Daniel Lovejoy, a Prcsby- :erian clergyman, and the grandson of Frar.cis Lovejoy, who removed from Amherst, N. H., to Albion in 1VSO. when Kennebec county was still a wilderness. Elijah was the oldest of nine childern. At an early age he showed a desire for study and when 4 years old had already read the Bible and committed psalms and scriptural extracts. His esrly life was spent on the farm of his father and during this time he attended the district school a few months every year. Then he entered the sophomore class of the Wateryilie college and was graduated with the highest honors in 1S26. delivering: a poem at the commencement exercises entitled "Inspiration of the Muse." Bewail Life at St. Louis. The year following his graduation Elijah Lovejoy removed to St. Louis, where he established a school and where his contributions to the press won lor Jlim the reputation of a thoughtful a>.id earnest writer. In 1S29 he became the editor of a political paper, in which he supported Henry Clay as candidate for the presidency. He continued in journalism at this time for nearly three years, arid th^-n, as the result of a.change In his religious views, turned his attention to the ministry. He entered the Princeton Theological seminary and April 28, 1&33. finished his course. The Philadelph.-a presbytery licensed him to preach, and uur- irg the summer of 1833 he temporarily filled pulpits in New York and Newport, R.

Washington, Nov. 9.—An ooinion of the supreme court was handed down yesterday by Justice Shiras, in which the interstate commerce commission is overruled. The action was begun befora the interstate commerce commission in IS92 upon a petition from tfte board of trade of Troy, Ala., alleging a discrimination by the roads against that town in the interest of Montgomery and Other places. The roads defended their rates as necessary to meet water transportation, but the commission decide* aguinst them and also held that preference in rates should not be (flv«u except upon authority of the commission. The court overruled the commission on both points, holding first tnat competition la one of the most obvious and effective circumstances that make (.he conditions under which a long and short haul is performed substantially dissimilar. Upon the other point as to whether railroad companies caji be relieved from the operation of the long and short haul clause of the interstate commerce net without first invoking the consent of the commission. Justice Shiras said: "We are unable to suppose that congress Intended to forbid common carriers in cases where the circumstances and conditions are substantially dissimilar from making different rates until and'tfnless the commission shall authorize them to do so."

LOST THEIR LIVES IN A FIRE. Two Men and A Girl Burned to Death In a Hot Springs Blaze. Hot Springs, Ark.. Nov. 9. — A fire with frightful results occurred here yesterday morning- at 1 o'clock. Frank Kauffman, Charlie Johnson, and Clara HAD TO LEAVE THE MOCKD CITY, But Made a Fatal Mistake" in Supposing Illinois Waa .Free. Returning to St. Louis in the fall, Lovejoy, at the request of a friend, took charge of a religious paper called the Observer. In this paper he severely condemned slavery and advocated gradual emancipation of the colored race. In 1835 a letter signed by many of the racist respected men of St. Louis was sent to Editor Lovejoy requesting him to moderate the tone of his editorials regarding slavery. In an article in the Observer he replied to this communication by repeating his views, claiming a right to express them as he saw fit. But owing to repeated threats of mob violence he at last removed, his paper to Alton. Ills. This was in July, 1836. a little more than a year before his sad death. Three times within the period of a year after he came to Alton Lovejoy's newspaper plant and press were destroyed by mobs. Xov. 2, 1S37, a public meeting was held and the editor of The Observer denied before the people that he had committed any offense ar.d claimed the rights cf a citizen under the constitution. He spoke of his continued persecution and of the threats of tar' and feathers that were being made against him by those who were enemies of his policy, s.nd of the results in the minds of the people of his editorials. As he spoke of the danger to himself and to his wife and children tears filled his eyes, but he reiterated his determination of continuing as he had begun, firm in the conviction that he was right and tha^ right must prevail. A few days later he called on the editor of the Alton Telegraph and handed him a card for publication which stated that Lovejoy was weary of contention^ and in order to restore harmony had decided to sever his connection with The Observer. But before this was printed Rev. W. F. Graves, pastor of the Presbyterian church, called on him and took away the card. A fourth new press was received at midnight Nov. 6, 1S37. The following- ight the mob again attacked the building where The Observer was published. Cxiveioy and Ms friends were prepared for the attack and defended themselves to the best, of their ability. One member of the intruding mob was killed in the eneoujitec .Attempt* weratiai} »«dC Erhart were burned to death. The ftp! occurred in Erhart's bakery on Central avenue. The building was a three-story brick and K-rhart's family occupied the third floor as a residence. Several of the employes of the bakery, including Frank Kauffman and Charlie Johnson, slept on the second floor. The fire originated in the room in which the ovens are located in the rear of the building, and spread rapidly to the second and third floors, where the' sleeping occupants were almost suffocated with smoke be- tore they made an effort to save themselves. Erhart succeeded by heroic efforts in getting his family out through the windows to the roofs of adjoining buildings, and dropping them on the awnings below. His 11-year-old daughter Clara, after being rescued ran back into th< building for her mother, and was burned to death. The bodies of Kauffman ami Johnson were found in their beds, frightfully burned. They were intoxicated when they retired and were doubtless suffocated. Trial of the Gultlensupiie Cane. .Vew York, Nov. 9. — Surprising- progress was made yesterday in the trial for murder of Martin Thorn it the Queens county court of oyer and ter- miner, at Long Island City, and when court adjourned the jury had been completed.

"Washington, Nov. 9.—The authorities here have been advised that the arrival today of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, premier ot, Canada; Sir Louis Davies, minister of marine in the Lwirier cabinet, and other officials of the Dominion, Is to have an important bearing not only OB the Behring sea settlement but on all the pending questions which have been sources of international complication between the United States and Canada —namely, the passage of alien laborers to and from Canada, the North Atlantic fisheries question, the presence of many Americans in the Klondike territory belonging to Canada and in the mining regions of British Columbia, the fisheries trouble along the great lakes, the bonding privilege granted Canadian railroads, the controversy over rights in the Frazer river (British Columbia) B.nd in the Puget sound, and also the question of a reciprocity arrangement between the United States and Canada- There is direct and definite Information that Sir Wilfrid comes prepared to take up all these questions, and'if possible include them in one general settlement whereby the constant fric^un they have engendered may be over 1 come.

On some of these subjects he will confer with President McKlnley, and on at least one of them—that relating to alien laborers crossing the bonier—lie will suggest such mutual modification of present regulations as in his opinion will be of material advantag-a to the thousands of American! , now in the Klondike and British Columbia mining- country, and •. at the same time will be of adva.itag* to Canada along th'e American border.
