If Mrs. Duke's hulr-pln story bt true,
more Importance attaches to this theory

pears that a short time before tbe tragedy,

Mr. Burns made ber a couple out of knit

home-made pins would each have the tin

recognized. Wben Zora started to Lincoln

Robert Hunt testified lo Nutt'a weakness

of Duke for shooting Captain Nutt were

commonwealth closed the evident.
The d"feue are anxious lo give the case

Bkllkvillb. Jau. 19, 2:30 a. m. At
10 o'clock last nlgbt a fire broke out
in Ihe Western company's coal mine
in West Belleville. It spread rtpidly
through the underground corridors
of the mine, and soon tbe flames and
smoke wera pouring up out of the
mouth ol the mine as from tbe mouth of a
miniature volcano. Tbe flames lit up tbe
sky and tbe light made the streets of West.
Belleville as light as day. All people who
.were awake at tbe time tbe blaze first made
its appearance hastened to enjoy the spec
tacle. The flames were roaring and crack
ling underneath tbe ground and the heat
Tbe mine was drowned out by the caving
in of tbe bottom of a creek about six
months ao, and ever since thai time there
have been no men or animals employed in
tbe mine. Tbe fire department was culled
out wben the Are was first discovered, but
after a run of a good long mile the depart
ment found tbat it could do nothing
and the men and the machines went
back home. Tbe mine was visited by
fire about a year ago, and the fire
was not very great, though It worked a
dannge nf about ,$7,000. Tbe cause of the
fire is, of course unknowu, and is all 'the
more of a mystery from tbe fact that no one
had been in it for many days. In
tbe absence of anything ese to
blame for the underground conflagration it
Is attributed to an explosion of fire-damp.
The mine was owned by the Western Min
ing Company, the President of which is
Mr. Edward Newton. At the late hour no
idc-a of tbe damage could be ascertained.
It would be futile to endeavor to
estimate it at tbe preseot time. The
mine is connected with other mines
iu the vicinity, and the fire may spread to
Ibis valuable property. Alt Belleville is

spectacle on asm sll scale similar to that
enjoyed by the Pompelans centuries ago.

8r. Lot-is, Jan. Ii). A morning uews
liapor coot tine I a lengthy Interview with
Col. llutlt r, statesman, In which tbat
patriot gave what be designated as the In
S'de history of the Broadhead campaign.
Mr. Roller uwial!y related tnal on the
morning of the election Col. Br itdhead
delivered til til iu $'200 in Ihe preseuoe of
Fr.ink Peebles, and thai bit In turn delivered
Hie money to a person name, I Uawley. Mr.
llnwley then lescfl 's tbat be went down to
the Leve, obtained the me of several
wagons, carried illegal voters to the polls
and voted between !1J0 and 3'W men under
imiii-s not known to the Judges. Liter In the
day, Kawley stys he reported to Butler that
bis r-"SI had disappeared, wbereuuo i But
ler sav he com rliut"d on his own ac
count, ami the tide w turned. Butler
now d"c.lars that h thinks Dr. McLean
was rlslr full el'ie'ed. and that when he
once threatened to give these facts awar
Frank Kyaii begged hira "for God's sake
not to do it. ''
In order to complete the history of that
famous cimnal'.'o, "a reporter called
upon Mr. F. K. Ryan for a statement. Mr.
Rvun had not read tbe Interview, hut he
purchased a paper and sat down to per
use the statement nf Mr. Butler. His
leading was interpolated with smiles
ami Ion I laujbter and sarctstic re
marks. What do vou tbiuk of it," said Ihe re
porter, when the. leadinz ceased.
'Buff," said M-. R-an, 'all bluff.
The whole thing, so far as I know, is
a,i-ed from the imaginative brain of Mr.
Butler. Toere is no such man as Hawley,
and you uuy Just say that Butler's Hawley
( a myth."
"But wtiat did Butler say to you on
"Atoueofour meetings there one day,
Butler blustered up to me, with an air of
if-yoiis 1 m't-let-up-on-tha- bnys-I'll-blow
somcining, and said, 'Ryan, if you fellers
don't stop this foolishness I'll give tbe
liioadliead election dead away.' I said:
'Mr. Butler, I snould very much dislike to
have you make statements that can only
reaot upon yourself. You are aware tbat

Friends ot Mr. Broadnead were made to
believe tbat Butler bad sold him out to Mo

the flame. But I kuew tbat Mr. Butler
was simply keeping h s hands off, because
he bated Uarngau, an t was unwilling to
move hand or foot lest II irrigan might ob
tain soniri benefit. Butler ne.tU.er aided
Broadhead or .HcLean but he beat Hani

ley, give Broadhead 'DO or 3K) votes in the
'The tdfleial returns show that Mr.
Bnisdh- ad's greatest losses were in the
First and S'conJ wards. At the election of
181, Thomas Allen rec -ived 1,521 votes in
the First ward, and Hancock received
1.4-"i3. In tbe Second ward Allen recoived
1,100 votes and Ha'icock 1,096. At tbe
election of $S2. Mr. Broadhead received in
the First ward only 737 votes, a dead
loss of 781 votes from the Allen
veto, an i 716 less than Hancock's
vote. X w, If M . Butler and bis mythical
friend Hawley contributed between 200 and
and 3" voter to Mr. Broa dliead that did
not beloug to tb:t ward, Iu Heaven's name
what bee une of all the legitimate Demo
cratic, votes that showed up in the First
ward at H incoek's election. It's too ibin,
you know. The facts are, as 1 state, tba'
Broadhead suffered a direct loss of over 700
votes in the First ward alone, Jpartially
through the Ind'fference of Butler, who was
willing to t-e the entire ticket sw.tmpod in
order to defeat. Major Harrigan. Butler's
own testimony that b only received $20
from Broadhead is sufficient evidence 1 1. at

Col. Kiag was for a brief period business
manager of tbe St. Joseph Gazette, when
Maj. John N. Edwards became editor-In- !
chief, btit resigned bis position because he
said tbe "James Boy Element" was toi
conspicuous a feature of tbe paper, j He
"What strength has tbe James Boy ele

"None at all. Our section reflect tbe
characteristics of Iowa, Nebraska and
Kansas, of which 'we are almost a part.
My newspaper bas bad a splendid op

Major Edwards, is one of the best fellows

simply a dismay failure."
"Perhaps you won't think so when the

"Won't I! Well, I tell you the Demo

If St. Louis wants to start the boom it will

I tell you he is going to bave great difficulty
in securing a re-election. Vest baa an
idea that Missouri Is dreadfully short Of
material, aud that he Is tbe last remaining
hope. Ills action in tbe Pendleton matter
whs only a little indication of tbe man's
character. Tbe people of this State are
ready to rise up against the presumption of
