CINCINNATI, Sept. 16.The following ac
count of a most horrible murder is given in a
dispatch from Houston, Texas. The wife of
George Lynch, a respected citizen of Berkeley,
Texas, died some weeks ago, leaving an infant.
Lynch had seven other children, the oldest,
Clemie, seventeen years old. On Friday night
the family retired as usual, a lamp being left
in the main room. At midnight the father was
awakened by a pistol shot striking him in the
breast. He sprang up and saw a masked man
standing in the middle of the room,
pointing a pistol at him. The assas
sin fired again, the ball entering be
neath the collar bone. Lynch fell un
conscious. When he recovered consciousness
he found himself lying in the lane outside the
premises. The assassin thinking Lynch dead,
seized a hatchet and put the children who were
witnesses out of the way. He assaulted Clemie,
buried the hatchet in her head, also crushed
the skulk of three other children and then set
fiie to the house. The distracted father saw the
burning house fall on the eight bodies of his
dead children. The bodies were afterwards ex
humed and an inquest held when the hatchet
wounds were discovered upon the skulls of the
children. It is thought Lynch will recover. A
man named Boatware, with whom Lynch had
had a difficulty, is suspected of the crime.

Herr Reicbensporger, ultramontaine leader,

tive spirit. He wished to have it referred to a
committee. Herr Bebel, socialistic, denied
there was any connection between the attempt
against the emperor's life and socialists. He

tion of property, only its modification. Count
Von Eulenberg showed that Nobeling had de
clared himself a socialist. The socialistic press
had defended him and Hoedel and had ap
proved recent murders in Russia. Herr Bam

Bebel's speech uncontrovertible proof of the
necessity of taking measures against socialism.
He desired the bill, however, should be limited
in its operation to certain acts, and should be
otherwise amended. He moved it be referred
to a committee of twenty-one members. The

RED WING, Sept. 16.To round this fair en
terprise off smoothly, and send it on its way
rejoicing wiJi heartfelt gratitude into the lap
of another year, something more should be
said of the finis. Saturday saw the last of the
first, and the day will be remembered, for it
was a happy conclusion to a good beginning.
No doubt all who were in any way connected
with the fair, as exhibitors, or in an official
capacity, felt a great relief when the end came.
Like beavers they worked and they were re
warded. The fair was a success but
faith and hard work did it. They
simply accomplished all they started
in for, and a little more. They have squared
their accounts and none of them are made
bankrupt. If the truth was known the associ
ation is ahead and out of the wilderness.
The last day five or six hundred people per
ambulated over the grounds and through the
buildings, saw the sights and were not crowded.
Several sharp shooters came up from Lake City
and broke a few glass balls the Great Western
band and the Sangerbunds paraded from the
city to the grounds, gave us some excellent
music both vocal and instrumental, looked the
enterprise over and returned to Red Wing to
put in the night and the Sabbath just as happy
as the jolly Germans always are.
At about 4 p. M. the work of removal began
there was hurrying to and fro, and the scene
was a busy one. Many of the exhibitors al
lowed their goods to remain until to-day.
In the mechanical department, suspended
above the Red Wing Printing company's job
press, the little engine and the Red Wintf iron
foundry exhibits was a flag beaiingthe follow
ing motto: "The printing press, steam engine,
aud iron foundrythe three pillars of civil
ization." The illustration was apt and highly
FANCY WORK AND FLORAL DISPLAY.
In the centre of the main buildirg where the
floral display was established, a pagoda-shaped
work stood, composed of a large pyramidal col
lection of plants and flowers, and hung around
it were beautiful and costly fabrics, many
of them rare gems of art. A few
pieces of priestly regalia were worked
with gold thread and bespangled with
precious stones. One of the curiosities
in the art department was a Finn Bible over
200 years old, owned by John Palm of Goodhue
county. It is said that himself and family
are the only ones in the State that can read and
translate it. It is a leather-bound, large print
book, and the Acts ot the Apostles show up the
glory of the Lord it as well as in any other
Bible. John Palm reads it with intense in
terest, and swears by it vehemently. Long
may it live in song and in Bkry, a token of the
land of icebergs and walruses.
THE LAST ACT.
Saturday evening, as the sun was sinking to
rest with his blood red disk just glinting above
the horizon, the man with the side showwhile
reclining on a dry gootfs box without his tent
doorfeebly lifted up his voice and cried: "Right
this way ladies and gentlemen, two of the most
wonderful freaks of natuie in the world, a cow
with a head on each end, giving milk out of
two udders, and a pig with six legs, all for ten
cents." The crowd kept right on, and imme
diately the showman struck up the following
"I must awaken, or I shall be taken,
For I am forsaken and left all alone,
My cow and my bog, myself and my dog,
Must be away ere the dawning of the day,
Or the devil will be to pay."
With Saturday the closing league ball game
of the season upon the Chicago grounds, was
played. Though the Boston and Providence
clubs have yet four games to play, the relative
standing of the clubs will not be changed from
that they occupied Saturday night, as follows:
1st, Boston with 40 games won and 16 lost.
2d, Cincinnati with 37 games won and 23 lost.
3d, Providence with 30 games won and 26 lost
4th, Chicago with 30 games won and 30 lost.
5th, Indianapolis with 24 games won and 36
lost. 6th, Milwaukee with 15 games won and
The season now so nearly closed has been
fairly successful financially to the clubs en
gaged, though two are supposed to have lost
quite heavily. A most encouraging feature,
however, to lovers of the game, is found iu the
exceptionally honest play by the
men of the several clubs, and
the entire good faith with which
every promise of the league has been carried
out. The result of this is found in a new in
terest in the game, promising well for next
season. It is yet too early to speculate upon
the composition of the league next season, but
it is certainly to be as strong and probably
stronger than this year. Already some ot the
clubs have commenced making up their teams,
the Chicago Time? announcing the following
players engaged for that city next year: Larkm,
pitchei Anson, first and Hankinson third base,
of this year's nine Flint, catcher Quest,
second base Shaffer, right field, and William
son, not assigned, of the Indianapolis nine,
and Peters, of the Milwaukees, short stop.
The 7 imes says the ninth man is also engaged,
but for certain reasons his name is withheld.
The team is a strong one.
For Cincinnati, seven men have been en
gaged: Will White, Sullivan, McVey, Dicker
son, and Kelly, of this year's team, remain.
Willie Foley, of the Milwaukees, has been se
cured for third base, and Burke, of the Tecum
sehs, of Toronto, will play short stop.
It is presumed other clubs have made en
gagements, but have not yet made them public.

TWO WIDOWS DECEIVED.
A Man Who Married One of Them, and
Was About to Wed the Other.
[New York Sun.]
Adolph Hoffman was before Justice Flam
mer, in the Fifty-seventh street police court,
yesterday, accused of abandonment by his
wife Antonia, of 146 East Thirty-ninth
street. As he gave her $6 last week, the
charge was then dropped, only to be suc
ceeded by a complaint of obtaining money
under false pretences.
Mrs. Hoffman, who was formerly the
widow Antonia Gikert,says that she met
Hoffman three months ago. He went to her
a stranger, and said he wished a housekeeper.
She did not de3ire to serve in that capacity,
and as he remained too long in
her rooms, requested him to go.
Next day he returned, and she unguard.
edly confessed that she had $900 in the
Manhattan Savings bank. He said that he
was a very rich man, having $100,000 in
cash, and owning three tenements on Avenue
A. He had, he said, lately journeyed from
Germany, where his wife and child had died,
and he needed some one to look after him.
Then he proposed marriage and showed what
purported to be a deed of a house.
Mrs. Gikert, dazzled by his supposed
wealth, consented, and they were married
that evening. The next day he took up his
quarters with her. The same day he said
that the savings bank was unsafe, and he in
duced her to^withdraw her money and put it
into his hands. Within a few days he began
to make excursions lasting for days at a time.
At one time he wrote her a letter in a dis
guised hand, and signed "A Friend," saying
that he had injured his foot and been de
tained, whereas he had not been injured at
Then Mrs. Hoffman saw an advertisement
in a German newspaper asking for a house
keeper, and signed with her husband's name
This advertisement she answered through
a lady friend, and she concealed herself in an
adjoining room when Hoffman called. He
tried to ascertain how mnch money the lady
had, but gained little satisfaction. Mrs.
Hoffman became very suspicious, and in
duced George P. Keck, a neighbor from
whom Hoffman had borrowed $3, to follow
him last Saturday evening. He was tracked
to 101 Greenwich street. His presence there
is explained in this manner. A lady, in an
swer to his advertisement, requested him to
call on her friend, Mrs. Maria Staler, at 101
Greenwich street. Hoffman went there and
saw that Mrs. Staler had money. He said
he would like her for a housekeeper, but
she declined. Then he proposed marriage.
He said that he was very wealthy, and owned
much property. This was on Wednesday,
the 4th inst. Mrs. Staler would not accept
him, and he called for two or three days
more. Once he tried to borrow $2 and this
made her very suspicious. She finally said
she would marry him if he would show her
evidences of his wealth. His arrest on
Tuesday night prevented his manufacturing
anything of the kind. Mrs. Hoffman, con
vinced that she was duped and swindled,
instituted her suit.
In court Hoffman wore an elegant ring set
with eleven diamonds. "That was bought
with my money," his wife said. "Give it to
He took it off quietly and handed it to
her. Among the articles he purchased were
a gold chain and penholder. Among his
papers are many answers to his advertise
ments, and on the backs of cards are the
names and addresses of many widows. I
was almost settled that he should mairy the
Widow Staler on Tuesday. Both women are
very indignant. He is of stout build, short,
low brow and dark hair, wears a black suit
of clothes, and has a semi-clerical appear
ance. He denies everything. As the re
porter was leaving his cell he said: "Tell
my wife to send around my clothes and slip-
"He don't get anything from this house,"
said his wife when told of this requeBt. He
was held for trial.
Popr Dob on the Financrit.
The following is vouched for by a personal
friend of President Hayes: On one occasion
Col. Kobert Ingersoll, of Illinois, the gifted
disbeliever in the supernatural, made an
evening social call upon the President. There
were several other persons present at tho
time, and quite naturally the conversation at
times took a wide range. The President had
been discussing the honest differences of
opinion among intelligent men on financial
problems, and was deprecating the fact that
leaders in both parties had views inimical to
the resumption of specie payments. Inger
soll, when the President paused, said, "Mr.
President, I presume you have played draw
poker." The President, with slight embar
rassment, answered, "Well, colonel, I am not
at the confessional." "No, no," added Col.
Robert, "but if you know the mysteries of
the seductive game you can readily appreci
ate the illustration I am about to give. Now
I have always found that when a party of
gentlemen are playing a quiet game, that the
man who is ahead is an earnest advocate of
ready and prompt payments whereas the
man that is behind is willing and anxious to
inflate like h-11."
Donnelly Going to Conaress Again.
Mr. Ignatius Donnelly, formerly of this
city, who was recently nominated for Con
gress by the Greenbackers of the Third dis
trict of Minnesota, has been accepted by the
Democrats, and it is believed that his elec
tion is now certain. Mr. Donnelly went to
Minnesota from this city when that State
was very young and became its lieutenant
governor, and then one of its Representatives
in Congress. He was originally a Democrat,
but became a Republican in his adopted
State. Now, however, he appears to be in
favor with the Democrats. When in Con
gress he had occasion to orally castigate the
Hon. E. B. Washburne and expose the gen
eral greed of office in the Washburne family,
and he did his work well. His speech on
this occasion was very caustic, and was able
and scholarly. Mr. Donnelly has been a
somewhat erratic politician, but his friends
in this region will be glad to hear that he is
likely to get into Congress again.

A Thorough Cosmopolitan Sees and Won-
ders at What SawPen Sketches of
the St, Paul and Minneapolis Events,
The Turf, Field and Farm of New York,
in its issue of the 13th, contains a lengthy
letter by one of its editors indited from Min
neapolis, headed: "The Rival FairsThe
Great Meetings in Minnesota." As the
writer was the guest of a citizen of Minne
apolis, and spent most of his time there, the
Minneapolis coloring given his letter can be
excused. We extract as follows:
A BOSEATE DREAM.
All the week Minnesota has been an up
roar. The rivalry between the cities of St.
Paul and Minneapolis may be described as
intense, and it presents its amusing phases
to the stranger of cosmopolitan tastes.
Both are handsome cities, and each possesses
many attractiot as a place of residence. He
who partakes of their hospitality wishes
from the bottom of his heart
that they could dwell in peace,
but as such appears to be out of
the question, he is forced to declare himself
neutral when the question is under discus
sion. One cause of the rivalry is the rapid
growth of Minneapolis. Mr. W. W. Eastman,
whose guest I am, and whose charming resi
dence on Nicollet island faces the river, tells
me that when he came here twenty-two years
ago, St. Paul was even then a city of pre
tensions, while Minneapolis was but a strag
It is the dream of those who take pride in
Minnesota, that here, upon the banks of the
Mississippi, the great inland city of the
American Continent will be an accomplished
fact in the futurethat the vacant lots be
tween St. Paul and Minneapolis will be
covered with buildings, and the rivalry end
by tae two cities being merged into one. It
is a rosy dream, and when it is realized I
shall be content to go hence.
THE BENCH SHOW.
One of the features of attraction at the
St. Paul fair was the bench show, held un
der the auspices of the Minnesota Kennel
club, and superintended by Charles Lincoln.
The show was not large, but some very good
dogs challenged attention. I send you a list
of the entries and awards for the field and
VEGETABLES AND PBUIT.
Both at St. Paul and Minneapolis the
vegetable and fruit display was excellent.
I have traveled a good deal, but nowhere
have I seen such monster specimens of
beats, cabbages, potatoes, Arc, as hero. The
virgin soil of the State is wonderfully fruit
ful. The apples and plums on exhibition
also are large and fine flavored. When I
looked around me I could hardly believe my
THE PRESIDENT'S DAY.
Thursday was oppressively hot tor the
season. I ran down to St Paul in the morn
ing and found the city gayly deeorated with
flags and crowded with humanity. Presi
dent Hayes and party were the magnates.
The procession moved to the fair grounds,
and taxed to the utmost the accommoda
tions of the incloBure. It was a great gather
ing of the masses, and it was a day which
the President should remember with pride.
Among the amusements offered were the
shooting of Carver and Bogardus and the
turf contests. Charley Green drove Edwin
Forrest against time, and was dis
appointed in the performance of the horse.
The bay gelding broke badly, cast a shoe,
and trotted his first mile in 2:19.
HAYES AT MINNEAPOLIS.
The President, like ltarus, has been a
bone of contention between the rival fairs of
the rival cities. As Senator Blaine did not
honor the St. Paul exhibition with his pres
ence, influences were at work to keep Mr.
Hayes away from the Minneapolis exposi
tion. The President, however, was not in
sympathy with the wrangling. Friday after
noon he telegraphed from the North, where
ho had gpne after his day at
St. Paul, that he would be in Minneapolis on
Saturday, and the announcement stilled the
troubled waters. Had tho President acted
upon the advice of pretended friends, and
given Minneapolis the go-by, he would have
committed one of the greatest mistakes of
his life. He would have stood in the posi
tion of one who had hired himself to a show
man. 1 have the inside history at my finger
ends, and therefore know of what I write.
The excitement began on Wednesday, and it
still continues. As the population of the
State is less than New York city, I wonder
from day to day where the thousands come
from. The entire Northwest, it would ap
pear, has been camped in and around St.
Paul and Minneapolis since Sunday. It is a
week which visitors from the East will never
forget. I have talked with so many people,
and have been kept so much on the move,
that I have had no time to write of the meet
ings as I should like to write. My notes
are of the most hurried description.
THE HEART OF THE NORTHWEST.
The rain last night and this morning was
refreshing, but it spoiled the track for trot
ting in the forenoon. The races were not
commenced until half-past two o'clock. The
time, however, was well occupied. President
Hayes and party made the rounds of the ex
position, and naturally were regarded by the
thousands of spectators as a part of the
show. The President and Attorney-General
Devens addressed the multitude from
the judges' stand on the
race course, and wore gener
ously applauded. A Union soldier contribut
ed a bible, his only possession, to be sold
for the benefit of the yellow fever sufferers
of the South, and it was auctioned off at the
close of the Presidents speech, Mr. J. I.
Case, wife of the owner of Gov. Sprague,
purchasing it for $100. The incident shows
that the heart of the Northwest beats kindly
for the South.
The Last Hope Dlsvlnaled.

It is evident that the Republicans must
now give up all hope of securing control of
the next House. There was very little
ground for such a hope at the beginning,
