Belfast, March 25. (Copyright)
The day opened cold and raining. In the
forenoon a number of invitations were ex
tended to the American baseball players to
visit the large shipyards and linen manu
factories, bnt the inclement weather kept
them in doors. Shortly after noon the
weather cleared and the sun shone more
brightly than at any time since leaving
Paris, when they left for the grounds of the
2f orth of Ireland Cricket Club. The ground
was in good condition. The American nag
floated abore the. clubhouse, and some of the
more patriotic members of the party doffed
their hats. Between 3,000 and 4,000 people wit
nessed the game.
IMPORTANT PEOPLE PRESENT.
Among those present wer C. C. Connor,
Mayor of Belfast, Sir E. P. Cowan, Lord Lien
tenant of the County of Antrim. During the
second innings the cold, cutting rain began to
fall, and continued until the game was halt
over. The ball became soft and slippery, and
caused most of the errors to be made. Outside
of this the game was splendidly contested, first
one then the other club having the lead. The
Chicago:, however, were extremely lucky in
getting their runs in the early part of the
game, the first one being scored on a passed
ball which rolled among the spectators and
allowed Burns to come home from first base.
In the fourth innings when ths bases were full,
three runs were scored in the same way on a
In the All-Americas' last inning, Eaile
brought in the two winning runs with a three
base hit. The Chicagos were then whitewashed,
two men striking out. Healy and Tener were
the pitchers. The batting on both sides was
quite heavy. Burns and Earle taking the lead
with a three-bagzer and
THREE SISGLES EACH.
Brown bad four singles. Fogarty made a
couple of notable fly catches, and the three
Chicago outfielders also captured difficultballs.
The spectators were extremely cold and unap
preciative at the start, bat warmed up toward
the close, and applauded heartily the Drilliant
fielding. They were not at all enthusiastic over
the game, and did not seem sensible of the
close and exciting nature of the contest as the
people m England were. This is the score of
the game by innings:
All-Americas. 1010010 V-9
Chicagos 0 124100008
Base hits -All Americas, 17; Chicagos, 13.
Errors All -Americas. 4; Chicagos, 5.
In the evening the teams were dined by the
North of Ireland Cricket Club in the pavilion
on the grounds. The Mayor of Belfast pre
sided. Toasts were drnnk to the Queen, the
President and the ball players, amid much en
thusiasm. There were no set speeches, and
the evening was spent in singing and social
chat. The clubs were also invited to attend
the Theater Royal, and Ginnet's Circus, bnt
only a few attended. The travelers leave at
7 o'clock to-morrow for Dublin, where they
play tin Wednesday. This will be the last
game of the tour. Manager Leigh Lynch says
it would take a week to accept all the tenders
"of courtesies he has received.
THE LOCAL CRICKETERS.
Local Players May Go to Canada A Field
The local cricketers are all right as far as in
tentions for the approaching season are con
cerned. The Pittsburg clnb, or at least an
eleven of that organization, will play a team of
the Hazelwood and the Sonthslde clubs on
Saturday next. The make-up of the teams has
not been decided upon yet. However, the two

The Pittsburg clnb has decided that its an
nual field day shall take place on the last Sat
urday of June. There will be foot races as fol

it is understood that there are now no local
amateurs who care about running a mile.

oCthe club, says that the club mav go to Cana

settled until Mr. Swartz returns. However, it
is cheaper for the club to go to Canada than to
go East. If Shaw brings an eleven from En
gland they will play here. The local club has
decided on this point.
THE RULES WERE READ.
Manager TliIIIlps Meet the Boys and
Makes an Impression.
Manager Phillips met all the players of the
local team at Recreation Park yesterday ex
cept Sunlap, Coleman, and the others whose
absence has already been accounted for. The
rules of the club were read to the boys, and
the manager elucidated their provisions in bis
impressive wav. At any rate, the players were
led to heheve that nothing but the most
puritanical mode of life will be tolerated bythe
League or Uie Pittsburg club officials.
However, it seems that all the players, or at
least the bulk ot them, who are scheduled to
play for the Pittsburg team, have, during the
winter recess, devoted niariv hours to the study
of Jeremy Taylor's "Holy Living.' It appears
that some good intentioned member of the W.
C. T. U. has had every player of the local team
in view daring the interval between now and
last October. At any rate, the world, or that
part of it known as Western Pennsylvania,
need not be surprised if the Pittsburg club
directors make a fortune next fall by sending
about a dozen evangelists on the road.

MORE ABOUT WARD.
Johnny May Stay With New York Because
(SPECIAL TELIQKAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
New York, March 25. The Ward case, not
withstanding the great amount of talk, can be
summed up in a few words. He will not go to
Boston, be may go to Washington, but if the
New York Club will pay him the amount of
salary he asks he will stay right in this city.
President Day will not let him go to Boston,
and he will not be sold unless lie gets some of
the purchase money, and this Presjdent Day
will not give him. The natural consequence is,
therefore, that he will stay here. Ward has a
reputation in this city, but if he went to any
other club he would, in a measure, have to
begin all over again. Ward's friends now as
sert that he will stay here, Although there may
be a possible chance of his going to Washing
ton. What Ward wants is enough moner, and
if he gets it he will no doubt be satisfied to re
In answer to a question by The Dispatch
reporter to-day Ward said: "I would like to
stay here, and it is only a question of money.
I understand that Mr. Day has written from
the South that he mould like to have me stay,
and I will if I get the required salary. If I
should leave here I would like to go to Boston,
but I can't go there, and I don't care much
about Washington. I will do nothing until
Mr. Day gets back."
Al Stuart, of last year's Troy club, has
brought suit against President Hewitt, of the
Washington club, for salary due him for play
ing with the Troy club. The papers were
served upon Mr. Hewitt this morning by a
deputy Sheriff who had been looking for him
several days. Mr. Hewitt claims that he had
nothing to do with the Troy club and never
bad. The letters and telegrams in the hands
of Mr. Stuart would indicate that this was not
so, and, although Ted Sullivan was the leading
feature in the club, Mr. Hewitt was behind
him. When the Troy club became hard pushed
financially last season Mr. Stuart wrote to the
President of the Washington club, asking for
money. He got it all right and still has the
letter in which the check was inclosed. Some
time after this Mr. Stuart again wrote Mr.
Hewitt for mone, but this time he did not
get it. Mr. Hewitt sent back word that he
never bad any interest in the Troy club and did
not want the players to bother him. It was un
derstood that an order of arrest had been is
sued for Mr. Hewitt, but this, it is said, could
not be served.
It is not quite plain how Mr. Stuart can get
anything if Mr. Hewitt refuses to pay. His
share of the gate receipts at the Polo Grounds
could probably be attached, that is it they can
be distinguished from the great amount taken
in there. The uniforms cannot be attached,
for they belong to the plajers.
A dispatch from Washington says that the
Post to-morrow will say: 'John Montgomery
Ward will play in Washington next season.
The question has been settled beyond all dis
pute, and only requires Ward's signature to a
contract to complete it. This will be given
within a few days. Ward has accented the
terms offered by the Washington Club, has
gone into the minor details of the manage
ment of the team for the coming season, speci
fying the the players he would like to obtain
and the hotels at which he desires the men to
stop while traveling, and his name would be at
the bottom of a Washington contract to-day if
it were not that he desire to hear from Presi
dent Day, of the New York Club, on one point
which he knows is practically settled."
PETER GOLDEN ARRIVES.
The Famous Pedestrian Comes Here to
Train for (he Big Race.
Peter Golden, the pedestrian, arrived in the
city last evenmg. He was looking in first-class
condition and expects to be a winner in the
approaching 6-day contest that takes place at
the Central Rink.
Golden has taken part in many races since he
won the last sensational contest here. He still
thinks he can beat Noremac and therefore
thinks he can win the big race. He has come
here in advance to train, so as to beat Nore
mac. On this point he said last night:
"Noremac was mad here becanse I beat him.
He tried to win, and so did I. I never refused
to speak to him alter I won. Hew onldn't speak
to me. I think I can beat George, and Fm going
to try, and the result will settle all the talk he
has had about me. I dare bet Noremac onr
share of the money that I'll beat him; that is,
if he beats me he can get all I win providing I
earn money and vice versa. I am keeping in
line because I know there will be some valu
able prizes in the race, and I have come on
here to get into condition."
Golden never looked better in his life. He
means to win, and he has friends here to back
him against Noremac Certainly there will be
a race between these two men, and Peter land
ed in town yesterday sporting the green sprig
which he calls the emblem of victory.
ST. JOHN REPLIES.
He Odcrs to Match Gnadanr Against Tecm
er on Conditions.
Boston, March 25. Last Saturday John
Teemer. the oarsman, issned a challenge in
The Pittsburg Dispatch offering to row a
series of races, three, four and five miles,
against any oarsman in the world, Gaudaur
preferred, for $500 a side, each race. This after
noon J. A. St. John, backer of Gandaur, tele
graphed Teemer as follows: .
"On behalf of Gaudaur I accept your chal
lenge, provided you make the distance two,
three and four miles, we to name the first
course, you the second and toss for choice of
third. If satisfactorv meet me at the office of
Cincinnati Enquirer Friday. 29th inst."
A McKeesport dispatch says Teemer is very
anxious that Mr. St. John stop at Pittsburg on
his way to St. Louis and meet him at the office
of The Dispatch, when they could select a
stakeholder and arrange all preliminaries, as
this would enable him to avoid the expense of
a trip to Cincinnati, and he hopes that,"St. John
will stop there: should be not do so he will have
to make the trip. As soon as the arrangements
are made he will at once go into training at
home, and says that there is a possibility of his
selecting Pittsburg as the course for one of the
races. He spoke of McKeesport, bnt ap
pears to be in favor of Pittsburg, and it is sate
to say that he will have one of the races rowed
Teemer issued the challenge through this
fiaper, and it has not been squarely accepted,
t, therefore, seems reasonable that anybody
who wants to discuss its merits ought rather to
come to Teemer and talk than to ask him to
leave home or his locality. Teemer's challenge
was made in good faith, and any man who does
not entirely accept it cannot reasonably expect
Teemer to travel throughout the country to
discuss modifications. This rule has been long
recognized. Of course Teemer will be willing
to go anywhere to make a match, but legiti
mately his challenge keeps him at home.

The Pamell case was again debated in
the House of Commons yesterday. Sir
Charles Russell emphatically corrected some
recent statements made by Attorney General
Webster. The latter was forced to acknowl
edge that his memory had misled him. Har
conrt, Labouchere and others also attacked
the Times' counsel.
LONDON, March 25. In the House of
Commons this afternoon Sir Charles Bus
sell, who, upon rising, was loudly cheered,
said he desired to make a statement regard
ing the speech made by Attorney General
Webster in the Honse on'EYiday last. He
read a letter which he had written to Mr.
Webster, in which he said that he did not
believe that Mr. Webster had been correctly
It was absolutely incorrect to say that be
fore Pigott's examination, or before Pigott
fled, he (Bussell) had received information,
direct or indirect, to the effect that Pigott
discredited the value of his own testimony.
It was absolutely incorrect to say that he
had either called for or referred to letters
conveying such information.
WEBSTER CALLED DOTVX.
Attorney General Webster, in reply to
the speaker's letter, had written that he be
lieved he had handed such letters to him,
but that he would have to refer to his short
hand notes for confirmation. The Attorney
General was mistaken in supposing that he
had given him five days before Pigott tes
tified, letters discrediting Pigott's evi
dence. The letters in which Pigott confessed his
fear of a cross-examination had come upon
the Speaker and his colleagues as a com
plete surprise. After Pigott's flight they
had repeatedly made open complaint in
Court regarding the manner in which the
Attorney General had conducted the case.
He did not impute dishonorable motives
to the Attorney , General, but he thought
that Mr. Webster had been led away by the
political character of the case into a course
of conduct which, on reflection and in less
exciting circumstances, he would not have
A DIRECT CONTRADICTIONS
Continuing, Sir Charles Bussell Raid that
even when Pigott had testified, he did not
get the letters to which reference had been
made, although Mr. Webster offered to pro
duce the letter of November 5. He asked
the Attorney General either to admit that
he was mistaken or "to point out in the
official report any reference to the letter of
Mr. Webster admitted that, relying
upon memory, he had erred when he wrote
to Sir Charles Bussel. He argued that in
any case the matter was unimportant. The
Attorney General persisted that if Sir
Charles Bussell had consented to have the
letter from Mr. Soames to Pigott read in
court, he (Bussell) would have been in a
position to demand, the correspondence to
which it referred.
Mr. Aisquith, who is one of the Parnell
ite counsel, followed. He asserted most
gisitively that neither he nor Sir Charles
ussell had the ghost or glimmering of a
notion mat a letter o: Pigott's existed in
which he announced that his testimony
would be discredited.
Sir William Vernon Haroourt contended
that no answer had been given to his charge .
that Mr. Webster, knowing Pigott to be a
doubtfnl witness, had allowed the Times for
two months to repeat its odious charges,
and, further had sat silent while Houston
affirmed that he had complete trust in Pigott,
-which statement Mr. Webster knew to be
Mr. Webster I have protested that I had
no means of knowing that Houston's state
ment was untrue.
Sir William Harcourt. resuming, said
that an attorney might weave the cobwebs
of miserable professional etiquette about the
matter, but the common sense of the nation
wonld revolt against the keeping alive to
the last moment of charges known to be
false as an act of professional cruelty and
injustice. Sir Edward Clark, Solicitor Gen
eral, spoke in defense of Mr. Webster.
Mr. Labouchere said that Mr. Houston,
Mr. Soames and Mr. Webster had all avoided
asking questions concerning Pigott. Mr.
Morley said he had not a word to withdraw
from what he had said in Friday's debate.

Philadelphia Politicians Feeling Badly Over
the Tender of tbe Postofllce to n
Business Sinn They Wonted a
Worker to Havo. It.
(SPECIAL TELEQHAM TO TUB DISPATCH.:
Philadelphia, March 26V There i
much agitation in political circles to-day
over tbe action of Postmaster General
Wanamaker in offering John Field
the Philadelphia postmastership, and
Senator Quay's recommendation of William
B. Leeds for the place. Mr. Field said that
he had written abetter to Postmaster Gen
eral Wanamaker, agreeing to accept under
certain contingencies. He was asked if op
position to his appointment from the city
politicians would have any influence in
causing him to reconsider his acceptance.
He said that it would only make him more
determined to accept.
At the Mayor's office many business men
called who were opposed to Mr. Field's ap
pointment on the ground that he had not
always been a Bepublican. John Lawson,
of the Union Leagne, seemed to voice their
sentiment when he said:
"I have always been a party man myself,
and am one of those who believe that we
can find just as good business men to fill
the Government offices within the party as
can be found outside. Mr. Field is a good
business man and is perhaps among the
best of the members of the old Committee of
Mayor Fitler made no concealment of his
opposition to Mr. Field. He said: "I am
decidedly opposed to the appointment of
John Field to the Postmastership, and have
sent my protest against his appointment to
Late in the afternoon an interview with
Postmaster Harrity appeared in an after
noon paper, in which he spoke of his pleas
ant relations with Mr. Field, socially and
otherwise, and said that "we," meaning the
Democratic party of the city, "thought ot
running him for mayor against Mr. Fitler
at the time Mr. Wanamaker's name was
mentioned." This interview, when it was
read "by stalwart Republicans, only
aggravated their feelings. It was
especially displeasing to the friends of
Mayor Fitler, and taken in connection with
the theory that the Democrats are trying to
hold their positions in the postoffice by
"worshipping the rising sun," had the 'effect
of stirring the old Bepublican employes up
to a high pitch of indignation.
A CHINAMAN CHARGES
One of His Countrymen With Boldly Rob
About 1:30 this morning Quong Hi Loi, a
Chinese laundryman at 710 Duquesne way,
notified the police that he had been robbed
by one of his countrymen of $23 25. Mr.
Mr. Loi's story was that he had attended a
feast-on Second avenue during the evening,
and when he returned home found Go Lip,
accompanied by a big black dog, in his
Go Lip fled through the back door, after
threatening to kill Loi, who then discov
ered tnat the intruder had enected an en
trance by breaking in the back door with
an iron bar. He described Go Lip, and
officers Holmes and Eagen: soun afterward
arrested him in a Grant street joint. Only
14 of the money was found on Go Lip,
who was drunk, and said he had spent the
balance. Loi says that Go Lip has' been
here 17 months, but has done no work
making a living by robbing other China
men. After the prisoner was safely locked np,
an excited Chinaman rushed into the
station and offered the sergeant half
a dozen cigars, which he insisted
should be given the prisoner. This
was refused, and the cigars are
kept for analysis, as the prosecuting China
man repeated over and over again, when
the man was arrested: "Don't let them see
him. They kill him. Burn what they
want to give him."

of which has a window in the
exterior wall. The plans are drawn for a

of a lofty tower with al most countless loop

The government has come to the conclusion
to keep up the modus Vivendi for another

timation as to wh it wonld be the course of

contained nothing unfriendly and -did
not intimate any renewal of the threatened re

leaving the way open lor the resumption of

part of the United States.

Light Diet of Water.
Strolling down Sixth avenue the other
daya Dispatch reporter noticed a small
tin sign on a somewhat weather-beaten
house, stating that cupping and leeching
were done inside. On knocking at the door,
a good-natured old German woman- of per
haps 70 summers and winters, too ap
peared, and inquired if the reporter wanted
to be leeched or cupped."
The primitive, if not only, leech the scrib
bler had actual acquaintance with was an
ash barrel, which ran off different
grades of lye until an egg would
-float,- and the, whole household could
be soft-soaped with the product.
With such thoughts as these and a vague
picture of black-eyed and bloated fighters
strolling in to get their beauty-SDOts
bleached out, and fair-haired maidens
waiting to get the black-and-blue spots
taken from their foreheads, where they had
fallen down stairs and bumped too hard,the
reporter entered the room.
indications after all.
It looked decidedly like a grandma's room,
with no indications of business at first
glance. Along the side of the wall, how
ever, on a shelf, was soon noticed tbe stock-in-trade
cans of worms, wriggling and
stretching themselves, as ready for business
as a Fourth avenue oil broker. Beside
these were cups of all sizes, from the
smallest kind ot a wine glass up to a good
sized drinking tumbler.
The old lady still persisted in leeching
the reporter, or at least selling him a half a
dozen of the worms at a quarter apiece.
She even offered her whole stock, 140 odd,
for 510, stating that she was going ont of
"Just.tell me all about the business; I'd
rather y'on do that," suggested the reporter.
"Where do you first get your leeches? Do
you plant them?"
"I get them from Sweden. Why do you
ask, young ma'u? You've got no black eye.
If you had, though, I would leech
it for 50 cents. That's the way I
have made my living for 40 years.
But, since the new doctors have sprnng
up, they don't know anything, and so they
send me no custom. Before, the doctors
used to send me people to be leeched or
cupped for rheumatism, pleurisy, inflam
mations of all kinds, and different diseases.
Young man. you ought to let me leech you
only 50 cents.
"How do I do it? I don't leech much
any more; bnsiness is no good and I am
going to quit in April; I am too old.
THE OTHEK PLAN.
"Well, if you want to be dry cupped,
then, I can burn alcohol in the cup, or a
piece of paper, and put it on the
place you want or need it. This
exhausts the afr and draws the skin up. If
you want to draw blood, I use the scarifier,
an instrument with from 6 to 16 blades,
which works with a spring, and outs just so
deep, when applied before using the cup.
Sometimes I draw five or six ounces of

I strip this from them and put them on

As the reporter noticed this old apostle of
a once popular practice moving toward the
wriggling leeches he made his exit with a
shiver, and that night dreamed he had the
delirium tremens the day before, and, in
his sleep, swore he never would become a
subject of leeching Again.

Strong Circumstantial Evidence Against a

Onancock, Va., March 25. Mrs. Vir
ginia Taylor, a young white woman of pre
possessing appearance, respectable parent
age and hitherto good social standing,
is on trial in the county court of Accomack,
charged with killing her husband by giving
him strychnine. William Taylor was an
hqnest and prosperous young farmer, who
livedinear Modest town, a seaside village in
the northern part of Accomack. He had
a wife and H one child. For sev
eral years he has had a young
man named James Dix living with him,
and assisting him in working the farm.
Taylor and his wife had not lived very
happily together, and it is said that she was
fonder of young Dix than she -was of her
Late last fall Taylor went on a fishing
excursion down Gargatha Bay. On his re
turn home he found that his wife and Dix
were absent, and they did not return until
late that night. The next day Taylor, who
had never before been ill in his life, was
attacked with such violent convulsions that
it required four or five strong young men to
hold him on the bed. There were three at
tacks, the last one proving fatal.
A week after Taylor'sjburial suspicion of
foul play was aroused, and his body was
exhumed. Strychnine was found in the
stomach, and it was also proved that Mrs.
Taylor had boughf strychnine the day Tay
lor became ill. She was accordingly ar

rSrKCIAL TELEGRAM TO Till DISPATCH.
Indianapolis, March 25. Several days
ago -a woman at the female reformatory
known as Henrietta was ordered to the
dungeon on account of insubordination. As
she was taken to the cell six other prisoners
appeared before the superintendent and de
clared that if she were sent to "Japan," as
the dungeon is called, they would go also.
They were accommodated and all
placed in cells. Yesterday one of
the attendants twent into Henrietta's
cell for some purpose, and the prisoner
escaped and ran upstairs. There she se
cured several flat-irons and some knives and
fork?, and returning broke the locks from
the cell doors where the others were con
fined and distributed the knives among
The superintendent hurriedly summoned
the engineer and the janitor, and the re
fractory prisoners were shut in the outer
room of the cells, and the other prisoners
taken to their respective rooms.
A demand was then made for
the surrender of the irons and
knives, but the women refused and declared
they would brain the first person who en
tered to take them. The hose Was brought
to the barred door and the- nozzle stuck
through and the refractory women were or
dered to surrenderor take adrenching. They
refused, but at the first indication that the
hose would be used they handed out the
irons and other weapons, and the mutiny
was over. Each was then returned to her
cell, and will be kept there on bread and
water for several days.
WARNING PROM HEAVEN.
A Star Appears In tbe Daytime, ForetelllDS
n Mining Disaster.
Babnesville, O., jMarch 25 A strange
tale is told by men employed at Fanner
Brothers' mines, near this plce. Two of
the miners say that, a few days ago, they
were out in the main entry of the mine en
gaged in conversation about their work,
when a bright ball of fire, in the
shape of a star, suddenly appeared before
them. In a moment the star became
intensely brilliant and fairly dazzled their
eyes. Now it swayed back and forth, up
and down, with great rapidity. Watching
it for a time, one of the men started toward
it with a view of investigation. As he ap
proached the thing would move off. When,
he stopped it stopped. He followed it to the
mouth of the entry, when it went out in the
davlight and disappeared.
' The men reported what they had seen to
some of their companions, who ridiculed the
idea and discredited their story. Among
these was William Loeffler, the mine boss.
The following day, however, Loeffler
changed his tune. Just as he was entering,
the mine the fiery star appeared right in
front of him. At one time it seemed that it
would hit him 'square in the face, and he
raised his hand to strike it,but it darted eff.
He followed it to the end of the entry a
distance of 200 or 300 yards where it van
ished for a moment, only to appear again in
his rear. Sometimes it would hang in space,
then dart to one side and then the other,
now lingering for a moment on the edge of
a projecting piece of slate, always moving
off when an attempt was made to approach
it. At different times the strange celestial
visitor has been seen by others.
The climax came last week, however. On
Friday evening the few men who had not
been frightened from the mine had finished
their day's work, and were on their way
homeward. Loeffler remained behind to
look after matters. Jnst as he was leaving
the mine a hundred feet or more of
the entry caved in, and Loeffier was parti
ally buried. He saved his life by crawling
through an aperture none too soon, how
ever, as a second slip of the hill completely
closed it up. He escaped with a few severe
brnises. The fall of the entry completely
wrecked the mine, and operations are for
ever abandoned at that point
MURDERING A HOODOO DOCTOR.
The Crime of a Negro Pardoned by the
GoTcrnor of Georgia.
Atlanta, March 25. An executive or
der issued to the principal keeper of the
penitentiary by Governor Gordon recalls a
crime of extraordinary barbarity committed
in the wilds of Northwestern Georgia 14
years ago. Prior to that time,
in Cherokee county, there lived an
eccentric negro, known by the name
of Harrison Harshaw. The negroes in the
community came to regard him as a witch
and a "hoodoo," and had a most intense
dread of him. This went on for a time until
the negroes were afraid to have him
remain in the neighborhood and they de
termined to get rid of him. This meant
murder. One day a-party of five negroes,
one of them a boy 14 years, induced Har
shaw to go on excursion across the Georgia
line into Fannin, and when they had him in
a -thick woods they fell upon him with
knives, rocks and clubs and killed him.
They were all convicted of mnrder and
sentenced to life imprisonment in the peni
tentiary. Onlv two of the five. Yonne' and
Johnson, survive. Young is at the Ogle
thorpe Camp and Johnson is at Cave City.
When Governor Gordon came into office he
found in the Executive Department an ap
plication lor a pardon lor these two,
or a commutation of the sentence.
The application was especially urgent
in behalf of Johnson, who was only
14 years old when the crime was committed,
and was clearly led into it by the older ne
groes. He has already served 14 years.
The sentiment in Cherokee county, North
Carolina, is strong in favor of a pardon for
both, and the feeling abont it is the same in
Fannin county. The Governor decided to
order the release of Johnson, on the ground
that, considering his age when convicted,
he has been sufficiently punished. The
caseof Terrell Young is still under consid
eration, but, as he is now an old. man, it is
likely he will receive executive clemency.
A BIG OHIO GAS WELL.
The Old Man Himself Breaks Loose and the
Natural Fnel Escapes.
Lancaster, March 25. Last evening
"The Old Man Himself" gas well was re
leased and lighted for exhibition to two
directors of the Central Glass company of
Wheeling and other visiting manufacturers,
and as if resenting further restraint after
the temporary liberty, the monster this
morning blew away the clamps by which
the flow was shnt off and fairly frightened
the peaceful city.
An unsatisfactory measurement was made
of the escaping fluid,, but was of sufficient
accuracy to determine the enormous in
crease in volume of at least 6,000,000 feet,
making the output of the already famous
welt oyer 19,000,000 feet. Great curiosity
is felt as to what the product of this well
might have been if drilling, which was
stopped through the fear of inability to
control its power, had been continued clear
through-the gas-bearing rock.
The Chicago Authorities Claim to be an tbe
Chicago, March 25. Twenty-five head of
lumpy-jawed cattle were killed at tbe stock
yards this morning. They were consigned to
different firms, and did not come from any
particular section of the country. Every Sat
urday Or. Caswell, State Veterinarian, visits
the yards and examines the suspected cattle
which have arrived during the week. Those
found tainted with lumpy jaw are condemned
and slaughtered the following Monday The
number killed to-day is unusually large and
gave rise to some comment.
Dr. Caswell and tbe other authorities, bow
ever, do not attach any especial importance to
the increased proportion of disease of cattle.
They say this week's receipts may show a de
cided falling oil from the average number, tbe
unusual number of diseased bovines arriving
last week being merely a coincidence, which
does not indicate that the much-dreaded dis
ease is spreading.
SNATCHED FROM THE CAB.
A Remarkable Accident Causing tbe Death
of a Railroad Fireman.
(SPECIAL TELEdKAH TO THE DISPATCII.l
Maktinsbukg, March 25. One of the
most remarkable, accidents ever known in
this vicinity occurred at the Little Cacapon
bridge yesterday. A passenger train was
running East, and just as the engine, run
off the bridge the engineer turned to
speak to "William Albright, bis fireman. He
fonnd him not in the cab, and supposing he
had fallen off, the train was stopped and the
men went back to search for him.
On reaching the bridge they found Albright
suspended by his neck in the crotch between
two iron rods, quite dead. The supposition is
that he was leaning far out ot the tab, looking
back, when his bead caught between the rods
and drew him out of the engine..
