New York, Dec. 30 Baron Wilhelm von Puukamer, who :s said to be the ton of the Prussian statesman and nephew of Princess Bismark, wife of the great chan cellor, and who, after an eventful career as a German soldier, sailor aud man of tbe world ia geoeral, baa finally settled down in this country as a private in the ranKSof the salvation army, was struck on the head with aslungsbot and stabbed in the andomen shortly after 4 oVIock this mornitig m the hal way of. No 17 Abington square, where he has a room. Ao-ambulance was called from Siuyves aut hospital, whither toe wounded tana was taken. Tbe surgeons pronounced the wound in the abdomen dangerous. One blow on the head had cut the scalp, put had not fractured the tkull. Von Putikamer, upon recovering conscious' nets at the hospital, gave bis Version of a strange affair.

Schwartz cashier of the Port Angeles bank, who was recently convicted of em bezz!ement, broke jtil at Port Angeles last night and has not been recaptured. In Favor of Fierce. Salem, Or, Jan. 2 In tbe supreme court to day, in tbe case of H B Miller, appellant, vs. O. W. McBride, respond ent.'on appeal from Marion county, the opinion t f the lower court was sustained. This is a proceeding by mandamus to compel the respondent, as secretary of state, in making the official canvass of the votes cast for presidential electors at the late election as returned to him by tbe various county clerks, to abstain from counting certain votes alleged to have been illegally Cast for Nathan Pierce. one of the candidate! for elector nomi ated by tbe the People's party, in con sequence or his subsequent nomination by the Democratic party, and tbe priol- ng of his name on the otrcial ballot in more than one place that is, in both the People's and Democratic group of electors. The majority of tbe court is of tbe opinion that the printing of Pierce's name on the ballot in more than one place was con'rary to tbe provisions of the law, although Judge Bean was ot different impression. However this may be, the court all agree that tbe mistake. if it was a mistake in printing Pietce's name on tbe official ballot in both the People's and Deinocratie group of electors did not deprive the voter who cast such ballot-of bis elective franchise or the candidate for whom it was cast the benefit of such vote. The decision says the law is mandatory in tbe sense that it requires tbe county clerks, in tbe prep aration of tbe official ballot, to strictly comply with its provisions, but not in tbe sense that the voters right to exer cise tbe elective franchise will be lost be cause of tome technical mistake of tbe county clerk in printing' the names of the candidates upon the ballot. , The Homestead fotsoatnz Case. Philadelphia, Jan. 2. Members of tbe executive board of tbe Knights of Labor are investigating tbe report which connects leading members of tbe order with tbe alleged attempt to poison non union men at Homestead. - They say that it tbe charges are trne the men and tr.eir act9 will be repudiated by all true members of the order. It is not a crimt nal organization and does not knowiogly harbor criminals or allow tbem to remain among its membership. They do not. however, propose to prejodge any one. Tbey say that there is great eagerness very often to implicate members of an or ganized order, and especially tbe Enigbts of Labor, in real or imaginary plots ot all kinds,and are painfully aware that in some quarters justice, is not ;to be looked for when such members or officers are under criticism. ; Hence, the aCLnsations against tbe men at Pittsburg should be received with caution till something hag been shown. Cholera la Spreading;. London, Jan. 2 Cholera' has managed to keep itself alive in Hamburg almGst without intermission, and it is continu ally spreading in isolated, hamlets along tbe North sea coast in tbe Netherlands. In French Flanders one tiny village bas bad . 17 deaths in two days during tbe pist week. Belore tbe autumn frosts tat in tbe pest bad worked its way into two thirds of tbe river' systems of Europe, and was just beginning serious ravages in Hungary, Poland . and the Ukraine. It is a legitimate assumption that warm weather will see it burst forth simultane ously over a vast area. England seems quite alone among the nations id not be ing afraid of this visitation. No one here is talking about quarantine, or dwelling oo the chance ot infection. There will be an overhauling of sewers, drains and dock--quarter slums as soon as tbe frost goes, but nothing more. .Struck y an Avalanche. . Spokane, Jan. 1 Particulars .have been received of the wreck of a snow plow on tbe line of tbe Great Northern and tbe loss of four lives.

Williams, proDrieter of the Umatilla bouse bas skipped oat leaving numerous creditors to mourn bis departure. About two mouths ago Williams took charge ot the hotel, and bas since enjoyed liberal pat ronage.

The following case ot destitution is re ported in tbe columns of the Hood River Glacier: "White Salmon fnrniahes a case of sickness and destitution that appeals strong ly to the public's sympathy. Knot Knnt- aon some two month ago was taken sick with what proved to be typhoid fever. Since that every member of tbe family, ex cept the mother, twelve in all, have taken the disease, two of the girls dying. At present six of the family are in bed and those convalescent are physically unable to ears for the tick. The good people of Whit Salmoo are willing to do what they can for them, bat tear of taking the disease into their own families prevents their giving that care that they should have. Tbe family have but-one room in their house, which is distait several miles from any, neighbor. A collection was taken op here Christina ev for tbe benefit of this faroi y, amounting to about $6, and Wednesday Cash Luokey col lected 12160 more,' which he took over Thursday, to be used in caring for them.'

Tb saw used was made oat of a common table knife wh.ich bad been given the prisoner to eat their meal with, and in addition to this tbey used a hot iron poker with which they burned tbe nail oat.
