Three Failures Yesterday and Three
MILLIONS OF MONEY INVOLVED
Today Closes With an Easier Feeling,
but the Uneasiness Not Allayed
Owing to Other Disastrous
New York, May 5. Special to the
Chuomclk.) Wall street today is more
violently agitated than it has been in
history. Houses of world-wide fame
and accredited responsibility are totter

six having failed since yesterday morn
ing. Tliose of yesterday were Henry
Alden & Co., who have large branch
interests in Chicago; B. L. Smith A Co.,
and Schuyler Warden. The feiarkct
closed with a decidedly panicky feeling
and this morning there was a flurry
when the Stock Exchange opened.
Three failures were announced, those of
W. L. I'atton 4 Co., S. V. White and
Henshaw & Co. of Boston.
12 m. After 11 o'clock the excitement
in the Stock Kxchange abated some
what, but fluctuations continued wide,
and frequent buying offers appeared.
Prices jumped three and four points at
a time, but any pressure to sell was im
mediately followed by a break. The
cIob was easier. One of the largest
houses on the street is said to be in
trouble and certain to fall.
The panic originated from the re
markable decline in the National Cord
age stocks, sujierinduced in part by the
recent heavy exports of gold. All stocks
have felt the drive, some of the best
railroad dropping at a remarkably rapid
gait. Northern Pacific fell to 14'..:, but

VICTIMS FOR CHICAGO.
Haved br Coolneae.
Jackbo.n, Miss., May 5. The court of
Brookhaven yesterday morning was to
be occupied with the cases of ten white
caps in jail there for shooting a negro
and burning his cabin several months
ago. The court had just opened when a
mob of 100 men rode into town and sur
rounded the court house and jail, threat
ening the life of Judge Chrisman and all
officers who dared to oppose them.
Thev would let no one leave the place,
and it was some time before the citizens
of the town knew of the disturbance.
The citizens finally went to the rescue,
and the judge, knowing what was com
ing, used a pistol and led the charge
against the mob. Tliey retreated to the
suburbs, and the town was in an uproar.
The band of outlaws awaited the attrrk
in ambush. Sheriff McNair telegraphed
Governor Stone for guns, and w ith Ad
jutant-General Henry he went to the
scene in person, carrying with him 40
Winchesters and 2,000 cartridges. Since
his arrival nothing has been heard.
Frank Peyton, court stenographer, came
up from Brookhaven at 5 p. m. He
says that when the band took possession
of the court housean important case was
being tried. Lawyers, witnesses and
auditors were horror-stricken. Judge
Chrisman was the only man who kept
his senses, and it was only through his
coolness that the attacking party was
repulsed, without the loss of a single
person. But for the timely arrival of
the militia companies from Wesson and
the city of Brookhaven, Mr. I'eyton
thinks Judge Chrisman and several
others would have been murdered.

Ciiiiicaiiua, Mexico, May 5. A cour

information of an attack made by sev

who had been sent against them. The
tight occurred near the Chihuahua state
line, west of Sahuareha, and resulted in
a number on both Bides being killed and
wounded. The Indians were well armed
and fought deperately, compelling the
government troops to beat a hasty re
treat without carrying off their killed
and badly wounded from the field. The
Indians have sent out word that no
troops or strangers will lie permitted to
enter their country, and, as the govern
ment will send a large force of soldiers

To tub Editor It has been definitely
ascertained that there is an organized
company operating through our country
who have taken a contract to furnish
the brothels and hell houses of the city
of Chicago for the season with 25,000
fresh young girls from the country. The
greatest diligence roust be practiced by
parents and the greatest possible cau
tion by our girls, for these vampires will
come to them with soft speech, winning
manners, and oftpn wearing the livery
of some benevolent organization. Very
often they will appear in the somber
hues of mourning and open their in
trigue by appeals for sympathy in their
pretended afflictions. They will not
hesitate to use force if there is any
chance for it. They will advertise ex
tensively. There will be seen "Girls
Wanted" in many of our papers, "good
pay and light work." Girls, beware!
Yes, you are wanted; 25,000 of you!
Fathers, look out ! Your daughters are
at a premium. No man wants his own
girl made a moral wreck, no matter how
many other girls he has helped to wreck.
Most men have still honor enough left
not to want to see their own flesh and
blood degraded, even though they have
not honor enough to keep from degrad
ing other people's flesh and blood.
Drugging will be extensively resorted to.
Let no girl "take a drink" even of soda
water or lemonade with strangers, or
answer in jierson an advertisement that
has not been thoroughly investigated by
some personal friend whom you know
to be trustworthy. This alarm should
be circulated through all our country

HOW HE PASSED HIS LAST DAY
After His Separated Parents Were Bade
Goodbye He Devoted His Time to
a Review of His Case.
. The Army Bill Lnit.
Bkulin, May 6. The army bill was
rejected today in the reichstag by a vote
of 210 against the bill to 1G2 in favor of
it. The rescript signed by the kaiser
dissolving the reichstag was immediately
promulgated, and the reichstag is now
dissolved. The result of the vote on the
army bill caused no surprise to the gov
ernment. Caprivl attempted yesterday
evening to rally the wavering members
to a support of the measure by offering
to reduce the peace effective even below
the number proposed in the amendment
offered by Von Huene. The offer, how
ever, did not gain a single vote. The
last attempts at compromise having
failed, Caprivi refusing to sanction the
proposition to make two years' active
service permanent, the kaiser became
impatient of further delay, and proposed
for a decision by the reichstag today.
Hence a vote was taken at once, instead
of being postponed until Monday. The
failure of the army bill makes it neces
sary for the kaiser to defer for the pres
ent his projected reforms of the higher
military commands and of the posts iu
the war office. Chancellor Caprivi has
gone to Potsdam to offer his resignation
to the kaiser.
Hurriedly convened meetings are
being held in Berlin and other populons
centers tonight. The promptness with
which "the reichstag was dissolved im
mediately after the defeat of the gov
ernment was announced has taken
everybody by surprise. Social demo
cratic leaders are alone ready for an elec
toral campaign. Beliel, Singer and
Liebnecht will leave Berlin tomorrow
and begin at once to stump the country
in behalf of the socialist candidates. In
every district in which the socialists
have a fighting chance candidates will
be nominated, and the party expects
with reason to have an increased repre
sentation in the next reichstag. The
emperor will not allow the dissolution
of the reichstag to interfere with the pro
gramme of his coming tour.

Pino Sino, N. Y., May 7. Carlyle
Harris has said farewell to hit parents
and friends and all dear to him on earth,
and now awaits the messenger of death.
The last act in the strange drama of his
life approches, and while he shows a
nervous apprehension and a full appre
ciation of the terrible thing that is to
come to him on the morrow, no signs of
breaking down are visible. He adheres to
his oft-repeated declaration of innocence,
and he passed the best part of his last
day on earth not in communication with
his spiritual advisers preparing for the
great hereafter, but with pen and ink
and paper, reviewing the past and seek
ing to place himself right with the
world he leaves. He was a trifle more
nervous than usual today, the situation
having its effect upon him, and the man
who allowed no sign of emotion to
escape him during the scenes of the
past months is at least showing that he
is human. The prison physician saw
Harris twice today, and said that while
he was a little more nervous than usual,
he could discover no signs of a breaking
down. Mrs. Harris remained at her
boarding-bouse today and did not go to
She took her last farewell of her boy
yesterday afternoon. Ihe scene was
one of the saddest which has ever been
witnessed within the grim walls, where
all is sadness. The younger brother,
Allan, also said good-bye yesterday.
This afternoon Charles D. Harris, the
father, accompanied by young Allan,
went to the prison, and father aud son
met for the first time in years. Mr.
and Mrs. Harris have lived apart for
some time. Afterward the father took
the train back to his home in Syracuse,
leaving Mrs. Harris and Allan to wait
here until all is over and they can carry
away all that is mortal of their beloved.
The last farewell to relatives having
been said, Carlyle Harris devoted his
time to writing a review of the chief
events of his life and of what has been
done by the courts, judges and governor
in his case. All preparations have been
made for tomorrow. The electrocution

constant brooding over his unrequited
flection for Captain Ida Bennett of the
Salvation army, shot and killed her yes

and then turned the weapon upon him
self with fatal effect. His last words,
pronounced after he shot her and before
hetook his own life, were: "I killed
her because I loved her, and I am as
well off dead myself."
A deafening report followed and Hos-
kins fell forward on his fucv. Four
members of the Salvation army saw the
deed, but were powerless to prevent it.
The weapon was a 44-caliber revolver
loaded with Winchester rifle cartridges.
The first shot penetrated the woman's
heart, entering below her left arm as
she stood with her left side turned to
The suicidal bullet did its work with
awful certainty. The muzzle of the
weapon touched the right temple as it

exit just above the left ear. The con

the platform. Finstad attempted to

Attracted by the sound of the shots,
a morbid, curious crowd collected at

many persons gathered about the

them. Coroner Newman had ditliculty

Spokane, May 7. The funeral ser
vices were conducted at the Methodist
Episcopal church this afternoon under
the auspices of the Salvation Army.
The streets were thronged during the
progress of the procession from the bar
racks to the church. Several local min
isters took part in the services, which,
were very impressive. Many allusions
were made to Captain Bennett's devo
tion to her work, and sobs were heard
all over the house. The crush in the
church was awful, and in the midst of a
hymn the edifice began to settle and the
walls to crack. Hundreds rushed oat
into the street, and there was almost a
panic. The church is built on an inse

progress was being made w ith the work

amount of granite in sight, and that
some blocks had been quarried out.
Derricks were in course of erection, and
boilers, engines, etc., were being got
