Topeka, Kan., Feb. 19. Mrs. Nation
to now in the couuty jail an a renult of
her triitl on a peare warrant before
Judge Hazen yesterday. The warrant
was aworn to by the Moeser Cold Stor
age company, whose plant Mrs. Nation
entered Sunday morning,
Mm. Nation acted as her own attor
ney in the trial. Judge Hazen placed
her under $2,000 bond to keep the
peace and ordered her to appear before
him at the next term of court. Mrs.
Nation refused to give the bond and
aid she would go to Jail. She is now
detained In the hospital room of the
county Jail, where she will probably re
main for some time.
In the city court arguments were
given in the case brought against Mrs.
Nation by the proprietors of the
wrecked "Senate" saloon. Judge Me
Cabe said he would take the matter un
der advisement until Thursday morn
ing. It Is not likely that Mrs. Nation will
be Me to give bond, because she de
clares that she will resume her smash
ing crusade against the "joints" imme
diately upon her release. Her friends
have been advised that Judge Hazen
Will make her release conditional upon
the promise that she be sent to her
home at Medicine Lodge.
Judge Hazen last night placed Cal
McDonald. Mrs. Rose Crist and Miss
Madeline Southard under peare bonds.
McDonald's bond Is $1,000; the others
are $r.no each. The judge delivered a
scathing address to the three Nation
lieutenants. He expressed the opinion
hut Mrs. Nation Is insane, and said
lljose persona who encourage her meth
ods of reform ought to be ashamed of
During the hearing before Judge
Hazen Mrs. Nation opened fire with all
manner of questions. Objections were
Offered by the county authorities, most
of which were sustained. Other wit
nesses followed In B like manner, and
she kept up a hot fusillade of ques
tions, wanting to know "how many
latcheta were used in breaking In;
what do you keep in your place: Is It
not a fact that you keep all kinds of
hell broth." etc. Mrs. Nation could not
understand the sustaining of the many
objections, and said she did not think
the judge was fair with her.
Mrs. Nation received a telegram yes
terday afternoon from a theatrical
manager offering her $B06 a week to
take a part In a temperance play. She
answered: "Not yet while 1 got some

Tnrlae, T.uzon. Feb, 19. The United
States Philippine Commission decided
yesterday after a conference that it
would not be wise to postpone the or
ganization of provincial government
In the province of Tarlac. As the first
step in the work of organization the
commission determined to appoint an
American as governor of the province,
the selection falling upon Capt. Wallis
O. Clark, of Mie Twelfth Cnlted States
Infantry. There are two native fac
tions seeking to control the affairs of
Tarlac. the strongest being led by
Macabulns, whose loyalty is questioned
by all the military officers. The In
difference of the people is obvious.

Pnre! n Question of i.n.v nul Poet.
Washington, Feb, 19. In speaking
yesterdny of his recent order imposing
a sot utervulling duty on Russian
sugars, Secretary (Jage said: "It is
uot a question of what the manufac
ture i - desire or think ought to be. It
is no; a question of what the sugar re
flm rs or our beet sugar raisers desire
or think ought to be, It is a question
purely of law and of fact. The secre
tary of tin treasury is sworn to enforce
the law, not to make law. The late
decision as to the liability of Russian
sugar to pay a countervailing duty is
based on the department's apprehen
sion of the law and of the facts."

of The Dally Mail, who is with the

says: "(Jen. De Wet has failed to reach

In turn from Btrydenburg and Hope

surrender. Eventually the malcon
tents decided to fight Independently."

Seattle, Wash., Feb. 16. A special to
the Post-Intelllgencer from Victoria

took place yesterday at the Union
mines, owned by the Welling Colliery
company, of which James Dunsmulr, !
the premier of the province, la the i
As near as can be gathered an ex
plosion took place at about 11 o'clock
yesterday forenoon in No. 6 shaft. This
particular shaft Is situated in the vil
lage of Cumberland. There were SI
men in it when the explosion took
place, and not one of them escaped.
The explosion Ignited the mine, wreck
ing the shaft from midway down to tha
bottom and filling It with a solid mass
of rocks, earth and timbers. The first
explosion was followed by several
more, while a dense volume of smoke
pouring from the vent holes Indicated
that fire as well as gas was doing de
structive work below.
As soon as possible after the acci
dent the men of the morning shift ia
No. 5 shaft organized a rescue party.
No. 5 is situated about a mile from
No. 6, but the workings are connected
by a tunnel and through this channel
an attempt was made to help the un
fortunate fellows In the wrecked shaft.
They had not cut their way many yards
through the debris when they encoun
tered fire, which rendered the place
untenable and obliged the party to de
sist. The message name back by telephone
to the surface conveying the heart
breaking news to the relatives of the
imprisoned men, whose urging was not
necessary to Induce the relief party to
return to their apparently hopeless
task. Overcome at last by gas and
smok" they reluctantly withdrew from
No. a and commenced work on a long
cut from No. 4, the only other means
of reaching the men. Work on this
was prosecuted with the greatest vigor
until abatement of the lire In No. 5:
enabled them to once more return
Th-y worked but a short time, how
ever, when another lire broke out and
drove them back. Then hope was aban
doned, and the work of flooding the
mine was at once begun. It will be
several days before the bodies can be re
covered, because after the fire has been
put out it will be necessary to pump
the water out of the mines before a
rescuing party can hepe to get at tne
