She had on board a crew of eighteen, the captain's wife and daughter.. On Saturday morning at 1:30 o'clock, during a gale, an unknown schooner was sighted dead ahead. The steamer was put to starboard, but the schooner changed her course at the same time, the result being a collision. The sailing craft, deeply laden, struck the steamer amidship, tearing open a ten foot hole and flooding the engine room. The schooner's mast went by the boards and as the gale drove the vessels apart, cries for help were heard coming from the schooner.

John Milster Receives Six Shots in his Body Phillip 31clt:tire Fatally Wounded and Dies this Morning Story of a Horrible Crime. From the Asheville Citizen. A terrible shooting affair occured in the city last eveniDg. John Milster, a bartender for J. H. Loughran, was shot six times and instantly killed, and Philip Mclntire was shot once in the left lung. He died at 9:30 o'clock this morning. The affray took nlace in Hampton & Featherston's bar-room on .North Mam street at about 9:45 o'clock last evening. ihe trouble between the two men is said to have originated over a woman who lives on Bailey street. It is said that Milster has been intimate with her for the past two years, and that recently Mclntire had begun going to her house. On Ihursday evening Milster went around and met Mclntire and the woman talking in the front yard. With out saying a word he passed on in where he waited some time for the girl to come. Finally becoming impatient he stepped to the door and called to her and again returned to his seat. She paid no at tention and he called her again. This time she replied that she would be in in a minute and Mclntire supplemented it with the remark that she would come in when she pleased. At this Milster went into the yard. Some hot words followed and Milster is said to have pulled a pis tol on Mclntire. However nothing serious resulted although hard feelings were engendered. Early last night Mclntire and Pratt met Milster in front of J. H. Loughran's saloon on South Main street and Mclntire pulling a revolver and shoving it under his nose invited Milster to drink. The latter complied and after a few minutes Mclntire and his crowd went out. More than this Milster told his employer a few minutes afterward, that coupled with this insult he had Deed called a liar, thief and kicked. What occurred after this nobody seems to know, until thev met in Hampton & Featherston's bar on North Main street. Lum Featherston, who was behind tho bar at the time, told of the attair this morning. Mclntire. his brother John, of At lanta, and his brother-in-law W. L. L Pratt, the city jailer, were standing at the bar drinking, said Mr. Feath erston, when Milster entered. He stood behind the three men, and Mclntiro turned around and asked him to drink. "I have just had my supper," he re plied, "and do not care for anything." 'Then have a cigar," said Mclntire. "Thanks, I'm smoking," replied Mil ster, at the same time lifting his hand and showing a cigar. With that Mclntire stepped back, at I HON. F. the same time slapping Milster on the shoulder and said: "Come, John, I want to see you." The two started toward the rear of the room apparently engaged in a friend ly discussion and Mr. Featherstone paid no attention to tliem until a minute later he saw Mclntiro strike Milster, knocking off his hat. Tho latter stooped over to pick it up and at the same time said: "Look here, Jiunk, 1 don t want tu navo any trouble with vgu; let's settle taitj some other way." At this Pratt rushed to the rear of tho room and Mr.Featherston, next particu larly noticed two bright Hashes like tho firing of revolvers. Both of tnem wero directed toward Milster. To the best of Mr. Featherston's knowledge about fif teen shots were fired, although he did not see them. He stepped to a place of safety behind a screen. During the shooting tho trio naa step ped through the door and onto a small stoop in the rear of tne nouse, ana wnen it ceased Milster tried to make his way to the front of the building. At about the centre of the room he stumbled and fell dead. Mclntire, who had remained behind, walked forward and placing the muzzle of his weapon at the dead man's temple fired the last remaining cartridge. He snapped the pistol until the cylinder had revolved but nc more reports were heard. By this time his own wound began to pain him and putting his hand to his side he made for the street. At the door he stumbled and fell and was car ried by friends to the Western Hotel where medical aid was summoned, urs. Williams. Watson and McBrayer re sponded but recognized at once that the wound was fatal and all tnat coma oe done was to ease his sufferings. While on his death bed he repeated several times to his brother, who had been summoned, "I did the work, but I did it with his own pistol." His ante- mortem statement was to the effect that when he struck Milster the latter drew a revolver and fired the shot that gave him his death wound. He jumped for ward at once and wrested the revolver from the hand of his assailant and pull ing his own began pumping bullets into Milster's bodv with both weapons, rratt he exonerated from all blame and took all of the irailfc to himself. "I knew what he had done for me," he said to man at his bedside, "and I intended to kill him.', , Mclntire knew that he had but a few hours to live and asked Dr. Watson, who spoke to him of forgiveness, to pray for him. Up to three o'clock this morning he was conscious. At that time he grad ually began sinking until the end came at 9:30. j TRYING TO liOLD THE TOUT.

It was stated here Saturday that Brower was worse scared to meet Baldy Williams on the stump than any man he has ever had to tackle. 'H: LOTTERY I' A SER.MON. The little "dicky bird" has let loose a secret which must be given the readers of the Chronicle. Your correspondent What Rev. Dr. J. W. Carter I old About the Big Louisiana Swindle to His Congregation. Everybody who heard Rev. Dr. J. W. Carter's sermon at tho First Baptist Church ou Sunday pronounced it to be a grand discourse. It made an impres sion on every hearer,; and has been re ferred to many times since its delivery in various conversations. The general subject was "The Wick edness of Provoking Others to Sin." He used several strong illustrations and an alogies, and among other things he touched upon the Louisiana State Lot tery as an agent provocative of sin. He gave a short but remarkable history of the efforts of that company to get its charter renewed by the State, in which he said : The charter of the Louisana Stato Lot tery ia about to expire. To get that charter renewed requires an amendment to the constitution, and a two thirds vote of both houses of tho legislature is necessary to carry this amendment. An amendment which will permit a renewal of the charter of the lottery was passed in the house by a two thirds vote. Then the bill went to the senate. The lottery people worked with the senate by their peculiar methods until heard today that the Farmers' Alliance thev flt crtAin that thev ho1 RPcnrnd of Forsyth county, had expelled from the the necessary two thirds to carry the oruer one 01 our nepuuuean couniy om- measure through that body.

A most horrible case of infanticide has been discovered here. A colored woman at work in one of our factories met, a lottery senator fell down in a fainting fit and the matter had to be postponed.

Their dwellings are not yet completed, but they desire to become acquainted with things before the school opens.

Again tho legislature had to adjourn, while the word went around that GOD IS AGAINST TIIC LOTTERY. But tho measure tfinally passed tho senate by a two-thirds vote. Then tho Governor met it with a brave, ringing, stinging veto. The house promptly passed it over tho Gov ernor's veto, and again it went to tho senate. Then another lottery senator was taken sick. A time was fixed when ho should be brought to tho senate cham ber on his sick bed to voto for it. But tha time came, the rains poured down and he could not be brought. Then it was proposed that the senate should meet in tho sick senator's room to give him an opportunity to voto for tho wicked measure; but peath came and defeated the plan. Then both branches of the legislature hurriedly passed a res olut ion, declaring that the Governor had no right to veto the measure and ad journed, and now it will go to the courts.
