' A strong effort is being made for the re
lease of Absalom Bowser, sentenced to the
penitentiary for ten years for the killing of
Obadiah Haymaker. It is alleged he was
made the scapegoat, and that be labored
under many disadvantages in pleading his
case. A commutation of the death sentence
of George Clark is asked for on the ground
that he was conTicted on insufficient evi
dence. R. M. Geary, who has served C of a
20-year sentence for burglary, claims to be
the victim of a desire for glory on the part
of private detectives.
terzaxL txlzokax to tux dispatch.i
Hasbisbubg, April 10. A large num
ber of naners have been filed with the Board
of Pardons favorable to be application of
Absalom M. Bowser, who was convicted in
Allegheny county on August 14, 1884, and
sentenced to a term of ten years in the peni
tentiary for killing Obadiah Haymaker in
the Murrysville riot In the petition of the
prisoner, on which the application for
Executive clemency is based, it is main
tained that bis conviction was wrong under
the law, and the facts of the case, and the
sentence pronounced upon him by the Court,
unjustly disproportionate to the nature ot
his offense, and was not imposed in accord
ance with legal forms and requirements.
It is set forth that he is about 62 years old,
has a wife and several children, and has
served about six years of his term. He was
convicted on ex parte testimony, and was,
under the law then in operation, incompetent
to testify in his behalf. If the law allowing de
fendants to give evidence, now on the statutes,
had been in existence, he could have produced
statements which would have either resulted in
Ills acquittal or extenuated his offense.
WADE THE SCAPEGOAT.
He was at a great disadvantage because his
friends connected with him in the affair which
resulted in the death of Haymaker had all
been arrested, and consequently disqualified
as witnesses at the trial. Of nearly two dozen
men taken into custody for connection with
the Murrysville riot all but two had escaped
punishment, himselt and Milton Weston. An
other grievance of the prisoner Is that he was
not asked by the Judge who imposed the sen
tence on him whether he had anything to say
why the sentence of the law should not be pro
nounced on him, and straightway was sent to
the penitentiary. He speaks of Milton Wes
ton having received Executive clemency with
the universal approval of the public, leaving
Lira alone to bear the punishment for the
whole offense. One petition filed in the inter
est ot the prisoner is signed by 3,614 and an
other by 991 people.
Ell McCormick, a Justice of the Peace at
Irwin for many years, in a letter, speaks of
Bowser not as a murderer, but one of the most
sympathetic and benevolent of men, who
would divide his last crost with the destitute.
As to his trial McCormick savs it was a traves
ty of justice and his conviction due to public
A MUCH-WBONGED MAN.
Ex-Representative Beacom, Chairman of the
Republican Committee of Westmoreland
county, says he was a much-wronged man;
Heber McDowell, of Pittsburg, that his pardon
would meet with general approbation; Mayor
Pearson, of Allegheny, that the sentiment pre
vailing at the time of the conviction of the
prisoner was inflamed and embittered, and that
justice could not be obtained; F. F. M. McKcI
vey. Superintendent of the Board of Health,
that all persons with whom he has conversed
on the subject of the application of the prisoner
for a pardon want Executive clemency ex
tended to him: Representative Robison, of
Allegheny, that be has dearly paid the penalty
of bis crime; Senator TJpperraan, that his liber
ation would meet with general approval; Repre
sentative Mecbesney, of Westmoreland, that
the Murrysville affair was a contest between
two corporations, and that the prisoner had no
intention ol committing a murder.
Among others who have written letters to the
Board of Pardons for the favorable considera
tion of the application for Executive clemency
are Representatives Lemon, Lafferty. Chalfant,
Bulger and Richards, D. E. Weaver, Thomas
J. Hudson, John Rial, Protbonotary of West
moreland county; D. K. McGonecle. Clerk of
the Courts of Allegheny county; Dr. W. A.
Hamilton, ex-Mayor Wyman, Dr. A. J. Burch
field, James Bradley and the publishers of sev
eral papers in Pittsburg and Westmoreland
A STRONG PLEA TOE CLAEK.
In the case of George Clark, of Greene
county, the murderer of William McCausland,
a number of letters have been written to the
Board of Pardons asking for the commutation
of the death penalty to imprisonment for life.
Among them two were written bv the late
Charles E. Boyle, of counsel for the prisoner.
One of these bears date of April 2, 1SS8. and
says: "It is a remarkable verdict, a verdict
which no just and courageous Judge dare let
stand." In the other letter ex-Congressman
Boyle says, in addressing one ot the attorneys
for the defense: "Tell Clark to stand up under
the terrible burden. Innocent men have been
hanged, in Pennsylvania on false testimeny,
but ne man was ever yet hanged when there
was an utter absence of evidence against him,
true or fale." This letter was written Sep
In the petition of Robert M. Geary, who was
convicted in Allegheny countv in 1SS3, and sen
tenced to the penitentiary for 20 years, it is
alleged that the prisontr had bad no connection
with the burglary and robberies for which he
was convicted. It is also stated that the prls-j
oner supposed as "was pieaaing guilty to Dut
one indictment, whereas he was sentenced on
four. Involving the burglarizing of a house and
the assaulting and robbing oi persons on the
highway. In all these cases It is held that he
was sacrificed on the reputation of John Gor
don, -with whom he associated, the mistaken
leal ot private detectives whose reputation for
skill and efficiency were at stake, the public
clamor then existing and the eagerness of the
respective prosecutors to have the accused
punished. A number of persons have written
to the Board in vindication of the character of
tre prisoner before his arrest.
The Board of Pardons, at its meeting to-day,
considered the Johnson murder case, but was
unable to react a decision on tho application
for the commutation of the death penalty to
Imprisonment for life. The board will hold its
next meeting next Tuesday, meanwhile the
Governor will grant another respite to the
murderer, as his execution is fixed for next

FIEED ON THE FLAG.
A Dominican War Vessel Attempts to Capture
a Ship Piling the Stars and
Stripes A Lively Chase
on the Open Sen.
New York, April 10. Captain Stubbs,
of the schooner Carrie A. Bucbnam, which
arrived to-day from St. Domingo City, re
ports that on March 21, when off Saona
Island, at about noon, he sighted a vessel
steaming toward bis vessel from the land,
then distant six or eight miles. The craft
proved to be a Dominican vrar vessel. She
laid her course to intercept the Bucknam,
but could not do so owing to the strong
breeze then prevailing, and fell astern half
or three-quarters of a mile. "When nearly
in the schooner's wake, much to the sur
prise ot the crew, she fired a shot which
struck the water only a few yards from the
She then gave chase, but with a good
strong breeze the schooner soon distanced
her. Alter keeping up the chase for about
two hours she gave it up, and putting about
steamed for land. She was a low, rakish,
three-masted steamer of about 500 tons bur
den, apparently of French or Spanish
build. Her decks were crowded with men.
What her errand was can only be con
jectured, as the Bucknam, was far outside of
their jurisdiction and on the high seas,
where they could have no legitimate right
to overhaul her.
The American flag was flying at her peak
all the time, it having been hoisted as soon
as. the steamer was made out to be a war
vessel. Captain Stubbs says nothing was
heard by the Bucknam's crew of this vessel
or of the rebellion at St. Domingo City The
better class of people there hesitate to speak
their minds even to foreigners. They no
doubt are afraid of compromising themselves.
IT TERMINATED FATALLT.
The Accident lo Colonel Richard Long, of
Chicago, Kesnlrs In Death.
Colonel Bichard Long, of Chicago, who
was injured lastThursdayon the Ft. Wayne
Bail Road, died at the Allegheny General
Hospital about 5 o'clock last evening. His
death was not caused by the injuries he re
ceived, but was due to morphine. It was found
necessary to keep bim under the Influence of
tbe drug and. as he bad been in the habit of
taking it regularly, large doses had to bo given
him to have the desired effect. The attending
physicians and Superintendent Patterson of
tbe Allegheny General Hospital, say that his
injuries were not of a fatal character and his
death was caused by the use of morphine.
In sneaking ot the accident last night Buner-
intendent Patterson said: "Colonel Long was
a very delicate man. He was wounded twice
in the army, and was not able to indure the In
jury he received. He was addicted to mor
phine, and his svstem was broken down
througb the use of the drug. The accident
was not a serious one. His band was cut off,
and he received a scalp wound. Any ordinary
man would have recovered, but we found ft
necessary to give him morphine. An ordinary
dose did not hare any effect, as he was accus
tomed to using the drug. This had more to do
with his death than the injury."
Colonel Long was a widowpr, and his father-in-law,
Mr. J. McLandburg, of Chillicothe, O.,
was with him when he died.' He has taken
charge of tbe body, and it will be removed to
his former home to-day.
The deceased resided in Chicago, but was
well known here. He was connected with the
Pittsburg Forge and Iron Company at Verner
station, and was on bis way to visit tbe works
when he was run over by a locomotive.

a headache, a backache, a

a weak, languid, nerveless,
It's not to be wonderedt.

have eaten hearty food, with

He was so lame that ho was obliged to walk
with crutches and could not stand alone with
out them. In five minutes he was running
around the platform with his crutches over his
shoulder, as well as he ever was in his life.
Another gentleman who suffered from a lame
shoulder and who had not been able to put on
his coat without help in five years, was cured in
less than five minutes. A lady who had been deaf
flvo years was made to hear a whisper. A lady
suffering from rheumatic headache was re
lieved of all pain in a few moments' time.
These wonderful cures were witnessed by an
audience of more than 1,000 people. Dr. Smith

From 8oo Boys' hand
some Sack Suits, like

We want ypu to compare
these suits with any of
fered elsewhere at io,
and, if there is any dif
ference in the qualities,
it will be in favor of
ours. It was only by
reason of our having
bought a very large bill
of these suits that we
managed to get them as
cheaply as we did. They
were intended to retail
for $io, but, if you come
in before Saturday night,
you can take choice for

Over 100 styles to select from all made in our own Custom

tion and will send him A GRAND EASTER" GIFT.
From 1,200 Boys' Short
Pant Suits sizes 4 to 14.
There is nothing very
startling about this, you
may say. And neither
there 'is. Any clothing
house, it is true, can ad
vertise and sell Boys'
Short-Pant Suits at $3,
but here's the rub
these particular suits are
no shoddy materials, but
fine, all-wool Cassimeres,
Worsteds and Cheviots,
made in the very height
of fashion and are truly ,1
and honestly worth every

From 650 Boys' very fine
Cutaway Frock Dress
Suits sizes 14 to 19
just the thing for the
nobby college youth or
the fashionable city
youngman. These suits
come in choice imported
materials, in Scotch
effects, plaids, silk mix
tures and solid light and
dark colorings. Make
and trimmings are first
.class, while the fit is per
fection itself. Come in
'and take a look at these
suits, and then, if you
take the trouble to find
out, you can see the
same identical suit3

fine suits (see illustra

themselves paid a cold

doesn't concern you.
All you need to know is
that the suits can be
had at our store this
week for $5, and, if
you're wise, you'll buy
one as quickly as pos
From a select assortment of
Imported Kilt Suits, sizes 3
to 6. They represent the

bewitching and charming
little garments you ever laid

them they roust be seen.
They are our own exclusive
styles, no house in this, city
having as yet received them.
With you'd give us a chance
to try one on your little boy.
No harm done if you don't
