How the Verdict ! Received by the
Grief Over the Death of a Beloved Rela
tive Makes Them Almost In
different to It.
Father and Ron Nbot-A Mlaelns; News

Taylorvillk, til., Jan. 3.-Iiitslii-gence
of tho verdict in the Bond vase was
received bere last night loo lata foi general
circulation. When, ibis morning, It 'be
came generally known tbat Montgomery,
Petlui and" Clementi bad been acquitted,
tbe feelinir was simply tbat Justice can no
longer be procured from the courts.
Tbe three accused men are not wholly with
out friends here. These friends have kepi
quiet all alooit, but are now
exiling out and indorsing the
action of tbe Jury. Col. Bond,
sod wife and Miss Emma Bond arrived
here yesterday from Hlllsboro to attend tbe
funeral of their late deceased relative wbo
suicided last Tuesday. The grief over this
loss to their family has deadened tbem to
tbe effect of tbe verdict. Col. Bond was on
the streets tbls morning, but did not bave
mueh to say He feels, no doubt, the
shock of the suicide sod tbe adverse veidict
keenly, and his face bears
MARKS OF MUCH BUFFKRIKO
In answer to a question as to his opinion
of the verdict, be said that tbe alibi was
tnnstrnne for the Jury. De bad not counted
on a eonvictlnn. He this ts tbat the prose
cution did ail they could do Mr. John
Drennsn. who so shrewdly conducted tbe
prosecution, said tbls morning that the
verdict was a surprise, but when be came
to look at tbe Instructions be could not see
how tbe Jury couid do otherwise tban ac
quit. "All tbat I could do 1 have done,"
The funeral of tbe lite A. D. Bond took
place tbls afternoon at tbe Christian cburcb
wltb an immense crowd In attendance.
Tbis suicide, wltb tbe adverse verdict, has
done much to revive tbat feeling wblcb
once culminated In an attempted lynching
of tbe men, but any fears tbat the feellnit
will show Itself in the ssme manner again
are without ground. Tbe weaiber is so
cold bere as to preclude tbe gathering of
men to open air. They
Cannot mekt together
and talk matter! over. Tbe accused men
have taken no precautions against lynching

Doable Execution at Newark.
Nkwahk, Jan. 3. Tbe prison usher,
befern daybreak tbit morning, preparatory
to tbe double banging of Robt. Martin and
James B. Graves, took tbe prisoners
in the east corridor for breakfast at an early
bour and Immediately took tbem to the oth

for the gallows. Martin and the ulergy .
men fevere.illy recited prayers. Mailin

much attention. He was crying like

St Lot IB, Jan. 3. With tbe crash like
tbe firing of an 80-ton gun, part of the
front wall of Lirkio & Scheffer's cbemicsl
works at Nos 213 and 213 Clark avenue, let
go and burled itself across' the street st
11:20 o'clock this morning. Immediately
behind th- dvlng brlckt and debris came a
bor of pasty white lime and alcohol; to
thick and so white tbat the bouses up and
down tbe street look now ss tbouub tbey
bad been freshly whitewashed. Tbe firm
of Larkin A Scbeffer own tbe buildings on
both sides ot Clark avenue, and consequent
ly -tli'tbe damage done was confined to their
own piemlses. It was tbe great chloroform
rit that bad exploded.
Tbis morning tbe chlorate of lime snd
alcohol were placed in the 'tank as usual,
but it teems tbat tbe tubes leading out of
tbe vat were frozen, and hence there was
no eocape fr tbe chloroform which
formed. At toon as enough gas was gen
erated to break tbe tank, everything let
go, and tbe bead of tbe vat, with part of
tbe wall, went sailing across tbe way. Had
tbe explosion been delayed a httie, tbe
most serious consequences might have en
surd from tbe distribution of a large lot of
chloroform in tbe neighborhood. Even as
it was a heavy and nausiatiog smell banes
about tbe rulnt.
Tbe only person at all burt by tbe ex
plosion wasDan'l. Da van, who got bis left
eye filled full of lime, burning it badly.
Tbe wife of ooe of tbe workmen In the
fsctory. who lives in tba second story of tbe
building across tbe street from tbe ex
plosion, ft tbe mother of a young baby.
Tbe excitement following tbe crash was
too much for her and sbo became bisteri
ral and bad to be carried from tbe build
tog. the damage will not amount to more
than a couple of thousand dollars all told.

A. R. Taylor, who in the previous case

"Well, you know, tbe oourt, under this

connected wltb tbat trial. If on next Fri
day week Judge Adamt decldet that tbes
proceedings were null and Told, and wj are
pretty sure be will do to, then Campbell re
mains chief of police, without any other ac
tion. . Tbe fact will be tbat he bas never
been removed, and of course, tbat wil
make bim Chief In fulls without puttm;

2u0 Chestnut Street, I
St. Louis, Jan. 2, 14
Tfc the (ilobe-Dmoerat:
My Ukar Mr. Editor-You reveal a
severe attack of hallucination. Tbit It
cbronic with you In all mattert concerning
it) self. I. bave not written, sent, author
iz n or been privy to any tucb dispatch as
y u t.liarxe me with tending to tbe National
Hi puli Mean. Tbe action tbat I bave taken
v a ni"' ni ber of one of the committees of
tb two Republican organizations In tbe
city, in connection witb tbe two sub-corn-mi
ttees of tbe same, wu merely as in duty
bound to secure, In the interests of tbe
party, and of tbe then united party tbat
vested mc witb tbe trust a joint call, and
united action for tbe future, aud one con
vention of the Republicans, city and state,
vs hu h action Is of record and speaks for it
self and cannot be misconstrued er mis
represented, except by thine who
detilre to do - so. I do hope
that you and Van Horn
have not been manufacturing a mare's nest
when all of our exertions should be in tbe
direction of harmony and unity. Tbe call
ing of conventions to lake party matters in
to consideration, It, at tbit late date, all
that the committee! have to do, and when
Vailed, virtually ends tbe dutlea ot tbe
same. The pending question is. shall the
committees avoid future division and dis
aster, and shall there not be Joint calls and
one tet of conventions throughout the ttate.
This should not be, and is not a bard
proposition to decide. Those wbo favor
united action and conventions represented
by delegates from the whole and a united
parry will talk and vote aye. Those
opposed will vote nay. I bave
voted aye and the proposition bas
unanimously passed in our city
Committee, tbe one that represents 344 pre
cincts . and 732 precinct committeemen.
Up.in the conventions called, representing
tbe whole party, w,li, devolve ail questions
lor which they are called, and all matters
of party policy, party management, and
party managers, and the delegated repre
sentatives wbo go up from a reunited con
stituency will buvo tbe control of and tbe
deciding- of tbe same. Tbe conflicting
and divided committees have notbiug to do
with dociding wuat tbe convention shall or
shall not do, nor will tbe Joint committees
be vested with any such power beyond tbe
customary practice of naming tbe time and
place of holding such conventions and tbe
positlous to be nominated for,
and tbe election of new committees.
When the State Convention meets un
der joint call, then the existing State
committee!! will give way to the new com
mittee elect , I t y it. After a call a State
com m Hi it n :.! ,iot to perform until the
assembling uf tbe convention so called. So
tbat tbe city and State committees bsve
but one duty to perform really and tbat it
calling conventions or meetings that thnll
create their successors. The primary duty
of all Republicans whether vested wltb
committee powers and duties or not but
phrticularly witb committeemen it will be
conceded, is to secure unity and success
and avoid division and consequent defeat.
You should not after your repeated claims
and assertions that tbe 129,000 Republican
votes in tbe State last fall were behind you
and backing you up be now afraid or show
any signs of fear of a united and jointly
called convention, city or State,
representing the whole party. Let, my
dear Mr. Editor, all of your party griev
ances be submitted to a convention of tbe
whole reunited party, Qo to such majority
conven lions and concert with tbe Republi
cans of tbe city and State. For ten years
and over you bave been misted. You and
sny one from your office bave been missed
from all Republican conventions in tbe city
and Suite, us a delegate. Let me say tbat
I bave not favored separate action by either
city or State committees, and that lam only
executing now my convictions and praetlces
of tbe past. You will recollect my
resolution and action proposed In the
Regular State Committee of 1870
and 1871 after the disastrous division of
1S70, for tbe then reunion of tbe party
which was made tbe basis of that reunion
and of the joint call tnd one Slate conven
tion In 1872. You will alto recollect tbe
more recent efforts at Joint action, my reso
lutions of March and October last In tbe
City committee, for Joint action, which
resolutions all of them were adopted by the
committee to which tbey were presented.
So unity and joint action Is nothing new to
me or to tbe committee with wblcb I bave
been connected, and I bave neyer been con
nected wltb any but regular Republican
committees. But somehow when tbe op
portunity offers, you oppose, that is, your
paper opposed all of tbe above named reso
lutions and propositions State tnd city, tnd
you seem to avoid tbe subject of unity tnd
Joint action si a mad do; does ws
ter. But you cannot avoid the
responsibility that tbe party attaches to the
question. If there is a reasonable objec
tion or argument to the proposed basis of
reunion yon bave failed to see or to present
it. You aimed st one tbat Ibe Slate con
vention was called for April 14th in 1880,
five days later only than tbe Van Horn
But let me remind you that there wat no
tlxty dayt limit tben it now in the National
call that ours was not the first State con
vention called at It tbe Van Horn and that
further, Ibe State committee of tbat year,
of wbicb I wat chairman, declined to take
action in i calling a convention
until after tbe creat Re
publican ttatet had led off. Tns disinter
tiled public will tee the difference nod the
weakness of your attempted point. (To
hone tt Republlcani tbonld be afraid of Joint
hirnonlout action, aad the majority will
and expression of the united voice of the
whole party. Let ut, my dear Mr. Editor,
seek tbat united majority voice tnd abide
by it. Wltb tbe isterled 12U.0O0 votes be
bind you, you, above all others, most oer
talnly cannot afford, by any opposition se
eret or open to Joint action and one set of
conventions, city or ttate, to admit even by
Implication and thereby expose on evident
admission of fear ot tbe majority.
Iam content, my dear Mr. 'Editor, to
submit to Joint conventions and to abide by
the vote ot the majority, now, as always.
Tou will recollect further tbat I was in fa
Tor ot Joint action in tbe sprinz of 1880,
when, because cbairman of the State Com
mittee, I invited your Mr. Houser to con
ference, for the purpote of taking part In
the preliminary caucus and committee
meetings of tbe year. But he exhibited an
indisposition to joint action. I endeavored
to do my duty to tbe party regardless ot any
personal dlfferenoet and did it. So now
the two tub-committees throwing all the
past to tbe rear unite In recommendations
for tbe future, and I, my dear Mr. Editor,
say to you In tbe tame free, frank disin
terested wty, let ut bave the benefit oi
your wise countel and presence In all of the
conventloni of tbe party in behalf of ttt fu
ture Interest tnd success.
The party needs your 129,000 votes,
Tben no vote should be lost, not even a
minority vote. Let there be no proscrip

political rights. Let m have above all

RW YORK'S CHARITY BALL.
Tbe Paablonable Public Ball of eotaana
New York, Jan. 8. Tbe distinctively
fashionable public ball of Now York soci
ety, "the Charity," will take place thlt
evening at the Metropolitan Opera House,
This ball wat originally organi zed in 1854 as
a calico ball, and hu been held annually
ever tinco for the benefit of one of tbe
most deterving of New York charities, the
Nursery and Child's Hospital. It has al
ways enlisted tbe tnterest ot society people
to a greater extent tban any other publlo
ball. Until the organization of the
Patriarchs and tbe F. C. D. C. Delmonlco
balls In 1872, It wat attended by the mem
bers of the mott fashionable circles. Tbe
debutantes alwayt made their appearance
there, and from every standpoint it wu '
considered the great society eveot of tbe
THE CIRCLE OF SOCIETY
grew larger, tbe most fashionable set began
to feel that It needed more exolusive organ
izations, and tbn led to tbe foundation ot
tbe Patriarcbt and F. CD. C. bat's. Thete
undoutedly injured tbe charity ball in tbe
matter of attendance of tbe most prominent
people, but not pecunlarly, for It has never
ceased to be tbe fashion to purchase and
tell u many tickets u possible. Tbe man-,
agers, who are all well-known society
people, attended, but after leading tbe
grand march and taking part In tbe open
ing quadrille, generally went home and left
tbe rest ot tbe publio to dance tbe night
away. The ball hu always, up till tbit
year, been held In the Academy of Music,
and generally near the end of tbe teuon.
Tbe manageri finding tbat tbe absence of
the most fashionable set and the holding of
the ball at a time when people were begin
WEARY OF OAIETT,
wu bound t detract ultimately from mak
ing It tbe success of former years, deter
mined to make a new departure tnls season
by holding it In tbe new bouse, where there
were no associations to be objected to,
early in tbe winter, and by usinu, every en
deavor to bave tbe Delmonlco set present,"
they hope to prevent the bail't prestige
from further waning. The large num
ber of managers, each of whom Is furn
ished wltb six tickets to dispose
of, bave used in consequence extra
ordinary exertiont to sell them to tbelr
friends, and with tbe strong inducements
above mentioned and tbe novelty of tbe
first bail In tbe opera house, there is every
reason to believe tbat It will be one of tba
most brilliant and fashionable affairs New
York has seen for years. Tbe majority of
the stockholders bave retained tbeii boxes,
andthe number of these boxes permitting
of the formation of numerous parties, will
also . reatly aid tbe ball's success. Nearly
all tbe boxes uot taken by tbe stockholders
bave been sold, but tbe full list will not be
completed Until tbis afternoon. Tbe pre
parations at tbe opera bouse, under tbe df
rection of Mr. Tlllotsoo.are very complete.
Tbe entire auditorium is floored over on a
level with tbe stage, and witb tbe latter

Railings surround the steep stairway near

made to decorate the auditorium, but tbe
