Columbus, <)., Dec. 26.— The story of
an uprising amunz the convicts In the
Ohio penitenii ity, teleirraplmJ to many
papers througl out the country, is a
gross exaggeration of tacts. A piot
had been laid by three prisoners to
kill a guard who had incurred their
displeasure by reporting them for an
infraction of the rules, but uoueoi the
oiher prisoner* were aware of the plot.
When it is stated that there are over
2.0C0 prisoners ill the penitentiary the
absurdity of Hi reported uprising can
be better understood. Last Mon
day Guard J. S. Temple, of Colum

his pocket, and a tierce struggle
tor possession of the weapon ensued.
Guards Kelton and Butler and Sub
guard Miller rushed to Guard Temple's
assistance, and, by threatening to use
their canes, made the convicts desist.
As anon as he was tret. Temple, crazed
by the blow on his head, drew his

j Kequisition Papers From South
Carolina Defective.
Chicago, Dec. 26.—The A. S. Whit
man habeas corpus case was up again
today in Judge Dunn's court, but the
question as to whether Whitman is to
be sent to North Carolina on the. charge
of procuring money by false pretenses
or released, was still left undecided,
Judge Dunn did decide on the argu-
I ments which were heard last week, that
I the governor's warrant upon which his
I extradition is asked is not sufficient to
! hold him for the. reason that it does not
j -show that a crime was committed by the
j defendant in North Carolina.
The judge said lie. had carefully ex
amined the statutes of North Carolina,
and had found mat in that state, a man
might procure money by false pretenses
without committing an indictable of
fense. "All false pretenses aro not mi
i dictable there," said the court, "and the
warrant of the governor should set forth
specifically the manner in which tt:e
money in this case was procured. This
warrant does not."

London, Dec. '26.-Lord Randolph
Churchill had brief intervals of con

in her attention to him, rarely leaving
his bedside. There has been a con
stant succession of aristocratic callers
at the Churchill residence. No 50 (.Jros

has sent a telegram to Lady Randolph
Churchill expressing sympathy with
Lean kandoi.i'h ( hi kchilt,.
her. A bulletin issued at 9 o'clock this
evening says that the patient is rather
weaker. Lord Osborue, who left the
Churchill residence just before this dis
patch was sent, said that the condition
of the sick man was so bad that it could
hardly be worse.
Dr. Keith, one of the physicians in at
tendance on Lord Randolph Churchill,
informed the Associaved Press Rt 10
o'clock tonight that the weakness of the
patient was slowly Increasing; that
there was absolutely no hope, and that
nothing could save the sufferer. His
death is merely a question of a short
time. A sad feature was that every ef
fort made in behalf of the patient only
tended to prolong such agony as he is
now capable ot feeling.

thickly. The North and East rivers
were wrapped in a cloud of the driving
snow, and objects were invisible
on the water at a distance of not more
than a few yards. The various ferry
boats had considerable -<iiilieii.tv in
making their piers, but no casualties
are reported. From an early hour the
snow ploughs on the Broadway and
Third avenue cable lines were at work,
and kept the tracks fairly clear. The
traffic on Broadway was not interrupted,
but the drifts caused a block on the
Third avenue road. About 11 o:c1ock
the fall of snow increased, and the cold
became more Intense. The shipping in
the East river received the brunt of the
storm, but up to midnight no accidents

in velocity, and brought the snow with
it. At 9p.m. it was swirling down the
narrows with a speed of sixty miles an

clouds. It became so dense that the

Kxpet ts Find Accounts in a Had-
Ijr Muddied Condi
Bkookly.v, Dec. 26.— The World to
morrow will say: Charles Duttou and
John K. Sparrow, expert accountants,
have b*en spending a month or so go
ing over the books and papers in
County Treasurer Adams' office. Their
work is finished, and their re
port has been submitted to the
supervisor's committee, aud will be pre
sented to the board of county commis
sioners today. This report shows a to
tal shortage of $89,649. Of this $65,540
was found in the accounts at
the treasurer. A discrepancy of $24,
--100 is shown by the total amounts drawn
by Cashier Lawrence J. Tenney tor tie
payment of junes.aud the total amounts
actually paid jurors between the years
18S4 and 1893. This discrepancy is
against Termey.
The discrepancy in his accounts be
gins, according to the experts, in 1884.
They vary from $2,000 to fi.OLHJ for
each year during a period of nine
years. One of the supervisors,
in speaking of the Termy short
age last night, said: "It is possible to
account for the shortages in the treas
urer's accounts on the. thtory of care
lessness and miserable methods, but
tor shortage in the iuroi's ac
counts there is no explanation,
except the worst." The shortages in
Treasurer Adams' accounts bmnui the
year in which he went luto office and
continued up to a year or so ago.
Auanis is uudei a heavy bonu that will
require him to make the shortage good.
The experts have also discovered that
a systematic method had been used to
cover up the shortages in year by year
whiki tne supei visional committee was
■taking its examination.
A plan was to draw a check for $12,
--000 or £25.000 at th« «nd of the mouth
and deposit to one bank day in another.
An effect of this was to net a
credit from each bank. Before the
check would get around for col
lection to the bank upon which the
draft was made the acouut for the first
of the month would Have been made
out. The supervisional committee
never thought of questioning the big
balances shown in tnis way.
