The subscription received to-day from Australia for the strikers' fund amounted to 4,52.1. The Daily Telegraph, comment ing oil the strike, says: "It is not too much to say that 2,000,000 has been squandered, while there are not wanting prophets who declare that the port of London will never recover its lormer prosperity. 'We scarcely think that, and while, if the casual laborer is well out and replaced by a higher and more organized set of workers, something will have been done toward the evolution of the fittest." Mr. Burns went at midnight to the Surrey commercial docKs to endeavor to induce the men not to hinder a general reconciliation to-day. He urged upon them that they could fight out the dispnted points after ward in an amicable manner. FOR GOLD AND SILVER. A Notable Speech Delivered Before tho Bl-Mrlalllc Congress nt Paris A Thorough Exntnlnntlon or tlio Vnrlous Proposals Necessary. Paris, September 13. At the session of the Bi-metallic Congress to-day Dana Hor ton made a notable address in defense of bi-metallism. The common organization has decided that no proposal shall be sub mitted to a vote. The Congress will, there lore, not adopt any resolution. The mem bers of the Congress visited, the Bank of France to-day. Mr. Horton declared that the monetary constitution had been wrongly understood, because in the past there was a superior coinage of silver and an accessory coinage of gold. The example set by England gave strength to the idea of excluding one of the metals from the privilege of being legal tender. At the time of the metrical reform it was thought desirable to have a single metal in order to fix the limit of the metri cal system. As a result of this situation, there was created a kind of orthodoxy. The supporters of the anti-silver doctrine did not desire to demonetize silver, s-ince Levasseurs' proposal was to coin silver at the market price. He therefore thought there was reason for congratulating the En glish and German reformers, whose adver saries are now professing the right path. In conclusion he declared that what was now necessary was a more thorough exam ination of the proposals in favor of silver in order to arrive at an agreement between scientific representatives.

He was accompanied by Chief Engineer Jennings, of the road. The offi cials of the road pledged themselves to build the road through Hamilton, provided the city would assure them of the right of way. This the Council promised if the option of saving where entrance was to be effected was allowed the city. The arrangement was agreed to on both sides, and the approach of the Canadian Pacific to the Niagara river and its connection with the Home, Water town and Ogdensburg Bailroad to New Tork is almost a certainty. This move is to cut off the New York Central from its proposed move to reach JLoronto. buch a move will be disnuted every inch of the wav through Canadian territory.

Liverpool, September 13. It has been definitely determined by the Canard Com pany to build two new ocean racers next year. The success of the City of Paris, of the Inman line, in breaking the record previously held by the Cun arder Etruria, has, in the minds of the managers of the Cnnard line, made such a step necessary. The precise dimen sions of the new ship's have not yet been de termined, out it is not denied that thev will be monstrous twinscrew ships, built tb beat the record, possibly with an eye to making a four-day record. The superiority of twin-screw ships in rigidity, handiness, speed aud economy has been sufficiently demonstrated by the three twin-screij ships now in the Liverpool trade, and the Cunard people do not mean to experiment further with single screws. If the Cunarders are to build a ship to beat five days, she will have to steam at the rate of 23.3 knots for the entire passage. A New Private Secretary. Albany, September 13. T. S.

New York, September 13. F. "W. Gess wein, the well-known millionaire importer and manufacturer of jeweler's tools and supplies, was ruthlessly shot down and killed by Christian Deyhle this morning. The shooting took place about 10:45 o'clock in Mr. Geswein's private office. It was the result of a business quarrel over a reflector, which Deyhle claimed he had patented. The two men had been at law about the patent, and. Deyhle had been been beaten in his suit He had been ac customed to call upon Mr. Gesswein fre quently at his store, iu John street, but alter his defeat in the courts he discon tinued his visits. A FATAL VISIT. Nothing had been seen of him for the past six months until 9 o'clock this moraine. when Devhle walked into Gcsswein's store and inquired for the proprietor. He was in formed that Mr. Gesswein had not arrived, but was expected shortly. When, half an hour later, Mr. Gesswein entered the store Deyhle gave a nod of recognition, arose, and approaching him, said that he came on pri vate business. "All right," replied Gesswein, "come into my office." Thereupon the two men went up stairs into the little private office on the second floor, where the tragedy oc curred. They were alone, with the door closed. No one knows exactly what oc curred. Mr. Charles F. Koester, one of the clerks in the store, has his desk right next the thin board pirtition which separates Mr. Gesswein 's office from the remainder of the room, and olthoughi he could not see what was done, he could hear almost every thing that was said. . DEMANDED MONEY. He beard loud talking between the two men. but did not think it necessary to in terfere,. He heard Mr. Deyhle demand money from his employer, and when the latter refused there was a loud report He then rushed into the room Gesswein stag gered toward the lounge, but before he could reach it fell to the floor and expired imme diately, uttering only a groan. Deyhle was standing in the middle of the noor with a smofcing revolver in his hand. Koester seized him, at the same time snatch ing the revolver, and calling for help. In an instant there were half a dozen clerks from down stairs nt his side. Someone went for an officer while Koester held Deyhle, who uttered not a word, but appeared as cool and collected as when he entered the store two hours earlier.' Coroner Schultze was summoned and took charge of the remains. The prisoner is jn old German of 69 years. He was shabbily dressed in gray, and had a small, dirty looking valise in which were several small tin boxes containing substances which the police said looked like poisonous matter. He had only a few cents in his pocket HIS REASON EOR THE DEED. ''Why did you kill Mr. Gesswein?" he was asked. ."He has ruined me. I invented and had patented a reflector for jewelers, made sam ples myself and sold them to Gesswein at 81 apiece. I lived pretty well on that for a time, but he soon copied my reflectors him self and I was unable to get along. So I sued him in the United States Court be fore Judge Brown, who decided against me. Three weeks ago I wrote a letter in German to Mr. Gesswein, asking him for money. He answered me in the same language that I would never get any from him, the Court having decided in his favor. "Then I decided to leave Philadelphia, where I was living with two of my sisters, and come to New York and speak myself to that man. I had no money to go into busi ness again, no money to enter the Home for Aged People of Philadelphia, and I could remain a burden to my sisters no longer. When I entered Gesswein's store this morn ing he had not arrived. I waited for him. He arrived at last and bid me come upstairs in his office. When Mr. Gesswein refused positively my request for $500 1 drew my re volver and quickly fired at him without leaving the chair, I was occupying by his xeit sine. MILLIONS INVOLVED. Final Decision In tho Suit of J. P Farley Against Commodore KHtscn'n Estate The Court Decides the Claim Nat Valid. SPECIAL TEtKOBAK TO TDK DISPATCn.1 St. Paul, September 13. After nine years of litigation, at a coit of nearly $1,000,000 on both sides, a decision was rendered to-day by Judge Brewer, of the "United States Circuit Court, which settles a lawsuit involvine S5.000.000. and em bracing in its progress the story of how two great fortunes were made. James J. Hill, president of the Manitoba system, is to-day rated at $15,000,000, at least nine-tenths of which was the direct outcome of events and transactions which figure in this big lawsuit. Commodore Kitt- sen died worth about $4,000,000, fully one-half of which came through the same channel. J. P. Farley is the man who for nine years has fought through the courts for a division of these enormous gains, only to be told at last that he has no claim upou any part of the millions. It was in 1873 that Farley was appointed receiver of tne bankrupt concern, known as the First Division of the St. Paul and Pacific Bailroad, whose bonds were mainly held in Holland. Default in interest payments led to the appointment of a re ceiver. At its first hearing in the United States Court Farley was knocked out, but on appeal to the Supreme Court the finding was reversed and tne case ordered to be tried on its merits. The final hearing and argument took place before Judge Brewer last winter, and after holding the matter under advisement for eight or nine months he now finds in favor of the defendant's, holding that Far ley's statements were untrue. To fight Farley's claim has cost James J. Hill fully half a million dollars. He had purchased all of Kittsen's Manitoba hold ings some time before the old Commodore died, but this did not prevent the Kittsen heirs from being sadly embarrassed pending the result of the big suit, for it was ordered that the estate be placed in the hands of the St. Paul Trust Company, there to remain until Farley's claim was dis posed of. The Kittsen heirs were allowed $15,000 a year to live on, but this was not enough to keep up the big mansion which the Commo dore built on St. Anthony Hill, and they have been poor people since the old man died.

Moro Inside History of the Deals ofNnpoI- eon Ives His Farmer Secretary Again Upon the stand The Facts .Elicited. New York, September 13. In the Ives trial to-day the cross-examination of Treas urer Short was resumed. The witness testi fied that immediately after the adjourn ment yesterday he went to the room of the District Attorney and there met Mr. Wood ruff and a Mr. Smith, a former clerk of Ives & Co., but nothing was elicited from the witness as to what took place there. In the evening, at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, he said he had conversed some time .with B. D. Marshall, counsel for the Cincinnati, Ham ilton and Dayton road, F. H. Lawrence and Ernest Zimmerman. The Assistant District Attorney then brought out the fact that the question re lating to Ives and Staynor's acquittal last spring was not because the acts alleged were not committed, bnt because they were out of the jurisdiction of the State of Ohio. Reverting to the 60 certificates he brought out the fact of their signatufe by the wit ness at Ives' instance, of his calling upon Judge Hoadly to inquire as to the propriety of his signing them in blank and of Judge Hoadly stating it was all right, as it was under order from a superior officer. Con cerning the subsequent issue of bonds Mr. Short said he did not know thev were sold. but believed they had been, a credit having been made of $2,611,342 in a letter from Ives'& Co., at New York. This letter was produced as evidence. The deposit account between Ives & Co. and the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Davton road was then thoroughly gone into to gether, with the amounts placed to that firm's credit by Treasurer Short. Once he hud a telegram from Staynor to remit $250, 000 t IJew York, which the witness did. At various times he drew on the smaller roads controlled by the Cincinnati, Hamil ton and Dayton, aud sent the money .to Woodruff. THKEE TIMES THEEE CHEERS. AT ATLANTIC CITY. Tho Storm-Swept Resort Rapidly Regain Inc Its Normal Condition. Atlantic Citt, N. J., September 13. The sun came out bright this afternoon and many people took advantage of the fact to take in the sights along the beach front A large number of work men are engaged in clearing away the debris and this storm swept city is rapidly getting to its normal condition. The German ship, Geistlemunde, which went ashore last night, is high and dry on the beach about 500 yards south west of the West Jersey Excursion House. Thousands of people visited the snot fo-day. Capiain Le'nthe, her commander, tells this story of tbe loss of his vessel: "On "Wednesday, onr fifty-seventh day out, we lost our bearings. That evening we hailed a New York steamer and were informed that we were about 25 miles from Absecon light, bnt within an hour there after we struck. Our signal of distress was answered by what I supposed to be a pilot boat light and X ncadea tor it. The water has almost entirely subsided, and tbe bed of the Camden and Atlantic Bailroad is clear. Until this morning no definite idea of the damage to the "West Jersey road could be gained, but as the mist clears away and the spray disappears. it is seen that the road bed is in terrible shane. "Possibly the Beading Bailroad, taking the entire stretch into consideration, is the most completely wrecked, but as far as the work of repairs is concerned the "West Jersey will need as much attention. The West Jersey officials despatched heavy repair trains to the scene of disaster yesterday, and will push the necessary repairs to a speedy completion. The Beading road has also several hundred men actively at work on tne Meadows. An Ex-Confeilernto Colonel Arouses Enthu siasm Among tbe Union Veterans. Arkansas City, Kan., September 13. The time of the reunion of the Southwestern Soldiers' Association to-day was devoted to a reception to John T. Crisp, an ex-Confederate Colonel. At the Confederate re union at Higginsville two weeks ago Colo nel Crisp eulogized Lincoln and Grant and refused to pay a tribute to Jefferson Davisand General Lee. This attracted the attention of the Union veterans, and they invited him to the reunion. He made an address on the relations be tween the North and South, and advocated the destruction of sectional prejudices by forbearance. He eulogized Lincoln and Grant. His speech was tbe event of the Encampment, and the enthusiasm aroused among the veterans was extraordinary. He was given an ovation, and at the end of his speech the veterans cheered him three times three. Ocean vessels are beginning to arrive in New York harbor with wornout crews aboard, glad once more to set foot on land. The reports of the work of the cyclone still indicate more damage done both in sea and on shore. I SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THIS DISPATCH. New York, September 13. Never was a sight of port more pleasing or rest more comforting than they were to the sailormen, literally storrutossed sailormen, who reached the harbor to-day. Scare a man among them but had a tale to tell of the battered hulls, broken spars and torn sails and of tbe fearful violence of the hurricane. All agree thai the sea was the ugliest they had ever seen north of Hatteras at this sea son of the year. To Captain Jos. McKee, of the Clyde Line steamer Yemasee, belongs the largest measure of praise, for he brought into port Captain and Mrs. Bull, 2 children and 13 men that had been rescued from the sinking Norwegian bark Alsylva, at 12 o'clock noon on Thursday. Captain Ohn, of the Norwegian fruit steamer Hogin, from Baracoa; Captain Kemble, of the steamer Knickerbocker, from New Orleans, and Captain Dole, of the old Dominion steamer Cleopatra, from Norfolk, all report fearful weather and very ugly cross seas north of Hatteras. AN UNKNOWN MAN'S DBATH. The latter steamer supplied the lumber laden schooner Adelene, of St. Johns, N. B., with provisions. Her captain said that on Tuesday night the decK load was washed overboard, and with it the schooner's mate, whose name he did not know. Nineteen storm-defying steamships came in from the white-capped tumult of the open sea and passed quarantine into safety. Only eight of a big fleet of sailing craft that ought to have been here by Thursday were reported. Not a few of them,the nautical ex perts conjecture, have met with disaster. Five of this lucky octet were barks, two ships, one brig and a schooner. The Old Dominion Tjinn RtPAmnhin Olrl Dominion, which arrived, fell in with the dismasted schooner Kobert JUcFarland off Fenwlck Island, on Thursday afternoon, and towed her into tbe Delaware break water. She was leaking badly and was utterly at the mercy of the hurricane. Her decks had been swept clean. None of her crew were hurt. The bark Eudora, Captain Lewis, 49 days from Buenos Ayres, in ballast, was thumped pretty hard by giant seas and lost or split nearly all her sails. RAN. BEFORE THE WIND. The schooner Ada Barley gave up the at tempt to get from Baltimore to Buenos Ayres when the gale struck her on Septem ber 8, 300 miles south of Delaware. She turned her nose this way, and arrived after a rough experience to-day. She lost her main boom and sail and 4cr lifeboats, and had everything movable washed from her decks. The bark Lord Templeton, 46 days from Bremen, had every thing movable swent from her decks and lost a tew sails. The Italian bark Pie trino, 83 days from Smyrna, also lost and split nearly all her canvas. The bark St. James, Captain Cook, 150 days from Hiogo, had to fun before tbe blast for nearly a day to say;e herself from being wrecked. The Anchor line steamer, City of Borne, which arrived Thursday evening, did not reach her dock until to-night. Some of the steerage passengers state that she narrowly escaped being run into by an outbound steamer to-day, while lying outside the bar. The rain and fog were so thick that a person on deck could scarcely see a boat's length ahead. The City of Home was waiting for a pilot, when up loomed a big steamer in the fog, coming right toward her. The steamer's name was not learned, so the passengers say, but she came mighty near making herself felt. STRANDED VESSELS. A FIGHT OYER A FOUL. The Teenier Partisans Set Upon Hnmrn With Physical Force Teemer's Claim , of Foal Considered A Decision Is Coming To-Day. After the race was over, Teemer's judge claimed a foul for him. alleging that Hamm had interfered with the McKeesDorter. Teemer, however, never approached the referee's boat to lodge any objection. His judge's objection, nevertheless, was taken into consideration, and the contestants, Hamm and the judges, were ordered to meet the referee at the National Hotel, Mc Keesport. When they met Teemer made a statement that he ran into Hamm and broke his (Teemer's) boat, Hamm began to make his statement when a general row ensued. Teemer's brother, Andy, rushed on Hamm and soon had him down on the floor of the room. St. John, the reporters and others rushed in and stopped the onslaught. Hamm got up with a badldamaged face. Amid the general brawl the referee ordered the parties directly interested to make their statements at The Dispatch office to-day at 3, o'clock p. si. Thns, the race stands undecided. It was for $1,000 a side, and probably a more ex citing contest of its kind never took place in this locality. The Dispatch has no comment to make to-day, but will do so to morrow.

Brooklyn Citizen. 1 An interesting incident took place on an elevated tram a few nights ago. At one of the Broadway stations a middle aged man and a woman, apparently his wife, entered the train. At the next station another woman got on and took up a position, fac ing the married couple. She had not long beeu on the train before the Kan's glances caused her to smile, and he did likewise. They were carrying on a flirtation when the man's wife discovered it, and after scowling at the woman, caught hold of her husband's mustache and gave it a severe poll. He tried to say Something, but she held on to his bristles and exclaimed in an un dertone: "I told you not to do it." The woman who caused the rumpus between man and wife got frightened and left the train. The couple also got off right after. An EfTemlnato Little Dade.

She left Stettin July 14, for Philadelphia.loaded with cement and empty coal oil bar rels. She struck the beach about 8 o'clock Thursday evening. The Absecon life-saving crew went out and fonnd the crew of 18 men in a panicky condition. Toward midnight the sea threw the Geestermunde arouud nearer in shore, and this morning she was less than 40 yards away from the beach. The crew were obliged to abandon the vessel, and she will probably be a total loss. The steamer which went ashore last even ing near Cape Henry proves to be the God revv, iron laden, from St. Jagof Cuba, to Baltimore. The vessel rests easily half a mile from shore. She will he saved. The schooner Nellie V. Stokes, of Deer Isle, Me., from Mount Desert for New York, with granite, was wrecked on Chatham Bar last night.

Very often these wits in spite of themselves are magistrates, Chairmen of Quarter Ses sions and County Court Judges, bnt occa sionally they have been heard at Assizes or in the Chancery and Queen's Bench Courts. It was a Justice of the High Court to whom, in former days, was attributed the famous exordium of a charge to a jury in a case of larceny. "For 40 centuries the thunders of Sinai have echoed through the world Thou shalt not steal. This is also a principle of the common law and a rule of equity." When Swift and Pope made their cele brated excursion into the art of sinking- in poetry, they never contrived any pathoj more perfect or complete than this. Almost as delightful, though expressed without the same literary skill, is the sentence ot a pres ident of a court martial: "Prisoner, not only have you committed murder.but you have run a bayonet through the breeches of one of Her Majestv's uni forms."

Newport, B. I., September 13. The United States cruiser Atlanta, Captain Howell, arrived at 10 o'clock this morning. A boat came ashore an hour later, nnd it was learned that the At lanta left New York last Monday morning, going outside, round Sandy Hook, and had not been back there since, so the report that she passed around Sandy Hook yesterday was a mistake. Since Monday she has been standing off shore, lying off and on in order to weather the gale. She kept a good distance from land, preferring the gale to the rocks along shore. Land was sighted only once, last Tuesday morn ing. The cruiser was for the most part off Montauk Light. The weather was thick and fogey. The storm was very severe and the gale sharp, but the cruiser weathered it without damage. She took some seas and was pretty wet. but behaved admirably, surprising the officers themselves. Yesterday Coxswain John Sanders, of Bar Harbor, died suddenly of heart disease, and was buried at sea about 50 miles off shore. The Atlanta will remain for her trials, for which she came on.

He could not find them. Finally he looked on the mantel and there he saw them filled with the cnt flowers. "What are the cuspidors doing ud there?" he asked his wife. "I ionnd these pretty vases on the floor and filled them with flowers," she answered. Now she knows better. , HER BEAL NAME. Identity of the Girl Who Was Murdered at Bahirny, X. J. rsrzciAi.
