STREAMS OF BLOOD!
Plowing Down Through the Lower
Corridor of the United States
Sanguinary Leave-Taking of the Chief
OompUer in the Architect's
A Valorous Scotchman's Vindication of
His Reputation Master of the
Washington, D. C, March 1. While
Secretary Folger was engaged this morn
ing In dictating letters to his private sec
retary, he was startled by the sound of a
feminine shriek In the ball and the wild
clatter of a pair of French boot heels.
Then his door was burst open without
any ceremony by a pale-faced woman In
black, a clerk In the Treasury, who came
with the announcement that some of the
clerks were engaged in murdering each
other In the Supervising Architect's of
fice. She announced in a most tragic man
ner that she had seen with uerown start
led eyes one man's throat cut and that a
stream of blood was flowing down through
the lower corridor. After making this an
nouncement she showed signs of fainting
in the private Secretary's arms. The
uproar in the Architect's office was so
great for four or five minutes that
none of the colored aides-de-camp ven
tured nearer than the stairs above it. For
a time a wild panic prevailed throughout
the Treasury, and public business was
suspended for ten or fifteen minutes. The
occasion of all the uproar was the formal
leave-taking of Mr. Thompson, the Chief
Compiler in the Architect's ollice.
Thompson Is a very till, broad
shouldered, hot-headed Scotchman. He
was the especial friend of Hill when he
was Architect. Bell, the present Archi
tect, made up his mind a few weeks" ago
to remove Thompson. The latter be
iiki.l's mind was poisoned
against him by some of the conspirators
who were anxious to have him out of the
way so they could secure promotion, lie
was engaged by the Potomac Red Sandstone
Company', but this soothing business fact
did not appear to satisfy him. When he
entered the olflce this morning he an
nounced that as a farewell ceremony he
proposed to thrash all the clerks In the
ofllce so as to make sure of punishing
those who had slandered him. He bexau
with J. C. ltlackwell and L. J. Fentou.
He accused Blackwell of slandering him,
and in the course of an animated conver
sation which followed he knocked Black
well down under the desk. Fenton then
threw a stone paper weight at Thompson,
anticipating by a few seconds the thrash
ing that was coming to him by his turn.
The throwing of the cube hastened
his punishment. In this last strug
gle a quart bottle of red ink was thrown,
striking Thompson on the head. It broke,
and the red fluid streamed down the
side of his face and flowed down the cor
ridor. It was the sight of this ink which
so frightened the female clerk, who ran
screaming "murder" to the Secretary.
After the two clerks had been laid out on
the floor Thompson grabbed a pole used
fur lowering window sh;ijes and charged
iu the direction of the other flying clerks,
who took refuge under desks orelse stam
peded down the corridors. Thompson
finding no one willing to confront him,
very soon cooled off. He announced, with
a chuckle, that he hoped this would be a
good lesson to future slanderers and
quietly resumed the duties of his desk.
He was not disturbed again during the
day. His farewell appearance in the Ar
chitect's ollice is one that will be long re
membered. The Philadelphia Fire -Losses and In

Washington-, March 1. Walter O.
Burleigh, ex-Delegate to Con?res from
Dakota, was before the Ilou-e Com
mittee on Expenditures, and testified
regarding the various practices of the
otlicers in Dakota and Montana, respon
sible to the Department of Justice. He
said he had heard of officers arresting
men on trivial charges in remote parts of
the Territory, and taking them to the
places of holding court for the purpose
of getting fees; thought the expenses
of Marshals and courts generally should
not have been more than half what they
were last year. The witness referred to
the personal habits of Judge Conger, of
Montana, who was suspended last April,
and super-eded by Judge Cobtirn, of In
diana. He said theprivate life of Conger
was that of a drunkard. He fre
quently went upon the bench
after " a night of debauchery
and slept in his chair with his feet upon
the desk, while an important case was ou
trial. Mr. Millikeu, of the committee,
objected to such testimony, as it reflected
upon the private habits of a man now iu
private life. The witness referred to the
great delay in bringing men to trial, and
thought the delay had cost Custer Countv
Chief Justice Shannon of Dakota, who
investigated the conduct of Judge Con
ger, testified substantially the same as

.TiiiNKifAT,Marchl. General Graham's
forces marched a mile beyond Fort Baker
yesterday. The Rebels were constantly
skirmishing under the advance gu ird du
ring the morning. Suddenly a large force
of rebels concealed among the scrub on
the sandy knolls, opened a heavy fire on
the. British troops who had bivouacked on
tlieiicld, thoroughly drenched by a trop
ical rain. General Graham Immediately
ordered the troops to form In an oblong
square, which had hardly been done
When the rebels advanced under a heavy
vhich did little damage ; but before
rrnrhlng to within pistol shot range of the
BrOioh hue, they wheeled about and re
th"d, when Graham Immediately ordered
an advance on the rebel positions on the
knolls. The rebels then gave-battle and
fought with tremendous bravery, but were
beaten on all sides, the firing of the British
telliug fearfully on the enemy. The rebels
stubbornly contested every inch of ground,
and frightful slaughter ensued, the battle
being very similar to that of Ululdi and
tho British victory as complete as in that
affair. The battle lasted all day, when
the rebels retreated in disorder, leaving
1,000 men killed and wounded on the field.
The British lost only ten killed and forty
At 9 :30 a gunboat fired from Trinkltat,
but tho shells burst a mile short of the
enemy's position. The cavalry and
mounted Infantry advanced on the left to
touch the rebels, who moved obstinately,
though not indisposed to fight the in
fantry, which continued to advance
steadily. Two br'thrce times a halt was
made to allow the sailors aud artillerymen
dragging the guns to rest. The road to
ward Teb was studded with hundreds of
corpses of Baker Pasha's fugitives, filling
the air with pollution, and around which
swarms of carrion flies hovered. After
advancing thre miles the earth-works of
the rebels came lu sight. Guns were.
mounted and standards were flying. The
J bdi tire. had now almost ceased, except
on the extreme right aud left. The
British stepped forth as if on holiday
parade, playing bagpipes, and the High
landers footing cheerily. They advanced
until within 8u0 yards of the rebels' posi
tion, where was an old sugar mill sur
rounded by a number of huts and where
two guns were situated. Here a halt was
ordered, and the scouts rejoined
the cavalry. Neither force seemed
disposed to open fire. At last, "Atten
teutiou!" was called, whereupon the
rebels seeing the British move, began
the battle with shell from a Krupp
pun, which passed wide over the square.
The next shots were
AIMED WITH GREATER ACCURACY
and the shells burst close to the British,
woundingseveral. The rebels maintained
a rattling fusilade with small arms. As
the shots increased the ambulance sur
geons were fully occupied. The English
advanced steadily in the square with
out answering the rebel fire until they
passed the north face of the rebel
works. At tliis point a piece of
shell wounded Baker Pasha, and twenty
meu were hit. After an echelon of
l.iioo yards a halt was ordered aud the
in, u directed to lie down. It was now
noonday, clear, and the wind dispersed
the smoke of the rebel Are, disclosing the
Then the British opened fire and the
rebel tire rapidly slackened. An advance
was at once ordered. The troops rose
mid approached the rebels' works. The
rebels were in no military order, but they
held their position desperately. There
were two thousand of them in front and
hundreds of them on the sides
of the square. As the British
advanced, tiring, the rebels arose
within two hundred yards of thein
and rushed headlong with spears upon
the British line. They fell dead to the
right and left. None of them bolted, but
fell back sullenly. Having cleared the
ground In front the British attacked Fort
Buruaby, and carried it after a desperate
tight. They turned two Krupp guns
againt the enemy, but the Arabs contested
every inch. The British then stormed
the brick building, and at one o'clock the
rebels bolted, the gatling guns and Mar
tini rifles creating great havoc among
them. The English forces advanced to
the well at Teb, where the rebels made
their last stand. After
foih hours' arduous nan ting
the British gained possession of the
rebels' camp. The cavalry charged the
retreating rebels, who did not bolt, but
gave tnc troopers blow for blow. The
enemy retreated slowly and the British
kept up their lire. General Graham do
cided to pass the night at Teb Wells. The
advance on Tokar will be made to-day.
London, March 1. Special dispatches

Tab. lie has retaken a large amount of
baggage captured by the rebels from the
expedition under Baker Pusha, "together
with four Krupp guns and a large
number of small arms. It is General
fiiiiham's intention to march on Tokar
to-day, where he expected the fight
ing would be renewed, as the fortifica
tions In that vicinity will enable the
rebels to offer a determined resistance.
The enemy showed great courage during
the fight yesterday. When the British
troops moved upon their position they
refused to run, but fought to tho death,
until Anally compelled to give way to
the superior military discipline of the
British troops, whose accurate firing
rapidly diminished their number.
THE NEWS IN LONDON.
London, March 1. 11 a. m, The
news of General Graham's victory
over the rebel forces under Osman Digna
In the Soudan yesterday caused Immense
enthusiasm. The complete subjugation
of El Mahdi is now freely predicted on all
sides, and the opinion is freely expressed
that the Government should reconquer
the whole Soudan before makiug terms
with the rebels.
The dynamite plots have ceased to be a
toplo of conversation. Notwithstanding
the fact that the police have found an In
fernal machine in the Ludgate Street
railway station, very little attention is
paid to it, the public being entirely en
grossed with the news of the brilliant vic
tory of the forces under General Graham.

tents of the pistol among the packets.
AN ENGLISH TRIBUTE TO AN AMERICAN
London, March 1. Thomas Brooks'
memorial bust of Longfellow was to-day
unveiled aud placed in a conspicuous
angle in the Poet's Corner, between the
busts of Chaucer and Dryden, in West
minster Abbey. It beHrs the following
inscription, left by Dean Stanley: "This
bust is placed among the memorials of
English poets by English admirers of the
American poet" A large number of
promiuent persons were present during

the bust, touehingly alluding to the many
noble qualities of America's great poet
and- the high esteem In which he was
held by the people of Great Britain.
Minister Lowell accepted the bust in the
name of the American people. He said
Longfellow was by nature a holy man;
the ground in which he was buried was
so consecrated by his good work that no
unclean spirit doth enter its sacred pre
ciucts. He concluded his address by
thanking the English people for the honor
conferred upon America's favorite poet.
Queenstown, March 1. The White

Gerster's Baby and Mapleaon's Tears.
Denver, Col., March 1. There was a
beggarly array of empty benches In Ta
bor's gorgeous Opera-house last night
when Mapleson's company gave La Son
nambula with Gerster in the principal
part. The receipts for the performance
was not more than 1,000. Tho indica
tions are that the sale of tickets for
Patti's Traviata matinee to-day will
not exceed 3,000. The papers have en
ergetically accused the management of
extortion iu charging live dollars to hear
Gerster and seven dollars to hear Pattl.
Gerster Is tired of the trip. She seated
herself in her private car saying the baby
was ill again and that she was going back
to New York to see it. Colonel Mapleson
pursued her from the hotel on a fiery
operatic steed, threw himself upon his
knees at her feet and with tears lu his
eyes prevailed upon her to march on with
his expedition across the Rocky Moun
tains. AU Quiet at Hot Springs.
Chicago, III., March 1. The Asso
ciated Press is In receipt of a telegram
from Hot Springs, Ark., signed by the
Postmaster, the Superintendent of the

visitors from various parts of the United
States, including E. B. Washburne, of
Illinois, denying tho existence of
any such state of the civic affairs as

Springs on February 27. These dis
patches stated that the town was con
trolled by a Committee of F'ourtcen;
that law was practically suspended, and
that drunken rowdies paraded the streets.
The telegram denial further says that the
place Is as quiet as any in the country,
aud that good order prevails.
