TIIK Hin. : | One of tlio most terrible and
injMrrious tragedies of Paris hat bad Its
latest manifestation in tills rity. On the 4th
if Ortoher Imt a richly dressed unknown
woman \VIH ; found ( lend in the Complon
lionsc , Third uvenuo and Twenty-fourth
Mit.'Ut. Un n small table nt thn foot , of the
bed stood a tumbler containing a prccn paw
tier , traces ol whleti also lingered about the
dead woman's tlyhtly closed h | > s. The body
wns elad in handsome night roliest. Two iold ;
rhifrs wnro un thu woman's lingers , one of
Ithiin pold , rounded un the outside and with
tliu maker's stamp , nml "A. C. H. ' ' on the In-
hide ; the other with a double row of twelve
turinoisiK | , one of which had been lost. The
body was removed to the morgue , and not
lii'iHK Idcnilllcil was buried in the potter's
Held. The clerks at the Compton house
hald thnt the woman hail never been there
bofoi" and that no one had any Idr.i who she
was. The initials "A. U. H. " In the rlnt-
htuml for the naino Almoiit Calvi't
HniTt'ino. It now seems certain that
the body was of a married sister of Har-
ri'ine , prnfei-t or governor of Hum , Prance ,
who was murdered iu a railway carriage on
tin' Wii.v from Paris to Hvreux , .Innnary lit ,
IM * . Not only has every attempt to dis
cover tin * murderer been discouraged and
I'ViMi obstructed by thn authorities , nut a pit
iless fate seems to have pursued all thnso
iiieinlei-M of thn ilunil fjnvurnor's family who
hhnwiMl iin.v inspiration to run his assailant
to earth. Of two surviving brothers , the
I'hler was uie.uverated in the mail house of
Mont de Vermin1 , where ho was driven to
death by brutal keepers , while the younger
wus found lifeless ono uli-'lil in a ( utter.
Tin ) handsome and vigorous father bwnmi :
suddenly ill and expired after only
a few hours sickness. Thereupon the doc
tors declared that he had died of a broken
heart. Mine. Calvet , the only sister of the
murdered prefect , disappeared from Paris
towards the end of last summer , aud friends
of the family have been informed that she
committed suicide In this city in the early
part of October. She is the suicide of the
I'onipton house.
Among th'j Krcneh bom'KOsisie , and , in
fact , nil over the continent , it is customary
lor married couples to tack thu maiden
nntno of the wife to that of thu
husband. Tlio name of M. Itarreme's brother-
in-law was Calvet , heneo they were
known us M. and Mine. Calvet-Uarrenie.
She was the lust victim , but more remain.
All the family have fallen a prey to thu ruth
less iminlerer of the populai perfect of Euro ,
ocept Mine. Harrcme , the widow , and her
lioy , a lad of sixteen , who spends his whole
time In searching the newspapers for any
mention of his father's name , anil in practis

> ' ' Yestcrday'H Session of
the Convention.
s , Nov. 17. At this morning's
Hession of the ICntghts of Labor congress the
committee on the state of the onicr % ol the
floor ahead of thu grievanca committee , and
the time was devoted to hearing its reports.
On recommendation of this committee the
treasurer was ordered to pay the delegates a
mileage on the last day o'f the session at thu
rate of 4 cents a inilo each way. A resolu
tion had been introduced to the effect that
no action should bo taken oil the question of
i.-migrution restriction. This was adversely
ruporteil , and after a lively debate , in which
the question of foreign immigration was very
thoroughly discussed , the committee report
was adopted. This settles the fact that the
general assemoly wishes sumo action taken
looking toward a restriction of foreign immi
gration , but Just what me.ins will bo taken
eannut now bo predicted. The committee on
the slate of the order still had tlio floor when
a recess for dinner was taken.
In view of tlio small sum reported in the
treasury , fears had been expressed that there
would be no money oy hand to pay the mile
ages. This morning it was announced that
$ : . , ( H)0 had been received by the treasurer
since Novombur 1 , and of this ? : ! . " > was from
new charters. A representative of glass
workers' district assembly , No. 'KX ) , an
nounced that in ease of need they had glK ( > , ( X)0 )
Irniii which the general executive board could
drawas much as needed. District Assembly
No.48 of Cincinnati nfteml fl.OOO as a gift ,
mid others volunteered various sums , making
the aggregate $ irUX ! ( . Liberal subscriptions offered by nearly every delegate. This
is regarded practically us : m indorsement of
and an expression of conlklenco in tlio admin
istration , which indicates that tlio present
general master workman's advice will be
taken , and that ho will be urged to remain In
Harry's case ciiinn up for consideration at
the afternoon session. The report of the
committee on appeals and grievances stated
that Harry was expelled for eireulatmg villi-
fying reports about bis colleagues ot the ex
ecutive brard , It reeited statements and al
legations made by Harry at various tunes.
The grievance committee , by a unanimous
vote , decided in favor of the general execu
tive board. A long debate then ensued.
CJeorgo Schilling , of Chicago , took the lloor
nnd nnido a strong speech in behalf of Hurry.
ticncral Master Workman Powderl.v made a
careful statement of his side of the case ,
The chief points were the sumo us these
nindo in his annual address. Several other
nlilo speeches lollowed , and at the end of the
debate , on roll cull , the general
executive board's actien was sus
tained by a vote of 12'J to
iil. It is claimed by several dele
gates that of thi > twenty-four not moro than
luilf adii/.en were actually Harry's ' friends ,
The remainder , Shey says , voted against the
board for legal reasons , and would support
Powderl.v on any question of policy.
Tlio Harry matter being settled , an abun
dant menus being at Iho service of the order ,
the delegates to-night are feeling much bet
ter than early in tlio week. Powdorly seems
to bo hourly growing stronger among the
delegates , Harry said to a reporter to-night
that he is greatly surprised at the action of
the general as > somuly , and said he is more
than over prepared to prove every statement
bo has made relative to tliu doings of the
general oltlcers. "Now that 1 liuvo been
denied a hearing , " wild he , "I shall take my
case lo the high court of public op'nion ' , and
believe , when the proof is known , that the
men who control tliu Knights ef Labor to
day and are living at the expense of the poor
will bo considered Iho most Infamous scoun
drels that over lived and become a stench In
the nostrils of honest men. 1 have been
twenty-two years a trades unionist and a
Knight of Labor , nnd never hud a speck of
dirt on my card. 1 appreciate my position of
being expelled for exposing their rascality.
This is all I shall say at present. 1-Yom now
on people may expect to hear from mu daily
until I have placed these men In their true
light before the public. "
Hurry has a long statement of his case ,
which ho will glvo to thu public , it is said
to be a detailed and very sensational state
ment of what ho has been charging against
tliu general olllccrs of thu order.

The Uniic < l States DuiilcH That It Has
CIIICAIIO , Nov. Hi. fSpacial Telegram to
Tin : Urn. ] The United States 'Express
people deny the statements contained in yes
terday's dispatches giving a history of the
present conflict between tlio express com
panies. They say the original cause of the
hostility of the Adams express towards the
United States express was thu occupation by
the United States express ot tlio Delaware ,
Luukawanna & Western railroad. In 18SO
the Unite.l States express was compelled by
the exactions of the Eric railroad to leave
that line , which practically cut their line oft
at Buffalo. In this dilemma they were nd-
visod by the president of the Delaware ,
Lackawanna & Western railroad that they
could occupy his line , he having no contract
wltn the local express , which then occupied
it. Upon the giving up of the Delaware ,
Lackawanna & Western railroad by the Del
aware , Lackawanna & Western cxnrcss , the
United States express occupied the line and
thus continued their through line between
New York and Chicago without interrup
tion. The canso of tlio hostility of the
Attains express to this movement was that
they were the holders of a lario amount of
stock in tlio Delaware , Lackawanna t West-
era express , and upon that express company
e-asliiK to do business by its with
drawal from the Delaware , Lacka
wanna & Western railroad , this stock
necessarily became non-dividend pitying.
From this time on , the hostility of the
Adams express to the United States has not
ceased. More than a year after the United
States occupied the Dchnvare , Lackawanna
it Western they purchased the franchise of
the Ualtimoro & Ohio express , gaining
therewith all the riglaof thn lialtimoro it
Ohio between Philadelphia and New York.
This purchase the United States express
oltlcials say added lire to the llame , although
the Adams express had voluntarily with
drawn from the Ualtimoro & Ohio some ten
years previous , and notwithstanding the fact
that they had been on jjood terms with the
Unltitnore & Ohio , its lines were
no sooner occupied by the United States than
hostilities were renewed by the Adams , with
the avowed purpose of making the Ualtimoro
it Ohio lines non-remunerative , and com
pelling the United States express to give
them up , H Is claimed by the United States
express people Unit they Imyo not violated
any of the compacts between the express
companies until after the same compacts had
beer , previously and repeatedly violated by
other companies. Thu United States people
say further that they have not withdrawn
from Dulnth , as was stated , or that the
American Express company is acting with
the Adams as against the United Status com
Hnrtliqufilce in MiiHHnolinsctta.

Twenty-live years ago the Black Hills
were a sealed book , tlio key to which
was still clutched in the blood-stained
hands of the Sioux. Twenty-live years
a 'o the latter unwillingly relinquished
his hold by signing the oft-quoted
treaty of 1808 , but , for years after that ,
the territory was regarded as a myth
by many a resident in the cast. Lying
between thu forks of the Cheyenne
river , it contains mineral dcunsitu of a
richness unsurpassed by any country in
the world , and although fifteen years
have passed since its wealth became
generally known , the verdict htill is
that ' 'the half has not been told. "
lliill'alo Gap , the old-time gateway to

Ghadron on the Fremont , F.lkhorn &
Missouri Valley railroad. H has gone
through nil the rapid changes inciden
tal to a frontier town , and has now be
come a staid business center with bright
prospects ahead in connection with the
development of the numerous marble
and sand stone quarries that surround
it. Once in awhile the spirit of
former days crops out , and only last
spring two cowboys were shot -down
by the citizens , while on one of the
raids with which they wore accustomed
to celebrate their annual pay day. It
wus the citizens of the Gap'too , that
were favored with the last look at the
bull'alo as ho used to bo , because a year
or two ago ono magnificent bull 'that
had survived the slaughter of his racp ,
wandered down to look oneo more at his
former feeding grounds , and perhaps to
search for some niato long since butch
ered. Hut foituuo ; proved unkind , as
the entire village , joined in the chase ,
and his death HCCIIQ was worthy of the
last of his race. The quarries that will
yet make the village famous are in the
first stage of development , and a trip
through any ( if tfyq numerous canyons
will show thattht ) deposits are practi
cally unlimited. Three sandstone quar

uro owned principally by the
Northwestern railroad , and the Black

duce every variety of variegated mar-
bio , but no purely white. At present
the want of facilities for transportation

A mountain of ore stands up from the
plniii , and shows on the face a vein of
some 200 feet in width , which the ex-
pertb say will average 300 pounds of tin ,
while Superintendent Sawyer says that
1 ner cent will pay. Alrenky the work
of sinking a .shaft has commenced ,
and some of the ore cx-
trauted has been fchinpodeast via Kapid
City , but not much will bo
done until the extension of the 13. A. M.
is completed at the mines. The Tin
Mountain company have a Cyclone pul
verizer in operation , and will improve
it and put in roller crushers , and have
already been hhippinjj concentrates.
The Ilarnoy Peak company has quietly
been buying up claims , and now owns
30i ) quart'/ , and 45 miles of phicorclniins ( ,
which practically ( jives them control of
the water privileges. They have in
vested about ioOO,000 and arc still pay
ing oil' bonds and buying property , be-
siiles paying about $1011,000 per year to
the men. They are also doing the
amount of work on the claims required
by law.
The tin country is in a tract of about
seventy-live miles in length by about
twenty-live miles in widtliand is prin
cipally owned by the two companies
above' named , which number among
their stockholders some of the most
practical millionaires of Chicago and
the east.
Hut the country among the foothills
has other charms , and among the prin
cipal attractions ollercd the tourist are
the Hot Springs of Dakota , which lie
in the shadow of Battle mountain , and
twelve miles from the Gap. Although
but recently known to the white man ,
their history dates back long before ,
and the Indians tell of a tierce battle
fought years ago on the crest of the
neighboring mountain to es
tablish the Sioux in undisputed
possession. Traces of fortilleations still
show where the defeated Choyennes
made their last unavailing stand , and
are among the sights shown to the
tourist. Although the springs wore
ceded by the Indians in 1H78 , they re
tained possession of them until iSSl ,
when a company took them , purchased
the water rights n id built the present
largo hotel , which is run as both a sum
mer and winter resort. There is one
pccularity about the water , and that is
the temperature , which ranges from
! Mi ° to 118 ° , and is just about blood heat
of the human body. Visitors are shown
an old Indian bata tub , hollowed out of
the solid rock , in the shape of u moccasin
sin , and if their fancy calls , they arc
permitted to bathe in the clear warm
water that still gushes into it. Among
the residents of Omaha registered at
the hotel during the recent month of
August , wore IJ. P. Turner , II. P. Hal-

Returning from the Springs and
leaving Buffalo Gap once more , the as
pect of the country changes , us the
route continues northward. HillBiippear
more frequently grow larger , and are
crowded into groves of iron wood , rock
elm and ash. First scon in the dis
tance , they grow closer and closer to
the track , until they form one contin
uous wall in which the pine tree takes
the ulaco of the smaller growth , and
with its bombro foliage gives to the
hlllb the aspect that has won for them
the nnmo of the Black Hills. Rapid
City , Fort Mead and Sturgis arc paused ,

of the line is reached at a distance ot
5S5 miles from Omaha. All three towns
are booming , and bid fair for future
growth , but Whitewood being the ter
minus for the present , enjoys additional
advantages. Twelve miles 'from Whitewood -
wood , lies Dcadwood , hidden among the
hills and reached only by a line of tallyho -
ho coaches. For the first few miles the
road is through the choking diiht of a
bandy surface , broken occasionally with
an abrupt ascent , followed by a deeper
decent , where the rock formation
breaks through the level of the. plain.
Kadi one seemy higher than the other ,
and then the road winds upward
through groves of second growth
trees , which again give place to
the pine , and the dust seems
hidden by their dense shade.
Patches of farming land break
tlio monotony of the sceneand give evi
dence of heavy returns for the labor ex
pended , but they too are passed , the
hills become more jagged , and at last
the coach is winding around a narrow
r -id , in which thodcpths of the ravines
below can only be guagcd by a glance at
the hill tops above. A missing bolt , a
false stop , or a frightened team , and no
power on earth could save the traveler.
Gradually the green pine gives place to
the deadand on all sides can be seen the
withered trunks of what was once
a forest , but now fails even to hide the
barren rocks from which they had
sought nutriment. Higher and nar
rower grows the road , until the passen
ger .silently wonders what would happen
hhould another team be met. One
comes , and the drivers shout each other
directions , while the facinated traveler
ga/es against his will into the abyss
below. Not a rail , not a guard , noth
ing , between him and death , only the
man who handles the lines with.such
apparent carolessm s. Another turn is
made , and away , hundreds of feet be
neath him , he sees the village ho hr.s
come ho far to see Deadwood. But he
does not reach 11 for a half an hour. H
seems close enough to strike with
a pebble , but the road to roach
it , is long and winding. Itcreeps down
ward .and ono after iinoUicrbright-look
ing villu cottages stand on the side of
the hill above it , and the driver says it
is F.liznbothtown. Furthoi- down the
houses wear a di Huron I appearance ,
their rough , nnpuintcd sides and small
windows lulling of early days among
the mines , while the almond eyes anil
long-tailed queus of the occupants
speak "Chinatown" ho fora the driver
has a chance to say it. Then the decent
becomes more gentle , stores crop out ,
and , almost before you know it , a long ,
narrow street oiiens out , lined with
business blocks that would be a credit
anywhere , but seem strangely out of
place in the heart of the hills , and after
a brisk spurt the stage suddenly stops
and leaves you in the main thoroughfare -
faro of Deadwood.
Situated as it is , at the bottom of a
canyon , through which a shallow brawl
ing stream rushes between banks made
level by the placer mining of other
days , it isan ideal mining village. One
narrow street forms the business centre ,
and the residences overlook the town
from various degrees of altitude ,
perched in impossible looking places
that scarce afford a foothold to
the trees that shade them. Across
tlio creek tower the precipitous White
Rocks , on the ldo of which is the little
vlllngo graveyard. The white stones
that mark the resting-place of many an
early pioneer , can bo MICH from the
streets below , and a closer view shows
that the shallow graves blasted out of
the rock are the restlng-placoR of men
who died in their prime. Wild Bill ,
whoiio fume rang over the entire terri
tory , lies there shot by.IohnnioMcC'aul ,
whoso brother hud full tin at the hands
of Bill , and who ended his days on the
Only a few years old , Deadwood has a
history. Settled by the Gay boys in ' 74-
75 , their trail was soon followed by
others who worked the placer diggings
or left their mark in the numerous pros
holes thnt yet line the base of
the eliiTsi , while the original discover
ers wandered further west , unmindful
of the wealth they had left behind.
Then came the days when , for
months at a time , no'communication
could bo had with the outsldo world
through the bands of ho.-tilo
Sioux that surrounded the hnrdy minors.
Singes wore waylaid , the pnssengorrt
massacred nml the mules driven away ,

Chicago Times : Mary Anner nml
Lulu Carr. aged respectively eighteen
and sixteen years , of Putorson , X. .1. ,
will long remember a perilous ndvon-
turo whloll occurred about three miles
south of Nyuc while they were chest-
nutting , 'i'he girls oamo up to visit
some friends in this neighborhood on
Saturday , and , as the chestnut erop is
larger tills vear than over before , they
decided to form a small detachment ot
the large army of chestnut gatherers
who are out in the woods daily. They
concluded that the most certain way for
them to Hud nuts would he to leave the
\\oll-bontcn paths and strike , out into
the woods whore it was the wildoM and
least traveled. They sought the most
unfrequented part of the South Moun
tain.tripping gnylj along over the rocks
and through the tangled briars. Pres
ently they saw a group of ehot-tnuti
trees standing together , their tops being -
ing nearly covered with partly opened
"Oh , Mary. " shouted l.uln. gleefully ,
"here's the place to get all the nuts wo
want. Hurrah ! " and she gave her hat
a Iling in the air and laughed merrily.
Thev found the ground pretty well cov
ered with nuts , and soon gathered MHHO
six or seven quarts.
" 1 am going to climb up in the tree
and thrash it , Lulu , " said Mary
"Don't you do it , Mary ; you would
never get down alive. Men are the only
creatures that can climb trees.1
"Bosh ! " responded Mary. "I tun as
good as any man , and I am going to get
up in thnt'troo. "
So , notwithstanding her companion's
remonstrances. Miss Anner began her
unusual feat , and for a time it seemed
as though MIC would succeed in accom
plishing her object. Suddenly , how
ever , when she was little more than
half way to the top , a small branch on
which she placed her foot , broke. With
a scream she threw out her arms , ex
pecting to be dashed to pieces on the
ground and the rocks below. Ah she
fell she wont between two large branch
es below her and caught by her arumby
which she hunir suspended in the air.
She tried to raise her.- > elf up , but she
was unable to do so. Poor Lulu at the
foot of the tree was the more frightened
of the two , and she burst into a Hood ot
tears. "Oh , Mary will die , " shi > said ;
"she can never get down from that
place. " '
"Help ! help ! " cried Mary , her voice
getting weaker every moment.
Lulu went almost into hyMcrics , and
did not know what to do. While con
juring up some plan to rescue her
friend from her position. Lulu heard
the sound of a gun some distance away ,
and she gave ti succession of loud
screams. A moment afterward she
heard some one rushing through the
underbrush , and soon a middle-aged
man , a South Nyaek gunner , came in
sight , lie did tint have to bo told the
situation , but realized it at a glance.
Ho sprang nimbly up the tree , and by
hard e.IVorts succeeded in lifting the
young lady to the top of one of the
branches , and then assisting her to the
ground. She fainted before she was
fairly on the ground , and it took nearly
two hours to fully restore her to con
sciousness. The man then accompanied
the ladies to the place whore they were
visiting , and they will return to tlioU"
home to-morrow. It will be some time
before they will recover from the sho.'k
occasioned by their fright.

London Daily Telegraph : The Co-
logirt ! Gazette tolls an amusing story ol
the strange discovery a grenadier miido
during the maneuvers of a few weeks
ago. lie had been told oil' to rec.onoitru
for the enemy , and on his way through
a Held he stumbled over a leather ob
ject , which ho picked up and brought to
his corporal , who pronounced it to be a.
dress improver. On closer inspection it
turned out to contain a large number o
billets-doux on tinted paper , and writ
ten apparently by a student to a lady
in the far north of Berlin. The cor
poral , who was hinibolf a student going
through Ills "ono year's service1 tipped
Iho man and kept the "improver. " On
his return to Berlin he culled on "tho
lady"and had the good luck to lind her
nloiiu ; but what was his surprise to learn
that she was a school girl ot
tender years. Naturally , under the cir
cumstances , ho hesitated to give up bin
lindand hinted that the parents ought
to be told , but the fair one was so im-
portunnto in her entrciities. that ho
llnally softened. "Papa and Mamma
have'no idea of Bcnno'.s existence ;
please give it back , yi VII drive mo to
suicide , " she said , in the most piteous
way. "I have no place to put his letters -
tors BO safe as the 'improver , ' lint I lost
it last Sunday while walhini ; with
mamma and papa. You can't bollovo
the anguish 1 have sulTorod from thii '
> t
thought that some sneal ; and not an
honorable man might lind It. Please ,
please , give me my 'improver. ' " Shu
was pretty and the corporal could not
refuro any longer , and gave in. Shu
quite forgot his prohoneo , kissed thu
letters madly , and put the "improver' '
back into its place , laughing and crying
for very joy. She was lee absorbed to
thank the soldier , who , however , wan
plentifully rewarded by getting a good
story to toll at mess. ,
