GEORGE FRANCIS TRAIN'S IN

Whatovur iny bo the conclusion of an
ciauiinatlun de lunatteo inquirtmto in tbu
ci ol litvjrgo Francis Trniu, ttiero has
not bevii .for ye:ir. in our minds n doubt of
bit imauity. Eiratiu from hit youth np
wunl.BiruDyoly gifted in intellect mid ptiys
itftl quail tli. , Iii ccccLtricltiei ii.created
with years, until his lect'ire ended In u tort
of epigrammatic incoherence that, like tho
edgu of u tractured mirror, showed the
shining rjualiiies of trngmeutary reason.
Train v;m greatly olicndod when, a year
or two ago, wm tuid be Was luiauu, arid at
tributcd it to n mullcious desire id Injuro
him in th! calimiition of tho tein ol
thousands who, hu was fully persuaded in
his own iniml, intended to cast their votes
tor Jilm us president of tho United States
in 187-. liut it was tbo most charitable
view to take of his mental condition. It
ws impotublu to rd tho (untustio lec
tures and limping verses which be
wrote and printed with n prodigal wasto
of ink and paper, without being painfully
impressed with the conviction that tbuy
were tho product of n brilliant mind, but
a disordered brain. Wo have hid no
character before the public; who in his re
lation to modern ideas moro clmcly re
sembled tbo Knight of Li Mancha in his
relation to the ago ot onivuiry. jfoiu
worn nnd aro exaccomtcd types of
tbo prevailing ideas thut animated tbo
actions of men In tbo respective periods.
The ono was not less amusing to tbo high
born dames of Castilo than tho other to
tho curious loving people of America.
Tho .laintul dltiiironce is tno ono wa a uc-
llllous character, wbilo tho other is a real
personage. Mr. Train is of n class of
monomaniacs which physicians oxpori
on cod in Insanity, nna familiar with thu
multitude- ot Its iminllouattons, tuny un
derstand, national enough on many sub
jects, even shrewdly calculating, the mo
ment tho ono topic upon which me ue

How tbo idea found Its lodging-place iu
Train's mind that bo had any pros-
poets us a presidential candidate It is im-
fiossitiio oven to conjecture, it is certain,
mwevor, that ho utoof tho "insnno root.'
Ho proclaimed bis protective candidacy
throughout Ejropo and whorovor ho went
in the United States. As a martyr in tho
causo of lrland'a freedom, ho saw tho re
ward for his trials and tribulations in thu

WAUHNoro.v, March 21. Senator
Sherman offered a resolution which was
referred to tbo coramltteo ou printing,
providing that two bound copies of con
gressional records for this session bo fill
nisbed to each senator.
Senator Kenton submitted tbo following,
which, at his request, lies over, and was
Resolved, That tho committee on
finance bu directed to inquire what meas
ure or measures can bo adopted by tho
government which shall give to toe coun
try a currency covertlble into gold at tho
will of tho bolder, thus securing greater
stability in exchange and trade, and work
protection in Investment, and In
the compentalion of labor, and
to report by bill or other
wise at the next tension of coogress.
' Senator Ferry ol tbo committee, offered
an amendment to thu pending reiolution
so tint Instead of declaring that Alexander
Caldwell was not duly elected, the resolu
tion should read: "Pcsolved,Tbal Caldwell
bo and bo Is hereby expelled from the
senate of tbu United Slates.
Senator Fralingbuyson says the senate
bad power to expel a member who had
committed a crime, but as to the election
of Caldwell, tbo electors wero legal votern
voted freely and uiiderstandingly, an d
therefore the election wns valid, nnd for
till i reason ho should nut vote to declare
that Caldwell was not duly and legally
Senator JIowo conQned himself princi-
tally to the point that the avidonco wns
overwhelming that Caldwell was duly
and legally elected, and therefore hu
hould not vote for thu resolution of the
committee. If they found the man un
111 for senator they could expel him, but
n doing this thy bad no riijht to refer to
the valid act of the legislature.
Sehator Morrill of Maine, said bo should
vote for tho resolution of tbo committee
becauvj he believed it would bu whole-
so mo to bxcrciso the power and duty de
volving on tho senate. Ho held aUu the
right of lh senate by two
thirds vote to expel members.
Tho power otherwise is unqualified
by the constitution, and is limited only
by tho exerciso of what lawyers called
sound or legal discretion. Ho hoped how
ever the oxercliejof this power would not be
necetsnry in this case, and that tbo senato
would not shirk tho perforrnanco
of its evident duty, to decide
that it had authority to enquire Into tbo
validity of tbo election of its members,
and to establish a principlo that all such
elections must bo freo and unpurchased.
Senator Stewart argued against tho
ponding resolution; ho said tho senate bad
no moro right to inqulro into tho vote of
members of n legislature, than members
of a legislature could inquiro Into tho
votes of senators.
Tho senato went into cxecutivo session,
nnd ifoon afterwards adjourned.

Tbo doomed man seemed to have hope

At 12 rnmutcs past 9 o'clock Foster left
his cell ou tho march to the scaffold. As
be entered the yard Foster gavo one
quick, startled glance around, but
Instantly recovered himself, and
walked with a tolerably firm step
to the gallows. Ho wai attended
by tho sheriff and under cherllf, and was
closely followed by Rev. Dr. Tyng and
liev. Mr. Shoonmaker, the former of
whom prayed as he walked.
On reaching the gallows, Foster of h'u
own accord placed hlmsolf bonoath the
noose, his taco looking very pal" beneath
tho black cap, and grew paler every mo
ment. Ai Dr. Tyng prayed he
bowed bis hoad and covered hit
face with his right hand. For
six minutes Dr. Tyng continued prayer,
and It was evident Foster was on tbo
point of swooning. The sborltV quietly
signallod Dr. Tyng to finish as quickly as
posslblo, and advancing shook Foslor by
the hand. Dr Tyng then bade him fare
well, and at 0:1 a.m. the signal was given
and Foster wa jerked violently into tbo air.
Fostor was a heavy man, and for onco tbo
no:k was broken, and tho fpectators wero

Tho heart ceased to beat in rather less
than 12 minutes from tbo time the weight
fell, and In all probability Fostor diod

A PHILADELPHIA TRAGEDY.
From tho Mlourl Republican.
Another Kilo ol Iiorrur coinea from
Philadelphia, a city which has already
done its lull share In contributing sucn
sensations. Chartc J. Clonk was emi
nently respectable when ho was not drunk.
Ho was a mechanic in locomotive works.
He lived with his old mother, his wife, a
littlo daughter bltuJ thirteen, and an
adopted son aged seven. Ono night laloly
iiviwetil liomo intoxicated to n uatigerous
extont, and his old mother and hit wifo
tied his hands, gave him somu tobacco and
put him to bed, as tlio story goes, tliougu
what ho could want with tobacco in bed,
nlfh hla hnnit tttwl fx lint v..rv itr.r. Mr.
and Mrs, Cloak and ihu littlo daughtor
and adopt'i-l sun till occupied
the samu bod. About llvo o'clock in
tho morning tbo littlo girl was awakened
by a light stiinlng in bur eyes. Shu looked
up and saw Cloak standing in the room
looking at nU wife. Ho spok't to the
child saving : "Mary look at your
mother," " She looked and saw Mrs. Cloak
covered with blood, and a great gash in
hortomplo. She asked: "Who did this,
papal" and ho said : "I don't know;
tomeeno tr.uil havo oohw In
and done It," and burnt
into tear. Tno littlo girl did not
shriek or fHlnt. but said: "Well, Its no use
Ktanding tbore; why don't you go for a
doctor'' Ha asked tho girl where ho
fhould go; sho told mm nna no nurriou
out of tho house. Sho then called across
the street for a neighbor. Mrs. Cloak was
still alive, but could not speak, and died
in a couplo of hour.'. Cloak did not ro-
turn to the house, hut wandered around
until ho was arrested by tho polio. Tho
It seems that Cloak awoko about 4
o'clock in tbo morning and drcsiud him
self, then proceeded to tbo cellar and get
an old rusty ax, in which Mrs. Cloak, the
murdered woman, bad inserted a broken
bandlo about two weeks ago. She had
u-ed it for broaking Ice. It was tlx oil just
as a woman would ho likely to fix it. The
handle bad been broken, and what was
loft of it had been whittled down and fit
ted into tho eye of tho ax in a kind of
broken-backed shapo. Cl"ak got this ax
and slipped quietly up stairs, with tho
light In onn hand and tho ax in the other.
Having ascertained tho position of his
wifo bo placed tho light on tho
mantel and dealt her two fearful
blows on the loft temple. The
frit blow sink tho back of tho
xxo two and a half ir.chc into her skull.
Tbo socond blow was nut so sovere, but
morely I r.'ko tho skull. Ho took tho ax
down stairs and laid it under tbo tabic
Thon'ho roturno'l rnd stood by tho bed
sid" t J soo hor life-blood ebb away.
No causo hut whiskey Is assigned for
tho commission of this murdorous deed.
A brother of tho murderer Is nn the Phila
dclpbio polico force, and is a sober and re
putable ofilcer. Mrs. Vlonk bas sovoral
brolhors, hard working, sobor men. Cloak
was fully committed in accordaoro with
the vord'lct of the coroner's jury.
