S-.iil H) Wl $4\ g|j I K 1 TRUE OR FALSE? fM5j0rt that a Prominent New Yorker Has "Sloped." 4£)d to He mixed ITp with Dlckin •oh of the IVall Street Bank— 1Ue Story Positively Denied. NEW YORK, Aug. 25.—Will J. Hutchinson, better khown to Wall street as "Bill Hutch inson," and vrho was set down as a million aire, has, it is said, run a way. It is be lieved that he was connected witii Dickinson in the looting of the Wall street bank. Hutchinson was a member of the old con cern of Kennedy, Hutchinson (t Co., the largest and richest brokerage concern in all the stteet. It ran the famous St. Joe -corner" for the millionaire Duff and other rich Bostonian^, and out of that ^corner" grow tlu gigantic scandal which resulted in Hutchinson's expulsion from the stock exchange. Duff was himself ruined, and others of the clique less strong than Duff were altogether ruined. At the deathbed of one of these a most dramatic scene occurred: "Rising on his bed in a frenzy, he exclaimed, in a voice that will never be forgotten by those who heard it: ''God d—n Bill Hutchin son." In his Inanipulation of that corner, Hutch inson robbed his customers. The investiga tion brought this out. When they bought stock he sold it to them. While they were growing poor he was taking their money. He was thrown out of the stock exchange, and a long litigation followed his at tempt to get back. Although Hutchinson was covered with disgrace, and although the concern of Kennedy & Co., in which he was a special partner, was disrupted, his partners refusing longer to have connection with him, he came out of the affair a millionaire. He afterward undertook the supervision of cer tain speculations for the Vanderbilts. It was presumed at the time that he was acting for W. H. Vanderbilt, but it was later concluded that he represented merely the younger Vanderbilts. It turns out that the curse of the deceased operator whom Bill Hutchinson ruined has overtaken the man it was intended for. It has all along been sup posed since the failure of the Wall Street bank and Dickinson's disappearance that Hutchison was involved. LATER—THE STORY DENIED. NEW YORK, Aug. 25.—The story that Director Hutchinson, of the Wall Street bank, has disappeared, is pronounced absurd By his friends. A telegram from the White mountains, where he now is, says: '"Will re turn Monday or Tuesday." He has settled most of his loans, and his friends say an amicable agreement regarding the remainder will probably be made. He has $790,000 in unincumbered real estate. MADE A CLEAN SWEEP. Said to Have Cleaned the Board—The Victims. ALBIOX, N. Y., Aug. 25.—A. S. Warner's defalcation and flight continues the sensa tion. His wife told a friend that she is left nearly penniless, and those of the Burrows family whose income was derived from the estate also fear they will be left without a dollar. They are as follows: Louisa, widow of RosTVell S. her son, W. K., and her daughter, Ida Warwick Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of S. Burrows Jeannette Bur rows, his daughter-in-law her daughter, Mrs. Smith, ar.d sons Roswell and Albert Lorenzo Burrows is wealthy and assures the depositors that they will receive all that is due them. His son George L., a banker of Saginaw, is in New York city tracing the missing securities. All sympathy for Warner is now transferred to his family, and his crime is universally de nounced. The strong box of the bank's safe has not yet been opened, but there is no hope of find ing anything therein. In the words of a stockholder, "Warner has without doubt made a clean sweep." Tea iu a Stetv. NfiW YORK, Aug. IO. -^'jThe tea trade, is in a state of apprehension.'' said all old im porter in Front street. "If France fully, de clares war against China the price of teas, wfllfs,- and other Chinese goods will materially advance. That the'&hi&eSte themselves be lieve there will be a war is shown by the re cent transfer of Chinese vessels to Russell'fit Cor, of 60 Vfall" street. This is the heaviest purchase, ever knovfrn in this Jirie. It incluclSd ^thirty-three steam 8Mip3, varying Between 000 and |*W)0 tons burden. The' shjps were built in America and w&Ve sold to the Chinese einglv. and now have been transferred to the American flags mostlpro^ably on account of the danger of .war. As the veSBels of a neutral nation th'ey will be exempt from seizure." A representative of-Russeil & Co. admitted that the vessels spoken of ahove have been transferred to the Atnerican flag, but declined to give any further information. Hydrophobia on the Train* OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 25.—As the overland tfain stopped at Papillion, a town near here, Erasmus Martinsen, a young Swede, was taken off and turned over to the authori ties. He was wrapped from head to foot in strong cords and -writhing and scream ing in a manner closely resembling liydrophobia. The malady attacked him at Fremont early in the morning. He was brought to Papillon by a brother to be cared for by friends there. The passengers on the train had a hard time securing hixo, and during the struggle he bit a large piece of akin from his brother's hand. It is feared bis brother will also be stricken with the dread malady. Martinsen was bitten by a vicious dog four years ago. It is thought bis sufferings resulted from that bite. Big Robbery of Austrian Bonds* NEW YORK, Aug. 25.—The following cable gram was received at the German consulate In this city from Frankfort on the Main, dated Aug. 23: "A great theft of valuable Austrian government bonds has taken place. A list of the securities is on the way to you. Have it posted on the exchange^." This was signed by Rumpf, president of the board of police. The consulate officials have no further in formation on the matter, nor have bankers who make a specialty of'continental securities any information as to the manner and •mount of the robbery. 8CHLEY CONTINUES INCREDULOUS. The Bodies of the Arctic Dead Used for Shrimp Bait, Not Eaten. NEW YOBK, Aug. 25.—Curiosity has been greatly aroused to know what is likely to be revealed in the forthcoming report of Com mander Schley, of the expedition which found Greely. A reporter interviewed the obmmander: "What is yoGr- impression about the re moval of the flesh from the bodies, and the Supposed cannibalism?' "l am positively of the opinion that it was remoted simpjy for-the purpose of catfching ton rimps. My strpnges reason for believing iat there was no cannib&lism is the condi in i^hich I found the body of private f5n?Uer. He was but a short time dead and Ijadr'beeii quite healthy. They were in a starv ing condition and had consumed the last of their food. If they had been accustomed to eat human flesh I think they would have cettainly seized upon Snyder in their then condition. The other bodies that were whole Were Lieut. Lockwood, Sergt. Linn, Israel fjfoss, and the Esquimaux Christiansen." "Don't you think the fact that the more fleshy parte were removed would indicate cannibalism?" "No I draw the very opposite conclusion from that fact. I think that only indicated they selected the portions that made the best bnit for the 6hrimps. There is one thing, bowever, that I am certain of, that is that if there was cannibalism, and Greely knows ft, he will state so in his report in the most •traightforward manner. You may rely upon it, there need be no hedging against that." will Exhume the Remains. NEW Y0p.1t, Aug. 25.—Coroner Robinson. Of Long Island City, has received from Miss Dora Buck, sister of Private Henry of the Greely expedition, a letter authorizing him to disintor and examine the remains of her brother. Miss Buck telegraphd to that ef fect to the coroner a week ago, but he de cided befor® taking any action in the matter to wait until he received a letter from her making known her wishes more explicitly. Coroner Robinson will at once proceed to ex ae the remains. "t«0ONB !TKB098I» .!• HotV a Georgia Negro Killed Hli wife and Confbssed the Crime. Coitfte^Cs, Ga., Aug. 25.—A wife mur der with totalis of tho most shocking nature is reported from Harris county, which is gaining unenviable notoriety for deeds of violence. In Apple valley there lived a colored man named Sydney Hall and his wife, a woman considerably his junior. Ho had been jealous of hor for some time, and so embittered her life that uo.„ipvo was'iost between them. On sevfiftU occas ions, Hall claims, his wife put poison in his tea, and he lived in constant dread of his life. When, Friday evening, Hall went to his em ployer, Judge Anderson, and told him that "de ole woman would bodder him no more now," the judge had 110 conception of the terrible deed which had been committed. went with Hall to his cabin, and- there on the bed lay the body of the dead woman,vher head having rolled off on the floor, wtiifih was covered with blood. "I done it,. boss," said Hall, without a quiver. "She woh't bodder us no moro now." The murderer then gave a circumstantial account of how he killed her. Two weeks before, he said, biB wife mado her last attempt to poison him. He made her drink some of thfc tea, whi6h .sickenqd her consid erably. Friday afternoon fie chided her with some new evidences of infidelity, to which her only, response wag that he would get a good dose of tea when he was not think ihg about it, She then lay down for an evening nap. Hall says he sat there until she was fast asleep, and in thinking over his misfortune he felt almost like killing himself. Then came tfee suggestion: "Why not kill her," and he"obeyed it. He declared solemnly that he fought for ^a long time with himself ag&inst'the inclination before he succumbed to'it The murderer is in jail, and lynching is freely lalked of. Neuroiubnrg's Faithful Dog. LANCASTER, Wis., Aug. 25.—George Neu romburg, who murdered his wife Thursday, was found by neighbors Friday morning hanging from the limb of a tree dead. A savage dog lay beneath the swinging corpse and kept everybody at a distance until a late hour at night, when the animal was shot. Neuromburg has long been noted for his unmerciful treatment of his family. It is claimed he caused his first •wife's death some five years ago. The woman murdered was his second wife, and was but 23 years old, while he was 50. He has for some time been jealous of her and brutal in his conduct, and as a result she left him a week ago. Thursday evening she returned to procure some clothing, and was shot three time by her husband, and while still unconscious, but dying, he with a hatchet, crushed in her skull, bespattering the walls with her blood and brains. By this time neighbors, who had been notified by the children, began to approach, and Netyemhurg, seeing then?, took a rope and hied hixjjself to the woods, Wheft he hanged himself. The Presldent*Kmers. CINCINNATI, Aug. 25.—"Gath" in his dis patch to The Enquirer, says: Mr. Cleveland in the presidential chair would become noth ing whatever but the exponent of the Demo cratic party. He would be compelled to turn out the Republican cranks in the first three months, and be guided by the Democratic senators and congress men. No president has ever amounted to any thing who flew in the face of his party and tried to be both the party and the presi dent. There exists in our country a set of men who never admire the president of the United States until he has quarreled with his party. They assist to destroy the poor man, and coolly dropjhimjafter they have destroyed him. Yet the next president comes in and they hail his fight with his party. In a few years there is nothing left but the dismal record of a broken-down administration, and probably a triumphant party'electing another favorite on its ruins.

How a Valiant Champion WU Con quered by Cupid. ., Conrad Tracy rushed into tho oflico of his friond, Tim Oliver, one morning, and, finding that gentleman alone, threw himself in a lounging chair in all tho abandon of grief. "What is tho matter nowP" said Tim, as ho took liis friond's hand in his. "I am tho most wretchod man in the world, Tim! What a terrible misfor tune it is to bo poor!" ••Poor? If I nad an income equal to yours I would throw asido all these musty law hooks, lock my oiliee door, and never set foot within its precincts again. I suppose that girl Hattie Mar tial has beon playing tho mischief with you once more." *'Sho has refused me—absolutely re fused to bo my wifo, aftor all these months of encouragomont. But it is not her fault. She loves mo devotedly, I know, which makes it all tho worse to bear. Her uncle, upon whom she is dependent, says she has an allowanco of $800 a year for her personal expen ses, a carriage at hor command, and a E0 alatial mansion to dwell in, and that never will consent to her marriage with a man who cannot support her in the samo style. It is cruel, cruel! And to think how tho dear girl loves me!" ••Hattio is fooling you, Con. She is a born jilt, and is only anxious to be rid of you that sho may spin a web for another." •'But she kissed me when we parted, and promised eternal fidelity! Tears were in her eyes—" •'Tears? And did you bolieve in them? Why, Con, a woman's tears are her artillery they come at her slightest summons. Sho can weep floods of them and never feel a heart pang. I am a skeptic on the subject of woman's tears!" "And yet you were taken aback when Milly Norton's eyes were full of them at tho theater the other night!" •'Well, yes I'll confess to that. I was afraid she would go off into a fit of hysteria, as she does sometimes, and I am morbidly sensitive about a scene but as to feeling pity for her—" Words failed Tim with which to express his contempt. He placed a cigar between his lips and leaned back in his chair with a look of intense disdain upon his countenance. Conrad Tracy was a good fellow, ex ceedingly handsome, well educated and possessed of a neat little income of $2,000 a year. If ho had a fault it was his areat susceptibility to women's charms. He was always in love, ready to commit suicide for his reigning di vinity—until he saw a face that was fairer. Thus it was in the present in stance. A new star arose in the hori zon of Belleville, a bright, particular star, whose confiscations dazzled tho eyes of all the young men in its vicini ty, and while a quietus for the broken heart caused by Miss Hattie's deser tion still stood on a little shelf in Con Tracy's djessing room in the shape of a dose of poison, he was kneeling at the feet of this new enchantress. She was lovely, this Miss Lucille Cameron, and looked for all the world like a Gainsborough picture. All the fer, entlemen of the place paid court to but their attentions, after at first being graciously received, were coldly discouraged, and it was not long be fore the fair Lucille had gained the reputation of being the most arrant coquette who had ever deigned to visit Belleville. Conrad Tracy was again in trouble, and a second time sought consolation from his friend Tim. "I am more wretched than ever," he said. "Miss Cameron has showered favors upon me I have dreamed of no one but her. She accompanied me to the theaters, permitted me to lead the german with her, and smiled upon me when I told her of my love. Last night, when I asked her to igarry me, she pulled my boquet to pieces, and, with a sneer that ill became her handsome face, told me my income was not sufficient to supply her wardrobe, and that al though she liked me very much, I must never speak to her on the subject again." Tim pitied his friend this time, when he saw how hard he had been hit, and determined in his heart to avenge him. He would seek Miss Cameron's ac quaintance and gain her affections. He had full confidence in his ability to win his way to the lady's heart, and he would leave no strategem untried to do so. Then he would reproach her with her perfidy to his friend, and leave her. A charity ball was to be given that very evening, in which all the elite of the town were deeply interested. There he would meet the beautiful Lucille and begin his work at once. Tim procured a ticket and dressed himself for conquest. He was very at tractive when he chose to use his pow ers of fascination, and throughout the crowded rooms there was no one to compare with him in manly grace and urbanity. It was seldom that Tim was seen at an evening entertainment, and his advent was hailed with joy by all his acquaintances. The excitement produced by his appearance soon drew the attention of Miss Cameron, and, at her request, he was brought wilhin the charmed circle of her coterie. His ex ertions to please her were a grand suc cess. They were partners in the dance, they promenaded together. He accompanied hor to the supper table. In fact he was by her side the whole evening and, at the close of the enter tainment, escorted her to her carriage. They parted with a warm pressure of the hand, and an understanding that thev were to see each other the next day. Tim was well pleased with the im pression he had made, and did not fail to follow up his good fortune by call ing on the lady in the morning. He found her so beautiful in the soft light of the drawing-room, so charmingly interesting in her merry chat about the pleasant evening they had spent together, that he half repented of his cruel design, and when at his desire she took up her guitar and sang to him her plaintive melody, and the passion, the tenderness she threw into the in strument's low tones were too much for Tim's manly heart to bear. Under the influence of strong excitement he bade Lucille adieu and, when away from her presenco, felt the full force of tho danger he had encountered. "What wonder is it," he thought, "that poor, susceptible Con fell under the spell of this Circe, when I, so much stronger, have scarcely escaped her!" On the way to his hotel, Tim met his friend, who cried out to him: "You had better look out, old fellow! It is dangerous to trifle with edged tools/ I very much fear you will be the victinji instead of the victor in the mad game you are playing!" "Never fear for me!" Tim replied, as he kissed his hand and passed on. Tim Oliver became Miss Cameron's shadow, and, truth to toll, lie began to take more interest in the lafly than he cared to own, even to himself. Lu cille always welcomed him with her brightest smiles, and seemed to live but in his presenco. Under the trees in tho moonlit park one evening they had sat down to rest after a long ramble. Lucijlp was pen sively plucking the leaves from a floppy er, while Tim was toying with hejr ivorv fan. "Of what are you thinking, my fair friend?" he asked, as his eyes rested upon hor beautiful countenance. "Of my parting from you, dear Mr. Oliver. I grieve to think that fearful time will be here to-morrow!" "Will you regret mop" ••Regret you! Bather ask me how I shall onduro existence without you!" Tim took her hand, pressod it to his lips, and for a moment retained it in a lingering grasp thon he cast it from him as he exclaimed: "Why, what a scene wo are having here! What a pitv such good acting should bo lost! Can wo not manage to have a public performance?" As soon as this cruel speech was spoken Tim felt like a criminal. He glanced up, expecting to bo annihilat ed with lightning from hor eyes, to hear her utter bitter words and re proach him with his baseness, but, in stead of that, sho looked him full in tho face, and in the moonlight SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY. Lord Rayleigh has made some in teresting investigations on color blindness with an apparatus in which the spectra are overlapped so as to produce various mixtures of colors, which are examined and described by the person under test, One of the things he has shown that the majori ty of people require only half us much red in the mixed spectra to turn yel low into green as he does himself. By far the most common form of color blindness is blindness to red. Dr. Guthrie, who is so afflicted, is more than usually sensitive to blue light and others have been found with an abnormally acute perception of red. One person appeared who suffered from tho very rare defect of being color-blind to green. These results have led an English astronomer to suggest that some of the startling changes alleged to have been noticed among the heavenly bodies have really never taken place, the supposition of such changes having probably arisen from the different color-perceiving power of different observers. That the cause of cholera is a mi croscopic organism was first recog nized in 1854 by Fillippo Pacini, of Florence, the parasite being in 1882 classified by Tommasi-Cnuleli among the schizomyceti, or germs which multiply by simple division. Pacini supposed that the organism attached muscus membrane of the intestines, but his doctrine was ridiculed or dis regarded until the same conclusion was reached by the commission of eminent German pathologists which has just investigated the subject in Egypt. The cholera germ multiplies in the soil where the exceptions of cholera patients have found their way but it may also find and an abiding place in bed-linen which has been fouled byJsucU excretions and washed without disinfectants, as was shown in 1850, when a poor Tuscan woman died with cholera received from lin en which had been infected an entire year before. Tommasi-Crudeli re marks that cholera in Europe is al ways an importation from the East, never becoming acclimatized like smallpox, and that it becomes epi demic only when the excretions con taining the germ find a soil favorable to its multiplication. An Eastern writer declares that there is now no reasonable doubt that the old Arabian alchemists and others deriyed their ideas on the transmuta tion of metals into gold and the belief in immunity from death by the use of philosopher's stone from China. Mercury is stated to have been the philosopher's stone of whieh Geber and others wrote, and cinnabar—red sulphuret of mercury—was known to the Chinese as early as the seventh century before the Christian era, its occurrence on the earths surface be ing said to indicate gold beneath Mercury was accessively emlpoyed by the Chinese as a medicine, and in the ninth century an Emperor was killed by an overdose, Their medical books say it takes 200 years to produce cin nabar in 300 years it becomes lead: in 200 years more it becomes silver and then by obtaining a transforming sub stance called "vapor of harmony" it becomes gold. This doctrine of the transformation of mercury into other metals is 2000 years old in China. The Chinese contend that when mer cury is taken into the animal system it not only prolongs life but expels bad vapors, poison, and the gloom of an uneasy mind. THE MARKETS. CHICAGO, Aug. 88.

The city is mainly built upon the large and broad terraces overlooking the river with its wooded banks and Islands, and as the slope of each terrace or bench is toward the river, the city is perfectly drained and is free from the dangers resulting from floods or imper fect sewerage. THE POPULATION OF PIERRE IS 2,500. It has an excellent municipal government. The Presbyterian College of Southern Dakota, now in operation, and numerous ward schools offer superior educational advantages. THE SURROUNDING COUNTRY is thickly settled by farmers and comprises the finest farming land in Dakota. Tne coun try west of the river and included in the great Sioux reservation (which it is cxpected will be thrown open to settlement this season) Is the best wheat growing land in Dakota. BUILDING ACTIVITY. During the past season there was erected a brick court house three brick business blocks and over 300 wooden buildings, involving an expenditure of over $1,5X),000. The first industry established in Pierre was Brick Making, of which there was manufac tured last season over 2,000,000 of superior quality, and arrangements have now been completed to manufacture more than 10,000, 000 the coming season. There is great demand here for iron work, and a foundry and ma chine shop which could make ciust pieces for buildings, breaking plows for the farmers, ana do repair work on- implements and steam boats, would do a very profitable business. ACTIVITY IN REAL ESTATE began last year and more sales were made than in the previous two years of the city s growth, and there has been a healthful, grad ual advance in the price of city property, and every one has made money by operating in real est ate. The indications point to an early spring's business and an advance in prices. There are opportunities to invest in real estate which will produce handsome returns, and money used in the erection of buildings has and will pay 25 per cent.
