Three hun dred miners at the Coal Hill and Den ning coal mines of the Western Coal aod Mining company struck against a ten per cent per ton reduction. The strike may bo settled in a few days and may result in the closing of the mines for an indefinite period. KILLED BY INDIANS. rwo TThlta Hen and Fir Indiana Dead In the Cheyenne Country. Et Reno. L T., April 3. Information was brought to this city last evening af a desperate Sght between Indians and white settlers in the Cheyenne 30untry west of here, in which two white men and five Indians were killed. The trouble prigin sted over white men grazing cattle on Indian lands contrary to the wishes of the red men. From time to time since the Cheyenne and Araphoe country was thrown open to settlement nearly two years ago, dissentions have arisen from this cause, but never before have the re sults been fatal. ' Word was soon' brought to the agency at Darlington and to Fort Reno and the troops were immediate ly placed under marching orders. QUIET REIGNS. Worst Is Believed to Be Over In South Carolina Troops Dismissed. Coixmbia, S. C, April 3. There is no war-like aspect about the capital and everything is peace. The guards at the executive mansion have been withdrawn, all the local militia are giving up their guns and Gov ernor Tillman himself says: "The worst is over and order now reigns." The telegraph censorship has not been discontinued, but the governor himself passes upon all telegrams, rejecting some and changing others. The sensation of. the day here was the refusal of the Newberry Rifles to re main stationed at the telegraph office to supervise the telegrams, and their notice to the governor of their resignation. CUTTING MINERS' WAGES. Twenty Per Cent Redaction in Mines In Indian Territory. Lehigh, L T., April 3. The twenty per cent reduction in wages of the coal miners In the Indian Territory went into effect yesterday, . and although no strike has - yet been ordered, none of the miners of this place and Coalgate went to work. At a mass meeting of the coal miners.it was decided to suspend work for ten days.' During that time they expect to obtain the sentiment of the different mining camps in the territory, and if a strike is ordered it will be general over the territory with the exception, probably, of Hartshorn, the miners there having accepted the reduction and continued to work. STILL NO QUORUM. An Endless Attempt to Break the Fili buster Against the O'Neill-Joy Case. Washington, April 3. For five hours yesterday roll call followed roll call in an endless attempt to bring the Republican filibuster against the O'Neill-Joy contested election case to a close, but .at no time were the Dem ocrats able to muster a quorum and the fight was finally abandoned for the day. Yesterday 170. was the high water mark touched by the Democrats on any roll calL This is nine short of a quorum. About ten Democrats are voting on every roll call against O'Neill and ti-ree from his own state. McEane'i Last Resort. Washington, April 3. The clerk of the United States circuit court, at New York, has forwarded to the su preme court the papers in the case of the appeal of John Y. McKane, of New York, from tha decision of Judge Lacombe, denying him a writ of ha beas corpus. McKane is now in Sing Sing for a violation of the election laws. It is said by an official of the court there is hardly any probability the case will be heard this term. Bnrned to a Crisp. Wichita, Kan.-, April 3. Mrs. Lucy Drake was burned fatally last night in a curious way. Early in the even ing she had been cleaning a dress with gasoline and later put it on and went- out. On her return she was ! lighting a lamp when the flames from the match communicated with her clothes, and before help could reach her she was burned to a crisp. NEWS NOTES. The steamboat Sunbeam was burned at New Orleans. It is probable that the Breckinridge Pollard trial will continue for two weeks. Reports from Western Kansas say the wheat crop there is badly in need of rain. Rev. James Asbell of Lexington, Ky., has fled from that place as a re sult of a story told by a little girl, who charges that he attempted impro- prieties with her. A 'student at Blount County, Ala., college shot himself fatally while holding his pistol in his mouth and showing some ladies how far he could pull the trigger back. Governor Jones of Alabama will not reply to Capta n IColb's letter, but has expressed himself in an interview. Their friends profess to fear serious consequences. "The most important business of my life is love" is the inscription on the grave of one of Colonel Breckinridge's deal wives, both of whom repose in a cemetery at Lex.ngton, Ky. It is possible that the next governor of New York will be a native Mis sourian. Congressman John C. Hen drix, now of Brooklyn, is the man likely to fall heir to the gubernatorial mantle. John C Anderson, formerly of Kan sas, has brought suit against the par ents of his octoroon wife, lately de ceased, at Norwich, Conn., to recover his child, whom the parents claim the right to retain. In a new book that tells of the colors of the soul in various stages of evolu tion, the important information is given that blue indicates the highest attainments in perfection. Iron works at Troy, N. Y-, have made for a Havana sugar mill an iron valve Weighing 6,500 pounds. The firm claim it to be the largest valve ever constructed. . LOST HISTEMPER. The Smiling Colonel Becomes Confused by Questions, And Forgets Entirely His Usual ..Sweet Suavity. 1IIS MEANNESS TOLD. He Makes No Excuse for His Conduct. Washington, April 3. Great ex pectations have been focused upon the cross examination of Colonel W. P. C Breckinridge by ex-Congressman Jere M. Wilson, particularly herein Wash ington, where the abilities, of both men are appreciated. The expecta tions began to be realized after the noon recess yesterday, when the colonel was delivered over into the hands of his opponents. The firs't time the defendant has shown marked embarrassment during the trial, was when an envelope was handed him with the request that he read the direction and the contents, which he did reluctantly, because it was an invitation sent to Miss Pollard in February, 1893,reqnesting the honor of her presence at a reception to be given in honor of Hon. W. P. C. Breck inridge, at the Norwood institute, and the Norwood institute is the most ex clusive and fashionable seminary for young ladies in Washington, patron ized by the first families of Virginia and the South. An embarrassing presumption which Judge Wilson clung to through out was that the same standard of morality 6hould be demanded from men as from women. Finally at the close of the day. having secured the statement that he had written no let ters to Madeline Pollard in 1886, Mr. Wilson sprung something very much like st' trap by dropping into a line of questioning which indicates that he has in reserve testimony to show that the member from Kentucky dictated underground letters through a type writist at the capitoL Then for the first time the defendant seemed to lose his temper, and made most stren uous,denials. The typewriter, whose testimony is next in order, is a Miss Louise Lowell, now a clerk in the treasury department. JTTDGE WILSON OPENS SHARPLY. "Take the witness," said Mr. But terworth at the beginning of the afternoon session, and Mr. Wilson re minding Colonel Breckinridge of his early educational advantages, asked him what preparatory schools he had attended and then drew from him that he had had unusual educational and social advantages. "Were your friends not obliged to raise money to help you out of trouble?" was asked. , "I became greatly involved in try ing to save some friends from bank ruptcy, but did not have trouble with clients." "Your friends were not obliged to return money you had appropriated?" "They were not." In relating his connection with edu cational institutions Colonel Breckin ridge said that he had been a lecturer for several years, had been nominally a trustree of Sayre institute, the fe male seminary attended by the plaint iff. The examination continued as follows: Your father was a minister of the gospel and president of a college of what denomination? The Presbyterian. Are you a member of that church? I am in the sense that I am borne on its rolls. I became a member in 1859 and have never withdrawn. You have taken an interest in the church? In the sense of contributing so far as my means would allow and giving legal advice when it was wanted. I have- no recollection of ever address ing a Presbytery or synod. I was never an officer of the church. In 1S-S8, at the centennial meeting in Philadelphia, I addressed the meeting on Calvinism and religious freedom. Have you taken an active interest in Sunday school-work? I have never been a teacher since I left the Confederate army. It de pends on what you mean by an active interest. Have you-lectured before young la dies seminaries? Oh, I have addressed Schools, lec tured and delivered diplomas at times. LONG A GOSS HOUSE VISITOR. Thereupon Mr. Wilson handed up to the colonel and requested him to read an invitation sent to Miss Pollard in February, 1S93, requesting the pleas ure of her company at a "reception to the Hon." W. C. P. Breckinridge at the i Norwood institute." By questions concerning the col onel's residence in Lexington in 1884 Mr. Wilson elicited the information that his home was on the same street with the house of Sarah Goss, four blocks away. Then the examination went on. How long had you known Sarah Goss? Oh, I can't tell perhaps twenty years. Did you ever know the character of her house? I did. . Had you ever been there before you went with the plaintiff? I was. Then I understand that before you met the plaintiff you had for years known Sarah Goss; known the charac ter of the house, known the location of the house and had been there be fore you went there with the plain tiff? - Each of these statements is true. By further questioning Mr, Wilson elicited the information that the colonel last June had delivered a speech to a woman's society in Nash ville and had been presented with a basket of flowers. He denied that he had said he had no wife to present the in his response' and was anxious to explain what he had said, but Mr. "V ilson would not permit. "Are you a member of the Ma3onie fraternity? I am." - ' ' 'Yon knew Miss Pollard's father was a Mason? "I did not. I knew that he was an Odd Fellow." Are there any obligations to the widow or daughters of members grow ing - out of membership in those orders?" Phil Thompson objected to this question and was sustained. After Colonel Breckinridge had ad mitted he was in good health on the night of his first ride with Miss Pol lard, and had no throat trouble or chills, as Mr. Wilson asked, he was asked-whether it was not a rather unusual proceeding to select a closed carriage for a drive on a hot summer evening, to which the colonel replied, "O, no, I don't think it was," and the audience laughed. Of the conversation on the ride he could only remember that Miss Pol lard did most of the talking. "Did you give her any friendly ad rice on that occasion?" "I did not. "You were a man of 47 and she a girl of 17 to 21?" "That was all true, and much more. No man in America had less excuse for such action than I, with the do mestic surroundings I then had. I have attempted to make no excuse for it; it just happened so." "And the fact that she was a young girl in school made it all the worse?" "You can not frame words too strong to characterize it. I have not at tempted to justify it or even 'defend it, and all the hell I have suffered since then, I have deserved." Describing the interview on the train, the colonel said: "I suggested to her that if she stayed over in Lex ington would not she meet me, and asked if there was any place she could go. She said she could go to Sarah Goss', and with some surprise I asked What do you know about Sarah Goss?' She said Mr. Rhodes had once tried to get her to go there with him, and she had gone as far as the gate, but refused to go in." "You knew places in Lexington where people could eo?" "Lexington was a place of 20,000 inhabitants. Tlrere were such places. But I would not put such a girl as I supposed the plaintiff to be in the power of such a woman as I supposed Sarah Goss to be. Miss Pollard had known the way to the house," the colonel continued,and then in response to questions as to his going home to dinner and returning to the house, he responded continuously: "1 did, Idid," with bowed head. "Did ybu have a sister in Lexington by the name of Louise?" asked Mr. Wilson after Mr. Breckinridge had de clared he had not corresponded with Miss Pollard in 1886. "I never had a sister by tne name of Louise," was the reply. "Do you know a woman in Washing ton by the name of Louise Lowell?" PUZZLING THE DEFENDANT. Colonel Breckinridge looked puzzled and declared he knew no such person. Then to Mr. Wilson's inquiry whether he remembered a typevvritist whose machine was in the corridor of the Capitol between the rooms of the house committee on postoffices and the committee on printing, he said there had always been a typewritist and stenographer there, but he could not remember her name. "If she was produced I might recognize her." "You have said you wrots no letters to her in 188ti?" continued llr. Wilson. "Now did you not take to that lady In February of 1836 a manuscript let ter beginning, 'My Dear Sister Lou ise,' and ask her to render it into typewriting?" "I decline to answer that unless you show me the paper you are asking the questions from. I have given you notice to produce all the letters you have from me and you have said you had none." The. colonel was for the first time getting somewhat ex cited. It will be remembered he had denied the statement of Miss Pollard that he had addressed letters to her under the name of Louise Wilson. His attorneys. Major Butterworth and Colonel Phil Thompson, backed him up in his refusal, but Judge Bradley decided the question was a fair one. "Since 1 have no recollection of a woman named Louise Lowell, I can not remerober having sent any letter to her," was the reply. "Let me . see the letter," persisted Colonel Breckinridge. "That will come out in due time," remarked Mr. Wilson, coolly. "Now," to refresh your memory, did you not in that communication refer to the disparity of ages between yourself and your dear sister Louise?" . More protests that the letter should be produced, to which Mr. Wilson said: "For the comfort of yourself and your attorneys, I will say that the manuscript was returned to you." "Well, now you need not make such statement, for I don't care anything about it either way," interposed Colo nel Breckinridge, visibly nettled. "And to further refresh your mem ory," continued Mr. Wilson, "did you not say how anxious you were to get back and meet your dear sister once more?" "I have not the faintest recollection of any such letter and I don't care to discuss it," replied the defendant. "If you wish to bring the Lowell wo man here, if there is such a person, and let me see whether I have ever known her, or her testimony is a fab rication like that of Sarah Goss, I can tell you." "That will be something for the jury to pass upon," remarked Judge Wiison, and then asked him if he had not, after two or three months of this correspondence, cautioned his dear sister Louise not to leave the letters around, as Curious persons might searc i bureau drawers." "I never under any circumstances wrote any such letter," replied the colonel, and then he tapped the wit ness box sharply as he asserted: "If any such letter is in existence it is a lorgery, and if notes of any such they are a forgery," "I will ask you whether you did not bring to her in the spring of 1886 a package- of a dozen envelopes, some what yellowed by age and of differ ent dates, and have her address them to Miss Madeline Pollard, 7 Upper street, Lexington, Ky." Colonel Breckinridge was very strenuous in his denial. "I never, under any circumstances, had any such envelopes addressed, and I do not care who the woman is who says so,"' he asserted positively.

A Sacra mento street cable car with, a dozen passengers on board dashed down one of the 8 eepest grades in the city last even ing and telescoped another car standing on a crossing. No one was killed, but all the passeugera were more or less in jured. The list of injured is as follows: Luke Morgan, letter carrier, feet mashed and body bruised. . Detective JRobert Hog-un, tendons of right leg strained and body bruised. Miss Plunkett, slightly injured about face and arms, v Gripman -O'Brien, badly cut above knee. C. A. Dewing, cat about bead and face and badly bruised. A fire was in progress on Dupont ptreet and a cable car was blocked by fire hose at the corner of Dupont and Sacramento streets. Another car coming down the hill behind the first car broke away from the gripman and . dashed down at lightning speed. The two cars collided with terrific force, both being badly wrecked. The passengers were thrown in all directions and that no one was killed is considered marvelous. FREE SEED PIS TRIBUTION. Over 9,000,009 Ba; of Seed Were Sent Oat Last Tear. Washington, April 8. The annual dis tribution of seeds by the agricultural de partment has been practically completed though the quotas of several congress men still remain subject to their order. The work was commenced last autumn and about nine million small paper bags of seed have been distributed during the season. Two-thirds of these formed the quota of congress, the remainder being sent out at the discretion of the department. The amount distributed is 30 per cent greater than lst year and each congressman re- r ceived 3,000 more bags of seed than m any previous year. An average of 100 two bushel bags was sent-out daily. The appropriation for the present fiscal year was $ 185,400. How's This! We offer One Hundred Dollars Re ward for any case of atarrh that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. F.
