Giovanni Do March!, tho plaintiff in tho
present case, is an Italiun sculptor who

avocation. He is a man of about forty,
and apparently intelligent. The defotidant
is Elesio Marini, an Italian who keeps a
drug store and praolices medicine. Lost
October ho was ono of tho oloven who
were prosecuted for practicing medicine
without a license Tho action was taken
by tho Medical Society for the County of
New York under the act of May 29, 1880.
to regulate the licensing of physicians and
Burgeons, through the society's counsel,
Mr. Chaunoy B. Ripley. Marini was tho
only ono convicted. He was tried in tho
court of special sessions, and fined ?50,
which the puid. Since then ho has been
practicing regularly, it is claimed, and it
was sinco then that ho treated Do March!.
Tho latter, upon being assured that he had
been irreparably injured by tho treatment
to which he had been subjected, commenced
the suit tor damages thiough Mr. C. II.
Bertram!, his counsel.
The case was brought before the judge in
the supremo court, who held Marini in bail
and appointed Mr. John Burke refereo to
take tho evidence and report. In the complaint,
counsel for the plaintiff set up that
Marini is not now and never was a physician.
It is claimed that the diploma he
holds and clalmB to havo received in Italy
is not genuine, as he is not a gradnatc of
any medical college. His conviction in the
special sessions for practicing without a
licenso is also cited. .
In his answer Marini states that since
his conviction ho has obtained a lie nse,
and is consequently entitled to act as a
physician. Ho admits that ho treated
Do March!, but declares that ho did it
Bkillfuily and pursued the sumo course as
would any other reputable physician. The

Among the witnesses will lie Dr. Cnrlo
Imperatorl, who treated Do Mnrehi after
ho left Mnrini's hands. Ho said that there
was something like thirty allcijed physicians
in tho city who nro making large
fortunes by maltreating poor people.
Many of them are in tho Italian quarter,
where they find plenty of victims. As
an instance, ho called in a young man
who was waiting for an interviow, and exhibited
him as a horrible example. The
sight was sickening iu tho extreme. This
man, ho said, bad been treated by an individual
who was 'ormerly a barber, but
who now keeps two drug-stores and makes
about S100 per day. Several other circumstances
were given by Dr. Impcratori.
One of these was an Italian woman, who.
when suffering from peritonitis, had a
large piece of ice and several leeches applied
by one of the quacks. She died on

Ouni.i5TOX, W. Va., Aug. 2. A genuine
case of yoodooism has just bocn developed
in this oity by ono" of our physicians.
The oase in question is one which has created
much talk among medical circles,
The voodoo doctor is Simeon Furgerson, an
illiterate negro coal-minor, who rcsidos in
Campbell crock mining regions. Tho part
'.on t is Mrs. Eliza Williams, who lives
just out of the eity limits, who has been
sick, for some time. Furgerson, who happened
to pass one day about woolc ago,
heard of tho lady's sickness and went into
the residenoe, whore he examined tho patient.
He diagnosed tho case aud
that devils had posstision of Mrs.
Williams. lie further informod the patient
that he was the only doctor
who had the power to drive
out bis satanio majesty's subjects,
(lie prescribed for her poke-root, smart-grass
and iron-weed, to which he added
grasshoppers, flies and other
insects. This bofiig mixed, it wns placed
in a quaTt bottle, set in hot water, and
steeped for some time. The quantity taken
was a wineglassfull evory four hours. Several
doses were taken of the obnoxious decoction.
Furgerson also required that
tobacco snuff be blown up the pationt's
nostrils from a pipe. The woman became
so much worse that a reputable doctor was
sent for. Ho prescribed for her, after
which her husband brought a quart bottlo
of the stuff whloh Furgerson had compounded
to tho city. It was left at a drug
store for analysis, where it is now on exhibition.
This is the first caso of the
kind ever developed In this section, notwithstanding
Furgerson sayo that he has
about twenty cases whcroin he has cast
out devils. Ho will bo investigated by the
local board of hoalth. Furgerson'i diet
for tho patient was maokeral, taken out of

Tliore havo been many Americans and

American lady has bcon for many hours

to marry Miss Jessie Clurko, a Boston belle,
but tho lady's paronts objected. Mr.

dismay, arrested and searched her also,
taking her jewels and the weeping and
frightened girl to the police station. But
the climax waB reached when Dr. Blodgett,
after explaining matters to the police, said
ho belioved ho would now tako over his

Boton, Mass., Aug. 2. Tho new American,
British and Continental Cable Company,
or the A. B. and C, as it is called, in
connection with tho Postal Telegraph Company
in this country, is promising to bo
ono of the most troublesome rivals tho
Western Union hns ever had. Tho cable
businoss, now controlled by the Wcstorn
Luion Company, is done upon a capital
stock of S'i5,500,000, represented by eight
cables. There is tho Anglo-American Cable
Company, having four cables and a
capital stock of ?:5,000,000 ; tho Direct
Cubic Company, witli ono cablo ami
$0,500,000 capital stock, and the French
Cable Company, with ono cablo and $10,-000,000
capitat "stock. Tho Western Union
lias exclusive contracts for interchange of
InislncfH with all tlicso companies, and in
consideration therefor has guaranteed to
the companies live per cent, for
yeais. Four of tho cables are now of no
service, two of them are In poor condition,
und the great bulk of tho business is done
on the remaining two, yet tho dividends
must bo paid, accord ng to contract, upon
all of them. Good business management of
course, would require tho laying asido from
the earnings on the cnblos a certain per
cent iu a renewal fund, but figuros are not
at hnud showing tho present extent of such
a fund. Tho now cablo company has alroady
contracted at 52,500,000 for the laying of
one cablo immediately, and a second at tho
sumo price, U to bo laid within eighteen
months. Thocompamy then, with a capital
of only 55,000,000, will be ublo to compete
with companies aggregating a capital of
SOo.OOO.OoO. But the odvnntngo from its
lower capitalization, representing a much
lens coit of construction, will not bo its,
only advnntago in tho competition. Tho
company uas secured control of patents for
what aro known as "speeders," invonted
sinco Gould made his contracts, by which
sixty words a minuto can bo sent by the
new cables, whereas only twenty words a
minute can be sent by tho old cables. It
is proposed to reduco the tariff lroin 50
cents to 25 cents a word, and to make it
very uncomfortable, as n necessary result,
for tue Western Union. In this connection
it may be mentioned that tho Postal Telo-graph
Company's linwnicn aro now looking

nnd Bangor to tho Provinces, and the
work of setting tho poles will bo begun
It is understood that negotiations are
pending botween tho American ltapid Telegraph
Company and tho Union Electric
.Manufacturing Company for tho use of the
June quadruplex aud duplox instruments.
1 the use of tho quadruplex eight

however, was Improved consideiably by

Ireland Celebrating Carey's IHwth
With l'roccHHloiih and Ronflrec.
London, Aug. 2. O'Dounell denies that
tie knew Carey before ho arrived at Cape
Town. Ho denies that he was dogging
him, and says that his determination to kill
was only formed after tho Melroso Castle
lett Cope Town. Then Carey by his conduct
indicated hip identity and aotod in
such a manner as to crcato within the
prisoner an irresistible impulse to kill him.
O'Dounell points t the fact that Mrs.
O'Donnell accompanied him as a proof that
his journoy was not ono of conspiracy.
Tho prisoner, however, refuses to state
what purpose ho had in carrying with him
the infernal machine found in his luggage.
Tho police olaim to have proof that

tho Invinclbles undor orders to follow Mrs.
Carey whorover sho wont, until soraowhero
he should with her ohildron meet the roan
who, by her and their conduct, would bo
indicated beyond all doubt as Carey,
nnd to kill that man tho moment his
tity was made out. Tho officers Bay that
Mis. O'Donnell was taken along to assist
her husband by ingratiating hersolf with
Mrs. Carey and hor children.
Liuerioic, Aug. 2. Enormous orowds
have boon parading tho streets rojoiciug
over O'Donnell's shooting of Carey. The
feeling is intense, and the polico would
havo interfered but for fear of exciting a
riot, The orowd was boistorous and noisy
without showing signs of ugliness.
Tbe effigy of James Caroy.'the informer,
was carried at tho head of tho procession,
cuffed aud spat upon, amid the jeors of
half tho oity's populaco, which lined the

procossions and lit by bondfires over
Carey's assassination. No loss than six
fires wero lighted in tho street in front of
Carey's house and two in tlio roar of tho
building. His effigy, after having boon

Thoy wero stonod by the mob, and soveral

morning were orowded with prisoners,
many of whom showed signs of rathor
rough usage. Ninety-two of these prisoners
were fined ten shillings each for kindling
bonfires, nnd four others were sentenced
to one month's imprisonment for
assaults on the police.
London, Aug. 2. James Carey was shot
at four o'olock Sunday afternoon, The
tcamcr Melrose, on which the shooting occurred,
arrived at Port Elizabeth at two
o'olook Monday afternoon. These facts
seem to chow that O'Donnell was outside
Colonial jurisdiction when he committed
tho crime, and must bo tried in England.
Tho Press Association reports O'Donnell,
before embarking for Africa, boasted he
had followed Mrs. Carey from Dublin.
Port EuzAnETir, Aug. 1. At tho examination

Atlantio City, N. J., Aug. 2. A singular
circumstance has just occurred here
which Is in the nature of a romanoe of the
most approvod pattern, it involving no less
combination than tho meeting of threo persons
who had boon intimately connected in
their former livos, ending in tho marriage
of two long-parted lovers. The heroine,
Mary B. Donoghuc, ten years ago,
when only 16 years of age,
was tho belle of a Virginia village.
While at tho White Sulpher Springs, five
years ago, sho was persuaded by hor
mother to marry a young Austrian named
Frascati, whoso dobts and dissipations had
driven him from homo to America. Two
years ago hor only child died, and a diorce
procure I her a release from tho cruelty of
n brutal husband. Sinco then sho hud seen
neither hor husband,, whom sho never
lovod, nor tho lover who tied tho country
on her Ill-fated raarriugo. Among
tho throng on Sunday gazing out
upon tho ocean from tho porch
of the New Inlet House, by a strange
irony, weie tho two men Frascati, the
Austrian drunknrd, tho divorced husband,
on ono side of his former wife; John Saunders,
the lover who had grown sick with
longing for a face now not twenty Teot
away yet each unconscious of tho other's
presence. Driven no doubt to despair by
remorso and penury, Frascati wandered
away along tho shore. When ho plunged
in lie did not know whether ho could swim
nut, or whothes ho would drown his sorrow
onco for all nnd find a gravo beneath
tho wnves. But a woman's
startled shriek lang shrilly out
over the evening air; his own wife had
seen his wild 'cap, all gno ant that this
wns tho man who had wrecked a young
life. Her accents touched a chord no other
voice had ever wakened iu Saunders'
heart. He rushed townrd tho spot from
which it seemed to come, and dragged
Frascati dripping from tho water. A mutual
and triangular recognition followed,
and there, in tho presence of the man who
had always loved her, Mary Donochito's
divorced husband knelt and prayed for for.

took place tho same evening in tho house
of an Atlantic City clergyman, Saunders
was joined for life to tho woman ho had
