CHOLERA'S GRASP EELAIED GREAT DANGER STILL FROM RE- TURNING FUGITIVES. THE SITUATION IN ITALY DELIETED TO BE WORSE THAN SUCCESSFUL EXPERIMENTS AT THE PHABO. Special Dispatch by Cable from Our Own Correspondent. LOXDOS, Aug. Paul G. Bossano, the Interne at the Pharo Hospital who acted as my escort through the hospital on my recent visit, and whose dis- patch I forwarded for publication on Sat- urday last, sent me last night a second message from Marseilles, more reassuring than nis first. He says that Prof. Reitaoh, who has of late been eiperimemting on dogs with microbes, confided to him last night the information that he had discov- ered a method by which he could study the microbe alive In a microscope, and, what is still more Interesting, that he has found a method for bly, as the Professor real grav- ity of the disease as it shows itself In any patient, this method being iimply an ex- amination of the dejections, in a certain through tho microscope. He keeps tbo details of his method a secret, and Dr. Bossano bebeves ho is the only person to Prof. Reitsch has communicated the fact of the discovery in general terms. Ifeantvhile Drs. Bouvenet and Vlnav, have gone to Marseilles from Lyons, ore still experimenting with Intraveinous Injections. Dr. Mazet. who also is from Lyons, yesterday experimented simulta- neously with vapor baths in oases of algid- is, cases in whioh tbe patient has been reduced to a condition of extreme cold. Dr. Bossano Is unable yet to advise me of any encouraging results from these latter experiments. Another of the original 10 Augustinian Sisters has fallen ill at the Pharo. But the number of patients there has much dimin- ished since last week, when tho returning hot weather had increased tno death rate Diul discouraged every ono In Marseilles. Thero were only five deaths in Marseilles on Sunday night, nnd, at tho time of Dr. Bossauo's writing on Monday night, there had beun only six for that day. From the various infected villages in the Bouches du Rhone ho says the reports are reassur- ing, but he Insists again that great danger threatens the public from the return of tbo fugitives to tho unhealthful atmos- phere of tho city. The news received at Marseilles from Italy continues to report cases of cholera and deaths from the disease. The belief, still prevails there that the actual situa- tion in Italy is worse than tho reported, for it is remembeied how frightful is the sanitary condition of many towns, and that among the fugitives from Toulon and Marseilles are many Italians of careless habits of life and extended residence in the filthiest quarters of tho citit's. DEATHS THE SUFFERING CITIES. TOULOX. Aug. were two deaths from cholera hero last nlgnt and only one to- lay. Tbo last three deaths have been among tbe returned fugitives. The record of the Bon Ko- contre Hospital today Is: Admitted. 1; cur-d. 5: deaths, none; under treatment, 25. The re- cord of tho St. Miindna Hospital for to-day is: Admitted, 2: cured, 7; deaths, 1; under treat- ment, 78. Thero were three deaths from typhoid fever and two from cholera to-day at La Seyno. MARSEILLES, AUR. Is now made ;ubllc that there were numerous Cftjes of cholera In tho hospital hero In 1SH3, many of which wero fatal. Tho fact, however, was sup- prefeed In order to prevent alarm. Thoattond- autswere sworn to secrecy. Thero were three deaths hero lost night, and four up to o'clock this evening. As many as of the pcoplo who Ued at the appearance of tho epl- lemic have returned to their homes. GENEVA, Aug. case of cholera has occurred here.

HOW HE WOULD RESTRICT THE POWERS OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS. BnurmaHAM, AUJT. 6. In connection with the great reform demonstration here yes- terday an enthusiastic meeting was hold in tho evening at Bfngley Hall. Fully people wore present. Speeches were made by tho Right Hon. John Bright and tho Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, President of tho Board of Trade. Mr. Bright said tho Torv majority in tho House of Lords was actuated by the samo bitter hatred of the Liberals as In 1832. "Who wore tho peers he asked. They were the spawn of the blunders, tho wars, and tho corruption of tho dark ages of our history. They had entered tbe temple of honor, not through the temple- of merit, but through tho Eepulchres of their an- cestors.- They wcro no better than their fpthere; some of them were worse, for their privileges had produced Ignorance and arrogancy." Tho reform of tho Houso of Lords, Mr. Bright de- clared, was urgent and Inevitable. Tho creation of new peers to pass tho Franchise bill would onlv get rid of tho present difficulty. What was wanted was a limitation of tho -veto power of the Houso of Lords. Should tho people submit or should they curb tbo nobles as their fathers had curbed the Kings of England? Mr. Bright then explained tbo manner In which no would like to seo th" power of tbu House nf Lords restricted. Ho would allow tho peers to retain their present -rowers during tho first session tbat a bill should bo presented to them, but he would absolutely preclude them from vetoing the Franchise bill or any bill a second time. Many no doubt, would think him too lenient to tho peers, but ho preferred remedies which, while effectual, would cause tho lenst disturbance to existing Institutions. Mr. Chamberlain mado a long nnd powerful attack upon the peers. Tho dlvlno right of he snlfl, bad been acknowledged to bo dangerous. Tho divine right of the poors was a ridiculous figment. If t'-e Lords remained ob- stinate In their opposition to the popular -will tho present agitation would continue to tho bit- ter end. He looked forward, ho said, with eager hope to tho result of this agitation. England, tbo chosen home of a self-governed ocoplo, would never be subservient to the Insolent pretensions of n hereditary class. Themeetlntrdisplftyed Itsnpnroval of the senti- ments expressed by the speakers by frequent and enthusiastic applause. A resolution was adopted denouncing the action of the Houso of Lords in rejecting tho reform of the franchise. LOWING AT THE CAPITAL CURIOUS SOURCE FOR A LABOR PROCLAMATION. THE "NATIONAL EIGHT-HOUR COMMITTEE" WHICH ASSUMES TO SPEAK IN ELAINE'S FAVOE FOR THE WOtlKINGMEN. WASHINGTON, Aug. great deal of happiness Is In store for that portion of the Re- publican press which Is whooping It" up for the man with tho bedaubed record. Another acquisition has been mado to tho column of kulghta with tin battle oics, and another broad grin will creep over tho expansive features of tho Hon. Stephen B. Elklns as ho contemplates tho progress of tbo worklngmcn's racket" against Cleveland, as it la characterized In Blaine circles. All tho vagabonds In politics are creeping into tho Blalno camp, and their number waa Increased to- day by exactly Dve individuals who met hero In Washington and solemnly Issued a proclamation In behalf of tho so-called "National Eight- hour In which they recom- mend working men to vote for Blntne. What claims tho National Eight-hour Committee has to speak for worklngmon has not been definitely ascertained even after the most diligent Inquiry. Nobodv hero ever heard of tbo committee before to-night as nn organiza- tion of Influence. It is regarded as ono of those mushroom affnlrs which tiro springing up wher- ever a few seedy tramps can found to work' tbo labor dodgo for tbe National Republican Committee. This admits the now-found love of tho Blaine people for laboring men, saying In Its pronunclamento that. for tho flist time in our political history, tho platform of the Repub- lican Party indorsed specific labor meas- ures." Then It saplently observes that In tho election of Grover Cleveland we should regard all hopes of further legislation In the Interest of labor futile. With Cleve- land President and a Southern Cabinet our course for the tlmo bolnir would be lost." This reference to Southern matters U a drive at such Southerners as would not indorso some sor of a labor measure In whlnh ox-Congressman Murcb, of Maine, was Interested last Winter, and which, hy tho way. received tho most snvHgo thrusts from n Republican of New-York, Mr. Hiscock. The kmcl of persons to whom tho managers or the Republican Party of to-day nro catering with blind zeal is fairly illustnitcd In this at- tempt to create political capital, for the Natlon- ol Committee is at tbo bottom of It, though It will bo tho regular thing for the committee to dcnv It. Tho signers of this amusing declaration are Thompson II. Murcn, of Maine. Chairman; H. S. Linker.of Pennsylvania. Ferdinand F. Bogia. of Delaware; John H. Pat- terson, of New-York, and Dyer F. Lum. of Mas- sachusetts. Secretary. Of Bog-la and Patterson nothing Is known which should entitle them to recognition as tho advisors of working men. Messrs, Murch, Lum, and Linker have each a rec- nue, decided to issue an address urging- tbo organization of branches throughout the Union. J. W. Bearle, of Maryland, was elected President: Charles E. Allen, of Now- York, Recording Secretary; C. A. VermllHon, of Indiana, Corresponding Secretary, and Mayor T. A. Mitchell, of New-Jersey, Treasurer. Tho so-called stampede of worklngmen to tho Blalno Batty was characterized as buncombe and 03 part of thqjrame of bluff which its managers aro playing. The records and peculiarities of the National Eight Hour Committee wore discussed, and the one opinion prevailed that they repre- sented nobody In politics but themselves. BUTTER AND MILK CHEAP.

Several firemen and sailors have been Injured while fighting- tho Barnes. ______ Tho King's palace, a largo three-story, quadrangular building-, somewhat heavy and monotonous in style.

Standard saya this morning: Wo are in a position to state that tho negotiations between France and China were definitively broken off on Sunday." Tbo Timu publishes a dispatch from Foo Chow says: "Foo Chow Is quieter. China has offered to pay an Indemnity of about M. Patenotre, tho French Minister, has refused. Twelve Chinese gunboats have been placed In position at Foo Chow. Ad- miral Courbet, tho Fiench commander, 13 in a furious state of mind, and has done hia utmost to provoke war." The Marquis Tseng had a conference with Earl Gronvllle to-day nnd asked him to Join a Eu- ropean mediation In tho troubles between Franco and China, but Earl Granvlllo refused bis request and ordered that increased precautions be taken to guard tho English residents In Canton, Foo- Chow, and Shanghai. PA BIS, Aug. Slide states that Admiral Courbet's squadron has taken posses- sion of the harbor and mines at Keo Lung, a town and treaty port of China, In Formosa. It Is reported thnt Prime Minister Ferry has sent his final ultimatum to Pekln. THE IRISH DYNAMITE POLICY. LONDON, Aug. Three packages of dynamite, wrapped In the Irishman newspaper, were found In tho letter box at the Nottingham Post Office Sunday uignt. The packages con- tained a pound of dynamite and were furnished with a fuse to which a cap was attached. It la supposed that the packages were intended to ex- plode by a fall or when they were stamped. Tho quantity of dynamite was sufficient to havo wrecked tho building. The wero stamped with the words, "British Dynamito Company. Glasgow." John Daly, tho convicted dynamiter, has been Interviewed by a representative of tho press. Ho says that ho was ono of four conspirators whoso movements wero directed from America Tne bombs that wero found In his possession a' tho tlmo of his arrest wero handed to him on a street in Liverpool by a fellow conspirator, who battened away. Tho bombs wore not lor use In Birmingham, but In London, whore Daly would have handed them to another conspirator. Daly suspects that ono of tbo conspirators turned In- former. Members of tho society who have ar- rived from America havo their eyes on this man and will Interview him. The police have received Information that a Catholic priest is coming to England trora Amor- lea In disguise as an emissary of tho Irish Vigi- lance Committee. Ho Is described as being 3o years of age, 6 feet 7 Inches In height, and as possessed of a clear, fresh completion. hen a fuU-flodgcd candidate for tho Forty-sixth Jonirress on the Greenback Labor ticket, suc- ceeding1 in defeating Eugene Halo on nn Issue which Involved tho Maine Ring, of which Mr. Maine waa a recognized member. Mr. Murch served, without special distinction, ono term In :orgress and. after falling in on enterprise n Boston which was devoted to vltuallnir and otherwise refreshing tho cultured Bos- ton Btomach, he drifted back to Washington and In tho Forty-seventh Congress became a langer-on in tho lobby. Tho Democrats of tho present Congress recognized hl3 worthleesnoss ay neither giving him nn office or Otherwise ma- :-erlally advancing tho financial prosperity of tbo Murcn family. Mr. Lum was a clerk. In tho Forty-seventh Congess, to tbo committee to Inquire into tho causo of tho depression of labor, of- which Murch was a member. Ho also did some correspondence for l New-York weekly paper. Mr. Linker has long been an employe in ono of the Government de- resigning his position, a doputyshlp under Clerk McPhorson In the last Congress, nnd returning to bis old position when tho Dcmocruts Murch was recently employed by tho National Republican Committee to aid in pushing an ag- frresslve campaign, nnd ho himself gave It out tant he was to go down among tbe West Vir- ginians. Visitors to tho Capital last Spring perhaps noted a hungry-looking crowd of men Longing1 about the entrance to Gen. Rosccrans's Military Committee room. Nobody at that tlrao ever Imagined that there was tho nucleus of a NtttionalElght-hour Committee In that llttlo group which manifested such intense interest in the General's welfare and in certain finan- cial questions not remotely associated with boarding house nnd whisky bills. But tho Elkins-Blolne methods of managing tho politics of u onco great party turn up eomo queer char- acters and some remarkablo jranlzntlons." Sonio apology, perhaps, may bo necessary forgiving such ascmd-off to this latest adjunct to the Blnino party, butas the drums will beat another rub-a-dub In the Blaine press over tho Ovo new recruits. It is only fair to let the plumed knights know whether they are to keep step to the Rogues' March" or a pleco of genu- ine music In marching with these persons. ENGLAND'3 DUTY IN EGYPT.

Mr Gladstone, in moving tbo credit of to'provldo for an expedition to tbe boudan. said tnat tho purpose of the expedition was merely to relieve Gen. Gordon and not to crush the JUnhdl.

Tbo flrat thing done was to ballot for a committee to wblch to refer the bill for the revision of tho Constitution. Tho ETtrcmo Left refused to vote, and reproached the majorltv with exercising undue pressure. The session was throughout violently uproari- ous. Tbo President was unable to preserve order. It Is expected that tho Government will be obliged to tako extreme measures to secure discipline. The congress referred amendments to the Constitution to tho committee, and then adjourned. One of tho amendments offered by tho Extreme Loft proposes the election of a con- stituent assembly. The committee Is compo.-cd entirely of supporters of the Ministry, with M. Dauphin as Presincnt.

American Line steamer Illinois, Capt. Warrington, from Philadelphia July 2fi, arrived at Queenstown to-day, somewhat overdue, owing to tho fact thatahe had been working under reduced steam. Her arrival had been anxiously awaited, as It was hoped she would bring tidings of the steamer Monarch. TRYING TO RAISE FUNDS. Tho National Finance Committee of the Republican Party Is laying tho foundation for B scare for the property owners of tho District In Its efforts to raise campaign funds. Not oniy aro tho clerks In tho departmcntallnformed that their contributions will be received and receipted for but business men and propoity holders la tho District are Invited to pay what- ever amount they may seem flt. Tho circulars to tnoso outside of Government employ will. It IP expected, yield tho moat profitable return. This Is on tho theory that It Is to tho Interest of those who have Invested In Washington prop- erty to prevent, If possible, a change of Admln- ietratlon. Tno argument will be made tbat tbe election of a Democratic President means the removal from oluce of Republican employes, and will. It will bo urged, throw on the market a lot of property now partly paid lor by clerks and cause a great local business depression. Tho number of circulars sent to Government employes Is 7.000. An average of If paid, will realize Many clerks will glvo more than and few pay less. Tho result IB being watched with some anxiety In view of the civil service protection now afforded, which practically de- stroys tlie effect of compulsion, real or imagin- ary which has heretofore proved eo patent. Dor- man B. Enton, tho (Jlvll Service Commissioner, Is reported to bavo paid thnt clerks would be un- wise to pay anything to tho Campaign Commit- tee for this election. ho argues, tho Re- publicans win. the clerks cannot bo turned out tor not paying, while If Cleveland is elected, these who contribute will bo moro likely to go than those wlfc do not." Whether Mr Eaton over aalcfy this or not, he Is credited with It In the departments, and the argument Is frequently used among tho employes. Tbo Finance Committee Is not pleased with such sentiments, as Its members do not think they are calculated to promote liberality. Up to dote It Is reported that have been raid, or promised, to the committee. By next pay day the 15th a substantial amount la expected, and the three months Intervening un- til election will. It Is hoped, bring tho amount up to or beyond tbo Jay Hubbcll collections. DEFECTS IN THE CIVIL SERVICE. Although tho Civil Service Commission has been able to make a good show of figures In tho number of candidates who have passed ex- amination successfully, true friends of that re- form are not satisfied with the resultl Thesystem ot apportionment among tbo States, which was adopted as a concession to politicians, prevents. It is contended, tho appointment of many of tbo best class of applicants, many of whom como from States whose quota Is already full, and who therefore ore compelled io stand asldo for others not BO competent, but who happen to belong to States having vacancies. It Is alleged that the standard Is so low and tho examination so cosy that a number who have been barely able to pass arenotcvon fitted to bo good copyists, with tho exception of Secretary Chandler, none of tbe Cabinet officers has yet declined to receive this class of employes, but be on one occasion had to reject four In succession sent to tho Navy De- partment to 1111 vacancies. Candidates from several of tho New-England and tho Middle States, suited In every respect to tho requirements of tho service, who havo passed examination with tho very highest aver- ages, cannot bo appolnted.whlle those from, per- haps, Louisiana or Missouri, with a low average, go forward. This state of affairs must con- tlnuo under tho present law until all tbe State quotas are filled. There aro occasion- ally bright men and women from States with nn undlled quota, but the fact remains that the Government is not getting the best of thoso who pass. This, It Is Insisted, Is not true civil service reform. If the system of ap- portionment Is to be retalnad It Is suggested that tbe defect complained of can bo remedied bv raising the standard so high that a olerk obtained from a far off State, whoso quota Is not full, shall be a jnong the Dest and equal to any from tne other States. OF THE OLEOMARGARINE BIGNED BY GOT. CLEVELAND. MABLBOHODQH, N, T., Aug. Gov. Cleveland signed tho bill -which prohibited tho manufacture and sale of oleomargarine In tho State of New-York, tho cry waa raised that ho was legislating in favor of tho rich against the hard-worklnsr classes. Nine-tenths of tho groccrymon la towns and villages dinged away at every laboring man that camo In their stores, and tho burden of It all was that butter would go up so high that even mechanics would only be ablo to get a mouthful on Thanksgiving. Christmas, and Now Year's Days. In places whoro manufacturing Interests are heavy tho partisan press took up the cry, and the laboring man heard It on every aide that bo was going to bo "robbed" for tho beneflt of a few. The result to date shows conclusively that tho Governor acted wisely and humanely In signing tno Oleomargarine bill. Butter to- day, and for two months past, in ttio prin- cipal dairy-producing counties in New-York State w. and has oeon. worth less money than for several years. Ronorts received yesterday and to-day by tho correspond- ent of THE TIMEB from buttcrmakers and creamery superintendents nnd owners along t he Midland, (Now-York, Ontario and Western.) tho Erie, tho Wallklll Valley, tho New-Enghfcid. Poughkeepsio and Hartford, tho West Shore, Hudson Hiver. and other railroads running In or adjacent to 10 or more of the leading butter- producing counties agree In stating that never nefore havo farmers and creamery men hod such an enormous stock of Al gllt-edgo butter on hand. When tho farmers heard tho news that Gov. Cleveland had signed tho Oleo" bill they, with tho creamery men. wcro elated. They wcro con- vinced that "living" prices would prevail, while the demagogues howled from the housetops that even second-class butter could not possibly bo obtained for loss than 65 cents a pound. Aaa matter of lact, hundreds of tons of tho very best butter that was over made can be bought to- night at from 16 to 20 cents a pound. Tho very choicest creamery creamery stock ranks higher In the trade than farmers' doef, be- cause It runs weeks has been offered at cents at wholesale, with but few takers. In Sullivan. Orange, Ulster, Delaware, Dutch ess, and other counties good butter Is a drug in the market, and tbe producers all hone for better times." They say tbo pricp- has been ruinously low for three months or more, and many are unable to fathom how It Is their great expectations of receiving living" rates arc not being realized. The gist, of tho matter seems to bo this: When the Oleomargarine bill was being vigorously dlf- cussed many cases of sickness occurred in tho river counties, which wero traced directly to tho use of oleo." Two-thirds of tho grocerymen. It is safe to say, sold oleo" half tho tlmo for pure butter, und the result was that many ppoplo became so disgusted and so distrustful that they mudo up thelrminds to get along without butter at all until such tlmo that a low was passed and enforced prohibiting tho manufacture and sale of a deleterious article at best, and hi general a menace to health. Hundreds of dairymen and creamery owners watched tho drift of public sentiment closely. Tho newspapers were scanned with care. Whole- sale houses in New-York and elsewhere sent agents out to make inquiries. Letters wcro sent broadcast to sgot tho feeling of tbe people. Weeks before the bill was signed tho Farmers' Association and tho Farmers' Exchange were fuily persuaded that Gov. Cleveland would follow the wishes of the pcoplo of tho State, Instead of listening to mon- opolists and Interested parties, and so they prepared to toko tlmo by tho fore- lock. Dairymen who for years had kept from 40 to 60 cows each Increased their herds 10 and 15. Tbe outcome was that tho supply of milk along tbe lines of tbe railroads and connecting branches mentioned was greatly Increased. In June, In New-York, the Exchange paid and tho Farmers' Association cents, and in July both paid 2fcS cents. Thero was no money In three figures for the milkmen, goscorMof them who had never mado butter before embarked in the business. Tho result is that their cellars aro full, nnd. in some instances, running over, with a very uno product. Another direct result of Gov. Clove- land's algnnturo bolng attached to tbo Oleo- margarine bill Is that tbe citizens of New-York recolvo purer milk than they ever did before. It does not pay to doctor milk when It Is so plentiful and cheap, and, besides, Inspectors tho farmers, especially along1 tho Erie, closer than ever before. Time was when tbo surplus-milk period In New-York was in tbe months of May, June, and July. Now, according to tbe Information received during tho past two days, iho "surplus" period will cover at least six months. And after all tbo farmers will do fairly well. Tho pasture has been remarkably fine, tho season, as a whole, having been a moist one. Stock bus also been very thrifty. The outlook for all classes In tho butter lino is a cheering one. Butter, tho coming Fall and Winter, will not be very flno. but It will be sold for less money than for many years post. MR. YOSSELER TO STEP OUT HE AGREES TO RESIGN ON THE FIRST OF NEXT MAY. WHY THE CONGREGATION OF A BROOKLYN GERMAN CHURCH ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THEIK PASTOR. The Rov. G. H. Vosseler, Pastor of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church of Brooklyn, will Ftep down and out on tho 1st of liny next. Tho reverend gentleman bos been Identified with his church for the post 14 years, and up to three years ago was very popular. Since that tlmo thoro have boon muttcrlngs, such as that hla ora- torical powers had given out, with a consequent loss of the .church's membership and Influence. For tho past six months there have been added rumors of entanglements with some of tho To- mato members of tho parish. Tho Trustees took no action In tho difficulties until July 23, when, at a meeting at which 10 of the 13 wcro present, a letter was sent to the Pas- tor asking him to hand In his resignation. Ho claimed on receiving It that tho action of the Trustees was Illegal, as ho was President of tbo Board, and had not been summoned to the meet- Ing1. To a TIMES reporter, he said, No reasons were given for asking1 mo to Icavo, and the Trus- tees acted In the many capacities of Judge. Jury, and District Attorney. I demanded to know why 1 should rcalirn. and could not ascertain." Hore tho matter rested until last nlgut, when tho regular Trustee meeting was held at tho par- sonage adjoining the church. All the Trustees were present, and reporters wero rigorously ex- cluded, the parson's daughters, assisted by a very diminutive dog. guarding tho front gate. Tho deliberations were long, the Trustees not deport- ing until nearly midnight. They were carried on In tho German fashion, one of the comoly daugh- ters making several trips to adjacent hostelrlot for libations of beer. When tho Trustees left most of them wcro deaf to even when couched In true Hanoverian Ger- man, and referred the reporter to tho Pastor for tho results of tho meeting. Mr. Vosseler was found Inhisbtudy In the rear of his dwelling, and when spoken to about the matter, said: Our meeting was quite harmoni- ous, and wo all agreed to put usldo whatever gossip had spread around. 1 asked to bo allowed to remain In my position until 1 next, whon I ugreod to resign and undertake a long pleasure trip, which I have hod In my mind for somotlrae. There Is a matter of difficulty be- tween tho Trustees and myself, but wo havo all agreed to keep this In tho family." Tbo clergyman had proceeded thus far when his daughter cautloued him to say no more. Thereupon the reverend gentleman abruptly said: "I will not say any more, and must bid you good night." From ono of the Trustees, who was more com- municative than his colleagues. It was learned that there had been a good deal of talk In tbo church about tho relations of tho Pastor with several of the female members of thu church. This was. ho said, "woman's but the membership bad fallen away to such an ox- tent, reducing tho collections so materially, that It became necessary for tho good of tho church that a chnngo should bo made. The Trustees accordingly had recommended tho res- ignation. Under tbp arrangement hatched up everything would probably work well, and nil difficulties disappear.

GEORGIA'S INFANT MURDERER. A FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD BOY HELD FOB SOOOTINQ HIS SISTER'S CHILD. GAINESVILLE, Ga., Aug. prelimin- ary hearing of Dock" Peeler and hla mother, Fannie Peoler, for tbe murder of Marshal Fain, an Infant child of Newton Fain, who was killed on Saturday last by a shot wound from a gun In tho hands of "Dock" Peeler, was had before Judgo G. H. Prior to-day, and the defendants were committed. Peeler was re- quired to give a bond of for voluntary man- slaughter, and his mother ono of for volun- tary manslaughter as principal in second de- gree. Both are to answer at tho August term of a'l Superior Court. Tho defendants wcro arrested on 8nturday, and at their request the committing trial waa postponed until to- day, and they passed 88 hours In Hall County Jail. They wsro both released on bond and de- parted for their homo, which is about three nillcB north of Gainesville. Tho cause which led to tho killing of the child was a family broil, and was aulto unfortunate for all concerned. Tho Peeler family is Industrious, while Fain IB a dissolute fellow. Three years ago ho married Into tho family of Allen Peeler, and elace tbat time has been a pensioner at tbo Peeler homestead, making their smokehouse his. Ho didn't pretend to work, but made frequent visits to Gainesville and spent his time In idleness, but always re- ported at homo for rations at meal time. Thl3 vagrant way of living didn't suit tho Peeler thrift, nnd at sundry times Mrs. Peeler would lecture her son-in-law about his profligate ways, which lectures were not appreciated by him. "Dock" Peeler, who was charged with tho crime of murder. Is about 14 years old, and qulto small for his ago. His latbor gave him leave to go hunting lost Saturday morning, and on the eve of leaving, his sister. (Fein's left for her homo, and Dock decided to go with her. taking hla gun. Ho accompanied her homo, and some time after this bis mother went up to Faln's, not thinking that Dock was there, but supposing that ho was In tbe woods hunting. On arriving at Faln's house she found hcrson- In-law preparing to tako his dally jaunt to Gainesville. Ilcrschcll, a brother of Fain, said that he was going with Mrs. Peeler protested against him going, as she claimed big time, she having hired him to nurse Faln's children. Newton camo to his brother's rescue and a wordy war ensued between tho mother-in-law and tae son-in-law, in which Dock" took sides with bis mother. Fain then threatened to nog "Dock." .and this trot tho blood of tbo youth excited. His motherstartcd him homo to keep down a row, but abou t this time tbo gun was flred and tho load, instead of hitting Fain, was lodged In tho brain of tbo IB-month-old child of Fain, which at tho tlmo was In tbo arms of Mrs. Peeler. Death was Instantaneous. "Dock" is tho smallest boy in Georgia ever charred with so heinous a crime. Fain won quite a reputation during tho walking-match Jn llllg gtute as being champion STRIKE OF THE MINERS PRACTICALLY AT AN END.

Eight or ten shots wero then flred, and when tho fight was over Haymaker waa lying prostrate on the ground. Dr. Hugh, who bold a post-mortem examination upon Haymaker's body, said death resulted from wounds made by a sharp instrument. Ho found 11 different wounds, and either one of three of tbo wounds was sufficient to produce death. Dr. Dervlco corroborated this testimony, and wild tbe wounds mentioned by Dr. Hugh were dangerous and could have been made by a bayonet. Thomas Welch told substantially tho eame story aa Ray. He did not see who shot Hay- maker, but SAW Bowser making thrusts at Hay- maker with a gua to which a bayonet was at- tached. At the night session the shotguns, and bayonets used in tho riot were brought Into tho court room. Deputy Sheriff Bvors. who ar- rested Bowser in a shanty near Murruvsvlllo. nnd who found guns there, testified that Bow- ser remarked that ho bad beard that Haymaker had been killed by a bullet; If so ho bad not killed him, but If be had been killed by a bay- onet then bo had killed him.
