at Leavenworth.

of Armed Guards and Escaped—Carried
an Official With Them.
Leavenworth,, Kan., Nov. 11.—One
man was killed, five others were
wounded and 26 deseprate convicts
are at large as a result ot a mutiny
late this afternoon at the site of the
new United States prison, two miles
Southwest of here, where four hun­
dred prisoners from the federal prison,
in charge of 3U armed guards, were at
work. When the trouble began the
rebellious prisoners had only two re­
volvers. These revolvers had been
secreted in one of the walls ot the
building by some unknown person.
There are two walls partly completed
and the rest of tne site of the build­
ing is surounued by a high wooden
Gus. Parker, of Ardmore, I. T., one
Of the ringleaders of the mutiny,
■walked to the corner of the stockade,
where the revolvers were concealed,
and, under cover of some weeds, se­
cured them without being detected.
He returned to the gang and passed
one of the revolvers to Frank Thomp­
son, a negro from South McAlister, 1.
T., who secured it about his person.
When E. Hinds, superintendent of con­
struction, and tuiee unarmed guards
prepared to round up the men at the
end of the day s wora, tne two aimed
convicts covered mem with revolvers,
and, encouraged by the other mutin­
ous convicts, lurced tne men to walk
before them toward the not th west
(corner of the ciockade, where they ex-
. pec ted to make a rush through an
The outside of the stockade was
guarded by armed men, and when the
convicts appeared at the opening
they were met by C. E. Burrows, a
guard, who fought them back, but
who received two shotB in the neck.
The convicts then rushed over to the
I south wall to another opening and
were met by Arthur Trelford, an arm­
ed guard, who is in charge of ail the
I convicts. Trelford resisted the con­
victs and was shot twice, but not dan­
gerously wounded. Defeated in their
attempt to escape at this point, the
men rushed to the guard house, a
temporary frame structure where the
arms are kept. The guards from the
outside rushed in at this point and
drove the convicts away from the
guard house. P. J. Waldrupe, a guard,
shot and killed Ford Quinn, from
Ryan, I. T.
The prisoners then made rush for
the main entrnce, and 26 of them
succeeded in escaping. Most of the
, escaped men are from Indian Ter­
Closely followed by the
guard, the men ran to a nearby forest
and succeeded in evading their pur­
suers. The men went in the direc­
tion of Eas.on, Kan., and it is report-
■ ed that they have held up many farm­
ers, taking horses and clothes en
The convicts in their flight, com­
pelled F. E. Hinds, superintendent of
construction, to go with them, and
he was not allowed to return until
they had gone almost two miles. W.
F. Peasless, one of the fugitives, who
had but 15 months more to serve,
deserted the band a few moments af­
ter Superintendent Hinds was re-
| leased. The two men reached here
almost at the same time. They re­
ported that the fugitives, after hold-
! ing a consultation, decided that they
would form themselves into several
small parties, so that some might es­
cape though others should be cap­
tured. It is the intention of all of
them to attempt to reach the rough
| country southeast of here.
Head Treasurer of the Maccabees Is a Defaulter

He Refuses Io Pry the
Stone Is Released.
Sofia, Bulgaria, Nov. 12.—Informa­
tion has been received here from
Doubetza that the band of brigands
holding captive M îbb Ellen M. Stone,
the American missionary,
called j
about a fortnight ago at the village
of Smetchevo, and subsequently pro­
ceeded to the monastery of Hilo, but
the movements of troops compelled
the brigands to flee toward the fron­
tier, where they are now in hiding.
It is also asserted that the brigands
have recently been treating t Miss
Stone with mote severity in order to
exercise pressure and to compel a
more ready acceptance of their con­
Consul General Dickinson is inflex |
He insists that the surrender
of Miss Stone must precede or be
simultaneous with the payment of
the ransom.
His attitude is justi­
fied by the known determination of
some members of tile band, particu­
larly the captain, Yanne Sandsby,
to kill Miss Stone and her compan­
ion as soon as the ransom is received,
owing to the fact that the captives
have now acquired information con­
cerning the secret committees. Com­
petent persons, however, express the
opinion that the cupidity of the bri­
gands will overcome their fear of rev­
elations, and all such approve the
declaration of Mr. Dickinson.
Yesterday, Mr. Dickinson made
representations to the
Bulgarian government against the
movements of the Bulgarian troops,
reproaching the officials with the tact
that notwithstanding their solemn
promises to give him all assistance in
their power, their action was embar­
rassing the negotiations, retarding a
settlement and placing the life of
Miss Stone in jeopardy. He made a
definite declaration that the Bulgarr-
an government would be held respon­
sible for the death of Miss Stone and
of all the consequences of her death,
should it be proved that the attitude
of the Bulgarian government forced
the brigands to kill their captives.
Department Hat Big Stocks all Over the World
—What It Costs.
Washington, Nov. 12.—A striking
illustration of the growth of the
American navy is presented in a sin­
gle statement in the annual report of
Rear Admiral R.B. Bradford, chief of
the equipment-bureau of the navy,
that he spent $2,227,111 the last fiscal
year for 324,108 tons of coal, at an
average cost of $9.01 per ton.
report says that this was nearly 95,-
815 more tons of coal than was used
during the preceding fiscal year. Ten
years ago the coal consumption was
73,00 tons per annum. The domestic
coal costs $8.60 per ton, and the for­
eign coal, of which 106,066 tons were
used, cost $8.50 per ton.
Bradford has scattered American coal
all over the world wherever suitable
storage could be found.
He has
placed 12.000 tons at Yokohama, and
5,000 tons at Pichilique, Mexico, and
he has sent large quantities of coal to
Guam and to the Philippines.
carried 9,000 tons by water from the
Atlantic coast to Mare Island, Cali­
fornia, where it came into competi­
tion with English Cardiff coal. They
have averaged the same in cost—viz.,
$9.29 per ton—but at present, owing
to the scarcity of American freight
vessels, the best Ca"diff coal is con-
sideraby cheaper at Mare Isiland.
It is recommended that two large
steam 10,000 ton colliers be built to
keep depots supplied in time of-peace,
and to accompany the fleets in time
of war.

Scranton, Pa., Nov. 12.—The com­

tion of the Temple Iron company in
reinstating the alleged blacklisted

Minister, Over the Manchurian Treaty.
Pekin, Nov. 11.—A violent dispute
with Paul Lessar, Ruslan Minister to
China, over the Manchurian treaty, ap­
pears to, have been the immediate
cause of the death of Li Hung Chang.
The diplomatic events preceding
this tragic climax nave enabled Japan
for a moment to frustrate the designs
of Russia. A fortnight ago the Jap­
anese Legation secured a reliable out­
line of tne terms of the treaty and
thereupon demanded that the Chinese
plenipotentiaries officially lay before
them the text, basing this demand up­
on the allegation that Japanese inter­
ests were involved in any change of
the status of Manchuria.
The Chi­
nese plenipotentiaries iefused to com­
ply with the demand. Thereupon, tne
Japanese Government, from Tokio,
communicated with the Southern Vice­
roys aud induced them to use their
influence with the impress Dowager
against the treaty. In the meantime,
the Empiess Dowager instructed la
Hung cnang to communicate the
treaty, after certain modifications, to
the Ministers of the powers, and, if
they did not object, to sign the same.
Li Hung Chang visited M. Lessar
and explained to him the instructions.
The Rusian Minister strongly object­
ed to tevealing the text of the treaty
to the Ministers of the other powers,
and a stormy interview ensued. Li
Hung Chang went home in a violent
passion aud had a hemorrhage, which
the doctors attributed to the over­
exertion of a weakened system.

To Reform Russian Factory Laws.
Socialism in Holland.
New York, Nov. 6.—According to
advices from St. Petersburg to the
London Times and the New York
Times, the Russian minister of fi­
nance, M. Witte, js engaged on a
scheme with a view to substantial re­
forms in the factory regulations.
The scheme will shortly be submitted
to the council of state. M. Witte is
convinced that the proposed reforms
will strengthen the handicapped in­
dustrial position of Russia.
New York, Ndv. 8.—The proposed
boycott of British commerce, says the
correspondent of the London Times
and transmitted to the New York
Times, has degenerated in Holland j
into a simple manifestation of social­
ism against capital.

would otherwise sympathize with thr
movement detest socialism and there­
