Pendleton, Or., May 5. Renters
and owners of land in the Umatilla
reservation havo met and organized a
Vigilance committee, to shoot down
cattle straying upon grain lands. The
movement Is caused by the Indians
tearing down fences and turning stock
loose. It is expected this action will
provoke a test law case to more clearly
deflno to what extent the Umatilla
Indian is u citizen, it Is argued that
the Indians cannot be citizens, be
cause they aro not taxed, cannot vote
nor hold public onice, but are wards
of tho government, which must pro
tect them. It Is desired to ascertain
what recourse Is possible against
Indians who commit depredations.

Building Demolished by the
FAMILY STOVE BLOWS UP
Six Persons Killed and About
Cincinnati, May G. This city and
vicinity lias been greatly excited over
the explosion of a large tank of gaso
line, which completely demolished tho
five-story building at 430 and 43.2 Wal
nut street, at 8 o'clock last night.
After the explosion tho wildest re
ports were current as to tho loss of
life. Bcforo midnight it was known
that 0 were killed and 18 Injured, but
the work of removing the debris had
proceeded so slowly that the general
estimate of the killed and wounded
greatly exceeded tills number. Tho
building was occupied by Adolph C.
Drachs, a saloon-keeper on the llrst
Moor, and by Dlchcl & Co., dealers in
fireworks, on tho upper floors. There
were also many roomers In tho build
ing. Tho building seems to havo col
lapsed In such a manner that tho pile
of debris wab covered by tho tin roof,
and, after waiting Hovcrnl hour?, it
was found that the only way to rescuo
tho victims was to remove the Im
mense mass of brick and timber. Ac
cordingly men wcro put nt It, as many
of them ns could work on it. The de
bris was shoveled by one force out into
the street and Into the rear alley, and
all available teams wcro secured for
another force of men to load It up
and get It out of tho way. This wus
found to bo tho only practical means
of reaching those who wcro on tho
All those who have been rescued
were on tho upper floors, except somo
who wcro thrown out Into tho street.
Wlille tills work was going on holes
were cut through tho foundations of
adjacent buildings and debris taken
out. Three lives wero saved by icr
sons being rescued in that manner.
It is thought others will bo saved by
these holes through the basement
walls of tho adjoining buildings.
The explosion last night has re
quired tho attention of all the city
departments today. Follcla Dracli
and C. L. Wells, in the list of Injured
last night died today. The others
dead are: Hollins A. Davis, Adolph
Drach and Mamie Kennedy. Tho
