A Sheboygan Man Assaulted on the Street Who Throw Sand in His by Robbors Take from Him a Sachel and Got Away with It. Eyes, Ing William Clarke, President of the Sheboygan Electric Light and Power cash Com- on pany, was robbed of 7:15 $19,500 o'clock in the Wisconsin street at evening. After supper he 'started to walk from the hotel to the depot, passing up Wisconsin street, the main thoroughfare of the city, and was passing an alley in the block between Cass and Marshall streets, and within "half a block of the depot, when he was stopped by two men. Without a word one of them threw a handful of something in his fairt, Mr.

Clarke beNo one happened to be in the vicinity at the time and Mr. Clarke a ran down to the lieves sand and before he could recover from his surprise the other had grabbed the sachel with money and the two disappeared down alley. depot and gave the alarm to the lone policeman he found there. Together: they returned to the sceno of robbery, but there was no trace of the robbers. They then hurried to tho Central Police Station, where Mr.

Clarke gave as good a description of tho robbers as possible, but that was very meager. One of them he described as tall and wearing a silk hat, while the other was short, wearing a cap and otherwise shabbily dressed. Mr. Clarke, although much affected by his loss, immediately started out with two detectives, while half a dozen other detectives were started out on different routes, but up to midnight not one of them bad reported a single clew that might possibly lead to an arrest. At first some of the police authorities were rather inclined to doubt Clarke's story.

They could not believe a sane man would be traveling with so much cash about the streets, and they thought, too, that it would be but natural for a man to make an outcry when robbed, which Mr. Clarke admitted he had not done, but instead had rushed down to the depot to find a policeman. But all doubt of Mr. Clarke having the moncy was dispelled late to night when Mr. Clarke's attorney, a leading lawyer of the city, was seen at his home and admitted having identified Mr.

Clarke at the Second Ward Bank this afternoon that he might cash the $22,000 check. Ho had spoken to Mr. Clarke, he said, about taking the entire amount in cash, but Mr. Clarko said he had some bills to pay here and also a $17,000 loan to pay at a Sheboygan bank. Mr.

Killelea further said that he had known Mr. Clarke for many years and did not doubt for a moment that he told the truth about the robbery. The only theory he could advance was that some one must have seen him draw the at the bank or had noticed the contents of the sachel in some of the places where he had paid out money this afternoon. Mr. Clarke is the sole proprietor of the Sheboygan electric plant, which represents an investment of $60,000.

GLADSTONE'S ULTIMATUM. He Says Mr. Parnell Must Withdraw from the Leadership. A At the request of Mr. Gladstone Mr.

Morley has communicated to Mr. Parnell the following letter, "written Monday: DEAR MR. MORLEY: Having arrived at a certain conclusion with regard to the continuance of Mr. Parnell's leadership of the Irish party, I have seen Mr. McCarthy on my arrival in town and have inquired from him whether I am likely to receive from Mr.

Parnell himself any communication on the subject. Mr. McCarthy replied that he was. unable to give me any information. I mentioned to him that in 18 after the terrible murder in Park, Mr.

Parnell, although totally removed from any idea of responsibility, had spontaneously written me and offered to take the Chiltern Hundreds, an offer much his honor, but which I thougbt It my duty to decline. While clinging to the to hope of a communication from Mr. Parnell, whomsoever addressed, I thought it necessary, vlewing the arrangements for the commencement of the session to-day, to at acquint which, Mr. McCarthy with the conclusion after using all the means of observation and reflection in my power, I had myself arrived. It was that, notwithstanding the great services rendered by Mr.

Parnell to his country, his continuance at the present moment in the leadership would be the productive of consequences disastrous In highest degree to the cause of Ireland. I think I may be warranted in so abovo far. to expand the conclusions asking you given as to add that Mr. P'arnell's continuance as loader would not only place hearty and effective friends of the many Irish cause in a position of great embarrassment but would render my retention of the leadership of the Liberal party, based as it has the been mainly upon the Irish almost a nullity. prosecution of This expansion of my views I begged Mr.

The crash came without any warning, and at the time the long rows bleachers were closely packed with spectators. It is estimated that there were more than 2,000 people in the structure at the time. A scene of indescribable confusion and panic followed the crash, which was heard in all parts of the grounds.

The occupants were mostly men, a great majority of them students from Yale and Princeton. There were also many women in the crowd. They all lay in a confused and struggling mass upon the ground. Many of them were completely buried under the wreckage of planks and joists, of which the rickety structure was built. screams and shrieks and groans which came from the unfortunates were heartrending to hear.

Many fainted. from the injuries they received. In an instant there Was general rush for that part of the field, and a score or more of blue; coated policemen were soon engaged inpulling tho maimed and wounded from the wreck. Others lent their assistance, and within ten minutes the whole place had been cleared. At first it was feared that some might have been killed, but this fear proved to be unfounded.

Many of the friends of the wounded people had 1 them carried at once out of the grounds and placed in backs, which took them away before their names could be learned.

POSTMASTER GENERAL WANAMAKER has made his annual report. The most Important paragraphs touching the Postoffice Department and its various ramifications are those. which deal with the subjects of postal telegraph, postal sa'vings banks and 1 cent postage. Mr. Wanamaker's position regarding a postal telegraph well known.

It is a deeprooted conviction with him that such a system would be of much greator benefit to the American people than' to leave the control of the telegraph service in the hands of a practical monopoly. Many sided as this question is the Postmaster General has, he says, studied it from every point of view. Ills report shows that he has fully considered the arguments that have been made against it, and that he believes he has successfully overthrown them all. Upon the subject of postal savings banks the Postmaster General also treats at length. Ilis report shows, the adoption of such auxiliaries to be useful several ways.

Their establishment in small outlying communities where savings banks do not exist will be, in tho first place, an encouragement to thrift and economy. Many millions of dollars will thus be saved annually that are now, in the absence of a proper protection, needlessly wasted The suggestion of 1-cent postage finds great favor in Mr. Wanamaker's eyes: The receipts from this source are now abont $38,000.000 annually. To divide the rate by onc-half would make, in his opinion, a deficit of $19,000,000, a larger burden than they country is now prepared to stand. While upon this subject tlic Postmaster General explains that the business of the other executive departments, which is free, would.

if it paid the usual postage, increase the revenue of the postal about 000,000 a year, a sum sufticient to offset the present deficit of $6,000,000 and leave 0. handsome balance of $2,000,000 besides.
