"I saw that the poor Idiots were doomed, and that nothing could save them. I then ran out and gave the alarm, went to my room and pulled on my trousers and then ran through the corridors and aroused the paupers, telling them as plainly as I could what had happened.

The superintendent of the poor has tele- graphed the chairman of the state board of charities to issue a special order for an immediate transfer of the Insane to the state institution. At 12 o'clock seven per- sons had been recaptured by the special deputies. Deborah Dibble was one of the old women in the idiot ward of the institution.

JfTTUt ROCK, Ark., May 9 -The fore- noon session of the Clayton-Brecken ridge investigation yesterday was enlivened by tb? introduction of Powell Clayton as a witLcsa. His testimony related princi- pally to the killing old man Hooper, father of Tom Hooper, now dead, who has been accused of killing John M flayfon out of revenue. Powell Clayton, who was governor In !8ft8, swore his brother had nothiug to do with Hooper's murder. The state militia WHS aleu uot concerned in I lit crime. Hooper, he claimed, had been by negroes in Conway county because of the part taken by him iu the persecution of that race. Maj Clifton R. Breckenridgs was called to the stand by his own counsel for tbe purpose of telling whether or mt he had, previous to the election, taken any steps to prevent fraud at the polls He ivplied he had very carefully cautioned the pol- iticians against crooked work. When asked why he suspected anything of the kind, he replied he heard Bob Pate and Oily Beutly joking about "little horse play" that had beeu made at the- Septem- ber election. A large number of voters from various point! in the district were examined and a number of election les brought to light. At the session last night ex-Senator Matt Henderson of Pine Bluff, a prom- inent Democrat, testified that when he heard of the stealing of the ballot box at Pluminerville he told John Clayton that be would pay the expenses of any man he might nelert to go to Pluinmerville and furnish deposition.1) to show lion each man voted. Mr. Clayton, he said, made no definite Answer at that time, but after- ward Clayton said he hud decided to make the contest iu a legal n.iy at his own ex peuse. Oliver T. Bent ley of Morrillton was pected of being concerned ill the murder, but proved that he was in Morrillton on the night of the assassination. W. J, Stours of Morrillton, captain of the military company at that ure that tbe company waa uot. used fur the purpose of carrying county fur the Demo- crats He swore the state arms were locked in the armory at the time of the presidential election and were not removed until some time afterwards.

The up- per cleat was so nailed that one end was nearly a foot and the other end only a couple of inches above the manger it is supposed that the child got up on the bottom cleAt and reached through the opening between the two cleats and the manger. While in this position the bot- tom cleat broke and the child was raiiRht about tbe neck by the top clent and the manger She was not tall enough to reach the floor, and there she hung until she was strangled. It was in this position that her father found her. The child was only 4 years old.
