MARK TWAIN's LATEST JOkE,
now He Originated a Wcdding In the
H. house and Persuaded the Young
S[Boston Herald. J
HARTFORD, July 21.-A good story
'bolt Mark Twain is just beginning to
leak out here. Some time ago he went
on a visit to Elmira, N. Y., leaving
his =quaint house among the trees on
Farmington avenue in charge of his
servants. Nearly two weeks ago an
item was published in Hartford daily
*'"papers chronicling an ineffectual at-
tempt to rob the humorist's residence.
The story was that a man presented
himself at the door one day, saying that
he had been sent by the gas company
to inspect the meter and pipes. The
servant, who had not the slightest sus-
picion, allowed the stranger to enter
and do as he pleased. When he sup-
posed no one was watching his move-
ments he hid himself away in a dark
corner, of which there are many in the
'-.odd chalet, and waited for darkness.
tt. the girl, who had watched his
moveie~its, went and procured assis-
tance, anil-had the intruder "bounced"
without c&-emony. When Mr.
Clemens heard the story in Elmira, he
thought he smeld a very large rat,
and hastened to H ford for the pur-
posid of [ferreting it' ut. His theory
was that one of the servant girls must
have had a beau, who was admitted to
the house at unusual hours, and that,
being caught in the act, this means of
concealing the real truth of the case
was adopted. With all the sagacity of
an ex-journalist he followed his cue, but
could not establish the theory he had
--formed.
But while pursuing his investigation
he learned that one of the girls, who
had been a member of his family a long
time, was really guilty of having a
niale admirer, who occasionally shared
the hospitality of the house, unknown
to the prop rir. She was a buxom
English girl with a handsome form and
a bright, cheerful face. Faithful in the
performance of her duties, and always
solicitous for the best interests of the
family, she had made herself almost
invaluable to the household. The
high esteem in which Mr. Clemens had .
alwaysheld her, no doubt influenced his
course. He was sorry to part with the
girl, who had served him well, but see-
ing no other alternative, quickly
matured a plan that "should let her
down easy." After a long hunt he suc-
ceeded in finding young fellow's
name. When that /as gained, Mr.
Oleiens went dowe town and pro-
curred a marriage certificate. Return-
ing he stopped at the residence of the
Rev. Mr. Twitchell, pastor of the J
Asylum street Church. and took him
into his carriage. Arrived home, the
first thing, done was to send for the
young man, who soon appeared, some-
what frightened at the summons. i
From his dress and general appearance
of decay, it was evident that his circum-
stances were not those of violent pros-
perity. When he was brought in
Mark braced up and tried to look digni-
fied. This was about the dialogue that
e n s u e d :: a o P
Mark-So, young man, you have
been inm the habit of making a hotel of
my house-with all the modern im-
provements. [Silence unbroken by
the young man]. Well, as you don t
offer any objections we'll take that part
of the matter for granted. If you had
stopped at that point it would have
been all right. I am always glad to en-
terain company-yes, if you hadt men-
tioned it, I would have had the house
refurnished for you. All that, and
more I would have done for a guest.
But when you [dignity and pathos]-
when you alienate the affections of
Maria Jane, when you descend upon
/ this peaceful fold with base designs-
like a wolf in sheep's clothing, as it
-were-that I cannot forgive. "
S Y. M. (with humility)-If you please,
sir, I ain't got no sheep's clothing.
Mark examiningg the fabric of the
young man's co t)-Ah, I perceive my
error; it i. cotton not wooL However
I was spelling metaphorically. As I
intimated before, I connot endure the
thought of having my home, which
until your fell presence, had been the
abode of innocence, turned into a ken-
nel of wrong doing. When you sought
lnad, yb noaenly wounded me
- mortally,'fbat you aroused my wrath;
Sand, young man, when I'm mad I'm a
bad crowd.- In the first throes of my
passion, I was doubtful whether to
have you arrested for murder in the
first degree, or-"
At tis point the young man showed
symptoms of terror. "But," continued
.Mark, "it suddenly occurred to me that
a certain Pennsylvania Judge-Joe
Bradly, I believe-once ruled that in
cases of arson, the fellow must marry
the girl; and so I conclude that you
must answer to the crime of arson; in
other words you must get hitched to
Maria Jane."
Apparently, Mark's victim was re-
lieved but he was still doubtful. He
said: "If you please, sir, I'd be glad to
marry Maria, but I couldn't support
her.. I ain't got no money and I can't
got no work. I mean to marry her
some time, sir; honest and true I do."
Mark-That's altogether too thin,
young man. You marry Maria right
ere and now, or up you go .for arson.
Y. M. .Well, sir, if it comes to that,


of coursee'll marry her.
Marl' -That's the kind of talk I like.
Here '.'itchell Maria Jane Come

And the two people named, followed
Y- by the other servant, entered the room;
the marriage ceremony was performed,
and Mark and the second girl signed the
cerificate as witnesses. After that
Mark paid the minister, gave the couple
$20W i eash, and sent them adrift with
an injuno -in-which, by the way, he
ascribed to Aoyle--to "go and sin no
more."

AAIEXICAN WAR EXPPLOT.
STwo dies Were Rescned froi
thei Beleaguered City of Mexico- '
Daredevil Feat by Gen. Shields.
[New York Timeas.]
One of the thrilling episodes of the
Mexican war, which is not found in any
of its histories, is that of the rescue
of an English family from the
City of Mexico before the capitula-
tion by a detachment of American sol-
diers. The city had been invested for
some time, when a refugee one night
entered that part of our lines which
General Shields commanded. He wa.
an ]English boy, and, with his mother
and a sister just arrived at womanhood,
occupied a home in the capital at the
time of the investment. One of the
lawless guerrilla chiefs who held the
people in terror had conceived a violent
passion for the sister, who repulsed his
advances, and he had declared in his
rage that unless she consented to his
proposals on the following morning he
would carry her off by force, and cause
her mother and brother to be executed.
The l'ad, in the extremity of his terror,
had made his way out of the' city, past
the sentinels and the lines, gained the
American camp, and now besought the
General to save his sister and mother.
The ardent soul of Shields (who was
then but 37) was fired at the thought
of the miserable fate awaiting these
hapless ladies, and, without communi-
cating at all with headquarters (where
flat refusal would have been certain), he
formed a plan for their rescue. To call
it rash, quixotic or daredevil, would be
but the truth ; the best defense of his
proceeding of that night is that it was
a brave act, prompted by a generous
heart, and that he succeeded perfectly,
where disaster would have insured his
dismissal from the army.
He had about 400 picked men of his
command detailed, and, after quickly
informing them what he proposed to
do, he found every man eager for the
venture. Putting himself at the head
of the little column, he silently left the
American lines, and, favored by the
darkness of the night, approached close
to the walls of the iity -without dis-
covery. The sentin .could be plainly
seen on the walls, :" the cry,- "Sen-
tinela alerte!" was neard as it passed
from mouth to mouth. Guided by the
lad, the party scaled the wall at a
favorable place, and, seizing two or
three of the astonished sentinels, de-
scended into the city and quickly made
their way unopposed through the
streets to the house to which the lad
guided them. The boy ran in and in-
formed the ladies that deliverance had
come; they hastily collected a few
valuables and articles of wearing ap-
parel in a bundle, and, placing the
rescued party in the center of the
column, Shields started to return. But
meanwhile the alarm had been given,
and drums were beating and lanterns
flashing all around the walls. Arrived
near the point of entrance, it was
found that the whole open place be-
tween the houses and wall was filled
with Mexican infantry and artillery.
Shields instantly deployed, and gave
the command to fire. A rattling volley,
followed by a bayonet charge, threw
the Mexicans into disorder, and the
Americans rushed through and over
them with their little party, made their
way out, and returned to their own
camp with but a few casualties,
although they drew the fire of both
sides on their return, for the American
camp was now aroused and the pickets
were firing rapidly. But the tumult
soon ceased on both sides, and the
adventurous soldiers returned to their
quarters as though nothing had hap-
pened out of the usual course, and the
ladies were safely bestowed for the
night in a hut made as comfortable as
possible.
How he was called upon to account
for this night's work will be best told
in General Shields' own language:
"The next morning an officer of Gene-
ral Scott's staff came to my quarters
with a message from the General that
he would like to know the cause of the
previous night's alarm, as it originated
in that part of the line which was under
my command. I answered that I
would report in person, which I at once
did. On the way I thought the matter
over, and concluded that it would be
best to make a clean breast of it, and I
did so. The story threw General Scott
into a tremendous rage. Ever since
Cerro Gordo was fought he had ad-
dressed me as My Cerro Gordo friend,'
but now he dropped that familiar name.
' General Shields,' he thundered, you
are insubordinate and reckless in the
highest degree. You have put in peril
the fruits of the whole campaign; you
have, perhaps, frustrated all my plans
for the capture of the City of Mexico.
Sir, I'll disgrace you ; I'll court-martial
you and have you dismissedthe service!'
My temper rose and I answered him
plainly that he might court-martial me,
and perhaps get me dismissed, but, af-
ter all that had occurred in this cam-
paign, neither he nor any other man
could disgrace me; and, being by this
time pretty well stirred up, I said that
under the circumstances I would do
precisely the same thing over again.
Instead of being more angry, the Gen-
eral was rather softened by this speech.
'I was wrong, General Shields,' he
said, in saying that I would disgrace
you; I ask your pardon for that. You
are a brave man, and disgrace is not
the word to use towards you. But you
are greatly to blame in this matter, sir.
You have acted without orders, and
have imperiled the whole campaign.'
'General Scott,' I said, 'before you
say anything more about it, suppose
you come over to my quarters and
see these ladies.' After some fur-
ther talk he promised to do so, and
I rode back to my tent pretty well
satisfied that I should have no further
trouble with the affair. In an hour
over came General Scott, and I at once
introduced him to the ladies. The
daughter was a picture of beauty, with
her golden curls and her blue eyes;
and after the mother had thanked the
general for their preservation with
tearful eyes and trembling voice, the
girl seized his hands, wept over them,
called him her preserver, and invoked
the blessings of Heaven on his head.
Scott looked from her to mewith a very
benevolent face and said, 'Well, my
Cerroj Gordo friend, if I get you court-
martialed for this, I shall have you pro-
moted, too.' I have only to add that


long afterward, when the war was over
and we had returned to the United
States, I received from England, the
gift of these ladies, a costly diamond
pin as a token of their gratitude."

WEDDED MISERY.
Philarider Altrop's Troubles with Two
.%,sWomen Who Claim Him as Their
tnusband.
Fourteen years ago, it is claimed by
Kate Altrop, she was married in the
city of Boston, Massachusetts,, to Phi-
lander D. Altrop. Latterly and until
about a year since, according to her
story, they made a living by making
rounds with a hand-organ. Philander
turned upon the organ, while she sold
a ditty consisting of seven verses, eight
ImCn to a verse, rehearsing the fight be-
tween the Cumberland and Merrimac.
The verses were "written and sold by
Philander D. Ai oP, a survivor of the
Cumberland's crew," and at the end of
the composition was a Certificate bear.
ing the name of Lieut. 1,ryrison, com-
manding officer, saying tha+ Altrop
"lost his left arm andhas little use of
his right arm, on board the Cumberind
at Newport News, March 8th, 1862.
About a year ago the Altrops arrived
at Cleveland with their organ and then
Mrs. Altrop's troubles began. She
says that Philander made the acquaint-
ance of Mary Ann Ogilvie-a fair
maiden of fifty summers-that he de-
serted his lawful wife, then sixty-four
years of age, and marrying Mary Ann,
left the city.
Yesterday morning Mrs. Altrop No.
1 arrived in this city, and while walk-
ing from the boat up to Jefferson
avenue heard the musical notes of Phil-
ander's organ, and upon going around
the corner of Front street saw her tru-
ant husband grinding away, while his
second wife was trying to sell the "song
about the Cumberland."
Mrs. A. No 1 seized a base ball bat
from the hands of a small boy and
pounced down upon the crowd. She
struck No. 2 across the neck, dealt a
crushing blow upon the organ and
nearly knocked Philander senseless by
hitting him upon the head. Of course
all Front street turned out, and it a
very short time it looked as though
mob law was asserting itself. Just then
Officers Dacey and Murnane arrived,
and they arrested the trio, not, how-
ever, until Kate had struck Mr. Dacey
severely.
At last they were lodged at the Cen-
tral Police Station, where the other
stories were heard. Philander says he
was never married but once, and then
to Mary Ann Ogilvie. Mary Ann says
she is innocent, and if she has been
imposed upon desires that the law shall
inflict full punishment upon the im-
postor. She says : "I told him I didn't
want to marry I told him we were too
old-he sixty five and I fifty. I told
him I wouldn't marry the best man that
walked. But he was my shadder and
begged like a child, and being a helpless
cripple I pitied him and.we were mar-
ried. Now, if I've been swindled,
there's going' to be music, that's all, and '
it won't come out of the orgin, either I"
An Awkward Predicament.
We have heard the history of a man
who was for many hours watched by a
bear without his being able to remove
from the spot where he was sitting; here is
a more terrible one of a man and a lion.
A man returning from a visit to his friends
at Bethadi South Africa, took a cir-
cuitous ci" rse in hopes to kill an an-
tilope to c..-ry home to his family. Seeing
no game when he reached the spot, he
laid his gun down on a low, shelving rock,'
and went down to a pool to drink, after
which he returned to the rock, smoked
hie pipe, and fell asleep. In a short time
the heat reflected from the rock awoke
him, and he saw a lion crouching before
him, with his eyes glaring in his face, and
within a little more than a yard from his
feet. He sat motionless for some time,
till he had recovered his presence of mind;
then, eyeing his gun, he moved his hand
slowly towards it. The lion, seeing this,
raised his head and gave a tremendous
roar. He made another, and another,
and another attempt, but the gun being
far beyond his reach, he gave it up, as
the lion seemed well aware of his object,
and was enraged whenever he attempted
to move his hand. The rock on which he
sat became so hot that he could hardly
bear his naked feet to touch it, and he
kept moving them alternately placing one
above the other. The day passed, and
the night also, but the lion never moved
from the spot. The sun again rose, and
soon rendered his feet beyond feeling. At
noon the lion rose and walked to the
water, only a few yards distant, but look-
ng behind as he walked, lest the man
should move ; and seeing him stretch out
his hand to take his gun, turned in a
rage and seemed about to spring upon
him. The animal went to the water,
drank, and returned, lay down again at
the edge of the rock. Another night
passed ; the man in describing it said that
he knew not whether he slept, but, if he
did, it must have been with his eyes open,
as he always saw the lion before him.
Next day the animal went again to the
water, and while there he listened to some
noise apparently from an opposite quarter
and disappeared in the bushes. The man
made another effort and seized his gun,
but his ankles were without power and he
could not walk. He crept down to the
water, gun in hand, expecting the return
of the lion, which, however, never came
back. The unfortunate man remained a
cripple ever after.

The Growth of the Nation.
The returns from all the custom
districts during the fiscal year endin,
June 30, 1877, show that the total ex
ports, in specie value, amounted t
$602,474,581, while the imports for th
same period were $451,307,549, an ex
cess of exports over imports of $151,
167,032. The surplus of exports ove
imports is gratifying, in view of th
fact that for so many years the latte
exceeded the former. It is evident tha
the products of American industry ar
gaining favor rapidly with foreign
countries, and this has been accom
polished in spite of the repeal of the pro
hibitory duties which a few years ag
were acting as hot-house nurseries fo
all Eastern manufactories. It al
so shows that a wise revenue
tariff is the best, and that enterprise
nurtured as were ours at the tim.
spoken of acquire an unhealthy growth
and are apt to wilt at the first breath
of competition. Many fabrics now
manufactured in this country are fairly
on their legs and need no prohibitory
props to bolster them up. Further
they have in many instances driven for
eign fabrics from the market, their su
period quality and cheapness rendering
competition unprofitable. Another fact
is shown by this summing up of the
year's work. Americans are learning
S---to be economical. There is not thai
rush for Europe which filled all outgo.
ing steamers which sailed from New
York during the Summer months a few
years ago.
It has been discovered that there are
places just as attractive for Summer
rambling in our own country. Many
who used to imagine the year badly
spent without a jaunt to Europe, now
turn their steps to the Pacific to exam-
ine the myriad natural wonders open
for their inspection, and which exceed
those offered them on the other side of
the Atlantic. Moreover, hard times
have brought about economy in dress
and in the superfluous luxuries of life.
Rich people are finding out that life is
worth living without smothering it in
'tseel and finery-a lesson hard to ac-
-ry valuable when learned.
x a ped that the change will
)e permanent and Americans in future
will so comport themselves in dress and
habits as not to become the laughing
stock of other nations.

A Book for the Times.
A canvasser is now in the city solic-
iting subscriptions for a book called
The Cross and the Crescent," to be
issued in September. It will be a hand-
some volume of about 500 octavo
pages, with over fifty illustrations and
a splendid map of the seat of war in
Europe. It-will give a resume of the
events that have led up to the present
contest, the character of the 'people en-
gaged in it, their habits, customs and
peculiarities, together with sketches of
their great statesmen and military com-
manders. The Bulgarian massacres will
be graphically described and the "bal-
ance of power" in Europe explained.
This will be a timely volume. Many
persons are interested in the war be-
tween Russia and Turkey, with no clear
knowledge of those countries or the
causes which have brought about such
a bloody and disastrous struggle. They
wade through columns of telegrams
day afgefday with a confused glimmer-
ingthat somebody is whipping and
somebody is getting whipped, but their
terest would be tenfold increased by
a proper knowledge of the subject. To
these "The Cross and Crescent" will
be an invaluable acquisition.

The Freight on Wood.
A car load of ten cords of wood,
bought in Empire at $8 per cord, costs
$51 delivered in Virginia City-$5 10
per cord for an hour's run. This makes
the cost $13 10 per cord by the car
loadfor wood floated down the river to
Empire. A better quality of wood can
be bought along the Truckee for $3 to
$4 per cord. It could be brought here
over a direct narrow-gauge road for
$2 50 to $3 per cord, thus reducing the
i cost of firewood fully one-half.

Killed by a Maid Who had been Slan-
dered.
On Tuesday evening Gale Hollings-
worth, of White Pigeon, Keokuk coun-
ty, Iowa, was shot and killed by Miss
White for alleged slander. She met
Hollingsworth and gave him a written
statement confessing that he had cause-
lessly slandered her, demanding that he
sign it. He denied the charge, and re-
fused to sign the paper, upon which she
drew a revolver and shot him, not fa-
tally. He ran, and she pursued, firing
a second shot, which took effect. He
climbed a fence, but overcome by his
wounds fell to the ground. Miss White
then ran up, placed the muzzle of her
pistol to his head, and fired a third
time, killing him instantly. Hollings-
worth was a middle-aged, well-to-do
farmer, and leaves a wife and family.
Aliss 11'hite is a maiden of good family,
and has always borne a good reputa-
tion. At last accounts she had not

HORRORS OF THE WAR.
Flaying Young Girls and Cutting
Their skins Into Strips
BUCHAREST, July 12.-The retreat
southward of the Turks through Bul-
garia has been accompanied by scenes
exceeding in atrocity all the miseries of
last year, when the Bulgarian massa-
cres shocked the civilized world. This
time, however, it is not only the Turks
who commit the atrocities, but the
Bulgarians themselves are retaliating in
a frightful manner upon those Turkish
residents who cannot follow their army.
While preparations for retreat were go-
ing on, the irregular troops from Asia
committed the most frightful horrors.
Under the pretense of forcing the
Bulgarians to follow the army to help
throw up fortifications, these irregulars
insisted that the women should join
them. Poor souls! in many instances
they submitted to this new kind of
slavery. But not all of them followed
so willingly. A woman with her three
daughters, residing near Mastchin, re-
belled against such commands. With
a hellish howl the armed fiends threw
themselves upon the poor women,
bound them upon the backs of their
horses, and galloped away with them to
a spot sufficiently distant from the
army, so that they could not be inter-
fered with in their hellish designs by
the military authorities. Of course,
when taken from their horses, the
women were more dead than alive.
Nevertheless, the daughters were all
first violated and then murdered. They
then went to work and skinned the
dead bodies of the girls, cut the skin
up in strips, and with these strips tied
the poor mother to a tree, where she
had her head cut off, and the remainder
of the body left to the vultures. Even
for Bulgaria, this horrible atrocity is
considered so important that all foreign
Governments have instructed their
Embassadors to protest to the Sultan,
in the name of humanity, against the
employment of such men in the Turkish
army. Consuls at Galatz, Braila and
other places were instructed to ascer-
tain the correctness of this bloody
episode of the war, and at once proceed
to Matschin to investigate the affair.
With the aid of a chaplain belonging to
one of the Russian regiments, they soon
the discovered the spot where massacre
took place. Decent burial had already
been given them by the Russians, but
upon the demands of the Consuls the
bodies were disinterred, and ample
evidence of the atrocious crime was ob-
tained.


The Bulgarians themselves, acting as
the allies of the Russians, have retali-
ated frightfully upon those Turkish
families who did not leave with their
army. They have plundered several
houses, and in one instance took a
whole family, which had expressed
sympathy for the Turkish cause, out of
their home, set the house on fire, tied
the adults, among whom were four
women, to trees, and flogged them on
their bare backs till the blood streamed
down their bodies. Their shrieks,
however, soon attracted the attention
of a Russian patrol, and quick as light-
ning six of the Bulgarians were
arrested, and two of the leaders have
since been shot by order of a court-
martial.
THE LONDON WHEAT MARKET.
A Review of the Prospects In Euro.
pean Wheat-Growing Countries.
Special Dispatches to the Evening Chronicle.]
LONDON, August 7.-The Mark Lane
Express, in its weekly review of the
British corn trade, says: Wheat may
now be considered to have reached ma-
turity, and in some southern districts
harvesting has commenced. Crops of
wheat, barley and oats are heavy, but
badly laid by the rain, and almost
everywhere the fields have a more or
less dingy appearance ; but the harvest
is so near that nothing short of a disas-
trous change of weather can influence to

A DEADLY WELL,
- Three Men's Lives Destroyed by the
t Fatal Gas.
At Langville, in Ringold township,
8 Jefferson county, Pa., July 25th, three
men lost their lives under most distress.
ing circumstances. A Mr. Hollowel
went down into his well at his res
idence, for the purpose of cleaning it,
but upon reaching the bottom became
sickened with the gas and started t(
climb out, at the same time calling to
his wife for assistance. She ran to the
well, observed him clambering up the
wall, and as he neared the top she
reached down to aid him, but just as
she was about to seize his hand he fel
to the bottom, a distance of 25 feet, and
was killed, his head having beer
I crushed and his brains dashed out as he
descended. The shrieks of the wife
brought the neighbors to the spot, and
they all at once set about to extricate
the body of her husband. A Mr. Moore
volunteered to descend, and when about
midway, as he was being let down by a
rope, he was overcome by the gas, fel]
to the bottom and was suffocated. An.
other neighbor, a Mr. Bartley, was now
induced to go down into the well and
endeavor to secure ropes about the
bodies of Mr. Hollowell and Mr. Moore,
in order that they might be drawn out.
He descended, accomplished his task,
and was being drawn up, when he, too,
was affected by the gas, and was dead
before he reached the top of the well.
This extraordinary occurrence created
the greatest excitement in the neighbor.

THE TRUCKEE RIVER.
A Large Run of Timbers Made This
Year-How the Work is Done.
A correspondent, writing from Reno
to the S. F. Bulletin, says: A new rail-
road is talked of to Virginia and another
to the forests to the northwest, and
ultimately to the Sacramento Valley.
The Truckee river is destined, sooner
or later, to be put in harness and made
to drive machinery. The fall and
volume are sufficient for all purposes.
Efforts have frequently been made to
use it for the transportation of materials
from the mills to this place where it
would be transferred to the cars and
hauled to the mines. Heretofore no
one has been rewarded with success,
but this year, owing to the low stage of
water, a large run of timbers has been
made. The process is to place the
sticks in the river, and then open the
gates in the dam at the outlet of Lake
Tahoe. The flood which pours out
carries everything before it until it is
spent. Men are sent to break jams,
open up channels, etc., and the gates
are again opened, and so on until the
timbers are all lodged safely at the bot-
tom. Unfortunately the river is too
swift and rocky to permit of rowing or
sailing. Otherwise it would add
largely to the pleasure of the citizens.
Rescued from a Watery Grave.
[From the Corinne (Utah) Record.]
Yesterday afternoon the writer wit-
nessed a strange sight in the Record
office. Our attention was attracted by
several lusty squeaks from the inside of
a pail, almost filled with water, into
which a half-grown mouse had fallen.
The alarm had scarcely died away be-
fore four or five mice appeared on the
scene and began clambering to the edge
of the pail. For several moments after
gaining the top of the pail and catching
sight of the mouse in the water, a
squeaking confab was held. First one
mouse and then another would cling to
the rim of the bucket with his hind
legs, and while almost touching the
water with his nose, squeak out either
consolation or advice to the immersed,
but, while all this was going on, the
swimming powers of the unfortunate
mouse in the pail were rapidly giving
out. At last a happy thought seemed
to strike the biggest mouse in the
crowd, and almost without a squeak he
firmly fastened his fore feet to the edge
of the pail and let his body and tail
hang down. The drowning mouse saw
it, and, making a desperate effort for
life, swam to the spot, seized the tail of
his brother mouse, and amid squeaks of
delight from all the mice present was
hauled high and dry out of the water
and over the edge of the bucket.

Strikers Circnumvented.
The Sandusky Rejisfer says : A flour
dealer in this city is playing it rather fine
on the strikers. His stock of flour hav-
ing become nearly exhausted, and he being
unable to replenish it from the mill at
Monroeville, he hit upon a novel plan for
obtaining a supply. A car load of flour be-
longing to him had been lying at Monroe-
ville for a few days, the railroad company
being unable to deliver it in this city.
Yesterday forenoon he procured the key
of the Baltimore and Ohio Company's
switch, and by hitching a team of mules
to a car loaded with flower he pulled it on
the main track and then started the
mules with the car toward this city. He
had provided himself with planks which he
placed on the ties across the cattle guards
and bridges, and the sure-footed mules
were enabled by walking on the planks to
get safely over the bridges and guards.
Thus the car load of flour was pulled as


far as the switch at Perkins, where
the engineer" side tracked his
novel train in order to allow the regular
evening passenger train to pass. The
long-eared" locomotives" were detached
from the car and flour, and were al-
lowed to rest during the night. They will
be hitched to the car again this morning,
and the flour brought here.

e Several Men Killed in a Quarrel
About a Sack of Flour.
e LOUISVILLE, August S.-Two serious
e shooting affairs occurred on Monday in
* Washington county, in one of which
* John Sutterfield shot and killed John
Butler. This affair was the result of a
previous difficulty over a sack of flour.
Gardner's store, near Millersburg, was
where the other fight occurred, in
which several families participated. It
e was a renewal of the .former fracas.
Several of the Gardners, Cases and
, Sheridans were participants. One man
e (Sheridan) was shot through the head
- and killed outright, and Gardner was
I shot in the arm and one of the Case
- brothers in the wrist. Twenty or
, thirty shots were fired, and probably
e others are wounded whose names could

Gathering Evidence Against Kellogg.
NEW YORK, August 8th.-Efforts
have been making for some time in
Louisiana to secure certain accounts
and papers held by the ex-StateAuditor,
Johnson. It is believed by the prose-
cuting authorities of the State that
these papers implicate Kellogg in a
scheme for plundering the State. In
pursuit of similar evidence Governor
Nicholls has sent a detective to San
Francisco to arrest Fulton, Tax Collect-
or in the 1st New Orleans district, who
is currently believed to have acted as
paymaster to the ring. Fulton reaches
New Orleans to-night.
Verdict of the Coroner's Jury at Read-
ing, Pa.
READING, Pa., August 8.-The
Coroner's jury in the case of the recent
riots rendered a verdict yesterday
acquitting the soldiers composing the
Fourth regiment from any blame for
firing on the rioters. Taking into con-
sideration the fearful peril in which
they were placed, if any blame attaches
to the military it must be borne by
General Bolton, who ordered them to
Reading. The responsibility for the
tragedy is directly attributable to those
who composed the lawless body who
were instigating the riotous proceed-
ings, and the mob is primarily respon-
sible for all subsequent trouble and
bloodshed.
A Decision on Mining Claims.
WASHINGTON, August 7.-The In-
terior Department has decided that an
adverse claim, to be considered, must
be sworn to by the party claiming ad-
versely and not by his attorney. Hear.
ings may be had to determine whether
the legal expenditure has been made on
the mine for which a patent is desired.
An expenditure of more than $1,500 by
the owner. of an adjoining mine on a
portion of a tunnel running through the
premises embraced in the application
for patent, in case applicants were to
have an interest in such tunnel, is con-
sidered an expenditure under the min-
ing law upon the claim applied for.
A Physician Assassinated.
TERRE HAUTE, Ind,, August 7.-Dr.

fessional visit to a patient. The cause
of the murder is a mystery.

GRANT'S PETS IN TROUBLE YET

More Rascality on the Part of
Babcock, Whitely and
Nettleship.

Why Special Treasury Agent Moore
was Kicked Out of Office.

Special Dispatch to the Evening Chronicle.]
BosToN, August 8.-The craldu of
this morning contains the following
communication from K. H. V. Boynton:
The declaration of ex-Special Treas-
ury Agent Moore, that I attempted to
blackmail him, does not contain a sin-
gle element of truth. I never sought
at any time to communicate with him,
either directly or indirectly, for any
purpose whatever. The statement that
I published certain papers after a fail-
ure to obtain money from him as the
price of their suppression, is equally
false, since the papers in my possession
in relation to him have never yet been
published any where, No papers af-
fecting him from the official files of the
Treasury were ever put in my hands by
Mr. Sturtevant, or any one else. Moore
was not removed on account of the ex-
hibition of such papers, as he describes
to the President or Secretary. His re-
moval followed from the discovery of a
series of original documents largely in
Moore's handwriting, showing beyond a
possible doubt that at the time Secre-
tary Schurz and Charles Sumner were
attempting to investigate the Santo
Domingo matter through a committee
of the Senate, Moore, then Assessor of
Internal Revenue in Texas, entered into
a conspiracy with General Babcock
and Colonels Whitely and Nettleship
of the secret service force, to shield
Babcock and defeat some of the most
important objects of that investigation.
To accomplish this it was necessary to
get one of the witnesses against
Babcock, living in Rhode Island, out of
the way. Moore manufactured an
affidavit charging this witness, who
had been a Union soldier in Texas, with
murder. On this he prepared a requi-
sition on the Governor of Rhode Island
for this witness. Moore came with
these papers to Washington, and
Babcock, who was then at the
White House, gave him a letter
to Whitely, requesting the assistance
of the latter. Whitely sent Nettleship
to Bristol to try and kidnap the wit-
ness and take him at night by the Falls
river boat to New York and thence to
Washington, where it was thought the
courts could be induced not to grant a
writ of habeas corpus-a plot which
was more infamous if possible than
the safe-burglary in which the same
parties figured. It failed, but all the
papers remain, and mainly on these
Moore was removed. (Signed):
"K. H. V. BOYNTON."

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS.

The Tippling Gold Hill Justice
of the Peace Sharply
Overhauled.

The Orand nury's Attention Called to
iS Bad Practice of the Conslables-
Extensive Stationery Bills for
County Officers-Etc.

The Board ot County Commissioners
held a meeting to-day. A bill for sta-
tionery for one of the county offices
having been presented, a Commis-
sioner remarked upon the frequency
with which similar bills were presented,
whereupon Commissioner Torp said
this whole matter was wrong. Some
months ago the Board had
adopted a resolution requir-
ing county officers to furnish the Com-
missioners with requisitions of what
stationery, blanks, printing, etc., they
should require; but the resolution had
been totally ignored, and as bills came
in all the time it would perhaps be
best to refuse to audit them until the
county officers realized that they were
not running the Commissioners.
Some of the other Commissioners
present also thought it would be a good
idea to refuse to audit unauthorized
bills, but the Board took no action in
the matter.
A DRUNKEN JUSTICE OF THE PEACE.
The case of Justice Cook of Gold Hill
township was again brought to the at-
tention of the Board. The Justice was
a notorious drunkard, who seemed to
have no idea of the dignity of his posi-
tion. As long as he let whisky alone
he was a very good man, but when he
allowed whisky to get the best of him
-and this was nearly all the time-he
became a worthless bum, who should be
the first to be arrested and locked up.
The complaints against him had been
numerous and were still increasing.
Owing to his failing it was almost im.
possible to get papers signed, cases were
continually being deferred, and the
judgments were calculated to bring in
contempt not only the official himself,
but the administration of justice. Even
in cases where defendants pleaded
guilty the fines had been ridiculously
small and only sufficient to pay about
half the costs, and the county had to
pay the balance. The Board were of
opinion that, unless a change for the
better occurred before the next session
of the Grand Jury, it would become
their disagreeable duty to call for the
removal of the delinquent.
A GAME FOR THE GRAND JURY TO
LOOK AFTER.
An abuse which called for immediate
action on the part of the proper officials
seemed to exist in the matter of Con-
stable's fees. It seems that it is the
custom with Justices, when arrests are
made by the policemen, to issue war-
rants to the Constables, who serve the
warrants and return them, charging the
fees usual in such cases to the county.
This, it was contended, was not
right, as thepolicemenwerepaid regular
salaries. When a constablemade an arrest
t might be different, but where he did
not make the arrest he had no right to
charge fees; and his doing so almost
amounted to misdemeanor in. office.
This practice had gone on now at least
four or five years. It was unjustifiable,
and the attention of the Grand Jury
should be called to it at the earliest op-
portunity.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Chairman Randall was directed to
see that a contract between the county
and the lawyers employed to prosecute
the bullion tax suits was, drawn up in
proper shape.
The specifications for the retaining
wall not being quite ready, the Board
adjourned till to-morrow.
The Caledonian Picneic on Saturday
The Caledonians are making great
preparations for their picnic on Satur-
day next. The prizes are all very costly
and the athletic programme is one that
gives fine opportunities for the display
of strength, skill and agility. The
prize in the old woman's race is $50 in
gold, and the vaulting prize is $25 in
gold. A number of the other prizes
are on exhibition, and altogether they
are the costliest and best ever giv en in
this city. A complete list will be found
on the fourth page of the CHRONICLE.
The medal for which the sharpshooters
aire to contend is worth $250. It is to
be hoped that the greensward, just out-
side the picnic grounds proper, will be
chosen for all the athletic sports, instead
of the confined and dusty space next
the pavilion.
A Map of Lake Bigler.
The detachment of the Wheeler Ex-
pedition which has been operating in
the neighborhood of Lake Bigler during
the past two months, under the com-
mand of Major Weyss, has returned to
Carson, having completed its labors.
Major Weyss will this evening leave
for Washington, D. C., where he will
it once enter upon the preparation of a
map of Lake Bigler and the immediate
vicinity-the said map being intended
or exhibition at the Paris Exposition
next year.
New Boelers for the Gould and Curry.
The two new boilers which were or-
dered from San Francisco for the Gould
and Cunry mine, some time ago, arrived
yesterday and will be put in place at
once, and in about a week hence the
smokestacks will be hoisted up to the
roof of the boiler-house, and set in
place. The new boiler will be used to
supply steam for the air-compressor and
pumping engine.
An Active Mail Agent.
L. Cramer, who has been acting as
mail agent on the lightning train for
she last week, is a brilliant success.
He assorts all the letters and papers on
she train, so that on arrival here every-
shing is ready for instant distribution.
By this means people can now get their
letters about an hour earlier than for-
merly. Cramer is evidently the right
man in the right place.
The Bonanza Dividends for July.
The Consolidated Virginia Mining


Company yesterday declared a divi-
dend (No. 36) of $2 per share, aggre-
gating $1,080,000, payable on Tuesday,
the 14th instant. The California
Mining Company, also, yesterday, de-
clared a dividend (No. 16) of $2 per
share, aggregating $1,080,000, payable
in Wednesday, the 15th instant.
The Champion Clog-Dancers of the
West.
To-night the two famous clog-dancers,
Cathcart and Donahue, will dance at
the Orphans' Fair for a purse of $50,
which the winner will donate for the
benefit of the orphans. This afternoon
there was a sort of children' matinee
at the Fair, which was largely at-
tended.
Hoisting Bonanza Ore in the Curry
Shaft.
Thirty-five tons of ore per day are
being hoisted from the 1200 level of the
Con. Virginia through the Gould and
Curry shaft. The amount hoisted in
this manner will be increased as the
stopes are opened up.

Private School.
Peter Leonard has reopened his day
amnd evening school at 132 South U'street. Sr.
Leonard informs the public that, as lie will
give his whole attention to the school and
pupils will receive the Bienefit of his extended
experience, he hopes to receive a liberal patron-

T1'iE BOARD OF ALDERMEN,
Street Work-Reports of City Officers
-lMilscellaneous Business.
The Board of Aldermen met last
evening and transacted what business
came before it,
STrEaT weOK.
The Committee on Streets reported
the obstruction complained of on I
street, near Ridge, had been examined
into. There never had been a street
there, but there was an alley-way
eleven feet three inches wide, which
was hardly sufficient to admit of the
comfortable passage of teams. If at
least five feet were added to the width
of the street, it would be wide enough.
After some discussion the committee
were granted further time.
In the matter of opening D street,
south of Ridge, the land necessary
therefore having been tendered free ot
cost to the city by the proprietors of
the Union Iron Works, the Committee
on Streets recommended that the prop-
osition be accepted, the street surveyed
and the work done by contract at acost
not exceeding $200. This matter was
laid over for one week, in order to give
the Street Inspector an opportunity of
visiting the locality, and making an es-
timate of the cost of grading.
Concerning the petition of the Joe
States Company, asking to be allowed
to fill to the required grade Taylor
street, from K to I, the Committee on
Streets made report that, the old
Board having already granted such a
privilege to the Massey Consolidated
and American Flag Companies, the
present Board had no right to grant it
over again.
The City Attorney said the city could
grant the same right to twenty different
companies.
Mr. Elliott, who appeared ts the rep-
resentative of the Massey and American
Flag Companies, said that it was a
vested right, and that the city had no
longer any right to give the franchise
to other companies.
The City Attorney held that the city
could not grant a franchise. This was
a mere permit to dump dirt in the
street. There was no contract, no fran-
chise about that.
Mr. Eiliott said the grant to a com-
pany of a right to fill in a street was as
exclusive a franchise as a right to make
and operate a toll-road granted by act
of Legislature.
After some further discussion, Alder-
man Rawlings said that if the granting
of the privilege of the petition of the
Joe Scates would not involve the city
in litigation, he was in favor of grant-
ing the right.
The City Clerk then addressed the
Board and said: "In the name of the
Absolute Mining Company, and as a
stockholder in that company, I hereby
warn you, as the city's representatives,
not to give permission to fill up that
ground to anybody, as we, the Absolute
Company, own the title to that groundJ'
and not the city."
The whole matter was then tablet
Mayor Belknap informing the Boar%
that lie, too, was a stockholder in thi
Absolute Company, and therefore
doubted the propriety of his voting at
all, or taking part in the discussion of
the matter.
Alderman Rawlings called the atten-
tion of the Board to Ophir street, from
C to A, oh the Divide, which had re-
cently been fenced in by a Mr. Larue
after having been open for years. Mr.
Larue claimed fourteen feet of the street
as his, but the residents in that locality
wanted the street opened. The City
Attorney was directed to inquire into
Mr. Larue's title to the ground.
Alderman Comstock wanted Summit
street, south of Sutton avenue, exam-
ined by the Street Inspector, because it
was in an impassable condition.
Alderman Kennedy reported favor-
ably on the erection of a street lamp at
the corner of C street and the Ophir
grade. Lamp ordered erected.
THE WATER BOND 'LOAN.
The Mayor reported he had, in com-
pliance with instructions of the Board,
borrowed $4,000 from the Nevada Bank
at one per cent. per month. Of the
amount $3,900 had been used to cancel
coupons of the water bonds and the
$100 deposited to pay interest on the
loan.
Alderman Biter had failed to confer
with Captain Overton, respecting the
alleged lack of water at the beginning
of the fire on South C street, some three
weeks ago, and asked for and was
granted further time.
REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS.
The City Tax Collector reported the
amount collected for city licenses dur-
ing the week ending last evening to be
$900.
The report of the City Jailer for July
was read. During the month 50 arrests
were made-41 of these were by the
regulars and 9 by the specials. The
number of days' confinement in the
City Prison was 78.
The report of the City Clerk, from
June 5th to July 31st, was received.

this amount $3,599 was for licenses, $15
for rent of city lot, $402 24 for account
of tax on net proceeds of mines, and
$2,500 on account of loan negotiated on
July 12th. The disbursements summed
up $5,089 77. Of this amount the city

F. J. M'DONALD'S DEATH.
The Coroner's Iniquest Last Night-
how the Accident Occurred.
Last evening an inquest was held on
the body of F. J. McDonald, who was
killed in the Justice mine on Monday.
The evidence showed that Frank Ray-
mond was unloading timbers from a car
at the head of the incline, when a stick,
12x12, got the best of him and went down
the incline. It is remarkable that the
timber should have held the track for
even twenty or thirty feet, yet this
was so evenly balanced that it shot down


over 200 feet, striking McDonald, who
was sitting on the cable, inflicting injur-
ies resulting in death. His partner was
on the seat of the giraffe, and was unin-
jured. In some of the mines riding on
the cable is forbidden. The jury ren-
dered a verdict of accidental death.
Consolidation of Land Offices in East-
ern Nevadua.
The President directed that the
Elko and Pioche offices for the sale of
public lands be discontinued, and their
archives and business transferred to
the local land office at Eureka, Nevada.
Further notice of the precise time of
closing the offices at Elko and Pioche,
and of the time when their records will
be accessible to the public at Eureka,
will be give by the officers of the dis-
trict by publication.

An Interview with the Wandering
Jew.
An old fellow has been seen walking
up and down therailroad track for some
days past, whose stout figure and long
gray beard give him the appearance of
the Wandering Jew, as pictured by
Gustave Dorc. Indeed, some people
solemnly aver that he is that prince of
pedestrians. A CHRONICLE reporter
met him yesterday and asked him,
point blank, if he was the Wandering
Jew, to which he replied:
Stow that, now, or I'll biff ye one
under the ear !"
Probably he isn't the Wanderi e


A ROPE WANTED IN DAYTON. -
An Atrocious Crime Discovered-The
Perpetrator Escapes from Town.
The Lyon County Times of this morn-
ing says m A few days since it came to
light that a fiend in human form has
been residing in Dayton. John ilaynel;
a man of 21 years of age, was known to
all the citizens of that town as a fast
young man-a sport. It now turns out
that he has been tampering with a num-
ber of little girls of from 5 to 9 years
old. A short time ago he got a posi-
tion on a ranch down the Carson river.
Since he left Dayton his heinous acts
have become known, and parties were
keeping the matter quiet, awaiting his
return, in order that action might be
taken. On Monday he was on his road
to Dayton, driving a team for the
rancher with whom he worked, and
when near the mouth of Six-mile Can-
yon, was told by some one that his do-
ings were known, and that it would be
very hot for him if he were caught in or
about Dayton. He, left the team at a
ranch close by and immediately disap-
peared, and up to the time our reporter
left on Monday evening had not been
apprehended. It now transpires that
four little girls, daughters of the lead-
ing families of the place, are suffering
from a loathsome disease, imparted by
this fiend incarnate. He should be ap-
prehended, and dealt with in keeping
with his terrible crimes.

SAVING THE PIECES.
Active Operations at the Omega Tall.
wings Mill-150 Tons Worked Every
Day.
The Omega tailings mill, built on the
site of the old Gould and Curry mill, at
the junction of Six and Seven-mile
Canyons, is now working from 150 to
160 tons of tailings and slimes per day.
It is run on slimes and tailings from the
California and Consolidated Virginia
mills, which are carried down in sluices.
Twenty pans are run, and below these
come the settlers, and below the set-
tlers the agitators, the same as in an
ordinary pan-mill. In the pans are
used the Parke rings and mullers. The
settlers and agitators are about ten feet
in diameter and of a proportionate
hight. From the agitators the water,
and mixture of slimes and tailings car-
ried by it, goes to the blanket sluices
below the mill. There are forty-five
men employed in the mill and outside
about the reservoirs, on the drying
grounds, at carting and on the blanket
sluices fifty-five men, or a total of 100
men. J. P. Woodbury, formerly of
the Mariposa mill, is Superintendent,
and W. H. Bottsford is foreman.

A MURDERER'S SUICIDE.


L, C. Hanks Found Dead in
His Prison Cell.


His DeringCr Misses Fire.

But the Prison-Keepers Kindly Allow
Him the Use of a Rifle, .c*

Scandalous Stories Afloat in Con-
nection with the Murder,

Special Dispatche th the Chronicle.]
SAN FRANCISCO, August 8.-After
the rendering of the verdict by the
Coroner's jury last evening, charging
Leslie C. Hanks with the murder of
John E. Daily, Hanks was placed in
one of the tank cells of what is known
as the new prison, which is separated
from the main prison and the connect-
ing door is kept locked. There are
some half-dozen cells in that portion of
the prison opening on the corridor, but
Hanks was the only one confined there.
In the corridor are stored the muskets
and ammunition used by the Safety
Committee during thelate disturbances,
About 1 o'clock this horning a visitor
who wished to see Hanks was taken to
his cell. The gas was turned off. Offi-
cer Coles, accompanying the visitor,
struck a match and by its light saw
Hanks seated in a chair with blood on
the floor. Taking the situation in at a
glance, the officer exclaimed that
HANKS WAS DEAD,
And on lighting the gas found his sur.
mise correct. Hanks was seated in an
arm chair, leaning against the corner of
his cell, dead. A Springfield rifle was
near him, and on examination it was
found he had placed the muzzle of the
gun against his heart and fired. The
ball passed entirely through his body
and struck the iron at an angle, show-
ing plainly how the gun was held. As
the suicide was beyond the reach of
help he was laid out upon the floor of
the cell.
A DELIBERATE "DEED.
A deringer was found with an unex-
ploded shell in it, and a sealed letter
directed to Mr. Julius C. Rees, dated
at 11:33 P. M. On the reverse side of
the envelope, written around the border
and across the paper, were these words:
Coolest act of my life. I had to take
off my boots to pull the trigger with my toe.
P. S.-I tried my deringer, but it missed
fire twice. Now for my musket."
WHERE HE GOT THE RIFLE.
This was written without a tremor.
How the deceased came in possession
I of the rifle is not known. When Hanks
was taken into his cell he was thorough-
ly searched, but nothing was found on
him. About dark, however, a colored
man took into the cell a valise which
was not searched, and in it must have
been the Derringer. Between 6 and 7
o'clock in the evening the cell was
washed, when Hanks was observed to
be conducting himself in a natural way.
It is considered possible that Hanks,
when his cell was being washed out,
was allowed the range of the corridor,
and at that time, with the act fully
outlined in his mind, took and concealed
the weapon. No further attention was
paid to him until, as above stated, a
visitor called on him. No report of the
gun was heard in the prison by anybody.
The doors all being locked and the
walls thick, the prisoner had a clear
field for the perpetration of his self.
murder.
THE TALK OF THE TOWN.
The suicide of Hanks is the talk of
the town this morning, and the manner
in which he procured the weapon with
which he took his life is a point dwelt
upon with much interest. It appears
from the statement of the prison-
keeper (Lindheimer), on duty up to
midnight, that during. the evening he
was in Ranks's cell several times. On
the last occasion Hanks asked him for a
pen, ink and paper, as he wished
to write a letter. The keeper
brought it from his own desk in the main
prison, leaving the door of the cell ajar
during his absence. Twelve muskets
stood leaning against the box about ten
feet from the door of the cell, all the
rest being nailed up in boxes. There
were also several pistol and musket cart-
ridges lying around loose close at hand.
Lindheimer considers it probable that,
during his temporary absence, the pris-
oner took a musket and secreted it
about his bed.
SUICIDE RATHER THAN THE GALLOWS.
To-day's Exchange mentions a rumor
that Hanks committed suicide at the
instigation of his friends, and states
that a well-known citizen said to a.
gentleman as he left the prison yester-
day after an interview with Hanks:
There is nothing to be done but to
get him a pistol"-that it was a choice
between suicide and death on the gal-
lows, as the evidence of the deliberate
murder of Daley was clear and direct.
THE WIVES OF TWO PROMINENT CITIZENS
MIXED UP IN IT.
It also mentions a rumor that two
women whose husbands stand high in
commercial circles here would have fig-
ured very unpleasantly in any legal in-
quiry into the guilt of Hanks, and that
these points were so vigorously pressed
upon the attention of Hanks that he
resorted to suicide as the least of evils.
These rumors may be taken for what
they appear to be worth. They simply
reflect, to some extent, public opinion.
WAS LINDHEIMER PAID $10,000?
The Exchange also, in an interview
with Lindheimer, makes the latter say,
referring to the probability of his being
held responsible for permitting Hanks
to obtain a weapon, "All right," with
intense sarcasm ; "it is all right-I got
ten thousand dollars for this thing, and
I am going to keep every cent of it."
Those who are familiar with Lind-


heimer's disposition and peculiar man.
ner of expressing himself will give such
an utterance from him no attention
whatever, as tending in any way to
show that the prison officials connived
with Hanks' friends to admit the
weapon to his cell.
THE JAILER'S FLIMSY EXCUSES.
Lindheimer states that Hanks' man-
ner during the evening was the farthest
possible removed from that of a man
who meditated suicide ; that he gave
orders concerning his breakfast in the
morning, and other minor matters, in a
most natural manner; that he ( Lind.
heimer ) was not aware that the mus-
kets before mentioned were out of
the boxes where they could be reached,
but that if he had seen them it would
have occasioned him no concern, as any
such action on the part of Hanks never
for a moment presented itself to him.
THE LETTER WHICH HANKS LEFT,
Directed to Julius Reis, contained
merely directions with regard to the
disposition of some few personal effects
belonging to him, and the manner of
his funeral, which he asked should be
conducted in the quietest and most in-
expensive manner.
PARTICULARS OF THE MURDER OF DAILY.
The Post of yesterday gives the fol-
lowing account of the difficulty which
culminated in the murder of Daily:
On Saturday evening last Emil Ku.
randa, a stock broker at No. 413 Cali-
fornia street, with whom Daily was a


silent partnflerf, left the dining room of
the Palace Hotel In Qhnsequence of a
s6Cire headache, and staritd for his
room. As fid Blevator stopped a inIA
stepped out, and Mr, Kotranda, his head
being bent down, collided with him.
He immediately apologized, but the
man, who was L. C. Hanks, saying,
"G- d- you," slapped him several
times in the face. Too ill to re-
ent' Ktranda entered the elevator
aid went tq his room. Sun-
day passed. yesterday morning, as
the guests were going tb breakfast, Ku-
randa, accompanied by Daily, met
Hanks in the corridor, near the dining
hil. Kurunda immediately demanded
an apology from Hanks for his insulting
conduct, which Wis eyen more insult-
ingly refused. Kuranda t the *
STRUCK HIM WITH A SWITCH
And a scuffle ensued. Kuranda not
being Hanks's match physically Daily
interfered, and a moment after he and
Hanks had the fight to themselves,
Kuranda desisting. The fight was ex-
tremely warm, the men being most
exactly alike in high and weight.
Blood flowed freely, and when a police-
man Who was summoned separated
the parties they were on the
marble floro with Hanks underneath.
As a last angry atte'fnpt Hanks clutched
Daily's face with his fingd ialls when
he was being pulled off from him, at-
tempting to gouge out his eyes. The
parties separated, and the affair seemed
to have quieted down. The two men
saw each other in the dining room last
night, nothing being noticeable but a
look of intense malignity with
which Hanks stopped on- his way
out and regarded Daily. This and ru-
mored threats on Hanks' part that there
would be serious work before the affair
was over induced Daily's friends last
night to try to induce him to arm him.
self, in case of an attack. He laugh-
ingly refused, however, declaring that
if Hanks tried to shoot him he would
take his pistol away. Shortly be-
fore 10 o'clock this morning Daily
started alone -for his place
of business, walking along the
west side of Montgomery street. Hanks
was standing in the doorway of the Oc-
cidental Hotel, undoubtedly in waiting,
and upon Daily's approach along the
other side of the street, stepped out
and walked to the corner in front of
Wakelee's drugstore. He was here
seen, by a newsboy, to draw a silver-
mounted, ivory-handled pistol from his
pocket and start across the street. He
met Daily as the latter was in front of
the iron fountain, cooly said
TAKE THAT, YOU BULLY."
And fired. Then coolly pocketing his
pistol, he turned and walked slowly
across the street and down the south side
of Bush street. Daily sank upon the
sidewalk mortally wounded. Edward
Turkington, a salesman in Coleman
Brothers, was at his side in a moment
and he, with others, raised and
carried him across the street to
Wakelee's, where he was laid on a sofa.
Meanwhile a crowd, collected as if by
magic, followed Hanks down the street,
yelling "That's him! that's him!" In
front of the Occidental bar he was col-
lared by a young man named George
Gardner and Officer Langley, and taken
to the Russ House, where he was placed
in a carriage and removed to the City
Prison. Physicians were summoned on
Daily's behalf, and in a few moments Drs
Beverly Cole, L. G. Loring, U. S. A.,
Brigham, and McAlister were in attend-
ance. An examination showed that the
ball had entered at the right nipple and
ranged diagonally across through the
lungs to the left side, inflicting a necessa-
rily fatal wound.
Daily was conscious and said a few
words, his first and only request being to
his partner, Kuranda-" Take me home
to New Haven." Afterwards he said, in
response to a question: '" No; he gave me
no show." He shot me like a coward,"
were his last words.
Daily lingered along for a short time,
the breathing growing heavier and the
eyes more glassy, until, at five minutes to
eleven, the last breath was drawn and the
murderer's work consummated.

BALDWIN AND THE DAUGHTER.
A Theory Upon Which Mrs Cooper's
Ophirilntuence is Accounted for
[Eureka Sentinel, August 7.]
This lady has become somewhat no-
torious in connection with Captain
Curtis' management of Ophir. It might
be inferred that she is a beauty, but such
is not the case. She has, however, a very
handsome daughter for whom, as the gos-
sips had it a year or two ago, Lucky
Baldwin had a great weakness. We are
inclined to believe that it was through
this channel that the thrifty landlady got
the upper hand of Curtis and the Ophir,
Baldwin being a heavy shareholder. In
this connection it may be stated that our
dispatches inform us that Mrs. Cooper
is threatening the Virginia CHRONICLE
with a $60,000 libel suit. But we have
no idea that she will ever bring it. There
was too much truth in all the CHRONICLE
said to render a libel suit probable. The
CHRONICLE did a good work in exposing
the Ophir nastiness and corruption, and
although Sam Curtis characterized it as a
scurrilous sheet, it is quite likely that the
CHRONICLE will live to pursue his ilk on
the Comstock when he shall be known no
more, except to the free lunch stands of
the Bay City.
Why Suffer Dyspeptic Tortures,

timony of the myriads of dyspeptics whom it

turn, you would be convinced. Evidence of its
efficacy is constantly multiplying, and this re-
lates not only to cases of dyspepsia, but also
liver complaint, constipation, urinary and
uterine troubles and malarial disorders. The
success which has attended the great stomachic
has incited unscrupulous parties to manufac-
ture cheap imitations of it, which they attempt
to palm off as the genuine article. But, so fa-
miliar is the public with the real elixir, that
these nefarious attempts are rarely successful.
