A Horrible Gallows Scene.
three unsuccessful attempts to hanoan !
english murderer.
London, February 23.?One of the most sin- <
guiar incidents ever connected with the execution,
or attempted execution, of a murderer, '
happened to-day at Exeter, on the occasion for !
carrying out the death sentence passed upon 1 j
John Lee, who was recently condemned to be hanged
lor the murder of his employer, Miss :
Emma A. W. Keyes, at Baljbacombe, on No- ?
yember loth last. Three attempts were made i
to execute Lee, but each attempt proved futile, i
the drop failing to work successfully. The ex- j
ecution was consequently postponed.
London, February 23.?The details of the <
futile attempts to hang Lee, make the case the 1
most horrible that ever disgraced the gibbet in j
England. At first Lee was perfectly firm and i
went to the 6cafl"old undainted. When the first 1
attempt to hang him failed, the prisoner's
spirit remained unbroken. He was led from
under the sallows and walked back to his cell .
with a firm step. When lie was made to realize j '
that the gibbet had not done its work and that !
he was not yet hanged, he appcard to start, as ' 1
if from a nightmare. ,
The machinery was examined, and the wood I
work was found wet and swollen, so that the
spring and trap would not move quickly and I
smoothly. The machinery was then oilea and
moved until tlie officials were convinced that it '
was In perfect condition. Lee was again brought
out, stood firmly upon the trap, and when the
spring clicked he seemed again to drop in perfect
physical surrender. But the machine again,
refhsed to do its work.
The victim shuddered, as if shaking himself
out of some horrible dream, and the executioner
pounded the framework and stamped
upon the trap, but the .trap would not move.
Lee was a second time removed to his ceil, his
spirit very much broken.
A third time the machinery was overhauled
and adjusted, a third time was it pronounced
all right, aud a third time was the murderer
led out and noosed and black-capped. The
spring was again touched, and again it refused
to operate. The strain of suspense had uow
overtaxed Lee. He sank down in a swoon and
had to be carrid away from tlie place.
No words can give an adequate idea of the
painfulness of the scene. A kind of overpowering
dismay, like that of superstition, seemed to
ihsure-! got control of the sheriff's officers. The
ieulloWH was deserted aud no one made any
>ta?rp attempts to put it in working order.

Territory special says the House bill giving the
United States courts jurisdiction over the five

Territory in cases of debts on contract or torts
committed upon the personal property of any
person In or out of the nation has created a
widespread feeling of alarm in the territory.
The measure is bitterly denouueed, aud de,
clared to be In open violation of existing treacles
which guarantee to the tribes the regulation
of their domestic affairs. Inasmuch as the bill
reiJioves civil actions from the local courts It
threatens to destroy their whole judiciary system,

gen.buller'sskirmish withthe arabs.? '
i In the skirmish between Gen. Buller's forces
and the Arabs at Abu-Klea, on the 17th Inst.,
the Joss of the British was three killed and
twenty-one wounded. The honors of the day
fell to Maj. Wardrop, who, with thirteen men.
stole -cautiously round the enemy's right and
I found they had only a few hundred riflemen on
the hills and no reserve spearmen. Maj. Wardrop
and his men sent volleys at a range of 800
1 yards otf the enemy's flank. Leaving one man
at this point to continue the firing, he took the
I twelve others and as quickly as possible pursued
the same tactics at three successive hills,
giving the Arabs the impression that flesh
bodies of British troops were arriving. The
Mabdi's forces became panic-stricken, ceased

THE TITLE TO TlftK FL4TN.
A Report on the Kidnell and Other
Claims Submitted to the Menate. !<?
Vether with a Bill to Kettle the *4ue-?tions
at I sane.
In the Senate to-day Mr. Ingalts, from the (
Judiciary committee, submitted back the res.v |
lutlon of Mr. Aldrlch inquiring in regard to |
the claims of Kidwell and others tot hr Potomac i
flats. The report was accompanied by a bill
which Mr. iugalls gave notice be would
call up to-morrow. The report sets forth i
that In the oommlttee'sopinion an inquiry int>
the subject is extremely desirable. The situation
of the question, as' reported by the com- i
mittee. Is condensed as bllowe By an net of
Congress of July 19, 17v0. .1st congress, 2 i
session,i the United States accepted the territory
now comprising the District of ('olnmbbt
with tbat on the south sideof the potomac.. i l
by Virginia, as the seat oftheg.?\. rnni. ;.t u;.1. r I
the Constitution, and provided >so r ?r a> it j
respects the present District of Oolumb i.
that the laws of Maryland should continue j
In force until Congress should otherwise j
provide. The act of definitive cession l y the
Maryland legislature Is quoted, giving t:>-' j
boundaries.and the laying out of the c,t\ by the ;
Conimissioners is cited. The r? i>ort s .% s:
"The commit toe Is of opinion that the .
above-mentioned boundaries of this city d:d, :
under the circumstances. extend down t n- '
ter of Eastern branch to the main channel of
the Potomac aud up the m tin channel o; tii.- :
Potomac to the mouth of l{??ck creek, and up '
the center of Rock ere. k to the standing point
of the survey of the city, no that the Potomac J
flats, so called, as they are und?*r?t<<1 b\ the :
committee to exist, could fall within the limits j
of the city of Washington."
In the year 1SH9 Congress passed a law pr<v
viding that the acts ol the stab of Marv land { -r
securing titles to vacant land should beeoiMdercd
in force and executed as n-gards iamb n
the county ot" Washington and without the 1
limits of the city of Washington bv the Secretary
of the Treasury, through the tGeneral l^and
Office, and provided for regulations, <ye., by the
Secretary of the Treasury; and provid'd further,
'"that any land which may have 1 e.-n
ceded to or acquired by the United States tor
public purposes should not be ailtcted by su. it
aets%''
Tho laws of Maryland supposed to have been
put in force by the last-mentioned and prcvit,s
acts of Congress were those of Novcml?< r.
1781. chapter 2?>,the loth - etio-i of wh n provided
"that either of the treasurers mav giant i
orders ortltlingsto the register of the land
oflioe of their respective shares tor common
warrants to take up vacant, uncultivated land,
or for special warrants to take up cultivate i or
improved vacant land, on th payment i
of three shillings and six pence current
menoy per acre.** Th- hfstorr
of the private claim, called the Kidwell claim, ;
to a part of these Potomac tiat> ap|?ears. in
the papers herewith marked A. Tin- exhibit
includes copies of all the pai?er* r? lat ing to the
claim transmitted by the Sccretnrv of the
Interior.) The re|>ort continues, - ft will be
seen that the act of Congress excluded land in i
the city, and the proviso excluded frt.ni its j
operation any land which had been d- d i t itacquired
by the United states ior public purposes.
it apj?ears from the tort going that
three questions will arise.
First. Whethef ttie l'otornnc fiats are within
the city of Washington. It thev are, there w ill
be an end to the lv id well patent. If they aic
notSecond.
Whether the riverfront was not ced.-1
to and acquired by the United states for public
purpfiscs. If this question l>e answer .1 in the ,
aflirmative, the Kidwell patent is invalid; and
it not?
Third. Whether the Kidwell patent applied to |
property within the true intent and iiv ini! - uf '
the land acts of Maryland and of the regulations
of the Secretary of the Treasury on the
subject. This will depend upon whether the
Kidwell patent was locatid u| on what m iv in
general terms be styled agricultural land. This,
of course, is a question ol fact. All theintV rm- |
ation the committee now lias tends
to show that tiie area embraced
:n the Kidwell patent was not the
kind of land covered by tiie Maryland act. if
thiss turn out to be so, the patent will l>eluvalid
for this reason, ltesides the < laini under
the Kidwell patent, the Ciiesapeake and < <lii<i
Canal company has informed the committee !
that it claims riparian aud iterhaps ot her rights
within the territory lefemdU'. How tar such
claim is well founded the Committee l:a.s not
had time to consider. It appears, from a - ;-.rt
of the Secretary of War. that up to f< hr:iarv
1st, 18s5, the sum <?f ? had be.'u
expended on the improvement ot the fiats, and
there still remains appropriated for these purposes
the sum of $453,330.22. It apjKars that j
the only steps so far taken under the provisions '
of the act requiring the Attorney General to
examine all claims of title to the i
premises, aud to see that the righ's <t
the government in all resj>ects are -ecure l
and protected, and if ncessary to bri::g si,its ;
against claimants to set aside any ill> . | <t improper
patents have been that on the uoth of j
Jkinuary 18s5, tiie Attorney General direct i
the district attorney tor the Disti ,ct to briim a
suit to set aside the Kidwell patent, under i
which direction no steps have so far been taken.
In this state of things the committee recommends
the passage of the bill herewith imported.
The bill reported provides as follows:
It is made the duty of th. AUortM v (:, i, ra|
to institute, as soon as may be, in the 1 .is; i i :
Supreme Court, a suit against all personv and
corporations wlio may have <>r pivn nd to ha\ .any
right, title, claim or interest in any part of
the land or water iu the District of Columbia
within the limits of the city of Washington or
exterior n> such limits, und in fr >nt then- i
towards tne channel of the i'otoiuac and composing
any part of the land or wat? r atr. et. d

purpose of making clear tl e right ot tie- i . it. i
States thereto. This suit shad *>e in the natui
of a bill in equity, and a<l paiti.s or corporations

claim or right to the land or wat. rslu.ll be nm
parties detendaut. Oil the tiling oi hu.-b t-ili
process shall issue and Ik- served according to
the ordinary course of the c< >urt up-?n ali j rsons

claim within the Jurisdiction of the court, and
public notice, by advertisement iu twoj ij
of Washington, shall be given for three week
successively of the pending of the suit, aud
citing all persons interested to appear a:.d i
forth their claims. The cause shall proceed
with all practicable expedition, aud t ie court
shall have power and jurisdiction by its deer, edetertnine
every quest ion of right," title, interest
or claim arising iu the prenus-s, and to
vacate, annul, set aside or confirm any claim of
any character, and its decree sh.ill be tinal and
conclusive; and ail persons aud corp.rations
who shall fail to apixar and set lortli
their claim, after such notice, shall be
forever barred from asserting such claim.
If upon the flual bearing the >upreine t "our;
shall be of opinion that there exists any ri_ht,
title or interest in the land or water, in any p.
son ot corporation adverse to the complete and
paramount rights of the United States, the
court shall forthwith proceed to ascertain the
value of any such right, title, interest or chum
exclusive of the value of any improvements to
the property# and may decree the just \ alue to
the person or corporation entitled thereto;
whereupon all such right, title, etc., of such person
or corporation shall vest in the United
States, ana the value of such person's right i
shall be then paid out of the treasury, '^he
right of appeal to the United States Supreme
Court is allowed, and in ease of such apjK-al the
Attorney General is to move that the < a use be
advanced on the docket! Until the final
determination of these questions no moneys aj?proprlated
for the improvement shall be expended
exoept for the improvement of navigation.
The exhibits Included the paper* of the Kidwell
claim, a letter of the C. and o. canal <-ompany
claiming riparian rights from Kasby s
Point to 17th street, the report of moneys expended
on the flats improvement, and an order
