Chicaoo, Deo. 90. Max Mantuelle, a Ger
man laborer living at 10 Pleasant street, wat
killed by some unknown person in tbe base
ment of hi dwelling about 8 o'clock last
night. The assassin laid in wait for him evi
dently, and with soma heavy, sharp-pointed
instrument, probably a chisel or large dirk.
literally hacked the body into ribbons of
flesh and tsjtie. Mr. Mautuelle is practical
ly in custody, not because she is supposed to
have had auy part in the killing, but because
there is a suspicion that somebody of whom
her husliand was jealous miy have had a
hand in the crime. '
Kirty-even Cashes In the Body.
The body was taken to Spoaber'a under
taking establishment, where it was found
that no loss than fifty-seven wounds had been
made upon his body, any one of fourteen ot
which was sufficient to cause death. The
wounds were evidently made with a large
chisel or a long and very sharp knife. Just
Mow th right ear w as a terrific slash reach
ing half across the face. A second cut just
lielow this had severed the jugular vein. On
the left side of the throat were two horrible
wounds, each nearly live inches in length,
and of such depth as to nearly sever tlie head
from the body.
t are. Arms, and Handa Slashed.
Tlie fa.M was covered with cuts and
shislt4, and the arms and hands of the un
fortunate man were almost harked to pieces
tn the vain efforts to ward off the rain of
murderous blows. Another terrible cut,
dealt upward with tremendous force, had
taken nearly all the fh-sh from the outside
upper portion of the right arm, a stab two
inches wide, reaching into the luus. bad
been made just helow the right collar-bone,
and over the heart was a cut two and one
half inches, where tbe deadly knife had gone
clean through a rib, cutting it iu half, deep
into the heart.
I vl.lenre of a Desperate Mrnggle.
The liacfc of the murdered man was so cut
and chopssl as to make a literal net work of
his shirt. The murderer must have jumped
on the laxly of his victim as he lay dead on
the ti. sir, and hacked and cut away, in a
paroxysm of maniacal rage. The floor of
the cellar was deeply indented with marks
of boot heels, showing that the struggle must
have been a desperate one during the short
time it lasted.
A Revelry of Blood.
Tbe walls of the little room were smeared
and stained with blood, and even upon the
joists of the floor above were sjhU and
splotcliea made by the crimson fluid, as it
spurted from tbe severed jugular veins.
Cponsuveral piece of washing w hich hung on
a line reaching from wall to wall of the cel
lar, were marks made by the bloody bands
of the murderer as he brushed them aside
in his mad rush for the window. Upon th
bottom and sides of the little Sierture
through which he dragged the body when
hisbl.ssiy woik was done were to lie found
the plain marks of his blood-stained hands
The sash, too, was bedaubed with blood.
Theories nf Ihe Tolire.
The police last night were working upon
three theories in regard to tbeca.se. one of
which was that the work was done by a
aneak thief whom Mantuelle surprised in the
cellar; another that Bruno Eheling, a boss
rarant-er, whose attentions to Mrs. Man
tuelle have caused gossip, is the erpotrator
of the crime, and the third tliat an insane
man was resismsible, as the police thought
that no sane mau would do ao much unneces

Harrisburo, Pa., Dec. 20 The policy of
the great coal barons ot Pennsylvania in dot

state of desperation which may culminate in
mad acts of violence Hundreds of these un
fortunate men are without food or the mean
of obtaining it, aud unless the mine owner

of those place. Enforced idleness has or
ated distrust and has bred disconten t every
where. Trevorton, a prosperous village of
3.0U0 inhabitants only two months ago, now
has hardly souls within its bolder.
Aetucl hunger has forced the sople to quit
the place, leaving unpaid bills and house
rents. At Mouut Carmel thousands ot men

of affairs exists at Shainokin and in Coal
The Idle Army Increasing.
The iuiiiiUt ut idle man at each of these
place is augmented daily. The foreign ele-
uieut comjaaasj most of this idle army and
the men are in many cases becoming sullen
and angry. Through sheer fear the call for
bread was at first heeded, as the men, women
and children begged from d.sir to l.ar.
Since food has been denied them threats
of violence and murder are beard Hunga
rians and Italians bv the hundred have left
these places. Many have gone lo New York,
Philadelphia and Boston, as their friend;

tbe Atlantic cursing the "land of the free."
Twenty Hollars Per Month.
The Philadelphia and Heading Coal and
Iron company owns nearly all the mines in
Northumberland county, and the shutting
down of tbe North Franklin colliery No. 2 is
the cause of the distress at Trevorton. as it
was the only industry at that place. Minen
there during the summer and early fall were
able to earn only I J) a month. Many of
them remained with the hope that times
would get better, and when the crisis came
they were left almost penniless The Idle
men emigrated to Shainokin. only to find
that there was no employment there. Then
they went to Coal township, and sulise
quently to Mount Carmel, East district, but
encountered the same condition of thiugs.
