PITTSBURG, , Aug. 12. The iron
Wtean are tonight claiming victory
In the great steel strike. They base
their claim upon the refusal of the
Amalgamated men at South Chicago,
Joliet and Bay View to obey the gen
Aral strike order of President Shaffer
and their sucecu in maintaining oper
ations in other plants where it was
anticipated that there would be seri
The strike leaders meet the claims
of the masters with the assertion that
their cause is making satisfactory
progrc; and that they ' will show
themselves masters of the situation be
fore the contest has progressed much
iurtber. They do not conceal their
disappointment at the refusal of their
western brethren to Join with them in
the strike, but none cf the leaders
would discuss the defection.
The association secretary, however,
gave out an Interview on the general
situation, in which he said:
1 tell you this question will have to
be settled in some way. If not by
peaceful strike, .then by legislation.
If that fails the ballot will Js tried.
If all else fails I believe that it will
result in an appeal to the bayonet. I
tell you, there' Is a condition existing
today that places this country on the
ere of one of the greatest revolutions
that ever could occur in the history
of the world.
Secretary Williams. urged the blame
for the strike upon the refusal" of the
United States steel corporation to ar
bitrate and declared that before the
strike waa over thousands of men in
other trades would be drawn into it
to save the Amalgamated association
and the principles for which it stands.
"We agreed to arbitration because
the business men and citizens of
Pittsburg urged us to do so. We
were willing to risk the interests of
our organization in the hands of oth
ers in this dispute if there was any
prospect for peace. It is practically
the Brst time in the history of our
organization that we have gone this
far. The effect upon the future would
be far-reaching, aa it would enable
manufacturers to ask the same con
cession from us and this we have in
the past declined to grant because we
feared the results. This arbitration
being turned down flat and uncondi
tionally, those who have been urging
as to submit to it will have a chance
to prove their interest and friendship
for us in our inevitable battle with
the greatest trust that was ever or
ganized." Mr. Williams said that the strike
bad been studiously avoided by the of
ficers of the Amalgamated association.
It bad been as studiously encouraged
by the officials of the manufacturers'
organization. The officers of the
Amalgmated association had done all
they could and had ' worked bard to
bring about peace. The battle was
now in the hands of the men, and it
was up to them as to what the out
come would be.

O'NEILL. Neb., Aug. 10. Much ex
citement is being caused here by rea
son of a recent decision of the secre
tary of the Interior with reference to
land allotted to quarter and half-
breed Indians. The syllabus of the
case referred to is aa follows:
'Children born of a white man, a
itizen of tbe United States, and an
Indian woman, bis wife, follow the
status of the father In the matter of
citizenship and are therefore not enti
tled to allotment under section 4, act
of February 8, 1887, as amended by
the act of February 28, 1891."
The decision seems to affect tbe ti
tle to several thousand acres of very
choice land in Bod and Knox coun
ties. In October, 1890, there were al
lotted to the Ponca tribe of Indians in
Nebraska several thousand acres of
land in the above named counties,
which then formed a part of the Pon
ca and Sioux Indian reservations.
Many of tbe allottees were children
born of a white man and an Indian
woman and under the rule then In
force it was thought they were en
titled to an allotment. This ruling
was reversed In the decision above re
S. J. Weeks, register of the United
States land office here, when seen to
day said: "Yes, it Is true that charges
have been preferred by individuals
against a number of Indian allotments

ing in each instance that tbe allottee
in each instance is tbe child of a
white man and a citizen of the Uni

complaint Is accompanied by an ap
plication to enter the land as a home
stead. The homestead application Is
not allowed, but all papers are trans
mitted to the commissioner of the
general land office, and will, as I take
it, if he deems the charges sufficient,
make the matter a subject of Inquiry
by a special agent or order a hearing
at the local land office. In case a

500 acres, or about 3,300 quarter sec
tions. The land was held In reserve,
it Is believed, because the government
anticipated that the cattlemen, who
bad all of the Kiowa-Comanche coun
try leased for pastures, would not be
able to find pastures In Texas or other
cattle grazing sections readily. If the
cattlemen can round up their cattle

ment The period covered by the re
port Is from October 1, 1900, when the
last report from General MacArtbur
was dated. He says: "With the dla
bandment of tbe Insurgents' field ar
mies tbe Filipinos organized desperate-
resistance by banding the people to

This waa carled out by means of secret
committees which collected contribu
tions. Inflicted punishments and car

says he hopes the policy adopted will.

make them friendly to the United

In times past made them suspicious
of any governmental beneficence and
they evidently looked upon the lenient
attitude of the United States as indi
cating weakness. General MacArthur
says tbe proclamation issued on De
cember 20 firmly declaring the Inten
tion of the United States to hold tbe
Islands and have the laws obeyed had
a good effect and the secret resistance
was much abated.
General MacArtbur gives the follow
ing statistics from May 5, 1900, to June
30, 1901 (during which time there were
1,062 contacts between American
troops and insurgents), which show
the casualties on both sides:
Americans Killed, . 245; wounded,
490; captured, 118; missing, 20.
Insurgents Killed 284; wounded,

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 9. Captalt
Seymour of the local detective fore
has disclosed the identity o! i.e mar
whom the police department has it
custody on suspicion of being implicat
ed In tbe robbery of $280,000 worth oi
gold bullion from the Selby Smeltei
works at Vallejo Junction. The sus
pect Is John Winters, 37 years old, a
former employe of tbe smelting com
pany. Captain Seymour also outlined
the evidence on which Winters is being
held as follows:
"A man's cap, which was found lb
tbe railroad tunnel last Tuesday morn
Ing, has been positively .Identified as a
head-covering worn by Winters, and
to strengthen this fact there is tbe
further one that the suspect has been
wearing a new cap ever since tbe time
of the robbery. He explains his losi
of the old one by saying that it blew
"Tbe cover of the tunnel excavated
by tbe thieves was constructed , ol
laths, upon which some cloth was fast
ened with tacks of a peculiar pattern,
and tacks similar to these were found
today in Winter's cabin. Portions ol
laths similar to those composing the
framework of the cover have been
found at tbe same place.
"A pistol owned by Winters and
fotssd in his cabia is covered with
mud, which corresponds exactly with
the earth taken from the tunnel.
"In the tunnel were found several
nieces of pecuilar chalk, which had
oeen j0 sniother the grinding
sound made By o.. -m bv , nlch the
oorplates had been bortt Bn(j pi-p.
of chalk exactly like them were .nrt
Winter's residence. In the cabin
waa also found an implement designed
to cut gasplpe, a small electric battery
and tiny electric bulb, the latter being
covered with dirt islmllar to that in
the tunnel under the vault, Winters
had been seen late at nlgbt In the
vicinity of the railroad tunnel six or
seven times by persons who had occa-
ion to pass that way."
Winters stoutly claims that he knows
nothing whatever about the robbery.
The theory upon which the detectives
are now working on is that tbe robbery
was executed by one man only. It Is
thought that tbe two bars of gold
found at tbe water's edge were placed
there designedly for the purpose of
creating the Impression that the gold
had been carried away in a boat. On
this hypothesis a strict search Is being
made near tbe vicinity of the robbery
for the stolen gold.

It Is expected that It will be on Its

As San Francisco is over 3.000
miles from Panama, the battleship
probably will proceed further down

and there await developments on tbe
