Washington troops under Colonel Wh-lley
were landed under cover of a well directed
fire from the gunboats Napidan and Oova-
donga. The rebels, -who were intrenched
in the outskirU of the town, reserved their
fire until the troops were ashore. The
American artillery opened fire on the Insurgents and drove them from their positions, killing nine of them and wounding
five. The Washington troops then took
the town, thc rebels flying to the hill-
While the Americans were on their way
to Morong the insurgents opened fire from
a shore battery at Ancona, their first
shots striking the Oovadonga'a awning aft
at a range of 3500 yards. The Napidan
also was fired at.
In dispatching General La\vton to capture Morong, Major General Otis is understood to have the purpose to destroy or
drive back the strong force of insurgents
which have been operating from that section against the Pasig river line. There
is no expectation here that Lawton _ column will go fur from the rivers or dales
upon which supplies will be carried to
The authorities appreciate the extreme
difficulties of a campaign during the rainy
season, and all they expect is that the
American forces will make short incursions into the enemy's country, breaking
up nny large organizations -which may
establish themselves in the vicinity of
Manila and especially near Laguna de

States; now it turn* out he has imported
a Urge quantity of arms from Singapore,
via Sandoken, with a view of resisting the
Americans. These arms he stored on the

It is 'believed that the decision of the
sultan to fight the United States is the result of Bray's mission to Singapore in

Strange Series of Disasters.
Arthur, 111, June 8.—One boy drowned,
a little girl fatally injured beneath the
hoofs of horses, two women and a man
brought to death's door by tbe shocks of
the accidents, all incidents accompaning
the funeral of a man who met with sudden death, made Sunday a remarkable
one in this city.
The strange chain of disasters began
when the local G. A. R. post buried C. P.
Wells, who was asphyxiated by gas in a
hotel Wednesday night While the ceremony was in progress at the cemetery,
news reached Gus Baker that his 13-year-
old son had just been drowned while
swimming. The shock prostrated Mr.
Baker and he had to be taken home in a
carriage. When the news was broken to
his wife, she went frantic and became unconscious. Both are in a precarious condition.
While the funeral procession was returning from the cemetery one of the carriages
ran over Mrs. William Sullivan's little 2-
year-old daughter, mangling her in a horrible manner.
Miss O. L. Clark, a witness to the latter
accident, fainted and was carried to the
nearest house, where she lay for four hours
before recovering sufficiently to be removed to her home.

The San Poll Road.
Republic, Wash., June 5.—Good progress is being made in constructing the
San Poil wagon road. There are several
miles of it that can be traveled with
wgaons, but the easiest part has been
constructed first. Plows and scrapers have
done the work so far. There will be very
little blasting necessary between Republic

deal of it that is over very rocky ground

broke out in the Spiegle building, due to
the stovepipe telescoping. In 10 minutes
the house was a mass of flames, lhe
building was occupied l.y County Auditor
Spiegle, by roomers, and as a county office
upstairs, while the lower floor was used
as a jewelry store by S. Burnette and by
It U. Curry as broker. The fire soon
spread to tlie Republic bank building.
From that moment it was seen that the
town was doomed, unless heroic measures
prevailed. The Woodhouec k Wells building, four doors south, was blown up with
dynamite. Then followed the residence
of H. L. Percy. Tbis did not effect any
good, and as all the buildings intervening
were doomed, it was decided to blow up
the Coeur d'Alene saloon and the Republic
'Trading Company's store. South from
these there were several vacant lots, and
that stopped the fire.
In the meantime the wind, which had
been coming form the north, veered to the
southeast, causing the flames to cross the
street. The Montana saloon was the first
to get on fire, then followed the Dewey
saloon, and the other buildings on the
east side of Clark avenue followed quickly.
The progress of the flames was arrested
by a broad street. Much of tho fn.niture
was removed from the buildings, and the
was considerably damaged.

men lost their places of business. The total loss will be about $67,000.
Saloons Ordered Closed.
There was much liquor sUlen during the

drunken men. The commissioners ordered
the sherifl to close all the saloons until

Miners Hefnaed Work.
Gem, Idaho, June 5.—A new complication has arisen in connection with the
revival of woik in the Canyon creek properties. New men who have applied for
work complain that they have been rejected by shift bosses, and the implication
ia that the b-sses are working in sympathy
with the unions in trying to keep new
men from getting empl.iym nt. Yesterday
and today complaints of that sort have
been numerous, and the applicants are
indignant at the failure of their efforts to
get work.
Tinier the union rules when a miner becomes a boss he is not permitted to attend union meetings, but he continues
payment of his dues, and is still a member of the federation.
As a consequence, some shift bosses are
likely to have more or less sympathy with
the union.
Nearly all of Canyon Creek turned out
to attend the funeral at Wallace of Mike
I.. Devine, who died of pneumonia in the

About 300 men were in line with mourning badges of the miners' unions and the

for breakfast the chambermaid knocked

thinking he had overslept. When his room

All the circumstan: es go against the supposition that he committed suicide, lt is
conjectured that he died of heart disease
brought on by rheumatism, from which
he was suffering.

country of the world. The coal production of tho United Kingdom ln 1897

ed States, 179,000,000; Germany 91,.
000,000; France, 30,000,000 tons. The
United States has gained much more
rapidly during the 16 years under consideration than has the United Kingdom or any of the Important coal-producing countries of the world, her gain
during the 16 years being over 73 per
cent and that of tbe United Kingdom
less than 2 per cent The announcement just made by the geological survey thst the coal product of the United
States ln 1898 was 219,836,000 short

The British-American Corporation,
It Is said, has let contracts for four 150-
horse-power electrical hoists, to be divided as follows among the mines operated by the corporation: Two for
the Le Roi mine, one for the Number
One and one for the Josie.
On his return to the city recently,
Superintendent W. A. Carlyle, of the
British American Corporation, announced that he had received cable Instructions from the London office of
the Le Roi company authorizing him
to go ahead with the elaborate plans
he had submitted for the further development of this famous producer.
Mr. Carlyle's plans recommended the
sinking of a new vertical six-compartment shaft, arranged to have only four
compartments, two of which will be
double ln size of an ordinary compartment. The dimensions of this new
Bhaft, inside timbers, will be 12-18 feet
The two cage compartment for hoisting purposes will be four feet four
Inches by nine feet six inches, to contain a cage large enough to carry two
mine cars, or a timber car. In one of
the smaller compartments there will
be a cage for ordinary traffic. The
whole plant is on a design powerful
enough to sink to a depth of 2600 feet,
with a capacity of from 1200 to 1500
tons per day.
The shaft will be sunk to a depth of
2000 feet with the utmost rapidity and
will take fully a year to complete. It
Is to be sunk from the end of a new
500-foot double track tunnel that will
be run ln at a point a little above the
compressor plant, and from the place
the shaft will be sunk to the surface
will be a distance of about 225 feet A
raise will be made of the same general
dimensions of the tunnel to a height
of 100 feet, above the tunnel level, or
125 feet from the surface, at which
point a large station will be cut out
and here will be Installed two enormous and powerful electrical hoists of
500-horse power each.

Superintendent J. W. Cunningham of
the United States assay office in Boise,
has completed his statement of the

compared with the production of 1897
of 1138,607. The decrease In the gold
production ot 1898, as compared with
1897, amounted to 1229,767. while the
decrease In silver production was $306,-
780. There was a marked Increase,
however, In tbe lead production, of
$397,940. The comparative production
Is shown as follows:
1897 1898
Gold       $2,125,813   $1,895,566
Silver    7,103,321     6,796,541

diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness ls caused by an
Inflamed condition of the mucous lining of ths
Eustachian Tube. When this tube is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect hearing, and when It la entirely closed, Deafness
ts the result, and unless the Inflammation can
be taken out, and this tube restored to IU
normal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by

A special to the San Diego (Cal.)
Union from Ensenada, Lower California, gives the most definite Information
that has yet come to hand In regard to
the new gold fields.     It says:
Tbe Santa Barbara has arrived at
San Quentln. She brings the report
that there are about 300 miners at the
camp. E. Ybarra Is said to have panned out 60 ounces since the last report
of 52 ounces. An official who arrived
on the Santa Barbara states he saw
miners at work taking out from three
pennyweights to two ounces. At the
present time the new diggings Is 12
miles long by two wide. Discoveries
are reported further south. Water Is
selling at $3 per carga. There are no
dry washers In the camp, nearly all the
present results being got by panning.
Chas. Sweeny was ln Orangeville,
Idaho, recently and made the second
payment of $25,000 on the bond of the
Big Buffalo, through the Bank of Camas Prairie. All doubts are now removed as to the merits of the property and
Insures steady development for the balance of the year.
Over 11,000,000 tons of ore have been
taken out of the Anaconda properties
since work on them first began in 1880.
The company has paid out $78,000,000
for labor ln that time. The mining
and reduction expenses* alone for the
past year aggregated $12,000,000; the
timber alone for the mines costs about
$500,000 a year. The company also
pays out about $50,000 each year to persons injured In the mines or to the families of miners killed In the employ of
the company.

Colonel E. H. Morrison of Fairfield, a
number of sugar-beet experts from
France, and a little army of field workers, mechanics and machinists are
bending their energies. It is a big enterprise, and in every sense a home industry. The factory will cost $400,000,
and $50,000 more has been expended ln
planting beets. The location is at Wa-
verly, five miles from Fairfield. Mr.
Corbin has agreed to pay this year a
minimum price of $4 for 12 and 14 per
cent beets, and 33 1-3 cents for each degree above fourteen. This offer applies
to all points along the O. R. & N., Mr.
Corbin paying the railroad charges
from the point of shipment to the factory. The bulk of the machinery ls
being built ln the United States—some
at Philadelphia, and other parts at Boston and Chicago. Some special machinery had to be purchased in France
and Germany. The iactory will have
a capacity of 350 tons of beets a day,
or about 40 tons of refined sugar. The
usual "campaign" is from 100 to 120
days, according to the supply of beets.

quantity distributed annually from

The-pokeaiuan-Revicw snys editorially, that the miners leavin.-* tho Slocan country aro expected to take the
places of the strikers in the Coeur
d'Alenes district. If these men had
any desire to figure as scabs, they did
not have to leave the country. The
Spokesman-Review is merely anxious
to discourage the Idaho strikers, and
will strain the truth at any time, if by
doing so they can point a shaft at the
labor unions.
Thu starting up of work On tho public roads in tills vicinity, by ths irov-

the part of the ollicials. Not only :
does it erne at a good time, but it will |
p.ove au economical move, as the rav-
ages t-f the high witters will be checked '

will henceforth become a feature in all
dealings between capital and labor in
regard to tin* working of our mines, it
is meet that ull th"*'*, who are making
their homes in this port ion of our
Dominion, should look the matter of
the wage dispute, between the mine
owners and miners, fairly in tho face,
and with their influence help decide
this question of whether we are to
retain our present intelligent and
law abiding class of miners, or whether
our country is to bo given over to a
class of minors little better thar peons,

No change is noticeable in tho lockout-strike situation. The men, those.
few not employed, appear to have
stronger hopes of soon gaining their
point, than at this time last week. This
sneuis to be the result of various rumors to tho effect that this or (bat
mine was intending to withdraw from
the Mine Owners' Association. The
knowlege that men are going up to
tha Wakefield mine, jn tonnection
with the propo3ed new tramway for property, seems to justify the assertion that a good many outside men
will bo required in a short time around
thst mine. It is probable that the
Essex mine will close down on Monday. On the other hand, prospneting
and prospect work is increasing. In
business circles, things are naturally
