Chicago, MayiT V. M. Atkinson, an
Eugli-h trawler wLo was at the Leland
yesterday, Ims recently visited Moscow
and other Kuian cities. He declares
that the Jews are persecuted most cruelly,
and portrays a riot where a dozen Jewish
infants were torn from their mothers'
arms an i thrown into tbe streets. Mr.
Atkinson says that every stranger com
ing to Mocov who has a long nose is
obliged to go before the Russian authori
ties and prove that he is not a Jew. It
appears that the Jew cannot leave Mos
cow until they hava signed a document
stating that they have no pecuniary
obligations in the city. Mr. Atkinson
states ti:at Loadon philanthropists are
endeavorini; to get the Jews to emigrate
to the Arabian shores of the Red sea, and
negotiations have been beguu with the
Egyptian gr vernment.
A Shockingly Inhuman Traffic.
"You have no idea of the cruelty in
flicted upon the poorer classes of the
Jews," related the traveler. "For a year
or so hundreds of b.ibes hava been stolen
and shipped to various ports on the Xi.j
to be used as bait by the crocodile hunt
ers. Of course t'ney are hot all eaten up
by the animal-, but now and then one is
caught. The crocodile hunters place a
baby on the shores of the stream, and
presently u.e lazy animals come out of
their beds after the infant. When the
crocodiles &et near the little one, and
wituin shooting raugeof the hunters, who
are concealed iu the bushes, they are shot.
The little babes serve as a bait to bring
the animals on the bank.
The Government Hans the Press.
"By this means it is possible to get
many aiiinmls that could not be reached
in any other way. It has been said that
the hunters have let the crocodiles ap
proach too near the babes bsfore firing,
and their first shot being ineffectual the
little one was eaten up. At any rate
they are u-ed for bait You think it
queer that a wholesale kidnaping of ba
bies is cot noticed in the newspapers.
That is not strange. You don't know

EVIDENCE FROM THE GRAVE.
A Kepudiated Note Found by Exhum
ing a Corpse.
New Haven, Conu., May 27. A queer
story is printed here to the effect that by
the opening of a grave evidence of an un
paid note was found, involving a promi
nent person who hud denied its existence.
When the case comes into court the
identity of the principal will create a
sensation. The person iu questiou was
the guardian of two children, and became
indebted to the mother for iS) for which
he gave his note.
Faded, bnt Still Good Ivlience.
The woman died seventeen year ago,
and he thereupon claimed that the debt
had been cancelled. Kecently a relative
remembered that the note had beeu sewed
in the lining of tbe dress iu which the
woman was buried. The grave was
opened and the uote was found. It was
v;ry mucn faded, but in good enough
condition to answer as evidence.

prisoners are confined at tbe state prison.
He had sawed his iron bed in two and

name, Moline, does not appear in

wants to know why the names o
three cities were not used, or just
names of the two terminals, Davenport
and Moline. The syndicate, as has been
explained, after purchasing the Daven
port & Rock Isla: d railway company,
whose name could not be changed with
out an act of congress, consolidated all
its lines under that name, and probably
without any thoughts of causing any such
childish actions as have been manifested
by the Moline papers. It would have been
better perhaps had the Union line been
adopted as the general title, with the
