Bvnx.xx, July 20. The long pending ne
gotiations with the Porte, aiming at the ad
hesion of Turkey to the Triple Alliance,
have finally resulted in an entente, under
which the Drcibund guar antces to maintain
the integrity of Tuikisdi territory in accord

Bismarck promising to influence Greece not
to interfere provided further autonomy is

Turkih troops shall co-operate with
Austria in Servia and Bulgaria in the
event ol a war ith Ku sia.

The Wa r Minister reported the arming of
the Servi. jri reserves en masse, and the dis
tribution of 350,000 rifles and abundant
ruunitio jj furnished by Russia and Prance,
the;- d Siting the Servian treasury under
easy eruditions of deferred payments.
Russi An officers, he said, were engaged in
insr jetins fortresses, barracks and depots in
Scr ia. The Minister advocated immediate
act ion. Everything was ready to march
t o army corps into Servia.
The council decided to wait until Count
'vilnoky influenced the reappearance of
.King Milan in Belgrade. The partisans of
ICing Milan are eager for a civil war to
crush the Russians. If it occurs King
Milan will invoke Austrian assistance, and
thus give Kalnoky ground to interfere.
The Kruccse Zefui!j7,referring to the argu
ment with the Porte as to adhesion to the
Triple Alliance, says: "The Sultan must
above all be fully convinced that the league
"will not violate the integrity TTurkev, but
recognize her as a State entirely indepen

The Father Lloyd doubts the value of
Turkey's adhesion, but predicts that when
the decisive hour strikes, the Porte finding
the question of its very existence involved,
will co-operate with the powers desiring to
A LITTLE DIPLOMACY.
The interview at the Foreign Office be
tween Count Herbert Bismarck and M.
ZRoth, the Swiss Minister, was amiable.
Count Herbert intimated that the German
reply to the Swiss note, though denouncing
the existing treaty settlement, would invite
early negotiations fo a new treatv. The
tenor of the reply woubd be so friendly that
Count Herbert was coniident that the Swiss
Government would consider the hostile
ylase ot the dispute closed. Beferring to
aliged frontier reprii.als. Count Herbert
explained that the measures were noi Liken
in a spirit of rancor, but purely as a pre
ventive against the entry of Socialist docu
ments into Germany. The zeal oi the
officials had misapplied their instructions.
If the measures hampered the business of
the Communes they would be corrected.
CM. Roth sent a note of the interview to
Berne, which seems to have incited a
stricter surveillance of refugees. The Sec
retary of Justice and Police went to Zurich
Thursday and submitted a number ot Ger
man Socialists to interrogation and ob
tained pledges that while residents of
Switzerland they M-ould renounce all prop
aganda compromising the country. The
same pledge will be demanded of every
refugee sheltered in Switzerland.

Memphis, July 20. Some time ago
Colonel H. Clay King filed a bill in the
Chancery Court against Mrs. Mary E. Pil
low, widow or the well-known Confederate
General, in which he alleged that Mrs.
Pillow had exercised an undue influence
over him, and had induced him to deed a
large amount of his property to her, but
that he did so with the expressed under
standing between them that she would not
present the deeds for registration until after
his death, which obligation and agreement
she had violated. The object of his bill
was to get a decree vesting the title to
the property again in himself. "Within the
past week that lady has brought a damage
suit agiinst him in the Circuit Court lor
8100,000. Supplemented to this she filed,
through "her attorneys, in the Chancery
Court this morning her answer and cross
bill to the bill filed hy Colonel King. The
bill is a very sensational one, and contains
wholesale denials of all of Colonel King's
allegations and severe strictures upon him.
Among other things, she charges that com
plainant, upon a hollow pretense, had in
duced her housemaid, during her absence,
to get him the deeds in question, and that
once in his possession he threw them in the
tire, where they were consumed, and that
"every allegation of his bill putting any
other construction upon this transaction is
an ingenious falsehood."
The bill further says: "Notwithstanding
the complainant wishes to destroy the re
spondent's reputation, he has repeatedly in
conversation with bis friends in Memphis
solemnly declared her purity. In the first
years of their business connection he told
her Tie wished to get a divorce from his wife
in order to marry her. Respondent dis
suaded him. Afterward he drew li n a hill
of divorce and sent it to Judge R. J. Mor
gan, of this city, to be filed, and sent a conv
to defendant's son-in-law, J. S. Shield, of
jjirmingnam. ctiiielU'at once replied that
the disgrace attached to his actions could
only be wiped out with blood, and asked for
a meeting at Memphis to -arrange hostili
ties. Respondent came to Memphis and in
duced Judge Morgan to suppress the bill.
The complainant demanded that respondent
marry him, saying he was a ruined man if
she did not Complainant has always
averred that respondent was a chaste woman
and acknowledged an obligation to marrv
her on the death of Mrs. King or on the se
curing of absolute divorce."

Henry Schoor, a resident of River ave
nue, Millvale borough, was probably fatally
shot by Charles Hildehoff, a neighbor,
about 11 o'clock last night The two men
met at the Willow Grove brewery at Mill
vale last night, Schoor. it is alleged, being
visibly under the influence of liquor. He
bantered Hildehoff to fight, it is said, and
annoyed him in many ways, but the latter
refused to have anything to do with him.
Hildehoff nurchased a keg of beer, which
he had gone after, and started home with it.
The particulars of what followed, as now al
leged, are, that Schoor followed him
and kept up his quarrelsome manner all the
way to his home, a distance of about a quar
ter of a mile; that on the way there Schoor
accused Hildehoff of calling the former's
wife ugly names, which Hildehoff denied,
when Schoor struck him in the face; that,
on reaching home1 Hildehoff went into the
house while Schoor stood outside and black
Both men are married and have children,

also, and a few minutes later Schoor came
into HildehofTs house. The two houses are
connected by a door on the inside, through
which Schoor entered. He again begun
his abuse ot his neighbor, and finally struck
HildehofTs wife in the face and knocked
her down. AVithout any parley, Hildehoff
drew his revolver, and, as Schoor came to
ward him to attack him also, he fired, the
ball striking Schoor in the lower abdomen,
near the left groin.
The trouble had attracted the attention of
the neighbors, who, on hearing the report,
ran in and fonnd Schoor lying on the floor.
They carried him into his own house, and
Physicians Ferguson and Fife were sent
for. They probed for the ball, but did not
find it, and pronounced the wound a fatal
Hildehoff, realizing what he had done,
immediately came into the city and gave
himself up to Police Captain Dick Brophy,
of the Seventeenth ward station.
Shortly afterward Mrs. Schoor went be
fore 'Squire Young, of Millvale borough,
and made an information against Hildehoff
for felonious shooting. The case was in
vestigated by Police Lieutenant Orth, who
reported it substantially as described.

rsrZCIAL TKLECRAM TO THI DISPATCH. 1
Scottdale, July 20. The reports re
ceived at Knights of Labor headquarters
here from almost every portion of the coke
region indicate that the workingmen are
determined to stand by the action of the
convention held here last Wednesday.
Leading members ot the order who are in a
position to know what they are talking
about are of the opinion that the operators
will grant them a conference, at which a
sliding scale will be adopted and a strike
avoided. They base their opinions on the
fact that the larger operators are securing
new territory and building new ovens as
rapidly as possible, which is taken as an
indication that coke will take an upward
turn in the near future. They also claim
that the operators cannot afford to lose their
present trade by allowing the men to remain
outany length of time, as in that event
their business would go to outside operators.
One of the officials of the Knights of Labor
stated that if no conference was granted or
advance given the men would certainly
strike. He also said that the men were
never so well prepared, financially, to make
a successful stand against the operators as

A SMALL RAILROAD WAR.
Stenbenville People Agitated by the Widen
lng of an Alley for a Enllroad.
ISrXCIAI. TELXOHAM TO TOE DISrATCH.1
STEUBENYH.T.E, O., July 20. The
Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad is having
some difficulty in securing its right of way
through Stenbenville. The city first under
took to widen Alley A from 20 to 40 feet,
avowedly for the access and use of the rail
road. This coarse, however, was aban
doned. It then gave the railroad right of
way through the 20-foot Alley A as it
stood. Some of the property owners along
the alloy then petitioned the city council
that Alley A be widened from 20 to 40 feet
tor alley and street purposes, as otherwise It
would be sot effectually occupied by the
railroad as to deprive them of their accus
tomed usage thereof. Those thus petition
ing, and they Were not a majority, were
willing that th city should condemn 20
feet off their lots ih order to get the railroad.
Certain other property owners, how-,
ever, were satisfied with the alley and
its existing usages and objected
to the improvemenftot the same by the rail
road, or to the cityrs condemning and de
priving them of 20 Additional feet in order
to accommodate the (railroad, and thus pre
serve to tnem tne privileges they were al
ready entitled to. Consequently the latter
have employed counsel in the persons of
Captain W. A. Walden, of Columbus, and
John A. Cook, of Steubenville, who, among
other things, are preparing to prevent by
injunction the city's action in respect to the
alley, which they claim, is after all pri
marily and solely done fbr the railroad.
The city's solicitor, WilJiam McD. -Miller,
has just filed a petition, application and
notice to the effect that onJJuly 29 they will
apply for the impaneling of a'jury to assess

MR. EEELI'S MOTOR.
It's Not Runnlut: Yet, Bnt the Inventor Says
He'll Soon' Talk Now.
Philadelphia, July 20. With dirt
and smoked-begrimed face, unkempt hair
and shirt sleeves rolled up above the el
bows, a man stood at the second story win
dow of 1122 North Twentieth street
this afternoon gazing thoughtfully out
into the drizzling rain. He was
John Keely, the great motor inventor.
During the afternoon a number of visitors
called on Mr. Keely, but were unable to
gain admittance. One young man rapped
about five minutes without receiving an
answer. Becoming enraged at this lack of
attention, he gave the door a vigorous
kicking and succeeded in shaking down
the large transom, which fell with a crash.
This brought the inventor to the street in a
hurry. He grasped the youth by both
shoulders and demanded the meaning of
such conduct The reply only served to
anger him more. The visitor simply came
to inspect the new motor. He was from
some engineering school up the country and
had come to the oity expressly to see the
much-talked-of invention. Of course he
"I am much troubled with this sort of vis
itors," Mr. Keely said to a reporter; "they
have an idea that we can allow them access
to our shop, when in reality I am positively
forbidden to talk concerning the motor."
When asked how soon the motor would be
put into practical operation, Mr. Keely said
he could not state, but ventured to say that
he is working day and night, and would an
nounce something definite at an early date.

When arrested a few hours later Wilhelm
denied all knowledge of them, but when
asked to explan his possession of the molds
he weakened. Ten dollars of the bogus

Secretary Noble Din ken an Important modi
fication of the Rule Relating- to the
Time of Tbelr Cultivation-Ex-Commissioner
Washington, July 20 Secretary No
ble to-day in a letter to the Commissioner of
the General Land Office modified in a veay
important particular the application of the
rule as to time to cultivation in timber cult
ure cases. The timber culture act of June
14, 1878, provides that "Any person who
shall plant, protect aud keep in healthy
growing condition for eight years ten acres
of timber on any quarter section of any. of
the public lands ot the United States shall
be entitled to a patent at the expiration of
said eight years, on making proof, etc."
Section 2 of this act provides that "No final
certificate shall be given or patent issued
until the expiration ot eight years Irom the
date of entry."
Land Commissioner Macfarland, in circu
lar of instructions to registers and receivers.
'dated February 1,1882. held that one-half
oi the trees must have actually been grow
ing for five years andhe remaining half
for four years to conform to the terms of the
act. This interpretation of the law was sus
tained in a subsequent decision, which held
that the preparation-of land and planting of
trees are acts of cultivation, and the time
actually so employed should be computed as
part of the eight years required in the timber
culture jases, and as the act provided for
three years' cultivation of the land before
the trees could be planted, the effect of the
ruling was to compute the period of cultiva
tion from the date ot entry.
On Juue 27, 1887, Commissioner Sparks,
in a circular to registers and receivers, di
rected that "in computing the period of
cultivation the time runs from the date
when the total number of trees, seeds or
cuttings required by the act are planted,"
and the final proofs of entry not having
complied with this rule were rejected.
Secretary Noble, in his letter to-day to
the commissioner, sustains the ruling made
by Commissioner Sparks, but savs: "Inas
much as the department from the time of the
passage of the bill up to thedate of June 27,
1887, erroneously construed the true spirit
and Intent of the- act, and in pursuance
thereof numerous estries have been made
under the law u tins promulgated, amount-.
lag to some 2,500 or more, such entries
should be protected under' the construction
thus given, the act giving such. construction
all force and effect of law. Were it not so
great wrong and inconvenience would re
sult." The Secretary therefore directs that the
rule in the case of Henry Hooper in point
be so modified as to hold that all entries
made under the act as construed from Feb
ruary 1, 18S2, up to June 27, 1887, should
pass to patents, and that all entries made
after the annonncement of tbat doctrine
should be governed and controlled by the
principles therein enunciated.

THE CRAMERS RICH.
A Large Entailed Property That Will Make
a Braddock Family -Wealthy His
tory of on Estate 9Ioro
Than 100 Years Old.
There live in Braddock three of a family
named Cramer, who, by the law of entail
ment, become the possessors of a vast estate
on the borders of Cape May that will make
them immensely wealthy. It is more than
a century ago since the May and Steelman
families emigrated to this country from En
gland and settled in New Jersey. The May
family cleared off the heavy growth of for
est from the timber lands and built the old
May homestead, at May's Landing, Cape
The Steelmans settled near the estatei
of the Mays, from whom Cape
May, May's Landing and Cape May county
derived their names. As almost everyone
is aware, the Indians at this time were in
complete possession of almost all the land
in the country. The Mays therefore held a
conference with the chiefs of the Dela
wares, who owned the land in that part of
tne country, and purchased irom tbem
some 6,000 -or 7,000 acres of land lying
back from the seacoast in the counties of
Cumberland, Salem and Cape May. The
price paid did not reach 25 cents per acre.
Other smaller tracts lying in the latter
county, and aggregating some 4,000 or 5,000
acres, came to them as a grant from King
George III., of England. Thus the estate
of the Mays comprised about 11,000 acres
of land. Some parts of the tracts are very
fertile. Others are covered with walnut
and pine forests, and cranberry meadows.
Joseph Steelman, a son of the first settler
of that name, married the only daughter of
the Mays, thus bringing the estate into the
possession of the Steelmans,her father dying
before she was married.
Joseph Steelman, the second, had one son
and two daughters. The son's name was
also Joseph. On the death of his father he
received a portion of the land as his share
amounting to 6,565 acres. An equal share
of the remaining 5,000 acres went to his two
maiden sisters, for they never married. At
their death all ot their inheritance reverted
oacK to tneir Drotner Joseph, as the prop
erty was entailed by Joseph's grandfather
that is, the Steelman of the second
generation. Being an Englishman and;be
lieving in the law of entail, he decided to
keep it in the family. The sons at different
periods of their lives leased or sold portions
of their estates, but it all came back again
to their heirs after tneir death by the said
law of entailment
The last Joseph Steelman had ten child
ren, five of whom are dead and five living.
The five who are dead all had heirs, who
are living at the present time. The five
children of the former who are living are
Mrs. Naomi Updike, living in Cumberland
county, K. J.; Margaret Estlow, Millville,
Cumberland county, N. J.; Reuben Steel
man, Ocean City, K. J.; Elizabeth Smith,
May's Landing, 17. J., and the other whose
name is not recalled. The five that are
dead are Hannah, Joseph, David and Alice
Steelman and Mrs. Roxanna Cramer,
mother of all the Cramer boys living here
of that name. Tbey were all born on the
old homestead at May's Landing, that is,
all the children ot the Steelman's. The
tracts that are estimated at the lowest figure
to comprise no less than 10,000 acres,
were then the property of the ten children,
that of those who are dead, reverting to
their heirs, or each one of them being en
titled to 1,000 acres of the grant.
Mrs. Roxanna Cramer left ten children,
all of whom are living. The youngest of
these is Mr. Reuben Cramer, of this place.
The others, with the order of their ages and
places of residence, are Joseph Cramer,
Baker's Furnace, Cambria county; Mary
Ann Black, WeJ Middlesex; Elizabeth
Rer. Wilson Cramer, Huntington; David
Cramer, Armagh, Indiana couuty; George
Cramer, Monroeville, Armstrong county;
Ellen Dean, Braddock, and Frank Cramer,
uraaaocK. .cacti one ot these children is
thus entitled to one-tenth of the share of
their mothers, or 100 acres. All the land yet
lies in its original, undivided state. In
Cumberland county, on the Delaware river,
lies the 6,565 acres. A 2,000-acre tract and
a 1,100-acre piece lie between Salem and
Cape May counties. A tract of 10 acres lies
directly near the beach of Cape May.
Since the estate was first entailed, the
three generations that are necessary to make
the law of entailment void, have sprung up,
the last-named ten children of Mrs.Roxanna
Cramer composingxpart of the third gener
ation. If they so desire, they may now di
vide the estate into ten equal shares or its
value, and these into minor shares. But
until the death of one of the surviving chil
dren of the. last Joseph Steelman, the estate
cannot be sold, as it yet requires the death
of a majority of tbem to thus free it from all
the bonds of entailment.

Inventor Campbell's machine is stored at
R. Taggart's storage warehouse, at 593
Hudson street The balloon was used
in the ascension by Prof. Hogan.
Prof. Campbell was seen by the re
porter an hour afterward, at his
jewelry store in South Brooklyn., "x"es,"
he said, when the reporter had described
what he had seen in Taggart's warehouse,
"that is the Campbell air ship, and it
is stored there because it costs
less than to exhibit it They
wanted to charge me $50 a week to
keep it on Fourteenth street, where it wai
formerly exhibited, and Taggart stores it
for $20 a week. When Prof. Hogan wanted
to go up I brought the balloon part over to
THE CAB HOGAN USED.
"What kind of a car was it Prof. Hogan
went up in?" the reporter asked.
"It was a flimsy affair, of his own inven
tion," said Mr. Campbell, "and I had noth
ing whatever to do with it"
Hogan proposed to Campbell, in let
ters which the latter showed, to con
struct a new air ship and use
coal gas. Hydrogen was necessary
to raise the Campbell ship. Hogan says:
"The new one will do as much in the air as
the old one, and cannot get hnrt by landing
jt It will weigh 75 pounds. I can mate
it after July 4, and sail it at New
York and get a big boom. There
is no use in getting ground, as it
will not pay, as that has been tried. I can
nake the start from some back street and
have no expense of grounds to pay. Then
we can get some one to take hold of it, and
then we can get money out of it"
"As a matter of" fact," continued Mr.
Campbell, "Prof. Hogan's car, when com
pleted, weighed 60 pounds. It was made in
a wheelwright's shop, near the Nassau Gas
Company's yards, from which the ascent
was made. It was
StJCH A IXIMST AFFAIB
that I wouldn't have trnsted myself in it
to go as high as the housetop. "He had a
light framework made, to which the roDea
of the balloon were attached,and from which,
the car was suspended. The fn-mework was
a rectangular structure of four pieces of
pine, three inches in width and an inch
thick. It was about 20 feet long and two feet
wide, and was suspended edgewise under
the balloon. The whole was covered with
canvas, like a mosquito screen in a doorway.
"Prof. Hogan had had constructed two pro
pellers, embodying the principles I had ap
plied to the other air ship. There was
a propeller underneath the car, the
one that dropped off; That ProC
Hogan himself had made. Another, which
projected breast high over the side of the
car aft, was taken from the old air ship.
This was intended to propel the ship back
ward or forward. Both propellers were, of
course, to be worked by hand. All that
Prof. Hogan had in the car was some sand
bags, a life preserver and a drag rope, and
he would not have had these if I had not put
them in. Until some definite information is
received concerning him I shall continue to
think him alive."
HOGAN'S BROTHER HURT.
He Takes ttie Lost Aeronaut's Place and Ills
Parachute Doesn't Work.
St. Thomas, Ont, July 20. William
Hogan, of Jackson, Mich., brother of E. D.
Hogan, the missing aeronaut, made a
balloon ascension Jiere at 6:30 1 ast evening,
going 4,000 feet high, and had a narrow escape
from death. The top guy rope of the bal
loon became fastened to the parachute, and
it was not until the balloon had reached
within 900 feet of the ground in its descent
that the aeronaut was able to shake the rope
off. Had he jumped before making the
discovery the balloon wonld have turned
over upon the parachute, driving it to the
ground, and instant death would have been
the result. Hogan alighted upon a stone,
breaking two ribs, and was dragged 50 feet,
brnisine his side and shoulder. He left
this morning, for Jackson.
