FMDAY. OCT. 8. 1880.
It is n mistake to suppose tlinl
criminals of higher grade, like bur
glars, forgers ami bank robbers, are
coarse, ignorant, vulgar men. If
they were, they would not succeed
their dishonorable trade requires in
telligence, mental training and a
large amount of self-restraint. Many
of them have been clever mechanics,
while some arc cultured and of good
antecedents. Louis C. Clermont,
the notorious bank robber, who died
three years ago, was a Southcncr by
birth, his parents being rich and
liiidilv respectable. He was a col
lege graduates; but lie was without
principle and extravagant,
lather got tired of furnishin
with money, and he detennined to
get it for himself by what he thought
to be the easiest means, lie became
acquainted with several notorious
forgers and cheek raisers, adopted
their calling and prolitcd by it. lie
went abroad, and in Germany fell
in with Max Shinburn, a, noted bank
robber, who got rich by plying his
profession here, crossed the sea,
purchased the title of baron and
settled down as a member of the old
aristocracy. Clermont probably
gained valuable knowledge from
Shinburn. Ho returned to his na
tive land, took up his abode m
Pliiladslpliia, and by his handsome
person, agreeable manners and
bright conversation gained some so
cial position. I lo assumed to be a
Cuban refugee, and his dark eyes,
hair and complexion, with his
llucncy in Spanish,, assisted the as
sumption. He paid court to a pretty
widow, Sirs. Joseph Dumel, and
married her. They decided to go
abroad for a bridal tour. She got
her valuables, together with $20,
000 in cash, and they were ready to
start, when lie asked her to carry a
note somewhere for him, while he
took charcc of her tilings. When
she returned he had disappeared.
lie was engaged in several bank
robberies afterward under the name
of Col. Ralph Pollard, formerly of
the Louisiana tigers. In one of
these he was arrested, sent to prison
for twelve years, and ended his life
George Leslie, alias George How
ard, was another educated bank
robber, who had an extraordinary
career. Born in this State, he re
ceived a classical education in the
West. He went into business in
Milwaukee and San Francisco, but,
not relishing it, joined several accom
plished burglars, and excelled them
in shrewdness, coolness and enter
prise. He took part, in robbing the
Beneficial Savings fund, Pliiladcl
Sl, 000,000, and afterward cut a pro
minent figure there as a gentleman
of scholarly tastes and independent
means. He spoke several languages,
and his address was insinuating and
wholly deceptive, lie married a
line woman of position, who was hor
rified when she learned the true
character of her husband. He was
suspected of killing two cashiers,
and of various big robberies, which
he conducted so adroitly as to avoid
punishment. He was' found dead
not long ago by a Long Island high
way, with a pistol at his side and a
builet through his head. The evi
dent intent was to give the impres
sion that he had committed suicide,
but there is little doubt that he had
been killed by some of his compa
nions in crime, from jealousy. He
was a great favorite with, some wo
men of a certain sort, and made the
most of his favoritism. N. Y. Com
WICCINS KNEW IT.
Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 9th. Prof,
E. Stone Wiggins of this city, has
submitted documentary and other
proofs to the Minister of Marine,
going to show that lie predicted as
far back as March of last year the
earthquakes' which are prevailing in
the South. Ho also announced May
13th last, the approach of subter
ranean disturbance in the same lo
cality. The Professor declares that
the worst has not yet been reached,
and claims that the greatest strain
will be felt between this period 'and
the middle of October. The South
ern States will again bo visited by
earthquakes, and the disturbances
will extent! to ualilprnia ami boutli
America. On being asked for hjs
reasons for making the predictions,
"Wiggins said: "Earthquakes aro
caused by the shifting of the earth's
center of gravity. Suppose this
center of gravity to be moved, say
one milo from her normal center of
gravity, op from tlie center of
volume; now what must JiappPU?
Why, tho parts of her surface tit tho
end of tho longer axis will be
heavier and tho parts at tho end of
tho shorter axis will bo lighter than
normal. These disks, therefore will
grind upon each other, generating
heat and lava; hence earthquakes
and vplpauic eruptions. If our
little visible satellite wpro brought
down and slid around the earth from,
east to west, in twenty-four hours
earthquakes will occur of such vio
lence as to render our globe unin
habitable." Prof. Wiggins claims
that thoso fprces were in nction'at
the end of August. Both tic earth's
satellilies, two of which he says ex
ist, were then in perigee. Jupiter
was also near his inferior conjunc
tion, which, in u limited degree, in
creased the strain. S, F. Bulletin,
BRITISH RULE IN INDIA.
Now York, September 28 Tho
Tribune. in an editorial on "Silver
and British Utile in India," says:
Tho consequences of tho growing
poverty in India under British mis
rulo concerns the whole world. If
India is growing less able to bear
her rapidly increasing burdens, less
able to pay her rapidly swelling
balances yearly to England, it must
inevitably come to pass that the
country will be less able to take sil
ver from the western world. The in
crease in the expenses of govern
ment and in balances duo to Eng
land has perfectly coincided in time
witli the fall in tlie price of silver,
and greater exactions with greater
poverty must be expected to cause
a greater fall. Add to this fact that
by the breaking down of manufac
tures in India, by which millions of
people formerly gained their .liveli
hood, Great Britain makes n mar
ket for British cottons, and cotton
sent to India lessens tho amount of
silver that India can afford to pay,
and silver is directly connected with
the vicious policy which British
theorists here are laboring to estab
lish in this country, also for British
advantage. S. F. Chronicle.
BISMARCK'S LATEST SCHEME.
New York, September 29 T. P.
O'Connor's cable special to the Star
from. London of September L'8lh
says: llcports current to-night at
the clubs point to an extraordinary
attempt on the part of Bismarck to
cripple British influence in the pre
sent crisis in European affairs, and
the center of interest again shifts
from Bulgaria to Egypt. Bismarck,
with a view of inducing 1 ranee lo
enter into a friendly understanding
with Germany and abandon her
schemes of a war of revenge, has
undertaken, according to reports, to
direct the attention of French states
men lo a scheme of foreign con
quest, the main object of which is
tlie ejection of the British from
Egypt and tho annexation of that
country to the French Empire. Bis
marck's Journal d' Alsace openly
advises the French to prepare for a
campaign to drive the English out
of Egypt ami seize the short cut to
India. An emissary sent by Bis
marck to Paris lias been preaching
the sanio doctrine to M. Do Frcyei
net, with whom he had three inter
views before he returned to Ger
many. The Dehuls frankly adopts
WHO WAS TO BLAME?
London, Sept. 28. Advices from
Hongkong state that there is a dis
pute between tlie Methodist and
Catholic missionaries in China as to
which denomination is responsible
for the indiscretions that incited the
recent wholesale massacre of Chris
tians in the province of Se Chsun.
The Catholic Bishop of Chun King
attributed tlie outbreak in that city
to the indiscreet conduct of tlie
Methodists, and tlie latter declare
that the Chun King massacre of
native Christians ami the destruc
tion of their churches and property
was due entirely to the popular in
dignation aroused by tho Catholic
Bishop, who, the Methodists say,
persisted in the use of yellow tiles
in the construction of his new cathe
dral, in spite of repeated warnings
that it was dangeroiis to do so, be
cause it outraged the native faith
by making common use of a color
venerated as sacred, and reserved
exclusively for the use of tlie Em
peror. S. F. Chronicle.

by a cold sticky perspiration. As tho
liver and kidneys become more and

and tliu usual treatment proves entirely
unavailing against tho latter agonising
disorder, Tho origin of this malady is
indigestion or dyspepsia, and a siiiuli

"Gentlemen, it is with great pleas,
ure that I add my testimony to the
.wonderful effects of Seigel's Syrup. For
years 1 nail been suffering from bilious
attacks, winch began with giddiness;
then a mist would come before my eyes,
so that I should not be able to recognise
any one or anything at the distance of a
yard or two from my face. This would
bo followed by excessive trcinbllug ol
my knees, so that I could not stand
without support; after which a severe
headache would occur, lasting often two
or three' ihigs. 1 have tried various
remedies for these distressing symptoms,
but until I tried Seigel's Syrup I bad no
relief. Since then 1 have hail excellent
health in ovcry respect, and if ever I
feel a headache coining on I take one
dose of the Syrup, which arrests it.
Hoping that this testimonial may be the
menus of Inducing others (who suffer us
I used) to tiy the Syrup, as I feel sure
they will receive speedy beuellt and
ultimately be cured, 1 beg to remain,
