Some of the Democratic leaders who
saw the president this morning have
urged bim strongly to sign the bill.
They have represented thHt any other

tbe party, and it would be a serious
handicap to them when on the stump

president is reported to have heard

New Prophets in Knsai City Say So
and Call the Dab Strike a Sign.
Kansas City, Au. 23. A small
pamphlet entitled, "What Do These
Things Mean?" is being freely distri
buted among the homes, particularly
of workingmen, about town. It at
tempts to prove that the end of the
world is at hand, and that the wonderful
things told in the Book of Revelations
are about to come to pasj.
Tbe recent railroad strike is adduced
as a last sign of prophecy. Tbls last
sign, it declares, is distress with per
plexity. The pamphlet is published by
tbe International Liberty assosiatioo.
At their office ne one was able to fix
tbe exact day for tbe end of the world,
but it was stated that the present gen

A Eidlonloue Mistake In the Coal Bohed

Washington, Aug. 23 Another

these paragraphs in Seotion 441 of tbe

Altoona's Bank Cashier Enroute for the
Flowery Kingdom.
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.
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
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
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.

Herald says: "The steamer Longavi,
belonging to the Compania Sud-Auisr-icana,

Employes Non-Committal About
Conferring Over 25,000 Thous
and Are Idle.
Fall Riveb, Aug. 23.
THE great textile strike here tod:iy
developed into a lookont, and,
n a resul', tonight will see 25.
000 idle mill operatives in the
eiiy ot Fall Itiver. 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
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.
Sun Cook, N. II.. Aug. 23. Four
hundred weavers in tbe China mills
here did not go to work this morning
as a result of the reduotion in wages
equal to the cut down in the Fall River
mills. Wages here are governed by
the scale iu Fall River, and the opera
tives were accordingly notified of
a 10 per sent, eut dowu on Tuesday.
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.

New Bedford, Mass., Aug. 23 Tbe
principal feature of interest in the
strike situation today is the conference
to be held tonight ou the call f Mayor
Brownell. The labor secretaries have
voted to attend, but manufacturers ure
non-committal. Messrs. Barry and
Warner, of tbe state board of arbitra
tion, have arrived. They said they had
come Bimply to look over the grouud and
will decide later on their course. Tbe
gentlemen bold a conference with the
officials of the Spinner's union. Later
they bad a session with Mayor Brown

weavers and back boys bold meetings
on the Common this morning. Tbe
boys took steps toward tbe formation
of a union and passed rules for fining
boisterous members. It was voted to

with several officials, at once made an
investigation of the burned premises
and discovered some articles missing.
Among those were several pieees of
silverware and wearing apparel with

over tbe bouse were found to have been
oiled and set on fire, Four of these
are in the cellar and the others on tbe

positive evidence that the fire was the
work or an incendiary, inis adds
another murder mystery to Camden

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 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.
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

$500 in her room and this was burned

At one time the crowd of over 5,000
persons stampeded and many escaped

entirely extinguished.

issues marriage licenses,
"Step into the next room, madam,"
