I had, after a severs straggle with
i poverty, caught at the skirts of the
legal profession. A sura with gilt let
"tera, "Davie Moss, .Attorney and So
licitor at. Law,- was tacked on my
office door on Looisian a ayen.ua. With
in; a few dusty books,' an empty desk,
aid a dilapidated arm chair pfocUirned
my legal status." I had waited patient
ly for criminals and perplexed debtors
" to rash in and seek my advice, bat they
did not rash well, and hope deferred
nearly made my heart sick.
On the morning of Dec SI. 1872. 1
. sat rijarwnso lately in my office with my
overcoat buttoned up to my chin, said
overcoat answering in lien of a fire, t d
took a prospective look at my aflaUd.
. My finances stood two to five that is,
a fire-cent nickle to a two-cent copper.
' I smiled at my anticipated happiness,'
- and took an inventory of my wardrobe.
' Like their owner, my coat and pants
had evidently seen better days; for, al
though rusty and threadbare, they
showed traces of . their original color
. and texture. I commenced to ruminate
oa my condition, and achieve plans for
the future. Bat all that I could bring
' to mv aid were the words of Horace
Grealey. -t Go West." To go West was
to my fancy a literal burial of. my
- splendid possibilities."- I knew I
possessed (what young man does not
think the same) genius that would as
tonish the world if it could only find an
outlet or an inlet.
Just as I arrived at this point in my
reflections, the door of my office swung
softly on its hinges, and a man closely
muffled In winter apparel stood by my
side.- " v j ; y
iM'Are yoo-i a lawyer, sirr ' he said,
with a questioning glance of his steel
"That is my business." I returned,
coolly, straightening myself up to the
- full height of my five feet six. '
'- He smiled at my manner, slipped a
; 95 bill in.my hand, and said, blandly:
I have come for advice." - - r . .
X 'This was coming to the point; 1
thawed instantly and asked my client
to be seated.
- He waa a middle-aged man. tall and
sinewy, with black hair sparsely mixed
1 with gray. - His dress and manner pro
claimed him a man of wealth, t no
ticed this as he slowly seated himself.
v i " Suppose," said he, " you had an
only daughter, and she was obstinately
- determined on marrying a man that yon
despised a man whom you knew to be
a villain, bat had no means of proving
:&r",. - K . Tr
Is your daughter of agar I asked.
j I did not say she was my daughter,
young man; yon jump at conclusion!; no
able lawyer accepts anything without
proof." . -. -
I felt that I. had suddenly changed
places with him that he was the attor
ney aad I the client; bat. taking no
notice of his words, I repeated the ques
tion with a variation.
"Is she of age?"
"Yes," was the reply, "and as ob
stinate as a mule."
' Disinherit her," I suggested.
"O." said he, with a shrug of his
shoulders, " I have tried everything. I
hare told her she could not have a
penny of my money; 1 have kept her on
bread and water; hired governesses to
watch her, in fact, have left no stone
"There remain only two methods:
'Incarcerate her in an insane asylum,
or pat detectives on his track and con
vict him of some ignoble action," I
"Your last suggestion is the best.
But even if I should convict him of
murder, she would imagine it was a
conspiracy on my part, and marry him
on the gallows."
. He remained in deep thought for sev
eral minutes, and then said:
" Young man, I don't think yonr
business is very lucrative. How would
you like to change it for something
more profitable P"
Change or starvation was evidently a
necessity for me. so of coarse I bad no
objections to offer. In fact, my escape
from my present condition seemed like
a godsend to me. I imparted my wil
lingness to make any reasonable change.
We soon agreed upon terms which
seemed to me more than liberal, and
together concocted some plan to bring
the young lady to submission.
I had some compunctions of oon
v science, for two against one, and that
2P weaker sex. seemed hardly
fair, bat the novelty and the romance,
solid cash connected with it,
reconciled me to the situation.
... - -m . .
J'lt ? nn from the west was
gilding the Capitol dome with the last
beams of departing day, the train from
Baltimore came puffing in. It was
Christmas eve, and the busy crowds
were harrying to their homes.
Two days before, David Moss, attor
ney and solicitor, seedy and thread
bare, had left .Washington for Balti
more. This evening the train, brought
- back David Moss, elegantly attired,
" Gentleman." It is astonishing bow
one's dress increases one's elf-respeot,
No doubt Polouloe thought of this when
ht Mid to his son, Cotl hj habit
as thy parse can bay, for the apparel
oft proclaims the man." i
What a change it had made in my
feelings! A few days ago so despon
dent, now buoyed up by hope and my
increasing good looks. I felt as happy
as a king. My mirror had told me the
same flattering tale that it tells so many
a belle. My ambrosial locks were curl
ed in style, my blonde mustache was
waxed to perfection, my blue eyes
sparkled, and my manly form was im
mersed in an elegant suit of broadcloth.
Besides all this, I had cultivated a be
coming pallor for I was to enact the
role of an invalid. . A carriage was
waiting. - I was assisted into it by the
obsequious footman, and sank languid
ly on the cushions. I was driven to an
elegant mansion, met by my host, and
almost carried to a luxurious chamber.
I was too fatigued to go . down stairs
that evening, but the amount of supper
which I contrived to swallow, with the
wine it took to wash it down, would
have astonished a restaurateur.
In the morning my head was so bad
that I took my cofiee in bed. At dinner
time I managed with some assistance,
to get to the dining-room, and for the
first time met Kate Mars ton. the young
laay wnose aearest nopes 1 baa come
to overthrow. After the first glance I be
gan to think that perhaps old Mr. Mars
ton had made a gross mistake in bring
ing me there. . I never had an ideal;
my busy life in college and my struggle
to live at all afterward had allowed no
margin for dreams. But 1 am sure
Kate Marston embodied all the elements
which would have composed my ideal
had I possessed one.
. She was small, a perfect brunette,
with glorious eyes which might sparkle
with love or bate; red lips and cheeks,
lustrous black hair, white, shapely
teeth, and, in fact, everything which is
charming in woman. She treated me
kindly, very gently, because I, her
father's friend, was an invalid. If I
had been apparently strong and healthy
she would have suspectedner father's
motives and met every advance with a
rebuff. He had brought several young
men to the house, but Kate had sent
them about their business in anything
but a complimentary style. All the
ladies who had been hirea as compan
ions sho had won over to her cause.
They abetted her in her disobedience,
and were discharged in disgrace. It
was plsnned that while drawing on her
sympathy and. seeking kindly offices
from her, I should watch over her as
much as I could, and excite, if possible,
the jealousy of her lover, and tempt
him to some desperato action.
I felt immediately that it would be a
Fleas &nt task, although, hadl been as
appeared, a young man of landed es
tate, I would have entered into it with
great seal. For a few days everything
progressed smoothly. Kate was assid
uous in her attentions to my comfort.
I would lie on the sofa and she would
read to me in her dulcet tones. I en
Joyed this heartily, for she was really
a good reader, and Tennyson or Byron
from her lips was the sweetest music to
When my head ached, and I often
had severe spells with my head, how
tenderly she bathed it with those deft
fingers of hers. . I would have been
content to live and bask in the sun
shine of her presence forever, but ob
servations showed me that there was a
necessity for action. Sometimes Kate
would shut herself up in her room for
an hour or two.. Meanwhile 1, on whom
time always hung heavy when she was
absent, placed my chair by the window
to view passers-by. Invariably I saw
a man pacing np and down in front of
the house. He was of medium size,
light complexion, blue-gray eyes, long
side whiskers, a mixture between flax
en, aad brown. 1 Most people would
have called him good-looking, but a
close observer of .character would have
noted the strangely-shaped forehead
and: ,he gradual sinking In of the
bridge of the nose. I ; was not long in
finding out that this was Kate's lover,
and 1 took a strange delight in watch
ing him. I caught him looking at me
with a malignant soowL With Kate's
reappearance -he always disappeared.
I was certain that they were keeping
np a oorrespoudenca, bat I never saw
aim, receive any letters ; I now began
to concoct plans to prevent this. I
begged her as a great favor to help me
in writing some letters which on ac
count of my weakness, I was unable to
do. I kept her for long hoars writing
letters about all sorts of things to im
aginary people, which, of course, were
never mailed. I have some of them
yet, carefully put away in my writing
desk. Then we took long rides, and
she, believing me to be a stranger in
the city, pointed out objects of inter
est, and answered the numerous ques
tions which I chose to ask. I think at
those times she must have thought me
very stupid, and possessed of very lit
tle information, bat she always an
swered me with the same unwearying

father termed, obstinacy, there always

only sighed that she had not bestowed
her love on some worthy object my
self for instance. Luckily I met no
one who . knew me as David Moss, at
torney and solicitor, bat nearly always
passed somewhere in oar rides her
lover, whom her father had told me
was called Walter Reveaox. - -
At such times Kate would bow and

which '.brought frightened, grieved
looks into Kate's fair face. Then an

I had been at Marston's boose nearly
a month, and had been treated as an
honored guest by both master and mis
tress. The change in my life seemed
almost as wonaertui as tne miracles
wrought by the genii of Aladdin's lamp.
I came slowly down stairs on this
morning a little earlier than usual, and
entered tne dining-room. I nad ex
pected to find no erne there,' and was as
tonished to see Kate kneeling before
her pet canary, weeping bitterly, and
between ner sons saying, "Uood-by,

determined to closely watcn anairs.
-1 came down late to breakfast, and
found .Kate and her father already
seated. There were no traces of agita
tion about Kate; there only seemed to
be added sweetness and gentleness in
her manner to her father. I complained
of having passed a bad night, and of
feeling badly. I kept my room most of
the day, bat within its precincts I raged
furiously. To let her escape with that
scoundrel seemed to me to be to let the
best part of my life depart. Not 1 was
determined to prevent it, even at the
cost of my life.
The day wore away in slow, intermin
able length. I did not tell her father
what I suspected, but prepared to keep
my vigil alone. By ten o'clock the
house was still and silent. I knew that
Kate had gone to her room, for I had
heard light steps on the stairs some
time before. I lowered the gas, opened
my door slightly, and prepared to listen
to every sound.
The town clock struck eleven, "twelve
and one before my patience was re
warded; then the creaking of the stairs
drew my attention. Looking out, I
saw in the dim light a dark-robed figure
stealing down, then the clioking of the
looks lit a moment. I followed out
throng!) the gats, down, to the end of
the square, where a closely-covered
carriage was awaiting. I arrived just
in time to hear Walter Beveaux's voice
" Kate, darling, I knew you would
come," when I took her by the arm and
'Kate Miss Marston, yon should
not do this mad thing. Keturn with me
Then Beveaux's voice, in passion,
"How dare you interfere f I will
teach yon better manners."
Before 1 could avoid it, he raised a
pistol and fired.
I felt a dull pain in my side; then
came a blank.
When I returned to consciousness I
heard voices faintly whispering:
"He cannot last very much longer,
I had a dim idea that the room was
full of people, bat I recognized no one;
then came another blank. '
I ha 1 been badly wounded in the side,
almost fatally, but careful nursing and
a good constitution triumphed. After
returning to consciousness the second
time, I mended rapidly. I think what
helped me most was Kate's sweet face
bending over me with such a world of
tenderness in it. I convalesced rapidly,
and Kate and I resumed our rides. One
morning Mr. Marston summoned me
into the library and told mo that I must
appear as a witness against Reveaox.
This I did not wish to do, for fear it
might complicate Kate, but Mr. Mars
ton insisted, and the trial resulted in
Mr. Reveaux being sent to the Albany
Penitentiary for three years.
Kate manifested no feeling. Her love
seemed to have yielded to the force of
With Mr. Reveaux's sentence my
work was done. I had gained the end
for which I had been emoloved. I told
Mr. Marston this, and thanked him for

came into the old gentleman's eyes, as
he replied: -

certain witnesses the taking of testimony for
their aide would have to be postponed. Erwin
Craighead of the New Orleans THmm, and
NImes T. Gordv, Sheriff of the 8t. Mary's
Parish, testified regarding; the attack on
Newman and the destruction of election re
turns. Testimony circumstantial goes to
prove that the object of the destruction ol
the return was to render tha exercise of
the appointing power by the Governor neces
sary. Gaapre de Cuir, of Polnte Oonpe, a
member of the Legislature, testified that he
beard several negroes were whipped and
beaten by whites; understood because the
negroes organized revolutionary bands en
dangering the live and property of white.
Charles Decenlg, of Caddo Parish, Deputy

Clement L. Walker, Attorney of New Or

city ; believed that the returns promulgated
were not Indicative of the true results, the
votes polled for the Conservative being
counted for the Democrats ; he charged gener
ally that there were irregularities in the elec
tion, and said he had sworn statements or par
tie who witnessed the frauds. Aside from
the falsity of the made-up returns, illegal
vote were cast, and a great deal of repeating
was done. C. W. Johnson, J. A.Johnson,
David Young, Charles Lincoln, M. D. Ran
dolph (all colored), of Concordia, testified
to general charges of intimidation and
fraud in the late election. G. L.
Walton, of Concordia, s member of the Legis
lature, denied in effect the charges made by
previous witnesses. E. Keunell (colored,) of
the same place, said there were seven men
killed, all colored. Witnesa held an inqnest
over six; live were hung, one shot; some were
killed in November, others In October; one
was shot while in the field picking cotton ;
some men, mounted, called him to the fence
and shot him: those that were hung were
hung; at night; didn't know parties
who did the hanging; some outlaw were
white, some black. George Washington (col

A. J. Bryant, (colored) a Senator from Ten

waa nominated because of the threats of
whites, who said they would consider such ac
tion a declaration of war. The night before
the election a party of white cam to his
house, took him out in hi night clothes, car
ried him a quarter of s mile and threatened
him, saying he had sold out to the Bland par
tie; denied this, and they let him go after

Abrara T. Lnrnas (colored) of Tensas Par

met a body of armed white men who chased
him ; that night the same men took Charley
Bethel, a colored man, oat of bis bouse, shot
him and cut hi throat ; witness did not know
parties; was frightened away. J. Koss Stew
art, a prominent colored politician of Tensas
Parish, and a member of the Legislature, tes
tified that threats of violence prevented the
Republicans from nominating a ticket; at
the Democratic convention Colonel Reeves
made a speech saying " ho would make no
threats, but the white men were de
termined to carry their ticket, and
all opposition would be quietly removed; the
ticket waa to be carried if they had to go

road, about twenty miles from this post.
seeing no avenue of escape, determined
to retain their present vantage ground.
Consequently, in anticipation of a more
vigorous attack on the part of the troops
they further strengthened their position
bv imnrovisinsr rifle nits durinar the
night. At twelve o'clock the next day
a twelve pound Napoleon gun was
brought upon the scene of action, but
owing to tne nature of tne position
assumed by the savages the gun
could not be sufficiently depressed
to play upon the position. A number
of shells and solid shot were thrown as
near as possible to the position occu
pied, but with apparently no effect.
Affairs stood thus at dark on the night
of Mondav the 13th. On Tuesday morn
ing, on making a reconooisance of the
ground held by the Indians on the pre
vious day, the officers were informed,
to their dismay, that they had escaped
during the night. Owing to the troops
having no provisions on band Wesseils
found it impracticable to follow their
trail, consequently the troops have Just
arrived in camp with a view to equip
ping a pack train and start on a pro
longed scoot alter tne savages.
Fobt Bosmsox, Jan. 15.
There has been a temporary calm in
military movements for the past ten or
twelve hours. The fleeing hostiles en
trenched themselves on a mound on
White Clay, foiled the troops, and at
night, there being no adequate force to
either force them to submission or keep
them from running away, they escaped.
When the troops next came np with
the desperate band, the latter had
taken possession of the natural mounds
for protection on the North Fork of
Indian Creek. Here the troops aban
doned the pursuit yesterday, returning
to Fort Robinson to-day. General Crook
sent positive orders that the pursuit of
the Cheyennes be continued, and Com-
Iiany E, Captain Lawson commanding,
eft for the front. To-morrow, Com
pany H, Captain Weasels commanding,
will go forward. Join forces, and under
command of the last named officer the
pursuit will be resumed. The troops
will be supplied with six days1 rations.
There are fifty-two Indians, of which
there are but two squaws and children
in the fort prison. Of these there are
fourteen wounded, one old squaw.dying
to-night from the effect of six gun-shot
wounds. The captives Btte that while
they had no hand in planning the escape
they are yet opposed to returning to
the southern reservation. They claim
nwere told when surrendering they
i remain here, where" their parents
are buried and their children born.
Thus far no order has been received for
their removal, aside from the efforts of
the military made on the night of the
escapade to restrain the Indians.
Ed. Cooke and Dick Deer were the
most prominent doing their share of
the killing of Indians. But one scalp
is reported, and the credit of that is
given to the citizens. Five soldiers
have been killed or died from wounds
and eight wounded. Thirty-two In
dians, of which twenty-two were males
and the remainder women and children,
have been killed, and twenty-six buried
in one common grave. It is believed
that about fifty Indians, including Dull
Knife, have escaped. Wild Hog, Old
Crow and one other savage lie in irons
in the camp, one mile from Fort Bob
Ihe Sioux at the Fine Bidge Agency
have as yet made no demonstration
other than in the indulgence in exhi
bitions of grief over their slain rela
tions. It is not believed among army
officers here that an outbreak will be
made, but if no better management
prevails in restraining the Sioux from
indulging in a war dance than was
exhibited in the capture of the
Cheyennes there can be no safe
prediction as to the result. The Sioux
say they can feed the Cheyennes if the
Government cannot, and would scrimp
themselves rather than see their rela
It will require evidence to prove that
the hostiles were not permitted to es

alry, started in pursuit of the fleeing
savages, who are said to be making a
detour in the direction of Pine Ridge or
Rose Bud Indian camp, and the pros
pects of reaching the wigwams of their
sympathizing red brethern are greatly
in their favor despite the sanguine hopes
of the military to capture them ere
they can reach them. The savages
have a good thirty hours start of the
troops, and should they succeed in
stealing enough horses to mount them
selves, which is not improbable, their
escape is certain, and will be the
means of getting the young warriors of
the powerful Sioux Nation to dig np the
hatchet and avenge their wrongs. The
prevalent impression here is that we
are near the eve of a bloody Indian war.
The mail carrier just in from Pine
Ridge Agency. Red Cloud's new loca
tion, states that since the news of the
Cheyenne outbreak and its results be
came known to Red Cloud's people
there is much weeping and wailing
among them, and they say their hearts
are bad. Captain Wesseils started with
his company this morning at four for
Indian Creek. He will take up the
Foal Laaotra, W. T-, Jan. 18.
Captain Johnson's command camped
to-night at Silver Springs, forty miles
north of here on the old Dead wood stage
road. It is reported that the Cheyennes
were seen last night six miles from
Bluff Station, on the Cheyenne and
Deadwood stage road, about , thirty
miles northwest of Red Cloud. ' They
were evidently making for the station
to secure a herd of horses there belong
ing to the stage company.
Chicago, Jan. IS.
The officer sent from Omaha by Gen
eral Crook to investigate the recent
Cheyenne outbreak has made his official
report. He says upon the 3d inst the
chiefs were notified that the Washing
ton authorities had decided that thoy
must return sooth.- They consulted
their people, and next day Hog gave an
unequivocal refusal, saying they would
die first. The attempt to starve and
freeze out WM U-t sernative, On
the 9th Hog was arrested as the lead
ing oppositionist and ironed, after stab
bing a soldier in the struggle. The prison
wnere tne remainder 01 tne Indians were
confined was by them barricaded
and the windows draped to conceal
their movements. It became danger
ous for a white man to go inside the
door, as the Indians had knives and
would cut them. It was not known
that they had guns, but on the night of
the 9th they fired four shots, killing two
of the six .sentinels, and made a rush
through all the windows, with the in-
tantinn nf killino nr Kx.; n cr V 1 1 a A TKa

and children who were going in the
crowd with the men were unintention
ally killed, though many officers bravely
tried to save them. All the men refused
to surrender, and when exhausted stood
at bay. Several soldiers were killed
in trying to capture them. None were
killed who could be taken. They had
concealed their arms under the prison
floors. They had fifteen guns, a few
revolvers, and many knives. A des
perate outbreak had doubtless been pre
meditated. Tne squaws say tne men
feared hanging if they returned south,
and in this affair all expected to die.
The casualties to date are: Soldiers
killed, 6; wounded, 7; Indians captured,
71; killed, 32. A company resumed the
trail to-day (January 15th.) Col. Schuy
ler, the omcer who makes this report,
having thus intimated that the Indians
had concealed arms, it is probable that
an investigation will be made into the
manner in which thev received them.
The press dispatches have mentioned a
fact tnat the lieu cioud Indians visited
the prisoners, a fact which is not stated
in the official report.
Fort Kobutsok, Neb- Jan. 17.
A courier has just arrived from the
scene of hostilities, five miles distant
from the position held by the Cheyennes
at the last writing, with information to
the effect that the savages had assumed
the most inaccessible position of any of
the many from which they recently
stood tne troops at bay.
He also states that a party of five sol
diers who were detached from the com
mand for the purpose of ascertain
ing the position held by the In'
dians, unexpectedly found them
selves within short rifle range of over
half a score of Indians. The latter discharged-a

the fire of the Indians, used desperate
efforts to prevent the Indians from ob-
buiurag eiuicr uis ivuiauis or utiuiu-
ments, but. without avail.
Captain Wessels believes that the
Indians cannot be dislodged from
their present position without the
sacrifice of a greater number of
lives than he deems advisable, and
has in consequence dispatched Lieuten
ant Dodd, Third Cavalry, to Red Cloud
Agency, with the view to obtaining the
assistance of a dozen Sioux scouts well
versed in the Indian mode of warfare
usually adopted by the Indians.
The cattlemen Newman and Chalk
arrived here to-dav. Thev rertort the
loss of forty beau of horses, and the
trail of the thieves indicate them to
have been Indians, and possibly Little
Agent Irwin and Red Cloud arrived
to-night to learn the particulars of the
late events, report the excitement at
Pine Ridge Agency intense.
Fort Boacmow, Neb Jan. IHL
A conference was held here this
morning between Chief Red Cloud and
Lieutenant Schuyler, of General Crook's
staff, regarding the propriety of Lieu
tenant .Uodd, of the lhird Uarairy,
going to Red Cloud's new location for
the purpose of enlisting the services of
some bioux warriors, to be employed
as scouts in an expedition against the
brave little band of Cheyennes now
carreled at Crow Ridge, thirty miles
distant. Lieutenant bchuyler asked
Red Cloud if he thought Lieutenant
Dodd could succeed in obtaining
the services of one hundred and
fifty of his warriors. The old Chief,
in a very grave tone of voice, and
without raising his eyes from the
ground, said: ' My people are sad at
heart since their brothers were killed
here some months ago. They are very
angry with the whites, and I am nearly
certain will not assist them." Lieuten
ant Schuyler in as few words as possi
ble gave him an account of the Chey
enne outbreak; how the Cheyennes fired
upon the soldiers in fleeing from their
prison room, killing them, and in try
ing to punish the Cheyenne bucks
the squaws were accidentally killed.
Lieutenant Schuyler finally got the
old chief to say: "Young Chief
Lieutenant Dodd can go to my camp
and tell my son-in-law. loungMan
Afraid of His Horses, that it is my
wish be would try and get some, of my
warriors to help the Government in
capturing the Cheyennes." Lieutenant
Dodd, who is well known to Red
Cloud's braves, started immediately for
Pine Ridge Agency on his mission, with
what success we will soon learn.
It is believed that Captain Johnson's
command joined Wessels at the scene
of hostilities some time during the night
of the 17th. There has been nothing
heard from either command since yes
terday morning. Important news is
Ilarrara f the nVesu
The particulars of the loss of the
ill-fated steamer Emily B. Souder were
furnished yesterday by two of the crew
the sole survivors, so far as known, of
the wreck, who arrived at this port
about noon on the steamer Atlas, from
Kingston, Jamaica. The? told their story
on the dock at the foot of Christopher
street, in the very clothes in which they
had succeeded in effecting their mirac
ulous escape from a watery grave. The
odore Steinhardt. one of these surviv
ors, was Quartermaster of the Souder,
and Alfred E. Anderson, the other, a
Swede by birth, was a seaman.
' On Sunday afternoon, Dec. 8," said
Steinhardt, " we left New York, and
nothing extraordinary occurred until
the Emily B. Souder was opposite Cape
Hatteras. On Tuesday morning we en
countered a rough, heavy sea, while
the wind blew hard from the southeast.
About eight o'clock we found the ship
leaking. The pumps were manned.
Every officer and every sailor was at
his post of duty, but notwithstanding
almost superhuman efforts the water
gained on as, first slowly and at last
rapidly. At fivo o'clock in the after
noon the melancholy news spread that
the fires had gone out, but no one was
discouraged. We began to throw the
cargo and baggage overboard, passen
gers as well as crew engaging in light
ening the vessel as much as possible.
But the water gained upon us, and soon
made existence below decks impossible.
"Nothing was left now but to look
to our life-boats. The command to un
loosen them was quickly communicated
to the crew, and, one of the boats hav
ing been launched, was placed under
command of the First Mate. Including
the latter there were ten persons in tlio
boat, among whom were four lady pas
sengers. Everyone was provided with
a life-preserver, some even having two.
The boat had only gone a few yards
from the Souder when she capsized,
and men and women were screaming
in the water for the help which no one
The steamer was sinking steadily,
and tremendous efforts were being
made to launch the second boat. All
of those then on the vessel helped to
get this boat clear, and we finally suc
ceeded Id placing ten persons in It. A
none of the officers would leave the
vessel while a single plank remained of
her, one of the crew took command of
the boat, l ortnnately, she got clear of
the wreck, bnt what became ot ner aft
erward has yet to be .known.
" The urser of tne aouaer was now
called upon to take charge of the third
lifeboat, in which were ten persons, but
he did so reluctantly, as be preferred to
remain on the sinking vessel with his
commanding officer. All this time it
was evident to those on the Souder but
a few minutes, perhaps seconds, were
left to make whatever preparations
could be devised to save life. Ander
son and myself were fastening ourselves
to the ' booby' hatch (hatch cover). An
elderly gentleman of about fifty years
was there, and we induced him to join
us. While trying to make the booby'
hatch float, a tremendous sea came
alonsr and carried it out upon the waves.
At that moment the Captain was en
deavoring to make a rait lor nimseu,
and that was the last we saw of him.
" Everybody had now to look out for
himself, and while on the hatch-cover
we saw the ship sink beside as. Ia less
than five minutes after the vessel went
down, the life-raft, which, fortunately,
had been cut loose from the steamer,
came alongside of the ' booby hatch.
and. though it was in a miserable con
dition, Anderson and myself sprang
upon it. We urged the old gentleman
who was upon the 'booby' hatch with
as to come on the life-raft. We en
treated him to join as, bat he seemed
paralyzed with fear and did not stir.
Poor fellow! He must have gone down
We stuck to the life-raft the best
way we could, hoping against hope,
but still with full faith in a speedy res
cue. For more than forty-eight hours
we were tossed about on the ocean, and
our sufferinsrs during that period can
be imagined better than described. We
were alinoat exhausted from exposure,
hunger, and thirst, but in this extremity
we found tossing about on the waves
some canned-oysters which had floated
from the Souder, and which gave as
On the third ' day we were sighted
by the schooner Herbert Devereau, from
Boston for Kingston, Jamaica, and
picked op. I should add that the first
night we were on the life-raft was ex
ceedinelv dark. We could not see any
thing, and soon lost track of the wreck
debru that surrounded ns in the early
part of the evening. While on the raft
we suffered severely. Half of our bodies
being in the warm water of the Gulf
Stream were constantly kept in a sort
of warm glow, while the other half, ex
posed to the cold winds, felt the effects
of the severe weather most terribly.
When the Devereau came in sight she
hove risrht alongside, and we were ac
tually dragged on board of her by the
warm-hearted crew in their haste to
succor us. The raft was subsequently
taken on board the schooner also. The
Devereau has that life-raft oa board
yet. We were three days oa the
schooner before we could use oar lower
limbs, so terribly had they been weak
ened by exposure. During fourteen
davs we remained on the Devereau,
where we were most hospitably cared
for until we arrived at Kingston, Jamai
ca. We were sent back to this port by
the American Consul at that place.
The' seaman Anderson stated that the
life-raft on which they saved themselves
was swept off the Souder just as she was
sinking. They knew nothing whatever
about those who had left the vessel in
the boats, except that they saw one of
the boats turn over; they feared that all
the rest had perished, about forty of
the crew and ten passengers, xaej
were the last on board, and remained
there till the Souder was sinking. The
hurricane was one of the most fearful
on record. The most heartrending
sic-ht connected with the catastrophe.
he said, was the upsetting of the boat
nnder command of the First Mate. The
shrieks and piteous cries of the women
almost drowned the roar of the tem
pest, and. what was worse, there was
no human help available to serve them
in their terrible position. The boats of
the Emily B. Souder were considered
in good condition; but no ordinary life
boat could withstand sucn waves. An
derson savs the life-raft was in bad con
dition, constantly leaking and turning

Steamships will commence taking testi

A raw mornings since a lady living
on Clifford street answered the bell to
find a bulky boy with an innocent face
and peach-colored ears standing on the
stens. He explained that he wanted to
see her husband, and she answered that
her husband had left for his office.
" I'm the boy who sweeps out all the
offices where he is." said the boy as he
backed down the steps, " and this morn
ing I found a letter in the big scrap

" Boy that is boy, let me see that

" See here, bov," she said as she felt
for the dollar bill left her to buy coffee
and tea, "you take this, give me the
letter, and don't say a word to Mr.

" I don't believe it's much of a let

" Never mind hand it over here's

"Mebbe there hain't a word of writ

She took it and entered the house,
and the boy with peach-colored ears
flew down the street like a cannibal
going to dinner.
In about forty seconds the woman
came out, looked up and down the
street, and the expression around her
mouth was not happy and peaceful.
The boy had seemed to doubt that there
was any writing inside the envelope,
but she was not quite prepared to tear
it open and find a printed document
commencing: Whereas, default hav
