The Austrian Government has
issued au order prohibiting poker-playing
within the domination. Thus is the
Berlin Treaty again defied. It was
distinctly stated, we believe, in that
document that the game of poker
sd on Id be protected by all the Powers
to the end of time. It was further de
creed in detail that a prince who did
not ante should be compelled to ab
dicate, that three kings beat anything
on the board, that bluffing was a fine
art and should be nourished as such,
that any diplomat Vaught with a flush
should fee considered unworthy of his
profession, that the Powers should
never play straights, that two knaves
always beat two queens, etc., etc.
And now Austria has thrown all these
able rulings to the winds and has ut
terly boycotted poker. We shall soon
hear from the astute European corres
pondents as to how this move will af
fect the status quo in Bulgaria.
iouisville, Ky., November 2. Soecial
Kvening fW special from Williamsburg
Kentucky, gives details of a horrible
trtgedy in Knox county. About a month
ago ihe. house of a farmer named I'oe was
burntd and the family oi six persons and
two young ladies, who wtr visiting the
house, perished in the Hames. Air. Poe
was absent at the time and it was supposed
at the time, that the whole atlair was an
accident Near the Pue resideuce lives an
uumaxried couple, who lived together aa
man and wife and who had an illegitmate
child. The boy is ten years old. Poeshad
tefused to associate with this couple, nam
ed Concubine, because of their bad reputa
tion. The latter wasjhighly incensed at this
and threatened to get even. He selected a
night when Poe was away from home, went
to 1j is house and found the family asleep.
Concubine, with a razor, cat the throats of
all from ear to ear, piled the bodies in the
middle of the Ho"r and on top of them
several bedo, and theu set tire to all. Con
cubine recently gave his by a sevt-ro
whipping and the lad informed the author
ities. The couple were arrested an l are
now io the liarberviHe jail. There is
strong talk of lynching.
A TIMES SPEi IAL SAYS :
A report has reached Wiliioasburg, Ky ,
that the Poe family, thought to have been
destroyed by tire in Knox county a month
ago were in reality murlered by a neigh
bor named Concubine. The mother and
Hve children and two visiting young ladies
were found buried in the ashes oi the des
troyed hut, the story of the murder it told
aa follows, by the illegitimate son of Con
cubine, aged 10 years, whom the repute 1
father had threatened and made mad.
This boy says the man cut from ear to ear,
the throats of each of the eight persons
while they slept, that his mother then drag
ged the bodies to the middle of the room
and then set them on tire. They also tired
the house, took Home bed clothing and
other articles and departed. On the boys
statements arre-t and investigation fol
lowed and Poe's a. tides were found iu
the cellar of the suspected parties house.
They refuse to be interviewed and are now
in Barbourvill jail awaiting examination.
