UTAH STATE NEWS Tbe salaries of all the county officers of Uintah county hare been raised. The location of the famous Lost Cabin gold mine, for which miners and prospectors have searched for many years, has been found. This is tbe belief of a party of Bffalo, Wyoming, miners that have been prospecting on the south branch of Otter creek, sixty miles southwest of Buffalo, for five or six years, and who last week discovered rich veins of gold ore in that vicinity; also what they believe to be the workings of the now famous Lost Cabin mine itself. Albert E. Sutton and Barnes C. Burris have been at work in the district for a long time, as have many other miners who believed the story of the lost mine and who were confident of some day discovering the workings from which fortunes were said to have been secured in early days. Each year the men secured enough float to pay for their time and labor, but not until a few weeks ago did they find anything that looked like a rich strike. The discovery is a drift in the tide of a nearby perpendicnlar cliff, about fifty feet high. Tbe workings are in rich that a carbonates, which are-sdollar's worth of . gold can be picked out of a square inch of the wall with a pocket knife. On one of tbe walls is the following inscription: Gorham and Wilhelm Arbacb, MORO SITUATION CRITICAL. American Force Halt Mclcc Decisive Mov Against Hostile Natives. Moro The situation in Mindanao is considered critical, and it is believed that American troops will soon move agaim.t Bacalod, where tbe recent murder of two man of the twenty-sevent- h infantry was plotted. A small party of Moros surprised an at camp outpost of the Twenty-sevent- h Nickars, Mindanao, August 13th, killing two and wounding one American. They were from Bacalod, which baa a strong fort and other defenses. Bitter opposition to the Americans exist at Bacalod and Captain Pershing of the Fifteenth cayalry, commanding the American forces at Lano, recommended the reduction of the fort. General Chaffee, who left Manila on a final tour of inspection, reached ZamboaDga, island of Mindanao, last Friday. Ins conference with the local commander, General Chaffee argued that unless ths American forces moved decisively against the hostiles they would lose the support of the frendly Moros. The native crew of the inter-insulsteamer Mis Ilermanos mutinied at Port Virac, island of Cataduanes, last Thursday. They murdered the chief engineer of tbe vessel and wounded the captain, the mate, the second officer and one of the passengers, all of whom are Spaniards. .Members of tbe native constabulary went to tbe rescue of the ship's officers. They fired into the crew and killed three ol of the crew surthem. Twenty-fiv- e rendered and five jumped overboard and are believed to have been drowned.

Stone was commissioned by Captain Baldwin to make a tour of the island with the purpose, in part, of ascertaining the truth of the reports that a race of people distinct from the typical Moros inhabited tbe interior portions of Mindanao, Stone says his investigation consumed considerable time. He acquired the dialects of several tribes and was afforded unusual opportunities for investigation. Stone declares that the statement made as to tbe existence of native whito men on the island is not founded on facts. He met many persons whose facial characteristics denoted Caucasian ancestry, particularly in the matter of complexion, when contrasted with the Moro skin, but his inquiries led to the development that these lighter hued people were descended from Castilians who had long ago settled on Mindanao and had married native women. No colonies of these people were found at any point and Stone noted them at scattered places. All of them had forgotten the faith of their forbears and were devout followers of Mohammed. by His Wife.
