Beck, aged 50, . a former law partner of
Congressman Bynum, was found dead

While the suggestion of murder has been
made, his friends think he has com
'The coroner decided Beck was mur
dered. He was found on a bed, un
dressed, with a ghastly wound behind
his left ear. The shutter bad been sawed
off eo 83 to admit an arm, and blood
was found in the yard. Bloody tracks

was in the drawer.
One Shot, Three Hanged. -
Vicksbdkg, Miss., ' April 2" Four
negroes have already paid the penalty
for the brutal assassination of Manager
Boyce, of the Baunn plantation, in
Madison parish,- .Saturday. One was
shot Sunday. During the night a mob
gathered at the jail at Tallahua and
forced open the door. Sam Slaughter,
Tom Claxton and Dave Hawkins were
led out and banged to a balustrade of
the court house. Their bodies were
hanging there this morning. Another
of the Claxtons and four of his pals are
still in the swamp. The river and all
avenues of escape,-are closely guarded,
and the ultimate capture of the five men
is regarded as only a question of time.
It eeems certain they will be lynched.
Two Innocents Killed.
Tuskogee, Ala., April 24. Mrs.
George Sinclair left her home for a short
visit, and when she returned she found
her two little girls, aged 2 and C years,
missing. A search resulted, today in the
discovery of their dead bodies in the
woods near the house with their heads
battered in. The little ones had wan
dered from the house and . been, mur
dered. In a mill pond near by was found
the body of Horace Johnson, an . insane
negro, who, it is supposed, murdered the
little ones and then jumped into the
pond and drowned himself-

ISutte Industrials Outwit the Northern
- : Pacific.
St. Paul, April 24. The Coxeyites
broke into the Northern Pacific round
house last'night, seized an engine and
train and started' East at 40 miles an
hour. There are between 400 and 500
men in this army. They have been
camped at Butte, Mont., several days.
While the leaders were trying to arrange
for transportation the men concluded
that if they wanted a train they must
take it. At midnight they reached Boze
nian, where they stopped till the break
of day, intending to resume their jour
neyatonce. Northern Pacific officials
say there is nothing to stop them until
near Livingston, where a washout- will
cause some delay.
The army were stopped at Livingston
by a cave-in in a tunnel.

' The Strike at ConnellsvUle. '
Cokxellsville, Pa., April 24. The
prediction of the labor leaders that the
entire region will be out in a day or two
is being fulfilled. Men at a dozen
works laid down their tools today, while
at many other plants part of the men
went out and others will follow to
morrow. They, claim the whole region
will be out in a day or two. No violence

To Reduce the Wool Rates.
Washington, April 24. Power today
introduced an amendment in the senate
to the tariff bill, re-enacting the provis
ions of the McKinley law as they apply
to: wool, except that the rates are
changed. The amendment approves of
a duty of 6 cents per pound on wool of
the first-class, 8 cents on the second,
fourth, and third-class worth 9 cents,
and 5 cents on third-class, excepting 9
cents of value. This is a reduction of
about one-third from .the McKinley bill,
and Power says his reasons for reducing
the rates are that he hopes to secure
democratic support for his amendment.'
WHERE THEY ARK.
Te Different Sections of the Coxey
- Commonweal Army.
Kelley's army, now the largest march
ing on to Washington, reached Walnut,
la., yesterday morning. There were 23
companies and 953 men. Immediately
after they arrived a row, developed into
real mutiny, .broke1 out between the
Sacramento and San Francisco regi
ments. Jealousy was the cause. The
upshot was the withdrawal of a portion
of the Sacramento men because their
leader, Col. Speed, had been courtmar
tialed and reduced to the ranks. When
they reached Atlantic last evening there
were two distinct armies. It was stated
last night that Speed and his men would
attempt to capture a train and leave
Kelley behind. Coxey rejoined his ar
my at Frederick, Md., the borne of Bar
bara Freitchie, and last , night he and
Brown addressed a large meeting. Fry's
army is, still in Terre Haute. There
was a hitch between the army and, the.
railroad company. The men ' declare
they will walk no further. The. New
England contingent has reached Provi
dence, and will today march to Scituate.
Commander Clinton and his army of the
Schuylkill met a cold reception at Elliott
City, Md. They were denied a place to
pitch their tent and ordered to move on.
They passed the night at Ashton. In
Chicago Randall's commonweal army is
having a boom. Collections are brisk
and recruits many. At Guthrie, O. T.,
several bands wero organized. Becauee
of the refusal of the ra.lroad companies
to furnish trains, they very sensibly de
cided to remain at home. Denver peo
ple have' organized a Coxey home re
serve. Its object is to bottom the move
ment. Late last hight a story was sent
out of the discovery of a plot .to waylay
and assassinate Kelly. As it was dis
covered in time, it failed.
The general debate on the tariff closed
yesterday, and the bill will now be con
sidered by paragraph. -

KhAKbAKGE'S CHAIN ARMOR.
How It Was Afterward Used to Protect a
The history of the Kearsarge has
been so many times told, says the New
York Herald, that it seems like "tak
ing- owls to Athens" to attempt to
say anything about her. There is,
however, an item of history connected
with this famous vessel which, so far
as I am aware, has never appeared in
A number of years ago while stop
ping- in a little mountain town in Ger
many I became acquainted with Chief
Eng-ineer A. Gebhardsbauer, of the im
perial German navy. He recalled to
me that when the Kearsarge . f ought
the Alabama off Cherbourg anchor
chains had been placed on both sides
of the Kearsarg-e in order to better
protect the boiler and engines from the
enemy s fire.
Along time after -the "battle, when
the Kearsarge was lying off the Azores
.Islands, the anchor chains which had
done such good service were delivered
over to the care of the United States
consul at FayaL They remained in
the consular store house until July,
At this time, just at .the outbreak of
the Franco-German war, the German
wooden frigate Arcona arrived at Fa-
yal. The Arcona was one of the old
type of wooden war vessels. Mr. Geb
hardsbauer, who was chief engineer of.
the Arcona, was ordered by her com
mander to rig -up something to afford
protection for her engine in case the
Arcona should fall in with a French
ship, it being the intention to proceed
to Oermany at once. '
' In a search for material in the store
.house of Mr. Dabney, the United States
consul, he found the old anchor chains
of the Kearsarge and immediately se-.
cured them. They were placed on the
Arcona exactly as they had been on
the Kearsarge, and in a short time she
was ready and sailed for the Father
The Arcona met with neither adven
ture nor trouble of - any kind on her
homeward voyage, but she remained in
service, and the chains were kept on
her until the close of The war, after
ward being turned over to the navy-
yard at Iviel as old iron. They were
still there in 188S, and several ' indents
made by the shot from the Alabama'
could still be seen in them.
The log book of the Kearsarge does
not show that the chains, were disposed
