reply to his inquiries received positive assur
ance there is no fever here, and that no appre
hensions are felt that there will be any. In

cities in the South, notably Texas, asking if
the fever prevails here, and threats to quaran
tine against St. Louis. To these questions the
mayor has replied in substanco as above. All

Show Clemency to Redmond Under the
WASHINGTON, Aug. 19.The following tele
grams explain themselves:
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.Hon. C. L. North
rop, United States district attorney, Green
ville, S. C.: I have your dispatch in regard to
Redmond. His frauds and violence led direct
ly to the killing of Ladd. Have no terms to
make with him while our officers are either in
carcerated or in jeopardy. I am surprised that
Earl should appear for Redmond, considering
the fact that he was retained by the United
States to defend Kane, and others whose present
misfortunes are attributed to the very act
which Earl would have to defend in Redmond.
(Signed) GREEN B. RAUM, ComVr.
Hon. Wm. Earl, special attorney, Greenville:
In reply to your dispatch I will say that the
apologists of Redmond show him to have been
a violator of law, and of the most desperate
character, pursing the business of defrauding
the government for a livlihood, and shooting
officers without mercy who undertook his ar
rest. His gross neglect led directly to the
death of Ladd. I cannot consent to grant any
leniency to him while deputies Kane and
others are incarcerated or in jeopardy. A lit
tle leniency by the State government toward
United States officers would seem at this junc
ture worthy of consideration.

The Investigation Not Ilelng in Progress,
and the "Globe" Failing to Arrive. Made
a Dull Monday.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
ST. PETER, Minn., Aug. 19.It has been a
remarkable dull day at St. Peter, for the inves
tigating committee has not been in session, and
people had well nigh exhausted the subjects
brought under particular notice by Saturday's
proceedings. What rendered it more particu
larly dull was the fact that the GLOBE did not
reach here, only to subscribers, every copy be
ing bought up on the train before arriving
here, and consequently people who were anx
ious to know what the GLOBE had to say about
it, were obliged to await the leisure of their
neighbors and borrow their paper. The com
mittee are all here now except Senator Edger
ton, Senator Morton and Doran having come in
by this evening's train, and Mr. Edgerton will
be here by midnight. The committee will
proceed with their labors to-morrow.

filed his voluntary petition in bankruptcy to
day. His liabilities, amounting in the aggre
gate to $315,000, are all secured by mortgages
on his real estate, valued at $503,000. This
valuation is about two-thirds of the appraised
value of the property made when the mort
gages were executed. There are some other
small accounts and some endorsements set out
in the petition, but no unsecured debts of any
character. The proceeding does not
in any way affect the Journal, itB management,
or accounts. The paper will be published as
heretofore in the name of E. B. Martindale &
Co., being the firm name adopted by the pub
lishers before Geo.C. Hitt was appointed a pro
visional assignee. The Thorpe block, the resi
dence property and the Journal property have
been sold subject to the incumberance on the

gaged to secure the same is valued at $328,000.

THE MONETARY CONGRESS.
PARIS, Aue. 19.At to-day's sitting of the
international monetary conference Groesbeck
explained the position of the United States
treasury, showing its advance towards resump
tion of specie payment. All the delegates then
explained the monetary condition of their re
spective countries. Goshen said although Eng
land has a gold standard she is greatly inter
ested in the matter of silver retaining its
mouetary condition. He believed the world
would remain divided into two parts, one hav*
ing a gold the other a double standard.
He maintained there was no harm
in this being the case. The Swiss
representative supported Goshen's views. M'.
Mecs, representative of Holland, thought the
United States would only be supported by na*
tions laboring under forced paper currency.
Leon Say, French minister of finance, Baid the
monetary question would remain too obscure
for France to take sides so long as Germany
had a considerable stock of Bilver which she
could throw upon the market of France. He,
however, approved of the initiative having
been taken by the United States.

NEW YORK, Aug. 19.Gen. Butler ad
dressed a meeting" of several work
ingmen associations this afternoon. He
said there had not been a fair division in this
country, or within the last' generation, between
capital and enterprise and labor, for the reason
that most of the money invested in enterprise
was borrowed capital and must pay large inter
est, and then when that interest was to be got
again, it must be got out of ..labor. The whole
legislation of this country the past sixteen
years has been in favor of money to men of
money. Let all property be taxed just once
and no more, then the taxes would
grow less. He suggested as a
remedy for overproduction caused by the ex
tensive use of machinery, cutting down the
hours of labor to one hour a day if necessary.
Shun any man who speaks of the destruction
of property as the destruction of BO much
labor. Don't send any man to Congress who
shall vote that a man with capital, doing
nothing for the good of his kind, shall have a
better opportunity in society than the man
who works eight or ten hours a day. Elect men
only who would work for the workingman.

RUSH CITY, Minn., Aug. 19.The saddest
calamity that ever befel our little village oc
curred this morning at about 8 o'clock, Miss
Anna Ruberg being accidentally shot and
killed by Miss Gracie Pratt, daughter of Capt.
Ft H. Pratt, of this village. It happened as
follows: Miss Ruberg, daughter of John Ru
berg, of this place, Was at Mr. Pratt's store to
purchase some ribbon, and Miss Gracie Pratt
was attending to the store all alone. The girls
stood chatting and laughing together examin
ing the ribbon, when Gracie espied a small
cartridge pistol on the shelf behind her, aud
thinking to show it to Anna, handed it down, but
just as it struck the counter, the hammer hit
something which caused it to go off while the
pistol was within a foot or so of Miss Ruberg,
THE BALL ENTERING HER HEAD
on the right side, and she1
fell forward upon
the counter, then upon the floor, and did not
utter a word. She wan struck senseless, and
never knew what hurt her. Miss Pratt was
terribly frightened, and uttered scream after
scream, and ran into the house, telling her
folks what had happened. The neighbors and
people hearing the shot and screaming rushed
into the store, Mr. Ruberg with them, and his
grief was terrible. The girl was placed unon a
coHch, and Dr. Lamb called, but nothing could
be done for her. She died in about an hour,
without having recovered her senses. The body
was taken to the Swedish Lutheran church, and
the sad news communicated as gently as possi
ble to her mother. The shock was terrible, and
the mother is nearly bereft of her senses,
and calling her daughter. Miss Pratt, who so
unfortunately was the cause of the untimely
death of her school-mate, and her mother, Mrs.
Pratt, are nearly crazy with grief. The shock
has cast a gloom over the town that will be
felt for a long time to come. Mr. Ruberg has
one other daughter, quite young yet, but the
oldest, Anna, was the pet. She was just past
15 years' old, and budding into woman
hood, a good hearted girl and a dutiful daugh

DOUBLE MURDER IN lOWASS&SiW'ssi:
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Aug. 19.A cold blooded
double mnrder was committed near Pacific
Junction, twenty miles south of this city, Sat
urday evening. The victims were John Ty

distant, and were found at the side of
the road litewdly riddled with shot.
Doran was known by his fellow laborers
to have a hundred dollars on his person when
he quit work Saturday evening, and it is sup
posed this was the incentive to the deed. Cir
cumstances point to a young man named Jno.
McCreary, another workman at the quarry, as
the guilty party. He was arrested to-day. Also
his father and brother. Young McCreary left
the quarry Saturday with a shot gun and when
taken into custody he had an unusual quantity

VIEWS OF POLITICS.
BUFFALO, Aug. 19.Postmaster|General Key,
speaking of the rumors of his candidacy as
governor of Tennessee, by the anti-inflation
Democrats and Republicans, says: I have never
given it very serious thought as 1 never have
aspired to be governor of Tennessee. As to
being associated with General Grant on a Pres
idential ticket in 1880, the postmaster general
answers they would have to find something a
great deal worse to say before making
him very angry. With reference to Southern
politics e said the tendency of the Democracy
was towards an exclusive legal tender currency
and repudiation that the greenback movement
would make no progress at the South outside
of the Democracy that the success of the
Southern Democracy in national affaire would
doubtless result in the repeal of the resump
tion act and general demoralization of the
financial situation. As to South Carolina,
specially, he looked for a fair election, and
generally throughout the South, and
for Republican gains in Congressmen not
anticipated at the North. Regarding
the Southern war claims he did not think the
awards would be greatly increased in case of
Democratic control of the government, as they
weie based on representation of loyalty during
the war, and nearly ail those who are billing to
make affidavit of loyalty have done so. Post
master General Key and Postmaster James, of
New York, left for New York this morning.
Brief Session of the CommitteeThe Fam

NEW YORK, Aug. 19.The Potter investigat
ing committee resumed its session to-day
John E. Leete and his apparent insanity was.
generally discussed. His wife and children are
sick with yellow fever in New Orleans, which
with the excitement of testifying before the
committee, may have caused his temporary de
rangement of mind.
A dispatch was received from Gov. Kellogg in
Chicago, denying several statements made by
Leete in his testimony, and stating that Leete
had been found for months past begging for
office and latterly threatening and denouncing
him because he did not receive one. Any state
ment that Packard and himself or leading Re
publicans ever took Leete into hearty councils
would be received with derision in Louisiana.
As Mr. Horn, who was expected to testify,
did not put in an appearance, the sargeant-at
arms was directed to compel his attendance be
fore the committee to-morrow.
Gen. Butler then called attention to his re
quest made last week regarding the failure and
refusal of Senator Stanley Matthews to appear
before the committee. He now moved that the
fact of his service by subpoena and his failure
to come before the committee be entered on the
minutes and that this committee report him
to the House for their action.
Mr. Potter said that he had lost sight of
Gen. Butler's motion last week, but remem
bered it and would entertain it now. He put
the resolution to committee and it was unani
mously carried, to report Senator Matthews to
the House as being in contempt.
There being no witness before the committee,
an adjournment was taken till to-morrow.

to Mr. Murphy's, near by, and her daughter
told Mrs. M. what bad happened. The other
children went to where Mr. and
Mrs. Kempfer were, on a farm
near the depot, and told them. Mr.
K. took Cora and went to the 10 o'clock train,
which came in soon after, but looking through
it she identified no one on board. Coming up
town, Sheriff GliRpin was sent for and search
was made, when Cora identified the man. It
was Samuel Ash, and he was standing in his
uncle yard. Mr.. K. sent Cora to tell the
sheriff to come, and stopped himself, at Mr.
Joy corner, to watch the man.
Seeing that he was watched, he came across
the street to Kempfer and asked if he was
looking for him. He replied that he thought
he was the one who had insulted his children.
Young Ash said he was, and was sorry for what
he had done and would like to compromise the
matter. Mr. Kempfer replied it was not in hi*
power to do it, and they walking up
toward Ghspin's house young Ash gave
himself up. This was at 11 o'clock. The
young man expressed himself as very penitent
at the foolish act he had done, and that he did
not reahze how bad it was, though he had not
laid hands on any one. At noon the sheriff
discovered he had lost his watch while search
ing for young Ash before his arrest, and he
now took his prisoner to help search for it, who
did so as faithfully as he did himself. Return

near J. N. Cheney's residence. The last two
had come from Murphy's home, nearly
a mile distant. The former had
joined them in town. Capt. M sup
posing the man to be a tramp, had taken
his Bhot gun, one barrel loaded with chicken
shot, with him, and bad said he would shoot
the fellow if he found him, but when told by
B. O. Kempfer who he was, and that he was in
the hands of the sheriff, the latter thought he
had abandoned his desperate idea, and only
wished to see the prisoner. The three men
tioned coming up to where the sheriff and pris
oner were. Murphy asked the latter if ho wan
the man who tried to do something to th chil
dren, he replying he was, and was sorry for it
then Murphy remarked: "He ought to b*
shot." The sheriff said: "Better let the law
take its course," to which Murphy replied, "I
think BO." The same moment he turned to
young Ash and said: "Wouldn't yon like to
look in the muzzle of a gun?" and tipped his
gnn toward him in an oblique manner, the stock
near the ground, tho muzzle toward Ash'
breast, and in this position it was exploded.
The charge struck the victim's right arm about
midway between the hand and elbow, carrying
away a piece to the depth of the bone, and en
tered his breast between the ribs, a little to the
left of the breast bone and a little below tho
nipples. Murphy claims it was an accident,
and gave himself up, but young Ash says it was
done on purpose, and so claims whenever it is
mentioned. Sheriff Glispin was taken perfect
