WILL A6SEf»t It, t» Mo tttth HORRIBLE ACCIDENT. A Farmer's Wife r.UeriUI.v Honstecl AHve. MOUNT PI..KA.SANT, April 20.—On tlie farm of Jos. Allender, six miles west of town, Mrs. Allender was making fcoap and discovered that her clothes were on fire. No assistance was at Land and she was so fearfully burned that she lived but a few hours. The details of the terrible affair are sickening. Her husband was at work in a neighboring field, and no one was .about but four small children. .She screamed for help, and in her despcra^ lion tried to stifle the flames. Her efforts were futile. Clutching at her burning clothes, she ran to the house •where her httle boy, hearing her cries, gave her a blanket in which she rolled herself. : Mr. Allender rushed in at once, and after extinguishing the last spark witk^ water, got her on the bed and hurried to town for doctors. From the .bottom of her feet to the crown of her head the skin and flesh were completely roasted and burned black, with the single exception of a small dace between-the shoulders and the left side of the face. The flesh on the Blower limbs pealed off in flakes, while the body was black and crisp. The _hair was complete!}' burned away, excepting a little on top of the head. ,She died a few hours later.

All day yesterday and through the nitrht tele- '•grams of condolence from all over the United States came pouring in, showing how well he stood in the estimation of the people. Mayor A. \V. Jacques issued a proclamation calling upon all of the business men to close their stores on the afternoon of the funeral and this was heartily responded to. Many distinguished persons, from both the state and nation, with whom the senator had been associated were present at the funeral. All the public buildings, as well as many business and private houses, were draped in mourning-. MAY LOSE HIS JOB. it*** Srathift the trittftifttnm. April 29.— Nicaragua has refused to accept the British ultimatum. Th6 thirty days given Nicaragua to make reply .having expired, the British forces at once took possession of the town. The garrison at Corihto, which consisted of a small force of 150 or 200 men, were withdrawn to the interior, leaving the British in peaceable possession of the town. No opposition was made to their landing, but it is stated by those familiar with the Nicaraguan people that any attempt on the part of the British forces to penetrate to the interior, or, in short, to leave the environments of Corinto, will be resisted by Nicaragua. LATER— Later dispatches announce ihat upon the landing ct the British troops the Nicaragua^ left Corinto and the government declared Corihto a c!osed port. The authorities went to San Juan del Sur, cutting the wires connecting the cable port with Corinto, leaving the British forces no way of communicating to the home government except by boat to the cable station. Matters are complicated now so that it may be necessary for the United States to take a hand to protect her commercial interests, which are injured by the closing of the port at Corinto.

On January 7 action of the order was served. Johnson it is alleged neglected and refused to make the report, and he must now answer for contempt. CHANGE IN OWNERS. Talk of DlsnilsftlnR iho Manitoba fcocal Govel-nluout. WINNIPEG, Manitoba, April 28.— Politicians here anticipate a renewed crisis as the outgrowth of the school question. Attorney General Sifton took part in the election contest in Haldimand and freely discussed the remedial order of the dominion government. It is freely rumored, and the rumor is of considerable credence, that the dominion government, is discussing the question of dismissing the entire Manitoba local government and forming a new one which the dominion government can control. It will be the business of this government to tie the hands of the Manitoba | lancl ' legislature by refusing to bring for- here ' ward the school question in any shape until after the dominion election. The Free Press, in a double-leaded article, says such a proceeding would set the province on fire, and that many people believe it would sound the death knell of the dominion government.

WASflittGfojr, April 2?.—Kivaragwn's last hope of assistance from the I'nited States in her controversy with tit-cut Britain to prevent the seizure of Corinto has vanished. Dr. Guzman, the Nicaraguan minister, had nti interview with Secretary Oreshnm. in which the secretary gave him to understand very clearly that the United States would not interfere in the case as it stands. The position taken by the president in this matter is that the dispute is one entirely between Great Britain and Nicaragua, and the United .States has no call to interfere unless there should be committed acts injurious to Amer ican interests in Niearagiin. or there should be shown a disposition by Great Britain to acquire Nicaraguan territory On each of these points a favorable assurance has been had from Great Britain, and it is said all that can now be done is to wait the course of events. LKO.V, Nicaragua, April 28.—The troops are ordered to be ready to march on an hour's notice. A semiofficial telegram from Managua says the government is ready to pay the money England asks, but objects to making the apology demanded. A telegram to that effect is said to have been sent to England. The English vessels are in port, but it is believed that there will be fighting. MANAGUA, Nicaragua, April 2.s—Th government has assurances that it wil receive voluntary subscriptions to more than enough pay the British claims There is great excitement and 2,00i men are ready to march to Corinto a a moment's notice.

Russia cannot allow to be executed, informed Russia that if Japan yielded to the demands of Russia, France and Germany it would expose herself to a revolution, as the Japanese were intoxicated with their victories and would assent to no concessions. In spite of this, Russia has determined to maintain the demand. FEARFUL EXPLOSION. Man and Team Blown to Atoms by Nitroglycerine.

" ' AVashington dispatch: The Nica- ragruan minister here has received a cablegram from his government announcing the arrival at Corinto, Nicaragua, of two British warships with the expressed purpose of enforcing i the demands contained in the British ! ultimatum. Just how this is to be done the minister was not informed. The indications now are that Nicaragua will offer a passive resistance to the Sritish demands for some time at least, and meanwhile the United States will do nothing but await the development of events. In » recent leading editorial the London Times, after admitting that Japan evidently intends to cripple and humiliate China in n manner seriously af fectipg European interests, insists that the diplomatic history of Europe does not benr out the pretension that any power or powers are entitled to dictate the terms of peace between two nations. Jt adds: "Great Britain's interests are Jnyplved quite as much as Russia^, but we find no stipulations in th.e, treaty of peace warranting oyr interference at the cost of the Of J»paj}.» of of iff « Critical ConcMlfifl tx^toos, April 3?.— the Standard's tteflta correspondent says: "The ttnsstan minister in T*ekin has been to nepotinte a cession twrritorjr to balance the (acquisitions.

I'Ktttx, April 28.— Affairs here are in a critical condition. Some generals favor continuing the war. Censorsob- ject tcithe terms of the treaty of peace, nnd claim the emperor alone could decide on them. The ratification of the treaty is uncertain. If ratified, it is feared there will be trouble with the nrmy. TOKIO, April 28. — Russian and French fleets are prepared to stop Japanese communication unless Japan abandons nllrclaims on the territory of 'Manchuria. An effort is being made to unite America and England against Russia, France and Germany. It is pointed out that America has greater interests in the cast than the countries named. Loxnotf, April 28.— The Shanghai correspondent of the Times telegraphs: "Russia has requested the Chinese government to delay for a few days the ratification of the peace convention entered into by the Chinese and Japanese plenipotentiaries atShimono- seki. I believe that Japan was surprised by the protests made by Russia, France and Germany against the permanent annexation by Japan of territory on the Chinese mainland. The dispatch of the latest Japanese expedition to Port Arthur was ordered for the purpose of allaying the discontent that exists in that portion of the army, which has not shared in the honors of of the campaign, and also to force the Pekin government to ratify the peace treaty." V, A Pekin dispatch to the Times says it is the cession of southern Manchuria as provided for in the treaty of peace that is chiefly opposed in the Chinese capital. The agreement to this end made by Li Hung Chung specially grieves the emperor, because the province of. Manchuria is the ancestral portion of the empire. There is less opposition regarding the cession of the island of Formosa, which is a new province. The other articles of the treaty are regarded as bearable. Several governors and some of the generals oppose submission to the public proclamation that has been made. SdLVitl. JAcfctn* fclpjtf* If red.

TEXTILE SITUATION. Nine Thousand Operatives Idle in Hlioitn- Island, PitoviDEXCK, R. I., April S3.—The. extile situation in Olneyville reached a crisis this afternoon, .when 300 weavers employed by the Providence and National worsted mills struck,' and more than 2,000 other operatives were obliged to cease work, as both mills at once shut down. The principal owner of these'two mills,, which comprise the biggest plant in Olneyville, is Chas. Fletcher, a leading- member of the Rock Island Manufacturing Club, which organization recently agreed to close their mills at the first sign of a strike in any. mill. About 9.000 operatives will be affected 1 by such a step.

A TERRIFIC STORM. INCOME TAX. Tiic Whole Oucstion to be Opened Again.
