nssci-t that a majority' of the members of

In tho city nnd tho outside wards on
Thursday, AUeiist 1.
Tho committee hegitn Its meetlni; nt 11
n. 111., with nil the twenty-three members
present or represented by proxies. It was
the liveliest committee iiiccllwr ever held
In Kansas City. Several ot the members
ucd profane nnd threatening InnnttnKc to
ward each other, nml nourished their lists
In dangerous proximity to each other's
The follonliiR members of the committee
were present; .lames Penderpast, First
ward; Ci. .1, 1'lcrce, Second ward; Kred
Memfnc.Thlrd ward; Mil T. Collins, Fourth

The following were present with proxies:
Deputy SherlfT Thomas Oieasou, for W, X.
Southern, Jr., of the south side of Illue
t vnshlp; Deputy Circuit Clerk T. 11.

Anderson, of the Twelfth wnrd: Deputy
SherlfT Frank tl. (luttrell, for O, It. Dewls,
of Pntlrle township: Deputy Sheriff I'. II.
Howler, for James Thompson, of Van Uu
It Is said hv the friends of Mnrcv K.
Ilrown that SherlfT O'Neill has had his
deputies In tho country precincts for the
last three days, vlxltimr tho country com
mitteemen for the purpose of securing tho
proxies used by them and theother emis
saries of the KoldbUKS at yesterday's meet
ing of the committee. O'Neill was deter
mined to do more than uld tho Koltlbitirs
to prevent tho holding of tho proposed pri
maries and county convention. The friend.
Milp that has existed between the sheriff
'and Marcy K. Ilrown for years was broken
a few days ago, and they now pass each
other by In silence, while exchanging an
gry glances. Their estrangement was
caused, It Is said, by the refuwil of Marcy
K, Brown to permit Marshal Keshlenr to
appoint some of O'Neill's friends as deputy
As soon as the committee was called to
order Fred Fleming, of tho mih-commltt-e.
appointed nt the previous meeting to visit
Recorder ot Voters Arnold and ascertain
from him If tho poll books could be ob
tained to be used at ballot primaries In
the city In case the committee should de
cide to hold such primaries, reported for
himself nnd Committeeman I'endergnxt
that the liooks could not be obtained. He
said the election law does pot provide for
holding primaries to elect delegates to con
ventions nt which no nominations for pub
lic olllces are to bo made, and gave a num
ber of other reasons why Recorder Ar
nold would not permit the committee to
use the poll books. He said the principal
reason why ballot primaries could not bo
held was that the eommltttee had no mon
ey to pay Judges and clerks.
Joe Shannon, the third member of the
committee, submitted a minority report, in
which he advised the committee to hold
ballot primaries regardless ot the fact
that tho election law will not apply and
the scarcity of funds.
Finis Farr. Frank Walsh and others of
the goldbugs urged tho adoption of Shan
nons report. Fred Fleming thereupon took
the door In behalf of his own report. Ho
was sustained by Chief ot Detectives Mur
phy and other tree silver members of tho
Committee, Finally a vote was taken upon
the proposition to substitute Shannon's
minority report for the majority report.
Chairman Ilrown declared the minority re
port lost by a vote of 1) ayes and It nays.
This statement was disputed by Secretary
Henry i nnviuril, wuo Claimed null It was
adopted by a vote of 12 nyes to 11 nays.
Chairman Brown then called for a vote
upoii the majority report. Only sixteen of
the twenty-three members and proxies
voted, and Chairman Drown claimed that
fourteen cast their votes for the majority
report. This was disputed, and another
vote was taken. It was claimed by Chair
man Drown that the vote of tt nyes and 9
nays, and Secretary Crawford anil the
goldbugs asserted that only eleven votes
were cast for the report and twelvo votes
were cast against it. Chairman Drown de
clared tlio report adopted.
Captain M. W. Anderson, of Blue town
ship, who is one of the free silver members
of tho committee, jumped up at this stago
ot the proceedings and snid that It was
plainly apparent lo him that a minority
faction had como to the meeting upon prox
ies for tho sole purpose of creating dis
turbance. Joe Shannon made a remark
that angered Captain Anderson, and ho
reached across tho tablo and shook his
list In the Ninth wnrd boss" face, and
threatened to make mincemeat of him If
lie ever again mmlo an Insulting remark
to him or about him. The anger became
contagious, and It looked for a. few mo
ments as though the meeting would break
up In it free-for-all list tight.
After partial quiet was obtained Chief of
Detectives Con .Murphy Introduced tho fol
"Resolved. That delegates to the Demo
cratic county convention, which meets at

for this document that ballo pr mar es
he held In the Third, Seventh, Wghth,
Ninth and Tenth wards, and that the com
mlttee employ men lo go to the olilcc i of
the recorder of vo ers and copy the poll

copying could not be done In time to per
mil of the books beintf used at the pr.
marles. Several other members of the
committee made speeches.
A vote was llnallv taken upon the reso
lution. Chairman Brown declared that ft
was adopted, and Secretary Crawford con.
tended that It was lost. Chairman .Ilrown
said thirteen votes were cast for the res
olution and Secretary Crawford said his
record showed that only ten votes had
been cast for it, and that thirteen votes
were cast against it. A long and ucrl
monlous wrangle ensued, In which Brown,
Murphy. Fleming, Walsh, Shannon. Ander
bon and others participated. Finally, a
motion to adjourn was made, but before a
vote could be taken upon it, Deputy Cir
cuit Clerk Slmms Jumped up and read
the following preamble and resolutions:

A BOON FOR WOMEN,
Dr. Ilitrtmaii'n tlre.it Itemedy n it I'rc
script Inn fur Wornniit Hmneii,
It has been a well known fact for year
that the Tinted States contains thousands
and ten.i of thousand. of tired, nervous,
fretful women. They nre no! nclually sick,
but so languid and frail and hnggiird that
life seems to hnve lol nil of Its pleasure
for them, and those who live with them
nre sometime worried almost Inlo tho
same condition by hearing their InceVnnt
complaint. Hut It seems lo the poor suf
ferer that nothing goes right; that every
body they como In contact with Is opposed
lo them, nnd, ns a consequence, they are
fretful and Irritable.
It Is to such women as this that lV-ru-na
comes a. a blessing In a time ot the great
est need. By making a thorounh. triat of
this prince of remedies- they will soon be
made to realize Its great worth and will
never be without It again. It will bring
back to their wasted cheeks the plump
ness and bright color or perfect health,
remove from their Jaded minds nit or the
prejudices and worries with which they
have been surferltig, and give them a
buoyancy of step and sparkle of eyo that
only the best of henllli ever brings.

under whom all elements can be In concord
and harmony, to wage tho coming battle;
Whereas, the: Democracy of Jackson
county have the highest confidence In tho
Integrity and nblliu, nnd political neuinen,
or the lion. (Icorge M, Shelley; therefore,
Unsolved, By the Democratic committee
of Jackson county, Mo., without the slight
est rellectlon upon the honesty, ability or
fairness or the present rhnlrman of this
committee, but with an eye single to the
true Interests of the Democratic parly, and
with a view to harmonising all elements
therein, that tho olllco of chairman ut the
Democratic committee of Jackson coun
ty, Mo., is hereby declared vacant, and that
tho said committee now proceed to elect
to snld vacancy the Hon. Ueorge M. Shel
ley. "That Is n scheme of the enemies ot
Shelley and of silver," shouted Con Mur
phy, who Is Commissioner Shelley's partner
In the dry goods business. "Oeorge Shelley
wouldn't accept the chairmanship of this
committee. He don't want It and won't
have It. The frleiids of silver are iill to
gether here, but you are trying lo make It
appear that there Is trouble between us,"
As soon as Chief of Detectives Murphy
had stopped talking, Slmms demanded that
a. vote be taken upon his n solution. In
this demand he was seconded by Walsh,
Shannon, Jim ilariicr and other". Chair
man Brown refused to order a vote upon
the resolution, claiming that the resolution
Introduced by Murphy had been adopted.
Secretary Crawford thereupon called for a
As to whether the Slmms resolution, oust
ing Chairman Ilrown from the committee,
was adopted or defeated the stories of the
free silver members ot the committee and
tho goldbug members nnd proxies are at va
riance. The goldbugs assert that the fol
lowing twelvo of the twenty-three members
and proxies voted for the ousting resolu
tion: Pierce, of the Second ward; Garner,
of the Seventh ward; Shannon, of (he Ninth
ward; Walsh, of the Twelfth ward; Oalla
gher, of the Fourteenth ward; Allen, of tho
Eleventh ward; (Benson, from Blue town
ship; Owens, from Ft. Osage township; Oat
troll, Slmms and Uowler, proxies for coun
try members. Marcy K. Brown and his
friends claim that J. II. Owens, of Fort
Osago township, and Frank Allen, of the
Eleventh ward, did not vote for the Slmms
Secretary Crawford said lifter the meet
ing that tho resolution Introduced by Chief
of Detectives Murphy was not adopted, iind
that tho Slmms resolution was adopted.
He also said that, as the committee did not
adopt tho -Murphy resolution, the proposed
primaries cannot be held, except outside
of the authority ot the committee. He will
not, he said, sign the olllclal call for the
primaries. "I shall wait until Chairman
Shelley returns to the city before taking
any action. If he wants to call another
meeting of the committee to take action
concerning the primaries and county con
vention I shall co-operate with him. Mar
cy K. Brown Is no longer chairman, and of
crfnrse, as secretary of the committee, r
cannot recognize his pretended right to act
frank P. Walsh said last night: "I have
been put In a fuNo attitude by my par
ticipation in the last two meetings of the
county committee. I am not a goldbug
hut an anti-Brown bug. At the meeting to
day 1 objected to the slate of names in the
Murphy resolution of persons selected lo
call the mob primaries to order, nnd my
light was for the purpose of breaking that
slate and selecting other men to do the
calling to order, i moved as a substitute
for the resolution that tho committee take
up each ward In regular order and that
names be proposed and voted upon. Marev
K. Brown refused to put the motion and
declared It out of order. 1 then appealed
from the decision of the chair and was sus
tained. Notwithstanding that I was sus
tained, Brown and his eiowd proceeded to
carry out their cut and dried programme.
It was then that the trouble began. The
cause of free silver hasn't a more ardent
advocate in Kansas City than I mi, and
all I object to is the domination of Marcy
K. Brown and some others who have been
running the county committee."

Mr. Tuck was seen yesterday after
noon by a reiKirler for Hie Journal and
itskod eoticernliiR Holmes, In reply lo
the Inquiries he said:
"Yes, sir, I know Mr. Holmes) very
well, ns I was In hla employ for several
months in Chicago. The store was lo
cated nt the corner of Seventy-third nnd
Wallace streets; It Is also called by the
number of 701 West Sixty-third street.
I went to Ills place to begin work In April,
1SSD. He hud nt that time some other
clerks who looked after the Jewelry de
partment. I was to look after the
prescription business. I met him at the
door us I went In nnd he Informed tne
In a hurried manner that he was called
to Toronto and would be gone for ten
days nnd told me lo go In ami go lo
work. I went In and found that Mr.
Connors nnd his wife were employed
there In the jewelry department, t went
to work nt once anil did not see Holmes
ucnlit for fully ten days.
"During the time I was employed by
him he was nbsent a great deal of tho
time, making trips to various places. He
was called doctor by the people around
the stoic but I never knew of him hav
Iiib: an olllco or doing any practice. 1
considered It a nickname and culled him
"Holmes and Ills wife and housekeep
er, Mrs. Doonils, lived In their rooms
over the store, Mr. and Mrs. Connors
also hnd rooms over the store, nnd after
I was employed there I took my wife
ami daughter there and We had
four rooms over the store. Mrs.
Holmes was a quiet little woman and
appeared to think that Holmes wns all
right. 1 do not believe she knew ot his
"Holmes also had n man employed
there to help 111 his work. A sort of
man Friday, as It were. He was named
Latimer and they were very close
friends nml were together constantly
.vhllt' Holmes was at home.
"After I had been in his employ for
a time I saw he was using many schemes
In trading that were Very shaky and 1
did not like It, and after I had found
that he had many articles stored away
In the various rooms of the building that
were evidently in hiding I determined to
quit his employ and In January, 1S90, I
left him. After I had secured three
other positions nnd had been suddenly
dropped I began to suspect that Holmes
was doing mo un injustice, for the rea
son that ns soon as I was let out he would
hunt me up and offer mo employment
again. Tho fourth time I secured em
ployment was with an old friend and ho
told me that Holmes Was the cnuse of
my getting let out nnd so I bail him ar
rested and be signed an agreement with
mo to interfere no further in my affairs.
He was glad to sign It and not have the
"One reason for my quitting Holmes
was the fact that he was constantly
changing the name of the linn that
owned the store. It was first In his
name, then In that of his wife and then
that of his mother-in-law. He bad a
scheme for selling cigars and other
goods on commission, and in that way
secured large quantities of goods and
two soda fountains that were stored In
his cellar. He was mnklng money from
the store but he was constantly out of
cash and It took me sixty days to collect
the cash duo mo when f quit.
"The building that he occupied wns
erected by the work of himself and his
man Friday, otherwise known ns
Latimer, They did a great deal of the
work nt night, so they said. It was a
very shabby building and my folks wore
afraid to stay in it. The rumble of the
trains going by would cause It to shake
very much. At that time it was but
two stories high.
"Holmes was the greatest man io stny
up nights I ever knew. He appeared to
lit up all the time. One night I was
called to sell some goods and in going
down tlio hall I tound him nnd Latimer
with the Moor of the second slory torn
up, They were tilling the space between
the floors with cement to deaden the
sound. They put the door down on tho
wet cement nnd the next morning the
llonr was twisted and warped so It was
"I used that so-called secret chamber,
or scaled chamber as it Is termed, for
a sleeping room until my family arrived.
It was not really a sealed room. It was
a room built on a (leek floor so that it
wan almost Invisible from the main
body of the store. It was an odd room
and excited comment over the Ingenuity
of the man In its nrrangement.
"Now about thnt secret stairway of
which so much has been said. It was a
short way of connecting our rooms above
the store with the drug store. It wns
arranged oddly enough, to lie sure, but
I was accustomed to It and can see
nothing so peculiar concerning It. It
was so arranged that one was compelled
to pass through tho lavatory In going
upstairs and the entrance from above
was through a trap door. Possibly In
both Instances they formed a part of tho
schemes of tho man, but we used them
without suspicion while there.
"There wore two or threo vaults In
the building for tho use of Holmes, but
what w:ih In them I did not know. I
helped him on one occasion In building
one, but ho did the work principally,
with tho help of Latimer. There was
plenty of room down In tho cellar nnd It
was down In that part of tho building
that I found tho two soda fountains
Stored away that, with other things, ex
cited my suspicion that he was doing a
crooked business and caused mo to leave
"Holmes was an Ideal schemer anil
promoter. Ho was an affable and per
sistent talker and was constantly em
ployed durlnff the timo I knew him in
some kind of a scheme, lie was full of
tricks and would not hesltnto to do
fraud In his plans, as I wns soon ablo
to see. Hist wlfo was a plain woman,
very neighborly and nmlnblo and wo
never dreamed wo wore living In tho
building; with such a monster as Holmes
"We left there prior to the coming
there of any of the children or young
women whom ho Is charged with having
murdered and so we know nothing of
"At ono time lie was connected with
some scheme for tho manufacture of
pas. Indeed, wo wero given to under
stand that ho wns engaged in Its manu
facture. At another timo he wns chas
ing somo scheme for the sale of cigars
and mado some big commissions on that
and purchased two other drug stores
with the proceeds.
"from my knowledge of the man and
hia methods I feel certnln he will never
be brought to trial. Ho has many re
sources, nnd If ho ever has half a
chance ho will maUo his escape and
fool them yet. That is what I look for.
Ho must have some money from his
many transactions, and ho can secure
help from tho outside from some of his
friends and yet outwit justice."

goods just bought; they are Silks of this season that we are to
take a loss on from Si to $15 a yard, and this sale positively
ends at 1 o'clock Monday afternoon, and from that hour every
piece will return to its regular price. No goods sent on ap
proval. Think of buying S7.00 Black Moires for $i.6S $2.75
Black Silk for $r.6S. We say Si. 68, as we do not think many
of them will remain- unsold after 9:30 Monday morning. You
will find these silks on Lablcs the whole length of the silk and
black dress goods department. Extra people will be at hand
to wait upon you.
gH? It is the greatest sacnlicc ever made in this store on
silks and the same loss was never made in any other depart
ment 8$5,ooo to Go For $i,'ooo or Less
Monday at 9 A. fl.
