State of Trade is Not Flattering, KotwitteUndlng an Enormous Volune of Arrest of a Young- tlau on a Charge ol Shooting His Claims It Was an LEEUGIITOX, Pa., jVlarch sad case of shooting occurred here Thurs- day night, which icstilted in the almost instant death of Miss Gertie Iliskey, a handsome girl, sixteen years of age. Webster Campbell, of Woissport, Pa., was paying his attentions to Miss His- key. lie says that after the other mem- bers of the fsmily had retired he re- moved a revolvsr from his pocket and placed it on a bureau. Tbe weapon fell to the floor and was accidentally dis- charged. The hall entered Miss His- key's brain and she ftill to the floor and soon after expired. Yesterday the corcmer's jury rendered a verdict that Miss Hiskey came to her death by a pistol shot wound at the hands of Webster Compbell. Two cham- bers of the revolver were found empty and it is alleged that instead of acci- dent, Miss Hiskey was shot by her lover. Campbell was arrested and lodged in Mauch Chunk jail. Bishop Esher Found Guilty. READIXG, Pa., March J, J. Eshor, of Chicago, has been founc guilty of all the slander and creating dissensions in the the committee of ministers who have been investigating thecharges the past three days. They recommend that Bishop Esher be suspended as a Bishop and as a minister of the Evan- gelical denomination until the general conference in 1891. Bishops Dubs, oi Cleveland, and Bowman, of Allentown, hare already been deposed. There Wilt be Only Eight Clubs. LOUISVILLE, Ky., March dent J. M. Braden, of the Atlantic As- sociation, yesterday notified President Phelps, of the American Association, that the Washington National League club had been admitted to the Atlantic Association. This leaves the National League with but nine clubs and unless another club can be dropped it is thought that Detroitwill be selected as the tenth club. ______________ Sailors Jailed for Mutiny. AVn.Mnfr.TOX. Del., March States Marshal Newton and Deputy Marshals Ainscow and Flinter arrived here Friday from Lewes with five of the crew of the brigantine Ernestine. The men were arrested for mutiny. They were brought to this city in irons lodged in cells in tbe Federal build- ing. They will be given a hearing be- fore Commissioner Smith to-day.

The? will IOAVC for that citr this evcnine. From present the New Yorks Trill bavcno one to play with here next week on acconnt of the lack o Demand for Show Galas Niw YORK, March G. Dun 4 Weekly Review of Trade The business of to-day is hut signs are not entirely flattering as to the business of to-morrow. Another be- lated fragment of winter, which would have been welcomed in came just in time to disturb trade a little, but the volume of business is indisputably larger than in any previous year at this season. The tonnage shipped eastward by rail from Chicago continues larger than ever. Railroad earnings thus far reported for March exceed, those of any previous year. Bank clearings at New York show a gain over last year of three per cent.; at Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago twelve per cent., and at all 'other cities of eleven per cent All signs prove that actual shrinkage of consumption is confined to a few lines those affected directly by the absence of that in other branches consumption is larger than at any former time. In some cases, as in iron, the only danger comes from the fact that a consumption clearly the largest ever known is probably sur- passed by a production far beyond all records. Reports from every part of the country represent trade as fairly satis- factory. The fact of greatest significance has been the slackening in demand for fin- ished products, and some concessions are now made in eastern markets on rails. For billets there are few sellers and no buyers and the bar mills are run- ning short of orders. In general, con- sumption is larger than a year ago, but clearly shows reaction from the great rush of last fall. The coal market is demoralized. In dry goods a prevailing feature is the extreme caution of buy- ers, except from the South, which does a, larger business than ever, but the state of trade on the w'nole is encourag- ing. Importers are rushing in goods in an- ticipation of a change of tariff, but in dress goods it is between seasons; in men's woolens trade is limited and many mills are not supplied with orders; and in cottons, while sales are fair in vol- ume, the present high price of material affects profits. Cotton has been steady. Wool is dull and weaker, the very best Ohio fleece commanding only 33 to cents at Boston, and delaines being neg- lected. The monetary situation has changed for the better more distinctly than any other. Will Soon Vote on the World's Fair Bill Morch House Committee on Rules met yesterday and decided to report favorably the resolu- tion introduced by Mr. Candler setting apart Tuesday, March 25, for voting on the World's Fair bill. The resolution provides that debate on the bill shalJ begin immediately after the reading ol the journal and continue until four o'clock, when voting on the third read- ing and engrossment of the bill shall commence.______________ Flack Conspiracy Case. NEW YORK, March defense in the Flack case was begun Friday Counsel for the defense attempted to prove that Mrs. Flack was a drunkard, but court ruled that in cross-exam ining Mrs. Flack in regard to her drink- ing habits, the defense had bound them selves by her answers and were now de barred from further inquiry in this di- rection. This is an important victory for the prosecution. Recovered. IXDIAXAPOT.IS, March Ion; search for the body of foreman Jlenry Woodruff was rewarded yesterday after noon by finding it near the center of the debris of the Bowen-Merrilt building almost at the bottom of the cellar. While some believe that other bodies are in the ruins the authorities place no confidence in the many rumors afloat and will make no further search. Met the Redaction In Rxlr. ST. Locis.

CM Her WILKESBARRE, Pa., March Button, of this city, in receipt of in- numerable letters from tbe cities of thim State, New York, New Jersey and other States asking if any help ift needed in relieving the distress of the mining population. Most generous offers of as- dstance hare been received, but to all lie answers no such help is needed. XVilkesbarre is .an exceptionally rich city and her people very generous in all such cases, so she is abundantly ablo to'care for her own poor. The mayor is not pleased that any idea to the contrary should get abroad, but highly appreciates the benevolent spirit which prompts the offers. M'AULIFFJETS VICTORY. Carroll a Desperate Flcht and Roandi Required to Settle the Mill. SAX FRA.XCISCO, March fight Jack McAuliffe and Jimmy Car- roll last night at the Ath- letic Club aroused great interest in sporting circles. The purse and stakes secured to the winner. The men were both in fine condition. Referring to rumors in some quarters that the Ught would not be genuine, president Fulda told both contestants that at the least sign of fouling the fight would be stopped and the men thrown from the ring. The fighting was desperate and ended by McAuliffe knocking Carroll out in the forty-seventh round. THE BROKEN LEVEE. Bad State of at Greenville, Buildings Washed Away and Railroad Tracks Submerged. (JEEE.WILI-E, Miss., March break in the levee at Off utt's got be- yond control yesterday and rapidly widened. About 600 feet of the levee was carried away. water, now cov- ers a large territory and is washing away small buildings. The Louisville, New Orleans Texas railroad track is sub- merged for a long distance, and portions of the road have been abandoned. The company is using the Georgia Pacific railroad tracks between Stoneviile and nere, but these tracks are also danger- ous. The outlook is rather gloomy. Rescued from Certain Destruction. BOSTOX, March Fonar, from London for Boston, which arrived yesterday in tow of the steamer Virgin- ian, broke her shaft March 18, when ninety miles east of Cape Cod. Sail was immediately set and the tanks filled for- ward, but on the night of March 19 she was overtaken by a heavy snow storm and fearing the steamer would sink, sig- nals of distress were set which attracted the attention of the steamer Virginian, which succeeded In taking her in tow and brought her safely to port. Elevator Exposed. BUFFALO, N. Y., March, the Sherman trial assist- ant manager Loveridge was cross-ex- amined. The daily reports of the Inter- national elevator were gone over and showed several "mistakes" as to wheat taken from the elevator and not credited to cargoes.

J., March startling developments have just been made in connection with a fatal flre which occurred at No. 6 Middlesex street, Harrison, N.

FINANCIAL PANIC. of a Bill to Extend Time of Redemption on Estate Cauaes Great Incitement la Xorth Da- kota.
