Murphy. Peter Chrisman. Fred Stud'baueh. Feter Cahbrwot-d, Arthur Parker and James McKtlvcl. Thr sentiment of the min owners as voiced by C. C. Hamlin, secretary of the as focitaion. Is that all ur.bn miners must to driven rut of the camp. His dt duration tht the time ha? come to purge the dis trict started the rioting at the mass meet ing in Victor. cnlle.i to discuss the dynamite outrage at Independence. "It's up to you to ilrive these scoundrels out." Hamlin had declared. whereupon Alf Miller, n union man who h id been sworn in & rfPTvitv sheriff, raised hid rifio and in quired: "Whom are you referring to?" Miller s rif.e wa3 seized and the shooting began. The first shot was fired by some cr.e In the crowd. This was followed imme diately bv two rit'.e. phots from miners ur.Ion headquarters. A man standing in the door of the union store, it Is said, also tired Into the crowd with a repeating shotgun: Sherllf Bell called on the local company of the State Guard. commanded by ('apt.

CITIZENS' ALLIANCE ACCUSED BY WILLIAMS DCNTEIt, Col.. June 7. The News to-day prinU the following Interview with Vice President William?, of the Western Federa tion of Miners, who Is acting in the ca pacity of president during Mr. Mover's im prisonment in the military bull pen at Tel luridc: 'The troubles at Cripple Creek-the rout and disturbances there are simply an at tempt to disrupt the union and brir.? the strike to a -dose. It is my candid opinion that the Citizens' Alliance, an organization that s and always has been bitterly hostile to the unions. Is at the bottom of this at tempt to break the strike by a display of violence. "The. opinion among the miners is that the Citizens' Alliance is afraid the commit tee that has Just returned from Cripple Creek may have produced good results by it visit. It is to break the strike and dis credit the unions that the disturbances of yesterday were started. "News dispatches contain references to the mass meeting that was In progress when the trouble originated. My own opin ion is that this meeting was called by Mr. Hamlin, of the Mine Owners' Association, ostensibly to give an opportunity Jor free and fair discussion of matters involved in the strike, but. as a matter of fact, the Fcabs employed in the mlno3 were to play the part of miners. Then when a union man attempted to speak he was to be shot down. As for the Citizens Alliance, its members are absolutely unfair and pay no attention to law and order. This was brought out in the Telluride strike when miners were, driven out and many forms of violence put into effect to defeat the strike. "This whole matter enme up in a manner that appears very peculiar. Just after the visit of our committee, when the strike was progressing satisfactorily, and during tho Governor's absence, the trouble springs up. There are few solditxs in the district. The Citizens' Alliance, absolutely unfair, will resort to anything. Such outrages do not occur during the presence of the military, who are responsible to some one besides themselves. "Our organization is founded on the prin ciples of truth and Justice and its members are as much interested as other persons in suppressing lawlessness.

Col., June 7 Two hemp ropes knotted with a r.oose for hanging were lvir an n t-ih!e in the room where trie. Cripple Creek District Mine Owners As sociation held a heated discussion to-day behind closed doors. The members were greatly incensed by the discovery of what they regarded as evidence of the existence of a plot In the Victor Miners Union for whop-eale assassinations of mine owners and miners. This evidence was a bundle of forty marked photographs found by Lieutenant Keegan in the union hall. On the back of some of the photographs was the name of James Cochran, secretary of the union. The photographs were groups of men employed in various mines. The most important one was a group of the night shift of the Vindicator. The photograph contains about twenty por traits, live of which were numbered from one to five. On the back were written the names of the person's numbers. Of the five names those of Charles McCormick and Mel Heck had been crossed out. These two men were killed in the Vindicator ex plosion last November. On other photos, similarly arranged, it is asserted, there are crossed out the names of some of the men who have disappeared and whose where abouts or departure are unknown. James Cochran was arrested and taken Into the min owners headquarters for hearing. "I do not know anything about these pictures." he said, "except that they were taken to show the scabs. The marks by the names of the men who have been killed are mysterious to me. I was not present when the pictures were taken and cannot tell you any more about it." News leaked out to-day that had Thomas Christiansen been captured last nisht three men would have b en lynched. The plot was arranged and a special train wits standing on the Florence & Cripple Creek trak to carry a body of men who were ready in Cripple Creek awaiting signal. Al fred Miller, former Marshal Mike O'Connell and Tom Christianson were regarded as ringleaders in the rioting of yesterday, and they were marked for lynching on that ac count. The failure to capture Christianson was the only reason the plan was not car ried out. The other two are still in custody and awaiting the decision of the Citizens Alliance as to their fate. GEN. BELL HAS MARTIAL LAW PROCLAMATION DENVER. Col., June 7.-AdJutant Gen eral Sherman M. Bell, accompanied by a detail of staff officers, Js on . his way to Cripple Creek, bearing acting Governor HaggotCs proclamation of martial law for that district. He has instructions to use his Judgment as to the need for issuing the proclamation, and if he decides that con ditions warrant it to place the' gold camp under thj reign of the military for the sc ond time since the strike of metalliferious miners began last August. General Dell traveled on a regular Colo rado & Southern train from Denver to Colorado Springs. At the latter place the adjutant general and his escort entered a special train and went on to Cripple Creek. "The framing of the proclamation was the. result of. an appeal from Sheriff Bell, of Teller county, for troops, declaring that a state of insurrection existed in the Crip ple Creek district. The appeal reads: 'You are hereby advised that there is in existence in Teller county a riot and that mobs of men are acting together with in tent to commit felonies, and that violence is bting offered and attempted and threat ened as well upon the persons of said coun ty as upon property and that organized mobs are by force and violence breaking the laws of the State of Colorado and are threatening to continue to break the laws of the State of Colorado, and the civil au thorities of said county are unable to sup press the said tumult and riots and are unable to disperse said mobs, and are un able to prevent the threatened violence to persons and to property. That numerous citizens os said county have requested me to demand such military protection as may be necessary to prevent violation of the law. "Therefore, I, as sheriff of Teller county, in view of the foregoing, hereby request that portion of the National Guard of Colo rado as may be eleemeel necessary to enforce the law, preserve peace and sup press the insurrection now existing and threatened, be Kent with all convenient speed for the said purpose to Teller county. "I hereby request that, inasmuch as a state of insurrection nnd rebellion against the local authorities of the State of Colo rado is in existence, that you, as chief ex ecutive of the State of Colorado and commander-in-chief of its military forces, pro claim the said county of Teller to be in a state of insurrection and rebellion.

MATERIALS ON GROUND EL PASO, Tex., June 7. The government is building a reservoir twenty-five miles long, eight miles wide and two hundred feet deep, at a cost of $:i,O,000, at the junc tion of Salt river and Tonto creek. This Is one of the results' of the reclama tion act passed by Congres;-, and is Illustra tive of what will be done under the super vision of the federal government in re claiming arid lands by the sale of public domains. In ten years the settlers who arc beneiited by this structure will own the dam that provides water for their own fields. Everything required in the construction of this reservoir is on the ground, placed there seemingly by nature to be used in putting life in the desert by man's inge nuity. Most of the material will be taken from the excavations necessary in making the basin. The dam will be a masonry construction 220 feet above the present level and 250 feet above the bedrock. The stone will come from the bluffs, which will be cut out to form a spillway, and the cement will be manufactured by a plant erected on tho ground. A cement factory has been pur chased, and the materials for the manufac ture of Portland cement will be taken out of mother earth almost at the door of the plant. This plant will cost about $100,0.), and will more than pay for itself when the diminished cost of the cement is taken into consideration. The site of the dam is a long distance from any factory, and, taking into consideration the prevalent high prices, the plant will be a money saver. Lime stone, clay and gypsum, necessary in the manufacture of cement, are easily obtaina ble on the creek. The limestone, which runs about 75 per cent, in tho manufacture, will be obtained when the soil is excavated to erect a factory. The clay, which runs 23 per cent., is found In a bed a mile down the basin, and the gympsum, at 2 per cent., is also found a short distance away. In connection with the basin the govern ment is constructing a canal twelve miles in length to take care of the regular low water Mow. The canal will dispense with any gate on the reservoir and will give the lands down the river as much water as they have previously obtained without measuring or trouble of any nature. By this means a 250-head power will be secured, which will me utilized in a large electric plant, and the water will do all of the work. The plant will run the cement factory, mills, engines used in quarrying, drills, etc. Its value in the course of erec tion of the dam will repay the expenditure necessary to place it in working order, but Its usefulness does not stop then, as it will be run after all work on the structure is completed to pump water from the bottom lands for irrigation purposes. Another smaller dam will be constructed eight miles down the river toward Phoenix, which will materially assist this work. This dam will be used for power. Clay for common brick is on hand and also for Are brick for lining the cement furnaces. The Sierra Ancha mountains have lare forests and the government has established sawmills on the reserve, which supply the necssary timbers as work pro gresses. A new wagon road has been built along the basin, as the old road will be covered by water and the road extended along the canyon eight miles toward Phoenix. The city of Phoenix has voted SWO In bonds and the adjoining towns in proportion to their size for building this wagon road to Phoenix, a distance of sixty miles. The settlers who will be lenefited by the dam have already organized a stock com pany to take over the project at the expira tion of the ten years whicli they consume in paying for it. FATHER OF ACTRESS NAN PATTERSON TELLS HER HE WILL STAND BY HER (CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) ground that for him to answer might tend to Incriminate or elegrade him or to con nect him with the case. REVOLVER MAY SOLVE THE MURDER MYSTERY NEW YORK, June 7.-Detectives at work on the shooting of Caezar Young are slow ly tracing the history of the revolver which caused the bookmaker's death. Around the ownership of the weapon may revolve a so lution of the whole affair. Young's friends all assert that he never carried a pistol and the Intimates of "Nan" Patterson. who was with "ioung In the cab, declare she had a horror of weapons. Some pro gress has be-n made in truclng the revol verenough to indicate that it may have been purchased In San Francisco It was manufactured in Springfield. Mass., bore the factory number 70x', was purchased by a firm here and sold by them in 1S0S or 1809. The firms records for thos years have been destroyed, but the dealers ex press tne Denei tnai tne revolver was among a lot shipped to San Francisco. If this should prove true, the owner of the fatal weapon may be identified, as four of the persons directly connected with the tragedy are well known in San Francisco. A strict search or pawr shops has railed to develop any information which would lead to the belief that the revolver was pur chased in this city, and the detectives are hopeful that . valuable clew may be ob tained in California. James Dooley, a deck hand. Is reported as having told a strange story regarding the sale of his revolver to a stranger in West Broadway, near the scene of the shooting, a short time before Young and Mrs. Patterson are known to have been through. He asserts the man treated him several times in a saloon and on learning he had a weapon, purchased it, saying he wanted to shoot a woman. Little credence is placed in the story.

GIRL 10SES HER VOICE SHOUTING COLLEGE YELL Will Never Jc Able to Speak A era in Above Whisper. a MACON, Ga., June 7. College boys and girls all over the country will read with peculiar interest of the effect the college yells has had upon the vocal chords of Miss Pearl Turner, of this city. She is one of the students of Wesleyan Female Col lege. The girls there have had a rivalry recently, to show to the public which of the five classes could make the greatest amount of noise- with the college yells. It has not been an uncommon occurrence for some of them to go home at night so hoarse that they could hardly speak above a whisper. But usually the hoarseness and sore throat passes after a few hours, and the yell is taken up with renewed zest. But Miss Turner has had a more serious trouble with her voice. She became very hoarse and did not rally. She went to a specialist, and he told her that one of the vocal chords was paralyzed and the other One appeared to be. He informed her that if it developed that both were paralyzed she would never again bo able to speak above a whisper.

They blew up part of the railway and the telegraph station on the night of June 3. The damage was soon repaired. Sam sonofl's Cossacks are harassing the Jap anese towards Port Arthur. Cossacks searching the hills occasionally catch de tached parties unawares. In the clothing of a Japanese nicer of the Fourteenth Regiment, who was. killed, important documents were found showing that the Japanese had lost heavily in the lighting on May 00. Many of the Japanese killed wear tattered Chinese clothes such as spies use. Samsonoff's fight with the Japanese on June 3 In the valley of Putsiantun took place in an immense amphitheater in the hills. SamsonolT threw forward skirmish ers to feel out the Japanese positions. The Cossacks and dragoons crept forward, ex amining the steep hillsides, deep ravines and dry-water courses likely to protect Japanese ambuscades, r inally the Jap anese tire on the crest of the hills located them, and the assailants swarmed up al most inaccessible cliffs. The Japanese first kept in the shelter of the rocks, but the Russian lire searched them out, and they flitted, shadowlike, across the rocks as the Cossacks continued to .advance, while the dragoons cleared the valleys leading from the amphitheater. The Japanese cavalry retreated, unwilling to risk a collision at close quarters. The Russian line encircled one great hill on which was the principal Japanese position, and like a living ribbon crept toward the summit. Colonel Sereda led the advance until he fed, wounded, half way up the cliffs. The command de volved upon Lieutenant Colonel Chicsville, who continued the forward movement, clearing the Japanese from the heights. In the meantime a Russian battery placed an accurate shrapnel tire among the hill tops, hastening ihe Japanese retreat. Two Japanese sharpshooters on the summit of a hill seriously annoyed the Russians at a critical period on the advance. An officer of rerileski s company scaled tho rocks in the face of almost certain death and killed both the Japanese, returning unharmed. Soon after the Russians had occupied the hilitop and an intrenched village they re ceived an order to retire. Just then the Japanese artillery reserve was brought Into action and showcrered the retiring Russians with shrapnel, but failed to get the exact range. Besides Colonel Sereda, seventeen Rus sians were wounded In the day's encounter. The Japanese losses, owing to the accuracy of the Russian artillery lire, seemed heavy. Cossack KillliiK Koreans.

MADRID, June 7. -Twenty persons were in a coal mine near Ovieda WE AND LEPER SPOUSE FIEE fRlTHEIll PR1S0H Aged and Stricken Los Angeles Contractor Fears County Pen. LOS ANGELES, June 7. The leprosy stricken old contractor, M. D. Ferris, and his aged wife, have run away together, escaping from the house where Ferris lay isolated. They were about to be separated forever, and the old couple could not en dure the thought. Ferris was to have said a last farewell to his little family before going to the" county hospital to be locked up in a leper' pen, from which only a lingering death could release him. The doctors gave his wife the choice of going with him to the leper pen and let ting the world close over her, too, or of remaining with her children and never see ing her husband again. The old contractor was brave in the decision that she should not go with him, but at the last the part ing was too bitter. They could not say good-bye. The health officers who went to the fam ily residence on East Second street yester day found only some workmen fumigating the place. They were informed that Ferris and his wife had gone. Nothing could be found out about the poor old man; he is still in the State somewhere dodging the officers that is, nominally. There is a shrewd suspicion that the ofheers won't try very hard to capture him. Indeed, the city health authorities have charged that county officials deliberately let lepers run away to "get rid" of them. Much bitterness is expressed at the city hall because l'erris has run at large and become a public peril. Until the very last he saw where his duty lay. He voluntarily isolated himself from the rest of his fam ily and seemed to te reconciled to his ter rible fate. lie is technically in the custody of the county now, and, if caught, will be con lined for l'fe at a place now problematical as to location. On Monday the supervisors will hear the protests against placing the proposed leper pen at the county farm. At the next Legislature the supervisors will try to have one of the uninhabited islands of the Santa Barbara channel set aside for a leper colony. It is hoped in the not far distant future to have all the lepers in the United States taken to Mo lakai. This is considered to be only a charity to the lepers themselves, as the condition of the few isolated cases in this State is awful loneliness. One woman has been for six or eight months entirely alone at the county hospital. She is young and healthy except for her lotting face. She will prob ably live fifteen or twenty years to watch death coming over her. NEW COUNTERFEIT $100 GOLD CERTIFICATE Chief Wilkie, of the Secret Service, Announces Discovery of a Dan gerous Bogus Bill. WASHINGTON, June 7.-Chief Wilkie, of the United States Secret Service, announces the discovery of a new counterfeit $100 gold certificate. The counterfeit is of depart ment series, act of July 12. 1SS2, check letter B, plate No. 5, J. W. Lyons, register, Ellis H. Roberts, treasurer, portrait of Benton. This counterfeit is a well-executed litho graph, printed on bond paper of good qualitj', bearing blue ink marks in imita tion of the silk liber of the prenuine paper. The most noticeable defect is the portrait of Hentern, where the absence of light and shade effect gives it a fiat, unnatural ap pearance. The back of the note is not so well executed as the face. The good general appearance or this counterfeit makes It dan gerous, but it should be readily detected on clese inspection, particularly if the por trait Is examined.
