Fatal Illness Had In Origin la the Ex

bate with Secretary Hoke Smith.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23. Ex-Speaker
Charles F. Crisp died at 2:15 p. m. He
had been at a private sanitarium here
for 60 days.
The serious illness of ex-Speaker
Crisp and the probability of its termi-
Ex-Speaker Charlti F. Critp.
sating fatally have been known to his
intimate friends for some time, but
bare only been spoken of confiden
tially. His ailment took its origin in
the excitement arising- out of his
joint debate with Secretary Hoke
Smith last summer, when he was
forced to withdraw from that de- !
bate for physical reasons, his friend j
persuaded him to enter a sani- j
tarium for treatment. He was !
subject to heart disease. Reassuring j
reports as to recovered health have j
9nini(ul finm t!iiu 1...,
have been larm-lr ,li.nt.l J.,. th.,JL
fully informed as to the facts.
Mr. Crisp was one of the best-liked
men in congress. He commanded the
resjHict of friends and opponents by
liis abilities and his generally unruf
fled judicial fairness, which was
broken upon only once or twice, dur
ing the bitter controversy with
Speaker Ueed over the Heed rules.
He was born in Sheiliuld, England,
where his parents had gone on a visit,
in 1345, and this fact took him out of
the category of vice-presidential p s
fcibiluies when some years ago
bis name was suggested for that
office. He was brought to the
United States before he was a year
old, was educated in Savannah and
Macon, Ga., served in thu confederate
army and was made prisoner. He
was admitted to the bar iu 130t"; bs
came successively state solicitor,
judge, congressman and speaker ol
the house of representatives in the
fifty-second and fifty-third con
gresses. His congressional career in
the lower house extended over 14
years, and he was the choice of his
party for the United States senate
when he died.
DUN'S COMMERCIAL REVIEW.
The Sensational Advance in AVbeat the
veut of the Week.
New Yokk, Oct. 23. IL G. & Co. in
their weekly review of trade say:
Tiie event of the week has been the
sensational advance of wheat to S3
cents for cash on Thursday, a rise of
54' cents, and its fall to 77 on Thurs- I
tlay, gaming 1 on t riday. Ihe rise
was magnified by covering of specula
tive sellers who imagined the advance j
had gone too far, but was at the bot
to.n based on an extraordinary foreign
.demand, which has engaged graiu ves-
sels from all Pacific as well as Atlantic I
ports for mouths ahead. How great
the shortage in ordinary European sup
plies may be is the point of doubt and
speculation, bnt none now question
that shipments from the Pacific coast
to India and the decrease in Russian
yield are important, and the buying of
euormous quantities for export, with
engagements of freight room at higher
rates, express the belief of European
Wheat exports from the Pacific coast
are large, aud over ."OJ.OOU bushels per
i euga-' d ahe-i I for I
.'he Atlantic exports 1
day have been
some time. Ihe Atlantic expo
about 900,000 bushels larger than last
year for the week, have been, iu Octo
ber C,570.-'13 bushels, Hour included,
against 5,0ii6,3SS last year. Corn moves
largely and at lower prices, having
declined a cent for the week. Cotton
lias advanced a sixteenth to eight
cents, with only moderate transac
tions and heavy receipts from planta
tions. Estimates of the yield vary all
the way from Mr. Neills 9,000,000
bales to much less than S.OOO.OOJ, but
the impression grows that the yield
will be large.
The most striking feature of indus
trial returns is the number of con
tracts conditioned upon the election.
The movement of currency to th
interior has been only S.500,000 for
the week, and the market for commer
cial loans has been dull. The volume
of business shown by exchanges has
been 8.7 per cent less than last 3-ear
.and 9.6 per cent less than in 1S92.
Failures for the week have beeu 274

Chicago, Oct 22. Chairman Hanna
of the Republican national committee
gives to the press the following1 an
nouncement: "The manifest policy of the silvei
democratic managers in this campaign,
as set forth by their candidate foi
president shortly after his nomination,
has been to create the belief in the
minds of the working-men that they
were being coerced by their em
ployers to vote contrary to
their convictions. The chairman ol
the national committee, Hon. J. K
Jones, has emphasized this policy in a
proclamation, in which he boldlt
charges tbe employing classes of the
ntry with having entered into a
into votincf contrary to their ouin-
This is a very grave charge, and il
has now assumed a form that justified
giving it some attention. It is an in
tiult both to employer and employe.
We do not believe that one is despotic
enough to attempt to coerce, or that
the other is so cringing as to be co
erced. Employes and employers art
all free Aineric.m citizens, knowing
their rijjhts and capable of asserting
and maintaining them. To coerce a
voter is a crime against the laws of the
land, and if Messrs. Bryan and Jonei
know of coercion they make them
selves accomplices of the criminals bt
not informing the proper authoritiei
and taking steps for prosecution.
It has been the policy of the repub
l:..-.. ..: :
protect every citizen in the exercise ol
his elective franchise, and it will stil:
adhere to that policy. While we con
sider the charge absurd, and believt j
that American workingmen and em
ployers are too independent and patri !
otic to be coerced or to coerce, tbe re j
publican committee will do anything j
! in its Power to Protect workin-men it
the free and untranimeled exercise oi
their rights as citizens, and will cheer- j
fully unite with the national demo j
era tie committee iu any movement
having that object in view. Coercion
of voters is not only an un-American, I
unpatriotic and despotic usurpation of
the rights of free citizens, but
it is a wrong that will in j
tvitably recoil upon its perpe
tratois. It is au arbitrary use ;
of power tiiat is in direct conflict witk
the principles of our government. ;
The civil compact of majority ruli j
means free majorities, for whose pro i
tection all constitutional poweri ;
! should be used, and without which a j
j political victory would be barrer i
! of results worthy of a great parly.
This couiuiitti-c will spare no pains tc
secure to every citizen, whatever his
politic-", the right to cast his vote ac
cording to his convictions and to have
his vote honestly counted."

train robbery at 5:40 o'clock last even

Xo. 43 was held up by four bandits,
who compelled the engineer to use his
coal hammer to break open a safe.
One of the robbers went through the
passenger cars pretending to take a

This is the second time that a Chi

The train was in charge of Copdu-c-tor

it was flagged. Welton reversed his
engine and brought the train to a
stanstill in the midst of the cut It
was pitch dark. Ho looked out from
his cab to ascertain the trouble when
a gruff voice commanded him to get
out of the cub and be quick about it
Welton looked into the muzzle of a
shotgun and obeyed. Fireman Tost
did likewise. Two more men emerged
from the darkness and mounted
the engine. One of them picked
uo the fireman's coal pick.
The engineer and fireman were
then marched to the express car.
Messenger Andy Shields was com
manded to open up. He at first re
fused, but finally complied when con
vinced that Post's life was in danger.
The bandits then entered the car,
rifled the money packages, securing
$300 and a quantity of jewelry. The
llolllup occl.pied altogether about five
minutes. The passengers knew noth
of it until long after the engine had
been cut loose.

Alarco Polo's Description of the Yak and
the Musk Deer.
There are wild cattle in that country
almost as big as elephants, splendid
creatures, covered everywhere but on
the back with shaggy hair a good four
palms long. They are partly black,
partly white, and really wonderfully
fine creatures, and the hair or wool is
extremely fine and white, finer and
whiter than silk. Messer Marco brought
some to Venice as a greatcuriosity, and
so it was reckoned by those who saw
it. There are also plenty of them tame,
which have been caught young. These
the people use commonly for burden
and general work, and in the plow as
well; and at the latter they will do full
twice as much work as any other cattle,
being such very strong beasts.
In this country, too, is found the best
musk in the world; and I will tell you
how it is produced. There exists in
that region a kind of wild animal like
a gazelle. It has feet and tail like the
gazelle's, and stag's hair of a very
coarse kind, but no horns. It has four
tusks, two below, and two above, about
three inches long, and slender in form,
one pair growing upward, and the other
downward. It is a very pretty creature.
The musk is found in this way. When
the creature has been taken, they find
between the flesh and the skin some
thinglike an imposthume full of blood,
which they cut out and remove with all
the skin attached to it. And the blood
inside this imposthnme is the musk that
produces that powerful perfume. There
is an immense number of these beasts
in the, country we are speaking of. The
flesh is very good to eat. Messer Marco
brought the dried head and feet of one
of these animals ro Venice with him.
The people are traders and artisans,
and also grow abundance of corn. The
province has an extent of EG days'
journey. Pheasants are found twice
ns big as ours, indeed nearly as big as a
peacock, and having tails of seven to
ten palms in length; and ln-sides them
other pheasants in aspect like our own,
nd birds of many other kinds, and of
beautiful variegated plumage. The peo
ple, who are idolators, are fat folks
with little noses and black hair, and no
beard, except a few hairs on the upper
lip. The women too have very smooth
end white skins, and in every respect
are pretty creatures. Noah P.rooks. i'r
A Oucer Family.
On the farm of Amos M. ColIinK, near
ilainbridge, O., dwells in undisturbed J
bliss a most curiously assorted family,
presided ever by a demure house cat
Several weeks ago Tabby gave birth to j
a pair of healthy kittens, who, in the
course of events, grew apace. When old
enough to get about they went on a
foraging expedition in a woods near by,
accompanied by the mother. In their
peregrination they discovered a gray
squirrel's nest in which twoyoungsquir
rels lay sleeping. The curiosity of the
kittens was aroused and they soon
made friends with the squirrels. Their
overtures wore received in the same
spirit, and while the mother cat sat con
tentedly on a log kittens and squirrels
enjoyed a frolic. When it finally be
came dusk the cat took one of the
squirrels in her mouth and carried it
to the farm, returning for the other
one in a few minutes. The squirrels
are now safely housed with the kittens,
and the cat watches over the children of
her adoption as carefully as- over her
own offspring. Cincinnati Enquirer.
Stnnfr to Death.
While plowing a field in the parish
of Tierce, near Angers, a laborer named
Gilbert had the misfortune to overturn
a wasps' nest. Immediately the swarm
rose and settled on Gilbert, whose head,
and arms were covered with the pesti
lent insects. The man's wife, who was
working by his side, was also badly
stung, and was rendered quite incapa
ble of going to her husband's assist
ance. When the wasps were finally
driven off it was ascertained that the
peasant had ceased to live, and it is
thought one of the swarm must have
entered his mouth and stung him so
that he died from suffocation. London
