THE lDOOMI OF CLU% ERIUS.
No Apparent Chance. tor Him to Egocape the
Gallows--muething, of the Urime ie Cow
The ease of Thomas J. Chiverius, con
victed of the murder of Fannie Lillian
Madison. has attracted widespread atten
tion. As the facts of the case may have
#dssed out of recollection, a brief state
ment may now be proper. On the 13th
March, 1885, at 3 o'clock, a. m1., Miss
Fannie Lillian 'Madison arrived in Rich
mond from Bath county and went to the
American Hotel, where she registered as
"Miss F. L. Merton." Next morning
her dead body was found in the old city
reservoir, a short distance west of Holly
vwood cemetery. On the 18th, near
Little Plymouth. in the county of King
and Queen, her first cousin, T. J. Cluve
rins (Kla-veers), was arrested, charged
with the murder of the deceased. He
waived an examination before the Police
Justice, was indicted in April, and was
brought to trial in the Hustings Court of
-Richmond at the May term. On'the 4th
day of JIune the jury returned a verdict
The case went to the Court of Appeals,
the decision of which was adverse to the
prisoner-as already published.
The Richmond papers give some addi
'donal particulars of the result of the
case in the Court of Appeals. The judg
ment of the lower court is sustained in
all particulars. Little or no surprise
was manifested at the decision; in fact,
public opinion had been very well settled
upon the presumption that no new hear
ing would be granted. For over a week
the air has been full of rumors that the
court stood four to one against a new
trial, and that two of the four disagreed
-only as to the certain particulars, and
for once rumor was correct. How these
facts leaked out is not known, or wheth
er it was only one of the lucky surmises
of those who are supposed to know
everything. After the reading of the
opinion of the court, as expressed, had
been arrived at after a very patient and
searching review of all the facts as set
forth at the time of the trial, and -%as
supported by copious quotations and
references to the most learned and com
petent authorities. Thus is ended anoth
e'act in the great tragedy which shocked
a continent and for a time made Rich
moid unenviably famous.
. Cluverius knew what the decision of
the court would be at least one hour be
fore Judge Fauntleroy finished reading
.the opinion. The first few pages that
were read indicated a decision unfavora
ble to the prisoner, and about half-past
12.o'cloek Mr. McGeorge, a feed dealer,
dqing business in Richmond, left the
court room and went down to the jail.
4:vas he who told Cluverius how the
case would be decided, but it was after
t* o'clock before the prisoner was
aware that the Supreme Court had sus
tafiked the decision of the lower court on
every point that was raised by the pris
When the action of the court was
. d own to him he never trembled
or moved a muscle, except perhaps a little
twitching of the facial muscles, and this
soon passed away, giving place to that
sternness and self-control which has ex
cilpa so-much wonder, and has been a
Jzr~e to so many. When he heard the
words, "The decision is unfavorable to
you," lie raised his eyes, which had
been gazing at the floor, and, in a clear
-v'oie said, "I am surprised." Here he
paused, an<ctthe silence seemed as pain
ful to thoefwho saw the prisoner as it
was tethe prisoner himself. Presently
he qnalified his remnarks, and in a voice
more trombling than at any time hereto
fore, he remarked, "I had hoped for
- Sergeant Lee subsequently said: "Mr.
Cluverius, I will now have to put you in
solitary confinement. Your treatment
herefter must be somewhat different
from what it has been, and it is my duty
to have you put in solitary confinement
and a guard placed at your cell."
.Cluverius looked up at Sergeant Lee
and replied: "Sergeant, I make no ob
jection. I have tried not to give trouble
to anyone in this jail and I will continue
not to do so."
The only hope now left to the prisozer
is executive clemency, for unless the
Governor interferes, Cluverius will pay
the penalty of his crime upon the scaf
The action of the Supreme Cdurt will
doubtless be certified to the Hustings
Court before the June term, and when
that is done the~ prisoner will be brought
up to be resentenced.
Something for t he G rIs'.
Every housekeeper knows how careful
treatment keeps table-linen and house
hold furniture. Girls do not always
know or remember that great care of
their own little possessions will often
enable them to dress nicely on very little 1
money. A lady says:
~When I was a girl there was one of
mj young friends who was distinguishcd
for mak'ng her things last.' Her dress,
hats, gloves and ribbons were a marvel
of darability. I used to wonder how
she managed to make them last so with
oup~ their looking shabby, but I ceased
to'do so after I had visited her at her
own home. The reason why her clothes
'wore-so long was that she took such good
care of them. Her dresses were br?ushed
and fealed away carefully, and the
slightest spot on them was removed ast
soon as it was discovered. Her hat was,
wrapped in an old pocket handkerchief,
and put away in a box as soon as done
with, the strings and laces being straight
ened and roiled out most symmetrically
each time. Hecr gloves were never fold
ed together, but were pulled out straightr
and laid fiat in a b)ox, one upo' ite oth
er, each time they were used, time tiniest
hole being mended almost before it had f
time to show itself. But the thing that
impressed me most was the care she be- C
stowed on her ribbons. When making t
up bows she used to line the upj~er part I
of the ribbon with white paper, and this t
not only preveutedi the ribbon from be
cominghlmp and creased, but kept it ~
clean, so that when the bow was sie
on one side she eenid turn the ribbon, r
and the ribbon. and the part that had c
been covered came ""t Looking new and rD

Twenty Liepi Lost in hansas City--Factory
Girl1 Buried inz the Busiu of Their HU:lndin:
The Street Perfect Riher%.
A fearful storm of wind and rain swept
ever Kans City, Missouri, .n the 11th
inst. continuing from 11 o'clock till
nooln. The court house on SecOnld
street was totally demolished above the
second story. The Lathrop school build
illg on Ei"hth strCt was partially wreek
ei and many chil dren caught in the
ruins. An overall factory on Second
street was blown down. The old water
works building near the court house was
blown down. At the Western Union
telegraph office but one i ire is working
out of the citv. Communication has
been established with St. Louis over that
wire by way of Dallas, Galveston, New
Orleans and Memphis. One span at the
North end of the railroad bridge aeross
the Missouri River was blown into the
river, block:ng the Hannibal and St.
Joseph. Rock Island. Wabash and Kan
sas City. St. Joe and Council Blifts
Roads. Eight girls have been taken out
of the overall factory, four of whom are
dead: many others are in the ruins, but
there is scarcely a hope for their lives.
In the confusion it is impossible to ascer
tain definitely the extent of the calamity,
but it is said that over twenty employees
are imprisoned in the basement of the
factory. The disastrous fury of the
storm was confined to the north end of
the city except in the destruction of the
Lathrope school building on Eighth
street. The buildings generally except
ing those mentioned withstood the fury
of the storm.
As nearly as can be learned amid the
iutense excitement and confusion, about
tw enty persons are known to be' dead.
At the Lathrope school eleven children
are reported dead. Of the four build
ings wrecked all were more or less un
sound. The school building has been
twice condemned and the court house
bv many was considered unsafe. No
one was killed except in these four
houses. The storm, although entailing
such heavy loss of life, was nothing of
the nature of the tornado that visited the
city three years ago. It was a violent
wind, accompanied by a flood of water
and heavy hail, which turned many
streets into rivers. Signs, shutters,
chimneys, etc., were blown with the
gale and a large number of vehicles
were overturned in the streets. The
black clouds that rolled over the city
created almost the darkness of night and
made timid ones crouch in terror in cel
lars. The streets were entirely deserted,
and in some instances horses were seen
wandering about attached to vehicles
and seeking refuge from the pelting
