NEW YORK, April 10.—The New York Herald publishes a startling story relative to the incarceration of Miss Anna Dickinson, the famovis lecturer, in an insane asylum. The Herald says that Miss Dickinson came to New York Thursday with Dr. Frederick W. Scward, of Goshen, N. Y., at whose house she has been since she escaped from Danville, April 2. They came for the purpose of apprising Miss Dickinson's friends in New York of the wrong she said she had suffered, and to secure legal advice as to the steps necessary to insure her freedom if she should return to Pennsylvania. Miss Dickinson lays the blame for her incarceration upon her sister, whom she accuses of harboring an intense feeling of jealousy and hatred. She also accuses her sister's physician, Dr. llileman, of being in the against her. Miss Dickinson that on the day on which was removed to an asylum the of her room was broken in and six men and a woman rushed in and overpowered her. One of the men she says was Dr. Hilcman and the woman she understands was the doctor's' aunt. They annotmeed their intention of taking her to Danville, where they said she would be better off. Miss Dickinson struggled until the skin was torn from 4ier wrists and her garments were ripped from her in rags and tatters. Finally, she says, her persecutors got her hands down and led them together, and she was compelled to submit. Dr. Seward, it appears, became informed of the facts of the case as alleged by Miss Dickinson and obtained the release of Miss Dickinson under pretense that he intended to take her to a private asylum where she would be more bene- fitted. Dr. Sevvai'd expressed himself as entirely confident of the sanity of Miss Dickinson. The Herald reporter who interviewed Miss Dickinson says that her manner was calm and rational and that she at no time betrayed the least evidence of insanity. Miss Dickinson will prosecute her sister, she says, for the mental and physical suffering she has iindergonc. Miss Dickinson says the Danville asylum is a horrible place. She was among the least dangerous patients, but she says when she looks back on the dreadful things she wonders she did not go insane indeed. On April 3 Dr. Seward went to the asylum and Miss Dickinson was placed in his charge. Louisa Mc- family servant of the A GREAT SCHEME. The United States to Dulld A South American Hallway—A.

PITTSBURGH, Pa., April 10.—The joint nter-state convention of coal operators ,nd miners split Thursday and the ight for eight hours was declared by he latter. The miners opened the ball n the morning by having a special ommittee on hours appointed. The sommittee reported to the convention hat it could not come to any agreement, and President Rac of the miners' union submitted the following: "First—That a reduction in the compensa- lon of day labor relative to the reduction in hours will bo allowed. "Second—That we proceed to make a wage iale with the understanding that eight hours tall be a day's work after May 1 without the operator's official indorsement, and if it does not generally prevail within a reasonable time the minors will not insist oa its enforcement." The operators refused to grant this, and in wild confusion the operators adjourned the convention sine die. Col. Rend, of Chicago, said after the meeting: "A strike, and a most serious one, seems to be ahead of us. If the miners of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania lay down their tools May 1 it will paralyze the business. An immense number of manufactories will close down. At least 500,000 people are directly interested in the matter." i The sensation of the convention was disclosed Thursday night. It was definitely stated by the miners that the railroads of the country were back of the operators in their fight against the eight-hour movement; that the fight was not only with the miners but would extend to the railroads also and the sooner it was throttled the better. Also that the eight-hour move rnij*ht have some influence on the rates paid for coal, and for this reason, too, the railroads were opposed to it. Thg operators conceded that some western roads wez-e concerned in supporting the fight against eight hours, but they denied that any concerted move had been made by the railroads of the country.
