for some time been feeling the effects of
the disturbed state of the country, are
beginning to exhibit signs of great era
barrassment, but agitation, which is par
alyzing trade and putting capital to
flight, and poisoning commercial life,
•till extends its deadly influence, while
sufferers look on its progress in helpless
dismay. The efforts of the laud league
arc now chiefly directed toward the north
of Ireland. There can be little doubt it
has succeeded considerably when mostly
all districts are honeycombed with its or
ganizations. Exertions of agitators are
also directed towards the county of
Dublin and borders of Dublin itself. Mala

second demonstration Sunday, but there
was no reason to boast of its success.

RUMORED ASSASSINATION OF DERVISH
London, Dec. 27.—A dispatch from
Constantinople says it is rumored that
Dervish Pasha, governor of Albania, has
been assassinated,which seems to confirm
rumors that a meeting of the Albanian
league had condemned him to death. As
none of the foreign embassies here have
received any news on the subject it
is highly probable that the rumors are
unfounded. But the fact that they are
current among the Albanians in Con
stantinople, some of whom are in direct
communication with the league proves
that the relations between the league,and
Pasha arc far from cordial and gives a
view of importance. There is a great
deal of smouldering discontent between
the north Albanian chiefs which might
early produce sedition. °
HE SEEMS TO BE ALIVE.
Constantinople, Dec. 27—The Der
vish Pasha government of Albania has
arrested more Albanians. The porte is
still considering the circular to be sent
the powers to prevent them from request
ing the porte to accept arbitration of the
Greek question. It will propose a new
conference of which the porte is discus
sing the basis.
A Guud Deal of It Scattered All Over
the Country—Suffering In Various Places.
In view of the -cold snap" it is almost
appropriate to make a local item on so
trite a subject as the weather. Sunday's
snow storm closed with a let down in
temperature, and yesterday morning ther
mometers registered from 25 to 28 degrees
below zero. All day the cold was severe,
and at this writing, 2:30 a. m., the mer
cury slioavs 25 below zero with the chances
that it may tip the beam at a few degrees
lower before daylight doth appear.
The cold wave appears to be running
over the entire country and the suffering
East and South is far greater than in
New Yokk, Dec. 27—At Coney island
the sea swept away the plaza of the
Oriental hotel and carried off about 200
feet of bulkhead at the Manhattan Beach
hotel. The iron piers remain but some
of the outlying bath houses are smashed
into kindling wood. Damage, $100,000.
The storm on the New Jersey coast
raged for seventy-two hours. Summer
residences at Monmouth beach were dam
aged to the extent of $40,000.
The roads about Long Branch arc
blockaded by snow, some drifts being ten
feet deep. Bluff bulkheads and porticos
of hotels carried away.
Red Bank, N. J., Dec. 27—Two men
lost their lives during the snow storm in
Chicago, Dec. 27.—The cold wave
which struck here early this morning
and Manitoba yesterday, sending" 4 mercury
to forty degrees below,* has been growing
in intensity all day. Although the sun
shone brightly to-cfay for the first time in
a fortnight, at midnight the thermometer
registers thirteen degrees below, and at
present rate will reach twenty below be
fore morning. It is by far the coldest
spell of the season, but an absence of
wind and clear sky make it less trying
than •weather "which is not so severe.

received from points west and north
show that the weather is generally colder
there than in Chicago. In many places
the thermometer marked fourteen to

Louisville, Dec. 27.—The temperature
here has been falling rapidly all day, and
at midnight is at eight degrees and still

degrees of temperature lias occurred in
the past 24 hours.
St. Louis, Dec. 27.—This has been one
of the coldest days of the season. Mer

THE PONCA INDIANS.
They Interview Secretary Schurz and State
Their Wishes in Writing.
Washington, Dec. 27—The Ponca In
dian chiefs to-day had another long inter
view with Secretary Schurz at the interi
or department. Standing Buffalo and
White Eagle were the principal spokes
men, and in making known their wants
seemed anxious about school houses and
educational facilities for children.
Secretary Schurz informed them that
school houses were now being built and
would be pushed to completion as rapidly
as possible. He also informed them h"e
hoped the pending Indian sevcralty bill
would be passed during the present ses
sion of Congress, and that as soon as it
became a law each one of them would be
given a farm title which would be as val
id as that of the white man's.
At the cor"-'vision, and after explana
tions by St /fttary Schurz, ten chiefs
signed the paper they had requested to
be drawn up, in which they declared
they desired to remain on tho lands now
occupied by the Poncas in Indian Terri
tory, and to establish permanent homes
there. They also express their willing
ness to relinquish all their right and in
terest in all lands formerly occupied by
the Ponca tribe, in the State of Nebras
ka, and Territory of Dakota, in compen
sation for land as well as for property
at the time of their removal to the Indian
Territory in 1877, and for depredations
committed on them by the Sioux. They
ask Congress to appropriate the sum of
8148,000, same sum asked for in bill sub
mitted by Interior department two years
After enumerating some purposes for
which they desire to have this sum ex
pended and invested the paper closes
as follows: "We declare this to be an ex
pression of our free will and desire as well
as that of our peopte at present residing
on the Ponca rcservatian in the Indian
Territory, and we ask that this declara
tion and request be submitted to Congress
of the United States for its favorable con
sideration and action."
The paper bears the signature of the
Ponca chiefs. The chiefs' three spokes
men to-day reiterated that they had con
cluded to take this action not upon their
own motion, but upon full consultation
with all members of the tribe, in the
Indian Territory,and now wanted to go to
work and be left undisturbed by outside

One Passenger Burned Alive.
SUMMAUV LYNCHING IN PENNSYLVANIA.
Allentown, Pa., Dec 27—Jacob
Gogel and wife, residing four miles from
Bethlehem, were found dead in bed this
forenoon, their heads completely severed
from their bodies. A blood3 r axe w ras
found in the house, and the walls were
spattered with blood. Joseph Snyder,
who boards with Gogel, was supposed to
be the murderer. He was caught by a
mob soon after discovery of the crime
and hanged to the nearest tree. Gogel
leaves three children.
Joseph Snyder, nged 24, the murderer
of Jacob and Anna Gogel, was found in
a neighboring barn, under the straw,
at 9 o'clock this forenoon. He was im
mediately taken back to the house of his
victims and questioned as to
the murder. He was cool and
collected. He was interrogated by Rev.
Mr. Brendle, of Bethlehem, and at once
confessed he committed the crime, telling
his story with great deliberation. He
warf in love with the eldest daughter of
Gogel, aged 16, but was opposed by her
parents. He believed by killing them all
opposition would be removed to his suit.
He had scarcely confessed before a rope,
taken from one of the beds, was placed
around his neck and he was dragged out
side the house and hung to a large chest
nut tree. After being suspended twenty
minutes the body was cut down by the
poorhouse authorities and taken to that
institution, where it was found death was
caused by strangulation. The officers of
the law made a vain endeavor to restrain
the fury of the mob, Detective Yoke, of
Bethlehem, firing at one of the ring
leaders without effect. Several thousand
people visited the scene of the tragedy
during the day.
Charlotte, N. C, Dec. 27. —A fright
ful railroad disaster occurred this morn
ing on the air line railroad, five hundred
yards beyond Paw Creek trestle, nine
miles from this city. Two freight trains
left Charlotte yesterday morning in sec

the other. On an up grade, just beyond
Paw Creek trestle, fourteen car 3of the
forward train broke loose and stopped af

car were flagman Bob Griffith, of this
city, and six passengers, three of which
were colored. Though a flagman was sent
back, the rear section being on a down
grade, could not stop, and ran into the
other train. Three passengers were kill

First Methodist Church Lyceum.
The lyceum and literary club, of the
First Methodist Episcopal church, gave
another of their charming entertainments
last evening, to a large and appreciative
audience. _ The exercises consisted of
vocal and instrumental music, readings,
declamations and original essays. The
literary efforts showed thoughtful care
in preparation, and each selec
tion was greeted with applause.
The audience were afforded a rare treat
in the presence of Miss Aggie Green, the
beautiful and accomplished elocutionist,
who demonstrated her powers by the ren
dition of several selections, the effect be
ing almost electric.
A. feature of the programme was a
clarionet solo, performed in artistic style
by A. P. Wilkes, Esq., who tunefully
manipulated this most difficult instru

shown to fine effect.

Death of This Eminent Divine—Sketch of
; His Life.
New Yokk,! Dec. 27.—The Rev. Dr.
ElmiraH. Chapin; died yesterday. His
friends have known for some time that
there were no hopes of his ' recovery, but
the intelligence of his death will be re
ceived with regret. Dr. Chapin was
born at Union village, Washington coun
ty, on the 29 th of December, 1814. His
parents were natives of New England. \
While he was in his boyhood they re- j
moved to Bennington, Vt. He received
an academic education at Bennington
seminary and then returned to this State,
beginning to study for the bar in a law
yer's office in Troy. Without complet
ing his legal studies he soon removed to
Utica, where he became assistant editor
of the Magazine and Advocate, then a
leading journal of the Univer6alist de
nomination. In 1834, when 23 years of
age, he was ordained in Utica to the Uni
versalist ministry. He immediately be
gan preaching and accepted a call to be
come pastor of an Independent Christian
church at Richmond, Va., a society com
posed both of Universalists and Unitari
ans. In 1840 he accepted the charge of a
Universalist church at Charlestown,,
Mass. Six years later he accepted a call
from School street Universalist church,
Boston, becoming a colleague of Hosea
Bollon. In 1848 Dr. Chapin came to this
city to assume the pastorate of the Fourth
Universalist society, which he has ever
since retained. Among his friends and
parishioners was Horace Greely, whose
funeral services took place from his
church. Dr. Chapin leaves a wife, two
sons and a daughter.
For the last four years Dr. Chapin has
complained of fatigue which no amount
of rest seemed to relieve. Frequent trips
to Europe failed to do him good, and in
fact unless surrounded by friends during
foreign trips he was apt to become home
sick and worry constantly until he could
return,'yet such was his indomitable will
visible in every look and movement
even when ill that he would not allow the
trustees of his church to engage an assist
ant until recently, when it became evi
dent he would not be able to preach
again. Although troubled with asthma
and dyspepsia it cannot be said he had
contracted ayiy particular disease. His
mind remained clear during the last four
years of suffering the only indication of
waning mental powers being his constant
nervousness and worry about trifling
matters. One of his parishioners who
knew him intimately, said Dr. Chapin
fretted himself first into illness and then
death. Although the affairs of his church
were in the most prosperous condition,
the congregation being largely composed
of men of wealth, he worried lest its
members would be discontented on ac
count of his frequent absence, and if he
noticed any prominent members of the
church were not regularly in their pews,
ho would attribute their absence to his
own shortcomings and make himself
miserable. Dr. Chapin's last sermon in his
Church of Divine Paternity was on Palm
Sunday last year. On that day it was
feared he would not be able to finish ser
vice. He went to Europe last summer
but came back no better, imagining from
the fact that he met no familiar faces in
Switzerland, that his friends were desert
ing him. He left the house but seldom
this autumn, and then only for a short
drive with' his nurse. Two weeks ago
he went out for the last time. He con
tinued until yesterday to walk about the
house, and had no thought, apparently,
that his end was so near. He was very
sensitive about what friends said to him
concerning his appearance. He asked
each person to tell himj^iow he looked,
and if the reply was not favorable, he
would remain despondent for hours.

To-yiyht Frank Mayo an Van, The Vlr
The lapse of a few weeks in theatrical
entertainments in this city, and the reap
pearance, after an absence of several
years, of an old St. Paul favorite, Mr.
Frank Mayo, for a two nights' engage
ment, will undoubtedly draw out a large
audience. "Van, the Virginian," one
of Bartley Campbell's- most* successful
dramas, has not been seen at the Opera

To the Editor of the Globe.
Let me thank you for the above notice
referring to me in such flattering terms,
and in return please accept my picture at
the head of this note as a Christmas gift.
But—-(I said but once to a man who was
smoking a short cigar and got a rap in
the but) I am not the only " Guarantee of
the Excellence" of "An Arabian Night."
Augustin Daly wrote it, arid Roland Reed
delineates it. And you can take my
word (for what it is worth) that it is the
funniest thing you ever witnessed. Sev
eral old maids have become ruptured by
laughing at it, and in nine cases out of
ten it will remove freckles. It is the
"Dandy" comedy of the day. . I enclose
you 100,000,000 press notices,whicl^please
allow to climb the golden basket. Can
you ask for more ? Thine with a sore
thumb. Claude De Haven.

THE GLOBE HOROSCOPE.
As it Casts its Light on the Chicago
Markets—A Big Failure.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, Dec. 27.—Pretty nice feather in my
cap. As the market has acted to-day the tone
is completely changed. Cables were not taken
much notice of, while the general trading has
changed from 6elling to buying. Friday we
closed 94> 4 c February wheat and to-night
98 c. This advance was gained by steady,
slow progress all day long, no jump and fiz
zling round the corner, no straight, steady de
mand from outsiders especially and shorts
feeling uncomfortable because during all day
never at a time there was much for sale. It is
just the kind of a market to get a nice score
up for the shorts, a 6 there arc big lines out.
Corn and oats followed wheat,
ft Provisions firm and improved some. A good
many 6horts wont have just as happy a New
Years as they had a merry Christmas.

Alilwaukee, Dec. 27.—The failure of the
grain commission firm known as the Wm. P.
McLaren & Co., is the sensation of the day
here. The house has a branch at Chicago
managed by the Messrs. Rice. Speculations
by the latter caused the failure. The amount
is about $100,000. The firm was a stock
company, and the failure does not affect the
large private fortuue of Wm. P. McLaren, of
this city, and ho continues the business here.
The wheat market enjoyed a boom to-day,
jumping from 94c for January iv the forenoon
to Otj^'c at the late board, and closed at 98c.

KEEP IN YOUR PLACES.
Constitutionality of the Hack Ordinance
Affirmed by the Supreme Court.
Some little time ago, Frank Smith, a
hackman, was taken before the munici
pal court and fined for refusing to keep
in the place assigned him by the police
about the railroad depots, such assign
ment being made under the provisions of
the ordinance regulating, the hack service
in the city. Smith appealed from the
decision of the municipal court judge
and had the case transferred to the State
supreme court upon a writ of cerliorari.
Yesterday the court filed its decision
affirming the finding of the municipal
court, and declaring the ordinances under
which Smith was arrested and fined au
thorized by the city charter. The main
points in the decision of the court is
found in the following syllabus of the
The City of Bt. Paul, respondent, vs. Frank
The charter of the city of St. Paul authorizes
the common council by ordinances "to regu
late at a, reasonable rate to license hacks,
carts, omnibuses, trucks, wagons, and other
vehicles engaged in hauling or carrying for
hire, and the charges of the drivers of 6uch
Held, That the following ordinances are
authorized by this provision of the charter,
viz: Ordinance No. 107, which provides "that
hackmau * * * when at or about any
railroad depot or station * * shall obey
the commands and directions of the police
officer or officers who may be stationed or do
ing duty at or about such depot or station * *
for the preservation of order and enforcement
of ordinances." And ordinance No. 133, which
provides that "no owner or driver of any * *
hack * * shall make any stand or stopping
place, with or without hi 6 vehicle, while wait
ing for employment at any place, on any street
or public ground adjacent to any railroad or
railway depot * * except in the place or places
designated by the police officer on duty from
time to time at such railway depot or station."
Held, that the ordinances are regulations of
hacks, and not unreasonable or offensive;
also, that ordinance No. 233 authorized the
assigning of a particular place to each hack
man. Also, that the fact that the ground
above the depot or station where these ordi
nances are to be enforced is not the property
of the city, or public property of any kind,
strictly speaking, is not important. The fact
that it is commonly used by hackmcu for the
purpose mentioned in the ordinances is suffi

The Chicago, Milwaukee & St Paul
railway announces a slight change in the
running of its St. Paul and Minneapolis
trains, via Fort Knelling, the time for the
4:00 p. m. train leaving here being 4:45 at
Minneapolis, a reduction of five minutes,
and that of the train leaving Minneapolis
heretofore 4:20 being changed to 4:10.
The officials and their corps of assist
ants in the general offices of the St. Paul
& Duluth road, were all broke up yester
day—the cause being found in the fact
that the work of transferring themselves
and official effects to their elegant new
quarters, in Dawson's block, southeast
corner of Wacouta and Fourth streets
was in progress. At nightfall more of
the effects had been removed to the new
location, where some little order had been
evolved out of the general chaos incident
to such an occurrence, but it will be a
day or two, at least, before everything
will be gotten in shape, or the gentle
men will have recovered their usual
serenity and affability. Any one ever
having taken a hand at moving knows
how it is himself.

Sunday's fall of snow, followed toward
night by high wind and extreme cold, re
sulted as was to be expected in giving all
the railroads trouble, though nearly all
were in better condition yesterday than
was anticipated. The fall of snow -was
heaviest to the south and west of St. Paul,
the storm extending beyond the boundar
ies of the State in both directions, the fall
of snow amounting to five or six inches
in depth. North of St. Paul the volume of
the snow fall gradually decreased,
only two to three inches being reported
in northern Minnesota, with but little
more than one inch along the line of the
Northern Pacific in Dakota. The cold
Sunday night was intense all over the
State, 40 degrees below being reported
from the western end of the Southern
Minnesota and the western end of the
Hastings & Dakota, 30 degrees below at
St. James, on the St. Paul & Sioux City;
27 below at Little Falls; 30 degrees at
Wadena and 27 degrees at Casselton, on
the Northern Pacific; and 39 degrees be

The storm extended along the entire
line of the Sioux City division of the C,
St. P. & O. road, the wind reaching quite
a blizzard toward nightfall, and the trains,
including the express from Omaha, were
suspended for the night, the latter lying
over at Sioux City. Yesterday morning
all trains were resumed and all were re
ported last night as having made fair
time, and no further trouble is anticipa
ted. Trains on the Eastern division of
the line were delayed a little by the se
vere cold, trains from Chicago arriving
here from an hour and a half to two
No trouble from snow was experienced
on the Eastern division of the Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul road, on its
Minnesota and lowa division; though
delayed by the cold, passengers, however,
arriving nearly on time. On the Hast
ings and Dakota division, trains west of
Glencoe were suspended for the day,
trains to Glencoe getting through with
little trouble. Reports received here
from points along the line west of Glen
coe, say the cuts are not badly filled, and
the company hope to be able to open the
road to-day. It was reported that trains
on the western end of the Southern Min
nesota division of this road had been
abandoned, but the extent of the trouble
could not be learned.
The St. Paul & Duluth suffered no
trouble from snow and but little from
cold, trains running nearly on time.
The St. Paul & Manitoba and Northern
Pacific roads had little trouble, the snow
being light along their lines, though some
time was lost by the cold.
All in all, the Minnesota railroads es
caped more luckily than did Eastern lines.
