CAPE TOWN, Sept. 28.— Replying to
day to a deputation ' of merchants who
complained of the inefficient freight serv
ice, Mr. Douglas, Minister of Railways,
violently attacked Lord Milner, High
Commissioner for the British In South
Africa, as the cause of the inefficiency.
He said that Lord Milner virtually pre

ed that unless the imperial . demand for
trucks to bring troops to the coast were
complied with he (Lord Milner) would
take measures to prevent goods entering

An immense strike of gold ore was re

capitalists made an effort to purchase
the property, offering several millions of
dollars. Officers of the company laid the
proposition before the stockholders, and
a communication was sent to Dr. Mai

valued at $1,000,000. This was the first In

not sufficiently recovered to decide what
his future plans would be.
Rev. Mr. Maison owes his good fortune
to the fact that he was kind to "the
stranger within his gates."
About eighteen months • ago . a mining

SAUSALITO, Sept. 28.— The passengers
on the train which left Cazadero this af

to-night had an exciting experience in a
blazing forest, and many of them were
for a time fearful that they would never
reach their destination..
There have been a number of forest fires
In the neighborhood of Duncan's "Mills
.and one of the most vigorous of these the
train chanced to encounter. When about
one mile north .of. -the mills, Engineer
Con Coughlin and\ Fireman Clark noticed
that the trees on either side of the track
were ablaze. •
- The train was slowed down and Conduc
tor John Shine was informed of the warm
obstacle in front. After a brief discus
sion is was decided to make the run de
spite the mlnacingr flames.
The engine then started at a good speed
and broke right into the avenue of flre.
The' smoke was stifling and the heat al
most unbearable, but there was no stop
ping of the train on that account. In
fact the train couldn't very well stop
after having entered the blazing area.
After a thrilling run or one mile tho
trainmen and passengers were relieved
by escape into the open. The engine and

FIRE ON BUTTE RANCH.
Ten Thousand Dollars' Wortli of
Property Burned Near "Willows.
WILLOWS. Sept. 23.— The largest and
most disastrous fire that ever occurred
on a farm in this vicinity was the one
this morning on the Butte ranch, owned
by Eppinger & Company, situated about
eighteen miles northwest of Willows. In
some manner as yet unknown the im
mense barn situated on the place took
fire and the flames spread with great
rapidity. In the building were over fifty
head of fine work mules. Before the
ranchmen could release the mules twenty
of the animals were burned to death.
The building was destroyed and the losa
is estimated at $10,000. It Is believed that
the loss is partly covered by insurance.
comedy. One woman on finding her home
ablaze took her canary bird and cage and
ran wildly to the police office. She saved
nothing else. Mrs. Henry Armbrust saved
a box of valuable papers and an old hat
belonging to her husband, leaving her
jewelry and other valuables to burn. Out
in the center . of Hunter street, near
Church, a family had piled furniture and
bedding and had left their two little
babies sitting on the property. The
youngsters found a jar . of Jam and
smeared their faces with it. Some pass
ersby saw the babies, and thinking their
faces were badly burned, carried the
babes to the hospital before discovering
their mistake. People drenched one an
other, sprawled in the mud and tore
their garments. One youth ' saved two
chickens from burning and ran with them
through the streets. Prominent citizens
worked side by side- with the firemen.
Secretary of State Charles F. Curry, a
visitor to Stockton, was one of the most
valiant of the citizen fire-fighters. It is

Delta, a Famous Old
Cceur d'Alene Camp,

Special Dispatch to The Call.
SPOKANE, Sept. 28.— In a few days the
original town of Delta, one of the oldest
mining camps in the Coeur d'Alenes, will
be no more. Every building on the town
site has to be torn down, burned or moved
away. The townsite has been purchased
by the Beaver Creek Gold Mining Com
pany, which will soon start to dredge
that portion of the creek, and it has
issued orders that every lot must be va
The work of removing the town started
yesterday. Some houses have already
been burned. Nearly all the buildings
were of high value at the time of the
boom back in the SO's, but now most of
them are worth but little. Some houses,
however, have been erected recently, and
these will likewise have to be moved.
Thomas Shuster, of Sumpter, Oregon;
who owns the large hotel, arrived in
,town a few days ago and purchased a
tract of land on Brown's ranch some dis
tance east of the townsite and will erect
a new hotel there. It is probable that
other citizens will purchase lots in the
same auarter. The land in this vicinity
consists entirely of hills and valleys. All
the land of the valleys has been secured
as placer ground and this leaves little
room for homes. The only real way out
of the difficulty is to build on the hillside
and here again difficulty Is encountered
as nearly all of the hillsides have been
located as quartz claims.
For nearly twenty years hundreds of
people have been seeking gold and other
precious minerals in this district, but this
is the firs* case in the history of the
wealthy Coeur d'Alenes as far as can be
remembered where people have had to
give up their homes through greed for the
yellow metal. '

NEW YORK, Sept 28.— An autopsy was
performed to-day on the body of James
Craft, who was murdered early Saturday
morning in the Umpire cafe, on Twenty
ninth street, but the surgeon, it was an
nounced, had not been able to determine
whether or not there were traces of
chloral or other poison in the stomach. A
chemical analysis of the contents will be
made to determine the jjolnt. The point
of Interest is whether or not knockout
drops had been given Craft before he
was attacked with the cleaver. If traces
of chloral were found in the stomach, the
police assert this would show a plot to
rob the victim. Mrs. Craft, wife of the
murdered man, said to-day that Craft

ON A MINISTER
Looking north the scene of devastation
was appalling. Nothing was left standing
but the chimneys and a solitary brick
house, and this was but a skeleton and at
'white heat. That the fire did not go en
tirely through to Sutter street on the
east side, was, due to the fact that an
alley gave the citizens and firemen a good
fighting chance to beat back the fire. In
some instances It was stopped within a
few yards of houses that had been aban
doned by their . despairing occupants.
While the scene was shifted to the south
the fire burst out at the front of St.
Mary's Church, but the clergy and
brothers, assisted by "citizens, formed a
bucket brigade and subdued the incipient
blitzes. . . ...
The fire is said to have been started by.
a plumber who was huntings for a leak in
a gas main in the pavilion. He was using
a candle to find the leafc. There "was a
large accumulation of gas in a portion of
the structure, which had been partitioned

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.— The Bureau
of Insular Affairs of the War Depart
ment has made public a report of the
chief quarantine officers of the Philip
pine Islands, dated July 24, 1902, reciting
the efforts of the authorities to stamp out
the plague and cholera in the islands.
The quarantine stations are said to be
the best in the Orient, and the inspection
¦work has been very heavy. As to cholera
the rcjport reads:
I wish to state as pertinent to the manner

that this city is the greatest vegetable mar

potatoes, cabbage, celery an<l lettuce, come

as cabbage, lettuce and celery which are often
eaten in the uneooksd state, apparent in view
of the possibility that a disease iilie cholera
has prevailed In the territory in which those
have been grown. TIpon the appearance of

from Manila for island ports.
The same arrangements were applied to
United States army transports since a large
number of troope are being returned at this
nme. • • • Thus quarantine has been ef
fective, since although forty-five vessels have
had cases of cholera occur on board while
serving in quarantine here, no vessel has had
the disease develop after discharge from quar
antine, and no port in the Philippines has ever
bi»er. infected by vessels from Manila with the
exception of N'ueva Caceras, the latter being
infected soon after the appearance of the dis
ease in Manila by a vessel that had been per
mitted to load in quarantine and sail to Nueva
< aeeras without the five days' quarantine It
was afterward learned that some of the crew
had communicated with the shore in Manila

LONDON, S"ept. 29.— A dispatch from Brussels to the Daily Telegraph says an agree
ment probably will be reached between the heads of high finance in Europe to pre
vent the issue of Roumanian loans -until the oppressive anti-Jewish legislation of that
country has been modified. Such action would embarrass seriously the Roumanian Govern
ment in the redemption of. a large amount of treasury bonds payable in 1904.
There is published in London this morning an interview with the Roumanian Min
ister to Great Britain, M. Catargiz, in which the Minister denies that the Jews in Roumania
are subjected td disabilities different from those imposed upon other , foreigners there. He
says Jewish emigration is not due to persecution, but to severe agricultural depression.
In an editorial article on the. Roumanian. Minister's remarks, the Daily News says if
it were the case "there-would be occasion for a grave protest .from .. other nations than the
United States and Great, Britain, but we are quite sure that the United States would not
have intervened unless it had ample proofs of. its case."' •',
