Spokane, Wash., Aug. 27.—The west bound Northern Pacific train was held up at Sand Point, Ida., sixty-five miles east of here, at il p. jn. The robbers, of whom there were seven, forced the engineer to stop the train, after which they uncoupled the express car. Then they compelled the engineer, at the point of a revolver, to pull up the track about three miles further, where they tried to wreck the car with dynamite. The explosives failed to work for some unknown cause and after spending fif teen minutes with the car the robbers decamped, allowing the engineer to go back to the train witli the engine. Two other thugs had guarded the train, keeping the passengers inside by firing revolvers along the sides. No attempt was made to molest the passengers and, after the engine came back, the other robbers left and the train came on to Spokane. The train was heavily loaded. GENERAL MANAGER'S REPORT.

The engineer was ordered to call out the express messenger, and went back to the express car for that purpose, ,but the messenger refused to come 'out. There Was considerable shouting, and the bandits shot their guns re peatedly in the air, but evidently be came frightened, for they ordered the fireman to. cut off the. enjgine and the engineer to run it two miles west. On stopping the engine, the engineer was ordered to walk bacjc to his train. About twenty shots were fired, but no one hurt and no one robbed. Officers were notified of the attempt ed robbery as soon as possible.

Not to Interfere in Any Way With General Chaffee or His Successor General Davis. Washington, Aug. 27.—Thfe war CS partment has given out the order is sued to Lieutenant General Miles to go to the Philippines. It is signed by William Sanger, acting secretary oi war, and is as follows: "Sir: I have the honor to state that your application for authority to in spect that portion of the army serving in the Philippines is approved by the president. You will sail about the 15th of September and in inspecting the conditions of the army will give particular attention to its instruction, discipline and to supplies of all kinds." It is the understanding that, in that capacity, though of superior rank, General Miles will not interfere in any way with either General Chaffee or his successor, General Davis, in the direc tion of the army in the Philippines. He will critically examine the condi tions as he finds them, devoting his attention entirely to matters of army administration and not to political af fairs, and the results of his work will be embodied in a spt of reports.

Colonel Maus, who is the inspecting officer of the staff, also may accompany General Miles if his health, which is somewhat impaired at present, permits. Leaving about Sept. 15, and allowing a month for a tour of inspection of the principal islands of the archipelago. General Miles should return to Wash ington early in January next. HAS SENT UP PRICES. American Demand for British Iron and Steel. New York, Aug. 27.—Increased de mand for British iron from Chicago, New York and Philadelphia has sent up prices here, says a London dis patch to the Tribune. A report that orders have been received for 60,000 tons has not been confirmed with au thority, but the American demand for manufactured iron and steel has suf ficed to stiffen prices and compensate for a declining trade from India and Australia and the stagnant condition of South Africa. When the Amer ican steel combination was formed there was a general conviction among British, iron masters that there must be a defensive movement among the manufacturers here and jn Germany and Belgium. Exports 6f iron and steel from these countries have been increasing steadily since December and the effect of the American combi nation is not dreaded as it was last year. The British market has not been converted into a dumping ground for American iron and steel and prices have risen with the increased demand for export to the' United States. GOLD AND SILVER.

Cii Chicago, Aug. 27.—Grave possibil ities of a strike that may tie up ail the street railway lines of the West and North Sides of this city confront the officials of the Union Traction com pany. By an overwhelming vote the local union of the Amalgamated Asso ciation of Street Car Employes refused to accept the proposition made by President Roach several days ago. The overture of the company, which includes an increase of 1 cent an hour in wages, the dissolution of a rival employes' association and the employ ment of none but union men, was bal lotted on by nearly 3,0001 men.

An agreement between the union and the railway company exists where by disagreements shall be settled by ar bitration. William Mahon,, interna tional president of the street car men, tried to exert his influence to avert any strike action and to urge "that the union live up to its laws. A rupture, however, occurred between the local officials and President Mahon and he left their meeting with a statement that if the men struck without trying arbiration the general union would not support them in the issue.
