STORMS IN THE EAST.
PlTTSBUKO. Pa., Oct. 14. The storm in
West Virginia on Monday night did a
great deal of damage to crops, bridges and
the railroads, all along the Monongahela
river and its tributaries. Near Clarksburg
a cloudburst drenched the country, and all
the small streams became rushing torrents
immediately. Traffic on the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad between Pittsburg and
Wheeling was closed until this morning
when communication was again establish
ed. At Triadelphia a bridge was washed
away, and, although a force of men were
put to work, a temporary bridge was
not rendered passable urlil early this
uioroimr. Communication with the upper
Monongahela has been entirely suspended.
A gentleman who left Morgautown by
boat on Sunday morning arrived today by
train. The captain found it impossible to
pass through lock No. 9, and passengers in
a hurry to get to Pittsburg had to put
back to Morgantown and take the train
to Fairmont, proceeding via Wheeling.
The only life lost by the storm so far was
William Winters, of Viola, Marshall conn
ty, aged 19. He had crossed the creek to
rescue a little child, aud on the way back
his horse lost his footing and Winters and
the animal were drowned.
ON THE LAKES.
Detroit, Mich., Oct. 14. The worst
storm of the season was reported on the
lakes this morning. At Oscoda many
vessels had taken refuge in the harbor, and
were dragging their anchors aud in im
minent danger of going ashore. At Port
Arthur the wind is blowing at the
rate of forty miles an hour. All
the materials in use in the construc
tion of the breakwater were washed
away, and considerable portions
of the structure is gone. The men work
ing on the breakwater were rescued at an
early hour this morning with difficulty.
At Alpena, the barge, J. F. Warner, was
blown ashore and went to pieces. She w.is
owned in Bay City and valued at $5,000.
The schooner M. It. Gregory, of Chicago,
went ashore in the White Fish bay. It is
thought she can get ashore when the sea
goes down. An immense .fleet has taken
shelter in Pigeon bay, Lake Erie, from the
THE BOYCOTT CAMPAIGN.
Medicine Lodge. Kan.. Oct. 13. Spe
cial Correspondence. The advice of
Madam Lease to the People's party, to
boycott the opposition, has reached here,
and, in convention assembled, they declare
the following: "Voted to withdraw aud
withhold support from the Medicine
Lodge Cresset. The action wjis taken be
cause of the bitter attitude the Cresset has
taken ag.iinsl the Alliance and because of
its small regard for truth and fair-dealings."
But this was not the stopping point,
they sent one of their number to certain
business firms aud insisted that if they
continued to use the Cresset as an adver
tising medium, they would lose the pat
ronage of the Alliance. Thus we see now
the People's party at Jerry's home are
undertaKing to conduct a campaign It
is rule or ruiu.
The Index was out again last week
showing Jerry,s noble character, and the
same is signed by his neighbors. Nelgh

lives west of town; and when Jerry is not
living in town he is on his farm about
six miles east. The fact is, there
has not been any certificate from any of
his neighbors as to the character or any
thing else. All signatures to any such
statements were secured irom poople resid
ing any place except in his neighborhood.
Wo think the Rev. Mr. Sanderson in his
interview iu the Hutchinson News of the
Uth inst., deals Jerry a fair, square blow
between the eyes, with more truth than

moment, Jerry's grasping nature got tho
better of him, and he at once concluded he
must increase his income faster. Whereupon
he sent to Kansas City, Mo., and purchased

seven cents jier pound. Whenever he re
ceived an invoice from Kansas City ho
would take it out to the farm, work itover

sell it for pure country butter. Jerry even

his nature. Four years ago he said as a
Union Laborite: "The time is not far dis

get $2.00 a day for his labor." But two
years later, as a contractor, he says, "A
man who cannot live on $1.00 a day" ought
to starve." Jerry will certainly be starved

BURIAL OF MRS. B00TE
An Imposing Demonstration in London by
the Salvation Army.
London, Oct. 14. The funeral of Mrs.
Catherine Booth, wife of General Booth,
who was kuown as the "mother of the
cr l.. ...- .....) 4.--1. i . i . i
Salvation Army,' took place today, and
wis made the occasion of a great .lemon-
stratiou by that organization. The weather
was exceedingly disagreeable, a murky
fog enveloping tho city; but, despite this,
thousands of persons assembled in the
streets to witness the funeral procession.
The route from tho Thames embankment,
where the army mustered, to Aubrey
Park cemetery, where the remains were
interred, lay "through the densely popu
lated districts of Stoke and Newington
The entire route was lined with dense
crowds of spectators, and the windows of
houses were thronged with occupants and
their friends, all anxious to witne-s the
last demonstration of love and respect
paid to their leader by the devoted mem
bers of the army. All the railways enter
ing London ran excursion trains, and the
throng in the city was augmented by im
mense numbers of Salvationists and'their
friends from the provinces. There was
alo nn attendance from fbreign countries.
The members of the army, attired in their
uniform and wearing a" white badge of
mourning, were everywhere conspicuous
in the crowded street. The crowds on
stration was a convincing uroof to the
publie that the Salvation Army wields a
powerful influence throughout the country.
RAILROAD PRESIDENTS' MEETING.
CHICAGO. Oct. H The Association of
Railroad Presidents held a meeting here
today. There was a full attendance of
members, every raid being represented
either by it president, vice-president or
general manager. They entered into a
discussion of the situation, which lasted
nearly two hours, theu adjourned to meet
again when the chairman deems it advisa
ble to call them together Thev hardly
seemed to think the emersenc sufficiently
strong to justify them iu doing anything
now toward reorgnnuung the .v-socialion
or attempting to straighten out the com
plications thnt exist m freight and passen
ger tariffs. Chairman Walker was in
structed to go ahead on the e en tenor of
his way. aud do whatever he thought best
to Iks done with tho business that may
come before him.
FRANCE WILL RETALIATE.
Paris. Oct, 14 The French government
has decided to submit to the senate and
chamber of deputies simultaneously a bill
providing for a maximum Freuch tariff in
goods from countries whose customs regu
lations are unfavorable to French products,
and a minimum tariff on imports from
countries whose tariff is favorable to
France, The bill empowers the govern
mout to adopt a minimum tariff provision
ally, but the sanction of the two chambers
will be necessary for its present adoption.
A BLOODY DUEL.
Charlotte, N. C. Oct. 14. At Lexing
ton, about fifty miles from Charlotte, one
of the bloodiest duels ever fought on
North Carolina soil, has taken place. For
a long while John M'Orary has been
watching Oscar Barringer, who seemed to
pay M'Crary's wife more attention than
the latter thought was right. On several
occasions M'Crary has forbidden his wife
to accompany Barrlnger to any places of
amusements, saying that he was suspic
ious of an intimacy between the two.
Several days ago, M'Crary came home and
found Barringer seated in the parlor in a
deep conversation with the wife. Mc
Crary concluded that now was the most
opportune time for him to forever cut the
friendship that had developed into love.
M'Crary ordered Barringer out of his
house, and told him that if he ever caught
him in conversation with his wife again
that one or the other would have to forfeit
his life. For a while this warning was
heeded by Barringer and the community
thought that the matter had been
smoothed over. Barringer could not sup
press the desire to see Mrs. M'Crary and
he wrote her a very loving note, asking
Eermission to see her at the earliest possi
le moment. The note of Barringer never
reached Mrs. M'Crary, but fell into the
husband's hands. Instead of a reply from
the woman, he received a challenge for a
duel, which was to take place at a suita
ble spot near Lexington. In M'Crary's
note, he gave Barringer the preference of
either leaving the state or confronting him
in a duel. The challenge was promptly
accepted by Barringer, and on Saturday
euenincr about 5 o'clock thev retired to tho
selected place to settle the affair. Both
men were armed with Smith & Wesson
pistols. A soon as the seconds declared
everything in readiness, they both began
firing. Alter both had emptied their pis
tols. Barringer lell to the ground dead.
M'Crary hau aimed well andhad sent three
balls into the body of his victim. M'Crary
has fied from Lexington, and his where
abouts are still unknown. The affair has
caused much excitement. M'Crary's wife
wept bitterly over the dead body of Bar
ringer. THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEERS.
Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 14. The twenty
seventh annual conference of tho Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers will open in
the old city hall, in this city, tomorrow
morning. The first day's business will be
of a preliminary nature, the real work of
the convention not beginning until Friday.
Thursday afternoon an open meeting will
be held in the Grand opera house, upon
which occasion Mayor Courley will deliver
an address of welcome. Hon. Chauncey
M. Depew, president of tho New York
Central railroad, has accepted an invita
tion to be present. He will arrive in the
city tomorrow or next day, aud will ad
dress the meeting at the opera house
Thursday. Other distinguished srentle-
men will be present. Chief Arthur will
not undertake to announce the multitude
of items which will come before the con
vention for consideration. One feature,
however, in the line of new business, is
the proposition to accept membership in
the United Order of Railway Employes.
Mr. Arthur does no commit himself now
as to his views on this matter, saying that
it is a question for the convention to de
cide. Other delegates are outsnoken in
their opposition to any federation. Grand
Master Workman T. v. Powderly, of the
Knights of Labor, has written to know
when the convention wijl begin work. It
is believed by labor authorities that Mr.
Powderly will have an important com
munication to lay before the convention.
The character of it, however, no one pre
tends to anticipate.
New York. Oct. 14. The police in va
rious parts of the city, and particularly in
the Fourteenth precinct, are keeping a
bright lookout nowadays for those soiled
heathen the anarchists. Every year
about this time these people begin their
plans for celebrating the anniversary of
the execution of the Chicago bomb
throwers and murderers.
The police authorities long ago put the
seal of their disapproval on these long
haired patriots by interrupting their meet
ings aud arresting the participants. The
anniversary does not take place until
November 11, but usually at this time of
year the "committees" arrange their pre
liminaries. Thus far, however, there seems to be
little or no excitement. One meeting was
held in the Fourteenth precinct Saturday
night, but nothing of an incendiary natnre
developed. The detectives were there, but
they report that a good many of the lead
ers in former celebrations were absent,
having sought greener fields and pastures
new in districts less rigidly controlled by
the law. The inflammatory circulars that
appeared about this time last year, to
gether with the public announcements of
"murdered patriots anniversaries," have
not yet come to the notice of the authori
ties. CHICAGO RAILROADS.

Farmers' alliances of the southwest was
discovered today, when it was learned that
they are about to establish independent
stock yards in Kansas City, Kansas. The
alliances of Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Ne
braska and Iowa, are at the back of the
scheme. Fifty acres of land adjoining the
present stock yards is the site of the new
yards. By maintaining their own yards
the farmers believe they cau save much
money in marketing their cattle by doing
away with the commission men and a
great part of other expenses.
PlTTSBUHG, Pa , Oct. 14. The revision
committee of the Presbyterian general as
sembly closed its first session today, to

New York, Oct. 14. The following an
nouncement will appear in the World to
morrow: "Yielding to the advice of his
physicians Mr. Joseph Pulitzer has with
drawn entirely from the editorship of the
World. For the past two years Mr. Pulit
zer has been unable by, reason of a mis
fortune to his sight, to give personnl
supervisiou to the conduct of his journal.
In the opinion of his physicians the im
perfect and unsatisfactory connection with
its management has prevented a
completer restoration of his sight. To se
cure relief from what is felt to be hin
drance to recovery, the controi of the
World has been vested in an executive
board of its principal editors, who have
been long in its service, and have conduct
ed it in the absence of the chief. The
change is thus more nomiual than other
wise. It involved no change of men,
methods, principle or policy. The World
will continue to be guided by the ideas of
the man who made it what it is.
KANSAS ODD FELLOWS.
TOPEKA, Kan., Oct. 14. At the state
convention of Odd Fellows the following
committees reported: Finance. Chairman

man W. A. Shannon; jndiciary and ap
peals, Chairman E. S. Bertram; state of
the order, Chairman George W. Jones;
grievances and appeals, Chairman A H.
Dow; legislation. Chairman John Carlton.
The report of Grand Master Voorhis was
submitted this morning. Of the condition
of the order he said:
"The year has been a fairly prosperous
one. The meeting of the sovereign grand
lodge within our borders has stimulated an
interest in our work, and added to this the
fact that the past and present officers have
oeen prompt to assisu m everj tuv pos-
sible, will account for our continued pro
Deritv as an order. Twenty-two subordi
nate lodges have been organized and a
charter restored to one, making an increase
of twenty-three, and we have lost three by
surrender of charters. A few lodges have
f. n led to send in reports, and I cannot give
the exact increase in membership, but it
will be over o00."
Of the Rebekah degree, he says: "I sin
cerely hope the day is not very far distant
when this branch of the order will manage
its own affairs just as the encampment
and patriarchs militant manage theirs. I
am convinced the sisters will cheerfully
shoulder the responsibility and gladly dis
pense with our interference and services."
The rcporl of the grand secretary shows
the number of members to be 15,635. The
receipts of the subordinate lodges for the
year has been $134,676.73. The disburse
ments including sick and funeral benefits,
amounting to $30,074.79 Seventy-two

an American woman, were released from
jail Saturday morning. They were tried
in the Mexican court and found guilty in
spite of their assertions of innocence, and
Walters was sentenced to be shot and Mc
Laughlin to ten years in jail. The case

Chiltov, Wis., Oct. 14. The excitement
caused by the discovery of pearls in the
Sujrar riTer. near Albany in this state, has
spread to this locality. The gems have
oeen discovered in tne north and south

lakes which lie in the county of Calumet.
The water is very clear and comes mostly
from springs, wnich are quite numerous
in this connty. The bottoms of these
streams are sandy and full of gravel, and

THE SANTA FE'S NEW SCHEME.
ST. Louis, Oct. 14. A railroad man unon
what, he said, was good authority, said the
Santa Fe will extend its line from Kansas
City to Memphis paralleling the Kansas
City, Fort Scott and Memphis road. The
line, it is said, will run through the coun
ties of Douglas and Otark, in Missouri,
and through Sutton, Sharp, Independence,
Jackson, Poinsett and Crittenden, in
Arkansas to Memphis. The informant
stated that the new road would assume
definite proportions within the next eigh
teen months. Should the report prove
true, and the extension be made, the Santa
Fe will prove a somewhat troublesome
competitor for the Memphis.!

killed and injured. A special train with
physicians left here for the scene of the

Indians, attracted considerable attention.
It seems thnt the national council of tho
Osages leased to Brown & Bros, several
hundred acres of land for tho pasturage of
cattle. The lease began In 1&S3. The In
dians recognized thissimply as a lease re
vocable at their will. Last fall they re
voked the agreement, and asked Brown &
Bros to remove their cattle. In the
round-up 3,000 cattlo were found,
only twenty-seven of which proved
to be the property of Brown & Bros. Tho
remainder belonged to R. S. Owens. The
Indians found the lauds had been sub
leased, which tbey claim was contrary to
the agreement. The Indians wished to set
aside the agreement, and proceeded to con
fiscate the cattle and destroy the fences on
the premises. R, S. Owens prayed the
court to enjoin them from so doing' Owens

colored children in any district is less than
ten, they may have the privilege of attend
ing soma ouo of tho districts of the county.
This might necessitate the colored chil
dren walking miles in order to have school
advantages. Is it not a denial of any
school privileges at all? Is it not uncon
stitutional Is It not reaching into tho
United States treasury and taking ouf

This territory is settled np by poor people.
It will be a burden in any event to main
tain schools. This section means that not
only colored children, but white children,
must bo deprived of school privileges.
Suppose the district has sixty children.
What is the result? You must establish
two schools. This they will not be ablo to
do. Two months' school will be the result.
It not only works a hardship to the colored
child, but also to the whiu child. Any in
telligent man can readily see this section in
in direct violation of the constitution of
the United States.
I wish to call the attention of the coun
cil to several points in the school law un
der consideration. The vast majority of
people are of Indian descent Indian and
African descent. Mixed races will bo ad
mitted into the schools. Down iu tho
Pottawottaraie reservation thoso of Indian
descent would have to go into one school
and those of Alricaa descent tuibt, go into
another. This will make an unfortu
nate condition of affairs in this territory.
He traced the history of the prejudica
acrainst the colered people since the war.
His remarks revealed the fact that much
of his life had beeu devoted to journalism
and he hail noted the softening of feeling
against the blacks while a traveling cor
respondent for a Cinciunati paper in the
south. He thought that the wail of Repa
ration was growing thinner with every year,
but until it was worn away It must be
recognized if the schools would be a suc
cess. He objected to the paragraph because
it was ambiguous while his substitute wan
certain. He claimed that local option was
the only true solution of tha color ques
tion. Mr. Blxler said: "You may pass laws to
compel the admission of colored ahildren
to schools with white children, but they
will never lw enforced iu the southern pare
of the torrttory "
Brown of l,ogan Do you man to say
thnt the southern part of the territory will
not obey the law
Mr. Bixler I mean to say, air, that
there are laws in the nitures of men
stronger than any on the statute books.
There is a strong feeling against the com
mingling of the races both north and
south. Colored people do not respect :v
white woman who would wed a colored
man and a white man who marries a color
ed woman is ostracized from society. "Do
you think," he continued, "thnt Governor
Steele could give a reception nnd invite tho
colored people If he did the white
would not attend."
Mr. Brown of Logan Do you think ho
would make any distinction? Republicans
do not recogui7i' any distillation."
Mr. Bixler objected to interruptions and
proceeded with hi speech.
Mr. McCartney, replying to the ntnte
ment that a lcadinc Republican of King
fisher had said he hoped they would not
havo mixed schools, said: "Ho maj
call himself a Republican, but down in his
heart he is not a Republican. I belisva iu
mixed schools, unequivocally. I do not
believe it is a part of legislation to favor
prejudice, but to legislate against it, I bo
Iieve iu the Declaration of Indapedenoo
and the constitution of thu United Statert.
I believe that every man should be equal
before the law. We have got to meet the
colored people In business and in every
calling of life, and thank God thoy uru
now our equals before the law. The com
mon schools should prepare us for tho
practicabilities of life. Advance them in
education and you purify their morals aud .

may separate them." Ho didn't believe

Mr. Brown, of Logan, took tho position
that it was the duty of the leeinlators to
make no distinction. "Tbe laws of tho
United States fall, like tho dew of heaven,
upon white and black alike We are here
as wards of th United State a minor
child and our acta must not do riolenco
