s V zzmr VOL. VI.—NO 78. WILMINGTON, DEL., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 80, 1879 PRICE ONE CKJiT A KIinVKT r*VD. The War Mews Ikl ITnAerwooda and Holbrooke la Carter tioaaiy -The Ka4 of Extraordinary Niece. A correspondent at Mt. Sterling, Ky., gives a detailed history of the Under wood-Holbrook feud In Carter County. The qnarrel began just after the war, in September, 1865. Jesse Underwood, a son of old George Underwood, got into a bar room qnarrel with a man who oalled for a "Jeff Davis drink," and in tho fight that ensued George Trumbo was shot and killed by Jesse. Many efforts were made by the authorities to aapture Jesse, and in one of the raids on the Underwood "fort" 'Squire Hol brook shot and serionely wounded the young man, thus starting the feud be tween the two famllies.At length Jesse, to avoid so much fighting, went to Iowa, and then there was peace for a time. Hostilities were renewed, how ever, when old George Underwood be bail for some men charged with horsestealing. Tbe war waa soon in ftili progress again, and many were killed on both sides. Lewis Underwood was shot throngh the stomach, and lingered two years with a wonnd through which the process of digestion oould be seen. Jesse came back from Iowa to see bis brother before he died, and the affair culmina ted in a siege of the cabin in which the whole Underwood family had gathered. The siege lasted nineteen days, and finally, when a surrender was agreed to, nothing waa done by the authori ties, and through the agency of Jesse peace prevailed again. Besides being a specially good shot, Jesse had fallen iu love with a neighbor's daughter, and it wonld have been considered a breach of etiquette to shoot him daring his courtship. From this point the correspondent goes on as follows:— Old George promised JeBse that he would sell ont and move to Iowa, and Jesse again started for tbe West, tak ing a yonng wife with him. Travelling overlaud to a point on the Ohio, where he intended to take a steamboat, he was followed by the Sheriff of Lewis oounty—the old rewards of the killing of Trumbo, twelve years before were thought to be still outstanding. They ambushed in the path of the bridal conpie late one night, and as they pas sed opened fire on them, badly wound ing Jesse at the first shot. But he fought desperately, killed one of the posse outright, and wounded two oth ers before he fell, bleeding from half a dozen shots. He was taken to the Bath Connty Jail, a new indictment for the murder of Trnmbo is framed, and he was in jail awaiting trial, when in the spring of 1878, he esoaped and made liis way back to Carter. His wife waa dead, meanwhile, but his brother Lew is was lingering from the wound of a year before. Jesse only left tbe fort thereafter to attend church meetings, but with the precaution of two revolvers and his shotgun. The hatchet was buried for nearly a year. May last that it was dug np, and the complete wiping out of the adult Un derwoods was the result. On that day Elverton Underwood was shot while surrounded by his obildren. Two bul lets passed through his body. They were fired from amimsh. Jesse olaimed that he traoed the assassins to 'Squire Holbrook's and that the tracks of one of them were those of the old 'Squire himself. But his brother Lewis was dying, and Jesse did nothing until in September death released the boy from two years of great suffering, when the bloody work was renewed. The boy died September 1. Septem ber 5 'Sqnlre Holbrook and his son were shot at as they were catching a horse in the pasture adjoining their bouse. A rifle bail passed through tbe old 'Squire's brain, aud be fell dead. The sou escaped. September 8 Wm. Underwood was shot through the heart while at work. September 12 DavidAVilson, of the Holbrooks, was shot at from ambush, and his left arm shattered. September 15, as old George Underwood was stepping out of the door of ihe fort sixteen shotB were fired from behind tire trees opposite. Ho was badly wounded in the arm and shoulder, and the women dragged him in aud sent for Jesse. Jesse was ont in the forest and at once hastened home. Just as be was entering the door one of the three shots from the brush-oovered hillside opposite struck him iu the shoulder,and pausing through his left lung, came out on the other side of his body. He fell across thedoorsill. but the ready hands of the women dragged him in before another shot oould finish him. Then began a drama unparalleled even in the history of these monntain outrages. The Holbrook faotion rose from their mliush,and rushed yelling to the door, nside there were huddled a dozen oineu and children and on two eoru «sk pallets the father and son were ying mortally wounded. There was ittle to eat or drink in tho house, wound it the Holbrooks established a sordou of sentries, and for seventeen lays the door was never opened, ex lept that a shot warned tbe women to ilose it speedily. On Sunday, four lays after Jesee was shot, the wails of he women inside gave notioe that the "an wrb dead; but, as they had before refused to allow auy doctor to go to the relief of the wounded men, so now the besieging party gave notice that any ■nan or woman, either in the house or outside, who attempted to bury the •cad man, would need to arrange for bis or her own funeral, in this stress old George Underwood Jid manage to get a message to the ' (in nty Judge at Grayson, nineteen niics distant, asking him for protec ion. That offloial ordered the Sheriff <> take a posse, bury the dead, and •riug to Gray sou the women, children, *nd the one wounded survivor; but so Heat was tbe terrrorism that the Sheriff culd induce not a single man in the °nnty to accompany him. Then the mveruor was telegraphed to for a com "»ny of militia, but without suocees. Un Sunday, Ootober 12, the four wo ?®fl. a daughter, with two nieces, and "e steter-in-law of the old man, wsre "'spina watoh beside his pallet. At a beck at the door the women peered ■tit throngh a loophole and saw ajgroup came a of It was on the 20th of he by of Mm* tw.nty men with blackened Inert in th. yard. They d.manded ad mittance, averring that Caleb White and John Martin had been seen to enter the house. They promised safety to the eld man and'tbe women if they were allowed to enter. The old man consented, and they searoked the house wlthont finding the men, but they seis ed old George's arsenal. It consisted of six guns, fire pistols, three bowie knives, and a sword. They laughed as they uncovered Jesse's corpse and then asked the old man to show hia wounds. Old George stooped over to take off the bandage. ''Let's bring this meet ing to a dose," said the leader, as he raised hia gnn and emptied a load of buckshot into the old man's body.— Another at the same moment shot him through the head, and he fell forward on his face dead. Through the wound in hie body a man's fist might be throat. Then the band went away. The father of the Underwoods had, in some time past, befriended Frank MoFarran, of Olive Hill. The morning' after the mnrder Agnes McFarran went about among the neighbors begging for asBistanoe to bnry the dead at Fort Un derwood, but no one would venture.— Then the girl and her father started for the house alone. They expeoted noth ing short of death, but happily found that the besieging party, having finish ed their work, had disappeared. The scene inside the cabin cannot be de scribed, but with the helpof theX'nder wood women the two bodies were giveu decent burial, theories of the mourners echoing throngh the stillness of the for eat. A Tragic Dcatb. George Winner was the fireman of the four o'olook express on the Reading route from New York which left that city on Tnesday evening far Philadel phia. When his train was between Koeelle and Cranford, New Jersey, it passed coal train 81, east bound, the fireman of whioh threw off a piece of slate taken from tbe coal on the tender. The slate passed throngh the window of Ihe express engine, shattering it to atoms, and terribly crushing Win ner's skull, train was stopped and be was taken to a drng store, where bis bead was dressed. Less than an hour after he was a corpse. The fireman of the coal train, unaware of the fatal results of his aotion, reported on his arrival at Elizabeth "that as he threw out a piece of elate he heard some glass crash in the Philadelphia exprees." When he re ceived the news of Winner's death he wae prostrated with grief. The victim leaves a bride at Sommerville, New Jersey, and his father is an old and highly-respeoted looomotive engineer.

The tug Daniel Brown fastened on to the bark Henry Kobbe.from Providence, this morning, and steamed down the Bast river. When off Pier 50 there was an explosion. The noise, similar to a cannon, startled the 'longshoremen and those at work along tho piers. They looked np, to see the air filled with Hying debris. The tug was no where to be seen and the bark was tossing as if lifted by a great upheaval of the water. Captain H. C. Smith was on board the bark, giving direc tions as to the lines. Suddenly, as he was giving orders to the pilot of the tow-boat, she rose ont of the water seemingly, and the air was filled with pieces of splintered wood and iron. Her boiler had exploded. What there was left of the shattered hulk went to tho bottom immediately. At the time of the explosion there were fonr men on the boat. Fireman William Van Aken and deck hand Daniel Haveland were missing. It is supposed they were instantly killed and tlieir bodies scattered over the water with the flying debris. Officer Bedell, of the steamboat squad, shortly after the explosion picked up on Pier 38 two pairs of trousers, badly rent, the log-book of the tug-boat and one vest. John Stewart, the cook, bad a narrow escape. He was blown into the water and rescued by a row boat. He was only slightly bruised and out. George Coons, the engineer, was severely injured, and as his bronzed form was taken out of the water and conveyed to the pier the horror-stricken crowd fell back and made way for the bearers to convey the moaning sufferer to the Seventh pre cinct station house, in Madison street. Around Captain Hillard C. Smith thronged eager questioners, although he was almoBt stunned by the terrible scene that had jnst taken plaoe before bis eyes. Captain Smith thinks the cause of the explosion was a flaw in the boiler. are much more GRANT AN A SPEAKER. His Homespnn .Talk at Gold Hill.

Colonel Robert Taylor delivered the address, to whioh the General responded as follows: Mr. President, Ladies and Gentle men, Members of the Sooietv of the Paciilo Coast Pioneers: Your president has already said what I feel in appre ciation of my reception here. Nothing which I received abroad was such a source of pleasure to me. I do not mean by that to disparage my greeting abroad. It was honest aud hearty, aud showed the high esteem felt for our country by foreign nations. It would have been quite different a cen tury ago. Now we are regarded as tbe most powerful nation on tbe earth. We have much whioh European na tions have not; that is, we have a pop ulation which as yet does not threaten to crowd any inhabited dis trict or exhaust the productive ness of the soil. We have an ex tensive soil and immense undeveloped resources to exhaust before our popula tion will become so dense as to make the raising of sufficient to livo on a seri ous problem. In this respect we have great promise for the future. The fact of tho matter is thought of abroad than we think of our selves. Yet at the same time we think considerable of ourselves, aud we are a little conceited over our advan ages. [Langhter.] Newspapers and politi cians, however, think there are a good many bad people in tile world, and that things are on the verge of ruin; but I guess we aro all right. [Laugh ter.] Still we can be improved. If I was not an American, I wonld not dare to talk like this for fear of being mobbed. [Laughter.] 1 thank you all for this kindly expression of your esteem. esteem. A Wild Man. iu Colusa county, California, there is a "wild man," who liveB in the woods, obtains food by robbing sheep herds' cabins, and wears no attire ex cept a breech clout. He is described as 35 or 40 years of age, apparently, with a long, shaggy beard, long and irregular hair, and a body burned by the sun to a toffee color, and in many places covered with a thick growth of hair. No oue has been able to learn his history or who he is. Occasionally he meets hunters or travelers, and asks foi tobacco, but he refuses to an swer any questions, and as soon as he gets his tobacco starts back for the brush. It is supposed that he was originally a fugitive from justice, and that he has become so accustomed to his solitary life that it is second natnre to him. marine Dlaaatera.

A Maw Who wag AeooMta* «f Charge of Harder, Iwl.S hr Hob. 8t. Louis, Oct. 29.—A "Globe Demo crat" special from Keokuk, Iowa, says: "The case of 'Bill' Young, whose trial for the murder of Lewis Spencer and fonr children near Luray, Clarke Coun ty, Mo., in 1877, closed at Kahoka on Saturday last and resulted in a verdict of not guilty, culminated to-day in a resort to mob violenoe. There was strong circumstantial evidence against Young, but the proseoution was greatly weak ened by the fiasco of Detective Lane in attempting to acoount for the bloody overalls. Although acquitted, a ma jority of the people of Clarke County were convinced of his guilt, and, how ever much they may deprecate lynch law, it is safe to say that thepnblic at large who had read the evidenoe shared this opinion. It was not known or even spread outside of Clarke County, how ever, that any move would be made to execute summary punishment. On Sunday afternoon Yonng was married, at Kahoka, to Miss Lydia Bray, of Ohio, to whom he was engaged before his arrest, and who has been in this State for the past four months assisting him in preparing his defense. They arrived in this city on Monday evening, and remained here until this morning, when they left for Young's home, near Luray. Their movements had been closely watched. Last night a mob, numbering from 100 to 200 men, assembled north of Kahoka, and was wailing there this morning when the train passed. Finding that Young went on to his home, they followed on hurse back and in wagons, and, after his ar rival there, surrounded his home, and demanded liia surrender. Young who was acoompauied by J. C. Coffman, of Toledo, Ohio, one of his attorneys, refused to surrender and opened fire on the mob. Shots were exchanged and firing was kept up nntil Young was wounded. Eight men then forced their way into the house, took Young out and hanged him: The most intense excitement prevails. to the no he the to of of He of Virginia BeadJ alter*. At a meeting of readjustee in Freder icksburg, Va., on Tnesday night, J. L. Powell, candidate tor State Senator, de nounced John Taylor, of the "Recor der," to the audience as "a liar and a coward." Taylor drew a pistol, but it was struck down before it was dls charged. Powell then drew his pistol, bnt was immediately disarmed. There was great confusion in the meeting, but appeals from leading citiaens restored order, and Powell resuming the stand, improved the occasion by saying that ■'those who wonld not meeet him as gentlemen were liars and oowardB." Later in the evening the difficulty be tween Powell and his editorial critio was Battled by mntnal retractions. Bazar4's Baai— A Washington correspondent writes: The friends of Senator Bayard says that he is taking a great deal of qniet comfort over the Ohio election, for he does not believe that Senator Thnrman and tbe other fiat money Democrats in Congress will be so anxious to kiok him off tke Finanoe Committee as they weie last spring. Mr. Bayard believes that the next National Democratic Conven tion will deolare in favor ef hard money principles, which he alone, of all the prominent Democrats in Congress, has been advocating. Mr. Bayard looks up on the downfall of Thurman as a vindi cation of himself and the course he pursued in Congress last session. The Weal Point (Va.) Fire.

The Evening Republican of Philadel phia says: "Mr. O'Byrne of Delaware," is the way our silver-tongned John spoken of in the New York papers.— "Mr O'Byrne" went to Brooklyn on Monday, and in the evening he sat in the Academy of Music listening to Sam Randall talk about the "clean and economical administration" of Lucius Robinson. Sam does not appear to be posted in New York. How' about that railroad <200,000 steal, in which Gov ernor Robinson figured so conspiouous the a in John O'Byrne made a speech too, which we will condense in a few words: [ "The Democratic party secured to Irish men their citizenship, and they won't rote against a party that has done | them this favor." When John said pied, will only hold about 8,000 per sons, ly? this, some person in the audience shout ed : "Hooraw I" in a brogue that could not be mistaken. Evidently the poor fellow thought "Mr. O'Byrne, from Delaware," was telling tbe truth ; bat nobody kDows better than the r Mr. O'Byrne, that Irishmen had their citizenship secured to them long before the Democratio party, as we understand it, was thought of. The "Herald" of this morning, gives a considerable portion of the speech of Mr. O'Byrne, and states from a Demo cratic paper that there were 16,000 per sons present. At the outset of Mr. O' Byrne's speech he was met with cheers and hisses for John'Kelly, but finally his silver-tongued eloquence prevailed, and order was restored. The New York "Tribune," of to-day, ridicules the idea of 15,000 or 20,000 being present, as the bnilding, when every inch of sitting or standing room in it is occn same Entertainment Tbla Evening.
