The Wind-Up of the November Corn Deal—A Train Held Up and Robbed Near St. I.outs. Other New*. Associated Press Dispatches. Indianapolis, Nov. 30.—The county jail, situated in the very c.tter of the city, was surrounded by a mob of 300 infuriated people shortly uefore mid night tonight, thirsting for the life of Charles Birsow, a ravisher confined within its walls. The man is an all around criminal, and his latent crime was an outrageous assault on a little girl named Blanche Staton, 7 years of age. The jail is a flimsy old structure, easily entered, but the mob got no further than the strong doors in the office. At one time they were upon the point of giving in to the blows of sledge hammeTS, but the sheriff and a poßse of officers cleared the room by a hard effort. Once dispersed, the backbone of the gang weakened. The ringleaders held another meeting within two squares of the jail a few minutes later. A plan is on foot now to break into a blacksmith shop and secure more tools. An attack is likely to be made later. A force of several hundred masons, with a lot of porkpackerß, is organizing in the southern part of the city and will be at the jail in two hours. At 2:10 a. m. the mob has dispersed, and a large force of police is at the jail. THIS CORNER IN CORN. The Chicago End of the Deal Nothing - But a Side Show. Chicago, Nov. 30. —A local paper says: The wind-up of the November corn deal would seem to prove tbe assertion that the Chicago end was nothing but a side show to the big corner in New York. It is evident from the advance in the price in New York to $1.10, against 75 cents in Chicago, that some persons in the former city are having the screw turned on them mercilessly. It was a very quiet, but very strong corner, shrewdly manipulated. One hundred thousand bushels of November corn defaulted this afternoon at the end of the board of trade session, F. J. Ryan & Co. are defaulters to the extent of 00,000 bush els, by reason of an injunction issued by JvMge Tulley, restraining them from filing the order of Harry B. Schlos. He contracted to deliver November crops when the price was ■!!)'._, cents, did not have corn stored, and when it became necessary to pay 75 cents, he brought an injunction suit, on the ground that a combination had been formed and the price advanced to an unlawful figure. The corn was con tracted to Lambson Bros., who in turn sold. They expect to pay this mortgage and bring suit against the Hyans. It is rumored that Bloom & Eggleston are among tbe defaulting firms. The firms supposed to be in the deal are Bartlett, Fraser & Co., C. M. Armstrong, E. Andrews and Coster & Martin, a New York firm. A dispatch from New York says: 'A well known grain operator asserts that there is no manipulation ; that the facts are that there has been a sudden big demand for corn for export the last thirty days, and the White corner caused the supply to fall short owing to the " high prices at which White put corn in the Chicago market. When the price broke corn shipped to New York was shipped abroad. The remaining corn in Chicago fell in the hands of a few buyers there, who shipped it as fast as possible to fill tbe New England demand. The conse quence was it left the Chicago market short. It was heavily oversold. It was just a natural corner, and three or four people who held the corn made a com bine. TRAIN HELD VP. A Sensational Train Robbery Naar St. Louis, Mo. St. Louis, Nov. 30.—The west-bound passenger train on the 'Frisco road, which left here at 8:25 tonight was held up and robbed at Glendale, eight miles from the station.

Nashville, Term., Nov. 30.—"The convicts shall be returned to tbe mines if it takes every able-bodied man in the state to do it," said Governor Buchanan last night. Although the governor is reticent, from other sources of informa tion it is gathered -concerning the matter, that tbe lessees have made a demand upon the state for tbe convicts. This demand was answered promptly that when the con victs were captured they would be re turned, if supplied with sufficient food and proper quarters. Proper quarters will be built at once. This will take about two weeks. Tbe guard will not be taken from the existing military companies of the state, but men will be enlisted for the purpose. About 300 of the 172 released convicts have been captured. A Gorgeous Pageant. St. Louis, Nov. 30. — One of the largest processions ever seen in this country took place today, 30,000 torch bearing men turning out to do honor to Arohbishop Kenrick. Fifty - two parishes of the city and many visiting delegations marched past tne arch episcopal residence, each parish salut ing as it passed. There were hundreds of transparencies bearing eulogistic phrases. Each parish was accompanied by a band, and tbe whole effect was something gorgeous.

H., Nov. 30.—A. A.

THE GRAND JURY'S REPORT ON HIS TAKING OFF. The Peace Officers of Bridgeport Accused of Wanton Negleot of Duty, Thereby Bringing a Cloud of Shame and Dis grace on the Community. • Bridgeport, Cal., Nov. 30. — The grand jury has returned a lengthy re port of its Investigation of the death of Ah Quong Tia, tbe Chinese who was tor tured and cut to pieces by Indians. Ah Quong Tia was charged by the coroner's jury with the murder of Poker Tom, an Indian, who was found cut to pieces. The report says the justice of the peace discharged Ah Quong from custody, when the evidence was sufficient to hold him, and tbat the prosecuting attorney did not object when counsel for the de fense moved for a dismissal against the defendant's wish, well knowing that his client would be murdered if left unpro tected. The leport finds that when the defendant was discharged, the court re fused to give him protection, but left the court room and announced tbe result of the examination on the street. Three or four Indians then l ushed into the court room, seized Ah Quong, took him to the outskirts of town and cut him to pieces alive. The sheriff had positive knowledge of what was about to occur, but refused to pro tect the victim unless paid for it. The Indians, who were from the government reservation at Walker lake, Nevada, were encouraged in their criminal act and abetted by citizens of the town. 'The report concludes that the peace offi cers of this town utterly failed in their duty, and have thereby caused "a cloud of shame and disgrace to hang over our people." The action of the deputy district attorney is also severely condemned. Ak Quong was born in California, and consequently was a cit izen of the United States. ±- .TIIF. SPEAKERSHIP CONTEST.

Chicago, Nov. 30.—The Times has a Valparaiso cable asserting that a Chile an official said today that his govern ment has no intention of making an apology or paying indemnity, as sug gested by the United States.

New York, Nov. 30.—The Herald's Valparaiso advices Bay: The United States ship Yorktown arrived here to day. Her crew received a royal wel come from the men of the Baltimore, which will, in all likelihood, soon leave for the north. the killing or riggin. The intendente of Valparaiso has re quested Captain Schley to furnish the evidence of the Baltimore,3 surgeons in regard to the nature of Boatswain's Mate Riggin's wounds, to aid in determining whether the latter's wounds were caused by a pistol or of a rifle bullet. Rifles are carried by the Chilean police. The Chilean doctor who attended Riggijn swears that his death was caused by a revolver bul let. Notwithstanding this there is a silent witness to the contrary in the bole made in the shirt and necktie of tbe Baltimore's sailor who was holding Rig gin in his armsafte.- Riggin was stabbed. This hole was made by a rifle bullet of 42 calibre, and proves conclusively that the shot was fired by police. This Is sustained by the evidence of the Balti more's surgeon, who measured the bul let wound. KENNEDY EXONERATES EGAN.

Three Buildings Demolished and a Num ber of Lives Lost. Lancaster, Eng., Nov. 30. —A myste rious explosion occurred in the market at Blackburn Place, thirty miles from here, this morning, by which three buildings were completely demolished. Before the police could make a thorough search for dead, the ruins, which had caught fire, were a mass of flames, rend ering approach impossible. It is pretty certain tbat any dead in tbe ruins will be burned beyond recognition. Six persons received serious injury in the explosion, but it is difficult at present to estimate tbe number of dead. Later and more conservative estimates place the loss of life at ten. The explosion shook the whole cen ter of the town. Hundreds of windows were smashed and buildings in the market place shaken to their founda tions. The first impression of the in habitants of the town was that tbe place was visited by earthquake, and great excitement prevailed when the cause of the shock was known, and when it was learned that many peo ple were in the Crown hotel, tbe alarm of the citizens was intensified. Exagger ated reports were circulated as to the number of deaths. At a late hour to night the members of tbe fire brigade are still energetically digging in the ruins. So far five persons have been re covered. One dead body has been taken out. The Great Aline Strike Ended. Paris, Nov. 30.—A dispatch from Pas de-Calaix announces the ending of the great mine strike.

MANCHURIANS NEARING THE CITY. Every Step Being Taken to Break Their Strength Before They Attack the Cap ital—Missionaries Warned to Flee for Their Lives. Pekin, Nov. 30. —The government is fully aware ot the serious condition which confronts it, and every possible step is being taken to break the strength of the rebels before they get within striking distance of the capital. There is much excitement here. The popula tion and the authorities believe if they can inflict defeat upon the rebel forcea, it will have a good effect upon the peo ple of Pekin and vicinity. It ia be lieved many people are secretly in favor of the rebels, but should the imperial forces do battle with the insurgents an# defeat them, the malcontents would then side with the government. No doubt is entertained that the situa tion is dangerous. Should the rebel forcea continue to advance toward the capital, in spite of the efforts of the im perial troops to prevent them, it is feared by the foreigners who are in the city that the population will rise and aid the invaders. The garrison of Shan kai-kiwan has been sent to suppress other insurrectionary bodies which are marching in various directions through the country, evidently with the intention of joining the main body. The most serious condition of affairs exists at Takou; this is the place where most brutal outrages were committed on priests, nuns and converts. What act the government will take in this matter is very hard to say. Tbat the authorities are in full sympathy with the perpetrators of these moat horrible crimes, there is no reason to doubt. The first reports from Takou stated that after these fiends had worked their bloody will on all the Christian men, women and children who fell into their hands, they were feted by the leading Chinese man darins in the district. It is now said that the local mandarins agreed to allow tbe rebels free license for the outrage of the Christians, provided they did no harm to other in habitants. These terms were accepted by tbe rebels and they pursued their work without hindrance. Three hun dred Europeans and native Christians were massacred. It ia believed no Christians escaped. Consternation prevails among the Protestant missionaries in the districts through which it is expected the rebels will pass. The local officials at Tsunha bave declared tbat they are powerless to protect the missionaries, and that if they de sired to save their lives they had better seek safety in flight. The missionaries at Tsunha have abandoned their sta tions and sought refuge in safer parts of the country. IN THE REICHSTAG. Herr Rlchter Criticises the Acta of the Emperor. Berlin, Nov. 30. —In the course of the debate in tbe reichstag on the budget today Ricbter criticised tbe publication of imperial rescripts without a minis ter's countersignature, especially the one relating to public morals. It ill became the government, he said, to talk of checking the course of speculation while it per mitted atate lotteries and race-betting. Yon Caprivi, in reply, said the consti tution did not require ministers to countersign acts of the sovereign, giving expression to his wishes. The publication of such acts in the Reichsanzeiger was mere ly intended to record their terms. As to the Reich tor's attacks on Bis marck, he (Caprivi) made it a point never to read anything likely to alter his feeling of veneration for bis pre decessor. A Colorado Snow Blockade. Benver, Nov. 30.—Information from Sydney, Colo., says the freight teams which started from North Park last week hauling grain have returned with loaded wagons. On the summit of the continental divide, snow drifts were encountered from ten to twelve feet deep.
