a terrible blow in the face, knocking him
beak ward out of the door and onto the

the level of the diKflff!s head-struck the

perate character. He was placed in jail,
without bail, to await the result of How

Powdeyly in a Pet
Pittsburg, Sept. 4. An evening paper
says a New York telegram received in
Pittsburg to-day occasioned no little talk
among the Knights of Labor here. It is
stated that General Master -Vorkman Pow-
derly has notified the Knights of Labor
authorities that he will not accept another
term of office and that bis name is not to
be used at Richmond as he intends to leave
the order. The telegram further stated
that Powderly's declaration was occasioned
by his disgust over recent differences in the
order, and that the fact that his physical
condition demanded a rct. It was stated
that Thos. McGuire and Horon of district
49, New York, who have been considered
in opposition to Powderly, have declared
that neither of them would be a candidate
for the position. ':oniinent Knights of
Labor here say they know noth ng of Mr.

Fears for The Bermudas
Washington, Sept 4. The hydrographic
office has received a letter from Capt. Leo
Voegel of the steamer Citv of Palatka,
briefly describing the effects of the earth
quake at sea. He had just left Charleston
and was twelve miles off the harbor at
Port Royal in eight and a half fathoms
where he expereinced a terrible rumbling
sensation which lasted one and a half min
utes. Some anxiety was felt with regards
to the possible effects of the earthquake at
Bermudas, i he islands lie directly in what
is now supposed to be the path of the most
violent agitation and their physical features
are such as to warrant the fear that they
experienced a severe disaster and were per
haps annihilated.
The Strike Settled.
St. Louis, Sept 4 The strike of the
coal miners at Bevier, Mo., has been settled.
The men have agreed to go back to work

A Scientific View.
Charleston, S. C, Sept 4. Professof W.
T. McGee, of the United States geological
survey, went to Summerville on Friday to
investigate the immediate or remote causes
of the recent earthquake. He stopped at
Ten Mile Hill station around which the
earthquake was particularly active and
paid special attention to the matter which
was thrown up from the craters, which are
numerous through the belt of country ex
tending from a distance about forty-seven
miles and from Ten Mile Hill north and
south and likewise east and west
for an indefinite distancealong the sea coast
Prof. McGee collected specimens of the soil
and mud which had been thrown up and
samples of the waters which flowed from
the fissures, taking particular note of the
cavities onthe farm of Mr. Chan. Lee the
largest of which is at out nix een feet square
and sixteen feet deep. At Summerville Piof.
McGee continued his investigations and
talked freely with geutlemen there,
One of thesse gives the Aew and
Courier a sketch of Prof. McGee's
statements. Prof. McGee said that the orn
amental ork and ginger bread work in
Charleston was in many instances oat of
proportion to the size of the building and
these parts would be apt to fall and carry
away portions of the general structure. He
said that when he left Washington he
thought that he would have very little dif
ficulty in determining the approximate
course of the earthquake, but confessed to
having been much puzzled by the observa
tion. Contrary to expectations, he found
that the fissures were .not uniform in their
direction, some extended from north to
south, others fmm east to west and on this
accoun he would hesitate to give any sci
entific declaration. He did, however, give
the opinion that the shocks were the result
of local land slides. By the term local
he does not mean that the shakes
can be traced to any particular pi are at
Summerville, Charleston or elsewhere and
remarks that there was no connection be
tween the shakes and the suppressed vol
tanic action. His impression is that the
area covered by the land slide theory has
been from forty to one hundred miles
under the bed of the sea. He was couti
dent, morever, that tne worst was
passed. This statement however, was
made prior to the shock at 11
o'clock last night He left Summer
ville this evening for the phosphate district
where he will continue his observations.
Prof. McGees remarks have had an excel
lent effect L'p to yesterday about 1,000
people or one-third or the whole popula
tion had left Summerville and it is expect
ed that Prof McGees statement will stop
any further exodus. Mr. Simuel Ham
mond, who was reported as dangerously
injured, and dying is now doing well, Ml
leg, ' however, is fractured and he has
ynany severe contusions, iiie leeling is
nlecidedlv more cheerful and a better tone
naturally prevails in the community.
The workmen are at work upon the in
jured buildings putting them in order and
as much as possible is being done to pro
tect the interiors from the rains which are
expected. Another element which increas
es confidence is the organization to-day of
a strong relief committee which will take
entire charge of the provision
of food, clothing and quarters
as far as necessary for those
who have suffered from the earthquake. A
considerable number of tents have been
received from the government and others
are expected to-morrow. The orphan
house, alms houe and the catholic orphan
asylum have been provided with sufficient
shelter. An encampment for other refugees
in military style is now being formed on
the sou h battery. There will be an en
campment for colored refugees on Marion
Square.

A Race For Life.
Fans, 111-, Sept 4. An exciting shooting !
affair between Andy Johnson and Thomas
Scott, two well-known farmers living a few
miles south of here, occurred last evening,
which may result in the death of Scott
The alleged facts concerning the cases are
these: Scott has missed some calves from
his farm, and while huntiog.them learned
that Johnson had poscessic of them on his
farm a mile distant Scott, accompanied
by his ton and another boy, all on horse
back, rode upon Johnson's land looking
for the cattle. Johnson appeared on his
black stallion and claimed damages by
Scott's cattle. A dispute arose and the
men agreed to settle the'matteratthe house.
Both men rode rapidly, Johnson to get his
self-cocking revolver and Scott to escape.
Johnson jumped fences with bis steed, and
procuring his pistol met Scott near the
house. A- he turned to break for the road
a few yards distant, Johnson yelled, "I
you; what are you doing here ?" and rap
idly emptied his revolver, lodging three
balls in Scott's anatomy and two in the
horse. An old feud between the men is be
lt ind the tragedy, and as Scott refused to
prosecute by law, more trouble is antici
pated should he live.

sons of Hiram Howard living near Rome,
in i his conntv, about ten miles from here,
