Thirty Persons, Five of Whom are f Whites, Killed. Trouble Started at a Camp Meeting- Militia Called Into Service. New Orleans, La. , Oct. 28. A ree war that already numbers among its victims thirty white men and negroes i raging in and around Balltown, in Wahington parish, this State, a few miles from the boundary line of Missis sippi, and a company of militiamen from the First Louisiana brigade is being rushed to the scene to put a stop to hostilities. As far as can be gathered from the meager sources of information at pres ent available, the cause of the bitter ness that has led to the outbreak is the determination of the negroes of the region to kill one of their own race who, under orders of the whites, last Wednesday set fire to a pyre about another negro, who was being put to death for a brutal assault upon a white woman and attempted murder. Of the men already killed as a result of several rifle battles that have been going on since yesterday five are whites and the remainder colored. When the fighting begun the colored men met their foes in the ojen, but this after noon several of them fled across the Mississippi line, where the Columbia company of State Guards are stationed to prevent violence in that State, and MANY RESIDENTS f onreltr are thoroiiithly acquainted with. and know tf tulracuioua cure that Dr. Tbarbpr'a LiTer and Wood Sjrup has ma.te.

Mrs. Annie Edson Taylor, fifty years old, went iiver Niagara Falls on the Cana dian side this afternoon ami survived, a feat never before accomplished, and never attempted except in the deliber ate commission of suicide. She made the trip in a barrel. Not only did she survive, but escaped without a broken Ihhih, her only apparent injury being a scalp wound one and a half inches long, a slight concussion of the brain, some shock to her nervous svsteni and bruises about the body. She was conscious when taken out of the barrel. The doctors in attendance upon her to night said that though she was some what hysterical, her condition is not at all serious, and that she probably will be o.it of bed in a few davs. Mrs. .Taylor's trip covered a mile ride through the Canadian rapids be rore sue reaciiea the brink of the preci pice. Her barrel, staunch as a barrel could be made, was twirled and butt'etted through those delirious wa ters, but esaped serious contact with rocks. As it passed through the smoother, swifter waters that rushed over into the abyss, it rode in an al most perpendicular position, with its upper Half out) of the water. As it passed over the brink it rode at an angle of about forty-five degrees on the outer surface of the deluge and descended gracefully to the white foaming waters 158 feet below. True to her calculations, the anvil fastened to the bottom of the barrel kept it foot downward, and so it landed. Had it turned over and landed on its head, Mrs. Taylor's head must have been crushed in and her neck broken. The woman was lifted from the bar rel and half an hour later she lay on a cot at her boarding place, in Niagara Falls, on the American side. She said she would never do it again, but that she was not sorry she did it, "if it would help her financially." She said she had prayed all during the trip except during "a few mo ments' ' of unconsciousness just after her descent. The barrel in which Mrs. Tavlor made the journey is four and one-half feet high and about three feet in diameter. A leather harness and cushions inside protected her bodv. Air was secured through a rubber tube connected with a small opening near ine top or tne barrel. JVIrs. laylor is a school teacher and recently came here from Bay City, Alien. jff!

"If Miss Stone is living, she will be found within ten days. Three differ ent parties are now en route to es tablish communication with the bri gands. Dickinson has seit two young men from Sofia.
