THE LATEST CLUE,
Highly Sensational and Altogether
Mary Churchill Thought to be in New
Mexico-Beginning of the Argument
in the Frank James Cue The Yel
low Fever Reduction of the Tobacco
Tai News in General.
Si. Louis, Sept. 3. Tbo latest theory
about Mian Mary Ctitircbill'i in) titer linn
disappearance, is to the effect that the ia in
New Mexico with her old icbool teacher,
A. F. Caldwell, late a merchani In Tope
ka, Kaa., and now a refugee from hit
crt.-ditork. For aeveral years Caldwell wi
principal of the Stoddard school, and for
sojie time prevloua to his rellnfjuinhiHs that
position Mary wua knowa to hnvo been
hi pet pupil. Their intimacy Van al-moi-t
at nuiketl aa that of a former one
exiting between Caldwell and another
youni; lady, who, hitn:e the n-nv a ' it i
created thereby, ha been a society belle.
Caldwell wa., and is now, a tine looking
m.in, fund of female oclcty, and nude
himnelf quite familiar with a number of bit
young pupils. Hia attentions were of Mich
a flattering nalur and so a lroitly adilre"!
as not to create auspicioni of evil intent.
Consequently these innocent pirls, feeling
too well pleaned with the cotiipliinents :md
favors received from their handonie prin
cipal, illil not care at the time: to make
mention of hi atu-ntions, even to tin it
own parents. Now, however, this M:ite of
affairs has gradually leaked out, and in
more than one household Caldwell'
repuution as a ladies' man ia well -tariilsti-(l
Col. Churchill tcild this mornini,': "I
do not yet know how much wei.'ht to
give the Chad well clue. It was first
given me several daya ago by detectives
under a pledge of secrecy. Of c ourse I
am aware of the fact tbat Mary was Cald
well's pupil for over three years, but I did
not know of the existeuee of any gn at in
timacy between tbera. He never viM'ed
my tome. I occasionally met him on the
street, but have not seen him for eirlit -en
months at least. I am ready and anxioti
all times to hear of anything thai may po--i-bly
throw light on the muter, and 'jeln ve
in'teatifyinz all stories tbat come to
me. ' '
Mrs. Churchill could give no new in
formation to day. She said another man,
claiming to tie a private detective,
called at the bouae thi tnornins' and offered
to take the case, but was not satisfied with
the reward plan, ife wanted to bo paid for
bis time. She referred httn to her hushan 1.
as she bad all the other.
She laughed when asked her opinion of
the theory that the girl had elopd with
Mr. Caldwell, her forme school principal,
and declared it the most nonsensical story
she bad ever heard.
A gentieman, well-known in the city,
but who bck'ged to baft? hi name sup
pressed, said subsequently that he wa
deeply irapr&8d with tbe Caldwell
story, and wouM have jumped to the
same conclusion long ago bad be known
Caldwell was here rece-Kly. lie knows tbe
ex-principal well, and says that be was
never married but once.
A brief summary of the reasons which
led to the teller tbat Caldwell and Miss
( burcbil! have eon away together, there
fore, may be based upon th-ir wvll-Uiown
previous intimacy; Caldwell' reputation
and bis presence to tbn city Jnt previous
to her flight; her protracW absence with
out communication with ber family, which
can well be accounted for by
a trip to Mexico, and also the
conviction entertained and ex
pressed by her parents that it w as a case
of elopement. Caldwell' haiy and mys-erlou-s
disippearauce from Kansas City on
tbe Thursday following ti Sunday of Mis
Churchill's departure, wtarh it is thought
wit secured by tbe "power of money."
and it must also be retwrabered that even
a young girl like Mia Ciiut chill could
easily disguise btmcsf so a ui deceive any
one. A 1lt.rt4l trial n.
New Yobk, Sept. 3. A pr4iger train

both trains got on tbe ami o line the Long
Reach train wa not many minutes behind

Kockaway iraln, it n said, refused U pay
tbeir fare, and the etdctor halted Just
around the curve at Springfield station,
about three rulks south anlj ael of .Jamai
ca, to put tbem off. There was cMiiilr
able delay, and the conductor of tbe Kork
away train, George S. John sou, says that
i brakmn M seat back to flag the Long
Beach train. At all event before the Far
Kockaw av train wa under wy, the Lont:
Beach train w a heard thundering around
the curve, and in a secnd It dashed into

cars. The Kockaway train ' due at
Springfield three minute befoie the Long
Beach train, and the conductor of the tirst
train kin w w hen be stopped that the second

The rear car of the first
train, a baggage-car and smoker,
were cruhed, and the laitt-r partly tele.

of f.'4 Third avAiitie, was In this front

killed, and two unknown men near him
were also killed. Stories differ as to the
number of persons Injured. Th" train

while the passengers say" that fully eleven
were more or leas Injured, a wrecking
train was sent nut from Long Manil City at
8:15 with lr . (ieulnr, the company' sur

Nkw Yoiik, Sept. 8. -Tho amalgamation
of the Bankers and AfcrcaanUi', the South
ern and the American Rapid Telegraph
companies, If the present plan Is carried
out, will be completed this week. The
samo persons who controlled the Bunkers
and Merchants' and the Southern liavo ar
ranged to purchase ''majority of the stock
of tho Rapid. Nolhicg remain to be done
but to transfer the stock to tbo persons who
have bargained fur it. A gentleman who
took purl In the transaction said that a ma
jority of the stock in both the Bankers and
Merchant' and the Southern,
which now operates as uno
system, was lodned on tho name,
of A. W. Dlmock, tbe president of the
former company. Tim Intention was to
put tbe majority of the stock of the Rapid
about to be pttreliased In Mr. Dhnoek'
hands, arid In that way the consolidation of
the three companies would be practical, al
though not actual. Tbe reason thu three
companies were not merged In one under
a s tr.'lo nainn was tbat tbe laws of some
states through which the lines psed did
not allow the consolidation or basing of
competing line. Whim all the companies
were put tinder the same control slrns
would be displayed in tbe offices of each,
saying tbut messages would be taken to be
transmitted by any one of them.
I be Frank Jniueai Trial.
t.At l.A l in. Mo., ;sept. 3. Judge Good
man not having completed his instructions
to the jury court did not convene until
half-past 9 o'clock. Mis. Fran!, Jj ines,
plai :lv tin ed in a grey street costume, ac
t'ompuiiirid by her little boy, made her first
appearance in tbeeoitit room during the
tritl, and took a seat beside her husband.
The defendant is looking quite haggard,
and has been in ill health for several days.
The court said that each side would be
given ten hours in which to present their
argument, which will permit the case to go
to the jury by Wednesday no.in. The order
of speaking was announced by the
court us follows: First, state; second,
defense; third, defense; fourth, state;
fifth, defense; sixth, defense; seventh,
Mate; eight, defense; ninth, State. Thero
wa some objection Ui this order upon tbe
p3, t of the defense, which did not relish
the idea of having Johnson sandwiched
between Shank. in and Wallace. The law
yers cjiild not aurec, so tbe court arbitra
rily fixed the order as ahove. To this the
defense noted an exception. The court,
upon motion of Mr. Shanklin. extended
the time of tbe def' use to twelve houri,
ami ordered that court hereafter convene at
!i o'clock. This carry the argunn tits over
to Wednesday niuht. The instructions for
s ate and defendant were then read. The
iii-tructioiis for murder in the second
degree mentioned above dm'
not amount to much, as it
can only be returned as separate entire
ly ftora tbe robbery. Tbe killing of Mc
Millan by any member of the gang while
pursuing the robbery, if defendant is be
lit ved to have been one of the party, is
murder in the first degree. The Instruc
tions a- to the credibility of w itnesses were
very clear and favorable to the defense, the
jury being iLtrin-ted that the testimony of
associate In crime require corroboration
to the extent of certainly. Mr. W. I).
Hamilton, prosecuting attorney of Daviess
county, opened the case for tbe slate. He
dwell upon the ereal importance and
complimented the jury in the approved
sty l and denied that the state had used any
unfair means in the gathering of testimony
acainst tr:e defendant. He besought the
jury to beware of utide influences and
prejudices; to cant them off and look calm
ly at the law and evidence. Tae speaker
recalled the horror and indigna
tion of the people in the countrv all
about, when, despite the civilization of the
agf , despite the strength of law, that a rail
road train in a popular and thriving section
of a great state coii.d be thus stopped and
robbed, and that the bandits could thus
escape in the twiukling of an eye and leave
no trace behind them. The circumstance
immediately surrounding the crime were
detailed and the i.lalm made that the state
had made good every claim of conspiracy.
The evidence of I'ick Liddell, corroborated
as it ha.s been, is sufficient to convict, and
there i sufficient evidence to convict out
side of Hick Liddell. To deny Frank
James' pre.en'-e al Winston after e.tabiish
ing his presence with the gang in the
viciuitv would be worse than boiled
down nonsense. The defense admitted
the pretence of the sans at Win
ston, but violently, and in defiance of rea
son and the evidence, deny the presence of
defnedatit at the roidiery. Liddell' evi
dence has been corroborated in every par
tiftir by unitnpeached and disinterested
witnea.es. He predicted that the defense
would lavib much attention upon Kick
Liddell, a self ennfetovd murderer and
horse-thief, but asked the Jury to remem
ber that the rubber in hunting their asso
ciates generally picked on such a man
as Pick Lid dell. The high standing of the
Iuviess eo.nty witnesses who had met the
gang before the roMtery was dwelt upon y.
length, and the entire testimony was casu
ally r viewed- At ll.iji Mr. Hamilton
lioncluded, wnen court adjourne J until 1:30
p. ra., at which time John M. Glover open
ed for tbe defense.
JOHN M. (Jl.nVER
opened by declaring his intention of (lis
eusing tn- testimony of I.;ck Liddell and
the Ford'- outfit from Ray county, but he
would di-cuss ih, evidence of the reputable
citizens of Iiaviess county, who claimed to
have seen the robbers previous to the
affair at Winston, and by their state
ments to prove that there were but
four men at the robbery. The speaker
tnen read extracts of the testi
mony all beiring upon Hie
four men theory and he shooting by Wood
II, te, who might readily lie mistaken for
Frank Jam.'. Ibek Liddell' testimony,
and that of all other witnesses, neyer
ihowed more than four men together at a
time. '1 h - fifth tn iti, according to Lid
dell, was alwavs on the train. iod knows

What the Leading Journalist of the
Nation's Metropolis Said Yesterday
Nkw Yokk, Septa. Tbe World say:
'Will the Garfield avengers, who were to
spread their Influence In every home In the
country, allow tbe Stalwart 'Boneflciary of
Assassination' to be nominated as hi own
successor)1 Will Sherman forget the treach
ery practiced upon him by Foster at, tho
C hicago convention? Will the third term
ghost be laid" Will Blaine continue tho
quiet pursuit of literature? Will Roscoe
Conkling's friends allow the greatest Re
publican of the nation to remain In private
life? These are interesting questions. In
view of the alleged Improving prospect of
the party It would be well if our Republi
can contemporaries would throw some
light upon them."
The Tribune says: "The country Is not
going to believe that the Democrat!: party
has ceased to desire a parlisnn civil service,
a debauched currency or fraudulent elec
tions merely because of professions and
promises, or the nomination of a well
meaning candidate, so long a its change of
purpose is shown in a complete revolution
in thu t.'ongressional action of tho party.
If we are to believe tbat the leopard has
changed its spots there must be some proof
that he no longer eats people when he ha a
The Sun says: "Ohio Is the onlyute
that hold an election previous to Novem
ber. It is supposed in some quarter tbat
the result will have an important bearing
upon the Presidential election. We think
this is a mistake. Ohio elects state officers
and members of Congress in Octo
ber, isKl, and tho result of that contest may
exert some influence upon the Presidential
election, which occurs four weeks later. It
is this final Judgment, pronounced near
the close of the Presidential campaign,
which will, perhaps be felt In tho national
contest. There i another reason why the
result in Ohio this fall will have
slight effect, upon the Presidential struggle
of lKSt. The main luo in Ohio now is the
expediency of the Scott liquor law. This
seems to dwarfall other questions. Tbe
Republican party Is in favor of sustaining
tbe law, and the Democratic party is for
its repeal. The outcome of tne conflict will
have little or no effect tipon the struggle of
next year, for the obvious reason that the
Scott liquor law will not enter Into the con
test of IsM at all. Itisnot the vote of five
weeks hence that is to affect the Presiden
tial campaign, It is rather tho coming No
vember elections in some of the great states
like New York that will set the current In
motion for I8S4."
The Times say-: "Mr. Chalmers, of
Mississippi, is In a fair way to get under
stood, which would probably be as great a
misfortune a could happen to htm. The
Hon. John R. Lynch, chairman of tbe Re
publican committee of the state, has Writ
ten a letter pointing nut that what Mr.
Chalmers wants is not so much the destruc
tion of Bourboniam as the resurrection of
Cbilmers to the height of political Import
ance, which he occupied for a short time,
and from which he was summarily tumbled
by his own party. The Republicans of tbe
state, on the other hand, are ready to make
honest alliances with respectable Demo
crats who are opposed to the Bourbon rule,
but they are not willing to act as a cat's
paw for the disreputable hero of Fort Pil
low, all of whrch the administration, now
that it has got through ti.sbiog, would do
well to make a note of. ' '
