Small Fruit Damaged Other DU
pntclioa from the National Capital.
Washington, May 11. The condition
of winter grain on tho 1st of May is re
ported by the statistician of tho depart
ment of agriculture as follows: Wheat,
07.0; rye, 97.2; barley, 00.2. This is an
advance in wheat of one point during
April, and of quite as much in rye. A
gain in wheat is reported in New York,
in some of tho southern states, in Michi
gan, and slight improvement in Illinois,
Missouri and some other states. The
uniformity of condition is Bomewhat re
markable, no state average being lower
The condition of mowing lands is also
high, aveniging 97, ranging.from 90 to
100. The average for spring' pasture is
08, ranging from 02 to 100, except a
drop in Utah to 89, and in New Mexico
to 83. Tho eastern slope of the Rocky
mountains comes within four or five
points of full condition, and the Pacific
coast is near tho maximum.
Tho progress of spring plowing has
leen greatly retarded by excess of mois
ture in the central and southern belts.
Tho portion planted is reported at G8.8
per cent. The average of several previ
ous years has been 77 per1 cent. Tho
eastern states reports favorable condi
tions for spring work and fair progress
to date. In all tho southern states it has
been delayed by heavy rains, and later
by drougtn, which has rendered plowing
difficult and imperfect.
In the Ohio valley excess of moisture
delayed plowing through March and in
terfered with its progress in some places
during the first two weeks of April. The
work lias progressed rapidly since, and
germination has generally been prompt.
In the northwest the season has been
favorable. Spring work is well advanced
and spring grain coming up and growing
An investigation has been made of the
effects of frost on the 5th and Gth of
May. Telegrams have been received
from state agents showing that very gen
eral damage has resulted to strawberries
and early vegetables; some injury to
grapes and cherries, and peaches to some
In the east and north it was too early
to injure pears; in the Ohio valley it is
thought it may cause dropping of grow
ing fruit. The fruit belt of western
Michigan is said to have received little
injury though the damage has been seri
ous, especially to small fruits and vege
tables in otner parts of .Michigan.
Nearly all unite m saying that no in
jury to the growing crops has occurred.
A brisk wind, and dry air'favored,the
New Jersey orchards, and the loss of
peaches and apples will not be so serious
as was feared. The Maryland agent re
ports loss of strawberries and early vege
tables, with no injury to grain and none'
to apples, peaches or plums, as men
tioned. The damage to the peach belt is
apparently not so serious as was at first

About tut Sail for
New York, May 11. A stabbing af
fray, which bears a strong resemblance
to the work of the Mafia, occurred Fri
day night in the Italian quarter in West
Hoboken. Almost tho onJy things de
finitely known about the case are the
name of the man who was stabbed and
tho probabilities that his wounds are
dangerous. There is one wound in his
breast and another in his neck, both
made with a stiletto.
The victim is Louis Peretti, a silk
weaver, who boarded in Spring street.
Ho had given up his employment and
made arrangements to sail for Italy Sat
urday. On Friday evening ho was the
center of a group of excited Italians,
who wero talking and gesticulating at
West and Hague streets. Suddenly two
of the Italians seized him, ono on each
side, and a third plunged a stiletto into
his breast and neck. Sonu of tho other
Italians interfered and saved him from
being murdered outright.
Justice Schneuriger, of Union Hill,
who was a witness of the scene, sent for
a policeman, but before tho messenger
could find one Peretti's assailants were
released by their companions and had
disappeared, running in tho direction of
Jersey City. Policeman Vermorel fol
lowed them for a short distance, but
6oon gave up the chase.
Peretti refused fo discloso the name of
his assailants or make any complaint
against them. Tho West-Hoboken
police hold that this relieves them from
anv responsibility in the matter, and
they will not make any effort to capture
the murderous Italians.
A resident of the Italian quarter ad
vanced the theory yesterday that Peretti
was possessed of some secret that his as
sailants feared he might divulge when
he reached Italy, and they decided to

London. O., May 11. Tho little 5-year-old
son of Andrew McClimans, of

rible experience with a ferocious bull
dog. The little fellow, together with
his cousin, a little girl of the same age,
attempted to enter the gate of a neigh

seized the boy and began to shake him
like a rat. Before assistance was at
hand the dog literally chewed tho flesh
of the boy from his knees to his head.
The women of the house ran to his
rescue and succeeded in getting tho boy
on the fence, when the blood-thirsty
brute again sprang upon him and pulled
him to the ground, lacerating his victim
in a terrible manner. At length, after
great difficulty, the dog was forced to
release his hold and the uoy was got into
the house with the flesh nearly all torn
from his body. Dr. Welch, of ML Sterl
ing, was summoned and says there is lit
tle hope of the boy's recovery. The lit
tle companion of the boy had her arm
also badly bitten by the infuriated brute.
