Ci.i.vfciaNL, Nov. -L Detail of a tdart lin tr;ij'--ily occurring in Knox county reached here thi morning. liiadeiiibur U a icuiill village of k-.4 than l.OuO inhabitants, situated about twelve mile south of Mount Vernon, the county t;it. For many years prior to hist winter there was no saloon in town. In February a man named John Chaj-in moved with hi family from .doom Vcmon to liladeiiaburjj and opened a saloon to tho treat di-ut of the citizen, inort of them prohi bitionist. Ch;iin took up hU residence in a hou.te in the rear of hU saloon. During the pat summer much feelinj became man ife.'Ud brt.vten Chaiin an i the leading prohibitionist. of the place. Between mid night and day break on Sunday morning a mob of men composed of leading prohibi-tioni-t.-, hearing axerf, pick' and .shovels, made a furious assault upon the saloon and residence. Ch.ioin refused them admittance and they pelted hi hoasu with stones, one of which, pa.dn;xturou0'h a window, struck Chapin on the head, fracturing his skull and throwing him to the tioor. The mob then forced a way through the rear of the houo into the saloon, opened the front doora and P ro -eeded to completely destroy with aie.s the bar, tixturesaiid furniture of theplace. Tiny the a took the. stock of liquors and piled them in the :treet. Barrels of whisky were then rolled from the cellar, and the whole stock was made a hnye bon&re in the center of the street. In the meantime Chapiu was found to bv fatally injured. Some of the mob were despatched to Mt. Vernon for medical aid. Two physicians arrived early yesterday morning, but thr-y were too late, Chapin havimr breathed his lat. He leaves a wife and several childeu. There is intense ex citement throughout Knox county over the outrage. A band of Mt. Vernon roughs swear they will avenge Chapin'd death, and more trouble is feared. FIRE IN CHICAGO. A Lare;e.

Washington, Nov. 21. The general opin ion of congressmen who have arrived in Washington is that but little business of a general character will be transacted during the coming session. Tho Appropriation committee will hold a meeting the last of this week, and it is said that Mr. Randall expects to bring in bills enough early next week to occupy the time of the House up to the holiday recess. That will surdy consume the time continuously after recess until all appropriation bills are passed. A strong c-IIort will by made by tho Louisiana delega tion to secure an early recess in order that members desiring to do so may attend the opening of tho World's Cotton Exposition on the 10th proximo.

All the townships had bee n re-counted at adjournment with the ex ception of Snlem City. Errors in favor of both candidates have been discovered, but so evculy divided that there is little doubt of th ehctiun of Wyatt Mills, the Republi can candidate by about l.'i majority. His election will give thf Republican a majority of two in tho Senate and fourteen on joint ballot. The Catholic Divorce Law. Baltimore, Md., Nov. 21. At to-day's !e"irn of the House of Bihop of tho Plen ary council, it i understood that the ques tion brought up for dicnsion wi that of ili? orce.

SHOT BY A BLACKSMITH A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT. A Captain of a Schooner is Terribly Wounded From a Gun in the Hands of a Friend. Baltimoke, Nov. 21. Capt. Charles Smith, of the sehxner Ocean Wave, which arrived here this afternoou, reporU a dis tressing and probably fatal case of accident al shooting which occurred last Thursday night at Cornfield Harbor, Saint Mary's county." On that night Capt. Wm. Hitchens, of the schooner Levinia Insley, Baltimore, and several of his crew were invited to stay all night at tho residence of tho village blacksmith. While the party were seated in a sitting-room, the host, it is stilted, went outside and returned with a gun which he aimed at on-y of the men. llitchens seeing the action, jumped up just as the blacksmith pulled the trigger. The captain received the full contents of the gun in his head, and fell bleeding and uncon scious to tho floor. The charge entered just above the bridge of the nose and destroyed both eyes. The pcalp on' the left side of his headvas torn into shreds, and he will die. The victim was brought to Washington to-dav t 4 placed in Providence Hospital. The shooting is said to have been accidental as far as Capt. Hitcheus was con cerned, but it is said that the blacksmith in tended the shot for one of his crew. The blacksmith is still at large. THE UNMANLY ART. Charley Mitchell and Jack Burke Spoil Each Other's Noses. New Youk, Nov. 24. There was no trouble in obtaining a seat in the Madbon Square garden to-night, as there were not 400 spec tators who presented themselves to witness the sparring contest between Charley Mitch ell and Jack Burke. The "show" was an nounced to begin at a quarter past eight, but it was past nine before the first contestant for fistic honors appeared npon the platform. These were quickly fol lowed by others. All gave some excellent exhibitions of scientific boxing and were loudly applauded. Just before "the stars of evening" were introduced Bob Smith, master of ceremonies, announced that as the author ities prohibited Mitchell and Burke from contesting eight rounds, they would spar three, thus doing away with the services of seconds. When Mitchell and Burke appeared on the platform, they were enthusiastically cheered, as both men seemed "fit" and equally matched. Their supiorter3 seemed to be an even thing. Round 1. As soon s as time was called Burke led off at Mitchell's head with Ms right, aud landed lightly, Mitchell counter ing on Burke's mouth. Burke retaliated on Mitchell's face, Mitchell let go both hands on side of his opponent's head. His next at tenlpt was a light tap on Burke's forehead, Burke planting a little one on Mitchell's chest. This he followed up by a clever hit on the eye, after which he countered on Mitchell's mouth four times, Mitchell return ing with either short or light, but he rallied near the end and got home on Burke's nose. Time 1:30. Round 2. This time Mitchell made a play at Burke's face but fell short. He ducked to avoid Burke's counter, but in doing so plac ed his head in chancery and Burke slung his right beliind his back, catching Mitchell on the nose. Burke then scored light on Mitch ell's mouth. Mitchell, still short with his returns, managed to go home in cross coun ter on Burke's ear, giving Burke an opening which he took advantage of by planting a clean, heavy hit on the mouth. The round was brought to a close by Mitchell swinging on the mouth. Round 3. Mitchell sent in his left, landing on Burke's nose. Burke countered him heavily, landing on the cheek with his right. They were then at close quarters. Mitchell rattled away with both hands, but before getting back he scored on the side of Burke's head. Next came some very light exchanges, Burke varying the monotony by landing on the nose very heavily. The rally which fol lowed was more like a boxing lesson. Tho general opinion of tho disgusted spectators was that glove boxing i3 killed in this city, at'Jeast for the present. Burkn is acknowl edged by professionals present to have had the best of it. ANOTHER OHIO SENSATION. A Lady Dies While Being Treated by a Spiritualistic Doctor. Cleveland, Nov. 2L Meagre particulars have reached here concerning a sensation which is causing great excitement at Gam bier, Ohio. For some time past Sarali Wel- ker, of that city, has been under the treat ment of Dr. George Burres, a spiritualistic physician. Mrs. Welkcr, it now appears, died while under the influence of tho physi cian. It was given out that she was in a trance, but it was announced to-day that she had been dead since Wednesday. Tho coro ner is invest igating, and the woman's friends are terribly excited. THE SWAIM CASE. Adjourned Until Next Monday at Grosvenor's Request. Washington, Nov. 21.

Both the eiek jurymen were in their eaU this morning for the trial of Dan Holcomb. Capt. Crouch, ol Texas, was with the other numbers of the family and said ha was jat from New Mexico. The ieople wanted to continue the testi mony of Julia Reese, but that witness could not be found John Gibon, of this city,-a dealer in boots and shoes, was put on the stand. He testified that Judd Crouch bought a pair of the Bos ton Rubber Company's make of rubier boots of witness on November 21, 1KK3. Judd eta t-d he wanted a pair or his father, as he was tired seeing him going with wet feet. The boots were of the best make and had liner creasing on the soles than other boots. Judd afterwards paid the bill. Sheriff Winney testified concerning his trip ap to Ogemaw county in company with Detective Harris and Kiid that they found Dan Holcomb had bought a liS-calibre re volver at Lansing and that witness and Har ris afterward had an interview in Harris's room with Holcomb. Tho latter then ad mitted that he had bought a .S-calibre Smith fc Wesson revolver at Lansing in the October before the murder, and had taken it up to give to his brother William, but had lot it in the woods. Holcomb stated that his rea son for going to seo his brother was to in duce him to come hero and live. The de fense objected to tho sheriff stating what Uolcomb's manner was at the interview. The sheriff attached no importance to the boots, as in his opinion they did not corres pond in size with tho tracks about the hodse the morning of the murder. The court will adjourn for one hour to at tend Prosecuting Attorney Hewlett's funeral to-morrow forenoon. THE TYPE-WRITING GIRL. She Supersedes the Stenographer anr Him, lias Various Eccentricities. Brooklyn Eagle. The stenographer is rapidly being suc ceeded by the type-writer. Men who have devoted years of work and have brought considerable intelligence to tho art of sten ography are pushed out of tho field by nimble-fingered girls, who apparently have a special aptitude for this sort of work. There arc now several schools in New York where type-writing is taught, and almost every pretentious law office In town has ita own operator. Men are too clumsy to ac quire great facility at this sort of work, and it seems especially suited to women. The advantages which it possesses over tho older fashion is that the work is finished when tho operator has reached the end. A largo element of uncertainty enters into life when ono employs a stenographer. I havo had some experience that way my self, and it has not been of a char acter to predispose mo strongly in their favor. Tho average stenog rapher,, after you havo , dictated ycur tork 't3 aha, will assure you with an unblushing countenance and an honest eye that it will be written out for you by "three o'clock." If you dictate six col umns and finish by 2:30 you will receive the same placid assurance about "throo o'clock," as though there were ten hours to spare. And the peculiar thing about it is that tho stenographer invariably believes what ho says. I don't know what is the cause of this peculiar fancy, but it is ap parently rooted in every stenographer's brain. Of course you never get tho stuff by "three o'clock. If you havo luck when you look for him in heat and anger tho fol lowing day you will find him Ink stained but dignified, and you will receive the same cast-iror assurance as you did before, that it will bo through by "three o'clock." "With the typo-writing girls it is different. As a rule they aro busy copying Supreme Court papers which, by tho way, they la y aside without th slightest regret, and they are apparently tho only people who look with contempt upon the Supreme Court, and be gin at onco to prepare for work. Tho prep aration is tho longest part of it. After a few general remarks about tho weather, she removes her rings one after the other, looks at them carefully, places them in an orderly row besido tho type-writer, pulls a hairpin out of the forward part of her bang, examines it, and then thrusts it with un questioned belligerence into the back of her hfad. Then she yawns prodigiously, leans back in her chair, and says he is ready. When you begin sho suddenly rememliors, rises from the machine, goes to the wash stand, toys with tho faucets for a few mo ments, touches the ends of her fingers to the towel, then comes back by the way of the mirror. I have become convinced, by long " experience, that tho average female type-writer never really cores to wash her hands. It is a strategic subterfuge for the purpose of affording her an opportunity to loo': in the mirror. She returns, throws herself carelessly Into the chair, and brisk ly puts a tdieet of paper into tho machine. Uaviug douo this, sho withdraw the pa per, turns it around and puts it in in that way. This is a system thoy never depart from nnder any circumstances. She is not ready ye , however. At this point it Incomes nocessRry to rpf n a small drawer at the right md sidaof tho type-writer, fish out a more or less showy purse, glance critically and somewhat sadly within, throwing the purse back again, and bring forth an ink eraser, a rablx-r, a fruit knife aula half eaten apple vt peach. Some one will prob ably Interrupt hrr for a quift chat, and af ter tbrt if you are still there you will Ik? thoroughly started. Once un U r way, an expert type-writer is folly ah fa?t as the averat stenographer, and wbf n you have finished dirtMing yon may talc? th marn script away with you. I have oberred one peculiarity alout the fmal type writer. Mi--- r. -ver maks a ir:is'a.. It is ftlwayn thf n-jachine. If she pt;ts nptKfn vowels in the word 'through" she first hits th keyboard violently, an I then raises the roof of th t cture, pokes at the tyj with h r Ert finger, iTjulgcs in some airy critkisnvs of thrasr,nactrrrr, brinr tb? vthcle thing tv lher .tain, an 1 continap to rnak h r.v-t grierons and absurd f r rors with a fac-s of i,ttr satisfaction &nd r.nrn1ed hih sir.ts.

It was explained by a representative of the company present that fouie two hund red subscribers were waiting to use the electric time connections, and that iles would not be necessary for probably some time. Aids. Ne?ter and Gilbe rt thought it should be done under the Euperri?ion of pome comjeteut authority, and the former said a net work of wires running from build ing to building was 8pt to make trouble for the fire department in working at fires.

The property owners on Grand avenue, who were notified to lay board walks, akicl that the work bo delayed until next Spring; referred to the Aldermen of the Fourth ward. O. X. Watson was given permission to de posit building material on the sidewalks. The petition of A. Wiseman, contractor, for improvements made on Front street, com pleted about September 1.1, and amounting to $2S71.20, asking that that amount be now paid, was referred to tho Committee on Ways and Means. The prayer of James Higginsj for payment cf money due for con structing the piers of the Bridge street bridge, was granted, and the emount ordered to be transferred from the general to the bridge fund, for that purpose. The bonds of tho tax collectors of the Sev enth, Sixth, Fifth and Eighth Wards were re ferred to the City Attorney, and after ap proval were confirmed by the Council. The City Controller's report, with the exception of the item of Deputy Sheriff's billreferred to the Committee on Claims and Accounts was approved and orders directed to be draun for the several amounts- Aids. Saunders, Xc jteT and Brenner were apiointed a special committee to settle for grading and gravel ling on Page street. City Marshal Green asked for on extension of thirty days in collecting the assessment rolls for improvements on James and Front streets. The request was granted. The Al dermen of the First Ward were instructed to ascertain the cost of certain property belong ing to Abram llage, Wm. and Grady Zim merman and Jacob Brndernan, necessary for tho straightening of the north lino of l'res cott street. A communication from Judge Holmes, thanking tho Council for improve ments made in his office and court room, w as placed on file. Secretary McReyuolds of the Board of I'o lice and Fire Commissioners made a re port of the condition of street lights; referred to Committee on Lamps. Aid. Gilbert reported the result cf an ef fort to make a contract with the Sheriff of Kent county to board city prisoners at a re duced rate and to give them employment. The committee found that the rate of board was fixed by the County Supervisors and the employment of prisoners to assist in. the es sential work about the jail impracticable. They recommended that the Committee on Charter Amendments be requested to in quire into whatever legislation is nece ssary to cover the cao; the report was adopted. Aid.
