represented the government. Old
friends and comrades of Logan were
there in profusion. Members of his

marched north on Michigan avenue

2,500 regulars, the largest number
seen together in the west since the
civil war. Every branch of the
service was represented, including
eight troops of cavalry. The governors

Pittsburgh, Pa.. July 24. All the
railroads centering in Pitts" urgh suf
fered from the great storm which
swept with such terrific force through
the Mahoning and Shenandoah val
leys. On the Erie & Ashtabula divi
sion of the Pennsylvania the damage
was particularly severe. The rain re
sembled a cloud-burst in many places,
landslides and washouts were frequent
and many bridges and trestles were
rendered unsafe. Small creeks were
transformed into torrents, while in
some places the roads were turned into
swiftly-running creeks, endangering
It was the most remarkable rain
which ever lell in the county. In the
two washouts on the eastern division
of the Fort Wayne line, one being at
Xcw Galilee and the other at Sum
mit, tons of earth wore swept down
covering the tracks, and they were
blocked for several hours, although
all the expresses got in on time.
The Block House Run track, running
oat of New Brignton, is unfit fui use.
It is a small switch, being only a few
miles long. The Pittsburgh, Youngs
town & Ashtabula, Newcastle &
Beaver Valley, and other lines com
prising the Erie & Ashtabula division,
all suffered severely, and as yet traffic
on several of them has not been re
sumed. At bridges Nos. SS, at Nebo, and 30,
west of Struthers, the eastern abut
ments were carried away. There was
a serious washout at Jenkins' Run on
the Newcastle & Beaver Valley road,
and all east-bound trains are running
by way of Iloinewood.
Bridge 17, east of Moravia, had twe
spans washed away; the trestle at Jen
kins' Run was ruined; one bent in the
Newport bridge and one bent over a
wagon road trestle. Bridge No. 6, west
of Thompson, has two spans out of
line, making it dangerous.
Other damage was done along the
line, and the trackmen on the Erie &
Ashtabula, finding it impossible to re
pair the tracks in any reasonable time,
asked for and received assistance from
the eastern division of the Fort Wayne
DYE A A SUB-PORT.
Made So for the Accomodation of People
En Route to Klondike.
Washington, July 24. In view of
the present rush of travel to the Klon
dike gold fields Secretary Gage has es
tablished a sub-portof entry at Dyea,
Alaska. The action was taken as the
result of an application to the treasury
department by Canada for permission
for Canadian vessels to enter at Dyea,
Alaska, and land passengers and
baggage there. Dyea is about fifty
miles north of Juneau, and it was de
sired to save passengers the annoyance
of disembarking at Juneau and await
ing another steamer for Dyea, the head
of navigation on the route to the Yu
The granting of the application
would have made it necessary in all
cases of vessels clearing for Dyea tc
give a special permit to the deputy at
Juneau, in the case of each vessel. In
order to obviate this directly the sec
retary of the treasury constituted
Dyea a sub-port of entry. This action
was taken under authority of the act
of March 18, 1S1H5, which authorizes the
secretary to establish sub-ports at
such places in Alaska as he may deem
Some objection was made by rep
resentatives from the Pacific coast to
the granting of the application to per
mit Canadian vessels to proceed to
Dyea, but on full consideration of the
question it was thought advisable by
the secretary to exercise the right
clearly given by statute to make Dyea
a sub-port, thus relieving passengers
from the annoyance of disembarking
at Juneau and awaiting other means
of transportation to Dyea.
How the Members of the Cabinet Intend
to Pass the Summer.
Washington-. July 24. The cabinet
meeting yesterday was of short dura
tion and was attended by all of the
members save Secretary Sherman. For
eign affairs did not figure at all in the
proceedings and the only matter of
consequence before the cabinet was
the submission by Secretary Gage of a
plan for the establishment of sub
ports of entry in Alaska to collect
revenues from the goods being im
ported m large quantities into the ter
ritory as a result of the great immi
gration of miners.
There was some talk about the cur
rency message, and it was decided that
it should be sent in only after the tariff
conference report has been passed.
The summer plans of the members
of the cabinet have been roughly ar
ranged. Secretary Sherman will stay
on Long Island for several weeks.
Secretary Gage probably will re
main here in his home at Chevy
Chase, a Washington suburb. Secre
tary Long will make a cruise on the
Dolphin. Secretary Alger, Attorney
General MeKenna and Postmaster
General Gary will spend some time
with the President at Lake Champlain
and Secretary Bliss will go to New Jer
sey. Secretary Wilson alone has not
yet formed any plans.

the prevalence of a heavy rain and

magazine at the Empire mine, operated

in which 20 tons of powder was stored,
was struck by lightning. The build
ing was shattered, and the force of the
explosion was so great that it shook
the foundation of nearly every dwell

Pittsburgh, Pa., July 24. The situa
tion in the district has not materially
changed. The efforts of the arbitra
tion commission have been so far suc
cessful that a call for a meeting of
operators on Tuesday next has been
issued. It is signed by W. P. DeArmitt
for the New York and Cleveland Gas
Coal Co.; J. B. Zerbe for the Ohio and
Pennsylvania Coal Co.; E. B. Young
for M. A. Ilanna & Co.; George W.

and other leading operators of the
district. These names signed to a
notice of a meeting were a sufficient
guarantee to the attendance of the

tion the signing of his name to the
call. lie is now in Chicago.
The Canonsburg region has produced
no sensational features to-day. The
striking miners are still encamped near
the Allison and Boone mines to per
suade workers from going to work, but
as the hearing in the injunction case
was postponed from this afternoon un
til Monday, there is little danger of
any conflict at present because the
mine owners have announced that
their mines would remain closed down
until after the hearing.
So far as the injunction is concerned
the strikers claim it will have no ef
fect, as it restrains them from what
they have no intention of doing. They
say that they will molest no one; that
they are content to wage a battle oi
peace and order, and that as they hav.t
public sentiment on their side they an
bound to win. Should the injunction
be made perpetual the operators, it i i
surmised, will make an attempt to re
sume work. If they do there will b
trouble, as long as there are any strik
ers in the vicinity of the mine.
There are vague rumors of a march
on the mines of the New York and
Cleveland Gas Coal Co. There is n .
doubt among those who are in a posi
tion to know that such a move is con
templated, but just at what time i-i
kept a profound secret.
While all this is going on, the Turtle
Creek, Sandy Creek and Plum Creel:
mines are working steadily and with
out interference. The employes claim
that they will pay no attention to the
strikers and want to be left alone.
On the other hand the miners'
officials claim that their organ
izers who have been at work in secret
have laid the foundation for a general
laying down of tools when the proper
time arrives. Much depends on the
situation in West Virginia. If that
section comes out the New York and
Cleveland mines will naturally be the
No Trouble Yet Experienced at He
Canonsburg, Pa., July 24. No trou
ble has yet occurred at McGovern. No
effort was made by the strikers to pre
vent operations at the mines. About
300 of the strikers returned to Miller'n
Run and Bower Hill yesterday morn
ing to secure food and reinforcements.
A heavy rain fell Thursday night and
very much dampened the ordor of the
strikers as they were camped
in an open field. Orders were
given by the leaders yesterday
morning to the effect that all
entrances to the mines are to be closely
guarded, and any miners caught going
to work would be halted and entreated
to join the strikers. If they refuse
force will be used. Should this plan
fail more stern efforts will be made to
compel the miners to join their ranks.
A brass band and drum corps enliv
ened the scenes about the camp yester
day morning, and a march was made
to the mine through the principal
streets and return.
About forty deputies are on guard at
Cook's mines. The strikers are quiel
and orderly, however, and do not niaka
any threats of violence, yet they are de
termined. No firearms were noticed
about the camp.
To Sue for Forfeit Money.
Pittsburgh, Pa, July 24. Beside,
what they term a battle for bread, the of
ficials of the United Mine Workers have
arranged to make a battle in the courts
for money. It will be for money in
the hands of certain operators in
the Pittsburgh district, kept from
the wages of the men whe
went on strike. In accordance
with instructions received from Na
tional President Ratchford and the
members of the national executive
board, the local district officals have
placed the matter in the hands of theii
attorneys and suits are to be brought
for more than 812,000, the amount
strikers have forfeited. The
suits will be brought on the
validity of ironclad contracts which
the men signed. In these contracts it
was agreed that, as a guarantee of good
faith on the part of the employe, the
employer should retain ten per cent, ol
the employe's wages. When the me
struck this money was declared for

debts," said one of the best known loan
agents of the State, "and they are now
payingoff ata very rapid rate. As things are
nowgoingthe people of the State, and espe
cially the farmers, will soon be well out ot
debt. The large crops of the last few years,
coupled with the close times, have had the
effect of giving the people an appetite for
getting out of debt, and fortunately has also
given them the ability to do so."

that he cannot find takers for one-third of
the amount he would like to loan.
