Special to the Globe.
Philadelphia, Sept. 7.—The letter
which was sent out by the chaiiman of the
Republican state committee, Mr. Thomas
N. Cooper, to government clerks at Wash- j
ington, soliciting subscriptions for the Re
publican cause, is likely to bring the chair
man into the courts. Civil Service Com
missioner Gregory said to-night that, had
he sent these letters to the private addresses
oi the clerks, instead of to the government
offices, the case would have another aspect [
Chairman Cooper was not at all scared at
the uproar his circular created. "Why.
that's all right," he said, when one was
handed to him. "We sen! that out to all
Republican officeholders, taking it, for
granted thai they are as much Republican
now as they ever were before. There's
nothing wrong in soliciting contributions
for the cause, and we take, the right to ad
dress circulars to all Republicans holding
office, thinking that they will feel a
pleasure in helping the cause. We send
the same circular out to all Republican citi
zens wherever we think we can get any
money." The senator smiled when spoken
to about being ait to jail. "Last year,"
said Mr. Cooper, "Miv Eaton, president of
the civil service commission, decided that
our action in sending out circulators is
within the law, and cannot possibly be con
structed as an infraction of it. Acting on
the strength of that opinion, 1 sent out the
circulators. In doing so I had a three-fold
purpose. First to get money, of which we
are in need; second, to show that Republi
can! are ho —: Republicans when serving
under a Democratic administration: thirdly,
to know that if Republicans were to be pre
vented from sending subscriptions so should

wish, 1 have no fear of a Democratic prison."

Cleveland, 0., Sept. 7.—j; ... M. A.
Foran, who represents the Cleveland dis
trict in Congress, is a shrewd and candid
observer of public events, and declines to
express his opinions until he has fully ma
tured them. In a talk with the Globe
correspondent to-day he stated his views as
follows: "I do not consider it by any
means settled thai the proposed amend
ment to the constitution will be carried.
taking Ohio out of the October list and
placing her among the November states.
.Senator John Sherman is an aspirant for
the presidency, and will, no doubt show
lip strong in the next Republican national
convention. It is to his interest to keep
< 'hid where she is as long as she is counted a
Republican state in presidential years. His
friends will all vote against the amend
ment, You will notice the Republican
platform is reticent on that point." "What,
Mr. Foran, 1!do you regard as the main local
point at issue in this campaign?" "The
regulation of the liquor question of course.
The Democrats are openly
and the Republicans to the principles of the
Scott law; thai is, the question of regula
tion by license vs. a tax law. If the Demo
crats carry the legislature a license amend
ment to the constitution will certainly be
submitted. President Cleveland's policy,
! believe, is growing in favor with think
ing men, and there is more and more of a
disposition to sustain him in his course.
Yes, the senatorial question will have some
bearing on the result but an endeavor is
being made to keep it in the background.
If we carry the legislature some will look
for the election of Mr. Thunnan and some
will think Gov. Hoa (ly should be pro
moted if he runs well and carries the legis
lature." "Do you think the Democrats will
carry Ohio?" "I really believe they will.
i think we will elect our state ticket and
also gain a Democratic general assembly.
Thai feeling seems to run all through the
party and a great, deal of strong and
will lie done. The increase of appoint
ments by the administration has had a good
effect, especially in strong Republican coun
ties, where Democrats have had no show
since the Hood. The registration law will
help us, especially in places like Cincinnati
and Cleveland. There are a great many
conservative Republicans, who are so well
pleased with our national and slate admin
istrations thai they will not take the trouble
to register so as to vote against them, and
there is one thine as true as gospel, the peo
ple arc tired of the bloody-shirt business.
No answering echo has been heard to Sher
man's speech. Do you suppose the large
Republican manufacturers, who are build
ing up a trade in the South, care to fight
the war over again? They would rather
sell broods to the new South than to light
again on issues that are dead."

ments for Minnesota and Dakota have been

before the waterways convention did not
produce a favorable impression here. A
Minnesota man who has been among Don
nelly's supporters said to a Globe corres
pondent this evening: "I am very much
surprised at Mr. Donnelly's course at the
waterways convention. I could not have
believed him capable of such bad judgment

capable of making such a speech as that
ought to expect to be appointed to any

It ought to."
The Sew York Fi£-l»t.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Sept. —The interest
Bhown by Secretary Manning in the New
York election is interpreted here as mean-
Ing two things. First, that if there was any
truth in the reports of trouble between Til
den and the administration the president
has made baste to patch it up in some way;
find second, that the administration has to
day some inteie>t in the coining struggle in
New York. The last mentioned fact is
causing a good deal of gossip among politi
cal gossipers, too. Will President Cleve
land's administration make the same record
for itself in New York politics that Presi
dent Arthur's did? is a question heard
on every band. President Arthur
fixed up" a slate for the New
York Republicans which gave the
Btate to the opposite party, broke the heart
of his excellent secretary "of the treasury,
and ended his chances for a re-election. Is
President Cleveland going to travel in his
footsteps? The fact that Manning is tak
ing hold of political work here shows
plainly that the first part of this season's
program is likely to be about like that of
two years ago. The second part is looked
for with great interest The Republicans
are confident that they can win the next
fight m New York. The struggle will be a
Closer one at least for there is a good deal
at stake on both sides.

that after leaving Ounalaska June 9. he
visited the new volcano on Bogoslea island

Postmaster* as Politicians.
! Special to tho Qlobe.
Washington, Sept. 7. —The slowness
ni' the administration in appointing fourth
class postmasters in Ohio is regarded by
; the Republicans of that state as very hurt
ful to their chances this fall. In explana
tion of this seeming paradox a writer in
the Sunday Herald makes a prominent
Buckeye Republican say that there are
1.000 third and fourth rate postofflces in
Ohio held by men who have always been
Republican workers, but who now are
afraid to take an active part in the cam
■ paign, lesi it may cost their position.
I Their salaries are not large, but in nearly
every instance the fourth class postmaster
is keeper of a shop or couutry store of some
sort, and the postoffice draws trade there.
Hence, none of the postmasters care to lose
them. If these places were all tilled by
Democrats now somebody would be disap
pointed, for there are usually several can
didates for each one. Those seeking these
positions are told that faithful and effective
work in the canvas will be rewarded when
it is over, and he who does most will stand
the besi chance to be appointed. Every
efficient Democrat is therefore in the field
hard at work, while some of the most ener
getic Republican canvassers are taking it
easy in their tents.
Consul Iteport on Cholera.
Washington, Sept. 7.—Consul Mason
at Marseilles has sent to the state depart
in. Mit a further report, dated Aug. 27, on
the cholera epidemic. He says: "Accepfr
; ing these statistics as now published, they
! are undoubtedly quite below the truth. The
deaths from Asiatic cholera in Marseilles
since the 20th inst. inclusive have numbered
1 by days as follows: 04, 89, 56, 45, 45, 39,
:.. Total deaths from all causes
<luring the same days were 102,
118, 9:2, 70, 88, 70, 630,
This, considering that the normal death
rate of Marseilles is less than twenty per
day, is a frightful record, and shows that
typhus and typhoid fevers are ravaging
This reeking city with a vehemence scarcely
less deadly than that of cholera itself.
.Mr. Mason says that the departures from
the city number about two thousand per
day, hut there has been no panic like that

gradually prepared for the developments
which for a time were suppressed
by the city government and the press.
With the exception of perhaps four or live
comparatively new and handsome streets,
the pestilence has this year visited every
part of the municipality and its suburbs.
The cholera has diminished notably in some
of the streets and quarters where it first ap
peared a month nirn, and this,
with t'.ie slowly increasing but still
small percentage of cases that recover
are the only present indications that the
pestilence has spent its most malignant

Mason says, is a tendency to complication

bination from which few patients are ever

Chinese government here, in the matter of
the recent massacre of Chinese at Rock
Springs, W. T.. until a report of the oc
currence had been received from the Chi
nese consul at San Francisco. When such a

of bringing the case to the attention ol this

far there had been no such report on the
subject between the minister and consul at

Tariff Keforin.
Special to the Olobe.
Washington, Sept. 7.— The 100 Rhode
Island manufacturers who have taken the
trouble to protest against any further tariff
tinkering this winter might as well have
saved their time and effort. They will
avail nothing. There is a determination on
the part of the administration to do some
thing with the tariff, and this determination
will be reached by a large majority of the
Democratic members of congress. The cry
is for reform, but not for radical reform.
I The administration will not favor radical j
changes and sweeping reductions, nor will
a majority of congress bo in favor of it. In
dications now are that the president and
cabinet may be able to hold Bill Morrison
down, tie Mr. Carlisle's hands by placing
him in the chair, and, with the aid and
counsel of a few such wise and conservative
heads as Randall, liolman and others, be
able to get a moderate tariff-reform meas

day, in a slaughter house at the yards, he
condemned twenty-nine that had been

market. The hogs were the property of
various scalpers who do business in the
yards. The heaviest weighed neatly two
hundred pounds, and the smallest was only
thirty pounds in weight. The puffed and
discolored flesh inside and, out and the sick
ening smell which attached to the carcasses
made discovery an easy matter. Cholera
has never been so prevalent among hogs at
the stock yards as it has been this season,
and scalpers, it is alleged, instead of en
deavoring to stamp out the disease by re
fusing to purchase, deliberately buy the
stock, in the hope that they can evade the
health inspectors on their regular rounds.

The Yacht Contest.
New York, Sept. 7.— Owing to the late- 1
ness of the start of the initial race between
the Genesta and the Puritan, and to the
lack" of wind afterwards, the yachts suc
ceeded in making only half the course, or
twenty miles. In this twenty miles beat to
windward, tun Puritan squarely out
sailed the Genesta one mile in
ten, and nearly two miles in
twenty. A haze settled upon the
bay all the morning, and there was no wind
front any quarter until nearly noon. A
hundred sail of yachts lay in the horse shoe
at Sandy Hook this morning when the
judges' boat, Lacenback, arrived from New
York with the judges and Messrs. J. F.
Tains, Charles Stebbins, Philip Schuyler.
At 9:45 o'clock a. in. Jay Gould's
steam yacht, Atlantis, passed out
by the hook, followed in ten minutes
by the tug Luther C. Ward, towing the
sloop Puritan. She was saluted by guns
from nearly every steam yacht in the fleet
while on her way to the Scotland lightship,
the starting point. The Genesta, remained
in the horseshoe while Mr. William Kreps
of the New York Yacht club, representing
the Puritan, was put on board from the
judge's boat. She then proceeded under
sail on the port tack to the lightship.
was also saluted by the large licet of yachts
now under way. The tide was running
flood during the forenoon. Two hundred
and seventeen vessels of all sizes and rig
were assembled within a circle of a mile 01
the Scotland light ship. After a tedious
wait of two hours, after the arrival
of the contestants at the lightship, the
preparatory signal was given from the
judge's boat at 1:80. It was followed by
the starting signal five minutes later. All
of the attendant fleet were then lying to
the southwest of the lightship, to give the
Genesta and Puritan clear water to
start in. The wind had come in
from the southeast, a moderate
breeze shortly after 1 and was hailed with
delight by the thousands of enthusiastic
spectators in the streams, who had paid
from Si to S3 a head to see the great con
test. By skillful maneuvering the skippers
Of both yachts brought them close enough
to the line between the judges' boats and
the lightship on the port tack to cross, In
a few seconds alter the
the Puritan slipped across the first close up
to the judge's boat at 1 hour, 35 minutes
and 55 seconds, but for some reason Capt.
Centre of the Genesta tacked to starboard
just before reaching it, losing 1 minute, 42
seconds, and being handicapped 32 seconds
thereby. They crossed at 1 hour, 37 min
utes and 37 seconds official time. Capt.
Crocker of the Puritan, which boat looked
very handsome with her mainsail, sprit
topsail, forestay sail, jib and jib top
,sail meant '"light" from the start.
At the moment Genesta crosseu
the line Puritan came about, and in thirty
seconds had filled away on the starboard
tack with Genesta a hundred yards on her
lee beam. The course was right "in the
winds eye" and a tug had started ten min
utes to log out the twenty miles to wind
ward and place a stake buoy for the yachts
to round. Cheered on by shouts from hun
dreds of spectators and followed by the im
mense flotilla of pleastise crafts the two
contestants headed due east on their first
reach. Finding that they could neither pass
the Puritan to the leeward or "outpoint"
him, Capt. Carter after twenty-three min
utes, suddenly put the Genesta about to
cross the Puritan's stern, but Capt. Crockei !
put his helm down at once, bringing the
handsome white sloop round in forty sec
onds later. The Genesta was full of tricks,
for round she came again in less than a
minute followed by the Puritan again in
fifty seconds. Both yachts were carrying
the same canvass. Instead of gaining by
which he imagined Capt. Carter had lost,
and the Puritan had gained a decided ad
vantage. Both yachts went about at 3:07,
and reached to the southward having made
about eight miles of easting on the star
board tack. Now the Puritan began to rap
idly open a gap between herself and Gen
ista, and when they next tacked to the
eastward at lea she was fully three
quarters of a mile to the windward of her
antagonist and one-eighth of a mile ahead.
At 5:11 both tacked to the southward again
and now the Genesta was over a mile on the
Puritans lee quarter. The way both yachts
"walked" through a fleet of schooners, in
cluding the Montauk, Fleetwing, America
and Columbia astonished the spectators and
proved the superior speed of these boats as
compared with the old models. At 0:30
when the judge's boat arrived at the outer
mark, it was sundown. The wind was
growing lighter and the yachts being then
two miles to the leeward* it was evident
that the race could not be sailed within the
required time limit of seven hours, so the
regatta committee ordered it postponed un
til to-morrow, when the boats will start at
the same hour and over a similar course.
All the accompanying yachts turned back
before dark and the Genesta and Puritan
were towed back to the Horseshoe. The
result of to-day's contest is thought by ex
perienced yachtsmen to be convincing proof
that the Puritan can beat the cutter urtder
any conditions.
The cup for which the Puritan and Gen
esta contested is held in this country by
virtue of the sailing of theya^J America,
was won thirty-four years \" , and has
never been recaptured by English sails. It
was offered by the Royal Yacht club in
1851, during the great world's fair of that
year open to yachts from all nations. The
America won by twenty minutes ahead of
the best of the other vessels, the Aurora.
The cup thus won became the property of
the New York yacht club in 1857,"the
America's owners having transferred it to
the club. In 1870 an attempt was made to
recover the cup. The race came off on Aug.
8 of that year, between the English yacht,
Cambrian, owned by James Ashbury, and
and a fleet of American yachts. The Cam
brian came in tenth in the race; the Magic,
first, anji the old America, second. In
1871 another trial was made by Mr. Ash
bury, who seemed determined to get back
the cup. In this contest the American
yachts, Columbia and Sappho, won live out
of the eight races arranged for. Twice
more, in IS7O and 1881, American yacht
men had to defend the cup. The contest
ants came from Canada, and were badly
beaten by the Americans.
The measurer of the New York Yacht
club gives the following as the measure
ment for calculation of sailing length:
Genesta, from topmast head to deck 97 2-10
feet eiid of boom to tip of bowsprit 140 5-10
feet, gaff 46 feet, water line 81 6-10 feet.
The Puritan's measurements are as follows?
From topmast head to deck 102 1-10 feet,
from end of boom to tip of bowsprit
144 0-10 feet, gaff 47 feet, water line
82 1-10 feet. She therefore gives the Gen
esta 31 seconds time allowance. The
Puritan was sailed by Capt. Aubrey Cocker,
assisted by Capt. Joe Ellsworth and twenty
two able-bodied seamen, and the Genesta
was sailed by Capt, John Carter and mate,
William Hargate, and fifteen British tars.

New York, Sept. —The boat race be
tween Hanlan, Ross and Lee, three miles
with a turn, at Sheephead Bay this after
noon was for a purse of •51,200, contributed
by the hotels. The money was to be divided
8600 to the first, *400 to the second and $300
to the third. It was a sort of procession,
without interest and was witnessed by only
a few people. Ilanlan had a slight lead,
rowing easily throughout, while Ross and
Lee rowed here, there and everywhere over
the course and ran into each other twice.
Hanlan finished first in 21:21 by three
lengths, Lee second, ten lengths ahead of
Ross. Both Lee and Ross claimed fouls,
but the referee did not change the positions.
Canadian Yacht Racing 1.
Special to the Globe.
Toronto, Ont., Sept. —The annual
races of the Royal Canadian Yacht club
took place here to-day, when the New
York forty-ton Winona entered for the
Marquis of Lome cup race. The Oriole, a
ninety- three ton schooner belonging to the
club allowed the New York sloop live min
utes and twenty seconds. Several smaller
club yachts were allowed from three to
twenty-six minutes by the Oriole
and the Winona. There was a line fresh
gale at the start of the race and the Winona
left her competitors far behind for the first
five miles of the thirty-live miles course.
The wind went down, however, and none
of the yachts could cover the course in the
seven hours required. The race is to be
sailed over at an early date.

eral weeks.
Base Ball.
Philadelphia, Sept. 7.—The New
York club to-day received a serious set-back
in its light for the championship pennant
by being again defeated by the Philadel
phias. They batted hard and ran bases
with vim, but repeated brilliant plays by
the home players made run getting difficult,
the New Yorkers having two men left on
bases in three different innings. There
were many pretty plays in the field, the
more noteworthy being a triple play by
Conner and Gerhardt in the first inning, and
a double play in the second inning by the
same players. There were brilliant catches
also made by O'Rourke, Andrews, Fogarty
and Bastian. Esterbrook and Gerhardt
fielded poorly, and their errors with Welch's
wild pitches, gave the home club the game.

batting and fair fielding. Radbourne
pitched for seven innings as if he did not
care whether he was hit or not and \he re
sult was six singles, three donbles and a
three-bagger, yielding six runs for Boston
two earned. Providence in the meantime
could not get more than one hit in any in
ning, except the seventh, when three singles
yielded an earned run, but in the last of the
ninth the champion struck a lucky streak on
batting and six hits, combined with a fum
ble and an overthrow, brought in five runs
and tied the scores. Then Radbourne
pitched his best, but could not prevent a
single and a home nan in the eleventh in

Providence, R. 1., Sept. 7. 1n an in
terview with President Allen and Manager
Frank Bancroft of the Providence base ball
club in regard to a dispatch received here
relative to the ousting of Providence. De
troit and Buffalo from the league and the
selling of Bancroft and his players to the
Philadelphia and Washington clubs, it
was learned that there had not been
any trade of the kind. Mr. Bancroft
stated emphatically that he had entered
into no agreement with the Athletics of
Philadelphia, and, so far as he was aware,
Radboume had not done so. Both Mr.
Allen and Mr. Bancroft expressed surprise
at the alleged action at the Saratoga confer
ence of the league and American associa
tion, because they have received ample as
surance since the meeting that the other
clubs were desirous that Providence should
remain in the league next season.

A Boy's Tragic Suicide.
Special to the Globe.
Philadelphia, Sept. 7.—A lad aged 11
years committed suicide to-day by Bhooting
himself, after reading a trashy story of a
duel. The boy, whose name was Oscar
Tarry, is the son of a prominent insurance
man. This morning his lather wakened
him and told him to hurry down to break
fast. As the son did not appear within a
reasonable time the father went to the boy's
room and endeavored to persuade him to
come. The youngster was reading in bed,
and was evidently much absorbed in the
story. Oscar protested that he did not feel
hungry and did not want to go down. So
the parent left him and repaired to the
dining-room. Presently he was startled by
a sharp report. He thought something had
fallen up stairs, and when he went to
the bedroom he was terrified with
the sight of the deail body of his child lying
in front of the mirror. A Colt's pistol was
on the floor near the boy's outstretched
hand. The bullet had gone right through
the boy's head. Alter a while Mr. Parry
remembered that his son had been reading
and looking for a paper, the father
found it to be a copy of the Hartford
Times, a paper publishing serial stories,
and the particular story that the boy had
been reading was entitled "Dying on the
point of honor, or tlie strange story of
a Souther duel." The lad was a very bright
boy, and the lather said that to his knowl
edge he had not been in the habit of reading
trashy literature. Tlie pistol which the boy
used was on the top shelf of a closet and in
order to reach it he had to climb on a chair.
Evidently he stood in front of the looking
glass and fired the shot, as his body was
found in a position which indicated this.
Were They Poisoned, to EieulEi?
Special to the Globe.
Urkana, 111., Sept. 7.— Mr. and Mrs.
Hiram Peabody were prominent and
honored residents of St. Joseph, this
county. Miss Belle Hasty, daughter of
Uobert Hasty, and a young" woman of fine
character ami pleasant manners, lived with
the Peabody family, and was said to be en
gaged to Young Silas Peabody. Young
Peabody's parents, particularly his mother,
were opposed to this marriage, owing to Miss
Hasty's poor health. On Aug. a Mrs. Pea
body died very suddenly of what appeared
to be neuralgia of the stomach. On Aug. 7
Mr. Peabody died with the same symptoms.
On Sept. 1 Miss Hasty and young Silas Pea
body were taken with the same symptoms,
and the young lady died, while the young
man lias recovered. Since that time sus
picion has been awakened by the alleged
discovery of a package of rat
poison pinned to the under garment which
Miss Hasty had laid off just before her
death, that the latter had poisoned Mr. and
Mrs. Peabody with the hope of marrying
the son and then concluded to kill him and
herself. Yesterday Rev. J. W. Perkins re
fused to preach her funeral sermon until
the matter was cleared up. Investigation
will be made. All parties in the case bear
excellent reputations.
Cang-ht tlie Mayor.
Jackson, Mich., Sept. 7.—The police
force of this city having been found inade
quate to the task of keeping the disorderly
elements straight, a police commission was
organized with power to control the police
force. This commission has made several
raids on gambling houses, but failed to cap
ture any important persons. There were
complaints that only minor gamblers were
arrested, but the commission paid no atten
tion to them. Last Saturday night they
pulled a new gambling-room and captured
tlie mayor and several city officials. Alex
ander, the man running the gambling room,
had been ••pulled' a few days ago in
another room and changed to the present
place, where it was supposed he would be
protected b> Hie city orlicials playing. No
arrests were made, but the names of the
players were taken. The cards, chips.etc,
were seized. Mayor Pringle,City Attorney
Peck, Joseph Hanaw, owner of the block,
and about a dozen others, including some
wealthy citizen were in the room at the
time. The affair will probably cause con
siderable trouble before it is done with, and
an attempt will doubtless be made to re
move some members, if not all of the police
Rioters Arrested.
Chetknxe, Wyo., Sept. 7.—The sneriff
of Sweetwater county has arrested twenty
two of the supposed leaders of the lloek
Springs riot, including Isaiah Whitehouse,
a member elect of the legislature. They
were taken to Green River, Utah, anil
placed in jail. They will have a prelim
inary hearing to-morrow. More arrests
Will follow. The charges against the pris
oners are murder, arson, rioting and rob
bery. The ruins of Chinatown have not
yet been searched and no more dead bodies
have yet been discovered. It is estimated
now the number of killed was about fifty,
including several that died of wounds in
the surrounding hills. Ail the Chinamen at
work in the AJmy coal mines, near Evans
ton, numbering 100, have been taken to the
latter place under escort of the United
States troops. A Gatling gun was sent
from hereto Evanston yesterday. Tlie mil
itary is under the command of Col. Ander
son of the Ninth United States infantry,
stationed at 1 luck Springs, Evanston and
AJmy, guarding company property. No
further trouble is apprehended.
Quiet After the Lynching.
Chattanooga, Term., Sept. 7—The city
is now quiet, but men are seen in groups
everywhere discussing the terrible events
of last night. There is a great deal of sup
pressed excitement but no fears of any fur
ther trouble. The body of the murderer,
Williams, was cut down from the beam in
the jail at oa. in. and was taken in charge
by his family. William T. Hanley, a prom
inent young man who was shot during the
indiscriminate shooting of the negro mob,
died this morning from his wounds, and
his death lias intensified the public grief.
Ben Palmer, the negro who was shot, is
very low and will perhaps die. The other
wounded men are not seriously hurt. The,
remains of the ex-chief of police, whom
Williams so brutally murdered, will be in
terred to-day. It is now clear that had
the negroes not attempted an outbreak, no
shooting would have occurred. The hang
ing was done within the jail building with
out excitement or disorder.
Terrific Explosion.
Titusvii.lk, Pa., Sept. 7. —The seven
hundred and lifty-barrel steel still at tlie
American oil works in the eastern portion
of the city exploded with terrinic force at
10:45 this morning. The top was blown off
and houses shaken all over town Doors
were slammed and glass was broken. One
hundred barrels of oil in the tank caught
fire and burned fiercely for two hours, but
the city fire department, by strenuous
efforts, prevented a spread of the tlames,
which at one time threatened the entire
works. William Sodiman was slightly in- j
jured by flying brick. The loss will reach !
$5,000 without insurance.

MABTHT, Tex., Sept. 7.—Washington
Sledge, a colored school teacher from liob

swindling. The gravity of the charge con- i
sists in offering for sale printed copies of a j
letter purporting to have been written by I
Jesus Christ and found hidden beneath a
stone near where the croas stood at Mount
Calvary. Sledge would represent that a j
copy of this letter hung up in a house would
have the effect of preventing diseases and
pests of all kinds, and would also ward off

Entire fields of corn and tobacco were de
stroyed. in many fields not even a leal of
tobacco was left on the stalk. Ears of
corn were broken from the stalks while
little more than half up. The hailstonet
were as large as pullet eggs. The destruc
tion was general where the storm touched.

at 8100,000.
ISlazins' Petroleum.
Cleveland, Sept. 7.—At 2:30 thii
morning a fire started in the Dean oil
works which caused an explosion of three
stills. The overflowing and flaming oil
emptied into Kingsbory creek and ran to
the Standard oil yards, setting fire to the
agitators south of the New York, Penn
sylvania & Ohio track. The loss to the
company is scarcely in proportion to the
magnitude or the fire. Not more than 5,000
barrels of oil were lost and the value was
less than 95,000. The loss on the plant is
estimated at from §30,000 to $40,000.
Killed His neighbor.
Greenville, Sept. 7.— On Saturday
night John Essick shot and killed William
Wise. Essick, while in his back yard,
heard his wife scream in the honse. En
tering, he saw William Wise, a neighbor,
run out at the front door. Seizing a shot
gun, he fired and sent the charge through
Wise's body. Wise died at midnight. Be

we are making more whisky than we can

"We are being shut out pretty generally.
Most Americans do not know that there are

prefer their own liquor. Russia and Aus
tria make their own, and France is not
much of a patron. Spain used to take a
great deal of American spirits, but the
cholera has been so bad there this year that
I guess the trade has been temporarily
spoiled. Until a few years ago we had the
South American trade."
