NbwYork. Nov. a. John Cheese-
man, editor and proprietor of tbe Patriot,
the leading Demooratlc weekly newspaper,
of Cumberland County, N. J., was nbot
to-da by J. N. Van, Syokle, a prominent
DemofTBtio pollUolaa. Arter belDg
ibot CaeeMman oauibt Van Syckle by tbe
(kroet, bora btm to tne floor, and beat bU
faoe Sob pulp. Cheese man It not seriously '
wouaded. Van Syokle will die within a few
hours. Chsessman has been a newspaper j
publisher In Brldgeton for twelve yearn,
and bin editorials have Invariably
been aggressive. In his youn
ger day he had some reputation by his
prowess as a fighter. He la now forty-five
years old and lives with bis wife and two
grown sons, In a comfortable home In Iho
center gf tbe town. He Is about six feet
tall, rawboned and musoular. His coun
tenance la that of the American seen In
caricature; long, with prominent cheelt
bonea, deep set eyes, high narrow fore
head, stiff, black hair, and dark aln, with
out mustache or beard.
Van 8yokle Is a lawyer, thirty-five years
old, and has a wife and two children, lie
U much smaller than Cueeseman, and lit
nothing like bis equal In musoular develop
ment. Two years ago Van Syckle came
here from Mllivllle, and opened a law of
fice. Cueeseman has known blra many
years. They are both Democrats, and i
when San Syckle oams to Brldgeton, It Is
said that Cheeseman at once began to look
upon htm as a rival In county politics,
Cheeseman, however denies tbls,
anJ say than Van Syckle con
sulted him before settling in Brldgeton.
Some molths ago Van Syckle was author
ised to collect a note of t70 for a widow
named Wright, the widow's son worked
for Cheeseman, and as Van Syckle did not
irtve an aooount of tbe collected money
within a reasonable Mine, the boy asked his
employer to set the lawyer and ask for an
explanation. Cheeseman did this, and
after some delay van Syckle gave the
widow '.he money that was due ber. Tbe
interest Cheeseman took In tbe case came J
a breach between htm and Van Syckle,
wblcb was widened by a series of articles
atlaoking Cheeseman that were published
in tbe Evening Sews ot this place. Then
Cbeeseman poured an editorial broadside
Into tbe Is ewe and charged that Van Syckle
waa tbe author ot the anonymous charges.
Yesterday morning's Issue of the Patriot
contained an attack upon Van Syckle, tn
which he was aouused of negotiating worth
less checks. When be eaw tbe article,
Van Syckle armed himself with a cow-bide
and a revolver and went to Cbeeseman's
office. Tbe proprietor was washing bis
bands to the second-story back room. His
sons and three or four printers were In
tbe story above. Van Syckle
baited In the editorial rooms, second
story front, aid called out to Cbeeseman In
the adjoining apartment: "I want to see
you at once."
"All right," responded Cheeseman,
"I'll be out In a minute."
"When Cbeeseman came out of tbe back
room Van Syckle
AROSI FROM TBE COVER
of tbe desk on wbloh he bad been nu rsing
bis wrath, and drawing his cowhide, Bhook
It at hie enemy. Although Cbeeseman bad
never been eowhlded, tbe Instrument in
Van Syckle's hands, Instead of inspiring
btm with terror, only made him stop and
laugh. Then the little man's rage knew no
bounds. Throwing down tbe cowhide be
drew a revolver and fired at Cheeseman,
who wai only a few feet distant. The editor
threw up his left arm and the bullet passed
through his coat sleeve and struck
his breast two Inches above
the heart. Cbeeseman staggered,
but reooveaed his presence of mind In
him, and turned its muzzle upon its
owner, who threw the weapon across tbe
room. Cheeseman hurled bis oppouent to
the floor, knelt upon the fallen man's arms
and tben throttling him with his left hand,
pounded him In the face with bis right fist.
Tbe pistol shot and Van Syckle's cries for
help brought Cheeiem,n'e sons and tbe
printers down stairs and drew a great
crowd ot people from the street. Cbeese
Was CRAZED WITH RAGK,
and It was with dlflloulty that he was drag
ged from his almost Insensible antagonist.
Cheeseman said afterwards: "1
thought I was fatally wounded,
and I was resolved to kill blm if my
strength lasted. Several policemen enter
ed and Van Syckle was helped to tbe wash
room. His nose and cheeks were pounded
to a Jelly, and the skin and flesh of bis
forehead hung In shreds over bis eyes.
Cbeeseman went at onoe to the mayor's
office and bad a warrant Issued for the ar
rest of Van Syckle for shooting with Intent
to kill. Ffltetn minutes later Van Syckle
was led to tbe mayor's office by Officer
Campbell. Turning St Cheeseman he said
to blm: "Thank God, I did not kill you."
Cbeeseman Immediately replied: r' Well,
I am sorry I did not kill you,
and I would hare done It if I bad not been
pulled off by tbe boye. "
During the examination Van Syckle be
came weak from loss of blood and bad to be
taken to the Jail, where he now lias at the
point of death. The affair created tbe
most Intense excitement In tbe town and
county, as the prlnolpali are known to
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. '34. Henry
Smith, aged 40, a professional thief, was
hot dead by George Trenwlth about 0
o'clock this morning, tn the latter' saloon
at No. 629 South Fourth street. Smith
bad a quarrel with Trenwlth. The latter is

Cairo Short Ltne train. Tliey are in an tin
pleasant frame of mind and are by no
means sparing of criticism of tho way they
have been treated since they left. M. O.
May, of New Orleans, who was on tho
train, said this morning:
"There's tust about eleven trnln-louds
of people arrived back bore thin morning
after having been prevented from pursuing
their Journey by the Arkansas flood. Wo
lay over at Arcadia, Mo., with a num
ber of othar delayed trains. This train
was to go over the Bltnont branch of iho
Iron Mountain road to Belmont and should
have left tbe main line at Bismarck, but it
went on to Arcadia hoping to go by the C.
A. V. line on to Charleston. This proved
Impracticable and the train after being de
layed at Bismarck from 1 a. in. to 9 p. m.
yesterday ami at Arcadia until 5 p. m.,wai
allowed to return to St. Louts. We want
ed them to leave earlier so that we would
be sure to catch the Cairo Short L'n! train
last evening, but although we arrived at
Plum street throe -quarters of an hour be
fore that trtuvJtarted,.' such rleluys oc
curred tbore that we arrived at tbe Uolon
Depot too late. The whole affair bw cuuscd
great dissatisfaction. Tbe flood, of
course could cot be helped, but the pits
sengers, we think, ought to have been bet
ter treated. We bad to pay for all our
meitls. To-day, although the conductor of
tbe sleeper assured us that we would get a
full rebate when we got back to town, I was
informed at tbe Pullman office that such
was not tbe cae, that the conductor npoke
without authority and that we would have
to pay again for our sleeper tbls evening.
There were thirty of us on tbe sleeper, and

A fashionable Dinner.
New York, Nov. 24. One of tho hand

given In this city was the lunch party
tendered yesterday afternoon to James
McIIenry, the London railroad king,
by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Powell Fowler,
at their residence, No. 89 East Sixty
eighth street. The rooms were converted
Into bowers ot palms, amid which were
scattered small, round tables, in tbe centre
of which were placed great baskets of
flowers, while at the plate of each of tbe
ladles was a large corsage bouquet of roses,
Tbe mantels were bauked with flowers
and In the ball a screen ol palms bid the
musicians from view. The menus were
very handsome, bearing the coat of arms of

Joliktt, III., Nov. 23. Another Inter

transpired there yesterday evening. The
skull of Anderson, tbe murdered pris
oner, which was offered In evidence
during tbe trial to prove the stab
iu the ear coming out of the mouth, earn
ing away one of the molar teeth, and tbe
possibility of which wound the expert
physician for tbe defense denied, has
mysteriously disappeared. Tbe
skull was in charge of Dr.
Campbell, the prison physician, who
kept it In the basement under his
office In a bucket. Desiring to remove It
to a place of greater safety, to
offer in the new trial, which
had been granted the doctor yesterday eye
ing went to get It. The bucket was there,
but the skull was gone. This destroys one
of the most fatal eviden

attorneys for tbe defense yesterday filed a
petition for a change of venue, staling that

Outrageous Treatment of a Ship's Mate
by His Captain-Forty-Nin Days ia
New York, Nov. 24. "H. A. Slater,
November 18, 1883, forty-nine days In
irons," In letters an Inch and a half in
length, carved with a piece of tin on tbe
bulkhead of the lazaret on board tbe ship
Northern Light, explains tbe sufferings
which the terribly emaciated victim of the
inscription was compelled to undergo on a
tempestous voyage of about sixty-five days.
Early Tuesday morning tbe American ship
Northern Light, Captain Joshua Slocum,
from Manilla, via Port Elizabeth, South
Africa, entered tbls harbor making signals
of distress, and the revenue cutter Grant
responded. Capt. Slocum hurriedly came
ashore, and made his way to United States
Commissioner Shields' office, where
UB MADE AN AFFIDAVIT
to the effect that on September 80 Henry
Arthur Slater attempted to shoot Win.
McQuade with a pistol. Tbe Captain sub
mitted to Assistant District Attorney Fos
ter, In support of bis charge, tbe log of the
ship, which set forth frequent arrests of
men during the voyage for mutiny and In
subordination, and after glancing over It,
Oen. Foster remarked:
"Why, Captain, you must have had a
hell afloat, Judging from your log."
"Yes, that's so," replied Capt. Slocum,
"I have bad trouble all along."
A warrant was issued and Deputy Mar
shal Bcbel was
SENT TO AMST SLATER.
"I am a native ot Rhode Island, and al
though I am only 26 years old have been
following tbe sea tor fourteen years. My
father has also been tn the merchant ser
vice and In tbe American navy, but now
lives in retirement In Boston. I arrived at
Port Elizabeth In tbe British bark Lord
Tredegar from Port Adelaide, as first mate,
but wishing to go home, and the Northern
Ligb; being In port, I shipped on ber as
second mate. Soon after leaving port I
overheard Capt. Slocum say to the chief
otllcer that he would rather have bad a
Dutchman in my place, as he 'did not like
that American chap.' I felt instinctively
that there would be discord during the voy
age. AH weut smooth until September,
26, eleven days out of port, when I gave tbe
KiMR oi;I)KH9 IN THE RIOOINO,
ami while tney were being executed the
capiuln came up and asked me why I did
not obey his orders, I had not heard blm
give any orders, and a wordly conflict en
sued, when tbe captain called me by a filthy
name and said "I will knock your d d
brains out, " at tbe same time striking me
on the head with some Instrument, cutting
my left oheek and temple. Tbat same
evening I was preparing for supper when
the captain said, "I don't want you In tbat
cabin any more. Keep your d d carcass
out of that cabin. "
1 AM AN OFFICER
on board of this sbip, Captain, ' I said ,
'and occupy a room. Tou can send me to
my room.' To which he replied: 'Take
your things forward In the forecastle. I
will soon see about this. ' I then went for
ward and the first mate came to put me In
irons, but I objected, saying I have done
nothing to merit It and tbat I would not go
aft, as I feared treachery. On October 11 1
was too III to work and the Captain forced
me on deck, where I was surrounded by
tbe first and third mates, tbe carpenter and
captain. Tbe latter told Mitchell, tbe first
mate, to put tbe Irons on me. 'I do not
deserve tbls, Captain,' 1 cried, and ran
back towards my quarters, when the cap.
tain pulled his revolver and
SAID WITH AN OATH,
put two pairs of Irons on blm and put a
chain around blm.' A cbutn ot ninety
links, each of which weighed bait a pound,
was riveted on my right ankle and to the
ring bolt on tbe deck until S o'clock tn tbe
afternoon, when I was removed to a box
which tho c.iptain bad ordered made In tbe
lazaret. It was Ave feet lonsr, four feet
wide and four feet high. In this hole,
without light, I was kept chained from
October 2 until yesterday. During all of
this time I was outot the box only four
hours, to admit of its being cleaned. Dur
ing the first week I was given one sea-biscuit,
ororacker, and some water a day,
and after that I got two biscuit a
FIRED TWICH AT MB,
but neither shot took effect. I had no soon
er got Into the forecastle than the first and
third mates and came with cutlasses and re
volvers aud brougbt me aft on the poop
deck, where tbe mate put the Irons. The
captain shouted, ' that's not enough, tsks
them oft and put his bands behind his
buck and put two pairs on. ' I was taken
tinder the halt deck, four feet blgb.
Through some defect In the Irons I man
aged to free myself during the ntgbt and
went to my room. But an the following
day, at 6 o'oluk, I was again surrouncd by
the officers, with cutlasses and -revolver,
and tbe captain
I fXLT TOO ILL TO KIT
anything on October 19, and the mate gave
roe a dose ot something wbleb purged me
so that I was In a semi'oonselous condition
tor five days. I had been keeping track of
tbe days by marking on tbe bulk-bead with
a pieoo of tin, which Frank, who brought
me my rations, gave to me after tbe attack.
He told me I was five day behind In nn
count. I was so weak thai bo bad to boi'

A CLEVER CONSPIRACY.
London, Nov. J4.-The arrest, yester
day, ot the socialist Wolff and tbe capture
of two Internal machines, was the result of
a conspiracy on the part of Wolff and a
Freoobmau named Bolderane to obtain
reward expected to be paid an Informer.
The Frenchman bad undertaken that role.
Investigation shows that the conspirators

London, Not. 24. Tbe anti-Mormon
movement Is beginning to take definite
shape In England. The success wbloh has
attended tbe efforts of tbe Morman mission
arles, particularly tn the manufacturing
districts, has led to a strong feeling of op
position, and an organized movement on a
large scale has been set on foot to offset tho
obvious Influence ot the polygam'sts.
Many meetings have been held particularly
In tbe north of England, and a petition to
tbe Crown, praying for proteotlon
against the evils resultant from polygamy,
baa been freely circulated and liberally
indorsed. A committee to-day presented
this memorial to Mr. Gladstone, ana
solicited bts official Influence towards
abating tbe evil complained of. Mr. Glad
stone received the deputation with a great
deal of courtesy, and said be fully ap
preciated the Importance of mitigating, In
some way, the growing tendency to embrace
a belief so foreign to the ordinary English
mind. He thought, however, tbat methods
other iBfttban those which might
be obtalued from legislation
should be sought. Mormontsb
prospered principally among the poorer
classes, and tt was generally some hope of
material benefit which Induoed people to
fall Into the arras of the Utah missionaries.
An Improvement In tho condition of the
working classes would, In his opinion, do
more towards nullifying the influences 01
Mormoulsm than any legislation wbloh bit
government could devise. In conclusion,
Mr. Gladstone said tbat he extremely re
gretted that, under the circumstances, he
could not Interfere. Tbe missionaries,
as tar as be knew, resorted U
no Illegal devices to obtain proselytes,
people, particularly tbe young women Whs
followed them, did so willingly.

Indicates tbat the strength and ambition ol
