I take this method of returning my heartfelt thanks to the frien(£ and neighbors who so kindly lent their assistance during the illness and at the burial of my husband. May the God of the widow and the orphan shield them from such afiUct-iona Ann McMxANa AI^BlOlf, INO» —Orlando Slessman, charged with knoclung a man down aiid robbing him, was sent up last week from Whitley county for a term of eight years. CIRCUIT AND SUPREME COURT JUDGE IN THE UST. Prominent Citizens Named as Among the Guilty Parties. Unlawful Fishing for the Finny Tribe a Fisher of Men. by Grand Jury luvestivatlnff* MORE ABOUT BOCKESTO'8 BUTCHERY. It is generally believed that in every county of the state there can be found violations of the fish law in force, and in some places efforts have have been made by individuals and organized associations to break up such violations of the statutes in that regard. It would not be difficult, perhaps, to fasten upon some citizens of Noble county, such offences, and from the fact that such violations of aw have been permitted, many have come to regard the law as a dead letter, and violate it with impunity. Up in Steuben coimty, among the numerous lakes there, doubtless violations of the law are frequent, and during the past week great excitement prevailed when information was handed in charging some of the leading citizens of that covmty, to the number of from one hundred and fifty to two hundred men, with violations of this law. Among the names on the list is that of a minister of the gospel at Pleasant Lake we understand, and other prominent citizens are named as among the guilty. What is cheekier still is that the names of Judge McBride of this circuit, and Judge Best, of the Indiana Supreme court, head the list. Judge McBride was justly indignant at this accusation, as none believed that he would knowingly and wilfully violate any law of the state, and he immediately ordered the grand jury reconvened to investigate the matter, so that no guilty man might escape. If the parties named are guilty the grand jury wiU have no trouble in getting evidence against them, and if the charges are ground less, and made for a sinister purpose, the parties making the charge xm-der oath will be indicted and made to answer for their crime. In referring to this matter the Angola Republican last week said: Considerable excitement was occasioned in the court room Saturday forenoon when there was handed in a list of about 150 names of prominent persons who had been guilty of violating the fish law. At the head of the list appears in letters bold the names of Judge McBride of the circuit court and Judge Best, one of the commissioners of the supreme court The court was justly indignant and at once ordered the grand jury to be reassembled to examine into the matter, and to indict all persons who had been guilty of criminal libel in making false chargea The grand jury met yesterday and will probably be kept busy several days in investigating the question of the guilt or innocence of several hundred of the most respected citizens of Steuben county. Bailiffs have been kept busy in summoning defendants and witnesses who will be required to state xmder oath what they know about spearing fish. At this writing we do not know what the investigation by the grand jury has resulted in, but knowing the men as we do, and considering the high positions they hold as judicial officers of the state, we are forced to the conclusion that the charges, so far as Judge McBride and Judge Best are concerned, are without foundation in fact and made from impure and sinister motivea However, the matter will serve as a warning to those who are in the habit of violating the law with impunity, and will cause them to "look a little out" Makes no Drunkards. The temperance people—and we should all be temperance people are probably right when they say that a great many popular medicines are based on rum, and tend to induce drinking habits. Whosoever takes Parker's Tonic is safe from that danger. It is a wholesome in-vigorant, and restores the disorderec. functions of the stomach and liver without «training nature or perverting it Many clergymen and tem peranoe workers have testified to thia It is as delicious to the palate as it ' is effective in curing disease. LAFAYEHE RILEY IDENTIFIED AS THE MURDERER. The Men Who Escaped from Officers Albion now Held for some Petty Theft. near For Thb Nkw Eka. MY BOYHOOD'S HOME. by violkt k. kinq. Our readers are interested in the Adams county butchery to which we called their attention last week, and since then another arrest has followed, vrith the following results as given by the Fort W^ayne Journal'. Another chapter of the tragedy has thrown the populace into a frenzy. Deputy Sheriff McConnell brought to Decatur on Friday afternoon's train from the south, a man named Lafayette Riley, a wood-chopper, foreman of Adams' gang, against whom the most sensational evidence was developed yesterday. Riley is a single man, aged about 35 years, and has been living two miles south-west of the town of Monroe. He has been a steadfast friend of Fred Richards, the big bully,'who so narrowly escaped the vengeance of the Decatur mob. Sor: ) months ago he boarded ot the Riverside House, Decatur, and Jim Midton, the proprietor, says he jumped his board bill, carrying off his hand baggage. * * * * There was present at the examination William Wagoner, who had first been robbed before the Bockesto house was visited. He testified that the man Riley closely resembles the robber of his house, and it transpired that the boots he wore fitted perfectly into the tracks made by the thieves. But the most substantial evidence was that of the widowed Mra Bockesto. Prosecuting Attorney France took the prisoner into a dark room and there put a mask on him. Mrs. Bockesto was then brought in and matches were struck, as they were on the night of the murder in the room where man and wife had been rudely awakened. Mrs. Bockesto was called to look on the prisoner. She said: "If you were to take him to a photographer's you couldn't get a better picture of the murderer." A great sensation followed this declaration. Of course this testimony must strike a person familiar with evidence in criminal cases as not entirely satisfactory but it is strengten-ed by the falsity of the prisoner's statements in accounting for his whereabouts immediateley after the murder. He claims to have not been at Willshire, Ohio, the morning after the murder, when there was testimony at hand that he had really been there. He said that he had not been at Richard's house, when the contrary could be shown. Riley was arrested at his home. * « « Crookshank and Cochenon, the men whe escaped from the deputy United States marshal at Albion, are not held in jail for the murder but on the charge of stealing some penknives and other small articles from the store of Niblock & Cravrford at Decatur. On this charge it is said they can be convicted and must serve a term in prison before they are delivered over to the federal au-thoritiea Thousands Say So. Mr. T. W. Atkins, of Girard, Kan., writes: "I never hesitate to recommend your Electric Bitters to my customers, they give entire satisfaction and are are rapid sellera" Electric Bitters are the purest and best medicine known and will p^itively cure kidney and liver complaints. Purify the blood and regulate the bowela No family can afford to be without them. Tliey will save hundreds of dollars in doctor's bills every year. Sold at fifty cents a bottle by Huston & Molen. The mem'ry of ray boyhood's homo, I never can iorget; The wealth of roses—creeping vines— Methinks I see them yet; The bushes where the robins lived. And paid their rent in song— Tis for the scenes of youthful days, My weary heart now longs. The elm-tree and the grape vine swing, The brooklet in the glade, That rippled o'er the pebbles bright, And sweetest music made. No matter where my feet shall stray. Nor 'mid what scenes I roam, There's none shall seem one-half so dear. As those of boyhood's home. How oft I dream of sunny hours. Spent 'neath the cloudless skies, Till mingled thoughts of grief and joy Bring tear-drops to my eyes. I think of friends so ioved and true, Whom I shall never meet, Again within that cherished place. Of boyhood's fond retreat. GREEN—Nancy Green, wife of Porter Green, died at her home near Cromwell, Indiana, May 2, 1884, aged 62 years, 11 months and 14 days. The funeral was preached at Cromwell, Sunday morning. May 4, to a large concourse of neighbors and friends by Rev. Tom C. Neal, of the M. E. church. The deceaseed was the mother of our townsman, Newton W. Green, and was a very estimable lady. BENWARD—On Wednesday evening. May 7, 1884, at the home of her parents in Jefferson township, Miss Ida Benward,of consumption, aged about 23 years. The deceased was the daughter of Mortimer Benward, of this county, and was an estimable young lady, beloved by all who knew her. She had been an invalid for some time, but bore her sufferings with quiet resignation, and at last passed peacefully to that land beyond the dark river of death. She was buried on Friday, Elza Shaffer attending with the hearse to convey the remains to their resting place in the silent city of the dead. The parents and friends have the sympathy of Thk New Era in their great bereavement. —"The proof of the pudding is in the eating," so says the old adage, and so the proof of the value of a medicine is the opinions of those who have used it Thoa Bass, Sr., of Steelville, says, "I have used Prickly Ash Bitters in my family for two years for ailments of the kidneys, liver and bowels, and I find there is no remedy equal to it" 21ml MOORE—Serena, wife of Leslie Moore, and daughter of Mrs. R. Wiliiama, died M.ay e, 1884, aged 29 years, 10 months and 12 days. She bad been confined to her room with pul-mt.iary consumption for most of the time during the six months previous to her death. Dur-her sickness she was patient and resigned. She said the Lord had heard her prayers, bid her friends an affectionate farewell, urged them to meet her in heaven, and then fell asleep in the arms of Jesus. She leaves her husband, a sou, her mother, a brother, three sisters and many other devoted friends in sadness. FAREWELL. "Lie down in peace to take thy rest! We can no longer watch thy bed. But guide thee day and night instead. And when thine eyes enclosed shall be, Christ in his glory they shall see." "Lie down in peace to take thy rest! Let me betake myself to prayer. Bending Faith's corselet on my breast. Lest Satan find an entrance there. God gave; though now his gift he claim, Still blessed be his holy name!" W. S. Stbwabt, —We are in receipt of the proceedings of a temperance meeting held at Kendallville the latter part of April, which is of some length. We are ^ling to publish the proceedings of such meetings if handed in at the time they are held, but in this case the proceedings of this particular meeting were published in several papers of the county a couple of weeks ago, and we think their republication now would hardly be of interest to our readers. For this reason alone the communication does not appear. —The treatment of Rheumatism and Neuralgia through the blood, by the expulsion of the poisonous acids therefrom, has brought relief and cure in those supposably incurable cases known as chbonic, and where age was said to defy ordinary treatment Mr. W. L. Seymour, of Wil-liston, Vt, writes: "Send Üiree bottles of Athlophoros as soon as this is received. My father, aged 87, has for weeks been badly affected with Rheumatism. He was relieved of all pain in less than 24 hours after he began taking the remedy." l, w. welker, AHORNEY-AT-UW and NOTARY PUBLIC, Albion, Indiana. C^Ofilce up stairs in Clapp's Block. •pHOS. B.

PRICKETT-FRAZURE-On Saturday evening, May 10,1884, at the M. E. parsonage In Albion, by Rev. W. S. Stewart, Mr. Elmer E. Prickett, and Miss Amanda Frazure, all of Albion. —The Columbia City Post has all along contended that moral suasion and not legal prohibition was the proper method of dealing with social vices, but last week it was forced to say that "the report of the grand jury says that the sale of ol^ene literature by our newsdealers has ceased, simply upon the suggestion that it might be unlawful to sell the same. How easily has this vice been suppressed that has been so loudly denounced from pulpit, rostrum, the bar and old women counsels. It reminds us that the world is not so bad after all. Now if we can banish prostitution, tobacco and the tongues of tattling women we will be ready for the liquor question."' There is yet hope that our erratio contemporary may be brought to a knowledge of the truth. Ipdan S Sir¡;eQ&, ION,.................INDIANA. oi^/iDEnsr P'OST HO. 90&, e. A.
