Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - January 15, 1890, Burlington, Iowa BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. BURLINGTON, IOWA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15, 1890. [Price: 15 Cents pee Week. ALEUT AND CONFIDENT OF VICTORY. Aliform’* Presence Inspires Enthusiasm the Rankg of His Followers— Widespread Conviction of His Re-Election—The Sit nation. ant Governor-elect Poymeer, Secretary of State Jabkson and wife; State Superintendent Sabin and wife; Auditor Lyons wife; State Treasurer Twombly and wife; Railroad Commissioners Day, Campbell and Smith and wives; D. N Richardson, Senator Allison and a number cf other prominent men of both political parties. TO OPPOSE ALLIS OH. in ex- flptolal to Th* Hawk-Bt*. Des Moines, Jan 14 —As was pected the deadlock continued to day. After the adjournment of the house both parties held caucuses and as a result three of the conference committees have been in session all the afternoon. Whatever suggestions they may make may not be ratified by the several caucuses. Members are very reticient to express any opinion as to th* situation. A prominent state official to-day said the cause of the deadlock was that both sides were afraid the other would take the advantage after the temporary organization in the matter of the contests and that this was especially true of the democrats. What was sought for principally was time. He thought if the contest cases were all dropped and an agreement entered into to let the house stand as it no further troublo would be experienced. Senator Allison has been the center of an admiring throng of friends all day, receiving every assurance of the hearty support of the republicans. His chances will not be injured by the deadlock, democratic reports to the contrary notwithstanding. Governor Boies is also much sought after, and the democrats have been asking his advice. He does not desire, however, to fight and is doubtful if his advice would have much weight. There is but little prospect of the inauguration of the governor this week. The republicans members of the house consider themselves masters of the situation to-night. Said one of the members of the conference committee: “We have got poss -ssiorj, and that is a large point in our favor They did not object to Representative Lane calling the house to order, or to D C. Kolp calling the roll, therefore these gentlemen are the speaker and the clerk of tile house, and they can't be ousted.” Both Lane and Kolp are republicans, and they will act until some arrangement in regard to temporary organization is completed The democratic leaders says that they propose to have the speaker, and the republicans say that Mr. Lane will act as speaker in spite of the democrats until a speaker is elected So the battle opens, and unless the democrats desire to in augurate Governor Boies more than they care for the speakership of the house, the deadlock will nndoubtedly continue for some time. Startling Anne attenuant From Cedar Sapid*. Special to Th*awk-Bt*. Des Moines, Jan. 14 —A dispatch received here to-night from Cedar Rapids says Judge Rothrock is coming here to enter upon an active canvass for the United States senatorship against Allison. The dispatch says if Allison gets the nomination Senator Smith, of Linn, will stay out of the caucuss and vote for Rothrock. _, FRUITLESS BALLO LING. THE MATTEI OF FLORIDA SVAMF LARIS RAISES A BREEZE QI TRE SENATE. Other Proceedings bi the Senate—General Congressional Gossip—The Mormons and the Idaho Constitution—Washington News. the Th* Homa and graal* Proceeding*. Des Moines, Jan. 14 —After being called to order this morning the house began on the fifth ballot for temporary secretary. The ballot resulted as yesterday, 50 to 50. After taking five more ballots, which resulted the same way, the house adjourned till ten o’clock tomorrow morning. Gar .liner, of Washington (republican), is quite sick and occupies a cot in the house chamber. The first thing done in the senate this morning was the swearing in of the new members. After the introduction of a few resolutions the senate adjourned until two o'clock this afternoon to give the democrats time to caucus on candidates for senate positions. THE SENATE. In the senate this afternoon the election of officers was taken up, it resulted in the election of all the republican caucus nominees are as follows: Secretary W. R. Cochrane; first assistant, W. F. Carlton; second assistant, Chaa. W. Beverly; enrolling clerk, Miss Lou Young; engrossing clerk, Miss Nannie Stull; sergeant-at-arms, Peter Melindy; bill clerk, Miss Margaret Mills; postmistress. Miss Maud Murray. The other.minor offices were filled by republicans. After the passage of a number of resolutions, adopting rules, etc, the newly elected officers were sworn in and a committee consenting of Floyd and Clyde, of Mitchell, was appointed to notify the governor of the permanent organization. The senate then adjourned. THE STATE UNIVERSITY. of—A and THE SITUATION REVIEWED. Re**** In rad About th* Hon**—Joint Resolution No. I. Special to Th* Hawk-Kvb. Deb Moines, Jan. l l —The scene in the house chamber was very interesting this morning. At IO o’clock, the hour for couvening, every member was there. Mr. Gardner, of Washington county managed to get here, even though suffering severely from la grippe, and his vote was faithfully cast with the republican side. A cot was placed for him in the northwest corner of the hall of the house, and there with his attending physician he remained until tho close of the session Both parties had just come from caucus fully determined not to give an inch, so it became plainly apparent after the nineth ballot for clears: that nothing could be done. Immedia ely after adjournment both parties went into caucus again. The republicans soon came out, saying they had done nothing, but gave the impression that they had reaffirmed their determination to hold out for victory. Several republican representatives say they will remain here until the next legislature convenes before they will yield a point dishonorably. They are in favor of a fair compromise a temporary organization, as their proposition showed, but as for surrender they they will none of it. Several democrat ic members have expressed themselves as strongly as the republicans, but as the independents can change sides without any trouble there is more prospect of the democratic and the independent side giving way than the repuolican side. It was given out by a number of the democratic caucus that their representatives on the conference committee would make a proposition to the republicans to-day, but the nature of it could not be learned. Much of the caucusing and campaign iog is now carried on at the state house In consequence cf the snow of Sunday many of the members have sought residences on the east side of the river and find it more convenient than traveling a mile every time they come to a session. The following is Joint Resolution No. I, introduced by Senator Dodge: Be it resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa: Whereas, It is proposed to commemorate the landing of Columbus four cen turies ago by a world's fair to be held in 1892 in some great city in the United States: and as it is tho purpose of this great bazaar to enable the citizens to be come fully acquainted with the boundless resources of our magnificent country, and to enlighten them on its grandeur and potentialities, it is not only within the province of this body, but it is an imperative duty of the citizens of Iowa to unite their influence, their efforts and their liber in securing the location of Baidar air in a western city; therefore Resolved. That we, themembers of the twenty third general assembly of the state of Iowa emphatically declare and favor the west as against the east; that we favor the selection of Chicago as the city most accessible and convenient to the people of our country ; that in the queen city of the west we recognize a truly representative American city typifying the thrift, push and advancement of the raging, rushing, restless nineteenth century, a city that challenges the admiration of the world for its enterprise, ambition aud progress, and whose hearts and homes are large enough to welcome and entertain the multitudes of her visitors, great as they may be: a city that alands, as it were, at the gateway be Aa Institution to Fs*l Proud Splendid Showing. Speoml to Th* Hawk-Ktb. Iowa City, Jan. 14 —The faculty the reg* nts of the State University may well feel proud of the increased number of students this term has brought. An exact estimate of the total number cannot bo made as students keep dropping in every day, but the number is about. seven hundred and fifty, forty of whom [/Proclaim are new students, who have just cornein this term. This shows an increase of one hundred and twenty-five over this time last year. A large appropriation will be asked for this year from the legislature, principally for the purpose of putting some new buildings and repairing the old. The citizens of Iowa City have shown their appresiation of the university by passing an ordinance granting the use of the city park to the state of Iowa for university purposes. This park is one of the most valuable blocks in the city and is situated at a convenient distance from the university campus. Last fall the Y. M. C. A. decided to erect a building which would cost $25,000. In lees than a month $10,-000 was subscribed by the students themselves. Then the people of Iowa City were asked to assist by subscribing the remainder. A very liberal response was the result and the fund has reached $23 OOO, and tbe building is assured Next fall the building will be commenced and when finished will be presented to the state by the association. After such zealous efforts on the parts of the citizens and the students here it seems highly probable the university will obtain all that has been asked for by her friends and officers from this legislature A SALOON CLOSED. Great Excitement Rn Dubuque Over tbe Knforeenent of Prohibition. Speoial to Th* Hawk-Bt*. Dubuque, Jan. 14.—The largest saloon in Dubuque was closed to day, also a brewery. This is the firs attempt to enforce the prohibitory law" in Dubuque, and great excitement prevails. A Soldier'* Monument. DES Moines, Jan. 14.—The Soldier’s Monument commissioner decided to day to recommend to the legislature that it appropriate $200,000 for a suitable monument in memory of Iowa soldiers who died in the late war. VICTIMS OF THE STORM. Many Families Depilate*-A. Cyclone In Illinois Cairo, Jan. 14 —Besides those whose houses were destroyed in Wickliffe, Kentucky, by the tornado, about fourteen families are entirely destitute, having lost all their goods. Eight were wounded and three are in a critical condition. twenty foot dkifts. St. Paul, Jan. 14.—Severe weather is reported generally throughout the northwest A blizzard is raging at Beard?ley, Minnesota, and the drifts are being piled twenty feet high. Trains and wagon traffic are at a standstill. The first great storm of the season has struck Grand Rrpids, Minnesota, extending all over the upper Mississippi region. At Wabasha, thirteen inches of snow fell. From Neche, South Dakota, comes an account of a blizzard which raged for thirty-seven hours rendering all travel impossible through the heavy drifts. WINO CAUSED A WRECK. Chatham, Ont., Jan. 14.—la yesterday’s storm a flat car was blown on to the main track at Jeanette’s Creek. It rolled rapidly eastward until within two miles of Chatham where it crashed into a construction train. Three men were probably fatally and thirteen others more or less seriously injured. A CYCLONE AT MA CHB URG. Olney, Ills., Jan. 14 —At the village of Machburg Sunday night a cyclone overturned dwelling houses, barns and outbuildings and wrought great damage. The house of Philip Nicholson was destroyed and Mrs. Nicholson was instantly killed and her daughter seriously Aaron McWilliams and a fain Washington, Jan. 14.—Among bills reported in the senate from committees and placed on the calender were the following: To declare unlawful trusts and combinations in restraint of trade and produc tion. (Sherman bill) Authorizing the purchase of a site for a building for the supreme court. Mr. George offered a resolution instructing the committee on finance to enquire into the propriety of reducing the penal bonds required of manufacturers of cigars in all cases, or (at least) where the manufacture is carried on by the manual labor of the manufacturer; referred. The resolutions heretofore offered by Call iu relation to the claims of Florida under the swamp land grant, and in relation to the alleged unlawful selections of land in Florida, were taken up and Call addressed the senate. The burden of his remarks was that the lands which are not swamp and overflowed, but which were fit for cultivation, have been selected under the swamp land act, to the injury of the people’s rights. He asserted that two hundred million acres had been selected and approved, in all the states, as swamp and overflowed lands, while everybody knew no such extent of territory (as large as Europe) consisting of swamp and overflowed lands. Over sixteen million acres which had passed in Florida under the swamp and oveiflowed land act, he asserted eleven million acres were high and dry Mr. Plumb said Florida contained about forty million acres, and more than one half of this had been given by the United States to the state for various purposes. Every single acre of land so grant* d had been placed under the control of the legislature of Florida. Some sixteen or eighteen million acres had been granted as swamp and ovei flowed lands. Senator Call had just told the senate that most of it was not swamp but arable land. 80 much greater was the derelictions in the senators state, if it had betrayed its trust. For himself he would resign his seat if he were to bring forward such a complaint against his own state after being too cowardly to it on the stump within its borders. Plumb went on to say Call had some sessions ago appealed to him as chairman of the committee on public lands to report a bill to ratify and con firm the title to certain railroad lands in Florida. So that the alleged frauds (said Plumb) were to be condoned under cer tain circumstances but were never to be condoned in speech. The senator (he said) had been always in the habit of im pugning the senators,covertly or openly, and he (Plumb) had sometimes been in dined to reply to him but to convict him of falsehood. Mr. Call—I will not be moved, Mr. President, by this extraordinary example of the senator from Kansas to follow his bad manners nor his contemptible methods. He can not have poorer opinion of me than I have of the senator from Kansas. I have not been in the habit of violating the decorum of debate and discussion. But, if the senator thinks by his idle bravado, by his de fense of this vast spoliation of public do main in the interest, of those who have profited by it, that he can intimidate me from defending the rights of the people of my state, I treat him with the scorn and contempt that he deserves. My position is well known in relation to the question in the state of Florida Officials of that state are as honorable and honest as the senator from Kansas. By their side he would sink into insignificance.    The statements of the senator in relation to their volution of a trust are entirely untrue and as chairman of the committee on public lands (which has jurisdiction over the matter) he should be ashamed not to be better informed in regard to the special circumstances. It is disreputable to the senate that it should have as a chairman of that committee’s fate or who not only defends the interests of boodlers but shows his ignorance on a subject especially committed to him. All the senator has said apout the legislature of Florida is utterly false and untrue and has been said for the purpose of making an attack against me. (Having made a statement as to the grants to Florida for railroad purposes and under the swamp land law, Call proceeded): If the things, he says, were true and if I were as bad a man as he is, as weak a man as he, as vain a man as he is—even if I were all he is himself and all he says I am—still it would remain true that a large number of people have been deprived of their rights on these lands. Dolph, as a member of the committee on public lands, made an explanation and justification on account of that com mitten in the last congress in respect to the resolution of Call on the same sub ject and Call disclaimed, having made or attempted to make the slightest imputation on that committee. Without action on the resolution, the senate after an executive session adjourned. THE HOU8B. McKinley, from the committee of ways and means, reported back a bill to simplify the laws in relation to the coffee tion of revenue. It was ordered printed and recommitted man P. Hotchkiss, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, register of the land office. Senator Manderson to day introduced a bill to increase the limit of the cost of the public building at Omaha to $2,000,-000. Commissioner Groff, of the general and office to day certified to the state of !Nebraska $224,726, this being five per cent of the proceeds of the sale of public ands within the state during the last four years. The house committee on Indian affairs to-day authorized a favorable report on Gifford's bill to accept and ratify the agreement made by the Sisseton and Wahpeton bands cf Sioux Indians, and to grant a right of way to the Chicago, Milwaukee a~.d St. Paul road through the ake Traverse reservation of South Dakota. The senate committee on pensions today unanimously directed the chairman to report a dependent pension biff The title cf the bill is: “A bill granting pensions to soldiers who are incapacitated from the performance of labor, and for providing for pensions to their widows, minor children and dependants. THE MOTION DENIED AS TO COOSHLIN, OSULLIVAN AND BORIE. Judge McConnell’s Reasons for His De-1 clsion—The Sentence—How It was Received—A Motion for a Delay of Execution. MORMON'S OBJECT. Tii*’r Representative Ar ane Agat&at lh* Proposed Idaho Constitution. Washington, Jan. 14.—The committee on territories this afternoon listened to statements of the representatives of the Mormon church, declarative of teachings of the church in support of their argu-ment that the constitution adopted by the people of Idaho for the new state should not be accepted by congress Bishop Budge, president of the Mormon church in Idaho, said he had always been taught to obey the laws of the land, and in forty-two years experience with Mormons he never knew any teaching to the contrary. Mormons, he said, were taught to believe in the divine inspiration of the constitution of the United States, and thus believing, he said, the Mormons had a higher reverence for it than other citizens. The practice of polygamy is de creasing. On the subject of the blood atonement, Budge said there was no such principle held or taught by the Mormon church. Delegate Caine presented the declaration of the officials of the church, sent out from Salt Lake City December 12, 1889, of the teachings and doctrines of the church. Governor Snoup, of Idaho, said the expenses of the state government for Idaho will necessitate the increase in the tax rate from four to five and three-quarter mills Ex Governor Stevenson said if the Mormon church does not teach publicly or privately the obligations of plural marriages, an official declaration to that effect from the church authorities in Salt Lake will settle the question of cit zern-ship in Idaho under the proposed constitution. They have, he said, a remedy for the evils complained of in their own hands. _ WAYS AND MEANS. Chicago, Jan. 14—Judge McConnell this afternoon in the Cronin case granted the application of Kunze for a new trial, but denied the motion ss to the other defendants, Coughlin, Burke and O'Sullivan. Judge McConnell in his decision said, in part: I think it would be mere pretense for me to take more time to deliberate on this matter. I would not arrive at any different conclusion in several days than I have now. It has weighed upon my mind during the trial that the defendants should have a fair trial. Sj* ce its conclusion it has weighed upon my mind whether they had a fair trial; whether the jury had reached such a conclusion that within the limits a judge has a right to question whether the verdict was a just one. Judge Wing suggested that the defendants were prejudiced by not having been granted a separate trial, yet the trial disproves this because the theory is generally accepted by the public and urged by the state that the conspiracy was formed in Camp 20 was not accepted by the jury as shown by the acquittal of Beggs. As to the jury, of course it is more satisfactory to a trial judge to have a jury of men absolutely without opinion as to the merits of the case and this course was followed in securing the first four jurors, but^ was dropped when it became evident th&t it would be impossible to obtain such a jury in the county. The impression of a trial judge as to the character of a juror from his whole examination would be taken by a higher court, as the judgment of a jury from the manner in which the question was approached. I am convinced if anyone watched the manner of the trial Judge during tbis trial they would have been certain the court was determined to have a fair jury. As to the evidence the judge is not called upon to say whether if on the jury he would have come to the same conclusion. As to one of these de- Attomey Longenecker decided early in the evening to take immediate advantage | of the ruling of Judge McConnell and at once gave orders to Sheriff Matson to have the prisoners removed to the penitentiary. SCANDALIZED THE SISTERS THey Wait Nob* of the Prolit* of Ut* | Myon-Gtltttor* Fight Chicago, Jan. 14.—Mother Superior M. Frances, cf the Catholic Order of I Servile Sisters, who presides over an educational convent and orphanage, was! re Ty indignant when she heard that the j order was to receive part of the proceeds of a fistic exhibition. ‘We are shocked, horrified!” she exclaimed with conquerable warmth “The idea of connecting our order with a prize fight! No one was authorized to j use our name on the show bills. Who is Billy Myers, pray? I never heard of j him. And this Harry Gilmore! Where! can I find them? Did you say Parson Davies? He cannot be a clergyman, surely. Oh! a sporting man. I really don’t know what that means.” Mike McDonald, whose wife eloped with a priest, was called on to straighten out the tangle in which Parson Davies's manager had involved next week’s soft glove contest between Billy Myers, of Streator, and Harry Gilmore, the ex light weight champion. How well he succeeded is not yet known. THE CRY OF EXCITED STUDENTS ON THE STREETS OF LISBON. Possibilities of a Revolution at Any Moment — The British Legation Stoned — The New Ministry— Opinions of the Press. A MASONIC HORROR A Candidate WMH* Searching For “Light,” I* Fatally Injured Huntington, W. Va, Jan. 14—Rev. J. W. Johnson, of the M. E. church, South, of this city, died at the parsonage Sunday morning at I o'clock. On Friday evening last, in company with Rev. W. F. Marshall, of the Episcopal church of this city, Mr. Johnson was passing through the ceremonies cf the Royal Arch Degree in the Huntington Chapter of the Royal Arch Masons. During tne ceremonies it seems it was necessary that he descend a vault thirteen feet deep by means of a rope tackle suspended from the ceiling above. Two other men had descended the vault previous to Mr. Johnson, one of whom was Mr. Marshall. After preparing th* tackle and Mr. Johnson had started to descend, the knot fastening th* tackle to the lower block slipped, gave way and Mr. Johnson fell to the bottom of the vault. He was immediately taken out and medical aid was summoned. His injuries seemed to be of a painful, though not dangerous nature. He was removed to his home and received the careful attention of his friends and Masonic brethren. Much to the surprise of all, and to the unutterable Oporto, Jan. 14.—Crowds wandered through the streets last night cheering for the independence and integrity of Portugal and shouting ‘‘‘Down with England.” A crowd attacked and stoned the British consulate. The authorities have since placed a police guard at the consulate to protect it from further molestation. The civil governor has forbidden holding the contemplated meeting of students to protest against English demands upon Portugal. ENGLAND DENOUNCED. Paris, Jan. 14 — Papers have unani mously condemned the policy followed by England in the dispute with Portugal as a violation of the act of the Berlin conference. Madrid, Jan. 14 —Papers of this city roundly abuse England for the stand she took in forcing Portugal to accede to her demands relative to tbe territory in East Africa. _ GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS. and grandchildren and great grandchildren and great-gTeat grandchildren.

A DASTARD'S BLOW. br rn Keo- Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, moved the house go into a committee of the whole for the consideration of a bill to provide for townsite entries of lands in Oklahoma. This was antagonized by Adams of Illinois, who wished the house to consider the Silcott matter, and the motion was defeated by a vote of 65 to 97. Bland demanded tellers. Tbe friends of the Oklahoma bill were again defeated, 90 to 108, and Adams called up tbe Silcott report accompanied by a bill appropriating $75,-000 to reimburse the members.

Ketchum, of New York, importer and manufacturer of leather asked that the present duties upon such goods be retained, Jam*s campbell representing the window glass manufacturers asked for the restoration of the tariff of 1883. Britton Richardson a New Jersey silk manufacturer wanted a duty of fifty per cent instead cf twenty per cent imposed upon silk hat trimmings. He complained of the recent decision of the supreme court declaring silk ribbons used ex elusively for hat trimmings dutiable at twenty per cent. State Senator Griggs, of New Jersey, said the silk trade regarded this decision as the most serious assault ever sustained by it. Chairman McKinley sai I he would caff the attention of the committee to the matter and consent was secured to take up this proposition immediately a9 a sep arate question. W. T. Wakeman, representing the Cattle Grower’s association,asked for a duty of one cent and one-half per pound on unrefrigerated hides. There were maiiy sections of the west where hides were frequently burned for fuel, the price being too low to warrant their shipment. General Washington New*, THE PRESIDENT’S RECEPTION. First of the evening state receptions of President Harrison’s administration was quite a brilliant affair. It was given in honor of the diplomatic corps whose members attended more generally than usual. The president was assisted in re ceiving the guests by Mrs. Harrison, Mrs. Morton and nearly all the ladies of cabinet household. PUBLIC MONEY SURRENDERED. Secretary Windom’s call for ten per cent of the amount of public money held by national banks expires to mor row. 80 far only eighteen banks cut of the one hundred and thirty called upon have responded. The amount surrendered, however, is far in excess of the amount called for, as some of the banks gave up the full amount held by them and a number of others surrendered all above the amount necessary for the transaction of current public business. The total amount of bonds purchased to date in liquidation of these deposits is $6,711,500. The future course of the de uartment in this matter will be determined in a few days. FREE COINAGE OF SILVER. The national executive committee ap pointed at the St. Louis silver convention met here to-day. A sub-committee consisting of Fitch, Pixley and Barbour was appointed to draw up a plan of work for the executive committee to pursue during the meeting. A permanent bureau will be established in this city to look after the interests of free coinage. The committee of five appointed to draw up and publish an address to congress and to the people will be in attendance at this meeting and will probably issue their addresses immediately after con herring with the members of the execu tive committee._ AN EDITOR ASSAULTED. at Hannibal, Missouri, for interment.

Jones is a son of Major Jones, superintendent of the National Waterworks company, and Hammerslough is the proprietor of the Kansas City Globe. Hammerslough did not strike back, but contended himself with guarding his face. The men were finally separated and Jones was taken to the police station where Hammerslough pre ferred charges of disturbing the peace and Jones gave bail for $100.

His insufficient.    .    *    „ I remains will be taken to his former home The first evidence against John Kunze is that of James, who saw him in a window across the street and never saw him again until in court. I do not think his identification is reliable. I also discredit the identification of William Mertes, who claimed to have seen Kucz one evening. Niemann, a saloonkeeper, did not identify Kucz positively. This murder sprang out of Irish politics some way, it is not necessary to even conjecture how, but there is no motive of Kunze to have taken part in the crime. Even if Mertes and James were to be believed and Niemann had been more positive there is no difficulty in reconciling these facts with his innocence. I mean to say he might have been in the Clark street flat and all other places and still be innocent. I believe the verdict of the jury was not only unwarranted by the evidence but was an absurdity. As to the other defendants I overrule the motion for a new trial. Little Kunze was on his feet in an instant, blurting out in his broken English: “Thankyou, your honor; I am very much obliged for your kindness.” Your are not indebted to me for any kindness,” said the court. “Is there any motion for an arrest of judgement?” asked the court. Mr. Forrest knew of no ground for one, but made it to have it on record. The court overruled it and asked if the prisoners had anything to say. There was a moment suspense and then Dan Coughlin arose and said in firm tones: ‘‘Your honor, I am innocent. I was convicted by perjuries.” O’Sullivan's voice trembled slightly as he said: ‘‘I have not much to say. I protest my innocence before God and man, and the time is not. far distant when it will be shown I was convicted by a prejudiced jury and perjured evidence. I do not ask for mercy; I ask for justice. I have not had justice.” Burke stopped chewing gum long enough to say :    “I am innocent. I al ways knew that in England they allow perjurers to go on the stand and convict innocent men. But I never knew it was done in America.” A moment’s silence followed and then the court said:    “Will the prisoners rise?” The three men arose again and the court imposed the sentence in the following words:    “Following and con forming the verdict of the jury, the judgment of the court is that you be taken to the penitentiary at Joliet and there be confined for the term of your natural lives.” Coughlin and Burke heard the words without a change of countenance, but O’Sullivan's lips quivered and his face had a worn and pinched expression. The defense was granted sixty days to file a bill of acceptance, It was announced that Lawyers Forrest, Donahue and Wing had been retained to take the case to the supreme court in the March term. Forrest asked the usual stay cf execution until a supersedeas could be secured. The state’s attorney protested vigorously, demanding that the prisoners be sent at once to Joliet. Judge McConnell intimated he would be willing to grant a stay for the sake of humanity if he were mire he had the authority to do so, saying he had given the matter some attention and could find no authority. Forrest made quite an extended appeal showing what injustice would be done if the defendants were compelled to go to the penitentiary and were afterwards given a new trial and acquitted. He also said all other judges in Cook county except Anthony had been in the habit of granting a stay when assured the case would be taken up. Judge McConnell finally announced he would defer decision until he could consult other judges to find out on what authority they acted. Kunze was then admitted to bail in a sum of $2,000. The state’s attorney opposed the motion for bail and subsequently contended for $20,000. Judge McConnell, however, did not coincide and explained that he would Nave discharged Kunze if there were no new evidence against him, but the state’s attorney    informed him there was some. State’s Attorney Longennecker intimated if they let Kunze stay in jill a Important Meeting or the lnt*r**te Commerce Railway Amidation.

St. Louis Republic. “Do you see those large copper brads in the sole of my shoe?” asked a gentle man as he held up to view the sole of one of hie shoes On being assured in the affirmative he said: “To those simple brads alone I attribute my present good health. For years I was an invalid, subject to dyspepsia, neuralgia, headache, and o'her innumerable pains, and traveled the country over in search of health. In traveling out west, among the Indian tribes, I was struck with their remarkable health, and especial? th*ir exemption from the maladies that afflict me; and also with the fact.that the strongest and healthiest went bare footed altogether. “I sought an explanation of the matter and by continued observation and study was finally led to the conclusion that the aches and pains to which civilized is heir are owing to the manner in which we insulate our bodies from Mother Earth Science is every day more clearly demonstrating that electricity is the vitalizing constituent of our bodies, and that thia globe of ours is a mighty battery. continually generating and discharging electricity. Now, I .reasoned, if this was correct, the secret of the Indian’s health was in his bare feet, which exposed his whole body to the vitalizing influence of the electrical earth curran ta; while my ill health was attributed to my feet being insulated from there currents. Acting on this hypothesis I sought to restore the broken connection by inserting these brads in the soles of my shoes, and the result, I must say, was astonishing My feet, which formerly were nearly always cold, soon became warm and moist; my health began shortly to improve, and in a few months I was entirely relieved of all my pains and have ever since enjoyed good health.
