Niagara Fails, September 1. Carlisle
D. Graham this morning accomplished the
feat of going over Niagara Falls alive, much
to the surprise of his friends and the people
who are familiar with the force of the tor
rent. It has been the height of Graham's
ambition for over three years to go over the
The preparations for to-day's trip were
quickly made, although the experiments of
sending torpedoes, floats and barrels over
the cataract during the last two months
were made with this end in view. The bar
rel boat in which Gtaham risked his life
was the one used by him last Sunday to
make the perilous trip through the whirl
pool and the Devil's Bapids. It is Graham's
AN EXPERIMENTAL TRIP.
His wife refused to consent to to-day's
trip unless he sent the barrel over first
This was done late yesterday afternoon, and
the craft made the trip safely in about 35
minutes Then Mrs. Graham again ob
jected, and she was told that Graham would
not go over for several days anyway.
Graham divested himself of everything
except a pair of black trunks, two shirts
ybnd his shoes, he then got into the barrel
through the manhole, and crouched down
in the bottom, fastening himself with three
canvas straps. Then two other men to wed
the barrel out into the river.
THE AMBITION OP A IiTJX.
Graham had previously given his gold
watch and $40 in money to Constable Hern,
with an injunction to give it to his family
if he failed to come out alive. "I may be
tempting God's providence," said Graham,
"to try to go over the falls, but it is the am
bition of my life to do this. I am satisfied
to die if it is necessary. Goodby, boys."
Constable Staley tnrew the iron drag into
- the river and the barrel boat started on its
journey. Everything was secure. The
extra irons had been carefully fastened, the
manhole cover had been battened with tar
paulin, and Graham was securely fastened.
The barrel moved slowly, almost painfully
slow, down to the Horseshoe Kapids. Sud
denly it disappeared, and the watchers
thought it had
GONE tTNDER FOE GOOD,
but it reappeared in a few minutes, and
kept dashing on down the upheaved torrent
toward the brink of the cataract.
The red top of the barrel was seen most of
the way, but occasionally there was a daz
zling streak of drab, which showed how the
barrel was spun around by the waves as
they carried the craft onward to the brink
of the falls. The two constables solemnly
agreed never to divulge the fact that they
had started Graham on the trip unless he
came out safely. Staley rowed across to the
American side, and Hern drove as fast as he
could to and across the bridge.
Just 25 minutes after Graham had teen
cast adrift, people on Table Bock, who had
watched an hour or more, and were just
ready to go away, saw the barrel come
swiftly down, about 200 feet from the
Canadian shore and well away from the
inner horseshoe. The barrel
StVEPT DOWN OVER THE TAXIS
in the water, and did not shoot out, as was
expected. This saved the shock of a fall of
nearly 200 feet The time was just 7:10.
The mist of the morning had cleared away,
and the increased crowd on the river banks
watched anxiously for the barrel to reap
pear. In just one and a half minutes it
came bobbing up in the foam, circled
around in the swirl, and went into the bass
rock eddy, only a few hundred feet from the
foot of the falls.
Along the banks, on both sides, friends of
the intrepid navigator waited to rescue him
as soon as be came to the surface. It was so
early that the steamer Maid of the Mist had
not started up for the day, and rowboats
cannot be safely taken very tar away from
tbeferryline toward the falls. People watch
ing for the barrel with marine glasses finally
descried it, and expected, when the barrel
came into the comparatively smooth eddy,
that Graham would appear. He did not

THE BARBEL CAUGHT.
Aimer Jones, who was near this point,
hastened to the eddy, and when the barrel
was within a few feet of the rocky shore, ho
swam out to it He secured it by the drag
rope, of which only ten of the 50 feet were
left, and dragged itashorc. Michael Cahill
came up 'in time to help him open the
The iron coverings of the manhole were so
bent that they could hardly be moved.
Graham had locked the barrel inside with
nn iron .fastener which he had not sufficient
strength left to release, so the top of the
cask had to be broken in to get him out.
The two men dragged Graham ont, more
'dead than alive.
"His neck is swollen," shouted a man on
jTable Bock, as he saw the limp body laid
-on the rocks. Cahill rubbed Graham, while
Jones forced some whisky down his throat

They finally revived him and got him down
to the Maid of the Mist landing, where a
carriage took him .over to the Prospect
Graham was in the barrel just 50 minutes,
and most of the time the little airhole was
closed. His injuries were fonnd not to be
serious. His arms were skinned, his knees
were bruised and in the first tall in the
rapids he received a blow on the head which
may result seriously. The excitement kept
him tip at first, but afterward he had to go
to bed. His condition was so serious that
William Devere, the theatrical manager
who has been backing Graham, summoned
the navigator's wife from Buffalo. She is
now taking care of him.
Mr. Graham was seen this evening by
The Dispatch correspondent and asked
to relate his experiences. "I determined to
make the trip this morning," said the navi
gator, "because I was satisfied that I could
do it safely. I notified all the people I
could trust and went ahead. They can tell
you what they saw."
"But wh3t did you see?"
COULD SEE NOTIIING.
"Nothing. I was locked up in the bar
rel. I could not have gotten out to have
saved my neck. The irons on the bottom
were all right, but those on the top had to
be movable, and Constable Hern locked
them. That was the only way they could
be fixed. I was just as helpless as a dog
would have been. I went down to the
combing, or reef, where the Horseshoe
rapids start, so quickly that I was hardly
prepared. The fall there must be 15 or 20
feet. The first thing I knew I seemed to be
going into a deep abyss, and then I
got a crack on the head like a policeman
would give a drunk. Then I didn't know
much. I was tossed about like a feather. I
couldn't get much air, and did not dare to
change my position. I had braced myself
with the aid of the straps, so I was sure I
would not strike my head again. The barrel
was built of Chinese locust w5od, the strong
est kind of stuff, and had given it the bene
fit of my experience in torpedoes and other
craft which were wrecked in the cataract."
"What were your sensations when you
went over the falls?"
"I cannot tell just when I did go over the
falls," said Graham. "The awtul shaking
up I got stupefied me. I felt happy. I felt
like a'man who has passed into the painless
portion of a death by drowning. There
was a sen;e of danger mixed with plea' re,
which then seemed more pleasant than I do
now after accomplishing this feat, which
has been the ambition ot my life. There
were many shocks in the trip, but none so
great as the first one, and the mere act of
going over the falls did not make itself par
ticularly felt. I was not entirely oblivious,
but I felt helpless and voiceless. There
was the terrible roar in my ears I tried to
speak aloud in the barrel, to break it, but I
couldn't It was simply awful. Yet I
A. CONTENTED BESIGNATION
that I cannot now understand. The first I
knew that I was really over Niagara Falls
was when the barrel went in Bass Bock
eddy. I was in almost an insensible condi
tion. They rapped on the barrel and
shouted to me. I could hear them talfc to
me, and I tried to answer, but couldn't.
Finally they broke open the barrel. I
didn't faint, but I don't know what hap
pened for awhile."
"Will you attempt the trip again?"
"Never. Once is enough. I came to
Niagara Falls three years ago to go over
the tails. People said all I had to do was
to go through the rapids. I did it. Then
others followed me. Then I went through
the whirlpool, and they chased me there.
Last Sunday I made a better trip than any
of them, and escaped after I was drawn way
down in the Devil's Maelstrom. To-day I
have eclipsed everything. The falls have
always been here. I have gone over them
alive. Now let some of my detractors do
the same. They usually follow where I
lead. But if they take my advice they
will never attempt it I have had enough
of it it has taken ten years of my life to
prepare Tor what I "went through in half an
hour this morning."

rerECIALTELEORAM TO THE DISPATCn. 1
Atlantic City, September 1. Mrs.
Hamilton's first Sunday atthe Mays Land
ibg jail was to her a lonely and sickening
experience. Her guard says she awoke
early and paced back and forth like a sen
tinel from front tos rear of the dark and
gloomy attic. She wore a loose wrapper
and allowed her sunny hair to fall unkempt
over her shoulders. A cup of sweetened
coffee sufficed for her breakfast, a dish of
boiled rice for dinner, and at the supper
hour she ate a muffin and drank a enp of
tea, and that only at the earnest solicitation
of Mrs. Johnson, the kind-hearted wife of
Sheriff Johnson. Her confinement is tell
ing severely on her. Her eyes are deep set
and have dark lines underneath them and
her checks look pale and sunken. Not a
visitor called on her to-day, which fact
seemed to worry her.
The Sheriffs wife handed her a prayer
book and a hymnal, but the gave them
back. "I have no use for such Looks,"
she said, "and haven't had for many
a year." A young lady sent her up
a bouquet accompanied by a few sympathet
ic lines, bomeone else sent a box of tutti
lrnitti. which was eagerly accepted by the
captive, who quickly broke the seal and
began active mastication. For the first time
since her imprisonment she made anxious
inquiries about the condition of Mary Don
nelly, the wounded nurse, and requested
the Sheriff's wife to keep her posted as to
what the doctors say.
Counselor Perry left to-day for New York
to consult with Hamilton's lawyers. Mrs.
Donnelly's condition is but slightly im
proved. Mrs. Swinton was again refused
permission to enter the Noll cottage. Dr.
Eeilly has not yet made an official examina

"lind said to him: "I told you to keep out of

man to treat my sister as you have treated
her. You've got to take this." As he spoke
he drew a revolver and fired. The bullet
did not hit Walters. The aim was so bad
that it struck Nodine in the left side and
Nodine fell to the sidewalk. Policeman
Voorhees heard the shot and ran to the
place. Mr. Walters pointed to the fleeing
assailant and the policeman gave chase and
captured him a block away. Nodine was
taken in an ambulance to St Catherine's
Hospital. His injuries are severe and may
prove mortal. The bullet, the surgeon says,

Mr. Walters' story is as follows: "I was
not myself on Saturdav night and it seems
I had some trouble with my wife about the
children. They say I struck and beat her,
blackening her eyes. -Her brother, Charley
De Lacy, came to the house this morning
and asked me why I did that to her. I told
him I had no recollection of doing it. He
left the house telling me to keep out of his
way. I did not see him as I was talking to
Nodine until be stood in front ot me. He
drew the revolver and fired so quickly that
I did not have time to move. His excite
ment saved me. Had he taken any.kind of
aim he would have killed me."
DeLacy regrets very much that the ball
struck Nodine, with whom he was intimate.
"I wish," he said, "it had hit the man who
deserved to get it." Coroner Lindsay took
Nodine's statement. He wished to have it
understood that he knew DeLacy did not
mean to shoot him.

New Yoke, September 1. General W.
T. Sherman, who has returned from the
West, told to-day of his experience in Mil
waukee with members of Phil Sheridan
Post, G. A. B., of Chicago. He said that
he and his brother, Major Hoyt Sherman,
being bound from Milwaukee to Chicago,
were shown to a certain car by one of the
railway men, and they not only took pos
session of the seats which they supposed they
had engaged, but thp General,seeing several
adjacent seats vacant, hospitably invited
Senator Manderson and General McArthur,
who had joioed them, to occupv two o
them. He had scarcely done this when the
colored porter came in and said: "General
Sherman, your seats are in the car ahead."
He and his brother accordingly went to the
next car and occupied the two seats which
they had engaged and paid for.
General Sherman did not know the Grand
Army men who caused him and his brother
to beousted from the seats they had taken
at first, but he says they knew him and had
him ousted with their eyes open. He thinks
they had a perfect right to oust him, but he
thinks they might have been politer in

Baton Bouge. A large number of colored
men and women were near the depot wait

The above account of the trouble is from
the police of Gretna. A terrible panic oc
curred, women and children runnins in all

Ed Levy, a colored man living in Algiers,
was shot in the left arm, and a colored
woman named Fleming was fatally shot in
the back. Mr. John Bainy, the "Superin

IE. M. Andrews, a wealthy architect and

.by angry blacks on January 1, 1886, and
his supposed widow, a "resident of Nauga
tuck, collected part ot the insurance on his
life. There is .positive evidence now that

come back her wandering husband, and he
is said to be waiting only for a satisfactory
arrangement with the Masonic fraternity,
'whereby the insurance money paid by them
to his wife shall be refunded, when he will
step out of his hiding place. On the author
ity of E. C. Baldwin, of Naugatuck, it is
asserted that Andrews is in Portland, Ore.,
where, when a young man, he lived for a
time and was getting along prosperously.
The history of Mr. Amirews from January
1, 1886, to the present time is involved in
mystery. Some darkly hint at a Southern
romance and others talk of mental aberra
tion, from which he has only just recovered.
In 1885 Mr. Andrews got the Florida fever,
and went to see the famous Deland, who has
made a fortune in colonizing the Flowery
State. He became enthusiastic on the money
to be made, in Florida lumber, and came
North. He went back in a schooner fitted
out expensively at New Haven, and landed
at Palatka. Thence he went up the river to
Deland and thence four miles further into
the swamps and forests of Highland Park,
where he established the second largest saw
mill in the State. -He obtained one big
railroad contract, but after that he failed
disastrously, lumber going down to 58 aud
The following summer Mr. Andrews was
troubled with malarial fever, and at one
time, it is said, showed symptoms of insan
ity. He got behind in business and became

Washington, September 1 When
Daniel Bansdell began to dismiss Demo
crats from the United States Marshal's office
he said that they were good and efficient
men, but he knew of others who were quite
as good and efficient, and were friends of the
administration in addition. Bepublicans
all applauded. Now he appoints eight men
to places, and though three of them are In
dians, they are all Bepublicans.
Marshal Bansdell thinks he knows how
his old neighbor and friend, the President,
feels about turning the rascals out. There

hesitate to say that the latest proposition of
the Civil Service Commission, that to put
chiefs of divisions under the classified ser

rSFECIAX. TELEOnAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Haep.isbueo, September L Chairman
Kisner is here to look after the prelimina
ries of the Democratic State Convention,
which will meet in the opera house onWed
nesday. The physical activity of Mr. Kis
ner has been impaired by a violent attack of
rheumatism which pinned him to his bed
for two months, but his interest in Demo
cratic success has undergone no abatement,
and his determination to put his party on
top" is as pronounced as ever. With the
largely increased vote which he believes will
be given the Prohibition candidate for
Governor, as the result of the overwhelming
majority against the prohibitory amendment
in Philadelphia, Allegheny and other Be
publican counties, the promise of an active
campaign on the part of the Democrats, and
the record made by the Bepublican Legisla
ture at the recent session, he thinks there is
a fighting chance for the election of the
Democratic candidate for State Treasurer.
Chairman Kisner says the convention on
Wednesday will be fully attend ed and no
table for its harmony and singleness of pur
posethe defeat of the Bepublican. party.
The meetings of the- "Executive Committee
of the Democratic societies of Pennsylvania
and tbe Democratic State Committee will
attract here a large number of prominent
members of the party, independent of the
drawing power of the convention.
Most of the Chairmen of the Democratic
County Committees are expected in the city
to-morrow, as it is proposed totmake in
portant changes in the rules of the party,
the principal one of which is to make the
Chairman of the County Committee a mem
ber ot the State Committee, which would
give it 67 Chairmen, -in addition to one
.member from each county for every Senator
to which it is entitled. The meeting of the
State Committee will be unable to perform
tbe work assigned to it the first day, and an
adjonrned meeting will be held on Tuesday
to complete its business. ,
PEOSHNENT MEN EXPECTED.
The Executive Committee, which will
hold an important meeting prior to that of
the State Committee to-morrow afternoon,
consists ot William L. Scotf, Eckley B.
Coxe, B. F. Meyers, Mortimer F. Elliott,
James Kerr, J. Marshall Wright and C. H.
Krumbchaar, all of whom are expected to
be on hand. Chairman Kisner is particu
larly, anxious' that all prominent Pennsyl
vania Democrats pay the State Capital a
visit during the progress of the several
political gatherings, for the purpose of sug
gesting means for tbe promotion of a suc
cessful campaign, ine tact that only a
State Treasurer is to be nominated is no ex
cuse for their absence, as the fight this year
will have a decided bearing on the more im
portant battle of 1890, when a Governor is
to be elected. If they want to participate
in the nomination of a candidate for Gov
ernor next year, he trusts they will recog
nize the propriety of coming to the front
Chairman Kisner says there are 500,000
Democratic voters in the State, and,
IF riiOPEELT 2IAHSHALED,
a Democratic victory can be won this year,
and he desires every"county to be represented
by its most influential Democrats, in order
to accomplish such a result. . ihe only notice
of a contest received by Chairman Kisner is
from the Fifth districtof Allegheny county,
in which there are five contests.
The only candidates prominently named
for the nomination for State Treasurer are
ex-Collector Bigler, of Clearfield ; ex-Senator
Humes, of Crawford, and Colonel Frank
Magee, of York. Humes is desirous of
running on his sinking fund record-drafting,
an act which is a law providing for the in
vestment of the moneys in the sinking fund
in United States and State bonds, and in
tended to put an end to the practice of de
positing them in favorite banks at no pecuni
ary advantage to the State. His county has
instructed for him, but the chances for bis
success are not rosy. Colonel Magee is con
sidered by manv Democrats as the most
available candidate, because of his promi
nent connection with the Grand Army of
the Bepnblic and the National Guard of
BIGLER ON FIRST BALLOT.
Ex-Collector Bigler will likely capture
the nomination on the first ballot. The
only determined opposition to his election
will come from Allegheny county, because
of his prominent identification with tbe
fight which culminated in" the election of
Kisner as chairman over Dallas Sanders.
Cbauncey F. Black, President of the
Association of Democratic Clubs of this
State and the United States, will be here
to-morrow, in connection with his duties,
and it is not unlikely that he will feel the
pulse of prominent Democrats to see whether
it beats in the direction of his nomination
for Governor next year, as suegesterf by his
granger friend, Senator Brown, of York.
Ex-Lieutenant Governor Black has
a grievance against ex-United States Sena
tor Wallace, and is reported to be willing
to take the nomination himself, if by so
doing he can defeat Wallace.

The Liverpool Merchnnt Settled tho Ex

Boston, September 1. Albert Brierley,
the Liverpool merchant who has gained
world-wide notoriety through his connection
with the Maybrick murder, was a cabin
passenger on the Cunard steamship Scythia,
which arrived at East Boston this morning.
In an interview he said:
"I have no statement. When I left En
gland I told all that there was to say. I
came to ATmerica to escape notoriety and do
not want to figure in tbe daily journals."
He said ho heard of Mrs. Maybrick's re
"Is it true that you psid tbe cost of the
trial, amounting to 6,GO0?"
"Yes," he answered, "that was the sum."
"Do you care to say anything regarding
your relations with Mrs. Maybrick?"
"Nothing more than I have already said.
All I can say is that I have figured more,
prominently in the case in print than any
real connection with it warranted. Besides
this, I have nothing to say as to where I am
going in Boston, or after I leave
there. I have nothing to say regarding
anything, and you will Oblige me by bring
ing your questions to a close."
He then went below, refusing to talk
further. After leavinc the steamer all trace

made speeches. Resolutions declaring' that
the men would continue the strike twill
their demands were fully conceded 'were

It is estimated that 160,000 perse took
part in the demonstration at HydeBark.i
Daring the' progress of the -.meeting Mr,
Burns and others passed through the crowd,
and "took up a collection for the benefit
of the strikers. The money was re
ceived in hats and open parasok,
and a large sum was obtained. Air
American gentleman who was present
gave a handsome donation. Iu an inter
view, Mr. Burns said that the strike com
mittee had decided not to have a procession
to-morrow. They propose to devote the day
to real work, especially to improving the
methodsof collecting funds. Five thousand
railway men held a meeting at Darlington,
to-day andidecided to strike unless shorter,
hours of labor, were granted.
The Eeon'omitt predicts a disastrous re
sult for the strikers if they obtain the six
pence rate with the four-hour mini
mum. It says: "The number of men
seeking work at the docks -will largely
increase. The companies will em
ploy more permanent workmen and
avail themselves of fewer casual employes.
Only a few will be benefited. The lot of
the many will be harder than ever. The
law of the survival of the fittest will be ex
emplified by the strike,, the- wide-reaching
consequences of which will be unprece
dented in London's history."

having held up several stage coaches ia

He was at once recognized by the driver
of the Gogebic stage as the man who had
halted and fired on the stage,and recognized

inquired of the driver if he had been hurt
in the affray and seemed pleased io hear
that he escaped uninjured, but did not
evince any desire to talk further with him
concerning the tragedy.
ONE CAUSE TOE BEOEET. "
The only regret that Holzhay expresses, la
connection with his criminal career is
that the two officers at Bepublia
who had effected his captnre should have
succeeded in taking him so easily, as he
says he was determined not to be taken
alive sjnd declares that if he had the least
inkling of their purpose when they were ap
proaching with such apparent unconcern aa
he was starting-from the hotelhe would
have shot them down unhesitatingly. The"
proof against him, withoutbis admissions to
the officers, would be complete, and unless
he escapes by suicide or a bold rush foe
freedom, he is booked for a life term in the
State prison at Marquette.
A dispatch from Ishpeming says: Holz
hay, the highwayman, was taken through
Ishpeming this evening on the way to
Bessemer by Sherifi Dave Foley, of Gogebio
county. The rewards offered for the cap
ture of the outlaw are now assured to Mar
shal Glade, as the prisoner has been turned
over to the proper authorities. Holzhay
maintained his stolidity, although it must
have been known to him tbat in returning
to Gogebic county be was facing
death feoji a mob.
When questioned to-day he refused to af
firm or deny that he had robbed the Mil
waukee and Northern and Wisconsin Cen
tral trains, though it is certain he robbed
the former and very probably that he did
the latter job also.
Sheriff Folev will take his prisoner from
the train at North Bessemer at 1 o'clock
Monday morning. From there a stage will
be taken through the woods to Bessemer,
three miles distant. If any attempt at
lynching is made it will be before the stage
Popular feeling has run very high in
Gogebio county, and as the miners and
workmen have been idle to-day and ara
drinking at the saloons, it would be the
easiest thing in ihe world for one deter
mined man to organize a lynching party.
Sheriff Foley is known as a very deter
mined officer, and is accompanied by two
efficient deputies, but it is doubtful if thev
would resort to shooting an attacking mob
to save the
iife of the miscreant,
who coolly admits that he robbed and mur
dered a man in the same county less than a
week ago. If Holzhav is once lodged In tbe
Bessemer jail he will be safe; but late ad
vices from Gogebic county state that the
rope to hang Holzhay with has already
been picked out and tested.
A dispatch from Bessemer savs: Sheriff
Foley is expected to arrive from Marquette
between 1 and 2 o'clock in the morning
with the train robber and highwayman cap
tured yesterday. Streets and saloons ara
crowded to-night and there is much talk of
lynching him before the stage which meets
the train at North Bessemer reaches the
city. The crowd contains many who have
been drinking heavily through the day and
feels very ugly. No one will go to bed un
til the prisoner is either safe in the county
Jail or else dangling from some convenient
bough in the forest
