[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT. ]
NEW YORK, August 30.
The tendency of the New York journalist ls
to make a big sensation out of every Item of
oews which will bear working up to the point
of startling head lines. Charleston, unfor?
tunately, has been made to. suffer In reputa?
tion, more than she deserves, for the cases of
yellow fever which have appeared there. The
a'ght editors ol the New York papers have
been assisted in their efforts to get up a panic
about Charleston by >e malicious public and
private dispatches sent here from Wilmington,
when these dispatches were representing that
our devoted city was being ravaged lrlghtfully
by the fever, and that the facts were being
?unpressed by the health authorities, you can i
hardly blame the New York newspaper men
for making the most of the story. They can?
not all be supposed to know the motives
"which actuate some rival cities la misrepre?
senting their neighbors.
The quarantine officers have taken vigorous
measures to prevent the introduction of the
fever into this port. It is well for all travel?
lers coming North to know that for the pres?
ent Southern steamers sailing from any of the
ports where the fever i9 believed to exist
will be detained at quarantine in the lower
bay of New York for several days. The South
?Carolina is still at quarantine, though she ar?
ty rived on Saturday. The passengers were al
T lowed to come up yesterday. The Manhattan
arrived off the harbor on Tuesday night. She
was boarded from the hospital ships Illinois,
and ordered to the lower quarantine, notwith?
standing she showed Dr. Lobby's clean bill of
health. The passengers will be allowed to
come up to the city on Thursday morning, but
the vessel, I understand, will be required to
discharge her cargo at Bed Hook, the lower
.sd of Brooklyn.
The admonitions ol the press to Dr. Camo?
chan,about guarding against the expected arri
?al of the Asiatic cholera, hasj probably Indue
ed that official to be unusually severe to ves
?els from all places where contagious diseases
exist Until the dally bulletins from Charles?
ton report the absolute disappearance of the
fever, therefore, the steamers will be expected
to sojourn for a few days, on every trip, tn the
lower bay. Captain Tom Lockwood, with a
Tiew to improve each shining hour, bas taken
on board to-day a qucjtlty of pigments with
? which he proposes to paint up the Adger dur?
ing the time he has to lay off in quarantine on
the next trip.
We are Just now going through a course of
the most harrowing and blood-curdling sensa?
tions, and the newsboys are happy. We have
more steamboat explosions and railroad
smash-ups from abroad, and at home a "mvs
tory.-' Since poor Mr. Nathan was murdered.
In Twenty-third street, by some person or per
sons unknown, nothing so dark and terrible
has happened in our mid 1 as the tragedy of
the body in the trunk. It recalls to the minds
of the older inhabitants the Colt and Adams
affair of thirty years ago. Colt (a brother of
the pistol manufacturer) murdered Adams,
and boxing up his remains endeavored to get
them out of sight by shipping them to another
?art of the country. So this fiend. "Dr."
osenzwelg, tried to dispose of the body of the
?roung lady whom he had killed bv stuffing lt
nto a trunk and checking lt to Chicago via
the Hudson River Railroad.
The discovery of another murder of the
same character, by the notorious Madame Yan
Buskirk, of Bleeker street, bas opened up a
^discussion upon the terrible secret crime which
. jTet&iks abroad throughout the North, not mere?
ly through the wickedness of so-called physi?
cians, but with the concurrence of thousands
of respectable men and women who are inte?
rested. The South, I am glad and proud to
believe, is almost wholly free from this crime;
and you, who know ?o little about it, would be
astounded If you really had revealed to you
the extent to which lt exists at the North. In
Boston, and Indeed throughout the New Eng
land States, the practice of ante-natal murder
ls so common, even among people ol social
position and members of the churches, that lt
is talked about Just as freely as any other
every-day topic. Doubtless thousands of peo?
ple In the North look upon lt as no
crime whatever, while others regard
it as merely venal-certainly not as wrong as
drunkenness or gaming. That I am not wild
in my assertion?, I refer to the letter address?
ed to his Dock by the Episcopal Bishop Cox, o?
Western New York, two years ago, on the
subject. The Bishop said that the crime exist?
ed to a frightful degree among his best people,
and he could keep silent no longer. Here is a
Add for the reforming energies of such pious
persons as General 0. 0. Howard. Senator
Harlan, Senator Wilson, and vice-President
Colfax, who find so much to torture their loyal
hearts In the wickedness which abounds in
the South. They rall at their neighbors, while
a cancer is at the very core of society in their
The succession of heavy rains which have
visited this locality has left the city In a very
uncleanly condition, and lt ls evident that if
the cholera were suddenly to make a lodge?
ment In some of our back slums the mortality
would be dreadful. Everybody ls scolding
abou'. the condition of Washington and Fulton
markets and their neighborhoods. A visit to
either would give an observer the most melan?
choly forebodings of the future. The Btreets
?round are filled with stagnant puddles,
and the gutters reek with decaying vegeta?
ble?. The markets Inside actually nave the
odor of putrefaction when the weather is
hot It ls amazing that the officiels of
this great and wealthy city have permitted
these nuisances to exist The good adminis?
tration of government, so conspicuous in other
departments, is singularly wanting in the
health board. One would suppose that with
all the money at the command of our magis?
trates, they would make model markets for
New York. It would be a blessing if a fire
-should break out in the rookeries on the North
Biver, in the neighborhood of Barclay street,
-and level them with the earth; and it ls a won?
der that they have escaped so long. The
authorities are moving at last, and we are
promised a sanitary re-olutlon. Nvu.
CRIME IX THE STATE.
A Shooting Affair In Union.
The Times says: "On Friday evening last,
.our town was somewhat excited upon the ar?
rival ol Mr. F. Wesson, who reported that he
had been shot by a man named Collins, form
?e?j from North Carolina, but well known lu
this county for the past two years as a ditcher.
From what we can learn, lt appears that Mr.
Wesson, who resides on tbe plantation ot Mr.
D. C. Gist, left this town for his home about ll
o'clock in the morning, accompanied by five or
six friends. On their way they met this man
Collins, and fell Into conversation with him.
Collins was under the influence of liquor, and
quite talkative. He told the party that he was
trying to get away from a parly who accused
him of having shot a wagoner the evening pre?
vious, near Webster's store. The party con?
cluded to return to town with him, but they
had not gone far when Collins made an ex?
cuse that ne wished to turn Into the woods for
a few minutes. Not returning as expected
they went in pursuit, Mr. Wesson taking the
-road to town. He came in sight ol Collins just
below the Episcopal Church. Finding that he
would be overtaken, fol lins turned into a lane,
supposing lt led Into the woods, but a lenee
too high for his horse to jump stopped his
progress, and he was compelled to alight.
Whether Collins or Weenoo fired first we can
sot learn, but both did fire, and Wesson was
wounded in the side, and Collins made his es?
cape. The ball was extracted lrom Wesson's
side by Dr. Thomson, and he is doing well.
We further learn that about two years ago
this man Collins and his father had a difficul?
ty with a man named McIntyre, In North Car?
olina, and was compelled to leave that State.
On Friday last, McIntyre, and a man named
Littlejohn, both having wagons, camped near
Webster's store, and while Littlejohn waa cur?
rying his mules, some one fired on him, break
fg one of his arms and Injuring him badly In
leg. The two Collins were seen following
me wagons, and it ls supposed they shot Little
johu in mistak for McIntyre. The whole mat?
ter ls shrouded in mystery. The Collinses were
seen on Monday morning, on the Sparlanburg
road, above Gist's station. Colline's horse ls
FLORENCE IS COMMOTIOS.
Negro Civilities to a Detective-Large
Robbery and Several Parties Ar?
The numerous robberies which have been
perpetrated In the neighborhood ot" Florence
have at last roused Che losers to action. Several
months ago four or uve bags ol' colton were
stolen, and nothing was done to secure the
robbers. This was followed by other depreda?
tions on a smaller scale, which have at last
had the effect of stimulating the people to
measures with a view of protecting their own
and attempting to bring the robbers to justice.
Several days ago the residence of Mr. T. M.
Rogers, about seven miles from Florence, was
broken into and a large assortment of silver
plate, consisting ol several dozen of silver
spoons and forks, ladles, ?fcc, carried off. A
telegram was sent to Charleston for a detec?
tive, and Officer Hernandez was dis?
patched to the scene of action. He arrived
at Florence on Saturday, and accompanied by
Mr. Rogers and armed with a warrant from
Trial Justice Fludd, of Florence, proceeded to
the plantation of Mr. Rogers. One of the
robbers, named Louis James, was identified
by a peculiar track he made, owing to a de?
formity of one of his feet, on the night of the
robbery, and to him the officer first paid his
attentions. Louis, a black youth of about
fourteen summers, was found in a cornfield
about dark, and having been arrested was
taten to Mr. Rogers's house. On the way
thither some negro women discovered the
cortege and gave the alarm among the settle?
ments. Soon after this, two other suspected
negroes, named Patrick Adam and Agrippa
Jenkins, were arrested, and the officer,
accompanied by Mr. Rogers, and with the
four prisoners In cbarge, started lor
Florence, seven miles off. The alarm
given by the woman spread like wildfire, and
soon after leaving the plantation of Mr. R.. the
small cortege was encountered on the road by
about one hundred Infuriated colored people
of all ages and sexes, and armed with every
describable weapon. Halting the party, they
presented their muskets and threatened to
fire; but the small party were not to be over?
awed, and drawing their repeaters announced
that they were ready for business. This unex?
pected show of determination had its effect on
the rabble, and giving back a little, they al?
lowed the guard and prisoners to move on.
At intervals the shouts of the crowd along the
road told of the arrival of reinforcements to
the mob; but the guard and prisoners were
lortunately mounted, and pushing briskly for?
ward arrived at Florence with a large mob
whooping and yelling at their heels. The prison?
ers and guard stopped at the station and were
speedily surrounded by their late pursuers,
nore infuriated than ever. As their crowd
Increased, they began to grow more furious
ind threatening, and it is hard to say what
would have happened had not Trial Justice
Fludd Interposed, and by a short speech in a
neasure pacified the colored Ku-Klux. They
lld not disperse, however, until the train left,
ipon which the prisoners bad been placed by
i clever flank movement. The culprits ar
ived here yesterday morning, and were duly
odged in the Detective office. None of the
tolen property has been recovered, but
nough has been disclosed to show where lt is,
nd who were the thieves. The prisoners are
leid for examination under another warrant
rom Trial Justice Magrath.

THE TRUNK TRAGEDY.
IDENTIFICATION OF THE VICTIM-A
Father, Mother and Child Dead-Rosen?
zweig's Servant's Partial Confession
Miss Bowlsby's Seducer's Suicide-Dis?
coveries In the Murderer's Den.
The following particulars ot the Identifica?
tion of the body of Miss Alice Bowlsby. of Pat?
terson. New Jersey, as the corpse In the trunk,
and the suicide of her seducer, are from the
New York papers :
THE STORY OF THE IDENTIFICATION*
of the murdered girl is r. singular one. and
exemplifies the very small chances ol the dis?
covery of a great crim'i. Among the many
who visited the Morgue to see the body, was
Dr. Theodore G. Kinne, of Paterson, New Jer?
sey. The doctor looked at the body, and turn?
ing to Warden Brennan, who accompanied him
to the Morgue, ft^d : "I am sure I know whose
body that is. It is the body of Alice Bowlsby,
a girl I have known, and who resides In Pat?
erson." H? recognized it from a vaccination
scar on the left arm below the elbow, u most
unusual circumstance, and which scar he
knew wa? on Miss Bowlsbv's arm in precisely
the same place as it appeared on the body in
On Wednesday evening Dr. Joseph M. Par?
ker, dentist, ot Paterson, with Dr. Kinne
and Captain Cameron, proceeded to the
Morgue. The body of the girl had been boxed
up in the rude coffin for shipment lo Potter's
Field, where lt would have been interred in a
separate pauper's grave. Warden Brennan
took the body out of the coffin and Invited
Dr. Parker to examine it. Dr. Parker no
sooner looked Into the mouth and examined
the teeth than he exclaimed, "My God. this is
Alice !" When he grew sufficiently calm lo
explain, he said that lrom his own work ns
dentist he could swear it was her body. He
said lt was he who extracted the molar teeth
that were gone, and directed the attention ol
Warden Brennan to a scar on the right Jaw,
caused by an ulcerated tooth, and also to the
filling of two upper teeth In the left jaw. This
filling, which the doctor took out, he slated he
hud put in, and could swear to.
ANOTHER LINE IN THE CHAIN.
Inspector Walling at once became convinc?
ed that the identification was a real one.
These facts are known in regard to Alice
Bowlsby: That she was the daughter ot re?
spectable persons residing at No. 42 Water
street, Paterson, New Jersey; that she bad
been on a visit to an aunt in Newark, and left
her aunt's residence a week ago Wednesday
morning, taking the quarter-past 9 o'clock
train, and slating that she was going home;
and last, that she never went home, but that
coming to New York City all trace of ber was
lost, until on Saturday her body was found In
the fatal trunk. Drs. Parker and Klnne were
questioned as to the dress usually worn by
Miss Bowlsby. and among other articles they
described a blue silk scarf, which she frequent?
ly wore. The Inspector, calling to bia assist?
ance Captain Cameron and Sergeant Randall,
proceeded to the Rosenzweig mansion and
commenced a third and thorough search of
every hole and corner In the place, and at
length found in a stove a blue silk scarf, which
Drs. Parker and Kinne identified to the best of
their belief as the one worn by Miss Bowlsby.
Then they came to the rear basement, and In
the tub at which the servant g'rl Jane John?
son was washing on Monday, was a lot of wet
clothes. The inspector took each piece out
separately and examined lt carefully. Atlast
he came to a plain hemmed white lawn hand?
kerchief; his keen eye noticed some indistinct
marks In the right hand corner; he brought it
to the window, held lt up and gave a shout of
exultation, for there, plain and tangible,
though slightly blurred, were the tell-tale let?
ters, the convicting link in the chain of evi?
dence against the murderer-"A. A. Bowlsby."
BREAE1NO THE NEWS.
About 7 A. M. Thursday the news of the
Identification of Miss Bowlsby's remains was
broken to her widowed mother at Paterson by
Drs. Parker and Kinne, who, on the evening
preceding, bad identified the body at the
Morgue. The grief ol the mother and younger
sisters was too terrible tor words to express.
Eight days previously Alice had left the home
ot her aunt, Mrs. Elizabeth L. Williams, in
Newark, to return to her mother's house in
Paterson. Sue did not arrive home on the
day which a letter written to her mother by
her had fixed, and inquiries were sent lo New?
ark for information ot her. Word was return?
ed that she had left Mrs. Wllliams's house,
where she had been staying about three weeks,
add ought to have arrived home the same day.
Then the search for the missing girl com?
menced. Her uncle. Mr. Charles E. Sandford,
of Paterson; her cousins, Henry Sandford
and John Williams, of Newark, and Dr.
Kiune, the family physician, gave nearly
all their time for several days to en?
deavors to trace her. Henry Sanford, on vis?
iting the Morgue, thought he st-cognized the
body of the then unknown murdered girl, and
it was subsequently identified positively by
Drs. Parker and Kinne. Until Thursday morn?
ing, however, neither Mr. Sanford nor the
doctors bad hinted their suspicions regarding
the body at the Morgue to the bereaved motli?
er. Mrs. Bowlsby, with her three daughters,
worked at dressmaking, Alice having been
employed recently in an establishment at No.
163 Main street, over the office of Drs. Parker
and Kinne. Alice and her sisters were highly
esteemed, and not only Alice's mother, but all
ber acquaintances, believed her to be strictly
WHO WAS THE BETRAYER?
In answer to inquires made Thursday morn?
ing, the friends ot the family state that they
could not say who was the seducer of Alice;
they suspected a young man whose name
would not be given until the Inquest should be
held. Dr. Parker was reluctant to give any
Information except that the murdered girl was
well known to him as a pure, high-minded girl
whom he would never have suspected under
any circumstances. He thought he could Iden?
tify the man who was responsible for her coa?
lition when she went to Dr. Rosenzweig's; but
tie believed that she had gone there alone, and
that the man whom he suspected had nothing
Lo do with the murder. The doctor exhibited
i photograph of the deceased, a tall, well-form?
ed and intelligent looking blonde, with bright,
aughing eyes, full lips and smiling face. It
.va-* learned by the statements of Mrs. Williams,
}f Newark, that Walter F. Conklin had been
rery much attached to the young woman, and
lad visited her at Mrs. Willlams's house in
Newark three days before Alice left for New
fork. Mrs. Williams did not hesitate to say
hat he was responsible for Alice's misfortune.
SUICIDE OF CONKLIN.
At 1 o'clock an event occurred in which all
he city were convinced that Mrs. Wiliiams's
mpposltion was correct. At that hour Conk
in committed suicide In Dales's silk mill,
where he was employed. A large crowd
gathered Immediately uround the building.
iud within an hour the news was spread
through Paterson. Conklin arrived at the mill
;arly yesterday morning, looking pale and ner?
vous. He remained at his desk during the
orenoon, conversing but little, and when spo?
ken to concerning the absorbing sensation
mused by the reports in the morning papers,
'poke of lt as a matter ot no consequence to
lim. At uoon he did not go to dinner accord
ng to his custom. Whiie the other clerks were I
it dinner one of the men employed In the mill i
leard a pistol shot. He ran immediately :
to the office, and lound no one. but going into
the large fire-proof room, where the most val
lable silks are stored, on the floor he found
Honklin's prostrate form. Blood was flowing j
rom a wound back of the left ear, where the
juliet entered. A revolver was found on the :
loor beside him. When the physicians arriv- :
;d they found that the wound was lata!, the
Mil having lodged in the temple. Within half 1
tn hour he was dead. Coroner Butterworth 1
vas immediately summoned, and viewed the ]
jody. In one of the pockets was lound the '
ollow'ng note, In Couklin's handwriting : 1
?.I have long had a morbid idea of the worlli
essnc.-s of life, and now to be obliged to tes
ify in this affair and cause unpleasantness in ,
ny family, is more than life is worth.
"Good-bye, dear father, mother, brother and <
sister. WALT." I
In his pocket a card was lound, on which I
was written, la his own hand, "li? E. 24th '
About Miss Bowlsby's movements otter she i
eft Mrs. Willlams's house In Newark, but little <
jan be learned. Her mother, who went to ?
Sewark with her, returned home, having left i
Alice only money enouzh to pay her fare from
Newark to Paterson. When she left Mrs. WU
liam's house at 9 o'clock on Wednesday last,
she had only eighty cents. She could not.
therefore, have paid Rosenzweig the amount
which he would be likely to have demanded.
FACTS AND INCIDENTS.
On Monday, the 21st ult., Miss Bowlsby was
met, In company with another Paterson
woman, by Wm. J. Healey, ol 82 Main street,
Paterson. Mr. Healey states that he met
Alice twice In Broadway, near St. Paul's
Cnurch. The woman who accompanied her
he knew, but cannot remember her name.
Conklln ls known to have cone to New York
on the fatal Saturday, returning in the evening.
His father ls one of the owners of the Dale
Silk Mtll. where Conklln was employed,
and the latter drew a good salary as book?
On Wednesday evening, while Drs. Parker
and Kinne were looking at the remains of
Alice In New York, Mrs Bowlsby and young
Conklln were conversing about her In Pater?
son. Conklln called to Inquire if anything had
been heard from her, and appeared to be con?
cerned for her safety. Mrs. Bowlsby, who was
almost crazed with alarm for her daughter's
?a(etv, suggested that the body found In the
trunk might be hers. Conklln said, "Oh, no;
that couldn't be Alice."
Conklin was about twenty years of age. He
had visited Miss Bowlsby for over two years,
but had not confined his attentions exclusively
to her. He visited Europe last year, but re?
turned in September. lesumlng upon his re?
turn his Intimacy with Miss Bowl9by. He was
a yoing man of good appearance, tall and
well proportioned, and dressed with scrupu?
lous neatness. In the mill where he worked
no one knew of his acqualntaece with Alice
Bowlsby, and with the sad news of the suicide
came the first Intimation to Mr. Conklin. Sr..
of his son's intimacy with lite murdered
CONFESSION OF ROSENZWEIG'S SERVANT.
The woman, Jane Johnson, servant at the
house of Rosenzweig, told the following story
to Warden Brennan, in a cell at the Eighteenth
Precinct Police station last evening, alter
viewing the clothing found in the trunk, and
hearing a description of the body lt had
contained: "On last Wednesday afternoon a
young lady, like the one you have described,
entered Dr. Rosenzweig's house, at No. 687
Second avenue, hy the parlor door. After en
terlng the door she was immediately taken up
stairs by the doctor, and taken into his private
room. The doctor came into the house, on
the run, at the basement door, about two
minutes before tbe yoong lady came Into the
parlor door. He walked to the kitchen door
and looked in at me-something very unusual
for him to do. To the very best of my opinion
he closed the kitchen door after looking at me.
When he left. I opened the door easy, and
looked after him. I listened, and ran up to
the parlor floor, when I saw the young girl
going up to the second floor. I took no more
notice of that affair on that day; but I listen?
ed to Fee If I could hear her going out, which
I failed In doing. The same afternoon I asked
Rosie, the doctor's daughter, who that ladv
was that went up stairs. Rosie replied that
she was a patient who wanted to see her father.
I again asked Rosie, on the following day,
il that lady was In the house yet. She answer?
ed, "Oh. no; her friends took her awav last
night." I said, "How could she go in all that
rain, when you told me she was so very sick ?"
Rosie said, "They had a nice carriage and
wrapped her np so she could not take cold." I
thought all that story was true until this ex?
citement took place. After the lady came to
the bouse. Rosie went immediately up stairs
and remained there forsome time; then she
returned to the kitchen. In the evening. Mrs.
Rosenzweig called to me from up stairs to
make a cup of tea, and to have Rosie bring lt
up to her; I thought this very queer, as I al?
ways took Mrs. Rosenzweig's meals to her.
On Saturday morning Mrs. Rosenzweig came
to me and said that she wished me to hurrv
up with the kitchen work, so that I
could take the children out riding; I got
through the work about 12 o'clock and left the
house with Rosie and the two children. It
waa a great Dleasnre to me to go out In the
air, lt was so rarely that Mrs. Rosenzweig
allowed me to leave the house. I remained
away about one hour and a half. This ls all I
remember of the circumstances connected
with the girl being In the house. I recognize
thecomtorter (quilt,) striped on one side, with
large figures, which was found In the trunk,
as one that was used upon Mr. Rosenzweig's
bed. The chemise found In the trunk I never
saw before; It probably belonged to the young
lady; I recognize the diaper found lu the
trunk as one belonging to Mrs. Rosenzweig's
baby. I never saw the" trunk before.

THE OLD WORLD'S NEWS.
The Diplomatic Conference.
LONDON*, September 2.
The conferences at Gasteln were to confirm
an agreemect between Austria and Prussia on
some important principles of policy. The de?
tails of the agreement were written down on
both sides, and the two drafts compared and
adjusted, and are in the nature of a treaty,
therefore, but not of a formal treaty. The
functionaries whose services would have been
necessary in the drawing of a formal treaty
were not present. Thus the secret of the
exact terms Is better kept. The statement of
the policy by the Vienna cabinet In December
last created a situation for Austria and Prus?
sia which called for a more accurate definition
of their relations than could be secured by
diplomatic notes. The Gostein conferences
enabled the two chancellors, by confiden?
tial conversations, to reach an under?
standing exactly how the interests of the
two powers could be realized to their mutual
advantage, and now be utilized In dealing to?
gether against other powers. The Rouman?
ian railway difficulty has thus received a satis?
factory solution in the interest of general
peace, and this is regarded as a happy augury
for the application of similar joint action in
future difficulties. The league for maintain?
ing peace means war against any power that
can be provoked to disturb the peace. Rus?
sia, knowing and understanding this, makes
vast preparations for war.

No Yellow Fever In New Orleans-The

dition of the City-Ruffianly Officials
-A Judge's Opinion of the Official Rob
NEW ORLEANS. September 2.
An official note from Dr. Russell, secretary
of the board or health, states that there is not
a case of yellow fever In New Orleans. The
Tribune, commenting on the sanitary condi?
tion of the streets, says : "A Providential in?
terposition, perhaps, has kept sickness from
our doors. The health of the city has been
preserved In the face ot the most utter disre?
gard of sanitary precautions. In many locali?
ties citizens are compelled to close their doors
and windows, endure a want of ventilation and
the excessive heat of the summer nights, that
the noisome smells from the streets be exclud?
ed. All branches oi the city, as well as of the
btate government, seem characterized by Im?
becility, corruption, fraud or violence."
The grand iury, reporting the condition of
the Boys' House ot Refuge, states that the
treatment of the Inmates, by Henry, superin?
tendent, and Schwind, his assistant, deserves
lo be stigmatized as "brutal and ruffianly in
the extreme, and the sooner a jail wall ls
placed between society and Messrs. Henry and
Schwind, the better It will be for society."
Judge Abell, ol the First District Court, calls
I he attention of the grand jury to the action of
?tate Treasurer Dubuclet in refusing to pay
ariginal creditors of the State, and compelling
them to sell claims to his friends. The judge
says: "The State Treasury was once the pr:de
tjfthe State, and the financial agent ot her
:reditors has been literally turned over to tax
?atlierers, brokers, shavers and hang?
ers on. I have presided long lu
this court, and have some Idea of
the depredation and plunder ot burglars,
thieves, ?kc, and am satisfied that the official?
Df i he State have, In two vears, plundered the
Slate of more than all the thieves. Sec., for the
ast quarter ot' a century. Fraud, peculation,
oppression, extortion and blackmailing is re
iorterj to in most unscrupulous manner. The
millions reaped by the two per cent, tax, and
the vast amount of licenses, will be absorbed,
it least one-half of it being consumed by cor?
rupt ofllcials aud merciless brokers, and those
official economists who manage, out of a sala?
ry of less than ten thousand dollars, to save a
inarter of a million." He regards the laws os
inadequate, with the present J ury system, to
sheck or punish these officials; advises the
wise men of the State to counsel together for
ls redemption, and, In conclusion, says : "The
darkest page in the history of the State is now
being made up in darkness, which, I repeat,
when deciphered, will show, at present, bank?
ruptcy, and, perhaps, in the luture, repudia?
