St Petersburg, Nov. II. A horrible
story of cannibalism comes from Bessar
abia. A woman named Akkerman, a
giantess in stature and strength, ap
plied for shelter at the house of a peas
ant woman named Yooreski Sariera.
They became friendly and the peasant
went out to get a fresh supply of vodka
when one lot gave out. 'In her absence
Akkerman killed the peasant's . baby,
sucked its blood and. devoured part of
its body.. As the peasant re-entered the
but, she saw Akkerman trying to kill
her three-year-old girl. The mother
tried to defend her offspring, but the
giantess thrust her aside and killed the
little girl with a bludgeon. The peas
ant, left a raving maniac, tried to kill
herself. The neighbors, after a desper
ate struggle, in which several were
hurt, managed to overcome the giantess,
and .tied her w'th ropes. ' On the way to
jail the populace tried to lynch her, but
sue was nnauy landed in tne lock-up.
A Bloody Election Fight.
Johnson City, Tenn., Nov. 11. News
reaches here of the. bloodiest election
fight on record at the polls at Big Rock
creek, Mitchell county, N. C, between
republican factions. Geo. K. Pritchard,
republican nominee for sheriff, was op
posed by Isaac McKenney, independent
republican, who was defeated for' the
nomination by a small majority. The
canvass was very bitter. The fight was
precipitated by one of McKenney's ad
herents knocking down his opponent.
Immediately the whole crowd of 50 took
sides, and a desperate battle ensued.
Stones, knives, and pistole were used
with terrible effect. Twenty were
wounded, of whom - four will die. The
whole population is in arms, and more
bloodshed is expected.
A Sea Lion in Lake Michigan.
Milwaukee, Wis., .Nov. 11. A sea
lion made its appearan.ee in the Mil
waukee drydock company's slip, where
the sectional docks are moored, at 7
o'clock this morning. When first notic
ed it was swimming around in the slip
and making the barking noise peculiar
to its kind.- After a time it swam off to
ward the rolling mills. The news of the
strange visitors appearance spread rapid'
ly. The men in the big shipyards drop
ped their tools and hastened to the spot.
Sailors jumped from their craft and hur
ried in pursuit. They were followed .by
longshoremen and a number of laborers,
the latter armed with guns.. Several
shots were fired, but so far as known
none took effect. At the rolling mill
dock' it was said that nothing had been
seen of the critter, and it is supposed it
had put out into the lake. . The sea lion
is undoubtedly the one that escaped a
few months ago from Lincoln Park,
Chicago. . Itis said that it was seen at
Luddington, Mich., more than 100 miles
northwest of Milwaukee, a few days ago.
Cannot Go . to War.
London, Nov. 11. A rumor nas reach
ed here from New York that the Argen
tine republic and Peru were combining
to make war- upon Chili. In response
to an inquiry at the Argentine legation
the inquirer was informed that the
rumor was absurd. . In city circles the re
port is dismissed as utterly improbable.
Peru has not a cent with which to buy
war- material. English bondholders
hold the railways, guano deposits mines
and state lands for 66 years, under a
contract ratified in 1890. . . Argentine is

The Grain Crop.
The Review says a conservative esti
mate places this season's grain crop in
tnePalouse at over 10,000,000 bushels
of . wheat and from 600,000 to 800,000
bushels of barley. For weeks long lines
of grain-loaded wagons have waited at
various stations their turn to contribute
to the rapidly growing ' mountains of
wheat heaped up beside the already full
elevators and warehouses. " The abund
ant yield of the past two seasons placed
farmers in such a condition financially
that but few were forced to sell their en
tire crop this year, and as prices hare
been generally low those who could af
ford to do so have retained the greater
part of their grain. Notwithstanding
this, wheat is arriving at Tacoma, over
the Northern Pacific, at the rate of be
tween 100 and 125 carloads daily, and
only the greatest activity on the part of
elevator and warehousemen - prevents a
blockade. Over the Union Pacific grain
is reaching Portland in equally large
quantities,-24 'freight trains being , re
ported recently in one -day bound for
that city. Throughout Umatilla county
and the remainder of Eastern Oregon
more wheat is being sold than in eastern
Washington. This is due to the fact
that farmers gennerally in that section
are not so well-to-do as are their north
ern neighbors, and can not afford to hold
for higher prices. Undoubtedly much
of the grain -now being shipped from
eastern Washington is sold because of va
lack of proper facilities. Few farmers
have barns or graneries" large enough to
hold - the produce of their fields for a
single season, and these, when obliged
to store their wheat on. open platforms,
naturally prefer to sell to running the
risk of damage by storms.
. The alliance warehouses have proved
a relief to many farmers, and yet, as
there are but 35 of these throughout the
Inland Empire, their benefits are neces
sarily limited. Along the snake river,
from Lewiston down, the huge piles of
grain are being reduced at tne rate of
from 200 ;o 300 tonB per day and al
though extra boats have been running
on the river for weeks, there yet remain
thousands of bushels of wheat piled on
the banks of that stream enough, in all
probability, to keep, the extra . steam
boats busy until the river runs too low
for navigation. '
The acreage sown in barley during the
past season was greater than ever before,
and will be largely increased again this
year, it having proved in certain sec
tions the most advantageous crop that
can be raised. Everywhere plowing and
seeding have been greatly retarded by a
lack of raiirbut as soon as the ground is
in proper condition this 'work will be
pushed, and preparations for reaping
the greatest harvest ' next season ever
known in the northwest- will be com
pleted. The Prize is Drawn.
Review. ; Republicans generally man
ifest a spirit of prompt acquiescence in
the popular will, aa reflected in the
election of a democratic president and
congress.' The country has decided that
it desires a' radical change of policy, at
a time when it was never more prosper
ouB, and it is willing to entrust the dem
ocratic party with the work. No one on
earth knows what fruits this will bring.
It may bring absolute free trade on the
lines laid down by the Mills bill. The
logic of the situation is decidedly with
the free traders. They can say, with
reason and force, that the country re
jected the Mills idea in 1888, that the
Morrison idea has long been under the
ground, and that since the platform for
1892 calls for free trade in principle,
and the democracy swept the country
with that plank, the country should
have free trade.- On 'the other hand,
Mr. Cleveland has said that free trade is
an impossible specter, and in his letter
of acceptance has promised to exercise
it. . Meanwhile the country will await
with considerable interest democratic
action which will indicate the nature of
the prize it has drawn from the political

Chicago, Nov. 11. The rumor in
army circles that General Miles , has
asked the war department to let him -
exchange places with General Howard
because of the criticism by the - press of
Chicago on hi? management of the mil
itary parades in connection with the
ball and dedicatory ceremonies of the
world's fair, is denied by that Indian
fighter. "I have made no application .
to the department to be removed from
Chicago," said the general. "Rumors
are easily started, and they grow rapidly
on their travels. I have been severely
criticised. Chicago has proved to be an
unhealthy place for major-generals,"
continued General Miles, significantly ;
then, after waiting a moment to give the
innuendo force, he went on: "General
Sheridan, you know, . contracted here
the disease which eventually ended his
life. Then there were General Terry
and General Crook, who. died while in
command of the division."
Good Chance for a Row. " :
Paris, Nov. 11. Many - accusations
have been made teat the German agents
in Dahomey have furnished King
Behanzin ' with quick-firing " rifles.
These have been denied by the Ger
mans, who aesert if Behanzin had such
weapons he procured them from the
British. The latter assertions are borne
out by a capture juet made off the coast .
of Dahomey. The Brandon,' a French
dispatch boat, cruising off the coast, sur
prised the British steamer John Holly,
with a cargo of Winchester rifles and
ammunition, beyond all doubt intended
for the Dahomeyan army. The vessel
was seized and the cargo confiscated.
The matter will undoubtedly be made

A Mysterious Murder.
San Jose, Cal., Nov. 11. Henry
Planz, aged 25, recently appointed man
ager of the Fredericksburg brewery, was
found this morning hanging to a tree on
Julian street, near Guadalupe bridge..
His hands were tied behind his back and
his feet tied together and a handkerchief
over his mouth. The ground near the
tree and for a distance of thirty feet
showed evidence of a struggle. The af
fair thus far is shrouded in mystery. It
is not known what could have been the
motive of any one to get bim out of the
way. A diamond ring was found on his
finger and robbery is not thought to fur? .
nisb the motive.
