JUMBO TWO-HORSE r GREAT NORTHERN AFFAIRS. Taylor, Tex., May 10. .receivers Bon ner and Eddy, of the International and Great North rr, accompanied hy Judge McCord, went south last night. Col. Eddy sta en that they were de-irous of waking some improvements on the line, and Judge McLord was desirous 01 makiug a tonr of the system before issuing the order. He also stated that the hearing of the question of juri.-diction hy the Supreme court would prob?bly be reached during thL month. In reference lo the New York telegram about W. S. Herndon and his alleged abil ity to prevent the Missouri Kansas & Tex as from securing the Inter national and Gieat Northern, his power to do so rsts in the action of Attor ney General Hogg seeking to enforce the btate law preventing the consolidation of two ioads. The state cour:s will doubtless sustain the attorney gene-al. The Inter national and Great Northern road is one of the most profitable in Texas, and with its connections forms a system that is worth owning. Jay Gould's judgment for over $500,000 has been recorded in several cunties, and so far he appears to have the advantage. Should the supreme court affirm the jur isdiction of Judge Williams in appointing J. K. Hearne receiver, it means a loss for Gould and a gain for the Missouri, Kan sas and iex:is. AUSTRALASIAS RAILWAYS. ine oriusn co'onies oi Australasia are better provided with railways in propor tion to their population than any country in the world, with the sole exception of the United States. A recently published report by Consul General Griffin places tne tota railway mileage in the seven col onies at the close of 1SS7 at 9305 mi'es. The progress made in the last sever teen years can be appreciated wh-n it is under stood that in 1870 there were only 943 miles of railway in all the colonies. .Railway building is active, 2092 miles being under construction at the elose of 1SS7. The mileage in operation in the different colo die in 1870 and in 1887, and the rmount under construction at the close of the lat ter year, compare s follows : Miles. MH-t.

Miss Kate Drexol, a 80,000,000 Heiress, Becomes a Sister of Mercy. Pittsburg, Pa., May 10. Miss Kate Drexel, the heiress worth $6,000,000, i in the convent of the Sisters of Mercy. When the alighted from the train yesterday she was driven quietly to the home of the Sis ters. The doors were opened, she entered and that is all that can be said abont Miss Drexel or her movements. Stories innumerable are being told and written of what Miss Drexel did and of the Ozirk, Mo., Miy 9. Lat night a rumor oi a knubber rescue plot reached Ozark through si;uie vague source and the sheriff summoned a number of extra guards and s ationed themjaround the ja:l. Myateriors strangers were reported to be in town and a very uneasy feeling took possession of some of the citizens of Ozark. There was no out ward sensation, such as prevailed here soon after the Edeus-Grcen murder, when the whole knobber orgnizaiion was supposed to be planning the rescue of Walker and his men from the authorities. Men in g'oups of three and four would quietly discuss the possi bility of an attempt to save the prisoners from the gallows, put nobody seemed to really believe that such a move was likely to be made. Sheriff Johnson would not admit that he had any serious apprehen sions of trouble, but said the situation jus tified some precaution. He thought beat to guard against the slightest possibilily of outside mterterance. The ability of the Ozark jail to resist the attack of a Knob ber rescue party was freely discussed, and the escape of John and Wiley Matthews the night oi the 28th of December: was re viewed in details as an evidence that the prisoners were net so secure as the people mm POWDER Absolutely Pure.

She has retired, as4 the veil which shields her cannot be p;erced by the eyes of the people of the world. There is nothing special, so far as the outside world knows, involved in the rt- o-ption of a candidate. It is safe to say that Miss Drexel to-day appeared with the other members oi the order in the been alive at this critical hour. There was no alarm during the night, however, and the guards who walked around the jail oecame weary and drowsy before daylight relieved them of their solemn duty.

They wear trains and a deep collar that entirely covers the breast, and small, close-fitting caps that come un der the chin. Unless at the end of the probationary period of six months Miss Drexel con cludes to renounce her intention and pro fession, one of the greatest heiresses in American will henceforth be "dead to the world," and the circles of Walnut street, rt-here the has been so familiar, will know her no more. No incident of the sort since the beautiful Miss McTavish, of Baltimore, entered a convent has caused so great a so cial sensation, as it was utterly unexpected and until now has been absolutely un known ou :ide of her family. The parting between Miss Kate Drexel and her sister w .s very sad. Mr. and Mrs. Morrell after their marriage started on their bridal tour, and up to the time they returned, a week or two ago, had travelled ten thousand miles. It was a part of the programme that they should on their re turn, go to Europe, joining Mrs. Moirill's uncle, A. J. Drexel, in his annual summer trip to Larlabad. Miss Lizzie .Drexel had the prisoners had the slightest hope of com mutation at 10 o clock this morning. About 8 o'clock Sherifl Johnson received a telegram from Jefierson City, which, by mistake, was read, ''Have decided to in terfere." At the same time, however, one of the Eald Knobber attorneys got a mes sage saying, UA11 must hang." The two telegrams being compared at once it be came evident that one was wrong, and that the governor had deciu .1 not to com iaue. The sheriffs telera. was sent back to the operator for correction, and the fol lowing returned for the true copy: "Have declined to inte-fere." This sealed the doom of the thirs knobbers, and the sheriff went at once to the jail and read the mes sage to the prisoners. The last hope now vanished, and th two Walkers and John Matthews saw the lone-dreaded scafiold aain rise before them in all its ghastly terror. Between the doomed men and death there now interposes no faint possi bility of escape. PAID THE PENALTY. Ozark Mo., May 10.

Something more than a local interest is attached to this act of Miss Drexel from the fact that she is one of the three sisters who inherit a fortune of about $17,000,000, which is said to have increased in ahnnt $21,000,000 since their father's death.
