Non-Appeiinuiac of Witnesses DeJllj'S tho LEUAMON, Ind., June to the fact of tho uon-arrival of some of the most important witnesses for the state at the Mabbitt triiil but few persons were examined nt the afternoon session. Attachments were issued for those who had failed to put in an appearance. Jo- seph 8. Jenkins, marshal of West Indi- anapolis, was the first witness called. His evidence consisted of the description of the finding of the body in Eagle creek, at a point south of the Vincennes road. Thn body of the child was wrapped in a blue blouse, aud wus first discovered by Oru Hunt, who was hauling sand from a bank near by. The child was also found to have a strap drawn tightly around its neck, to which was attached a heavy iron weight, such as is used in securing horses. Dr. F. E. Manker, coroner of Marion comity, corroborated the testimony of Jenkins as to the condition of the body when discovered. He took the remains to his office, where a post-mortem wus htul Dr. Comingor and himself. It was the belief of witness that death was nut caused from drowning, as npon ex- amination thu lungs were found perfect- ly friable, and had not been filled with water. The neck was found to be dis- located by the pressure of the strap. His impression wus that death resulted from choking, or strangulation, ai a re- sult of the tight strap. A weight such as described by tho first witness wast shown each of the witnesses and identi- fied by them as the iion weight found attached to the child's Henry Thrash, the policeman who ar- rested Mont Mabbitt, was next exam- ined, aud identified the weight shown him as one which had for several months lain about Ward Brothers' liv- ery stable. Frank Giblet, policeman, testified to having seen Mabbitt about Ward's liv- ery stable, and also identified tho iron weight as having been lying at the above stable, After the examination of Pandora Btirmun, who simply testified as to the Mabbitt brothers having roomed at her house, the court adjourned. At this morning's session n number of tho state's witnesses who were not pres- ent yesterday made their After calling the roll Ora Hunt respond- ed us n witijfess. His examination re- lated to the finding of the child's body, which was a mere repetition of the evi- dence of the marshal and coroner. John B. Ward testified as to the Mab- bitt brothers having been in his employ. Ho said thnt on the 19th of November last MiMit Mabbitt took a buggy and left his stable at about 8 o'clock at night, but did not say where he was going. On the morning of the 27th of November after the accounts of the finding of the body of the babe were published, Mont ounie up to him and quietly asked him to say nothing of bin having taken a buggy from the stable at anytime. By reason of this conversation the suspicious of Word were aroused, and later on he said 10 Mont that he (meaning Mont) seemed to be in for it, and asked him what lie was going to do. Mont said that the girl was n woman whom he and his brtt tor Grin had befriended, but that ho did not know what had become of her. He also said he knew nothing about the killing of the child and did not in- tend to run away, as'that would prove him guilty. The witness identified tl e weight'found as belonging to his stable. Mi's. Elizabeth Dickson, proprietor of Little's hotel, testified to the fact of Minnie Mabbit having boarded nt her house, and that on the night of Nov. 10 she was called for and went away iu a buggy with Mont and Oris Mnbbit, who had previously called to see her. Mrs. Alleman, of Indianapolis, who runs a foundlings' home, testified that the Mabbitt brothers had called tp see her about boarding the child of Mnbbitt; that she called at Little's hotel to see the child, but owing to itu delicate condition she refused to receive it. SNAKE IN HIS STOMACH, Boy Swallown the Reptile While Drink- Ing from a Spring. SIDNEY, 0., June nearly two months an 18-year-old son of D. N. Strayer, of Salem township, was decid- edly unwell. His stomach was in a con- tinnal state of rebellion, up matter whether he ate heartily or left his food untouched. Remedies without number were tried in vain, and the family were ingreat trouble over the young man's affliction. In the night he was suffering very much. He could not ent his supper, was exceedingly restless and had a high fever until daylight. He is now im- proving and well he may be, for the cause is removed. When he began vom- iug Dr. S.

A Circular Issued by Assistant Secretary of n Stoppage Put to Foreigners tho United Washington News. WASHINGTON, June plan pre- pared by Assistant Secretary Nettleton, for restricting pauper immigration into the United States, has been submitted to the president and approved, and was yesterday embodied in a circular letter and sent to all steamship companies bringing immigrants to this country. The circular, after reciting the laws designed to regulate immigration, says: The evident disposition of many steam- ship lines, under the pressure of sharp competition, to gather up in Europe and bring to the United States all who, with or without thu aid of others, can pay the now trifling cost of steerage passage, re- gardless of tlioir character or condition, and regardless of our laws, compels on the part of this government a closer scrutiny and the adoption of more com- prehensive measures than have hitherto seemed necessary. While it is the purpose of the govern- ment to enforce those statutes in then- letter and spirit at every port of the United States and along the internation- al boundary, it is desired that as little discomfort nnd distress as possible result to persons affected by the immigration laws. With this view it is important that persons of the prohibited classes be prevented from leaving their homes and crossing the sea, only to be sent bock again on their arrival It is wrong that either the greed of some steamship companies, the mistaken kindness of friends, or the wish of many foreign companies. ELECTRICAL STORM. Great Damage Done In Northern Ohio by Wind and Hall. CLEVELAND, June violent wind and rain storm raged in this city yester day, and was accompanied by extraor- dinary electrical disturbances. Light- ning struck the Hotel Wiknot and jumped from thence tp the trolly wire of an electrical street railroad, severely shocking the occupants of a passing car, and throwing several of them in n heap toward one end. The machinery of the motor was badly damaged. The greaf volume of water that fell covered the street car tracks in many localities with washouts, and traffic was temporarily impeded. At Clyde. O., hail stones fell that HOUSE LETTER BOXES. A Thousand Models and Designs Await- ing the Action of the Committee. WASHINGTON, June thousand house letter boxos of every conceivable size, shape and substance are piled up in Room 50, Floor B, of the postoffice de- partment, awaiting examination by the postmaster general's commission, whe are ready to hold their second session. In the-last few days they have been coming in whole wagonloads, and the secretary has fallen 1'ar behind in the work of recording the successive en- tries. Almost every inventor has sub- mitted two or more models. The col- lection of inventive skill is not monopo- lized by the masculine mind. There are many ingenuous devices from bright women whose ideas ought to be of value in th-' development of an inven- tion that will contribute so much to the comfort of indoor people. It is weK known that an enormous amount of time is lost in the aggregate by letter-camera while waiting for some one to come to tho door or the window to receive mail matter. It is estimated that one-fourth of tlie earners' time is lost in this way. Any device that will save this loss to the service simply adds one-third to the geueial efficiency of the work. For instance, if there are 100 carriers in Washington whose working power is thus diminished to that of sev- enty-five working without such loss of time, any plan by which these seventy- five men can, with the same activity, do the work of 100 wider the present sys- tem adds one-third more actual work performed in the course of the day, which means to the entire country an almost incalculable benefit to all who enjoy tho rapidly increasing facilities ot tho free delivery system. The postmaster general last June ap- pointed a commission to recommend a suitable device for letter boxes to be at- tached to the doors of dwellings. This commission, at the time of its first ses- sion, in the early part of October, 1890, consisted of the following members: John M. Corse, postmaster, Boston, Mass.; C. Van Cott, postmaster, New York city; J. B. Harlow, postmaster, St. Louis, Mo.; Henry Sherwood, postmas- ter, Washington, D. C.; James E. Bell, superintendent delivery, Washington, D. C., and W. B. Smith, acting in- spector in charge, Washington, D. C. A circular had been sent out to in- ventors and manufacturers, setting forth the objects desired, soliciting models, designs, suggestions, etc., and fixing a time and place for their examination. In response to this public notice about 800 models, designs and suggestions were submitted, all of which were care- fully examined. Ten days were spent in this work. No one device seemed fully to satisfy the requirements. The second circular to inventors, Jan. 10, 1891, called for two classes of models; one for a delivery box, and _______________the other for a box having two compart- meamirefl nine inches in circumference. for delivery and the other A passenger couch on the Wheeling and i 'or collecting.

Pltnble Condition of a Large Number of People In St. Louis. ST. Louis, June is claimed that 150 families are starving in North St. Louis. Business in that section of the city is at a standstill, and the laborers are clamoring for bread. Tk e situation is very serious, and something will have to be done to relieve the wants of these men and their families. The laborers are regularly employed on street-clean- ing, hauling and grading work for the city, and that is their sole means of livelihood. Owing to the squabble in the city council over the mayor's ap- pointments, the appropriation bill has not been reported, and hence the street department has quit work, throwing the men and their 'teams out of employ- ment. Grocers in the North End have re- fused further credit to the laborers, and the condition of the poor people is ex- tremely pitiable, severttl families being in a starving condition. Three grocers who had extended credit to the laborers have been forced to assign, and other have grown cautious. desperate laborers are arranging for a demonstration Friday night, when the council meets. The entire number will drive up to the city hall with their teams, as a sort of mute appeal to the city fathers to save them from beggary. BALL. Result of 'Vesterday'8 tn the tmd Association Race.

The important saving of time is not ;he only element of value in this pro- losed reform. By a system of house col- ections correspondence woold be great- ly increased, especially in the large cities. Messengers who cannot be trusted deliver a letter to the nearest street )QX can be assigned to less responsible duties, and the large number ot corre- ipoudents that are more or less confined ;o their houses, particularly in inclement seasons, can enjoy the privilege of de- positing their mail matter without ex- wsure to the weather. Increased corre- ipondonce means greater revenues, that may be applied to other needed improve- ments in the service. With success in ;his effort, then comes the promise of so auch additional comfort and satisfac- ;ipn to the home. The letter box com- mission will probably be able tp arrive at a favorable decision some time this mouth. Blew His Brains Out. BUTLER, Pa., June H.

OF BENEFIT TO MANSFIELD tbe Consolidation of the N or tb west- ern and tbe Walbondlng Valley. The merging into one corporation of the Northwestern Ohio Railway com- pany and the Wjilhondicg Railway company, of which mention has here- tofore been made in this paper, prom- ises to be of even greater advantage to Mansfield than anyone has antici- pated, as it not only gives Mans- field a direct railroad to the coal field? but will open to Mansfield merchants, especiiUly wholesalers, a" rich field which they have been unable to work heretofore 011 account of a lack of railroad facilities. The Toledo a recent refers to the consolidation and what will naturally result from it: The Toledo, Walhonding Valley Ohio railroad sounds well, aaii al- though at present one-half the road exists only on paper, where it has had its being for some years, still it is soon to materialize in all its greatness aud De a big thing for Toledo. The new ine, as was stated in the Bee recently, s the outcome of the consolidation of the Northwestern Ohio railroad and the Walhonding Valley railroad company. The former is the branch of the Pennsylvania system extending from Toledo to Mansfield, and the lat- ter at present has no existence. The Waldhonding company possesses a franchise covering the Toed of the old Waldhonding canal from CoshDctoir to Rochester. The road was never constructed, but the company continued to exist. Now that Pennsylvania has taken hold of the project, the road will proba-- bly be pushed -to an early completion. It was the intention to build from Mansfield to Coshocton, there connecting with the Pan Handle, thence eastward to Martin's Ferry, opposite Wheeling or to Bellaire. This road will make a through line from Toledo to Wheeling and will open up a rich section of country iu Richland, Coshocton, Guernsey and Belimout countieSj that is now without railroad facilities. Toledo will be greatly benefited. PERSONAL MENTION. Milt Keiser is at Shelby to-day. Mrs. Frank Green is visiting at Lex- ington. Prof. F. W. Platt, of Delaware, is in the city.
