PAtli, June 8.—About daylight Bunday morning a negro giving his name as Huston Osborne had a narrow escape from lynching. He climbed in the window of a little cottage, 1095 Iglehart street, in which slept Maggie, Frieda and Katherine Ketchell. His object was criminal assault. He was discovered in the attempt, and the screams of the frightened women* who rushed from the house, aroused their brother, who slept in the cottage next door. In an instant he was out, and discovered the negro in flight. Divin* ing the situation the brother gave chase, attired only in his night shirt. On his way he was Joined by n Cowboy and others who were abroad, and after one of the most exciting and remarkable chases for a man that ever occurred the negro was captured and brought back to the scene of his intended crime. Here, in the presence of all, he waft strung tip to the big tree in the yard of the brother's house, and had it not been for the entreaties of the women he would now be a corpse. He was token to the Eondo street station. He admitted his object and gave his name as Huston Osbome, admitted having served time in prison for bxir- glary, and said that for the last two weeks he had been an extra writer at the West hotel, in Minneapolis. MOTHER AND DAUGHTER KILLED. Deed Supposed to Have Been Done by n Discharged lunatic. MINNEAPOLIS, June 8.—A terrible tragedy occurred in the room over Hurst's drug store, 1229 Nicollet avenue. The rooms were occupied by Mrs. Martha Elias, a widow 55 years old, and her daughter Annie. Shortly after 4 o'clock a. m. a young man in the drug store heard a pistol shot. This was followed by another shot five or ten minutes later. A policeman coming up at the time the two went upstairs. They forced the door open and the bodies of the two women were found on the bed. The girl was under the clothes, the mother on the outside. The girl had been shot behind the ear. The upper part of Mrs. Elias' head had been shot off. The shot had entered between the eyes. It was at first thought to be a case of murder and suicide. Later developments, however, indicate that It Wns a Double Murder. Loren D. Elias, son of Mrs. Elias, is suspected of committing the crime. He was discharged from the St. Peter asylum May 1. He was not known to be dangerously insane. There is evidence, however, to connect him with the crime. His grip contained $109 and some clothing marked with his name has been found in the rear of the Elias apartments. A curtain in the kitchen of the suite, which is at the 1 extreme rear, has been found badly torn. There is other evidence to show that] instead of sleeping with her daughter Mrs. Elias when she retired went to bed in a room between that in which the bodies were found and the rear of the house. The fact that the revolver was not clutched in the hand of the dead mother also points to the supposition that the shooting was done by a third party. The son was arrested for the crime, but denied it and accounted for his movements. ;•*— SHOCKING SUICIDE. A Woman Saturates Her Clothing With Gasoline and Applies a Match. ELLSWOBTH, Kan., June 8.—Mrs. "William Irviu of Freeport, Ills., who for several mouths has been living here with her father, a prominent citizen named Leavitt, committed suicide in a shocking manner. She was insane and had been carefully watched, but during the evening she eluded vigilance and stole into the cellar. There she saturated her clothing with gasoline and applied a match. When found she was enveloped in flames and died a few minutes later, in intense agony. GOES BACK TO CHINA. Chairman Cutter Outline* the £Hncl£lfe» 6* the Ne*t Cftfl&imlftn. &EW YORK, June 1.—Thomas H. Cotter, chairman of tb.6 Republican national committee, in a public state* ment says: "In 1896, the Republican party will Staiid for protection, and the *restora- tioh of bimetallism on a substantial and enduring basis. There may be differ- Inces of opinion in the party on the schedules, but not Upott the principle of protection. There will be differences of opinion as to the best course to bur- sue to secure the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at a fixed ratio. But there will be no difference of opinion as to the desirability of bringing about that result. "Upon one question there will be neither difference of opinion as to the general principle involved, or as to the means to be employed. That is with reference to the restoration of a vigorous, thoroughly American foreign policy, "I am persuaded that the Republican national convention will pledge the party anew and with great earnestness and force to this line of policy. The people demand it. They are conscious of their strength, and they realize that this republic can no longer be referred to as merely a nation. They know that it has become and is a nation." PULLMAN COMPANY WINS. Suit to Annul Its Charter Decided by Judge Bolnr. CHICAGO,, June 8. -Several months ago Attorney General Moloney begun quo warranto proceedings against the Pullman Palace Cor company for the purpose of taking away the company's charter and terminating its corporate existence. In his information the attorney general set up that the car company had violated its charter by buying real estate and building the town of Pullman; by erecting and operating the Pullman building in this city, by manufacturing brick and in other ways. The case has been pending in the courts ever since. It was elaborately argued some time ago, and Judge Bolar has just handed down his decision. The decision was favorable to the company on all points but one. The court hold that the company had the right to own the Pullman building, the brick yard land and to sell liquor on cars, but h d no right to own Pullman iron and steel stock. No judgment is entered against the company. It is understood that the company will accept the finding of the court in the matter of the stock in the iron and steel company, and will at once dispose of it. CHEAPER LANDS.

SAN FRANCISCO, June i.— Ali thara* Inef special from Manzaniiio says: The number of survivors from the Colima is 26. Three passenger's and two, sailors who were thought to be dead appeared at a point oil the coast Hear Manzaiiillo and will teach here soon. Their names are unknown. The Colima bore 218 people all told, and the death list has now gone up to 187 by official count. This is heavier than heretofore reckoned. The boat making the rescue is the Roman Rtibio, belonging to the government which found them at Coahuayana. The rescued passengers and sailors uoW on her Will be borne to the north by the steamer Baracoutah, The remaining 21 will have already left for the north With San Francisco as their ultimate destination, by the steamer San Juan, The Colima is apparently a tobal loss, and lies nt the bottom of the sea, about 30 miles below Mauzanillo, beside the coral reef which stove in the side of the vessel. The steamer lies on her side in GOO metres of water. The Colima had onboard $100,000 in Mexican dollars, shipped from Mazatlan. A Dangerous Coast. The coast in the neighborhood of Mauannillo seems a fatal spot. Nearly all the wrecks on the Panama route have occurred within 100 miles riurli or south of Manzaniiio. Three vet Is have been lost in that neighborhood, and these are the only large vessels of the Panama line that have been wrecked. Another remarkable fact is that all were lost in still weather, indicating some peculiar condition of the currents setting in at this point and driving the vessels in upon the shore. The first and most noted of the losses was the wreck of the Golden Gate which was burned and wrecked only a few miles north of Mau- zanillo. In this wreck the loss of life exceeded 200, and it has gone down in history as the greatest marine horror of the coast. The cause of this wreck has never been definitely settled. It occurred in 1862. The Granada went down June 22, 1669; at Point Tejupan, some miles north of Manzaniiio. No lives were lost, but the vessel, which in rounding the point went ashore, was a total loss. The Nicaragua, one of the Mexican coasting fleet of the Pacific Mail company, was driven ashore on the Salvador coast near Acajutla, by wind and currents. 6P SfttsHAM. Important Decision on the Chinese Immigration Law. NEW YORK, June 1.—In the United States circuit court Judge Lacombe entered a final order sending Lee Yuen back to China on the ground that he had entered this country as a laborer. Lee Yuen had been in this country be. fore and returned in August, 1894, by way of Burlington, Vt. He was arrested in this city while at work as a cigarmaker, It was held on his behalf that Lee Yuen was a merchant. Judge Lacombe's precedent is a decision by Judge Coxe to the effect that China' men engaged in unskilled labor are laborers within the meaning of the act, no matter whether they own m inter* eat in a store 'or not.

It was moored near the head of the river and broke from its moorings and carried them into swift running water. BOILER EXPLODED, _ the BeAol Sift**** ftt *Vr*8hlngton. „„„ », Ma? 80.—The ffeffiaifia of Walter Q. (ifeehatti, the de'ftd &§&&* f etary of Btate* abcompahied by Presi* dent Cleveland and by membets.of his cabinet and the sorrowing family^ left Washington at !S:l6 o'clock On a Special train for Chicago, where the final interment will take place, The funeral tervice here \vas devoid o£ ostentation^ but this fact only served to deepen the profound impression which it created, In life Secretary Greshanx had loved niost the military oaf eet of his ardent youth* and of all his titles Jiftd been fondest of that of general, which he had won upon the battlefield. Itt death he was wrapped in the stars and stripes and giveia a soldief*s funeral, The Whole city Mourned the Nation's toss. Every department of the government was closed; every flag in Washington fit half mast. All the regular troops in and about Washington—cavalry, artil* lery and infantry^escorted the remains to the railroad station. Mrs. Gresham, the stricken wife, was so overcome by her grief that she was unable to attend the services at the White House. The casket .was borne to the executive mansion through the files of military, and there deposited in the East room, Mr. Cleveland and his cabinet, as honorary pallbearers, accompanying the remains thither. The . East room had been draped with a profusion of American flags and decorated with palms and potted flowers. The black catafalque and the blftck seal rug on which it rested were banked with The Rarest and Most Beautiful Flowers. The assemblage was of the most distinguished character, and all were profoundly moved by the simplicity of the service. It consisted merely of the reading of the funeral service of the Methodist Episcopal church by Bishop Hurst, a personal friend of the secretary. When the benediction was said the strains of Cardinal Newman's beautiful hymn, "Lead Kindly Light," trembled on the air, and it was over. With bowed heads those present took a long, last look at the well known features and departed. As the funeral cortege emerged from the White House grounds, the scarlet coated Marine band played "Nearer My God to Thee." The military then took their places tin der command of Major General Ruger and slowly led the way down the av enue to the station, preceded by a band of 40 pieces mounted on heavy horses. There were four troops of cav airy from Fort Meyer, the marine corp from the navy yard, three companies of infantry, four gun batteries from Washington barracks and four batter ies from Fort Meyer, in all about 1.50C men. As they swung down the avenue to the solemn strains of the funeral dirge, the sidewalks and every available bit of space in the windows overlooking the avenue were lined with people. .While the casket was "being conveyed to the train, the Marine band played "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." As the funeral train left the station, the military departed and the city became quiet and its streets almost deserted. INTERRED AT CHICAGO. The Funeral Services Simple but Impressive. CHICAGO, May 31.—The remains of Walter Q. Gresham were laid in the vault in Oakwoods cemetery during the afternoon, there . to remain until the members of his family have decided upon a place of final interment. The services, conducted by the Rev. S. J. McPhersou of the Second Presbyterian church, were impressive, but simple, consisting merely of scriptural readings, a hymn by the choir and prayer. At their conclusion the remains were temporarily deposited in the receiving vault of the cemetery. No salute was fired, the ceremonies concluding with "taps." The train had been held at Sixty- third street, and the presidential party returned to it and at once started on the return trip to Washington. BAMS, um&m, LUM tout ABD mmics 4mbfose A.
