Tell of the Affair.

a laborer of Norwood, was walking to his
home along Bloody Run, near t his city,
at 8 o'clock in the afternoon, when he saw
three piles of clothing lying on the bank
of the stream. No owners being visible,
Schmutte waited in curiosity, when he
was horrified by seeing a human limb rise
above the surface of the water aud then
disappear. Schmutte, with a pole, wailed
into the stream and soon found the bodies
of three boys who had been drowned. He
carried the bodies to the bank, and hail
ing a passerby sent word to the authori
ties. The corDses were bromrht to the morrrne
in this city. There they were identified as
Mail and lil Slatterly, aged 11 and 13
respectively, aud Frank Burns, aged 10,
all residing on Symms street. Their
parents belong to tho laboring classes.
The three boys, with two others, Fred
JlcGrann and John Burns, had gone
swimming. The two hist named came,
home with scared faces, but said nothing
of the terrible tragedy until after the find
ing of the bodies. The scene at the

Washington, Aug. 14. The steja
taken by .Representative Blair of New
Hampshire to secure congressional inves
tigation through the commissioner of la
lor of the general punishment by lynch
ing of colored men who are supposed to
have outraged women, are stirring up an
unexpected degree of interest. Since the
resolution was introduced great numbers
of communications on the subject have
come to .Mr. Blair, although but ten days
have passed since the matter was mudc
Most of the letters are from religious
bodies and organizations of colored peo
ple. The colored people both north anil
south seem to lie greatly interested in the
proposition and resolutions have come
from meetings held at New York and New
Orleans and many cities between those
two. It is not expected that the investi
gation will lie undertaken during this ses
sion of congress, but probably will be
begun early next session provided, of
course, the house votes to have it under
taken. (iiif on Was a Missourian.

Cowes, Aug. 14. The race between the
Vigilant nud Brittauia, tiitecu miles out
to sea and return, has been r.rranged. A
hitch took place at first, Gould desiring to

the Brittauia the advauiage if the wiud
should not prove true.
