a year they owed the Hocking Valley a
cool 5100,000 profit under the pooling ar

guilty of murder and suffered the penalty

confession of the murder.
Certain parties hiiw Lowder on thu

these persons could not be Induced to

convulsion of the earth In Long Island
Sound directly off this harbor, or near
Ijv, lor at a quarter past eleven o'clock a
tidal wave, crowned with foam, and fully
eig.it feet high, came roiling Into the bay
from the south, traversing tho entire
length of the harbor, which is four miles
long. It had a speed of about twelve
nnles an hour, and moved with an oniiu-

It was dark and cold and rainy at the
tune, un 1 a light log, which has beeu
growing denser ever since, was forming.
It is impossible to ascertain the full ex
tent of the damage done. There are 200
vessels iu the harbor bound eastward.
The first one to take the force of the
mysterious wave was the sclioouer Nellie
Grant, bound lrom Jersey City to Ports
mouth, x. 11., with coal. The wave
struck her with such force as to tear the
win Mass oi, and part the chains on both
her anchors, s.veeping her away to the
north. The Captain hastily rigged sail
enough to keep steerage-way, and picked
his way with dilllculty through the fleet to
the inner harbor, where she Is now re
pair'ng. Near astern of the Grant lay tho
schooner Unrest, a Providence vessel,
bound home from Hobokeii with coal.
Une of the vessel's crew heard a loud
roaring sound, and throwing on his
clothes rushed to the d. ck. Just as he
did so, a wall of water struck the bow of
the schooner, breaking over her and fill
ing her full of water, l'rom the great
weight of her load, the vessel did not re
spond and so literally buried herself.
The Captain was creatly alarmed, and
realized that unless the vessel parted

A Now Way of Paying an Old Debt-In-doners
Sr. Loiirt, Mo,, December 23. Tho
new Llndell Hotel Company, formed In
1872, filed suit to-day against Vincent and
Cathai'iiio Marmaduke. Plaintiff euinw
that Mrs. Marnmduko executed, some
years ago, a $73,000 note, which was in
dorsed by the company. Owing t Mrfl
Miirumdtike's failure to pay up th,. hist (,(
the sums duo on the note, the Llndell
Hotel property, mortgaged by the terms
ol the note, was foreclosed ou and sold on
November 4th. Tho balance duo on tho
note was then 51 1.UJK, and though tho
property Is worth half a million, It was
knocked down to Mrs. Marmaduke's own
bid of 23,0U0. Plaintiff. urge that the
Indebtedness was that of tho lady named,
that they never received a dollar of tho
money obtained ou the note, or owed any
thing except a endorsers. They add
that Mrs. Marmaduke, in paying the said
Indebtedness by the purchase of the prop,
erty, she did no more than she was In
honor bound to, and that It Is against both
equity and good conscience that by such
purchase she should deprive plaintiff's of
the property and hold it as her own. It
Is therefore pmod that Mrs. Marinadiiko
be divested ol the legal title to the hotel
property now held by her and that tho
same be recoiiveyed to plaintiffs.
