Cavlte Vlego Is reported to have been

The Fourteenth Infantry and one battery

Tons of concealed salt petre and thous-
ands of pounds of antiquated artillery am-
munition and brown powder were discov-
ered in the powder house. Large quanti-
ties had been thrown in the river.
The panic stricken insurgents have giv-
en up several of their best defensive po-

He claims to have been a witness of the
assnsslnation of General Luna. Acor-l'.rg
to his story, the relations between the
Filipino leaders had been strained to tho
breaking point because of Luna's at-
temps to assume control of affairs, and
llnal rupture was forced by Aguln-
aldo issuing secret orders to the provin
clal governments. Luna thereupon notl
tifil Agulnaldo, demanding copies of the
documents, un<l Agulnaldo replied curtly
that Luna was n general of • e army and
that the civil government did not concern
him. Luna, upon opening the reply at his
headquarters in the presence of his offl
lira, exclaimed hotly; "He will be dead
Luna appeared the next oay and saw
Agulnaldo at the window.
A member of the guard said; "Aguln-
aldo has gone to Inspect the troops."
Luna then exclaimed; You are a liar"
Irew his revolver, struck the guard and
tried to force an entrance Into the house.
Hefore he could use his revoJ er one of

In all he had 20 wounds, i.unas aide de

The Spaniards story has not entirely
dispelled the doubts of Lunas death, and

Bland, congressman from th« eighth M s-
souri district, passed peacefully away at
exactly half past four o'clock this morn-
ing. Tuesday night about 11 o'clock t s
fell Into a sleep from which he never
awoke. The physicians used every tiiuna
in their power to arouae him but he nev-
er regained consciousness in the slightest
degree. About i o'clock tn.s morning It
could be seen lost be was sinking rapidly
and at half past 4 o'clock he ceased t
breathe. Toward the end the action of ten
heart increased perceptibly and hopes
were express* d that he was awaken ng.
but it was a fruitless hope. His sons,
Theodoric, Ew.ng, George and John, his
daughters, Fsnnls snd Vlrglnls, and Mrs.
Bland were at his bedside when the end
came. His brother Judge C. C. Bland of
St. Louis. Mrs. rt. T. Thomas, h s broth-
er-in-law, Hen. E. V. Mitchell and E. V.
Mitchell. Jr., and his private secretary,
Drad Bell, w<Te also with him The fun-
eral will be held Saturday afternoon al
4 o'clock at the opera house and th^ body
will be burled In the Catholic cemetet y.
The funeral will be in charge of the ser«
geant-at-arms of the houses of represen
tatlves and will be conducted by Masonic
lodges. Private secretary Bel. has notified
the clerk of the house of Mr. Bland's
death requesting him to appoint a com
in It tee of members to attend the funeral
Prominent friends of Mr. Bland through-
out the country have been notified of the
funeral arrangements. - ir. Bland was a
member of no church and the ministers
of all denominations will participate In
the services. It is planned to have Col.
William J. Bryan deliver the funeral or-
ation. The body will lie In state at the
opera house for twenty-four hours.
Mr. Blands' illness began Immediately
after his return from Washington, early
In March. It started with an attack of
grip followed with a relapse. Chronic
catarrh of the stomach complicated the
disease. Brain trouble came next, and he
died of cerebral congestion. For several
days before his death he was partially
paralyzed. His power of speech was gone
and he was unable to communicate with
Mr. Bland returned home when congress
adjourned In March and he soon suffer-
ed a relapse from an attack of the grip.
For more than two months he has been
confined to his home and his health was
gradually declining. He thought he would
not survive the attack from the first and
showed his thorough knowledge of his
condition. On the 3rd of this month, Mr
Bland suddenly grew worse and his sons
who were In school were summoned
home, and for the first time the public
was Informed of his critical condition.
From time to time since then the pat-
lent showed signs of Improvement, but
the physicians in charge would offer very
little hope to his family and friends. He
continued to lose his vigor and grew
weaker. Last Monday and Sunday h* pre-
sented an Improved condition and his fam-
ily took new hope, and late Monday after
noon, there were many expressions that
Bland was getting better. About 10 o'clock
Tuesday night however, he fell asleep and
continued In that condition until death re-
lieved him today.
A dispatch was received tonight from
Col. W. J. Bryan at Chicago stating that
he would attend the funeral, Mrs. Bland
has received several dozen of messages
of condolence from admirers of her hus-
band from all over the country. The strain
on Mrs. Bland's nervous system has been
very great and her friends are alarmed at
Its effect. Mr, Bland leaves no life Insur-
ance and dies a comparatively poor man.
The funeral services will be conducted
by the Masonic Fraternity. Col. W. J.
Bryan and all of the visiting congress-
men are expected to pronounce brief eulo-
gies on the character and public services
of the deceased.

Denver, June 16.—The outlook la favor-

been shut down since Wednesday, bringing
nforced idleness to thousands of minsrs

calcable damage to all the injustrles of

will probably lead to a oonferencs between
Mr. James B. Grant, uftairman of the op-
erating committee of the American Smelt-
ing and Refining company, and a commit-
tee appointed by the smelter mens union.
The employes, It is believed, will insist

to this, lie has also expressed willing-
ness to pay the wagos that are being paid

However, information received from of-
ficial headquarters has shown that the
chief articles of export from Barbadoes to

been getting their manufactured good
almost exclusively from England.
