New York, Jane 29. A dispatch to
the Herald from Washington says : Im
portant teeta with thorite, a sew ex
plosive, are being conducted' by the
board of ordinance and fortifications at
the Sandy Hook proving grounds. Little
is known at the war department of the
characteristics of the new explosive.
It ia the invention of Professor Tattle,
of Oregon, who asserts it is perfectly safe,
and was willing some weeks ago to put a
red-hot poker in a charge of thorite, de
claring it could be done without causing
it to explode. It ia believed to have
picric acid at its base. Tests of the ex
plosive by the inventor are said to have
been very satisfactory, and it may prove
to be the material the army has been
Besides thorite, the ordinance depart
ment of the army has been experiment
ing with joyite, emmensite and dry and
wet gnncotton, paying more attention to
the last-named explosive than to any
other. So far none of them has given
the results desired before adoption for
Captain William Crozier, military at

Hague conference was instructed several
weeks ago to stop in England on bis
way home and ascertain if possible the
ingredients of liddite and the secret of
the fuse used by General Kitchener's
army in the Soudan with snch excellent
effect. It ia untrue that he has been di

Military officers in England have ap
parently been unable to secure ail the
information concerning the explosive
the authorities would like to have. It
ia recalled that emmensite, discovered
in and used by France, was kept a eecret,
but this government finally obtained in
formation of its ingredients and has been
testing it for some years at Sandy Hook.
Tests-of jovite were made by the army
officials several years ago and were not
very successful. The navy department
has tested thorite with considerable euc
cess, and if it continues to be satisfac
tory it may be adopted by the naval
ANT AT WALLU LA
Hold-ups and Robberies are of Daily
Walla Walla, Wash., June 28. The
town of Wallula ia a hotbed of crime.
Not a day passes that from one to ten
robberies are not reported.- The officers
are powerless to apprehend all the cul
prits, and less than half of. them are
brought to justice. One constable and a
deputy are the only officers in the town
While they are attending to one offense,
half a dozen others are committed
Justice of the Peace J. V. Lewis, who
endeavors to nphold the majesty of the
law in that precinct, was in the city yes
terday. He said of the lawlessness
"Wallnla is the roughest town I have
ever Eeen. There is an organized band

of robbers operating there. They divide
into equade, and while one or two of the
number engage the attention of the of
ficers in one quarter of the town, the re
mainder are operating in another.
"It ia no uncommon thing to etand on
the main street and witness a hold-up a
block away, but it is useless for a citizen
to attempt to interfere. I think that the
ringleaders have been captured, however,
and the officers are making every effort
to break up the gang and bring the of
fenders to justice."
Three tougb-appearing hobos were
brought to the city yesterday from- Wal-
Iula. They were arrested for robbery.
A fourth, who got away, with the plun
der, ia being chased by the officers. Half
of the criminal cases before the superior
court at this term haye come from Wallula.
Whitman Wheat Prospects.
Colfax, Wash., June 28. Grain crop
prospects throughout Whitman county
have never been better, although the
acreage in wheat is perhaps 25 per cent
less than last year. During the paat
three days, fifty prominent farmers from
all parts of the country have been inter

splendid prospective yields. Both fall
and spring wheat are now beginning to
head put. .The beginning of the grain

Dangers of Plague.
San Fbancisco, June 29. The bacter
iologist who ia examining the glands
taken from the bodies of the two Jap
anese who jumped overboard from the
eteamer Nippon Maru, is expected to
make hia report today. The fact that
the glands of one of the men were found
to be above the normal eiza gave rise to
the suspicion that the Japanese may
have been afflicted with the bobonic
plagne, hut the facta will not be known
until the expert has finished bis investi-
Bobbed the Glare.
A startling incident, of which Mr.
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, ia narrated by him as follows :
"I was in a most dreadful condition. My
skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tongue coated, pain continually in back
and eides, no appetite gradually grow
ing weaker day by day. Three physi
cians had given me up. Fortunately, a
friend advised 'Electric Bitters'; and to
my great joy and surprise, the first
bottle made a decided ' improvement. I
continued their nse for three weeks, and
am now a well man. I know they saved
my life, and robbed the grave of another
victim," No one should fail to try them.

I awoke last night with severe pains
in my stomach. I never felt so badly in
all my life. When I came down to work
this morning I felt eo weak I could hardly

Siliiation in the Pniliiipes M As
Young Filipinos Garrison Every Port
and State They Will not Yield to
the Americans Though the Whole
of the Islands are Destroyed.
Victoria, B. C, June 29. Advices
from Hakodate state that Captain Saki
cbi, of the steamer Hokoku Maru, just
returned from the Philippines, reports
that in the southern islands the young
Filipinos are constructing fortifications
against emergencies. Every port is
garrisoned by a thousand or so volun
teers, whose weapons, however, are very
crude, only about 20 ner cent being
armed with rifles (Remingtons).
They are, however, full' of patriotism
and state that they will not yield to the
Americana though the whole of the
islands are destroyed. The Hokoku
Maru was warmly welcomed . by the
Filipinos, who consider the Japanese to
be of a kindred race and hope for assist
ance from them. -
The Filipinos were prepared to pay for
arms and ammunition and that Japanese
vessels visiting the islands could take
return cargoes of hemp. Captain Sakichi
says that he only sold the insurgents
two revolvers and the cook's knives.
Chicago, June 29. Captain P. S.

Recruiting Sergeant Jones- says if the
station ia given permission to enlist
colored men, . practically all of the
mustered-out Eighth Illinois volunteers
will be sent to the Philippines. Under
the present physical examination bnt
one man out of ten ia found qualified.
Fifty applicants a day are examined.
Under instructions expected, Captain
Bomus thinks that within the next two
weeks over 200 recruits besides volun
teer bodies will be sent from Chicago.
Deafness Cannot De Cared.

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies
Deafness ia caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube ia in
flamed you have a ' rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed,- Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which ia nothing but an in
