five or thirty men on the train. All of

in a dnagerons condition. The aooi

Duty—Mayor Farley Say. He 1. the Su-
preme Power and Will Bun Thing, to
Cleveland, O., July 28—Slowly and
surely law and order is triumphing over
lawlessness and disorder and the oity is
beginning to resume its old appearance.
Today the street oars were well patron-
ized, especially during the busy hours
of the morning and evening. This is
said to be the best indication of the gov-
ernment winning in the straggle.
Mayor Farley is-well pleased with the
sitnation, bat has not relaxed his vigi
lance one whit and will not until the
last vestige of disorder is wiped away.
The mayor and Adjutant General Ax
line are at present involved in a con-
troversy over what the troops shall do
and what they shall not do. The adju-
tant general is of the opinion that the
duty of the national gnard is merely to
pat down rioting and not to do police
duty. Whatever the duty of the na-
tional gnard may be, Mayor Farley
holds that the troops are nnder his
anthoritv and they will remain here
until he feels they can be dispensed
The responsibility of preserving or-
der in the oity rests upon the shoulders
of the mayor, he says, and he proposes
to see his plans are not interfered with
by any one. He declares he is to be the
judge as to when the troops are not
wanted. There has been several out-
breaks between Mayor Farley and Ad-
jutant General Axline within the last
few days over this question. Today the
mayor refused to discuss the difficulty,
saying this is no time to stir up any dis-
cord. “I will merely reiterate my
statement of last Light, ” said the mayor.
“This is the time for every man to mind
his own business. ”
The mayor takes but little interest in
the talk of boycotting merchants. He
believes just as soon as quiet is restored
and the fever is gone, all such talk will
cease. Boycott, he feels, is against na-
tural laws. That a man will not pay
six cents for an article that oan be pur-
chased for five and a man will not walk
a mile to make a purchase when he can
get what he wants at a quarter of a

Honolulu, via San Francisco, July
38—August 12th, the first anniversary
of the day on which the Amerioan flag
was raised over this oonntry, will be
observed as a holiday thronghont Ha-
waii. This was decided upon at a reoent
cabinet meeting. President Dole said
it was desired to make the day a me-
morable one. Senator C. D. Clark, of
Wyoming, who is visiting the islands,
in a reoent interview, said:
“There is not a member of oongress
that has anything in mind for Hawaii
save the most liberal form of govern-
ment. Yon are not merely assured of a
territorial form of government, but
you will have local privileges here that
territories recently admitted to the
anion were forbidden. Yon may tell
the people of the islands that their fear
of a colonial government is without
f-mndation. I know whereof I speak.
Not a man in congress wants to fee
such a form of government for Hawaii.
And President McKinley, an enthusiast
of Hawaii, is of the same mind.”

Coal Companies Failed to Comply With the
Fort Smith, Ark., July 28-The
grand jury of this oounty returned four-

Wee tern Coal & Mining company and
the Central Coal & Coke company for
violation of the screen law, passed by
the last legislature, which went into ef-
fect July 10. The companies failed to
comply with the law and continued to

The superintendents of the companies’

Pullman Palleee Car Company Will Have
to Pay Dp.
Denver, Colo. July 28—Secretary of
State Beckwith who has been on a still
hunt for revenues far the state for some
time seems to have struck a lead which
bid fair to yield a considerable amount.
A number of large corporations are
said to be doing business in the state
without having paid the full fee re
quired by the state. One of these is
the Pullman Palaoe Car company. The
company filed its papers in Colorado in
1892 showing its capital stock to be
$100,000. Since that time the oompany
has increased its stock to $54,000,000.
The fee due the state is $8,086, and this
amount the secretary proposes to col-
lect. He thinks he may find a number
of handsome fees.
A MEMORIAL ISSUED.
Are Opposed to the Taking of Human Life
' Without Trial.
Indianapolis, July 28—The Indiana
Afro-American league today issued a
memorial to the country at large per-
tinent to the race problem. It pro-
nonnoed in strong terms against the
taking of human life without trial by
jury, and charged that within the past
seven years, over thirteen hundred peo-
ple have been lynched or bnrned alive
in the South. Less than one third of
these it is asserted, had not been ac-
cused of assault upon women. It favor-
ed the death penalty for the crime of
rape after conviction in the courts.
ERNEST GENTRY REURNINU.
He I* Wanted at Alamogordo for Stealing
Redding, Cal., July 28—Sheriff Chas.
F. Blackington, of Socorro county, N.
M, started back today with Ernest
Gentry, who is wanted at Alamogordo
for stealing $6,000 in government script.
The penalty for robbery in New Mexico
is death by hanging. The sheriff con-
siders Gentry a desperate man and to
prevent his esoape Sheriff Blackington
had his prisoner handcuffed and his
feet shaokled. The New Mexico sheriff
has killed several men and he savs he
will kill another if Gentry makes the
slightest attempt to get away.
New York, July 28—The stock mar-
ket wae strong and early traders gen-
erally ranged themselves on the long
side. Shorts took alarm from yester-
day’s rise and continued at an upward
tendency this morning and covered
rather extensive lines. The sentimental
effect of this buying was even more
pronounced than the direct demand for
stocks. Business fell off, however, very
notably in the afternoon. The public
showed itself still coy about coming
forward and ball operators in conse-
quence proceeded to take their profits
on the advance.

The Whole Island of
Hawaii is Enveloped
STILL IN FULL BLAST.
Hatching Forth Smoke and Fire and Bock*
Big ns Horses—Vessels Encounter
Clond* of Smoke Hundreds of Miles Out
nt Sea—Lava Flow la Apparently Killing
Up the Table Land.
Honolulu, July 21, via San Fran-
cisoo, July 28—The volcanic eruption of
Manna Loa is still in fall blast. The
lava flow is apparently filling np the
table land near the Hnmnla sheep
ranoh. Hilo and the whole island of
Hawaii is enveloped in smoke. Vessels
encounter dense clouds of smoke
hundreds of miles oat at sea, and navi-
gators are seriously inconvenienced.
The Kilanea is also smoking freely, and
indications are that this volcano will
soon be in active eruption.
Frank Davey returned from a visit to
the volcano. He says there are a series
of eight orators. Five of them were
dead, bnt appeared to have been active
finite recently. One of the others is
belohing forth smoke and fire and
molten rooks of great size. According
to Davey the rooks are as big as horses
and went so high they oooled before
falling to the ground again. It took
Davey and party fifteen honrs to asoend
the mountain from an active crater to
the summit, where the horses were left.
Two of the men became delirious on
their way for the want of water. The
trip is described as a terrible one in the
extreme. All around the top of the
mountain it was cold. At the crater it
was very hot. The extremes were such
as to knock almost anybody out.
J S Pratt was oanght on a high
knoll upon Manna Loa on two sides of
which lava was flowing. The sun was
nearly down. He did not know which
way to go and spent the night there.
He sat np all night and watched the
lava flow. When the fumes were
blown his way he would have to lie
down ou bin,face to keep from suffo-
cating. The next morning he found
his way out by foliowing back down be-
tween the two flows.

our stock before the arrival
of heavy fall purchases, we
