Some experts say it is due to the phenomenally mild weather, which has been favorable to breeding and nourishing certain germs which long ere this time of the "year should have bees annihilated 4by frost. But this explanation is not altogether convincing, seeing at the disease has no geographical limita tion, having thrived lustily alike in the froxenJfortb and the balmy Soptb, and as the Lancet saplently remarks. "Its virus travels over sea and land in a manner so baffling and contradictory to the ordinary conceptions of transmission of infection as to render any simple explanation of its na ture almost impossible." THE SYMPTOMS YABIABLE. The symptoms also vary to a considerable extent, .apparently in sympathy witb cli matic conditions and individual peculiari ties." In this country there is marked cer ebral disturbance, nausea or vomiting, vio lent diarrhoea, sore throat, with extreme muscular weakness, cardiac pain and de pression, and severe aching of the limbs and the muscles of the back. In Spain these 'symptoms are varied by chills, shivers, bone aches, headache and fever. The remedies recommended or enforced are as varied and curious as ths symptoms. In Paris men have painted their mustaches with a preparation of pinol and have tried bravely to give up smoking, Many fami lies have tried keeping indoors, with doors and windows sealed", on the plan referred to here last week, but the result has sot been IfiO WAY 4Mmm?SParBs'''K- rj ,iift i.r a. muuljr omijrr.rtriK. No more"snece'Bj has followed the action of tbfe "Governor of Lower Austria, who has "ventured to issue a proclamation ordering the local authorities to treat influenza like any other Infectious disease. Atthepresen moment there -cannot be less than 500,000 people suffering from this disease in Europe, in Odessa there are at this moment 40,000 victims; in Antwerp there are 10,000 cases; in Paris 60,000 to 80,000; jn Madrid 30,000, and so on. Parisians have almost ceased to make fun over the disease. There may be something comical about red noses and loud sneezing, but when one has to lay abed for days and howl over violent abdominal pains, the daughter is apt to become somewhat forced. BUSINESS AFFECTED. ,7 The disease is seriously affecting business, also, for those who can afford it are rushing i South or migrating into the country, and the masses will, it is feared, have too much to pay the doctors to allow of the average patronage of Christmas and New Year fairs. In Paris, as elsewhere, the disease has been rigidly impartial, the victims includ ing President and Madame Carnot, Minis ters Tirard, Spuller, Preyciuet Bouvier and Pay e. Clemen ceau has to keep his room. The Palais Boyal Theater is closed because Madame Judic and others of the company are in the doctors' hands, and the Vaudeville will probably have to follow suit The school holidays have been has tened, and the troops in garrison are given as little outdoor work and exercise as possible. Finally, the epidemic is spoil ing seasonable festivities and diminishing theater receipts to an alarming extent UK CHECKED IS GEBMAKT. Jn Germany, from Hamburg to Mnnich, influenza is raging unchecked. Several military schools have been closed, and the work of several Government departments li'has been thrown into confusion owing to ji. the number of officials on the sick list 3 Similar news comes from Austria, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Portugal. But it jis comforting to know that not a single 'death has yet been recorded this week as adue to influenza. Everywhere the favorite -remedies seem to be antipyrine and quinine. Jiin which just now there is an emphatic and si tremendous boom. sTThe most exalted sufferer this week is the Rinnan Emperor. Attempts were made to aeny vnai ne naa anytning more serious than a slight cold, but the pretensehad to tbe'abandoned -when it became generally ilcnown that His Maiestv had riven nn V ."hunynjrtrip and had laken to his bed.

A Murderer's Spirit Thought to be Wan- dertag About the Spot Where the Criminal Wu Lynched Ter- ribla Sound and Sights. nrECUX. TELEOBAlf TO TOTS DISFATCR.1 Cabhesville, Ga., December 2L A well-authenticated report has reached a local newspaper office that an apparition has been seen several times lately near here Frank Banders, the murderer, was lynched. It is said that there are heard strange noises and the most awful groans that mortal man ever heard in the woods, and they are unaccounted for by any line of human reasoning. A short while ago an apparently large fire was seen at a distance in the woods, and a large crowd of smajl children was seen dancing and playing around it and having a merry time. The firn annpurcd In he cnmft 200 vards 'from the road, and when those who saw it attempted to go to it, it would appear to make a retreat through the woods, and the pursuer could never get nearer than when he started to it The children appeared to be having a perfect jubilee, as they were danc ing and playing like so many fairies, and having a picnic in the woods by firelight. After making the chase for some time it was abandoned, and the light was left burning and the children dancing in their merry glee. It is said that hooting owls are heard near the spot at all times of the night, and there is one heard almost nightly that has a dif ferent voice from any of the others, and one who once hears it is impressed with the idea that it is a warning of danger. Several col ored people have passed the place recently who have seen something that had the ap pearance of a gallows and & victim upon the scaffold upon his knees making a confes sion, and several ministers around offering up prayers for the cnlprit J. A. Hilley, -who rented Dr. Pceeman's place last year, near the place of the execu tion, left it on account of himself and fam ily having seen things for which they couldn't account and which they thought were supernatural, and its present tenant, J. E. Crawford, has also heard things near the place that are shrouded in mystery to him. These reports have become so general, and are so much believed by the colored people, that those who came from up that road to. town always leave in time to pass the place of the execution before nightfall. CULYER STRIKES BACK. The Cronln Juror Believe That He Only Per formed HI. Duty Judge I,ongenecker Wm Entirely Too Officious. He Waa Not Bribed. Chicago, December 21. Juror John Culver, the man who held out against the infliction of the death penalty in the Cronin trial, makes a statement in answer to tbe published strictures on his conduct He says: When I was sworn to try the case In which! was Impaneled, according to law and the evi dence, I had no Idea that I should be required to satisfy tbe popular clamor, and I now think that jury trials have become the veriest farce If it a true that one must salt his verdict to the demands of newspapers or pnbllo opinion (If. indeed, tbe newspapers express, instead of manufacture, public opinion), or be de nounced and maligned, and his action at tributed to the most detestable of all corruption bribery his rellcion derided, and even his family and wire, dragged in to enhance tbe sensation. Among the nat ural fruits of this passionate and clamorous treatment on the part of the newspapers al luded to I class the numerous published inter views of persons not sworn to try tbe case, and the conduct of Judge Longenecker in stepping out of the sphere of bis duties as prosecuting officer and assuming that of censor of jurors when forsooth their verdict happens noltolie In accordance with his desires, and tbe many obscure and threatening, letters, which myself j and my wtfeliave reoelred. There was, fool conspiracy to murder Dr. Cronln, and that ie was foully murdered was the unhesitating verdict of every juror but if it is true that there are counter secret so cieties, as some of these letters indicate, plot tin; death to jurors that do not And their ver dicts according to tbe desires, of tbe members of tbeso societies, to what a passTiave we come, and in what a perilous position stand onr courts of justice. If I am to be the nextrictlm of these feuds, I shall have nothing to regret except that the law made it my duty to be a juror in this important case, and that tbe state of public feeling is such as to make it possible that such an outrage can be committed upon one who has endeavored to discbarge his duty to the best of his ability.

Herz, at 18 Greenwich street He was promised first class board and $2 60 a day. He says that the men at work in the mines were mostly Germans and Belgians. They were worked from 520 in tbe morning until 6 at night were led on bad bread and half-cooked pork, and had to sleep on tumble-down straw. The men received about 25 cents a day and their board and lodging. He was put in jail for refusing to work, but as he had not signed a contract his taskmasters were compelled to release him. "When he left the mines there were 11 men in prison. Each one had signed a contract binding himself to work for a certain time for the mine, owners. "William Patman, the Belgian Consul at Charleston, wrote to Consul Mali, here, re questing him tn warn the Belgian -immigrants against the Italian padrone, William Orlando, who induced deluded workmen to go South by roseate promises of fabulous wages and a heavenly life.

Mr. Cleveland said that all other applicants used the same argument He said he would like to assist all worthy institutions, but his finances would not allow him to do so, but he would consult Mrs. Cleveland nbout this particular request Then he added significantly: The truth of the matter is that the demands which are constantly made upon me for aid are so numerous, and come from so many different quarters, that I have about made up my mind to leave New York in order to get away from these requests." f TWO TRAINS ON ONE TRACK A Broken Coapllng Canaes n Bad Wreck an the Ft.

PITTSBURG, SUNDAY, BRICE TO BE BARRED Ifrom the Straggle for the Next Sen atorial Toga ia Ohio. CALVIN'S OWN SWORN STATEMENT That He is Citizen of Newlork Will do Used Against Him. , FRANK HDRD MAY BE THB COMING MAN. Ibe Strength of tieEalaiow Chaser Litdj to Goto tbn Free Trader, Candidate Thomas claims to have positive evidence that Brice is a citizen of New York. The latter made affidavit to thatef fect in signing a bond six months ago. This charge, if sustained, would make the na tional Democratic chairman ineligible as Senator from Ohio. tsrr-cTAi yitioiuu to tbb pisrAicn.: Columbus, December 21. John H. Thomas, tbe Senatorial candidate, imparted the information before leaving for his home in Springfield to-night that he had just come into possession of facts which would insure the defeat of Brice. Being pressed for his find he said he had jnst received from bis agent in New York a certified, copy of a paper in which six months ago Brioe went on the bond of a firm of contractors in New York when he made oath to his residence being ia New York. Thomas claims to be able to show that Brice has not voted in Ohio for two years. The constitutional qualifications of a Sen ator are described in article I, seotlon three, clause three, of the Constitution oh the United States, which says: "No person shall be a Senator who shall not have .at tained to the age of 30 years, and been nine years a oitizen of he United Spates, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhab itant of that State for which he shall be chosen." The objection mads against Mr, Brice is that he is not an "inhabitant" of tte SUte of Ohio, but of New York. The point turns on what is meant by "inhab itant," XRB li&W IK OHIO. Bection 2,946 of the revised statutes of Ohio .says: That place shall be considered tbe residence of a person in which bis habitation is fixed, and to wblcb, whenever be is absent, lie bas tbe intention of returning. A person shall not be considered to have lost bis residence who leaves bis home and goes into another State, or county of this state, for temporary purposes merely, witb tbe intention of- returnins- A person snail not be considered to have gained a resideneeln any county in this State, into which he comes for temporary purposes merely. without the! intention of malunc such county ng such county his borne. If a person remove to another State, with an intention to make it his permanent residence, be shaft be considered to have lost bis residence in this State. If a person remove to another State, with an intention of remaining there an indennlte time, and as a place of present residence, he sball be considered to bave lost bis residence In this State, notwithstanding he may entertain an intention to return at some future period. The mere Intention to acquire anew residence, without the fact of removal, sball avail nothing; neither sball the fact of removal without the intention. If a person eo into another State, and while there exercise the right of a citizen by voting, be shall be con sidered to have lost his residence in this State. A YEBf 5XB0HG POINT. It would therefore- seem that even under the most liberal connrrnctian of th law3f Mr,iIhomaS aFtfafaiik prof JssJilnuiigU nionC&almiiilVisBSr e"fibie Brice men have met furious opposition in' the post two days and are calling out all their reserve force, Hon. Prank Hurd, of Toledo, and General Ai N. Bice, of Pre mont, will be here tbe first of, the week to aid in Brice's canvass The fact that Prank Hurd has supported Cal Brice for Senator has surprised many Democrats, and when it was known that Hurd could have had the most of the Bepre sentatives from Northwestern Ohio if he had announced himself as a candidate, tbe sur prise was increased. Congressman Bill Hill, who is at the head ot Brice's bureau, stated that Hurd was to support Brice this year in turn for Brice's opening his barrel to elect a Democratic Legislature, which shonld select Hurd to succeed Sherman in 1893. The disclosure has created a sensa tion among local Democrats. HUBD MAY BE THE MAN. It is the free trader's expressed ambition to go to the Upper House oi Congress, and the combination is one in keenintt with this. Por some time Hurd had been non-committal as to his choice, but after a long confer ence at the Boodv House last week with Brice, lasting nearly a dav, he announoed himself in favor of the New York man. Brice said when last here alter his confer ence that Hurd would henceforth be for him, and that the free trader would be the next Ohio Senator after him. In view of all- these facts it is believed here that if the discovery made by Thomas forces Brice off the traok, or it for any other reason he cahoot secure the Senatorial honors,, the Brice strength will be thrown to Hurd. This would practicallv assure the election of the Toledo statesman, as he Is very popular throughout the State, and would make a very strong candidate even without the support of Brice. v An effort was made by The Dispatch correspondent to-night to reach Mr. Hurd by telegraph, but nothing was learned be yond the fact that he was at Lima in close consultation witri Brice. ABOUT BOOKWALTEB. Mr. Thomas dropped another significant remark to-night "I see you have another candidate in Springfield'' remarked the correspondent. "Y-e-es, who's that?" "Why, Mr. Bookwalter." "Oh, that was announced this morning. I thought you meant a real new candidate," said Mr. Thomas. ""What do you think of his candidacy?" was asked. "I guess Ballentine and Charley Constan tine wanted to attract attention and brought him up. Constantino is an Oklahoma boomer, you know. He was defeated for Mayor ut there. The Bookwalter candi dacy is to serve some side interest that I don't altogether understand. I believe Bal lentine ha been working for Brice." "Do you think that Mr. Bookwalter is a bona ride candidate?" "1 really don't know. It is sometimes hard to learn a man's motives. He is hardly as much an Ohio man as Mr. Brice, how ever. Since his canvass for the Governor ship in 1881 1 don't believe thas he has been in Springfield 60 days in all. It would crowd him to scrape up 60 days that he bas been in Cleveland in the last eight years. He has been in Egypt more than he has been in Ohio in that time." . EILLED FOR TRE8PASBING.

He was sitting in a chair, with a two-ounce phial in nlifjliogers. His eyes-were deeply sunken and'glaring at tbe floor aronnd him, his cheeks were pale and hollow, almost like those of a dead-man.

IRITECIAt TXLXOItAV TQ TBI PUT ATGB.I Netv Yobk, December 31 1 Chu Pong, the Chinese dude, the interpreter and cash ier of Kwong Hong Long & Co., 5 Hott street, also part owners of the big Japanese store at 813 Broadway, who was to start a Chinese bank a few weeks ago, has suddenly disappeared for parts unknown with the funds of the several Chinese firms, amount ing, so far as' now known, to about 515,000. It is supposed that he is in Canada. Sev eral American merchants are also victims, and are mourning over his disappearance. Bach, was the immense confidence reposed in him by the Chinese community, notwithstanding- the faot that there was a suit of $3,000 hanging over him in the Supreme Court for alleged crookedness in an opium deal, that several merchants lent him large sums of money as he desired. THE CHIHE3B VICTIMS. A hurried examination of the bank no counts of several Chinese firms revealed that the names of the following firms had been forged for the sums set opposite their names: Mai Li "W, 19 Bowery, $1,000; Sinn Quong On, 33 Mott street, $1,000; Kwong Hong Long, 5 Mott street $5,000; Joss House Association, $1,600; Mr. Levy, of 10 Chatham square, $600. Other victims are still being heard from, as Chu Ping has many American friends and business acquaintances who do cot yet know of his sudden departure. He bos taken all the cash that he could raise upon his business at 813 Broadway, of which place he was only a part owner, but in which he had a controlling interest The Kwong Hone Long firm is managed by ad uncle of his, who is the heaviest loser of alL A TVOMAK IIT THE CASE. It ia further alleged that Mr. Chu Pong, the late Berry "Wall of Chinatown, New York, has taken with him a very pretty American girl, on whose account, it is al leged, many a former crookedness of Chu Pong was traced. She was the pretty daugh ter of a certain Brooklyn real estate man. Who tbey are or where they live no Chinamen seemed to know, but they all de clare that they haye seen him with her on many an occasion. She was also known by several gentlemen in Howe & Hummel'a of fice, who are Popg's attorneys in New York. Chu Pong is ony 27 years eld, but Is of more than ordinary size for a Chinaman. He weighs 180 pounds, and is full-faced. He dressed . while here in the height of American: fashion, His itjack-hair 1 cut ihortl, aad has a feather edge. He walks with a nodding, forward movement, as if'he had a big corn on his toe, and some one had stepped on it with the gentleness of an elephant The usual Mongolian expression is hardly observable at a dance, but in a moment's conversation you will at once know he is a Chinaman. Xlit, .ABE INTERESTED. Every business firm in Chinatown is just at present busily engaged in trying to find out how , he stands with the bank, and with Chu Pong. Many confiding Chinese Jaundry men who appointed him the custodian of their wealth will "Pot learn of their cashier's disappearance until some day wheu they come down town. It will not be at all surprising if there is yet some throat cutting 'or opium swallowing among tbe latter's depositors, as most of them are poor, hard-working men. Mr. Chu Pong has been a fairly diligent Sunday school scholar ever since his appear ance in New York, some six years ago. His entire crookedness, including that famous opium deal, js set, down at $20,000 so far. but that amount will probably be doubled to morrow or Sunday, when his other victims are heard from. As Joss is also a victim included in this ereat swindle, Mr. Chu. Pong's cousin, Mr. Chu Yon Knew, tbe high priest and Chinese Mayor who left his post of duty a few days since for fearot impeachment for alleged com plication with his other cousins in the recent fantan raid at Chinatown, has been forced to come back to settle Joss' affairs.

TZXXOBAV TO THX DISPATCS.1 Philadelphia, December 2L While? tbe Republican candidates for the nominal tion for Governor have been busy declaring their intentions, the Democratic leaders of the State have not been idle. "William "L. 8cott, of Erie, the acknowledged champion of Clevelandism in Pennsylvania, wno is interested in the fight for Governor, spent a few days in this city during the week, and while bere looked over the situation with a few of the local leaders of the Democratic party, with reference to the coming meeting; of tbo Democratic State Committee which, is to be held at Harrisburg January 22. Mr. Scott's visit is regarded as significant in view of the announcement that ex United States Senator Wallace, who is said to be in, tbe lead for the Democratia nomi nation for Governor, will return from Eu rope in time to be in attendance at the State Committee, and that be proposed taking a band in the selection of its officers. SCOTT FOB aUTTCHLEB. "While Scott's friends in this city decline to say anything regarding the object of his visit bere, yet in well-informed circles the story goes that Scott bas de clared his preference for the Demo cratic nomination, and it is said to be Congressman William Mutchler, of the Eighth Pennsylvania district, .which, embraces the counties of Monroe.Northamp ton, Pike and Carbon. Mutchler's friends are said to be well advised as to what is being done to make him the candidate. The friends of Senator Wallace are in formed of what is going on, and it is said that steps are being taken to secure the con trol of the State organization. Under the ralei adopted by the last Demo cratic State Convention, tbe State has been divided into separate districts,each of which will have a chairman, who will, of course, be subservient to the regular chairman, but who will be held responsible for the conduct of the election in the counties of their re spective distriets. KISNEB'-WOULD DO. It is said that the Wallace people will not ooject to tne re-etection or unsirman iiisner, although they would prefer that Benjamin P. Meyers, ot Dauphin, or James P. Kerr, of Clearfield, should be placed at the head of the State organization. They will make their fight on the district chairmanship, claiming that the real strength of the party organization centered therein. They appear tobe perfectly- confident of exiSenator Waw la'cVi "nomination for Governor, andaro making every possible arrangement to have the organization put into first-class: shape. A meeting has been called for January- 9 of the present State Executive Committee, at which it ia believed tbe subject will be thoroughly gone over. The present mem bers are "William L.
