Eleventh  Year
Will Mot Re-Open Conference
Where It Was Broken
Nominating Democratic Candidate -More Lynching
In South.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 1.���The Com-
mecial   Gazette   tomorrow   will  say:
-���The Jlmalgamated executive board
Inst ovening received ty tel.graph a
Hal refusal from .1. Pierpout Morgan
lo n'open the wage conference where
il wus broken off at the Hotel Lincoln, nearly three weeks ago. Tho
powers'of the steel combine insist in
lliis communication that the only
basis of settlement would be on terms
which the financial backer of the combine. Pre ident C. M. Schwab and
Chairman Elbert U.Gary laid down at
the meeting with the Amalgamated
executive in New York la t Saturday. A member of the executive
board of the association, lust night
said: "These terras are denominated
by those who have the best interests
of the organization of steel workers
at heart, as the most unfair, the most
unjust over proposed to any body of
worldug men by a set of employers or
a corporation. Tha terms are such
thnt the executive board of tho Amalgamated^ association cannot accept
and have already gone on record to
thnt eil'ect."
Tomorrow the answer of Mr. Morgan is e: ncetiid by mail. There is
scarcely a 'ragmonl of a hope 1118'
the Amalgamated Association will
back down from its well known position. The leaders of the workers
will in reply, outline their plans to
the steel corporation for a continuation of the great struggle. They will
include the stopping of every wheel
possible in the works of the combine
and the extension of the strike in ail
possible diections by the Amalgamated Association. Today may develop
much, but if the combine cannot be
mado to waver through the influence
that will be brought to bear, the
great conflict will probably be fought
to the bitter end.

New Orleans, An?. 1.���A special to
the Picayune says: "Threo persons,
a wo nan ann two men. were lynched
here today. A mob took the prisoners
f -on tbe jail and hanged them. These
three persons were remanded to the
ja'l by the coroner's jury that investigated tie murder ot Mr. and Mrs.
Talill'erre who were brutally killed at,

Longshoremen Re'use to Handle
Freight of Anchor Line Boats.
Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 1.���An action,
thnt as its effects now stands, influences the entile lake traffic, went into
effect today, when the 000 men of the
local No. 100, International Longshoremen's Association, in obedience
to a letter from President Daniel J.
O'Keefe decided to re "use to handle
thc freight of any Anchor line boats
out of sympathy with the strikirg
longshoremen of Erie, Pa. The locals
at. every point, reached by Anchor line
boats bave received similar letters
from President O'Keefe of the Longshoremen's Association. The Anchor
lino being a member of tho Lake Carriers' Association, an organization
which ir eludes the entire fresh water
lleol, it is said will be backed up in
their position. All the branohes here
ire affectr 1, scoopers, oilers, firemen
ind freight handlers and coal passers. The branch of the tugraen's association in thiB port will hold a
meeting tomor ow night to consider
the question and it is s^id similar
nuttings have been clled at every
port on tbe great laki i where tho An-
choi lino boats to.ieh.
Baltimore, Md., Aug. 1.���The Democratic state convention which met
here today declared that the purposo
of the party if successful in the coming elections to eliminate the negro
from politics in Maryland if such a
thing be possible under the constitution of the state. Upon this, tha paramount issuo of the campaign, will
stand the candidates nomii ated today
for state offices and those shosen in
the various county and district conventions as candidates for places in
the legislature of 11102 which body
will elect a United States senator to
succeed George L. Wellington. That
his successor in the event of Democratic victory will be Aiibuv German
is probable. The real business of the
convention was thc formulation and
adoption of a platform upon which
the Democrats could go before the people of the state with a reasonable
show of winning. The combined sagacity of all the Democratic leaders
in the state was called into requisition
for this this purpose and under the
advice and guidance of Jlr. Gor-
mau, the following declaration upun
tho chief issue wns involved: The
Democratic party represents more
thnn 40,000 majoilty of tho white
people of Maryland. They, in common with tholr brethren of othor
states in which large masses of colored vot.rs have been injected into the
body of politics, recognize that tho
peace, good order, personal safety
and proper development of our material interests depends upon the control
ofthe commonwealth by its intelligent white residents. Without tho
nitl of the sixty thousand colored voters the Republican party iu Maryland
WLiuld be a hopeless  minority.
We, therefore, without hesitation
proclaim that thc success of the Democratic party will mean that while wo
shall deal with perfect fairness in securing all the benefits of good government and full of free opportunities
for education to all classes, such action must be taken as to prevent the
control of Ihe state government fiom
passing into thc hands of   those  who
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 1.���The statement was given out by the Amalgamated board this afternoon that there
was nothing to report and lhat another session will be held tomorrow
morning. The conference was still in
progress but the gur-d said this statement was final for .he day. It is said
that V. Preston, Joi. Schwab, and
W. E. Corey of the steel combine,
were in telephonic conversation with
the Amalgamated board at frequent
intervals all day. But what passed
over the wires is not known. It indicates, however, that all hope of settlement is not abandoned by either
side. The conference adjourned at 5
p. m.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 1.���The Amalgamated Journal, the organ of the
Amalgamated Association, editorially
says today the result of the delibora
tions of tlio board on Tuesday was
sent to the United States Steel Corporation officials. The board desires
another conference with tbe represent-
atives of the constituent companies
and will remain in the city until an
answer is received. Upon the result
of the answer, it savs, will depend
whether ihn strike will be prolonged

LondoD, Aug. 1.���In the Horse of
Commons today Lord Stanley, the
financial secretary of the war office,
replying to a question said the cost
of the war in South Africa from April
1 to Jujy 81, was ��.5,750,000, partly
charge-iblc against the deficit of last
year. The actual cost in July was
1,850,000 weekly. The statement was
greeted with ironical Irish cbeers.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir
M. Hicks-Beach said if the war continued at the same cost for the next
three months it would necessitate
spending the whole of the reserve he
had p ovided for financing the third
quarter but he had reason to hope that
this would not   be necessary.

horsei, eight for the use of the royal
visitors and four for tbe use of His
Excellency at Quebec, Montieal, Ottawa, Toronto and Halifax, aud six for

Escorts of 96 non-co nm'ssioned
officers and troopers aud five offke.-s
will be provided wherever the royal
visitors Btay, and guards of honor of
100 men, with a captain and other
officers. As in many places two o.
thrie escorts and guards will be wanted daily, the t endurance of the local
troops will be pretty well tried.

flotilla of baik canoes manned by
river men, singing backwoods songs;

The investigation inta theauspenion
of P. C. Her /ener was held yesterday
morning at the police court before
Police Commisioner Mayor Fletcher
aud Alderman Selors, and the result
of the proceedings is that Heavener
has been re instated. The investigation was thoroughly conducted and
all tho evidence on each side of the
case was go^e into with painstaking
care, and while tbe commissioners
found it n: -essary to administer a
stern rebuke for the cause which led
np to the investigation, the extremity
of the provocation was regarded as
s.ilieient to wan-ant the decision
arrived at. The first witness to be
examined was Sheriff S. P. Tuok, who
on being sworn testified that he was
a witness of tbe last part of tbe dispute between Heavener and Cunningham. His attention waa first attracted to the occurrence by hearing a
noise from his room. He went to the
scene of the conflict and saw two
men in a fight' and ran in between
them. Beanener then related the origin of the affair, which was practically as has arleady been stated in the
columns of Tbe Miner.
Tie next witne s sworn was S. C.
Hendryx, who was in the mploy of the
ice company, lie was standing at tbe
corner near the Grand Central hotel
and saw the encounter. Cunningham
struck at the officer with the left
hand, when Heavener st-uck at him,
knocking him against the fence,where
he fell. While Cunningham was on
the ground the officer struck at him
but, Cunningham's arm was over bis
face and he could not be hit. He then
arose and peeled off his coat and
struck at Heavener again, who tripped
him and threw h!m down. He did
not think that Heavener struck him
while he was on the ground and did
not see any kicking, and would certainly have seen it had there been
Chief of Police Jarvis was tbe next
���it,ne-;s called and stated that on
Monday last Heavener reported that
he had been having trouble with
Cunningham and from what ho learned suspended him, pending an investigation. He looked upon him es an
efficient and attentive officer and fiom
what ho had heard of the case he be-
libved that the officer had been insulted   and    irritated   by    Cunningham.
Heavener was next called and his
evidence went to show that, on Friday the 3lith tie went to ..ervo a writ
on Canningham at his house but did
not, see him. He went again on Saturday but did nol find him in his
shack the second time. On Monday,
on Coming up Baker street, he met
Cunningham,'..near.the express office,
when Cunningham asked him if he
bad been down to bis flhaek and received an affirmative reply. An altercation ensued in which tlie police
officer was called by name! too vile
lo publish, and was nlso branded as a
coward. Heavener tried to reason
thc matter with his assjilant, but to
no.purpose. Cunnlnghum stated that
he could do Heavener the best day
that he had ever seen. Heavener replied that he did not feel inclined to
take all the abuse he was receiving,
so agreed to go wilh him and give
him an opportunity to do So, if he
could, as ho thought that ho was off
duty, and had the same privilege as
any other oiti.cn to resent being insulted. He then started to go down
to the lake front. While on Ward
street Cunnlnghum tapped a man on
the shoulder and asked him to come
along as "we are going down to havo
a little dispute by ourselves." As
they went by the Hume hotel, Cunningham   made   the   remark that   he
(the witness)   was   taking   advantage
of him while he was drunk.

Vanrouver, B. C, July 31.���Ac
cording to a member of tie Canners'
Association executive puree lines

of sockeye salmon before tbey reach
the American traps, when the Provincial Government of British Columbia
get control of the administration.
Then it will bo a serious business for
Puget Sound c.oners. There are 40
miles of water between Otter Point
and Discovery Island, British Coliim

way to the spawning bcrls in the Frr-

however, so clear that gill nets are
useless and the fish swim so far from
shore that drag lie's cannot be used.
With purse seines, however, the
vast harvest of fish could be gathered
In before they reached the American
traps. The Federal authorities, however, refuse to allow p use nets to be
used. All sorts of in'luence have been
brought to bear ou the Fisheries Department of Canada to psrsuade them
to permit B. C. !flune:s to thus head
off the fish from the American trap'.
The depart-ntnt bas ever replied
that Canada cannot be a party to the
extermination of the sockeve. Tbat
what policy the United States adop.s
is another question. The;cannei6'
combine say that the Ottawa government is too far away from the base of
operations where other influences an-
tagonstic to the west prevail. This
season the Province made an attempt
to seize control of the fisneric . and
grant the request of tbe canners to
ohauge the administration entirely
and adopt plans to corral the salmon
before tbey reached American waters.
Eetter counsel appeared .o pievail,
however, and it was decided to await
the caso piese ,ted by Quebec to the
Privy Council regarding their right
of jurisdiction of tide waters. If

Washington, Aug. 1,���The break in
tbe Venezuelan cabinet caused by
the resignation of Senor Pulido, the
war minister, caused considerable surprise in diplomatic circles here. Tho
real situation apparently is not understood and especially the proposition to deliver his passports to Senor
Rico, tbe Colombian minister. ThiB
act ordinarily is regarded by diplomats as tantamount to a casus belli,
and officials here are at a loss to understand the reason for the consideration of such a step ns it is said that
the relations of the governments of
Venezuelan and Colombia are cordial.
There appears to be some inconsistency in the reports of the battle which
has taken placa near San Cristobal
between the government troops and
tbo rebels, the despatches from Port
of Spain declaring that the government troops sustained a defeat while
a telegram received at the Venezuelan
legation here today from thc consul
gereial of that country at New York,
announced the defeat of the revolutionists in the San  Cristobal   encoun

A mass 0' evidence is being placed
before the Commission appointed by

into the question of freight rates in

which occurred yeBterday. The In-
Jian who died had just returned from
Kalispell, Mont., where he had been
visiting Indian acquaintances on the
Flathead reservation, lt is thought
that he contracted the disease while
there, and efforts are being made to
prevent its spread among the Indians
here. As there was some difference
of opinion as to the cause of yesterday's death tbe town authorities sent
Dr. G. E. Barker to the mission (o

the . .ae to be smallpox. Action was
at once taken by the town trustee
who declared that a quarantine existed against the Indians, and instructed the marshal to keen them out
of town. There aro not over ia Indians at the mission, but their uncleanly habits and manner of living,
as well as their ignorance of the care
a patieDt should receive, make the

Instead of in separate lots. There
were only three bids, the highest being 95&0. The auctioneer announced
that he would inform the bidder later

It comes this season greatly augmented with nn array of the most inviting
up-to date novelties ever seen in minstrelsy, cleverly strung together for
Laughing purposes only. The roster
includes fifty prime entertainers.
The street parade, the big outside attraction, takes plaoe at u.,10 p. m. In

oughbrod horses, all ot which are

Cascade, Aug. 1.���There is a force
of men working on the 800 foot tunnel opposite Cascade City, on the Republic line of railway. This work
will necessarily proceed slowly. Pat
Welsh has the contract of cutting the
tunnel. ThuB far but few accidents
are to be recorded. Yesterday a man
whose name could not be ascertained
was very seriously injured by a log
rolling over bis body. He was working for Twnhey brothers. Tho injured man was removed to the hospital.
Contractor Van Norman, who is
building the culverts between Marcus and the boundary, is haid at
work with a force. One of the Porter
brotheis has just returned from a
trip along the line. This fltin lias the
contract to hnild all the bridges except the big steel bridge over the Columbia. Mr. Porter said bis firm
would commence builaing the foundations for the false work and the permanent bridge soor. "We shall commence this work just as soon as the
stage of water will allow. The river
now is nearly 30 feet at tbe deepest
place, but the water is going down
constantly. We shall build the piers
for tbe big bridge at the snme time.
This work will be pushed with nil
possible vigor. If there is no delay
the fah.e works can be completed within less than six weeks from the time
we start and the temporary bridge
be ready for use. Our work yard will
be located not fnr from the present
depot. As fn t ns the timber is prepared it can easily be run down to the
river on the track. We shall have no
trouble or delay ln obtaining materials for the temporary bridge for we
can draw from nil inurters."
