New Mexico with ber old School teacher,
A. F. Caldwell, late a merchant In Tope
ka, Kan., and now a refugee from lil ,
creditors. For several yuan Caldwell w is
principal of the Stoddard school, and (or
nojie time previous to his relinquishing that
position Mary was known to have been
Ills pet pupil. Their intimaey was al
most ah marked as that of a former one
existing between Caldwell and another
yunif lady, who, aiiicc the seii-aijuii
(rented thereby, has been a sneiety belle.
Caldwell wa., and is now, a tine looking,
nun, fond of female sodely, anil made
himself quite familiar with a number of hi
young pupils. His attentions were of Mich
a flattering nature and so adroitly addressed
as not to create suspicions of evil itiP ii!.
Consequently these innocent girls, feeling
too well pleased with the compliments ami
favors received from their handsome prin
cipal, did not care at the time to make
mention of his attentiotm, even to Unit
own parents, Niw, however, tills state of
affairs has gradually leaked out, and in
more than one household Caldwell's
reputation as a tallies' man is well es
tablished. Col. Churchill said this morning: "I
do not yet know how imieh weight to
Rive the Ch&dwell clue. It was first
given me several day ago by detectives
tinder a pledge of secrcsy. Of C 'Uise !
am aware of the fact that Mary was Cald
well's pupil for over three years, but I did
not know of the existence of any great in
timacy bet wren them. He never visited
my Lome. I occasionally met him on the
street, bul have not seen him for eight -.-n
months at teast. I am ready and anxious
all times to hear of anythiug that may pni
bly throw light on the matter, and 'jelieve

Mrs. Churchill could give no new in
formation to day. She said another man,
claiming; to tie a private detective,
called at the bouse this morning and offered
to take the cue, but was not saiistlud with
the reward plan. Ife wanted to he paid for
his time. Sbe referred bim to ber husband .
as she hud all the others.
bhe laughed wben asked her opinion of
the theory that the (?irl had eloped with
Mr. Caldwell, her forme school principal,
and declared it the most nonsensical story
she bail ever heard.
A gentleman, weJl-known In tho city,
but who begged to have his name, sup
pressed, said subsequently that he was
deeply Impressed with the Caldwell
story, and would have Jumped to the
same conclusion long ago had he known
Caldwell was here rece illy. He kuows the
ex-principal well, and says that be was
never married but once.
A brief summary of the reasons which
led to the belief that Caldwell and Miss
Churchill have cone away together, there
fore, may be based upon their well-known
previous intimacy; Caldwell's reputaiion
and his presence in this city Jiut previous
to her flight; her protracted absence with
out communication with her family, which
can well bo accounted for by
a trip to Mexico, and also the
conviction entertained and ex
pressed by ber parents that It was a case
of elopement. Caldwell's busty and mys
erious disippearance from Kansas City on
the Thursday following tw Sunday of Miss
Churchill' departure, whrch it Is thought
was secured by the "power of inumy,"
and it must also be remembered that even
a young girl like Miss Churchill could

New York, Sept. 3. A pasaeuger train
left Far Roekaway last night, aij another
left Long Beach at precisely the same time
7:30 o'clock. Long Beach is furlhcreast,
but the road from Far Kockawuv is more
roundabout, and the result was that when
both trains got on the mainline the Long
Beach train wan not many minutes behind
the other. Some piwieugerx on the Far
Kockaway train, it In saki, refused to pav
their fate, and the conductor halted Just
around the curve at Springfield sl.itlon,
nhotit three miles noui-b an:lcat of Jamai

Kockaway train was under way, the I. on.'
Beach irain was heard thundering around
thn curve, and In a second it dashed
the forward train and wrecked the last two
cars. Tho Kockaway train was due at

train knew when he stopped Unit I lie second

Xr.w Vokk, Sept. 3. Tho. amalgamation
of the flankers and Merchant', the South
ern and the American Rapid Telegraph
companies, if the present plan is carried
out, will bo completed this week. The
same persons who controlled the Banker
and Merchants' and the Southern have ar
ranged to purchase a .majority of the stock
of the liapid. Nothing remains to be done
hut to transfer the stock to tho persons who
have bargained for it. A gentleman who
took purl in the transaction said that a ma
jority of the stock In both tho Bankers and
Merchants' and the Southern,
which now operates as one
system, was lodged on the name
of A. W. Dimock, the president of the
former company. Thn intention was to
put the majority of the stock of tho K.ipid
about to tie purchased in Mr. Plmock's
hands, and In that way the consolidation of
the three companies would be practical, al
though not actual. The reason the three
companies were not merged in one under
a sin-.'le iisjne was that tho laws of some
slat.-s through which the lines passed (lid
not allow the consolidation m- leasing of

were put under the same control signs

(iai.i.aii.n, Mo., sept. 3. Judge fiOOll'
man not having completed his instructions
t'lthe jury court did not convene until
half-past !l o'clock. Mr. Frank Ja nit s,
' al ilv dng eil iu a grey street costume, ac
companied by her little boy, made her first
appearance in ihecouit room during the
tn il, and took a seat beside tier husband.
The feiiilaiit is looking quite haggard,
and bus been in ill health for several (lays.
The court said Hint each side would be
given ten hours in which to present their
arguments, which will permit the case to go
to the Jury by Wednesday noon. The order
of speaking v.'as announced by the
court in follows ; Kirst, state; second,
defense; third, defense; fourth, state;
fifth, defense; sixth, defense; seventh,
Slate; eight, defense; ninth, State. There
was some objection to this order upon the
part of thn defense, which did not relish
tin; Idea of having Johnson sandwiched
between Shank. in and Wallace. The law
yersc.uld not agree, so thn court arbitra
rily fixed the order as above. To this the
defense noted an exception. The court,
upon motion nf Mr. Shanklln. extended
be time of the defense to twelve hours,
and ordered that court hereafter convene at
ft o'clock. This carry the arguin. tits over
to Wednesday night. The Instructions for
state and defendant were then read. The
instructions for murder iu the second
degree mentioned above dues
not amount to much, as it
can only be returned as separate entire
ly from the robbery. The killing of Mc
Millan by any member of the gang while
pursuing the robbery, if defendant is be
lit-vnd to have been one ot the parly. Is
murder in tho first degree. The instruc
tions a to the credibility of witnesses were
very clear ami favorable to the defense, the,
jury being ii.structed that the testimony of
as-oeiates in crime requires corroboration
toth extent of certainty, Mr. W. I).
Hamilton, prosecuting attorney of llaviess
county, openi d the case for the slate. He
dwelt upon ihe great importance and
complimented the jury in the approved
style and denied that the state hail used any
unfair means In Ihe gathering of testimony
against the defendant. He besought the
jury to beware of outside influences and
prejudices; to csist them off and look calm
ly at the law and evidence, Toe ipeaker
recalled the horror and indigna
tion of the people in the countrv all
about, when, despite the civilization of tho
agi , despite the strength of law, that a rail
road train In a popular and thriving section
of a great state could he thus Mopped and
rohhed, and that the bandits could thus
escape in the twinkling of an eye and leave
no trace behind them. Tho circumstances
immediately surrounding the crime were
detailed and theilaim made that the state
hail made good every claim of conspiracy.
'I he evidence of Pick Lliidell, corroborated
as it has been, Is mflicle nt to convict, and
tin ic is sulHcient evidence to convict out
side of Dick Llddell. To deny Frank
James' pretence al Winston after establish
ing hi presence with the gang in the
icinity would be worse than boiled
down nonsense. The defense admitted
the presence of tho gang at Win
Moti. but violently, and iu defiance of rea
son and the evidence, deny the presence of
deliiedalil at the robbery, Liddell's evi
dence has been corroborated in every par
l,Aitir by unimpeaehed and disinterested
witnesses. He predicted that tho defense
would lavish much altentlon upon Dick
Liddell, a self -confessed inurd-rer and
horse-thief, hul asked the Jury to remem
ber that the robbers in hunting their asso
ciates generally picked on such a man
ii, Dick Llddell. The high standing of the
li ivicss county wiines-ies who bail met the
gang before the robbery was dwelt upon al
length, and the entire testimony was casu
ally reviewed. Al 11:) Mr. Hamilton
concluded, when court arljourueJ until 1:,1U

opened by declaring his intention of (IN-
ciislng th. testimony of pick Liddell and
the Ford's outfit from Kay county, but he
would discuss tin-, evidence of the reputable
citizens of paviess county, who claimed to
have seen the. robbers previous to the
affair at Winston, aud by their state
ments to prove that there were but
four men al the robbery. The speaker
then read extracts of the testi
mony all bearing upon the

Frank James, pick Liddell's testimony,

THE NEW YORK PKF.SS1,
What the Leading Journaliata of tht
Nation's Metropolis Baid Yesterday.
Nkw Y'ORK, Sept 8. The World says:
"Will the Garfield avengers, who were to
spreud their influence in every home in the
country, allow the Stalwart 'Beneficiary of
Assassination' to be nominated as his own
successor)1 Will Sbrrman forgot rhe treach
ery practiced upon him by Foster at the
Chicago conv eutlon? Will the third term
ghost be laid? Will Blaine continue the
quiet pursuit of literature? Will Roseoe
Conkllng't 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 Itepubll
can contemporaries would throw some
light upon them."
The Tribune says: "The country Is not
going to believe that the Democrat! 5 party
has ceased to desire a partisan civil service,
a debauched currency or fraudulent elec
tions merely because of professions and
promises, or thn nomination of a Well
meaning candidate, so long as its change of
purpose is shown in a complete revolution
In the Congressional action of the party.
If we are to believe that tho leopard has

that he no longer eais people when he has a
The Sun says: "Ohio is the only.'state
that, holds an election previous to Novem
ber. It is supposed In some quai ters that
the result will have an important bearing
upon tho Presidential election. We think
this is a mistake. Ohio elects state officers
snd member of Congress In Octo
ber, lf-81, and thn result of that contest may
exert some Influence upon thn Presidential
election, which occurs four weeks later. It
is this final judgment, pronounced near
the close of the Presidential campaign,
w hich will, perhaps he felt In thn national
contest, There is another reason why the
result in Ohio this fall will have
slight effect, upon the Presidential struggle
of IKM. The main issue In Ohio now it the
expediency of the Scoit, liquor law. This
seems to dwarfjall other questions. The
Republican party is In Isvor of sustaining
the law, and the Democratic party is for
Its repeal. The outcome of tne conflict will
have little or no effect upon the struggle of
next year, for the obvious reason that the
Scott liquor law will not enter Into the con
test of ls4 at all. It Is not the vote ot Ave
weeks hence that is to affect the Presiden
tial campaign, It Is rather the coming No
vember elections in some of the great states
like New York that will set the current In
motion for 18.S4."
The Times say: "Mr. Chalmers, of
Mississippi, is In a fair way to get under
stood, w hich would probably ba as great a
misfortune as eou'd happen to hiiu. The
Hon. John K. Lynch, chairman of the Re
publican committee of thn state, has writ
ten a letter pointing out that what Mr.
Chalmers wants is not so much the destruc
tion of Bourbonism as the resurrection of
Chilmcrs to the height of political Import
ance, which he occupied for a short time,
and from which be was summarily tumbled
by bis own party. The Republicans of the
stale, on the other hand, are ready to make
honest alliance 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 fishing, would do
well to make a note of. ' '
