Tlie l'erfurinance' Interfered With Mere
In the l'.vcnlna Than In the After
noon Ventures of the Ills Shew,
Tlie Forepatlgh show was In hard luck en
Tuesday evening In Heading, when they
were obliged te dismiss the audience, giv
ing the money back te theso who pur
chased tickets, en account of the heavy
rain. There wero several kinds of weather
lit Lancaster, and plenty of rain Wednes
day, but It cannot be said that the show was
a foser bv It.
After tlie fine woather which prevailed
during the forenoon the clouds began te
galher In tlie afternoon nnd it had every
appcarauce of rain. This did net deter
people from going te the circus, however,
and they went out by thousands te the
park. The tent was (lacked with people
and about the limn that the porrnrmance
opened tlie rain began falling In torrents.
As the canvas !s net wator-proef, the water
came through and for a time It looked as
though the performance would have
te be stepped. The circus poeplo
did net wish te dlssappelnt the
peeple or glve back the tnoney and tlie
show went en. Theso lu the audience, who
were fortuuate enough te have umbrellas,
put them up and kept reasonably comfor
table. Many, however, were pretty well
water-soaked, and the gtennd bocame sort
and sl!pery. The rain lasted for less than
a half hour, after which the sun came out
and shene brightly fur evor an hour. Fer
a time but few clouds could be seen, and
it loekod llke n pormanenl clearing up.
Alter four o'clock another heavy rain set
iu and lhe poeplo caught It en Ihelr way
A two-hour porfermnnco was given, not
withstanding the weather, and tbe enter
tainment was about tlie same as overy day,
although il was cut somewhat. Tbe
nudlence seemed te enjoy it and very few
loll tlie font. Thcro'are very many geed
features Iu tlie show. The performance In
the two rings Included riding by Orrin
Hellis, William Wallctt and Miss Jesie
Asliten, k trapeze act of Mile. Tourner,
feats of strength by Herr Jagendorfer, the
muscular German, who handles huge can
non halls with ease and grace, perch act of and Alten, Adam Forepaugh's
trained elephants and stallions, the very
funny act of Kelly .t Ashy, the "Chl "Chl "Chl
nose laundry, sports," Vc. Captain
Hegardils and Ills talented sons openod
the Wild West porfermnnco by giving
an exhibition nf rille, pistol and shotgun
sheeting that was wonderful. Xoxtcime
the scenes of life ou the praiiie, Introducing
a Virginia reel en herseback by cowboys
and girls, tlie attack ou the old stage coach,
the pursuit and hanging or a horsethlof,
H)iiy exprcss, riding of bucking horses,
Ac This wound up with a reproduction
of tlie battle or tlie Little Dig Hern, In
which tbe gallant Custer lest his life. Cel.
Frank I). Yates took tlie character of
Cuxtcr, mid in this exciting scene, during
which a great deal of powder was wasted,
all tbe Indians, cowboys, seldiers, and
ethors wero seen. This act was very ox ex
citingand was loudly applauded. Although
many mere Indians wero seen in the
thew than before, the Wild West part
is net as strong as bofero. The hip
podrome races, which wero of the regula
tion kind, wero given, and the show wound
up with young Forepaugh's great forty ferty forty
lierso act, which is Hemclhlng startling.
A conceit followed tlie circus preper and it
contained numerous clever acts. The mo me mo
nagerie included u herd of elephants and a
fine collection or wild animals.
After the rain that fell at lhe clese of tlie
afternoon performance, the heavens bocame
heavy again ami remained in that condi
tion. The peeple secmed anxious te see
the show, however, and at the evening
performance there was another very large
crowd, especially of city poeplo. The
visitors lowed tne mcuagorie and scarcely
had they taken their seats for tlie perform
ance when another heavy rain begun. Tlie
performance did the same, but the rain
proved a great obstaclc,fer the water peured
through the canvas In streams. Tbe
rings were muddy and the performers
looked like a let of peeple who bad
been diving with Paul lleytnn. The
show was kept up for an hour, when the
circus peeple became as much disgusted as
lhe audicuce nnd tbe porlermanco was
brought te a clese. Tbe people were net
only dampened but they did net secure
their money's worth anil lu consequenco
there was very much giuinblliig. As the
circus poeplo could net make the woather
they probably did as well as pessible un
der tbe circumstances.
One or the best acts In the circus was by
a fakir, who cntercd tbe tent whlle the rain
was In progress and sold 75 cent umbrellas
for $1.50.
Scarcely was tbe show concluded when
the large I'orce or can vasmen wero at work
iu all tlie rain tearing down and packing
up tbe tents, and removing everything lu
the cam. At an early hour this morning
the last train with the show left for Leb
anon, where it exhibits t enlay.
An rightcen-Yisir-Old Hey Who Weighs
Itut Thlrty-I'lve Pounds.
Among lhe poeplo who applied for lodg
ing at Die station heuse last evening were
Jacob O i ecu and his seu. Charles. When
they came te tbe station heuse tbe elllcers
wero struck by tbe queer appearance or the
boy, but they seen round out that be was a
living skeleton. Tlie young fellow Is 18
years or age but only weighs thirty-live
ieuuds. His arms are net thicker than
small canes and bis legs are lu proportion,
whlle be Is or geed height and In lhe best
of health. The boy has been ou exhibition
at dilferent museums and was billed as
" Shadow Green." He was te have openod
au engagement at the SUir museum, Ne. 531
liewery, New Yerk City, en Monday, May
5th, but the proprietor or the place
failed te take out his license In time and
he was net allowed te open. The boy was
thou out or employment and the father,
who lives in Pittsburg, went en te New
Yerk te take him home. Most or what
little money they bad they spent trying te
get work, but they managed te make tbelr
way as rar us Lancaster. Having nothing
left they stepped off here and went te the
station house. The boy exhibited printed
bills or several houses Iu which he
worked and among tlie company list or the
Star museum, for lhe week that he was te
have worked, there was tbe naine of
Walter Wentworth, the contortionist new
in this city. Beth the father and son ap
pear te be very rosjiectable poeplo, and the
furmer served lu the army. Mayer
Clark contributed snine cash te them und
had a bed made for thorn In his hearing

morning a collection was taken up at the
station house. A sulllclent sum was raised
te take the couple te Harrisburg, where
they will remain until they ratio enough te
take them home.
Swept Inte a Sewer mid I) row nod.
The rain storm which visited Heading en
Wednesday evening was ery severe. It
was u veritable cloudburst. The streets
were flooded and cellars Inundated. A
sewer at Third and Walnut streets caved
lu, and Hubert Carl, the KJ-year-eId son of
Select Councilman J, II. Keppclman, was
swept Inte it and drowned. His body has
net been rocevored. The northeastern sec
tion of the city was badly Heeded, the
waters carrying ever tiling before them.
Three feet of water rushed Inte the forge
or the Heading Iren company, putting out
the fires and doing ether Jaiuage. The
wind during all this time became a regular
hurricane and in the country districts con
siderable damage was done. Old Inhabi
tants say they never sw such an electric,
storm and cletul-hurst combined.

Husband, Wins nnd Hen Found Dead In
Their Heme.
News has reached Washington, Pa., of a
horrlble triple murder committed near
llentleysvllle, a small country town en the
National pike, sixteen miles east of Wash
ington, and in the heart of a rich agricul
tural section. It is remete from telegraph
and telephone, and the meagre details of
the crime were obtained by special mes
senger. The family of Jehn Crouch, composed of
himself, his wife, Kllui, and a l!-ycar-eld
son, Andrew, lived within a mlle of the
town en a farm. Crouch was wealthy,
and was reported te keep a large amount'ef
money In tne house. Wednesday morning
a neighbor who went te the house en busi
ness found it closed, There was no an
swer te repeated knocks, and ha went In.
Then he found that the heuse had been
ransacked from top te bottom.
In their boil room, en the first lloer, lay
CmucIi and his wlfe with their threats cut
fiouiearte ear, whlle upstairs the young
man was found murdered lu the same
manner. All the bodies were cold, and
the murder had appatetitly been committed
early in the night. An alarm was instantly
given, and the heuse and vicinity wero
thoroughly searched.
Tracks about the premises Indicated tint
no less than four men had taken part In the
diabolical crime. Frem their position it
was evident that Crouch had been killed
almost instantly. Mrs. Crouch had
struggled hard, and her bleed was spattercd
all evor the room, the death chamber pre
senting a horrible sight. The boy, Andrew,
met his death as easily rs his father. The
opinion prevails that all three were chloro
formed befere the slaughter began,
The house had been thoroughly ransacked
by the murderers, drawers were openod,
and everything or value removed. Search
ing iiartles were Immediately formed,
and the whele neighborhood is being pa
trolled for the capture of suspicious porseu?.
It Is reported that suspicion rests en a
mimber of persons iu llentleysvllle, w he
have disappeared nnd cannot be found.
At a late hour Wednesday night no arrests
had been made. Ne oneknowH hew much

Argument Fer it Ily the Xntleiml Lec
turer orthe riirmurV Alllnuce.
Wasiiiniuex, May 15. The hearing of
the Farmers' Alllance representatives was
continued befere the ways and mams com cem com
mltleo this morning. Mr. Livingston, the
national lecturer of lhe organization, took
up the argument, He said that he bad
found much misapprehension lu Washing
ton respecting the objects or the alllance.
They had net beset Congress; but, as
Mr. Flewer had suggested, they haiMeen
attending strictly te their own business.
A wrong Impression ene without a word
of truth was clandestinely socking te dis
place the ruling political parties. The f ar
mor had been told that the preper adjust
ment or tariff and of the sllver question
wns nil that was neccssiry far the rarmer's
rolier. Tariff had nothing te de with the
matter recommended by the alllance.
The tariff flxed the price of furmer's pur
chases; the sub-treasury bill fixed the
price at which he sold his goods. The al al
llaneo representatives had net been inso inse inso
lent; at least thore was no Intention of
being Insolent. They had talked plainly,
straight from the shoulder. They asked
that Congress de what It could te pass the
sub-treasury bill. Firty-elglit homes of
farmers hud been sold nt mictien lu Con
necticut In one day this week. The farm
ors wauled roller; they knew hew te get
It. They had nbeut made up thelr minds
te let partisan politics nlone for n whlle at
lloprescnliitlvo Clemniits, of Goergta,
had sought te have the farmer's laud taken
as security in national banks. Somehow
Congress bad rofnsei te de it. The na
tional bank systeui must be broken up,
Farmers had te secure leans at excessive
rates or Interest. Thore was no Justifica
tion for that under Ged's bread heavens.
Mr. Flower asked if the manufacturer
did net have te pay the same Interest,
Mr. Livingston replled that he did net ;
there was a difference hotweou watend
stock concerns and rumors' real oitate,
yet the latter was made lhe worst security
In this country. Continuing his argument
Livingston said If Cougress refused te ap
prove tlie sub-treasury plan thou let It re re ro
mevo restrictions hedging lu the national
banking systeui. The farmer would care
nothing affcut trusts und combina
tions and concentration of money ir
they could held thelr crops In sub
treasuries and wero net compeHcd as
at present te soil thein nt stated
times, In Octelinr in the Seuth. He
could thus cscnpe the speculator. It
would be n Ged-send te the country te pass
the sub-treasury bill for the reasen (If for
no ether) that tliore would net be a bucket
shop leff in the United States. The day of
speculation in crops would be dene away
with and produrer und oensumer would be
brought together.
In concluding Mr. Llvln'nii said : "Bo "Be "Bo
pert the bill te the Heuso ii.--Mno hhue
se that It could be ncted upon. f)(i't make
il a question or tarill or or politics, but let
the bill stand en Its merits."
