TROOPS IS POSSESSION. Colonel Carliu Says the Backbone of the Trouble Is Broken. BIKERS FLYIXG 15 EVERY DIRECTION There Will _. li Compromise and Firry Tlcmkr of the Miners' I'nion Will Be Plated Under Arrest. Special to The Morning Cam. Wallace, Idaho, July 16.— The feature ol to-day was the arrests of union men. There are troops now in every camp. Ward Wallace, Mullan, Murray, Os borne, Burke and Gem are all hei i by troips. Five companies of the Second Infantry from Fort Keogh, Mont., have arrived at Mullati, the most desperate point in the country, and are under the direct command of Colonel Carlin, as are the forces at Wardner. Captain Bubb commands the forces at Gem and Burke, the camps being three miles apart. Captain Stevenson ol the State militia holds Osborne. The negro troops are at Murray in camp 18 mile, from the railroad. Last night the local Grand Army post took up arms and commenced making ar rests under command of A. O. Ingalls. Ingalls is commander-in-chief of this Grand Army of the Republic of Idaho, and re ceived orders from Marshal Piukham to act. He is assisted by Albert Ott, post com mander and adjutant-general of the State. Their forces were L. M. Parker, li. M. Cooper. Ed Doyle. L. W. Scrivner and Charles Tilden. These old veterans are well organized, end did good service for the count They made sever-! arre.!., put ting their prisoners in the vacant houses. A large party of strikers started to release their imprisoned comrades, but the bold front of the veterans bluffed out the strik ers. Colonel Carlin this morning dispatched tro 'PS to relieve the gallant Grand Army men, and the people in this country are ready to take off their hats to a Grand Army badge. This morning 96 union men In the Poor man and Tiger mines at Burke were ar rested a. they camp off the shift, and were rushed down in their working clothes to the prison at Wallace. The shilt working the second shaft will next be arrested. The men were working quietly but belonged to the union, and every union man in the Coeur d'Alenes is regard. as an accomplice iv the Fourth of July Canyon massacre and other outrages. There will be no compromise. Every man who has taken the oath of the union must leave thecountry or be arrested. Peter ßreen, who, with G. Dal as, repre sented the Montana unions, has fled. Breen was prominent as a leader rd unions, and is a member of the Montana Legislature. It" is said that he is still a subject of Queen Victoria, but he i. a member of the Legis lature just the same, so strong are the miners' unions in Montana. Scouting parties start out soon to scour the hills. Five miles from here, up Placer Greek, 50 strikers are fortified, at an old placer camp. They have plenty of pro visions and ammunition. A prospector brought in the news. Similar patties are In every gulch where running water can be had. For four mouths the unions have pre pared for this trouble and have established provisioned camps all through the moun tains. Among the men arrested at Mullan was Judge Eraser, a justice of the peace, and an anarchist agitator, who has long ex erted an evil influence. He was a leader of the strikers ami a correspondent fur several newspapers. W. A. Steele, a hotel proprie tor. to other agitator, and ... Harsh, the postmaster. Is also an agitator. None of them were members of the union, but they ■re men who, for selfish motives, aided and _.b«-tted_the acts of violence. The hills are filled with strikers com pletely* disorganized. President O'Brien, the arch enemy of law and order, is a pris oner here, and the strikers have no leader, and no hope unl*-.s they are re-enforced from Montana. Every approach to Coeur d'Alene has been guarded to prevent this and to arrest the fleeing striker*. Colonel Carlin says tl'.e backbone of the trouble is broken and in another day, if the arrests continue, there will be more prisoner, than troops in Cceur d'Alene. 'lire prisoners will soon be shipped to Boise City to await the action of the Fed eral authorities. HE-ENFORCED JKO.H MONTANA. The Miners May Yet .11 alter io Force for a Fight. Wallace, Idaho, July 15.— N0 more ar rests were made at Burke to-night, the night shifts on tbe Burke and Poormans mines, taking alarm, not reporting for duty. As many as cud are escaping the guards and joining the strikers in the mountains. Fully low strikers are still at large, camped in gulches not yet penetrated by the troops. Ninety were camped in Revenue Gulch, five miles north east cf Wallace, until to-day and provisions were brought to them ou packhor.es from Mullan until the troops occupied that camp. They moved to-day toward Thompson Pails in order to be near the Northern Pacific Railroad so as to get supplies. Fifty-five hundred armed miners, ail union nieu, have come into the mountains within the past few days to re-enforce their brethren, and all brought guns in their blankets. This swells the strikers' forces to a formidable extent and gives rise to dire foreboding. Deputy United States Marshal iiular.s represents Governor Wil ley in Canyon Creek. One .hundred and fifty troops are holding Gem and Burke to-night. Ninety-one rifles were smuggled out of Burke tins morning, and taken up the gulch to the strikers in hiding in the mountains. When the miners were taken from work to-day there were affecting scenes at the trains. Many of them.were married and had families, and the women and children clung to their husbands and fathers, weeping. The sight moved even the stern soldiers, but murder had been committed no' 100 yards from the scene of this weeping. Prop erty had been blown up with dynamite, and these men were accomplices by being •mem bers of the union that sanctioned them. -sheriff Cunningham will be arrested and charged witu malfeasance in office. The sentiment is strong against him, and he is strongly suspected of having stood in with the strikers. Jack Wait and Joe Campbell, his two main deputies, resigned a day or two before the trouble broke out. The office of Sheriff has been a subject of re proach here for some lime ana no one could be elected unless he stood in with the miner., drank with them and overlooked their lov.ir.ss. The citizens of Cceur! d'Alene want a permanent garrison located here. The project will be agitated, too, and there is a strong s-ibility lhat it will go through. One hundred and fifty prisoners are crowded into three houses here to-night near Colonel Theaker's camp at the mouth oi Placer Creek on the outskirts of the camp. Jt is difficult to find accommoda tion, for them. Some disposition will be made of them soon, as the troops are over worked as it ib now. IT IS an in.l. kkkcth.n.

Wallace, Idaho, July 16.— T0-night 1000 United States troop* guard the Coeur d'Alene mining district, and martial law in Shoshone County is fully established. Where was formerly fit -ion and «-xcite ment is now quiet and order, and there Is heard the steady tramp of the military. Ar rest- Lave been continued all day, and in all about 400 union miners and citizens are now held as prisoners throughout the dis trict. Colonel Tc.caker of tie Fourteenth United States Infantry is in command hero in Wallace. Under his control he has seven companies of 40 men each, and he is ex pecting re-enforcements. Confined in build about his head quarters are 200 prisoners, including those brought from Burke. Q inrter_ for these prisoners are limited and it is feared that it will be impossible to fin sleeping accom modations for them. Colonel Tne.iker says that they are th« State's prisoners and that the Slate must provide for them. lit- ports from the entire district say that the miners submitted quietly to arrest. Some of them hare gone to the hills, but all the regular exits are closely guarded and their only escape is by very hard travel over the St. Joe range into Northern Montaua. It is thought, however, that hunger will drive them back into tba valley, where they will be compelled to surrender. Van B. de Lashiuutt, one of the mine owners, stated to an Associated Press re porter to-night that most of the non-union moil driven out of Warded, were returned to-day and that it is quite probable that the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mines will be starlet} up again next week. The Sierra Nevada; at Gardner, will start up with ne riy the same force as be fore the trouble. The Granite miners, who were trie last to be driven out, did not go very far. They have nearly ail returned, and will resume work next Monday. CABUUi-l ACTS API'KOVED. General Be_.a_.e_i_ Says That lie Uuder- Mood Ills ituslne.a.

Analysis of the Results of the British Elections. There Is Son . Surprise That lite Liberal Uni.ci.ts Should Have Shown .left Very Re- K.r_a_le Vitality. -peci-l to The Ko__irlsre C____ New TOBJE, June IG.— Smalley's letter to the Tiibuno from London says: There ha. been a very considerable Changs of scene since the end of last we» k. The English boroughs had then declared by a large ma jority for Salisbury and union, and though it was not believed that this preponderance could be maintained the best judges on both sides still thought that the final majority for Gladstone and home rule would be small. It, now promises to be toward 50. the actual known majority this morning being 40. The net Gladstonian gains in the Eng lish untie, up to this morning are no less than 29. Tho net gain in the English boroughs was __. giving a total net Glad stonian gain of _.'>. The Unionist majority in England. Including tne counties and rough?, Is 75. The Gladstonian majority in Wales is 20, and in Scotland _'.' The Unionist majority in the whole of Great Britain is 26, and the hone rule majority in Ireland 46, These fi_ure. bring out clearly the true nature of the con test and its result. Ireland gives the casting vote in her own favor, which she has the clear constitutional right to do. 'I lie total of votes cast throughout the kingdom thus far sheer an anti-Unionist majority of nearly 200,000. This would, per haps disappear if the votes in the uncon tested counties could bo counted. No feature in the election Is more remark able than the vitality of those Liberal- Unionists who were to have been extin guished. They now number 121 The General It. -nil. The returns for the House as a whole are now in for all but 49 seats, many of which will b-* known to-day. Not men than six of the remaining scats are thought doubt ful. It is, therefore, possible to consider the general result of the election as pretty well settled. * It is settled in Ireland, also, where the SBti-Parnellltei have made good their pre dictions and beaten the Parnellites hand somely. They stand 59 to 8. The changes in Ireland, Scotland and Wales during the week have not been numerous nnd weald not, of themselves, have given Gladstone a majority. Ills return to offic. i-, having re gard to the state of matters leal Saturday, the work of the agricultural laborers. It is Ur dge who has made him, for the fourth time, Prima Minister. It is the bucolic con stituents which have overruled the urban. Tlie net result of this long struggle is, ns shown above, to leave Gladstone wholly de pendent ou the Irplh support. It need not be supposed that he regret* it. lie has changed his mind since, in lW9b\ he pealed to the rest of the United Kingdom to give him a majority independent of Ireland in order that he might settle the Irish ques tion In a manner most conducive to the general Interests of the kingdom. He di lated during this campaign on the gener osity of the Irish. He extolled the spirit of concession they have shown, and their read iness to take what they, could get instead of demanding impossible liberties. Field's i». Hiu. The death of Cyrus W. Field is widely felt here end sincerely lamented. He had also an English reputation springing from his great services to this country, not less than his American reputation, and the English pay dun homage to his genius, his courage, his splendid faith in his idea and iv himself, and to the unconquerable te nacity with which he pursued his work. EXl'KlUllNti HUME EULE. Gladstone Will liar* the Full Consent of III* rty. London, July 16.— The tone of the Lib eral executive to-night is entirely altered as regards the proposed delay of the home rule bill, probably inspired by the com munication they received. They now as sert that Gladstone will have the full approval of the party in expediting home rule. Justin McCarthy, leader if the anti- Parneihtes, who was defeated in London derry a few days ago, much to the delight of the Parnellites, was elected yesterday in the Perth division Of Longford. Sir Wilfred Lawson, an advanced Radi cal, who lavor. the disestablishment of the church, the abolition of the House of Lords and the doing away with standing armies, has been elected in Cockermouth division of Cumberland. He is also a radical temper ance advocate. The returns now show that the Govern ment has elected 310 members and the oppo sition 'I-..

The scourge is raging with extreme virulence among the workiuginou of Tsaritzin, where many have died 24 hours after being at tacked.

The Kaiser 111 Suddenly Become Extremely Discreet. cm >»•_»•--#, __oe. by th* New .c. a*, -..-te •*; rr< " ,s * li I Beiii.i>*, July 16.— Since starting out on I bis journey to tie north the Emperor has j instructed Yon Caprivi to ignore the Bis marck controversy. Although a day does not pass without tba Prince's organs mak ing a fresh attack on ihe Government the semi-official press remains silent; and a ma jority of the other papers follow this digni led example. The quiescent attitude of the Government will cease, however, should Bismarck carry out his design to continue the agitation through Germany by giving hero and there expressions hostile to the Emperor's policy. All Bismarck's old col leagues ;>r«- trying to induce him to discon tinue the agitation, and they are assisted by the family circle. The Government's relations with the Vat ican continue to improve. The acquittal at Cleves of a Jew butcher named Bu.choff, accused of murdering a Christian child, i.a blow to the anti-Semitic agitation. The leading Catholic organs, however, still maintain that the Talmud encourages human sacrifice. The failure of the prosecution in the liuschoff case does not deter the leaders of the Judenhetz from actively continuing the movement. The Conservatives also seem to he tending toward the adoption of anti-Semitism among the main planks of the party plat form unless they may be deterred by the popular reaction arising from the liuschoil affair.

City of Mexico, July IS.— The action of the Mexican Government in its movement toward confiscating the property of the Catholic church in this country can be ap preciated in a degree when it is known to what absurd extremes the ignorant Mexican officials will go on some occasion;. Some days ago at Torreou, on the Mexican Central Railway, a man was brought to the station ail cut and hacked to pieces. He had been taken for a conjurer and was being punished fo: causing the severe drought there last year. This, however, is not a marker to what was done at Castaaas a few days ago. In the department of Castanai there had been no rain for nearly a year and people were brought to such a pass that they were actually dying of thirst, to say nothing of the total destruction of all crops and other .cultural industries. El Pueblo Catolico of New San Salvador prints a number of resolutions promulgated by the principal Alcalde of the town and Department of Cas tanas. They are as follows: Con-dtieriiig that the Supreme Creator has not behaved well Id this province, as iv i tie whole of last year only oue shower ol rain fell. lhat in this summer, notwithstanding all Hie pioces . ioir«, prayers and prai. es. It has not rained at all, and consequently the crops of aaaa. on winch depends the prosperity of the -hub. de l ailment, are entirely luuied, It Is decreed: Article I— lf within ;;ie peremptory period ot eight days from the dale of mis decree rain does no. fall abundantly no one will go to mass or say prayers. Article 11— If the drought continues eight days more t ... churches and chapels shall be binned, ami missals, rosaries and other objects of devo tion Will be destroyed. Article 111— If. -tally, In a third period of eight days it .shall not ram alt the priests, filar-, nuns and saints, male and female, will be be headed, ana for the present permission Is given for the commission of all sons of sins In older that lhe Siipienr- Creator may understand with whom he has to deal. The must remarkable feature of this affair is the fact that four days after these reso lutions were passed the heaviest rainfall known for years was precipitated on tho burning community.
