"The Cripple Creek district expert

"Another party of ueported miners

Denver, June 13.—A Republican spe

About 10 of the deported miners
from Cripple Creek left here at mid
night last night for La Junta, Col,
Pueblo and Denver. The remainder
are staying in town and are quiet
and orderly and have been so since
their arrival. They have paid cash
for their meals and lodging and made
their purchases at stores and seem to
be well supplied with funds for im
mediate needs. They are worrying
considerably over the welfare of their
families who were left behind in Crip
pie Creek, and say that they are
willing to leave the district forever
If their wives and children are al
lowed to join them. It is probable
that a considerable number of the ex

work on the ranches.
It is understood that all the big

Chicago, June 13.—Organized labor

Miners Not First to Fire.
Rockvale, Wyo., June 13.—Coal min

ville when John Carley, one of the
Cripple Creek miners, was killed by
the militia, deny the published report
that the miners were first to fire.
Neither were they entrenched behind
rocks waiting for the militia, accord

peared on the scene and fled Immedi

miners deny having fired a shot. They
say it would have been easy for them
to have completely annihilated the

I RUSSIA IGNORES BRITISH KICK
Io Declaring Certain Foodatvffa Con
troband of War.
St. Petersburg,-Jane 16.—Russia will
not heed the British representations in
regard to the action of the Russian
government in deolaring rice and other
foodstuffs to be contraband of war.
The Russian position in relation to
foodstuffs being contraband is as an
nounced by the Associated Press when
the declaration was issued. It oovers
only full cargoes, destined for Japan,
where thb assumption is that they are
designed for the use of the enmey's
army. In effect the Novoe Vremya
contends that Russia's position is
rather analogous to Great Britain's
during the Boer war, notwithstanding
Great Britain's protest against food
stuffs being declared contraband at the
time of the Franoo-Chinese war in
1885 and the Japanese-Chinese war in

USE THE HALF ROUND TIE.
Railroads May Cut Down Big Item of
Washington.—After a study and re
search covering a period of many years
the bureau of forestry has at last been
able to announce me success of a new
form of railroad tie, "the half round
tie," which, it is claimed, will greatly
minimize maintenance expenses and,
in conjunction with the introduction of
appliances known as screw spiKes and
screw dowals, bids fair to become a
great blessing to the railroad industry
of this country. Arrangements are al
ready under way for the extensive in
troduction of the appliances, the need
of which has been felt so pronounced
ly of late.
The government report recently sub
mitted contains some valuable infor
mation on this subject, and it says:
The annual consumption of ties on
203,132 miles of railroad track in this
country is 114,000,000, and it is yearly
becoming harder to meet this demand.
RUSSIANS WERE TRAPPED.

Newchwang, June 13.—Information
was received here, through heretofore
reliable ohannels that part of the Jap
naese force left at Hnlantien to check
mate the Russians' southward move
ment to relieve Port Arthur, was at
tacked southeast of* Shungmao. After
slight fighting the Japanese made a
false retreat,the Russians hotly follow
ing them, when the Japanese made a
flank movement, catching the Russians
in a trap. The Russians losses are
placed at 800 men. They fell back on
Kaichou and began to retreat along
the Baimatgn-Tsaiohon road. About
2000 Russian infantry from Kaichon
passed through Newchwang today, ac
companied by a large supply and hos
pital train. The troops appeared to be
fl a 8ged out and showed every indica
tion of a long forced march.

A certain night school la in session
three evenings a week in a cavernous
building on the river front One
mounts a draughty staircase, gropes
through bleak passages that echo to
the tread and enters a gas-lighted,
odoratlng classroom, where the air is
filled with a murmur like the sound of
rain on the roof; it is the diligent
scratching of a hundred pens on a hun
dred copy books. Boys of many na
tionalities, of many ages, ranging from
12 to 80, and of many degrees of grimi
ness, toil stoically at their copying.
The "smallest boy" is very small and
particularly grimy. His head droops
devotedly above the work, and his fin
gers are fairly paralyzed with the rig
idity of his grip on the pen. "Truth
cruthed to earth shall rlth again," he
whispers to himself, repeating the copy
book text as he laboriously transcribes
it Nothing has been able to break the
"littlest boy" of lisping. It is the lisp
of nervous childUhness, and in aston
ishing contrast to the astuteness of his
vocabulary on occasion.

now it is the "smallest boy's" turn to

better. I kept on taking them and
