The Republicans of New York met in
convention yesterday at Saratoga. Piatt
was in supreme command, and the utmost
harmonv prevailed. The platform declares
that the liquor traffic should be restricted,
and Chauncey Depew, the temporary chair

rSFECLU. TELEGUAM TO THE DXSrATClM
Saratoga, September 25. The story of
to-day's Republican Convention is a story
of the masterly force and political ingenuity
of one man. It is an illustrative incident
in the career of a man -who has ascended to
power from the depths to which a crushing
fall brought him. The man is Thomas C.
Piatt, who, while holding no place in poli
tics or the Government, and while operating
simply from a merchant's office, has yet
managed to impress the Government of the
nation and control the politics of one party
in the greatest State in the Union.
Just a year ago Mr. Piatt was one of four
Republican leaders who divided the man
agement of the newly-created machine in
this State. Mr. Piatt is now the big head
of the party organization unopposed, if
not unquestioned. The party called this
convention, and the two leaders who had
not "profited by the party's fortunes, decided
to let Mr. Piatt run his own convention in
his own way, and take the full responsibility
THEY HAD TO COME.
The proposed absence of the third and
fourth man of the quartet was published
broadcast The people discussed it, the
newspapers dwelt On, and the Republicans
became excited over it The consequence
was that public opinion reached out its
strong arms and literally dragged the ab
sentees to Saratoga.
Mr. Miller came trailing in, the last man
to get here. Mr. Depew was met with an
offer ol a conspicuous and congenial place
in the convention. Mr. Miller was told he
could have practically every place on the
ticket about to be nominated. But Mr. Mil
ler would not let his henchmen figure on the
As this engineering took until last night,
the slate fixed upon as the ticket to be nom
inated by the convention was not publicly
known until early this morning. But every
thing that was wanted had been accom
plished. The big four were together. The
harmful rumor that the party was in
A STATE OF DISCORD
was silenced sufficiently to give the Repub
lican editors and leaders a basis for denial,
and more than all this, Thomas Cassar
Piatt was not left to run the convention
alone. The only public part he took in it,
by the way, was to introduce a resolution in
favor of holding a World's Pair in New
To-day's convention consisted of 777 dele
gates. The increase of representation will
be 84, of which Kings county and New York
each gain 15 delegates. In the other counties
of the State the increase is small in each
case, some counties making no gains, but
none losing a delegate. There are, however,
gains in Oneida aid Onondaga counties,
owing to the increased Republican vote in
1888 over the Republican vote in 1884.
The convention was called to order by
Chairman Knapp, of the State Committee,
and prayer was offered by the Rev. Dr. Mc
Kean. After prayer the roll of delegates
was ordered called, but on motion of ex
Governor Cornell the reading of the roll
was dispensed with and the Chairman an
nounced that the roll as prepared by the
Secretary of the State Convention would
stand as official unless changed by order of
the convention. C. M. Depew was an
nounced as the temporary Chairman of the
CIIATTXCEr DErEW'S ADDRESS.
In accepting the position to which he had

.Republican Convention of the htitc of Hew
York. We are here taking one of the too in
frequent days from our avocations ana pursuits
to (jive our time and our best thoucht to the
higher and more important business of the
government or the Commonwealth. The fa
miliar truism that the prosperity and happiness"
of the people depenc" upon the. wise ad
ministration of public affairs applies with un
usual force to onr action.
The experience of a quarter of a century has
demonstrated that the prosperitr, development
and progress of the Republic, and the bJjrhest
interests of onr State, are best promoted and
advanced under Republican administration. It
Is therefore for us to labor with enthusiasm
and harmony for Republican success. The dis
putes and controversies among Republicans,
the accounts of which fill the air, exist only in
the Imagination, ad come only from the pen
and tongues of the enemy.
QUITE A CHANGE.
When we last met the Democratic party was
in possession of the Government, and for four
years had enjoyed Its long-coveted opportunity
to prove its capacity for affairs. After a long
and exhaustive debate In the press and upon
tbe platform the power has been taken from
Its hands. That its 25 years of tutelage In the
minority and under the very best instruction of
Republican statesmen have failed to teach it
the art of government is due to inherent and
radical defects in the organization, and its
principles, which are beyond the 'cure of tho
jnnt nonet purposes and of the wisest brain.
The surplus In the Treasnrv. which has con
stituted so large a factor in discussion and at
tempted legislation, still exists and Increases.
Alt parties admit its evils, and Its dangers are
transparent, but the surplus is not money to be
trifled with or squandered. It belongs to the
people, and represents unnecessary taxation.
The effort to dispose of it led to tho extra
ordinary attempt to put in force the experi
ment of rodncing the surplus by destroying the
prosperity which made it possible. For the
first time in 15 years the Republican party is In
possession of the executive and legislative
branches of the Government
A, RESPONSIBLE POSITION.
The whole responsibility now devolves upon
them, confident m their ability to wisely ad
minister the trust The surplus will be re
duced by removing unnecessary burdens and
adjusting taxation upon private lines. In
ternal revenue and tariff laws are never per
fect but when they are reformed by their
friends, as they will be during the coming
session of Congress and the administration of
our President i
The modifications will remove unnecessary
taxation without impairing in any degree the
bed rock principle of protection of American
industries The persistency and consistency
with which, under one name and another, the
advocates of free trade march, year after year,
to certain destruction extort a compliment for
their courage if they fall to obtain one for their

The failure of experience to improve or con

their fatal results reminds me ot a small boy

gravestones In the Peekskill churchyard.
A LITTLE ILLUSTRATION.
Forgetting the fate of his companions, who
lay under the sod, he was serenely eating green
apples and singing "Nearer, My God. to Thee."
But now that it Is for us to administer affairs,
the needs of the country demand that the pro
tection of our industries shill be supplemented
by every effort to find for their surplus a
market The consistent policy of tho Republi
can ad ministration for a quarter of a century
has not only advanced and maintained wages,
bnt promoted productiveness, invention, skill,
ingenuity and good workmanship, so that our
output is beyond our home needs and must
compete in foreign markets with the manufact
ures of the Old World.
The most interesting part of tho great inter
national exhibition at Baristo an American
are the palaces, erected bv the South American
Republics, and their contents, absolutely un
known to us. Immigration and enterprise have
stimulated in these countries our neighbors
an industrial development in the last ten years
more rapid than our own. The whole of this
vast and inarvelously increasing trade now be
longs to Europe. Eight years aco an eminent
Republican statesman foresaw tbo advantages
of a closer alliance with these countries, and
endeavored to bring it about
BLAINE'S FOREIGN POLICY.
Now bo finds himself again in the office of
Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the President
who appointed him, a broad, comprehensive
and liberal-minded statesman, in full harmony
with his views. The Monroe doctrine, when
enumerated 70 years ago, became the common
faith of all political parties in this country.
The danger then was that the young and weak
nationalities which asserted their independence
might fall under the domination of European
and monarchical powers, and the United States
Government said in emphatic language that it
would never permit European Governments to
overthrow these republics and gain a foothold
upon these continents.
But the rapid and peaceful evolution in the
material conditions for half a century have
gn en a larger scope and grander meaning to
the famous doctrine of Monroe. It will find
expression in the congress which our adminis
tration has invited to meet next month at
Washington, In which will be represented the
republicof Noith and South America. It will
be an initial movement toward a permanent po
litical friendship and the closestcommercial al
lianco among all countries on the Western
There are two principles of the Republican
creed which the party will neither surrender
nor compromise nor abate. It will march with
them as serenely to defeat as to victory, know
ing that truth is eternal and in the end will
prevail. These two principles are the
INTEGRITY OP THE BALLOT
and the purity of the American home. Un
holy combinations in which vast pecuniary in
terests insult the equal protection of the law
granted to all legitimate pursuits by throwing
their power and their money into the scale of
one party or the -other will, in top end, snecumb
to the rising and resistless tide of publio hon
esty and virtue. The party which went cheer
fully and repeatedly to disaster and finally ex
tricated slavery, which under all discourage
ments and horrors, successfully fought the re
bellion and saved the nation, and which upon
the untried fields of reconstruction bnilt this
magnificent, expansive and unequalcd new
Republic will not cease agitation and reasser
tion and effort until the ballot box secures the
honest expression of the popular will, and the
liquor traffic is placed under proper control.
Had thelaws prepared and presented by the
Republican party in relation to high license
been placed upon the statute book of our State
one-third of the saloons would have been al
ready closed, thousands of wrecked homes
would have been repaired, and other thousands
of young men would have been saved. The
burden of taxation, resting upon farm and
homestead and business would have been
lightened and millions of dollars would have
been flowing into the State Treasury.
Tho truism that tho ballot is the safeguard
of liberty has a larger meaning not often discussed-
Ours is a Government by majorities.
We have no other means of ascertaining pub
lic opinion, and obeying its will The educa
tion of -our people is to accept the verdict and
arcordingly acquiesce, bnt if the verdict of the
majority is tainted with fraud then our scheme
ot Government has failed and there is nothing
but anarchy to replace it
The triumphant and confident majority, re
peatedly cheated out ot its rights, is a danger
too appalling to contemplate. It is the duty of
Congress, as well as the State, to see that this
momentous question, which cannot be obscured
by epithet or party shibboleths, shall be so set
tled that the count is beyond dispute, tho voter
free from intimidation and the safeguards
thrown about him which shall place his vote
beyond the reach of threat or purchase.
The Republican party emphatically reaffirms
its previous declarations upon the question of
evil service reform, and the laws which are
upon the statute book on this subject will be
carried out in their letter and spirit by the
THE NEW ADMINISTRATION.
Six months hare elapsed since we elected to
the Presidency Benjamin Harrison. Ho came
into power under difficulties which have not
attended any other Republican administration
since Lincoln. His Renublican predecessors
found the national house furnished with mod

was their preservation and enlargement But
General Harrison found his filled with a curi

senses, is a happy harbinger of a new navy,

HIS FAYOEITE HOBBY.
Hon. Chnnncey P. Black Discusses Demo
cratic Principles and Points Oat tbo
Best Way to Meet tho Assaults
of Partr Enemies.
rerECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DlSrATCII.l
New York, September 25. The Hon.
Chauncey F. Black, of Pennsylvania, Presi
dent of the National Association of Demo
cratic Clubs, addressed the Harlem Demo
cratic Club at the One Hundred and Twenty-fifth
Street Clubhouse to-night on "The
History, Principles and Organization of the
Democratic Party." The main points oi
the address were as follows:
First, Governor Black spoke of tho time
honored birth of the Democratic party over a
century ago. He said that the fathers of the
Republic are also tho fathers of Democracy;
that other parties may come and go, but the
Democratic party is here so long as the Repub
lic shall last Ho continued: "It is founded
on tho axiomatic principles of political science.
It adopts tho doctrines of Jefferson that
it is a wise and frugal government that shall
restrain men from Injuring one another, which
shall leave them otherwise free to regulate
their own pursuits of industry and improve
ment and which shall not take from the
month of labor the bread it earns.
So long as an enemy of
home rule and republican principles
remains, so long the Democratic party must
stand eternal guard. No other party has sur
vived the century of its birth. Governor Black
traced the progress of Hamilton's ideas of
subsidies, pillage and tyranny, as they appear
from time to time in other par
ties, particularly In the Republican
party of to-day, and pictured the
progress of jobbery and plunder under forms
of law as practiced by the Republican party In
the interest of monopolies and rings, and which
now, a quarter of a century after the war has
closed, demands tbo continuance of war taxes
to maintain the infamous corruption of
Governor Black closed with an earnest ad
vocacy of the system of Democratlo societies
as the best method of meeting the assaults of
the enemy of the Republic He said he had
been accused of riding this idea as a hobby. But
he said: "If any blisters are to be raised
by this hobby riding, I am the man who Is to sit
on them. There are four shoulders to this
hone, and I Invito you all to get up and ride
with me. and I promise that yon shall ride to
prompt and certain victory." N
A REVISED TARIFF.
Massachusetts Republicans Are Ready for a
Little Modification No Prohibi
tion in Theirs Tho Ticket
Placed In the Field.
Boston, September 25. The Massachu
setts Republican Convention assembled here
to-day, all of the prominent politicians of
the party in the State being present. The
platform congratulates the country upon
the restoration of the Republican party to
power; commends the wise and prudent con
duct of the Treasury Department; rejoices
in the restoration of dignity and vigor to
the conduct of onr foreign affairs; congratu
lates the President upon the practical wis
dom and honest purpose with which he has
dealt with the complicated question of ap
pointments; commends the presentcivil serv
ice policy and pledges the support of the Re
publicans of Massachusetts in all efforts to
root out the evil of patronage from politics;
looks to Congress to defend a sound cur
rency and resist an increase in the present
silver coinage and also to bring about a re
duction of the surplus revenue.
A feature of the document is a request to
the Representatives and Senators from
Massachusetts to support a thorough and
equitable revision of the tariff, so as to
adapt the protection which it affords to
changed business conditions, affecting New
England industries in common with those
of the rest of the country. It also demands
a national election law, favors a liberal
policy toward the soldiers and sailors, asks
for aid for our steamship lines and favors an
increase of the navy. The late election is
held to have settled, the prohibition question
in the negative.
A formal ballot was then taken to select
a candidate for Governor. The vote stood:
Whole number of votes, 1,428; necessary
for a choice, 715; J. Q. A. Brackett, 743; W.
W. Crnpo, C73; John D. Long, 1; F. H.
Capen, 9; Haile, 1. Brackett was declared
nominated, and the ticket was completed
with but little opposition.

made a brief conservative address, not com
mitted fully to the nomination of a State
ticket, but advised if nominations were
made that they choose such men as would

and at least the respect of the Democrats.
He was followed by General Chalmers, who
denounced the Democratic party, State and
national, in unmeasured terms, and advo
cated the nomination ot a State ticket
There was a large sentiment in the con
vention opposed to any nominations being
made, but when it came to a vote, the re
sult showed 159 in favor and 95 opposed to a
ticket being placed in the field. The fol
lowing is the ticket: James R. Chalmers
for Governor; James D, Lynch (white), pt

The Standard Oil Company seeks to re
strain farmers who leased to it from selling
even rights of way to railroads. It con
tends that its oil leases, for 51 and upward,
give it absolute control of every leasing
farmer's lands for everything except farm

must suffer with Ohio and Indiana.
rsrECIAL TEXrOIULM TO THE PISFATCn.1
Findlay, O., September 25. All North
western Ohio (in fact everywhere in the
State where oil and gas leases on farm
lands have been taken by the Standard Oil
Company and its corporations, with a view
of developing the oil and gas resources) is
in a condition of great alarm over an in
junction suit which the Standard Oil Com
pany has brought in the courts in this
county against the Toledo, Findlay and
Springfield Railroad, now being built from
Toledo to Springfield, to restrain the rail
road people from passing with their track
over lands on which the Standard holds oil
and gas leases. The railroad company had
bought the right of way for its tracks from
the farmers, and was proceeding with its
line when the Standard stopped everything
by filing an injunction, in which it is
claimed that, in all contracts, the leased
lands were subject only to farming pur
poses. IT'S GOBBLE, OB NOTHING.
The Standard people assume, and will so
argue in court, that when a farmer leases
them bis land for oil and gas purposes, he
by that act relinquishes all control of his
property, except for agricultural uses; that
he cannot even lay out a race track upon
it for his own use, or divide it into town
lots, without first obtaining the consent of
the oil company; that the farmer has no
rights whatever in, on or about the prem
ises, only such as pertain to purely agri
cultural pursuits that he cannot construct
a roadway or drain a swamp upon his own
lands without infringing upon the rights
which the Standard Company obtained
when it secured an oil and gas lease upon
his premises; in short, the Standard Oil

over 1,000,000 able-bodied Wongs at home

It was agreed that the meeting should, be

A PREVIOUS ENGAGEMENT
Is All That Prevented Major Warner Ac
cepting the Vacant Pension Chair
Ills Formal Letter Declining
the Proffered Honor.
Deer Park, September 25. Major Will
iam Warner, of Missouri, has finally de
clined to accept the office of Commissioner
of Pensions, which was tendered him by
the President The following letter was
written at the date given, but at the urgent
solicitation ot the President, Major Warner
agreed to withdraw It and reconsider his
determination. To-day, however, after con
sultation with his business partners, he tele
graphs that he must adhere to his original
declination, and his letter is therefore made
public as follows:
Washington, September 1ft, 1B39.
Bin After due deliberation, I am compelled
to decline the appointment of Commissioner
of Pensions. I appreciate the great compli
ment paid me by the tender of tbo Commls
sionership, and did not business engagements,
which I have no right to break, forbid it no
personal sacrifico would prevent my accept
ance. I should esteem it a high honor to be
Commissioner of Pensions under your adminis
tration, and aid as best I could In carrying out
yonrwise and liberal policy toward the old
soldiers and sailors entitlod to pensions under
existing laws, and to co-operate with you in
securing the necessary additional legislation
for the nation's defenders. Feeling, as I
do, a deep Interest In the proper and liberal
administration of the pension laws, it is with
the slncerest regret that I mako this declara
tion, especially alter the full and frank con
versation I had with you and tho Honorable
Secretary of ths Interior on Saturday last, re
assuring me, as It did, that our comrades have
no truer or wanner friends. Thanking you for
the confidence expressed in me by your offer,
and again expressing my deep regret that I am
compelled by what I esteem bigb duties to
others than myself to decline the office. 1 beg
leave to snbscrlbe myself sincerely your
friend, William Warner.
It is possible President Harrison may
make another selection for Commissioner
while at Deer Park, but if he does, the an
nouncement will probably not be made pub
lic until after his return to Washington.

Says Longfellow Could
Not Have Written.
SPECIAL TILIQUAK TO TUB DISPATCUl
Boston, September 25. Citizen George
Francis Train is aa happy in jail as upon
the stump, and he vows he will not volun
tarily abandon his pleasant quarters at the.
Charlestown jail. He said this morning:
"I'm so pleased with this 12-foot square,
white-walled palace that I will never leave
it unless I'm forced out of it; but if I ever
get free, I'm going to accept one of the sev
eral offers I have received from the dime
museum managers of this city and Provi
dence and New York. I've written a poem
describing my cell. It would have taken
Longfellow or Holmes a whole day to write
an equally good poem, but I wrote it in less
than an hour. You see what the Btyle is:
No pegs or shelves or nailing on white
To hang or put your clothes;
And yet I dreamt of marble halls,
Saratoga and Newport balls.
I dreamt and slept all night as sound
As bloodhounds do In. mongrel pound.
No maniacs' yells are there;
As In the Tombs, they put the lunatics
"I, George Francis Train, did that, and I
am the person who used to work in a Cam
bridge grocery store and roll barrels of
nour through the back door of SmMhtV
Mr. Train passed the greater pari of the
morning in reading his poems" to the
newspaper men who called npon him. He
is writing lines to the memory of "My
Friend, Wilkie Collins." He also showed
Jiis visitors how he used to spar in his
younger days. He expresses his disgust for
the Boston papers by carpeting the floor of
his cell with them. "The Boston papers
don't report my lectures fully enough,"
was his complaint.

TWO BOLD DEEDS IN ONE, BIGHT.
Almost Identical Methods of Distinct Parties,
THE MAIL AND EIPRESS CARS RIFLED.
Ko Attention Is raid to Passengers Under the Hew
Train robbing is being reduced to an ex
act science. Within six hours two Southern
trains, some hundreds of miles apart, were
rifled in an almost exactly similar manner.
The express and mail cars were the only
ones disturbed. Scarcely an attempt at re
sistance was made in either case.
Mobile, Ala., September 25. The Mo
bile and Ohio south-bound mail and pas
senger train was held np at 310 this morn
ing by train robbers at Bnckatunna, Miss.,
a station 70 miles north of Mobile. The
train was due here at 6 A. M. Just before
the train left Bnckatunna two men mounted
behind the tender of the train, and climb
ing over, covered Engineer Jack Therrel
and Fireman Thomas Hust with their re
volvers. The robbers were disguised with red ban
danna handkerchiefs over the lower part of
their faces. The leader ordered the engin
eer to pull out and to stop at the bridge two
miles below Bnckatunna, and to place the
train so that the express and mail car should
be on the further side of the bridge from
the rest of the train, the bridge being a tres
tle over a deep creek.
A VERY POSITIVE ORDER,
"You obey instructions, or it is death,"
he said. The engineer looked down the bar
rel of the pistol and slowly pulled the lever.
The train mn rapidly down to the spot in
dicated, and the engineer put the train just
where the man with the pistol wanted it
Then there appeared a third robber, dis
guised like the other two. These three
made the engineer and fireman come with
them to the express car and the engineer
had to call out to Expressman J. W. Dun
ning to open the door of the car.
The wooden door was already open, bnt
the iron-barred door was closed and locked.
Dunning was turned with his back to the
door and when he turned round he looked
down the muzzles of three revolvers. The
command was given and Dunning opened
the barred door and the chief robber
jumped in, the other two remaining outside
to guard the engineer and fireman.
The leader made the messenger dump the
contents of the safe into a canvass sack,
but noticing that he was not closely
watched, Dunning shoved some of the
money aside, so that about $1,000 was
hidden, the robbers getting $2,700. All this
money belonged to the Mobile and Ohio
Railroad Company. Alongside the express
car door was a pile of $70,000 Government
money en route to Florida, which the
robbers failed to notice.
BATHER COOL HANDS.
Then the robbers made the expressman
eet out of the carand'gc- with them to the,
suspected mat roDoery was going on, anat
tried to set into the baggage car with a
number of registered packages of mail.
Just as he stepped to the end door of the
car he saw that the robbers had intercepted
him. The robber leader, supposed to be
Bunch, faced him, pistol in hand, and find
ing Bell's arms full of packages, said:
''Dump those here on my left arm."
There were 24 packages in all, and Bell
dumped them as requested. The robber
made Bell band him a registered pouch, and
ordered the agent to open it, but Bell hod
no key. so the robber carried the pouch off
with him. The pouch was made up at
Meridian, and the contents and value are
unknown. Just then Billy Scholcs. the
conductor, who had been trying to find ont
the trouble, and had armed himself with a
Winchester, came out of the rear of the
train, waved his lantern and shouted:
"What's the matter?"
A PLEASANT INVITATION.
The robbers fired two shots at him, cry
ing ont: "Come np here and you'll see
what's tho matter."
The engineer told the robber to let up on
shooting, as the train hands would open fire
and be shooting their own men. There was
no more shooting and the train was ordered
to pull out at once, which it did, the robbers
disappearing in the undergrowth on the
west side of the track. They pulled down
to Citronelle and met the accommodation
train, which was sent back to the scene of
the robbery with detectives and an armed
The leader of the robbers is a man six feet
high, of about 170 pounds weight, dressed in
common clothing and a slouch hat. His as
sistants wore common clothing and nothing
to distinguish them. When (he handker

months ago. At that time it was believed
Lhe was organizing a gang to hold up some
train, and the Mobile and Ubio Company,
anticipating an attack, armed all its train
hands with Winchester rifles. This was
made public, and was doubtless what the
robber referred to this morning, as he said
during the progress ot robbing the mail car:

IT IS ALL THE FASHION.
Five Bold Brigands Secure 810,000 and
Three Bacs of Silver.
Fort Worth, Tex., September 25. A
few minutes before 10 o'cIock last night, as
the north-bound Santa Fe train was pulling
out of Crowley, ten miles south of this city,
three men boarded the train 'and two others
jumped on the locomotive. The two on the
engine placed pistols to the heads of Engi
neer Monohan and Fireman Crager, and
told them to pull out and stop when told.
When two miles from Crowley, the engineer
was ordered to stop. Then the robbers cut
the engine, baggage, mail and express cars
from the rest of the train, and made Mono
han 'pull half a mile further.
A short, fleshy xounS man and a dark
mustached, burly looking fellow then got
into the express car and ordered the mes
senger to show them the money. Be pointed
to three bags of Mexican silver. One of the
men ripped open a sack and shoveled the
silver out of the door, while the other one
threw out the other sacks. They took two
packages said to contain $5,000 each, but
overlooked three or four money packages
for Fort Worth. The short man finally
ordered those with him to let the two full
sacks alone- Tho engineer was then made
to couple up and move. The robbers started
in a westerly direction. The train reached
here at midnight, and a powe of 20
started in pursuit at once.

St. Loots, September 25. There are a
number of ways of selling unprofitable
stocks, but the hip-pocket process is the
latest tits originator is Otto F. Oberbeck,
manager of the National Droggtit, and the'
purchaser is Mr. J. Cliff Richardson, who
is well known as a wholesale druggist, and
who was until the fire of tlst New Year's
Day the manager of the big wholesale drug
house known as the Richardson Drug Com
pany. J. O. & James Rie&ardson, Jr., sold
their stock in ihe National Drvggit ton
syndicate which is represented by Manning
Tredway,,of the Qreely-Burnham Grocer
Company, and the change of ownership
threw Oberbeck ont of the office of manager (
and president of the company. He was the
owner of 25 shares of the company's stock,
and finding that the control of the paper
had been turned over to the Tredway Com
pany, with which he was not on good terras,
he concluded to make Mr. Richardson pur
chase his stock, so he visited the office of
the Richardson-Taylor Drug Company this
afternoon in company with, a friend named
.Hoagland. The irate manager became ex
'cited and began to make demands.
"I want .you to give me $750 for my
stock," he said.
"Why," said Mr. Eiehardsoa, "yon of
fered it to me a few days ago for $20 a share,
and said you would nos buy mine because
yon did not consider the stock in the com
pany -worth a cent. X can sell tills stock for
you to the parties who bought mine. Leave
it with me, I will sell it"
Oberbeck consulted Hoagland, and then
returning to Mr. Richardson's desk, said:
"Write me out a check for $500 now and I
will give yon the stock, 1 want it now
do you understand? I will not put np
with this any longer. Give me the check
do you hear ? Or you will force me to use
Oberbeck threw his hand back to his
pistolpocket and held it on the buti of a
revolver. Hoagland was armed, too, and.
he stood ready to defend Oberbeck in case
of trouble. Dr. Taylor, of the Richardson
Taylor Company, stood by. Mr. Richard
son quietly turned to his brother and said;
"Jim, write him a check for $500."
Oberbeck maintained his belligerent at
titude until the check was written. Then
he signed the stock, and Dr. Taylor was
witness to the signature. The check was
handed to Oberbeck and he started ont of
the office, but he turned and said:
"Cliff, it is good for you that von bought
that stock; if yon hadn't I would have shot
