A MOST ATROCIOUS CRIME IN MINNESOTA. ]'"red Paul Shoots a Woman and Tlion Cuts Off His Victim's Kiirs—After Killing tbe Woman lie Puts a Bullet Through Bis Own Carcass—Th« News in General. LONG PKAIHIE, Sept. -'0.—Last night, Fred Vuul shot Mrs. Louis Buelow. a neighbor Woman, who lives at Hoarhead, eight miles from hero, while she was at. work in a potato patch.

After killing the woman Paul went home and shot himself, and was found by his brother some hours later, Coronor Hates went out to the scene a few hours after the sad tragedy, and found that the hogs had eaten the face off the dead woman. No cause Is assigned for the tragedy. It is thought hero that the man was insane, as ihe gave his team away in the morning. CAUSED A SENSATION. SyblUolinstone's Realistic Mlsi'i^ire sen ta li oil of ail Artist's Model. NEW YORK, Sept. 20.—The transformation in the "Clamenceau case" which 'Occurred last, night at the Standard theatre was cer tainly a startling one. When Miss Pearl Eytinge attempted on Monday last to im personate Iza, the audience quickly recog nized that she did not fill the bill, or rather, tilled it too much. The was not an artist's model, by a good deal, with her 190 pound- •of flesh, and when she appeared in the third act as an artist's model with only enough drapery on to conceal a very limited portion of her ample form, she became the lull •of the gallery. Last niglit Sybil .lolinstone. formerly of Minneapolis, assumed the role. Despite the inclemency of the weather, the house was •crowded Miss Eytlnge occupied a box. Miss Johnstone appeared as the-model in a •costume consisting of pink tights and pink jersey. Of course the.v were of sillc. She wore no stays or corsets and her form was •displayed in a strikingly realistic manner. The spectators were astonished, but the lady did not seein to be at all bashful and her tights were without trunks and alto gether it was one of the scantiest- and most suggestive attire ever seen in a New York theater. When Miss Eytiuge appeared in this scene she at least offered an apology for drapery in the shape of a bit of tulle, but an appre hensive chill attacked every person ill the auditorium when she •volunteered to remove her drapery. She did not do it. however. When the part wasoll'ered to Jliss Johnstone she declined to play it unless that offensive and suggestive bit of tulle drapery could be dispensed with. She was determined in this, and from the fact that it was entirely dis carded last night, she must, have been given her way. Miss Johnstone is not one of your sort that allows trifles to upset, them she stood the ordeal bravely so did the regu lar occupants of the front row chairs. They may have winced under that patent, influence of the sight that met their gaze but they never turned a hair. Miss John a a I 1 lier form is the embodiment of sym metrical womanhood, with grace and beauty combined she would be a huge success as the heroine in a tank drama. Miss Johnstone is about 24 years of age, has golden hair, dark blue eyes and a figure that shows the use of much exercise. Miss Johnstone is not very well known in theatrical circles here, although she has ap peared in the "Henrietta"'as the wife of the villian, and in one or two other plays. She is quite young and the wife of a Wall street broker, who keeps the place of heir resi dence a dead scoret. Manager J. M. Hill, of the Standard theater, said to-day: I cannot imagine how anybody could ob ject to Miss Johnstone's interpretation of •the part of Iza in the "Clemenceau Case." Her form is simply perfect in the model scene she took her dress, after the artist had finished with her. and wrapped it about her then shelled it around her waist and this gave her bust and neck, indeed, from the waist, up. the appearance of being naked. Of course, that was not intentional and it is only a case of "evil to him who evil thinks." She has the most beautiful figure of any woman I ever saw, although she is •of slim build. PISTOLS IN CHURCH. .A Jersey City Father Attempts to Slioot His Son While tlio Latter Is Being -United In Marriaue. NEW YORK, Sept. 30.—Henry Cassel, of 17!) Glendening avenue, Jersey City, at tempted to kill liis son while the latter was :about to be married to Miss Mary Deely. .aged 19, in St. Patrick's Roman Catholic •church in Jersey City. The bridal couple were standing before the altar and l-'ather .Sheehan was in the act of performing the •ceremony when Cassel, who had got into the church without being seen, jumped up in an •excited manner and. pointing a pistol at his :son,.deliberately fired. The ball failed to hit the young man, and lodged in the wall. .As Cassel was about to fire a second shot .Father Sheehan sprang toward him and. •seizing his arm, managed to wrest the pistol from him after a desperate struggle. The bride fainted and was taken in charge by •.-iojne .of her female friends, louring the-ex citement Cassel, the father, escaped. His reason for attempting to assassinate his son was that he did mot want Miss Deely for a daughter-in-law.. The son's name is Alfred Cassel, and he is 21 years of age. He said liis father had warned him not to marry Mies Deely., but -he paid no heed to this, as he loved the girl, and for this reason had made her his wife. O'BRIEN NOT WORRIED. Continuation -of the Investigation at Mon treal Into tlie Prince George Mattel'. MK.VTHF.AI,, Sept. 20,—Investigation in the case of N. N. O'iirien, the newspaper man, who is charged with sending tile alleged libelous story about Prince Goorgc to the American newspapers, is being continued. The dispatch, which it is asserted was sent by O'iirien. and which is the basis of the -charge, lias not been produced. O'Brien tdseats the whole affair as a joke, and threatens to lake action .against those en guffeii in the prosecution. While there is not, tho slightest, sympathy among news paper men for O'Brien there is a good deal of fevljng in his favor on account of the junune? in which the praseerilion is being conducted. There is a verj widespread feeling that had Prince George not been pp iu the matter no action would lia\T been taken, o.ml b:it Prince Ccorgv. simply brins used to further the interests of certain private inuiYnhtais. A largo fund has been subscribe:] for the prosecu tion, so that the eminent r.v v.-,3 who are. conducting the case against. O'iirien are not working for nothing. There is a good deal of doubt as to whether a conviction can bo obtained, many holding that a charge of libel does not hold against-a member of the royal family and that the only charge that can be proferred is one of reason. TORN BY WILD BEASTS. Men, Women and Children Mangled by tlie Animals of a Traveling Slenagrerie. LONDON, .Sept. 20.—News comes from Ivlmbcrly, South Africa, that over a dozen people were torn to pieces there by the wild animals of Flllis' menagerie, which were released from their cages by some ono boaring HI feeling towards the proprietor. Four attendants sleeping on the premises were mangled beyond recognition, being actually torn limb from limb, bitten and gashed in tlie most sickening manner, whilo the entire population within the radius of a mile was aroused by the roaringof the lions, tho trumpeting of the elephants, the growls and shrieks of the leopards, cheetahs, jackals and 1 he screams of the frightened horses. Four enormous male lions—Pasha. Abdul. Caliph and Mustapha—sprang from their cages and made for the stables, where Pasha leaped upon the back of Murat. the great jumping stallion, and buried his teeth in the animal's neck. Tlie screams of the horse aroused the attendants, a Scotchman named Patterson and three Kafllr boys. who. armed with stable forks, rushed to the relief of Murat. From the dying words of one Klfllr. who was the only one able to speak when aid came, it was learned that they rushed to unspeakable torture and met a fearful death. He and his mates endeavored to beat Pasha buck, when they wore attacked in (he rear by the three other lions and one cheetah. They were thrown to the ground, their arms and legs bitten and dragged off, their bodies mangled and torn, heir bones smashed into bits, and, with the exception of the single Kafllr. their heads crunched into a pulp. An enormous elephant.known as Wood burst through the heavy iron gate in his fright and rushed into Curry street, followed li nearly every animal that was in the men agerie. A little child of James Grindlcy. happening to be in a rear room opening on a garden, was pounced uppn by a cheetah and dragged into the open iir. where its agonized mother saw it torn to pieces and devoured, and she powerless to prevent it. Other, and equally harrowing Incidents, are reported, among which are the killing of five women, who were fearfully mangled. FATE WORSE THAN DEATH.

HURLED INTO ETERNITY THIRTY-FIVE LIVES LG3T IN A WRECK. An Express Train Thrown Over &n Kni baiikment Whilo Running at Full Speed -An I'ul scenes of'Horror as the Debris Is Cleared Away. Reading (Pa.) dispatch A fatal and disastrous wreck occurred on the Read ing railroad, seventeen miles above this place. The train which met with dis aster left this city ten minutes late. It was running at the rate of thirty eight or forty miles an hour, It had on board I2.r to 150 ^passengers, and it consisted of engine* mail and express cars and three passenger cars. Above Shoeinakersville, about fifteen miles above this city, there is a curve where the the railroad is from eighteen to twenty feet higher than the Schuyl kill river. Here, shortly after 6 o'clock a freight train ran into a coal train, throwing several cars of the latter train on tbe opposite track. Before tbe train hands had time to go back to warn any approaching train of the danger tho Pottsville express came around the curve and ran into the wrecked coal cars on Its track. The engine went down the embank ment, followed by the entire train with its human freight Some of the passen gers managed to crawl out of the wreck and arouse the neighborhood. Word was telegraphed to this city and help summoned. Physicians and surgeons and a force of 300 workmen were taken to the spot by the company, and the work of clearing away the wreck was at once commenced. Work was slow and the dead and dy ing were taken out with great difficulty. Up to 2 o'clock a. m. fifteen dead and thirty wounded had been taken out. Of the latter some were brought to this city and others taken to the miners' hospital at Ashland. The dead so far discovered are still on the ground. The dead ta*en out and identified up to this time are as follows: WILLIAM I). SHOME, Reading badly mangled. JOHN WHITE, engineer, Pottsville, Pa.

WILLIAM SIMMERS, Ashland. The wrecked train is still lying at the bottom of the river. The exact number on the passenger list is not known, but conservative people estimate the num ber killedat thirty-five. At 11 o'clock Mail Agent Green awaldsbery was taken out, followed by the horribly mangled bodies of two Mahanoy City fireman. Prof. Mitchell of Lehigh University, Bethlehem, is among the injured at the Reading hospital. Lawronce Barnes of Philadelphia, has his arm dislocated. The body of John L. Miller of Cress onia was taken out at midnight. George B. Kaercher, Esq., the emi nent railroad lawyer of Pottsville. who had also a law office iu Philadelphia, is among the killed. Persons who were well acquainted with him have identi fied the crushed body in the debris of the Pullman car. William IX Shone, one of Reading's wealthiest citizens, was a passenger on tho train and was one of the first persons reported killed. He leaves a widow and two sons. A gentleman who escaped from the wreck said: "The train was going at a lively rate of speed. The passengers appeared a happy crowd, manv of them ladies, chatting and laughing after a day's pleasure at the Berlces county fair. I was viewing the country through which we were passing, when there was a terrible crash. 1 was hurled from my scat, while the cars rolled down the twenty-foot embankment, and I was thrown from one side of the car to the other. One end of the car went into water and was thrown against the side of the car with a force that partial ly stunned me. I quickly recover ed myself and managed to climb upon the seats on that side of the car. which lay against thp embankment. I was a prisoner in the car, unable to get out. Around mo were human beings struggling in the water, screaming in their fright, and some almost dragged me back into the water again. A few saved themselves as I did and the remainder struggled in the water and then quietly sunk out of sight." THE IT three reasons which a good woman presented for objecting to a preacher were striking ones. She said that, in the first place, he read his ser mon in tlie second, he did not read it well and iu the third place it was not worth reading.

DAKOTA INFORMATION. Observation* of Gov. Mellette on His Trip Across tlicl ICeservntion—Survey of tlie Same—News in Iiriel', (iov. Melinite and party have, returned from a week's trip through the reserva tion country west of the river. Regard ing the country the governor said: "I have not time to tell you much about, it, but I will say I saw a splendid country aud think a good deal of it, too. Bar ring going thirty-six hours without food 1 enjoyed the trip immensely. There is no better stock country in the world, judging from what we saw. I visited a number of ranchmen on both the Chey enne rivers and saw their stock, and it is in prime couditiou. I would rather have a thousand good cows out there than have the best office in the country. I have a bunch of cattle on my farm in t'oddington county, and I have made ar rangements to place them with Scotty Phillips. There ie short buffalo grass crowing all over out there which is very nutritious, besides an abundance of bunch grass, alkali grass and other grasses I am not familiar with, but the ranchmen say all these grasses possess fattening proprieties and their stock is a living example of it. We found water in abundance excellent water, too. There may be places where water is scarce, but there was plenty where we went." Referring to the question of or ganizing Nowlin and Stoling counties, tlie governor stated he had the matter under advisement. The governor's face was badly scratched, the wagon having upset and spilled tho whole party out while crossing bad places. Survey of tho Reservation. F. W. Pettigrcw has about completed his contract of surveying seventeen townships of land west of Fort Pierre. Mr. Pettigrew's will be the first contract finished, and even then filings cannot'be placed until a couple of months later, or until the maps and data are returned from Washington to the Pierre land nflicc. Mr. Pettigrcw states that he finds the land first class agricultural, and in his report to. the general land office is rating it as such. Whilo there arc a good many "squattors" on these, townships, not so much of the land lias been taken as would have been the case, had settlers been able to make filings but there is increased inquiry from dif ferent parts of the country regarding homesteads west of the river, time of filing, etc., and it is more than likely that these comparatively free homes will lie taken as soon as filings can be made on the land. Prominent Scandinavians here have been corresponding with their friends in the east and the prospect is now good for a large colony of Swedes to locate somewhere out, on Bad river. There is a small settlement of these peo ple in Hughes county, and they have raised pretty good crops every year, and seem t,o be prospering, never complain ing about the country. If a colony of several thousand of these frugal people can be induced to settle on the lands west of the river, it will mean much to wards tho speedy development of that, part of the state. Crop Keportg From Wolsey ami Vicinity. The cold wave of Friday night, put, a stop to growing vegetation, ice formed almost one-fourth of an inch thick, the thermometer registering UG degrees. Tlie damage, however, is very light, as almost everything had dried up before. The prairie grass is almost as dry as in spring and fires are almost a daily oc currence. Thrashing is about half fin ished, so that something like a safe esti mate can be made of the yield. Wheat about 7 bushels oats 20 barley 14, and flax almost a total failure. Corn only about 8 to 10 bushels, although a few fields will yield 25 bushels. Potatoes a very light crop, many farmers being compelled to buy potatoes for their own use. Prospects are now that they will be legal tender by planting time. liav is abundant, which, with the great amount of corn fodder, will be amide to carry the stock through until spring. Taking all in all farmers are in much better circumstances than at this time last year, because of better prices of all farm products. Pensions Gruntel Original—John McMurty. Washington.

The ore )ed3 are. staked out for a distance of eigh een miles along the course of the rivei. THE city council of Aberdeen has con tracted with Lawrence Wheeler to sink a sb-inch artesian well at the price of $2.38 per foot, with the understanding that for each 100 feet below 1,000 feet the Irice increase 50 cents per foot, and further that the outside casing to the depth of about 450 feet remain in the grouirl, the additional cost of this last pipe to be at tho wholesale price and freight. This is a great reduction in tho prices that have been paid heretofore. Tin shipping pens of the Fremont & Elkiorn railroad, three miles north of Mimusela, are the largest in the north west and arranged with chutes and cut offs in such a manner that seventy-two head of cattle, or three car loads, can be loaded every twenty minutes. About sixty irain loads of cattle have been shipped so far this season. Tub ild Missouri at Pierre is down at its low water mark, but it is still several feet higher than at this time last year. This is used as the basis for the predic tion tint the years of dry seasons are at an end, and for the next ten years there will be i- cycle of rainy seasons. FROM THE CAl'ITAL. REVIEW OF THE WEEK'S WORK AND WORRY. An Extra Session Now S"eiiis Very Prob able—The Matter 1.1 es With tlie Presi dent-IJnles* an Unexpected Amount ol Work Is Done It Is Inevitable. WASHINGTON, Sept. 17.—Special Corre spondence: A few weeks ago your corre spondent mentioned the fact that among tho things likely, an extra session of cougrfcss for November would be called by the presi dent, and it is said that he is just, now seriously considering tho advisability of such a step. The proposition does not meet with much favor among the rank and file of members of congress, weary with a. ten month's session. It is a matter, how ever, in which the president and the party leaders arc chiefly [concerned, and tbe rest will have to take things as they And them in November. It will be Impossi ble to hold a qurotn after the tariff hill is Anally disposed of. and a quorum being absent nothing can be done which the demo crats seriously object to. To pass the several measures it is the desire of the majority to act upon before adjournment, therefore, will bo practically an impossibility. ith these crowding into the short session there will be little chance for action on the elec tion bill. Seems tlie Only Way. At the conference hold at Senator Teller's house, when the laying aside of the election bill was decided on, it was determined, as stated by your correspondent, that the president should bo asked to call congress together after the November elections. Since then the matter lia» been talked about quietly. A recess might be regarded as better than an adjournment, but it would be difficult, in their present temper, to get the house to agree to a recess. If they are called back In November they have no objection. Mot Yet Talked of in the Houxe. Representative McKlnley said to-day. in regard to an extra session, that he had not heard any talk on the subject in the house As to tho probability of a call, however, he said it would depend upon how far congress at this session went toward disposing of pending questions, lie added that, he thought it likely that not much would be done this session after the tariff bill was disposed of. Luilee Thinks It Prohable. Congressman Lodge, author of the elec tion bill, said to-day that he thought it likely tho president would call an extra session, not only to consider the election bill, but other important matters that could not, bo disposed of at his session. Clarkson Has no Title. Col. Clarlcson has been at the republican national headquarters for si week or so. and tho "office" boys have got a move on them The clerks have been busily engaged send ing out speeches and other campaign docu ments. When asked as to the report iha*. Senator Quay had been requested by tin president to resign the chairmanship of the national committee, Mr. Clark son said: "I know that. Removal of Grant's Remains. The resolution providing for the removal of the remains of Gen. Grant from River side, N. Y., to Arlington, has not, yet had a chance in the house. Mr. O'Neill is prayer fully waiting an opportunity tocall the res olution. On account of the Impossibility of securing unanimous consent for the consid eration of the resolution, a suspension da is a necessity for its adoption. Friends of tlie resolution. however, are not. worrying about the suspension days running out, as the last few days of a session are invariably given up to suspen sion days, and Mr. O'Neill will undoubt edly have all opportunity for the resolution before the close of the session. The chief and main opponent of the resolution is Mr. Quinn, of New York. Mr. Quinu is an ex cellent friend of Washington and it is not because he loves Washington less, but that he loves New York more, that lie has been straining every nerve for the defeat of the proposed removal. He. said to-day he was almost sleeping in the house, to prevent the calling np of the resolution. "The remov.-.l of the renin ins." said Mr. Quinn, "wold be an outrage] on New York and a desecration of the grave of a irreat man. I have been lighting the thing from the first, and 1 shall light, it to the last. I have been making a personal canvass of the house and am satislled that even If this res olution is called up it will be defeated." Mr. Quinn is an energetic member and cer tainly has been working hard among the members, but friends of the resolution think he has greaily overestimated the strength of the opposition. About thirty six i» thought to be the number of voles which can be /lied against the proposal. Provisions oi'the Lottery Law. The anti-lottery bill having now passed both houses of congress, it only awaits the signature of the president to become a law. The bill forbids the carrying in the mail or delivery at or through any postofHee or by any mail carrier of any letter, postal card ar circular concerning any lottery or any list of drawings of the same, or any lottery ticket or part thereof, or any check, draft bill, money, postal note or money order foi l-he purchase of any ticket. It forbids the carrying of any newspaper, circular, pam phlot or publication of any kind containing any advertisement of any lottery, or containing any list of prizes of any such lottery. It forbids any person from depositing, or causing to be de posited, or knowingly send or causing to be sent any such matter by mail. It provides that proceedings for violation of this law may be instituted either In the district at which the mailing was done or at the place to which it Is carried by mail or delivery, or at any place where it is delivered to the person addressed. It provides for prevent ing the delivery of mail matter containing registered funds or money orders addressed lottery companies or their agents. Personal Notes.

In the very morning of her existen whilo the bloom of yfuth is yet brow, the busy hands of tho miner reached for her hoarded treasures beln until we now have in active operation Wf"' than 450 coal mines that employed last I 12,500 men, to whom was paid in wa-os'p"'" fi43,067, and they produced an output t,( 702,770 tons of coal to the aggregate v,i,„ of $5,091,628. Time alone IS needed to extend this dustrya hundred fold—to multiply t0 vast extent tho number of men and amount I of capital employed and to add tothowcaiu, of our state beyond our power to comm,,. liend. Well may we be grateful to those wlm vest their capital and to those who devote their labor to the development and prose cution of this great work. It seems strange that forces so mutually dependent can be arryed against t' ,,!, other as enemies, Instead of standinj to gether as friends, and yet it is true that in many of the great fields of industry upon which the whole world depends for its ad- I vancement, such is the spectacle to-day! In a thousand ways capital is linked n gether in a cruel attempt to rob labor oi its just reward. Pools and trusts, combi nations and conspiracies are constant prod nets of ingenious brains, all formed t., gather to the coffers of the rich immeasur ably more than their share of the propoitv of tlie world. Into the very face of thev magnates of wealth, poverty Haunts its tat tered rags and shouts its cry of need. To,, often the one is unseen, the other nnlieim]. The result is reached. Upon cnc side j« arrayed a few of tho human family, around whom tower more than princely fortunes while luxury surfeits all tlielr wants. On tho other plodding thousands slum! gazing out upon a world fair as it cam,, from tho creator's hand, but cold and heartless in the extreme, for in it there i nothing but toil for them, and this supple with stinted measure the naked needs be queathed by nature to man. If it ever happens that tho extreme men in these conflicting elements are able t,, sway the popular will and array upon the one side or the other all our people, tbe struggle that will follow will end in tlit downfall of a nation and collapso of tbe grandest system of government ever con ceived by man. But of this there is little danger. In botb of these factions of society are thousand* of conservative men as true and loyal to every principle of right as any that evci existed and behind them is the great mid dle class of our people that cannot be prop erly assigned to either. To these men in every hour of danger tbe country can safely turd for succor. The palace is an imposing structure feet in length by 130 in width, the main tower being 200 feet high. It has an archi tectural character of its own, with Its bat lements and turrets of jet reminding one of a frowning castle of feudalism. It is two stories in height, the first being about twenty feet., and the other reaching to tbe top and varying from [forty to sixty feet. The building has an auditorium with a seat ing capacity of 5,000 to 0,000. On cithc: side of this room are the spaces above ami below for the exhibits of the nine surround ing counties and from abroad. One of the most unique features of the palace is the "coal mine." Tho sunken park twelve feet below the surround ing level, is admirably adapted for th:^ purpose. Into the mine a shaft leads from the mine tower 150 feet above, from which point the sight-seer gets into a car. just as in a regular mine, and is lowered through a dark and foreboding shaft into tho sunken park, where the mules and miners, with their lumps and picks, and the coal in lai'ite veins, can be seen with realistic vividness. A waterfall, thirty feet high and falling in a regular sheet twelve feet wide, is another feature. It is located at the rear of the auditorium stage, and at tho bottom dis solves into spray over electric lights so ar ranged as to cause rainbows to chase each other with exquisite effect. It takes 1.500. 000 gallons of water daily for this waterfall. tlie waste water going into a miniature lake peopled with representatives of the finny tribes and bordered with flowers. Specicl days have been arranged and President Harrison 'has signified his inten tion of visiting the palace. The exhibit will close Oct. 11.
