A BITTER HATRED,
Carey's Death Due to Lord Cavendish's
What nn Irish Nationalist Says of" the
Ileceut South African Tragedy
u Lord IlnrtiiiKfou Accunml of Hold-int:
it .Malignant Spirit of Itevcime
Ho Iletrays Carey's Whereabouts
to Those ScoliiiiK His l,ltc.
New Youk, Aug. 2,1. Cantata P. J.
Colcmnn, of this city, who one of the
principles in the plot to blow up the
Mansion House in London, and who
escaped to this country while a heavy reward
was pending for his capture, has received
a letter from a member of the Executive
Committee of the Irish .Revolutionary
Brotherhood in England, which
says that it was Lord Harrington, the
brother of the murdered Lord Frederick
Cavendish, who imparted to the Irish
Nationalists the fact that Carey, the informer,
would sail on the Kilfaun Cattle.
The following is an extract from the
Lord Harrington has shown, and will
continue to show himself the implacable
hater of all who were concerned in hi?
brother's death. His demeanor is in striking
contrast to the sublime' philosophy of
the widow of Lord Cavendish. " If my
husband's death will conduce to Ireland's
good, I have nothing to regret," she has
said. But Harrington is the very apotheosis
of revenge. Ho was determined on bringing
his brother's alleged murderers to
trial; and when Kelley, Brady
satisfied British law by the expiation
of their lives on the scaflbld, Hartington,
with fiendish delight, gloated over their
portraits. He .gnashed his teeth when
some of the men exeaped the digrace of
the hangman's rope, onlv to undergo the
misery of penal servitude. But Hartington
was not satisfied ; his cup of revenge
was not yet full, and he determined, that
if possible, the informers, Carey, Smith.
Hanlon and Kavanaugh, whom ho deemed
equally guilty with the convicted men ol
Ins brother's death, should also die.
It was Hartington who gave us the information
of Carey's release from
of his fugitive trip to England
and the fact that he would sail on the
Castle for Cape Town. "What an
anomaly and what a parody on justice
was this Lord Hartington asked us to
kill the man whom the British Government
had saved, to kill the man who
abovo all others was primarily responsi
ble lor the tragic end of Lord Lavcmlisli
and Under Secretary Burke. It was
Lord Hartington, too, who gave the
of the sailing of Hanlon, Kavanaugh
and Smith, ami it was tlirjngh hh
instrumentuJity that those informers wen
not allowed to land in Australia. In
fact, the noble lnrd will carry hisreveng
to its legitimate ending.and do all in hi
titled power to save the lifo and tha libei

Pirrsnimci, Aug. 21. Hundreds of
within the past four days have visited
the houe of Mrs. John Snii'th, on MeLiuu
avenue, ottractod bv stories of witchcraft
in connection with the death of a number
ofi her children. Mrs. Smith, a woman of
fair intelligence, wus s-.-en, and tells the
foil lowing remarkable storv. which is
voueiieu lor liy her neighbors:
"I have been married for nineteen
years, jnd in that time have become the
mother of twenty children. Of the twenty
only three are now living, the births and
deaths having averaged one a year. The
hist death occurred a few weeks ago, the
child being an infant. A week or so ago
a neighbor, Mr. Cafl'rcy, who had been
sick for some time, found a curious formation
of flowers, roses and crosses in the
pillow of his bed, made of feathers. After
finding them he became better. I
came home and looked through mv pillows
and feather beds. My. husband had
been ailing for some time, and in his
pillow I found an alligator woven out pf
feathers. It was about fifteen inches
long and two inches wide, anil
the feathers were so tightly woven
that I could hardly pull them
out. I did not know what to make of it.
and asked some of tho neighbors. They
said it was the work of a witch. I kep'
the curious jiec of feather work for a day
or two, until I becaruo annoyed by tin
.hundreds of people who called to. see it
Somo wanted to buy it. I burned the alii

whether to account for the death of in
seventeen children through this evil
or not, but I think there is something
The superstitious are all tigog over this
development. Thre are not less than
three witch doctors in this city who practice
strange mummeries, and they have
a largo practice. Strange to say 'half a
dozen similar cases havo occurred in the
last six months, ono case resulting in a
suit in court. Tho story of tho Smith woman
regarding her numerous and fated
progeny is as much a novelty as the witchcraft
story she telle. Her husband is em
ployed at Oliver's wire mill.
TWO BOY MURDERERS.
Thoy Cut A Mun'a Tlirout and Sleaj
Evansville, Ind., Aug. 21. Last Friday
morning a man named James Van
dcrver, living in Kentucky, opposite Mi.
Vernon, twenty milea from here, ciftue
across tUo rivor to spend tho day. He exhibited
considerable money. On Saturday
his wife camo over in search of him, and
it was supposed he was drowned or home.
Tho mystery has boen solved bv finding
his body in tho river, with his throat cut
from car to ear and one eye gouged out.
Officers set to work, and were soon
put on the track" of tho fiends
who committed the deed, by a young
woman, who was with the victim, in com-
pany with Seach Snider, John Anderson
and Harry Campbell. All three of the
men were arrested. Anderson and Snider,
terror stricken, endeavored to fix the guilt J
upon one another. It is believed that the
man Campbell had nothing to do with the -crime,
which was really committed by
Anderson and Snider. They had seen
Vanderver wif!i money, and, resolved to ,
get it, they followed him tinjthe river
a quarter of a mile above town, 1
where they knocked him down
with a club, then cut his throat, I
and threw the bodv in the river, after rill- '
ing his pockets. They got, however, but
aboutSlS, 9 apiece for a most dastardly '
murder. Both murderers are about
teen years old, awl natives of tho village.
Both are drunken worthless vagabond,
though of very wortTiy parentage. The
excitement was very intense in that little i
town, and it is feared that the citizens
will do something they Jiave done three I
times within the past three years string '
the wretches up at one. '

Cedar IUriDs, Iowa, Aug. 21. A
Bohemian woman named Kotopsy was arrested
and her house searched for stolen
property. Fully $2,000 worth was fouudi besides

She had many of the goods boxed ready

ln the lino of ladies wearing apparel,
among which were many handsomo
shawls, dolmans, silk dresses, etc., seven
watches and a largo amount ol silverware.
From tho names on photographs in her

some of the property came from Chicago,
Racine and Milwaukee. She is 40 years

A bloody club and several ghastly pools of

Nothing was found. about the remains to

no question at all as to how the fire

son of Cass Berry, who attended the school.
The boy was point h1 out to her. Sho told
him to go away with her. The boy refused
to accompany her and endeavored
to escape from her by running into the
school house, it being the recess, hour.
The woman thereupon called the negro,

screaming to the buggy. The woman
hurriedly joined them and they drove ofl

of the Erie train east. The woman applied
to Chief of Police Branfard for protection,
telling him that parties were in

her child from her.
The hoy made no complaint to the officer.
The officer escorted the woman and
the child to the train just as the grandfather
arrived at tho depot. The negro
had disappeared. The woman took the
boy in one of the closets in a car and
locked the door. The boy's grandfather
and his friends made fruitless eflbrts to

refused to interfere unless a proper warrant
for the woman's arrest was produced.
The train started, and old Mr. Berry went
with It as far as Allegheny, begging for the

in the closet.
