aster. WASiiisorox, Jan. 10. Since the recent
terrible disaster on the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad uear Tlilln, O., the subject of heat
ing cars by some other method than that
now in vogue has been the topic of a great
deal of discussion. At the patent office,
where Inventors are wont to gather, this
subject has been one of exceedingly lively
iuterest, and during thepa-tthreedays that
portion of the ofhec which has charged ap
pliances for railway cars has beeen besieged

It is thought by the officials of the depart
ment that within a month a Hood of appli
cations will be filed for patents on devices
for heating trains by the exhaust steam
troni the engine, by electricity, and by
other methods less dangerous than stoves.
There have been a great many patents
granted for devices of this kind, but for
some reason they have not met the general
approval of the railway people, and the
right tiling for the titua has not yet been
perfected evidently. A gentleman who I
the purchasing agent for one of the largest
systems of railway in the country, who is in
Washington, said that the invntor who
perfects some system for car heating
which will do away witli the danger
of fire, is bound to make a fortune. This
gentleman believes that every trunk line
and nearly every other smaller road In the
country would rapidly adopt such a device
and would pay for It liberally, but he says
that everything that has yet been erfected
is either too complicated for u-e or else en
tirely inadequate for the purpose. A patent
attorney who handles a great many appli
cations of mechanical appliances, says that
he has filed not less than three caveats this
week for Inventors who think they have
struck the right tiling. He estimates that
there will lie at least 100 claims for atcnt.s

form of open lawlessness, violence and

that threaten the very existence
of the statu of the Union. He adds: "Un

Hurslin D'Artobbl, the negro who lias
been in jail for some time serving a sen
tence for larceny and who attempted to
commit suicide by hanging himself, was re
leased on Saturday, and this morning again
made himself notorious. About 8 o'clock.
Thomas S. liaynor, who carries mail In the
west end and has for convenience, a horse
and cart, stopped his wagon In front of a
house on extreme west Main street and en
tered to hiier some mail. While in the
house, a colored man stepped quickly to
the wagon, and seizing the
TWO LAP IIOBEs,
started out Main street with
them. He was seen by Mr. J. J.
Sillier, who, together with Mr.
Rayner, sprang into the mail cart and whip
ping up tlio horse started after the thief.
Sreiug that the fellow was gaining at every
step on the horse. Lawyer Miller sprang
from the wagon and started after the man
on a dead run.
Seeing that he was being hotly pursued
the thief dropped the robes and ran like a
racer, but the attorney was hot on his trail.
Miller yelled at the fellow to halt, but as he
apparently had urgent business in the west
he did not obey the mandate. He, however,
turned half around and placing the thumb
of his left hand on the end of his nose
wiggled his fingers tauntingly at his pur
suer. 1 his "riled' Miller ami drawing his
revolver he tired at the thief. The latter
jumped up Into the air four or five fejet and
then redoubled his efforts to escape. Miller
CONTINUED TO (HOOT
at Intervals, anil every time the pistol
cracked the man would spring forward like
a spirited horse when struck with a whip.
l'assing tlirougn tiie bridge across Buck
creek the fellow turned to the right and ran
up the bottoms on the west side of the
stream. By this time the lawyer was gain
ing rapidly and the negro saw that he would
lia e to resort to heroic means to escape.
He stopiied on the high bank of the creek
and for an instant survey isl the tifteen feet
of w ater between the bank and the Ice In
the stream. Ills hesitation was but momen
tary, however, and gathering himself to
gether he made a great leap and landed
sq'iarely on the ice. In a few
seconds he had reached the opposlt bank,
and at the same time Mr. Miller arrived at
the point where the fellow had made hLs
big jump. The thief ran up toward the St.
Jolin machine works while his pursuer was

to the easfen. side of the cieek. however,
the thief had placed hinise'f hi a box, for
other pursuers had gone i.ro.ind by the St.
John works to head him off.
Seeing that he was cornered, the man
showed tight, and when Miller reached the
scene he found the thief and Andy Jacobs
engaged In a red-hot fist tight The negro
was little, but plucky, and he was
planting soino very heavy blows on
his big antagonist Suddenly Jacobs

command. The man

ami fell backwards like a log. He was then
easily s.vured. The patrol wagon was
summoned, and when the officers ar

as D'Artohbi. He was bundled into the
patrol wagon without ceremony and taken
to jail. I.iwyer Mdler accompanying him
to see that he was safely locked up. On the
way to jail tiie prisoner declared that he
would again try to commit suicide, and
would certainly succeed this time. The
credit of his capture belongs to Lawyer
Miller, and lie has been much praised for
his nerve in pursuing the man.

brothers to mourn their loss. The funeral
services were conducted Friday at 2 o'clock
p. m. by Rev. Win. W. Vlney, who offi
ciated at the request of the deceased. The
text was Psalms, 23. a part of the fourth
verse: "Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil, for Thou art witli me." The Bush
nell Guards stood in line in their uniforms
and army equipments In the midst of a
large audience. The preacher in brief
showed the early patriotic spirit that was in
the sweet singer of Israel in his youth, ami
his courage, humiliation, and confession to
God. He congratulated the Bushnell
Guards for their patriotism and appealed to
them all to implore God to give them the
spirit of humiliation. Brother Phillips was

ITALIAN CUTTER CAPTURED.
Tony Taxllaferro, Who Murderously As
saulted Tony Agostlno, Finally Kuu
During Saturday afternoon and night and
all day Sunday the police kept a bright
lookout for tiie little Italian, Tony Tagila
ferro. who so murderously slashed a fellow
countryman, Tony Agostlno, on Saturday
afternoon, but although they were more
than ordinarily diligent in their search,
their efforts were unrewarded. Not the
slightest trace of Tagllaterro could be found
and the belief that he had left the city
gained ground among the officers. As Offi
cer Adam N'icklas and Ed Furnlss were go
ing west on Main street last night about
10:30 o'clock they heard of a fellow who
was prowling about a stable back of Schaef
fcr's grocery. They Investigated the mat
ter and while so doing Officer Nicklas
caught sight of a man lurking In a dark
corner as if trying to escape observation
Xicklas made a leap for hi in and when he
had dragged him out where he could get a
look at him. discovered that he had cap
tured the Kalian. Tagliaferro. The little
chap presented a peculiar appearance. He
had been obliged to leave the house so
quickly after cutting Agostlno that he neg
lected to put Ills cap on and he had been
wandering about in the cold bareheaded.
Finally, however, he hail torn one leg from
a pair of old pantaloons and pulled tiie leg
over his head and ears. HLs appearance
was decidedly comical, to say the least
Almost as soon as he was placed under ar
rest he importuned N'icklas to gie him
something to eat, as he said that he had
not had a bite of an thing since din
ner on Saturday. He was conveyed
to jail and looked up on the charge of cut
ting with intent to kill. His victim, Agos
tlno, is doing as well as might be exjiecteil
after the horrible slashing he received. It
is believed in imlice circles that Agostino
will refuse to appear against Tagliaferro In
court and that If the latter is prosecuted his
fellow countrymen will go on the witness
stand and lie like pirates to save loin. It is
also believe that If Tagliaferro Is released
Agostino or some one of his friends will
"get even" by carving him. Italians have
much more faitli in the efficacy of the knife
In such cases than they have in the law.
It Is said by some of laiiliaferro s associ
ates that he Is crnzv Something Is evident
ly the matter with him.
Leonard f ilit Staves Ills Nephew from In
Jury, but His Own Leg is Broken.
On Saturday afternoon about 4 o'clock a
serious accident occurred near the Lime
stone street bridge, Leonard Wild, a brother-in-law
of Mr. E. M. Campbell, breaking
his right leg while coasting. Young Wild
and his little nephew, Mr. Campbell's son.
wero coasting the hill on the east side of '
the street Wild was sitting on the front
of the sled and his nephew behind. Just
before the bridge was reached a sharp turn
had to bs made, and the sled was going so
rapidly that when Wild attempted to guide
It around the turn he found that he had
lost all control of It In an In
stant it flashed through his mind
that the sled would strike a tree that was
directly In their path. He realized that he
might ave himself from the shock by roll
ing off the sled, but he feared that If he
tried to save himself his litttle nephew
would be hurt All this passed like a flash
through his mind and his resolve was In
stantly taken. Bracing himself firmly he
shoved his feet forward to receive the shoct
from the tree, knowing that his nephew be
hind him would be safe.
The shock came, and a severe one it was,
and the sled and the two boys were thrown
into a confused heap. The little nephew
jumped up laughing and unhurt, but when
young Wild attempted to arise to his feet
he discovered that his right leg was useless,
while sharp pains shot through It causing
him almost to faint He was carried to his
home, and Dr. Rodgers was Immediately
summoned. On examination it was discov
ered that the lad's right leg was broken
about half way between the knee and ankle.
Tim Injured ihnb was set and the brave
boy is now doing as well as could be ex
pected. N EW DEBATING SOCIETY.

house kept by Mamie Albin, on short Win

of, so last night about 10 o'clock Chief
Mills and Officers Fumiss, Nicklas, Mast
and Marshall raided the place and made a
big haul. The Inmates of the house were
have a high Jinks time when the descent
on them was made by the officers, and they
were caught dead to rights, so to speak.
When the officers entered the house one
fellow rushed up stairs anil, taking refuge
in a corridor, closed the door, hoping to es
cape. He was spotted, however, by Officer
Mast, who followed him up sttirs.
and endeavored to force open the door, but
was unsuccessful. He then procured a
hatchet and forced the door, catching the
fellow as neatly as If he had been in a trap.
The man proved to be the notorious Will
iam Montrose, who has been before the
mayor no end of times and who, being a
married man, was especially desirous of
escaping. He had the liardened cheek to
give the name of William Lamont but the
officers refused to register the fictitious
