The- Application of Elcetrlclty Otve In
'i jcreiturtd Exemption Vrem Danger by
Fire The Pewt Conveyed "rhreuch
v Plve Thousand l'efct of Flre.
, Nkw Orleans, April 18. Fer the first
titae In the history of the world cotton
was en Thtr-sdny ginned by electricity,
at the Agricultural and Mechanical
College df Alabama, nt Auburn, thus
furnishing an entirely new application
of this marvelous source of power.
Fer the purpose of illustrating the
transmission of power by electricity,
the class in electrical engineering,
under the diieotlen of their pro
fessor, A. F. McKlssick, connected the
generator at the dynamo-room of the
college with the meter at the station
house by a wire five thousand feet in
length, the distance between the col cel col
lege and the farm. This connection was
completed en Thursday, wticn, by run
ning the dynamo at the college, the mo me
eor at the farm did the work of the ten-horse-power
engine formerly used, and
ground cob and corn for cow feed,
and ginned cotton, doing the work in
a simple, effective manner, with small
percentage of less. This application of
electricity net only affords a convenient
source of power, but also gives in
creased exemption from danger of fire
incurred by the use of an engine. It is
designed that hereafter all work of this
character required at the station farm
Bhall be done by electricity.

Opinions or the Italian Indemnity Case.
Londen, April 16. The Dally News,
in addition te declaring that no sane
being can doubt that the offer of in
demnity for the New Orleans lynching
made by the United States te Italy
was dictated solely by a sense of
right, says that the dignified observa
tions of the New Yerk Herald, Tribune
and Times might profitably be studied
by some organs of opinion en this side
of the ocean. The News pays a tribute
te the statesmanlike attitude of Mr.
Blaine, who, it says, voluntarily offered
te inake, compensation te Italy.
The Glebe says that the heirs of
men lynched arc very lucky.
According te the non-diplomatic
view it is net te be as
sumed that Mr. lllnine intends te es
tablish a precedent holding the federal
government answerable for the delicts
Of every separntc state. That would be
carrying the federal principles a degree
further than was ever thought of even
when civil war was net considered tee

Lkxinoten, Ky., April 18. One of the
most remarkable cases that have come
under the notice of the surgeons at St,
Jeseph's hospital is that of Thes. Car
ter, a brakeman en 'the Cincinnati
Southern railway. Saturday night,
while drunk, he bearded t south-bound
freight, unknown, te the trainmen, and
in attempting te climb from a flat te a
box car, fell beneath the wheels. They
ran evor both legs below the knees, and
the right hand. The accident occurred
at 10 o'clock, and Carter was net found
until 4 o'clock Sunday morning, when
he was taken te St Jeseph's
hospital. It was several hours
later when the doctors began work en
him. They cut off both legs nnd the
right hand, and notwithstanding the
patient's terrible suffering for six or
seven agonizing hours, he has appa

about thirty years old, and is the very
picture of perfect physical manhood.

Nkwauk, N. J., April 18. James
Abbett, alias James Stevenson, aliaB
Charles Stevensen, nccused of bigamy,
has pleaded guilty and been remanded
Abbett has had a remarkable matri
monial career, having been married te
seven wives. He has twice been con
victed of bigamy, nnd sentenced te
terms of four nnd five years re
spectively in Sing Sing prison.
Mrs. Abbett, his legal wife, who
lives nt 204 south Ninth street,
Brooklyn, appears te have a most for
giving disposition, as she took him back
after each offense. She and Abbett
were married nineteen years age. On
March 20 Abbett married Mrs. Kate
Ramp, a young widow with two chil
dren, in this' city. He met her four
months age, and represented himself te
be a gentleman of leisure with a geed
income. After living with her ten days,
he took her jewelry and her brother's
coat nnd returned te his first wife.
Mrs. Abbett told a strange story of
her married experience. When she mar
ried Abbett nineteen years age she was
a widow with one son. Prier te her
marriage with Abbett he was married
te Emily Ilavermeyer, a 15-year-old
pirl, who seen died of heart disease.
Abbett's first bigamy was committed in
marrying Hnnnnh Reach, in New Yerk,
in 1870. She was about nineteen years
old at the time. Later she discovered
that Abbett had a wife living and had
him arrested. ,
Mrs. Abbet Ne. 1 testified against
him, and he was sentenced te feuryears
in. Sing Sing. While he was in prison
the deceived girl committed suicide by
drowning. When released Abbet ex
pressed penitence and was forgiven by
his wife. A year later he met Mrs.
Mary Moulten, of New Verl wne P1"0
cured a divorce from her husband te
marry Abbet, When she learned that
he was a bigamist she had him arrested.
Again Mrs. Abbet testified against her
husband, and he wns convicted. This
time he was sentenced te five year3 in
Mrs. Abbett forgave him for the sec
ond time, and took him back when he
was discharged from prison. Her son
advised her against it, but she persisted.
They then moved te Seuth Nerwnrk,
Ct, where she procured work for her
husband. Anbett worked steadily for
seven months, and then married Mary
Ann Bailey, with whom he lived for a
short time. His deserted wife returned
te Brooklyn. In a few months Abbett
followed her. nnd was npain forgiven.
Soen after this Abbett joined the Sal
vation nrmyand met Lena Parks. Mrs.
Ablett says he married Lena, nnd in
troduced her as his wife among the Sal
vationists. Her husband began te ab
sent himself from home again two
months age. When he returned ,te her
a week age, after marrying the Nework
woman, he told her that he had been
visiting friends in Brooklyn.

LESS COTTON PLANTED.
A Fallinir Off of Thirty l'er Cent. In Flve
St. Leuis, April 18. The Republic
recently sent out circulnrs throughout
four states of cotton belt for the pur
pose of gaining information regarding
the next cotton crop. The circulars
were sent broadcast, but te parties
whose knowledge would be relied upon
as full and accurate and in no case mis

lic Saturday morning publishes reports
from about eighty counties, all show
ing bad weather and decreased acreage.
There is but one exception, that being
furnished by Clebourne county, in,
Arkansas, which reports an Increase
of 120 acres In the amount planted.
Every ether county reports large de
creases, and every county with the ex
ception 6f two reports worse cotton
weather than this time last year. The
grand result is that out of mere than
3,200 plantations reported in the returns
from Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi and
Tennessee there is a decrease in the
acreage of mere thnn 40,000 acres, which
is an avcrnge decrrne of about 80 per

city is greatly excited ever the discovery
of a local society of nnnrchists, whose
parent organisatien Is in Chicago. This
society is a most powerful organization,
nnd has branches in every large

ing one, nnd although its meetings are
held in the strictest secrecy, neophytes
are added nt nearly ev.ery session. The
agents of the society are seven girls or

cost of the same, the amount and
kinds of wine drank, the furnishings of
the residence, the quality of the clothes
worn by the inmates, and in fact every
thing that gees te make a first class es

The ultimate object of all this is net ap

Guthkihk, O. T., April 18. The ex

Cheyenne nnd Arapahoe Indian reserva

hetria, and from all appeapnecs It will
rival the famous opening of Okla
homa three years age.
The president's official proclamation,
as published in the Oklahoma State
Capitel yesterday, makes twenty-seven
columns of fine type. An examination
of the list of lands in the proclamation
and comparison with the allotment
mnps sold here by the thousands, shows
the map te be a rank fraud.
The maps show many claims of the
finest lands as allotted te the Indians
when they were really open te settle
ment The maps are evidently ioctered
in the interest of a gang of speculators,
who hope thus te keep the police off the
choice lands nnd secure them for them
selves. During the past week
ever 100,000 have been deposited In
the banks at El Rene and King Fisher
by the white boomers. Many of these
who did net dcpeslte their money have
had. it stolen from them or have lest
much of it in gambling. The gamblers
have reaped a harvest for three or four
days. Kansas City and Wichita have
emptied all of their creeks into towns
en the border of the reservation and the
local officers arc unable te cope with
such a gang with any degree of success.
The Cheyenne Indians have stepped

people ready te go In from the east and
7,000 or 8,000 In the Washita country,
