BlBMrxGHAir, October 26. Rube Bur
rows, the noted Alabama train robber, mur
derer and outlaw, has again defeated a
Sheriff's posse and added "two men to his
long list of victims.
Late yesterday afternoon, Burrows and
one member of his gang, supposed to have
been Ben Thornton, were surrounded near
Brooksville, Blount county, by SheriffMor
ris and a posse of 40 men. The outlaws
opened fire, and at the first volley, Deputy
Sheriffs Henry Anderson and Penwood
"Warp fell dead, the former shot through the
head and the latter through the breast The
officers returned the fire, and orer 100 shots
were exchanged. The posse were armed
only with .shotguns and pistols, and as they
were 200 yards from the outlaws they were
at a great disadvantage, as the latter were
armed with repeating rifles ot large caliber.
James Herron, ot the posse, was dangerous
ly wounded, and five otners, whose names
could not be learned, received slight flesh
wounds. The outlaws fired only at one
point in the surrounding line and cutting
a gap in it, they made a rush for liberty ana
escaped, no pursuit being made by the
posse, who remained to care for the dead
Sheriff Morris came to this city to-day
after help and repeating rifles for his depu
ties. His story of the battle and the first
discovery of the outlaws in Blount is that
KubeJBurrows and a partner were at the
house of Bnd Ashworth, five miles sonth of
Brooksville. He got three or four men and
started down to Ashworth's at once. They
rode up to the gate of the Ashworth yard
and, leveling their guns at the door, called
to the inmates, notifying them that they
had come after Burrows and his pal, and
ordering them to come out.
A -H-OSIAIT AS A SHIELD.
In response to this Bube appeared at the
door with a woman in front ot him, serving
as a snieia Detween mm and tbe ofneers
guns, and replied defiantly that he would
die before he would surrender. The officers
would not shoot for fear of hitting the
woman. Seeing that the officers hesitated
to shoot, the two desperadoes came out of
the door, and still keeping the woman be
tween them and the Sheriffs posse, retreated
slowly, facing the officers with their enns
leveled on them. Neither .jiarty toot down
their guns, and neither fired
while the siow retreat nnder cover
of the woman -was going on until the out
laws got some distance from the officers and
near a little skirt of wood, when Bube and
his pal fired into the sherifTs posse and
dashed off into the timber, where they were
soon out of sight. They only fired one shot
each, and didn't hit any one. As soon as
they got out of range o! the woman the fire
was returned, but without effect.
The officers followed the outlaws for a
while, but soon realized that a chase through
the woods after such skilled bushwhackers
was not only dangerous but fruitless, and
gave it up and returned to Oncouta, the
seat of Blount county. The officers did not
reach Oneonta till late at night, and of
course could do nothing till the next morn
ing, which was yesterday. Early yesterday
morning Deputy -Sheriff Morris began or
ganizing another and larger posse for the
purpose of renewing the chase after the
desperadoes. Shortly before noon he had
bummoned 40 men armed with pistols and a
few with shotguns, and with these he started
for the Ashworth neighborhood, which is
about seven miles irom Oneonta. They
reached the Ashworth farm about 3 p. si.
Scattering out they snrrouuded it and then
began to close up. examining every thicket
and clump of bnshes as they went This
operation was kept up till abont S o'clock.
CLOSING IN ON THE OUTLAWS.
By that time the circle had grown so
small that the scouting parly were in speak
ing distance of one another, and the chase
was crowing exciting The men were mov
ing cautiously and with bated breath, when
there came a puffof smoke from a clump of
bushes almost in the center of the circle, fol
lowed by the crack of a rifle, and at the
same instant young Henry Anderson fell
dead with a bullet in his forehead. Bang!
bangl bang! came the shots in quick succes
sion. In a second more two others of the
posse, one on each side of young Anderson
fell, and the hunted desperadoes dashed out
of the bushes and made their escape through
the cap in the line that had been made by
their well-directed shooting. They had evi
dently calculated to do with their fire just
what tknw AX A .l At.. 1! . .. " .

shows how well they had reckoned and
how well they bad executed. As
the two men ran through the
broken line from one cover to another
they continued to fire at everv man they
saw and succeeded in wounding six others.
Their fire was warmly returned and 100
shots or more were fired at the rapidly re
treating figures, but without any apparent
effect The fusilade Hasted about a minute
-when the bushmen disappeared from sight
in the dense forest growth. '
Gathering up their killed and wounded
the posse returned to Oneonta, the countv
. seat, to await assistance and better arms.
Jaheriff Morris secured no help here, and
-said he would mate no further attempt to
capture Burrows with the arms at his com

The Stella Wler Drama lias Another Actor
In It 3fr. Slater's FpcnIInr Trip Letters
A hew character appeared in the Stella
"Wier drama yesterday. Father Bernard, of
the Sonthside, received a letter from Mother
Superior Gertrude, of the Convent of the
Good Shepherd, in Columbus, in which she
stated that a man giving his name
as Karl Slater called at the institu
tion on "Wednesday, represented himself as
a good Catholic and especial friend of
Father Bernard, and asked permission to
see Stella "Wier. He was asked if he had a
note from Father Bernard, and as he could
not produce any he was denied admission, the
Mother Superior saying she did not want
any more annoyance or deception. Fearing
Slater might endeavor to impose upon her
with a fictitious or false telegram, she tele
graphed to Father Bernard and received a
reply that no one by that name had received
his consent to see the girl.
The Mother Superior states that upon
being refused an interview with Stella,
Slater published a statement in the Colum
bus papers to the effect that he had seen her,
which is now denied in the letter to Father
Bernard. She states that dur
ing the whole time Slater was
at the convent Stella was not even per
mitted to be brought to the parlor where he
was. A postscript says: "I am pretty sure
Mr. Slater had others waiting outside the
door," indicating that abduction might have

of 1310 Carson, was seeu last night, and he
admitted to being the man referred to. He
said he went to Colnmbus on Wednesday to

time. He denied several statements in
Mother Superior Gertrude's letter, saying
that he did not claim to be a Catholic or
that he was a friend of Father .Bernard. He

Father Bernard is so much exercised ovor
the publicity he has been given in connec

last night Alderman Hartman said:
"Time and subsequent developments
are demonstrating the wisdom ot

Since the girls have been in the Columbus

WHAT A ONE-CENT STAMP COST.
A Fight Over Its Possession In the New
New Yobk, October 26. Two men quar
reled to-day in the postofSce over a one-cent
postage stamp that lay on the floor, each
claiming it as his own. From words they
came to blows, and in the scrimmage their
hats fell off. One of tbe combatants had a
good hat and the other a depraved looking
tile. The latter getting the worst of the
fight, picked up the former's hat, and nut
ting it on on his head, ran rapidly across
City Hall Park. When the victor took in
the situation, after examining his new but
oia acquisition, ne started alter his hat, fol
lowed by a shouting crowd. These were re
inforced on the way by many residents of
the park, who cried, "Stop, thief!" Whether
the victor ever recovered his hat no one
knows, but an indnstrions newsboy picked
up the stamp that caused the trouble and
took charge of it.

Hnnslnc to be Introduced In One Section
Knoxville, Tenn., October 26. The
Supreme Court to-day decided a case unpre
cedented in the history of Tennessee.
Bast January Henly Sutton, a prom
inent stock buyer of Hancock coun
ty, was fired upon by men in ambush
and killed. Suspicion pointed to five men,
John, Anderson, John H., Elisha and Clin
ton Barnard. They were closely related to
each other and a' family fend had long
reigned between them and the Buttons. The
Barnards were arrested and tried in the
Circuit Court ot Hancock on the same in
dictment, convicted and sentenced to be
hanged. An- appeal was taken to the Su
preme Court and that body confirmed the
sentence of the lower court They will be
hanged on December 23.
It is a remarkable case in several particu
lars, and the first on record where five men
were tried for murder on the same indict
ment and convicted. A.t the same term of
the lower court, six men were sentenced to
be hanged and several sent to the peniten
tiary for long terms for homicide. The first
sentence to hang ever given in the county
was given at that term. Hancock county,
which adjoins Kentucky, has been long
noted for bloody feuds and fatal shooting
affrays, but the decision to-day, it is thought,
will start a new order of things in the moun
A STOLEN CERTIFICATE
Kccovered Through the Confessional, But
the Owner Not Satisfied.
St. Louis, October 26. Mrs. M. K.
Hyde, of 814 North Seventeenth street,
tells an interesting story of the recovery of
a certificate of deposit of $2,000 through the
confessional. Mrs. Hyde's husband is in the
coal business. They always kept considerable
money in a trunk in a third-story room.
About two months ago Mrs. Hyde locked
in the trunk $200 in crisp paper money and
a Bank of Commerce certificate of deposit
for $2,000. The next day the cash and cer
tificate were "gone, though the trunk was
still locked. The police were informed, but
thev did not succeed in getting anv trace of
A few days ago Mrs. Hyde received a
note telling her to call on Bev. Father P.
P. Brady, vicar general of this diocese.
She did so, and Father Brady told her she
would have the certificate of deposit re
turned and possibly the money. Calling a
second time by request she received tbe cer
tificate, but not the money. Father Brady,
however, would give no information as to
how he got the paper. Mrs. Hyde does not
propose to let to let the case drop, however,
but will make every effort to find the thief
and force the return of the $200. She put
the matter in the hands of detectives to
day. POLITICAL ASSESSMENTS.

COPYBIGIIT, 1SS9, BY THIS 1TEWTOBK ASSOCIATED
Berlin, October 26. The proposed con
ference between Prince Bismarck, Count
Kalnoky and Premier Crlspi has been de
layed until after Emperor William's visit to
tbe Sultan of Turkey, lhe political im
portance of the event is not now denied. It
is admitted in official circles that hopes are
entertained that the Emperor's interviews
with the Sultan will result in the ad
hesion of Turkey to the general aims of the
triple alliance, without her formally enter
ing the league.
Bismarck's project is to construct a second
defensive line behind the Dreibund, con
sisting of England and -Turkey, not com
mitted by treaty to the special purposes of
the central European alliance, but linked
by kindred interests. Hence he is man
euvering to commit Lord Salisbury to a
new treaty with Turkey relating to the per
manent occupation of Egypt.
THE CHANCELLOR'S PROJECTS.
Count Herbert Bismarck will precede
Emperor William to Constantinople in
order to meet the German and English
Ambassadors and the Turkish Foreign
Minister before the interview between the
German and Turkish monarch. Bis
marck's projects in regard to a Balkan set
tlement, as' communicated to the Czar, have
led to a temporary cessation of hostile Bus
The Czar has certainly consented to per
mit the Chancellor to -try to realize some
modus vivendi, holding hiinstlt free to re
sort to independent action in event of the
scheme failing. It is the impression in tbe
Foreign Office that the Chancellor will not
fail, and that the negotiations will lead to
another Berlin conference in the spring to
revise the treaty on a basis that will better
secure European peace.
The Sultan, desiring to invest the recep
tion of Emperor William with the greatest
pomp, has directed Marshal Ali Nizamii,
Aarifi Pasha, the President of the Council
and other Ministers, and Generals Achmed,
Von Goltz and Streiker to proceed to tbe
Island of Phedas to meet the Emperor.
General Streiker was aid-de-camp to
Crown Prince Frederick when he visited
Constantinople in 1869.
A GREAT AFFAIR.
The German reception committee has
chartered three vessels to go to San Stefano.
The Germans will give a banquet to the
members of the imperial suite and a "corn
mere" to the officers of the squadron. The
news of the arrival of the imperial party
aboard the Hohenzollern in the Piraeus
was telegraphed here at 2 o'clock this after
noon. The German squadron was sighted
passing the extreme southeast peak of
Moria at b o clock this morning. A gale
was then blowing.
Court telegrams state that heavy weather
was encountered. The Empress was pros
trated bv seasickness. The Kintr and'
Queen of Greece and lhe Crown Prince re-
ceived the imperial party at the entrance to
the harbor. Their landing was delayed lor
two hours owing to the-condition of the
Empress. After landingthepartytookatrain
for Athens, where they were received by the
Greek Minister and resident diplomats.
They then drove to the palace in state car
PLENTY OF JEWELS.
Princess Sophie's already marvelous
jewel dower has been enhanced by her
mother adding a diamond and ruby cross,
an heirloom in the English royal family
which was first worn by Princess Charlotte
of Wales. Queen Victoria's presents do
not figure prominently. They consist of
the usual Indian shawls, whereof she
seems to have a ready store, a set of Hou
itnn lace, a narrow diamond necklace and a
number of books. In contrast is King
Humbert's present, sent through the Prince
of Naples. It consists of a splendid parure
of diamonds, valued at 400,000 marks.
Prince Bismarck's earliest return to Ber
lin will be on Thursday. It is improbable
that the Reichstag debates will demand his
presence till the socialist law is discussed.
Count Herbert, before starting, went to
Friedrichsruhe, accompanied by the
Turkish Minister, Kiamil Pasha", who
wanted memoranda to prepare the Sultan
to talk with the German Emperor. Bis
marck gave Kiamil long conferences, but
refused him written memoranda. He also
advised Kiamil that the interviews between
the Sultan and Emperor William must not
proceed through an interpreter unless he be
a member of the Sultan's council.
THE SOCIALIST TROUBLES.
The alteration of the socialist law is not
approved by any section of the Beichstag
excepting the Conservatives. The Nationals
and Centreists disfavor the permanent dura
tion of the law as depriving the House of
its present controlling power .to amend the
law every two years. In order to sweeten
the Droposal the Government modifies some
of its strictest provisions.
Thus, a newspaper, now suppressed for
one offensive article, will be stopped after
two offenses. The power of the police to
cancel the licenses ot taverns frequented by
Socialists is abolished. Further, a meeting
does not require previous police' sanction,
though it will remain liable to closure.
It is probable that the majority will reject
the permanent bill, and that a substitute of
five years' duration will be passed. The
Progressists made a motion that a newspa
per illegally suppressed have the right to
obtain damages if the suppression should be
canceled. There is small chance of its ac
ceptance. The Socialists moved for the
abolition of duties on all provisions.
THE TARIFF AN ISSUE.
Thoueh there is abundant proof of the
terrible pressure on tbe poor caused by the
existing tariffs, it is improbable that the
Beichstag will grant relief, though it is cer
tain the food question will be a prominent
factor in the coining election. A section ot
the National Liberals support the progress
ist demand for the abolition of the pork
duties. The Progressists also moved an
amendment to the electoral law, aiming to
render difficult electoral frauds and unjust
pressure upon electors. -This will not be
adopted. The Conservatives and National
Liberals proless to be indignant at the bare
suspicion that electoral irauds are possible.
The National Zeitung, referring to the
demand of the Progressists that voting
tickets be delivered in closed envelopes,
advises the majority to refuse to even dis
cuss this and .similar motions.
Freytag's book has created a sensation.
Prince Bismarck, jxioz to its publication,
advised the suppression of certain passages
referring to the private negotiations over the
formation or the Empire. Herr Freytag de
clined to suppress tbe passages. The Chan
cell or did not insist.
BISMARCK'S REAL REASON.
The complaisance, of Bismarck is at
tributed to Freytag's disclosures ot the un
wise interference of 'the then Empress, who.
the book declares, guided when it was nat-
Lnral she ought to be guided, thus causine;J

grateful to Bismarck describes the late Em
peror Frederick as afflicted with' morbid
moods, and old in mind and body long be
fore his fatal disease attacked him. His vital
energy, the book declares, was no longer be
fitting the heir to the Imperial crown. The
persuasions of the Crown Princess were un
able to banish this sadness. He often
thought to abdicate in favor of his son.

GABRIEL'S TRUMP MUST BLOW.
A Man Who Soonded It 46 Tears Abo to Do
So Again To-Morrow.
ISrXCTU, TILEQEJIM TO THE D1SFATCU.1
Bridgeport, Conk., October 26. Of
the 40,000 Second Adventists iu this coun
try, a large number reside in this city.
Their leaders had fixed on Friday,
October 25, as the day on which the
termination of all things terrestrial should
take place, but as the dusty old
ball continued to revolve just tbe same, a
few have set their minds on next Mondav as
the date. Forty-six years ago this
month, the predecessors of the ex
isting Adventists were positive that
the end wonld come at noon on
October 23, and according to the testimony
of persons now living, they assembled in
robes of white on the lot now occupied by
Henry Atwater, of Clinton avenue, where
they waited for Gabriel's horn to blow. The
sup shone out brightly and passed the'mer-
laian, out uaDriei lailea to appear.
About ten minutes after 12 o'clock some
thing in white flowing garments and blow
ing a tin horn came in sight and drew near
the group. At first they believed the ob
ject to be a pioneer of the angelic host come
to announce that the bottom of all crea
tion had fallen out, but it proved to be
Colonel O. B. Hall, who tooted loudly,
flaunted the folds of his robe, and so
ridiculed the gronp that they got mad and
immediately postponed the event which
they had gathered to see. For 46 years there
has been no occaaion for Colonel Hall to re
peat bis exploit, but as he is alive and
will be able to blow the horn again, it is
proposed that he do so on Monday next.
-A HORSE-THIEF WITNESS.
Sensational Testimony Materially Injured by
the Witness' Bad Record.
WiLtlAMSPORT, October 26. In the
judgeship contest the contestants placed
upon the stand Boyd Bichard, a Morel and
township voter, who had been previ
ously called by the respondent The wit
ness stated that he could not read or write,
but he believed that he had paid the neces
sary tax to entitle him to vote at
the election in 1888, as he had
shown his receipt to two friends, who in
formed him tfaat'he was all right The wit
ness stated that after he -had been
examined on the part of the re
spondent he had gone to Judge Metzger,
and informed that official that his tax
had been paid, which would legalize his
vote. Upon being questioned further the
witness said that Judge Metzger told him
that he had better not testify to anything of
that kind, as he might get himself into
trouble, as he (Metzger) didn't intend to
lose the case. This testimony created some
thing of a sensation.
Counsel for the respondent then took
charge of the witness for cross-examination,
first introducing the conrt records to prove
that the witness had been held for horse
stealing, and that he only escaped punish
ment by forfeiting his bail. The witness
admitted this fact and was permitted to de
part. Tbe object of the cross-examination
was toshow the unsavory record of the wit
ness and attack the truth of his statement
Witnesses may be called to prove that his
reputation for veracity is bad.

Washington, October 26. White
House affairs have been very quiet the
past week, the rat hunt being about the
only excitement going. For the most part
the weather has been good, and the Presi
dent and Mrs. Harrison have enjoyed daily
drives. A few changes are being made in
domestic arrangements. The pleasant front
room where President Cleveland slept, and
which has been occupied by Mr. Halford, is
being put in order for Mrs. McKee and her
children, who will return to the city soon.
Mrs. Harrison had planned to visit Mrs.
"Wanamaker, in Philadelphia, this week,
but her household duties did not permit
her to leave home. She selected from sam
ples a new carpet for the red
corridor, and also a new floor
covering for the red parlor, which was
last fitted up by General Arthur. The red
corridor will be ''again laid in red, of the
same shade that has always distinguished
it, but the carpet in the red parlor will be
A CHANGE IN COLOE
from the present one, as one of the pretty
shades qf terra cotta has been cnosen for it.
The red color ot the corridor carpet recom
mends itself particularly because It does
not show footprints in its soft texture. The
carpets all over the house are being put
down, and soon the Executive Mansion will
have the heavy curtains at the windows, and
the usual appearance that is familiar to the
winter guests of the place. Mrs. Harrison
has spent her leisure hours in tbe past week
putting the finishing touches to some pretty
porcelains that have been fired, and are
receiving tne nnal colorings. A small
white ornamental dish has a bunch
of strawberries that have all the
luscious sweetness and blush ot the fruit

ments that the majority of Washington peo
ple did not dream that the honse required
will have been made upon the Whitney
house by the date named above. A furnace,
that will heat the upper chambers of the
house, is being put in, and the floors are
being laid with hardwood, and elaborate
decorations and hangings are being put
upon tbe walls. Some of the walls have
been covered with rich, warm plush. The

Vice President Morton expects to take
possession of his residence in Scott Circle
the early part of next month. He pur
chased the propertv from Mr. Alexander
i. Graham Bali last spring, since when it has
been practically in tbe bands ot tne work
men. The most notable change that has
been made is tbe extension of tbe dining
room. An addition has been built on the
east side of the house, extending all
the way back and joining the stable. All
this space is given up to the dining room,
which is a noble room, 35 feet deep and 25
feet broad. Its lofty ceiling is finished in
oak, and the entire room is enriched with
tbis wood. At each, end are splendid fire
places, with great mantels. One of the
mantels is 11 feet high, and contains a large
glass. This is said to be the largest private
dining room in tbe city, and it will accom
modate as large a dinner party as even the
Vice President would care to give. The
only other improvement made in the honse,
of any consequence, is the decoration of the
walls, which has been done in the-modern
style and with elegant effect.

had threatened to blow the brains out of
anyone who betrayed him.
Jnstice Bartlett did not think the proof
offered was sufficient, and he adjourned the
hearing. The second wife refused to appear
as a witness, and she- says she will marry
Livingston again when his term expires.

New York, October 26. A ' circular
tent to all the stockholders of the Fifth
Avenue Transportation Company, Limited,
the legal title of the Fifth Avenue Stage
Line, by Secritary "William Irwin, of the
company, attracted attention to
day. Mr. Irwin starts the
document with the announcement
that the preamble and resolutions contained
in the circular were, adopted at a meeting
of the Board of Directors of the company,
held on October 18. Tne circnlar
then proceeds to relate the reasons
for calling for an assessment of 95 percent
on the par value of tlw stock. The stock
holders who received the circular were very,
indignant at the proposed assessment The
par value of the shares is $25.
All of these stockholders held an in
formal meeting in Barnes Brothers' office,
this afternoon, for the purpose of arrang
ing to resist tbe payment of tbe assessment,
and to fieht it out with Colonel Elliott
F. Shepard at the annual meeting of the
directors, to be held November 19. AIL
these stockholders openly assert that the
present condition of tbe company was due
entirely to tbe mismanagement of Colonel
Shepard, and to his desire so to depress the
valne of the shares as to be able to secure
permanent control of the company. They
were equally positive that Colonel Shepard
had been worting on this plan for several
