Corporation Formed to Colonize
Brazil—Two Men Burned
(mCIAL DISF..TCHE- TO THE KECOBD-mnoV.)
TO COLONIZE BRAZIL.
A Corporation Formed to Encourage
Washington, December 25th.—The Bu
rean of American Republic has received
information of the organization of a cor
poration in Brazil under the name of tbe
"Companhia nova era Rural do Brazil."
with a capital of $25,000,000, a large part of
which has been furnished by bankers and
merchants of Europe. The object is to es
tablish twenty agricultural settlements
upon public lands in Brazil, which are
given free of cost by the Government to aid
the enterprise; to construct lines of railway
for placing these settlements in communi
cation with each other and their markets;
to carry out engineering works, mining op
erations and the manufacture of sugar,
bricks, tiles, lime and other articles for ex
port, as well as for local consumption.
The company proposes to select thou-
Eands of families in Europe, consisting of
skilled agriculturists and mechanics, and
to transport them to Brazil, where houses
will be prepared for their occupancy, and
tools and implements furnished for their
use. These colonists will be divided into
villages and scattered over the estate as a
nucleus for immigrants to be brought there
■The Federal and several State Govern
ments of Brazil have offered guaranty of
5 per cent, interest on one-third of the
capital invested in the enterprise.
An expedition was some time ago sent
by an agent of the Government up the
Parana river to explore what is known
as the 'Gran Chace," a tract of country
in the northern part of the Argentine Re
public, as unknown as the interior of
Africa. The expedition has returned, hav
ing traveled some 4,000 miles, and reports
that the "Gran Chace," which was sup
posed to be a sort of swamp, is, on the
contrary, a land of much promise, the cli
mate being mild and healthy, and the soil
rich and dry. Maize, corn and sugar-cane
thera attain enormous size, and there is
much valuable timber.
Heavy Snow-storm Throughout the Ohio
Washikgtok, December 25tb.—A special
bulletin issued by the Signal Office during
the present storm, which extends from In
diana to Virginia, promises the greatest
amount of snow in any single storm in
several years. Warnings were sent to the
railroads in Pennsylvania and New York
today, and the storm will reach New
Kngland on Friday. From three to seven
iaches of snow fell to-day in the Ohio
■Washington, December 25th.—It is snow
ing hard this evening, with every indica
tion of a protracted storm. A dispatch |
from Harrisburg, Va , says that a severe
sBOw-stoim set in this morninc and it is
still snowing. The country roaJs are
blocked from the storm of the 17th and
18th, and travel is almost entirely sus
pended. The same condition of affairs is
reported from Staunton.
Pittsbcbu, December 25.h.—The very
heavy snow-storm, which began early this
evening, still continues at midnight.' Sev
eral street car lines are blocked and travel

TBE MICKEL TRAGEDY.
Mew Developments in Relation to the
81. Paul. December 25th.— Developments
in the Mickel tragedy to day show a some
what different story from that told last
night. Silas Mickel (colored) had been
separated from his wife several months.
Reosntly he repeatedly tried to effect a re
conciliation, but without avail. Last night,
after another futile attempt, be attacked his
wife with a knife. His stepdaughter,
JKanns McLeod, canie to her mother's de
fense, when the infuriated man attacked
both women with a revolver and kuife.
Mrs. Mickel was shot in the abdomen and
had her throat cut, while her daughter was
stabbed five time in the body. The daugh
ter died in a short time, but the mother is
still alive. Mickel blew his brains out.
Most of the Hostiles Bave Surrendered
Pibebe (9. D.), December 2olh.—Captain
Norville, Special Agent, has just returned
from Fort Bennett, and reports the In
dian war there as being over. It seems
that the Indians have been afraid they
would be massacred, or they would have
oome in before. After the Indians arrived
at Fort Bennett councils were held to see
whether they would give up their arms or
not. Agent Palmer said: "No arms, no
rations or blankets." This soon brought
them to time, and all the arms are now
stacked up at the agency.

EVERYTHING QUIET OS THE CANADIAN EE
Ottawa, December 25th.—According to
reports received at the Mounted Police De
partment, it appears that the Comntissioner
three weeks ago issued orders to the bor
der patrols to disarm all United States In
dians coming into Canadian territory, and
to collect duty on their ponies, or else turn
the Indians back. These instructions were
carried out with the res'ilt that everything
Is quiet on all the Canadian reserves.

in the Cave Hills by 500 Indians.
Two hours' rest was taken at New

continued the forced march southwest in
the direction of the Cave Hills, fifty miles

Third Party .Movement.
Topeka, December 25th.—Mr. McGrath,
President of the Kansas Farmers' Alliance,
in an interview today said that at a meet
ing of the Legislative Committee of the
National Alliance in Washington, some
time in February, the third party move
ment will be one of the principal things to
be acted on.
"This movement," said McGrath, "will
eventually embrace all the labor organiza
tions in the United States. In fact, about
all of them are committed to it except the
Grange, and most of the Grangers are
members of the Farmers' Alliance.''
Dover (N. H.), December 25th.—Argu
ments in the noted Sawtelle murder trial
have closed and the Judge charged the
jury this afternoon. At 7:30 this evening
they returned to the Court and announced
that they had reached a verdict. The jnry
found the prisoner, Isaac B. Bawtelle,
Siilty of murder in the first degree. Judge
oe then sentenced him to be hanged on
the first Tuesday in January, 1892. and to
be confined in the meantime in the State
prison at Concord. Sawtelle betrayed no
Fire In a Hospital.
Chicago, December 25th.—The hundreds
of patients and attendants in the Cook
County Hospital were given a decided
scare to-day by a fire that started in the
drying room and threatened the entire in

fire apparatus at the hospital was made a
few days ago and the inmates were keenly
alive to their peril. Prompt action by

Kansas City (Mo ), December 25th.—
William Rockwell, a laborer, last night
called on his former mistress, Mrs. Rock
well, and attempted to persuade her to re

fainted. Thinking* he k«d killed her,
Rockwell turned the weapon on her little
daughter and inflicted a serious flesh
wound. He then tied.
Boomers on the Cherokee Strip,
Arkansas City (Kans.), December 25th.
—A courier arrived here this evening
from the boomers' camp near the State
line. He says 2,000 men, with teams and
farm implements and camp equipage,
will invade the Cherokee strip to-morrow
evening. This action is probably due to
the fact that the last detachment of
United States troops has been withdrawn.
Wonld-b* Murderer Arrested,
Wheeling (W. Va.), December 25th.—
Mose Huwe went into the residence of G.
H. Norris, at Parkersburg, to-night, and,

fatal accident occurred this afternoon on

Prescott (Arii), December 25;h.—John
M. Stoop, who shot and killed Graut Laban
at the Pack mine on Sunday nignt, was ar

placed in jail here yesterday. He admitted
the killing, and his preliminary examina

morning about nine o'clock, while one of
the prisoners in the jail was engaged in
Bhaving, he laid tbe razjr down to wash
his face, when Stoop suddenly picked it
up and went to his cell and slashed him
self across the throat from ear to ear before
the horrified prisoners could prevent it.
As soon as he committed the deed he
walked out into the corrider and attempted
to speak to the prisoners who had followed
him, but immediately sank to the floor and
expired within five minutes. After being
placed in jail yesterday, Stoop sent for an
attorney, but when attempting to explain
the circumstances attending the killing be

THE ELECTIONS BILL.
Senator Paddock Think* It Should be
Washixgtgh, December 25th.— The Post
tomorrow will say that Senator Paddock
of Nebrwka was in earnest when he
warned the Senate a few daye ago that he
would move to lay aside the elections bill,
and take up the pure focd bill, and he will
before long again take occasion to renew
the warning. He'will first give his party,
however, ample opportunity to either pass
the elections bill or conclude to lay it aside.
In this connection it may be interesting
to state that Paddock has been misquoted
from the beginning in regard to his posi
tion on this bill. A dispatch orieinally
sent from here, describes an interview al
leged to have taken place between tbe Pre
sident and the Sena'or. in which the for
mer is said to have upraidei the latter for
not supporting the bill:
"The interview thus picturesquely re
lated not only never occurred," said Pad
dock, "but the President never mentioned
either the elections bill nor tarifi bill to
me. I have never said I would not vote
for the elections bill," continued the Sen
ator, "although I have been quoted as
saying so. The truth is that there is
nothing in the provisions of the bill ob
jectionable to me. My position is in re
gard to the consideration of the hill at
this time as unwise. I think it would be
better to discuss and pass the financial
measure. The elections bill is a purely
political matter, in which only the
straight-out Republicans in the conntrv
are interested, while financial legislation
vitally concerns all business men, and is
sadly needed. Certainly this is the situa
tion in Nebraska. I have not yet re
ceived a single letter from my State, either
for or against the elections bill, which is
a sure indication of a lack of interest
THE PACIFIC MAIL COMPANY.
Vice-President Houston Comments on
New Yobk, December 25:h.—Concerning
the letter of the Chamber of Commerce of
Lima Congress to the Pc; avian Ministry,
urging an extension of the facilities of the
Pacific Mail Company, James B. Honston,
Vice-President aDd General Manc.ger of
the company says: "There is some mis
apprehension on the score of time required
for our voyages from Ntw York to Colon.
The Lima merchants ask that the time be
shortened to eight days. As a matter of
fact, our steamers never make a run in
more than seven days and a half, while in
the last three months some voyages have
been made in six days. On this point,
therefore, we are asked to make the voyage
really longer than the present schedules,
and I fancy there is a mistake somewhere.
If we make the number of voyages four
each month from New York, "we would
have to have a complimentary service on
the Pacific side between San Francisco and
Panama. To do this would require the
adding of two more steamers to the Pacific
route. We would be glad to increase the
number of voyages if the business were
profitable, or if we could see that it was
capable of development. Tbe subject will
be thoroughly examined. There is great
hope from the steamship business in the
idea of reciprocity with South America.
If carried out it promises a large develop
ment to tbe industry and leads me to take
a chearful view of the future. I have
fouDd in the last year that the proposition
has grown in favor with the northwestern
membera of Congress, and the outlook is
for action in that direction, I believe."

Boston, December 25th.—The ship-bnild
ing business of Massachusetts and Maine
dnrin* 1890 seems to confirm the state
ment made a year ago that the three and
four-masted schooners had come to stay.
Maice has launched since January Ist
about 112 vessels of all descriptions. Bath
contributed forty-four. The beautiful
Shenandoah, of 3,048 gross tonnage, spread
ing 11,000 yards of canvas, takes the lead
as a full-rigged ship, the largest wooden
ship that floats under the American flag,
and the Partha is not far behind with
her 9,000 yards of canvas, together with
the Rappahannock and St. Mary, both
first-class ships, all of Bath, and also
one bark and seven barkentines, including
a four-master, the Steadfast, of Belfast, all
vessels to be proud of. Yet about SO per
cent, of the merchant fleet built in New
England this year has been made up of
fore-and-afters, many of them handsome,
swift and large carriers which can be run
at a comparatively Moderate expense, such
as the Glenwood, 1,569 tons; Charles A.
Campbell, 1,531 tons; George 6. Walcott,
1,476 tons, arjd Marjorie. 1,337 tons.
Massachusetts furnishes a fair record for
new tonnage this year.
A 9lissis»ippi Postmaster Killed by a
Memphis, December 25;h.—A special to
the Appeal Avalanche from Carrollton,
Miss., says: John Prentis3 Matthews. Re
publican Postme3tfr at t'-at pace, was
killed to-day by W. S. Mcßride, a wealthy
and prominent young druggist. The dis
patch asserts that Matthews has rendered
himself odious to the people of the com
munity by his dissolute conduct. Mcßride
had an altercation with him at tbe Post
office last nUht, resulting in a £Uht. To
day a dispatch says that Matthews started
out armed with a rifle, cursing and threat
ening to kill Mcßride. He was finally
arrested by the Sheriff. When released on
bail he returned to the Postoffice and got
his gun and started for Mcßride's store.
Mcßride came out with a shotgun and
fired, killing him instantly. Matthews'
brothel is United States Marshal of the
Southern District of Mississippi.
Juvenile Victims of Fashion.
Why will not fashion let the children
alone? If ladies will insist on promenading
the streets in costumes which astonish the
giddy multitude and in some cases augment
its giddiness, they might at least concede
something to taste and fitness in the garb
of the girls and boys. A fashionably dressed
child out for an airing in Fifth avenue or
in one of the uptown parks differs but little
in outward appearances from an "infant
orodiey" at the circus. The tinsel and
feathers oi the saw-dust ring have been
transferred to the sidewalk, and the little
misses and masters of the "gay world"
whom one meets in the grand promenades
on a fine day are got up faithfully after the
precocious tight-rope and slack-wire
dancers and the ten-year-old gymnasts at
tached to the troupes of traveline show
The show mothers of the ton may, per
haps, array their show children in richer
materials than the circus men can afford to
put on the backs of their juvenile riders,
dancers and tumblers; but to the casual
observer the youngsters of the canvas tent
and of the brown-stone mansion seem to
belong to the same mountebank tribe. The
airs and graces of fashion's youthful troupe
are in too many cases, we regret to say,
also similar to those of their painted rivals
in the arena—quite as bold, quite as arti
What will be the womanhood and the

The girls will be coquettes, the boys snobs.
They are so already, in their small way.
The present generation of modish Ameri
cans is a most ridiculous spectacle in the
eyes of their national countrymen and
countrywomen; what the next will be
heaven only knows. Judging from what
we see of the microcosm, we fear that the
full-grown fashionable world of twenty
yeare hence will beat Bartholomew Fair in
the gaudiness of its trappings, and in flip
pancy and affectation surpass all that dra

line.— Xew York Ledger.

THE SALVATION ASMS.
Commander Smith's Resignation An
nounced by the Press.
London, December 25th.—The Tfmtt an
nounces that Commissioner Smith, of the
Salvation Army, haa resigned. The resigna
tion, the 7iwies says, is most important, be
cause he formed a substantial guarantee
that an earnest, business-like eiiort would
be made lo execute the practicable part of
General Booth's scheme nf social reform.
The authorship of "In Darke3t England"
is now common knowledge, but a charita
ble hypothesis assigns General Booth the
credit for having written at least two chap
ters of that bcok. Booth's explanation is
that he supplied a professional writer with
materials for the work.
The Times believes that when the wliole
story is revealed it will be found that sub
stantial parts of the scheme of city and
farm colonies originated with Commis
sioner Smith. Nothing but a sense ot
duty, the Times adds, could have induced
Commissioner Smith to resign at so im
portant an adjuncture. There must be
something wrong with the scheme, or the
management of funds. Those who prom
ised donations are entitled to withhold
them until a satisfactory account of Smith's
resignation is given. He wa9 the lifs and
soul of the social reform wing of the
army. It is likely his resignation is des
tined to be the death-blow to Booth's more
