A NEW DISCOVERY!
The question of questions,
with the learned and unlearned,
the materialist, scientist, re
ligionists, and in iact every
body, is "What is Modern
Spiritualism?" Is it a verity or
is it all a humbug ? Can it be
explained from a physiological
standpoint and does it come
' under the head of Physics, or
does it come from supernatural
causes and without laws or or-
. .der. That the phenomena ex
ists, is beyond dispute, whether
it will ever be explained re-
: Jnains to be seen. That some
.lipirits can be Beep, handled
And made use of to a good ad
vantage as well as explained is
, also a fact to which all drug
gists and chemists can testify.
They need not be named, be
cause their name is legion.
We refer principally to those
medicines through which spirits
figure largely as restorative
agencies. Saur's Drug and
; Medicine Depot harbors a large
number of healing spirits which
can be purchased for a very
small sum of money and if used
according to directions will be
the means of relieving pain and
restoring the health of the af
flicted. This same drug store
has many other things in which
it seeks to make itself useful
and to benefit mankind. The
book department furnishes the
provisions upon which hun
dreds of brains are fed and are
thus kept alive and active. The
large stock of elegant patterns
of wall and window, paper is
another medicine by which
many homes is made warm and
comfortable. Then, too, comes
the many different colored
paints which aie not only a
great preservative agency, but
add to the beautiful as well,
ons of which is sold annually
and which gives employment to
thousands of people. This is a
branch of business m which this
house also figures largely. Saur's

Another Railway Passenger Train Bob
All the Passengers Robbed of tbelr
Cincinnati, SepC 8. X special from
Independence, Missouri, says the Chicago
& Alton West Express and Mail train
No. 48, was stopped by nine masked men,
two miles west of Qlendale at 9 o'clock
The express messenger was knocked
down and terribly beaten. His safe was
broken open and 'robbed of a large
amount of money variously estimated at
from $5,000 to $30,000. The passengers
were also robbed. . :
The train was stopped by lantern sig
nals and the track obstructed by stones
and logs, The robbers were heavily
armed with guns and revolvers and kept
up a continual firing.
The robbery occupied ten minutes,
no one was Injured exoept the express
messenger, whose injuries are thought to
be fatal. He bravely defended his car
and refused to open the safe.
Several shots were fired at Conductor
Hazelbaker but he escaped.
The train ran into Kansas City and the
alarm waa given. The entire police
force of the city immediately organized
in a pursuing posse and are now on the
way by special train to the scene of the
robbery. A large posse is being organ
ized here and will leave immediately.
There Is no doubt but that Jesse James
was the leader of the gang. The rob
bery occured within two miles of the
same spot as the celebrated Olendale
robbery of October 8, 1870.
The following additional particulars of
the robbery of the passenger train on the
Chicago & Alton Railroad, are given:
The train was the west bound express,
and had about 100 passengers on board,
all of whom lost something and many
STATEMENT OF FRANK LOMBARD. ,
Frank Lombard, news agent of the
train, made the following statement: 'I
was sitting in;the smoking car talking
with Conductor Jack Hazelbaker; we
were on the up grade, four miles from
Independance; all of a sudden the train
came to a stop; I heard loud voices and
pistol shots, and saw lanterns flashing;
knew train robbers were on us; Hazelba
ker ran back into the train and warned
the passengers. They were all looking
out the windows until the robbers order
ed them to pull in their heads and keep
quiet. The robbers had stopped the
tijain by jutting, .obstructions on the
tails and signaling. Iam sure? there
were a dozen of them, although some of
the passengers placed the number at six
teen. Everybody was panic-stricken
and helpless, I ran out of the car and
found men guarding the engineer and
fireman. They were poorly masked, but
all armed with Henri rifles. They -were
swearing lpvdly and shooting at ran
dom. Some of them passed into the
mail car but did not touch .'anything.
Express Messenger Fox, in the mean
time, had barricaded tlie express car.
They climbed upon the train and began
to shoot. They then broke into the car
and knocked Fox down by a violent
blow on the head. They robbed the safe
of everything. I ran back into the
smoking car and hid most of my mon
ey. The robbers came in and ordered
me to lie down. I did so, and thev shov
ed a gun at my head and told me "to fork
over. J said my money was under the
cusnion. ineytoiame to get it, and I
got it in a hurry, you can bet; They
then went back to the other cars and
made a wholesale "robbery of money,

BBcreieu iiieir money, out ine great ma
jority lost all. The ladies were compell
ed to sit down on the floor, and' some
had ear-rings taken from their ears, and
many lost all their jewelry. One man
lost $450, In the meantime a freight
train was coming up behind us, and Bur
ton, the brakeman, ran down the cut
with a storm of bullets after him, stop
ped the train and probably saved many
lives. After the cars were gone through
the robbers jumped off and struck for the
timber, where their horses were. The
men in front helped the train men re
move the obstructions and joined their
companions. I should say we stood still
half an hour,
Brakeman, said: I was standing on the
front platform of the sleeper -when the
train stopped. Heard voices and oaths
on the back platform. I said: "We are
going to be robbed." Then one of the
robbers cried out, '!We are coming in and
going through you, all." I remembered
that the freight train was just behind
us, and I heard it coming un, I iumned
off and ran with my lantern down the
track. They commenced shooting at me.
Bullets whizzed all around me and struck
the rails and stones. They must have
fired twenty-five shots. The engineer
said: "For God's sake don't shoot the
bov. He is saving the lives of these peo
pie." Then one of them threw up his
arms and cried: "Stop shooting" l roll
ed into the cut and waved my lantern,
The train was stopped only a car length
off. When I came back one of the rob
bers said, "have you lost anything?" I
answered, "Fifty cents." He gave me
$l 60 for interest. Then I beard' one of
the robbers say to the engineer: "Chon

up this business. Here's $2 to buy a

ENGINEER FOOTE'S ACCOUNT.
Between three and four miles east of
Independence is a deep cut over which
the Missouri track crosses the Chicago
& Alton, and it was just before .entering
the deepest part or this cut that l saw a
pile of scones, probably five feet high, on
top of which was.a stick to which was
attached' a red flag, and behind the
whole stood the leader of the robbers.
Of course I stopped. I was then ap
proached by four of the gang besides
me leader, who said: "Step down on
that engine and do as I tell you, or I
will kill you." He then told me to get
the coal pick, which I did, after some
parleying, but as a revolver was pointed
at my head I couldn't refuse to obey.
They then marched me and John Stead
ing, the foreman, to the express car, and
told me ro break the door down, which I
did. Messenger Fox had hidden in the
wheels by the roadside but they swore
they would kill me if he didn't come out,
and so I called for him and he entered
the car with two of the robbers, who
forced him to open the safe and pour its
contents into a sack. They were disap
pointed at not getting more booty, and
knocked Fox down twice with the butt
end of a navy revolver, cntting his head
in a fearful manner. They then march
ed us to the coaches, where they kept us
covered with revolvers while they rob
bed the passengers. After the last car
was gone through tney marched us back
to the engine, when the leader said:
"Now, get back there; we will remove
the stones. You' have been a bnllv bov.
and here is a little present for you," and
ne nanaea me two silver dollars. I told
them I would remove the obstructions
and the entire gang skipped np over the
embankment and were out of sight in a
twinkling. In going through the pas

A METHODIST'S OPINION
Of the Penublican Party and Press.
Rev. E. B. Leonard is a prominent pas
tor of an M. E. church in Cincinnati.
He took a prominent part in the Love'
land Convention, which nominated
"Honest Abe"'. Ludlow,-of Springfield,
for Governor. For this action he has
been viciously abused by the Cincinnati
Gazette and denounced by the Cincinnati
commercial as a " bum mcr, "lunatic,
The reverend gentleman opened the
vaiupuigu ior m lemperance people the
and the following are some choice ex
tracts from his speech:
HE WILL NEVER VOTE THE REPUBLICAN
"If the temperance cause 'had an organ
some of the slanders which have been
circulated since the Loveland Camp
Meeting could be refuted in print. Not
having such an organ, we must refute
the falshood from the platform. I am
not a politician, and God helping me I
never will be. I might say that I was
born a Republican, but don't know that
it is ahy to my credit just now. jXaugh
ter. I have always voted the Republi
can ticket, but will never do it again.
Applause. The temperance people
must fight hard to establish their princi
ples. It has always been the case with
new parties, that the people and press
have fought them with the cry that it is
not time just yet to organize a new par
ty." REPUBLICAN PRTENTIONS.
"The Republicans then pretended to us
that if they were put into power, they
would give us what we asked. We help
ed to elect a Republican Legislature.
Then we sent in our petition. They put
us off until after the Presidential elec
tion last fall, promising great things for
last winter. Ifwasno better last win
ter, and the Republican Legislature went
out of power without having passed one
law in our cause.
HE PAYS HIS RESPECTS TO JOHN SHERMAN.
"The only plea that can come to us in
favor of whiskey traffic is that there is
revenue in it. Senator Sherman said the
other day that the revenue on liquor is
paying the interest on the National debt.
Who is paying this .interest? Is it the
distiller or salesmen of the liquor? No;
it is paid by the poorer people, whom it
is running, whose families it is starving,
and from whom it is taking the clothes
off their backs. I say shame on a Gov
ernment which boasts that the interest
on its debt is being paid by robbing its
poor families and wrecking thousands of
homes. Applanse. The time will come
when the Government will pay in iude-
ment for this." God will see this wrong
THE PREACHERS AND THE POLITICIANS.
"The worst thev can aav about our
cause is that it is a Methodist preachers'
movement. Let them say it. If they
can't say anything worse, it will not
hurt our cause. The time was when the
politicians were not so Bneering in their
remarxs anout the preachers. They
knew that the preachers of the North
eighteen years ago, by a unanimous
voice, did mnch to hold the North to

papers which were then denouncing
Copperheads, are now denouncing the
Temperance people in the ; same spir
DRIVING REPUBLICANS OUT OF THEIR PAR
"The Gazette says that the ministers at
the- Loveland Convention attempted to
represent the Methodist church in the
movement. Now, the Gazette either
knew that this was a false statement or
it did not know it. If it did not know
it, it ought not to have said it. .This
sort of thing is driving ten men from the
Republican ranks where it is bringing
one : back. Applause. . The ' Gazette's
columns are full of postal card commu
nications against our Convention: But
there are none of them signed with
names. I want the uazelle to know that
the President of that Convention was a
Presbyterian minister, the Clerk a Ro
man Catboiio and the Vice-Pres'.dent a
Quaker. This is a people's movement,
as the Republicans will find out when
the votes are counted." Applause.
OF COURSE NOT.
"I want to say here that General
Hurst had no right in our Convention.
and had no right in our Convention, and
had I gone to Cleveland and acted in the
Republican Convention a General
Hurst did at Loveland, would I have
been permitted to have remained in that
Convention?" Cries of "No! No!"
LET FOSTER WITHDRAW.
"The Republican papers say we'll elect
Bookmaker. I don't know about that.
We'll vote our ticket. I'll not vote for
Book waiter, nor yet will I vote for Fos
ter. Loud applause. If they are afraid
they Can't elect Foster, they can defeat
Bookwalter by voting for our candidate,
whose Republicanism has neve r been
questioned!" Loud applause.
THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH WILL IMPROVE

"It was whiskey which shot Garfield.
It was not denied that the day before the
attempted assassination Guiteau was un
der the influence of liquor. But Garfield
is getting well, and I don't think his con
valescence depends on the election of the
Republican ticket. If it did, I think I
would'stretch it again and vote once
more with them.' But it doesn't, and
he'll get well if Foster is defeated."
OPPOSED TO FOSTER ON PRINCIPLE.
"Just as the Gazette' opposed Mayor
Jacob's election last Spring -'on high
moral grounds' so we, the temperance
people, oppose the election of Governor
Foster -on high moral principles.' As

tSneolal Dispatch to the Ennulrer.1
Columbus, Ohio, September 11. The
desperate straits to which the "C." Fos
ter pasty gf Ohio is reduoedis shown byl
tne. ntcie metnoa oemg resorted to to
make votes. Not only is the Governor's
office being degraded as an electioneer
ing bureau, but the service of the Gener
al Government is dragged in as a tail
end to Foster's kite. The following let
ter was received by your correspondent
to-day, and will prove a startling revela
tion to the voters of Ohio: ,
"West Union, Ohio, Sept. 8, 1881.
"Dear Sir: Applicants for pensions
who vote the Democratic ticket are re
ceiving letters from Columbus, . of which
the following is a sample copy:
'Exkcutive Chamber, )
Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 25, 1881. f
"To Eli Stevens, Esq., Bradvsville.
Ohio My Dear Sir: W. W. Dudley has
notified Governor Foster that yottr case
has been made special. You will be
promptly informed of any action as soon
as taken. Yours, respectfully,
F. D. Musset, Private Sec'y."
"I think it advisable that the people of
Ohio should know the demagogery being
resorted to by the Governor of Ohio to
"J. P. Leedom."
The question arises, ' what has Foster
got to do with the pension business? Is
lie running a special pension bureau for
Ohio? If he is, why is he making spe
cial exertions to obtain a pension for
Democratic soldiers? What have the Re
publican soldiers of Ohio done that Gov.
Foster should not be making "special"
efforts to secure a pension for them?
Does he propose to treat the Republican
soldiers as he does the "D d Method
ists?" The soldiers of Ohio, irrespective
of party, will see through this flimsy
trick, and not be caught on a pin-hook.
The Republican papers, led by the
Journal and Dispatch, have been pub
lishing a letter purporting to have been
written by John W. Bookwalter. This
letter is a forgerj and a libel, and was
furnished to these papers by a shoe
maker who was once in the Cincinnati
Work-house for petit larceny. No such
letter was ever written by Mr. Bookwal
ter, and was never seen by any honetit
man. The Republican press of Ohio are
badly driven for camnaicn slanders
when they will take copy furnished by a
person or such atrocious character.
Reports from the Hocking Valley
mining region indicate that intense feel
ing and great excitement exists among
the miners over the $75,000,000 syndic
cate wnicn nas just been formed to buy
all the mines in the Hocking Valhy. It
isgenerly believed here that Governor
Foster is one of the heavy stockholders
in this gigantio monopoly. The miners
believe this; and, remembering how the
liovernor, with queer promptness,
ordered the military iuto Corning to
shoot the miners . down and protect the
negroes' are fearful that the new scheme
eimply means a species of slavery for
them, tor if (he many mines owned by
one corporation instead of many opera'
tors, they will be compelled to work for
such wages as the Company dictates, and
if they striice tney starve. An immense
miners' picnic will be held Sept. 18th at
Carbon Hill, at which all the miners in
the Hocking Valley ire expected to be
present, to take the . grave outlook into
consideration, . Foster has 1 sent: his
agents into' the coal regions to ' apprise
the miners, but they are more indignant
now than ever. -. ..;.'.:.

Washington. Sept. 12th 1881. '
Bluet- the removal of the President to Long. Branch
the White House presents a deaerted apupareuce an
also does newspaper row, most 01 me correspon
dents having followed the patient. Thia together
with the hot weather has in&do Washingtou aboutaH
dull aa I ever aaw it.' Still, a boating regatta
on the river and the more than usual anxiety over the
bulletins from the President, there has been some In
terest leftin the minds of our excitement seeking
population. Perhaps there is no city where constant
cnange ana excitement, poiinuai or otnerwise, ia i
much an element of every day life. Yet wo have our
dull aeason, beglninning usually with July and end
ing with September. But where there is quiet now
there will be activity. Citizens and officials who
have been off to the mountains or tho eea shore are
now returning and residences which have been closed
begin to open, while the pnblic business in the vari
ous Departments, which has boen allowed to drag,
will soou move on again.
I walked past tho While Rouse, thla' morning and
waa stinck with the marked change about the premi
ses. Never before, pfohabiy, hwi there been so much
auxioty centered between the four walls of that histo
rical edifice aa has dwelt there from the 2d of July to
Tuesday morning last. Soldiers paced plowly and
regularly about the guarded gates and physicane,
journalists, visitors, distinguished nud otherwise,
members of the, Cabinet and other officials were con
stantly seen passing In and out, while around the
gates on the outside has-been an anxious crowd seek
ing for tho least information from the sick room .
This has been the datly'condltion for eight weeks, but
now all ia chauged.' The gates are no longer guard
ed and the tfoldlera have disappeared irom the In
closure. But nobody wants to go iu for there U
nothing lo we. All life litis disappeared from the
mansion except the tiphers and the clerk up stairs.
The private part of the house ia under lock and key,
and the hiirroundingx have never before seemed so
lonesome. This Is not the lirst time that the Ex
ecutive porttou-of the Government, Cabinet and all,
has been removed to Long Brunch, hut It has never

The "inability" question Is being iliscusseil pret
ty froely, especially by the National Republican of
this city, and some oilier Journals belonging rather to 1
what lBtermed the stalwart element. It is held by

the emergency aud that he should atep fowortl anil
take the rein"! I huve talked with a good many pub
lic men about the matter and there is a u ide differ

contemplated by the Constitution, but therein also,

i Aaa matter of, fact the Government la not smYcr.
ing through the illness of President Garfield. .Dur
ing tli summer months, from time Immemorial, th.
business of Ihe Departments has been of a routine
character, merely, and only on very rare occasions is
the personal attention ' of the President required.
The heads of Departments ore gcucraly away and,
as was the case during Prcsidtmta Hayes' adminis

fact that the only matters at present requiring thr
official attention of the President are the appoint,

for the Kavy and the exercise of tho
pardon lug pow er, if need be, in the case ofturef
