ter written at Dyea, Alaska, dated Aug.
4: "There are nearly 1.800 people on the
Dyea and Skagaway routes and both
trails are blocked. People are throwing
away their packs and provisions and
rushing headlong to the mines. Great
distress, hardships and sulTerirp and
possible death from hunger and ex

an opinion that is entertained by all
old Alaska prospectors who have visited
that part of the world In late years aad
know the situation."
Jones is one of thi two men whose

Berlin, Aug. 17. The Vossische Zelt
ung publishes a dispatch from Hammer,
fest, Norway, which says that one of the
searchers for Herr Andree in a fast
steamer met the sealing vessel Aiken
about July 22 and learned from her
captain that one of the crew had shot
a pigeon between North Cape and Sev
en Islands on the north coast of Lap
land, bearing a message addressed to
The Aftenbladet, Stockholm. The mes

Deputy Strikers' Crnaade la Illinois.
Hazelton, Pa., Aug. 17. Twenty-five
hundred miners of the Lehigh and
Wllkesbarre collieries in the Honey
brook district went on strike yesterday
morning and at a meeting last night re
solved In a body to stand together. This
is the first defection among the miners
of eastern Pennsylvania. Apart from
the wage question the men demand the
discharge or transfer of Superintendent
Jones, and the feeling against him is so
Krong that he moves about with an
armed escort and his house Is guarded
day and night. At the meeting last night
Joseph Keshilla was elected president
of the meeting. Keshilla represents the
Hungarians. Nillie Duse was elected
vice president to represent the Italian
element and Alex Mullen represented
the English-speaking miners. Resolu
tions were adopted declaring that the
men would stand together if an attempt
was made to discharge them for partic
ipating in the strike movement.
Original Cauae of the Trouble.
Thirty-five drivers went out on Satur
day for an increase in wages: Yester
day morning 2,500 miners Joined them.
The men had no organization, but a
branch of the United Mine Workers' as
sociation was started yesterday morning
and 600 men at once signified their w 111
lngness to Join. Chief Organizer Fuhey,
of Pcttsville, was sent "for. The men
held a meeting Sunday night in Mapl
chlk's hall and there decided to make
the strike general. The entire force of
coal and Iron police, carrying Winchester
rifles was on hand to guard the collie
ries. The strikers assembled on the hill
alKtve the worksat Audenreid and a crowd
of 300 men marched past the deputies
to the breaker. At a given signal the
men at work left their places. Those
who were hesitating were guarded by
strikers and taken past the deputies,
who did not attempt to molest the men.
Had a Wild Time at Herminie.
Greenshurg, Pa., Aug. 17. Wild dis
order prevailed in the vicinity of Her
minie and the Ocean Coal company's
works last night. The 200 miners who
came from the river district yesterday
were successful in bringing the miners
at Herminie out. About 175 men quit
work about 3 p. m. They all marched
over to the Arona and Madison works
and proceeded to fill up with "Polinki."
They threatened the miners at Arona
and Madison, who number about 250
men. Intimating that if they did not quit
work they would be burned out. The
incendiary language created much ex
citement, and it is likely that deputy
sheriffs will be sent to the scene. The
Madison and Arona miners are not fa
vorable to striking, but last night con
sented to attend the meeting of the
strikers to night at Madison. It is ex
pected that a few of the miners at these
works will Join the strikers, but a great
majority will not heed the appeals of the
strikers. Mrs. Jones addressed the even
Strikers Reaort to Violence.
Cumberland, Md., Aug. 17. From In
formation received here last night most
serious trouble is likely to occur among
the miners near Corinth, W. Va., caused
by the release of three Italians who were
arrested charged with threatening to
blow tip the mine and brick plant of the
Oakland Coal company. The release of
the men tended to encourage the other
strikers, who, armed with guns, went
to the house of six men who had been
at work, broke into It and destroyed
their property. Ex-Deputy United
States Marshal Wheeler was guarding
the miners and was shot at, but made
his escape to Oakland and reported the
facts to Superintendent Anderson, who
resides there. Since the rioting has
commenced there is no telling where it
MAT BE A STRIKE VICTOR V.
Tho Decision of the Judges in the Pitts
burg Injunction Case.
Pittsburg, Aug. 17. Yesterday was
fraught with exciting incidents in mat
ters pertaining to the miners' strike.
Mutiny in the strikers' camp, a miyder
in the deputies' ranks, filing of criminal
and civil suits against the De Armits,
and the hearing in the Injunction case
against President Dolan and others kept
both sides to the struggle busy and on
the qui vive all day long. The hearing
in the injunction case before Judges
Stowe and Collier was perhaps one of
the roost important and interesting ever
held in a Pennsylvania court. It was
a hearing in which both capital and the
rights of labor were interested and the
decision is expected to have a telling ef
fect cn the conduct of the great coal
miners' strike which has been on since
July 5. From the testimony adduced and
from the expressions of the court it can
safely be said that there will be some
surprises. That the injunction will be
materially modified there can be no
doubt, which cn its face would indicate
a victory for the strikers.
The preliminary decree has been con
tinued pending a consultation of the
Judges and an opinion will probably be
handed down by noon today. Judge
Collier said In court that the strike
would go down In history as one of the
wonders of the country and remarkable
on account of the utter lack of disorder,
for which the strikers are commended
and have the sympathy of the court.
Said he: "There can be no question as
to what our duty is under all the testi
mony, but I am somewhat in doubht as
to whether or not the order should not
be modified. We cannot determine this
without a consultation." Judge Stowe
sa'.d last evening: "This Injunction will
not Justify the issuing of an attachment
against any of the marchers who are
not found In company with the men
named Ic the injunction."
He let it be understood that the Injunc
tion is not so sweeping as has been
thought; that only the five men named

London, Aug. If. The Times publishes
a two-column special article today re
viewing the effects of closing the India
mints in conectlcn with the visit of the
American bimetallic commission. It
says: "The closing saved the Indian
government from losses incident to a
heavy fall in exchange and consequent
ly from a disastrous increase in the
burden of its gold obligations. It is
undoubtedly true that it also helped to
keep down the gold value or silver bullion;
but may not the question be raised
whether the low price of silver is r.ec
esarily disastrous to that India which
purchases it so largely ? Since 1893 India
has been the only real wholesale cus
tomer for silver. Other customers are
of the retail order. The delicate adjust
ment cf the relative prices of the rupee
and silver formerly existing has been
rudely shattered by recent events. Since
1S96 the rupee has risen and silver has
Forces Are Too Tremendous.
. "The fact is, the forces now acting
upon the price of silver have become too
tremendous to be dominated by such del
icate influences as proceeded the defeat
of Bryan's silver party and Japan's
adoption of the gold standard. These
events have proved causes too potent to
be withstood." The article in conclud
ing says: "The closing of the mints was
Justified, and all that is now neded to
bring a great experiment to a success
ful ending is a little courage and pa
tience, as well as resources, on the part
of the financiers of the Indian empire.
At the same time plain and straightfor
ward language is advisable upon one
point. The Indian statesmen tampered
too long with bimetallism. The flirta
tion, which seems so innocent and in
nocuous, has already cost them dear.
But for that the government would have
assented to the closing of the mints long

diplomacy in sending a bimetallic com

the writer, "to treat seriously a com

"Moreover, British investors in Amer

certain, we would be very foolish to do
anything for silver. Even should the
United States and France agree to adopt
bimetallism and Kngland to reopen the
Indian mint?, it would only bolster up
silver for a brief space, to fall again to
its proper market prices; so that Indian

HOG CHOLERA CAN BE CURED.
Case in Which Fifty-four Out of Sixty-two
Sick Plga Were Made Well.
Dubuque, la.. Aug. 17. The fact that
hog cholera is curable has again been
demonstarated on the farm of the Du
buque Fruit and Produce company near
this city, where, tinder the direction of
Division Freight Agent Clemens, of the
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul rail
road, fifty-four out of sixty-two sick
hogs were treated and saved. There
seems to be no doubt that the hogs had
a genuine attack of cholera at the time
the treatment was commenced.
Last year 3.000,000 hogs died in Iowa
of this disease. The agents of the Chi
cago, Milwaukee and St., Paul Rail
road company have been using their
remedy for over a year and have suc
ceeded in saving fully 90 per cent, of the
hogs treated along the line of their
