NEW OHLEANS, Jan. 5.-At noon Thursday Noah Stropp, a thirteen-year-old white boy. was killed at his father's home, on Lepage street. The manner of his death is most un- usual. All the rear portion of his skull was blown av.-ay by a charge of water fired from an old army musket, a relic of the war. The boy and his sister, younger than him- self, were playtng together in the kitchen. Securing an old musket which had not been fired for twenty-seven years, he unscrewed the barrel from the stock, filled the barrel with wator, and placed the muzzle end in ths fire of the stovo. Calling his little sister to, come and hear the water in the barrel boil, he leaned over and placed his ear to the >reech of the weapon. As he did so the explosion occurred and the boy was instantly killed, being thrown several feet away and having his head nearlj carried off. The barrel of the musket con taiued a charge which had been placed m 11 during the war. The boy was not aware ol this and was merely in search of fun.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 state depart ment has made public some correspondence received from Vice Consul Blacklock, al Apia, Snmoan island, relating to the trouble; between natives there. The correspondence is a brief record of events that came undei Mr. Blacklock's observation between Novem ber 7 and December 3, in which he mentions skirmishes and lighting between tlw 31 itaat'a and Tamasese people in the interior almost every day during the latter part Novem- ber. The groat fight of the month occurred on November 30, but it was a drawn battle, each side losing thirty or forty man. On December 1 and 8, the latest dates cov ered by the correspondence, the battle was renewed, but with what result is not stated. On November 10 Consul Blacklock proposed to the German and British consul that the representatives oE Germany, Great Britain and the United States ordered the riva chiefs and their forces to return to theii homes, and to suspend native governmenl until they could hear what the three govern- ments had decided on. The British consu' agreed with Mr. Blacklock, that the only way to restore peace in the country was tc divest TamaaeSB and Brandois, the rival chiefs of their power, but the German con sill refused to entertain such a proposition, and said he must continue to recognize Tamasebe as king. s Notes.

At 3 o'clock in th afternoon he left with his son Charles fo his home in Cincinnati. The paper reads as follows: "I, Grover Cleveland, president of th United States of America, to all to whom these presents shall come, greeting: Whereas at the February term, 1888, of the Unite States district courb for the southern distric of Ohio, Benjamin E. Hopkins was convicted of embezzling and misappropriating the funds of a National bank, and was sentenced to seven years and ten months' imprison ment in the Ohio penitentiary at Columbus and, whereas, the condition of this convict is such, as appears from examinations recently made, that the question is presented as tc whether he shall die in prison or at home and as to whether he shall spend his few re maining days among friends, and regardless of any other consideration connected with the case, and on the above mentioned grounds alone, I Grover Cleveland, president of the United States of America, in consideratioii of the premises aud divers other good and sufficient reasons, me thereunto moving, dc hereby grant said Benjamin E.

Hopkins was received April 18, Three operations have been performed 011 him, re suiting in a total UBS of pounds of fluid Since the last, performed on Tuesday, he has gained two inches in the waist. Hopkins chatted pleasantly with a re porter, and said: "I feel exhilarated at thf thought of reaching home so soon. I am glad now that I was committed to the peni- tentiary. Had I remained in the Hamiltoi county jail I would have been under the sot to-day. Warden Coffin, by kind attention, has prolonged my life. The day has come when I must be at peace with all man kind. I am too near the -brink of the to cherish any animosity. At best I cannot live three months." Hopkins'memory is affected. He does no' know the day of the week or when he was committed. Ho thinks that he was tappec last time a week ago, when really it was oiilj on Tuesday last. Assistant Physician T. C. Morton says his life has been shortened from worry over the non-arrival of his pardon, which resulted ir non-assimilation of food. Hopkins dined on oyster soup, after whicl he took a short nap. His son Charles at- tended to all of the necessary arrangements for the journey home. The trip from the prison to the depot was made in Warder Coffin's private carriage. Hopkins at Home. CINCINNATI, Jan. Benjamin Hop kins yesterday evening at 7 o'clock crossec his family threshold probably for the last time until he is carried out a corpse. The train resached the Central depot in this citj at 5-.55, being on time. It had been whis pered about the depot that Hopkins would arrive, and several hundred commuters laid over to get a glimpse of the noted ex-pris- oner, but all were disappointed save a few railroad hands and depot employes. The Cincinnati hospital had been telegraphed to send an ambulance to the depot to receive Hopkins, and when the train arrived, a cov ered wagon, poorly adapted by the way, foi conveying an invalid like Hopkins over the rough'stretts, was in waiting at the express entrance near John street. The crowd'at the depot was not informed of this fact, and were disappointed at not seeing Hopkins at When the train arrived Charley Hopkins alighted, and, hastily inspecting the ambu ence, returned to the chair car, and, as sisted by a Iriend, bore his father from the coach to the ambulance, a few steps. Hop- cms walked with a painful limp, resting his arms on the shoulders of the men on eithei side of him. While proceeding toward the ambulance he raised h's face once, glancec about him and said in a pitiful voice: Where is Addie? Where is Jessie? L there no one here to meet He then dropped his head, and was lifted into the ambulance, where, instead of a com- fortable couch, there was a rough, hard bench on which Hopkins sat. With his son and e reporter bearing him up, Hopkins was driver to his home. The family were looking for the one whc had been absent for eight months; in fact, 8 royal reception greeted Hopkins, which was very pleasing to him. When the ambulance backed up against the the curb, in front of the co-rfortable three-story hoxise, there was a cheery appear- ance even on the outside. From every win- dow shone a light. The front door was open, and two young ladies, Hopkins' daughters, stood on the sidewalk, while the good wife was standing up on the steps leading to the front door. During the ride from the depot to his home Hopkins complained considerably of the jolting, and frequently would utter a sup pressed cry of pain. He was doubtless in great misery. The ainbulence moved slowly and occasionally Mr. Hopkins would looh out and inquire, "Where are But when the conveyance finally backec up in front of the residence, the invalid' face brightened, and an expression of joy manifested itself on his countenance when h beheld his two daughters standing with out- stretched arms, ready to receive him, an the mistress of the family greeting him a the entrance with a smile. Hopkins was Ufted from ambulance to side- walk and before his attendants had an opppr tnnityto proceed to the front door with their charge a pair of loving arms were ca ressing him. "How do you do, then a kiss, and "How do you do, and another ca- ressing kiss. Then Hopkins was led up te the front doo-, where he caressed his wife. Kisses followed from the other children, and the unfortunate man's heart must have been full of emotion. Slowly he was led through the hall to sitting room and once more in the f amilj circle, a free man, Ben Hopkins fell in e chair, gave way to a sigh of relief, and reclinin? his head against a support, closed his ej'es in repose. There were nc tears, no weeping. The family welcome could not have been more pleasing. Wife and daughters all wore smiles, and each with remarkable self-possession, consid- ering the occasion, conducted herself in a way that must have made the moment i happy one to Hopkins, despite his fatal mal ady. One daughter was noticed to relieve herself of a tear, but she turned aside, dried it, and reappeared smiling and looking happy After reclining in the chair a few mo- ments, Mr. Hopkins opened his eyes, and with his old-time, familiar urbanity, invited the reporter to take tea with him, insisting on it. But the invitation was thankfully declined, and Mr. Hopkins bade the man a cordial good-night After a lunch, was led up-stairs and was soon slumbering The Haytian Insurrectionist Buys a Navy CONSISTING OP ONE BOAT.

DUBLIN, Jau. worlt of evicting tenants was resumed at Falcanagh, Conntj Donegal. The evictors found the house of a man named Doogan barricaded and defendec by a score of men, armed with rifles, and en trenched behind the walls of the house Loopholes had been made in the walls, frou which the besieged could fire upon the sol- diers. The men inside the house refused tt surrender even when the priests added theii eiitreanes to the commands of the magis trate. Accordingly the riot act was read and soldiers made ready to fire upon the houso when the magistrate stopped them anc granted the defenders of the place an houi for reflection. Finally Doogan agreed tc abandon the use of rifles if the soldiers woulc not shoot, but would not surrender. Thet the and police made an attack upot the house and a desperate (struggle ensued. After ihe attacking party had been repulsec several tunes, the priests persuaded Doogsn to surrender and he and were taken into custody. During the fight an inspectoi was badly wounded. During the fighting between the evictori and defender yesterday a dosen policemer and bailiffs were injured. One of the de- fenders had his jaw fractured and anothei was badly hurt by Tjeing buried beneath ths ruins of the barricade; which the storming party How the Fighting Effects England. LONDON, Jan. violence of the re- sistance made against the evictions in County Donegal, involving fighting more desperate than any heretofore witnessed in Ireland, has created a great sensation hers and raised the question in the minds of many persons hitherto in favor of wholesale evic tions whether the government's course wil! not really be productive of more harm than good. Of course, the government's adher- ents are quite as indifferent to the sufferings, or even the slaughter of the bailiffs as they are to whatever disaster may befall the ten- ants, but the feeling of abhorrence whict has already sprung up in the breasts of the more compassionate of the English voters bids fair to work injury to Conservative prospects at future elections. Mr, T. P. O'Connor's Star expresses the opinion that the present situation in Ireland is more serious than at any time since the passage of the land act of 1881. "It is quite evident, from the recent report made by the Irish land the Star Irish matters have taken an entirtiy new phase. The old land commission has disap peared, and instead we have a body in whicb the Tory land agent reigns supreme, declar- ing in favor of a produce rent, i. e., a rent based on the price of produce, pure and sim- ple, without the slightest regard to the yield. Thus the tenants are hopelessly deceived, and will probably now strike against paying the judicial rent." ________ Famine and Drought. SHANGHAI, Jan. terrible famine and drought are prevailing in the interior. In the province of Shantung the crops have been entirely destroyed by. the overflow oi the Yellow river.

HIPPOLYTE. for active service, had been sold for The Madrid is an iron screw steamship, regis tering 861 tons burden, is about two hundred and twenty-five feet in length, draws four- teen feet of water loaded, and has engines ol 400 horse power. Her hull is of iron plating, clinker built, and her main deck and uppei works are of wood. She is a three-inasted schooner rig vessel. Efforts were made to keep the sale secret, but the fact leaked out that a prominent firm of ship brokers doing business with northern Hayti and in sympathy vrfto Hip polyte were mixed up with the transaction George P. Cunningham, of Winthrop, Cun ningham Company, 80 Wall street, New York, agents of the owners, said the sale was made through Samuel Holmes, a broker ol No. 130 Front street. "We expected to make the sale ourselves, and a firm of merchants interested in Hippolyte have been wanting to get hold of her for the past month, but had not yet decided to buy of me. When 1 heard of the sale yesterday I strongly sus pected that the boat was wanted for the Haytian rebels." One of the owners said that when Holmes announced to him that the boat had been sold and was asked to name the purchaser, he said: "Never mind, she is sold and I have a certified check for the purchase money.' The owners have. not yet discovered who purchased the boat. "If a heavy gun was fired on her deck I would not want to be on her, It would surely wreck said a gen- tleman who Was asked what sort of a man- of-war the Madrid would make. It was further said that her boilers were very poor, that the amount she had sold for was un- known, and that her former owners would probably not receive more than foi their share. At another place it was said that the price paid was and that this was part ol the deposited in" this city by Dr. Neumour Augusts agent of Hippolyte, be- fore he sailed for France. Mr. Holmes, who negotiated the sale, was not found at his office and his representatives refused to give any definite information, but vaguely hinted that the report of the sale was correct and that the vessel was intended for Hippolyte. The general opinion among shipping mer was that somebody had made a good thing out of the transaction and that Hippolyte has made a very poor bargain. The vessel will be transferred as soon as possible to hej new owners, whose names will appear on custom house transfer register. This transaction accounts for the detention of much of the arms and ammunition thai were to be sent out by the Clyde steamshij Ozema. They are undoubtedly intended foi the armament of the Madrid, which will probably take on a crew somewhere in the neighborhood of Turk's island, being taker there by a crew from this port. The published story about American resi- dents being imprisoned and maltreated at Port-au-Prince is untrue. The entire colony at Port-au-Prince consists of six persons. AN IMPORTANT SUIT Filed In the States District Court at St. Paul. CHICAGO, Jan. Herald special from St. Paul says: One of tuo most important cases that has been filed in the (Jnited States' district court for many years was recorded late last night. The United States has com- menced an action against the Northern cific Kailroad company which involves mil- lions of dollars. It is charged that ever since the road hua been built, about 1800, it has been trespassing upon government land along the line, de- nuding government timber lauds and causing irremediable loss and damage to the govern- ment and its constituents. These encroach- ments were made upon lands and timber do- mains in various parts Idaho, Washington territory, Montana and Minnesota. The suit promises to be a prominent one in the history of great government cases. Tha UNION VETERAN LEGION. great importance of the case is not merely in the amount involved as a pecuniary dam- age, but lies in the interest to the states at large in having so much of the timbered de- main divested of that for which it was chiefly valued.

Woods, a diver in the employ of the Merritt Wrecking eompany, at Stapleton, was drowned yester- day while at work in the wreck of the steamer Iberia, which was sunk off Kocka- way beach recently by the Cunarder Umbria. Woods was clad m the usual diver's dress and shortly after making the descent pulled vigorously on the signal rope that led from the steamer to the wreck. It was found im- possible to hoist him out and as soon as possi- ble one of the men on the steamer got into a diving apparatus and descended to the dis- tressed man's assistance. Woods was dead when, after considerable difficulty, he was got clear of the wreck and hoisted to the sur- face. It is supposed that the air pipes connected with the diving suit became entangled so that the current of fresh air was stopped, suffocating Woods. A reporter called last night at the headquarters of the Merritt wrecking company, at Stapleton, but the employes were very reticent and refused to explain whether the unfortunate diver or some one on the steamer was responsible for the accident. Woods was forty-eight years of age and a native of California. He was an experienced diver and had been in the employ of the Merritt Wrecking company for a year or more. new year opens with no important change in business prospects. A hopeful feeling every- where prevails, and at the samp time the nature and extent of retarding influences are more clearly recognized. Prominent among them are the unreasonable weather which prevents the usual distribution of many pro- ducts; the disposition of farmers to hold' back products, speculative reports having created a hope of much higher prices, and the widespread disturbance of trade by rail- road wars and discriminations. The unusually open winter too makos it difficult to get products to market, and is especially disturbing to the great lumber trade of the northwest. Railway agree- ments do not stop the discri'. .ination of which merchants in most of the western towns are complaining, whiles the ol stockholders were chilled by news of cutting in western passenger rates within one day after the new compact took effect. In spite of this influence reports of the condition of business are generally favorable. The growth of manufacturing at many western points is a notable feature, and especially in the gas region and at points in northern Illinois and Iowa. Merchants generally reckon up a large increase in amount of bus- iness last year, though toward the close tha movement was disappointingly slow. The tardiness of collections, due in differ- ent sections to short or late crops, to yellow fever, to mild weather, or to retarded dis- tribution or marketing, is also a matter of general complaint. At many cities the record of building showa a surprising increase, especially at the west, and in Philadelphia the buildings erected were more than in 1887. The present state of trade is generally quiet, even more than is usual for the season, but the money markets, though usually well supplied, have a better demand at Philadelphia, Cleve- land, Detroit, Milwaukee, Omaha and Sioux City. The volume of currency, practically un- changed during December, is now 000, only below the largest; ever recorded, that of November 1, a year ago it was in July, 1888, only and in July, 1880, only During the past week the treasury has taken in half a million more than it has paid out, and the Bank of England statement loads to the belief that now money may be drawn from this side. But the merchandise exports for the past month from New York have exceeded those of the previous year 1.0 per cent., against an increase of 3.5 per rent, in imports, which would indicate an excess of in exports over imports for the month. The course of the stock market thus far has disappointed those who looked for rapid advance; prices average fifty cents PIT lower than a week ago, and reports of rate- cutting have a bad influence. There was serious fear ol extensive strikes on western roads, but latest dispatches indicate that all difficulties have been adjusted. Speculative markets have not been active, excepting for lard, which has declined half a cent. Coffee is three-quarters of a cent higher, wfth sate of bags.
