DIIOCRATS DISLOYAL TO t l.h V hLA. l
jew York, Oct. 12. A sensation
ha been caused in political circles
introoklyn by the statement that
may members of the central deni
ocitic club believe that the denio
crtic machine is not loyal to Cleve-
lai and Stevenson and that the
reblican machine is only an
atux to the democratic ring.

to delmie dedicatory address
at the Ws fair. He replied this
afternoon to the urgent request
from President rainier, as follows:
"Hon. T. W. Palmer, President:

ESI'ION'ACK AT AN ENI.
Homestead, Pa., Oct. 13-The mil
itary espionage that has been kept
over this town for ninety-five days
came to an end this morning. Al
most the entire poulation of the
town gathered to witness the de
parture of the militia, but there was
no demonstration of any kind. At
ten o'clock every vestige of the
camp was removed and the men
marched to Muuhill station and
boarded the special train which was
in waiting. After the departure of
the trcops the crowd dispersed and
the town resumed its wonted quiet.
General Wylie said to a reporter
that, while no further trouble was
anticipated, the troops would be
held in read incss, , and should cir
cumstances require, the- would
quickly return to Homestead.

CRISHEP UNDER THE WHEELS.
Manning, la., Oct. 13.-VhiIe
driving to town on a load of hay
today, Eugene Mowen fell under
the wheels and was so badly
rushed that death was almost in
stantaneously. He was a young
man and the sole support of a
TERRIFIC SNOW STORM.
Cheyenne, Wyo., Oct. 14. For
nearly two days the severest storm
ever Known on the L nion racitic
railroad has been raging here and
as far as Ogden, U. T.
In all directions telegraphic com
munication was cut until early this
morning when this dispatch was
sent through on a temporary wire.
All railroads have been blocked,
the cuts being tilled with snow
which in some places was piled up
eighteen feet. Rotary miow plows
have been hard hard at work be
tween Granite and Laramie, the
snow being five feet deep on the
level at the latter place.
A half dozen westbound trains
were tied up here all yesterday, but
leit alter the return ot the snow
plow last night. During the day
thirty coach loads of people pulled
in from the west in three sections,
with more to follow. The Cheyenne
Northern is entirely blocked, tele
graphed communication being cut
off, and no one knows where the
belated trains on it are. Two days
have elapsed since this road was
snowed in. .
At Granite cannon Conductor
Roberts yesterday was blown olf
the platform ot a car and hurled
down a l.TO foot embankment, the
deep snow saving his life.
Reports are being received of
immense loss of cattle and horses
in northern Coloradoand in Wyom
ing. Thousands of dollars' worth
of these animals are known to have
perished, and it is estimated that
almost a third of the cattle and
horses on the ranges have been de
stroyed by the storm.
An unknown dead man was found
by the side of the railroad track
near Greely, Colo., today. He had
perished from the effects of the
DEVASTEI) HY I'RAIRIE FIRES.
Winnipeg, Minn., Oct. 11. The
western half of Alberta, a ranching
district of the northwest, has been
devastated by prairie lires. Thous
ands of tons of hay and many
buildings have been burned. It is
feared m;my cattle perished. The
flames advanced so rapidly that
the ranchmen were compelled to
mount horses and flee for their
lives. I'nless they can find new
ranges they will scarcely be able to
tide the stock over the winter, and
consequently the loss will be

company has commenced the
erection of a million dollar bridge
across the Missouri here. It will
be open to the use of all railroads
for toll charges within nine months.
Heretofore the Northwestern road,
owning the only bridge ncross the
river here, has held the key to
northern Nebraska and shut all
other roads out.

COFFE YVW.I.E, Kas., Oct. l".-,Tn
warned by the fate of the Dalton
band of desperadoes only a week
ago, two men held up a Missouri
Pacific train near Caney, a small
town in this vicinity, last night,
shot Express Messenger J. N. Max
well through the arm. broke open
the express safe and secured all the
money in the car. As the regular
express money, except what was
destined for way stations, had been
transferred at Conway Springs,
the booty was of little value.
Just asthetraiu drew up at Caney
at 10:1.") last night, two masked men
heavily armed with Winchesters
and revolvers, climed on the loco
motive tender from the front of the
combination baggage and express
car and covered Engineer Eggle-
ston mid his fireman with lilies
The locomotive men were ordered
to pull slowly to the switch, where
all was darkness, and where there
was no danger ol molestation. This
At the whistling post the outlaws
ordered the engineer to stop, and
made the fireman uncouple the ex
press car from the rest of the train.
All this was done so quietly that
no one in the coaches was disturbed.
The engineer was then ordered to
pull ahead with the express car and
he obeyed, for the Winchesters held
close to his head looked unpleas
antly dangerous. When a deep cut
half a mile further on had been
reached the engine was halted.
Express Messenger J. N. Maxwell,
who had witnessed the uncoupling,
had in the meantime blown out his
lights, barred and barricaded the
doors, and made ready for desper
Hie order to open up the car
elicited no response, and the rob
bers began firing into the sides of
the car with their Winchesters
Maxwell answered the shots with
his revolver for a few minutes, but
finally received a bullet in his right
arm, which disabled him, and he
was fain to surrender.
The robbers ordered him to light
his lamps and open the car door
and as soon as he had done siVthey
entered the car witli the engineer
in front of them as a shield. Max
well was then forced to open his
safe anil deliver up his watch and
personal property. The men then
backed off the car and disappeared
in the darkness.
Messenger Maxwell, who is now
here nursing his wound, which is
not serious, declares that the rob
bers secured less than $1(10, all told.
The men engaged in last night's
work were probably the same ones
who last week held held up the
station agent at Sedan.
KOOLINC. THE NKGKO.
Jackson, Miss., Oct. llt.-Mr. K.
II. Wildcberger of Clarksdale.Miss.,
is in the city and brings late
details of the recently reported race
riot and trouble in Coahoma county,
which went abroad as a bloody war
between the blacks and whites. It
develops, Mr. Wildeberger says,
that the trouble has its origin in a
secret society organized among the
blacks bv the famous Judge Albion
V. Tourgee of Maysville, X. Y., who
in consideration of $'2 cash in hand
(of which $1.."0 goes to Tourgee)
furnished the blacks with a certifi
cate which guaranteed' to them,
whether qualified electors or not,
in large black capitals, the right to
vote, followed by these words in
very small type, "in any meeting of
the Citizens Kight , association."
The poor negroes, Mr. Wildeberger
says, think this oath bound associ
ation is a substantial backing in
resistance to any legal process in
putting down the whites and ad
vancing the prices of cotton pick
ing. Some of the members or-the
society came to grief in Coahoma
county and gave away the whole
play, which, Mr. Wildeberger
asserts, is simply to get all the
money possible out ol the negroes
and to involve them in trouble for
political effect. The grand jury of
Coahoma county is investigating
the society now, which has a large
membership in the back counties
and serious indictments will likely
The trouble in Coahoma county
has simmered down to this: A
negro resisted arrest, backed by
this secret organization, firing upon
the officer. Kesult Two negroes
killed and members of the society
in jail and the records of the organ
ization in official custody.

Chicago, Hi., Oct. 14- Chicago ho
tels propose to make the most of
the coining dedication ceremonies.
Almost as soon as the dates were
positively fixed there seemed to be
a steady rise in prices, which con
tinued until all the rooms were
taken. The clerks were as gentle
manly as ever when they showed
the unsuspectng wayfarer a room
which would only cost for
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
of next week. Prices have been in
creased six-fold in some of the
larger houses. Even the little Euro
pean hotels far down town, which
provided la-cent beds "for men
only," have more than doubled
One of the largest European
hotels in the city has devised a
cunning scheme to tripple its reve
nue while seeming to follow its old
scale of charges. 'Every room in
the building will he provided with
from one to four cot beds, which
can be had at the rate of $1 a day.
In case a person wiches a private
room he can pay the regular
charges on all the cots and have
them removed. In this manner the
long-headed proprietor expe.Ms to
sell the same cot bed four or five
time every night.
Two of the largest American
hotels will receive guests at reason
able rates up to the first of the week,
after which they absolutely refuse
to make any prices, saying that they
will demand what the exigenceis of
the case require. To secure favor
ite suites of rooms at the popular
places, wealthy easterners have
agreed to pay the price named and
ask tim question.
