The Cripple Creek Trouble is Beyond Arbitration, And the Grand Jury Will Take . a Hand. IF THE WORST COMES The Eailway Men Will Help the Miners Out. Coix)raio Sprikss, Col., June 1. The authorities have notified the mine owners who have property at Cripple Creek that -the trouble in that district has gone entirely beyond the question of wages or of arbitration of wages. It is now, they state, entirely one putting of down the lawless ness and insurrection existing In the district, and this they propose to make an effort to do. For this purpose a special session of the grand jury has been called and the Cripple Creek cases will at once be taken up. People who live and do business in Cripple Creek are coming to Colorado Springs in large numbers, as they staie . they no longer dare re main at their homes. The majority have been ordered to leave by the striking miners. They tell stories of outrageous treatment and of innumer able threats by the strikers. New complications are threatened, as for the past twenty-four hours rep resentatives of the railway conduc tors, engineers and firemen have been in consultation with the strikers at Altman. It is thought the trainmen may refuse to run trains carrying arms, ammunition and reinforcements to the deputies.. Such a step would immeasurably strengthen the strik ers, as the work of massing deputies would be slow and difficult. The miners have great faith in Gov ernor Waite being able to adjust the matters with the mine owners bo that work can start up on all idle proper ties by the first of the week at the latest. They are greatly put out that his excellency has been delayed in his journey to Colorado Springs by washouts. The governor and his par ty are weather bound near McCourt camp. The governor is greatly disap pointed, as he fears the deputies will make an advance. General Johnson, who commands the strikers' forces, served with Cap tain Zalinski in the United States army, and it is said his knowledge of the principles of the Zalinski dyna mite guns has enabled him to con struct a dangerous weapon, which will be used against the deputies. It can throw dynamite several hundred feet. Deputies Seat to 'the Camp. Denver, CoL, June 1. The sheriff sent 150 more deputies to Cripple Creek yesterday. They were all armed with Winchesters, carried blankets and were equipped for hard sarvice. Thev will stor at Colorado forinrs until the road into the camp has been j repaired. Chicago has offered l.OOO ; men at $2 a day, but the proposition j was declined by Sheriff Bowers of Colorado Springs. LKAVEXWORTH STIRRED DP. Another Mass Meeting Held to Drive Oat the Missouri Agitators. Leavkxwobth, Kan., June 1. The citizens of Leavenworth are at last aroused to action, and at a public meeting held yesterday afternoon re solved to protect every miner anxious to remain at work, and drive from the city all foreign emissaries or agents who attempt to interfere with them. This is the result of the action of the Missouri strikers, under the leadership of Editor McGregor of the Miner's Echo, who yesterday morning marched in a body, headed by the Lexington band, to the lines of the Xorth Leavenworth shaft property to prevent the men from going to work. While no threats were made, many of the miners feared injury and returned to their homes. To take the necessary steps for organization a meeting of all good citizens was called at the council chamber. It was very largely attend ed. Judge L. M. ' Hacker was the chairman and D. K. Anthony, jr., sec retary. A committee from the North shaft miners, representing 300 men, was present and asked the people to protect them, as they were anxious to work and had nothing in common with the outside strikers. By resolution it was agreed to give protection to every miner who desired to work. Speeches were made by a number of citizens and all were unan imous in expression of making use of any lawful measure to give security to every citizen in his desire to pursue a peaceable vocation. It was resolved that all citizens should go at an early hour in the morning to the coal shaft and prevent home miners from being intimidated. . Toward the close Of the meeting McGregor marched with his band and strikers to the city hall, and was soon on the floor to be heard. He was per fectly at home, even among strangers, and his threats of defiance soon con vinced the audience that he is here for unlawful purposes. His speech was cut short by objections from the audience. . It was the general ex pression that McGregor's arrest may follow when he returns here next Saturday, as he promised. STEIKCSS ON THE M ARCH. Two Hudrad Miner. From Ca Baden Tramp on to Hamilton., Kingston, Mo., June 1. A body of a little more than 300 striking coal miners from the Camden and Rich mond mines in Ray county arrived here yesterday, camped, cooked and ate their suppers at Log creek, just within the southern limits of the city. They are en route to the Tom Creek coal mines, near Hamilton, ten miles north from here, to try to get the miners at work there to quit work and ioin them in the strike. The purifying effects of Ayer'a Sarsa parilla are sure and speedy. Take it this mouth. EDITOlt BACKED DOWN. Owens, Br.elclnrtdft-e'a Opponent, the Horo of a Sensational , Proeoodlns;. Lexutgtox, Ky., June 1. A most sensational and exciting scene took place in the editorial room of Charles C. Moore, editor, of the Bine Grass Blade. There were present W. C Owens, candidate for congress against Breckinridge, CL C. Moore, General W. ti. Gentry and J. . Walter Leake, a friend of Mr. Owens, and a corres pondent of the Post. Owens said to Moore: "X have come to see you about the lying, scurrilous letter which I understood you have received from Jetta Station, post marked Georgetown, ia which my character is attacked in a most shame ful manner. You say you believe the tetter to be a forgery, and yet you will print it in the Blade. I have this say, we both have been men of peace, and I have tried to do right, but if you publish that letter we will be so no longer, and you must stand the consequences. "If published, it will reflect serious ly on ladies of Frankfojt, and will besides be sent to my mother and sisters. That I cannot and will not stand. What I have to say to you is that I ask no favor of you, do not want you to defend me, and will not have that letter published or scatter ed broadcast when I have already denounced everything in it, and any one who circulates it is a liar and a scoundrel." . Moore began to explain that he was. doing this to defend Owens, but Owens shut him off, saying that he did not want to be defended by Moore. Then Moore asked to be al lowed to read the letter, which he did. The letter was dated Jetts, Ky., May 27. Moore had headed it, "How Bill Owens is Everlastingly Ruined." The letter makes grave charges against Owens of immorality and gambling, and is signed by L- Crutch er. The postmark of the letter is Georgetown, and the postmaster of that place has just come in to say that the postmark stamp is a forgery. Moore then backed down and said if Owens wished it he would not pub lish the letter. To this Owens replied that he would say nothing but that the letter had better not be published. Moore then agreed not to print it. PACIFIC RAILWAY DEBT. Sense Committee Order a Bill Drafted rrovidlng- for Settlement. Washington, June 1.

The bill for an additional judge for the Northern district of Illinois passed, after which the bill to repeal the tax on state bank circulation was taken up, Mr. Black of Georgia re suming his speech in favor of repeal. Mr. Black was followed by Mr. Walker, Republican of Massachusetts, whose speech evoked rounds of Dem ocratic applause on account of the ad vanced position he took in favor of an extension and enlargement of the bank note system. The other speakers of the day were Messrs. McLaurin of South Carolina, and Wheeler of Ala bama, who favored the repeal of the state bank tax. The house at 5:05 adjourned. A DARING OUTRAGE.

Holmes, druggist, 731 Kansas ava OUESTIOfi CARLISLE. Investigation . Committee Has Him On the Stand. He Contradicts the Testimony of Correspondent Edwards. MILLS REFUSED IT, Mr. Carlisle's Letter of Intro duction Wasn't Received. TTABHrNGTOif, June 1. Senator Mo Pherson was before the senatorial committee to investigate the alleged interference of the sugar trust with congress and the executive depart ments. He reiterated the statement he recently made on the floor of the senate that when it became apparent that sugar was to be the subject of legislation he instructed his broker to cease all dealings in sugar stock in his name. The committee also examined Sena tors Harris and Mills and concluded the sitting for the day with the testi mony of Secretary Carlisle, who denied explicity all charges made in Mr. Edwards' letter, except one. This one was the assertion that while con ferring with the committee he, Car lisle, on one occasion, at the sugges tion of the members of the commit tee, and using their figures, put a sugar schedule- into shape, as he did other paragraphs in the bill. This, the secretary said, he had done. He declared he had not made such a visit as he was represented as making to the committee to demand the sugar interest be cared for in the tariff bill because of the Democratic party's ob ligation to the sugar trust. The examination of Senator Harris, and Mills completed the inqury among members of the finance committee and senators who assisted in the pre paration of the bill. Both senators denied any knowledge of the sugar trust in connection with legislation, and also denied that Mr. Carlisle had demanded protection for sugar. Senator Mills was asked if it was true, as had been reported, that Mr. Car lisle had given Mr. Havemeyer of the sugar trust a letter of introduction to himself. He said this was a fact, but he had declined to receive the letter. Vice President Stevenson has signed the. certification of Schriver and Edwards to the district attorney. This is the formal order made under the law of 1857, under which it is pur posed to try to punish Edwards and Schriver for withholding names of persons giving them information. UNCLE SAM'S FINANCES. The Gold Reserve Down to a Lit tie in Excess of 77, OOO.OOO. Washington, June 1. The cash bal ance in the treasury at the close of business yesterday was S119.062, 893, of which $70,280,015 was gold reserve.

The cash balance will also be reduced by inter est and other payments due to less than $117,000,000. This will be a re auction of the available cash balance during May of about 88.000,000. The excess of expenditures for the eleven months of the fiscal year will exceed the receipts and leave a de ficiency of something over $74,000,000. Treasury officials are beginning to ship small quantities of gold coin from outside subtreasuries to New York to recoup the gold balance there. COL. MOORE'S CASE, It Will be Difficult to Obtain a Majority Report for Hiin. Washtxotox, June 1. Colonel H. LI Moore of Lawrence, who is con testing Funston's seat in congress, is having no end of trouble. Several of the Democrats have kicked clear out of harness and his friends on the com mittee fear that it will be difficult to obtain a majority report. Paynter of Kentucky, has espoused Funston's side of the controversy, and several of the other Democrats are lukewarm in Moore's support. This is especially true of Democrats who have Populists to fear in their districts and look with disfavor on the fusion deal. Another effort will be Ynade to get a favorable report on Colonel Moore's case Tuesday. Before it can be done, however, it will be necessary to satis fy the opposition to Moore in the Dem ocratic ranks. Trial of the Warship Columbia. Washington, June 1.
