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.

tional (.'liurrii, Sacramento.
Sackamknio, July 17.— The funeral of
ex-Governor Newton Booth took place this

and the preacher said It Speaks well for a
people when they recognize superior worth
and elevate It to a distinguished station.

splendid and eloquent language. 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. As a
statesman he stood linn for moral princi
ples, and no suspicion of corruption rests

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.

Property.
Chico, July 17.— At 2 o'clock this morn
ine nearly the whole side of a block of old
Chinatown, situated in the eastern poition
of the city, was destroyed by fire. Chinatown

tions, one block in length on the east and
west side of Flume street. The fire started
in the theater on the east side, and with the
assistance of a southeast breeze rapidly
spread toward the. opposite corner, and with
the exception of about half a dozen shan
ties the whole sid* was destroyed. By the
exertions of the firemen the blaze was kept

■ 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.

Fears Entertained for the Safety of a Pros

San Diceo, July 17.— Tne wagon of a
pro* pert! iik party which sot out from this
city i for the (Jucopan country has be^n

tending to arou«e fears for the safety of the

been returned from them. Eh their wagon
were found th*ir coats, rifle-, revolvers,

the latter leading to the hills some miles
away were found at springs, together with
other Indication* of their presence.

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

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. At any rate the ad
visory committee is not particularly vigi
lant this evening, although the patrols are
continued.
Shannon stated this evening that ho knew
of DO men to be brought in until Thursday,
and that the whole effort of the com pan v
would be directed toward bringing back
ttie old men. not to setting new ones- "The

wailing light, but I believe we can stand it
for live year*. Considerable help has be n

MEN STAND FIKM.
They Will Not Accept the Invitation to
Go to Work.
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

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.

Chicago, July 17. — The Trades and

and maimed citizens and workiueinen,creat

whole United States, and that such acts are
anarchistic and against the spirit of our

The resolutions were received with cheers
and a committee ol five was appointed to

An Elopement Which Is Agitating
East Oakland.
MRS. 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

and acquaintances hi known as a reliable,

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

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.
