SENSATIONAL SrORT OF A MCE
Artbar Arthbothnst Confewei to the
Harder of Ex-Major Bowman,
of East SU Lonlg.
St. Loins, Mo,, September 14. Ar
thur Arthbothiut, nli.i A. L. Pitmenn,
Uae Charles Walker, alias Pa-ooni,
recent! Treated at Covington, Tenn.,
basc3Efsed to the Sheriff of that
county n( haring mnrdered the late
Mayor Bowman, ol East Bt. Lonifl, on
the 20 n day of last November. The
Sheriff bas sent tbe confession to the
Vjut 8L LrAiii authorities, and it Is in
abeUnce as follows: "Dating the
early part cf November, 1885,1 was
visiting in East 6U IauIb. and while
'walking in the ontakirts of the town
boat dusk one evening I was ap
proached by a well dressed man of
pleasing manners, who stopped and
conversed with me. After a while he
asked me il 1 wanted t9 make some
money. I to'd bim 'Yes.' I was
pretty rard up, so I was ready to do
moat snvthinir. He said there wai a
man in Em Bt Louis whom he
wanted t put out of the way. I told
bim I was b a man, and I could make
arrangements io kidnap his victim,
lie laid be did not want him kid
npped,,but nit out of the way. I
said I 'would murder tbe man
for fSOOO. If I was going
to be tanked at all I wanted
to sell myself for a decent amount. I
did not intend to commit murder,
however; I meant to kidnap the man
and keep him in an atylum. J)y this
means I could extoit money from my
captive and my principal at the tame
time. We made an appointment to
meet afiaio, and at this sccsnd inter
view I learned tht my employer was
a vice president of a railroad cr mpany
and a ri aidant of Sr. Louis. The final
arrangements were then made, and I
tben igreed to do the job for $2500. I
atirted immediately for New York,
and while there made arrangements
with 'Dandy Jim' and 'Striped Charley
Blake' t amist me. On the lt)th of
November 1 went back to et. Louis,
and tbere comp'cted the details of tbe
tcheme. 1 bought a bulldog revolver,
a flvt shooter of 41 cliber, and two
long hunting knivei. I didn't intend,
I want it understood, to murder Mr.
Bowman, but only bought tbe weap
ons to defend mysMf if he should re
sist my attempt to kidnap bim. That
evening 1 met the railrcad vice pres
ident by appointment, and while
we were talking together Mr.
Bswman pissed by. 'There is
the man laid my companion,
'that I want you to pot out of tbe
way.' He gave me his photograph so
that I could mike no mistake. On
the next night my p'ana were com
plete, except that my accomplices bad
not arrived. I stationed a hack near
Mr. Bowman's botue. in which it was
my intention to drive him to an
asylum, where I bad made arrange
ments for his confinement. I tben
concealed myself near a lumber pi!e in
front of Mr. Bowman's house and
waited. I tocn perceived the gentle
man walking in my direction, and
when be came opposite me I sprang
out in front of him and presentnd my
pistol in front of bis face snd com
manded him lo halt, lie tela 1 my
hand and I told him to Ut go, that I
was not going to kill him nor take hlH
money. He dropped my hand and
stepped away a foot or two and called
To ice!' la order to quint him I
raised my revolver and fired lie fell
face downward, and I then knew that
1 hiul done worse than 1 had intended,
I did not even then comprehend that
1 had killuj him. I only intended
to disable him, pint's him in
the carrioge and take him to
the asylum. 1 walked up to his
body and found that he was dead. I
then started to etcaps and hnd gone
but a short distance when 1 met my
employer. He then paid me my
money and we went to his honee in
1st. Louis and spent the remainder of
the night. Kirly in the morning1, dis
guised as a woman, 1 took tbe firat
train lor Bpringiieiu, m.
The confession tben details his trav
els through the Sju'h and his final ar
rival at Covington. Tenn,, and his bub
eoquent an est lie states that be
makes tbe coufrssion voluntarily, Him
ply because of a guilty conscience. He
knows his employer's name, his place
of reiidence, and cou'd eaily identify
him if he should ever see bim ngain.
He refuses to declare the vies presi
dent's name, but promises to do so
when the proper time shall arrive.

THE LAST BOND CaLL.
Treasury Ofllclali Disappointed la
Niw York, September 14. A Wash
ing'on special to the Port tays: The
Treasury officials are disappointed in
their expectations of a response to the
calls lor too voluntary surrender ol
3 per cent, bonds. The limit of time
will txpi-e tomorrow. The bonds
came in with considerable freedom at
fmt. then money became easit-r, and
they d.opptd off altogether. The last
payment under the call waj made lu
New York on Sept;mb;r 6th and was
reported tottie Uuned States Trea
urtr on September nth. Since then
no mere bonds have been snrreadsre J
and the total amount received is only
$788,000. Under tbeee circumstances
it is ruva'ded as probable that another
bond call of at least lO.COO.OOO and
perhaps f 15,000,000 will bs issuad on
Thu eday or F.iday next, Ac'.ing
Attorney General Jenka itat'd tbl
morning that be bad still under con
sideration the questions submitted to
him by tho Treasury Department as
to whether national banks can retain
tbe 8 per cent bonds as security for
circulation after the bonds have ceased
to bsar interest. He was not yet pre
pared to give an opinion.

A novel scene wai witnessed here

way to an appointment. Besides be
ing fine debaters and eloqueot stump
ers, both gsntlemen are accomplished
musicians, the violin being tueir fa
vorite instrument. Lirge numbers of
the friends of each assembled at tbe
hotel where the two brothers were

for a time delighted tbeir bearers with
some as fine mutic as was ever hmrd

tions tbey would throw in occasionally
tbe ArkamaW Traveler, ICoiin tits Bow
and local melodies which fairly sit
the crowd wild. Two candidates for
Governor of a great Btatu, brothers,

friendly and brotherly manner, play-

COLONIZATION IN CANADA.
Canadian Preach From New Eua-
land to Mettle In tbe Dominion.
Montbsal. September 13. Negitis-
tions bavejutt been concluded bere
with the government oi tins rrovince
and the Montreal Colonize ion So
ciety, at the bead of which is Arch
bishop tubTf, by u:. Jonnon a
Paline, of Lawrence, and Camiile
Rouesin, a merchant of Lowell, Maas.,
who were duly appointed delega'cs
by 100 heads of rrench Canadian
families in those towns and the
neighboring country, to make ar
rangements fur tbeir return to this
Province. These French Canadians
wish to return to Canada and settle on
land in tbeir native Provinc?, as many
others have alnndy done. A contract
has been entered into by the delegates
by wbioh 60,000 acres of land in thej
La JJevre and Lt Konge valley, in
tbe Ottawa district, have been secured
for the settlement of families whose
intention it is to come when the
clearing of the land and the buildicg
of boueea is completed. A special
fund having been subscribed for these
fiurpoS' s. tbey will come in an organ
sea body and take possession, pro
vided with Implements to till the
land. Msny have already returned
through the exertions of Fstber La
Belle, who has been a pioneer in
colonising the district in question,
which is of great extent. Tbosi who
have come have besn very succrss'ul,
being more progressive than before
they left their own Province. Tbe
present movement In expected to be
tbe beginning of sn ex'enslve re
patriating of tbe French element.
Nnrvival ol the Fllteat.
For some time rait tho ques ion of
purity in baking powders has formed
quite a feature of newspaper diecus
sions, and ominent- doctorn of philos
ophy have given opinions as to the in
gredients of many cf the articles sold
under that name. Toe investigations
havo nnrrowed down ti the limit
which awards the Royal Bjk'ng Pow
der the palm of pmity, and eeveral of
tbe most d:stlnguisheil acien'is's have
testille l to their conviction that no ex
traneous cr delcterions matter enters
into its composition. The R ytl Bak
ing Powder Company have nctileved a
world wide reputation f ir tbe tuoceej
which has marked their preparation
nf cream of tartar for baking purposes.
it la indisputably shown that ttiey
have eliminated all elements of tar
trate of lime, alum or other impurities,
and present t the public a healthful
and chemically pure article. Nur.h
wiuely known chemists as Henry
Morton, K. Ci. Love, II. A. Molt, Wm.
McMnrtrle and ethers have verified
its superiority over other manufac
tures, and tett' lHd, throngh practical
experience, to its excellence. It is
well for families fo observe the faot
that it coets more to manufacture the
Royal Baking Powder than any other,
but it is, as shown by cherolcHl analy
sis, the one "absolutely pure" baking

Forrian Workmen for America.
PiTrenrao.PA .September 14. Pitts
burg is threatened with aa influx of
foreign workmen. The depression
felt in vaiinus pattiof Great Bii'ain,
epppcially in the iron and steel pro
ducing districts, is having the effect of
driviug this skilled labor into Ameri
can fields. Exaggerated reports of a
great boom in iron in and around
Pittsburg have reached North Staffjrd
shire workmen, and they are only
waiting to bear the report of a com
mittee appointed to examine into the
condition of affairs here, btfure a
number of them, assisted by their more
prospsrotu friends, will embark for
this city. A vigorous opposition ti
the movement is expected from the
labor organiza'iorjfl of this country.

the freight tiaio bad orders to go to

to Irving, wbich is this side, and it
was these orderj that caused the col
lision. The excitement amocg the

The scenes in the smoking or were

bv the heavy pressure of tbe

danger. Then come ttie terrible shock

aa interview Mis. Sieiiel bM: "I was
in tbe first coach, next to tbe smoking
car. The traia was a large one, and
carricd'a la'ga number of excursion
ists as well as regular paspengerH. Tbe
first we knew of the col ision was a
terrific crash 1 ko an explosion. No
body was hint except those in the
smoking car. Tbe sight was so horri
ble that I could not look at it. Not a
single car was thrown from the track,
but the smoker was completely
telo.'coped. It was a mery
that our car was not cashed bI'O. It
was a narrow escape. Cine young man
ii the Bmokor eaved himself by drop
ping on the fhoraud escaped with a
low bruises. I did not learn the cause
ot the accident, but we wera going
very s'ow. while tho freight was com
ing at a high rate of speed. We were
just one length off tbe trestle when
the collision occurred. Some of tbe
wounded were taken to different
houses, and one of tbe coaches was
turned into a hospital. Ia another
coaib the dead were placed. Most of
the excursionists remained st Silver
Creek, intending to return home. The
regular pasengera for Buffalo and
other points cimo on this afternoon
