Men of the Shakespeare 'Taken from the Waterlogged YefigeL All Had Been Abandoned Steamer and Saved the Cnfortunate XEW YORK, Jan. steamship tagi which arrived Friday from Bre- ien, brought all the crew of the rrec'ked ship Shakespeare with the ex- eption of the captain, who died before lie rescue and was buried at sea. The bakespeare sailed from Hamburg for bis port about three months ago and us not heard from until December 18, ,-hen she was sighted by the steamship Jestorian. The Shakespeare was then a very bad shape and the crew were uddled together in the bows to escape he water which at intervals swept over he decks. The Nestorian attempted to ake off the men, but as the weather was tormy were unable to do so and the ,-recked vessel was lost sight of during he night. On December 22 the steam- hip Sardinia sighted the Shakespeare nd then no trace of any life on board ould be This report seemed o settle all doubt that the crew would be heard from again. Captain Monroe, of the Stag, on his ,rrival yesterday told the following tory "We left Bremen on December and experienced rough weather until he 21st. when the wind blew a perfect At midnight of that day we iguted rockets and flare lights ahead. Phe temperature Was then below zero. Ye steered m the direction of the dan- rer signals and about nine in the morn- the man on the lookout reported he hull of a vessel. Although there ias a tremendous sea running, we ran s close to tho vessel as we could an'd oimd her to be tho Shakespeare. All ler masts were and the crew were mddled on the deck, lashed to the parts if the bulwark that were loft standing. Vt two o'clock in the afternoon we got L line on board the wreck, but it mapped almost as soon as it was se- ;ured. I then signalled the Shakes- ware that we would stand by them un- il morning. nine the next morning my .econd officer, Mr. Noble, and four sea- nen succeeded in lowering a boat a me was secured on board the Shake- .peare and we then began the work of ransferring the unfortunate seamen. fhere were eighteen in all, Captain Muller having died from exposure. All he men were in very bad condition, nost of thorn being covered with sea wils and some with broken arms. The men when brought otf board the Stag wore made as comfortable as possi- ]le. All of them at first unable U> stand, and though now they are in a ;omparatively good condition several of .hem had a narrow escape from death. Ihe Stag herself had a very rough voy- ige, having taken thirty-one days on a voyage she usually does in sixteen." GREAT NERVE. Chairman of later-State CoBftjniMlon What Might BMB a Frightful with a Madman Intent oa M DETROIT, Mich., Jan. vening Judge Thomas M. Cooley, of Inn Arbor, chairman of the Inter-State Commerce, Commission, was sitting read- ing in his library when his negro coach- man entered, armed with a double-bar- reled shotgun. The judge was satisfied rom his appearance that he had become nsane, but betraying no alarm he asked him what was the matter. The negro replied that he had decided to-kill the whole family, as they talked too much ,nd left him no time to think. The judge betrayed no alarm, and told him he agreed with him and that he would at- tend to it, By the use of consummate tact the iudge succeeded in mollifying the mad- man until he at last laid down his gun, and'at the judge's suggestion left the room. As soon as he was out of hear- ing the judge telphoned to neighbors and in a short time a deputy sheriff jlaced the coachman under arrest. Doubtless a wholesale and most fright- ful tragedy was averted by the nerve md coolness which the distinguished jurist exhibited. Evictions Begun Pa., Jan. jvictioas began Friday. Several fami- lies were ejected at Adrian. The parties Dieted took lodging with their friends ind their household effects were taken iharge of by the miners' committee.

The miners' committee are making prepara- tions to accommodate the homeless and children. Engineer and Fireman Killed. ST. Joiiv. N. B., Jan.

England Preparing for Another Cam- paign in tiie Feared on Account of Won Carlos. LOXDON, Jan, indications that England is preparing for a fresh campaign in the Soudan, beginning simultaneously from the upper Nile and Suakim have aroused the French gov- ernment from its attitude of lethargy to a realization that it is again to be ig- nored in the interest of British capital- ists and adventurers. Though Don Carlos. Duke of Madrid and pretender to the throne of Spain, makes no sign as yet, it is probable that the moribund condition of the baby King of Spain and the fact that that kingdom is without a Ministry have im- pelled him to burnish up his rusty sword for a fresh campaign for the establish- ment of his alleged rights.

Pit" ficnit- in makinz collections throucb other said among the leading causes of the- t'nnr at KELLEVS VACANT Sorrow Manifested 'for the Boatfe Dun Weekly riew of Trade. Wo Important Change IB Gnat dustriee-LeM Confident Feeling NEW YORK, Jan. G. Dun Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: An asier money market and colder weather las helped business some, but it can not >e denied that the opening trade of the new year has thus far been a little dis- appointing. For this the widely preva- ent sickness is to some extent responsi- >le, as it interrupts operations of buyers ,nd sellers in every direction and less- ens retail trade, except in drugs. In ither branches business has been fairly active, but not up to expectations, though the prevailing belief is that the ack is only temporary, and that a large business is to be expected soon. The .arge payments by the treasury have much relieved the money market, the excess of disbursements over receipts during the past week having been no ess than In general, the foreign demand for American products must have been to some extent satisfied for the present by the unprecedented exports of the past quarter. On tho other hand, specula- ive disturbances at London and Berlin render it'probable that some realization on American investmentsmay be forced, and the action of the Reading company is likely to cause distrust. AJtter official announcements that interest would cer- tainly be paid on the first preference a committee unanimously reports that interest can not be paid. It would not be strange if dissfctisfation with American securities should be much in- creased by such an experience, as this is one of the most conspicuous of all for- eign investments. Respecting money and collections, the situation is about as last reporte'd. Slow collections in dry goods, clothing and groceries at Philadelphia, with money easier; prompt collections in boots and shoes and average in other trades at Chicago, with money firm; a good de- mand at seven per cent, and slow col- lections at Detroit; some stringency at Cleveland, with collections better than was expected considering light country trade, and some stringency at St. Paul, are the more prominent features. In general the interior markets appear fairly well supplied, notwithstanding the large amounts of money sent and South during the past four No important is soen is the great industries. (X ton continues to do well, and woolen goods have opened at last year's prices, but as yet without specially satisfactory indications. The iron trade is still in doubt whether tho increase in productions has been matched by the increase in consump- tion, and while tho prevailing opinion favors higher prices, it may be noticed that moderate lots are occasionally of- fered below current-quotations, while iu bar iron the feeling is loss confident of late; in plate iron tho movement is not very active, and no sales of rails are re- ported.______________ Ten Men Buried in the Wreck. AUGUSTA, Ga., Jan. a fire at the waste factory of the Riverside mills last night, part of the wall and roof fell upon a number of men who were throwing bales of waste stock out of the windows.

Joe Me Cord and Andrew AVilson were seriously hurt. The damage to the mill is 000; covered by insurance. A for Tammany. NEW YORK. Jan. Supreme Court yesterday decided that Genera James C.

Why the WeU-Kuowo Politician Abandoned Fight Brloe. COLUMBUS, O.. Jan. most as- tonishing phase of the Senatorial cam- paign was that in which Allen O. Myers figured during the early part of this week. He came to towp. with fire in his eye and his tongue loose, and for a time his abuse of lirice was awfuL All at once Myers was missed and has not been seen here since, lloro is the reason for his absence.' It had been his habit, when he first arrived at tho Neil House, to go about the lobbies with a revolver wrapped in a pocket handkerchief, with which he would go through the motions of dusting the coat of any one whom he would take a notion to intimidate. Finally he ran afoul of General L. M. Meilley, the Adjutant General during Governor Bishop's administration. Meil- ley is a brother-in-law of Brice. He lis- tened patiently for some time to the abuse of Brice by Myers, but finally he made a break for Allen and took his re- volver from him. Handing it to the clerk of the Neil House he proceeded to give Myers the worst tongue lashing he ever got in his life, winding up his har- angue by swearing he'd kill Myers on tho least provocation and warning him to get out of town. Allen left the same night and has not been heard of since. His reception here by Democrats was very cold, the Hamilton County mem- bers refusing to talk to him or even lis- ten to him.

CLKVELASD, Jan. was learned late Friday afternoon that the big cock- ing mam atChillicothehad been won by Cleveland birds. Twenty-eight roosters were taken from this city and a big crowd of sports went down to Chillicothe to see tho contest, taking with them over to bet on the affair. The battle began at two o'clock Thursday afternoon and continued nearly all night. Of the nineteen fights compris- ing the main, thirteen were won by Cleveland birds and the sports from this aity got rich at the expense of the Cir- cleville, Columbus. Chillicothe and Cin- cinnati men who were in attendance. Six of the crowd who went from here got back Friday afternoon.

A Boss County official is said'to have sold tickets for the main, while a Chillicothe oilicial took the pasteboards at the door. The battles were for S50, with on the main. NOT AT ALL PROBABLE. Rumors That Mr. Brice May Tet be De- feated for Senator. COLUMBUS, O., Jan. Colum- bus Dispatch said, Friday afternoon: "Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Brica received the unanimous vote of the caucus, he maybe defeated for Senator, owing to the fact that the Democrats have only five of a majority on joint bal- lot, one of which is Mr. Knapp, of De- fiance, who is now dead, and Lawler, ol Franklin, who is not expected to live, and three of which of Licking; Kounts, or Shelby, and Smith, of not attend the caucus.
