Grand Duke Boris Denies Story of Siberian Atrocities. San Francisco, Aug. 12.—"Those stories are all humbug," said the Grand Duke Boris Of Russia when questioned in an interview here as to statements made by Harry de Windt, the explorer, concerning alleged cruelties practiced upon exiles in some of the Siberian outposts. One sta tion In particular the explorer de scribed as a "hell upon earth" and said "Of all the men and women there only two are accused of actual crime. The others are political agitators." "I don't know Mr. de Windt," said the grand duke. "Of course Russian discipline is strict in Siberia. It has to be so." England and France have treated prisoners more severely than have the Russian authorities the exiles to Siberia. "Why there should be such a thing as an exile system in any country is another question. Once in Siberia, to? whatever cause, the prisoners or ex iles, if you please, are not subjected to InhumaiMreatment. "There may be an^ doubtless are Isolated cases of undue severity, as in the prisons and asylums of the United States and every other country. The responsible Russian authorities al ways see that justice is "done in these cases. It is a fact that thousands of exiles, when pardoned and fr^e to re turn to Russia, elect to stay in Siberia, Thousands of them are prosperous and happy in that faraway land today.". Plans of the Steamship Combine. New York, Aug. 12.—From what it :i considers a reliable source the Journal of Commerce hears that the securities of the Morgan combination of trans atlantic steamship lines will soon be placed upon the market.

Action Renders Four Thousand People Homeless and in Need of „!.v Assistance. Commander McCrea Reports to the Navy Department that Insurgents Have Blockaded. Port au Prince, Hayti, Aug. 12.—The correspondent of the Associated Press has visited Petit Goave and found that the town has been entirely de stroyed, there being nothing left but a pile of ruins. About 4,000 persons are homeless and greatly in need of as sistance. The greater number of them have sought shelter In the Simmonds factories near the town. The French cruiser d'Assas arrived at Petit Goave Sunday with provisions for the suf ferers and returned to Port au Prince with 200. women and children and fif teen wounded men. The authorities refused to permit the Firminists to leave, fearing they would go to other points to take up arms again. Each party accuses the other of hav ing set fire to Petit Goave, but the gen eral belief is that General Chicoye, the Firminist commander, resolved to de stroy/the town when he saw that he could not hold it against the Fouchard ists. Washington, Aug. 12.—Minister Powell has cabled the state depart ment from Cape Haytien that the pro visional (Vasquez) government of Hayti has notified the United States legation that Gonaives, Port de Paix, Petit Goave and St. Marc provinces are in rebellion. The government troops captured Petit Goave after strong resistance in which many lives were lost. Firmin's troops in retreat ing from the place set fire to and de stroyed the town. REPORTED BY M'CREA. Insurgents Establish a Blockade at Cape Haytien. Washington, Aug. 12.-—Commander McCrea of the gunboat Machias has cabled the navy department that a de facto blockade had been established by the insurgents at Cape Haytien. The Machias is at her anchorage. The following is the text of the dis patch received by the navy depart ment from Commander McCrea of the gunboat Machias: "Your dispatch has been received. Having notified the Haytien admiral Killick of determination to protect for eign commerce and telegraph cables and to resist bombardment without due notice, he replied accepting terms, with notice to all of foreign consuls that this port is blockaded in accord ance with the orders of .the cabinet council established at Gonaives, Hayti. Blockade is de facto and prohibits the entrance of merchant vessels. Firmin signs proclamation. Moderate force expected to arrive Tuesday from Gonaives. I ought not to leave my anchorage." Acting Secretary of Navy Darling sent the following reply to Commander McCrea: "If the blockade is not effective Cu ban, American and unprotected, inno cent, neutral vessels should be pro tected in their international rights. Can send you collier from San Juan if. necessary." ROSEHILL'S CLAIM VOID. 8overejgnty of Japan Over Marcus Isl and to Be Admitted. Washington, Aug. 12.—The claim of Captain Andrew T. Rosehill of Hono lulu to ownership of Marcus island, pver which he raised the Stars and Stripes in 1889, will be formally denied by the state department as soon as cer tain additional information to sub stantiate Japan's claim to sovereignty over it has been received. In. addition to denying Captain Rosehill's claim, it acknowledges Japan's sovereignty. The decision is based on his failure to comply with the law of the United States concerning guaho islands. Cap tain Rosehill found the island in 1889, but he did not file thebond required by law until this year, on the eve of his departure from Honolulu with an ex pedition to ^exploit the guano beds. In the meantime Japanese subjects have, been living on the island and .working the deposits, and in 1898 the Japanese government formally annexed it and proclaimed the fact.

TO BREAK THE COAL STRIKE. Plan Submitted to the President by Former Labor-Leader. New York, Aug. 12.—President Roosevelt has Jin his hands, according to the World, a plan submitted by Martin Dolphin, former president of the International Order of Railroad and Commercial Telegraphers, by which, Mr. Dolphin thinks, the strike in the anthracite coal fields could be 4nded. President Roosevelt referred the proposition to the attorney gener al's department and it is now -being considered by H. H. Hoyt, acting ati torney general. This plan is to ,have the government exercise the right of eminent domain, and seize a certain number of the mines and operate them for the-purr pose of taking out all the hard coal re quired by the government in its va rious buildings, on the shifcs of the navy department and for all other governmental purposes. The right of the government to inter vene in a strike which interferes in any way with governmental functions was proved, Mr. Dolphin contends, by President Cleveland's action In the Chicago strike of 1893, when he or dered out United States troops to keep the strikers from interfering with the transportation of the mails. In the present case intervention of the kind he advocates, Mr. Dolphin says, jsrouldmlso, break the backbone of the strike by forcing the Operators to resume work in all the mines.

New York, Aug. 12.—Senator Thom as C. Piatt has clearly indicated, ac cording to the Herald, that the Repub lican state platform this year will ig nore Cuban reciprocity, as advocated by President JRoosevelt and indorsed by the Iowa state platform, and confine itself chiefly to state issues. When asked how the Cuban reciprocity is sues would be treated in the state platform Senator Piatt said: "I have not heard that matter dis cussed. I ck not know that the state platform will deal with federal issues. We have issues enough of our own here in the state." It was suggested that the Republic ans of Iowa had taken a different view of the matter. "As"the Republicans of' Iowa have about everything in the national gov ernment It is proper that they should take charge of federal issues," Sena tor Piatt replied. DENOUNCE FEDERAL JUDGES.

II Bold Attempt Made by Firebug to Pestoy the Business Section of Peoria, Illinois. Half a Dozen Blazes Started in Rapid Succession and Damage Reaches @200,000. Incendiary Has Played Havoc for Months and Police Believe ihey Have Guilty Man. Peoria, 111., Aug. 12.—A bold at tempt was made at noon to fire the business portion of the city. The loss es include: Horace Clark & Sons' mill, |100,000 Neumlller's livery barn and twenty horses, $50,000 O'Leary's undertaking' establishment, $25,000. The Neumiller Livery company's barn at 600 Adams street were fired by, an incendiary and twenty horses were suffocated. Only one horse was saved from the fire. The entire stock ot carriages was destroyed. The O/Leary undertaking establishment and contents are a total loss. Previous to this fire an attempt was made to fire the storerooms and of fices of the Val Blatz Brewing com pany a few blocks away. A residence was fired early in the morning. The firebug has played havoc in Peoria for months and the reward of $500 does not effect his capture. While the Neumiller fire was raging the torch was applied to the roller mills of Horace Clark & Sons, a few blocks away and the entire plant was wiped out. The police think they have arrested the firebug. TREASURY DEFRAUDED. 4 _____ Integrity of Government Appraisers Attacked. Washington,. Aug. 12.—Charges in volving the integrity of the govern ment appraisers in the customs serv ice and indicating gigantic steals in connection with the admission of china and pottery from abroad have been made to Secretary of the Treas ury Shaw. The losses are said to exceed even the amounts lost through the frauds in Japanese silks. It is asserted that a system of un dervaluation has been practiced for the last twenty years which has caused a loss to the treasury of from $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 a year. Referring to the above statement Secretary Shaw said that this question was not a new one. Charges of under valuation on pottery had been made from time to time, covering a number of years, and when made by responsi ble parties they always had been in vestigated. At present the department has agents at work on the other side looking into the market price of pot tery and it is possible that an increase in prices of certain kinds and quali ties may be necessary. At present there is no evidence in the possession of the government showing that it has been defrauded out of large sums by pottery undervaluations. LOOKING FOR BARTHOLIN. Developments in Connection With Re cent Chicago Murders. Chicago, Aug. 12.—Developments in the mysterious murders of Minnie Mitchell and Mrs. Annie Bartholin have led the police to double their ef forts to locate William J. Bartholin, respectively fiance and son of the two women. At the inquest over the body of the older woman, which was found Saturday night crammed into a hole in the cement floor of the Bartholin home, neighbors readily identified the corpse as that of Mrs. Bartholin. The burial of Minnie Mitchell by her family removed all doubt in the public mind that the body found in the field at Seventy-fourth and State streets last Week was that of the young woman Who was last seen with Bartholin. Complete hearing over Mrs. Bartho lin's body was postponed by the coro ner until Aug. 21 in the hope that ad ditional clews to the murders may be obtained. It has developed that young Bartho lin had quarreled With his mother just before she disappeared over the question, of bringing his prospective wife to live at his mother's home. :.s MAY SUCCEED WHITE.

TELEGRAPHIC MARKET LETTEE Minneapolis, Aug. 12.—There was nothing in the government report is sued yesterday afternocn to console shorts or induce a continuation of the aggressive selling which has charac terized the various wheat pits the past two weeks. Cables after opening un changed at 1:30 p. m. were %d higher. Receipts were quite heavy at Chicago, being 489 cars, but were for two days against 262 last year for one day. Duluth reported gobd cash business for expor't which with seaboard business amounted to nearly three-quarters of a million bushels. Weather^ is excel lent for harvesting purposes, being suffiientiy cool to procure abundant help. Around theopening shorts covered considerably but on the subse quent rally put out most of what had been covered. Considering the bull ish interpretation of the government report which ^showed a condition of 89.7 as compared with 92.4 last month the rally is quite feeble. Corn cabes started lower but receipts were again small* being but !2 cars. The government report was considered quite bearish but prices, it would seem, have pretty thoroughly dis counted the most favorable conditions from now on. This weather is not conducive to the development of corn and a .material moderation of tempera tures is imperative to bring a very large percentage out of frost danger. The trade, however, continues some what bearish and on rallies are show ing no hesitancy in taking the short side which is undoubtedly proper un der existing favorable circumstances. Oats displayed considerable firmness considering the heavy receipts. There were 549 cars at Chicago, 77 of con tract quality. There is quite a short interest in the more deferred options which will be materially increased if receipts continue. Provisions opened a shade off on lower prices at the yards. The run was light but previous observations have misled many in this regard and this feature is unimportant for the present. There is on denying the fact thait holders of provisions have be come well discouraged and gradually worked into the short side which has brought about a condition favorable to a sharp upturn. Chicken Thieves Shoot Sheriff.. Toledo, O., Aug. 12.—Sheriff W. C. Barnhill of Henry county was shot and it is feared mortally wounded by chicken thieves.

Minister Advises the State Department that Germans Intend to Land a Force. Instructions to Commander of the Topeka to Land a Force of American Marines. Washington, Aug. 12.—Minister Bo wen. at Caracas, has advised the state department that the Germans in tend to land a naval force at Porto Cabello to protect German interests there which are threatened by the up rising now in progress. The minister advised that we follow suit. After a conference between the officials of the state and navy departments instruc tions were cabled to Commander Nichols of the Topeka to proceed from La Guayra to Porto Cabello and to land a naval force in case of attack. The Topeka has already left for Porto Cabello. The Topeka will probably reach Porto Cabello, which is only a short sail from La Guayra, in a few hours. The trouble at Porto Cabello grows out of the uprising which has convulsed Venezuela for some time. It is direct ed against President Castro and has kept the country in a state of ferment for many months. There appears to be no question as to the right of the German naval forces to land for the protection of German interests. It in no way in volves the Monroe doctrine. Germany has been keeping close watch on Ven ezuela for some months and at one time contemplated taking a Venezue lan port in order to compel the pay ment of certain German claims. The present landing of a German force has no connection with Germany's former move against Venezuela, although the assurances heretofore given by Ger many serve in the present case to show that there is no ulterior purpose behind the protection of German inter ests at Porto Cabello. The following instructions were ca bled to the Topeka: "Be ready' to land force in case of attack of port for protection of Amer ican interests and for protection of for eign- property also if requested. Pre vent bombardment without due no tice." VENEZUELAN CABLE CUT. Revolutionists in Control of the City of Barcelona.
