Investigation Clears Him of Clayton's
Little Rock, Ark., Juiie2G. Hon. T.
F. Gibbon, a prominent young lawyer of
Los Angeles, Cal., formerly a citizen of
Little Rock and a prominent politician,
has been in the city several days. His
visit here was supposed to be a social one
to his friends and associates until today,
when it became known that his services
had been engaged by Governor Eagle to
make a report as to the whereabouts, at
the time of the assassination of the late
J Ion. John M. Clayton, of Thomas
Hooper, of Los Angeles, Cal., who, at the
recent investigation in this city, it
was alleged, was the assassin. The story,
it will no remembered, was telegraphed
from Los Angeles, and it was given out
Hooper assassinated Clayton because of
injuries done to his father by the militia
when Powell Clayton was governor of Ar
kansas. Mr. Gibbon states that his report,
which has been made to the governor,
shows that Hooper ban no connection
whatever with the assassination. The
gentleman declines to be interviewed, and
will make no statement further than that
his report lias been turned over to the
proper authorities, and it is understood
that Governor Eagle has forwarded it to
Congressman Breckinridge at Washing
ton. This removes entirely suspicion from
the family of Thomas Hooper and brands
the story of Jared Sater as a falsehood.
THE CROSS CASE.
Paris, Tex., June 20. The Cross case
was resumed this morning, Ed. Bowden,
the defendant who has beeu sick since the
10th inst.? being able to be in the court
room. Five witnesses were examined in
the forenoon, who testified that Ed. Short,
a dignity sheriff of Stevens county, Kan
has, who resided at Woodsdale, went
to Hugotou on June 5, 18SS, accom
panied by two men, and fired at Sam
Sam Hobiuson and. J. B. Chamberlin.
Short was riding a very fast horse
and ran out of the town. The men with
him, after going about a half mile, cut the
horses loo-e from the wagon; mounted the
hor&es and escaped. This testimony showed
the bad feeling between the towns of
Woodsdale and Hugoton.
At noon Cowden became worse, and
counsel on both sides agreed on a mistrial
as to him and the case was proceeced
with as to the remaining eleven de
fendants. The defense then proposed to
introduce testimony to show that Sher
iff Cross had made threats against
Sim Robinson, but Judge Bryant
ruled that it was not admissible at the
present status of the case, because Sam
Robinson was not on trial. The defense
then introduced more witnesses to
strengthen the alibi as to O'Connor,
Grnbbo and Calvert. In order to dispone
of the case as soon as possible, Judge Bry
ant has announced that hereafter court
will remain in session nine hours a day,
the forenoon session being from Sto 12 and
the afternoon from 2 to 7. It will proba
bly take ten days longer to linish the case.

prominent citizens not many years since,

o'clock. Ho was 70 years old and had

in in the legislature, lie was a descendent
of one of the earliest families of New
Haven. The suicide was caused by finan
cial troubles. Mr. Sperry was some years
atro appointed to be trustee of an
estato valued at 100,000. Within the

man announced that the placing of candi
dates in nomination for governor was the
next thing in order. Colonel John J. Car
ter, of Erie, who was to nominate Delama

Mr. Carter mentioned Gedrge Wallace Del
amatyrthe convention broke forth into
the wildest cheers. Flags were waved by
the excited and enthusiastic Delamatyr
men in the galleries. This was, however,
the only great outbreak, except at the fin
ish, when they once more cheered. C.
Stuart Patterson seconded the nomination.
George W. Orlady then took the floor
and placed Hastings in nomination. As
he proceeded with his speech tho enthus
iasm became so great that he had to stop
and say to the galleries: "See here! if you
fellows are going to nominate Hastings,
we'll change places."
On the second ballot Delamatyr received
99 votes and Hastings 61. Before the bal
lot was announced George S. Graham, of

RUSSELL NOT DISCHARGED.
CHICAGO, III, June 26. A crisis in the
big strike of the Illinois Central trainmen
was reached this evening. After an all
day session tho conference between the
strikers' committee and the Illinois Cen
tral officials ended with a positive refusal
on the part of the company to discharge
Superintendent Russell. This was the
ultimatum as far as the company was con
cerned. The ultimatum of the emloyes,
and indeed the occasion of the strike,
had been a demand for Russell's discharge,
the reason given being his alleged "gen
eral obnoxiousness." How far the lines
of other companies will be involved was
also the subject of much discussion among

ADVERTISING RATES DISCUSSED.
Boston, Mass., June 26. The sessions of
tho National editorial association were
continued today in the state house. Vice
President E. W. Stephens, of Missouri,
opened ;i discussion on the question
of advertising by a paper on
"Newspaper Making for Profit." He held
that the present lack of uniformity
in advertising rates is due to the lack of
knowledge on the part of the newspaper
publishers of what space is worth.
Chairman Parker, of the committee on
advertising, made a report of a schedule
of uniform advertising rates running per
inch from 75 cents per week to S10 per
year and per column from 10 per week to
$100 per year.

Phenomena of Hurricanes.
Professor Loomis gives a very interest
ing summary of his investigations on the
subject of tornadoes. He finds that while
no season of the year is exempt they occur
for the most part in May and June, and
generally between noon and sunset. Tho
usual accompaniments are a rise in tem
perature, lightning and rain, and frequent
ly hail. Their progress in this country is
invariably eastwardly, the mean being 12
degs. north of east. Their average breadth
is 129 rods; length, 15 miles; velocity of
progress when violent, about 30 miles an
hour; duration of destructive violence, 45
seconds. The loss of human life is remark
ably small considering all tho attendant
conditions, being about one to a tornado.
In passing over ponds and rivers water
is invariably raised in large quantities.
Leeward roofs are generally taken in pref
erence to windward. Light objects are
frequently transported three to twenty
miles, and fowls are not infrequently picked
of most of their feathers. This though a
singular is undoubtedly a true phenome
non. The attempts to prove that it could
be caused by the expansion of air in the
quills, duo to the passage of a vacuum,
have not been successful. The most sin
gular fact is that the fowl lives under the
depluming process. In some cases roosters
have been seen walking around after a tor
nado crowing, and without a feather on
their backs. A feasible explanation is that
an electric charge threw off the feathers
much in the same way as it now and again
strips the clothes from a person. New

Not Used to Litigation.
Ono of the judges of the superior court
of Cook county tells this:
"It is astonishing how much ignorance
there is among men about the rules of a
court room. When I see so much of it I
can understand why there is so much liti
gation. .Not long ago a case was tried in
this room before a jury. After the jury re
tired I was making some minutes on my
book. The lawyers had stepped out and
only a few persons remained. A man
camo to the bench and asked me if I
thought the jury would bo out long. I did
not look up at him. supposing that he was
a reporter or an attache of tho court. I re
plied that I didn't know. 'What do you
think they will do?' ho asked, and then I
did look up. There stood tho plaintiff in
the case. Before I could reprimand him
" 'Judge, if you will permit me to go into
tho room where the jury is I can tell them
something which wasn't brought out in
the evidence, and it may change their opin- '
ion and hasten a verdict.'
"I saw that tho man was perfectly honest
and was not aware of asking anything out
of tho way. I explained to him why I
could not grant his request and he seemed
to ba satisfied. He said it was tho first '
lawsnit ho ever had, and ho didn't think j
his lawyer had done as much as ho might
have done.'" Chicago Tribune j

fess himself in tho wrong. Whereupon
the orator's mood changes once more,
as the sky in the west changes at the ap
proach of a funnel shaped cloud. Ho
warns the opposition of the consequences
of their perversity, their folly, which ho
declares will "never, never do," and in
his eagerness to impress this upon their
minds Bhakes his head till the stranger
in tho gallery becomes alarmed at the
prospect of beholding a suicide by de
capitation. The wicked foe staring blankly at Mr.
Cannon or smiling incredulously as if
doubting their own sins, tho orator
rushes to his desk, picks up a book and
raises it where all may see. This is ono
of his greatest acts, one in which tho
art of gesticulation reaches its climax
the right arm as
rigid as tho ped
estal of "Liberty

sinuous and snake
like, tempting the
enemy to behold

A smile of tri
umph is upon the
orator's face as ho
assumes that the
enemy are a3
as he thinks they
ought to be. Then
he shakes the vol

the leaves drop out and flutter to the
floor like exaggerated snowflakes. But
no snow or storm can cool the ardor of
the orator. He is afire and must burn
out. A few more gyrations, a few hard
blows at an imaginary antagonist with
the now sadly wrecked book as a weapon,
and the volume is flung upon a desk with
so much violence that the ink will slop
over and the penholders dance a jig with
the eraser. Then Mr. Cannon sita down,
the coolest man in the house, and there
is applause on the floor and in the gal
leries. Walxzb. Wellxan.
