PORCH HURLED IN AIR
One Man Arrested Suspeqted
of the Crime,
Alva, O. T., Dec, 26. A desperate at
tempt was made here last night to blow
up the Farmers hotel.
The thimble of a wagon wheel was fill
ed with giant powder and placed under
the corner of the building.
Before the burning fuse reached the
powder the thimble burned over and roll
ed a little to one side.
The result of this fortunate occurrance
was that only the porch of the hotel was
blown to smithereens.
It is alleged that some of the boards
were hurled ISO feet skyward leaving no
doubt that had it not been for the acci
dental overturning of the loaded thimble
the entire building would have been
A great deal of the glass of the hotel
It is said that some of the boards blown
up came down, the force was so great
that the nails penetrated the roof and
held as fast as if they had been driven
by a hammer.
A young working man named Elliott
was arrested this morning for the offense.
The evidence against him at this hour Is
not definite enough to consider him the
culprit beyond a reasonable doubt
After the wreck occurred, and during
the excitement, Elliott went Into the
house and secured lodgings. The motive
for the crime Is not known.
Owing to Christmas there were only
light guests in the hotel.
Considerable excitement prevails over
the occurance. Hints are thrown out
that the affair will have a sensational

One of the interesting features of the

Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 25. A special to
the News from JefforsonviUe. Ind-, says
a race war is on at Cementville. a small
statio non the Panhandle road five miles
north of this city, and serios trouble is
expected at any minute. ihe negroes
are all armed, and the "!7ni axe keep

The outbreak began yestrday after
noon, when Lee Banger and Joe Red
mond, both segroes, both very drunk,
started in to intimidate whites. "When
their insults were resented olber negroes
jumped in with the liquorwirazed men
and a fight started in Sam Kendall's sa
loon. Nearly twenty shots were fired, but
no one was hurt. An appeal by tele
phone wae made to Sheriff Rave for help,
and he drove out to Cementville in a
fouggv and to some extent pacified the
negroes while he was present
After his departure another outbreak
took place and message after message
come to the local police to send men to
the town. Sheriff Rave wa sagaln asked
to go to the scene, but declined to do so
last night. Kendall, In addition to his
saloon, conducted a dry goods store,
which was being attended by his wife
and into this The negroes flocked after

Mrs. Kendall was badly frightened, and
her hsband ran into the place and be

shot, but how badly is not known as he
was carrie daway and secretedl by his
companions. Kendall's lite was threat

escape from his store and came direct
to this city, awakening Prosecutor Mont

to serve them.
It wa salmost daylight when the town
became quiet, the negroes har!ng every

sion of gales will be the largest in the
history of shipping along the Pacific
coast. The German ship Carl, wheat
laden from Tacoma for Europe, was tow
ed to Port Angeles this morning by the
tug Boyden in a water-logged condition.
After passing out of the Straits of Fuca
the Carl encountered a gale which con
tinued for several days and was so
rouehly handled by the elements that
stanchions of the bulwarks were pulled
out and as the great waves swept her
decks the water poured in so rapidly
that, the pumps could not keep her clear.
The cargo of wheat became saturated,
and so rapidly did she settle down that
it became necessary to Jettison a portion
of her cargo. She will be taken to the
Esquimault, B. C, dry docks.
