Georgia leads In Cotton and Electric Light Works. CHATTANOOGA, Teiiu., March Compiled by the Tradesman of tho new indus- Jnes e during the first three months of 18110, in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Geor- gia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia, show a total of 853 against a total of GDI for the same period in 1S89. Tradesman reports from all sec- tions of the southern states indicate greater ac- tivity in the planting of new industries in the south at present than at any other previous time in its history. The most notable feature in the report shows that sixty-four cetton and mills were established during the thiee months against thirty-three in the correspond- ing quarter last jear. Georgia ieads u ith four- teen, Alabama, North and South Carolina each lime, Texas eight. During the three months tweuty electric J'ght works were orgaui7ed Ceorgia leading with ten. Forty-three I tlour and gnst mills, North Carolina and I Virginia each leading with seven; tho total during the same quarter last jear was fifteen. foundry and machine shops were Jorgaiiized, Tennessee leading with eleven and Alabama next with ten. Twenty-three blast furnace companies were organized, against seventeen in the corresponding quarter last year; Alabama seven, Georgia six, Kentucky ten, Tennessee five, Texas and Virginia one each. Twenty-seven ice factories were organ- against twenty-four in the same period last year. mining companies, tironty-one oil mills, seven potteries, eleven rolling companies; fifty street railw ay com- panies against seventeen in the corresponding period of last year; eighteen waterworks com- panies; 167 wood workiug establishments, against an aggregate of 130 in the correspond- ing period of last year. A noticeable feature is the fact that not a single natural gas or oil company has been reported In tho past three mouths as organized south. The Eufaula Trades EtrFAuiA, Ala., March grand trades display and carnival Friday, proved a success. There were about tbirty-nve floats in line in the day procession. The pro- cession was headed by H. D. Clayton, grand marshal, and his aids, followed by the floats, extending a mile. The carnival at night was participated in by a hundred maskers in uniform. Card's band, of Macon, f urnished the music for the ball at Bight, which lasted till 3 o'clock. Tbe crowd was estimated at eight thousand. Tbe Work ol the Tract Society.

L, Shearer, presented the report of the operations of the soo.ety for the eleven months ended March 1st, and shows total receipts S3O4.263, a gain ot J26.126 over the corresponding period of tbe previous year.

The Death tUt In LoolmrlUe Has Not Beached One Hundred. IOPMVIIJ.K, March bodies have been recovered. It is supposed that five or aix more may be found in out ot way places. Ot the injured to a noticeable extent, tbe closest estimate ia one hundred and twenty- five. Snow began falling about 4 p. m. It meltg fast as it falls, and has the effect ot a gentle rain. But there has been nothing like a heavy storm, and no prospects of one. Kearly everywhere some measures were taken to protect property in, the roofless territory. In many places temporary roofs ot long planks have been put on, and in a few instances tbe permanent work was nearly finished. Tar- paulins and whatever else will turn the water have been pressed into service, and the dam- age will be greatly lessened. At the tobacco warehouses nearly everything is under tarpau- lins or other protection. Crowds of men set to work in them when It was plain that snow or rain would fall, and the farmers' consign- ments, along with manufacturers' purchases, vv ere made as secure as possible. In spite of all, however, the loss will be considerable, and may reach well toward No work has been done on the ruins today, except by individuals, and uo bodies reported, taken out anywhere during the day. Funeral piocessions followed each other iu quick succession to Cave Hill, St. Louis, Bertraud and other cemeteries, and the city has been all day in mourning. Many funerals have been with military, Ma- sonic or other honors, and some of the scenes v. ere very impressive. Masses have been at the Catholic churches and sermons preacheoV at tbe Protestant.

BresuNOHAM, Ala., March A mysterious murder was discos erea yester- day morning near Buchanan, Cleburnecounty. The dead body of a well-dressed young white man was found in an outhouse. The head hod been crushed to pieces by blows with a heavy stick, and pieces of bone, llesb and brains were scattered all over the room. By the side of the body was a valise containing some food and what are supposed to be a set of burglar's tools. There was no scrap of pa- per or anything by which tho body could be identified, and no ono in tbe neighborhood had seen the dead man alive. The body as buried without identification, and tho affair remains a mystery. _____ She Stood Before Che Mirror. KAI.KIOH, N.

TeMvl in TWVTB tbe Into Queeoctowa.. QUKKNSTOWN, March Inman line steamer City of Paris, towed by the strainer Aldflrsgate.arrived Qtteenatown at 4 o'clock this morning. The accident by which the City of Puts was disabled, occurred on Tues- day, and was cloned by the breakage of the low pressure cylinder M the pott engine, the flying pieces of metal forcing the bulkhead and disabling the starboard engine. The pas- sengers became panic stricken when they found the ship making water and that there was a tKMSihility of the vessel foundering. The water which flooded the engine compartment forced Its way through tbe injection tubes, which, It ia alleged, the engineer during hU ex- citement, neglected to shut. The starboard eu- giiie was shattered almost to pieces. port engine rooms were filled with upward ol tons of water. The port engine was useless. PBIVATE JOHN ALLEN, root WIT, Of WHO HOLDS THE PLACE OF S. S. COX- Kbw Started His Witnessed by the Qreatvat Crowd Kver Stoeu in It or Jin. BEKI.IN, March departure of Prince Bismarck for Fredericksruhe was the occasion of the greatest pubiic ovation given in Berlin since the return of the victorious troops in 1871. The only thins lacking was the official display of banting. The sight pi the crowd seemed fairly to take away the prince's breath, and he appeared to be making; a strong effort to repress his emotion. The in- terior of the railway salon was heaped with flowers. On the cushion lay the emperor's tubute, a great wreAth of violets encircling a laurel wreath with golden bfos-soms and red, white, and black ribbon attached. The empress sent a basket of elder flower blossoms and magnificent roses, Several times a great cry arose, "come hack which seemed! pain the prince. Then 1 'Wacht on Rhine" was started and awakened the deepest emotion while just before the departure of the train "Deutsch Land, Dentbch Ijand Uber Alles" was sang. The officials tried to exclude the public from the station, whereupon hundreds rushed to bay tickets for Spandau. Soon all the tickets were sold, then a raid was made on the next station, the fare to which is a crown. The prince was half pushed, half lifted from the platform. The police was utterly powerless to keep order. The Catalonlnu Workmen BARCKI.ON.I, March strike move- ment is spreadijig. Throughout Catalonia, men Lavo quit wortf, and it 13 expected that nmuy inoro will soon join the strikers. Fears are enter ained that all the factories in Catalonia will be competed to close their doors. There is a strong anarchist element among the working men. Bismarck's Birthday, BERLIN, March birthday was celebrated at Kaiber's lauterin today with a grand fete, attended by inaiiy deputies and a large concourse of people. Herr Mignel de- livered an eloquent speech on Bismarck's in- comparable services to the emperor and the empire. Thousands of people visited Bismarck today. _ To the French Chambers. PARIS, March Guichard, republican, was etected to lire chamber of deputies from the department of the Uhiue today, and M. Kaiborti, an independent republican, was elected deputy from Nice. Both take the places of deputies whose elections were quashed by the chamber.______ The Hand of Despotism. Bio JANKIRO, March decree has been. issued ordering persons guilty of publishing or telegraphing false alarmist rumors fco be tried by court-martial. NOT KISS THE BIBLE, And the Judge Approves, Calling the Cus- tom a Belie of Idolatry. PHILADELPHIA, March stylish young wo- man nacl been sworn and had partially given in her .testimony before Judge Arnold, wlien one of the jurors objected on the ground that she had not kissed tbe Bible. After a breezy discussion between counsel. Judge Arnold cut the matter abort by ordering the witness to be swom by the uplifted hand. "I am not Bald the Judge, "that this witness did not kiss the book. I would not do it book like that. This custom is a relic of idolatry, and the sooner it is abolished the better it will be. I do not think this witness ob- tertfed to kisaine the book because she intended {oluVbutItacauK It IB a dirty book. I respect her regard for her person and her health." TELEGRAPH BREVITIES.

The bill car- ries a total appropriation of JS23. The Ionian line Meamer "City of Parts" sailed -York March ITth, wai spoken west MMI MMLV WmWf WBCjr THK DTSA9TIR All went well until the twenty-fifth, when, at p. m., while the steamer was going at fall speed, the starboard engine suddenly col- lapsed and the low pressure cylinder broke, smashing the injection water pipe bursting the iron bulkhead dividing the port and starboard engines. The metal flew around in all directions. A portion of the machinery smashed through the steamer's double bottom. The water poured through tbe hole into tbe engine rooms, compelling the engineers and firemen to rush to the other deck for safety. Terrible consequences would ensued, but for the bravery of the second engineer, who, at the peril of his lite, en- veloped, as he was in hissing steam, managed to shut off tbe steam, thus saving tbe machinery from total demolition, which would have happened had the engines continued working. He then escaped unhurt. Tbe passengers were much excited, but the cap- tain and the officers succeeded in assuring them that there was no danger. The life boats were cleared in readiness for use, and the pumps kept working. Tbe steamer drifted helplessly until the 23th instant, when the captain sent Chief Officer Fasson and six men in a life boat to get into the track ot the other line steamer, in the hope of being able to mtercent the City of Chester or the Adriatic. The boat met the Adriatic, which declined to, take the City ol Paris in tow. The Aldersgatc now hove in sight, and offend to tow the City of Paris. The offer was accepted. The Aldersgate is a small steamer, unable to tow over four or nve knots hourly, and progress was slow until Satur- day, when the Ohio was sighted. She stood by until 3 p. m., when Fastnet was sighted. Two tugs were sent later. The water kept increasing in spite of the work of the pumps, the examination being made by divers. The accident occurred 916 miles west ot Fastuet. SBATKHENTB OF THK FASSBBQBRS. The statements by the passengers, which are similar to other accounts of the accident, are to tbe effect that there was a loud crash fol- lowed by tbe explosion. The ship quivered and the engine thumped. The vessel leaked rapidly from the hole in the bottnm. Tbe officers calmed the excited passengers. The conduct of the crew was admirable. Tbe weather was nne with no wind. During the sixty hours the steamer drifted, she kept show- ing distress signals, sending np rockets and burning flares On Friday morning the Adriatic was sighted. She offered to convey the passengers to New York, but the offer was declined. Tbe Adriatic proceeded, and sent tbe Aldorsgate to aid tbe City of Paris, Three tugs joined the disabled vessel and accompanied her to Queenstown. The passengers held a meeting and returned thanks to Providence for thoir delivery. They also expressed appreciation of the exemplary con- duct of tbe captain and the crew, raised a sub- scription of COO pounds for the Liverpool and New York mariner's institute. THE CAFTAIN'S BBPORT. The captain of the City of Paris has fur- nished to the company's agent at Queenstown the following report ot the accident: It must be considered a very meagre account of an oc- currence that has every appearance of being one of the most serious on record. The report is dated "from the City of Paris, March and is addressed to Cummins, and says: "Tuesday, March 25th, p. 21G miles west of Kastnet, the starboard engine broke down from some unknown cause. The cylinder went to pieces, injuring the bulkhead aud breaking the injection and water pipe connections, allowing a considerable quantity of water to run into both engine rooms and adjacent sections. No one on board injured." THK 9TKWS IS SCAJTT. Cummins himself went in a tug in meet the City of Paris which entered the harbor precisely at p. in. A number ol press agents who sought to go off to the steamer were refused admission. Indeed, throughout the whole matter scant courtesy has been shown them. "When Cummins returned he was accompanied by three persons, evidently pas- sengers, but none would give a wora of information. The second tug went oat and brought back neither mails or passengers. It was only on the arrival of the third tug, con- siderably later in the day, with a dozen pas- that anything could be gleaned to the nature ot the acci- dent. Special trains were kept in readiness here throughout tbe night with a large staff ot railway hands. Early last even- ing, probably before the actual state of affairs on the steamer was known, the Intention of the agents was to land the mails and passen- gers who desired to go ashore, and have the steamer towed straight to Liverpool. As morning approached it leaked out that the steamer would be brought to Cork harbor and all the passengers aud malls disembarked. The mails were all landed by 7 a. m., bat in- stead of tbe greatest dispatch and energy, it was well into the afternoon before the passen- gers and baggage got away. The getting of authentic and detailed information is attended with the utmost difficulty, owing to the reti- cence ot the company's officials. However, interviews with the passengers furnish a fair outline ot events, both before and after the accident._______________ Another Teasel Wrecked. LONCOM, March is learned that tbe British steamer, Quit ot Aden, from Clyde, January id, for Valparaiso, was wrecked when one hundred miles from land. Three boats, containing in all eighty-one people, left the vessel, and one of them arrived at Chilo Island, off the west coast of South America. Two steamers are searching for the missing boats. The Govenunattt Wina. IJSBOK, Match government party has carried Oporto. The minister ot colonies la elected. Dispatches from the provinces show that the government will have a strong majority in the new chamber. Serpa Pinto and Castelloes, according to revised returns, are elected in Lisbon by minority votes. The president of the recently dissolved municipal March "Private John of Mississippi, who became tbe wit of tbe bouse of representatives with the death of Sunset Cox, tells a good slety-on himself of how he came to be a pro- fotnd lawyer. A party of members were telling yarns in the cloak room of the house yesterday, and vfcen Allen's turn came he told this one: "I want to tell you of the greatest legal vic- tory ot my said Allen, as he lighted a cigar and propped his feet against the wall, in true southern style. "It was down in Tupelo, during tbe trying period jnst after tho war. I waa at that time a practicing is, whenever I had any cases to prac- dee with. One day old "Uncle" Pompey, one of the old negroes of tbe settlement, came into my office and said: John, I wants yon to cl'ar me. Tse gUlne to be 'rested for stealiii' ot two hams voVen de cross road store." t 'Well, I asked, 'did you steal the 1 a short passage In the eld BmjlUh law, dearly decides this uase and whteb, tbe moment, your honor may have forgotten. "Then I fished down into my pocket and drew forth, with a great flourish, an old copy of Julius Caesar. I opened it with great dig- nity to the first page and read the Ime which is familiar to every school-boy, 'Omnia Gallia in partes tres divisa est.' 'That decides the case, said I, throwing the book upon the table. 'That' clearly acquits the defendant.' "With great dignity and solemnity I the: took my seat. The old magistrate was com- pletely nonplussed. He looked at me a mo- ment qulzlcally, and scratchedhlshead. Then turning to Fompey, he raised himself to his full height, and said: 'Pompey, I know yon stole them bams, but by the ingenuity of your lawyer I've got to let you go. Git he said, as he planted his number nine in the seat of Pompey's panto, 'and if you ever come here agaih, lawyer or no lawyea, you git six months." "Bill Scott, ot is again coming to the front. He will be remembered as a member of the last house, and as Mr. Cleveland's closest political adviser. Mr. Scott was one of tbe few democrats who ever came to congress from a republican district. He served two terms, but was not a candidate for tbe present house. He is going to be a candidate for election to the lower house of the Pennsylvania legisla- ture. He has made an arrangement with tbe other democratic leaders of the state that it he can succeed in electing a democratic legisla- ture he will be the recognized democratic candidate for the United States senate to suc- ceed Don Cameron. Mr. Scott is as much, an admirer of Mr, Cleveland now as ever, and be is perhaps doing more work towards obtaining the vote of the next democratic convention for Mr. Cleveland than any other of his admirers. nresmentol merecem council is also elected. Speaking of Mr. Cleveland, his popularity among the people ol Washington ia something wonderful. Many say it is Mrs. Cleveland and perhaps it is, but nevertheless, tbe two Clevelands compose the most popular family with the people, that ever occupied the white house. An evidence ot the extreme unpopularity ot President Harrison, and the popularity ot Mr Cleveland was noticed at Albangh's grand op- era house last night anting the performance of the Water Queen. One of the tronp gave an im- personation of many modern celebrities. He disguised himself so as to make himself appear to be a dozen or more public men ot the pres- ent day. His impersonation ot Gladstone Parnell, Bismarck, Blaine, Cleveland, Tliur- man, Harrison and Wanamaker was perfect Blaine was applauded; Wanamaker was greeted with laughter; when Thur- man appeared the audience applauded enthusiastically; ,bnt when Cleveland appeared the house indulged in wild applause and cheering. However, when the clever artist appeared as Harrison, which was a splendid Impersonation, there was almost silence. Harrison's unpopularity with the people Is also shown by tbe very small number of viat- tors who attend his public receptions. When Mr. Cleveland occupied the white house the great east room was fairly jammed on each ot his reception days, while now the crowds ttiot attend Mr. Harrison's recep- tions appear like a few stragglers in the grea loom. No one ever calls twice to see him, tor he shakes their hands ta such an indifferen and icy manner that none care to be chilled second time. It Mi. Harrison has a single warm, personal friend, other than bis i one has ever heard ot him. "Did yon know that Governor Gordon w_ named for said Colonel Jack Brown.the well known Georgia republican lawyer, here Yesteidav. "WeU, it's a fart. Imbootoa AN OLD QUARREL Out Anew" With ratal B Scbaman Shot. BOSTON, Ga., March B. W. Daniels was summoned last night about midnight to dress the wounds of Mr. Schuman, at Aucilla, about ten miles south of ere, who was mortally shot by M. B. Linton, bout 10 o'clock with a shotgun, loaded with tren buck shot. One shot entered the left ung, and the remaining six shattered the left aoulder to pieces. The shot was made at lose range. THK QUASBKX, These parties have had previous quarrels and bout one year ago exchanged shots, but no amaga was done. Last night a young Mr. Catch entered Mr. Lintons store to make a ew small purchases. Mr. Linton was mad, and Fatch left the store and went across the treet to Schnman's store to do his trading, n picked up bis shotgun and went across the street to Bchuman's, cursing and trying to raise trouble. Mr. Schnman started to the door to ask Mr. Linton to have no fuss. Lin- on instantly opened fire on Schuman with the above results. TBR ASSAILANT ESCAPES. AA soon as Schuman fell, Linton left for tarts unknown. A warrant was sworn oat nd placed In Deputy Sheriff Blond's lands for execution. Every means will be taken to capture Linton. It s reported that one thousand dollars reward s offered for Linton's arrest, and it is thought hat the reward will be raised. Public feeling a very much against Unton. When drinking Linton Is considered dangerous. Dr. Daniels returned to Boston this evening at 4 o'clock, and reports his patient .resting very well under he circumstances. There is little hopes ot tehuman'a recovery._______ MEETS DEATH AMONG STBANGKB8. A Tonne Ohloan IMes While Koroate to Florida for His Health. MACON, Ga., March southwestern passenger train, which arrived in this city at T :30 o'clock this morning, brought with it the remains of young Noah Hollinger, ot Weaver, Ohio.
