A climb to the summit of this is a mountaineerjng feat worthy of any mountaineer. For 25 centf Chas. S.

THEY FEAR FOR THEIR LIVES EVERY FREIGHT TRAIN THAT LEAVES THE CITY CARRIES ITS QUOTA. KEYED TO HIGH PITCH OF HATRED SLIGHTEST TROUBLE WOULD CULMINATE IN A TERRIFIC STRUGGLE. Danville, III., July 29Under spur of the fear of an outbreak between the negroes and whites, more than 800 colored people have fled from Danville as a result of the lynching of John Metcalf on Saturday night. Although general ealni pervades on the surface, a feverish condition exists both within the city and at the min ing towns within fifteen miles of the city. A concerted movement yester day by the Vermillion county bar to bring to Justioe the mob murderers has had no effect in quieting the alarm of the colored people, and every freight train that leaves the city car ries its quota of fleeing negroes.

Fear of further trouble, botn in Danville and in the coal mining regions here abouts, has prompted Sheriff Whltlock to post at all the mining camps a number of persons to watch the move ments of factions that he may prevent a recurrence of the hideous affair of last Saturday night. li is generally believed that the sligt-.^st trouble be tween the whites and negroes would culminate in a tragic struggle, for both sides, while trying to prevent trouble, are keyed to a high pitch of hatred. The negroes themselves are thor oughly alarmed. Sevei.il hundred who were brought here from the South to work are Trying to Get Away. The reputable citizens of the city are doing all in their power to restore absolute quiet and minimize the like lihood of further trouble. Sheriff Whitlock, whose action in shooting into the mob to defend the jail against attack, has won him unstinted praise from all sides, is working hard to aid in the prosecution. He already has se cured the names of thirty persons, most of whom he himself recognized while they were storming the jail, and these he will lay before the special or regular grand Jury, whichever may have charge of the cases.

WARM WELCOME TO GIBBONS FEATURE OF MEETING OF THE CONGREGATION OF CAR DINAL8. ECCLESIASTICS ARE WORRIED VIEW WITH ALARM THE COM- MEMORATION OF KING HUM BERT'S OEATH. Rome. July 29.-Almost all the car dinals of the conclave have now ar rived. Their time yesterday was mainly occupied with a lengthy meet ing of the congregation, which was notable for the cordiality with which Cardinal Gibbons was received. After the meeting the cardinals received numerous visits at their various resi dences. In well Informed circles Cardinal Angelo di Pietro, pro-datary of the pope, is being talked of as a compromise candidate in the event that Cardinals Oreglia, Gotti, Ram polla or Serafino Vannutelll fail to se cure the necessary votes. Should Di Pietro be elected pope h would, it is said, be the representative of the representative of the Rampolla-Gotti faction, and yet would be fairly Acceptable to All. Cardinal Michael Ixigue, archbishop of Armagh, who, with the exception of Cardinal Gibbons, will be the only English-speaking cardinal in the con clave, arrived yesterday from Ireland. He sa^d he believed that the successor to Leo would ho quickly chosen. Speaking of Cardinal Gibbons, the Irish cardinal paid him a glowing tribut, though, like all the prelates here, he held out no uopo that the American cardinal had tho remotest chance of election. "Indeed," said Cardinal Logue, "I think Cardinal Gibbons would be a subject for commiseration If the aelec tinon should devolve upon him, for no American would care to spend tho rest of his life confined within the pre cincts of the Vatican." The Irish Cardinal expressed tho opinion that the question of sending A Note to the Powers protesting against the treatment of the Vatican by the Italian government should he left to the next pope. It is now prat ically certain that all the cardinals will he present at the conclave except Cardinal Moran, archbishop of Sydney, who will not reach Rome In time, and Cardinal Celesta, archbishop of Palermo, who Is too ill to attend. A proclamation was posted In the streets of Rome last night inviting citizens to the annual commemoration of tho death of King Humbert on July 29. Tho ecclesiastics view the approaching ceremony with some alarm, believing that the ant! Clericals may take advantage of tho opportunity to make a counter demon stration against the sympathy exhib ited all over Italy in connection with the death of the pope. RELIANCE IS THE DEFENDER.
