A double murder and suicide occurred at the Casino theatre at half past two this morning. Charles Elliott a faro dealer, had been occnp)-ing the box nearest the stage orx the right side for about an hur when he was seen to lean forward frxpi the box and fire three shots at the per formers on the stage. He then placed the muzzle of his revolver in his mouth, fired again, the bullet going through the top of his head. Three of the shots fired at the stage entered the left breast of Mable DeBabian. a variety actress, ' an other bullet entered the back of Carrie Smith just above the left hip, inflicting a dangerous wound, which may prove fatal. Before the doctor arrived Mabel DeBabian had died. Mabel DeBabian was about twenty- three or twenty-four years of age and quite pretty. She was a general favorite with her associates. . In the pockets of the dead man was found a number of cartridges and the following note : - "Lulu Dur'and : I have wanted to carry out my purposes but haven't had a favorable chance yet. It was an old score but I had to "fool with you. I trust to luck and a good shot to accom plish my purpose. (Signed) Chab. Elliott." The fact that Lulu Durand was on'the stage at the time of the shooting makes clear the fact that she was one whom the shooting was at. Carrie Smith, who was shot in the back, was taken to the Sacred Heart hospital. At last accounts she was somewhat improved. Lulu Durand stated that she believed that Elliott intended to shoot at her but being somewhat behind the other girls she escaped. WON'T WANT AMERICAN ENGINES. An Agent of the Baldwin Locomotive Works Meets With a Sad Accident. New York, March 27. A corres pondent at Rio Janeiro sends an ac count of a fatal accident on the railway running from San Francisco south.: An agent for the Baldwin Locomotive works of Philadelphia was showing the officials of the road a new engine. For the pur pose of making a practical test, the agent witn the manager of the road, master mechanic, chief clerk, engineer and two firemen, boarded the locomo tive and tender. After proceeding a short distance the locomotive left the track and rolled down the bank seventy five feet high, badly injuring the agent and killing the others. The agent was arrested and thrown in to a vile dungeon, outside of which a frantic mob howled for his life. After enduring much torture, diplomatic cor respondence finally brought about his release with half-hearted apologies. . Receiver's Report. Chicago, March 27. A special from Sioux City, Iowa, says: "Receivers of the Wyoming Pacific Improvement Co., and the Nebraska and Western railroad have issued their first official statement of the affairs of the Pacific line of rail way. It shows that the property is still owned by the Manhattan Trust Co., of New York, and that holders of unse cured claims, of which about $250,000 is outstanding, will probably lose them. The Sioux City people who have sub scribed about $300,000 will have to buy the Manhattan" company out or lose their money. " Will Honor the State Seal if not the - Governor. Providence, B.

Yester day morning a planter, claiming to be long to one ot tne tirst lam i lies oi Louis iana, boarded a train on the Vallev rail way at Pulaski, near the Rtate line. He said that he was looking for a family of negroes who bad left his plantation for uiuanoma, ana tnat ne intended to bring "the d d black rascals back or kill them in trying to do so. When the train reached Parkdale, a well-dressed negro man, accompanied by his wife and three children, boarded the train. The planter told the negro that he was under con tract to work for him during the year, and that unless he returned at once to the plantation he would kill him. The negro replied that this was a free coun try, and that he was going to Oklahoma. With an oath the planter drew his re volver and shot the negro through the head, killing him instantly. The planter then walked out of the train, and after assuring the many spectators present on the platform that that was the only way to break up "the d d negro stampede to Oklahoma." returned to his home in Louisiana. The name of the planter is not known. HAKKISON ANXIOrS. And Will Visit the Coast if Public Busi ness Will Permit Him Doing So. San Francisco, March 25. Congress man Morrow, who has just returned from Washington, was asked today if he thought President Harrison would visit California. Well, I had a talk with President Har rison about visiting this coast, and he stated that he was very anxious to make the trip. He will, "if possible, come here some time in the spring, that is, if his public offices will permit him to leave Washington. There are a great many questions requiring the presence of the president and the members of the cabinet in Washington, and if it should appear that matters cannot be post poned the president will be compelled to remain in Washington. If he comes out here. he will start between April 5th and 15th and will travel on the southern route and on the way will stop at San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and other points of interest. He will also visit tne Yosemite valley on his way to this city. He will remain here a" few days arid will leave by the Northern route, and will probably visit the states of Oregon and Washington. WHAT HAY8 .TIM HALLt FitsHimmons Is Beady to Fight for Astoria's Purse. Astoria, March 25. There is con siderable excitement among the local sports today over the prospects of Hall and Fitzsimmons fighting here. The matter was brought up as a jest, but has developed into a serious proposition, which may result in something definite. John Grant, president of the local club, today received the following reply to his telegram to Chicago, offering a pnrse of $17,1100 for tne fight : "Handed telegram to Fitzsimmons' backer. He accepts.- Does Hall? . I hold $2500 forfeit for Fitzsimmons. What will you do?" A number of prominent members of the club began an active canvass of the city today and in a very short time suc ceeded in raising a trine over $10,000. They are in a fair way to raise the bal ance of the sum. Grant will go to Port land iriday to see Hall, who will, be in that city that day. THE CHURCH IN POLITICS. The Spirit of the Bennett Law Agita tion in Wisconsin Will Not Down. St. Paul, Minn., March 25. The religious feeling in politics has not died out yet in Wisconsin. The spirit of the Bennett law agitation will not down. In the senate at Madison today a bill came up for consideration, which pro vides that all officers authorized to com mit dependent children to industrial school, asylums or other institutions for care of detendent children, shall before commitment inquire into the religious belief of such children, and take such belief into consideration in selecting the institution to which the child is sent. The bill was introduced at the instiga tion of the Roman Catholics of Milwau kee, and the measure met with consid erable opposition. A long debate was precipitated, in which Senator Joiner led the opposition in a two hours' speech. He endeavored to show the relation be tween church and state. The speech created great excitement, and the bill was laid over. TERRIBLE SUFFERING. Hardships of the Crew of the Bark Humboldt. London, March 25. The steamer Don has landed at Plymouth the crew of the German bark Humboldt, who, when rescued, had suffered terrible hardships and were in a dying condition. The Humboldt sailed from Altata, Mexico, on the Gulf of California, in September last, bound for Falmouth. On the voy age the crew were stricken with scurvy, and became so weak they were almost insensible. Their teeth were loosened and their skins became swollen and and livid. "When spoken by the Don, the Humboldt was in disabled condition and sinking. All her boats had been smashed. Two of the crew were already dead. The survivors were so exhausted they had to be hoisted aboard the Don. They had been ill for three months. Famell'a Audiences Small. . London, March .- 25. Mr. Parnell's audiences today were small and not at all enthusiastic. It is evident that the church is gaining ground in its campaign against him. The withdrawal of the curates from active work in his behalf haa greatly weakened his 'cause. THE SUGAR TKirST. An Attempt to Cheat the Government Out of 2 1-9 Cents a Pound. New York, March 24. The sugar trust, in anticipation of a heavy loss on a large amount of sugar held by the con cern April 1, is getting in some fine work to protect themselves, as outlined by a well-informed sugar man. The move seems to be nothing short of a plan to make the government pay over to the trust more than enough to cover the loss in selling these goods at the April de cline. The law provides for a drawback -of 23 cents per pound on export sugars, and the same drawback is precisely what they are believed to be after. The popular opinion is that the sugar will be sent abroad in order to secure the dajw back and then be brought back and sold at April prices. It Has Caused a Sensation. i New- York, March 25.

The Sil-er Purchases. Washington, March 27. One hun dred and fifteen thousand ounces of sil ver were purchased yesterday at prices ranging from 998.10 to 998.26. My advice to workingmen is this : If you want power in this country; if you want to make yourself felt ; if you do not want your children to wait long years before they have the bread on the table they ought to have ; the leisure in their lives they ought to have ; the op portunities in life they ought to have; if -you don't want to wait yourselves, write on your banner so that every political trimmer can read it, so that every poli tician no matter how short sighted he may be, can read it : "We never forget." If you launch the arrow of sarcasm at , labor,, we never forget ! If there is a division in congress and yon throw your vote in the wrong scale we never forget ! You may go down on your knees and say: "I am sorry I did the act!" And we will say : "It will avail you in heaven but this side of the grave never I" So that a man in taking up the labor ques tion will know he is dealing with a hair trigger pistol and will say : "I am to be true to justice and to man, otherwise I am a dead duck." Wendell Phillips.
