Patrick Lillis, a citizen of Roauoke,
who resides on Sevouth avenue n. o., hail
au experience on Tuesday morning last
which lie will not care to auaiu have re
plated. In fact, Mr. Lillis came ex?
tremely near to losing his life, beside all
the valuables which happened to be ou
He lifts been for some time employed at
Iron Gate, but owing tD the works shut?
ting down he concluded to come back to
Roauoke where his family is located.
Upon arriving at Clifton Forge he found
that there would bo no passenger train
for Uuchanau until the ^following day.
So in order to rench home Tuesday morn?
ing Mr. Lillis concluded to ride a freight
tc Buchanan. He soon found a comfort?
able position on a lumber car which was
located between two box cars.
When the train started two strangers
boarded the same car and for some twenty
miles nil went smoothly, but soon after
passing Eagle Rock one of the strangers
approached Mr. Lillis and putting a gun
within fifteen inches of his face com?
manded him to hold up his hands. Mr.
Lillis, utterly astounded,demurred to the
proposition,but as the gleaming burroljjof
the revolver seemed eo grow larger, ami
thr robber assumed a morn threatening
attitude, it needed only a repetition ol
the command to enforce obedience ou the
part of Mr. Lillis.
His hands ?went up and the^man with
the gun ordered his compouion to search
Mi. Lillis. This was quickly and syste?
matically done, aud it was only a few
moments before -be was minus of his
picketbook and all his money, also a sil?
ver watch. Not content with robbing
him of all his valuables tho scoundrel
held the gun on him and ordered him to
leap from the moving train. For an in?
stant he hesitated, but choosing between
tho chance for life offered him and the
certainty of* death should he remain
aboard the train he sprang to the "end of
a box car and swung as low as possible
from the step and let all holds go, leaving
the victorious robbers in charge. The
train was running at full speed.
? Mr. Lillis does not remember striking
the ground,but knows that he alterwards
arose iu a dazed condition, terribly bruis?
ed and shaken up. Alter wandering up
aud down the track for some distance, he
balled a passing freight and gave the
alarm. lie was then taken to Buchanan,
where he made a thorough search for his
assailants but without avail. No suspi
( ion s looking characters were seen by the
agent at Buchanan who filled the descrip?
tion given by Mr. Lillis of the .robbers,
and they were supposed to have come in
the direction of Roanoke.
Mr. Lillis in speaking of the affair to a
Times reporter said that it was a thou?
sand wonders that his fearful fall fiom
the train did not kill him outright. He
firmly believes that if he had been paid
off before leaving Iron Gate and bad had
the money in his possession that, lie
would have been killed and his body
thrown under the wheels on the train.
BENSATION IN .WARRENTON.
The Commonwealth's Attorney Fined for
Contempt of Court.
Warrenton, Va., July 8. Quite a sen?
sation was stirred up in town to day by
the fact that our commonwealth's attor?
ney, James B. Jeffries, was fined by
Judge E. M. Spilinan $.10 for;contempt of
court. The circumstances which led up
to to day's result occurred on Saturday
last in an action of detinue involving the
title to a colt. Mr James P. Jeffries was
plaintiff and Mr. Joseph Jeffries, a prom?
inent druggist of the town, defendant." I
A verdict WPS given for the plaintiff,
which was set aside. Whereupon Mr. R.
R. Campbell, counsel for the plaintiff,
made In open court a number of charges
! against Judge Spilman. As soon as the
i remarkable paper was read Mr. Brooke
I and Hon. Eppa Hunton, Jr., representing
the defendant, arose nnd characterized
the motion as the most outrageous pro?
ceeding ever known at this bar
Judge Spilman has presided for years
at this bar, and enjoyed the reputation or
one of our most respected citizens. He
took no action in the matter until to-day,
when he had ample time for considera?
tion. Mr. James Jeffries offered an apol?
ogy this afternoon, through his counsel,
Mr. Campbell, saying that be did not
know that the charges were true. Judge
Spilman declined to accept it.

runs may read, notwithstanding the
secrecy which attends the preparations of
the Japanese government for a descent
upon the Hawaiian Islands.
"That is their aim, and unless their
claims are fully me' and promises of fu?
ture good behavior are made regarding
the Sandwich Islands wo will soon heat
that.the Hag of J apan bas replaced that of
the present shaky republic. That the
Japanese government has a first claim
against the Hawaiian republic is beyoud
question. That the Japanese will press
the claim there is not a doubt. Who will
take sides with Hawaii:- America:' What
will be the result?
"The Japanese population of the Sand?
wich Islands is about 20,000. Say 18,000 j
of them are men, and those men are prac- i
tical soidters who have been through

Havana, July IB?All the plans of Gen?

The Railroads Are Seizing Whole
Train-loads of Coal.
THE, STRIKE A GRAVE REALITY.
THE STORM CENTER LOCATED
- ?T THE VICINITY OF WHEEL?
ING?MINERS DRIVEN [FROM
WORK BY STRIKERS ARMED
WITH PICKS AND REVOLVERS.
BOTH SIDES SATISFIED.
Cleveland, July 8.?Tho railroads have
already begun to seize coal for their own
use, no matter to whom it is consigned.
Whole trains are sent to railioad yards
anil unloaded, regardless of who the coal
is destined for. The confiscation began
slightly at the first talk of the miners'
strike, and now is becoming general.
Nearly every manufacturing establish?
ment in this city has been the loser by
this nnd with some of theui the sltuatiou
is so serious that the closing of the works
will be necessary. Coal consigned to the
Otis Steel Company has been confiscated
and ns the company has n government
coutract, it threatens to take the matter
Into court. An etlort was made this
morning by railroad men to take three
cars of coal from tho side track of the
Kilby Manufacturing Company, which
also has a government contract, but Pres?
ident Kilby frrightened them away by
threats. Tho railroads take the coal by
virtue of the fact that they carry the
United States mails.
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com?
pany, acting under its local right, to-day
confiscated a number of cars of coal
which had been shlpned by Henry Floer
sheim to the United States eugiueei for I
Davis Island and Herr's Island dams.
The coal is badly needed by tho govern- ]
n cut and also by the railroad company.
The United States engineer offered to
compromise with the Baltimore and Ohio
if it won hi release half of tho coal. If
the oiler is not accented the question will
be BUumttted to the United States district
attorney to determine where the coal
'? Wheeling, W. Va., July 8.?The storm
center of the big coal strikeIbtds fair to
be located in the vicinity 06 Wheeling.
Already the operators in the Fairmont,
W. Va., region are preparing to send
great quantities of coal into Ohio and to
the J.ikes, and Wheeling is the gateway
through which all this coal will pass.
Three roads?the Baltimore and Ohio,
the Wheeling and Lnku Erie, and the
Clevelaud, Loralu and Wheeling-will
carry it through to its markets. Along
the lino of each road in Eastern Ohio are
located many coal mines, neur'y all of
which have closed down since the strike
was declared last week.
It was in this area that the turbulence
of three years ago occurred, when several
thousand men of the Ohio National
Guard were out. The fear is now becom?
ing general that the conl from the West
Virginia mines passing through will pro?
voke violence on the part of the idle
union miners and their friends In Eastern
This morning, armed with pick handles
and clubs, the Etriklug Wheeling and 1
Lake Erie miners at Long Run, over the
, river, proceeded to Dillouville,a short dls
| tance awny ou the same road, and forced
the working miners at the latter place to j
come out ou a strike.
At Wheeling Creek the miners decided
to;oin the strike this afternoon. Twenty
five United States deputy marshals left
Columbus to-night for this city. They
will protect the miners on the Wheeling
and Lake Erie road. These miners have
decided to return to work If they are
guaranteed protection. In the Massillion,
Ohio,district the operators have concluded
to stop work until the strike is settled.
They are willing to pay a 00 cent rate if
the Pittsburg district will pay (19 cents.
Tne Wheeling nnd Lake Erie railway
began *o day to haul West Virginia coal
into Ohio. Two train loads passed
through north, but no trouble was expe?
rienced. Tho miners are sullen, and It Is
believed by some that they may resort to
force to prevent tho moving of trains if
the railway persists hi hauling this coal.
Deputy marshals have been stationed
aloug tho Hue of the road to prevent in?
terference with trains and the possible de?
struction of bridges.
Pittsburg, Pa., July 13.?Forty eight
hours after t?.e inauguration of the great
coal miners' strike, a comparison of
statements from both sides .engaged in
tho contest, show favorable results for
the diggers. Discounting the miners'
officials announcements by the operators'
opinions, there seems no question that
the workmen have scored ii decided ad?
vantage in this district, and it is believed
that as the Pittsburg district goes, so
goes the countiy.
Conservative estimates place the num?
ber of miners now striking in this dis?
trict from 16.001) to 18,000 men,nn increase
of about 5,0(0 over yesterday's record.
This leaves but from 3,000 to 5,000 men
Tho officials of the miners and opera?
tors are both satisfied with the outlook.
President Dohm, of the former,says there
are not more than 51,001) miners at work
in tho Pittsburg district. The operators
have issued a statement, claiming a large
accession of men and a heavier -flipping |
Notwithstanding ihe advantages
claimed for the operators," the consensus
of opinion appears to be in favoi of the
miners, inasmuch as the operators can
only hope for temporary'rellef wiih their
present facilities, and the miner-* offi?
cials seem to be in a fair way to effect?
ually cripple even there by constantly ad
! ding to their number from-'the -.inks of
those remaining at work.

It appears that the sultan has con* ?

the alleged concert of Europe to the

council of ministers for an extraordinary
sitting to the Yildtz Kiosk, with the re?
sult that after a heated discussion a re?

hostilities If peace should not be con?
