Frank" S.tter, an ambitious scribbler,
yet in his teens, was publicly horse
whipped at Holland by five indignant
citizens, who tied hiui to a telegraph
X)olo and laid on the lashes till lie
howled. The assailants were disguised
in women's clothing, fcdoter was cor
respondent for the Mascot, of Grand
Kapids, a sensational sheet, which had
recently printed much vile and obscene
matter affecting Holland people.
As a sequel to tho horsewhipping
episode the following prominent men
were arrested charged with assault and
battery: S. II. Arleth, tiirard A. Kant
crs, Pen Pilliugs, John J. lladden,
and Stephen Mohr. An enormous
crowd of working men held an indig
nation meeting on the street as a pro
test of the assault on JSloter. They as
sembled near tho postoffice, where
guns were lired. A lire built and
threats and wild speeches made against
city ollicers who would allow a gang
of men to vent its anger on a boy
simply becauso they were wealthy.
When things were getting hot Marshal
Vanry attempted to arrefat a man, and
tho crowd rallied in support of the
fellow. The marshal called for his
deputies and they succeeded in jailing
tho man after being struck several
times with clubs, stones and fists.
Tho mob followed to the jail and
threatened to burn or break it open
unless tho man was released, and the
officers were compelled to comply.
The man was hoistod to the shoulders
of his victorious friends and carried
back to the postoffice where tho mob
reassembled. Excitement is at white
heat, nnd violence may be the outcome.

WAlt CLOUDS DARKEN
THE EGYPTIAN SITUATION MAY
CAUSE A EUROPEAN WAR.
Kn&land I'ludu Much Opposition In Male
In Preparations for Another Soudan
Campaign Franco la Ileeomins Very
I'neasy, und May Cause Trouble.
Recent events in northeastern Af
rica have brought forth tho strongest
probability of a clash between the Eu
ropean poweas interested in that
country. The terrible reverses of tho
Italian arms at Adowa aud the an
nouncement of Great Pritain of an
other campaign against tho Mahdists
iu tho Soudan, beginning with a move
ment upon Dongola, have attracted
tho eyes of the world, especially when
it is so clearly seen that the Pritish
nro operating in unison with the
driebund. Franco has great interests
on tho upper Nile and fears that the
Lgyptian advance to Dongola covers a
Pritish advance to Khartoum and to
Uganda and an interference with her
colonial expansion iu Central Africa.
Tho Pritish occupation of Egypt is
sufficiently galling in itself, but more
so in its threats to French plans in Af
rica beyond Egypt. M. Perthelot,
France's minister of foreign affairs in
the cabinet meeting that he had asked
the Pritish ambassador, tho marquis
of Dufferin, for information regarding
the proposed advance of Pritish-Egyp-tian
troops up the Nile and had
pointed out to him the serious conse
quences of such an advance. This
warning note may bo a preliminary to
more decided steps.
The government and people of
France are beginning to realize that
the recent conferences at Perlin be
tween tho Austrian minister for for
eign affairs, Count Goluchowski; tho
Italian ambassador at Perlin, Count
Lanza Pi Pusca. and tho German im
perial chancellor. Prince llohenlohe,
under the auspices of Emperor William
of Germany, and with Great Pritain
a party to the understanding
arrived at, had more signifi
cance than was generally admitted.
The rearrangement of tho dreibund
with Great Pritain as an active instead
of a silent partner in the arrangement
was evidently only the first step in the
direction of attempting to make alter
ations in tho map of Africa with tho
consent or support of tho dreibund.
As one of tho guaranteeing powers
to the Egyptian bondholders, France
has more than tho usual interest of
the other powers in the disposal
of Egyptian revenues and she
may refuse to consent to the
coat of the Nile campaign being
charged to tho Egyptian budget.
France is not deciding upon the course
she will pursue without a full under
standing with her Russian ally, and
it is announced that numerous tele
grams have passed between Paris and
St. Petersburg on tho subject. It is
feared, however, even though tho dis
sent of Russia and France should hold
and the commissionerson the Egyptian
debt should not vote the sum required
out of the Egyptian surplus, Great
Pritain would herself supply the
money and men and make tho whole
project a distinctively Pritish instead
of Egj'ptian enterprise, occupy tho
Soudan in her own name instead of
that of Egypt and enter upon further
agressive action in Africa.
The ItritUli IJnjIn to See the Danger.
A London dispatch says: Tho minis
terial statement and discussion in tho
house of commons 'ally establishes
that the Pritish advance upon the
Soudan denotes the iniatiouof a policy
by the Pritish government which may
be fraught with most far-reaching and
possibly disastrous consequences. Ar
thur Palfour, speaking for the cabinet,
practically admitted that Dongola
would probably not bo the destination
but only the halting place of tho
Anglo-Egypt'an forces. His allusion to
the desirability of bringing Pritish rule
to the Soudan were interpreted as in
dicating that the English government
is bent upon a war, not of defense, but
of conquest of that whole section.
Unless popular outcry stays Salisbury's
hand it may well happen that the long
expected casus belli, which is to bring
about a general European cataclysm,
may be provided, not by trouble at
Constantinople, in the Palkans, or in
the cast, but by the clas.hingof French,
German and Pritish interests in Africa,
and especially iu tho race now begun
in good earnest, for the possession of
the unappropriated portion of the val
ley of the upper Nile.

tho Curtis bill to abolish the death penalty in
all cases whore it is prescribed in tho federal
statute Mi in nuniberi. save in cases of mur
der and rape under sections MM) und b'.U.i of the
revised statutes. The bill makes no changes
in the yenalties that can bo inflicted by mili
tary or naval court martial. The bill failed to
puss for want of a quorum. Tiie committee on
elections ot President und Vice President re
ported favorably the bill introduced by Mr.
Corliss, of Michigan, providing for tho election
of Senators by a direct vote of the people.
Sorno amendments of minor importance were

The closing clay of the stormy Ken
tucky legislature came and passed
without the election ofa United States
senator. Among the last act was the
offering of a resolution indorsing the
action of the governor in calling out
the militia. Amid the most uproiir
ous confusion tho resolution was
adopted. On motion of Hon. Cy

nally, forcibly, everlastingly and per
petually, and for all time dissolved,
never to meet again. Vlu,n the mo

Venezuelan Mtu.wlon Clearing Up.
London: It is understood here that
Senor Andrade, the Venezuelan min
ister at Washington, has now decided
to recognize tho Yuruan incident ns
separate from the boundary question
and hopes are expressed that his en
tente will lead to an agreement upon
a scheme for the settlement of the
boundary dispute by direct negotia
tions between lircat Hritain and Vene
zuela. It is regarded as certain that
the United States will cordially sup
port such an agreement.
Harmony prevailed at the Populist
convention at Hutchinson, Kas. The
resolutions adopted reaffirm the Omaha
platform. A special resolution on the
money question for union of all silver
forces of the country was passed.
Sentiment has developed in favor of
Caldwell or Tillman for President,
with a combination of friends of silver
on one ticket, though no instrtuctions
wero given to delegates.

To Kink Light Out L'ar!tnra by X Ry.
Several important discoveries have
been made in connection with X rays
by Stephen II. lhnmens, of New York,
who claims to have succeeded in ob
taining the rays from tho ordinary
sunbeam, ami has taken excellent
pictures therewith. Ho is now trying
to turn the X rays into ordinary light,
aud if he succeeds wonders may be
worked later. It may bo possible to
light a dark room by using the waste
rudiaut energy of tho boiling tea ket
tle or tho ordinary radiator, or by col
lecting and turning into light the X
rays of the darkness itself. Dr. Em
mons and his son have invented an in
strument which is now being con
structed to enable surgeons, by means
of X rays, to see the interior of limbs
or bodies of their patients, instead of
examining them on a photographic
plate. This instrument he culls tho
"photoscope." The principle is that
on which Edison and other experi
menters have acted iu seeing through
Crunt u th t Cab in Ouestlon.
During tho debato on the Cuban
question in the United States senate,
many allusions were made both by
Senator Sherman and Senator Hill as
to the attitude of President (Irant and
Hamilton Fish, then secretary of state
on tho question, which was an import
ant one during tho former Cuban war.
On the authority of diaries in the pos
session of Hamilton l' ish, son of the
late secretary, it is shown that Presi
dent Grant had at one time, under the
circumstances of a pending negotiation
at Madrid, been inclined to recognize
the belligerency of Cuba: but on Juno
13, 1S70, tho opinion of the President
and tho cabinet was unanimous that
there wore not facts to justify the
declaration of belligerency, and that
the satisfaction of tho President with
the Cuban policy of his administration,
and its effects upon the country and
tho Republican party, found expression
a few weeks later in thanks to tho
secretary of state for whatever share
in it may have been due to his wisdom
Ilritlsh Venezuelan Claim Shaky.
A document which will have an im
portant bearing on the Venezuelan
dispute has been submitted to the
Venezuelan commission. This docu-'
ment is a geographical work of two
volumes, published in 182-', and is by
Prof. Myers, of the Royal Military
academy, Woolwich, Eng., and an offi
cer of the llritish government. Py
virtue of his official position, ho had
access to all Pritish archives, and pub
lished his work just eight years after
tho cession made to England by Holland,-of
tho three settlements of De
marara, Jlcrlico and Esequibo. In
this geography, which is a very ex
haustive and complete work, and which
was the standard authority of its day,
it is both stated on the map and re
peated several times in the text that
the Essequibo river was tho frontier
boundary between Dutch, now Pritish
Guiana, and Venezuela.
Six Killed by a I'owder Mill Kxplniiion.
A terrific explosion occurred at tho
Lallin-Kand powder mill at llifton, X.
Y., and the concussion was felt over
six miles. Five men were blown to
pieces, and it was with difficulty that
the identification of the missing could
be made. About ."0 men wero em
ployed at the mill, and many of them
were hurt. In all 30,001) pounds of
powder were destroyed and the loss to
the company is placed at 30,000.
McKinley Goes, In Wisconsin.
Milwaukee entertained tho Wiscon
sin Republican convention, which was
an enthusiastic gathering. Protection,
reciprocity and sound money gold
and silver on equality wero the key
notes of tho resolutions. The dis
tinguished public services of Hon.
Win. McKinley were commended and
the delegates "were instructed to use
all reasonable effort to secure his nom
ination for the presidency.
The light to elect a senator by tho
Kentucky legislature occupied the en
tire session and then failed of that
object and left the state without finan
ces to carry on tho government.
