BusTiiM, May 111. A peculiar euntrovetsy lias
arisen over tho disposition of the body of John
C. Adams, who committed suicide at the Before
House by hooting. Adams married a
Hebrew lady thiee years aco, but tho ceremony
was prnvlnusly pel funned aocoiding to tho
Clirirtiui leliKion b a Justice of the Peace. 'Iho
wedding invitations were sont out liy the bride's
mother and iuiptiud that thu marriage would be
after tho custom of the Hebrew Church. To tills
Adams objected and he did not appear on the
day of tho wedding. The oouplo never lived
happily together, tlinchief tumble arising from
tho peculiar circumstances attending the wed
ding and tho opposition or Adams's pare ts to tho
match. Later lluaiicuil embarrassment dis
turbed lilm ki cully and led to his disappearance
a week ngo and his suicide last night, ihu sui
cide's body is now lying in an uudei taker's shop.
Both the widow and tho dead man's laniily claim
his body aud each denies the otliorn right to Its
possession. Both have also made arrangements
for the funeral. The limit rtaker Is in a iiuan

CLEVER BUNCO SCHEME
How Ono of tho Fraternity Tried to
Trap a Capitalist.
At First He Wanted to Invest a Big Sam
And Finally lie Planned n Neat Little
Faro Game that Didn't Succeed.
The latest bunco tale comes from a gentleman
who is engaged extensively in the iron matin
factuio in this city, and who shall 1m known to
tho readers of Tiik Evrmimii Woni.n as Mr.
Ktuckerboeki r, for ho has Ihjcii a New Yorker for
a generation at least.
Mr. Knickerbocker, through the flnancla
straits of a man to whom lie had loaned money,
had a small manufacturing business thrust upon
him. His other business occupying all his time,
ho was desirous of disposing of this little shop.
Consulting tho advertising columns of ono of
the morning papers he ran upon this advertise

Mr. Knickerbocker addressed a letter to
"Capital," and In a few days he received a per
His caller was a middle-aged man of fine pres
ence and business methods. Ho Introduced
himself as Mr. lUrdcastle, agent for Mr. 'J homaa
Kairnaks, who was desirous of placing his sou
in snmo reliahlo business. The son was a wild
young fellow, and the father thought he would
settle down if he had a business.
Mr. Knickerbocker would sell for tin. 000.
Ho hardly liked the description for a rartner.
"Thu conversation drifted a good deal," said
Mr. Knickerbocker in relating the story: and
somehow it turned upon Western life. Mr.Hard
castle had spent a year ol two in California.
Now. I had spent my early business life in Cali
fornia and on tho frontier in Arizona. Conse
iptcntly, we became more than ordinary business
acquaintances before he had concluded hisllrst
"Yos, he called again. He left, saving that
he would consult with Mr. Falroaks, and had
no doubt he would be able to make a deal with
me. which, he confided, lie should make a
special effort to do out of puto friendship for
me. He was quite cniinilential about Mr. Fair
oaks's aftalrs.too; told mo the old man hud nindu
a hanel of money as projector of several big
fato. banks In this city and at the wutciing
"He came again to my ofllce a week later.
Thou he said Mr. Foiroaks had a man who had
been his dealer for many years and to whose
skill with tho cards ho owed much of tho success
of his fashionable 'bank.'
"' Tho old man hai about made up Ills mind
that he ought to do something for his old
dealer, let him retile from his place at tho table;
in short, ho thinks of putting him as an equal
partner with (lenrge in this business. Dick,
the dea'er, is older and steadier, you know,'
said Mr, tlsrdrastle in telling this to me, 'and
he will kind o' hold thu bov down. But tho old
man is peculiar and I can't hurry him.'
"Then I was eiiteitained by several stories
from I'airoaks's gambling room. How this
great statesman, or that well-known bank pi es
ident, or this leading light ill that church was a
constant player, anil won and lost thousands
at a sitting hu had heard: an anecdote wasie
lateilnf several iiirn and how thoy behacd as
winners or as Inosors. ...
" Of course I had some stones ot games I had
seen among the fioiitleriutn. I had ueter
plaved in my lite, but had seen faro so much
that I knew all about tho game. I had seen Bid
Handed Mike thrust his bow in through Tliirsy
Bill's hand, pinning it to tho table while Mike
laked in the pot.
" Mr. Ilardcastle was much edilled and left
with more reassurances that hewoulddohishist
to bring about a deal between me aud Mr. Fair
oaks. " It was ten days liefnre 1 saw Ilardcastle
again, and then he was qulto downcast auddls-
"' It's all up,' said he. 'Old Falrnaks and
tho boy linvo hail u tlnie-up.and the old man has
soured on him. He has turned the buyout of
his house und swears ho will neer look upon
his face again.'
' ( ieorge w anted to mnn y a girl he picked UP
at a ball. Hhe is a good girl I guess, but you
know Fairoaks is cutting quite a swell. Ho
iivrs lu u bang-up apuituieiit-housr, and he was
ambitious to marry thu boy.toold .Moncvhugs's
daughter. The boy was pig-headed aud
wouldn't listen to lesion. So the old man cut
him oil.' . ...
Ilardcsstlo seemed to cheer up a little after
he had gien vent to this, and chatted oiiate
cheorfullv for a time. Thou finally he said he
guesned the old mini would taku up Dick, the
dealer, and might bus thu factory for him. He'd
see what he could do with him.
"Another wiek passed and Hat deastle dropped
in on me again. There was a determined
sort of mi air about him and he looked me
tin oiigh and through with as tlriii and sharp a
pair of black eyes ns eer peered out fiom under
heavy, beetling brows.
"'Hec here, Mr. Knickerbocker.' said Hard
castle to mo in a mysterious, confidential woy;
'Old Fairbanks is acting like a luute. He do.
clares now that he won't do anything for Dick
nor (Ieorge lither. I hud a talk with Dick
about it and Dick was delighted with his pros
pects. He's getting old and and is anxious to
get out of the gambling business.
" ' But when I broached the subject to the old
man he tlew into a rogo and told me I was med
dling altogether too much in ids business. He
repudiated the scheme altogether aud so that
ends all chance of his taking your factory oft
your bauds. I told Dick and lie s all cut up.
"Mr. Ilardcastle paused again to notv the effect
of what he nid on me. but 1 maintained as Inno
cent an expression as 1 could, and he went on:
"' We want you to drop in there some night
and sit In. Dick can do just about as lie likes
witii the cards, you know. No successful faro
game is ever fair and honest, and Dick can make
a player win or lose Just as he likes, Theseciet
of his success as a dealer is his Judgment lu
leading a player on and pla ing him as a fisher
man does a trout before he lands him.
"' Well, Dick will manipulate the cards so
that vou will win out tiu.oon. Then wo will
meet here or soiuewhe re else and di ide it.
"'Ihli was the scheme. Mr. ' Hnrdcastle '
had devoted some six weeks of Ills aluabte time
which ought to have been spent at Hlng Sing
in working mr for a bunco game ?
" 'Oh, I think wcoui'ht to get $l."i,(ioo out
of it, 'said I after a moment of consideration.
That would lie .r,00ll apiece.'
" 'All right. I'm agreeable,' lcsiHiudcil Ilard
" When shall we do It ? said I.
" 'Any time you say. Hay to-morrow night.
You tell your wife that you will lne to stay at
the factory till tale. Ill call for you about
closing time, we'll go and have dinner togethei,
and then 111 show you the way to Fairoaks's
" I agreed. I always had a spirit of adventure
In my make-up. aud I rtsohed to see the tiling
through as far as it was safe and iuepeusio;
and so niixt day I told Mrs. Knickerbocker that
I wouldn't bo home to dinner.
"Of course. I knew that Ilardcastle had
planned to skin me like an eel, but I confess
that I was so innocent that I couldn't exactly
see how it would be done. Nothing had been
said about money in the interview.
"Just as my men weto leaving the factory the
next evening Mr. Ilardcastle walked luto my
office. Ho was as cool and calm as if he were on
his way to church. I wasn't. I've led the race
In a fifty-mile run with a pack of Indians on tho
plains, ami hso felt tho lingers of a redskin in

" I lighted the fragrant Havana which
Ilardcastle gave me on entering, and having
taken tin precaution before he entered to place
iu tho safe the roll of bills which I habitually
carried about iu my pockets, amounting to over
1,001), 1 locked tho door and we sauntered
"I enjoyed a splendid dinner and a bottle of

the scene of my denouement as a pal of one or

" 'Of course you've got your money for the

"It was Ilardcastle who broke the silence
which was so oppressing me. and his question
afforded me Infinito relief.. It was all clear to
mo now, I was not to be sandbagged, nor
fiarroted and robbed. I was simply to be fleeced
n a genteel and auiet way. , We had ascended
the steps leading to the elegant brown-stone
palace: his key was in the door.
"'Why I thought yon would furnish the

LEADVIUK'S FIRST PASTOR.
Ill Iterollertlnns of tho 1'iinernl of Texas
Jark and Charley Vivian.
Vim th Omnhn Herald,
" Speaking of Charles Vivian and Jack
Omohmidro, or ' T(jas Jack, ' as wo usod to
cull him iu Lendille, what a host of assocla.
tions crowd into the mind at tho mention of
the unmeH," said Hector T. J. Mackny, of St.
Paul's Church, of Council Bluffs, to the
Iletald man who invaded his study on learn
ing that he officiated nt tho funeral services
of both these men. " I read tho nrticlcs on
Texas Jack in the Herald, and it brought the
whole scene of the remarkublo funeral
vividly before my mind. Poor Jack belougod
to tho 'I abor Light Cavalry, of which I was
Clinpnlin.iiud of course the Mineral was a mili
tary one. It was held at the opern-hotinc, in
which I was then holding Sunday services.
Tho building was crowded, standing room
being nt a premium lung beforo tho services
begnn. During my address many a tear
might have been seen coursing down checks
that wero bronzed by oxposure. auel on faces
burdened by careless li lug the Hues seemed
to grow less marked. It was n great funeral,
all thu brass bands of tho city, mid all tho
civil aud military organizations uniting to
honor one whom they bad loved, for despite
his limits ho had muuy qualities which en
deared him to those who knew him.
' ' Hut Charloy Vivian's f tiuerul eclipsed that
of Texas .luck. I did not know until yester
dny that I had had tho honor of burring tbo
founder of tbo Elks, onda um glad that they
ire going to do tardy justice to bis memory.
Hut the papers are wrong in saying that his
death occurred a few months, ago. I left
Lcndvilio six years ngo mid his death must
bine occurred oight j ears ago at least. Poor
Clmrluy. Just the week beforo his death as
I was going down Harrison avenue ho caught
up with mo, took my arm and together wo
turned up Stuto street, bo tailing me of a caso
of charity which he m us interested iu reliev
ing. He was a well cducntod mun, the sou of
an English clergyman aud u membor of my
church. It was tho hist timo I ever saw
Charloy nlivo. In less than n week I was
startled by tho announcement of bis
douth -mid tho request that I oiheiate.
It happened that on account of tho
nlmeuco of tho officers of tbo regiment
of the National Guards, I was by rank officer
iu command, and tbo I oys insisted on iny
conducting tho fuuernl services in inv uni
form. In vain I pleaded that my ccclosiasti
cal garb was my uniform. Nothing would
answer but that arrayed iu my military wrap,
p'ugs. sword and all, I must conduct the fun
eralund lead thu procession on horseback.
hat a sea of faces looked into mine as I
walkctl on tho btago of the Tabor Opera
Ilouso, with the sword forever getting where
it did not bolnng, and making me feel ii con
tempt for military regalia I had never real
ireil beforo. Tho Fay Tompleton troupe oc
cupied tho stago with mo nud volunteered
to furnish music for tho occasion. And very
nicely they did their part, too, rendering
several appropiiato selections iu memory of
their dead comrade. Of course I had to
mako tho inevitable address, for no funornl
services wuro considerod complete in Leud
villo without somo kind of n sermon, and
when , told ot my last walk with poor
Charlie, mid spoke of his goodness of heart,
tho vast nuilieiico broke into the heartiost

"and everything which ho handled seemed

almost every instance the results seemed to
justify hU seeming recklessness. No matter

" Ho played in hundredsand in thousands,"
said tho leading attorney already referred to.
" and to him it was nothing to buck up a cold

ho was staking those heaps of money was
really worthless. I have myself, time ai.d
time again, seen him stake $15,000 upon a

tainly boitig something of an exaggeration.
Tho Btory goes that Livingstone, italston and
some others, after indulging in unusually

showed himself ablo to pass over and con

though, when ho bolioved it necessary lor
tho ' ' subject's " own good, ho could be suf
ficiently firm. It is rotated of him that he
once found it necessary to cut off absolutely
his former liberal allowance to n young rela

with a situatiou where ho was compelled to
work for a ery moderate salary.

"I would subscribe to all Bishop Potter has
said. Tho statements all seem to bo solid truths
and strongly put by the Bishop. They could
not lie too nflrn repratrtl nnd probably
would oflener bo beard from the pulpltx If
the pulpit themselves were not to a crrnter
or lesser extent controlled by the money
ltov. C. H. Illcliards, pastor of tho First Con
groRatlonal Cliutch, says; "I consider Bishop
Potter's remarks very timely. What we need in
this country is less regard for mere matorial
success and moro for character. It ought to be
impossible for indniduols and coaptations to
sain their ends becau"u rich, and the money
power as such ought not to rule in politics. 1
think the American people aro already alarmed
at this matter and aro taking steps to prevent
liriliery in elections, aud I have sufficient faith
in the patriotism and conscience and good sense
of the American people, when thoioughly
aroused, to believe they will correct tlieeo evils
that threaten them."

tion from Hlehmond.
IticnMOMD. Va., May 12. Bev. K. H. Tltt.
pastor of Vcnorable Street Baptist Church aud
associate editor of the Religion Herald, says of
Bishop Potter's sermon on riutocracy: "Of
course every good man agrees with Bishop Pot
ter in his donunclationCof praotical politics if by
that phrase is meant the purchase of votes and
similar disreputable practices. There may be
some question as to tho good taste of introduc
ing on such an occasion so much distinctly po
litical matter; but there can bo no difference of
opinion as to the serious danger threatening our
institutions In the purchasable vote. There aro
manv, however, who doubt tho efficacy of civil
sericoasa remedy for this dire evil. There is
not cnongh Plutocracy in the South to excite
alarm. Tho Bishop says we have exchanged tho
Washingtonian dignity for the Jcffersonian sim-
Flicity which was in truth only annthor nauio
or tho Jaeksouiau vulgaiity. lie obiiously be
comes a decided partisan. There aro a great
many thoughtful and patriotic peoplo who, while
they regard Washington with peculiar aud
roerentlal respect, think pretty highly also of
Thomas Jefferson. The state lines and cerc
monionsnesn of those earlier days are not inher
ently moro attrnct Ive or moro wholesome than the
Jeftoraoman simplicity of later times."
llev. II. Melville Jackson, rector of Qiace
Episcopal Church, said: "Bishop Potter had
for tho moment the ear of tho nation and lie
used his opportunity well. A great responsi
bility is thrown upon a man when ho is in con
scious pnsession of tho listening attention of a
whole people. At such a time ho becomos in a
sensoa piophet. and he must speak with all a
ptophets directness and boldness. It seems to
me all right. Thinking men must applaud his
denunciation of cortupt principles 111 politics
and his manly plea for tho old-timo simplicity
and purity. If it be thought that the time ns
ill-chosen, his Justification will be found iu the
emphasis whicli the occasion gavo his utterance.
There is only one thing in tlio address open to
Just criticism. His sneer at Jeflcrsoniau sim
plicity as synonymous with what hu was pleased
to call Mackt-onian wtlgarity ' was unworthy ot
him and decidedly in bad taste. "
llev. H. H. Lambeth, pastor of Broad Street
Methodist Church, said: "I hate read Bishop
l'ottei's addtoss with plcasuie. It is admirable
from whatover standpoint it is viewed and
worthy of the occasion which called for it."

IUltimouk, Md., May 18. llev. Boyal H.

While I lecognbe the fact that the Jacksnuian

Itcv.A.lI.Cross, one of tho oldest Presbyterian

Ucoiously puffing nv.ay at a stiong cigar.
The little man was ei-Hotel-keepor Dick

esque characters of Clearfield Couuty. Mr.
Evaus wns in a commuuicotivo mood, and
anocdotcs of tho founder of Dubois leaked
from him liko water through a siovc.
He remembered the old mau Dubois for
years back, aud said tho old mlllioni'iie was
ono of tho greatest e-haraetcrs bo had ever

the present city of Dubois, which now has a
opulation of ri.000 souls.
When the old man died a short timo ago be

SOO.t'O.000 feet of piuo lumber, besides the
bcmloL nud nn eigbt-feet vein of coal,
which is enty miles in circumference. The
estate also includes nine miles of farming
land in Beaver meadows with a soil seven
Just before the old man died he sold all

This was to avoid puying Die Ktuto the In

" In fact, bo's n rough diamond liko Coal

This naturally brought up the subject of
Coal Oil Johnny, and on this subject Mr.
Evaus grew eloquent. Mr. Evans began bv
saying that ho hauled oil with Coal Oil
Johnny aw av bock in IPfi.1. "Johnny." he
said, ' took his name from his mother, who
was a Miss Steel. It wns always believed
that he was tho son of old John McClintock.
McClintock sold n lot of oil laud to specula
tors in 1864, aud shortly olterward died,
leaving bis money to bis wifo nnd on her
death to Jobuuy Stool. Seth Klooura, of
Erie,, was appointed executor. The old
womnn died shortly after her husband's
death, and the exact amount ot money that
Johhny got was $50. 000 in gold and $44,000
in demand notes, known as gilt odgers.'
" With the high premium at that time the
money was worth ij?210,000. Slocum shortly
afterward got in, trouble through shooting a
colored man in Cleveland, but Johnny got
him off, nnd then Johnny and Slocum went
to Elmira. whore Johnuvoegau passing the

worth a high premium Johnny wns suspected
of stealing them and was nrrcsted. but Bill

turor in Sharon, got him off."
Johnny then enmo to Philadelphia and

companied him, said that ho remembered
well how Johnny bought a hnck and team
for a cab-driver, which killed tho cab-dnver

exaggeroted, said Mr. Evans, and tbo total
amount ho got away with was nbout 225,000.
His wife managod to Havo obout $5,000.
Johnny then worked at llousevillo. iu a

saved his earnings and addod them to the
