Last evening Ben Hope, a farmer, living one mile north f Gaylord, came in from the field from work bringing his loaded shotgun with him. He set the same down in the corner of the room and went to do his chores. Thereupon one of the small children pro ceeded to investigate the gun with the fol lowing results: The mother was sit ting in the middle of the room with her back to the children, with three other children around her and beyond her; the gun went off, shooting the mother in the left arm and below the shoulder, break ing the bone and tearing about one-third the flesh away: one child about 3 1-2 years old received about twenty-five shots in the face'and neck and another child about 11 years old received about fifteen shots in the face and neck, and the oldest daughter re ceived five in her neck and arm. At this time it is thought they will recover, but amputation will have to be performed upon Mrs. Hope. A Minister Killed. Rockpoht, Mo., July 23.

Her apartments were in a basement reeking with filth. An agent of the society for the prevention of cruelty to children, a policeman and a health physician waited tor several hours yesterday before the woman turned up, and they followed her into her apartments. The air of the room was stifling. Every window was closed and the crevices tightly fitted to prevent the air from enter ing. "in one corner lay the dead body of an infart. Covered with dirt and nearl dead, jiljcp on the floor was a boy seven weeks id. Dr. McKann, of the health board, "-aid the child died through neglect.

The interest in the big boodle case this morning was greater than ever on account of the damaging tes timony given by Ex-Commissioner Lynn yesterday. Today he was subjected to a severe cross examination, but in the main his testimony was unshaken. The mem bers of the firm of Clow & Co. next gave their experience with the boodlers. They testified that Ed. McDonald demanded commissions from them on all orders, and when they appealed to Klelim and the chairman of the board of commissioners and one of the defendants, he said they had better take care of the "boys" or else they would find themselves at the end of their rope. A Hard-man Indeed. Kansas City, July 23. Three days ago A. T. Hardman opened the Lone Star Laundry on Main street in this city. He advertised offering to give $20 a week to learners.

Dixon, ice cream manufacturer, and John J. Ryan in Princess bay yesterday created great ex citement in New York and vicinity, where Dixon's name was known to nearly every man, woman and child. At last reports Dixon's body had not been found. There were three in the party : Dixon and Ryan in one small boat and a third man named Smith in another. They were fishing about two miles from, the Staten Island shore. Suddenly a squall arose followed by rain and lightning. Smith says: "Suddenly I felt as though I had a heavy blow on top of my head and that is the last I knew ior a long time. I heard no thunder and saw no lightning. When I came to I was lying on the bottom of the boat. I wa3 dazed and confused and it was a minute or more before I no ticed anything wrong with the other boat. Then I saw it was filled with watcr.Mr. Dixon was no where to be seen amTMr. Ryan was hanging head down out of the boat into the water, he was nearly stripped of his clothing and he hung only by a rem nant of his trousers which had caught in some way on the boat. It rained so hard I could only see a little distance around me. I managed at last to get an oar in my right hand, and holding Mr. Ryan's body by the waist with my left, I started to paddle to the shore, towing the corpse behind me; I must have worked this way fully three quarters of an hour. Finally I saw a boat putting off and I knew I had been heard. 3Ir. Dixon's body was no where to be seen." Mr. Ryan was also in the ice cream business in New York and had made a considerable fortune. He was a large, fine looking man, of about sixty; he leaves a widow and five children. Mr. Dixon was about 42 years old; he leaves a widow and two daughters. He possessed exensive means. The body of Mr. Dixon was recovered this morning, near the spot where it went down. The appearance of the body showed that Mr.Dixon was not struck by lightning, but wa3 stunned by the shock and thrown overboard and drowned before assistance could reach him. Mr. Dixon wore a dia raond stud valued at $3,000, which was recovered. Singular Coincidence. Eagle Pass, Tex., July 23. The cele brated Arresures case, which was the cause of so much correspondence between Washington and the City of Mexico some months ago, is again attracting attention. Arresures was Mexican by birth and Amer ican br adoption, and resided in this city. Under false charges he was arrested by the Maverickcounty sheriff and illegally turned over to Mexican authorities, who murdered him within twenty four hours. Arresures was given up without the shadow of an ex tradition paper, and the affair caused a ter rible stir. Francisco .Mondragon, who was commander of the state troops into whose hands Arresures was delivered, and who directed the execution, was ar rested and placed in jail. He has been temporarily released on $1,500 bond, but is not allowed to leave the town of Piedras Negras, just across the river from here. Investigation is going on, and Mondragon's enemies claim that if he is not shot he will serve a long term in the Mexica'n peniten tiary. It is singular that of the two chief actors in this border drama, Fij'uicisco Mondragon and Sheriff Thos. Oglesby, one has lost his military command and is in custody, and the other has lost his office, and is now under arrest in Los Angeles, Cal., charged with a heavy defalcation, and is only await ing a straightening out of the requisition papers to be brought back to Texas to stand trial. Died of Hydrophobia. Chicago, July 23. Arthur Mueller, aged 2 years, died yes erday of hydropho bia. Five weeks ago a small black dog bit him. Mr. Mueller was also bitten and had his wounds cauterized, but the child's wounds were only treated with carbolic salve. Last Thursday morning the child was attacked with known symptoms of hy drophobia which lasted throughout the night, and yesterday morning there was little hope of recovery. He lingered along, having periodical convulsions until the afternoon, when ho died in great agony. Little Rhody'a Hum Racket. Providence, R. I., July 23. Searches and seizures under the prohibitory law during the past few days have created only a temporary panic among Rhode Island liquor dealers. The prohibitory law as amended gives the chief of the state police virtually autocratic powers. He and his deputies can search, s&ize, arrest and im prison as they may please. Suspicion, the reasonableness of which they are judge?, is sufficient to justify under the law forcible entry to a private house. Police might as well try to bail out Narragansett bay with a water pail as to endeavor to stop the free sale of liquor in Providence. There are more places selling than under license, and this is because people want liquor and will have it, however stringent the enactments against it. Provincial Succession. Lawrence, Mass., July 23 Yery Rev. C A. McEvery has been elected provincial of the Augustinian Order in the United States to succeed Rev. John P. Gilmore, who has been deposed by Rome. The af fair is the result of the failure of the Augustinian bank In this city in 1883. Father Gilmore was the pastor of St. Mary's church when $o0,000 deposited in the Priests' bank by the parishioners was lost. McEvery was elected provincial In 'S2, and during four years' residence he de voted himself to the task of liquidating the enormous debt. He was a candidate for re election, but Father Gilmore was elected oy a majority of one vote. Gilmore voted for himself. Charges of dishonesty made by the minority wer sent to Rome ending in Father Gilmore's deposition and the In duction of Rev. McEvery Into the office. Trains Imprisoned by Washouts. New York, July 23. Two Tmdges on Harlem railroad between Hillsdale and Craryville were washed away by the flood this morning and all traffic Is suspended on the road beyond that point. The Chatham express due In this city at 10:2.3 was caught between the two washouts and is unable to get either way. The washouts are several hundred feet long and it will require two or three days to repair them. It will be impossible "for the imprisoned train to get through before tomorrow. There are but few passengers aboard the train, otherwise there would be difficulty In finding food for them as there are not many houses In the neighborhood. Track Destroyed. Helena, Ark., July 23. Owing to the formation of an extensive sand bar just below Helena on the 3Iississfppi side, the waters of the river has been gradually cut ting away the bank on this side. Thfa morning a section of the bank about sixty feet wide and 600 eel lone fell into the stream carrying with it the tracks of the St. Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern railroad. The track will at once be rebuilt, but it is probable that another route into the dty will have to be selected. J Her Majesty's Armored Flotilla Keviewed and Inspected at Portsmouth.

The "Waters of the Channel Pre sent a Very Marine Pic nic Scene. lS'el3on's Historic Old Ship Victory Participates in the Nautical Pageant, Decked and Armored. The Great Cannon of the Bijr Ships Boom Forth Salutations to the English Sovereign Loyal Subjects. THE QUEEN'S NAVIE; Jubilee Review of the English Armada at Portsmouth. Portsmouth, July 23. Portsmouth and Southsea have been thronged for days past in anticipation of a jubilee naval re view fixed for this afternoon at Spithead. The crowds have been immensely aug mented this morning by the arrivBl of in numerable visitors from all parts of the country. The weather could not bo more favorable. Everybody is in holiday attire and gay dresses and splendid uniforms with crowded thoroughfares present a brilliant appearance. Special trains brought down from London the lords of the admiralty, members of the house of lords and numerous representatives of for eign legations. The scene at Portsmouth was one of ex treme animation. Hundreds of private craft of every .description, all handsomely decorated and well freighted with gaily dressed people being anchored here. It looked like a gigantic marine picnic. The Bonnie Doon carried scores of Americans. The crowd after It and on the shores were enormous. On arriving at Portsmouth dock yard the favored ones embarked on board the troop ships appointed to convey them from here and from Southampton to Spithead. The first troop ships to leave with guests wore two huge Indian liners, which excited much admiration from the crowds on shore. They were quickly followed by others from the Portsmouth dock yard jetty. The vessels participating in the pageant as paradere" numbered 128 pennants and in eluded squadrons of the ironclads and cruisers, aggregating 34 vessels, 75 torpedo boats, seven gun boats and Iron defense sbip3, divided Into five flotillas, G training brigs and 13 troopships. Besides these 123 ships under drill, there were the imperial and Indian troop ships appointed to carry distinguished visitors, and small vessels and dock yard craft allotted to the corporation of Portsmouth, all of which were well laden and briskly used. The ships were drawn up in four lines, facing the channel, the starboard column being opposite the Isle of Wight, the port column being off Portsmouth. The ships were stationed two cable lengths apart.' the lines being three cables between The flotillas were ranged in double col umns between the port columns of the iron clads and the mainland, and the troop ships were placed In a single column between the starboard line and the Isle of Wight. This made four lines of vessels on one side of the channel and three on the other, ex tending from South Castle to RyeMidshoal, a distance of over two miles. The Mona teur kept clear the east approach to the alley between the ironclad columns, and the Agincourt did the same for the east ap proach to the alley between the divisions and the flotillas. At 10 o'clock two Devonshire tugs blocked the west end to the lines to all but the ships of war and the Manly and Malta at 2 o'clock went on duty, keeping the eastern entrance to tho lines clear, four tugs being under orders of the master of the fleet. Troop ships and other vessels conveying visitors were permitted to make a tour of columns before 2 o'clock after which they took up the positions assigned them. The small vescels appropriated to visitors anchored at 2 o'clock abreast of the torpedo flotillas. The private craft carry ing sight seers must have numbered sev eral hundred. They represented pleasure boats of all nations and climes and darted about like birds of different plumage, im parting unparallelled beauty to the scene heretofore unprecedented. The whole scene, surveyed just belore 2 o'clock, when the naval vessels were all in place, their decorations full flung and their crews in holiday pose, private crafts hur rying to good places and multitudes ashore and parking themselves In the best places to see, the event of the day, was glorious in the extreme. Probably no such fleet was ever before seen in time of peace. Everv class of the British navy was represented". The review of the Crimean fleet by the queen and prince consort thirty one years ago would suffer by comparison with this. Some of the wooden ships which figured in that review were visible in Portsmouth harbor today decked bravely out for the occasion. Kelson's old ship, Victory, was also a conspicuous object and her old timbera cracked again and again as boat after boat passed her, full compliment cheering vlg orously. More than that, the old ship mounted a gun or two and joined in the welcome to the Queen. Shortly after 2 o'clock when order was perceptible oa the water the Euphrates, Crocodile and Maliboa proceeded to west ward of the Osborne and stood In readi ness to escort the royal yachts when the queen embaiked et 3 o clock to review the fleets. The Queen left Osborne houe a few minutes befor 3 o'clock and went aboard the royal yacht Victoria and Albert, ner majesty left the buoy In Osborne bay promptly at 3 o'clock- The royal proces sion proceeded to Its destination and pawed between the llnea leaving the coast defence ships, gun boats and torpedo boats on the port band. Her majesty pasted through the lines of those endless war ahips, each yard being manned with brawny tars. Deafening cheer after ch&rr was sent up from, lusxj crews to greet their wverdgn. But it was until the quten had gone through the double line that the great can non of the bL; ship bean to thunder forii the royal salute with a roar that caused the great Teaeela to roll and the sea to increase Ji its heaving, as shot after shot came boom ing over the water On such vessels as had no masts, turrets, breastworks and decks were lined by jack tars and the queen had no reason to complain of her reception, either on her progress down the line or her return to Osborne which was safely reach ed before 6 o'clock. Taken altogether the vessels which were drawn up in line when the queen passed extended over four miles and even this length was added to by the great troop ships, laden with spectators also falling In to line and saluting the queen as she made her progress. On Monday next all vesals comprising the squadrons wilt put to sea to their sev eral stations carrying instructions for mak ing sham attacks on various undefended positions on the British coast In ordea to test the efficacy of the English land de fensive arrangements. DISCRIMINATION. That was the Allegation Pleaded Be fore the Commerce Commission. Washington, July 23. The chairman of the interstate commerce commission Iisjs announced the decision of the commission in the case of the Providence Coal Co. against the Providence & Worcester rail road. The complaint covers three main points. The commission decides that the allowance of a rebate to parties who ship more than 30,000 tons a year is unwarranted and invalid. The commission also decides that the charge of a higher rate upon ship ments from Providence than those from East Providence Is also unwarranted and invalid. The third point relating to a charge of 8 cents for street hauling is de cided to be a matter which the commission cannot decide. The committee to day gava a hearing in the case of Wm. H. Counclll against the Western & Atlantic railroad Counclll is the colored man who having purchased a first class ticket, charges that he was re fused permission to ride in a first class car and was forced to go into the smoking car The railroad company was represented by Julius L. Brown ot Atlanta, and the complainant by John D Brandon anil Oscar II. Huntley, of Huntsvllle. Mr. Brown interposed some objections to the admission of certain depositions and during a brief discussion which ensued, Mr. Brown stated his purpose to enter a motionto throw out the complaint upon the ground of lack of jurisdiction, this being, he asserted, merely a claim for damages. The chairman said that the commission would not sit here to try any more ques tions of damages, but that mis was much worse. Here were charges of unjust dls crimination against a class of citizens. If there were such a case it ought to arise up on facts which are open, public and notor ious, and there ought to be no dullculty lu regard to them. The objection being overruled the charges and respouses were read. The gist of the railroads reply is that the complainant went Into a ladles cat in defiance of the rules of the company and refused to go into the other car and that It was tho passengers and not the train mcu who assaulted him. The answer admits the duty of the com pany to furnish equal accommodations for all first-class passengers, but it claims the right to classify passengefa, either by the color line or otherwise. After the reading of a number of depositions Mr. Counclll was sworn. He is an intelligent looking colored man, well dressed, .self possessess ed and of good address. He Is a minister of the gospel and principal of the state normal school at Huntsvllle. In reply to inquiries by counsel he told the story of his ejection from the car in which he had taken his seat. He entered the car without objection on the part of anyone. He was toid by some one whom he did not recog nize as a train man that he mu3t go for ward, to which he paid no attention. He was finally approached by two men, one of whom carried a lautern and the other had his hand upon his pocket. The man with the lanlern seized witness, hit him on the head several times with the lantern, cutting his head badly and break ing the glass. Witness appealed to the .passengers but without avail. Ills assasl ants then seized and carried him into the forward car. Thl3 car was very flthy and was full of smoke. As he was being push ed from one car to the other tho brakeman told him this was what he got for not moving when requested Counsel for the respondent opened his side of case by rending u series of deposi tions, one by a pa.senger named Whltsett The following appears to have been the style of Mr. Councill's invitation to change cars: I walked forward to the front end of the car and told Mr. Bivins, the flag man, that I wanted his lantern a mlnuu. I took It out of his hand then turned and walked back to where Counclll was sitting and told him there was to be no more fooilsnnes?, that I did not want to hurt him but he had to go. He replied very Insolently that he would not go, and then I grabbed him in the collar and struck him over the head with the lantern. I knocked him out of his feat and pulled him out. He fell to the floor, and as he raised up he came to wards me and I let him have It with the lantern; I hit him several times before I conquered him and then rushed him out of the car into the darkies' car. he was will ing to go by the time I got through with him. The conductor of the train wa sworn and testified In substance that the colored car on the trip was similar in construction, appearance and appointments to the ladies car, except that one end wm partitioned off for a smoker and was in a little better con dition. If a white man should enter the colored car witness would request him to go out, and If he refused witness would make him go. A white man accom panted by ladies would be compelled to enter the smoker, but after the train started he might go into the ladies car if there were vacant feats. This practice was in compliance with bulletin order of the rond but the orders were not printed. Witness never dfd put a write man out of the ladies car if he behaved himself and never heard of It being done. No Jadv oa the train had requested it. Counsel did cot question the witoex; only regarding the assault as they understood from the commission that it was not essen tial to the matter of discrimination. The fitgman of ths train was sworn and corroborated the conductor. Mr- Brown tubmitted a motion to dis mis.3 the c&se ond the hearing w&s ended. The comcuMioa has not cleared its dock ct of cases assigned for hearing during the present month.

CoprrigMid. feT. by the New York AwvUfrt Pre. Bkkmx, July 23. Tho campaign ajjalaet Russian securities has abated, but the belief on the bourse Is that the cesiatloa of the newspapers ia a mere farce. The renewal: of the raid depends on the power of the small German capitalists having Ra-sia investments to stand a further strain Thk has already taught Russia that Germany has effective means of retaliation for the hostile tariffs and commercial rcslrictioM imposed upon Germin trade and traders. The Russian ambassador's return to Bee lin on Wednesday was unexpected at the embassy and was due soly to the akrut felt at St. Petersburg over the depreciation of Russian securities and the stoppage of Russian credit at all Eurojwan finance centers. Count Schouvaloff conferred with chiefir of the firms of Mcndleon t Blulchrodem and with other eminent bankers and tried to influence them by assuniactn of Ruwk desire to cultivate more friendly ooonoralc relations with Germany. The ambassador,, however, madenoollicial representation oa the subject to the German foreign orace. His statements were communicat ed to Prince Bismarck through, the Blalchroders and as the bankers recommended a cessation of the attacks only on account of German invest ors, the Russians have been nllowed a pe riod of rest. It Is impossible to calculate with exactitude the loss to the holders o Rupslan securities since official Inspiration set the raid goiug. Estimates range from. 15,000,000 to 2.1.000.000 marks as tke amount of Russian securities sold by scared. Investors who were willing to get rid of them at any sacrifice. The bona tide aaloa thrown on the bourse had nothing to car with simulation. 'The tension of the populnce against France is less extreme. The country could not have existed long without some form of action to relieve the strain and the with drawal of Gen. BoulaQgcr from the front and the war policy at the close of the French asscmbbt, as well as the contempt expressed In military circled for hli mobil i7ation experiment, have combined to sootk the public Irritation. Gen. Ferren'a plaa of mobilization Is believed not to to involve the same menace as Boulanger's. A prominent military authority wrtUair; to the Neustcn Nachrlchten of Munich, de clares that if the mobilization of the French army If confided to tHc southern or wU em department It will be simply a cmtljr fiasco. If carried out on the second line of the French defense It will make nco sary the greatest vigilance on the part of the German authorities, but if carried out near the frontier it must be taken as a dec laration of war. The Lrcucc Zeitung takes the name view of the matter and find? comfort In the fact that if France attempts a surprise Germaay will be found In perfect rcadinow. Ad vices from Metz and other frontier garri sons report rencved activity in military movements.
