of the danger till.too late to attempt to descend
the stairways. She reached the
fire-escape, but at each floor found the

passage of heraelf anil infant. She was
therefore compelled four times, with the

A Horrlhlo Triple .Murder; for wbleh Tw
Georgia Negroea will Hang.
Oaiiiuji, Ga., March 21.?Mose Keato
nnd Peter Johnson, two negroes, were t<
day found guilty of a triple murder an
sentenced to death. The story of th
murder, as told in court, of Keaton's wil
shows shocking details.
About 11 o'clock oue night of Decembei
Moses Keaton alias Jackson, and wile an
another negro named Peter Johnson wen
to Stephen Goodwin's house for the put
pose of robbing him. The former pre
tested, but her husband drew a knile am
told her if Bhe did nut stand at the gate o
tho front yard and give warning of ap
proach hu would kill her. The men at
tempted to force an entrance, bnt alarmei
Mr. Goodwin, who called to know who i
was. Ho was answered by Moses, whi
said:
"It's me, Mr. Goodwin; mo and Peti
been out 'possum limiting and got col<
and thought wo would come by and see i
. you Are bad gone put."
Mr. Goodwin opened the door and lei
tliem into the rooln to the fire and went t(
it bed again, but, instead of remajninf
, awake to let them out again, he went u
j sleep, and by his own tiretbey plotted hit
; murder. A knife and an ax wore used tc
: do tho execution. Goodwin was dispatch
ed/lret, and then Richard Gregory. Both
; Were murdered while asleep; but when
! the negroes came to Mr* Gregory slit
I awoke, and a struggle ensued. Mrs,
s Gregory begged for her life, but, tlndint
tho llends remorseless, she fought for it.
, Jlcr struggles were useless', however, and
' 83011 she was a mangled corpse at tho feet
ot the murderers. Her body was so
bruiscil and hacked with knife and ax
as to be almost beyond recognition.
The murderers searched for the booty,
but no money being found they loft
' tho houso covered with blood to join the
woman outside, and then went to the
* lot and took their horses and buggy, Mo
sos saying there would be a "time" in the
. morning when the bodies were discoverod.
When remonstrated with by his wife
i he ordered hor to be silent, and said ho
I would do tlie same thing over again. Af1
ter an exciting chsse of ten days, in which
r the murderers went 400 miles down in
. Florida and back, they were caught in Co[

mora of a strike against a reduction at the
Pittsburgh Steel Casting Company's works
* were rife. One of the proprietors said:
"It is true we bad intended making a
reduction in all of our departments of from
5 to 20 percent, according to the wages
paid. The notice was posted two days
ago, and since then I have been on tenterhooks
to see how tho boys would
take it; All ray employes have been
with me, man and boy* for the last
thirteen years. I thought I understood
them, and I did. Not a wor4 was
said. In fact,.they accepted the induction
much easier thftn j did this morning. 1
called tho boys together and made a Tittle
sneech, telling them that it was impossi,
ble for me to make the reduction and still
t feel like a white man. I told them to
. economize as much qs possible, both in
I their time an4 work, and we would pull
. through the hard times together at the old
I wages or sink in the attempt."
The men in the employ of this Arm are
, among the beat mechanics in the.city, and
receive tho best wages. The pullers-out
receive from $4 to $7 a day. Elsewhere
they are paid $2 60 a day. Other classes
of work are paid for In proportion. JThe

between brute and man was reported yesno
terday. Gottleib Hartman, a German i
who lives juat beyond the city, on the
Street road, recently imported a fine
blooded dog from Germany. The dog was
a mastiff, and a ferocious brute. It was
its ponderous in strength and as savage as a
ro Southern bloodhound. Mr. Hartman in- n
trusted his premises to the watchfulness ,
abd powers of tho animal, but little ,
** dreamed that he would be the victim to 1
re his sentinel's faithfulness. c
tt Last Thursday Mr. Hartman was called h
? to the city on business that detained him ?
until a late hour in the night. His wile ,
*> has been ill for some days, and to more '
o- securely guard the premises and protect b
e the family he unchaiued tho maetiir be- 8
fore leaving home. About 12 o'clock in n
the night he returned and, forgetting that U
" be had turned his dog loose, carelessly C
d entered tho yard. He had neglected to b
e take his night-key with him, and not "
wishing to arouse the family he went to a *
rear window that he knew was .easily 1>
' opened and was attempting an entrance "
e when his faithful savage dog attacked ai
is him. f
Just aa he raised the window, the dog is
sprang upon him and seized him by the Jo
it arm. Mr. Hartman tore loose from the 0
.- brute's fi-st hold only to begathered in a is
Ij firmer grip. A terrible struggle ensued, 8<

was aa tenacious and ferocious as a tigress, it
B The man's arm was lacerated, and he soon
i became convinced that he was but a child P?
J in the paws of his foe. The sight of blood tu
1 seemed to increase the anger of the mai- th
t tifT, which fought him with indescribable
J ferocity.
i It waa evident that if was a battle to the
J death, and Mr. Hartman drew a large dirk- a"
I knifo from hia pocket and plunged it into en
i tho brute's throat. He plied the weapon frc
J several timea before the dog would lot go
1 tola hold. But growing weak by the loss *7
