of a hundred spectators two men -were
literally roasted alive with water forty feet
deep all about them. The city has a pro
cess of disposing of its garbage swill by
treating it with naphtha, a large tank of|
which was lying on the banks of the
Womasquatoeket River. The tank be
gan to leak and the river became cov
ered with a thick coating of Inflammable
.Tvist below the tank there was a raft on
•which was an engine and pile-driver j
worked by three men. There names j
•wore. Patrick Nagle and Patrick Fen
nessy of Providence, and Phinear Gam
mell of Paw-tucket.
The outgoing tide carried the naphtha
to the pile-driver, which was completely
surrounded, and the gases arising from |
it were ignited by the fire under tho
boiler, and Instantly the pile-driver was
ablaze, and a fearful flame and a heavy
black eljpud of smoke hid the rait and
pile-driver from sight, but while the
smoke was rolling up there wore heard
the most agonizing screams from the men
on the raft.
An alarm.was given and when the fire
was subdued the three men were found;
blackened on the raft, rolling in their i
frenzy and agony. They had been pinned
in by a solid sheet of lire and hail been
roasted. Every bit of the skin on Nagle's j
face hands, arms and legs came off like ,
an old glove, as well as the thumb and I
finger nails. Garamell was not so badly
burned, but his injuries are very serious. !

in Favor of Closing on Sundays.
Chicago, Sept. 6.—The World's Fair
Board of Lady Managers yesterday, by a
voto of 56 to 36, adopted a resolution de
claring in favor of closing the fair on j
Sundays. Arguments in favor of the
resolution were made by Bishop Fowler
and Miss Frances E. Willard. Stirring
addresses on the opposite side were made
1-0 Mr<. Bagley of Michigan, Mrs. Isa
bella Beecher-Hooker and Mrs. Traut
man of New York, who contended that

on Sunday; make it a great Sunday-
Rchool; invite the world, regardless of re- ;
ligion, to come and learn of the great
works of man that are made possible by
When tho roll was called on the resolu
tion several members declined to an- I
swer. Some one suggesting they should
be required to vote on tho question,
about twenty-five ladies left the room.
Mad they remained ami voted it was as-
Herted that the resolution would have
been defeated by a small majority.

Weather Crop Bulletin.
Washington, Sept. 6.—The weekly
crop bulletin says: On th-j Pacific Coast
the rainfall is generally in excess. In
Central California the rainfall has been
from one to two inches less than usual.
Near Portland and < tlympia the deficiency
amounts to about five inches.
Oregon—Threshing is nearly completed.
Wheat and oats will yield heavily. Hop
picking is progressing. Hop lice and
mold injured the crop considerably.
California—Weather favorable. Po
tatoes are plentiful and so cheap that
.some of the crop wjll be lon in the
ground. There are more bops than last
season, on account of the increased acre
age. Fruit is being shipped to the can
neries in carload lots.
Child Seized by a Bald Eagle.
Satlt Stk. Map.ii; (Mich.), Sept <>.—
While the small girl baby of John Cow
adge, a Chippewa Indian guide, living on
t!i" shore of Echo Lake, was playing near
the door of his hut yesterday, an enor
mous bald eagle swooped down and seized
the child. The Indian mother rushed out,
and the bin), after rising several feet,
dropped the babe, which was evidently
too heavy for it. The fall caused its
death. The bird made anotherplunge for
its victim, but was fought oil by the
mother until the arrival ol her husband,
who shot it.
American Goods Carry the Day.
Washington, Sent. <>.—Tho Consul-
Grenenl of Germany at San Jose, Costa

Government, in which he says: "There
is no doubt but that the extraordinary
endeavors which the American industrial j
world, backed by the Government, is
| makitig to increase trade with the Span
ish-American countries is meeting with
success. The difference in price, if any,
is more than compensated for by the at
tractive and handy get-up of the* Ameri

Piot Among San Quentin Prisoners to
Effect an Escape.
Their Conversation Overheard, and
Seven of Thorn Put In Soli
tary Confinement.
Ppnolal to the RKOORD-UlflOW.
San Francisco, Sept 6.---A daring plot
j to break from the State Prison at San
j Quentin has been frustrated by Warden
Bale. For some time past the Warden i
has had his supicions aroused by sen
tences let drop by several of the most j
hardened criminals confined in the j
prison. A close watch wa.s kept on their '
movements, and a few days sin.-c the
Warden became convinced that a break
; was soon to be made, and that they in
tended to slop at nothing short of mur
der to accomplish the desired end. Be
consequently ordered seven of the most
desperate among the convicts at the
Prison put in solitary confinement.
These are not all that are BUSpected of
having a hand in the conspiracy, and
others are being watched. No one out- I
ido of the plotters themselves knows
how many were involved in the scheme
that had murder among its elements.
Nearly all of the seven have partici
pated in jail-breaks before, some of them
. ral tint's. Among them are the
three v. ho esca] ed last year and defended
: themselves in a fortress among the hi
: until (iener.il McComb, then Warden,
j made terms with them.
Charles Dorsey, a|ias Thorn, alias many
other names, the murderex 1 of Banker
Cummings, who escaped in LBB7and w.i*
recaptured at Chicago, and brought back
: last < etoher. is another of those eon
: cerned in the plot.
1 hey are long termers and several are
, serving life send noes. ■
Theseven actually known to be in the
plot are: "Mickey" Delaney,safe borg
! iar; Charles Dorsey, murderer; William
Banlon, stage robber; Harry Manning,
Stage robber; Abraham Turcott, imir
j derer; George Ross, burglar; James Sulli
| van. murderer.
The full details of tho plot aro as yet
ad known even to the warden, who has
d aware <>f the existence of some -
of a plot tor neveral weeks.
A search of the prisoners' clothes and
- revealed nothing suspicious except
' a skeleton key, which was found in R
; pocket. Where he got it no one can t IL
: It looks like a home-made key, but it
I will unlock almost any door.
Delaney, th i Bafe burglar, Is serving his
I fourth term in state Prison. His last
commitment was from Placerville. He
Is serving a sentence of twenty years for
breaking open a safe there. Delaney la
credited with having originated the con
spiracy, lie is a reckless fellow, and bas
, always ! n considered one of the worst
men in the prison.
- w i.iri;MiN, Sept 6.—The seven con
vict ringleaders or the frustrated con
spiracy to escape are atm [ n solitary
; cells. They will not be released until "a I
; coufession is obtained. The officials of
the prison flo not know the details of the
plot, but it is certain that there was a
; conspiracy to escape, and that the assas
sination of the omoers of the prison was
I contemplated. The first mformation
came from a convict whose time is nearly
up. Then a detective was dressed in
; stripes and sent Into tbe prison yard. Be
overhead conversations that confirmed
the first information. One day he heard
them say, " "Tis only ■ short lime now."'
The prison officials oared wait no longer,
and arrested the leaders. It is believed
that arms and triends were to be await
ing them outside the prison if they sue-
Oeeded in making their escape.

special to the Record-Union.
Sam Francisco, Sept. G.—Associated
Press correspondence from Somoa, per
steamer Mariposa, says: The country is
in a state of great unrest. Mataafa is still
at Malic, with three or four hundred
men, and has sent out messengers again
lo raise a party in his behalf. He has
been told that the United States would
not .send any more ships to Samoa.
When the Iroquois arrived ho was per
suaded that she came in his interest.
It is generally understood that the
Government is only waiting tho arrival
of an English ship to make a joint dem
onstration and to punish the natives who
refuse to obey Malietoa. Unless some
action is taken without delay there will
be trouble.
The groat cause of complaint among
the natives is the way the salary list is
climbing up. Two Swedish gentlemen
•ame out with the Chief Justice to act as
Clerk of the court and Marshal, tho only
positions in his gift. As it turned out
there was nothing in these places, two
new places were created for them—Chief
of Police and Secretary to the Chief
.Justice. The people, however, have con
fidence in the Chief Justice's impartiality.
The only objection is that he is very slow.
There is much dissatisfaction because
of the acts of the President, Baron Senft
Yon Pilsack. He is a German and best
for the Germans. The currency question
is the burning question of the* hour. A
German firm imported a number of sil
ver marks from Germany some time ago,
and wished to pass them at gold value in
payment of taxes, etc. Most of
these coins are very old marks of
Wurtemburg and other small princi
palities. The residents object to them, as
they cannot pass them except at a dis
count in America and the Colonies. The
President, however, insists that they be
received. The King and Government j
decided that they would not take them, I
but the President again ordered them to
do so or Germany would be angry. They
again refused, but still Pilsack declines
to accept their decision, and the question
is still open.

ordered him to do so. lie then sent a
dispatch to the Emperor explaining the
situation and announcing that unless he
was otherwise ordered the Sophie would
proceed at once to Mollenda, Peru, the
nearest neutral port, where the people
wanted by the Junta would be landed.
Later in the day a reply was received
from Berlin approving the Admiral's ac
tion, and the Sophie will sail to-morrow.
The stories of a riot at Coquimbo are
without foundation. Word was received
from thereto-day that the Congressional
officials have taken possession of that
city ami Serena without any disturbance,
and thai order had been maintained
throughout. The Balmacedist officials at
Coquimbo have been granted protection
on board Englisb war vessels. The Gov
ernment troops at those places have been
disbanded and allowed to <, r" home. The
armed transport Aconcagua has been or
dered south to meet the ship bringing
arms and field guns ordered by the Junta
in Europe.
The Junta is busily engaged in reorgan
izing the public service. All Judges and
court officials who were dismissed by
Balmaceda have been reappointed. Other
changes will be rapidly made, until the
entire civil Bervioe is in sympathy with
the new < tovernment.
When the papers in the desk of Balma
ceda's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Senor
Godoy, were examined to-day, a cable
dispatch was found dated Berlin, August
i^th, informing him that the German
Government had decided t.> recognize the
belligerent rights of the Congressional
tsts. This news Minister Godoy had

It is asserted on high authority that the
story that arms were shipped to Iquique
>>ii the steamer Montserat is untrue. It is
also asserted that there was not a single
.Lee rifle in the hands of tbe Congros
sionalist soldiers. The rilles which it
was alleged had been transferred from
the Itata to the Ksmeralda were of this
make, and the fact that none of them
were held by General Canto's army dis
proves that story also.
A conference has been held between
the Junta ami leading merchants and
bankers relative tothje recognition by the
new Government of the note issues or
dered by Balmaeeda during the past six
months. Just what points were consid
ered and the conclusions reached are not
yet known. It is generally believed,
however, that action satisfactory to all
concerned will be decided upon.
Washington, Sept. ts.—Whether or
not the Congressional Junta has been
recognized aw tho de facto Government of
Chile cannot be officially learned at the
Department of Slate, as the acting Secre
tary refuses to make any statement what
ever on the subject, rsevertheless, there
is good reason to believe that acting upon
Minister's Kgan's information that the
authority of the Junta, is supreme in
Chile, he has, as already predicted, been
directed to open relations with them. If
there has boen any question as to the
proper treatment of refugees aboard the
United States warships it had been de
cided by Admiral Brown. He cabled to
day that the Baltimore left yesterday for
Peru, taking away twenty refugees whoae
lives were not safe in Chile.
Senor Don Prudencia Lazeauo, Chleian
Minister to the United States, has given
up the house he has occupied here, and,
accompanied by his wife, left the city
yesterday afternoon for New York. It
is believed that he is on his way to Eu
New York. Sept. (s.—The Herald has
this cablegram from Santiago de Chile
via Galveston: The provisional Govern
ment of the Republic of Chile will be
formally recognized by the Government
of the United States to-morrow. Min
ister Patrick Egau to-day received a cablo
dispatch from the Staio Department at
Washington instructing him to treat with
the Junta Gobernio as the Government do
facto of tho country. Information to this
effect was unofficially conveyed to Senor
Jorge Montt, President of the Junta, soon
after the receipt of tho cable dispatch, but
official action will not be taken until to
Minister Egan will be cordially re
ceived by the Junta for the news he
brings, if fur nothing else. Members ot
the Provisional Government were much
pleased at the receipt of this information,
though they were not greatly surprised.
The United States understood the situa
tion here that order had been restored
throughout the country, and the author
ity of the Junta universally recognized,
Mr. Eagan would receive the instructions
which came to-day.
It is the opinion -here that Senor Pedro
Montt, who is now in Washington as
representative of the Junta, will be
regularly accredited Minister from Chile
to the United States as soon as the mat
ter is reached. This, it is thought, will
not be many days.

New York, Sept. t>.—George 13. Parks,
a mulatto belonging In Atlanta, Ga.,
with liia family, consisting of a wife and
seven children, arrived yesterday. He is
an intelligent man, i carpenter by trade,
and tells an interesting story of tho con
dition of aflairs in Liberia, Africa. On
the 22d of last May, lured by promises of
the Society for the Promotion of Coloni
zation in Liberia, he sailed to that place.
On landing in Moravia, ho found the
country in a most debauched condition.
The American negroes who already emi
grated there had assumed a most tyran
nical rule over the natives. No part of
t!:>' ground was under cultivation.
Parks has been a slave in the South,
but he says the condition of slavery in
Liberia is worse than in Georgia before

deal in human flesh, was ostracised by
the negroes from America. After spend

Merced, Sept. o.—The full detective
force which is aftor the Ceres train rob
bers met hero yesterday afternoon by ap
pointment in the El Capitan parlors.
Those leading the chase are Sheriff Cun
ningham, Deputies Stockiard and Sell,
Detectives Hume, Lawson, Packer aud
Smith, and although forty-eight hours
have passed since the attempt at robbery,
these bravo men have not taken any rest,
going night and day, not for tho reward
offered for the arrest of the villains, but
to bring them to justice, if possible, and
rid the country of them.
Detective Lawson was interviewed by
an Associated Press reporter last evening,
and Bald: "We have nothing we can make
public just now, but can say that at our
meeting to-day we all agreed that Bob
and Emmet Dalton, who are now at large,
and the men who figured in the Alila
train robbery, had something to do with
this." !
The Daltous are well acquainted with
the country and people here, and if they
are connected with it, it will be hard to
convict thorn if arrested. Lawson brought
a tramp to town this afternoon who was
on the wrecked baggage-car. This man,
who gave the name of Colelough, gave
tho detective a good description of the
short man who tigured in the robbery,
and he thinks he could identify him if he
saw him. The officers are confident they
Will cage their game within a week.
Gophen, Sept. 6.—Sheriff Kay passed
through here to-night for Visalia with
two men supposed to be the Ceres train
■Merced, Sept. G.—News has just been
received here by Detective Lawson,
which is authentic, to the effect that Bell
Daiton and Wiley Dean were arrested
near Traver this afternoon and lodged in
tho Visalia jail. Great excitement was
created here by the news, as Dalton was
out on bonds for another alleged robbery,
and all his bondsmen were residents of
Merced, where his attorney, J. W. Brock -
inridge, also resides.
Visalia, Sept. o.—Win. Dalton and
Wiley Dean were captured late this after
noon about three miles south of Traver.
Two men were seen to ride up to the
houso of Maggie Kucker. Immediately
Sheriff Kay and Deputy Witty went to
the house. Wm. Dalton came to the
door and was ordered to throw up his
hands. He obeyed, but declared thst lie
was alone. Kay refused to believe this,
and Deputy Witty went through the
house and into the rear, where ho found
Dean bidding in tho cellar with a rifle.
He ordered him to surrender, and Dean
did so. Two horses and a number of
rilles were captured. The horses bore
signs of hard riding.
William Dalton is a brother of Grattan
Dalton, now in jail awaiting sentence for
holding up tho train at Alila last Feb
ruary. William was charged with being
an accomplice, but was out on bail, his
caso being sot for October 6th. William
called on liis brother at the jail last Tues
day. He was in a very excited state, and
it was feared that an attempt would be
made to rescue Grattan, and three extra
guards wero employed to guard the jail.
William, however, left at midnight of
tho same day for Modesto, seven miles
north of Ceres, the scene of the late rob
Dean arrived at Maggie Rucker's
house last night, and Dal ton claims that
he never saw him till to-day.
Sheriff Kay is positive that the men
are the robbers, but refused to say how he
obtained the information leading to the
arrests. He will start again to-morrow,
and is confident he will capture the third
robber very soon. The men answer the
description of the Ceres robbers. Dalton
is a short and Dean a tall man. It is
thought that the robbery was for the pur
pose of getting money to bail Grattan
Dalton out. )

( iintiiciims skin Disease.
Norkistown la., Sept. (>. -People
here are alarmed at the rapid spread of a
contagious skin disease called "Italian

of a minute parasite traced to imported
German laborers recently employed in
this neighborhood, and aflects all classes
alike, in neighborhoods where aliens
have worked. Notes and coin are said to
be the most frequent medium for trans

Tolls What You Should J)o.
If you are unfortunate enough to ho
bitten by a dog, wast.' do time in sending
for a physician. Hut the wound requires
instant attention, writes Dr. l'aul (iibier
in the Lodiet? Home Journal. Pint,
wash it immediately with clean, tepid
water. If this is not readily obtainable,
(.lean water of any temperature will
answer. This will do until a physician
arrives. It you should be so situated
that :i physician cannot attend upon you,
then act:
After flushing out tho wound with
clean water, apply, by means of ■ glass
dropper, a powerful antiseptic. T regard
{>erozide of hydrogen (medicinal) as tho
jest compound.
Don't cauterize. In my opinion it is a
needlessly painful operation, and is very
seldom accomplished soon enough to
prevent the hydrophobic infection from
taking place.
Having applied the antiseptic (perox
ide of hydrogen) to the sore, take care not
to remove tho white foam that w.'ll be
generated. Let it remain until it disap
| pears, which will oeour in a fow min
utes. This being done, a compress of ab
sorbent cotton, soaked in the peroxide pf
hydrogen, should be laid over the .sore,
with an over-covering of oiled silk.
Twice every day the wound should bo
dressed in the samo manner, with the ex
ception that the peroxide of hydrogen,
instead of being used lull strength,
should be diluted, half and half, with
clean water—tepid or liltered water being
The subsequent treatment depends
upon tho condition of the dog that in
flicted the wound. Don't kill the ani
mal unless it shows evident symptoms of
hydrophobia, llavo it placed securely
in a safe place. If, at the expiration of
oue week, or not more than two weeks, it
has not shown any abnormal symptoms,
the patient need not fear.
If, on the contrary, tho animal sickons
and dies, tho patient should bo treated by
the Pasteur method as quickly as pos
sible. The sooner the better. At tho
same time the contents of the dog's stom
ach and a portion of its spinal marrow,
in glycerine, should bo sent to tho Pas
teur Institute, 17N West Tenth street,
New York City, where experiments may
decide whether the animal died with hy
drophobia or not.
Should the animal have boon shot or
otherwise killed, it is advisable that tho
patient should submit at once to the Pas
teur treatment, for two reasons: first, be
cause it is harmless; second, because its
etticacy has been proved beyond a doubt,
over fifteen thousand persons having
beon inoculated since Pasteur's discov
In case the animal remains in good
health, it is unnecessary that tho patient
submit to inoculation.
