If the baseball editor of the Yel
'1 loVstone Journal is to be accepted as
stating facts as they "really exist, the
"entire Miles City mental aquarium"
is "plunged into mourning" and the
"gold flsh which have been nursed
there, in ,the shape of pleasant illu
sions regarding the prowess of its
baseball team," have been killed off.
The men from "Alkali Flat" are the
ones responsible for .the undoubted
advance in the price of emblems of

at the mouth of the Tongue. The
slaughter took place yesterday after

* twice in succession, when the Miles
lans came up this way yesterday they
were inclined to take themselves al
together too seriously. But they were
excusable. The record they had made,
With the aid of the North Dakota lea
gue, was a good one and they had rea
son to feel well pleased with them
selves. Four games straight from the
two best teams in the eastern part
of the state was something to be proud
The prediction made by The Ga
zette, that when the aggregation left
its own barnyard it might have a dif
ferent story to tell upon its return
home, proved a true one. For some
reason the members did not maintain
the reputation which preceded them
and the game they put up was a dis
appointment to the fans. They ex
pected something better. Their field
ing was ragged and they seemed to
lack the vim and dash of the home
players and, did not play together as
well as they should. Excuse for this
was made by.them that three of their
best men were unable to come, but as
the substitutes gave every evidence
of having "been there before," the
excuse was not as good as might have
been given. But the score tells thy

tz and Billings Tomorrow.
/¶omorrow the combination known
throughout northern Wyoming as the
'.Omaha-Dietz" team will make its
first appearance on the local diamond.
it is coming for the purpose of re
deeming the good name of the north
ere part of the state to the south,
which sufered somewhat through the
fizzle made by the Sheridanites when
they came to play for the champion
ship., Accepting as. true the stories
told of the team by those who claim.
to know something concerning its
composition and mode of playing the
game tomorrow should be fast enough
to please everybody.
In deference to the Maverick Hose
company, whose Memorial day occurs
tomorrow, thp game will not be call

may wish to attend the exercises may
do so.

And by Restoring Democratic Pres
tige in That State Strengthen
His Own' Hand.
Washington, Aug. 29.-A sharp pq
litical move is being played to, gain
three democratic seats in the next
congress from the state of Maryland.
The democrats have succeed in hav
ing an additional republican candi
date placed in the field in each of
three rather close districts, in the
hope of dividing, the vcte to such an
extent that democrats will be elected.
The so-called "justice party," com
p0sed almost exclusively of colored
republicans who are backing candi
dates of their own selection, is certain
to cause some trouble, and the scheme
may pcssibly succeed. There is a
large colored vote in Maryland, the
greater portion of which is republi
can. Through some cause or other
they became dissatisfied with the ex
isting republican state organization,
and receiving much encouragement
from democratic sources they are
making things lively.
It is well known that the skilled
hand of Senator A. P. Gorman is en
gineering the deal, and he is again in
a position to wield a powerful influ
ence in Maryland politics, Gorman
is not being talked of much of late
as the probable democratic candidate
for the presidency two years hence,
but his ambition is still strong to be
come the party leader.
Should Maryland swing strong into
the democratic column in the fall
election the prestige of Arthur P.

Strikers Become More TurbuIent ai
Number of Workmen About
Mines Increase.
Tamaqua, Pa., Aug 3.-n an en
counter ,between troops and . rikers
at Lansford this morning, Ceptai , W.
H. Heim of Company K, Twelifti rgi
melt, was slightly injured. : . i, f
dozen strikedr were bayoneted by:the
soldiers in the fracas. Major.ar
hardt, in command of the troop~.~~, e,
states that he will appeal to the mil
itary authorities to put the town tof
Lansford under inartial law.
From daybreak the troops were ac
tive in quelling disturbances. and pro
tecting non-union men on their way
to work. The ,soldiers were ;jered
wherever they went.
At 5 o'clock, companies K and E
were placed on two trolley cars. '"One
of the cars preceded that whiok car
ried the non-union men to work; and
another took pp the rear. At aSummdit
Hill, about double the usual number
of men availed themselves of the pro
tection of the s6ldiers and *reelt to
work. The news that nibre men than
usual were reporting for work spread
through the lower part ot the *alley
like-wild fire, and in a short -time the
streets were almost blocked with peo
plie. When the cars stopped in Ws
ford to allow several non-union men
to get off; the mob made a rush for
ahem. A half dozen soldiers with lev.
eled guns forced the strikers back,
making a passageway for the noi
union: men.
Closed About Cars.
When the soldiers returned after
escorting their charges to a place of
safety, the mob commenced to close
in around the cars, yelling loudly.
As Captain Heim, of Company K, was
about to jump from the car, he was
seized around the legs and thrown ito
the ground, being severely bruised.
Half a dozen privates, who followed
him, were roughly handled. Major
Ctearhardt then ordered his men to
With clubbed guns and fixed bayo
nets, the soldiers forced the crowd
back. Many of the strikers stood their
ground and would not move until the
soldiers jabbed them with their boy
onets. Some of the strikers, fearing
that the troops would fire, rushed in
to the opera house on the corner and
there was a wild scene of confusion.
In five minutes the 'crowd had been
pushed back to the, curb line. In the
melee several strikers were knocked
down, while others suffered slight
bayonet wounds.
Last night a carload of timber
standing on the Lehigh Coal and Nav
igation company's tracks at Summit
Hill was started dawn the. steep
stretch of road that leads to Lansford.,
The car leaped the track at a sharp
curve and was hurled to the bottom
of a mine breach.
Governor's Troop Called Out.
At midnight the governor's troop,.
Captain Weaver, was sent to Sum
mit Hill to protect the home of Wil
liam Henry, a non-union man. It was
reported that the strikers were firing
on the house.
A part of the troops remained on
guard all night.
Road Patroled by Strikers.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Aug. 29.-The
strikers heard a rumor last night that
the Lehigh Valley Coal company in
tended to co]centrate all its em
ployes- at the various mines into one
working force and operate the Dor
rance colliery and it is said that over
1,000 men turned out this morning
and patrolled the roads leading to the
mines. Sheriff Jacobs went to the
scene, accompanied by a large number
of deputies, but no atteinpt was made
to place any additional men in the
Dorrance mine, and trouble was avert
Are Cutting No Coal..
Philadelphia, Aug. 29.-While bothb
operators and officials of the United
Mine Workers state that the strike'
situation is unchanged, it is eveident
that there is greater activity at pres-1
ent in the coal region than at any time
since the inauguration of the strike.
Coal is daily beipg shipped from varie
ous sections of the field, and several
washeries are known to be in opetra
It does not follow, however, that
any of the companies are cutting coal.
When the strike was declared, a large,
quantity or cut coal was left beneath
the surface, ready for the breaker.
According to the miners' union of
ficials, it is this coal that is now be

Gobini returnef to headquarters to

Ministers of Respective Countries Had

'Washington, Aug. 2tg.-Colombia
will formally demand of Nicaraugua
an explanation in regard to the latter
country's alleged participation in the
revolution against the Colombian gov
ernment and back up her demand

"As Monroeism is deemed by Pres
