REVOLTING CRIMES Charged Against an Official of the Penn- sylvania Institution for Instruction of the Blind. PHILADELPHIA, March 17. Harry King, prefect of the Pennsylvania In- stitution for the Instruction of the Blind, was arrested Sunday, charged with sodomy, on a warrant sworn out by Thomas W. Barlow, a member of the State Board of Charities. The arrest is the outcome of an investigation begun on Tuesday last by the board of man- agers of the institution, of charges made against the management by one of the instructors. The investigation has created intense interest by reason of the character of testimony offered by a number of the blind boys who are- in- mates of the institution. King was taken from bed the home of his father at Rutledge, Delaware County, and brought to the Central station here, hpre he was given a hearing. John W. Ganes, aged seventeen, a blind pupil, told the stories of a series of crimes extending over a period of three years or more, which had been committed not only with himself but with other boys in the school. Ganes was the only witness pmxluced and at the conclusion of his testimony King was locked up in default of S3. 000 bail. King denies emphatically the terrible sharge and expresses the belief that it is the result of a conspiracy. He de- nounces the charges of misappropriation of funds, cruel treatment of the inmates and supplying them with insufficient and poor food, as being absolutely false. During the interview the prisoner broke Sown and wept bitterly. He will proba- bly be indicted by the grand jury to-day and his trial will take placo in a day or two. King has been with the Institution for nine years. A SWIFT PUNISHMENT. Fol- Crevasse in the Levee at Wide.

Lewis attempted to run, but was hit in the back and dropped lead. Stanton was jailed, but a mob of tea aicn wearing masks marched to tho jail and putting a rope about neck dragged him to a livery stable, where they bung him to a rafter. An Kxftdoft of GrniKiE.

Naw ORLEANS, March Times- Democrat's Vicksburg special says: A personal visit made to Raleigh, or Pecan Grove, yesterday, satisfied your corres- pondent that the reports had not been exaggerated as to the extentof the dam- age. At three o'clock tho crevasse waa feet wide and the ends were caving so rapidly that it was foolhardiness to approach them. The levee is nearly fifteen feet high and the immense vol- ume of water was rushing through it in a stream ten or more feet deep. The ex- tent of tho crevasse and the immense amount of water delivered by it may be estimated by the fact that in twenty- four hours ending last evenimg the river had three inches at Vicksburg and four at Lake Providence, though rising st udily prior to the crevasse. Assista.it Engineer who arrived at the crevasse last evening, if quoted as saying that no crevasse at any point along the line of the fifth levee district could occasion such seri- ous results as the one at Raleigh. The steamer Osceola took Captain Young, of the United States engineers, to Green- ville with a large quantity of material to be used in holding the ends of the levee, and prevent further caving and enlargement. This work yill be di- rected by engineers Thompson and Hyde, who will use a pile driver. The water from the crevasse has backed up several inches and flooded some planta- tions. It will overflow fully one-fourth of East Carroll parish and the greater part of Tensas and Madison parishes. The eastern part of the latter will escape. The water has not yet reached the Vicksburg, Shreveport Pacific rail- road, and probably will not for several days. The crevasse has Excited much consternation in these parishes and stock is being removed as fast as possi- ble. A fall of five inches occurred yes- terday at Alsatia levoe, five miles above the crevasse, greatly improving the sit- uafion there. This levee was hereto- fore considered in the greatest danger of all. Advices from other Lonisiai levees and from Mississippi show that the crevasse has relieved the pressure on them. A levee inspector, the soli- tary witness of the break at Raleigh, says seventy-five feet ol the levee caved off at once. in syndicate THE BRIDGE_GAVE WAY. Two Men Killed and Four Injured by the Collapse of ail Old Structure. GLEN'S FALLS, N. Y., March urday morning an old wooden bridge across the Hudson river, connecting this city with South Glen's Falls, gave way, precipitating seven workmen to the rocks beneath, a distance of thirty feet. Two men were instantly killec and their bodies rolled into the river and floated away. Their names are Nel son Sanscoui, a workman, and Charles Carr, a mail-carrier, who was standing on the bridge watching the work. Carr'! body was recovered a half mile down the river; that of Sanscoui has not been found. Four workmen were badly injured These four men were saved from drown ing by clinging to the logs and floating down the river. They were rescued b men in boats a mile below the wreckei bridge. _______________ Shrewd Detectlre Work Rewarded.

The offense was committed a a lonely spot on the road and shrewd detective work was required t  BU11 Wltk TaoT, N. Y., March calamity teralting in the death of three person! eeoorred in this city Saturday morning, when tons of clay swept down Warren's hill and carried before it a double brick hoose situated on the east side of Haver- man's avenue. Not an intimation of the approaching disaster received. The residents of that locality had lived tinder the shadow of Warren's hill for years and felt secure. The first note of warning came when at three o'clock a roaring sound was almost immediately Utlowed by a crash that sounded for docks away arid awakened householders x> a scene which they will never forge The first arrivals at the spot were en- veloped in clouds of dust, and through she gloom a pile of debris "was all that could be discerned. Two hoi'rs elapsed before the extent of the accident could learned. The occupants of the house were sixteen in number. The killed are: Mrs. Johanna Hogan, aged forty years, widow; Mrs. Mary Noonan, her mother, aged eighty-eight years; Annie Burns, grandchild of Patrick Can field, aged eleven years. The persons killed occu- pied sleeping apartments in the rear part of the buildings. Those who es- caped were in the front part of the house. One of the most singular features of the disaster is the fact that all the per- sons in the building who were not killed outright succeeded in extricating them- selves from the mortar, bricks and tim- unassisted. The clay bank is hun- dreds of feet high, towering at an angle of forty-five degrees from the dwellers on Haverman's avenue. The portion which became loosened started 200 feet up the slope, and by the time it reached Canfield's house the force of the tons upon tons of dirt was terrific. STARVING INDIANS. t V l Sickening of Destitution Related by a Catholic Blihop Who Visited the Chlppewas In North Dakota. PHTLADELruiA. March Rev. John Shanley, Bishop of North Da kota, occupied the Cathedral yesterday and made an appeal for aid for the suffering Chippewa Indians in his diocese. He said the Government had stolen of land from these Indians without giving a cent of compensation therefor. Two thousand Indians were starving and freezing on acres of barren, swampy and ground, which would not keep 100 white men alive. The Bishop gave terrible details of suffering which he had witnessed while visiting these Indians. The Bishop related his experience during a visit to the Indians when the thermometer was forty-four degrees be- low zero. The Indian houses are log huts constructed by the Indians them- selves, without flooring and with sheets and quilts covering the windows and doorways. The crevices between the logs are filled with mud that cracks and falls out by tho summer heat and is blown out by the northern winter blasts, so that thj occupants may as well be sleeping outside. In these huts it is not inf-equent to find six families living. These Indians can not make their own living there. They have never been supplied with proper agricultural imple- ments. Last spring the director of the Catholic Indian Bureau sent tm'enty- four plows to these Indians and with these they managed to break SOO acres of land. But there was no rain and to- day they are absolutely destitute. Saved From Lynching by His Intended Victim. BISMARCK, N. D-, March Hamlin, a St. Paul newspaper corres- pondent, attempted to shoot State Sen- ator Alexander MacKenzie in the lobby of the Sheridan House Saturday after- noon, but the latter disarmed the news- paper man and with tho revolver that had been pointed at him held at bay a crowd of tho legislator's friends who wore bent upon.lynching the would-bo murderer. Having saved Hamlin from violence, MacKenzie gave him his re- volver and escorted him to the depot, where Hamlin boarded a train and was carried beyond the reach of his enemies. to Acknowledge Guilt. Fr.r.DKUtcK. Md.. March Sat- urday's session of tho Washington M. E. conference. Bishop Foster cau.fsd a ripple of excitement when he staled that he had been told some members of tho conference were tipplers. Continu- ing he said: "I would be glad if. at, tho clow of this address, the men. no mat- ter who they are. would rise up and ask to Ire dismissed from this conference, and if not. I hope they will solemnly TOW never to partake of intoxicants in the future." Xo one arose. M-HJ, March CapUin  ut on trial for the killing of ex-Repre- sentative Taulbee.

It is claimed that the explosive is entirely free from the ob- jectionable qualities possessed in other smokeless powders. Tho President has issued a proclama- tion ordering intruders on the Cherokee strip to leave, as the lands still belong to tho Indians and not to the United States.
