PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BKOTHKHS � rviiusuisi!� CURRENT COMMENT. Recipuocity is proteation made pro. gresaive.  Tho Republican patty is the patty of progress, reciprocity. That's why it is for It'b queer, wlisn you come to think of it, that the Farmers1 Alliance should think this government oould manago the farms so muoh better than tho farmers themselves. ^ The alligator wilTta a few years share the fate of the buffalo, and be found only in muBenms.

DEAMATIO ENDING OP THEIR LIVES IltlSIl LK.4DURS ARRESTED. Tue New York Central train wreckers hare confessed. They are all Knights of Labor, but say that tbey did their evil work oo their own responsibility, and not under the auspices of any district assembly. We suspect the Democrats in Peunsyl vania are going to beat Delamator in tho same way they defeated Reed in Maim So far as we can see, the campaigns in the two States are carried on in precisely the same way. GovEnson McKixnet, of Virginia, says that it is not at all necessary for a public man to drink, as is often asserted. It has been his invariable practice to declino all "treats" in his political campaigns, and ho believes that instead of losing, bo has gained votes by his abstinence. It is rather early in the campaign, but we wast to remind onr readers that the Republicans have an excellent oounty ticket and one that deserves their support. Every man on the ticket ib well qualified for the position for which he was nominated and every one of them will make first-class officials if elected. The Maryland Law School has decided to admit no more colored students. It is not denied that colored stndents are as likely to make good lawyers as white dues; in fact, tho two who attended last year, tho first of their kind, were graduated with high honors; but the white students object to associating with "niggers," and so the doors are closed. General Gobdon, the straigh-out Democratic candidate for Govenror of Georgia, has begun a bitter war on the Farmers' Alliance in that State, He gives no quarter and asks none. On the other hand the Allianoe is as bitter and determined as Gen. Gordon, and the result will be about as lively a shaking up of political matters in that State as bas been seen in many years. ' The opening of Iowa's great ooal palace at Ottamwa Is an event of unusual industrial interest, The people in this part of the country are in the habit of hearing aboat the Iowa farmers burning corn for fuel, yet here is a coal palace of large proportions, with a tower rising two hundred feet, the greater portion of the building being comprised of blocks of coal, while a great mine is underneath it. The Coal Palace Exhibition will be by all odds the greatest attraction in the Northwest daring the present season. The Value of Experience. A good story Is told of a Democratic candidate for tho Legislature in this Stato. He is also an oil producer. About a year ago a man applied to him for a contract to drill a well. "Have you ever drilled any wells?" asked the oil man. "No," said the applicant. "Well," said the oil man.  "I muse have a manof experience." LaBt week these two again met, and our oil prodncer, who bad never held an office, asked the driller to vote for him. "Have you ever bad a seat in the Legislature?" was the driller's query. "No," said tho candidate. "Well," said the oil driller, "I'm going to vote for some man who has bad experience." Talking jror KIYcct, From the Detroit Tribune. A few weeks ago when Secretary Blaine wrote his letter to Senator Fryo advocating reciprocity with the Central and South American States, the Democratic leaders and newspapers bad nothing but words of praise for the wisdom of Mr. Elaine's proposition. When the Republican majority of the Senate adopted the recommendation of Secretary Blaine every Democratic Senator voted against reciprocity. The Tobacco Crop. A gentleman who has traveled over most of the tobacco growing districts in Cliutou county this week says, the crop will bo about all cut by to-morrow night. Tho crop is largo and was not damaged by hail. .-�   - Taking tho Chances.

New Yoiuc,September IS.-Two strange shooting cases which tho police here are investigating took place early this morn ing. Tho first was that of Emilie Rossi, nineteen years of age. She committed suicide by shooting herself in the breast with a 32 calibre revolver in her room at No. 140 Canal street. Immediately the report of the girl's pistol was beard, Gustavo C. Koch, who stood on tho otevated railroad platform al most undor tho room window, sent abullct through his head. Both aro Germans, and just at present it looks as if they had agreed to die at or near tho samo moment, About daybreak a fair-haired German, a stalwart and handsomo looking man, on tered the elevated railroad station. Tho man paced up and down the platform. TOE SIGNAL for DEATn. After a while a woman's voice was heard to Bpeak a word or two of German from a window overlooking where tho man stood. Tho man nodded and replied loud enough-for the gatoman to hear him: Yes, I have come, Emilie. Are you ready?" The answer from the window was not heard. The man turned on his heel and took something from bis pocket. Tho next moment a shot rang out and the man fell heavily forward on his face. Before tho report had died away the station man, who rushed forward, heard what seemed to be an echo of the shot coming apparently from tho window of the house overlooking the end of the platform where tho dead man lay. No attention was paid to it, as tbey were attonding to the dead man. Policemen and physicians were hurriedly called, but when they arrived the man was dead. He had shot himself through the temple. THE WOMAX FOUND DEAD. While the officers were examining the clothing and effects of tho suicide a messenger rushed into the station house and cried out that a woman had shot herself at No. 140 Canal street. The keeper of the Germania Cafe there had found Emilie Rossi, an actress who boarded in the bouse, dead, shot through the heart. Tbo one window of her room which overlooked tho south end of the uptown platform was tho one whioh the gateman had seen opened previously, and from which tbo sound of the second shot was heard. Behind the laco curtains the woman had set waiting for the trysting death signal. It had come, and at the signal "ready'" tho man fell dead under the window and she shot herself to the heart within. There lay three visiting cards with farewell messages over the name of Emilie Rossi. It scorned as plain as daylight that they had prearranged their suicides. Everything within the room had been set to rights for the tragedy in which she was about to play the leading part or ro'e. The girl had evidentlv made every preparation for the tryst. On a chair by tho window lay her clothing carefallysmoothed out. She bad been writing, and the table was covered with small sheets of paper filled with her thoughts as she sat waiting. The hand was a neat feminine hand, and did not appear to be the least tremulous, THE UNFOTUNATE VICTIMS. The girl, as she lay on her side on the bed, was attired iu a clean white night robe, with lace frills, and yet there was not a spot or Etain upon it to betray tho mauuer of her death. Only under her heart on her bared breast there was a rod spot, and in the centro of it a small hole. Not a single drop of blood had oozed out. She, too, had died without a struggle. In tho buttonhole of her robo a spray of heliotrope was pinned and lay over her breast. The face wsb very handsome, her figure plump and petite. Tbey wore a handsome pair. "Emilie Rossi, aged ninttecu years, actress with Aniberg's troupe. Born in Berlin." "Gustave G. Koch, twenty-six years old, crayon artist, employed by 1$. P. Falk, photographer, at No. 0-10 Broadway. Lived at No. 282 East Twelfth street." This was the brief official record made by the polico, to which sonic one added, "Tbey were lovers and died together." Fouud a Case. A Minneapolis newspaper found a case where a mob took a man out of jail and hung him for a murder ho was not guilty of, but tho paper bad scarcely time to advise that the law always bo allowed to take its course when it was proved that the victim was guilty of two murders which other men had been legally hung for.-Detroit Free Press, Jolm Dillon and William O'Brien Taken Into Custody. Dublin, Sept. 18. John Dillon was arrested this morning at his residence near this city. He waa conveyed on special train to Tipperary, aocompanied by a large military escort. Mr. William O'Brien was arrested at Glengariff and taken toCork. Warrants have been issued for the arrost of Messrs. Sbeedy and Condon, members of the House of Commons Mr. Patrick O'Brien, and Rev. David Humphrey, of Tipperary, The charges on whioh Mr, Dillon was arrested are conspiracy and inciting the tenants on Smith.Barry's estate not to pay rents. Later information shows that Mr. Dillon's arrest did not take plaoe at his resi dence. It was made at Ballybroek, where he was visiting at the house of an uncle, lie was at once hurried under strong guard and with the utmost seoreoy to the railway station, where a special car was in waiting. ' As soon as he entered this tho train was started for Dublin. Only a brief stop was made in this city, when the prisoner was carried on to Tipperary, the tenants of which town he Is charged with having incited by bis speeohes to refuse payment of root to their landlord. Mr. Smith-Barry. The arrest of William O'Brien wasmado at the Glongariff Hotel. Mrs. O'Brien was present at the time. The charges against Mr. O'Brien are similar to those on which Mr. DUEon was arrested. These charges aro based on speeohes made by him at Limeriok and Tipperary in whioh it is alleged be advised his auditors not to pay rent. From Glengariff, whioh is at the head of Bantry Bay, and not far from Cork, Mr. O'Brien waa immediately carried to that cisy. In addition to those already mentioned, it. is ascertained that a warrant bas been issued for Mr. Daltoo, who has been an tive in the work of the Land League Persons entering or leaving aro subjeoted to close soruitiny. Dispatches from Tip-porary report that the organizers of the local branch of the League there are under close police surveillance. There was no abatement of Interest throughout the day in the arrests. Up to 7 o'clock this evening no definite information had reached London of the specific utterances of Dillon and O'Brien on which tho warrants for their arrest were based. Neither had the Government given out any official explanation whioh would throw light upon their sudden and unexpected resort to a vigorous Irish policy. It is commonly supposed to-night that the ostensible grounds for O'Brien's arrest are to be found in the very plain speech that be made laBt Sunday. O'Brien and Dillon wore given a bearing and admitted to bail. BASK   KALI.   RECORD. The Three Organizations anil Their Standing; to Data. NATIONAL LEAGUE.

Invniitlaa Puts In Ihe Field a Very Ijciod Imitation of fonrsclr, Sir. George R. Moore, of Lowell, Mats., a retired mill owner, has constructed an electric man that walks about with ovcry appearance of life, and is made to bo useful as well as ornamental by pushing a perambulator. Tho ohair ovor which he presides is a light wicker-work affair, like those of a half grown trotting sulky. Thore Is a footboard which is used for carrying the batteries which pnt tho propol ing power into the electric man's muscles of wood and steel. The man stands dircotly behind the chair. If he were flesh and blood be would just come inside the limits as a lightweight sparrer, and, as far as all appearances go, would be about 35 years old. Ho is connected with the chair at about the point at which the human diaphragm is popularly supposed to be located. There is a pushing bar above this, on which his neatly gloved hands rest, but this is more for vanity than utility. He is dressed in the height of fashion, being at-tirod in a new white shirt, with collar and cuffs to match, and a soft felt hat. He has a number of changes of clothing and aan be dressed for Foui th of July or Christmas weather, just like any man. He wears a No. 6 shoe, four wide, and sports a Louis Napoleonic mustache. Met upon any thoroughfare he would bo marked for his gonoral stylo and dignified bearing. Tu&t at present his complexion is a little off color, but be is to have thiB treated with tho most approved toilet preparations that the paiut pot can procure. The action of the feat and logs which the inventor has reached with this machine is remarkable imitation of a human being. Tboro is none of the jerky motion that is so commonly seen in mechanical figures. Bach foot, as it leaves the ground, riBoa naturally on the toe with the sime springy motion that is oharaotetistio of the graceful walk among men aud women. As in the taking of the foot from the ground, so iu replacing it at the end of tho step, the motion is free from jog or jar and is entirely natural. The electric mau is provided with a six horso-power battery, whioh iB amply sufficient to euable him to push the fattest dowager up a bill. It is Mr. Moore's intention to make his eleotrio man polito as weil as useful, says a scientific journal and to that end his right arm, which is) said to have more joints and bones than the corresponding member of the human body, will bo so arranged that hecan raise his hat gracefully as he receives a fare.- Now York Morning Journal. AFTER THE ABSENT ONES in the House at Washington 'Biockoti for the Want of a Quorum, SIX  THOUSAND  IN  1.1NB. AN APPEAL TO ABSENT MEMBERS S|�caker Beed'a Half-Dollar. From the Chicago Herald. Speaker Reed invested a half-dollar in his campaign the othor day in a rather queer way. A letter came to him from a woman in Portland with the mutilated bait of a dollar bill onolosod. Accompanying It was a statement to tbe effect that the woman's baby had taken the bill from tho mantel and in his baby ignorance of tbo value of wealth put the piece of paper in his mouth and masticated and svralloircd it till only oco-half of it was left in a reoognizable condition. Would Mr. Reed be kind enough to go over to the Treasury Department and sec it ho could get a new bill far the one which the baby had destroyed? The Speaker sent the piece of ragged paper to the Treasury by one of his clerks, and thus learned that tbe Treasury waB willing to give a half-dollar for tbe mutilated note, and on presentation of an affidavit that tbe remaining half had actually been masticated and swallowed by the baby would pay the other half. Reflecting that an affidavit would cost the woman 35 cents, a postage stamp and a let of bother, tho Speaker oonoluded to settlo the difficulty by advancing the half-dollar out of his own pocket. This he promptly did. and was rewarded therefor by receiving a letter of thanks from the bany's mother. "I knew that it thero was any mau iu Washington who could mako the Treasury officials stand around," wrote the wotuau, "you were the one." Two From Benoro. From the Kocord. George F.

Euiogtas oa the late Representative Laird, of Nebraska, were pronounced and the Senate adjourned out of respect to the memory of the deceased. Tho House tried hard to get a quorum to-day, but at ore minutes past 3 tho attempt was given up and the Houbo adjourned. A Republican caucus was called to meet immediately. tue house caucus, The caucus of Republican members of the House this afternoon lasted an hour and a quarter. Tho sole topic oi discussion was the status of business in the House and tho best means of obtaining a quorum to~~do business. It was found upon roll oa.ll that there are now in Washington 143 Repnblloan members, which is twenty-one less than a quorum. Consequently thero axe now twenty eight Republican absentees. The caucus resolved to make every effort to secure the attendance of these members, and telegrams will be sent out to-night representing tbe presi-Ing need for their presence. It was stated that If the absentees return to Washington the remaining business of the session can be closed up In a few days, while the failure to securo attendance of a Republican quorum will tend to protract the session indefinitely. Preiident Lincoln's Dream, From the Portland Axgus. A recent number of the jVcwj England Magazine contains an interesting article "On Dreams" by the Hon. Horatio King, in which ocoura tho following account of a remarkable dream of Fresident Lincoln, as told by a member of his Cabinet, the late Edwin M. Stanton: On the afternoon of the day on which the President was shot rbsre wasa Cabinet meeting, at whioh Mr. Lincoln presided. Mr, Etanton was late, and on his entering .tho room, the President broke off in something he was saying, and remarked: "Let us proceed to business, gentlemen." Mr. Stantou then noticed with groat surprise that tbo President sat with an air of dignity in his ohair, instead of lolling about in ungainly attitudes as bis custom was, and that instead of telling irrelevant stories he was grave and calm, and quite a different man. Mr. Stanton, on leaving the council with the Attorney-General, said to him: "That is the most satisfactory Cabinet meeting 1 have attended for many a long day. What an extraordinary change iu Mr. Lincoln!" Tho Attorney-Genera! replied: "We all saw that before you came in. While we were waiting for you, ho said: 'Gentlemen, something very extraordinary is going to happen, and that very soon."' To which the Attorney-General observed, "Something good, sir, I hope," when the Fresident answered very gravely. I don't know; I don't know; but it will happen, and shortly, too." As they wore all impressed with his manner, the Attorney General took him up again. "Have yon receivod any information, sir, not yet disclosed to us ?" "No," answered the Presi-" dent, "but I have had a dream; and I have bad the samo dream tbreo times- once on tho night preceding the battlo of Bull Hun, once on a night preceding such .nothcr"-naming a battle not favorable to tho North. Ki;i chin sank on his breast again, and be sat reflecting. "Might oob ask the nature of tho dream, sir?" said tho Attorney-General. "Well," replied the-Prosidcnt, without lifting his head, or changing his attitude. "I am on a great, broad, rolling river, and I am in a boat, and I drift, and I drift-but this is hot business"-suddouly raising his faoo aud looking around tho table, as Mr. Stanton entered. "Lot us procoed .to business, gentlemen." Mr. Stantou and tbe Attorney-General said, as tbey walked on togother, that it would be curious to notico whether anything ensued on this, and they agreed to notice.  He was shot that night. A ?�icht Blooming Uercx. A number of persons assembled last ni^ht at tho residence of Reuben Sohell on Commerce street to witness the blooming of a night blooming Ceres.

Neither would speak first. Each was afraid of tbe other. One looked out into a turnip field, and the other into a swamp. Now and then one or tho other mustered tip courage to approach the door and look Dnt, but always to return to their seat again. Only one bad a watch. She consulted it ever; five minutes, but the othor dared not ask her what time it was. As an offset, however, wooden pail, half full of water, stood near her, and though the other lady was' dying for a drink she dared not go over to tho pail. Ono had a novel, and the other had a bundle of shells and curiosities; and they could havB chatted 'and visited and road and had a good time. They had not been introdueed. What an awful, awful thing if thoy had spoken and acted civilized, and then one had found out that the other was only a hired girl! A Large Black Snake.

It is a fact known to almost ovcry one that, in tho education of to-day, tbe pupils are not supposed to attend school merely to loarn reading, spelling, writing, etc., but also to receive training in manners, morals and all other things noceesary. In making good citizens of them. At the school habits are learned; habits of promptness, obedience, oleanlinoas and neatness.. There is no way of teaching those essential accomplishment moro effectively than by example.
