The strike committee has announced that the str.kers will not accept these terms. The strikers held another large meeting in Hyde park yesterday. The proceedings were orderly. Mr. Burns.in a speech,declared it was a mistake to suppose that he had agreed to the proposal of the arbitrators. He invited the strik ers to declare whether or not they would accept the proposal. A loud shout of "No" went op from the crowd. Mr. Burns, continuing, said the strike committee were prepared to hold ont for three weeks more, but be believed the directors of the dock companies would concede the strikers' terms before another week had passed. Mr. Tillet visited the lord mayor last evening and proposed new terms to commence in Octo ber. The lord mayor demurred, but promised to use his best endeavors to persuade the dock directors to agree to the terms. ?

Mahon. all of whom have just been adjudged guilty of murder and .entenced for life to the Kentucky penitentiary. These men are members of the Hatfield faction, and were tried for killing Richard Tolbert and Randolph McCoy in the farnoua mountain feud between these parties not long ago. Of the four Alex. Messer will be taken to Frankfort at once to serve out his sentence, while the others will re main at Lexington in Uil for the present until their cases can be taken before the court of appeals, they having been granted a stay of proceeding* for sixty days. Of the other mem bers of this faction Eliaen Mounts has just been sentenced to be hanged December 3, while Sam Mahon and Clias. Gillespie are vet to be tried they being now confined ia the Pike countv jail charged with the same offense. ALexmston dispatch to the New York Her aid Saturday savs: The conviction of the men virtually puts an end to the famous vendetta which wa* probably the most notorious of Kentucky * mountain wars, as out of it grew the famous habeas corpus proceedings which threatened at one time to strain the friendlv relations existing between W?*t Virginia an j t s "tate.

Old Ocean Makes It Unpleasant for Guest* at tbe Seaside. A tidal wave that swept on the beach at the resorts along the Long Island and New Jersey coasts yesterday afternoon caused great con sternation. At Rockaway Beach the ware came about 4:30 o'clock in the afternoon, rolled 70 feet np the beach and broke over two or three thousand persons, men, women and children, who were on the sands. It came without warn ing and, though a rush was made for shelter, few escaped being drenched. In receding the ware carried a number of women and children some distance with it, but fortunately all were saved. A large number of small buildings, stands. Ac., were washed away. At Atlantic City an unusually high tide raged along the beach front about 7 o'clock, doing considerable damage. About 200 feet of Jackson's bath-house parilion, at the foot of Virginia avenue, was entirely destroyed, and tho debris washing against the supports of the bath houses, weakened the structure consid ernbly. Mrs. Ayers of Philadelphia, was on the walk watching the havoc being wrought by the sea, when an extraordinary wave broke over the board walk, drenching the crowd and creating a panic, during which she was forced over the railing into the surf below. Jamer Alberts, the pedestrian, and A. L. Craven, a silk merchant of Philadelphia, a guest at the Seaside house, plunged into the water and rescued her from her perilous position, clinging to a post, which she haii tho presence of mind to seize. Beyond nervous prostration Mrs. Ayres suffered no se rious injuries. A section of the board walk in front of the Tramore was destroyed and tho water flooded the street, compelling the guosts of the Wind sor and Traymore hotels to leave bv the rear entrance or use carriages. The bullwark in front of Disston villa also suffered severely. At Sea Isle City. N.J., while the sea was run ning high Benedict Blunschei, a Philadelphia voung man, was drowned and three young ladies from the same city narrowly escaped a like fate while bathing. Blunscbei.was carried beyond his depth by a tremendous undertow. The body has not been recovered. The young ladies were brought ashore in an exhausted condition by two young men. At Coney Island many small booths and piers were carried away. Three men were drowned bv the capsizing of their row boat in the heavy surf off Kockawav Beach during the afternoon. Another boat containing tour men capsized and the mtn were saved with great difficulty. WINSTON AND THE SHAH. He Accepted Four Elephants and Went the Shah One Better. From the St. Louis Republican. The revival of tho rage about the shah of Persia has led to a story on Fred Winston of Chicago, who for a short time represented the United States at the Persian court. When he arrived at Teheran he was met outside of the city by the chamberlain of the court, who, in the name of the shah, presented him with four elephants. Winston, who had never seen an e,ephaut outside of a menagerie, was paralyzed at his situation, but managed to express his thanks for the shah's kindness. After he had been presented and had assumed the duties of his office his greatest official burden was the care of his elephants. Relief came on the second day. when the intimation was politely conveyed that the shah expected a present from him. said Winston, as a smile wreathed his face. "I have only been wait ing to secure one worthy of so great a ruler." That afternoon he proceeded in state to the palace and presented the shah with five ele phants. The chamberlain seemed to regard the animals with suspicion, but Oriental polite ness prevents the inspection of a gift horse in the mouth, and anyhow the extra elephant re moved all doubt. '?That extra elephant cost me flOO," said Winston, iu telling the storv afterward. '-But 1 considered myself getting out of a bad scrape cheap at that" * A HARD FIGHT WITH A BEAR. Hunter Peter Markle Kills Bruin After A Desperate Struggle. A Kingston. N.Y., special to the Philadel phia Pre*s. September 7, says: News comes from Samsonville, this couuty, of a desperate struggle for life with a bear near that place yesterday. Peter B. Markle left liis home early in the morning to go to Ellenville. He was accompanied by his daughter, twelve years old. and hij dog. The journey was through woods and over mountains. When crossing the mount tin the dog, which had been run ning leisurely alongside of the wagon, rushed into a clump of woods and soon began to bark. Markle knew that the animal had sighted some game. He jumped from the wagon, rifle in hand, and ran into the thicket He had hardly got out of sight before he heard the scream's of his child, whom he hud left seated in the wagon. "A bear! a bear!" she shouted at the too of her voice. * Hastening back Markle found a large bear treed by the dog. It was about twenty feet from tho ground. A terrific battle then ensued between man, dog and bear. The bear had seized tbe dog as soon as it recovered from the shock of the fall to the ground, and the canine was soon howling with pain from huge gashes iu its body made by the shaggv brute. Bruin then turned his attention to Markle. His huge paws were auickly imbedded in the man's flesh and his clothes were torn from his bodv. With the butt of a revolver, Markle succeeded iu stunning the bear with many repeated blows on the head. Two bullets at short ran?e Pieroed a vital spot and settled the fight Markle put the bear in his wagon and took It to Lllenville. It weighed over 300 pounds, llarkle is the son of an old soldier ana a bear hunter and he has himself captured more than a score of bears in the forests of Ulster and Sullivan counties. A TWO MILLION DOLLAR FIRE. A Large Brooklyn Refinery Destroyed and Se\-eral Men Hurt. A disastrous fire broke out Saturday morning in the mammoth sugar plant of Dick, Meyer A Co. on North 7th and North 8th streets, in Williamsburg. The fire started with an ex plosion, the exact cause of which is not known. It is supposed to have been caused by the ex plosive nature of finely powdered particles of sugar which had permeated the air in the mills where the granulated sugar was reduced to the powdered product There were three mills at work reducing the granulated sugar to the finely powdered article. The entire estab lishment, which consisted of a collection of buildings eight stories in height, extending about 400 feet on North 7th street, 300 feet on North Hth street and 250 feet ulong the dock, was reduced to a mass of ruius. It was filled with verv valuable machinery and the loss on tne building* and machinery is estimated at about $1,500,000. Within the building were 1,700 barrels of sugar valued at about half a makiQS ? total loss of about ez.uuu.uuu I hero were a number of men in Lu,reJ b7, the explosion or burned by the fire. The mills employed about 200 men, who will be thrown out of employment. A Tidal Wave of Counterfeits. From the Pt?il?Jelphi? Record. Atlantic City has been flooded with spurious ten-dollar bills during the summer and many have found their way to this city. Their presence has been discovered by a special ex pert of the Treasury department, who has been for some time trying to traoe the counterfeiters. P-i*te ha* neTer been captured, although the lreasury detectives have been searching for it everywhere.

Harrisburg special to the New York Sun ?y?: After a dozen or more experiments in this city with the Brown-Seqnsrd elixir it* effects hare at last proved fatal to one of the city hospital patient*. All the teste which have been made here were upon persons who ap plied at the hospital. Among those who ap plied was John Barth, an old and highly es teemed citizen of this place. For five years he has been a sufferer from a complication of diseases. Long ago he was compelled to give up a lucrative business on account of ill health, and he was gradually growing more feeble. Several timet within the last four years his physicians and friends have given him up as hopelessly ill, but each time he rallied, became a little stronger and was able to take short walks. It was during o?e of these spells of convales cence about a mouth ago that he determined to apply at the hospital for an injection of the elixir of life. The first injection was mnde and its its good results astonished him. On his way home he was heard to remark that he felt like a young man again, and his glee gratified his iriendg. A few days ago he visited the hospital a second time and the experiment was rei>eatecL ? 5 8 time Mr. Barth felt invigorated.but it did not last long. He went home and took to his bed, and a short time afterward he became unconscious. At the end of forty-eight hours he died. He suffered great pain before he be came unconscious, and during the last few hours of his sickness his skiu turned a deep P"ow color. After he died the color changed to a black, and even in ice his body could not be preserved longer than two days. Yesterday he was buried. A VILLI ANGUS PLOT. A Man Said to Have Been Lynched to In sure His Silence. A special from Wheeling, W. Va., says: In vestigations by the grand jury in Fayette county, this state, have brought to light a fiendish plot. About a month ago a white man named Charles W est was waylaid and butchered by Bill luruer, a worthless negro who had been a criminal all his life. West was a prominent citizen and a committee of regulators lynched Turner. Curiosity about the motive for West's murder was aroused and rumors of a statement that Turner had made just before he was strung up became so numerous that the grand jury, then in session, took cognizance of them and began an investigation. One of the lynchers, John West, a cousin of the murdered man. was summoned, and during his examination broke down and made the following remarkable confession: "Charles West was politically obnoxious to a num ? 5^ persons of Fayette county and they determined to have him removed. He was too prominent a man to be killed without ex ciliug n searching examination, which mi'-jht prove unpleasant for his murderer, and lie could not be provoked to a quarrel, in which he i might be shot in self dcfence. The plotters were in a dilemma and held several conferences. At lust they hit upon the plan of hiring Turner to do the deed and then lynching him before he had a chance to implicate them, thus destroy ing all trace of tlieir guilt." West was killed and lurner was lynched, but before thev could strangle their hired bravo he let fall" a few words that gave a clue to the officers cf the law. The investigation has notbeeu concluded, but those concerned in the plot are known and will be indicted at once. Three of them have become alarmed and have left the vicinity, abandoning their property, but the rest are being shudowed by deputy sheriffs and will bo arrested if they attempt to go out of the county. HIGH LICENSE IN BALTIMORE. Some Interesting Points from the Re port of the Grand Jury. In their report the grand jury of Baltimore Saturday recommended some radical changes in the existing law. In the first place they J recommend a high license law similar to that in Boston. The report asks for a license of $1,000 with a provision prohibiting the selling of liquor between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m. It says: -'If the legislature will give us a high license law and extend the jurisdiction of the police magistrates the grand jury will be relieved of ono-lialf of its present work and will have time for more important investi gations." The report also says: "There is but little difficulty in enforcing the law against gambling in the grosser forms. We are assured by those who ought to know, for instance, that for two months there has been no game of faro played in this city, but we found numerous so-called social clubs, pro tected by charters from the courts, where the most insidious sort ot gambling seems to be in cessant. In order to suppress these resorts there mast be some change in the law, and we earnestly recommend that the courts be allowed to exercise their discretion in granting such charters and have tho power summarily to re voke them when it appears that thev are abused. We also advise some change in the law so that the various pool rooms now open in this city may be closed." Leaving a Large Estate to the Public. A New Haven (Sept. 7) special to the New York Tribune says: Mrs. Ellen M. Gifford died at her home in this city this forenoon. By her death $600,000 will come into the possession of city and state institutions. She was the only surviving heir of Phillip Morett, a Frenchman who came to this city in 1864 from Boston. He died in lfckjtf, leaving a fortune of over *700,000 in trust to his wife and daughter, to be divided at the death of the last surviving heir as follows One-filth to the Connecticut hospital society the income to be used for keeping free beds' one-fifth to the city of New Haven, the income to be used for the indigent, aged and infirm persons, not paupers; one-fifth to Yale college the income to be used for scholarships in the academical department; one-tenth to the Now Haven orphan asylum, one-tenth to St. Francis orphan asylum, one-tenth to the city of New Haven for books for the Young Men's institute or any other public library, and one-tenth to to the state of Connecticut, to be used for the support of an institution for idiots and imbe ciles. Mann and Mrs. Swlnton Held. Josh Mai>n, the lover of Mrs. Kay Hamilton, and his mother, Mrs. Swinton. were Saturday held in New York in ?1,500 bail each for the action of the grand jury. Heiress to a Missing Legacy. An interesting story comes from Chicago. 8ome days ago Chief of Police Hubbard re ceived a request from Dr. J. H. Brewer of Sioux City, Iowa, for the full names and ad dresses of all the Adamses in Chicago. About twenty years ago a man named Andrews eloped with Miss Viola Adams, the daughter of a wealthy resident of Chicago. The father cast his daughter off. The youug husband soon be gan to treat his wife harshly r.nd finally she left him and returned to her father, bringing her baby daughter with her. Subsequently the child was stolen and all efforts to find her were unavailing. The grandfather left the missing child a legacy of *40,000. It now appears that she was stolen by her father, who placed her I? ? famlly of ? Norwegian named Nelson, in lies Monies. Iowa, where she grew up as their daughter. Kecentiy Dr.'Brewer discovered the tacts in the case and secured a confession from the father, who had been plaving the rolo of a friend of the Nelson family. * It was his inten tion to tske the girl to Chicago and secure the legacv for himself. The young ladv is now with Dr. Brewer s ft.milv in Sioux City aud the doctor is endeavoring to find her Chicago reia The Duel Did Not Take Place.

This is conspicuously true of all nlsssst of new*, but especially so la regard to Local News and District Affklrs. THE STAR has a very much LARGE! and RKTTER force of LOCAL RE PORTERS and SPECIAL WRITERS than any other paper la Washington ever thought of employing, aad ITS MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT AND PRIXTIXG FACILITIES ARE MORI THAX THREE TIMES AS POWER FUL AXD RAPID AS THOSE OF ANT OTHER WASBIXGTOX PAPER. It to therefore able to print each day a full report of ever)- transaction of publle in terest occurring In the District up M the very hour of going to press. Dy the free use of the OCEAN CABLES for REUULAR AXD SPECIAL DIS PATCHES, and a lth the difference of time In Its favor, It Is also able to givu its readers every afternoon the news of the WHOLE EASTERX HEM1SPHERB for the entire day, and up to 12 o'clock midnight, thus leaving literally nothing In the way of news trom Europe, Asia* and Africa for the morning papers. Equally does THE STAR lead all Ita contemporaries in the publication of the NEWS OF OCR OWX COUNTRY. Receiving the regular dispatches of both Xews Associations; with alert aad enterprising special telegraphic cor respondents at all Important points; and with wires leading directly from Its owa office to the general network of telegraph system touching every city, town and hamlet in the United States and Terri tories, it is enabled to receive aad print at once a full report of every mit of consequence occurring during the day anywhere between the Atlantic aad Pa cific Oceans. CT NOTE THE RESULT: j| THE STAR HAS MORE THAR THREE TIMES AS MANY REGULAR SUBSCRIBERS and MORE THAR FIVE T1MKS AS MAXY REGULAR READERS AS ANY OTHER DAILY PAPER IN WASHINGTON. It ts de livered regularly by careful carriers at the HOMES OF THE PEOPLE, AFTER THE BUSTLE AND WORRY OF TBB SAY ARE OVER, and It U thus read leisurely and thoroughly by EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY. They know that It prints all the news, and has only the interests of the people of the District In view, with no partisan measures to advocate, and no private schemes to forward. They know it, in short, to be THE PEOPLE'S PAPER, and nothing else. As an ADVERTISING MEDIUM it to, therefore, ABSO LUTELY WITHOUT A RIVAL. It to In fact worth more as a means of reach ing the publio THAN ALL THB OTHER DAILY PAPERS IN THB CITY TOGETHER. Furthermore, In proportion to the re turns it gives its patrons, ITS ADVER TISING RATES ARE THE CHEAPEST IN THE CITY. In conclusion, the public should bi? In mind this one significant fact: THB STAR does not rely upon empty bonatt to Impress the public. ITS CIRCULA TION IS SWORN TO; Its PRESS ROOM IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC; and Its BOOKS MAY BE INSPECTED by any one having an Interest in their examination. These are CRUCIAL TESTS, which lew papers invite, and which those that boast as oat are lonat able to stand. B* The esteem In which TBB STAB Is held by the reading aad public Is conclusively shown by I ures given below. In the first six months of ' five years named the average culation of the paper was: In 1SS5 22,507 " 1SS6 24,882 ? 1887 25,702 44 1888 27,068 " 1888 80,241 Equally significant Is regard to the the paper, which to thoi of its acknowledged value as a i of publicity.
