St. Petersburg, -April 12.--The  belated election leturns have only  tended lo increase the magnitude of  the victory of lhe opposition to the  present government party, which  will shortly step down aud out. A  complete re-organization of the cabinet is expected at an early date.  Many people believe that tbe present bitter tight which is being  waged between Premier Witte and  Minister of. the Interior Duronovo  will ultimately result in the resignation of both officials.  New York, April 12.���The anthracite coal mine operators have,  as the result of a meeting which  has just been .held, emphatically declined lo accept the proposal of the  miners to si,bmit to arbitration the  difficulties existing between them.  The ������anthracite miners strike extends to all mines throughout Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Indian Territory and Arizona, ��� ���where everything, is closed  clown and will remain so 'until the  strike is settled.  The soft coal miners have won  their strike for an increase in wages  and have returned to work.  S'lii Francisco, April 12.���The  fiercest riot ever witnessed in this  city occurred yesterday as the result  of a meeting which was held by the  Socialists to expiess their sympathy  with    tbe   officials  of  lhe Western  Federation or Miners who are held  on charges of complicity in the murder of ex-Governor Stuenenberg, of  Idaho,   some   months  The  orators of the Socialists declared  that if the' accused were proven  guilty and convicted.it would .take  the entire army,of the United Slates  lo execute them.

Naples, April 13.���Viewed as a  whole tbe conditions throughout  the area affected 03' the present  eruptions of Vesuvius are much improved this morning as compared  with those of the early hours of  yesterday." Frequent detonations  are still heard but they are decreasing in number and growing less  audible. The crater of the volcano  is gradually getting larger but the  rain of ashes and cinders has greatly  diminished.  .-���New'York, April 13.���A simplified method of spelling many of the  words of the English-, language, as  recommended by Andrew Carnegie,  is to be thoroughly tested immediately by the New York board of  education.  New York, April 13.���President  Castro, of Venezuela, has resigned  from office. He gives as his reason  that he desires to retire to the rest  of private life for some time owing  to the strenuous work which his  position enacts. Castro says that,  should   bis    temporary   separation  from the bead of affairs bring harmony and good-will lo the country,  he is willing to make his letirement  permanent.  London, April 13.���Replying to  a numerously signed Protestant protest against the approaching . marriage of Princess Ena of Battenberg  to Kiirg Alfonso ol Spain, Home  Secretary Gladstone points out that  the assent of King Edward is not  necessary to the marriage.  .Vancouver, April 13.���The C. P.  R. steamer Princess Beatiice sailed  for Skagway and Canadian way  points on Tuesday night. She took  a considerable quantity of building  material for the proposed new hotel  at Conrad, Y. T. 'She also took  some material, for Rivers Inlet ordered by G. I. Wilson, of this city,  for use in. the re-construction of the  Bain-Wilson cannery, which was  blown ��� down last week by a small  tornado. .  GENERAL   NKWSl  Senator Chauncey M.

R. steamer  Princess Victoria aud will tour  Alaska riext mouth.  - "Joe "Gans'-aud- Rufe Turnerrtwo  of the cleverest colored boxers in  the world, are scheduled to fight iii  Seattle next month.  Tbe dock at the foot of Columbia  street, Seattle, collapsed on April  5th. Eighteen persons were thrown  into the water but were rescued.  A Dawson despatch says that the  Guggenheimers are taking over all  the Treadgold interests on Bonanza  creek, aud which they had under  bonds for $500,000.  From Chicago comes tbe statement that Dowie has been deposed  as tbe bead of Zion City aud that  even his wife joined the movement  against him. Wilbur Glen Voliva  is Dowie's successor.  A report from Oerel, Russia, of  April 6th stated that a proclamation  against tbe Jews, which bad been  issued from tbe government printing-  office there, had been widely distributed among tbe people and an  Easier massacre was believed to be  a certainty.1        ,  Russia has submitted a plan to  President Roosevelt to re-convene  tbe Hague peace conference early  in tbe coming summer. The Netherlands have indorsed the proposal.  Since the disposition of the Alge-  ciras affair the powers are free to  act individually.  'A late Madrid despatch said: A  plot to assassinate the whole of the  Spanish royal family during holy  week has been discovered by the  authorities. Anarchists are said to  be the plotters. Details are meagre  as tbe censorship will not allow  news to be given out.  Actual-fighting occurred last week  at. the Edna mine near Irwin, Pa.  The   strikers   were ���licavilv armed  and kept up a steady fire upon the  strike breakers and prevented them  from working. Tbe coal operators  decided that il was unsafe lo try to  further introduce non-union men. -  - Tbe N. W. M. P. patrol which  left Dawson last December for, Fort  Macpherson," near the mouth of the  McKenzie . river, arrived back in  Dawson last week. The officer in  charge ol the patrol, Corp. Mapley,  reports .having encountered severe  cold- weather and deep snow on  tbe way.  General Vou Mack, who is bead  of the Red Cross branch of tbe Russian army, returned to Moscow from  tbe far east last week and created a  sensation there by declaring that  the Japanese are making extensive  preparations for war and will'fight  the Americans for tbe possession of  the Phillippines.    ���  A fire broke out in the eighth  story of tbe Chamber of Commerce  building, Portland, Ore., on April  6th and Horner Allcock,. a prominent railroad man, took to the fire  .escape but its fastenings gave way  and he fell to the walk below and  was instantly killed. Many others  saved their lives by jumping from  tbe eighth story windows into the  iife nets. '��� Mr. Clapp, a club chef,  was injured by breaking through a  life net.  ' 1  At Moscow, ou April 3rd, a leading newspaper published telegrams  from a Harbin correspondent saying  hostilities are imminent between  Russian and Chinese troops. The  Chinese, influenced by Tapan, are  moving forward 011 the Russians.  Demobilization of tbe Russian army  had been stopped and General Groi-  doff, the Russian commander iu  chief, bad issued orders lo prepare  for an emergency and, if an .attack  is made, to occupy tbe Chinese  strongholds. Tbe situation was  becoming intense.  The Russian aud Chinese ministers in conference at Pekin over the  Matichurian question had, orr April  6th, failed to arrive at an agreement.  Russia demands that all the privileges she now enjoys iu Manchuria  be permanently guaranteed. On  the other hand it is the determined  policy of China to withstand all  foreign encroachments upon her  territory. Both countries have  powerful armies stationed in Manchuria ready for immediate action  and open hostilities ���. are liable to  break out at any time.      '"���'���  A Naples despatch of the 7th inst  says: Large streams of lava are  pouring from Mount Vesuvius,  which is again in active eruption,  aud from which the beat is felt for  miles. Ottajaiio aud Torre del  Greco, cities of twenty and thirty  thousand people respectively, are  threatened with destruction. Bos-  cotveaz is being evacuated aud residents of villages for miles around  are panic stricken and fleeing for  safety. The churches are filled with  men, women and children carrying  statues and praying for a miracle to  stop the deathly and destructive  flow.  <&.  <r  if'  ];  i-"il  , 1  !���-.

Students   of   the    Hills.  Possibly'no class of. working people have so  great    an   opportunity  and   provocation   to read and study  as   intelligent   gold   miners.    As a  rule they work fewer hours   in   the  day,    and    nights.  Sundays and iu  stormy weather the quiet   of   their  cabins   is  undisturbed by the cares  of a family.    Persons   who   never  lead before do solo kill tlie lonesome  hours that maybe fullpf sad memories,'and to drive   away regrets   for  ill success.    By crowding  tbe mind  to repletion-they deaden the   fangs  of   "hunger of   tbe heart," which,  undiverted, would   often sink sadly,  in   its chamber when   no   familiar  voice   of   olden   time smote ou its  sounding   board.     In   the   outset,,  when nothing better could  be  had,  they may have read novels, good or  bad,   but it is entirely possible that  more is known in the cabin   homes  in western gold fields of the works of  standard authors in both poetry and  prose, than   within an equal area of  where these productions   emanated.  Now that other books in abundance  are   within   easy reach,  and  novel  reading is   left to   inferior   intelligence?, tbe higher order  of   minds  follow   the  pen tracks of the historian, poet  or essayist.    It is not uncommon   in   latter mining days on  cabin shelves to  find   Shakespeare.  Byron,    Macaulay,    historical     or  classical   works   ol   American   and  English   literature,   and   once   tbe  writer was more  than   surprised   at  finding, lucked between  the logs of  the cabin, a copy of  "Demosthenes  on    the   Crown."     Asking   "Who  reads Greek in lhis ranch?" a rough-  looking  man, kneading   bread, replied   that   he  "used to read il in a  New   Kugland   College,"'  and had  "brought it from home among other  traps.'*    fn  another instance iu the  northern mountains, a .Yale graduate  named Wells, who  bad come to the  land   of  gold with tbe early rush,  was   possessor   of   a   little  Hbr.iry  which vouched for his scholarly attainments   and   advanced    literary  taste.    But Wells   found' himself lo  be physically unequal to the task of  delving for gold, and   had   bravely  assumed   the  duties  of chef with a  prosperous mining.company, a position which he tilled with rare credit  to himself and the unbounded satisfaction of those be served.   An early  days friend who mined a few  years  showed the writer a copy of "Webster's  Unabridged"  which   hiuiself  and   companions   packed  all   over  Northern California, and to which  final reference was made in political  discussions. These may be extraordinary instances, but they'are  mentioned only as cases of devotion  lo letters under difficulties. "While  1 write the sail truth I hat very many  miners waste their spare hoursand  their money in places of dissipation,  il is gratifying to know that a great  number are more profitably occupied.  It is not easy to estimate the result of these quid hours, days and  months of cabin-home reading and  reflection. Possibly many a 'romance or poem has lent its aid as  the result of a pacific literature, to a  statesman, who arose lo prominence  independent of the lifting hooks of  party. Men whose genius has split  despotic thrones and made republics  of the fragments have come unheralded from among the people,  aud writers whose pens have left  traces of living lire have studied and  written in the obscurity of a hovel.  Within the humblest cottage'df the  masses, aud guided by a youth untried in battle, the v-pen of true  genius is as mighty as the sword of  the Corsican.���San Francisco Mining aud Engineering Review.
