WAR OF THE RACES
Rioting Continues at
the Spring Valley
LAWLESS HOLD SWAY.
Italians Have Ordered AM
Negroes to Leave the
LIST OF THE DEAD INCREASING.
It Is Thought the Bodies of Many
Blacks Will Be Found In
PRINCETON, 111., Aug. s.— The rioters
and the lawless hold sway in Spring Vai
ley to-night. No arrests have been made.
The mobs commenced operations to-day
by stopping work at the various coal
shafts, and during the entire day the
streets have swarmed with men, and
fresh depredations are expected at any
time. All day both sides engaged in
the bloody riots of yesterday have been
organizing their men and preparing for
further display of force. If the belligerent
parties attempt to carry out the resolutions
adopted by them to-day more bloodshed
cannot be avoided.
It has been impossible to locate the fol
lowing negroes in addition to those re
ported injured yesterday, several of whom,
it is thought, are lying dead in the ravines
surrounding Spring Valley on the west:
Washington Anderson, Archibald Flem
ing, Samuel Johnson, Lewis Martin, Rob
ert Nelson and Jack Elston. Several of
these are known to have been shot and
badly injured, and two young ladies who
came to town late this evening reported
that they saw the prostrate form of a
negro lying in the woods west of town.
Marshal Hicks of Spring Valley says he is
satisfied that one or more bodies will be
found in the woods between Spring Valley
and Marquette. A searching party is be
ing organized to start out from Seaton
The whistles at the various coal shafts
were blown last night and this morning,
giving the signal that work would be done
in the mines to-day, and a large number of
miners turned out with their dinner-pails,
but were confronted on the highways lead
ing to the shafts by Italians armed with
rifles and the various small arms used in
the riots yesterday.
At a secret meeting of the Italians held
at midnight last night the plan of stopping
the men from working was arranged. A
call for a mass-meeting of the miners was
also issued, to be held at the lumber-yard
adjoining the Rock Island depot at 10
o'clock this morning. Over 2000 men as
sembled at the lumber-yard at the ap
pointed hour and the situation was freely
discussed, nearly all of the speeches being
in a foreign tongue. The coal company
was roundly denounced and much inflam
matory language used. After an hour of
general discussion a resolution was adopted
giving the remainder of the negroes until
5 o'clock to-morrow evening in which to
leave the city and to carry off their effects.
Any effects left after that time will be de
clared confiscated and destroyed. A com
mittee was appointed to organize the
Italians and see that the instructions were
carried out. Another committee of five
was appointed to wait upon Manager Dal
zell of the coal company, to demand the
discharge of all negroes and to agree to
employ no new ones for the present.
The committee immediately called at
Dalzell's office and stated its grievances.
Mr. Dalzell in reply said he had nothing
on the subject to state and that it was a
matter he would not discuss. The com'
mittee retired with no assurances.
During the remainder of the day the
streets were crowded with men discussing
the situation. Another meeting of the
miners is called for a late hour to-night, at
which time it is the general impression
the strike will be ordered to continue until
the demands made are granted. The situ
ation is serious.
TWO STEAMERS BURNED
Disastrous Conflagration on
the Cincinnati River-
One Pi'rerhan Driven Insane by the
Heat While Battling With
CINCINNATI. Ohio, Aug. s.— The levee
was visited by a $200,000 tire this afternoon,
and one- half of the Laidley riter steam
boat line was destroyed within two hours.
At 1 :30 o'clock a pile of 1000 bales of hay
Btored in the west end of the Cincinnati
and Memphis wharf suddenly burst into
flames, and in ten minutes the fare had
communicated to the Louisville mail line
wharf, just above. To this wharf were
tied the steamers Big Sandy, Carrollton
and H. K. Bedford, the first two of which
were entirely consumed, their black hulls
sinking into the murky waters at 4
o'clock. An up-river wind was blowing so
Btiffly that, although the Carrollton and
Big Sandy were cut loose, they refused to
float down the stream and remained
against the wharf. The Congo. Levi J.
Workum, Clara Cavot and other boats
were appealed to for aid, but only the tow
boat Bellevue volunteered and towed the
Bedford to a place of safety.
The loss on the Memphis wharf boat is
placed at $20,000 ; on the Louisville wharf
boat, $12,000; on the Big Sandy, $60,000,
and on the Carroll ?on, $40,000. All the
steamers and wharves were the property of
Commodore Laidley, president of the
White Collar line, and were insured for
about two-thirds their value.
The excitement during the fire was in
tense, and several employes received
burns. The following were injured : Su
perintendent William R. Shaw, burned
about hands, arms and neck; Jack Crow
ley, burned about hands, arms and neck;
Fireman William Kibby. back hurt; deaf
and dumb fireman on the Big Sandy, name
unknown, hands and head burned. Fire
man Bennett of engine company 4 was
overcome by heat and driven insane. Sev
f ral children on the boats were rescued at
•oine peril, but with no fatality.
TO ALARM IN HAWAII.
Stories of Filibustering Expeditions Are
CHICAGO, 111., Aug. s.— Arthur Wilder,
the young native Hawaiian, who enjoyed
the confidence of President Dole during
the life of the Provisional government of
the island, does not think there is any
thing in the story published by a San
Francisco paper that a scheme had been
hatched there for the restoration of Queen
Liliuokalani to the throne.
"Our Government is strong enough to
wipe out any partv of exiles or others,"
said Mr. Wilder. "I heard a great deal of
talk in San Francisco about filibustering
expeditions, but nobody in Hawaii is
alarmed. In San Francisco I saw Vwlney
Ashford, who is the reported leader of the
exiles. According to these men in San
Francisco they are relying upon England
for help, as most of them have sent their
claims for damages to the British Govern
ment. A revenue boat is cruising around
Honolulu all the time for the purpose of
keeping out these exiles."
SHIPPED A BOX TO HOLMES.
Qtiinlan Will Be Askxi to Tell What It
CHICAGO, 111., Aug. s.— Detective
Geyer of Philadelphia has rendered the
Chicago police material assistance in the
Holmes case. He has written to Chief
Badenoch requesting him to get from
Quinlan some information about a heavy
wooden box, 4>£ feet long, I\i feet wide
and 1% feet deep, shipped by Quinlan to
Holmes from Chicatro to Tilton, N. H., in
November, 1893. Geyer wants to know
the contents of the box, and suspects it
contained the remains of some of Holmes'
victims. The police are at work on in
formation given them by Quinlan and his
Wife last Friday, but announced to-day
that they had nothing to give for pub
The work of digging^ at the Holmes
Castle has practically been abandoned.
Men spent the morning leveling the dirt
in the basement. The officers made fur
ther examinations of the letters and papers
found in Mrs. Quinlan's rooms, but none
with evidence was brought out.
ANDERSON, Ikd., Aug. s.— Peter Cig
rand, father of Emeline Cigrand, supposed
to be one of Holmes' victims, received the
following to-day, which is supposed to add
another chapter to the Holmes mystery:
Philadelphia, July 31.
To Mr. Teter Cigrdnd, Anderson, Ind. : Is the
inclosed photograph your daughter's? Did
your daughter Phyllis have her picture taken
with Emeline on left hand side of small pic
ture? If so, what date was picture taken and
where? Please return picture and answer to
yours truly, O. Laforrest Perry,
184 Walnut street, Philadelphia.
The picture was taken in Lafayette on
the 4th of July, 1892, and was genuine.
The Cigrands are not able to tell where he
got hold of the picture, as there were but
two of them printed, and one of them is
held by them and the other by the missing
girl. The letter was written" on a letter
head of the Fidelity Mutual Insurance
Company, but Perry's name does not ap
pear on it.
It is thought that he has got some trace
of her, and it is also feared that she is in
an asylum of some kind.
VIGILANT BADLY BEATEN
Decisive Victory for the Syn
dicate Sloop In the
The Defender Easily Leaves Its
Competitors In a Thirty-Seven
NEWPORT, R. 1., Aug. s.— ln the final
run of the cruise of the New York Yacht
Club, a 37-mile beat to windward from
Vineyard Haven to Newport, the Defender
started last and finished first. The new
aluminum and bronze boat beat the Vigi
lant 9 "min. and 9 sec, and was about
twenty minutes ahead of the Jubilee. Thin
was quite an improvement upon the 5
min. and 23 sec. had to her credit over the
Vigilant on the run to Vineyard Haven on
Saturday. When the boats are measured
and the time allowance calculated it will
undoubtedly be found that the Defender
won to-day by beating to windward, even
if she loses tbe Saturday race by a small
The wind to-day was what must be
called a Defender breeze. It was never
less than ten knots nor more than twelve,
and there was a smooth sea — just the
weather the new boat is at her best in.
General Price's Jubilee raced with a work
ing topsail'aloft, while the other big sloops
used club topsails. The weak topmast
may have been responsible for this, but the
Boston boat was plainly no match for her
One of the best opportunities that has
been yet afforded for testing the winward
qualities of the Defender was provided at
the beginning of to-day's race. The Vigi
lant obtained the best position at the
start, and was to windward of the syndi
cate boat. Captain Hoff did not like tak
ing the wind after it had left the Vigilant's
sails, and made a couDle of short tacks
to get away from the Vigilant. Captain
Barr tried to keep between tbe Defender
and the wind, and went about whenever
the Defender did. The Defender was
quicker in stays, and got a little the better
of the short tacks; but Captain Haff, find
ing his antagonist could not be shaken off
that way, held his course for seven miles,
likewise outfooting the Vigilant bv a good
half-mile in that distance, and easily
crossed ner bow to windward.
From that time on the race was a proces
sion, with the Defender, as usual, passing
all the big schooners and little sloops
which were started ahead of her, and lead
ing tne fleet into the harbor. The Emerald
made the best run of any of the schooners
and won in her class. The other winners
were: Constellation, Ariel, Amorita and
The run to-day concludes the cruise of
the club. The special priee for the sloop
making the largest nnmber of best runs
during the cruise was won by the Defender.
The prize for schooners was a tie between
Amorita and Constellation.

THE SAN FBAJS CISCO CALL, TUESDAY, ALWUST <5, Ihys.
FORCE MAY BE USED
Omaha's New Police
Board Determined to
FEELING RUNNING HIGH.
Possible Appointees Ready to
Bring on an Immediate
ANSWER TO THE INJUNCTION.
The Old Commissioners Charged
With Utilizing the Bluecoats
to Hold Office.
OMAHA, Nebe., Aug. s.— "Will Judge
Hopewell define the status of the new
Police Commission to-morrow, or will he
dissolve his restraininc order?" is the all
important question in Omaha ta-night.
Should the court take the latter course and
decline to pass upon the validity of the
new law, there is little question that the
supporters of the new board would use
force in taking possession of the depart
ment. Feeling runs high. No less than 100
men expect places under the new board,
and they are indignant that the matter
should have been allowed to get into the
conns before the new commission assumed
Attorneys for the latter filed their
answer in the injunction case to-day. It
That in the year 1895, and before the new
law referred to went Into effect, D. Clem Deaver
and Charles H. Brown were, at the solicitation
of Edward Rosewater, editor of the Omaha
Bee, appointed by Silas A. Holcomb, Governor
of Nebraska, as members of the Fire and Police
Board of the city of Omaha; that at the time
it was agreed and understood that the said
Brown and Deaver, in the interests of Edward
Rosewater and in his behalf, in violation of
law and under the pretext that the law as
passed in 1895 was unconstitutional, should
hold said offices, and defendants show that, in
pursuance to such design, the said plaintiffs,
George P. Be in is, Charles H. Brown and D.
Deaver, procured the discharge of the police
force and substituted others therefor, and are
now in force and arms holding the same.
That to further prosecute said plaintiff
George P. Bemis procured a pretended injunc
tion to be issued, pretending to restrain the
City Council from approving defendants'
bonds, but said injunction was and is illegal
and void and of no effect, and was procured
with a fraudulent purpose and design of pre
venting these defendants from having legal
status herein and in pursuance of the afore
said corrupt agreement, as defendants are in
formed and believe.
That the said plaintiffs, said suit having been
brought and served too late to prevent the ap
proval of said bonds and the qualification of
defendants, have now commenced this suit to
further delay the defendants herein in getting
the control of such offices and police force, and
to hinder and delay them in the discharge of
their duty, and that the same is brought in bad
faith and without justification.
Defendants further say that no proceedings
have been commenced by the said plaintiffs to
test the rights of these defendants under the
said law by quo warranto, and that said plain
tiffs have not commenced the same; and that
the allegations in the said plaintiffs' petition
that said plaintiffs are about to, or will, com
mence said proceedings and pursue them dili
gently, are without foundation and are not
made in good faith, but arc made for the pur
pose of deception and so that said plaintiffs
may pretend to be acting in good faith In that
The answer also refers to the honorable
action of ex-Commissioners Smith and
Strickler in resigning their positions in
the old board because of the fact that they
recognized the existence and legality of
the new. The answer concludes:
If any dual Board of Commissioners exists,
it will be because said plaintiffs, in violation of
law and in pursuance of a long before precon
ceived plan, and in pursuance of the agree
ment to set aside the law and to violate the
same, will continue through the police force
as aforesaid wrongfully organized, controlled
and created to exercise the fuuctiens pertain
ing to said board.
And the defendants maintain that Judge
Hopewell is said to^have expressed himself
so as to lead people to believe he will dis
miss the contempt case to-morrow. This
6eing out of the way, the only thing to be
decided is the legality of the new board,
and no matter how he decides this ques
tion his decision will be appealed from
this to the Supreme Court, where the real
battle will occur. Today application was
made before the clerk of the Supreme
Court by Mayor George P. Bemis for the
hold-over board, and by Attorney-General
Churchill for the new board for permission
to tile quo warranto papers in the case.
The clerk refused such permission, and re
ferred the parties to Justice Norvall, who
stated that court was not now holding, and
that the cases would have to be docketed
in regular order. That means that the
Supreme Court will not take up the cases
until Ootober or November, and greatly
complicates matters in this city.
An Expert's Idea of the Dry Fly
Cast— Returning Campers.
TJKIAH, Cal., Aug. I.— The man who has no
venison in this vicinity this month either lacks
the incentive to go out and get it or has no
friends to send him a piece.
The law preventing the sale of it and also the
sale of hides is doing incalculable good toward
the preservation of the noblest of game ani
mals California can boast of. The Sportsmen's
Club of Ukiah keeps a watchful eye for viola
tions of the law, and while there are yet vandals
who would wantonly kill more than they need,
and does and fawns, still the fear of punish
ment, which would be swift and vigorous, has
reduced this heartless butchery to a minimum.
As to fishing, the smaller streams are dry,
but good sport is reported in the larger
streams, where the water forms deep dark
pools arid riffles.
In these deep pools and in shady places,
where the willows overhang the deepest waters
and the sandy beach stretches away on the
other side, the dry fly cast lures to the surface
many a gamy hero that looks with scorn on
the angle worm and still fisherman and that
has waited the whole season through for the
fellow who understands his business.
"If you have never tried a dry fly cast," says
our expert angler, H. F. Eastman, "you have
failed to enjoy the greatest sport that can be
had with the fly rod. The finest and lightest
line of drawn gut of silk, with a delicate midge
fly on a No. 16 hook, deep dark pools such as
are found on Russian and Eel rivers, where the
largest and finest fish are in hiding, and you
are ready for sport that discounts all others.
"Secure a position pretty well out of sight of
the pool, where the motion of your arm will
not attract the w»ry frame. Extend your cast
ing-line little by little as you make your first
casts, being careful not to let your fly touch
the water, elongating your line the while
until you can drop your midget in the most
tempting part of the pool, where it may rest
for an instant. A Jerk, a splash and a beauty
has struck at the tempting bait, and he has
bowed his supple back, only to take a run, it
he is well booked, until your line whistles
through the air like a bullet. Now the trial
begins between trout and angler, and a fish
often large enough for a breakfast for four lies
gasping for air as lie takes it in his native
element— in your basket. If large enough."
Eastman's record is thirty-five pounds of
trout taken with this style of fishing, all over
twelve inches, In one evening.
W. M. Estee and Commissioner Ileacock en
joyed an outing in the region of Sherwood Val
ley: and the headwaters of the Noyo and Eel
rivers. They have returned to the City de
lighted with their trip and promise a return
and a longer stay next season. ;.,;■"

Mr. Edison on the New York
Method of Executing
Characterizes as Nonsense the
Statements Many Are Killed

NEW YORK, N. Y., Aug. s.— Several
causes have recently combined to create
doubts in the minds of a few intelligent
people about the swiftness and certainty
with which the death sentence has been
executed in New York State since electric
ity has been adopted by law as the agent.
Occasionally among the hasty and in
adequate reports of accidents to linemen

ful escape from death. Then, too, state

on the contrary, have been squarely
denied, sometimes creep into print, sug

was caused, not by the means which the
law prescribes, but by drugs or the
Electrician Edison was seen yesterday at
his charming home in Llewellyn Park,
West Orange, N. J. To half a dozen ques

characteristically laconic but explicit an
swers. He spoke without hesitation or
evasion and with the earnestness of con
"What do you think, Mr. Edison," asked
the reporter, "about these Btories of the
resuscitation of criminals after electricity
has been employed to inflict the death
"Nonsense." was the emphatic reply.
"Do you consider this method of execu
tion as 'sure death?' "
"Is it painful?"
"No; the action of the electricity is too
rapid for a man to be conscious of it. In this
reßpectits work is instantaneous, although
it is customary to prolong the administra

The contacts between the terminals of
the wire or electrodes and the human
body should be good to insure the passage
of the current through the latter. About
thirty men are killed every year, and
these poor fellows usually touch the
fatal wire only for a second, are partially
protected perhaps by their clothing, and
often receive a current at a lower voltage
than is employed for executions. Yet,
even with such poor contacts, see the re

pains are taken not only to have a suitable
current and to prolong its administration,
but also to see the contacts are thoroughly
made. Great attention is paid to this vital

IXTERXATIOXAL BIZZIAUJD MATCH
An Attempt to Enlist French Players in
a Series of Games.
NEW YORK, N. Y., Aug. s.— Charles P.
Miller, the manager of the Chicago branch
of the Brunswick-Balke Billiard Company,
is now on his way to Paris with the avowed
mission of negotiating if possible with the
French billiard stars of the first rank to
take part in an international billiard tour
ney in New York, Chicago, Boston and
Cincinnati during the coming winter.
Miller said explicitly that he was going to
have a serious talk about international
billiards with the Pario representatives of
the B. B. C. C.
Professional billiards is at a standstill in
Paris and New York, and it is absolutely
essential that something or other should
be done to give billiard-lovers some kind
of a treat. That is just what Miller is go
ing to try to do if the players will let him.
It has been frequently asserted that inter
national tourneys with French talent pitted
against the American sKill at cushion car
roms and balk line would draw a paying
amount of public patronage in this city,
Chicago and Boston, and if it turn out,
upon a rough investigation, that this is
really so, then the French stars will be
Most of them are in Spain now, trying to
revive the success of the academy game,
which the French police knocked the life
out of because betting was allowed in the
Paris cafes on the matches. Miller says
the manufacturers' money is on tap if the
billiardists will meet them in an amicable
spirit of friendly co-operation.

BRIEF CAREER OF CRIME.
They Had Killed Two Officers While
Resisting Arrest for Horse-
SALT LAKE, Utah, Aug. The horge
thieves and murderers, Patsy Coughlin
and Fred George, are behind the bars in
the Salt Lake County Jail. They were
captured this morning in Willow Canyon,
near Grantsville, by Sheriff McKellar,
assisted by a dozen determined farmers.
For eleven days the two boys have success
fully dodged the Sheriff and posses of a
half dozen counties in Utah and Wyoming,
and the Salt Lake police force tired at
them from an ambush last Thursday, but
they escaped. ,
The series of crimes which led to the
now celebrated chase bei;an on the 23th,
when some horses were stolen in Salt Lake,
and. the two boys escaped through the
canyons to Park City, where they had
their first battle. From there they went
over to Wyoming, and when pursued by
Officers Dawes and Sage: of Evanston
turned and shot both dead,
Then the chase oegan in earnest. The
boys decided to return to Salt Lake, where
they had friends. The escape from the
police on the Farmington road and the
subsequent one-sided battle in City Creek
are fresh in the public mind. Since then
the boys have been at Mill Creek, south of
here, where they stole two more horses, on
which to escaped to Nevada and thence to
San Francisco. With this object in view,
they started West, but officers were steadily
on their track, and when it was known
they had passed Garfield Beach the Toole
County officers were notified and sur
rounded the canyon on all sides.
The boys were tired out, and slept
soundly while the officers gathered closely
around them. The sun broke, and still
the starving and broken-down bandits
slept on in the canyon. They awoke at
last, only to h'nd that they had taken a
nap two hours too long and were com
pletely surrounded. They broke their
guns and surrendered, Coughlin stating;
"This is the fir6t time I have had an op
portunity to surrender like a man."
