engineer Johnson’s body was recovered and conveyed to his home in this city. Fireman liockman was sent by spe cial train to St. Vincent's hospital, Portland. Dr. Mackenzie, the com pany’s surgeon, is with the injured man, and an effort will lie made to save the poor fellow’s life. Only two cars, according to railroad authorities, left the track, in addition to the engine and tender. The wreck was cleared at noon today and the track opened for traffic. Making Loans to Farmers.

Joseph Cavendish is pro prietor of the hotel at the east end of town, where several hundred more Polanders make their headquarters. Bad blood has existed between them for a long time, and the recent strike troubles at Hazleton embittered them still more. Lust night matters came to a crisis. Cullacabbage, it is charged, and his followers, to the number of several hundred, armed with guns, rev olvers, knives, axes and clubs, marched to Cavendish’s hotel, where several hundred of their enemies were cele brating pay-day. The Cavendish men ascertained that their foes were march ing ujion them, and, arming themselves hurriedly, awaited their arrival.

VERDICT NOT UNANIMOUS. Coroner*» Jury Differ» Regnrillng* Blame for Latimer Tragedy. Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 29.—The coro ner’s jury which investigated the death of the strikers at Lattimer in the deputy coroner’s office, after an hour’s deliberation rendered the following ver dict: “That from the circumstances of the case and the evidence offered, the 6aid Clement Platok, with others, came to his death by gunshot wounds on Sep tember 10, 1897, at the hands of Sheriff James Martin and deputies, and in this,we, the jury, do all agree, and we, Phil J.
