A LAND OF HEROES.
The Record of Montenegro for
kcaonstant Series of StrIg oles for
'Freedom-One of the Ilack-lonn-
talneers uoed for Three Turks.
While the forces of the Czar were
slowly massing along the Danube, his
diminutive but gallant ally was left to
bear the brunt of the war. To us it
looks as if the Prince of Montenegro
would have done better to accept the
cession of territory offered by the Sul-
tan than to sacrifice his hardy moun-
taineers to the schemes of Muscovite
ambition. "But be that as it may, there
is no doubt that in the sanguinary
drama now afoot, between the Bos-
porus and the-Adriatic. the most strik-
ing and, anomalous role belongs to the
eopleof the Blaqk Mountain.
,It-willnot lidhsaid henceforth that
the~Mof nteifegro ia less known
to the-Eng3.h speaking public than
that of Monap# r Sain Marino. This
remarkable race -s found of late an
interpreter in Tenn..on, who celebrates
their "rough rock-throne of freedom,"
while a score of writers less eloquent,
among whom Mr. Gladstone and Mr.
Edward Freemaa .may- be cited, have
furnished commentaries to the poet's
text. While these have blazoned be-
fore the eye of the world the astonish-
ing achievements of this people during
the year which. has just closed, they
point out that the salient feature of that
S-.record, namely, the splendid monotony
of victory, was no anomaly in the his-
tory of what the Laureate calls "great
Tsernagora," but had marked the whole
course of a struggle maintained for five
Those who noted from day to day the
incidents ,of the lrief campaign from
July to October, 1876, as they were
,chronicledint our telegraphic dispatches,
must have been equally impressed with B
the unbroken uniformity of Turkish
victories over the Servian forces, and of
T urdsh defeats in the conflict with
Montenegro. Glancing back over the
bulletins and citing pnly the most re-
markable, we find that on July 28 the i
men of Tsernagora encountered Mukh- b
ta- Pasha, and tor once with superior
force. What was the result ? Osman
Pasha was taken, Selim was slain, 4,000 o
Turks were killed, but only 70 men of,
Montenegro.' It follows, when we con-
aider the want of artillery on the part
of the victQrs, that for each slain d
mountaineer more than fifty of his foes t
must have been sacrificed. Again, at l
Medun, on the 14th of August, 20,000 3
Turks were defeated aud 4,700 cut to t
pieces by 5,000 of these stalwart war-
riors. Oa the 6th of September five
battalions from the Black Mountain b
foiled Dervisch Pasha in his movement
upan Piperi, and slew 3,000 of his men. c
On the 7th: of October occurs a slight f
reverse, which is almost instantly trans-
formed into a victory. At that date we
read that Mukhtar Pasha, with 18,000 1
men, druve three Montenegrin battal-
ions back upon Mirotinsko Dolove. t
Here, however, the retreating detach.
ment was raised by a junction with i
Vukotitch to a strength of 6,000, and
being now onetQ three they swept down
upon Mukhtar, and after an action of t
sixteen hours hurled him back to Klo. 1
kuk, leaving 1,500 dead behind him.
Three days later Dervisch Pasha
found himself attacked simultaneously
at various points, and had to retreat
with a loss of .2,000, soldiers. Finally,
on the 20th of October, Medun was
taken, and the Ottoman General fled to c
Seutari. At this point the armistice
-cut short the tale of disaster, when the
southern army under Dervisch had 1
been reduced from 45,000 tO 22,000
men, and the northern, under Mukh-
tar, from 35,000 to 18,000. M.nte-
negro brought into action, in all, 25,000
men, of whom but two-thirds were her
own. On the other hand, the Turkish
force directed against Tsernagora is
stated at the enormous total of 130,000.
Now, when we bear in mind that the
Turkish nizam is a stout soldier, and
at this very time was proving him-
self quite competent to deal with
Servians, who are next of kin to the
Montenegrins, and remember, also, that
b eras were supplied with all the
of modern warfare,
w.. e mountaineers had but few
breecn.oaders, except such. as they
could wrench from their enemies, we
must concede that the above record is
not paralleled in the annals of any other
people, It is a familiar teaching of his.
tory that courage dwells with freedom
on the heights; but none of the moun-
taineers whom poets have made immor-
tal-neither Samnite, Swiss nor Scottish
Highlander-ever made such a daunt-
less.and triumphant stand against odds
The nearest analogue to the present
prowess of the Montenegrins is to be
found in their own chronicles. When
Ivan, the Montenegrin hero of the day,
quitted, in 1484, the sunny tracts be.-
tween the mountain and the sea, where
his people had basked some seven hun.-
dred years, and sought on the rocks
and amid the precipices a bulwark
against the conqueror of his kindred,
S te few fugitives unanimously voted
one fundamental law. It was decreed
that in time of war no son of Tserna-
gora could quit the field without the
order of his chief ; that whenever a
wounded soldier could not be moved
to a place of safety, his comrades must
perform for him the last office of special
friendship, and by hewing off his head
save him from the shame of being
taken alive; that, thirdly, a runaway
should be dressed in woman's clothes
and presented with a distaff, and that
the women striking him with their dis-
taffd should hunt the coward away from
the sanctuary of freedom. How this
covenant is kept we saw last year, and
we may gain further evidence from a
glance at their previous exploits, con-
I'.ing ourselves to the last century.
And here v may mention the impres-
r.ve fact that it had become a rule with
he Ottoman commanders not to attack
Montenegro except with armies equal-
ing or exceeding, sometimes more than
doubling, the-whole number of men,
women and children that it contained.
In 1712, when the population of the
mountain did not reach forty thousand,
fifty thousand Turks crossed the Zeta.
They were presently assailed in their
camp by Danilo, the Montenegrin
leader, who, with a loss of 318 men,
slew at the lowest estimate 20,000. In
1722 the Turks again brought forward
a picked army of 20,000 men under
Hussein Pasha, but 1,000 mountaineers
took this General prisoner and utterly
discomfited his troops. Five years
afterward another Turkish invasion was
similarly defeated, and in y732 Topal
Osman Pasha marched with 30,000
men against an ally of Tsernagora,
but had to fly, with the loss of
his camp and baggage. We will cite
one more specimen from the almost
unbroken series of Montenegrin vic-
tories. In 1768 the country was invaded
by an army variously computed at 67,-
000, 100,000, and 180,000 men. The
Tsernagoran force of 10,000 to 12,000
was, as always, ready to fight, but the
Venetians, truckling to the Porte, for-
bade the entry of munitions of war.
Utter ruin seemed at last to be impend-
ing, when 500 men attacked a Turkish
division and secured a prize of powder.
Thereupon the Montenegrins assaulted
before dawn the combined corps'of the
Pashas of Roumelia from the south and
Bosnia from the north, effecting
the scarcely creditable slaughter of
20,000 Turks, with 3,000 horses,
besides winning an incalculable quan-
tity of colors, arms, munitions, and
baggage. Such, with the single excep-
tion of the campaign under Omar Pasha
in 1852-3-and we ought apparently to
add.the campaign from which the Turk-
ish Generals have just been recalled to
face more urgent necessities upon the
Danube-has been the uniform end of
all modern invasions of Tsernagora, in
which, however, it will be acknowledged
the vast resohirces and persistent effort
of the Ottoman assailants are only less
remarkable than the inflexible resist-
ance of the assailed.
Obviously the record of this people
must interest the naturalist no less
keenly than the historian. Physically,
the men of the Black Mountain are of
exceptional power and stature, and of
great longevity. We are told that the
habits of their life are in an extraordi-
nary degree hardy, healthy and simple;
nor does at seem improbable that the
severe natural conditions of their en-
vironment may have acted as a test and
weeded out from the adult commune ty
all who did not attain to a high stand-
ard of masculine vigor. We do not
refuse to accept as the sober fact of his-
tory, what the English laureate has said
in aonorous verse : that never since
those black ridges drew the cloud and
broke the storm, has there breathed a
race of mightier mountaineers.-N. Y.
Something that no London Journal
Knows Anything About.
NEW YORK, August 2.-The Times'Lon-
don correspondent says : The Vatican has
settled upon a grand plan for a crusade,
to be called the International Catholic
League, and the project has been scanc-
tioned by the Pope. The center of the
new organization is to be Rome, and it
s to have a general fund and be directed
by a committee at headquarters with a
complete administrative organization
with barnches everywhere. The declared
object.of this new body ia the defense of
their right. and freedom, in view of the
aws adopted against" the church and the
Pope, the re-establishment of the tem-
poral power of which the Pope has been
deprived by force, restoration of rights of
the holy see organization and the estab-
ishmentof theOatholic press in every con-
liderable center for supporting of instruc-
tions from Rome.
The calumnies of the opposition press
are to be met by legal proceedings. The
Pope, in a private circular, expresses the
hope that all Catholic associations will
unite in this league, and the nobility and
cergy are ordered to unite in battle for
freedomm and universal sway of the church.
Priests and Bishops are urged to agree;
all for one and one for all. All centers of
honie organizations are to be in tele-
graphic communication direct with the
Vitican. The new scheme is causing ex-
traordinary excitement on the continent
and may in some measure account for the
ucreasiDg friendliness of Italy and Ger-
many. It is a curious fact that not one
London journal has any information on
this remarkable topic, but it is neverthe-
ess a fact which I have on the- best au-
Not Women of that Kind.
General William H. French, lately re-
ieved of his command in West Virginia,
has a facial affection which frequently
causes a sudden contraction of the
muscles, and gives him the appearance of
winking with both eyes at once. On thel
narch to Gettysburg, in the latter part
of June, 1863, the General, accompanied
by his staff, rode up to a Maryland farm
house which he proposed to make his
headquarters for the night. Several fe-
males appeared at the door, when General
French inquired: "Ladies, can you ac-
commodate me and my staff for the
night ?" at the same time discharging one
of his double barrelled winks. The lady
of the house, starting back and casting a
frightful lok at her companions, turned
upon the General, and with all the as-
perity she could summon, replied: "Sir,
v u have made a mistake. We are not
women of that kind!" "Who the h-1
said you were?" roared the General, with
another double wink: "I am General
French, of the Ufion army, and we
simply want shelter for the night." There
was a sniggle among some of the Gen-
era's staff, when he turned around fiercely
and demanded to know who had laughed,
threatening to put the offender uuderarrest
f,,r his levity. Matters being exp ained
the ladies granted him the permission re-
A Fashionable Engilsh Girl.
The diversions of English fashionable
society are various and some of them
vivid. During Ascot week a charming
party were assembled in the neighbor-
hood of the great race-meeting. Among
the number was a young lady whose
prowess across country is proverbial. The
weather being hot some of the ladies ap-
peared at breakfast in demi-toilette, and
after that meal strolled about the lawn.
The heroine of this anecdote, on nearing
some ornamental water, took a flying
header into it and swam about till she had
had enough, when she landed and chal-
lenged a well known sportsman to a race.
Helter-skelter they went, round the lawn,
across the flower-bed, till the lady, finding
herself nearly caught, jumped once more
into the water, followed all too closely by
her companion. In the end both were
severely bumped and had to be fished out
by the bystanders.

have resulted had not the discovery

WATCHED BY DETECTIVES.
A Secret of thie Old New York Post.
ofMce- Hidden Iosts of Obsrrvalhn
from, Which Evepy Movement or
The Clerks was aoted.
The workmen engaged in converting
the old Postoffice building, at Liberty
aud Nassau streets, into stores and
offices for business purposes, have made
some interesting discoveries in the
rambling old structure. The forgotten
vaults, with their gloomy writings and
the crumbling coffins, in which were
laid to rest many of the early settlers
of New York, were described in a
recent article of the Tribune, which
also mentioned the changes to be made
in the building by Wiliam Trist Bai-
ley. who has leased it from the Secre-
tary. The old story-and-a-half," is a
double building, the inside structure
being the Ancient Middle Dutch Church
erected in 1729. The outer building
was constructed around the church by
the Postoffice Department, in 1845,
when the property was purchased by
the Government. In making altera-
tions, yesterday, the workmen discov-
ered that what was apparently the ceil.
ing of the addition to the old building
was in reality a double floor. The
rooms above were used by the Post-
master and his assistant officers. No
one except those in the secret even sus-
pected that this floor was of more than
ordinary thickness, as it was built
against the great walls of the church on
one side, and hid itself on the other
beneath the roof of the more monern
part of the building.
The workmen reported their discov-
ery to Mr. Bailey, and he, with a
Tribune reporter, yesterday explored
the recesses of thp floor so unexpectedly
brought to light. When the workmen
had removed the flooring, it was seen
that the concealed space was from 4 to
4J feet deep, affording ample room for
men to move about. Passages led
entirely around the building. At very
short intervals were found small circu-
lar holes in which were inverted lenses.
Through these a view of the room
beneath was obtained. Back of and
above these lenses were reflectors
which brought before the eye of the
observer the utmost recesses of the Post
office. It was evident that these three
passages and their curiously arranged
miniature windows, were used by detec-
tives during the 30 years of the occupa-
tion of the rambling old building as a
Postoffice. Through these peep holes
the work of the clerks was closely
watched. This theory was confirmed
upon subsequent investigation.
On the west side of the building a
small attic room was found, in one cor-
ner of which was a trap-door leading to
the passages just described. This room
was used by the detectives when not on
watch, aud was unknown to most of the
employes of the Postoffice. Connected
with this room was a set of speaking-
tubes. The tiny windows, already re-
ferred to, were most numerous over the
money-order and registered-letter de-
partments, which a force of detectives
kept constantly under inspection dur.
ing business hours. The peep-holes,
however, took in all the rooms, and
the various clerks, as well as the
thousands of vople constantly going
and coming very unconsciously under
scrutiny. If a detective saw any steal-
ing or any improper action committed
either by a 'clerk or by a person not
employed in the office, the speaking-
tube by his side conveyed a warning at
once to the attic room, and the guilty
person was met at the door, or tapped
on the shoulder in the interior of the
office by another detective. The
closest watch was kept upon the em-
ployes of the Postoffice, and under
this system of espionage the number of
successful robberies, was very small.
The aperatures through which the
detective overlooked the rooms, are in
most cases so small as to be hardly vis-
ible from the apartments below. Some
of them, however, look boldly down
from the casement, but as the planks in
which they are seen were obtained of
very old timber, the holes would
readily be taken for knot-holes.
No one of the persons who were
familiar with the old Postoffice for
thirty years, except ex-Postmasters and
assistants, have known of these spying
places. The oldest employes in the
new Postoffice, when questioned upon
the subject yesterday, were entirely
ignorant of such a lurking place for
officers. ,They have walked for years
through the old building, handled
thousands of dollars, and held impor-
tant trusts, but yesterday they received
their first intimation of the fact that
during all these years they had been
closely watched. The detection, arrest
and conviction of some of their former
associates, always a mystery to them,
were now cleared up by the reporter's
revelations. Many of these old em-
ployes at first refused to believe that
the garret floor of the ancient
building was double, and had been
arranged as described.
The reporter found, last night, a
detective who is now employed at the
new Postoffice, and who previously
served in the old building. Without
referring to his discoveries of the after-
noon, the reporter asked the detective
how the employes were watched in the
old building, and if there were not some
other way of observing irregularities
except by standing in the galleries, and
overlooking the men at work, as at
present, in the new building. The
detective laughed heartily, and looking
in a suspicious manner at the reporter
"Were you the reporter who ex-
plored the Old Dutch Church vaults?
I thought so, and I'll wager you have
discovered the double floor. WVell,
that was the kind of Civil Service re-
form we used in those days. I feel
sorry the old secret is out."
The detective then stated that the
existence of the detectives' attic room,
the trap-door, and the secret passages
were known only to afew persons. The
whole floor was devised by the Post-
master who superintended the erection
of the additions to the old church.
Many robberies by employes were dis-
covered, much to the astonishment of
the guilty persons. The first Postmas-
ter had miniature glass windows in the
walls of his room in the southwest cor-
ner of the building, through which he
kept a watch on his assistants, who, of
course, were not in the secret. The
existence of these watch-holes was com-
municated by each Postmaster to his
successor. The maxim of the Post-
master was, "The detectives and assis.
tants watch the employes and people,
the Postmaster keeps an eye on the
detectives and assistants, and the Lord
will watch the Postmaster."

X'HE LATEST WAR REPORTS.
The war in Europe has assumed
nrew phase, if we are to believe the te
grams, though they are to some exte
conflicting. That the Turks shou
turn on their enemies and give them
terrible beating is not inconsistent wi
their former history, but latterly
-- have learned to think of them as a vi
dAgraded, worn-out race, with not sta
ina enough to make them credital
soldiers. This opinion has be
strengthened also by reports of picu
tion and corruption among the high
officials is the Empire; and it may
just possible that the evil conduct
their leaders has given the tone to t
generally received character of t
Moslems. That they have whipp
the Russians,. and whipped the
badly, too, there can be
doubt, but that they will
able to continue their success
is not at all likely. From the meag
reports of recent battles, it appeal
that the Russians were thrown coi
pletely off their guard by the ease wi
which they found themselves movia
over an enemy's country. Their pas
age of the Danube, of the Balkans, as
the slight interruption they met .wi
almost in front of Adrianople, we
well calculated to deceive them into
want of caution, and if the Turks pr
posely pursued a policy which they e
pected to lead up to it, then it may
said that their good fortune has bee
far greater than their discretion. It
ever safe to permit an enemy to roa
at will over hostile territory, to mal
that a base of operations which shou
be employed in providing for one's ow
soldiers, and the Turks will learn thl
to their cost. They will find the
enemies concentrating now in huj
masses and precipitating themselves
overwhelming strength on their devote
provinces. The lesson of caution ha
been learned by the Russians at a te
riblo sacrifice, but it will be all tl
more indelible, and it will not be su
prising if in twenty days at further
the Russians are knocking at the gati
: horrid feature of the recent battle
S, ha_ s been the atrocities of the Bash
Bazouks. That there should exist a
this late day a civilized race that woul
permit such outrages is a shocking con
mentary on modern civilization. Tha
they should be able to enlist the syn
pathy of any considerable portion c
Christiancommunities seems monstrous
The Russians may have been drive
nto some retaliatory acts which goo
men will condemn, but the acts of th
Bashi-Bazouks in the helpless province
throigh which they have passed hav
been a terrible provocation. Unmiti
gated cruelty can never be county
nanced, no matter what may be it
WE notice that there is a movement
on foot in San Francisco for the estal
.,-lishment of a free- library. A meetih
was held there on Wednesday of thi
week for that purpose. Virginia Cit.
might make a move in -that direction
or at least endeavor to secure a library
free or otherwise. It.is not creditabl
to the enterprise of a town as large a
this that it should have no public
library. We know the city has bees
unfortxawte in this. regard-that fire
r ave several times destroyed valuable
accumulations of books-but that is n
reason for not trying again. There ar
few towns in America where the effect
of a good library would be more power
fully felt than in Virginia.

Ls ously into the principalities.
THE RUSSIANS CONCENTRATING.
es LoNDON, August 2.-A Bucharest
i- correspondent telegraphs : The forces
at recently engaged at Plevna have re-
d tired beyond Osma river. The Six
teenth division of the Fourth corps ii
n- still crossing the Danube at Simnitza
it and will probably reinforce them. All
-. the scattered Russian troops now in
of the principalities have been summoned
into Bulgaria. I understand that the
s. Turks are not advancing eastward from
n their Plevna position, but are passing
d strong forces from Plevna northward
SOME REASONS FOR THE RUSSIAN DE
e VIENNA, August 2.-The Russian
i- defeat at Plevna was due to their being
m- flanked and attacked in the rear by a
s Turkish division of artillery, which
mowed down the Muscovites by hun-
dreds. The Russians were completely
nt routed, but managed to save their can-
non. Osman Pasha admits that both
" sides lost enormously.
g The best military authorities ascribe
s the victory partly to the superiority of
the Martini-Henry rifle (used by the
y Turkish troops) overthe rior order
D, of gun psed by the Russians.
y After the victory Osman Pasha di-
e reacted one detachment of his troops to
advance toward Gubrowa to dislodge
s the Russians from the northern opening
c of the Shipka Pass. Another force was
n dispatched in the direction of Nikopolis
s to engage the Roumanians garrisoning
e the fortress at that place.
FIGHTING NEAR RASGEAD.
S LONDON, August 2.-A Shumla dis-
e patch reports Mehmet Ali attacking the
s Rlussians near Rasgrad. The fighting
. continues and the Turks are reported to
be meeting with success.
TURKS CONCENTRATING AT TIRNOVA.
LONDON, August 3.-A recent move-
d meant of Turks denote a military policy
quite different from that which pre-
vailed until three weeks ago. It is now
the Turks who concentrate, while the
Russians have reason to regret that they
have permitted themselves to distribute
their corps over so wide an area. For
the past ten days Tisnova has been the
point towards which the various Otto-
man armies have been tending to con-
verge, and thlther Osman Pasha was
moving when the Russians met him
near Plevna. To the same point Me-
Shemrnet Ali is said to be marching with a
strong column by Eski-Juna and Os-
Sman-Bazar. From the south Suleiman
Pasha was advanced to Yeni-Saghra, to
push the Russians back into the Shipka
Sand compel them to surrender. It is a
masterly plan, and hitherto has been
FURTHER DETAILS OF THE BATTLE
Between Softcha and Plevna are ar-
riving tonight, and confirm the ac-
count of your correspondent. The de-
feat inflicted upon General Krudener's
army, which formed about one-tenth of
Sthe Russian forces south of the Danube,
is most momentous. The Turks chose
a position naturally strong and wisely
fortified it with defensive works of
every kind, so that their troops fought
under shelter. The Russians were led
on to attack them where they were pro-
tected in their trenches and fell by
thousands. The latest report places
the total Russian killed at 6,000. The
Turkish losses were also very heavy.

- Comments of the New York Press on
Nzw YoRKK, August 2.-The Herald
a (Ind.) says: The Republican State
Convention met at Cleveland yesterday
and, we are glad to say, adopted a plat-
a form which, at least, by contrast de-
serves the support of honest and intelli-
gent men, and which is likely to carry
the State for the Republicans, in spite
- of many disadvantages under which
they enter the canvass.
A Herald Washington special says :
SIn regard to the Ohio Republican Con-
Svention, the President felt, as he be-
lieved every one did, a certain degree
of interest in it; but the statements so
generally current that he was anxious
his administration should be indorsed
elicited from him only good-natured
laughter, accompanied with the em-
phatic assurance that he did not car-
a whether it was or not, and he dismissed
further consideration of the subject,
, saying : "Oh, it's all right."
r The Times (Rep.) editorially praises
the Ohio Republicans for their action
The T-ibune (Rep.) says: The Ohio
a convention has done worse than it
should and better than we hoped. It
has not demanded the repeal of the re-
sumption act, has not been lukewarm
in its support either of the Southern
policy or civil service reform of the
President, and has not gone utterly
daft on the silver question. All this is
better than the many-voiced prophets
of evil have for weeks been loudly pro-
dicting; but the convention goes far
enough about silver. Its proposal for
its remonetization, however, is coupled
with a clause that coinage must be so
regulated as not to place us at a dis-
advantage with other nations, and this
is about all that saves it. The labor
plank (which is understood to be
Stanley Matthews's contribution) will
be regarded with suspicion.
THE PRESIDENT GRATIFIED.

How the South Feels Toward Hayes.
WASHINGTON, August 3.-Major

much gratified with the very kind sen-
timents of the President toward the
South. The President said that he
hoped to be able to visit New Orleans
during the holiday vacation of Con-
gress. Hearsey says there is literally
no opposition to President Hayes in
Louisiana, and the people of the entire
South entertain as friendly a feeling
toward the President as do those of

Fire and Loss of Life.
CINCINNATI, August 3.-Pestering's
cigar-box factory was burned this
morning. Twenty-two girls were at
work in the upper stories, and it is re-
r ported that four of them perished in
n the flames.
FOUR BODIES RECOVERED.
CINCINNATI, August 3.-The fire in a
box manufactory this morning origin-
ated in a cellar. An attempt was mnadc
to extinguish it without the aid of the
, fire department, but was unsuccessful.
* After reaching the first floor the flames
spread with fearful rapidity and in a
f short time reached the roof. The em-
ployes, mostly girls, were at work in the
* third and fourth stories. Some escaped
* through the windows upon the roofs of
other buildings, but it is feared that
eight or ten perished in the flames.
Four bodies have been recovered, so
f disfigured as to be almost beyond
recognition. Bits of clothing led to the
1 identification of Mary Nurre, Mena
Kneb, Frank Shudair and Anna Patger.
s John Blanchard, the engineer of the
. factory, died soon after from injuries
Two girls and one man, Isaac Sco-
o field, were so badly burned that they-
will probably die.
From the factory the fire spread to
six frame and one brick dwelling, which
f will prove a total loss. The amount
of the losses is not yet estimated. The
insurance, so far as known, is $15,000.
Suicide of a Californian In New York.
NEW YORK, August 3.-John Fran-

brains out. The cause of the suicide is
variously attributed to losses at faro
and in business. On the body of Mur-
phy were found a number of letters.
One stated that if he ever found him-
self driven to the wall by bad luck he
should commit suicide. Another stated
that his mother lived in Elgin, Ill., and
that he (Murphy) was recently from-
San Francisco ; that he had $2,300 on
deposit in the Odd Fellows' Savings
Bank, San Francisco, and some prop-'
erty in the toi n of Hollister,
California, all of which he bequeathed
to his mother. His will, the letters
stated, was deposited with the National
Gold Bank and Trust Company of San
Francisco. The body of the suicide
was sent this afternoon to the morgue.-

CAUGHT IN JAY GOULD'S TRAP,
The Misfortunes of Knightly dirJi
How Keene and Gould Went in To.
gether," andmi ow Keene Was Left
In-' ihe Cause of Selover's Assault
The CHRONICLE'S New York dis-
patches of yesterday told of an assault
on Jay Gould, the great Wall-street
operator, by Major A. A. Selover, who
picked Gould off his feet and threw
him down a coal-hole in the sidewalk.
Last night's dispatches give some fur-
ther interesting details as so the cause
of the assault.
JIM KEENE RESOLVES TO SHOOT GOULD.
One account says : "It was known
that on Tuesday evening of last week
Keene, who became heavily loaded
with stocks on account of the great
strike, went to Jay Gould for assist-
ance, and it was accorded to him on
condition that he turned over 70,000
shares of stocks, to cover Gould's
shorts, at about three per cent. below
closing prices. The market went up
until Monday, and Tuesday last, when
Lake Shore seemed to be for sale when-
ever the quotation reached 52, Keene's
brokers discovered that Jay Gould, as
soon as the market had gone up to the
points from which it broke upon the
progress of the strike, had been selling
stocks freely, and that his pretended
friendship was only a myth. Russell
Sage was a partner to the bull move-
ment, and he remained solid on Keene's
side. Gould had tricked them both,
and both sought an interview, and,
after a short and sharp conversation,
Keene decided upon shooting his be-
trayer, but was prevented by Russell
Sage, who rushed in between the en-
A MORE COMPLETE STORY.
NEW YORK, August 3.-The Times
has the following on the Gould-Selover
tencontre yesterday: In March last
Keene came to this city from San Fran-
cisco with a fortune variously estimated
at from six to eight million dollars,
which he had made in the bonanza
strikes. At that time a combination
was forming against Jay Gould, who was
bearing Western Union stock. Keene
readily went into the pool, in which his
associates were D. P. Morgan, S. L.
Mills (formerly Gould's broker), Russell
Sage and several others. Western
Union was sent up ten per cent. (from
$66 to $76) and Gould was badly
squeezed. While this was going on
Keen e became friendly with Major
A. A. Selover, who was then doing but
little, it is said, having met with mis-
fortunes some time before. Keene
needed a monitor in the New York
market, and Selover was pleased to act
in this capacity for him.
JIn I AND JAY GO IN TOGETHER.
After a few days Selover-so the sto-
ries run-formed the idea of bringing
Gould and Keene together, believing
with their joint capital they could con-
trol the market in every nse, and that
consequently he (Selover) would go to
the feont rank of the operators once
more. He introduced the two men and
they made a combination. Keene sold
his Western Union stuck, its price fell,
and Gould was released from his di-
lemma, while the bulls, it is said, met
with large losses. Keene then, of
course, became a bear of Western Union
with Gould. In this enterprise they
were joined by Russell Sage and Garri-
son. Large blocks of the shares of the
Atlantic and Pacific telegraph, or as it
is commonly known on the street,
"Apple Tree telegraph," were bought
by each member of the pool. ThIe pur-
pose of this was to keep up the price of
that stock and depress that of the West-
ern Union. This pool continued with-
out its members having trouble with
one another in regard to its affairs until
a few days ago.
JAY GOES OUT ALL ALONE,
In the meantime, Keene and Gould
had operated together in some other di-
rections, and it is reported that the
former became angered several times by
discovering that his partner was doing
the opposite of what he had promised
to do. Still, no overt act was displayed
if the hostility growing up between
bhem. Previous to the beginning of the
railroad strikes, Keene bought large
lots of stocks with the purpose of bull-
ing the market on his individual ac-
count. When the railroad men became
deminonstrative, Keene grew alarmed
and went to Gould for help. The latter
was at the time short on the market
and so he agreed to aid Keene on condi-
tion that he should have, below market
'ates, enough stocks to cover his shorts.
'his was granted, and in return he
agreed to assist in keeping up the mar-
ket so that Keene might retrieve him-
self. Several days later Keene discov-
ered that Gould, instead of keeping his
agreement, had begun to sell his stocks
and had thus depressed the market.
About the same time Gould and Garri-
ron left the "Aple Tree" pool and sold
their stock, so that it went into the
hands of Keene and Russell Sage, and
began to bull Western Union.
THE TREACHEROUS JAY BIRD IN DANGER.
These discoveries maddened Keene
end he went to Gould on Wednesday,
end, it is said, threatened him with
bodily violence. In corroboration of
he report of Gould's action with re-
spect to the Atlantic and Pacific pool,
Russell Sage is reported to have said
yesterday : Gould gave us Iis con-
tract, and that was no good. He gave
is his word, and that was no good."
Major Selover, who was with him in
all his operations, became as much in-
censed at Gould's actions as Keene, and
me denounced Gould on the part of his
friend and on the part of himself, and
lhe assault he committed yesterday was
a logical result of his previous talk.
The feeling on Wall street is one of in-
dignation that so big a man as Selover
should have assaulted a small, weak
man like Gould. Further feeling is,
however, that if Selover had not acted
n such a cowardly manner and aroused
sympathy for Gould, Wall street would
have been disgraced by a terrible
tragedy. Keene's blood is up, .it is
aid, and he believes in California
WHAT THE PAPERS SAY ABOUT IT.
The Sun denounces Selover, and,
hopes he will be put in the Toombs,
ike other cowardly bullies.
The Tribune is silent about the as-
sault on Gould.
The Herald says : We think it would
be good for Wall street and the whole
country were all these speculating
harps dropped from a balloon, as
Keene is said to have remarked, into
lhe middle of the ocean and swallowed
ry the great sea serpent. Nobody

THE NEW POLICEMEN.
The Board of Supervisors held an-
other special meeting yesterday and
remedied the difference that had arisen
betwee-n +em and the safety committee
by a resolution ju make the salaries of
the new policemen $100 ns.d. of $150.
A resolution was offered asking an In"

until the meeting of the legislature,
but it was lost. W. T. Coleman, ]tresa
ident of the Committee of Safety, pub-

Executive Committee have undertaken
to select men to be appointed on the
new force, he appeals to each citizen to
refuse his signattire to every application
for a position on the force where he
does not know the applicant well, where
he does not feel confident that the ap-
pointee will reflect credit upon his spon-
sors and where he cannot, after due
deliberation, certify that the applicant
possesses and will in the public service
manifest unfaltering resolution, unim-
peachable integrity and untiring perse-
ACTS OF INCENDIARISM.
On Wednesday morning a fire was
discovered under a house on First street,
near St. Mary's Hospital A gentle-
man gave the alarm and with the assist-
ance of other residents put out the fire
before much damage was done, This
is one of a number of attempts made
recently to fire buildings in that vi-
cinity. Families have received letters
warning them against buying vegetables
from Chinamen, and threatening them
in case they persisted in patronizing
Chinese vegetable peddlers. A number
of citizens in Alameda, employing Chi-
nese help, have been notified by postal
cards, signed "Hounds," to employ
white men and women.

A stranger went to the Mermaid
baths, at North Beach, on Tuesday af-
ternoon, hired a bathing costume and
swam out a long distance, since which
he has not been seen. He was well

business man. No papers were found
in the pockets of his clothing by which
he could be identified.

cently was supposed to be doing well.
