Then the shooting became general, some 400 or 500 shot9 being bred inside of fifteen minutes. This account of the affair is given by the police force of urelaa.

THE GREAT LONDON STRIKE. Chicago, Sept. 1. The Chicago Trades Asseinl ly to-day adopted resolutions de claring that the wonderful rapidity with which the great strike in London spread from the duck laborers to other occupa tions in nowise connected therewith, and the active interest, sympathy and co operation of the great masses of the peo ple in that citv, together with the ten dered and active help of workers in the industrial centres of Great Brilian, Europe, America and Australia, create in the mmas und hearts one common and vital - interest that makes practical and very irolmble a simultaneous uprising cf great niatses ot angry workers, as will seriously endanger the existing social and industrial institutions, and emphasizes the inimediat necessity fcr the employing class to concede such reasonable reforms as will remove the possibility ot the ev olution that threatens such terrible results to life and property. It is estimated that loU,000 persons took part in the demonstration at Hyde park. Durng the progress ot ti'e meet ing Burns and others passed through the crowd and took up a collection lor the benefit of the strikers. - Money was re ceived in hats and open parasols, and a large sum was obtained.

Huntington, interest in the outcome of the engagement between Miss Huntington and Pnnce Hatzfcldt has been revived. People who know Hunt ington best don't believe he will consent to the marriage. One London society paper claims to know that Huntington cabled his consent before leaving New York and agreed to settle $0,000,000 on the bride. Close friends of Miss Hunt ington in best position to judge decline to talk about the matter. Princa Hatz- eldl is described as having red hair and bow-legs, but exceedingly fascinating manners; is a brilliant conversationalist and has the refutation in London draw- rig rooms ot being something ol a wit. THE GOGEBIC STAGE ROBBER. Marquette, Mich., Sept. 1. Holzhay, the Gogebic ttge robber was taken South y the (JogL-ljic sheriff on the tiain this afternoon. The prisoner was defiant, and his demeanor showed him to be ready lor any desperate deed. It is expected that if he is not very closely guarded be will make a determined attempt to escape. The only rtgiet Holzhay expresses in connection with all his criminal career is that the two officers at Republic effected bis capture so easily. He says be was determined not to be taken alive, and had he had the slightest inkling of their pur pose when they were approaching him he would have shot both down unhesitating- ARRIVAL OF THE MININE AT VICTORIA. Victoria, B. C, Sept. 2 The sealing choouer Minnie, owned by Capt. Jcob en, who is also master of the .vessel. arrived from Behring sea this morning.

Lieutenant Tuttle went on board and confiscated 450 seal skins, which had been secured, as well as the arms and spears of the Indian hunters. The, vessel at this time was 60 miles southeast of Ounacka Pass. Charles SviDson, quartermaster of the Rush, was placed on board as a "prize crew," ana Captain Jacobsen ordered to sail for Sit ka.' As soon, however, as the cutter was out of sight, the Minnie sailed eastward, and falling in with seals, new spears were made and 500 seals and nine sea-otters were taken. Before leaving. Lieutenant Tuttle. at the request of Captain Jacob- sen, returned two or me conuscatea spears, to enable the Indians to catch seals for food, and these also came in for service in the final hunt. The "prize crew" protested strongly asainst the action of the Minnie captain in carrying oa business while he was on board, but of course no attention was paid to him. The Indians wanted the captain either to tl.rcw him overboard or put h:m ashore on an is:aua. Captaio Jacobseu says if lie nau been left alone be could easily have secured 2000 skins, but under the circumstances is very giad to get ofl as be did. . ANOTHER SCHOONER ARRrVES. Port Townsend, W.

Dougherty told an associated press reporter to dav that on August 10th he rece.ved a letter from his brother, Edward C. Dougherty, dated at z.ai ut:ia, Ecuador, stating tnat he had been held a close prisoner since Juue 15th. Mr. Dougherty went to Ecuador seven teen years ago, and hs been engaged in various enterprises ot that countrv. He married a iiiece of the president of Ecu- auor in lbio, and bits recently been tu gaged in gold mining, llie letter gave no reason lor tne imprisonment, but re ferred to correspondence enelosed, vhich had been hauded United States Consu General JicGair.

Great Falls, Moat. Sept. 2-The news has just been received hero Viat Barker was almost totally destroyed by fire yesterday. The fire started in a m ner scamp three doors below Zeigler's house, and swept from there uo the valley, burning all the eastern portion of the camp. It is sup. posed that Ellis, his wife and four chil dren were lost. Three men also are miss ing. Barker is the business center of the entire Barker district, and is about sixty five miles southeast of Great Falls. A HORRIBLE FATE. Louisville. Sept. 2. A Courier Jour nal special from Somerset, Ky., says: William Oates, prominent and wealthy farmer residing a lew miles lrom Monti- cello, left home on business with bis wife and left two young daughters in charge of the house. Oates had in his employ a negro boy nearly grown. Knowing that the older people were away, he eutered the house. and after locking the doors upon the two young girls succeeded in ravishing the youogest, aged 12. The other girl es caped from the room, and going to uAt neighbor s house gave the alarm. U A posse was immediately organized and started iu pursuit. Hu was caught in the woods and tied to a stake. A raVl pen was then built arouud him, coal oil was poured over him and upon the rails. A match was then applied, and the negro was burned to death. Hoodoos. A Chicago lawyer'has explained to a Chicago court that a hoodoo is something which pursues a man with misfortune, much in the manner that a wheelbarrow makes its haunting presence known for a weary while to the unloilunate person wno has stumbled over it in the dark. This is not a bappy illustration. To stumble over a wheelbarrow is doubt'ess, perplexing, painful, maddening. But there is nothing weird, uncanny, or bale ful about such an experience. It is sim ply a piece of plain unvarnished misfor tune, which can be explained by the laws of gravity. On the one hand, a hoodoo is something which shatters natural laws in order to work harm. A man who has been hoodooed finds that nil the forces of nature are in active conspiracy against him. If he goes out to borrow money his pocket will "be picked and none of his friends will lend him a cent. If he goes on a journey the railroad train wiil run off the track. If he rides on a cable car he will get stuck in the tuunel. In a word, he is hoodooed. Some people would call the outward manifestations of a hoodoo mere bad luck. But the adept in hoodoos can observe an important distinction between the two. The spell of the hoodoo must be broken by an incantation, while bad luck will simply wear itself out. There are two excellent .preventives for hoodoos. One is to get a mascot and the other is to decline to be a hoodoo. A. Girl of To-Day.

Page on a charge of robbing the U. S. mail terminated yesterday morning before Commissioner Farnbam by the honorable discharge of the defendant. Page succeeded by the testimony of numerous witnesses in proving an alibi. At the time of tbe stage robbery he was at Cracker City, twelve miles distant, and was able to give a good account of himself from the time of his first departure from this city until his return. That the least suspicion of his connection with the robbery should be placed on his shoulders is without justification.

As farmer and gardners they alsj deserve some credit. This week they have been supplying the market here with vegetables that almost put the wmte gar deners to shame, and show that the native American has learned the secret of making tne crouud produce as well as has hu white nrotner. Deputy Sheriff Frank Wrightman re turned yesterday from his trip to the moun tains up the North Santiam, says the States man and reports that the work of laying track on tho extension of the O. P. railroad is te be commenced early next week. Should there be sufficient iron and other track material on hand, and a reasonable force of men kept to work steadily, the road can be placed in good running order clear to the summit before the season compels a cessation of labor. An ordinary track lay ing oang will put down a mile to a mile and a quarter a day, and two years ago this kind of work was doie until the middle of November. 1 1 taks 68 tons of steel, or six carloads, to the mile, so the reader can see it is no small matter to bave on hand and to get to the front the material for an extension of 35 or 40 miles.

Tha rnViKcra nmomrA The Bulgarian Ilonk. Tliia morning a reporter of the Times Mountaineer called upon the Bulgarian Monk, Rev. A. N. Experidon and found him an educated and intelligent man. For what reason be was incarcerated he did not know, and could give us do information. He was born in Jerusalem, of Bulgarian parents, and is a member of the Scalavonio race. He speaks thirty-two languages, and is graduated from Oxford. During the travels of cert lin Americans in Palestine, among whom were Mark Twain and Dr. Gibson, he acted as guide and interpreter. He is a gentleman of most plsasing address and affable manners. His dress is after the Turkish costume, but be preaches the doo , tine of love to all and universal brother- hool. In the authenticity aud inspiration of the Old and Now Testament he believes implicitly, aud claims to bo a member of tho Old Brotherhood of Christians, or what is culled iu Russia "Staliro Brats." Mr. Experidon has preached in oearl v every county iu America, and claims his niuuirn to bo to convert preacher aud priest. In New Mexico he was threatened to be hanged, but tbe soldiers protected him, and in other places he has suffered persecution. List night after preaching, tbe box which be was using as a platform was taken from under him, and ho says ho waa followed to Ins camp by booting hoodlumswho attempt ed by every means to insult him; "but," using his own language, "we must exercise Christian charity. Ot the American gov eminent he has the highest regard, and lias received courtesies from our most influen tial citizens, among whom he mentions the Dames of President Harrison, ' Secretary Blaine, and formerly Vice President Colfax, now deceased. All tho rights he wants are those guaranteed by our constitution, "free dom ot speech." The question he rienirei answered is: If one is prutectoJ in hu right or is the mob to ru'e? He was afraid last night that he would be lynched and was glad tha officer took him nnder protection. We are sorry that this out burst ot hoodlumism took place; sorry for the reputation ot tr-e city, and sorry tor-trie young men or boys who lead it, and hope it will never occur again. China men, Turk, Bulgarian, Greek or African haye equal rights under our constitution, and must be protected. , Fan at Poeatelio. East Oregonlan. 1 "Soapy" Smith, the gambler who re cently gained some unenviable notoriety by assaulting the editor of a Denver paper, was a passenger on to-day's west-bound train, aud had a row at Poeatelio with a switchman whom he had assaulted aud robbed some time ago. The switchman caught sight of Smith on the platform, and a quarrel ensued. Smith then entered the car and sat down, while the switchman went in search of a gun. He finally re turned with a pistol and began firing at Smith through tbe car window. Smith also drawing a weapon and returning the com pliment with interest. Eleven shots were exchanged in all, but neither of the princi pals was injured; only an innocent by stander got a shot in the leg. Sympathy is all on the side of tbe switch man, as ''Soapy" is known to be a shady and desperate character and the latter only was arrested and placed in jail. Poeatelio is considerably excited over the affair. . The platform was crowded with passen gers when the shooting commenced, among whom wero women and children, and the fact that none were killed by the promis cuous interchange of bullets, is considered almost miraculous Graphic accounts of the row were related by several ot the pas sengers duriDg tbe short stop at Pendleton.
