TRYING TO OBSGUBE THE ISSUES.
The New York Sun gets frantio
over a proposed amondiiicnt to the
census law recommended by Super
intendent Porter. Ono clause that
particularly arouaes its passions, is as
"Each and every person moro than
twenty years of ago, belonging to auy
family residing in any enumeration
district or subdivison, and in oasa of
tho absence of the head and other
members of any such family, then any
representative of such family shall bo,
and eaoh of them hereby required, if
thereto requestod by tho superintend
ent, suporv sor or enumerator, to rea
der a true account, to the best of his
or her knowledge, of every person be
longing to such family in the various
particulars required by law, and who
over shall willully fail or refuse- shall
bo guilty of a misdemeanor, and on
conviction thereof, shall bo fined in a
sum not exceeding one hundred dol
lars." Mr. Porter seoks to liavo the echou
dule of questions to bo asked by tho
censuB enumerators left to the discre
tion of tho superintendent and the
secretary of tho interior, which is
all wrotig, and suoh power should not
and will not bo given him. Tho
point The Nbwb desires to make,
however, is that tho Sun as tho organ
of the dominant elemont of the Demo
crats par y in congress proposes to
howl about little things so that useful
and needed reforms will die of inertia.
The Sun. and its candidate for presi
dent David B. Hill do not want tho
Democrats to do anything. They
want thorn to always "cuss" the
republicans and howl about tho
-Billion Congress." Well, tho fifty
first was very lavish with tho peo
ples money, but having taken it from
tho people by a robber tax, about tbo
host thing thoy could havo done was
to put it baok among the people.
Tho Sun and its "Davy" dont
propose to stop taking tho monoy
from "tho people, and when another
billion is oolloctod, along will como a
Republican congress and disburso
it. Tho Snn can rant about little
things, but the Democratic masses
will not forgot that thoy are being
taxed to support the classes, by a gov
ernment that positively refuses to
givo thom money enough with whioh
to pay it.
Sonator Hill, iu his speech, in Al
bany Doo. 31 said: "Pass no free coin
ago bill. Grapple to undo tho worst
work of tho Billion Dollar Congress,
demand tho ropeal of the Sherman
silver law, and the McKinley tariff
law Put the country and its silver
laws and its tariff laws back whoro
they stood beforo the party's misad
venture in 1888." Hill is making
thojoountry sick, howling about tho
Billion Dollar Congress. By the way,
who was it said Hill favored free
The Dcnison Gazette says Mills'
senatorial boom was started too soon
and Amos Cummings says his sneak-
ership boom was started too late. It
is hard to get a boom started at tho
right time to suit one's enemies.

F. Wilson, who conveyed Graves from
tho courthouse to his coll, state that on
the way he confessed that Dnnitil L, Bal
lon wai the instigator of the crime. Th
three men left tho courthouse immedi
iitely after tho doctor had lieen given in
their power mid walked across Glenumi
street to Colfax avenue bridge, which
they crossed nnd went down Colfns
avenue to the jail. They stopped at a
saloon to iemiit the doctor to drink a
glass of whisky, as he wsis weak. Menus
nnd Wilsou thus tell the facts, which
the allege were confessed:
"When we left tho courthouse." said
Wilson. "Dr. Graves took my arm. 1
asked him if he wished to drive over nnd
he said he preferred to walk. He was
weak and trembling. Means fell a little
"I wanted to watch him." interjected
"As we went along." continued Wil
son, "the doctor began to speak of the
case and asked me what I thought of his
chance in au appeal to tho supremo court.
I told him I did not think his chances ot
much account. I added I thought the
best thing he could do was to make a
confession of the whole thing and he
might have a chance of executive clem
ency. He said, 'Ballon brought me to
the gallows: I know I am going to my
death place.' I said, 'What do you mean?
Ho said 'Ballon is worse than I am; worse
than I am, Mr. Wilson: twice its bad.'
Ho said ho sent a bottle of poison, but
Ballon instigated tho whole affair. 1
turned around to Means and said, 'Do
yon hear what this man says, George?'
Graves 6topped, turned around and
spreading out his anus told the whole
thing over again."
A reporter called ukii Graves in his
cell. lie was told he was alleged to
havo made a confession. He refused to
deny that he had dono so, putting it this
way: "I have nothing more to say until
I see Judge Furman."
It is stated that Macon nnd Funnau
used every effort to prevent Ballon com
ing to Denver, as it would prejudice the
case. Graves insisted that lie should
come. Mrs. Graves, the mother, and
Mrs. Graves, tho wife, were completely
prostrated when the verdict was told to
them. In the Villejo hotel are two
stricken women, tho wife and mother oi
the prisoner. They were not present in
court Saturday night. There was n
premonition that tho scene might be
painful, so they stayed away. They
learned tho news soon enough.
Judge Furman empliatically denies
that Graves made a confession to the
deputy sheriffs. Graves refused to say
anything in regard to the matter, ex
cepting that he is entirely innocent and'
desires to be left undisturbed in his cell
at the jail. Colonel Ballon was not seen
yesterday, and it is said he disappeared
from public sight shortly after the
verdict was rendered.
When Graves was searched at the jail
Saturday night beforo being put in his
cell three or four small vials were found
on his person. They contained a color
less fluid, which the doctor said was
ontiroly harmless. This led them to
believe the doctor had attempted to
commit suicide. This is denied by the
keeper. He is confined in a cell made oi
open ironwork, and a guard is on duty
and can see every move ho makes. Con
stant guard is kept over him.
.Tndgo Furman says ho will do nil in
his power to procure another trial for
him. Tho judge claims the doctor is a
poor man, and had ho had enough money
to procure the necessary witnesses the
verdict would have been different.
Shooting at Yoiiluuii.

iKg seraH3 occurred here Saturday, in
which Thos. F. Bracey was seriously
wounded by Wm. A. Fink on tho ilat

a dispute in front of Ganiett's store and
Parker finally cut Walters across thr

but both charges hit Judge Garrett full
in tho stomach and he was taken insensi

pistol at Parker twice while the latter
was shooting at him with a gun, then
ran into a store near by, grabbed cart
ridges from the shelf, when he became
too weak to travel any further and wm

NnwYoitic, Jan. 4. Belmont Voul
laire, tho Harlem real estate man has re
covered his wife and baby Winona, who
disappeared from their homo in West
One Hundred and Twenty-sixth street
some time ago. Mrs. Voullaire was found
in Boston, whero she had' been induced
to go witli Matilda Jardino, a servant.
Voullare found his wife by tho cleverest
sort of detective work. lie gavo up his
position when his wife disappeared on
Dec. H. and with a purso of $400 sub
scribed by friends, ho began tho search.
He learned the Jardino woman had nn
illegitimate child on Staten Island, and
that she made frequent visits there. He
finally located tho home of tho child and
forced from its nurse, a negro woman, a
confession that the Jardine woman had
packed a trunk there. This trunk he
traced to the Fall River Steamboat com
pany's pier in this city. He found that
it had been shipjied to Providence. Go
ing on to Providence ho learned that his
wife had earned a few dollars thero mak
ing fancy work, and that she had taken
a train for the east. Voullaire went to
Boston. There he watched tho "want"
columns of the newspapers, thinking his
wife would advertiso to do fancy work.
IBs effort were rewarded. On Friday
last ho traced an "ad" of this kind toll
cheap lodging-house in South Boston and
found his wife nnd baby on the verge ol
starvation. Mrs. Voullaire was over
joyed. Voullaire tried to induce the
Jardine woman to return to New York,
but she baw through his schemo nnd
escaped. Mrs. Voullaire says the Jardin
woman held a great influence over her.
and that she was forced to do her bid
ding. This influence, Voullaire says,
was gained by giving his wife bromide
of potassium. The reunited family re
turned to New York last Saturday.
London, Jan. 4. A dispatch from
Shanghai just received states that not
withstanding tho punishment recently
inflicted by the imperial troops upon the
Mongoliun outlaws who committed so
many depredations in Mnnehurin the
lawless bands are again marauding in
the northern part of China. It is re
ported these bands have destroyed n
number of temples in that section of
China, but no religious or political im
portance attaches to tho movement,
which is thus termed, in lieu of a better
word to describe it, lawless. It is bo
lioved it is not a preconcerted rising
against the Chinese authorities. In fact,
tho dispatches of to-day say that tho
matter is partly due to agrarian troubles,
the Mongolians being land owners, nnd
that the marauders include a largo num
ber of Shan Tung fanners. This dis
patch further says that Li Hung Chary;,
the viceroy, is recovering from a recent
attack of illness and that he is so far
convalescent that he will be ablo to at
tend to government business. Ho has,
as in tho recent troubles, assumed the di
rection and disposal of the military
forces and is dispatching cavalry to re
press tho lawlessness and if possible cap
ture the marauders.
