New York Quaok Dootors, A Citao In Rnnv I liferent IntrLnvt mi Hj Mmk iiitb Thai itrc living Taken With the View to Itelorm. New Yomc, Auk. 2. A caso is now ponding before a referee In this city which is of unusual interest, not only to the medical profession, but to the public ut large. It is n suit for damages against a man who claims to be a physician, instituted by an unfortunate who assorts that through the defendant's malpractlco ho lias been ruined for life. lie loys his damages at $10,000. A gentleman who has boon investigating this and other cases was horrified by a recital of the fearful results attending tlio troatment of various quacks. It is promised that tho present proceedings will do much to crndicato tho frightful ovih ns a determined tight is to bo made againBt tho men who prey upon the imiocenco of tho nfllictcd. Giovanni Do March!, tho plaintiff in tho present case, is an Italiun sculptor who earns a' gol salary in tho pursuit of his avocation. He is a man of about forty, and apparently intelligent. The defotidant is Elesio Marini, an Italian who keeps a drug store and praolices medicine. Lost October ho was ono of tho oloven who were prosecuted for practicing medicine without a license Tho action was taken by tho Medical Society for the County of New York under the act of May 29, 1880. to regulate the licensing of physicians and Burgeons, through the society's counsel, Mr. Chaunoy B. Ripley. Marini was tho only ono convicted. He was tried in tho court of special sessions, and fined ?50, which the puid. Since then ho has been practicing regularly, it is claimed, and it was sinco then that ho treated Do March!. Tho latter, upon being assured that he had been irreparably injured by tho treatment to which he had been subjected, commenced the suit tor damages thiough Mr. C. II. Bertram!, his counsel. The case was brought before the judge in the supremo court, who held Marini in bail and appointed Mr. John Burke refereo to take tho evidence and report. In the complaint, counsel for the plaintiff set up that Marini is not now and never was a physician. It is claimed that the diploma he holds and clalmB to havo received in Italy is not genuine, as he is not a gradnatc of any medical college. His conviction in the special sessions for practicing without a licenso is also cited. . In his answer Marini states that since his conviction ho has obtained a lie nse, and is consequently entitled to act as a physician. Ho admits that ho treated Do March!, but declares that ho did it Bkillfuily and pursued the sumo course as would any other reputable physician. The cae will come up before the reieree again this wetk. A number of prominent physi cians will bo called ns ctperts to testify regarding the treatment and tho plaintiffs presont condition. A brief lms born prepared in which is set forth all the de cisions of the Court of Appeals in similar from 1737 down to tho present time. Among the witnesses will lie Dr. Cnrlo Imperatorl, who treated Do Mnrehi after ho left Mnrini's hands. Ho said that there was something like thirty allcijed physicians in tho city who nro making large fortunes by maltreating poor people. Many of them are in tho Italian quarter, where they find plenty of victims. As an instance, ho called in a young man who was waiting for an interviow, and exhibited him as a horrible example. The sight was sickening iu tho extreme. This man, ho said, bad been treated by an individual who was 'ormerly a barber, but who now keeps two drug-stores and makes about S100 per day. Several other circumstances were given by Dr. Impcratori. One of these was an Italian woman, who. when suffering from peritonitis, had a large piece of ice and several leeches applied by one of the quacks. She died on May 2. These men, the doctor said, went about offering to cure the poor poople for a specified sum. In some cases they worked upon tho "No cure, no pay" basis in a manner eminently satisfactory to themselves Tho money would be deposited in the hands of a third party, who was to either hand it over to tho "doctor" or pay It bach-to tho patient. Tho "doctor" soldom evci got left. "In some instances," the narrator continued, these men employed broken-down regular physicians to sign certificates of death and do simular work when necessary.' Mr. Bortrand stated that specifications aro being drawn up which will bo placed boforo the Now York County Modical socioty, with a view of bringing about an investigation as to how these men obtained their license' - WIZARD DOCTORING. A Curloim Cane or Clenr Kcgr You dooUm. Ouni.i5TOX, W. Va., Aug. 2. A genuine case of yoodooism has just bocn developed in this oity by ono" of our physicians. The oase in question is one which has created much talk among medical circles, The voodoo doctor is Simeon Furgerson, an illiterate negro coal-minor, who rcsidos in Campbell crock mining regions. Tho part '.on t is Mrs. Eliza Williams, who lives just out of the eity limits, who has been sick, for some time. Furgerson, who happened to pass one day about woolc ago, heard of tho lady's sickness and went into the residenoe, whore he examined tho patient. He diagnosed tho case aud that devils had posstision of Mrs. Williams. lie further informod the patient that he was the only doctor who had the power to drive out bis satanio majesty's subjects, (lie prescribed for her poke-root, smart-grass and iron-weed, to which he added grasshoppers, flies and other insects. This bofiig mixed, it wns placed in a quaTt bottle, set in hot water, and steeped for some time. The quantity taken was a wineglassfull evory four hours. Several doses were taken of the obnoxious decoction. Furgerson also required that tobacco snuff be blown up the pationt's nostrils from a pipe. The woman became so much worse that a reputable doctor was sent for. Ho prescribed for her, after which her husband brought a quart bottlo of the stuff whloh Furgerson had compounded to tho city. It was left at a drug store for analysis, where it is now on exhibition. This is the first caso of the kind ever developed In this section, notwithstanding Furgerson sayo that he has about twenty cases whcroin he has cast out devils. Ho will bo investigated by the local board of hoalth. Furgerson'i diet for tho patient was maokeral, taken out of briuo, uuwashod and unsoaked. A VAST GRAVE-YARD. The EnrthqnnUe Horror Beyond II n. until lowcr to Ornnp. NAnrs, Aug. 2 No one now places tho loss of lifo much bolow 5,000. Ono caso has bcon roported of a wliolo family which were rescuod by the sappers and soldiers, after hnving been literally entombed for over hours. Their cries wero heard on Sunday morning and nearly a day and night of hard work was do voted to their rescue. Tliore havo been many Americans and English pcoplo visiting Ischin during tho lnst hours, some of them out of curiosity, of course, but many searching for bodies of relativos and friends. An American lady has bcon for many hours examining the faces of all the doad, looking for a missing aunt, whom sho has not been able to find, and who is probably buried undor some of tho debris. Tho ob-servers at Mount Vesuvius report that a volcano in an activo state of eruption is likely to break out at any time, in sympathy with tho trouble at Iscliia, and refute thoir own original explanation that the disaster wns caused by a cave, and 'not by an enrthquake. Londoh, Aug. 2. The Bishop of who was killed by tho earthquake there last Saturday night, was Monsignor Mazzolla, who was precouized in partibus for his devoted services on tho occasion of the carthquako at Ca.amicclola in 181. Ben un, Aug. 2. Private telegrams are received statiug that there was a slight enrthquake on the Island of Ischin on the 23d ot July, but that the fact was hushed up by the authorities for tear that if the report was sent abroad visitors would be deterred from visiting tho Island.

A lomanco bos just come to light hero which tho fashionable Beacon Hill peoplo of tho "Hub" will doubtless enjoy. Tlio city dotectives pounced upon two men whom thoy bolievcd to bo diamond robbers. They, howovcr, proved to be William A. Handley, brother-in-law of Dr. ltlodgett, and Ferdinand both understood to bo of wealthy Dob-ton families. Hundley, it is said, wanted to marry Miss Jessie Clurko, a Boston belle, but tho lady's paronts objected. Mr. then proposed an olopoment and carried Jesaio with him; but lie also, as alleged, carried away his mother's aud his sister's jewelry, and it was tlicso he was in tho act of pawning when tho detoctivos arrosted him. Dismctt was to havo been boat man at tho wedaing, which was to have taken place immediately. Jossie was in waiting at tlio lliohclicu Hotel for them, but mis startled by a detectivo officer, who, to her dismay, arrested and searched her also, taking her jewels and the weeping and frightened girl to the police station. But the climax waB reached when Dr. Blodgett, after explaining matters to the police, said ho belioved ho would now tako over his wife's jewels. Tlfe customs officials had seized these, and word vqb at once sent to the authorities at Ottawa in order to effect their release. The party, however, did not wait for them, as they icturncd to Boston by the first train. DARING STAGE ROBBERY. The Mont ruin Highwaymen Aunln UftUiie In Their Work. Helena, Mux., July 2. Tho stage from Helena to Deer Lodge was stopped by threo masked men on Dog Creek Hill, nineteen miles east of Deer Lodgo. Tho Robbers lay behind a log at the side of tho road. They had two six-shooters each and ono had a shot-gun and another a Winchester rifle. Thero wore nino passengers aboard, inculdiug two ladies. Tho latter wore not molested, but tho mon wero compelled to stand in line with heads up while the road agents took their money and valuables. Tho passengers' names wero Q. M. P. Penoser, II. Slsor, 13. G. Balloy, T. Barrett, T. Fcrroll, J. Colier, E. J. Farewell, Mrs, H. T. Lamoe and Mrs. It. B. Brady. No resistanco was made, although the passengers had loaded guns. About 5500 in monoy and jowelry was scoured from the passengers. The treasure box containing $240 was taken. The mail pouohes wero rifled, but the loss can not be estimated, as tho registered packages wero not local. Tho robbory took place five miles wost of tho scone of the attempted robbory a month ago, wore one of the road agents was shot. A sheriffs posse in pursuit discovered tho robboM' camp in the mountains, eight milos from the road, but it was desortcd, though the fire was still burning. A MONOPOLY'S RIM. The Now Fog tho Western Union Has to Meet. Tho Effect or tho Strike Vpon W. V. ItlvnlN Nome Facta mid FlRiirca Tho Chnuce tho Itnplrt Now Urn ThetJreat Strike Developing Home 1 u t or cm t tax Combination. Boton, Mass., Aug. 2. Tho new American, British and Continental Cable Company, or the A. B. and C, as it is called, in connection with tho Postal Telegraph Company in this country, is promising to bo ono of the most troublesome rivals tho Western Union hns ever had. Tho cable businoss, now controlled by the Wcstorn Luion Company, is done upon a capital stock of S'i5,500,000, represented by eight cables. There is tho Anglo-American Cable Company, having four cables and a capital stock of ?:5,000,000 ; tho Direct Cubic Company, witli ono cablo ami $0,500,000 capital stock, and the French Cable Company, with ono cablo and $10,-000,000 capitat "stock. Tho Western Union lias exclusive contracts for interchange of InislncfH with all tlicso companies, and in consideration therefor has guaranteed to the companies live per cent, for yeais. Four of tho cables are now of no service, two of them are In poor condition, und the great bulk of tho business is done on the remaining two, yet tho dividends must bo paid, accord ng to contract, upon all of them. Good business management of course, would require tho laying asido from the earnings on the cnblos a certain per cent iu a renewal fund, but figuros are not at hnud showing tho present extent of such a fund. Tho now cablo company has alroady contracted at 52,500,000 for the laying of one cablo immediately, and a second at tho sumo price, U to bo laid within eighteen months. Thocompamy then, with a capital of only 55,000,000, will be ublo to compete with companies aggregating a capital of SOo.OOO.OoO. But the odvnntngo from its lower capitalization, representing a much lens coit of construction, will not bo its, only advnntago in tho competition. Tho company uas secured control of patents for what aro known as "speeders," invonted sinco Gould made his contracts, by which sixty words a minuto can bo sent by the new cables, whereas only twenty words a minute can be sent by tho old cables. It is proposed to reduco the tariff lroin 50 cents to 25 cents a word, and to make it very uncomfortable, as n necessary result, for tue Western Union. In this connection it may be mentioned that tho Postal Telo-graph Company's linwnicn aro now looking ovor tlio route Kast by way of Boston, Port-hind nnd Bangor to tho Provinces, and the work of setting tho poles will bo begun this month. It is understood that negotiations are pending botween tho American ltapid Telegraph Company and tho Union Electric .Manufacturing Company for tho use of the June quadruplex aud duplox instruments. 1 the use of tho quadruplex eight can work on ono wiro at the same time, two sotiding and two rccoiving at each end. Tho Wcstorn Union has the exclusive uso of the Edison invoution, which, , however, was Improved consideiably by Mr. Jones when lie was iu the company's employ. Ho is now tho'chiof electrician of i tho Union Manufacturing Compuiy, and has invonted and perfected a quadruplex which is sn'd to work iicautifully. The Rapid ha wires to which the can bo at oueo applied, and by its uso thocntmuity for handling business would bo very greatly !norened immediately. There ! a general feeling in telegrnphio circles that the Ilapid'now has a great opportunity, aud that if it gives satisfaction thero is no reason why it should not hold permanently, at least, three-quarters of tho business it gets. WILD WITH JOY. Ireland Celebrating Carey's IHwth With l'roccHHloiih and Ronflrec. London, Aug. 2. O'Dounell denies that tie knew Carey before ho arrived at Cape Town. Ho denies that he was dogging him, and says that his determination to kill was only formed after tho Melroso Castle lett Cope Town. Then Carey by his conduct indicated hip identity and aotod in such a manner as to crcato within the prisoner an irresistible impulse to kill him. O'Dounell points t the fact that Mrs. O'Donnell accompanied him as a proof that his journoy was not ono of conspiracy. Tho prisoner, however, refuses to state what purpose ho had in carrying with him the infernal machine found in his luggage. Tho police olaim to have proof that O'Donnell drow tho executioner's lot in Dublin ; that he was posted in London by tho Invinclbles undor orders to follow Mrs. Carey whorover sho wont, until soraowhero he should with her ohildron meet the roan who, by her and their conduct, would bo indicated beyond all doubt as Carey, nnd to kill that man tho moment his tity was made out. Tho officers Bay that Mis. O'Donnell was taken along to assist her husband by ingratiating hersolf with Mrs. Carey and hor children. Liuerioic, Aug. 2. Enormous orowds have boon parading tho streets rojoiciug over O'Donnell's shooting of Carey. The feeling is intense, and the polico would havo interfered but for fear of exciting a riot, The orowd was boistorous and noisy without showing signs of ugliness. Tbe effigy of James Caroy.'the informer, was carried at tho head of tho procession, cuffed aud spat upon, amid the jeors of half tho oity's populaco, which lined the sidewalk. DunuN, Aug. 2. Tho city was alive with procossions and lit by bondfires over Carey's assassination. No loss than six fires wero lighted in tho street in front of Carey's house and two in tlio roar of tho building. His effigy, after having boon in every possiblo way as it was dragged through tho strode, was hanged in front of the dwelling in prosoncoof the cheering crowd. Somo of the bonfires dangerous to surrounding property and tho polico had to extinguish them, Thoy wero stonod by the mob, and soveral wero hurt beforo they chargod the orowd, which they finally did. The troops are under arms. Tho' polio oourts in the morning were orowded with prisoners, many of whom showed signs of rathor rough usage. Ninety-two of these prisoners were fined ten shillings each for kindling bonfires, nnd four others were sentenced to one month's imprisonment for assaults on the police. London, Aug. 2. James Carey was shot at four o'olock Sunday afternoon, The tcamcr Melrose, on which the shooting occurred, arrived at Port Elizabeth at two o'olook Monday afternoon. These facts seem to chow that O'Donnell was outside Colonial jurisdiction when he committed tho crime, and must bo tried in England. Tho Press Association reports O'Donnell, before embarking for Africa, boasted he had followed Mrs. Carey from Dublin. Port EuzAnETir, Aug. 1. At tho examination of O'Donnell for the murder of James Carey, tho oldest son of Carey deposed that his fathor and O'Donnell had bcon on friendly terms throughout tho voyago, and had often played cards. Tho caso was remanded to enablo the prisoner to call the r toward of the steamer as a witness. Mrs. Carey says thero was an Irishman named Kelly, from Wexford, on the steamer Kin-fauns Castlo. Her husband was suspicious of him. CURIOUS COINCIDENT. A. Romnuce From Every Day I.lfe'a Experience. Atlantio City, N. J., Aug. 2. A singular circumstance has just occurred here which Is in the nature of a romanoe of the most approvod pattern, it involving no less combination than tho meeting of threo persons who had boon intimately connected in their former livos, ending in tho marriage of two long-parted lovers. The heroine, Mary B. Donoghuc, ten years ago, when only 16 years of age, was tho belle of a Virginia village. While at tho White Sulpher Springs, five years ago, sho was persuaded by hor mother to marry a young Austrian named Frascati, whoso dobts and dissipations had driven him from homo to America. Two years ago hor only child died, and a diorce procure I her a release from tho cruelty of n brutal husband. Sinco then sho hud seen neither hor husband,, whom sho never lovod, nor tho lover who tied tho country on her Ill-fated raarriugo. Among tho throng on Sunday gazing out upon tho ocean from tho porch of the New Inlet House, by a strange irony, weie tho two men Frascati, the Austrian drunknrd, tho divorced husband, on ono side of his former wife; John Saunders, the lover who had grown sick with longing for a face now not twenty Teot away yet each unconscious of tho other's presence. Driven no doubt to despair by remorso and penury, Frascati wandered away along tho shore. When ho plunged in lie did not know whether ho could swim nut, or whothes ho would drown his sorrow onco for all nnd find a gravo beneath tho wnves. But a woman's startled shriek lang shrilly out over the evening air; his own wife had seen his wild 'cap, all gno ant that this wns tho man who had wrecked a young life. Her accents touched a chord no other voice had ever wakened iu Saunders' heart. He rushed townrd tho spot from which it seemed to come, and dragged Frascati dripping from tho water. A mutual and triangular recognition followed, and there, in tho presence of the man who had always loved her, Mary Donochito's divorced husband knelt and prayed for for. givencss. At tho quiet marriage which took place tho same evening in tho house of an Atlantic City clergyman, Saunders was joined for life to tho woman ho had always lovod. Frascati witnessed the ceremony. ARTHUR IN CHICAGO. I'reperatlonn mid Programme I'or the FrcMldeiit'n Visit. Chicago, Aug. 2. A peculiar interest attaches to President Arthur's visit to Chicago because it is the first timo ho has been in the city sinco ho was hero with Garfield and rocoived the nomination for Vice President from his party. The arrangements for tho reception are yet subject to many changes, but. the present plan is that the party shall bo mot at Grand Crossing by a special train of local celebrities and esoorted into the city. At the Fourth avenue depot the party will bo recolved by tho Union Veteran club and the First brigade Illinois National guards, and escorted ,by way of Clark stroot to the Grand Pacitio hotel. In tho evening an informal cillzens' rccoption will bo tondorcd him nt tho hotel' The plans for the President's entertainment have not boon dcvoloped. Some three months ago, when ho announood his intention of visiting the city, the Union Leaguo club invited him to bo its guest, and tho invitation wns accepted. A short time before tho date of his visit ho amended bis plans and postponed tho trip. When he announced his present visit the invitation was renewed, but owing to tho short time he will bo hero tho reception has been postponed until his roturu trip. A Drummer Killed In n Flro.

Nix Men Killed mid Several Hnrned to Death In the Wreck -A Horrible Nceue The Accident Nald to be Canned Ily the Company's JL'arel moiiy. Noutii Adams, Mass., Aug. 2. Two freight trn ns on the Troy & Boston road came in collision between Petersburg Junction and Pownal, Vt., Bovcrnl men being killed. Tho collision was caused by the neglect of E. W. Johnson, tho telegraph operator nt Petersburg Junction, to obey the order of tho dispatcher to stop ono train at his station. Ono train had cars and the The engine? were driven into each other nnd fifty cars derailed and piled on top of each other, while somo car fell into the Hoosac IUvor. The wreckage immediately took tiro. About five minutes after tho crash n passenger train with four cars, all filled, was duo, and a brakemau, with bunds, l'nco and head bleeding, went out ami flagged it. Tho trainmen and passengers on this train at once set about rescuing tho uii fen tun ate men under the ft eight, but it was so hot they could do but little Groans were heard from under tho wreck, but owing to tho fire the men could not be rescued, and were burned to death. Two fire engines nrrlved in the ofternoon, and tho flames wero extinguished Search was thon begun for t .e bodies. Under the ruins of the .engine of train No. (3 wero found the skull, ribs, and bones of the all that remained of tho body of Charlos Marden. Tho debris is not cleared away sufficiently to allow further search at pretout, hut from the indications nothing will bo found of the six men but thoir charred bones. Thero wero oloven men on the train. Mack Sutherland, cngincor of train No. 1, snid to his fireman : " I will jump iu a minuto; you go along." He was never seen again. His fireman, George Vance, escaped with a few slight bruisoj. Thomas Lune, brakeman of this train, was burned to death. Conductor Goorge W arner jumped and injured his knoe. On tho other train Engineer Charles War-dun, Conductor John Barrett, Brakeman Frank Embaux, and the operator, named Bruce, of the Troy & Grecatield Hailroad, who was riding on tho engine, wero killed. It is thought all but Madden were killed instantly. He lay undor tho engine and could bo plainly seen. Ho asked n farmer near by to get him out, nnd tlio farmer went for a bar, but when ho returned the fire was so hot and had spread so rapidly that he could not effect a rescue. A number of subsequent attempts were made to reach him, but" without avail. It will bo impossible to identify the the bodies and all the bones will probably be gathered up and interred together, with n union ncrvico. Operator Johnson, who is responsible for the accident, is seventcon years old, had been on duty ail night, and at '. o'clock a. m. had not been relieved, owing to tho tardiness of A. C.
