Philadelphia, Nov. 15. A fifteen-year-old
boy, giving tho name of Loo Lawrence,
appeared at tho Central Station and swore
out a warrant for the arrest of Adam
Foropaugh, jr., tho elephant trainer, and
son of the well-known showman, upon tho
chargoof assault and battcoy. Tho boy's
faco was partially covorod with, rocontly
inflicted cuts aud bruises, while' both his
hands bore marks of cruel troatinont. In
making the affidavit he informed Magistrate
Ladnor that ho was training
to bocomo a professional circus
rldor at tho winter quarters of tho
Forepaugh show, corner of Lehigh avenue
nnd Richmond streot. Whilo practicing a
difficult feat, the horse in tho meantime going
at full speed, little Leo fell to tho
ground. This so lncensod young Forepaugh,
who was a critical spectator of tho boy's efforts
that he strode the young equestrian
over tho head and faco with a loaded whip,
and then prodded htm in tho back with an
iron prong commonly used in subduing refractory
elephants. In attempting to protect
himself from the sssault tho boy's
hands were also injured by tho weapon.
Tho warrant for young Forepaugh's arrest
was placod in tho hands of Lieutenant
Wood, of the Eighth District If it is truo,
as tho injured boy alleges, that ho is only
fifteen years of ago, the Forepaiighs can be
prosecuted for employing as a performer a
boy benoath tho minimum age allowod by
law, which is sixteen years.

-How the Final Transfer
Springfield, 111., Nov. 15. Scores of
persons daily visit tho tomb of Abraham
Lincoln in this city. An attendant points
out tho marble sarcophagus as containing
tho coffin of tho martyr President. Every
decoration day it is strewn with
fresh floral offerings by ladiss.
Tho fact was developed yestorday
that the sarcophagus is empty. A member
of the Monument Committoo said to a reporter:
"Yes, Lincoln's remains havo
been removed from tho sarcophagus."
"Whoro is tho body nowl" "I cannot
telL" "Do you know!" I cpn say that
tho body is safe" "When did tho removal
tako place" That don't master; it only
concerns tho people of tho country to know
that the body of Abraham Lincoln has
boon deposited whero no ghoulish hands
can ever desecrate it." Tho reporter afterwards
ascertained that, after tho attempt
to steal tho body had been mado by gravo
robbers a fow years ago, tho persons who
aro rcsionsibld for its safe keeping held a
consultation, when it was proposod to remove
It, which was unanimously concurred
in. Accordingly tho body was put into a
load-lined, air-tight cedar coffin. This
coffin was then hidden, it is supposod,
somewhere about tho monument, just whers
tho committoo rof use to state. Thero aro
oidy half a dozen men who'aro nwaro of
tho last resting placo of tho remains
of tho dead Prosident. From time to time
statements appeared to tho effect that parts
of tho body havo bcon stolen. Thero is no
truth in theso stories. When tho removal
was made tho body and llmbi wore all
thore. But considerable difficulty was experienced
In making The transfer, as tho
body was so decomposed that some of tho
flesh fell from tho bones when handled.
When the bungling thlovos attempted to
steal tho body nnd wore scared off thoy left
tho coffin party drawn out ol tho marble
sarcophagus, but its contents were undisturbed.
