Remarkable Perfection Recently Attained.
New York. March 26.-The mrprUIng
progress recently nniue ov tne new msiai
Telegraph Company Is seriously alarming
manv of the holders of Western Tulou
stock. The lines of this company now ex
tend aa far as Clevoland , and In a few weeks
will connect Chicago with New York. The
companv owns two pateuts known as the
Lcggo automatic ami Gray harmonic sys
tems, by means of which, and a compound
wire, it Is possible to scud messages both
wsvs at th ' wme time and at the rate of
2,000 word- per minute. The compound
wire promises to make a revolution in
telegraphy. The Iron wire Is too lluble to
be Influenced bv storms and other atmos
pheric causes, and copper, such us is usnd
for electric lltrht purposes, Is tootapt to sag
and thus endanger building' and interrupt
tho current. The new compound wire con
sists of a core of steel wire, able to resist a
great tensile strain and covered with cop.
per, which, next to silver, is tho best
known conductor. This wire is ono-thlrd
cheaper than an Iron wire of equal con
ductivity, and Its low resistance
admits of the use of batteries of
only a few cells. Among oiherladvanUges
which the companv promises to tho public
is a method by which private commercial
linns mav ooojiminicato with their corre
spondent's without the knowledge or Inter
vention of the employes of the company.
Thev also promise a postal stamp system,
such aKlsln use In Knglnnd.antf chcup and

concern are Messrs. George D. Roberts
and Henrv Ciimmlngs and Prof. KIKhn

tho concern, and a liberal support on tho
part of (.everal Roston capitalists has as

MORNING, MARCH 27,
The Yonng Man Who Killed His Grand
mother Pleads Guilty of Man
slaughter. St. locie, Maroh J8.-Jn the Criminal
Court at noon to-day Judge Van Wagoner
called the case of Russell ltrown, charged
with murder In the flmdegreo. Mr. Cor
nelius MacBrlde, of MacBrlde and P, N.
Jouea, attorneys for Pat MoGlew, who was
Jointly indloted with Brown, arose and
asked the court to oall tbi cos of McGlew
also. The court so instructed the Sheriff,
and both defendants were given chairs on
the defendant's side of the table. Brown
lm4 not ohanged much by his confinement
more than ho ordinarily would
in the course of his natural growth, a be Is
Just reaching manhood. McGlew, who is
suffering from a painful kidney complaint,
Is much worn down. As the prisoners
took their seats, Acting Circuit Attorney
Jones arose and said:
"In this case, If the court please, I have
made a careful examination of the testi
mony taken before th Grand Jury, and
am. fully satisfied tbat it will not
atMaln a verdict of murder In tbe first
decree, and a a conscientious prosecuting
oillcer I could not ask a Jury to convict
Ihriu of murder in the first degree. It Is
clvstr to ray mind these young men hsd no
Intention of muiderlng Mrs. Dorrls, when
thev went to the Dornss mansion on the
nlglit of the tragedy; therefore It only be
comes a question of what degree of homi
cide they should be convicted, and
as the counsels for defendant
are willing to withdraw
the plea ot not guilty to murder In tbe first
degree, and enter a plea of guilty to man
slaughter In the first degree, I will recom
mend tbat ploa be acoepted and tbe pun
Mimttnt assessed at ten yean in th Peni
tentiary." When the court ssierabled In the after
noon Judge Yan Waggoner stated tbat he
hsd closely examined the esse, and 'that it
was either murder in th tint degree or.
manslaughter in tne tnira degree. He
would, therefore, be compelled to refuse
the offer to plead guilty to manslaughter.
Mr. Jones Immediately called for Jury nd
the trial will go on. This opinion doe not
disqualify Judge Van Waggoner from try
ing the rase as no bo only passed on th
degree ot the orime
On the night of January 28, 1883. Brown
and McGlew killed Mr. Ssrih Henriotta
Dorrls by strangling her. Brown was then
a wild young fellow and among hi other
associates down town was Patrick McGlew,
the co-defondant. They bad boen spend
ing money freely down town drinking,
and toward tbe end of January young
Hrown found himself pressed for funds.
He suggested a nocturnal visit to his old
home, tueDorrlsi mansion, on the corner
of King's Highway A Olive Street,
where bis mother, Mrs. Van
lluren Wisker, his aunt, Mrs. Hal
(lennan, his uncle, Tom Dorriis, and his
grandfather and grandmother, Mr. and
Mis. Gen. Dorrlst, rtildsd with some of
their grandchildren. A buggy was hired
at Jesse Arnot's stable, and both young
fellows drove out to th house, which they
I'eu-liud sometime about midnight. Brown
knew the plaoe well, and on en
trance was easily effected. Mrs,
Gen. Dorriss' room on the
west side ot tbe mansion was visited by the
voung men, as it was expected they would
find some property here tbat could easily
be converted into mony. Brown went to
thu door and called to bis grandmother
that his Uncle Tom was lck and wanted
her. She got up from the bed, on which
Kali McEvoy, a servant, was
also sleeping. Tbe old lady
started out Into tbe hall, where she
was seized by Brown, who caught her by
the throat. Katie McEvoy said another
man entered tbe room and took a watch
from under the pillow, but she was so
frightened that she could do nothing. The
two young men inatohid all the jewelry
they could find, and In taking a finger-ring
from the old lady's hand hor finger
was badlv barked. The old lady
reached tier room, but died tn a few min
utes, and when found by tbe othor mom
be s of the family the body showed un
doubted evidences of death from strangula
tion. Brown was arrested while going out
to the house two days later by Ofllcer
Woodlock, who happenod to
board the lame oar on the Market street
line. McGlew went to Chicago and was
arrested the following week. At a Fourth
street pawnshop the rlngi and watch tuken
from tbe house were found by
the police, and tbesa with tho admis
sions of young Brown gave a full Insight
Into the tragedy. Medio w stated at the
time that be was only acting on Brown's
suggestion, and bis attorneys havo con
ducted his case on this plan from tbe be
