The Horrible Realism Prompting Jameson's Pictures, AFPIDAVITS BY AN INTEKPnETER Th� Detaila of the story nf Cnniilballmn Beretofoi'o Mentioned in � Oeneral . Way-Kurttelot'H Tnlinniaujty Untloubt' edly the Cause of ITi.s Death. KNIGHTS Oir IiABOn. Main street, LeMars, Iowa. TjONDon, Nov. 17.-The Times publishes tlie full text of tlio affidavit made by Assad. J?aiTan, the Syrian interpreter, in regard to the events befalling Stanley's rear gaa.rd. It explaiii(yl that he was obliged in London to contradict his previous statements for certain reasons, especially because the committee did not desire that he should re-! veal the disgraceful story. Assad d^y scribed how Maj. JBarttelot, after Stanley had left Yam Buya, decided on account of the scarcity of food to employ the armed Soudanese to attack neighboring villages, but found them deserted. Regarding the JaujMon affair at Ribaicaba, .the afltidavit states that Jameson expressed to Tippo Tib's interpreter his curiosity to witness cannibalism. After some consultation Jameson purchased a slave girl aged 10 years, for whom he paid six handkerchiefs. Jameson's servant explained to tlie cannibals that the girl was a present from a white man, who J>'n,ii-ef1 to See Her Eaten. The girl was tied to a tree while the natives sharpened, their knives. Then one of them stabbed the girl twice in the abdomen. She had made no outcry, but knew what was happening, and looked to the right and left seeking help. When stabbed she fell dead. The natives cut the body to pieces, Roihe taking the arms, others the legs, breast and othei; portions and carried them to their tents. Others took the entrails to the river and washed them before eating them. Jameson in the meantime was making rough sketches. Then Assad and the other witness re^ turned to the chief's house, and Jameson went to his own tent and finished the sketches in water colors. There were six sketches, very neatly done. The first represented the girl led to the tree; the second showed the stabbing scene, with the blood gushing out; the third depicted the dissection of the body; in the fourth a man was shown with a leg in one hand and a knife in the other; the fifth represented a man with a native axe in one hand and the head and the breast in the other; the sixtli showed A Man with the Kntrailw. . Assat relates how Barttelot wasTn the habit of daily ordering men to receive from twenty-five to one hundred lashes for various offenses. He describes the arrival of and negotiations with Tippoo Tib. There were numerous cases of thefts-of food. The guilty perso.ns were punished by a hundred or more lashes, their flesh being badly lacerated. In one case liarttelot ordered the whipping stopped, but resnmed it after a few days and inflicted 150 more lashes. This man was then compelled- to walk ten hours daily in � the snn, while heavily chained. He continued this for two months, when the wounds became put! id and were infested with m.aggots. The major tnen relieved the man from duty for a week and Bonny gave him medi'rine, but the man was' at once ordered to re.sume the march. He managed to escape, but was recaptured four days later, a reward having been offered, and was shot despite Jameson's protest. Assad relates many instances of - Itarttelot'g Violence and Crnelty. The Times also publishes a further statement by Bonny to the effect that in his opinion the cannibalism incident wfVi the cause-of the death of both Jameson and Barttelot. Assad having told the Congo authorities of the affair, they were indi-Jinant and excited, and forced Assad to ma'io his affidavit, which was sent to Europe. Barttelot. beonming aware of this, took full notes in his diary, and when he arrived at the village where he was shot he was in a terrible state of excitement and anger, fearing that the cannibalism incident would become known in Europe and that he would lose his commission. He said: "When it becomes known that one of onr men did 'this awful thing I shall be blamed." Bonny adds: "Violent as the major had been before, he never soutterly lost control of himself as now* I ascribe his violence which led tc his death to this case. I never doubted that he.was becoming insane througbvprivations, anxieties and other causes, but - vTheOannlbalUm Incident was nnqnestionably the last straw." Bonny relates , fact r of Jameson's procuring^thehead of,^a negro. He Bays: "It was a man with whom we were well acquainted. He had' been shot by an Arab.: .The head was salted down and sent to London,-where it was stuffed by Eowiand, Ward &' Go. Once while I was visiting; Mrs. Jameson she showed me this curiosity and asked if I recognized it. I replied: 'Yes, I have shaken^his hand often.'" She said that it sometimes emitted a �disagreeable odor and shev inquired the: reason, i replied: "You have a human barometer here. The salt was not properly eliminated ^romlhe skin in stn^ng; and al: damp ; atmosphere af^ fectsit." Bonny says that Mr. Ward IrQfaaesto.say anything about:rthe:stuf-^ fing'pf the head. , � aNo Speolar Hea�ion.''?[v: ml m ,.. ., R S. ^ Don^t fail to see|9i3^g^||^t;JPa ^ %sian Window Attraction; sometiiingiiCeW^^ PJP^^^;>r,the n^t ye^;^^ A Committee ReoommenU� the: Federation of All I^ahor OrgiiniKatlonH. Denver, Col. Nov. 19.-Thp Knights of Labor will probably adjourn to-day. The question of organizing 'fi new political party will be settled and a place of holding their next annual' assembly be chosun. A geiiornl execiitive board consisting of Messrs. Wright, Devlin, Holland and Davis considered the question of strikes, and after a brief di^-cnssion agreed to let the clause in the constitution relating to this feubject remain unchanged. The committee on the good of the order made their report, which was accepted. Tliey recommended a federation of all labor organizations, the appointmeijt of a committee to attend the next annual convention of the Farmery' Alpance, supported the recommendation of Mr. Powtlerly for the prevention of needless strikes, and recommended ihe appointment of a committee to britjg about the forfeiture of the New Yuvk Central railroa-fl to the state. � ..','| i-' T.

OCALA, Fla., Nov. 20.-There was a l^pitthed battle in the little town of R�(.Uiiclt, fifteen miles north of here. AVjout 4 o'clock George B. Sanders, a white man, crazed with whisky, entered E. P. Thagard's store,,and. after flourishing his revolver around for a time, shot at Ned Koux, one of the clerks. Then T. R. Williatus and John Friday, the latter also a; clerk, seized Sanders, and'after a struggle with the fiend disarmed him. A negro who came up while this scuffle was taking place, and not understSnding the nature of it, rushed acr&S.: the street to George Sanders' storeand told his brother Bob that two iuen weace trying to kill George. Then Bob's teta|)er was up. and, seizing his gun, he rushed over into Thagard's store and began firing right and left promiscuonsly. Two shots struck Williams, who fell mortally wounded; Another shot hit a negro boy and he dropped, dead. Still another hit Friday, the clerk, but had no .serious effect. The last shot struck a negro woman wh;) had come in from the rear to make a purchase and didn't knovv what was going on. Her wound is not serious. Meanwhile George Sanders rushed out of the store to avoid the Hying bullets, but as he did so some unknown party sent a charge of buckshot into his head and face,with no serious effect, however. Then Bob, the man with tlie gun- started to come out, too, but as he einerged into the open air a charge of; forty-two bucic-shot met him from the side, taking effect in his hip, abdoinen and thighs, and he fell to the earth;,,and will probably die. Williams lingered until 1 o'clock, when he died iu great agony. The O'Shua iMyoro^.Case. LoNiJONr-Nov-i-ia^TSe. hearing, of the evidence for the prosecution m the O'Shea divorce case was resumed. Two servants testified to having discovered Parnell and Mrs. * Q'Shea locked up in a room together, and on several occasions found them alone together after  midnight. Sir Edward Clark then., announced that the proseciition had adduced sufficient evidence to demonstrate the innocence of his client, and the culpability of respondent and corespondont. He announced the case for the prosecution closed. Delense will still be unrepresented. The case was then given to the-jnry. Very shortly after the jury rendered a verdict. It finds the respondent, Mrs. O.Shea, guilty of adul-tary as allesed, and dismissed the counter chacge of jonnivaiice in tlie crime, made by Mrs.O'ahea against her husband.

GmcAOO, Nov. 18.-Officers at the army headquarters here are concerned over the threatened Indian outlireak in the northwest. Gen. Miles was at his desk all day and until late at night, consulting, advising and preparing for action. Col. Henry C. Corbin, who accompanied Gen. Miles to St. Louis to meet the secretary of war, and who is in full possession of all the facts regarding the Indian trouble, says: "An Indian uprising is not probable, but the situation is certainly threatening. The only obstacle in the way of a war is the weather, for the Indians will hesitate, if they do not refuse to take the war path in a time of storms and cold. A good blizzard in North Dakota would be a godsend. But if war does break out it will be terrible beyond description. Before, we have always had the help of one tribe in quelling disturbances in another. But now the Sioux, Cheyeunes. Crows and Arapahoes are banded in a common cause. They are well armed and their Christ promises them that every Indian who shall fall in a war against the white m�n shall be raised on that day, soon to come, when the earth shall open and engulf the whites, leaving it to be occupied by God's chosen people, the savages. It will be a religioua war-one of the most romantic and terrible iu the history of the world." On tho Warpnth. Minneapolis, Nov. 18.-A Grand Forks, N. D., special says Adjt. Gen.

Vjcksburg, Miss., Nov. ID.-News reached here of a serious riot at Gloss Crossing, a railroad station on the Mississippi Valley railroad, ten miles south of this city. A large party of negroes were gambling on the platform of the railroad depot at that hour, and Deputy Sheriff Simreoll started there to arrest them or drive them away, as a general quarrel was arising among them. Smith Simmons, colored, drew a revolver and defied the officer, who, being set upon by the entire party, ten or tv/elve strong, retreated toward Adler's store, followed by them. Upon nearing the store, Simmons fired at Simreoll's head, but Adler threw up his arm and the ball missed its aim. Simreoll then fured several shots at the mob, emptying his revolver, and was retreating to his room when a shot from the mob pierced his left side, causing a severe flesh wound. Firing the'i became general, the mob discharging forty or more shots, and in the melee Simmons, the ring leader, was shot through the left lung and mortally wounded. After the heavy firing was over Richard Bailey, colored, fired several shots through the front window of a store and slightly wounded a negro. He was arrested and placed in jail. Tlie affray is being investigated and other arrests will follow. Simmons was � brought to the hospital and is not expected .to live. Killed His Stop-Fathor. Memphis.
