BA\ IRAGJORGENS AND W-,B. KENNEY, STAFF CORRE-SP PRISE ASSOCIATION. TELLS O ? . . CRIPPLE CREEK DISTRICT I MILITARY EXPEDITIONS W ON THE HUNT O -^.DEPORT THE HARMLESS ONES TRIAL," IS THE ORDER OF GE ALLIANCE HAS COMPLETE ( AND THE MEMBERS SAY N< MAIN IN TELLE CRIPPLE CREEK. Col., June 10.? ^Bayonets ruled in Teller county last tnight. Civil government is suspended and the only law recognized is the law of might. The law is of the Krag-Jorgensen and the Winchester. Two military expeditions went into The mountains yesterday. One was to the Portland mine, the only union mine in the vicinity. It employed 500 inert- They contributed heavily to the strike fund. General Bell de eided to close this mine down because he said: ""These men in the Portland mine have been harboring lawless men. It is a menace iu me liea^c m the community." So he sent one -company of Infantry over to it. Man--ager Thomas hoisted the United ^States flag. Bell brought his command to a halt, saluted the stars anil -stripes and Thomas surrendered the - mine. Under protest the manager ^stopped and one hundred deputies were left to guard it. The men were told they could return to worlc when they left their union. His next step was to order all union men out ' f the district. General Bell's second -expedition made up of infantry and "deputies marched to Gillette late yesterday afternoon to arrest some ^strikers. I accompanied them. The expedition was divided into three sections and to prevent careless deputies or soldiers from firing on correspondents tied bands of white ribbon on the newspaper men's arms. "When three miles from the scene one opened fire on our detachment. There were two reports; soldiers claimed that the shots were from "Winchesters using smokeless powder. There were two revolvers used "too as puffs of smoke could be seen rising from two high boulders. The deputies and the soldiers deployed in open formation answered the fire and -a detail charged upon the mountain .-side. This put an end to the attack One man was seen to plunge out from behind a scrub oak as though fait, then he disappeared. The soldiers searched but could not find him. They did find a rifle, hater the dead hotly of a man was found shot through the head. The firing party did not seem to respect the whole bandages and as these ribbons appeared to draw fire they were removed. The party was in little or no danger on account of the elevation. General J. Bell explained that shooting from such heights the marksman had only our heads to aim at. Even then the whizzing of the projectiles was not the most pleasing sensation in the world. The Geneva convention should "have recognized the white hand's -scheme. At Gillette about twenty-five strikers were rounded up and brought to the Cripple Creek bullpen. Fifty-seven strikers are in this bull-pen. It is the flood of the stock exchange. A dozen armed guards sit in the balcony, with riot guns in hands. The mountain jail holds about two hundred men. At Victor about two hundred more are in the bull-pen and squads of soldiers and deputies are bringing in more every hour. Twice in two days carloads of -these men were sent to Denver. "Deport the harmless ones and hold the traitors for trial," is General Bell's terse order. The Editor Kyner. of the Victor Record, whose plant was wrecked, has arranged with the Cripple Crek Star to have his paper issued from that office. The citizens alliance, it is said, notified the "Star" that if this, was done the "Star" would be wrecked. The Star people decline to discuss this rumor. The Citizen's Alliance is running the district.. Its membership in'cludes the best people of the town, 1 ON WINCHESTERS IN USE ONDENT OF THE NEWS ENTERF THRILLING SCENES IN THE . .

MAUDE JONES COMES IN FOR NOTORIETY ONCE MORE?SHE VISITED THE ROOM OF HER LOVER THIS MORNING. Maude Jones, she of suicide fame, did a village cut-up act to-day noon, which came near resulting in her incarceration on a disorderly charge. People who saw her this morning say that she was drinking some, which may account for her actions, while others say she isn't right. Just after dinner she entered a local hotel unobserved by the proprietor or clerk, and proceeded to the room occupied by her one time lover. In her efforts to convince him that she is his proper mate and that temporal hippiness for him consists of legal cohabitation with her, she cursed and yelled and shrieked until all efforts to quiet her were futile, and at that stage of the game Chief Morgan and Assistant Bartholow were called in. Even their presence was unavailing. Chief Morgan toon a-siv^u mc tor if he desired her taken away, but the landlord thought she could be quieted without such stringent methods and proceeded, with the help of the female force of the hostelry, to soothe her wounded feelings. This course proved to be the correct one. and Maude soon came back to earth. knoTchosen ATTORNEY GENERAL OF UNITED STATES WILL SUCCEED QUAY IN SENATE. PHILADELPHIA. Pa., June 10.? Philander C.

The residents of the old fire-trap a." the corner 01 Locust avenue and Barney street had quite a scare yes. terday afternoon. A woman residing; on the second floor opened the ballroom door and discovered, that the place was fill! of smoke. Thinking the house was on fire she immediately gave an alarm, which was answered by the fire department and a large crowd of would-be spectators. No fire was found, but Chief Reed ascertained that the fire from the boiler in the feed' mill, which Is located in the basement, fails directly in the sewer, so that when the fireman drew his fire about 4:30 the smoke permeated the sewc-i system ail over the building. i AT THE COURT H0US| YANERO'S CASE DISMISSED. Sufficient Long Green Was Put Up to End the Court Proceedings. About 25 Italians gathered in Justice Amos' office last evening for, the trial of Tony Yanero. the Italian who was arrested for illegal selling down along the Barnesville road It is claimed that Tony is a pretty- good sort of a .man and that one of his neighbors got angry with him and i had him arrested. Now it may be so that he did sell intoxicants but so long as he confines his t-ade to his re J low countrymen ujiu uum ate a disturbance, not much can be done with him. This time,, however he was arrested. The defendant had secured the services of Attorney Kirbv and Attorney Morgan was there for the State, but after considerable jabbering among these imports from the Mediterranean, the prosecuting witness asked to withdraw the complaint. He was told to pay the costs but as soon as the amount was announced one of his countrymen produced the greenbacks and the case was dismissed. Fiduciary. C. E.

THE WORK OF THE FIRE IS BEING OVERCOME BY THE MILLER-CLARK COMPANY AND BY SEPTEMBER 1 THE ELEVATORS WILL BE IN OPERATION. Work is progressing: rapidly on the foundation of the new Miller-Clark grain elevkors. The brick work will bo completed this week and the carpenters will go to work. It is I he intention to have the works in operation by September 1. Great precaution will be taken in the construction against fire. The warehouse will be separated from the machinery room by a thick fire wall, so that if one burns the other can be saved. The main building will not be built so high as the one which burned, but will cover a great deal more ground. The machinery has been shipped and as soon as the roof is on the machinists will begin setting it up. Although the old plant was one of the best in the State, this one will he better. It will contain a 150-barrel flour mill and a fancy meal plant. This will be an increase in the dailyproduction of flour of from 50 to To barrels per day. The meal plant will produce the best in the State. We were all sorry to see this plant destroyed, but we are indeed glad to see it being reconstructed so rapidly.
