Danahy, deputy superintendent of streets, and Joseph Uurke, a saloon keeper and formerly boss of a gang of street cleaners. All three were ar rested about midnight.

Stokiis Hay, Ont., Oct. 10 On Mon day evening tho steamer Africa, of Owen Sound, coal laden, having in tow '.the barge Severn, of Toronto, also coal '.laden, was proceeding up Lake Huron, bound for Owen Sound, when, owing ito heavy weather, she was compelled to let the Severn go. The Severn being stripped of canvas, had to run before !the gale until Loyal island was reached, where she went on the beach and now lies a total wreck. The crew, who were saved by some fishermen after being in the rigging twenty hours, say that soon after being east off by tho Africa the latter vessel, which had been rolling heavily, suddenly disap peared and they think she went down with all on board. The names of the officers and crew of the Africa are: Capt. H. 1'.

BemHrkable Nerve DlHplayod by the De feni.tut In San Frauclseo'e Celebrated Murder Case. Sax Fkancisco, Oct. 11. Theodore Durrant is a reraarkablo witness. All of Thursday before an audience that narked the court room, ho stoou a nre of questions from District Attorney Barnes, which it seemed at tunes must break him down, with imperturbable coolness. His quickness of wit and adroitness were shown a dozen times. He went over the ground of his direct testimony and entered into the details of his movements in the church on tho day of tho murder without deviating nny in plausibility. Tb cross-examination began with the time that Dur rant first met Blanche Lamont. This was last September a year ago. Ho said he took her to ride on a street car twice and thrice ho accompanied her to other places. These were the only times ho had ever been out with her. Ho emphatically reiterated his state ment that after sho left the car at her school he never saw her again, dead or alive. The district attorney went, back to the statement of Janitor haueman, ot Emmanuel church, that he had seen Durrant at the ferry on the afternoon of the Minnie Williams murder and that Durrant had then said he wus waiting to seo if Miss Lamont would not nass. He told Sademan ho had heard she was going to cross tho bay that afternoon. "Did you make such a statement to Sademan?" asked Barnes. 'I did," Durrant replied. "Who gave you that clew?" "1 got it from a gentleman up town." . "Who was he?" "I don't know, I never saw him be foro or since. I was standing on Tost street when this man tapped me on the shoulder and asked me if 1 was Theo dore Durrant. I told him that was my name. He then asked me if I was not interested in tho disappearance of Blanche Lamont and on my answering in the affirmative, he told mo he would advise me to watch tho -ferry that af ternoon, as sho would cross the bay. Ho then walked oil down the street and I went to lunch and afterwards walked to tho ferry and watched for her all tho afternoon." "Did vou not investigate to learn who this man was and where ho got his information?" ho was asked. "I did not," he replied. 'You knew Blanche Lamont was being searched for and that your name was associated with her disappearance, and yet you permitted this stranger to walk away without learning anything about him?" "Well," said Durrant. "the truth is, that I was so overjoyed at getting a I clew that I did not think of question ing him." , "Is it not a fact that you were not at tho ferry at that time because of any clew connected with Blanche Lamont, but to meet Minnie Williams, whom you expected to como across the bay?" "It is not a fact," said Durrant, un moved by the rapidity of the, question ing or the reference to the girl thought to bo the second of his victims. WON THE TEMPLE CUP. CHINESE JUSTICE. Terrllilo Torture Inlllrted I'pon Men Sus pected of Participation In Outrages Upon Missionaries. London, Oct. 11. The Pall Mall Ga zette publishes a letter from its cor respondent in Ku Cheng detailing tho difficulties attending communication with Foo Chow and describing the trial of a prisoner implicated in the outrages upon missionaries, w nen ine court is ready, the writer says, the aceuscd man is brought in handcuffed. He Is filthy in appearance and has. the wild and ghastly look of a starved man, which he really is. The prisoner opens the proceedings by swearing that ho was nowhere near the scone of the massa cre and then the torture begins. The man. is first compelled to kneel with his bare knees upon a coil of chain. His head is dragged back and his pig tail is fastened to a rack high above his head. A polo is then thrust ucross his legs andtwo soldiers stand on each end of it, crushing tho poor wretch's knees into the coil of chain. The British consul could not staud this method of extracting testimony and insisted that it bo stopped. This was done as far as tho proceedings in tho court room were concerned, but for an hour Afterwards the shrieks of tor mented prisoners could be heard com I Ing from an adjacent room, where the torture was continued. When the magistrates wanted to hear the confession of a tortured man the prisoner was brought back into tho court room. If ho held back his con fession he was threatened with resumption- of his torture. This was usually sufficient to cause the prisoner to tell all he knew rather than return to the torture chamber. Besides tho torture described the prisoners were beaten with bamboo sticks until their yells was most horri ble to hear. One prisoner appeared in the court room unable to walk from the beating he had received, and an other was unable to kneel because his knees had been broken by tho chain links and his thighs had been lacerated by the strokes of the bamboo rods. In the midst of such misery cakes, fruite, tea and wine were served and partaken of by the native officials. The correspondent declares that the powers ought to demand justice with out torture, reaching tho mandarin as promptly ns the man who worics in ino field. The whole business lies at the door of corru pt officials. MaJ. Armes Liberated. Washinoto.v, Oct. 11. Judge Brad ley yesterday ordered the discharge of Maj. Armes from custody of the mili tary authorities, by whom he was held under orders of Gen. Schpfield as act ing secretary of war. Tho court said that Maj. Armes' arrest and confine ment was in violation, not only of tho spirit but the letter of army regula tions, and that in whatever capacity Gen. Schofield may have acted, bo it either as lieutenant general of the trmy or as becrctary of war, his action was unwarranted, Illegal, unjust and 'yrunnk'al... .. . ..... . .- The Cleveland Baseball Club Captured the Coveted Trophy by Defeating the Balti more. Baltimore, Oct. 9. Tho Temple cup goes to Cleveland, and, as last year, the champions must be content with sec ond place in the contest for the prize. Tebeau and his Spider aggregation took Tuesday's game with something to spare, neither side scoring until the seventh inning, but despite the goose eggs and cold weather, there was lots of enthusiasm because of numerous brilliant plays. From tho opening of tho seventh inning until the teams had left tho grounds, there was excitement to spare. Up to the end of the sixth inning there had been but three hits made off Hotter. Young was the first man up in the seventh. He cracked out a double; Uurkett singled and McKean sacrificed. Young was, how ever, held on third. Kelly's error in dropping a ball from Childs' bat al lowed Young to score. Singles by McAleer and Tebeau and two dumb exhibitions by Gleason and Carey gave tho Clevelands two moro runs. Three singles and an error netted them two in the succeeding inning. ; Baltimore earned one run in the sev enth inning. In this inning an incipi ent riot followed Tebeau's attempt to spike Holler as he ran past first.' Re turning to the base, Holier vigorously mished Tebeau, felling him to the DTOund. Excitement rau high as the players rushed in from the field, while veils and imprecations unou x.ne air, The champions added another tally to their score in the ninth and at one time had a chance of winning tho inline:. With two out, McGraw and Keeler drew bases on balls and Jea nings was hit by the pitcher. The crowd meantime was wildly encour aging the home players and trying to rattle the others. v ltn uie Dnses iun, Kelly was besought in frantic terms to .bring them in. The best ho could do was to single, scoring McGraw. ; The crowd left tho grounds in bad humor, hundreds of them lining up about the players' club house awaiting the appearance of the Cleveland team. The police were, however, prepared for any outbreak that might occur and quickly drove the mob back until a pas sage way had been made for the Forest City men. As they hied into their stage a platoon of mounted police surrounded it and opened an avenue for the bus to drive through. Several policemen rode in the vehicle, while others were on top. The formidable array, of blue coats deterred the crowd from making any hostile demonstration and the team reached its hotel without molestation.

The Arrival of an American Gunboat Pre vented a Massacre of Missionaries. New York, Oct. 8. Rev. Thomas L. Boyle returned to his home in Pater son a few days ago after an absence of six months in China, whither he went as a missionary. At the, very begin ning his labors wero interrupted by sickness, followed by other dangers. Be left China in almost a dylng cpn dition, but is recovering hishealth. In relating the experience of the Chris tians in China he saidr We were in Wuhu when orders came for the mas sacre. .OJording to these orders the massacres were to have begun in Y uhu and we were to have been the first victims. The orders came on a Tuesday to the effect that all tho foreigners were to be put to death and the natives at once proceeded to erect a theater. Whenever unv such work is to bo done a theater is first built and a per formanco given. The performance is of such a nature as to work the audi tors up to the highest pitch of excite' nient, when they are ready to commit all kinds of crimes. Fortunately for us an American gunboat happened to como up the river! There were alto gether twenty-seven missionaries in Wuhu, there being- nineteen in the house where I was located. We each received from the British consul a rifle and 180 rounds of ammunition. The women of the party were armed with revolvers. The presence of tho gun boat, however, prevented. When I left the governor of the place said that he could not prevent the massacre. Kev, Boyle said he believed tho orders for the massacre! of tho Christians came from l'eking. . BISHOPS CHECKED. KnlHrmml House of Bounties Refuses to Surrender a Valued Prerogative. Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 8. The house of deputies of the Episcopal convention yesterday placed itself op record as being unwilling to surrender one of its most valuable prerogatives and practically the only one that en ables it to hold, tho whip hand in pre ventinsr the houso of bishops from miLkinp- of itself, if it wero so dis' posed, a literal oligarchy. But for the fact that it is now recog nized that tho present debate ia but an interchange of opinions between rep resen tatives of the various dioceses and that tho old constitution is likely to re main the foundation of the church, the refusal of tho convention to re enact the clause putting into effect within three days all legislation con cerning which the bishops had made no sign might be fraught with $ rave consequences to the church. This clause, which wa3 omitted from the new revision, enables the house of bishops to indefinitely kill by failure to act, all matters with which it may not be in accord. Tho result would be to make the lower, or representative house, little more than a spoke in tho wheel of the church. Beelded in Favor of the (Sorarnment. Washington, Oct. 8. Justice Hag- ner, in tho supreme court of tho Dis trict of Columbia, rendered his opinion esterday in tho celebrated Potomac Flats case in favor of the govern ment, some years ago the united States began extensive works in re claiming the marshes and flats in the Potomac river fronting the city, and have made 750 acres of these marshes into solid ground, to the great improvement of the health ol the city.

The repab licans ot Indianapolis suffered the heaviest defeat in the history of the city in the municipal election yester day.
