GENERAL SPOBTISG SEWS OF THE DAT
Little Jockey Bergen arrived in the city
yesterday. He is the little fellow whom
Captain Sam Brown, of this city, has signed
to ride for the Brown stable next year. This
is Bergen's first visit to Pittsburg, and he
has come here to have a business conversa
tion with the Captain. Undoubtedly, if
loots go for anything, the Captain has se
cured a good looking and shrewd little
fellow to pilot his champions next season.
Bergen is really a bright lookinc youth, and a
few minutes' talk with him reveals the fact
that he is not disposed to tell anything near all
he knows. He was deeply Interested in a pool
game at the Monongahela House yesterday
when a Dispatch representative met him.
During a long conversation Mr. Bergen said:
"I have just come from the East, and am on
my way to Mobile to assist Mr. Rogers in
working the horses of our stable. I have an
engagement to meet Captain Brown to-morrow,
when we will talk over some business re
lating to me and the horses. There is really
nothing that will interest the public in what
we'll talk about as far as I know. I should
have been here sooner, but
JIT BROTHER GOT INJURED
at Guttenberg, and that kept me Bast longer
than I anticipated.
"Why, speaking of our stable. I think we
have a good lot this year. Of course I don't
know any of the Captain's horses familiarly,
but I know one or two of them to think very
well of them. I know of Reporter and
Defaulter, and I think they are both
good horses. I don't want to say anything flat
tering about either of them, because I expect
to ride one of -them in the Suburban. How
ever, I think well of Reporter, and I will not be
surprised to find that be will make the crack 3-year-olds
go for everything they are worth this
year. I will be able to ride at 100 pounds, and
that will enable me to take almost any mount.
IV. L. Scott, of Erie, has made good offers for
rue to ride for him this season. I have con
tracted with Captain Brown, and really there
has been no trouble about the affair. Every
thing has been done in the most legitimate
way, and I don't hear of anybody crumbling.
Of course I have a strong hope that Captain
Brown's stable will come to the front this year.
I know that I mean to try my best."
"You and little Barnes may come often to
gether," was suggested, and Bergen said:
XOX AFRAID OF BABJfES.
"Well, we may, but while I acknowledge
Barnes to be an able horseman, 1 will never be
timid to be in a race with him. I, without
egotism, think that I will comfortably bold my
own against Barnes, and he is a good jockey.
I have been in the business several years, and I
know everybody against whom I will contest.
I repeat, therefore, with confidence that we
will be in line."
Speaking of the prominent 3-year-olds, Mr.
Bergen said: "There has been much said about
Proctor Knott. He is a good horse, no doubt,
but I think that there are several 3-year-olds
better than he is. Salvador, Galen and the
Favordale colt are, in my opinion, better horses
than Proctor Knott. I really think any of
them can beat him. Of course, while talking
about these horses, I don't want to mention
Reporter, not that I deem him inferior, but
because I am personally interested in him. I
merely say that Reporter is a good horse."
"What do you think of the approaching
"Well, now, let me tell you frankly that it is
ridiculous for anybody to becin'now and
predict winners for that race. There are lots
of cood norses in the handicap, but who knows
whether or not they will be in condition. Many
strancje things will happen before the suburban
is run. and I certainly would not be so foolish
as to name any horse as a probable winner. J?o
sensible man will begin and make tips now. Of
course there are horses in the race that will
run well, but then: are others that may run
better when the day of race arrives. None of
us know what any particular horse will be like
when the race day comes.
"The Dwyer Bros, are all right and have some
good horses. Hanover is in as good condition
now as ever he was in his life. He is as sound
and bright as a new dollar, and depend upon it
he will run some this vear. Mr. Shepard says
he was never better, and Hanover is a good
Mr. Benren will leave the citv for Mobile to
day, where he will locate until the spring meet

MIDDLETOWN IN LINE.
Washington County Ball Player Gettlnc
Rendy for the Season.
rSFECIAt. TZLEGnAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
AVest Middletowx, Pa., February 1L
The AVestMlddletown baseball club will be in
the field again next season with a first-class
team. The AVest Middletowns hvre held the
championship of AVashington county for the
past three seasons, although the AV. B. Cains,
of Bargettstown, disputes our claim of "cham
pions" last season. There being no regular
schedule ot games played, both clubs base their
claim to the championship on the fact that
neither lost a single game. Neither of these
clubs would play the other. Lane and Boyd do
ing the battery work for both clubs, and neither
club would play without this battery.
Negotiations have been made with a good
battery in Pitubnrg. with good cTxnces of se
curing it, and efforts mil be mac to secure
deaf mute Sawhlll, right fielder and change
catcher of last year's Lafayette clnb. Lace and
Boyd will not be with us, as they have good
offers from minor lcagt cl ubs. They can hold
their own In any minor league, being not only
an excellent battery, bo first-class batters, and
Boyd a very fine base ru'uier.
A Female Contest.
Chicago, III., FeDrnary 1L Beginning to
morrow night, between 25 and 40 female pedes
trians will start on a six days go-a'-yon-please
over a specially prepared track in the Second
Regiment Armory. According to the published
conditions the contest is for three prizes of $1,
000, $500 and $250, to go to the three who shall
finish first, second and third, respectively.
Among the entries already made are the names
of Mile, la, ChapeUe, Aland aiiller, Lucy Wol-
liver. Mile. Boso, Miss Hubbard, Mme. Browne,
Fanny Smith and May Williams. The Second
Regiment band has been engaged for the occasion.
THE FEMALE BICYCLISTS.
Great Six-Day Knee Stnrted In New York
Piiubure'a Contestants. .
New York. February 11. A slx-diys' inter
national bicycle raco for women, of eight hours
daily, for the championship of the world, be
gan this afternoon in Madison Square Garden
at 3 o'clock. The track is the usual one of
eight laps to the mile, but it is not thrown up
at the turns, a fact which militates against the
making of fast time. The prizes are 40 per
cent of the gate money, divided: 40 per cent of
it to the winner, 30 per cent to the second
and the remainder will be given to those who
make more than 400 miles. There are not huts
in the building, the ladies retiring to their
hotels at the end of their day's task. It was
the original intention to have Miss Sadie
Martinot start the race, but to-day she sent her
regrets. Following is the list ot competitors:
Miss Hilda Suallor, Miss Jessie Woods, Miss
Kitty Brown, Miss Jessie Oaks, the English
champion: Miss Elsa Von Blumen, the Ameri
can champion; Miss Lula Hart, Miss Maggie
McSbane, Miss Mattie Stanley, Miss Helen
Baldwin, Miss Hattie Lewis, Miss. Louise Fox,
the Jersey Buttercup; Miss Gertrude Frankel,
Miss Louise Armaindo, the champion of the
world; Miss May Allen.
The start was made by Tony Pastor. Miss
Lewis was the first away, with Miss Hart next.
The start was a flving one, and the others were
strung out behind nearly all the way around
the track. Miss Lewis was the first lady to
scorealap. Thefiist mile was made by Miss
Armaindo in 3 minutes SO seconds. Miss Von
Blumen being a good second. The spectacle
presented by the gayly dressed girls as they
sped around the immense hall was a wonder-lull-
picturesque and animated one. The great
interest centers in Miss Armaindo, who is a
wonder among females. She is stout and
wonderfully strong. It is! said that she can
lift 00 pounds dead weight, without wearing
harness. The racing begins daily at 3 P. at.,
and continues until I A. St., with a rest from 6
to 8 r. M. The score made in the first three
hours to-dar was: Oaks, 37; Armaindo, 39;
Suallor,33; Brown, 83; Hart, 29; Baldwin, 37;
Fox. 6; Stanlev, 39; Woods, 3S; Von Blumen. 37:
McShane, 25; Lewis, 36.
LOCAL BALL GOSSIP.
3Iannccr Swartwood Hufttline Abilities
An Offer for Allen.
Ed Swartwood, manager of the Hamilton
Baseball Club, is still hustling for more play
ers. He expects to sign Schellhause, of Syra
cuse. Fry, of the East End, may possibly play
with thtTHamiltons at any rate, if he does not
he will not play with the St. Joe club, although
he has signed there. Fry's mother is not in the
best of health and be does not want to go so far
away from home as St. Joe. If be cannot ob
tain his release from that club he intends to
remain at home and play with the East End
Swartwood yesterday made a definite offer
to Manager Phillips for Allen, the young man
recently signed by the local club. Mr. Phillies
positively refused, under any circumstances, to
transfer Allen to any club. The manager said:
"We'll keen Allen and 6ee what he is worth."
Allen will, therefore, stay here, and the refusal
to let him go means that the local authorities
think much of him.
MR. BRUSH IN TOWN.
The Indinnapolis President Has a Confer
ence With Mr. Ximick.
President Brush, of the Indianapolis club.
somewhat mysteriously arrived in the city yes
terday, and just as mysteriously left it. He
stated that he had missed connections with
the trains on his way home from the East. He
was. however, closeted with President Nimick
for about two hours, but all parties connected
with the club denied that anything worthy of
public noiice was discussed.
Last evening, however, it was reported that
Mr. Brush desires to have a pitcher from Pitts
burg, and that he is'prepared to make a deal in
which Denny can be handed ovt to this club.
The pitcher desired is neither Morn's. Galvin
nor Conway, so that it must be Staley. This was
the rumor," but club officials say there is no.
truth in it.
Mr. Brush stated that the prospects of the
Indianapolis club are good. He argues that the
recent transfer of the club franchise was a
A NEW LEAGUE.
Players Up the Mononcnhela Valley
Making a More.
A movement has been started to organize an
other new baseball league in the vicinity of
Pittsburg. A baseball enthusiast from Monon
ganela City was in town yesterday and defi
nitely stated that efforts have been commenced
up the Monongahela river to form a new
amateur league. He stated that the prospects
of success are so assuring that no doubt exists
as to the formation of the organization.
It is intended that the new league will be
made up of six clubs, and already that number
has been secured. Each club slated represents
a city or town that is well able to upporta
club. Tho clubs proposed are as follows:
Brownsville, West Elizabeth, Mnnougahela
City, California. Bellcvernon and Washington,
Pa. A meeting of representatives of these
clubs will beheld shortly to take definite action
on the matter.
A PITTSBURGER HONORED.
Lowery AYill bo Ono of Woodward's
E. C Lowery, the well-known local pool-
seller, arrived from the AVest yesterday. It-
will be interesting to local sporting people to
know that "Larry" has been encaged as one of
the auctioneers in the great AVoodward horse
sale at jexington. it commences ontneitstn
instant and continue 12 days.
The sale will probably be one of the largest
ever held at Lexington, as there are no less
than 00 horses catalogued for sale. This num
ber includes Bell Boy, the horse recently
bought for $50,000. There are many other prom
inent horses to be sold. Many Pittsburgers at
tend this sale every year, and a catalogue can
be obtained free at Mashey's billiard rooms.
New Orleans Winners.
New Orleans, February 11. The weather
was fine to-day but the track was heavy.
First race, half-mile No More won In S7
seconds: Jim D, second: Breakdown, third.
Second race, four and a half furlongs Mollie
Hardy -non in 1:05; Little BeES, second; Lamont
Third race, five-elchthsof a mile Mary Foster
won in 1:14; Kcsaraless, second: Countess, third.
Fourth race, six and a hair furlongs Prltchett
won In 1:31; Henry Hardy second, and Ocean
Manager PniLurs means to try Allen,
Garfield and Lauer thoroughly.
The McAuliffe and Myers fight may take
place at any hour. McAuliffe is a strong fa
vorite. If Brush wants Staley it may not be wide of
the mark to say that we may need him more
than we need a third-base player.
The Boston directors have engaged a young
Hercules from ATermont for a back stop, and
great things are expected of him. His name is
Harold Fletcher. He stands 6 feet I inch, ana
turns the beam at 207 pounds. He is able to
catch a cannon ball. His batting average was
.600, while his fielding record was perfect. "I
am anxious to show what I can do with the
coming champions," he said, so Directors Co
nant and Soden decided to give him a trial.
"Bennett and Ganzell won't care to catch in the
bad spring weather," said Mr. Conant, "and the
A'ermont man will help us out"
FALL OP THE MORMONS.
Gentile Ticket Carries an Important
Ogdejt, Utah, February 11. The most
important election that has ever taken place
in Utah, took place to-day. It was a
fight by Gentiles, or Liberal party
for a foothold in the Territory
by the election of a Mayor and
Council. The new Cify Hall was crowded
at all of its entrances, where the election
proceeded at four different ballot boxes. The
city voted as a whole and not bv wards, and
to accommodate all a large number of booths
for voting places were necessary. The Mor
mons, or People's party, now have the offices
of the city, and at daylight brass bands
and dram corps were promenading the
streets. AVilhithe beginning of the voting
a system of intimidation commenced on the
part of the Mormons by arresting Gentiles
before they had a chance to vote and hurry
ing them off to jail.
This was anticipated by the opposite
party, who had Marshal Dyer present and
a squad of troops 'quartered in Brown's
Hotel, across the street -The Marshal at
once stopped arrests until the voter had a
chance to tender his vote and be passed
npon by the judges. After this the elec
tion passed off quietly. The result of
to-day's election is a complete
victory for the Liberal or Gentile party.
Fred Kiesel, candidate forMayor, is elected
by a majority of 440. The balance of the
ticket, including City Council and Chief of
Police have about the same majority. The
Gentiles are jubilant over the result.

rSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCH.1
Erie, February 11. Erie is in a blaze of
glory this evening over the opening of the
Grand Army encampment. The whole city
put on its picnic attire to-dar and welcomed
the Grand Army trains with salvos and
music at the depots. There are fully 1,500
Grand Army men and ladies here to-uight,
and the number will be increased very
largely to-morrow morning. The several
councils of administration of the Grand
Army, the Women's Belief Corps and the
ladies of the Grand Army held sessions this
evening, and audited their accounts and got
things ready for to-morrow's sessions.
Strong Vincent and Scott Posts held mus
ters to-night. The Women's Belief Corps
gave a reception and campfire at which
Mrs. Dr. Beavely, of Erie, presided, she
being the President of the State Depart
ment. The hall was decorated with flags
from the United States revenue cutter
Perry. The programme to-morrow will
open with the meeting of the Northwestern
Association, which is made up of posts in
Erie, AVarren, Crawford, ATenango, Elk, Mc
Kean and other Northwestern counties.
These, with the exception of two posts,
will stand out for the election of General
D. B. McCreary, of Erie, for Department
Colonel Stewart's friends are confident
that he will be elected upon the first ballot,
and by a vote ot three to one.
SHE IS FEOM riTTSBTJEG.
Among the ladies of the Grand Army
the indications are that Mrs. Carrie V.
Sheriffs, of Pittsburg, who is now the Senior
Vice President, will be made Department
President, if she will accept it. Mrs.
Sherifls is the favorite in this section,
owing to the fact of her own popularity and
then on account of her husband's standing
in Grand Armv associations here.
Frank J. Macee, the Department Com
mander will say in his annual address:
Comrades of the Grand Army:
I welcome you to the twenty-third annual en
campment, in this beautiful Lake City, with
unbounded delight. The citizens here to-day
give evideace ot their appreciation and love of
the defenders of the Union in the late war, by
hearty good will aud cordial welcome, and we
feel assured that none will go away without
carrying with him some impression that will in
the future afford the most gratifying reminis
cences. AVe are assembled in this encampment for
the discharge of most important duties, and it
becomes every comrade to give his best
thoughts and attention to the work before him.
Great is the enjoyment that we meet annually,
hold one another's hand in friendly grasp, and
renew the fraternities formed many years ago;
but greater still w ill that en jovment be. when
we separate, and feel that we have wisely and
conscientiously discharged the duties imposed
upon us. and the results of our meeting and la
bors will inure to the future welfare of our
loved order and the continuance and further
development of the good and benefactions
promised by the cardinal principles of our or
ganized comradeship. Important questions.
which involve interests aear to every comraae,
confront us, and they are to be considered and
determined. Our conclusions, will, no doubt,
have weight and influence with legislative
bodies of the Commonwealth, and It is highly
essential that we deliberate wisely and well.
Everywhere throughout the Commonwealth
the Grand Army of the Republic meets the in
telligent and patriotic appreciation of the
people. Its steadfast fealty to duty has won
the highest commendation, and has convinced
the loyal people that our professions are not
mythical or pretentious, not a sentiment but a
sterling reality, and that the organization has
engaged in a work, none other more honorable,
none other more meritorious, and none other
more exemplifies "those noblest impulses which
only generous hearts can feet" If, therefore.
we continue to so conduct ourselves in the fu
ture as to invite the closest scrutiny, we will
not only maintain our honored position", but
richer fruition awaits us, and new and warm
friends will espouse our cause, and the Grand
Army of the Republic will continue to march
forward with conquering force to a glorious,
POSTS AXD MEMBERSHIP.
The returns for the quarter ending December
31, 1888. show a membership of 41,830, being a
net gain of of 893 during the year. The increase
in number of posts has been 11. The increase
in membership has been very gratifying, and
exhibits earnest and persistent work during'
the year. The maximum number in this De
partment has not yet been reached; there are
thousands of old soldiers and sailors in the
State who are not members of the Grand
Army, and if the present year is characterized
by the same zeal and energy as the past year,
the accession will largely overbalance the re
duction that will be made by death, removal
and suspension. I am rejoiced to say, as far as
observed, that a spirit of genuine chanty per
vades the comradeship of this department, and
"that no worthy comrade is ever suspended
when unable to pay his dues," and that "no
worthy old soldier is forced out of the Grand
Army because he is poor."
Death, the great severer of tine hearts, has
claimed as his own 561 comrades of this depart
ment since our last report .an increase of 71
over last year. An increase apparently small,
but yet a forcible reminder that as time glides
by. it will annually grow largci and larger, as
the majority of our comrades have passed the
summit and are starting down the western
slope toward the setting sun of life.
The semi-annual encampment at Gettys
burg, in July last, was a decided success. Never
before was there a larger attendance of com
rades, and the week's sojourn unon the historic
battle field was attended with much interest
and enjoyment. These gatherings, upon a soil
consecrated by the blood of thousands of our
fallen comrades, will continue to strengthen
the bonds which unite us and make us the more
appreciate the glorious work done by onr order
to perpetuate the history and memory of our
The National Encampment in Columbus,
held in September last, was attended by a full
representative delegation and many past
officials from this department, also by several
Grand Army organizations from the western
part of the State. The unity and harmony
which prevailed among the members of
tbe delegation from this department upon
all subjects considered by the encamp
ment, contributed very largely in determin
ing mnch of the work and legisla
tion before the encampment. It is pleasant in
deed for me to give such a report of your de
partment, as a number of my predecessors have
been obliged to call attention to the remissness
of delegates, who have been elected to the
National Encampments and failed to discharge
the duties incumbent upon them.
THE SOLDIERS' HOME.
Prominent in the great and glorious work of
the Grand Army of this department, is the Sol
diers and Sailors' Home, located in this city.
It is a home, indeed; and a refuge where the
deserving soldier can, in his declining years
and in his infirmity, find attention and
comfort, and enjoy the grateful bounty of
the Commonwealth under whose standard he
marched forth to fight his country's cause.
No comrade can visit this institution and ob
serve tbe pleasant and home-like accommoda
tions provided for his necessitous comrades
without feeling a pride that he belongs to an
organization Instrumental in its establish
ment. I visited the Home and thoroughly in
spected the buildings, food, etc, and I rejoice
to say that I found everything in a very satis
factory condition. The inmates appeared
happy and contented, and expressed thankful
ness for the provisions made in their behalf.
I feel assured that all the comrades connected
with the Home in an official capacity are faith
ful to the trust confided to them, and are dis
charging their respective duties with credit
Pursuant to a resolution at the Allentown
Encampment, a committee has been appointed
"to prepare a bill and urge its passage by the
next Legislature, making' an appropriation
for the erection of a monument to Major
General George C. Meade on the field
where he won one of the greatest victories of
modern times." I feel assured that every com
rade in the department would rejoice to see the
laii.iihinnrninet carried to a successful termina
tion. As Pennsylvanians, the subject should
enlist our active assistance and Influence, and
we should not be content until a suitable me
morial to his memory is erected on the historic
field "to perpetuate his honored name and
glorious achievements." If such be prepared
and presented to tho Legislature, I would urge
that comrades use their influence with the
Representatives from their respective districts
to aid lu its passage. , , ., ,.
Our organization has received valuable aid
and assistance during the year from the
AVomen's Relief Corps and the Lanies of tho G.
A. R, Theseassociations, composed of patri
otic ladies, have been active in furthering the
grand work of our .order, and have collected
and dispensed thousands of dollars in alleviat
ing the wants and sufferings ot destitute com
rades, and the families of those deceased. I
am rejoiced to say the relationship between the
Sons of Veterans and the Grand Army ot the
Republic is becoming more intimate. Many
posts of the department are giving substantial
recognition to ramni in their respective local.
ities, and I hope the practice will continue to
grow more general.
There is now before the Legislature of the
Commonwealth several bills of paramount in
terest to the soldiers of the late war, and
which await a deliverance from this Encamp
ment before final action will be taken thereon.
The most important and of the greatest inter
est to the comrades of the Grand Army is the
legislation now pending relative to the Sol
diers Orphans' Schools. By an act of Assem
bly, approved Mav 15, 1874, "all children were
u be discharged and the schools closed May
31, 1879. This law was repealed in 1878, as it
was found impossible to close the schools,
owing to the number of childreu in the schools.
An act of Assembly, approved June U, 1879,
provided "that theie shall Be no admissions
after June 1, 1882, and the schools close on
June 1, 18S5." In 1883 it was found impractica
ble to close the schools at time contemplated,
and in that year an act of Assembly, approved
June 28, 18S3, provided that "there shall be no
admissions after June 1, 1887, aud the schools
shall close June 1, 189a"
The acts of Assembly, the most important,
are cited that we may the better understand
the legislation enacted for the continuance of
these schools. In 1883, when efforts were suc
cessfully made to repeal the law and continue
the schools, it was urged that 1,770 orphans
would be without homes if the schools were
closed, the situation was appreciated and the
schools continued. To-day we are again con
fronted witn the fact that over 1,500 children
will be homeless, if the schools are closed by
existing law. I presume it will not be denied
the laws relating to the establishment of these
schools and their continuance have been en
acted through the influence and with the ap
proval of the Grand Army of the Republlc,and
that in such laws, three different times have
been appointed for thejr termination, and, fur
ther, that when these dates for closing the
schools were fixed, that they were so deter
mined upon data intelligently obtained. If
such is the case, then the Grand Army has
tacitly, if not actually, pledged its faith to the
provisions of the existing law. And yet I ap
preciate the perplexing situation in which we
find ourselves, and feel the imperative neces
sity of asking for further legislation to pro
vide and protect the 1,500 orphan children, who
will be without homes and means of support, if
the schools are closed and no provisions are
made for them. It is fearful to think of the
evil that may befall many of them; therefore,
their continued care and protection, until
able to provide for themselves, is deserving of
our best thought and consideration.
THE BANNER DEPARTMENT.
And now, comrades, the department one
year ago confided to my care and administra
tion as Commander, I return to you. 1 have
served you the best I could. It is with proud
satisfaction that 1 can say that your depart
ment to-day is stronger, if not grander, than
ever before, free from any schism or indica
tions of disintegration, the membership united,
harmonious and enthusiastic, and it maintains,
as it has doue for years past, the proud and
honorable position as the Banner Department
of the Grand Army of the Republic With a
heart welled up with gratitude for the great
honor conferred, and the fraternal kindness
and assistance received from my comrades
throughout the department, I most earnestly
return thanks, and that a merciful Providence
may spare our lives to meet again, and when
we are done meeting and parting, we may meet
to part no more, is my earnest prayer.

AT. H. Bury murdered hi wife at Dun

horrors, and the man came from that part
of London a few weeks ago. He is believed
to be suffering from a homicidal mania.

Clonmel jail. Boulanger continues to bother
the French Government
London, February 11. The fiend of
AVhitechapel, whose atrocious deeds have
caused snch a profound sensation through
out the world, is believed to have been
captured at the scene of a fresh
crime, which bears the stamp of
his fearful work. The body of a woman,
concealed in a wooden chest, was discovered
to-day by the police of Dundee. The abdo
men was ripped open and the body other
wise mutilated. The chest was so small
that the murderer had been compelled to
squeeze the body into it.
The investigation showed that the woman
had been murdered by her husband, AV. H.
Bury, and he was arrested. Bury was a
resident of AVhitechapel, London, and his
antecedents, which have been traced, suggest
that he is probably "Jack the Ripper," and
that he is subject to fits of unconscious
murder mania. The post mortem examina
tion held on the body of the Dundee victim
proved that the woman had first been
strangled, and that her body had then been
mutilated, the abdomen being ripped open
and the legs and arms twisted or broken.
Bury says that he left AVhitechapel three
weeks ago. He refuses to say why he left
there, and acknowledges that he had
no business requiring his attention
in Dundee. He says that he and
his wife drank heavily last night
before retiring, and that he does not know
how he got to bed. Upon awakening, he
says, he found his wife lying upon the floor
with a rope around her neck. Actuated by
a sudden mad impulse for which he cannot
account, he seized a knife and slashed the
Upon reason returning he became alarmed
and hastily crushed the body into the chest
in which it was found, thinking to fly and
make his escape. He found, however, that
he could not leave his wife's remains,
and he finally resolved to inform the
police. The theory of the noiice officials is
that Bury's wife knew of the facts connect
ing him with the East End atrocities, and
that she took him to Dundee in the hope of
preventing a recurrence of the crimes.
THE SUIT IN IRELAND.
Pnrnell and tbe Times Differ in Their Views
London, February 13. Mr. Parnell, in
his affidavit, declares that his action,
if brought in Ireland, will be
speedier, more convenient and
less expensive than in England,
the most necessary witnesses residing in
Ireland, many of whom could not attend
the trial elsewhere except at great inconve
nience and expense.
The Times leader this morning ridicules
these reasons, seeing that the commis

land, was more expensive'and inconvenient
for witnesses, than it wonld be even in Lon

were presented to Mrs. Chamberlain on be
half of the AVomen's Unionist Associations
of Scotland. Mr. Chamberlain thanked the
gathering for the honor paid to himself and
his wife. After some remarks npon the re

said there never was a time when it was
possible1 to recognize anything in the shape
of separate nationalities in America. An
attempt to set up such a scheme was resisted
at a cost of hundreds of thousands of lives
and hundreds ot millions of dollars.
"If we should follow the American-system,"
he said, "we would have to cut up the
United Kingdom into twenty or thirty bits,
and award a Parliament to each. This, per

tainly would not be economical."

Atlanta, February 11. Mr. O. Helms
was this evening placed in the Dougherty
county jail. He had been brought there
from the Early county jail because of the
threatened gathering of outraged citi
zens last night, who had resolved to
lynch him for his betrayal of Miss Curr,
of that place. Four years ago Miss Curr
who is an orphan girl, wrote for the corre
spondence column of a society paper. In
this way her name came to the attention of
Mr. JNelms, a handsome young farmer of
Calhoun county, in the northern part of the
State, and the husband of one wife. He
wrote to the girl, won her consent, and went
down and married her. The news that be

and he skipped out, leaving a disconsolate
He was heard of no more until about a
month ago, when he was caught near Bir

three more wives in Alabama and Tennessee.
One of these wives he had married under
the assumed name of Henry AY. GraJy.

brother, who says that Nelms is crazy on the
subject of marriage, and that he cannot re

he meets who is willing to have him.

A Union County Jades Who Has ts Act the
Part or Solomon.
Lewisbttbg, February 11. On Monday
last the people of Lewisb'urg were surprised
by the sight of a closed carriage being
rapidly driven through the main streets fol
lowed by a number of men on horseback, but
when the whole caravan stopped before the
law office of Hon. C. S. AVolf the mystery
was soon solved. Some time during the
week before AVesley B. Stark, of AVilliams
port, had taken his two children from his
home and brought them to his mother's,
Mrs. E. A. Stark, of this place,because as he
said, his wife was not taking proper care of
them. On Monday Mrs. AVesley Stark and
her sister came to" Lewisburg in a closed
carria'ge and taking the childreu started for
Williamsport, but were overtaseu near
Milton, in Northumberland county, aud
brought back without a warrant
Mrs. Stark seenred Mr. AVolfe as her
counsel and the matter was brought before
Judge Bucher to be decided. He deferred
it until evening. As Messrs. AVolfe and
Leiser and the two ladies with the children
were returning from the Court House they
were met by Stark and his brother and
AVilliam Ginter, a relative of Stark's, who
tried to take the children from them by
force. Mr. AVolfe interfered and in the
struggle Mr. Leiser struck Ginter on the
head with a law book, not, however, doing
him any injury.
In the evening Judge Bncher, being
nnable to decide on account of insufficient
testimony as to who should have the chil-
r dren, was about to give them to Mr. Stark s
mother when the children, both of whom are
quite young, began to cry for their mother.
This aroused such a storm of indignation in
the court that it was impossible to keep
order, so he gave them to their mother on
J300 bail to appear in court next AVednes
day, when the case will be finally decided.
SEAMEN O.N A STRIKE.
The Tronble in England Is Spreading to
Boston', February 11. The strike among
seamen and firemen of ocean steamers now
going on in England has begun to be felt
here. The steamer Virginian, Captain
Fox, of the Leyland line, loading at
the Hoosac tunnel docks for Liverpool,
was visited by several men to-day who at
tempted to prevail upon the men to leave
the vessel. They claimed to represent the
strikers on the other side of the water, and
on being ordered to leave the ship turned
upon the Captain and strnck him several
blows in the lace. Two of the firemen on
board the vessel were badly beaten.
The Captain says seven of his men have
left on account of threats made by these
men. The Virginian, as well as the steam
ship Milanese, which is at the next dock,
has oh board police officers to protect the
officers and men from farther assault.
