A Lofty Peak of the Cas cades on Fire. Mount Tacoma Sends Forth Smoke and Lava. Excitement Throughout All the Puget Sound Country. Thousands of People on the Streets of Seattle Ninety Miles Distant Witness the Wonderful Phenomena. By the Associated PreBS. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 21 Great ex citement has been caused throughout the Puget Sound country by what is looked upon by many as an eruption of Mount Tacoma or Rainier, 14,444 feet high, and one of the loftiest peaks in the United States. The mountain has certainly been strangely transformed. The crest of the great monarch of the Cascades has changed, the cone having fallen in and steam can be seen rising from the cra ter. There is no eruption, it is believed by those most competent to judge, but great masses of rock seem to have fallen. The snow capped cone has dis appeared and a sharp pointed peak has risen in its place to the east of the crater. The changed appearance of the moun Famous for everything. our fine line of All Wool Suite In all colors 5 Worth $18. CLOTHING STORE. Employment Offlce.STi tain is evident from the streets of Seattle, ninety miles distant, and thousands of people have watched the great peak all afternoon. But few peo ple have ever ascended the mountain and at this season of the year ascension is an absolute impossibility. So there is no way of making a thorough in vestigation of the phenomenon.

A Bpeciul to the Republic from Fairbury, Illinois, says: Hog cholera has cleaned out quite a number of hog raisers around Fairbury. Those whose porkers were marketable, sold them, and now, as a last resort, to save their hogs, those whose pigs were too small for the markets will try inoc ulation to prevent the disease from spreading. It is entirely a new scheme here, but it is hoped it will do the work as every few years the scourge visits this section and nearly cleans out all the hogs. THE CAPTAINNOT' TO BLAME.

A Strong Field to Overcome, but If He Goes in the Other Fellows Will Not Be In It. By tbe Associated Press, TorEKA, Has., Nov. 21. The politi cians who have been giving attention to the senatorial matter daring the week are uncertain whether ex-Senator In galls is likely to be a factor in tbe con test or not. He has made no positive expression on tbe subject yet, but there is a general belief that he will enter the race. It is known that he has had a desire to win his old seat, now held by Senator Peffer, and which will not be vacant until 1897. He has been waiting for and fondly anticipating another test of political strength with Mr. Peffer. In the language of the muscular Mr. Cor bett, Senator Ingalls has been training for the purpose of "taking Senator Peffer on" at the close of the latter's Beason in January, 1897. This is the match he is most anxious to make. But two years is a very 'long time to wait, especially in view of the fact that the Republican party of Kan sas was never in such good condition for a senatorial combat as it will be in the legislature of 1395.: The big Repub lican majority is a great temptation to Senator Ingalls to sail in and either demonstrate how fields are won or show Peffer what he may expect two years hence. It is claimed by the friends of Ingalls that his chances will be better for the Martin succession than for his former seat and that he will be likely to respond promptly to the call of "next," rather than to wait for his man. There is a strong field against Mr. Ingalls, but it is contended that he would start in with a good vote with a reasonable probability that he would gain on each ballot, and that, the en thusiasm once started, it would be Bure to carry him through to the coveted goal. This is tbe assumption on which his friends are working and on which it is believed his candidacy will soon be favorably announced. CANNERY BURNED. Fire Breaks Out in a San Jose Establishment. All of the Buildings of the Plant De stroyed at an Estimated Loss of $80,000. By the Associated Press. San Jose, Cal., Nov. 21.

There was none in Phoenix more loved than she and none deserved better to be loved. She was a dutiful daughter, a kind sister and an affectionate friend. She was, too, a young lady of noble pur poses and a high order of intellect and an industrious student. No death has recently occurred in this city which is more generally mourned. She waB the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Curns. She was about eighteen years of age and of the high school class of '95. Ten days ago she was stricken with brain fever. Tbe worBt was feared from the beginning, but later hope was felt that she would recover. On Tuesday evening the dis ease took an unfavorable turn and death came yesterday afternoon. The funeral will take place under the direction of Randal & Davis from the The Annual Meeting Adjourned to Next Wednesday Night. List night was the date of the meet ing for the annual election of a board of directors for the chamber of com merce. There was a fair attendance but a larger one was desired in view of all that hinges so much upon the work of the chamber. There never has been a time since the institution of that body when it has had so much to do or such an opportunity to do it. It was therefore decided to give a fuller opportunity for expression and the meeting was adjourned to next Wednesday night at the city hall. A general invitation is extended to every body who is interested in the growth of Pbcenix at a time when the city and valley teems strictly indigenous to the richest soil on earth.

His Daughter Says He Told Her That If She Heard of His Death to Not Believe It. By the Associated Press. Philadelphia, Nov. 21, The Pitzel mystery deepenB as time wears on. To day many theories in regard to the mystery were knocked in the head by the announcement that B. F. Pitzel, tbe supposed murdered man, was seen in Chicago less than two weeks ago. President Fouz of the Fidelity Life Insurance company, said today : "Thig morning my Chicago representative telegraphed me that Mr. Bryan r who is a business man in Chicago, called on him and said that B. F. Pitzel was in that city less than two weeks ago. Mr. Bryan says he has known Pitzel for many years and had frequent business transactions with him and it is impos sible for him to be mistaken. When they met Bryan did not know Pitzel was supposed to be dead, and the two greeted each other cordially and re paired to a near by 6a!oon where they had a drink together. There they sep arated and Bryan eays he does not know whether Pitzel was to remain in the city or not. However,, our men there and Pickertrn detectives have taken up the clue and it is u:y opinion that Pitzel will be produced within.. few days." : President Fouz called on Mrs. Pitzel and her daughter at tbe central station today and received valuable informa tion from the daughter in reference to her father.
