Father Mollinger, at the shrine of St.
Anthony on Troy hill, Allegheny, is at
tracting attention throughout the coun

parts of the country have arrived in this
city since Monday, and they are coining
by every train, several ot tnennmber,
whose ailments were apparently beyond
all human power to relieve, have already
been restored to health or greatly re
lieved. Today Father Mollinger was
obliged to remove from the sacristy of
the little church to the more commod
eous8chool building adjoining. ' At one
time over 2000 patients were waiting
their turn to receive the venerable fath
er's blessings and whatever remedies he
should apply. Next Saturday is St.
Anthony's day and preparations are in
Drosrress for the accommodation of the
' thousands who will be presented that
-day, on which the priest's power to heal i
is earn to oe extraordinarily great, ue
cause Anthony is the saint from whom
he derives that power. Today two blind
! boys, born blind, aged 13 and 14 years,
led by the mother and sister, sous of Mr.
Culbertson, a wealthy farmer near Hali

London, June 13. It is currently re
ported that Lord Coleridge, Lord Chief
Justice of England, who presided at the
recent baccarat trial, will take official
notice of the charge made against him
by Sir William Snbstace, of which it is
naid that the verdict of the jury would
have been entirely different had it not

little more than a street robbery by
which one or two lives were lost. Not

Tin Plate Works to Shot Down.
London, June 13. Owing to the de
creased demand from America, forty
three "Welch tin-plate works will shut
down during the whole of the month of
July, locking out 26,000 men. It is
feared that the stoppage will extend
beyond July. A mass meeting of men
will be held in Swansea to protest
against the lockout.
A Fatal Electric Storm.
Loxg Branch, X. J., June 13. An
electric storm which swept over this sec
tion of the state' yesterday afternoon
caused some loss of life and the destruc
tion of considerable property. At Ham-
monton, D. Gross and his two children
were instantly killed by a bolt of light
ning. The damage done at Ashbnry
park amounts to $20,000. ,
and at least some of the cures effected
are little short of miraculous. It was
discovered today that Adolph Hepp,
Father Mollingef's amenuansis and in
terpreter, together with his brothers,
Frank and John, and Jacob Hook, have
for several days been extorting fees from
the afflicted, representing that they had
great influence with the priest. One of
the Hepp brothers said that by this plan
they secured several hundred dollars a
week. Father Mollinger makes no
charge whatever for his services. His
attention has been directed to the scan
dal paused by the actions of these young
men, and it will be stopped and the par
ticipants made tosuffer. It is stated
this evening that Father Mollinger has

pope. He leaves on Monday next. The

"The throne rests upon the founda

A British weekly remarks : "The res
olutions are enough to sober up the
strongest supporters of monarchy." A
Vienna correspondent of the Times- says
the baccarat scandal has caused a sensa
tion in army circles on the continent,
especially in countries where the prince
of Wales" is honorary colonel of special
regiments. The Globe this evening says
both the army and navy feel keenly the

The Burning of the Government
house at Honolulu.
San Francisco, June 12. The steam
ship Mariposa from Australia, via Hono
lulu, arrived today. - It brings fuller par
ticulars of the government warehouse
fire at Honolulu, June 2. Several work
men bad been soldering leaking kero
sene tins in a shed a short distance from
the warehouse, which was . used solely
tor the storage of oils. An employe in
moving the soldering to the furnace used
a handful of waste taken from the floor
of the shed which happened to be satur
ated with oil. This set fire to the shed
and it spread to the warehouse, which
was soon a raging mass of flames. The
firemen were unable to get water from
the plugs, and t he explosion of a number
of arums of gasoline, of which there
were several hundred in the warehouse,
drove them to a distance. The fact that
the warehouse was constructed of brick
and iron and little woodwork, and that
there was scarcely any wind, saved that
portion of the town" from destruction.
The greater part of the oil, of which
there was 33,000 cases, of the value, at
the Honolulu retail prices, ot $300,000,
was owned by the Standard Oil Com
pany. The rest was divided among sev
eral holders. There was also about 2000
gallons of gasoline in the warehouse, a
part of which was saved. The insur
ance is small.
TRAVELED AS FREIGHT.
Novel Manner in Which a Couple Is Sup

Victoria, B. C, June . 10. A piano
case, supposed to contain a piano, and
consigned to W. R. Wright, Victoria,
came through from Toronto some months
ago. The claimant not putting in an ap
pearance, the case was placed in the
freight shed here awaiting the owner.
Yesterday the company decided ' to
examine the piano. When the case was
opened it was found to be fitted up as a
comfortable little apartment, and bore
traces of having been occupied bv a man
and woman during a trip across the con
tinent. A good soft mattress was on the
bottom of the box, and several articles
of male and female apparel were scat
tered around. The sides of the

some morsels of food were fonnd. There
were several air holes in the box, and
the covering was fitted with hinges, so
as to easily open from the inside. As

TREATED LIKE SLATES.
The Chronicle sincerely thanks the
Wasco Sun for the hearty, joyous ring of
its article headed "The Dalles Our
City," in this week's issue. Brother
Morgan does not write of the place
where he makes his bread and butter as
if he had a constant cargo of undigested
squr grapes in his stomach, like some
people we wot of. His. article is the
very opposite of those who, having made
everything they own in the world here,
never write of the city or its inhabitants
except with a pen dipped in worm-wood
and gall, and who are constantly pro
claiming to the outside world that we
are nothing but a ' community of snarl
ing moesbacks. The Chronicle, on the
other hand believes that The Dalles is
one of the very best towns in Eastern
Oregon and it is not afraid to proclaim
to the world that there is more business
done here than there is in any town of
its size in the state. Keep up your lick
Brother Morgan and if the Chronicle
can do nothing more it will gladly stand
by and pat you on the back.
The eight gentlemen who have con
sented to allow their names to be used
as candidates for city offices need no
words of commendation from the Chron
icle. The record of every man of them
is thoroughly clean and above the
breath of suspicion and reproach. It is
the very recrudescence of a miserable
and pevish factionalism that wonld in
sinuate otherwise. The head of the
ticket would confer more honor on the
city by accepting its mayorship than he
would receive by being elected. The
names of R. V. Gibons, Paul Krefi,
Chas. E. Haight and H. C, Nielsen
are the names of clean, honorable and
respectable citizens who would be an
honor to any ticket. : There is no better
young man in The Dalles for steadiness,
sobriety and industry than Frank Mene
fee and the writer has known him ' from i
boyhood. We have no citizens more re
spected and honored for their enterprise
and devotion to the best interests of The
Dalles than those of Orion Kinersly and
Max Vogt. These names may not all be
approved by the primary tonight but
the citizens will have hard work making
a better selection.

at Florence, Italy, by a mob of Italians,
was a more serious anaar than is shown
by meager details cabled to this country.
When Jacques received the American
papers containing the story of the attack
made upon him and his daughter,' and'
saw that the serious nature of the .case
was not comprehended in this conntry,
he wrote to the Herald an account of
the incident, in which be said among
other things that the attack was made
on him by a mob' who knew he was an
American, and who threatened to lynch
him. Had it not been for the coachman
who drove through the crowd, be and
his daughter would have been killed.
Continuing' he said : ; "I have ' learned
that many .arrests have been made, and,
as there were many witnesses, no doubt
couviction and punishment will follow.
Several prominent Italian residents of
Florence called on me and expressed re
grets, and assured me that the mob was
largely made up of ruffians from other
cities, and had come there to promote
the several demonstrations of May 1 .

Moses H. Scott Appears After the Courts
Divided His Estate.
Olympia, June 10. Consternation
was occasioned here today by the receipt
of a letter from one Moses H. Scott,
from Sacramento, bcott lett Olympia in
1881, and has not been heard from since,
although search was made in all the
cities along the coast, and he was re
ported to be dead. Letters of adminis
tration on his estate, which consists j of
property in all parts of the city and
county, were granted to his stepmother,
May Scott, and the property, much of
which was desirably located in the city,
has been sold. Mr. Scott writes from
Sacramento, and asks in what condition
hi s estate is. : He further states that be
We cannot for the life of us under
stand how it is that those who cry loud
est against class legislation should be
the foremost in demanding free coinage
of silver. To us free coinage means
nothing less than a scheme by which a
silver miner can take 76 cents worth of
silver to the United States mint and get
a dollar for it. In that case the miner
would make 24 cents and the govern
ment lost that amount. To us this is
simply robbing the government for the
benefit of the silver ring. The existing
law is better. The government buys
monthly in open market, at its market
value, what, practically, amounts to all
the silver the country produces, coins 76
cents worth of it into a dollar and pock
ets the difference. No one ought to ob
ject to this for the profit of the govern
ment ia something in which we all have
a share, unaer existing . conditions a
free coinage law is as if congress should
enact that the government should pay
the former a dollar a bushel for his wheat
and foot the loss between that price and
its real market value. It would, of
course be a fine arrangement for the
farmer but no honest farmer wants such
a law. ,It would be class legislation
which is another name for legalized rob
bery. Why then should the people de
mand such a law for .the silver, miner?
If weinust have free coinage let it be a
hundred cents worth of silver coined in
to a dollar. Then the miner gets all his
silver is worth and nobody is the loser.
But if this ia impracticable, surely it is
our highest wisdom to ed limit the coin
age of the 76 rent dollar that it ahull not
drive out of circulation, which Jt inevit
ably would, the 100 cent dollar and leave
us with a .single silver coin currency.
Practically it is of no moment what a
dollar has made, whether of paper, gold
or silver, so long as it is an honest dollar,
and a 76 cent dollar is ' as much of a
swindle as a 28 inch yard stick, even if
the silver barons, under a free coinage
law, should get a thousand governments
stamps on every one of them.
When Mr. Michell says that the Rev.
J. A.' Orchard and C. F. Hobart are not
residents of this city he, on the one
hand, comes as near the truth as is cus
tomary with him and on the other is
contemptable disingenuous. Mr. Or
chard has had his home exclusively in
this city for more than two years and is
a larger tax-payer than the "enterpris
ing'' citizen who returns 13000 worth of
property and offsets it with $3,200 worth
of debts. Besides Mr. Orchard is not
the pastor of the Eight Mile church or
of any church. He is simply an evangel
ist, with The Dalles as the bead-quarters
for himself and family. Mr. Michell
has discovered that one C F. Hobart
lives at Star buck, Wash. It is quite
likely that he does, but the Mr. Hobart
whose name was on the original petition
was, as Mr. Michell doubtless well
knows, C. C. Hobart of this city, and
the mistake in the middle letter was
made by the copyist.

in a woman burning a heap of firewood

the contracts, believing that it was use
