PITTSIIUBG, Pa., Feb. .]».—The ice gorge at Parker Gity is still Intact and the greatest alarm prevails. There are a series of gorges between Brady's Pond and a short distance above Parker. The chief danger lies in the strength of the Parker gorge and the •weakness of the one above. It is feared that tlio upper g'orge will break. The result would be that a dam would be formed similar to the one a few years ago at Brady, wheie tha river rose six feet in seven minutes.

CANNES, Feb. 18.—The most, intense excitement was caused in the large American colony here today by the announcement that one of the most prominent visitors at the place, Edward Parker Deacon, a native of the United States, had shot and killed a Frenchman connected with the diplomatic service, named Arbelle. The story is an old one. A handsome woman is mated to a man whom she betrays, forgetting him in her infatuation or fancy for another man, bringing shame and sorrow upon her family. Deacon and wife had been sojourning for some time past at the Hotel Splendid with their four children. For a time Deacon has suspected his wife of being unduly intimate with Arbeille, and kept close watch. Last night he discovered Abrcille in'his wife's chamber. He summoned the secietary of the hotel and together they went to Mre. Deacon's apartment and forced the door. Mrs. Deacon was alone. Her husband proceeded to an adjoining room, and there discovered Arbeill* attempting to hide himself behind a chair. Decon leveled a revolver at the man and fired three shots, fatally wounding the Frenchman. Deacon was at once arrested, but it is tho general opinion among American residents here that he did just the right thing. t Another Account. Another report of the affair says Deacon had gone up to Paris, but returned suddenly and went straight to his wife's bedroom. Mrs. Deacon, it appears, had no idea that her husband would return so soon. Rumor has it that Deacon's unex pected return, was caused by an anonymous letter written by a jealous woman. When Deacon burst in the bedroom he found, the story has it, his wife in bed and M. Arbeille standing by the bedside, evidently . with the intention of escaping. After having reproached his wife, who moaned with terror, and crawled from the bed, fell on her knees and piteously implored him to forgive her, the American is said to have turned his wrath upon Arbeille, who had professed the utmost friendship for the confiding husband, ami after upraiding him fired three shots. Tue Frenchman screamed with agony uncl fell back ana died on the mat in front of the bed. Deacon then turned to his wife and said, "Killing is too good for you; you shall be reserved for a worse fate, you shall live DETERMINED TO DIE, A Crazy Vlntem nt the Gtlp Ottl Throat With Broken Claw.

Secretary of the Treasury Responds to a House Resolution WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—The secretary of the treasury has written a letter to the speaker of the house in response to a house resolution calling on him for information ''whether at any time since the 4K per cent, bonds became clue there has been sufficient funds m the treasury to pay the same; and if so br what authority he assumed to continue any ot such bonds at 2 per cent, interest, and why the same were not all paid at the time said bonds were due." The secretary eajs the 4^ per cents were redeemable at the pleasure of the United States on three months notice to the holder. He shows that there were suf- licient funos in the treasury to pay outstanding bonds, but says it was deemed prudent and profitable to tho govorn- ni*nt; to continue a portion of them; tho authority under which the bonds were permitted to continue is contained in tho act which authorized their issue. The secretary calls attention to the fact that the 47th congress approved of 5 and 6 per cent, bond sat 3 per cent. j ~" I HAWAIIAN ELECTIONS. lliey Pass off Quletly-Honorg »re 111- videtl.
