GANS & ISLEIN MARKED BY THE MAFIA. An Italian Asks the Protection of the Police Against His Countrymen. Venge of the Murder Society Extends Back to His Fath er's Day. His Wife Dies Suddenly and His Little Doy Slashed With a Knife-Him self Warned. Nrw Yonx, Nov. 18.-When Antonio Fiaecomio was mysteriously murdered in front of Cooper Union a few years ago, Fu perintendent Byrnes, then inspector in chief of the detective bureau, made the discov ery that a foreign assassinating soolety, known as the Mafia, had agents in this country and that the order was established in several cities of the United States. The assassination of Flaccomio was laid at the door of the Mafia, but the members of that order are so secretly handed together that the murderers have never been arrested. A marked victim of the Mafia has asked for protection at police headquarters from agents of the order, who have sworn to kill him. This man is Marzio Gondio, an in telligent Italian. He has told his story to the police. The story of his marking for death, he told Detective Farmosa, began thirty years ago when he was still a boy in Italy. His father was an Italian nobleman. In 1840 a murder was committed in Paris, whore his parents lived. His father was a wealthy man and the lower and criminal classes had great hatred for him. To shield a real murderer his father was arrested, thrown into prison, where he was kept for three years, notwith standing he was innocent. Then he was let go upon his paving a large sum of money. Several Italians who were identified with the Mafia bore a grudge against the elder Gondio, which he says has been transferred to the son. Marzio came to this country in 18C7 and soon went into the business of making balloons and flowers. He says he has been hounded several years and threatened with death and has gone from one place to an other to esoape assassination. Marzio for merly lived in Brooklyn. It was there his wife died last year. She had been sick but fifteen days. The Mafia, he said, tried to palm off one of their members as her hus baud. Gondio went to see the Italian priest, who he said, was connected with a church in Brooklyn. He accused him of keeping money. The priest threatened to have him killed if he said anything more about the matter. He had been warned a number times since that he would be killed if he did not keep quiet. One year ago his 11-year-old son was slashed across the face by unknown parties anu by this means poison was Injected into the wound. The lad recovered, however. Gondio says his letters are intercepted and he is being hounded night and day. About three mouths ago he made up his mind to go to Italy end get possession of his wife's property. His enemies heard of it. They tried to get him to go in company with a young man whom Gondio has since learned was i member of the Matfi and was to murder him at the first opportunity. Gon die is trying to get enough money.to get beck to Italy, but fears he will be murdered before he can get away. 1'EARY'S QUEST FOR THE POLE. The Lieutenant Anxious to Go North Once More. WASIiINGTON, Nov. 18.-Lieut. Ponary, who commanded the Kite expedition to north ern Greenland, is anxious to embark on another expedition, this time with the pur pose of reaching the nlorth pole.

SCHOOL FOR CATHOLIC CIILDREN Decisions Arrived at by the Conference of Archbishops. New Yoru, Nov. 18.--The conference of archbishops of the United States, whioh has been in daily session in the archepleoo pal residence of Archbishop Corrigan since Wednesday last, wes concluded to-night. The question that has engaged the atten tion of the archbishops to the largest ex tent, and the one which has prolonged the conference to a period of three days, is the matter relating to parochial schools. To day's proceedings indicate a compromise on the question. The matter is given out by the private secretary of Archbishop Corrf gan, Father Connelly, and is entitled the report on parochial questions, and is as fol lows: At a meeting of archbishops of the United States, held at the residence of Archbishop Corrigan, New York, Nov. 16, 1892, to consider the best means to provide for the religious education of such children as do not at present attend a parochial school or Catholic schools of any kind, the assem bled prelates unanimously agreed on the following resolutions: "1. Resolved, To promote the erection of Catholic schools so there may be accommo dations in them for more, and if possible all, Catholic children according to the de cree of the third plenary council of Balti more and decisions of the holy see. "2. Resolved, '1 hat as to children who at present do not attend Catholic schools, we direct in addition that provisions be made for them by Sunday schools, and also by in structions on some other day or days of the week, and by urging parents to teach their children the Christian doctrine in their homes. These Sunday and week-day schools should be under direct sunervision of the clergy and by intelligent lay teach ere, and when possible by members of re ligious teaching orders." No other decision upon matters discussed by the confereace will at present be com municated to the press by the prelates. 'I he official business of the convention is closed. Some of the archbishops left for their dio ceases to-night and other delegates will probably leave to-morrow afternoon. SENATOR JONES IN LONDON. He Talks for Free Silver in a London Paper. LONDON. Nov. 18.-The Financial News publishes an interview with Senator Jones, one of the American delegates to the mone tary conference. Senator Jones says the people of the United States appreciate the vital importance of the currency question, while in England the people are ignorant of the rudimenta of the matter. There is hardly an American elector who has not formed an intelligent opinion on this sub S ject. It had a most important influence on i the last election. In reply to a question as to whether the democrats would introduce a free coinage bill in congress, the senator said: "Yes. they are bound to. The Times t affirms that a majority of the now house of ) representatives are opposed to free coinage. - I feel sure that this is erroneous. On the i contrary, there is a two-thirds ma a jority in its favor. It was t among the democrats of the last o house that the supporters of free coinage e were found. If you trace these men to a their constituencies you will find they have 1 been re-elected. Whether a free coinage bill is introduced by the democrats, and a whether it passes or not, are different mat a ters. Mr. Cleveland himself is against free a coinage. It is just a question of how far the democrats will feel the influence of his i personality. A great mass of the people t are bent on free coinage. o "Why should free coinnge tend to depre c into silver currency? We hear from In r dian oflicials much about the depreciation a of silver in India, but the Indian gets as 1 much for a rupee in commodities as he ever got. It is not silver that depreciates. It is - gold that appreciates. We hear about great t stocks of silver. Where are they? When I you talk of grain or petroleum you can substantiate your statements. I want the same done in the case of silver." Anarchists Make Threats. aPAns, Nov. 18.-Anarchists here are in dignant over the extradition of Francois, e who was surrendered to French authorities - by an English magistrate to answer the a chsrge of blowing up the restaurant of M. Very in Paris, in April last.

Illinois. b Caused by the Clash of Fleeing l Summer and Advancing a Winter Clouds. PIath Vurnued by Each of tihe Three Forks of the Storm-Heavy Snow East. CnrCAoO. Nov. 18.-The conflict of ele ments incident to the exit of warm weather and advent of winter's chilly blasts, culmi nated to-day in one of the most destructive, far-reaching storms of the year. The ini ital battle ground of the mighty opposing forces, it appears. was near the little city of Rtedbud, in Randolph county, in the ex treme southwest part of Illinois. Sweoping down from the north came a tremendous storm of snow, rain and sleet, which, en countering the warm air currents of "Egypt," developed throe distinct cyclone f storms diverging from a common center i near Itedbud. Taking a southeasterly course, one prong of the storm passed through western Kentucky and Tennessee, leveling everything in its path at Redbud, and only when northern Alabama was I reached had it spent its force. To the westward moved a second storm center, passing through central Missouri, thence across northern Kansas. finally being lost in the mountains of Wyoming. The third arm took a northerly course, through Iowa, veering west into Nebraska, leaving a hope less tangle of telegraph wires in its wake, until it was impossible to reach any of the great cities west of Chicago except by cir cuitons routes. THE IEDI)BUI) CALAMITY. More Lives Lust Titan at First Reported- Appeal nfr Help. i.anoUD, IllI., NOV. 18.-The cyclone yes torday completely demolished one portion of the city, wrecking ninety-three build- I ings. killing three people, wounding twenty I and causing a loss of property to the I amount of $150,000. It was one of the wort storms which has ever passed over the state. The scene following the disaster was one of utter ruin and desolation. The country was strewn with debris of all de scriptions, tr8es had been torn up by the roots and carried hundreds of feet away. Houses were razed to the ground and scat tered over acres of ground; while household goods and wreckage of all description were torn and mixed into an unrecognizable mass. The work of rescuing the wounded and taking the dead from the ruins began im mediately after the storm ceased. The I work was hindered by the inky darkness and cbuld only progress under the momen tary flashes of lightning. It is feared that several of the injured will yet die. In many cases people war left unhurt in their beds while their houses were blown half a mile away. One-third of the people of Redbud did not hear the storm and rested quietly in bed until it was done. Had the tornado's track been 300 feet further north the business portion of the town would have been destroyed. The mayorconvened the council and the citizens called a meeting and relief committees were appointed to solicit assistance from the public. It is believed that Rledbud, which has always been prompt on all calls of dis tress from elsewhere, will not be forgotten. Contributions forwarded to the mayor will be placed in good hands. Terrific Gale on the Lakes. DE.TOIT, Mich., Nov. 18.-The wind blew a terrific gale on the lakes last night. Its average velocity was nearly forty miles per hour, and the maximum fifty miles. It is hoped that few disasters will result fromu the ale, nos ample notice was given of its approach. Tihe only serious casuality re ported in this vicinity is that of the large schooner Hattie Wells, lumber laden, which was driven ashore on the west side of Lake Erie during the night. Slre is exposed to the full fury of the gale and seas are break ingr over her. The crow succeeded in reach ing shore. First Winter Storm. I)rurUQU, Ia., Nov. 18.-Dubuque's first winter storm proved the severest and most disastrous experienced for many years. Snow began falling yesterday morning, no companied by high wind, and before night a blizzard set in and in a short time tele. grath communication was entirely cut off. In the city telephone, fire alarm and every kind of electric service was rendered use less. It is impossible to estimate the dam age, but in the city alone it will run way up in the thousands, while it will probably be much more along railonds in this vicinity. Crushed In a Hiouse. CIreSTER, Ill., Nov. 18.--'he cyclone which did so much damage at Redbud, de stroyedl considerable property here. The storm blow down a large tree upon the honse of linrmon t()tenn,ri six miles north of Liere, crushed it in, killing his wife andi two children. IEvery iullase I)ellollishell. I)iDruhN, Ark., Nov.
