Rube had placed his. rifle in the corner of the room, but still re tained his. trusty revolvers.' The col ored men engaged him in conversatf n. He did not suspect that they were1 against him, and in an unguarded mo ment the two pounced upon him, each' one (seizing ' a hand to prevent his shooting. He fought the darkies 'desV perately, but McDuffee and others eooii came on the scene' and after a struggle succeeded i in subduing and; securely tying the desperado.

Carter, the other captor was at the hotel with the money, found - on Burrow's person when he was arrested. The outlaw's hands and feet were tied, and every precaution was taken to pre vent his getting away. Early yesterday morning he com plained of hunger, McDuffee answered that he had nothing to eat. A pair of saddle-bags, ' whioh had been taken from the prisoner, was lying in the room,' Looking toward them in a care less sort of way the outlaw observed: "I have some crackers in my saddle bags'if you will hand them to me.', McDuffee suspected nothing, and handed the saddlebags over without opening them. Burrows, ' instead of crackers, drew forth a pair of pistols, and, covering McDuffee and the negro, ordered them to untie him, whioh they did, and, keeping them in front of him, he walked out of the front dooor. He then asked for his money, and started toward the hotel to recover it of Car ter, who had it. The latter, of course, was greatly sur prised to see Burrows, whom he sup posed was bound hand and foot in jail. Burrows drew his revolver and de manded his money. Both then opened fire, and Burrows was killed, while Caftere received an ugly, wound in the breast. The affair has created intense excitement. Carter is the hero of the hour. The extent of his injuries is not known at present. Another account says that Burrows, went to the hotel, but did not, find Carter there. He was .sleeping in a room in the rear of the store of a mer chant. Burrows went there at once, and with the aid of a negro who he had compelled to accompany him, made the negro knock at the door and tell Carter he was wanted at the jail. When Car ter appeared he demanded his money. Carter at once drew his pistol and both men shot at the same moment. Carter was wounded in the breast and Bur rows was shot through the bowels. As Burrows fell he aimed his revolver at the negro and sent a ball through his, shoulder. Burrows died at once. Car ter is fatally wounded and the negro only slightly. County dominations. Utica, N.

Reports like the firing of thousands of cannon followed in quick succession. . High V masses buildings and earth were thrown hundreds, of feet In the air.- Their fall was accom panied. by fearful crashes. From, where I stood it was impossible to tell in what order the mills were blown up, but it was the big middle magazine building that exploded first. I rushed to the nearest tree and hid myself from - the destruction. The tree shook as if in a hurricane. I heard the sound of some heavy material fall to the ground. I looked twenty yards ahead of me and saw - a stone, no doubt part of the foundation of one of the buildings. It was about two feet long and , a foot wide. The distance from where I stood to the scene of destruction was about a mile. I was half blinded and choked by the smoke." - The-following is a corrected list of the killed: William McGarvey, ) William R. Green. I Michael Harrigan.

Will the Meeting To-day in New Tork Bring About sv Compromise. ; ( New York, Oct. 9. The conference) of baseball men at the Fifth Avenue Hotel to-day will, it is thought, reach an agneement that will harmonize the game next season. All the League clubs have representatives in attendance and the American Association and Broth-; erhood have delegates within easy. reacn in case tneir services are neeueu. Bv this means all unnecessary delays will be avoided and the work of tha conference expedited. Few of the mag-" nates expect to see the compromise effected at the present session, bus within anojther week they are confident that sters to accomplish - this purpose will be under way. From what could be learned from the gossip in the hotel corridor before the conference was begun it seemed that the majority of . the . League and th ' Players were - opposed to the con solidation scheme. They think the avoiding of conflicting schedules will . enable them both to live, but . it will . never revive local interest. The patron age would be just as evenly divided as this season. There is therefore only one real , way out, and that is through, the consolidation of the three organ izations and the .reconstruction of the circuits. . ' . s; . "w' " - -xhe subject nas to Da nanaiea very delicately, and while a few of the . League men still favor the continua tion of hostilities the majority of them are weary of the war. On the other hand the Players' - ere most considerate in their talk of the compromise. Even Ward, who was so 'opposed to playin g with the men who deserted the Broth erhood at the beginning of the season, Bald to-day that this should not prevent the settlement of the difficulty.
