ANS& --- EEIN MORAL EFFECT OF MURDER Satisfactory to the Anarchists of Paris, Being a Very Successful Advertisement. Their Intention of Creating a Reign of Terror Has Been Achieved. Civil Officers Have Difficulty in Securing Shelter, as Other Tenants Object to Their Presence. PAnui, Marqh 29.-In consequence of the dynamite explosions the people living in the vicinity of any one connected with the government are very much alarmed and in many cases removing. As an inducement to the prospective tenants, the landlords announce that no one occupying a judicial position will be accepted as a tenant. Sev eral landlords have served notice upon suach tenants to quit. Many tourists are depart ing in consequence of the sc:re. Upon a house occupied by eight police officials the following notice was found to day: *'This house is shortly to be blown up with dyna mite." At a meeting of the municipal congress to-day it was announced that all the an thors of the recent dynamite outrages had been arrested but two. Many householders to-day asked the police for proteetion. It is impossible to comply with every request, but the people have been told that every thing possible will be done to insure their safety. A wealthy distiller living at Rouen has ieceived a notice that his distillery will be blown up with dynamite on May day. The police are extraordiarily active to day, on account of the recent explosions. Many visitors are leaving the city. It is not.known where the next blow will strike. There is no denying the fact that the ex pressed intention of the anarchists to in auaurate a reign of terror has caused much consternation. An important meeting of the authorities was held at the ministry of the interior to-day. The situation was dis cussed in all its bearings and it was ar ranged to execute stringent measures for the prevention of further outrages. The residences of all prominent officials are guarded by day and night. Thevenet, ex minister of justice, has received a threaten ing letter. Judge Boenit, against whom the recent explosion in the Boulevard St. Germain was directed, has been notified to quit by his landlord, who says if the judge remains the tenants will leave. The Figaro publishes interviews with two leading anarchists. They declare the members of the party are acting singly and on their own responsibility. There was no ureconcerted plan to canuse the explosions. Both expressed themselves delighted with the moral effect of the explosions, which, they said would direct greater attention (to their doctrines. PIt.,I EDTEATED BUTCnRFIY. Revelations of a Post Mortem' Examinae tion or Deeming's Victims. LIvERPOor, March 29.-Dr. Hutchinson, one of the medical men who conducted ths poet mortem examination on the bodies of Mrs. Deeming and four children, found buried under the floor at Dinham villa, Rainhill, said to a representative of the Associated press that the crime discloses a calculating wickedness and cool, heartless savagery almost beyond belief. The work of the murderer wasee expert. Only in one case was there a stroke more than sufficient for its purpose of eausing death. Each stroke severed a vital organ and no more might have been accomplished by a sur reon or a butcher who knew his business well. The mother and children had par taken of the evening meal. 'The mother was first called into the room where the murderer was await ing her. It appears that as she stooped to untie her shoe she was attacked from behind and died al most without a struggle. Then the chil dren were called, one by one, to meet their death. Bertha, the eldest, had her thumbs tied behind her back and, a similar bandage wound twice around her head so as to cover her mouth and keep her from crying. A pillow case was placed over her head and the murderer strangled her. The hands of the second girl were tied behind her back, but in the case of the other children this precaution was not thought necessary. One other significant and sinister fact is that although the throats of four or five victims were cut on none of the bodies or clothing was there a trace of blood. The very terms of the lease upon which Deeming hired Dinham villa gave proof of ia hideously cold blooded, premeditated butchery. 'Ihe document, which was drawn up and written by Deeming himself, shows that when he took the house the at ocities had already been planned. Taken altogether, it is believed no country ever I reduced such a consummate, utterly un principled and wholly conscienceless villian as this fiend in human foram, who killerd women and children with as little colu punction as an ordinary man would kill a snake. A dispatch from Melbourne says Deeomr ing is guarded night and day aboard the Ballarat by seven watches. It has been dis covered that his appearance of having shaved his mustache is due to plucking the hair out by the roots in order to baflle identification. The detective n.company ing Deemuing hints that he possosese links in the chain of evidence showing that )Jeeming committed some of the murders attributed to Jack the Ripper. WVOUL) 1.E IIENEFICIAL. Renewal of the Mloduls Virvenl, In the Opinion of lHaden Powetl. LONlox, March 2,).-In the house of com mons e dward (ourley asked whether the government, before refusing the request of the United States for the renewal of the modun vivendi. had under consideration the dispatch of Sir Iladeu-Powell, the Brit ish cointniseioner, stating that a renewal of the prohibition atgainst indiscriminuate seal lug and limiting the catch to 7,500 yearly would be beneficial, and if so, why the policy thus indicated had not been followed. James W. Lowther. parliaountary secre tary of the foloign oflice, replied that it wae incorreot to any that the government had refused to consent to a renewal of the modus vivendi. Mir Baden-l'owell had said, in his opinion, that taking a yeaa's limited crop could not injure the seal herds. but that a renewal of last year's pro hibition and a 7,500 limit would be bene ficial, although unnuecessry. That policy, Lowther declared, was being followed, sub ject to the conditions eonsldered necessary by the hom e government in the interests of the British subjects engaged in sealing. Lowther's stttement was greeted with cheers. The 8iHOLetOnt Indians. ItOWN'si VASIt.y, Minn., March 2t.--In dian Agent McCausick, at the Hisseton agenoy, has sworn in 100 mooe native po licemen to guard the lines. Many men are oamped along the line and make raids into the reservation whenever they can. C(i AMEN ARE CUTEI. They Discover a New Method of Breaking tInto This Country., The United States will have to amend its laws restricting Chinese immigration, or the wltole force at the command of Marshal Foray will be powerless to keep the Celes ties from erossing the border. 'The cn ning Chinamen, aided by a Montreal law yer, have at last devised i scheme by which they think to evade the exclusion nat. As matters stood until Tuesday last, it was generally supposed that it only required the vigilance of the United States treasury agents to prevent the advent of Mongolians into the country, but now all this has been changed and the Chinaman can ride across the line secure in the new scheme which has enabled him to dsfeatAmerican legislation. Under the provisions of the treaty between Great Britain and the United States the latter is compelled to admit within its border, with the right of residence, any British citizen, irrespective of race, creed or' color. The Chinaman has taken advantage of this clause in the treaty. On Thursday six of the pig tails presented themselves before the superior court at Montreal, and after de claring intentions to becone subjects of her most gracious majesty, Queen Victoria, they were duly naturalized and admitted to the free rights of Canadian citizenship, This was but the first step in the game. Next eveninqs three of these Chinese British subjects took the Canadian Pacific train for Boston. The United States officials stopped them on the border but they showed their British naturalization papers and the officials were compelled to allow them to pass on unmolested. A pi ominent United States treasury official says: "Yes, unfort unately, Chinamen seem to have knocked out our legislation. In point of fact, they have driven a coach and four through it. Now what is to prevent our being flooded with British Mongolians by tens of thou sands before we can find some method of checking them? The authorities in Wash ington are in consultation over the matter and it is probable it will be the cause of correspondence between the two countries. It appears that just now-the Canadian gov ernment is in for a soft thing. First, they collect the $50 per capita poll tax, and then, by making them do a little swearing, get rid of their very undesirable presence by passing them over to us. To my mind, there are worse complications in this thing than the Bering sea trouble." AN AMERICAN GENIUS. Invention of a Successful Disappearing Gan Carriage. SANDY Hoox, March 29.-The new disap pearing gun carriage, at the proving grounds, to-day was put through the prov ing test. The machine is a triumph of American skill and genius and the first car riage of the kind that has been successful. A large number of tests were made by Eng land, Germany, France ant Russia to find just subch a carriage as this, but all were unsuccessful. The test proper, began at two o'clock. The gun was mounted on the parapet of the old fortification, with the muzzle turned toward the lightship. When prepared to load, no part of the gun could be seen from the beach in front of the par apet, but the moment the loading was com pleted machinery was set at work and in an instant the big gon, weighingf7,000 pounds, raised above the wall. The elevation for fire is eight feet from the load position. The gun was fired with an elictric primer and the recoil was easy. The time slapsing from the completion of the load position to recovery after reaching the firing position and dropping back, was less than half a minute, and it is estimated that the gun could be hoisted, fired and lowered to the original position in less than twelve sec onds. The ann used to-day was one of the new ten-inch steel rifles, and the projectile used weighed 575 pounds. 'The carriage was designed by H. H. Spiller, one of the designers of the Terror, and built under his direction by the South Boston Iron works. The main principle is compressed air. IOT ON THE BILLS. A Lively Encounter Behind the Scenes In an Opera Company. LouSvhaLES, Ky., March 29.-With blood streaming from a wound over the right eye and his face out in several other places. J. K. Murray, the leading barytone in the Carleton Opera company rushed from the stage at Harris' theater, closely pursued by W. P. Carleton. treasurer of the company. The latter has the management or the aompany, while his rather, W. T. Carleton, is in New York. 'there has been trouble between the company and the manager, and last night in a quarrel with Murray, Carle ton struck him in the eye. The quarrel arose about one of the leading ladies, Miss Wisdom, who. it is alleged, has too much to say in regard to the manage menrt. Just after the curtain fell Murray ap proached Carleton and complained that Miss Wisdom had entirely too much voice in the control of the conipany. Carleton replied with a blow that sent the blood streaming from Murray's face. A scene shifter separated the combatants, and they retired to their dressing rooms. The en tire company has been dissatisfied with young Carleton's management. and several have left since the company came to this citv,,so it is stated. Mr. Murray and his wife, who is one of the leading ladies, and is known to the public as Clara Lane, will withdraw at once from the company. PAWNEES IN A FRIENZY. Declare Their Intantio of (Going on the TVarpath. G(irrumn , O. T., March 29.--The Pawnee Indians have worked themselves into a frenzy by the ghost dance during the past week and now openly declare their inten tion of going on the warpath. Two hun dred bucks have donned their war clothes and war jpaint and are gaining in numbers daily. Fearing trouble Deputy Marshals Wearns and Tassman went to the reserva tion to investigate and found an alarming condition of affairs and secretly arrested White Black and Buft'alo Black, who claimed to be missionaries of the messiah and who were getting up the dance. When the Indians heard of the arrest a dozen frenzied red men started in pursuit, but the marshals got safely away with the prisoners. They arrived here yesterday and the Indians were vlaced under $l,t(H) bonds and sent to Wichita for sale keeping. The marshals state that the Indians are terribly in earnest and threaten vengeanoe agaiust the whites for depriving thent of their lands. Couriers have booeen sent by the I'awnees to the lowas, SBa', Fox, Mis souris and Kickapoos, urging them to join in a war. .Reorts from those places state that a large number of Indians are joining in the war dance. Two troops of United States cavalry passed through here yester. day on route to the Pawnee reservation to quell the disturbance. CORN ER 'ISTONE hA'sYINli.

The Announcement Quite a Sur prise to the Members of That Body. Scant I'robabllty That the Mensure Will J'Pas That ltetibllcan Ilodly--)ther Washlington News. WAsIN(urTroN, March 29.- -'The notice given in the senate this afternoon by Stew art of his intention to call up his free cginage bill Monday created a sensation. Notwithstanding the fact that it was ex pected, in view of the set-back the Bland bill received in the house, that the struggle must sooner or later be transferred to the senate, as far as can be learned, Stewart appears to have acted on his own responsi bility in precipitating the issue. It is said by some silver men that Speaker Crisp told them to pass the silver bill in the senate. let it come over to the house, when it would be in a position much more favorable for action than if it came before the house in the shape of an original report from the coinage committee. Some republican silver senato~s, unable to see the force of this reasoning, fear the speaker is play ing for the party advantage which might be expected to follow the passage of a silver bill by a republican senate,, even by the instrumen tality of democratic votes. The democratic senators as yet are undecided as to the attitude they shall assume when the bill is called up by Stewart. Carlisle remarked that the outcome of the effort to pass the bill will be extremely doubtful. This view appeared generally entertained on this side of the chamber. It is probable there will be a general consultation among demo oratic senators before Monday with the purpose of reaching aa agreement upon a united line of action. The republican side is of opinion that the bill will not pass.. Hansbrough (S. D.), who has been included in all estimates in the ranks of the silver men, said very frankly this afternoon that he would op pose with his vote any effort to pass a free coinage bill and' believed that there were not ten republican senators who would vote for such a bill. He called attention to the fact that Perkins, successor to Plumb in the Senate; is an'anti free coinage man, and felt confident that even with the full etrength which the democratic silver sena tors had shown in' the last struggle, the bill wotld not.have more than one major ity. At a matter of fact, he believed the demoi.ta waere divided on the question, asd he expected that when it came to a test vote; many of them who formerly voted for the Vest bill would vote against the Stewart bill. Stewart himself is not very sanguine of the success of his move. He says, however, the country is entitled to know exactly how the senators stand on the silver question, and he proposes to put all of them on record if he can. Tha free coinage men have not yet given up the fight in the house. The controversy between Bland and the speaker was the subject of general comment to-day, and Bland announced that he would make no further attempt to secure a cloture rule, but Pierce and other leaders have again taken courage and will make a supreme at termnt to force the cnmmittne , ..,- - rule. Up to this evening they have se cured between ninety and 100 names to their petition, but require 118. Many be. lieve it will be impossible to get thea. The most jubilant members of the house just now are the people's party congress men, who rejoice in the discomfiture of the democratic majority and proclaim that the failure of the democratic house to pass a free coinage bill means that the people's party will carry six or eight states in the coming campaign. Watson (Ga.) talked at length to this effect to-night and said this action is the death of the old demo cratic organization, particularly in the south. Debate on tile Tariff: WASHINGTON, March 29.-The tariff de bate was resumed in the house to-day, but the discussion was rather uninteresting. Indeed, it was considered doubtful by lead ing members of the house whether it will be possible to revive public interest in tar iff debates again this session and the lead ,re are in favor of closing general debate on the tariff bills within a week and send ing one or more of these measures to the senate without delay, that the republicans may not be able to assert on the stump this fall that adequate time was not afforded the senate to consider tariff hills. Mc Creary (Ky.) made a general attack upon the protection sytem all along the line, saying that under it combinations and trusts sprang up and their members be came millionaires, while labor had to struggle harder for existence and the ne cessities of life. Dollivar (Iowa), in oppos ing the measure, oriticised the Mills bill and said the pending mlleasure would make no impression. The fact that this house, almost unanimously democratic, claiming to have been sent here as a protest against the McKinley act, had not dared to touch that law except in acts of child's play, was evidence that that argtnrment of free trade was a demRagoguing proclamation, secretly discovered by the people, who were ueating it on barn-doors in Iowa and Nebraska. Two Nears ago the republican party, under a tempest of false pretenses, had gone down, carrying the McKinley act on its baok. This year the McKinley act carried the republican party, and the gentleman from whom the measure took its name looked from the governor's chair down on a country made happy and prosperous un der its plovisions. S iat itled the. 'l'reatty. WAentIIroON, March 29L.--'The senate in executive session this afternoon decided to coumpleto the consideration of the ilering sea arbitration treaty, and it wees Itifled by a unanimous vote at the conclusion of the discussion. The debate itself was with out incident. Sherman presented two amendtments, which were agreed to. One ip ovides that arguments and proceedings shill be in the I.n:lishl language. Lord Salisbury has already assented to this, as well as to the second amendment, which requires the arbitrators to make their de cision, if possible, within four montbhs instead of three, ftnom the close of argu iuents. All correspondence in the case has already been published. There was an air of relief about the senators as they emerged from the chamber. and all of them were glad the troublesome treaty had been dis posed of at last. Ellia ilanud lnvestigatlon. WVAelINaulaN, March 29,-'Lhe Ellis island investigation by the joint senato and house committee on ituluigration to-day was marked by animation anditartnese. (Chair man Chandler, in questioning Assistant Hucretary of theTreasery Nelttleton, sought to ptlace upon him responsibility for the policy under which the department Of Im migration collected head money for im provements at Ellis island. Nettleton resented this, Chandler then went so far as to charge Nettleton with making a false statement, and Nettleton resented in strong language, A still more sensational turn was given the investigation shortly after when Nettleton read a letter severely reflecting on the superintendent of immigration. In brief, it said Owen was incompetent, thoroughly untrustworthy, guilty of circulating ma liolous alanders, and slipshod in handling public moneys. Owen denied having air culated any slanderous reports about Net tieton, and said he was not responsible for the irregularities in the vouchers referred to. The Wool cill. WASHIiNoroN , March "i.--The Springer free wool bill will probably be passed by the house and sent to the senate within a week. This is the programme discussed to. day at a series of consultations between the speaker and democratic members of the ways and means committee ancd later pre sented to Chairman Slprinuer. It will prob. ably receive formal endorsement of the democratic majority of the committee to morrow, and the house, at the proper time, will be requested to give its concurrence by agreeing to a suspensicun of the rules for the passage of the bill. In assenting to this project Springer advisec the members of the committee that his physician had said the condition of his health was such that making a speech in the house in the near future would probably cause a relapse. He therefore abandoned the idea of closing debate on the bill, and says it and other tariff bills should be passed as soon as possible. CIHEEIIS AN D H ISSES. Greeted the Rival Leaders of the Irish Factlons--Great ilsorder, NEW YORcK, March 29.-The first publio meeting in this city of the Irish Federation of America, the new organization designed to supplant the Irish National league, was held Monday night and was marked by dis order inspired by the Parnellites, who were present in large numbers. l'he police, to preserve anything like order, had to forcibly eject from Cooper union at least twenty men and women. The first sign of disorder ap peared when Dr. McGlynn came in, just before the meeting was called to order. Some one shouted "Three cheers for Mc Glynn," and when ArchbishopCorrigan and other prominent gentlemen anpeared on the platform a storm of isses and cheers went around. )r. Th~ as Addise Em met, president of the . rganization, rose to call the meeting to or4or, but just then a lank individual got up gndyelled, "Three cheers for Parnell." then came another storm of hisses. The police hustled the man out, rifter which Dr. Emmet explained the objects of the meeting. The new fed eration, he said, is in full co-operation with the national federation of Ireland and funds raised through its influence in this country will be transmitted to the committee of the national party and used for no other purpose than to defray ex penses for the coming election of members of parliament. The full measure of home rule cannot be gained unless a full delega tion is sent to parliament. [Prolonged hisses ]. Charles A. Dana spoke, admonishing harmony. Prof. Brophy started to tell how Ireland could best be served. when Mres. Margaret Moore, a well known Irish woman, who has been in Kilmainham jail, cried out "You can best serve Ireland by following Parnell." This created the wildest excite ment and Parnellites cheered themselves hoarse. Police Captain McCullough walked up the aisle and announced that any one who didn't come to hear the speaker had better leave the hall. Mrs. Moore, with some trouble, was induced to resume her seat. When Archbishop Corrigan walked on to the platform the applausethatgreeted him drowned all efforts at hissing by Mc Glynn's friends. Between $3,000 and $4,000 were subscribed for Ireland, and iesolu tions adopted that for the purpose of giv ing effect to the intentions of the federa tion it should proceed immediately to raise funds by subscription and organizein order to secure by legitimate means for every Irish constituency an active nationalist representation. STATE NEWS. A Shooting at Virginia City, Thought to Be Accidental. VnyINIr i Crre, March 28.-[Special.]- About five o'clock yesterday evening our citizens were startled by the announcement that Waiker Gilbert, son of II. . Gilbert, treasurer of Madison county, was found on the floor of the olfica of the brewery be longing to Mr. Gilbert, with a bullet hole in his forehead and a twenty-two-caliber rille by his side. Three doctors were sum moned on the instant and they thought there was no hope for his recovery, and that he was really then dying. During the night, however, he rallied and conscious ness returned in Dart and this morning he is the same condition. The doctors probed the wound to the depth of three and one half inches and have now no hope of his recovery. It is thought to be accidental. Itev. I,amout's RIesignation.

TOOK HIM AT HIS WORD, Trixy Leighton, Alias Mamie Freder ieks, Kills Herself With a Revolver. She Passed as the Wife of a Faro Dealer, Formerly of Butte. lie WVan a Wltnel. of the DIeed-Reconsld ered tlls Own Intention to Comn inlt Suilide. fiosoANO, March 29.-[Special.1-About 1:3:0 o'clock this morning, while Officer Nimes was patrolling his regular boat, near Howard Street bridge, he heard cries of distress coming from the water below, sn if some one was drowning. Hastening to the alaoe he found A. C. Leighton, a faro dealer at the Richelieu gambling rooms, in the water and clinging to a log in a desper ate effort to save himself from drowning. With nome difficulty he was rescued and taken to the station. He was very drunk and refused to talk. Officer ilasmmusen, when he learned of Leighton's arrest, hur ried away to his rooms in the Heller block to inform his wife of what had happened. When the door to the room was opened a ghastly sight met his gaze. The woman whom Leighton called his wife was half lying, half sitting on the floor, near a bed, with her feet drawn under her and her head resting in a pool of blood upon the floor. The police were notified at once and the coroner summoned. The woman had evidently been dead about an hour when found. Her body was still warm and the blood had just began to clot. The room and effects were guarded by the police until the coroner arrived, when he ordered the body of the woman placed upon the bed, whence she was removed to the morgue. The coroner's jury gave a peculiar verdict, saying it was a question whether the woman was murdered or committed suicide. Leighton, later on, said he was in the room with the wn,nan at the time of her death. He was lying on a lounge asleep, woke up and saw her dressed as it to go out. He asked where she was going. In reply she said she was about to enter Kittie Miller's house of ill fame. Leighton said she had better kill herself before doing so. The woman took him at his word, snatched up a revolver, placed it to her temple and fired. He attempted to put her on the bed, but was too drunk to do so. He then thought to kill himself and jumped into the river. Both Leighton and the woman were formerly of Butte, where both are well known among the seorting fraternity. The woman went by the name of Trixy Leighton here, but her right name is Mamie Fredericks. THE LEIGHTONS. Known to a Good Many Sporting People in Helena. Trixy Leighton and Al Leighton are known in Helena, though neither, so far as can be learned, ever lived here. From a recent arrival from Spokane some little is learned of the couple. The woman had always claimed to have been married and divorced, and the mother of three or four children, who are in San Francisco with their father. Trixy Leighton, as she was known, was herself a ban Franciscan. She was a woman somewhat past 30 years of age, and while not strikingly handsome, was still very fine looking. One noticeable feature of her personal appearance was her remarkably small feet. She could obtain no shoe of woman's regular aizes to fit her, and wore a number thirteen misses' shoe. She was :deeply infatuated with Leighton, and at times, when he was away, would grow hysterical and walk the floor for hours, raving about him. Leighton and the woman lived in Butte for a long time. He was a gambler and faro dealer there, as at Spokane. The woman has a sister in Butte now, living at one of the beer halls. Of Leighton little is known, except that he was an attractive looking fellow, who was subject to all the usunal ups and downs of a gambler's life. BUSINESS MEN AND NON-MINERS. Resolutions Adopted by a Mass Meeting at Burke, Idaho. BIUrKE, Idaho, March 29.-[Special.]-At a mass meeting held here to-night by the business men and non-miners, which was attended by about 400 people, speeches were made by all the leading citizens, and the following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, The Coeur d'Alene Mine Own ers' association saw fit to close down the mines of this district on a pretense of ex cessive railroad freights, and now, after having publicly announced that said diffi oulties are satisfactorily adjusted, have shown that their object was the reduction of wages, the prolongation of the hours of toil, and, incidentally, the destruction of the miners' unions; therefore, we., the bust-' ness men and non-miners of the city of Burke, do hereby resolve: That our heartfelt sympathy and aid shall be extended to the miners in their struggle, for the laborer is worthy of his hire, and we further resolve that the statements published by the said Mine Owners' association that the district was terrorized, that the citizens did not dare to express their opinions, and that there is fear of lawless or incendiary eon duct on the part of the Miners' union, are palpably false and uncalled for and an unmerited insult to the whole community; and we further resolve that we, as cttizens, will do all in our power to legally, peace fully and with moral suasion induce all non-union 0nou to refuse to accept labor at a price or on terms below the union terms.
