Cincinnati, Feb. 18.—The strongest link in the chain of evidence againat the two murderers of Pearl Bryan has made its appearance. George Jackson, private coachman for Maj.

One of the men rode on the seat with Mm and threatened to kill him if he ever saidj anything about the ride. The other, two men were inside with a woman. Arriving at a thicket the men got out, helped the woman out and took her into the bushes. The driver heard suppressed cries of a woman, became frightened and hastened to the city. George H. Jackson was taken to the Jail and picked out Jackson and Walling among thirty other prisoners. He first went to Walling, looked up and down from head to feet, in front and all around him, and said: "I am sure this is the man who sat on the seat with me." Then he added: "If I could hear his voice I could tell better." Walling was bid to speak and to repeat the threats that he is alleged to have made to the negro. The negro said: "That's his voice, only It is a little stranger." As to Jackson he went around and selected several men that seemed to be about Jackson's size. He said: "I did not see this man except when he got out of the carriage in the darkness, and I only know about his size; bring him up to this other man." Jackson was brought up by Walling. The negro said: "This looks like the other man, I'd like to hear his voice. I can't be sure of this manjthat sounds very much like the voice of the other man who told me to turn the carriage around and who -helped the woman out, only it was a great deal harsher. The negro went with the detectives on the road to where he took those people the night of the murder. The police consider the identification com-f&te a<tfar as concerned. IT GROWS APACE. ftaptd Spread of the Deaeome«» Oh der In America, Minneapolis, Feb. 14. — Soberly attired deaconesses wearing the wfflte ribbon of their order, gathered from all parts of the country at Wesley M. B. church yesterday for the purpose of holding their ninth annual conference. This society has been but recently organized, when the age of the Methodist church, with which it is affiliated, is considered. Nine years ago it had its inception as an auxiliary to aid the church in philanthropic work of all kinds, and particularly among the needy and sick. It has rapidly grown until to-day the order owns thirty-one hospitals and homes widely scattered throughout the country. The number of deaconesses has increased to 527,000, and the total value of their property over and above debt is $548,-900. During the year 1895 this society made over 200,000 calls upon sick and needy persons and 9,000 meetings were held. The number of patients cared for in hospitals was 1,830, and the patients cared for in homes was 2,500. The hospitals in which deaconesses are at work include As» bury and Cincinnati, costing $25,000; Portland, Or.; Omaha, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Washington. Kansas City and Boston. There are two orphanages under the deaconesses' management at Lake Bluff, 111., and Urbana, 111. NO GOOD IN MINNESOTA. A Firm That Is Said to Be Doing; * Wholesale Wolf-Scalp Business. St. Paul, Feb. 14.—Gov. Clough this morning received a letter from Secretary of State Olney, enclosing a communication from Leon Platky, publisher of Cloaks and Furs, New York, stating that large quantities of fox and wolf heads were being shipped into Chicago from all parts of the country by a company organized for their collection, and that the object was to smuggle these heads into Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming for the purpose of collecting the bounties offered by those states. The letter was sent out as a warning to those states. Sush a shipment would do little good in this state under the new law, which requires that not only the head, but the carcass of the wolf killed shall be exibited to the county auditor. The old law allowed $5 for the scalp of a male and $15 for the scalp of a female wolf, and nothing but the head was required. The tugglers are underjthg impression ev-ly that that law is still In force. Fishermen Licensed.

Eben Peek of New York, lumber dealer, made an assignment. The directors of the Wheeling & Lake Erie railroad have elected A. G. Blair of Toledo president of the company. A direct line of railway will be built from Denver to Cripple Creek. The road will probably be run by electric power. The members of the Bar Iron association are again in secret session at Cleveland to further consider plans for advancing prices on "their product. The New Orleans council has passed the free wharfage measure recommended by the joint committee of the commercial bodies. The wharves have derived large profits from the fees. The belief is that the two existing companies which now control every street railway in Cleveland, both electric and cable, will be consolidated before summer ends. Crescendo, the great three-year-old of Nagle-Burke's Pueblo stable, will never face the starter again. He was so seriously injured that ever since he has not been able to stand up. The Canada Club of Chicago has endorsed a move looking to the securing of "Chicago day" at the Montreal exposition which opens on May 24, the queen's birthday, and closes on Oct 12. Richard B.

In his statement he said that he found in the surrey instead of a round hitching weight, a piece of railroad rail about a foot long, while waiting for the return of the two men who had gone away with the girl at the place of the murder. It had two holes through it. A leather strap was fastened to one of these holes. That he used for a hitching weight and then ran away as fast as he could run until fie came home. Right here is the great point in the chain of circumstances. It was just precisely such a piece of railroad iron that was wrapped up in Jackson's bloody coat when it was fished out of a sewer catch basin. What emphasizes this evidence is the fact that this coat being wrapped around a piece of railroad iron has never been mentioned in the newspapers. Detectives Grim and McDermott have found the surrey and gray horse nsed by Jackson and Walling at Mullen's stables, on Walnut Hills. The colored driver identified the horse and Burrey. The vehicle still had the blood stains over its seat A bloody lead pencil was found in the bottom of the «surrey. . .. . . ait.
