DlM.-'Jj^i-- cape (fc HOUOHTON, Mich., Sept. 8.—Huge volumes of Smoke are Still issuing forth from the mouths of shafts Kos. 1, 2 and 8, which shows that the awful fire which started in the Osceola coppel mine shortly before noon Saturday is still raging fiercely, and the bodies oi the 30 miners entombed are still lying somewhere below the surface without a doubt dead, suffocated by smoke and ga?. Captain P. Richards, with a gang of Keren men, went down No. 5 shaft during the evening and went about 70C feet toward No. 4 shaft, when they had to turn and flee for their lives on account of the smoke and gas. Some oi these men were very nearly overcome, only reaching surface Jii Time to SnVe Their Lives. It is learned that the place where the fire caught was the worst place that it could have caught in the whole mine, and the only place in the mine where fire of any extent could have caught. Many of the men that were working several levels below the 27th, in which the fire caught, were seen as far up as the 18th "level, working their way up. Several of the men who escaped claim to have passed others on the ladders who were unable to proceed further on account of being overcome with smoke and gas. At the time the alarm was sounded over 200 were underground, and all could have escaped had they used proper precaution. Several miners iu their flight passed a group of seven or eight men who had stopped to rest and were smoking their pipes. When told to hurry to the surface, they remarked that they had plenty of time and Not One of Them Reached Surface. The skips were kept running up and down all day Saturday in order to give any of the entombed miners a chance to escape if they could reach the skip alive, but none came up. There is no danger of the bodies being burned, as it is generally tnought that the men escaped from the burning shaft to some of the drifts leading to other shafts and were overcome by gas and smoke before they could reach a place of safety. This being the case, the bodies will be recovered as soon as the fire is gotten under control and the gases leave the mine. The shaft has been surrounded all day by thousands of people, all hoping that some sign or word would be gotten from the men, but have now all returned to their homes fearing the worst. All hope has been given up by the officials of ever rescuing any of the men alive. StMMAtt OF WEEK'S HEWS NEW YORK, Sept, 7.-Oareful observers of Northern Pacific affairs were^ not surprised at Judge Hanford's decision at Seattle. It was known that both he and Judge Gilbert he-Id a strong neutral position, and that personal considerations would have no weight m their court. In general the decision has taken Wall street by surprise. Some financiers are thunderstruck at its sweeping character. Its logical sequence will te the speedy removal of the three receivers and the. appointment of others that will be friendly to the Ives interest and antagonistic to Vfflard, Oakes and the rest The decision of Judges Gilbert and Stanford paralyzes the, present receivership, and, in the opinion of people here, may lead to the resignation of Receiver Oakes and his associates, despite the vigorous demand of eX'Seiiator Spoonerfor longer time. They have been allowed only a month to answer the charges made by President Ives. This indicates that Judge Hauford is disposed to act promptly and put new men in charge at the first opportunity. Strengthens Hill's 1'osltlnii. The effects of the Seattle decision are far reaching and sensational. ; It, Weakens, if it does not destroy, Villard s influence in Northern Pacific aftaifs. It ought to strengthen Mr. Hill's position in"some respects and weaken it in others. It eliminates the Adams committee, which, as stated, has opposed him stealthily as well as openly m recent days. On the other hand it makes stronger the Ives element, which at present is opposed to union. The decision lias comic aspects. It shows that three men have had control for nearly two years of a great railroad and handled over $82,000,000 without genuine authority. Holders of receivers' certificates may feel uncomfortable, but the validity of such may be good, ot course, in some form or other. The validity of the Oakes receivership may be carried to the United States supreme court, but at present its actual extinction is deemed inevitable. Receivers May Appeal. MILWAUKEE, Sept, 6.—Receiver Payne of the Northern Pacific road, who has been to the Pacific coast for a vacation, is on his way home, but has not yet reached this city. In his absence nothing can be learned about the probable action of the receivers. Their attorneys declined to talk about the matter or to say whether or not an appeal would be taken. Mr. Payne is now in Canada, and is not likely to reach Milwaukee before Thursday. LI HUNG CHANG'S PROCLAMATION. Sept. 3. H. M. Bird of St. Paul won five bicycle races at La Crosse.

NEW YORK,Sept. 7.—Robert E. Speer, secretary of the board of foreign missions of the Presbyterian church in the United States.has received a letter from Rev. I. W. Houston of Nanking, China, dated July 12. The letter contanis a copy of the proclamation of Li ilung Chang, the viceroy, which not only requires the Chinese to refrain from molesting missionaries, but speaks in terms of praise of the work done by them. Mr. Speer says that the proclamation illustrates the folly of forming judgment of the whole of China from conditions existing in one section, and it is more significant because Nanking has always been a mere or less turbulent center. WHO WANTS IT? to Settlo the City, for the Republican Convention. WASHINGTON, Sept, 7.—It is understood that Chairman Carter of the national committee, will, within a few days, issue a call for a meeting of the committee in this city in October. The exact date of the meeting is not yet known, but when it is finally announced delegations from all of the score of cities which are in the race for the convention will be headed this way. The general impression here seems to be that, although Chicago will not ask for the convention, it is more than likely to be held there. HAVE A GRIEVANCE. Thursday, Sept. 5. Sveii Loven, the distinguished Swedish naturalist is dead, at the age of 87 years. Fort Worth (Tex.) Methodists have begun to denounce the Corbett-Fitis- Simmons prize fight.

S.—Atroeities fef Spaniards, as revolting asthosecommit* ted by the Japanese at Port Arthur,hftte jttst been reported to the revolutionary^ party in Ifew York. Enrique Trujilio, editor of El Poryeiiir, has received a letter from Jttau Maspohs tfr'ah'coj chief of Staff under General Maxliao Gomez, the commahder-imchief of the insufgent fcfniy. It is dated Aiig. 8, and seiids details of the capture and recapture of the citjr of Saire aiid the inassacfe of 87 inoffensive Cubans—mostly wonieii and children—by the Spaniards tiiider Commander Garrido. On Tuesday mdfhingj: according to Colonel Franco's lettered, company of insurgents under Jose Rabi surprised ,the Spanish garrison in the fortress commanding the city of Baife, killed more than 70 men aiid took 66 prisoners. They captured a large quantity of arms* and. persuaded the prisoners to enlist in ;he insurgent ranks. Jii-utality of Sliiiuiitfds. An hour later three companies of Spanish troops uildei' Commander Garrido, came up and after a short but sharp resistance the Cubans fled, leav- iig the fortress again in the hands of he invaders. Soon after the fort had been regar- risoned with Spaniards one of the companies broke loose and began to pillage :he city. Commander Garrido himself, Colonel Franco states, led the uniformed rioters. The Spaniards Were wild for the spilling of blood. Every human ireature who came in their path was ruthlessly slain. Within five minutes the streets of Baire were deserted by the panic-stricken natives, but the Spaniards followed .them into their houses and killed them in their own rooms. "Age, sex and condition were wholly disregarded by these livened butchers," says Colonel Franco. "Old and young women, children, even infants, were slaughtered. Shocking Indignities were ottered to the unfortuate victims before and after death. The Spanish soldiers stamped on the bodies of those whom they had slain, and ground their heels into the faces of many who were still olive. "Seuorita Delores Madeira, a beautiful girl of 18, bethrothed to one of 'Captain Rabi's lieutenants, was seized on the street, cruelly beaten, repeatedly stabbed with bayonets and brutally insulted. "One of Garrido's captains commanded the girl to renounce her Cuban lover and swear loyalty to the Spanish government. She scornfully refused, whereupon the maddened soldiers seized her, bound her hand and foot, threw a noose around her neck and hanged her to a tree. While she was still alive, but no longer conscious, her body was riddled with bullets." O, A. ft. Kncftnlptnt Ke the Iftrgest Ever Held. IxrtjfeVJLtB, Sept. 10.— Visitors pouted into the fall!

PAUL, Sept, 7.—A considerable increase in freight rates to Montana and Western territory has been ordered to go into effect. This grows out of the conference held in this city a few weeks ago. It was announced that important changes will be made in the freight tariffs of the Northern Pacific, Great Northern and Union Pacific reaching Montana territory and west, to take effect Sept. 2, Puring the past two years the tariffs to Montana and territory west thereof have been on a very low basjs, the rates to this territory being sonaeSvliat affected by the very low'rates made to Pacific coast terminals, by reason of the strong competition of the water lines between the Atlantic seaboard and the Pacific coast. The new rates will restore the conditions to about the normal basis in effect before the reductions made about the time the Great Northern line was completed to the coast in 1893. yori»Wal>l«) Chinese Jtebt-llion.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 7.—It is ofR.- ially announced here that Rusteni Pasha, Turkish ambassador to England, aas telegraphed to the foreign minister hat .he has had an interview relative o the Armenian question with Lord Salisbury, whom he had assured that he sublime porte is not opposed to the •ef orms proposed by the powers signa- ;ory to the treaty of Berlin, but that Cm-key could not permit control of Armenia by an international commission. Lord Salisbury replied that under the circximstaiices, it would be useless to outinue the interview. If, he said, the porte persists in its refusal, the powers will undertake the suggested reforms and rest satisfied. If, however, the porte continues to resist, Mr. Salisbury added, it would be a signal for the dismemberment of Turkey. The dispatch has caused the greatest uneasiness here. FIFTEEN HUNDRED DEATHS DAILY. Alarming Increase of Cholera in the City of Peking. VICTORIA, B. C., Sept, 6.—The steamship Empress of China has arrived from the Orient with advices to Aug. 23, as follows: Cholera increases in Peking and the deaths exceed 1,500 daily.

They carried club topsails. Valkyrie had a baby jib topsail and Defender a No. 2. For a short time Valkyrie out- pointed and outfooted Defender, and things looked blue for the 30,000 Americans on the largest fleet of excursion boats and steam and sailing yachts ever seen at an ocean race and probably any other kind. " In the first three tacks Valkyrie continued her good work. Defender was then sailed with rap full and at once out-footed Valkyrie, though apparently going to leeward.- About 3 p. m. the breeze freshened to its greatest power of the day—eight miles—and Defender immediately passed her competitor and was never afterwards approached. Defender was 3, niins. 32 sees, ahead at the outer mark. >Theuce home, the wind having shifted to about southeast,-, it was a broad reach. Both yachts set balloon jib top ' sails. On the; reach the wind dropped to five miles before the finish. Defender gained 4 mins. _48 sees, coming home. The excursion boats bothered both yachts somewhat. Cholera ReportH Exaggerated. TACOMA, Wash., Sept, 8.,— The steamship Lacoma has arrived from the Orient bringing 3,500 tons of cargo, including 3,000 tons of tea and 1,000 bales of silk.
