Seattle, W. T.,.1u1y 21.—The case
of Kumsey vs. the Territory of Wash
ington on appeal was before the Su
preme Court to-day. Kumsey was
one of the party who assaulted the
Chinese in Squaw Valley two years
ago, killing three, mnrdering two and
driving all the others away. After
several unsuccessful attempts to con viot
him and others of murder they wen'
indicted for riot and Kumsey was
convicted. The principal point in his
appeal to the Supreme Court was the
incompetency of the female jurors and
involved the consideration of a recent
decision declaring woman suffrage
act invalid. After the prosecuting attor
ney had made his opening argument
the court unanimously held that no
reply was needed and declined to hear
from the opposing counsel. This

due has been certified and patented
for the lxmefit of the road. The com

Within its granted limits, no matter
how occasioned, and ahotlla this claim
he allowed, the company would still

Albcqi erqi c, N. M., July 21.—
Pullet particulars have reached this
city from Socorro in regard to two men
Ixdng blown into eternity by a prema
ture blast at the stone quarry of Har
ley & Larkins. From an employe at
the quarry the following account was
obtained : I). Solare, the quarry fore
man, assisted by Fred Miller and two
Mexicans had drilled an eighteen-foot
hole and charged it with two kegs of
black ]H)Wiler. Mr. Solare then took
a slick of giant powder, attached a
cap and fuse and dropped it down the
hole. It lodged when part way down,
and Solare thereupon grasped along
rod of pipe and ordered Callltano Rod
riguez to hold it while he with a rock
pounded the giant jwwder and cap to
the bottom. As soon as Miller under
stood his intention lie and the other
Mexican started to run. and none too
soon, as they had hardly passed a
point of safety when
THE EXPLOSION OCCURRED.
Hastily returning to the scene they
commenced searching for their friends,
and found Solare about fifty feet from
the hole. The iron rod with which
he was knocking the jx>wder had en
tered his neck and passed out through
his mouth, and his body was shattered
and burned into an unrecognizable
mass. He was removed to the cabin,
where he lived until 8 o'clock. The
Mexican, Rodriguez, was found in an
other direction about thirty feet from
the hole. He was also terribly pow
der burned, his right hand blown off
and both eyes destroyed, and the
amputation of his right arm is his only
chance of recovery. The foreman, to
whose carelessness the accident is due,
had !>een connected with quarries for
the past ten years, and thoroughly un
do rstood his business.

WASHINGTON VS. DETROIT.
Washington, July 21. —Tlie last
game of the series closed iiere to-day
between the Washington and Detroits,
and was, without a doubt, the best
game played this season. Ten in
nings failed to decide the first contest,
which was called on account of dark
ness. Ten innings were also necessary
to decide yesterday's game, which the
home team won. The game to-day,
however, capped the climax, and the
home team accomplished an act which
no other club has succeeded in doing
this year, that of retiring a big team
without a ruu. The main cause of
this result was the masterly pitching
of Gihnore, who, from the start, had
