Strangers Have Appeared Avowing Their Intent ion to Get the Money Due Trouble Certain. Ashland, Ky , July 1. Iu Carter county there is intense excitement" because of the appearance ol strangers," who acknow ledge their mission to lii- to collect the famous railroad tax that lias been in dis pute for forty years. Thii ux grows out of the bond issu of $75,000 to the Elizabeth town and Lexington and Big Sandy Kailfoad froai Lexiugton to Catt lettsburg. Tlie company after securing the bonds abandoned the project, selling the bonds at a liberal discount to David Stinton, a iiiillIonaircat Cincinnati. Through a mistake TJf the county attorney in drawing j up the contract the road escaped the lia bility for const ruction and then- refusal to meet their agreement gave rise to the contest that has ever since been success fully maintained. All who ymed the bonds, save a single resident or Carter County, are dead and 2,5:i or I he new generation have organized to resist the collection Numerous attempts have railed and it is now legarded as worth your lire to at tempt collection. Two months ago a deputy collector, after making a levy upou the farmers' property , escaped being lynched by 500 people by slipping off in the night. The men are determined that no collection shall be made and openly announce it. If Peck and his deputies resort to imperative measures there may be bloody scenes. All that holds tlie matter from a crisis now is a doubt or the sincerity of the collector and his allies. YOUNG BAPTISTS TO MEET. Arrnmreiiieiits for the Mammoth LTn lon Uatherlnir In Baltimore.

IH PHONE 10 IE TRIED Present System Both Antiquated and Cumbersome. PRESIDENT KEELYN KNOWS Das Just Completed a Modern Plant For rhelnterlor Department State ments in a Local Pn per ltej;iirdlnjr "Underground System Bused on Ig norance or Intent ion to Mislead. The Bell telephones will be removed to-day from all the orfices of the Interior Depart ment and the Agricultural Department, and will be replaced by those of the Western Telephone Construction Company, whose president, Mr. J. "E. Keelyn, is now in the city to superintend the change. Mr. Keelyn said last night that he has been estimating the cost or establishing a new tulcphone exchange in this city for prominent business men here, and the plans would be considered during his present visit. His attention was called to statements recently published in a city paper to the effect that new construction was not feasible. Ho said that he had read the article in that paper, and also the edi torial yesterday in The Times, and ox Hressed hiinself in line with the position assumed in the latter. GROSS IGNORANCE. "Many or the statements," he said, "in tho local article arc not to be ex plained on any other grounds than gross ignorance. "The objections to new companies might seem to a layman to have some room Tor credit, but to one acquainted with tele phone work they are simply nonsense. The article mentions, for instance, the great expenseofan underground system, when, as j.i matter or Tact, such systems are being constantly put in iu different parts of the country. "It is simply a matter of telephone engineering. That the present 6 stem is much behind the age can be determined by an examination of the sjstem we have Just installed for the Interior Department, connecting with tho Pension Office, the Agricultural, and other departments. MISLEADING THE PUBLIC. "Tlie statement in tlie article with refer ence to the Berliner patent is founded either on ignorance or a clear attempt to mislead the public. "There is no question among patent at torneys that the Berliner patcut will be declared as or no effect in disturbing a superior type of telephone instruments, if a suit for infringment upon it is ever brought, which I very much doubt." Mr. Keelyn said that no doubt it was attempted to discredit the efrorts that are now made to cheapen telephone sen-ice in Washington. He believes Trom business relatioes with some of the proposed new exchanges that they are bona fide concerns and that the projectors are in earnest. BUSINESS TROUBLES. Wheeling, W. Ta, July l.-S.

SingSing, Julyl. Dr. Buchanan, the wife inu Here i id dead. All legal efrorts failed, and the 6?iitetice of the court was carried out in the electric chair this morning. The current was turned on at 11:22, and he died a minute later, The witnesses en teied at 1113, tlie current was turned on at 11:22, at 1,710 volts, for four seconds, then reduced to 400 volts, and left on for thirty seconds, when it was turned on to 1,740 volts again, and gradually reduced until it was turned ofr at fifty-eight seconds after it was first applied. Thirty-two seconds after the current was turned off Buchanan was examined by the physicians, who discovered a slight pulsa tion or the heart. The victim also gasped and the'doctors declared that lire was not extinct; tlie cur rent was again turned on full force of 1,740 volts, where it was held for twenty three seconds, when it was again turned off. Biu hanan died at 11:23. He entered the room with his eyes closed and did not open his eyes a tall. He walked along beside the attendant without assist ance to the chair. His leg was sllghtly scorched and smoked during the last few seconds or the execution. The body was perfectly motionless after the current was turned on. When he awoke this morning after a few hours yf troubled sleep he realized for the lirst time that the day of his doom had arrived. Several times in his re markable fight for life he had been as near the hour set for his execution as he was last night, but always some act of 'J executive clemency or some new legal maneuver interfered to grant him a new rcspj'e. Dr. Buchanan did not retire until 2 o'clock this morning, and then did not remove his clothes, but he apparently i cited somewhat better than the night before, and seemed rerreahed and more chcerlul than yesterday, when he awoke at C 30 this morning. At 7 30 ho called for a bowl of milk, which has usually constituted his breakfast. Ho saw no one but his guards until an hour later, when Warden Sage entered with the condemned man's spiritual adviser. The warden informed Buchanan of the tenor of the attorney general's dispatch and nutiCied him that, In accordance with the opinion of tlie law department of the State, it would be necessary to carry out the sen tence of the court. Buchanan had appar ently prepared lite mind Tor the news and expressed no surprise. Warden Sage told him ox the efforts that Mrs. Buchanan was making to secure a reprieve or commuta tion of tlie sentence from Gov. Morton, but expressed the opinion that the chances were slight for a Tavorable result of her entreaties. "No," said Buchanan, "there's not much chance for that." He was calm, m spite of his full appre ciation of the situation, but did not wm to wish to prolong the inif rview, and tht warden soon withdrew, leaving the con demned mau with his minister and the guards. New York, July 1 The body or Dr Buchanan was brought to this city from Sing Sing The lawyers who defended Buchanan were present at the undertaker's establishment on the arrival of tho body Mr Huhna, the undertaker, placed the body in a large casket, covered with black cloth and silver handles Alargecrowd was on hand and theunder taker allowed everybody, -who so desired, to pass through his establishment and view the remains At 10 o'clock Mrs Buchanan arrived. She supped through the crowd unobserved and passed Into the room. When she reached the side of the casket she leaned forward and in a most pitiful manner said: "Oh, Rob, dear Rob, speak to me. Rob, Rob, open your eyes, look at meEob." Leaning forward the poor woman kissed the face of her dead husbaud again and again, repeatedly calling upon him to speak to her Every moment she grew wilder and more hysterical until at last unable to con trol herself she almost shrieked in anguish, "Oh, Rob, I love you so. Speak to me, dear Rob." After some difficulty her friends suc ceeded in cettmg the unfortunate woman out of the room. She was taken to another room, where every efrort was made by her friends to soothe and quiet her. Arrangements have not yet been made for the funeral, but Mr. Gibbons said that the burial would probably be in Green wood. BAN. TUCKER'S MANY TITLES.
