Leavenworth, Kan., April S. Young
Charles Lamborn and Annie Lamborn,
his sister are in jail here charged with
Complicity in the murder of their father
have made full and complete confession
of guilt While not admitting that
they were the actual slayers of their
aged father, they confess to having act
ively assisted the man who struck the
fatal blow. This man is Thomas Dav
enport, the lover of the girl and the
friend of the brother, who is also a pris
oner in the county jail here.
Old man Lamborn was murdered at
his ranch in Fall Leaf township, this
county, on the night of February 10.
According to the confession made by
lis children today they left home on
the night of the murder, ostensibly to
attend a neighborhood dance. At a
trysting place near the Lamborn farm
they met young Davenport. There it
was agreed that the aged father, who
had forbidden Davenport to visit his
daughter and who, though wealthy, was
commonly accused of making his two
children slaves to the drudgery of farm
" iife, should be put out of the way. Dav
enport rode directly to the Lamborn
house, crept through a rear door and
with one blow of an axe dispatched the
old man as he sat in a chair by his fire
side, reading his daily papers.
Davenport returned to the trysting
place, reported the deed as done, and
the two men then returned to the house,
Jeaving the girl to wait. At the house
che men burned the dead man's will by
which he had disposed of an estate val
ued at 530,000.
After this they joined the girl and the
three proceeded to the dance, where the
trio seemed to enjoy themselves with
v the others.
The dance over they all went back to
the Lamborn farm house and went to
bed. It was not until the next morn
ling that they reported having found
their father murdered in his kitchen. It
was learned tonight that the arrests
yesterday resulted from a confession
made by Annie Lamborn to a Mrs. Chas.
Shaefir of Kansas City, who frequent
ly visited with the Lamborns and who
had borrowed money from the father.
To ease her stricken conscience the girl
told Mrs. Shaeffer the story of the mur
der, after exacting a promise of secrecy
Mrs. Shaeffer and her husband inform
ed the authorities. After the arrests
the brother and sister -were not allowed
t3 communicate. Notwithstanding that
their confessions today were made sep
arately they agree as to every detail.

Cincinnati, O., April 8. The Commer

Philadelphia date, from Hon. W. J.
Harrity, chairman of the Democratic
national executive committee, in sup
port of ex-Governor Robert E. Patter
son of Pennsylvania as Democratic can
didate for president. Mr. Harrity says:
"The Democratic candidate must be
a man of broad views, undoubted integ
rity and with an inflexible purpose to
meet the highest demands of the posi
tion. In Mr. Patterson will be found all
the qualifications of such a leader.
Nothing in his private life or official
career has called for explanation or
equivocation, though his every act has
been closely scrutinized by hostile and
desperate political interests in more
than one exciting contest. Twice at
general elections has he carried the city
of Philadelphia, the Gibraltar of Repub
licanism of the country for the position
of city comptroller. The office of gov
ernor of the commonwealth of Penn
sylvania has been filled by a Democrat
but twice in the last thirty-five years
and each time the victory was -won with
Governor Patterson as the candidate."
His letter of 3,500 words is a careful
development and amplification of this
brief extract from it.
TWO CONVENTIONS A DAY
Republicans and Democrats Together In
Portland. Ore., April 8. Both the Re
publican and Democratic state conven
tions will meet in this city tomorrow
for the purpose of electing delegates to
the national conventions and nominat
ing presidential electors and one justice
of the supreme court. At the state elec
tion on June , there will be chosen a
legislature which will elect a successor
to J. H. Mitchell in the United States
The Republican state convention will
undoubtedly make a declaration on the
money question on the lines of the na
tional Republican convention of 1S92.
There is a strong sentiment among the
delegates for declaring for a gold stan
dard, but it is believed the majority of
the delegates favor a declaration for bi
metallism to the extent that the parity
of both metals be maintained. There
are two sets of delegates to the Repub
lican convention from Multonomah
county and a contest will arise over
seating them. In the district conven
tion today the same sets of delegates
that have been elected to the state con
vention contested for admission and
the controversy was settled by giving
each side a one-half representation.
This will probably be a precedent for
the state convention.
The Democratic state platform will
favor the free and unlimited coinage of
silver at the ratio of 16 to L The sec
retary of the Democratic state commit
tee tonight said: "The convention will
declare for free silver by a vote of 4 to 1"
W. R. Ellis was nominated for con
gress tonight by the Republicans of the
Second district. Wallace McCamant
and C. W. Parish were elected delegates
to the St. Louis convention. A resolu

NOW TURPIE TALKS
PAYS HIS 3JE3PEOT3 TO SENATORS
SHEBMAlf AND 0THEB3.
He Does not at all Like the Way the Cuban
Resolutions Have Been Handled by
Their Most Distinguished Senatorial
Advocates and Does Not Hesitate to
Say So He Imasiues a Duel Retween
Dc Lama and a Senatorial Champion,
Managing to Extract From His Conceit
Washington, April S. Senator Tur
pie's speech on Cuba was the event of
the day in the senate, and in many re
spects It was the most picturesque and"
vehement utetrance heard on the sub
ject. The senator had an inexhausti
ble vocabulary and a bitterly satirical
style. While arguing for radical ac
tion on Cuba, even to the extent of
sending a fleet to Cuban waters, much
of Mr. Turple's speech was given to
sarcasm and ridicule of the course of
Mr. Sherman and Mr. Lodge in manag
ing the Cuban resolutions. The sena
tor created much amusement by his
portrayal of Senator Lodge as a war
rior about to fight a duel with Minister
Dupuy de Lome of Spain.
Here was a war raging for a j'ear,
Mr. Turpie said, and yet in the twenty
or thirty speeches by Mr. Lodge and a
like number by Mr. Sherman before he
retired to the cAj'e of Abdalla, all that
could be learned was the ejaculations,
"There is a war in Cuba," and "Great
Is the Cuban question."
Mr. Sherman sat across the aisle,
smiling at times, while Mr. Turpie pro
ceeded with his vigorous arraignment
of what he considered the mismanage
ment of the Cuban resolutions.
Mr. Turpie then proceeded to describe
the condition of Cuba today. Two
thirds of the Island was within the em
brace of the revolution, the other third
was debatable ground, where skirmishes
and fighting was going on. This, he
said, had not even been touched upon
by Mr. Sherman, although a vital con
sideration. "That senator has appeared as afraid
as General Weyler to look into this
question, to go over the territory. He
has not even looked over the fence."
Mr. Turpie took up in detail the con
ditions existing in Cuba. He conceded
that exact official Information was mea
ger. Yet the "minute men of the press"
and the mass of general correspondence
on the subject established certain gen
eral essential principles showing a con
dition of war existing. The senate
said he had personally collected data.
He had kept tally of Talds by the Span
iards on country stores until they ran
into scores. He had noted the raids
Involving attacks on (women and chil
dren. From this data, he said, he drew
the first essential conclusion, that the
country store, that type of civilization,
was widely established throughout the
territory occupied by the Insurgents.
The existence of the country store
meant that there were no bandits and
pirates, as charged by Spanish officials,
no thieves and burglars; that the debt
or and creditor of the store was present.
In short that the reign of justice, the
-first requisite to social organization, ex
WEYLER AND THE PRIESTS.
The senator referred to General Wey
ler's amnesty offered to priests. Gen
eral Weyler paused In his campaign

the foreign relations committee Sher

lines who would yield obedience to
From this circumstance, Mr. Turpie
said he established an esesntlal princi
ple. Where there "were priests, there
were parishes. Where there were par
ishes, there were people men, -women
and children. In short, this proclama
tion of amnesty from Weyler establish
ed that a God-fearing people with their
priests and parishes existed within the
At one point. In speaking of Weyler's
atrocities, the senator exclaimed :"Cifba
will be lost to Spain," and added, "I
retract the 'will be Cuba Is lost to Spain
and will never be regained."
AN IiLVGINARY DUEL.
Mr. Turpie created great amusement
by a word picture of Mr. Lodge as a
warrior about to have a duel with the
Spanish minister. The Massachusetts
senator had come into the chamber and
denied the assertion of the Spanish min
ister and denounced the minister's di

proceeded Mr. Turpie. "It seemed only
necessary to select the weapons and
name the seconds. I was deeply anxious
that our champion should be fully
armed and not be mistaken for a mer
harlequin -with a buckler of leather and
a sword of lath." "But." added Mr.
Turpie, "a friend near me said, 'there
will be no fight.'
"The senator's demonstration wa3 not
really one threatening war. It all
came from his fondness for a certain
confectionary puffs not tutt! fruti or
ices but puffs, plain puffs."
Amid the suppressed laughter of sen
ators, Mr. Turpie told of the dangers
.threatening Mr. Lodge from too many
puffs. Next he turned his attention to
Minister Dupuy de Lome's diplomatic
indiscretion in criticizing- through the
press the senator from Massachusetts
(Lodge), who was a "post graduate of
the jingo school of omais fence."
Mr. Turpie said the Spanish minis
ter appeared to be unfamiliar with tbe
"Pigmies, though puffed and perched
on Alps are Pigmies stilL"
