Hr.iti.tN , Feb. 0. [ New York Herald
Cable-Special to the /HEE. ] Ulsmiirck's
great speech has been delivered. Ho spoke
In his best style. Hesitating , almost stut
tering , lit times , ho caino to difficult points ,
nut sliding over these snags to rush on with
on eloquent Interpretation of the political his
tory , interspersed with ironical humor. His
main point was that since 1S48 Kuropo had
been alin&st dully on the brink of n great
European war , but that -liavinfr deferred
quarreling over Important matters , it would
bo foolish now to fight about Bulgaria , a
country BO small that after the war was over
nobody would bo able to remember why they
all began to light. Ho emphasized strongly
his affectionate trust in the czar
and his Indifference to Franco and French
nttucks about Bulgaria. Ho repeated that
It belonged to Russia by conquestound must
again go under Russian Influence , but this
influence could never bo regained by nrms.
The speech most emphatically proved his
desire for peace , though its tone , or rather
accent , was decidedly that of
a man whoso temper had been
so severely strained that in this Bnmo
breath ho feels ho must show his deslro to
keep pcnco by his ability to crush nil opposl
tion. A storm of applause followed his con
cluding sentence. "Wo Germans fear God ,
but nothing else in the world. "
In impressive sllenco the leaders of all the
parliamentary parties rose each to say in
twenty words that what sacrillco of men or
money Germany demanded the Germans
would glvo without question or regrets , with
out n dissenting voice and with enthusiasm.
The now arms bill WHS voted en bloc. An
hour before the reichstag oixmtd Leipzig and
William streets , from tho.chancellor's palace
to the reichstag , were HO crowded that
the troflte had almost stopped. Bismarck
drove through the excited crowd in a closed
carriage. Prince William followed between
lines of waving handkerchiefs and hats
Moltko came last and laughed good-
humorcdly at the enthusiasm ho provoked.
Insldo every ono waited for the cnioi
actor. Bismarck stalked in and arose
abruptly to speak. Ho seemed per-
* ccptibly older than during the
Rcptcnnato debates. Ho spoke even lower
than usual , so that it was almost Impossible
to hear him. Ho began with reluctance , ns
If forced into speaking against his will and
Judgment. Ho occasionally showed his old
fierce energy. Ho spoke from notes , but
seldom referred to them. Beside him stood
a tumbler of brandy and water. Ho drank
three tumblers In the first hal
hour , then , tapping impatiently on his hal
empty glass , ho had it filled up with soda
water. The next glass was again too strong
BO ono of the cabinet ministers attempted to
replace the absent servant. Ho mixed the
grog. Bismarck tasted it , but said lin
patiently : "That Is a horrible drink. "
Tlic Iron Clmiiclllor Talks.
Br.iu.ix , Feb. 0. The announcement tha' '
Bismarck would speak on the military bil
drew u great throng of people to thorcieh
stag to-day and long be'foro the day's bus !
ness was begun the galleries were filled
Prince William , of Prussia , and Prince
Leopold , son of the late Prince Frcdericli
Charles , occupied the court box , while th
diplomatic galleries were crowded with the
different foreign representatives anil thei
Bismarck was enthusiastically greeted on
his way to the reichstag palace by a dense
crowd which lined the route. On his
rival at the reichstag , Blsmarclc was
cclvcd with deafening cheers.
The house proceeded with the first reading
of the military loan bill and Prince Bismarck
arose to address the house. Ho said : "I
do not belie-vo I can add any
thing to the true state of the
case regarding the bill. I do no
address you on that account. My object is to
speak of the general situation of Kuropc. I
may confine myself to what I said on the
name subject over a year ago. There has
been very little change since then , when I
feared war with Franco. Since then Franco
has elected n peace-loving president , and a
pacific disposition lias prevailed. I can there
fore reassure the publlo that so far as
Franco is concerned the prospect
lias become more peaceful , Regarding Rus
sia , I am of no other opinion than when I
wild that wo have to apprehend no attack
from Russia. The situation must not bo
judged from press comments. "
"Tho Russian newspapers , " continued Bis
marck , "I not believe. I bellovo the czar's
word absolutely. The situation on the whole
is not different from that of 1SVJ. I grant
that the concentration of Russian troops on
the frontier may appear serious , but I per
ceive no cause or pretext for Russian or Eu
ropean war. ! Russia has no interest to
conquer Prussia nor the Austrian provinces. '
Indeed 1 go so far in my confidence to say
that oven war with Franco would not neces
sitate war with Russia , although the latter
would eventually involve the former. It is
true that I cannot demand an explanation
from the Russian fpreign ofllco regarding the
concentration of troops upon the frontier , but
having been well acquainted with Russia's
foreign policy for a generation' I may liavo
my own opinion on the matter. I believe tho-
Russian cabinet intends to make Russia's
voice heard at the next European crisis and
therefore wishes to push her military forces
as far westward as possible. "
Bismarck proceeded to review the relations
between Prussia and Russia since l&IS and
showed how frequently they had assumed a
maimclng aspect. Ho said that at all times
the calmness and conscientiousness displayed
by the. ministers on the Prussian side toward
the threatening position of which foreign
countries hail no idea had succeeded In
"As early us tsr ; ] , " ho continued , "matters
were In such position that everybody urged
mo to advise striking a blow , t waited
quietly until wo were struck. I believe wo
did well in this. Despite all Indications of
I ? A storm , n certain feeling of tranqullity
I'J supervened owing to the intimate relations
la ' between the three emperors. Then , as now ,
| VJ. however , wo were constrained to augment
/ and organize our forces so that In case of ne-
Ify ccsslty wo might stand forth a strong nation
f'l making its power prevail by our strength and
l | | so defending its authority , its dignity and its
I J "To effect this purpose , " continued the
I f chancellor , "no sacrifice must or can bo too
Ifi heavy. The warlike tendencies of Franco
IK and Russia drive us to defense. The pike in
l * > France and Russia compel us to become
I jf carp. Wo are better nblo than any other
I'i ' country to offer strong resistance to our foes.
I/ Prussia him always shown herself complal-
If mint to Russia and has done Russia many
If hcrvlees for which she might claim gratitude ,
I and for which she has , in fact , received ao-
I knowledgmcnt. Prussia has nt all times
I- ' sought to maintain good relations with Rus-
I sla , although the latter left us in
I' ' the lurch at Olmuctz. I sny
I . this in order to make It clear why
I wo concluded an alliance with Aus-
trm. Wo wore Inclined to accede
I to the demands Russia uiado upon us
before last year's war in the cast. Russia
again turned to Austria , but In vain. We were
glad the storm had passed over our heads. At
the congress , which I was only nblo to bring
together with great trouble , I exerted my
self to obtain satisfaction for all Russian In
terests and carry through all Russian wishes.
I really believe I had acquired a rlirtit to Rus
sia's gratitude , but I could not and would not
give umbrage to Austria. Had I done * o wo
would have become Isolated in Europe and
completely dependent upon Russia. Some
pcoplo hnvo sought to find an ultimatum or
threat In the publication of the treaty. It Is
nothing of the kind. The treaty is
nn expression of a community of interests
of two contracting parties. This wo wished
the world to know. Not only In this treaty
but also that with Italy Is expressed common
Interests , and common interests avert com
mon dangers and maintain peace. Austria
followed this thoughtful policy In IfjTO In re
sisting the entreaties of Franco to come for
ward against the Germans. Austria is your
natural ally In the dangers which threaten
us from Russia and Franco. But there is no
fcnr of the hatred of Russia. No wars are
waged for mere hatred , for otherwise Franco
would have to be at war with Italy and the
whole world. The strength wo possess
will reassure our public opinion ,
and the nervousness of the bourse
and . the press. Our task is to
strengthen this strength. Wo must , of
course , have the best of weapons for the
fathers of families who will have to servo
under the present bills , with the aid of which
wo shall bo able to place a million good sol
diers on each of our frontiers. Behind them
stand our reserves. It must not bo said that
others can do the samo. That Is just what
they cannot do. Wo have material not only
for forming an enormous army , but for fur
nishing it with officers. Wo have n corps of
ofllccrs such ns no other power has. When
wo undertake war it must bo n people's war ,
which all approve , as in 1S70. If wo are at
tacked , then the "furor Teutonics" will
llutiio out. No one will make headway
against that. Neither the consciousness
of our strcngtli nor the hoiio of
Ictories can restrain us from continuing our
icacefnl efforts. Wo have endeavored to
lalntaln our old relations with Russia , but
vo do not run after any country. With re
gard to Bulgaria , wo have remained per-
"cctly consistent. Russia certainly lias every
'cason ' to feel grateful for the loyal attitude
if Germany on the Bulgarian question. Wo
> lnco our reliance on the strength of our
, rmy. If we have no cause to use it , all the
jctter. but wo must make our arrangement
ivith the idea that wo arc to use it. Wo Ger
mans fear Cod and nothing else in the world ,
The fear of God make ds wish to foster
icaco. Ho who breaks the peace will ur-
rive at the conviction that the warlike
and cxultu&t love of the Fatherland ,
such as summoned the whole population of
'russin to arms in ISlii , is a common posses-
ion of the entire German nation , and ho who
ittacks will find it armed to n man , every
man having in his heart a firm belief that
od is with us. "
The speech occupied nn hour and forty
minutes. Bismarck was frequently inter
rupted by tremendous applause , and his
appeal to "furor Teutonics" was particularly
The loan bill was referred to the budge
committee , and on motion of Dr. Franken
iteln the landwohr bill in its entirety was
lasscd to n second reading.
Bismarck left the house at the close of the
sitting and walked homo , accompanied by n
cheering crowd , who , in defiance of the ef
forts of ths police , surrounded him on all
sides. The chancellor appeared to enjoy
rattier than resent the compliments of the
people. The reichstag will resume the quin
queuu'al parliament bill to-morrow.

LONDON , Feb. 0. [ Now York Hcralc
Cable Special to the BEE. ] M. B. Lowitz ,
in the Times tills morning , gives a full ex
planntion of the difficulty of Franco and
Russia making nn alliance treaty thus :
The movement of Russia towards Franco ,
in splto of their profound political antag
onism , evidently proves that Russia docs no
desire to contend with the two allied empires
should she remain alone , and as it is now
shown that she was acquainted with thi
treaty that explains why , in the lasi
resort , before taking a decision , sh
has made a great effort by self-
estraint to bring herself closer to Franco ,
The question is tills : Will Franco enter will
Russia a treaty alliance similar to thatwhlcl
has just been published ? It may bo confl
dcntly answered , she will not. By artiol <
80 of the constitution of July 11 , 1STO , tin
president of the republic negotiates and rat
flcs treaties. Ho makes them known to th
chambers as soon as the interest and safet ,
of the state permit. Article 31 says the pres
ident cannot declare war without the previous
vious consent of. the two chambers. On th
discussion M. Laboulago said , with the en
tire approval of the whole house : "What
wo ask is that no war should be undertaken
without the knowledge of Franco. "
A treaty alliance bctwceirtho president of
the republic and any power comd not bo
definite unless ratified by the chambers.
What could Russia do to negotiate an alliance
with Franco ? She could secretly enter on
negotiations with the president of the repub
lic ; latter ho would send for his minister of
foreign affairs , there would bo a discussion
and eventually a treaty bo signed , but it
would have to remain n secret until the
interest and security of the state allowed the
president to submit it to parliament.
The two parties would bo in u very diffec-
cnt position. For Russia the treaty would bo
definitive immediately on being' signed ,
whereas for Franco it would bo definitive
until approved by the chamber , on which , in
any case , depends voting subsidies. The
nature of the republican constitution .pre
cludes the idea that parliament or the country
would forgive u citizen , oven were ho her
president , who signed a secret alliance bind
ing the nation without Its consent. Nobody ,
moreover , acquainted with President Arnot ,
can bellcvo him capable of signing such a
treaty without the knowledge of parliament.
It is said , indeed , but by Russians , that
were Russia and England involved in a war
the popular movement in Franco would
coerce the government , despite all constitu
tional impediment. Even if this is the
opinion of Russia she runs the risk of gross
miscalculations. Pcoplo have learnt hero
the weight of the stake and chances. Now ,
the risk would not bo equal for the two par
ties In case of defeat. Russia might lose the
Baltic provinces , which intelligent Russians
would like to bo rid of , together with Rus
sian Poland , which many patriotic Russians
consider an ineuinbrancc. After this she
would resume her rank. Jf victorious , her
eastern dream , which dazzles yet worries her ,
would open up. i
To France , on the other hund , war would
bo a question of lifo and death and nothing ,
In case of victory , would bo an equivalent to
the states , and the French government
would have the patriotiu courage to with
stand the pressure of the mob. Moreover
1SSS does not resemble 18TO. Experience
would weigh , even with the mob. In ISTO of
ten men who shouted , "A Berlin I" nlno were
certain of remaining quietly In Paris ,
whereas with the present military system the
prospect is Just the reverse and even the
most heated would reflect when they them
selves wore concerned Instead of others.
Not withstanding the efforts of Russia I be
lieve Franco will remain quiet awaiting nn
opportunity for revenge without risking her

CITV , Neb. , Feb. 0. [ Special
Telegram to the Bnn.J Particulars of a
rather- tragic affair which occurred on the
bottoms near Hamburg , la. , lute baturday
night or rather early Sunday morning ,
reached this city to-day. For some time
past fanners in the vicinity of Hamburg ,
especially those living north on the river
bottoms , have been losing hogs by thieving.
The thieves would go Into the pens , slaughter
the hogs and carry off the meat. In a num
ber of cases the thieves wore so considerate
as to divide the hog and leave half for the
owner. The farmers have kept sharp look
out for the thieves , but until Saturday night
have been unable to catch them. A farmer
named Ticson particularly suffered from
these depredations , which were generally
committed on stormy nights. Saturday night
young Ticson , with a double-barrelled shot
gun and revolver , was on watch for the
thieves , and was rewarded some time after
midnight by discovering the approach of a
team and two man. Ono carried a hatchet ,
and the other had a butcher knife. They
hitched to the fence , went direct to the hog
pen , struck a largo hog on the head with the
hatchet , and proceeded to disembowel him
Tierson waited until they had finished their
work , when ho arose and , with tlio shotgun
pointed toward them , told them to throw up
their hands. They did not obey his com
mand , but made a move ns if they , too , were
armed. Tieson then fired both barrels , the
bullets striking a man named Holt on the
left side of the head , killing him Instantly.
His partner , n man named Rampo , started to
run , and Tiorson called to him to halt ,
but ho would not , so fire was
opened on him with a revolver. Rampo
was shot twice , ono bullet taking effect In
the arm and the other passing through the
stomach. Rampo did not stop running until
ho became entangled in n barb wire fence ,
and then surrendered.
Up to this tlmo Tieson did not know
whether ho had shot the first man or not , but
after securing his prisoner went into the pen
and found Holt lying dead close to the hog ho
had just killed. The body was cared for.
Rampo was put into a wagon and taken to
Hamburg. Ticson accompanied him and
surrendered to * nn officer , telling what ho
had done. The oftlccr told him to go homo
and when ho was wanted ho would scud after
The coroner held an inquest yesterday aft
ernoon and Ticson was completely exon
erated. Ho is an honest , hard-working-young
man and his way of dealing wkh the two
thieves is endorsed by the community nt
large. One thing sure , ho has the law on his
Holt and Rampo were both residents of
Hamburg and each has a family. They were
engaged in no business , worked but little and
since their tragic end it is thought they .stole
for a llvlihood. Saturday night both men
were present nt the revival meeting and eacli
offered a fervant prayer and those presenl
say none could yell louder than those two.
After the meeting they hitched up their team
and went on their stealing expedition. Th
latest report says Rampo cannot possibl )
live. 'Both men have wives and sbvcca !

Senator Ingalls says Micro is only a llttlo
truth In the story started by the Now York
Herald that ho refused to appoint on the
Pacific railroad committee the men nomi
nated by the democratic caucus. Ho says ,
too , that the story in 591110 paper that Sen
ator Stanford tried to influence the appoint
ments is also untrue. Mr. Stanford never
approached him on the subject nor communi
cated with him , and the fact Is that all the
pressure brought to bear upon him came from
enemies of the railroads , from the men who
want the property confiscated , and It appears
that Senator Beck was ono of these. There
wits no caucus action by either party. Mr.
Beck , however , assumed the responsibility of
handing three names to Mr. Ingalls. They
were these of Senator Cockerill , Harris and
Gray. Mr Ingalls asked if they caino from the
democratic caucus. Mr. Beck said no ,
that they were his personal selections.
Although Mr. Beck had no more right to
assume the prerogatives of the president of
the senate than any other man , Mr. Ingalls
thought well of his suggestions , and invited
both Senators Cockorill and Gray to accept
jilaccs on the committee , but both begged off.
That is the history of what the Herald Is
trying to inflate into a big scandal. I asked
Mr. Beck for his version of the matter to
day , but ho declined to say anything and
seemed to bo pretty badly out of sorts. Mr.
Ingalls had great difficulty in making up the
committee. Ho wanted to appoint men who
would como to some sort of an agreement ,
who would befall * to both the railroads and
the government , and the majority of tbo
committee nro sucli men. Ho thought the
Pacific coast should bo represented , as It lias
rnormous Interests Involved , and Senator
Hearst was the only man ho could mime , for

The following invitation , printed upon a

STATISTICAL DODOE WILL SOT UK HEMOVED.
I asked Mr. Colcman , the commissioner of
agriculture , if he intended to remove Mr.
Dodge , the statistical ! of the department , as
demanded by 100 members of congress , who
were aggrieved by the lattor's report on the
tobacco crop last summer. Ho answered my
question by asking ono :
"What"would you do about It ? "
I told him it depend entirely upon circum
stances. If Dodge had proven inefficient or
careless I should remove him , but if ho was
efficient and I had faith in him I should not.
"That , " replied the commissioner ex
actly what I think about it. I believe Air.
Dodge is an able , accurate and conscientious
htatistican. Ho has had the opjwrtunity to
make lots of money by manipulating his crop
reports during the twenty years or more
ho has been in , the position
ho holds , but he would rather be "right than
bo rich. Such men are scarce , and I think I
had better hold on to him , although ho may
make a mistake once in a while. I am of the
opinion , too , that it was not so much his mis
take as that of the men from whom the in
formation camo. The matter has been thor
oughly investigated and I am convinced that
Mr. Dodge's reports , which are so much com
plained of , were Justified by the information
ho received from the agent of the department
in the house. Ho cannot personally count the
number of tobacco fields in the United States
nor measure their dimensions. He must rely
upon the information ho receives from the
tobacco growers throughout the country and
tlio agents of the department from their
estimates. That is what ho did and it was
accurate and conscientiously done. "
From this it would seem that Mr. Colcman
will not remove his statistician even at the
demand of one-third of congress.
CONNECTICUT WANTS SH CHID AN.
Ex-Speaker John A. Tibbetts. of the Con
necticut legislature , is at Willard's. To a
Critic reporter ho talked freely about politi
cal affairs in his'state.
"How strong Is Blalno in Connecticut ? "
asked the reporter.
"Blaino is perhaps as strong as he ever
was in Connecticut , but some of his friends
think it is a question whether ho should bo
nominated unless ho can bo elected. Ono
thing , however , is certain in the convention
this year Connecticut will , not vote on nlr.
By that I mean that our delegates
will not waste their votes in supportIng -
Ing a favorite pen by a complimentary
vote when there is no chance of the favorite
son being nominated. Heretofore Connecti
cut has done that and the consequence has
been that she has not had much national im
portance. Now wo will wait until some ono
else endorses our favorite son and then
follow. You see , being placed alphabetically
nearly at the head of the list , wo have the
chance to lead the break at the right mo
ment , and if wo do are entitled to homo
rcognltion for it. I don't want to bo under
stood as implying that Connecticut will not
support Senator Hawley as loyally as ever ,
because she will , but there is no use of our
sticking to him when it is evident he cannot
bo nominated. "
"Who is the strongest man tlio republicans
can nominate i"
"There is ono man who , if tlto republicans
nominate him , can bo elected without a
shadow of a doubt. Ho would sweep the
country like a whirlwind. His name is Gen
eral Phil Sheridan , and no ono the democrats
could nominate would bu able to touch him.
Why , every Irishman and ovoiy old soldier
would vote for him , which would make a
powerful combination. "
"What would bo the platform ? "
"Anything. That wouldn't make any dif
ference. 'Sheridan and Shenandoah' would
bo all the platform wo should want , and as
for the tail of the ticket , why ono man would
do us well as another. "

The Directors Meet nnd Accept Vice-
President Camp's Kcsiguntion.
CINCINNATI , Feb. C. The Metropolitan
bank directors hold a session this morning at
10 o'clock. Pending the meeting the pay meat
of checks was suspended , and a long line of
depositors gathered. In a few minutes , how
ever , the payment of checks was resumed.
The directors are still in session and what
has been transacted is not yet known , except
that Vice President Do '
cept Camp's resigna
tion has been accepted and Louis Krohn
has been chosen in his place. Bank
Examiner 'Sanders is at the bank , but says
ho is too busy to say anything for the benefit
of the public.
President Means , referring to the stoppage
of payments , says there was no order for it
and that ho did not know there was any sus
pension. Ho supposes the story must have
arisen from some accidental delay at the
payers' desk , as no order for suspension was
There was moro than the usual demand
upon the Metropolitan bank all day , but at
the closing hours it was only $10,000 behind.
While bankers ugreo that tlio Metropolitan
is solvent , the recognized fact is that it could
not meet every possible demand during the
day , ao eight of the banks loaned $25.000 each.
Other offers were declined. The objection
made to Decamp , tlio retiring vice-president ,
was that lie had been speculating too much
in real estate.
Later Tlio Metropolitan National bank
directors passed resolutions to-night to sus
pend. Tlio bank is now in the bauds of the
government. Vice-President J. R. Decamp
has been arrested.
At the close of business to day the di
rectors felt confident of pulling- through
sTifcly. The united banks had given them
$200,000 during tlio day and voted $ . " 0.000
moro to help them to-morrow. This evening ,
however , while the directors were in session ,
n United States deputy marshal stepped in
and arrested tlio late vice president ,
J. R. DeCamp. The charges against
him were certifying to false state
mcnts of the December condition
of the bank. This attracted tho'nttcntion of
tlio united banks and they' nt once withdrew
the proposition to furnish $50,000 , nnd said
they would not help the Metropolitan any
moro. The directors immediately resolved
to suspend and go into liquidation. The
affairs of the bank were nt once
turned over to Government Examiner
Sanders. > The next step will bo the
appointment of a receiver. The trouble is
traced to tlio increase of stock from $500,000
to $1,000,000 , the issue being to holders of
stork nt 20 per cent premium , which was
utilized as a surplus fund. A largo part of
this Increase was paid for in notes , The
placing of stock in various banks gave rise to
suspicion , "and to sustain its market status
the directors were compelled t buy in con
siderable quantities. The tight money mar
ket at the close of the year forced the bank
to carry a load tnut wiis lee heavy and tlio
other troubles grow out of reports as to tlio
speculation of some of the officers. It is saiil
that other arrests will bo made.

BUFFALO , N. Y. , Feb. 0. Robert Taylor ,
iged eighteen , who drives the delivery wagon
'or the Pioneer eo-opcrativo grocery store ,
was driving down Michigan street on his last
trip , and the snow and rain were falling fast ,
naklug oven the air a good clectrio conduc
tor. As ho reached Eagle street his horse
suddenly dropped ns If'shot , and at the same
nstnnt ho received a heavy electric shock
; hrough the wet reins. Ho recovered from
t in a moment , but did not understand what
md happened to him or realize what ailed
us horse. Supposing tlio animal had stu
pidly stumbled ho seized his whip and struck
: iim n sharp blow with it. This tlmo ho got
[ jack such a shock through the whip that ho
lay for some moments unconscious.
A colored man , who had been standing on
the crossing watching the queer proceedings ,
now came up , assisted the boy , and offered to
help him get the horse on its feet , but the
moment ho touched the animal hugnvonnun-
earthly yell , fell forward upon the horse , gave . -
one more scream , then lay still forever.
Some men In a saloon heard the yelling , butL
afterward said they thought it was a murder ,
and that they had best not get mixed ut ) with
it. Taylor was so hurt and frightened that ho
could do nothing , and it was not until Patrol
men Hennessey and Haley came up a cou plo of
minutes later thattho tmostatoof affairs wo
understood. They took tlio colored man oft
the dead horse and soon had him in Smith's
drugstore pouring whisky into him. Dra.
Hartley and Mulhersen came over from the
emergency hospital , n block below , hut be
fore they could get the colored man into the
hospital his heart had ceased to beat. His
watchkey mid knife wore found to bo highly
magnetized. His face was badly bloated uud
his hands were burned to the bone. Ho was
at i ! o'clock identified as Isaac Morton , n
waiter on the New York Central vestibule
train running between Buffalo and Now
York. Ho had a wife and two children liv
ing on Lafayette street in Detroit , and a
brother who holds .11 position similar to his
own on the Lake Shore road.
The Brush electric light pcoplo found that
a broken telephone wire had fallen into the
street and formed a cross with ono of tholr
wires. The telephone wires were found
tangled about the horse's feet. Ho had
stepped on them and the. powerful current
had killed him instantly , the damp snow
making the connection between the wire and
his Iron shoes perfect. The colored man may
also have received the current through the
wire , but tlio doctors think it more likely
that it came throuirh the horse , as his hands
were badly burned where ho had touched the

been attached to a discarded liurht. Instead ti
of wrapping the free ends of the wire around A *
the top of the polo , the workmen wound it
around within n few feet of the ground and
within easy reach. Several of the boys .
touched the wire with , their bare hands-Brit-
were more or less severely shocked. Finally
one of tho"iiumbor , a colored youth named
Will Somervlllo , touched It with a piece of
hoop iron about six Inches long , which ho
had picked up near by. The Instant ho did
so ho fell headlong , arose , staggered a few
steps , and fell again. Ho was picked up un
conscious and died In a few minutes. The

pany criminally negligent.
