Mrs. Schindier, wife of Johaan Schlrdlet. living
in Hoflmaa Boulevard, near Newtown L. L, was
arouaed at about 7 o'clock yeatcrday morning by
the groans and orier. of a man outaide the rear of
the house. She awakraed her husbaad, and he
found, lying on the steps and oovered with blood
aad bruises, Heary Westfall. who hid left the

a trlend, Hertnan Kraemcr, intending to
go to his home on the fana of Joha
Backus, at White Pot, where be workei West
fall vm almost uaooaaeioua, but told Schindier
tbat he had beea asaaultad aad zobbed by three
Poles who worked on the same farm with him.
Schindier immedjately came to the village and
Informed Justloc Scheper, Oonstable Meyer and
Dr. Borth, and all went to the hcuae where the
wounded maa lay
Dr. Borth made a supcrflcial examination, and
fonnd that tho man was oovered wlth cuts and
bruises aad was injured iaternally. Ho expreased
the opinioa that the maa could not live loag, and
ordered the coastablo aad Overseer of the Poor
Jeromus Kapalya to convcy him to St. Catherine's
Hospital, Brooklya. The physioians at the bospital
gaid that Wcstfall would probably die.
The three men whom Westfall ohnrged with
spjault are Anthon Valinski, Johana Yorski and
fttnl Itubokovitcb. Justice Soheper issued war
ranta for the arrest of the three men, and Valinski
and Yorski were arrestrd, but Rubokovitoh, who
the others allege, committed tho araailt and
robbery, has disappeared. He was traoed to a
lodging- house in \veat*t.J New-York, where he
had applied for a room in the afternooa.
It i* suoposed that he lntends takin* paeaage on

?*% story, the four moa were at her house on
turday aight until a late hour, and Westfall
Kokl his wateh to Rubokoviteh for $10. West?

Cheyenne, Wy. T.. March 10,-Word oomes front
Canon City of a seriee of murdera jn the Yeliow
stone Park, the vlctima being flve French tour
ftMs, three men and two women. " Hank" Ferry,
the guide, who was surreptitJoualy oonduoting the
partv through the Natlonal Park. in vlolation of
the Government rules. eseaped and told his story
to the miners at Canon City. He waa half
crajfcd from exoifcement and fever, and haa stnee
dtoappeared. Ferry was on a drunken spreo ln
Montana wben the1 tourists secured hiin. They
were anxious to aee the Nntionai Park in winter,
but knew that viaitors were not admltted at thto
waaon. They were sent to Ferry aa an ex
P*4tenced guide and an unacrupulous fe'low, and
tlwir offer of money made him their sorvant at
Ferry spoke a little French, and learned that
the tourista wnre from Lyona, and that the men
were retirod merchanta. ThcJr nnjnes were J.
VJucent, W. Beclair and Paui Gerot* tho two
former being aceompanied by their wtve*. Gerot
waa an unolc of one of the women. Ferry bired
two overbnd wagons, bought eight mules
and a atock of provlsions, and the
T?rty enured the Park from tbe southweat
coraer. The Frenchmen had allowed the guide
to provide evcrything but the liquora. These
they bought thenwelves. and Ferry says the wines
were of the flnest. Tbe wonders of tbe Yellow
atone region were admired. Tho tourists ahot
a Uttle game, and every evening ended in a drink
ing bout around tha oampflre. Two days were
spent in Battlesnake Canon, and on the seeond
night the four men drank deeply. AI1 four fell
aaleap in the open air, and tbe guide, who wna
the ftrst to wake, at daylight left his slumberlng
eompanions to attend to the wants of the mules
which were plcketed aome roda away. Then
came the nttack. Ferry aays:
" I aaw that tbe mules had been stampededi
nnd Just as I started to run I felt I wna sbot
A bulkt was in my leg, and I fell. Two horse
raen, who I tblnk were Indfana, eame gnlloplng
by me,' and one of them leened over me wlth
his gun raised like a club. I felt a blow, and
that's aU I know."
ferry was unconseious for several houra, and
lort considerable blood from tho wound in his
leg. Wben be reoovered his sensea nnd
had tled up hto wound, he orawlod baek to camp.
A shocking sight met his gaze. Tho tourista had
been murdered in thrir iWp, and tho flve hloody
sQTpats lay in a heap, riddled with bullets and
eat by kulvea. The two women had been soalned,
tbe wagons looted of everything of value, even
to the revolvew, and the watchea of the desd
tourista had been takm. The mules had dis
apnearrd, and thero was only tbe bowling of a
pack of wolves waiting his departure to begin
their feast to show that Ferry waa not the only
Hving thing in the wt solitnde. He travclled
by alow stages to the enstern end of the Park,
mecTing an occasional hunter, but seeing no signs
of Indians or marauders.
Wban he arrived at tbe minlng town and told
his story, it waa only aftar repeated queatJoning
that all the faeU couM be obtoined. He was so
dn&ed hy the blow on his head and tbe sboek of
the masaacre that it waa a week before tbe miners
were eonvineed that the murdera had bera oom
mitted. Ferry seemed flxed in his belief tbafc hif*
assailunta were Indians, but th- miners be'.'e/e tbtt
they were a party of desperat* mfn? buntera, or
nerhapa horee-thieres. Tliey say that a whlto
mau can learn to sealp a womnn almost as neatly
M a savage, but that it is more <lifllcult to b(t a
man's hAir aoientiflcolly. They aacribe the scalp
ing to the (lesire on tlie part of the murderers to
direet suspicion to tho Indians. Tho minera or
gnnized a party to penetrate into tho Park and
bury the bodics, and, if possible, discover some
traees of the murderers. Ferry was to go wlth
them, but one night he dlsappeared and the ex
pedttion was abandoned.
It to thought by some that the guide wns one
of tbe robben: that he led the travellers inV>
an amhuscade; that the robbers then attacked
him and kft hlm for deod, insteod of sbaring the
booty with him, and that Ferry dreaded their
vengeance if diaoovered leading a party of aveng
ers to their haunta.

These incidents will explasn one point of
differenee which steikea even the most e?n?l
Tbe army of offlce-eeekere like this one mo
talaed a majorlby of ? exs." Most of them rcre

besiegea the White House and beaete the Execntiv*
Departmeata also eontoins a majorlty of " exs.*
There is a heavy aprinkling of old soldiers, and
the bnttong of the G. A. B, and the rosettes"of~tug
Loyal Legioa are more conspicuous tiian evei
before. There seems to be geaeral coavictioa
that hoaorable servioe ia the Union Army or Navy
will aot be regarded as a political disability by,
this Admiaistration?flve members of which, in
cluding the President, wore the Union blue But
the ex-soldiers ara outaumbered by the " exs"
who obtaiaed tbeir titlea in the civil serviee of
tbe Oovernment before the days of " Cleveland]
nnd Beform." Perhapa one out of every four
men one meeta is not an " ex," but three of
them at kast are ex-somethiag, from ex-Secretary
dowa to ex-messenger?and every motber's son of
them, almost waats his ? old phvee," or sometbing
bottcr. They ukaow all the rones" of office
seeklng and office-gettlng, aad therefore are
formidable competitors in the race with men
who have now cntcred it for the flrst time, despite
the prejudice which exists against cx-office -holdera
who devote their energies to offlce-seeking.
Another striking feature of-tbe crowd whiob
nlghtly gathcrs in every hotel is that it is eonv
posed of men who are descrlbed as " hold-overa,*
meaning persons who esesped the official guiHo
tine during Cleveland's reign, usually by playing
tbe role of " iaformer" against their former of.
flcial superiors and peofeesing to be ardeot Demc
erata, bnt sometimes beeauae thelr servieee were
indtspenasble. The ? hold-overs" who have re>
taiaed their plaees by informing ot by toadying
or professioas of politioal ooaversion are among
the men whose anxious faoes haunt tha hotel
corridors. Like Jeffersoa Davis and hia teLow
eonspiratorn, all they want is * to be kt akme.*
Ope of them was a Virginia postmaster appointed
by President Arthur, at the instancc of Senatox
Mahone. When Cleveland came ia this postx
msster repudiated his party aad Senator Mahone'i
reeommendation, in order to be a " hokl-over.*
Now he is wonderiag how he caa rehabilitate hinv
self politically and keep his office. Some of the
" hold-overs-1 are justly alarmed over certaia ia
dioatioas that President Harrisoa intends to keep
the pkdges aad abidc by the declarations of the
RepubUcaa party in ita National platform, which
contains tliese sigaincaat worda:

have deaertcd not only the cause of honest govern
ment, of aound flnance, of freedom and purlty of the
bailot, but espootally, luve deterted the cause oi
reform in the Civil Serviee.
These words apply wlth even greater foree to
the Mngwump beaeflciaries of tbe sham reform
Admiaistratioa of Grover Cleveland than theyi
do to Mugwumps who aever succeeded ia gettiag
their haads into the publio erib. Thus far,

The Democrats and Mugwumps flnd a great
deal of comfort in saying that " the aumber aad
demaads of offloe-aeekere are greater than they
were four yeare ago." That is not true, but, if rC
were, one faot mlght be pieaded in explanaUon and,
