London, Oct. 29. Hiogo, on the island
of Hondo, Japan, has been almost entire
ly destroyed by an earthquake. Tele
graph wires are down and particulars are
hard to obtain, but it is known that a
large number of lives have been lost. At
Oskaka, a city of 350,000 inhabitants, 800
persons are known to have been killed and
thousands of buildings destroyed.
Confirmed by Later Sewk
London, Oct. 29. A private telegram
dated Hiogo, received in this city last
night, confirms the report conveyed in
former telegrams that a disastrous earth
quake sbock had occurred in Japan. This
telegram says that a severe shock was ex
perienced at Oskaka, and that the destruc
tion of life and property was very great.
So severe was the shock that a number of
houses were thrown to the ground, and
many of the occnpants were caught in the
falling buildings and crushed to death.
. Three Hundred Dead in Oskaka.
The report that 300 were killed at Os
kaka is also confirmed, and their names
are on the death list. A large number of
persons succeeded in escaping from their
(ottering homes only to meet death in the
streets to which they hid fled for safety
from the falling debris. There is no
means at present of estimating; the total
loss of life. Details are stilt meagre ow
ing to the destruction of telegraph wires.
Localt'y of the Catastrophe.
The seaport Hiogo has an extensive for
eignjand coastwise trade and a population.
In 1884,of about 40, 00:i. Oskaka is also on the
island of Hondo and on the sea, thirty
seven miles southwest of Kisto, to which
place, as well as to Hiogo and Kobe, rail
ways have been built. Oskaka has a large
foreign trade, arsenals, a great castlt,
machine shops, a city hall, a mint, a col
lege and an academy, aud is traversed by
Canals over which are more than 1,100
bridges, some of them of iron. The city
has many theaters and other places of
amusement, ind it also has 1.900 places of
worship. In point of size it is the third
or fourth city in Japan, but in social af
fairs, fashion, commerce and industry it
takes the first rauk. Oskaka has five
newspapers and hundreds of schools.
FIGHTING RENEWED AT CORK.
Dillon and Tanner Have a Rough Time
Cork, Oct. 29 The fighting was re
newed here last night. John Dillon and
Dr. Tanner were driving together to at
tend an anti Farnell meeting, when a
mob started in pursuit and overtaking
them threw stones at Dillon, and also at
tacked him with blackthorns. Dillon
received a severe blow from a stick in the
hands of one of his assailants, and was
lamed for a time. He succeeded, however,
in reaching the meeting, and addressed an
Both Ptrtie. Talk of Winning.
A strong volunteer escort surrounded
Dillon on his departure, and protected him
from further violence. His injury causes
him conside' ible pain. Both parties this
morning boast of their ability to carry
the election, but the McCarthyites, al
though working earnestly, do not seem to
be confident. The Parnellites have so far
shown themselves in the majority in the
street fights, uud, but for police and mili
tary protection, the McCarthyites would
have been driven out of Cork.
British Army Supply Scandal.
London, Oct. 23. It is said that a seri
ous scandal, involving officials responsi
ble for army supplies, is the cause of the
mutinous outbreak of the Grenadier
Gnards at Windsor. The authorit ies have
been paying for a better quality of ra
tion than the troops received, and it is in
sinuated that some of the officers weJe
aware of the fact, and the grenadiers hav
ing suspicion of this knowledge, mutinied
as a last resort to call attention to their
The Pope to Decide a Momentous Ques
tion. ROME, Oct. It is reported that the
pope will ta.e decisive action before Sun
day on the question of leaving Rome and
the alternative question of making a
modus Vivendi with Italy. At present

since the Freucu prosecution of the arch
bishop of Aix it would be jumping out of
the frying pan into the flie to exchange
Rome for uuy pla e in France.

Carole.. Attorney. Delay Pension Claims.
Washington, Oct. 21. The commis
sioner of pensions has issue! a circular to
attorneys practicing before the bureau of
pensions in which he says that affidavits
And other important pnpers filed by many
leading attorneys throughout the country
are not properly briefed by them, and as
a result it is impossible for the bureau to
properly file such documents Without a
search of the records of the bureau for the
purpose of iilentific it ion. This delays the
adjudication of the claims.

gument, he said, had been used that mem
bers of the Episcopal church, and even
the Episcopal clergy, did not object to it.
He Assails the Episcopals.

Bad Habits of Society Women.
He declareti that society women of An
gt st a had a habit of going to restaurants
frequently and calling for drinks, and he
knew one woman who bragged that she
co lid put any man in town under the ta

New York, Oct.. 29. Forger Edward
L Stoddart, who has been in the Jersey
City jail since early last summer await
ing trial for forging a teleeraphic order
for money on the Pitt-.field National bank,
of Pittsfuld, Mass., will b3 sent to Ten
nessee to serve out an unexpired term if
Jersey justice fails to re;ic!i bi n. A req
uisition for the rettira of Stoddart to Ten
nessee, whicli was recently received by
Governor Abbett from Governor Buchan
an, "has brought to light a new chapter in
the history ot the prisoner which stamps
him as one of the cleverest rogues in the
11 is Operations at 3Iemp!iis.
In lt-'.W, whhe he was in Memphis under
the name of Henry B Davis, he was ar
rested (or passing a number of checks on
various banks and merchants. After a
sensational trial, to which Stoddart, or
D.ivis, gave a romantic tinge through
sensational letters which he forged in
jail aud got iuto circulation by means no
body tvns ever able to discern, he was con
vioivil and Ktntencvd to ten years in
state's prison. His attorney, W. W. Bab
list, trit-ti to save his client from the con
vict mines at Tracy, but he had to go
there. Last spring Governor Buchanan
received a petition for Stoddart's pardon,
which bore the signatures of some of the
lending men in Tennessee, and was ac
companied by a letter apparently written
by Attorney Bablist, which aroused much
sympathy for Stod.lart.
A Card dob of Forgery.
The letter is a marvel of ingenious con
struction. The accompanying petition
for the pardon wasequaliy iugenious, and
despite his usnal caution in dealing with
such aiLurs Governor Buchanan accepted
it as genuine aud considered it without
asking for interviews with any of the
signers, mnuy of whom were his personal
friends. The petitioners "humbly declare
their belief in IJ:ivis' innocence and that
he was undoubtedly the victim of abase
conspiracy t'ti.iiUd by persons who sought
to ruin Davis and place him in prison,
where he could not be au obstacle to their
plans." The petition contained the forged
signatures of all the officers of the court
iu which Davis was tried, the jurors who
found him guilty, and a large number of
The Governor Finds Out Something.
Governor Buchanan on March 16 issued
a pardon for the convict, had him brought
up to Nashvilie, and gave him a new suit
of clothes, a sum of money, and sent bim
away with kindly wishes for his welfare.
Two weeks afi,er stoddart bad gone Gov
ernor Buchanan met Attorney BnUlisi and
congratulated him on his success in secur
ing his client's pardon. The attorney was
amazed. He disclaimed all knowledge of
the matter. Then the governor instituted
an inquiry, which resulted in the startling
disclosure that not only the attorney's
letter l.tit the petition for the pardon,
with all the names attached, was a forgery.
No trace of S-odilart conld be found until
last August, when he was arrested in
Tried to Fool a Mitarhusetts OlrL
A day ar so after he was locked up in
Jersey City a youus lady iu Somerset,
Mass., received a letter from Stoddart,
written on the official letter head of the
police departmcntment, asking her to send
him money to get out of a "serious
scrape. " He acknowledged bimsidf to be
her brother, aud said that he had assumed
the name of Stoddart to save his own fam
ily from disgrace. It so happened that
the brother of the young woman in ques
tion was at home, and beyond showing
what a rascal he is,the letter accomplished
nothing for Stoddart.

A Danueronn Counterfeit Abroad That
Fools the Most Experienced.
Minneapolis, Oct. 29. One of the most
dangerous coaiitei it-its ever uttered in all
the long hisiory of money making in
America has made its appearance iu Min
neapolis. It has been found at one other
place in the country, Columbus, O., but
so woudronsly well executed is it that
even experienced bank men are fooled
when it reaches t heir fingers. The other
day a young man in the Metropolitan
bank, E. R. Gaylord, assistant cashier,
was receiving money from one of the cus
tomers of the bank. It happened that in
the deposit were a number of (2 bills.
putted One of the Notes.
In passing them through his fingers one
of them itttracted his attention, aud was
laid aside. The spotted biil turned out to
be one of this very dangerous class. The
bill was placed in the hands of J. W.
Lawrence, the special agent of the United
States treasury department, and was by
him sent to Washington. Mr. Lawrence
pronounces it the most perfect counterfeit,
he has ever seen.

Umontown, Pa., Oct. 29. James Hess
has mysteriously disappeared from his
home at the Redstone Coke works, south
of this place. Some employes of the
Pennsylvania Railroad company saw five
Italians pursuing ihe boy Tuesday night
with guns in their hands. Tbey also saw
one of the Italians shoot at the boy, but
conld not determine whether the shot
took effect, as they could not see the boy
at the moment the shot was fired.
Astronomers say that a shot fired on the
equator of Jupiter would travel with a
rotary motion at a speed forty-six times
greater than that of a cannon ball fired at
the earth's equator.
