Special to The Morning Cam.
Wallace, Idaho, July 16.— The feature
ol to-day was the arrests of union men.
There are troops now in every camp.
Ward Wallace, Mullan, Murray, Os
borne, Burke and Gem are all hei i by troips.
Five companies of the Second Infantry from
Fort Keogh, Mont., have arrived at Mullati,
the most desperate point in the country,
and are under the direct command of
Colonel Carlin, as are the forces at Wardner.
Captain Bubb commands the forces at Gem
and Burke, the camps being three miles
apart. Captain Stevenson ol the State
militia holds Osborne. The negro troops
are at Murray in camp 18 mile, from the
Last night the local Grand Army post
took up arms and commenced making ar
rests under command of A. O. Ingalls.
Ingalls is commander-in-chief of this Grand
Army of the Republic of Idaho, and re
ceived orders from Marshal Piukham to act.
He is assisted by Albert Ott, post com
mander and adjutant-general of the State.
Their forces were L. M. Parker, li. M.
Cooper. Ed Doyle. L. W. Scrivner and
Charles Tilden. These old veterans are
well organized, end did good service for the
count They made sever-! arre.!., put
ting their prisoners in the vacant houses.
A large party of strikers started to release
their imprisoned comrades, but the bold
front of the veterans bluffed out the strik
ers. Colonel Carlin this morning dispatched
tro 'PS to relieve the gallant Grand Army
men, and the people in this country are
ready to take off their hats to a Grand Army
This morning 96 union men In the Poor
man and Tiger mines at Burke were ar
rested a. they camp off the shift, and were
rushed down in their working clothes to the
prison at Wallace. The shilt working the
second shaft will next be arrested. The
men were working quietly but belonged to
the union, and every union man in the Coeur
d'Alenes is regard. as an accomplice iv the
Fourth of July Canyon massacre and other
outrages. There will be no compromise.
Every man who has taken the oath of the
union must leave thecountry or be arrested.
Peter ßreen, who, with G. Dal as, repre
sented the Montana unions, has fled. Breen
was prominent as a leader rd unions, and is
a member of the Montana Legislature. It"
is said that he is still a subject of Queen
Victoria, but he i. a member of the Legis
lature just the same, so strong are the
miners' unions in Montana.
Scouting parties start out soon to scour
the hills. Five miles from here, up Placer
Greek, 50 strikers are fortified, at an old
placer camp. They have plenty of pro
visions and ammunition. A prospector
brought in the news. Similar patties are In
every gulch where running water can be
had. For four mouths the unions have pre
pared for this trouble and have established
provisioned camps all through the moun
Among the men arrested at Mullan
was Judge Eraser, a justice of the peace,
and an anarchist agitator, who has long ex
erted an evil influence. He was a leader of
the strikers ami a correspondent fur several
newspapers. W. A. Steele, a hotel proprie
tor. to other agitator, and ... Harsh, the
postmaster. Is also an agitator. None of
them were members of the union, but they
■re men who, for selfish motives, aided and
_.b«-tted_the acts of violence.
The hills are filled with strikers com
pletely* disorganized. President O'Brien,
the arch enemy of law and order, is a pris
oner here, and the strikers have no leader,
and no hope unl*-.s they are re-enforced
from Montana. Every approach to Coeur
d'Alene has been guarded to prevent this
and to arrest the fleeing striker*. Colonel
Carlin says tl'.e backbone of the trouble is
broken and in another day, if the arrests
continue, there will be more prisoner, than
troops in Cceur d'Alene.
'lire prisoners will soon be shipped to
Boise City to await the action of the Fed

The Miners May Yet .11 alter io Force for
Wallace, Idaho, July 15.— N0 more ar
rests were made at Burke to-night, the
night shifts on tbe Burke and Poormans
mines, taking alarm, not reporting for duty.
As many as cud are escaping the guards
and joining the strikers in the mountains.
Fully low strikers are still at large,
camped in gulches not yet penetrated
by the troops. Ninety were camped
in Revenue Gulch, five miles north
east cf Wallace, until to-day and provisions
were brought to them ou packhor.es from
Mullan until the troops occupied that camp.
They moved to-day toward Thompson Pails
in order to be near the Northern Pacific
Railroad so as to get supplies. Fifty-five
hundred armed miners, ail union nieu, have
come into the mountains within the past
few days to re-enforce their brethren, and
all brought guns in their blankets. This
swells the strikers' forces to a formidable
extent and gives rise to dire foreboding.
Deputy United States Marshal iiular.s
represents Governor Wil ley in Canyon
Creek. One .hundred and fifty troops are
holding Gem and Burke to-night.
Ninety-one rifles were smuggled out of
Burke tins morning, and taken up the gulch
to the strikers in hiding in the mountains.
When the miners were taken from work
to-day there were affecting scenes at the
trains. Many of them.were married and had
families, and the women and children clung
to their husbands and fathers, weeping.
The sight moved even the stern soldiers,
but murder had been committed no' 100
yards from the scene of this weeping. Prop
erty had been blown up with dynamite, and
these men were accomplices by being •mem
bers of the union that sanctioned them.
-sheriff Cunningham will be arrested and
charged witu malfeasance in office. The
sentiment is strong against him, and he is
strongly suspected of having stood in with
the strikers. Jack Wait and Joe Campbell,
his two main deputies, resigned a day or
two before the trouble broke out. The
office of Sheriff has been a subject of re
proach here for some lime ana no one could
be elected unless he stood in with the
miner., drank with them and overlooked
The citizens of Cceur! d'Alene want a
permanent garrison located here. The
project will be agitated, too, and there is a
strong s-ibility lhat it will go through.
One hundred and fifty prisoners are
crowded into three houses here to-night
near Colonel Theaker's camp at the mouth
oi Placer Creek on the outskirts of the
camp. Jt is difficult to find accommoda
tion, for them. Some disposition will be
made of them soon, as the troops are over
worked as it ib now.

the miners submitted quietly to arrest.
Some of them hare gone to the hills, but all
the regular exits are closely guarded and
their only escape is by very hard travel over
the St. Joe range into Northern Montaua.
It is thought, however, that hunger will
drive them back into tba valley, where they
will be compelled to surrender.
Van B. de Lashiuutt, one of the mine
owners, stated to an Associated Press re
porter to-night that most of the non-union
moil driven out of Warded, were returned
to-day and that it is quite probable that the
Bunker Hill and Sullivan mines will be

New TOBJE, June IG.— Smalley's letter to
the Tiibuno from London says: There ha.
been a very considerable Changs of scene
since the end of last we» k. The English
boroughs had then declared by a large ma
jority for Salisbury and union, and though
it was not believed that this preponderance
could be maintained the best judges on both
sides still thought that the final majority for
Gladstone and home rule would be small.
It, now promises to be toward 50. the
actual known majority this morning being
40. The net Gladstonian gains in the Eng
lish untie, up to this morning are no less
than 29. Tho net gain in the English
boroughs was __. giving a total net Glad
stonian gain of _.'>. The Unionist majority

_'.' The Unionist majority in the
whole of Great Britain is 26, and the
hone rule majority in Ireland 46, These
fi_ure. bring out clearly the true nature of
the con test and its result. Ireland gives
the casting vote in her own favor, which
she has the clear constitutional right to do.
'I lie total of votes cast throughout the
kingdom thus far sheer an anti-Unionist
majority of nearly 200,000. This would, per
haps disappear if the votes in the uncon
tested counties could bo counted.

The returns for the House as a whole are
now in for all but 49 seats, many of which
will b-* known to-day. Not men than six
of the remaining scats are thought doubt
ful. It is, therefore, possible to consider
the general result of the election as pretty
well settled. *
It is settled in Ireland, also, where the
SBti-Parnellltei have made good their pre
dictions and beaten the Parnellites hand
somely. They stand 59 to 8. The changes

Tlie net result of this long struggle is, ns

be supposed that he regret* it. lie has
changed his mind since, in lW9b\ he pealed

Peculiar Religious Notions of the Central
City of Mexico, July IS.— The action of
the Mexican Government in its movement
toward confiscating the property of the
Catholic church in this country can be ap

what absurd extremes the ignorant Mexican
officials will go on some occasion;. Some
days ago at Torreou, on the Mexican Central
Railway, a man was brought to the station
ail cut and hacked to pieces. He had been
taken for a conjurer and was being punished
fo: causing the severe drought there last
year. This, however, is not a marker to
what was done at Castaaas a few days ago.
In the department of Castanai there had
been no rain for nearly a year and people
were brought to such a pass that they were
actually dying of thirst, to say nothing of
the total destruction of all crops and other
