J. A. Andrews, the Rush county populist

Governor Lcwelling today called an
election for Nov. 7 to fill a vacancy in the
legislature for the Forty-fourth (Butler

remembeied, was caused by the decision
of the house that Noble, populist, was not
entitled to a seat because he was a post
master at the time.
The state board of pardons now has sixty
applications for clemency befoie it, nine
teen of which weie filed at this session of
the boaid. A queer feature of these last
implications is that they are nearly all
from short term prisoners. There is but
one whose sentence exceeds fifteen years.
He is Robeit Snyder of Butler county,
who is serving a life sentence for the mur
der of his wile. The papers in his case are
rery voluminous, and there is also a re
monstrance containing hundreds of name.

It is almost useless for a prisoner with a
term of less than two years to apply for a
pardon. It is rarely granted, and then
onlv when there is some exceptional cir
cumstance, such as his pioximity to
death, or the discovery that he is inno

to thoroughly investigate a prisoner's
case, giving eyery side a hearing and then
come to a decision.
It has been suggested recently that the j
noara noiu us iuiure sessions i uiu jeui

this advisable. Neither does Warden
Chase. When the board visits the peni
tentiary, as it does once a quaiter, it is
impossible to keep the fnct of their visit
from the prisoner, and there is a general
clamor to see them. Mr. Chase says that

THE RESENTENCE LAW.
Leavenworth, Kan., Oct. 10. In the
listrict court yesterday Judge Myers made
lu important ruling in regard to peniten
tiary convicts. Two convicts who escaped
Irom the Kansas penitentiary recently and
rrere captured were brought before him to
se sentenced to prison again under a pro
rision of the state law which declares that
piisouers who attempt to escape can be
taken before a district judge and sentenced
to servo their terms over again. Judge
Myers refused to sentence the prisoners
aud declared the law unconstitutional, in
asmuch as it violated the coustitutiou of
the United States and the state of Kansas
by depriving a man of his liberty without
a trial by jury. The judge also held that
penitentiary officials could not hold their
prisoners a day longer than their regular
terms under any prison rule or pretext.
Judge Myers' decision also applies to the
noted colored forcer, George Lewis, who
was placed in the county jail here at the
expiration of his term to await trial for
foiging n note ou the First National bauk
of Leavenworth, while in confinement.
The prosecuting attorney is not satisfied
with the decision in Lewis' case, and will
take an appeal to the supreme court.
A TRAIN INCIDENT.
New Haven, Conn., Oct. 10. Annie
Ward Tiffany and her company, who play
an engagement here this week, were pas
sengers on tho 4 o'clock express frotn New
York yesterday afternoon. Miss Tiffany
and the ladies were seated in the center of
the car. Just behind Miss Tiffany was a
mild-looking young man, with a" basket
which looked as if it might contain truit.
Soon after tho train started Miss Tiffany
was seen to give the youth rather iiiditr
naut looks, and later she called one of the
gentlemen of the company to her aud
whispertd to him. Ho at once spoke to
tho mild-looking young man aud requested
him to keep his feet to himself. A blame
look came over the mild-looking youth's
face and ho demandedau explanation.
Just then Miss May Warren jumped up
and left her seat huiriedly, and little Jes
sie Bertram gave a scream and said some
thing had bitten her foot off. The mild
youth then examined his basket and it
was empty. A further seurch discovered
in a corner, under the water cooler, a
iRige, live lobster, with a piece of shoe
htring in one claw and a piece of silk in
The mild youtn explaiued that he was
taking the lobster home with him and that

GRAIN RATES DEMORALIZED.
KANSAS Clir, Oct. 10. The railways be
tween Kausas City aud Chicago have been )
nsked to so reduce their rates ou grain
shipments as to compete with the Big
Four line, which has made remarkably
low lates from St. Louis to Liverpool.
Recently the Big Four system, including
the Chesapeake and Ohio, opened a stoaui
bbip lino from Newport News to Liverpool
and made a rale of 27 cents per 10D pounds
ou uraiu from St. Louis to Liverpool. The
leuular rail rate from t. Louis to the
t-eaboard is 26 cents, leaviug but i cent per
100 Douuds for the steamer haul. The Bit:
Four people chum that they arc not cutting-the
rail rate, lor they allow 26 cents
of the tariff to the rail haul aud make the
steamer haul for a little more that noth
ing. This action on the part of the Big
Four has demoralized gram rates more or
less, for the Bin Four, as a buyer of jznun,
has 9 cents per 100 pounds advantage over
all shippers who have to pay the 20-ce it
iatetothe seaboard and then py the
water rate of 10 cents to Liverpool. It is
piobable that the westcru"iiue will have
to reduce their raiv; to t lie seaboaid !o as to
make it possible for other buyer to com
pete on an eveu basis with tho Big Four.
THE CHICAGO MARKETS.
CHICAGO. Oct. 10. The increasing stocks
of wheat exceeding all expectations
weighed down prices today for that cereal,
while corn was advancing as a result of
comparatively small receipts and the big
movement from here. At the close wheat
was Ja cent lower aud com j' cent higher.
Oats gained about cent. There" was
some weakness in hoy prod nets for Oejouer

Attorney General C. E. Nelson has the-

expenses for payiug the money out.
The difference in the amount he has

addition to 8119,000, making a total short
age of $453,844 on the lease district money.

Governor Jones will not do anything dur

was his adviser. The legislature has been
blocked for the present, The finances
of the nation were never in such condition
before. There are a number of persons
here now with claims against the nation,
and all seem to be impatieut.as they know
there is but $18,000 of available cash to
pay their claims and the legislature is in
session at an enormous expense.
Its said that McCurtam has over $225,

in a bauk in Missouri and has never drawn
a cent of it out. If he does not come up
with the wish there will be trouble, as it is

one of the fastest horses at the meeting,

pace had barely been set when Williams
took a double wrap' around the reins and
pulled him in. He continued this at
every turn, and all around tho track. At

INDICTED FOR FRAUD.
Kansas Citt, Oct. io. At 5 o'clock this
afternoon the special grand jury which
has been investigating the failure of the
Kansas City Safe Deposit and Savings
bank returned sixteen indictments against
James C. Darragh and Jsixteen against
Elmer C. Sattley, president and cashier of
the defunct bank. Each indictment
charges grand larceny. They are all ex
actly the same except as to dates, names
and amounts. The grand jury made
recommendations, merely certifying to the
correctness of the report, The indict
ments against botli Darragh aud"Sattley
are based on the ieceipt o deposits from
sixteen depositors, who made deposits ou
aud arter the uoilce of June 13, and some
as late as July 10, the day before the as
signment. The grand jury, so says Prosecutor
Brown, will spend another week investi
gating tne bank railare; and it is not im
probable that others of the banks officers
will be indicted and forced to stand trial.
Both Darragh and Sattley are under
$20,000 bonds each, and will appear in
court tomorrow morning to answer to the
CAPTURED THE TRAIN.
Houston, Tex., Oct. 10. The Southern
Pacific officials are considerably excited
over the uewa received lrom points along
the line concerning the capture of one of
their freight trains at Del Rio by a baud
of sixty-five armed men, who claimed to
be miners fiom California and New
Mexico. They took possession of the
train, driving off all the crew, and all who
attempted to dissuade them. They say
that they have been driven to depsera
tiou by the delay of the sen
ate in settling the silver quostiou,
so that work may be resumed in tue silver
producing states, and they propose to go
to Alabama to take the place of striking
miners, as it is work or starvation to
They are running the train on their own

in order to avoid collisions with regular

dare not attack them, unless they can
muster a sufficient posse, which cannot be
done except in cities.
A MOCK MARRIAGE.
KANSAS ClTr, Oct. 10. The divorce suit
of Mrs. Frances Bemia against W. T.
Bemis, a clerk in a hardware store at
McClough, near Topeka, has assumed a
strange phase. Bemis, the defendant, has
filed a cross petition in the circuit court
denying that he was ever married to Mrs.
Bemis aud alleging that she is trying to
take advautage of a mock marriage cere
mony performad while he was drunk. He
states that lu October, 1SS9, he met the
woman who claims to be his wife, and that
afterward, when he had sobered up, he
was informed by some of bis companions
that in a spirit of conviviality he aud Mrs.
Bemis had beer, married by a mock cere
mony. No license was secured, nor was
the man who performed the ceremonv a
preacher ot the go.spel. He says he at once
lepudiateu tue marrige ana nas ever since,
but thnt the defendant has taken advautage
of the joke of his fun-loving companions
by trying to extort money from him. He
asks that the suit be dismissed.
NEW York, Oct. 10. Lord Dunraven,
wheu interviewed on yesterday's race,
said that he was satisfiedhat the Vigilant
is the faster boat at the weight of wind
which prevailed, but thought that in
heavier or lighter weather the Valkyrie
might make a better showing. He was
much annoyed by the crowding of the ex
cursion steamers, which, he said, made an
eutirely fair teit of speed impossible.
Had this not been so, he thought, tht
Valkyrie would not have been beaten by
more thun five minute. Lord Dunraven
thought it very probable that his yacht
would take the third racp, but he thought
th prospects of winning ihrco straight
aud getting the can very dubious.
The new bowsprit that takes tne place
of the one that was sprung in the Vigil
anw's race on Mouday against the Valkyrie
for the America's cup was iu position this
afternoon, aud the third rac&of the match
will be sailed tomorrow. The British
want the wind heavy. They claim, and
with truth, that the Vigilant's superiority
:u a half gale has not yet been provn in a
race bet ecu the boats, aud they want a
chance in that sort of weather before they
admit that the American model is better
thau that of the English.

A MAFIA VICTIM.
New York, Oct. 10. The circumstances
surrounding the death of a handsome
young Italian, found dying in the hallway
at 51 Mulberry street at 2 o'clock this
morning, lead to the belief that the Mafia
has fouud another victim. While the po
lice refuse to express an opinion, the fact
that live Italians have been arrested is
proot that they have suspicions. When
fouud in the hallway the man had a long
piece of clothesline tightly knotted arouud
one foot and extending to the left arm.
The dead man's name is supposed to ba
Leonardo Laerto, and he is supposed to
have lived in Jersey City.

THE STOCK MARKET.
New York, Oct. 10. Speculation on the
stock exchange today was characterized
by increased activity, and the transactions
were heavier in volume than for a week
past; but there was nothing healthy in the
tone of the market, and the movement of
prices was not concerted. During the
early morning the tendency ot the market
was upwaid, but a raid ou Louisville had
the effect of gradually depressing the
entire list, aud before 11 o'clock a reaction
had set iu which carried prices down a
iractiom This was followed by a rally,
which was quickly succeeded by another

Six Tears Distant The Mathe

In the name of the God of Heaven,
Amen, I, the undersigned, a servant of
the Household of Faith, in the calm
exercise of sound human reason, in the
full realization of my responsibility to
God and man, in a spirit of anxiety not
to be scorned by any who caU them
selves Christians (and supported with
solid facts that no man on earth can
successfully dispute and which any
scholar may verify, aye, and which
every honest scholar is now in bounden
duty to indorse if so be ho will exam
ine this matter in behalf of his neigh
bors), and in the furtherance of due
and orderly but special preparation
therefor, do hereby announce the
sounding- of the twelfth stroke of "the
Midnight Hour" of the Christian dis
pensation. It is now 'Low Twelve fully come
and I call upon all who serve the liv
ing God to arise and trim their lamps,
for behold the Bridegroom also cometh!
Far be it from me to make such an
announcement without guarantees suf
ficient to establish my authority be
fore such as will examine them, and
further be it from all to whom these
presents come to misunderstand the
nature of this summons. I am no
prophet, but I am an interpreter, and
I testify to facts upon whose accuracy
all who will may become satisfied. To
this end I have labored hitherto aud
I do not hesitate to magnify my office
by every honest and legitimate method.
My aim is not to excite groundless
fears, or to traffic in credulity. I am
predicting no end to the world, and no
final crash of matter; but I do declare
the hastening of all human institu
tions towards that universal crisis
which is soon to measure every one of
them against the laws of the only God
Him of our own ancestors 1 And if
these human institutions shall be
found wanting at the august Assize
now in our own immediate future, I
solemnly declare they will be con
demned in Judgments, and inevitably
go down without appeal, into the
abyss of all dead things.
But let it also be understood that it
is no mere chapter of unaided human
progress that is thus at hand. It has
indeed its human phase whereby
violated law reaps the whirlwind of
its own punishment, but it also has
its divine and superhuman accompani
ments which will awe the world to
Now that which I declare I am also
able to prove, and that which I am able
to prove can be set forth in terms in

The 2520 years of "the times of tho
Gentiles" (7 of 360 each) are within five
and three-quarter years of their full
solar termination. Jerusalem, which
has been "trodden down" of them dur
ing this era, shall, at the end thereof,
be rebuilt upon her heaps and He who
cometh, according to His promise, will
save the tents of Judah first.
To the Jews, therefore, do I an
nounce the pending termination of the
desolation, and that Kodesh, the City
of Delight, shall once more be theirs,
and that the branch, shall flourish in
In the meantime the literal fulfill

the Ten Virgins will progress from now
on in an orderly and chronological
manner, beginning with the sixth
Terse of Matthew 25, at and to the
"set time" to which we have now ar
rived. There are twelve several events now
to transpire, in regular sequence, tak

and years, with a view to their neces

although the total time is relatively
short it will be full and sufficient for
the purpose, but not having- one in

In the ninth chapter of Daniel the
man (angel) Gabriel" gave the prophet
a measure of the "fime that should
stretch from certain grand events-nnto
Messiah the Anointed One. Let us
examine the matter:
Daniel 9:24-27 may be divided into
four sections which, with their inter
pretations, are 'as follows:
24. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy
people and upon thy holy city, to finish the
transgression, and to make an end o! sins, and
to make reconciliation for iniquity and to
bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seat
up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the
The seventy weeks (Hebrew Shabua)
referred to are found upon the strict
Post -Exilic Sabbatic scale of time.
They date from the first Jubilee year
celebrated after the dedication of the
Second Temple. The count was direct
ed to be made by the Prophet Zacha
riah (7, 8) in the fourth year of Da
rius Hystaspes, and began with the
next year, i. c., after all the periods of
70 years referred to in Zach. 7 and
8 had been fulfilled! This was the
year 3487 A. M., which was a Sabbatic
year, and counts as 1 on the scale of 50
years to reach the fiftieth or first Ju
bilee, which was, therefore, 3533 A.

years required 70 times 7 years490
years, sinco each Sabbatic year was
the last year of a block of seven years,
and after the first Jubilee year had
been reached every forty-ninth year
thereafter was both Sabbatic and
Jubilee, explaining what Josephus
meant by saying "tho forty-ninth
year is the fiftieth year." nencc

This was in the fifteenth year of Tiber
ius Cajsar in which year John the Immcr
ser came preaching in the wilderness.
The year of Tiberius began on the 19th
of August, and the Sabbath year be
gan at the new morn of the succeeding
autumnal equinox, exactly 1SGG solar
years ago, reckoning from our current
new moon of September 10-11, 1S93.
Now in this tenth Sabbath jubilee 3ear,
after the first one above referred to, tho
prophecy of Gabriel was consummated
by the anointing of Messiah the Prince
(Dan. 9: 24)' 1st by the water in which (
he was baptized, and 2d by the descent
of the Holy Spirit in the form of a I
dove. He was recognized by John
who testified to Him at once, and was j
acknowledged by the voice of God,
"Thou art my Son, the beloved, intheo '
I delighted." Now Jesus himself was j
when beginning about thirty years of I
age having become "30 years old" on j
the 24th of the third civil Hebrew month i
(2 of the winter solstice moon of 27
A. D.) with which this Sabbath jubilee
year began. He was thus of the Levit
ical legal age, and so ready to enter in
upon his ministry Sk "Lamb -without
spot or blemish."
25. Know therefore and understand, that
from the soinfc forth of the commandment to re
store and to build Jerusalem, unto the Messiah
the Prince, shall be seven weeks, and three score
and two weeks; the street shall be built again,
and tho wall, even in troublous times.
The year 4027 A. M. was also 7 and
6209 weeks of years, i. e., 7x69483
lunar years, to the instant, from tho
date recorded by Nehemiah (6:1, 5)
i. e., from the date at which the com
mandment to build the walls of Jeru
salem was "consummated" (as Motsa,
the Hebrew word translated "going
forth' implies)! A writ, decree, or com
mandment must be legally "served"and
"returned" before it can be filed. Tho
original decree of Cyrus was with refer
ence to the temple only, and was de
layed by hostile machinations for many
years; at last Ezra "accomplished" it
in 3543 A. M., from whence 69x7483
full solar j-cars fetch us to the same
identical day of the self-same Sabbath
jubilee, to wit, January 6 of the accept
able year 4026 A. M. Nevertheless, ia
its special sense Dan. 1:25 remained to
be fulfilled. Therefore, reports com
ing to the Nehemiah (113) led him to
make a direct request to Artaxerxes for
permission to build the walls and city,
and restore tho gates (2: 8-0) of Jeru
salem, and obtaining the authority
he accomplished the matter. This
was in the twentieth year of Artaxer
xes, to wit, 3557 A. M. Thus the very
date from which to reckon (the 25th of
ElulS557,A. M. Neh. 0:15), has been
before the equally blind eyes of Jews
and Christians for 2335 years. The
matter is now revealed in God's due
order. The count is verified upon un
broken lunar time, 4S3 lunar years' at
354.3070012 days each, fetching us to the
22d day of Tebeth of 4020 A. M. (Thurs
day, the Sth of January 29 A. D.) This
is at the date of the anointing of the
Saviour for His ministry; it being exact
ly two weeks after His birthday fi e.
80 years and 14 daj's old!) and His im
mersion took place at three p. m. on
that day! Thus Gabriels prediction to
Daniel, as to the 09 Sabbaths (oi lunar
years) from the accomplishment of trie
commandment to build the walls of the
city, began at the end of the 52 days
mentioned by Nehemiah, and the line
of time was hurled in an unerring
trajectory to the ";t time" foreor
dained by Him whose words are Mire
and none of which, can by any possibil
ity come back void. Nehcmiah's name,
"the Lord will conduct the man," is
sufficiently significant to have pointed
to him, and to this date 25th of Elol
3557 A. M., had not the veil been cast
upon us for a purpose, and I cbieflv re
joice, now that it is at Izsi made
known, in the fact th3t it will help onr
brothers of the tribe of Judah to per
ceive the truth and realize the fullness

This prophecy refers solely to the
length of the baviotir's ministry, and
wa-s fulfilled to the very hour. Thb
ministry, contrary to the universal ac
ceptance of modern Christians who
tak it to hare han tknws and aa'nulf
years, was exactly "three score and
two" literal "weeks" long, i. e., 62 times
7434 days long, no more, no less, and
he was "cut oU" at its termination,
'Tjut not for Himself," i. e., rather for
you, and for me, even for all men of all
conditions whatsoever, to be testified
in due season. The ministry began at
His double 'anointing, by "water and
the Spirit, upon Thursday, January S,
29 A. D., at three p. m., andlasfed until
Thursdaj-, March IS, 29 A. D. (i4th
.of Nisau of that year) at three
p. m., at which time He said: "Ifc is
finished." poured but His spirit that
we might all bo brought back, in
due time, at least, into tha full
stature of Adam before the fall. Now
tha resurrection was upon Sunday, the
21st of Mareh tho third day after tho
crucifixion, i. e., at the vernal equnox
of A. D. 29, upon the same scale that
this current year 1893 A. J), has its
autumnal equinox 1S04J years later.
Upon the other familiar scales of time
it was at the vernal equinox of 4742,
J. P.S05 Ol3mp.the first rears
of the 103 01ymp.7Sl A. U. C. (Varro)
77S A. U. C. (Polybius) -776 A. TJ. a
(Fabius)776 Nab.. Moreover, aU
this was necessary to fulfill the types
of the law, for, as a priest, after the
order of Melchisedecthe Savktir had to
be "thirty years of age" at tho en
trance on His ministry, which year of
high priesthood had to be a tenth "jubi
lee after a prominent one." In it He
preached redemption, and yet no man
redeemed Him! And so tho year
passed, and at its termination Ho be
came as it were, i. e, as to His priesthood
"one year old," i. e. a yearling, i. e. "a
Lamb of the first year," and ready for
sacrifice. Who, verily, henceforth can
be so blind as not to see that herein
all things met their antitype, and that
hereby is manifest at least the faith
fulness of God!
23. And the people of the prince that
shall como shall destroy the city arid the sanc
tuary; aad the end thereof shall be with a
flood, and unto the end of the war desolations
27. And he shall confirm the covenant with
many for ono eek; and in tho midst of the
week he shall cause the sacrillce aad tho obla
tion to cease, nnd for tho overspreading of
abominations he shall mako it desolate, even
until the consummation, and that determined
shall be poured upon tha desolate.
Finally, the rest of the chapter (Dan.
9: 20-27) refers to the prince of the
Romans, who came against Judah,
I and destroyed the city and the sanctu
ary, in 40G7 A. M . which was 7 times

the date of Ezra's commission in 3543

first year. Here the 'weeks" are "gen

by Titus was also t eclipse cycle of

M., all inclusive being 052 years.
All of these things, aud more, also. I

rerify this, and as every one accp.
the almanac without question I submit
that it is the height of folly to cavil at
the selfsame data when used to effect
a practical demonstration of history!
At any rate let tho scribes, Pharisees
and hypocrites, who pretend to have a
controversy with my anxious figures,
note well my lino of entrenchment!
Henceforth their quarrel is rather with
Greenwich and Washington, and v,hn
they shall have overthrown the sound
astronomical wisdom of tho Anglo
Saxon race, by which all those who go
down to the sea in ships do well to
place their faith, it will be time enouch
for me to rectify my data! Until tlu it
my own duty is plain, and it3 guaran
tee among sensible men is established.
The conclusion of the matter is this:
The data given in Table it bomg al
ready accepted by the scio ntfiic world,
the last line of Tabic- A must be eqan.l
ly acceptable. Hut if that line is ac
cepted then the whole 2,o0 years
Miown in Table A must also be accept
ed as there i.et forth and harmonLcd!
This, then, being an impregnable poi-
i tloii, I leave it io my God Ui awaken
my neighbors to tho gvnius, honcstv
nnd concern with which I testify to
I His eternal Truth, nnd to their eternal
' peril if they, having eyes and cars

dignified ridicule, or careless neglect,
as has characterized itrf recoption dur

A Social 31 li t pp.
An a musing story was told tome years
ago of a certain Madame do S , a
French woman of high social ambi
tions. Sho was anxious to become ac
quainted with aud bo known as the
friend of persons high in rank, nnd nh
left no stone unturned to further her
interests in that direction. Returning
from the country to Paris one day in n
railway carriage, as tho ptory runs,
she fell into conversation with a
remarkably well-dressed but quiet and
reserved man who sat ou tho cat
opposite. After awhile sho chanced to
j mention impressively that sho had
observed that Countess Lemoine was a
passenger in the next carriage, and, to
j her satisfaction, hho found that tho
fcutleman to whom bho had been talk-
i ing was lnumaieiy acquainted witu
her. Of the countess establishment
and circle of friends he told her a great
many interesting particulars. So
pleased was sho with tho talk on thin
bubject proving her acquaintance, sho
thought, to be a man of decidedly high
position in Parisian society that sho
ventured to make what was for her a
bold stroke, nnd. asking him for his
card, politely requested hi company at
her next soiree. The train arrived. Ma
dame dc S. alighted on tho sanio p'at
fonn with the countess, hho looked
then to see tho'- familiar recognition
she expected between the lady of rank
and her new friend. But what was her
aurprifio when the counter, holding
up her finger, beckoned unceremo
niously to him, and said: "John, see to
the baggage!" Her distinguished
friend was the. counte&i' man-&ervast.
