PAINT AND FEATHERS.
Inteniew Between a Delegation of Hostile
Indians and General Brooke.
Omaiia. Dec. 7.— Tha Bee's Tine Ridge
special, about the conference between Gen
eral Brooke aud the hostile chiefs, says:
" The chiefs were Turning Bear, Big Tur
key, High Pine. Big Baa-burse and Bull
dog. They were decorated with war paint
and feather*, as were also their ponies.
General Brooke explained to them that the
Great Father wanted to tell them that it they
would come in near the agency, where he
(General Brooke) could see them often
and not be compelled to depend upon irre
sponsible rumors to learn what tliej' were
doing, he would give them plenty to eat
and employ many of their young men as
scouts, etc. The soldiers, ho said, had not
come to fight them, but to protect the set
tlers and keep peace. As to the feeling
over the boundary line change between
Tine Ridge and Rosebud, all such differen
ces would be satisfactorily adjusted hfter
the Indians had shown a dhpo-ii ion to come
In an requested by the Great Father. Ha
suggested that Wounded Knee name a place
that would be sati->f;ictory.
The ludi-n chiefs listened Intently, and
Turning Bear then spoke for them. lie
said it would be a bad thing for the Indians
to couie nearer the agency, because fiere
was no water nor grass for their horses. He
could not understand how their young men
could be employed as scouts if there was no
enemy to be watched. They might come in,
but as the old men and xqiuws nave no
horses they should want the Great Father
to send horses and wagons to the Bad
Lands, and take all the beet and other
things they had tnere to the camp that
aught be agreed on.
General Brxike said that all these things
would be considered after they had shown
a disposition to obey Instructions.
No reference was made on either sidij to
the depredations the hostiles had been com
mitting on the Government's herd?, as well
as the settlers' hciucs. After the pow-wo w
the thief's were fed. and after ft* squaws at

to-day: "Generals Kucer and Brooke have

Dumber of available troops In a position to

threatened cyclone, yet the end of the

A Feeling That the Fare's Foiicy Will Be
Ir.nusncefl by Democratic Lobbyists.
Ocala, Dec. 7.— While the National Alli
ance delegates have been resting more or
less to-day after the labors of the past five
days, still there has been a lar^e amountof
committee work going ou and many im
portant conferences have been held. All
this will facilitate convention work to-mor
iow. and it is predicted that more real busi

ous sesMon put together. Before adjourn
ment last nielli Washington, D. C, was de
cided upon as tlie place, and the third Tues
day in November as the time for holding
the next annual meeting of the National
Alliance. Strong efforts, it 13 said, will be
made to-morrow to revoke th's action
and uiak>j Indianapolis the place, with
considerable hope ot success. A prejudice
against Washington lias been excited by
wrsternew here. The opinion is gaming
ground that the national leaders of the
Democratic party have many lobbyists here,
in their interests, and thai the policy of tUe
alliance iv many respect.s will be influenced
by them, notably iv the case of tne Sub-
Trea-ury BilL That measure is now under
consideration by the National Alliance, and
has been for several days past. It is pre
dicted that when it finally comes from the
committee it will have, been modified and
changed in many important particulars With
a view of making it accoid with Democratic
doctrine to such an exu>nt that it can easily
by adopted by the National Democratic
Convention in ISO.!, or perhaps be passed by
Congress prior to that ewut with some
slight changes and modifications. The
alliance Ocala platlortu could, it is pre
dicted, secure, absolute adoption by the
National Democratic Convention, and this,
with the indorsement of a modified buu-

Issued for a Meeting To-Day — Dis

Special to The Mokninq Call
London, Dec. 7.— The conference of
the McCarthy party was prolonged un
til after midnight last night. McCar
thy presided throughout the session. A
committee consisting of Murphy, Barry,
Morrough, Jlealy, Sexton and Power
was appointed to draft a prospectus for
a limited company to establish a daily
newspaper in Ireland to be devoted to the
interests of the Nationalist party. Harry
Webb, Treasurer of the new company,
opened a list and the members present sub
scribed £1020. It is probable United Ireland
will become a daily publication. The ma
jority of the party were keenly alive to the
disadvantage of the leading Nationalist
papers biding with Parnell, and the whole
of the machinery of the National League
beini under his control. They are hopeful,
ho-.vever, that the influence of the Bishops
and priests will assist them to obtain a
popular verdict. Both sides are preparing
for an immediate campaign In Ireland.
I>' THE CIIUUCIIE9.
A letter from the Archbishops and Bish
ops was read in all the Catholic Churches in
Irelaud after the celebration of inasscß to
day. At St. Olman's Cathedra), Queens
town, after the letter had been read, Key.
liathcr Fisk addressed the congregation.
He declared it was no longer possible for
Parnell to remain at the head of the Irish
party. He had disgraced, dishonored and
degraded himself by his own nets, and could
not lead the smallest section of the Irish
people. In refusing to recognize the author
ity of the Bishops, Parnell was doing an in
calculable mischief to the Irish causa — was
performing the work of the enemy, and
rendering tlie people disunited and dis
Parnell refuses to recognize the vote
whereby he has been deposed from the
leadership of the Irish party, lie holds
thiit those who passed the vole reasrd to br
long to the Irish Parliamentary party and
lie now intends to wage strenuous war, with
the Object of demonstrating that the author
ity to speak in the Dame of tlie Irish people
no longer rests with them. He will proceed
to Ireland during the Chriatuias recess and
elicit public opinion.
A close fiiend of Parnell says: "AH this
has been coming on for sume time. Parnell
is not really popular iv his party. The di
voice court was only a spark that touched a
train aheady laid. Parnell will take a
lead in the Commons and the others
will be bound to follow. He will
manaze. it so that they cannot disobey him
without ruining themselves. They have the
most ablf nt debaters. I admit our
strongest man in that line is John lietl
mond, but If l'arnell lakes one view, is Sex
ton or Healy going to jump up In the
noose and say: "you are not the leader, I
am." The Irish people everywhere
will certainly see th.it in restoring
Gladstone's dictation PuriieU was loyal to
his country." Thu Kimlish Glndstonians
are beaming to-day, thiuking the battle is
practically over. The Conservatives are not
sure liciw th" matter will end, but they be
lieve that whatever happens their patty will
get the oysters and the other aide the shells.
CALf. FOR A MEETING.
McCarthy has addressed a circular to all
the Irish members of Parliament, including
Parnell, calling n meeting of the party at 2
o'clock to-morrow. Thu first business to
come before th» meeting will be the election
by ballot of a Consultation Committee of
figut members. Members of the party are
discussing the advisability of Dillon and
O'Brien returning by way of France, where
a convention could be held, at which the
advice of the envoys could be obtained be
fore their arrest. Gilhooly, P. O'Brien,
Carew and ftlabon aro still classed with the
dcmbtfiils. The strength, therefore, of the
MeCarthyites is fifty and that of the Par
Dublin, Dec. 7.— No reference was made
to Parnell in the churches hero to-day. A
meeting ot Nationalists was held in Phoenix
Park. The attendance was only moderate,
owing to the bitterly cold weather. The
Lord Mayor, who presided, moved a resolu
tion that Parnell alone was fitted to lead tlie
natiou. He condemned the Healyites,
whose independence and Integrity, lie said,
had been snapped by the English wire
pullers. He called on Parnell, under no
circumstances to abandon bis position.
Gladstone, lie said, was still humbugging
Ireland. When .Sexton, Hualy, Dillon and
O'Biien [groans] were dining with Glad
stone, they were, perhaps, si-lling the Irish
caut t. Sweetbreads aud high dishes had
('erc'ftie them. L'e challenged Pumeli's
o vonents, whom he cha.acteiized as politi
cal lepers, to come to Ireland and see how
they would be served. The resolution was
carried nnantmontly; also a vote oi thanks
to those who supported Parnt.'ll. The crowd
burned an effigy of Healy, aud kicked the
remains about tlie park", amid shouts of
derision. Otherwise, the meeting was or

New Yoiik, Dec. 7.— The World's Lon
don special says: It is not easy to
foresee the Immensely imuortaut effect
of the rtecisivq split in the Irish
party. Parnell is generally admitted to
be master of the situation. ll is friends
consider that Gladstone's lettPr declining to
receive the Irish delneates until Parnell was
deposed was an officious di tation, and will
as such be resented by the Irish race every
where. They are particularly confident that
his letter will strciiEthen Parnell's position
in Ireland, as it will be held to justify his
distrust of Gladstone.
STATEMENT OF THE ENVOYS.
New Youk, Dec. 7.— O'Brien, Dillon,
O'Connor and Gill, Irish envoys to America,
arrived in this city to-day from Chicago.
Harrington, who decided to cast his lot with
Pi.rnell, did not accompany them. T. P.
O'Connor went to the Bartholdi Hotel,
wlifie he lias friends, while the othet four
put u> at the Hoffman House. They took
the finest suite of rooms iv the house on the
first floor. They refused to be Interviewed
but all signed the following statement for

maintain absolute silence in the circumstan

cabled our approval to the choice of Justin
McCarthy as the Chairman of the Irish Na
tional party, and our earnest hope is that
our colleagues and our people' may see the
way to acquiesce in the choice and restore
the priceless blessing of unity in our party.
Wlißtever additional communication we
may find iiirselves at liberty to make to the
public will be made collectively, and nill
not be made so long as we can see any pos
sibility of saving our country from a ruin

should suffer by our holding our tongues
rather than that the possibility of unity
should be prejudiced by a single Injudicious
word at this painful moment.
EXPLANATIONS AND APOLOGIES.
Result of an Invciueaticn Concerning Hu
mors Abont Mn. Mackay.
New YonK, Dec. 7.— A Sun's London
dispatch says: Some weeks ago the Sun
published advertisements from London
newspapers, whereby John W. Mackay of
fered a reward for information concerning
the identity of certain persons in London
who hart circulated unpleasant rumors con
cerning Mrs. Mackay's early career. The
explanation to this circumstance furnishes
a rather amusing illustration of the facility
with which a rumor augments itself under
favorable conditions. It seems that a lady
of high position, near the court— Mrs. Chain
—some years ago was annoyed by the es
capade of a favorite maid, a very pretty girl,
who ran away from her employer and her
home and went to New York with a wealthy
Australian, not unknown to the turf. Her
mistress, interested in the girl's fate, heard
that she bad eventually gone to the Pacific
Coast, nnd there married a Scotchman or
an Irishman by tlie name of Mackay. When
Mrs. J. W. Mackay first came to London
and attracted the attention of fashionable
society some thoughtless or ill-natured per
son in Mrs. Chain's circle of friends threw
out the query as to whether Mr. Mackay,
whose name was then in all the people's
mouths as a "Silver King" in America,
could possibly be the person who was re
ported to have married Mrs. Chain's uinid.
There does not seem to have been the slights
est imaginable incentive or excuse for this
query except the idle and frivolous disposi
tion of tlie one who made it. It came at
last to the knowledge of Mrs. Macfeny as
proceeding from a well-known American
lady now a resident of London. Then
Mackay issued the advertisement referred
to and called in the services of George
Lewis, who has been successful in setting
the matter rcht, %vith explanations and
apologies from all concerned.
WENT MAD AT SIGHT.
Mrs. Dalnrme's Bonnlem Terrorized by
n Crazy Servant.
Among the many prosperous and fashion
able uptown boarding-houses is that of .Mrs.
Oelorme at 18 East Fifty-eighth street, a
few doors below Fifth avenue. In fact,
Mrs. Delorme's may be termed oue of the
many. Among her boarders are some of tbe
very best people in the city.
Shortly after 1 o'clock everybody wa3
awakened by a terrible war-whoop that em
anated from the top floor. In an iur-ttiut Ike
thud of multitudinous footsteps was hen id
in the various rooms, aud shortly afterward
the halls were tilled with wild-eyed boarders
very txciled aud very decollete. Allot hi r
shrill, blood-curdling scream rent the
air. It was supplemented by mild hysterics
from several white-robed objects gHzing up
from the banisters. At that moment a heio
made his appearance. It was A. M. Hand,
one of the boarders, who slnrtcd upstairs to
see w I. r.t the matter was. He met a white
apparition at the top of the stairs, and when
the apparation gave another scream he
recognized Cora, the colored servant. She
was clad only ii> her night-dress, aud in her
hand she grasped a pitcher. He had not
taken half a dozen steps belore thuerazy girl
burled the vessel at him with terrific force.
Mr. Hand jumped aside, but nut in time to
escape, he was struck on the side of the
head ana his scalp was cut. The girl ran
back into her room, procured au armful of
miscellaneous munitions of war and again
opened fire on Mr. Hand, who retreated
precipitately to his room. Still screaming
at the top of her voice, Cora made her way
downstairs and into the parlor, and for
awhile ncthing was heard but tiie dull
crash of parlor ornaments and the thud of
the insane girl's feet as she danced wildly
about the room. Then, her humor changing
suddenly, she opened the parlor window
and sprang out, falling upon the sidewalk,
where she. lay motioule9s.
Mr. Hand and another boarder rushed
out and picked her up. She recovered con
sciousness iv a moment, and the two men
had all they could do to hold her. She bit
and fought and scratched and made the
neighborhood ring with li<t streams. In
ihe meantime a boarder had rushed off and
called an ambnlauce. By tbe time it arrived
the whole neighborhood was aroused. Every
window along thn block was occupied by a
lieml. A big policeman ran up and tooW
hold of the girl, and Mr. Hand aud the other
boarder promptly let go. In an instant the
girl fastened her l.ails in the policeman's
lace. He >c!led lustily for assistance. Mr.
Hand ;i_ain i ushed to tlie rescue, and be
tween them they managed to hold the gill
until tiie ambulance arrived. It required
the combined efforts of three men to pl?.ce
her iv the vehicle, ami she had to he held
down all the way to Bellevue Hospital,
where it was found that she hud not been
injured by her leap. She was plactJ in a
strait-jacket and put in the insane pavil

About 1 :30 o'clock yesterday morning, H.
Moore, a carpenter, was MStralted and
robbed by footpads on Cedar street, a small
thoroughfare that runs from Clay to Wash
ington streets, between Front and Davis.
Moore is employed by a man named
NlchoUc, who has a carpenter-shop on tbo
street mentioned. Alter his day's work
was done he adds to his uarnings by making
coops for the poultry dealers in the vicinity,
working all hours of the night. At the hour
mentioned he went to the sliop to do some
work and noticed two men sitting outside
by the door. While he »a* knocking at the
door to rouso a n;:m who was n-sleep iuside,
tbe two men attacked him. Onu of them

yesterday afternoon Moore saw the two
men who had assaulted him, passing the
shop. He followed them, but they boarded
a Clay-street car and escaped. He fur

Washington, Dec. 7.— Honk of Tennes

to the new apportionment. He lias brought
out the fact that, according to the second
section of the Fourteenth Amendment to the
Constitution, whenever the right to vote at
a national or State election is denied to any
male citizen 23 years of age aud over, or is
in any way abridged, except for participa
tion in rebellion or other crimes, the basis
of representation in the offending State
shall be reduced in tho proportion which the
number of such male citizens shall bnar to
the whole number of male citizens in the
State. Uouk wants the Judiciary Commit
tee instructed to inquire into, ascertain aud
report to the House whether or not. oue or
more of the States of this Unicn has by
any constitutional or statutory provision vi
olated this section of tlie Fourteenth
Amendment, so that the proper apportion

No Programme of Business Has Yst Been
Washington, Dec. 7.— No programme of
business lias yet been formulated by the
liepublicau leaders in the House. The
Committee on liules has held but one meet
ing since the session began and this was
productive of r.o result owing to the absence
of Chairman Millilsen of the Public Build
ings Committee, whose views were wanted
on legi>lation regarding that important sub
ject. It cuu be stated, however, that a day
will be given to the consideration of bills
which have passed the committee of the
whole and are on the calendar as unfinished
business. There are thirty of these bills
and they provide for buildings at as many
cities, lucludiiij; Slockton aud Portland,
Oregon. Whither these bills will pass is
another question. The Appropriations
Committee will not oppoin them, and the,
Kepublicaus are likely to vote favorably
because DO specific, sum is appropriated for
each buildiiij.', so that the ctiancps am
largely in favor of the bills. If the bills
contained appropriations the Democrats
would also vole for them in order to swell
the expenditures of the Republican Con
gress, but they are not quite certain that

Washington, Dec. 7.— lt Is the under
standing generally among the Senators that
tlie National Elections Bill is to occupy tlie
major part of the timo of the Senate this
week. In the House the Indian Committee
will have Wednesday and the Committee on
Private Land Claims Saturday for consider
ation of bills reported. There are a num
ber of matters, any of whiet) may lake up
the remaining two days of the week, though
it is likely the Appropriations Committee
will occupy.! part of this time, either with
the Urgent Defiolency Hill, making appro
opriations for printing for th« census oflice
and rations for the turbulent Sioux or with
the Fortifications Hill, both of which are
expected to be ivaiiy lor consideration by

Washington, Dec. 7.— Tlie unofficial list
of meuibers-elect of the Fifty-second Con
gress, compiled in the office of Mcl'herson,
Clerk of tho House, made its appearance
yesterday in a document issued from the
Clerk's office. The li»t was criticized by the
Democrats as being wrong In two Instances,
the Second California District being given
to iilanchard (U.) instead of Camiuetti (D.),
and the Twenty-eighth or Elmira District of
New York being put down as uncertain,
whereas tho Democrats claim that Kockwell
has been elected over Noyes by 14 plurality.
Tlie priotrd list gives \IM Democrats, sa lie
publicans, tt Farmers' Alliance, 1 vacancy
and 1 uncertain. This figuring would give
the Democrats IV, majority over all, or 140

THE BOTTOMLESS PIT.
Florida Glrli Had n Narrow Kuc.ipe From
Bniiig Kiiculf. <l.
Mr. Ilarry Hums, the passenger ngent of
the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad,
has just lelurned from a trip to the land of
flowers. Mr. Bums says that some youne
ladies of Jasper, which is on the lino of
the Georgia Southern in Hamilton County,
Florida, went out to visit a cave a mile or
so from town. The esve was a small one,
of but, little length, but it was an interesting
filaco and was much visited by people living
n t!:e loc-aiitv.
It was thought to be an old lime sink, such
as abound in many parts of Florida, aud the
floor of the cave resyunded to the tread as
though there was a areat cavity underneath.
The young girls noticed that lumps of earth
would occasionally loosen themselves from
the rnof and walls of the cave and fall to
the floor, bnt they thought nothing of it,
and, when it bei:an to grow dark, they left
the cavern and started honip. Before they
had gone half a milo they heard a deep
rumbling noise in the direction of the rave,
but thought it was distant thunder, and
paid no further attention to it.
The next day the young Indies were much
startled to learn from a visiting ueighbor
that the big lime sink had fallen in the even
ing before, leaving a chasm of unknown
depth. All day they were nervous from
thinking how narrowly they had escaped an
Mr. Burns says that the term "bottomless
pit" graphically describes the appearance of
the Jasper lime -ink, according to what was
told him by a man who went to see it on
Sunday. The man said that a hole big
enough to swallow a ten-mom bouse had
fallen in, leaving walls as straight as those
of a well, except that they slanted to one
side. As far down as he could see the
chasm ended in darkness, but tiiere was no
bottom in sight. Away down there in the
midnight blackness there was running wa

river in the distance, came up from the pit.

Kj. VV. Duiili mi, a prominent Kensington
man, died this morning, says the Ilarlford
Courant, from the effects of an accident
which happened to him Saturday uiorning
while working at his occupation as a butcher.
Mr. Dunhnm wns dressing a hog, and as he
drew the body toward him, a knife, which
lay unnoticed upon the bench, was thrust
into his groin, rutting an artery. Dr. Giliin
of Berlin was aem lor, aud when lie arrived
it was found that surgical aid was necessary,
and Drs. Lyon and Comings of New Britain
were summoned. The flow of blood was
checked, the wound was dressed, and the
patient left in a comfortable condition.
During tbe night Mr. Dunham awoke,
and, thinking he was bleeding again, sent
for Dr. Gillin, but when tbo doctor arrived
Mr. Dunham had passed away. This led
the doctor to believe that auother artery
must have been cut, so an examination was
held this afternoon, aud, as no trace of
arterial blood was found upon the bandage,
it was certain that the man had not bled to
death, and the only theory given is that, as
the patient was very weak from loss of
blood, the sudden thought that he was bleed
ing to death caused a shock which stopped
the pulsations of the heart, or, in other
words, the man was frightened to death.
MAN AND WIFE DROWNED.
Alderman Andrew* nnd Wif.. Skite to
Their Death in thn Asslntbuine Itlvir.
A double drowning accident occurred on
the Assiniboine River, at Winnepeg, the
victims being Alderman Andrews and his
wife, who were enjoying a skate, on the ice.
Shortly after 5:30 o'clock, in the darkness,
they skated into open wat«r, there being a
big space which had not been frozen over
near Muiu-street bridge. It is supposed that
Mrs. Andrews was skatiug backward with
her husband behind her, and that they
never noticed their danger until they plunged
into the water. A person named Chisholm
who was on the river bank saw the accident,
and made efforts to push a plank to their as
sistance, but it being frozen to the ground
he was unable to get it to them. In tho
meantime Andrews gallantly and desper
ately struggled to save hia wife's and his
own life, and she called loudly for help.
His frantic efforts lasted for lour or five
minutes, when ihe icy waters chilled them
through and they ga"ve up. Finally they
sank lo the bottom. It was not known for
some hours who were the victims of ttie
accident, and when they did not return
home to dinner and their whereabouts
could not not be ascertained, the conviction
was forced upen the minds of their anxious
friends and relatives that they were the un
fortunate ones. The river was immediately
grappled, but it was not until 1 o'clock In
the morning that Alderman Andrews' body
was recovered, and twelve hours later his
wife's body was brought up. His watch
had stopped at seventeen minutes to 6
O'clock. Alderman Andrews, who was the
senior member of the law firm of Andrews
& Andrews, represented Ward 1 in the City
Council and was in his thirty-fifth year.
Last summer he married Miss Mcliean,
daughter of Ber. Mr. Meßean of Winnipeg,
he being a widower. She was in her
twentieth year. Mr. Andrews' little child
by the former marriage was for some time
waiting on the river bank for their home
coming. The deepest regret is felt at the
terrible affair, aud ll. igs are Hying at half
mast over the civic buildings.— Toronto Em
A BiiUTAL OUTKAGE.
Mill Jennie Kennedy's Terrible Expert
enco llnh it 11 -l.nl Vlllnln.
News was received at Springfield, Mo., of
a terrible und fiendish crime which was
committed four miles from Ash Grove.
Miss Jenny Kennedy, aged lG years, went
from home to a spring about 'MO yards dis
tant after a bucket of water. When she ar
rived at the spring she was seized by a
masked man, gagged and carried to a tree,
about a quarter of a mile distant, to which
she was tied with a toestring and her apron
fastened over her head. The fiend gashed
her with n ki.tfe, cutting her from the neck
downward, and then putting wood arouud
her set lire to it, as with tin* intention of
burning her alive. He inflicted no other
violence. About the time tlie fire had
ignited her home-spun clothing Thomas
Phillips and a lured hand drove by, near
enough for the fiend and his victim to hear
tbe sounds of the wagon. The masked man
then ran away. The girl was able then to
keep the fire from doing her any serious
Tlie family became alarmed at her contin
ued abseui-e, aud her brother-in-law went to
the spring, and not rinding her gave the
alarm, and within half an hour a party went
to search for her. Gulled by a faint scream
they lound the girl, who was almost dead
with frUhtand pain. She had worked the
gag out of her mouth wish much difficulty.
The whole neighborhood was soon aroused,
and scores of men at last accounts were
searching lor the perpetrator oi the outrage,
llis identity is not positively known. The
girl was carried home, and her wounds
found to be dangerous. She said she recog
nized the knife used as belonging to Wilson
Balers, a yonne man to whom she was en
gaged last fall, but with whom she broke
tbe engagement on account of his having
u:ade certain proposals to tier. The man
who assaulted her tohl her he was hired to

KHODA MITCHELL'S LONKLY LIFE.
Uiitury of th? Indinua ilrrmit Recently
Mnnl«.reil Npxr North Vprii«n.
The dead body of Rboda Mitchell was dis
covered on September 10th, in her barn near
Martiusville, Ind., chopped to pieces with
an axe. Two months of diligent investiga
tion has failed to throw any light on the
affair. Rhuda Jlitchell was a singular char
acter. Eight years ago she lived iv .Mont
gomery, Ohio. Her lover jilted her on her
wedding day and married another woman.
Then she camo to Indiana and purchased a
farm seven miles east of North Vernon,
in Jennings County. She iived alone for
eight years, managing her farm, and never
allowed a man to enter her house.
Once some female neighbors called,
but were so coolly received that tbe
visit was never repeated. She soon became
known as "the hermit," and her premises
were shunned except by those, who had
busin«S93 with her. The interior of her
house was finely finished. In her wardrobe
were over one hundred line dresses, many
of the finest texture. A number of choice
literary publications were also found in her
rooms, together with a two-bushel basket
full of clippings from newspapers that
seemed to have taken her fancy. She kept
a diary noting the events of each day. The
last eu try is dated September 10th. and as
her body was not found until the 10th it is
thought she was murdered the evening of
the 10th. Her hatred of men being well
known by the neighbors accounts for the
body not being discovered sooner. Oa a
farm in Tennessee she has a sister living in
exactly the same circumstances. The re
mains were taken in charge by a brother in
Ohio. Tlib house was open, and a gold watch
and chain and smiie money were found un
disturbed, which indicates that robbery was
not the motive of the murder. It is believed
that she went to the barn on the evening of
the 10th and found a tramp there. Being
entirely fearless she probably attacked him
and he killed her in the straggle.— Chicago
A LEAF TO DEATH.
An t'likimwn Sl. in Who Jumped Over the
At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon a small
boy who was playing on the Palisades saw
a middle-aged man pass him and walk to
the brink of the precipice.
The Baa acted in a strange manner, and
the boy stopped his play to watch his move
ments. The man seemed preoccupied and
did not appear to notice the lad. He locked
over the edge of the Palisades and ihen
drew bark, apparently satialied that he had
chosen the right spot. He noxt threw his
overcoat over and leaned down over the edge
to watch its descent.
The next instant ne flung his arms over
his head and jumped over the brink. The
boy, who had been watching his actions
with the utmost interest, gave a shout and
sprang to the edge of the cliff. For a me
nient he hesitated to look over. Wfeu he
did. hu gazed far down tlie cliff, which at
this point rises In a straight wall from the
Hudson River below. Far down the face of
the cliff he faw the body of the man. It lay
perfectly still. The buy ran home and told
For some reason the authorities were not
notified until 9 o'clock last night. A party
was then made up and the searchers passed
along the foot of the cliff until they finally
reached the spot where the suicide lay.
They found him 173 feet from the top of the

Special to The Mornixo Call
Washington, Dec. 7.— The obstacles just
now in the path of the Election Bill grow
chiefly out of the contention of the last ses
sion in the Republican ranks between the
free-coinage and anli-frce-coinage men. By
a curious coincidence a few decided oppo
nents of the Election Bill on tha Republi
can side are leading advocates of free coin
age. Plumb, Teller, Paddock, Stewart and
others are now insisting that the silver law
of the long session must be displaced by a
new free-coinage measure, and they are ar
ranging to strike a bargain over the Elec
tion Bill in such a way as to insure their
success with the free-coinage measure later
in the winter. If a great majority of the
Republican Senators will concede what they
demand as to silver they will turn in and
help enforce a rule which will take away
from the minority in the Senate its veto
power over legislation. Otherwise they are
6aid to threaten the renewal of ttieir alli
ance of last spring with the minority.

Catarrh to Consumption.
Catarrh in its destructive force stands next to and
undoubtedly leads on to consumption. It Is, there
fore, singular that those afflicted with this rearful
disease shouM not make it the object of their lives
to rid themselves of It. Deceptive remedies coa
cocted by ignorant pretender) to medical knowledge
have weakened the confidence of the great majority
of sufferers in ail advertised remedies. They l>«
-come resigned to a life of misery rattier than tortura
themselves with doubtful palliatives.
But this will never do. Catarrh mast he met at
every stage and combated with all our mr-ht In
many cases the disease has assumed dangerous srinp
toms. The bones and curtilage of the nose, the or
gans of hearing, of seeing and of tasting so affected
as to be useless, the uvula so elongated, the throat
so Inflamed and irritated, as to produce a constant

Catarrh, from a simple head cold to the most loath
