Bnrnes of Pleas ant Valley Dellrers an Address Family Can Trace Its Ancestry Far Back Many Members Present. The annual reunion of the Barnes Family association was held at tho Saven Rock theater yesterday morning. The meeting began at 10 o'clock. Re ports of the secretary and treasurer were read, which showed the associa tion, to , be on. a good, financial basis. President Thomal C, Barnes of Pleasant Valley made an address of welcome to the members present. Rep resentatives from many states were present. The president in his speech outlined the genealogy of the family. He traced the line of descent through the Puritan fathers and through the English stock through the coming of William the Cqnquerer. When William the Conqueror . came to England in 1068 A. D. there came with him a North man, De Burner, by name, and from him sprang the Barnes stock. The name of the family at that time was De Burnu. Later when the Saxon and Norman languages intermingled It was changed to Barnes and Baron. The genealogy of the family has revealed from 60,000 to 70,000 Barnes in the Unit ed States, which is but a part of tho family in England and other European countries. "There is hardly a county In the United States," declared the president, "that has not a Barnes family in it." The American branch of the family sprang from Jonathan Barnes and his son, John, who came to America in 163J. A committee was appointed at the reunion to select the next year's offi cers, a president, secretary, and chair man. The committee was Sheldon B. Thorpe, chairman; Vincent Barnes and Edward Barnes. About 100 members attended, the members coming from many states of the Union. REV. DR. MEANS DINED. Has a Birthday In Mldocean on the Carmania. The Rev.

Hubbard of Wallingford have returned from Brat tleboro, Vt. KENNEDY IS REINSTATED BY CONNECTICUT LEAGUE BASE BALL DIRECTORS. Every Team But New London pre sented First Bridgeport vs. Watcr lmry Game Goes to Former Second Must be Played Over New Ilaven vs. Wnterbury Protests Go Over "Cy Miller Restored to Standing. The managers of the Connecticut league baseball teams held a lengthy session at the Garde hotel last evening. Thoie present were Secretary J. H. O'Hourke of Bridgeport, C. J. Danaher of New Haven, C. C. Clerkin of Hart ford, J. J. Madsen of Holyoke, Daniel O'Neil of Springfield, John TIghe of Norwich and Harry R. Durant of Wa terbury. Every team was represented except New London. ; The protested games first came up for consideration. By a unanimous vote of the directors the protest by Hartford of the New Haven-Hartford game of July 28 was dropped. In the two pro tested games of Bridgeport vs. Water bury of August 13 the first game was given to Bridgeport and the second was ordered played over. The two New Haven-AVaterbury games of June 13 and July 6 respective ly, which were protested, received con siderable attention. The first was a Sunday game and was played in Wa terl'oury. The New Haven players were given to understand before they left this city that it was to be an exmm tion. Manager Danaher of New Haxen and Official Scorer Peet testified to this effect before the directors. Waterbury who won, now claims that the game should be counted. To offset this claim New Haven asked that the July 6 game, which was played as an exhibition dur ing the Merlden centennial, and won by New Haven, should be counted. The directors did not decide these ques tions last night, but put them over to another meeting. Section 45 of the rules was amended to read "Three actual days' notice shall be given an opposing team where a double header Is to !be played." The rule formerly required four days' notice. "Cy" Miller of Springfield, who was blacklisted through a mistake of the league secretary, has been restored to his former standing. Through the kindness of Secretary Cavanaugh of the Southern league and a vote of the directors Umpire Charles Kennedy has been reinstated. MACK AND THE CANNON. Johnny to be Shot Out Again nt White City This Afternoon. Things are growing livelier and live lier at the White City as the season goes on. The unprecedented carnival of ballooning by Prof. Flower's company of aeronauts is attracting widespread attention. Again yesterday Johnny Mack attempted the triple drop but only succeeded in making a double. He used the hoodoo red parachute and it again failed to open. He would not have done this had it hot been for the fact that the new one ordered by Prof. Flower did not arrive and rather than disappoint the public Mack determined that he would take a chance with the red one once more. The 7,000 specta tors did not complain that he failed to get In thjee drops. As they saw some thing they probably may not see again in a life time and that a man falling through space for over half a mile. This afternoon Mack will be shot out of the cannon and the triple drop will be tried again Saturday afternoon when the now red parachute 1b expected. To-night in addition to the iballoon ascension and searchlight a brilliant display of fireworks will be given. AT THE THEATER. Cunningham and Smith's vaudeville show has captured the public this week. It's a rare one. THE UN It EST IN RUSSIA. Boy Throws Bomb Into Warsaw Re ligious Procession. Warsaw, Aug. 16. A boy throw a bomb at 9 o'clock this morning Into a procession which was passing through Cholodna street on its return from a pilgrimage to the shrine of the holy virgin at Rokltno, near Warsaw, wounding two of tho processionists, The explosion attracted a patrol of in fantry, who without warning fired a volley, wounding thirty persons. A band of revolutionists to-day at tacked a government alcohol store and shot and killed a clerk and wounde two other persons. The ban tried to rob the cash drawer. A patrol of In fantry surrounded the house and the revolutionists fired from the windows, but all of them were arrested. London, Aug. 17. The Tribune's War saw correspondent telegraphs a de scription of the pitiful scenes witness ed by him after the disturbances Wed nesday. "The hospital surgeons, fatigued by their labors," he says, "we una'ble to attend to cases, and wounds diagnosed as fatal were left to take their course. "The scenes in the morgues were hor. rible. In one I counted seventy-two civilian bodies, all dirty and dressed as they fell. ' "The people have grown callous with too much death. I was shocked to hear a young girl laugh heartily at the sight of a woman whose brain-pan had been torn oft by a bomb. "In one hospital I saw a youth who, when bayonetted yesterday (Wednes day) feigned death. The soldiers trod over him and their heavy boots crush ed his fingers to pulp, but he success fully stood the ordeai. He was carried to the morgue when it was discovered that he was alive. He is now progress ing favorably. I "Last night resulted in an orgie of Wood in the Jewish quarter. Tho num. I ber of persons clubbed or bayonetted ' exceeds 300." Rprlin. Aug. 116. A dispatch tr the Vcssiche Zeit'ing from Warsaw dated yesterday give aeiaus or yesterday's rioting. The dispatch says: "The disturbance was due to tse de- termination of the revolutionists to re venge the arrest of 140 workmen of an enameled ware factory. The firing be gan at 10 o'clock In the morning in va rious parts of the city, as if by con certed signal. The first shots were fired by a young Hebrew, who killed a soldior and a policeman and then fled Into a shop. A soldier pursued the man and fired, killing the woman who kept the shop. In many places the military fired on the crowds Indiscriminately and the exact number of killed has not yet been ascertained. Bodies picked up in the streets continue to be brought to the morgue in Theodore street, which is guarded by troops. Many of the wounded conceal themselves because the soldiers arrest all wounded per sons. Strong patrols of twenty to fifty cavalrymen are riding through the streets, searching passersby for arms. The streets in the Jewish quarter are deserted because the military patrols knock down with the butts of their rifles everybody they meet. "A bomb was thrown at 2 o'clock in the afternoon into the windows of the police station, wounding seventeen po licemen and twenty passersby. Nobody was killed. "It is characteristic of the panicky condition of the soldiery that when the corps arrived on the scene of the shoot ing, the soldiers leveled their rifles at the physicians, inteding to kill them, but a police official present saved the doctors' lives." St. Petersburg, Aug. 16. Dispatches from Penza, the capital of the prov ince of the same name, and located at the junction of the Sura and Volga rivers, report the arrest of another member of the late parliament, . M. Vragoff, under circumstances quite as compromising as those in the Onipko case, Vragoff being charged with com.- puuuy in trie murder of Lieutenant Petroff of the rural police, a'nd the wounding 0f a sergeant of the same force. After the return of Vvrv . , laguiL from St. Petersburg agralan disorders 'uruKe out at the village of Kamenko, in which Petroff, who attempted to quell the disturbances, was killed. Upon the arrival of the governor and military, Deputy Vragoff and the other ringleaders I Penza, and the villaee Driest moved and confined in tho monastery. Agrarian disorders in another district of tho province of Penza led to an en counted between the populace and Cos sacks, In which one peasant was . killed and several were wounded.

Peters burg bourse reports the purchase of 30, nftrt 'K.ifuiA -a j ... 01 giaia hi vtermany ror Russian delivery the first time in the history of the bourse that suoh a thing has occurred. It Is explained that ow ing to the enhancement of the price of grain it is cheaper at the coast ports to buy abroad than In the Interior. Conditions are aggravated . by trans portation conditions, the nature of which Is showh by an order of tho min ister of railways permitting for the first .time the loading of grain trains at night. LYNCHED WITHIN SHADOW OF HIS VICTIM'S HOME (Continued from First Page.) The negro was captured In a creek, tied hand and foot and brought to the home of his victim for Identification. Miss Brooks, lying on her bed with a deep gash in her throat, turned her eyes toward the negro. "That's the scoun drel," she said. "I know him by his eyes." The negro was removed outside the house. "Hear the governor," said someone. The governor began, In his clair voice, a most Impassioned appeal. "I know," he said, "that nothing could take place that could keep you from hearing tho governor of South Carolina." The crowd applauded. "I come hero alone," he cpntlnuei, "not bringing any troops. Only two newspaper men came with me, and they, as well as I, are South Carolinians, just as you are, with like feelings. You are my friends. Hera I am, not alone as your governor, but as your friend. "But it is my duty to enforce the laws of South Carolina. Don't cheer, men; this is a solemn occasion and I am very much in earnest, and, besides, I under stand It excites the ladies, and this is a consideration that appeals to all South Carolinians. (The Brooks residence was only forty feet away.) I come to appeal to your manhood. The question is, Shall the people be allowed to be ruled by their passions and prejudices, or shall the supremacy and majesty of the law be upheld? I promise you on my honor that a speedy trial, as the law allows, shall be held. I would not object to cutting the rope to hang that scoundrel, provided the law said so." A few yards away stood the dazed prisoner, and men stood close about him with rifles and shotguns in their hands. "I am here alone," went on the gov ernor, "but I represent the majesty of the law; I represent the state of South Carolina, your state and mine, and I say to you, I beg you, I Implore you, in God's name, don't put another stain upon our fair state. I plead with you to let the law take its course. You have an opportunity here a splendid oppor tunityto let it be said that South Car olina leads in this matter. Let us rea son together. I feel just as you do. I have lived In the country and realize the dangers to which our women are constantly exposed, but there is some thing higher than the wreaking of ven geance on that black devil and fiend of hell. You won't enjoy it to-morrow when you look upon it all." Here the men came up to the stand and said: "We appreciate what you say, but we are not going to do it. We have stood this thing long enough." Many shouted for the governoi to go on, and he concluded his fruitless ap peal to prevent the lynching. Tlie gov ernor witnessed the spectacle from a distance. MYLETTO AT VOLCANO.
