The Chaplain's Collection.
Kev. Benjamin F. Diffenbacher,
late chaplain of the Nebraska house
of representatives, delivered a very
enjoyable lecture at MeKendree M.
E. church, Massachusetts avenue,
last evening. He has collected a
large number of stereopticon views
of persons, places and public build
ings during his six months in
Washingion, which were thrown on
the canvass by Prof. I. I J. Murray.
The chaplain is a ready speaker,
and his explanations and comments
gave effect to the views presented.
It is understood that the lecturer
will exhibit his pictures to the peo
ple of his state in the near future.
Those who feel an interest (as all
must) in the beauties of the
National Capital citj-, and in those
illustrious personages whose lives
are so interwoven with our coun
try's history, will find that the
chaplain's collection has been made
with rare judgment, a id that his
investigations enable him to im
part a great deal of valuable infor
mation. Washington Post.

FOURTEEN .MEN WEICK KILLED,
The Conflict Was at tho Com and
Frisco Mines The Deadly
Work Was Done by Ex
Wallace, Idaho, July 11. The
strained situation in the Coeur
d'Alene labor troubles culminated
this morning between 5 and 0
o'clock. The Gem and Frisco, non
union mines, were guarded by men
behind barricades armed with Win
chesters. This morning a miner
from the Gem started for Hurke.
When opposite the Frisco mine he
was fired upon. Soon the miners in
town armed themselves. They
marched in a body toward the
Frisco mills. When scarcely within
rille range a' volley from the mine
greeted them. They scattered and
a regular battle ensued. One miner
and one non-union man were
killed, and perhaps six were
wounded during the engagement.
The miners in the meantime loaded
a Union Pacific car with 750 pounds
of giant powder and sent it down
the track toward the Frisco mine.
Directly in front of the mill the ex
plosion occurred, shattering the
mill and making it a complete
The non-union men then showed
the white Hag and surrendered.
They marched the miners to Union
men and guarded them. No indig
nities were offered after the surren
der. While the fight was going on
at the Frisco, the Gem guards sud
denly began firing volley after vol
ley into the town of Gem, riddling
the buildings with bullets. John
Ward was wounded in the arm and
Gus Carlson, a union miner, was
killed. All attempts to recover
Carlson's body were met with a vol
ley, and when the body was recov
ered an hour afterwards he was
At JS o'clock a truce occurred and
the sheriff, district attorney and
deputy United States marshals ap
pearing upon the scene, peace nego
tiations were immediately set on
foot and a truce declared, and at 12
o'clock the mine force surrendered
to the union men.
The number killed so far as
learned was fourteen and about ten
wounded, though there may be
bodies under the Frisco mill. De-
sides Carlson, Farry, Cunimings
and two other unknown men killed
and wounded, Hugh Campbell and
J. W. Gakardoger will die, also Sam
Peters and Pettibone.
Later It is reported that twenty
non-union men were killed in the
explosion of the mill at the Frisco
mine. No confirmation has been
History of the Trouble.
The Frisco and Gem are the onty
two union mines in the east end of
Couer d'Alene. The strike in Couer
d'Alene began about nine months
ago. The fight was between the
miners and Mine Owners' associa
tion, organized to resist the de
mands of the miners union. Twelve
miners; including all the leading
ones, are included in the organiza
tion, and money has been freely
contributed to carry on the fight.
The former rates of wages were
$3.50 per day to miners and shovel
ers, and the strike of the miners
grew out of a reduction in the shov
elers wages to $3 per day. All min
ers working under ground demand
ed $3.50. There were several acts of
hostility when the strike began but
the miners union did its best to pre
vent by peaceable means, men work
ing at the reduced wages. The
United States circuit court issued
an injunction forbidding an3rone
interfering with the men employed
hy the company or the mine prop
erty. About two months ago mat
ters were straightened out and work
went on as usual, but since the Car
negie trouble began the old ques
tion of wages has been revived by
the men and resulted in to-day's
bloodshed. A Spokane telegram
says that the union men at the
Poorman and Tiger mines quit
work and captured all the non-union
men working in the union mine
