The yollow-fever baa broken out at Forrest
Uity, Arkansas. Yhen it is remembered that
Aha governor of that State proclaimed quar
antine as soon an the first case occurred here,
and that shotgun rquads and cavalry pickets
have been guarding the rivera and railroads,
it is hardly probable that the Arkansas cases
can be traced to Memphis.
The heavy death list of yenterday should
prove a warning to any of Our people who
havo contemplated returning to their homes
before the announcement that such a move
ment is safe. Thirteen deaths from yellow
fever occurred in Memphis and its suburbs
yesterday. While none of these victims were
returned refugees, there are several of that
class now very ill. At the earliest moment
when they can return without danger, ab
sentees will b informed of the fact.

8ical to tlie i ppeaU
Columbus, O., October 14. Indications
are that the heaviest vote ever known in the
State has been polled. In these dispatches
statements of losses and gains will be based
upon tho vots for secretary of state in IS73,
when the Republicans carried the State by
3000 majority.
Columbus, October 14. Tho election to
day passed off quietly. A large vote was
polled, and at the western precincts an im
mense number of vest-pocket tickets were
voted. The Nationals in soma of their strong
holds abandoned their ticket, and while those
who had formerly been Republicans voted
for Foster, those who had formerly affiliated
with the Deruocrata voted for Ewing.
C M. Davenport, who claims to belong in
Cincinnati, was arrested, charged with re
peating. It will probably be quite late before the re
sult on the State ticket can bo known, and

in this city and county was probably the
largest in its history. A number of business
men were at the polls the greater part of the
day. The returns are coming in very slowly,
not one-5fth of the voto being yet known. If
these Republican gains reported continue,
the Republican majority in t he county will be

Hew York. October 10. The police of
Orango, New Jereey, having heard that John
Meierhofl'er, a prosperous German farmer
living just out ot town, had been murdered,
went tq his house just before midnight last
night and found tbo dead man's wife and
Frank Laturuoua sleeping together in tbe
bed the but band had occupied. In the cellar
they found the corpse of the farmer, sitting
with one arm clasped around an upright post.
The head was bent down upon- the breast.
The head and clothes were saturated with
blood, and a bullet-hole was in the skull.
The cellar stairs were covered with blood.
The woman is plump and comely, and about
thirty-five years old. The dead man
was fifty-eight. The paramour is a good
looking young man. According to the story
of these two persons, tbe man was killed
early in tbe morning, and bis body was not
disturbed until the police came. Each then
aid that the other killed the man. The
woman's story is that Lammonscame to them
three months airo. and asked to be permitted
to live there and do work 00 the farm. lie
said he was in need. They took him in, and,
said Mrs. Meierholi'er. "I became very fond
of him. lie and the eld man quarreled.

bim to do. At niifht o'clock yesterday morn
ing he and my husband had more words, and
mv husband called him a loater and ordered
him away from the place, but be refused to
go. lie came into the hounet and said he
would shoot the head olf the old man. lie
had a big revolver in his hand. He waited un
til the eld man started to go down into the
cellar with a loid of potatoes on his back,
aud when he got near the bottom fired. Ihe
old man fell on his lace, and tbe blood spurt
ed all over the floor. Frank pulled the body
to one side and then came up stairs." "Why

after the murder?" atked it policeman. "Be
cause I could nothi-lu u:Ni-lf," sho answered
".Besides." she continued, "the police only
ay I slept with biui that doesn t make it
out that I did." Frank's story was that he
miarreled with the old man in the morning.
and the woman took up against her husband
and took the quarrel upon heiselt. feus got
the revolver and killed him in the same man
nor that she describes bim us doing it. The
conclusion reached bv the police is that the

Denver, October I.-Ttie following was
received by Governor Pitkin to-d.aj:
Lak Citt, Colorado, October 10, 1879.
to Governor Pitkin;
Reliable news comes from the Los Finos
agency that Sapavanevis, one of the most re
liable sub-chiefs who was Bent by Ouray to
Whito river agency, after news of tho fight
had been received by Ouray, returned frotu
Milk river yesterday, at elevea o'clock. He
reports that he saw tbx white men and wo
men at Whta liver agency in charge of Chipf
Douglas; also one of the emplpyes rho was
present when tho Indians caue the attack
upon the agency. This man killed one In
dian anY Wounded another. Sapavanevis
thinks that three or four more employes
are alive, as their tracks were seen around
the agency building, and they may have fled
to the woods. Father Meeker was kiMed.
The report as given in the papers that bapav
aneris and Shavano took part in the fight is
ontrue, and it is also not sure that Chief
Douglas led the White river Utes. Ouray
thinks Jack, a White river Ute, commanded
the Indians m the charge on Thornburgh'b
command. lenden.
latest from merritt.
Rawlins, Wt., October. Lieutenants
Burke and Sjbuyler arrived here this morn
ing with the latest authentic reports of the
doings of General Merritt and command since
their march to the front. On the afternoon
of the day he reached Captain Payne's camp
he bad a fight with the Indians, and had to
move his camp abont oaB mile from Payne's
old position that night on account of the fear
ful stench created by dead animals. Merritt
moved npon tbe agency, and reached there
Saturday. The Indians are retreating south
ward, and it is expected that in small bauds
they will drop into various agencies, and,
thus covering np themselves, it will never be
known wbo Were the warriors who opened
fire onThornburgh. The dismounted compa
nies and wounded will be here in seven days.
Bear River, Col., October 11. Indian
reports, brought in from tbe agency by Los
Pinos Utes, say that thirty-seven Indians
were killed during the fight ot September
29:h and siege until October 6th, the date of
General Meiritt's arrival.
A visit to Trig to THE agency.
Fort RaWlinos, Wy., October 13. Emil
Webber and George Fuha, two couriers, have
just arrived from what was, a few days ago,
A nita river agency. From them I learn the
following particulars of General Merritt's ad
vance upon tbe agency on the eleventh: On
his way he found many dead bodies; among
others the bodies of Carl Goldstein, an Israel
ite, who left here with government supplies
for the Utes at White river agency. He was
found in a gulch six miles this side of the
agency, shot twice through the shoulder, two
miles from his wagons. A teamster named
Julius Moore, formeily from Bainbridge,
Massachusetts, who was with him when he
left here, was found about one hundred yards
from Goldstein, two bullet holes in his breast
and his body hacked and mutilated. As the
command advanced through the canon, they
came to an old coal mine. - In it was found
the dead body of a man named Dusser. He
had evidently been wounded and crawled in
the mine to die. His coat was folded up and
E laced under his head for a pillow. Beside
im lay a Winchester rifle and eight cart
ridges. In one of his pockets a letter was
found, which, as near as the courier can re
member, was as follows:
Whitk River, September 291 o'clock.
Major Thombargh:
I will come with Chief Douglas and an
other chief, and meet you to-morrow. Every
thing quiet here. We have been on guard
three nicrhts and will bo to-night, not that we
expect any trouble, but because thero might
be. Did you have any trouble coming
through? Can yon. n. c. meeker.
United states Indian Agent.
On entering the agency, a scene of great
desolation presented itselt. All the buildings,
excepting one, were burned to tho ground,
and not a living thing was in sight, except
the command. The Indians had taken every
thing except the flour and decamped. The
women and children were missing, and noth
ing whatever could be found to indicate what
became of them. Tcey either have been mur
dered and buried, or else taken away as hos
tages. Their dreadful fate calls forth the
most profound sympathy. The dead body of
Father Meeker was lound about a hundred
yards from his house lying on his back, shot
through the head, the left side of his head
mashed in pieces, a barrel-stave driven into
his mouth, and one of his hands and arms
badly burned. Tho body of Mr. Post, Father
Meeker s assistant, was found between the
building and the river, a bullet-hole through
the lett ear and one under the ear. He and
Father Meeker were stripped entirely naked.
Another employe named cotton was tound
dead and stripped naked, and a bundle of
paper bags in his arms, his face badly eaten
by wolves and a bullet hole in the lett breast.
Frank Dresser, brother to the man tound in
the coal mino, was found badly burned. He
had without doubt been killed instantly, as
the bullet passed through his heart. The
bodies of Eaton, Thompson, Price, Eakridg?,
and all other employes not named, were
found. Eskridge was found two miles this
side of the agency, naked and a bullet hole
through the head, la the position occupied
by the Indians during Thornburgh's battle, in
breastwork made ot stone, was lound tne
dead body of an unknown white man, sitting
on his knees, his gun in position to fire. He
was Bhot through the forehead. t rom this
it appears the Indians are not alone in their
hellish work. The supposition is that the
Indians have gone south to join the southern
Utes. and the impression among tbe othcers
of Merritt's command is that the Indians
who fought Ihornburgh numbered at least
seven hundred.
Washington, October 13. The following
is tne communication trom Agent Manley,
which led to the action taken by General
Sherman and Secretary Schurz:
Los Pimos Aokhct, October 9. 1879.
To the Commissioners of Indian Affairs, Washing'
EmployeBrady and an escort of Indians
arrived from White river. The Utes recog
nized and obeyed Ouray s order, withdrew
and will hint no more unless torced to do so.
It tne soldiers are now stopped trouble can
be avoided by the peace commission to inves
tigate the offenses, and let the blame rest
where it may. This will save life, expense
and distress, if it can be accomplished.
Later; 1:30 p.m. A runner just trom the
southern Ute agency with - a letter from the
acrent Bays a eeneral council has been held.
Tne Utes will obey Ouray's request, will stay
at home and take no part in the White river
I concur in tbe above.
OURAY, Head CUlet et Utes.
colonel merritt.
Chicago. October 13. Colonel Merritt tel
cgrapbs tbe military headquarters, under date
ot uctober 11th, substantially as follows:
'This morning I moved down the river to a
point near White river agency. The cavalry
have been out all day in different directions,
looking lor Indians, and report that the trails
led southerly to the Grand river. I have lit
tle doubt the Indians have gone to Uncom
pagna iigency. I expect Gilbert and Henry
to-morrow, and will then move toward Grand
river, leaving a guard behind. I have buried
seven bodies, including Agent Meeker and
three on the road. I am entirely in doubt
regarding the force the hostiles can muster.
It is clearly ascertained that the Unita In
diaris joined the Utes before the Thorn burgh
fight. It the orders are to go to the south
ern agency ana ngnt wnat we meet, 1 snail
be glad to carry tnem out, but nope tne in
structions will not be delayed." Colonel
Merritt regrets the great amount of military
supplies sold tbebO Indians by ranchmen
Denver (Col.) Tribute: "Ouray, the head
chief of the Utt-s at the Uncompngna, is an
Indian of remarkable ability. He has made
two visits to Washington, and, seeing the
power aud immense number of the whites,
baa tiecome in every sense of the word a
peaceable Indian. He lives in a house, culti
vates some Bixty acres or ground, has a large
flock ot sheep, wears the clothing of a white
man, rides around in a covered wagon or car
riage, and has largely adopted tbe habits
and customs of civilisation. He has learned
to sign his name, and was in the habit of
sending letters direct to President Grant
stating his grievances and what he wanted.
His influence has been all powerful on the
side of peace, and that thero hoa been too col
lision between bis people and the whites is
Sntirely due to him. He is not. however, the
hereditary head c'uier, but became so some
Ye.Ci a?0 through his force of character
and tbe favor of the Indian agent,
who acknowledge him tut such. Frequent
attempts have been made to assassinate him
by the Indians themselves, especially those
pf the hereditary chieftain blood, who are
jealous of his power and dissatisfied with his
change from the!d habits and customs. The
whites iiucU dread that at some time or
other these attempts may succeed: then there
will be trouble.; there will be no restraining
force, and the Lad Indians will get control ot
tii'3 tribe. It will not be their numbers, but
the scattered character of the mining popu
lation, the numerous mountain hiding
places and the inaccessibility of tbe country
which will make them formidable enemies
and the war prottactsd fnrt efptnaiVe.
Many years atf. tho Cioui captured the son
of Or)ray while he was on a buffalo hunt on
tLe eastern plains of Colorado. The boy
then was twelve years of age and his only
child. It has been Ouray's great grief, and
as he was taken prisoner and is still living,
he has made every effort to regain Lim, but
as yet unsuccessfully. The government ought,
as he thinks to assist him and get the
boy back. Ouray last year gavo strong proof
cf his determination to keep hia people quiet
by the summary punishment of O-se paw, a
tlte medicine-chief, who was, if possible, even
more restless and troublesome than Colorow.
He was constantly travebn Prod the White
river agency t? the southern Ute country, ex
citing all the Utes and endeavoring to get
them to join him in an attack upon the whites,
claiming that they had been defrauded by the
Brunot treaty, and the whites ought not to be
allowed to remain in the Sun Juan country.
Ouray saw that he was getting quite a strong
patty on his side, and so to stop the trouble,
after an angry controversy, as he was leaving
the council, in the act of mounting his horse,
O-se paw was shot dead by order of Ouray."
A Brief History or the Fanloaa Pern.
' Vlan ftaa, the Alabama or the
South American War.
New York World: "The Huascar has been
engaged in the most important naval warfare
which has occurred since the Kearsarge sank
the Alabama, tor the naval conflicts between
France and Germany in 1870-71 were limited
to two or three trivial encounters. The ves
sel and her exploits have been fully described
in the World, but it may be again mentioned
that she was built in Eagland, and is a tur
reted ram, carrying two three-hundred pound
Parrott guns in her turret. In the summer
of 1877 siie was taken possession of by a
revolutionary party under Pierola. Having
been declared a pirate by the regular Peru
vian government, Bhe was engaged by the
British war-ships Shah and Amethyst, from
three o'clock in the afternoon until dark at a
short-range duel, with but little effect on
either side. In the darkness the Huascar re
treated and was subsequently surrendered to
the regular government. Under Captain, now
Admiral Grau, she has borne the brunt of the
present war with Chili, especially since the
Pilcomayo, which may be said to be almost
the only other vessel in the Peruvian navy of
any value, ran on a reef during a battle and
sank. At Iquique the Huascar sank the Chil
ian wooden ship Esmeralda, the name of
which commemorated Lord Cochrane's great
exploit at Valparaiso. Captain Pratt, of the
Esmeralda, was killed while making a gal
lant attempt to board' the ram. Off Antafo
gasta she captured the Chilian tranepsrt
Rimac with two hundred and forty dragoons,
thirty thousand pesos in coin and a cargo of
supplies for the army. She also engaged
without very positive results the Cnilian iron
clad Blanco Eucalada and tbe corvette Ma?
allanes, besides capturing many launches and
merchantmen, bom barding Antafogasta, sink
ing a pontoon arsensal, making up two or
three raids along tbe Chilian coast, and
breaking up the Chilian blockade of Iquiqie.
As the armies on land cannot get at each
other on account of the deBevt which lies be
tween them, and as the Peruvians have no
navy to speak of left to meet the compara
tively fine squadrons of the Chilians, it is dif
ficult to see how the war can last much

Milwaukee, October 13. At eight o'clock
to-night, while a switch-engine in the yards
of the Chicago and Milwaukee railway was
switching, they started to cross the Burn barn-
slip bridge to the west side. . The fog was so
thick that it was lmpossioie to Bee due a iew
feet, and the engineer did not discover until
a few feet from it that the bridge was turned
for a passing vessel. Ihe engine and a car
E lunged into the river, ine engineer ana
reman jumped trom the engine. The
former, Lea Kutter, was picked up out of the
river, probably fatally injured; the latter es- ,
caped with severe bruises about the legs,
while llarry tun, a telegrapn operator, wno
was riding on the bumper of the locomotive,
was buried under the debris and crushed into
an unrecognizable mass. Mike Toohey, a
switchman, was also on the engine, but
jumped and escaped uninjured. The loss to
the railroad is about twenty-nve inousana
dollars. Young Hill's parents reside near
Chicago. October 13. An accident occur
red this evening at Maywood, on tbe Northh
ampton road, by which two men were killed
and a number wounded. The cause was a
collision between freight and passenger trains.
Wheeling. W. Va., October 12. Passen
ger trains No. 1, going east, which lett this
city at half-past eight o'clock last evening,
and the Baltimore Express No. 10, coming
west last night on the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad, collided near Benton about halt
past ten o'clock. Both trains were running
at the rate of forty miles an hour, and were
well filled with passengers, who miraculously
escaped injury, with the exception of a little
?irl, who was slightly hurt about the face,
ames Askew, engineer, and John Smith,
fireman of train No. 1, were instantly killed,
while fireman Jasper, of train No. 10, was
seriously injured. Engineer Boylan, of train
No. 10, escaped injury by jumping from his
engine before the trains came together. A
boy named Flanagan, aged fifteen years,
who was stealing a ride, was instantly killed.
His parents live at Clarksburg, West Vir
ginia. A negro boy who was stealing his
way to Clarksburg between tbe tender and
postal car on train No. 10, was seriously
injured. George Shinn, postal clerk on train
No. 10, was seriously injured, and was taken
to bis home at Fairmount, West Virginia,
where he now lies in a critical condition.
Both engines are total wrecks, and a refrig
erator car containing butter was crushed to
pieces. The postal and baggage cars of both
trains are also total wrecks. ine accident
was caused by soma misunderstanding of tel
egraph orders. The bodies of Engineer
Askew and b ireman bmith were brought to
this city this morning and taken to their
homes. Jasper was taken to Grafton.
Beduelng the Underwood Gang,
Cincinnati, October 12. The Gazette's
special from Grayson, Kentucky, says that
Jesse Underwood was shot in the door of his
father's house, known as 1 ort Underwood,
yesterday morning. The Holbrook party
surrounded the House, threatening to kill
anybody who would dare to bury Jesse's
body, or rescue George, who is badly
wounded, and with the women and children,
all that remains of the unfortunate Under
wood family inside of the house. George to
day sent word to the county judge praying
tor help and protection. I he governor has
been appealed to. but has not responded.
This is the fifth murder within the last three
weeks in Carter county, four of the murdered
men beirg Underwoods and one a member
ol tbe Holbrook tribe, and nothing has been
done, from the governor down to the county
marshal, to check this awful bloodshed.

The Woman who Attempted to Kill
Manager Hlrkey, and Succeeded
In Killing Herself
Special to the Globe -Democrat
CiNCiNNATl.O., October 12. S. Mi Hickey,
advance agent tor Mary Anderson, was shot
in the base of the brain this afternoon at the
Burnett house. A moment afterward his as
sassin, a handsome young woman, turnea
another chamber of the fatal pistol toward
her own brain ana sent a ballet crashing
through her skull. She fell to the floor and
died in a few minutes, ihe tragedy was en
acted in the reception-room of the hotel in
the presence of nobody but the two princi
pals. All was over in less time than it bas
required to read this. The utmost excitement
followed. The tragedy of last Sunday, in
which Miss Lulu George played such a ro
mantic part, was outdone. As the facts
reached the street and circulated from mouth
to moutn, it was admittsd that a more sensa
tional attempt at murder and suicide had
never been enacted in Cincinnati. It was at
first rumored that Mary Andersen herself
had shot her agent and then killed herself.
The streets surrounding the hotel were
crowded with a throng never but once ex
ceeded in si&e, and that? was when Horace
Greeley visited Cincinnati in 1S72. The his
tory of the case is this:
Mary Anderson played a most successful
engagement last week at Tike's opera-house.
Mr. Hickey, her agent, made himselt quite
conspicuous during this time by bis mora
than friendly relations with M..is Anderson
and br stepfather. Dr. Griffin. Readers of
the G lobe-Democrat will recollect an acciunt
in Tuesday's issue of tbe attack upon John
r. fetnitb, or the lourist company by Dr.
Griffin and Mr. Hickey, in which tbe latter
two stood np side by side, Damon and Pyth
ias like. since the tragedy ot to-day and
tbe dead woman's claims of jealousy against
Mary Anderson, wise ones have been wag
ging their heads. This Nemesis came sud
denly noon the scene. Hor presence in Cin
cinnati had not been noted. Just whence
he came previous to tbe tragedy is not
known, but about half-past three o'clock she
walked into the reception-rooaiol the Burnett
house and rang lor a bell-boy. bhe sent
him, whence he came, to tbe room of Mr.
Mr. tlicsey with a message- that a lady
wished to see him in the reception-room,
giving no name. It is most likely that he
knew wbo had sent for him, tor he appeared
annoyed and muttered some curses, liow
ever, be brushed up bis his toilet and went
down Btairs.
What passed in tbe reception-room is not
known. A few minutes after Hickey entered
it, the sharp report of a pistol-shot rang
through tbe corridors, startling the clerks
and guests in the office-area. Immediately
afterward HickejV staggered out into the cor
ridor, the blood streaming from an ugly
wound in bis skull, borne gentlemen stepped
forward, when Hickey called out, "She has '
shot me; arrest her; don't let her get away;"
then be staggered and lell senseless in a gen
tleman's arms. Before anybody could recover
presence of mind a second shot sounded
trom within the reception-room, succeeded
by a heavy wall.
Ihe horrihed and astonished crowd rushed
in and found the woman lying, a ghastly ob
ject, on the floor, with the brains and blood
oozing trom a hole in her bead, while the tatal
pistol was clutched in her hand, she was
alive, but died within ten minutes. Hickey
was carried to bis room, where be soon re
gained consciousness and related what he was
willing to tell. He admitted that the girl had
been bis mistresr, and that her name was
Florence M'Donald. He met her in Syracuse
last winter. She came t his notice as a
rither f?st young woman, though not an
avowed courtesan, and he sought her out.
She became warmly enamored ot him, and
proved faithful till he grew tired of her and
tried to "shake" her. She was not one of the
kind be shaken, however, and of late hn
followed him about with a persistency worthy
a better woman, begging him , marry her.
Ihis he told her was impossible, and finally
adroit d to her that he loved Mary Anderson,
and hoped to win her for his wife. Tb:s mad
dened Miss M'Donald, and she after that fol
lowed him not as a supplicant, but ri a
Nemesis, and tbe end came t)-day. The
only clue to her bistjryor her late move
ments 1 1 be obtvned wn found in her diaiy,
which was found in her pocket, neatly kept
in a scholarly manner, since l.""t Apid. Her
great love is 1 irtrayed most tenderly, till it
runs into a mad desire for vengeance. Her
age was twenty, though soirow and sin had
aged her t3yond 1 er yep's. She we ele
gantly dressed. Her fa, 3 was plain, but her
form voluptuous. She we - educa .d at the
Buffalo onvent, and her religious tar ming
there is trt ied through a'l her die y. In one
part ol the book she has writ.n: "He would
make her (Mary Anderson) bis wife. I am
only his mistress." She r- rds how she
went to P'ke's operahouse lent Friday
night, and, uns: ju herself, sat an
watshed Hickev n be gaz;d with love
lit eye3 upon Ma.y Anderson, as "Juliet."
and how she fiere made up ber mind to kill
bim and then kill h;mself. Tbe last entry in
tbe diary w is written this morniDg, and after
passionately raving of her hopeless love con
cludes with the terrible words twice under
scored, "He has scorned me, he must die."
Uickey's physicians give little hopes of his
recovery. Mary Anderson is all but pros
trated over the terrible affair. She claims to
know nothing of Hickey's love for her, aud
says she never dreamed of such a thing. Her
chief sorrow seems to be that ber name should
be thus associated with so notorious a scandal
Investigation to-night discloses the where
abouts or Miss McDonald during her visit to
Cincinnati. She arrived in tbe city Thursday
morning, hired a bucli and drove around to
five ar six hotels inquiring lor Hickey. She
then went to tbe Russell house, on Fitth
street, and engaged lodging, stating that she
was in tne city on business with a gentleman
She bad nothing with her but a valise, and
no money but a silver quarter. On Thursday
night she went, in company with the land
lady's son, to see Mary Anderson play, and
on Friday night she went alone. This morn
ing she called at the American District tele
graph company's office, and sent a messenger
boy to tbe Burnett house with a note addressed
to Hickey, and a button-bole bouquet pinned
to it. The boy gave it to him in the barber
shop. He opened it, tore it into halves, and
threw it, with the bouquet, into the spittoon.
When the boy got back to the effice Mis
M'Donald was waiting frr an answer. When
told Low her hot?, and bouquet had been re
ceived, ehe txeiaimed: "ll right," and
walked out. When she shot liickey, botb
were silting on a sofa side by sida. She told
him she was moneyless and unable to return to
Syracuse. He said: "If that's all, I can sup
ply you." He leaned over to reach into his
pocket, when she placed the pistol back of
his ear and fired. Shouting "Murder!"
Hickey sprang to bis feet, placed his hand
over the wound and ran into the corridor,
where she fired three more shots at him, all
of which missed. Hsckey, at midnight, was
sleeping under tbs itfluence of an opiate.
