SMITH, Ark., Jan. Indians hanged at noon Thursday in the United States jail yard for murders com- mitted in the Indian Territory. They bore tte ordeal t. ith much nerve, stand- ing- on the scaffold fully twenty minutes while preparations were being made. The work, however, went on with pre- cision and dispatch, and when the fatal drop came there was but a slight groan from one of them, a gentle swing of six black bodies, not a twitch or a shrug. All dead in from three to six min- utes and George Maledon, whohadhung seventv-flve persons before, performed the work. Sam Goings and James Burris wtfre hanged for the murder of Houston- Joyce, a young white man, in Novem her, 18SS, near Kiminislie, in the Ghoa- taw Natiou. Joyce stopped at Burris' house for dinner and after leaving the house was intercepted by Burris and Goings, who told him they intended to kill him. He begged piteously for life, but without avail. Both fired a bullet into Joyce's back and he fell dead. Goings and Burris were arrested four months later and not only confessed the crime but told of killing a white man several years ago. Both were under twenty years of age. John Belly and Thomas Willes were convicted of the murder of a white man, supposed to be W. B. 'Williams, a whisky peddler. The killing occurred near Tal- lihani, in February, 1889. Williams went into the neighborhood with a lot of whisky. The Indians bought some of it and got drunk. A difficulty ensued and Williams, becoming alarmed, started to run. but was riddled with bullets. Belly and Willes were arrested and upon the testimony of an Indian who saw the killing were convicted. Jefferson Jones, a Choctaw Indian, was convicted of the murder of George TV. Wilson, an old white man who was living near Tallihani, Creek March, 1889. Austin James, a Chickasaw Indian, was convicted of murdering a young man from Alabama, named Thomas El- liott, near Fisnmingo, Chickasaw Na- tion, in 1SS3.

Va., Jan. a rather heated discussion in the Senate Thursday morning that body went into joint assembly with the House of Dele- gates to consider the Gubernatorial con- test. This was generally opposed by the Republicans, who wanted to wait until their absent members could attend. The majority report of the Gubernatorial committee was presented. The minority report of the contest committee was read in the afternoon. It shows a plurahay of 140 for General Goff, and recommends that he be de- clared duly elected Governor of this State. It claims that the committee's labors have demonstrated that there was no organized effort to corrupt the ballot by either party, and congratulates the people of the State on the purity of the election. The joint assembly has ad- journed until Monday, when rules gov- erning its deliberation will be adopted and it will begin its sessions as a ju- dicial body. Hilton Victorious. NEW YOUK.

Ward, opened the proceedings in the Supreme Court yesterday in the action brought by the National League to restrain from with the Players' League. Ho read extracts from Ward's affidavit in answer to the published allegations ol President Day, and went over the his- tory of the League contracts and agree- ments with players and dwelt particu- larly upon the reserve clause, which he claimed was unjust in its operation. Mr. Joseph H. Choate, counsel for the League, said that the question was whether base ball players are bound by their contracts as the rest ol mankind were. Mr. Choate, with the preface "Oh, that mine enemy would write a took AVard's book on base ball and read passages to show his former in- of "reserve" to be contrary to that advanced by him in this suit. Mr. Choate read a letter written by Ward in October, 1S88, while abroad, admitting being bound by his agreement and stat- ing he thought he could be released for personal reasons. Ward, Mr. Choate had himself drawn up the agree- ment for the players. Mr. Choate concluded by stating the contract had been made in good faith and should be enforced. Mr. Howland said the ten-day clause was not in the interest of the players, and that it gave the management abso- lute power to dismiss a man without cause. The court took the papers, re- serving its decision. VICTIMS' BELIEF. :i trial. Th' wa1; an c-rror in in Superior Couft. i: ly law thf-ri-on. i N.

TOLEDO, O., Jan. develop- ments in the forgery case now tend to show that Lamb, the expressman who negotiated the notes supposed to bo forged, was made the dupe of Madame De Vere, a clairvoyant who has figured here, at Cleveland and at Painesville under different aliases. She admits that she has passed under tho name of Flor- ida G-. Blythc. who is named as payee in one of the notes. She told a lawyer here who was calledkin to transact some legal business for her several months ago. that it is her roai name. A queer that there ap- pears to be anothet G-.

Bill to Prohibit JUiicIlug in France Re- ceived Support From Churchmen Notorious Fl LONDON, Jan. bill proposed a year since by the Bishop of Angers, imposing severe penalties upon duelists, their seconds and would-be duelists, will be taken up soon, and the discussion on the subject can hardly ;fail to do some good. It appears perfectly apropos for a churchman to bring forward Such ft measure, but the reverend probably never expected to be sustained in his laudable reform by two coadjutors differing so widely in other matters from him and from each other as M. Cluseret, ex-Commumist, and M. de Cas- Sagnac, who has been "out" as often as any man in France, and has made hia mark in more ways than one with both sword and pistol. There is no doubt that many more Frenchmen who desire to pass for fire-eaters would be secretly happy to see dueling really suppressed, thus giving them an excuse to do what they are often afraid to a challenge. DESTRUCTIVE BLAZE. Mass., Itlockn at Itrockton, SGO.OOO. BKOCKTOX, Mass.. Jan. narrowly escaped a serious conflagration Thursday morning.

LONDON, Jan. libel suit of the Earl of Euston agains t Mr. Parke, editor of the North London Press, ended yesterday in the conviction of Mr. Parke. Justice Hawkins, before whom the case tried, in his charge to the jury re- Tiewed the evidence carefully. He de- clared that there were great discrepan- cies manifest in the identification of tho plaintiff. Referring to the testimony of the witness John Saul, the Justice said if his story was true, he mat veiled why he had not been arrested and prosecuted and also why a warrant bad not been asked against of Euston. The jury then retired and subsequently re- turned a verdict of guilty. Parke was sentenced to one year's imprisonment. Flared ATith Electricity and Vied. H.VRTFOUD, Conn., Jan. 17. Oscar Williams, employed at the Cushman Chuck Works, was killed Wednesday by an electric shock. The men in the fac- tory have been in the habit of amusinsf themselves by touching electric light wires that run past the windows and re- ceiving slight shocks.

The current was an alternating one of about volts. Fatnl Collapse of a Witter Tank. JEFFERSOXVILLK, Ind..
