A WORKMAN DROWNED
At the New Bridge to the Island Yesterday Morning. THE FIRST LIFE LOST ON THE WORK Mack Martin, Climbing from a Skiff to the File Driver, Slips into the Water anil Is Drowned?A Sad Coincidence In Uia Doatli. It was a ead coincidence -that a few hours after the Ixte!.moen"cer linil quoted ono of the contractors on .tho new bridge to the Island at referring with lively satisfaction to the fact that although tho worlcwas nearly completed, there had not been a fatal accidcnt in its progress, one of the employes should lose his life. Shortly after nine o'clock yesterday forenoon Mack Martin, one of tlie olilest and most valued oinploycs of tho firm of BairdUrothort, wasdrownod in the river beneath the bridgo, and his body has not been recovered. Martin had rowed out to the flat,boat on which tlie pile driver stands, and was in tho act o! climbing from his skill' upon the boat, lie rained himself on ft cable by which the bout was moored, but just as ho was stepping to tho deck of the boat, his foot slipped and ho fell iuto the water. Before his fellow workmen realized what hud happened ho had disappeared from sight beneath tho Hat bottom of the boat. Ho did not reappenr, and was doubtless drowned before his body got to the lower end of the boat. As soon as they could get to tho spot, John Dalton, Tout Down and two other white men, and Jim Hrecdlove, colored, rushed down and dived. A rope was nlso dragged under the boat, but the body bail not lodged there, lis was thought it might. Workmen at once began to drag the river for the body, but without success. Martin's home was at New Castle, l'a. lie uas thirty-six years old, and leaves a widow and several children dependent on his wages for support. A STK ANGER DROWN ED. Ills Clothe*, with Tnpvrn (living 111* Identity, Found iu a Sklfflast Night. Yesterday evening Daniel Manners called Officer Terrell's attention ton suit of clothes lying in tlie bow of a fit-liing boat belonging to Manners ami another man, ond moored a short distance bolow the water works pumping station. The officer wont with Manners and found the suit of clothes, including a full suit of everything a man would ordinarily wear. A boy named Campbell. living in the vicinity, looked at the clothcs and said he hail seen a man wearing such a suit, go down over the river bank about four o'clock, nnd 110 one could be found that could give any further or ipore definite information. The clothing was taken to police headquarters, where a search of the pockets revealed a comb, lead pencil, memorandum book and a lot of papers. Among the papers wero two legal papers. One wus a declaration of particulars in a suit in the United States Court of Pennsylvania. The plaintiff was Kobert Thompson, of San Jacinto, Cal., and the defendants Wm. M. Jtuseell, ltobcrt Cowden and Alex. Ciasten, all of .Mt. Pleasant township, Washington county, Fa. The suit was to rurover a tract of land in Mt. Pleasant township, bordering oil the lands of Sainuel Wilson, Samuel Moore, Alex. McElroy, Thomas .Miller and others. The declaration further states that in 18U1', the father of the plaintiff and JamcsTlioinpson, John M. "Thompson, Harriet McNary and Margaret J. Russell diod and left tho land in question to them. One of these sons. John M. Thompson, was then in a state of lunacy and the will made provision for his support and euro. By some means, the plaintitT became involved and the share coming to him and moneys due to him as administrator are alleged to have been taken without process of law by the defendants. This article was poorly written and loosely drawn and was held together by pins. It showed no evidence (of having been Hied with tho court and had been changed in places in pencil. Another document similar in character described a suit and set forth the grounds for action by Robert Thompson, of San Jacinto, Gal., against tho county of Washington, Iowa, and was addressed to the United Statos circuit court, southern and eastern circuit of Iowa. Tho paper alleges that betweou tho month of October 1880 and October 18U0, the agents and officers of the county of Washington, Iowa, unlawfully "deprived tho plaintiff, Robert Thompson of the use, possession and eujoyment of a noto for $800, bearing 10 per cent interest and made by Robert McNary, September 20,1800. Also town lots Nob. 5 and 0 In block 20, Drighton, Washington county, Iowa, and the east two-thirds of lot No. 1, in block 7 of the samo town. Also, two shares of the ? .i v..! 1 , 1: capital hiock 01 mo i>auomu imiuh 01 Washington, Iowa, and twenty-nix shares of the stock of tho Washington National Bank of Iowa. His property is valued at $J6,000 and tho suit is brought for that amount. The allegation is that "said property was taken under circuinstances of great force, violence and oppression." A telephone message from Washing ton, l'a., concerning the matter savs that liobort Thompson's homo is in Mt. Pleasant township, Washington county, l'a.. but that he has been away for a long timo. He was a plasterer by trade and was known by the nick-name "John Lengthv." He was seen in Washington a few days ago nnd talked to John Thompson, a police olliccr there. The supposition le that tho owner of the clothing, whoever lie is, was drowned nearby. STATU FAIR NOTES. I.Org? ADUllier OS Auirimi Aircau; ??? oslve?I?Splondlil Prospects. Tho nnmbor of entries so far received is really astonishing. Never before in the history of the associatibn litis there been snch a rush for space.' Every nook and corner of the exposition building has been tilled, and a diversified and entertaining exhibit is assured. The same can be said of tho machinery hall. The show of agricultural implements will be magnificent indeed. A. R. Jacob, superintendent of the cattle department, leaves for Youngstown next week. Mr. Sisson, of the sheep department, will take in Wellsville, 0., and Washington, Pa. Both gentlemen go in the interest of procuring entries in the cuttle, sheep, swine and poultry departments. With the largo number of entries already received, and what the above gontlnmen will secure, a monster exhibition may be expected. Mr. Anderson, of the racing committee, left last night for Washington (3. II., Ohio. From there ho goes to Wellsvllle, 0., and thence to Youngatown. The association will undoubtedly have better racea than ev<r before-witnessed hero. There are at present 160 hone stall* on the trrounde, and nivpajutions ure buiji/ made to build additional ones to meal the great demand. Many additional alalia for cattle, aheep and swine have already been built, and the management will be able to provide for all wlu> desire to participate. The music at the fair -w-ill be fnrninhed by the Wheeling Opora 1 Iouoe brass band. A rare concert of melody will be given each day. On tho llrat day of ihe fair the hand will make' a grand tour of Wheeling, .Martin's Ferry, ^Ktnavlllc.

Council was to liavo met last night, but owing to nn finiKBositiyh foconcentrato on tlio part of the Second branch, thcro was no quorum of that side of the hall, and tho Firat, which got a quorum qnito early, had to adjourn without transacting any business. After half a dozen members of the Second had sat about the room and smoked and talked anil eaten peanuts till tliev were tired, 11 little horse plnv was indulged in. Clerk Ilauke, of tho First, called a bogus roll, and the reporters answered present to evSry name mentioned, froin Detective (irlbble to Toby Vance and linrney Brady. The body could not bo declarod open until It hud a presiding officer, and (ius.

Frank. Jepson. (inrbey rappid for order, and got it, after which loud eries of "speech," "speech," were heard. Garbey rose very gracefully and delivered himself of an address concerning tho profligacy of tho Electrical Commission which was not understood by anyone, but which was loudly applauded by all. When he finished he had a fiill house but still not a quorum, and loud calls of "Emsheiiner,' , "Einsheimcr," were heard. Tho Senator took it as an insult to bo asked to speak after Garbey and refused for once to nrntA. ! It finnlly dawned upon Gnrbcy thnt he was being made the butt of a juke, and he left the chair.

San Fbaxcisco, Aug. 25.?A doubleleaded article in this week's issue of the | Weekly Argus contains the following significant paragraph: "Wo think if tho Republican leaders will scrutinize the list of those statesmen who arc not without renroach, they will.not find the list a very large one, in fact of men living at the present moment we fail to see why that list should not be narrowed , down to one, tho senior United Senator from California, Hon. Leland Stanford.', Tho Argil* is generally credited with being Senator Stanford's personal organ' so that it would seem that the Senator's Presidential boom has been formally launched.

In the third place the Farmers' Alliance movement, wijich will undoubtedly make itself powerfully felt in the coming campaign, knows Mr. Stanford is its friend and in all matters conducing to the good uf the agricultural community, a combination of these three powerful political factors would sweep all opposition before it and make Mr. Stanford's nomination for the Presidency a political necessity.

Ex-CJonaul Given's Opinion of the Martinique Hurricane. THREE YEARS ON THE ISLAND. Hostile Alllntdo oTilic Xntlvcs During the War of the Jtebelllon-?Faniout as tlio Blrthplaco of Empress luicphinc?Somo Very Interesting Scenes. W.isnixoTox, D.C., Aug. 25.?Twentynine years age, during tliu early part of 1802, President Lincoln appointed Mr. William F. Given of Washington, United States consul to Martinique, au office which lie filled for throe years, returning in the latter half of 1803. Mr. Givun is still quite a young man, engaged in active business pursuits, and, although more than twenty-five years liavo elapsed since Iio returned from the island which Franco prizes most Kiiiuug iier ? uai> iiiuiuu puBausoiuno, ??recollections of Martinique aro of the most vivid and interesting nature, and lie points out a great many inaccuracies in the published accounts of the recent terrific storms in the if land, which he regards as something of an unusual occurrence and not likely to happen Again in many years. Tho ex-Consul has the history of the island, which, by the way, is of a most interesting character, at his finger tips, and his observation of a meteorological nature fully as entertaining. Martiniques is famous us the birthplace of the liinpress Josephine*and u magnificent to her memory is erected a few miles out from Fort Da France, which is the capital of the province, and not St. i'ierre, as was published in some of the metropolitan dailies at the time of, last week's storm, in which so many vessels were driven ashore and lives lost The f>ort of St. Pierre, M?r. Given says, is a avorite stopping place for cruisers and fleets and has been ever since the French acquired tho territory from England early iu the present century. Tho famous Maximilian expedition made it n rendezvous and the Confederate blockade runners, the Alabama and Florida, put into the port during his consulate. An effort was mado at tho time to detain tho Florida, but the plan did not succeed, owing to the situation til UlUflilllJUl, nillLII HU UCOWI IKUa uo u lartre open roadstead, semi-circular in form, an<l affording little protection to vessels during a hurricane. The town itself id built upon a rock formation, which is a characteristic of the whole island, nnd on that account is regarded us peculiarly free from earthquake shocks and other volcanic manifestations, although a vulcano not quite extinct is situated at not a groat distance from the city, and earthquakes have occurred. Mr. Given's first day spent at St. Pierre was celebrated by a visitation, and during his" stay two others were felt, but with no serious results in either instance. lie thinks Martinique the moat picturesque island of the West Indies, of which he has visited quite a number, and .St. Pierre the most picturesque spot in it. The city is built upon a stoop and rocky elevation, and the parallel streets communicate with each othor by meant? of a eerie- of stops that add to the beauty of the place. The population is comprised of negroes to the extent of four-fiftha of the whole number, the rest being a smattering of French, Spanish nnd North Americans. In 1848 the negroes revolted at the time of their liberation and massacred many of the inmates of a large seminary. Tho affair is still remombored as the liloodiest affray in the land's history. A number of the whites in St. Pierre escaped to Now Orleans as a refuge from the infuriated blacks and their hospitable treatment there, the ex-consul thinks, wo* Inreelv resnonsible for the friendly feeling which tho inhabitants held for the Confederacy nnd the South generally during tho civil war. So strong was this leeling that a northern sympathizer conld not be found in tho city, and the United States oHicial was regarded with far from friendly eyes, although* no open unpleasantness occurred at any stage of his term of sendee. One thing which Mr. Given remembers with great distinctness is the size and venomous nature of tho reptiles of the island, and which could frequently be found in plenty on the streots of tho city, where the luxurious vegetation I grows unrestrained. He relates an incident which occur-1 red during a visit of the Prince of Wales j at St. Pierre. Un the outskirts of the j city is a large public gardon, which is characterized ny the most beautiful plants and flowers, and at this place tho authorities determined to give a garden party in honor of the royal visitor. No less "than thirty of tho guests wero bitten by reptiles during tho entertainment, and the wounds invariably proved fatal. The average mortality from that source ovcrv year in St. Pierre alone reaches to the neighborhood of 100cases. Speaking of tho lato disaster Mr. Given said that from all accounts which he had read, the northern part of tho island had sutrered more severely than the country to tho south, a fact which he thinks bears out tho supposition held of late years by meteorologist that the storm belt producing tho fiercest hurricanes is formed in a straight line running through the island of Gaud a uloupo and Dominique, where several terribly disastrous storms wero felt in tho three years Mr. Given spent in tho Indies. Iieavv storms wero of course experienced in St. Pierre, but rarely amounted to hurricanes, although tho Hurricane line in nounoro muu twenty miles to tho north. Mr. Given liaa made the subject of tropical nfornn ft study, and i? convinced that the Martinique disaster was one of nature's freaks, which often come unexpectedly in warm countries.

C., .lag. 23.?A catastrophe in reported by the Treasury Department from thn Arctic region*. It in said that crows of two small fleam whalers, wintering near the mouth of Mackenzie, about 300 miles east of Point Harrow, hare been massacred by natives of that reniun. Ali told, the crews of the two vessels ntimbered sixty persons, well equipped, and provisioned fur a Ion;; siege with rifles and ammunition, not so much for the purposes oi defense as for supplying themselves with game. Heretofore the natives havo boen very friendly to the whites. Many of them are well armed, having been supplied with rides by trading vessels, which have exchanged whisky and puna for furs. While it is n new thing for whalers to winter so far east as these two steamers have, white men have spent winters on shore with the natives and have lived with a good degree of cointort. There nro several thousand natives within the boundaries described. Kcindeer, wild and domesticated, abound, fur-bearing animals are found a day's journov in the- interior, and V 1 * ,1?1._ !? game uirus art* iouuu m grvui' uutna m tint open waters. Whaling crews encainpcd on the land would not bo under any such strict discipline as might he enforced on shipboard, and if their intercourse with the natives was offensive, thov have probablv been overpowered by superior numbers.
