KDglnnd Trying to Oat tho South African Kriiuhllc and It« Rich Gold Mine«. Johannesburg, South African Repub lic, Deo. 80.—Women amt children are rapidly leaving this city, as a revolution seems Imminent. Thu foreign element, consisting In the main of British invest ors, formed a secret organization for the purpose of overturning tho Moer govern ment of President Paul Kruger. General .Toubert, the commander In chief of tho Transvaal army, has been hurriedly summoned to Pretoria from Na tal to lake charge in case of an uprising, anil the Staats artillery has been ordered to be In instant readiness. Thu cause of tbe trouble lice In the al leged oppression of tho government, but tho real reason Is that England has. begun another "grab'* game. The yearly output of the gold minus ol the Wllwatcrsrand district amounts to $40,000,000, and this Is what England wants. There was an attempt at revolution on March 4, IMHO, when President Krngoi narrowly escaped a mob by running away at 4 a. m. and driving at top speed to Pontahofstroom, 80 miles away.

Tho Debate thou proceeds to argue upon the danger to French Interests of allowing England to seize tho Transvaal. The Merlin dispatch soys, "Tho action of tho Ultlamlers in the Transvaal has given rise to an unusually violent explo sion of anti-English fueling iu the Gor man press." The National Zeitung is quoted ns fol lows: "Germany, Portugal and possibly Fronce cannot allow the Moor republies to become tho exclusive prey of England, and especially of such n dangorouj person age ns Cecil Rhodes." Tho Times' dispatch then continues: "It cannot ho denied that while tho rela tions between tho English and Gorman governments are In no way cordial, a widespread fooling of animosity against England exists In Germany." An editorial In Tho Times complains that the French and German press are criticising England without properly grasping the history or geography of tho question. Tho Tlmus believes that no des penile remedy, such os an appeal to force, will bo required. "Some reasonable concessions," It con tinues, "even though not all that the Lit landers might rightfully claim, might avail to postpone a oonlliot. " CONGRESS FORECAST.

The Coroner's Jury rinds No One to Itlaine Kzr.ept the 1'eoplo Themselves, HAI.T1MOHK, Doc. 30.— At the Inquest over the victims of the Front Street tho ntor disaster the coroner's jury found that no one wns to blame except tho people in tho audience, who lost their beads and brought on tho panic. Tho members of the jury viewed the boijy of .Ipnnio Ilunekel of 30!) Albemarle etreot. and Dr. A. Klerle performed an autopsy In this case to determine tho cause of death, which was shown to have result, ed from suffocation. It was certified to Die jury that the same cause held In all the other cases, and no other autopsies wero made. Twenty witnesses wore examined, and the Incidents of the disaster wore rehears ed without materia) change being made In tho facts ns heretofore published. Thorn was plenty of testimony to tht effect that gas had been escaping in the Front Htrcot theater for many months, and that the managers of the house have been repeatedly requested to remedy it. Two men also testified that, In their opln Ion, tho cry of "Fire!" which brought on the panic, was raised by thieves for the purpose of robbery. It was brought out that various articles were stolon during the frightful crush. Including a great portion of the box office receipts for tlio night, n pair of diamond earrings, which were snatched from a woman's ears, and a largo number ol overcoats, canes and umbrellas. Witnesses also swore they saw two men running away from the theater after tho panto was under way, and that tho fugitives refused tu atop when called upon to do so. Tho jury rendered tho following verdict; ".lennlo Monokel came to her death on Friday, Deo. 37, at Front Street theater from suffocation, said .suffocation being the result of a panic on tho part of people who wore there assembled. Tho jury, after carefully examining a large number of witnesses, are convinced from the testi mony submitted: First.—That there was no just ground for tho stampede which ensued. "Secondly.—That tho cry of 'Fire!' which was raised was without foundation. "Thirdly.—That If tho audience had remained in their scats no one would have been Injured. "Lastly.—That wo can attach tho blame to no one except to tho audience Itself, which became panic stricken and raised a cry of Flrel' simply because someone had lighted a leaking gas pipe, which leakage was so trivial that witnesses testified that It could have remained burning for hours without danger.

On the llth of April, 1893, I suddenly col lapsed, and for days 1 was unconscious, in fact I was not fully myself until July. On September 1st I weighed but 70 pounds whereas my normal weight is 165 pounds. All over m'y body there were lumps from the size of a grape to tbe size of a walnut, my fingers were cramped so that 1 could not more than half straighten them. I had en tirely lost control of my lower limbs and my hand trembled so that I could not drink without spilling the liquid. Nothing would remain on ray stomach, and it seemed that I must dry up before many more days had passed. " I made another round of the physicians, calling in one after tho other, ana by tbe aid of morphine and other medicines they gave me, I managed to live though barely through tbe fall." Here Mr. Thomas displayed bis arms, and just above the elbow of each there waa s large irregular stain as large as the palm of the liana und of a purple color, the space covered by the mark was sunken nearly to the bone. "That," said Mr. Thomas, "is what the doctors did by putting morphine into me. " On the lllh of December, 1893, just eight months after I took permanently to bed—I shall never forget the date—my cousin, Joe Foster, of Carters'Creek, called on me and gave me a box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pule People, saying they had cured him of partial paralysis, with which I knew he had all but died.
