oepted as superseding the civil authori ties by the military power. The events of today were the death of another of the wounded, Jacob Toma shanto, the 18-year-old boy who wasshot through the head; the announcement this afternoon by the physicians that six more will die, several perhaps before morning, and the funeral of four of the victims. These were Andrew Turek. Steve Yureich, John Futa and Mike Cheslek. Ten more will be burled to morrow, and here the trouble is likely to occur. It has been arranged that the ten coffins shall be carried on the shoul ders of the strikers from the undertak er's shop to the front of St. Joseph's church. In front of the church a plat form is to be erected on which the ten coffins will be placed. Then addresses ln Polish, Lithuranian and English are to be made by priests and others. The bodies will be carried in side and pon tifical high mass 1 will be celebrated. After the services the procession will go to the Polish cemetery, where eight of the coffins, those containing Poles, will be placed in one large grave. It is the pur pose to acquire by subscription sufficient funds to erect over these a monument bearing the names of the victims and a brief history of the event. Seventeen societies, all but one made up of Poles, Hungarians and others of the Slav races, and one of Irish are to march ln the funeral procession. If General Gobin executes the Inten tion he expressed tonight this whole program will be upset, and it is feared that the men will resent any Interfer ence with the disposition of their dead. Dr. H. P. Lewandowskl o£ New York, representing the Polish societies o£ that city, arrived here today. He is em- to assist the strikers in every possible way to help them to gain their demands from the operators and to ar range for the prosecution of the sheriff and deputies. He said he had. received word that a check for $1000 from the National Polish Alliance, which re cently met In Philadelphia, hasbeen sent •a for the aid of the miners and that he has promises of large additional sub scriptions from New York and other cities. FRIDAY'S BUTCHERY He obtained affidavits from a number of the miners who were in Friday's af fair which throws some new tight on the shooting. They declare in substance that on the morning of that day a mes senger arrived at Harwood ar.d asked the foreigners to come to Latimer, as the employes of colliery No. 1 at that place were about to strike. Later a second message to the same effect arrived and then the men started out to Latimer. At Hazel colliery, so the affidavits continue, Sheriff Martin met them and warned them not to go through Hazleton, but to go around the other way. They did so, but arriving at the fatal bend in the road near Latimer they again found themselves confronted by the sheriff, this time backed up by an army of dep uties. As soon as they reached the spot, it Is declared, Sheriff Martin stepped out and roughly grabbed the foremost man by the coat collar. With his other hand he thrust a revolver into his face and used abusive language. The miner knocked the sheriff's revolver from in front of his face and tried to wrench himself from the official's grasp. Almost instantly, tiie affidavit says, the order to fire was given. The deputies were lined up in a hollow square, the fourth side of which was formed by the body of strik ers. This would possibly account for the tact that so many were shot in the back and side. In the office of the Lehigh Traction company is a brown cutaway coat which one of the men now dead wore on Friday last. There are three bullet holes in it. In an. inside pocket was found a cheap nickel 38-callber bulldog revolver. This had not been used in the riot, because the chambers contained neither empty nor loaded shells, and it could not have been fired before the man was shot, be cause he would have had no time to un load it. It is established that this is the only weapon, found ln the whole mob of miners and the conditions indicate that the flrst shot could not have been flred from their side. There were three companies of deputies and one of these made up of men who have served as mine police ln the past, and had much trouble with the strikers on previous oc casions and were said to be in a revenge ful mood against them. All was quiet in the camp throughout the day, several of the troops, including the city troops of Philadelphia and the governor's troops, taking practice drills. AT THE CAPITOL HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 12.—The executive mansion has' been the scene of much activity during the last twenty four hours. Governor Hastings, Attor ney General McCormick, Major General Snowden, Adjutant General Stewart and Private Secretary Beitler have been on duty almost constantly. A corps of messenger boys Is stationed In the par lor to carry messages from the governor to the telegraph office and the headquar ters of the national guard. Major General Snowden will remain at the mansion until after the funeral of the victims tomorrow. No further trou ble is anticipated, but the governor has required the major general to remain here over tomorrow in ease of an emerg ency requiring his presence. Generals Snowden ar.d Stewart may t/lsit the soldiers' camp after the funera!. General Snowden is &o well pleased with the admirable manner in which the troops are being handled by General Go bin that he will not interfere with his plans. The general telegraphs that there was no trouble and that he did not look for any outbreak. Gen. Gobin will keep a close watch on the funerals and Will prepare to suppress-any disorders. Should the miners and operators ad- Just their differences at Tuesday's con ference, the troops, with ihe exception of ■ battalion, of infantry and a troop of cavalry, will be withdrawn. The flrst brigade is still held in readiness, but it ll thought here that all danger of an other outbreak is passed and no more troops will be needed. Governor Hastings has abandoned his visit to the Blue mourtainsand will stay here until the troops are withdrawn. Clement Plopstack, one of the strikers who was injured in Friday's riot, died late tonight, making the twenty-third death. During the day rumors were current that the deputies had left .town.

LONDON MARKETS Silver Bank Reserve Announcement Bouses Wild Protest LONDON, Sept. 12.—The announce ment that the Bank of England had de cided to hold one-fifth of its reserve in silver has greatly astonished financial circles and aroused a storm of protest Heretofore little attention has been given in England to Senator Wolcott's work and the present rumor would not be believed unless the Times had given it currency. As a matter of fact, the low tide of silver makes the opposition stronger. The possibility of an advanced bank rate has agitated the market somewhat, but the movement is again delayed, al though the Bar.k of Germany has raised the rate to 4 per cent. The weakness of the New York exchange Is interpreted as foreshadowing gold movements. Sil ver, however, is somewhat firmer on ac count of the demand and has advanced to per ounce. Stocks are fairly firm, with American railroads again the leading feature and a considerable increase in business on London account. It is thought signifi cant that selling from the continent has practically ceased. The Milwaukee divi dend and the publication of reports of heavy traffic are potent factors ln the situation. Tbe following stocks show an advance: Norfolk preferred, %; Atchison gold, 14'; Atchison preferred, %\ Pennsylvania, New York Central, %; Southern Pacific, Vs and Missouri and Kansas, 114. Tho following show a decline: Baltimore and Ohio, %; Union Pacific, % per cent. Home railways are firmer on the strength of good traffic receipts and are in demand. Grand Trunk advanced 1%; Guaranteed, %; seconds and thirds, %, while Canadian Pacific advanced ii. Spanish bonds fell off % as the result of unfavorable reports from Cuba. The tone of the mining market is un changed, though Kaffirs show some Im provement.

From accounts of the new district brought down on the schooner South Coast, it seems that the new diggings will rival even the famed Bonanza and El Dorado.

BRITISH HELP is Heartily Welcomed by Chandler REPUBLICANS' ENTHUSIASM _ MOST EARNESTLY INVITED TO UNCORK ITSELF New Hampshire's Senator Willing to See the Tariff Sidetracked in the Interest of Silver Associated Press Special Wire. BOSTON, Sept. 12,-Senator Wm. F. j Chandler of New Hampshire has given i tne following letter to the Associated Press: "I appeal to all Republicans to meet ! with Joyous enthusiasm the first step ; England may take toward bimetallism. The movement earnestly and zealously begun by President McKinley, in obe dience to the St. Louis platform, was quickly Joined by the French ministry, and the joint proposals are being care fully and seriously considered by the British cabinet, with a prospect that | England will reopen, her Indian mints, will use silver as part of her bank re serve and otherwise cordially aid in re monetization. Every such indication should arouse friendly feelings in the United States, four-fifths of whose peo ple, as well as nine-tenths of the people jof India, desire a bimetallic system, which so much depends upon England's i help. This is no time for discriminat ing duties or denunciatory demonstra tions against any European country, nor should bankers alone assume to voice the sentiment. I entreat bimetal lists everywhere to make themselves heard against the selfish outcries of the engorged money leaders of New York and Chicago and their subservient news papers." THAT BANK RESERVE LONDON, Sept. 12.—Henry R. Green field, director of the Bank of England and a former governor, has a letter in the Times this morning in the course of which he says: "As a bimetalllst and as one of the senior members of the bank court, I think I have a right to ask on what ground the writer of the article entitled 'A Remonstrance,' in your Saturday is sue, makes his assertion that the bank has decidede to hold a fifth of its re serve in silver. Had the bank done so, its action would have been strictly lr accordance with the bank act of 1844 and equally in accordance with the action taken in 1881 by the government, then presided over by a monometallism' Mr. Gladstone. What the bank did in 1881 was to assure the treasury that the bank would always be open to the pur chase of silver on condition of the return of the mints of other countries to such rules as would insure certainty of con- g O I,J l„ to BJlvf r Or,* r,t practical result oi a double standard in France alone, was that the two metals did exchange throughout the world at a legal ratio or with such slight variation as might in consideration of this great subject be neglected. There is no ground for saying that anyone concerned with the bank has officially gone beyond that position. Indeed, I doubt if any opinion has been recorded or any determination come to at all. Your correspondent's whole letter seems founded on a suppo sition of what may or may not have arisen in the necessary preliminary dis cussions with regard to the maintain ing of the bank's reserve on the condi tions mentioned. If lam not mistaken, the very persons who deprecate this di lution have always been most desirous of a much greater dilution by the Issue .of pound notes on. a more or less fiduci ary basis. I may conclude by saying that the expression, 'Certain Ameri cans,' is scarcely a fitting description of the commissioners now officially cred ited by their government for their diffi cult and onerous task." MEXICAN POLICY CITY OF MEXICO, Sept. 12.—1t Is not believed that the president will, ln his message, announce any radical change in the public policy. The manufactur ing and agricultural lnterests are unan imously in favor of'the silver standard.

STOLE A RIDE Toward a Town Where Work Was Plenty THIRTEEN IN THE COMPANY AND EVERY MAN IS KILLED OB WOUNDED A Broken Truck Ditches a Freight Train and the Whole Party Is Crushed Associated Press Special Wire. MEMPHIS, Term., Sept. 12.—A special to the Commercial-Appeal from Han burn, Ark., says: A most disastrous freight wreck occurred on the Iron Mountain road at Hanson, I. T, a small station twenty miles west of Van Buren, at 2 oclock today, resulting in the death of seven men and the eerious injury of six others, two of whom will die. The dead: WILL FAME. CHARLES FAME. DOUGLASS ANDERSON. JOHN JOHNSON. BOSS HENDERSON. FRANK HAMILTON. H. A. WALTON. The injured: GEORGE HOFFMAN. JACK JONES. JAMES P. PHILLIPS. ROBERT EUBANKS. CHARLES PENDER. GEORGE PARKER. Of the wounded it is thought that two will die, as they suffered internal inju ries. All of the dead and wounded were sent to Vian with the exception of Wal ton's body, it being brought to this place, where he has relatives living. None of the trainmen were hurt. While the train was running at a speed of twenty miles an hour the forward trucks of one of the cars near the engine broke, wrecking fifteen cars loaded with walnut logs and baled hay. With tha exception of two cars In front and three in the rear, including the caboose, every car of the twenty in the traiin was ditched. In the middle of the train was a car loaded with heavy machinery, and it was in this car that thirteen men were stealing a ride and from which seven dead and six seriously wounded were taken by the trainmen shortly after wards. It appears that the occupants ot the wrecked car were a party of men and boys living at Vian, who were coming to Van Buren to find employment In tha cotton fields. When the machinery car left the rails It fell on its side, nearly all of the men being caught by the heavy beams. SAD SCENES KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 12. —A special to the Times from Hanburn, Ark, says: Many sad scenes were enacted at Han son. One of the dead, whol name Is un and mangled ln a horribleVanner. Two of the dead were brothers, Will and Charles Fain. Will was found on one side of the track and Charles on the other, both crushed almost out of all semblance of human beings. The scenes at Vian, when, the dead bodies of those who had resided, there arrived, were affecting in the extreme. The parents and other kin of the de ceased were at the depot when the train came It will probably be sevetal days before the wreck will have been cleared and the full extent of the disaster revealed. Three men are still missing according to the statements of some of those who escaped. A large force of men are at the spot clearing away the wreckage. The Polish Question ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 12.—1t is the general opinion, reflected in the press of St, Petersburg and of Warsaw, that the visit or Emperor Nicholas to the latter city has sensibly diminished ill feeling and paved the way for a reconciliation with the old Poles. The moderate policy of the new governor of Warsaw, Prince Imeritlnsky, also assists in the same di rection. The emperor has instructed the governor to continue to eliminate from the publicserviceall officials whoss word or act obstructs the work of pacifi cation.
