Story of Suffering Told by Two Fishermen. Their Signals of Distress Ignored by Steamers. They Are Without Food and Water for 192 Hours. Finally After Utter Exhaustion They Are Picked Up by a Ship and Taken to Liverpool. By the Associated Pr ;ss. Halifax, Nova Scotia, Sept. 29. One hundred and ninety-two hours in an open dory on the Atlantic without food or water, is the kernel of a terrible story of suffering told by Allen Ange and Boliel Marie today. They were fishermen on the French schooner, L. S. B and lost eight of their vessel on August 23, when she was about 100 miles from St. Johns. The fishermen knew they must be in the track of ocean steamers and arranged to keep in the vicinity as well as possible. They slept and watched by turns, A large fiBh basket was hung over the stern to keep the sea from breaking aboard. All the" fog had cleared away on August 29, and not a sail could be seen on the vast sweep of water until about dark on the SLst. A large British steamer with a black and red funnel passed, bound west. Ange and Marie cried lustily for help. They shouted, waved their hands and raised their oars. They could see people on the steamer loosing over the rail at them. The big boat kept on irs way, paying no notice to the -signals 'of distress from the dory. On September 8 another westbound steamer with a funnel painted black. blue and yellow, passed in the morning. A third boat with the same style of funnel went by in the afternoon, and a fourth in the night of the same day. Ange says all four vessels saw their signals foi help and ignored tbem. , A bark passed the. castaways in the dory on the morning of September 4 in easy ranee of them, but took no notice. That was the fifth inhuman incident of that kind. Ange and Marie began to lose hope. Up to the 4th inet. hunger had not assailed them. They had vitality enough to withstand the deprivation of food for a more extended period if necessary, but thirst began to assume the mastery. The sun's rays, says Ange, fell upon their heads like streams of fire. Marie lost control of himself. He dipped up salt water in a fog horn and drank that. Again and again he drank. Ange endeavoring to dissuade him, but he said his friend turned on him like a snarling doe. The salt water made Marie delirious. He waved his arms and sang and laughed demoniacally. Several times he tried to jump overbard, but Ange re- strained him. Marie finally grew com atose and reposed in the bottom of the dory. Ange was himself so terribly ex hausted at this time that he does not know what prevented him from jump ing overboard and ending his suffer ings. On September 5 both men were lightheaded and suffering terribly. It was in that condition that the steamer Germond, outward bound, rescued them in the afternoon and took them to Liv erpool, whence they sailed home eight days ago. Neither man can speak a word of English. BOY ROBBER. Raleigh Conklin of Mount Sterling; Held Under a Heavy Bond. Mt. Sterling, 111., Sept. 29.

A Scene of Liveliness and Business at the Store of Goldberg Bros. It was a pleasant sight last evening to look into the great store of Goldberg Bros, and witness the crowds of cus tomers and the rushing clerks. Such a night's business has not been en countered even by that live house for many a day. There was a constant stream of workingmen in overalls, mothers with Bchool children, men, young and old, pouring forth with their packages done up in bright-colored wrappers, which can be recognized a block away as Goldberg's own, or passing in to waitfor their turn to be supplied with underwear, overwear, hats, shoes or almost anything else. The way the clerks handled them all was a marvel. Joking with one, sparring for a second with another, finding out what each one wants, keeping all good-natured and selling everyone to best advantage and with the utmost tact and judgment. Goldberg Bros, have surely got things coming their way. DP IN ARMS. Revolt of Sugar Planters Still Continues. Now Compels Attention of Democrats. Party Leaders Attempt to Patch Up a Truce. Are Promised the Bounty of 1S94-95 If They Will Only Vote the Democratic Ticket. By the Associated Press. Washington, Sept, 29. The revolt of the Louisiana sugar planters is begin ning to compel the serious attention of the Democratic campaign committee. Leaders of the Democratic party all declare that should the p'anters hold their hands they may be given the bounty for 1894-5, which is what they, are fighting for. It is certain the Presi dent has given assurances that he will do what he can to have the bounty for this year paid, and Mr. Carlisle has said the same thing. ' It will certainly not be recommended, however, if the planters persist in their present course, for men like Speaker Crisp and Senator Jones of Arkansas, declare they will not assist the faction which proposes to go out of the Demo cratic party and break the solid South out of mere revenge. "If this bounty be paid at all," said Mr. Carlisle to a Louisiana senator, "it must be voted by the present house. With what sort of grafle can the plant ers ask a party to give them $9,000,000 when they have deliberately repudiated thai I party?" "It took twenty years of blood ' and work to take this state away from the Republican column," said a north Louisiana man yesterday: "A return to Republicanism simply means a re-, sumption of black rule. We will never permit this while the world endures." DID NOT AGREE. Jury In the Patterson Shooting Case Discharged. Los Anghles, Cal., Sept. 29.

Indian School Maidens Applaud the ' Hard Hitters. The Phoenix boys retaliated yesterday and defeated the hoys of the Indian school by a score of 18 to 15. The dusky fellor. B played a good game of ball and led until the eighth inning when they became somewhat rattled by vociferous couching and prevented from good fielding by the low descending sun which shone in their eyes and allowtd the white boys to pile up seven or eight runs. The Indian boys are the hardest hit ters. Every member has an eye "for the ball and usually finds it. They ran well but with the exception of one or two do rot play off or get a good lead in rnnning bases. They are magnifi cent throwers, especially the catcher, who nailed a number of attempted base robbers. A large body of the girls were driven to the grounds on a bay wagon and occupied the grand stand'. They clapped and laughed at every play and seemed to understand the game. The home runs and hard hits, especially, pleased them. With a little more coaching the Indian aggregation will give the senior Phoenix team a hard battle. TWO MORE TEACHERS. The School Board Establishes Addi tional Rooms. The board of school trustees yester day decided to add two more grades, a sixth and a third, to the Central school. Prof. J. D. James was employed for the former and Miss Mary Tyrell for the, latter. Both were connected with the schools last year. Prof. James as princi pal of the west end schools. Two rooms will be immediately fitted tip in the high school building for temporary use and as soon as possible permanent fur niture will be procured. At the beginning of the year two ad ditional teachers were added to the force and it was thought that no more would be needed. The enrollment last Wednesday, however, exceeded that of a corresponding day in the term of last year by nearly 200 pupils, and the sixth and third grade facilities proved to be utterly insufficient.
