Htrlfco st Chicago.
Chicago 111., Oct. 6. The strike of
street car conductors, drivers and ca
ble grip men on the North Side was
inaugurated according to programme
at 6 o'clock this morning. No cars
are running on the entire north divis
ion. The sidewalks have been tilled
with .pedestrians headed for the busi
ness portion of the city since an early
hour this morning. Express wagons
and rattle traps of all descriptions on
which temporary seats have been hxed
and are being run by the strikers and
others, and are patronised to their full
est capacity. Thus far no violence
on the part of the strikers has been
reported and none is expected. Much
bitter feeling against President Yerkers
and the cable road syndicate, gowing
out of the poor service rendered by
them to their patrons, has been
brought to a focus by the strike and
the public comment resulting is not
favorable to the company.

Rnfe Ray Dead.
Last week we made local mention
of the fact that some one had "done
up" Section Boss Rufe Ray, of the
Harris creek section on the St. L. A.
& T. railway, and for a fact he was
"done up." On Thursday night, the
27th ult., Ray was struck on the head
by some one with some kind of stick,
iron or other instrument of death, with
sufficient force to cause his death,
Avhich occurred the next night. Jus-
tice Mills held the inquest over the
dead body oi Kay baturday morning,
29th ult., and rendered his verdict
that deceased came to his death from
the effects of the wound received on
the fatal night. Many current rumors
were afloat a's to who did the killing,
but Justice Mills tailed to elicit, any
thing from the witnesses definite
enough on which to make an airest.
Dr. J. M. Lillard, of South Bosque,
who attended Ray in his last hours,
made affidavit in Waco Monday, be
fore Justice Sleeper, charging Jack
Cavet, of Comanche Springs, with the
crime. Deputy Sheriff Dan Ford ar-
rested Cavet late in the day Monday
and placed him in jail. The grand
jury is in session and the matter will
be sifted to its bottom. The action
of the grand xtf will be awaited
with much anxiety by many. Mc
Chicago, Oct. 7. There airived at
the Palmer house Tuesday, October 2,
a middle aged gentleman, evidently
English, accompanied by a decidedly
handsome young lady, 16 or 17 years
of age. He registered as Dr. E. Rob
bins and daughter, Los Angeles, Cal.
They were assigned to room 364.
That evening Dr. Robbins paid his
bill, and accompanied by the girl, left
the hotel last night. Latethe sought1
the assistance of the police o recover
his daughter, who he claimed had been
spirited away by the agents of a wo
man's protective association. He says
that several years ago he parted from
his wife in Enjjland and came to this
country, drifted to Montana, Idaho,
finally to California, where he amassed
a fortune. His wife in the meantime
had secured a divorce. Learning of
this, Dr. Robbins sent for his daughter
and met her in New York. He claims
that some unknown person telegraph
ed her that the girl was not his daugh
ter; out that he was leading her astray.
Two days ago a woman called on the
girl, and she has not seen her since,
Dr. Robbins did not explain where he
had been stopping since the day he
left the Palmer house. Search amorig
all the leading hotels last night failed
to locate the doctor. Mrs. Dye, clerk
cf the protective association, desires
any knowledge of the man or girl,

A Snake Colled Aronud aSIau'a Xeck.
Greenville, Texas, , Oct. 6. Mr.
Stufflenbean of this county on Wed-,
nesday last went to his well, a distance
of some 200 yards from his dwelling
to replenish his waterbucket. The
water being drawn and the bucket
filled, just as Mr. Stufflebean stooped
over to set the bucket on the ground,
a large black snake which lay coiled
upon the branch of a tree projecting
just above the man and within a few
feet dropped from the tree upon his
neck and in an instnat almost was coil
ed about his neck. Mr. Stufilebean
called for help as long as he could;
but this was not long, as upon his
second atternpt to use his voice he was
frustrated, for the scrpei.t had tighten
ed itself about his throat that the lit
tle shout he was able to make was in
audiable. In his desperation he caught
the snake around the neck, and with
a well nigh maddened effort gradually
1 loosened its tight embrace. It by de
grees relaxed ;its hold. On tearing it
from his neck he threw it on the
ground and ran towards his house.
He was so weak and exhausted by
this time that he was compelled to
stop and rest. At this juncture his
bi other seeing him and knowing from
his actions that something was wrong'
went to meet him. It was sometime
after the brother reached him before
Mr. Stufflebean could explain his ter
