The Official Transcript of Kev. Chas. T.
Coer'a EvidenceStrait Paid the Clergy
man $2 and Collected $15.80 From the
State Which He Put in His Pocket.
The following is the verbatim report of
Rev. Charles T. Goer's testimony before the
State Senate investigating committee, as
taken by the official stenographer
The Jtav. Chas. T. Coer came before the
committee at itF invitation.
Senator DoranMr. Coer, I understand
that you have taken some exceptions to the
action of the committeethat you thought
they woro doing you injustice. I want to ex
plain to you that the committee had nothing
to do with this, howeverwith the publica
tion in the newspapers. These bills that
you saw here came before the reporters and
they made the reports, so you must not
blame us for that.
Mr. CoerDo I understand from this bill
that Horace B. Str.ut received f15.8 for
our visit to St. Paul?
Sen. DoranYes, that is what the commit
Mr. CoerWho received the $15.80?
Sen. DoranTiuit is not stated. I pre
sume that Mr. Stiaifc received it.
Mr. CoerWell, I did not receive it.
Senator Doran That is what we pre
sumed. Did you receive any part of this
Mr. CoerI had a half-fare ticket, as all
clergj men and pastors have in the State, on
all raihoads. I had a half-fare ticket on the
Sio ux City lailrcmd. I received my half
tare ticket going down from Slmkopee to St.
Senator DoranYou don't remember the
Mr. CoerOh, I suppose about $2.
Senator DoranThat is all yon received?
Mr. CoerOt the &15.80 I received about
$2, that is, to the best of my
recollection and belief. You can easily
find out how much it is. I re
ceived a hHlf-far ticket from Shakopee
to St. Peterjust about $2. I did the woik
theiel would not do for $10, but I did not
go for pay.
Senator DoranThe committee under
stood lrom somo parties that there was a
wrong impiession with regard to yourself,
and finding yoa were in the city we wanted
to have it coriected. "When you went to
visit this institution did you stay at the hos
Mr. CoerYes, sir.
Senator DoranMr. Strait also stayed
Mr. Coer I believe he did. I know he
Senator DoianYou stayed there during
the time you were there?
Mr. CoerYes, sir and I was very nicely
Senator DoranIf Mr. Strait had only
charged $2, we would have been ahead that
much for the State.
Mr. CoerYou would have been ahead
Senator Doran Well how was this?
Mr. CoerI be Major came to me and
said that he was a tiustee of the asylum,
and asked me if I would like to go down
and visit it to investigate it. I told him I
did not caie about the investigation, but
that I would like to visit it very much. He
asked me to go with him and stated that he
had authority to take a visitor with him. He
said that the State would pay all my ex
penses. I said ''all right," I did not mind
much about the expenses, but that I was
very glad to go down there. Any
way, I went down there, and I vis
ited the asylum trom top to bottom. I
made out my report. Coming up on the
car* Major Strait says: "Have you got a
half laie ticket?" I said yes. He says:
'How much is your expense?" It was five
cents a mile from Shakopee to St. Peter.
You can find that out by seeing how far it
is riom Shakopeo to bt. Peter. It was a
dollar and seventy or eighty odd cents, and
I think he handed me two one dollar bills.
I said- "Majoi, yon need not hother about
this."" He said: "The State pays it, and it is
all right.*' That 19 the whole thing abjut it
until Hound that I was accused of receiving
this amount of money.
Senator DoranWell, this is the way it
was done (handing Mr. Coer a paper.) You
see this is another item for $18.40.
Mr. Coer- Perhaps he stayed there longer
than I did. That Is all that I
ever received for going down
Lo the asylum, with one exception. I was
under exchange with the Reverend Mr.
Liveimore and Dr. Bartlett, Who, as is the
case with Mr. Livermore, is a friend of mine,
"arae to me on a Satuiday night, and ar
ranged lor me to preach for the lunatics. I
would lather take a good threshing than
preach to lunatics. Alter it was all over,
about three or four days after that, the doctor
wrote to me and enclosed me a $ 3 bill, and
Mr. Livermore said that the doctor would do
that, but it seemed to me as being a sort of
ft complimentary thing for a clergyman to
Senator DoranAs far ad the committee
is concerned, we simply want to do yoa this
act of justice, and we heard from your rieuds
as though they felt that we were doing you
Mr. CoerI would not want what I said
to militate against Major Strait.
Senator MortonHow long were you there
Mr. CoerI think we went down on the
evening train, and came back the next day.
Senator DoranThen you were there only
Mr. CoerOnly over night. We both
stayed there at the asylum. I know it did
not cost me to break me.

CINCINNATI, Sept. 22.The simplest and
compietest wife murder and suicide of the
season occurred at 10 o'clock last night in Cin
cinnati at the private residence over the Rhine.
Just across the street, north of Musical hall,
Chris Prehn had met his wife in the house of
his father, Fritz Prehn, who had appointed a
meeting for the purpose of inducing them to
make up a difficulty which had separated tbem
since last Wednesday. Chris Prehn, the lead
ing actor in the double tragedy, was 23 years
old, and his wife was six months younger.
They had been married nearly four years, had
had three children, none ot them living. Last
Wednesday the wife made bean soup for din
ner, and the husband left home and dined down
town. At supper he found bean soup again,
and threw the ate, soup and all against the
stove. He did not like that kind of soup.
Both left the house and did not meet until ten
minutes before the tragedy. Chris often spoke
HIS DOMESTIC DISCORD,
never charging his wife with infidelity, but
complaining of their infelicity. He abhorred
soup, and that second dose of bean soup was
the hair that broke the camel's back. When
he came into his father's parlor and met his
vi fe in the presence of his father and mother
and sister to hear the parental overtures for re
conciliation he exhibited no conduct that at
tracted the attention of his parents. For a
while he sat upon the chair and quietly list
ened to the talk, saying nothing. At last he
arose and walked the floor with his hands in
his pockets. Finally turning around within
three feet of Carrie, his wife, he halted and
drew hiB band from his pocket. "Bang, bang,"
went two shots from a pistol and down fell

GKIDLEY, 111., Sept. 22.A most horrible ac
cident occurred here this morning, resulting in
the fatal injury of Farris Jewett, a well-known
resident of Giidley. He went to the farm of
P. Breese to get a well augur which was in a
partially finished well. The augur was in the
earth in the bottom ot the well, and the rod by
which the auger was turned projected from the
earth. While descending, the rope broke, and
Jewett fell thirty feet, striking on the augur
rod, which penetrated his body at the lower ex
tremity of the right side, and emerging under
the ribs on the left side, passing through the
intestines, and the physicians say ruDturing
them. The man at the top of the well threw
him a rope* which he caught, and by which he
was pulled out, bringing the rod with him,
sticking in his body until neai the top when it
worked out. The rod was three-fourths of an

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 22.An extensive bond rob
bery was committed by unknown persons at
Kansas City Tuesday afternoon which, for rea
sons best known to the police, was kept quiet
till late last night. It appears a well-dressed
man drove to the office of the Jackson county
horse railroad about 4 o'clock Friday evening
and called John Burke, cashier of the company,
out to the sidewalk and had five minutes con
versation with him regarding the bad conduct
ot a Conductor on the company's car. Shortly
after Burke returned to the office he discovered
his safe had been robbed of $1,000 in money
and $21,000 of county bonds and matured
coupons also a life insurance policy belong
ing to Theodore Carrigan for $5,000, and which
contained bonds, etc. The package was found
near the express company's stables, still hav
ing in it the insurance policy and the papers,
but the bondB and coupons were gone. The
bonds were $10,000 of Lafayette county, matur
ing January 1st, 1879, with coupons attached
since 1877 a St. Clair county bond of $1,000,
and $150 coupons on the bonds of Cass, Henry,
and St. Clair counties. These belonged to
Bernard Carrigan, and are valueless to the

at 11 o'clock, a crowd of men from 75 to 100,
rode into town, forcing the jailer to deliver the
keys of the jail, took therefrom Daniel M.c-
Brid, the negro who murdered a white man
near Athens the night of the 7th, and hung him
to a tiee on the spot where the murder was
committed by the negro's confession. No fears
of lynching had been entertained by the

the British mission to Cabul to go through the
Khyber pass, and crowned the heights which
commanded the pass with his followers. After
three hours' interview with the officer, in which
he warned him that his act would be regarded
as the act of the Ameir himself, Major Cavag
nari, commanding the advanced escort of the
mission, returned to Jamrood and the mission
has withdrawn to Peshwaur.
SERIOUS POLITICAL QUESTION.
LONDON, Sept. 22.A special from Calcutta
says the main body of mission to .bul had
proceeded as far as Jamrood. Its return there
was telegraphically ordered by the Viceroy.
The mission will now be withdrawn. It is
fully recognized that Ameir of Afghanestan is
mereley the pr *e*,am*l\f.*f&
will consequently cease to be treated from an
Indian stand-point and becomes a very serious
problem of English foreign politics. The im
mediate object of the Viceroy is to make it
understood that he has no quarrel with the
Afghanistan people, and to win over all the
border tribes. Maj. Oavagnari respectfully
warned Afghanistan officers that the Ameir
would be held responsible. The officer, in the
presence of two Indian princes attached to the
mission, expressed his unflinching determina
tion to forcibly resist the passage of the mis
sion. There is not the shadow of a doubt he
is acting under full instructions from the
Ameir, as two of the Ameir'a responsible of
ficers, -who are also believed to be in direct
commueication with the Russian embassy, re
cently arrived at Alimusjid. The Russian en
voy is still residing at Cabul.

A Paris dispatch sayB M. Gambetta's speech
as Bomau's published in the Jtepubliqv& Fran
caise, is considerably toned down. It was said
this was done in consequence of President Mac
Mahou having threatened to resign.
LONDON, Sept. 21A correspondent at Paris
telegraphs that notwithstanding the approba
tion Gambetta's speech at Bouen, Wednesday,
met with on the part of the Bepublican press,
it makes moderate Republicans uneasy. It is
thought the programme will endanger the suc
cess of the senatorial elections, for it opens up
a field of discussion in which the adversaries
of the republic will find it easy to exaggerate
the orator's words, and show that the republic
proposes to lay hands on every existing insti
tution in a revolutionary sense. I heard the
speech objected to by men who are neither
clericals nor monarchists nor Booaprrtists, who
regret Cra.mbetta.'s formulated, programme, the
smallest fault of which are the mopportunities.
ROME, Sept. 21.The Vatican has decided to
instruct the French bishops to spare no effort
to counteract the effects of Gambetta's speech.
THE POPE AND ITALY.
Cardinal Nina, papal secretary of state, has
sent a circular to the Nuncios asking them to
ascertain how the respective governments
would view the extreme measures which the
Vatican may possibly be obliged to take to pre
serve the authority of the Pope against the
hostile attitude of Italy, which is chiefly one
observable in the exercise of royal prerogative
relative to the nomination of bishops.
TURKEY AND GREECE.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 21.It is aunounced
that Turkish troops have surrounded Ahmed
Pasha, leader of the Adann insurrection.
Rumors are current that bands of Greeks have

The article is regarded as a reply to the revived

On Saturday, a woman living up Rush river

and a cart, which attracted the attention of
several little children who surrounded the
rig, among whom was little Johnny Taylor,
aged about 4 years, son of Tip Taylor. In

the dog, and the miserable cur grabbed him

a frightful wound, the result of which the

SHERMAN'S GREENBACK INTERVIEW.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 22.Nothing has made
more comment during the week than Secretary
Sherman's change of front upon the finance
question published last Sunday. The criticism
on this interview has been so wide as to call
forth a letter from John Sherman, directed to
the agent of the associated press. Mr. Walker,
greenback editor, who had the original talk
with Sherman, proposes some interesting par
ticulars of this interview. He says to-day, so
much of the Secretary's letter as relates to the
interview, was submitted to the editor of the
Republic prior to its delivery to the associated
press, and of course is accurate.
THE MANUSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW
was read to Secretary Sherman, but was not
placed in His hands. There were three points
with which he expressed dissatisfaction. The
sentence: "That there is to-day but a very
Blight difference between." etc., originally
read, "That there is to-day scarcely a hair's
breadth between," etc. The secretary, when
this clause was read, suggested the change as
made. The second point waa iu regard to na
tional bank notes. Mr. Sherman disclaimed
opposition to national bank notes, but said he
had repeatedly declared in his speeches that
when it came to a question between national
bank notes nnd legal tenders he was for legal
tenders all the time. A note of this was made
in lead pencil at the time at the bottom of thn
page and afterward written out as shown in
the published report. The third point was in
regard to the interconvertible bonds. That was
in the original manuscript. The secretary did
not approve of this, and it was then and there
S marked out by the editor. Nor does
any one word appear anywhere in the pub
lished interview regarding interconvertible
bonds. In writing out the report of the inter
view the language was necessarily such as sug
gested itself to the editor. If Mr. Sherman
had written it himself it would doubtless have
read differently. Nevertheless, the report was
strictly correct. _*
The Republicans have learned that Speaker
Randall has had influence enough with Dr.

So far as the principles of party go, it is

has proven himself to be incompetent, arbi

Mr. Poehler and Mr. Poehler's friends are

it is no exageration to say the contrary is the
case with tbe Republicans. Major Strait

terms should have satisfied his ambition, and
as other men have their ambitions they
growl of beating him with the opposition.

are certainly flattering.
