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. Fire, which was discovered at o'clock, destroyed the four-story wooden block on the corner of Montello and Center streets, occupied by Gardner Bros., fruit dealers, and also by J. A. Nelson, box manufacturers; Bruce (fc Co., druggists, and Brown Morrow, plumbers. The neighboring factories of Packard Co. and Stacy, Adams Co. and a large dwelling house caught fire, but the flames were speedily extinguished. Stacy, Adams A, Co. lose about by water and damage to machinery and stock; Gardner Bros, on building; J. A. Nelson, 000 to J. E. Bruce, druggist, The total loss is estimated at HJB LIBELED AN EAKL. Conviction of an English Kditor for Pub- lishing Stories About Earl Eastern's Con- versation with the East End Sentence. 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. Williams thus grasped a wire while leaning across a steam radiator. The current from tho wire passed through his body to the ra- diatorand killed him. The current was an alternating one of about volts. Fatnl Collapse of a Witter Tank. JEFFERSOXVILLK, Ind..

The cause is supposed to have been the swelling of the dry timbers. Meat Marketed. ST. PAUL. Minn..
