Twenty New Cases of Cholera in Germany Rich Farmer Murdered. 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 France. 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. Yokohoma, Oct. 8. The Oerman warships which had assembled here, bave been erdered to proceed to ports in northern China. Th Ulnaaa of the Csar. Vienna, Oot 8. The Politisohe Cor respondenz is informed by its St. Pe tersburg aorrespondent that the Czar's condition is not sneh as to occasion alarm. The secretion of albuminous matter by the kidneys has not exceeded 1 per cent daring the last six weeks, but has varied between and 1 per cent., wbieb is very low. It is likely to be reduced by the present treat ment. London, Oot. 3. The Berlin corres pondent of the Times says that the czar will continue to occupy himself with indispensable state affairs. Paris, Oot 3 A despatch received here from St Petersburg says that the marriage, of the Tsesareviteb to Prin cess Alix, of Hesse, has been again postponed, this time on aceonnt of the illness of the czar. It is now expected that the marriage will not take plaoe intil next Jane. Atteoked by Armenian. St, Petersburg, Oet 3. News has 1.

Colonel Jacques and Bowell Tbomas, a former solioitor now undergoing a term of penal servitude. irere again charged on remand today it Bow street police court, before Sir Jobs Bridge, with conspiring to de fraud various persons in . connection with the claim to the Townley estates. William Enoch French of Evansville, Indiana, who was brought especially DARKENING from America to give testimony in the case, said that Colonel Jacques per suaded bim to take Townley bonds to the amount of $25,000 He testified that several of his friends took similar bonds, at their face value, to the amount of (100,000.

Oct. 3 A despatch received here from Vilna, Russia, tells of an outrage upon the part of a number of robbers. A neb farmer reamed in tne town ot Gibaniszki, near Vilna, with bis wife, three children, and four ser vants. He was believed to be in the habit of keeping a considerable sum of money in the house, and this becoming known to a gang of robbers, tbey at tacked the house, killed him, bis wife, children, and servants, completely looted the house, and escaped with their booty. Evlo;4 Tenacts' Seven?. London, Oot. 3.

Professor Charles E. Hile and Party Return from a Visit at Labrador. 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 land abounding with gams and the waters teeming with trout and salmon. Winter bad already set in when the party left here early in September and from the 1st to the Cth of the month they were enow-bound by a fierce storm. TYPE SETTING BY MACHINES. . 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 upon. 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 the craft to be deliberate, accepting the inevitable and securing the very best terms possible.

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 1 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. . LIST OF KILLED AND INJURED. 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.

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. FREAKS OF TITS STORM. 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. STILL A MYSTERY. The Guee i ion as to Whether 6natoHlll Will Bun I Unsolved. Albany, N.

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. vention. "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 special train and started tor New York. ORIOLES nOXORED. Wind up of th Baa Ball Jollification at Baltimore.
