REVOLT IN SCHOOLS. Nearly a Third of Pupils Absent on Account of Board Order. Hellingham, Oct. 11. —Out of a total enrollment of 35,31 pupils in the pub lic schools at Bellingham, 1,06} were absent from school yesterday. A large percentage of the absence of pupils is attributed to the refusal of parents to permit their children to be vaccinated. .Some two weeks ago the board of health made an order, upon recom mendation of tbe health officer, requir ing all children to be vaccinated or be prohibited tbe privilege of tbe public schools. The ordser was based upon the prev alence of smallpox in tbe city, but as there were few cases the publio re belled, deeming the order not justified under the circumstances. The board refused to rescind its ac tion and tbe senntiment of tbe public found expression in the absence from sohool of many children of parents not only who are adverse to having their children vaccinated under any circumstances, but of those who feel that the situation here is not one to justify the sweeping order of the board, even though its legality may not be questioned.

OCTOBER 1G 1900 FOR A BIG SUBSIDY BELUKGHAM CHAMBER OF COM MEBCE ANNOUNCES PLAN. Campaign to Begin tor the Purpose of Raising Bonus of 41,250,000 for Construction of a Railroad Trom Bellingham to Spokane Through Mount Baker District Bellingham. Oct. 13.—The Belling ham chamber of commerce has an nounced that it will tegin at once a campaign »o raise a subsidy of #1.250,- 000 for the construction of a railroad from Bellingham to Spcsane through the Mount Baker district and ' >kanog an country. The subsidy is to be in the shape of land within the city lim its, at current values. The matter has been under consideration for several weeks and substantial assurances have been offered. Ooe man, it is said, has agreed to give 100 ai:res of land and three or four others hive promised to make donations as large as the largest. Those back of the scheme believe it is entirely feasible and that it will re sult in the construction of the road. The plan has been greeted by a good deal of enthusiasm, since the proposed road offers the largest assurance of the city's greater commercial develop ment. It is believed here that Spo kane and tie towns in Okanosan coun ty will also offer large subsidies. There are two proposed routes for the road. One is up the north fork of the NooksacK and across the Cascades. The other is up the south fork through Skagit county, up Slate creek and across a low pass. The former route has been surveyed and the estimated cost is 18,000,000. The Bellingbam Bay & British Columbia road now ex tends along this route as far as Gla cier, 50 miUs from the city. It was the original plan to extend the road across the mountains, but the lack of funds has prevented. The bonus is proposed in the hope that it will en able the local company to make satis afctory arrangements for completing the project. SIR HENRY IRVING EXPIRES SUDDENLY London, Oct. 11—The English speak ing world has suffered an irreparable loss by the sudden death last night of Sir Henry Irving, who was universally regarded as the most rejiresentative English actor of contemporary times. Sir Henry died literally in harness. He was giving a series of farewell per formances in the English provinces, and this week was playing an engage ment at Bradford, appearing in several roles Thursday he presented "King Rene's Daughter" and "The Bells," and seemed to be in excellent health, taking the exhausting part of Matthias in the latter play with all the vigor of youth. Last night before an enthusiastic audience he portrayed one of bis most characteristically in tellectual parts, the title role in his own stage adaptation of Lord Tenny son's "Becket" with marked success. After the performance Sir Henry returned to the hotel, reaching his rooms at 11:80 o'clock, when it was observed that he was in great pain. Physicians were immediately sum moned, but before they could arrive Sir Henry bad expired without having uttered a word, in the presence of Bam Stocker, who bad been bis immediate manager for many years, and a few other intimate friends Worked to the Last. To the last moment of bis life, Sir Henry Irving's heart was in the work to which be had devoted his career— the raising of the standard of his art. On Wednesday he was entertained at lnncheon in tbe Bradford town hall, at which the mayor presented him an address from his admirers. In replying to the address, Sir Hen ry spoke of himself as one the sands of whose life were fast running out, but no one of those present bad the slight est idea that the end would come so soon. He proceeded in his reply to el oquently advocate tbe etsablisbment of theaters by municipalities, "because," be said, "I believe that by this means the standard of the true drama, as dis tinguished from miscellaneous enter tainments, would be successfully up held." Sir Henry Irving was born Keintoo, near Glastonbury Abbey, February 6, 1838, and was the son of a mine owner. His first appearance upon the stage was in 1857, in a provincial company. He appeared in London two years later, bat was not much thought of and re turned to the provisoes. Six years later he returned to London and made a hit, since whioh time his star has al ways been in ascendency. He was almost as familiar to Amer ioan audiences as to English, having been to this country many times. Last Boat for Nome. Seattle, Oot. 11.—The last of the Nome fleet to olear for the North for the season of 1906, steamship Ohio, of the White Star line, oast off from pier 4 shortly after 7 o'clock last eveniang, and headed for the ocean, followed by the well wishes of a crowd of people who had waited to see her sail or to bid goodby to friends who were aboard, going to spend the long winter. The Ohio oarvried 50 passengers and 1,800 tons of freight On her return trip she will be the last steamer to leave Nome and will stop in at Dutch Har bor on her way down. RUSSIA IN FERMENT SERIOUSNESS OF INTERNAL SIT UATION INCREASES. Throughout the Provinces Every body Is Arming for General Outbreak—ln Caucuses Revolu tlonlsts Have Declared War on Cossacks. Moscow, Oct 12.—The seriousness of the internal situation! ncraeees daily throughout the provinces. Evreybody is arming for a genreal eutbreak.

At the same time the czar's officers seized epxlosives in Northern and Central Russia and in Poland. Ia Caucasus the revolutionists have declared war on the Cossacks. Fram Tiifls there comes an account of the wholesale killing of people during a demonstration at the town hall. Among the slain was a Russia woman of rank who was tiring to help a little girl who had been wounded by sol diers. Eleven bombs were thrown in one day among Cossacks who were pa trolling Tiflis. The situation there is more alarming than ever before. At Moscow the municipality has re fused to receive any new regiments cf Cossacks because it has been proved that a great number of robberies have bees committed by Cossacks through out the country. TO LIMIT ACTIVITY. Cabinet Officials Not to rtake bo Many Political Speeches. Washington, Oct. 11.—At the meet ing of the cabinet yesterday informal but serious consideration was given to the subject of the participation of members of thee abinet in local cam paigns. The president let it be understood that, inasmuch as he had declined to be drawn into political controversies, be doubted the propriety of cabinet officers who are the representatives of the administration speakiflgin cam paigns in behalf of individual candi dates unless, indeed, their participa tion in campaignn work should oe con fined to their own states. In view of this discussion, although no definite decision was reached, it is quitep robable that with the exception of Secretary Shaw, who has made some definite arrangements, the members of the cabinet will confine their cam paign speaking to their own states. HUGHES DECLINES MAYORALTY. Says Duties in Insurance Investiga tion Are Paramount. New York, Oct. 11.—Charles E.

It is dealing with questions vital to the in terests of millions of our fellow oiti zens tbroughout,tbe land. It presents an opportunity for publio service sec ond to none and involves a 00-relative responsibility. This work commands all my energies. It is imperative that I continue in it. You have frankly recognized that I must continue unem barrassed and with unimpaired effi ciency. But it it entirely clear to me that this cannot oe if I accept tbe nomination."
