An Incendiary Fire.
What was formerly the Waters &
Walling college building was de
stroyed by fire between 11 and 12
o'clock last Wednesday night.
Four years ago, when our City
Schools were established, the cor
porate authorities, bought the build
ing, and exchanged it to the A. M.
E. church for the building on College
Street now used for the white City
School, the corporation paying-the
difference in price to the church erec
tion iund of the Northern Methodist
Church. By the terms of the deal
the W. & W. building became the
property of the A. M. E. Church, the
city retaining the privilege of using

A. II. Joyce and Itosena Spears
have been the teachers in the colored
City School ever since It was estab
lished, and although there was con
siderable opposition to them among
the colored people,they were re-elected
for the coming terra, which was to
open next Monday.
Joyce had been absent from town
during vacation, but returned Thurs
day. There is little room to doubt
that the building was fired by an in
cendiary, and that the motive for it
was the opposition to Joyce and his
assistant teacher. The Board of
Mayor and Aldermen held a call
meeting Thursday and offered a re
ward of $250 for the arrest and con
vicuon or the incendiary, and it is
hoped that the guilty party or parties
may be apprehended, and full justice
meted out to them.

call their attention to the importance
of building a hotel or boarding house
here in time to be occupied next
summer. Within the last few weeks
we have had many visitors from this
and other States, all of whom, with-
out a single exception, have express
ed themselves as delighted with Ben
Lomond. They seem surprised that
a hotel with suitable accommodations
for summer visitors has not been
built before this. We talked to
many of them, asking them to buy
lots and build cottages. Some ex
pressed themselves as willing to do so
if they were certain a hotel would be
built at which to take their meals.
They like the water, air and scenery,
and would be glad to summer here
were there suitable accommodations.
We believe if the owners of this beau
tiful summit were to expend a few
hundred dollars each in building even
a small hotel and beautifying the
grounds, they vtfould then have a de
mand for lots, on the sales of which
they would receive enough to cover
expenses of building a small hotel.
Until some steps nre taken by the
property owners to provide accom
medations we cannot hope to have
much demand for lots. We believe
every dollar properly and wisely ex
pended here by the company would
Drove profitable. We submit these
thoughts for their consideration, hop
ing they will at least give the matter
some consideration in time for next
season. Now is the time to begin if

Washington, Aug. 11, 1890.
Republican audacity can scarcely go
farther than it did on Saturday when
one of the doorkeepers of the House,
claiming to be acting under instruc
tion from the Speaker, attempted to
use force to prevent Representative
Enloe leaving the House for a few
minutes. Mr. Enloe, as any other
American citizen would have done.

me nouse as a question
of personal privilege, and very naN
urally wanted to know if the Speaker
had issued such instructions, and if I
so by what authority.
The Speaker denied having issued
such instructions ; but at the same
time stated it as his opinion that the
door-keeper had done right. Saint
Joseph Cannon, who is second only
to Mr. Iteed in audacity, defended
the action of the insolentdoor-keeper.
Mr. Enloe protested that if officers of
the House were to be given the au
thority to keep members in the
House against their wills, they would
some day keep them out of the
House by the same authority. The
matter was finally referred to the
committee on the Judiciary, and a
majority of that committee being re
publicans but little is to be expected
in the shape of justice.
Truly one might ask, under what
form of Government do we live?

Mr. IMaine's reciprocity idea is
ahead, and the indications are that it
will certainly be adopted by the Sen
ate, but in the House, where Speaker
Reed, who is bitterly opposed to it, is
sole Monarch, it may possibly be
defeated. Messrs. Reed, McKinley

party, are trying to convince Mr.
Harrison that it will be ruinous to
him and his party for him to send a
message to Congress favoring reci
procity, as he has promised to do.
The republicans of the House, par
ticularly Mr. Reed and his coterie,
have persistently antagonized the
workingmen of the country during

they do not hear from it at the com

Volcanic Eruptions in Indiana
Shelbyville, Ind., Aug. 11. A
volcanic eruption is now taking place
in this country. At 9 o'clock this
morning the denizens of Waldron and
vicinity, living near" Ogden grave
yard, ten miles southeast of this point,
were thrown into great excitement
by the upheaval of the earth and the
falling of stones and mud in the
neighborhood. About three miles
south of Waldron, at a point where
Conns creek empties into Flat Rock
river, the streams form a horseshoe
bend and within the bend are about
ten acres of land. At this point an
upheaval occurred tearing holes In
the ground and igniting surrounding
objects from burning gas.
The river-bed is rent with great fis
sures and the water is pouring down
into the earth, leaving the bed dry.
Geysers in various places are throw
ing mud, water and gas to a height
of fifteen feet, and the whole surface
of the river is aflame. Great noises
are heard from the earth and the
road which runs alongside the river
has sunk ten feet. Excitement pre
