Thr submarine torp* '.o boat whioh was
Ml by John P. Holland left Nixon's
shipyard at K'.za "'thport and pro eeded
to Prince's bay. She Is being put through
a ser e«* of iritis to test her ability to
run under wafer and. white Bubmerg-*d.
to attack a vcfscl with her dynamite
guns.
For a few day* «he w 11 be ran upon
the surface untii her machinery has been
«: aken down; then she will be tried b* -
neath the surface.
The Holland w !« accomoacied down to
n point near Sandy H >ok by a to
carry supplies for h-r • rew and afford
their a "de.-ping-p'.af* Sh" wan followed
by a launch tilled with detectives.
A for* e of detective has hovered day
and r.igl't l* at the shipyards, watching
every jnovemt nt on the strange lit J I
craft wh eh is deigned to move beneath
the turf.. « of the »• a and vessels
a hundred times its size. It has not r
fj: itieW :he-.' ft-.tls yet. but It is expected
that it vuil prove it* ability to.
The boat was completed within the pa«t
week. Then the Y!x< av.-« came Into tre
harb-ir. The govemm- r.t had f illy d°"id
e-1 that If anything happened to ti;e big
S;taii <h cru.-er it trust be able to show
ti.it every f.r» - airion ha 1 been taken '9

the vessel Itself.

to r.a\ .Ka> nns-en rir.'l unheard fifty feet
under water, aarryii s thre. dynamiul
g » and enough explosive to blow up a
city.
T e p iver-rrent an interest In the
Holland, inasmuch as it intends to buy
h- rlf she prov- s a success. Th< was an
eU-ment of the ridiculous In watching her.
but the ; .imini-tratlon decided to leave
no room for reflection.
The suUmar'iic tarp do l>oaf which w.is
d»-*igta.d by John P. Holland and built
at I>wis Nixon's shipyard, wa* launched
on May 17 of last year, and at that time
attracted world-wide attention. It was
then expect, d tha* she would bp tried by
the md of June, bur a series of several
slight aecld.rsts occurred which delayed
her completion. and then, when she had
marie st verul runs en the surface, it was
found advisable to make several changes
In her construction.
The work h s occtipied the past st*
months. 4)w'::g to th. daiigerous charac
ter of the work for which she was de
sltrr.i d. every d<'t. il had to be thoroughly
gone over that she might be perfect.

IX THE RKAI.M OF • SPIRITS."
\\ «n. R. Smith Tells m Magistrate His
Ksperlenrr at Several Seance*.
Philadelphia Ledger.
Hugh R. Moore professes to be a spirit
ual milium. William K. Smith, of <1219
Lancaster avenue, who says he attended
three seances held by Moore. had doubts
a - to the spirit* that appeared bring other
tnan flesh ami bone like ordinary mortal?.
These doubt- Uvame so strong as to leud
S,Tilth to a practical demonstration of the
real fait< by catching hold of one of the
"spirits" at a seance held February 11,
on Seventh street, below <>re*n, and hold
ing on. despite the cries and entreaties of
the "spirit." until lights were turned on
AIK! an Investigation made.
Prior to the seance on February 11 Smith
and several friends had attended two oth
er s»»nces given by Moore. One was on
January 31 and the second February 7.
It was on these visits. Smith says, that he
b.-< ame suspicious of the claims made by
Moore that he could produce the spirits
of the dead, so that Smith could converse
with his departed friend*. He accordingly
went before Magistrate (Jeorge W. Kvans
and procured a warrant for the arrest of
Moore. Accompanied bv a constable and
• deputy, they attended the third seance
of the series. The result was thai Mr.
Mooie was arraigned before Magistrate
Evans yesterday morning, but the hearing
was not completed, and was udjuuriied un
til this morning.
The only witness examined yesterday
was complainant Smith. He testified in
substance that he hail heard of the seances
eivtn by Moore and had attended three of
them. On the occasion of his last visit,
he said. Moore explained the formation of
spirit* stating that they were made up of
atoms of matter, the same as human be
ings. and that this accounted for the spir
it* having the same temperature as the
persons in the room, it was also explained
that some .spirits did not have sufficient
strength to form so that they could be
re> ognized. Moure, he said did not guar
antee to any one in the audience that his
or her friends wuuld appear, but when one
or more spiriis presented themselves,
Moore would tell som? certain ones that
"so and so was present in spirit" and
wished to speak to the party called by
Moore Among the "spirits" thus appear
ing were those of Jenny Lind. the famous
singer, and I .Hit. the composer.
According to Smith's testimony, the end
of the room was partitioned off by a bla< k
curtain, forming a separat* room, the
eides. floor and ceilings of which were
covered with black material. This room
wa« railed the ~ab!net Ua> kof it was a
door which, Moore said at the opening of
the seance. Mould be boarded if there Were
any objections. The door was saiii to ><*
I • kej with IT extra padlock, the keys
of which were placed on a piano in full
view of those pr» sent.
The ■ urtaln was tlropp«Hl at:J .ill lights

the c • t>!n<• t. there wis singing. and music
was hoard from the piano ai d a music
bux. S>ime of the forms came outside the
cabinet and sat In the room. One of them
kis«ed the man at the piano. As to the
lamp used, it was stated that some spirits
could stand more light than others. At
times the room was very dark
Those In the audience were cautioned not
to touch the spirits, but to permit the
latter to touch whomsoever they pleased.
N*ut all the spirits wt re supposed to be fe
males. 1 :t all of them were representa
! tive "spirits of the dead." One was a
j biuk-fa. td spirit with bright eyes. An
other one wore .1 veil. Smith said tn his
I te.-timony that he tame in close contact
with two of the spirits and recognized
them as beii K earthly. «P;e of these
spirits is claimed to be "Dr. J. L." None
, of them could stay long, as ttiey rom
; plained of being wnK when engaged In
any lengthy conversation. They said this
when many questions were put to them.
At tiie seance on February 11. Smith
testified, Moore came to him and took him

Smith, ' and took hold of bath hinds of

IX>N"DOX, March 9—A special dispatch
from Bombay say* that a riot broke out
at noon among the low custe Hindoos and
Mohammedans against Europeans. "*
The trouble aiose through a plazue
party in.julrirg into the cause of the .<»< 'K
ness of a Mohammedan woman. An enor
mous crowd of castetnen gathered .".,1
stoned an-.l mobbed the jKirty, wh:i h re
tired for an escort of police, and then re
turned and re-demanded the surrender of
the patient, which was refused. A pcirsee
mag.strate who exhorted the populate no;
to resist the police was himself struck,
whereupon he ordered the police to
charge. They did so. and four Moham
medans were killed and several wounded.
The disturbance spread with alarming
rapidity, until the whole quarter around
the Bhendi bazaar presented a spectacle
similar to that of the riots of The
Mohammedans, who were joined by the
Hindoos, assaulted every European and
Eurasian they met. and a hysterical mob
attacked the European dwellings in the
suburbs of Byoellau. The residents bar
ricaded themselves in their houses and
fired blank cartridges from their windows,
which drove ;he rioters off.
In the meantime troops were hurried to
the scene, and a body of artillery is now
patrolling the Bhendi bazaar.
Thti outbreak was specially directed
against Christians. It is rumored that
two European soldiers were nearly killed,
but it is difficult to obtain correct de
tails.
The excitement has partially subsided
this evening, but the situation is «till re
garded as serious. Cavalry has been or
dered from Poonah to assist in patrolling
the streets, and the volunteers have been
called out. The city is in the hands of
tho military.
The two members of the Shropshire reg
iments who wore killed were walking un
armed. The mob battered in their skulls.
Many European officers and many po
licemen were roughly handled and severe
ly injured. In several Instances Europe
ans who were traversing the native sec
tion of the town alone were beaten or
stabbed. Some were dangerously Injured.
In various parts of the city plague am
bulances were seized and burned. At
tempts were made to burn the hospitals
and the European nurses had narrow es
capes. Finally they were escorted to a
place of safety by the troojv*. The mob
attacked the Jam*»tjee hospital, and badly
wounded Mr. Gillespie, the house surgeon,
but was repulsed by rifle volleys. Sev
eral of the riotors were killed.
The total losses of the rioters are yet
unknown, but the outbreak is regarded at
the most alarming that haa occurred ill
India in many yearn.
