OVERWHELMED BY FIRE. The Island of Sangir Destroyed by a Yolcanie Eruption. twelve THOUSAND people PERISH. 1 Story of Awful Calamity Brought From the South Seas by the Crew of the Ship Cattcrthun. Special to The Morning Call. I.omx'H, July 17.— The steamer Catter tbun, which has arrived at Sydney, New South Wales, reports that when she touched at the Island of Timor there was a rumor current that the island of Sangir. in the Malay Archipelago, had been destroyed by a volcanic eruption, and that the whole population, comprising 12,000 persons, had perished. The Catterthun steamed for hours through masses of volcanic debris. fefjCW YOKX, July 17.— Further details of the disaster received hero from London point to the disaster at Saneir a3 probably the most awful of modern time*, even ex ceeding in horror the great Java earth quake. Natives from Talatinz who landed at Selangen four weeks ago brought a story to the effect that several other natives who bad returned to Selanza from a voyage near Saugirsaid they were prevented from laud ing by the sight of mountains belching forth •moke and fire. They reported that the whole island was on fire. The water along the coast was full of balf-burned wreckage, pieces of houses and charred bodies. Articles of head-dress in the wreckage were identified by a sailor on the steamer Cat terthun, who had lived in the l'hillippine Islands, as peculiar to the natives of San- Kulr and nearby islands of the Philippine group. The ship was passing through the wreckage from 10 A M. to 1:30 p. M. Sangir, or Sanguir as it Is sometimes called, is, or rather was, if the rumor is true, an island situated in the Malay Archi pelago, about midway between the islands of Celebes and Mindana, In latitude 3 de»?. 28 niin. N. and longitude 125 deg. 44 niin. E. It was about 30 miles long, wits an average breadth of 10 miles. Its surface was moun tainous generally and in its center was an active volcano. PALACIO IN PAIUS. The Fugitive Bears H:s Martyrdom With Bemarkable Fortitude. New Youk, July 18.-Tne Herald's Bor deaux cable bas this: Rainiounde ludueza Palacio, ex-President of Venezuela, set foot on French soil yesterday. Even to his de feated ambition there is n gulden solace with fifteeu millions iv his c< ff rs. 4< l havo been almost his constant com panion fir U.e past two days, and the conclusion I Lave come to is that if Palacio is a political martyr he bears his martyrdom with more than Spartan fortitude, smoking cigars such as only a millionaire or an ex president of a South American republic can afford, aud drinking braudv cocktails witn a re 1 i « h apparently unaffected by the thought of his country. lie seems to quite enjoy martyrdom. "It was aboard the French Transatlantic Company steamer Labrador that the exiled President came to France, accompanied by his wife, son, daughter, niece and suit, in cluding two secretaries and the editor of Opinion Nacionale of Caracas. The party boarded the Labrador at de Franco, whither Sen<:r Palacio lih<l been conveyed from La qnayra by the Ven.zuela nian-.f-war at Santander, the first European port touched at by the Labrador I met tne steamer. "1 never wished to be dictator," he said, "and 1 never wisht-d to remain in power a single day longer than I believed the necessities of the country demanded. I am going away because I am told it is for the good of the country, to prevent the shedding of my countrymen's blood. The whole thing is a question of pure politics and a question of constitutional reform. There is no personal question and my enemies lie when they say such is the case. "What I wanted was simply to divide the country into 20 States, as was the case for merly, instead of ouly nine, as the division is at present, bo as to have the President elected by a direct vote of tlw» people. By a small majority Congress was opposed to this." THE MARCH OP DEATH. Btill the Dread Cholera Stalks Toward Wes- tern Europe St. Petersburg, July 17.— Six cases of cholera have arrived at Kazah by steamer np to July 14, and of the six patients five have died. There have been 13 cases aud 13 deaths at Azoff. London, July 17. —The Standard's Vienna correspondent says that a woman died of a suspicious disease In Trieste, and the doctors are unable to decide whether it is Asiatic cholera or a mild form of disease that killed her. Several cases resembling cholera have occurred in a Kouinauian village near the Servian frontier. BEKLiy. July 17.— Private advices from Russia say that the distress in tbe famine districts and the mortality in the cholera stricken dties far exceeds anything allowed to appear in the Russian press. The fact that orders for disinfectants and medicine have been received by the German firms, which the trade i* unable to meet, testifies to the alarm in Russian official circles. GOING BACK ON BISMARCK. His Hewipaper Organs Becopnirs the Futility of Their Fieht. London, July 17.— The Berlin corre spondent of the Times telegraphs to the paper as follows in regard to. the B smarck controversy: Bismarckian organs are begin ning to recognize that their grand attack on the Government lias failed. The Deutsches Wehaeublatt, the Bismarck paper, sums up a long appsal for pea^e and good will with an allusion to the right of clemency as the noblest ornament of the crown. Then Prince Bismarck, who has always asserted that he had done no wrong and has nothing to regret or withdraw, is classed by his own friends among those for whom the mercy of the crown can be invoked. It may be assumed that the worst of tbe fight is over. Bonth African Revolt. Berlin, Ju'y 17.— A dispatch to the Tageblatt from Zanzibar reports that the natives of Yanyembe have revolted and threaten the German forces. The rumor is of serious import, as in case <>l a revolt the important station of Tabora will be in danger. The French Representative. Paris. July 17.— Senator Baron de Cour eelles, formerly French ambassador to Washington, has been appointed French arbitrator on the Bering Sea Aibitration Commission. The arbitrators will meet in Paris next week. A DANGEROUS EXPERIMENT. Gladstone May Be Compelled to Take Office at 0n«. Loxi>on, July 17.— A1l the Cabinet Min isters have been summoned to London for Thursday next. Lord Salisbury went to Windsor yesterday for ad/nfereuce with her M jest and returned to London this even ing. It is expected that some develop ments of an unwonted character are im pending. It is stated that one section of the Cabinet want Salisbury to resign forth with in order to force Gladstone to meet the Douse of Commons with a full disclosure of hi* home rule and general policy, and so to precipitate ft crisis. Tile Liberal ieaders*ire prepared to take office immediately or to aw lit the defeat of the Government on araeudm>bU -to the ad dress. No tactics the present G'.vernuient will adopt can force the hand of Gladstone. A conference of Gladstone and his col leagues Is expected to take place on Thurs day. Among tbo troubles menacing the The Morning Call. new Government is the! habit the Irish members have of irregulnr attendance. If the practice Is continued the absence of some 40 Irish members will render the Gov ernment liable to defeat any moment. If the American subscriptions are freely continued during the final crisis the home rule party will be wonderfully heartened and strengthened. The resources of the Unionists are inex haustible compared with those of the Liberals. Though It is learned that assur ances have been obtained by the Liberal executive committee that wealthy Glad stoniuns are ready to respond to any de mands regarding the coming crisis in Par liament, at least a month must elapse be fore the actual business of the House begins. If this is followed by a change of government Gladstone may take time forth with to form his Ministry, the member* of which may require re-election, and the Lib erals tims calculate that it will be October before the new Government can be called upon to present Parliament with Its pro gramme. It is probable that Gladstone will not begin the work of legislation in the win ter session, but will postpone it until next spring. The number of members thus far re turned is 83%, leaving it yet undecided. The Opposition combined D ambers 342, and the Unionists 310. Of the 18 seats yet un returned, seven Irish and six British In the late Pailiament are held by the Opposition and five by the Unionists. As change* are extremely unlikely, the new Parliament will probably consist of 355 Gladstouians and 315 Unionists. NEWTON BOOTH BURIED.

Tie services at the Cougrega tional church were conducted by the Rev. J. li. Stlcix and were very impressive.

In revert ing to his career he denominated him as a man of great versatility and moral force. In his political career he brought to the State talents of the highest order.

IKMPTfcD BY A UEMIOOST. lwo Colored Barbers Engage in a Disgrace ful Bow at Sacramento. Sacramento, July 17.— Three hightoned colored barbers employed in the Golden Eagle barber-shop went out on a spree this afternoon in a boggy. In the evening they saw a nice lot of chickens roosting in a yard near the baseball grounds at,d after dark drove by there. One of the. men, named W. Morton, got out and was doing something that caused the chickens to squawk, which aroused the owner, Robert Bellman. He ran out and grappled with Morton, who began slashing him with a knife or razor, when G. H. Haye«. an other barber, ran to Morton's aid. They bad Hellman down and was carving him energetically when Herman's boy ran out with a pistol and shot Hayes In the arm, shattering the bone and disabling bun. Moiton had his left arm nearly cut off, pre sumably by his own weapon, (hiring the struggle with Hellman. Burkhardt, the other barber, got his companions into the bugzy and drove into town, where all were arrested. They were covered with blood from head to foot. Hellman was slashed across the right hand, cut on the thigh aud the calf of the leg, and has a severe contusion about the eye, where he was probably kicked. His little boy fought hard for him. After emptying the pistol at his father's assail ants he seized a club and went at them. TO USC'AI'U L.YNCHING. Eeed, the Idaho Murderer, Brought to Wal lace for Safe Keepine. Wallace, July is.— A detachment of troops went to Murray to-day and brought Frank X ed, the murderer of K. W. Ste vens, to Wallace for safe keeping, as threats of lynching were beard on all hands, and a well-organized mob had planned to attack the jail to-night. Further particulars of the shooting of Stevens show that llyman Wolf, who owns a mining claim adjoining Reed*, requested the United Mates Deputy Mineral Purveyor, George B. Tiask, of Wallace to survey his < laim. Rued heard of this and looked for Wolf. On going into a saloon he saw Trask. Wolf saw Keed coming and bid himself. Keed asked Trask where Wolf was. Tra>k ie plied he did not knew. Reed said, " you, you do ; I'll kill you," and nulled out a revolver and shot nt Trask, who threw his head aside. The ball grazed his mustache, and the bullet intended for him li dsed in the nead of Robert W. Stevens, who was immediately behii.d. Retd was immediately arrested and placed in jail. Stevens' Ui-ly wili be shipped to his parents in lowa, for burial. Reed is a desperate man and is saiu to have shot a number of men in Arizona aud Nevada. CHINESE BLOCK BUHNED.

SHOT DOWM LIKE WOLVES. The Story of the Mission Massacre Gradually Coming Out EYES THE WOUSDED HE! H DAXGER. Oncers or the Hospital at Wallace Frustrate At tempts to Enter the Plate and Dispatch the Suffering Xon-Union Miners. ■ Special to The Morning* Calx. Wallace, Idaho, July 17.— John Abbott, the man who was shot in the fight at Old Mission, now lies in a critical condition at the hospital here. On a cot near by lies his father with a ghastly wound in his hip. The elder Abbott was shot in the battle at Gem. Young Abbott will scarcely pull through. lie was shot with a Winchester through the right breast, the ball pene trating his lung. lie made a statement toS night to The Call correspondent, although he was very weak, gasping for breath and doubled up with pain. He said: "We were sitting around waiting for the boat to come along when men ran up to us saying, Vet out, you , or we will kill your We started to run. Armed men rushed out from every rail road - car and clump of brush, and one id an on horseback shot mo and I fell. Fully 20 men were a hootinc at us. The man on the horse had a mustache and a short, stubby beard. While the other armed men weredriving us into the meadow the man on the horse ran ahead and headed us off. I saw six men shot down. I saw them fall. After the armed men had driven my companions out of sight I got up and started Back to the landing. 1 passed one man lying by n tree and 1 spoke to him, but he did not move. I couldn't get him up, and, as I supposed he was dead, I left hint." Official news was received to-night that two men, robbed MM) wounded, stripped of their clothing and almost naked, had arrived at Wolfe Lodge, near the middle of Fourth of July Cinyon. They toll a pitiful tale of the mass ere. They lay that between the O'd Mission and Wolfe I indgfl are lying fully II men wounded or dead. The most fiend ish barbarities were practiced. The entire < (Pur d' Alene country is aghast at the massacre and tie affair has beet) the death blow to the Miners' Union in toil re gion. Two men were taken Irani the. hospital and placed in prison. They had been iden tified as the men who placed the dynamite in Penstock Hint blew up the Frisco null. The hospital authorities aie very strict. Frequent attempts are made by the. union null to slip into the. hospital to finish the killing of the n-uni<in miners wound.-. lat Gem, and several plots to do this have al ready been frustrated. Charles J. Peterson, one of the men wounded at Gem, will die. He was struck on the head and his skull fractured by the buttend of a Winchester rili-j after he had surrendered to the strikers. Charles Smidt was jumped on by half a dozen men, kicked and braised, and his face jabbed with the sharp steel miner's candle stick?. Similar hideous stories of barbari ties are mine known d lily. To-night affairs are in the hands of the troops, and martial raw will prevail for fully six months. Though the militia may be sent back home soon the. regulars will remain until anarchy has been completely stamped out and until the mines are all run nine and employers are sale to hire whom they wish. President O'Brien is in prison here with ISO of his men, and three Justices of the Peace, sympathizers ■■<! agitators, are with O'Brien in prison. Although a prisoner, O'Brien i- still the, ruler of his men, and when rations Hie bruusbt In the prisoners all stand back until he hpportions out the the food. His word is still law and his fol lowers would, unarmed as they are. attack Colonel Thuker's command of 280 regulars if O'Brien gave the word. In fact if O'Brien were out in the. mountains his power for bam would be worse in the uosui d'Alenes than hu active volcano. riVE DEAD r.nli!^, That Wan the Number Fonad la Fourth of .July Canyon. Spokane, July 17.— A Sunday quiet harms over tlie Coeur d'Alenes to-day. The arrest of miners continue*, and several hundred are now huddled in the school house?, empty warehouses and baseball 6tockades. They are closely guarded, and cannot hope to escape. Thn troops have not captured any of (he rifles or ammunition of the btrikers, which are hidden in the sur rounding hills, and a number of leading spirits in the Insurrection are still at large. Among these are Brean and Dallas, who came bare from Uutto to direct the campaign. It is reported that the Montana unions are highly in dignant at the way the fight has been carried on, claiming Hint Breen and Dallas have, set back their cauie for years. Other leaders still at large ere Petti bone, Horn, Tobin and Sweeney. EL S. Scott, special correspondent of the Review, who came in to-night from the front, says that he was informed by the officers at Cataldo that it was a positive fact that five dead bnnies and a number of wounded men were picked up in Fourth of July Canyon. Scott is the man who was ordered out of Wallace because his paper denounced the outrages. Very few of the lleeing strikers ore com ing this way. Mo*t of them are passing over lie Bitter Koot Mountains Into Mon tana, here the union is .strong mid where they can find Rid and shelter. Two, how ever. w«re arrested here to-night aud booked on a charge of murder at the police station. This charge will be preferred against every fugitive who In caught. Large numbers of frightened non-union men are gathered here. They huddle to gether, and seem to be dazed over their ■ rough experience, but arc will. to go bao.K to work as soon as quiet has been re stored. It is the general impression both in the Cu-ur dA tones and here that a per manent garrison ought to be maintained right in the mines. Unless that is done that section during the next year will be the theater of many dark and bloody crimes of vengeance. IT NKEDKD MUZZLING. Fret* Censomlilp In the Country of the t'Oßiir d \i»: ■ 4 Wallace, Idaho, July 17.— This place is quiet to-day as a New England village upon a summer Sabbath, and the sound of the church bell* mingles strangley with the bugle-calls of the troopers. Colonel Thaker's forces were reinforced last night by two companies of the Twenty second Infantry from Mullane, under com mand of Colonel Page. Thaker has more prisoners now than men, and consequently has sent no force ur» Placer Creek canyon to attack the strikers fortified at the old placer camp there. There is one more important arrest yet to be made here, that of Adam Aulbactie, the editor of an incendiary paper, the Wallace Press. Atilbache is held responsible for a good part of this trouble, file Is an old man, with the face of an anarchist, and every Issue of his paper is filled with matter of the most blood-thirsty sort. lie has be- arrested before for inciting tho miners to riot, but it will be n far more serious matter this time. Late last night Aulbache met Colonel Carlin and Inspector-General Cur tis on the street, and Curtis said: "Anlbache, you are a murderer." . The man began an incendiary harangue, when Colonel Carlin took him by the arm and said: "Mr. Aulbache, you go home and stay there.": • The feeling against Aulbache is extremely bitter, as ho is regarded as the most dan gerous man in the Coour d'Alene, and he will soon be in ttie guard-house with his fellow-worker. President O'Brien. Ills paper, the organ of anarchy here, will soon be heard from no longer. No plea can be made on his behalf of "muzzling the press." The Press, owned by Aulbache, requires muzzling. It has the worst lorin of rabies. AN EXODUS OF STRIKKItS. Believed to Be Getting Out of the Conn try Very Rapidly. Burke, Idaho, July 17.— There are but few strikers left In the camp at the head of Placer Creek Canyon. Deputy Unlt&i .States Marshal Hennane returned irom Wallace to-day on a special train with the i Twenty-second United, States Infantry, and the canyon was scoured by the troops all the way up to its head. Only one man was arrested, and that was at Gem. 'Scouts, however, > ring in the intelligence, that there Is a camp of strikers in a gulch four miles west of town, and that they are well pro visioned and armed. All of the night shift of the Tiger and Poorman mines remaining here will be taken back to Wallace, and there is no fear of an attack from them. It is feared now that an exodus of strikers is taking place by wny of Ghdden's pass, which is a continuation of the eanvon, to Thompsons Falls. There are mill a great number in the country though, and the troops in Mullnne last night could see the gleam of their campfires all about the place on the surroundiiiE mountains. The work of making at rests it proceeding with great deliberation. A Deputy United States Marshal marches through the camp and "spots" a striker. Then the troops seize him and he la marched away without a thought of resistance. Much indignation is expressed hero at the Incendiary utterances of great popular leaders of inn country, and the universal sentiment among peace-loving citizens of the ( (cur d'Aleues is that Senator Palmer is a demagogue of the same stripe as Aur baehe and Judge Frazer. Palmer's speech in the United States Senate on the Home stead strike is much quoted, every striker having it by heart, and the sentiments ex pressed in that speech are regarded as very largely responsible for the outbreak here. A mac*Stne had been prepared in Canyon Creek by Use agitators, anarchists and the lax administration of the Sheriff's office. It required only th» spark from Homestead to cause the explosion. BIEN* OF FAMILY. What Will It* the Fate of the Striker* Now Under Armt? Wallace, July 17.— The, western part of Wallace at the mouth of Placer Creek Can yon is now a tented field. Eight companies of troops arrived from Fort Keogh, Mont, to-day, and will be distributed in various portions of the mining district. The entire command here whs suddenly called to arms at 11 o'clock to-day to search the neighboring hills in the hope of captur ing miners who have been in biding. Six were Hrre>ted as a result of the raid. Many of the miners under arrest are married and have families, and to-day a launder of their wives aid children were seen about the camp seeking the i rivilege to speak to the bead of the family, who was held pris oner. In must instances this privilege was granted. It is probable that the entire body of min ers under :«rrest will he tried In the United States District Court for contempt, though some of the prisoners will have to answer to the charge of murder. WOIIK OF CU.NGULSS. The Session Is Believed to Be Drawing Rapidly to a Close. Washington, July 17.— Everybody Is anxious to get away from the Capitol, and the common expectation is that the session will end on next itur lay or the following Monday. Members will make a last des perate effort lo secure action on their favorite bill, but in both Houses every thing mu«t give way to the appropriation bills, for the word has gone out that the session will end as soon, as they are dis posed of. The sundry civil, fortifications and general deficiency appropriation bills remain to be ac ed upon. The only serious controversy looked for is in connection with the World's Fair appropriations in the sundry civil MIL In the intervals between the considera tion of the conference report the Senate w ill resort to the calendar, and the friends of the anti-option bill intend to try to pass that measure, or at least to debate it. To-morrow heine suspension day in the . House, an effort will be made to call up from the Committee on Merchants ond Ma rines the bill to repeal the present ship sub sidy law. The attempt to pass the bill tinder a suspension of the ruins will find general support on the Democratic side. On Tuesday the Senate's World's Fair amendments to the sundry civil bill will be considered. Probably the report of the Pension Office Investigating committee will i>n made the special order for Wednesday. A' lion on the conference report, how ever, will take up a considerable portion of the week. An adjournment resolution will probably be brought in during the week, and after the data is fixed the last days of lh« session will be drvotKd to conference reports and the passage el measures under suspension of the ruled.

Millmen Preparing for a Long and Bitter Fight THEY Cil HOLD OUT FIVE YEARS. Carnegie Cannot Me the Kickel Steel Plates With cut the Hen Who Have Been Forced Oat of Bis Hills. SpecUi to The Morning Call. Homestkad, July 17.— A1l is quiet on the Monongahela and it has been a most quiet Sund ty. The new meu are confidently ex pected before the formal opening of the works on Thursday, but the striku leaders do not believe that any of them will be in troduced until after it is seen how many ap plications fur work are made by the old men. That some will return to work is quite certain. A mass-tneoting of the men In the me chanical department and the day laborers was held this morning. The men are not | members of the Amalgamated Association, but havH been in sympathy with it. At the 'meeting a resolution was adopted saying that they were In sympathy with the Amal gamated Association and pledging to sup port them to the end and denouncing it as an injustice and an insult to ask them to work under guard. This mmi that the repair work, which was to have gun tc-morrow, will not be undertaken by the old men and the new will have to be. brought in if the company proposes to reopen the works on Thursday. It is impossible to untangle all the con tradictory stories being told about the new men. They are reported as coming from many different points but after the rumors are sifted there is found to be no truth in them. Some of the pilgrims are expected to-night, but the chances MM to be that they will not come.

PiTTsnuno, July 17. — Affairs In the neighborhood of the upper and lower Union mills are assuming a serious phase. Skilled mechanics are endeavoring to induce the workmen to quit, and in numerous cases the latter have declared that they would. A secret conference of the amalgamated workmen and laboring men was held in Union Ball this afternoon, but it was impossible to learn the result. It is safe to B:iv that none of the strik ers will accept the ooaiß*iiy*t invita tion to return to work. The men hold that they will remain tii in to the list, and that the mills will n*ver be operated by n .n-union men. They are confident of winning, and claim that there are not enough skilled men in the country to fill the vacancies in the various plants now idle. There is an unconfirmed rumor to the effect that the Order of Railroad Trainmen would join the light, and that a meeting would be called to decide nether they would handle Carnegie's output if non union men are employ. d. WHAT STEEL COSTS. The rroflti Made by the Mlllg of Carnegie At lli.mi-BtrHil. Pittsburg, July 17.— A Sunday paper says that when the congressional com mittee held its investigation itschief object was to discover the exact amount expended in the manufacture of a ton of steel. Frick refused to answer the question on that point, and although the Homestead work men did all that was possible to obtain the I figures, it was without result. The greatest i caution was exercised to prevont the publication of the figures, but the cost of making a ton of basic open he h and acid open hearth was secured. The official figures were taken right from the books of Carnegie, riiii>p< & Co. of December 28, UK. There follows a lengthy itemized statement, which shows the total cost of acid open hearth per ton to be 526 93 and the total con of a ton of basic open hearth to be $24 41. The paper, analyzing the statement, says that at that time acid open hearth steel was selling at & >5 per ton. The cost of production would be $26 98, but to be just it is necessary to enumerate the ex pense attached to rolling a ton of add open hearth Into plates and also the cost In the 6labbing-mill, and- that the total cost' of one ton therefore reaches £41, giving Carnegie & Co. a profit per ton of 14 exactly. The figures of the Haste opan hearth show that a ton would net a profit of something like 816. Since December, 18S9, the minimum basis dropped from $30 per ton to $25. The re ductions iv all the departments were ac cepted and the cost ot labor was made much lower. President Weihe of the Amalgamated Association being shown the' figures said they were certainly strong evidence, and had they been in the possession of the Homestead men while the investigating committee was here they would have made strong arguments. ASKING FOR HEM*. The Central Labor Union Sends Quick ■nd Generous Itesponse. New York, July To-day the Central Labor Union received an appeal for finan cial aid for the. Homestead iron and steel workers. It was referred to the animated uni' for immediate action. The central committee will collect funds in aid of the Homestead Ironworkers. BELGIAN IKONWOKKKItS. The Switzerland Una Arrived at Phila delphia With i;«o Emigrants. Philadelphia, July 17.— if the infor n.atlnn received by President Welhe of the Amalgamated Association to the effect that the Carnegie Company is im porting ironworkers from . Belgium by the steamer Switzerland is true then the men are behind the cordon of troops now around Homestead, lor tho Switzerland arrived here on Wednesday last. The Switzerland brought MO Immi grant!*, every one of whom passed the In spectors and were allowed to proceed to their destinations. Deputy Surveyor Franklin, who was on the dock examining the baggage, noticed: among the newly ar rived passenger a compauv of about 100 men, who ! were . noticeable ; for their stal wart appearance. Deputy Franklin' says all of them bad the look of men who had been engaged in some occupation that de veloped their strength. He also noticed their baggage checked to Altoona, Pa., which is but a short distance from Homestead. Chief Officer Apertz, in charge of the Switzerland, was seen to-day, and he said but few ( f the steamer's passengers were Belgians and none of them ironworkers. CHARGED WITH MUKDEK. Chicago Laborers Past I'pon the Conduct of Frlck and the I'lnkertoni. Chicago, July 17. — The Trades and Labor Assembly held a meeting to-day to take action on the Homestead troubles, and the committee appointed a week ago to pre pare resolutions on the subject presented its report. The preamble recites the ex istence of the Pinkerton acency and its "habit of sending armed assassins into the different States and Territories to shoot American citizeusand workingmen" ; states that Prick conspired with the Pinkertons to send "armed assassins called watchmen to Homestead, where, by Prick's instruc tions, these armed hirelings attacked, Killed and maimed citizens and workiueinen,creat ing a riot and imperiling the welfare of the whole United States, and that such acts are anarchistic and against the spirit of our liberties." Then follows resolutions de mand mc that the Governor of Illinois Im mediately cause the arrest of William Pinkerton upon a charge of murder and inciting a riot and insurrection; calling upon Governor Flower of New York to arrest Kobi. linkerton of Now York City; making a similar request to the Governor of Pennsylvania to arrest Mr. Frick on a charge of treason, murder and inciting riots, insurrections and rebellions, and claiming that Frick is at present trying to deprive American citizens of their homes and their rights to earn their living. The resolutions were received with cheers and a committee ol five was appointed to draw the charges of murder against Pinker ton and Tricky WITHOUT DAY.

Crosby of New York City is in El Paso on railroad business, and from him it is learned that the Mexican Government has just given a concession for r. railroad from Juarez, just opposite El Paso, to Mazatlan, Mex ico. Jud£a Crosby would not state lo whom the concession was given, but was emphatic in claiming that the road will be commenced at an early date and rushed west with all possible speed.

NELLIE KRUBGOt IS MISSING. Martin S. Bcalc, a Harried flan, the Partner of Her Flight-How the Story Was Hushed Ip. Trie people of East Oakland are agitated over a social sensation which has just been fully developed. Rumors which nt first were bard to trace have been fully con firmed by investigation, and there is no longer reason to doubt that Mrs. .Nellie Snelsinger has eloped.with Martin S. Beale, a married man with a wife and family. The couple disappeared on June G last and have tl d to Guatemala, going aboard the steamship San Juan, that sailed for South American ports from this city on that date, just x>fore the vessel left the dock and registerinß with the parser as Mr. and Mm. M. S. Brown. The story first leaked out In East Oak land aDout three weeks ago, but before the gossips got fully under way with the tale, A. G. Snelsinger, the husband of the way ward wife, who is a well-to-do real estate ac«ut at Fruitvale, and the woman's mother, Mrs. J. B. Watson, spread a counter story to the effect that Nellie bail goue to Canada to visit her husband's relatives and would be home in a few weeks. So cleverly wa3 the story told; so earnest and indignant was Mr. Suelsinger in his denials of the elopement; so vehement was he in his as sertions of being constantly in receipt of letters from his wife, and so persevering were all his friends in backing up the de nials of the rumor, th.it the story was dropped. It was true, nevertheless, for officers of the San Juan have recognized the descrip tions of the mUsing Mr.- 1 . Snelsinger and Mr. Beale as those of the people who traveled on the ship to San Jose de Guate mala under the names of Mr. and Mrs. Brown, and there are scores of facts that have been brought to light in the last two days since the return to this port of the ship that continued the identification. "WHO THE "WOMAN' IS. Nellie P. Snelsinger is the daughter of the late J. B. Watson who was at one time among the richest men in East Oakland. He was Carpeutier's confidential man when the latter was at the zenith of his wealth and power. Nellie, as a girl, was wayward and before she reached the age of 18 was the com panion of a married man in an elopement. The father went after the girl and brought her back, the story was hushed up and a short time afterward the girl became the wife of Chauncey St. John, the son of oue of tie oldest families in Aiameila County. Of the married life of the St Johns but little is known other than the husband dis covered her in a compromising position one day, and shortly afterward they separated, she obtaining by default, a divorce on the grounds of cruelty. St. John's friends say that he allowed her the divorce on account of their son, who was taken by the wife's mother, Mrs. Watson, who is raising him. All this was ei-rht years mo. Seven years ago Nellie St. John married A. G. Snelsin ger of Fruitvnle, and went to live with him in a cosy and comfortable home on the beautiful Fruitvale avenue. As the years went by and the Snelsingers lived happily and prospered, all the old stories of Nellie Watson's waywardness and Mrs. St. John's wickedness died out and she was once more received by everyone. Just when she made the acquaintance of Martin 8, Beale and how long they have carried on the intrigue that resulted in the elopement is a matter of conjecture. There are all sorts of rumors as to seeing the two out bu spy- rid ing, as to meetings at the lioiho of it friend in this city and at various restaurants and cafes, and all these rumors relate to meetings within a few months past. beal's biography. Martin S. Beat, or Be.ale. the nnn In the case, was formerly a resident of Oakland. Ho lived with his wife and two children at SGO Fourteenth street, and was engaged In the livery-stable business. He went nut of this business and came to this city, buying an interest in a small saloon on Slitter street near Stockton. In this he stayed but a short time and then went to work as a drummer for several wholesale liquor houses. However that may be, the fact is that Beale announced to Ills wife that he was going tn South America, and announced to her the date of his departure as June 5, the day before the San Juan sailed. He left her and his children at 3014 Sacramento street, told them when fixed he would send for them, kissed them good-by at the house, saying it was useless to go to the wharf with him, and hasn't been seen since. MRS. SNELSIXG EII'S PROPERTY. The story now goes back to East Oak land. When the estate of the late J. B. Watson was divided among his heirs, a valuable house and lot on Fourth avenue in East Oakland fell to his daughter Nellie's, Mrs. Snelsinger's share. On June 3 last Mis. Snelslnger went to W. P. Hawkett, a dep uty in the County Recorder's office, and, without her husband's knowledge, sold to Uawkett the property left to her by her father. The record of the deed appears on page 388 of book 45 of Record of Deeds in Ala meda County, and says that Nellie P. Snelsinger conveys to W. G. Hawkett tor $10 in lawful coin 100 feet ou Fourth avenue in East Oakland and in block 101, with the tenements thereon. This transfer of property was never pub lished in the newspapers, and owing to the absence of Mr. Hawkett at the Springs it is impossible to ascertain just the amount paid for the property, but it is supposed to' be somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,500. ■ With this money Mrs. Snelsineer left her home, crossed the bay and met Beale only a few minutes before the San Juan sailed, and on that vessel fled to sunny climes. Whether Mrs. Snelsinger had other money or not, it is certain that she had the pro ceeds of the sale made to Hawkett. A LOYAL HUSBAND. When Mr. Snelsinger was first seen in re lation to the affair he emphatically denied that his wife had eloped. lie became furi ously indignant when Hsked to produce one of the letters written by her to him since her departure five weeks and more ago. and swore that he didn't believe she had sold her property. After being convinced of the truth of the. sale Mr. Snelsinger admitted that he had not heard from his wife since she left and that he did not know of her present whereabouts. He refused to credit the story she had eloped and went on to de fend her most eloquently. Her son she left with her mother. The most intimate friends Mrs. Snelsinger had —her next-door neighbor and her girl chum In this city— refuse to say a word concerning the matter, the latter frankly saying when called upon: "I don't know anything, and I wouldn't tell you If I did." MRS. BEALE'S STORY. Mrs. Beale frankly says she does not know anything about the matter, and does not know what to think about it. She ad mits that Mr. Beale may have runaway with another woman, and his bidding her good-by the day before the vessel sailed and refusing to allow her to go with him to the ship now look to her, in the light of pres ent revelation?, as very suspicious circum stances. •■ One of the officers of the San Juan In spenkinz of Mr. and Mrs. Brown, described the woman as about 28 or 28 years of age; reddish hair, light blue eyes, of medium height and slender build, but very graceful, mid possessing a perfect figure. The man was tall and dark-complexioned, weighing about 180 pounds, with dark hair and heavy brown mustache. O:i board the snip the couple kept en tirely to themselves, refusing all overtures of friendship, and only answering in the most monosyllabic, way inquiries made by friendly passengers. The man was overheard calling the woman Nellie on one or two occasions. The description given by the officers, leaves no room for doubt as to the identity of the couple. What steps. If any, the deserted husband and wife will take is not known. Mr. SnelsinKer Is a man who en j >ys the confidence an I respect of all his neighbors and acquaintances hi known as a reliable, prompt and honest business man, and a loving and indulgent husband. He has not been In good health for some time, and his friends day he has b^en tailing rapidly of la to. Before the Sao J unn sailed for turn el c Panama papers contained accounts t.f a California wife eloping with au unknown PRICE FIVE CENTS. man and $15,000 of her husband's money. How the story got out the men aboard the San Juan are at a loss to know, hut sucpom that the runaways were met by some ont who formerly knew them and who told ot the elopement. THEY WANTED TO FIGHT. Why Harry Smith Languishes In a Prison Cell. The colored aristocracy south of Market street was greatly excited yesterday even ing by rumors of a personal encounter be tween Harry Smith, a youth well liked by the dusky belles of the locality, and Ernest Hogan of minstrel fame. Both man belong to "the greatest show on earth," at present holding forth at a popular resort, and both exhibited! considerable partiality for the same girl, whose name thay refuse to connect with the affair. Smith and Ilogan quarreled over the affair and parted vowing vengeance on one an other. Last night one of the actors told Smith he had better prepare himself or ha would be killed by Ilogan at the first oppor tunity. Smith took his friend's advice and procured a murderous-looking five-shooter loaded to kill. At about half-past 11 o'clock last night the rivals met suddenly face to face on Stev enson and Third street?, and without wait ing lor an introduction of hostilities Smith drew his trusty weapon quickly to geU* drop on his foe. Policeman S. F. Bean saw the gleam of cold steel reflected in fie gas light and grasped the gun before Smith could discharge it, and he now languishes ia a cell at the Southern station with a charge of carrying a concealed weapon against hi* name. _i__} ' READY FOR THE SACRIFICE. Democrats Who Are Willing to Be Honored. Judge Wallace Would Like to Succeed Mayor Sanderson— A Crop of Candidates for Other Offices. Locally the Demociats are beginning to discuss the question of candidates for municipal offices, and the most interesting development of the last day or two is the announcement that Judge Wallace will be a candidate for the Mayoralty. Some little talk if Barry Baldwin has been indulged In, but the candidacy of Wallace seems to overshadow all other aspirants. The friends of the Judge say that it Is a fact that he is in the field, and they claim that if he clings to his determination to stand for the nomination he will have a walkover. Because of his action in the Grand Jury matter he is regarded by the Democracy as the great enemy of bosses and bosslan, and that is what say is needed^ at this time to erase the last vestige of Buckleyism. Another fight of some little Interest Is the contest for the nomination for Sheriff; and this promises to wax decidedly warm be fore the day of the convention. Three principal men are named for the place, and each is working hard already to carry iff the plum, which is one of the best under the city government. Bob Wieland, the wealthy brewer, James O'Brien and Dick Whalen are all out for the place, with in snug littie income of about SIB, OOO a year, and every man of them is pulling and haul ing like a Trojan to drag it his way. Tim O'Brien, who was nominated by Buckley two years ago, and who came very near vic tory in spite of the Republican tidal wave, did have hiR eye on the place, but Tim had been told, It is said, that his old affiliations render it necessary for him to lay quiet for a campaign or two, and if at th«j«ndof that time he can demonstrate th it he has been a real good boy he may be given another show for his white alley. The advice comes from such a source that Tim is inclined to heed it. and he will probably attend to his pri vate business for a couple of years at least Henry Scott, who was Jud^e Wallace* elisor, is also talked of, and he may slip in, but it looks just now as if the odds were against him. ' Three candidates are belns discussed for Superintendent of streets. They are L. J. Welch. William Ackerson and Thomas Ajn worth. The triends of the latter say, bow ever, that he is not an aspirant, and that the fight is between Ackerson and Welch, with the chances largely in the iatter's favor. Welch i 3 a man of undoubted popularity, with nn exceptionally clean record as an official, and was one of the first to identify himself with the plan to reorganize the party after the overthrow of Buckley. The fight for County Clerk is also begin ning to look up and several names are being talked of. One is James P. Slevin, & newspaper man, and the others are R. P. Doolan and W. H. Gasran. Tho latter was also a newspaper man for several years, and is a warm personal friend of Judge Sulli van. It is too early yet to make any pre dictions as to the outcome, but the contest is likely to be a pretty one. Candidates for the other offices are not so variously discussed, and there is a flood of ambitious gentlemen who want to servo as Supervisors. They range all the way front Tommy Chandler to Henry Bingham and Colin M. Boyd, and in'-lmie such men as S:mds W. Formau and L. V. Merle. Nearly every man, in fact, who took part in reor ganizing the party is anxious to legislate for the city. *** ' — s iII Al /a. / ifm&R CopyjMOKT.ieai In the place of a woman who's weak, ailing, and miserable, why not be a woman who's healthy, happy, and strong?
