Suicide o£ a German Nobleman.
Special to the Globe.
Montreal, Sept. 12.—A most romantic
suicide was that of Count H. Wilhelm
Browne, a wealthy young nobleman of
Berlin, who arrived by steamer this morn
ing from New South "Wales, where he has
been visiting relatives. At 2 o'clock this
afternoon he shot himself in front of
the St. Lawrence hall. The par
ticulars, hurriedly obtained from his
friends, say that the count, who
owned a large estate in Germany
left home early last spring on a visit to New
South Wales. Australia, and South America,
leaving a young and beautiful wife behind
aim. Having reached Rio Janeiro on his
return voyage he received a cablegram that
his wife had tied from her home with a
j-oung tradesman and was supposed to be
either in New South Wales or in Canada.
He at once left for Wales, but while there
could and no trace of the guilty pair,
and he accordingly came here, where
he found his wife and her
paramour living at one of the hotels. He
visited her and entreated her to return to
him. but without avail. He then went to
St. Lawrence ball and had dinner, after
which he walked coolly out onto the outside
walk, pulled a revolver and discharged it,
the bullet going into the left ear. He was
conveyed to the Notre Dame hospital,
where he lies in a dangerous condition.
Swift Justice.
Bisbee, Ariz., Sept. 12.—Late Thursday
night a light occurred in a gambling house
here, in which an unknown Mexican, who
was the aggressor, was worsted. He left
the place after the row and was not seen
again until about 4:30 Friday morning,
when he made his appearance with a re
peating rifle and a belt of cartridges. When
he arrived there were about forty men in the
saloon. He was on the sidewalk,
and commenced shooting indiscriminately
into the crowd. His first shot struck Dave
Heckey in the jaw, near the ear, and in its
course tore off a portion of his upper lip,
coming out of the mouth. The next shot
struck James Kehel in the left cheek bone,
went through to his neck and ranged down
ward into his back. It is not expected that
he will recover. George Soles received the
next shot through the left shoulder, but it
is not thought the wound is fatal. Jack
Weber received a shot in the foot, the bullet
coming out at his heel. Another just grazed
lie elbow of Frank Gardiner. The Mexi
can fired fifteen shots into the saloon in
rapid succession. After clearing out this
saloon he went further up the street and
fired two shots into Tierce's saloon and two
shots into Courten's saloon and disappeared
into the canyon. As he disappeared a
soldier fired four shots at him without
effect No steps were taken to capture the
assassin until daylight, when citizens
started in search. About 9 o'clock he was
found in a Mexican house in bed. After
getting all the evidence that was necessary
a rope was procured and the assassin was
taken up the canyon and hanged to a tree.
Several Persons Injured.
New York, Sept, 12.—The old ware
house and factory of Swan & Finch, at No.
115 Maiden Lane, was destroyed by tire this
forenoon. The flames extended to the
southern half of the double building, and
damaged the stock of leaf tobacco of Lich
tenstein Bros, to the extent of about
£40.000. Swan & Finch's loss is put at
825,000 and the loss on the building at
$10,000. The entire available force of the
fire department in the lower district was
called out to fight the flames that threat
ened surrounding buildings. Insurance
covers the losses. The tire broke out very
suddenly in the factory in the rear of No.
115, and surprised the people in the build

thought themselves of escape, exit by the
stairs was cut off by the lire.
John Zigler, an aged carpenter at work
on the third floor of the building, ran to
the window, and letting himself down,
hung from the sill shouting for help.
Some one brought a tall ladder, and mount

Zigler was badly burned about the hands
and arms. John Donnelly, pressman in the

Chicago, Sept. About 7 o'clock
Thursday evening a resident of this city
dropped unconscious to the sidewalk at
Eldridge court and Wabash avenue. The
usual city crowd gathered with its
wonted celerity and among the curi
ous was a doctor. The medical man
made a cursory examination of the unfor
tunate, sagely pronounced it a case of ar
senical poisoning and suggested that the
police be called to take charge of the man.
When the patrol wagon ar
rived the doctor's opinion was reported to
the police, and they set out for the county
hospital with the victim. On the way to
the hospital the man's breathing, which
had been labored, became more "subdued,
and finally ceased altogether. An euridite
"copper placed his hand on the
man's heart. There was no pulsation,
and he pronounced him dead. Ar
riving at the county hospital the
policemen took their charge to the morgue,
placed it on a slab, straightened the limbs
and left it to its rest, but its repose
was not as calm as a properly-con
ducted corpse is supposed to be. In
a little while the morgue-keeper ob
served a manifest twitching of the
muscles, and before he had recovered from
his amazement the supposed corpse be
trayed unmistakable evidence of animation.
He called the medical attendants and the
rapidly reviving man was taken into the
hospital, where it was found that he was
merely suffering from hysteria. He was
treated accordingly and was discharged.

Yon Hoffman, the New York banker, and is
very wealthy. He has been in jail here
since the indictment. Paddock, a cattleman,
is included in the same indictment, which is
for the murder of Luftus Itiley, a cowboy,
in ISS3. The circumstances of the killing
are that several cowboys had threatened the
marquis' life on sight, one O'Donald being
particularly vehement. The marquis, be
lieving O'Donald would do as he said, was
on the lookout on the hunting trail, accom
panied by Paddock, when O'Donald, Riley
and Wannegan came along. Firing began

A Passenger Train Wrecked.
Denver, Col., Sept. 12.—News reached
here at an early hour this morning of a
wreck on the South Park road, three miles
east of Como. The train was the Leadville
express. When approaching a slight down
grade, the engineer discovered the air brakes
would not work. With greatly increased
speed the train struck the sharp down grade
curve, when, the two coaches broke
from the engine, lumped the track and were
piled up in a ditch, a complete wreck. All
of the ten passengers miraculously escaped
serious injury except a Mrs. Cronkhite of
Denver, who sustained a fracture of both
arms and internal injuries.

under the insolvent laws. He was sub
jected to a rigid examination, but the pros
ecution failed to show that he had a single
dollar left. Mr. Riddle said that after his
financial affairs were arranged he would be
$25,000 in debt, but had no doubt he would
recover his losses. Before the . failure of

Peoiua, 111., Sept. 12,—The large sugar
works of the American Glucose company
were burned to the ground this morning en
tailing a loss of $250,000. The flames
originated near the dry-bone kiln, and,
driven by a high wind, spread with great
rapidity. The heat was so intense that the
firemen could scarcely approach the burn
ing building. Some ninety men employed
in the factory at the time barely escaped
with their lives. The water supply was in
sufficient to cope with the flames. The in
surance is held by Eastern linns, and the
amount is not known here. It will, however,
fall far short of the loss.

Gen. Vilas Talks.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Sept. 12. —Postmaster
General W. F. Yilas and daughter, Miss
Millie Vilas, arrived this evening from the
West. Mr. Viias has been spending his
summer vacation in the pine woods at the
headwaters of the Wisconsin and
Fox rivers and is the very picture
of health. In conversation with
a reporter the general expressed
the great interest in the" Ohio campaign and
anxiously inquired for the latest news from
the seat of war. On being informed that
the Democratic prospects In Ohio are
brighter than they were two years ago at
this time the postmaster gen
eral appeared highly gratified.
Mr. Vilas said that he would be at
his office bright and early Monday morning,
ready for business. The postmaster gen
eral said that since the 4th of March over
eight hundred Democrats have been ap
pointed to positions in the railway mail ser
vice, displacing that many Republicans. At

Painesville, 0., Sept. 12. —Gov.
Hoadly addressed a large audience here to
night upon the issues of the state campaign.
His address was devoted in the
main to replying to certain portions
of Senator Sherman's speech at Ham
ilton upon the Southern question. The
speaker said he was flattered by the atten
tion of Senator Sherman, as he stood head
and shoulders above every other Republi
can in Ohio, yet he had no hesitation, al
though a tyro in politics, in taking up the
glove, for if over a man's argu
ments were clearly and mis
chievously in the wrong it was certainly
in this case. The speaker declared that
Mr. Sherman, knowing that his re-election
to the senate and possibly his candidacy for
the presidency depended upon the vote of
Ohio this fall, and knowing that the people
of Ohio were, during the war, loyal
and patriotic and opposed to the
Southern confederacy, and was satisfied
with the results of the war, he sought to
renew the battle fever, that he might reap
the reward in emoluments and salary.
The speaker said some of the colored men
did not vote the Republican ticket
and perforce they were prevented by
force and fraud. This presumption was
unsustained by proof and was utterly un
true. The truth had been foreseen by Gov.
Andrews, one of the truest friends the
slaves of America ever had, when he de
clared that the colored race recognized
the whites as their best friends and would
vote with them unless excited by external
force. Gov. Hoadly further said that
Senator Sherman had threatened
to reduce the representation based
on the colored vote of the South. This
could not be done as the fif
teenth amendment had made the
fourteenth amendment inoperative.
"The congressional power may extend to
Republican Rhode Island." said he, "which
maintains a know-nothing discrimination
against the right of foreign-born citizens to
vote, but does not apply to the South,
where the colored man's right to vote is as
free as the air."
Tammany Loyal to Kelly.
Special to the Globe.
New York, Sept. 12.—Anyone who has
taken stock in the alleged trouble in Tam
many hall, the supposed plots against John
Kelly, the much talked of schemes and
plans to dethrone the veteran leader and
the predictions that a new departure would
soon put Tammany in an entirely new po
sition, would not have found a particle of
confirmation of these stories in the pro
ceedings of the Tammany gen
eral committee last evening. There
was not a word spoken that
gave the slightest color to the reports of a
growing anti-Kelly faction. If there is
any anti-Kelly faction it is certainly making
a ve# still hunt. The committee, which
was said to have gone to Clifton Springs to
make Mr. Kelly change his mind about
nomitating Joseph D. Stevens for sheriff,
had nothing to say of the result of their
mission. In fact they did not get an
interview with Mr. Kelly. , Police
Justice John J. Gorman, who is
believed to be as near John Kelly as any
body in Tammany hall, said, when asked
about the alleged plottir.gs against Mr.
Kelly: "There is nothing in it. There is
of course a strong contest for the nomina
tions this fall, because the nominations are
of importance. The struggle for place is
naturally very violent. The office of sheriff
is important and lucrative. It is no wonder
that various strong Tammany men want
it, but of this you may be sure,
the nomination will be made by the con
vention duly chosen to make it and it is
I nothing unusual or revolutionary in Tar
n many for all candidates to summon their
' friends to aid them in getting the nomination
But in all this there is no danger of a split
in Tammany. This is certain, that who
ever is nominated by the duly chosen con
vention will receive the united support of
Tammany and there will be no split."

Special to the Globe.
Washington, Sept. 12.—1t is easy to
see from this standpoint that the most im
portant feature of the political struggles
now going on in the several states is the
election of the legislatures which are to
choose members of the senate. The terms
of twenty-five senators expire in March,
18S7, and where they are from states whose
legislatures are to be elected | biennally,
their successors must be selected by the leg
islatures chosen this fall. The ; Democrats
are confident that with care they may
secure enough of these to gain control of
the senate. Of the twenty-live senators
whose terms will expire on the 3d of March,
18S7, seventeen' are Republicans and eight
are Democrats. The Republicans are
Messrs. Miller of California, Jlawley, Har
rison, Hale, Dawes, Conger, '- McMillan,
Van Wyck, SeweU, Miller of New York,
Sherman; Mitchell, Aldrich, Edwards,
Mahone and Sawyer. The Democrats are
Messrs. Gray, Jones of Florida, Gorman
Cockrell, Fair. Jackson, Maxey and Gam
den. According to Democratic calculations
their party may count confidently upon
electing successors to eight of the nine who
go out on their side. They count Dela
ware, Florida, Maryland, Mississippi, Wis
consin, Tennessee, Texas, and West Vir
ginia as safe to elect Democratic senators
and admit that of the niue outgoing Demo
crats the seat of only Fair of Nevada is at
all doubtful. With regard to S the sixteen
retiring Republicans, Democrats contend
that eight of them can by replaced by
Democrats by good management. It is
claimed that in California (Miller), Connec
ticut (ilawley), Indiana (Harrison), Mich
igan (Conger), New Jersey (Sewell), New
York (Miller), Ohio (Sherman), and Vir
ginia (Mahone), Democratic:, legislatures
maybe elected. If the Democrats could
succeed in making their estimates hold good
they would gain nine senators and lose one,
which would give them a majority in the
senate. ;

Washington, Sept. 12.— the last
session congress authorized the postmaster
general to lease the buildings occupied by
third-class postoffices. The amount of the
appropriation, however, was only 8450,000,
or just about enough money to defray the
expense of leasing the buildings for offices
of the first and second class, conse
quently the postmaster general
has been unable to carry out
the provisions of the act authorizing the
leasing of third-class offices. There are
1,728 third-class offices, and it is estimated
that 5350,000 will be required annually to
defray the expenses of leasing suitable
quarters for them. It is probable that when
congress meets a recommendation will be
made by the postmaster general that an
adequate appropriation be made for these
leases, or that the act be repealed.

Genesta did not even start to-day in the
outside race. They were at the starting
point by 11 o'clock, but there was not a
breath of wind until 1:30. The committee
announced their intention of starting soon

whole-sail breeze from the south-southwest.
Sir Richard Sutton objected to the starting.
Mr. Webb said that he. understood they
could uot finish in the dark. The Puritan's
people also objected for a similar reason.
The race is postponed until Tuesday. On
Monday the yachts will sail over the New
York yacht club course.
Shccpshead Bay Races.
New York, Sept. 12.Much dissatisfac
tion was expressed by the betting men to
day at the decisions of the judges in two of
the races at Sheepshead Bay. In the fifth
race, Gleaner was slightly fouled by
Pericles. The latter came in first, and
Bella, who was innocent of any wrong, was
second. The first place, however, was
given to Gleaner. The steeplechase, in
view of the betting and the way the race
was run, was pronounced a transparent fraud
Brough Burke, Cochrane and Sun Star
were strong favorites. The bookmakers
laid their wagers with a view to Trombone"
as the winner, and he won, for though the
other two had much the best speed and led
the field far away, their riders allowed
them to run out of the course, and Trom
bone galloped in and was given the race.

Emory A. Storrs.
Ottawa, 111., Sept. 12.— city was
thrown into excitement this morning by the
remark on the street that Emory A. Storrs,
the Chicago lawyer, had died very sud
denly at his room in the Clifton hotel, this
city. For two days he had been suffering
slight indisposition, but no serious conse
quences had been even thought of. The
best of medical attention had been given
him and at no time was he confined
to his room. His wife came from Chicago
last evening. During the night it was nec
essary to administer medicine, which was
done by Mrs. Storrs herself. This morning,
upon awakening, she found her husband in
a dying condition and beyond medical aid.
His death took place at 7:10 o'clock and
was without suifuriug, the cause being
paralysis of the heart. Mr. Storrs had been
in this city about ten days.
Chicago, Sept. 12. —A telegram was re
ceived at the law office of Emory A. Storrs
this morning, announcing that the well
known barrister died at Ottawa, 111., last
night of paralysis of the heart. It was
known that Mr. Storrs was ill, but it was
not considered serious until yesterday after
noon, when his wife was telegraphed to
and went to him. He had been arguing a
case before the supreme court and was
taken ill on Friday.
Mr. Storrs was born in Oattaraugue county,
New York, Aug. 12, 1835. He studied law
first with his father and the Hon. M. B.
Chamlain at Cuba, Alleghany county, N. Y.
Young Storrs then went to Buffalo, where,
after dilligently pursuing his legal studies in
the office of Austin and Scroggs, he was ad
mitted to practice in 1855. In 1557 he went to
New York city, remaining there but two
years. He came thence to Chicago in 1859.
Devoted to his profession, he has raielybeen
an office-seeker or office holder, and yet as a
conspicuous citizen of the Republic he has
ever taken a profound, intelligent and effi
cient interest in political affairs. Politically
a decided RepuWic-an, to that party he has
constantly dedicated his great talent. In 1868,
1872 and 1880 ho was a delegate-at-large
from Illinois to the national Republican con
vention being on each occasion one of the
foroinost in shaping the policy, character
izing the resolutions and formulating the
platforms of the party. He dratted the con
stitution and by-lavs of the Citizens' associa
tion and was interested in the Historical so
ciety, the Press club and other institutions of
a kindred character. Aetionis his motto, as has
been instanced by his connection with the
Citizens' League for the Suppression of the
Sale of Liquor to Minors. As substantial
monuments of his varied accomplishments iv
general literature, attention might be called
to his numerous lectures, notably those on
"The English Constitution," "Culture,"
"Patriotism," "Men of Action," "Muni
cipal Government," and lectures before the
Chicago Historical society. His cGarfleld
funeral orations before the Union League
club aud at the great lake front meeting
were of noble quality and lustered phrase.
Of theimportant cases in which he has figured
as counsel it will sufliee to enumerate the
great Babcock conspiracy ease in St.
Louis, the contested election case for the in
corporation of the city under the genoral law,
the famous Michigan University case, the
duty of railroads to deliver grain to elevators
to which it was consigned, the uniform of
taxation case and cases involving the consti
tutionality of the law providing for the erec
tion of new state house, and also of the Lin
coln and South park statues, involving a
question as to the power of municipalities to
impose taxes without consent. His tine
abilities as a criminal lawyer were amply
demonstrated in the famous Sullivan, Uaa
som and Cochrano murder eases, as well as
his masterly defense of Storey and Wilkie at
Belvidere, indicted for conspiracy. In this
connection it is well to note bis defense of the
Chicago Times in the Higglns libel suit. His
familiarity with political history, political
philosophy and political economy has been re
vealed again and again. Iv 1881 Mr. Storr's
friends suggested him for the office of attor
ney general under President Arthur, but
without success. Nothing dispirited Mr.
Storr. He engaged actively in the campaign
of 1884, and stumped several of the Eastern
states. His practice suffered considerably
from neglect occasioned by his interest
in politics and those who know of
his intimately were not surprised
when pecuniary considerations led him to
espouse the cause of Mackiu, the ballot-box
stuffer.lt was while in Ottawa in attendance
upon the supreme court in tbis case that he
broke down and died. He leaves a charming
wife and a married son who resides in New
York. At the time of his death he was con
sidering a flattering offer to go to Utah for
the purpose of defending the Mormons in the
polygamy cases.
Serious Surgical Operation.
Special to the Globe.
Wasiiingtox, Sept. 12. —Ex-Senator
Fowler of Tennessee is at the Providence
hospital, where he was subjected Wednes
day to a very complicated and formidable
surgical operation. Mr. Fowler has been a
sufferer for a long time with a malignant
disease of the bone affecting his lower
jaw. Some time ago a small portion of the
bone was removed, but not enough, as it
proved, to eradicate'the disease. Wednes
day the surgeon removed about three inches
of the jaw bone from the center of the
chin back. The patient .bore the heroic
operation with fortitude. The opera
tion was deemed necessary in
order to prolong life. After the operation
the patient's tongue was pierced and a
thread run through it, which was attached
to a bandage around his body. This has
been done to keep the tongue in place, as
otherwise, on account of the displacement
of the muscle, it might roll back and suffo
cate the patient.
A building, corner of Rebecca and Laflin
streets, Chicago, occupied by J. W. Sherman,
fell while being raised to the street level, kill
ing Hugh Smith and injuring several others.

Ciiicago, Sept. 12.—The Times special
London cable says: The Democratic party
in England is much confused. It is still
without any definite program, and yet some
of its principal political leaders have felt
themselves compelled to make party utter
ances. These have so far been extremely
contradictory. One result is that
the party's parliamentary candidates are
making all sorts of Dleilges, and the Lib
eral campaign just now looks very much,
like a go-as-you-please race. In Great
Britain alone there are more than 500 Lib
eral candidates in the field. They
comprise Liberals, Whigs, Moderaters, and
Radicals and the men forming each class
are gradually getting into record as pledg
ing themselves to all manner of political
crudities. Unless the party as a whole
soon be placed under some intelligible pro
gram and bound down to some sen
sible management, it will be rent to
pieces beyond the possibility of
reorganization. The Gladstone members
of the house of commons who are candi
dates for re-election are appealing to him to
end the anarchy of formulating a policy
which will freeze the cranks out of the
canvass and thus save the party's strength
from being frittered away. It'has accord
ingly been decided to
of the recognized leaders of all the faction!
in the Liberal party etrly in October, foi
the purpose of obtaining some general
understanding. All efforts thus far mad«
to induce Mr. Gladstone to make a
pronouncement have failed. He wil]
not even promise to address the comma
conference. He has, it is true, promised
to write a political address this fall to his
Midlothian constituency, but he has fixed
the date for the issue of this letter so that
it will be some time after the October meet
ing. In this letter the ex-premier will
state and explain at length the platform
of principles he deems best for his party.
In the meantime strong efforts are being
made to bring about a compromise between
the hostile views entertained by the follow
ers of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain and those
of the Marquis of Hartington, the former
representing the straight-out radicals
of the Liberal party and the latter
the Whigs. If the Radicals and Whigs can
reach a common understanding for the
campaign, Mr. Gladstone, it is presumed,
will personally indorse it and add to it
the necessary elements to attract the
majorities of the other factions, and
thus start his party with a united front in
It is even intimated that Mr. Gladstone
has his program ready now, that he is en
gaged in the task of training Mr. Chamber
lain and Lord Hartington up to it, and that
the October conference will simply be a
perfunctory affair for the purpose of allow
ing the hostile leaders an occasion to sub

The Russian government has decided to
transfer the administration of its Black Sea
fleet from Nicolaieff to Sabastadol.
The harbor at the latter place ia
being much enlarged, and immense forta
and other works of defense are
being constructed around its approaches.
The czar is also organizing a fleet to be
stationed at Patoum, on the east coast of
the Black Sea. This little town is being
rapidly enlarged, because of its stratigal im
portance as tho central point of Russian
defense of the east coast of the Black
Sea. This action of the czar in
now restoring to Sebastapol the military
and naval prestige which it possessed be
fore the Crimean war is regarded with
misgivings in certain British Indian quar
ters. A Russian naval commissioner will
soon be dispatched to examine and report
upon the condition of all the harbors along

attend the expulsion of the Russian Poles
from Prussia, now being ruthlessly enforced
under the orders of Prince Bismarck. The
police who are engaged in this work of ex
pulsion recently came across a
well-to-do Polish gentleman named
Zarnayski. lie owned much desirable land
iv Posen, but lived with his family in a
beautiful chateau in France most of the
time, He was ordered to settle up his
affairs and quit Posen.. lie demurred
and then set up a claim to
being a French subject, and succeeded
in having his appeal placed before M. De
Freycinet, French minister for foreign af
fairs. In his appeal Zarnajski established
the fact that he was born iv Paris and was
a French subject. He had, however, be
come so identified with the place of
his estate in Posen that the French gov
ernment declined to formally interfere in
the ca^e, and M. De Freycinet contented
himself with informally referring the case
to the German government as one worthy
of consideration. Tlw result has
been that the Prussian authorities
have notilied Zarnajski that ho may retain
his interests in Germany upon condition of
naturalizing himself as a Prussian
subject and residing on his estates in
Posen. So many terrible injustices have
been perpetrated upon worthy Poles by the
indiscriminate expulsion which has been
carried on against the whole race of liussian
exiles resident in . Prussia, that portions
of the German press have at last been
stirred up to protest against this wholesale

Trial of tine Sensationalists.
Loxdox, Sept. 12.—The examination of
Mr. Stead, editor of the Gazette, Mrs.
Jarrett, Mr. Bramwell Booth, Mrs. Combe,
Mr. Jackues and Mrs. Mawry, defendants
in the Eliza Armstrong abduction case,
was resumed at the Bow street
police court to-day. Mr. Eussell,
counsel for the defense, continued
the cross-examination of the mother of
Eliza Armstrong. Mrs. Armstrong ad
hered to her recent denials that she had sold
her child to Mr. Stead or any one else for
immoral purposes. The caunsel for the
defense then asked a few questions tending
to prove that the selling o€ the child was
not known to the father, and that witness
kept the matter a secret from her husband.
The case was adjourned until Monday.
The proceedings are dragging somewhat,
and public interest in the trial is subsiding,
pending the introduction of testimony for
the defense.
