THE CRONIN MURDER.
Chicago, Oct. 11. Three new suspect
were arrested by the police this afternoon
for alleged complicity in the murder of
Dr. Croniu. 1 he jreaiest mystery pre
vails around the criminal court buildiug,
where the men are confined.
At 11:30 tc-niaht seven men were
in the state's attorney's office, presuma
b!y undergoing examination. At that
hoar Attorney Mills came out, and to
the score of waiting reporters reiterated
the statement made by the state's attor
ney early in the evening that absolutely
no information would be given out until
to-morrow.
At midnight Chief Hubbard emerged
from the private office aud went out, but
soon returned with a man bearing a good
supply of eatables. This would indicate
that the secret session is to be an all-night
one.
A little later two detectives went in
with a short, thick set man ol an Irish
look, in tow. This makes ciuc anests to
day and to-niiiht.
Two stories are afloat in resrard to the
matter. One is that some new Bnd ex
ceedingly important information in re
gard to the murder has been discovered,
The other is that nothing lese than a jury'
fixing has come to light. The state, it is
knoivi, has had great apprehension of a
"hung" jurv, but whether or not any of
the eight men sworn in so lar nave actu
ally been approached, could not be defi
nitely learned.
FOREIGN STEAMSHIP SUBSIDIES.
New York, Oct. 11. In an article on
subsidized steamship iiues, the Tribune
this mormnir says: '-Hardly has it been
stated that the new Zanzibar German
line will receive a subsidy of $2,500,000
annually, whpn one is told of the Mexi
can, Macao cc Portuguese line oi racinc
steamers. The promoters of it have just
left Lisbon, where they arracged every
tliicg with the owners ot the Macao line,
and are now on their way to JUcxico.
Steamers will start from Chinese ports
and call st Macao, the Sandwich islands
and San Francisco, and stop at Santa
Ciuz, in Mexico. It will prove to be of
great advantage to the Portuguese colony
which is a rival of Hopg Kong and Can
ton, and possesses, on account of its
geographical situstion, exceptional ad
vantages. Under these circumstance the
new liDe will help greatly and promote
Chinese immigration, inasmuch as Mex
ico is now carrying cn big works, under
taken some years ago, for wbicb it needs
cheap and abundant labor. -
FAILED TO OBEY ORDERS.
Pittsburg, Oct. 11. A collision oc-
cuncd near Bridgeport, Ohio, this morn-
ng between a train carrying about seven
ty miners to the Wheeling Coal Works,
and a freight train. The passenger train
and a portion of the freight train was
demolished.
David Moore, a miner, was killed, four
others were fatally injured. None of the
latter, however, will die, tbeir injuries
being confined to bruises and slight frac
tures. The accident was caused by the failure
of the engiceer of the freight train to obey
orders, lie had been instructed to wait
at the mines until the work train arrived,
but instead pulled out for Bridgeport.
A CONSUL IN TROUBLE.
Washington, Oct. 11. Secreaty Blaine
has cabled William, Baird Lewis, United
States consul at Tangier, to appear at
the state department, Washington, and
meet the cnarses of corruption made
gainst him by Benezuli, a Morocco
merchant. Benezuli came all the way
from Tangier tt- prefer tbo charges.
Simon w0lf and the Solomons, American
members cf the Alliance Israelite Lm-
versal, accompanied Benezuli before Sec
r?tay Blame, when Benezuli yesterday
entered the complaint.

the council lo-ulght it was decided to

A FALSE REPORT.
Boston. Mass., Oct. 11. The Traveller
prints, under the date of beoul Corea,
September 8, a letter from Mrs. Heron,
wife of Dr. Heron, ol iennessee, who was
reported to have been sentenced by the
ing of Corea lor teaching Christianity.
Mrs Heron had just recovered from a
dangerous illnes. She says that the
king would not do what has been charg
ed against him, and adds that tbeir only
anger is from the ignorant and super
stitious lover classes, bhe siys that
neither she nor her husband are teaching
Christianity, as it had been expressly
forbidden. They live in "Lopes ot a
treaty revision which will allow them to
do so.
DESERVED A BETTER FATE.
Astoria, Oct. 11. Evan D. McPhce,
working at Boyle's logging camp on the
Little Walluski river, a tributary ot Lew
is and Clarke river, was drowned last eve
ning about 4 o'clock by falling off a raft
of loss. He was not seen to fail, but was
missed by some of the loggers, who com
menced a search for the body, but it was
not found until 8 o'clock this morning.
About half an hour before he was missed
he saved from drowning a fellow-workman
who bad fallen Irora the same rait of
logs. The deceased was a native of Nova
Scotia, aged 32 years, and leaves a wile
nd child. The tuneral will take pi ace

here to-day by Axtell, a three-year eld, in
212, lowering the record seconds.
Colonel Conic;, of Chicago, luie to-night

ter, for $105,000. Andy Walsh, of Hart
ford, and John Madden, ot Lexington,
offered Williams $101,000 for the colt,
aud had a certified check for that amount.
This he refused, and afterwards accepted
Colonel Conley's ofler with much reluc
tance. This is the highest price ever
paid in the world for a horse of any des
cription.

general to Japan between 1874 and 18S5,

railroad disaster.
San Diego, Oct. 13. The train which
left this city shortly after midnight this
morning for Los Angeles and the East
met with an accident just beyond Del
mar, about twenty-five miles out. It had
been raining hard all night, ana while
nassiocr through one of the cuts the
whole side of the hill caved down upon
the engine and baggage car, throwing
them from the track aud partly burying
them from sight. Tho engineer was im
prisoned in bis cab and badly scalded.
The fireman saved himself by jumping,
and was unhurt. None of the occupants
of the other cars were injured.
A relief train was sent from this city
about 3 o'clock this morning, and return
ed with the uninjured cars and passen
gers, arriviug in San Diego about noon
to day. The road is said to be .in a bad
condition above the landslide, and no
trains have reached the scene of the acci
dent on the other side since the 4 o'clock
train of yesterday afternocn. The rail
road company sent out a wrecking crew
this morning to clear the track. It is
thought the trains will be running again
to-morrow, if no further slides occur.
The weather js still very threatening.
defrauding the government.
Los Angeles, Oct. 13. For some time
past the secret service department has
entertained suspicions that a quantity of
brandy has been maniiiactuied in ana
around Sauta Ana and Oranjre, on which
the government has received no duty.
B. M. Thomas, assistant special agent
of the secret service office on the Pacific
coast, has been instituting inquiries into
the matter, aud to-day it is learned, has
secured sufficient evidence to break up a
ring of illicit distillers who by retailing
brauuv at $1 a trallon, have virtually des
troyed the trade of the manufucturs who
pnid the government a duty of 90 cents
per gallon
relief at last:
Seattle. Wn.. Oct. 13. News that
the Northern Pacific railroad had re
moved the old freight discrimination
aguinst Seattle by taking off the 4 cent
arbitrary rate to and from Stuck Junction,
was net Ii-ss gratifying than surprising to
the people ol this city. In anticipation
of an early connection with the East by
other means the city had ceased all
agitation ot t' e question, that formerly
so vitally affected its commercial interests,
and submitted quietly to the imposition
of additional rates until relief should
come.
SENATOR MANDERSON.
Washington, Oct. 13 Senator Man-
derson, in returning the money paid him
under the rerating of his pension wrote a
long letter to Secretary Noble. After
stating that the rerating was unsolicited
by him, the senator says that on August
23d, he wrote io the commissioner dcclin
ing to decide the question of acceptance
or jejection of the proposed rerating un
til a medical examination by a board to
be appointed by the pension office had
determined the extent of his present dis
ability. v
On September 14th, he wrote Secretary
Noble that no examining board having
been appointed, be desired a full aud
searchiug examination, to determine
whether the action taken by the pension
tike was warranted by the rules; that
he wished the strictest construction of the
law and could not consent to any strain
ing of points.
THE JOHNSTOWN RELIEF. FUND.
New Yoke, Oct. 11 A Ilerald corres
pondent from Johnstown, Pa., writes that
considerable dissatisfaction is expressed
at the basis on which the funds ior the
eiief of the flood sufferers are to be dis
tributed. The payments to widows have
been completed, the total amount in two
payments being $107,803, and to orphans
was awarded $05,000, the most of which
Will be used in purchasing annuities.
The balance of the great relief fund will
go to others not so neeoy. It is said that
the larger part ot the money will go to
wealthy and weli-to-do people.
THE CRONIN PLOT DEVELOPS.
Chicago, Oct. 13. A secret conference

totully destroyed by fire.
A REVOLUTION PREDICTED.
Chicago, Oct. 13. When the stars and
stripes were raised at the socialistic mass
meeting here this atternoon, it was greet
ed with hisses. There were probably a
thousand men and women in the ball.
The banner was brought out by the
suitor, who fastened it 60 that the folds
of the flag fell on the stage at the feet of
those who were to be speakers, and as he
id so the hissing increased in volume.
The red flag was then unfurled and fast
ened on the opposite side of the platform.
mmediately the hissing ceased and was
aucceded by a loud burst of applause.
A DRUNKEN DANCE.
Chehalis, Wn., Oct 13. At the house
of a man named Barnctt, a mile from Ol

A SINGLE TRACK RAILWAY. .
New Yotk, Oct. 14 A railroad with
one track has been pnt into successful
operation at Coney Island. It is limited
to experimental purposes at present.
The Boynton engine, simply a steam
bicycle, is used. Its tandem wheels are
placed directly under it, and, like the
similarly arranged wheels of the coaches,
they run on a single rail. The oasseoger
coaches are built two storied high, and
are divided into compartments, each
holding four people.
U'gh in the air, above the rail on which
the engine and cars run, there is a guard
rail supported on crane-necked posts.
This is several feet above the two story
cars. The arms reaching np from the
body ot the car, as well as from the en
gine, support small horizontal wheels,
wbicb clutch the guard rail aud keep the
train on the single rail. The guard rail
bears no weight and the inventor declares
that the side pressure is very slight.
GIBBS HAT BE IN SEATTLE.
Seattle, Oct. 14. The officers here
were last night notified that H. E. Gibbs,
the Pullman car porter, who 6bot McDe
vitts in Portland, was enpposed to be in
Seattle aud detectives were set immedi
ately upon his trail.
In some way trends of Gibbs heard
that the police were making an active
hunt for him, and they took hira from
Whitcchapel, where he had been biding,
in a disreputable dive on Jackson street,
and there he cut off the brass buttons of
bis Pullmau uniform and otherwise dis
guised himself. Gibbs in his new garb
managed to elude the officers. This is
the story told by some who claim to
know, but it is questionable if Gibbs is
or has been in Seattle.
A FISHERMAN DROWNED.
Port Townsend, Oct. 14. Harry Nel
son, a Danish fisherman, nnmarried, was
accidcntlv drowned yesterday iu Port
Townsend bay, by the accidental capsiz
ing ot a sailboat while out with a party

THE WOUNDED MAN DIED.
CHEnALis,Wn.,Oct. 14. Henry Julius,
the man who was shot by Ed Patter
son at a dance here Saturday evening,
died this morning. The bullet entered
on the left side, near the heart, aud
pierced the lett lung. Patterson gave
himself up to the sheriff of Cowlitz coun

MONTANA REPUBLICAN.
San Francisco, Oct. 14. A special
from Helena, Mont., says: In counting
the votes in Silver Bow county to day
the board of canvassers threw out a pre
cinct which gave 174 Democratic majori
ty. By this action the Republicans secure
the entire legislative delegation in that
county, numbering 11 members, giving
them a majority on joint ballot in the
legislature. Returns on their face show
that the Democrats would have had five
majority on joint ballot, with one mem
ber a tie.
The grounds on which the precinct
was rejected are that there were three in
stead of five judges of election; that the
count was conducted by three judges in
secret, the clerks being excluded, and
that the returns showed more votes
counted than polled. Judge DeWolfe
has been appealed to by the Democrats
for a writ of mandamus to compel the
board of canvassers to count in the re
jected precinct.

From Mr. C. L. Phillips we learn that
the grand lodge of the Knights of Pythias
was very hospitably entertained ' by the
good citizens of Astoria. On Tuesday
evening the visitors were entertained by a
grand ball in the opera house. Wednes
day evening found the outside delegations
tilled Willi pleasurable emotions ana
clams the result of a clambake. Thurs
day, the Kuights wandered about the
decks of the Albatross, tbe goverumcnt
deep sea fishing vessel, poked their canes
and umbrellas iuto foroidden spots and
corners, and made life a burden generally
to the officers and men of that luckless
hip. On the same day a free ride over
the bit of railroad from Fort Stevens to
the ocean and out iuto it, was tendered
the foreigners. Messrs. Phillips and
Michell among others availed themselves
of the chance, and as Ihe little narrow
guage cars crawled out on the spider-like
trestle, way np about 40 tcet above the
seething, boiling rush of the outgoing
tide, Mr. Phillips says they held on tight,
and we believe him. The whole affair
from first to last was very enjoyable, and
Astoria and Astorians deserve credit for
leir generous hospitality. The next an-.
uual meeting of the grand lodge, K. of P
will be held in this city.
The lovers of the artistic can have their
esthetic tastes gratified and their hearts
made glad by an inspection ol the nne
work lately done on the lower oanels ot
one of the doors iu the office of Mays &
Huntington. It is probably the only spec
imen of the kind in the United States,
original and uuiquein conception, as well
as startling and bold in execution. I he
artist is the dog Prince, whose solemn and
lately walk lias always been peculiarly
edifying to us, except on one occasion
when us we were going to lunch we met
him on the sidewalk near the residence of
Mrs. Lulu Sampson. He was running
then, running as if his whole heart was iu
the busiuess, as if he had just remem
bered an imperative engagement some
where. A blas,t just fired near Mr. Dufur's
new residence niny have bad something to
do with his haste. But we wander. It
seems that a night or two since the dog
was forgotteu when the occupants of the
office closed up for the day. Prince dis
dains idleness, and so by way of somn
thing to occuoy himself, he turned his at
tention to the door, especially the lower
part. Starting in with a few bold dashes
he produced an ensemble, which more
nearly resembles a map of the Franco
Prussian war struck by-lightning, than
anything else. The perspective may be a
trifle fau.ty, but the foreshortening is good
and the chiaroscuro particularly line.
We notice that a large part of the bottom
one of the door casings is removed. The
dog has doubtless taken it home with him,
to give the subject more study and a better
treatment than his limited time and dim
light would allow him, while it was still
fast to the bouse.
