did tbe same with those held by ths members of the imperial family, after which the priest lighted the tapers of ail the mourners in turn, according to rank. ( All were kneeling and holding Siokerin • j ; tapers in their right hands, wbicb, with i I the clouds of incense, followed by the j ■ solemn chanting of the priests, gave a ! ' most weird effect to the whole seeue. At the conclusion of the funeral | service the mourners of the imperial ' family paid "their last respects to the dead czar, kissing the icon lying on hi . breast. Tbe czar assisted the czarina who was terribly effected. Eight generals then removed the pall j and carried the coffin to the altar, while i eight other generals bore the pall be hind the casket. Tbe czar then placed hia father's imperial mantle within the i coffin, which waa then tinallv closed I and tbe prooeasion to the tomb was formed. It was headed by the metro- : politan of St. Petersburg and tbe clergy I repeating a solemn chant. The clergy were followed by the coffin which was borne by the czar, the grand dukes, and the most distinguished gehe'rals. LOWERED INTO THE TOM TI. The most impressive ceremony was j the lowering of the czar's remains into, the vault, by high civil officers of the government. As the coffin disappeared | from view, tbe loud boom of cannon and the salvos fired by platoons of infantry from the forts reverberated through the church, mingling with the words of the burial service, and the hoiating of the imperial standard ou the fortress tower proclaimed ta the world outside that the last act in the mournful drama bad bean concluded. The czar bore tbe ordeal with fortitude, but many among tho group of imperial and royal personages clustered around the open grave were visibly affeoted. Tbe czar remained in the church until the tomb was finally closed. aVfter this last ceremony, ths imperial insignia were carried back in state, in a number of carriages, to the winter pal ace, and were deposited in their accus tomed place in St. George's hall.

Astoria, Or., Nov. 19.—The British bark Swanmore, 1731 tuna, iu ballast, 21 days irooi San Franciaco, arrived at 1:30 this afternoon. Captain Green baum has an interesting story to tell of the narrow escape of his vessel from go ing ashore near Cape Falcon or False Tillamook, early yesterday morning. The Swanmore arrived oil' the lightship about 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon, and, finding no tug or pilot, stood oil' to the southward, a wind having sprung up from the northeast. liarly Sunday morning the wind died away and the .iwanmore found herself enveloped in a thick fog, aud, being un able to locate her bearings, was com pletely lust until the crew were startled to hear a noiae that alwavs caueea the sailors' blood to run cold —the roaring oi the breakers on the beach. The anchor was at once dropped and 35 fathoms of chain run out. Here they remained until 8:30, when a light, off-shore wind sprung up and the bark's anchor wae slipped. They stood directly off shore for about eight miles and tbe wind agaiu failed them, Again the vessel drifted toward tbe breakers, aud their dull, roaring Bound was plainly uudible, when a second breeze sprung up and the Swnnmoro was headed toward the open sea. By this time the fog bad lifted and the crew of the Swanmore could easily dis tinguish the rugged and perpendicular cliff of Cape Falcon. At i o'clock tbey were nearly eight miles off' shore, when they were again bscaluied aud com menced drifting shoreward. Nearer and nearer the treacherous land swell car ried them, until the barn passed over the first line of breakers, directly off the worst part of tbe rueged headland. Sbe was drifting slowly aahore and the boats were already tilled with the ef fects of the crew, ready the moment the vessel Btruck to clear away and attempt to get to shore through the surf. Assistance was at hand, however, for the little steam coaster Harrison loomed up to the south. They baa evidently liotiued the .Swanmore's eignals of dia~ trees, for they were bearing down on her under a full head of steam. They were inside tbe second line of tumbling breakers and dangerously near the third when the Harriaon managed to get hold of a steel hawser from tbe veeael. By this time tbe roar of the breakers was deafening, and the swell v.v.q running sborewards with terrible force, and when the line was pulled taut, and tbe little Bteamer started with her heavy tow, her bits were nearly torn from her deck. It waB a long and hard atruiiirle at first, hut the Harrison finally cut the bark free from tbe break ers, and towing her fully 10 miles off shore, dropped tier. This mornin ? she wasoppoBite the mouth of the river and wru picked up by a tug aud brought in side. Captain Hchrader, of tho Harri son, claims that no bargain wa-t made; in fact, there wp.s no time for etr u.ng bargains. On the oilier hand, Captain Grscubauiu, of the fewanuiure, claims that a bargain was mc.da ior the sum of 1600. ILOS ANGELES HERALD TUESDAY MORNTNG, NOVEMBER 20, 1894, BENSON LAND CASES.

Howard, as he was known in this city, got into trouble here lutt summer by selling a stock of drugs on which there was a shortage. Late tonight Chief Harrigan decided to talk concerning Howe'a arrest and tbe part he had iv unearthing the plot to defraud tha Philadelphia concern. Said he: "Marion C. lisdgpeth, the famous Glendale, Mo,, trainrobber, now a prisoner iv the city jail, has told me of Howe's effortß to smuggle him keys and tools on various occasions to aid him in his attempts to escape. Howe is a brother of McDonald's partner and McDonald ia Hedgpeth'd attorney. "The first information I had was from Hedgpetb. His letter to me and the statement that followed, written by bim at my request, tell tbe story of the discovery of the plot. They are as fol lows : October 19, 1894. Major Lawrence Hnrrigiin, Chief 01 Police. Dear Sir: —There has been a $10,000 swindle worked upon a Philadelphia life insurance company and possibly a mur der committed iv working it. Seventy-rive hundred dollars of the money has already been paid and $2500 is yet in bunk, owing to a iquabble over the fee that Howe is wanting for his part in it. I can give some interesting information regarding it, and perhaps save the insurance com pany something ii they are notified at once. [Signed.] Marion C. HeduPhth. J. 0. Armstrong, a jail guard, iv a statement, also in possession of Chief of Police liurrigan, deposed that ho was approached by J. D. Howe for the pur pose of getting hiss assistance in secur ing liedgpeth's escape. The statement of Hedgpeth, before mentioned by Chief Harrigan, is as follows: "When H. M. Howard wbs here come two mouths ago, be told me he would like to talk to me. After we gut ac quainted he told mo ha had a scheme by which he could make $10,0i>0 aud that tio needed some lawyer who could be trusted, and said if I could introduce him to one he would give-me $.S(JU for so doing. He told that Pitzei's life was insured for $10,OUO; that Pitzel aud he were going to work the insurance company for tbat eurc. He told me how they were going to do it. He Baid he wbb an expert at it and that he had worked it before, and that, being a drugmitt, he could easily de ceive the insurance company by having Pifzsi fix himself up according to his direction and make it appear that he was mortally wounded by an explosion, and then put a corpse in the place of Pitzsl's body and have it identified aa tbat of Pitzsl. In a few days Mr. Howe came to me and told me that Howard had been to him ani introduced himself, saying I tecom mended him and that he (Howard) had laid the whole plot open to bim. Howe told me that he would eeo tbat I got my |500 if it worked, und that Howard was going on east ut once to attend to it. "Howe told me it was the Fidelity Mutual of Philadelphia. When notices appeared in the newspapers of Pitzei's death, Howe came down at once and told me it was only a matter of a few days until we got the money. Later Howe and a little girl—l think it was Pitzei'e daughter—succeeded in having the body recognized and identified as that of li. F. Pitzsl. ' Howe told me that Pitzei's wife wee privy to the whole thing. He says now that Howard would not let Mra. Pitzel go to Philadelphia to identify the body of her husband, aud that he (Howe) feels almost cat tain that Howard de ceived i'iizsl, and that Pitzel, in following Howard's instructions, was killed, and that it was really the body of Pitzel; that the policy was made out to the wife, and when tbe money was put into the hank, Howard sopped it and left the wife to settle with Howe for bis nerviees. She was willing to pay him ; 100,1, but he wanted 12000 Soss!soo is hold until they get through squabbling over it. "It is hardly worth while to say that I never got tbe $500. Thii, and a lot more, I will swear to. "Yours respectfully. M. C. H." On this information Howe was arrested this morning. After receiving tbis communication Chief Harrigan said he wrote the chief of police of Philadelphia, with the results already known. Al> S I'll A I.IAN G()|, D FIELDS. Valuable Bint* to American Miners Conoarnlap; Than, Washington, Nov. 19, —Very timely, in view of the great rush of prospectors from all quarters of tbe globe to the newly discovered gold mines of Aus tralia, iB an exhaustive report to the state department, just published, from Uuited States Consul-General Marratta at Melbourne. He baa been besieged with letters of inquiry from residents of California, Colorado, Nevada and other western mining states, asking his advice about going to Australia, and takes thia method of answering inquiries. The report is very instructive and goes so fur into details as to induce a set of very practical suggestions drawn up by the Australian minister of miusß, for the guidance of people unused to dig ging for gold, showing where and how it is to be looked for, anU to aid those miners who want,to get a little gold lor eubstatence aa quickly aa possible in easily worked ground. But the kernel of the report is in the following para- I graph: "There is a good oppoitunity for min ers from the United States well versed in tbe best methods of obtaining gold, : but it is absolutely necessary that they come well provided with both funds and experience, with sufficient of the former to last them at least six months, irrespective of what ; gold they may obtain. The machinery ' and aupliances iv vogue here are '■ not altogether of the latest and best; iv many cases they are quite old-fashioned. If some of our large manufacturers of mining machin ery and appliauces would send repre sentatives out to this colony it would, in my opinion, well repay them." THE MOQUI DIFFICULTY. CAPTAIN WILLIAMS' REPORT ON THE TROUBLE. Governor Solomal Daatre* to Adopt the Cuatoin* «r tha White* bat the Majority or tlio Tribe Objoot to It. Denver, Nov. 20.—Captain Constant Williams of the Seventh infantry has forwarded to the headquarters of the department of Colorado the particulars of tne trouble with the Moqui Indians. The Moqui Indians are few In number and dwell in the mountains of Arizona ■ about 100 mileß from Fort Wingate, the ! nearest military post. The; are a peace' ful and industrious tribe, but ignorant of all matters outside their awn little villages. It is even said that they be lieve they are the only people in tbe world, witb tbe exception of tbe four companies of United Statea cavalry that appeared on tbe oooaaion of their late i outbreak. I Governor Solomal obtained some pro ! giessive ideas from a visit to Washing ' ton with two other Moquis about 10 ; years ago. On his return be described j the immense number of people, the rail roads and gigantic buildings he had seen. The Indians thinking hs was crazy placed him in confinement for some time. Solomal has never aban doned his desire for reform, and has gathered about him followers tbat com* prise about one-third of the Moquit. i Captain Williams, to ascertain the canse :of the disturbance, visited tbe villages, ' and found tbat it arose from a second j attempt of Solomal to adopt the customs i of the palefaces. A meeting of tbe two factions was held in the square of the village, and the chiefs of the contending factions Btated their cases. Governor Solomal Baid he ! wanted bis cbildren to go to school and i be brought up as the white cbildren are. ! When he and the others had done, the ! hostiles had raised objections, bad seized some of their corn fields and ' threatened to seize others. They bad ' even gone so far aa to threaten to expel i them from tbe town. So Solomal bad I asked for the cavalry to be sent. I Tbe hostiles numbered about two | thirds of the tribe, and tbey were led by i one Lomahungyoma. They were op i posed to progress of any kind and want |ed to follow in the steps of tbeir fore* fathers. After Solomal bad finished bis j speech their chief rose to reply. He j substantially admitted the truth of Sol ! omai'e statementa, saying tbat his fol ! lowors did not want to be civilized, nor ! have their children go to school or jto wear white man's clothing or to eat : white man's goods. They had seized the tields at Mosncnpee because tbey bad belonged to them in former years and had been unlawfully taken away. In the spring be intended to take away more of the fields of tbe followers of Solomal. He also said the difficulty could be settled in no otner way than by the coming of United States troops. Therefore Captain Williams eaid he i had deemed it necessary to ask for two troops of ths United states cavalry to be Bent tbere. It is believed tbat the trouble will be over in a few days, but it will take some time for tbe news to arrive, as the Indians are at a consider able distance from any town. Army officers say tbat they are the most religious people in tne world, hon orable and npright in all tbeir dealings. Tbey speak a language of tbeir own, but each separate village has a dialect whioh they alone understand. DISEASED OYSTERS. The Caais of a Typhoid Epidemic at „ New Haveo.
