WASHINGTON, Aug. pair of al- leged lawyers have attempted to confi- dence Congressman James O'Donnell, of the Third Michigan district, by send- ing him a letter written in Spanish and dated at Toledo, Spain, in which it is stated that by the will of Marshall O'Donncll he is made the heir of a large estate, running into tbo millions. JCo one in Washington looks upon the matter in any other light than that of a thin attempt at getting a fee. It is only a few months since Minister Palmer publicly exposed a firm of these fellows in Spain. In that case an alleged priest wrote Banker Roberts, of Detroit, that be had fallen heir to a fortune. flying the Presi- :arryinv the President, 'le and Rusk and PriTate rd, entered Boston har- ternoon she was met by s of the At- Petrel, Yorktown, boat Ctishing and Cushing T.i" revenue cutter Gal- P.rackett on board anchorage, "-son landed amid the and was escorted to br the First bat- The sidewalks and of march, which were nackei who cheers.

SHEr.Ttvvir.i.K, Iud., morning a terrilic explosion occurred at Ogden's gravevarj. three miles south of Waldron, this (Shelby) county, causing great excitement. Ton acres of land were torn to pieces.

These were in terspcrsed with six or eight active goyrfers. Tho river bed was torn to pieces and the huge fissures were re the river's water.

At the bend of tbe river, the bank o; which is of limestone, is a fracture a quarter of a mile long. Stones the size of a house have been hurled from thoir places. Ths'graveyard was shaken up, the skeletons of the dead being distinct- ly seen in the fractures of the earth. Gas flows freely from the entire surface of tho ten aeries. Manjr theories have been advanced as to tho cause of the upheaval. Many people contend that it was a spantane- ous combustion of natural gas. Others think chat it was volcanic. Mr. Lowe, who got to tho sceno before tho gas ignited, is sure the upheaval was vol- canic. Inhabitants in rho lo-a'ity becofno wild with excitement, and many iett their homes. Within tho last eighteen months there have been thirteen gas wells sunk in the locality of the grave- yard, and while each have hadsomcgas, none Lave been gushers. I But Little Change In the Situa- tion. The Company Requests Protection for Its Property by State Troops. SHE WAS A CUAKJIEiC And Worked Omitbu Cit-ycns AH They Wore iSut Turned Out to be Itlffjunlst. OMAHA, Neb. Aug. Fascinating Mrs. Oliver Lynch, from Dublin, in- stalled herself at a fashionable board- ing house here several months ago. Sho claimed to be a widow with a small an- nuity, and so ensnared several suscep- tible professional uien and their pocket- books. Remittances were delayed and the widow worked her wealthy friends for all there was in it The suspicions of her landlady were aroused and Mrs. Lynch was ousted. She got another boarding houso and ynsterday tier story came out. She is tho daughter of a respectable washerwoman of Louisville. Ky., and was thero married to Joseph Lynch, a cabinet-maker. With him she went to Dublin. Rot-jrning to America she claims he deserted ber in Now York. She returned to Ireland and in Dublin was presented to Dr. Arthur Macan, who stands in tho front rank of tbe medical profession in Ireland. Mrs. Lynch was represented to be a niece of I. I. Lalor, a prominent Dublin official, and heiress to Dr. Ma- can married her. The failed to show up and the doctor started an inves. libation. His new wife calmly con- fessed her bigamy and he started" her to America with and tbe promise of annually. She has commenced di- vorce proceedings here against Lynch and claims she will bo remarried to Ma- can in New York. Omaha individuals are now busy denying even the acquaint- ance with the dashing- young bigamist A Plan to Boom Urorer. Cmr.u.o, Aug. Melville E. Stones return from Europe has given rise loan interesting bit of gossip. Ii is rumored in certain quarters that Mr. Stone is at the bead of a syndicate which has in view the publication of penny morning newspapers in sewn of the largest cities of tbe United States. Mr. Stone is an ardent admirer of Groror Cleveland. Tho story is that be and certain oth'T n have agreed to subscribe Xo Prospect of the Trouble Kxtendlnc Went of Unmtlo or to Other Neither Side Show. of Yielding. NEW YOKK, Aug. Dono- van, of the State Board of Arbitration, called upon Mr. Wobb yesterday and said that a request had boon made by tbe strikers that he meet Mr. Webb and try to arrange tbe difficulty by arbitra- tion. Mr. received him court- eously, but told him distinctly that there >vas nothinir to arbitrate. District Master YTnrkman Lee says that between here and BulT.ilo there aro about S.U'iy men out. Reports received by him from all along the lino show overythinsT to be in good condition. In his opinion those who have not gone out loan very strongly towards tho strikers. The conductor of XPW York Central train Xo. which arrived hero from Buffalo at a. m.. reported that four switches were left open in tho East Al- bany yards and the train, had it not boon for tho presence of mind of tho en- gineer, would have been wrecked. Just above Hudson live switches were alsu left open. This was discovered in time by the conductor and tho train was stopped while the train hands closed the switches. A committee from Assembly No. 34-) waited on tho yardmen and switchmen .at work in tho West Shore, yards on tho North river. The result was that about a dozen men quit work and business wae suspended there. That there seems no active disposi- tion on the part of either tbe engineers or the firemen to assist tho knights is apparent from the way in which both Chief Sarsrent, of the firemen, and Chief Arthur, of the engineers, have expressed themselves. Chief Sargent says ho is not particularly interested in the trouble and sees no reason why the fire- miMi should bo called out. Chief Arthur has taken no active pijrt in the trouble and apparently does not expect to. The following is Governor Hill's reply tc Vice President Webb's dispatch asking for protection by tho militia: f4encr.il F.trnsuorth to -aciiso to inve-jUfjrue the striUe ,iuii report It is that oitlcial rind nuthoritntive in format ion should be obtained bjfore anv overt is taken.

Whon Mr. Webb received Governor Hill's reply to his request for protection of the men and property at tho Syracuse and Do Witt yards, he called a confer- ence of tho Central officials. They de- cided to instruct Pinkorton's detectives employed there to charge tho strikers upon any show of violence and if nec- to give tbe Governor a casus belli for tho ordering out of tho troops. Tho police are taking precautionary measures for preserving the peace anil protecting property in tho event of a strike on any of the railroads terminat- ing in Jersey City. Tbe entire Jersey City force is on duty, those not on pa- trol being hold at the police station or within easy call. Quite a number of men have offered their services to the West Shore. Very little sympathy exists for the Knights of Labor on that line, as there are only FOK SHORTEK HOUKS. twenty-five Hundred at 1'im- bui-fh and AlUgtM.ey Strike for Nine- Hour Day with Tea UounT PrrrsisuiKm, Aug. Two thousand five hundred machinists and skilled mechanics struck yesterday for nine hours for a day's labor, with ten hours' pay. About of the strikers are employed by the Westinghouse Electric Company and the Ma- chine Company. Tho remainder were employed tt various shops in Allegheny City and Pittsburgh. Several firms in both cities have acceded to tho demands and tho strike will probably be of duration. The strikers hold an enthu- siastic meeting during trie afternoon. Speeches were made and committees were appointed to attend to tho details of tho strike. It is like) v that the em- ployes of tho Wixtinirhciiho Air Hrake Conip-iiiy in the Alli'-hony and Wihner- dinsj shops will strike to-day.

CHICAGO, Aug. far as present rtdications go there is no possible chance of tbe strike on the New York Central affecting the Chicajro roads belong- ng to the system, where at present the .rouble is raging. Tho situation is this: The fight now going on is one backed by tbe Knights of Labor.
