By the United Press. .
Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 20. Following
close on the Christmas festivities at the
penitentiary came one of the most
shocking tragedies this morning that
has ever occurred at the Institution.
One prisoner is dead, another wounded,
bud a guard seriously Injured.
The affair occurred today about 10 a.
m. at Reynolds foundry and appears to
have been the result of lack of dis
cipline In the prison. Sub guards have'
generally been on duty there and the
convicts have been In the habit of tak
ing undue liberties. Recently Warden
James determined to put a stop to this
and placed A. J. Temple, of Columbus
county, one of the strictest guards in
the institution, in this shop. The pris
oners did not like Temple, and Informa
tion was conveyed to him that three of
them had been making threats against
lilm. These were Joseph O'Day, a two
year forger from Cleveland; John
Hurke, a Lorain county robber; and
John Bird, In for manslaughter from
Franklin county. Temple reported
these three for making threats. Hear
ing of this, the trio lay In wait for him
this morning in the foundry. Burke
seized him around the neck, while
O'Day struck him over the head with
an iron bah Guards Fulton and-Butler
rushed to Temple's asslstance.whlle
the other prisoners in the shop flocked
to the scene.
Dazed by the blow, Te-mple vainly at
tempted to pull his revolver, which he
granped, but was prevented from get
ting it out by his assailants. O'Day
shouted to Reuben Gardner, a Wood
county prisoner, in for manslaughter:
"Bring me a knife, and I'll cut his hand
off, or cut his throat."
Temple managed to shoot through his
pocket at Gardner, the bullet taking ef
fect In the latter's 'leg. By this time the
guards had succeeded in freeing Temple
from the convicts. O'Day turned to
strike at Temple, when the guard shot
him through the right lung. O'Day
died soon afterwards. Temple will re
cover from his injuries. The convicts
engaged in the mutiny will ba severely
John Meshllng, age 21 years, residing
at Smlthville, was struck by a Lehigh
Valley freight train on the "cut off,"

East-bound shipments from Chicago
by rail amounted to 39,887 tons, as com
pared with 77,010 tons during the same
week in 1893.
It Is probable that the output for
January will be restricted to leps than
that of December. Last January when
the coal trade was in much better shape
than it Is now, the output was about
2,350,000 tons, a little less than the limit
for the present month. Considerable
coal had been accumulated. The Le
high Valley, Jersey Central and Read
ing all have big piles above ground.
Statement of business of all lines
of the Pennsylvania Railroad com
pany. All lines east of Pittsburg and
Erie for November, 1894, us compared
with the same month In 1893, show
an Increase In gross earnings of $177,-
704. i7; a decrease in expenditures of
$211,424.73. The eleven months of 1894,
as compared with the same period of
1893, show a decrease In gross earn
ings of 17,521.883.71: a decreuse In ex
penses of $6,649,415.83; a decrease In net
earnings of $872,431.68.
Philadelphia, Dec. 2G. The report
that the Pennsylvania contemplates
extending its lines to Scranton is au
thoritatively denied. "It Is an old Htury
revived," remarked Third Vice-President
Pugh. "The time was when such
a scheme was actually projected, but
that has passed. About five years ago
our company went so far as to purchase
property at Scranton with a view to
extending to that point. Aferwards we
made such satisfactory arrangements
with the Delaware and Hudson as to
influence the abandonment of the ex
tension idea. Since then the Pennsyl
vania has sold to the Delaware and
Hudson most of the Scranton property
which it purchased. No, there is noth
ing in the story. It would not pay us
to build an extension to Scranton; there
Isn't traffic enough to warrant the out
lay, especially In view of our excellent
arrangements with the Delaware and
Philadelphia, Dec. 2G. The stock
holders' committee of the Ltihlgh Val
ley Railroad company, which is op
posed to the re-election of President
Wilbur and the present management of
the road, hold an executive session thla
evening to consider the best means of
attaining their purpose. It was learned
that 'the committee engaged counsel
and will probably go Into court and ask
for an injunction restraining the Le
high Valley management from voting
the shares of the Packer estate. Coun
sel may also ank the court to appoint a
chancellor or a master to conduct the
election and compel the management
to ihold it In a large hall, instead of a
room that has been engaged. One of
the committeemen said that he 'thought
they had a winning chance of defeating
Wilbur. There are 800,000 shares of Le
high Valley stock, and of these 100,000
are always disfranchised for various
reasons, and the committeemen claim
that the 100,000 shares of the Packer
estate are held as collateral for loans
and cannot be voted. The majority of
the remaining 540,000 shares, the com'
mltteeman clailmed, are In the hands of
the smaller stockholders, who are- op
posed to the re-election of Preeldent

New York, Deo. 26. Without much
pressure to sell the Stock market today
sank to a lower level. At the opening
Distillers, Chicago Gas and Reading
showed firmness. Distillers rose 1H to
11; Chicago Gas 1 to 72, and Read
ing to 16. The improvement in the
first named was due "to rumora that
the antl-admlnlstr&tlon party were buy
ing the stock in the hope of ousting the
Greenliut crowd. Chicago Gas was
strengthened on dividend talk and
Reading improved on the announce
ment 'tbift 'the re-organlzatlon plan was
making rapid passage. Subsequently
there was a moderate selling movement
n the Grangers. The anthracite coal
ers were also weak late In the day and
Reading lost its early gain and receded
to 156al5. The Cordage etocks were
the weakest among the Industrials and
the common dropped Vj to 5V4; pre
ferred 3 to 8 and guaranteed 3 to
16. It was again stated that the com
pany has the fund necessary for its in
terest due Jan. 1. Exchange ruled a
shade firmer, but there was less talk
about gold exports. Speculation closed
Irregular and in the main weak. Total
sales were only 155,903 shares.

tive stocks of the New York stock mar

TO our patrons:
Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons that they will this year 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 are
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 three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling haa
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s Hour far above other
We have the following supplies of lumber secured, at
prices that warrant us in expecting a large
share of the trade :
