Seattle, July 10 - Russians being taken from Shanghai to Odessa on the Seattle steamship Garonne, became so riotous between the Chinese port and Singapore that Capt. Robert Lawe, master of the ship, was forced to place the ringleaders in irons. Upon arriving at Singapore, Capt. Lawe appealed to the Russian consul to have the more turbulent of his passengers taken from the ship. His request was refused and he promptly purchased enough rifles and ammunition to arm his crew. Then he clapped more of the disturbers in irons and subduing the rest with a show of force continued on his voyage.

Timely Arrival of Help Saves Mr. White's Machine Shop - Fire Apparatus Work Well.
Yesterday afternoon about three o'clock, for the first time in a long while the fire bell was sounded in Marysville. The fire bell together with the Ebey mill whistle quickly brought a large crowd together to fight the fire which was located in the upper story of the Marysville Machine shop. the prompt response of the fire apparatus available along with the stream of water thrown on the building from the mill near by soon checked the fire, and what might have become a serious conflagration, considering the time of the year and the location of the building, was made a comparatively light loss. The shop is running as usual.
The evident cause of the fire was a spark from the Dexter shingle mill. There is a report that the spark catchers on the mill are not very effective in stopping the sparks. The pumping apparatus belonging to the fire department worked splendidly on the fire.
