KELLER Tailor 311 Market Street THE DKAJ) FISAXCIKR. WASHING TOX, Jan. 31.—The President and the members of his Cabinet assembled at the Baltimore & Ohio railroad • station Friday, afternoon at 4:15 o'clock for the purpose of receiving- the remains of Secretary Windom. The remains were brought in a special car attached to the reg-ular train leaving Jersey City at 11:30 o'clock and arriving 1 in Washington at 4:30 o'clock. The train arrived promptly on time and was received by a most distinguished assemblage, including all the leading- public officials in Washington. All the bureaus, divisions as branches of the Treasury Department were represented.by their principal officials and many of the clerks and subordinate employes. These all assembled at the Treasury Department at 4 o'clock and proceeded to the railroad station in a body. The Presidential .party consisted of the President, Vice-President Morton, Secretary and Mrs. Elaine, Secretary Proctor, Postmaster-General Wanamaker, Secretary Noble, Secretary Rusk, General Schofield' and Solicitor-General Taft. The entire party, headed by the President and Mr. Blaine, proceeded 9s the end of the platform and stood with heads tin- covered while the casket containing the remains were removed from the car and taken in charge by eight members of Company B of the Treasury National Guard in uniform, under Lieutenant Moore, and borne slowly to the hearse. Attorney-General Miller, Secretary Tracy, Solicitor-General Hepburn and the committee of the New York Board of Trada who accompanied the remains from New York were among the first passengers to alight from the train. They immediately joined the group surrounding the President. The committee was composed of Am- .brose Snow, Darwin JJ. James, James Talcott, JbVB. Thurber, W. H. Wiley, Seth Thomas and Norman S. Bentley. A procession was formed and moved cmt of the station, headed by the body-bearers with the casket on their shoulders, and ending with a long line of Treasury officials numbering several hundred. Carriages were provided for all. and the cortege, he.aded by mounted policemen, moved slowly by way of Pennsylvania, Vermont and Massachusetts avenues to the Secretary's residence. The bearers carried the remains into the house through a crowd of people, who reverently bared their heads as the casket passed. The President and all his official family followed the remains into the house and waited in the back parlor, while the undertaker and his assistants placed the body in the front rrom and opened the lid of the casket so as to expose to vie'w the Secretary's familiar features. ' Mrs. Elaine remained with the President, and was the only lady present when the latter and all the members of his Cabinet and the others who had accompanied the remains from the station were ushered into the room and looked upon the face of the distinguished dead. When the party left the house the bereaved widow and her daughters entered the room where the remains were and remained there for a few minutes. WASHTXGToy, Jan. Si. —The arrangements for the funeral of the late Secretary Windom are as follows: "Private services will be held at the Windom residence at 11:1;") a. m.

' By direction of the Postmaster-Gen eral all postmasters are authorized to close their post-offices as far as practical on Monday next, between the hour: of 11 a. m. and 2 p. m., during the funeral service of the late Secretary Windom. Gossip about -the successor to Secretary Windom includes the naro.es of Ing-alls, Spooner, McKinley and Tracy, the theory in regard to Tracy being that he will be transferred from the Navy Department to the Treasury in order to satisfy the demand of New York, and the Navy Department b« given to some Western man. •V A BLOODY FEUD "BEGUN.

Va., says: What promises to be a serious mountain war began Wednesday night in Doddridge County. A man named Perkins, of Rulings Mills, was arrested charged with sedu*.ion. • A mob, headed by Mose Smith, attacked tha officer and liberated the prisoner. The officer •tt'ent to West Union, secured warrants for the ringleaders, summoned a large posse and returned to the mountain, snrroun'ded the house in which the leaders had taken refuge and demanded a surrender. On/ being refused, they opened fire and fatally shot Smith and his son-in-law. Cotterell. The fire was returned, killing Chief Deputy Goskins. Smith's son, a boy aged 13 years, attacked Deputy Hamsay. cutting him severely. Smith - was. finally captured and taken,in a wounded condition to the prison, but Perkins was not recaptured. Fifteen warrants were issued for the parties connected with the riot, <incl the sheriff, accompanied by many assistants, left Friday to endeavor to. execute them. .It is reported that the mountaineers are gathering' to resist the officers.

Jan. 31.—A tremendous sensation h;is been caused here by what in ay turn out to be a revolution against tljj'authority of the Government. Three regiments of infantry, 'comprising- a portion of the garrison, have openly, revolted. The remainder of the garrison, including the municipal guard, remains loyal to the Government. The population of Oporto hold aloof from the movement at present. It is alleged that the object of the mutineers is 1 to establish a Portuguese Republic. The rebels and loyalists' are as this" dispatch is sent fighting in the streets. Rumor has it that many have been killed on both sides. Citizens are barricading- their houses, and the report is circulated that Government troops are being sent in haste from several points to this city.

Ind., Jan. 31.—One of the mos* horrible outrages that have beea committed by the infamous White Caps of Harrison and Crawford counties occurred Thursday night about thirty miles southwest of this citv. Jacob Perew, a poor but industrious and upright farmer, had gone to Leavenworth, the county seat of Crawford County, to visit his aged father, who was ill, leaving his wife and four small chiidren home, intending to remain a,way all night. At mid' night a gang of twenty masked men rode up to the Perew dwelling, and dismounting marched into the yard and up to the door and demanded admission. Mrs. Perew had retired, .and refused to open the door. Then the White Caps, after firing 1 several shots from their revolvers, procured a rail, and with it battered down, the door and entered the house. Mrs.^Pere* had left her bed as had her four*]rttle children, and when the^ savage brutes entered the children were clinging in terror to their mother, weeping and begging piteously that . the men would not hurt them or their mother. But the merciless AVhite Caps seized the helpless woman, tore the shrieking children from her, dragged her from the house and to a strip of woods on the opposite side of the highway, where they tied her face foremost to a tree, and with stout switches literally laid the flesh open, from her shoulders to her hips. No fewer than forty licks were given the helpless woman, the blows . being i-ained upon her after she had sunk in a.faint against the ropes that bound her to the tree. While this awful scene of demoniac savagery was going on tho four children of the wretched woman stood by weeping, and wringing their, hands, and imploring the cowardly brutes to desist. Finally these torturers left Mrs. Perew apparently in a lifeless condi- tk». After they had gone the children went to the house and got a knife, with which they cut the ropes that bound their mother, and finally- succeeded in getting her to the house.. She will probably not recover from the awf nl torture she passed through. The villainous White Cafps told the children that they had whipped their mother because she was not virtuous, hut all her refawyes agree, as do all who know her, that she is a woman of. unspotted character. In all the history'of .White-Capism in Harrison and Crawford Counties the whipping of Mrs. Perew is the vilest, the most brutally savage crime they have committed. The law is powerless against these human fiends. Grand juries fail to'.indict them, or. where in- the Lrwtis respected and enforced,, At Butte, Mont.r Thursday night the dry-goods house of James R. Boy**, Jr., & Co., made an assignment with, liabilities of SlOO.OOO and assets of .5125,000. The Black Diamonds, at DOLAN'S OPERA HOUSE. Tuesday Eve.,Feb. 3. W.S.
