Friday Nov. 20th, two masked men entered the Northern Pacific express, car on the Miaeoula A Cœur d' Alene j railroad, and at the point of their guns ' nude the express messenger open the , safe and give up all the money. It contained $2,000. The roltbery oc curred between Dorsey and Mullan, near the Montana and Idaho line. Another world's record was broken on the kite shaped track at Stockton, Cal, Nov. 2tst, wben the yearling filly Faust, by Silence, was driven by San der in 2:25}, breaking the world's rec ord of 2228). It was a wonderful per formance, as the Ally wus never paced before, having trotted last Tuesday in 120. She went to the quarter in 37}, the half In 1:13}, the three-quarters in 1#0} and the mile in 2:25}. The year ling trotting record, 2:26}, held by Bell Bird, was equalled by the little Sidney filly, Frou Frou. There la a total failure of the corn •nd bean crops near Durango, Mexico, owing to drought, that is causing in tense suffering among the poor. The price of corn has risen to an enormous figure. The laboring element of Du rango have neither work nor food. "Whole families, covered with a few tugs and half dead with hunger, drag themselves into the mountains, hoping to prolong their lives by feeding on tools, the fruit of the cactus. Only the severe lueusures of the soldiers beep the people in subjection. A dispatch has lieen received from Fekln which confirms fhe statement that well armed bands bave devastated a whole dlatrtct In the northern part of China, and they bave pillaged and burned the Belgian mission stations. In addition to the destruction of the fedasion stations at Tayouand Sanclii there were over 100 converted natives «Rumored by blood-thirsty bands. The station at Gehol waa sacked and burned, the priest In charge of the toiariou, n Belgian by birth, was killed by the mob, and several other Christ ians were also massacred. The natives bave heretofore been quiet, and there waa no sign lu the district that the re volt waa premeditated. The local au thorities hail therefore taken no steps to suppress an outbreak, and when the natives rose they mét with no material opposition, for the officials were practi cally helpless. It may here be stated that the local governor, in his report of the occurrence to the Pekin govern ment, does not place the blame upon fhe natives of the province, but at taches the responsibility for the crimes to bands of Mongolian robbers, who be *ald made a raid through the district. Whatever the truth may be, the gen eral government has taken steps to prevent any further outrages on for eigners or native Christians In the dis trict. Under orders from Pekin all troops available Immediately on receipt of inf-rmation regarding the trouble were dispatched to the scene of the disturbances. Among the curious things of this coast says the Port Townsend Leader, is a strange Indian graveyard near Sequlm bay, about a mile from Port Williams, where the remains of nearly 500 children oi the forest have been left to the men y of the worms and the buzzards. The great number of bleach ing bones scattered around over several acres indicate the presence >>f a slaugh ter pen were it not for the fact that they are bones of human beings. And human skulls In great numbers are strewn over the surface of the old bury ing-ground, presenting anything hut a pleasant spectacle. The graveyard 1 b on a sandsplt on the beach, and the waves have washed the shot es and swept the loose sand away, leaving the bones, skeletons aud bodies exposed to view. Some of the bodies were "burled in baskets, some in boxes and some were wrapped in blankets and laid to rest in the hollow of several old decay ing stumps. Others were buried be m-atli tlze massive roots of he tall ev ergreens that grow on the beach. A number of little houses about the size of chicken coops were erec.ed to mark the lust resting places of the chiefs and great men of the trilies. The Ioni tes of the chiefs were curfully tied in baskets with ropes and strands and p ced III these little houses or slinks and lelt to wither and decay. Among the curious skeletons found was one of a dwarf only thirty Inches long, with a skull eighteen inches through. There were other dwarfs among the dead, but none so short as this man with a head large enough for a giant. This old graveyard, which presented such a strange but horrible appearance, was fouud by K. H. Colvin, a local photographer, who hurried out there with bis cernera and photographed the ghastly scene. This graveyard doubt less has great historical interest, but none of the old settlers who have been questioned on the subject can give an account of it or bad ever beard M It before. Perhaps the waves that wash the beach there bave brought to light some historical relics of great import ance to those Interested in the customs and habits of some or the Indian tribes I of the Pacific coast. 1 L.
