A Ntraass Wllsl Basist CklHr.
Harrlsburg, Pa., Doc.10. For near
lyayear past a strange wild animal
has roamed the Cromwal hills in Lob-
anon and Lancaster counties. It was
often seen by hunters, but they never
attempted to shoot It. They bad no
particular reason for not trying to kill
the queer thing, but for some un
known causo it was uover molested.
II was decidedly wild and fear Ail of
man and beast. Whenover any per
son got within shooting distance of it
the animal would b6uud away with
great Bwlftness. Some oalled it a
sheep, while a few of the superstl-
tlously inclined contended it was an
The farmers in that neighborhood
set traps to catch It; but were unsuc
cessful, as It seemed to scout the dan
ger lurking in traps. However,
Farmer Hammer and his wife, who
live in Elisabeth township, Lancas
ter couuty, have outwitted the
strange beast. Since winter set in
Mrs. Hammer has been putting a
quantity of oats, apples and corn at a
certain plaoo, whloh were eaten up
every time. From a window in the
house the farmer and his wife saw the
animal feeding. They would often
walk towards the beast, but could
never get close enough to tell what it
looked like. Mr. Hammer, after days
of watohing, at last conceived a plan
by whloh to capture It and he has
been successful. , He is 75 years old.
On last Sunday morning he laid
down whero tho animal had been
feeding and his wife covered him
with leaves. This done she put a
quantity of oats and corn at the re
gular place. She then returned to
the house awaited results. The wild
beast came(lbut it was a long time
before it oven ventured near tho food.
It'seeiued to scent danger, and twice
it ran away and remained some tlino.
The old man, however, waited and at
last the beast came and began its
feast. With wonderful agility the
aged farmer Jumped tq his feet and
had the strange animal, by the horns.
It was a hard struggle, and when
Mrs. Hammer came to the resoue of
the old man he was nearly exhaust
ed. It was securely bound and car
ried to the barn.
The animal has short, coarse hair
over Us body. It Is harSly two feet
high and about tbreo feet long. Its
logs are hairless and Its feet are like
a pig's. Its tall is like an ordinary
sheep's, and when tho animal be
comes mad the tall and ears are car
ried ereot. Many of the Inhabitants
of the neighborhood have seen the
captive and a majority are ot the
opinion that it is a wild blaok sheep.
A few think that it is au animal
whloh esoaped from somo smull show
which exhlted In Manhetm about two
years ago.

New York, DeclO. A Birming
ham special says: "Tho situation here
is very grave, and while all good citi
zens hopo for tho best, the ontlook is
not 'reassuring. Tho Hawcs murder
mystery is almost forgotten sinco tho
greater horror of Saturday night. Col.
Jones, commanding the troops is re
ported to havo said no feared violence
to Sheriff Smith moro than ho did any
further attompt to lynch Hawos. Sher
iff Smith and David Pruitt, one or his
chief deputies, havo been arrested on a
chargo of murder. Warrants for a
number of other officers have been
sworn out, but not yet served. The
statement of tho officers and those of
the men that were in tho crowd are
very conflicting Peoplo who were in
tho crowd say the officers fired first, and
that no one was making, an advanco
when tho first volloy was fired. They
claim also that the officers
while the crowd was running away,
and several men were hit in the baok.
On the other hand tho sheriff says a
number of shots were fired from the
crowd after the officers ceased firing.
Chief of Polico Picard was also ar
rested last night on a charge of murder.
Coroner Robott mado the arrest and
took charge of tho sheriff's office.
Yesterday afternoon tho news
spread that 1500 miners from tho
Pratt mine?, about five miles from Bir
mingham, would after dark inarch to
tht city armed with guns and dyna
mito cartridges and assault tho sol
diers and blow to atoms the jail. Col.
Jonos said tho soldiers would bo duly
notified by scouts 01 tho approach of
tho mob. Ho feared somo disturbance
but bolioved ho could make a success
ful rosistanco.
It is reported that Hawcs has just
made) a full confession of his crime.
Business is going on as usual to-day,
oxcopt that all tho saloons arc closod
by order of Colonel Jones, and tho
only avidenco of troublo remaining
is tne lino of troops and cannon guard
ing every approach to tho jail. Thoro
is still much feoling, but it is subdued.
No matter who was right or wrong on
Saturday, that terrible volley has sot
tied all desire of the mob to, break
down tho jail. It will not bo tried
again. Sheriff. Smith is still in jail,
under arrest for murder, and Chief of
Polico Picard was released on 910,000
bond this morning. Smith may leave
tho city under military escort until
further examination of tho oaso is
mado by tho coroner, but it has not
bcon fully determined as yet.

"Wlmt U tho roost money over made
by a tug in ono trip?" was asked of an
old tug man in South street.
"The very largest money ever obtained
was when two tugs picked up a derelict
off Sandy nook. Sbo was in good con
dition, but had been abandoned by net
crew, who were panto stricken. She
was drifting ashore, and the courts al
lowed a salvage of $88,000 for the two
or $14,000 for a day's work each. But
that wasn't a towing job. The biggest
prlco ever paid by a ship for towing at
this port, so far as I know, was when a
sbln captain 'had boat his way up to the
ugntsfifp after a long winter voyage
from Manila. Reaching this point, with
tho harbor beforo hint, the northwest
wind became a gale he could not face,
and ho saw tho shore of Staton Island
fade, and began to think he had Ber
muda hard aboard. He couldn't stand
that prospect, and was compelled to pay
$1,500 by a ncertlciM tug captain of
about my slse and disposition. ' That U an
