tempted murder of llr.i. Eliza Nettletoa of

farm and employed Holmes to tako etiargo

O.VAnA, Nob., April 23. Some time ago a
man of atti active presenco who intro

that the alleged Prof. Moranda was Joseph

that ho deserted his second and her help

Louisville, Ky., Apr.l 23. The amou-it
of ex-Treasurer Tato's defalcation with all
credits made is now placed at $15d.U00. It
is learned that just before leaving he sent
the negro portor to the bank for a largo
sum, saying ho wanted it to pay a school
claim. As no claims wore due this is mado
evidence that he took with him from 5T3.0JO
to $1!0,00J. The c-itnmissioncrs found that
the defalcation ran back many years, uno
of tho notes being dated IStiS, tho year ho
came into office. In settling from year to
year he b.ilanccd his books for Decem
ber 31 and presented his bank balances for
the end of the first week in January. In
settlemonls twelve years ago what appear
to bo forgeries have been foutid. This
crime is extraditable, and it is on account
of this that he is believed to be hiding so
closely. The L O. U.'s amount to ?5J,003.
One man hss 200. Another sent a check
for $100 to meet his, and the check was
pinned to the obligation and so will be pre

Grovcr Cleveland is the only clergy
man's son who has ever been elected Presi
dent, though Arthur's father was a clergy
man. He was not, however, elocted Presi
dent. The fathers of tho Virginia Presi
dents Washington, Jefferson, Madisoa
and Monroe were i-lauters. John Tyler's
father was a lawyer and a statesman, and
John Adams, tho father of John Quincy
Adams, was by profession a lawyer.
Grant's father was a tanner, Hayes' father
a merchant, and the fathers of Garfield.
Lincoln, Pierce, Fillmore, Polk, VaaBuren
and Jackson were farmers. Tbe chances
for the Presidency in lhe fast have thus
been with the farmers' boys, and out of
the eighteen Presideuts elected by the peo
ple only ono has been a parson's son. Presi
dent Cleveland never went to collogc, and
Washington, Jackson, Van Buren, Taylor,
Fillmoore, Lincoln and Johnson bad no
college training. John Adams was edu
cated at Harvard, Thomas Jefferson stud
ied Latin at William aud Mary and Madi
son probably used pony translations while
he was at Princeton. Monroe and Tyler
were also students at William and Mary,
at Williamsburg, and John Quincy Adams
graduated at Harvard. Harrison was col-lege-breJ.
Pierce was a good mathemati
cal student at Bowdoiu College, and Bu
chanan went to school at Dickinson Col
lege. General Grant was the only Presi
dent who had a military education. Ruther
ford Hayes was educated utKenyon Col
lege. Garfield studied at Williams, and
Arthur was schooled at Union Coll-ge.

vlftiona. Washington, April 21. Mr. Anderson,
of Kansas, ono of tho committeo that in
vestigated thu Reading strike, has intro
duced in the Houso a bill which embodies
his views of tho legislation necessary for
securing to the public a regular servico by
railroad companies. The Reading was
taken as tho type 01 a railway that is
wholly within ono State, and thorcforo
held to be free from Congressional legisla
tion, since Congress had jurisdiction only
over Inter-Stato commerce. Tho bill was
referred to the Coininerco Commit ee. It
i3 entitled "a bill to declare the duties, en
force the obligations, nnd regulate tho
service of railroad companies as carriers
of Inter-State commerce" It provides
that the jurisdiction of a Stato ceases with
its torritory. No State railroad can be
come a carrier of Iuter-Stato commerce
except by the permission and authority of
the United States. Au old act of ISiC,
which gave this authority, is so amended
as only to include such Stato corpora
tions as accept the provisions of this
bill, and all others are prohibited
from carrying Inter-State commerce
under heavy penalties. Every railroad sub
ject to the bill, for which privntn property
has been taken by eminent domain, is mado
a public highway of the United States. A
corporation holding thu f ranch iso of col
lecting tolls, or of operating a public high
way as a railroad, is declared to bo a cus
todian and trustee of public property, and
bound to maintain and operato it for the
interest of the public, subject only to its
charter rights. Tho duties and obligations
ot tbe holder of these franchises aro de
clared to bo distinct from and prior to
those of a common earner, and their per
formance is enforced under penalties. Thu
Iuter-Stato Commerce Commission is re
quired to execute the provisions of the bill,
and is given a corps ot Inspectors. In the
event of a failure by a company to run its
regular trains, tho Commission is required
to promptly iuvestigato tho facts und to is
suo such orders as will securo the regular
sorvice. If, after seven days, the service
is not performed, tho Attorney-General is
required to procuro tho appointment of u
receiver, who is to operato tho road as for
tho United States and may omploy tho old
force. Companies are given tho right to
connect thoir roads with others and aro
prohibited from engaging in mining or uny
other business than that of a carrier and
stringent prohibition is made of combiua
tious of competing lines or of rates.

happens that tho people he would like

who show n decided disinclination to
