Ohio Miners Take to the Dense Woods. While the Situation Is Terr Tessa In All Striking Districts, No Scene* of Violence Occurred —Labor Notes. By the Associated Preis. Cripple Obkek, Colo., June 7.—A1l day rumors of conflicts between depu ties and strikers have been current, bat in no instance have tbey been con firmed. One engagement was reported to have occurred at 9:30 o'clock this morning, in which one or two were kiiled on each Hide. An engagement is reported to have occurred at 7:30 to night, bat lis»e the report of the morn ing it lacks authoritative confirmation. The first detachment of tbe militia ar rived at Beaver Park, tbe ecene of trou ble, this morning. The state troops im mediately marcbed through tbe line of deputies to a point between the con tending forces, from which place they will prevent either deputies or strikers from making an advance. Tbe work of disarmament has not yet begun, nor will the work begin until more state troops are on the ground, which will probably be today. In the meantime, the deputies are anxious to advance on the strikers, and the strikers are ready to receive them, a lew hot-headed ones being anxious to open the light. A small party of deputies under Cap tain Adams rode into Cripple Creek today and were received with open bos til iy by the citizens, Great excitement prevailed but a conflict wan averted. Captain Locke with 1000 deputies has advanced beyond Gillette and has cut down all telegraphic communication so as not to receive restraining orders from Adjutant General Tarsney and to pre vent press dispatches from going out. The latent report is tbat iv the sup posed conflict ot this morning one miner was killed and two dsputies slightly wounded. The wurlare continued throughout tbe day and was carried on in guerrilla fashion. BADLY TREATED. ths Deputies Ao» BrttiaUy With Cap tured Miners. Denver, June 7.—John Shorten, edi tor of the Cripple Creek Herald, pub lished in the interest of tbe miners, wbo were arrested by the denudes sev eral days ago, arrived here today on parole. He tells a sensational slory of the treatment he and others received at the bands of tbe deputies. "Fifteen or twenty of ns," said Mr. Shorten, "were put in a school house for the night without any blankets or beds. Some of tbe men were beaten and not allowed to speak to each other or have writing material. In the morn ing, Under-Sheriff Mailtos' order was to watch the prisoners and if any re fused to do what they were told, to shoot their damned heads off. We marcbed iv single file aud were given some rolls or crackers and whatever coffee was left in an old bucket, and then, at the point of muskets, we were forced to pack water and food for the big camp. The hardest case of all was that of a man named Sullivan, who got a telegram at Cripple Creek telling him that his wife was dying, and asking him to go to Leadville immediately. I aaw this tel egram and when we were captured Sul livan showed it to tbe deputies, but they refused to liberate him and would not even allow him to communicate with nis dying wife or bis family." No Resistance Offered. Cambridge, 0., June 7. —Adjutant- General Howe with 1200 men arrived ■ n a special train today. They pro ceeded at once to Scott's mines on Min eral springs. 15 miles east of here, where no resistance was ehowu by the minerß, wno had taken to the woods to avoid summons in injunction proceedings. The trains that had besu held up there twu clave were found in very bad condi tion, partly unloaded, coupling pius and chains all thrown into the creek and packing taken from the whsela. By 4 o'clock all was cleared up and moved out. About half the troops, with two field pieces, were sent to Franklin, and the remainder are in camp at Scott's mines, with guard* and pickets out. The wild etories About dynamite in the tunnels were unfounded. ' There are no fears of serious complications tonight. A Coroner's Inquest. Pekin, 111.. June 7.—Company D of Lincoln, 111., arrived at Pekin this after noon and was met at tbe depot by Sheriff Frederick and a number of depu ties. At the coroner's inquest today, Thomaß B. Irwiu, editor of tbe Evening Post, and H. C. Kuhl, an insurance agent, both of whom are deputy sheriffs, and Chris Frederick, the sheriff, were beard. They were all eye witnesses to to the bloody affair, and declare tbat John L. Gber, formerly a member of the stale legislature, was the leader of tbe mob. Void of Excitement. Wheeling, W. Va., June 7.—There wan not a ripple of excitement at the Wheeling creek mines, west of Bridge port, today, and no attempt to move coal waß made. A telegram today from President Mcßride, asking tbe miners to vacate tbeir camps and abandon all at tempts to hamper tbe road, was read to the miners, but had no visible effect. Situation Quiet. Pittsburg, Jnne 7.—lhe situation at McKeesport remains quiet. The only departure from thia rule waa rattier rough handling of a well dressed stranger who waa brought to the railroad itation tonight and bustled on tbe train and told to leave for Pittsburg. It was reported that a compromise was being arranged, whereby tbe men will return to work in a day or two, but tbe company officials declare tbat they will not reopen the works at present. Strikers Arrested. Peoria, 111., June 7.—Eight of the strikers were arrested and brought to this city. Tbeir friends arrived 'onight with a magistrate, for the purpose ol bailing them out, but found they had been taken to Pekin. There are now reports of trouble at the Kingston mines, but as there is no wire communication, it is impossible to verify it. No Violence Occurs. Sullivan, Ind., June 7.—No violence has occurred at Shelbutn or Farmers burg today, although a coal tra n of 30 cars passed here this evening. Tbe sec tion of the road between the two points was patrolled by the militia 10 prevent a repetition of the sururise of Tuesday. A Strikers' Parade. Scottdalb, Pa.. June 7 —Five thou sand striking coke workers paraded here today. Each carried a bunch et roses, which were deposited on the grave: of their fallen comrades. After this a large mass meeting was held. There waa no disturbance. The Strike Ended. Washington, Ind., Juae 7.—Tbe mine workers' strike is virtually ended so far as this section is concerned, and the miners will probably resume work Monday, as they have no grievance and only quit work to help the movement along. It Is a Fake. Wheeling, W. Va", Jane 7.—The re ported battle between aoldiere and miners at Mineral biding, where several deputies were reported killed, ia a fake pure and simple. COUNTERFEITERS. TWO SAN DIEGO MEN WHO MADE BOGUS hONEY. They Were Caught With a tot or Appll- Aoofl to Manufacture Couutei" felt Coloe anil Were Locked Up. Ban Diego, June 7.—0. E. Smith and Garland Baser of San Diego were ar rested by Constable Bludworth, aboul five miles north of OceauEide, today, ftey passed a bogus $5 piece on a rancher'B wife. After the capture, 21 bogus |5 pieces were found in tbe road, where they had thrown them. A num ber of counterfeit *l pieces were aleo f«....H tru„„ ——- moll -.-»» d, aud 1 drove two horses aud buggies and had two heavy satchels. They were brought to this city and held for examination in *500 bonds. After Saiith and Baker were in jail, Constable Bludworth turned the two valises over to District Attorney Ward, wbo opened them aud found a lot ot tools and appliances used in melting and moulding, including a crucible, spoons, burnisher, a complete electric battery, several gold rings with the plating removed by eleotric process, a bar of solder, two small bars of bullion silver, and other articles. The attorney retained for Smith and Baker appeared and demanded the valises and their con tents, but tbey were locked up in a sale and will be held for evidence. United States Marshal Oovarrubias waa notified oi the capture and he will probably remove tho prisoners from the jurisdiction of the state courts. In the meantime a sharp search is being made to secure other evidence. Smith, who is about 50 years oi age, is an old resident of ban Diego, having lived in the city and back country for 21 years. He is a miner, and made the strike in the Ella mine at Julian some months ago. He was also a foreman in the construction of the Sweetwaterdntn. He has home an excellent reputation as a man of perlect honeßty. His compan ion, BuKer, first came to the city six weeks ago, claiming tn come from Mc- Gregor, lowa. He became acquainted with Smith and proposed that they go in search of work, both being out of funds. Baker is a painter. Two Are Missing. Watertown, N. V., June 7. —A special to the Standard from Alexandria bay says: The steamer Ocean of the Mer chants' lino, on her regular trip west, collided with the barge Kent of the Og denbarg Coal company in tow of the tug Seymour, at 2 o'clock this morning, near Sister island, nve miles below Alexandria bay. It ia stated that the barge struck the Ocean upon ncr star board. She was immediately beached on the light house shore. Both barge and steamer went down. Tbe Ocean is a freight and passenger steamer and had on board about eight passengers. Two of the crew are missing and are supposed to have been kilted by the collision. The Oceau is owned by E. D. Mackay's Sons of Toronto. The steamer went down so rapidly that the passen gers were obliged to make al! possible baste to escape witb their lives, leaving their baggage, etc., behind. Sicilian Miners Starving. Borne. Jnne 7. —Signor Colojani, mem ber ol the chamber ot deputies, has writ ten to the Secolo, describing tbe condi tion of the mining population in Sicily, which he says is most desperate. Thirty thousand miners on tbe island are atarv ing and hopeless of any improvement. They are threatening to burn the crops on the various estates, and declare that, if tbey are condemned to die of hunger, Others shall share their lot.

The Constitution Modeled Upon Our Own. Her British Majesty's Jllnliter Rafales to Attend the Opening nf the Constitutional Convention at Honolulu. By the Associated Presi. Honolulu, May 31 (per steamsr Mari posa.viaSan Francisoo),luue 7. —The con stitutional convention met May 30. The ceremonies were very brief, and con sisted merely in an address outlining tbe work of the convention by President Dole. The British minister refused to attend the opening of tbe ceremonies, although invited. An adjournment was taken so that Decoration day might be celebrated. All the government troops turned out, and accompanied by Ad miral Walker's staff and a large detach ment of troops from the Philadelphia, marched to tbe cemetery. The steamer Osoalani returned Toes day from Neckar island, having raised the Hawaiian flag over the barren rock which is no u-e except as a possible resting place for tbe proposed cable. President Dole, in his address before tbe convention, outlined very fully the work it has to do, and stated clearly the reasons which had impelled a change of plans by tbe president and advisory council from annexation to the United States to tbe creation of an independent republic. He gave utterance also to this significant expression: Although tbe establishment of a fun damental law, which shall, as far as possible, provide for the safe and per manent administration of affairs upon the principles 01. a republican form of government, will be the paramount ob ject of your deliberation, the original purpose of the provisional government to negotiate a treaty ol political union with the great and friendly nation that lies nearest to us, must, I reßpectfully. submit, be as fully recognized by you as a vital policy ol tbe new republic as it has been for tbe provisional government. Copies ot tbe proposed new constitu tion are now obtainable, and several have been cent to San Francisco. The constitution is an exact model of the United Slates constitution and many o! its provia'.onß are taken bodily from some state constitutions. Its salient (eatures are the great powers invested in the executive, the limitations of the elective franchise, and the various pro visions designed to piano permanent con trol of the future republic iv the hands of its present guardians or successors wbo shall carry out their policy. For instance, denizens of Hawaii who supported ihe provisional government are entitled to vote or to sit in the Ben ate without impairing their citizenship in their native country. The president shall be elected by the legislature for a term of six years. All commissions is sued by the late monarchy or the pro visional government are declared to be vacated from September 1, 1804, when the republic shall be created. The "crown lands" are declared to have been heretofore and to be now the property of the Hawaiian government, free and clear from any trust and from all claims whatsoever upon tbe rents, issues aud profits thereof. They shall be sabjbct to alienation and other uses, as provided by law. No lottery shall be authorized in the republic, nor will tbe sale of lottery tickets be allowed. Government officers shall not take foreign employ meat. The first election of the legislature shall take place with in three months after the promulgation of the constitution. Upon the conven ing of the legislature, which shall he the third Wednesday in February, 1896, or may be at a special session before that time, the existence, power and au thority of the preseut advisory council are terminated, but until that time the council ahail continue to poßsesa its present powers. ALIEN INHKRITANCE9. A DeeleioD Wh oh Holds That They Aro Without Inheritable Blood. Chicago, June 7.—Judge Ewing ren dered a decision today which holds that a citizen of the United States cannot acquire title to real estate by inherit ance when the inheritance has to be traced back through aliun ancestry, for the reason that such alien ancestry is without inheritable blood, which is necessary to transmit an inheritance from one purson to another. The de cision is the first rendered npon this point under tbe preseut statu ti. of the state, and it is doubtful if a parallel de cision has been rendered in any state. Judge Ewing's decision waa rendered in the suit oi James Bearan against tbe Bisters of the late William Went, a naturalized Englishman. Ihe case in voluud $40,000 of real estate. BUBONIC PLAGUE. Great Precautions Being- Taken to Pre vent Its Introduction. San Francisco, June 7.—The health authorities of thia city are taking great precautions to prevent the introduction to this country of the bubonic p.ague now prevailing in some parts of China. All vessels arriving from affected ports will be thoroughly inspected and fumi gated, and if there ia a suspicion of dis ease on the vessel, it will bo quaran tined. Wants an Kleotrio Road. Rbdlands, June 7.—The city trustees have been asked to grant a franchise (or an electric car line covering 10 miles of city strseta. The company making the request is composed of local capittl ieta with an abundance of money to carry out their plana. THE MINNEAPOLIS. A Trip in Which the Big Crnlser Does Creditable Work. Philadelphia, June 7.—The new United Statea cruiser Minneapolis re turned at 6 o'clock tonight from her preliminary or builders' trial trip. The big cruiser acquitted herself most cred itably, proving the equal in every way, if not the superior of her sister ship, tbe Colombia. While it is true that the Minneapolis did not equal the record of 22 87 knots an hour made by the Co lumbia on her official trip, she did bet ter than her sister ship oa tbe prelim inary trial of the latter, the speed of tbe Minneapolis being 21.75 knots while the speed of the ColumOia was 20.08. This waa accomplished in spite of the fact that the new ship had to burn anthracite coal which is regarded as a handicap. As a result of this trial it is predicted that the Minneapolis will make at least 23 knots on her official trip. Early this morning anchor was weighed and she Bleauied straight to aea, a distance of about 50 miles. She then turned and at 10 o'clock started back for the breakwater again. Now she was under foiced draught. The sha't- were whirling around at the ra'e Oi 160 revolutions per minute. At 11:50 she uuiled up again at Cape Henlopen and Captain Sargent said she had made 21.75 knots an hour. Riverside Republican Convention.

KELLY IN A FIX. HE BREAKS UP HIS BOATS AT CAIRO. The Washington Trip Seems to Beoome Harder Kvery Day to the Aiffly nf the Com uiou weal. Cairo, 111., June 7.—Kelly thia morn ing broke up bis boats. The man apon wboee iarm he is camped haa ordered him to vacate at 6 o'clock tomorrow morning. He compromised by giving htm the lumber from his boatß for per miss on to Btay a day longer. His time will be out this evening, and specula tion Is rife as to what his next move will be. His army is in need of rations and many are reported sick. He has no tents and no transportation, and each hour makes the situation more critical. The quarantine against him ia very strict, and no one from hia army is al lowed to enter Cairo. Chicago, Juae 7.—Three hundred Commonweslers, comprising Poles, Bo hemians and Austrian*, started from here today today for Washington. The aggregation is commanded by Joseph Rybakoweki, who claims to be a Polish nobleman. Brighton, Col., June 7. —Twenty five of the Coxeyites, who set sail from Den ver, are missing, is a result of tneir boats upsetting. It is thought that about 20 are drowned. Dead bodies can be seen on sandbars and lodged in trees, but cannot be recovered. One of the men known to be dead came from Utah. Brighton, Col., June 7.—Seven boats of the Cosey fleet, which left Denver, were upset today aud several lives were lost. One body has b9en recovered. FBGsNO Olt AND JURY. They Ind let-Dr. rVateon on Acooant of the Star*, of the Alnnn. Fresno, June 7.—The grand jury made its linal report late this afternoon. It was a disappointment to those who ex pected that it would prove an interest ing document. It is almost as mild as milk and censure is very sparingly be stowed. No mention is made of Judge Harris. It was supposed that his friends and relatives on the jury would attempt to insert a clause in the report clearing him of indirect oharges in con nection with the MoWhirter tragedy, made by several witnesses at tbe last trial of Heath, but the majority were opposed to such a clause and when it came t .5 a vote it was defeated. Before making its final report the grand jury presented an indictment against Dr. C. P. V. Watson for per jury. Watson was a witness for the prosecution in the Heath case"hnd swore that Le had seen Heath running from the direction of McWhirter's residence a few minutes after the murder. Wat son stated tbat he recognized Heath be cause it was a moonlight night. The almanac shows that the moon set at 8:45 that night. Watson is in Los An geles. Sneriff Scott telegraphed down last night to the sheriff there to arrest him. DISTKLIICVKD. The Reported DUaeter to the Bear Not Credited. San Francisco, June 7.—No official information concerning Ihe reported dis aster to the United States revenue cutter Bear has beeu received here. One of the officers of the revenue cutter Rush says that private advices continu ing the report bave been received, but he states that it is impossible to tell the extent of the damage. Captain Healy'a son, who is in the city, says that no mention is made of tbe accident in c letter received by him from his mother, who is on the Bear with Captain Healy. He is of the opinion that the report originated from the fact that the coast survey steamer Patterson went ashore about three weeks ago 300 miles south of Sitka, out waa pulled off ' safely. Plenty nf Itullion. London, June 7.—The amount of bul lion that went into the R-tuk of England on balance today waa £607,000. THE WAR BEOUN. DELEGATES TO THE STATE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION CHO SEN - Mckinley wins i riij FIRST BOUT. PRICE FIVE CENTS . AN AWFUL HAIL STORM. Vienna Has 100.000 Windows Broken. The City Looks as if It Was Bombarded. Stones That Avei':ig;e the Size of hazel NutS. Thirty Soldiers Are Overtaken by the Squall and Thrown Insensi bls In a Field In Anatrla. By the Associated Preis. Vienna, Jane 7. —The worst hail storm thet ever visited this city commenced at 7 o'clock this morning. Dense cop per-colored clouds rose with alarming rapidity. The wind drove the dust in columns to the height ol four-story houses. Then the hail began to fall and covered the city in a short time to the depth of from six to eight inches. In leas than 15 minutes the city looked aa if it had been bombarded. It is esti mated that 100,000 windows were broken. Five hundred panes of glass were broken in the ministry of commetce building alone, and six hundred in the palace. In the upper floors of the emperor's wing of tbe palace hardly a pane re mains unbroken. Tbe hail stones averaged in size hazel nuts and decended in the streets with tremendous force. Three deaths are re ported as due to falling stones. Horses were frighteued by the storm and ran away, causing many accidents. Serious damage was done in a field outside of Vienna, where a detachment of artillery with 12 guns were overtaken. The horses bolted with fright in all di rections, and 30 soldiers were thrown helpless open the ground. Several of them were run over and one was kilted, and three officers wsre severely injured. The beautiful gardens of tbe city are ruined and telegraph and telephone poles were blown down, and the wires are stretched on the ground like huge cobwebs, causing death to thousands of birds. It is feared that great damage has been done to crops. Reports from Bressburg show that place was also visited by a disastrous hail storm, and the vineyards were almost ruined. Violent Btorme have occurred during the week at diffeient points, and im mense damage is reported to have been done. UNCONFIKHED, the Reported Wreck of the Bear Is Discredited. San Francisco, June 7. —Private ad vices received here are that the revenue cutter Bear ran on a rock in Sitka har bor, Alaska, on May 29th, and there ia no hope of getting her off. The rocka are sharp and it will be a question of time only when Bbc goes to pieces. No lives are reported lost. No advices have been received today confirming the report of the stranding of the revenue outter at the entrance to the harbor of Sitka, and those wbo know Captain Healy discredit the re port. Captain Niebaum of the Alaska Com mercial company dsclatea that he haa failed to find anything to confirm the report of tbe disaster. He thought that possibly the story of tbe mishap to the Patterson had been confounded with the Bear, but he believed Captain Healy was too good a navigator to lose his vessel at the entrance of such a harbor aa Sitka. At naval beadqaartera no dispatches had been received confirming or deny ing the report, aud Collector VViae could throw no light ou the situation. GIVBN FROTKOXION. Another International Complication Possible. Washington, June 7. —It is learned that the fugitive vice-presideat of San Salvador has been afforded an asylum on board the Bennington. In this case, though acting from the best ot mativei for the fugitive, who, had he been cap tured, would undoubtedly have been shot, Captain Thomas may have unwit tingly involved the United States in another international complication. It is hoped that no complaint will be made by the victorious Salvauoran party, which doubtless will be engrossed for some time with the erection of a new government; but if it does complain the state department will 1 c put to eoina straits to devise a consistent and satis factory reply. SBAJLKRS DISCOURAGED. A Number of Schooners Lost and Others Missing. San Francisco, June 7.—The latest news from tbe Japan coast is anything but encouraging to the sealers. In ad dition to the four veeselß known to have been lost, it is reported that there are six other sealing schooners which are missing. They are the schooners Mary H. Thomas, Alton, Rattler, Ban Diego, Unga and the Kate aud Ann. Not only have they not touched at Hakodate or Yokohama, but they have not been seen by any of the vessels which have put in there. The unibsing sealers all sailed trom San Francisco, and carry crewa numbering 108 men. Davis Nominated.
