of three miles in n tocalltv seven miles north

doubtedly the work of a lunatic era tiend.
July 31 , John Ulen , a prominent farmer of
the county , was found dead at the foot of a
ladder placed azainst the limb of an apple
tree. Ills neck hitl boon broken nnd his face
bruised by what vvns then supposed to be a
fall from the ladder. Next August 2J a
a largo two-story residence of George
Elme-s , who lives but n quarter of a
mile from Klons , was burned in the night
under very suspicious circumstances. Again
September 1 stacks of hay and abirn contain
ing ; considerable grain and belonclng to
James Crow , who lives near Elmers , was
burned. This lire was also caused verv mys-
teilouslv. The work of tills destructive
demon was traiisfened hick to the Widow
Kiens' nlace. The hou&o was ransacked In
the absence of the family and souio money
stolen. Shortly afterwards while the family

upon Investigation discovered a blaze In a
loom in the aecond-story. which after some
trouble was put out. The next morning
eome pirties passing the honso discovered

nlichted from their cairiage to extinguish It ,
but almost before they had completed this a
straw stack near the house broke out in
llames , anil it requlieil the utmost efforts to

It now appears plain that these fires and
thefts have all been the work of ono partv ,
and n young mnn in the neighborhood Is
strongly suspected. Whoever the guilty
party may be. if discovered ho Is In danger of
meeting punishment before the law can lay
its clutches on him. The neighborhood Is In
an Intense state of excitement and everv

An nvantfnl Voyncc.
Nnvv YOIIK. Oct. H [ Special Telegram
to the HIKI : The last voyage of the steamer
America seems to have been an eventful
ono. The following Is the story as given by
the log : The America left Queenstown
Thursday morning n week ao with fair
weather , but within two hours after loivlng
the harbor a storm came up whloh the oftlcors
of the ship describe as the most violent that
the vessel over passed through. Captain
Hraco went to the bndgo at the llrst sign of
bul weather and remained there for forty-
two hours , exposed not only to the wind and
rnln but to the waves which , during Thurs
day night , was clear over the bridge , tilltne
the life boits with water and clearing every
tiling from the decks that a foico of ten fet't
of water could move. In the midst of the
storm the stoker , who had narrowly escaped
being hurled into thu lire by the pitching of
the vessel , deserted Ids post and rushed up
on deck with the avowed intention of jumpIng -
Ing overboard rather than risk again the
danger ot his work. Ho was forced bacK to
the furnace room , but his fright soon devel
oped Into Insinlty , and he was found crouch
ing between the two furnaces in abject ter
ror , nwaltlug ntiothur opportunity to commit
suicide. Ho vvns placed in irons. At the
same timeamnlc was created in the steerage -
ago bynn alarm of "lire , " and several hun
dred men and vv onion lushed to the hatches
endeavoring to cet to the boats. Dense vol
umes of what seemed to be smoke thiough-
out the ship caused alarm nnd the
olllceis in charge had a desperate lisrht for
some time to control tlio frightened steerage
pa MMieers. Investigation snowed that the
"sinoki ) ' " was merely steim caused by some
water having washed over the hot steam
pipes , but airaln flighthad developed Into a
case of Insanity , and ono ot tlio steerage
pa semersnn Encllshinnn who had deserted
his family and his position on an Kn-jlish
imllcn force , now attacked the stewards with
araxorand threatened to kill nny ono who
tried to prevent his jumping overboard. He
was placed under watcli after being dis
armed , and became quieter after thu stoim
had subsided. The cook was severely In
jured during the storm by being thrown
across the kitchen withn knifu in lit : hand ,
cutting nis head. About noon on Saturday
Captain Grace left the bridge , the ship being
entirely out of danger , but his forty-two
hours'exposure without sleep ami the nerv
ous strain caused bjtht ) clnpter ot incidents
icfeirod to was too much forliim. Five min
utes after coming ol ! duty the leactlou de

the Knights ot Labor atj Klchmoiul , In inak
Ing a plea for mercy In bphalfo of the con
victed anarchists at Chicago , has caused con
sideruble comment among the conservative
labor leaders of this city. . There were othei
measures adopted and recommended af tin
Ulchmond convention which are quietly bin
nevertheless severely criticized by member
of the order In PHUburg. Thomas A. Ann
strong says : "The plea lu behalf of the an
nrchists Is very much out of place. It Is i
disgrace to the order and Is not In accord vvltl
the sentiments of a majority of the members
We have nothing In common with anarchists
no more than we have with murderers , am
the line should be clearly drawn. The nn
arotusts of the country will construe tin
net ion of the Klchmond convention to mcai
that the knights are Inclined to sympathize
with them. It demonstrated one thing , thi
Homo clue element which ruled the 8 onven
tlon and which passed the resolution jester
day is more or less In sympathy with the an
nrchistic element. This faction will not tx
allowed to prostitute the noble purposes o :
the order. Reports from the Richmond con-
yentlon showed that there was war in tin
ranks , and it will continue until semi
wrongs are righted. " Mr. Armstrone voicet

Much has been said ot the nttltudo which
the republican party sustains to the question
of submitting a prohibitory amendment to
thepcoDta. In the bill of rights which was
reserved to'the people when the constitution
was framed , the power of amending the con
stitution Is expressly specinod , and they
should not be robbed ot that rlcht I gc
even further than tne convention did when
it announced itself in iavor of submitting
the question to the people for a vote , and
say that the people have tfie right to vote on
nny and nil questions which nffeet their
rlehts as citizens of n Rteat government. The
icpublican party favors the education of the
masses at the public expense. It has placed
itself so upon the recoul by Its advocacy
of the policy embodied in what is known
its the Ulalr educational bill. This was

n renll/cd. On Mondiy night a spark
from an engine on the Hew Jeisey Southern
railroad started a contlagiation that has
Inco been sweeping through nmu > thousand
acres of land In Atlantic and Hurllngton
counties , and doing Incalculable damage to
the trrow Ing trees nnd cranberry boas.
When tlio nlarm was given the lire tmd at
tained considerable headwav and was sweepIng -
Ing with rcilstli" force In the direction of
Taunton mm Medford , The lire near Herlln
was stopped beloie It had done much dam
age , but atterwards broku out afresh and
made its appearance on the borders of Ulrch's
cranberry bos. It then swerved nrounu as
the wind changed and moved In a northerly
direction toward the extensive bo s of
Josepn Hlndimin. A lire brigade was sent to
the icene , and another contingent kept back
to guard the buildings nnd storehouses
from a tire In the rear. The long drought hail
dried up the sipnngs-and water-courses , nnd
tho' ground ivas as dry ns tinder. The only
way to head off the flames vvns by back-thing
or cutting down the undcibrush and digging
a trench , which In several instances was
successful and sived manv valuable cian-
bcrry bogs fioin dcstiuction. The weiry
file lighters had to be relieved nmeral times
during Tuesilav nUht. At n little illitanco
from the scene nbioid sheet of llamo could
beci'ii above the tn'o tops , advancing with
staitling rapidity , and accompanied by n roar
like that of a cataract. The wind canlcd a
shower of sparks which set tiio to the woods
in advance , causing the hio brigade
to be constantly on the lookout
lest they should be suriounded by the llames
botoru tlie.v knew It. Once they cnmo neat
being hemmed In. and escaped almost by a
miracle. Many fo.\e3 , rabbits and other
pime were seen fleeing from the tlames , and
many were destroved. Ycslcidiy mnintnirn
party went out from Medford to relie"o the
men who had been at woric nearly all night.
and a Ftrons effort was made to get the lirr
under control , but It was not successful.
Already many valmblo cedar swamp- * have
