Norfolk, Va., August 1— A message
tram Governor Woodfin of the Soldiers'
home nt Hampton, snys there hnve been
three deaths from yellow fever in Oie last
i»4 hours, and ;«i cases arc now under
treatment. Expert surgeons and immune
nurses are being _*U_*d and rigid quarantine regulations enforced. He docs not
think thc disease will spread beyond the
An  Alarms-* Ontlook.
Washington, August L—Surgeon Oeneral Steinberg received the following from
Lieutenant Colonel Dewltti
"Fort Monroe, Ya.—Surgeon Pettus.
United States marine hospital service,
quarantine officer, officially slated that
yellow lever was at the National Soldiers'
iioine ut Hampton. There were 34 cases
with six death-. The commanding ollicer
took immediate measures for quarantine."
Oeneral Corbin says the conditions are
serious and then' i- no telling how far thc
infection may have reached. Exclusion
parties have been coming io Old Point,
Newport News and the soldiers' home.
Many of the excursionists hare mingled
wilh the soldiers.
Corbin says one theory of the way the
fever might have lieen brought to thc
home is that one nf thc soldiers recently
visited Santiago. He returned some time
sinee, suffering with what the physician.*
Ihought to be dengue. It seems it was
not until the inmates of thc home began
to die that the disease was discovered to
be yellow fever.
Officials of the war department are very
much concerned about the situation. Corbin and Sternberg had a conference early
Ihis morning and it was divided to hold
everything in readiness to take care oi
the yellow fever should it appear among
the troops.
Orders have been issued by the department removing the garrison at Fort Monroe to some point on the northern coast
to be selected by (ieneral Merritt. A few
officers and enlisted men will remain al
Fort Monroe as guards.
Surgeon Oeneral Van Ituypen of the
navy department said lie did not believe
it would Ik* necessary to suspend operations at Norfolk. The navy yard, however,
would bc quarantined.

Newport News, Va., Aug. 1.—Tlie offl-
eers of the Soldiers' Home at Hampton
have no bleu how the yellow fever worked
its way into the place where over 4000 old
union veterans are quarantined!
This ciiy is completely cut off from
Hampton, Old Point, und Soldier*)' Home
except by wire. Reports telephoned from
lhe last named place today show the fever
situation there is well in hand. Hilly one
new case has developed since yesterday
afternoon and no other deaths have been
The home grounds are effectually quarantined and it ia not thought the disease
will spread beyond the reservation. Aimed
Another Car lllowu l'p.
Cleveland, July 31.—The blowing up of
another Euclid Beach suburban car has
demonstrated that the danger point is not
yet passed in connection with the street
car strike in this city. The plan to ra*
lease the military force early next week

Chino, July :tl.— The Japanese alliance
has been welcomed by England and Germany on the ground that it will rein-
vigorate China and enable her to resist
the liussian advance.
The Spectator, in the course of an interesting artiele, asserts that Japanese reorganization of the Chinese army and navy and finances would be successful because the Japanese are more in sympathy
with Chinese national feeling than the
western nations.
Japan, the article says, would abolish
corruption and organize a formidable well-
armed Chinese anny, while the combined
Chinese and Japanese navies would be able
to prevent any invading army reaching
China by sea.

Republic Notes
The south drift on the No. 2 tunnel
level of the San Poll mine, ls looking
well, and a recent sample from the face
assayed $139.70 per ton, of which $21
was ln silver. The north drift on the
some level shows two feet of ore in the
face, which gives good values.
The new tunnel on the North Star
mine was started June 9th and ls now
In 198 feet and timbered from the
mouth 50 feet. It is gaining four and
one-half feet per day In good ground.
A large body of ore was encountered
at the mouth of the Palo Alto tunnel.
The prominent properties at the
head of I-ambert creek that are being
worked are the Belcher, Eastern Star
and Columbia groups. On all of these
active development work Is going on.
The district lies about 15 miles northeast of Republic and only about one
mile north of the state wagon road
leading from Republic to Marcus.
The Golden Harvest group will shortly be under development again. The
company has been reorganized upon the
assessable plan. The old corporation
was the Golden Harvest Consolidated
Gold  Mining Company.
The shaft on the Liberty, in Sheridan camp, is 40 feet in depth. The
ledge Is said to be eight feet In width.
Some fine specimens of ore are exhibited, and it is claimed that the
values are also good. Some of the ore
closely resembles that In the Zella M.
While there Is some gold in the rock,
the larger part of the value is in silver.

At a point on the Kettle river, eight
miles from the headwaters and 27 miles
from Arrow lAke, via Fire valley, John
Worth located a placer claim several
months ago. John Lodge, who ls an
old placer miner, located a claim opposite the discovery, and during the winter cut a ditch 3,000 feet In length In
order to obtain water. The diggings
are on the bench. Quite a number of
claims have been staked, and many men
are getting ready to wash the yellow
dust out. Seven dollars without saving
any of the fine gold ts the largest
amount yet taken out in one day. The
bedrock ls from five to seventy-five feet
from the surface, and indications point
to pay ground, more especially for a
hydraulic company. About three miles
from the placer ground several gold
quartz locations have been made. The
placers are located about 90 miles from
Grand Forks.
The latest big ctrlkes in the wonderful camp McKinney are on the Balmoral, south of the Granite, and on the
well known Pender. The Balmoral has
a two-foot vein, and a recent blast
showed the whole face literally covered with free gold. On the Pender another four-foot vein has been opened
which pans free gold throughout Its entire width, and shows a liberal sprinkling of visible free gold.

is to be equipped with a $20,000 plant.

The New Denver Lodge poses as an
uphojder of the Minprs' Unions in
their demand for the niamtainance of
the old scale nt wagos for tho altered shift, but it slows not tho least
hesitation in striking an underhanded
Mow at the Silverton Miners'Union
at the request (or command) of one of
the members of tho Mine Owners' Association, whose humble servant the
Ledge proves itself to be.
The main desire of tlie Unions, at
this present juncture, is to maintain
the existing stale of'wages, i e S.'l.TiO
per shift. Their employers aie combined with the avow'd irtention of
forcing down the wages to !?3 00 per
shift. As a result we have had a lockout in the Slocan for several weeks,
put matters, have not progressed as
the mine managers wished or expected, Instead of becoming meekly submissive or  wildly antagonistic,  either
the Wakefield and at the Bosun.
The Union asked, through the men
at work, for a written as well as a verbal tjuarant.ee of the Union wages. In
default of this the  men were  called
And the hypocritical Ledge, the
fnend(?) of the miners calls their action an "Unjustifiable Interference."
The Ledge is a confirmed etraddler,
with never heart encugh to avowedly
take one side of any question. Its
ollice at present is overshadowed by its
neighbor, the home of the Northwest
Mining Syndicii >; It condemns the
Miners' Union because th y havo "deprived their members of employment.''
Tho contractors interest<*d cheerfully
threw up their contracts nnd are not
looking for sympathy, The managers
uf the mines in question must either
honestly hire their men or honestly
abide by the rules of the Mine Owners'
Association. The Miners' Union will
not be an accomplice to any halt

mining traiieacions recorded daring the

Owing to a reduction in miners' wages
canned by the enforcement of the eight
honr law, the miners are all idle and thc
mines have shut down.   Therefore all
worklugmen are hereby warned to kei-p
away from   the Slocan  and  Kootenay
country, British Columbia, until preaent
troubles are  amicably  settled   between
mine owners and miners.

| now recognize that they had deceived y Nelaon
themselves in tlirir first wild rush to
join the Minn Owners' Association,
Possibly too, they see the axe in the
hands of tlie back E.st or Old Country
stockholders, and know that they are
imperiling their jobs in depreciating
any longer the value of their employer^ property.
But the mine manager has much
(he same repugnanc to being called a
traitor as a true miner has to being
called a scab, which is the same thing,
and so ho dares not break abruptly hie
irksome connection with ihe M, O. A.
Acting under circumstances perhaps
like these, two managers of properties
in the Silverton district, tho Wakefield and the Bosun, gave contracts for
woik to be done in their mines. Each
of the managers in question gave verbal promises to the men engaged by
their contractors Ihat they should be
paid ?.'? 50 for every shift worked By
this they secured tlio pervices of good
miners in their mines.
Then, in order to discourage the
Unions in other camp and also to impress upon their "jo-signers in the M.
O. A. ultimatum that they were not
scabbing on their own account, they
instigated articles in their press to the
effect that these miners were receiving
less than Union wageB. At least the
NeUon Miner quotes the management
of the Wakefield as authority for such
The men employed at theso mines
would not pose as scabs nor would the
Union allow them to do so, It is only
by presenting an unbroken front that
they can hope to win.
Another important feature of the
matter is this, The taking of contracts tends to lower wages. When
the system is in full swing, the competition becomes keen and tho mine-
manager secures cheaper and cheaper
labor. Thus the contracts given in
the Wakefield and the Bosun, although
liberal ones, were the thin edge of the
(heap labor wedge. Contracts are always renewed on slightly ln38 favorable terms for the contractors. At the
Royal Canadian a few dnys ago the
contractors could not renew their cqn,-
trai.'ts so us lo ensure a duy's pay for
