Anantarivo, Madagascar, Oct 8.
O BLOCKADE of tbe ports of the
A Itlund of Madagascar has been
proclaimed by France. Tlie
ITU resident-general has gone to
Tanatave. He has beeu instructed to
take measures to protect the eolonists
in the event of war.
All the afternoon newspapers gravely
discuss the hasty summoning of a ca
binet council, and it is generally ac
cepted as being connected with some
Bcrious difficulty with France. The
Liberal organ, the "Westtnlnter Ga
zette," handles the subject very tender
ly, and is evidently aaxions not to
excite pnblie opinion sud thereby em
barrass the government On the other
band, the Conservative mouthpieces
discus the matter more fearlessly, and
warn France against encroaching upon
British rights.
The dispute between England and
France in regard to Madagascar is one
of long standing. Madagascar is a
large island, separated from ths south
eastern portion of Africa by the Mo
zambique channel. It is now, virtu
ally, under a French protectorate, al
though it is claimed in England that
at least one-seventh of the isle - is held
by British capital. Bat the French
embassy in Loudon recently answered
a communication from the Madagas
car consul in Londou by a formal state
ment that, officially, there is no longer
such person as a London Madagascar
consul, as, it was added, the agents of
France in various countries represent
the Hovas government, .
Early last month the French gov
ernment evidently determined upon
taking decided action in regard to
Madagascar, probably believing that
the bands of England were tied by the
complications bronght about 'throngh
the war between China and Japan,
Consequently M. le Myre de Vilers was
sent on a special mission to Madagas
car, and it was understood that he was
to all intents and purposes instructed
to demand the abdication ot the gov
ernment and to annex the island to
The Japan! Eav Landed.
Shanghai, Oct. 3 The governor of
Eirin, Manobnria, reports that the Jap
anese have effeoted a landing in the
rear of Lan Chan. The whole province
is in a state of consternation; but
measures for its defence aro being
taken. Another heavy levy bas been
made upon the Chinese merchants in
order to meet the expenses of the war.
The native papers confirm the report
exclusively cabled to the Associated
Press yesterday, that 5.000 Japanese
troops have landed in the northeastern
part of Cores. The Europeans who
were wounded in the battle fougbt off
the Tala river are all doinsr well.
It is reported that the Chinese sol
diers who retreated from Ping Yang
have taken up a position at Ngau
where they have beeu joined by troops
which were landed on the banks of the
Ylu river, and by others from Shin
King. This force is reported to be en
trenching itself thoroughly, and it is
now thought probable that the result
of the war will be decided in the battle
which, it is expeoted, mast be fought
at Ngan.
The Chinese authorities of this city
attempted to arrest a Japanese traveler
from Manchuria on bis arrival here
from Tientsin. They claim they were
justified, as he was suspeoted of being
a spy. A police informer took oharge
of the man and handed bim over to the
Americun consul.

Philadelphia. Oct. 3. Charles E.
Hile, professor of taxidermy and
ornithology at the University of Penn
sylvania, with Howard Bucknell, G.
Perkins and (i. M. (Joates, re
turned today from their two
months of explorations ' at Labra
dor. The. results of the explorations
were very satisfactory, and they bave
brought buolc with them a large botan
ical, ornithological and natural history
collection, iueluding the remains of
several mammals.
Professor Mils thinks he has speci
mens of two birds of a hitherto un
known . genas and four or, five new
kinds of buttej flies, but be cannot be
certain until-he. Jias had an oppor
tunity to examine the specimens more
thoroughly. ' Professor Hile said that
tney made a Thorough exploration of
the shores of Sandwich bay and the
country inland to the distance of
twenty -five miles. The party asconded
the great Beaver river 190 miles and
fonnd it navigafile to a distanco of 05
miles, where further progress to large
boats is barred by a fall 65 feet high.
They also ascended two other small
rivers a distance of twonty and forty
miles, respectively, One was broad
and shallow and tilled with rnpids and
the other wus narrow and swift
According to Professor Hite, Labra
dor Is unfitted for agriculture, the soil
being rocky and sterile, but a short
distance bade from the coast the coun
try is heavily timbered with tomaroo
and birch. Extensive deposits of iron
ore were found, bnt owing to the short
ness of the mud season and tne severity
of the winters the deposits cannot be
worked on a paying basis. The const
of Labrador is dotted with fishermen's
bnts and a few small settlements.
Professor Hits estimates the popula
tion at 25.000 and fishing is the only
Industry, The people are mostly Eng
lish, Irish and bcotch and Professor
Hite says that their morals are the
worst of any people he has ever met.
Professor Hite says Labrador is the
paradise of hunters and fishermen, the

waters teeming with trout and salmon.

What President of International Union
Say of Them.
Chicaoo, Oct. 8 Next Monday the
forty-second annual convention of the
International Typographical union
will open at Louisville, Kv. It will be
the largest convention in the history ot
this noted trade organization, dele
gates having been eleoted from every
district in the United States and the
Canadas, The deliberations of the
congress, moreover, will be of unpre
cedented importance, from the fact
that the effect of the rapid adoption of
type-setting machines and other mat
ters of vital interest to the fraternity
will be considered at length and acted
From an advance proof ot the an
nual report of President W. B. Pres-
cott, of Indianapolis, which will be
presented on the opening day of the
convention, it is learned that the ad
dress deals at length with a soore of
questions affecting the fraternity, and
incidentally of interest to the world of
trade unionism at large. Touching
upon "Machines and their effeot," Presi
dent Prescott will say :
"True to the history and ethics of trade
unionism, we bave not antagonized their
introduction, but have, with some rel ins
tance, it may be, readily formulated scales
ana euterea into agreements suitable to
the changed conditions. Many new ques
tions have and will ariso to harass
and aggravate u, and iu dealing witb
them it will benefit us and the -future of

OOO Scenes and Incidents of the
Little Bock, Ark., Oot. 8.
EWS from the Arkansas State In
sane asylum at an eary hour this
morning confirmed the first re
ports concerning the damage done
that institntion by tbe tornado which
caused devastation and death in this
oity last evening. All tbe male de
partment and annex was razed to tbe
ground, four floors falling in a mass.
Dr. Ingate, formerly of Mobile, Ala.,
and two patients were instantly killed,
and four other patients were seriously
and perhaps fatally injured.
The destruction in tbe residence part
of tbe city in the vicinity of the peni
tentiary is very greet, btate Senator
Vest's daughter, who lives In that
neighborhood, was injured by a falling
roof. The bouse was blown down and
everything destroyed.- The other oc
cupants escaped serious injury. State
Engineer Eggleston's house, in the
same neighborhood, was unroofed.
Thomas Warner's house was demolish
ed, and a two-story tenement on West
Third street, near tbe penitenti
ary, and Peter English's two-
story bouse were wrecked. The
Dibrell house, one of the oldest
bnildings in the city, located at Mark
ham street and Broadway, was de
molished. Young's grocery was un
roofed, and a boarding bouse at Second
street and Broadway was blown down,
but no one there was injured. Tbe
Presbyterian church at Fourth and
State streets was unroofed. Abraham
Olloneimer's residence was wrecked.
The damage to residence property Jn
the west end will exceed 50,OUO. The
name of the convict killed at tbe peni
tentiary is (irimn. . T wo guards, fcimth
and Witt are badly injured and seven
trusty prisoners were seriously hurt.
Tne property loss to the state there is
$20,000. .
The list ot killed as far as can be
learned is as follows:
Dr. J. T. legate, Mobile, Ala.
Two insane asylum patients.
The convict, Griffin.
Jack Boyd and baby, colored, killed in
the Wahrfritz bnilding.
Joseph Holloway, colored, killed in the
Little Rock bakery.
The injured are:
State Representative Elect C. T. Monroe.
probably fatally.
John 'Eaton, an employe at the Martin
block, fatally hurt.
captain a. u. smith, hurt on toe bead.
Mrs. Jan ko, fatally injured.
Fritz Reis, soriocsly injured.
John Fouterouwez, fatally injured.
James Swift, injured in the head.
Guards Smith and Witt, badly injured.
Several children were covered with
debris in tbe ruins of the St Charles
Hotel, but they have all been account
ed for. The bell over the Torrent en-
cine house, weighing 700 ponnds. fell
into tbe street and demolished tbe en
cine bouse.
Tbe worst effects of the storm are to
be seen at tbe insane asylnm, which is
three miles west of the business center
of the city. The entire south balf of
the main bauding was demol
ished. The tower fell through Super
intendent Robertson's rooms, burying
Dr. ingate in tbe ruins. Mrs Koborts
esoaped with slight injuries. All but
twenty of tbe inmates bave been dis
covered. Many were found down town
and plnoed in jail, and some, it is
feared, are buried in the rains. Dr.
Insate's body will probably not be re
covered until this evening, as it is
buried under a heavy mass of mortar
and timbers. Tbe loss to the asylum
will reach $150,000.
Many peculiar freaks of the storm
are reported. A large sheet-iron stand
pipe, four stories high, which stood in
tbe rear of Gleasoa's hotel, was struck
by lightning and fell to the ground.
Every iron rivet in the pipe was cut
and it was unrolled. R. H. Batsman,
who rooms in the third story of tbe
Allls blook, bad a thrilling ex
perienee. He was sitting in bis
room near tbe window read
ing, when suddenly a fonr-by-six scant
ling, twenty-five feet in length, crashed
through tbe window, just above his
bead, and made a bole in tbe opposite
wail, passing almost throngh into the
next room. He was uninjured.
Tbe damage caused by the tornado
will undoubtedly reaoh the first esti
mates at $1,000,000.

Corbett communicated this informa
tion to a prominent sporting man this
afternoon, who said: "Corbett will

I deplore bis action in meeting a mid

Mr. Morton Deputed by the Republican
convention which recently assembled at
Saratoga, we visit your home today to
tender to you in the presence of yonr fam
ily the nomination for the high office of
governor of the commonwealth. This is
but the formal notification of a fact which
bas for months past been anticipated by
tbe people, and the consummation or wuicn
had been received oy tnem witn entnusi
asm aud sincere gratification.
"Comrade Saxton: To you, sir, we are
instructed to tender the Kepupblican nom
ination tor the important office of lieuten
ant governor. After a friendly, but earn
est contest, in which many of tbe brightest
intellects in tbe state were your rivals, you
became the unanimous choice ot the con.
"To you, Judce Haight comes very
cronerlv that promotion to a higher ju
dicial sphere, which of right belongs to tbe
experienced and upright jndge. It is a
strong argument in favor of an elective
judiciary when we are admonished that
the electors win not tolerate a canamacy
for tbe Bench which is not absolutely free
of taint; whereas it sometimes happens,
where the appointing power is conferred
upon the executive, that the purest life
does not escape calumny or avow rejection
bv tbe senate. I may, therefore, say that
the nomination tor judge of the court of
appeals is tendered you witb positive
kuowlodge that your character is without
blemish or reproach.
Messrs. Morton, Saxton and Height
responded briefly.
At 4 o'clock the party boarded the
