Comjmiua, S. C, An?. 12. In a
the latter part of July, was recorded
the destruction of a block of business
houses in Newberry, a thriving town
about forty miles above this city, to the
value of $-10,000. The fire record of the
town has been terrible since January, and
not until May last did they have a stdam
fire engine, and the fire cistern or well had
not been completed when the last conflagration
took place. Since the fire referred
to in the telegram, another attempt has
been made to burn the town down bv setting
fire to an arranged box of
material which lind been placed in a
vncant room in the Newberry Hotel. The
crackling of the flames and the smoke gushing
thiough the transom into the passage
attracted attention, and thus another conflagration
was averted. Here is the fire
record for the town for the present year.
January 17, two stores burned,
January 25, twelve bales of cotton
on a platform, accidental; January
80, incendiarv attempt on a largo warehouse;
May 23, a drug house burned, incendiarism:
Julv 20, Mollohon row of
business houses, 40,000 loss, incendfarism;
August 1, incendiary attempt on the Newberry
Hotel. Just before the last attempt
a placard was found posted on a telephone
pole at the end of Mollohon Bow, which is
published in the local paper as follows:
The warning: Notice to the property
and insurance companies:
" This block can be.built no more.
Row must only live in tho history of
the Modern progress and public necessities
decree thus. Do not attempt.
Merchants and owners arc well paid for
losses, perhaps never so much ngain, so
listen to tho notes of warning. Insurance
agents, warn your companies of tho impending
danger. For twelve months havo
we worked for public good, and now, since
it has been consummated, do not toy with
the gods anymore. We are strong and determined.
We do not destroy for our good
or gainj but tho people's. If insurance
companies persist in their efforts against

Yon seo us every day, aitd those whom
you least suspect are one of us or with us.
Nono know us and wo will find time
and opportunity sufficient to carry our
plans into execution. Mollohon must die
that Newberry may live I Coriolunus
'Mother, thou ha.it saved Rome but lost
thv on,' Mollohon to Commune."
While this "notice" apixars to create no
distrust among the citii'ens, it does seem
as if it would prove bad risks for
companies to do business in Newberry.
The white citizens are loud in
their denunoiations of the incendiaries,
and they are free in expressing their belief
that whit men are the villians. There
must be a band of these incendiaries,
when they are caught Judge Lynch will
hold high carnival until the lint mm of

now a vast horde of detectives, liberal rewards
are offered, vigilance is at tin.

A- REMARKABLE ACCIDENT.
The Terrible Work or a HHdden
Stroke of Lluhtnlnsr.
Comjmma,,S. C., Aug. 12. During a recent
storm in the County of York, in the
upper part of this State,' a most remarkable
accident by lightning and miraculous
escape from death occurred. Mrs. Man
F. Starr and Miss. Irene Starr, mother uni
daughter, were returning from "a picnic in
buggy drawn by a inulo. While passing
through a field in which two negroes were
plowing, they were overtaken by a thunder-storm.
Tho threatening clouds and
vivid lightning indicated unusual danger.
Mrs. Starr was urging tho mule at a good
speed. Mr. Robert Hanna rode up behind
the buggy and encouraged
tho ladies to more rapid driving.
Whilo ho was speaking
lightning structe the mule driven by thr
ladies and killed it instantly. The bolt
passed botween tho two ladies, striking
Irs. Starr on the right and Miss Irene on
the left side. The shock threw Mr. Hanna
to the ground. In a moment he recovered
sufficiently to enablo him to get to tin
buggy, lie found Mrs. Starr leaning
ngainbt the back rest of the buggy, wtth
her head to the rear, and the daughtei
leaning forward against tho dashboard
In the meantime Mr. Hanna's mure had
run away, hut halted at the distance of a
hundred yards. Supposing both ladies to
be dead, he immcd'atoly wont to the mare
with the purpose of going for assistance.
On reaching tho animal lie found her
much excited and trembling violently.
Ho took hold of the bridle and attempted
to mount, but at that moment the
animal fell to the ground and died. Mr.
Hanna then returned to tho buggy, and
found Miss Irene, who had recovered from
the shock, engaged in extinguishing the
fire, which had communicated to her own
and her mothor's clothing by the light'
ning. As soon as the fire was subdued the
two negroes, who had been plowing in tin
field, came to the rescue. They remove.,
the dead mule from tho shafts, and then
pulled tho buggy, with the ladies in it, to
a house nearly, when medical nttcntlou
was summonou. Mrs. Starr was struok
on tho back of the head, tlve lightninv
cutting ft gash fivo inches in length,
Tho fluid then passed downward, cutting
several other cashes in its course, aim
laying open tho "flesh on her thigh to the
bone for three or four inches. Mrs. Starr's
bonnet was literally consumed, save a
small piece, and her clothing was burned
from the back of her neck down to her
waist. For several hours she was unconscious,
when she Recovered sufficiently to
give an intelligent account of the occurrence.
Miss Irene received' no cut on her
perso'n, but she was severely burned by the
lighting, and her skin abraded in several
places. Mr. Hanna and Miss Irene have
entirely recovered from the shock, and the
last accounts from Mrs. Starr roport her in
a fair way of ultimate recovery from her
SCANDAL IN HIGH LIFE.
The. Elopement Which Ha Diatnrbed
tlio Social Peaco or Oloversvlllc.
Gloveiisville, Aug. 12. Until within
a week or two there was not thought to be
any coincidence in the disappearance from
this village of Mr. Frank Stowell and Miss
Maggio Leavenworth. Mr. Stowell has
not been in Gloversvillo in two months.
The absence of the young lady has not been
so protracted. Mr. Stowell, whoso social
losition here was established on the basis
of a liberal education at Yale College,
charming manners, and prepossessing appearance,
is married and has two
children. Misa Leavenworth moved
on a social level us conspicuous. Graces
of person and demeanor made her, too, a
favorite in the gayeties of tho village. Iier
mother is a widow, the sister of W. J. Hancock,
president of the Fonda, Johnstown
and Glovcrsville Railroad.
Mr. Stowell mado a trip to the West
two months ago. ostensibly in connection
with his business as manager of the
large glove factory of Mr. Edward IL Allen,
of New York. While in Chicago in July
he informed the hotel people that ho was
going boating on Lake Michigan. Ho has
not sinco returned to claim his effects
This was a ruse to lead to tlio belief that
he had been drowned, a foar that was for
Eomo little time entertained. Meanwhile
Miss Leavenworth had gone on n visit tc
her uncle at Rochester.
Simultaneously with Stowcll's disappear
ance at Chicago the wayward young lady
left her uncle's homo in Rochester and
went West, telling her relatives that she
was going to visit a friend in Buffalo, having
purchased a ticket for that city. On
leaving her uncle's house she wrote a letter
to her mother, stating that thc was going
to EurojKi as a companion to a lady and
should probably never return to
Sho probably went directly West
and met Stowell, as they havo since been
been together in Minneapolis.
Mrs. Stowell is left absolutely pennileis
with two youns children to support. Mr.
Stowell hub always timi her that in case of
his death she would find in his office safe
valuable securities .sufficient for the support
of herself and her children. The securities
were known to be in the safe ; but
when sometime after his departure the
safe was visited for the purpose of finding
them they were discovered to bo gone.
Miss Leavenworth took with her nearl,
all herclojhing, ineludin? that for white'
wet.r. It is not Ixjicvcd in Gloversvilh
that either paly will ever icturn to tlnu
place. She w.w a member of the Presbyterian
Church of Glocihvillc and was
promincn' in church and Sunday-school
Heetlnv of tho National Society Hold
Philadelphia, Aug. 12. The first
meeting of the National Cremation Society
in their new room in the public hall
at 4 15 North Fifth street took place. Tin.
attendance was very light, only bovon
members being present. President O.
Ganger occupied the chair. There was u
great deal of talk during tho meeting concerning
a proposition to open tho work-ins
of tho society to the mihlic. A
resolution was finally passed which reads' '
as follows: j
" Any one over the age of five years may (
become a contributing member by the pay- j
me nt of $1, in one sum or in annual pay-'
mcuts, to be regulated by the Finance '
Committee from time to time, if desired,
bo cremated by the payment of the
between the total contributions and
the cost of cremation at the time of death."
The Association numbers thirty-seven
members, two of whom were received at
the last meeting.
MUTINY ON SHIPBOARD.
A Crew That Threatened to Drown the

New Yomc, Aug. 12. Capt. Mellon ry,
of the English ship Lulie Perry, lying at
Watson's stores, Brooklyn, came near having
serious trouble with his crew. When
the vessel left Liverpool, the sailors were
eng.iged for the voyage to this country and
back. On their arrival here they made a
lemand on the Captain for half their pay.
Fearing that they would desert the ship 'if
he complied with their domaud,he refused
to give them any pay, and hence tho
trouble. Tho men wanted to go ashoia
and sec the sights, but could not go without
money. The Captain said he had
none and would not have any till he returned
The men gave loud expression to their
indignation, and threats were mado to
bring the Captain to their terms by force.
When he appeared on tho deck they
pushed and jostled him, and some of them
swoiu that they would throw him overboard
if ho did not pay them what was
due, Capt. McIIonry said that ho would
snoot down tho first man that struck him.

Ejecting Mexicans From San Antonio
Indlfrnntlon 3f o e 1 1 n - A. High
Handed Proceeding--- Threat of
Itetullutloti The Excitement on the
Southern llorder Increasing The
Origin of the Disturbance.
San Antonio, Tnx., Aug. 12. Sunday
night Fred. Kerbel, lessee from tho
cityof San Pedro Park, ejected from the
pavilion on the park grounds several
Mexicans, and with them a couple
of young women. The act so raised tho
ire of our Mexican citizens that several
meetings followed. Kerbel was
Jenounced and an attorney employed to
present grievances of the Mexicans to the
City Council, and havo Kerbel's removal.
Tlio matter has filled tho papers hero for
the past live days and the Mexicans seeiu
determined to oust KerlxJ. The nuws has
also gone to Mexico and aroused much iro
there. Several meetings are said to have
been held by Mexicans at towns along the
line of the Mexican National Railway,
anil it bus been decided that if Mexicans
can not bo shown due respect in America,
Americans shall not ho in Mexico.
This feeling following upon tho heels of
tho recent whipping of the American Consul
at Monterey causes much alarm as to
the future. Tho Mexicans ejected from the
park in this city were American citizens,
but are still considered part and parcel of
the Mexican race by the citizens of Mexico,
and tho result is felt in common. The
Mexican Consul here, Plutarc O. Ornelas,
has referred the matter of Kerbel's ousting
Mexicans from the public park by circular
letter to tho Governors of tho various
Mexican States, which action is regarded
as of unparalleled itnpudenco and
very imprudent. Kerbal is no representative
of the whole American people here.
Ills net is done by himself, and lias been
condemned by the press and the people,
and tho persons who were ejected, being
American citizens, born and raised
hero, were not subject to the protection of
the Mexican Government, but our own.
Kerbel will appear before a committee of
eight prominent Mexican citizens to
explain his action and vindicate his
SLADE IN CHICAGO.
(Vhitt tho Maori Huh to Nny of the
CuifAGO, Aug. 12. There was a great
gathering of the sporting fraternity at
''Pardon" Davis' place to meet Herbert A.
Slade, the "Muon," who was knocked out
by Sullivun at New York. He was accompanied
by Jack Brighton, his trainer,
and Henry Rice, his manager. Slade
stood leaning up against the bar, the center
of an admiring crowd, vile looked
the worse for his encounter with the
of ivsthe.sicism and baked bians,"
as a would-be classical snort imt it. Both
eves had a dark purplS ring uroutid .
thorn and they wero still quite putly under- j
neatn. The "right side ol his nasal
beranee boie the mark of rapidly healing
scratches and the whole man oe:m some- '
what still". In response to questions Slade
"I feel all right I was not utJ badly
used up as the pajwrs suv I was. I wanted
to get out on thu street tlio same niglit, but
thev wouldn't lot me. I was about the second
day alter tho battle. The New York
pjpors said I was in bed n week, which
Slu'de talks with n strong English accent,
and when he gets warmed up talks like a
veritable Cockney, vou know. He talked
very cautiously and slowly, and was very
careful not to' say anything which might
" roil " anybody. Rice put in his oar once
or twice to let all comers know that Slade
did his best in the match with Sullivan,
and Slade chipped in by saying, "I was
fairly beaten, but I was a novice, and they
tell me I fought well as such."
Rice said : "It's absurd to charge that
Sullivan was allowed to win; in fnct, Slade
could not afford it, and we would not let
him be defeated if we could have helped
it. Sullivan nor his friends wouldn't huve
money enough to buy us, as we could make
moro otherwise. Why. Slade would have
been u bigger man than Grant had ha
stood the lour rounds. Then, again, Sullivan
will not let up on any man."
Tlio party move on to Kansas City by
the Burlington route to-night Slado will
go into careful training at a point about
ten miles from that city. He will train
off fifteen pounds and will enter the ring
weighing 200 pounds. Ho says ho has had
a good lesson and will now settle down to
regular training rules und diet Th exact

not been agreed uponf but it will not ba

The Nail Iliinlneaa Looking Up In ,Y.
Prxrsntmo. Aug. 12. A meeting of tho
Western Nail Association was hold in this
city. The attendance was large, nearly
evory mill in tlio Association being represented.
Reports on the state of trade developed
the fact that tho suspension of
work ordered a, month ago has had tho
effect of practically cloaring out Btocks,
that the nails still on hand aro all assorted,
and that scarcely a firm in the West could
fill an assorted order for any quantity
from its own stock, After a long discussion
it was decided to ordor a general re-1
sumption of work in all mills for four I
weeks from Monday. At tho expiration
ui una iniio uuuwiur BUUJJKIISIUII iimv uo

fall trado are encouraging. Tho present

Washington, Aug. 12. The naval
ordnance officers are working slowly but
surely to bring our heavy guns up to a
standard equal to those of other nations.
Tho great stumbling block hitherto has
been the inability of our manufacturers to
turn out steel of the quality required to
construct i a first-class steel gun. Tho
Midvalo works, after many months experiment,
has, it is thought, meet the requirements.
Steel from these works was
used for the six inch hoop gun which developed
such surprising results when tested
recently at Annapolfft. It will also be uped
for tho typical six-inch wire-wound and
hoop gnns which are being constructed at
tho naval arscnnl hero from the designs
.furnished by Lieut E. W. Very. Some
troublo is being experienced in finding
6teel to make the wire for the wire-wound
f;uns. Commodore Sicard is sending out
etters to manufacturers to get them tc
make experiments in this direction. Now
that steel of tho best quality can he
obtained from home manufacturers,
a number of steel guns will be put
together as goon as possible. Fifteen of
tho hoop guns have been ordered. The
first one will be ready to send to Annapolis
for trial within six weeks. These guns
will probably bo used for the armament of
the Boston and Atlanta. But as they are
much heavier than tho wire-wound guns,
and cannot be charged as heavily, it is
thought that the latter will bo used exclusively
in tho navy in n short time. No
strain appears too great for the wire-wound
gun. After being heavily charged the
Bhot could bo wedged in and the gun fired
without injuring it This gun will not be
completed for some time, as the workmen
at the navy-yard are novices in its construction
and tools and machinery were
not on hand to do the work with. The
winding machinery and tools are now being
made, and by tho timo they are ready
for use it is hoped that the steel wire will
be ready. If this gun is finished in time
and others of the same class can bo furnished,
none but guns will be
used tor tho armament of tho Chicago.
The steel tube for the 10J inch gun for the
monitors, which is also being put together
it the arsenal, is now on its way from England,
nnd when it arrives the gun will be
finished in a short time.

Chicago, Aug. 12. Tho arrest of Joseph
Conroy by Othcers Dudley and Mitchell
has terminated a most disgusting system ol
begging which has been in operation in
this city and vicinity for several weeks.
Conroy lias a little girl of six years terribly
deformed by reason of a spinal disease
which makes it impossible for her tc

and her crippled-body and limbs muko hei
an object to excite pity in any human being.
Her vagabond fathor lias turned hei

hor about in his urms and begging money
to send her buck East, where, lie says, her
mother lives. TliiB story and tho pooi
child's condition have in almost evory instance
been sufficient to secure donations,
which have been passed by him ovor tho
bar of the nearest saloon. Officers Dudley

investigated tho case and found the
facts to be as stated, and that ho had previously
operated in tlio same manner in

Another Link In the Chain Com
WiNNirEa, Man., Aug. 12. Construe
tion of tho Canadian Pacific Railway
completed to Cargary. This concludes
Langborn, Shepard & Co.'s contract of
674 miles, which extended from Oak Lake,
sixty-five miles west of here, to Cargary.
The main track is built (330 miles west of
Winnipeg. Tho rapidity with which tho
road has been built is acknowledged by
railroad officials to be marvelous.
Shepard & Co. receive for their work
over $40,000,000. Total cost to the Canadian
Pacific Railway of constructing tho
line toGargary from Oak Lake, over $10-000,000.
Mr. Langborn was interviewed
about the work, and said that
it had been done rapidly, but with experience
had in construction the firm
now bclievo it could bo done much
faster. All the men employed by his firm
and all outfits used in construction havo
been taken over by tho North American
Railway Contracting Company, which, under
the superintendence of James Ross,
will carry on the work to completion. Mr.
Langborn says the firm has several small
contracts in the States to go Co work on
one at Devil's Lake, Dakota ; another in
Wisconsin, and a third in another State.
Speaking of the construction of tho road
west of Cargary, through the Rocky
Mountains, Mr. Langborn said ho would
stake his professional reputation that
no man ever saw such a tine location
for any railroad through a mountain
range. The gradients are not
high and the road could be drilled
through the mountains with great facility.
The line, he siivh, is located now
about thirty miles beyond the summit of
the mountains. When work this vear is
completed there will only be 260 miles of
roud to lit built in order" to connect with
the lino for Kamllope at the Columbia
River. A large party of Irish immigrants,
destined fot Dakota, arrived hero via tin
Central Pacific road.

A STRANGE ACCIDENT. (
Narrow Eciie from , a Terrible
New Youk, Aug. 12. One of the
strangest accidents ever known on the
Jersey City ferry occurred to the ferryboat
John S. Darcy. As sho was on her
8:45 trip from Cortlandt street, near the
Jersey City side, tho packing of the engine
blcwXmt. and tho engine-room became
tilled with steam. The engineer was driven

The boat ran against the

the frightened passengers climbed up the
bulkhead. The boat then run into the

that she recoiled into the stream, and us
tho puddles were still revolving sho started
iuto the slip again. By this time, how-ever,
the engineer was uble to regain the
engine-room, and soon had tho boat under
control. No person was injured, and the
boat was not damaged. As soon as tlie
packing could be restored she was ready
tor service again, and by 10 o'clock had
resumed her usual trips.
Home Artful Dodtrea of tho Western
Washington, Aug. 12. It is understood
that the object of tho Western Union Telegraph
Company in republishing, at so
much expense, hero und elsewhere, editorials
unfavorable to the strikers, is to
create and strengthen public sentiment
against the Brothorhood, and so dissuadi
a great many from contributing anything
to their support. The Philadelphia papers
thus far nave been tho most liberally
tiatronued by tho company, and articles
leaded "Ordered Out "Tlio Strike a
Failure," and others of a similar tenor
have been reproduced here in the morning
and evening papers. The public had supposed
that tho articles referred to were selections
of tho publisher until the Critic
exposed the businebs by inserting " Advt."
at tho end of two articles which were intended
to bring the strikers into contempt.
For this such advertising patronage was
denied tho Critic. Nevertheless the article
in tho Star, "Tho Strike a Failure,"
from tho Philadelphia Press, has the significant
word " Advt." at the end.
The bondholder of the Round Lake
