Jan. decom- posed and swollen body of banker Joseph 6. Dittman, who has been miss- ing since December 11, was found float- lag la the Schuylkill yesterday under the Pennsyl ania railroad bridge which crosses the river at Filbert street. AYhen the news spread throughout the city an enormous crowd of people gathered on the banks of the stream and gazed with curiosity at the body as it floated in the water, moored to a wharf. The body was taken on board a police tug and a search of the clothing settled the question of identity The gold watch and diamond ring worn by Mr. Dittman when last seen alive were found, a small amoint of money, some papers and a card which requested in the event of acoidental death that the finder of his body notify James Pitcher, secretary of the Mutual Aid Association, 303 Broadway, New York. The card in- dicated that the deceased was insured for in that association. The body was taken to an undertaker's and when an autopsy is held the funeral services will take place. Mr. Dittman on the afternoon of De- cember 11 started out for his daily drive in Fairmount Park, and about dusk his deserted carriage was found in the park with the reins broken and ether appar- ent indications of a runaway accident. Marks of carriage wheels on the bank of-the Schuylkill led to the belief that Mr. Dittman was thrown from his car- riage into the river. For several weeks a large number of men were engaged in dragging the river, but all efforts to raise the body proved unavailing. There were no marks of violence on the body when found, and whether Mr death was due to accident or suicide will prob- ably never be known. At the time of his disappearance Mr. D'ttman was president of the Quaker City National bank and a shareholder in the Shaw Music Publishing Company. SHOT AT A BISHOP. Provisions of the One Negotiated by Mr. Blalnft With the Representative of the Gov- ernment of Great Britain. Chnrcb Services Interrupted by an At- tempt to Kill a Vcuemble Prelate. PniLATJEtpiiTA, .Lin. con- firmation services at St Joan's Episco- pal church last evening, the congrega- tion was startled by the actions of an apparently demented young man, who rose from his seat in the church and fired a shot from a revolver at Bishop Whitaker, who was in the pulpit. Im- mediately there uas g-eat confusion, but it was quickly seen that no harm had resulted from the shot. The young man, who gave his name as Da.vid Alex- ander, of ZS'o. 1330 Palish street. taken into custody. He told a rambling story of the letter he had received which induced him to make the attempt to kill the-venerable Bishop. He was locked up pending an investigation of the mat- ter. Alexander is about thirty years old and was until recently a clerk in the dry goods store of bridge Jk Clothier. He says that Bishop Whit.iker's attitude on the liquor question displeased him and he resolved to kill the Bishop. Alexander is an anlent Prohibitionist. He resigned his position several weeks ago in order that his intentions rath re- gard to Bishop AYhitaker would notbring disgrace to the house. Alexander says chat after hearing a sermon preached by .o'.shop last April, in which he asserted iaat every man ought to rote according to his con- science, he entered into a correspond- ence vi ith the divine, trying to convince the Bishop that he was an enemy to prohibition and should be "removed." He has_becn waiting for a chance to get at the Bishop for some time, and hear- ing that he was to preach in St. John's church last nisrht went there determined to kill him. The prisoner states that he had determined to also remove Rev. S. D. McConncll. pastor of St. Stephen's Kpiscopal church, whose attitude on the to him. Named la It Which Not Included Treaty of 1843. WASHINGTON, Jan. new ex- tradition treaty with Great Britain, ne- gotiated by Secretary Blaine and now pending in the Senate, is given here- with in full. The treaty itself differs radically from the one negotiated by Secretary Bayard, in that it does not Contemplate, in the remotest degree, the surrender of what are called "politi- cal and also in that it adds a large list of crimes to the ones which, under the treaty of 1842, are declared to be extraditable. There was no difficul- ty, it is believed, in negotiating the present treaty, both countries being equally desirous to obtain the surrender of their embezzlers and other criminals. The provisions of the treaty are made applicable to the following additional or altering money, uttering or bringing into circulation counterfeit or altered money. larceny, obtaining money by false pretenses; receiving money or other property, knowing the same to have been embezzled, stolen or fraudulently obtained. made criminal by the laws of both countries. or subornation of perjury. abduction, child stealing kidnaping. house breaking or shop breaking. or conspiracy to revolt on the high seas, wrongfully sinking or destroying a vessel at sea or attempting to do so; assaults on board a ship on th> high seas. and offences against th lawsof both countriesfor the suppression of slavery and slave trading.

Nellie Bly, the New York World's globe circler, stepped from the tram m the Jersey City station of the Pennsylvania railroad Saturday ifternoon.

The station in Jer- sey City was crowded with people long before the tram was due, and Mayor Cleveland and other officials were there to receive Miss Bly. When the lady ilighted she found herself in the midst an enthusiastic crowd which the po- lice had hard work to separate.

A TerlUble robbers' care has been discovered in the mountain fastness of the Flint district, in the Cherokee Nation, and the robbers themselves are now behind the bars of the United SUtee jail in this city. [krantry stores and post-offices along the border have been burglarised for a year past, and many persons have been robbed on the public highways of the Cherokee Nation. All efforts to identify or capture the robbers failed. A hunter accidentally found a cave in the mountains last Tuesday, and was surprised io find it well stored with a variety of goods and miscellaneous sup- plies, guns, saddles, fire-arms and the like. He saw at once that he had stum- bled upon a robbers' cave, and so re- ported to the authorities. The place was searched and nearly three wagon loads of stolen goods found, among them a quantity of postage stamps and decks of' cards. A party was placed at the cave on guard, and captured Gordon Sanford and Lewis Maddux, when they came to the rendezvous. Both are young white mon, who stood well in the com- munity Tfrhere they live, and were not suspected, _ TJN WORTHY MOTIVES Alleged the for the Quarantine EatablUbed by on JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Jan. 27. Sec- retary Blaine has transmitted to Gov- ernor Francis a copy of the correspond- ence relating to the action of the Mexi- can government based on an official al- legation of the prevalence of hog chol- era in Kansas. It appears that the Minister at Washington cabled his government on the 12th ult. that the Mexican consul at Kansas City rec- a vigorous quarantine on the frontier as the hog cholera was preva- lent in -Kansas. The authorities were notified to take the, necessary steps and on the 6th inst. ten cars of bogs arrived at Piedras Negras, but after inspection were allowed to pass, a fee of SCO being collected. Americans in Mexico protest that the consul who made the report was actu- ated by unworthy motives, but Minister Ryan explains that he has no informa- lon relative thereto that would warrant his interference.

LEADVTIXE, Col., Jan. when the men engaged in a drift of the i La Plata mine had fired around of boles they were astonished by hearing a noise resembling the rushing of a mighty river, and when the smoke cleared away they saw a river Tanning out of tho drift. They barely had time to escape and in less than fire hours the mine was flooded to within 270 feet of the surface. Four thousand feet of drifts are sub- merged and thousands of feet of slopes are covered. Many think that a lake was encountered and that when the opening was made by the shots it burst through the thin barrier and flooded the mine. _______________ Death.

DENVER, Col., Jan. terrible storm raged in Eastern Colorado all Sat- urday and Friday night. Denver streets were almost deserted from morning to night, and reports from the divide coun- try show it to be the worst storm in years. Trains on the Santa Fe, liio Grande A. Fort were moved only by gangs of section men clearing the sand which fills tho cuts from the rails. The path of the heaviest storm is down the mountains through Monument, Col- orado Springs and Manitou. A tele- phone message from Monument said that many outbuildings had been de- stroyed and citizens were moving from their houses and taking refuge in the brush. It reached a hurricane at Mani- tou. Buildings are reported wrecked and sidewalks lifted bodily and hurled through the air. To add to the ominous situation, fire has broken out in the tween Manitou and Pike's Peak and is spreading over the hills with fearful rapidity. It is only two miles from the town and a slight change in the wind would soon drive it into town and noth- ing could save the beautiful mountain resort, with its mammoth hotels and elegant cottages. Heavy explosions along the mountains in the vicinity of graders' camps on the Pike's Peak rail- road leads to the belief that the fire has reached the powder magazine. There are hundreds of men in the mountains and grave fears are entertained for their safety. TTires are also reported on the mountains east of Pike's Peak. It Is reported that the wind is unusu- ally severe on Pike's Peak and that at a railway grading camp half way up the mountain several men were killed by being blown over a precipice. This re- port, however, is not confirmed. North of Denver the storm has devas- tated the country for miles, and at Louisville, the center of the storm, many buildings were completely wrecked. At Fort Collins the new col- lege building was demolished and trains on all the lines were compelled to stop in sheltered places to avoid the storA. Reports from Idaho are that the worst snow storm of the season has been rag- lug since Friday afternoon, all through the Territory. The Utah Northern railroad is completely blocked again and all rolling stock and motive power has been ordered sidetracked until the storm is over. The Central Pacific is also in worse condition than ever. It was re- ported Saturday that the fast mail side- tracked at Shady Run for the past ten days, on which the Howard Athensem Company is. had been gotten out and that the company was on their way to Omaha to pick up their thread of en- gagements, but later advices prove this false The unfortunate train is still Stuck fast and not likely to get out for several days. Nothing can be learned to their condition. TWO CENTS. LATEST HEWS ITEMS. I by oil fmrtt Earth. T Petroleum baa been struck at town, N.
