Decatur Daily Despatch, The (Newspaper) - August 27, 1889, Decatur, Illinois OFFERED THIS WEEK AT BRADLEY BROS 1OO Bpec'ml to Di c vnm DESPATCH. ASHLAND, Wia, Aug. the stage which runs between Gogebic on the, Milwaukee, Lake Shore Western road just over tho lino in Michigan, and Gogobic lake, was running along at a lively gnit through a dense forest, and when within two miles of the station, n lone highwayman jumped out in front of it, and, pointing two big navy rev olvors at the drivers' commanded him to throw up his hands, andoxtended the same order to the four passengers inside of the coach, with the further provision that they "bhell out" all the loose valuables and currency. One of the passengers went down in his pocket, but instead of bringing tip his pocket- book, he clenched a pistol in his hand and began tiling at the robber. Instead of being overcome by the suddenness of his intended victim's move, the robber returned fire. The driver whipped up his horses into a mad run, but tho aim of tho highwayman was true. B. Mackouhai, of the lirst national bunk of Minneapolis, was shot through tho oheek and another bullet wont through his leg. Another passenger named A. U. Fleoschbein, of Ashland, was mortally wounded, lie raised up in his seat as the horses were whipped away, just in time to receive a bullet in his hip. He fell forward and pitched over the side ot the couch into tno roadway. The stage hoiscs continued on the run and the wounded man wns left to take his chancou with tho robber. Tho villian threatened to kiil Flocschboin, but finally desisted after securing 835 and tho victim's watch and chain. Tho wounded miin lay bleeding in the load for three hours before ;m> one courageous enough to go to lim uuiioi was bocurod. He was taken to Hie hospital at Besaimor, but tho loss of blood wns HO groat as to blight all hope for lim iccovery. Physicians say he will not live over night.

All com- munication with tho rest of the world by water is completely cut off as though the Thames had dried up and had been turned into a garden farm. The great ships lying at the docks can neither load nor discharge their cargoes, and the immense tralllc ot the greatest commercial city of the world lies at the mercy of men commer- cially rated at A DOLLAR A DAY. Up to today the strikes ot the dock- laborers have been regarded by the Lon- don populace not, indeed, without in- terest, but with that languid interest which is felt in affairs which concern other people and not ourselves. But this is all over and the strike, and its consequences touch every man, woman and child in this great city. No meat arrived in London today. The markets in Mark Lane are paralyzed and maize advanced five shillings a quarter for immediate use. A FEVER OP EXCITEMENT. Today the city was thrown into a fever of excitement when the coal handlers struck and it was announced that the gas stokers intended to follow suit and leave the city in darkness today. The electric companies were filled with orders from commercial houses who Bought to avert such a calamity and they have largely increased their force. So far the gas stokers remain at work, but there is no telling at what minute they may stop work. Although the strikes BO far include only a few industries not directly con- nected with transportation, there is scarcely an important trade carried on in London in which there are not loud mutterings of discontent. TALK OP FORCING THE ISSUE. There is also talk of compelling labor- ers in all the trades to quit work and force matters to an issue at once. The iron-workers' strike adds to the number of the unemployed. The men are as yet quite orderly. The shipping business is completely paralyzed and mail steamers are leaving without car- goes. SUITS AGAINST DOCK OWNERS. Many ship owners have begun suits against the Commercial Dock company, claiming damages for the detention ot their vessels. The company, however, claim that the act of parliament grant- ing them a charter precludes the en- forcement of any claims for damages owing to strikes.

There are grave doubts as to Inn recovoi> too. There were two other passengers on the coach but neither of them were molested. They were William Paddon of Chicago and Robert Rinlout of tho bank ot Montreal in Chicago. The party was out on a lishing trip and was com posed of wealthy men. Tho description of tho robber tal- lies to the letter with that of tho daung freebooter who went through tho Northwestern train nenr Ellis Junction. Sheriff Dave Doloy, of Bessemer, a very determined man, or gimized a posse of n doxen men and has gone in hot pursuit. Tho chances of capture, however, are very slight. A Conxli uHlon Train Wrecked. Special lo UHOArUH UKHPATUH. LINCOLN Neb., Aug. was re- ceived hero tonight that a construction train was wrecked late Saturday night on tho Burlington Missouri railway near Pine Bridge tunnel, about 350miles northwest of this city. Tho train was running backwards when two cars were thrown from the track by a plunk. Eleven men were more or less injured, nearly all of the wounds consisting of broken legs and dislocated ankles. One or two of the injured men are thought to be in a seri- ous condition. Tho road upon which the accident occurred is the Burlington extension from Lincoln to Black Hills. To Aid the to Hear Free.

The damage by the break in the Erie canal bank at Shelby's is now estimated at over One quarry owner estimates his loss at to the bridges and the basin. Between the break and the lake much land is flooded and bridges swept away. A steam canal boat, loaded with resin, was caught and wedged across the canal and will prob- ably break in two. There is danger of the water undermining the New York Control tracks. Superintendent Serveas and a gnng of men are trying to stop the leak, ______ _ A DOUBLE LIFE. JOINED THE STRIKE. The tinners at Bermondeye, a sub- urban town, have joined the strikers. In Rotherhitchie, the ship-building district of London, processions of strikers are marching continually, but up to the present time the men seem to be peace- ably disposed. FOUR MILLS SHUT DOWN. Four of the largest mills in Blackburn have been shut down, owing to the dull- ness of trade. ANOTHER CONFEHKNCK. Was held today between the mana- gers of the docks and the laborers' dele- gates but no agreement was reached. Arbitration of their differences was again proposed by the representatives of the strikers, but the employers refused to listen to any proposal to submit their case to the hands of third parties for a decision. As a consequence of the dock laborers' strike, thousands of tons of mutton are rotting in the ships which have arrived here within the week. It is being found impossible to unload. Sentenced to IinprlHoninent. Special to DIOATDB DESPATCH. CORK, Aug. trial of William O'Brien and James Gilhooley, members of parliament, on the charge ot speaking at a proclaimed meeting at Clonakilty, was concluded today. Mr. O'Brien was sentenced to two months imprisonment and Mr. Gilhooley to six weeks, both without hard labor. At expiration of these terms of sentence each must fur- nish bonds to keep the peace for six months, and, in the event of their failing so to do, two months of imprisonment additional is to be imposed upon each by the terms of the sentence. O'Brien and Gilhooley were taken from the court room to the Cork jail under military escort. They were loudly cheered by the crowds which had assem- bled all along the route to the prison. front, "I have received notice from three of the In the Cronin case asking a separata trial and saying that they would apply for a separate trial on the opening of the oourt this morning. Their application, I presume, is on flier "If your honor said Attorney Donahoe, "I desire, before an argument for a separate trial, to present a motion on behalf of my client, John Knnce." Mr. Donahoe then formally motion, asking the court tor an order upon State's Attorney Longenecker to compel the latter to furnish Kunze with the minutes or memoranda ot the testi- mony taken before the grand jury which found the indictment against said Kunzo, or of any testimony which in any way tended to prove the gutlt of said Kunze, or to allow the counsel ot Kunce to examine the testimony ot such wit- nesses before the grand jury whose evi- dence in any way tended to prove the complicity of Kunze in the Cronin mur- der. The motion also asked that the state's attorney furnish the names ot the witnesses whose testimony tended to the indictment of said Kunce. Mr. Donahoe then read a long affidavit of his client in which Mr. Kunce recited that he never knew Dr. Cronin during the tetter's lifetime, never heard ot his existence until after bis disappearance on May 1, and that he was entirely in- nocent of any complicity in or knowl- edge ot the murder of Dr. Cronin. ALL UIHSATIUFIKD. This was followed by an affidavit by one of O'Sullivan's attorneys offering the prejudicial character of evidence to be introduced, affecting O'Sullivan's case, in case he should be tried with the other defendants, but which would be admissible if he were tried alone. Counsel for Martin Burke also submitted affidavits for a separate trial for the suspect, stating that they were similar in character to those pre- sented in the other cases. A similar application was made in behalf of Frank Woodruff. At the request ot the state's attorney the hearing was adjourned in order to give him time to prepare his argument in opposition to the motion for separate trials. KUNZB'g AFFIDAVIT closed by asking that his counsel be allowed to see the minutes ot the testi mony before the grand jury on which he was indicted in order that he might prepare his defense. The state's attorney asked that the motions for separate trials be passed upon first. Counsel for Detective Dan Coughlin then read a long affidavit setting forth what he believed to be the theory of the prosecution, and saying that, if fol- lowed out, and his client were tried with the other defendants, it would involve the introduction ot testimony which, while inapplicable to Coughlin, would nevertheless prejudice his case. Council then read an affidavit by Coughlin himself, asserting his inno cense of any complicity in the crime. Counsel for Patrick O'Sullivan nest read an affidavit by his client, asserting that certain evidence to be introduced against others of the would be prejudicial to his case and also assert- ing his innocence of the crime charged.

A singular case of double life came to light here today with the filing of the papers in a cane against the estate ot Richard Combs. In 1854 Combs married Miss Mollie Henges in Cook county, 111., and the two settled on a farm in the western part of that state, where they lived until Combe eloped with a domestic, Anna Bunn, and came to Kansas. Combs and Anna Bunn lived in Wichita as man and wife, moving in the highest society until his death a few weeks ago. Combs wns in the prepared paint business here and was worth over Recently hie former wife came here and estab- lished her claim, securing the entire control of the property left by the de- ceased. Suit is now brought by Miss Bunn for for wages, she never having been discharged as servant. She has three children ot which Combs was father, and it she could produce a marriage certificate they would be en titled to THE CRONIN SUSPECTS. They Demand Separate and SI a to Their CHICAGO, Aug. at 10 o'clock there was a slight rustle at the door of Judge McDonnell's private trance and the crowd tip-toed in ex- pectancy as a deputy sheriff entered the room and cleared the way for tho ap- pearance of the prisoners who were to answer to the grave charge of murder. A moment later the door was thrown wide open and the traveler Burke, the loquacious the taciturn Coughlin, the remonstrating Beggs, the silent O'Sullivan and the indignant Kunze entered and took their seats facing the court ond in the order named. "What is the business before the oourt this queried Judge Mc- Connell, as innocently as though he did not expect the Cronin case to be called until some time next year. WAHT SEPABATB TBIAU1.

The train was heavily loaded with Grand Army veterans and their friends, bound for the Milwaukee encampment, and consisted ot several extra coaches. By the spreading of the rails three coaches, two Pullman sleepers and the dining car were thrown from the track and down a steep embankment, a dis- tance of probably forty feet. Word was immediately telegraphed to this city for assistance and a special train was sent at once with a dozen surgeons on board. The wrecker was also sent out to clear the track. Those most seriously injured were brought to this city and taken to St, Mary's Hospital, where their were properly attended to. In all there were probably fifty persons hurt, and though none were killed outright, the following are in a very dangerous con- dition: THE INJURED. Mrs. 8. 8.
