Tne Victims of the Unprecedented Heat
Effect of the Visitation at St. Louis and
Cincinnati— Predictions of the
Special Dispatches to The Morning Call.
Chicago, June 20.— A cool breeze, begin
ning late this afternoon, ended the heated
term in this city, at least temporarily. The
breeze did not put in an appearance, how
ever, until the excessive heat had made a
record of eight fatal cases of prostration in
this city since daylight A large number ot
other persons succumbed, but up to this
eveuing no other deaths were apprehended.
The preceding twenty-four hours marked
me culmination of an almost unprecedented
period of warmth. According to the re
vised police reports there were eighteen
deaths from sunstroke and 117 other cases
of heat prostration yesterday, fully a dozen
of which are pronounced critical.
Four more deaths were reported up to
midnight. All four occurred early in the
da\ in remote parts of the city.
Dispatches from many points in
Illinois, lowa and Wisconsin tell
of a slight moderation in the
temperature to-day, but not enough to
p.ilord very much relief and cases of pros
trations are still quite numerous and
there were quite a number of deaths
at various points to-day. All the
cities in the States named report
an alarming increase in the mortal
ity list, the weather being especially severe
on children and Invalids.
St. Loins, June 29. — The hot weather

made arrangements to lease their houses
here and send their wives over to

COAL OIL IN SlllilEK.
It Is Specially Dangerous to Handle at
A frightful succession of coal oil calami
ties again compels attention to the fact that
in hot weather the products of petroleum
become increasingly dangerous. As the
temperature rises, all these products, from
the heaviest crude oil to the most volatile
naphtha, expand rapidly and give off gas
that mixed with the air becomes explosive.
When cold these fluids do not evaporate, and
dealers in kerosene illustrate the safety
of their high -test Illuminating oils by
throwing a lighted match into a vessel tilled
with the article they especially recommend.
That can be done as long as a low tempera
ture is carefully maintained, but the in
stant the temperature reaches the point
where evaporation begins then danger
threatens. Gas is generated, and, as it
spreads abroad, fills the vicinity with
an explosive compound which, coming
in contact with fire communicates in
flashing combustion with the body of the
fluid, and an outburst of flame follows
which it is almost impossible for any
human agency to deal with. This was
undoubtedly the cause of the calamity to
the tank steamer Hans and Kurt* at the
wharf on Wednesday, as it was of the simi
lar catastrophe resulting in the. destruction
of the steam schooner Louis Bucki at sea.
The gasoline accident yesterday at> Almond
and Adams streets was of the same charac
ter, and was attributable, a-> were the others
mentioned, to the effect of the hot weather
on petroleum products. The accident to
oil tanks by lightning are due to trie
same agency, electricity exploding the. gas
generated from the oil, and the flash setting
the tank on lire. It is difficult to imagine
how these dangers can be provided against
when the products of petroleum are of ne
cessity stored in large quantities; but it is
at least a plain requisite that* the dangers
should be recognized and understood, to the
end that extraordinary ore may be exer
cised during the summer — Philadel
I.xim iii i in Greece.
For six year 9 Greece has been searching
for an executioner. The oflire is looked on
with peculiar abhorrence in thai country,
and the present dillicuity is do new dtivel
optiicnt. The last capital execution occur
red in 1881, also after a long wait for an
individual who was willing to perform It.
A man nauifd ile->seuier, who had killed
his wife, offered to serve the State as exe

of five years' dearth of an execu

and eleven others iv tr,e rest of Greece.

The Strange Way In Which Antrim Wor

Media, Pa., ha 3 bean treated to a novel en
tertainment iv the Court House for several
days a'"' 't has attracted large audience*.
Antrim Worrillow was driving almg the
public road in Lower Chicester some time
ago and camo upon a scene that is seldom
witnessed outside of Spain and her older
colonies. It whs a bull tight. With locked
horns and foaming mor.i hi two gentlemen
cows were eugug"d iv a duel in the, king's
highway, to the delectation of a bevy of
feminine Jerseys who were enjoying the
sport hear by.
ilis horse, fearing bulls, as all his kind
do, Mid sidewise to the farthest admissible
place and endeavored to pass by, regardless
of consequences and the restraint of his
master. All would have been well but for
a solitary iree that sent its branches over
hanging the road, and it was these that tore
the top oil the Dearborn, broke the traces
aivl shot Mr. Worrillow out iuto the road,
lie was picked up insensible, and suffered
for weeks before being able to get about
again. Mr. Worrillow brought suit against
the Rond Supervisors for Ss<>oo damages for
negligence in permitting the highway to
be obstructed by the tree, and Judge Clay
ton liad wrestled with this fur two full
days, uncertain whether the blame rested
on the bulls, the road, the tree or the, horse,
but with inclination toward the bulls.
Worrlllow produced many witnesses as
to the facts, and Dr. Stellwagen of Phila
delphia as to the cause of his baldness, tor
his hair bad all fallen out. The doctor
called his disease alloicccla areata, which
be told the court meant baldness in patches,
caused by the shock.
The defense had also an array of wit
nesses, and among these Dr. 1). Lannoy of
Chester, who differed with Steliwagen. as
doctors invariably do. He said Mr. Wor
rillovv's disease was not as staled on Hie
other side, so lie thought, but it was para
sitical and could be cured, the shuck hav
ing nothing to do with it.
The Judge hardly knew what to do, and
especially did he know nothing at all about
medical matters. As lie was brought up on
a farm lie did know all about bulls, and
there were many of these in his charge.
lie told the jury they were twelve sensible
men and could settle tin; question by the
facts, although these were somewhat mixed.
If the bulls smashed the wagon and the
tree did not touch It, then the bulls were
clearly liable; but if the tree was the sole
cause of the accident and the bulls did not
run against it, then the tree should bear
the blame; but if the bulls scared the horse
into the tree, and all together contributed to
the general wreck, It was for the jury to di
vide the conspirators and lay the damages
accordingly. As the bulls had no money
and could not be assessed the tree should
only be charged with its share and this
would fall on the Supervisors to pay,
therefore no excessive amount should be

Tbe Notcl Use the Ktlison Phonograph
U»« Brrn I'at To.
The preseut state of perfection of the
Edison Dhonogrmph led me, writes J.
Walter Pewket in Nature, to attempt some
experiments with it on uur New England
Indians at a means of preserving lan
guages which are rapidly becoming extinct.
I accordingly made a visit to Calais, Me.,
and was able, through the kindness
of Mrs. W. Wallace Brown, to take
upon the phonograph a collection of records
Illustrating the language, folk-lore, songs
and coun ting-out rhymes of the Passama
quoddy Indians. My experiments met with
complete success and I was able not only to
take the records but also to take them so
well that the Indians themselves recognized
the voices of other members of: the tribe
who had spoken the day before.
One of the most interesting records
which was made was the song of the snake
dance, sung by Noel Josephs, who is recog
nized by the I'jissamanuoddies as the best
acquainted of all with this song "of old
time." lie is always the leader In the
dance nnd sang it in the same way as at
its last celebration.
I also took upon the some wax cylinder
on which the impressions are made his ac
count of tiie dance, including the invitation
wlilch precedes the ceremony.
In addition to the song of the snake
dance I obtained on the phonograph aviv
terestinu "Trade Song," and a "Mohawk
War Song " which is very old. several
other songs were recorded. Many very in
teresting old-folk tales were also taken.
In some of those there occurred ancient
snugs with archaic words, and imitations
of the voices of animals, old and young.
An ordinary conversation between two In
dians and a counting-out rhyme are among
the records made.
I found the schedules of the United States
Bureau of Ethnology of great value in my
work, adopting the method of giving Passß
maquoddy and English words consecutively
on the cylinder.
The records were nil numbered, and the
announcement of the subject made on each
in English. Some of the stories filled sov
eral cylinders, but there was little difficulty
in making the changes necessary to
pass from one to the other, and
the Indians, after some practice, were
able to " make good records " in the
instrument. Thirty-six cylinders were
taken in all. One apiece is sufficient for
most of the song; and for many of the short
stories. The longest story taken was a folk
tale, which occupies nine cylinders, about
"PmlimiD" and "Pook-jin-Squiss," the
"Black Cat and the Toad Woman." which
has never been published. In a detailed re
port of my work with the phouograph in
preserving the l'assaiuaqunddy language, I
hope to give a translation of the interest
A STATE QUARRY.
A Valuable Deposit of Granite in? Dis
Sacramento. June 29.— When the C;r
tral Pacific Railroad was being built th«
State gave certain rights and privileges n
the company, and in consideration there nt
the company deeded to the State a valu
able piece of granite land in Placer County.
It was thought at the time the granite
would prove useful in building the Star'
Capitol, but it was not used. Sever;',
years afterward the land was "jumped,"
by John and Mary Quinn, and < was
worked by them for somo time beforn
the Attorney-General brought suit on be
half of the State to oust them. They,
however, abandoned the claim ami the suit
was dismissed. For ten yettis the quarries
lay idle, although the Quiuns still claimed
the property was theirs. In the mean time
the husband died. Six months ago Mr-.
Quiuit and her husband's brother, Thomas
Quinu, re-entered upon the property ami
begun working the quarries. The matter
was reported recently to Attorney-General
Johnson and be commenced injunction
proceedings in behalf of the people in
the Superior Court of Placer County. '
It was learned, however, that Superior
Judge .Meyer had formerly been the attor
ney for the (Jumni, ami was disqualified
lien in-ill the case. Accordingly an M
der transferring the case to Sacramento
County was made, and District Attorney
Tuttle yesterday came with the necessary
papers and turned them over to District
Attorney limner, who formally tiled them
iv the Superior Court. Mrs. Quinn
has succeeded in having several bills
introduced in the Legislature authorizing
the conveyance of the prorerty from the
State to her, setting forth that she and her
husband had made many improvement*
and were entitled to the property, but none
of the bills were carried through. One did
pass both houses, but Governor Bartlett
vetoed it. It is understood that the Quinns
will not abandon the quarries this time,
but will innki) a vigorous fight for them,
using aa their main weapons the provisions
of the statute of limitations.

THE ELECTION BILL.
A Heated Discussion and Close
Views Said to Be Entertained by the
Measures Congress Kay Consider During
the Week— Mare Island ap
Special Dispatches to The Moiinino Cam.
Washington-, June 29.— A great deal of
Interest is felt here regarding the vote on
Wednesday on tho Federal Election Hill*
and the leaders on both sides in the House
have been doing some till hustling duriug
the past few days. The Democrats are solid
against tho bill, while the Republicans are
not unauimous in its favor. Ewart of
North Can liua and Lehibach of New
Jersey (Republicans) have already made
speeches against the bill, and Coleman of
Louisiana will do so to-morrow. AU three
will vote against it, and there is ground for
the belief that Cheaale of Indiana and
Brnwer of North Carolina will join them.
This change of five votes will reduce the
Kepublican majority in tho House from 20
to 10. Besides this the Democratic leaders
claim that at least twelve Republicans have
agreed to dod^e the vote, aud they there
fore Claim that the bill will be defeated in
the House. The Republican leaders in this
light— Lodge, HcCom&a, Rowell and Sangen
—claim that the bill will pass by .at least
two majority, and perhaps more.
the pbkstdeht's views.
In connection with the passage of this
bill the Sunday Herald (Democratic) says
to-day: l'resident Harrison heretofore has
been given the credit of at least deprecat
ing, if not of actually opposing, the passage
of the dangerous Federal Election bill now
under discussion in the liaise. It has been
believed that he is statesman enough to dis
cern the evil tendencies of some of its pro
visions and sufficiently patriotic to frown
upon the centralizing and un-American
clique which forced most of the Republi
cans in the Hue into accepting the bill.
But yesterday the President took occasion
to declare himself under the domination of
the Reed wing ql the party and in favor of
tlii- bill. He thinks there is still a saving
power for the party in the bloody shirt, aud
not only wants the bill passed but wants it
done quickly, so that the cry of "Southern
outrages" may be used at the coming Con
gressional campaign, to lire the Northern
Esartaad distract attention from the queer
record of the party in Congress on the sil
ver question and the crowing dissensions
>v the tar. l!' question.
FAVORS THE BILL.
A gentleman, bo in the past has held
very close official and personal relations
with the President, related the substance
of an interview between him and the chief
Magistrate to the Sunday Herald repre
sentative yesterday. The interview took
place yesterday morning. It opened with
the amusing declaration by General Har
rison that under no circumstances would
he interfere, even by the remotest sugges
tion outside of an official message, with tho
action of XJongress. Then the President
continued: If they pass the Federal Klec
-Uoii ISUi i >till slbii it .... .-,«., i> i:»:t :=. £•»
sented to mo for my consideration. 1 want
them to pass that bill, and 1 don't care who
knows it." Subsequently the President
said he had, in a dissultory way, advised
friends la both Houses of Congress to pro
ceed as rapidly as possible with tho final
enactment of the bill, so that it might be
come a question of discussion in the coming
B.lls to Ec Considered in the Senate and
Heine Thi« Week.
Washington, June 2'.i.— The Senate will
be occupied with appropriation bills the
greater part of the week, and the tariff will
likely go over until next week. Of gen
eral business, tlie bill for the admission of
Idaho has the lirst place, and tho River and
liarbor Bill the next. The Senate will
likely adjourn from Thursday till Monday,
and the menu ers ot the House expect to do
the same, although this is not definitely de
cided by that body. The Silver Dill con
ference report may come up this week, but
it may be deferred. The Election Bill still
has the precedence.
The Washington and Worcester Clubs Ar
Washington, June 29.— During to-day's
ball game between the Washington and
Worcester teams a Justice of the Peace
served warrants on both teams for vio
lating the Sunday law. The trial was held
at once and each man n c.l $J and costs,
amountiug to £4. Tlie g.une was then con

Secretary Burkett of the Washington Club

license. Hearing of tho move, however,
Burkett tied to this city.

Station 1 ■. I•■ nt Night.
The reporter who has been an operator has
a decided Advantage in getting his copy to
the office by telegraph. A year or two ago
one who had a knowledge of telegraphy Was
sent to Dobbs Ferry late at night on an ex
tremely important affair. Ho arrived there
at 11 o'clock, hud to drive a considerable
distance from the station, and it was 1
o'clock Id the morning when he returned to
the depot. The last train had gone and the
telegraph office closed a long time before.
A watchman or track-walker at the depot
said that the operator lived it mile and a
half away, and that he was ill anyhow, »ud
that there was no possibility of sending
anything by wire that night.
When the watchman had obligingly taken
a walk up the track the writer tried the of
fice window, found the catch rather louse,
and with the thin blade of a pocket-knife
soon removed the • fastening. ' To open
the window, crawl in, and connect
the wires in the switch - board was
the work of a moment. "N. Y."
was called and raised, and the loop to the
newspaper office naked fur. .- Twelve hun
dred words were sent in before 2 o'clock,
without copy, it being necessary for lack
of time to compose the story as it was
telegraphed on : the . key. This
was done in the dark for fear the watch
mail would see a light and come
back and shoot the reporter for burglary.
"O. K." having been received the reporter
went outside, closed the window and spent
the .remainder of the night gazing at the

yet that they remained almost useless tools

STANLEY AND THE SAVAGES.
A Story Illustrating the Explorer's
Koailinrm of Resource.
Ilerbert Ward tells a story illustrating
Stanley's readiness of resource in dealing
with a crafty savage trying to overreach
him. When tiie explorer reached Stanley
Pool on his last expedition the big Bateke
chief Ngalyeuia, who figured conspicuously
in Stanley's book on the Congo State, came
to him demanding a big present on the
ground that some of his carriers had taken
bananas from his plantation. Stanley had
good reason to believe the wily ivory-trader
was lying, and he did not propose to fall
into his trap. Almost any one else would
have tu'.'l the chief he was a prevaricator,
and there would have been an angry dis
cussion and bad feeling on all sides; but
that whs not Mauley's way. lie at once
summoned all his men into iir.e, and walked
up and down in front of it with the chief,
asking him to Dick out the culprits. Ngal

ley, "how can I pay ymi for stolen t>an
anas unless you give me proof that my men
have stolen them; and how can I p.iu.-li
thieves unless 1 know who they are? Wait
Stanley withdrew into his tent and pres
9ntly emerged with a piece of chalk. "Sao
here, Ngalyema," he said, "this little thing
in my hand makes a white mark on the
black skin. Take it. Thu next time you

STAMPEDE IN A CIRCUS.
A Sconndrel Unbars the Cages
and Releases the Animals.
An Appalling Scene in a South African Town.
Lions, Tiger?, Wolves and Leopaids
Engage in Bco !y Conflict.
The following tragic story is taken from
a recent number of the Diamond Fields Ad
Shortly after 11 o'clock last night a gen
eral stamped'! of all the animals compris
ing Fillis' Menagerie took place. This
appaling occurence is attributed to a mis
creant, at present at large, who, possessed
of a grudge against Mr. Fillis or members
of his company, thought to pay it out by
climbing on the fence of the inclosure in
which the animals are kept, ami, at immi
nent risk to his own life and limbs, releas
ing from their cages and chains the whole
of the wild animals. This fiend in human
shape is evidently one well acquainted with
the. show, for not only has ho exhibited a
familiarity with tho licks and bars of the
ca^ci, but he selected the day and hour
when the supervision of the animals was
most relaxed. He appears to have made
good his escape before the animals realized
their freedom from restraint, and as the
four employes, who slept on the premises,
have ali fallen victims to the ferocity of
the wild beasts it is impossible to say at
present if his identity is Known.
From what we can either, the four m:ile
lions, Pasha, Abdul, Cattail and Mustr.i I
upon discovering their cage-door open, I ■'.
mediately proceeded to t:.e stables, where
the large lion, Pubs, leaped on to tlie back
of Murat, the jumping horse, and fastened
his teeth in bis neck and withers. It is re
ported that he has always borne this horse
a most unaccountable grudge, and invaria
bly gave signs of displeasure and dislike
when within si^ht of him. Tlie horse's
screams aroused the four attendants— a
Scotchman named Patterson and three Kaf
fir buys— and hastily am. inn themselves
with stable forks they rufhed to the scene
of the disturbance, evidently ignorant of
the numerical strength of the foe they had
to couteud with. These four gallant fel
lows met a fearful death. From the few
words of one of the K.iflir boys to Mr. Fillis
it appears that he and his mates, when
endeavoring to beat back the lion Pasha,
were attacked from the rear by the tiireo
other lions and one of the cheetahs. They
were then literally torn limb from limb by
the lerocious brutes, and the scene of their
death is one, of indescribable horror. Hav
ing tasted blood the lions, main and female,
the cheetahs, the wolves and the leopards
seemed to retrain all the ferocity of their
class, and Mr. Fillis' four Hungarian
horses— Sang dOr, Kremis, Lenore and
Et. lie — and the performing horses Beauty
and Black Bess soon fell victims to their lust
for blood. The elephant, frightened at the
noise, in his endeavor to escape bur.>t
through the heavy iron gate and ru?!ied
into Curry street, followed by nearly the
whole of the wild animals, who appear to
have been startled by something while en
gaged in their work of carnage in the sta
A cabman residing at Reaconsfield had a
narrow escape. Hearing the noise, he drove
down from the main street to see the
animals rush out. He likens the scene to
the exit from Noah's ark. An elephant
came out first, and a few seconds afterward
tumbled out acottftuedmob of lions, wolves,
hyenas, baboons, leopards, cheetahs and
The wolves, with the instinct of their
race, immediately rushed upon Nelson's
horses, and two of the lions attacked them
also. Strange to say, they left the man
himself unmolested, and he managed to
climb up a poet at Glover's Athletic Bar
and secure his safety in one of tho rooms.
When last ho saw his horses they were gal
loping madly down the Dutiitspan road,
snorting and screaming with fear and pain,
followed by the wolves and two of the lions.
The remainder of the animals, Nelson says,
dispersed iv all directions; but the man ap
pears to be so unstrung by his terrible ex
periences that nothing coherent can bo ob
tained from him. A little son of Mr. Grind
ley, produce-dealer, happened to bo iv tho
back yard of his father's premises. Ho
noticed a cheetah which had taken refuge
there, nnu", with the fearlessness of child
hood, walked up to it. Ills mother, from
her bed-room window, saw the brute lay
her darling prostrate with one blow of its
paw and then mangle him beyond all recog
Four lions, two lionesies, two tigers,
three bears, two wolves, ono hyena, two
cheetahs, four jackals, one elephant, one

Only two of these animals have as yet been

the Dutoitspan road, haying been awakened
by the noise, was looking out of his bed

The case arose out of the Johnstown dis
aster to determine who was entitled to tho
$3000 to be paid on the death of Walter E.
Hoopes, Secretary of the Johnstown Steel
Company, n member of the order, and who
with liis wife and two children was drowned
in the flood. Mrs. Cowman is a sk r of
Mr. Hoopes and claimed the fund, while
Mr. Kodgers, as administrator o( the two
children of Mr. Iluopes, conteuded that
they belonged to both parents and tuo fund
to their estate.
There was ouly one survivor of the flood
who knew anything of the manner in
which the Hoopes family perished. He
testified that he was in Hih dwelling of Mr.
Hoopes, in the parlor with Mr. and Mrs.
Hoopes, when lie saw a dark body covering
the windows. lie rushed out and upstairs,
and never saw Mr. and Mrs. Iloopes after
that. Upstairs were his own wife and
child and the two children of Mr. Hoopes.
He got them all together and drove them
before him up to the top of the attic steps.
Tain the house was swept away, and all
were drowned except himself.
Under the old Koman law, Judge Dennis
remarked, all sorts of presumptions as to
survivorstiip were taken into considera
tion, as to sex aud strength, being an ex
pert swimmer, etc., but the English law
swept all this away, and the courts now do
not consider presumption in such case.

Judce Dennis, is that of Ball, in Cheeye's

ton. In this case Mrs. Mail was heard,
some trn minutes after the explosion, to
call loudly for her husband and she re
ceived no response, and as he was known
as a brave man and devoted husband the
court decided that the evidence was suffi
cient to establish that she survived, throwing
out as not so conclusive the fact that some
minutes after the explosion a man rushed to
the side aud threw a coat into a small boat,
and then disappeared and never was Been
afterward, and that the coat would tit Ball,
n large man, and that it bore his Initials.
The Court held that the man might be other
than ball himself.
Judge Dennis, acting on the only tangible
evidence, decided that the children of
Hoopes survived their parents, and awarded
the fund to their estate.— Baltimore Ameri
