A Drief Account of His Crime.
Nashville, April so. At 12:45 thia
morning a crowd began to gather around
the vicinity of the jail where the four
fiegroes arrested in connection with the
assault on the Misses Bruce, near Good
lettsville, are confined. The crowd at first
numbered over 100 persons, most of whom
appeared to be Btrangers, and they were
awaiting re-enforcements from the coun
try. There has been a great deal of dis
content manifested at Goodlettsville be
cause Harper, around whose neck a rope
Was twice placed by the mob Thursday,
was allowed to escape lynching. It seems
to be the general impression that he was
The Mob Begins Its Attack.
Baving been reinforced the mob secured
an ax and commenced battering on the
iron bars of the outer door. A large num
ber of officers were present, but were pow
erless to render assistance. Governor Bu
chanan arrived about 1:30 o'clock, and ad
dressed the mob, counseling them to desist
and promising that the prisoners would be
promptly dealt with by the courts. The
mob refused to listen to the governor en
treaties, and said they "would have" the
prisoners at all hazards. Jailer Willis was
urrounded by the vigilantes, but refused
to deliver up the keys, which he claimed
were in possession of the night watchman,
who had disappeared.
Alarm Rang on the Riot BelL
The mob time and again demanded that
the keys be surrendered, but the same
reply was given in every instance. The
riot bell was rung at 2 o'clock and in a
few minutes people who were aroused
from their slumbers Ix pan to flock to the
scene of the trouble. The police drove the
foremost members of the mob out of the
entrance to the jail, but suddenly there was
a rush of more than a hundred armed men
from a street in the neighborhood and the
attack was renewed.
Teace Coankrls Finally TrevaiL
A number shots were exchanged and
one of the mob was wounded. Then Gov
ernor Buchanan reappeared with Adjutant
General Norman and addressed the mob.
The jail at this time was well manned
with police, and an attack would probably
have resulted in great bloodshed. The
governor and adjutant general advised
the mob to disperse, and after some delib
eration the leaders promised the governor
that everything would be quitt, and the
law should take its course.

Christian "Scientists" Condemned.
Toi ONTO, Ont, April 30. The coroner's
jury holding an inquest on the body of
Robert J. McAuslan, a Christian scientist
who cied without medical attendance, re

ists, guilty of culpable negligence. They

WASN'T A FRENCH DUEL.
SERVED HIS TIME AND FREE.
The "Financial Napoleon" Ferd Ward at
Liberty Once More.
Sixg Sing, N. Y., April 30. Ferdinand
Ward the first "Napoleon of finance" is a
free man again. When he left the prison
he was given a prison madesuit of clothes,
110 and a ticket to New York. The United
Btates district attorney has decided not to
re-arrest him at present on the indict
ments hanging over him in the United
Btates court. Ward was in partnership
with the son of the first soldier of the era,
General Ulysses S. Grant, under the firm
name of Grant & Ward. Those black
days beginning with March 6, 1S84, when
it was announced that the great firm of
Grant & Ward bad gone down, and that
the Marine bank had closed its doors as a
consequence, are too recent to be entirely
forgotten. The liabilities of the firm were
$ 14.000.C00 with nothing left with which
to pay them.
How He Worked His Schemes.
By posing as a big lender of money
Ferdinand Ward, the 30-year-old son of a
Bapiist minister, had obtained great
blocks of stocks and bonds, always exact
ing twice as much collateral as he loaned
money. Then he pressed the collateral for
all he could get, paid ruinous rates of in
terest, and invested in all kinds of wildcat
schemes, with President Fish, of tbe Ma
rine bank, as silent partner. Ward finally
came to the end of his rope, and the crash
followed. lie was arrested, and his trial
occurred in the following October. Gen
eral Tracy, now secretary of the navy, de
fended him, and after a three days' fight
he stood before Justice Barrett, on Oct M,
and received a sentence of ten years at
hard labor in Sing Sing.
His Employment In Prison.
He was brought here tbe next day and
put to work cleaning castingsin the stove
department. From there he was removed
to the printing office, which he was the
first to conduct, and printed labels for
Perry & Co. He had worked at the trade
when a boy and soon learned to do good
work. Since then he has done all the
priuting for the prison, besides keeping a
scrap book for Warden Brown and his
predecessor. Ward's career has been a
most remarkable one, he having risen in
three years, through his own shrewdness,
from a mcssengership in the Produce Ex
change to the head of a great banking
Jlrm that could borrow iU.OOO.OOO. lie
hax spent the last few weeks breaking in
a convict to fill his place in the printing
llereavrments While In Prison. -
Ward feels his position keenly, but in
tends to start life anew and earn an hon
est living. In an interview before his re
lease with a correspondent he said: "I
look anxiously toward my release, princi--allv
so that I can see my 7-year-oid son.
Affair Between Harry Vane Mil-
bank and Ie Morny.
IiOSDOX, April 30. It transpires that the
. unknown Frenchman with whom Harry
Vane Milbaak fough a duel near Ostend
on Wednesday afternoon, is the Duke de
Morny, who has been angry with Milbank
ever since he made use of his decision as
one of the jury ot honor in the Borrowe
Draytnn row. The duke and Milbank met
In the restaurant of the Grand hotel at
Brussels. High words passed between'
them, and as it was apparent from the first
. that tl e duke was in fighting humor, Mil
1 bank vas ready to accommodate him. The
usual compliments were exchanged and
with p ;stols as the weapons the duke and
Milbai k met at the appointed place, about
two m.les from Ostend.
Moray Shot to Kill.
J' orny is said to have behaved with re
markable coolness, while Milbank was as
deliberate as ever in the role which had
grown familiar to him. It was a duel in
earnest on both sides, although it is !-
,lieved that Milbank did not mean to kill,
but to hit just where he did hit Morny,
it is sai 1, aimed for Milbank's head, evi
dently with the purpose of giving him a
deadly shot, but missed by hardly more
than a hair's breadth, whereas if he had
timed at the body he would probably
have a", least wounded his antagonist.
When le received the wound in the thigh,
, he wanted to have another shot, but as the
wound was bleeding freely and appeared
from it location to be dangerous the
seconds would not permit it.
I Reputations of the Two Men.
; The Duke de Morny has a bad social
reputation and comes of bad stock. He is
tbe son of the late Duke Charles de
Morny, one of the favored associates and
Dittural brother of the late Emperor
Napoleon HI. Dnke Charles was the
! ilWitin ate son of the dissolute Hortense,
. queen of Holland. As Naooleon himself
was sutpectedof being also illegitimate,
he had a fellow-feeling for the elder De
Morny and made him a duke in lfB.
Harry Vane Milbank is a young scion of
one of tie oldest families in England. He
( has fought a number of duels, always
, hitting sometimes killing his man, and
. being himself desperately wounded
once or twice. He doesn't brag Jof his
' affairs at all, is a quiet, gentlemanly fel
low and always insists that he was forced
into ever;.- fight he has fought.
Another Story of the Trouble.
A later report says that Due de Morny
is in Par s unhurt, and that it was not
with him the duel was fought. The story
I is that Millbank slapped tbe face of a
( Frenchmin w ho roundly abused English
( men in his hearing and with the evident
intention that the abuse should be heard.
J ROWLANDS FOR THEIR OLIVERS.
Home Rule Members Try to Have Fan
Loxrxtt, April 30. In the house of com
mons yesterday Daniel Crilly, Nationalist
( M. P. for Mayo, caused a good deal of
amusement by a question addressed to
Balfour, the leader of the house, on the
subject of providing quarters for the home
rule parliament. Crilly asked Balfour
upon whaf terms the Bank of Ireland had
acquired possession of the Irish parliament
house on College Green, Dublin. He
(Crilly) th )Ught the question one of impor
tance, in view of the near approach of
home rule, laughter.
Proved To He a Hum Saw.
Balfour said he had no knowledge as to
, what tbe tortus were upon which the bank
acquired the property, but had no doubt
the honor ible member could ascertain
: upon inquiring in the proper quarter. He
(Balfour) f ;lt quite certain that whenever
Irish homi) rule should be established
there wo til. 1 be no difficulty in securing
suitable prmises for an Irish parliament.
I A Tilt with the O. O. M. '
I The Tor leader seemed to be in excel
lent form, for when at another stage of the
proceeding Gladstone tackled him, the G.
O. M. got the worst of it. Gladstone
severely criticised Balfour for, as he called
it, muddling the transaction of business.
Gladstone said .that he doubted that tbe
government intended to press the Irish
local government bill. "Why not," he de
manded, "r.tise the veil shrouding the in
tentions of -ha- goveruinent as to the gen
eral lecth:i?"' Balfour, in reply, denied
that the b isiness of tbe house was in a
backward condition. The Irish local gov
ernment hi r would be taken up in the
middle of May. He added: "In view of
menaced 0 position to that bill I fail to
understand why the side represented by
the honorable gentleman is so ardently
desirous of t aving it taken up. The policy
of tbe government is plain and straight,
