So Testifies. He Say Two Deputies Did It When the Strikers Refused to Halt The Jury Cautioned. Wilkesbarre, Pa.. Feb. 5. The most startling evidence so far given at Sheriff Martin's trial was that by John An dreosky today. He was asked whether the tinkers iis.i nnv n-MDOiis along when marched to Lattimcr. and replied: "None, save Gcd." He then went on , to speak of the shooting. "The first shot J was in the air, and came from the vi cinity or the schoolhouse. Then came a volley, and I threw myself on the ground, near a water pipe tunning under j the tracks of the electric cars. When the ' first volley was over I looked up and ! saw the sheriff, and two men step out of the ranks of the deputies and 1 heard ' the tall, thin man call out to a man who j was running away: 'Come back, , or I'll fix you.' Then the two . men raised their guns and fired two or thTw. times at the men running auaj "Do you know who the tall, thin man was?" asked Mr. Martin. "No, I do not." "Do you think you could identify him among" the deputies here?" The witness tried, but failed to point him out. John Yorshekowisz saw the deputy with a revolver, and saw him point it at a striker. Then he heard a shot, from whete it came he could not tell, and then there was a succession of shots. John Jusko, a Magia miner, testified to having been ill-treated by deputies at West Hazleton. Judge Woodwaid told the jurors to hand him anv letters, containing any leference lo the trial, that they might receive. "OTHKLLO" AND "LOIT1S XL Keene Clmnaes His, Hill Both After noon and Even lug. Two good-sized audiences greeted Thomas W. Keene yesterday at the La fayette Square Opera House, both his afternoon and evening performances being, all things considered, remark ably well attended. The biil presented at night was "Othello," one in which Mr. Keene invariably appears to the worst possible advantage, and yet in sists on endeavoring to portray. From the manner in which the powerful title J role was presented yesterday, it would seem that the tragedian acted without thought of the meanings intended to be suggested, and without an idea further than that of making all the noise pos sible. In Mr. Keene's hands Othello became a raving maniac, without any oC the consistent reserve that the Moor retained at all times and Without lim itation further than the strength of the actor's lungs. Any mplo-dramatic villain could have presented the role as Mr. Keene did.

Tlie warehouse belongs to the Chau tauqua Lake Ice Company, and is leas ed by tlie Union Storage Company. It is bodnded by Pike, Twelfth, and Thir teenth streets and Mulberry alley. It is divided into six warehouses, sepa rated by thick walls with communicat ing doors, which are supposed to be closed at night. At S:30 o'clock to-night smoke was seen issuing from the windows of the third iloor over the ice company's plant. A triple alarm was sent in, and for three hours the h'rem'en worked at random, pouring water into the tliicu hisky ploded, and the rear wall of half the building was blown out, rilling up the alley with debris, dragging down elec tric light wires and several smaller buildings and crushing firemen aild spectators.

JOSE BARRIOS KILLED The President of Guatemala Is Assassinated. . if.nJV(i Timf TT ..,-,,.. i..i Jt "elievi-d 1 lint He Y a-, Mai 10 r a itewura .Morales Uld Not Wo It. The news of the assassination of Piesident Jose Reyna Bariios, of Gua temala, was confirmed yesterday after noon at the Guatemalan legation In this city. The first vice president, Manuel Es trada. Cabrera, assumed the executive chair yesterday. The legation has no further details. The fact that the constitutional vice president was installed is legarded as an indication there has Ueen no levolu- i tlon and that the death of the presi dent was an isolated case of rhurdsr. Piesident Barrios was forty-two yeais of age. He was elected on March 13, 1S92, for a term of six years. His term, which would have expired on March 15, of this year, was extended by the constitutional assembly last Sep tember for four yeais. President Barrios was one of the ablest generals of Guatemala and has filled many important positions. He was at one time consul at Berlin. San Francisco, Feb. 9. The only de tails of the assassination of President Barrios, of Guatemala, received here came in private messages to wealthy coffee planters. They all agree in tlie fact that no uprising followed the death of the president, but they do not tell who com mitted the act Prospeso Morales, who was the head of the recent revolution, sent a dispatch today from Mexico, say ing that he was on his way here. In the message he declared that he was not a party to the assassination, and that It was a. great surprise to him, as he expected to see Barrios overthrown by a popular uprising. Morales did everything a man could do to make the recent revolution success ful, but socn after It started he warned his friends here not to mix in it. as the revolt was premature, the people not being thoroughly aroused. Since the revolution ended, however, the feeling against Barrios has in creased In bitterness and had the rev olution been delayed for six months it would have been successful. Just after the revolution ended, a number of Gua tcmalans, who were greatly incensed over the cruel orders of Juan. Aparicio and ether prominent men, who refused lo contribute to Barrios's cause, offered a. reward of $100,000 for the head of the dictator. This reward was guaranteed and it is thought by the Guatemalan colony here that the assassination was committed by some one in the hope of getting this reward. "Very recently Morales' s sympathizers issued a. proc lamation declaring that Barrios would not be in power on March 15, the an niversary of his election. Barrios never cut any figure in: San Francisco like the two Ezetas, because he was a quiet man, little given to showing1 himself on dress parade. Gen. Antonio Ezeta was known to everyone here because he delighted in getting himself up in gaudy southern style, undress uniform of blue coat and white duck trousers, and stalking up and down Market street. Barrios, who spent several months here, lived quietly. His taciturn manucr gave the impres sion that he was stupid, but he could talk well on any general topic and was especially well Informed on military af fairs. His wife was a popular society woman. Manuel Estrada Cabera, who has suc ceeded Barrios temporarily, was min ister of agriculture, and the ablest man in the cabinet. Guatemalans here Ihink that ho will be able to keep the country from 'a revolution, as he did not approve of Barrios's arbitrary course in declaring himself dictator and In nullifying the power of congress.

Arledge. jr., twenty-one years old, living at No. 602 Spruce street, accidentally shot himself about 1 o'clock this morning, and but for a memorandum book which he carried in his j)ocket the result would have been fatal. In the evening: twilight 'of winter time, when the fire sparkles and glows and datices upon the hearth, there arc dreams and air castles of the future in the flames for the young woman who sits and gazes into them. Whether (these air castles will ever become realities, is largely a matter of health. No woman can hope to be a contented wife, the mistress of a happy home and the mother of healthy children who suffers from weakness and disease of the delicate organs that arc distinctly feminine. All the air castles that she builds will crumble into dust, unless she takes measures to cor rect the disorders from which she suffers. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a posi tive cure for all disorders of these most sensitive organs. It makes them strong, healthy and vigorous. It prepares a woman for happy wifehood and healthy mother hood. It robs maternity of its peril and of ncarl'all pain. It insures children with strong, healthy constitutions. Thousands of women have testified to its marvelous merits. For nursing mothers it is the best supportive tonic. When a dealer urges some substitute he's thinking of the larger profit he'll make not of your welfare. " About sir years ago my wife became afflicted with displacement, causing inflammation aud much pain," writes Rev. I. J. Coppedgc, of Klmo. Kaufman Co., Texas. "She could not stand on her feet or get in any position hut what she sut fered great bearing down pain. I ot her a bot tle of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription which she soon found was helping r.cr; so she kept on until she had taken six bottles. Since taking the last she has not suffered a moment from the old trouble." W vtS. l - Hnl WSm eOM PAUL REELECTED Chosen President 'of the Transvaal . Republic.

The issue by the New York Central of a circular letter . ,1.. ..! ,. -.,-,. .. w me siociviioiuers 01 tne laite anore Company, setting forth the terms of exchange offered to them by the for- t mer, was an incident of the day. There were few other developments bearing upon the general market or particular stocks. The pronounced strength of Metro politan Stieet Railway in such a mar ket made the stock the conspicuous feature of the day. Current reports of an issue of scrip, which will be offered for subscription to the stockholders. had no other confirmation than was furnished by the evidence of the stock tape.

The genuine- iil'ss 01 iiju laraous ue Lome letter, tne recall of this gentleman today, prob ably, the belligerency of the Spanish rsoiIe thai is sure to follow, will act like heavy hammeis on the stock mark et. The situation, aside from the Cuban trouble, has exhausted itself as far as furnishing any more bull news. Every thing will be cf one color. That stocks should be sold today and tomorrow anyone would be foolish to question. The story ot the scheme of the North ern Pacific Railway to sell Its millions of acres of land along its line, described exclusively in The Times yesterday, is fully corroborated. Tt is intimated "now I that the stockholders of the railway will ' b& invited tc subscribe to the securities , of the purchasing syndicate. Mercpolitan Traction was one of the few stocks that showed any strength. It was advanced in the morning on reports of large earnings for January and the probability of a scrip dividend to the present stockholders. This issue will amount to 30 per cent, it is said, and it is surmised that it will be of fered to stockholders at par and will subsequently be redeemed by an in crease in capital stock. This news should be worth a further advance In the stock, not in its worth, of course, but on the speculative possibilities of the situation. The Spanish situation, however, may and probably will pre vent any strength airy where this week. The earnings of for the month of $40r,000. the Illinois Central January increased Nothing definite can be learned, but there arej-amomof important develop ments in Norlhwest in the near future regarding the preferred stock, which will result favorably to the holders of (he common. It was probably on these rumors or on the certainty that some may have Ihat the common was bought yesterday. No one ?cems to doubt that the divi dend on Burlington next week will be at least on a basis of5 per cent yearly, or 1-.4 for the quarter. ' Dow, Jones &r Co.. quote "people who are buying the stock," as saying that this will man at least 110 for tlie Ptock on or before the declaration of the- dividend. The people who say anything of this kind are very fcolish to do so, and it will cer tainly be lemembered. If at all, only as a jcke when the time comee, one of Dow, Jqnes & Co.'s little jokes. The stories of rate cutting in Can ada, Pacific are still circulated and are still strongly denied. They are prob ably without foundation. This did not prevent selling of the stock of the road yesterday, however. Washington Stock Exchange- Sales Metropolitan Railroad 5sr $1,000 at 119. Lincoln National Bank, 10 at 120.
