The Folly weighed anchor. As she approached tho captain saw saven vessels on Bandy Point mod heard a voice say: "Here comes Clarke. What are you golnj to do?" The answer came from tho Niokel: "Stand yonr ground, surround him, and don't let him take you." The Folly came up and called to the Nickel to heave to. Her captain refused to do so, and put on morn sail to make off. Meantime ths other vessels disposed themselves so as to place the Folly in the middle of them. Capt Clarke avoided this by tacking out, keeping along with the Nickel. Being within thirty yards of th« vessel, Capt. Clarke balled Capt. Wblte- houw to heave to. Finding that he had no intention to surrender, Capt, Clarke ordered his men to flre into the rigging of the Nickel. Four or five shots were thus fired. Then the Nickel opened on the Folly. She was joined In the attack by two others of the dredgers, and for ten mlnutos the Folly engaged the three Vessels in a fight of the warmest character. Bullets struck the sails of . the Folly, cut the rigging, and whistled past the heads of the crew. Finally the Nickel hauled up, and Capt. Clarke, revolver in hand, jumped aboard. Lying on the deck was the body of Capt Whltehouse with a bullet-hole in bis left temple. A aiffteou-shooter lay by his side. Two undischarged cartridges wore ' still in the rifle. The Leary, another vessel, was captured also, but not tnkeu Into Annapo- 11*. The Folly and Nickel arrived at Annnpo- . Ill at 2 o'clock Humlay morning. At 0 H. in. a jury of Inquest, was summoned, which, after viewing the remains, adjourned for the day. The crew of the N.ckol, compris- 1n~jail; It Is understood that one of the crew of the Nickel has confessed to a plot of four dredging veswls to drive Clark off the grounds, and that the conspiracy had been concocted Saturday afternoon. TASCOTT'S ASSISTANT IN PRISON. Further Link* In the Testimony Against Snail'* Murderer— An Alibi Claimed. CHICAGO, Feb. 20.— The man who assisted the murderer of Millionaire Bneli by standing watch outside while the residence was being robbed, i\ behind prison barn. The arrest was made baturday, and the police have already secured a full confession from .the prisoner. It confirms beyond a doubttho statement that the murderer Is youn* V\' ill- lam B. Tascott, tho fouter-non of CoL J. B. ' Tancott, a wealthy manufacturer. The man arrested made Tascott's acquaintance this winter In the Garden City billiard hall, on West Madison street, And for several weeks they bad been together every day. The morning that Mr. Bnell's house was to be robbed he and , Taaoott went to the house together. Tascott want inside, leaving his comrade on the sidewalk. After the murder . was committed Tascott rushed out, grasped his companion by the wm, and together they went to Taacbtl's lodzing* on West Madison street, where they remained several hours. _ Tascott told nil, and the other was so hbmiVad and so afraid that ha would be charged with the muilder itself that he refrained from giving Information to the police. He made a sworn statement Baturday, aud satisfied the 1 police that he was telling the truth. Too police refined to reveal the name of the prisoner. Frank Tascolt, the brother of Wi Ham B. Tascott, lives at Ouk Park, a few rullea from thii city. He declares that his.brothor Will •pent the night of the murder with him at his residence, and did not go Into the city until the noxt afternoon. lie says he has not seen him since and does not know where he is. Inspector BonHeld announced Sunday night that be bad iltacovered in searching Taioott'4 tffecta, left in his room at a Madi•on street lodging-house, some county scrip which was stolen from Bnell'a safe. This adds another link to the chain of circumstantial evidence connecting Tascott with the murder. The Inspector statod that it was hi* belief that the crook arrested in Los An. gelos a faw.dayj ago, and who afterward escaped from j ill, was Tascott, All. day tele- graplc communication has been going on between the Chicago and California police offl- cial*, and It is stated than Chief of Police Lee, of San Franciico, will at once begin a thorough march on the Pacific slopo for -the murderer, who i> supposed to be beading for Mexico. ^ ___ An Kxcelleut CAM fur the HAIIKDIMU.

At Puttsville the minors' joint committee could not come to an agreement, At Bhamokin A** strikers were told by the leaders that they inunt go to work, but they took no action. There is an element among the prominent miners which Is opposed to going to work until tho company takes back the railroad men, and they are sowing the seeds of rebellion, while the committee which agreed with Corbln is kept busy counteracting their efforts. Among the business men in the region the order to gr> to work is hailed with joy. What the strike cost furnishes no end of speculation. Close calculation, however, places the loss to the men as follows: Hall- road hands, $lti-J,uOO; miners, $1,680,000. Total, $1,1573,000. The low to the company could not be ascertained, but It Is estimated that it will aggregate many times the nrnoant lottt by the men. The Congressional Committee. PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 20. —The congressional Investigation committee closed ita work here Saturday. Swelgard was examined again and presented the agreement between the railway and the railway strikers. This agreement has been regarded by the strikers as providing that no one was to be discharged except after a fair trial. The cladse referred to is to the effect 'that no one who Is charged with causing an accident by careles-sue-e* shall be discharged until he ha* beon heard in his own ilefenie, .

W. H. Wnreing." Mr. I. M.

It is my .special remedy for cramps und sore tliront." Sir. Joachim Witt, Evnnston, Ills., writes February 11,1887: "Some time ago I tell from a building and was bruised very Imclly.

A New York I.«-j;i*!iit! vn Committee Finds Mighty llnrd Boring. NKW YOHK, Fob. 31.— The state senate committee to itivi'HtJg-ite trunts began Monday by examining Honry Havemeyer, who tsstifl >d that he and several other N iw York sugar reflMera wore trustees of I ho trust. He declined to give the namos of concerns ouUide of this state. The refineritM deeded itheir property to the trust and received 'cor- tiflcatwi in return. Witness gave his testimony gru<lgiiigly,-but finally- admitted that one refinery in Su Louis, t^n in IxniUiana, one in Boston, two In Philadelphia, and two In San Franoisco had beon "induceJ" to join the pool, which now controln 32,000 barrels a day capacitv. The 'production of sugar juice December, whim the .trust waa formed, hni decreased about '.23 per cent, and the price has Rono up. The North River, reflnary has been closed and the trustees Intend to close BOme others, including-thoae in Boston. The owners of the closed works will draw their profits th« p.iino an if running. Mr. Havemeyer refuse I to produce the a;;i'pements. He further said that the certlficatcx received from the triiHt in exchange for interests in the formerly. existing firms repreHented three or four timed as much face viilue ns the value of the interests.

It has not been confined to any one locality, for, as Chauncey M. .Depew B&ld, after a visit to the"; west, "At near- 1y every one of the trade 'cen- tres we visited, we found ext ravagaul and un- ten able views of proepective real estate values." Of course the vast army of men engaged In one-way or another in these enterprises were loth to believe their views either extravagant or Untenable. Both they and Depew are ri^ht to a certain extent. Land values have rapidly and permanently increased In this country in the last fifty years. This is especially noticeable In the "Jumping" west, along the lines'of new railroads. Thousands of new cities have sprung up, with a growth perfectly astonishing, and great fortunes have been made In real estate. Land values must continue to increase generally, because the available area of land in the country is now so small as to render inevitable Its entire absorption In a few years; " •-••—• One hundred years from now, »t the present rate of Increase, our population will be 400 to the square mile—twice as many as in the largest European nations. To be a safe speculator, It Is necessary to study cause and effect, as the proprietors of Warner's safe cure did in preparing their remedy. Its' success/is 1 great because it reaches a cause of disease. Every drop of blood coursing through tho §v»tem passe* through the kldjieys. If they are in sound working order.the blood is -purified; if deranged, poison, that should be eliminated, Is carried through the blood channels to every part of the system. The poison attacks the "weak points, and so come the long list of resulting ailments. Remedy the cause, put the purifying organs in health, and the whole system become* healthy. There must be a solid basis for a land boom, however, or It will inevitably remit In a crash, entailing great losses and subsequent Injurious depression. Two Uiousand dollar* pur front foot for land ID eome cities might b« a Judicious investment, In other*, very ludis- crest. It it wise to make InYeelmenu of » character indicating a permanent, If aJow*r, growth and IncreaM of T*lua. Sprrckels Will Fight the Trnnt. SAN FBANCISCO, Feb. 21.— Claus Sprcckels, of the California refinery, says he will probably establish one or more 'Sugar refineries in Baltimore, and other eastern points He believes the trust is fighting him through the American refinery here, and bit will fight the trust. He has offers of ample assistance from New York houses. THE READING SITUATION. Twenty-nlnn nf Forty-four Htnei In Complete Operation— Kicker*. FOTTSVILLE, Pa., Fob. 2L—ft'-wu officially given out Monday evening that twenty- nine out of forty-four company collieries were in complete operation, but the Shenandoah miners threaten to stop work again If discharged engineers are not reinstated. The same intelligence Is reported from St. Clalr, Tower City, ami. other 'towns In the reglou. The strike is, however, Irrevocably broken, and by next Monday the region will be running smoothly again. The striking railroaders of Donaldson held a meeting Sunday night and pussed resolutions denouncing the leaders who declared the Btriku OH, declaring that they would fight to the bitter eud,and calling upon u Mr, W.

Iti tha wages of the miners In the Lackawnnna and Wyoming v.illeyn. The replies from several small companies and inJiqiduul operators were receive,I and read before the moetiug,and were conciliatory, in htone and expressed a willlugn'efls to make any coucaxiion in the • direction of a\ advance In wages that might be graated by the Delaware, Lickawanaa & Western, or other large corporations. After an extended discussion, the whole matter was referred to the district executive board, to strike, or not to strike. Tha action of the employes at several of the collieries of the Delaware, Lackawanua & Western, who have pnssed resolutions deprecating the demand for an advance In wages, was severely denounced in a number of speeches made by the d ImpHHrhing; GrnnvMle's Tentluionr.
