THE CRONIN MURDER.1
IMPORTANT TESTIMONY ADDUCED. AT
TILE CORONER'S INQUEST.
Detective Coughlin Wanted to Hire a
Tough to "Slug" Dr. Cronin-Alexan
der Sullivan Intimated that He Ought
to be Exterminated-Additional Arrests.
('imeAco, .June 11.-In the Cronin in
quest this morning, John C. Garrity, a
saloon keeper, testified that he was ac
quainted with Detective Coughlin, under
indictment for complicity in the assas
sination. Witness declared that Cough
lin came to him and said he wanted to
hire a tough character, known as
"Major" Sampson, to slug a man. Wit
ness told Sampson about it, and a few
days later Sampson told him (Garrity)
that the man Coughlin wanted slugged
was Dr. Cronin. He wanted him slugged
with a baseball bat and disfigured for
life. If it lIlled him it would not make
J. T. Haggerty, a railroad clerk, gave
the most important testimony this morn
ing. After the trial of Cronin, he said,
Alexander Sullivan told him that Cronin
was a scoundrel and a menace to the
Irish cause. It was the impression of
wituess that Sullivan was trying to ex
press the opinion that Cronin should be
exterminated. Witness was of the same
opinion at that time. About that time
a circular had been issued saying that
many Scotland Yard detectives had left
England for America to attempt to find
out some of the secrets of the order, and
every member was on the lookout for
informers. Tim Crane. who has since
ied, circulated a statement that Cronin
was a dangerous man and a traitor.
At that time Sullivan was not alone
in his opinion. Le Caron, who was a
friend of Sullivan, was a member of the
committee which tried Cronin. He was
introduced to witness by Sullivan at the
trial as a man worthy of confidence in
the Irish cause. He was opposed to
Cronin at the time, on account of the
statements of Alexander Sullivan.
It was given on reliable authority at
an early hour this morning that James
Moran, a driver in the employ of the ice
firm of McGinnis & Moran of Lake View,
was arrested last night and is held at
the Central Police Station as a witness
in the Cronin murder case. What Moran
knows about the case could not be
learned from the police, but they said
he is a very iniportant witness and his
arrest in all probability would be fol
lowed by several more. It is alleged
that on the evening of Dr. Cronin's dis
appearance, Moran, in company with
another man, was keen in the vicinity of
the Carlson cottage. He is also said to
be a member of the United Brotherhood
and.prominent in Clan-na-Gael circles,
and that he was intimate with Detective
Coughlin and P. 0. Sullivan. who are
now under arrest for complicity in the
murder of Dr. Cronin.
It is also stated that, in addition to

Thomas Morgan and Patrick Gannon,
a bartender, were also placed under ar

TWO SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN NEW YORK.
NEW YoRK, June 11.-Acting upon
instructions from the Chicago police,
Inspector Byrnes to-day caused the ar
rest of John Maroney and Charles Mc
Donald, two men whom he has
been shadowing for suspected coupt
plicity in the murder of Dr. Cronin.
The men are now at police headquarters

Alexander Sullivan declined to see
any callers at the jail this morning ex
cept his law partners. None of the

'text or another gained admittance

an excursion party from Armagh has
been wrecked near that place. Twenty
persons were killed and a number in

DUBLIN, June 12.-Further dispatches
from Armagh show that the accident
was far more serious than at first re

A PATRIOTIC ORGANIZATION.
Northern and Southern Veterans to Unite
to Promote Peace and Destroy Section
It will be remembered that on his way
home from the Washington centennial
Gov. Gordon stopped in Elizabeth, N. J.,
as the guest of the Drake Zouaves.
There was a great public demonstration
in his honor. The speeches of Gov.
Gordon and Gen. J. Madison Drake at
tracted attention all ove1 the country by
their fraternal spirit and the breadth of
their patriotic sentiments.
This incident and these speeches sug
gested to a prominent citizen of St.
Louis, whose name is not given, a plan
for the organization of an association
which should have for its basis Amer
camnsm, and for its object the oblitera
tion of sectional prejudices and animos
ities. It contemplates the bringing to
gether in this association of veterans of
both armies who feel that the war is over
and that it is the duty of patriotic cit
izen; North and South to forget its
passions. The plan has been sub
mitted to Gen. Drake and Governor
Gordon, and has received the unquali
fied anproval of both. Gen. Drake. in
a letter to the author of the movement,
says: "As my soul is wrapped up in
love for this country, i am anxious to see
those who participated in the great
struggle of 186t-65 finally united in an
effort to secure the peace which politi
cians cannot give. No soldier should
hesitate to keep the conmand of him
who has gone before-'Let us have
peace.' - Let those who wore the blue
and the gray take the initiative in form
ing an association that shall 'promote
peace and destroy sectionalism,' as Col.
.Jones aptly puts it, and when fully or
ganized the qjuestion of admitting civil
ians can better be decided."
Gen. Drake suggests that local organi
zations be formed at once by those who
are in accord with this idea and he pro
poses "American Veterans' Union" as a
name for the general association.
Gen. Gordon writes to Gen. Drake as
'"THE GOvERNoItS OFFICE,
"ATLANTA,'GA., May 27, 1589.
"Gen. J. Madison Drake, Elizabeth,
N. J.: I appreciate most filly your let
ter of May 20, and am in- full accord
with the movement to organize the
veterans of both armies on the basis of
principles and sentiments announced by
myself in my speech in the Zouaves'
armory at Elizabeth. I esteem this as
one of the greatest compliments ever
paid me, and believe that such an or
ganization as you and others suggest
will be productive of vast good to the
future of our country. With my hearty
good wishes for the success of the cause
of peace and fraternity, I am most truly
yours, J. B. GORDON."
There are thousands of old soldiers
North and South who are ready to co
operate in any movement that aims at a
complete healing of all sectional differ
ences. The plan to which General
Drake and Governor Gordon have given
their endorsement is practical and may
result in a grand organization. All that
is needed to insure its success is for a
few representative men in each section
to take the lead. General Drake and
Governor Gordon are willing and anx
ious to do all they can to assist in this
laudable movement. We have no doubt
that they .will find efficient lieutenants
and a host of volunteers for the Grand
Army of Peace.-Macon Telegraph.

UNHAPPY SOUTH CAROLINA R&DE.
How Chairman Brayton Was Snubbed
by the President-"Independents" to
WASHINGTON, June 9.-South Carolina
Republicans are rapidly joining their
brethren from other States who have
come here convinced that Benjamin
Harrison is the greatest President who
ever occupied the White House, and
have gone back to their homes with that
confidence so rudely shattered that its
restoration would be little short of a
miracle. Like a good many thousand
other Republicans, the South Carolinians
find fault with the slowness of the Presi
dent in finding places for members of
his party, but they have an added griev
ance because they think General Har
rison is listening too attentively to
the advice of persons they re
gard as impertinent intermeddlers.
Some time ago E. M. Brayton, Chair
man of the Republican State Compmittee
and the South Carolina member of the
National Committee, came to Washing
ton to look after the interests of his
State in the general distribution of pat
ronage. It seemed to him that his po
sition on the State and National Com
mittees entitled him to some considera
tion at the hands of the appointing power,
but Mr. Brayton found it somewhat slow
work. He has not been able to make
many recommendations, and such as
he has made have not always . been ef
fective. Recently Mr. Brayton sent a
note to the White House requesting the
honor of an audience with the President
to talk over South Carolina matters.
After waiting two days he received the
reply that the President would receive
him during the regular reception hours.
It sounded to the chairman and his
friends very much like an unnecessary
But what made it particularly un
pleasant was the fact that, a few days
ago, President Harrison gave an au
dience to Mr. L. Edwin Dudley, Sec
retary of theLaw and Order League of
Massachusetts, whose mission was to
tell the President who should be given
offices in South Carolina. Mr. Dudley
has been in South Carolina, as the rep
resentative of the Massachusetts Club,
to look into the political situation. There
the eminent Republicans composing
that organization have had an idea that
South Carolina can be made a Repub
lican State, and for some time they
have been supporting a litte paper in
Columbia for the dissemination of their
political' views. Mr. Dudley found a
.collection of dissatisfied men of both
parties organized as "Independents,"
and lie concluded that these were the
men through whom South Carolina
was to be changed into a Republican
One of the chief political offices in the
State -is that of Collector of Internal
Revenue. The regular Republicans want
this office to go to E. A. Webster of
Orangeburg. The "Independents" have
a candidate in the person of George G.
Alexander, who is a Democratic State
Senator. Mr. Dudley has told the Pres
ident that the way to carry South Caro
lina is to give the "Independents" all
they ask for, and the Republicans un
derstand that Mr. Alexander stands-an
excellent chance of being made Collec
tor. It is not a pleasant prospect for the

A CHILD LOST IN THE WOODS.
Three Days and Two Nights in a Pitiless
Storm-Rescued Alive and Unharmed.,
Sn 'vEConn., June 10.- An ex
traordinary stoF M''~Sin the woods
is reported from the charcoal 'trict on
Salisbury Mountain, near Jealls vi age.
Four miles from the settlement, in the
thickest of the mountain woods, is an
encampment of charcoal burners, among
them being Androw Fowler. On Thurs
day two little children of Fowler's wan
dered from the paternal hut. The old
est one was readily found, but the otlie'r,
a child ot 3 years, became frightened
and strayed so far away as to become
lost. All attempts to discover it were
futile, and when ihe storms of Friday
andi Saturday set in it was not doubted
thbthe little one would die from expos
'ihe excitement among the burners be
came intense, and a searching party was
orgaized, comprising 185 men, who,
with flaming torches and lanterns,
scoured the woods and mountain sides
for miles around. It was not until 2
o'clocik on Saturday afternoon that their
search was rewarded. Then - the child
was found in a secluded nook in a mossy
glen, where it had fallen. The little
thing was without stockings, shoes or
at, and had been out in the woods f or
three days and two nights, crawling
here and there, without any protection
from the pitiless storm which raged al
most incessantly. Strange to say, the
child was apparently unharmed, and did
not appear to be much the worse for its
thrifling and hazardous adventure.
During the search on the mountain a
number of the men became lost in the
forest themselves, so dense is the growth
of timber, and it was some time before
all were accounted for by roll call. The
hardy fellows then ranged themselves in
line, and such was the desire to see the
tough little specimen of humanity that
had withstood so many hardships that
the child, after being fed, was wrapped
in a blanket and passed along the line
to be looked at. It was greeted with
The Price of Labor.
Northern papers frequently allege that
one reason that the South can make-pig
iror r-heaper than it can be made in their
section is that labor is cheaper here.
Papers of a strong Republican bias are
fond of dwelling on that idea, and en
deavor to make it appear that some op
pression is practiced on the negro in
order to enable us to manufacture cheap.
The statement is altogether erroneous.
The fact is that we pay better prices for
abor here than arc paid by the Northern
furnaces. The cost of labor employed in
making a ton of pig-iron in the furnaces
she-Birmingham varies from $1.60 to
1.30, whereas in Pennsylvania it is
rarely higher than $1.40. We present
these figures to the consideration of the
ronie-Telegraph of Pittsburg, which
mas recently said that the cheapness of
Southern labor is one of the principal
reasons for the cheapness of Southern
ron. As we have remarked before, ne
ro labor is as available to Pennsyl
ania as it is to Alabama. They have
mported Hungarianis and Italians in
arge numbers to the former State, and
would certainly come South for negroes
.f negroes could be had cheaper. Iron

which is not the case at the North.

Consumption Curable and Not Inherited
The recently published statement of
Drs. Prudden, Biggs and Loomis to the
New York Board of Health in regard to
the contagiousness of pulmonary tuber
culosis (consumption) and the means of
protection therefrom contains useful in
formation that merits the attention of
every man, woman and child in the land.
Briefly put, the substance of the state
ment is that consumption is not inher
ited, is distinctly preventible and is
often cured. Tuberculosis is very com
mon. Domestic animals, and especially
cattle, are frequently affected by it.
About one-fourth of the deaths of grown
persons are caused by it and nearly one
half of the entire population acquire it
at one time or another during life. It is
caused by a living germ, the tubercle
bacillus, which finds its - way into the
body and multiplies there, if the condi
tions favor, producing tubereles. These
tubercles soften and give out a discharge
containing the living germs, which
is thrown off from the body. When the
tubercles are in the lungs. constituting
"consumption." the expectoration con
sists largely of these fatal germs. The
latter do not grow outside the body, but
they retain their vitality and virulence
for a long time, even when thoroughly
dried. It is when dried and floating in
the air as an impalpable dust that they
are most dangerous. Consumption is
commonly produced by breathing air in
which the living germs are suspended as
dust. The origin of the poison, as al
ready stated, is chiefly in the expectora
tion of persons suffering from consu'np
tion. They cough up a sputum which
contains germs in enormous quantities.
This is deposited in places where it after
wards dries, as on floors, carpets, cloth
ing, handkerchiefs, &e. When dry it
readily breaks up into minute bits which
float in the air as dust. The entire sur:
ioundings ot consumptive patients are
made poisonous with this dust. Repeated
experiments show that the dust gathered
from almost any part of a hospital ward,
asylum, prison or private house where
a consumptive resides will produce
tuberculosis in animals inoculated with
it, while the dust from places where the
disease does not exist has no such effect
It is important to note that the breath
of a person having consumption does
not communicate the disease, nor does
the spit of the consumptive patient com
municate it so lor:g as it is retained in
its receptacle in a moist state. It is only
when it dries and is scattered by cur
rents of air that it is dangerous. The
prevalent belief that consumption is
hereditary is due to the fact that the
children of consumptives are more than
others exposed to the tubercle bacilli,
which find the way to their lungs from
handkerchiefs, carpets, floors and
the clothing of the afflicted parent.
It is conceled to be likely that the
child may inherit a weak condi
tion of the lungs, which renders
it more liable than another to succumb,
but it is now known that the disease it
self can be caused only by the entrance
of the germ into the body. It may enter
otherwise than by way of the lungs. It
may be transmitted by meat or milk
from animals suffering from tubercu
losis. The milk of cows, whose lungs
are affected, often contains the living.
tubercle bacillus, and the need of cau
tion in the purchase of milk is empha
sized by the fact that 20 or 30 per cent.
of stall-fed cows have the disea ---knf""
ing the mil d t oroughly cooking the
"tat estroys the germs, and this is a
precaution that should never be omitted
when there is any reason to suspect one's
milk or beef supplies. Consuraption is,
however, asa rule, communicated from
man to man through the medium of the
pernicious dust whose origin we have de
scribed. To prevent the formation of this
dust by preventing the drying of the ex
pectorations of consump.tive persons is.
therefore, the only effective means of
preventing the extension of consump
tion to those about the patient and of
curing the patient himself. The pat ent
may :diminish his chances of recovery
be done? Only this to buirn the spittle
of the consumptive person before it has
had time to dry. Handkerchiefs should
be boiled very soon after be-ing~ used by
a consumptive person; in his hands they
are extremely dangerous articles. Ex
pectoration on the floor or porch should
not of course be thought of for a mo
ment. In a word, the cure and prev en
tion of consumption lie in jealous and
uninterrupted personal cleanliness
