JOHNS Atig 20. i is reported the inhabitants of fishing villages along the coast are dv- ing by hundreds of an unknown epi- demic. Nothing has so far proved a cure, nor has any alleviative been found. The disease marches from house to house, victim to victim, wilh nothing to stay its awful progress. The first reports of the epidemic reached here two weeks ago on the arrival of the regular fortnightly coast- ing steamer, which calls at several of the more important fishing stations on the French shore. The Captain reported to the health authorities that while touching at Lapoile he was in- formed a strange epidemic had broken out in Coachman's Cove. The people thought it a virulent type of called black There being no regular physician on the coast, nothing definite is known, except that not a single person so far attacked had recovered. Other pecul- iar features were that many cases of of death ensued in thirty-six hours after the disease appeared and rapid putrefaction set in the moment life left the body. The popu- lation of Coachman's Cove is but a little over 150. Yet nearly half that number had died since the, first out break. The disease has broken out in many other villages also. by a Cliiiinmnii. By Associated Press.) s OKOVIU-E, Aug. Cor- oner Gu i dory received information that (hero was the dead body of a man in a cabin on a ranch near in this county, and an investigation was asked. The Coroner went to the and found the body of a Frenchman named Louis Phillipe Billard, aged GO, with indications that he had been murdered. On investigation it vas found that he had Feven wounds on the head, made by a sharp, heavy in- strument. Circumstances pointed to a Chinaman, one of a crow of twenty, working on a ditch near by as the murderer, who was arrested and brought to town, and is now in jail. It appears that this Chinaman had been stealing fruit and the deceased had trundle with him some time pro vions, and had expressed a fear that the Chinaman would do him harm. LOCALTlNTELLIGENCE. THE GRGAT STRIKE Likely to Extend to the West. (MCRESSIOAAL PROCEEDINGS. A Nlntrnlap evening Eddie Graff, who living with his stepmother and sisters on Center street, went to his room about his usual hourof retiring, spread his rtiK for his little dog, and, after remaining there a short time, left the house and has not been heard from since people are utterly unable to understand whv he should leave in that way, as none of them thought him to be dissatisfied, and as he was of age he could have cone at any time, with the best wishes of the eutire family.

There is no instrument so efficient in producing the highest polish on wood or glass as to be compared with the human hand. Lenses, after every other appliance has exhausted its fer- tility, receive their finishing poli-h from the hand. Piano frames, after having been filled and sandpapered and "floated" with varnish, receive Iheir final polish from the hand. In the family the mother's hand is the great polisher. It keeps little faces and hands clean it keeps little and knii-kerljockers dean; jt closes holes over knees and toes; it fills hungry mouths with wholesome and palatable food; it tucks in the sleeping children at night, and out the cold it soothes weary limbs to rest; it binds up cuts and burned and bruised fingers; it holds the cooling draught to fevered lips; it gentl> closes tho eyes that look upon the sun no more. In a figure, the mother's hand pnlishes the minds and charac ters her children. Her fingers out the letters on the block, in the primer, the page in history, the noble idea to be attained, the far-off goal to be reached, the rocks to he shunned, tho rnaelbtroins to be avoided. CELLIJLOID7 The Process of Manufacture Described. The Scientific American says: The manner in which celluloid is made in France is as follows: A huge roll of paper is unwound slowly, and, wUjle unwinding, is saturated with a mix- ture of five parts of sulphuric and two parts of nitric acid, which is carefully sprayed uixjn the The effect of this balli is to change the cellulose in HIP paper into pyroxxline. The next process is the exiling of the excels of acid in the by pressure and its washing with plenty of water. It ia then reduced to a pulp and bleached, after which it is strained, and then mixed wilh from 20 to 40 per cent, of its weight in water. Then follows another mixing and grinding after which the pulp is spread in thin sheets, which are put under enormous hydraulic pressure and squeezed until dry as tinder. These sheets are then put between heated rollers and come out in quite elastic strips, which are worked up into the various forma in which celluloid ia made. The Quay Resolution To Be Taken Up To-morrow. The Pennsylvania Prohibition Convention. Tho Xow York Central (Strike. By Associated Press.] NEW YORK, Aug. Sargent this morning said that a meeting of the Federation of Kail road Men will be held at Terre Haute on Saturday, with the undoubted result that a strike on the entire Vanderbilt system will be ordered. As he and his three asso- ciates had indorsed the action of the General Executive Board of the Knights of Labor, he thoroughly be- lieved the Supreme Council of the Federation would sustain it. lie also said tho action of Webb last night in adhering so firmly to tne stand taken rendered the action they had taken necessary. Webb's arbitrary unethoih and utter refusal to arbitrate the situ- ation made it useless to deal with him any longer. Vice-President Webb this morning said lie did not believe the impending strike would ho nearly so gigantic us the Federation and the Knights of Labor would have people believe. Webb did not doubt the Supreme Council of the Federation would call out the men, but he was of tho opinion that tho number who would respond woU'd not be so great after all. A Htrlncnit Moiioy Market. By Associated Press.] NEW YOKK, Aim. stringency in the money maiket to-day WI.B sharper than it has been since the Mav panic of 1884. At the opening of the stock exchange tlio brokers who were long of stocks and had borrowi d money ou them, were glad to renew their loans at per cent, per annum. Even this lale would not bring a re- newal of the loan in many cases, and before 11 o'clock many borrowers re- ceived notices that their loans had been called in. Brokers who bought stocks yester- day in anticipation of relief from the Treasury Department, tried to obtain funds to pay for their purchases, but were unable to do so, and a combined demand caused a large crowd to re- main around the money post in the exchange all day. Early loans were made at 20 per cent., but the supply at this figure was soon exhausted and the rates moved up to 40, to 50, to 60, to 70, to 75, to 90, and Before 1 o'clock the prevailing rate was 90 per cent., or equal to legal interest, and a premium of one-fourth per cent, per day. CongrrHHional Matters. Dy Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Aug. Senate this morning, after spending some ime in considering Plumb's resolution for prohibiting liquor selling or drink- ng in the Senate wing of the Capitol, took up the tariff bill. Nothing was said about Quay's '-order of business" resolution, the debate on which was Degun yesterday. The failure to take up the Quay res- olution this morning was due to a gen- iral desire for a party conference or 'aucus as to a line of action. It will likely be called up to-morrow. HOUSE. In the House Buchannan called up the bill for the adjustment of the ac- counts of laborers arising under the eight hour law, which was discussed a while and went over without action.

Mnil and Express says: We have imported let's than half a million ounces of silver since the price has risen 25 cents an ounce, and the London price has been forced up to the highent figure known in twelve years. It does not look as if we real'y needed another interna- tional conference about silver, when Kanm By Press. WASHINGTON, Aug. Itauni investigation was resumed this nurn- ing. Cooper, who made the charges, made a brief explanation cf his POM- tion, after which Katiui look tho stand. The witness denied that any employe of tho Pension Office, eave himself, ever owned stock in the Refrigerator Company, and consequently the charge that employes had been promoted be- cause of such ownership was false. Cooper demanded to see the books of the company, but Kaum refused to produce them. He was willing the members of the committee should in- spect the stock books of the company, but not that it should go into the Record. Mr. Butiiii said Cooper gave to the press everything he got hold of, and had given the public documents intrusted to him for inspection to tho Committee on Rules. Cooper insisted on seeing the books himself, and, upon the committee re- fusing, gathered up his books and papers and left the room. The com- mittee then resumed the investigation on its own hook.
