AMUINU ALLIGATORS AND HOUNDS.
Officers Have a Lively Time with an
cle Tom's Cabin" Company.
.new iork, March 31. A panic oc
curred at the Novelty theatre, Driggs
treet, Williamsburg. The excitement
was caused by s deputy sheriff and a
constable serving attachment papers
upon Harry Weber, who is manager for
the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" company.
This writ was secured for unpaid salar
ies. Ushers intercepted the officers and
lively tussle followed. The audience,
mainly composed of women with chil
dren, and young girls without male es
corts, grew terribly alarmed at the
fierce struggle, and many started for
the street. Finally the officers broke
away from the ushers and made flying
leaps over the heads of the orchestra and
landed upon the footlights. Both were
badly scorched by the lights.
Among the property of the company
was about a dozen full-grown aligators
and seven savage bloodhounds. Thj
officers in their haste rushed among the
brutes, and both men, in order to evade
the sharp fangs of the animals, were
compelled to shin up several stage trees
until the animals were called off. The
animals, with the scenery, were about
the only attachable property the officers

The Pontoon Across the Missouri at
SU Charles Again Demolished.
BATTLE IN A STAIRWAY.

mentLake Steamer Sank A
Lynching In Texas.
St. Charles, Mo., March 81. The
largest pontoon bridge in the world, lo
cated at St. Charles, across the Missouri
river broke from its moorings and cables
about 5 o'clock a. m., and with a series
of cracks and groans, and with a shower
of flying splinters, started down a very
wild river propelled by a stiff gale from
the southeast. Five men connected
with the bridge were on it at the time
of the break John Coleman, Fritz
Weeks, Louis Robinson James Sparks
and Capt. John Enoch, the bridge man
ager and superintendent. At a late
hour these men had not been heard
from. This is the third wreck the
bridge has experienced within the
past few weeks, and from the ap
pearance of the harbor this last
wreck is most complete, for not a single
pontoon stands out from either bank of
the river. The cables toward the St.
Charles shore broke first, and as the St.
Charles end moved down the stream the
cables snapped in turn until the last one
broke, when the bridge moved down a
few yards, and then bunched up in the
center with a grinding crash, heard for
a considerable distance. The wooden
railings flew in every direction. Some
of the pontoons must have struck the
stone piers of the Wabash bridge, for
there was another tremendous crash
when the boats passed under the high
spans. At the dyke that runs out into
the river at the northern line of the city
limits another crash was heard, evident
ly caused by colliding with the sharp
corners of the dyke, which is constructed
of square log pens ruled . in with rocKs.
The break was caused by about an acre
of driftwood piling against the bridge.
Battle In a Ktalrway.
Chicago, March 31. The race pre
judice existing between the Arabians,
Greeks and Italians living in the squalid
tenement at No. 126 Pacific avenue,
broke out afresh, and before being sub
dued by the police considerable blood
was flowing and several broken heads
were being nursed. The fight started
between the Scota and the Marginni
families who live on the top floor, but
in a very few minutes a hundred howl
ing, yelling, half drunken men, women
and children were participating. Old
fashioned and modern guns, knives and
revolvers were freely used. Up and
down the narrow stairway the yelling
mob fought and struggled. Tony Scota,
a low browed evil-looking fellow, leaned
over the stair railing and fired a shot
from a murderous looking revolver, the
bullet taking effect in Mrs. Marginni'g
head, producing an ugly wound. The
Iiolice were summoned and a wagon
oad of men sent to the scene. They
were compelled to draw their revolvers
and force their way through the crowd
to rescue the woman.
The Wreck of the Dictator.
Norfolk, Va., March 81. Lieut.
Walker, of the United States life sav
ing service, arrived at the beach, and is
making a rigid investigation into the
loss of lire in connection with the wreck
of the bark Dictator. There is a dis
position here to censure the Sea Island
life-saving crew for not attempting to
launch the life boat, as it was shown
that even a small boat could make the
trip in safety, the bark's dingy coming
ashore without capsizing, and bringing
four men. Two of these men after they
had gotten ashore wanted to take the
small boat back for their comrades, but
were not allowed to do so. Ouly two
bodies of those lost on the Dictator have
so far been recovered. The body of the
first mate is thought to be lashed to the
wreck, and the body of the captain's
wife is supposed to be under the wreck,
as she 'ua on it when the final crash
Trouble at a Crave.
Pittsburg, Pa., March 31. Jen Sen,
one of the wealthiest Chinamen in this
city, was buried in Hilldale cemetery
according to the full ritual of the Ma
sonic fraternity. Jen's funeral was at
tended by about a thousand Chinamen
from all over western Pennsylvania.
They inarched to the plaoo of interment
preceded by the Second Brigado band.
They carried Chinese llatts and beat
cymbals and tom-toms, making an un
earthly racket. At the cemetery a fight
occurred between the inoiirutis and
hoodlums, and two of the former were
thiown into the newly-made grave.
Fried chicken and rare delicacit s, Chiu

THE PARNELU ENVOYS.
O'Kelly Declares the Narcrss of the Mis
sion Is Assured.
Chicago, March 81. James J. O'Kel
ly, the chief of the Paruellite delegation,
left for Detroit. "Our mission," said
Mr. O'Kelly, "is already an assured suc
cess, notwithstanding the reports to the
contrary telegraphed all over the coun
try and printed in the newspapers.
Over thirty meetings have beVn ar
ranged for already, and every day brings
new invitations. We will commence
about April 12 in Philadelphia, taking
in all the eastern cities and coming west
ward as far as Chicago, where we shall
have to divide up our delegaliou in order
to be able ttf fill our engagements dur
ing the next two months. The state
ment telegraphed over the country that
I got a hostile reception in Lincoln, is
utteily without foundation. I am not
at liberty to state what took place be
tween President Fitzgerald and the
other gentlemen I met ami myself, but
it will come ont in good time. The
statement that I was curtly told in
Omaha that there was no money there
for Parnell, is a ridiculous falsehood. I
was most cordially received by the lead
ing Irish citizens of Omaha, and a good
meeting was guaranteed. I start for
Detroit to meet O'Brien J. Atkinson of
Port Huron and a number of other rep
resentative Irish-Americans of Michigan.
After that I shall take in a few or the
principal cities of Ohio, and then I re
turn here. I am perfectly satisfied that
our mision will le successful and that
the great mass of the Irish here.as in Ire
land, aro solid for Parnell."
NATIVE TROOPS DEFEATED.
Five Hundred Goorkhas Slain In a Battle
London, March 31. A dispatch re
ceived from Manipur.province of Assam,
tells of the disastrous defeat of a force
of native troops garrisoned at that
place. The chief commissioner of As
sam, Mr. James W. Quinton, has been
investigating serious troubles among
the native chiefs in that conntry, hav
ing in contemplation the arest of a
prominent chief who had been active in
effecting the deposition of the reignirg
rajah. M. Quinton established a strong
camp, which he manned with (ioorkhas,
native light infantry in the British East
Indian service. This action was
nromntlv accented as a challenge by the
hostile tribes and thecamp was savagely
attacked. Two days of fierce fighting
followed. The Goorkhas fought with
valor aud determination, but the odds
against them were very heavy. They
are reported to have left 470 of their
number dead on the field. The chief
commissioner and seven orncers are
also reported to be missing.
LONDON.March SL-r-Official dispatches
received from Calcutta confirm the
truth of the disastrous news from Mani
cure, province of Assam, to the effect
that a force of Qhoorkhas had after two
days of fierce fighting and the loss of
470 killed out of tneir numoer, been de
feated by natives of the province. Of
ficial advices leave uncertain the fate of
the chief commissioner of Assam, James
W. Quinlan, who was at the time of
the battle conducting an investigation
into the tribal troubles, as well as of
that of several British officials who ac
companied him. The viceroy, how
ever, expresses the belief that all have
been either killed or taken prisoners.
To add to the gravity of the situation
the same advices say that that it is be
lieved that 200 Bengalees infantry and
800Ghoorkhas who were marching to
Maupin.have been attacked in a difficult
mountain pass and annihilated.
New York, March 81. The commit

road. The committee found the condi
tion of affairs as represented, and was
satisfied to execute the contract al
ready drawn for control of the property.
President Breyfogle and Vice Presidents
Hunt and Postlethwaite, together with
eight of the present directors, then re
signed. The new management elected
a new board of directors, which chose
Gen. Samuel Thomas as president and
John Greenough as vice president. Mr.
Breyfogle was made assistant to Presi
dent Thomas. It was stated after the
meeting that the road would be contin
ued as an independent system, and that
its alliances with friendly connections
would not be disturbed.

The Klncald Murder TrlaL
Washington, March 31. The leading
hotels in Zurich, Switzerland, now have
on their bills of fare 'viande de Anien
cane. The stock yards' translation of
it is "Prime American beef." Now that
the European market for American
meats is looking up, the report of Con
sul Catlin telling how it was done is in
teresting. A suggestion having been
made to the Swiss Butchers' association,
an influential body extending all over
Switzerland and having some 500 mem
bers, that there might be a profit in the
introduction of American beef cattle on
the hoof from one or another of the
great seaports, it was determined to
make the exieriinent. A committee pro
ceeded to Antwerp and purchased
110 Chicago beeves from a cargo just
arrived. They were shipped from Ant
werp in eleven through cars as fast
freight for Basle, reaching Zurich in
good condition and within less than
three weekB from New York. The
round price paid at Antwerp was about
7 cents per English pound. The freight
for the entire lot from Antwerp to Basle
was $S49, which is rather higher than
will be paid for subsequent shipments.
The cattle found a ready market at
ouco. Zurich took thirty, Basle, Berne
and St. Galle each twenty, and Winter
thnr and Brug each ten head, and the
beef was pronounced to be excellent in
quality. It was sold off at the usual
selling price, about 17 cents per pound,
and proved inadequate to the demand
which hail been created by the news of
the experiment being made.
Carter's Appointment Hatlsfactory.
Washington, March 31. In appoint
ing ex-Congressman Carter of Montana
to be commissioner of the general bind
office the president has given more
widespread satistaction man no pos'
silly could have through the appoint
merit of any other one of the many can'
didates proposed for the place, not be
cause there was no others suggested
who were not equally qualified for the
position, but it is doubtful if there
is another man in the country available
for the appointment who was so well
and favorably known to all the con
gressmen having business with the land
office. Mr. Carter, during his career in
congress Rave particular attention to
matters relating to the land laws of the
country, and he was looked upon as one
of the best posted men on such subjects
in congress. He will mnke an excellent
official, and while others who were in
the race will naturally be disappointed,
they will not fail to join in the general
commendation iri the wisdom shown by
the president in making the selection.
Utiles for Sugar Producers.
Washington, March 81. The com
missioner of internal revenue has pre
pared a serious of regulations for the
enforcement of the provisions of the
McKinley tariff act in regard to the
bounty on sugar of domestic produc
tion. They prescribe that all producers
of sugar who intend to apply for a
bounty on sugar produced during the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1892, must
file notice and make application for a
license within the year beginning April
1, giving full and detailed information
of machinery, apparatus and capacity.
A proper bond must also be executed by
every person or firm intending to manu
facture sugar. Full instructions are
given in regard to tho books producers
shall keep, etc. The bounty will be paid
from year to year.

CHICAGO MAYORALTY FIGHT.
Bator Painter Addresses Two Meetings

Chicago, March 8). Senator Palmer
arrived in Chicago and at once plunged
Into the mayoralty fight, advocating, as
expected, the cause of Dewitt C. Creiger,
who has been declared by the Demo
cratic state central committee the regu
lar Democratic nomine as against ex
Mayor Harrison. Marching clubs and
bands formed an escort for the senator,
who proceeded withont delay to the
meeting of the Democratic Polish
Americans, which he addressed iu com
pany with other speakers. The audi
ence of 2.000 greeted him enthusiasti
cally. The burden of Gen. Palmers
speech was that Chicago was being
looked to by the party throughout the
country for a great Democratic victory.
He intimated that harmony now would
go far towards securing success in a
later struggle for the control of the
state. Gen. Palmer subsequently ad
dressed a large meeting of Scandinavian-Americans
in another portion of the
