Dispatches From the National Capital.
Washington, July 20. Assistant Sec
retary Bnssey has affirmed the adverse
decision of the pension bureau on the
application of Mary Taffe, widow of
Henry Tnffe. for a pension. TuflVi and
a commie, by permission of their com
manding officer, spent the night of
March 10, 1803. with a provost guard at
Wind Mill Point, Va., all of thein drank
whisky furnished by one of the officers
in honor of at. Patrick's day, and dur
ing a drunken quarrel Private Cornelius
Collins killed Taffe. The secretary holds
that Taffe's visit to the guard post was
not made in the lino of military duty
but for porsonal pleasure. Even if ho
was in the lino of duty, however, he vio
lated his duty by getting drunk.
In the appeal reference is made to
Mrs. Tail'es' financial condition. The
secretary says, speaking of this: "An
appeal to sympathy in behalf of a claim
ant may be properly addressed to the
community in which claimant resides,
and such an appeal, as in this case,
ihould be kindly heard and promptly
responded to on the part of a patriotic
and Immune peoplo, out the depart
ment, however, disposed to hear such a
plaint, is confined ay its duties to the
impartial execution of the law, and
possesses no jurisdiction over cases of
appeal based on considerations of char

Discovery Near Yankton, Dak.

I mams ui wiiita puvpie, uuuuruu uuu
' adults. Indications are that they have
been buried forty or nity years.
Two theories are advanced to account
for their presence. One is that they
were immigrants lwund for California
in 1848, who wero murdered by Indians.
Another theory is that they were In
dians of some tribe at war with tho
Sioux, and that they wero massacred.

SENSATIONAL TRIAL ENDED.

Acquitted of Murder.
London, July 20. From Turin, Italy,
comes the news of the acquittal of Gen
ora Dina, the young and beautiful wife
of Banker Dina, of that city, whose sen
sational trial on the charge of murder
has kept the whole city in a fever of ex
citement for a week. Tho husband of
the accused is well known as one of the
boldest speculators on tho Italian
bourses, and recently, when misfortuno
overtook him, he was counted among
tho wealthiest bankers of Turin. Not
long since he mot with severe losses on
change nnd attempted suioido by poison,
but through the efforts of tho doctors
his life was saved, though for many
weeks he lingered between life and
While in this condition two of hia
creditors mado persistent efforts to got
access to him, which the banker's de
Toted wifo, watching at his bedside, de
nied them, but they, believing tho bank
er's illness feigned, one day called at
his house and threatened to break into
bis room by force if proveuU! The
brave wife seized a rovolver ai!V. fired
it into the air, but this did not frighten
her assailants, who quickly wrenched
the weapon from her grasp and pro
ceeded toward the apartment where the
banker lay at the point of death.
Crazed by fears for her husband's life,
she armed hersolivvith a sharp dagger
and followed tho two men, one of whom,
a note broker, named Coen-Cogli, at
tempted to wrost the dagger from her
hands. A desperate struggle ensued,
in the course of whioh both fell to the
floor together, and in tho fall, as is
claimed by tho defense, the dagger en
tered Coen-Cogli's Bide, causing his
death in a fow minutes. Boforo dying,
however, the unfortunate broker stated
to the officer, who quiokly arrived on
the spot that the fault was entirely his
own, and that tho lady was blameless.
Notwithstanding this the young woman
was arrested on the charge of murder.
She was ably defended, and the trial,
which attracted attention all over
Europo, finally resulted in her being set
frea Sho was'sentenoed to two months'
imprisonment, but the seutencu was re
mitted by the judge in viow of her long
imprisonment awaiting trial. This de
cision gives general satisfaction in
Turin, where the acoussed has been long
and favorably known and where she
moved in tho very best socioty.
