E. Johnson last night. The murdTous work was done in Dr. W. E. Morgan's handsomely furnished office, 34 East Twenty-ninth street, near Cottajje Grove ovonuo. Tho man and his wife had boon left alono In the office for a moment, and Johnson had locked and bolted every door. Divining his intent, his wifo screamed for help, but was answered by a blow that felled her to the floor. Vain Attempt ftt Renoue. Kneeling over the prostrate woman Johnson hold hor fast. A Swwlish dirk was already open in ono han>l, and with tho other hand he slowly laid back lha folds of his wife's dross that his aim might b> sura. Men were already clamoring at his office door, called by tbo woman's fcruams. Tho door pnnels they could shatter, but the door itsulf would not givo way, and men and women stood powerless a fuw fout away while tho inunler was being committed, 1'ioinllnli Deliberation.' Moving the point of his blade slowly over tho screaming woman's breast Johnson finally c'.ioso a point just over tbo heart. Then, an Inch at a time, the knife ^vas driven in until it~waii buried fo~ the bilt. It was with- iJrawn as slowly as it had been impelled and. once more sank Into tho quivering flush. 'Six times this wns repeated, Johnson watching tins spurt of blood that followed each stroke with a critical'eye. Tboro was nu ni'rvnus- n -us; it "wns the coolness of a surged! in tho miilst of an operation. Help Come* Too Lnte. Tho tuunlerur was just rising from his kneea, knife in hand, when the door era-shod open before the shoulders of tho .now frenzied crowd. Those who were in front were thrown almost headlong into tho fast growing pools of lilooil, and jumpad back in din- m:iy. But Johnson att'mpted no rosist- 8'ice. "rtcre is my knile," ho said to Olllcor Burtol, who lorcjd his way through the throng from I he street, "fake mo to the station where I can do no more harm." Kvcrjr Thrnnt In the Heart. There was a pauso while « hasty examination was made of the woman's wounds. Each of tho six thrusts had penetrated the heart, and from tho wounds blood was flowing in streams that bespattered furniture and loft great blotches on tbe whlto surface of tho walls. As his "wife breathed her laat Johnson's face took on n look of satisfaction. "Thank ,God," he sold. "Now my family U safe. I have saved that girl's honor," The causo of the horrible deed was Insane jealousy. The man Is undoubtedly aluuatic, and all tho way to tho police station he threatened to kill himself. He is 57 years old, and his wife was about 40. THE SLAUGHTER OF NEGROES- Twenty-Two, und Probably Blore, Dead iu MlmlMlppl— Trouble* Elsewhere.

HARTSViLLit, Bucks County, Pa., Bopt 6. pj r g —President Harrison and wife, Postmaster General Wanamaker, Private Secretary Halford, and othor distinguished cillzons attended tho celebration nt the Tennont farm near here yesterday of tho establishment of the old "Log" college. The exeioisos of the day were really commemorative of tho founding of tho Presbyterian church in tho United States. Tho Log college was established In IT^'O by William Tonneut, nnd- flourished until 174:2, when Princeton college was founded, and it may be said that tho Princeton Institution of learning sprang from tho primitive college establishes! by Tenneut. When ThursJay'a celebration was first talked of, President Harrison promised to attoud, and he has kept that promise. A Ride to Remember. The presidential parly started from Mr. Wanamakor's residence at Jonkintown at an early hour in the morning, going in carriages tho eight miles between tho latter place and the scene of the ceremonies. The ride was ono continued ovation. It was entirely through a farming country, witbifa village or two on tho way. At every homestead the people hnd gathered to await the arrival of the president, mi'l the men ( women and children of each family greeted him with cheers nnd waving'of H igs and handkerchiefs, afterward getting into carriages, wagons and othor vehicles and joining tho procession. At Abington, a snmll town, there was a benntiful triumphal arch, anil here a brass band joiiird in tho welcome, while tho church bells were rung and the lionplo choereil. From this place to tho farm tho road was lined witli flags—one- cv«ry twenty feet—and threaded Its way among beautiful country residences. Arrival nt tho Fiirin. At 11:50 the proctssiou readied tho Tennent farm, where a largo tent had been erected f or tho:exercl3es.—As tha~ prfeld-mt and party entered tho tent Iho whole audi^ ?nce, numbering many thousands, arose as [no man and gave tlioin a thunderous welcome, lasting several minutos. The oxer eises hero were the reading of papers by Dr. Turner, of Hartsvillc; He\r. R M. Pat-Uininn, of Philadelphia, and others. Tlio papers 'leolt with tho founding of tho "Log" college and its influence on i'resbytcrianisni, and wore listened to with daap interest. The President It F.&oet!oll<l. Protiid' lit Harrison was then introduced aud received with vociferous applause. He said tho Presbyterian doctrine of pcrsovor- euce of tha s lints had received an illustration in the success of Ibis celebration, and persistent Pn-sbyterianism was well illustrated in Introducing him to make a speech, a thing ho never nt any time hod promised to do Ono of_th« most ombarring things a man had to encounter was to attend a celebration and associate with gentlemen whoso pockets bulged out with manuscript ad- drcssos when ono was not similarly provided. Ho thon thanked tho audience for thoir flattering recjption of himself and party; congratulated Presbytcrianism on its onward march; urged that no backward stop bo taken, and closed by hoping that each attendant of tho exorcises would carry away pleasant memories of the day. They Cheer und Gil to Dinner. Tho president was frequently cheered during his address and at its closo the 25,000 people present made tho welkin ring with their cheers, which were kept up for at least five minutes. A hymn was sung and tho party proceeded to dinner In a tent beautifully decorated with flowers. The repast was entirely informal. After Dinner Kxerclfles. Tho audience thon reassembled in tha big tent an 1 R;v. Ebonezer Erskino and Governor Beaver delivered addresses, while a letter was read written iu 1757 by Gilbert Tennent, son of the founder of the college. Postmaster General Wunamaker was Introduced amid great enthusiasm aud ap- 'plause as tha nvin to whom was duo the presence of tho president. Mr. Wanamaker humorously waiveJ that honor, and declared that his business no w was to carry letters, and ho had merely carried the lot- tors betwoon tho rommitteo and tho president. Ho closed bia address with a suggestion that t ;e old Log college be rebuilt lu "a form as'UBarly resomblin'g" tUo origlhanrs™ possible, as a' mxnorlil of • Tjimsnt, \Vhit- flold, and tho early Presbyterluu heroes. President Knox, of Lafayette college, and others, also spoke. RJV. J. W. Scott, tho venerable father-in-law of Mr. Harrison, pronounced the benediction, and tho large assembly dispersed. The Return to Jenklntuwn. Tho president's return trip to the postmaster general's country house was accomplished without special incid'iit. There .were enthusiastic crowds all along the route. Last evening the president and a few friends were guests of Mr. Wunamaker nt dinner. W. W. Phelps, G."W. Chillis, Elliott P. Shepord, Governor Beaver, Thomas Dolan, and others were present. The president left Philadelphia at 11:15 a. ra. to day for Washington. Mrs, Harrison remained the guest of Mrs. Wanamaker until Monday. FOOD FOE FLAMES. Rages in a Great of Lumber.

Tbe fact of tho matter is tlmt Post-muster (jeueral Wananiuki.T ban an id- j a that ho can utilize his free delivery syst.'in to advantage iu bundling and dolivurinj messages. "I do not think that such a thing is possible," said Mr. Green, "as I am not aware that it is his intention of employing a sopanite fore.) to transact tbe telegraph - portion of tbo busi- nasa— 1 believe lie lisa lalk»tl-with other-telegraph moil besides mybolf." GcnoVal Scupo of tho Fhkii. Dr. Green said tint it was tbo intention of Mr. Wauainak'-r to connect all tlio pnsloHic.'S in tbe country, and receive ami deliver iu l s- sages just tho same as a telegraph company. Tbe idea was to obtain thuso wires Ironi tbo tologruph company and pay tbo company a [R'rcentugB of the n-C'ipts from tho business handled. Tho Western Union would continue bus'noss at tbo old stnnd, und one of tho advantages to thum—if tbc< arran^oment is completed—will bo tbo saving of terminal expenses. Tbo postollli 1 > telegraph dopart- nient would of course endoavor to do tbo business at a lower rate than that which is now charged, but bo had no feat of this competition, and, in fact, seemed to ignore outirely tbo Idea that tbo government would successfully cope with his company in tbe telagra'ph fluid. Dr. Groon did not think that they would get any business except in places wuuru tlio Western Union bad no of- ilco, and very littlo tbero. Tbo services, he thought, would bo^s >cond class.
