Special Correspondence of The Tribune.
ljundon, Dec. 14. Tho cowardly mur
derer Read, whose trial elicited such
extraordinary evidence, has been nuns
fit last, thank goodness, and we are at
lust spared all the sickening details of
"Heed in jail," Head's letters" and
Jiead's this and that. The evening
papers have almost made a hero of the
brute and "Head" has stared us In the
face from every newspaper poster in
the city. Even today while the nils
enable wretch's better part Is talcing
knowledge of eternity, we are con
fronted with "Read's will!" But a
murder of a different nature now at
tracts attention. A woman, it will be
remembered, was found dead outside
on artist's house in the Holland park
road, a quiet and beautiful vicinity
where painters congregate. Some days
lifter the tragedy tt foreign artist came
forward and stated that he witnessed
the crime. He Baw the man and woman
in violent altercation and fearing vio
lence hid not twelve yards away, when
the man pressed his knee Into the
woman's stomach and struck her In
the throat; lie called out and the as
nassln made oft and the artist started
In pursuit, but eventually lost sight of
the man. The police lost no time and
Londoners were surprised to learn that
a young Irishman, Reginald Saunder
son by name, had been arrested at
Armugh, in Ireland. There seems little
doubt that the unfortunate young man
committed the outrage, and it is stated
that he Is not responsible for his ac
tions. His father Is u much respected
Justice of the peace in Ireland, his
mother Is a daughter of tho Karl of
Olonmell, and he has four brothers and
fuur Issters. Tho Read case appears
to have excited a morbid Influence over
him, and on the evening in question he
carried a cherry wood walking stick,
which he left beside the woman's body
In Kensington, and which has since
been identified. It appears that on
leaving London he borrowed some
money of an old school-fellow and made
his way to the house of his uncle,. Col
onel Saunderson, the well known and
vigorous Irish Conservative M. P. The
man is evidently mad and altogether It
Is a painful affair. The residents of
Kensington are very perturbed what
with one thing and another, for there
Js a small Individual believed to be a
man In woman's dress and whose Iden
tity cannot be established, going about
find asking women the direction to a
certain place and then stabbing them
in the face with a small knife. One
woman has already lost an eye and an
other has an ugly cut on the cheek.
The Prince of Wales and his son, the
luke of York, have returned 'to town
nnd rtcelved a most 'hearty welcome.
They are looking well, and on the even
ing of itheilr arrival 'they went on a
visit to 'the Queen at Windsor and
dined there. An Interesting feature of
their visit is the fact that within the
cantle walls there were four genera
tions of ithe British royal family In di
rect line to the throne, namely: Ma.
Teddy, of Wales; Georgle, of York; and
baby Edward. This Is, I believe, an
unique record, and one not at all likely
to be smashed for some time.
Most of the "big-pots" of society will
cither be away in lands afar or in -their
country houses ithls Xmas time, In fact,
"aassieity" is yawning over the not over
brilliant promise of the New Year sea
eon. The absence of the Princess of
Wales ihas a latito do with this apathy,
and people are commencing to loam
hat Princess May Is a family bird, a
Iblrd 'that ovea her nest, 1. e. home.
She lsfiot fond of publicity, but ia fond
of George and her baby. This infant Is
already attracting attention and pic
tures of ihls "first carriage" have ap
peared In aeveral papers. It does not
differ from most other "first carriages"
nuomuch 'that 'it 'Is not drawn 'by gee
gees or white donkeys; it's just fine of
those affairs ithait suburban pa's Wheel
the kids around in of a Sunday whilst
ma makes th'e pudding, only In this
instance it Is not believed that Daddy
Will lo any wheeling.
A strange "copyright" performance
itook place on Dec. 3. The name of
ithe piece is the "Mahdi" and it is by
Hall Calne, the author of the "Manx
man." Mr. Hall Calne himself a.nd
Zangwill took parts, as did Mr. Helne
mann, the publisher, and a capable
dramatic critic. The first act went ull
right and 'then Zangwill acted all the
parts for the rest of the performance.
The whole affair was a regular farce
mid shows up the absurd laws of dra
matic copyright. Still 'the one or two
listeners saw and heard enough to tell
tts that we "have ihere a powerful and
dramatic play. Which should still f untli
er enhance Mr, Cable's reputation.
The production of "The Oontraban
iflista, or the Law. of the Ladrones" on
Monday next attracts unique interest
owing to its having appeared in ab
breviated form no less than twerty-
eeven years ago! It was at that time
a short comic opera, In which an Eng.
Ilah tourist fell In with a band of
fipaniah brigands and was compelled
by an ancient law to become chieftain
of these lawless folk and also to marry
Ills predecessor's widow. Burnand has
polished up his talkey and Jokelets
and Sullivan has added considerably
to the lyrics. Included in the cast will
be Florence St. John, Roaina Brand
ram, Scott. Flshe, Richard Temple and
A nurse of the name of Chaston ha3
unsuccessfully brought a strange ac
tion for damages against Henry Irving.
A chair in which she was seated at the
Lyceum theater broke down and she
claimed that the fall brought on an old
illness. The case resulted in a verdict
for the defendant.
A terrible fatality Is reported from
Belfast but alas! it is the old tale a
performance was being held and the
audience consisted chiefly of children
and gome fool put the lights out prob
ably some thoughtless boy and the na
tural consequence was a mad rush,
screams for help and several little
one3 crushed to death. The usual
heartrending; after scenes occurred and
mothers came to fetch their children
and returned with only their poor life
less little bodies!
Frank Slavln, the boxer Is off to
Africa, and before departing he was
accorded the customary benefit. Frank
Improved the occasion by knocking Bob
Marshall (whoever he may be!) out of
time in two rounds. Slavln does not
bear the best of names hre and sports
are not very grlef-strlcken at his de
parture. James Lowther, M. P., was the prin
cipal speaker at the "Glmcrack" dinner
this year. The "Gimorack" Is the fin
est thing In dinners of the turf year,
and is an annual offence. Mr. Lowther
Is another of our legislators who does
not object to owning and racing horses,
and it was during his connection with
the Beaconslleld ministry that he won
the "Glmcrack" stakes with King Olaf.
One of his horses. King Monmouth,
won 11,000. Mr. Spencer has an article
on "touts" In this month's Rally's
Magazine, which Is very Interesting.
Ho mentions that at the time of the
American liorse Iroquois' Derby trial,
a tout hung about the' stable for three
days and nights and eventually wit
nessed the spin. Iroquois had another
watcher however. As the string crossed
the heath, a clergyman was noticed
busily hunting for specimens. This
clerical gemt was in reality a tout, and
It was he that was the first to send
away the result of the great trial. Mr.
Sptncer notes that the touts make a
good income and generally look more
like aldermen with "coharporatlons"
I have before remarked that Lon
doners are a long time taking to new
Ideas and Improvements of any sort,
but the underground electric railway
Is now an established thing, and elec
tric railways are now going to be run
to various suburbs. The travelling is
not nearly so pleasant as an overlaid
railway, but Is much better than the
stuffy steam underground railways. I
took a few young American college
friends for an "experience" ride In tho
last named once. They, however, were
not at all grateful and got out at the
next station and "guessed they'd walk
the rest!" "But," said I, "the experi
ence, boys?" And they only answered
"We've had it!" .
Some enthusiastic Idiots, with a cap
ital "I," have got up a "navy" fund
the object being to buy ships of war
for the realm. Bosh! We pay our rates
and expect the government to provide
the same as required. It is necessary
for England to maintain her prestago
at sea, and England must pay for It,
but a private fund is an Insult to the
nation. As regards the weather, it's
well, it's "raining in London!"
The HoJy of an Italian Laborer Is Found
in the Canal.
By the United Press.
Trenton, Dec. 23. Ferdlnando Conlo,
an Italian railroad laborer who lived In
Fallsington, Pa., disappeared myete-
slously on Nov. 1C. Yesterday Uie
water was let out of the Delaware divi
sion canal for the winter and his body
was found at the bottom In the borough
of Morrisville, about three miles from
Fallsington, There was a stab wound
his heart and his neck was dislo
cated. Bruises on his head und body
ere also found, but they, it is thought.
had been inflicted by passing boats and
other objects in the water.
Condo spent the night before his dis
appearance drinking with an Italian
friend named Frank Bogarro, und the
latter is now being searched for In
Trenton by the local police. Marks
that are taken for blood stains were
found in one of Iiagarro's rooms. Frank
Morelll, who was last seen-with the
dead man, is under arrest as a witness.

By the United Press.
Trenton, N. J., Dee. 25. A suit was
begun In the court of chancery today
to recover $3,000 and interest given
to the "Pennington Academy" by Abl

Great Pamngo to Surrounding Country
from Dcstructon of a Dyke.
By tho United Press.
Berlin, Dec. 25. During the pre
valence of the gale In Oermany the
dyke at Hamburg broke and a large
area of land was submerged. Many
streets In Geestemunde and Altona
were Inundated, and In Hamburg, the
Hamburger Hof, on the Alster-Bassln
and the quays surrounding that sheet
of water were greatly damaged.
The water Is now being pumped ou
by fire engines. The damage to tho
docks will, it Is estimated, reach at
least 2,000,000 marks.

The Lehigh and Wllkos-Ilarro Coal com
pany has posted notices informing their
rM stripping miners that ull work of
this kind would be suspended for the win
tor. Tho miners have worked but
,Wd months during the past season
he suspension ut this time will greatly
distress the men.
Kxeltemont continues In Monroe county
over the iind or coal. Tho pluee where
he coal was discovered is on the farm of
Daniel Kindt, in Ross township, about a
mile and a half from Saylorshurg. The
haft has been sunk to a depth of over
twenty feet and fine specimens of beach
diamond coal have been found.
Shenandoah advices are to the effect
that the effort of the United Mine Work-
rs to gain a foothold In the anthracite
region Is not regarded hopefully In that
portion of Schuylkill county. When the
national convention of United Mine
Workers meets in February tho delegates
are likely to discover, it Is said, that
District No. 1, comprising the anthracite
counties of Pennsylvania, has but a
shadow of existence outside tho Imagina
tion of tho organizers. The membership
of the organization now does not com
prise 2,nu0 of 11S.O0O men employed in the
anthracite coal mines.
A Chicago dispatch says: It rests solely
with the Interstate commerce commission
whether or not nll-rull lines will compete
with lake lines on through grain and Hour
trallic. If the commission allows the
roads to make competing rates on exclu
sively through business, while holding
up rates to intermediate' points, tlvro
will be un active competition next year as
soon as navigation opens. The rail rate
will not be higher than 12 cents, and possl.
Ily not higher than 10 cents per hundred
against the present rate of 25 cents. Su'ih
reduction will be based solely on tho
fact that tho business taken on the re.
duced rate will be extra, and therefore
can be taken at a rate, which, if uppllcd
to all commodities, would bankrupt the
In tho Philadelphia Stockholder yester
day appeared an elaborate review of the
present fight upon the ofllcers of the Le
high Valley Jiallroad company a fight
generally conceded, however, to be utterly
without hope of success. After citing tho
conditions way back In Asa Packer's
time which made necessmry the Lehigh
Valley's extension to Buffalo, an exten
slon naturally involving great expense,
the Stockholder article continues: "The
main factor Instrumental in necessitatis
tho suspension of dividends was the con
dltion of the anthracite trade. While the
tonnage in the last six years Increased
2,i!ii,Sol tons, tho loss In revenue amounted
to $l,22Ti,IS'j. The explanation of thin. Is
simple. In 1SSS the company received ,1
of u cent per net ton per mile, while in 1CII3
It received only .82ii of a cent, a decrease
of .155 of a cent, In other words, while
the tons carried one mile Increused be
tween 4 nnd 6 per cent., the resultant rove
line decretised nearly 12 per cent. This
was not the fault of the nmnugemenl;
it was due to existing conditions, ovar
which they had little, If any, control
Competition had to bo met. both at to
price of coal and rates of freight. Ther
is no question that tho situation at the
time was the greatest factor that Induced
the Lehigh Valley management to n;;icn
to the leaso of tho property to the Bead
lug. Who can tell what tho consequences
wonld have been but for that lease? The
outlook was a very promising one; well-
informed persons regarded the deal with
favor; and the Lehigh Valley stockhoid
ers at their following nunual meeting i
proved of the action of their board of di
rectors in arranging the lease. That the
hopet' or nil were not realized was no
fault of President Wilbur and his 'ho
elates: they had nothing whatever to do
with the crash which camo with start
ling suddenness. The dissolution was
made at a very unfortunate time; tlv
business or me country , was In a par
alyzed condition; we wore passim?
through a panic such os had never been
before experienced In the United States.
All classes cf trade were affected; and, to
make matters worse, tho anthracite 'oa
market was extremely dull. . In fact, u:
no time since the appointment of receiv
ers for the Heading companies has the
anthracite coal trade been In even
temporarily healthy condition. The dam
age done by this demoralization Is Incut
culable. It Is estlmted that It has cost
'.ho vnrlous companies the past year
least &!5,0u0,0i0, and this, It Is believed, is
a conservative estimate. This fact n'ono
should explain tho failure of the Ln
high Valley to resume dividends sin
their ruspeiiBlon in lil'J'J. But In addition
to tho losses sustained from this the
principal source of the company's In
come Is the general business depression,
which be;?un early In lN'.W, and which h
continued ever since, though now showlni)
signs of Improvement, Of nimost equal
Importance Is the passenger and freiivlit
rate situation. In issti the Lehigh Val
le.f received .801 of a cent per net mil)
per ton on Hs miscellaneous freight trnf
lle; In 1893 tho average was .IVI8 of a cent
tin lowest ever known, nnd a decroa)
compared with that received In 1SK8 of .'M
of a cont. On the surface, and to the un
informed, the loss is not great, but hid
the IStiS rate b on received in MSI the
company could lave pal l dividends and
had a surplus In uddltlon notwithstanding
tho unfavorable elements 1 reforred to
above. It must be admitted, In Justice,
that the Lehigh Valley mai.agement caul 1
not control the general rate situation, and
it was, therefore, powerles.t to prevent
the loss which Ihe company sustained
through Ihe steady decline in rate
There were also other factors which com
bined against the compnny's finances, in
culding the strike on Its own lino in No
vember, 1X93, which cost the company
nearly $t,0U0,U00; the floods and bituminous
coal and coke strlko In the spring of last
year, and, finally, the great railroad
strike In the west last summer. But
those were only minor incidents,"

Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons that thev will this yuar hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers aro
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully thrtu
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
