Virginia Anarchlsis T hror.ten
Lynchbcru. Ya., Nov. 13. Tlrre is
trouble in Poeohontas between desperate
miners and the people. The meagre infor
mation obtainable here is tht trouble
arose over a despatch from Chicago call
ing upon the foreigners in the mines to
avenge the death of the anarchists. The
men who work in the mines are mostly
ignorant immigrants from Germany, Italy
and Russia. Orderly and respectable
people .have long disliked them
for their anarchistic proclivities and have
shown t'.ieir hostility without stint. In
this dislike the negroes have supported
the whites. With this state of things,
reports of serious trouble have good foun
dation. One despatch received here this
afternoon says: "Both sides arc fortified

Chicago, Nov. 14. The bodies of
Spies, Parsons, Engel, Fischer and Lingg
were laid to reit yesterday. In Milwau
kee Av. district where the funeral pro
cession and demonstration was held, the
streets and buildings were crowded for a
distance of over three miles. It is esti
mated that 100,000 people were on the
streets but no riotous acts were committed
and about half of the men wore red in
some form about their person. About
2,000 people composed the procession, on
foot as societies and in carnages as rel
atives and friends. Spies b-jdy and
sympathisers headed the procession;
Fischer's body and friend came next;
Parson's body and friends next; EugcTs
body and friends next, and Lingg's boily
and friends formed the last division.
All went quiet till the corner of 5th Av.
and Lake street had been reached; here a
one-armed, gray haired man sprang in
front of the procession and marched be
fore it to the depot, carrying in his hand
a cane with the stars and stripesattached.
At the depot ne disappeared in the crowd.
At the depot thirty cars carried the
funeral to Waldhcim cemetary. Here
speeches were made by Capt. Dlack;
Uobeit lieitzel, a German editor of De
troit; Thos. J. Morgan, leader of the
socialistic labor clement; and Albert Cur
ran, editor of the Arbtiter Ztitung spoke
last. When he had concluded the doors
of the receiving vault were opened, and
while the Mannerchor sang a farewell
hymn tiic coflins were one by one carried
in. When the last one had been deposited
in its place the doors were ugain closed
and locked. The band played a final
dirge r.nd the curt tin had fal'e.i en the

A Counterfeiter's Choek
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 14. Several
months ago in the federal court William
Tendl was sentenced to five years impris
onment for counterfeiting. This was his
third conviction. District Attorney Sel
lers has received from the department at
Washington all the papers in the matter
of Teal's application for a pardon. Very
much to Mr. Seller's surprise, fts well as
to the surprise of the court officials, he
found his own name and that of Judge
Woods. Marshal Hawkins, Clerk Butler,
William II. English, I'obert Browning
and others on the petition for a pardon.
The forgeries which had been very clum
sily executed were evidently all done by
the same person. The papers have been
returned to Washington and Teal's
chances for pardon are gone.
LIFE IN THE PENITENTIARY.
A Correspondent'! Reflections After a
Visit to the Inmates of Sing Sing.
Think what it is to enter those walls and
face that clock, whoso slow pendulum shall
beat out not seconds, minutes, hours, days,
weeks or months but years of your precious
youth and ruanhood before you again seo the
world which has discarded you ! Think of
the unrelieved round of toil, succeeded by
the solitary coll and miserable hours of think
in;r what mirht have been and what is! How
slow the hours to him without hope, without
profit in his bitter toil, without comfort in
his solitude, without honor, without respect,
without liberty! How slow the days make
the week, and tho weeks the month, where
each is drearily the- same, season in and
season out, till tho doleful year is told !
To be the companion of the vilest, cheek by
jowl; to wear the garb of infamy; to be
driven from the cell to labor, and from the
labor to the cell ; to see on all sides the high
walls and tho redoubts, where gleam the
rifles ready to kill the insurgent; to know
that however skillfully tho escape is planned,
however bravely executed, thero are keen
scented and lynx ej-ed pursuers to track and
tho strong arm of the law to recover; to feel
that by no power can relief come until the
long distant day appointed, save the power
which can bless an unhappy life by ending it.
AVhat a record of hoix-lessness, of despair,
remorse and gnawing misery the pitiless stono
of those cells could tell ! Small wonder that
after j-ears of confinement every kindly trait
of nature is withered, root and branch, and
only sullen desperation and hatred of society
Look at their faces to read their story. Not

A Cause of Clerks Dishonesty.
I firmly believe that mere than one-half of
the defalcations and breaches of Must among
clerks are caused by the silent teachings of
dishonest merchants. I do not mean to ex
cuse the clerks who permit themselves to be
influenced by such teachings, but I wish to
put the lirst blame where it belongs and, in
meting out punishment to the offenders, ideal
justice would consign them Loth to the peni
Everybody must deplore the morality that
permits false weights and false prices; that
puts a 'tnree pouna ' label on a rorty-two
ounce package; that sells fifty per cent, of
spoiled Hour and worse than sjoiled buck
wheat as "pure mustard and "pure" lcpper;
that laughs at the sharp trick of false weights
inserted in bills of lading to defraud the rail
road and steamship companies; that applauds
the successful bribery of a custom house ex
aminer of dutiable goods; that chuckles at
the clever imitation of a competitor's trade
mark; that twists and turns and prevaricates
to avoid the payment of taxes justly due the
commonwealth for its blessings of liberty
and protection ; that di.?s, in a word, every
thing that is low and mean and degrading,
pud nothing that is fair and true and just.
I say morality of this sort is not the atmos
phere in which to bring up a j outh. Should
he survive it all. and come out of it pure and
true, it will be because he has within him tho
mettle of a true man, and not because of his
surrounqings, Frank Grafton in The Epoch.

Tlio Silent Hull Terrier the Most KAVct
Ive. IIouso I'roteetor Fate of a Thief.
A Itutlluii in the Kitchen Hit or Ad
"I do not train dogs to watch for burglars,"
said a fancier, "but some of thrau that are
well bred are led to do it by their natural
sagacity and force of character. They may
not perform tho duty with the desperate en
ergy that is shown by the whity brown cur
with the long tail and the black p. t -h over
his eye, but they will do it well fii:gh to
answer every reasonable expectation. That
bull terrier you s-o then now, weighing
about thirty-live pounds, with the uudershot
jaw and ugly enough to be put into a cham
ber of horrors anywhere, might be wide
avako when u robber is squeezing his body
through the pantry window, but he would
make no elTVirt to stop tho man's entry; but
oneo in the fellow would have hard work to
get out again.
"It is not easy to say what the bull terrier
will do witli tho prisoner when he lias hint at
his mercy. It depends largely uion tho ani
mal's previous general (not special) training.
Certainly t ho man will havo no voieo in tho
. matter, unless he howls to the inmates of the
house for protection, which i.i really the
wisest course he could take, though ho sel
dom chooses it. A personal encounter hand
to tooth would be a forlorn Iiojm; indeed, nnd
tho possession of a pistol gives fewer ad
vantages than you might think. Tho drawing
of the weapon would precipitate tho conflict.
The bull terrier is a brute hard to kill, and r.
mero wound only adds to its ferocity. Then
the combatants are too clo;:e together to al-lo-.v
of the effective use of a revolver, and a
'throat grip,' which the dog may get at oner,
und is almost sure to secure in a few seconds,
will very quickly place tho roblx-r where n.
pistol, though it would probably lie ilis
charged before the trigger was pulled, will
do him no good.
"The dog is not going to disturb the family,
lie is a sentinel who can watch without mak
ing everybody else watch, too. Daylight, he
thinks, will bo quite lime enough for those to
whom he owes allegiance to inquire into tho
merits of the case, m.d the 011I5' serious ques
tion that arises is: "Will the burglar be. able to
take his proiicr place in t'ao investigation ,
Or, in other words, returning to the original
proposition, AVhat is the bull terrier going to
do with him?
"I know of throe crises in which distinct
answers were given to that question. The
head of a family was warned by his butler
that ho had noticed f.omo suspicious looking
men prowlmg about tho rear of tho house,
und would respectfully suggest that the silver
ware be sent to the vaults of a safe deposit.
This advice was given after business hours,
but tho gentleman determined to avail him
self of it on the following day. Meanwhile
he borrowed a big, unamiablo bull terrier
from tho butcher and neglected to mention
the fact to tho butler. Nobody in the upper
regions of the houso was disturbed that night,
for the work down stairs was done in silence.
Tho next morning the dead body of the butler
was found lying on the floor of the pantry
with the dog c vouching beside it. The man's
throat was torn out and some of the family
jewelry was in his pockets. The silverware
was placed so that, had he not been inter
rupted, he could have quickly and easily
handed it to his confederates, whose footprints
were stamped upon the clay beneath tho win
dow. He had warned his master iu order to
prevent suspicion from falling upon himself,
but lie had not taken the bull terrier into his
"Then I knew an old lawyer who was
aroused before daybreak by roars for help in
the hall, .'.nd going down stairs found a bur
glar sitting on a marble top table, and a
fierce eyed bull terrier, that a friend of mine
had given him as a fee for defending a law
suit, gazing at him from the floor,
"And, again, I once sold, a fine bull terrier
to an elderly lady, who, distrusting servants
and living all alone in her house, thought
she needed such a protector. Coming down
to light the fire one morning, she was horri
fied to find her dog grimly watching a burly
ruffian in the kitchen.
" 'If you please, marni,' said the man, touch
ing his cap as she entered, 'I ain't took
nothin' yet. That 'ere wild beast o' yourn
would a tore me to small bits if I had. He's
been a keepin' his eye on me, marm, and if
I'd stirred a step he'd a been at me. I've put
in a mont uncommon nasty night, marm,
and I do hopes you won't bo hard 011 me.'
"She was not hard upon him. Rho gave
him his breakfast and allowed him to go un
molested. Then she came around to my
place with the dog and sold him back to me
at half price, saj'ing that if I had told her he
was so remorseless a brute she would never
have allowed him into her house at all.
TOE MOST USEFUL DOG.
"The fact is, no watchdog is of the slight
est use to a lad If ho barks and arouses
her she is far more terrified than tha thieves,
and when he does his work silently he is not
the social companion she cares to have in her
boudoir. She has stated her needs to iae
often enough when she came to purchase a
pet. What she wants is a soft, silky little
fellow, who will sleep as soundly as she does
herself, anil not provoke the burglars by
making any unseemly disturbance.
"But for persons whok would rather risk an
encounter with thieves than loose their goods,
a well bred, rough haired terrier, weighing
about twelve pounds, makes a capital house
protector. He is likely to be full of intelli
gence, and will not give an alarm without
cause. If he hears a noise he will thoroughly
investigate it before he barks. No passing
footsteps, no wind rattled shutters, in fact
nothing but an absolute attempt to get, felo
niously, into the house, will induce him to
arouse the inmates. If his suspicions are
awakened he will go, very quietly, from door
to door, and from window to window, sniff- '
ing softly at each, and ascertain the exact
state of affairs. Then if his voice is heard tt
is time for everybody to get up. Th rob
bers will always certainly run avay when
they hear him, but if there is any 'unpleas
antness' the dog may be trusted to do his full
share of the work, though he could not under
take it alone. Such a dog should never be
allowed to fraternize with strangers or to
take food from unaccustomed bands, though,
probably, his disposition will not lead him to
do so, but poisoned meat surreptitiously
thrown over the fence' is a great aid to bur
glars. "San Francisco Examiner.
