CENTRAUA, Penn., Got two farm- era named James Casaon and Henry Boyer were driving, about 1 o'clock this morning, from Roaring Creek to Orangeville, this county, they were fired upon by a party concealed In the bushes bordering on the road. Casaon was shot through the left fell from the seat Into the back of the wagon. The second shot struck Dover IQ the bead and face, and aa he dropped tho reins the horses broke into a gallop and dashed down tbo road at a breasneck pace. At a sharp turn In the road both Casson and Boycr were thrown out of the wagon and over a steep embankment whore they lay senseless until daylight. The team was captured by a farmer named James Hartman, who held them at bis house until daybreak, when be drove back over the road, endeavoring to flnd the owners. He came upon the apparently lifeless bodies of Casson and Boyer, and placing them In the wagon drove home and notltlcd the neighbors. Casson died shortly after reaching Hurtman'a house. A heavy charge of buckshot had lodged In bis left aide, and this, with the loss of blood, bad proved fatal. Casson was 50 years old. He leaves a widow and four children. Boyer'a right leg was broken by the fall and his head was literally riddled with No. 6 shot. He lingered until 3 o'clock this af ternoon, when he died. He was 34 years old and leavea a widow and two children. For a time the shooting was attributed to some careless gunners, but suspicion was direct- ed against Lev! Hollner, a young married man. He has on several occasions threatened to kill Boyer. and a few months ago attempted to shoot him. HeUner was arrested and placed un- der guard. He protested bis Innocence, and as- serted that he had been at home with his wife all night. Mrs. Hellner denied this, and says that her dusband left home last night, saving ho wan going out for a night's shooting. He continued asserting his innocence up to 6 o'olock this afternoon, when he confessed, and cave as his reason for the deed that Boycr had been guilty of undue Intimacy with bis wife, and that Boyer had come to his house on the preceding day and taunted him about bis wife's Infidelity. He has, he wys, been Injured In n thousand different ways by Boyer. and he deliberately resolved to kill him. He was sorry he had killed Casson, who was a very estimable man. Beyer's Intimacy with Mrs. Hellner Is admitted by that woman. Excitement ran high, and were It not that Beyer's criminal conduct condoned In a measure Hollner's crime, the latter would have been lynched. He was taken to jail under a strong guard. A DISASTER COSTING NINE LIVES, A WATER WORKS CRIB SWEPT AWAY NEAR 11 MEN DROWNED. CHICAGO. OcL terrible accident oc- curred nt the temporary crib of the new Hyde Park Water Works at 7 o'clock this morning, resulting In the loss of nine lives. For some time past a gang of It men have been working at the mouth of tbo lake end of the tunnel, about a mllo off Cheltenham Beach. Here Is erected a platform, 40 feet square, supported by poles, wound with heavy Iron chains, and upon this platform a little hut was built. In which, the men slept and took their meals. The sea became so beavy about 5 o'clock this morning that portions of the platform were washed away, and when the men arose at they found the washing the sides of their but. They were not much alarmed, and pro- ceeded to get their breakfast and make prepara- tions for their day's work. Tbo sea in the meantime ran higher, and about 7 o'clock a huge wave struck tho hut, tearing- It from Its foundations and carrying It out Into tho raging Then followed a acene of the moat harrowing description. Fourteen men were struggling in the debris of the building, and in a few minutes not a vestlsre of the wreck was visible. Twelve of the men succeeded in climbing up to the huge Btrlogers that held the poles together, nnd lying- face downward, with arms around tho beams, they waited for assistance. Every moment In- creased I heir danger, and tho huge waves tore four men from their positions. Tho crew of the life saving'station put off and arrived near the scene of tbe accident about II o'clock. A rope was thrown to the survivors and made fast to one of the piles. Then the men. with bleed 1 Ing hands, begun, their perilous Journey to the life boat. Only four of tbe eight men reached It, tbe others giving up and falling Into the water. On the shore were hundreds of people watching tbe rescue anxiously, and the four exhausted survivors were well cared for. They are Peter Tbles. cook; Hans Christiansen, diver; Martin Nelson and Robert Christiansen, laborers. Jacob Clausen clung to a timber as bo left the wreck and was washed ashore near South Chicago. All tell a terrible tale of suffer- ing. Those lost were Will Hean, Superintendent; K. Corbjn, boss; Lewis Ainswortb, assistant boss; Charles Falk, mason; Andrew Alnsworth, Charles Mauskl. D. Smith, Otto Monlofskl, Will- lam Monlofskl, laborers.

Ohio, Oct. noon to- day the citizens residing on Independence-street, in proximity to the Immense Icehouse of the For- est City Ice Company, were startled by a terrible crash. An investigation showed that the wind had blown the structure down, burying three and a team of horses. Aa soon as tho fact became known hundreds of persons flocked to tho scene and worked earnestly to remove tho huge timbers and and get the men out. Tho cries of the men directed the searching Udrty. and, after considerable difficulty, they were readied. The timbers had fallen about two of the men In such a manner as to form a vault, and they fortunately escaped with but slight bruises.

DR. WALTER H. ZING PROBABLY FATALLY INJURED BT BOMB PERSON WHOSE MO- TIVE WAS NOT ROBBERY. NEW-HAVEN, Conn., Oct. Dr. Walter H. Zlno was assaulted last night at bis own borne In Branf ord, where he now lies at tbe point of Dr. Zlno, who Is a trial homo about 11 o'clock, and, as is bis custom, went to tbe dining room. Afterward be picked a paper and while reading- fell asleep, bis bead dropping upon tbe table. While in this po- sition his assailant crept Into the kitchen through a screen door, which was unlocked, and while the doctor was sleeping dealt him a terri- ble blow on tbe back of the head, crushing in the skull and making other injuries which will prove fatal. The doctor Bcionsness long enough blow, which knocked the floor. How long docs not know, but upon recovering heorawled out of tbo door and along the side of tbe house to the front door, rlnoring the bell. His coachman, Dave Baudet, let him In, and he was startled to see his employer covered with blood. As the doctor staggered Into the he said some one bad tried to kill and rob him. The neighbors were aroused and Medical Examiner Gay lord summoned. Ho found two lacerated scalp wounds at each sido of the head, whloh were over two inches long. Tbe skull was badly fractured. Dr. Oaylord :removed several small pieces of bone, as did Dr. Francis Bacon, of this ne arrived later. Coroner Boll man, of this city, was called by telephone at midnight, and arrived at tbe scene of the attempted murder at 3 o'olock tnls morn- lag. Dr. Zinc had about on his person, part of which was found outside the. door with bis gold watch, where they had probably been car- ried by hla assailant and dropped throuah fear of discovery, and another roll of bills was found on the dining room floor. This showed that the assault was not committed for the purpose of robbery. Footprints loading to and from tho house In tbe direction of a gateway near the barn, which opened Into an adjoining Jot, were discovered. They were made by a barefooted penon. Conclusions were formed as to the railty person, and the Coroner nnd Sheriff drovo to tbe residence of Kobcrt Dougherty.an Irlanman who lives on Montowese- strcet, about a mllo from the doctor's house. This man was fined on Saturday by Justice Zlno for drunkenness and an assault on him while try Ing to separate Dougherty and Robert Pollock, who were nvhting. Dougherty went to the res- idence of the J ustice and paid the flnes and costs of the cases and since tnen has been making threats against him. This led to his arrest this morning. Dougherty was found In bed. but was brought out, and impressions made in tbe road by nis bare feet were measured and found to tally with the prints in the doctor's yard. Saturday night Dougherty while in a saloon made threats against Dr. Zinc. To-day Dougherty denies making any threats. He says bo left G. H. Llns- ley's saloon at o'clock and went directly home. His wife, before learning of her bus- band's statement, said it was o'clock when he came in. Tbe saloon keeper says he olosod up about 10 o'olock. Other persons so far under suspicion arc Peter CofTeo and John Llnsky, both of whom have received severe penalties from Zlno when brought before him for trial. This forenoon Coroner Bolimau and Sheriff Nettleton went to Stony Creek In search of COffee. hut he was not arrested. Last night tho Justice fined Llnsky for some offense, when Dr. Zinc left the court room the spectators loudly hissed him. For some time among tho disorderly class a feeling of bitterness against Or. Zinc has been growing. and his fi lends feared that some harm might befall him, but no one ever believed that such a cold-blooaed attempt at murder would he made. Dougherty is held under surveillance. Walter H. Zinc, the victim of tbo assault, is a physician well known here and in neighboring towns, and bad had an extensive practice. He has a large circle of friends and a good many enemies. Ho bas been elected to quite a num- ber of town offices, and at tbo present time is a trial Justice and the acting school visitor of tho town. He has been in the town but. six or eevcn years, having come from Nowtown. Long Island. He was graduated from a German med- ical college. He has a wife and two children.

THE SITUATION VIEWED FEOM OPPOSITE STANDPOINTS. COHNTNQ, Got has tha repu- tation of harboring- more statesmen tothesquare rod than any town in the Commonwealth. What the Hon. Charles Walker, Capt. Cole, Gen. Lathrop, E. P. Graves, Charles D. Baker, F. B. Brown, ex-Senator Bradley, F. N. Decker, and their associates don't know about the politics not merely of Steuben County but of the out- side world is baraly worth Inquiring Into. If they should, perchauce, miss any item of infor- mation it is sure to be in possession of Capt Jones, of Addison, or John MoDougal and F. G. Babcook. of Hornellsvule, or some of the leaner statesmen who stand guard in the surrounding towns of Stenbeo County. Like other statesmen, however, they differ widely in tbe conclusions which they draw from the same state of facts, and they also differ as to what are facts and what merely fic- tions. Mr. Walker, who is a Pres- byterian and believes In forcordlnatlon, as well as a Cleveland man and a stickler for honest government, will tell you that Grover Cleveland Is destined, and predestined, to be tbe next President of the United States; he knows It. he feels it In his boned; he predicted his nomination a year ago. when over} body else laughed at It, and, with equal confidence, be now predicts bis election. It Is of no consequence to him whether Steuben County gives a large or a small majority, one way or the other. Gov. Cleveland is a man of destiny, and be Is go- ing to fulfill his destiny in tho Presidential chair. Having thns planted himself on the sure founda- tion of religious faith and positive conviction. Mr. Walker, who li not only a Presbyterian but a shrewd politician, will. It requested to do so, descend to particulars, and give very sensible reasons for the faith that is in him. So far as Steuben County and his own immediate vicinity is concerned, he says ho will be satisfied to make such a reduction in Garfleld's majority of 1880 as will, if followed uplnthe other interior counties of the State, as be is confident it will be. entire- ly wipe out that majority and leave Gov. Cleve- land a good plurality. GarfleH'a majority over Hancock in this county was 1.253. Mr. Walker does not intend to allow Biaino's plurality to exceed 800 or He has no apprehensions about the Irish defection on which tho Blalne men are depending so largely. It will bo con- fined mostly to the Greenfaackers, who will vole for Butler, and who bavo for several years nast polled a large voto in tola county, amounting. In 1880, to nearly 000 for Weaver. The Irish vote that is claimed for Blalne he thinks will be found wanting on election day. These are bard times with the boys, he says, and they arc willing to give the Blalne men a little taffy In return for their liberal promises, but when election day comes they will take their money. If they have any to give, and go and vote for Grovcr Cleve- land. If Blalne gets one Irish Democratic vote for five Republican votes that will be drawn away from him by the Prohibitionists he will do remarkably well. This dependence on the Irish voto for Blalne Mr. Walker thinks Is the grand mistake that the Republicans are making in their canvass, not only of Steubcn County, but of tbo entire State. They aro counting every Democratic vote not cost for Cleveland as a (rain either Direct or indirect for their candi- date in their estimate of the Republican majori- ties by counties as compared with the majorities of 1880. Now. the truth is that there was a large Greenback vote, especially In the aouthern tier of counties, that was cast for Weaver In 1880. It was mostly Democratic, and as Hancock did not get It then. It will not ho a loss to tbe Democrats if Cleveland does not get it now. It is not likely to be much larger for Burler In 1884 than it was for Weaver lu I860. In addition to this general view of the situation Mr. Walker thinks he sees a turn in the tldo of public senti- ment In this State in favor of Cleveland: us Is gaining votes every day. not merely from Demo- crats who were at first disaffected, but from sober-minded, reflecting Republicans. Nothing short of a heavy Republican majority In Ohio on tbo 14tb lost, can, in his opinion, prevent tbls swelling tide from moving on to a glorious vic- tory lu November. Capt. Cole does not agree with Congressman Walker at all. He Is not a believer in forcordi- natioD or manifest destiny. What little relig- ious faith he had. be appears to have .lost while be was Cnptain of tho Port in New-York. If Cleveland carries this State, hu says, he bos got to do It by a majority, or plurality, of votes, and these he cannot get. In Stenbeu County he Bays he will be beaten by 1.600, and in the State by more or less. He concedes that the Prohibitionists will draw off some votea from Blalne. They havo considerable strength in this county. Tiartlcularly in HornellsvlTle, Canlateo, Irwln. and Fremont. They claim to have os more In the county, and may poll hut they will be completely swamped by the Irish Democratic vote that will be cast for Blalne. Tbe independent Republican vote, he says, don't amount to anything; be only knows one specimen In tho whole Oicott. Tho Democrats claim about 20 more, but they can't put their finger on them. The Irish voto numbers in the county, and Blalne will get 60 per cent, of it. Tbe Butler vote will be larger than Weaver's In 1880, and tbo Increase will come from tbe Democrats. If Ohio should go or over for tbe Republican ticket the lilalna cyclone would sweep every- thing before it, and Cape. Cole thinks the Cleve- land men In this State would shut up shop. Mr. E. P. Graves, Chairman of the Republican County Committee, entertains views of ihesltua- tlon not unlike those of Capt. Cole, and all the otber Republican politicians In Steubeu are alike enthusiastic. There is no controversy about the Congress- man from this district, which now comprises Steubcn. Ontario, and Yates. It Is conceded on all sides that ex-Controller Ira Davenport, of Bath, will he elected, and tbo Democrats have not yet made any nomination against him. No one Is seeking tbe empty honor of a boneless candidacy. Neither party has made Its nomina- tions for the Assembly. Last year Steuben County sent two and the Republicans say they shall have one member this >ear and perhaps both. The Democrats will probably rcnominate last year's candidates, and the Republicans will oppose them by K D. Higgrms In tbe First District and A. B. Craig In the second. To sum it all up, tbe Republicans of Steuben County will gain a Congressman, owing to their having been transferred into a now district, and they stand a good chance of gaining an Assem- blyman. But on the Presidential vote they will be lucky If they bold their own. They all hnve a wholesome dread of "Charlie" Walker with his predestination theories, and they hope and pray that he will not "get his back up." He IB talking of going to California between now and election, and they will gladly "pair off" witb him, ten to one. and pay his expenses If he will only go and stay there till after tbe 4tn of No- vember.

Why did you shoot the asked the magistrate. "We had intended to kill each other." replied Trenko, In a sullen tone. Why did you get was asked. Because I got drunk."

TO REMAIN QUIETLY WITH HIS FRIENDS FOR THE OF HIS PLANS FETED DEFINITELY AS YET. It was 8 o'clock last night, and the loungers at the Bt. James Hotel were rather more numerous than usual. A little group of gentlemen stood at tho desk attentively study- Ing a railroad time table and referring to the gorgeous hotel clerk for Information, which that worthy geemecl to be either unwilling or unable to give. Another group stood on the steps of the hotel and looked up and down tho street But It rained slightly and the occupation was not entertaining. Suddenly the attention of all was called to the figure of a gentleman who walked helplessly up the lobby of the hotel until he reached tbe desk at the other end. His gait was uncertain and tottering, and his appearance betokened excessive feebleness. His face was pale and unshaven, his features haggard and sunken. Beep olaok lines encircled hla eyes, one of which was slightly discolored. He wore a light check suit fitting closely to hla figure, which was neat and well formed. John murmured the loungers In the hotel, eagerly following the gentleman with their eyes. John McCulIougb if but hardly recognizable as the oriirinal of tbe picture which hung In tbe barroom. His sudden' ap- pearance ac the St. James Hotel was speedily explained. He bad arrived in New-York at 7 o'clock last evening from St. Louis by the lim- ited express, and bad at once proceeded to the residence of some friends on Fifth-avenue in order to escape tbe visits wblob would otherwise have annoyed him. But John McCullough was anxious for bis mall and had wandered down to tbo hotel where he had lived so long, followed by hla Indefatigable friend, Capt. W. M. Conner. Tbe hotel clerk presented him with his mall, saluting blm courteously, and tbe tragedian Went .up stairs to the room of a friend, an- nouncing his Intention of having a shavo. Capt. Cocner, however, sent up a boy after him, and Mr. McCulloogh soon slowly descended the stairs and consigned himself to a chair in the barber's shop. "John will not stay at theBt, James for some days yet" explained Caot. Conner to a group of friends. "I thought it better to remove him from bis old quarters, where he would bo sub- jected to much unintentional pain. He will re- main for the present with aomo friends in one of theflncst mansions on the avenue, and hla address will not be made known." Has bis condition been exaggerated said Capt Conner, "I received a dispatch from the proprietor of the hotel in St. Louis at whloh he waa staying. Tbe telegram ran: John is in a bad way. Brooks Is doing all ho can, but the sunshine of your presence would be advantageous." I wont at once. John Is cer- tainly in a broken-down condition and needs a great deal of rest. Playing those beavy tragic parts in tho best weather would break up a stronger man than McCullough. But the reports have all been exaggerated. He certainly forgot his part and waa obi I (rod to bo prompted, but I could quote Instances of eminent actors who havo beeo similarly unfortunate." "Then he is capable of resuming his engage- "I am doing my best to persuade him against any such course He is a very determined fellow, and swears he will not allow his contracts to bo canceled. Manager Norton, of St. Louli, has promised to hold his dates open for him until Nov. 12. But John McCullough Is by no means fit to act. and I say it." "Is Mr. McCullough was tbe answer. He is just as rational as ho evor has His Journey from Bt. Louis was accomplished without tbo least difficulty, and bo slept most of tbe way. He does net realize his condition. Ot course he knows that be is not in a normal elate, but he does not consider that there is anything to oc- casion all this Interest on bis account. lie is not fond of conversing on the subject, as you may well Imagine, and bas commissioned me to do that for Elm." Will he ronmlu in Notbing is settled yot. You BCD there are no watering places near here where he could possibly go. But in his present quarters ho will receive more attention and care than he could obtain anywhere else, and I hopo that with rest ho will soon be himself. He will probably go to visit some friends In Philadelphia shortly." Mr. McCulloufrh left the St. Jamea'Hotel in a back shortly after this Jar bis Irleod'a taouaa
