of tliu steamboat Little Hill, Cantain

first and that it was only after several
of their best men had fallen that the

CitiCAdo, July 27. Special. A.'G.
Trout was at the Sherman yesterday.
He is direct from tho scene of the Ca-nr
d'Alene troubles. Mr. Trout says that
tho reports of Affairs there nre greutU
exaggerated, and that only the mine
owners' Mdu of the story has been told.
In regard to thu alleged maseacre ut
M Union hu says a special train was
sent there but nothing could he found
to bear out tho story; tho thing, he
said, was a lie made out of whole cloth.
One man, it is supposed, was killed ac-
ciucniauy. .-o union men wero in tnai
part of the country. "It was forty
miles," continued Mr. Trout, ''from the
scene of thu liots. If any killing war
done it was by times and hoboa from
Tekoa. o resistance has been offered
to thu military authorities, uor will
there be while union counsel prevails.
"The Sullivan,(letective guards have
been aggressors from the first, and it U
duo to tho moderation of tho lenders
that tho men did not gofuithcr in their
onslaught upon them.
"I arrived in Wullace tho Thursday
evening before tho outbreak. Tho mi
ners expected an attack on the town
tliat night, and nearly all stayed in
town awaiting it. We wero called
early by a man who said thu non-union
uin ha'd attacked tho town. Wo went
out and found there had been a few
shots fired. Everybody was taking to
tho woods. That was In tho morning.
I'rom that timo until 7 or 8 o'clock the
firing was pretty swift. I should think
it was about 9 o'clock that tho mill was
blown up. In tho early part of the
skirmish there were eleven shots fired
at n 14-year-old Swede boy. When
ever nny one showed up tho guards
fired at him. Tho entire town was rid
dled. Thero aro no marks of shots at
the Gem property.
"The fight at the Frisco originated by
ono of tho guards firirg at Midland men
going home by tho trail on tho Hlaek
Bear ground. The mines captured
tho guard, took his gun auay from him,
hit him on the head, and lot him go.
That led to the general fight. The ine.n
from Gem protected tho other side of
the mill nud tho light became general.
In regard to newspaper correspondents,
they wero accorded every courtesy and
werogivon passes by tlie secretary of
the central committee."

Washington, July 27. Associated
Press. In tho senate three speeches
wero i nnd a on tho anti-option bil'.
Senator Cooko neailcd it for its uncon
stitutionality. Senator Mitchell made
a legal argument in support of the con
stitutionality of tho hill, and Somitor
Palmer argued against it na an invasion
against tho rights of states.
Wli.in Senator Washburn tried to get
unanimous consent to have a day fixe 1
for n final voto, objection was intei
posed. For some weeks past numbers of peti
tions have been presented in the senat)
and referred to tlie committee on foreign
relations, in reference to tho imprison
ment in England of Dr. Thomas Glials
ger. Today Senator Sherman remarked
that tho committee did not know what
the legislative department of govern
ment had to do witli the question.
Tho senate bill to create a national
highway commission, etc., passed.
The senate bill facilitating the en
forcement of immigration and contract
laws passed. Thu senate then ad
journed. Tho houso resumed the consideration
of thu sundry civil bill. The motion by
Mr. Bankhcad yesterday to reduce tint
appropriation for tho world's fair from
five million to live dollars, wasdefeatei)
by 60 to 113. Tho voto was then an
nounced, 117 for tho fair appropriation :
15 against. Mr. Holmaii moved to ie
cousider that and Mr. Bingham moved
to lay the motion on tho table. Fili
bustering commenced and thu house
adjourned, leaving tho matter hung up.
The Lottery Obeys llio T.uw.
In view of tho contradictory rumon
circulated regarding tho intentions o
the Louisiana Stato Lottery Compaii)
and in order to accurately answer nu
merous inquiries a representative ol
the Times-Ocnioerat yesterday inter
viewed Mr. Paul Conrad, tho president
of the company, with the result ex
pressed below.
Reporter Mr. Conrad, it ws assert
ed sumo weeks ago in thu Northern
newspapers, and thu statement has
since been revived recently that the
company is about to remove to Nicara
gua, and them, under a government
Franchise, open up tiio business on a
grander scale than over.
President Conrad I have heard some
thing of tlii", but tbcro is no foundation
for it. Tlie company has officially
stated that it bows to the decision of the
supreme court and will respect the
laws.
Ueportcr Then have you no plans of
future action?
President Conrad I cannot stato the
caso moro strongly than was done at
tho timo tho company decided not to at
tempt to obtain a ruuuwal of its charter.
I ran only repeat that tho company will
continue In business until tho expira
tion of its present charter and then
censo to exist. I cannot understand,
after all that has lieon said, why there
should be nny confusion in the public
mind about the matter.
Reporter Have you any objection to
my stating this as a finally for the sat
isfaction of the public?
President Conrad None Whatever.
Reporter Some of the Eastern pa
pers, Mr. Conrud, persistently asseit
that tho lottery company continues to
ueo tho United States mails in the pro
secution of its business; will you kindly
tell mo if that is true?
President Conrad It is utterly un
true. We aro obeying tho law in its let
ter and spirit, and our agents every
where arc instructed to obey it. Wo
aro using the express companies only in
our business, and in nil our circulars are
printed instructions to all persons deal

A Constant Procession of Prospect

Tiiks Pisos, Cal., July 27. Some ex
citement attended the opening of the
land grant today. Settlers in farm
wagons have been passing through the
town continually during the nlglit and
today Homo are going to and others
coining from t he-county clerk's office at
Holliater. Theso were generally old
settlers who have no doubt been able to
prove their residence on tho land and
their cultivation of it.
San Francisco land hunters who have
rushed into thn country during the past

This town is crowded with land
seekers who have tiot yet made selec

for the stage to depart in tho morning
for Punociie nnd Vallecitos which tho
squatters think nro the choicest places
for settlement. Old timers aro affected
very littlo by tho opening of tho land,
but now coiners aro nervous and ex
cited. But there has been no violence
outside of a few fights where two set
tlers have located upon the same quar
ter section. A fow hardy women aie

Thoy wero discussing tho characters in
which Booth had been most successful,
ond the young mnn with a blond mus

far his best part.
"If you over saw him in that part
when ho was at his best," ho said, "you
wouldn't dlsputo tho assertion for a mo

tho dark beard scornfully. "I'vo seen

his Othello."

Condolence Out of rfneo.

WW idea, After Jlro ?W$ OV Consider-
When J. B. Harrington woko yester
day morning from a fitful slumber ho
imagined ho saw tho doors of a well
known structuro at Yuma yawning ter
ribly. In fact Mr. Harrington had been
having a night mare about this same
structure. Part of tho time it seemed
to bo a hideously large and fierce look
ing animal of some unknown specios;
its jaws were always opon and its glar
ing eyes wero over upon him.
Thu fact was that Mr. Harrington
was to bo tried tlie next morning for at
tempted rapu and tho witnesses were
all on the other side.
The case was called before Justice
Huson ; Mr. Crenshaw represented the
stato and Judge Isrncl nppeared for the
nervous defendant, llio testimony of
tho sister of Ventura Cordova, the pros
ecuting witness, supported by thnt 6f
three other women, is what really saved
Mr. Harrington, or at any rate pie
vented niin from getting into deeper
trouble.
She had scon too much, considering
the circumstances. Last Saturday
night at midnight when sho said tilt
crime had been committed, was an un
usually dark period. She was sleeping
on a cot outsjdo tho house about sixteen
feet from where her sister lay. She
was wakened by a man who approached
her sister's cot, lay down upon it and
put his anus around the sleeping occu
pant. Tho witness knew that this man was
tho defendant by his blue shirt and
whlto suspenders. When her sistei
invoke shu screamed and the intrude
after warning her to keep still jumped
from the cot nnd ran away. The wit
ness and the three other women who
had also recognized these distinguish
ing features of his dress iu the inky
darkness immcdiatnly tracked him 300
yards by his foot-prints in the moist
dust to tho place where ho wss stop
ping. There their recognition of him
was confirmed although there was no
light at this place either. All told pre
cisely the same story and their evidence
was carefully nursed nnd oncouraged by
Mr. Israel until it developed into n
growth of mammoth prepoiterousness.
At the conclusion of the stato's evi
dence Mr. Crenshaw moved to dismiss.
Tho motion was granted and in a vision
of happiness the laid defendant looked
down toward Yuma and noticed that
those terribly yiwning doors had been
kindly closed.
Tho friends of tho prosecuting wit
ness are quite indignant nnd threaten
to bring the matter beforo the grand
jury. Nobody doubts that there was a
man there that night, and that the wit
nesses believe thu man was Harrington,
but their decisiveness about seeing
what would have puzzled a cat to see
wrecked the case.

fter b Yvar VUlt to the Flowery
Kingdom.
Too Gun, a proprietor of tho Garden
City restaurant, returned yesterday
from a year's visit to Chinn and was
heartily welcomed back by his Celestial
friends in Phoenix. Joo says ho was
glad to Bee tho Flowery Kingdom again.
He renewed many acquaintances in
that far-offland and altogether he had
,-t much moro pleasant timo than he
bad expected. Bat Joe wouldn't trade
Arizona for the whole of China and ho
said iu comparison of his preferences,
"he no likce Chinaman."
He found that all eyes were turned
toward tho United States and that all
that nrevents an Influx of his country
men is the restriction'act.
When Joo reached San Frnncipco on
his return ho was detained on board the
veEBel. A telegram was sent to his
friends hero; they applied to Governor
.Murphy and Ben Butler, who wired tho
custom house officers nnd cetablishcd
Joe's identity.

SnlM Nolilllty.
A few years ago tho question was
asked, "Does nobility still exist in
Switzerland J" And no one was nble to
answer it. Of all the thousand of Eng
lish folk who haunt tho Swiss hotels in
summer not one, it would seem, had
inquired whether that Rudolph von
Erkch, whoso equestrian statuo they
must havo seen, has any living descen
dants; not ono had over heard of tho
Barnese nobility a uoblesse which holds
itself so high that it thinks but slightly
of the British legation. Yet from the
Jura to tho Lugano thero 13 hardly a
canton" thero is perhaps no canton
in which noble families nre not to be
found.
Some of these, such ns tho Plantas
andthoBuols of tho Grabunden, have
turned their energy into modern chan
nels and mako their fortunes, like the
Hausers or tho Sellers, out of the Eng
lish and tho American tourists. Others,
like tho Von Allmon, have sunk into a
humbler rank. But tho greater part ro
main In statu quo, still enjoying in tho
towns or in tho country a social pres
tige that varies with their wealth and
their intelligence. Temple Bar.
Knrly Method of Curing Sltlni.
The original process of curing skins
was probably tho simplo ono of cleaning
and drying them. Removal of tho hair
, by maceration in water seems to haro
been common among the very early
' tribes, and ono writer has suggested
i that tho idea was obtained from the
J natural process of depilation. They
i must certainly have been familiar with
' it in the caso of drowned animals, where
maceration can bo plainly observed.
, Following this, smoke, sour milk, oil,
' and the brains of tho animals themselves
1 wero found efficacious. Many of theso
! primitive methods aro employed at the
present time, thus bringing Into novel
conjunction tho days of tho roving Mas
Eagotm and thoso of the thrifty Ameri
can. George A. Rich in Popular Science
Monthly.
I Duel or Two atrt.
I At Charkoff, Russia, two girls who
wero friends fell in love with the same
young man. Ho was slow to make his
selection between them. They agreed
that either could win him if delivered of
tho baueful competition of tho other.
They decidod upon a duel by drawing
lots. On the day following ono of the
young ladies was found dead in her
room. Sho had poisoned herself with
phosphorus. But her tnenu 13 oroiicn
down with sorrow and remorse. It is
moro than likely that bIio wilL not livo
to enjoy tho fruits of her victory. Paris

I YprH Times.
A gratifying spectaclo was witnessed
near Wasington and Maricopa streets
night before last soon after dark. A
well known merchant with his wife was
sitting on tho sidwalk in front of his
place of business when n man commonly
known as "Frenchy" came alone.
"Frenchy" was well dressed and of
mashing proclivities. As he passed the
gentleman and his wife, though un
acquainted with either, he raised his hat
and saluted impudently.
He went on down the.street but soon
returned. In the mean time tho mer
chant had stepped into tho store for a
moment and was still inside when
"Frenchy" re-appeared. The masher
accosted tho lady familiarly and remark
ed that hu was unmarried, and inquired
of her if sho could give him a pointer
which would enable him to simulate tho
matrimonial relation. Just at this mo
ment tho merchant came out and over
heard tho insulting question.
Ho planted his right fist on
"Frenchy's" jaw and the masher turned
a somersault across the ditch into the
street. He was allowed to regain his
feet' when another pile-driving blow
flattened him. This time he got up
running and yelling "murder; police,"
and otherwise indicated that he was in
soro need of more thorough protection
than the McKinley bill has thrown
around the tin industry.
He eecaned down Maricopa street
and took refuge in a corral where ho lay
all day vesterday nursing his shattered
jaw and injurcd'vanity.
This incident is chiefly interesting on
account of its execediug rarity. The
masher is a seldom bird in Phoenix and
the dude by reason of his scarcity in
this -community is classified with Gila
monsters brought in from tho desert by
the Indians, arid other specimens o'f
creation either nearly extinct or never
abundant. Thcie is possibly no other
place between the Atlantic and Pacific
where a lady is so secure from insult as
in Phoenix and the outcome of this iso
lated instance will have tho effect of
discouraging similar episodes in the im-
mediato future.
