Nxw York, Sept. 8. A Washington
special to the Sun says : The bolt of
sugar planters and others interested in
sugar is likely to caise many political
complications and revolutions in Louis
iana, and no one can foretell the future.
Each day it becomes more and more
evident that tbe break is an irremedia
ble one and that the bolters have carried
with them nearly all the sugar interests
of tbe state. Here and there a promi
nent planter announces bis intention to
stick by the national democracy. State
Senator Dudley Avery stopped the re
volt in Iberia parish, and State Senator
Shaeffer, of Terre Bonne, declares that
be will remain a democratic represents
tive. Dymond of Plaquemines refuses
to go over to tbe republican camp, but
will remain a protection democrat.
Congressman Andrew Price, it is said by
bis friends, will remain with tbe demo
crats and will probably be the democratic
candidate iu tbe third district against
tbe candidate of new republicans. He
is the strongest man they can put up
With these exceptions nearly all tbe
prominent planters and other sugar men
have gone over, apparently forever, to
tbe republicans. They control probably
60,000 votes which have usually been
given to the democratic ticket, and if
they can get these votes counted they
will carry three congressional districts
and render the state very close, if not
republican, on the presidential contest.
Great interest is ielt in tbe attitude of
Governor Foster. . Both be and Senator
Caffery come from 6t. Mary, tbe largest
sugar parish in Louisiana, which Beems
to have gone heartily into this new re
publican movement. It Is well under
stood that, although some of tbe bolters
contributed largely to the election of
Governor Foster, he will take a strong
position against the movement. It is
urged by the stalwarts that he ought to
remove from office all his appointees who
have become republicans this week, as
it is impossible, they say, to bea national
republican and state democrat at tbe
same time. Tbe bolters expect to lie re
moved, but say that in Ascension parish,
for instance, which usually gives 4000
democratic majority, it will be impossi
ble for the governor to find enough men
of standing clinging to the national
democratic party to fill the offices. The
leading paper here opposes tbe new
movement and has denounced it as tbe
greatest political folly ever committed.
What caused the bolt was the passage of
tbe free sugar bill in the house, and the
refusal to pay tbe due and earned
bounty. Tbe old-time republicans are
a great deal staggered at their sudden
accession of strength. The leaders ap
pear to welcome it, but it is difficult to
say just how the party organization will
be retained.
Admiral Ting Degraded for Cowardice
and Incapacity.
SiiANtiiiAi, Sept. 8. It is reported
that Admiral Ting, commander of the
Pei Yang squadron, has been degraded
for cowardice and incapacity, and that
ho has been deprived of the peacock
feather and ordered to leave the fleet
and take a shore command. The native
papers say that Li Hung Chang is work
ing to procure the mediation of England
and Kussia in the war with Japan. The
emperor and the dowager empress are,
it is said, furious at the suggestion, and
refuse to listen to it. The country
around Peking is flooded with orders,
given by thegovernment, not to attempt
to lower the waters on the Plane. This
is in order to prevent a Japanese ad
vance. Advices from New Chwang,
China, say that September 1st the
British steamer Fetung, which was
taking on the cargo for Japan, was or
dered to stop the work of loading by the
authorities. September 2nd twelve
Japanese women and the Japanese
counsel went on the vessel In distress.
All the hoiiBes of tbe women had been
destroyed and they had been robbed
and maltreated by the Chinese soldiers.
The women had been rescued and hid
den by Europeans until they could be
sent aboard the vessel. They were
taken to the vessel two at time in dis
guise. The steamer was soon surround
ed by boats full of Chinese, seeking to
capture the refugees. Two soldiers act
ually boarded the vessel, but were
quickly ejected. No further attempt to
board her was made. On the afternoon
of tbe 2nd a military official came to tbe
steamer and advised thut she leave port
the same night, otherwise the authori
ties might be unable to prevent tronble.
Word has not been received of the ar
rival of tbe steamer at Kobe, Japan.
Mr. O'Connor, the British minister, has

Count of Tarla Dead.
London, Sept. 8. The Compte de
Paris died at 9 o'clock this morning at
the Stowc house. During the night tbe
count several times appeared to have
paused away, so feeble was his pulse.
Dr. Pecomier had the most extreme
difficulty frequently in feeling the light
beats of the heart, and the weakness of
the distinguished sufferer daring the
last hours of Kiokness was so great he
was unable to Epeak, although he suc
ceeded in making it appear that he de
Bired to utter a few more words of fare
vell to those around. The family and
old servants were all in attendance, and
to each one the bead of the royal house
of France feebly said a few additional
kind words of farewell, after which the
family knelt at the bedside and offered
np hearfelt prayers for the dying. He
rarely, however referred to his approach
ing death, always trying to soothe the
sorrow of those around him. Now and
then a deep sigh would escape from the
sufferer, and hff vrould matter a phrase,
oft repeated during the past, week, "Ceat
bien long," equivalent to saying he was
very weary of waiting for death.
Le Gaulois says a council of ministers
will be held to discuss the Question of
permitting the interment of tbe Count
of Paris at Dreux, should tbe family re
quest it.

Paris, Sept. 10. The disaster to the
Paris and Cologne express train at Apili,
between Noyon and Chauny, yesterday,
was more serious than at first supposed.
The first estimates placed the number
of persons killed at 10, with 20 injured.
Twelve bodies have already been taken
from the wreck. The accident was due
to the slow shunting of a freight train at
Apilli. The engineer of the express saw
the cars on the line and reversed the en
gine. The shock of the collision was
borne by three front cars. As soon as
the accident became known a priest and
others hurried to the railroad station,
and did everything to assist the dying
and injured. The report that the station
master at Apilli had committed suicide
by jumping in front of the express train
when he saw tbe collision was inevitable,
tarns out incorrect. The station master
ran along the track to signal tbe express
and the freight train, and was caught
between the two trains and killed. It
seems certain there were Americans
among the killed or injured.
Plot For a Dime Morel.
Paris, Sept. 10. The judicial authori
ties of St. Quentin are at present en
gaged in investigating a most extraordi
nary affair. In 1873 a foreigner was
found lying in the street with a ballet
wound in his head and was brought to
the hospital, where be stated that he
had been a cashier in a New York bank,
and had absconded with $60,000. Be
lieving that the Paris police were on his
track, he bad taken tbe train to Hergnier,
and finally in despair, he had attempted
to take bis own life. Next day fever set
in, and he died shortly afterward. His
clothes, which were much the worse
for wear, were destroyed, but one of the
nurses saved the upper leathers of his
boots, which were in fairly good condi
tion. For 21 years they lay in a cupboard
where they were found by a man named
Mennechet, employed in the hospital,
who asked leave to take them. It was
granted, and he carried them off, little
imagining that he had secured a valu
able prize, but such was the case. They
were lined with papers which proved to
be scrip, and Mennechet, who is a mili
tant socialist, commissioned one of his
political friends to negotiate the bonds
in Loudon. The man recently returned
witli the money, and the authorities,
having got wind ot the matter, are seek
ing to discover what has become of it.
A Bucceaaful tturglary.
Clarion, Pa., Sept. 10. F. W. Collner
& Co., general storekeepers at St. Peters
burg, this county, were robbed Saturday
of f70,000 in bonds, notes and ca?h.
Tbe theft was kept secret, in hope of
catching tbe guilty persons disposing of
some of tbe papers. Saturday night the
store was closed at 10 o'clock. Four
members of the firm, the bookkeeper
and clerk finished balancing the books,
counted the cash, and after putting the
latter into tin boxees locked the store
and went across the street. In ten min
utes they returned to the store door,
which they had locked securely. It was
standing wide open, and the tin boxes
containing bonds for friO.OOO, checks and
promissory notes for $5,000 and over in
cash were gone. A search of the
premises showed that some one had
been concealed in the store and as soon
as the force had left grabbed the boxes
and followed, unlocking the door from
the inside.

tween Mrs. Fisher and her 13-year-old

and her daughter sat motionless for
several seconds, when the little girl got

said, "Mamma, I beard that let us go

that she has spoken since an attack of
scarlet fever left her deaf and speechless.
