A Eidlonloue Mistake In the Coal Bohed ule Which Will Make Trouble. Washington, Aug. 23 Another Wand' r bas been discovered in tbe new tariff bill, which is almost sure to ause serious trouble. In the free list of tbe MeKialev act appears these two paragraph: "No. O.lu Coal, anthra cite." "No, 637 Coal stores of Ameri can veseeli, but none shall be unload ed."

Philapelpuai, Aug. 23 A rumor was circulated last eveuing that Henry A. Gardner, tbe default ing cashier of tbe Altoona bank, who disappeared resently with over f 100, 000 of t'uo banks funds, was in this city. It was said that he bad been seen here and that tbe news of bis whereabouts was made known to tbo Altoona police through a telegram sent from this city by some unknown party, who was also kind enough to Volunteer tbe information that be was here awaiting the recovery of a Mrs. Gordon who whs in the hospital. Superintendent Linden was cnmmun icutcd with, but failed to locate Gard ner and could not discover any woman n m d Gordon in any of the hospitals. Tim superintendent scouts the idea that Gardner has been iu this city since his theft and believes with the United States authorities that the missing cashier is ou his way to either China or Japan. Tbe story is strengthened by the fact that a man answering Gard ner's description wag seen a few days ago iu Portland, Ore. BOLIVIA CANNIBALS. Father and Son Brutally Tortured to Death and Eaten by the Carangas Indians. Panama. Aug. 16. The Star and Herald prints the following details of tbe recent double murder by Indians in Bolivia: Tbe Indians of Carangas killed the magistrate of the court of Oruro, Sonor Arce, and his son, who was with him. Tbe unfortunate men seeing the menacing attitude of the Indians took refuge in a priest's house, which was surrounded bv tbe Indians, who threatened to set fire to it. Having held a council of martyrdom they re solved that tbe life of the son should be taken first, and in the presence of the father they clipped out bis tongue, extracted bis eyes and otherwise tor tured him until be was dead. As the blood fl wed from the body they caught it in horn cups and drank' it with avidity. They then put the father to death in a like horrible manner. A carnival of Cannibalism was then held over the bodies until tbe flesh was eaten to the bones. This account of such inhuman barbarities occurring within the region of civilization is almost inoreditable. This story also seems to explain the reason for a report that it was ex-President Arce, who is at present in Chili, who bad been assassinated, but as has been made known already it wus a namesake of bis that was the victim of these Indians, and the unfortunate magistrate was the man. Advices from Chili to the Star and Herald says: "The steamer Longavi, belonging to the Compania Sud-Auisr-icana, while bound from Carahue to the north ran on a rock during a dnse fog and is a total wreck. Many lives were lost, but the exact number is un known," THE LUTHERAN SYNOD. A National Gathering of the Scciety Delegates.

Notices were posted in the mills early this morning, which established beyond question that tbe war between labor and capital her is to be a long and bitter one. Tonight every mill operated by the men who are members of the Manufactnrr' association will shut down indefinitely. These mills include every establish ment engaged in the manufacture of print cloth, and the shut down throws 23.C15 men and women out of em Inv mnt. There are at present about 2.500 wbo have voluntarily quit work, which swells tbe total to about 25,000 idle operatives. The decision to close was reached by the manufusturers at their seeret meet ing yesterday, and is the result of an agreement to close the mills at any time that three-fourths of the looms were silent for any cause, This, wus trne yesterday, and today's notiee re sulted. The shut-down will leave a total of 3,275 employes at work in tbe Barnaby Manufacturing company, Fall River Iron works, Connecticut and Seaeon net mills. These establishments are engaged in the manufacture of goods that do not come under the manufac turers' agreement. The Weavers' as sociation met this afternoon to discuss the advisability of calling off the King Philip mill strike, which bas been ou for some time. If this is done it will place tbe strikers on the same footing with tbe other employes. NEW HAMPSHIRE JOINS. Sun Cook, N. II.. Aug. 23.

They obj-oted strenuously, finally went out, and today refuse to return. No tices of a reduction have been posted in tbe Webster and Pembroke mills also and strikes may follow. The weavers, wbo are nearly all French Canadians, are not members of a union, but now will probably organize. Out of 2.4T1 looms in tbe China, Webster and Pembroke mills 2,060 nre rnnuing this afternoon. Agent Jewell stated to an Associated Press reporter this noon that he hoped for an amica ble settlement of the difficulty, but in ease none was arrived at within a short time work iu all the mills would be stonped.

Aug. 23 The sixty ex-Coxeyits who wer nnloadead from a train from Baltimore Inst night, whither tbey bad been s-nt by the Maryland authorities after having been released from that state's bonae of cor rection, met with h chilly re ception from tlia local authori ties today. The late follow ers of the commonweal agitator spent the night wherever they could find shelter, and this morning two of thir number, aeting as a committee. called at. the office of Mayor Stuart. Iheir olj-ct was to raquest that honi' ward transportation be furnished tno ni'mters of the army, i lie chief executive, however, was not in the city, and an attache of his office di rected them to Superintendent of Po lio Linden. With meek countenance the pair ap peared before the latter funotionary and related their story, only to be met witb a bluff "Get out of town as quickly as you can." In thus admon ishing the committeemen the police superintendent made no reference to the furnishing of transportation, but supplemented bis advice with n warn ing that the Philadelphia, house of cor rection would receive the army, indi vidually end collectively, if it did uot d'-pnrt. Tbe superintendent afterward re lented and said the army might stay in the city if it went to work, but tbe committee were not seeking employ ment and they withdrew. As the police are keeping a sharp watch upon the hobos their departure brfore long, by a route as yet unselscted, is looked for. CROOKS ARRESTED.

EIGHT HOUSES BURNED TO ASHES A Disastrous Conflagration Caused by the Exploding of a Lamp in Mrs. Coyne's Cellar Fire Engines from Central City Sent to Assist in Con trolling the Flames A House Torn Down to Stay the Fire's Progress. THE village of Minooka was swept by firn at midnight and eight houses in tbe center of tbe place woro burned to tbe ground, at a total loss of not less than $3J,OdO. Tbe firu originated in the basement of the grocery storo of John J. Coyne, on Main street, in tbe center of a block of frame houses. A liiuip in tbe cellar of Coyne's store exploded and ignited a large petroleum tank, nilod with nearly bfty gallons of heudlight oil. . The residents were were awakened from their elumbor by the report of the explosion of the tank, and iu U-hj than live minutes when tbey rushed to the street, buga volumes of fl lines were seen breaking from the windows in the cellar of the store. Before thoy could collect their senses the fire bad erupt up the side- walls and were licking the wood work of adjoining buildings. THE FIRE SPREADS. The store in which the fire started wus annexed to a lare doable dwell ing house, owned by Mrs. Coyne, mother of John J. Coyne, and is ten anted byier funiily and the family of John M'lhady. Iu fifteen minutes tbo store and double dwelling were a mass of fl lines. The bouse of Thomas Kear ney, on the north, next caught lire and was speedily consumed, communicat ing the fir. to tin house of John Gil higher, which met a like fate, as did tbe large dwelling of Timothy Lydon. Wbilo tbe fire wus eating its way to Lydou's houpe, about 20d Di'-u attacked n two-story building btdotiging to the Judge estate, and in a shore hour every stick of timber was toru away and the progress of the fire was checked for the time being. On the south side of Coyne's store the houses were not so closely situated and it took longer for the fire to spread. First the house occupied, by Timothy Iliggins caugnt, next tuc -story-end-a-naif building untenanted, owned ' by the Michael Costollo estate, and then the splendid new residence of John Lowry caught fire. KIRE COMPANIES ARRIVE. A telephone message was sent to Chief Engineer rerber, of the Scranton fire department and, although it was outside the city limits, he ordered box 05 to be pulled, and tbe Aeptnne, Ceu tury and William Council companies responded. Tne new Neptune Bteamer was attached to the pi ok at the corner of Birney avenue and Sanders street. and two lines of hoso were linktd to gether to reach the lire. Chif Farber direated the stream to be turned ou Lydon's house, and in a fow minutes the spread of tbe fire was checked. On the other side a bucket brigade kept the house or lhomas JLoughney saturated with water and prevented the flames from reaching it. Alto gether there were eight houses de stroyed and one raznd to the ground. The burned district sums up a loss of $:0,00, and not one-fourth ot is covered iiy insurance. John J. Coyne is the greatest loser. He had his store and stock insured for about half of their vilue, and he lost every article he owned, not even sav ing his books. His mother had nearly $500 in her room and this was burned up. Tbe fire spread so rapidly that those whose homes were destroyed had no time to save scarcely anything of value. At one time the crowd of over 5,000 persons stampeded and many escaped miraculously from injury in rushing from beneath tbe trolley wire which bad become loose through the burning of two poles. . The fire companies kopt the stream on the ruins until 1.3J and the fire wus entirely extinguished. PROHIBITIONISTS ORGANIZE. Meeting Held on West Market Street, Provid.cc.
