While the Situation Is Terr Tessa In
All Striking Districts, No Scene*
of Violence Occurred —Labor
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.
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
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
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

The Strike Ended.
Washington, Ind., Juae 7.—Tbe mine
workers' strike is virtually ended so far

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.

baste to escape witb their lives, leaving
their baggage, etc., behind.

The Constitution Modeled Upon Our
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

present powers.
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.

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
Early this morning anchor was

tion Is rife as to what his next move

hour makes the situation more critical.
The quarantine against him ia very
strict, and no one from hia army is al

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

The Reported DUaeter to the Bear Not
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.

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
the Reported Wreck of the Bear Is
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
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.
Another International Complication
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.
A Number of Schooners Lost and Others
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
