BLOWN TO ATOMS BY AN EXPLOSION. The Fate ot an Employee of a Cartridge Company. SUICIDE OF A PROMINENT BANKE8. J S. Creiffbtoa, a BTw York Banker,. End Hi X.if He leaves an Open Z,ettr OlTlns his Season for tlie Terrible Seed. Bridgeport, Coxk., Oct 33. One of the fulminate departments of the Union MetallicCartridge company blew up with terrible force at 9 a. m. today, causing great consternation among the employees in the main factory. George Raker 'and his eon Fred were employed in the department at the time, but a moment before the explosion the eon became f lightened and left the place. The father was blown to atoms, his body, being scattered in every direction. Deceased wasover fifty years old, and was considered a very careful man. The explosion shattered a Jarje quantity of glass in the main building on the opposite side of the street. The large force of operatives, mostly girls, became so excited that they left the shop. The affair caused great excitement about the city, especially among those having relatives employed in the works. The exact cause of the explosion cannot be determined- Suicided. New Yokk, Oct. 231. R. Creighton. of the banking firm of I. 11. Creighton & Co., was found dead in his office at 72 Broadway this morning by the janitor of the building. The bedy was cold and rif id when found, death having occurred some hours before. The dead man lay on a sofa with a revolver with an empty shelllnone his side. On the office table lay several sealed letters to his wife and an open letter addressed, "To all whom it may concern," and read as follows: "I have fought a hard business battle; have made a square fight but have lo9t. My brain has giveaway and. now my body must go. Please break the news gently to my wife." George Crosby, Mr. Creighton's cashier, Boon arrived and was considerably overcome on learning what had occurred . He said: "I left him at the office yesterday afternoon happy and have never seen any thing in his condnrt. to indica'e that he was in low spirits. So far as I know his accounts were all right. He has had no financial difficulty, I think." Murdered, for Money. Chicago, Oct 23. Michael Brazill, an aged respected citizen of the suburban town of Desplains, was brutally murdered by three tramps last evening. He went into hii barn on Desplaines ayenue to feed his cow, wbsn the three men who had been concealed in the buildings sprang upon him. One of them struck him on the head with a coupling pin, al most braining him. The other men ripped open his pockets and took every thing of value. Members of Brazill's family say he is known to carry large sums of money with him, having no faith in banks. They think the murderer secured S50 or $60 cash and yaluable papers. Shortly after he was killed three men were seen to run from the barn towards the railroed and jump on a freight trajn niOYing north. Several men found on out going freight trains were arrested at different points and the police are confident of securing the murderers. It is learned that Brazill had about $0,000 in money and notes upon his person, of which over $1,000 was in cash. As the men were running away fiom the murder, they passed under a gaslight in front of the house of August Molclen- haur, a justice of the peace. They coolly stopped there and looked over the con tents of the big old fashioned wallet in which Brazill carried hia money and papers. Selecting the money from the pocketbook, the men tossed the wallet and papers over the fence into a yacant lot. Mra. Moldenhaur was standing in the front parlor and saw them very plainly by the light of the lamp. A Subject of Interest. Nashville, Teun., Oct. 23. At this morninge meeting or the American Humane association, the subject of cattle transportation was taken up. During the past year, a special agent had been appointed, through the efforts of Mrs. Caroline E. White, of Philadelphia, to travel over the different roads and see that animals were properly trea ed and watered while in transit. The chairman 6tated that there were at present about 8,000 improved cattle cars in use west of Chicago, while there were none of these improved cars used east of that city. An effort will be made to secure a more general introduction of these desirable cars. r'ield-Huclc. Chicago. Oct. 23. At noon, Mr. Marshall Field, Jr., son of the head of the reat dry goods firm of Marshall Field & Co. and Miss Albertive Hack, daughter of Louis C. Huck. the millionaire brewer, Jwere united in marriage at the residence of the bride, by arch Bishop Feehan. Another California Excitement Oklahoma. Oct. 23.

Atchison, Topeka S Santa re teck la quoted to-day at 83 J The Ohio Legislature- Columbus, O., Oct. 23.-In the house this morning the bill providing a nonpartisan board of improrements for Cincinnati, to be appointed by the mayor, was read a second time, and the house refused, by a vote of 70 to 43, to suspend the rules for a third reading in order that the bill might be placed on passage. The opponents of Governor Campbell endeayored to secure the adoption of a resolution calling upon the governor for any evidence in his possession as to the dishonesty of members of the board of improvements, but the resolution failed and the house at 12 o'clock, adjourned to 10 a. m. tomorrow. The senate resolution was offered to appoint a committee of three to investigate the charge, that the clerk of the senate had purposely detained the nonpartisan bill after it passed the senate, thus delaying the work ot the legislature. The resolutions went over under rule. The only result accomplished today was the consideration of local measures. Another Race War. Atlakta, Ga.,Oct. 23. Only meagre reports can be obtained concerning th reported race riot in Coffee county. It appears that in the riot, four white men were shot down. None of thesa are dead according to the latest reports. The governor has receiyed a request to order out the militia, on the ground that white peoplj are at the "mercy of an armed mob of negroes. He accordingly ordered the Way Cross rifles to proceed at once to the scene of the conflict Wreck on the C & O-Richmond, Ya.. Oct. 23. At 4:45 this morning, the cast bound through express train on the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad, ran into a rock that had fallen on the track, two miles east of Hinton, W. Va The engine and express car were derailed and Engineer Goodall, of Clinton, had a leg and arm broken. He was also badly scalded and his recovery is doubtful. Two firemen were slightly injured. Farmers In Possession of Wlcnita. Kak&as City, Oct. 23. A special to the Star from Wichita aays: The af-liance has taken possession of the town today. The parade was two hours passing a given point. A picnic is being held this afternoon. Jerry Simpson and Mrs. McCormick will address the reyel-lers. Photographic Revelations. Instantaneous photographing bids fair to reveal all the secrets that baffle the mere eye. It is quicker than the eye, and can detect lightning changes that organ cannot. It seems indeed as quick as thought itself. Professor Muybridge photographed a pail of ice water as it fell over the neck and shoulders of a woman. The photographic plates were exposed and removed by electricity, thus enabling them to be changed more quickly than could have been done by the operator's hands. The eye can take cognizance of no perceptible lapse of time between the points where the water leaves the pail and where it drenches the woman. But the instantaneous photograph notes three distinct intervals. In the first the water is falling, yet has not touched the woman's head. In the second the ice water touched the girl's neck and shoulders, but the sensation had not yet been carried to her brain. In the third plate sho was beginning to be aware of the shock, but not until a fourth impression had been made was she fully awakened tO the unpleasantness of the sensation. Another wonder, still more marvelous, has been revealed by this betrayer of secrets. Time out of mind travelers' tales from the orient dilate on the strange powers of the Indian jugglers. They can make a rose bloom from the seed planted in a flower pot before your eyes a- few minutes before. They can bring into an audience composed of hundreds of most intelligent persons a beautiful little girL Before the eyes of this intelligent audience the fakir hacka the pretty child to pieces with his sword. Her cries are heartrending; her blood flows. Then the cries cease; she is dead. The outraged audience are about to spring at the throat of the fiendish fa kir, when lo! a miracle. In the edge of the crowd somewhere the child suddenly appears, laughing and bowing. If the fakir killed her he brought her to life again, sound and lovely as before. She comes into the circle again. The juggler Lids her ascend into the air. Up sh goes, higher and higher, till she is lost to view, and nobody knows whither that child does vanish. These facts have been sufficiently attested bv reliable witnesses. Hard headed newspaper men have described the scenes; artists have sketched them as they appeared. The instantaneous photograph was flashed on them. Result: nothing there. Yet the camera had told the truth, and the human witnesses had lied. There was absolutely nothing there. The rascally fakir had simply hypnotized his whole audience of shrewd, highly intelligent men. The camera he could not hypnotize. Xever Mind, Sir John. Sir John Macdonald, in Canada, is evidently concerned about the United States in a way that interferes with his digestion. In a speech at Halifax he said of the land that sums up 63,000,000 inhabitants against Canada's 5,000,000: It is a great country, but it will have its vicissi tudes and revolutions. Look at the mass of foreign ignorance and vice which has flooded that country with communism, socialism, atheism and all other isms. We can sit calmly under the flag of England and look with philosophy upon the struggles cf fierce democracy across the frontier. Never mind, Sir John. Well take care of our isms. Did you ever notice that if you take a small bottle of kerosene oil and pour it over a stone floor and set fire to it it will burn with great blaze and smoke, but no explosion will follow? On the other hand, set fire to i in the bottle and it will blow your everlasting head off. Just so with those very bad men, our atheists and communists. It is much safer to let them ventilate their ideas than to try to bottle them up. People who talk tremendously are not dangerous. The "Dairy again tonight.

By xne Contract tna Cneyennes Surrender all Claims to their Reservation Obtained tj the Treaty of 18S7. Fokt Kexo, I. T., Oct. 23. The total number of s'gnaturea to the Cheyenne and Arapahoe contract is now 443. Ol these fifteen were added yesterday. Stragglers are still and Seger'a colony will come as soon as the South Canadian is favorable. Little Chief returned from Kingfisher and reported that Short Teeth's band would arrive Thursday. By the con I t the Cheyenne and Arapahoe tribes surrender all claim and interest to that part of the Cherokee Strip embraced within the Arkansas river on the east, the southern boundary line of the State of Kansas on the north and the Cimarron river on the west and south. This is the reservation which they obtained by the treaty of 1867. However, after accepting the provisions of the treaty of 1807 they were dissatisfied with the country and left, coming south to the reservation they now occupy. These lands have been recently purchased from the Creek and Seminole Indians and embrace all the Country bounded by the 9Sth degree of west longitude on the west line of Oklahoma on the east; the Canadian river and possessions obtained from Creeks and Seminoles in 1860 and 1S67 on the 100th degree of west ' longitude on the west, and the north fork of the Red river, the Kiowa and Commanche reservations and Washita river on the south. Of this reservation the Wichitas and Cad-does occupy the southeast corner between the South Canadian and Washita rivers and must be treated with. President Grant placed the Cheyenne and Arapahoes here upon executive order, and they have no title to the lands, but by surrendering their claims to all lands in the Territory they aro to receive Sl,-500, 000 and be permitted to take allotments. RIOT IN GEORGIA. Negroes of the Turpentine Region Kill Four White Men In a Itace War. Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23. The sheriff of Coffee County at ten o'clock last night called on Governor Gordon for troops to suppress a riot of negroes against the whites. Four men are said to have heen killed and the sheriff telegraphed that the negroes were shooting down the whites. The scene is twenty miles from the nearest telegraph station and no particulars are obtainable. Negroes constitute a large proportion of the populafon of Coffee County, and the county has been the scone of several race troubles. Much of the territory is covered with dense pine forests, the working of which for turpentine employs large numbers of both whites and blacks. These are very illiterate, and there is much race prejudice, which frequently leads to conflicts. Douglas, the county seat, is a small village of the most primitive sort The population of the county is only a few thousand. At midnight word was received from Waycross that the r'lolers are lei by a white man named L. 1J. Varna, who operates a turpentine still. He had a dispute about some land with Thomas Seers, and while attempting to gain possession Seers shot one of the negroes dead and later, with a gang of men. attacked Varna's hands. The ne- --fgroes then resolved on retaliation and I .V.l i shot three of the whites fatally B. E. McLendon, Frank Seers, Thomas Seers and a companion named Hendricks. The negroes are described by the messenger who brought the news to Way-cross as being furious. THE TKUTH OUT. A Young Dago Tells How the Old Dagoes Killed Chief Hennesy. New Orleans, Oct 23 Joseph Williams, a colored boy well acquainted with Casparo Marchesi, the fourteen-year-old son of one of the men charged with coniplicity in murdering Hennessey, arrested with his father, but released as no one Identified him, met the boy and asked him how he got out of jail. Marchesi replied that he had turned State's evidence against his father; that the latter made him stand on Girod street and watch for the chief, and told him to whistle when Hennessey approached and then run to the Poy-dras market The whistle was the signal for his father and the others to come out of the shanty on Girod street He did as told fhe night of the murder, and his father and an Italian joined him at the market shortly afterward, where they were arrested. Williams reported to the police and the son was arrested. The Law Xot In Forec. Mexico, Mo., Oct 23. In the case of the State vs. Frank Aschman, of Mar-tinsburg, charged with selling liquor In violation of the Local Option law, the court held that the Local Option law had not been adopted in this county and was not in force, and the defendant was discharged. The law was voted on and carried in this county in March, 1SSS. The law provides that when the vote is cast the poll books shall be delivered to the county clerk, who shall call in two of the county judges or two justices of the peace and the three canvass the returns. The records do not show that this was done, hence the law was not in force. Southwestern Kansas Old Soldiers. Arkansas Citt, Kan., Oct 2a The Southwestern Soldiers' Association's fourth annual reunion opened in Riverside park. It is estimate! that fully 10, 000 people were on the grounds and that every city and county in the Southwest was represented. Speeches were made by Senator Ingalls, Governor G. W. Steele, of Oklahoma, Hon. B. W. Perkins and State Auditor Tim .McCarthy. . Kansas Anti-IIorse Thief Meeting:. Independence, Kan., Oct 23.

The conference between the National and Players' Leagues and the American Association has fallen through, at least for the present The Players' League conference committee made a demand that the players bo represented in the conference of yesterday. They persisted in their demand, and as a consequence the conference has not been held, and the settlement of the base-ball trouble is as far over as ever. Allen Thurman, who was in the chair, declined to call the conference to order until three players had left the room. Al Johnson, of the Players' League, said that he had been instructed to present a communication stating that the original committee of the Players' League had been increased to six. A hot discussion then ensued. The conference then adjourned. Ovid Goodloe's End. West Melville, La., Oct 23. Ovid Goodloe, a notorious mulatto, who had for years past infested this section of the country, committing many deeds of violence against the people, was taken from jail here last Sunday and found hanging on a bridge one mile east of Melville Monday morning. There are two true bills now pending against him in St' Landry Parish. When sober he was a very peaceable man, but when under the influence of whisky he was a most desperate brute. Lucky l or Wheat. Washington. Oct 23. Since th dl- mlssal of Postmaster Wheat, of the House of Representatives, there has been somo susestion made that he would be prosecuted in the criminal court for taking a bribe. The matter has been given somo attention in the district attornev's office, and it is under stood that the opinion arrived at is that the law applies to officers of the United States, and not to subordinate officers of Congress. Five Men Killed. Milan, Tenn., Oct 2a A telegram from McNairy County gives particulars of a horrible accident in which five men were killed. The boiler of an engine exploded and John White's head was blown from his shoulders and hurled fifty yards away. The body of he owner of the mill, It E. Trimbull, was torn into shreds.

His Friends Bringing- Strong; Prtsrart on President Harriron for the Appointment Chicago Worried About Registration Frauds. Champaign, 111., Oct 2a A crowd. estimated at S.C00 people, assembled to greet Speaker Reel on the occasion of his first address in Illinois. This city is in Congressman Cannon s district, and Mr. Cannon, who is canvassing for re-election, introduced Mr. Reed. The famous wieider of the Congressional gavel spoke nearly an hour. He jumped at once into the tariff question. and declared that a tariff bill concerns more than any other all the business interests of the country. The farmer no less than the mechanic is the beneficiary of protection, for the system that keeps the American money at home and creating markets for all American products must enhance prices to the tiller of the soil, the same as to the toiler in the mills. Of what use is it, he asked, that every thing be made cheaD if a man has not got a dollar? What good would it do to offer you the whole State of Texas for a pair of boots if you did not have th boots? Do not be concerned, he said, about the rise in prices. If prices go up as the result of general prosperity the people will have the money to pay them. The Democratic papers that editorially proclaimed a rise contain on the next page advertisements of mer chants who say they are still selling goods at the old prices at the old stand. On the elections question he declared that popular government is the only safe government in this country, and that there is no peril to the Republic in a free vote and a fair count whatever damage it may threaten to the Democratic party. Mr. Reed summed up the benefits of the legislation on the silver question by this Congress and eulogized the present Congress' legislation on pensions. JUDGE GRESHAM. His Friends Pushing Him For Miller's Place. Washington, Oct 2i Strong pressure is beinsr brought to bear on Presi dent Harrison to appoint Judge Gresh- am, of Indiana, successor to the late Justice Miller. Out West the papers friendly to the claim of Judge Gresham have printed enthusiastic editorials on the subject and there have been hundreds of expressions from leading men favoring his promotion. It is understood that already snore than 500 press clippings indorsing Judge Gresham have been received at the White House, and as the most pronounced of the batch aro from Indiana and Illinois it can be depended upon that they are carefully inspected at the executive mansion. Some of the most ardent supporters of Judge Gresham are sa'd to have written letters in which they take the position that he is fully entitled to this honor and suggesting to the President that as the judge was one of his competitors for the nomination at Chicago in 1SS8 it would be the graceful and proper thing to appoint him to the vacancy on the Supreme Bench. It is no secret here, however, that the President does not " care to appoint Judge Gresham; and yet if he docs not do so the friends of the latter will make it rather uncomfortable for him in 1S92. On the other hand if he should yield to the pressure being exerted and should select Judge Gresham as the sucoessor to Justice Miller it would make him still more important in the West Secretary Noble is also undoubtedly being pressed for the vacant position, and one of his friends deems it necessary to volunteer the statement denying that General Noble is sixty years of age. He says that it is unfair to create the impression that he is sixty, when as a matter of fact ho is only fifty-seven, and moreover is eligible as a citizen of the circuit in which Justice Miller lived and to which ho was assigned. REGISTRATION FRAUDS. Chicago Worried About an Addition of F.fty Thousand Names. Chicago, Oct 2a On the last day of registration about 50,000 new names were put upon the lists. Since then both parties have been earnestly at work, each trying to show that the other had caused many names to be fraudulently put upon the rolls. The aggregate result, according to an independent morning paper, is that about 25,000 notices, or one-half in number of the new registration, have been sent out, calling on the persons suspected of being Improperly registered to come forward and establish their legal rights. On complaint of Harry Geoghan and Morris Cohn, representing the Democratic campaign committee, about twenty negroes were arrested, charged with illegal registration, chiefly In the Second ward.
