TheChild Was Stolen to be Trained^in a Theatrical Company Which^Was Organizing.
Motive*Which L^d the Woman to MMi^the CoafeMiou-A Thrilling and In^terettiDg stor^.
Oneof the most sensational cases of an
abductionof a child since the day*of Char^^ley Ross was that of little Annie Redmond^about a year ago, and which finally re^^sulted in driving the father insane. The^fact in the case were m*de public Wednes^^day for the first time Mrs. Joaie Gurley,^who was con vict- d of abducting the little^one and sentenced to Joliet prison for five^years for the crime, has made a confesison,^which she elalsaa is the only true stor).^afrs.-Ourley had Just beew informed of^Harvey Gurle^'s Incarceration f jt bigamy,^and her anger against Gurley, to save^whom from the prison she had perjun d^herself, she said, led to the confession, tier^story lu brief ia as follows: Prior to tue^abduction a friend of Harvey Gurlej^named Dick Rysn. Gurley. Mrs. Parsons^an^1 Annie Alien were in connection with^a man named McGee of Toledo, Ohio, get^^ting up a theatrical company. McGee wrote^them that to complete the company they^must procure a bright little girl who coulu^l^-arn to sing and dance Acting upon this^Ryan planned the abduction of theRedmoi.d^child. Annie Allen was not an actress,^but waa stage-struck, and the conspirator*^agreed to secure ber a place in the troupe^for her aid in stealing the child. Gurley^was piomued 8100 by Ryan for his servio-s^in coii^ruittintf the crime On the day sj^the adduction the child came to play about^10 o clock and was soon enticed away by^Annie Allen, who was met further d iwn^the street by Gurley and Mrs Parsons^Here a carriage waa in waiting and all^four entered and were driven to the home^of Mrs. Parsons. In the meantime the^child had been rendered almost uncon^scious from the effects of eating drugged^candy. Two day* later the child was^brought to Mrs Gurley's home on State^street
ContinuingMrs. Gurley said: 'T did^not barn that the child was a atolen one^unt I one day in Xovruber. I was out for a^walk and called at Mr. Parsons', having^the chiid with me. While there a man^came along who saw the child and Sf^^claimed: 'That is Anna Redmond.' Mr^Parsons pushed therhild into the house^and shut the door and th^ n. turning to the^mar, - .1 with a laugh, 'You are sBMBafea n,^that is my ^on's little daughter.' The mo^n et I he b^d passed on Mrs. ['arsons d ^^ln^o a tertible rage and bundled me off^hon e with the chi:d 1 was so tlu-tered^and scared at what I had heard and Mir^thoi.ght that 1 had been keeping^the lost child that all the pa^^per* were talking about 'hat 1^hsidly knew what u^ do. When Gur'ej^heard that I bad taken the child out to^airs Parsons' and that the man had recog^uiZ'd it a* the Redmond chi!d he gave me^a terrible bea'ing and used me so^cru-llv that I could rot g^ t out i f bed^tor three days Hick R^an came to^the bouse aiid then both threatened me if 1^said a wo^d abcut the child. They said^they won'd kill nie. Ryan first tried to^t-ach the child to read and then to make^her sing and dance, but she would not^learn easi'y They whipped her and they^roay'.e m** whip her because she would not^It-am. It was Ryan's original intention to^have the company ready to start on Jan^^uary 1. and it was the Intention to take the^child along and teach her the part she waa^to perform. Some kind of play where a^chile: :s stolen from it* home. Something^ihi.rttred with Ryan's pians and ih*^daie^was changed to May 1. One day Gurley^can e home and said be waa going to put^the child in an orphan asylum and leave^h^-r there until they were ready for the^road Well, the child was discovered in^February and the theatrical scheme of^Ryan and Gurley fell through Mrs Gur^ley says that Gurlev often beat her, and^that she was afraid be would kill her, and^that she waa led to tell the stories she to.d^prior to and at the time of the trial by the^conspirators, who would send ber threat^ening notes in the food taken to her at the^jail.''

St.Louis Mo., Sept. 27^During the^Missouri Pacific strike of 18h6 a train was^wrecked at Wyandotte, Kansas. Several^strikers were arrested on the charge of^causing it, but subsequently were dis^^charged Two of them began suit for ma^licious prosecution. The testimony in^these cases was taken here A deposition^was made to the effect that the Knights of^Labor at the time took charge ot the cases^of the train wreckers and spent $90,000 in^their defense; also, out of spite at the fail^^ure of the strike, the Missouri Pacific car^work* at St. Charles, M^ . *nd the Vanda^lia freight depot in East Bt, Louis were de^strojt-d by fire and a p'an devisen) to^blow up the bridge here t^j ;1 ating a dyna^^mite lad. i) barge against ii , but this was^no; carried out The names ot the actors in^these events were given, and it wasstat^d^that men much higher i i the ranks of the^knights knew much about these things.^In view of these statements it Is ssid Mas^SS^ Workman Powderly and Secretary^Hayes, when they arrive here next week,^will be put through the affidavit mill and^other members of the executive board be^cmpeiled to tell what li-*y know.

x'w York, Sept. 27.^The supreme^council of Cerneau.Scottish rite of Masons,^has issued a proclamation in regarJ to its^trouble with the order, in which it says It^was merely with a de sire to enter into^frien ly relations that such a proposition^was made in April, 1888, to the grand col^^lege of rites, which the council then and^now understands to be a purely Scottish^rite. The body was attached to the Grand^Orient of Fiance. These relations never^have been consummated, the statement of^enemies to the contrary notwithstanding.^The council announces its loyalty to ail^Masonic bodie*, and in proof thereof^announces that the proposal in qu'S^Hon Is withdrawn and every^^thing set aside, whereby it may^be claimed that fraternal relatk rs have^been effected between the Grand Orient of^France or any of its bodies and the Cer-^neau organ zation.

SilverCity Seandlaavleas Hear Owe ^^Their Own Orator*.
BfTTE,Sept 27 ^[Special to the inde^^pendent].^The Scandinavian orator, Lars^M. Rand, of Minneapolis, spoke here to^^night to an audience composed mainly of^Scandinavian democrats of Butte and^vicinity. Mr. Rand pr .ved himself to be^an unusually entertaining speaker, at^times convulsing his audience with his^witty stories and illusions. Mr Rand was^Introduced by the chairman, Chas. X.^Uoscjan. in the course of his speech Mr.^Rand said be would not draw any lnvid^lous comparisons between the two caodi^dates for governor, but he would repeat for^their consideration a speech be had heard^Mr. Power deliver the day before. Mr^Power said:
Gentlemenand fellow cltifns: I am^not much of a speaker. I'm mighty glad^to s-e you here. I'll tell you something:^We've got'em. 1 thank you very much^for your kindnesa
Mr.Rand's inimitable imitation of Power^was quite a treat and enj.iyed hugely by^his audience. He exhorted bis countrymen^to vote without fear or favor or coercion^from any boss or bosses, and said he bad^'be most supreme contempt for the man^who would so love' himself as to be co^^erced into voting for a candidate except by^his own will and Judgment. The Scandi^ntvians present were evidently much im^^pressed with Mr Rand's presentation of^the facts and at the close the chairman^proposed three chrers for the speaker,^which were given with a will.
Hon.(reo. W. Cassldy.of Xevada, spoke^to the miners of Centerville to-night, aud^the largest building in the camp was^crowded to hear him.

Mr. Cassidy confined himself to^the tar ff and silver questions, which he^made very plain.

Missoula.Sept. 27^[To the Editor ot^the Journal. J ^Your editorial this morn^lng is based on strangely perverted facts,^purporting to be remarks of mine in my^speech in Livingston. At la some other^places, 1 refe rred to the character of our^future senators, and neither to Mr. Carter^or myself. My remark at tbe opera bouse^was in tbe plural, general and not per^^onal, as every one there knows. Xow,^therefore, tbe reference to Mr Botkln is a^vicious mi-representation. My language as^beard by hundreds of people was that in^his contest Mr. B. ^had exercised more^than the privileges of an invalid, and^assumed less than the responsibilities of a^man.^ 1 cannot help the mistakes or mis^understandings of your stenographers. 1^ouly deny that 1 ever uttered the state^^ments as reported. 1 think the Journal^owes me the justice to at least print tuia in^its morning edition, and to revise its com^^ments accordingly, aa i should not like to^be obliged to revise tbe kindly opinion^thai 1 bad farmed ot Its editors.

Tbecommiasiou. continues the report,^has followed in tbe footsteps of tbe first^Utah commission, which recrgnlxed tbe^fact that congress in creating it desired it^to nse its best endeavors to wipe out and^extinguish polygamy, and as fares possible^ail polygamous influences and tendencies,^With this purpose in view the commission^in appointing registrars of elec'i .n se^^lected, when possible, those belonging to^tbe non-Mormon element, and always ap^^pointing a majority of the judges ot elec^tion, two out ot three, of the Gentile class^In some places, however, there were no^Gentiles to fill tbe position* This course,^tbe retort states, bad the effect of decreas^^ing the Mormon vote,
touchingthe question of polygamy, tbe^report aaye: ^Poly gamy is not at tbe pres^^ent time openly practiced except, perhaps,^n a few remote and out of the way places;^but tbe nun-Mormon element insists that^plural marriages are solemnized^clandestinely and practiced se^^cretly In the larger centers and^throughout the territory. This may^or may not be tiue. The commission^neither affirms nor denies it in the absence^^f positive evidence. Doubtless many^members of tbe Mormon church never^nave practiced and never intend to prac^^tice polygamy, and perhaps many of them,^per se, do not believe in tbe practice; but^from tbe standpoint of their faith and creed^they accept It as a revelation from God,^through tbe prophet, seer and revelator,^Joseph Smith, ratified and approved by the^great preaMent, Bngham Y'oung; and that^w ij. ever desires to do so should have tbe^right to comply witb this ordinance of the^church.^ All laws forbidding tbe^practice* f polygamy, the report continues,^the Mormons pronounce unconstitutional.^There are grounds for the belief, it I*^stated, tjat polygamy Is still taught by tbe^church as a saving ordinance, and that^those who practice it are assured ot higher^exaltation in heaven than those wbo con^tent themselves with one wife. Extracts^are given from Mormon papers showing^they still openly advocate polygamy. That^the teachings and practice of polygsmy^have not been discontinued, as claimed by^some, is proven, the report says, by tbe^fact ibat since September 1, 1kkm. there hae^been In the territory of Utah 357 convic^tiou* tor bigam), adultery, fornication and^unlawful cohabitation.
Ifplural marriages are now celebrated,^say s tbe report, it is done in tbe secret^chambers of tbe temple. If polygamy is^practiced, it is with the secrecy with which^the burg.'ar guards bis housebreaking and^tbe th:ef his larcenies Those wbo are^convicted of polygamy regard themselves^and are regarded by their friends, as^martyrs, and think it no disgrace to be^sent to the penitentiary. Tbe courts are^commended tor their vigilance and also for^tbe mercy with which their mandates sre^tempered. Tiie commission, in view of the^present condition of the territory as regards^polygamy, dees not think Utah should be^admitted as a state Should it be, tbe^commission says, it would not be^loug before the Gentile element,^witb its advanced civilization,^its trade and traffic, would be driven from^the territory and the Mormon theocracy^made supreme. The commission makes a^number of recommeudations, among them^that the jurisdiction of all polygamous and^sexual offenses, withe.'Ut regard to the place^-ommitted within tbe territory, be con^^ferred on district courts; that the term of^imprisonment for unlawfjl cohabitation^oe extended to at least two years for t!i-^first and three years for the second; that it^be made a penal offense for any woman to^enter into marriage with any man knowing^that he has a wife living undivorced,^coupled, however, with the provision that^in cases where the po ygamous wife is^called as a witness sgauu^t her husoand,^her testimony could not be used in any^future preisecution against ber, and a like^provision as to the t.uaband; that a person^wbo refuses to take an oath^that be or she is not cohabit^ing with more than one husband or^wife in marriage relation as esse may be,^shall be exclu ed from making a location^and settlement upon public lands; tbat the^laws with reference to the immigration of^Chinese and tbe importation ot contract la^^bor, paupers and criminals be so amended^as to prevent the immigratitm of persons^claiming their rel.gion justifies tbe crime^of polygamy, and that tbe constitution^should be so amended as to further pro^hibit polygamy; that a law be enacted^creating a board to consist of the governor,^the Utah commission and the secretary i f^tbe territory to apportion Salt Lake City^into aldermanic and ceiuncilmanic districts.^It a!s ' recommends that tbe commission,^in its discretion, cause to be made annually^a new registration, instead of revisions^of former lists; that congress pass^laws fur the government and conduct of^public schools in the territory of Utsb:^that as soon as the re-ull of tbe eleventh^ensus is known tbe territory be redis^tricted for legislative purpose's. The com^^mission believes limitation on prosecutions^for polygamy and bigamy should be ex^tended, and sentences to bard labor should^be added, that their confinement may not^be -pent in idleness and the glorification of^their supposed martyrdom. The commis^^ ion bas no doubt tbat tbe punishment of a^wi man for voluntarily entering into a^poly gauiou* relation would do much to lea-^Sen ber zeal for thi* peculiar institution,^and thus tend to remove one of the stroi.g^est bulwarks.
Inregard to tbe probi' ition of immigra^^tion, the report says: ^Wh.le we forbid^tbe immigration of the n ^n proselyting,^teace loving, docile Chinaman be^^cause we fear future danger^from his c m ng, and while we^f .rbid the landing on our shores of contract^laborers because they cheapen tbe wages^of American born citz-na, and paupers^because they become a burden, there is^far greater reason for ciostng oar doors as^a nation and forbidding ci' z-nsblp to tbe^hordes who are brought here to swell the^ranks of an organized body, which teaches^them in advance to bate our government,^denominatee Its executive Jaw tnakera.Jud-^ge* and prosecutors as persecutors, and in^^stills into every mind tf.s constant teaching
thattheir pretended revelations are more^binding than the bigbeet and beat laws of^tbe land, and that resistance to such laws^la a virtue and a rendering of obedience to^God. How far short of treason tbeee teach^ingi are we leave to those who can an^^swer
Inconcluding th^ rep^rt tbe commission^says: ^Congresa should take no hack ward^or even wavering *tep|in the enforcement of^the laws against polygamy.

PalatineBbidob, X. Y , SepL 27.^^Tbe Su Louis express No. S, which left^Albany at 10 o'clock last night, met with a^bed accident about two miles east of here^about midnight Tbe first section broke^down and stopped for repairs. Tbe rear^brakeman was sent back to signal the^second section, directly in front of him.^The first section was made up of a baggage,^mall, express and three passenger ears,^packed with people, and a Wagner sleeper^on the end The crash was terrific. Tbe^second section telescoped the first section,^knocking out the light* and plunging every^^thing into darkness. Up to this boor (3^am.) four bodies have been taxen out of^the sleeper, and it is feared the total num.^ber of deaths will run np to twenty-five^and possibly more, as the car waa full.^It Is difficult to get particulars at th's hour.
Acorrespondent of tbe Times, wbo was^on the wrecked express train, says wben^tbe crash came he was asleep in the coach^next ahead cf tbe sleeper in the first sec^^tion The car was crowded with pasaen^gers. The wr.ck could not have occurred^in a more unfavorable place, and every^^thing except the coaches were in pitch^darkness. Kor a while tbe people were^toode zed to do anything. The engineer . f^tee second section. Willism llorth,^when seen was suffering great pain^and could ta.k but little. The^train men were mute, as usual, under such^circumstances. Tbe engine of the^second section waa wrecked beyond re^^demption Tbe r.-ot of the express car^immediately behind bad sprung through^the cab and thrown the engineer to the^ground. The fireman made his escape by^jumping. Bevond this the *econd was not^damaged, the heavy vestibule sleepers^protecting it frtim telescoping.
Theheavy sleeper* on the first section^sustained the shock of tbe collision^and saved the three passenger coaches^in front, filled wnh men, women^ard children from destruction. There^was not a physician on board and it wa-^very difficult to get restoratives for tbe in^^jured. It was not until a large boncre was^built on the north side of the track thatoa^realizing sense of the disaster was b^tained. Already six wounded pas^^sengers, Including one lady, had^been taken from the Wagner sleeping^car. Axes and saw* were procured and^willing hand* set to work tocutaaay the^sides of the telescoped cars. How man\^brdies, if any, are left in them at this writ^ing it is impo^s|t.ie to say. When tbe cor^respondent left the scene they had not made^much progress.
Itis impossible to get details as to tbe^killed or injured to-night.

If any. will be very small,^the democratic gain over the^county will follow the^work which tbe party has done^during tbe last few weeks. It is true the^party lost the county by a small majority^In the election of 1888, but this can be ac^^counted for by tbe inactivity and want of^inteiest on the part of a grttst many demo^^crats; but during this campaign tbe entire^party worked as a unit, and they are all^up and using every effort for the success^of every candidate on tbe ticket, realizing^the importance and necessity of this por^^tion ot Montana keeping np with^the other counties and going into^the union as tbe ^state of Mon^^tana,^ decidedly and unquestionably^democratic.

Tbe^total number of votes registered Is in the^neighborhood of 2.600, and it is safe to say^that tbe democratic state ticket will be car^^ried by at least 300 msjority in spite of tbe^efforts of our republican friends aidid by^the speeches of ^carp, t-bagger^ Sheridan,^Carter, Mantle and the addresses of some^loss noted republican orators wbo have vis-^ted Jefferson county during the campaign,^in the Interests of their party.
