Lake Elmo was the scene of quite an ex
citement at an early hour yesterday morning,
owing to the attempt of a gang of burglars
to ''go through" the hotel. The first inti
mation that any one had that anything was
wrong was about half past one o'clock, when
Mr. Guthuri, one of the proprietors of the
hotel, was aroused by the opening of his door
and the partial ontranoe of a man. Mr.
Guthurz sprang from his bed, and rushing to
the door the mtrader fled. He immediately
aroused hia partner, Gan. Flower, who occu
pied an adjoining room, and an investi
gation proved that Mr. Guthurz's door
had been unlocked from the outside by the
use of nippers, with which the key, which
had been left in the door, had been turned.
Mr. Guthurz is tuo cashier of the establish
ment, and it is evident that the parties were
aware of that fact, aud accordingly made
their first cill at his room.
The rooms occupied by Messrs. Flower &
Guthurz are in the building formerly used
as a dining hall, which is about fifty feet
distant from the main hotel building. Gen.
Flower immediately went to the hotel build
ing, and, arousing the porter, who was sleep
ing in the office adjoining the
spacious parlor, gained entrance and found
that nwthmg had been disturbed in that
quarter. Cantionmg the porter to be on the
alert, Gen. Flower placed a young man,
William Parmalee, an employe at the hotel,
on guard with instructions to call him if he
saw any one larking about. Only a short
interval elapsed ifter Gen. Flower had re
tired before Parmalee called him with the
information that ho had seen six men wear
ing close-fitting skull capa, about the prem
ises. Mr. Flower with others renewed the
search, and while they could find the tracks
of men who were evidently barefoot,
none were seen, and with a lineer
mg snspioion that the boy's imagination
and nervousness had led him to think he
had seen the prowlers, the search was the
second time abandoned. Young Parmalee
was still left on guard, and was supplied with
a trusty revolver, with instructions to shoot
if he saw anyone.
ACTUALLY AC WOEK.
Something over an hour after the last
alarm passed before anything further was
developed. The boy then discovered three
or four parties at work rumaging the hotel
office, opening the drawers to the desks, etc.
The office is in the spacious parlor on the
first floor of the "Lodge" build
ing, and as the parlor is kept
lighted all night, the thieves could
be seen at work through the windows. The
boy ran down to the boat house, perhaps
two hundred feet distant, to arouse the boat
man, and then returning aroused Gen.
Flower. Wmle hastily dressing Gen. Flow
er told the boy to watch the doors of the
"Lodge," and if they came out to open fire.
The robbers had entered by the large doors
opening apo-i the verandah, which fronts
the lake, and the boy, in his excitement,
went to the rear doors, whore his noise
aroused them and they started to run
from the building by the front
doors. Young Parmalee, seeing
the movements of the burglars, ran as rapid
ly as possible nround the building to the
front, door where they were escaping and
as they ran across the verandah, ha fired
four shots, and the robbers as they ran re
turned his fire three tims, the shots on both
sides being without effect. Tee robbers
plunged headlong over the balustrade and
running betwoon the "Lodge" building and
the new ad lition used as the dining room on
the first 11 ior with lodgings in the upper
stories, jumped the fence and escaped. Be
tween the buildings a lawn tennis was erect
ed, and at least one of the thieves plunged
headlong through the netting, tearing
it down, and probably hurting himself in the
fall, as one was heard to call upon a com
rade to help him as he was hurt. There be
ing no reliable indication that any shot from
Young Parmalee's revolver had taken effect,
the hurt probably arose from the fall. Gen.
Flower, with numerous employes of the
hotel, gave chase to the rascal, but they
were soon lost to sight, and for the time at
Tim WOEK IN THE HOTEL.
The firing of the pistols was the first inti
mation the guests at the hotel had of the
raid The burglars were barefooted, as
shown by thou- tracks in the sand, and they
had worked so noiselessly that no one had
been awakened save Eobert, the colored
porter, whj slept, as already stated, in the
office connected with the parlor. He awaken
ed with a start and a slight scream, bat he
found a man kneeling by his side with a
revolver pointed at his head. The man,
with his face partially turned
to conceal his features, whispered
to the porter to lie Btill or he
the burglar wt aid quiet him, and Robert de
clares that with that revolver at his head he
was never inclined to be so quiet in his life.
He says that he only saw two others in the
pari besides the one who covered him with
the revolver, though youqg Parmalee is con
fident that there were four inside and a fifth
one on watch outside to give the alarm.
When the potter awoke the two thieves
were going through the office of the hotel,
and at that time had not, apparently, entered
any of the rooms of the guests. It was at this
time that the boy outsidediscovered them.and
while he was calling the boatman and Gen.
Flower they entered one room, using nippers
to turn the key, and had partially succeeded
in entering two others when they were
alarmed and fled. All of this work was
seen by the porter whose enforced quietude
has been explained. The room absolutely
entered was hastily ransaoked, bat a lady's
breast-pin of moderate value was all the
reward the thieves obtained for their peril
ous undertaking. It was half past three in
the morning when the shots were fired, and
there was a general awakening of guests
who hastily arose to discover what was the
matter. Two hours had accordingly elapsed
from the time Mr. Guthurz' room was enter
ed, to the. time of the final flight of the
PUTTING IN THEIR TIME.
The morning developed the fact that the
gang of vilhans were not idle
after they were driven away at half-past one
ana their return, probably about three
olocfe. It was found that three burglaries
had been committed near the depot, about a
quarter of a mile distant, and this work was
probably done during the interval mentioned.
John MoDermott'a saloon and residence
was robbed of two or three dollars. Mr.
Lohnian's store and residence was entered,
and a watch, quantity of cigars, and $4.50 in
money taken. The "house of John Dersch.
a blacksmith, was also entered and four or
five dollars in money secured.
Judging from their tracks the thieves had
apparently left their shoes in tho vicinity of
the residences above noted, and when they
were driven from the hotel they letraced
their steps and securing their shoes took to
It is evident that this bold tobbers' raid
was made by experts and desperate Charac
ters. It is thought that the parties who
were engaged in it weio at the hotel as vis
itors Wednesday aud Wednesday
night, and they doubtless re
connoitered at that or some other
time, preparatory to their raid. It is quite
probable that one of the party has spent
some time at the lake, and with the casual
visit of his confederates they were well
posted relative to the premises. It was
doubtless the intention to go through the
rooms in detail, and from the ease with
which they worked as far as they went, they
only needed half an hour more of uninter
rupted work to have entered nearly every
room in the house. The precautions taken
by the proprietors of the hotel, after the first
alarm, effectually prevented any serious re
sults, and the only regret is that none of the
gang were killed.
At a very early hour Gen. Flower had
notified Stillwater, Hudson and St. Paul of
the robbery, and the officerp of all those
cities are on the alert for the scoundrels.
The chief of police of Stillwater visited
Elmo yesterday to endeavor to secure a clue
to the robbers. It is to be hoped that they
will meet with success.
It must be admitted that neither Flower
& Guthurz or the guest3 were very well
equipped yesterday morning to handle a gang
of five or six desperate and well armed men,
but if the crowd would only be kind enough
to call again, they can be sure of abundant
amusement. A visit to El no last evening by
a GLOBE representative developed a regular
arsenal. In fact, the armament is so gener
al that there is a good deal more likelihood
of some of the employes or guests capturing
a few stray bullets than there is of another
raid of robbers.
Another Version of the Sitrague-Conkling
UnpleasantnessThe German Tutor Driv
en from the House of the Er-Governor
NARBAOANSETT PIEB, R. I., Aug. 14.The
morning after the scene at Canonchet last
Friday, and tho subsequent meeting of ex
Senator Sprague and Senator Conkling
the village, Mrs. Sprague went to Providence
for the purpose of consulting her lawyers,
who aie prominent men. This was after
declaring that she would never live with her
husband again. When Mr. Sprague read the
letter published from Mrs. Sprague to-day,
he declared that it was a tissue of falsehood
that so far faom keeping her without funds,
he had but a very short time since given her
several thousand dollars.
Mr. Sprague met his wife here to-day, and
had a stormy interview with her, in which he
charged her with having been unfaithful to
her vows with some one whom he refused
to name. There i3 no mistake about this,
as it was in the presence of witnesses. Tne
governor took charge of his children, and
said that they should never again be in the
custody of such a woman.
All sorts of rumors prevail here, but they
must be taken with allowance. Friends of
Mrs. Sprague assert that the governor was
drunk when he made the terrible accusation
to-day, but there is the most positivo testi
mony that not only was he not drunk, but
that he had not even been drinking to-day.
It is true, also, that their interview was a
most unpleasant one.
Mrs. Sprague did not come here witn the
object of seeing her husband, but only to
make final arrangements for collecting at
Canonchet what belonged to her there and
lemovmg them to Providence. Her friends
assert that she has consulted the very best
legal advice, and that she aid not return to
Gov. Spragve's house by their counsel. Mrs.
Sprague goes away from here to-morrow,
the children remaining with the father.
In the hotels to-night the guests are con
demning Conkling without limit. They say
what the country knew before, the world
It is a matter of common* rumor here that
Governor Sprague did not know of Senator
Conkhng's presence at Canonchet until he
first learned it in the village. The rumor
that is most current, and one that is partially
corroborated, is that Gov. Sprague arrived at
Canonchet late at night and immediately
retired. His presence was only known to
the servants. He breakfasted alone, if he
breakfasted at Canonohet at all, and in the
forenoon appeared iu the village. He was at
Bellmgton's restaurant awhile, and then went
to a sort of club house known as "The
Studio." He spent some time here, and the
report is that here he learned that Senator
Conkling was at Canonohet.
One version is that while playing a game
of billiards at the club a friend said "I
see that the Senator is at Canonohet." and
that Go\ernor Sprague asked at once when
he came. Being told that the Senator had
been there a day or two, the Governor, with
and expression of wrath, at once started for
Canonchet, apparently very indignant.
While in this state of mind the first person
he saw at Canonchet was the German pro
fessor, and, already irritated, he stopped
long enough to have the encounter with Pro
fessor Lmck. This over, he next sought
and found Senator Conkling.
Every one who saw Governor Sprague
last Friday says that he was perfectly sober.
There is no doubt but that Governor
Sprague first learned of Senator Conkling's
presence at Canonchet in the village, for his
time during the forenoon is accounted for,
and all reports agree that he left the village'
for Canonchet a little before two o'clock,
which would give him just time, enough to
reacu his home and meet the professor, and
subsequently the Senator, at the hour men
tioned in previous dispatches.

MEMPHIS, Aug. 16.Twenty-two cases in all
were reported to the board of health to-day,
fourteen colored, among whom were W. H.
Ennis, Anton Franklin, Mrs. S. E. Butler and
Cordelia Atwood. No deaths since noon. All
the prominent ick are reported dmng well to

The Howards sent a nurse this afternoon.
Dr. W. L. Coleman, of San Antonio, Texas,
who was ordered by the State board of health
to investigate the origin of the fever prevailing
in this city, has been quietly at wot for a
mo-ith past. While he is not at liberty to
make the manner in which the germs were in
troduced public, yet his investigations convince
hirojthey were imported direct from the West
Indies, and that they passed the New Orleans
quarantine unchallenged and arrived in this
city some time in Jnne. The Howard Associa

MEMPHIS, Aug. 16.At a conference held this
day at McKenzie, Tenn., there were present:
Dr. J. S. Billings, Dr. R. W. Mitchell, member
of the ational board of health, Dr. D. J. Plun
kett, president, and John Johnston, member of
the Stat board of health, D. T. Porter, presi
dent of the taxing district of Shelby county,
Dr. D. B. Thornton, president of the board of
health, and A. D. Langstaff. president of the
Howard association, of the same place. Dr.
Bulings was called to the chair, and Mr. Lang
staff was appointed secretary. Dr. Billings
stated the object of the meeting to be to confer
with each other in regard to what Memphis
required, and the possibility of obtaining
assistance from the national board of
health. He then read the laws as
passed by the last Congress to govern
the national board of health in their expendi
tures, which are as follows: That the national
board of health shall co-operate with, and so
far as it is lawful may aid the State and muni
cipal board ot health in the execution and en
forcement of its rules and regulations of such
boards to prevent the introduction of con
tagious or infectious diseases into the United
States from foreign countries and into one
State from another. Dr. Billings stated that
the intentions of Congress was undoubtedly to
provide for quarantine resolutions and not for
local sanitation, furnishing food, etc., by the
national board. The national board, have,
however, taken ground from the first outbreak
of yellow fever in Memphis that it is its duty
to prevent the disease spreading to adj jining
States, and could be best performed by
limiting the disease as to Memphis
by all possible means. To this
end, as soon as the approval of the accounting
officers of the National treasury was secured,
funds to the aggregate of $15,000 was placed in
the hands of treasury officers. Bills were ap
proved by the State Board of Tennessee for the
expense of such protective measures by the
local board of health of Memphis as has
been appointed by Baid board within the
city, inspections of trains and boats leaving
Memphis, to protect the surrounding country.
He further stated that greater satisfaction is
felt throughout the conutry at the prompt
manner in which Memphis was emptied of the
greater part of her citizens without
infecting other places. He expressed doubts
as to the possibility of being
allowed to use the funds of the
national board of health to provide rations,
but said the question was now before the proper
legal authorities at Washington for decision,
but under no circumstances wonld the board
issue rations elsewhere than to persons in camp,
since to do so would be clearly tending to spread
instead of to restrict the fever. Funds are
now on hand to meet bills for inspection dis
infection, etc,, and requisitions from the State
board of health for such purpose will hereafter
be promptly met. Several eminent chemists
and sanitarians have been engaged, at the re
quest of the national board of health, in pre
paring detailed instructions for disinfec
tion, and it is hoped that these in
structions can be telegraphed, in an
day or two, to Memphis, tie proposes that a
careful sanitary snrvey of the city, with refer
ence to permanently freeing the city from the
causes of yellow fever, shall be made com
petent engineers and sanitarians, so soon as
the survey can be made without danger, and
when this can be done the national board of
health will declare such a survey is de ired by
authority. Dr. Plunkett stated that the State
board of health of health of Tennessee would
at once cause a regulation, having the force of
law with regard to secu-ing Isolation of sick
and infected localities. Dr. Porter
stated he wonld enforce the regulations
strictly through the local board of health
and other questions were discussed lookiug to
the future harmonious working of the several
boards represented. Among the matters dis
cussed was the resignation of John Johnson,
which was tendered several days ago to the
State board of health, but which was not ac
cepted by said board. Mr. Johnion being as
sured that the public good demanded the with
drawal of his resignation, withdrew it. The
resignation was not caused by any questionable
transaction, as has been staled by the press, or
by personal misunderstanding. The thanks of
the gentlemen present was tendered to the
Louisville & Great Southern railroad for special
trains, to the Chicago, St. Lonis New Orleans
railroad, ard Nashville, Chattanooga & St.
LouiB railroad for courtesies of free transpor
tation furnished them.

FATRICMC NASH'S tUIT.
The Arguments for and. against Making
the City Pay Over Six Thousand Dollars.
A new phase was developed in the suit
brought by Patrick Nash against the city
yesterday forenoon, when the case came be
fore Jndge Simons on a demurrer on the part
of the city on the ground that the complaint
did not allege sufficient grounds for action.
It will be remembered that the action was
originally brought on a claim for $6,695
arising from extra work done on the con
tracts for grading Hoffman avenue, and that
on the case going to the supreme court a
verdict was rendered in favor of the city.
The present suit is based on the grounds
that the extra work was implied or provided
for under the contract,' to which the city de
murred for the reasons above stated. The
case was conducted by Mr. W. P. Clough for
the plaintiff, and City Attorney Murray on
the part of the city. In arguing the demur
rer to the complaint, Mr. Murray relied upon
the decision of the supreme court, calling
attention to the absurdity of the cunningly
framed technicality, and concluding with the
remark that there were no grounds for action,
as the case had been gone over and settled
Mr. Clough, for the plaintiff, commenced
his remarks by saying that the contractor
had been induced to enter into an agreement
with the city on false representations, on the
strength of which the plaintiff had suffered
great pecuniary loss, for which he should be
compensated. Connsel adverted to the plans
and specifications of the improvement, lay
ing particular stress on that part of the
agreement which provides estimates for the
several descriptions of work, and quantities
thereof. Counsel said it was a principal so
elementary that no authority could contra
dict, that where a legislative enactment au
thorized a municipal body to enter into a
contract they incurred the same liability as
In reply Mr. Murray stated that the au
thorities authorizing the improvement were
acting as agents of the public, and as such
their liability was necessarily restricted and
denned. The city could not be compared
to an individual, and because a thing was
customary, it could not be constiued as
legal. The case was submitted and taken
Nelll Ca.sb.man and Gang Cut Up a Po
Trout Brook was crimsoned with gore last
night. It all came about from the council
edict banishing all squatters from that long
setiled localityas far away as father Henne
pin's time. In obedience to the council's
order John Nogle was removing his
shanty at the foot of Fourth
street, next to the railroad track.
The work began yesterday* afternoon, but
owing to the dimensions of the house and
accumulation of household plunder, the re
moval extended far into last night. Several'
friends, all Polanders, as is Nogle, came to
his assistance after night-fall. From sorrow
at the removal, the goodly company of
friends with the help of several
buckets of beer made the affair
a kind of a bee, so to speak. The jolly
hilarity of the Polanders attracted a crowd
of young roughsas they turned out to be,
headed by one Neill Cashman. They came
up to the Pole party, and were admitted in
full fellowship to the fun, on promising to
help move the house and goods. Copious
beers were handed around and sucked in, and
everything seemed serene for a pleasant night
of it. Somehow, but justhow nobody knows,
Cashman became violent and abusive. He
wanted to fight, but everybody else wanted
to move only, and couldn't accommodate
him. At this he became more exasperating,
andfinallypitched into Nogle. Nogle resisted
him, and then Cashman and his} crowd
took hold of the Pole and handled him as
if he were no more than a stick after all.
Out ot this confusion Nogle extricated him
self all covered with blood.
The roughs, seeing the extent of their
handiwork, scampered off. Nogle was found
to be badly out about the face and head. A
long gash randown the length of his face,
and miraculously escaped his eye, another cut
across the forehead, and another across the
head in fact, the Pole was badly whittled
up. He soon fainted from loss of blood,
and was carried into a neighbor's. Dr. Jones
was summoned, and plastered Nagle up.
The wonnds are not dangerous, but are seri
ous, each cut having penetrated to the bone.
From all learned, Cashman is guilty of
the butchery and did it in the wanton spirit
of rowdyism. Cashman and Nogle are
both employees of the St. Paul & Pacific K.
R. company the former being in the
blacksmith shop, and the latter working in
the yard. Nogle is a ^peaceable man, and
Cashman is a roaring terror about the
transfer house, near which he lives.
The police got no word of the difficulty
until it was all over, and when search was
made for a doctor to visit the wounded man.
So soon as the row was heard of, about 1:30
o'clock this morning, Officers Cook and De
Corsey started out to effect Cashman's cap

TTTUSVILLE, Pa., Aug. 16.The fire which oc
curred Thursday morning at Parker's Landing
by lightning, proved to be more destructive
than anticipated. The efforts to extinguish
the burning oil have been, up to this evening,
ineffectual. Two tanks containing 85,000 bar
rels have been burned. The third tank caught
at 11 o'clock this morning, and burst with ter
rific force. The concussion shattered every
pane of glass on Rive avenue, and knocked
twelve people senseless. The burning oil
rushed into the river and the river became a
sheet of flames. The greatest consternation
prevailed, everyone fleeing to the hills for
safety. The wind suddenly changing, the
town was saved. The flames are now confined
to the tank.

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 16.Late this afternoon
detectives arrested Bowe C. Earle and wife trnd
Mary Henderson, who had been caught passing
counterfeit money. They belong to a regular
gang, and come from Chicago.
The arrest is considered a very important
one as the coin dollar and half dollar stiver
pieces are so near perfect as to deceive even
experts. Their spuriousness could only be
discovered by cutting in two one of the pieces.
After their arrest Earle and Mary Henderson
telegraphed parties in Chicago, stating they
were in trouble and asking that assistance be

jury and the witnesse- were at the morgue
viewing the body Bader was brought in, and as
soon as he saw the corpse he threw himself him
self with a loud cry by the side of the coffin
and passionately and repeatly kissed the cold
lips of his mistress. Everybody in the room
was strongly affected, and when the jury was
being sworn Bader sank on his knees by the
coffin and broke into convulsive sobs.

TWO WEEKS A HUSBAND
And Then the Destroyer Came in the Shape
of a Boarder.
To woo and successfally wm the affections
of a damsel, and after the usual order of
events ascertain that the affair was simply a
case of mistaken affinity, is a matter of every
day occurrence, but when a newly married
man awakes to the realization that the in
constant partner of his joys has transferred
her affections to another, before the expira
ration of the honeymoon, there is reason to
believe that philosophic speculation must
make way to admit of the marvelous. The
above reflection was merely intended as an
introductory clause to the narrative of a tri
angular and exceedingly unique domestic
muddle, the fact of which as developed yes
terday, may be briefly stated as follows:
About one month ago the friends of Mr.,
Alexander Pepin were agreeably surprised'
to learn that he had immolated his bachelor
existence at the shrine of the altar matrimo
nial, in short, that he had taken unto himself
a wife. But in casting about him for a
sharer of his joys, the guileless Pepin had
committed the unpardonable mistake of dis
regarding the wholsome advice of the elder
Weller to his son Samivel. The objeot of
his choice was a blushing damsel, to be sure,
but withal a widow, in proof of which docu
mentary evidence was forthcoming, in addi
tion to which she brought with her the wid
ow's mite, an infant about eighteen months

A fatal and painfully cruel accident took
place about 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
resulting in the death of the five-year old
son of Jaoob Deitz, residing on Fuller street
near Western Avenue.
The accident took place on Martin street a
few yards west of Western Avenue, and was one another
caused by a land slide, or, more properly
speaking, the caving in an embankment. Roman Catholic

John Freiling, aged 5 years, and Henry
Freiling, about 2 and one-half years of age.
On the opposite side of the street a short
distance from the embankment a Mrs. Fitz
gibbons, was performing household duties,
which were var ed by observing the actions
of the children, who were plainly visible
from the window of her residence.
While thus engaged the industrious house
wife was startled by a suppressed shriek of
mingled fright and pain, which had sudden
ly taken the place of innocent, childish
prattle. Mrs. Fitzgibbons looked from the
window just in time to see the embankment
close in on the children. Rushing to the
scene of the disaster, followed by a young
lady named Mary Hoffman, the women
went bravely to work at extricating the
children, while a young man named Hoff

The women succeeded in getting three of

ing rescued. A casual examination demon
strated that three of the children had escaped
almost entirely uninjured, while in addition
to being suffocated young Deietz's right leg
and ankle were bandly mangled.
The lad was conveyed to the residence of
his parents, where Dr. Stamm was sum
moned, who declared that death had resulted
from suffocation. Coroner Stein was sum
moned and by 6 o'clock he had empaelled
the following jury: Sanford Newell, A. L.
Mitchell, T. S. MoManus, W. T. Kioh,
Gustav Leue and Charley Siegenthaler.
The jury visited the house last evening, and
after viewing the remains, it was decided to
postpone the inquest until 9 o'clock this
morning. Considerable feeling was manifest
about the affair last night, but the blame, if
any, will no doubt be assigned to the proper
persons by the coroner's jury to-day.
