"Notbini: what ever will be done," said Governor Pattison to-n:bt when asked wbat disposition he would make of the application for the re spite of Joseph Nicely, who, with his brother I.ivid, will be hanged at Somerset to-morrow. A letter has been received in this citv from the clergyman who bai been iiiiiiisterins; to the spiritual wants of David Nicelv, which, while it denies the state ment that the murderer had expressed his intention to confess, conveys the impression that a confession will be forthcoming; when all bope i'f a tay of execution shall have disappeared. It also justifies the interpreta tion that the minister believes him guilty. Warned of. an Attempted Kescup. A dispatch from Somerset says: At 8:30 tn-night a telegram was received from a well-known citizen from Ligonier, saying: "Look out for a rcscuin-; pirty to-night" The dispatch was duplicated, one going to Shenfl Good and the other to Attorney Kooser the principal attorney for the prose cution.

Mr. Hana alr. a Dunkard preacher, is to officiate at the funeral. 1 Is confidently expected br many here that 1'ave Nicel) will make a confession to-day. Many newspaper men and trati:ers are arriv ing to-da) in anticipation of the execution to monoH, and there is much hustling to procure nasses. Four correspondents representing Baltimore papers have been here since yester daj. Dare wrote a private letter this afternoon and upon being asked if that wis the last he bad to communicate, replied that be did not know He knelt m prarer this afternoon by himelf. Rev. Mr. Granger intends spending the evening with 1.1m until a late hour. Still I'lajlng at Insanitj Dave ana Joe both ate a heart r supper, Joe eating very heartilt. Joe still keeps up the insanity dodge, altbnugh coniderably modined from his former efforts. There are already this eveninc 1,000 strangers in town. All preparations are uncle tor the hanging of both men. Lawyer Coffroth, for the condemned men. continues to circulate back and forth to the hi erifTs oflice in a mtenous manner, but notbtng develops through him so far. "1 irouih the courtesy of Sheriff Good," sai'l a reporter. "I was admitted to the jail, ami a more pitiful sight could not be imagined. In one cell it David Nicely, with his spiritual dn-er. Rev. C. W Granger, engaged in devo tional exercises. In the cell immediately ad joining was Joseph Nicely, who is in a terrible condition, borne people seem to think be is feigning in-anitv. hut anyone who looks at him will have rhi thought dispelled Hisnt tnrne. General Koumz, wasthere at the time, and tried to get him to speak. Joe would not look up, and went about the cell in an aimless waj. picking at the iron rims as if he were try ing to see some way of escape. He would go to the washsiand and endeavor to pull it up. and then he would go to the chair. lie seemed to beobliious of everything surrounding him, and If he is not insane I never saw a crazy mau." t ont Recognize Ills Brother. This moraine David expressed a desire to see hi brother. It has been four months since they have seen one another, and the sane krotber was terj anxioui to see the one who will suffer death with him. He was taken ont of his cell to that of Joe's. Dave look6d at his brother for a minute as If dazed, and then said: "Joe, won't iou 6peak to me?' No response came and agaiu Dave spoke, saying "Joe wo onli have a short tunc to live Won't you peak just once? Don's you know uk? I am your brother." The man seemed to neither hear nor heed. David then plared h.s arm around his brother's neck and Kissed him. Tears were ill bis Aes. and with a pitiful look requested the bheri'ff in le id him back to his cell. It is now evident that the Nicely family have given up all hopes of a reprieve. Mrs. Kate Nicely, wife of Dae, on Saturday last dispoieu of all her propem in Ligonier township, West moreland counti, and last evening, with her three children, took her departure for Ohio, where the will make her future home, and in hopes of getting awaj from tho disgrace brought upon her by her recreant husband, wbom she had not seen since the trial, as she ra refused to go to see him or have anything to do in the vrij of securing a commutation or reprieve.

The Mormons bcllcie that the foundations of . magnificent temple, laid many years ago lv the Angel Gabriel, are just under the sur face of the ground, and tho place is pitted with holes dug h zealous believers who have en ncavorcd to discover the walls, homo time, so they believe, the Angel Gabriel and his hosts will ascend from heaven and uncover these foundations, and then in a single night t!uy will erect one of the most beautiful temples ever beheld bv mortal eyes. The Hcndnckltes have a church in Mount Zion.and the title to the propeny is vested in one of their numDcr as trustee The recognized church is contesting the title. Last night the church bu.ldisg was nearly wrecked. All the windows were broken, the furmturo was turned npsidodowu and the altar was over turned.

It Is Forcing Up the Moerago Rate From Kuropcan Ports. srrctAL Tn.tor.AM to the dispatch, i Nlw Yoke. April L The first effect of the new immicration law adopted by Congress and now in force, is seen in the action of the Gsr. mm steitmaTiln enmninfea whle.h have rataeri tho rate of steerage passage iron all German ports to the United States by tho sum of 2 50. Ibe new law bears upon immigrant-carrying steamships in several ways, and there is no doubt that the law will reduce the immicrant carrying business o! some of the European steamship lines. It is probable in view of this reduction and of the danger and expense of violating the terms of the 1 iw that the German companies have raised the rate or steerage passengers to America. Manv oi the immigrants declared to be undesirable have heretofore come to New York from Bremen and Hamburg. StAVERY IN ST. PAUL. A COLORED GIRL HELD IN BONDAGE FOB MANY YEAES THEBE.

Gra ham has yet succeeded in unearthing one of the most infamous outrages upon humanity that is Klowii in the history of Minnesota. It does not seem reasonable, and the whole story reads like a romance of 40 years ago. It is no less than the discovery of a young woman. 19 years of age, held in the most cruel bondage in the family of one of the most prominent men In the city, hhe has been in the family for 17 years, or since infancy, and has been taught to consider heisclf an adopted daughter, as a blind. The final revelation came Monday, when it was decided by her master to place her in a convent. The reason for this was that she was growing "saucy." "Mercifully the time of her departure was postponed till Tuesday and she was allowed to spend Monday night with her friends to take a farewell of them, hhe ventured to unbosom herself to her friends, and it was almost Im possible for them to make her believe that she did not have to co, and the Rev. Graham was sent for. The story of wrongs that was poured into bis ears for two hours, as she gave the his tory o' her life, was terrible. "Here was a colored woman who did not know that she was free, and who never passed a week wlliioul one or more beatings or cow biding from her master. At one time, less tban three months ago, she was cowhided till her cluthes were glued to her back by her blood and for weeks she was unable to lie on her hack. She was finally persuaded to allow Mr. Graham to interfere in her behalf and legal counsel was sought Tuesday morning. "Mr. Murdock admitted that he was the man referred to in the Appeal, but refuses to talk until the matter come J up in the court. Mr. Graham says 1,000 has been raised to prosecute Murdock."

TELEGBAM TO TUB DISPATOO.1 Mt. Pleasaxt, April 2. The quiet that reigned about here this afternoon has taken a decided turn. At 8:50 o'clock this even ing the distant sound of drams was heard near Stoneryille, about two miles away, and soon a telephone message to the watchers in the company's office said that a gant of about 300 strikers had passed there bound for Morewood. At the Central Coke works every one was astir at 9.10, and when a crowd left that place it was learned that their objective point was the Southwest Com pany's big stables at Morewood. From all sides noises were heard, and an occasional signal light flashed up. Prepared to Meet an Attack. Heanwhile, scouts on horseback were sent out, and the deputies and other guards in the company's office prepared for the recep tion of the marchers. The orders given to the guards were to fire only when attacked, or when tbe approaching enemy failed to halt at command. Early in tbe evening Sheriff Clawson sent word that he was unable to come to Mt. Pleasant, and in his absence the gallant de fenders were placed tinder the charge of Deputy Sheriff McConuell aud Captain Loar. At 10 o'clock the sound of drums jrew louder, and at 1025 a gang of 150 from Donnelly and Stonrrville, headed by a drum corps, and each man with a car-slat or club on his shoulder, approached the More wood store. Here a surprise awaited the marching col umn. Deputy McConuell and Captain Loar mustered their forces and a line of men, num bering 60, and armed with rider, presented themselves to the strikeis' view. The gang lowered their gait to a funeral march and passed the martial array in silence. The Strikers Advancing; to Morewood. Their course was up through this place, thence to tbe Standard works, where they are at this writing, 12.15. gathering recruits. It is thought that they will soon return, and then be joined by men from Bridgeport and Tarrs, who are now on the move. If they go to Morewood they will be received warmly, as the company seems determined to repel any raid of strikers to nlzht. This afternoon Deputy Sheriff McConnell secured writs of injunction upon 32 prominent labor men here. This move created much ex citement among the strikers. At this nour 12:J5 the strikers are parading through the Standard Works, and their yelling and an occasional pistol shot can be distinctly heard in the telegraph office. Citizens in town are waiting for tbe strikers to return. In tbe street it is thought that the strikers intend making a second raid on the Morewood works. Scouts are plenty through the town, and a raid now will nndoubtedly end In bloodshed.

THE- CHILEAN WAR ENLIVENED BY NAVAL CONFLICT! Rebel Gunboats Destroy a Government Torpedp Boat and Tug, but Gnns on Shore Drive Them Hack A Shot Driven Clear Through tho O'HIggins. Sait ritAUClsco, April 1. Private ad vices from Valparaiso state that the iron clad Blanco, belonging to the insurgents, recently attempted to blow up the armed Government tug Florence with a fish torpe do. The torpedo missed the tug, but struck a big floating dry dock in the harbor blow ing it to pieces. The Blanco was thereto treated to a hot fire from every guu in the forts and steamed out of the harbor. The torpedo boat Florence and a tug stole out to attack the Blanco. The ironclad was not alone, being in company with the sloop-of-war O'Higgms. Both ships compelled the vessels to return to the harbor and followed in bot pursuit. A heavy shell from the Blanco struck the Florence, blowing her entirely ont of the water, and every one of her crew of 17 men was either killed or wounded. Abroad side from the O'Higgins knocked the tugboat all to pieces. The twovessels then turned their attention to the forts, and a lively battle en sued. A shell from the forts struck the O'Hig gins and went clear through her. Another sbell caused a gun on her quarter deck to ex plode. When the smoke cleared away tbe deck was found to have been literally torn ont of the vessel, and 8 men out of the gunboat's crew of 11! were blown to atoms. The sloop was at once taktii out of the range of the guns in tbe forts. A dispatch from San Tiagn de Chile fcays: The elections just held here bave resulted in a com plete triumph for tho Liberals. It is reported that the situation in which tbe insurgents at Iquique find themselves is a most desperate one. Everything is a: famine prices and the supply of coal is exhausted. The insurgent squadron is scouring the coast in tbe hope of capturing colliers. The Chilean Government flotilla, consisting of two gunboats, tbree tor pedo boats and an armed cruiser, is alino,t ready to proceed against the rebel ships.

The office of Com missioner of Pensions is now practically vacant, and a successor to General Green B. Ranm will donbtless be appointed in a short time. For tbe past three weeks Commissioner Raum has been traveling through tho country, loot ing after his interests in tbe refrigerator com pany, which has been the cause of a large amount of scandal connected with the Pension Office since he assumed charge. It was rumored lor a time, and on pretty good authority, that ex-Governor Beaver was to have the place, but that is now exploded. A gentleman wbo is a very close friend of Beaver, and wbo occupies a prominent position under tbe Government, said to-day that General Beaver would not accept the position if it was tendered him. He added that Beaver's visit to Washington last week had nothing to do with the appointment. It is asserted that General Browne, ex-member from Cincinnati, will be appointed to the vacancy when it is made. BOBBED AND SUFFOCATED. Two Robbers Secure 82,000 From a Farmer and Kill His Wife.

It Is Still on the Increase and Victims' Eyes Are Attacked. rtmciAL teleobam to the DisrATCB.1 Chicago, April L One hundred and sixty six deaths were reported at tbe Health Office to-day, 70 of which were caused from tbe grip. This is an increase of one over tbe terrible record of yesterday. The scourge is now attacking the eyes of many of the sufferers and nearly blinding them. Vital Statistician Tomlinson received a cablegram from London to-day. It read: "Dr. Mortimer Granville begs phvsicians of Chicago to try S grains camphor in W minims tincture of Iodine and I dram of glycerine with syrnp. frequently, for influenza. Strong meat juice is also recommended; no antipynne." Exoenments will be made with his prescrip tion in an effort to checlc tbe unprecedented ravages of the grip. Among tbe victims of the scourge to-day was the Rev. Robert M. Hat Held, one of the most eminent Methodist di vines in the United States. President Grannis. of the Atlas Bank, and President blames, wbo were reported to be dying from the grip, were better to-day, and it is now believed that both will recover. A STEADY INCREASE. New York's Death Rate Believed to Have Reached the Maximum. JSrECIAL TELEOBAM TO TUE DUrATCB.l New York. April 1. In the 24 hours ending at noon to-day 200 deaths in this city were re ported to tbe Board of Health. Tbis In crease Is attributed to tbe prevailing malady of the grip, and tbe more serious diseases occasioned by it, as bronchitis, pnenmonla and other pulmonary troubles. At tbe office of the Board of Health it was stated that tbo rise of tbe'death rate had been gradual for the last four weeks. Tbis Is in contrast with tbe sudden increase last year, when the rate jumped to bign numbers within two weeks. Dr. Tracy expressed tho opinion that the highest point bad probably been reached, and that a decline wonld shortly follow. Seventy three deaths were Reported this afternoon, which warranted the belief that tbe 24 hours ending at noon to-morrow will not show so large a rate as to-day. Tbe grip is like last year's, but working in a milder manner. Last week the total number of deaths was about 900. For the four days ending at noon to-day the deaths were 643, a rate of 1,125 for seven days. A Royal Violin Soloist. f BT DUNLAP'S CABLE COMPANT.l London. April L H. R.
