THEY GOBBLE THE ROAD. THE ANTI-LOTTERY B{LL. Why It Went Through Without Amendment or Opposition. ( nu aho, Sept. 17.—The Washington correspondent of the Tribune explains why there was no visible opposition to the anti-lottery bill upon its tinal passage by Un' senate. Several senators had wanted to make speeches either for amendment." or on th*' constitutional aspect of the bill, but Senator Sawyer, of Wisconsin, by his private talks convinced them that the country did not care to hear from them on the subject. Nobody called for the yeas and nays, and the bill went through without objection. It would not be true to -ay that no opposition existed, but that opposition kept quiet and fora good reason. The lottery vultures in their it impossible for any honest, to oppose the ting himself under pieion. Perhaps it Boston. Sept. IT.—The republican state convention was called to order this morning. J. O. Burdett was made temporary chairman. The usual committees were appointed. A novel feature in the platform arrangement was the placing thereon of three ballot boxes placarded respectively: '‘Attorney General,” “Auditor” and “Secretary of State.” I here being no contest for the head of the ticket, Gov. Brackett and Lieut. Gov. Hall will be renominated bv acclamation. Tho ballots fur the other state offices, the nomination in all of which will be contested, w ill be deposited at • in** time, voting to be done by counties. I ids system is designed for the purpose of expediting business and will also have the effect of preventing a great deal of log rolling. J. IL O. Brackett was nominate*] for governor by acclamation. William IL II til I** for lieutenant governor, George A. Mardt'n for state treasurer, W. M. Olin for secretary of state, Albert E. Pillsburv for attorney general, J. II. Gould, for auditor. The committee on resolutions presented the platform, which was adopted unanimously. The platform approves the administration of President Harrison: praises Blaine and tie* other members of th*' cabinet; Speaker Reed is heartily thanked for bis course in th** house, and the work of th** majority endorsed and th** minority condemned. The McKinley bill, the Lodge election bill and the disability pension bill are mentioned as especially worthy of praise. The Chicago and 8t. Louis Leased by the Jacksonville and Southeastern. Jacksonville, III., Sept. 17.—A new I railroad deal was made to-day in which j the Chicago and St. Louis road, a line | running from Springfield to Mount Olive through Litchfield, has been absorbed by a lease effected by the Jacksonville and Southeastern, whose head- j quarters are in this city.

Adjourned. sible to show any outright attempts at bribery, yet circumstances enough were known among th** senators which made them anxious to keep clear of possible reflection on their motives. The lottery stood ready to debauch congress as it has already debauched th** state of Louisiana and as it sought to debauch the state of North Dakota. Knowing all these things, there was a feeling of relief when the bill went through this afternoon without change. It is th** most important piece of legislation in the interest of public morals enacted at this session. It is also important because of the emphatic way it stamps th** reckless partisan Ii**- that th** lottery had made a “deal” with the republican national committee by which it was to be guaranteed protection. Under its workings Postmaster General Wanamaker is confident that the postoffice department will be able to dc* much towards stiffing the whole lottery evil. It will assuredly prevent the prostitution of the mails and will encourage state and municipal iegis-lation against the whole horde of lottery swindles.

The petition was referred to the committee on lands and towns and lot*. It is probable that a great many petitions of this sort will bt* presented to tin* board in the next few days.

Witness The Utah Commission Advise Further Legislation in Support of tile Laws. Salt Lake, Sept. 17.—Th** Utah commission has forwarded to the secretary of lh* interior a lengthy report on its operations and proceedings during tin* past year. The principal feature is the recommendation of further legislation iii support of the laws. In reviewing the situation tho commissioners say:    “Dur ing th** year there has been frequent expressions of hope that the church would in some authoritative aud explicit man- ; lier declare in favor of the abandonment j of polygamy as one of the teaching of th** I church, but no such declaration was made, j So complete is th** control of the church j over th** people that there is little reason j for doubting if such declaration were made it would be accepted and followed by a large majority of the membership ! and a settlement of the question would -soon be reached. On the contrary, in | all the teachings in th** tabernacle and i church organs every effort of th*; gov- | eminent to suppress this crime i> still | denominated as persecution. Tin* church seems to grow more united from day to day under tiles** teachings. At the general conference last April, Wilford Woodruff, the disfranchised polygamist I was chosen ’prophet, seer, revelator and ; president of the church of J**>iis Christ of Latter Day Saints in all the world.’ This is the first time since the death of John Taylor, in 1887, that the office has been filled. At the same time G. O. Cannon was chosen ‘first counsellor’ and Lorecnzo Snow ‘president of the twelve Apostles', these also being disfranchised polygamists. A large portion of the twelve apostles and high dignitaries of th** church are polygamists and reputed to lie op**ii believers in the doctrine.” The report further says the commission has returns from tin* registration officers which enumerate forty-one male persons, who, it is believed, have entered into polygamous relation since the June revision in 1889. The belief is expressed that only a small proportion of polygamist marriages are reported, as many of the registrars are members of the Mormon church. The commission recommends that its powers be enlarged to enable it to issue instructions which shall be binding upon registrars; also recommends the enactment of a law similar to the Idaho te>t oath law, believing it would do more to put an end to the teaching and practice of polygamy than has yet I’onncot i<-ut Kt* publicans. New Haven, Sept. 17.—Th** repubii-liean state convention reconvened this morning. United States Senator Orville IL Platt was elected permanent chairman. Samuel E.

Sept. 17.—W. M. Langdon passed through this city lust night accompanying th** body of his wife, who was murdered at Grand Mound. Iowa, Monday, by John VV. Bevan, of Chicago. to her former home at Madison. Tears glistened in young Langdon'* eyes when be stood on th*; platform wat* iiing th** baggagemen transferring the pine box j containing his wife’s remains from a hand truck to the express ear. The story of th** double killing was most graphically told by young Langdon while wailing for th** departure of tin* train that bore Mrs. Langdon'" remains back to the home of her parents, w hich I she so recently left. “Bevan,” Ii** said, “bad an insane idea that my wife still loved him. II** could not rest, day or night, until he found the opportunity to see her once more aud ask her fa**** to fa***; if it were not so. Several days ago I received at Grand Mound ail anony- ; incus telegram containing a warning in i a brief sentence. It said:    ‘Look    out    I for Bevan.’ I have sin* ** learned that this dispatch came from Eugene Rowley, of Madison, who is engaged to marry Miss Minnie Smith, a sister of my dead wife, and to whom Bevan had declared before leaving for Iowa that his love for Mrs. Langdon wasdeepandinextinguish- I ald**, and that without th** companion- ; >hip of th** idol of his heart there wand! bing left for him to make life worth the living. Bevan, in leaving Madison, j whither In* had gone in th** hope of finding Mr". Langdon, not knowing that -he had joined me in Iowa, told Rowley thai he was going back to Chicago. Rowley, I however, watched him and saw* him board a train for Rockford evidently j bound for Iowa. “This was on Friday of last week. The i next tiling I heard was that Bevan had made his appearance in th*: town of I)** Witt, iii the same county where we wen-living. On Monday, about ll o'clock, when I was out a short di-tan**** from the ! house of Mr. Twogood. where we 1 boarded, engaged on th** work of the railroad which my father and myself ar** building for the Northwestern between Clinton and Cedar Rapids, Bevan suddenly walked up and -poke to me. I hardly knew him. Ile wore huge goggles : aud appeared to be atten pting a di-- ; gtii-e. I feared th** man, though I. was ; armed and prepared for him. IL* a-ked me to step aside and talk with him. i Before complying I -aid in a low voice to ; one of my fellow workmen:    ‘That    man    I will either kill me or I will kill him.’ “ ‘I have come to set; your w ife,’ said Bevan in peremptory tone", at th*; sam** tim** nervously clutching a revolver which ii** carried iii his outside coat (locket. In reply I told him that he could not -**e her: that it would be wrong to grant such a request after he had been following u-around like a crazy man and making threats against lier life. IL* bad repeatedly written lier in letters that she would not be Mrs. Langdon very lone. Bevan beine r«*fu-**d beean to act wildly. It then occurred to me that I should run to the house and warn my wife of his presence. I feared that Ii** would "hoot iii** before I reached the house, and I gave a loud whistle to attract Mrs. Langdon's attention. She heard me and appeared at the window. I reached the house in safety. Bevan saw her face at th** window. IL* came nearer to the house, like on** attracted by some strange power of fascination he could not r**-ist. For an hour or more, while we remained indoors, he wandered about among the bushes in th*; yard. At la't. wearying of this fearful situation, I went out and urged him to go away and leave us in peace. He refused uni*— he could tirst see my wife. “ ‘Then,’ said I, ’if she will -ee you, will you consent to being searched and disarmed?” “ 'N*),' -aid Bevan, *1 have never sub-1 mitred to anything like that. but I will be honest. I with not use my weapon. But I must see your wife. I would w illingly (TOK coroner’s inquest. At four o'clock yesterday morning the coroner's jury returned a verdi* t exonerating him from all blame.

Two of them died that day, and six others died yesterday. Tho latest news from the neighborhood is to the effect that many others are dangerously ill and their deaths hourly expected. A big revival had been going on for a week at a negro church, near CoUerine, which is in a remote section of Dallas county, some twenty miles from Salem. A hue** barbecue of pork was served last Sunday and the assembled throng ate heartily of the meat and shortly afterwards many of the dinners were suffering severely. All the physicians in the neighborhood were summoned, and at once pronounced th** sickness the result of poison. The barbecue pork was examined and the physicians found traces of arsenic in it. The symptoms of all those taken ill were those of arsenic poisoning. Everything possible was done by the physicians, but two children died’in a short I time. The next day six grown persons, I four women and two men, died in great I agony. No less than twenty persons The Trouble on the New York Central ,    Ended    at Last.

I told her that he had promised to go away aud cease troubling us if it were granted. She eheerfully consented. As -he walked <iut into til** front yard to meet her jilted lover my fears were greatly aroused. Something seemed to tell me that -he j was going out to meet death iii an awful j form. Then came th** most exciting and tr>ing ordeal of my life. I went up stair-and took down a rill** from its accustomed place. With this weapon I went to a window where tiler** was a hole in til** screen. Through thi> aperture I had a full and fair view of Bevan and my wife where    they    stood    talking in    the front yard.    Bevan was    facing me,    but the screen secured    me safely from    observation.    Then    and    there with    my rill** I drew a bead on Bevan and kept him covered till th** interview appeared to be at an end and Bevan turned as if to depart. During th** awful minutes of suspense I supposed that Bevan had hi-revolver in his hip pocket, where I had seen him place it. My resolve was that in ease he made a motion toward that pocket to send a bullet through his brain. Oh. why *1 id I not do it without waiting till it was too late and save my darling wife; “I relaxed my fears at the wrong moment. I did not know that Bevan had changed his weapon from his hip (locket to th** inside pocket of his coat. Instead of going, as I expected, he still lingered. He took out a notebook, w hich he consulted. I then went down stairs and out into the yard, leaving my rill** behind and taking my revolver. As I drew near I overheard my wive-aying:    ’Mr.    Bevan, you are no man.’ “ ‘It is time for this to end.’ I said. At this moment Bevan stood with his coat buttoned up by the lowest button, while Ii** grasped the lapels with his hands. I was still watching for a motion toward his hip pocket. Ile let his right hand slide down his brea-t under his coat, in a listless manner. Like a flash his revolver was out and leveled point blank at my wife’s head. There were two sharp reports in rapid succession. With a little scream Mrs. Langdon fell on the gras-, and the blood trickled from two bullet wounds down her neck. It was over before I could get my revolver out of my coat pocket, the hammer catehingon the lining as I attempted to jerk it upward. Bevan turned upon me next. We fired at each other almost simultaneously, my shot a little in advance of his, I* think. Mine took effect and his did not. Then he began to reel and stagger, but he managed to fin* again. Whether at himself or at me I cannot tell. I was terribly excited. Before he fell I rushed upon him and shot him five times. Four bullets went Into his brain, where they were found at th** post mortem, and the fifth entered hi-neck. He fell dead beside my wife. Crazed with grief, I carried her, dying as she was, into the house. She never spoke afterward. The whole neighborhood soon became aroused by the awful tragedy and the excitement was very great.” LANGDON EXONERATED.
