STATE TROOPS SENT FOR  City Council Passes Resolutions Asking the Governor for the Militia.  Saloons Are Closed and the Sale of Arms and Ammunition Prohibited.  Shenandoah, Pa., Sept.22.—A slier* Iff’s posse fired on a crowd of riotous men near hero, killing two persons aud wounding seven others.  Sheriff Toole aud Deputies O’Donnell and Bren ne man wore called to Shenandoah to suppress the mobs that threatened the mine workers and colliery property. At quitting time tho throe sheriffs went to the Indian Ridge colliery of tho Reading company to escort the workingmen to their homes. The colliery is located a short distance east of Shenandoah.  The workmen left for home nhortly after 4 o’clock. They walked up the middle of East Center street and reached tho Lehigh railroad station. Here had gathered a largo crowd of Pol* >. Slavs and Hungarians, men, women and children, who lined both sides of the street. A shot rang out from a saloon. This was followed by a shower of stones. Many of the I crowd had  I Irked Up Mink* and -Stone*  and were acting in a threatening manner. Seeing this the sheriff, who had previously cautioned his men to keep cool and not to use their firearms, commanded them to fire. The order was obeyed with terrible results. The crowd pursued the sheriff and his ]Mh»e to the Ferguson House. 1 , where they took refuge.  Sheriff Toole shortly after telephoned to Harrisburg and asked that a detachment of troops be sent here. It was learned that Adjutant General Stewart was in Philadelphia and a telegram was sent to him there.  The killed were Mike Yuckavage, who was shot in the rye, and a little girl, name unknown, shot in the buck of the neck.  During the riot windows were broken, buildings wrecked and a number of persons were injured. The foreigners had a meeting aud  More Trouble la Feared  unless the militia arrives soon. The sheriff has asked the Philadelphia and Reading company to abandon the idea of working the collieries here and the company consented to do so.  Up to a late bourkha Hungarian that was kill JU was permitted to lie in the gutter where he dropped. Foreigners of this class say a dead man is of House aud they refuse to care for the remains.  Shenandoah council held a meeting and passed resolutions calling upon the governor to send militia. They also decided to enforce martial law. * Special officers were sent out to order saloonkeepers to close their places and to keep them closed until peace was restored. It was also decided to prohibit the sale of firearms, ammunition, etc.  TROOPS ORDERED OUT.  Three Regiments of Infantry, a Battery and a Troop of Cavalry on the Way.  Harrisburg, Pa., Sept. 22.—Three regiments of infantry, a battery and a troop of cavalry was ordered out at midnight by Governor Stone to assist Sheriff Toole in maintaing order in the Schuylkill mine region. This action was taken after a conference between the governor, Adjutaut General Stewart and General Gobin on the earnest solicitation of tho sheriff, borough council of Shenandoah and many prominent residents of that locality. General Gobin has been jdaced iu command of the provisional brigade and has started from here with his staff on a special train for Shenandoah.  MITCHELL’S ESTIMATE.  Hay* eighty IVr Out of tin* Mini* Worker* Arr Out.  Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 22.—President Mitchell af noon gave ont tho following statement:  “Reports received at this office show that Hi) per cent of the mine workers of this Lehigh region are on strike. Large numbers are joining the ranks of tho strikers daily. All that go on strike have remained out aud from their own expressions they are determined to win. Many of tho coal companies havo run their breakers, trying to create the impression that the men were at work,  JOINED  Nearly Ten  THE STRIKERS.  JOHN MITCHELL.  (President United Mine Worker* of America. ]  but they were running empty cars instead of full ones.  “Reports from every mining town are highly satisfactory, the men are peaceable and law abiding.  “The latest rejiort from the lower anthracite region show's that the mines at Mahoney City and Shenandoah, and in tho vicinity of these two places arc completely tied up. We expect to verify the prediction that every anthracite miner would cease work.’’  FOUR STRUNG UP.  Negroes Accused of Crime Lynched at Ponchatoula, La.  New Orleans, Sept. 22.—Four negroes were hanged in “Bloody” Tangi-poah parish during the night after the jail in the village of Pontchatoula had beau broken open and the prisoners, accused of robbing the family of Henry Holfelter, had been taken from their cells. Mrs. Louise Holfelter, who resisted* the colored men, was choked and beaten so unmercifully that sho lost her mind. Wholesale lynchings aro feared. The men lynched were: Isaiah Rollins, aged 18; Nathaniel Bowman, Charles Elliott, 20; George Bick-bam, 20.  There were 14 colored suspects in the Pontchatoula jail accused of various robberies. A committee of white citizens oalled on Sheriff Mix and demanded the keys to the jail. The sheriff refused to produce them. Axes were brought and tho Jan Was Immediately Broken Open. Four of the suspects wero hanged to a tree about two blocks away after being made to confess having participated in the burglary of Holfelter’s house.  Not until 7 o’clock in the morning were the bodies cut down. Meantime, tho coroner’s jury returned a verdict of death “by uuknown hands.”  Citizens scoured the parish throughout the uight arresting all tho negroes they could get their hands on. These were crowded into the little jail at Pontchatoula and a wholesale lynching is feared.  Mayor Jackson aud the sheriff are using every menus to restore order, but are making slow progress. The better element among tho colored population is fleeing to tho churches where the time is being spent in prayer.  ATTACKS THE GRAND ARMY  0 ITS  I I I A  Adminlsiration Discloses All of Its Purposes Regarding the Chinese.  Full and Complete Answers Havo Been Addressed to the Powers.  HAS FAILED OF APPROVAL  Thousand Mine Workers at Pottsville Go Out.  Philadelphia, Sejit. 22.—General Superintendent Luther of Pottsville has telegraphed President Harris of the Philadelphia and Reading Coal aud Iron company that IO of the 34 working collieries of the company wore affected by the strike during the morning. From 9,000 to 10,000 men have joined the strikers. This action on the part of the mine workers was tho result of a meeting held at Shenandoah. Twenty-four collieries of tho Reading company are still working.  District Tied up Tltlit.  Scranton, Pa., Sept. 22.—President; Nicholls of District No. I has informed strike headquarters here that tho West* End Coal company’s mine at Mocanaqua, which has resisted the efforts of ^the strikers to close it, was tied up at noon, making complete the suspension in the Wyoming aud LackaWauna val* 1 leys.  Russia Trying to Negotiate a Loan.  London, Sept. 22.—Russia, according to the Copenhagen correspondent of The Daily Telegraph, is tryiug to raise a loan in Now York, but it is thought^ iu the Danish capital that aho has no chance to succeed.  Atlanta Confederates Tass Very Warm Resolutions,  Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 22.—The Atlanta camp of    Confederate Veterans has  adopted resolutions hotly condemning the language of* the Grand Army of the Republic in its Chicago utterances against historical text hooks read in Southern schools.  The resolutions charges that the Grand Army is attempting to revive sectional    strife. Aftor referring to  cruelties    perpetrated by Sherman’s  army in justification of rejxirts to this effect in Southern histories, the resolutions recite alleged cruelties practiced on Jefferson Davis by General Miles.  The resolutions deny that the Southern school histories aro working harm on the minds of Southern students, aud declare that the Grand Army is unworthy of serious consideration.  SIX ARE MISSING.  Barge Martin Sunk in a Collision at the Entrance of St. Clair River.  Port HUTTON, Mich., Sept. 22.—Tho barge Martin, in tow of the steamer Maurice P. Grover, was sunk in the rapids at the entrance to the St. Clair river, by the straightback steamer Yurnu, aud Captain James Lawless of Lorain, William Ross, mate, of Toledo. Mrs. Bacon, cook, of Toledo, and three sailors, whoso names aro unknown, are missing. Gabriel Peterson of Cleveland and George Kyle of Toledo, members of the crew, were saved. Navigation through thcvcnnal is completely blocked. Tugs are out in Lake Huron notifying down-bound boats to anchor.  Rejects German Proposal to Punish Chinamen Who Aro Responsible.  Believed Bulk of tho American Troops Will Be Returned to Manila.  Washington, Sept. 22.—Tho United States government has made full and complete answers to the various important inquiries that have been addressed to it by tho power** folativ*? to tho Chinese trouble. Moreover, nit has gone farther and has made a disclosure of all of its purposes, and, as a member of the administration puts it, it has thrown its hand open on the table.  At 3:30 o’clock Minister Wa called by appointment upon Acting Secretary Hill aud w as handed a memorandum embodying the response of tho United States government to the request of Prince Ching thut Mr. Couger or some other person be immediately empowered to begin negotiations with tho Chinese authorities for a flual settlement.’ The minster came away with a dissatisfied expression upon his face. Next came M. Thiebuut, the French charge. A few minutes’ conversation sufficed to impart to him orally an answer to his one verbal inquiry.  Then Baron Sternberg, tho German charge, who had been notified of the readiness of the state department to make answer to the Germau note, called and was given that answer. He hastened away to  Cable to His Government.  The department then sent the answer to the Russian inquiry forw arded by messenger aud wired cablegrams containing the substance of the answers to its diplomatic representative Abroad. Thus closed one of the most interesting and important phases of the Chinese entanglement. The state department absolutely refused to make any statement as to the nature of the answers, taking the ground that to do so would be a violation of diplomatic propriety. However, it is known that tho German proposal that negotiations with Cninn be deferred until the Chinese rasponsi-ble for the Peking outrages have been surrendered to the adios, has failed of approval by our government. The declination has beeu conveyed iu a manner that cannot give offense, but it is believed that the United States government cannot recognize the principle that a country may be called ujkiu to surrender its own citizens to a foreign power or powers for punishment. The government does not relinquish the idea of the  Ultimate I’nnlshment of the intender*  when they are properly identified, but it does not believe that the jinrsuit of this object should put a stop to ull negotiations.  The idea of a commission to adjust tho difficulties with China is again brought forward and it is suggested that such a commission on tho part of the United States may either form part of the joint international commission which it is hoped will be appointed for this purpose, or, in the event of the failure of the effort to secure joint action, then the members can go on and deal directly with China for a settle rnont. The names of Minister Conger, General James H. Wilson and Mr. Rockhill are mentioned in this connection. It is believed that the outcome, from a military point, of the day’s action will be the withdrawal of all but one regiment of the American troops from China to Manila, where thoy eau be held ready to return in an emergency. General Caaffee probably will remain in China in command of the force there, which will be regarded simply as a legation guard.

Washington, Sept. 22.—The following dispatch has been received al the war department from General Chaffee: “Peking, Sept. 10.—Rockhill*WiltOB expedition returned; object successfully accomplished; no casualties our troop* Forsythe’s squadron scouted northeast 40 miles to relievo native Christiana; returned bring in 14. Surrounding country daily growing less hostile and more peaceful, so far as my expedition can determine questions.”  Tile date of this cablegram, Peking, Sept. 19, shows that close communication has been established with the Chinese capital.  The successfnl expedition thai General Chaffee refers to probably to the one lie mentioned in his dispatch ai Sept. IO, in which he said General Wilson was goiug to the westward of Peking to clear out the Boxers and open up the coal fields. His reference to Rockhill is not clear to officials here.  OPEN FIRE ON TROOPS.  Reason for th* Bom bard meat of lh* Pal Tang Forts.

Boston, Sept. 22. — The National jiarty, composed of men who tool that they canuot conveniently vote for either McKinley or Bryan, at a conference held ut Young’s hotel daring the afternoon, abandoned the idea of keeping a third ticket in the field, and Mr. Archibald M. Howe, who was nominated for v tee president in New York on tho 6th inst. is expected to follow Senator Caffeiy of Louisiana, tho presidential nominee, iu formally withdrawing his candidacy. Those who have had the movement at heart, however will endeavor to save it from complete collapse by nominating one presidential elector in Massaehusettes aud in other states, where the election laws will permit this to bo done.
