Th Lake Shore Drive
Washing Away.
Chicago, 111., March 80 During the re
cent storms the waters of the lake made
till further encroachments on the Lake
Shore Drive In Lincoln Park. From North
avenue pier for a distance of about half a
mile north tbs drive is impassable, being
washed out in some places and covered
with debris In others. All along the shore
of Lincoln Park and Evanslon great quan
tities of earth have been washed away. One
very remarkable and startling fact is
disclosed in connection with the. en
croachment of tho lake on Lincoln Park,
and that Is that the whole surface of the
lake Is gradually rising at the rate of four
inches per year. The record shows that
the surface of the water is now two and
one-half feet higher than it was seven years
ago. Portions of the Lake Shore driveway,
where are located some of tho costliest
private residences in the city, have been
washed almost completely away. A severe
wind-storm is prevailing to-day, and the
lake is again tempestuous, the waves

Counterfeiting; in the Penitentiary.
Leavenworth, Kas., March SO. There
was considerable excitement in the neigh
borhood of the Kansas Btate Penitentiary
last evening, when It was discovered that
a number of counterfeiters' molds had
been in use for some time by a couple of
convicts, the latter having successfully
made a number of bogus coins. A
quantity of the latter, representing, per
haps, (8, was found in the cell
of one of the convicts. The molds were ac
cidentally discovered in the drying room
of the laundry, where the two convicts
were employed. When they were examin
ed they said that tbey had been assisted by
some of the guards, who procured materials
for them and got rid of the spurious coins.
They named two of the guards, who have
been suspended from duty, pending an In
vestigation, but it Is generally thought the
guards are innocent. The. counterfeiting
had gone on for several weeks.
Improvement in the Telephone.
Younostowx, O., March 80. A test was
made yesterday of a new long-distance
telephone transmitter, the invention of
Dr. Rose, of Palmyra, O. A telegraph
wire was used running to Freeport, 111.,
with a return loop on other polls, making
the distance 878 miles. One transmitter
was placed in the office of the Rose Electrio
Company and the other in the laboratory,
two blocks away. The faintest whisper
was beard distinctly over the long line. It
is entirely unlike the Blake transmitter in
action and principle, and Dr. Rose claims
that with his device conversation can be
clearly carried on by persons 2,000 miles
apart. The test was made in the presence
of prominent capitalists who have organ
ized a company here to manufacture it.
Next Sunday it will be given a severe test
over a wire running to New York, then to
Chicago and back here.

half to-day and is still rising rapidly. It

damage from the flood. The Tennessee
river is rising rapidly at head-waters and
has overflowed iu banks and washed out
the railroads so as to stop all trains from
the Southern route to Nashville.

two names waa handed Mr. Bartlett, who
after scanning' it checked off sev
enteen of them as the names of the
men whom he wpuld employ. The
others, he said, he would not take back.
Attempts of a similar nature were made
by committees of the strikers at prominent
points all over the Gould system. In every
instance the Executive Board claim that
the committee received fthe same reply to
their offers on the part of the strikers to re
turn to work. The railroad officials stated,
it is claimed, that they did not require the
services of all their old employes; that
they would not take them all back, and
would use thjlr own dlscretionjn selecting.
The ratio of the men that the road were
willing to take back to the number who
are on the' strike was, the Executive
Board say, about the same all over the
system ceventeen out of fifty, or there
abouts. Reports of these committees, re
ceived by telegraph, determined the Execu
tive Board to issue their address this after
noon, and to continue the strike nntll the
roads consent to take back all the strikers.
The members of the boards want It dis
tinctly understood that the Knights of La
bor will all hang together; that one will
not return to work without the others, and
that tho men who came out through sym
pathy with the members of District Assem

Bemarkable Longevity of the Ebys of the
Dayton and Richmond Neighborhoods.
Richmond, Ind., March 81. Mr. James
Eby, of Washington Township, is in the
city to-day on business, and though his hair
and beard are white as snow, he is still as
lively as a cricket. He comes from a family
noted for its longevity. His father, Chris
tian Eby, located near Dayton, O., sixty
years ago, and was the parent of thirteen
children seven boys and six girls and all
but one lived to be married. One of the
boys, John, now aged eighty-six, has
been married three times, and ia a
widower now. He went west a short time
ago to grow up with the cbuntrv. Four of
the family were married twice, and eight j
of the family are living. The youngest
(Jacob) is sixty-two years old, and lives in
Montgomery County, O. The oldest is
Elizabeth Coller. who is eiehtv-eieht vears
old and is quite spry. James, who lives in '.
Washington township, Is sixty-eight years .
lived together sixty odd years and never
had the services of a physician and never
used any medicine save roots and herbs.
Christian died when he was ninety years
old, and never was sick a day in his life.
The family is probably without a parallel
in the country.

An Embezzler Gets Into the Penitentiary
In Forty-Eight Hours From Canada.
Chicago, April 8. Speedy justice was
meted out to Charles Stephens in Judge
Collins' Court this morning. Stephens is
an old man, who for fifteen years was In
the employ of the Wilmington & Ver
milion Coal Company, of this city. Fifteen
months ago he absconded, and investiga
tion showed that he had embezzled $21,000
from the company. All efforts to capture
the fugutlve were fruitless, and it was be
lieved ne had gone to Canada. This theory
proved correct, for last Tuesday the com-
K any he had robbed received a letter from
lm dated in Canada, saying that he was
penniless and alone, and rather than re
main another year in Canada bo desired to
return, plead guilty to his crime and re
ceive his punishment He announced his
intention of starting at once for the United
States. The company sent two Plnkerton
detectives to Detroit to meet him. On
Wednesday they arrested him; on Thurs
day he wan brought to this city and in
dicted by the grand jury: this morning he
pleaded guilty before Judge Collins and
was sentenced to three years' imprison
ment in Jollot, and this afternoon be was
taken to the penitentiary.
Strange Accident With Loss of Lire On the
Paclue Coast.
Sax Fraxcisco, April 3. The schooner J
H. Congdon was wrecked off Point Reyes,
forty miles north of here, Wednesday.
Her crew was lost. The coast there is of a
dangerous character. The supposition was
that the vessel had struck a hidden rock.
An examination of the wreck showed that
the schooner had been struck amidships
and cut almost in two, evidently by a
steamer or other craft going at d high rate
of speed. The discovery has caused much
excitement in marine circles, as It is feared
the unknown vessel which sunk the
schooner has gone to the bottom with all
on board. The wrecL occurred before day
light The case furnishes a strange paral
lel to the loss of the Oregon. The Aqulna
is supposed to have been the vessel in col
lision. Double Murder and Lynching.

breast picked up her child and ran to a
ne ghbor's, where she died. The murderers
were captared and jailed. Soon after mid

oners out and hanged them to a railroad
bridge near by, where th bodies were
