don't think be was capable of knowing
much about revenge when be aid it. His

Mr. Brown now arose and Uii d

SOT VALLEY WALKER.
Ho Hay Several Cltlaoua Who Knew the
St. Louis, Jaa. 18. The most renwrk
able case ot mistakeu Identity in tbe annals
oftbepoiloe departineut is tbat of Walker
Jones, the supposed Valley Walker, and
wbo is now locked up in the oalaboose at
tbe Four Courts. Yesterday a number of
residents of Brldgelon called at tbe Four
Courts for tbe purpose ot Identifying tbu
man, and the majority held tbat tbe pris
oner was not Valley Walker. Dr. Berry,
who sewed up a long gash In Walker's
leg, made the prisoner strip and
examined bim carefully. Tbere was
a little scar ou tbe leg, but tbe phy
sician said tbe wound was not tbe
same and tbe man wai not Valley Walker.
An old colored man, who kuew tbe mur
derer from boyhood, took a look at tbe
prisoner and stated emphatically tbat the
man was not the much-wanted Valley. A
number of other gentlemen wbo bad known
tbe negro when tie was In the service ot
Geu. Frost called, but after scratching
their heads awhile failed to come to any
definite conclusion. Tbe prisoner resern
bles Valley Walker, yet tbe interesting fact
remains tbat it Is not be. Walker bad
straight black balr sod was taller tban tbe
man in the calaboose; besides, the latter
bas curly or kinky hair. "
Tbe authorities in tbe county have been
oa the lookout for Walker since b. killed
tbe old soboaimMuir, and when, as tbev
thought, they bad bim iooated in Fort
Worth, they seat the Information to-tbt
city and Officer Ifewmao was sent to Texas
to bring him back. He fonnd his man in
jail, having been convicted of a obarge of
assault with Intent to kill and aeutenced to
seven years in tbe penitentiary. Tbe Texas
officials waived their rigbftj when informed
that a good ease of murder could be m:ide
out agaluat bim in this city and Newman
brought back the alleged Wilier Walker,
arriving Wednesday mordlng. Those
who knew .the murderer in
timately were sent for, but ooulu not posi
tively identify tbe prisoner as tbe man
wanted. Several, however, did declare
tbat be was Valley Walker. Meanwhile tbe
prisoner smiled a sickly sort of smile and
curled up to the benob. He tells a straight
forward story and saye bis name is Walker
Jones. He was born and rawed In Virginia
and served tbe Union through the war.
After being discharged he went to San
Antonio, where be has lived ever since.
He says he can prove by 100 witnesses tbat
be lived In San Antonio from 1867 until a
few months ago. There is no doubt but be
will get a free ride back to Texas.
Hennepin nt Fits Jobn Porter.
Washington, Jan. 18 The friends of
tbu Hennepin Canal are by no means hope
ful regarding the prospects of tbat enter
prise. Tbekt presentation of the facts in
the case before the Committee on Railways
and Canals, has not produced the Impres
sion they hoped, and there are serious
doubts whether tbey will even get a favor
able report. Even should they get sucb i
report, there is serious doubt as to favor
able action by tbe House and Senate.

ONLY A BUTTON
Bat on Its Evidence Billy Buffee Ma;
Go to the Pen.
A Hibernian Eaplannllon ol Ibe Loe
of lha Lllilo Witness.
St. Louis, Jan. 18. An India rubber
vest button waa a greater toss to Win.
Buffee, a few nighta ago th in would have
been $1,000 In greenbacks; for In all prob
ability Mr. Buffee will go to tbe penlten
tU"y as a result of tbe lose. It will be
remembered that when the bouse of Mr,
Futz on Grand avenue, was burglarized,
the burglars collooted several ot the large
pieces of silver plate near the kitchen door,
preparatory to carrying themott when they
bad looted the sleeping rooms.
Iu their sudden flight thsy left this
silverware where tbey bad . placed it,
and next morning OtUcor, Hurley found on
the Utile, close to tbe valuable goods, au
India rubber vast button, with some of tbe
threads still attached to it. Mrs. Fusz com
pared it with tbe button on all tbe gar
ments intbe house and found nothing Ilk
It. Hurley pocketed the clew, and when,
early the next morning, he entered a N jrth
Broadway saloon In that region, to take a
look at some rough character who congre
gsie there, be noticed tbat on tbe vest of
young fellow named Buffee were
tivo buttons corresponding with the
oun he bad in his pocket. Closer in
spection showed that a sixth button was
missing from tbe bottom ot the row. Buffos
had a bard reputation and Hurley arrested
bun. N ben questioned about the missing
button, Buffee stated tbat he had cut it off
and s swed it in place of the top button
wbicb be bad lost. This was a Hibernian
explanation, inasmuch as it still left bim
one button short. He protested his Inno-
chic , but Mr. Fusz and his wire are both
confident tbat he la the man whose face
they saw at the bedeido, although tbey
would not swear tbat they are not mis
taken. The button, together with tbe
knowledge that Hiiffee was arrested years
ago for stealing brass from the Laclede
(tolling Mill, and compromised on
a Work House sentence, serves
to confirm thulr belief. . Further
more, It is quite clear that burglars would
not attempt to curry off in tbelrarms a huge
unwrapped silver tray unless they expected
to be able to hide It before going very far,
and 84 Buffee lives witblu a block of tbe
robbed house, this is another circumstance
in support of tbe theory of bis guilt.

Dlitinoncl Joe'n C'artona Experience In
' the RMlwajr Bnelnese.
HotSpkixos, Ark., Jan. 18. Pres'dent
Joseph Kvyuolds. of tbe Hot Springs Rail
way, is in conclave In Malvern, near here,
to-day, with tbe directors of his rosd, con
sidering tbe proposed extension to Pine
Biuff . Mr. Reynolds Im ivoti out that be
will build tbe road with his individual
capiul, although be lays stress on tbe
magnitude of tbo necessary outlay. It is
expected that grouad will be broken on tbe
line by tbe Ut prox. The line will add 50
miles to the Diamond Joe system and will
open up a fine body of timbered
land. The fact tbat tbe estimated coat of
construction is nearly $20,000 a mile, dis
pens? a flavor of uncertainty wmon oan
hardly be reconciled to tbe blgti hopes of the
people. President Reynolds acknowledges
that (he progress of tbe enterprise will not
be ss speedy as desired, owing to bis lode
I endenoe of ontside aid; but the prospects
are good for favorable "deals."
President Reynolds says that tbe Hot
Skiul'b Railroad has proved a poor
investment, whereas tbe public had been
educated to think otherwise. It Is a
well-known and painful fact that his
passenger rates are eight cents s mile, and
tbat freight rates are no less exorbitant. In
view of tbe expensive traffic over tbe line It
must follow tbat notlilug but poor manage
ment could entail tbe discouraging results
the magnate seems to wall over. While
President Reynolds, wbo is a liberal man
witb liberal pretensions, Is bewailing de
pleted coffers and still exacting tight cents
a mile for travel, a majority of tbe otber
Arkansas roads are evidently making
money at three cents a mile and thanking
Providence tbat legislation does not re
strict them to a lower figure.

Perjury, Illea;itlrale Bttble
Npleen. With the Penitentiary
In Ibe Distance.
LaSalle, la., J to. 18. LaSalle has h
luxury of a sensation. For years two fac
tious here, in which Irish blood preponder
ates, have been at war. Eyes have been
blackened and pistols flourished, but no
gore worth mentioning was spilled. A
climax has, however, brought one ot the
ciiief actors to Jail, and only tbe magnan
imity ot bis toes will save bim from the
peulientiary. T. L. O'Connor, an alder
man, with bis brother, M. A. O'Connor,
editor of tbe Times, and for a number ot
yeaia principal of the High School,
are the leaders of one faction; aud
tbe member of tbe law linn, In
which A. J. O'Connor, a cousin to tbe first
mentioned, is a partner, are the leaders of
the other. T. L. O'Connor was charged
with tbn parentage of an llligiilmate child.
The trial of the case bas just taken place.
The defendant at first pleaded not guilty
and testtdjd iu bis own defense. Tne
prosecution brought such strong evidence
in rebuttal of his alleged alibi, that, on the
third day, abandoned by bis lawyer, hn
pleaded kullty aud dccli'cd to get iu irriod
But the fiteud of tbe wronged girl Induced
her to accept tbo judgment of $.V0 allowod
hi r by court and decline the matrimonial
offer. The next step consisted in a warrant
being issued for O'Connor's arrest at thu
instigation of ber attorneys, among
whom the firm mentioned were represent
ed, on a tbarge of perjury. By not settling
the original suit bofore itoaine to trial tbe
unfortunate leader found himself hotly
pursued by vindictive enimles aud, failing
to look before leaping, be Jumped from the
frying pan into tbe tire. He bas procured
bondsmen, but moved forau appeal Iu the
case alluded to, aud pending a decision on
the motion is still In jail.
A.J. O'Connor and his colleagues now
propose to get T. L. O'Connor Indicted by
tbe uext grand Jury, and on condition that

had ot bis presence was when be was Intro

said, as a representative of a corporation
who always performed its contracts within
the time required and bad never asked ad
dltlonal aid nor lentenoy. For this reason
he tbougbt Congress aught not to interfere
in this one lustance. Tbe general outline
of the work of tbe California and Oregon
Road was given. He said work bad been
suspended because the line could only be
built to the Oregon State line, wbere It wai
to connect with the Oregou and California.
Work on the latter, - however, had been
suspended,' making the building of tb
road he represented inexpedient.

picion of being Implicated in the Towusend
outrages, bu oonfeiied tbat bis brother
John and himself ware eonoerued in tbe
murder of Mrs. Maybee and daughter, at
Bretkvllle, on the evening of November
27th, of wbleb a detailed account was given
In these dttpatohea at lha time. He says;
"I know who took Ibe Uvea of Lydia and
Annie Maybee on the evening of Novem
ber 17ih. It waa John B. Tappan, my
brother. He was In the bam when Mr.
Maybee came in. I was not in tbe barn,
but I saw John go in. Ha went in at the
double doors. I was at tbe front side of
my bouse, feeding pigs, when be entered.
When Jobn cboked the old lady to death,
I was in front ot tbe barn and saw hint.
He choked ber te death on tbe barn fl or.
He caught ber wrists In one hand ami took
ber by tbe throat wife the other. 1 saw
bim do It, I was looking through the door.
It was light enouah far me to see the sta
ble. When Jobs, bad ber by tbe threat ebe
ws oa the ground. When she came in for
leaves, John was standing in the stalls
where tbe leaves were. It took 15 minutes
to choke ber tol death. After tbe deed
was done, John ploked ber up and laid her
batik of tbe stable. I saw bim throw leave
over her. He was standing on tbe ar i
fluor near the opening door by ine
stable. I saw the whole thing myself.
After aha waa dead Jehn said, 'I am going
to wall for Annie. I am going to cboke
ber too. It I cboke her no one will know
about it, then we can go to the bouse and
get tbe money. Annie opened the barn
door and stepped in. John grabbed her
rlgbt arm and threw her down on tbe floor
and held ber oy tbe right wrist while be
put bta knee upon ber left arm, and with
bis rlgbt band took ber by tbe throat. She
tried to get away from blra when be
grabbed ber by the arms. She grabbed at
bla face. I saw her band close over
hit nose and mouth. She said,
'Let me to. ' Then be held
ber by ber throat. He carried ber into th e
stable near her mother, and covered ber
with leaves, saving, "Now I'm gotng to
the house." Both he and I went. We
entered by the kitchen door. Old Mr.
Maybee said, "Who's tbere?" John said,
'It's me." Then we wont upstairs to
Mrs. Maybee's room. When Mr. Maybee
knocked on tbe floor I stood by tbe door. I
saw htm do l. Th-n John on me down
stairs and went in iron of Maybee and very
osetoblm. He ran bis band up and
down Maybee's breast uti.l said, "I want
that watch you had two years ago. ' ' May
i t laid, "I aint got It. I am blind. 1
can'tieeto get it." "I know," sat.t
John. Then he said, "I'll kill you,"
and matching bis caue from bim, struck
bim twice on tbe bead, then Jobn went up
stairs, when be came down again he said:
"I have got all I want." Wben we came
out, we went up through the cedars, be
gave me ten dollars iu money. I've got
it now. Jobn showed me a pin and watch
outsldo the door as we come out. He
did'nt tell me how much mo.iey be got or
what be was going to do witb tbe watch
nnd pin. I went out towards tbe barn,
orossed the bridge nearest tbe school bouse
and went borne. Tms was about 4:46.
I bare only seen my brother once since tbe
murder. My wife wag sitting at the table
eating supper wben I came in alio asked me
wbere 1 bad been, I told her down the
There are no new developments in tbe
Towosend case. DeteoMves say tbey have
no doubt they will fasten the crime upon
the perpetrators of tbe Maybee outrage.
The whole expense of this thing bas been
borne by Mr. Corbiu. He says "cost
what it may, acd without regard to tbe
turn it takes, I am determined tbat no
murder or otber serious crime be com
mltted In Long Island, witbout the crimi
nal being bunted down and punished."
St. Louis, Jdo. 18. Tbe report having
gained currency that a prominent official
of the Pullman Palace Car Company had
become financially involved, tbe following
speolal from New York to tbo Chicago
Times Is given In rebutatlon. It says: A
statement waa telegraphed from Chicago
taat reporta were current In that city affect
ing tbe solvency of George M. Pullman (
the President of tbe Pullman Palace Car
Company. Mr. Pullman was asked at tbe
Windsor Hotel wbat truth there was in the
report. "I am very happy to say tbat
there Is none,1' said he. "I can see no
abject in circulating such reports except,
possibly, to alarm the stockholders of the
Pullman Company. Were it not to allay
any fear that might be caused by sucb
stories, I should pay no attention to them.
Tbe lmpretsion that I am a large stock op
erator is entirely wrong. I made Invest
ments in tbe Northern Pacitic and Wert
Shore Roads on my own account, witb tbe
View of furthering tbe iutereBts of the Pul-
man company. There bas been a shrink
age of values, of course, and all investors
have suffered in consequence,' but I have
faith in tbe future of botb those enter
prise. Tbe object of my present visit to ,
New York was to place my daughters iu
school and attend to some business ot the
Pullman company. " Mr, Pullman left for
Bosnia last nigbt.
