HOW IT HAPPENED Col. McClner Tells Why 'Pbonlnjr Policemen Were Klllt I (Richmond Times.) The following anonymous communi cation was received by the me yester day: "Dear Sir As you are perhaps as familiar with the working of the tele phone as any one else in Richmond, might It not be well to expalin (if it can be satisfactory done) through the daily papers, the cause of the accident referred to in the enclosed clipping? Please state also if there is danger of similar accidents here or elsewhere at any time. By so doing you might relieve the minds of some who might otherwise have the xnes removed from their homes." The clipping referred to bv the writer of the above note was the tele graphic item from St. Louis under date of September 4th, recounting the death and injury of several oolicemen from electric shocks. Responding to the suere-estion ofthA writer of the note, I desire to say that me leiepnones which the policemen were using were doubtless those of the municipal auxiliary fire alarm and po lice telephone system, .which, like the teiepnones of a similar system, main tained and operated bv the eitv of Richmond, were contained in iron boxes similar to those of the Game well fire alarm system attached to lamp posts or telegraph poles on the sidewalks. The location of these tele phones out of doors renders it neces sary for the individuals desiring to use me leiepnones ty stand on the side- walK or ground. Under these condi tions, particularly when the irround 1 damp from a recent rain, if the user of tne telephone chances to touch with his hand the connecting terminals on the receiver to which the phone cords are attached, his body furnishes a direct path to earth for any electrical current that may be on telephone wires. lhese were doubtless the conditions under which the accidents reported from St. Louis occurred. An electric light or power wire evidently became accidentally crossed with the telephone wire at some point contiguous or re mote and charged the telephone wl-es to a point of danger, ready to seek the most direct path to the earth. This was afforded by the body of the po liceman, with the sad result stated in the account. Such an accident could not nossiblv have occurred had the telephones been located under roof, unless the victims had touched the connecting posts or tips of the phone cords with one hand. and the gas or water pipe or other grounded conductor with the other hand. As long as the body of an individual at a telephone is insulated from the earth, or does not afford a path for the extraneous current from the danger ously charged wire to the earth, he is in no danger. Only electricty of high electro-motive force such as lightning. win pass through what are ordinarily called non-conductors. A dry floor coverrl by ordinary carnets or mat tings is such i. non-conouotor, and the only danger to be apprehended from the use of the telephone as ordinarily located in telephone exchange stations is from lightning, the very high elec tro-motive force of which will some times causes it to pass though sub stances that are completely impervious to lower tension currents such as those of electro light and power systems. For this reason telephone subscribers should obey the Injunction of the tele phone companies and not attempt to use their telephones during a thunder storm close at hand. If telephone users will refrain from touching the metal part of the tele phone and always grasp the receiver by the hard rubber case, and be care ful not to stand on damp earth or touch grounded water or fras pipes, they will be in no danger of experiencing the fate of the St. Louis policemen who neglected these ordinary precautions.

His big blue shirt was still moist, for the labors of a brew ery man are not overocol. From the hallway came snatches of a RhTne so:'i and vhe aroma of soups. The frau was in the kitchen. Presently a young man with a vr.:.'-ted box under his arm crossed directly from the other side. He coughed and Hans slowly opened his eyes. "Excuse me," began the young man, " but have you ever seen any waltzing m,ic- Valtzing mice?" echoed the Teuton, looking curious y at the box, Yes, sir, waltzing mice.' Nein! I haf scene der mice mit der bink eyes, vot? Haf schene der mice mit der green tails, aind it? But I neffer schene der mice dot valtz, vonce." "Well, here is your onrrortunity," and the young man placed one of the mice on the step. The little creature whirl ed ike a dervish. "Vos he crazy, vonce?" "No, he is waltzing. Watch his move ments. The greatest living curiosity tof the time." "Valtzing? Veil, I vistle der moo sic." Hans puckered his lips and struggled through an air that might have been "Watch on the Rhine." or "Salome." "Now, let me sell you these wonders at a bargain." "Vot? I buy der mice?" "Yes, you can have the tw for a dollar. They are worth twice tha,t much.' "Vili der mice valtz afterwards?" "Always. They never grow weary." "How mouch?" "One dollar for the two: box thrown in." The Teuton dug a crampled green back from the depths of his pocket. "Here she vas." "Thanks! Come over s.nd take some thing?" "I neffer refuse," and, rushing in, he deposited the box on a table in the parlor. Then he joined the young J man, and together they crossed the corner. eTsnlerle eou next week to sen lou next ween.

Savannah, Ga,, September 10. Bish op H. M. Turner, of the African Meth odist church, denies the report that he will take the stump in favor of the election of Mr. Bryan. In an interview he says: " I am not a democrat, never Tiave been one and never expect to be. I have no intention of stumping the country for Mr. Bryan. I dislike Mr. McKinley and the attitude which, he has assumed toward the negro and J intend to vote for Mr. Bryan, in the belief that any change 13 better than none. This is no new change of heart for me. For sixteen years I have been; cooling towards the republcan party ever since the decision of the supreme court which practically held that a negro has no civil rights. From that date to this the decisions of the su preme court have been against the ne gro where a question of his politcal or civil rights was involved. I have heard of one Instance where the su preme court held in the case of a ne gro from Texas that he was entitled to trial by a jury of his peers, that is one composed (at ieast partly) of ne groes, but I have not verified , this. The supreme court has practically decitinezied the negro and has nullified the amendments to the constitution. I do not know what Mr. Bryan's views are on these questions which affect the negro race, but I believe that he is a man of sufficient honesty to use his influence in behalf of right and justice. Mr. McKinley has done noth ing for the negro except to appoint a few of them to office." TIIK TRIAL OF THE POPS.

New York Trib une. DEATn OFMR. nOTtA' K II. MV.VSOS j He Passed Away suuuay Nltfht He Was One of the Mo! Pro olneiit Ma-! sous In the staiv Hi- Funeral ToJ;y The Messenger announces with sin cere and deep regret the death of that most highly esteemed citizen and prominent business man, Mr. Horace H. (Munson. The entire community and a wide circle of acquaintances in North Carolina will share in the sor rows of his family and universal sym pathy will be felt for them in their irreparable loss. Mr. Munson passed away Sunday night at 8:30 o'clock at his home, 019 Walnut street, after an illness of eight weeks. About three years ago Mr. Munson had a stroke of appoplexy and though he returned to business, his friends were pained to realize that a decline had set in. He had a spell of sickness lasting six weeks last fall, and his death now is due to a general breaking down of his system. The deceased was born in Cazenovia, New York, March 1, 1S27, and was con sequently in the 74th year of his age. He remowd to Wilmington in 1S33, and has since made this city his home. Soon after he came to Wilmington he became a salesman in the clothing and gents furnishing establishment of Messrs. Scott & Baldwin and when Mr. Scott left Wilmington and Mr. O. S. Baldwin succeeded to the business, Mr. Munson remained with him up to about the time the civil war broke out. He bought out Mr. Baldwin's business and during the war he had an impor tant contract with the confederate government. He conducted the busi- nocc till i-Vn "ff V T Ifir.lind was admitted as a partner under the firm name of Munson & Co. This partnership lasted about seventeen years, and upon the retirement of Mr. Harding Mr. Munson again continued the business in his own name. Ten years ago he admitted to partnership his son Mr. H. P. Munson, under the firm name of Munson & Co. For the pa i twenty years the establishment has done a successful business in clothing, merchant tailoring, and gents furn:shing goods at No. 32 north Front street, but some months ago the firm purchased the eligible two-story brick building at 106-108 north Front street and it is now being remuled and will soon occupied by the business. Mr. jiTinson nad looked forward with a great deal of pleasure to the time he would get into his own building, but death 'has prevented him from realiz ing that expectation. The firm will. however, move into the new store in a short while. Mr. Munson Was one of the most prominent Masons in the state and was ardently devoted to Masonry, freely giving at all times his time and talents to promote its- welfare and advance- men. He was well versed in the rituals, laws, traditions and literature of Mas onry and was justly regarded, as an authority upon those subjects. The offices he held and his rapid promotion thereto are evidence of the high esteem in which he was theld by the various .Masonic bodies or which he was a member. Jle was made a Mason in St. John's Lodge No. 1, in this city, in 1865, was master of the lodge during the years 1868 to 1873 'both inclusive; grand master in is7 and 1878: was made a Royal Arch Mason in Concord Chapter No. 1 in 1865, High Priest from 1877 to 1851 both inclusive, and Grand High Priest in 1874 and 1875; was made a Royal and Select Master in Wilmington (now Munson) Council No. 4, in 1866. Thrice Illustrious Mas ter In 1874 and 1875 and thrice illustri- L?dlr I2 Hlfi created a Knight Templar in (Wilming ton, (now Plantagent) Command ery No. 1 in 1872, was Eminent Commander in 1875-6 and 7 and elected the first Grand Commander of Knights Tern plar in North Carolina in 1881-2 and 3. He was fleeted Grand Secretary of the Grand Chapter in 1S92 and Grand Re corder 01 the Grand COmmandery in 1886 and held these offices at the time of his death. In all these offices, he displayed knowledge, skill, judgment and administrative abilities of a high order and was one whom his brethren delighted to honor; while his grand disposition, social nature and high character endeared him to all Mr. Munson was a good business man and a most excellent citizen. He has always held the highest respect and confidence of the community, and it was one of his traits to make one leave him feeling better than when he came. His geniality and warm heart edness was proverbial and made him a host of friends. He has for many years been a (prominent member of the First Presbyterian church, having been deacon and elder. He has been an elder for many years up to the time of 'his death. His life as a christian has been exemplary and in his church as in the community he has been high ly regarded as a man of fine character and staunch integrity. Mr. Munson married Miss Louise Banks, of this city, September 8th, 1854. and she survives him with four children Mr. John B. Munson, general freight agent of the Southern Railway with headquarters in New York, Messrs. H. Percy Munson and Edward H. Munson, and Miss Kate C. Munson, of this city. His children are here, except, Mr. John B. Munson who is ex- I n- r- .1 , V ! - I - pected this morning. The funeral will take place this moil ing at 11 o'clock from the residence and the interment will "be made 5n Oakdale cemetery. The members of Wilmington and Orient Lodges are requested to attend the funeral. ARCHIE KINSAUL'S FATE. A Report That lie Is Starving nimself.
