A WARRING PEOPLE.
Soma Startling Stories of Chili's Interne
Panama, April ll.--The Aryea Ta
cora sailed 'on Feb. 23. The steamer
which arrived Sunday was the Mount
Tabor, which brought 100 refugees from
Iquique, and the majority of them at
once proceeded by train to Tacua. A
correspondent writes from Iquique that
what is occurring in the unfortunate
port is something unheard of, and it
leads one to believe that no civilized be
ings live there. Fassengers state tliat
the vagabonds there are robbing, plun
dering, murdering, violating women,
and committing all classes of atrocities,
while incendiaries are also engaged In
their nefarious und villauious operation
of destruction and pillage.
The Lima Diario of March 13, says:
The government of Chili has determ
ined to establish an army :00,000 strong
at Tarapaca, and in it the corps will be
massed which are now scattered and
which consists of 3,000 men at Autofa
gasta, ft.000 at At annua and 3.000 at
Coquimbo. The determination to mass
this army waa reached subsequent to
the fall of Iquique."

A Constable Fatally Ronton.
Burlington, la., April 14. One of
the most outrageous scenes which ever
disgraced the city of Burlington oc
curred at 10 a. m. Constable (jreen of
Mediapolis came to Burlingtou in the
interest of the Law and Order League.
He was in the act of serving injunction
notices when a mob of saloon keeiiers
set upon him and probably fatally beat
him. He was knocked down and kicked
and stamped, his skull was fractured and
one eye gouged out. He was finally res
cued from the infuriated gang in an in
sensible condition. Several respectable
citizens who attempted to rescne the
unfortunate young man were driven
away with threats of personal violence,
lynching, etc. The better class of the
people are indignant over the outrage,
while among the saloon followers there
is great rejoicing. Three or four free
tights have already grown out of the de
plorable affair, and it is not known just
where the matter will end.
Murdered by Indians.
Blackfoot, Idaho, April 14. Great
excitement was caused over the killing
by Indians of two nnknown white emi
grants who were encamped a mile be
low this place. Nothing could be learned
as to the cause of the tragedy. Their
bodies were found by a party of men
and a number of Indians were seen
taking to the hills east of here. Busi
ness is suspended and the citizens are
np in arms. About one hundred armed
and mounted men have left the city to
demand the snrrender of the. guilty
partiex. Should the Indians refuse
trouble is sure to follow, as they are all
determined men. The government and
the adjutant general have been, tele
graphed in regard to the anair.
Later The excitement is abating. The
Indian police are on the track of the
Almost a Lynching.
New York, April 14. This city came
near being the scene of a lynching, and
it was only the timely arrival of an offi

avenue and Forty-ninth street. The
clothes line bad already been provided

anu i lie inou was uustiiug uavis aiong
to his doom when he was rescued. The
excitement was all caused by Davis'
cruel treatment of a 10-year-old boy,
Hugh Mooney. The boy's refusal to
buy beer for the young man caused the
brutal assault of the latter."He knocked
the boy down and kicked him until he
was almost insensible, and it was this
that enraged the crowd that set upon
him. The boy was seriously injured
and Davis was locked up.

Seeker at Ashland.
Ashland, Wis., April 14. The com
mencement of serious trouble at the
rear o( the United States land office
among film ou Omaha land was made
about 3 a.m., when about one hundred
invaders nnder the leadership of J. D.
Day, a lumberman and lawyer of Chip
pewa Falls, made a silent descent uixm
the sleeping filers. The crowd had
quickly collected at one of the hotels
and marched to within a block of the
land office when they filed between the
two buildings and approached the line
from the rear. They were stopped by
the police who threatened them with
death if they attempted to molest the
men in line or approach nearer. The
men were held at bay until davlight,
when the day force arrived aud they
were allowed to come nn abrea-t of the
original line. C. T. Macmiller. who
owns a large part of the ground back of
the land office, made a demand on the
men on his property to move. They did
so, and now a high and heavy fence ha
been built-around a large portion, and
other men have been permitted to go in
side on the payment of a certain sum.
The men driven from the ground moved
ahead of the ground in question and
stopped ahead of the leaders of the in
vading crowd. There are fully five
hundred men formed in tour separate

can promise you a sensation in the
course of ten days. I have been making
an investigation there -and have .evi
dence that the contract alien labor law
has been and is being grossly violated.
Certain large concerns there employ a
large number of men and have lieen im
porting alien laborers in direct defiance
of the law. It will be a big surprise, a
the concerns implicated are known all
over the world and have a reputation
for honesty that has been unquestioned.
There are also several other cities when
the investigation proved that the law if
being violated, but in no place are cast
so flagrant as in Omaha."

Colonists for Tonolobainno.
Abilene, Kan., April 14. Despite the
reports of suffering in Topolobampo,
another party of nearly three hundred

impoverished settlers and families, and
go in hope of getting work ou the co
operative company's irrigation ditches.
They have no money and poor clothing,
but believe the company's agents' glow

thence south 501) miles, mostly by

A ROSEATE VIEW.
President Polk ou the Power of the
THE POLITICAL FUTUBE.
He Trod let That th Farmers Will Tet
Control the Destlnie of the Nation
lb Italian Imbroglio Per'
Washington, April tt.-t'ol. Polk,
the president of the Farmers' Alliance,
is bending every energy to holding his
organization together and to increase
its strength numerically. He has some
interesting views on the situation, which
he is not pack ward in proclaiming. He
predicts that the farmers will yet con
trol the destiny of the nation, and he
foretells the destruction of both the
Democratic and Republican parties. The
Democratic party, he says, will die of
old mossback traditions nnless the
younger element is'allowed to dominate,
and as for the Republican party, it is
controlled by capitalists, aud therefore
corrupt to the core. Mr. Polk wonders
that the farmers have not long ago
arisen in their might and swept both
from the field. Cleveland, Mr. Folk
thinks, will be the Democratic candi
date, and his nomination will lie dic
tated by Wall street. The sauw in
fluence, be says, will nominate an anti
silver Republican. I
The hope of the Democrats is to fcave
the election of president thrown into
the house, through forcing the) Aflfciice
party to place a third candidate ill the
field, but Mr. Polk says there would le
more likelihood of the Alliance asreep
ing the country than there would of the
Democratic plan carrying. '
The purpose of the Alliance, accord
ing to President Polk, is to force V fight
on free coinage. On that issue, he
says, his party can win. Both old par
ties have declared for free coinage, but
they have always strangled it in con
gress, and the time has gone by, iccord
mg to Alliance theory, for the people to
be deceived further. The Republican
Srogramme, Mr. Polk says, will be to
ivert the attention of the country
from the money question by raising the
issue of sectionalism. Without section
alism, he says, the Republican party
could not exist, hence the force hill.
"Wall street wauted the force bill
passed, because it would have placed
the money question in the background;
but the force bill waa defeated, aud the
importance of the money question re
mains where we want it.
Mr. Polk thinks it possible that a
western Democrat may be nominated
by the Democrats and a southern Alli
ance man placed on the ticket as e, com'
promise, but that is only conjecture.
Beliglon in Russia.
Washixotos, April 14. Ker. L.
Mueller, a native of St. Petersburg, de
livered a lecture here on the persecu
tion of Lutherans in Russia. He
gave a historical review of Lutherans
2 t, : i . i j. : .
in ivussii, uegiiiiuug wilji aunurpuuu ol
the Baltic provinces by Peter the Great
in 1721. Mr. Mueller claimed that no
Lutheran has been exiled to Siberia for
being concerned in Jitical plots or
conspiracies, and iu the great Lutheran
university at Dorpol, where there are
1,300 students, there has never been a
revolt or uprising. The Greek church
has been forcing Lutheranism to the
wall by royal enactments, and the relig
ious freedom guaranteed to the Baltic
provinces, Finland and Poland are total
ly disregarded. Mr. Mueller suggests
as a remedy for this state of affairs the
creation of an international sentiment
and the insistence of European govern
ments in their treaties with Russia,
upon the incorporation into such treaties
of provisions securing immunity from
laws regulating religious profession,' as
sociation and oliservance. This would
result in the isolation of Russia and
would compel her to yield from motives
of policy, if fot no higher reason.
The Italian Imbroglio.
Washington, April 14. But two
facts could be added to the public stock
of information respecting the diplomatic
entanglement with Italy, growing out
of the-New Orleans tragedy. One of
these was that the state department has
not received any information from the
Italian government- that its last note
must be answered before a giveudato.
Nor is such an intimation exacted, for
the department feels that it is acting
properly, and it would be a very un
usual course for a nation engaged in
diplomatic negotiations to question the
motives upon which correspondence
proceeds. ' The second fact is that Sec
retary Blaine's answer to Marquis
lludini's last note has not yet been for
warded. It was probably the secretary's
purpose to accompany the reply with
an official statement touching the na
tionality of the New Orleans victims
and other facts that were expected from
officials of the department of justice in
New Orleans. These report have not
yet reached Washington. Unless the
secretary is prepared to send the letter
without these) fact, it is not likely to
go forward immediately,

A Doal Between tie liner and Dealers to

Nsw York, April 14. Reports have
been current for some day on the sugar
market that a combination has been
formed between the sugar trust, all the
eastern refiner and th Wholesale
Grocers' association to acquire complete
control of the sugar trade. It is known
that negotiations have bten pending be
tween independent refiners, the sugar
trust and the wholesale dealers to handle
all sugar refined in this country, and
boycott the renned sugars or foreign
countries. So far the deal has resulted
only in an association of the refiners. It
was stated that ciaus rtpreckies, r.. u.
Knight, Harrison & Frazer, end all the
independent sugar refiners hove entered
into an agreement with the trust to
work in harmony with its munagers.

New York, April 14. Mrs, James
G. Blaine, Jr., is about to take up her
residence in South Dakota, She will
reside there long enough to obtain an
absolute divorce from her husband, the
youngest sou of the secretary of state.
Mr. Blaine has been contemplating
taking this step fur some time, but it
has been carefully kept secret.
The rumor that young Mrs. Blaine's
divorce will be followed soon by her
marriage to one of the uiost eminent
professional men in this city has been
current for some months, but the inter
esting fact that among their friend this
rnmor has already become almost a con

Blaino's cure is attributed, is now made
public for the first time,

CniCAflo, April 14. A new phase of
the controversy between the Alton and
astern lines on the commission ques
tion i introduced in a circular issued
by the passenger department of the Al
ton, It is addressed to all connections
and contains all the correspondence on
the subject. An interesting feature is a
copy of a letter signed by General So
licitor Brown of the Alton, declaring
that, in his opinion, a number of rail
way companies have no legal right to
combine together and take concerted
action to interrupt the business of the
Alton as a penalty of its refusal to enter
Into any contract with them. Such a
combination amounts in law to con
spiracy. He suggests that it will be
well for the management to notify each
boycotting line of the purpose of the
Alton to hold them legally responsible
for the coiiNeqneiices of their action.
General Passenger Agent Charlton
notihi-s them accordingly that they will
be held responsible for anjr damage
which may result. It remains to be
seen what eastern roads have to say to
It is rumored in railroad circles that
the Missouri Pacific will not be repre
sented at the meeting. of the advisory
board of the Western Traffic associa
tion, us Jay Gould is in the southwest
and Vice President Clark in Oregon. If
the meeting is ignored by the company
it can mean nothing else than a dissolu
tion of the association at even an earlier
date than was generally predicted. The
charges of rato cutting recently made
against the Missouri Pacific were to be
investigated at this meeting.
The tight between the Chicago, St.
Paul and Kansas City, and the Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul roads over the
excursion business from Des Moines to
Dubuque has resulted in a charge being
filed against the former by the bitter

Omaha, Neb., April 14.-The litiga
tion growing out of the boycott of the
American Live Stock Commission com
pany by the Omaha Stock Yard was set
tled by the filing of articles in which
the former agrees to pay no more re
bates, m return for having the usual
rights accorded its agents at the yards.
This virtually disposes of the trouble

The situation at Denver. j
Denver, .Colo., April 14. The strike
of the Burlington avitchmen in this
city is dead. The Rio Grande began
handling Burlington cars, the other
roads did the same and business was
moving as if there had been no strike at
all. When the new of the action of
the board of federation at Lincoln was
received it put an end to all hope that
the switchmen had of assistance from
other trainmen. There will be no de
lay in Burlington business, which will
go on as if no strike had ever occurred.
Its only effect has been to throw twenty-one
men out of work, which they will
all need before they get another job.
The only hope of success which the
strikers at any time had was to involve
the trainmen of other roads. This they
have not done aud the Burlington re
mains master of the'sitnatioii.
