Some of the of the surrounding country attended with the intention of breaking up the alliance, and they interrupted the speakers by letting windows down with a crash. William Bolles stopped their pro- ceedings. Sheridan Stoner aud others of ;he crowd went outside, but returned, Btoner having put a pistol in his overcoat pocket The gang stood around Stoner with pistols in their hands, and taunted Tollns, who finally broke a bench leg off nd struck Stoner, who retreated shooting. A wild panic ensued, ladies fainted and several attempted to jump out of the win- dowsand over the banisters. Bolles fell, shot through the heart, while FFanlt Wells, of Saluda, was shot through the elbow. Mrs. Bolles went into convulsions, and dur- ing the confusion Stoner escaped, after knocking dowu George Shea, a pi ominent teacher, who interfered. The strangest thing is that he passed through Kabb in the moi uing and to a crowd of forty related the affair, yet he was al- lowed to go on unmolested. He is still at large but a sheriff's posse is after him. Mra Bolles is in a condition. Did the Mormons Do It?

The Story of the Remarkable Anti-Liquor Crusade In Lathrop, Ran with Whisky and Beer The Ardent Wai all Promptly Salted. Mo., Feb. temperance crusade in this village is the all absorbing topic, for the good reason that nearly fifty of the best known women in town are liable to be called before the grand jury to answei a charge of trespass and riotoua conduct Their social rank will uot save them, as the next grand jury will be drawn by offlclali who are terribly Incensed at the recent out- break, "There will be bloodshed here said one gentleman. "Just as soon as Pros- ecuting Attorney Cross issues the warrants jhe fun will commence, and any attempt to jlace one of those people under arrests will met with a resistance that will teiutinate, n a riot. There are a large number of men conuected with the temperance people who will kill any man who attempts to serve a warranj on their wivea and daughters and who have already made threats to that ef- fect" Not a woman's Crnsade, Says Crou. Yesterday John Cross, the prosecuting attorney, said: "Tha mistaken impression las gone abroad that this is a woman's cru- sade, when it was really started and engi- neered by men, and during all the disturb- ance there was present a man for every woman. There were present and actively engaged in the disturbance J.' T. Carml- chael, a Baptist minister; Jacob Bohart, Sr.; Dr. Mnndy, who had an ar and want- ed to smash the billiard tables; Editor Mc- Kee, of The Lathrop Monitor; B. F. Coeh- ran, an keeper; E. Q. Kinney, a former gi and juryman; Charles P. Jones, cannier of the T.athrop bank, and twenty others. The editor of The Monitor is re- sponsible for the outbreak, as he incited the outrages by attacks on the city officials in his newspaper." -How the Crusade Started. The crusaders offer the following as hav- ing formed the basis for their actions: The immediate cause of the outbreak was a stab- bing affray on Jan. 27, when John L. Brooks, a resident of T.athrop, was severely cut by Abe Scruggs, a faiuier, while both were in- toTirated. Tn discussing the affair one day Brooks' wife remarked to a neighbor that if she had any one to help her she would break into every saloon in town and pour the liquor into the street The neighbor replied: "I will go with you and can get twenty-five other women to go." The women Organize. It was then that a public meeting was pulled, paper asking the women of IMhrop to pledge heuiselveb to exterminate the liquor traffic in their town. The day of the trouble the women gathered together at the Opera house, and, headed by the Rev. Mr. Car- michael, marcbed down the street. When tha women reached Ward's saloon they stopped on finding the door locked and a crowd gathered inside, and had they not been urged would have gone no further. But they were, and being ashamed to back out, thoy, simply wont wild, und nmanhing the glass in the door unlocked it and7 went in. The crowd in the saloon had partially vanished, but Ward, the proprietor, stood guard. He made a futile attempt to ex- postulate, but he was swept from the field, and the door which separated from the back room oF harroom from the billiard room was burst open, A Bottlini: Smashing Bee. By this time the women had provided themselves with various instruments. Some had axes, others hatchets, and still more stones. The sight of the bcor bottles and whisky barrels incited the women to ri? newed action. The whole thing developed into a each woman vying with the other in Boeing how much damage she ld dn, woman boasting that aha harl smashed Over a hundred bottles. The stuff was brought to the edge of the sidewalk, where some difficulty was experienced in smashing the bottles, so the men were on to carry up stones and lay them on the sidewalk to hit the bottles on. An they broke the beer flew In every direction, deluging the women and covering their dresses with the liquor. The Liquor Promptly Salted. "Did yon too howl smashed that barrel of asked a pretty girl as she stood talking to a group yesterday aftemoon. "I tell you, it did me good to use the hatchet." W hen the whisky was being poured into the street it formed in little pools, and a brisk can trade was begun by boys and men, eveiy sort of tools being pressed into use to scoop up the whisky. Whon the womon saw what was going on they appropriated a ban el of salt from a neighboring grocery and, knock- ing in the- head, sprinkled the salt in the liquor. Crnaaderi Sned. The situation now may be said to be quiet, hut It In thn quiet before the storm. Thomas Ward, one of the saloon keepers, has filed an Information making a criminal charge against every man and woman in the crowd, and they will be arrested. Ward has" also begun suit on a claim fur for the liquor destroyed. City OffiolaU Divide Vp. It has beon openly charged that the city officers were bribed not to molest the saloon keepers. An examination of the record in the mayor's Office shows that an arrange- ment was entered into between the saloon men and the officials, whereby the former were to go to the mayor's office once a month, plead guilty to selling liquor, anc be fined. This arrangement has car- ried ont for the last six months, the men being fined each, which was divided bo tween the mayor, prosecuting attorney and marshal as foes.

Secretary Elaine and Sir Julian Pauucefote, the British min- ister, conferred on the subject of the expira- tion of the modus Vivendi permitting Amer ican fishermen to enter Canadian waters. It is understood that Secretary Elaine is in no aaste to renew the agreement. By the time the fishing season begins in May it is be- lieved that a satisfactoi v settlement of the controversy will have been concluded. The secretary insists that rigorous measures shall taken to prevent a repetition of the out- rages perpetrated by Canadian vessels upon American fishermen. Until such a stipula- tion is secured from the English government there is no likelihood of a resumption of the modus Vivendi. To Try the Vesuvius.

This was on the hurricane deck, to which we had retreated. There wore ten persons on, the raft and myself and B. Hood in the water.
