A Bloody Duel Fought In North Caro
Una With Knives.
Charlotte, N, C, Jan. 16.-r-Qne of
the boodiest duels . ever fought- with
knives took place yesterday afternoon
eight miles from Morgan town. For
some time past Joe Harris, a young man
of some promise, suspected John Aiken
of being too intimate with hiss -wife.
Yesterday afternoon they met in a pub
lie road. Harris at once informed Aiken
that one or the other of them must die.
Aiken tried to explain saying the
reported criminal intimacy was nothing
but gossip. Harris then drew from his
pocket a long biaaeu Knile ana made a
desperate -. plunge at Aiken. Before
Harris could make a second effort Aiken
thrust his knife . up to the handle in

it is reported on good authority that
General Miles ordered the civilians to

intended to disarm the Indians if he had

Adjutant-General Corbin was asked if
General Miles had issued such an order
but he would neither admit nor deny
that such determination had been de
cided upon. So long, he claimed, as
arms were being surrendered by the
Indians there was no necessity to use
'This morning about twenty Indians
came into the agency under Little
Haws and surrendered thirty-one guns.

THE STRICKEN . NATION.
A Startling Pamphlet Sent Around
Washington, Jan. 14. A startling
looking pamphlet was sent around the
capital to-day. It was entitled "The
Stricken Nation," and recounted the
terrible fate of the country at the hands
of the malignant Britishers in the year
1893. The story is intended as an awful
warning to congress on the subject of
coast defences. The front of the book is
devoted to queer and vivid pictures of
the destruction of New York. In the
foreground a very demoralized statue of
Liberty, armless and tottering, looks
out despairingly on everv ship that
passes by. And there is a number ' of
them on the bav and river sending up
sheets of flame, while New York city
i tself presents the appearance of a volcano
in active operation. On the rear cover a
still more depressing picture represents
Washington city sinking under the
shells of our neighbors over the sea.
The capitol is very far gone. The statue
of freedom on the dome has toppled
over, while sheets of flame are issuing
from the apex. The building itself has
been turned completely around- by the
force of the bombardment. The poor
Washington monument has been broken
off like a stick of candy. If this pam
phlet does not have the desired effect our
legislators are not susceptible to fear.
Measures in the House and Senate for a
Olympia, Jan. 14. The senate passed
its first bill to-day. It was Dyer's,
authorizing nine jurors to render a ver
dict in a .civil case in the superior court.
It was bill day in the house. Seventeen
The farmers of the state are unani
mously in favor of the enforcement of
section 13 of article 12 of the constitution,
which declares all transportation com
panies to be common carriers and subject
to legislative control, and. gives all rail
roads the right of intersection and con
nection and the rapid transfer of freight.
They complain that railroad companies
are continually discriminating against
many shippers and shipping points, and
have refused to supply the demand for
cars, thus forcing down the price of grain
10 cents a bushel. The farmers' alliance
has taken the subject in hand, and every
subordinate alliance in the state will pass
a resolution urging the legislature to en
force the constitution. Petitions and
resolutions were presented to-day. from
the Spokane and Garfield county alli
ances. HER TERRIBLE PUNISHMENT.
A Pennsylvania Girl Gives Birth to a
Quartette of Illegitimate Children.
Connelsvii.le, Pa., Jan. 15. Maggie
Robeson, aged nineteen, a servant em
ployed at the Dean House, has given
birth to a quartette of boys. They are
all healthy and well developed. The
girl is the daughter of George Robeson,
a coal miner who works at Bradford for
Frick & Co. When Robeson heard
of the affair he attempted suicide.
William Gray, a neighbor, discovered
him in the top of a tree with a razor in
his hand, about to cut his. throat ; but
Gray succceeded in dissuading him from
taking his life. Robeson drove his
daughter from home and threatened her
life if she ever returned. The young
mother and her babies are now at Dun
bar, where they' are being cared for.
Miss Robeson has sworn out a warrant
before squire Colton of Dunbar for the
arrest of James Kane, whom she charges
with the paternity of her children.
Kane is an iron worker and is thought
to be in Pittsburg.
EYE DISEASE EPIDEMIC.
The Section Around, Salem Having, a
Peculiar Experience. '
Salem, Jan. 14. A peculiar and here
tofore unheard of eye epidemic is sweep
ing over this section just now, afflicting
a majority of all the people in its course.
It was first thought that only children
were afflicted, but a few days after the
first cases were noticed in children older
persons exhibited the same symptoms,
and soon their sight became impaired
and eyes afflicted. The disease always,
or nearly so, makes itself known in the
first in the left eye, the eye waters and
everything looks blurred ; soon the other
eye becomes afflicted, and the sensation
is that of a peculiar burning. The afflic
tion incapacitates all who have it from
labor, and it is worse with children.
Fortunately the duration of the ailment
is but a few days, and those who have
recovered say their eyes are unimpaired.
The doctors have no name for it, as the
disease is seemingly new and unheard-of
in this region.

THE INDIAN SITUATION.
Condition of Affairs
Washington, Jan. 16. The commis-
sioner of Indian affairs to-day received
from Mrs. Goodall, supervisor of educa
tion at Pine Ridge, a report on the bat
tle on Wounded Knee. She says her
information is chiefly from the Indian
prisoners engaged in it, and persons who
afterward visited the scene. The sur
vivors of Big Foot's band are unani
mous in the staten jsnt that the Indians
did not deliberately plan the resistance.
The demand for their arms was a sur
prise to the Indians. But a great ma
jority chose to submit quietly. Some
liad already been searched and a large
number of guns, knives and hatchets
When the searching of the persons of
the men began, the women say they too
were searched and their knives which
they alway carry for household purposes,
were taken from them. A number of
men surrendered their rifles and car
tridge belts, when one young man, de
scribed by the Indians as a good-for-nothing
young fellow fired a single shot.
This called for a volley from the troops
and the firing and confusion became
The Nebraska Government Situation.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 16. Petitions are
being circulated throughout the state
asking the legislature for a recount of the
ballots cast at the November election.
This is supported to be a scheme ot the
independents to get possession of the
ballots of Douglas county, in which
Omaha is situated for the purpose of
counting out Bovd and seating Towers
More o'f Parnell.
London, Jan. 14. Dublin advices say
that Parnell is gaining everywhere
throughout Ireland, especially in agri
cultural districts. John O'Connor, Par
nell's editor, says that the heart of Ire
land is with Parnell and that no in
fluence can prevent it from throbbing in
response to his appeal.
Parnell has arrived here fom Dublin.
The Boulogne conference, it is thought,
will soon be reopened. The Star makes
the statement that Parnell has finally
and definitely abandoned all intention
of again assuming the leadership of the
Irish parliamentary party.
Dublin, Jan. 15. The assertion is
again made that Parnell is to be sum
moned as a witness in the approaching
O'Shea probate proceedings, and that as .
consequence the disclosure is rendered
certain of full details of certain events
which were jealously guarded during the
progress of the divorce suit in London.
