CjciNUY, III., Sept. 7. There Is much ex
citement at St. Joseph, this county, over three
mysterlotu deaths which have occurred with
in a short tlmo in one family. Mr, and Mrs.
Hiram Pcabody were prominent and honored
residents. Miss Belle Hasty, , a young woman
of fine character and pleasnnt manner?,
lived with the Peabody family and
was said to hnve been engaged to
young Silas Peabody. Voting Peabody's
parent, particularly his mother, were op
pose to this marriage, owing to Miss Hasty's
poor health. On August secopd, Mrs. Pea
body died very sudd nly of what appeared to
be neuralgia of the stomach; on August
1 7th.. Mr, Peabody dltil with the strne
symptoms. On Sept. 1st. Mlsjt Hasty
and young Silas Pcabody were
taken with the same symptoms and the young
lady died while the young man recovered
Since that time suspicion has been awakened
tiy the alleged discovery or a pscknge of rat
poison, pinned to an uuder garment, which
Miss Hasty had laid oil just betore her death,
that the latter had poisoned Mr. and Mrr.
Peaeody with the hopes of marrying their
son, and then concluded to kill him and her

Wasiiinotov, Ind., Sept. 8 There are
some new detelopments in the Davis county
trustee frauds. Orlmsby, Ilrown and Clark,
the absconding trustees, have been seen and
interviewed in Hamiltou, Ontario. Mr.
llillheimer, one of the attorneys at Washing
ton, went to Canada shortly after they
disappeared and came across them
in Hamilton. Mr. Ililllieimer says'
"When I arrived at Hamilton, Ontario, I
found three of the gloomiest trustees I ever
saw. They olTereil no apologies or explana
tion concerning their schemes. They blamed
a Chicago party for n good part of the mis
chief. I don't boliete the three trustees have
much left and I think the Chicago man bent
tbriu out of about all they rinsed on the
fraudulent warrants, because paper was
made out to his order and wilt, his promise
to hand over the money to them as he dis
posed of the paper, lt Is a (act, however,
that neither of tho three could approximate
how much paper they had Issued. The total
amount cannot be estimated at less than
$250 000 for three townships." This and the
fact thai Posey county has discovered an ap
parently illegal Italic of $8,000 ot certificates
by former trustees, has caused con
sternation among tho people of this
section, nud may result in an extra session of
the legislature fir the purpose of amending
the laws which, at present, it is said, allow
trustees almost unlimited power in railing
money for which valuereceived does not enter
as a consideration.

The other day he marched out of his honse

He was arrested under the law forbidding
the obstruction of the sidewalks, and he em
ployed counsel and went Into the court ap
parently confident of the secuiity of his po
sition. .Mr. Strauss said he was merely pok
ing up the city government with a sharp
stick. His counsel demanded to know what
person had the audacity to declare that Mr.
Strauss' little stick amounted to anything
viewed in the light of an obstruction. Coun
sel lor the city said Mr. Strauss' grievances
were irrelevant. The way to enforce the law
was to arrest the first offender, and he wanted
to know what would become of the streets
If every eleven put up such a sign.
Then Mr. Stiaus look the .stand again,

Just as he did if the honorable court had such

said he teared if he were in Mr. Strauss' place
he would bate painted bigger letters In the

The case ol Dora Hello Wade vs. Kverett J.
Wade lor divorce and alimony came up for
trial before Judge Wright In the Common
Pleas Court this inoruiug. Tho grounds al
leged for the divorce were adultery nnd gross
neglect of duly. The charge of adultery was
not pressed, as there was sufficient cause for
the divorce, as the court found, in the charge
of gross neglect. Several witnesses testified
in the ca.s, among them a man by
the name of Wade, a cousin
ot the defendant, who swore that
the defendant admitted having had criminal
intercourse with Laura Coon, of Osborn, and
Mrs, llunnah S.okes, of Yellow Springs
street. The parlies separated In February,
188 1, and the deleudant went to Cincinnati,
where he has been ever since, falling to pro
vide for the plaintiff. Tho defendant did not
appear at the trial.
The plaintiff, who is a modest
apcsring lady, excited the sympathy
of those present in the court room.
She met Wade at Oxford, 0 some years ago.
Five children were born of their union, aud
on the application of Gen. Keller, Mrs. Wade's
counsel, she was awarded their custodv, the
court remarking: "Certainly; a man like
Wade ought not to be allowed to have any
thing to do with little children ot any age."
The court also allowed the plaintiff $1,000
alimony, saying, "I'd make it more it he had
The deleudant did not appear In person, nor
was he represented at all. Since their sepa
ration he has been here once or twice to see
his wife but has contributed nothing to her
household larder. The brave little woman
tus washed day and night to support and ed
ucate her five children, the oldest of whom is
sixteen years of age.

The chorus was as finely drilled as has ever
been seen In this city. The Ko-Ko of Mr.

bis witticisms elicited much applause. Mr,
Dromon's Nanki Poo wan also finely played.
The Poo Hah of Willet Seaman showed care

possibly be handled with better effect.
Without mentioning any of the rest of the

rendition ot Gilbert .1 Sullivan's latest. As
to the comparative merits ot this troupe and

Oaiihoxn, Wis., Sept. 7. Slate Senator
Cottrlll was brought here, today, by bis recently-appointed
guardian, Mr. Wassou, who
had a commitment from the county court nt
Milwaukee to confine the senator In the In
sane asylum here for two years ns nn In
ebriate. The superintendent, Dr. Wig
genton, declined to admit Cot
trill, ruling that the senator
had been committed not as n lunatic but as au
Inebrlnte, and, therefore, eould not properly
be made an inmate of the asylum. Cjttnll,
who was one of the devisors ol the statutes,
raised this point to Dr. Wiggenton, and, alter
au elaborate argument, carried the issue. His
guardian, Wusson, dually came to terms, nnd
It was nrranged that the senator should re
main voluntarily for the time being, until the
matter can be dec Med by the state board ot su
pervision. Til i: MA I'll ; -1 .11 . l 1 ,1 KM.

night, the police raided n new gambling room
and captured the mayor and several prom
inent city officials. Alexander, the man
running the gambling room, had been raided
a few days before, in another room, and had
changed to the present place, where it was
supposed he would bo protected by the city of
ficials. No arrests were made, but the names
of the players were taken. The cards, chips,
etc., were seized. Mayor Pnngle, City At
torney Peck, Joseph Hanaw, owner of the
block, and about a dozen others, including
some wealthy ciiizens, were in the room at
the time. The afftir will probably cause

will print the following suinmsry, tomorrow,
on the corn crop outlook, based on the litest
repoittfroin its correspondents:
The cold, damp weather which has pre
vailed during the past week has
retarded the maturing of the corn
crop. In spite ot it, however,
some progress has been made. Frosts have
been experienced in many localities, but none
of sufficient severity to do any injury to the
corn. At this writing, Sept. 7, we judge that
three-fourths ot the corn of the entire coun
try is past danger from frosts, and we have
strong confidence of the full maturity of the
the largest crop ol corn ever grown iu this

Pitthduri), Pa., Sent. 7, Sam Lunir. a
tall, fine-looking Chinaman, a merchant at
J07 Samson street, Philadelphia, sat in the
t'nloh station this evening walling for the
8:30 train to depart for the Quaker city. He
had come In on the 7 o'cIock train from San
Francisco and pass-d through Rock Springs
just when the mob mado the nttnek upon the
Chinese. He related what he had seen nnd
learned In fairly good Ilnglish and with much
"About seventeen miles west of Rock
Springs," he said, "our train suddenly
stopped. I think it was about 4 o'clock in
the altcrnoon. With the other pas
sengers I stuck my heai out of
the window to learn the cause of the
delay. There Is a mountain parth near the
railroad track. Running down it in the di
rection of the train, I was asionished to see a
number of my countrymen. I think there
must have been about thirty of them. They
all hurried up to our traiu and some got
aboard. On spying me they crowded around
and warned me not to go on to Rock Springs.
They snld that the miners had burned their
town and murdered all but themselves. Kven
while talking other Chinamen kept nrrlviDg,
demoralized with tear, and joined their voices
with those of the first comers iu persuading
me to get ot! the train Hnd take to the moun
tains with them for safety. One of the last
arrivals was bleeding from a bullet wound In
the nrm. The arm wus broken by tbe ball
nnd hung helpless by his side. The How of
blood was stopricd by a docidr on the train
and the arm dressed as well as the time would
"Atier a delay ot about half an hour the
train pulled out, leaving some thirty China
men standing by the road like so many
frightenel sheep. The trainmen offered to
take tbem under their care but all save six
of them pre erred to take the chance of es
caping the hoodlums by hiding in the moun
tains to passing through the place of massa
cre. "As we drew near to Rock Springs other
Chinamen passed us on the dead run. On
seeing me they stopped and signalled as best
they could that danger was ahead. My
countrymen on the car become more and
more trightened as we progressed. Tbe
dense column ot smoke that hung over the
town, that we could make out in the distance,
confirmed what they had said, and frightened
the Americans on the train also. We did not
stop, but ran through the town. We could
see the tlames Irom some of the burning
houses as we passed. Once lieyond Uock
Springs my countrymen that we had picked
up forgot same of their fear aud told me of
the massacre. 1 hey said that they had ar
rived iu Rock Springs but a week before
from San Francisco. They had been hired
in the latter city by a Chinese contractor.
The trouble, they said, began in tbe morning,
when fight occurred down in a mine be
tween Chinese and Americans."
Hie lest of the story haruionizrd with the
accounts already given in the papers. "It
is my opinion," continued the speaker, "that
at least seventy Chinamen perished in the
riots. I reckon the number shot at about
fifty. From what my countrymen told me
at least twenty more would die of their
wounds or of starvation in the mountains.
My countrymen do not bear up well under
defeat and hardships. Many ot those who
took reluge in the mountains would never
find their way to ano her settlement, but
would perish of privation."
