LOSS OF THE TUG MOGUL
Wrecked Off Cape Flattery
While Trying to Save a
There Was No Insurance on the
Vessel, Which Was Valued
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., May 14.—
In an attempt to recover a heaving line
worth 75 cents the British tug Mogul of
Victoria, valued at $25,000, was wrecked.
Further particulars show that the tug,
after towing the bark Darra to sea Sunday
morning, tried to run alongside the vessel
to secure a heaving line. The sailing ves
sel struck the Mogul's bow, tearing away
her stem ana opening up the seams of her
hull, through which the water flowed
rapidly. The accident happened a few
miles west of Cape Flattery, and the tug,
though in imminent danger of sinking,
headed for Keah Bay, inside the straits,
but she filled so rapidly that it was neces
sary to beach her two miles inside of
Tatoosh light among the rocks. Not a
moment was lost, as her officers aver she
could not have run another mile.
The tug will prove a total loss, with the
exception of her machinery and boilers.
The Mogul was in command of Captain
Smith of Victoria and was owned by the
British Columbia Tugboat Company, the
principal stock of which is held by
the Puget Sound Tugboat Company of
this city. She was uninsured.
SJSyT TO BERISG SEA.
The Revenue Cutter Grant Receives Vn-
expected Order* to Sail.
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., May 14.—
Unexpected orders came from Washington
to-night for the revenue cutter Grant to
immediately prepare for sea. Some days
ago the department ordered the cutter laid
up for thirty days to effect necessary re
pairs. To-day, when the work was fairly
commenced, orders came to suspend opera
tions and prepare for a cruise for the North
This movement is thought to have been
actuated by the refusal of the British
authorities to renew Bering Sea regula
tions and the desire of the United States
Government to communicate with its cut
ters now patrolling the sea. Under the
present complicated arrangements should
other cutters seize British sealers upon the
high seas for violation of the sealing regu
lations serious complications might arise
between the two Governments.
As soon as the Grant is ready for sea she
will leave for the north in search of Com
mander Hooper of the cutter Rush, to
whom dispatches from the department
will be delivered.

ARIZONA REDS MARAUDING
Several Miners Reported to
Have Been Slain Near
The Apache Kid at the Head of a
Band of Renegade Cattle-
DENVER, Colo., May 14.— Colonel Ward,
acting commander of the Department of
Colorado, received a dispatch late this after
noon that the cavalry troops sent out from
Fort Bowie are close on the trail of the
Indians who were reported yesterday to
have fired upon miners near Fort Bayard,
Ariz., killing several, and who have been
rounding up cattle and horses and com
mitting other depredations. The Apache
Kid is said to be the leader of the band of
WILCOX, Ariz., May 14.— 0n Sunday
evening a courier came in, stating that
twelve armed Indians were seen Saturday
prowling around the hills in the vicinity
of Buckhorn Basin, where the mines are
being worked. The miners at once left
their claims after being notified, and have
congregated together for protection to
themselves and tne few scattered families.
This locality is near the abandoned post
of Fort Bowie and is some twenty miles
east of Wilcox. Monday morning another
report was brought in from the new gold
find in the south pass of the Dragoon
Mountains, twenty miles south of here,
that six Indians, fully armed, were seen
there. They attacked a prospectors' camp,
driving the prospectors from their claims
and firing four shots at one of the men,
compelling him to jump for safety from a
high ledge, severely injuring himself.
This morning responsible reports were
received from Graham County stating that
a band of fifteen heavily armed Indians
were seen last evening at sundown seven
miles south, of Clifton rounding up horses
of citizens. Much alarm is felt. To-day a
body of citizens take up the trail. This
morning one troop of cavalry left Fort
Bayard, N. M M for the scene, but long
marches are necessary to reach the scene
of reported danger. The citizens are feel
ing very wrought up and insecure.
The Indiana are reported to be in dis
tress from insufficient rations and trouble
is predicted, with no adequate military
protection. Only a few availahle troops
to quickly reach the locality are at Fort
Grant, and under orders to move inside
of a week, hence all are packed up. The
abandonmeut of Bowie leaves the whole
southern country open to ravages, and it
would not surprise those who fceep watch
of the indications to see the present trou
bles from miscellaneous small bands now
off the reservation, bent on rapine and
murder, end in a general outbreak.
SOLOMON VILLE, Abiz., May 14.-
Sheriff Wight was notified to-day that
fifteen Apache Indians were seen yesterday

miles from Clifton, rounding up horses.
Indians were reported as seen in that vicin

not verified. The command at Fort Grant
has been notified.

VALLEJO WATER WAR
Suit Brought Against
the City by a Private
HOWISON A DEFENDANT.
The Mare Island Commandant
Unwillingly Drawn Into
WOULD SHUT OFF THE MAINS.
It Is Charged That the City Cannot
Legally Supply the Naval
VALLEJO, Cal., May 14.— The city own
ership of the water-works has brought
about litigation that promises to cause
much trouble. The Vallejo Water Com
pany is arrayed against the city of Vallejo.
"When Vallejo by a called election de
cided in favor of city ownership of the
works there was bad feeling on the part of
those interested in the private concern. At
the election many charges were made that
strong influence had been brought to bear
to defeat the proposition. They were never
traced to reliable sources. Immediately
after the bonded indebtedness of the city
was sanctioned the city started to supply
private consumers and all other places.
Mare Island had long lacked a proper
water supply and a contract was made by
the city with the Government to supply
the naval station. At the same time the
Orphans' Home, a charitable institution,
was also supplied and is to-day.
Suit is now commenced by the old water
company to make the city relinquish its
right as to furnishing water to either place.
The Government works is made the base
of the attack, and, together with Vallejo,
Commandant Howison is made defendant.
Attorney Heynemann of San Francisco
will apply to the Superior Court of Solano
County for a writ of review to-morrow.
The City Trustees are willing to fight, and
an interesting suit is looked for. As to the
Orphans' Home, the Trustees assert that
they will furnish water gratis if need be
sooner than give the right to the old com
pany to assert to whom the city shall fur
SEARCHIXO FOR XOTEB. ■
The Missing Contractor Will Be I'rose-
cured If He Is Captured.
VALLEJO, Cal., May 14.— The disap
pearance of Contractor Noyes and his loca
tion in Oregon has caused many who were
before inclined to believe insanity the
cause of hi 9 departure to avow that he in
tended to decamp.
At a meeting of interested parties to-day,
his bondsmen decided that they would pay
a penalty involving $1500 and allow Miss
Dr. Lane to finish the structure that Noyes
so abruptly left uncompleted. The belief
is expressed that Xoyes will be brought
back, and if he can be taken into custody
he will be tried on a charge of obtaining
money under false pretenses.
WORK OA' THE MOAAOXOCK.
The Seto Vessel Hill Soon Be Ready for Its
VALLEJO, Cal., May 14.— Work on the
Monaduock is nearing completion, which
indicates that the vessel will be ready for
her trial trip in about three months.
Workmen are engaged in placing and con
necting the steam pipes in the engine and
dynamo rooms, and arranging electric
wires, speaking tubes and ventilators
throughout. Everything being done is
well done by the skilled workmen, and it
is safe to say that when tested, it will be
found satisfactory in every particular.

DETROIT, Mich., May 14.— A Miss
Tomlinson of Brooklyn, N. V., married C.
J. White a little less than twelve years ago
in that city. It appears that she knew

were not safe and advised her to deposit
her money in a safe deposit vault. He
arranged all the details and when she went
to the vault to deposit her money she

of sleight-of-hand he deposited a lot of

leads them to believe that White has no
less than seven wives— one in Glasgow, an

BELIEVES IN BETTER PAY
Labor Commissioner Wright
Talks Upon Labor
Says It Is to the Advantage of Em
ployers to Treat Employes
NEW YORK, N. V., May 14.-United
States Labor Commissioner Carroll D.
Wright was at the Fifth-avenue Hotel
last night. Speaking of labor matters over
the country he said :
"I have been censured somewhat for a
remark attributed to me. I was quoted as
saying that in my estimation there would
be no strikes this summer. It waa simply
a misconstruction. The idea I meant to
convey when I made the statement was
that there would be no strikes this sntn
mer that would assume the proportions or
importance of the labor troubles of last
summer. Of course there will in all prob
ability always be strikes, but I think they
will amount to very little this summer."
Referring to the recent strikes in Chicago
which resulted in violence Mr. Wright
"I do not think that the labor troubles
there will be of any great duration or pro
portion. Of course I don't want to talk of
the causes or who is right and who is
wrong, but from my own observations I
think that the Chicago trouble will be
speedily adjusted. One thing which pleases
me is the voluntary raising of wages in
Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and
"West Virginia and that confidence in the
future seems to be fully restored. As a re
sult of this old plant-, are resuming and in
the vicinity of Pittst#rg alone over 10,000
workingmen have received an advance
during last week.
"That is in direct line with my creed.
The gospel I preach is fellowship between
employer and employe. If employers
would raise wages when times are good, as
they are now doing, the men would not be
suspicious when their wages were cut in
periods of financial depression, but would
understand and bear their portion of the
burden as it ttood, and a wholesome recip
rocal policy would be maintained."

AMALGAMATION TALKED OF.
Catholic Knights and the Young Men's
Institute May Unite.
OMAHA, Xebb., May 14.— The National
convention of the Catholic Knights of
America convened at Chambers' Hall in
this city this afternoon at 2 o'clock with
250 delegates in attendance, representing
every State in the Union. This forenoon
the delegates, together with the visiting
members of the uniformed rank, proceeded
to St. Philoma's Cathedral, where pon
tifical high mass was celebrated by Arch
bishop Gress of Ogden. The services were
impressive, and were attended by large
numbers of citizens. At noon the uni
formed rank paraded the principal streets
headed by the First Eegiment band.
The Catholic Knights were in convention
to-night discussing routine business. Presi
dent Shinellas asked what the chief ques
tions before the convention would be. He
admitted that the movement for the con
solidation of the Catholic Knights and the
Young Men's Institute would be one of
them, but hazarded no conjecture as to
what would be the outcome. He denied
the allegation made by some of the dele
gates that the scheme was favored chiefly
by delegates from Southern States, assert
ing that it had even more support in the
North than in the South. Personally he
is in favor of the amalgamation if it can
be properly accomplished. The conven

MANGLED IN THE MILL
Six Men Killed by the
Bursting of an Unsafe
Four of the Victims Torn Limb From
Limb and Their Remains
WEST BIRMINGHAM, Pa., May 14.—
This afternoon the bodies of eight men
horribly mangled, scalded and disfigured
were picked out from the ruins of toe Peck,
Haskell <fe Cobbs Sawmill here, the victims
of an explosion of the boiler in the mill.
Five men were dead, and two of the three
others have since died.
Those killed outright were: Clande
English, James Mowers, Eugene Merrick,
Lyman Perry, Charles Rover, Caleb Con
Fatally injured: Albert De Groat was
so fearfully mangled by boiler iron that he
soon died. Ben Cridley was injure* in
ternally and sustained a broken leg, but
The mill was run by steam, generated in
an old eighty-horse-power boiler, which,
it is reported, had been condemned by an
inspector a few days before.
Thirteen men were employed in the mill.
This morning they were busy at work
when a bolt broke, shutting down the
operations. While it was being repaired,
nobody paid any attention to the boiler,
which was making steam at a prodigious
rate, for a hot fire had been kindled un
Suddenly there came a boom, as if from
a cannon, followed by a cloud of steam,
dust and smoke which rose high in the
air. Four of the victims were torn limb
from limb and their remains scattered
about the mill and the immediate vicinity.
Parts of the boiler were thrown Hundreds
of feet. The mill was almost entirely de
molished. The victims were horribly
mangled, having their heads crushed to a
jelly and being recognizable only by their
clothing. The dead men were all married
and had families.

President Harrison says regarding the re
port that he has permanently retired from
jury practice that it is a mistake. He will
not engage in any more jury trials away
from home and will confine his practice
mainly to arguments before the courts.
A NOBLE BENEFACTOR
Hundreds Will Reap the Benefit of Hi*
The benevolent man is always a pleasant
theme for the pen of wiiter and historian, and
this was what the late Mr. J. C. Wilmerding
proved himsetf pre-eminently to be. Few there
are who have not heard of his magnificent be-
quest to the Btate of California, amounting to
$400,000 to build a mechanical school; but
not all are, perhaps, aware that he amassed his
fortune selling Peruvian Bitters. Wilmerding's
generosity in founding such a college, while
great, is not greater than his services to man-
kind in giving to the world the celebrated
Peruvian Bitters, for these stand prominently
forth as the greatest benefaction to the publio
health which is known to modern science.
The Peruvian Bitters are a certain remedy
against loss of appetite and all forms of ner-
vous troubles. They are a pleasant, invigor-
ating beverage, not a physic, and their use
speedily corrects disordered functions, restores
wasted energy, repairs lost nerve force, induc-
ing regular sleep, and healthy, natural appe-
tite, and tones up the system generally to its
normal condition. They are better than whisky
or brandy, for they accomplish all that either
could without Dinning the risk of creating an
appetite for stimulants, since the principal
ingredient— Cinchona Bark— is an antidote for
dipsomania, as well as a remedy for colds,
coughs and all malarial diseases. Peruvian
Bitten by their large sale, no less than the
wholesale cures they have effected, have dem-
onstrated themselves to be the finest nerve
tonic and good appetizer, producing a healthy
stomach and cheerful brain.
