. New York, July 80. Ex-Alderman
Mphael Duffy, of the board of 1884,
and informer against the members in
the trials for briber, wu before the
superior court in connection with hie
sensational suit to reoorer a larger
share of boodle. The natter came w
in the form of an application fer turn
ination before trial of J oka Keeaan,
William Malony and Robert E. DeLaoy.
The examination is asked for in order
that Duffy may be enabled to frame
complaint aa-ainst Keeaan, whoa he
charges with having been the trustee of
a fond of $500,000, given by the Broad
way railroad. Judge DeOrow took the
papers and reserved hsi decision. Tbe
statements made by Ifr. Duffy as t the
nature of the fund are of an indefinite)
aad unsatisfactory character. He fJiTea
it as his understanding, howeYer, that
the money has been largely forested in
Canadian real estate. The ex-alderman
admits that of the amount due him h
has received at one time $5,000 and at
other times sums making m all $10,000.
In conclusion, Mr. Duffy says that the
nature of the agreement has been con-
oealed In order to keep tbe trust invio
late, and that the action is brought in
the interest of morality, equity and jus
UcKessport, Pa., July 80. The
status of affairs at the National Boiling
mill is growing serious. Some of the
strikers hare returned to work. This has
incensed those who are still out to such
an extent that they are resorting to no-
lence. James Jackson started for tbe
mill in the morning. He was terribly
beaten and abused and chased home by
a mob of strikers. John Moran's house
was surrounded and stoned, and bullets
fired through the windows. When
Moran started for work he was fol
lowed by a howling mob with olubs.
Moran pulled a "revolver but was
as?ested and locked up. Throe of his
?ailants were also arrested. Ane
company s omcaals claim that mom
than half the men wish to go to work
but are prevented by a few ringleaders.
They now propose fighting the strike to
a finish ana are arranging for the pro
tection of all the men who desire to go
to work. A special police force was
sworn in and a proclamation was issued
by the burgess commanding the rioters
to keep the peace. The sheriff has also
been called upon and will detail a squad
of deputies to assist the local police
Women Murdered in Bod.
Baltimokb, Julv 30 Mrs, Charles R.
York and her mother, Mrs. McClennan,
living at Bengies, twelve miles from
this city, were murderously assaulted by
James it. Meeks, who had been work
ing for Mr. York. The women were in
bed when Meeks stole into their cham
ber and struck each in the head with an
axe. Their wounds will prove fatal.
Meeks was subsequently arrested and is
now locked up. He confesses the crime,
but says he did not intend to commit
murder. Money for labor performed
was demanded of Mr. York by Meeks,
and as he did not at once respond the
assault followed as a means df revenge.

"The recent attempt to secure
charter from the state of North Dakota
for a lottery company; the pending

selves of responsibility by the use of
such moral agencies as wars within
apply legal remeaies, nagnc clear tnem-
their reach. But the case is not so. The
people of all ths states are debauched
and defrauded. The vast susas of money
offered to the states for charters are
drawn from the people of the United
btates, and the general government
through its maxl system is mads the ei
fectire and profitable medium of inter
course between the lottery company and
its victims, xne use 01 tne mails is
quits as essential to the companies as
ths state license. It would be practic
ally impossible for these companies to
exist if the public mails were once ef
fectively closed against the advertise
ments and remittances. The use of the
mails by these companies is a proetitu
tion of an agency only intended to
serve the purposes of a legitimate trade
and decent social intercourse.
"It is not necessary, I am sure, for
me to attempt to portray the robbery of
the poor, and the widespread corrup
tion of public and private morals which
are the necessary incidents of these lot
tery schemes. The national capital has
become a sub-headquarters of the Louis

Democrats Fighting for Breckinridge.
Washington, July 30. The Demo
crats broke a quorum in the house elec
tions committee, and the result was no
action on the Breckinridge case. The
reason given was that not sufficient time
had been given to the minority to ex
amine the report of the .majority. A
further reason, not announced, was the
fear that should the report go in a mo-

the case on the calendar, and looking to
its immediate consideration. The Re
publican purpose, which is not con
cealed, is to unseat Mr. Breckinridge,
and another meeting of the committee
has been called for Friday next.

Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. As soon
as it became known that I had the medi
cine for free distribution, there began a
great run on it, which continued until it 1
was about all gone. Eyery one, so far as
I heard from them, testified to its virtues,
declaring it the best medicine for the
purpose they had ever used. Those who
j got it shared it around with their neigh-
bors, so that I am confident it was pro
ductive of great good. We used some of
it ourselves and found it not only an ex
cellent medicine for diarrhoea, but for
all kinds of pain and uneasiness in the
stomach and bowels. It has been regard
ed as the beet medicine known here for

The following named jurors were im-
panneled by Coroner TJnruh yesterday
afternoon in the matter of holding an
inquest over the body of Thos. Riley,
who was killed by being struck by an
engine in the yards yesterday, near the
noon hour: J. W. Johnson, L. C. Stiles,
Wm. Herold, W. D. Jones, W. T. Cole,
and R. Donnelly. The jury found that
the deceased came to his death through
his own carelessness, and held the rail
road employes blameless. The body
was interred at 11 o'clock this forenoon
by the coroner. It was reported that the
Unfortunate man had a brother at Bay
CitJ. Michigan, but Mr. Unruh could get
no response from a telegram sent him of
the accident, hence the expense of the
burial will be borne by the county.
