ST. LOUIS, Aug. 11.For two weeks
Notary Watts has been engaged in taking
depositions in what is known as the Cham
rs-Danieroii suit, a litigation between two
"p.'ominent Methodist brethren, involving
certain publication rights. Chambers is a
bjok-publisher, and Dameron is the well
known Logan D. Dameron, publisher of the
Chridi.au, Adc'icnte, of this city. Until to
day the developements of the case had been
so prosy and monotonous that most of the
local pipers hud declined to give them more
than a pis-dn. notice. To-day, however,
Mis. Emma II bert was placed on the wit
ness stand, and her testimony at once gave a
character to thy case that made it
She was a witness for Caarnb-jrs. She tes
tified that she was the wife of E. A. Rob
erts, resident physician of St. Lake's hospi
tal. On tho 4th of JUIIJ, 1871, a young lady
named Miss Emily Robinson wa3 brought

usually pretty. The followiug ia the pith of
the Htory: "I reoaivel tiie pitisut iu the

I inquired into her condition, etc., and as
signed her to her room. Then I saw her two
or three days after that, bat hid no conver

etc., to know whether she was better or
worse. Tae second evening after her arrival
he was taken wors9 and sent for me said
6HE HAD A SECBET
to tell me. I went to her room, and she
requested that nil should leave and the door
be closed, and her first question was
"Mis. Roberts, do you think I am dying,
or going to die?"
I told her Dr. Pallen told mo that he
thought she would die, and she held up her
bands and looked at them and said: "Yes,
Mrs. Roberts, I know I am going to die. I
feel like it, and do you think that God vviU
forgi-.'e ino for my great sin?"
She then asked me if I knew her con
dition. I told her I did, that Dr. Pallen had
told me, and I said: "Emily, you have been
taking some medicine that had made you
very sick," and she said "Yea."
I asked her whore sho had got the medi
cine, nnd she said she got it of Mrs. Engles,
Seventh an Lynch streets, No. 2700. She
could not remember the balance of the
number, but told me I would find her ad
dress in her pocket-book. I asked her who

She declined telling me on account of the
affection and esteem nhe held for her mother
and the child. Sho disliked to have lier
mother and the child disgraced. She was
very fond of the child. I insisted on her
telling, and she then told me that Logan D.
Duneron was the father of the child. I asked
if tie hnd advise:! her to get this medicine.
She said "No." 1 asked her who did tell her?
She said a cook in Mi. D.tmaron's kitchen

tho day sho got the melic'.ne. The day. she
got it she passed tho house and saw me
at the window, and spoke to me. I sent for
her mother, aud told her mother what her
daughter had said, and some person asked
her, I don't, know who it was, if she didn't
wish to see Mr. Dameron. She said she did,
and her mother and sister went after Mr.
Dameron, but he did not come. I sent also
for Dr. Johnson to come, and her mother

Johnson and the c'aaplain didn't hear, she

Dr. Johnson repeated Mr. Datneron's name
again, but I don't know whether Mr.Wickers,
the chaplain, heard it or not. lie is a little

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 11.In view of the fact that
there is no abatement of yellow fever at New
Orleans, the health officers of this city have
decided to put the quarantine hospital ship in
the river fourteen miles below the citv in con
dition for occupation and keep acertain degre.
of surveillance npon steamers and trains
arriving from infected ports below. No
regular quarantine will be established, but
Dr. Davis, who has been placed in charge of the
quarantine hospital, will board all Bteamers
from the South, and if any passengers or crew
is found sick with infectious or contagious
disease, he will be taken ashore and treated at
the hospital. The Bame action will be taken in
regard to north bound trains on the St. Louis,
Iron Mountain & Southern railway, which
passes the quarantine station, and
Dr. Roberts, assistant physician
at quarantine, will board all up-bound trains
at a point below, and if he finds any one af
fected, as above stated, he will order him left
at the hospital. This arrangement has been
made with the full consent of railway nnd river
transportation companies, and orders have been
given for all steamers'and trains to Btop at
quarantine without any formal summons, this
surveillance to continue until the warm
weather ceases or the fever is fully
abated in the South, or as may seem proper by
the authorities. There it no apprehension
that yellow fever will come here, or should it
be brought here, that it can spread, and
these measures are taken solely to allay any
fear that may possibly arise should the disaster
become more general in the lower country.
The Knights of Labor Vote Against a

last week considered again the subject of a

early in August. The employes of the Phila

were almost unanimously opposed to the strike.
They stated that while wages were
not such as they ought to have,
they had been gradually increased
under the plan of making them participants in
the advance of tolls, that they had assurances
of steady work the balance of the year, and
preferred to let weil enough alone. A majority
were of this opinion and voted against the
strike. The Miners" Journal says the Lehigh i
operators determined to pay on the 1875 basis,
leaving no pretext for a strike.

THE WALLINOTOBD DI3ABTEB.
WALUsoyoBD, Conn., Aog. 11.No man
who has not looked npon the rain wrought
iu this place by the storm of Friday, can
conceive of the terrible force with which the
elements beat npon the plains of Walling
ford during the few moments it lasted. It
seemed to begin at the lake west of the
New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad,
and devastated the district east as far as
the Boston & New York Air Line road. Its
track was 400 yards wide, and it rained
everything in its path for a distance of two
miles. The incidents connected with the
are innumerable. A few hundred yards from
the lake was a poor cottage in which lived
Michael Mooney. His wife Mary and their
son Mictrael was in tbe village. With the
first puff of wind tbe woman attempted to
shut the windows. The boys assisted her,
but before they knew what had happened
the house was leveled to the earth, and the
fragments went flying through the air. Mrs.
Mooney was caught up and hurled along
through the branches" of the
trees, and over the telegraph
wire beyond the railroad, across two lanes,
a distance of nearly a quarter of a mile,
where she was flung down, battered and
bloody. The boys were blown through the
windows along with bricks, pots and pans.
Of the Mooney family bat one boy is left.
Matthew Mooney was carried 150 yards and
when picked up was almost beheaded.
Mrs. Joseph Huldie was completely
scalped and her body was found with the re
mains of one of her children clasped to her
Thomas Munson's four female relatives
ware buried in a cellar with the debris of the
house on top of them. It was feared they
were killed, but after an hour they were dug
oat with two of the women but slightly hurt.
It is a remarkable fact that every person
killed was a member of the Catholio church.
In one of the houses lived Mrs. Downs, a
middle-aged woman. She was whirled away
600 feet, and picked up dead and almost
A hay st&ek on John Lynch'a farm was

dropped upon the side of the hill. Barns

and carried incredible distances. Trees
were twisted, (not broken,) to splinters.
Besides these mentioned, possibly fifty houses
lost ohimney3 and roofs. The lightning
killed no one, and did but little damage, and
but one horse is known to have been killed.
The houses were mostly those of working
men, were cheap, and so it is estimated that
the damage will not exceed $150,000. Yes

people were present, and fully 2,000

Father Leo, of Winsted, assisted by three other
Catholic clergymen. The jam was immense,
and seemed one of great sadness. The ceme

National guards, and 120 special officers. The

afternoon. The cloud burst with
great suddenness, and a moment
after came a wind blowing seventy-five
miles an hour, and a cataract of water that
rained people flat and tried to drown them,
overturned wagons, uprooted trees, smashed
windows, carrying terror and destruction in
every direction for the first ten minutes, and
then there was a dead quiet. This was
broken only by mild showers during the
afternoon. Several buildings were blown
down, others unroofed, trees torn up and
windows damaged. Several sewers burst,

CHICAGO, Aug. 11.A horrible accident oc
curred on yesterday afternoon at 2:40 o'clock,
which, for ghastliness, surpasses anything that

15 years went to the planing mill of Winter,

Clark street, and applied for a day's work. He
stated he was familiar with the work about
such establishments, and seeming very earnest
he was given a job without any
questions being asked as to his name
or residence. He proved to be a very prompt
and efficient boy, and went through with the
first half day's work in good order. Yesterday
afternoon he was engaged in carrying lumber
from the placing machine to a place on the
outside of the building. The belting of the
machine and the piece of lumber he had npon
his shoulder become entangled and the boy was
pulled back upon the machine, and his head
coming in contact with the planer, revolving
with lightning speed, before anyone could
realize the predicament of the boy and before
he even had a chance to call
for help his hpad was completely sev

machine. Portions of bis clothing became

Stanton Marble's Letter.
[Speeial Telegram to the Globe.1
WASHINGTON, Aug. 11.The statement
in Mr. Manton Marble's history of the elec
toral contest is likely to make lively times
for him in case the Democratic members of
the Potter committee do their duty. In that
statement be declared thai if Mr. Tilden had
desired to compass the defeat of the Repub
lican conspiracy by the use of money,
that a few thousand dollars paid to such
persons as Wells and McLin, paid merely
for doing their duty, would have bursted the
whole atrocious conspiracy, and blown it
away like a puff ball in dust. Republicans
have een aware for some time that Mr.
Marble stands charged by authority of
gentlemen whose credibility will scarcely be
questioned by his fellow Democrats with
having formally suggested at a dinner party
of Democratic visitors in Florida, the pur
chase of McLin and Cowgill of the canvass
The statement was made at the time of
Minister Noyes' examination that a letter
from one of the Democrats present was in
existence giving the names of parties pres
ent at the time when the consultation was
held, and all the circumstances ct this at
tempt, to which Mr. Marble made himself a
party, to surprise the members of the board.
It was stated here,, as the Governor subse
quently declared in New York, that the sum
named was a large one, and that matters
progressed so far as to lead to a considera
tion of the best person to handle the money
and pay it over, and that a difference of
opinion in reard to this matter finally
caused the failure of the scheme.
The Star last evening makes the following
statement in"?egard to the origin and object
of Marble's article: "Manton Marble's let
ter, giving an account of the organization of
tbe electoral commission and attending
events as very favorable to Governor
Tilden, is regarded by the friends in this city
of Thurman and Bayard as designed to
break them down as Presidential candidates.
The opinion among shrewd politicians is
that the doenment was manipulated by Mr.
Tilden himself, who is uneasy at the grow
ing strength of Judge Thurman and em
ployed Marble's pen with the hope of killing
him off. In fact this opinion seems to be
entertained by Republican as well as by
Democratic politicians here."

they have been for the last twenty-five
years, the same old troubles from cattle
thieves and marauders whom the Mexican
government has not the power to suppress."
"What do you think of Diaz, General?"
"Widl, Diaz appears to be an able and well
meaning sort of a man. He seems to be anx
ious to preserve order on the border, but he
can't do it."
"Do you think we are in dan
ger of getting into war with Mexico?" "I
do not. Of course the Texans are anxious
to have the United States go to war with
Mexico. It would bethe making of Texas."
Gen. Sherman does not think even if there
should be a collision between Gen. Ord and
irresponsible Mexican thieves that it would
provoke a war with Mexico.
Views of a Prominent Kentuckian As to
the Standard-Bearer of the Democracy.

NEW YORK, Aug. 11.Dr. M.' D. Standeford,
of Louisville, ex-member of Congress. sayB in
an interview as to Natii nala Kentucky:
'"They are nothing. This last election just held
has whiped them out." Are the Democrats of
Kentucky anxious to support Samuel J. Tilden
in a second campaign? "No they don't be
lieve he can get tbe support of the Kentucky
delegation, much leas t^iat he carry the
State. Kentucky Democrats believe Tilden
was elected and m'ght have taken his seat if
he had shown proper.firmness, Mannm Marble's
letter to the c6ntrary notwithstanding.
Why didn't he make some statement over
his own signature, why didn't he eay this: '1
have been elected President of the United
States, and shall take my seat in the White
House if 1 am supported in my
right by the American people.' Kentucky
Democrats do not beiieve that Tilden can be
elected, and they don't want him. Hendericks
is not more popular in Kentucky than Tilden.
I can't say what support Mr. Thurman would
receive. I think we would prefer a Northern
man of conservative views, and who favored
honest gold and silver."

SAN FBANCISCO, Aug. 11.A "Victoria dispatch
Bays parliament has passed the Chinese tax
bill. The discussion was acrimonious. Both
sides admit the necessity of tbe tax, but differ
as to the mode of collecting ft and the amount.*
The government proposed $60 per annum, but
being strongly opposed have reduced the rate
to 40. The Colonist, an anti-Chinese paper,
declares the bill will make the province a
langhing stock throughout Christendom, be
cause of its absurd provisions, and charges
that it was drawn by heavy employers of
Chinese labor to insure its disallowance at Ot

insincerity and bad faith.

Bob Ingersoll leaned against the rail of

contemplating the hurly-burly of prepara

carelessly pushed back from his forehead.

"I shall not lecture," he said, "in Europe.
Most of our time will be spent in Scatland,
for I go to Europe principally to inquire
into the life of Robert Burns. I regard him
as second only to Shakespeare in poetry.
Shakespeare was the palace, but be was the
cottage of poetry, and the
houses between^: were^i not worth
much. Then Burns was probably the stout
est enemy that Calvinism ever had. His
Holy Willie's Prayer' is the best argument
against Calvanism. I don't like Calvinism
it is hide-bound and a deal less attractive
than Catholocism, which it was designed to
supersede. Catholocism is willing to let
you have a good time here below if you pay
for it but Galvanism is not, whether you
pay or not. The pithiest opinion that was
ever expressed of Puritanism is attributed to
Macaulay, when he said that the Puritans
objected to ball-baiting, not because it was
cruelty to the bulls, but because the spec
tators liked it. Now, 1 believe in enjoying
this lifa reasonably, according to the
means at my disposal, and I don't
tak stock in any creed that keeps
us worrying about what is beyond.
No one can know what is to come afterward.
Why, it would be just as reasonable for me
to worry myself about the future state as it
would be for me to rush ashore, lay in a
heavy stock of tales about appal ing ship
wrecks and the suffering of shipwrecked men
while clinging for their lives to spars and
hencoops, aud lose all the enjoyment that I
expect to derive from the voyage in reading
them. This is a sound and trim ship, and
there's plenty of beer aboardthough, by
the way, the only beverages that I enjoy are
chanpagne and claretand I doa't propose
to make myself miserable. I intend to learn
German, aud to be able to ask for whatever
I want when I land. Oh! yes, we intend to
visit the Exposition.
"D'rom Paris we will probably go direct to
Ayr, Burns' b.rthplace. I shall endeavor to
find as many of the oldest inhabitants as
possible. I may not be able to find out a
great deal about him that is new, yet I may
obtain new light upon parts of his history
that will double their interest. Yes. I in
tend to lecture on Burns next winter. I
think that he is in some quarters underrated,
becaise he did not have what is called a
gher education. Now, my estimation of a
higLer education is, that, excepting in rare
cases, it crowds oat whatever natural genius
a man may be born with."
"Will you make any more speeches in the
political field, Colonel, when you return?"
"I cannot say positively now whether I will
or not. The party that is to carry the coun
try in the future must do something for the
workingmen. Their need is the vital de
mand of the hour. I think that a govern
ment of the United States that cannot assure
every industrious man a house of three or
four rooms, a wife and three or four chil
dren, and plenty of food, clothing and fuel,
when we have millions upon millions of
fuel, when we have millions upon millions of
acres of land to yield food and articles of
exchange with Europe, has no right to exist."
"Would you stump for Grant?''
"I don't believe that Grant will be the
nominee of the Republican party for 1880.
Hayes has made some people think of Grant
favorably as compared with himself. Grant
is "the man on horseback, who rode before
the man on crutches." HayeB, through his
weakness, has been Grant's best friend.. I
think that Blaine will he the strongest Re

and enemies and send them away with a
clear understanding of how ho stands to
Settltna Up Jay Cooky's Affairs.
A telegram from Philadelphia, Aug. 8th,
says: The committee of the creditors of the
Jay Cooke & Co. estate are preparing to take
the wind out of the bill in equity that Mr.
Hazelhurst has given notioe of. In this bill,
that is under-tood to be fathered by a very
small proportion of the creditors, it is
charged that the estate has been wasted and
misappropriated, and in the items of waste
are mentioned all the lawyers fees, and all
the salaries of any kind whatever. The bill
asks that the estate be put back into the con
trol of the bankrupt court, from which it
was taken, by the appointment of a trustee
and a committee of creditors to act with him.
Meantime the trustee is sending out his
scheme for the adoption of the creditors,
and has already received many answers of
As soon as this is out of the way, he will
begin to pay another dividend of 5 per eent
in cash, and will alsj make a distribution of
the stack of the St. Paul & Duluth railroad,
which is the reorganization of the Lake Su
perior & Mississippi. This will be to tbe
amount of about 17 per cent, of the tota
claims. This will make a total of per
cent., as follows: 5 per cent, cash and 25 per i
cent, in Northern Pacific, and now 5 per
cent, more in cash and 17 in stock. After
this it is expected that there will be enough
to pay another and final dividend of about 4
or 5 per cent. Mr. Cooke, however, who has
aided the committee in every way that he
could, firmly believes that the total dividend
will reach 60 per cent.

CROPS IN MINNESOTA.
Blue Earth City Post, Aug. 10*_ All farm
ers who come to this office report their crops
badly damaged, and hardly worth cutting.
Tbe yield will not exceed ten bushels per
Swift County Advocate, Aug. 9: The wheat
crop in this county will fall short of the es
timate made three weeks ago, at least 50
per cent. Yet the farmers feel pretty well,
for they think the price will be good.
Glenwood Eagle. Aug. 2: The harvest ia
progressing favorably, although wheat has
been considerably damaged with smut, rust
and blight. The yield, if the crop is proper
ly secured, will be above the average. Har
vest hands are scarce.
Freeborn County Standard, Aug. 8: The
present week will about finish the cutting of
wheat in this county. The yield will not be
over eight bushels per acre, and possibly not
more than six, of poor wheat, very little of
which will grade as high as No. 2.
Le Roy Independent, Aug. 10: Wkeat in
the north part of the county is being cut
largely with cradles this season, the severe
rains accompanied by winds having lodged
a considerable quantity of it so that it is im
possible to cut it with harvesters.
Cannon Falls Beacon, Aug. 9: From the
most reliablo information we can gather
from farmers, we fear that tho wheat yield
hereabouts will be No. 2 at best. Not over
one-half the number of bushels raised last
year will be produced this eeason in th'.s vi
Anoka Union, Aug. 10: James McCann
brought the first new wheat to the flouring
mill last week Friday, the amount being GOO
bushels, all No. 1. for which he received 90
cents a bushel. One of the fields averaged
twenty bushels to the acre and the other
Dundas (Rice Co.) New, Aug. 10: The
best wheat is found on the poorest soil
this year. There will be little No. 1 wheat
in this vicinity, and our millers say it will be
difficult to secure any fit to make into flour.
This is a bad state of things, but we must
make the best of it.
Granite Falls Journal, Aug. 8: The wheat
here is better than is generally reported, al
though grain that was not cut before the last
heavy raio is shrunken and discolored. Our
farmers need not feel too much the loss of
one-third of their grain, as with their losses
the price of wheat will correspondingly in
Albert Lea Enterprise, Aug. 8: The
reports from all parts of tbe couniy are not
very flattering for half a crop of wheat.
Most all we have talked with say tbe yield
will not be more than four or eight bushels
to the acre, on an average. This is rather
discouraging, but the truth will soon be
known when the threshing machines start
Morris (Stevens county) Tribune, Aug. 8:
New wheat is coming in. What we have
seen is very light, and only t'-sts fifty-five
and a half pounds par bushel. The first
wheat threshed and marketed in this county
this season was from the farm of Hon. J. C.
McCarthy. One hundred and twenty-one
bushels were measui ed at the machine, the
result of one hour's work.
Wilmar Republican-Gazette, Aug. 8: Har
vesting in the county is probably a little
more than half done. It is impossible at this
time to give anything like a correct estimato
of the yield, but it will not be likely to run
much above an average of fifteen buehels to
the acre for the whole county, and much of
this will grade No. 2 and No. 3. The best
wheat is in the northeastern towns, and tho
next best in tho northwestern towns, and
the poorest in the southwestern towns.
bauk Centre Herald, Aug. 9: We noticed
several good citizens wending their way to
the harvest field last Sunday morning. Ne
cessity knows no law. A large amount of
grain will be lost in this section in conse
quence of the scarcity of harvest hands and
the lodced condition of the grain. Anton
ScbaflVr is one of the unlucky farmers this
year. He has a seventy-five acre field of
Lost Notion wheat which is so tangled, rust
ed and smutted that he concluded it would
not pay to cut it.
Goodhue County Republican, Aug. 8: A
hard day's drive through six townships of
this county gave us an opportunity to exam
ine the wheat crop quite particularly. We
shall not exceed one-third of an average
crop, and that of an inferior quality, No. 3
and rejected. This, when our prospects
were so bright, wi 1 prove a great disappoint
ment, not only to tbe armers, but to all our
people. Bui as no human power caust or
could avoid the calamity, we muht accept the
situation with an good grace as possible.
Rochester Record and, Union, Aug. 9:
The opinion is expressed that wheat will
not be over half a crop, and a portion of
that unsalable. There is apprehension that
much of the wheat will not be fit for either
flour or feed. Mr. Bamber relates his ex
perience with winter wheat in Ohio, where,
one wet season, several years since, the
grain was blighted and turned red at one
end, making what wns known as "sick
wheat." He says his hogs refused to touch
the bran a second time, and the flour was
worthless. There is probably very little
wheat in Southern Minnesota that was not
more or less injured by the scalding hot
Sherburne Connty Star, Aog. 9: From
presen: indications there are very few, if
any, counties in the State that will have a
better crop of wheat this year than old Sher
burne cennty. And still there are lots of
people who think the soil in Sherburne
county is too light and sandy to raise any
thing on. The largest corn field in the State
i of Minnesota is in Sherburn county and con
tains 600 acres. It is close by Becker fetation,
nnd in plain sight ot passengers on tbe St.
Paul & Pacific railroad, and is the property
of Major A. M. Fridley and H. 0. Fiidley,
his son. Eastern petite, make a note of
