Tilnst Up the Telettrnph llnsl-iesw from
t'lttenuo to l.onitiin nnd Trnm Nw Orleans
to MonlrrivJ Adnnllc t'nhle InTolveil.
It will bo rows to most folks to hear thnt
thero wns n very romarkablo display of tho
nurorn borealis in theso p irts yeterdny. Hut
what was not known by tho general public
about the matter wus morn than mndo up for
by the cxisperatlng amount of knowledgotho
olcetrlclnnsnnil telegraph operators had of it.
In Hits c.isn It was a display of auroral forco
without uny scenic effects. Tho atmosphoro
of tho whole country, north, south, east, and
west, of the north Atlantic nnd even as far
over ns lircat llrilnln. was vory henvlly
charged with electricity, and for an hour In
thomiddloof tho day all offorts to telegraph,
by either aerial, underground, or siibtnarino
circuit, wero vanity and vexation of spirit.
On tho occasion of the last auroral disturb
ance, on July 111 ult., it wns nolod by the)
electricians, and told by Tiik Sus. that tho
nmount of electrical forco In the ntmosphero
was vory much greitr during tho day, bo
tween tho hours of 11 A. Jf. nnd"4 F. M., than
at night. There was a wondrous eelestlnl
spectacle at night on that date, but tho nuro
rnl forco was not felt nnrly so much then ns
during tho day. The nuroral disturbances
yesterday wero vory great, but tho footlights
of tho sun killed tho rod nnd bluo lire ot tho
nuioia up in the lllo.

r.rondwiiy. Hie aurora practically "busted"
every wire running out of the office for a
longer or shorter period between noon nnd 5
o'clock In thn ovetilni?.
" We have boon very much bothered bv tho
auroml foico all the afternoon." said Manager
llronnnn. "and iu somu particulars to-ilay'n
disturbance low been moro lemarkahlnthan
any that I have known. Usually its elfectsaro
felt only on tho circuits running north: the
further north tho greater the interruption.
Hut to-day wo felt it on circuits running In
every direction, north, south, east, and west.
Woweroas much bothered otithnNowOrloans
circuit as on Montreal. At times overy circuit
in tlie otllce was usoless. Tho auroral force of
electricity was so stiong that wo were occa
sionally able to work some i ircults, as Hoston
and Montreal, for sweral minutes bv that
force alone and without our batteries. This, of
course, was onlv tetuporn-y. because tho forco
of tho current Is so variable and it reverses
from positive to negative so rapidly that wo
could do nothing ptactlcal either with It or
with our own batteries. Thi groatost trouhlo
was frit between 12 .10 and I HO, but we wore
hardly cleai of trouble l.y f o'clock. It was
not so strong at any tlmo as tho display of
July Hi. but It was stiong enough to stop us
working and exasperate overy ono generally
Wo would get a let-up for a few minutes ami
would get to work, when suddcnl) thcaurori
would swoop down and 'bust' everything
sky high, lly 11 o'clock, how ov or. wo seemed
to bo pretlv clenr of It."
Iho Atlantic cables felt the auroral disturb
ance as much ns the land lines, and it Is on
the dellento instiuments of the cable circuits
that the ellects of these mvtei!ous electrical
disturbances are most felt and can ho more
interestingly obsorved. The troublo began
about l'J.otl F. M.. New Yolk time, vesterday.
The siphon of tho "rocorder" instrument,
really a delicate galvanometer needle, was
steadily deflected fir from the zero lino and
pulled bv the auroral foice away boyotid any
point to which the ordinary current of tho
cable circuit ever draws It. it Would remain
so deflected for a minute or so. slowly return
to yero. nnd then travel over Into tho opposlto
direction. The reversals, tho strength, and
the duration, ot the auroral currents could
thus be most clenrly observed. The disturli
nne was not nearly so strong ns Uint of July
lit nud the interforenco with communication
if l- iwit- I.H irruiit
All the cables. Commercial and Wostorn
Cnion. running under tho sea from hore to
Nova fcotbi felt thn aurora. At times it vvn
found ujilbl to opemte the land circuit
from hero to Kockport, Mass., with tho auroral
" Wo were bothered n great deal for a whole
hour, from 12:,"0 to l.."0 F. 51.." said buperln
tendent Sinirt of tho Commorcial CnbleC'om-
fiauy, "but It was worse during the first half
lour. The trouble was just ns bad on tho long
cable, from Nova Scotia to 1 1 eland, us on tho
cables wholly on this side."
The cables of thn Western T'nion. from Nova
Srotlnto Fenzauce.wcMi equally affected nnd
interrupted, und it was reported from (ireat
Jlrltnin that telegraph circuits over there wero
Miry niu.-h distuibed by nuioral currents.
This wool 1 indi(tu that the auroral fori os
wero exerted ovei an Immense area. Chl
cigo was " laid out" In all directions to somo
extont, nttlme-. wholly Interrupted, nnd It's a
long reach from Chicago to England, but tho
aurora si imied to stietch it.
The thunderstorms which hnve hotherod tho
land circuits so much in the past week have
not troubled tho cables ntiill. It Is very raw
that such electric storms have any effect on

a bullet wound In his right temple. A now

Svk Fr.ANTtsro, Aug. 12. -Full details wero
received to-day by tho brig tlalllen from Ta
llin of the foulest cae of murder and piracy
known In the South Sens for yenrs. The old
California schooner Dolly J., which served for
vears as a pleasure yacht for King romnrnef
Tahiti, was recently sold nt the King's denth
and chrlstoned tho Nlulony. Sho was fitted
out by merchants of Papeete, for n crulso
among tho South Sea Islands.
Tho vossol wns loaded with goods fortrnde,
nnd bonldos thero was Jfi.OOO on bonrd vvlicro
with to buy copra and pcnrl shell, ('apt. Cas
tellnwns in command, tho matowns a man
named Hoedlquo. tho supercargo was Willie
Gibson, the rook, a Knnaka lrom tho Island ot
Monla. nnd tho romalnlng four of the crew
wero Kanakas. Tho Captain was not well
known In Tahiti, but everybody know Hoedl
quo. He Is n man of splendid nttnlnments. nnd
can npenl; Kngllsh. Fiencli, German, and nit
tho dialects of tho South Seas. Ho has a broth
er who has heen n trader In tho Klngswell
group. Hot men nre exact counterparts of
Case, thevlllnlii, InStcvouson's "On thcHcach
ut 1 ulcsa."
On the night before tho vessel wbb to salt
from l'npeeto sho dlsnppcnred. Tho owners
wero worried, nnd sent out u gunboat, but tho
senrch wns fruitless. Finally they learned
thnt sho was trading In tho Permolo group.
Trom Permoto tho schooner went to tho Kings
well group, and thero lloedlquo's brother was
takon on bonrd as a iassenger. Then tho
Tho two brothers dotormlned to soizo tho
ship, cargo, and $5,000 in treasure, nnd In or
der to do so cot Molni. tho cook, to help thorn.
As thoy wero nenring tho Marshnll group tlia
cook put poison In tho food ot the four men.
nnd thoy died In terrible ngony. The Hoedlquo
brothers stood over them, watched the death
struggles ot the four men, und chuckled be
cause thore wns no outcry.
Molal hid himselt in the galloy. nnd the
brothers proceeded to finish the job. Catt.
Castella nnd Suporc.inpi Gibson wero sitting
in tho cnbin eating their dlnnor. JIato Hoedl
quo entered tho room, his bruthnr following.
Tho mate walked up to the Captain, und his
brother to tho supercargo. Like clockwork
two pistols wore drawn, two shots Bounded
llko one. and tho brains of tho Captain nnd
supercargo mingled on tho dinner tablo.
Tho mess was cleared away, nnd tho brothers
ate dinner whllo tho cook steered tho ship.
After dinner tho six bodies vvoro thrown over
boaid. and tho ltoodlques seemed to enjoy
watching tho sharks making their dinner off
the duid men.
Several Islnnds were touched at. and on all
of thorn tho three men had a good time, Sfonoy
wns no object, and thoy hnd tho best ot every
thing. They returned to tho Klngsvvoll group,
and whllo on n drunken debauch the brothers
and Molnl had a Quarrel.
Jlolal. after money was refused him. wenton
board a Soanish man-of-war In tho harbor,
told bis talo. aud boforo long the two brothers
were In Irons nnd a crew from tho man-of-wnr
wan In chnrge.
On boirtl wero found rt,0U) In cash, sixty
tons of copra, nnd one ton of pearl shell, so
Hint tho men must have sinmt $2,000 In about
threo weeks When tho liallloo left Tahiti
the schooner was on her way to Papeete, nnd
the next vessel that gets in from thero will tell
the fate ot tho brothers.
The Hocdque brothers. It was ascertained
to-night, nio escaped convicts from New Cale
donia. Tliey gained their llbertvnt Noumea
about two years ago, and reached Australia In
a small bent. From Australia thoy went to
Cape Colony, then to thn Sandwich Islands,
nnd finally lo Tahiti. They are men of lino
location, but hardened desperadoes who
have probably committed similar crlmos to
tho butchery with which they aro now charged.
