to be closed very toon. "Tbe temperature
has fallen lower to-day tban at any tlm

Weber to-day, and be wheeled bis cbalr
around In tbe direction of tbe thermome

States tbli winter. Tbe thermometer In
tbe northwest rentes from 35 to 41 degrees
below zero. At Moorebead, Minnesota, It
Is 43 di greet below zero tbli morning
Over one-ball of tbe stations reporting to
this office report tbe temperature below

several days, snd, in my opinion, will close
up the river.
"Tbe westber is generally clear In tbe
west and tbe northwest, and I think It will
clear off here before to-morrow morning.
I have discovered tbat wben tbe direction
of tbe wind, however, is from a direction
south of tbe north face of tbe dome,
tbe thermometers read a few degrees too
high. Tbe cause of this error was un
known to me until tbe day before yester
day, when I found it was due to tbe
warm air coming up from the lower floors
Into the dome. I remedied tbe matter,
however, yesterday, tbe reading being cor
rect this morning."
The Beardatown Traced.
Beardstowjj, HI., Jan. 4. Tbe pre
liminary trial of John Walton, noted as a
sport in this section, for tbe murder of Jo
seph W. Secbler on Christmas eve, la in
progress here. Tbe examination was set
(or last week, but as there was a large
crowd In tbe city and rumors of lynching
were prevalent. it was considered
advisable to postpone it. Messrs. Pol
ard, of St. Louis, and Phillips, of Vir
ginia, sre representing tbe defense, while
the proaecutloQ Is being conducted by State
A'loiney .Uewltl. To-day tbe court room
was crowded. Strong efforts will be made
to have tbe prisouer released on ball.
Among tbe eye-witnesses of tbe crime, C.
T. Benjamin, Hill Bjyle, Theo. Scbauer
and one cr two others, have been examin
ed. Tbtir testimony tends to show tbat
Walton bad no provocation and tbe effort to
set up a theory of self defense was generally
regarded as a failure. Tbe tragedy grew
out of Walton's alleged undue Intimacy
tritb his victim's wife.

ble, for fear of lynching.

Nrw York, Jau. 4. For a week past
rumors have been current in Wall street
snd elsewhere that Henry Villard bas re
tired a poor mac from the head of the
enterprises be controlled. It bas been
asserted tbat bis entire fortune bas !eeo
exhausted In aiding tbe completion
of the Northern Pacific road, in su
taining its credit, aud in making good
tbe losses of some of his friends, or rat ler
in assuming tb j Investments iu his com
panies thet they have made. While these
reports bave been more or less confirmed
by some of bN associates, none ot them
bave been willing to appear aa sutuonty for
the correctness of tne reports until yester
day. As late as Wednesday evening,
Mr. Artemus H. Holmes, Mr. Vil
lard 's counsel and attorney, declined to
speak regarding tbe nutter.' Yesterday
Mr. Horace While, one of Mr. Vil
lard's most Intimate friends, said tbat be
would confirm tbe truth of the reports
mentioned upon condition that bis name
should not be u-ted. His sttentlon was
called to tbe reports circulated tbat Mr.
Vl'lard bad secured property, while every
body else bad lost in tbe Northern Pacific
enterprises, and it was suggested to bim
tbat, if the opposite were true, Mr. Vii
lard's friends, in Justice to him, might
consider it their duty to say so in a
manner that would admit of no question.
Thereupon Mr. White said tbat be desired
to consult with Mr. Holmes before making
any statement. Heveral hours afterward
Mr. Wu.te said ot the report that Mr. Vil
lard had lost bis fortune, "1 am authorised
to say tbat it is substantially correct." At
Mr. Villard's office be was reported to have
been better yesterday tban forseveral days,

A SI RAXGE 8TORT
Of the Hausrlng of a French Sailor on
, 4 ' v an Ataaerlcan Snip.
tA" A -
I. Bottom, Jan,' 4. A Portuguese tailor
nameit josepL'Antonio, woo arrived at the
Mariner's Home, in this city, a day or two
ago from New York, in which city he land
ed on Dec. 26, on board tbe schooner Hope
Gower, a Philadelphia vessel, from Mexico,
tells a most extraordinary ani sensational
story about transactions which he witnessed
while oo tbe bigh seas. A reporter found
bim at tbe Mariner's Home to-day, and,
after some preliminary talk, the old sailor
wss gradually drawn out, and bis story
was found to be a most remarkable one.
Briefly told it Is substantially as fol
lows: My name Is Joseph Antonio, and I am
a Portuguese, belonging in tbe Western
Islands. I shipped as steward on board
tbe scuoouer Hope Gower, Capt. Allen,
from Philadelphia, September 29th, at
Pensacola. Another seaman at tbe same
time was 'Sbanghaid' on hoard tbe Gower
from a German bark, and we were both as
signed to duty, be going before tbe must
snl 1 in the commissary. Tbe schooner, I
was told, was returning from a Mexican
port where she bad discharged a cargo of
coal and bad put into Pensacola to await
orders. Almost Immediately
AFTER GOING ABROARD
orders were received to go to Mexico I
could never remember the name of the
port and take a cargo ofmshogoiiy forNew
York. We immediately set sail, and after
being out three or four days the mate or
dcred one seaman, a Frenchman named
Antolne, to bring up a bucket of water
from the batch. Wben tbe seaman came
on deck, he accidentally spilled some of tbe
water on the floor, and this so exasperated
tbe mate that be struck tbe sea
man u. several blows on the face,
causing blood to flow from bis nose.
On the following morning (Frtday), when
about 200 miles from Pensacola, the
Frenchman, after receiving his rations,
took his turn at the watch. This was about
7:30 o'clock. Ahout 8 o'olock I saw tbe
mate, who bad a lamp In bis band, go
down tbe forwsrd batch, and as be did so
he ordered the Frenoiiman to follow bim.
As soon as tbey went down the batches,
which up to this time bad been left open,
were closed, and I thought tbls every
strange affair, especially so wben the
Frenchman did not
comb on deck again.
I knew tbat some of the crew were in tbe
hoid when tbe mate and the Frenchman
went down. Tbe captain all this tiruo, I
know, was not with tbem, as I saw him
after near tbe man at tbe wheel. Soon
after going below tbe mate and crew re
turned, but. tbe Frenchman did not come
back, and tbe batches were not opened.
About seven bells, or at 11:30 o'olock, some
one asked where tbe Frenchman was, and
the remark was made, significantly, "Per
haps ho ts asleep In tbe hold forward. Tbe
batches were then opened and a rope was
hauled up, and to my horror suspendeTTt
the end of the rope as it wss drawn up was
the lifeless body of the seaman with a
noose adjusted about bli neck.
He was laid upon tbe deck, and after tbo
entire crew had gathered about tbe body
was picked up and pitched overboard.
Wben tbe vessel put Into tbe Mexican port
papers were furnished to the American
consul to the effeot that tbe seamen bad
hung himself while on tbe trip from Pensa
cola, but It does uot seem that tbe counsel
was told tbat when tbe body was baulsd on
deck tbe hands were lashed benlnd the
body. I had no chance to go ashore, and
Wben I landed In New York I was paid oft
and discharged, and when leavlug tue ves
sel, tbe captain laid to me, Steward, take
are of yourself.' I came dlreotly to Bos
ton and have Informed tbe Judge of tk
United (jutes oovvt." i
Nashvilu, Teun., Jan. 4. A falsi
d.ftVulty occurred In Black bottom yetier
day between two negroes John Jenitngs
snd Cbus. Boyd. Jennings was employed
at barkeeper, and Boyd bad threatened to
indict Lira for selling liquor on Suaday.
About 12 o'clock yesterday Boyd went Into
Jennings' saloon snd began to abuse him.
Jennings told Boyd if be did not leave he'd
put him out. Boyd defied bim, and In the
subsequent scuflle out Jennings on tbe
band and hastily left. In the evening be
returned, as be said, to ''do up tbat nig
ger Jennings." Tbey met on tbe sidewalk,
wben Boyd saldi "I cut you this morn
mg, and new I am going to kill you," at
tbe same time making a lunge with
knife. Jennings dodged tbe attack, and
then drawing a revolver fired twice, the
ecoi d ball passing through Boyd's brain,
fttuslng almost Instant death. Boyd was
know n as a negro desperado. Black bot
tom, where the tragedy occurred, Is s

Well, those relating to tbe employment

Now a revision of the tariff without a fur

be no revision at all. It would be like tbo
