REVOLT OF THE STUDENTSr The Remorseless fiihilists are Only Waiting for a Chance. EOULAKGER TO MAKE A PLUKGE In a Desperate Effort to Eetrieve His Fallen Fortunes. THE E1ISEE SIDING THE HIGH HORSE There are many conflicting reports regard ing the sickness of the Czar of all the Bus Bias. It is asserted that the Nihilists had something to do with it. This, of course, is denied by the Government officials. Bou langer's lunds are exhausted, and he may return to France determined to do or die. The talk of the Franco-German alliance has been revived. rBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.! London, April 5. Copyright. The full story of tiie Czar's illness has yet to he told, because no Russian dare telegraph about it on pain of prison, and the mail itself is not considered safe from the ubiqui tous secret police and their agents. It has already become known through underground .channels that His Majesty's indisposition Was sudden and alarming, and that physi cians were brought ii hot haste from St. Petersburg to assist the two court doctors who were in the palace at the time. WILD BUMOKS IN FLENTT. Kumor speaks variously of poison, bombs, daggers, apoplexy, epilepsy, heart disease and suicidal frenzy, the balance of credi bility pointing to the first named cause. The brazen official Russian telegraphic agency which doles out items of socalled news from time to time to the outside world has of course declared that the Czar is in the best of health and that there has been nothing whatever the matter with him. Similar lies were telegraphed with equal effrontery when the Emperor and Empress lay prostrate from nervous and physical chock caused by the Nihilist-planned rail way smash at Borkhi. Much noise is being made by the students in St. Petersburg, Moscow and other large towns in Russia. The youngsters have pluckily protested against the latest re vealed Siberian horrors, and against the continual interference and tyranny of the Government officials in college manage ment. Many of them have been rusticated, and not a few, including several professors, are now in orison as political suspects, with n fair prospect of Siberia. THE BEAL DANGER. But the real danger lor the Czar lies not in the noisy demonstrations of excitable boys, but in the calm, remorseless plotting of the extreme section of the Nihilists, edu cated men who have made up their minds that the regeneration of their country can come only after a social and political cata clysm. Arrests made from time to time, and mysterious suicides and disappearances, prove beyond doubt that the extreme party has adherents in the ranks of the imperial body guards, among the nobility and even in the palaces of the Czar. A select body of them, mostly Russian refugees, but including several English 'women and Englishmen of good repute, met last Monday night in a small room of the Strand "to take important steps." That is all that has been allowed publicly to transpire of the proceedings at this very re markable gathering, but reading between the lines the meeting was probably sum moned to consider important news, for it was on Monday that the Czar was taken ill, atthongh the announcement was not pub lished in London until "Wednesday morn ing. THE CZAE'S NEIGHBOR. Emperor William has been spending a good deal of his time in his study engaged, it is understood, upon the preparation of a speech which he has decided to deliver in person at the opening of the new Reichstag. The speech is to be the finest ever delivered lrom the German throne, and, according to current report, is to contain among other things, yet another essay upon capital and labor. The Kaiser is also credited with the au thorship of a sensational pamphlet just pub lished anonymously in Berlin in which im perial socialism is fully explained and justified. The pamphleteer gravely asserts tnat the Emperor is at the head of a secret Eociety which numbers among its members General Caprivi and the Minister for "War, and has for its chief object "the reconcilia tion of democratic parties alienated by Prince Bismarck." The Emperor sees that the monarchical principle is gradually sinking, but this fact eimply stimulates him to daring deeds. He will "snatch the reins from the hands of the democracy and undertake to regnlate social questions for himself, It was thus that Constantine seized Christendom and made it his own to save a throne endangered by the new doctrine." QDITE A CONTRACT. i But the young Kaiser will be as unselfish .as he will be heroic He proposes to save loot only himself, but all the shaking thrones in Europe, and when he has com- jpleted the operation of rounding up, "So Icialiam will lie dead at his feet like the dragon at the feet of Siegfried." The book lie pitched in a laisetto Key nigniy sug gestive of Kaiser "Wilhelm, and the pro gramme is so melodramatic and fantastic that it may well be the creation of his rest less brain. But for the moment the authorship is dis coverable only by conjecture and inference. The Daily JS'eics is inclined to father it upon .the Kaiser on the grounds, among others, that "the writer betrays a most intimate ac quaintance with much that passed behind the scenes, that he must at least have been inspired by persons in the highest positions, and that he makes use of expressions which the'K-Uer has frequently uttered." The reasons are not exactly conclusive, but they may be reinforced and strengthened during the next few days. NOTHING TO DO NOW. Prince Bismarck, after an unnsually exciting birthday, is engaged in sorting out and arranging his presents and answer ing telegrams and letters of congratulation, a task which will occupy him for several days, after which he will find himself in the novel position of having nothing particular to do. Friends fear that idleness will kill him or drive him mad, and would like to put him in the Reichstag. His presence in Parliament would, it is believed, act as a check upon the impetuous Kaiser. Ten years ago the Prince publicly declared that if ever he resigned office he would speak his mind as occasion required from a private, member's seat in the Reichstag, but this is the year 1890 and Kaiser "Wilhelm, the second, reigns in Germany. Bismarck's dnty to posterity is obviously forthwith to commence writing his memoirs. A PEACEFUL VM. One Jinn Who Thinks the Fall ot Bismarck May Lead to n Franco-German Alli ance A General Feeling of Uncertainty. IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. Pa eis, April 5. Colonel Stoffel, author of the famous pamphlet proposing an alli ance between France and Germany, sees in the resignation of Bismarck a way opened to realization of his scheme. The German Emperor, he thinks, is anxious for the res toration of friendship with France, and that the ultimate result of the labor conference will show whether or not that alliance will be brought nbont in this generation. Bis marck, he says, was for peace, but only at the expense of those under his iron hand. But the young Emperor is of a different tem perament He knows too well there is noth ing to be gained by oppressing France, whicn will some day rise up in her might and endeavor to regain her lost provinces, the consequences of which wonld be terrible. All Europe would be involved in one of the bloodiest and most cruel wars history ever recorded. The young Emperor of Ger many, though a brave soldier, is not am bitious for war. Hence, being emancipated from the influence of the Iron Chancellor, he will be disposed to deal graciously with a nation like France, whose sole ambition is to maintain and develop what she possesses. He thinks there will never be a general dis armament in Europe so long as the Czar of Rnssia lives, who, like a bird of prey, awaits his chance to pounce upon his victim. The Czar would be master ot Europe and nothing would give him a better oppor tunity than a war between France and Germany. France sent her delegates to the Berlin conference. That was a Uep toward reconciliation, and may yet result in a friendly meeting between the President of the Republic and the young Emperor of Germany, which meeting, if happily it should take place, cannot fail to have the desired result. The ragged Russian bear will then be left to growl alone in its own cold climate. The Colonel is of the opinion that Bis marck's retirement is only for a time, and that circumstances will again force him upon the young Emperor. M. Paul De Cassagnac says that the French people'wonld rejoice at the fail of tbeir moit ferocious enemy, were it not for the fact that the un certainty of the future weighs as heavily upon France as it does upon Germany. AN AMERICAN BANKER'S FATE. He ! Thrown From n Cnrriaso Near Monte Carlo nnd May Die. JBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. 1 London. April 5. J. S. Morgan, the American banker, is lying almost at the point of death in his residence, Villa Hen rietta, Monte Carlo. Morgan was driving from Beaulieu to Monte Carlo on Thursday, and when near the village of Eze, where the road and railway run parallel, the horses were frightened by a train and bolted. The coachman brought up the team after a short run, but in the meantime Morgan had jumped from the carriage. He was found in the road insensible, suf fering from concussion of the brain. His forehead was also badly cut, his lips were split, his nose severely injured and his left wrist broken. He has recovered somewhat, but as he is 77 years of ace grave fears are entertained for his recoverv. JOHN BULL NOT SO SLOW. A Sharp Trick of the British Merchants to Save Poatacc. rBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. 1 LONDON, April 5. Yankees might learn a few sharp tricks from the simple and straight-forward British merchant. It has just been discovered that some large firms dealing in popular articles, who send out millions of circulars per year, post these cir culars in Germany to the populace of Lon don and the provinces. The reason is that it only costs half a penny to send an un sealed envelope in Germanv, as in America, while in England the half-penny postage only carries a wrapper open at both ends. The result is that the German Postoffice gets the money and the English Postoffice gets the work, and the thrifty British mer chant saves a half-penny on each of his cir culars. ENGLISH INVESTORS CHANGED By the Partial Chance In the Policy of the Rending; Rond. tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.! London, April 5. The compromise with reference to the Philadelphia and Reading directorate has raised hopes here that this property will be more remuneratively man aged in future. So far as the stockholders are concerned, the Times says: "In future it is hoped that the real owners of the prop erty will be properly represented on the directorate, and that Mr. Corbiu will no longer be absolute, either in the disposal of the company's resources or in the determi nation of its policy. "What steps may be necessary at the next election for the Presi dency of the company will depend on the results of the administration of tbe road during the current year." HER EHEDMAT1SM BETTER.

Queen Victoria con tinues to take long drives, often in a donkey chaise, in the neighborhood of Aix les Bains, and her rheumatism is steadily sub siding. In her absence the ancient royal charities, known as the royal maundy, were distributed on Thursday in the Chapel Royal, Vhitehall, bv the Lord High Al moner to 71 men and 71 women, the number of each sex corresponding with the Queen's age. The quaint ceremony has been fully de scribed in The Dispatch, and has not altered for hundreds of years. Protecting Their Investment!. Beblin, April 5.

General Boalanger In Broken In Fane ir Not In Spirit Ho May Make a Sadden Appearance in Inc. French Cnpltal. tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.l Pabis, April 5. The conference in Jersey and the report that General Boulauger may return to France, have set Paris again talk ing abont the brave General. Indeed the chief of the parti National is nothing if not sensational, and he is of the opinion that he is never sensational unless he keeps moving along. These are pressing reasons assigned by his enemies for his taking instant action, the most potent of which is that he is in the throes of poverty. It is true that General Boulauger is in a dreadful financial strain, so much so that he was not only compelled to accept 4,000 fraucs accruing from a recent concert given, as stated, for the benefit of those of the Bou langist party "who had lost their places or otherwise became financially involved through devotion to the cause of revision," but was recently obliged to give the Duchess D'TTses his famous black horse, and make over his personal effects to Madame De Bon nonain, in order to meet his debts at Jersey, where since he left London, his expenses have been 100 francs a day. In these circumstances something was to be done, and he is now preparing to play his last card either to win or lose iu the coming municipal elections. Hence the conference at St. Helier. General Bou langer's advisers are of the opinion that the young Duke of Orleans will yet be pardoned and in that event the General is prepared to enter Paris at an opportune time and give himself up to the authorities that his friends may demand amnesty for him upon the same grounds upon which the Duke may yet be pardoned. THE WAE IN DAHOMEY. French Losses Reported to be Serious and Another Expedition Necessary. BY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, April 5. The French losses in Dahomey are more serious than has yet been officially admitted. This is unfortunate for the new Government,as the Boulangists are certain to make a violent attack upon its policy. It was a similar attitude in refer ence to Tonquin which brought such odium upon the Ferry Government, and a persis tency in thus withholding information may well bring upon Freycinet the fate which befell Ferry. Meantime another expeditionary force for Dahomey is being talked of as something certain to take place. A MILLIONAIRE SUICIDES. Ho Is Depressed by tho Denth of HI Favor ite Daughter. Chicago, April 5. Marcus C. Stearns, one of Chicago's oldest and wealthiest resi dents, attempted suicide at his handsome Michigan avenue residence to-day. He fired four bullets into his head, producing wounds from which recovery is impossible. One shot fired into the mouth almost split the tongue in two. The members of the family profess abso lute ignorance beyond the fact that for some time Mr. Stearns has been in depressed spirits. The four shots were heard-in rapid succession and a moment later Mr. Steatns was found stretched on his back on' the floor in his room, his head inji pool ot bjood. It is surmised that his depression was due to the recent death of bfc favoritt daughter, the wife of ex-Mayor Carter H. Harrison. Mr. Stearns was one of the leading mem bers of the Board of Trade and has an es tate worth perhaps 51,500,000. ' MORMON APOSTLES PREACH. They Sar They Are bailing: Safely on the Good Ship Zion. Salt Lake, April S. In the Mormon Conference to-day. Apostle John W. Taylor said: "I expect to witness much opposition against this people, but I expect to see the Kingdom of God pass safely through it all." Apostle Heber J. Graut said: "It is not the visitation of the angels' association with Prophet Joseph Smith or any of the mani festations of the spirit of God which causes men to be faithful. It is their own faithful ness in keeping the commandment of God." Apostle John Henry Smith said: "As has been said, there need be no fears regard ing the fate and destiny of the work. "With regard to individuals it is different. Men are liable to step aside from the path of duty. The mission of the work of God, however, cannot be prevented in its accom plishments.

A TRAIN OF ELOQUENCE Behind Dr. Depew That Stretches From New York to "Florida. rSFECIAL TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.l New Yoek, April 5. Dr. Chauncey M. Depew arrived home from his trip to Flor ida to-night in his private car, tacked on behind the Congressional limited express. He was accompanied by Mrs. Depew, bis son and niece and Mr. Duval, his private secretary. He does not look like tbe grip stricken invalid who went South for his health a few weeks ago. He said on arriv ing that he felt like an athlete. "My trip down," he continued, "was a journey on the flat of my back. My coming home was a succession of three speeches and a dinner a day. I have left a train of elo quence behind me that stretches from here to Florida. Phew, it's cold, isn't it? It was 84 in St. Augustine when I left there." A TRIFLE EXAGGERATED. Cmtom Official!

NEW Yoke, April Collector Erhardt said this morning that he had received no information regarding the reported swindles of the Government by the glove exporters in Germany. In regard to the report that United States Yice Consul Diedrich, at Leipsic, had writ ten to "Washington, stating that he had dis covered a scheme whereby German glove manufacturers had swindled this Govern ment out of millions of dollars, Special Agent Tingle, of the New York Custom House, says that such letters are common and generally exaggerated.

LUMBEEMEN WANT CHEAP PORK. Canadian! Protest Stronsly Asainit In- created TnrlfTon American Hoes. Ottawa, April 5. Lumber merchants and workingmen, irrespective of political party, are up in arms against the recent in crease in the duty on pork.

IT MAI BE EXCITING. Recent Events Add Interest to the Republican Contest for THE DOMINATION FOlf GOVERNOR. General Hastings Will Surely Stay in the Fight to the Finish. QUAY AND FITLEfi TO CONFER AGAIN. Emery's Radical Sjpech is the Snlject of a Great Deal of Comment. Philadelphia politicians now believe that the battle for the Republican nomination for Governor will be close and exciting. Opinions as to tbe effect or Emery's attack on Delamater differ widely. General Hast ings again states that he is after nothing but the Governorship. rf FECIAL TELEOBJJt TO THE DISPATCH.l Philadelphia, April 5. The refusal of "United States Senator Quay to interfere in the contest for the Republican nomina tion for Governor, the knowledge that General Hastings, one of the leading candi dates in the race, has refused to allow the use of his name in connection with the office of Assistant Secretary of "War, and many reports and rumors has started the impression among the local workers that the contest for Governor may yet become ex citing. The friends of General Hastings, who recognize that the Delamater managers have succeeded in securing the election of a large majority of the delegates who have been already chosen, are endeavoring to create a public sentiment in the General's behalf. They have started in to work. In so many words they say that Senator Delamater can only count in his favor those delegates who have Deen instructed for him, and that .the large body of uninstructed delegates stand ready to support General Hastings for the nomination should Senator Quay declare in his favor. THE EMERY EPISODE. The attack made upon the record of Sena tor Delamater by ex-State Senator Lewis Emery, Jr., at Bradford last night, caused considerable talk in local political circles to-day. The stalwart Republicans declare that it will do Senator Delamater but little harm, while the more conservative Repub licans incline to the opinion that it may serve to weaken Delamater's candidacy. The friends of Senator Delamater in this city charge that Emery has been for years a political agitator, and that many of the wrongs which he imagines are being done exist only in his imagination. They declare that it is because Delamater's friends are opposing Emery's candidacy for the nomi nation for Congress in the district that the attack has now been made, that if the charges are true they should have been pub lished long ago. In any event nothing will be done bv the local Republicans until after Senator Quay and Mayor Fitler have had their second talk, which is expected to be had some time during the coming week. When Senator Quay called on the Mayor, f'hii residence, daring his stay-litre, they talked the situa tion over, but agreed that nothing should be done nntil they had the opportunity ot talk ing at greater length. Senator Quay said that he expected to return at an early day when some line of action will be agreed upon regarding the party's policy. BATTLING TO WET. Senator Quay during his stay here, in con versation with some of the local leaders, in quired very particularly regarding the con dition of the party organization in this city and declared that nothing must be left un done to have the party in good condition for the fall contst. Said he: "We are battling to win and must pay close attention to the necessary party work." "While there have been large Republican majorities rolled up in this city during the last two campaigns Senator Quay feels that the democrats will De in better trim and fighting condition for the fall contest than they were for either the last spring' and fall elections. He feels that the Republican majority in this citv as a matter ot course will be greatly reduced. Chairman Porter and Collector Martin, who have control of the city organ ization, they being credited with the leader ship, are alive to the situation and are start ing in to work. Assessors' lists of the city have been placed on file in the Republican headquarters, and clerks to do the necessary detail work are now being secured. A num ber ot the Republican ward leaders have announced themselves as candidates for the honor of being elected as State delegates. A strong delegation of active workers may be safely looked for at the State Con vention to assist in naming tbe candidate for Governor. The leaders are also interest ing themselves in the choosing of candidates for the nomination for representatives. A successor to the present Senator Cameron is to be chosen by the incoming Legis lature.and the leaders regard it as important that none but those who are' known to be Stalwarts shall be elected. As a result nearly all of the old members will be re turned. G0TERN0R OR NOTHING. General Hailing! Stolen Plainly Oil Posi tion in the Gubernatorial Fight. tSPECIAL TELEflBAM TO THE DISPATCH.1 Bellefonte, April 5. General D. H. Hastings, who returned home last evening, stated positively to-day that he was in the race for Gubernatorial honors, and would not accept any other office that may be offered to him. He says he will take the stump for the fortunate candidate, "but I think," he says, "that I have a very good show, as I have the popular sentiment of the people. As for the delegates, no candi date has man j, and there are a good many to be elected yet." Captain Kress, a prominent politician of Clinton county who is spending Sunday witn uenerai Hastings, stated that he was pretty certain of Clintou's delegates. A LIMBLESS POLITICAL LEAGCE. Those Without Armi or Lens Want a Share or the Offices. rSFECIAL TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.l Pottsville, April 5. Arthur Jones, boss at Turkey Bun Colliery, was in town to-day working up his limbless league. Ac cording to his story there are 2,700 voters in Schuylkill county who have either an arm or leg off, and his idea is to incorporate them into a political league, which shall demand a share of offices in the county. Mr. Jones p'uts this share at one third and advances some reasons why the maimed should have political preference. He reports that in his travels throughout the county he has met with much encour agement, j But lew of those whom he approached have failed to surrender to the power of his reasoning. Just what attitude the limbless league will take this tall will only be de fined after a convention has been called, and this will be decided when 2,000 signa- tures have Deen obtained.

SPECIAL TELEQKAM TO THE DISPATCH. New ,Yoek, April 5. Among the pas sengers on the train on the Culver route, which left Coney Island at 1250 to-day, were Dr. Hill, of Gravesend, and Mrs. Morey, of Brighton Place. Mrs. Morey immediately began talking to Dr. Hill, and the conversation attracted the attention of all the passengers. High words were indulged in, anU the woman up braided the doctor in strong language for some injury which, she said, he bad done her. The doctor, endeavored to get rid of her by going into another car, but she fol lowed him. "When the train reached Gravesend the doctor got off, lollowed by Mrs. Morey. She kept talking to him all the time. As the train started up again he thought to elude her by jumping on, bnt she also got on. Both entered the same car, and the woman's anger seemed to have in creased. Just as the train reached the next station Mrs. Morey drew from beneath her cloak a billy about a foot long with a heavy wooden ball at the end of it. She raised the club above her head and dealt the doctor a blow between the eyes, cutting a gash in his forehead. The doctor only saved -Jihimself from falling by grasping the back ot the car seat. Me then Beized the woman, and after a struggle succeeded in getting the weapon aw3y from her. Mrs. Morey then attacked him with her hands. The fracas caused great excitement. The train hands hurried in, and succeeded in parting the combatants before any more damage was done. Dr. Hill's face was covered with blood, which was pouring from the wound on his forehead. His wounds were washed and he remained in the car until the train reached Brooklyn. Mrs. Morey was led from the car by the trainmen at King's High way, where her injuries were attended to by Dr. Van Click. She was found to have received two scalp wounds in the back of her head, where she said the doctor had strnck her. She returned to her home in Brighton Place bv the next train. The trouble between Dr. Hill and Mrs. Morey was caused by a call which the doc tor made at Mrs. Morey's house abont a week ago. Her family, it is said, sent for him to prescribe for her. Mrs. Morey said that she was not sick and that there was nothing the matter with her. She seemed to look on the doctor's visit as an intrusion, and was very angry with him for calling. It seemed to prey on her mind and she has met the doctor and upbraided him a number of times since To-day, it is said, she waylaid him and followed him into the car. ARRESTED HIS OWN WIFE. A Special Officer at Chester Displays a Great Amonnt of Zenl. .SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Chester, April 5. William Beale was, some six weeks ago, sworn in as a special police officer by Mayor Coates to do duty at National Hall. Beale is a young man weighing abont 130 pounds, and his wife will probably tip the scales at 90 pounds. On Thursday night the couple quarreled and Beale threw the con tents of a teacup int his wife's face, where upon tbe woman slapped his face. Beale went to Alderman Gamin's office and se cured a warrant for the arrest of his wife on the charge of assault and battery. As there was no constable present the Alderman ad vised that the warrant be held until the following day, but Beale informed him that he was a special officer and would serve the paper himself. He accordingly took it home and waited until his wife returned from a dance when he read the warrant and notified her that she was his prisoner. He conducted her toward the police station bnt tnrned her over to Officer Bell, whom he met on the way. To day the woman gave bond in tbe snm of $200. The occurrence has created some talk in this city, no other case being known of a man arresting his own wife. A FULL BAND IN THE CHOIR. The Result of a Bitter Rivalry Between Two Methodist Churches. rSPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUE DISPATCH.1 .Noefolk, Va., April 5. There has been for some time a bitter rivalry between'the Grandby Street and the Cumberland Street Methodist churches, which has now become very interesting. Grandby street chnrch had the call in popularity until tbe Cum berland street people secured an eloquent preacher in Dr. W. G. Starr, and a line choir director in Newton Fitz. Then the tide turned and Cumberland street church filled up while the pews in Grandby street became empty in the same measure. Then Rev. Dr. Tudor, of Granby street, became aggressive, and directed his choir master to encage a fine brass band. He has secured 15 pieces, and to-morrow morning the church-goers in Granby street will en joy the novelty of a full band in a Metho dist choir. There will be a big turn out. MUST GET OFF THE FENCE. BUhop Goodsell Explains tho Chnrch! Position on the Liquor Question. New York, April 5. At the Methodist Episcopal Conference to-day, Bishop Good sell, in his address, said ministers should not sit on the fence waiting to make up their minds which Way to go. Politicians were experienced: they said one thing and meant another. Methodists had no business to resort to such measures. The liquor traffic was roundly denounced. The Metho dist Church, Bishop Goodsell said, had no favors to ask from the liquor interests. It was eminently proper that the Metho dist Church should take the lead in labor questions, as it was a church nearest the people; in tact, it was of the people and was for all classes. The Bishop was applauded in regard to the progressive policy of the church in its attitude toward the liquor traffic. BOTH DEAD SHOTS. Two Kentucky Men Qnarrcl and Kill Each Other Simultaneously. Somerset, Kr., April 5. Last night James Sloan, while making a settlement at Greenwood with Robert Burgen, a colored man, became involved in a quarrel and tried to shoot Burgen. The cap failed to explode and Burgen fled to a saloon, where he" was followed by John Sloan, a brother of James. There both' Burgen and John Sloan drew re volvers and fired simultaneously, and both fell dead. Sloan belonged to one of the best families in the neighborhood, and the tragedy has caused much excitement. A CLOUD-BURST AT lTflACA Inundate! the City and Put! a Dampener on the Railroad Service.

SLICES OP CARTILAGE REMOVED. Appendages That Once Flapped in the Wind Now Behave Nicely. THE WOUNDS HEALED UP IN TEN DAIS. Photographs, Before and After, Excite tbe Medial Students. Charles N. Forrester, of Camden, N. J., was the butt of ridicule on account of his long and limber ears. One of the Jefferson College facnlty performed an operation, and in ten days the young man appeared among his friends with handsome ears that do not flap. (SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1 Philadelphia, April 5. Two photo graphs have been hung up in the Jefferson Medical College. They are portraits with out faces. They show the back of one man's head. The hair and the conformation prove that the two pictures represent the same in dividual; and yet there is a striking differ ence, for in one case the ears are normal, while in the other they stand out disfigur inglv from tbe sides of the head. The students of this orthodox old college are having fun over these photographs, and one of their whims is to decide by vote who, among themselves, is the owner of the unrevealed face. The explanation of the divergent ears is that they grew donkey fashion, but, by surgery, they have been reduced to the proportions of human comeliness. The photographic lens was per mitted to take a rear view of the ears be fore their reduction and again after they had been shortened, but it was not deemed considerate to. portray the face of the man and thus subject him to a possibly dis agreeable publicity. DETAILS OF THE OPERATION". The improvement in that pair of ears is regarded as a novelty iu surgery, and thatis why tbe photographs, before and after, are placed in tbe college. Modern surgery has not hesitated to cut a new nose out of the cheek, to loop up a drooping eyelid, or en graft tbe skiu of one person upon another, but it has not until now given a man's ears a setback. To Dr. William W- Keen, of Jefferson College, came a brother physician to repair a job that had been badly done by nature's prentice hand, so to speak. The young man, for he was only 19, was all ears; that is, his ears were not only abnormally large, but they flapped in a painfully absurd manner. The surgeon proceeded to lay bare the car tilage by removing the skin from the pos terior surface of the auricle, and then ex cised a long, narrow piece of tbe cartilage, Y shaped, in cross sections, as if he had run a miniature plow over the ridge on the back of the ear. Great care was taken not to cnt clear through, and thus cause a scar on the anterior surface. The edges of the cartilage were then drawn together by cat gut stitche3, in addition to those in the skin. ,FBOMXOJJO TO SHOBT. This was done while the young' man was etherized. He Vent to .sleep with long ears and he awoke with short ears very sore ones and so intricately fastened into posi tion that for some nights he had to sleep flat on his back. But when the wound had healed, and the plasters were removed, he found himself possessed of symmetrical and fair-sized ears. "From time immemorial," said Prof. Martine to your correspondent, after de scribing tbe operation, "large and promi nent ears have been regarded as unfortunate deformities. They are altogether too sug gestive. But no matter how mortifying to the owner's vanity they were something which he had to wear summer and winter. There was but one way to hide them, and that to allow the hair to grow long. Thirty years ago, it was impossible to tell whether a woman had ears or not, the prevailing mode of dressing the hair hid them com pletely. Faces of rare beauty haye been marred by ears too big. Pauline Bonaparte was a victim of auricular superabundance, and it always served to humiliate her when mentioned by her rivals: ""What a superb beauty, but look at her ears!" A WOMAN IN THE CASE. "Had she lived in this age, this grievous burden could have been lifted from her shoulders, or, more strictly speaking, from her head. Is the operation serious? Not very. Considerable blood was lost, but that can be obviated in future operations, either by tbe freezing process, or by placing a long, thin clamp on the ear. The patient stayed in bed only one day, but it may be there was a woman in the case that he was so anxious to present himself to his sweetheart, in a new and improved form, that he couldn't wait even 48 hours. He was obliged to carry the surgical embroid ery for ten days, and then it was ripped out The operation was entirely successful, tbe young man's ears being now close up against his head, but only those who have seen these 'before' and 'alter' photographs can form a correct idea of the improvement. It is simply astounding." "And who is the man?". "O, I really couldn't tell you that It is a professional secret" THE MAN FOUND. But tbe patient was discovered in the per son of Charles N. Forrester, of Camden, just across the river iu New Jersey. Mr. Forrester is a graduateof Princeton College, and is now studying for entry into the min istry. "I don't mind the publication of my name at all," he remarked. "Why should I? My friends were all aware ot my big ears, and of my good riddance of them. They were not only a deformity, but they seriously disabled me for my chosen career. Of course there is a jocose view to take of the matter, but nobody can be better humored than I am about it, for I am now at least presentable. The operation didn't make an uely man handsome, but it save me a good pair of ears." LEFT NOTHING BUT A HOLE. Dynamite Explodes, Annihilating; a Building and Killing Two Men. Bastow, N. Y., April 5. A terrific ex plosion shook the buildings and broke the window panes at the Bartow City Island and Pelham bridge this afternoon. A build ing of Ditman's Dynamite Works in Bay Chester had blown up, killing James H. Kelmeir and Max Schultz. The explosion left a hole 6 feet deep and 20 feet long where the building stood. The dynamite works turn out dynamite cartridges used in excavation work on the new aqueduct. HELP FOR MRS. PARNELL. Trenton Clilzpns Propoie to Lift the Mort en (to on Her Home. Bobdentown, N. J., April 5. There is a movement on foot in the city of Trenton to render some kind of substantial assist ance to Mrs, Delia T. S. Parnell, of this city. "Old Ironsides," the home of Mrs. Par nell, is heavily mortgaged. Her friends here afforded her temporary relief, but some thing more must be done, and the Trenton people propose to do it BOSTON BEER COMBINE. All of the BIb Concern! to be Consoli dated, With SS,000,000 Capital Toll li Not a British Sjodl cnte. However. rSFECIAL TELEQHAX TO THE DISPATCH. Boston, April 5. Several Boston lager beer brewers propose to form a pool with a capital of 8,000,000, and to petition 'he New Jersey Legislature for a act of incor poration as the New England Breweries. The manufacture of beer will go on abont the sameas now, the present proprietors act ing as managers of their establishments. The pool will be governed by a president, treasurer, secretary, board of directors and council, who will have general direction of tbe outside details or the business. The profits will accrue to each concern in about the same proportion as at present. Prices, it is thought, will remain about the same. There are about 22 breweries in Boston and vicinity, but only five or six of the large ones are in the proposed deal. The leaders of the move are Mr. James M. Smith, Jr., of this city, and Mr. Samuel TJntemeyer, of New York. Mr. Smith ex plained the scheme as follows: "The pro posed consolidation of Boston breweries is not an English syndicate scheme by any means. Boston parties are interested in it. and Boston money will be used to carry it out Of course, an Englishmen misht invest monev in the company, but there is no 'syndicate from over the water at present. There is no trust and no plan to increase prices. The idea is to mutually benefit each other in the conduct of tbe business, and things will go on about as they have before. These En glishmen are not offering such fabulous prices as to secure any particularly good paying property hereabouts. They are un willing to pay very much for the good will or business of a concern and want about CO per cent of the total sum paid for a business in clear assets. Take a company with a capital of 5200,000, or a plant that is valued at that sum, that is making $60,000 annually, an offer of $330, 000 or a little over is nothing to induce the proprietor to sell out. The new company will be incorporated in New Jersey, because it would be impossible to get an act of in corporation for any brewery concern through the Legislature of Massachusetts." Mr. TJntemeyer said that the consolida tion would soon be effected and New York capitalists would hold a good deal of the stock. General Patrick A. Collins will be one of the directors. SENATORIAL AMBITIONS. Another Railroad Maa Who I Anxious to Tako Stanford'! Place. rSPECIAL TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.l San Francisco, Cal., April 5. Creed Haymond, who for years has been attorney for the Southern Pacific Company, has re signed, and to-day the reasons for bis giving up a salary of $25,000 are coming to the surface. The story which gains most credence is to the effect that Haymond will succeed Stanford in the United States Senate. This is not at all unlikely. Stanford is ambitious to become President of the United States, and if his desire is not satisfied he will probably devote himself to his University, at Palo Alta. If he runs for Senator, he will meet with very determined opposition, and he does not care to run the chances of defeat. Haymond, on the other hand, ha3 nothing in a political way to lose, and would serve railroad interests at Washington exactly -as well. He is a shrewd lawyer and a clever politician, and has had experience in all of the tricks of' the trade. While waiting for nomination he will probably serve the Southern Pacific as "one of the counsel," at f 15,000 or. $20, 000 a year. Stanford arrived from Washington to-day and it is rumored that his visit has some connection with the change. IT MAI NOT BE LEGAL. Rhode Island Republican! Will Teit the Election of Democratic Representatives. Newport, K. L, April 5. The supple mentary election to-day for First and Fourth Representatives resulted in the election of two Democrats William P. Clarke, by 73 majority, and Andrew K. Minn by 33 majority. It is possible that the election is not legal as it was held nnder the old voting system, instead of under the provisions of the new ballot law. If the House of Representa tives is Democratic, as it probably is, the Democrats will hardly raise the issue, but tbe Republicans may appeal to the Su preme Court to decide as to their legality. NINE HOURS A DAI'S WORK. Boston Marble Cotters Get tho Old Wages for Less Honri. Boston, April 6. Three of the largest marble manufacturers in this city, James W. Tufts, Bowker, Torrey & Co., and A. D. Puffer & Sons, have notified their employes that on and after June 1 they will pay ten hours' wages for nine hours' work. The marble cutters are very much pleased with the outlook and believe that their demands for a nine-hoar day will be generally granted without recourse to a strike, CONTENTS OF THE ISSUE.

MABTliV pZ ROUNDED. ? Colored Toughs Knock w aWoman and a Boy. A GAM OP EIGHT AEEESTED John O'Hara, aged 18, a Baltimore and Ohio Bailrcad employe, was almost in stantly killed last night while watching a colored parade on Fifth avenue, near Old avenue. He was shot by a pistol in the hands of one of a crowd of five drunken colored men. Martin Fahey was also shot, but not seriously wounded. The alleged murderers were arrested this morning. A scene of excitement took place in the Central station last night about 10 o'clock, when a young man rushed in breathlessly, and pantingly informed Sergeant Eobert Gray that a murder had been committed up Fifth avenne. The place where the crime occurred, be said, was opposite 212 Fifth avenue, and a negro had shot two wbi;e men, one of whom was dead. At once the wagon was called, and every station in the city was notified immediately to be on the lookout for drunken negroes. Detectives Conlson, McTighe, Eobert Bobinson, Shore and, in fact, every avail able man were out withic a few winutes, and Coulson landed the first colored man, who proved his innocence as far as the shooting was concerned, and he was turned loose. About every ten minutes afterward an officer turned in with an inebriated negro in hand. HOW THE CEIME OCCCBBED. It was just at 9:45 o'clock. The parade of the Grand Colored Comniandery of Ma sons of Pennsylvania was passing SIc Nulty's livery stable, 214 Fifth avenue. It had been down at tbe Baltimore and Ohio depot to receive the Grand African Com mandery, of Wilmington, Del., which came here to participate in a colored Masonic cel ebration to be held to-day. Following the procession was a large crowd of negroes. In front of JfcNulty's sta ble five of them stopped. Their names are given as "Monk" Harris, a son of Turnkey Harris, of the Central station; Will Johnson, WushWeims, Charle3 Gance and a young man named Lightner, 27 years old. Thi3 crowd was raising considerable dis turbance, and in the crowd Mrs. Carroll, who lives in the rear of 214 Fifth avenue, was knocked over and tramped upon. Her arm was badly bruised, and she was assisted to her home. At the same time one of the negroes knocked a boy into the gutter. This excited the crowd, and someone said: -t!The negro who knocked1 that lady over ought to be shot. .Negroes take up too much room, any way 1" MTBDEB AT THE FIBST FIBE. This brought back an insulting answer from the colored men. Then one of the negroes drew a revolver and fired three times into the crowd. The first bullet struck John O'Hara, aged 18, in the left breast, and penetrated his heart. The boy staggered out into the street. The next in stant he cried: "My God, I am shotl" and fell forward on his face, dying. The second shot did not injure anyone, so far as learned, but the third hit Martin Fahey in tbe right shoulder. The ball glanced downward, only inflicting a little flesh wound. The boy was, of course, much shocked, but he was able to walk away. The dying boy, O'Hara, was carried into McNulty's stable. Almost immediately Dr. Moyer was on the scene. He started to examine the wound, but before the clothing was removed the boy was dead. He did not live quite five minutes after be was shot, and was unconscious all the time. In and about the stable the scene was an exciting one. Crowds thronged the side walk and tried to get in the door, but were held back by the police. O'Hara's two sisters were sent for and arrived jnst a few minutes after the boy died. They threw themselves upon the body, and their cries were heart rending. They begged Dr. Moyer to say the boy was not dead, and conld not believe that he was, as his body was still warm. The negro who did the shooting was a tall, slim man, with apparently a tinge of white blood in his veins. As soon as the shooting was done the negroes started on the run down Fifth avenue. THE GANG ESCAPES. A young man named Joseph Freyvogel, who was an eye witness to the shooting, ran after the fleeing party and saw the men dis appear in Shannon's court, just beyond Old avenue. He lost them there, and started down to Central station to notify the police. Every officer about the station was at once sent to the scene of the murder, and the search for tbe five colored men was begun within 15 minutes after the murder was committed. Seven or eight negroes were arrested, only to be released when taken to Central station. At 10:15 o'clock Officer Diehl, on duty at Fifth and Wylie avennes, was fortunate enough to catch one of the parties, named Charles Ganz. At Central station be gava the names of the party, as given above, and said the shooting had been done by Light ner, who lives on Boberts street, and who is described as being tall and slim, wearing a brown overcoat, black derby hat and dark striped trousers that were rather tight. In spector McAleese immediately started in pur suit of the murderer with the expectation of having him before morning. Superintendent O'Mara stationed officers at each of tbe depots, iu order to prevent the fugitive leaving by train. Word was also sent along the line to arrest all colored men found loitering about the streets.' At 10:30 o'clock the almost heart-broken sisters were sent home in a carriage, and the body of their brother was also taken to his late residence, at 23 Forbes street, WHO THE VICTIM WAS. Young O'Hara was 18 years old and was employed in the freight depot of the Balti more and Ohio Bailroad. His father was a flagman ou the Pennsvlvania Bailroad, and was killed at the Liberty street crossing about eight years ago. Since then his mother has died and he has been living with his sister, who is a dressmaker. His other sister is married to Mr. Gleason, who was formerly manager of the Casino Kink, Alle gheny. Martin Fahey, the other boy who was shot, lives at 153 Devillirs street. He is the son of Thomas Fahey, a brick layer. When a Dispatch reporter paid a visit to his home the boy had not returned, and his mother was almost wild with griet. News had reached her that her son had been shot and was not expected to live. She went into hysterics, and her children were trying hard to restore her. She said her oldest son bad been killed nine years before in the Ander son Steel Works, and tbe news that her youngest boy had met a similar fate had completely prostrated her. The wounded boy came home before midnight. MBS. CABBOLL'S STORY. Mrs. Carroll, the woman who was knock d Continues! on Sixth Fagu iwn . - ? -"- -J- ll lll HJsfaWSsiraiHBSgujHjuHlil!
