Beautiful British Election
London, July 20. If further evidenoe
was needed of the bra tali ty of English
mobs on election day it was famished
yesterday in the eastern Norfolk district,
where H. Rider Haggard, the novelist,
was the Conservative candidate. He made
a tour of the district in a foar-horse drag
and was repeatedly pelted with mad and
stones. Near Ladham, Miss Cartnp, a
member of Haggard's party, was out on
the head by flying missiles, and at Stal
ham the party was obliged to take refuge
in a hotel, which was beseiged by a mob
of 800 persons, who fled when the polioe
appeared. Haggard returned to North
Walsham, escorted by mounted polioe.
Miss Cartnp was too ill to be moved.
At Walsham, Haggard made a speech, in
whioh he said that, in all his travels, he
had not seen such dastardly conduct.
Haggard was defeated, the vote standing:
East Norfolk, R. J. Price, Liberal sitting
member, 1,678; Rider Haggard, Conserva
tive, 4,480; Liberal majority, 198; loss of

Harvey Conies Mtrongly to the front
In Muuport of II In Side of the
Coinage Debate.
Chioago, July 20. The fourth day of
the Horr-Harvey silver contention
opened in the Illinois clab at 1 o'clock
this afternoon. Mr. Harvey opened the
talk with a statement of the points so far
established. They .were that prior to
1873 gold and silver were the money of
the constitution; that silver was the unit
of value tip to that time; that the debtor
was permitted to pay in the cheaper
money, and that silver was not demone
tized beoause of ady over production at
the time the .-act ' of 1878 was passed.
Taking up the debate proper, Mr. Harvey
denied that he had" at any time tried to
impeaoh the integrityof the Amerioan
people, but he did not propose to allow
corrupt legislators to throw the mantle
of national' honesty around them for
their own protection. The speaker
reeogniied the integrity of the Amerioan
people and it was to that he appealed.
The speaker then resumed his statement,
interrupted at the close of the talk on
Thursday, of the various steps leading np
to the passing of the act of 1873.

oitizens of the United States by being in

leave this camp by August 1, 1895, or we
shall take heroic-means to see that they
do leave on that date. If you value the
lives of your 'subjects' and have any in
fluence wtth them, yon will give them ad
vioe to leave. They are obnoxious and
working under wages by paying monthly
installments to the foreman of the mine,
and such things will not be tolerated any

seotions of the country indicate a great
product for the year. The railroads are
all preparing for au immense amount of
business. The president of one of the
roads told me tbey were getting ready to

Novel Scheme of Knights or Labor to
Curtail the rower of National
Washington, July 20. The Times
prints the outlines of a manifesto to be
issued by Master Workman Sovereign, of
the K. of L., for the boycott of all na
tional banks. It wilt be addressed to
the E. of L., the Farmers' Alliance, the
People's party, reform clubs and kindred
sooieties, reciting "the wrongs of the toil
ing thousands and their sufferings at the
hands of the money making powers," and
a call for a boyoott of national bank
notes in all dealings between individuals.
It is to go into effect September 1.
Washington, Secretary Carlisle ex
presses the opinion that no serions re
salts would follow such boycott.
His conclusion was based upon figures
regarding the circalatloa of national
bank notes. The amount of these out
standing Jane 1, 181(5, was only $206,
579,490 and of this amount abont $20,
000,000 are held by banks. National bank
notes never have been made legal tender
by statute, so it is true it would be im
possible to force any person tn accept
them in individual transactions. They
are, however, available for nse by the
government in payment for all its obli
gations except for interest on the pub
lic debt and redemption of national cur
rency. They are also receivable by the
government as taxes, excises, for publio
lands and for all the obligations due the
government sxoept duties of imports.
Seotton 6, paragraph 196, provides that
uational banks are compelled to aocept
these notes as legal tender.

Hunting for the Body of the Williams
Girl Three Partly Charred Human
Ribs and Part of a Woman's
Shoe Found Holmes Says
He Can Prove an
Chioago, July 20. Some years ago
Chicago was startled by the bold kidnap
ing of Little Annie Redmon, daughter of
a south side blacksmith. Her abductors,
while keeping their identity a secret, ad
mitted in notes to the parents of the child
that their sole object was to hold her for
a big ransom. The kidnapping, as after
ward proved, was done by Mrs. Guerly,
who was sentenced to five years in the
penitentiary. Mrs. Guerly refused to talk
muoh abont the oase, but threw out hints
about having done the job at the instiga
tion of other parties. Since the exposure
of the Holmes rascality it has been ascer
tained that the Guerlys were not only
neighbors of his, but , were on intimate
terms socially with him. It is clear
enough now, to those who have investi
gated the matter, that the mysterious
ubduction of the Redmon ohild was a job
pnt np by Holmes, and that he used the
Guerlys, over whom he had some queer
control, as tools.
Search for the body of the missing
Williams girl was begun early to-day in a
house in Knglewood, formerly ocoupied
by the alleged murderer, H. H. Holmes.
YeBterday's developments had led to the
belief that evidences of the supposed
crime were concealed somewhere about
the house, and the suspicion of the neigh
bors and deteottves pointed strongly to
ward a large cellar, in which a disagree
able odor had been detected. Every foot
in the cellar will bo dng up.
Chicago. An examination of the large
grate of the Holmes stove to-day resulted
in another Btartling discovery, when
three charred bones, resembling human
ribs, were found among the ashes. The
finding of the three supposed ribs, with
a partly burned woman's shoe, the but
tons and pieces of the cloth, was con
sidered by the polioe as practically prov
ing at least that a portion of the body of
a woman had been cream a ted.
Philadelphia. The Press to-day prints
an interview with H.H. Holmes.who insists
that he can prove an alibi with reference
to the murder of the Pietsel ohildron, in
Toronto, and Minnie Williams in Chi
cago, and says that the authorities here
can not prove that Pietsel was murdered
in this city.
Chicago. Later. Late this afternoon
a bunon ot numan hair was found in a
ohimney of the Holmes house by news
paper reporters. The hair was pro
nounced that of a woman. The appear
ance of :he locks led to the belief that
they had been burned from the head and
drawn up the stove-pipe.
