Of tho former tbero was th'i hoad of the

daughter aged fourteen yoa, nnd two
sons. Of the Cluytoni, thero was father,
mother nnd dangblcr, tho bitter aged
twelve yoirs. Tho pty woro on their

thntbu "knuw th.y wero from Tcnmi

sympathize 1 v.ith them " nnd would do all
bo ooul 1 to mttiu them comfortable until
thu arrival ot the boat. The women r.e
ooptod IhooHi-r and woro conducted li tbo
I.tm.v: KEXTl'i KIAIJ SALOON.
They woro shown into.-, tide room, nnd
tho most corleom trcnltumit accowled
tboni. They w.'re olI'.irM wbtsky, 'indy,
etc., nnd shortly afiir a man r.r.stforing
tho dltcriptiou of J. K. lVrks, piopnetor
of tho den, came into the, room and r.sked
the girl.i to gt wi:h him to a pUro near
by whero they could gat . tome warm
CrtHee. At firt thu jjjrli rlutid, but be
ing prevailed on flsiually ooutonted to
go. They started and wro followed by
a inir.ll troy, a brother ut Mif Tolle's, and
when outside tho door Farts gavo llm lad
ten cents If he would go back. The boy
tk tho money arid returned.
Illumining uwy loncor than was ox
pccled the mothers of the gtrN bncaiaa
nbout tlmm and upon miking in.jtiirlo
could obtain no satisfactory infonnftlion
ci to their whercHb mts. l'crk did not
roluru, and tbii woman baooming tbor
oaghly alarmed spnt fully two hoiirl,
ploiling through rain and mud In search,
of their children, but could not rind them.
Half craned with fonr for tho saioty
of their daughlers they rturnwl to tho
wagons to nr ue thoir husbandi, who
all this tiuin w ro unconscious ot what
wai going on.
i'robably three hours aftr leaving tho
stloon, .Miss Tollo,
fi.VIl OK Til 1 flini.S, HOT 11AI K
to tho wagon in n lorrlble plight, Hor
clothing was torn, wot and covered with
mud; and sbo told a tiek ining utory of
what had oceuvod after tboy loft tbo sn-

of the siloon nnd reachol the sidowalk
thuv wero .joined by another man, and
woro taken, sho c mid not toll whore.
Shortly lifter Ios.vIng tbo siluon thoy
wanted to go back, but that ono of tho
mon I I'urks) sworo that if tl.ny did not
go on ho would; "cut their tbroits."
Shortly l.fior tho other girl, Miss Clayton,
after getting away from Harks and Ids ac
complice, succeeded In llnding hor way to
the wagon. Him was covered with mud
nnd horcblhing was torn to shraadi. Sho
nttomp'ed to tell whit had occurred, but
was so frightened nnd excited that not
moro than half sho slid could bo under

avonuo, whon sho returned to thu WRgon
Inuring her ecroams hurried to tbo spot,
but were unable at tho time to nseortuln
just what had occurred, tho wholo party
of women being so excited to bu una

AVhun they bocamo inoro culm, tbo girls
thl thoir mothers' what had happonod,
that I'urks nnd Tom Jllitck, tlio umn who
jolnod them after coming out of tho saloon,
had terribly maltreated them had used
tho moit obicono languago, and finally'
attempted to vioiato tbuir persons, and as
to tho younger of tho girls, Miu Clayton,
hor injurioi woro so apparent as to leave
no doubt of tho truthfulnoss of hor
IS TlIK MORNINfl,
tbo nows of what ha t taken placo bocom-
ing noised about, n largo crowd of excited
men congregated In front of tbo "I.itllo

tolling what would havo became of them.
Hut, doublleM knowing something of
thu old ndagQ Hint "discretion is tho bot
tor part of vnlor," their villainous coun
tenances woro no whore to bo soon.

The ofllccra woro not long in working
up thu caco, and boforo ninn u'ulook it
was nscortaino.l that Hark and Hlack had
omployod u man mimed llabor who re.
vUIoh on Thirty-fourth "tract, to row thorn
acroja tbo liver, paying l.uu two dollars
for tho tusk. Chief of polico .Mcllaln and
Deputy Sburill' Cain also employed Ha
bov to take thorn across tho rivor
ut tho Baiuo place. 'When
on tbo opposite side it was an ussy, mattor
to track 1'arka nnd Hlack. They tried to
deludo the olllcors by Urst walking one
way and thou another in tho hopo of put

schemo did not work, ami Mcllulo und
Cain traced thum down lliji rivor to tho

toltlsb nnd ignnorant man that proposes
to run for alderman of the first ward.
Ho -ms to Mku my littlo epntln of

the g'inlltmun out ; but only in personal
itiet ; nnd In hit attempt to smooth up his
own bad character lie com plain, of mine,
asserting that I man h.ibituafjlrunkard
i This complaint I attribute Ui tho fact that
I do not purcnusi any of his bad whisky
iir ho don't dl anvtuing n!sa ; and that
is ono of my reaon for opptng him as a
I candidate fur the l'irst ward. Ho is ad
dk'tod to bad habitt, nnd Ihinka ff hn
could got into tho council ho could g(t

bo tho ovtent of hi.) legislation -to try
and pats an ordinance that would allow
him to sell uhoap whisky on a cheaj
seale. Thil would allow him to keep his
ritii' about him. f that he could st'ir.d on

Hill accuica mo of being a porionol on

oppose him; but that don't control my vote
nor iulluenoo it. Hut Hill says I can t
control ono voto, nnd that 1 havn't any

is ono thing that is impo'sible, and that is
to prevent mo from thinking that a.inan

supposo if .Mr. Scott could persuade ma to
go down to his saloon on election day nnd
slip in tho buck way to purchase somo of
his bad whisky ho would not refine to sell
It to mo, regardless of Col. AVood's order.

Hill also speak of bin condescension in
nnsworing my card. Now, it tho world
know his condosconslon ns I do, they
would know nothing loo low nnd dirty
for Bill to condescend to. I reckon Hill
