kind of business was carried on for a series I
ol epare iliustrates nt once the primitive I
wcilitiou and the low state ot pnblic spirit
in that region." Our esteemed cotemporary 1
is my lunch in error. Bourbour is not a I
new county and it is not inhabited by al
*ild or priiuitivu people. It bad the mis* I
fortune to ha chosen by some very bud I
men as their theatre of action, but public I
sentiment was active aud earnest agaiuBt 1
tiieiu. The lurmer editor ol the JfjftTMniixn 1
umpaptr, Mr. Ueorge P Sargeut, assailed
ue Red Men bo vigorously that they con
templated his murder. For the active part I
hs took against them the Hon. Samuel V. 1
Woode, uow a Judge ol the Supreme Court I
oi Appeals, was also marked lor nseassina-1

There was no indication oj a "low Btate

kaewihAt their property was unsafe audi
their liv*.* insecure, that their county was
terrorized ami disgraced by the crimes ol
the ltal Men, and they did what they
could to punish the criminals and restore 1
order. There was neither railroad nor
telegraph. A large part o( the country 1b 1
hilly and heavily covered with forest. The

aud harder still to convict. It became
necessary to nek the Legislature to pass a
conspiracy act to facilitate conviction, and
then thu w ork of regeneration began.
The band was broken up nearly two 1
y?araago. The confession of Kittle, which I
the Timet and some other distant news-1

Caldwell, O., October 5 ?Private Dal*
zell lately wrote to Frederick Dougitsp, nn
old friend of his, inquiring about his atti
tude on the color question, and to-day re
ceived for answer the following interest
ing letter:
WifiiiNOTO.v, D. C., Octotcr 9,1883.
My Dbah Daizell:?Your letter came
to me in the midat of the Louisville Con
vention. I had no time to acknowledge
and tbank you for it at the moment as I
should have gladly done. I have read it,
and bear witness to the truth that you have
ever been a true friend of my people and
of the Republican party. I concede to you
the gift of prophecy, and should like to have
you tell me whom the Republican party
will put in nomination next year. I see
that my views at the Louisville convention
are variously commonted upon. I am
thought to bean Independent, and so 1
am, but I am an independent; inside of the
Republican party I can have ail the inde
pendence I want; inside of the Republican
party I am independent and dependent.
I do not take a step in life that I am not
dependent on somebody or something. In
politics I am dependent on one or the
other political party, and I am foolish
enough to think that the Republican party
may as safely be trusted with thetfcstiny of
the Republic and the rights of the colored
people os the Democratic party, and in
this I know I am right
can't sib tub poinp.
For the. life of me I cannot see
how any Jionest colored man who ha'*
brains enough to put two ideas to
gether, can' allow himself und^r the no
tion of independence, to give aid and com
fort to the Democratic party in Ohio or
eUewhere. Woe to the colored people ef
this couutry when the Republican party
shall triumph in spite of the treacherous
votes of colored men. find as our condi
tion now is it would be worse then. We
Bhonld neither have nor deserve the confi
dence of any party, and woald, to use a
slang phrase, "be out in the*cold." My
advice to colored men everywhere is to
Btick to the Republican party; tell your
wanlt; hold the party up to ils professions,
but do your utmost to keep it in power in
the 8tate and Nation.

What 1 slid at Louisville about tho elec
tion of a colored man to the Vice-Presi
dency has been perverted. What I said
was that no claw o[_tho American people
cculd afford to bo excluded from partici
pation in theadmlnistrationol tho Govern
ment, and when a colored man could be
elevated to the Vice-Presidency or had a
seat in the Cabinet tlie color line would no
longer be significant. My views on this
subject are given in the last paragraph of
uiv address which I send you herewith.
We hold it to be self evident that no class
or color should be the exclusive rulere of
this country. If there is such a ruling
class there must of course be a subject
class, and when this condition is once eS'
tablished this government by the people,
of the people, and for the people, will have
already perished from the earth.
STILL A BBPUnLICAN.
I hope you will allow no man to tell you
uncontradicted that I am not now, as I
ever have been, a firm and inflexible Re
publican. The convention at Louisville
was non partisan. The objects sought were
broader than party, and appealed to the
justice of the American people at large.
My hands are full of work, as doubtleBS
yours are, and I will not write yon further
now. Your friend,
[Signed ] Fhkpkkick Douglass.

Washington, October 5.?Notwithstand
ing all that has been written and said upon
the subject of reduced postage, thousands
of people are still ignorant of the law.
Hundreds of foreign letters are posted daily
on which only two cents postage has been
paid, tho sender believiug that the reduc
tion in domestic rates extends also to
foreign points. In all the large cities drop
letters with only a one-ccnt stamp
attached are mailed by the bushel.
The I'ostoiBce Department Ib flooded
to the effect of the law on the old stamps,
and although repeated sssuranc s have
been made that the three and sixes are
still good, more information is wanted.
In answer to these questions the depart
ment is preparing a |circular which will be
posted in each postoffice explaining once
more the effect ol the recent reduction, so
that all may understand, as stated, that
the three and six cent stamps are Btiil
receivable ou all classes ol matter at their
face value. Further, the circular will
notify the publio that as soon as arrange
ments for the clerical work can be per
fected theso issues will bo redeemed be

PiTranuaou, October 5 ?The theory that
the Exposition lire was started by Prof.
Warner's balloon was greatly strengthened
to day by the statement of W. 0. Cook, the
Exposition painter. He aays that the day
before the Ore he saw P of. Warner and
two assistants pour boiled linseed oil on
the balloon by the bnckctfnl. This was In
the boiler room, and he thinks the heat
cosed the oil to Ignite. The Fire Marsnai
agrees with this theory.

Richmond, Va., October 5.?Maliom
made a speech at Zani, Southamptor
? county to day. The occasion was a Coal
ition barbecue and oyster roast, which
had been extensively advertised lor weelu
past The meeting was largely attended b>
white and black Coalitionists from this and
surrounding counties. Ki Congressman
Dezandorf, who has been making it lively
for Mahonc in this State, announced some
time ago that he would be present at Zani
to day and tell Mahoue to his face that he
had aold out to the Republican party in the
Senate in consideration of the bestowal
"upon him < f the federal patronage in
tbis State. Dczendorf claims that Presi
dent Arthur souie time back admitted as
much to him. For some reason the ex
Congressman did not put in an appearance
to-day, bat may meet Mahone later in the
canvass. Mahone spoke for nearly threo
houre. His remarks were confined almost
entirely to State matters. He spent much
of his time in explaining to the negroes the
benefits bestowed upon their race by the
Coalitionists. Most of his speech was made
up of statements on issues already thread
bare in this State. He seemed purposely
to refrain from touching upon national
politics and questions. He commended
Arthur's administration for his liberal
treatment of the Stale.
Southampton is Mahone's na'.ive country
and he is particularly anxious for his party
to be indorsed by the vote of its people this
year. Mahone carried it in 18S1, but at the
local election in May it went agaiust him.
A few weeks prior to that contest a white
Mahonite killed a Straight-out negro in the
country: That fact was used witti good
effect against the Mabonites in the May
el-.ction in Southampton, as well as several
other large negro counties adjoining it.
The negro* s were indlgnaut at tue murder
of one of their race and left Mahone in
troops. On Monday night Sam Prescott, a
colored Coalition leader, shot and killed a
Straight-out negro named PreBcott at a
political gathering at Franklin, in South
ampton county. The murder has created
great indigoation among that race in the
country and .wilLembarraw. fldahone ip
this canvass. .It was talked, of-among tlm
negroes tu the Zuni meeting to-day. 1: is
understood - that Governor Cameron has
contributed $1,500 to Mahone's campaign
fund. O.her prominent Rjadjusterleaders
are believed to have contributed us liber

Laredo, Texas, October 5.?i gentle
man juBtfrom Lampasas, Mexico, gives
full particulars of a most horrible tragedy
that occurrtil on Wednesday near that
place. Mrs. Valdez killed her five children
and then herself daring a lit of insanity.
In one of the large ranches, about twenty
miiea to the southward of Lampasas, there
lived for four years past a quiet, well-to-do
Mexican, named Antonio Valdtz, whose
family consisted of wife und live children,
the age of the eldest of the children being
ten years, and of the youngest two
years. The wife, who wus about
thirty years of age, had been subject
to epileptic tits and spells of melancholy of
long duration. Darin# the past few months
she has exhibited many e icencesof in
sanity, and when in such aberrations in
variably sought to do violence to her little
ones. On Wednesday tho woman wia at
tacked with a lit of uijuiral severity. When
she had recovered from the spasm her hus
baud went to work to herd a dock of sheep
belonging to the ranch, tie had been
?;one but a short time when his wife rose
rom her couch, and with a huge butcher
knife, which had been imprudently left
within her reach, commenced her terriblb
work of destruction. Her oldest child, u
Bweet girl of ten, was first to fall a victim to
her maniac mother's cruel blows, her head
being almost severed from her body. With
that method peculiar to insaue persons, she
in succession slew the other children, hack
ing and stabbing them in a sickening man
ner. The frantic woman, after the nve
bleeding little corpses lay at her feet, view
ed them with grim satisfaction, tilling the
air with wild aud weird exclamations.
Suddeuly, taking a parting look at the dead
before her, she pluuged the kniie into her
own breast, reeled to a comer in the room
and fell dead. During ail the time this
fearful tragedy was being enacted the serv
ing woman, u peon, was powerlefs to pre
vent it from subject fear. The huabaud
was soou apprised of what had happened,
and his lamentations were pitiable in the
extreme and he could not be consoled. In
due time the neighbors came and speedy
arrangements were made to bury the dead.
Six graves were dug and tho next morning
the funeral rites were performed.

New Orleans, October 5.?A more brutal
crime than that perpetrated at Provencal,
Natchitoches Parish, on Sunday night, has
scarcely been chronicled. Six negro sec
tion hands o^the New Orleans Pacific Rail
road, and one Bradfleld, sat around a
camp-fire in the woods for a game of cards.
Bradfield was in luck, and succeeded in
winning all the money of the others. Ex
asperated at their losses, the negroes de
manded that their money won should be
returned to them. This demand Bradtleld
resisted. An assault was then made upon
him, aud tho monoy taken away. Not con
tent with this, the infuriated negroes seised
their victim, who was a powerful man.
aud resisted violently, and forced
him npon the fire. He was held by the
legs aud arms, notwithstanding his violent
struggles, until his hair and scalp, one
hand and the other arm were buraea off,
and then released, lu this horribly muti
lated condition he managed to drag him
self along for several miles until he readi
ed a place where a-wintanco was rendered
him. His injuries were so severe,
however, that he died Monday night
in great agony. The facts were kept con
cealed until yesterday, when warrants
were issued for Bradfleld's murderers.
They are a desperate gang and willurob
ably show fight before they will submit to
arrest. The same gang were on trial a few
days betore the assault upon Bradford,
charged with the murder of their section
boss, but were released because no direct
evidence against them could be secured.
The goueral belief is that they committed
that murder also.
Dewperate Han Captured.
Chicago, October 5.?Detectives passed
through here last night for Tilden, Tex., in
charge of a man named Abe Young,.who
is wanted for the murder of a man named
O'Donnell, in November, 1878. The priso
ner was arrested on a ranch seventy miles
south of Rawlins, on the Union Pacific
railroad, where he was living with a Mrs.
Castro, be having driven the husband of
the woman away. It is told of Young that
he and his brother carried on the career of
brigandage in the southwestern part ol
Texas for a number of years, robbing
stages. The murder of O'Donnell resulted
in tneir being driven from the country.

be aeon Franklin county is given to the
Republicans. Mr. Woodward in "Plain

in 1831 it was 307; in 1882 the
carried it by 778 votes, while in 1883 the
Reuublioans au*in came to the front witn
a in*ioritv of M2. The total vote cast in

12,058. It will be seen therefore, that the

named. The county can consequently be
counted aa Republican, and will certainly

Mrpiibllrnu Mnjortly Expected.
Stkudxnvillk, October 5.?The political
Bituatioo in this neck of the woods, now
tbat election day is near, becomes a matter
of State interest. George H. Pendleton,
the aspirant for continued Senatorial hon
ors, whb here the other day trying to assist
John A. Kith cart in squeezing himself
through once more as representative in the
Legislature. Of what benefit he has been
to John remaiuB to be seen, but the general
opinion among well informed Republicans
is that "Gentleman George" had better
look nearer his own home, as Kithcart's
defeat iB one of the certainties written in the
book of fate, and the Senator had better
put his time in where he might possibly do
some good.
As lar as can be discovered at the pres
ent time, Jefferson county may be depend
ed upon for her regular Republican major
ity, with some hopes of an increase.' These
hopes are based on the promise of a
fuller vote than last year, brought out by
the temperance issues; from the fact tbat
that this is a strong tariff section; from the
fact that some Germans and more Ameri
cans wbo left us last year on account of
the liquor question are again with us, and
for other reaaons. A majority for the State
ticket of from 1,100 to 1,200 seems within
{he bounds oi reasonable expectation. On
the Republican county ticket every candi
date, including Representative, will be
elected with possibly the exception of
County Commissioner, wit^ a good chance
for him. too. Jefferson will keep up her
end of the boon.

The Democrrtlle Commit tee t'iexdlni Tor
ftlekty ftjinpntliy. ?
Columbus, October 5.?The Democratic
Committee to-day mailed to all committee
men a circular beginning as follows:
"Judge Hoadly returned to Ohio last Sat
urday. On Monday he, with Senator Mc
Donald, of Indiana, addressed an audience
of 15,000 people at Cleveland. Whilst s!cx
in Pniladelpbfftthe Republican papers con
tinued the campaign of personal abuse
against him, and on his return to Ohio he
was greeted by such Republican papers as
the Cleveland Leader with two or three
columns ol personal abuse." The circular
goes on to contrast this alleged state ol af
fairs with alleged conduct of the Democ
racy while the lamented G?rfield, as they
speak ol bim, lay sick at Eiberon.
The hypocrisy of the Democratic Commit
tee, from whom no abuse was too great in
1880, speaking of ths lamented Garfield, is
? the greatest giveaway of the campaign.
> The remainder of the address is devoted to
the abuse of Foster, and appeals to Demo*
crats to stand by tbe ticket An attorn*
!b made to persuade Democrats that Iiamil
ton county is in lovely condition, bat lik<
I every other feature of the circular, is to<
thin. It is about time tbe Hoadly aid
business be exposed. That No. 20 moutbec
II fltateeman was literally run out of theStaU
by bis Democratic managers, because he
was like a bull in a china shop. A couplc
of days of quinine would bave set him al!

I Stamford, Conn, October 5.?There ii
I trouble here. The laws of the country are
i set at naught, and the requirements of tbe
? fifteenth amendment are iguored. Equal
? rights are not accorded the black man, and
1 a half-dozen lawsuits are in contemplation.
[ On Main street, the principal thoroughfare
of Stamford, is the establishment of Wil
liam Kuapp. When a customer enters one
of the first things to meet his eye is a big
placard bearing the words: "Colored Peo
ple's Table." This placard hangs over a
little table at the rear end of the restaur
ant. It is the duty of waiters
to Sky that "colored people" can sit at no
other table. They must take their food in
this dark corner or not tako it all Three
weeks ago Mr. Kuapp painted his placard
and adopted hia new rule. Hitherto there
had been no destination made between cus
tomers in his restaurant on account of the
bue of their skin, so long as tbey were ap
parently respectable and well bebaveu.
Mr. Knapp's new departure waa quickly
imitated, and the color line is now drawn
with dtcided distiuctiven*sa at Germania
Hull, the only variety theatre in town.
Elsewhere also the black m?n is sought to
be impressed with his inferiority. Mr.
Kuapp, however, is as yet the sole propri
etor of a placard announcing an "anti
nigger" crusade.
Two colored men, accompanied by a
white man, entered Krapp's place to test
bis rule. All three were well drewed, and
each man bore himself quietly. S-iying to
a waiter that they desired dinner, the trio
eat down at one of tbe centre tables. Tbe
waiter motioued back toward tbe "colored
people's table," and Proprietor Knapp him
self rushed to the fore.
"That table down there is for you black
folks," he said, abruptly. "I won't have
you up here."
"But," protested tbe white man, "these
men are ray guests. I want them to sit
with me. 1 insist on their ri?" .
"Oh, I don't care what you want or what
you don't want," inteirupted the restau
rant man, wrathfully. :,Theso negroes
have got to go down to that other table?
the table for colored folks?or else they
can't get unything to eat in this place.
And that settles that".
There seemed to be a bright prospect
for trouble, and the would be customers
withdrew.
To a reporter who asked why be insisted
on drawing the color line at liia restaurant,
Mr. Kcapp announced that ho proposed to
iua his business to suit himself. If he did
not care to cater to black people it was a
raatterconceruing himself solely, and he
did not propoee to have newspapers or any
body else interfering witbhim. When it
was intimated to Mr. Koapp tbat suits for
damages might bo brought by colored
people under the provisions of the fifteenth
ameudmenr, ho laughed a deep hysterical
iBU^h and rubbed bia hands gleefully,
having no fear, he said.

I'liiLADKLi'iiiif, October 0 ?Fifty or six
ty curious people gathered last evening in
the ball of tlie Aw>embly Building, Tenth
aud Chestnut, to bear ex-Councilman Job
Logan explode the "G feat Ross Bubble."
After some preliminary practicing on the
piauo by a youug lady in a bright red
batque, who apparently labored under the
delusion that "Maiden's Prayer" had never
before been heard by any of the audience,
Mr. Logan appeared in evening costume
and announced himself aa a man who nev
er asked any fivors of anybody, but al
wave was ready to grant them to every
body. Therefore, he would not he disap
pointed if his lecture did not produce the
desired effect upon the minds of bis bear
erf, because for nine years he had been
laughed at and called a crank. He did
not care about such trifling matters, for he
had sworn to unravel 'be Charlie Ross
mystery and he would do eo, crank or no
crank, il it took him his lifetime.
Mr. Logan then proceeded to unfold the
rt salts of his researches in a rambling dis
course, which lasted over two hours and in
which he repeatedly charged that Charlie
Rosa had beei stolen by his father,
Christian K. Ross. At the close of his
addrtsti Mr. Logan asked his audience and
the influential meu of Philadelphia to back
him up with their iuflueuce, so that he
could obtain a requisition from Governor
Pattison to bring Charlie Ross and hia
present captor from bt, Louis, where they
ore now living, to this city. This he de
clares he could do within ninety days.

stated that he had recently been a

sand dollars, and that Judge Greebam had
covered up his offenses. The Postmaster
General spent last night in a thorough in

nearch of the records of the department

Philadelphia, October 5 ?An inbouni
train on the North Pennsylvania branch o
the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad
ran into a street car of the Union Line, a
i at Sufqaehanna avenne and Americai
street this morning. The car was demol
ished and all the passengers more or lesi
injured. Ten persons, who were the mos
severely injaied, were taken to th<
Episcopal Hospital, and two have slnc<
died. The driver of the street car was in
side of the car at tho time of the accident
Those who have died are James Hammill
and James Devine. Among those injured
was a woman named Alary Sellers, who
was terribly mangled. She and several
others are expected to die.
The names of the dead are as follows:
John MeKeown, gardener, aged 40 years;
residence Howard and Norris streets, leaves
a wife and seven children. James Ham
mill, coal dealer. 2335 Howard stieet; had
a leg cnt off and died twenty minntes after
entering the hospital.
NATURK OF THE INJURIES.
The names of the wounded are as fol
lows: Henry Schullz, 22 years of age, foot
torn off at the ankle, and it had to Be am
putated. Jacob Isemiger, 45 years old,
scalp wound; not serious.* Adam Kraner,
about 45 years old, scalp wound and k
jurieH to the shoulder, back and leg;
not serious. Charles Young, dangerous
wounds, leg broken, ankle mashed; am

wound, injury of leg; not serious. Mary

tured; will probably di e. James McHenry,
slight scalp wound. Mies Minnie Shaw,
120 years old, injured internally and scalp
wound. George Fredericks, not serious.
Frederick M. Young, not serious. There
was no conductor on the car, and the
driver's duty required him to drive bis
team and see the fares deposited in thtf
box, and at the same time wa tch for steam
trains on the railroad croeaing.
NO SAFETY OATE.
Tho railroad company had no safety gate
at the crossing, although they have been
directed by the City Council a year ago to
erect one at that place. The driver, had
stopped while the north bound train passed,
but did not notice the train on the other
track. Hesturtedhis horses, and before
the pasuengers had a moment's notice
the south bound train ruaning at
the rate of twenty-live miles an
hour, struck the car on the side,
tearing it to pieces und hurled the paesen-i
gers, bruised and bleeding, into a promis
cuous heap. Ambulances from the Epis
copal Hospital arrived quickly and moat of
the suileiers removed to that institution,
while others were taken into the neighbor
ing houses, and a few injured taken to
their homes. It is said by a man who wit
nessed the accident that a boy was acting
as driver, while the regular driver was in
side the car.
SCENE ATTIIEWHKC1A
The scene whs a frightful one. Men and
women were heaped in a groaning mass.
As soon as -possible assistance readied
them, and they were rescued. People liv
ing in the neighborhood aay that their
cries could be heard for squares. Crowds
came rushing to the spot from all quarters,
and in a very short time the place was
covered with eager inquirers, whose fears
showed in their faces. Some of the vic
tims who were not seriously injured limp
ed painfully away to their homes,
while the rest were put ou improvised
stretchers and conveyed to the
Kjiiscopal Hospital. As the car neared the
railroad the attention of the driver, it is
said, was attracted by the clanging of a
locomotive bell behind, which was au up
ward bound train. Tue horse car halted
and the train sped by, und tnen the car
made a fresh start to clear the track and
get out of danger. The driver bad evident
ly not kept a close eye upon the other
track, upon which was approaching with
speed the Newtown train duo at Third
nud Berks streets at 6:30. When
the approaching train was noticed
it was too close for the horse car to attempt
to recede, and the team was not quick
enough to diaw it from under, and before
the astonished passengers had even a mo
ment's warning the locomotive struck the
car plump in tbe side and hurled it in the
air. The passengers were scattered into a
promiscuous heap, bruised and bleed
ing. with flesh and clothiug badly torn,
while the car was scattered into
more than a thousand fragment*. The roof
had been torn as if by a tornado. Pannels
were split and crushed and torn into
Bbreds. Th^* horses had cleared the track
and were in a safe position when the col
lision occurred; the tongue was broken
from the car separating the two animals,
both of which escaped without a scratch.
The car was thrown a distance of full fifty
feet. How any one in it escaped death was
a miracle. A boy who was with
the driver was carritd on the cowcatcher
of the engine for fully a block before the
train stopped. The car which was wrecked
was known as the "Bobtail;" so named for
the reason that they have no conductors,
the passengers dropping fare in the Staw
son box.
Mary 8ellers, aged 22, of No. 1230 North
Second street, and Charles Young, aged 30,
of 1201 Mascher street, died at the Episco
pal Hospital to-night

Hkbbon, Conn., October 5.?The society

Congregational Church, tn which he vig
orously denounced Mr. J. B. Fillmore, a
prominent member ol his flock and an
rarnest worker in his course, as a breaker
oi the seventh commandment and a polygi

vective, and its energy thoroughly awa

amusement?alarm because the chnrch has
a weak pocket book and Mr. Fillmoro and

man who heartily believes what he is talk

in the provision trade but the advance n
prices is slight. Cotton is stronger in view
of a probable reduced crop but the receipts
have interfered with any material advance
in value. Petroleum has been fairly steady

Et. Lpois, October 5?The Age of Steel
will publish to-morrow about thirty letters
from the Iron,Steel aud Hardware Alauufac
turer's dealers of various parts of tie
West relating to the present condition and
the outlook for the fall trade in these lines.
This summary of the letters shows the
present condition of thetrado good, the
demand comparing very favorably with
that of last year. Tlio sales are larger as a
rule than last year, but prices, however,
are low, bo that per centHge of profits will
not vary materially from last year.
The outlook is encouraging as to volume
but Hotas to prices. The condition of the
country is such that there will be a large
demand for goods for actual consumption,
but anxiety on tfce part of manufacturers
to disposo of excessive production causes a
weaknees in pricts all through the trade
down to local dealers.
