Attorney- Oeneral Harmon has received the fol lowing letter from tho secretary of state in relation to filibustering expedi. tions to aid Cuba: "It is a matter of current rnmor and newspaper report that at various points in tho United States attempts are milk ing by enlistment of men, equipment and arming of vessels, and by other il legal measures, to aid the insurrection now in progress in the island of Cuba, While this department has not been furnished with tangible evidence con firmatory of such rumors and reports, it deems it of great importance that no possible opportunity shall be given for oomplaiut that the government of the United States has in any respect fallen short of its full duty to a friendly na turn. It is respectfully suggested, therefore, that the United States at torneys and marshals for tho several districts embracing the coast line be. tweuu New York and Brownsville have their attention called to this question. and be especially enjoined to see to it that the neutrality laws of the United States are faithfully observed, and all violations theroof promptly and vigor ously prosecuted. " Complying with Mr. Olney's sugges tion, Attorney-Ooneral Harmon has di rected all United States attorneys and marshals of the Atlantio coast line dis tricts to act in conjunction, and to take all steps neoessary and proper to pre. vent any violations of the neutrality laws, acting promptly and vigorously. WEEKLY SALMON REPORT. Flailing on Lower Columbia Continued Good Laat Week. Astoria, Or., June 17. The Astor- iau'a weekly salmon report says in part: Fishing on the Lower Columbia has continued good during the past week. Up to Wednesday returns at all the canneries wore good, fish aver aging fifteen to the boat with an aver age weight of twenty-nine pounds. Since then, however, they have contin ued to fall off, and the day's returns since were the dullest for several weeks. Traps are " not running at all well. Seining continues to improve, and will no doubt show good results from now nutil the end of the season. The ohinooks are all of a splendid color, with flesh plump and firm. The mid dle river canneries are averaging 1 80 oases of fish per day. At the cascades and dalles work still oontinues very slack, and nearly all that is being done is being accomplished by seines. Blue- backs are gradually beginning to ap pear in the river, but cannot attain anything like the ordinary proportions before the close of the season.

Pro PROPOSED LAW TO GOVERN LIBEL Before Suit Dhall fie Brought a Pub lienor Shall Be Oranted Time to I'ubll.h Hetraotlon. Philadelphia, June 14. The couven tion of the International League of Press Clubs today adopted a resolution offered by Charles Emery Smith, of the Philadelphia Press, urging the various pess clubs of the league to work euer gotically to secure from the legislature of the several states the passage of laws to protect newspaper men in preserv ing inviolate confidential information oommunicatod to them in the ordinary course of thoir duties. Speaking as a newspaper proprietor. Mr. Smith said that if he bad correctly observed the young men about him, there was not one worthy member in the nowspapcr profession who would not rather rot in jail than betray his confidence. John H. Low, of Philadelphia, offer ed a resolution relative to libel laws, introducing it in a long preamble call. ing attention to the services performed by the newspapers of the nation as the chief weapons of defense against official corruption and vice, and reciting that it has become their duty and right to expose public scandal, raaladministra. tion of offices and violations of law, so long as they do not in printing or vio lation abuse the liberty granted them. In conclusion, the resolution calls upon the president of the league to petition legislatures to pass a general libel law worded as follows: "Before and suit shall be brought for the publication of a libel in any newspaper in this state, the aggrieved party shall, at least three days before filing or giving the complaint in such suit, serve a notice on the publisher or publishers of said newspaper at their principal office of publication, specify ing the statements in said article which he or they may allege to bo false or de f amatory. If it shall appear on the trial of said action that the article was published in good faith; that its falsity was due to a mistake or misapprehen sion of the facts, and that a full and fair retraction of any statement therein alleged to be erroneous was published in the next regular issue of such news paper, or in case of daily papers, within three days after such mistake or misap prehension was brought to the knowl edge of such publisher or publishers in as conspicuous a plaoe and type in sucn newspaper as was the article com plained of as libelous; then the plaintiff in such oases shall recover any actual damages. Provided, however, that the provisions of this act shall not apply to tho case of any libel against any candi date for a public office in this state, unless the retraction of the charge is made editorially in a conspicuous man ner, at least three days before election, if such libelous article was published in a daily newspaper; if published in a weekly paper, at least ten days before election." The resolution was adopted. Tho oonvontion thia morning selected Buffalo as the place for holding the next convention. The date will be fixed by the executive committee. The following officers were chosen to serve during the coming year: President, Louis H. Megargee, Phila delphia; first vice-president, Joseph Howard, jr., New York; treasurer, James S. MoCarty, Philadelphia; sec retary, Harry D. Vought, Buffalo. DANGER OF A CONFLICT. Serioua Trouble Expected With .the Coeur d'Aleue Minora Boise, June 14. An alarming state of affairs exists in the Coeur d'Alene oountry. News received hero today indicates that serious trouble is likely to break out there at any time between the miners' union and the law and or der men in that section, who have or ganized to protect laborers in their ight to work if thoy can secure em ployment, and the mineowners in the right to employ whom they please. A man who incurred the enmity of the union was killed there recently, mur dered with an ax, which was found buried in his skull, and the coroner's jury returned a verdict of suicide. Governor MoConnell has made a requi sition on the government for arms, and has obtained several hundred stands. Over 800 volunteers are drilling here tonight to prepare for the ooming con flict whieh seems imminent. Idaho has no militia. , Tho Durrant Trial. Santa Rosa, Cal., June 14. It is re ported here today that the famous Durrant murder case may be tried in the superior court here. It is rumored that a change of venue from the San Franoisoo superior oourt will be asked for on the ground that the publicity given the oase there makes it almost impossible to secure an impartial jury. If the oase is tried here it will not be the first time that important oases have been transferred from San Fracisoo to Sonoma oounty. The famous Colton railway oase, the most voluminous in the history of the state, was tried here, as was also the famous Morrow bribery oase. The Newfoundland l.oan. St Johns, N. F., June 14. The government will introduce a loan bill tomorrow, whioh proves that a loan had been obtained, although many per sons believe that they will have to pass the loan, retrenchment and revenue bills before the money is handed over. Rumors of dissensions in the govern ment party over retrenchment are still aurrent, and a revolt ia still expected. DATE OF THE BIQ FIGHT. It Hae Been Fixed for Thursday, the Laat Hay of October. Chicago, June 16. Daniel S. Stew art reached Chicago last evening from New York, whither he had been to ar range for the championship battle be tween Corbett and Fitszimmons. "The Florida Athletic Club accepted my proposition to move their concern to Dallas," Stewart said. "I produced a copy of the statutes showing that there is no law in the state against pu gilistio contests, and told them if the club were transferred to Dallas I must be elected president and treasurer of the club. Dwyer, Vendig and Friend thought this over and the result was I was elected president and treasurer of the Florida club, and the club is trans. forred to Dallas. I am now on my way to Dallas to begin the construction of the amphitheater in which the fight will take place. It will be a mam. moth structure, built in octagonal shape. There will be four entrances from the cardinal points of the build ing. The seating capacity will be 40, 000. There will be 260 boxes, with ton chairs in each. The prices for boxes has not been settled, but the ad mission will be 10, with reserved seats $20. Dnring the week in which thhe fight takes plaoe there will be a fair in Dallas, and to this there will be excursion rates from all the sur rounding country. I have secured a cheap rate from two Eastern lines, which I believe has never before been secured for a similar event. "Corbett and Fitzsimmons will meet on Thursday, October 81. There will be one other contest, probably be tween Dixon and Plimmer. There will be no carnival of four fights. The proposed mill between the little men will take place probably the second day proceeding the Corbett Fitzsimmons battle." From what Stewart says there will be no middle, light or welter-weight fight about which so much has been said, since it has been settled that the great fight will take plaoe at Dallas. Ho does not intend that the multitudi nous light, welter and middle-weights should get in nnder cover of the big show, and there will be but two Dix on and Plimmer, and Corbett and Fitz simmons and Stewart holds that these are enough and worth the jonrney to LIKE RATS IN A. BARREL. The Condition of the Steerage Faaeengere of the Collma. San Francisco, June 16. Robert Gonzales, a mess boy of the lost Coli ma, who arrived here last night on the Colon, in company with Fred Johnson, sailor, gives a vivid description of the fight for life made by the helpless women and children when the ship went down. "When the boat began to rock and roll, the passengers in the steerage did not seem to think much was the mat ter. The rolling of the ship became more violent, and after a while the boatswain came to the oompanionway and told us to get out Even then the passengers did notseem to understand that anything was serious and went out slowly. I saw two or three of them go to the oompanionway and come back, but I did not know why, at that time. As the boat continued to roll, and the water began pouring in, I ran to the ladder leading to the deck and started to get up, After I had reached the middle of the ladder, I saw why the others had come back. They oould not get out The lumber and other stuff on the deck had shifted to such an ex tent that the oompanionway hatch was covered up. xney were use rats in a barrel. They oould not get out, and had to wait there until the water came in on them. . Being familiar with the ship I ran through the kitchen and crawled np the dummy-waiter to the pantry above. From there I made my way into the main cabin, which then contained two or three feet of water. I passed through the cabin and saw women trying to get upstairs through the hatches, but the water kept some of them from leaving their staterooms, and others were unable to get up the stairs on account of the stuff that cov ered the openings on deck. "We tried to save the .two women in the boat with us, but when she cap sized we had to scramble for ourselves. The last I saw of them they were cling ing to an empty bucket, which held them np only a second and they went down without a cry or struggle." Racing Dead In Illinola. Chicago, June 15. With the ad journment of the legislature without having called np the Humphrey racing bill passed away the last chance of horseraoing in Illinois with a betting ataohment during the ooming two years. All the big' stakes at Harlem will be declared off at onoe, including the $20,000 derby, the $10,000 Garden City handicap and other stakes. All the big stables will ba shipped East at onoe, as they regard Illinois racing as dead., . Acroea the Atlantle in a 81oop. New York, June 15. Robert Mo- Callum, the daring young Scotchman, who will make the attempt to cross the Atlantio in a 23-foot sloop, has begun his perilous jonrney. His only com panion is his blaok Scotch terrier "Jack." The start was made at 11:26 A. M. If the lad oompletes the jour ney, which he expects to do, in forty five days, he will receive $5,000 and a gold medal. Newfoundland's Loan Bill Faaaed. St Johns, Newfoundland, June 15. The loan will passed the lower house today. . It provides for the floating of 2,500,000 pounds with 4 per oent in tret in 40-year bonds. PATHOL OF THE COAST The Government to Thwari Cuban Filibusters. GUARDING THE FLORIDA S1I0RK Secretary Olney Will Ileal With the Itevolutlonieta and Their Sympa thizer. With a Strong Hand. Washington, June 13. The determi nation to send the United States steam ship Raleigh to the Florida coast for the purpose of co-operating with reve nue cutters to prevent filibustering ex peditions starting from our shores, is one of the first acts of Mr. Olney in his new position. Secretary Herbert has deemed such a course advisable for some days past, and conferred with the president on the subject He and Sec retary Olney then had a further confer ence, and as a result the formal orders to the Raleigh were issued. Written instruction carefully statins tne line ol policy which the adminis tration desires to pursue in regard to tne interference with filibusters will be sent to Captain Miller, commanding the Raleigh, and it is probable he will be called to Washington for a confer enoe with Acting Secretary MoAdoo before his vessel leaves New York. These instructions are not available. but it is known he will be directed to use the utmost care in preventing any vessel from leaving our coast destined for Cuba with the object of rendering aid to the revolutionists. The mere shipment of arms is not regarded as a violation of the neutrality laws, and before any vessel is overhauled by the Raleigh the officers mnst be thoroughly convinced the suspected craft is fitted out as a fighting machine to operate against Spain. It is the desire of the authorities that pro steps shall be displayed not only by the Raleigh, but by revenue outters, to prevent illegal expeditions from leaving our shores, and treasury officials are seriously con sidering the advisability of further augmenting the force of revenue cut ters in southern waters. The following letter from the treas utry department was sent today to all collectors of customs from New York to the Rio Grande: "It is a matter of rumor that at var ious points in the United States, at tempts are making to enlist men to equip and arm vessels and by other il legal measures to aid the insurrection now in progress in the island of Cuba. While this department has been fur nished with tangible evidence, con firmatory of such rumors, it deems it of great importance that no possibility be given for complaints that the gov ernment of the United States has in any respect fallen short of its full duty to a friendly nation. Collectors of customs for the several districts be tween New York and Brownsville are especially enjoined to see to it that the neutrality laws of the United States, particularly sections 6289 and 5290, of the revised statutes, are fully complied with. Acting Secretary MoAdoo, of the navy department, said this afternoon that the instructions sent to the com modore of the cruiser Raleigh for his guidance when on patrol duty off the Florida coast, were of tiie most com prehensive kind and provided for a full and strict enforcement of the neu trality laws. The Raleigh probably will go first to Key West This is the only port on tho Florida ooast which a vessel of her draught can safely enter. She then will make a thorough patrol ol tne coast line, and to render it more difficult for a filibustering party to get away, the cruiser's steam launches and small boats will be man ned whenever it is necessary to look into narrow inlets anil passes for light draft schooners and yachts, which are the favorite means of transportation of the filibusters. With Spanish men-of-war lying off the Florida ooast out side of the three-mile limit, and the Raleigh and her boats sweeping the in side waters, the over-enthusiastic Cu bans and their American sympathizers who undertake to drive the United States into trouble by using Florida as a base of hostile operations against the government of Cuba are likely to be repressed with a strong hand. The Coeur d'Alene Situation. Spokane, June 15. There is no change in the labor situation in the Coeur d'Alenes. The Bunker Hill and the Sullivan people are preparing to resume work on a basis of $3 a day for miners, $3.50 for carmen and shovel ers, the requisite number of citizens having signed a petition pledging their support' What the result of the re sumption will be a matter of conjec ture. The miners union says there will be no lawlessness, and that the company will not be able to secure men at out wages. Men well informed . re specting the situation, however, fear trouble and violence. Sloven for Conviction. Topeka, Kan., June 15. The jury in the Nevels case reported at noon to day that they oould not agree and were discharged. The jury stood 1 1 for conviction and 1 for acquittal. Frank Nevels, a oolored tenant, was accused of murdering his landlady, Mrs. A. D. Matson, a white widow. The juror for acquittal is a oolored man who is quot ed as saying that deep down in his heart he believes Nevels to be guilty, but the fact was not proven. Kotlfled of Caatle'a Appointment. Washington, June 13. ; Secretary Olney has received a brief telegram from Minister Willis, dated Honolulu, June 8, and San Franoisoo, June 10, saying that W. R. Castle has been ap pointed Hawaiian minister to the United States, in plaoa of Thurston. FOSTER'S WORK ENDED. tie Ileeeivea a Fat Fee From hlna for Hie Advice. Chicago, June 13. A speciul from Washington says: John Foster, for mer secretary of stute, who has been the counsel for China in the negotia tions with Japan, has cabled here that his work is completed; thut China has negotiated her loan, and that he ex pects to be in Washington by July 10. It is known that the negotiations of China from the outset to the end have been dictated and conducted by Foster. It has been ascertained also that by reason of his extended acquaintance in Russia, where he formerly was United States minister, he was enabled to se cure for China the indorsement of the Russian government of the Chineso -loan. With this indorsement it was possible for China to negotiute the loan in Paris, which was done. In the his tory of the world's diplomacy, it has probably never occurred that a foreign er has been given to such an extent the confidences of another government. It is ascertained that the Chinese govern ment acted in strict accordance with the advice of Mr. Foster in every re spect The fee is said to be $100,000. Nothing Unlawful About It. Washington, June 13. The atten tion of the postoffice department has been called to a novel industry that has proved profitable to the promoters. The business is conducted by a firm that sends circulars to the students of both sexes, stating that they will furn ish them with all kinds of literary pro ductions to be used in their course of studies, all the work being original, but customers ordering will have the exclusive use of the same. A printed list accompanies the circulars. Orig inal essays, debates, etc., are furnished by the firm ranging in price from 85 cents to 50 cents per 100 words, accord ing to the style, length and nature of the subject The department had its attention directed to the circulars, but has decided it had no power under the rules and regulations to bar out the circulars. Coeur d'Alene Boad. New York, June 13. Theoommittee representing the first mortgage bond holders of the Coeur d'Alene Railway & Navigation Company has sent a cir cular to the bondholders, stating that they expect to consummate an agree ment with the Northern Pacific re ceivers, by which the latter will guar antee on account of coupons, one-half of the amount payable in 1895, four sixths of the amount payable in 1 896, five-sixths of the amount payable in 1897, and the full amonnt payable in 1898 and subsequent years, that the coupons of 1894 and the unpaid part of the coupons of 1895-96-97 are to be re tained and paid, or payment provided by some future arrangements, and that a reorganization of the Northern Pa cifio and Coeur d'Alene is expected within a year, and on suoh reorganiza tion the unpaid interest and the bonds, they hope, will be satisfactory arrang ed for.
