I Little Rock, Ark., May 19. The pur

to llio Arkanmt Vnizdlf, The lint victim, is
A. M. Neely, tho negro who started tiic
whole troublo. Nooly, hi father snd

Thomas Purhaiu and Frank Folbro .oc-
curred yesterday evening. Kvi-ry effort
was niiidn to get at Neely but proved
i unsuccessful, as the ncgnx-s wero well
barricaded. IVtwccn 1 and 2 o'clock tliis
morning, several slioU were fired into tliu
building, without avail, in tho lioito ol
scariug the negroes to s surrender. At 8
o'clock thi morning, Acting Sher

tliun a hundred yard distant with tho two
prisoners, whou a number of other mem
bers of tho poe raided tho AJnjcnlt build
ing. A. M. Neely was discovered secreted
under tho floor and was riddled with bul-
vleta, at leant ten shuts boing Qrod into
- him. It wa thought that oilier of the
Acoly gang wero concealed under the
ll.xir, and the party inado nn extended
arch, but found no mora.
This hut killing created A great deal
nioro excitement, and tho poplo woro
afraid of a raid on the town by tho neiwi.
Tho arling Hlierilf wired liov. James I'.
Kigle tho fact and asked that a company
of miliiia be ordered there. Tiio Governor
replied that ho thought tho civil authori
ties could preitervo tho peace and ho did
not want to order out tliu militia unh si all
i other means failed.

It la thought now that thero will l no

ataiuHt Neely that hi death w.u buked
for every moment titter the beginning of
tho riot, and now that ho In out of the way
ill thought tlio feeling will rulmile, un

WEATHER CROP BULLETIN.
Warm Weather In the South, Estremoly
Cold In the Northwest.
Wasiiinuto, May l'J.-Tho week end
ing ycMtcnlay h is been warmer than usual
in sgriculuiul districts ea-.t of tho Miis
sippi snd from Iowa southward to Texas.
It ha also been warmer than usual on the
Pacific Coast, but in tho extreme North
west, including Minnesota, liakotu, Ne
braska, Colorado and Montana, abnormal
ly low temperature bus prevailed, at
tended by snows, in somo cares freezing
wes'her. In liukola tho averngo daily
temK'mture ranged from six to nino do-snM-a
ImIow tho normal, wbilo in tho
Northern Hat. a, east of the Miwiissippl,
I ho daily exeess of tempcraturo
ranged from sis t twelve degrees.
Tho normnl condition for tho season
continues In excess, except over tho
Southern portion of tho cotton region,
where the Masonal temperature lias been
slightly below tho normal. The season is
slxmt a week iu advance In Now KuglnnJ,
New York and Pennsylvania, in upper
MiKsiailppi snd lower Misouri valley and
on the North Pacific Coast, sn 1 is from
one to two week in advanco in iiikota
and Norihwi-st Minnesota, lliero ha
been an cxces of rainfall during tho week
generally throughout tho upxT lnko re
gion, the liplH'r Misnisnippl nud Missouii
vnlicv, wlu-ra the fa'4 ranged from ono
to six luclies. Moro than tho u-uul
sumiint of rsin Is ulso n'orte.l from Vir
ginia, Maryland, Western Pennsylvania,
l-isti-ra MaMai'liuw'tls, Ijnt. rn Ohio ami
Southern Imliana, and well-distribuU'd
showers occurred over Tennesaep, Ken
tucky, Arkansas and Norlhoru portion of
1ntimiiina snd Texas.
Kxcessive rain am also reported In the
Pacific Coast north of San Francisco, whilo
no r.iin iMrcurred over the southern rtln
of tlio cotton region, extciidinn from tyjutli-i-rn.Texa
to I'jwtern Texas.
Tlio rainfall for Iho season rentiuues In
excess along the Middle and South Atlan
tic Coast, and from Southern Tex north
ward to I'akuta. Tho rainfall during tho
past week over tho wheat region of the
central valley ws timrlv, and doubtlcs
improved the crop conditions, which at the
close of last week were in a critical state
owing to tho slneure of moisture. The
thowur which occurred iu TennewM-e snd
northern portions of Alabama, Georgia nJ
North Carotins slfonled some relief to
cros In that section, which sre still grestly
In need of rain. Iho hirire rainfalls over
tho w heat regions of tho Pacific Coast in
creased the seasonal pcrconuige of precipi
tation in Northern California from 00 to 72
per cent., w hilo In Washington Territory
and Oregon about 0 percent, of Ihesunual
rainfall occurred during the week.
The weather during tho week wss favor
able for growing crop In sll sections, ex
cept In the South Atlantic snd 1 xst (iulf
States, w here hot weather and tho absence
of rain wss unfavorable fur cotton, and ha
doubtless caused some dnmago to small
trains In Soulh Carolina, (n-orgia, Ala
ams snd southern portions of Louisiana
Throughout the wheat region ot the cen
tral valleys snd the Northwest recent rains
greatly Improved the crop conditions, and
also lessened tho chances of injury from
chinch snd cutworms, which wore lucres
ins iu some sections.
The cold westher and snows In the
Northwest havo doubtless affected the
cros unfavorably in that section. In Texas
tho weather wa' favornblo for Wheat,
which is uow being harvested, but oals
were somewhat injured by drouth. All
other crops were improved. Tho rain
which occurred in tho early part of tho
week in Kentucky and 'lVnnesce, al
though insullic'ent, greatly bencllted all
crops, but it is probable that thco rains
did not occur sulllcieully early to make a
full crop of oats snd tobacco. Generally
throughout New Knghmd and tho Middle
States nnd States nor.h of Iho Ojio liiver
the week wm especially favorable nud all
crops nre making satiafactory nrogrow,
except in portions of Indiana, wiiere tlio
drouth continues, but there is a prospect,
however, of rain in that section within
the next forty-eight hours. These rnins
will probably cnteud southward over the
greater portion of tho cotton reyion, where
it is much needed.
A LEGAL 8UN9AT10N.
A Cult of Immense Importance to the
Chicago, 111., May 10. rrocoedinss
designed to spread consternation in tho
ranks of confession of judgment holders,
and have a wide bearing in the commer
cial world, were begun in tho Federal Cir
cuit Court hero yesterday. Tho initiative
was in tho shape of a bill filed by soventy
five Kantem jewelry firms, tlio immediate
object being to set aside confessions ot
judgment, whereby half a dozen Chica
goans captured tho assets ot Clapp A
Iavics, wholesale jewelers hero, who
failed in 1880. To l'auiel Loring, who
gained notoriety through his connection
with tho ftfmous Hoard of Trado "fund"
siteculatlon, Clapp A I 'a vies claimed to
owe 50,000, to 11. 11. Pcabody $18,000, to
Ada a Havens (1,000, to W. 1L Clapp
$00,000, and to Mary K linnley luring
fl2,lK.0, In nil $li:t,(HK). One flue
day in April, 1KS7, tho firm confessed
judgments to these parlies for the amounts
of their alleged indebtedness. Fxecutioua
wero levied iimiu tho firm's stock. Im
mediately Havens, one of the judgment
holders, tiled a creditor's bill, snd on this
a Chicago politician, Chas. Catliu, was ap
pointed to be receiver. All the proxrty
of the firm was turned over to Jieccivcr
Catlin and by him sold, the purchasers
becoming the judgment holders for
$10,000, nn amount small enough to bar
out all other creditors. The host of credi
tors who get nothing, snd who are now
the complainants, constitute almost it not
iiilu nil of the jewelry trade of the Fast.
Such firms ns 1L Plackington & Co , of
Itoston; Cook A ICldy, of Providemr; It.
I, lilako iV Clalhn, of - Itoston; Lincoln,
Uncoil & Co., of New York, comprise tho
list. Tlio aggiegate amount of their
claiiris is about I7j,000 of the total
$:i'K),(HKJ-of CluppA lsvie's alleged in
debtedness. They claim that tho linn
was, (or mora than a year prior to its
failure, hoolcly insolvent, and that
the partneis well knew that such was
the raso and that they never i-.ii.ld
pay their obligations. Nevertheless, they
recMcMily and wilfully continued ll.ei'r
business and continued to buy good from
the complainants on credit; doing so, it is
Claimed, iu pcrsunucfl of a well laid
schemo of w hich the confessions of judg
ment or unlawful preference, it is urged,
were direct violations of the law lis laid
down by Mr. Justice Harlan, of the United

From tlio Now York Humid.
Tho physicians who made tho autopsy
on Mind Header Washington Irving Itiahop
so soon after he becamo unconscious, and
who aro charged by tho dead man's
mother with having murdered him, havo
been summoned to appear before Coroner
Levy at noon today so that tho serious ac
cusation limy be investigated.
Tho dramatic death of llishop and the
hasty autopsy which followed, with the
grave questions it lis raised, wore yester
day tho talk of the town.
Thero is general symputhy with Mrs.

and with his wife. The wife is ill in bed
st the Hoffman House and Iho mother is
in the same hotel greatly agitated and suf
fering from nervous excitement. Sho was

friends, yesterday, and they did what they
could to soothe her, but sho Is unablo to

Sill CAI.I.S TIHC. Xl'Klll.ltKltS.
Tor tho doctors w ho poronnod the au
toy so soon after tho death and without
a shadow ol authority, Mrs. llishop has
but one term and that term is "murder
ers." She is ss much convinced iu her
own mind that her son was literally
butchered by surgeons' saws sud knives s
she is Hint she is alive.
She says that she herself Is subject to
trances and that her soninltonted the ten
dency from her; that ho would frequently
lie for day to all appearances dead; that
these attacks followed the exercise of hi
strange powers, snd thstliu, knowing how
liable ho was to (all into such a state, wss

Still, there was ulmolulcly no legal warrant

Ir. Lewis A. Sayrtt, the inventor of tlio
instrument for treating Icacimolor ataxia
by Iho susH'imion prm-ess, said: "If I
bail been in Iho pIsco of these doctors I
would havo hud a Coroner there. It was
clearly a Coroner's case, nnd in making
the autopsy without the consent of the
Coroner or tbo dead man's relatives, they
f.silishly and unnecessarily violated the Ian ,
I hard y think it possihle'that llishop was
nhvo at tint time of the post-mortem. If
bo had h.'i ti I certainly believe that tho
doctors would have known il, though, of
course, thero is, so far si is known, no
absolute proof of death except decomposi

previ in history a n cataleptic, it
would havo been Istier to wait longer
than live hours after death. That is loo
short a time under iinv ciri-timstauces, and
more" particularly in till case.
