large redemptions of the years 1N75 and 1871)
were to fome extent due to the depression in
business .succeeding the financial and com
mercial panic of 1S7:J. The comparatively
small redemptions in the last five years,
l-N-ls-d, may be attributed to the re
covery during tho-e jears from
the effects of that panic, the increased ac
tivity of business and the benefits attending
the resumption of sjecie payments. The
statistics of the ten years show tho redemp
tions invariably afTected by business eea

when tmd is active, and increasing in mid
winter and midsummer when trade is dull.

HOLCOMB'S TRIAL.
A New Witness Creates a Sensation
in the Case.
Jxckson, Mich., Nov. J.- Five of the jury
men in the Holeomb trial went to Parma
yesterday and had dinner with Juror Hrowu's
people. Deputy Videto watched over them,
and all ftlt wll to-day but Orthaniel Pres
ton. He had to call on a physician lat even
ing. He was home better this morning and
idl were in their seats w hen court opened.
The testimony to-day was to identify the
bullets from the Crouch house as Wing from
i thirty-eight calibre Smitlf & Weston pistol,
and to five the result of experiments made
by John N. Squire, Walter Johnson and
others, with different kinds of revolvers,
tending to show that tho bullets found in the
Innlies were tdtot from such a weapon. The
witnesses talcd that eiierimcuts provetl
that the bullets that killed the people in the
Crouch house were fired from such a pistol.
Several witne.-ses who were wanted could
not be found and court adjourned until after
noou. A sensation was produced this afternoon by
Frank Manson, of Montcalm county, swear
ing that he rode from Hay City to Ogemaw
with Dan Holeomb ou tho cars in October,
Holeomb showed Manson a thirty
eight calibre Smith it Weston revolver and
said he was going to visit his brother. This
was after Holeomb claimed ho had lost the
revolver. Man-on, who bears a first-class
reputation, identified Daniel Holeomb on
the street to-day, having never seen him
before since, the conversation occurred till
to-day.
COMPLETED HIS INVESTIGATION.
Inspector Davis, of New York, is Prob
ably a Blackmailer.
Boston, Xov. '.V. A Washington special
says: Assistant Secretary Coon this morn
ing completed and handed to Secretary Mc
Culioch, the results of the investigation
which has been made into the charges
against Theo. Davis, Tea Inspector of New
York. Davis is accused of blackmailing six
Hoston tea-imiHirting firms out of $100 each,
which they paid rather than subject them
selves to the annoyance which- he would be
able to inflict upon them. Secretary Mc
Culloch said to a Ilecortl correspondent this
forenoon he did not think it best that tho
names of tho Hoston houses should be made
known until he had decided the case which,
he expects to do in a few days. In admit
ting that he received money, Davis says it
was for pay a3 a lobbyist, in getting tea leg
islation through Congress. This will not
help him much at the Secretary's hands,
especially as the evidence brought to Coon'
notice is said to be .sufficient to have caused
him to recommend Davis's dismissal. Davis
is a New York politician, who was appointed
by Jndge Folker.
LARGE FIRE AT PITTSBURG.
A Fireman Falls Through an Open
Elevator.
Pittsburg, Nov. 2S At 8:S0 this evening
fire wa3 discovered in the large four-story
wholesale and retail furniture and upholstery
establishment of E. Edmonson & Son. Clio
Smithfield street. By strenuous effort on
the part of the firemen the flames were
confined to the building, which with its
contents, was almost entirely destroyed.
The loss on furniture and upholstery stock
is pLaced at about $4.",000, while the damage
to the building, owned by John Daub, is
estimated from $20,XK) to A2.",000. Insur
ance on furniture, etc., $;50,(H0; on building,
$15,000. The adjoining buildings were
slightly damaged. Leonard Smith, a fire
man, was painfully injured by a fall through
an open elevator. It is supposed the fire was
caused by the spontaneous combustion of
varnish and oil in the basement.
A Colored Citizen Treed.
ANXiroLis, Md., Nfv. 2S.W. D. Parsons,
a farmer of the third district, while passing
near Newbridge, saw the body a colored man
hanging on a small dogwood tree just off tho
highway yesterday. Tho feet were within
six inches of the ground. Parsons, upon
examination, found the corpse to be that of
George Briscoe, a colored desperado. Parsons
notified Dr. Crane, and Coroner Jacob. A
jury was at once summoned, and after n
short deliberation rendered a verdict that
the deceased came to his death by hanging
at the hands of unkuown parties. The
lynchers, whoever they may be, kept their
own counsel, and it is impossible to suspect
their identity.

BUSINESS INTERESTS.
MINERS RESUMING THEIR WORK.
The Hocking Valley Strike Virtually
Ended Mills at Fall River and
Elsewhere Resuming.
Columlu, O., Nov. 23. The active oieas
ures recently taken by the bheriffs of Hock
ing, Athens aud Perry counties, seconded by
the officers of the C. II. V, t T. It. It. Co.
coal exchange syndicate ojerators indicating
a determined and persistent effort to end the
mining troubles, is likely soon to prove suc
cessful. Already over thirty of the intimi
dators liave been placed in jail and indict
ments found in a majority of cases. It is
believed the United States forces will be
brought into use to gather in a large number
who have been intimidating others, making
attacks upon guards and persons whom they
wished to prevent from working at reduced
rates. The Uuchtel miners, are again running
to their fullest capacity, and work in tlie
others is being gradually increased. One
hundred and sixty-five cars were loaded in
the Hocking Coal and Iron Company's mines
yesterday, which indicated that the trouble
is virtually ended.
The Pittsburg Coopers.
PiTTSDUiiO, Pa., Nov. 'JS.The 000 em
ployees of the coopernge department of the
Standard Oil Company in this city were
paid off to-day, and the establishment closed
indefinitely on account of overstock and no
demand for barrels. At other factories not
controlled by the Standard tho outlook is
better.
Fall Uiveii, Mass., Nov. 28. All the
mills started up this morning. There is de
cidedly a good feeling among manufactur
ers, caused by the stiffening in prices of
print cloth. The mills will all run next
week. The general opinion is that it will not
be necessary to stop during the winter.
Business Brightening.
Pittsduko, Pa., Nov. 28. Shoenberger fc
Co.'s two iron mills, which have been closed
for some time, started up on full time this
morning in all departments, giving employ
ment to 000 hands. The firm has sufficient
orders to keep running steadily.
"Bystreet's" Reports.
New Yoek, Nov. 28. There were 237 fail
ures in the United States reported to Brad
street's during the week, against 251 the
proceeding week, 232, and 158 in the cor
responding weeks of 1883, 1882 and 1881 re

A Bishop Resigns.
Baltimobe, Nov. 28. At this afternoon's
session of the Plenary Council, the resigna
tion of the Most Rev. Charles J. Seghess, as
Archbishop of Oregon, was tendered and
accepted.
An Earthquake.
Paris, Nov. 28. A shock of an earthquake
was felt at Lyons, Marseilles and other
places in the south of Franco to-day. Much
alarm was caused but there were serious re
sults. A Territory Bought.
London, Nov. 28. It is 6tated that the ter
ritory of Sheikh said quesfaden, in Egypt,
has been sold to a German firm.
Gorman's Dinner.
Senator Gorman's complimentary dinner
in Baltimore on the evening of Dec 11 bids
fair to rival the famous Dorsey dinner.
'The banquet will be served," as the Balti
more papers tell, "in the foyer of the Acad
emy of Music, where tho galleries will be
thrown open to the ladies of subscribers.
Tho subscriptions, at 20 each, are limited
to 150, tho dinner cards admitting two ladies
or a lady and gentleman escort to the gal
leries. The dinner is fixed for 7 o'clock and
the galleries will open at 8:30, before the
speaking is begun. Invitations will be sent
to President-elect Cleveland and VicefPresi-dent-elect
Hendricks and the former is ex
pected and the latter will almost certainly
come. About 200 will be at the dinner 150
subscribers and 50 by invitation."
Soured on Cuban Sugar.
The Louisiana sugar-planters are putting
on their war paint by way of preparation for
the fight against the ratification of the Span
ish reciprocity treaty. There are only three
or four hundred of them, but they have
large capital invested in tho business and
employ a good many laborers. The admis
sion of Cuban sugar free would prove a
death blow to their industry, unless they
were paid a bounty by the government. The
contest over the ratification of the treaty
promises to be a very warm one.
A Desperate Doctor.
Dr. John Maxwell, of Springfield, Ohio,
gave his four children a mixture of aconite
and chloroform, wrapped their faces in
cloths saturated in the poison, and placed
them on a !cd. Then ho took a similar dose,
and made the same preparations for death.
When Mrs. Maxwell returned sho found one
of the little ones dead and the others uncon
scious, two of them dying during Wednesday
night. The doctor revived and has been im
prisoned. He says he was tired of living,
and wanted the children to go with him.

THANKSGIVING CHARITIES.
Superintendent Perry Closes Up and
Balances his Books.
Superintendent Perry balanced up the ac
count of his stewardship as distributor and
collector of the Thanksgiving charities yes
terday. The fum total of the charity, which
was bo spontaneously and gracefully donated,
and thankfully received by the poor and the
unfortunate, wtu tlJ.20. Of this fum,
$375.18 was variously eiended, leaving a
balance of $y.C2. Among contributions
not previously fully acknowledged, were $5
from the P. A. 1J. Club, collect d from
among the dancers at their ball Wednesday
evening, and $12.30, twenty-five iounds of
flour and four cans of oyster from the
friends of Detective Connolly.
Of the perishable goods, quite a quantity
was given to "The Little Sisters" and a like
quantity to the U. B. A. Home and St.
Mark's Home. To make the balance com
plete and the distribution as equitable as pos
sible, the latter iastitution will be given the
balance of cash on hand. Too much credit
cannot be given to the Committee, Messrs.
Houseman, Weston and Perry, and those
who assisted them in their work of charity
and love. Officer Howell, the expert driver
of the Police van, deserves special mention
for the interest, care and kindliness he
showed in helping in tlie work of distribu
tion. AMUSEMENTS.
Patti Rosa's Engagement at Redmond's
" Lights o London."
An avalanche of local new prevents The
Telegram going into detail and saying the
many good things it would like to in praise
of Patti Rosa's "Mizpah" and her excellent
company. The bright, sparkling little sou
brette was greeted with full houses at Red
mond's on Thanksgiving afternoon and
evening, and also by a well-filled house last
night. Some have located Patti Rosa in the
Minnie Palmer school. Why Minnie Pal
mer should be credited tho founder of a
school she never originated is unexplained.
Patti Rosa is original, and, in the main part
of her acting, displays a peculiar style un
like any cotemporary soubrette. She is bet
ter than ever, full of life and vigor. She
sings well and dances gracefully, being ac
corded many recalls. The play, though not
strong in plot, is just what the public like
because it is full of fun and frolic
The supporting company all contribute ma
terially and effectively in making the play
amusing. Mr. Jolm W. Dunne, a thoroughly
capable an intelligent actor, acting as An
toine Mardi, that was remarkable for its con
sistency, grace, and evidence of withheld
force. Misse9 Lester and Williams were
also, conspicuous for good work. The play
will be repeated this afternoon, and the en
gagement will close with to-night's enter
tainment. "The Lights of London."
It is unnecessary to make any extended
referrence to the reappearance of "Lights o'
London" at Powers's next Monday and
Tuesday evenings. The company this yea.
is one of the best on the road, headed by the
well-known actor, Atkins Lawrence. The
company is playing in Chicago this week at
Haverley's. The press bestows especial
1raise on both company and scenery, the
atter being entirely new and gotten up en
tirely for the metropolitan productions of
the play.
THE WATSON SEDUCTION CASE.
Every Effort will be Made to Secure a
New Trial.
The verdict of $2,000 damages awarded
the plaintiff in the Watson versus Watson
seduction case, was a genuine surprise to
many who listened to its details, but to none
more so than to the defendant's attorneys.
In a conversation last evening with Mr.
Maynard, of the defence, a Telegram re
porter learned from that gentleman, that
during the time, forty days, which has beeh
granted by the court for a stay of proceed
ings, every .effort will be made to secure a
new trial and in the event of a failure the
Supreme Court will be appealed to. "We
felt perfectly confident of obtaining a ver
dict," said Mr. Maynard, "and that we had
established Mr. Watson's innocence beyond
a peradventure. We know he is innocent, by
reason of, if nothing else, his physical inca
pacity to perform tho act with which he was
accused, a point which the prosecution did
not even attempt to refute or rebut. Mr.
Watson could have settled the caso long ago,
with much less money than the verdict call
for, but his honor would have been com
promised and that ho will defend to the
bitter end. He is in moderate circumstance
and lives quietly on a small farm not far
from this city. We still have st rong hopes of
securing justice for him.
AN EXPENSIVE WALTZ.

THE SATURDAY POST" TRADE.
The Supposed New Proprietor Dis
pleased with His Trade A Race
for the Alcona County Paper.
It has been known for borne time among
newspaper men that negotiations were land
ing for a trade bttween Mr. Hallock, of the
Saturday Evrnu.rj i'osf, and J. K. Fairchild,
of the Alcojui County Jlrtiew, for an ex
change of uewsp:it r property. The latter
gentleman desirtd, ow ing to tlie fact that
many of his relatives resided in this vicinity,
and also on account of his former residence
in this county, to embark in journalism in
this city. It was formally announced
in the last issue of the W that
tho trade had been concludt4 and Mr. F.
would take iossessiou, and though tlie news
pair people of the city were not apprised
of the details of the trade, it was known that
Mr. Fairchild came here on Wednesday of
tins week. It is understood that tlie trans
fers were made of the newspaper offices and
property of the Alcona County Jltriew, to
gether with certain real estate at Ilarrisville,
by Fairchild to Halleck, and tlie Saturxlay
Evening Post in return was trans
ferred by Halleck to Fairchild. It has
leaked out thfft immediately upon entering
into possession of the Pout on Wednesday
last, Mr. F. discovered, as he claimed, that
matters had been greatly misrepresented to
him, nnd he at once left the city, as it is
believed, for HarrisviLle. It is also un
derstood Ilalleck left for the Mime town
about the same time.
A Morning Telegram reporter called on
Mr. M. C. Rurch, at Sweet's Hotel, last even
ing, and in an interview obtained the follow
ing particulars in regard to the matter:
"Mr. Rurch, are you the attorney for
either of the parties?"
"Our firm (Rurch t Smith) representsMr.
Fairchild in any legal controversy that may
grow out of the trouble."
"Would you state tho nature of the mis
representations as claimed by Fairchild?"
"I don't know that there would be any
thing wrong in stating that Mr. F. 6aw us on
Wednesday, just before leaving, and retain
ed us to look after his interests at tliis place,
and that he claimed that the paper had been
represented to him to have been double the
subscription list that he believed it now has,
and that the extent of the claims made for it
as to advertising patronage he believed
to be untrue, to about tlie same extent, and
that the office seemed to be in very bad con
dition and to such an extent as to surprise
him."
"What remedies does Mr. F. propose to
have applied?"
"That woutd not be proper for me to an
swer. Of course I gave him such legal advice
as I thought proper, together with some sug
gestions of a friendly nature. Whether he
will follow my advice depends somewhat
upon what attorney he employs when he
arrives at HarrisviOIe, but my general im
pression of the man, founded after an ac
quaintanceship of some ten or twelve years,
is that he will not tamely submit to any.
thing he deems unjust, and any legal con
tests that may arise will probably be brought
in the Alcona county courts,, in which county
Mr. F. has long resided. I desire to express
no opinion whatever as to the merits of the
controversy, and regret that I was called on
by the press for light on the matter."
"Do you know in whose hands the Post
will fall?"
"No, I don't. Rut I have a strong impres
sion that it won't be Faircliild's, unless mat
ters are made to appear very different than
at the time he left here."
"Have you heard from him since he left?"
"I had a telegram from him to-day, en
route, and it seem that Halleck was on the
same train. They appear to have been hav
ing a little race to see who would reach
Harrisville first, from which circumstance I
draw the conclusion that the . Harrisville
property was the more valuable, or they
both would have stayed here. Well, that i
about all I can say, and I have just been to
hear Gough, and had to liten to hi irdirect
complimentary alluions to St. John, as a
moral hero. I am tired and feel broken up,
and will bid you good night," and the gen
tleman climbed the stairs with a weary
tread.
