A.N INDOMITABLE WOMAN.
A Lifetime Spent lu the
Cltj' of New OrlomiH A Verdict or
82,000.000 t I.ffinf.
New Oiileans, July 6. Myra Clark
Dames received last wcok another decision
from the Unitod States Supremo Court
compelling Now Orleans to levy a tax of
2,000,000 to satisfy her last judgment,and
tho City Council say they will go to jail
heforo they will obey it. . For tho last
yearB this lady has fought
for lwsr rights in tho courts of She United
States. Her case is one of tho most remarkable
on record, ,It involves the title
to millions of dollars of proporty in New
Orleaus, and It will probably not be finally
settled as long ns tho city can legally
fight against it. It is now eighty-two
yeais since Daniol Clark, a handsome
young man who had been for Borne years
leading tho life of an Indian trader in
Mississippi, camo to Philadelphia to spend
the winter. Clark was a gay fellow and
cok in all tho pleasures of tho thon metropolis
of Amorica. In his rounds ho mot a
French beauty, and foil in love with her.
This woman's name was Zulimo Carrier,
and at tho timo rbo was living with a
Frenchman named La Grango, Clark mot
her. Whether sho was marrlod to LaGrango
or not is one of tho points in question.
Tho defendants claim she was his legal
wife. At any rate whon Clark met her in
1S05 sho loft La Grange and went to live
with Clark. The Supremo Court of tho
United States has dcclarod that sho was
privately married to Clurk. and that she
was merely La Grange's mistress.
In 180(5, years ago, Myra
Clark was born. Sho was tho only child
Zulimo Carrier had by Daniel Clark.
At this time Clark Bent Zulimo to New
Orleans and acted as a bacholor. Ho engaged
himself in marriogc, and formed
ot her connections producing other offspring.
Ho denied tho fact that lie had married
Zulime, and when sho came back and
pushod the case in the Philadelphia Court,
bIio was unable to succeed. Sho finally
took up with a Dr. Gardotte and lived .with
him until ho died.
But whilo Clark would have nothing to
do with tho mother, ho took good care of
(he child, lyrs, Clark was well educated
by him, nnd wiw treated by him as a
daughter. He went again into Indian
trading nt New Orleans nnd amassed an
immense fortune. In 1813, just seventy
years ago, ho died, and a will wns produced
showing that all of his property was
left to bis mother and the city of Now Orleans.
Myra Clark, then only seven yenis
old, was apparently penniless, and the executors
took charge of tho estate.
When Myra grow to the ago of twenty
she married" a Mr. Whitney, nnd then sho
began to csntcst the will. Sho claimed sho
wan the only legitimate daughter of Daniel
Clark, and that his property was hers.
The claim was nt once hotly contested, nnd
Mr. Whitney died before it wns tried.
Tho widow continued to prosecuto tho
suit. Shortly aftcward sho married General
Gnines, nnd he entered into tho caso
as warmly as horself. Tho enso was tried
at New Orleans. It wns lost. It wns carried
to the Supremo Court at Washington.
It. was again lost. In 1852 it soemed a
hopeless fight, and at this timo General
But Myia Clark Gainos was not
aud shortly nfter this time she dis
covered a will executed by her father,
certifying that Myra was his only child,
and ci eating her his sole heir. Upon this
will Bhe again went bofore tho courts in
Now Orleans. She again lost. Sho again
appealed to the Supremo Court at Washington,
and here, in 1SU1, sho obtained a
judgment confirming this will, nnd giving
her the whole property loft her by her
father nnd tho rents thereof for tho past
thirty years. Then the war broko out, and
justice wns again delayed. Since then sho
has, 1 thi 'k, jeceived something from tho
city, but nothing in comparison with her
rights. She is now years of
ago, and will be perhaps tho richest womnn
in tho United States if sho ovor comes into
tho property for which sho has so pluckily
fought for a lifetime

New York, July 5, Mrs. Stavcr and hor
two daughters, both grown and ono an Invalid,

in the six-story lint hause No. 121 West
Elovonth street. Early in (ho morning the
mother aud daughters were in their rooms
awaiting the arrival of some friends who
wero to tako the invnlid girl to a hotpital
for treatment. Suddenly the girl got up
from her chair, and, saying, " Mamma,
dear, I cannot stay iu this room ; it is so
closo let mo go for a litllo air," ran
lightly up tho stairs and disappeared
through the attio door. Tho younger
sister followed some timo aftor
apparently not fearing any danger, A3
sho reached tho roof hIio was horrifiod to
sco tho irl sitting on tho coping. Sho
called her mother, und, as tho latter
reached tho roof, tho girl, bonding down
and catchitg hold of tho cornico with her
two hands, swung herself over Tho paved

with a shriek, rushod forward and caught
tho girl by tho arm just as sho was

Tho daughtor struggled violently' "Let
mo go I" sho cried again and again . "I

The mother with a strength that seemed
super-natural, still hold the girl, although
her whole weight now doponded upon the

A NEW CABLE.
No Combination au Cheap Ilntcn Ar
New Yohk, July 5. There is to 1!
another wiro under the sea. Tho new enterprise
differs from its predecessors in including
virtually tho wholo world in its
scope. Most of the companies aro formed
for tho philanthropic purpose of relieving
tho people on tho two sides of the
Atlantic from tho exorbitant charges of the
monopolists who control the business
through combination, and thon, whon their
cables aro laid, ontcr into the combination
themselves. This company is chartered,
however, by tho British Parliament to " establish
communication between Sablo Is
land and Bollo Isle nnd any other points
as may bo selected on tho shores of the
Dominion of Canada, and such points as
may bo chosen on tho shores of Great
Britain and tho European continent, or
elsewhere and also botweon any points on
tho Pacific const of the Dominion of
Canada and Japan, China, Australia aud
This is tolerably comprchensivo, but a
simple cable under tho Atlantic is all that
is immediately contemplated with London
nnd New York ns tho two chiof torminal
points. Tho peculiar advantnge possessed
by this new company ovor all its predecessors
is the possession of certain patents
which anablo it to lay down a cablo for
S3,2o0,0o0, wherens other companies can
not do tho samo ror less than $5,000,000.
It can bo Ecen at once that this company,
can do work at rates whloh will dofy competition
on the part of tho old ones. The
capital has all "been subscribed, and landing
rights havo been secured in the United
States, France, Belgium and Holland. The
cablo is in process of construction. The
corporation rejoices in the name of the
American, Bristol and Continental Cable
Company, and has at its head a live London
Alderman. Articles of agreement
liavo been drawn upon between It and the
American Telegraph Company, with which
n connection is established, stipulating that
no poolings of earnings or combination
witli other cable companies sbnll take
place. Independent of this, tho now A., B.

public and the commercial world with
facilities for rapid communication such as
are now afforded by no other company,"
including, of course, cheaper rates.

Nkw York, July 5. Much commotion
has been created among Catholics by Judge
Freeman's decision in the Supreme Court,
that a trust to pay money for masses to be
said for the rcposo of tho soul is void, for
their is no moro common" practice among
Catholics than to have masses said for "the
souls of tho faithful departed." Tho decision
Was, so far as could bo ascertained
universally condomncd by Catholics.
Father Farley, tho Cardinal's socretary,
was especially emphatio in his condemnation
of the application of tho law.
"It is a violation of the rights of conscience,"
said Father Farley, " and in its
ossenco a violation of all law, human and
divine. Thoy may put it as they please
and wrap it up in whatever words they
please, but it is really the outcome of tho

Henry VIII., Elizabeth, Edward VI. and
all along. Those laws woro invented
to persecute tho Catholics. But

Freeman sayH truly that the English Protestant
dootrine of 'superstitious uses,'
undor which tho English courts condemned
all massos both for tiio living and tho dead,
is 'against tho spirit of our institutions and
should not bo adopted by our courts,' The

Ou.uia, Neb., July 5. Gcnoral George
Crook, reuohed Omaha last night from

It is tho opinion of Gonoral Crook that
tho Indian troubles in Arizona aro sottled ;
at loast it looks that way to him.
Ho said he did not know what was
wanted of him at Washington ; ho had been
simply ordered there without explanation,
Tho supposition is that he is wanted for
consultation as to tho disposal of tho

tho Indians. It is fair to pro-sumo
that ho will rccommond that they be

At the banquet thoro was a unanimous
sentiment that the Government should
adopt Gonoral Crook's peace policy of dealing
with the Indians as the only one, and
that tho management of the Indians and
