At a Popular Feast Near Moscow
There Was a Stampede Which the
Police Could Not Check Tragic
Ending of the Coronation Fetes. '
. Mobcow, June 2. A terrible panio,
resulting from the great crush of peo
ple at the popular feast here today, in
honor of the coronation .of the czar,
oaused the trampling to death of many
people, inolnding a woman delivered
of a child during the excitement. It is
estimated that over 1,100 persons per

In anticipation of a grand holiday
and a popular banquet on Hodynskv
plain, tens of thousands of people be
gan trooping toward Petrovosky pal
ace, in front of which the plain is situ
ated, this morning. In faot, thousands
reaohed the grounds last evening and.
camped-. there, or in the immediate
vicinity, in border to make sure of ob
taining good positions today. On the
plains long lines of rough tables, flank
ed by rougher benches, had been erect
ed. It was first arranged to accom
modate 400,000 people, but in view of
the immense crowds assembled in and
about the city at tha ooronation fetes,
extra tables and benches were erected
and every effort made to provide meals
for 500.000 people. To feed the mul
titude an army of cooks and waiters
were gathered together, the army bake
houses were taxed to the utmost and
500,000 mugs, eaoh bearing portraits
of the czar and. czarina, were ordered
for presentation to the people taking
part in the banquet. Thousands of
oattle, trainloads of provisions and
shiploads of liquid refreshments were
sent to the plain,: and this morning all
was in readiness for the gigantio event.
By dawn today the mass of peasants
about the tables was .really enormous,
and all were desperately hungry, some
having fasted for nearly twenty-four
hours. The police did everything pos
sible to keep back the crowd, but sud
denly the masses pressed forward and
swept evertyhing ; before them. They
overturned benches and tables, trampl
ing hundreds under foot and orushing
the life out of a great number. : - j
Among the dead found on the plain
were ladies evidently of high rank,
dressed in the finest silks and adorned
with jewels. . . "
The police barracks to whioh the
bodies of the dead were taken by the
authorities are besieged by persons
seeking news of friends and relatives.
The scene at the barracks is terrible
in the extreme. The remains of the
dead will be oonveyed to'the cemetery,
where a large morgue is located.
The disaster, as now explained, was
due mainly to the absence of the po
lice, who had not arrived at so early
an hour. Fully 200,000 persons of all
grades of sooiety had gathered together
on the plain at the time the disaster oc
curred. Only about 1,000 attendants
were in charge, and they seemed un
able to oontrol the , mob. Hoping to
lessen the pressure of the assembled
hundreds of thousands, all moving to
ward a common oenter, they tossed the
packages and presents into the midst of
the orowd. This seemingly preoipitat-,
ed the panic, sinoe a scramble to obtain
the gifts enused, and the hollow piece
of ground near the center formed a
death trap for thousands.
The buildings on all sides of ; the
plain, where Napoleon once concentrat
ed his troops after moving upon the
city, are in many oases being used as
temporary hospitals, and the soldiers
have been rendering great service in
removing the dead. .-
' Further time must elapse before ac
curate figures as to the number aotually
killed and the number of persons who
are viotims of the disaster, but who are
only suffering from injuries, can be
ascertained. ' " . '
-The disaster . . occurred between 5 and
6 o'clock this morning. It was. in
tended the banquet should ' oommence
before noon, but the immense throng
that gathered became so dense that the
attendants were overpowered and
thrown to the ground in the mad strug
gle which commenced for food, and
many ot the attendants are among the
dead. . . .J 44 ; .: '.7 V "4, ."
Between 8,000 and 3,000 Killed. '
Moscow, June 2. The disaster on
the Hodynsky plain yesterday is con
stantly gaining in proportion, as the
investigation by the authorities con
tinues. ., These are made under diffi
oulites, as the recovery of the victims
was oonducted by hundreds of volun
teers, and many were carried away be
fore they were enumerated. Many
additional deaths of the injured are oc
curring, whioh are only added to the
enumeration after some time.
It is said now the fatalities will
amount to between 2,000 and 8,000,
but it is impossible as yet to learn ex-
aotly the extent' of the disaster. The
official statement this morning plaoes
the dead recovered at 1,886, and the
seriously or fatally injured at 286.
But, in oonrtast with this offioial state-
ment, there are 1,282 oorpses lying this
afternoon at the cemetery, besides the
many dead removed from the ill-fated
field by friends.
THE GEORGIA METHOD.
Two Negroes Hanged Without the For
mality of a Trial, -,
Columbus, Ga , June 3. Atl0:40
this morning a mob of 600 armed men
broke into the Webster building dur
ing the trial of Jesse Slayton,' charged
with assaulting Mrs. Howard Bryan,
and took the prisoner from the officers.
Slay ton's trial had already begun be
hind locked doors, and.a heavily armed
guard of men was present to protect
the prisoner from any demonstration of
violenoe. The mob forced the doors,
and, with aresistless rush, swept baok
the spectators and guards and seized
and carried the negro into the street
A rope was placed around Slay ton's
neck, and he was dragged up Broad
street, the crowd shooting at him as
they went along.' n Near the bell tower
they swung the negro up and per
forated him with bullets. After this
the mob, as coolly and deliberately as
in the first instance, went immediately
to the courthouse, and, overpowering
the jailer, took Will Miles. a negro
charged with assaulting Mrs. Albright
two years ago, and marched him slow
ly to where Slayton's lifeless body was
hanging from a tree. - The trembling
negro was made to look upon the fate
of his brother in crime; then a rope
was plaoed about his neck, and he was
slowly suspended in the air and his
body riddled with bullets. V '
The bodies of the negroes were left
banging during the afternoon, and a
surging mass of humanity was packed
around the scene. The greatest exoite
ment prevails here and especially
among the negroes, 'and it is not im
probable that further trouble will en
sue, ' ' . . . J
AN INSULT TO THE FLAG.
Starry Banner of the Old Monitor
stroyed by an English Woman,
Boston, June 8. The famous old
flag, battle-scarred and torn by shells
in the celebrated encounter between
the Monitor and Merrimao, was wan
tonly destroyed on Saturday by an Eng
lish woman, while the nation was in
sulted by the indignity to which the.
stars and stripes were subjected. As a
oonsequenoe serious trouble is antici
pated, and it is feared that there may
be a riot, so intense itthe excitement
among patriotio orders?- Mrs. Charles
H. Eaves, who runs a boarding-house
at 1222 Washington streett shortly af
ter . the Memorial day:; parade had
ssed, ripped' down the famous relic,
tore it to shreds, stamped upon it and
turned it over to its owner with these
words: "Take your dirty old rag." ;
The woman admits the deed, giving
her only defense that the owner had
insulted her. The flag is owned by
Chester Salisbury, a boarder in the
house, who inherited it from bis adopt
ed father, Captain William H. Green,
who captured the transport Belle of
Cape Anne when she was anohored off
Fortress Monroe during the second bat
tle between the two famous naval mon
sters - The transport took part in the
fray and was fired upon by the Mer
rimao. She bore the flag during the
enoounter.' A warrant will be issued
for the arrest of (Mrs. Eaves at once,
and she will be turned over to the
United States authorities. Many
boarders in the house are very patriotio
and have much patriotio literature,
which has been mysteriously mutilated
and destroyed of late. : - Saturday's
events help to clear up the mystery.
Mrs. Eaves has only been in this coun
try a few years. ;'-. ' i
Extra police guard the house, fear
ing a riotous demonstration from
crowds oollected, who demand to see
the British woman who tears down the
stars and stripes. :i' . 4 '

Washington, June 1. The senate
today reaohed an agreement to take a
final vote on the bill to prohibit the is
sue of bonds, Hill reserving the .right
to move to postpone the vote,' Two
bills, repealing the law relating to re
bates on aloobol. used in the arts, and
amending the law concerning the dis
tilling of brandy from fruits, were
passed. The later authorized the ex
emption of distillers of brandy made
from the provisions relating to the
manufacture of spirits, exoept as to the
tax thereon. ' 1 : 4
, Washington, June 8. Most of the;
session of the senate today was given
to debate on the bond bilL Cullom
spoke against it as a step toward re
pudiation, and Brown in favor of this
bill or of a resolution offered by him
declaring that the bonds under any fu
ture issue would be illegal and void.
Morrill, chairman of the finance oom
mittee,' gave notioe of a tariff speech
tomororw. Brown presented the fol
lowing resolution: "That in the opin
ion of the senate of the United States,
the secretary of the treasury has no
authority, under the act of January 14,
1875, to issue bonds in addition to
those already issued, and that any such
bonds that may hereafter be issued by
him would be without authority of law
and void." A resolution by Lodge
was adopted requesting the president
for information as to the seizure of the
sohooner Frederick Geerin by the Can
adian cutter Aberdeen.

Washington, May 80. Almost the
sole topic of conversation among the
members of the house today ' was the
St. Louis tornado. Members stood
about in groups and disoussed the hor
rible details. As soon as the journal
had been read, Bartholdt asked unan
imous consent for the consideration of
a resolution prepared by Joy, of St
Louis, directing the seoretary of war
to place at the disposal of the mayors
of St Louis and East St Louis a
sufficient number of tents to afford
temporary relief to houseless in , .those
cities and to give suoh relief as might
be proper, eto. Bartholdt explained
that bis colleague, Hubbard, had
called upon the secretary 'of war this
morning, and had - been informed that
if congress would give the anthority,
eight or ten boats used near St Louis
in the Mississippi river could ,be sent
to the Mound city to render assistance
and relief. The resolution w$s unan

Washington, June 1. The house
spent almost the entire day debating
the Johnson-Stokes contested election,
case from the second South Carolina
district. An effort will be made to re
consider it, and if that fails, to unseat
Stokes and declare the seat vacant
The river and harbor bill veto was read
and referred without debate to the com
mittee. Hermann stated that action
on the motion to pass this bill over the
veto would probably be taken at an
early date. - The naval appropriation
bill was again sent to conference, the
two houses disagreeing on the number
of battleships, and the senate amend
ment limiting the cost of armor plate
to $350 per ton. Boutelle said it had
been ascertained that the average oost
of armor plate was $500. " He read a
letter from Seoretary Herbert, criticis
ing the language of the amendment by
whioh the secretary might be prevented
from making direot oontraots with
shipbuilders and for ships and armor.
Washington, June 8. The house
oommittee on rivers and harbors today
deoided to report to the house in favor
of the passage of the river and harbor
bill over the president's veto. There
was no difference in opinion between
Democrats and Republicans. ' The only
point of disoussion was whether the re
port should be in the nature of a reply
to the president's objections. An
affirmative conclusion was reaohed.
There was an attempt in the committee
to have the bill brought up in the house
today, - but- the- assuranoe given by
Representative Hermann that the bill
would be called up at an early date, pre
vented such aotion. 4,

Count Will Be Slow on Account 01 the "
: Number of Scratched Tickets.
Portland, Or., June 2. Never have
tickets in Oregon been so soratched as
at the election just held. The count is
progressing with phenomenal slow
ness. The only things certain are
that the Republicans have - elected
Bean supreme judge and has been suo
oessfdl'in most counties with local of
ficers. It is impossible yet to deter
mine whether the Republicans will
control the next legislature or whether
it will be in the hands of the Populists
In the second congressional district
it looks very much as though Quinn is
eleotec, . .
Indications from yesterday's election :
in the city of Portland are that the fol
lowing will have a plurality of votes:
Bean for supreme judge, large plur-
Quinn, for congress.
Lord, for distriot attorney.
Thompson, for member board of '
Pennoyer, for mayor. '
Frazier, for sheriff.
Moore, for cirouit court olerk.
Gambell, for auditor.
Haoheney, for city treasurer.
From the figures at hand the resul
of the eleotion in Multnomah county ,
is considerable of a snrpirse in many
ways. Candidates who were expected '.
to come somewhere near the head of.
the list are distanced, while others of '
but whom little was expected make a
remarkable showing. It is true that
some of the candidates now thought to
be elected may be defeated, but if the '
run of ballots already counted is any
oriterion of what the rest will be the
figures already at hand may be con
sidered a safe basis of calculation.
Some ot the candidates are running
so closely that only the official canvass
of the votes will determine the result
of the eleotion as to these offices. It is
generally conceded that the Mitohell
Repulbioan tioket has been elected,
with perhaps few exceptions.
There is no question but that Robert
S. Bean, regular Republican nominee, ,
is re-elected judge of the supreme court. '
In the seoond congressional distriot,
Martin Quinn, of Portland, the Peo
ple's Party candidate, is doubtless
eleoted to oongress. 1 This is a viotory
for free silver. 4 4 4
In the first congressional district;
word comes that Hon. Thomas H.
Tonguer the regular "-candidate is de- ;
feated by Vanderburg, the Populist,
and that ex-State Senator Jefferson
Myers will come out of the race a slow
third. The result of the eleotion in
that district, if the indications can be
relied upon, can be explained solely on
the ground that the fr 66-silver senti
ment predominates. ' .
