Schemes to refund the Southern cotton tax
and other scheme, mora than efiotfgil an
hundred times over to put Congressmen on
their guard against the manipulations of
the Lobby. The PiiUburjt Telegrapk of 2",
writes on the subject as follows. From
the goings r.t in a number of interested
quarters', we judge tht a raid wilbeuiade
on Congress this winter on behalf of a
number of schetnas involving an enor
mous expenditure of the public money.
Tbe Kortb a Pacific Railroad, it is now
pretty generally conceded at Washington,
inc(t! or being deterred by tbe failure of
Jay Ooke Ji. Co., from asking for subsidy
aid, will ask Congress during the coming
session to guarantee the interest on its
bonds for a large amount in exchange for a
portion of its land grant. To meet tbe
anti-monopoly feeun'g recently so devel
oped in the West, the Company will pro
pose, if tbe subsidy is conceded, to permit
Congress to tlx tbe rates of freight and pas
senger (ares. There is a coolness in this
idea that is admirable. But it is hot alone
the Northern Pacific that propositi to lay
siege to the Treasury. The Union Slid Cen
tral Pacific tteaira to gt rW of paving any
of the interest on their bonds, which the
Govern menl has indorsed, and which now
amounts to an annual charge of millions on
the Treasury. The siiuplo question that
ought to meet Congress is whether the
United States shall go on for an Indefinite
time paying its annud proportion of inter

the principal, or nether it will stop tbe
business now, by compelling these compa
nies to pay the interest promptly, or lacing
the road and selling it to thos- who will.
It is certain that the United States as sec
ond mortgagee will have in the end to take
these roads to protect its own debt and in
terest, and possibly the sooner it is done
the better, but this is what the lobby will
Be em4uyed to contest and Congressmen
to vote against.
Besides these schemes there are other
jobs sf ciicmons? magnitude, all having as
their objective point, the Federal treasury.
Tbe cotton tax is one of them, the assump
tion of Southern State debts another, itrtd
there ar half a doscn ship canal projects
that will coat tuitions and hundreds of mil
lions, a great portion of which wHI go to
enrich Credit Uobilier and construction
companies. Then are rumors of a com
bination of all these projects, so that they
will have a surprising amount of strength,
on local considerations alone, to commence
with. Tbe Southern Pacific road also wants
a matter of sixty millions. A Washington
corresjtoudent figures up the astonding to
tal of seven hundred millions, u the gross
amount of tbe sum demanded by these
combined raiders on the treasury. Of
cou.le they will take less, but the figures
are sei high at tbe outset.
What Congress may do, and how it wi 11
meet the assault on its integrity, is difficult
to determine in advance, but after the ex
posures and scandal of the last session we
think ihe least particle of prudence wonld
dictate that the whula batch of claimants
and plunderers, of'aiious degrees of cor
ruption and impudence, should be turn
ed adrift to browse as best they can on
private pastures, where they w ill have to con
tend w ith individual integrity and shrewd
ness. The Kepublican majority in Con
go's cannot afford to carry these subsidy
schemes. The load would be too much for
them, individually and collectively, and po
litical expediency as well as higher motives
dmian4 they should be rejected l the out
set firmly and decisively.
Ex President Jgiiksox was sere
naded at the Metropolitan Hotel at
Washington, D. C, on tbe evening of
tbe 23rd inst. Calls were made for a
speech. The ex-President appeared
and delivered one, in which be deliver
ed his usual talk about tbe Constitu
tion. He denounced Congress, a good
deal after bis old fashion. He wished
for tbe return of the days and times of
the old Democratic and Whig parties.
He believes the "liberties of the peo
ple are gone." He referred to the
"Patrons of Husbandry, or Grauges."
For them be cared nothing further than
that if they could right things in na
tional and State governments he wished
them success. He favored a war on
monopolies. He believes gold and sil
ver to be tbe Constitutional currency,
and favored the wifhtfrawal of all na
tional bank notes and the substitution
of greenbacks, to be received in pay
ment of all Government dues. It Was
a speech characteristic of Mr. John
son. Tbt ex-PresMetit certarttly bas
the right ts-ta-k whenever and wherever
ib? people will listen to bm, but the
point of a speech such as be delivered
at Washington is obscure, nnles, in
deed, it was merely to talk.
The managing editor of a New York
paper was called to testify in a Brook
lyn court as to tbe authorship of a cer
tain article in tbe paper over which bi
management extended. He stated tbe
name of tbe editor of tbe paper that
being sufficient to rest a prosecution on
Tbe judge was not satisfied ; he wished
to know tbe author of the article. The
witness wo!d not tell. 1 be judge sent
him to prison for refusing. Editors
and publishers are responsible for libel
ous articles, and authors, in cases of
prosecution, are of no account. Tbe
law only sues the owner or representa
tive of the journal publishing snob mat
ter. Tbe judge in question saw differ
ently. He is wrong in bis opinion and
in its enforcement.
A DELEGATION of mora than two

Many of oar reader ?!1 docbtlers
remember tbe particu'ara of the mur
der of Winfield S. Goes, neat Pcnning
tonvtlle, on tbe first of July, 1873;
bnt Inasmuch as the case Is oBe of pe
culiar interest, inasmuch as it involves
a plot to defraud insurance companies
IS well as a deliberate takiog of human
life for the purpose of biding the con
spiracy, we have prepared tbe following
sketch, giving a brief summary Of tbe
facts elicited at the coroner's inquest,
which implicated Wlllism . Udder
sook as tbe perpetrator of tho fearful
The facts of the Goss ease are about
these : A tuarritid man earned Winfield
S. Goss, who was in very moderate cir
cumstances, bad a life policy in the
Matual, Continental, and Knickerbock
er Companies, of $5,0C0 each, and
$10,000 in tbe Travelers' of Hartford,
making $25,000 in all. Tbe ptemium;
on these policies amounted to over $400
pet annum, a sum larger thin Goes'
annual income would apparently justify
him in carrying. During tbe winter of
l$72 tbe insure J man was reported to
btve been burned to death in bis shop ;
but tbe insurance companies believing
that all was not right, refused to pay
tbe policies, and Mrs. Goss brought
suit to recover. On tbe trial wbicb
ensued William E. Udderxook testified
that be was intimate in tbe Goss family,
and on tbe night of the disaster be had
called there with a friend and found
Goss fixing a lamp, for which be wanted
a chimney. He and bis friend went
after tbe cbimney, leaving Goss in the
sLop working at the lamp. While tbey
were gone he supposed the lamp was
npset and the building fired ; for when
tbey returned the shop was in flames,
nearly destroyed, and Goss missing.
Goss was not beard of again, but
charred human remains were fonnd
among tbe ruins, and be believed tbcy
were' ftse of Goss.
It was shown on tbe trial that Goss
had bad especially beautiful teetb.
Tbcy were such fine teetb as to attract
tbe admiration of a prominent dentist
of Baltimore, wbo made overtures to
obtain a east of fSem. 'f teeth in
tbe remains found were defective and
decayed. Tbe widow recovered tbe
full amount of the policy against tbe
Mutual, of New York. Tbe suits
against the other conipabfes are still
During the trial in court on the part
of Mrs. Gobi to recover tbe insurance
effected on ber husband's life, a brother
of Goss came forward aod presented a
watch, bearing the look of having un
dergone some fiery ordeal, and swore
that be found it in tbe ashes of the
burned building, aod also testified to
its identity as being tbe one carried by
his deceased brother.
A. Campbell Goss is a brother to
W. S. Goss. He was formerly a life
insurance sgent, aud it is believed that
it was be that conceived of the plan to
have bis brother's life insured to a large
amount in several companies, to then
proclaim his death by burning, and tbus
secure tbe amounts of bis policies of
insura'DCe, which were to have been di
vided among tbe parties engaged in the
conspiracy He has also been arrested
and held for trial.
The charred body was so mutilated
when discovered as to prevent identifi
cation, but investigation since tbe ar
rest of Udderxook bas brought to light
tbo supposition that it was resurrected
and taken to Baltimore to serve tbe
purposes of tbe offenders. It was
expedient to keep W. S. Gos absent
from Baltimore, and for seven mouths
he is believed to have spent bis time at
Newark, New Jersey, and Coopers
town, near Bryn 31awr, in Pennsylva
nia, until be was joined by Udderxook
and finally disposed of. It appears
that Wilson, alias Goss, became weary
of tbe delay and feared to return to
Baltimore lest be might be discovered.
Udderxook, being in constant dread of
bis fefftrn, is believed to bave deter
mined to take his life and thns nd him
self of bint forever. Accordingly, on
on Monday, June 30, he got off tbe
cars at Penn Station on fbe Baltimore
Central Railroad,- ra company with a
stranger, and that evening both took
lodgings at Mr. S. E. Jefferis' hotel at
Jennerville. Tbe following day be
(Udderxook) hired a horse and rode to
Penningtonville, and on (be way back
stopped at bis brother in-Iaw's, Samuel
Rhodes, and remained some time, after
which be continued bis journey.
Rhodes testifies that be endeavored
to induce him to join in the conspiracy
to tob of mfttder Goss, bst be deeided
to have nothing to do with tbe transac
tion. Rhodes made no reply to Lis
letter on tbe subject, and be thought no
more of the matter until the 1st of
July, when Udderxook put in bis per
sMial appearause at bis mother's, at
Jennerville, iu Chester county, and
from there came on to the residence of
Mr. Rhodes, bnt be not being at home,
be, with bis sister, Mr. Rhodes' wife,
went after bim at Mr. Baldwin's, where
be was harvesting, and informed him
that be bad bis friend with him at Jen
nerville, and that be wanted ,hira to
join bim in robbing bim ; that they
could procure something at the drug
store to render bim uneonscijis, when
tbe money euwJd be obtained. He de
sired Rhodes to loan bim his horse and
wagon to bring tbis friend of his. np to
bis (Rhodes') bouse, for a few days, so
that tbirdeed could be done there, to
all of which Mr. Rbodes- pervmntonlr
declined, and remarked that be bad
better abandon sucb ideas and go home.
He remarked that be was going to do
it anyhow, and left him, Coining to Pen
oirgtouviile. Hiring a bbfse and bug
gy of Mf. A. C. Baldwin, be left, say
ing be was going to Jennerville for bis
friend, to bring bim up to his sister's
for a few days. He went to Jenner
ville, got bis friend, and they were seen
to leave the village about six o'clock in
tbe eveuicg, and that was Hid last seeu
of tie man alive. Tbe horse and bug
gy were returned to Mr. Baldwin that
night about midnight, with the loss of
blankets, oil cloth, io. NotLiug was
ttcugbt about tbe loss of '.Ltse articles,
as it was presumed the min was or bad
been under the influence of liquor.
Tbe price of the blaukeU was demand
ed and was paid by Udderxook, and
thus tbe matter ended. Mr. Rbodes
disclosed bis suspicions to several of
his friends, and among the number was
G. P. Moore, who, on bunting through
tbe woods on tbe evening of Friday,
July 11th, accidentally discovered tbe
dead body of a man with the arms and
limbs both cut off; the throat cut, and
four or five stabs io the chest and body,
any one of which would bave caused
death. Wbea there faots were made
known, the buggy was carefully exam
ined, and blood was found upon it in
several places : tbe dash was btut, and
tbe leather of it torn, besides the bows
being broken, showing; that the act of
killing was done in the buggy. Iu the
buggy was found a handsome ring,
which has been identified as tbe one the
murdered man wore. The body having
lain from July 1st to July lltb, was
too much decomposed for identification
from the feature, but the general ap
pearance, size, color of bair aud whisk
ers, left no doubt that tbis was tbe
friend Udderxook left Jennerville with
on the evening of July 1st.
After returning the horse and wagon
Uddetxonk visited bis mother's house,
where b's clothing was washed, and
then left for Baltimore, where be re
mained quietly at work until his arrest
on tbe 22nd of July. He cetrayed
considerable surprise at tbe time ot his
arrest, although he expressed confident
ly his belief of proving bis innocence.
On bis way to West Chester he was dis
posed to be quite communicative, and
only ceased at tbe suggestion of tbe
sheriff. He told the story of bow be
was suspected of tbe crime in the fol
lowing words : "I came np tbe Balti
more Central Railroad one evening in
the latter part of June, and while sit
ting in tbe car a stranger asked me to
get him a drink, as he felt badly, to
which request I acceded, and from tbis
we formed a partial acqunntauce, and
89 we talked, and went to Philadelphia.
On the evening of thj 30th of June we
got.off the ears at West Grove station,
on tbe Baltimore Central Railroad, and
from there the stranger and 1 walked to
Jennerville, where we put np for the
night. During the night the man was
vrry sick, and required my attention at
intervals. The next morning I hired a
horse to take a ride, but the horse
wotrldtr't drive, so I rode bim to Pen
ningtonville, where I hired another
horse and wagon, with which I return
ed to Jennerville, leading the first
named borse. From Jennerville, in
tbe evening, I took the stranger riding,
and left hiia at Cochranville, from
which place be said be wae going to
Parkesburg, which was tbe last I saw of
tbe man. After quilting bim I drove
bacV 19 Penningtonville alone."
xbe" in-rarance companies, as well as
tbe ctficcrs of the Commonwealth, Dave
been actively engaged in securing tes.
timony, and they bave long since gath
ered a mass of circumstantial evidence
of the most startling character. Link
by lick the kben-eyed detectives bave
forged a chain which forms a circle so
near complete that it will be difficult to
imagine by those not versed in tbe law,
wbat plausible plea can be urged in bis
defttce by bis distinguished counsel.
The trial commenced yesterday, Octo
Tbis is unquestionably one of tbe
most interesting murder trials ever beld
in Chester county, and one in which tbe
citizens of Baltimore also feel a special
interest. It is almost like a romance
in its details. The seal ring and the
set of teeth will be important yet silent
witnesses, and tbere is a wonderful sim
ilarity in the fact that tbe body of the
murdered man seemed to have been al
most as skilfully dissected before bu
rial as if it had passed through the
bands of an experienced surgeon, as
probably did the shapeless trunk wbicb
was palmed off as the remains of Goss
after the burning of bis shop in Balti
more in the winter of 1872. It would
be difficult to imagine the dreadful ter
ror of those who were implicated in the
plot to defraud tbi Insurance compan
ies and tbe accidental discovery of
tbe remains of the murdered man
through the agency of buxxards, wbo
literally picked them from their shallow
grave, recalls the story of Eugene
Aram, whose victim, first covered with
leaves and branches, was exposed by tbe
winds and storms of heaven, was then
washed from bis grave by heavy rains,
and finally the river in which the body
was tunk became dry. How true it is
that murder will oat, even though years
oiay elapse before tbe majesty of fbe
law may be fully vindicated. And yet
bow difficult it is for jurymen to decide
on merely circumstantial evidence, no
matter bow plainly it may point to the
offender. Justice U inclined to believe
every man innocent until be is proved
guilty ; aud William E. Udderxook
may rest assured that in euligbteoed
Pennsylvania, and in tbe county of
Chester, so rentrw-icd for its- intelli
gence and iearning, he will bave a fair
and impaftial bearing. Kindness, ben
evolecee, lnd charity arc the charac
teristics of in any of its citifens, and yet,
with all their forbearance' and generos
ity, p-rhspS no community in tbe Com
monwealth are more iu favor of condign
punishment when it is well deserved.

is surrounded by a gilt oval, and the
whole by an ornamental border in gold.
At the bead of tbe picture is the Amer

clutching in its talons tbe starry ban
banner. Under each portrait is tbe
name of tbe President it represents,

and tLe year be served. At tSe bot

mounted ou extra thick photographic
card-board, ready for framing. As wt
said before, this picture should be in
every boose in tbe land, not only as an
incentive to the rising generation to
emulate tbe example of these great
