FJORTN YAKIMA, July s.—This afternoon while Nort ern Pacific freight train No. 56 was stopping at Yakima Conductor Neelles ran into a saloon near the depot to get a time cheak cashed, and received for the same four S2O gold pieces. Two rough looking strangers were in the saloon at the lime, and after noting the transaction hur ried out. Mr. Needles paid no especial at tention to their movements, and would have thoght no mire about it.had lie not encountered the same two men on enter ing the caboose. When the train was fif teen miles east of tnis point a brakeman was with the conductor and he proceeded to ask for the tickets. He was met with the answer that they were old railroad men, and they went down into their inside coat pockets as if to produce credentials, but instead each drew a revolver and, covering bis man, de manded their money. Protestations were in vain, as the highwaymen knew they bad coin, and finally they yielded up their com bined rapital of $l2O. As the train slowed up at a crossing the robbers dropped off. Superintendent Prcfwell was notified by telegraph, and he came down from Ellens burg with a special engine and coach and picked up Sheriff Leah and a posse at Yak ima, who were soon scouring the country. Deputy Sheriff Dan Summons found the highwaymen, alter a brief search, in a squaw camp, where they were bargaining for ponies to take them out of the country. He covered them with his gun, and, assist ance being close at band, tbey were quickly secured. The captors earn a reward of $250, SSO. of which was offered by Con ductor Needles, SIOO by the company and $l(X) by Yakima county. The case is a clear one, and they are bound to go over the road, as the money was found in their possession. THE VICTORIA LIAR AGAIN. He Tells How Canadian Sealers Are Be ing Armed With Swivel Guns. VICTORIA, July 5.—A POST-INTELLIGENCER special from Port Townsend a few days ago stated that a special messenger had ar rived from Washington City with instruc tions for commanders of United States cut ters to proceed to Behring sea and seize all vessels found with any evidence of having been engaged in seal fishing. Today the story leaked out that two clipper schoon ers are being secretly fitted out m Maple bay, specially to meet tbe Yankees. It is said that the vessels each carry a heavy ;-wivel, besides two smaller guns, and dis guised as sealers, will tempt seiaare; so as to bring on an encounter. Captain Scott, a veteran sealer, says the skippers of two vessels in which he was in terested had armed their crews. ORGANIZED HORSETHIETES. I.arge Gang Infests Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. SPOKANE FAT/LS, July s.—Horsethieres have made a grand roundup in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho during the past few days. The method of their operations indicates that they have a regularly organized band with a leader. A few days ago they took 500' head of horse* toward the British Columbia line through the Flathead Indian country. A Walla Walla farmer reports a loss of fifty head. They were traced to within a few miles of Spo kane Falls. William Davis, of Cheney, lost a stallion for which he recently paid SI.L'OO. A large number of ranchers organized for pursuit of the thieves, but with little hope of success, as they have a good start. GALLAGHER WILL HAVE TO GO Governor Kerry Kefu«f>* to Save the Clnrke County Murderer. PORTLAND, Jaly s.—Edward I). Galla gher. who is to be executed at Vancouver next Friday for the murder of Louis Marr ia*t November, is believed to be insane by the people of that city, and efforts are being made to save him. Governor Ferry ha* been asked to grant a twenty days' re i.rieve for the purpose of getting expert testimony as to his sanity, but the gov ernor says he will not interfere. At the time of the murder Gallagher was accompanied by a man who was impli cated in the crime. The accomplice has never been found and Gallagher studiously refuses to give his name. He says the man was a stranger to him. WILL EVICT EVERY FAMILY. Cruel Threat of Dummnlr, the Coal Kitig of Naitaimo. S\N FRANCISCO, July s.—The steamer Umatilla, which left today for Victoria, had on board R. Dunsmuir, the coal im porter, who is gojng up to Vancouver inland in an attempt to settle the strike among his miners. lie has 600 men em ployed, and he says that if they do not re turn to work, at the former hours and pay, he will evict every one of them from their houses. which all belong to him. and that he will the i get new men.

Wool Growers Declare That it Would Destroy Their Industry. ST. LOUIS, July s.—The officers of tbe Wool Growers' National Association have issued another address to the wool growers, setting forth the dangers of the proposed Senate amendments to the McKinley bill as far as wool is concerned. The address says: Sc ator Hale's amendment, if adopted, will admit wool free of duty from all the nations of this hemisphere. Cleveland's free wool recom mendation was no more dangerous. Foreign wocl would supplant domestic wool and your industry would perish. The republican plat form would be violated, the principles of pro tection surrendered and the production of the wool necessary for clothing in the United States transferred to foreign nations. The address further protests against the proposed Senate amendments to strike out the clause prohibiting sorting of wools, and to strike out the words "including charges," thus raising tbedividing line, and continues: We have yielded all that can be safely yielded in justice to our industry to secure general pro tective legislation. Any of the amendments re ferred to are dangerous. Hale's amendment would work absolute rain. Either on* of these amenlments will perpetuate fraudu'etit prac tices in the importation of carpet wool, etc. We call for your immediate action as individuals and as associations. Give notice to those repre senting you in the halis of legislation that you expect the Republican party to redeem their pledges and fulfill their promises by speedily passing the McKiuley bill. POWELL MUST COME DOWN. New State Senators Will Not Permit Withdrawal Irrigable Lands. WASHINGTON CITY, July s.—The new state congressmen believe that the pressure brought to bear by Powell's friends, who fear the terrible scoring he will get in the senate, will induce him to materialiy mod ify his withdrawal map and to •present one withdrawing only such lands as are really irrigable, bbould the matter ever be brought before the Senate there are eight senators who are ready to puncture the matter with facts as they know them to exist. Senators Allen and Squire, of Washington, will show that their state has been badly treated. Sanders will be aided by Power in showing that Powell knows nothing about Montana, while Senator Casey is loaded as regards North Dakota, and so far as the irrigation of that state is concerned can teach Powell all there is to know in the matter. Moody is ready to do battle for South Dakota, while there are half a dozen senators from the older states who seri ously object to having the lands in their states withdrawn from homestead settle ment. Powell must come down. Murdered and Thrown in the Lake. SARATOGA, N. Y., July s.— Frederick Sheppard, of New York, was found dead in Lound lake yesterday. The body was naked, and it was at first supposed be was drowned while swimming. An autopsy showed none of the ordinary evi dences of drowning, but wounds sulhcient to cause were found upon the body, and it was discovered that his clothing was rifled of a valuable watch and a sum of money. The indications are that he was murdereu on the t>hore of the lake and the body stripped and thrown into the water to give tbe appearance of accidental death. Much excitement prevails. Destructive Uainfall in West Virginia. PARKERSEPEG, W. Va., July s.— The fourth destructive storm of the week passed over this locality yesterday, flooding cel lars, damaging streets and sweeping away crops.

Rising in Any of the Ottoman Prov inces Will Bring a Big War. Germany Abandons Prince Ferdinand— Explorer Wissmann An Oplnm Fiend —French Prohibitory Tariff on Amer ican Farm Products. BERLIN, July s.— [Associated Press, copyrighted, 1890.] —There are growing signs of an impending storm in the Balkans. The situation is so grave that the holiday vacations of leading officials of the foreign office have been stopped. A momentous change appears to have oc curred in Germany's policy in the Balkans. Instead of pursuing the semi-neutral diplo macy of Prince Bismarck, the emperor has directed Herr Radowitz to take the initia tive in advising the Porte to meet the con tending claims of Bulgaria and Russia. Instructed through Chancellor Caprivi, ltadowitz has promised the Porte an early solution of the Bulgarian trouble, in har mony with the Berlin treaty, and also that an endeavor will be made to meet the Rus sian war indemnity. The emperor's scheme of settlement, ac cording to the accepted report in diplo matic circles, involves displacing Prince Ferdinand and the substitution of Prince Karl, of Sweden, as ruler of Bulgaria in his stead, also arrangement of the Russian in demnity by capitaiation of the amouryt through the international council of ad ministration which now controls Turkish loans. The schsme seems to have re ceived impetus from Emperor William's conference with Prince Oscar at Cbristiania. Though the financial proposals have not been formally communicated to Russia, De Giers, Russian prime minister, has re ceived an intimation of their nature, with the expression that they were not satis factory to Russia, he stating that Russia did not want to be concerned in rearrang ing the Turkish debt, and preferred to hold the Porte directly to its engagements. His response means that Russia will not let go her grip on Turxey's neck, given by the war debt. A general explosion in the Balkans may occur before the powers have time to con sider Emperor William's proposals. Greece and Servia have added to the general im broglio by each presenting notes to the Porte to the effect that any concessions to Bulgaria would require similar concessions to the Greek and Servian nationalities. The Servian note also declares that the ab sence of law and order in Macedonia ex poses Servians to continuous outrage, and demands an instant remedy. A rising in Bulgaria is likely at any moment to give the signal for a general conflagration. General Nicolaieff, Major Panitza's brother-in-law, is among the most popular officers in the Bulgarian army, and is in Macedonia watching a chance to start a revolution. The renouncing of Prince Bismarck's visit to England is due to the altered as pect of foreign affairs. He will go to his estate at Schoenhansen and thence to Gas tein, where Count Kalnoky, the Austro- Hungarian prime minister, will also re cruit bis health. After his recovery, the Hamburger Nachrichitn, says, Bismarck will enter the reichstaj. If he is driven to op pose the government, be would prefer to represent a National Liberal constituency, be now being more in sympathy with that party than with the Conservatives. Despite opposition in the English parlia ment, the Anglo-German agreement rela tive to African territory is considered abso lutely safe. The German ambassador at London has the assurance of Lord Salis bury that the government is causing its supporters to know that it will stand or fall by the compact, and has secured a normal majority. French reports of a secret clause in the treaty committing En gland to naval intervention in the North sea and Baltic in favor of Germany in the event of war are incorrect, although an entente exists amounting to a concentrated policy against France and Russia. The Iteich's Anzeiger announces removal of the prohibition against the importation of Danish pork and bac m sides. The re moval of these restrictions will afford grounds for renewal of Minister Phelps' communications concerning American trade. It is reported that the inability of Major Wissmann to return to Africa is due to tbe morphine habit, wbich he contracted dur ing his long service in the Dark Continent, lie suffered from insomnia to such an ex tent that he was obliged to resort to nar cotics. Two thousand persons attended a fete in the winter gardens of the Central hotel tonight in honor of the visiting American riflemen. FRENCH PROHIBITIVE DUTIES. American Corn and Wheat to Be Ex cluded, as Well as Pork. Paris. July s.— The Senate has shown its hand plainly in regard to American Ques tions. After a long debate it voted 3 francs duty on corn and 6 francs on corn meal. It was distinctly avowed that the duty on corn was to be considered only a continuation of the policy toward Ameri can pork. Decariel declared that the importation of American pork was only another mode of importing American corn, and the French farmers could not maintain themselves against it. The prohibition of pork was right and ought to be maintained, and the duty on corn should alio be made prohibi tive. Millard called attention to the fact that American pork is prohibited on the ground of alleged r.nhealthfuiness. He declared that this was merely a pretext. An article published in the Temps, and thought to reflect the views of the govern ment, suggests that there might be circum stances under which it may be desirable to withdraw the prohibition against pork. Gladstone Too Slronj for the Tories. Londojc, July s.— Tne house of commons committee yesterday negatived Gladstone's amendment against suspension of bills from one session to another. The vote stood 11 to 9. It is reported in Conserva tive circles that owing to the narrowness of the government majority the proposal to carry over the bills will be abandoned. London Telegrapher* Threaten to Strike. Losdos, July s.— The agitation among telegraph operators ior higher wages is as suming serious proportions and causing great delay in the service. It is rumored that the British government will apply to the American Telegraph Company for a SIXTEEN-PAGE EDITION. large force of operators in case the dissatis fied men go out on a strike. Employes are indignant over this proposed action and will request American craftsmen not to help the government grind them down to starvation wages. Several employes were discharged today for participating in indig nation meetings. A wholesale fctrike is ex pected on Monday. Paris Nihilist* Convicted. PARIS. July s.— The trial of the Nihilists has resulted in the conviction of Heinstein, Xahachidze. Kanchintzefr, Laveniun. Levaff and Orwowski, each of whom ha« been sentenced to three years' imprison ment and fined 300 francs. The wife of Reinstein and a female physician named Tromborg, were acquitted.

New England Desperadoes Terrorise a Prohlbislon BABGOB, Me., July s.—The ordinarily peaceful town of Orono, eight miles above this city, continued yesterday's celebration today by having a regular Western fight and throwing the whole town into an up roar. A riot occurred at the Maine Central depot which the company had been trying to free from the presence of a set of tough loafers, who are accustomed to make the place their rendevous. Today six or seven roughs, more or less influenced by liquor, entered the station and breaking in the door of the ticket office, grappled with Sta tion Agent O'Neil, who was sitting at his desk. By a sudden and furious onslaugh they took ' him | from his feet and commenced kicking him, dragging him toward the door. He retrained his tooting, caught up a short piece of gas pipe lying in the waiting-room, and went et his assail antg. He laid two of them out before help came in the person of ftaggagemaster Buzzell, who rushed into the waiting-room with a revolver in one hand and a heavy club in the other. Just as he arrived three or four more roughs came in by another door. The two railroad men went at the crowd and a wicked fight ensued. The superior number of the roughs told, however, at once. Buz zell then opened fire with the revolver, but aimed high, hoping the smell of powder would disperse them. At his first shot, however, three or four revolvers were drawn on the other side and Buzzell re ceived probably fatal wounds. At the height of the fight a train rolled into the station and the men on board joined hands against the desperadoes. There was a fu sil ade of pistol shots. Several were wounded, but the roughs were finally ar rested. PRIZEFIGHT AT I'OBT TOWXSEND. Tom Clear? Defeats Dick Robinson in Seyen Rounds. PORT TOWNSEND, July s.—Tom Cleary, of this city, and Dick Robinson fought seven rounds at a suburban resort last night. It was a private mill, the spectators being charged $3. It was Intended that Cleary and Paddy Smith, of Seattle, should fight to a finish. The latter, however, did not see enough money in the contemplated battle, and at the last moment refused to step in to the ring. Robinson was repeatedly knocked down and badly punished. He claimed he was not in condition, and has challenged Clearv to fight to a finish. JOE M'AULIFFE AND SLAVIST. Lord Lonsdale's Sfrvicei Bring About tbe Match.
