deputies have the situation in hand at

race riots occurred, although the negro
miners refuse to work and continue to

no right to disarm them, and, with few
exceptions, they are prepared for any

men has been placed on duty for fear of
an outbreak during the night.
A coroner's Jury held an Inquest over
the remains of Ellis and Samuels. A
physician's sworn testimony was to the
effect that both negroes were shot in
the back. Ellis' body was pierced with
twenty-flve buckshot from a double
barreled shotgun, and Samuels was
killed with a Winchester rifle.
The postmaster at Bloasburg testi
fied that shortly before the killing he
heard the negroes talking to their
comrades in regard to a speech made
to them by the sheriff, saying If they
would disarm they would be protected.
Ellis claimed this was a lie, and de
clared he would not return to work
until his Winchester had been emptied.

great amount of soliciting will be nec

General Otis has cabled the war de
partment that he has the skeleton or
ganizations of two or three regiments
which it is proposed to raise in the
Philippines. At the war department
this was said to mean that General
Otis has the officers for these regiments
elected and that they are ready to be
filled with enlisted men. , How many
of these can be secured from the vol
unteer regiments now In the Philip
pines is not known. It is stated at the
war department that the recruits now
being enlisted at the rate of 1,000 a
week cannot be used for the volunteer
army provided for in the act of March
!, authorizing 35,000 men, although it
would be an easy matter to transfer
these men with their own consent to
the volunteer Bervlce if It should be
letermined to raise additional troops. -WILL,
Later in the day it was definitely de
cided to begin the enlistments for the
rolunteer service under the ace of the
last congress. The reports to the ad
jutant general, based on the reports of
the recruiting officers and on close esti
mates as to the number of soldiers in
the Philippines and in each command In
Cuba and Porto Rico, show that the
regular army is up to its full author
ised strength. The additional soldiers
seeded must be obtained under that
action of congress authorizing the en
Jstment of volunteers. The only ex
ception will be In the case of the few
nlistments that will be made from
time to time to fill gaps In the regular
irmy caused by casualties and by the
expirations of enlistments.
The officers scattered among the prin
cipal cities of the country who have
jeen enlisting regulars only will be in-
tructed immediately to prepare to en
list volunteers. The present Indica
tions are that about 10.000 men will be
Volunteers will not be accepted in
Secretary Alger Is determined to ad
here to that rule. Looking over the
let of congress he has concluded that
the authorisation to raise these volun
teer troops "at large," indicates a pur
pose on the part of congress to follow
ut the plan successfully operated In
the case of immune regiments. It
Is the present purpose to disregard
state and local lines in securing the
recruits and welding them Into organi
sations. Regiments will be designated
the First, Second, Third, etc, volunteer
United States infantry or cavalry. No
llffleulty Is anticipated In securing the
men needed. It is believed that the
1,000 men who are weekly offering them
selves at the recruiting offices will be
even more willing to enter the army as
two years' volunteer than a long
PLANS FOR GOOD OFFICERS.
Officers for these volunteer regiments
will be obtained by promoting officers
3f the regular army, and by commis
sioning many of the best officers of the
volunteer organisations which saw
lervlce. The war department has care
fully preserved the records of these
officers and has at hand a long list of
tuch of them as exhibited soldierly and
groes came to their death at the hands
of unknown parties.
Shortly after this two white men, one
nrmed with a Winchester and the other
with a shotgun, were seen walking
down the road to the gin town. Ellis
left shortly after them. It was but a
few minutes when shots were heard.
Ellis was found lying on his face in the
road, and his body was beaten by a
drenching rain for several hours.
Adam Samuels was killed while go

In seventy-five yards of the prostrats
body of Ellis a Winchester ball brought
him down. Two negroes then ran to
Samuel's assistance. He told them ha

stooped to pick him up, and while In
a crouching position they were fired on.
The negroes then fled In every direc?
tion, and the three bleeding negroes
were left in the road for an hour. A
white man with a shotgun met a crowd
af miners further down the road.
"I have killed the meanest negro in
Blossburg," said he. "Look out for my
family, boys." He has not been seen
since. , I
It is said by the negroes that th
white men who did the shooting were
secreted In a box car on the railroad
track. A physician testified that the

Mr. Nelson, who is one of the leading

declared that the co-operative method
showed great advantages over the com

argument for co-operation In manufac

,'ar Leow, one of the expert vegetari
pathologists of the agricultural depart

treatment for germ diseases which

The treatment is similar In some re-
pects to the serum treatment, but de
sends on a different principle, the basic
idea by the presence of a class of fer
ments known as enzymes, which are
produced by the same bacteria that
produce the disease.
Dr. Leow and his colleague, Dr. Em
merich, have studied and cultivated the
enzymes of various diHeases, and it is
:!aimed have found that enzymes of
:ertaln bacteria will kill not only their
parent germs, but also the germs of
cholera, typhoid fever, anthrax, diph
theria, black plague, staphlococcl and
probably gonococcl. An enzyme that
will be fatal to tuberculosis Is being
(ought, though the bacillus of tubercu
losis seems to be incapable of produc
ing an enzyme that Is fatal to itself.
This Is also true of the black plague
and for this reason the serum of black
plague was applied without success In
the cases recentlyd eveloped In one of
the laboratories in Vienna.
The ensymes are very unstable pro
ducts, and for this reason quickly de
teriorate, but Dr. Leow believes he has
found a method of preserving them la
shape for use. The further development
of this form of treatment isawalted
with interest by scientists.
