of the Wardner Union; John W. Murphy,
secretary of the Wardner Union; David

others. The president of the Wardner
union, however, is still at large.
All day the steady tramp of the regulars
has been heard bringing the union men
down to the camp at the ball grounds, just
above the railway junction. The order of
march was four soldiers, two strikers and
then two soldiers. As the strikers marched
aiong most of them were sullen. Some
tried to smile, but It was a sickly, yellow
smile. They had begun to see the serious
side of the affair.
Arrests have also begun at Wallace, and
the president of the union there is said to
have jumped the country, lf he is appre
hended the victory for law and order will
be complete, as the strikers will be without
a leader, and will split up into small par
ties easily taken.
Mullan ls the point to which all eyes are
now turned.
The Mullan men have beeu the mo*, vio
lent. The town is 90 miles away and will
be the last stronghold of the strikers. They
are shutting off all communication with the
outside world and already mauy trestles
have been blown up and bridges destroyed.
It is felt that the troops must move on the
place soon. They will have to march in.
Colonel Carliu is carrying on a most sys
tematic campaign. Every move tells, and
the days of the Co_ur d'Alene strike trouble
are uahl to be numbered.
The Bunker Hill and Sullivan Miues to
night are fortified and strongly garrisoned
by 250 armed and determined nou-uuion
men, who leturned to-. lay. Nothing short
of cannon can dislodge them. The town is
patrolled by troops ana everything is quiet
and peaceful.
Manager Clement gives the following
statement to the public: "My instructions
from the directors of our company are, that
as the Government has undertaken to pro
tect the workingmen in the Cceur d'Alenes,
I must resume operations as quickly as
miners can be engaged. I have been ordered
to give the preference to all old hands and
to secure. If possible, all the late
miners, and to continue hiring men until
fully supplied. The rate of wages and other
conditions remain unchanged, viz.: $3 50
for skilled miners, $3 for skilled labor,
10 hours on day shifts, and 9 hours and one
off each shift for Saturdays. No discrim
ination will be made as to the nationality,
personal affiliation or to members not of
any society or labor union. All are equally
eligible as long as they are well-be
haved, faithful to their work and har
monious, both with tbeir employer
and their fellow - workmen. 1 have
already secured the return of every one of
the miners that were at work in the mines
at the time of the forced close down of our
mines by the strikers. The meu were per
fectly wild with delight at the prospect of
returning. I found most of them at Tekoa,
and word being also sent to Spokane all met
at Tekoa and came up on one train to-day.
A large number, who at the time of the close
down armed themselves and took to the
mountains, have also returned, so that now
our crew at the mines numbers about 300.
The mines and mills will start to work day
after to-morrow."
Nobody Knows Who Caused Them or
Why They Were Cacaed,
Wallace, Idaho, July 15.— Last night
about 10 o'clock two heavy explosions
were heard at "Wallace. In a moment the
greatest excitement and consternation pre
vailed. A special train was soon prepared
on the Union Pacific, and a company of
troops were marched to the depot. Report
followed report that the Gem and Granite
mills had been blown up, and it was also
feared that tie Northern Pacific train
would be blown up, with the troops, it lt
made the run to Gem in 'be darkness. An
other report was started that white troops
would receive p. welcome at Canyon Creek,
but that the colored troops would be blown
out of the canyon with giant powder, it
as finally thought best to move the tra ; n,
and the troops were marc back to camp.
Another report was started that the
mountains about Wallace were full of
armed miners and that they were to be seen
moving about just before dark to secure
positions of vantage.
This morning an Associated Press cor
respondent went to Gem and found every
thing quiet. The Gem mill was all right
aud had been protected by an armed guard
of miners since Monday noon to prevent
any damage to the property. The troops
came up tills morning at 9 o'clock aud they
•re now quartered at the Gem mill. They
number over 100.
The cxi losions which caused the excite
ment in Wallace last night occurred below
Mullan, and startled the Mullan pec; as
much bs they did these, of Wallace. The
people turned out in a body, including all
the miners in town, and found that a tele
- graph pole had been blown up, but could
not, in the darkness, find the cause of the
second explosion. Who caused these ex
plosions is yet a mystery, but it is sup
posed that union miners did the work.
Tom O'Brien, president of the Central
Executive Miners' Union; C. F. Povnlon,
secretary, and about 20 other members of
the union were among those arrested tins

He la Given Compete Control of the
County of Shoshone.
Boise, July 15. —The Governor issued the
following general order to-day:
Inspector-General Curtis is hereby appointed
provost marshal of Shoshone County, Idaho,
with authority to appoint as many deputies as
tie deems necessary.
This evening General Curtis telegraphed
that be had issued an order commanding ail
tbe members of the Miners' Union to sur
render themselves and their arms to the
military. Another order, of which he sends
a copy, was addressed to the Union and
Northern Pacific railroad companies, and
commands them not to transport any per
sons out of the district who are not provided
with passes [ten military headquarters.
A question has been raised here by the
fact that the act of Congress creating the
Judicial districts of Idaho transfers all cases
now pending to the districts in which tbey
originally arose. This would send the
Miners' Union injunction cases to the
northern district, where the court will not
convene until January, and tend-, to com
plicate any action that may hereafter be
taken in reference to punishing any of tbe
union men for contempt in violating the re
straining order of the court.

Cataldo to-day, and it is thought the hills

troubled districts have been closed to travel.
Nobody is now permitted to go into the
country without a military pass. Colonel
Carliu has 1000 troops under his command,
and has called on all the members of tho
Miners' Union to come in and surrender.
Notwithstanding the presence of the troops,
the strikers continue to make their presence

Bcme Interesting Points Come Dp Before
the Commission.
Chicago, July 15.— The Interstate Com
merce Commission decided to ask United
States Judge Gresham to decide whether
Vice-President Sterling of the Illinois Steel
Company must answer the questions put to
him regarding the ownership of the stock
of the small switching roads bis company
was al:e-'ed to possess.
When Sterling's attorneys learned of this
move they asked for a brief time to con
sider, and as a result of the conference the
hearing of the petition was postponed until
September 6.
General Freight Agent Brown of the
Grand Trunk gave the commission one piece
of information. He admitted that the fast
freight lines were organized by the roads
selves for the purpose of giving re
bates on excessive charges or to settle
claims. The expense of maintaining the
lines was met by assessing each road for its

PAJMO-TS, Kan?., July 15.— The official-;
of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas road are
satisfied that it was the Daltou gang which
held up the train at Adair, 1,1. T., last
night. Before robbing the train they held
up the station agent and secured everything
of value at the station. The amount taken
from the express-car is not Known and con
jectures run all the way from an insignifi
cant sum up to £75,000. During the skir
mish between the robbers and the guard a
stray bullet entered a drugstore uptown,
wounding J)r_ Youngblood and GofT. The
latter has since died and the former is in a
critical condition. A posse has gone in
pursuit of the desperadoes.
A Descendant of Bobbie Burns Is Buried by
Chicago, July 15— The only child of the
great-grandson of the immortal Scotch poet,
Robert Burns, was buried heie to-day by
charity, while its father, Robert. Burns
Hutchinson, is lying in the hospital and is
expected to die at any minute. Some weeks
ago Hutchinson was waylaid by footpads,
aud besides losing i radically all the money
he had was made helpless by a fractured
skull. He has been gradually sinking ever
since. The only descendants of the i>oet

Homestead, July 15.— The Right Rev.
Samuel Fallon, a Protestant Episcopal
Bishop of Chicago, addressed a secret
meeting of locked-out workmen this morn
ing. Among other things he said:
"I have nothing to say about the right or
wrong of the work done on the river bunk
last week; but the fact which stands out
about the riot is that you havo dealt a death
blow to the Pinkertou system, and it is
because you have done so tba,t the people
of America— not alone the workingmen—
are with you, and will be lo the bitter end
if you persevere in your steady obedience
to American law and are steadfast to tbe
un-American attempts to wrong you."
lt is rumored to-night that there -»re 50
non-union men in the mill, but both the
Carnegie managers and the strike leaders
deny the statement. A Sre was started iv
one of the hearths to-day, and the sight of
the steam attracted a largo body of
strikers. They made a hasty movement
toward the gate, and the provost patrol
hurriedly intercepted them with their bayo
nets brought to charge and the men halted.
The abrupt manner in which they were
turned back caused considerable feeling.

How I>ifi the Ammunition of tli* f'ovorn

Homestead, July 15.— The strike pickets
are still maintained about the mills and rail
road stations, aud the men are resolved, as
tney have been advised that they are strictly
within their legal rights to request tho new
comers not to work in the mills.
No effort ha* yet been made to gather up
and return the captured Winchester rifles,
of which there are nearly 200 still in town,
together with a large amount of Piakertoa
ammunition. The advisory committee is
anxious to get rid of tin weapons, but seem
to be in doubt about the law of the case,
ami said they were now waiting for their
counsel's opinion.
Geucial Suow*den ami staff have been
making a quiet investigation into the actual
armament of the strikers. It is believed
tbat they have about 2000 stands of arms of

scarce than weapons. The amazing fact is
that much of it is manifestly the property
of the United States Government. Tho

I-ITTSBVRG, July 15.— The situation at

who left are taking matters very coolly.
The minority who were not in favor of the

calmly consider the nature of the step they
bare taken the dissatisfaction will be with
themselves. There will be no attempt to

until then, One hundred mea were sworn

The Keystone Bridge Works, through
lack of material, will Ire closed in a few
days, and it Is also reported that the Lucy
blast furnaces will be shut down. There
will be no sympathy for the strike at Brad
dock. Although there are 3000 men em
ployed in the Edgar Thomson Steel Works,

of them will quit work. Neither will tuerd
he any sympathy with the strike at the

graphed to the superintendent of the Beaver
Falls miii- to Inform the men that unless
they go to Work under their agreement on
Monday m xt tbe company will cancel the
agreement, and when work in resumed it
will be as a non-union concern; that under
no circumstances will the company confer

Lovej.-y of the Carnegie company sail to
day that the employes at the Union mills
having broken their contract by striking,
they would not be allowed to return to
work until the company got ready to re
sume work, and then It would not be at tho
old terms, but on terms to be fixed by the
company. He said tho company could get
enoueh non-union men to run the works at
Homestead in full inside of a week; but it
was only proposed to put in part of the
force in order to allow such of the old men
as wanted to to return.

and if the Amalgamated Union had been less

"The Idaho troubles, following those at

They Are Stopping the Shipment of Gold to
New Youk, July 16.— 1n the last two or
three days six or bight of the big banks
have taken ste; s to do all in their power to
hinder the exports of gold to Europe. The
result has been a radical change in the man
ner in which shippers secure coin to be dis
patched to the other side. The bankers are
acting on the belief that the exportations
have reached a point beyond which it is not
safe for the interests of the country to bo.
Last week the $3,500,000 In gold shipped
came from the treasury free gold, which
amounted to $11,071,257 0n Tuesday. Under
the system heretoforo followed the ex
porters went to their banks, secured it lid
certificates, and, presenting them in turn at
the sub-treasury, obtained the precious
metal in exchange. The effect was, tO all
intents and purposes, to take the gold out of
the banks, not trim tbe treasury. Under
the new plan banks refuse to pay
out gold certificates to representatives
of foreign houses. Instead, they pay
1 iiite.i States notes and treasury notes.
1 be former are payable in gold and the lat
ter la gold or silver at the option of the
Treasury Department So far gold basal
ways been paid for them. The bookers es
timate the free gold at the end of this week
will amount to about $10,000,000, a sum not
by say means satisfactory in the views of
bankers.' January 9, 1892, the free gold in
the treasury amounted to $25, 50 0,523. and
January id, 1891, the amount was J- '.*..- 1-, -.v.
President Henry W. Cannon of the Chase
National Hank had something to say on the
matter of Sherman's bill to stop the pur
chase of -,-00,000 ounces of silver a month.
He regarded it as a very wise move, espe
cially as he understood the Senator had a
financial scheme whicb he proposes to pre
sent in connection with the repeal
ot the act, or to follow it. Tho
repeal would, in his judgment, be beneficial
to tbe prospects for the success of the in
ternational monetary conference. The act
of the banks in refusing to give gold cer
tificates to exporter-, was intended as a
patriotic act. Cannon explained that the
hankers thought the time had come when
the United States should protect it. supply
of gold, as other nations bad protected
theirs, and should throw as many obstacles
in the way of the export of gold as possible,
especially in present conditions, when the
movement of gold abroad did not seem to
be a natural one. The banks have taken
the first step, and hoped the Treasury De-
meat, so lar as the law allowed, would
er>-ct other barriers in the way of gold

Estes en Perishable Exhibits at the World's
CHICAGO, July 15— The Western Traffic
Association came out of Its comatose condi

among which was one relating to transcon
tinental rates for exhibits at the World's
Fair. In view of the laet that many exhib
its that will be made from the coast are not
likely to be returned "after the exposi

ture, the committee of the associa

commodities with the understanding that
each company was to determine for itself

commissioners a) prove the action of the as
sociation, subject to the restriction of the rate

Upon being told by year correspondent
that there was some talk in San Francisco
of taking the matter Into the courts upon
the ground that the San Francisco Super

there any likelihood of such a resort to the
courts, or is it mere newspaper rumors?"
"So far, it is only conjectural, Out the

S.m Francsico citizens.*"
"lv that case," said Mr. Crounse, "it
Bight be well for us to withhold the draft
until we see our way clearly. It would be
embarrassing to have the matter lateen into

London-. July 15.— With 621 of the 670
members of the new House elected interest
in the elections has to a large extent sub
sided. The Liberals may win 5 or 10 more
members, and it is practically certain Glad
stone's majority will be somewhere near 50.
In spite of the bitter fight made on Sir
Charles Dilke by the church people.who op
posed him on moral grounds, he has been
elected to Parliament by a heavy majority
on the Liberal ticket.
The leading subject of gossip is as to
whether Gladstone will venture to offer a
seat in his Cabinet to Sir Charles Dilke. It
is not believed, however, that he will take
the chance of offending the religious feel
ing of the country.
Lord Salisbury has summoned a Cabinet
council for next week to decide whether
the present Government shall meet Parlia
ment or resign forthwith.
The priests are taking an active part In
the elections in Ireland, but not always in
the most pacific spirit. In North Meath a
riot resulted owing to the interference of
one reverend father, in which four police
men and 60 others were wounded. At a late
hour last night the fight was still going on.
Among the prominent Liberals elected
are Michael Davltt, the Irish leader, aud
Joseph Arch, the founder of the National
Agricultural Laborers' Union.

London, July 13.— The Unionists in Mid

district when Gladstone takes office. When
Gladstone again enters the Ministry It will
be necessary for him to resign his seat in
the Honte of Commons and again stand for
election. The Conservatives and Liberal
Unionists, encouraged by the enormous re
duction they made in his majority Wednes
day, think that when he agaiu appeals to the
Midlothian electors they will be able to de
feat him.

London*, July 15.— Official dispatches

East Africa Company in Uganda, in regard
to the religious warfare in tbat country,

rival in Uganda of tho French Bishop, who.
the captain believes, brought the an*
noun-emeu, of the intended withdrawal of
the British forces from Uganda. On the
receipt of this news, Lugard declares, con
tinual aggro-sell by the Catholic faction

Mwauga, leader of the C**raolic party, to

of his soldiers would bo killed. On the fol

mense importance to Uganda, where the
people are devoted to the King. Lugard
offered to reinstate Mwangaand the French
party, be claims, but owing to the intrigues
and lies of the French Bishop, his overtures
were rejected. "Finally," Lugard contin
ues, "we were forced to attack the islands
where the French forces had entrenched
themselves, and after a heavy fight we

Tha Eliza Edwards Has Probably Gine te
Ccco? Island for Buried Treasure.
San* Diego, July 15.— The British steam
.schooner Eliza Edwards has sailed at last.
She was spoken off Corouado Islands, 25
miles south of this city, by the yacht .Santa
Barbara. She was then holding on a south
east course.
The customs officials now believe the
Edwards has gone on a search for the re
ported buried treasure on Cocos Island.
When she arrived here sho had a quantity
of lumber on board. This being in the way
when stores were taken aboard it was en
tered and sold. The captain at first said it
was to be used for building shanties, but
where he did not state.
A lot of tent material, with sufficient
stores to last six months, was purchased
and shipped in Us place, which confirm*
the officials in the belief that Cocos Island
is their true destination.
They are, however, positive that the El
wards landed contraband goods on the Cali
fornia coast. The captain of the steamer
Coos Bay, which was sent down the coast
afer the Edwards, reported on her return
to S »n Francisco that she sighted a strange

But it's what you must prevent,
too. And Dr. Pierces Golden Med-
ical Discovery prevents as well as
cures. It invigorates the liver and
kidneys, purities and enriches the
blood, sharpens the appetite, im-
proves digestion, and restores health
and strength. For Dyspepsia,
" Liver Complaint," and every form
of Scrofulous, Skin, or Scalp Dis-
eases, as -rheum, Tetter, Ery-
sipelas, or any blood-taint, it's an
unequaled remedy.
It's not like the earsaparillas,

At all seasons alike, and in all cases,
the " Discovery " alone is guaran-
teed. If it doesn't benefit or cartv

matter how many doses are offered
for a dollar, for you pay only for <
the good you pet. But it's __•
