The marching of the men up and down the spar deck was to sober them. He denied depriving the men of their ham- mocks. The ironing of the men at Rouen, ho said, was necessary Their punishment consisted of extra duty and deprivation of liberty for from one to three months. The chaining of the men at Rouen was for safe-keeping and not for punish- ment He did not think there was any- thing in the story of men ironed at Naples. He acknowledged omissions iu the logbook, but explained that they were not intentional. He knew of no instance where a member of his crew was maltreated by his orders. In regard to the strait-jacketing of Sundblad he said he thought the man crazy from al- coholism. STOLE Ebers, Ex-Auditor of Henry Coun- ty. O., Proves to Have Done Up the Tax- for the Above Amount. COLUMBUS, 0., May State Au- ditor has investigated the financial con- dition of Henry County and it is found that ex-Auditor Charles Ebers has failed to account for due the State, has unlawfully received and converted to his own use in foes and has mis- appropriated that belonging to the school fund and 148.18 due the township fund is myste- riously missing. Of the delinquent personal tax claims collected was unaccounted for by the auditor, and he also failed to ac- count for any penalties imposed upon delinquent taxpayers, thus making the shortage in this one item S200 greater. The auditor also paid himself more than was legal for services ren- dered in the collection of delinquent taxes. He allowed himself too much for making- ditch notices. The report also states that S300 of the Dow liquor tax is unaccounted for. THE TIDE TURNING. Testimony In of Mrs. Van- dergrUt. the Alleged Poisoner. MT. HOLI.Y, X. J., May In the trial of Mrs. Yandergrift for attempting to poison her son, Xorman. Prof. O. G. Wood, of the University of Pennsylva- nia, testified yesterday that Norman's symptoms could hare been produced by gastro-intestinal catarrh as well as by an irritant poison He said Dr. Hull's treatment was all wrong and doubtless made the boy worse.

Th- ntsike still on and tSw <-xact3y w OaUook for Industries Trade. Mtuiy Bnuaehea of Manufacturing W1M to Depressed for Weeks Labor of last KEW YOKK, May G. Dun Weekly Review of Trade says: pects of silver legislation havinf- come less distinct, some of the specula- tive markets have reacted from th4 cent advance. At the same outlook for industries and trade is distinctly less favorable, ontafl to damage to wheat and cotton andjtisoi disturbances. The accounts ot to winter wheat grow more defini foreshadow a lower official report that of last month. A special port from Memphis indicates plantyhj 27 per cent., against 32 per cent at All time last year, unfavorable 538 out of 603 returns, material from too much rain, and extensive from floods. It is most encouraging that the demonstrations have thus far led violence, and in a number of cities desire of employers to avoid hat caused full or partial concessions. TbJhM have encouraged strikers insist upon demands, although the ployers say it is not possible to concefe, so that there is more prospect of pec- longed controversy than there waf week ago. As yet the markets for terlala have not been much affected, though sales of lumber are restricted in some cities. The success ot the ment is certain to increase the cost production in many dppartments, prices of many necessaries and the of buildings; a change which will not conduce to business activity. The im mediate prospect is that many indus- tries mar be to some extent disturbed for weeks to come. The general average of prices is nearly one per cent, lower than a week ago. Reports from other cities are gener- ally favorable as to the volume of busi- ness, and bank clearings show an in- crease over last year of ten per cent. At Boston wool is stronger on some grades that are scarce, and a better demand is seen, sales reaching pounds, and yet no improvement whatever is de- tected in the market for goods. Diffi- culties in the clothing trade do not abate and apprehension of more failures causes uneasiness in this and other cities. There is much less complaint of slow collections throughout the jSorth-- process sa west, but considerable in some linesTat Philadelphia, Boston and New York. Good crops and large sales of farm prod- ucts have made things comparatively easy at the West, but the effects of two successive open winters are felt m east- ern markets. Run OD CkOMs IU ATLAXTIC Crnr, N. J., Yester- day a notice was posted on the doors of the Merchants' bank in this city notify- ing depositors that the bank would sus- pend business temporarily. The state- ment circulated that the bank was connected with the defunct Bank of America. Philadelphia, causing the de- positors to make a heavy run on it and the funds ran out. The statement of the connection with the Bank of America is denied by the cashier, but the main bank, with its branches at PlcasantviUe. Mullica Hill and Egg Harbor City, are all ordered closed.

It leaked out yes- terday that Miss Leonora Smith, daugh- ter of ex-Mayor Smith, and John Robin- son, Jr., the showman, slipped over to Gretna Green from Maysvillo, Ky., last Wednesday evening and were married by the famous Squire Beasloy. Miss Smith's father, who is now United States Collector at this port, denies the story, but his language shows that he is not altogether sure about it, although he instate that his daughter had no oc- casion to elope. A Stubborn Salamander. MARTIN'S FEBBT, O May 8.- The contractors who have been at work for tiro weeks blasting out the salamander in the Benwood blast furnace hare given up in despair. Enormous charges of dynamite have been used and con- siderable damage done to surrounding property, but the salamander is as firm as ever. The mass contains about 100 tons. Its remarkable tenacity has at- tracted a great deal of attention. It is feared that the furnace will be ruined. Carponten on Strike.
