, at tho request of tho Commissioners of Ac
fi counts, subpanaed sixteen witnesses, and

' his client had uiadu bomo inaccuiato stato-

correct. Tho witness said :
" I uoor paid to any city official any
'" remount of inmiov for the ohauco iu tho locu-

lo Mould bo worth !10() to mo to have tho loca-

ol- " Mr. Joseph Carson hoard mo say it and
' remarked that ho thought ho could fix tho
to matter for me. Ho accompanied mo before
ml Jlr. McAdiun when I mivlo application to
b clmnge tho location of my stand. When I
went again my application was granted.
iej "I afterward gavo Mr. Carson S75. I
ow didn't givo him $100 hecauso ho said, I
at tbiuk, that Mr. Corson Biid that S75 was
enough. I iriado a chook for tho amount,
i got it cashed and cavo him tho mouoy.

"bnodlor."
i, This word had bcon writton thero by his
. bookkeeper, oud was diseovorod by tho wit-
Hubs two days later. He said :
" " I told Uuvidson ho was a d d fool to

concluded,
Mr. 8. J. Smith, of 21 Tork How, was on
other passougor who had a thrilling talo to
I relate.
" Tho accident just robbed ovorybody of
their sense, " ho said to tho reporter.
' Why, I saw o man jump off tho train and
pick nn a burniug rag like a fool.
"Others jumned up and down in tho most
foolish nnd ridiculous manner. "
" What causod tho explosion ?" asked tho
reporter.
" Of course. I could not tell positively, but
I think it wan a premature blast that was not
properly handled. I would have cot off tho
triiu at Fordham to notify tho police of tho
occurrence, but another gentleman did so,
" A moro indignant sot of passougors I

concluded.
Other passongors related incidents of n
woman who in her fright clasped her travel
ling satchel to her breast and carried her
baby out of tho train by tho skirts.
I'ark Commissioner Stovcns m Towlo, who
was a vassenccr on the train, gavo an Kven
ino Woiild reporter tho following account
of the explosion:
"A torriflo concussion jarred tho train.
People foil from their soats from the shock.
Many faintod, as many men it seemed, as
women. Others were affected just as In sea.
sicknoss. Women shrieked and the greatest
confusion and excitomont reigned for a timo.
" All tho windows, ventilators and tho
stained glass wero actually blown away, and
tho window frames left as clean as if they had
nover held any glass.
" This happened on every car but tho last.
Tho train consisted of eight passenger
coaches and a bnggao car.
" As far as I hae learned, no death has yet
resulted, though tho shock to tho nervous
syBtcm of many of tho women was somothing
very f right! ul.
" All that haved tho train from being blown
from tho track was tho lapid rate at which
wo wero going.
' ' Tho violenco of the concussion was so
creat that tho gloss was shattorod into infin
itesimal particles, like sand. Tho explosion
was to tho right of the tra u, and actually tno
fine pieces of glass woro blown through from
tho right sine of the train out of tho ahiverod
windowB of the left.
" Tho reason tho passengers wero not cut
moro severely is owing to tliepowdory condi
tion to which tho glass was reduced. Many
persons were, howovor, cut badly.
" Whethor tho explosion was caused by
blasting or from stored dynamite set off by
tho jarring of the passing train could not bo
ascertained.
" Tho train stopped and backod to the
scene of tho explosion. Not a soul could bo
found in the vicinity.
" The passengers suffered greatly coming

THE UNEXPLAINED MYSTEBV OF THE lilt.
'Hang! Hang!"
Tho bound of two rovolver ' shots was
heard. A cow crossing n field fifty paces
u Rway rocoived a bullet in tho spino.
That cow was an innocent victim. Liko
lfi Fpec'itors at a riot sho had farod worso than
uj, tbo ooiubatauts.
fg Tho contendinc adversaries were un-
C. louched.
jj Who wero those adversaries ?
jy All that could bo gathered from their op-
pearanco was that tho elder was an English.
h "nn and the younger an Amoiicau. The
l'arty wero on tho Canadian side of the
lib Niagara Itiver, about three miles bolow tbo
ty lalls nnd not far from tho bridgo which
nmteu tho opposite Bhoros.
I'ho Huglibhmau crossed ovor to tho Amer
ican. '"I still maintain that it was ' Bulo Britan-
a Hift. '" said ho.
I. "It was 'Y'ankco Doodlo,'" repliod tho
c cUicr.
It To quarrol was about to commence again,
Nvlitu ono of tho becouds interposed, saying:
'" Lot us put it ' Kulo Doodlo ' and ' Yon
kao llritauuia,' and go to breakfast." This
lompromiao bctwoeu tho national airs of
America mid Groat Britain was adoptod, to
rt tho gcuoral satisfaction of all concerned, and
Arucncmin nnd English crossed tho bridge
ul aml v. ore soon seated in tho dining-room of
Hie hotol. Thoro, surroundod with the tra
ditional ham and eggs, cold roost boof, iu
condmry i)icklo8 and Hoods of tea which
iallod tho colobratod catnract, they ceased
for a time to disputo on a subjuct in regard to
Ue vI'eU they still differed.
ifj Who waB right tho Englishman or the
Ameiicanl1 It would prove a difficult matter
I
for any one to decldo this question. But at
all events the duol showed a phaso of tho
oxcitement that was existing not only on the
new, but on tho old continent as well, con
cerning un inexplicable phenomenon which
during tho month past has baffled oil attoinpts
at explanation.
Never since the appearance of man on tho
terrestrial globe had tho heavens been ho
closely scanned.
On the night preceding the encounter just
recorded the notes of an aerial trumpet had
bounded ovor that portion of Canada situated
between Lake Ontario and Lake Krio. Bomo
of the inhabitants had hoard " Yankee Doo
dle " and the others " Rulo Britannia," and
from this had arisen the Anglo-American
quarrel which had just ended in the break
fast at Qoat Island.
Perhaps it had bcon neither of theso patri
otic airs, but it was undoubtedly the noto of
a trumpet, and possessed a striking regularity
from the fact that tho sound camo from tho
sky towards tho onrth.
Could it possibly have been a celestial
trumpet sounded by an angel or an arch
angel, or was it a party of happy aeronauts
who oniusod themselves by blowing sonorous
blasts over tho wondering world '
No, it was neither angel nor aeronaut. An
extraordinary phenomenon was being pro
duced in the highest zones of tho sky, a phe
nomenon whose origin and naturo had baffled
every one.
To-day it nppcarod over America, forty,
eight hours later over Europo, eight days
lator in Asia, above the Celestial Empire. If
thlB trumpeter, so loudly sounding his rapid
flight, was not tho announcer of the day of
jddgmont, who, than, was he ? At this timo

A morning paper stated yostorday that Pres

Union, is authority for tho statcmont that tho
Unlou w ill soon issuo tho following resolution:
llcfiilieil, That any amateur athlete competing
in the names of the linivc! ulty of PcnimTlvanta,
to be held In the Academy of Muaio on Saturday
evening, Feb. '.'3, will bo it!nqualtucd and de
barred from competing iu any future games held
under tlio rulex of tho Amateur Athletic Union.
Thoro docs not oppoai to bo any cause for
passing this resolution and it is doubtful if
such a resolution will bo adoptod by tho
Union. Tho University of Pennsylvania
will givo Mb gomes under tho rulos of tho
Iiitercollogiato Association, a member of
tho National Association of Amateur Ath
letes of America, tho Union's mal, at
prosont, aud this is virtually giving tho
games under tho Association laws. Accord
ing to tho rules of tho A. A. U., if any ath
lete competes under tho N. four A. laws, ho
is already barrod out of tbo Union's gamos,
mid as this Is pretty well understood among
tho utilities, tho passing of tho aboio reso
lution would bo usoless. In tho roccnt
guiues of tho Union, given in Mnlison Square
Gurilen, nu athletes who had competed under
N. lour A. lulosftinco tho Union passed its
boycott resolution were allowed to outer, and
so it btunds now. Tho Union claims
that tho lntercollegiato Association has no
right to gho open games under anything ox
copl Union rules and in tho phaso of the ath
loticwar, which will bo developed in tho
noxt few weeks, tho colleges will be mado
conspicuous which over way they go with
tho uulou or against it. Tho Association's
coming games create a groat demand for ath
lotes, and htronuous ellorts will bo made to

at a distance of thrco hundrod million leagues,
wero unable to oxplaiu the origin of a cosmic
phenomenon within tho radius of a few miles
of what use were astronomers?
It vould bo impobsihle to estimato tho
number of eyes that during those beautiful
Bummer nights woro eagerly scanning tho
heavons thiough telescopes, flold-glasscs,
lorgnettes and evory other optical instrument
as yet invented. Novor had even an eclipso
boon grootod with so imposing a spectacle The
observatories replied, but insufficiently. Each
of them gave a different opinion, and a scieu

April and tho first of May. Tho obsorvatory
of Paris exhibited coubidcrablo rescrio nnd
nono of tho sections pronounced on tho
problem. In tho bureau of mathematical
astronomy they disdained to consider it; in I
that of meridian operations nothing Mas dis. I
covered, nnd from tho departments of I
meteorology nnd geodesy no light could bo
gained. In fact, among nil theso scientists
not one would declare himself capablo of
throwing light on tho subject. They at least
were frank.
Tho news from tho provinces was a little
moro affirmative During tho night from tho
Gth to tho 7th ot May thero had appeared u
light, of presumable electric origin, tho dura
tion of which was ulmut twenty seconds. At
l'icsu-Midi this light was seen betwoen tho
hours of nine and ten in tho evening. At tho
meteorological observatory of 1'uy-do-IJoune
they perceived it about ouo or two in tho
morning; at MnntVcutoux, iu I'ruveuco, be
tween two and threo o'clock; nt Nice, between
three and four, and in Seiiino. Alps.at Auuecy,
it showed itpclf just as day was breaking. It
was impossible to rejcot these numerous ob
servations, and tho fact was established that
tho light had, during Miccebuho hours, boen
obsoned from the different posts. Whothtr
this light was tho focus of numeious reflec
tions crossing the terrestrial ntmosphere, or
whethor it waaoBingle product, it posbuaskd
the powor of uioUng with a rapidity of over
two miles au hour.
Hut hod nothing abnormal bcon observed
in tho air in tho daytimo ?
Nothing. The trumpet at least might havo
been hoard through tho strata of air, but,
strange to say, between tho rising and setting
of tho sun it was silent.
In Great Britain every ono was perplexed
and tho obscnatorics wero unablo to agree.
Greenwich had heard the blast, Oxford had
seen tho light, but they both asserted that
"it was nothing."

as both tho Swedes and Norwegians, who or
dinarily wero unablo to agree on nuy point,

Among all tlio sclent ists of tho world only

jeet of their disputu was not the nature of tho
tlibeowrid body, but thu prcciso moment of
observation, for thev each claimed to liino
seen it tho biime night and nt the same hour
and the nuno minute. '1 his was clearly folly,
ns tho dibtauco from Michigan to New Ham
shiru is too great to admit of simultaneous
observation.
