Borden, the millionaire mill owner, nnd hi teed wlfo were murdered In their homo to-day Just before coca, and although thore were othor members of the family on the premiiei at the time, they beard no sonnd, and the murderer eicaped without leaving a clue, so far as Is known, al though his clothing must hare been covered With the blood of his victims. The boldness of the crime and tho utter absence of anr ap parent motive make It the more myttorlous. At 11 o'clook Mr. Borden was lying on the lounge In tils sitting room reading a nowt paper. He was seen by his daughter. Lizzie, at she passed through the room on her war to the barn to get a pleao of Iron with whloh to mend a flower pot The servant. Bridget Sul livan, passod through the room at the same time with a pall of water In her hand. Bhe wat on her way to the seoond floor to olean the Borden was In hor room over the parlor, changing her dress, preparatory to making a visit to sick neighbors. FIfteon minutes later Miss Borden reentered the house, and when she stepped through the doorway Into the sitting room she saw hor father's body, horribly mutilated nnd lying in a pool of blood by the side of the lounge. Bhe was overwhelmed at the sight Then she creamed for help. Bridget Sullivan was washing a window In a rear room, but she lost no time in running to Miss Borden's aid. Mrs. Churchill, n neighbor, also hoard the cream, and she hastened to the house. She entered the house by the front way. and the servant oommanded all approaches to tho bouse from the rear, but neither saw any one leaving the house. Miss Borden thon called for her mother, but received no response. Bhe ran up stairs to her mother's room, and faint ed whan the opened the door. Her mothor had boon murdered In the same brutal manner, her skull being orushed In by tome heavy Instrument apparently an axe. T Mr. Borden had been brained by the back of I - the axe. and. In addition, had been hacked f With the sharp edge until his head was ohop- I ped to pieces. Both rooms in which tho mur- I dert had been committed were bespattered I With blood, but showed no signs of struggle I No attempt at robbery bad boon made. Who the murderer was. why he committed the ortme, or where he went to, are the questions Which the police would like to solve, but thus far they have found nothing that can help them. They have arrested three persons on , suspicion, but the only suspicious circum- Stanoe albout them was the fact that they Iwert teen in tlfe neighborhooiabout the hear Of the murder. Mr. Borden was a very large owner of real J estate In Fall River. Mr. Charles a Cook was fcla agent collecting his rents, and yesterday paid to the old gentleman a large sum of money from his rentals. He made regular deposits in the Union Bank and never paid any ac counts except by check. , He left home as usual about 0 o'clock this morning to take his deposit to the bank, and called at the Dnion Savings Bank at the same time. He was shaved at his barber's. Pierre Ledue.at0:33o'olock. At atout half-past 10 bis deposit was received at the Union Bank, and he went from there to his home, arriving about twenty minute of 11 o'clock, and going fnto the sitting room to recline upon the lounge and read the newspaper. Mr. John N. Morse, hit .brother-in-law. went out about the same time Mr. Borden, did, and Mrs. Bordensald as he passed out: "Good 1 morning, we shall expect you back to din- Mrs. Borden went up stairs to make the bed In which Mr. Morse slept in the bedroom In the front of the house. The houso faces the west On the north side Is tho arbor and in the south is an entry, with . ttalrs leading to the chnmber in the second story. Back of the parlor is the sitting room Where Mr. Borden wcHfteadlng. The lounge upon which he lay was against i the partition separating the dining room from tho kitchen. A back entry leads from tho kitchen to the yard. In this back entry are the back stairs. The pantry Is rtlroctly under these back stairs and the door loading to the It Is' now the presumption that the nssassln Was concealed In thisoollarway.dlroctlyunder the back staircase, when Miss llordon passod out to go to the harn. It is the theory of the police, and it seoms well substantiated by all the evidence, that as soon as the murderer found the coast clear he stole through the kitchen. Brldsut Sullivan being un stairs, and passed into the sitting room, where he found Mr. Borden. In the opinion of Medical Examiner Polan, Mr. Borden was killed with one blow. There wasia horrible gash, cleaving the skull and penetrating to the brain. This cut passed di rectly ecroits tho right eye. There were one or two detached outs higher on the head, but be ' ' lleved to be made by the same blow. It would uom npparunt. however, that for tome cause or othor Mrs. Borden's attention was aroused, and probably she started to come down the front stairs from the parlor chamber. The assaMn. (hearing hor movements, and knowing thatihe must have no witnesses, rushed up stairs with tho inBtinct of self preservation. She probably ran back to, tho chamber sho had just left.where two windows open directly upon tho street Bhe passod through the entry door round a. bed that stood out in tho middle of the floor and was struck down between the bed , and tho bureau. Her skull was split open at 1 ono blow, just as her husband's had been. There was no sound that anybody heard un til Miss Borden's cry ramo ringing up the back fairs to the servant girl in the attic. a Mrs. Churchill, who responded to the daugh ter's scream, lives not more than twenty feet from tho sitting room window. The murder could have boon seen from her sitting room. . , As soon as the police were notltled of the murder Marshal Hilllard placed a cordon of police around the house and allowed nobody to enter, although hundreds crowded around 1 tho premises. The officers made vain search for traces of the murderer. , Whoever he was, be doparted as stealthily as he came. Bearch was also made tor tho -7 weapon. No less than two axes and two hatchets weie found in different places, but not one of them boro a trace of blood. The peculiarity of the cuts seemed to indi cate that the weapon was a cleaver, but no euch article was to be found. The remark of the servant girl. "It must have been the Portuguese." gave rise to a story which Marshall Hilllard says be has proved to be an Idle talc, which was that a Portu guese who had been at work on Mr. Borden's farm in Swansea, across the river, had been discharged, and had come hack to tho house demanding his pay, and had mur dered Mr. and Mrs. Borden. Marshal Hilllard says Hint there was not "i any Portuguese that can be found who worked r for Mr, Borden or who had recently been dls ' charged. Some of the neighbors saw a man, whom they took for a Portuguese, walking up and down In front of Mr. Borden s house, but the Sman they describe as a Portuguese is a Hweede, who has worked for years on Mr. 1 Borden s farm In Swansea and who was his foreman thon and highly trusted by all the family. He proved satisfactorily tothe police that he was not and oould not have been In Fall Itiver and that he had not been out of hit house. Ho had no quarrel with Mr. Hor den. who thought very highly of him. The first man arrested was John Joseph ' Maher. He was found by an officer In the out skirts under a otr on the hew Boston road, lie was considerably under the influence of liquor, and was locked un. . It was found that all lie knew of the case was what somebody had told him, Maher was locked upon general principles and held for drunkenness. Two suspicions peddlers of jewelry, which they were ready io exchange for old clothing, were overhauled on il.iy tiro!. ..... They were In a side-bar ton Imggy.anri were arrested on suspicion. They told two differ, 1 ert atoiies, stylus atonotimu that they had come from Brockton direct, and nt another they stopped In Taunton last night and came to tall ltivorthlt morning. They were arrested about half past 1 o'clock, and the pair were located in the vicinity of Sooond street this foronoon ns early ns 10i40 o'clock by the police. Those are all thopollae have under arrest It Is said that Mr. Borden hnd natorofor two months in thelDonlon block, nnd that an out-of-town stranger called on him about two weeks ago nnd wanted to rent It that Mr. Borden said: "No, I'll not let It for what is presumably 'a liquor store' and that thero were words In ooneequenee. Mr. Bor den wna hoard to say to the man; Call and sco mo ncxttlmo you come to town." Tho man went olT. Blnoe then tho store has been let to a Fall Iilvsr itrademnn. Mrs. Ifor don was present at the Interview of this out-of-town strnngor. and tho theory Is that if ho killed Mr. Borden he must have romeraborod that Mrs. Borden would recall him, and would be dnnirorous in a trial. The police are wntoh Ingthn brother-in-law, Mr. Morse. It is strange that. If robbory was tho motive nothing was taken. Andrew .1. Cordon was a member of the fa mous old Fall Klvcr family. Hewas a son of Abraham Borden, and several years ago was the head of the old firm of Bordon A Almy in the furniture buslnoss. Investing hit money later In roal estate. He was President of the Union Savings Bank, a director of the B. M. C. Durfee Safe Deposit and Trust Company, and identified with the Central Congregational Church. He was about 05 years old ana his wife was about 00. THEY BATB TltAT PARROT. Life la a Bib Boarding House Disturbed by OaaorTkeae Crcaa nnd Gold Birds, An ambitious and handsome green parrot with a scarlet neok and gold ear marks Is en gaged In torturing the sixty or sovonty-flve lodgers in the Judson apartment house In Washington square just now. It has been at the work for the past two weeks. Back of tho Judson. fronting on West Third etreot Is a large tenement house, and tho parrot belongs to a family living on one of tho middle floors of the building. The bird Booms to be dying to talk, but to have no one to teach It to do so. Its coco stands on the back Are es cape by day, and tho only sounds it hears to Imitate are the whines and barks of a pet dog belonging to the same family. These sounds the bird has got down very fine, cspooitlly the shrioks, whloh are of the rasping, blood curdling type. Dog and parrot battle continually at bark ing and shrieking and whining. But it is at dinner time and on the qulotof the Sabbath. the boarders In the Judson say, that the noise Is the most terrible. Some of tho boarders have determined that tho parrot must go, others are considering tho proprloty of petitioning the Board of Health in tho matter, and still another party, it is said, aro loading up with bootjacks and the like for next Sunday. Inquiry at 87 Third street, which Is the ten ement back of tho Judson. doveloped the fact that it family namod Shields, who live in tho second floor roar room, own the parrot Tim family wore all out of town laBt night except the parrot That intelligent bird answered the reportor's knock at tho door with a disoordnnt shriek, followed up by a vollor of sounds that compritod all the distinguishing vocal char acteristics of that neighborhood. The other lodgers In tho house at 87 Third street are nover disturbed by tho parrot whloh thoy say Is a woll-behavod bird. He never swears, but on tho contrary, he is rollglously inclined. Some of tho people in the tonemont declare that they havo heard him try to sing hymnson Sun day, which day ho seoms to recognize as being out of the ordinary. This is probably the rea son that tho lodgers at the Judson complain particularly of the noise on Sundays. The tenoment people all are on tho parrot's side. DIED OF A MOSQUITO BITE. Tbe Stlns Foleoaed Kenuy'a Blood and the JnBaraneatloa Killed Him. Peter Kenny died yesterday, at Bellovue Hospital, of what he believed waa a mosquito ilte. It wasn't a Jersey mosquito either, so far at he knew, but just one of the ordinary Harlem kind. Kenny was GO years old, and had raised a family, but for some nlme he had been living apart from them at the Empire lodging house. 2.2G0 Third avonue. About ten days ago something bit him on theoheek. It made a swelling like that of some ordinary bug. and he rubbed and seratched it The next day tho swelling was bigger and mors inflamed. On the morning of the third day it was eo bad that Kenny got alarmed and went to the Harlem Hospital. The doctors save him a lotion and asiurod him he was all right or at least nearly so. They were mistaken. The blto got worse and worso, and when he went back to got re lief they sent him to Beiievuo. Ho was uncon scious when he got there, hut the next day lis got a little better and told Dr. Van Loan about the mosquito. The inflammation finally ex tended to tho tissues surrounding the brain and produoed meningitis. That killed him. About three years ago another putlent died In Bellevue of a. mosquito bite. COURT HOUSE AND RECORDS BURNED. Culmination of a Jtons Tight for the Coonty Beat In Charles Coonty, II d. Foot Tobacco. MJ.. Aug. 4. Tho Court House, which Is ono of the oldost buildings in the State, was fired early this morning and complotely destroyed, togother with the county records nnd papors. many of which woro very valuable. The fire was the work of an incendiary, and Is tho culmination of a fight of years' standing. Port To bacco is the county neat of Charles county, nnd repeated efforts have been made to effect a transfer to La Plata, which Is a most thriving town. Tho county divided into two factions and carried the light to the Legisla ture. An act making tho change was passod in 1800 and vetoed by the Governor. Again in 1RS2 an act was passed, submitting the question to the people of tho county, and it wns defeatod by a large majority. Determined to ootnpol a change, one of the T.a Plata faction set llro to the Court House in the hope that the eounty would accept a new building In La Plata, built at the expense of tho residents of that place, rather than build another at the county's nxneuse. A bit ter feeling now prevails, nnd If the incendiary Is caught he will be lynched. DOCK WAlt ON BTATEN ISLAND.

REBELLION AOAINST THE MACBINE. Brodaky IXeaVe that the Z.eft-ont Repakll ean Districts will Orsenlxe. It was so warm ovor on the east side last night that many of the members of the John A. Logan Club came to the monthly meeting In their shirt sleovos. Theodora F. Ruhle pre sided, but John Everywhere Brodsky. who had come down from his Harlem home, tat 3n his left hand and conducted affairs. After the members had been notified that the Treasurer was there for the sole purpose of receiving duet Mr. Brodsky made a speech. He said that tho club was not getting along with tbe rapid ity he liked to see. and he askod the members to hustle. Mr. Brodsky, Sam Engol. Chairman Ruble, and Frank J. Martin were made a com mittee to call on Mr. Whltalaw Raid and notify him thattho club had done itself the honor of naming a battery nftor him. Chairman Rubin announced that Chairman Hackett of the Republican Stato Campaign Committee hnd been Informed thatthoifriends of tho club who lost their places in the Federal departments through tho connivance of Leader Bchurmunn had not yet been reinstated. Ao cordincto Mr. Ruhle. Chairman Hackett ap peared tolbe vory much astonished at this. "What I not yet?" hois said to have asked. " Not yet" the committee solemnly informed him. Then he It alleged to havo said with great earnestness: " Well, they have got to be and we will look into the matter Immediately." The members cheered this information. After tho meeting was over Mr. Brodsky told tho reporter: " I have reason to believe that the Republicans who were formerly members of tho organization In the old Nineteenth and Twenty-third dlstriots. andlto whom n repre sentation in the County and L'xooutlvo Com mittees hns been denied by the County Com mittee, have rosolved to organize thomselves. They are determined not to lie oontrolled by organizations in alien districts, and will build up Independent organisations of their own. If this in done it will cause trouble and put the county machine In nn unenviable posi tion. Patterson's scheme to makn no change is a bnd one. and tho evils that will result from it will be far-reaching. A prominent Repub lican told me to-day that he feared the Polloe Board would refuso to recognize our Inspectors of election, on the ground that we have no or ganisation in six districts. Unless there is a thorough reorganization of tho machine we will lose this State in Novombor." OROANIZINO INDEPENDENTLY.

Orrrepliod that he did not divulge private conversations, and added that Gov. Tillman knew tho statemont was true, ns he could as certain by appealing to tho proachers in Gen eral. The Governor said tbatsomotimes an oath slipped out but that it had dono so on only one occasion during tho campaign, and he appealed to the ladies pretont to signify if, in their opinion, they oonslderod him "a black guard."

Aug. 4.-From the indica tions to-night every mombsr of tho House and Senate will be in his soat when tho extra ses sion of tho Leglslaturo contones at noon to morrow. Both parties are at sea concerning the programme to be followod. The Republican and. Domooratlo Btnte Cen tral Committees have prepared apportionment acts, and as the Democrats have a majority in both Houses tho latter will nvontually bo passed, although the evident purpose of the Republicans to filibuster may prolong the session sevural days. The Democrats havo rejected the Republican plan of holding a conference for the nurpoBo of reaching an agreoment as to the bills to be submitted.. They nay thoy aro able to present eminently just bills without nsslstarico, and thoy will do so.

Ther Disable the Knglao with Jlynamlte, Blow Open tho Boor of the Express Car, Secure StO.OOO, and Xecape Without a Hunt Belnc Balecd to Prevent Them Thei Men Supposed to be the Bnme IVho lluve Taken Part In All the Successful, Trntn Robberlen In that Heellon of Cali fornia la the Past Two Tears, Ban Fhikcisco, Aug. 4. Tho fifth bold train robbery in tho San Jonquln Valley in threo years occurred early this morning near tho small station of Collls, fifteen miles from Frosno. Thoro woro only the robbers, and their method ot procodure wan precisely as In tho previous cases, exoept that thoy had a free field for work. -' Thoy showed that thoy woro exports, and alter rapidly broaklnc In the express car door with dynamite bombs thoy secured betwoen $ in, 000 and $20,000, jumped into n wagon, and struck off across tho plains. Although tho detectives were on tholr trail in a few hours, there is small prospeot of their cap ture, as they selected one ot tho lonellost places on tho line, and they showed such knowlodge of tho country that there Is no doubt thoy belong near Fresno. As the train was pulling out of Collls just after midnight the engineer and fireman were surprised by seeing two men appear on the tender nnd cover them with shotguns, at the Bnme tlmo telling them to obey their ordors undor ponalty ot death. When the trntn passed Rollndo station the engineer was ordorod to stop, and tho robbers touched off the f uso ot a drnamlto cartridge, which thoy placed on tho piston of tho driving wheel ot tho locomotive. Tho explosion was terrific breaking the piston rod and partially dis abling the engine. Tho robbers ordorod tho engineer to get off the train and walk a short distanco along the track, while they proeeeded to bombard the two doors ot the express car by exploding dynamite cartridges. The robbers, masked and completely dis guised, ontorod tho express oar, and covering Louis Roborts. the messenger, with double barrelled shotguns, ordered htm to open Wells, Fargo .t Co.'s safe. RobertB set about doing tills, but was so excited and nervous that ho forgot tho com bination, and so informed his captors who thoroupon struck him a heavy blow on the bond with a gun. and threatonod to kill him if ho did not immediately open the sato. With trembling hands he did so. and thoy took out the sacks of coin. When the dosperadoos exploded the first cartrldgo on the engine the passengers poked their heads out of the windows to see what was going on. but they drew them back when they felt pistol bullets and buckshot whistling past their oars. Thero was a panic and the passengers made a wild scramble under the soats to keep out of range ot the flying missiles. Tho explosion ot the bombs employod to wreck the express car rocked and shook the train with all the force ot a violent earth quake. A window in front of the passongor coach immediately boslde the express car was shattered by tho concussion. For twenty-five minutes the train was held, but only one passenger attempted to interfere with the robbors. and nB he was armed only with a small rovolver he Boon retired from the unequal oontest The express safe contained three bags ot coin, each, it Is supposed, hold ing $5,000. These tbo robbors forced tho engineer and fireman to carry to a wagon whloh tbey had hitched by the side of tho road. When the coin wus thrown under the seat tho two masked men jumped In. ordered tho fireman and engi neer to return to thoir train, and doparted on the trot toward Fresno. When the train reaohod Fresno the railroad hands wre still greatly exolted. The express mosscnger sustained a severe scalp wound nnd a fracture of one ot the ribs. When the door was blown opon he was hurled against tho roof of the car by the power ot tho explo sion. William Lewis, the fireman, told the clearest story. He said: " We were about six miles east of Collls whon the enclnoer, Al Phlpps. and I saw two man crawling toward us over tho wator tank. They were heavily armed. Eaoh hnd a revolver in ids bolt and a tdiotgun banging from a strap around hl-t hod)-. 'Hold up your engine, damn you 1' cried ono ot thorn, and the other man ordered us to hold upour hands. " Both woro pointing revolvers nt us, and we did as wo wero told. Aftor wo were stopped wo wero ordered to get off the cab, and were told that wo would not be harmed if wo did as thoy ordered us. The robbers tlrbn gavo each of us a clgnr, and told us to smoke" " Did you sraoko?" " You bet we did. The englnoer wns thon or dered to put out the headlight and to go ahead about a qusrtor of a mile and wait He did so. They mado mo get undor the gang plnnk, nnd thon llrcd sot oral shots in order. I suppose, to kocp anybody In the cars from venturing out ., . ,. " Tho robbers then left the engine and went to tho express car. I dld'nt hear them nsk tho mossengor to open the door. So far as I know thoy hogan throwing bombs nt tho car us soon as they got there, losing no time In pnrlnving. I saw only two robbers. "After oponlng tho safe and taking the treas ure thoy came down tothe engine with it 'Come out,' said one of thorn, and I came. They ordered mo to help them carry tho money snmo dlhtnnce down the track, and hit me on tho shoulder with the butt end ot their guns, to emphnsl7o It 1 had to obey, and oar ried one of tho bugs. Aftor walking several bundled yards they Mopped, took the money from me. and made off. Before leaving they placed a bomb on ono ot the bars of the left side of the nngiue, nnd exploded it by lighting tho fuse with a cigar. The bomb did consider able damage, and it took us nearly two hours to repair tho damages no that wo oould pro ceed. " I can't clvo a description of tho robbers, beeauert tholr faces were entirely hidden from tiaw. The inaxks wero ulade from some light cloth. Thoy wore dark clothos, and ono had a wldo-brlmmed hnt and the othor a narrow brimmed one. Thoy wero very determined, mid talked ui if they meant buslnoss nnd would fctaud no fooling, so we did as we were The engineer told substantially the same story. Sumo of tho passengers gota good vlow of tlm robbers. Nowton Brown, n deputy sherltl of Suubernardlno oounty, was on tho Uli'on the train stopped and the firing oc curred, he is roportod to have jumped off the rnrnladonly in his pajamas. Ho stnrtod to gu ahead, carrying a levolver in his hand, but turned hack on boiug fired upon. Ha con cluded dlxcretlon wns the better part ot valor. One of tho robbers wore an apron with a largo pouch, which bulged out with ammuni tion nnd dynaiuito cartridges. Both wore heavily armed, and those passengers who saw thorn woro Immediately oonvlnoed that train robbers are pooplo whom it it unwise to die- Tho Wells-Fargo main office wlros were kept hot to-day. Tho company learned that tho wagon which bore tlio stolen money was tracked nearly to Irosno, wbero the trail was lost Tho dotocllvos believe that the rob bers live In the vicinity, nnd that tluty are the same men who are responsible flt tho heavy robberies within the last two years. In this tlmo Southern, Paolflo trains havo been stopped and locked at Plxloy, Gosheu, Allla, and Ceres, all within 100 miles of enrh ot her. This country Is ns level as a barn floor, mid is very sparsely settled. For miles no houses aro soon; and at the desolate hills of Fresno and Tulare counties aro only about ttvonty miles away, it furnishes an Ideal plnoe for train robbery, In none of these robberies huvntho criminals oter been Interferred with while at work, and in only one rase wero any suspeoted poraons captured. This was in the Gosheni robbery, for which twoot the Dalton brothers wero held, but one escaped on an nllbi, and the other broke jail and reached In dian Territory.

THE SCRUTINY OF MARS. Nothing; Startling;, So Tar, Added to Oar Knowledge of the Planet. ViKKNA, Aug. 4. Assistant Astronomor Hil dobrand says that careful observations of the planet Mart were made from the night of July 30 to that ot Aug. 2. inoluslt e. by Horr Pallsa, tho olilof assistant astronomor, and himself. Owing to tho proximity of tho plonot to the southern horizon, however, the result ot the observations was unsatisfactory. Tho prog ress of the planet waswatchod for an hour. At a point fifty-two degrees above tho hor Izon snow fields could bo soen distinctly ex tending thirty degrees from Mars' south pole. Immediately underneath this patch three large, dark groups wero observable. "Perhaps." tho astronomer added, "thoyare continent like those or our earth. The haze whioh enveloped the lower port of Mars, how over, renderod aocurate observation impossi ble. The north polo and the equator wore completely obscured." Cincinnati. Aug. 4. Prof. Portor of the Cin cinnati Observatory said this morning that a gross orror had beon mado by American astronomers as to the opposition of Mnrs. The American ephomeris. tho standard nau tical almanac, hns undoubtedly misguidod tho astronomers of the nation, but tho lirrlinir Jahrbuch gives tho time of our opposition with the red plnnct as clearly as possiblo at a little after midnight.
