The vil - three miles from the Klgin branch of the Union Pacific and sixteen miles north of this city. As the mails reach the village late in the evening and leave early in the morning, it was the custom of 11. C. Reiahart, Cashier of the bank, to at tend to his correspondence; after supper. As he was leaving the bank about 9 o'clock last evening he was met at the door by two men with sacks over their heads, who pressed pistols to his head and ordered him to get back and open the frife. He stepped back into the room and they Sallowed him, pulling down the blinds and lighting the lamp. They dis played great coolness, not only taking all the money in the safe, but examining the ■a as well. The amount taken was 1,800. After leaving the bank they went <;a foot toward the timber. There is much excitement in Suminerville this v uning, and preparations are beinjr fo institute a thorough search for '.lie robbers, who, it is supposed, are resi dents of the neighborhood.

They put out the light in the room and awaited the arrival of the man whom they had reason to believe to be Bill Howard. They heard him tie the animal and open the door to his lather's bedroom, saying, '• Father, strike a light; strike a light," He then entered the room and opened the doors leading to the room where the nen were waiting. They had ex ! him at the other door. As he opened the door they cried out, "Throw u;> your hands!" Instantly Howard turned to close the door, saying, "Go to !" As he turned throe shotguns went oft. Howard immediately fell and soon ex pired. AX OROAXIZKD OAXCi OF ROBBERS.

Mor ris, editor of the Marysville Appeal, was arrested to-tiay on complaint of J. C. McKinney, charging him with criminal libel. The examination was set lor Sat urday next.

McKinney denies all knowledge of the card, and ac cordingly brings suit for libel. TIIE NATIONAL CONVENTIONS. An Effort Beinir Made to Have Both Ileld at San Francisco. San FuAXciivo, Nov. 4.—A large- and enthusiastic meeting, including nearly ail of the prominent Democrats and Repub - in the city, was held to-night to consider what inducements San Fran cisco could offer to persuade both politi cal parties to hold their national conven- THE RECORD-UNION. tions here next year. Mayor Sanderson called the meeting to order, and Irving M. Scott was elected Chairman. A long discussion followed. M. H. DeYoung called attention to the oilers of Eastern cities to pay a large part of the expenses ot the delegates, and said he thousht it would be necessary for success that San * rancisco should pay all expenses, in cluding transportation, hotel bills, etc., of the entire convention of either one or both political parties. He estimated this amount to be §100,000 for each. After De Young's speech tho meeting unanimously passed the following reso lution : Whereas, The Republican National Com mittee meets In two weeks, and this body has not time ro formulate immediately the'vari- OtM inducements that the citizens of this city will oiler for holding the next Republican National Convention it this city; therefore be Retained, That IE. H. I)e Young, California's ntativ* in the Republican National Committee, be authorised to offer such In ducements as in his judgment will procure toe holding of the next XnUomil Convention in tnls city, and we pledge ourselves to bos tain and carry out all such offers by every means in oar power. The Democratic National Convention will be considered at a future meeting, there being no necessity for haste in that case. "WILL CONTEST. The Legal Fljxht Over the Estate of W. li. Johnson Commenced. Stockton, Nov. 4.—The trial of the contest for letters ot administration of the estate of W. B. Johnson, deceased, was commenced heie to-day before Judge Ansel Smith. The estate is worth half a million dollars, and the contest is be tween an adopted daughter and a num ber of nieces and nephews of deceased. Johnson was a bachelor, 62 years of age, when he adopted Mary Eliza .Strahan.then a child 5 years old, but now Mrs. Ilowell. j She lived at Johnson's home after her adoption, which was a few months after her mother's death, and was raised and educated by Johnson. When he died last January without a will Sheriff Kay ol iuiare County, a grand nephew of the deceased, applied for letters of adminis tration, which were granted. The last Legislature amended the Code so that a married woman can now act as administratrix, and Mrs. Howell asks for s revocation of the order appointing Kay as administrator and for letters of admin istration for herself. A technical attack is mado on the adop tion papers, the principal ground being that tho child was not examined by a Judge in the adoption proceedings. An other point made is that the order ap pointing Kay as administrator is a judg ment of heirship, which stops Mrs. How ell. Against this point counsel for petitioner urge*that the order was made byJud^e Budd, father of counsel in the case, who has an interest by reason of a contingent contract, which tho Supreme Court re cently held makes the attorneys parties in interest, and the relationship of the Judge renders his orders void. The Budds contend that the contract ; was never completed, and that it was i partially signed after the oraer appoint- | ing Kay as the administrator. The case is very important, and is in teresting in all its phases. Yolo County Teachers' Institute. Woodland, Nov. 4.—The Teachers' In- i stitute met to-day with an attendance of seventy-five. H. P. Fisher, editor of the State School Journal, lectures in the Opera-house Thursday evening. The session will continue three days. WEAPONS OF WAR. REPORT OF GENERAL FLAGLER ON THE SUBJECT. Groat Need of a "Well-Equipped Sea- Coast Carriage Factory for Lmsrsee Guns. Special to the Record-Unio^. Washington, Nov. 4.—General Fiag ler, Chief of Ordnance, in his annual re port to the Secretary of War, says the labor involved and tliflieulties to be sur mounted in supplying fortifications with the new model of disappearing carriages i for largo guns is perhaps greater than that of supplying the guns themselves. j Unfortunately this work is some years behind the euns. The department is in great need of a well-equipped seacoast carriage factory for this work, and the report recommends an appropriation for further enlarging the facilities for the manufacture of carriages at the Water town Arsenal. The department has thus far completed two S-inch, one 10-inch, and one 12-inch breech-loading, steel ritied guns. The first 8-inch gun was tested with German smokeless powder with significant result, fifty pounds of the compound giving the projectile a higher velocity, with about the same pressure, as 125 pounds of black powder. The time allowed the Pneumatic Dynamite <am Company for the delivery of ten guns has been extended to Janu ary Ist next, lor the lirst delivery and July Ist for the last. Among the estimates submitted was $326,000 for the equipment of the south wing of the army gun factory, and §1,122 - 000 for oil-tempered and annealed steel for 8, 10 and 12-inch guns, including parts id I Hired for manufacture of the type of If j-inch guns. The recent improvements in the resist ing power of ship's armor would seem to still further emphasize the al ready recognized necessity for guns of' this caliber. As it would be foolish to j conclude that the improvements in the resisting power of armor had reached I anal limit, and as much time was re- ! quired for completing a type of gun of such high power as may" become abso lutely necessary for overcoming such re sistance, the sooner the work was com menced the better. (>ther estimates are: For steel 12-inch coast mortars, $725,008; for their carriages 19449.500; carriages for new 8, 10 and 12 --inchguns, $1,305,000; enlargement of the i gun-carriage plant at Watertown, Mass. | ! *lol,000: armor-piercing projectiles, 120 - (XXI; Drew piercing 12-inch shells, gloV -000; alterations of 15 and IG-inoh carri'- The report describes at length the ex haustive experiments made by the de partment with magazine small"arms in cluding the latest European models ' On ! this subject the report says: Reports from our army show that expert soldiers can fire the present service Springfield single-loader with an accuracy generally I needed in action about twenty times per minute. As !ar as the rapidity of firing j alone is concerned, these reports reduce somewhat the almost universally esti mated necessity for an immediate change • to the magazine system. It is important i to slate that up to the present time in vestigations made and the knowledge gained by this department has not dem on utiatan so much the excellence in magazine arms which have been adopted | by foreign nations as was expected, and have not shown such perfection in any une of them as could warrant its adoption for our services. It is hoped that this country can produce better arms, and until it can, or certainly until it has been ' demonstrated that it cannot, it would be to defer a change from the excellent single-loader now in service to the mag- , aziue system. No efforts should be spared to arrive at a satisfactory magazine arm. j Thf> new caliber Springfield is said to j i have been very successful with smoko- I less powder. SACRAMENTO, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 5, ISOI. RESULT OF THE ELECTIONS. McKinley's Majority in Ohio About Twenty Thousand. BOIES IS RE-ELECTED GOVERNOR OF IOWA. Flower's Majority In New York Over Forty Thousand — Tlio liCgislatnre In Ohio Strongly Republican, Whilo Both Parties Claim Conti-ol In Xow York and lowa. Ppfvinl to the Tleoord-TTxton. CoLUMBrs, Nov. 4.—Returns from the elections still come in slowly. At the State headquarters of the two parties un official information has been obtained from probably half of the eighty-eight counties. Chairman Ilahn of the Repub lican Committee claims that the plurality of McKinley will bo between 19,000 and 21,000, and that the Republican majority in the General Assembly will be thirty seven on joint ballot. Chairman Neal says McKinley's plurality will be at least 12,000, and may reach 20,000, and that the Republicans will have twenty-eight on joint ballot. The feature of the result is the complete drop-out of the People's party. Their vote in the State will not exceed 11,500, and they claimed, before the election, at least 75,000. Cincinnati, Nov. 4.—Reports would indicate the Legislature is Republican on joint ballot by a majority of thirty-eight. In Hamilton Couuty loJ; precincts show a net Democratic gain of 2.L157, indicating a plurality for McKinley of 5,:!00. Figures by counties were obtained to day from twenty-seven counties as official, the others being estimated. The counties not heard from gave last year a Demo cratic plurality of 6,808 and a Republican plurality of 835. Putting those into the footings gives McKinley a plurality of Nothing in the returns from the miss ing precincts has been heard from since 6 o'clock to alter the report already re ported. The indications are that McKin ley's plurality will be about I<>,ooo, and the Legislature as already reported. IOWA. Dcs Moines, Xov. 4.—The State Regis ter has complete returns from eighty three counties. These give a net Demo cratic gain of 806. If the gain is kept up in the remaining sixteen counties, as it probably will, Boies' plurality will be in the neighborhood of S,OO0 —a gain of '.!,000 over two years ago. If Boie's plu rality is S,ooo, the rest of the Democratic ticket is elected by small pluralities. The Republicans have some hopes for Van Houten for Lieutenant-Governor. They also claim Sabin (Republican) for Super intendent of Instruction. The Demo crats claim tho whole State ticket. The Republicans control the house and the Democrats the Senate. The Partners' Alliance candidate (Westfall) for Gov ernor received about 15,000 votes. The Prohibition vote is not reported except in a few instances, but was probal >vvery light. Fifty counties complete in lowa out ot a total of ninoty-nino in the State give Boies (Dom.) a plurality over Wheeler of 7,488. This is a Democratic gain over I&S9 of -,■">-•>. Tho remaining counties in ISB9 gave Boies a pluralityjof 1,501. Waterloo (la.), Nov. 4.—Advices re ceived by Governor Boies from sixty-five counties, with estimates from the remain ii>g thirty-four, places his majority from 9.000 to 10,000. As to the Legislature, tho Governor is advised that the Senate will be twenty-live Democrats, twonty-four Republicans. Tho House will be about evenly divided between tho two parties, with the exception of five members elected by the Union Labor and Farmers' Alliance party. NEW YORK. New York, Nov. 4.—Returns received by the Associated Press up to noon to day show the Democrats elect 14 Senators and the Republicans 14. Four districts are still in doubt, but the returns so far received indicate the Democrats will carry three of these and the Republicans one. The same returns indicate the As sembly will stand (Jl Republicans, 64 Dem ocrats, and 1 County Democrat who was indorsed by the Republicans. Of the Democratic seats four are still in doubt, and of the Republicans one. The World says: The latest returns show Flower's plurality over Fassett in the State to be 40,055. The whole Demo cratic State ticket is elected. In this city Flower's plurality is 58,847. showing a Democratic falling off of more than 10, --000 from the vote cast for Mill in ISSS. The Assembly goes Democratic by eight, although the Republicans claim they have it. At midnight the Associated Press re turns for New York State show 15 Demo crats elected to the Senate and 17 Repub licans. There is some doubt about two Republicans and one Democrat, in the A ssembly there is a tie. On these figures the Republicans have two majority on joint ballot. The Herald? a returns from the State say the Senate is a tie, and in the House the Republicans have 69, Democrats 59. Flower's plurality is given at 4(i,44G. BCASSACHUBBTTS.

Baltimore, Nov. 4.—The Democrats have elected the State ticket by about 2->,OOO majority. Both Legislative Houses are largely Democratic. VIRGINIA. Richmond, Nov. 4.—The election in this State was for the purpose of selecting an entire House of Delegates and half of the Senate. No State question was in volved. The Democrats claim every Senatorial district in the State, and they will have at least four-fifths of the House. The Alliance will have two candidates, and one "straight-out" Republican has been elected. VKB&ASKA. Omaha, Nov. 4.—The returns from the city and State are still meager, but care ful estimates give Post "(Rep..), for Su preme Judge, 6,000 majority over Edger ton, the Independent People's. The en tire Republican city and county ticket is elected. KANSAS. Topeka (Kas.), Nov. 4.—The Alliance met a crushing defeat yesterday. The j general result has been indicated by re turns from ten judicial districts. In only one was an Alliance candidate successful, electing W. llashore. In the nine dis tricts remaining seven of the successful ; candidates are Republicans aud two Democrats. In two districts the Re publicans and Democrats combined against the Alliance. A special to tne Star (Ind.) from Topeka says: The Democrats and Re publicans alike profess to believe the People's Party out of power to stay out, and the fight next year will be on the old lines. SOUTH DAKOTA. Yankton (S. 1).), Nov. 4.—At Demo cratic headquarters the election of Jolly (Rep.) to Congress by 3,500 is conceded. COLORADO.

Canton (Ohio), Nov. 4.—McKinley spent the day receiving friends and con gratulatory telegrams. Two operators were kept busy all day receiving mes sages for the Governor-olect. Among the senders were General R. A. Alger of Michigan, and J. gloat Fassett. the de feated candidate for Governor of New York. Governor Campbell sent the following to his successful opponent: "I heartily congratulate you upon your election. 1 have no doubt you will serve the people of Ohio with fidelity and honesty." Columbus (O.), Nov. 4. — Chairman liaun of the Republican State Committee received a large number of congratulatory telegrams. Among the senders were President Harrison, Joseph Mauley of Maine. Hahn sent the following ironical telegram to Roger Q. Mills and Congress man Crisp, who assisted the Democrats in the campaign: "Allow me to congratu late you on the able assistance you ren dered us in the Ohio campaign. McKin ley's plurality is 19,000 to 21,000. The General Assembly is Republican by thirty-iivo to thirty-seven on joint ballot. Can you be with us next year ?" Governor Campbell received telegrams of sympathy in his defeat from ex-Presi dent Cleveland and Governor lioies of lowa. The Randall Club sent condo lences, and the hope that its members would be present at his inauguration to the highest office in the nation. PRESIDENT HARIUSOX Very Much Plcanod at tho Result In Ohio. Washington, Nov. 4.—President Har rison received the following telegram from Chairman Hahn of the Republican State Central Committee: "The Republi cans of Ohio won a magnificent victory. The entire Republican ticket was elected. The General Assembly is Republican on i joint ballot by 35 to 37, insuring the elec tion of a resident of Ohio aud a Repub lican to tho United States Senate." The President replied as follows: "Thanks for ihe good news and congrat ulations for yourself and party upon tho victory won by the courageous advocacy of the right principles.'' The President this afternoon sent tho following to McKinley: "I congratulate you most heartily upon your splendid victory, won by a manly appeal to the intelligence and patriot! i of a people always responsive to such appeals." NEWS AT WASHINGTON. Republicans and Democrats Alike- Re joice. Washington, Nov. 4.—The Repub licans generally rejoice over tho result in ,Ohio, claiming it a vindication of the new tariiV law, and are disposed to regard the reversals in other States as the result of local differences within the party. The Democrats are rejoicing over the result in New York, Massachusetts aud lowa, and assert that it shows a steady and reliable growth of the power of tho party in the East The Democrats are particularly jubilant over the results, be lieving that it will preserve the domina tion of Eastern inliuence in the party: that free coinage will cut no figure in the National campaign; that the Farmers' Alliance will count for but little in Na tional affairs, and that the tariff will be the National issue, so accepted by both parties, and it is believed that this elec tion has settled the line of battle for the National campaign. It is generally believed also that the election will have a very decided influ ence onihe selection of Presidential can didates.* The prevailing opinion here is that the Democratic cry from this time out will be "Cleveland, and Tariff Re form." It is believed that the defeat of the 1 democrats in Ohio, with free coinage in their platform, and the great suecess'of Flower in New York after the active part Cleveland and his friends took in the campaign, will strengthen the ex-Presi dent not only in New York, but among the Democrats in the South, who will feel the necessity of yielding on the silver question and accepting him as the in evitable. As to the Republican situation, the election of McKinley is expected to intro duce another candidate, aud another element of doubt as to the Presidential nomination. McKinley's friends and admirers aro undoubtedly of the opinion that he will be a very formidable candi date before the next Republican National Convention. They foresee that his tarilf policy will be the issue, and express the opinion that the natural thing would be for him to be the candidate. Representative Mills said to-day that the defeat of Mr. Campbell was a sur prise to him, as he had felt great confi dence in his election. The general re sult of the election, however, he said, was highly gratifying to the Democrats, notwithstanding the disappointment in Ohio. The taritt, he said, would bo the issue in tho Presidential election, and if the Democrats nominated an acceptable candidate they would be almost sure of success. He said he thought the Demo cratic strength in -Sew York had been pretty well tested, and he Relieved that the party had great promises opened to them in New England and in lowa, Wis consin and Illinois. With the right sort of a nominee and with tariff reform as 11 • i issue, ho did not think the Democrats had anything to fear in 1882, Colonel W. R. Morrison said that the result showed thai the Democratic* party was growing; that it was making,sub stantial progress, which was very prom ising for the future. BAY DISTRICT RACES.

Brazil Again Thrown Into a State *of Unrest MARTIAL LAW PROCLAIMED AT RIO JANEIRO. Dillon's Followers TJecelve Rough. Treatment at the Hands of Par nellltos nt Watorford, Iroland. Many of tho Former Having to bo Taken to tho Hospital—Manifesto Issued Ordering: the Expnlslon of All the Native Christians From Hn nan, China. Special to the RkcortvUxtojt. London, Nov. 4.—A dispatch received here from Rio Janeiro, Brazil, brings news of what seems to be another revolu tion. Congress, the dispatch says, is dissolved, and martial-law is proclaimed at Rio Janeiro and throughout tho prov inces. A cablegram announces that a Dictatorship has been established in Brazil. Fuller dispatches regarding the revolu tion announced to havo broken out in Brazil are anxiously awaited here by financiers and merchants who have large interests at stake in that country. The hope is expressed that the alarming re ports received may not turn out as seri ous as at present outlined. Lisbon, Nov. 4.—A cipher dispatch j from Rio Janeiro attributes the crisis i there to the action of the Brazilian Con gress in passing a bill depriving tho President of the right of veto. All tele grams are subject to strict censorship. ANOTHER CALL, ON OUR NAVY. Washington, Nov. 4.—The reported revolutionary movement in Brazil, ac companied by a declaration of martial law and the establishment of a Dictator ship, is likely to cause another demand upon tho already strained resources of our navy, for it is regarded as necessary for the protection of American interests that a naval force be on hand there in case of a formidable outbreak. The only vessels attached to the South Atlantic station in the vicinity of Rio de Janeiro are tho Uysex and Talapoosa. The first is an old wooden cruiser, and the second is worn out and offered for sale. The Boston is somewhere on the Brazilian coast, en route to the Pacific, but it is not probable that she will bo detained. The Yorktown, however, was at Bahia, Bra zil, Saturday, and will probably be or dered by cable to remain there or return to Santos, notwithstanding the fact that she also was on her way to the Pacific station. Meanwhile the work of repair on the Newark, at Boston, is being pressed, and in case of emergency Ad miral Uherardi's iiagship, the Philadel phia, now on tho way to the West Indies from New York, could be ordered by ca ble to proceed to Rio Janeiro. THE IRISH FACTIONS. Dillon's Followers Roughly Handled by tho Parnollltes. Dublin, Nov. 4. — Dispatches from Waterford, where the convention of tho National Federation is being hold, say great excitement pi-evails. The streets aro crowded with uproarious mobs ready for any kind of disturbance. Timothy Healy, who was horsewhipped yesterday by MoDermott, a nephew of Parnell, was j one of tho speakers. Ho said ho would i not be deterred by violence from pur ! suing the course he mapped out for him self, and repeated the language in refer erence to the widow of the Irish leader which he used at Longford Sunday, and which led to his chastisement at tho hands of McDermott. Dillon, on arriving at Waterford, was received with mingled cheers and hisses. Three hundred police guarded the feder ation delegates on the way to the conven tion. The police repelled repeated charges by the mob. The Parneliite sympathizers tried to rush through the entrance of the City Hall, but were beaten back. Dillon at the convention confirmed O'Brien's Boulogne revelations, and added that the men now calling him traitor telegraphed him whilo in New- York, offering him the leadership in suc cession to Paraell. Harrington, Red mond, and other prominent Parnellites joined in the request, which was made after he declared against the leadership of ParnelL All promised if he (Dillon) took the Chairmanship they would be his loyal followers. He had done nothing since that. Dillon left the convention hall on his way to the railway station, guarded by police and a hundred priests. A mob followed and kept up a continuous at tack until Dillon obtained shelter in the station. A number of skulls were cracked. Thirty delegates, while cross ing the toll bridge, were thrown to the ground and trampled upon. Many were badly hurt and bleeding profusely when rescued by the police. Several thousand Parnellites held the approaches ,o the convention hall, and everywhere struck down their opponents. The whole quay, a mile in length, was the scene of savage fighting. Many persons were taken to the hospital. It is estimated that 150 persons were seriously and many others badly injured during the fighting. SITUATION IN CHILE. Xo Diminution of Animosity Against Americans. London, Nov. 4.—The latest advices from Valparaiso state that there is no di minution of popular animosity against Americans, and no real effort is being made to brine: any Chileans to justice for the killing of American sailors. Wlnie the American negotiations are ponding tho Junta has ordered the Chilean war vessels to be ready for , service, and the forts defending Yalpa :■■ bso harbor are being strengthened. These steps are taken very quietly, as with a view to avoid attracting attention. The Baltimore maintains great vigi lance. Captain Nchley is evidently on tiie lookout for a treacherous attack. The opinion is expressed that should the >ituati<m not culminate before the ]*th inst., the new President, probably Jorge Montt, may bring matters to a set tlement. Monlt is believed to be the best disposed to Americans of any of tho revolutionary leaders. The correspondent of the London Times at \ alparaiso is said to be a writer who has been noted in the past for his hostility to the United States. The Tinted articles continue the subject of unfavora ble comment in London, as calculated to stir up trouble between the United States and England. ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE GEN. CANTO. Valparaiso (Chile), Nov. 4.—The dis covery of a plot to assassinate <ieneral (. auto created great excitement here to day. Canto led the forces of the Junta i which landed at Quinteros Kay, ana ! which, after a series of rights, captured i Valparaiso and led to the downfall of Balmaceda. He has, as a consequence, been the object of cordial hatred of such of the partisans of the late President as are still in | the country. It was among these that the plot was discovered. Just how the clue came into the hands of tho authori ties, and the full details, have not been made public, but enough is known to in dicate that Canto had a narrow escape from death. POLITICAL CRISIS OVER. The Cabinet Differences Iv Canada Temporarily Settlor!. Ottawa (Ont.), Nov. 4.—Tho Cabinet differences have been arranged, and tho political crisis is over temporarily. At a conference this morning, Secretary of State Chapleau agreed to continue in hig present position for a time, and to suc ceed Hon. Edgar Pewdney as Minister of the Interior when the latter retired to be come Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia. J. A. Ouiuiet, ex-Speaker of th<- House of Commons, will succeed Chapleau as Secretary of State. A. K.

Kills Ilis Wife and Babe With a Hatchet and Then lianas Himself. Special to the Kecorb-Union. Sax Francisco, Nov. 4.—One of the most shocking murders on record in California occurred opposite the Golden City House, on the San Bruno road, last night or early this morning. Siegfried Gosch, a German, aged 35, brutally murdered his wife, Marie, and his 21-month-old son Willie with a hatchet, then ended his life by putting a rope around his neck and hanging him self to a tree in the chicken-yard back of the little kitchen of his house. The first person to discover the mur der and the bodies -was old Mrs. Stern it/.ky, the murdered woman's mother. She went to the Gosch home, a little three-room cottage adjoining her own house, at 6:30 this morning, as had been her custom for some weeks to take care of the babe while the father worked in a tannery, and while Mrs. Gosch Avas at tending her household duties. Going through tho little backyard she thought she saw her son-in-law standing as if looking into the sky. She at once said, "(.rood morning, Sieg, aro you look ing at the stars?" Getting no reply she went closer, and uttered a shriek which brought her hus band and daughters to her side, lor she had discovered that her son-in-law was dead. His coat was oft"and a sharp knife was by his side with which he had cut the clothes line in twain. A strong sec tion of the line was tied firmly around his ueck and to the limb of a sturdy tree not twenty feet from the kitchen door, around which his murdered boy had been playing last night while the mother sang German songs and cooked rapper. Fearing that Gosch had done violence to his family, the frightened Sternitzkies rushed into the little cottage, to the small bedroom in the front part of the house. The scene at the moment of their ontry was the most horrible that the imagina-. tion can depict. Mrs. Gosch was dead, and her body was lying across an old fashioned German cradle, whence mine the muinYd screams of her youngest child, a babe two months old. In another crib, or German cradle little Willie was breathing his last breath. In his head the sharp hatchet which mur dered him and his mother was deeply imbedded, while tho bed was covered with blood and the furniture and bed clothing were ho arrangeu as to indicate that the woman was probably not killed by tho first blow, or might" even have wakened before she was struck, and for a moment had forseen her fate and strug gled in desperation to avert it. Thero can be little doubt that when the niother foresaw her husband's murderous intentions and knew that she could not escape, she threw herself over the cradle of her infant to save its life. Tho blow from the hatchet which finally killed her wa:; probably dealt while she was ing over her infant and pleading for mercy. The infuriated madman, after being satisfied of his wife's death, doubtless dispatched his eldest son with the one blow. Leaving the hatchet embedded in the unfortunate boy's head, lie forgot the existence of the babe, which was hi. Men from view beneath its dying or dead mother and rushed to the yard, where with maniacal deliberation and ferocity, he carefully removed his coat and ended his own life by adjusting the clothes-line around his neck, climbing the tree and jumping therefrom. When found the feet almost touched the ground. «.<;~chhad been here for eight years, having come from Germany. He had j been married a little over two years, and I been employed in tho tannery of his i brothers-in-law, Stemitzky Bros., about the same length of time. Of late Gosch had had some differences with his wife, which resulted in occa sional quarrels. Gosch wanted to go to Germany, while his'wife and her family tried to dissuade him from thinking of emigrating, she preferring to remain where all her relatives lived. WHOLE 3STO. 15,018. FEARFUL MINE ACCIDENT. Nineteen Men Hurled to the Bot tom of a Shaft. ALL BUT TWO OP THEM CRUSHED TO DEATH. The New York Presbytery Adopts a resolution Dismissing the Charges, of Heresy Aealnst Professor Charles A- Krisrss—The Matter "Will Now bo Taken to tho Now York Synod ior Final Action. Special to tho Rkcokd-Uxioit. Bttte (Mont.), Nov. 4.—At midnight last night, when one body of shaft men at tho Anaconda mine was relieving an other, seventeen men were killed by the falling of the cage, and two were fatally injured. The cage was full of miners returning from work. Tho men stepped out ijito tho open air and their places were at onco taken by ninoteon men, who were to take up the work tho relieved men had just abandoned, and tho cage started toward the depths below. The rope had been unwound but a couple of times from the slowly revolv ing windlass, when there was a sudden .snap and a cry of horror from the shaft. The rope had broken, and the cage with its nineteen inmates were precipitated to the bottom of the mine. It was some little time before assistance could bo sent to them. A number of miners who were through work and waiting to be relieved were at the bottom of the shaft waiting for the ••age to take them out, when it dashed amidst them, narrowly missing them. Little could be done. Of the nineteen men who made the fearful ride seventeen were dead. Their forms were crashed out of all semblance of human beings, while two, yet breathing, have no hopes of recovery. THE BBIGGS CASE. Tho Now York Presbytery Dismisses tho Chaise of Heresy. X<:w York, Nov. 4.—The Xew York Presbytery assembled this mornicg in tho Scotch Presbyteiian Church, for the purpose of beginning the trial of Profes sor Charles A. Briggs on the charge of heresy, based upon language used by him in his inaugural address in the Union Theological Seminary. Dr. JohnC. I'.liss presided as moderator. There was a full attendance, one of tho chief charges against Dr. Briggs is that he disputes the inerrancy of the Bible. The Professor read a paper objecting to thu form of charges preferred, stating that the report of the committee which formulated the indictment against him charges offenses which are not now i>n> posed for trial. The committee charges him with uttering doctrinal teachings re specting miracles, the original condition of man, etc., without attempting to prove the charges. This, Dr. i>iiggs said, did him great injustice, and was apt to preju dice the decision of the members, lie said if he caused widespread anxiety in the church he was sorry, bat in his con science ho felt no guilt in regard to dis turbing the peace and harmony of the church. He further added tho charges were general and obscure, and irregular in form throughout. There was nothing in the specifications that can be tested by defendant. He admitted the excerpts from his address made on tho occasion of his inauguration as Professor of Biblical Theology in the Union Theological Sem inary. The facts relied upon to sustain the charges are missing in tho indict ment. He said also the indictment con tained insinuations wholly unwarranted. He denied that he ever taught doctrines conflicting with tho Holy .Scriptures as the only infallible rule of faith and prac tice. This afternoon the resolutions of Dr. Vandyke were taken up. Dr. Vandyke made a dignified, earnest plea in support of the proposition to dismiss the case against Dr. Briggs. Alter an extended discussion the resolution to dismiss was read and a vote taken, resulting in 94 to '■.'.'J against. This action, however, docs not end the controversy, as it will un ■ doubtudly be taken before tho New York Synod. iLarsre Land Suit Instituted. Muskogek (I.
