Washington, Nov. 2L The Uniied
States supreme court ti day, in the case
of Charles E. Cook, an appellant from a
lecision of the United States court for
the eastern district of Wisconsin, ren
dered an interesting decision as to the
owcr of United States courts to inter
fere in state offences. Cook was charged
with a violation of the 6tatute of Wiscon
sin by receiving a dt posit, knowing his
ank was insolvent. When the deposit
was received by the ct-shier of Cook's
bank, Cook was in the state
of Wisconsin, but took the train
or Chicago before the deposit was
iciually entered up. lie was arrested in
Chicago on a requisition issued by the
governor of Wisconsin and a writ of
habeas corpus was sued out in the state
court, but the court discharged the writ
and delivered the prisoner to the agent
of the state of Wisconsin to be taken
back for trial. Pending his trial he
made application to the circuit court of
the United States, claiming that he was
not a fugitive from justice within the
meaning of the constitution and laws of
the United States. The United States
court dismissed this writ and an appeal
was taken to the supreme court from the
Mr. Justice Brown affirmed the posi
tion previously held by the Supreme
court, that where a person is in custody
under process from a state court of ong
inal jurisdiction for an alleged offence
against the laws of the state, and it is
claimed that he is restrained of liberty
in the violation of the constitution of the
United States, the circuit court of the
United States has a discretion whether or
not it will discharge him in advance of
his trial, and may. if it choose, require
him to sue out his writ of error before
the highest court of the state. There
fore the decree of the United States cir
cuit court in refusiug to discharge the
defendant under a writ of habeas corpus
was affirmed.

It Will Wipe out tlie Law.
By Telegraph to State Chronicle.
Washington. Nov 21. The Presi
dent is considering the advisability of
extending the provisions of the civil ser
vice law so as to put withm the classified
service, many people not now within its
protecting scope. It is said that the
President was only prevented from such
extension before the election by the sad
circumstances with which he was sur
rounded for the previous six months.
Strange to say among- manv democrats
here the proposition meets with favor,
because they feel that the people want a
change in the offices and have said so,
and if the civil service is extended now
after the verdict of the election a senti
ment will be c-eated that will wipe the
whole law from the statute books.

By Telegrapd to State Chronicle.
Washington, Nov. 21. There was a
cible railroad discussion in the United
States Supreme caurt to day which will
piobably set at rest the disputed ques
tion i as to the laying of the road beds for
gio cars. The original suit was brought
in the circuit court of the United States
for the So ithern District of New York
by Henry Root against the Third Avenue
Railroad Company. The plaintiff alleged
priority of invention in the method of
laying cable railroad tracks in a substra
tum of concrete so as to solidify the
whole into a rigid structure. He claimed
that previous to his invention all cable
railroads had been constructel of iron
rioj of the form of a tuie, the spaces be
tween the ribs filled in with wood. The
fact of priority of invention was virtually
not put in dispute, but it is alleged that
the invention had been in practical use
n the city of San Francisco for more
ban two years before the plaintiff ap
plied for his patent. Mr. Justice B ath
ford held that the evidence substantiated
his fact and therefore that Root was not
entitled to a patent and his bill was dis

William R. Hinder Shoots His Wife

. Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 21 William
it. Binder, book keeper for Leiderslorf
& Company, wholesale tobacco dealers,
shot his wife, his 5 year old daughter
and then himself, this morning at their
residence. The servant girl was the
only person in the bouse with the little
family and slept in the room next to
that occupied by the family.
About 5 o'clock this morning she
heard Binder get up and go to the bath
room and she heard him return. At 6
o'clock she got up and went to the
kitchen to get bieakfast. While she was
busy she heard two sharp reports in
quick succession, but the furnace had a
hbit of emitting such concussions, and
she paid no attention to them. When
breakfast was ready she rang the bell,
and getting no response went up stairs to
call the family. The door was open aud
she saw Binder on the bed with a revol
ver in his hand. She aroused the neigh
bors and when they came in a horrible
sight met their gaze.
Binder lay on his back dead, with the
revolver in his band and a fearful wound
iu his head, over hi i right ear. His wife
had her face turned toward the wall and
was in the last gasps of death with a bul
let hole in her head, and tie little

the bed and was also nearly dead with a

nothing had happened.
When he did the shooting he probably
held the revolver so close to the heads of
his victims that their hair was singed.
The wife died in about half an hour and
the child some time later.
No cause whatever can be assigned for
his rash deed. The family were known
to live happily together and no domestic
discord could h ive occuired. He left no
explanation, as yet. discovered, giving a
reason for the awful tragedy. He was a

as planned. The world has never witnessed
before so much suffering and sacrifice
for a cuse. The 3,000 laborers and
mechanics who came out with our men
on pure principle alone, is unprecedented
in the history of labor struggles. But to
the men in the Larenceville (union
mills) and Beaver Falls mills, too much

Judge Bond signed an order to-day au

Terminal Company, to institute proceed
ings to secure the cancellation of a con
tract by which the Terminal company
purchased $ 12,000 000 of the capital
stock and $3,553,000 of the collateral
trust bonds of the Georgia com
pany. Mr. Oakman is also authorized
to institute suits to recover money the
Terminal company is alleged to have lost
in the transaction. 1 he order is similar
to one previously passed in New York.
The stock and bonds in question have
been deposited with the Central Trust
Company of New York as a part security
for the issue of f 1 1,500,000, 5 per cent
bonds by the Terminal company. The
petition alleged that the Terminal
company paid over f,uuu,uuo ior
the securities of the Georgia com
pany and that at the time of the pur
chase they were worth only half that
sum. It is also alleged that the purchase
was made from a syndicate composed in
large part of the directors and officers of
the Terminal company, at least three of
its directors being interested in the syn
dicate. This syndicate, it is further al
leged, had but a short time previously
purchased the securities at about half
the price received fiom the Terminal and
in the transaction the Terminal company
was represented by directors and officers
who were themselves selling to the com
pany as members of the syndicate. The
petition declares that the sale is voidable

Powder Explosion.
By Telegraph to State Chronicle.
Steuben ville, O., Nov. 21 A fear
ful powder explosion occurred shortly
after noon to day at the Blanch coal
mine, at Colliers. W. Va. Twenty five
kegs of powder exploded causing the
instant death of three miners and the
erious wounding of eight others, three
of whom will probably die. One man
was just entering the mine when the ex
plosion occurred and was blown a d is
tance of fifteen feet over a trestle.
The explosion occurred as the men
were returning from dinner, and had it
occurred ten minutes later the destruc
tion of life would have been something
awful. The force of the explosion shook
the ground as though by an earthquake.
It is supposed that it was caused by a
piece of fuse which had become lighted
in some manner and conveyed the fatal
spark to the boxes in whijh the pjwder
cans were kept.

Fire at Vorkvllle S.
By Telegraph to State Chronicle
Columbia, S. C. Nov. 21 At York
ville this morning the dry goods store of
Hunter & Oates, the second store of
which contained the opera house, to
1896, will be a wether with the court house and two
mall wooden buildings used as law
church or other organization there is at
s ime time a supreme grief which over
shadows all other sorrows and in the
darkening gloom of which every other
'...'. j-di innTjr-in.LLueiiL t i mil uuou seems
slight and trivial. Such is the supreme
and overshadowing sorr -.w that has set-
tied upon this tsundav school.
We have had frequent oereavements
by whish pious and devoted ofiicers and
cachers, aud pure and promising pupils
have been separated from their colieagues
and colaborers by the band of death, but
these losses, while they left wounds and
scars, did not drive the iron into our
hearts as the death of our dearly beloved
Bain has done. Iso one connected with
this Suuday school can remember the
ime when our departed brother was not
an important part of it if not its most de
voted and zealous officer and member;
aad there are but few, if any, members
of the church, lengthened though their
lives be by borrowed years whose recol
lection of this Sunday school and its
work does not bring vividly to their
minds the gentle boy and gentle man
who has just been laid to rest in our
City of the Dead. His benevolent face
and kindly manner, his gentle voice and
cheerful greeting so familiar i,o every
one wno attends this school and church,
are sadly missed to day.
The history of this Sunday school,
should it ever be written, would not be
accurate or complete did it not tell, upon
almost every page, of something that
Donild Bain said or did for its upbuild
ing and prosperity, and should its histo
rian desire to depict upon his pages a
model of piety, zeal and virtue, the life
and character of Mr. Bain would afford
him at once and completely the materials
for his worK
It is proper that, upon the death of
such a man. so closely related as he was
by a lifetime service in this Sunday
school, we should give expressions to our
sense of loss and place upon record our
estimate of his worth; therefore
li-solved, lhat in the death cf our
brother, Donald W. Bain, assistant super
mtendent of the Edenton Street Method
1st episcopal Sunday school, we nave
sustained a loss that is severe, grievous
and irrt parable one that seems a per
sonal loss to every one who, as an officer
or teacuer or pupil, has come within the
influence of his gentle and Christian life
and presence.
Resolved 2d. That in every relation
of life domestic, socKl, religious and
political Brother Bain was true, honest
and faithful to every duty which that
relation imposed upon him; pure in
heart and liie, assiduous in labor, dilli-
gent in business, zealous in Christian
work, never forgetful of his alleigance
to his Lord and Master, charitable to the
poor, as kiud courteous to thoe in low
station as to those in a higher sphere of
life, honest, manly, clean hearted and
clean handed !
Resolved 3d. That a record be mad
of these resolutions, a copy be furnished
the Raleigh Christian Advocite for pub
lication, and a cojy be sent to the family
of our deceased brother with the as.sur
ance of our sincerest sympathy and col-
dolence for and with them in their great

this crime
It is with peculiar pleasure that I note
this purpose on the part of the good peo
ple of North Carouni to denounce the
dangerous and growing jr tire .if irre
sponsible bodies of iin r., under cover of
darkness and disguises, forcibly usurp
ing the functi'in of our coustkuuotial
tribunals, and pretending to tike the
execution of the laws in their ow n hands.
I am glad to believe that the conservative
and law abiding people of the state have
no sympathy with such unlawful iiih-
ceedings. There is no necessity in this
state to rert to violence to vindicate
our laws or preserve public peace and
order. We have an able and honest
judiciwy, faithful sheriffs and peace
officers, and virtuous citizens, from whom
conscientious jurors cai be selected; to
these the people of the i-tdte may sMcly
entrust the execution of the laws, and i
will be an evil day wh n law less men and
methods shall be permitted to usurp
these functions. I have offered a reward
for the apprehension and punishment of
these offenders.
Very truly yours,
Thomas M. IL.i.t, Governor.
