Climbing Mountains.
Is a fascinating and invigor
ating pastime. It developes not
the body only, but the mind. The
Alpine Peaks of Switzerland have
their counterpart in our own
country, in the Sierras, the Cas
cades, and parts of the Rockies.
The greatest glacial peak of
the United States is Mt. Ranier
in Washington, more than 15,500
feet high. This magnificent
mountain has 15 or more giant
glaciers creeping down its sides
and discharging their glacial de
tritus into the Columbia river or
Puget Sound.
A climb to the summit of this
is a mountaineerjng feat worthy
of any mountaineer. For 25 centf
Chas. S. Fee, Gen'l Passenger
Agent of the Northern Pacific
railway, St. Paul, Minn.will
send to any address an illustarted
booklet called "Climbing Mt. Ra
nier" describing a climb over gla
ciers to the top of the moun
tain.

NEGROES IN PANIC
ROR FROM DANVILLE,
ILLINOIS.
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. In
definite rumors of a concerted move
to the city have
Added to the Alarm
and has cleared the streets of negroes
and whites have mlngleu freely and
without trouble, not a half-dozen col
ored people ventured last night. 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.

ganizing to continue the pursuit.

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.
