Loxnox, Oct. 4. O'Donnell, the slayer
of Carey, is said to have made u statement
emphatically denying that ho was sen to
murder Caicy. Ho says he and Carey
were Bitting together in tho cabin, and
Carey began to fasten a quarrel upon him,
when OfDonnell -remarked about tho
rumor that Tower (by which name Carey
shipped) was Carey, whereupon Carey and
lie started up, each with a pistol drawn.
O'Donnell gripped Carey's collar with his
left liAnd, but being paralyzed, lost hLs
grin, Carey then crushed him dowu
against tho end of the table, putting Jus
pistol in O'Donncll's face. O'Donnell
grabbed tlio pistol and Hied his own,
Carey's weapon falling on the floor, six
feet away. Carey ran partly btooped to
pick it up, when O'Donnell fired again,
not deliberately, but to save his life. According
to O'Donncll's statement tho story
of Carey's son, that ho took his fathers
pistol from his bag after the shooting, is
untrue. He took it oil tho iloor.
Sullivan, counsel for O'Donnell. irave
the following summary of O'Donncll's defense:
Till the day after ho reached Cape
Town O'Donnell says ho never for a moment
suspected Power to bo Caroy. Seeing
him to bo fan Irishman like himself
he chummed with him and was kind to
the children because titer seemed to bo in
misery. Ho was further attracted to
Carey by his occasional moody, mysterious
manner, and thought he was possibly a
political outcast escaping. The day alter
they left the Cane it ?was rumored that
Carey was aboard. O'Donnell ahs overcome
by the idea that he had been giving
bis hand to and chumming with such a
villain, and he lay awake all night
moaning and groaning at the thought, unable
to believe or disbelieve. He hud
hud, as the crown wituess, Ureenbough,
not forthcoming here, testified ut the
Cape, plenty of opportunities
for throwing Carey overboard
on the way out, had ho suspected his
identity. In order to draw Carey out, and
contrary to his usual abstemious habits, he
drank rather freely the nerxt morning
(Sunday) with Carey. Tho informer, suspecting
something, changed his manner to
0'Donnoll,und on going into the saloon for
beer said : "What have you done with
your pistol, O'Donnell It made me nervous
when you hied at those Hying iish."
O'Donnell replied, lying: "I sold it. Hut
why are you afraid Only a man with
fomctliin on his conscience would be
afraid ot that," or wouls to that eiloot.
Meauwhilo Mrs. Carey, not to be
drugged into tho row, had left them.
Caiey took a hectoring tone, and as some
men, who had been previously sitting,
sprang to their feet, he said, "O'Donnell,
you are both ready to go oil' at half cock,"
and giappled O'Donnell, who took Carey'
collar by bin left and paralyzed hand
Carey and he then each put their hands in
their joekeb and drew out their pistol.
"I came from a part of Americ:
wheie people don't wait to inquire into a
man's intentions when his pistol isagainM
your forehead," I hitid, lolates O'Donnell
"and 1 died with my light hand. Carey V
revolver went oil and dropped on flu
iloor. Its owner daggered forward, stoop
ing pick up his weapon. Seeing this I file
again. Tom Carey then nicked up hi
father's pistol." Sullivan is hopeful o
convicting Tom Carey of perjury on th
point and in regard to his utterance U
O'Donnell after tho shooting,
New Yoitic, Oct. 4. General Roger A
Pryor has sailed for Knglaud to beconu
one the couiibcl for O'Donnell. Ho think
it will require stiongcr evidence than ux
ye been given to secure a conviction, it
there is a fair trial.

KILLING THE OLD MAN
A Woman Gasha IKer IIubuud'
Tltront lu a Drunken Quarrel.
Nw York, Oct 4. Inhabitants
in the tenements on Lewis street,
between ast Houston and Stanton, were
Btamlod by cries of "Murder! Murder!
Bbe'a killed mcl An instant later a
man in his stockin&fcct rushed out of No.
89 Lewis.strect mth blood streaming from
wounds in his and head, lie fell
to the ground from loss of blood and was
then conveyed to Bellevtw Hospital. Ho
was Christopher Farley, an ice-wagon
driver, residing with his vife and two
children on the top floor of 89 Lewis
btreeU The police entered and found
Mrs. Farley washing up the pools of blood
upon the iloor.
"I guess that'll fix him," she said. "Wo
only had a little quarrel, and he stuck a
kxzife in his throat,'' she said to tho officers.
It was learned, however, that the couple
had been drinking and quarrelling. Mrs,
Farley then used a dislipan to punctuate
her remarks. Then they clutched each
other and Mrs. F, siezed a table-knife.
Mr. and Sirs. Button, neighbors, rushed
in between them, but the knife had done
its work, mid Mr. Farley rushed from the
room with a deep gash in his throat and
gtab and other wounds over tho face and
body. The wife then coolly threw down
the knife and began to clean the iloor.
Farley's throat is gashed near tho jugular
vein, and it is feared that he can not survive.
The wife was arrested and held on
a chargo of felonious assault ut the
Eleventh Precinct Station-house. She lay
therein a drunken btupor moaning out:
"He killed himself. He ki(lcd himself."
The two little children sat in tho middle
of tho floor crying as if their hearts
would break. The little girl sobbed out,
"Mamma and papa fit ami mamma killed
papa." People residing in tho house say
that the couple became constantly involved
in quarrels, but the wife generally
came oil victorious. The couple have
been married about one year. He is the
stepfather of her children.

F. Chafl'ee is another name of note,

Final Settlement or tho UucHtlon of
Oct. 4. It August
last Dr. Inglebyjonoof the life trustees
of the birthplace of Shakespears, and
author of "Shakespeare's Horn, proposed
that the remains of Shokespea're should
bo exhumed in order to compare tho
poet's skull with tho monument bust in
the church, us well as to set at rebt the
question of the correctness of many conflicting
portraits of tho poet in existence.
The proposition received tho indorsement
of llov. G. Arbuthnot, vicar of this .place.
Upon reference to the terms of sepulture,
however, it was ascertained that the remains
could not he exhumed or disturbed
without consent of the mayor and officers
of tho city corporation. The mayor re-I
used assent, and the mutter has now been
1. itally settled by the city council, which
pu ;sed a resolution condemning any distal
bunco of Shakespeare's grave.

was hanged in the yard of the county
jail. The execution was conducted quietly
and was witnessed by 200 persons. Tho
doomed man retired early and slept all
ni ght. At 5fo'clock in tho "morning
he arose, and after making a
careful toilet partook of a 'hearty
breakfast He was visited later by two
Sisters of Mercy and his spiritual adviser,
Father Ward. Kouo of liis relatives put
in an appearance. At 11 o'clock ho left
his cell lor tho scaffold attended by Father
Ward and tho Sheriff. He walked
erect and ascended the bcaffold with a
firm step. When asked if ho had anything
to say he replied: "No." Tho cap
was then placed over his head and his
hands tied. At 11-.05 the drop was bprung
and in the fall his neck was broken. In
eight minutes ho was pronounced dead.
The crime for which ho suffered the
highest penalty of tho'law was uxorcido.
On tho evening of Juno 9. 18S2, ho sent
his little boy out of the house on some
preteuso, and when the little fellow returned
he found his mother lying on the
Iloor with her skull crushed in and a
bloody ax on the floor beside her. His
father had iled, but was arrested the same
night When the trial came up it was
clearly shown that he had committed tho
deed, and ho was accordingly convicted.
As the last hours of McStecn's life
passed he seemed to he more composed and
more ready to meet his fate bravely and
resignedly. Father Ward, as ho emerged
from the doomed man's cell, said: "I
never saw a man who seemed to possess so
kind a nature, nor a man who could be
further from doing any one ill. lie loves
children, aud has a refinement of nature
that very few illiterate men like himself
possess. I think," said Father Ward,
"that he will die as ho now is and has
been, bravely, and without saying a word.
He has nothing to say to the public, nor
do I yet know of any statement that he
will make. He has refused to have his
picture taken," said tho leverend gentleman,
"on very good grounds, 1 think. lie
objects to having his picture hanging on
the walls of the jail office and have people
come there and say in the presence of tho
public, 'there is the picture of a murderer.'
Besides, it is his desire to pass from
tho recollection of the people as boon as
possible after the execution.
A Case of Criminal Itrutality to a
Xiagaka Falls, Opt. 4. There has
been considerable excitement here about
the sending of an old horse over the Niagara
Fulls. The animal was probably
forty years old, and had been used in the
service of tho Cataract House for at leas
twenty years. One night this week D. K.
Jerrauld, ono of tho proprietors
of the hotel, Pat McCoy, and two
others, drove the horse to the river
midway between Uoat island Bridge mid
the lower entrance to Prospect House A
piece of railing was knocked oJ and an
effort mado to induce the animal to enter
the water. The old horse lay down aud
could not bo induced to get up. Ho was
finally pushed off the bank into the water,
eight feet below. Tho water was threo
feet deep and the current very slow. The
brute btood for an hour under a pelting of
stones. Ho grew weak, and was
slowly carried toward the cataract
At Proiect Park he regained
his feet, and with a sudden display
of energy gained tho bank. Again he was
pushed into the stream. A le was broken
aud he was scratched and bruised, a little
trail of blood marking the place where he
btood in the park. A policeman was notified,
aud several bullets were fired into
the horse. After having been in the water
nearly five hours the animal gave up the
struggle and was carried over tho falls.
The case was brought to the attention of
the Buffalo Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals, aud Officer Lolmein
arrested tho four men for cruelty to animals.
They were taken before Justice
Clark and demanded a jury trial. The
jury found a verdict of "Not guilty," on
the ground, us one of" the jury expressed
it, "that tho cruelty was not premeditated."
The case may be taken before the
grand jury at Lockport

New York, Oct. 4. The Herald an- ,
nounces that as soon as possible the Herald
would hare its own news stands in different
parts of tho city, at which tho Herald
and other cirr papers would be sold at
the price them, and not at
the price which the retail newsdealers
might consider proper. An advertisement
for 500 men and women to sell tho Herald
appealed in the same Xssue.According to tho
manager of tho business department more
than 400 persons made application, most
of them available candidates for the positions
offered. Carpenters are now making
strands. It is the expectation to have the
stands opened for business Mondav morning.

CitARKsnuna, W. Vn.f Oct. 4. The mysterious
mail robberies and other daring
depredations, which for tho last year have
been terrorizing tho neighborhood of
this State, have ocen explained by
the confession of the ringleader of tho
gang. An order known as tho Red
Men, whoso ostensible object was to promote
law and order did tho deeds.
Several of tho members were quite prominent
citizens, including among them Noah
Kittles who for vears bore an excellent
reputation and who was the leader of tho
gang. Several members were arrested and
liavo been on trial, Kittles among others.
Wednesday night Kittles made a clean
breast of the whole affair, giving tho
names of all the members of tho gang.
Great excitement prevails and there will

Sleeting or tlio Urcat St. I.ouN
St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 4. The free trade
conference concluded its labors with a
long debate between some members who
insisted on absolute free trude and others
who favored an attempt to eliminate protection
as a first step. Tho latter opinion
prevailed. An address to the people of
the country was adopted, declaring that
protection was a ruiuous measure, and
that all possible means should be taken to
abolish it immediately. Most of the gentlemen
declared they were straight out
free traders in theory, but thought it wise
to strike at protection. As a preliminary
step a literary bureau was agreed upon to
furnish free trade matter to tho press generally,
especially to tho country papers.
