ted suicide yesterday morning at 10
o'clock by taking strychnine, at her
home on her father's farm, about a
mile r"d a half south of this place. A
doctor of this city was bent for and
found her in the lat convulsions from
the deadly drug, and arrived too late
to remedy matters. The lady's father
arrived before she became uncon
scious and she told him that she had
taken the drug with the intention of
kiUing herself. No cause can be at
tributed to this rash act, as she and
her husband were on the best of terms.
The lady had the ni fortune to lose
her "baby a short time ago and since
tjien has been very despondent, and
it is supposed from the above cause
she committed suicide.

Washington, Aug. 28. The state
department has received from Minis
ter Hubbard at Tokio an account of
a trip recently taken by F. S.J Mans
field, secretary of the United States
legation to the scene of the disasters
of the volcanic eruption of the moun
tain of Bandosean in tne province 01
Iwashiro. The latter states the first
disturbance was noticed on July 15
and was followed by three earthquake
shocks, all ten minutes apait. Then
a loud explosion took place, accom
panied by another terrific trembling.
The air -became filled with black
ashes and suffocating sulphurous dust.
Many persons were killed in the great
panic which ensued, while others died
of suffocation. At 4 o'clock in the
afternoon the eruptions, which lasted
seven hours, entirely ceased. The
number of lives last was fifty eight,
and only twenty bodies have been re
covered. The imperial government
has established a hospital for the care
of the wounded in the villages sur
rounding the mountains. The ma
jority of the houses were thrown
down, the rice crop has been ruined
and land will probably never be fit for

Houston, Tex., Aug. 28. For some
weeks the citizens of the fifth ward
have been protesting against the allow
ing of convicts to work in the city
limits. This morning Mayor Smith
called upon Judge E. P. Hill, general
attorney of the Southern Pacific rail
way company, for the purpose of no
tifying him ot the action taken by the
council last night with reference to the
banishment of convict labor from the
city limits. This had special reference
to the working of such gang on the
Texas and New Orleans line in the
fifth ward in the vicinity of .the stock
pens. Judge Hill informed Mayor
Smith that an order had already
been issued to remove the convicts
outside the corporate limits of Hous

Pittsburgh, Pa., Aug. 28. Thomas
P, Brady, of the general executixe
board of the Knights of Labor, spent
several hours in this city to-day. He
says that he is not going to be s can
didate for re-election and that he will
not accept if he is chosen and that he
is firmly of the opinion that it would
be the best thing for the Knights of
Labor if Mr. Powderly and all the
members of the general executive
board should retire and give new blood
chance. "The Knights of Labor,"
said he, "has not been making any
progress during the past year, and
there are many causes for it, any one
of which might be cited as the princi
pal cause. Bad methods on the part
of the principal officeri , or rather, no
method at a'!, has been one cause.
Labor organizations must be, to live,
active and aggressive. The Knights
of Labor have lost ground during the
past year. It has the dry rot, and has
it bad, and this is why I think it would
be best for everybody drawing a salary
from Powderly down, to step out and
give some one else a chance. It is
well enough to talk about not having
any .strikes or boycotts, but there are
times when they" are effective. We
are living in an age when we must
adapt our selves to circumstances."
