"Did  you     feel   the cturthiajuaiVe last  * ������  ��������� night?" At first as he heard the ac-  .counts of how the house shook and  mirrors danced, and lamps junnpod, ho  said to himself, in the lines of the  song '���������'they must have been a dream-  liig," Afti-r awhile, however, as dif-  iorent people. told thc same story, it  became evident that something more  .than dreams ,had happened. -  Undoubtedly     an     earthquake was  ifelt in. this   part, of  the island last  "Blight about 11.25.    The shock . >vas-  ielt-more in Nanaimo  than" here,  if  .stories  from  that city of  how brick  "buildings    shook,     how." people ".were  ' thrown to the flap-r-,   from the\ chains'  upon", - which they wereY*'itt'i'ig, and  how  loud  noises  which preceded the  shake caused people to  think  that an  explosion had.taken place are to   be  credited.  Here,  various, people tell stories of  how .they were .rudely -awakened from  sleep by  Hie shock..   Some say  they  were nearly thrown, from bed, others  remove their hats ho show, bruises on  the  top of their  heads which they  declare were not caused by i being whack  !cd on thc skull with a poker for coming" home  late,   but by   the knocking  of their heads  against   the bedstead  by the earthquake shock.  Many people declare   that  wash-ha-'  s.-'ig-j   hanging lamps,   pictures,   etc.,'  took;a notion to  dance,  while in all  cases the house is said  to lmve shaken  violently.

Yest^r-  ������ day  Brothers Killed and Their  Bodies Concealed  in,  the Woods  Middletown,  N.  Y.,   Oct.  7.���������A triple -m'urder was  revealed  here today  when the bodies cf Willis and   Fred  Olney were found :ti the woods half a  mile from  their home at  which  last  night,   was found   the' murdered  body  of Alice Ingerick.  Both  brothers tad  been shot.  Before night the crime .s expected  to number onc more victim, .Mrs.. G.  ingerick, the mother of the grl".Alice.  The mother was  found   unconsrious  in     the .barn  of  bhe .jlnoy "-..���������.���������others'  farm last night,  and has  not it gained consciousness.  She is aaid  \r-   her  physicians to Le dying     with   three  fractures in her skull.  As soon as daylight .permitted,     a  search to  be made for Fred and Willis .Oiney,     who  were  missing fiom  their home  last  night  w'icii At s. tu-  gernick was     found  ���������ncoiiscious and  her   daughter   murdered,   tracks  leading across  two fields to some twoods  near   the house  were seen  hy       thc  searchers.      The   tracks   were   fresh.  Just beyond, them jn the. woods were  found the bodies of Fred and Willis,  each   lying  in  the  same  position���������on  their  bac-K's,  with one arm stretched  acic-ss  the^ breast. . ,  All the pockets in their clothiig  had- been turned inside vat. Marks'  in the underbrush showed that ihe  bodies had been dragged from. Uie  \vag,on to the place where they were  found.  The police believc that  thc wagon,  which cvidenth  carried  the murdered  brothers to\ the woods yesterday was  noticed in   tlie   vicinity   of theOiney  farm.   Two stranger's"' were in     the'  wagon and.   they drove into, an old  backwoods     road about  half a mile  away   from   Olney   farm-house.     The  wagon, was seen driving up "oho   old  roarl  about 3 p.m. when   it disappeared, in the \woods which- tord*r     the  road.    At  one o'clckrk  atnight several hours after the- time  when  it   is  believed  thc murder  was committed,  this  wagon  was  seen on  the     same  road  driving away  fri'ni   the vicinity  of Olney   Brother's  farm.    The   wagon     went    toward  thc  Shawangunk  Mountains.  The police have not secured witnesses to the wagons course between   3  o'clock in the afternoon and  11     at  night.    The      fact  that  au attempt  was made to kiij every "person who is  known tohavc been in the Olnuy house-  just   before     the   murderous   attack  was made has caused the police and  the   entire    neighborhood   to  ���������declare  that   the crime liad    other     motive  than robbery, and  that thc rilling cf  the {Mney brothers' hockcts jwas only  a ruse to  mislead pursuit. \  Willis Olney was  a widower  whose  wife died last August,  and  Fred was  a bachelor.    Mrs.  Ingerick  who    had  separated   from   her  husband; "r-' had  been employed as  a house-keeper    at  the  Olney brothers'  place only about  a month.. ..'Her  husband,  Martin Ingerick,   lived   at  Wvirlstibbw,   N.W.

Dougherty for  forgery,  the directors  of   the  Peoria   National   Bank,   of   which  he  was  president,   announced   early this  morning ���������   that they had ie^ide-l   to  suspend  business,   and   would  call  in  the    controller  of  currency   to  wind  up the  affairs  of  the   institution. The-  meeting of directors lasted all   '.-veiling amd was held behind closed doors.  It was  admitted   that a run would he  incvitablc  today,   and   lhe  only      resource was to liquidate at once. Quiet    withdrawals   from the    bank  had  been    going    on  all      day yesterday.  Most of  the    calls   came from  banks  in    neighboring     towns.   The Peoria  National     Bank     is    capitalized    at  $200,000.  The Coal of Nicola. Will Never  Compete With island Coal  Says Supt, Little  Is   not of the Same Grade    and  as Yet Shown not to be Classed With Wellington Coal  .Superintendent    Frank      Little returned    the   fore part     or  the week  from    a trip  t      cjhe   Nicola     coal  fields,and dunng a conversation with  a    Ledger     representative gave     his  views of the Nicola.    While Mr. Little  qualified  his      remarks  by saying  that the small  amount of work done  in that section did not allow of more  than  a     superficial  knowledge of ihe  coal  measures,      he did not see anything lo     justify the belief that the  coal fields 0f-   Nicola     would ever in  any manner compare with our Island  coal.   Mr.  Little   said  nothing  about  Mr.     Diinsinuir giving  fphis.option  on  Nicola coal lands,   nor did he intimate   that      work would    te done  I hern,  but the inference that his conversation gave was that -it would  be  many years before coal in quantities  would be mined in the Nicola country  and that     it would, never in any way '  compete with Island coal.  !   Mr.  Little said the demand hi San  Francisco is somewhat better than it  usually is this time of the year,  and  t stated  that      the  outlook for   steady  work at Ladysmith .is <;ood.   The opening up  of the  Nanaimo mines > was  'a good, thing for the .Island generally  and will make not a praticie of difference    with      work in  the  Wellington  i Colliery     Company's    mine*,    "For,  if ihey   do not  get   Nanaimo oo|al,"  said he,  '-'to fill the supply over and  above    what   Wellington     mines are  shipping, it simply means that much  more    Australian -   coal is used, but  this is not   in demand when Vancon-  vcr Island coal is obtainable.  "Prospecting     is    being  continued  along | the  short-line,"  said Mr.   Little,   ''and  eventually the coal  measures  now being  explored  will  be used in Ladysmith-shipments."  BUSINESS MEETING OF  C EXADIES' GUILD  Decide to Hold Entertainments in  Near Future-New Officer  is Elected  The    Church    of  England   Ladies'  |  Guild   is     certainly    an enterprising '  body.    The members have long since  recognized    that     the  annual   baz-a-ar  by  which  it has  been  thc custom to  raise necessary funds,  is what might  be  termed a "hold-up."   At a recent  meeting  they solved  the problem as  to what means,shvuld be adopted to  ���������dispose of the  work  done during the  winter  by  the ladies,  without  holding     the  usual sale of  work.   They  have decided to  take, orders  for needle      work   of   all kinds.    Plain  and  fancy knitting, and all kinds of darning and mending will he done by the  ladies   at   reasonable  rates.   Anybody  drs-iriii"    to have  work done  should  aptly to Mrs.   Bo-wen,  thc  president,  who  will  quo!   prices  that   arc to be  charged.  The plan is a purely  business  one,  and as is  well known,  the  ladies always    do thoroughly     anything they  undertake.    They  therefore Jitfe  to  receive from their friends liberal support.  The ladies  also  decided  to hold   a  social in the Church building on Wednesday next,  a notice of which     appears  in another column.    An entertaining programme is being prepared  for  the event.    In  the  near  future a  play entitled   "King. Winter's   Carnival'   win Le     presented m the Opera  house  by    the  juvcnille members  of  the   church,     the proceeds cf which  will, of   course, go.   to replenish the  treasurary.  Mrs. 11. Mack 1 in was elected to the  office recently vacated by Mrs. Thos  Kiddie, that of secretary-treasurer of  the  Gu>Td.  The   officers     now are     as follows:  President,     Mrs R.  J. Bowen; vice-  president,  Mrs. XV.  J. Watson;��������� secretary-treasurer, Mrs. I-I. Macklin.  ADVOCATE  PUNISHMENT  Chicago,    Ills.,   Oct.7���������A   despatch  to   the  Tribune   from   Houston,   Texas, .says   a   pe-tilion   from   a nunthcr  of citizens;  headed  by G.  XV.   Knight,  of   San   Marc\s,   has   been   presented  to    Governor   Lanluim,   asking   that  the state  permit, mob  punishment of  negroes who assault women.  The governor is asked to endorse a  policy of absolute uhprotection to  negroes guilty of assault, insuring  that they be given no trial by legal  inquiry of any kind; and that they  may be hanged instantly, as soon as  apprehended.  Governor Lanham's response principally 'is directed to the legal phrase  of the proposition. It is set forth  that it is impossible for him to countenance the policy in view of oath of  olliee and the state legislation,-whicii  he  .'k bound to  protect.  RANCHER  DROWNED  MR.

Y" *���������  Tb* "R������jU Good Old Pout and Rail*'*  of Anatralitt.  Tho tea drinkers of Australia rival  those of China and Japan, not, however, In the quality, but in the quantity, _ consumed.     The  men  especially  drink the beverage In large quantities  and all day long and at a strength  which would make the cue of a tea  drinking Chinaman curl.    On Sunday  morning the tea drinker starts with a  clean pot and a clean record.   The pot  is hung over the fire, with a sufficiency  of water in it for the day's brew, and  when this is boiled he pours into it  enough of the fragrant herb to produce  a deep coffee colored liquid.  On Monday, without removing yesterday's tealeaves, he repeats the process,  on Tuesday the same, likewise on  Wednesday, and so on through the  week. Toward the close of the seven  days the pot Is filled with an acrid  mash of tea leaves, out of which- the  tea la squeezed by the pressure of a  tin cup. By this time the tea Is tha  color of rusty iron, incredibly bitter  and disagreeable to the uneducated  palate. The natives call It "real good  old post and rails," the simile being obviously drawn from a stiff and dangerous jump, and regard it as having been  brought to perfection.  1  FARMER  AND  MEGAPHONE.  THE ROMAN ARENAS.  They Were Not Mere Rlm*a, ������������������ Theae  of (lie Modern Clrcua.  The arenas of ancient Rome were  not, as some people suppose, mere  rings or ovals, such as may be seen  in the modern circus. They were  broken up and varied in character according to the nature of the fighting  to be ("(one or to the caprices of those  iu authority. On one occasion an arena  might resemble the Numidian desert,  on another tbe garden of Hesperides,  thick set with groves of trees and rising mounds, while again it pictured the  great rocks and caves of Thrace.  With these surroundings the combatants advanced, retreated, encircled  their adversaries or kept wild beasts  at bay as occasion offered or as their  courage or fear "suggested. Men combated not only with the more common  brutes, but with such monsters as elephants,, rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses  and crocodiles. On other occasions  flocks of galne, such as deer and. war  ostriches, were abandoned to the multitude, "and in some cases the arenas  could be turned into lakes, filled with  monsters of the deep, and upon the Bur-  face of which naval engagements took  plact.  I  Sow ������ Pilot on a   Boat  Stopped a EToiim  ' In a Cornfield.  1 was on the upper Ohio once when the  rtver was'luw, and was much amused over  the uso to which a pilot put u, megaphone.  He bought the thing to call nsborb an;  message that mi^ht have been given thi  boat to carry. This wns to save time, foi  those little bouts in tho local trades are a  great deal liko the old fashioned mail ear  riers���������anything to accommodate) the poo  Die along the bank.  "We were in tho pilot house, and the  boat, was running up a shoot near the-  West Virginia, side of tlie river. In a coru  field was an old farmer, who was follow  Ing a plow behind an old, flea bitten gray  that only needed a half invitation to stop  jt any time The pilot put the megaphone  to his mouth and shouted 'WhoaJ* and  the old gray whoocd.  "The farmer heard the sound, and he  thought, evidently, that a neighbor wa������  there or thereabout, for he looked around  to see whence tho sound came Then he  tossed a .clod at tho old horse and startod  him up  " 'WhoaI' 6aid tho pilot, and again tha  old horse stopped Then the old Rube  wont to tho river bank and looked clown  in tho willows, but not a soul uould ho  see Lio looked up and down and then at  the steamboat and Kuratnhcd his bead in  surprise He uouldn t afford to waste any  time in looking for the ghost, lor he went  back to the plow und started on with hi*  job  " Once more tho joki.ik pilot said' Whom*  wul again the horse stopped dead still  You could see from the boat that the old  follow was all mixed up^ for ho looked up  and down tho river and then at the hill  Bides behind htm to see il ho could IInil the  mun who was working him and his old  horse lie made up his mind that he  would take It out of the old uniy. and to  (1.1 tor the occasion he went to the under-  bnis-li and cut a stick tliat was 10 feet  long Ho started the horse with a vengeance When the pilot hollered 'Whoa I  again tho old man gave tho gray a lick  that sounded clear to tho boat. Wo could  almost hear bun say:  '' 'Thar, gol darn youi Til tench you  to stop when you heur u spook hollerin at  you '  "But the pilot kept  up tho  good work  and hollered 'Wheal   Whoa I   Whoa!' and  fig/tin ami again tlio old man hit the gray  Finally it looked as if ho had caught on  for ho   lot  the  old   horse stop  whllo  ho  watched the boat.  "Then .the pilot thought hc had had  enough fun und ho called out:  "'Feed tho old gray 1 Feed him I flo's  so hungry that ho can t work.
