Salt Lake Crrr, January 10. Recently
some high Mormons returned from Mexico.
They reached the stronghold ol the untama
ble Yaqua Vages, and made a conditional
treaty with them. Within a few days, John
Taylor, head of the Moimon Church; Chiej
Counsellor Sa;ih, uichop onarp and others
left here. It is known that they
are en route to Mexico, and are be
lieved to have gone to the Capital
to treat with the Mexican government for
lands and a charter. It is understood that
the plan is to make a reudou3 for Mormons,
who are liable to prosecution under the Ed
wards law; also, to form the nucleus of a
future Empire. In their favor is the fact that
the Vaukana Indians have never been sub

States fear them exceedingly.

enlarges on the extraordinary proportions the
exposition has assumed. They speak of the

the untiring energy of the management and
the impossibility, unless relieved, of the
Board to do what they originally intended
for State exhibits, without extra appropri

Dynamite Lsagne'ii Assassination
New York, January 9. Captain Thomas
Phelan, of Kansas City, generally known as
the world-renowned "No. 1," was stabbed,
and, in all probability fatally, at a late hour
this afternoon in the office of O'Djno
vaa Rossa, on Chambers street.
A week ago last Sunday the
Kansas City Journal published an interview
which one of its local editors had held with
Phelan, and in which the latter gave some
details as to the proceedings of the dynamiters
in England, that were extremely displeasing
to O'Donovan Rossa and his friends. Phelan
shortly received a letter from John T.
Kearney asking him to come to New York,
and it was in response to this letter
that he was here to-day. On
his arrival he first called on
Kearney, and they went together to
Kosaaa otbee; but the latter was not in.
While sitting here, a man named Rocky
Mountain O'Brien came in, and, after a
friendly conversation, left the room just as
another man named Barker entered, with a
knife in his band. Barker immediately ap
proached and struck at Phelan, who jumped
from his chair, and ran down stairs, followed
by his assassin, who stabbed him repeatedly.
Barker, on his arrest within a few yards ol
the place where his victim was lying upon
the sidewalk, gave his name as Richard Short
The police brought him back to where Phe
lan was lying, when the latter, after identify
ing his murderer, managed to draw bis re
volver and shoot twice, the last shot taking
effect in Short's thigh. O'Donovan Rossa
pretends complete ignorance of the whole
affair. In spite of Rossa's denial, however,
the impression is very strong that it was a
deliberate plan of the dynamiters to remove
Nrw Yobk, January 10. Richard Short
the man who stabbed Capt. Phelan, yester
day, in O'Donovan Rossa's office, was ar
raigned in court to-day. A few peo
ple were present. Short appeared calm and
collected. The prisoner was remanded
to await the result of Phelan's injuries. At
the hospital the physician says that Phelan's
condition is improved since midnight and it
is barely possible that he may recover.
The Howard Athaxeum Specialty Company

On next Tuesday, January 13, Mr. W. J.
Scanlan, the talented young Irish comedian,
will appear at Black's Opera House, in "Friend
and Foe." The Rochester Herald says: "The
regular season at Corinthian Academy was
opened iast evening by Wi-Scanlan --Prir
ju TotT--Xlarge and brilliant
audience was present. This was doubly
gratifying, as an indication that the popular
place of amusement had lost none of its at
tractiveness, and as a flattering testimonial to
Mr. Scanlan and his excellent company. The
play was received as enthusiastically as upon
the occasion of the first presentation before a
Rochester audience. Mr. Scanlan has long
been recognized as a talented and versatile
comedian. When be assumed the character
of Carroll Moore, in Battley Campbell's
'Friend and Foe,' both play and actor leaped
into popular favor. The plot of the play is
sufficient to hold the interest of an audience,
and in point of detail it is nowise inferior to
the other productions of this gifted anthor.
The character of Carroll Moore is an admira
ble portrayal of a young Irish minstrel, full
of wit, pathos and patriotism, and with a
soul for music. No character could be better
adapted to display Mr. Scanlan's
eminent talents as a high class comedian.
During the evening Mr. Scanlan sang a num
ber of bis popular songs, including his new
'Rose Song,' and a companion song to Peek-a-Boo,'
with the interesting and euphonious
title, 'Bye, Bye, Baby, Bye, Bye.' Of course
he sang 'Peek-a-Boo,' and it was as enlhusi
tically received as ever."

As tbe latest wrinkle among the lovers of
art is the formation ot "Sketching Clubs,'
no city wbich makes any pretension to tbe
cultivation of what Ruskin terms the "true
and the beautiful," but bas a sketcning club.
To it all the artists, prolessionaland amateur,
attach themselves. While the hyperborean
breezes are blowing from the North, and
their winds, like those fabled ones pitch to
tte ancient mariners, are all suffered to rush
.orth at once, the club will confine Itself to
indoor work. Its members will
pick up a pungent fern leaf
and reproduce its delicate fronds
in pigments; or an apple, and limn it, all rosy
red, looking "good enough to eat," on can
vass. For, be it known, like all true artists,
they propose to go to Nature herself, tbe
true fountain-head of irsptratioD, tor their
"studies" in color. When, however, Spring
Btretches her blue veil over tbe now wintry
heavens, and the sunshine brings out the
"hips" and "haws" on the des s!rated branches,
and the flowers smile from tbe meadows, and
the birds sirg in the tree?, they may become
a joyous band of pedestrians, going hither.

however expert, can, in tbe lull sense ot the

of Whistler, isn't it? rainbowed and slight

Other mishap3 besides murder will "out,"
and tbis one is too good to keep. As tbe story
runs, complete in one chapter and a post
scrip', the bachelor Mayor of a sister city it
isn't Washington in the District ot Columbia,
nor Xenia, nor Urbana, nor Pitchin fell a
victim to the unnumbered charms of a Spring
field society lady, and recently wrote her, on
the finest stationery procurable this side of
Paris Kentucky a polite note, asking the
favor, in case tbe lady's time was not monoD
olized entirely by "those Springfield dudes,"
of permission to make an early call and pats
a pleasant evening in her company. With
tbe thought in mind perhaps that the President
elect of these United States was once a bachelor-Mayor,
the permission so courteously
asked was granted by return post and an
evening named, the more ieadilyrit may be
believed, because the gallant petitioner is
really an agreeable enough fellow, though a
Mayor and not a newspaper man. The
passage of time and the up-train on h "Old
Safety" railway brought our young friends
together on the appointed evenicg, and a
cozy tete-a-tete was just well established
when there was an ominous ring at the door
1 ell and in a few moments wa3 ushered into
the presence of the pair a regardlessly-got-ten-up
youth who was easily recognized by
the Mayor of as a representative of
that species which is bis special aversion
the "Springfield dudes." After a stay timed
by the requirements and canons of good
breeding, this paiticular dude departed, only
to be succeeded by a second of his kind,
and he by a third, fourth, filth
and so on up to tbe double numbers. Tbe
situation was becoming serious and the hour
very late, so that, when it began to appear
as though the "Springfield Dudes" were out
in full force and concentrating their atten
tions, bis Houor arose and closed the court
ing, so far as he was concerned, accepting an
invitation to call again but the Globe-Ri-rCBLtc
guesses he'll not, right aay.
Of course the reader will wish to know
how it happened just as it did, and it is only
necessary to explain that the lady in tbe case
has a brother and that tbis brother is one of
"those Springfield Dudes." The reporter for
got to ask how the brother got onto tbe
Mayor's little affair, but will do so.atJherfirat-
tbe young lady is as much in tbe dark on
that point as anybody else.
THREE TIMES AND A GO.
A County farmers' Institute to be Held,

About the only business of any interest
transacted by the Clark County Board of Ag
riculture at tbe monthly session Saturday
afternoon, was in connection wiih the hold
ing of a County Institute, which it was unani
mously agreed to do. the time to be about the
middle of March, and place, tbis city. On
two former occasions action has been taken
by the Board against such an enterprise, on
tbe ground that tbe Agricultural Society is
somewhat in debt and there eight be diffi
culty in defraying necessary expenses. Within
a week or two there has been quite general
expres-ion among farmers themselves in favor
ut an Institute so that, at Saturday's meeting,
with every township but one represented,
when Chas. Stewart moved that "we hold a
Farmers' Institute under the auspices
of the Board of Agriculture, with the expecta
tion of meeting expenses by public coutribu
bution," the resolution was adopted unani
mously, as above stated. Remarks strongly
favoring the movement were made by Hon.
John Howell, C. E. Tborne, editor Farm and
Fireside, Capt. Perry Stewart, President
Hazzard, Chas. Stewart and others. On fur
ther motion by Mr. Stewart, tbe President of
the Board, Dr. J. S. R. Hazzird, was author
ized to engage speakers, secure a place ot
meeting for a three days Institute and ar
range a programme. Dr. Hazzird will be in at
tendance at Columbusjnext on week tbe State
Agricultural Convention, and will have op
portunity then to make good selections of
speagers. One feature of the programme is
likely to be a ps.per on silk culture, by a 1-dy
who has engaeed therein extensively and
practically. The full programme will be
given in tbis paper in abont two weeks,
probably. Ljok far it and attend the Insti
