Hidden far under a huge pile of rocks and sage brush, smoothed into as close as possi ble a Resemblance to undisturbed na ture, and within a few feet of what has been positively identified as Wai ter Scott's home, sixty-five miles south of the Funeral Range, there have been unearthed three of the ponderous mon ey chests of the Wells-Fargo compa ny, broken open and rifled of all con tents. Now excitement runs high in the Bullfrog district. John P. Poe, a famous football play er of the Princeton team, made the discovery, and upon his return to Rhy olite confided it to John T. Overbury, a prominent and well known mining man. Poe, while prospecting on the desert, met Zeifie, who is one of the first dis coverers of Walter Scott's hidden home. Zeifie and Poe went In search of the mine. They reached Scott's cabin, and began prospecting. Through out the immediate neighborhood were pieces of broken boxes, and at the bot tom of a pile of sagebrush and indis criminate rubbish were three great boxes. One, which appeared to have been recently opened, lay uncovered in the sun. The boxes gave evidence of having come from the Santa Fe rail road, and were evidently too large to have been used on a stage route. Broken bits of the boxes were found collected in a pile and buried. Over bury stated that Poo seemed to be a man of his word, and added that his story was accepted as bonafide in Bullfrog. Poe left Zeifie in the can yon near the scene of the find and re turned for supplies to Rhyolite. He will rejoin his companion at once. o CHARGES DISHONESTY Ruffle Session of Mail Carriers-Balk on Federation Portland, Ore., Sept. 9. Charges of dishonesty against the association pre cipitated a fight in the convention of the National Letter Carrier's associa tion today. Delegate John Hermer waddle states he resigned from the executive committtee for this reason and made charges that papers of au incriminating nature had been stolen from his grip between Vancouver, B. C. and Portland, while he was en route to this city- to attend the convention. President Keller replied that the ch mad asainst Secretary Cant .. ... ... . wen, ot tne association, were uniouna- ed and disgraceful and that his admin istration had been honest President Keller tated that because of the charges he would withdraw his name as a candidate for the presidency. The debate was participated in by delegates in all parts of the hall, there being several on the floor during the entire discussion, seeking to be recog nized. Matters had hardly quieted down when another uproar was creat ed by the question as to what the ex ecutive board meant by not reporting the fact that Hemerwaddle had resign ed, and the accusation was made that the board was attempting to conceal something. The discussion was brok en by the adjournment for luncheon. The convention by practically a unamimous vote refused to consider affiliation with the American Federa tion of America. Mrs. B. J. O'Reilly came to the city last evening from Naco. CONNELL SVUIE Frightful Powder Mills Disaster-Seven Succes sive Explosions Wrecked Mills and Did Extreme Damage in Neighborhood Connelleville.

Then the packing house, pressing room and magazine blew up, followed by two cars of dynamite, standing on a nearby track, which were set otf by the concussion from the powdtr mill explosions. Many of the survivors had thrilling experience. Orrville S-afaney was working in the glazing room, and had gone out for a drink of water. He was just outside when the mixing mill went up. The explosion thrsw him high in the air, but he landed on his feet in a network of fallen wires. Dodging them, he sped arounc the hill, and was fifty feet away when the sec ond explosion threw him on his face. He lay there stunned and knew noth ing of the terrific blast that came ihen the storage magazine went up. Half an hour after the explosion he was picked up and carried to a place of safety. . All day at short intervals Searchers would bring in bits of bodies or cloth ing. Some of these finds were carried in cishpans or damaged powder cans with which Ihe ground is strewn for acres. The majority of the dead men were single, although several of them leave families. A passenger train on the Baltimore and Ohio, northbound from Morgan town to Connellsville, was passing the scene at the time the explosion oc curred. The train was jarred tremen dously and every window broken and many passengers were cut by the showers of glass. The concussion was like an earth quake to the country around about and caused great excitement. Manager Rand was seriously hurt. At coon twelve bodies had been taken from the ruins. For miles I blown over and scores of people in the place have painful injuries. i FIGHTING IN MANCHURIA Forces-Reported Outrages Situation Improving fantry, -a ho outrage and rob the peo ple.

Today and this ev ening were almost without incideci Crowds collected at various points, and made slight demonstrations against the police stations, but there was neither fighting nor serious dis order. There have been no furthei demonstrations against churches or missions. Tokio, Sept. 8. (Delayed in trans mission). At an informal meeting to day between Premier Count Katzura and the members of both houses of the diet, representing their respective parties and associations, Count Kat zura made a full statement regarding the peace negotiations. Baron Yammamoto, minister of the navy, said that a heavier sacrifice would have been necessary to take Vladivostok than that involved in the capture of Port Arthur, besides the heavy monetary outlay. It was ad visable to be satisfied with the pres ent terms. M. Oishi, the leader of the progress ive party, suggested that the cabinet should resign after concluding peace upon such unsatisfactory terms. Singapore, Sept. 9. In the Straits Settlement the German protected cruiser Smeadler, which left here yes terday for German East Africa, in viev; of the rebellion there, struck a submarine mine at Kent Rocks, twelve miles from thi3 city, and re mains stranded there in bad position.

Equipped with three guns and a store of ammu nition, with small arms and millions of cartridges. 10,000 hungry working- men control Baku today and have dis persed the soldiery sent against them, from whom they tool: the cannon. When the Tartars' finished with the town they had taken everything worth stealing and then set it on fire. The machinery of C00O oil wells has been destroyed, the burning oil is flowing in. the ..streets and is being used to throw upon the soldiers, who cannot face the mobs, 'who demand that the soldiers leave the place. In capturing the cannon the mob rushed out of falling buildings, into which the shells had just been fired, killing scores of their companions, and demand for revenge for this slaughter is a howl such as was never heard on the worst wolf-ridden Siberian steppe. Every man in Baku capable of bearing arms is well provided and shoots at a uniform on sight. It may be said that Baku is lost to the present force of soldiers, and when recaptured will not be worth the powder burned in the endeavor. It is stark revolution, the mob having tasted blood and gone wild for an orgy. LIVE STOCK MARKET Week Showed Falling Off in Prices on Most Deliveries (Special to Review.) " Kansas City, Mo., Sept 9. Ail kinds of cattle except comfed stuff and veal calves are lower this week. The supply for three days amounts to C8, 000 head, and the demand is not quite up to this large total. The packers have taken care of their kinds better than the feeder buyers previous to to day, but the yards are full of countrv buyers today, and stockers and feeders are steady at the previous decline this week, 15 to 25 cents below a week ago. Killing cattle are selling steady today also, at 5 to 15 cents below last week. Range catte, of course, make up the bulk of the receipts this week, and a very large share of them ire stockers and feeders. Colorado feed ers, 950 to 1100 pounds, sold at $3.35 to $3.50; New Mexico yearlings at $3.30, and the bulk of the light weight steers and thin heavy steers at $3.25 to $3.b0, while the fleshy stuff, good enough for the packers, sold at $3.45 to $3.30; a few medium to common stockers at $2.75 to $3.25.

In a fight that will long stand in a class ot its own in the history of ring contests. Battling Nelson knocked, out James Britt this afternoon. The end came in the eighteenth, round and was a fairly won victory. The story of the battle furnishes i thrilling narrative. No element that goes to give a fight the superlative ti tle of "greatest" was missing. The surroundings, the crowd, the known bitterness of the men towari each other, the uncertainty as ta whether there would be a fight at all up to within a quarter of an hour befcre It actually begun, the clever ness, gameness and endurance display ed by the two boxers, these are what made the fight a great one. It was the story of many another ring contest, the success of the strong, sturdy, enduring fighter against a clev er, cool boxer. This in brief is a de fccription of Nelson and Britt's ring; characteristics. From the first noraent of the fight until Referee Graney finished the count of ten. Nelson forced tho fightiag Though battered by innumerable bruis ing blows upon face and body, and at times very tired, Nelson never for one moment gave ground. He came back, after every vicious attack by the clev er Britt, always ready to exchange Mows. For these" rushing, forcing, persist ent attacks of Nelson Britt couid find no effective counter. In every way he failed. It is true that Britt pun ished Nelson severely, knocking hint down once and staggering him several times, but never was he able to beat him back and change the aspect of the fight. Only once, in the third round, di4 it appear to those close enough io judge the end of the battle, thai Britt might win. In this round he reached the most vulnerable spot on Nelson's muscle-armed body, his stomach, with two terrific right hand blows that car ried punishing force behind them. Nel son faltered for a moment and doub led over. Quickly turning his atten tion to Nelson's face, Britt sent in a. terrific right cross that dropped the Dane to his knees. ' There was a great shout from Britt's; friends, but tho elation was short lived. Nelson got up before the timer could reach tho count of two, anJ fought in tho way he knows how ta fight, always coming toward his man. The tireless persistency, the most discouraging thing to the opposing; fighter, and his marvelous disregard ot physical punishment, won the fight for Nelson. Britt, had he never achieved victory, must forever be remembered as ons (Continued on Page 3. ) up to take caro of extra heavy re ceipts. The mutton market has eased off a little this week, except for country grades, which continue to sell at what looks iike exorbitant prices. Utali lambs made $7.50 Monday, the highest since last winter, but are probably 35 cents lower today.
