The election of officers, was the order of business announced ^t the opening of the morning seseion of the General Assembly, and nominations were at once called for. Daniel J.

Aleasares That Will Be Taken for Thor- *oughly Disinfecting the Town. Jacksonville, Fla,, Nov. 20.—At lait the pedple in the stricken city, and the refugees from it, may know what measures will be employed for the disinfection of the town and where the losses will fall. The following letter has been wriften by Surgeon-General Hamilton to Surgeon Porter, who is in charge here: “You will inform the city council through the mayor, Mr. Giro, that articles actually necessary to be destroyed will be paid for. All articles of clothing and bedding that can be disinfected by being plunged into a disinfecting solution and afterwards plunged into boiling water could be so treated. For this purpose a laundry house should be immediately constructed, or if in your judgment it can better be done the laundry already in operation will be rented. My opinion is that the class of articles that need necessarily to be destroyed is an extremely limited one. Mattresses and their contests, pillows and comforts cannot well be disinfected, at least without the employment of a process so expensive as to render it useless from an economic point of view. With these exceptions I think all the articles in sick-rooms can be properly disinfected. Bed-chamber walls should be sponged and washed down with a solution ■ of bi-chlorid© of merctiry, and such articles as sheets, pillowcases and blankets should be first plunged in a disinfecting solution and afterwards put in boiling water. Wearing apparel hanging in closets adjacent to Ded-chambers, carpets of bed-chambers and rugs in bed-chambers should be subject to disinfection by steaming. All houses should be exposed to air currents as much as possible. Upholstered furniture should be treated by spraying with bi-chloride of mercury solu-tion.’^ 'ANARCHIST CIRCULAR. An Inflammatory Appeal to the Work-Ingmen of Chicago. An Anarchist circular, of the style made familiar bj' Parsons and Spies, was well distributed in Chicago on the 23d through the saloons of the west and northwest sections of the city. After asking subscriptions to defend the supposed dynamiters, Hronek, Cleboun and Sevic, whose trial is to begin on Monday, the circular says: “Notwithstanding it (the law) has murdered a niunber of onr brethren, this capitalistic beast thirsts for more blood, and apparently will not be satisfied until it gets it VVorkingmen of Chicago cannot tell nowadays what will happen. Any day they are liable to be taken away Irom their breakfast tables, torn from their families and h>cked up in jail on account of some trivial complaint from capital.The paper goes on to say that capital must be crushed, and claims that the only way to do it is for the w^orkingman to organize and fight for his rights. The circular is printed in German and Bohemian and signed by Fritz Benthin on behalf of the newly organized Arbeiter Rechts Schütz-Ver-ein.TERROM IN Anarchy and Bloodshed in the Pacific Ocean. INSULTS TO AMERICAN CITIZENS. Cerman Officers Ruling With mn Iron Hand—People Assaulted on Public Streets—Two Great Armiea Drawn Up in BatMe Array. TWO BOYS DIE BY THE ROPE. £xecntion of Jake and Joe Tobler at Wichita, Kas. Wichita, Kas., Nov. 21.—Jake and Joe Tobler (colored) were executed this morning in the county jail in the presence of but a few people, by federal authorities. The death warrant was read at 10:20 o’clock in front of their cell and the death procession reached the scaffold shortly after. W^hile the legs of the condemned were being pinioned, prayer was ofi’ered by Mrs. Cail. The trap was sprung at 10:25. Jake did not move a muscle, while Joe, during the second minute, drew up his legs twice. The crime for which they were executed WAS the killing of Cass and Goody Kuntz, near i^ac and Fox ^ agency in August, 1885. The murdered men were engaged in business at Vinita, in the territory, and were on their way to Northern Texas, camped about one ’mile from Sac and Fox agency. While asleep they were murdered,’ The Tobler boys'were soon after arrested with property of the murdered men in their possession, and confessed. BIG BLAZE AT FORT WAYNE. immense Electric Light Plant Burns With a L.OSS of S2o0,000. Fort W^'ayne, Ind., Nov. 23!-r-The Fort Wayne Jenney Electric Light Co.^s plant was entirely destroyed by fire at 2 A. M. to-day. Loss on the biailding and machinery is $350,000; insurance $150,-000, divided among thirty difi*erent companies. The fire originated in the third floor from an unknown cause. Fully 300 workmen are thrown out of employment. ' *Xwo hundred and eighty em ployes are thrown out of work by the fire and the city lose one of its largest manufacturing plants. The btiildings which covered ^bout three acres, were entirely new and the machinery had not been in use over a year. A meeting of the stockholders will be called on the return of General Manager McDonald, who is now in New York. It is expected that the works will be rebuilt at once. San Feancisco, Cal., Nov. 24.—The steamer Mariposa, from Sydney and Auckland, arrived here to-day. The correspondent of the Associated Press at Apia, Saifaoa, under date of November 6, writes that matters are daily growing worse in Samoa instead of im-provintr* The American, British and German consulates are guarded by platoons of marines from the men of war, Adams, Lizard and Adler respectively. The buildings are all fortified by sand bags placed on all sides ot a height of three or four feet. The marines carry loaded muskets and all persons approaching at night are halted before they can enter the buildings. This state of aflfairs went into operation October 24, and was caused by acts of the Germans, w’hose attitude towards the Americans and English as well as toward natives is becoming unendurable. A patrol of three armed sailors from the German man-of-war Adler travels the streets of Apia with loaded muskets and fixed bayonets every night. A lew nights ago the patrol met two English gentlemen on Main Street, when one of the German sailors without provocation, Struck Mr. Ritchie, one of the En-glishmeii, a heavy blow in the face, knocking him down. The Englishmen, who were unarmed, did not resist the blow, but Ritchie reported the affair to the British consul, Col. Logan. Capt. Pellis, of the English man-of-war Lizard, heard of the occurrence and visited the British consul for the purpose of determining what steps should je taken in tlie matter. During the early part of November the Germans threatened to report some Americans who opposed their proceedings. Among these was H. T. Moors, an Atnerican citizen, and the largest merchant in Apia. While Tamasese, the rebel king, who is a tool of the Germans, was besieged on Mulinuii Point, near Apia, some of his warriors entered the house of an American named Scanlan, drove him and his family out of their house, killed hij^ live stock, and threatened to take Scan Ian’s life. This was done within 15' yards of the fort erected dv German on Mulinuii Point and in lull view o the German garrison; but the latte made no eflort to stop this proceeding Natives repeated the performance a few days later whereupon Capt. Sear^ of’ the United States man-oi-war Adams, conveyed such a positive communication to tne captain of the German garrison as caused them to restrain the ’natives for the time being "from further acts of violence. The three years’ cruise of the Adams expired two months ago but such was the serious condition of aflfairs that Capt, Leary de-tcideii to remain there until relieved by the man-of-war Nepsic from Callao. October 10 a boat load of Tamasese’s men tired into a large boat filled with Mataafa’s men who -were peacefully paddling up the harbor, unarmed. None of them were hit, but a number of natives, and one English house were hit b]^ bullets which flew across the main • street. As a result of this Admiral Fairfax, of the English man-of-war Calliope, which was here at that time, sent word to Tamasese that he had left orders with the captain of the English man-of-war Lizard that in case the proceeding was re- ieated the Lizard should fire into amasese!s boats. Tamasese is now' encamped with his followers, 1,700 in number, at Salnatifa, about twelve miles from Apia. He has built forts and rifle pits and is awaiting the Mataafa men, it having been understood on both sides that a battle would take place early in November. Mataa-fa's men number 8,000 picked warriors. Both sides are armed with repeating rifles. Mataafa haa received large detachments from Savaii, one of the Samoan group. On tne 5th inst. Mataafa’s army took up its march on the forts of the ’Salnatifa. All day natives were moving out from Apia where they have been encamped. Some men are carrying two repeating rifles while all have one piece. War canoes, some holding 100 men, have been coming into Apia harbor from Adams, and the sight is a magnificent one. All the warriors are singing battle songs as they go by,'each wearing a white head dress of Mataafa and keeping time to the beat of paddles. They are all men nearly six feet in height and have fine physical development. It i|^eported that the German vice-consuif Brande, an ex-German artillery officer, and two other Germans, went to Tamasese’s fort at Sainatifa, October 18, and gave him several hundred rifles, several thousand cartridges and a barrel of dynamite. October 24, sailors from the man-of-war Adler fired into a boat load of Mataafa’s men who were paddling along to Apia. None were hit. Soon after the Germans fired a volley into several foreigners’ houses. A public indignation meeting was held and as a result United States Consul Blacklock and the British consul requested the respective men-of-war to fortify the consulates so that a place of refuge might be offered foreigners m case of emergency. The United States consul posted a notice stating that precautions had been taken to protect the Americans from farther outrages by Uiie Germans. Americans in Apia complain that the United States government has neglected to ofler them the necessary protection to which they are entitled, though Capt. Leary, of the Adams, has done everything possible to protect American interests. The great battle of Salnatifa is expected to occurr hourly. Rocfcets were seen ascending from the vicinity of Tama-sese’s fort at a late hour last night. ^ The United States man-of-WAr Nipsic is expected here daily from Callao. She will relieve the Adams and the latter vessel will sail at once for San Francisco. FEVER ON^E BOSTON. Several Deaths Among tli« Crew Fr«m th« Tetlow Scourg«. Nkw York, Nov. 24,—^The United States steamer Boston, which was last reported at Port au Prince, Hayti where she was sent when the Haytien government seized the American steamer Haytien Republic, reached New York this morning and anchored in quarantine. The following is the report of the Boston, as made to the ship news collector: “The United States steamer Boston, Commander Ramsey, officers and men numbering 356, all told, left Port au Prince on November 16. Had strong northeast winds most of the passage. Surgeon Simon, Frank Thomas, seaman, and Chas. Mitchell, ordinary seaman, are sick on board, John J. Kelly, apprentice, died November 20. E. J. Trapp, apprentice, died on the same day. On November 21 John Uzelman. seaman, died. On November 22, John Retzel, marine, died. The rest of the ship’s officers and crew are quite well. Y^ellow fever is supposed to have been the cause of the sickness and deaths on the steamer.” The officers of the Boston decline to make any statement regarding the steamer Haytien Republic, recently seized by the Haytien authorities. They say' the matter will have to be settled by the authorities at Washing- - tOjl. Admiral Gherardy, of the Brooklyn navy yard, received a communication to-day from Commissioner Ramsey, of the Boston, stating that there had been several ciises of yellow fever on board the vessel. No new cases, however, have occurred since the 19th hist. Admiral Gherardy has dispatched a tu£ boat to the Boston with the ship’s mail. He does not know how soon the health authorities will allow' anybody to board the Boston. ASSAULTED ON THE BENCH. An Illinois Criminal Almost Kills a Judg^e Who Sentenced Him« Pboria, III., Nov., 24.—William Sheehan, a local tough who has spent sever al terms in the penitentiary, assaulted and almost murdered Police Justice William Mooney just after the latter had imposed upon him a workhouse sentence for assaulting Mr. G^oenwold, a jeweler. After being sentenced Sheehan turned to a lawyer sitting near and said with an oath, “I would like to kill that old bald-headed fool.” And picking up the chair on which he had been sitting he struck the magistrate on the head, knocking him senseless. The legs of the chair were broken by the blow% Sheehan was immediately re-ar-rested on the charge of assault with attempt to commit murder, and in default of $10,000 bail was taken to the county jail. He will be tried under the habitual criminal act and will undoubtedly get a long sentence in the penitentiary. Magistrate Mooney will recover. QUEENS OF THE ROAD. Escape from Jail of Two Dashing Female Slorse Thieves. Hutchinson, Kas., Nov. 21.—Tw'o female horse-thieves—Ida Weston - and Emma Mentry—escaped from Hamilton County jail last night. The sheriff was in Newton on other business, and had left the keys to the jail in the Opera Hotel. Someone who must have been perfectly familiar with the hotel, let the female thieves out, and then returned the keys to the drawer in which they had been locked up. These daring queens of the road have been stealing horses for a year, having run ofl thirteen animals. The girls arc of a dashing type, both blondes and handsome. Ida is the daughter of a Philadelphia minister and Emma claims to be the daughter of a wholesale clothing dealer in Boston. TWO OF THE SAME KINU. Another 6350,000 Libel Suit Against the Chicago Times. A suit for $250,000 damages was instituted against The Chicago Times Company in the superior court in that city on the 24th by the oonsolidated Rapid Transit & Elevated Railroad Company. The suit IS for alleged libel for the publication of a leading editorial in the Times charging in stronger language tfian before that the Consolidated Company is a corruptionist and has bought up the City Council. This is a second suit for a like amount begun by the same company against the same paper, and on the same grounds within a week, making an aggregate of a half million damages sought to be recovered. g ARMS FOR THE REBELS. A YOUNG man in Asheville' N. C., broke'his leg while pulling ofi’ a tight boot. One Thousand Rifles I^eave New York for the Haytian Insurgents. New* York, Nov. 21.—Ebenezer D. Bassett, Haytian consul geneial, said this morning that while there could be no doubt that the 1,000 rifles and a cargo of ammunition, taken to Monte Cris-to on the Clyde steamship George W. Clyde, were destined ultimately for the insurgents in Hayti, the customs authorities could not stop them as they w*ere lawfully consigned to another port. This consignment, added to that of the Saginaw, gives fourteen rifles and plenty of ammunition to each man, woman and child in Monte Cristo. A MAGNIFICENT GIFT.

Edinburgh, Nov. 24.—^The judgment passed by Judge Kinnear in the case of Parnell against the Times, allowing proof on the question of arrestment^ and from which the Times appealed, has been unanimously upheld by the judges of the firet division of the court of sessions. HIS KillFE FAILED HIM. The    Fiend IJnsuccessfnil ia aa ▲tteaipt at. Murder—Escape of the CThosen Tlctitn—In the Hands *»f liie Mysterious Assassin the Wonuin Kvades the Fatal Blow—How the Lon> don Terror Looks—A Hot Chaee. Lostdon, Nov. 21,—Great eicitement was occasioned this morning when it was reported that another woman had been murdered and mutilated in Whitechapel. The police immediately formed a cordon around the premises. An enormous crowd rushed to the vicinity in which the crime was said to have been committed, where it was leared that another murder had been attempted upon a low woman by a man who had accompanied her to her lodging, but that in this instance his work had been frustrated.    [ According to the story the man liid seized her and struck her once in the throat with a knife. She struggled desperately and had succeeded in freeing herself from the man’s grasp and had screamed for help. Her cries had alarmed the man and he fled without attempting any further violence. Some of the neighbors w'ho had heard the w'oman’s screams followed the murderer for about 300 yards, when he disappeared from their sight. The woman says she is fully able to recognize the man and gave a description of him to the police. The police are hopeful of soon capturing him. The man and woman, it seems, had been passing the night together and he suddenly attacked her with a long sharp Knife, making a frightful gash in her throat. The woman struggled desperately and raised such an outcry that the man fled. Three men living in an adiacent house pursued him but he made his way adroitly through the crowd in a manner that indicated thorough familiarity with the locality, and eluded his pursuers. It is said the w'ould-be assassin is . well-dressed man and wore a light moustache. His victim recovered sufficiently afterwards to describe her assailant as tall, fair and well-dressed, and speaking pure English. The woman’s name is Farmes. An effort is being made to quièt the excited citizens and it is this evening asserted that the Scotland Yard authorities are convinced that the assault on the woman w’as not the work of the Whitechapel fiend. Thè excited popu* lace, however, believe still that the assailant was “Jack the Ripper” and assert that the police are tryingfto throw dust in their eyes. The woman suffered only a slight abrasion of the skin on her throat and the police say they place no credit in her story of an attack. They claim to believe that she inflicted the injury herself while she was drunk; No arrests have 5 et been made. The streets in the Whitechapel districts are thronged with an excited mob. TRAMPLED UNDER FOOT. Flames Break Out in a Crowded School Buildiug. New York, Nov. 22.—At fifteen minutes past’1 o’clock this afternoon fire broke out in the first public school at Long Island City. One of the pupils of the school had gone into the basement and lighted a gas jet. The woodwork close to the jet took fire and’the flame shot up through a crevice in the floor. Over 900 children were studying at their lessons in their various rooms of the buildincr. When the children on the first floor saw* the flainei shooting up through the boards Ihey gave the alarm. Instantly there was a panic in every room of the school building. The children rushed pell-mell for the narrow doors, crow’ding, jostling and striking each other in their efiorts to get out. The children were piled up at the foot of the stairw'ays in heaps and all attempts to bring order out of the confusion were at first fruitless but finally the firemen and police were able to check the children, although they had to contend with an excited mob of weeping mothers that had appeared as soon as the new's of the fire spread through the neighborhood. The fire itself amounted to little and as soon as it was extinguished an examination of the injured was commenced. It was found that while hundreds were badly brufeed and shocked no one was fatally or seriously hurt. TROUBLE AT SAN DOMINGO. An Uprising Threatened Owing to an Election Dispute. Washington, D. C., Nov. 23.—No further information has been received at the State or Navy Departments from Port au Prince relative to the troubles in Hayti. The State Department was advised- to-day, however, by the United States consuls at Puerto Plata and San Domingo that an insurrection is probable at San Domingo over the coming ^lection for president. Two candidates are in the field for that office, but one of them, Gen. Huereux, prevailed upon his opr>onent to withdraw. The followers of the latter believe their t-ai.-didate was threatened with death unless he withdrew, and now threaten to kill Gen. Huereux if he should be elect-ed. TWO AMAZED WIDOWS. Strange Scene In a Probate Court at St. Cloud, Minn. St. Cloud, Minn. Nev. 20.—A queer ■cene was that enacted at the probate court when Mrs. Mary Jane Smith, of Wisconsin, and Mrs. Anna Smlth^ of Hamilton. Ont., both widows of engineer Jonn Smith, who was killed on a railroad last spring, encountered each other at the hearing of the appointment of administration of his estate, which consists only of the claim aerainst the railroad for his death. Both women were fimazed and the spectators excited. Judge Bruener has ordered a , hearing of tneir respective claims to sor-] row for Mr. Smith. Worried Himself to Death. ' Chicago, 111., Nov. 23.—John Rajnson Oaderdonk, who has been superintending the new water tunnel and caisson, 4ied of pneumonia yesterday,, aged 48 years. His ill-success in launching the new caisson worried him greatly, and in his repeated trips to the lake shore he caught a severe cold, which developed i&to pneumonia. ONLY FOR_^IPLOYES. The Inter-State Commission Rules on the Annual Pass Questiotn« Washington, D. C., Nov. 24.—The inter-siate commerce commission rendered a decision to-day in the case of Slater vs. the Northern Pacific Railway Company, which states that ’a complaint made for the purpose of retaliation for fancied wrong so as to get even with a carrier for revocation of the complainant’s pass does not commend itself to the commission. A carrif r which has conformed to the rulings of the commission should not be prosecuted for alleged violations of law in that respect w. ich have occurred before such ruling was made and under a construction of law’ then approved by carrier’s counsel. Free transportation issued in the form of an annua! pass to a person not in the regular and stated service of the carrier nor receiving any wages or salary under contract of employment, but requested by him as compensation for throwing in its way anv business he conveniently could, is held to be illegal. GUNS FOR COAST DEFENSE. TUe Dynamite Projectile to Be Used— Bids for Armament. Washington, D. C., Nov. 23.—Capt Zalinski, the inventor of the pneumatic dynamite gun, was in consultation w*ith the chief of ordnance and the chief of engineers to-day, rejecting the procurement of pneumatic dynamite guns for coast defense. The * current army appropriation bill authorizes the expenditure of 1400,000 in the purchase of these weapons and about the middle of next week the w’ar department vili issue advertisements for pro-posals for supplying the guns. Just what calibres and sizes of guns required has not yet been determined. The location of the weapons will be lelt in the hands of the engineer department and undoubtedly a number of them w ill be mounted on the shores of New York harbor. . FAT^LY HURT BY A DOG. HOW CANm SEES iT. •ea. Harrison's Plan to Buy the Dominion Causes a Sensatiou. Montreai^ Que., Nov. 23.—There is much excitement here over an alleged interview with Gen. Harrison, published in a local paper, in which the President-elect favors the purchase of Canada bv the United States and says steps to this end will probably soon l>e taken. Sir John MacDonald dedineeto be in-▼iewed, but Peter Ryan, a leading Lil>-eral of Toronto, said; ‘‘Everyone kn-iws Canada could not be purchased from Great Britain, that it 4'ould l«e obtained only by the free consent of thi* Canadian people, and that the matter would therefore have to be submitted to thé.m at general election.” A leading Conservative member of Parliament, when questioned as U w hat would be the outcome if by plebiscite vote, an ally of the province’s she ild dc dare in favcr of annexation, said; “Thé Dominion government would sim| !y ignore and treat it the same way astbt v did the provincial conference rec< ntly.’^ Notw’ithstanding all provincial fiH-a! governments are liberal, the Consejva-üves’ strong majority in the Dominion Parliament wotild prevent any action being taken until the next general election, w’hich occurs in 1891. WERE TWO girls MURDERED? V Chicago Woman Attacked and Mangle by a Kewfonndland. Chicago, is'ov. 24.—Last evening Mrs. Kounosvky was walking along Fisk Street, near Sixteenth, when she was attacked by a large Newi*oundland, the dog tearing her clothing and fastening his teeth in her flesh. He dragged her irom tlie sidew'alk to the ground but was finally driven away by the crowd attracted by her cries! When rescued the woman w’as found to be terribly lacerated about the shoulders and arms. She is in a critical condition. The dog was killed by policemen. BEDELL’S HARD LOT. The Mystery of the Chicago Boulevard Tragedy Deepening. Chicago, 111., Nov. 22.—The mystery surrounding the tragic death of Eva Mitchell, found murdered in Grand Boulevard, Was heightened to-day by t e discovery that Nettie White, an intimate friend of the dead girl, has been missing since the night of the killing. Both were about the same age ana both came here from Iowa about the same time.
