London as Result of
the Drop.
London, Sept. 20. There was a heavy
closing out of accounts here today, as this
Is the first making up day for consols, and
in consequence there was a decline In
consols to 86 7-S, the lowest price reached
since the panic of 1800. There were also
forced sales of South African mining
shares and American railways are ex
tremely nervous and generally lower.
Cables from New York Intimated there

if some talk of possible failures here but
the rumors are not substantiated la re
sponsible circles.

' TEE KOSES MINES.
(J. 15. Jilibmond, Western Manager, Vllt
Ilarre and IjOcmI Stockholders.
G. B. Richmond, Western manager of
the Moses Mining and Developing com
pany arrived la tue city a few days ago
and brings good, tidings to all who hold
the stock of that oom patty, Mr. Richmond
visited the Nespilem Milling camp lust be
fore coming east and personally inspected
the mines belonging to this company. Mr,
Richmond says, "A personal inspection of
the mines belonging to the Moses Mining
and Development Company leads one to
realize the wonderful possibilities of their
mining properties. Last winter the com
pany sunk a vertical shaft on the mining
claim known as the 'llattie E.' to a depth
of 100 feet and this summer have run a
cross-cut 55 feet In length being In ledge
manner the entire distance, inrar feet
from the bottom of the shaft they cut
through a six foot body of ore which gave
an average assav value of ?t0 to the ton
Picked samples run as high as $75 to the
ton. further on iu the cross-cut several
rich st ringers of ore have been cut and the
Indications are that another rich body of
ore is close at hand.
The amount of rich ore that cropped on
the surface of this mine and the fact that
it still continues as depht Is attained
stamps it as one of the most remarkable
mines as far as developed that has ever
been discovered In the northwest. The
-company have run a tunnel in on another
of their mines and have uncovered a nice
looking body of ore four feet wide from
which picked samples assayed as high as
I20.uu to the ton.
This ledge has widened as depth ' Is at
tained. It is the purpose of the company
ta erect on the "llattie E" mine an ore
hoist at an early date, then sink the pres
ent working shaft another hundred feet
and block out the ore between the one
hundred and two hundred feet levels. The
finding of a six foot body of ore on the one
hundred foot level Is considered by min
ing men who have i-xamined the ore to be
an important and fortunate strike as the
ore not only carries high values but is
similar in character to the great Cripple
Greek ores of Colorado, lhls company is
also fortunate in being close to the Colnra
bla river where the boat company plying
this river has made a very reasonable
rate lor transporting tneir ore to the
smelter. As this company Is oilicered and
controlled entirely bv conservative Ver
mont business man it certainly atlords to
the public a most unusual opportunity foe
a legitimate mining investment.

POPE'S KINDNESS TO A BOY
How Ploa I. Befriended a Printer'
Devil.
Popea lose the greater part of their
Individuality after their election, wise
ones have always said, but every one
in the Vatican is already convinced
that Plus X. retains the same charac
teristics he displayed as a bishop, not
withstanding his new dignity, says the
Rome correspondent of the New York
' V'orld. His manners continue to be as
affable as before bis election, and the
familiar way he deals with every one
who succeeds in approaching him
forms the despair of the straltiaeed
courtiers who held otlice under h's
predecessor.
In the Vatican he continues to con
verse familiarly with all those of the
employees whom ho happens to meet,
and the following incident is worth re
peating as demonstrating the extreme
affability of the new pontiff. A littlo
boy, the printer's devil of the Vatican
printing office, returning home from
work a few evenings ago happened to
come face to face with the pl In the
garden. Deilghted at this unexpected
meeting, which realized some of his
fondest dreams, the boy knelt to kiss
the pope's hand.
Pius X. was much pleased at the de
votion shown by the youth and stopped
awhile inquiring about the boy's work
aud his family. The nt xt morning on
his arrival at the printing office the boy
received an order of suspension signed
by the director himself !v;siv-e of his
having approached the pu;.e contrary
to the orders of the- ums:,io;-duino. The
niiitier nunc to the ca.-s oi. Pius X.,
who sent his private senetnry to t'ac
homo t.f the young boy, summoning
him to Lis apartments, whore the pope
made him a present of money aud
gave him a written order to the direc
tor that he be reinstated and his pay
Increased.
MARTIN IS
ELUSIVE
Much Wanted Han Es
capes Detection.
HE WAS SEEN IN BERLIN
John Laforrest Claimed He Saw Him
In His Potato Patch, with
Winchester in Hand.
Northfield, Sept. 29. Up to 1 o'clock
this afternoon Adelbert Martin, alleged
assailant of Mrs. Stephen Trorablee, was
still at lavge although Officer J. A. Hutch
inson and Sherilt H. C. Mose'.ey with, a
few citizens kept up the search all day.
Intelligence was received last evening
that Martin was seen at noon on Turkey
HiH, in Berlin on the road leading to Ber
lin Pond and about three miles from
Synth Northfield. John Laforrest saw
him in his potato patch. Ha is sure of
his man as he served a year with him in
the house of Correction at Rutland.
Martin was dressed in dark clothes and
wore a straw hat. He had do collar or tie
and carried a gun that looked like a Win
chester rifle. He also had a flour sack
with him in which he had some potatoes.
When Laforrest accosted Martin, the
latter told him to stop or he would make a
skimmer of him. Laforrest went to North
field and reported what he had seen.
Officer Lfutcblnson and citizens went to
the scene but when darkness fell they
were still hunting for the fugitive. Mar
tin's tracks from the potato held to an ad
joining forest were plainly visible.
An inquiry for a description of Martin
came from Warren yesterday from parties
who stated that a man called at their home
that morning early and asked for some
thing to eat. Upon its being proffered to
him he declined to come Into the house
but took it In his hand and went down the
road munching as he walked. Suspecting
it mlyht be the much wanted Martin the
parties followed him down the road and
endeavored to converse with him, where
upon the man preserved silence and finally
turned abruptly and disappeared into the
woods.
The description sent out of Martin is
that he is !, years of age, five feet seven
ineles in height, dirk complexion, weigh
ing ISO pounds. His hair is black and of
a heavy growth making it stick out ia a
bushy manner from the back of his head.
A scar the size of a pea is over his left
eye ia which can be seen a piece of silver
which was nsed several year ago in treat
ing a skull wound. lie also has a scar
upon his upper lip. One or two fingers on
his left hand are badly lacerated from the
teeth of Mrs. Trombley at the time he as
saulted her. When he fled he was dressed
in a black worsted suit and wore a new
pair of shoes.
MUST PAY FOR LIQUOR.
Voti is Say Old Board Selectmen Shall Set
tle Deficit.
St. Albans, Sept. 28. A special meeting
of the voters of the town of St. Albans
was held in the town hall at St. Albans
Bay this morning. At this meeting it was
decided to make the last year's boird of
selectmen pay for the deficit In the liquor
exchequer or else sue the members of the
board. The facts in the case as brought
forth at the meeting are as follows:
There is at present on the hands of the
town, left there when the town agency
was closed, some liquor which cost the
town $2,417.11. Just what the actual value
of this liquor is seems to be somewhat in
doubt but an offer was made the town in
the meeting this morning to take the stock
of liquors off the hands of the town and
pay $1,000 for the accommodation, the
liquor being thrown In. Tho offer led to
considerable discussion which was not
limited to one person at a time but was in
dulged in by any one who happened to
feel like speaking, the result being some
thing simply impossible to transcribe.

THE FLOPIDA STORM.
W. E. Barney. Formerly of This City,
Write of Their Narrow Kape.
A letter received by the Times from W.
K. Barnev. formerly of this city, but now
of Alva, Fla., tells how the recent great
storm there affected him and his property.
The Wter says:
"I am glad to be aula to report mac
while we were In the path of the storm
and felt its full force, and while people
all about us including our nearest neigh
bors, were driven fain home and kept
away ten days by the fl.iod, we were un
harmed as our bouses are on high land
and so above the water. There has been
great suffering and loss of crops and some
loss of fruit, the loss of fruit being caused
largely by the tierce wind of Friday nlnht,
the 11th. Thia overflow has not been
equaled in 25 years, though there was one
that approached it in June, 1001, wltn the
difference that the water receded then in
two or three days while this year it has
remained about ten days, and even now is
over much of the country. At Denand,
four miles up the river, the only store
stauds by the river bank on high land ana
is up about, four feet above the ground and
the water came up about two feet above
the top of the counters. The reports of
the storm aud its results have not been
exaggerated and the damage to the crops
will be large."

CROTO PLEADS
NOT GUILTY
Of The Harder of Peter
Vorron
IS ARRAIGNED IN COURT.
Case Will be Put on For Trial Soon,
States Attorney Eailcy
Prosecuting.
Montpelier, Sept. 2,S.--Bartho!ouiew
Croto pleaded not guilty to the charge of
murdering Peter Vorron at East Montpel
ier on the night of September 8 last, when
brought into court this afternoon, State's
Attorney Bailey having asked Judge Ha-
selton to set this case for trial. P. A.
Hoarof Barre has been assigned to assist
the state's attorney in the conduct of the
prosecution, while M. M. Gordon of Barre
represents the respondent.
Vorron was killed by a charge from a
shot gun while returning to his home with
his son, Peter, after getting a load of
wood four miles from home. Vorron died
In a few minutes after receiving tha
charge.
Owing to his inability to understand
thoroughly the English language an inter
preter, Jesse Cayhuo of Barre, was sworn
in. The indictment was road to him by
County Clerk Smilie. After pleading not
guilty Croto was remanded to jail without
ball. Although no date was set for tha
trial it is thought that it will come up for
trial this term.
The accused man did not appear to be
much concerned over the proceedings. To
his acquaintances in the court room he
nodded and smiled. Mrs. Croto, weeping
bitterly, waited outside the court house r
sea her husband. Her ten-year old son
was with her.
(ieorge W. Freeman of Calais, who was
indicted by the grand jury for an assault
with intent to commit, rape on Marcia Co
ro Goodrich, aged six years, at V,A.g
nsst 8 last, pleaded not guilty. Judge Ila
sieton fixed his bail at f (1,000 which was
furnished by T. J. Deavitt, his counsel...
Freeman is 13 years old and is said to be
one of the wealthiest farmers in Calais. ln
tixirg bail in this ease Judgellaselton said
it should have a speedy trial. If the re
spondent is innocent he is entitled to have
his innocence proved without delay, and If
he is guilty the state demands that he be
tried without unnecessary delay. The
court said it knew nothing about the facts
in the case and did not desire to do so at
this time, but the gravity of the crime
charged in the indictment warranted fixing
bail at that figure.,
Edward Clark o jlontpelier, who was
commuted to Jail in default of bail from
Montpelier city court several weeks ago on
a charge of attempt at rape on Emma Blll
ideau, aged 11 years, and who was Indicted
by the grand ju.-y, also pleaded not guiity.
Bail was not asked for in this case as the
respondent has no means and. bo was re
manded to Jail.
Ernest Folsom of Marshfield, charged -
with a breach of the peace, was brought i
in aud bail was fixed at $;!00, which w as
furnished. Charles A. Graham of Cabot '
who was indicted for grand larceny in
stealing parts of a gasolene engine nsed to .
run a threshing machine, had his bail
fixed at f-oOO. This amount he could not.
raise today but hopes to later. J
John Koberts of Berlin, who was In
dicted for grand larceny in stealing $0and
a pair of trousers valued at $0 from Wil
liam Brown, pleaded not guiity. A report
was received from the state hospital for :
the insane at Waterbury that Charles
Getcheil, who is nnder Indictment for
cruelty to animals and was sent to the asy-
