Heroic Deed of An Old Tar He Knifes
the Monster Within Three Feet
of His Victim.
Nkw Youk, September 8. There were
ubout fifty strong aw.iunieri disporting
lu the sparkling waters ol the Nurrows
yehterday off the old Firry dock atStatea
U und. Tlie young fellows were having
a perfectly elegant time and the trailing
Kpeetators envied them lor a while. It
was near noon und the water had a crbp,
cool luok. Suddenly a change came over
the sceue. The outermost group of live
sturdy swiintners ceased their frisky
antics and, turning toward snore,
scattered and were seen to make
the tno.'t desperate efforts to reach laud.
An o.d diver, Johu Taylor, who has been
lu the setvice of the Coast Wrecking
Company for years, stood on the dock at
the time and the puz.led spectators asked
111 tn whit was the came of the commo
tion among the far-off group of swimmers
who were niakiug mch desperate efforts
to get back to the shore, lie shaded his
eyes, uud after looking out over the
g listening water with an earnest gaze for
a moment, replied :
"What?" cried the excited crowd
"There's a shark after those boys,"
taid he, "sure; I can see him."
"Where, where?" cried twenty voices.
"Look there! Look there! Look close,
twenty feet behind the last swimmer,
ami you'll see his black tin sticking up."
The crowJ t-tiained their eyes atid in a
moment Droke out lu a chorus of horror:
"1 see him; there he Is." Then the
crowd yelled "sharks" and all the swim
mers tear beuati to strike out for
laud aud came cllmbiug up the
dock in haste. The five swimmers
who were hiving the race with the man
eater meantime came ahead with desper
ate strokes. They were so near that
their faces could be seeu aud the excited
crowd could mase out the looks of terror
thereon. When tweuty leet away thd
shark was seen to turn aud his white
bel.y glistened lu the sun. The last
swimmer, an expert ana brave one, how
ever, dived at the proper time aud lu a
few moments his vigorous strokes
brought him to shoal water where he was
sale. The pursuit was coutiuued, how
ever, until the
had fairly scraped against the sandy bot
tom. When the specta ors were gasping
a sitih of relief, however, another cry of
horror broke out from the diver, lie
pointed far out over the water ou the
other side of the pier. There was an
other swimmer frisking about alone on
the water, unconscious of what bad been
going on or what a terrible foe had
been encountered so near. This
was a young man named
Thos. Koh er. The crowd set up a yell
at lii in and beckoned him back with fran
tic gesture. lie did not understand at
first and paddled slowly In. The crowd
kept up their cries, and finally he, al
though not understanding the meaulug of
the commotion, started back with all his
energy, evident y satisfied that there was
some good cause for this solicitude on
his behalf. Tho shark meantime had
been scouting the other side of the pier,
where he had lost als game by so close a
shave, and seemed reluctant to leave so
rich a ground.
"The shark will get on to him sure,"
said the diver to the excited spectators.
"He's only got to sweep arouud tho head
of the pier to head him off as he comes
In on the other side." The situation was
now thrilling. The swimmer at last had
got at the true situation. He knew there
were sharks in the water, and, as he
swam, it was noticed that he looked ap
prehensively at times, from side to side,
to learn from which quarter he might ex
pect the attack. His face wore an ex
pression of desperation. A shriek went
tip from him us he drew near and saw
the shark rolling arouud on the opposite
side of the pier to that which he was ap
proaching. He swam for dear life, and
the crowd encouraged him with its fran
tic cries and advice.
"It sees him!" yelled the spectators.
"Sure enough, the monster turned
about and pointed its nose toward the
incomiug swimmer. It was apparent
that the young man could not reach tho
pier in time. The shark glided along
rapidly and the swimmer, too, was mak
ing excellent time. The spectators could
calculate the converging lines, In which
tho two were traveling, would meet
within a few feet of the dock, aud there
doubtless would bo a horrible sceno.
The diver seemed to take sudden reso
lution when It became apparent that
there was no escape for Kohler. He
took off his coat, hat and shoes and bor
LONG SHEATH KNIFK
from a sailor. He theu ran out to the
extreme end of the pter, where tho shark,
It was seen, would pass close by on Its
course to Its victim, who was now near
that point. As It came nearer tho crowd
saw that It was a monster mo e than
eight feet long, and one of the shovel
nose species. Taylor Is a large man aud
an expert swimmer. As the shark swept
up aud was rushing direct for Kohler,
turning on his back at the same time,
Taylor sprang from the pier with
the sheath-knlfe In his right hand.
Ho jumped eight feet before1
striking the water, and landed about
one foot on the opposite side of the
shark. The whole weight of Tavlor's
body was thrown on tho knife, which ho
plunged, as he struck the water, Into tho
stomach of the shark. Instantly Taylor's
arm, tbo water aud the shark were al
most hidden la blood. The shark made
a terrible plunge and rolled over ou Its
stomach. The shark was at this moment
within three feet of the young man,
whom tbo crowd expected to see caught.
It then turned and disappeared In deep
water. Taylor swam ashore without the
"I left it sticking In the cuss," he said.
"The carcass will be found floating some
where In a couple of days. I have seen
the natives In Florida and Bermuda do
that. It is a com mo a trick there. When
a shark tarns on Its back, which It has to
do to blto anything, it can not turn its
coarse eatH bccaowetlic-f i
jumps behind the head and doesn't get j
struck by the tall. I cut a gash In that
follow about one foot long and six Inches

D. Hale was a well educated and culti
vated negro, who served for a time on
tho police force ol this city, and after,
ward la the custom-house. He was a
man of family, of good character, a
Christian Church member and well es
teemed. He had a good wife and two
sons. For the last few months be has
beou Billeted with sickness which bo felt
to be Incurable, aud thinking ho was be
coming a burden to his family, last night
be posted himself at the side of the track
of the Illinois Central ltoad, beyond tho
statlou, just as au txcurslou train drew
out of the station and as soon as the engine
bad passed Hale got do wn on hU knees aud
laid his neck upou the rail. The car
wheels passed over and lu an Instant he
was decapitated. HU head rolled be
tween the rails and the trunk fell baok
into the ditch. The conductor found ou
bis person a note saying: "This U no
accident; please do not stop the men
from their work if it can be helped."
The considerate sulcldo knew it was the
custom of the police to arrest euip oyes
of railroad trains la cases whore persons
are run over, aud to hold them until the
court relieves them of responsibility, a
hardship which he sought to avoid for
them. It was found later that Hale had

A Bad T.ma to Strike.
Akron, 0., September 8. Tho pottery
makers have decided to quit work, with
the understanding that a general strike
will be established, tho owners of tho
potteries having determined that all
wares hereafter shall be made full size.
Crocks and jugs have heretofore not beeu
made so, which has caused dissatisfac
tion among consumers and the manufac
turers have served notices that all wares
must be made full size. The potters
then demanded au Increase in price,
which increase has beeu refused. The
strike will throw several hundred men out
of employment, as It will necessarily take
lu all kiln men, who will have nothing to
do if no ware Is made. Avery large
amount of ware is on baud.

.Ikkferson City, Mo., September 8.
The morutug trains brought quite a batch
of delegates to the Kejjtiblleau Conven
tion from the western part of the State.
The tlrst inau to show himself was Hon.
James T. Beach, of St. Joseph, who will
look after the interests of Hou. Nicholas
M. Ford lu the Convention. Not enough
delegates are hero yet to clearly detlue
the policy to be pursued, but, taking the
present as an Indication, It may be briefly
summed up as follows:
T ill! CUIKF OIUKCT
of the Couvcntlou will be to devise some
means to overthrow the preseut Demo
cratic dynasty, aud to accomplish this a
fusion will have to be foimed. Tho fig
ures upou which tho Republicans rely
are takeu from the vote of 1880, which
shows the vote between tho various par
ties to be: Republican. 153.C00; Green
back, 30,100; total, PJO.OOO. The Demo
cratlc vote for the same year was 207,000,
which leaves a majority of about 17,000
in lavor of the Democrats. The lucrease
In the Republican vote is estimated at
15,300, and tho Greenback at 7, '.'00,
which, added to the vote of 1880, will
give the Republicans a majority in the
Statu of 4,'JOO. lu additlou to this there
AN HUSH VOTK
of 20,000 which the Republicans expect
to secure. It Is not expected that Mar
maduke will receive a larger vote than
Governor Crittenden, aud hence with a
combination of all the elements aud tho
increase claimed, tho opposition vote
would be over 21,000 lu excess of the
Democratic vote. In order to capture
this vote, according to tho plan now pro
posed, tho Convention will indorse the
candidacy of Hon. Nicholas M. Ford lor
Governor, and adjouru without nominat
ing tho remainder of the Stato ticket,
which will be referred to a committee
and the men be selected from the various
parts of the Stato as will best subcrve
the Interests of the opposition.
THE ELECTORAL TICKET
will be divided, eight golugto Bialne and
eight to Butler, aud, as Is now the gen
eral prevailing opiulon, everything wilt
be conducted with tho sole purpose lu
view of running a ticket that will unite
tho discordant element who favor au
overthrow of the Democratic party. The
prohibition vote, should Brooks continue
lu tbe4ace, It Is claimed, will Injure tho
Democrats two to one worse thau tho
ST. LOLLS I'EI.KliA TES
aro expected in this evening, and tho pro
gramme may be materially changed, but
this Is hardly considered possible A
great many Federal oillco-holders are
known to bo opposed to a fusion, but
there will hardly be enough of them here
to raise a respectable kick. Tho fusion
lsts are confldeut that they can carry
everything with a whoop, and ridicule
the idea of anything else coining to pass.
A Bitter Fight in Colorado.
Denver, Col., September 8. The Re
publican Stato Convention which meets
Wednesday at Colorado Springs, will
probably be the most momcutous In the
history of the parly In this State. There
are four Guberuatorlal candidates in the
field: Jas. Moynahan, present Senator
from Park County, Lieutenant-Governor
Meyer, ex-Governor Tabor and Benjamin
H. Eaton, of Greeley. This, with the
fact that tho next Legislature elects a
successor to Senator Hill, made tho con
test lu tho primaries aud county conven
tions exceedingly bitter.
Arapahoe aud El Paso Counties have
contesting delegates. The latter county
aud Oak County held conventions on
Saturday, which were characterized by
turbulence. Opinions aro freely ex
pressed that the State Convention will
split and place two Republican State
tickets In the field. National politics are
utterly Ignored, aud many Republicans
fear that disseusious within the party
will result in electing a Democratic Leg
islature and Democratic successors to
Hill and Belfo.rd, even If tbo Democrats
do not carry tho State lor Cleveland.
Governor Cleveland at Elmira.
Ei.mira, N. Y., September 8. Gov
ernor Cleveland arrived over the Erie
Railroad this morning and was met at the
depot by a delegation of prominent Dem
ocrats, headed by Lieutenant-Governor
Hill aud Hon. M. II. Arnot. The Gov

tary and Adjutaut-Gcneral Farusworth.
The Cleveland battery of Ibis city tired a

Portland, Mk., September 8. There

Horrible Death of a Ones Prosperous
New York Farmer.
Cooperstown, N. Y., September 8.
Thos. Baird, an old farmer residing
about eight miles south of this village,
committed suicide by drowning himself
in tho Cherry Valley Creek yesterday.
Balrd, who in early life, was a successful
farmer and a respcctablo citizen of the
towu of Mtlford, Otsego County, had ot
recent years expericnceuJinaucial embar
rassment, which, with his iutemperato
habits, has reduced mm to poverty. But
a short time since tho farm upou which
he has resided for many years was sold
under a mortgage foreclosure and the old
man was lclt homeless. He continued
the habit which has caused him so much
misery aud fostered a feeling ot jealousy
toward tho man who bad succeeded him
as owner of the farm. Early yesterday
be took the poison and '
KAN IN TIIK IIOUSK,
informing the family he would barn the
buildings on the old farm and then drown
himself. He then left the bouse. The
family paid no attention to what he said,
as ho had previously made similar threats,
but finally thought It better to fol
low him. Upou reaching the build
ings, which are located on the bank
of the Susquehanna, they found then In
flames, and Balrd bad tied to the river.
By great efforts the neighbors succeeded
in saving the house, but the haras and
outbulldlogs were destroyed. Search
was Immediately made for Balrd, and
during the afternoon It was ascertained
that he had folly rarrled Into Hecutloa
the threats he uttered la ft morning.
