Killed. ; San Antonio, Tex., June 19. Mews of a desperate fight between three women in Jack county has reached here. The participants in the fight were Mrs. Julia Bowers and daughter, and Mrs. John Walker, a neighbor. A feud has existed between the two families for some time, and on Monday night Mrs. Bowers and her 17-year-old daugh ter went to the house or Mrs. Walker for the purpose of whipping her. They entered the house and began the attack, but Mrs. Walker succeeded in gaining possession of a loaded shotgun, which she attempted to discharge at her assailants. In the scuffle for the posses sion of the gun which ensued, the weapon was discharged, and the load of shot took effect in the breast of Mrs. Bowers' daughter, causing . instant death. ' - ' - P00RMELA1 Not the Ex-Presfdent but City on the Lake. the Fuel and Grub Both Scarce in the Forest City A a Result of the Switchmen's Strike. Only Passenger and Mall Train. Uuii nlng Six Hundred Men Out If Main tained It Will Affect Thousands of Other Workman Other Labor New. - THREATENED WITH FAMINE. Cleveland Shut Off from the World by the Switchmen'. Strike. Cleveland, June 19. Every railroad in Cleveland is "tied up," and the wheels of the passenger and mail trains are the only ones turning. It was said that the switchmen at Erie. Dunkirk, Buffalo and every other point on the Eastern division of the Lake Shore road were only waiting for the word from Cleve land to join in the strike. Six Jiundred men are out. ? The effects of the "tie-np" are begin- ning to be felt by the business men and manufacturers of the city. The manu facturing establishments, it is said, are short of fuel, and it has been impossible to supply coal in quantity to meet any thing like the demands since the strike began. If coal is not delivered to the Cleveland turning Mill company at once it is said the mills at Newburg will be shut down. Other industrial plants will also lie closed in a day or two un less the "tie-up" is untied. The railroad officials claim that the strike if successfully maintained will throw fully 20,000 working people tem porarily out of employment. It is now the evidentintention of the railroads to hold out against the switchmen and to place new men upon the "ponies" in the yards. Some of the railroad officials seem to think the union men will return to work if they are protected from vio lence, but. as a matter of fact, it is now too ;late for that. The members of the Switchmen s association were forced to strike, they themselves say, but being in they now propose to stand out with the others. The yards are . blocked with freight cars, and only a few through freight trains have been sent out, and these con tained merchandise and perishable freight. The switchmen not only have refused to interfere with passenger trains, but have provided that" crews of brakeman and conductors shall be left on duty on each road to make up these trains. Fresh meat is also scarce, and there promises to be a food and fuel famine if trains are not soon moved. The mayor is out with a proclamation demanding good order, but trouble is feared. Federated Railway Employes. Chicago, June 19. The supreme council of the Federated Railway Em ployes, which included the Brotherhood or conductors ana urakemen and n ire- men and Switchmen s associations. which was in session at the Grand Pa cific hotel Monday and Tim-day ad journed Tuesday evening.

It is known, however, that they endorsed the recently organ ized Brotherhood of Telegraphers, and it is understood that the latter will be admitted to the federation at their next meeting in October. Bricklayer.' Strike. Cincinnati, June 19. The bricklav- erB, 370 in number, have gone out on a strike. This is only a beginning of a general strike to be inaugurated by all the building trades, and which will make idle 10,000 men. This action by the bricklayers waa taken at a mass meeting of Unions No. 1 and 118. Owing to the principle involved, it was resolved to lay down their tools until the trouble between the carpenters and bosses are settled. Strike of Michigan Miner.. Calumet. Mich., June 19. Nearlv 1.000 miners walked out on a strike at the Tamarack mine. They demanded a 10 per cent, advance in wages and nine hours work. The leaders of the strike are Austrians. No violence has been offered, but Sheriff Bawden and a num ber of deputies are on guard. The strike will undoubtedly extend to the Osceola and Calumet and Hecla mines. Boeton Building Laborers.

I. The Fncertainty for the Fate ol the Thirty-Two Miners Entombed in the Burning Mine at Dunbar, Pa. A Bare Possibility That They May Yet Be Alive The Smoke Pouring from the Mine'. Mouth in Ever Increasing Vol umesDue to the Increased Ventila tion from the Mahoning Mine. Dunbar, Pa., June 19. A dream of apathy haS settled over the people at the burning pit mouth that will not be lifted until it is known to a certainty that the thirty-two entombed men are either living or dead. Even the latter would be a relief from the present strain, as even a knowledge of the very worst is hoped for rather than the dreadful thought that the men, even now, are reluctantly giving up their last breath, with lips touching the low water rims or glued to the heated rails, in a hope that the fearful strangling damp will seek a higher level. At 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the Hill Farm pit showed but a faint wreath of smoke, as if the fire within was burn ing feebly. From that time, however, the smoke grew gradually thicker and heavier, until at 9 p. m. it was belching from the mouth like a torrent, ten times blacker than Monday. The reason given for this is that work had been com menced in the Mahoning mine, which gave more and more ventilation to the Hill mine, as this place is honey-combed with di'ifts and headings. This violent draft leads again to the hope that the men imprisoned have reached the extreme limit of the cham bers toward the Mahoning mine, and are patiently waiting there for life or death. There is no effort being made at the Hill farm mine to offer relief, as the heat and smoke from the pit mouth are unbearable, and it is expected to break into a fiame at any moment, when the shops and small buildings surrounding will go at once. All efforts at rescue are now being made at the Mahoning mine alone. THE RESCUINQ PARTY Cautiously Proceeding Grave Fear, of Another Explosion. The main work is now in hand. The rescuing parties from Mahoning are digging through the fallen wreck that reaches to the roof and are working now within seventy feet of where they ex pect to break into the Farm Hill lead. There is, as usual, a conflict of au thority on this question, as some Btill claim they are digging straight enough Into the burning mine, but that they are fully 300 feet beyond where the men are supposed to be. The men will probably not be obliged to dig through the solid wall after all. There is a steady draught setting in toward the burning chambers and it now looks as if the men had made no mistake in their calculations and will hit the nearest point to a hair's breadth. There are even graver fears now of another explosion since an occurrence of the morning. About SJ o'clock a heavy fall was heard in the mine, and those standing about saw the smoke that had been pouring out in an ever-increasing stream, suddenly atop. At the same time the trip-bell away down in the burning mine rang out loudly. Many thought the men had reached it to give an alarm, but this is absurd, as even if alive they would have been obliged to traverse at least 800 feet of flame before they could have reached the bell. It was found out after that a heavy fall had occurred in the main slope and had cut off the draft. This has turned the smoke and heat back into the chambers in such volumes that no man could live. The heat in the Mahoning drift is growing more intense, and only an oc casional blast from the fan makes their work bearable. This stoppage of the draft will also shut in the gas, and work is proceeding even more cautiously than before. FIRE-DAMP AGAIN. Three Men Terribly Burned Near Monon gahela City, Pa. Pittsburg, June 19. By the explosion of fire damp in the Millsville coal mines, near Monongahela City, Tuesday, Capt. Samuel Carney and his two sons, William and Daniel, were terribly burned.

A Life Saved by Death. Park f.rrb vno, W. Va., June 19. The recent railroad disaster on the Chesa-, peake and Ohio railroad, near Ashland, in which a number of persons were killed, was the means of saving the life of Azero roily, tie was atxmt to be tried on the charge of brutally assaulting Miss Julia Hester, the penalty for which crime in this state is death.

A freight crew which arrived here Tuesday ov-r the Southern Pacific road reports that when they arrived at Separ station, they found the town in the wildest excite ment over the arrival of a - cowboy who had just arrived there barefooted, and his feet covered with cuts and blisters from having run ten miles from a ranch north of Separ, where he and ten other men were camped. The cowboy says that he and the oth ers, who were encamped on a ranch ten miles north of Separ, were surprised on Monday night by a band of twenty-five Indians. The Indians fired into the camp and the cowboy who brings the first information says he saw one of his companions shot to death, and that all except himself were killed. He man aged to elude the Indians, and made his way to Separ. Bands of armed men have left Deming and Lordsburg in search of the murderous savages.

An Agreement Reached Between England and Germany. Berlin, June 19. A conference has been had between Sir Percy Anderson, the British commissioner, and Dr. Krauel, chief of the German colonial department. It is said that a final set tlement of the East African question is assured, but that the arranging of de tails will consume about two weeks. England will probably have her desires in Ngamil granted. German Comments. The press of this city very generally approves of the settlement agreed upon by Germany and England with regard to African affairs. Both governments are congratulated upon the amicable adjustment of all disunited points, and the opinion is expressed that the result will establish the best of relations be tween the two great powers in the near future, and guarantee the continuance of peace. The North German Gazette charac terizes the incident as a fortunate battle in which all were victors and none were vanquished. The Gazette also expresses the opinion that the coming agreement will not. ploase all Germans or all En glishmen. The National Gazette says that Lord Salisbury has met Germany in a spirit of fair dealings and that all annrehen- sions have disappeared. lne ttaintmrirer Jsachtrichten declares the agreemont as outlined, to be a fatal error, as it concedes all to England, while Germany has been tricked in a most absurd manner. SCORING THE MINISTRY. Opponents of the Government Embracing tbe Opportunity. London, June 19. As may be sup posed, the settlement of the East Afri can dispute between England and Germany in tbe manner stipulated in the agreement hot ween tho two' powers just published, is seized upon by the op nents of the government as a club with which to belabor the ministry. While it would be absurd to assume that the opposition would have been satisfied with any settlement the gov ernment might make, even though it involved the presentation of the whole German empire to England, it cannot bo denied that they have a considerable degree of justification for their strict ures in the, very general belief that England has surrendered too much. Several of the papers arraign the gov ernment on this charge, notably The Chronicle, which pays its respects to Lord Salisbury in a violent leader. - In the concluding passage The Chron icle says: "Lord Salisbury has fixed upon the brow of the imperial unionist party an indeliable brand of ignominy which gives the cue to other powers to demand similar concessions." HELIGOLAND. England Cede, the Island to Germany. Comment. Tliereon. , London, Juno 19. Tho Times, com menting on the cession of Heligoland, thinks England fortunate in possessing a bit of land valueless to her, but which has secured such adequate concessions. The Telegraph says tho agreement with Germany should be received thankfully in that so thorny a problem can be solved honorably to Iwth nations! The Post approves the agreement with Germany in every particular. The Chronicle says unless parliament stops the government in its headlong career of capitulation to Germany there is no reason why Italy should allow us to keep Malta. The Standard says the government must pass the licensing and tithes bills this session and show no more plia bility. - As Britisher. Kre It. London, June 19. The Pall Mall Gazette denounces the negotiations con ducted by Lord Salisbury's government with Germany in connection with Af rican affairs as constituting a shameful surrender of British interests and pres tige. The announcement by the premier of the agreement, it says, was admirably dramatic in manner, even though noth ing could be more abject in the matter of its confessions. The Pall Mall Gazette odds that although Lord Salisbury is a master of the art of abnegation, he has neverthe less been compelled to admit that on the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo he meets his Sedau. The St. James Gazette treats the affair tersely and vigorously. It says that the agreement is a bad bargain for Great Britain and that the duty de volves upon parliament of rejecting what it styles the Heligoland surrender bill. MUST DO MILITARY DUTY. Deeendants of British Subjects in Franca Drafted. . - London, June 19 The insistence- of France that resident British subject of the second generation in that country shall be subject to military duty, al though slight of itself, is the cause of ir ritation between England and France. There is a large Britlnh colony in France, some of them settled there ever since Waterloo, and still claiming to lie Brit ish sublects, and the sudden drafting of the sons and grandsons into the uncom fortable existence of a French conscript has shaken np the exiles tremendously. There is no help for them, however, much as they may be disgusted with the situation, and in the event of a conflict with Great Britain their lot will be un enviable indeed. CHOLERA'S RAVAGES.
