Misused Man, Bat It Not Afraid
to Do His Duty.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 5. "I'd lay my
head on the block before I'd retire
from the race to make way for a pluto
crat, a bondholder, a national bank
er and a protectionist llko Mr.
Sewall," said Tom Watson Sunday
night "If Mr. Sewall is willing to
pet off the ticket I believe that even
now there is a chance to elect Mr.
Bryan,' said Mr. Watson. "Mr. Bryan
and I could make a tour together and
inside of tea days we might restore
thousands of votes."
"I will remain on the ticket till the
last ballot Is cast'" exclaimed Mr. Wat
son. "When tho election is over I will
go back to my party and tnoy win
know then that tho trust committed in
to my hands has not been betrayed.
"I have been shamefully treated, but
I am not afraid to do my duty. I rep
resent a great political party and was
regularly nominated for tho office ol
'vico president. Think of how I have
Ibeen used! Think of tho humiliation
lof having to beg in public for a formal
notification of my nomination. Think
of tho indignity of being asked to
abandon tho cause of my party for the
sake of a fellow like Sewalll No, I will
not retire. I intend to vote for Bryan
and do all in my power to elect him.
But I want to warn the free silver
democrats of tho country that they can
not hope to secure enough votes from
the populists to elect Mr. Bryan by re
viling their candidate. You can not
laugh down a cause for which 1,800,000
have cast their votes. These men arc
beginning to realize that their party
has been sold out."

It It Thought a Definite Understanding
Hat Uocn Reached In Rcspoct to the
New Yohk, Oct. 5. A Herald special
from Washington says:
There is a well defined belief In
diplomatic circles here that as a result
of Joseph Chamberlain's visit to this
country some definite understanding
has been reached between him and
Secretary Olncy In respect to a final
settlement of tho long-pending Venez
uelan boundary line dispute.
Just what tho terms of tho agree
ment are no one in Washington is pre
pared to say. Whatever transpired
between the English secretary of the
colonics and our secretary of stato
was, of course, semi-official in charac
ter and will not take formal shape un
til Mr. Chamberlain has conferred
with Lord Salisbury and Ambassador
Paunccfote and Secretary Olney have
come together again.
Nothing in writing has passed be
tween the two governments in respect
to tho Venezuelan situation since tho
publication of the last correspondence
in July. There were two unpublished
notes relating to the question of settled
districts which, at that time, seemed to
bo -the only obstacle in the way of get
ting tho whole question before an ar
Secretary Olncy and Ambassador
Paunccfote arc expected to get togeth
er during tho present month, when the
result of the conferences between Sec
rotary Olney and Mr. Chamberlain will
take formal shape in a proposition from
tho British minister to our secretary of
state. This proposition, it is
believed, will bo in tho nature of
further concessions by Great Britain
in regard to tho question of settled dis
tricts, and will bo so much more liberal
than anything Great Britain has heretofore-
proposed, that the United States
will- be able to accept it, and thus
place Venezuela in a position for an
amicable settlement of tho territorial

How and Interesting Happening Wlthla
Of Uernard Sherman, a Hermit, at Ulnk-
Cleveland, O., Oct 5. Tho little
town of Hinkloy, 21 miles from this
city, was tho sceno of a most gruesome
tragedy Saturday, the details of whicb
havo just been received from tho stage
driver who carries mail to and from
the village. Nearly twenty years ago
there appeared in ninkley o stranger
of whom nothing was known beyond
a name, which was Bernard Sherman,
and with him camo a big St. Bernard
dog, which was the Inseparable com
panion of tho unknown. Tho inquisitive
country folk wondered for a period
who this 6tranger could bo, but aftera
year or so that curiosity wore itself
out and tho man was left undisturbed
in tho solitude of a decrepit old hovel
which he had rented in tho lonesome
outskirts of'tho hamlet, his only com
panion being his dog. The living
place of the old man, for ho was gray
and broken in body, gradually became
surrounded with an air of mystery and
stories of strange doings of tho night
time and mad, incoherent ravings
wore whispered about among the sim
ple farmers until the place camo to bo
regarded with superstition and fear,
and was shunned after dark by the
timid. Tho mysterious dweller in this
hovel rarely visited the village and
then only for the necessaries of life,
which he seemed to have plenty of
money to pay for. One night in the
early part of last week several
belated fisher boys were si
lently passing the place with
no small degree of superstitious awe
when suddenly they were frightened
and terrified by prolonged and blood
curdling human ravings of tho wildest
description, coming apparently from
the tumbled down hut of the mysteri
ous 'ucluse, and which sent tho belated
listeners scurryinir homo in terror.
The old man was
never again seen
alive. Afraid of
had listened in
the scons of
the boys who
terror to the
dying raviugb of the mysterious her
met held their silence, but the deserted
appearance of tho old hut finally at
tracted attention and an investigatiou
was started. There was only one room
in the house and when tho door was
broken in tho old man was found ly
ing dead, chained to a post with a
locked chaiu, and the condition of the
body told of a death struggle most
horrible, and the doctors ascribed
death to hydrophobia. Just outside
tho hovel was found the dog,
tho lifo companion of tho recluse and.
the beast's death had been caused by
an ax wound in the head. An examin
ation proved thn t the dog had gone
mnd before being killed. The supposi
tion is that the brute went mad and
bit his master. The old man, realizing
that death was inevitable, had locked
himself in when he felt the madness
coming on, chained himself fast, locked
his fetters with a padlock and throw
tho key away. Buried under the floor
of tho hovel was found 813,000
in gold. There was nothing that could
shed light on the mystery of his life.
In ono pocket was found an ocean
steamer check from Liverpool dated
November 0, 1S74, and on the wall hung
an oil miniature of a lovely woman
and a child. Tho body was given a
aiinir; &tr.'o declared Ott.
