A silly story is going the rounds of the
Northern press to the effect that it is reported
that Queen Victoria desires to marry her
daughter Beatrice to President Arthur.
A Washington dispatch says " there is a
panic among the Star-Route thieves." Many
people outside of Washington suspect that the
zeal of the administration is put on to veil the
Dakota not only wants to be erected into a
State, but she asks to hare a portion of her
territory lopped off and put in territorial
■waddlings. Being Republican to the back-
bone, her ambition will no doubt be gratified.
It has leaked out, so it is said, that the result
of the Flipper trial will be dismissal from the
service. Whether such a verdict will be sus-
tained by the authorities at Washington, will
depend pretty much on the value placed upon
the political effect among the colored voters of
The new Chinese minister, in addition to all
his other attractions, is said to be first cousin
to the moon. He traces his lineage by the
heraldry of the Celestials, and each of his
fourteen private secretaries and ten servants is
a living witness to the accuracy of the genea-
Mrs. Langtby is earning $500 a week on
the stage, not by exhibiting herself as a 44 pro-
ftsdonal beauty " but as a professional actress
of decided merit. But that doesn't signify
that all the pretty women will make star
actresses. Beauty is ofteoer fatal to amb ition
than auxiliary to success.
The New York Tribune says "it is a public
duty and necessity that the late elections at
the South should be investigated." This was
its parting shot from the old year, and is sig-
nificant of the devilment outlined for the new
year. Why not "investigate the late elections "
at the North as well as at the South?
The loaves and fishes are the attraction with
which the Republican party is expected to al-
lure the solid South to division. Some of the
fish are just being sent to Texas. They are
little specimens of the carp, and are not sup-
plied to be put on the table righfc away, but to
be placed in ponds where they may grow.

Expressing doubt as to the professed friend-
ship between President Arthur and Mr. Blaine,
a Western Exchange remarks:
Who can be so foolish as to think that these men
are real friends? The ambirions of the one can on-
ly be successful by the ruin of the other. 'They
shake hands when they meet, but for all that they
are in a battle to the death, and neither side will
ask or give quarter.
The shoemakers of New York say that many
of the men and women of that city have " feet
so broad and flat that they have to make their
lasts in four sections in order to get them out
after the shoe is made." But they console the
men by the additional piece of information
that " the finest looking men are those who
have the ugliest feet."
Kansas is trying the experiment of cotton
production. One planter ginned and shipped
100 bales last year, and it is reported of excel-
lent quality. This fact, and the presence of
thousands of negroes who were raised in the
cotton fields, it is thought, will stimulate the
effort in that State, and carry the production
to surprising success.
The young ladies have gained the victory in
the war against the broad-brimmed hats, and
now the extreme of fashion has the circum-
ference of the cart wheel. This success bag
given rise to a cannonade at the narrow
trowsers legs affected by the fancy young
gentlemen, and the coming style will proba-
bly be measured by the corn sack.
Queen Victoria has an annual allowance
of $1,925,000, with the addition of a yearly
revenue of $350,000 from the Duchy of Lan-
caster. TUis raises her income from the State
to $2,275,000 a year. Besides this the royal
family is paid $800,000 annually to keep up its
dignity; so that the cost of royalty in England
is $3,075,000 yearly, with free use of palaces,
Surely all the children in America have
been made happy this Christmas. The papers
of almost every city are bragging on the
liberality of the people and the profusion of
gifts from the patron saint. It is stated that
Adams's Express used 170 wagons in New York
the week before Christmas, delivering all day
long, and like activity is reported from all the
The people will sustain Congress in the
prompt payment of liberal fees to the sur-
geons who attended President Garfield, but
they will hardly tolerate sentimental extrava-
gance. Justice should be done, and done with
a liberal hand, but $30,000 to Dr. Agnew, $25,-
000 to Dr. Hamilton and as much more to Dr.
Bliss, seem out of proportion to service, and
sympathy should not be allowed.
Mr. Calkins, chairman of the House Com-
mittee on Elections, solemnly assures the
country that th^re is "nothing unfair in the
composition of his committee, and that it will
do nothing unfair." If it was not purposely
packed to unseat Democrats, Mr. Keif-er was
exceedingly unfortunate in making it up, for
it is difficult for any honest man to escape the
conclusion that he had a purpose.
A scandal travels fast, and continues to
travel faster when pursued by the truth. The
slander that the British minister, Hon. Sack-
ville West, though a bachelor, has a family of
children, was promptly and successfully ex-
plained, but the scandal-loving newspapers of
the country continue to repeat the story with-
out; referring to the contradiction. Mr. West
has children, but they are the offspring of
The Chicago Inter-Ocean sees danger ahead.
It is thrown into spasms by the prospect of
having no cause to fight the South. After
showing very conclusively, as it thinks, that
the Bourbons of the South are rapi dly going
over to the Republicans, and that a " decided
breaking up of the Democracy,} is assured, it
suddenly reflects upon the consequences and
exclaims: "The point is, what will be left of
Democracy to fight when the South goes back
on the party?"

Judge Buckner boldly expresses the belief
that the " Banking and Currency committee,
as constituted by Speaker Keifer, will belong
to Comptroller Knox and the national banks,"
and the St. Louis Republican " does not be-
lieve there is a prominent committee of the
House which has not been purposely consti-
tuted to do the bidding of some particular
lobby or interested clique." This is pretty hard
on Keifer, and yet the complexion of the com-
mittees suggests the criticism.
Chairman Burrows, of the committee on
Territories, says if the Democrats filibuster
against the admission of Dakota as a State, he
and the Republicans will fight it out if it takes
to the end of the Forty-seventh Congress.
Perhaps had Dakota the attributes prerequisite
her admission as a State the Democrats
ould advocate her admission; since she sadly
lacks the attributes, Chairman Burrows had
as well arm himself for the fight. This may

Commenting on t^ census bulletin relating
to the rapid destruc&m of timber in the great
lumbering districts of the country, the Chi-
cago Inter Ocean r&narks:
The man who owns forest should guard it, and
reasonably expect in £**e future a rich reward for
his care. It would saPm as if the time had arrived
when the United Sta.$* should imitate something
of the wisdom of tbv German Empire in protect-
ing its timber, and, r*s well, replanting large dis-
tricts not otherwise used. Germany has acted
far more wisely in this matter than other European
countries. Italy, Spain. Austria and Russia have
allowed the destruction of millions upon millioas
of acres of as fine forests as ever grew, and are
now paying the penalty in gathering their lumber
from mountains and pfaces difficult to reach, or
importing from ot \er more favored countries.
The Gulf Spates and Oregon and its adjacent Terri-
tories are yet rich in :io» timber. That there should
be some sure mean#-* protecting it from need-
less ravages and dos .ruction no thinking man can
Mr. Bright is not the only distinguished
subject of Great Britain who sees a great fu-
ture for the Ameri-a^i Republic, and dares say
so. The Rev. Joh ^Davis, in his Christmas
sermons at the Chapel Royal, St. James's
Palace, referred ti the revision of the New
Testament as om uf the most remarkable
events of the year, and said the demand for
the work among Anglo-Saxon people was an
exceptional event in history. He dwelt par-

The Chicago Tribune stoutly maintains its

the question? Mr. Arthur is the president, the
acting president, the president ds facto and
the president de jure. Perhaps the argument
of the prisoner to his attorney will be sufficient
answer to the caviler. After hearing the
prisoner's story of his offense and the causa of

The SuDreme Court judges and American
Bar Association are seeking a plan for the re-
lief of the United States Supreme Court. The
plan of the American Bar Association contem-
plates the establishment of another court to
consist of fifteen fudges; while the judges
themselves, holding that this will lower the
dignity of the court, favor the passage of an
act providing for the creation of an additional
court which shall haar and have jurisdiction of
a certain class of cases that now go to the Su-
preme Court, but reserving to the present
court jurisdiction lif all the higher and more
important cases, such as involve constitutional
questions, etc. Owing to the crowded docket at
present, and what has long seemed to the coun-
try a lack of capacity for work in the mem
bers of the present bench, there may exist a
necessity for an enlargement of the court or
for the establishment of a branch court with
jurisdiction over certain minor cases.

Carp for Texas—Ten Thousand to Start
Wltlt—Routes Over Which They Will

the National Capital.
1 Special Telegram to The News.1
Washington, January 2.—Mr. Ellis, of the
United States fish commission, accompanied
by six assistants, *vill start to-morrow night
for Texas with 10,000 carp fish. The United
States fish commission car will first stop at
Texarkana for twenty-four hours, and will
distribute to deserving applicants there. From
that point an assistant will be sent to Jeffer-
son, Marshall, Miueola, Wills Point, Clarks-
ville, Bonham i ad Paris with fish for
Culberson's distrie . The fish car will proceed
via Sherman to Dallas, and from that point an
assistant will proceed to Fort Worth, Kauf-
man, Ennis, McKianey and Gainesville, to dis-
tribute fish for "VTtjllborn's district. The car
then goes to Corsicana, and will from there
and convenient points supply Mills's district.
From Corsicana 5t goes to Austin and from
that place will determine what routes to take
to supply Reagan's, Jones's aad Upson's dis-
tricts. However, from Texarkana a messen-
ger will take the Texas and St. Louis Narrow-
Gauge and give out fish at Pittsburgh and Tyler
and proceed on to Waco. These are the
routes and places now determined on,
but the agents will do the best in
their power to make a fair and equal distribu-
tion; hence their action will be more or less
controlled by their observation while in Texas.
When this supply is exhausted, 7000 more
young carp will follow.
To-day was bright and cool, and the New
Year receptions were exceptionally brilliant

Washington, January 2.—The weather to-

clear, cool and bracing, and the custom of
new year's calling was very generally ob-
served. The fact that it was President Ar-
thur's first new year's reception attracted a
full attendance at the White House. All the
foreign legations were represented, and the
usual programme was carried out. The dec-
oration of the White House was less profuse
than in former years, because of the recent
death of President Garfield, only plants aud
flowers being used, and tnose in moderation.

[Special Telegram to The News.]
Little Rock, January 2.—Squire Alexan-
der Lee, residing ten miles east of Star City,
was standing near the gate leading to his house
Saturday evening, with a shot-gun in his hand,
when a negro woman passed through the gate.
In closing, the gate struck the trigger of. the
gun, discharging the contents into the body of
the woman, killing her instantly.
Alice Thompson, calored, was found dead in
her cabin on the Atkins place, in Lincoln
county Saturday night. She had been bru-
tally murdered with an axe. Suspicion rests
upon her husbband, from whom she separated
some months since. Proceedings for divorce
were pending in court, and the supposition is
that Thompson killed her to avoid the pay-
ment of alimony.
No compromise has yet been effected be-
tween Governor Churchill and the investigat-
ing committee that reported the alleged dis-
crepancy in his accounts as treasurer. The
governor insists that he shall have access to all
the books of the treasury office in order to ex-
plain t'ue deficit. This the committee have re-
fused, and assert that he shall be restricted to
the examination of such interviews as consti-
tute the reported defalcation. On Satur-
day evening the committee addressed
a letter to tha governor modifying
the previous restrictions, but not sufficiently
to be so satisfactory to the governor or his
friends. The latter dpclare that be must have
a fair showing, and tk&t, unless this is granted,
the matter will be carried to the next legisla-
ture for final adjudication. There are fifteen
bondsmen, among t'aem the wealthiest men in
the State. A number of them met in the gov-
ernor's office at 11 (/clock this morning, and
informally discussed the situation. All agreed
that Governor Churchill was justified in re-
fusing to accept the proposition of the com-
mittee, unless ail the records were placed at
his disposal, so that his explanation could
be full and complete. A prominent
citizen informed your correspondent to-night
that in two items alo^e the governor was en-
titled to a credit life $150,000. There were
$40,000 in warrants paid out to members of the
legislature in 1875, wiich warrants have been
mislaid or stolen; bat the money paid upon
them was received, at can be proved by the
legislature. Tne btjnds of various coun-
ties, redeemable at the State treasury,
were so redeemed. but through an
error no credit was given the State treasurer.
The full amount of ijhtso bonds is placcd at
about $100,000. There are other items which
it is claimed will covdr the full amount of the
deficit. Governor Qiurchiii and his friends
are quite confident thjit with a fair showing he
will be able to account satisfactorily for every
dollar. To-morrow 1)9 will appear before the
committee, and if existing differences are ad-
justed, will take the initial steps in his explan-
ation. Several days jwill be required to give

Prisoners Escape from Jail and Fight
Desperately Until They are Killed—
Officers and Citizens Killed and
ISpecial Telegram to The News.1
Graham, January 2.—A terrible tragedy
took place here Sunday morning, which result-
ed in the instant death of four men, and the
wounding of two or three others, one of them,
perhaps, fatally. The three murderers of
Martin, at Belknap, named McDonald, are all
killed. A deputy-sheriff named Murfee was
shot through the heart. Another deputy
named Davis Melton, brother of the sheriff,
was shot three times, perhaps fatally. Another
man was seriously wounded in the leg, and it
is reported an old man named Woods is wound-
ed in the thigh. The affair occurred about 10
o'clock. The two deputies named were giving
the prisoners their breakfast. For this purpose
the McDonald boys were let out of the steel
cage, as usual, into another room, which is
called a calaboose, and which is separated
from the steel cage by two iron doors and a
heavy oak door. An oak cell also opens into this
calaboose. There were two other prisoners
named Jim Bone and Jack Baldwin eating
with the McDonalds. Davis Melton stood in
the door of the wooden cell with two revolvers
in his hands guarding them while they ate
but it seems the prisoners were carefully
watching him. The other deputy was in the
steel cell with a hatchet testing it. Watching
their opportunity, when Melton unguardedly
transferred both pistols to one hand to put his
hand in his pocket for a match, the McDonalds
suddenly jumped on him, seized his weapons
and held him as their prisoner. In his strug-
gle to escape, he was shot through the hand.
He called to Murfee, the other deputy, for as-
sistance. Murfee came immediately, but was
shot and instantly killed by the prisoners.
They then tore a hole in the floor
of the calaboose and let themselves
through into the room below, taking
Melton with them. They went out at the
back door of the jail, carefully avoiding a
fierce bloodhound tied in the back-yard, and
proceeded as fast as their shackles would per-
mit in a southwesterly direction from the jail.
Two of the prisoners held Melton while the
third walked backwards, with his back to Mel-
ton's back, and threatened the citizens, who
had congregated near the jail with guns, that
he would kill the deputy, Melton, in case they
were fired upon. They proceeded in this man-
ner some 300 yards, no one daring to open fire
on them, fearing that they would also shoot
Melton. At last a citizen, more daring than
the rest, took careful aim and shot the right-
hand prisoner, who fell mortally wounded.
Melton seized the opportunity and broke
loose and ran in the direction of
the public square. The firing now became
general. All the citizens fired in turn on the
prisoners, who promptly returned the fire.
They also wounded Melton in the face and
leg as he retreated. The prisoners soon fell to
earth, but continued firing at the citizens,
and lay expiring among the weeds and stumps
where they fell, which formed a masked bat
betry as long as they had breath in them. It
was some time after all shooting had ceased
before any ene ventured near the place, think-
ing they might be feigning death in order to
get another opportunity to shoot. At length
the citizens approached and ascertained that
although two of them still breathed, they were
past doing any harm. The town is a scene of
the wildest excitement. A Sunday-school in
session, near the place of massacre,]was a place
of terror. Some of the children hid away
from the doors and windows, while others,
more curious than cautions, gazed out on the
whole tragedy. One lady in church, sister to
the murdered deputy, when the rumor reached
her of her brother's death, gave a scream of
agony and fainted away. Mrs. Murfee, mother
of the murdered man, is lying in a precarious
condition and her life is despaired of by some.
Young Melton, the deputy who escaped from
the hands of the prisoners, notwithstanding
his three terrible wounds, procured a gun and
came back to take part in the affray. He lies
in a hotel where physicians are now dressing
his wounds. The wound in the face is the only
dangerous one he received. A young man, a
waiter at the hotel, called Joe, had the bone
of his leg shattered so that amputation is
necessary. Mr. Woods received a flesh
wound in the thigh and is doing well. Ser-
vices in the different churches were abandoned,
Sunday-schools were closed in the utter con-
fusion. and it is thought no ladies will venture
out to church to-night, so. great is the terror.
It is but just to say that the two prisoners,
Baldwin and Bone, took no part in the shoot
ing. Indeed it is said one of them interposed
to save the life of young Melton as one of the
McDonalds was about to shcot him. A cor-
oner's jury was summoned and rendered a ver-
dict in accordance with the facts as above
furniture from the ticket office. The furniture
in Ginnocchio's bar and his goods in his front
store were gotten out, but badly damaged.
Some twenty barrels of liquors in his back
room were burned. Everything of value in
the express office was lost. The total loss is
estimated at $30,000. Among the suf-
ferers are the following: Heard, Gar-
rett & No wood, owners of the Texas-
Pacific Hotel building and attached
houses, value $10,000; insured for $5500. N.
A. Harvey, White House building and furni-
ture; value $3000, insured for $1000. C. Gin-
nochio, stock $5000; insured for $2250. French
John, furniture and stock $1000; insurance
$500. Victor Cavalyrac, furniture $4000; in-
surance $2300. J. M. Glass, furniture $3000;
insurance $1250. Texas Express Company,
loss not known. It was with hard work that
the Pacific Express office was saved, which also
saved the office of the division superintendent
and the train dispatcher's office of the road.
Superintendent George Sands did noble ser-
vice, and with the railroad crowd and the city
firemen saved this property. The company
will doubtless start immediately to erect a
depot that will be a credit to the company and
an ornament to the city.

New York, January 2.—Tc-lay was observ-
ed as New Year's day in the city, and all busi-
ness was suspended. The streets down town bore
much the appearance of Sunday, all exchanges,
courts and offices bein^ closed, but up town
the scene was made livelier with New Year's

day was a very cold one.
This afternoon fire broke out in the cracker
bakery of Hatfield & Ducker, Nos. 42 and 44
Fulton street, Brooklyn. Fire engines were

The backery is four-storv brick structure
and running through from Fulton to Doughty
street, an I contained all the machinery and
improvements for the business.
The entire building was gutted. The firm
estimates their loss on stock of machinery and

whites attached to or following the movements
of the Atlantic and Pacific Riilroad. Th^ In-
dians have in consequence become thoroughly
exasperated and threaten uprisings.
The report of small-pox existing among the
Apaches, except in sporadic cases, is regarded
here as fanciful.
Accounts from Presido del Norte, Mexico,
of the capture by Mexicans of forty Apaches
on the warpath make it certain that the cap-
tured Indians were Nona, the well know war-
chief and the remnant of his followers. The
Indians went into a village opposite Presido
del Norte and attempted to make a treaty of
peace, when the inhabitants took them pris
oners, shot Nona and the other chiefs, and
sent the remainder south, intending to place

tion of the city is $25,650,000, an increase in
