TripleTragedy In New Tork.
NKWY'ohic, Oct. .11.^Mrs. Jane^Nrguin, sge thirty-six, wife of I). i'A-^ward Sc.'uiii, a tinted siu ciali-t on die*^rasss of the brain, killed her three^voung chuilri 11 this allirii'^ni, and^1 theM killed herself, at No. 41, west ^'iltli^sireit. There Is no cause known for^the horrible Ussjedy, other than InsaaV^ily ol the mother. The children were^Kiiward, uge-ix years, John ssjeflvs^and Jealicltc f.nir yeais. They were^all shot MiroW/h tbi' head :tnd instantly^killed, and the neither * tlcatti was its^sudden os tln irs. The MffhtAll fce^^turex of the tragcaly was the maimer^of murder. Mr*. Sejruin t^K^k the chil^^dren to an empty spare room, at the^top of s Ave aesry bouse, m RbseMceof
herhusband ami while the servants^were eaUMpsj ill tne basement. She^locked herself iii with the chlldn. R.^and the servants IsAOVjefal they had^ci.ne out for a walk. What aap|weiid^in the room will never be known, but^when l)r. Seguin advi^cd that Mrs.^Scguin should be called at 5 o'clock,^and with bissUHpit*ioaV,aroused by Ions^sisejajjee of the family, begnu a search^01 the house, when the mother and^- children were found dead), itll shot^Uirrssgh the head. Tin- children's^hands were tied behind their backs^with whipcord, and they were blind^^folded will) hallkercliielK. From all^ap|h-araticcs, they must have lai n shot^while 11Inyi 11u at blind man's bull^They w ere dead for at least an hour^and a half, lor they were iplite cold^when dlsOOVsd.

She was^... i, slender woman, of nervous^. i' imt m. Herweeseetle life was^cry happy, and there Witt RO lanuly^trouble. Ut. Seguin r^ turned home at^seven, und SMsl hearing the dreadful^news was ultcrly prostr.itid. lie is in^yjjeof menial distress hihI under care of^physicians. Dr. Seguin is a ROted^' s|h*i'ialist in citsist of insanity; his^lather was equally so. Mis wile was a^daughter of h Masachuseits lariner and^the couple moved in the BOsI sis'icty.^The faiml.s Heed in a live-story brown-^BaSM front, Ba^Ush basement. The^house was elegantly furnished. The^riHiui in which (he tragedy took place^is en the li.th flisir and is ^ear. ely eve^^,ed by the family. The servant* in^the house notietd during the day Mis.^Seguin was iiummIv, a condition she^Jiad la-en in for several weeks, and^which Inr brother, Dr. AjsjMdb),^lurneil the blues. AlMiiit eleven he^caib-d upon In r and she said she did^not feel well. When Dr. Amidon en^^tered the room where the tragedy oc-^eurr d a horrible sight mel his eyes.^Almost in the middle of the flisir lay^the dead body of fhe eldest ls^y, Kii^^ward, ill a p'io| of blood. Partly in a^ehttsi lay Mrs. Seguin, grasping in^her right hand it beautiful pearl han^^dled revolver.^1 Inside the closet lay the boy John and^ijirl JesRsHs.

Disgracefulas it is lothe administra^^tion of the public affairs in Custer^county, it is nevertheless true, that,^notw ithstanding the large amount of^revenue received from taxes, licenses^sad other resources during the past^yeai, aggregating about $!Mi,itiiu, our^county treasury is to-day bankrupt. If^the stall incuts of the treasurer are to^Is- believed, there is no money ill the^county treasury, belonging to either^the asfseraJ or contingent funds, the^road or peer binds, and very little to^the school fhadj. And here, * let it be^remembered, ^hat it is but little more^than a years time sine*- the outstand^^ing iinl bt'diiess of the county was^funded by taking up the then out^^standing indebtedness of the county,^and ksauaf ftttJWa, of 7 per seat, inter^^est bearhsa lioml* in lieu of the county^warrants tin n due. We now iij-k in^all candor, what has bMVM of all the^money that has been paid into the^countv treasury iila*WthesebasRelWOfS^i^^ueij. What ilis|^isition has asea^made of it ^ These are gravei|Uestions,^which vitally interest I'vcry tax-payer^of Caster eouuty, and to which they^have a right to ilemand and receive a^truthful answer. The tax-payers of^the county believe the Issiks of the^trea.-urer'f. ollicc-hould show a large^balance of money on hand, derived^from taxes, etc. collected during the^last year, applb aide to the payment of^the outstanding imlchlm-ss of the^county. Do tln-y show it'.' Do the^eaaaty rVourds idMW the true condi^^tion of our county nuances^ This i-^an latportaal questiua ami one, cer^^tainly Which mi.^ i-itizcns have a right^to. und w ill reipiire. When called on^for information ii|sin this subject, the^treasurer, if be BSWsVeeajshj to notice^the apjilicant at all, curtly informs^him, 'There is no money in the treas^^ury.^ Nat one dollar has beta out in^money so far aa W^ know, to jurors,^or wiini'sses, or to laborers on the^highways, or to ether i itizens tor scr-^\'ice rendered, or for supplies furnished^the county , except, peri.aps, to a few^political or personal pets, who hang^around the public bjsjethWttrhjB of (he^iiiunty, and aid these political jugulars^of the people's money. These, we be^^lieve, are paid dollar Inr dollar, in cash.
itis a tact, pateal to the salads
ofthe most casual observer, that our^comity is thereby plundered, and^plunged IttadMMJMJ into debt, until its^Meant is almost ruined- by the rivklcss^conduct of our county officers. This^thing has Ikcii going on to an alarm^^ing extent during the pa^t two years.^Our large incomes have BS0B, and are^*till being squandered, while rSehbjse*^ares, embelished with di baui lu rv and^criminal extravagence, aeesiated with*^indecincy, have stalked at mid-day,^tiirough our streels. We | redict more^than lids, we know that w hen the hid^^den mysteries which, at present,^shroud the rot 11 n administration of our^county a Hair*, arc brought to light and^exposed to (he s^ rutiny of an outraged^paapts, as they. *ooiicr or later, will be^a mass of otliciai corruption and rot-^tenm ss w ill be found to exist, which,^in proportion to lis magnitude, will^dwarf the rascality of the notorious^Tweed rule in New Y'ork, and give an^air of ros|.cctahility to the \Umn Shep-^anl rule in Wash'iiglnn.
Tax-payersof Custer county; you^who have bssa called upon SB pay your^money into the county treasury, for^taxes and licenses, but in return have^hem paid lor your services, as jurors.^I Witnesses and laborers, in depreciated^county script, ask yourselves why^'this state oi things esjelf Are not^! your business as jurors, witneses and^labonrs, worth as much to the county,^ami ^ nt it it ^1 lo the same consideration,^^s the sen ices of your ^utty servants,^who Males! to tin niseives, a degree of^.importance ami superiority over you,^which the voters of the county have^! saver clothed them with^ Look well,^at I his state of your public affairs, on^, next Tuesday at Iheelection. Look to^| your interest and to the gissl name of^' your county ; look to its financial pros-^IKTity, to its reputation, at home aud^, abroad. Co to the ballot Isix, the place^oi last result, where the citizens must^goto obtain a reilress of his poliilcul^wrongs, mid there act and do that^wjiicii a careftlI, prudent business iiuui^would do in the maiigeinent of his^own private business affairs. Record^your vote, In fkvor of consigning these^reckless, unfaithful public affairs, to^the retirement oi private life, and see^to it, that honest i.ml com pi tint men^are elected to till their places. Clean^out this ^Alugean sluble, of political^tilth, disenlect it, and inaugerate an^honest ami a respectable ad mi nist ra^^in, n of your public attkirs. It Is your^right as tax-payers of the counly, to^demand this much, at the lailtle-box,^ami It i^ your duty to see that this^right is secured. Clean out the ^old^ring,^ no change can be for the worse.^The ' bed rock^ of political nial-ad-^minlstratiou In the management of^your county affairs, has la-en ^struck.^^Any rheBjfl must be lor the better.^Redeem Custer county from the 1m-^ih-ii ding limincial ruin, which now^threatens Its very financial existence.
