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.

PORTLAND, Jaly s.—Edward I). Galla
gher. who is to be executed at Vancouver

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.

SENATE TARIFF BILL ATTACKED.
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.

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

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.

DRUNKEN RIOT IN MAINE.
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.
