In a railroad collision near Parsons, Ks., two trains were wrecked and burned; three men were killed and six others seriously injured. Lightning struck a company of soldiers going -through their exercises before the German Emperor at Berlin; two men were killed and others were dangerously injured. The Grand Camp of Confederate Veterans of Virginia, will meet in Fredericksburg to-day. In the baccarat scandal suit the jury gave a verdict against the plaintiff. A demonstration was made yesterday by hostile Chilian vessels at Iquique, but no damage resulted. C. H. Mc- Corkle was arrested in New York, charged with negotiating drafts drawn on a firm in Salisbury. N. C, and was held in $1,000 bail.

The immigrant business was on a boom last week. The arrivals panned out 17,166, the biggest run for one week ever made. The divorce mills turned out a pretty big grist in Chattanooga, Tenn., last week. In one day twenty-five divorces were granted. It is said that Wisconsin has more peoole of foreign birth than any other State in the Union, which is the reason why Gen. Grosvenor pronounced it a "foreign province." Ex-Senator Ingalls says "I know that I am here but I don't know where I going." If he don't mend his ways, and atone for some of the devilment he has done it won't be hard to tell where he is going. Some billy goats are very expensive. A denizen of Reading, Fa., has one that devoured $425 in greenbacks at one feed the other day, and finished up on an assortment of tin cans and patent medicine bottles. The St. Louis " Globe-Democrat, Rep., is fully convinced that son Russell talks too much with his mouth, and believes that it would pay the Republican party to raise a fund and hire him to observe a prolonged silence. Sarah Bernhardt is immensely popular in the hotels in which she puts up on her travels, and the servants, bell boys, Sec, tumble over each other to serve her. Reason: she flips $20 gold pieces around among 'em as if they were nickels. The St. Louis Post-Vispatch boasts that "no other city in the world has as wholesome water as St. Louis," but judging from the number of breweries in that town the average St. Louisian don't attach much importance to this discovery. An examination of the tax books of the city of Philadelphia shows that there have been due the city for years by delinquents about $6,000,000, and the impression is growing that there must have been a good deal of hocus pocus about the tax business. Republican gubernatorial timber must be scarce in Illinois when they talk of nominating dirty mouth Joe Cannon. The Republican party has got so low that it will take almost anything these days. It would take a red-hot stove if there was a nickel in it. Iowa is forging to the front. Among her latest claims to distinction is a sixteen-year old girl, said to be handsome and accomplished, who has just been convicted of counterfeiting, burglary, theft and pocket picking. There may be some doubt about her beauty, but with this record there can be no doubt as to her "accomplishments." New Jersey rakes in a good deal of cash out of the corporations she charters, her laws being very liberal in that respect, the only requlrment being that the incorporators pay the charter fee and taxes on the real or alleged capital stock. Many of these companies do business in other States, but New Jersey gets $400,-000 a year out of them and when all pay up as she proposes to make them do, or forfeit their charters, it will amount to $600,000. r VOL. XLVIII.-NO. 68. This tariff business works funny sometimes. Some time ago an American boiler was sent over to Canada, where it exploded. When the owner started back with the tubes the collector at Buffalo demanded duty on them because they were not brought back in the same condition in which they were exported. On appeal to the Treasury Department the decision of the collector was overruled and the tubes got in free ot duty. A Cleveland, Ohio, Judge has recently decided in a case where two rival electric light companies con tended for the ownership of a patent for using the earth as a conductor of electric currents, that the earth be longs to the public. This will be news to some people of the Benjamin Harrison kind who seem to think that the earth belongs to them. It is not right definitely known whether the fugitive colored gentle- man,Thomas, of Cape Fear precinct, is drawing rations from the Govern ment crib at Washington, or rusti cating out in Oklahoma. A search warrant might have found him, how ever, if the prosecutors in the suit against the New Hanover canvass ing board had been very anxious to produce him at Raleigh. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. J, H.

Work of the Women's Auxiliary The New .Building. The regular meeting ot the Women's Auxiliary to the Y. M. C. A., which was held yesterday, had been announced as the last one before the closing for the summer season, but the interest and work in hand demanded that another meeting shall be held. The resignation of the President which had been presented at the former meeting, was most reluctantly accepted. Appropriate resolutions of regret were .dopted by the meeting and a commit tee appointed to nominate a successor. The committees working for the fur nishing of the various rooms in the new building reported very encouraging pro gress, having raised a little over $90 to ward the furnishing since the last monthly meeting. Over $200 more is in the treasury to be used for this purpose. This sum, added to the $500 already put into furnishings, make over $800 that the ladies have already provided toward this object, which they regard as their special work for the new building. As the work on the building pro gresses, the desirability of the two beau tiful stores on f ront street becomes more evident. These stores one 64x22 feet, with an office 12x12 adjoining, and the other 54x22 feet, will be ready for occupancy October 1st, and when fitted un with beautiful date class fronts will present a most attractive appearance on the street, and be exceedingly desirable business stands.

Trask the Murderer in Jail Wild Talk of a Lunatic Homicidal Impulses The Murdered Man's Body Sent to New York Sj japathy for Mrs. Matthew- mann Coroner's Inquest, Etc. A Star reporter called at the jail yesterday about noon, and in company with Jailor King paid the murderer a visit. Trask Jwas found lying on his cot crying. He responded to Mr. King's call and came to the grating. On being interrogated as to why he was crying, no intelligent reply was .received for sometime, but he finally said he wanted to see his auntie. Patient and protracted efforts finally elicited the fact" that "Auntie" was Mrs. Lizzie Andrews, of Mt. Vernon Springs. Owing to the mental condition of the prisoner TALKING WAS BIFFICULT. but at different times, between his spells of crying, he said many contradictory things. At one moment he would declare that he was no kin to Mr. Fowler, as he (Fowler) and his whole race were murderers, while he (Trask) would not kill any one. The next moment he would speak of Mr. Fowler as his uncle, saying that Mr. Fowler ana all his race were after him and intended to kill him. When asked why they should seek his life, he said: "They killed my father and my uncle and poor brother Willie. They know my brain tells me all things, so they want to drown me and get my brain so they won't be found out." This was not told in a connected way, but little by little at different times when he could be prevailed upon to stop crying and talk, or when his talk could be brought back from wandering fairy tales to the matter under discussion. The only statement he repeated twice alike was that he thought Matthewmann was Willie Morrison. During his ravings he was much interested in elaborating on the Swedes, saying. "Swedes travel through the air flying as they wish; they cannot sleep and cannot die; you cannot kill or hurt them; fire will not burn them." "I am a full blooded Swede; so was Jesus Christ; that is the reason he would not stay buried, but got up and flew away. I do not fly now because I have been sick so long and haven't nerve enough to raise myself up and start." "I tried to cut my throat, but only had a stick to do it with; the blood would not run because it is all dried up." 'Swedes' blood is always dried up; they cannot bleed." "You do not understand this because you are not a Swede, but Secretary Rusk, at Washington, is one; just ask him; he can .tell you." "It will need no papers; just have the Congressman telegraph him and it will bi all explained and settled." "You don't know, but he does; he is a Swede; my brain tells me all things because I am one, and that is why I know." This insane and awful theme was foremost with him during thegtime, and he had repeated it to Mr. King earlier in the day when he was comparatively calm. Mr. King says that his mood is not the same more than a few minutes at a time, and the weird and uncanny things his brain tells him of Swedes and of his relatives is enough to make a person's blood run cold. After the examination to-day he talked much more rationally to a reporter, mentioning a trip south, a five years, sickness, and claimed not to re member shooting the night before, or of attempting Mr. Huff's life, or chasing people with knives. He again asked, however, to have Secretary Rusk notified. KEENAN BIRD a colored man who runs a restaurant in the rear of Front street market, says that Monday afternoon he saw Trask try to cut a sailor on Water street, and that a crowd of men separated them and called a policeman, who said that as Trask had not really hurt any body he would not molest him. There are many tales of Trask's doings in the past few days, and there is much UNFAVORABLE COMMENT on the fact of his not being restrained when he went to the City Hall with his incredible tale about Mr. W. G. Fowler seeking his life, and on his escaping arrest for his actions at the market and at other places. Public opinion inclines to the idea'that prompt measures when his actions made . his condition manifest would have saved an innocent life. THE BODY OF MATTHEWMANN, After being viewed by the coroner's jury Monday night, was turned over to undertaker J. W. Woolvin, who era balmed it, and placed it in a beautiful casket, the gift of the murdered man's employer, Mr. Thos, H. Skidmore. Mrs. Matthewmann and her little chil dren, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Skidmore, left with the body at 9 o'clock yesterday morning for their home at Brooklyn, N. Y., where the interment will take place. Mr. George Myers, the fellow-workman of Matthewmann, and who was his companion when he was- shot, followed on last night's train to attend the funeral. Mr. Matthewmann was a favorite with his party and in speaking of him to a Star reporter yesterday morning MR. SKIDMORE SAID, He was a native of Brooklyn, N. Y., JUNE 10, 1891 where he enjoyed the highest esteem and respect of a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He has been in the employ of the company which bears my name, and of which I am manager, for five years and was a - first-class man, kind, and a favorite with all with whom he came in contact. His loss is to me almost irreparable in a business way, and his sad and tragic death is a real grief personally." MRS. MATTHEWMANN was attended Monday night by Mr. and Mrs. Skidmore, the ladies of the Bonitz Hotel and others whose warm sympa thies were aroused by the great bereave ment so suddenly cast upon a stranger. Rev. Robert Strange, rector of St. f James', and Rev. W. S Creasy, pastor of Grace Methodist church, passed a portion of the night with the grief-stricken lady. In reply to inquiries yesterday morning, a Star reporter was told a sorrowful story of the lady's despairing grief. Itis said she shed no tears and made no complaint or moan, but settled into a state of utter hopeless, a stony despair, from which nothing aroused her and which was described as being most terrible and distressing to witness. the coroner's inquest. Coroner Walton held an inquest yesterday morning to inquire into the cause of the death of Benjamin Matthews, as he was called by some of his friends, or Matthewmann, as his name appeared on the register of the Bonitz hotel. Messrs. W. W. King, Kirkland Huske, Wm. Sheehan. J. D. Sellers, W. T. Williams and J. Starr Johnson were empanelled as a jury. Only three or four witnesses were examined. The testimony as to the shooting was substantially as told in the Star yesterday. Mr. Wm. Bonitz, proprietor of the hotel, testified that immediately after the shoot was fired that killed Matthewmann, he saw Trask standing in front of Mr. West store-window and the body of the deceased lying in front of Mr. Huggins' store door. The police officer (Terry) was on the grass-plot in the middle of the street Trask then fired at the officer, who called out something that he (Bonitz) did not hear distinctly; supposed the policeman wanted the way cleared as he was going to shoot. Witness went into the hotel, but hearing no more firing came out, and seeing Trask standing in the same position with his hand raised, witness approached Trask from behind and grasped him by the arms, took him up to the wounded man and asked him, "What did you do that for?". Trask replied, "Turn me loose or I'll kill you." Policemen then came ;up and witness turned Trask over to them. S. H. Terry, the police officer, testified, in substance, that between 7 and 8 o'clock Monday evening he passed the Bonitz hotel. Saw three men standing on the sidewalk in front of Huggins' store, a few doors below the hotel. Heard one of them say, "It ain't a d n bit of use to do that." Terry passed on as far as Green's drug store; heard deceased call him and turned and walked back to where the men were standing. Matthewmann, the deceased, pointing at Trask, said to the officer, Didn't youjsee that man draw a pistol on me?" Terry replied that he did not. Trask then spoke, saying "How are you, Mr. Terry?" Terry asked Myers, (Mat thewmann 's friend) what was the matter. Myers did not reply, but deceased spoke saying, 'he (Trask) drew a pistol on me and you ought to arrest him" Trask replied to this, saying, "You are no policeman," and ran off a few steps to Mr. West's store, again calling out, "You are no policeman, damn you, and I'll kill you." Trask then drew his pistol and pointed it at Terry, who stepped into the doorway of Huggins' store. Trask then pointed the pistol at deceased, and said, "I'll kill you first, you ," and immediately fired. At the report of the pistol, de ceased threw up his hands and fell in the doorway of Huggins' store. After the conclusion of the testimony the jury rendered a verdict that deceased came to his death from a wound inflicted by a pistol shot at the hands of Robt. H. Trask. BEFORE MAYOR RICAUD. In the afternoon at 3 o'clock Trask was brought from the county jail to the City Hall, for a preliminary investiga tion of the case by Mayor Ricaud. The prisoner was placed within the railing and took his seat on the bench with two policemen near. He did not appear to be much concerned at his situation. Mr. Herbert McCIammy stated to the Court that himself and Mr. Du B. Cut- lar, Tr., appeared as counsel for the prisoner and would waive examina tion. The Court took a recess for an hour to consider the matter and upon reassembling the prisoner was duly committed to jail to await the action of the Criminal Court and the witnesses in the case were recognized for their ap pearance before that Court. A handsome solid silver goblet will be presented as a prize for the best marksman on the occasion of the Policemen's excursion to Wrightsville to-morrow, by the management of the Seacoast railroad. tar WHOLE NO. 7,673 For the Star. ST. BARNABAS' SCHOOL. The closing exercises this year of this well-known and popular institution for the education of colored children, under the superintendence of the Rev. Mr. Coerr, were of an exceedingly interesting and gratifying character, far sur passing in character and ability those of any of the preceding years. The hall in Giblem Lodge, corner of Eighth and Princess streets, was literally packed by an exceedingly fine audience, parents and friends of the pupils, containing a large number of our leading colored citizens. The exercises opened with religious services conducted by the head master, which were followed by a choice programme of recitations, dia logues, songs, and given by the pupils in a surprisingly enective and spirited manner. It would be invidious to speak of any one member especially, as all were so nicely rendered, but it will not be amiss to mention the very clear and distinct pronunciation of Cora Brinkley, ualu Murray and Sarah McRae, the last named pupil deserving especial credit for superintending and arranging the entire programme. The solo by Theresa Philpott was given very nicely, and elicited much favorable comment. The usual distribution of gifts and prizes then followed, being introduced by a few remarks by Mr. Coerr, saying among other things that the past school year was one of the most satisfactory in point of attendance and scholarship than any that had been spent by him in charge of the school. One hundred and seventy-six pupils has been enrolled, and although the prevailing sickness of last winter had interfered somewhat materially with the attendance and progress of the pupils, the results were gratifying in the extreme. The grades observed in the school were explained, and also the monthly report given to each pupil at the close of every month announcing the grade attained by the pupil and giving the record of the month's work. James McFarland, of the Senior Class, 1st Division; Robert Drake, of the Junior Class, 2nd Divison; Sarah McRae, of the Senior Class, 1st Division; and Carrie Allen, of the Middle Class, 2nd Division, had gained, respectively, 93, 91, 92, and 90 per cent, and hence were entitled to the first prizes, consisting of two watches, a handsomely illustrated edition of the History of the United States, and an elegantly dressed doll, all ot which seemed to afford the fortunate scholars much pleasure, as well as the other prizes and gifts awarded to the other pupils, of which want of space prevents a more extended allusion. The exercises closed with a fine rendition of the Polish Boy by Minnie Howe, Calesthenic Drill by several members of the school, and the singing of the Doxology by the entire audience, all of whom departed expressing themselves more than delighted and satished with the progress of the pupils as evidenced by the exercises of St, Barnabas School at the expiration of the term of 1890-91.
