Of the Lake Shore lload at the Town
of Lake -A J-arrow Ed
cape. Chicago, III., September 11. Tbe
war against the Lake Shore luiuroau
Company in the town of Lake has
broken ont afresh, this time iu a new
and dangerous tnBnupr. The latest
method ia thd n;e of explosivep.snaan
attempt to dt etioy th property of the
csmcaay might have involved the lose
of li'e. A ie momen's before 12
o'clock last night JaniBS Calvin, the
night opia or, wasauiiHK in iue tu
Dal tower of the Like Bhoie Company
at the intersect on of the main and
BtOck vartln t asts. The t)wer is
thirty feet high and in it is machinery
by which trie switches, signals and
gates for a long distance a'ong tbe line
of the roai are tnrned. Calvin wis
alone in the top of the tower and bad
noticed noth ng unusual, when he was
suddenly startled by seeing a column
of smoke arise at one side of the struc
ture. It was bright moonlight, so that
he was aware cf the nature cf the
cloud, and in an instant his lit'le room
was completely filled with a blinding
smoke wtJict almost euttocated him
Calvin started to rash down tbe stairs
to investigate the cause of tbe unusual
phenomena. As he reached tbe land
ing below
took pine, and at that moment Calvin
saw the figure of a tall, slender man
dart, away from the building. The
inan ran west toward Iho slock ytrds
and wai loet in the labyrinth of cars
which cover the the t tacks. At this
instant an explosion occurred. Calvin
was thrown to the ground with ex
trims force and his bat was blown off
his head through a window. .Such
Wis the lorce of trie explosion that a
number of tooU were lifted from the
floor and crashed thrcugh the win
dows. Calvin did not lo:e coneciouf
neae, and a'tar pulling himself to
gether rushed out on the tracks. Offi
cers Donovan and Ccslello were on
guard at the time at the Koot street
crossing. They heard the detonation
and ran to the tower, where they
found Calvin terribly frightened.
Then a search of the tower whs made
and it was rewarded by the finding of
a twenty inch piece of shattered gas
pipe. Close to it was a package of
something, which looked like cotton
which had been soaked in soma kind
of dark liquid. Smoke was coming
from it and bright sparks were thrown
off. A bottle containing what is sup
posed to be an a. id was picked up
near by. The door of the signal tower
was f jar, and tbe dangerous explo-ive
ha 1 been thrown oa the fhor. Tee
TBX noosK.
In the cellar are the bait erics need
for the electric signals. There were
100 battery cells in the room, and of
these thirty-four were bioken. Not
only this, but tbe pneumatic tubes
a so used in the signaling were torn
and twisted and the whole system was
utterly ruined. It will take thousands
of dollars to repair the damage. When
daylight came another search was
made for more explosives. There is
a little shed at the it ar of tbe tower,
Iu this a small bundle, supposed to
contain another explosive, was picked
np. It was wreppad in paper and
tied with a b'a( k cord. It was eoiked
in some substanca and was laid in an
old mattress. The police were afraid
to open it, and it was removed to the
town ball. Calvin had only been in
charge of thi tower a lit'le while,
baring relieved William Nev'ns.
What makes the attempt more das
tardly is tbe fact that the ontward
bound passenger train, No. 12, was
due at the town a few mitutes af;er
the explosion occurred.
is that the wreckers hoped to blow up
the tower, and when the pasengr
train came along to throw a switcn,
and thus the train would have plunged
into the mass of frngbt cars that line
tbe side tracks. The explosion would
have done greater damage had the
d:orbeen closed aftor the package
was ignited. There were also other
attempts at destroying propeity on the
Lake Shore road last night, one of
which was auccjssful, ttiu other re
sulting in tho arrest of the man con
cerned in the affair. About 8 o'c'Ock
last Liirht the L ike Bhore road re
ceived from the Illinois Central a train
of twen'y-eight c?rs. Whi.'o these
were bsiug Uken ovar tie Koot street
crossing a switch was thrown sfier
about hall the cars had passed, cauring
a general wreck. Fifteen of the cars
were derailed, and a though no lots of
life or serious damage resulted, the
contents of the cars were bidly shaken
up. Aboiit midnight John Fagan, an
ex-switchman of the Lake Shore road.
was snestedat Forty-third ttreet just
as he was about, It is charged, to throw
a switch, with the ptkposxof derailing
a train drawn by engine No. 532. Tbe
arrest of Fagin was made by one of
tbe Pinkerton officer?, who ate still
guarding the Lake Shore tracks at
that point, tbe prisoner being taken to
the Harrison Street Station and locked
ING His explanation of the affiir is as fol
lows: la company with a man named
Murphy, who is also an ex-Lake Shore
switchman, he was walking along the
tracks, and claims that neither of
them noticed the approaching train
until it was eo close to them that tbey
were separated by if. He says that
when arrested by the Pinkerton offi
cers he was looking under the train as
it passed to see if any harm bad come
to Murphy.
The Lake 8hore officials when they
heard of tbe attempt to blow up the
signal tower were great y exercised.
Supt. Amsdon immedia'ely went to
Fortieth street to make investigations.
The officers of the road knew nothing
of tbe circumstances only what they
had heard from meager reports. W. H.
Mcintosh, chief of the detective force
of the company, this morning said
that up to yesterday the attempts to
destroy the property of the company
had boen confined to points at some
distance north and sonth of the Forty
third street yards. The police had
confined themselves to a surveillance
of the points at which these attacks
had been made and the signal tower
had been left entirely unprotected.
Mr. Mcintosh further said that he was
sure he knew who had committed the
outrage last night, and that he would
have them all under arrest within ior-ty-eight
hours. lie has sent out all
the available men under his supervis
ion, and a determined effort tr appre
hend the perpetrators is now heirg
made. .

tainp, September 11. The most as
tonishing incident of a somewhat un
eventful day was the receipt of several
telegrams asking u rreeiJei.t uiev'
land had really been fchot and if he
was much hurt. Editor Butler, cf.ttae
Buffalo Xewi, asked for an Immediate
answer to this rumor. From the
Weitern Union office. New York,
came an inquiry about the President's
condition, and this evening a similar
dispatch was received from Pla twburg,
from Dr. Ward, who had reached that
point on his way to h s home in Al
banv. As Mr. Cleveland was in tbe
eojoyment of pe-ftct hea'ta, acd ro
accident or barm had bt fallen him, of
course only one answer could be
made. What pczz'es the ptople here
is how such a rumor was sat afloat. It
could hardly havd had its origin iu
this vicinity, lor no such absurd state'
menis were sent out from the tele
graph office at this inn, and no did'
path of anv such tenor wvs sent from
the only other telegraph office in the
neighborhood that at Paul bmith e,
seventeen miles away.
Tonight the President treated tbe
members of his household to trout
captured by himself this morniug.
Auother hunt will prorjahiy occur to

Some very, important businesi was
transacted by the Presbytery,
Mr. L. W. Curlis, a member of the
Jtirst rresbyterian Church, was re
ceived as a candidate for the ministry
and repaired at once to Clarasvil:e to
pursue his studies.
Two colored licentiates, Thcs. Mac
lin and W. P. Lloyd, were ordained to
tbe full work of the ministry and ar
rangements were made for their in
stallation at an early day. These two
students were t'uined at the institute
at Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Presbytery
examined them for several hours. The
examioetion was not only satisfactory
but would have done credit to any
young man. They are well posted on
all the leadicg points of theology.
Their sermons were well ptepare'd
written sermons, delivered with
freedom and earnestness. Tbe Pres
bytery stands convinced that Tusca
loosa Inttiute is doing a great work
for the elevation ol theolored race in
training such preachers as Maclin and
Floyd. The great need of the colored
raca is intelligent pieacbera.
Due attention was also given to the
subject of home m saiooe. Ia the
past two years tbe Prisbytary bai been
giving Bpecial attention to the "River
field." The Rev. J. F. Floyd has been
laboring in that field for more than a
year with marked success. The Lee
Line has shown bim appreciated fa
vors in going up aad down tbe river
to his appointments. It has been de
termined by the Presbvterv to send a
colaborer with him to assist in devel
oping that promising fie d.
The First and Second churches, of
which Drs. Daniel and Boggs are pas
tors, respectively, have volunteered to
support the additional evangelist. The
remaining cbuiches of the Presbytery
havo become responsible for Mr.
Lloyd's support. Tbis is the most
agsressive work of the Presbytery,
and perhaps the most promising.
Tbe Bihvar Church has secure-! the
services of a paster. The charge
made vacant by tho death of D.-. V.
O. R'chardson will, it ia hoped, soon
obtuin the services of a pastor, and
then the enfre territory covered by
the Presbytery ot Memphis will be
well supplied with preaching. The
next regular s'sdon ot the Prcn'aytery
will be held at Germsntown.

A dross ExiiKgerallon,
Beaton Globe (Dera.). September 3d:
A serious phase of slavery is being re
vived in tome factions ol tho oauth.
It consists in taking advantage of the
ignorance of the negro, Inducing him
to bond himself for a eiven time under
contract, and then holding him prac
tically as a slave, through the penalty
of foifeiting alt his wages if he leaves
before the contract is executed on his
part. Through tbe co-opera ion of
employers who secure help under tbis
system, tbe negro who leaves his em
ployer finds himself under the pres
sure of a boycott to severe that his ex
istence is practically choked off.
While in one sense such sarvitnde is
voluntary, it becomes nracticallv in-
volnntiry when employers conspire to
black litt an employe who fiods his
condition into'eiable, and is even will
ing to forfeit the wages ho has earned.
Mudified i radices of thin kind have
long ex'sted in our New England fac
tor cs, but emplovers dare nut faiher
ihem openly, and the New England
workingraan is intelligent enough to
appeal to tbe law for redress. Iu the
B iiith the employers openly advertise
the black list in the prominent papera
and wara all other that the boycott is
rn. it is t be hoped that the investi
gition into convict labor authorized
by the last Congress may be made to
reach these abuses, and that if they do
