BONFIRE ON TRACK,
Bandits Hold Up the Cannonball
Passenger Train.
ENGINE WENT THROUGH FIRE.
Some Loose Ties Finally Caught tbe
Pilot of Engine and Brought It to
a Standstill Robbers Dynamite the
Safe Less Than $1,000 Secured
Posse Organized and Now in Pur
suit of Bobbers, Who Are Thought
- to Be Amateurs.
St Louis. Nov 22. News has been
received here of the holding up of the
Iron Mountain Cannonball passenger
train, north bound, at Gifford, Ark, a
few miles this side of Malvern Junc
tion. The hold-up occurred at 7:30 o'clock
last evening and was participated in
by half a dozen men.
The bandits had built a huge bonfire
on the track, undoubtedly figuring that
it would cause the engineer to bring
the train to a standstill. He, however,
scenting an attempted robbery, opened
the throttle and sought to push
through the fiery obstruction.
Several ties, "of which the fire was
made, caught in the pilot and soon
brought the train to a stop. Instantly
three masked men ordered the engineer
and driver to leave the engine at once.
Another robber went on the side of
the car. hailed the conductor, and or
dered him to remain inside. Each or
der was obeyed.
While the four robbers were stand
ing guard and occasionally firing a shot
to frighten the passengers, their two
accomplices entered the express car,
and ordered Messenger Samuel It. Av
ery to "step aside or get to the other
coiner."
The large safe was charged five
times with dynamite, each explosion
making a terrific noise and tearing off
nortions of the car. A -large hole was
bored into the door of the safe, but
an entrance could not be effected. The
robbers finally announced that they had
no more dynamite and then they gave
up the task of forcing open the door.
Then, picking up the local express
box and several packages, they ran to
their horses, which had been hitched
near by. and rode rapidly away.
Xo attempt was made to disturb or
molest the passengers, except for an
occasional shot at an inquisitive per
son who peered out of a car window.
Messenger Avery was badly hurt
about the head and face by flying
splinters hurled about by the dynamite
explosions. One side of his face -was
terribly lacerated, and several teeth
were knocked out. He was.sent'to
his home in St Louis on the same train.
The top and one side of the express
car were shattered to splinters.-
TIip sliorifT of Hot Siiriiiirs ronntv
organized a posse and started at once
iu pursuit of the robbers. The train
crew say the bandits are amateurs, as
they went at their work in a bungling
fashion. All wore heavy masks. The
trainmen say the small box carried off
by the robbers contained about $500.
It is positively known that the rob
bers secured several sacks of silver
containing $190.
THE IRON TRADE.
Healthy Activity and Plenty of Good
Business.
Cleveland, O., Nov 22. The Iron
Trade Review this week will say:
"One of the surest indications of
the wave of prosperity that has been
sweeping through the iron trade in
the past three weeks is the general
depreciation of anything like a boom.
The stream of orders has been so
steady from every quarter recently as
to suggest the danger that last years'
excitement might be repeated. Strong
as the situation is from every point of
view it does not appear as yet that the
mistakes of 1899 will be repeated.
The time of year is against such repe-
titions; producing capacity is ample
for all probable needs and foreign iron
' markets are receding, so that the out
flow of export steel is likely to be
checked.
"The past week has given added evi
dence of healthy aetivity in all dis
tricts and iu all lines of production.
After several weeks of comparative
quiet, the steel rail market took on
new life. Pittsburg and Chicago be
tween them booking 150,000 to 200.000
tons of rails, Including a large order
from the C. G. and Q. railroad, of
which "Pittshilrir sf-nrwl 71 1 noI tnns !
' It is probable that 750.000 tons of rails
have now been booked for 1901 deliv
ery and it is known that large addi
tional orders will be placed in the
next few weeks."
COPPER STOCK TRANSFERRED.
New York. Nov 22. It was learned
last evening that the stock of the Amal
gamated Copper company . will - be
transferred from the curb- market to

listed securities of the New York Stock
'Exchange, it Is reported, application to

THE LEAGUE TROUBLE.
Fight Between the National and Amer
ican Injuring the Game.
Washington, Nov 22. The Post this
nioi'umg says:
President Nick Young, of the Nation
al league, is somewhat confused by the
latest expression of Ban Johnson, the
American league magnate. Mr John
son has been talking a good deal of
late and in his latest pronunciamento
he takes the situation that the Na
tional league is preparing to fight the
American league.
"As a matter of fact," said .Mr
Young, "the Xational league has not
ollicially, or in any other way, con
sidered the American league. The
league managers one and all have
evinced the liveliest svninjitli v with
has been further from our minds tHftn
the idea of opposing Mr Johnston and
his associates. A fight might not
greatly benefit us. but it certainly
would put an end to the American
league and greatly injure the game it
self. "Mr Johnson seems to think we want
the American league to be a minor
league and to sue us for protection. We
have no such thought. We are will
ing to recognize the American league
as on an equality with us.
"We want no fights. The fight in
1890 cost $1,500,000 and the tight in
I'M cost $100,000. Many of the peo
ple who lost the money have never re
covered from it. and the game itself
has not regained its previous popular
ity. "I hope to see the American league
a success and the National league will
do all it can to make it a success."
TO ANTARCTIC REGIONS.
Expedition Will Explore Regions
. South of the Pacific.
Chicago, Nov 22. Dr John W. Greg
ory, en route from Melbourne. Aus
tralia, to England, to lead an expedi
tion into the Antarctic regions, has ar
rived in Chicago. Prof Gregory, who
is scientific director of the National
Antarctic expedition, visited the Uni
versity of Chicago and held a confer
ence with I)r T. Chamberlain, head of
the department of geology, and Frof
Rollin Salisbury of that department.
Prom them the director of the Antarc
tic expedition sought advice on cer
tain questions relating to the study of
glaciers, which will form a part of
the mission of the expedition.
Prof Gregory will endeavor to do in
the Antarctic glacier work similar to
that which Professors Chamberlain
and Salisbury did in Greenland.
The National Antarctic expedition,
which will be sent by English soci
eties, aided by the British government,
will co-operate with the German expe
dition, and the two will make a thor
ough scientific studv of all the rpgions
within the Antarctic circle as far as
possible. The English expedition will
explore the regions south of the Pa
cific and Australia, and the German
the region south of tbe Antarctic.
The English expedition will be start
ed from London in August and is ex
pected to return in three years.
WILL ASK FOR PARDON
But Many Prominent Lawyers
Will
Oppose the Petition.
Augusta. Me. Nov 22. It is believed
that the petition for the pardon of
David L. Stain and Oliver Cromwell,
who are serving jail sentences for the
murder of John Barron, the treasurer
of the Dexter Savings bank, will be
considered at the meeting of the gov
ernor and council to be held next Mon
day, when the matter is scheduled to
come up, on account of a great amount
of other business.
Lntil a few days ago it was con
sidered likely that there would be lit
tle opposition to the petitioners. Re
cently, however, there have been many
indications of activity on the part of
the state and now it is expected that
the prosecution will present a strong
case ?n opposition to the pardon.
Many prominent lawyers, including
Hon Frederick H. Appleton of Ban
gor, who was the county attorney at
the tim of the conviction, and Hon
Orville D. Baker of Augusta, attorney
general at the time, are mentioned as
among those who will be heard on be
half of the state.

Arrived at Marseilles at 1 0:45
This Morningv
Big Demonstration By The People
Kruger Made An Address Iu Duteh
He Said He Had Fought With
Savages But The Present AVar Was
The Worst He Had Ever Been Iu.
Marseilles, Nov 22. Paul Kruger,
former president of the South African
republic, landed here at 10:45 a. in.
The weather was beautiful and the
great Boer leader received a magni
ficent demonstration. The whole route
from the landing place to his hotel was
crowded with people. He appeared
to be in" good health and repeatedly
took off his hat in acknowledging the
acclamations of the people.
Replying to the addresses of wel
come of the presidents of the Paris
and Marseilles committees. Mr Kruger
spoke in Dutch and in a low voice,
but accompanied his words with ener
getic movements of his hat. which lie
held iu his right hand. After thank
ing the committees for the warmth of
the reception accorded him and ex
pressing gratitude for the sympathy
lie had received from the French gov
ernment, lie spoke of the war as ter
rible and barbarously conducted by
the British, lie said:
"I have fought with savages but. the
present war is even worse. We will
never surrender. We are determined
to tight to the last extremity and if the
republics of the Transvaal and Orange
Free State lose their independence it
will be because they have lost every
man, woman and child."
Mr Kruger cannot but be elated at
the warmth of his reception by the
people of Marseilles to-day. . He may
be said to have borne on an lrresista-
ble wave of enthusiasm from the land
ing stage to his hotel. The broad
streets and boulevards through which
the route lay presented a perfect sea
of human beings, all gathered there
prompted by the unanimous desire to
welcome the aged Boer statesman.
From the moment the white, twelve
oared barge left the side of the Gelder
land. with President Kruger sitting iu
her stern, surrounded by the Boer rep
presentatives, including Dr Leyds and
Messrs Fischer and Wessels. a storm
of cheering broke out and never ceased
until Mr Kruger had entered his hotel.
Even then a vast concourse of people
remained in front of the building
until Mr Kruger appeared on the bal
cony, where he had to remain for some
time, uncovered, acknowledging the
acclamations of his thousands of ad
mirers, who continued cheering until
they were hoarse with shouting.
The lighting declaration which Mr
Kruger made at the landing stage dis
pelled at once any impression that lie
intends to accept a compromise from
the British government. His . an
nouncement was greeted with a roar
of cheers and cries of "Vive Kruger:"
"Vive Les Boers;" "Vive La Liberte."
The scene at the landing place was a
repetition of that described in yester
day's dispatches, but even more ani
mated, as the docks of all the steamers
in tlie Lyons Basin were crowded with
sightseers. The crowd began to swell
to great proportions as the news spread
through the city that the Gelderland
had actually entered the harbor.
Tlie morning broke clear, with a
cold northwest wind blowing..
The Gelderland was sighted several
miles out at 7 o'clock in the morning,
and Dr Leyds and Messrs Fischer and
Wessels immediately proceeded to the
Dutch warship in a steam launch and
soon afterwards boarded her. A con
ference between the Boer leaders en
sued. In tlie meanwhile the Gelderland was
slowed down, entered tlie outer har
bor at 10 o'clock and fired a salute of
twenty-one guns, to which a shore bat
tery responded.
POLITICAL TURMOIL.
Concerning the Election of Member
of Canadian Parliament.
Charlottetown, P. E. I.. Nov 22. Al
though the elections for the Canadian
parliament were held two weeks ago,
this province is still in a political tur
moil, partly due to doubt concerning
the election of a member of the Cana
dian parliament in the west division of
Prince county as the result of the
theft of a ballot box. After the elec
tion Edward Hackett (conservative)
was declared elected by a majority of
three votes. A re-count requested by
A. McClellan (liberal) was to have tak
en place yesterday, but it was discov
ered that one of the ballot boxes wras
missing. It appeared that twenty-seven
ballot boxes were-put aboard a
train at Alberton, but one was stolen
from the train while in transit. A
search along the line disclosed the
missing box beside the railroad track,
but the ballots were gone. There is
no clue to the persons who tampered
with the box. and there is much spec
ulation as to the outcome of the con
test for the seat. The government
officials are conducting a rigorous in
vestigation. . BOERS AGAIN DEFEATED. . ,.

year, and $1.50 per day for the other
four months. Women and children are
to get from $10 jto 15 per month.
The employers are to furiush rent,

hoped by tlie sugar men here that this

which will put an end to the necessity
of using Japanese, who now constitute
the greater portion of 'labor employed
on the plantations. '

Chinese Servants Led the Way While
Parents Carried Sleeping Children
In Their Arms The Greens Were
Members of the British-China Inland
Mission.
Pao Ting Fn, Oct 23. When the story
of the period of blood jmd massacre
in China is told, few of its cuapters
will bo aM brilliant as the narrative of
the Green party, who wera found al
most dead by the allkd expedition.
The tale of their hardship and abuse
and almost miraculous- preservation
has leaked to the outer world by p.eee
meal, but to the correspondent of tha
Associated Press its ueiaiis of suffer
ing and cruelty were told tor the first
time by .Miss Greig.
Mr and Mrs Green, members of the
British-China Inland 'mission, with
their two children, a boy and a gill,
aged 5 and : years, and Miss Greig.
an assistant, were stationed at lluui
Lu. a small town 120 miles south of
this place. During the first week of
July news of massacres of missiunaires
were received in Pao Ting Fu. and also
news of tlie destruction of the mis
sion at Shun Ti Fu, Chao Chi and.
Shen Yi, and of the moving of the
troops from the Shan Si province to
wards Tica Tsin to attack the foreign
ers. On hearing of the stat. of affairs
the little party moved away to tlie
mountains on the advice of the man
darin to go in t j hiding: They took
with them only a few bare necessities,
carrying the children asleep in their
inns and were conducted by two or
three Chiutse servants to a Chinese
temple, a short distance back in the
hills.

LAUGHING IX MERIDEN.
Tlie Meriden Record says that local
militiamen laugh at the idea of re
electing Timothy F. Callahan colonel
of the Second regiment. They claim
the line officers would not consider
such a. move. One reason is that if lie
was nominated he would not. be ac
cepted by brigade officers. Tlie New
Haven Leader said last night: "Cap
tain Donovan is the senior captain of
the Second regiment, and it was stat
ed to-day that tlie majorship belongs
to him by right of precedence.' Cap
tain Oscar li. Bradley of Company I
Meriden. is next in order of seniority
and is followed by Captain Reynolds
of the Light Guard, this city. Wheth
er or not these officers will make an
effort to get the berth of major is not
known." Friends of Captain Bradley
claim that he will not look for major
ship until his time arrives. When he
becomes senior captain he may consid
er promotion. Lieutenant-Colonel Su
cher will undoubtedly succeed Colonel
Callahan.

AVinsted. Nov 22, He.n.ry Overton.
iO--yeai-s of age. a well-known citizen
of this place, died n't his home last
night after an illness of seven months.
For a number of years he was in the

ditions to the Arctic regions. He also
served in tlie Civil war and was a
member of the Second Connecticut'
heavy regiment.
CONDITION OF CZAR.
I.ivadia, Nov 22. The eznr passed a
fairly good day yesterday. During
the night his majesty slept a little.
Early in the morning the patient's con
dition was good. His strength was

CITY NEWS
R. E. Parent, of Boston, who is con
nected in an official capacity with the
American School of Correspondence,
is visiting friends in town.
The third annual sociable and dance
of the Merrimac Athletic club will take
place at Speedwell hall to-night. A
pleasant time is assured all who at
tend. Mrs Ann Dunne died this morning
at the home of her daughter. Mrs Le
roy Stevens, on Ben Mohr. Besides
Mrs Stevens she leaves three sons.
James Dunne of New Haven and John
and Thomas Dunne of Bridgeport. The
remains will be taken to Bridgeport
for burial in charge of Undertaker
Mnlville.
There are several cases of scarlet
fever and measles in the eastern part
of the city. A well known physician
told a. Democrat reporter to-day that
there is such a close resemblance this
year between measles and scarlet fev
er that, half of the cases cf the former
are being reported as the latter .
It was reported about town to-day
that tlie American Ring company, had
purchased tlie vacant plant of Rogers
& Hamilton and that the purchasers
intended to remove there in the near
future. Superintendent F, W. Chesson
of the American:-Ring company was
asked about the matter this forenoon
and stated that there was .absolutely
no truth in tlie rumor nnd that he had
no idea as to the origin of it. "Some
time ago," said Mr Chesson, 'they had
us located in Waterville: now it is in
the North end. and the Lord --only
knows where they'll send us next. The
facts in tlie case are that we are doing
business at, the old stand and we are
likely to remain there for some time
to come, if some one does, not drive
us out. something, wliic'h. in my judg
ment, is highly "improbable." ,

This ought to satisfy the most skep
tical that Tammany is bound to be one
of our permanent institutions, not
withstanding all reports to the con
trary. It was stated some time ago
that" the society had gone out of busi
ness for keeps, bnt at that time a. com
mittee was at work preparing the con
stitution and by-laws which are to gov
ern it in the-future. One of the mem
bers told a reporter of this paper last
night that the association intends to
take hold of other matters as well as
politics and that if things turn out
as they expect they will Tammany
will be one of the bidders' on citv con-
, tracts next year. He said that it was
, the purpose of the corporation to en
gage in any legitimate work that there
is an honest dollar in. and that while
it had nor yet been definitely decided
whether it will take big contracts or
not. lie felt confident that it- would
make a bid for some work in that line
and that at the present time the as-
sociation is better equipped to do busi"
ness and is far more responsible than
some of the contractors about town
that have been in the business for
yea rs.
HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF '01.
Meeting Held To-day Appropriate
Class Tin to Be Selected. '
The class of 1901 of the Waterbury
High school held a meeting to-dav and
appointed a committee to select a class
pin, thus creating a new custom at the
High school, which will, no doubt, be
followed by succeeding classes. It
was formerly tlie custom to select a
pin at almost the end of the year, but
the present class doesn't approve of
that custom and accordingly has intro
duced a new innovation. The com
mittee appointed is composed of the
following: Tlie Misses Bulier. Man-
ville and Johnson and Messrs Murrav
and Devine. It was also voted to have
llie class colors this year and every year
hereafter the same as the school colors.
white and blue. This change will also
meet with the general approval of High.
school students and graduates alike.
Principal Wilby presided at the meet
ing, which was exceptionally harmo
nious. ASSOCIATED PRESS DIRECTORS.
