The Plaintive Cry of an Old Darky. MR. MADEN FATALLY SHOT By a Negro Laborer—The Negro Says They Quarreled About the Key to a Shanty. At Henryellen ,a mining camp twenty miles east of here, about S o'clock yes terday morning, a difficulty occurred be tween James Brown, colored, and James Maden, white, resulting in the death of Mr. Maden. The particulars, as given to a State Herald reporter by Mr. J. E. Lacey, by whom Mr. Maden was employed as fore man, are as follows: James Brown expressed a desire to en ter a certain shanty, to which another negro present objected, and when Brown insisted on entering the shanty, the key to which he happened to have, the negro objecting appealed to the foreman, Mr. Maden. Maden demanded and was given the key and forbade James Brown enter ing the shanty, whereupon Brown cursed Maden, and when Maden attempted to resent the insult Brown whipped out a pistol and shot Maden twice, each ball taking effect In the breast, resulting in the death of the foreman instantly. The negro, Brown, broke for the woods and was soon out of sight. Brown Captured. Brown was arrested yesterday after noon near Vincent. He was captured by Mr. J. F. Bates and Mr. A. M,. Dodd. The negro had Just passed the tele graph station when a descriptive tele gram was received asking for his arrest. He did not resist and admitted killing Maden, claiming that the latter was beating him with a stick. The prisoner was brought to the city yesterday evening at G o'clock and a charge of murder entered against his name at the county jail. Through the courtesy of Warden Will Reeve3 a State Herald reporter was per mitted to interrogate the negro regard ing the killing. Brown seemed very low-spirited. He is chocolate colored, medium height and weighs about 150 pounds. His features are,not inviting and they wear a coura geous and determined expression. He seemed to be impressed with the gravity of the charge against him, but claims that he was provoked to*do the deed. Ills story in substance is as follows: The Negro’s Story. He said: “Yesterday morning was very cold and I was sick and didn't want to work. I went down to where the men were at work to get the key to the shock. An old black man there had the key and gave It to me. It seems some one had been stealing clothes and provisions out of the shock, where several of us slept. When 1 had gone a short distance a ne gro man told me to give him the key, and said he was going to the shock, too. I didn't give him the Key, but told him to come along with me. Then he asked Mr. Maden to make me give it to him, but I didn't and the two then rushed on me and took it away from me. I started off and Mr. Maden called to me to come bark and go to work and when 1 walked off he threw a rock at my feet. We had some words and he cursed me and ran at me with a stick. He struck at me and the stick hit my wrists hare where you see the scratches and the blood on my hands. Other blows fell on my head and one glanced on my cheek. I got away from him about 15 feet and saw that he was still after me witFTthe stick. It was then that I snatched out my pistol and shot him twice. He ran to me and threw me on the ground, cursing me when he had me down. I thought the bullets had missed him, and heard the old colored man crying, 'Help, white folks, help!’ When he let me loose I Jumped up and ran. I looked nj him as I left. Mr. Maden was lying on the ground, with his head resting on his hand, looking straight at me. I ran off through the bushes." The negro had two revolvers when caught, one of which was empty. The other had three empty chambers. 'After diphtheria, scarlet fever nr pneu monia take Hood's Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier. FOR SALE OR EXCHANGE.

Barcelona, Nov. 25.--A terrible accident resulting in a sad loss of life occurred to day at Palmat, capital of the Island of Majorica, 130 miles south of this city. Eighty persons, most of whom were women, were employed in emptying old cartridges outside the walls of the town when one of the cartridges exploded. There was a large quantity of powder that had been taken out of the cartridges lying about and this was ignited by the discharge of the cartridge. A tremendous explosion, which shattered the masonry of the town walls, which are extremely thick, and doing considerable damages to houses. What the exact loss of life was has not yet been ascertained. The bodies of st v cnleen dead have been found, but it is feared that many more were killed, their bodies, perhaps, having been blown to atoms, as a number of those who were at work have not been accounted for. Forty persons were seriously wounded, and some of them will die. Many of*the dead and wounded were found at consid erable distances from the scene of the accident. They had been hurled bodily through the air by the force of the ex plosion. Some of the dead were terribly burned and mangled, so much so In a number of cases that Identification will be extremely difficult. If not Impossible. WZD ing up our recent lieit your visit to MORROW & MARRIED, YET UNMARRIED. That’s the Position of Two Popular Tuskegee People—Several Serious Fires 4 Reported _ i Tuskegee, Nov. 26.—(Special.)—Cast Tuesday about 12 o'clock Mr. Simon Marx of this place was united in marriage to Miss Tommie Ashers, a young lady who lived near Tallassee. Judge W. H. Hurt officiated, though in order for the mar riage to be legal the party left the resi dence of Captain Ashers and repaired to a grove Just inside the Macon county line, where under a large tree and sur rounded by their friends the ceremony was performed in an impressive manner. The party then returned to the home of Captain Ashers, where a big dinner was given. As the matter now stands the mar riage Is Incomplete. While they were le gally married, yet according to the Jew ish custom they will have to be reunited In marriage by a rabbi. This will be done as soon as the bride, who is now In Mont gomery, has been confirmed In the Jewish faith. The groom is mayor of the city and has been a promtnent merchant here for years. The bride is very attractive and has a number of friends. Saturday night Mr. Lon Torbert and Mr. Thad Kelley, who live at Society Hill in this county, had a difficulty about some cotton. Torbert stabbed Kelley just below the heart with a pocket knife, inflicting a painful, if not serious, wound. The barn at the normal college burned Friday night about 12 o’clock. How it originated still seems to be a mystery. There were twenty-four head of fine cat tle burned to death, besides 1000 bushels of corn and other feedstuffs. Mr. Joel Oswalt, who lives in the sub urbs of town, had the misfortune yester day to lose his barn and a large quan tity of corn and fodder by fire. It was with much difficulty that his ceeldence was saved. Rev. P. C. Morton and family left a few days ago for Roxboro, N. C., where thev will make their future home. Mr. Morton has been pastor of the Presbyte rian church here for the past eight or ten years. Mr. E. M.

He Evidently Doos Not Relish the Canal Commission’s Report. New York. Nov. 25.—Ex-Senator War ner Miller refused today to discuss the report of the committee appointed by President Cleveland last April to investi gate and report upon the feasibility and expense of construction of the Niagara canal, which has Just submitted the re sult of its labors to the president. A synopsis of the report published to day shows that the committee does nof think that the canal can e built for the sum estimated by the company, $69,893, 660. The provisional estimate of the cost the commission places at $133,473,893. The report is said to be unfavorable to the canal company, and certain features of the plan of construction are declared to e impracticable. But the commissioners say that more time should be taken In making physical and typographical ex aminations, and for that purpose they recommend an appropriation of $350,000. It would take eighteen months, they fig ure. to make the necessary surveys and examinations to discover if the plans adopted by the construction company are feasible.

A pleasing feature of Richards & Prin gle’s famous Georgia minstrels, that comes to O’Brien’s tonight, is the doing away with the gaudy satin and velvet costumes and unnatural powdered wigs which have inconsistently made their way into negro minstrelsy, and have re turned to the old-time dress suits and the usual costumes of the six end men. This departure is being done to bring back bygone memories of minstrelsy. In the days when we were boys and girls the songs of the sweet singers were of melody and harmony. Then the end man was to us far more interesting than the circus clown, and when the old plan tation “bfeakdown” made us almost wish we could Join the festivities. In bygone days the size of the company cut no fig ure, it was -the ability to please that counted. The Georgians will be a pleas ant relief to the theater patrons. The company is composed of genuine negro performers, who are picked artists, and the press everywhere speaks of them in the highest terms. “The Fatal Card.” “The Fatal Card,” which is booked for Monday and Tuesday nights of next week at O'Brien’s, is one of the best at tractions on the road this season.

The Commercial club committee ap pointed to work up a sentiment in favor of the Commercial club and increase the membership thereof issued the following address yesterday: To the Citizens of Birmingham: The Commercial club has decided on a new line of policy for Its future guidance, and desires to enter upon a more active campaign for the upbuilding of Birming ham. It will not consider matters re lating to purely class interest, but in stead will concentrate its efforts on such interests as tend more directly to the welfare and prosperity of all classes. In advancing the general interests of the city, individual and class Interests must necessarily be promoted In a great er or less degree, and this the club deems better, wiser and safer than in following a policy which experience has shown only tended to divide and create antag onisms among our citizens. There should be none, therefore, to oppose or criticise a policy so manifestly advantageous to Birmingham. An active campaign Is likewise to be inaugurated in behalf of present indus tries, and to secure the location of others here, and as this lies at the very founda tion of Birmingham's future growth, it should enlist every citizen among us in its behalf. The undersigned have been appointed a committee to Increase the membership of the club, that It may more successfully perform the work it has in hand. Every member is urged to renew his Interest in the club, determine that it shall be the pride and glory of this city, invite all strangers to visit Its rooms, Increase Its revenue so that It can more fittingly advertise Birmingham, attend the club meetings, enter heartily Into Its new pol icy and help create such a sentiment of devotion to Birmingham as will make every citizen a worker for its develop ment and progress. There is power in such a sentiment, and Birmingham must have this before she can hope for any greater things; but with that sentiment to sustain the efforts of the club Indeed the world may be hers! Now let's all work for such a spirit. It Is certainly worth working for, and this committee confidently apeals to our people to help the club in this great work. Don’t stay out another day. Join it, that It may have the power that comes from united effort. There have never been brighter prospects for this people than what now lie before us, and it is with ourselves whether or not we profit by them. Properly sustained, the' Com mercial club can and will accomplish greater things for Birmingham than ever before, though it has already done enough to place all in line with its ef forts. T. L.
