ARE ARGUING HER OASE.
An Improvement in the Telephones—The
Murdered Man Buried—Notes of the
Town—Personal and Other Matters.
Houston, Tex., Jan. 31.—The attention of
the district court has been ongaged all (lay
considering the caao of Mrs. Mollio C, Hay-
wood vs. the Mutual Life Insuranco company
of New York, m which the plaintiff is suing
for insuranco in the sum of $10,000 on the lifo
of her deceased husband, whose do&th occurred
in St. Louis last Decembor a year ago. The
defendant company is lighting it on the ground
that the husband committed suioidc. It is al-
loged that he died from the offccts of an over-
doso of morphine, which is not questioned, the
contention being mado on whether it was
nccidontal or intentional. The cdse was
begun this forenoon at 9.30 o'clock, all
of tho testimony was taken, and at 11.15,
not two hours after tho ca9e was Btarted the
plaintiff, Mrs. Mollie C. Haywood, diodat hor
home in tho Fifth ward. The case was not
Btopped and it was agrood by the attorneys
not to inform the jury of it but proceed with
it, which thoy are doing this evening. Tho
widow leaves four orphan children, and tho
decision of tho jury is awaited with more than
ordinary interest by a number of disinterested
people acquainted with tho remarkable facts.
The Late Murder,
The investigation by Chiof of Police Erich-
son into tho mystery surrounding the tragic
death of tho lato W. O. Ball, which ocourred
in this city last Sunday morning, is being kept
up and he is doing his best to get ut the bot-
tom of it. Ho is still vcy hopeful, but tho
desired information is difficult to get at. Jus-
tice Mahonoy, acting as coroner, is still tak-
ing testimony, of which ho took a good deal
to-day. but there is nothing now of
importance being brought out. The facts are
in gonoral, nay, substantially the samo given
tho public by the hewspapers yesterday and
to-day. AVhatover is now is of no importance
in revealing the identity of the murderer
or murderers, or tho exact locality
where the killing was done. Should
anyone in tho city know anything
that could possibly help the officers to accom-
plish their desired end it would be the part of
a good citizen to como forward and give tho
information. No mattor how small tho mat-
ter might be. it might open a chain that would
lead to the identity of the guilty parties.
Tho death of Mrs. Mollio C. Haywood oc-
curred this forenoon at 11.15 o'clock at her
home, 1000 Shea street, in tho Fifth ward.
She had been ill for soino timo, but her death
was a severe shock to thoso who woro about
her. She was the widow of the late Richard
Haywood, whose death occurrod in St. Louis
thirteen months ago. She loaves four chil-
dren, tho oldest 9 years, to mourn her death
and battlo with the sparse charity of a cold
world. Deceased was tho daughter of the lato
llev. Mr. Henkle of the Fifth ward, who died
a few years ago and left a widow, who is now
about 60 years of ago. Sho and tho orphans
are those upon whom death has laid its heavy
News reached tho city this forenoon of the
doath of Mr. Joseph Jonowski, aged 75 years,
and an old citizen of this county. It occurred
at the family homo, fivo miles east, on the
Montgomery road. He leaves grown children
to mourn his death.
The Erie telephono company, furnishing a
service for this people, is making some
arked improvements in its appliances here.
It iB putting in now boxos and new mouth-
pieces, bo that it will be unnecessary to raise
the voice in spoaking to the pitch UBed in ordi-
nary conversation. It is now so that one can
use tho telephone in an ordinary size room
without his utterances being understood by
others in tho room. The improvement is very
marked, being bo great that people invariably
speak too loud and thus Bend out a confused
Bnout rather than distinct articulation. The
ring of the call boll iB also much louder than
Burled by Tils Friends.
This afternoon the burial of the late W.
Ball took place from tho undertaker's es-
tablishment on Texas avenue. The doceased,
it will be remembered, was the victim of the
mysterious killing that was dono in this city
last Sunday morning before daylight. The
body was held until to-day with a hope that
an answer would be received from the parents
of the deceased living noar Kookuk, la. Noth-
ing was heard from them, and tho railroad
friendB of tho doceased laid tho body to rest
in the sacred precincts of Glen wood cemotery.

WAR OF WORDS RENEWED.
The Kansas Populists and Republicans
Have a Fresh Outbreak.
Topeka, Kan„ Jan, 31.—War in tho rival
houses has been resumed, but as in the past
tho fighting is still being dono on paper,
though it may end in trouble. Just beforo tho
rival housos adjourned last ovoning Spoakor
Dunsnioroof tho populist house handed a lettor
to Speaker Douglass of tho republican house.
In that lettor Spoakor Dunsmoro says tho
oloction of sonator and stato printer having
boon performed, thero oxists no further ex-
cuse for the republicans to refuse to recognize
the populist house. The legality of tho popu-
list house, says Dunsmoro, can bo ques-
tioned by no authority other than tho homo
itsolf, and he urges the republicans to abandon
their organization and go into tho populist
house. Tho refusal of the republicans to do
this, ho adds, will confirm his belief that the
railroads are sustaining the republican house
in tho hope of preventing the enactment of
railway legislation to which the populists
stand committod. Indeed, ho says, he is in-
formed the railways aro oven now paying tho
salaries of the officers of the republican house
and per diem allowances of its members.
NVhon the house mot this aftornoon Speaker
Douglass laid Spoakor Dunsmore's lettor be-
fore tho ropublican house and road a long
lettor in reply to it. He set forth the republi-
can position and explained the alloyed revolu-
tionary action of the populist minority. Con-
tinuing, l»o said if tho pooplo of Kansas ac-
quiesced in tho mothods by which tho populist
house was organized by the minority, then
popular and constitutional government was at
an end. Speaker Douglass denies with warmth
the statement that the railroads aro taking a
hand in tho ropublican tight and combats

powerless to act. Ho suggests that both sidos

to make to the lettor of my friend. Actions

bo in raising one-half tho stipulated amount.

an industry coming to tho town will provo of
great benefit to all.

ening the assassination of young F. P. Foster
upon any one. Mr. Foster was a young man
clerking in a plantation store just across tho

Tuesday night by two parties ostensibly to buy
something. Ho proceedod to wait upon them
and had woighod out a pound of coffoo wheu
he was shot, the ball striking him in tho loft
arm, breaking it, and entering his side. Ho
made an attoinpt to roach his room in tho
roar of the store, whoro his pistol was, but ho
fell just at tho threshold. Ho was then shot
four times in the back and robbed. All tho
money obtainod was about $70.

It was long a cherished idea of Bishop Otey,
tho first bishop of Tennessee, to found a
school for girls as a complement to tho uni-

years of labor, in which ho was assisted by
that "warrior bishop," Polk of Louisiana,

object of their lovo and pride, which for fifty-
six years has been sending forth daughtors

WRECKED BY AN EARTHQUAKE.
Many Livos Lost and Hundreds of People
Athens, Jan. 31.—The island of Zanto was
shaken this morning by an earthquake. Ir.
tho town of Zanto many housos wero wreckod
and the occupants ran in their night clothes
into tho stroet. The domo of tho prison fell
in and many prisoners woro killed. Tho
guard was doubled to prevent tho prisoners
from escaping and suppress disordor conse-
quent upon tho panic among thom. The walls
which had boon sprung and cracked, wero
braced. The hospital was shaken partly from
its foundations, all tho floors settled, and tho
roof sank several feet. The attendants ran
from tho building and wero induced with
difficulty half an hour aftor to re-
turn and help remove the patients to
another part of town. Two hours later the
town was shaken by ropeatod shocks, houses
fell in all quarters, aud tho prison became so
unsafe that many prisoners wero removed.
The pooplo in panic lied from their houses,
and crowdod the market placo. Scores
of familios loft town to camp in tho
fiolds on tho outskirts. Many dead bodies
havo boon found in the ruins, and 100 or moro
are reported injured sovorely. It has bocn
mpossible to get further details. The govern-
ment has sent out troops with provisions for
the reliof of tho homeless.
Dunkirk Holler Makora an<l Troops.
Buffalo, N. Y., Jan. 30.—The action of tho
Brooks people in asking for troops is a mys-
tery to the strikers, says a Dunkirk special.
Ono of the leaders of the men said to-day:
"We aro not a mob. A majority of the boiler
inon havo brains. Wo aro fools to mako not
here. We think the call for guards is a blull'.
If thero was any trouble hero, you would not
find any class of men who would turn in to
presorvo order quicker than would the boiler

The Uig Ice Gorge.
Louisville, Ky.f Jan. 31.—About fifty
barges went over the falls to-day. Tho head
of the Cincinnati gorge roached hore to-night.
The river is still rising, but it is believed the
worst is over. A conservative estimate places
tho total damago up to dato at $155,200.
An important difference: To mako it ap-
parent to thousands, who think themselves
ill, that they aro not affected with any disease,
but that the system simply needs cleansing, is
to bring comfort home to their hearts, as a cos-
tive condition is easily cured by using Syrup
