I Arose From the Shooting of

All I Quiet at Present but Trouble May
ComeThe Doings of a Festive Burglar
SAVANNAH Dec20 The trouble at Jes
sup yesterday began at 10 a m when Chief
Marshal Leggett and assistants were attempting
Bob Brewer tho notorious
tempting to arrest noto
rious outlaw and fugitive Brewer raised
his gun and deliberately shot and killed
Assistant Marshal Barnhill The chief
marshal then fired at Brewer but missed
him Brewer returned the fire and shot
Leggett through both legs Brewer and
f Tiis crowd of ten or twelve men then fled to
McMillans swamp The negroes were
followed into the swamp by several citi
zens Among them were William Wood
carpenter and his son William Wood Tho
negroes dodged into the swamp and when
young Wood ran in behind them Brewer
roso up and shot him through the head
killing him instantly and shot Woods
lather in tho face Accomplishing this
much the negroes ran further into the
swamp and escaped The news of the
death of young Wood and the serious
shooting of his father spread like wildfire
over the town Confusion reigned for a
time and Jessup seemed to be in the hands
of a violent mob Mayor Hoff called a
meeting and hasty arrangements
were made to protect the town Sev
entyfive armed men were gathered in
q a few minutes and followed Brewer
and party a distance into the swamp
McMillians swamp covers over four hun
dred acres Brewer is so familiar with its
hiding places that the efforts of the posse
to locate him were regarded as in vain The
strength of the posse was soon increased
by posse of twentyfive armed men and a
picket line was formed Brewer had
threatened the life of Assistant Marshal
Barnhill since tho officers Killed one of
Brewers pals a few weeks ago while at
tempting t arrest a colored man for gam
bling Yesterday was Brewers chance
and he took advantage of the opportunity
When the assistant officer came unarmed
Yto the side of Chief Marshal Leggett who
I I was making his arrest Brewer seemed to
p forget for a moment that anybody was
V trying to capture him and shot Barnhill as
he would a dog
Marshal Leggett who wasbadly wounded
in both legs was seen about the affair last
night He said that when he went up to
arrest Brewer he knew he had a bad man
to fool with He wanted a force large
enough to take the desperado When I
got near him the chief marshal said and
he saw who I was he left two of my posse
who were talking with him and came
toward me I heard him say That
is the rascal 1 want and he stepped
behind Mr Reddish He kept coming and
I threw my gun to my face and told him t
stop He looked at me sullenly and put his
gun to his shoulder and started back I
thought I would return to town and get
assistance When I met an old man named
Rayford and several others all of whom
had guns I turned round to see what they
were going to do and I saw Rayford ex
change a 3 calibre Winchester for a 3
calibre and make threat and curse the
white people I knew we were in for i
so I waited and hadnt long t wait when
I saw Brewer drop his gun to his shoulder
and fire I looked around and saw my as
sistant fall to the ground I then returned
shooting at Brewer Ho then wounded me
at the first fire I discharged both barrels
of my gun andil knew was done and
jumped down the embankment and ran
Reddish stood and Brewer approached him
saying Dn you I have a great mind to
kill you He struck him and took
his gun from him The news reached the
authorities and they knew that J W
Ryan was the instigator of the affair A
posse was sent to his house to arrest him
but Ryan had escaped It is said he put a
Jad idea into Brewers head about the
m duty of white people to colored folk and
report says he excited them by saying that
the murder of a colored man killed by Barn
hill should avenged
Henry Anderson one of the guards put
over Rvans house was accidentally shot
and killed last night by one of his own
party He went t headquarters for rein
forcement and was going back when the
gun held by Townsend was discharged
blowing Andersons brains out Last
night a colored man was shot and seri
ously wounded by a picket while coming
from McMillens swamp He attempted to
slip by the officers when he was shot
At about S oclock this morning a party
of unknown men attacked the jail at
Jessup driving away the guards In a few
minutes the doors were battered down and
four men went inside and shot and killed
Peter Johnson and Bill Hopps The for
mer vas the man who had been wounded
and captured in tho night The military
was stationed about half a mile from the
jail but by the tim a detachment arrived
there everything was quiet and all there
was to indicate what had happeted were
tho bodies of the dead negroes
The Georgia hussars returned to this
city this afternoonThe Brunswick company
was retained on duty by the mayor The
returned soldiers reported the trouble
over their presence was only required t
quiet the excitement The citizens of
Jessup who remained had their kitchens
and out houses filledwith the colored peo
ple of the town who sought the protection
of their white friends
A special from Jessup dated C p m says
that Mayor Hobbs has called a public meet
ng to take steps t defend the town t
o nlght It i believed tnat Brewer is near
with a largo force of negroes Tho citi
zens aro organizing and arming to aid the
Brunswick rifles in case of an outbreak
A special train was run out to the brick
yards where Brewer was reported t have
been seen A detachment of armed men
was sent out as scouts Mayor Hobbs is
in receipt of a telegram from Brunswick
saying that the white man who is supposed
to have instigated the trouble is in that
city but the mayor will not take steps to
have Ryan brought back There is still
great excitement throughout the country
around Jessup but affairs will doubtless
quite down in I few days I is a region
of turpentine distilleries and saw mills
Thousands of negroes arc employed in
Jessup and the trouble is apt to disor
ganize labor for some time t come
Many negroes are quitting their homes
and moving to other towns on the railroad
A largo number of them were taken from
their homos by white men this morning
and severely whipped some of them being
V women of bad character

Chief Marshal Leggett was making his
round Ho saw a negro on the site of the
hotel rapidly firing a rife Its Bdq
Brewer somebody said a people begn to
pour out of the stores The name of the
notorious outlaw and fugitive sent terror
to the hearts of the citizens who watched

a shotgun deputized William Austin Mr
Jackson and W T Reddish to arm them
selves and go with him to arrest tho man

By Which the United States and
South America
I the Commercial Sense of the Word by a
Great International System of Ball
roads and Steamships
WHEELING W Va Dec 2dIn view of
its great importance growing out of the
feeling that inspired the PanAmerican
congress and its gigantic proportions as a
railway enterprise the recently incor
porated Columbia Railway Ii Navigation
company at Richmond Va is likely to
prove a sensation in commercial circles I
The following explanation of the plan as
gained from parties directly interested
will appear in tomorrows Wheeling In
The purpose of the company is to con
struct railroads in South America
steamship lines connecting these railroads
roads with points in the United
States and incidentally every
thing necessary to properly carry
on such business The companys capital
is to be 5100000000 and Captain Parsons
of Virginia is at the head of it Briefly
the objects of the Columbia Railway
Navigation company are as follows To
construct a line of railway from some point
near the mouth of tho Magdalena river in
the United States of Colombia southwardly
along the east flank of the Andes and
headwaters of the Amazon to points in
Peru there to connect with the Peruvian
and Argentine system of railroads From
the mouth of the Magdalena river steam
ships will be run to the southern point of
Florida and New Orleans from whence
will extend a road to connect to all parts
of the country The vastness of the en
terprise contemplated is thu apparent
This continent probably the richest in ma
terial resources of all the continents in the
world is to be opened up to the purposes
of commerce immigration and civilization
its products and people are to TJO brought
into easy communication with the rest of
the world and best of all the direct and
lastingbeneflts of these purposes accrue to
the United States
Captain H C Parsons whoso home is
now at the Natural bridge Va is the
originator and controlling spirit of the en
terprise I is by no means his first diffi
cult and hazardous undertaking on the rail
road line He has been engaged in others
though they were as nothing when com
pared with this For fifteen years Captain
Parsons has given the subject of a north
and south line of railroad in South America
his attention He has traveled and inves
tigated examined and surveyed the coun
try and collected information of all kinds
until he has demonstrated tho feasibility
of his great project and at lasthas brought
it to the point of realization In order
to obtain a more thorough organization
and secure a heartier cooperation In
corporators have been solicited and will
shortly be named in all the southern
states When this has been done and the
organization completed by the election of
officers subscription books willbe opened
and the practical work of making surveys
and estimates inaugurated at once The
only part of the prosposed route that is
unknown and unexplored is fbetween the
sources of the Magdalena ridge of the
Cordillaras in Ecuador Here the moun
tain chain must be crossed in order to pass
from the valley of one river to that of
anotherand in addition to the natural
obstacles are fierce savage tribes who have
hitherto resisted all attempts to explore
their country
The northern terminus as npw proposed
will be Port dirtbiijena on the Curribcan
sea The southern termini will be Cuzcoan
Cerropasco in Peru the distance between
them being about two thousand miles half
of which is along streams navigable by fat
bottom steamers The road will traverse
Pampas del Sacramento perhaps the rich
est agricultural region in the world will
skirt the largest gold and silver mines and
nenetrate forests of untold alue At tlie
southern termini junction will bo niT i d
with the two Peruvian lines railway auu I
the railroad for Buienos Ayreson the At
lantic which road is already in operation
for 400 miles to Alta on the head waters of
the La Plata river Thus different outlets
to the ocean will be secured for products
at present inaccessible
At Cuzco and Corrppasco found the
heart of the gold and silver mining region
which has been popularly reputed to be
enormcuslyjWealthy in minerals find where
it was claimed by some of old church
writers was really the Ophir of King Solo
mon The development of Peru in the
past has been exceedingly slow and at great
cost Its 1300 miles of railroad have
cost the state almost one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars per mile the most costly
road in tho world Notwithstanding this
the constructed portions of these lines have
already been largely paid for by royalty
guano beds What would be the result of
a rapid and complete development of such
resources as it contains can be better
imagined than described Almost as much
may be said for every one of the states
through which the proposed route is to
pass In conversation with an Associated
Press correspondent Captain Parsons
dwelt at length upon tho element of uncer
tainty which must enter into thd problem
on account of the unknown region in the
crossing of the Cordilleras Whether man
can do what has never yet teen done is a
question which the companys engineers
will have to solve in the near future
I must be clear said Captain Par
sons to a casual observer of the matters
involved i that this or some similar i one is
the only practicable channel oy which our
wares can be carried in competition with
those of Europe to the heart of South
America It offers the only possible means
of competing in time with the trans i
Atlantic steamers and La Plata system
of boats By this means travel
ers will be able to make the dis
tance from Lima the capital of Peru
to New York in nine days At Lima he
will be but thirty hours by steamer from
Valparaizo At New York ho is but seven
days from Liverpool FromDChili to Eng
land in seventeen days I it be true that
the United States with its PanAmerican
congress and reciprocity treaties is seek
ing its chief market in South America it
would appear that she can best find not at
Rio de Janeiro not at Buenos Ayres not
upon tho coast fronting England nor upon
the narrow arid plains of the upper Pacific
coast but by piercing to tho centre of the
nutrat once to extra kernelthat all for
eign nations are looking for an opening on
tho outside

Official News from Brazl >
WASHINGTON Dec 26An Associated
Press representative who called at the Bra
zilian legation today to inquire for news
concerning the fighting which is reported
t have occurred at Rio db aheirg f t om the
18th to the 20th inst found tho minister
had just receiyed the following telegram
from Ruy Barboza minister of finance
under the new regime From cablegrams
we learn that unfortunately there is no
speculation from newsmongers against us
which is not credited in Europe in spite ot
all ou warnings against this sort of con
spiracy Reports about the meeting
of corps of artillery are false
There was only a meeting of a few sol
diers which was immediately suppressed
This circumstance has increased her con
fidence in the government which shows
itself strong and prepared with prompt
and decisive means to put down any dis
turbance of the public order The aggra
vation of General Fonsecas illness is not
true On the contrary he is recovering
speedily from his former complaints At
any rate the fate of the revolution is
nowaccepted by the whole country and
does not depend on the contingency of one
mans life however precious it maybe I
tho army itself the revolution can rely on
other chiefs of great prestige and no less
devotion to the cause All the different po
litical parties have espoused with enthu
siasm the time fixed November 151890
for the meeting of the constituent assem

Indications In Brazil
NEW YORK Dec 26Tho steamship
Sirius which left Rio de Janeiro Decem
ber 4 arrived here today She reports
several foreign warships among them
I the United States steamer Richmond had
arrived at that harbor and that quietness
reigned in the city but that a riot had
taken place in Rio de Janiero district al
though no particulars could be learned up
to the time of sailing Captain Fisher of
the Sirius was seen by a reporter and
said We were at Rio everything was
quiet and business was going on as usual
although the banks were a bit wary and
drafts for over one hundred pounds would
not be honored There was however an
under current of discontent manifested
and I am not surprised to hear of an out
break there since we left There is evi
dently a considerable number of the peo
ple of the city who desire to see the em
pire established The sentiment has
lot taken shape in any definite movement
but mutterings of dissatisfaction were
heard The truth was the banishment of
Dom Pedro and the proclamation of the
republic came with such suddenness that
the adherents of the empire had no time to
make any demonstration When we were
there looked for troubles not only in Rio
but throughout Brazil for some time to
come Those at the head of the new
novementhave not a pleasant prospect be
fore them by any means
W R Grace today received a cable
from Rio that exchange there is quoted
at 2M pence which is a fall of 3M pence
since Dom Pedro was deposed Rubber
has gone up 2 mills and 000 reis today
Exchange is at 94K per cent below par
Grace said he was not an alarmist but there
are indications of serious trouble brewing
He believed that Brazil contained
beleved Brzi more
corrupt officials than any country on the
face of the globe I the press had the
same liberty as in this country the
rascality would be exposed in a way that
would be surprising

Revision of the Tariff
WASHINGTON Dec 211The first of the
series of tariff hearings mapped out by the
House committee on ways and means was
held this morning Gentlemen interested
in metals ore and coal are being permitted
to give their views The committee en
deavored to draw from N M Moore and
Powell Stockhouse of Michigan informa
tion as to the amount of labor and capital
contained in a ton of iron ore The res
> onses however were unsatisfactorytbey
declaring their inability to give a correct
answer owing to the varied customs of
different miners
J J Dominies of New York urged
against reduction of the duty on iron ore
Galusha Growe of Pennsylvania advo
cated a reduction on coal but maintained
hat a proviso should he added declaring
hat the reduced duty should apply only to
he products of such foreign countries as
lid not urge an abolition of the tariff but
hat it should be fixed at a rate to cover
he difference in wages in the United
States and Canada
Charles F Mayer president of the Con
solidated Coal company of Maryland pro
tested against any reduction in the coal
duty He did not want to put the Amen
can laborer down on the same plane as the
British laborers A reduction of the tariff
would have that effect
At the evening session Oscar Reen
representing the Newark N J Smelting
works endeavored to impress upon the
committee the necessity of maintaining
the present law in relation to the importa
tion of lead ore when containing a val
uable proportion of precious metals
L E Holden of Cleveland Ohio took
the other view and contended that lead orer
even when it contains ore of the more
precious metals should pay its share of
the duty on imports
Hon H Townsend of Colorado pro
tested against the finding of the secretary
of the treasury as unfair to the miners and
mine owners of the west
Hon Mr Bartine of Nevada said the
people of his region irrespective of politics
or parties were high tariff men so far as
lead was concerned and he argued in sup
port of the resolution recently offered by
him in the House requesting the secretary
of the treasury to modify his lead ore
decision The rulings should bo rectified
without delay The resolutions offered
by him should be considered before a tariff
bill was presented because it was well
known that a bill gave rise to longwinded
debates and might precipitate a deadlock
upon the House He said he had consulted
with President Harrison on the subject
and that the President had fully sympath
ized with the people of the west but he did
not feel at libertjrto go behind the rulings
of his predecessor
