Of the Attempted Holdup of a North­
ern Pacific' Train on the Pacific
Coast Recently.
Seven Men in the Gang and They
Make an Attempt to Blow up
Passenger^ Closely Guarded and Com­
pelled to Remain ifi Coaches
but no Booty Secured.
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.
Account of the Holdup as Wired to
a a
St. Paul, Aug. 27.—A telegram has
been received by the general manager
of the Northern Pacific railway from
a diyision superintendent, stating^that
train No. 3 of that road, in charge of
Conductor William Gilbert and Engi­
neer G. H. Wilson, had been stopped
four miles west of Sand Point, Ida., by
a gang of seven or eight men.
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.
A tramp named William Pearson,"
who was stealing a ride on the bag­
gage car, said that he saw two of the
men's faces and could identify them.
He was held at Spokane.
The work is believed to be that of
tramps.
CAUSE REIGN OF TERROR.
Drunken Harvesters Loot' Restau­
rants Along the Railway.
Winnipeg, Aug. 27.—Drunken har­
vesters who came from Eastern Can­
adian provinces are fugitives from jus­
tice. Two score or more who are bad
ly wanted by Canadian ofilcers are
said to be hiding somewhere near the
international.. boundary. An armed
posse may possibly effect a capture.
While en route to Winnipeg the har­
vesters rushed from the coaches at
every stopping place in a body and
after quickly disposing of restaurant
keepers looted the establishments and
then tried to demolish them. fThey
caused a reign of terror for a distance
of over 200. miles. Several restaurant
men are reported badly'injured. .Get
'ting wind that they were "wanted^
the men hurriedly left the coaches
here and went south to the Dakota
line.

RUSSIA'S FOREIGN TRADE.
American Import?, for the Year Alone
Show an Increase.
$t. Petersburg, Aug. 27.—The official
report on Russia's foreign trade for
the first four months of 1902 shows
the American importations to be vir­
tually the same as in 1900, apparently
indicating that Russian, buyers have
become fully convinced it is, better
to buy American machinery in spite
of the discriminating duty against it
The comparative figures for 1900, 1901
and 1902 are, respectively, $8,980,000,
$7,153,000 and $8,913,500. In the
meantime German and British Imports
'have fallen, their figures being $34,
061,500, $32,216,500. and, $30,897,000,
and $15,064,000, $14,317,000 and $10,
394,000. The total qnports have con­
tinued falling, so that the share of
America is relatively larger than in
1900. The exportations continue lo in
crease.. ...

"Fargo, N. D., Aug. 27.—The formal
announcement of the candidacy of
former Congressman M. N. Johnson of
Nelson county for the United States
senate has been made. The announce­
ment is fully authorized.
It is thought that Johnsbn will be
unable to organize the Hansbrough op­
position, though he will command con­
siderable strength.

sued a statement in. which he declares
his intention to become a candidate
for Senator Hansbrough's place.

mitted at Ciudad Bolivar by both the
government troops and the revolution­
ists.

Secretary of the Treasury Does Not
Favor Suoh a Method.
Washington, Aug. 27.—Secretary of
the Treasury Shaw, who has been
watching the condition of banks and
the money market closely, realizes
thftt the time is coming soon when de­
mands are likely to be made 'on the
treasury by the business interests of

lief.

II
President Grants the Request of Gen
eral Miles to Make Tour of
the Philippines.
Is Instructed to Give ^Particular" At"
tention to Condition of the
Army Over There.
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. Some
such work as this was undertaken a
few months efgo by Inspector General
Breckenridge, who has prepared a
voluminous set of reports, which have
not yet been published, making sug­
gestions for the betterment of the mil­
itary service at every point from
transportation down to discipline, ac­
coutrements and supplies.
In the absence from Washington of
General Miles no one at army head­
quarters is fully authorized to discuss
the details of his projected trip. But
it is believed here that he will be ac­
companied by at least two members of
his staff, namely Lieutenant Colonel
Whitney and Colonel Reber, the latter
his son-in-law. 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.

duced 3,805,500 ounces of gold, valued

ARBITRATION THE RIGHT WAY.
Pittsburg, Aug. 27.—Justice Shiras
of the federal supreme court in an in­
terview here declared arbitration the
only logical method of settling the coal
strike. The subject of non-enforce­
ment was a subject -of grave importance
to national lawmakers. The non-in­
corporation of labor unions is the prin­
cipal difficulty in the way of arbitra­
tion l?.w.

Cleveland. Aug. 27.—Grand Master
Lee of the Brotherhood of Railway

days. The possibility of a strike is
v,ery remote.
ANOTHER DEATH FROM SHOOTING
Harold Sweet, a young fellow who
came out to Fargo to work in the har­
vest field, died in the Darrow hospital
at Moorhead as the result of a gunshot
wound.
The three brothers. Raymon, Harold
and W. C. Sweet, came to Fargo and
were on their way from their home at
White Earth, Minn., to Courtenay,
where they were to work during the
threshing season, one of the brothers
having worked there for several years.
They went west to the Milwaukee
crossing where they were waiting for
a west bound train which they hoped
to board for Valley City. They had
banked their camp fire and were just
about to crawl into their .blankets when
three masked men attacked them with
clubbed revolvers. Two of the broth­
ers ran and shots were fired at them
to make t.hem stand. The eldest
brother stood his ground and fought
with one of the robbers while the other
two robbers went through and robbed
the other brothers, securing $7.o0 and
two watches. The elder brother was
giving the robber his "needin's" and
the robber shouted lustily for help. One
of the man's pals came up and shot
young Sweet and then a fight between
the other brothers ensued, but the rob­
bers escaped, with the exceptioii of the
man the first brother was fighting with.
They managed to get him to the police
station. He gave his name as John
Rooney and is not omly tougli looking
but is a tough in reality. He had upon
his person a loaded revolver, 3S cal­
iber. and a bowie knife. Sweet was
shot through the lung and died after
an operation.
FIREMAN KILLED.
Fireman Hutchinson of the N. P.
was killed at Anoka, west of Minnea­
polis Monday night and Engineer Geo.
Wilson had an ankle broken. It ap­
pears that when the Northern Pacific
local running between Minneapolis and
Mandan. had reached the crossing of
the Great Northern line with -the
Northern Pacific, there wf^s a freight
train standing over the crossing. Fire­
man Hutchinson jumped to save him­
self arnd when he struck the ground,
fell backwards and struck the back of
his head upon the rail, crushing in his
skull. He soon died. Engineer Geo.
Wilson stayed by the engine and was
unhurt at the time, but while working
about the wrecking machinery which
was clearing up the wreck, got one of
his ankles broken.

National President of the Street Car
Men Uses His Influence to Avert :.
a Strike. ••••••. 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. The
votes were counted later and although
no public statement of the vote was
made it was understood that the rad­
ical men carried the referendum
against the company by nearly ten to
one. 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.
DESPITE THE INJUNCTION.
Striking Linemen Continue to Cut Tel­
ephone Wires.
New Orleans, Aug. 27.—As a result
of the linemen's strike, which has now
been on for several weeks, the Cum­
berland company is meeting with great
difficulty in operating its service here
in spite of the blanket injunction re­
cently issued by Judge Parlange in the
federal court. Tuesday the police re­
ported that forty-eight wires belong­
ing to the company at Pitt and Joseph
streets had been cut during the night
and the ends found lying on the
ground at daylight. The effect was to
put many of the telephones in the up­
per residence district of the city out
of service.
The company is still bringing men
here from bther points but has had to
appeal to the police to protect them.
Monday three of the men who came
from Nashville were badly beaten.
Later in the day the Cumberland
company, through Manager Powell, ap­
plied to the mayor for permission to
arm their men.
TROOPS ON THE SCENE.
Possible Outbreak at Summit Hill, Pa,
Averted.
Summit Hill, Pa., Aug. 27.—Excite­
ment prevails throughout the Panther
Creek district. At daybreak the strik­
ers assembled to prevent nonunion
men from going to work. Anticipating
trouble Major Gearhart sent two com­
panies of soldiers in trolley cars from
the camp in Manila park to this place
and their presence prevented a possi­
ble outbreak.
Several nonunionists had been at­
tacked and the town was in a turmoil.
The soldiers escorted the workmen
through the mob that had collected
