Xew Orleans, March 30.—A brutal
attempt at wholesale murder was mado
at Xew Zion Church, near Liberty, Miss.,
on Saturday night at the school examina
tion aud concert given at Parson Hill
school-house, where Miss Ida Dixon, col
ored, had just closed a session oftho pub

Tbe teacher and her pupils were sing

audience of colored people. Quite a

crowded with teachers, pupils and spec
Suddenly a double-barreled shotgun
heavily charged with shot was fired into
the assemblage by some unknown mis

slightly. Baldwin Hays will "probably

The assassin has not been discovered.
Strikers Attack Coke Works in Penn
sylvania and Destroy tho Ovens.
Pittsrurg, March 30. —Xearly one
thousand strikers attacked the Fricke
Coko Works at Morowood at 2 o'clock
this morning, destroyed tho ocjke ovens
and tho railway track and broke the win
dows of several houses. Soveral of the
raiders were arrested. A riot is also re
ported at Leisenring and Leith, where
considerable property was destroyed.
There is great excitement throughout the
coke country and more trouble is appre
hended. The troubles, which have as
sumed a new phase, now threaten to de
velop into a war between the operators
and labor organizations. Fricke stated
to-day that heretofore he had not antago
nized labor, but in the future he did not
propose to stand idly by and see his prop
PiTTsnt'iKi, March 30.—The most event
ful day in the coke strike, closing with
this evening, was favorable to the men.
Although three of the principal works
were raided, the labor leaders claim that
uo preconcerted attack was made. Early
this morning strains of their favorite
band woke all the strikers on the road
from Scottdale to Bradford, and in a short
while fifteen hundred men followed their
path, which was directed to the Jimtown
plant of H. C. Frick,A Co. The works
were captured without a struggle. A few
workers were struck with stones, but the
strikers dispersed without serious dam
Some time later a terrific report in the
direction of the Leisenring works gave
warning of trouble there and thousands
gathered to witness tho work ofthe first
bomb exploded by the strikers. The
shock was felt several miles but its only
visible effect was the tearing of a great
hole in front of the non-union workers'
After this the workmen at Leisenring
Xo. 2 and 3 were chased out ofthe yards.
A few men at the Leith works were also
driven out, though nobody is reported as
badly injured. Trouble is also talked of
at the Trotter plant, but this is denied by
'flic big Morewood plant of Frick <fcCo.
also contributed more than its quota to
the exciting events of the day. About
3,000 strikers gathered about "the place
and swept the armed deputies aside. Xot
a blow was struck and not a shot was
fired, as such a move would have been
fatal to both guards and workers in tlie
face of 3,000 determined strikers. After
the abandonment of the works by the
guards, an hour of mad wrecking fol
lowed. Tracks, doors, and, in fact, every
thing movable, was torn and wrenched
aside by the maddened crowd, who only
left, after the plant had been mutilated
beyond immediate repair.
At Uniontown, to-night, Judge Ewing
granted a preliminary injunction against
all men assembling at the Frick works,
not employed by that company, anil set
Saturday for the hearing of a permanent
Sheriff McCormick. with a number of
nrmod deputies, left Uniontown to-night
to arrest the leaders in the several raids.
Probably the ugliest feature was the
number oi women participating, the most
seriously injured man being Pit, a boss
cooper, who was struck again and again
by an iron bar in the hands of an infuri
A secret meeting will be held to-night
by the strikers, who will certainly pre

head, this morning. The Sheriff asked
permission to use the arms of the two
companies of the Xational Guard to pro

TUNNEL ACCIDEXT IN XEW YORK.
Tlie Grand Jury Investigating the
Cause of the Dl-sn-ster.
Xew York, March 30.—Chaunccy M.
Depew appeared before the Grand Jury
to-day as a witness in its investigation
into the recent New Yu'.k Central tunnel
accident. Later the jury waited upon
Judge Fitzgerald and asked him a num
ber of questions.
In the course of his reply the Judge
said: "It the Directors of the railroad
have the control and management ofthe
road, it is their duty to sec that the re
quirements of the law for the safety of
the traveling public are regarded. Any
person concerned in the commission df
an act is amenable as a liable party.
The law says that some person shall be
responsible. Those people control the
management of this road. They have a
clear duty imposed upon them by the
statute. If they violated the statute, an
indictment should be found; and let me
say that while it is proper in cases where
persons of eminent standing in the com
munity have serious charges made
against them, it is well to carefully in
quire into all particulars, yet the law re
quires that the same law should be en
forced against them as against anyone
else. If the facts warrant, an indictment
•hould be found."
Judge Fitzgerald's words created a stir
in court. In reply to further questions
the court said the Directors could be
charged with misdemeanor, as well as
There is no doubt in the mind of any
person who was in the court-room when
the jury filed out but that a truo bill will
be found against the Directors of-the road.

Chicaoo, March 30.—The case of J. J.
West vs. Tho People of the State of Illi
nois, in which an opinion was handed
I down by the Supreme Court at Ottawa

operation of the Huiskamp Brothers
Company and others, wealthy capitalists
of Keokuk, lowa, and bought the Times
from the heirs of the late William F.
Storey, and West was installed as man
ager of the paper on behalf of the syndi
cate. The company became so largely
involved by the extravagant manager
of the trust that the Huiskamps and their
associates found it necessary to oust West
from the management in order to protect
I the property. An investigation of the
i alfairs of the company disclosed the fact
that there was an over-issue of stock to
the extent of several hundred shares, and
criminal proceedings were at once insti
tuted against West and Secretary Graham,
j West was found guilty and sentenced to
; five years in the Penitentiary, while Cra-
I ham was acquitted. An appeal was taken
I to the Supreme Court, which reversed the
judgment and remanded the case.

Portland (Or.), March 30. — The
steamer Sussex, tho lirst of the Upton
Line from Japan, will tind 2,100 tons of
Hour awaiting her here on hor arrival.
Speaking of the cut in rates on tlour
threatened by the Canadian Pacific Steam
ship Company, a Hour shipper said to
day: "There will be no cut in rates, for
we will not patronize any company that
cuts rates. Any cutting of rates will
ruin the Honr business."
A gentleman interested in the success
of the steamship line between Portland
and Japan said: "If the Canadian Pacific
Company should cut rates, it would only
be forthe purpose of running olf the
Upton Line, and then they would put up
rates again. Portland shippers hold the
key to the situation, for thero is no Hour
to be shipped to China from -British
Columbia, and they will refuse to patron
ize any company which cuts rates."

Service ollieers declare that tho two-*
dollar silver certificate counterfeit is a
most dangerous ono. The vignette of
Hancock is as fino as the original, and the
lettering and lathe-work is an exact copy
of tho Treasury note. In fact, tho only
difference is too minute to bo visible to
the naked eye.
In the upper left-hand and lower right
hand corners of the genuine note is a
figure "2," and on it.s face is engraved, in
characters so minute that they aro not
legible except under a magnifying glass,
tho word "two," repeated three times.
In the •■ounterfeit the word "two" is en
graved tho same number of times, but in
two cases the counterfeiter has made the

Tho discovery of tho counterfeit is not
a new thing. Attention was called to it
some time ago, but the unknown counter

99 L CODE OF TEXAS.
Tho S >me Court Renders an Im
poi Decision Concerning It.
W.v ;ton, ' arc ).—The Supremo
Cour , c UniU. i States to-day refused
to g bi tie application for a writ of
habi - <jus in tho somewhat celebrated
muK.cr caso of Dick Duncan vs. McCall,
Sherilf of Bexar County, Tex., in which
it was sought to bring into question tho
validity of tho entire Penal Code of tho
State of Texas.
Duncan was duly indicted, tried and
convicted in Texas of murder, and sen
tenced to be hanged.
He appealed tho case through all the in
"ermediate courts of the State of Texas,
and when the Court of Appeals of tiie
Lono Star Stato decided against him, the
case was taken to tho United States Court,
and the decisions still being against him,
it was brought here.
The Supreme Court, in an opinion by
Chief Justice Fuller, affirms the judg
ment of the Circuit Court from which tho
last appeal was taken.
Duncan's contention was that the Penal
Code of Texas had never been lawfully
enacted in accordance with the require
ments of the State Constitution, and that
the code enrolled differed, through the
errors of enrolling clerks, from tho code
passed by tho Stato Legislature.
"The State of Texas," says the opinion,
"is in full possession of its faculties as a
member of the I'nion, and its legislative,
executive and judicial departments are
peacefully operating by orderly and
settled methods prescribed by the funda

have or have not a binding force, is for
tho Stato to determine, and that deter
mination in itself involves no infraction

It is Looked Upon ns a Sipm ot tho Ap
proach of Critical Days.
Berlin, March 30.—The Cologne Ga
zette, commenting upon the murder of
Baltchctt", the Bulgarian Minister of
Finance, says: The importance of Balt
chefi's murder is enhanced by the coinci
dence that the new agitation in Bulgaria
has been traced to the Russians, and the
fact that papers which related to tho
French Foreign Office declare that the
mandate- which the Constantinople con
ference granted to Prince Alexander, the
deposed ruler of Bulgaria, cannot he con
tinued to Prince Ferdinand, tho present
ruler of tho country. It is reported that
a note has been issued by De Giers, the
Russian Secretary of State for Foreign
Affairs, forerunning the intention of
Russia to intervene in tho Balkans. This
circumstance, says the Cologne Gazette,
combined with tho demonstrative mass
ing of Russian troops on the Austrian

I"\ r.cuTTA, March 30.—A dispatch from
Manipur, Province of Assam, says that
.lames Quinton, the Chief Commissioner
j of Assam, has been investigating somo of
the troubles which havo occurred among
j the nativo chiefs, with tho view of arrest
ing ono of them, who has been instru
mental in deposing the Rajah. Tlio Com
missioner occupied a camp garrisoned by
a strong force of Goorkhas, native in
fantry in the British service. Suddenly
this camp was attacked by a number of
hostile tribes. A two days' battle, dur
ing which desperate fighting took place,
followed the onslaught. Tho Goorkhas
fought most determinedly against heavy
odds, and. according to report, 470 of
them woro killed. Seven British officers
who accompanied the Commissioner and
that officer cannot be found.
Tho news of tho massacre was brought
to Kohima, on the Assam frontier, by
two Goorkhas. It originated in a feud be
tween tho Rajah of Manipur and a lead
ing tribal chief. The Rajah was deposed,
and appealed to the Viceroy. Mr. Quin
ton was sent to settle the trouble, and
started from headquarters at Shillong,
escorted by the Forty-second and Forty
fourth Goorkha Light Infantry.
After crossing the frontier, Quinton
summoned the chiefs toadurbar at Mani
pur, for tho purpose of arresting the re
bellious chiefs. The tribesmen, pretend
tending to obey the summons, mustered
in force, and at midnight, on the day be
fore on which the durbar was to bo held,
suddenly attacked the camp of Commis
sioner Quinton, which lay between Ko
hima and Manipur. The attempt to sur
prise the camp failed, and the tribesmen
were driven back. Thoy returned, how
ever, and kept up tho attack and siego
night and day for forty-eight hours.
Finally the ammunition of the Goorkhas
gave out, and Commissioner Quinton was
obliged to givo the order, "Active gui

One account of the affair reports that
Commissioner Quinton and his start" wero

that Colonel Skene, tho commander:
Commissioner Quinton, with his son and
daughter; Captain Berleau and six offi
cers were killed, the natives refusing to
givo them quarter.
The rebellious tribe is famous for its
cunning, cruelty and bravery. Immedi
ately upon receiving the news of the dis

Two native regiments stationed in Assam
havo already beeu dispatched to Mani

British Grain Market.
London, March 30.— The Mark Lane
Express says: "English wheats are strong
at an advance of ls. Foreign showed an
average rise of Od. Trade is firmer all
along tho lines. Tho prospects of tho
wheat crops in Russia, Austria and Hun
gary give hope of an increased export
surplus amounting to 4,000,000 quarters.
Against this may be set the certainty of a
heavy import demand trom France,
Italy, Belgium, Holland and Germany.
The deficiency in those countries, com
bined with the wants in England, is ex
pected to absorb the surplus wheat of
America, Austria and Russia, thus caus
iug a decidedly higher mean value during
tho cereal wheat season of 1891-92."
