DESIIrSDiGGER. Breckinridge's Son Stabs Jis. D. Livingston at Lixington. Livingston Wantel to Shake Hands Over the Election. DESHA GI1EW FURIOUS. Called Him a Liar and Made a Vicious Stab at HiiL. Leiioton-, Ivy., Sept. 22. Desna Breckinridge had a sensational alter cation with James Duane Livingston, formerly of New York city, in the Phjenix hotel at 5:30 last evening-. Living-ston was standing- in the news and cigar stand reading an afternoon paper when Desha Breekinridg-e cam in and b'sug ht a package of cigarette. Livingston spoke to Desha and ex tended his hand, saying, "It is all over now, we ought to be friends. Shake hands." Breckinridge, with f.n angry look on his face, replied, "No, you one horse scoundrel, I will not take your hand. You profess to be a man's friend and then stab bin in the back." Livingston replied to this by saying that he had done nothing of the kind, when Breckinridge calui him a liar. Then Livingston struck at Desha and knocked hi glasses off, following' this up with s. blow on the ' neck. Desha reached for his h.p pocket and instantly flashed in the air a long-, bright blade of a big- dirk. Doth men were pale ai death. Liv ingston, in a moment of desperation, grabbed at the plitterin j blade which Breckinridge had aimed at his heart. The knife went between the second and third fingers of Livingston's right hand, cutting1 the third finger to the bone. The cold steel sent a shudder through Livingston's frame, and he grasped his right hand with his left in order to stop the terrible now of blood that was e yeing1 the tiling- of the lobby. Desha Breckin-ri-1 re seemed to desire bo more blood and gave Livingston, two strong kicks. The hotel clerks and several bystanders rushed in and seized Brcckinridg-e, and at the same instant Matt Lane, a strong- Breckinridge man, run up and sid lie would take a hand in helping- Desha. Two witnesses say that Lane also flourished a big knifo, but Lane denies this. Livingston was hurried into the wash room where his wounds were bathed, and he wn then taken to the or!iee of a physici m. where his hand was dressed. A frbind then took LLvi ngston borne in a buggy, and Desha Breckinridge went to his rooms across the street.. Just before the trouble occurred with Livingston, De-h:i and Lone, who were walking- up Vain street, in front of tho Breckinridge headquar ters, met Judire George B. Kankead, who made several speeches during- the campaign, denouncing- Colonel Breck inridge in the most seithing terms. Desha Breckinridge said to Judge Kinkead that the election was over and he wanted to tell him that he was a d d liar. lie also applied several other vile epithets to the judge, who replied that he was un armed and did not want to have any difficulty on the open streets. Desha told him to go arm himself and he would meet him anywhere at any time. He repeated this several times. Then Lane, who is a comparative stranger in Lexington. 1 avinif recent ly come he'e from Mount Sterling, said, addressing- tbe judge: "This is Judge Kinkead, is it? h'hea you said decent people xvould not entertain Col onel Breckinridge you li-d. My sister entertained him in Woodford county, aud I say to you that you are a Judtre Kinkead again said that he wanted no trouble on th-i streets, that he wa. not armed, wheu Lane threw his coat back and said that he was not armed either, and then repeated the lan gua ge that ha had previously used to the judg-e. Kinkead then walked out the street toward his home. When seen by a correspondent Lane said: "Yes, I called him & , and I will tight him any way he wants to fight, and what's move, if any one of his friends wants to take it up, I will tight them, too." By this time a number of strong Owens men, at least, one of whom, had already killed his run, beyan to crowd into the lobby of the hotel. One of Colonsl Breckinridge's friends, fearing- there would be trouble with Lane, got J. Breckinridge Viley, a strong- Breckinridge supporter, to go la and pruade Lane to leave the hotel. At first Lace destined to g-o, but after taking a drink with Viley, he listened to tho latter's advice and went home. Then the Owens men bgaa to talk and one of them, who hi the reputa tion of not knowing what fear is, taid: "If Desha Breckinridge and friends intend to exterminate all the men who worked for Owens, as they seem t want to do, they will have to enlarge the cemetery. This sort of thing- won't do, no matter how sore they are. They may just as well take their medicine." J. Duane Livingston is a man of about 30 years of age and isthe finan cial ajfent of J. Kenaudy Tod, owner cf tho Kentucky Union railroad. He is a strong- Owen ma i and worked night and day for the victorious can didste. He id from New York city and it is aid he there belonged to Tammany. When seen by a reporter, while his wound was biing- dressed, he said: "I took Desha's abuse and made no attempt to resent it until he called me a liar. Then I had to hit biro. I think I saved myself from a fatal stab by grabbing- bis knife." Judg-e Kinkead is a grandson of Isaac Slby, t'ae first governor of Kentucky, aad is a first cousin of John T. Shlby, Colonel Breckin ridge's law partner, who slapped Attorney Johnson in this face during the famons Pollard trial- Judg-e Kin kd ia about 4t years old. He has ftlwajs keen ai'ierd a naa of th bi??hest physical courage and every body expects that more blood will be hed before this trouble is over. BOTTOM DROPS OUT. Laad la Three Kansas Comities Sinking: Toward th Canter of the Earth. Wichita, Kan., Kept. 22. Land is ;aving toward 'the center of the earth in the vicinity of the junction of Har vey, Butler and Marion counties in this state. Great excitement prevails among the people and many of them are getting away. The disasters are of the most unaccountable origin, and j the state geologist has been sum j moned to investigate the disturbance j of the earth's formations. There was no shock felt when the ground caved in bearing- any resemblance to an earthquake. Near White Water, on the farm of Thomas Essing-ton, an area of 4ux90 feet sunk to the depth of twenty-eight feet, and when a man was let down into the hole his weight alone sunk it three feet more. This occurred yes terday and about th e same moment an area seventy-five feet square sunk at Plum Grove, a depth of 350 feet. This was on the farm of Sid Jones, the sliding-ii carrying- a threshing ma chine and separator with it. Water poured into the latter hole from under ground in sheets of water until it was tilled nearly to the top, but the hole at Wrbite Water is still dry, althoug-h it is supposed that the caved-in earth is resting- upon a vast tody of water. Both places are some seven or eight miles apart. At Annelly, some ten miles from White Water, there were several small cave-ins rang-ing- in depth from six to forty feet. The theories are various, but none of them so far are scientific Not long- sinae a man was digging a well in the vicinity of Plum Grove, and when he had reached a depth of twenty-six feet the drill shot into an apparent vacum and could not be recovered. The supposition is that there is a dried up underground river beneath the land which has caved in. All the cave-ins. great and small, extend in a crooked stream like course a distance of about twenty-four miles. SHOUT CHANGE RACKET. It Is Worked on the St. Joseph Postal iluuey Order Clerk. St. Joseph, Mo., Sept. Zi. Yester day morning- at 10 o'clock a well dressed man of pleasant address pur chased a postal order for a small amount at the postoface, and then re marked to the money order clerk. Cap tain Joe Thompson., that he had too much small money upon his person which he feared would be taken from him by pickpockets. Barn urn's circus was here and the streets were well filled with people to wit ness the street parade. Captain Thompson was obliging and the stranger flashed up a roil which he said contained 5100. sixteen bills and twenty 31 bills. Captain Thomp son pave hirn five 90 bills. The stranger insisted that the clerk count the money over ag-ain to see if the sum was correct. Captain Thompson announced that the pile was short SI. This surprised the strang-er, who took the roll, counted it over and said the captain was correct. Then, he laid the wad down, placed a silver dollar on top. picked up his live twenties, thanked the captain and slowly sauntered out. Captain Thompson then counted the money over ag-ain and found that instead of $100 he had otily S40. The strang-er had deftly palmed a dozen 5 bills and successful- worked the short change racket right in Uncle Sam's house. He has not been cap tured and it is not likely that he will be. Word was received here that the postoliiee in Des Moines had been similarly worked. The rascal seems to follow up the show. GR0SSLV MISMANAGED, The Cook Greenland x-nrion noancetl by One of tlie Party. Cleveland, O., Sept. 22. Ex-Mayor-Gardiner, who was a member of the Cook Greenland excursion party, re turned yesterday. He says the affair was misrepresented ani mis-manag-ed in every particular by Dr. Cook. The Miranda had only arrived in New York harbor with a load of coilee from South America three days before she sailed for Greenland, end was entirely unfit to make the trip. The captain protested vigorously ag-ainst taking- the vessel north, but all to no purpose. Conti uuint .Mr. Gardiner charged Dr. Cock with sending- out alluring- circulars when sret-ting- up the party which proved to be most deceiving-, and that the ex cursion was run for pecuniary benefit to the promoter. The ex Mayor alleges that, while the ex cursion started out with the intention of remaining north two months, enoug-h provisions were only taken to last two-thirds of that time arM the party was soon put on short rations, or two meals per day. M in Log 4 and Arm Crushed. H olden, Mo, Sept. 22. About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon A. C. Meyers, hailing- from Kiderville, Kan., a man about 26, while trying- to g-et on the trucks of Conductor Bar ton's train, fell under the wheels and had both lejjs and his left arm m-in-g-led in a horrible manner. He was taken from under the train and medi cal aid summoned. Amputation of all three members was found neces sary, but he died immediately after it was done. Stevenson to Take the Stamp.

Still Falls Below the Pull Vol ume for the Season. BREADSTUFFS LOWER. Topeka Shows the Largest In crease in Bank Clearings. New Yosk, Sept. 22. R. G. Dun b Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: Plenty of material for encourage ment and also for discouragement can be found by those who seek that and nothing-else. But business men who want to see the situation exactly as it is find accounts so conflicting1 that it is difficult to strike a balance. In the aggregate, business is about a tenth larger than last year, but still falls about twenty-five per cent below a full volume for the season. In boots and shoes the demand con tinues larg-e, with many sales from fctoeks and orders for immediate de liveries and other evidence that re plenishment of stock is not yet com pleted. London prices of wool, beginning at about 5 per cent higher than at the last sale, were not quite up to previ ous quotations, and sales of wool for the three Eastern markets have been larger of late, 6,041, 550 pounds, agrainst 4,216,225 last year and 8,203,100 in 1S93. In three weeks the sales have been 14,296,750, against 9,863,235 last year and 24,661,900 in 1892. Breadstuffs are lower, possibly be cause the g-overnment official report went so far in predicting- short crops as to cause a reaction in opinion. While lower estimates of corn are commonly accepted, the price fell 340, and men are reasoning- that if the ofiic-ial estimate of wheat has been found 100,000,000 bushels out of the way, the corn estimate may err 400, 000,000 or 500,000,000 bushels. While corn declined, neither pork nor lard yielded in price here, thoug-h lower in Chicago. Wheat receipts were 5.4H1, 41S bushels, against 5,532,025 bushels last year, and Atlantic exports only 02.880 bushels against 1,893,334 bushels last year, and prices fell 1 cent. Failures in two weeks of September show liabilities of only S-,Sii?,7t4. of which Sf'V4,716 were of manufacturing and S1,79,04S of trading- concerns. Failures during- the week have been 212 in the United States, ag-ainst 321 last year. ISarilc Clearing:. New York, Sept. 22.

Unator Hlrfim on the Relations Be tween Canada and. America. Osdissbueq, N. Y., Sept. 22. United Statas SenaUr Hig-g-ins de livered a notable address yesterday before a larg-e audience at the Og-dens-burg- fair. lie said: "I have accepted your invitation here to discuss the subject of our relations with our neig-hbors in Canada. The American farmer is subjected to a direct and sharp competition in the American market with the farmer of Canada, who with -wages 22 per cent lower than are paid by farmers of New York and with land more fertile in quality and 36 per cent cheaper in price than land in New York can grow his product at a cost of 44 per cent less than the farmer of New York. '"Whatever may be your loss cer tainly to them will be a vast g-ain. Every cent of. duty now removed is a present from the treasury of the United States to the Canadian farmer of that much money on all lie may sell in the American market. Of i course this is not true of wheat or ar j tides so internationally dealt in that prices are fixed abroad. But it is true of all products that can only be con j sumed near the place of production, ; and therefore in the American mar ! ket. For this reason, and because i she is subject to the conditions inci I dent to her as a part of this cond l ! tion, Canada can not thrive divorced I from the American market. "The idea of a policy, even tempor ary, of reciprocity between the two countries, based upon a treaty, will prove to be illusionary. The obsta cles to it are structural and funda mental. In 1832 the Canadian g-ov-ernment sent representatives to Washing-ton to confer about such a treaty. Their offer lor reciprocity in natural products alone was declined by Mr. Blaine. "No people can be assured the sta bility of a prosperity that rests on the vicissitudes of the leg-islation of a foreign a"overnment, and Canada can have no assurance that the American leg-islation of 1S'J4 will stand more than four years longer. In fact, only in continental unit-, in the union of the people of Canada with the United States as equal states under our fed eral constitution, can Canada be as sured the right to fully share in our markets, and only by continental unity can all the outstanding- diir'er ences and troubles be settled that arise inevitably out of the continent being- divided as it now is. By this means only can each g-overnmeut be secured in its revenue against smug-g-ling-from the other. Only by unity can the continent be secured agaiust the Chinese invasion. "The Canadian Pacific, by its con necting line of steamers from Van couver to Portland and San Francisco; by its connecting lines of American railways to St. Paul, Chicago. Cincin nati, St. Louis, Denver, Boston and New York, is absorbing- a colossal share of the commerce of the conti nent. Not able to earn its axle grease by Canadian traffic, it can afford al ways to underbid its American com petitors, for, however low may be the rate it has to make to secure the business, it is that much better than nothing for their railroad. "The American railways, especially those going to the Pacific, under the relentless competition, while held as ; in a vise by the long and short haul and anti-pooling clauses of the inter i state commerce act, are fast beeom- ing bankrupt, and American invest i nieiits are being- destroyed. "Four years of war, 500.000 of pre cious lives. 2,000,000 of Tives maimed by wounds and by disease and $S.0O0.0o0 was the price we paid, arid freely paid, that a 6trong- power, both mili tary and civil, should not be establish ed on the south of the American union. Such a power cannot grow upon our north and not ulti mate ly bring war and not proximately bring preparation's for war. "For Canada, as a nation of 5,000, 000 of people, we have a feeling of amiability and indifference. For Canada, as a nation of 20,000,000 or 50,000,000, backed by the power of and interlaced interest with the Brit ish empire, we have, to say the least. a very different feeling. "The deceitful illusions held out by the lowered duties of the recent tarirf act will not betray Canadians into the hope that, while remaining a separate people, they will have free access to our markets, whether for field, forest or mine. Both peoples should realize that all dickerings between them should cease, and thtt the great schism in feeling between the two branches of the English speaking race will bi healed when they shall be left to work out their destiny upon the continent, free from entangle ment with the interests, the influ ences or the conflicts of Europe. Then, however, war may rage else where, this ' continent, Canada and America alike, may forever enjoy the blessings of prosperity and peace." British Ship Lost. San Fran-cisco, Sept. 22.

TOLD A "TREASURE" STORY How a Convict tooled the warden and Madu Ills Escape From Priion, Ouo of the most remarkable escapes of etutc prison convicts in Massachusetts on record ocoiiriv d i.nder tho adminis tration of Frederick liobinson, who was warden from 1S-13 to IS 10. A convict namod William Phillips', alias Porter, had Ika u ::-.t lie; to the penitentiary for niiia ycut;; t.-.r h.-.rlary. When on trial, ho made souie r .:iurka bio disclosures to his counsel relative tc a larye amount cf valuable property which Lai boon lY'.isiag for several years and was socreted in aplanu known only to himself, it being the it suit of a successful break which h: cl. timed to have made while in purs uit of his ardn ons and hazardous c-allin.'". To fhe credit of the geiitlemon of the legal profession it is b.li?v.'. :1 that the lawyer was too shrewd to accept cf th?? buried treasure as security for his serv ices unt il it hud been protirced -and An maiided spot ras!i for his fee in cttiujt for his client ct-ly nine y-.-ars' i m prison -nient. The "tnlcrxirisii. burglar" did not desj air of turning his remarkable secret to account even after ho v,-as se curely behind tho bars of the jail. Ue first in a .l c a confidant of the city mar shal of Chariestowu, but hv, Rood soul, could protii nothing by it without the co-operation if the warden of the pris on, who had the prisoner in dnirmce vile. So the warden was taken into con fidence, and tho cenvict tcld to him his j story with so much particularity, with l such attention to minute details and with such apparent frankness and with an honesty that was surprising in cue who had probably before this never breathed an honest breath in his life, that the warden was charmed with bis ingenuousness and the prospect cf btcur ing a share of the gains. It was arranged that the threa should go together to Barnstable, where in a secluded spot, it was said, the stolen property was buried deep in the ground, and to be secure against interruption it was agreed that tho dicing should be j dune in tho night. There were to be no : witnesses to the, proceeding, as that might prove inconvenient in case any j inquiry should bo made as to the right j they had to retain the property in case the owners-should put in a claim. Be- ' sides it would be , impolite to show any distrust of the honesty of the honest fel low who had d jalt so honestly with them. Picks and spades were provided, and there was an equal division of the spoils. One man worked in the pit while the other two kept watch on tho outside. No advantage was taken of the convict's loss of social cast or his help less condition. He was not required to do any more work than the others, and nothing was done to make him feel his degraded position. The work went merrily on until quite a depth was reached, and the poor pris oner who had performed his stint was helped out to make room for one of his companions, whose turn it was to go down into the Polo. They were assured that the requisite depth had almost been reached, and, -while one dug-, the other, with the convict, eagerly watch ed the progress of the work. But such is tho perfidy of human nature that the convict, Phillips, forgetting the good offices performed for him by his companions, the warden and the city marshal even forgetting the fact that he had given np the secret of the treas ure which he had carried for years pushed his friend on the outside into the pit, and abandoning all of his wealth to them ran nimbly away, never so much as stopping to say goodby. It was with much difficnlty that they extricat ed themselves from the hole, . and, strange to relate, they also abandoned the wealth so near at hand. So far as any on knows, it still remains in that retired spot in Barnstable. The two officials were as reticent about it a3 the convict had been, and the only certain information that was given of the Inci dent came from the convict himself, for he was subsequently recaptured. He had the audacity to say that it was "only a little joke" he played on tha , I .'1 1 1 1'l ' "I men, and thero was really no treasur-a there at all. It is possible that the honest fallow again lied, mid that after his rele::-o from prison tho crafty rogue dug ir up and is living in afiluence, honor, i and respected for his great wealth. Certain it is, he was never arraigned for the t s cape, and the only official notice that was taki'll of J.!.; e.-capn-le was whi n a member of tho legislurtux-, with a hu morous turn of mind, introduced ; :i t appropriating a largo sum of v.z-r.c-y "to enable the warden oi the stat-- pri on to continue his .search for hi. id-.:: treasure."
