Excitement l‘n Servla.
BELGRADE, Oct. 24.—Great ’ excitement is
caused here by the news that the Austrian

measure against the Servian‘ attempt to
place the trade of the Servian river ports
entirely in Rvssian hands. The trial of the
notorious female brigand named Mila has
commenced at Pozarevalz. She was a ter
ror to Servia for years on acrnunt of the

ders and an endless number of robberies.
Thirteenth. Regiment Band.
Innes’ Thirteenth Regiment band, which
was the life of the Tacoma exposition, gave

pia audience. Every number was greeted
with an enthusiasm, which relpeatedly
called tor encores. The band eft this
morning for Portland, and will appear in
all the principal cities on their way back
to New York. Mr. Innes said last night
that he appreciated the circumstances
which broug,y it out so few people, he could
not complain. He paid the highest kind
of a tribute to Olympia’s theater, calling it
a perfect gem, and a credit to a city of
20,000 rather than one ofß,t'3ll.
The Innes band was organized in 1887, in
New York, the first engagement being at
the San Francisco exposition. On the re
turn to New York, Mr. Innes received a;
proposition to attach the band to the Thir
teenth Regiment. which was done, Innes

Men Wearing- the American Unl
form Killed and Wounded in
the streets of Valparaiso.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.——Secretary Tracy
said this morninga further study of the
cipher dispatch received from Captain
Schley. Baltimore. Thursday, in regard to
the recent assault on American sailors at
Valparaiso, showed in addition to the kill
ing of one man and seriously wounding
six others, that thirty—five other American
seamen arrested and detained by Chilean
authorities at the same time and they were
afterwards examined and dismissed, there
being no proof that they had been guilty
of any misbehavior. This confirms Cap
tain Scheleys other statement that the
Americans were unarmed sober and be
haved Well at the time of the trouble and
also indicates that at least forty men of
Baltimore’s contingent of 275 men were the
objects of the rage
or A CHILEAN Mon.
It also appears now up to the date of
Captain Schley’s report that the Chilean
l authorities had taken no steps to arrest
land punish any Chileans responsible for
the affair or at any rate no Chileans were
‘arrested for that movement or that justice
had operated in any direction for the as
sault against the Americans. Oificials
thoroughly familiar with all the facts in
possessmn of the government in regard to
the Valparaiso affair, pointed out this
morning that it was altogether different in
its material feature from the Italian affair
at New Orleans. In the latter case, the
men assaulted were domiciled here and
were practically citizens of the United
States. At any rate they bore no official
relation to the government of Italy. In
the Valparaiso case, on the other hand
the men attacked wore the uniform of the
United States government, and were at
tacked simply because they were Ameri
cans. The otficial said 1; 1e attack upon 1
them was 1
A DELIBEBATE INSULT
to the American flag and could be regard
ed in no other way. Secretary Tracy had
an interview with the president this morn
ing in regard to the matter, but positively
re uses to say what lan of action has been
agreed upon. It is Enown that the admin
istration. regards the situation as most se
rious and that the incident is not one that
can be overlooked as a simple street row.
While no other vessels have been ordered
to Chili to enforce the demand for repara
tion thatwill robably he made, it is likely
that the navanorce in the Chilian waters
will be speedily reinforced unless this gov
ernment receives proper assurance from the
Chiliau government that proper justice
will be meted ant to the oli'enders. Minis
ter Egan has been advised of the views of!
the administration, but the exact nature 01"
the messages sent him cannot be ascer
tained.

CHINESE IMMIGRATION RUINING
,1. WHITE LABoR»
'l‘lle Worklnen of British Colllmbla
Protest Against ll—Somc
Excitcnmnt.
OTTAWA, Ont., Oct. ELL—Advices from
British Columbiaare to the eii'ect that great
excitement exists among the white labor
ersover the refusal of the Dominion gov
ernment at the last session to adopt legisla
tion restricting immigration of Chinese la—
borers. The Chinese arrive in hundreds
on every steamer from Hong Kong, and,
although hundreds make their escape
across the boundary line into the United
States,a considerable number remain in
the Pacific provinces. The presence of a
battery at Victoria and the militia on the
mainland are said to have prevented riots.
which otherwise would have occurred
within the last few months. A bill is now
before the Colmnbian legislature, making
it illegal to employ Chinamen in the
mines. '
CHICAGO. Oct. 24.~—Treasnry Agent Scan
lon today says he received advices from
his inspectors who are now watching the
Canadian border to the effect that there
are SIO,OOO Celestials in Vancouver and
along the line of the Canadian Pacific rail—
way, who are suffering for want of food,
said Mr. Scanlon, and they are unable to
obtain employment or money. The vast
number of arrivals, I believe is the. result
of the notice spread among the Chinese by
influential Chinamen. that if returned
home it is very easy to get into the United
States. Ibclieve also that the Canadian
government is assisting the Celestials into
the country in order to get SSO per head,
which they are compelled to pay. The
government. I believe, is also expecting
someexelusion legislation next winter‘and
now desire to get in all the Chinamen they
possibly can. If this big rush is not stop
ped soon there will be untold suffering
among the new arrivals, as there are twice
as many in Vancouver at present as can
find employment. .
Bad Blood in St. Louis.

who is to be prosecuted by the French gov
ernment for disregarding the circular of
the minutes of public worship enjoining
the archbishop of France not to leave their
discese without the cnseut of the govern
ment. The order was issued as a result of
the recent popular manifestations at Rome
against the French pilgrims who were said

he deflores the fact that Roman riotcrs
were a lowed to indulge with impunity in
everii kind of license. profane the church,

Selling Their Hair.
LONDON, Oct. 24.—The St.' Petersburg
correspondent of the Standard says the ap
proach of frost has caused a. renewal of
distress. The Novosti estimates 20,000,000
people without food. Statistics prove con—
clusively in many places that speculators
get exorbitant prices. The corn merchants
of the village of Kooleks, are usurers, and
are charged with the responsibility for the
extortion. A Samaria paper declares that
the Jews are angels compared with the
Koolaks, who are in the habit ofreducing
