Wallace (Idaho), July 15.—Two rail
road bridges u<ar Mullan were blown up
last night, and with them several tele
graph poles. The strikers also cut down
a number of poles, thus shutting off
communication by that route for a time.
The Gem and Granite mines are all right.
The rumor that the Granite mine i;:i;l
been blown up was probably started
from the report of the explosion when
the bridges were destroyed.
The military investment of all the
towns is complete. No one is allowed to
go out without a pass.
Tom (>'Brien, PresidenflNif the Central
Executive Council of the Minors' Onion;
c. K. Poynton, Secretary, and about
twenty oilier members of the union were !
arrested this afternoon, and arrests are
"i aing made steadily by Coronor Sims
and the provost guard. Some citizens
have also been arrested, including Robert
Keill and Walter A. Joles. The latter is
one of the union's attorneys. The pris
oners are confined in a schoolhou.se. Jt
is said all the members of the union are
to be arrested. If this is the case, there
will bo about 1,000 arrests made.
THE KIMiI.KAI'KU ABRESTKD.
Spokane, July 15.— The military has
arrested Jack Wallace at Cataldo, who is '
suspected of being the ringleader in the I
Mission trouble and runs a low resort in
that country. The troops are deploying
from Cataldo to-day, and it is thought the
hillswiU beßcoured for other suspects.
The troubled district has been closed to
travel. Nobody is now permitted to go
• the country without a military pass.
General Carlin now has 1.000 troops
under his command and Las called on all
members of the Miners' Union to come
in and surrender.
Notwithstanding the presence of the
troops the strikers continue to make their
felt. They are still ordering
Bpotted individuals out of tho country.
er correspondents are particu
larly obj< to them.
A special to the 2ft vu w says three car
loads of non-union miners taken out to
Tokoa for safety have been taken back to
Waxdner and will be set to work. They
were taken in under the protection of the
regular troops. No disturbance was
raised upon their arrival.
Fugitives from tho Mission continue to
straggle into Spokane. So far none of the
wild stories about the heavy loss of life
there have been verified. One wounded
man has been picked up and now lies in
the hospital. Troops and others are
searching Fourth ot July Canyon. It is
not likely that the truth will ever be
learned about this shooting ailair.

Sax Fkaxcisco, July 15.—The Exam
iner to-morrow will publish a long arti
cle devoted to the sul >jeet of tho Tomescal
tin mines at San Jacinto, San Bernar
dino County, Cal.. in which it declares
that the mines are an utter failure. This
declaration is based principally upon the
testimony of John J. Quick, a mining
engineer of long experience in the Cor
nish tin mines and who worked for a con
siderable time in the Sn.n Jacinto mines,
and who was engaged by the Examiner
to examine and report tho condition of

paper, gives a detailed statement of the
condition of all parts of the mines, and

large body of ore, the working of which
would pay, has ever been found in auv
part of the district.
These Temescal mines commenced
operations in April, ls;i], and the Ex
amitu r states that, notwithstanding the
expectations that they would produce
ft. :r. one hundred to two hundred tons of

tion for tho past twelve months has been
less than twelve tons, w ort h about §.-,,500

of $8,000 per month to meet the deficit.

1! < ..m ;-tkad, July 15.—Right Rev. Sam
uel Fallow, Protestant Episcopal Bishop
of Chicago, addressed a secret meeting
of locked-out workmen this morning.
Among other things, he said.: "1 have
nothing to say about the ri^ht or wrong of
the work done on the river bank last week,
but a fact which stands out about the
riot is that you dealt a death blow to the
Pinkerton system, and it is b» ause you
have done so that the people of America,
not alone workingmen, are with you,
and will be to the bittor end. if you perse
vere in a steady obedience to the Ameri
can law, and steadfast to the un-American
attempts to wrong yon."
It was rumored to-night that there were
fifty non-union men in the mill, but the
Carnegie managers and strike leaders
deny the statement. A lire was started
in one of the hearths to-day, and the
sight of steam attracted a large body of
strikers. They made a hasty movement
toward the gate, and the provost patrol
hurriedly informed them that bayonets
would bo brought to a charge and the
men halted. The abrupt manner in which
they were turned back caused considera
ble feeling. Since the soldiers have been
confined to the camp the sentiment be

Cincinnati, July ;5. —A wind blowing
forty-two miles an hour struck this city
at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon, blowing
from west to east. It was accompanied
by a heavy rainfall. The storm lasted
about lift eon minutes. Tin roots were
peeled off of innumerable buildings, be
sides the roofs be::!^ carried bodily from
many houses. General havoc was played
with shade trees, signs, fences and win
dows. The preparations for "A Night in

Several persons were injured by a por

EXPORTATION OF GOLD.
Banks Taking Stops to Hinder Its Go-
Iny: to Europe.
New York, July 15.— 1n the last two
or throe days six or eight of the big
1 an Us have taken steps to do all in their
power to hinder the export ot gold to
Europe. One result h:is been a radical
change in the manner in which shippers
secure the coin to be dispatched to the
other side. The bankers are acting on
the belief that the exportations have
reached a point beyond which it is not for
the interests of the country to go. The
last (3,500,000 in gold shipped came from
the treasury. Free sold which amounted
to 111,071,237 was shipped on Tuesday.
Under the system heretofore followed,
the exporters went to their banks, se
cured gold certificates and presented
them in turn at the sub-treasury and ob
j tamed the precious metal in exchange.
I The effect was, to all intents and pur
poses, to take the gold out of the banks
and not from the treasury. Under the
new plan the banks will refuse to pay
out gold certificates to the representatives
j of foreign houses, but instead they will
! pay United States notes and treasury
! notes. The former are payable in gold
and the latter in gold or "silver, at the
option of the Treasury Department. So
for gold has always bejiu paid for them.
The bankers estimate that the shipments
of free gold at the end of this week will
amount to about $10,000,000, a sum not by
any means satisfactory in the view of the
bankers. On January '*, 1882, ti.
gold in the treasury amounted to •:"_.">.
--b12,525, and on January 10, 1891, it
amounted to 545,848,862.
President Henry W. Cannoa of the
Cha.se National Bank has something to
say on the matter of Sherman's bill to
stop the purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of
silver a month. lie regards it as a very
wise move, especially as he understands
th#t tho Senator had a linaneial scheme
which he proposes to present in connec
tion whh the repeal of the Act, or to fol
low it. The reneal would, in his judg
ment, be beneficial to tho prospects for a
successful international monetary con
ference. The act of the banks in refus
ing to give gold certificates to exporters
was intended as a patriotic act. Cannon
explained that the bankers thought that
the time had come when the United
States should protect its supply of gold
as other nations had protected theirs, and
should throw as many obstacles in the
way of exporters of gold as possible, es
i pecially in the prrseut conditions, when
j the movement of gold abroad did not
seem to be a natural ono.
The banks had taken the first step and
hoped that the Treasury Department, as
far as the law allowed, would erect other
barriers in tho way of gold shipments.
