A Dubuque Horror.
Dubuque, 10.. Oct. 20.—Mrs. Cather
ine Beck, aged eighty-two, and her
daughter. Mrs. Eliza Olinger, a widow,
aged fifty-six, lived alone in the upper
part of the city. Their neighbors wore
aroused about 5 o'clock by cries of
"murder" proceeding from their resi
dence. Hastening there, both women
were found lying on the floor in a dying
condition. Their heads were frightfully
gashed and beaten. Evidences of a fear
ful struggle were visible. Mrs. Oblig
or's skull was fractured, and the flesh
on her face was literally cut into strips
by some sharp instrument: She is still
unconscious, and will not live through
the day. Mrs. Beck is able to speak a
few* words, but can give very little in
formation regarding the assault, She is
so badly injured that her recovery is
impossible. Suspicion seems to rest on
a son-in-law of Mrs. Beck, a dissolute
follow named Peter Marsh. It is said
he tried to obtain some money from Mrs.
Beck, and. being refused, threatened
her with injury.

Winnipeg, Man.. Oct. 20.—Chief Jus

was the refusal of the heart to operate,
which was superinduced by kidney com
plaint. This was aggravated by sitting
two weeks constantly upon the Brown

gap in the early history of Canada be
fore the confederation, being a member
of the celebrated Brown-Dorieu govern

afterwards speaker of the house of com

—Round Up of Sport
President Spalding, of the Chicago
National League club, sat in the grand
stand yesterday and saw his young ath
letes take their second drubbing at the
hands of the St. Paul Northwestern
leaguers. It was a cold dayfrigid, in
fact, for the visitors— the 000 spec
tators had to keep up a vigorous stamp
ing to prevent their blood from congeal
ing. Anson put in Baldwin to pitch,
with Flint to catch him, and covered the
held with his best men in the hope
of wiping out the defeat of Tuesday,
but his success was poor and he left the
field in disgust before the ninth inning
was finished. The contest was close
throughout, an#* the fielding on both
sides was a mixture of brilliant and
"rocky" playing. Neither team did
much with the willow, and only one of
the eleven runs was earned. Duryea's
pitching was superb at times. In the
third inning he fanned out two men and
in the seventh struck out two
and assisted in retiring the
third. Earle's catching and throw
ing wore done to the queen's taste. Four
Chicago sprinters undertook to steal
second, but the ball boat every one of
them to the base. Shafer and Pickett
completed a neat double play, and fine
fly catches were made by Wilmot ami
Ryan. For three innings neither team
got a man across the plate. In the
fourth Wilmot made a line hit to center,
stole second, wont to third on Ryan's
error, and scored on Crooks' out. In the
last half of the inning Tebeau made
A PRETTY HIT
to left and Anson got a base on balls.
Pfeffer hit to Duryea, who caught Te
beau at third. Burns hit to Pickett,
who ran to second in time to catch
Pfeffer, but threw wild to first, Anson
scoring and Burns running on to sec
ond. Williamson's hit to right brought
Burns home. St. Paul scored four
times in the fifth on a hit, two bases on
balls, four steals, a wild pitch and three
fielding errors. In the last half of the
inning Chicago scored twice on a
hit. three fielding errors and
three wild pitches. The score stood sto
4in St. Paul's favor until the eighth
inning, when Chicago tied the game by
earning the only run of the game. Ryan
and Tebeau made hits and the former
crossed the plate on Anson's long fly to
center. Pfeffer also made a hit, but he
and Tebeau were both cut off trying to
steal second. In the first half of the
ninth, after Crooks had gone
out from pitcher to first, Pick
ett took first and second
on a grounder which went through both
Williamson and Burns, and third on a
passed ball. The inlielders then played
well in towards the plate, as is their
wont, to head off the runner from third.
Anson was just inside the right foul
line twenty feet from his base. Duryea
took up a bat and fanned the October
breezes four times, but Flint dropped
the ball. He picked it up with
alacrity anil threw it to Anson and
Pickett darted for home. Anson, with
out attempting to touch Duryea, re
turned the ball to Flint at once, but
threw so high that when the latter
swung around Pickett had crossed the
plate. Anson came up kicking to have
one of the men called out and Duryea
ran around to third. Umpire Kreig re
fused to call either of the men out, and
Anson called his men off the ground In
a huff. The score follows:

of heart disease. When the announce

son, S. R. Montgomery, secretary of the

they were not the only mourners over

Hart's New Scheme.
Louisville, Ky., Oct. Gates A.
Hart, ex-manager of the Louisville Base
Ball club and now in charge of the Mil

It developed to-day that Hart Is here to
buy the Louisville Association club's
franchise and players. The Louisville
club's directors seem to be agreeable
and the only question is the one of price.
Hart's plan is to transfer the Louisville
franchise to his Milwaukee club and
peddle out the surplus players. He will
keep Ramsey. Hooker, Kerins, Cook,
Collins, White. Mack and Werriek. This
would give him a very strong team for
the association, as the present Mil
waukee club has some, good men. Hart
is well backed financially and there is
strong probability of the deal.

By Cable to the Globe.
London, Oct. 20.—The Juge d' In
struction having carefully considered
.the papers in the case of Gen. Caffarel
and found the proof of his guilt insuffi
■ cient to warrant the general's prosecu
tion declined to pursue the matter
further. Nevertheless the military
court of inquiry decided that the late
chief of the war department staff had
been guilty of dishonorable conduct,
and consequently recommended his dis
j missal from the army. ; Added to this
humiliation will doubtless come his loss
of the cross of the Legion of Honor won
by bravery and meritorious deeds in the
war of the Crimea, and a large
number of civil suits instituted
by his creditors. Gen. Caffarel is,
as everybody knows, up to his eyes in
debt, and "his enemies and those who
seek to uphold themselves by dragging
him down will undoubtedly incite the
persons holding his obligations to
press their claims with the utmost
vigor and.remorselessness. This line
of attack on a man-who has hitherto
been held in high esteem for his deeds
of valor in the held may, however, if
pursued too far, react in his favor. A
ereat many persons are of the opinion—
and the conviction is rapidly-growing
Caffarel's punishment is severely un
just, and the belief prevailing all civil
ized countries, that a"hian ought not to
be condemned unheard, is fast becom
ing sufficiently strong in Paris to result
in a general demand that Caffarel be
given the fullest possible opportunity
not only to clear himself, but
to FASTEN THE GUILT
attaching to the traffic in decorations on
the .parties most culpable, be they high
or low in social or official circles.. It is
quite clear to every one that Gen. Caf

j GLADSTONE AT DERBY.
He Arouses the Enthusiasm of a
' Large Audience on the Irish
i Question. ■ '/_***. Af.
'.-j London, Oct. 20.— Gladstone ad
dressed an audience of 4,000 persons in
the drill hall at Derby. He was sup
ported by Sir William Vernon Harcourt
and. Baron Wolverton. The crowd
climbed to the gardens of the roof.
When the organist played "God Bless
the Prince of Wales,'' hisses were heard
•from some parts of the hall. The air of
the song "Joey and Jesse," which refers
to Messrs. Joseph Chamberlain and
-Jesse Col lings, was also played and
loudly groaned. Mr. Gladstone said
their opponents were growing weaker,
while their own forces were becoming
stronger." He was accused of. co-oper
ating with those whom he once de
nounced as marching with rapine and
murder toward the disintegration of the
empire. AH the objections then pre
sented had passed away. He did
not;. Relieve that * any Irish
member of parliament now con
templated., or . desired , the dis
memberment -oorf r the empire. They
-wanted a union .of, hearts and not a
union on parchment and paper. Why,
he asked, should Ife be accused o. gross
inconsistency because he allied himself
with Mr. Parncll and the Irish party,
Who were acting on lines of moderation
which assuredly would in the end ■' se
cure home rule.- He flatly denied that
His course was inconsistent. When told
x. ° ;i!£i l~^'
that he had passed coercion measures
he could only say that a measure such
as was contested at the . session of
parliament had never been passed while
he was in office. The measure was not
aimed at the suppression of crime so
much as at the liberty of the press and
the right of public meeting, as its appli
cation proved. Lawful meetings had
been prevented. , The act had been used
in such a manner as to painfully and
flagrantly show that its provivisions
were different from those of any act
previously passed. It was more subtle
and piercing and more fatal to the
liberty pf the people than any bill hith
erto passed. It was enrolled as a per
manent proof of legislation as much as
the Reform bill and the Bill of Rights.
Coercion had utterly failed. Instead of
trying to drive the disease inward, he
believed the Liberals had found a plan
which would by their home rule scheme
solve the long formidable problem. It
was said that Ireland consisted of two
nations. Italy was once in the same
condition, but the parties coalesced and
formed one united kingdom. Why
should not Ireland do the same? Mr.
Gladstone said he believed the people of
Ulster were simply laboring under a
misunderstanding. They doubtless
wanted the assurance that the connec
tion between Ireland and England
would be maintained. It was an utter
mistake to suppose that any action of
the Liberal party would have any other
result. He believed that a satisfactory
arrangement could be made by which
Ulster would be united with the rest of
Ireland, and that in the end all would
give willing obedience to the queen. On
leaving the hall Mr. Gladstone was

New York, Oct. 20.A London dis
patch says: I have reason to believe,
writes the London correspondent of the
Leeds Mercury, that the American gov
ernment has conveyed an intimation to
Lord Salisbury that the bitterness of
Mr. Chamberlain's anti-Irish speeches
will not facilitate the settlement of the
fisheries question. President Cleveland
and his colleagues are afraid that Mr.
Chamberlain may be.met by hostile
demonstrations in the United States,
and if any such incidents- occurred it
would not only lie awkward for the
English commissioner, but would also
tend to prejudice any agreement that
might bo arrived at. If Mr. Chamber
lain and the American government
come to an agreement there is consider
able risk that the senate, under the in
fluence of the Irish vote, may be in
duced to veto it. No treaty with the
United States is valid unless formally
approved by the senate, and the Ameri
can government is afraid that Mr.
Chamberlain's language will materially
affect the action of that body in regard

THE RAILWAY WORLD
Mr. Stickney Makes a Ten-
Strike in the City of
President Potter, of the Union
Pacific, Goes West to
Meeting of Northern Pacific
Officials, Which Develops
The Red River Valley Road
Now Almost Sure of
There was great rejoicing at the Min
nesota & Northwestern headquarters in
this city yesterday, caused by the in
formation received of the doings of Mr.
Stickney, the president of the Minne
sota & Northwestern, in Chicago. Some
time ago the Globe announced that
Mr. Stickney had purchased an immense
tract of land at L yons. a little suburb of
Chicago. For something more than a
week he has been in Chicago negotiat
ing to have the big packers join him in
his Lyons venture, and unless all the
plans are changed before the week is
out Armour & C 0.,, the Allerton
Packing company, the Swifts and
Batsford, of the Chicago Pack
ing & Provision company, will
sign contracts pledging themselves to
leave the old union stock yards and
move their business to the new yards,
which will be opened at Lyons. It may
also be stated that the Milwaukee & St.
Paul, the Northwestern, the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy, the Illinois Cen
tral, the Alton and the other great roads
have signed contracts taking interests
in the new yards. This, of course, means
the abandonment of the old union stock
yards. The cattle and hogs and the
commission men will have to follow
Armour, Swift and the other packers.
When Mr. Stickney bought the tract of
land referred to at Lyons, and an
nounced that he proposed to establish a
stock yards and transfer, the scheme -
• ..: WAS LAUGHED AT.
He kept right on though, and after he
got his land bought and his corporation
going, Stickney set at work on the pack
ers and, referring to the tract of land he
had secured, said to them: "If they
would move there with their packing
houses the property becomes worth at
least $10,000,000. If you will go with me
we will issue bonds for $10,000,000, build
you new houses larger and better than
those at the Union stock yards and we
will also give you an interest in the
corporation." Mr. Stickney then vis
ited the great Western roads and told
them that they were compelled to pay
the Union stock yards. $2 per ear for
switching and promised that .if they
would sign a contract to go to the new
yards at Lyons, he would not charge
them anything for switching and would
feed the cattle for less than the old com
pany charged.. This caused all the
packers to join the arrangement. The
railroads accepted the proposition as
readily as the packers. Instead of pay
ing from $4,000 to $5,000 per day for
switching charges, they will get it done
at Lyons for about 35 cents per car.
GONE TO HELENA.
What President Potter, of the
Union Pacific, May do on Rates.
Vice President Potter, of the "Union
Pacific, has gone west to look over the
ground at Butte City, and Helna, Mont.,
and see what can be done to anticipate
and provide against the advent of the
Manitoba extension, and consequent
extra compensation. It is reported that
his efforts to persuade the Manitoba
people to hold to tariff on the opening
of their new Montana line, was not en
tirely successful. It is well known to
those who are familiar with railroad
affairs in St. Paul that the Manitoba,
several weeks ago, had its tariff of rates
all completed, and further, that these
rates constituted a very decided cut.
It is also known that President Potter
was here a week or more ago, laboring
with the Manitoba people, to induce
them not to make a cut. All he could
get was an agreement to make a tem
porary delay. It is now asserted that,
inasmuch as he could do nothing with
the Manitoba, he may, after looking
over the situation.teonclude to anicipate
the Inevitable and put in a new tariff on
Union Pacific account, before the Mani
toba makes its connection with Helena.
The Red River Line.
Special to the Globe.
. Winnipeg, Man., Oct. 20.—A dispatch
from Norquay, now in Montreal, to
members of the government here, an
nounces that he has succeeded in ef
fecting an arrangement by which the
Red River Valley road will he com
pleted this year. Messrs. Norquay and
Hamilton, as was well known, went
East to complete negotiations with their
principals, who are no less than Messrs.
Mann and Holt, well known railway
contractors. When Norquay failed in
his efforts to raise $1,000,000, he opened
correspondence with Holt to see what
could be done. The result was that in
a very brief time Holt, who has strong
financial backing in New* York, formed
a syndicate of ten, each subscribing
$25,000. They will take provincial
bonds, which will be indorsed by
Messrs. Mann and Holt. With this
amount, and the $300,000 to be supplied
by the city of Winnipeg, the contractors
will have enough to complete the work
this year. Messrs. Mann and Holt ex
pressed perfect confidence in the bonds
and were quite ready to accept them for
Eayment of the work performed. As
efore stated, Mr. Norquay went East to
conclude negotiations, which had
been brought as far as possible
by means of correspondence. It
is understood that all amounts
due on the rails have been paid, and
that they will move forward forthwith.
Great satisfaction is felt over the ar
rangement being made with Holt, as he
is known to be a strong friend of the
province, having large interests here;
besides that he does not fear an injunc
tion, for he was specially employed on
the Credit Valley road in Toronto to
fight injunctions, a position which he
filled with credit to himself and profit
to| the company. Hon. Mr. Lariveere
sent for Messrs. J. ' H. Ashdoun and
Aid. A. Mac Donald this afternoon and
informed them that he would be pre
pared by next Monday to give them
absolute assurances that the road would
be built this year, and requesting that
they be • ready with the money prom
ised. ' It is understood that Mr. • Holt
will be here in a*' few days, and that
work will be immediately commenced.
Mr. Holt has made such arrangements
with the Northern Pacific that lie will
be able to get all'-the material required
for the completion of the road should

The Northern Pacific.
New York, Oct. 20.—Tlie regular
monthly meeting of the Northern Pa
cific directors was held to-day and con
tinued in session over seven hours. The
only information that the officials would
give out after the adjournment was that
they had passed a resolution to give no
information to the public. President
Harris when pressed said that they had
taken important action on the different
matters pending. From other sources
it is learned that the committee ap
pointed to confer with the Union Pa
cific officials reported in favor of a divi
sion of territory at the mouth of the
Columbia ri\er and the taking of the
branch lines north of that point. They
also reported that they believed the
Northern Pacific should join in the lease
of the Oregon Navigation. One of the
directors who .would talk a little said
that the action taken was favorable to
all three companies interested and he
stated that some important announce
ments would be made to-morrow.
Consolidation of Railroads.
St. Louis, Oct. 20.—The stockholders
of the St. Louis, Arkansas & Texas rail
road, at their meeting held to-day, per
fected arrangements for the consolida
tion of the Little Rock and Shreveport
branches, organized respectively as the
Little Rock & Eastern and the Arkan
sas & Southern railroads, with the main
line. This project will increase the
security value of the branches to a uni
form character with those of the parent
road, and facilitate the raising of in
creased capital to carry out other ad
ditional and vital extensions so long
needed and held in contemplation. Vice
President Kerense believes that the
mortgage bonds of the branch roads, en
hanced in value by the consolidation,
could readily be placed on the London
market. If this cannot be accomplished,
a new company will be organized to
carry out the needed extensions of the
Chips From the Ties.
The October earnings of the Northern Pa

That is the Way People are Flock
ing Into Fargo After Indemnity
Special to the Globe.
Fargo, Dak., Oct. 20.—The trains
from the north and south to-day and to
night have been as crowded as yester
day with the squatters coming in" to
file to-morrow on the indemnity lands.
Over one hundred came in from Lisbon
to-night. ; Most of them are Norwegians
and Swedes, not very- familiar with the
laws, and enthusiastic in the faith that
they are about to secure some of the
finest farms in Dakota in a fine state "of'
cultivation, and the entire force of land
attorneys are actively aiding them to
get rid of their $25 for making out pa
pers. It is estimated that there are
nearly 2,000 of them in town, and those
who have their papers made out are
already moving to the outer doors of
the land office, with a supply of pro
visions for a siege. It will be a long
siege for some of them,as they will have
to form in line and take their turns.
The office opens at 9 a. m. and closes at
4, and it is estimated that it will take ten
minutes for each claimant, which will
allow hardly fifty out of the 2,000 or so to
get in to-morrow. There are several aged
ladies among the land seekers. There
is a good deal of excitement over the
matter and the town is thronged. About
half of those filing have first to take
out citizens' papers. It is stated that
there are 4,325 quarter sections open to
settlement in this land district, and
squatters are the most of them. They
will, it is figured, leave from $75,000 up
ward in Fargo before those filing, for
which Fargo will be thankful.
