here of Nellie Kennedy, the witness wauted
by the prosecution in the Blinkey Morgan

than two weeks before making the arrest.
She was very communicative and said as
she was in for it sha was willing to tell
what she knew, and said: "Yet, I know
what they arretted me for: It was not for
being drunk, but they think I know some
thing about ttie Uiinkey' Morgan case, and
I do. I was on the train that night going
from Pittsburg to Cleveland, and sitting in

Morgan came in at, but it was some time
liefore we reached Itavenna. I didn't
know then who he was. but he sat down
opposite me and we talked awhile. Finally
he got up and got me a urmk ot water and

look through into the smoking car, and
then he went out on the platform. I was
sitting facing the door, so I could
see every movement he made. He then
open the door Into the smoking
ear and 1 heard nun yell, "Sow is the time,

hred and he ran back and caught hold ot
the door of our car. By this time I had
reached it, as I want d to see what the
trouble was. and then two more shots, one
so near me that 1 1 an back to my seat 1
heard the scuttle and then all was quiet I
have since seen 'Blink v' Morgan and rec

me that night and who hred the shots on
the train. As to whore I have been since
then it is no one's business."
The witness was taken to Cleveland last
evening by Uetectlve Iteeves, who said un

FALL IN, PLUG HATS!
Reorganization of the Famous Old Brigade
Friday Night J. H. Arbogaat
An Knthnslastle Mretlne Held at the
Wigwam Company Ultlrtn Hrlerted,
Recruiting lleicuii Immediately

"Plug Hat Brigade. Fall In !"
Such was the order issued last night and,
in obedience to it. tiie hundreds of that
justly famous organization are rallying at
at the headquarters of their respective cap
tains and by next Tuesday evening, when
the brigade is expected to turn out to re
ceive SK.VATIIK .HKIIMA.V,
there will be five hundred men in line.
The fame of the
si'itiMiFiEi.n pi.rn hat iuuoadk
has gone abroad, and during the campaign
of 1884 it was probably the most powerful
and thoroughly organized political force in
the United States. On several occasions It
had fifteen hundred men in line and
wherever the brigade appear! it was most
enthusiastically received. No marching
political organization in the country even
approached it in size and it was recognized
as a power in Ohio politics.
On Friday evening a meeting of republi
cans was held at the wigwam for the pur
pose of reorganizing the famous brigade
for marching service, not only In the pres
ent campaign, but in the presidential cam
paign of 1SSS. It was deemed expedient
to get the organization on its feet at this
time so that it would be in
for next year's campaign, and the vim and
enthusiasm which characterized the first
meeting held for the purpose named, was a
sufficient guarantee that the brig
aiewill, in a very s ort time,
be ready for as active and efficient service
as it did iu the great Blaine campaign of
84. Had that old brigade been able to
spread itself out over the whole country as
thoroughly as it did over Ohio the result
would have been different James G.
Blaine would not be dodging newspaper re
porters In Paris, and Grover Cleveland, in
stead of scooting through big republican
states in the dead of night would be only
a common, ordinary, every-day kind of cit
izen of ItulTilo, New York.
But to return to the wigwam meeting:
At 8 o'clock the meeting was called to
order by Mr. It F. Haywanl, chalinan of
the republican county central committee.
About 250 republicans, chietiy members of
the old brigade, were present and were

of reorganizing the brigade.
Enquire W. A. Stout the captain of com
pany D, of the brigade, was chosen chair
man of the meeting, and J. C. Hollo way,
captain of compaay C, secretary.
Mr. It F. Hayward stated the object of
the meeting, and speeches were nade by
J. II. Arbogast lieutenant colonel of the
old brigade. J. F. McGrew, J. I Kidder,
J. II. Babbitts, Asa Hatch, J. S. Miles and
others. All expressed themselves as
willing to work hard to re
organize the old brigade, and President
Asa Hatch, of the Buckeye Club, and
otlur members of the club who spoke, said
that the one organlzition would not, in the
least interfere with the other. I he gen
eral sentiment was that when the brigade
turned out the members of the Buckeye
would appear in the ranks of the compa
nies of which they were members.
On motion of Mr. K. F. Hayward Mr. J.
II. Arbogast was
of the brigade, and in a neat speech he ac
cepted the position, thanking the meeting
for tiie honor done him.
The names of the officers of the old conv
panies were read from the lluttaliim Ilcainl
and the places of one or two were filled.
'Mr. W. S. Huffman, captain of Company
A, having removed to the west could not.
of course, serve, and Captain J. S. Miles
was elected in his stead. Mr. James Bax
ter was elected captain of Company B, and
Messrs. J. C. Holloway and W. A. Stout

of C and D. Company E was passed, and
Mr. William Robinson was chosen captain
of Company F, and Mr. J. U. Kidder f
Mr. E. M. Campbell will be continued as
adjutant of the battalion.
The meeting adjourned, to meet Monday
evening at the wigwam. Recruiting was
at once begun by the captains, and the

"It lacked but a few minutes of 11
o'clock hen away in the eastern portion of
the drill ground could be plainly discerned

Ohio regiment It was company A on its
way to execute the military maneuvers as
signed by the judges. The ground and
stand In the vicinity were alive with army
men. embrj o critics, and diminutive ven
ders of cigars and peanuts. A hearty
cheer greeted the company as the men
stacked arms, and it was renewed on sev
eral successive occasions as they emerged
from what to the uninitiated was chaos into

boys with bouquets and the officers with
baskets of tlowers. The company stuck
the bouquets in the muzzles of their rifles,
and shouldering anus marched off the field,
giving place to the Toledo cadets.
"The cadets were accorded an ovation as
they drew up. Their blue tunics, with
white epaulettes and white-plumed helmets,
made them a Ctfftspicunus figure where all
were conspicuous. This is the corps that
objections were urged against because they
violated the rules governing the encamp
ment and showed up two da) s too late.
The decision of the judges is reserved, and
their right to engage in the competition is
bridged over. It Is rarely that one seeso
finely trained a body. Storm after storm
of applause greeted them as they executed
oue movement more intricate than another,
and the conclusion of tlieslriil was the sig
