Cahokia's Mystery at Last Revealed
Arrest and Full Confession of One
of the Murderers.
St. Loris, Mo., March 8. Ellis Kep
tovl, the peddler last seen In company
with the notion peddler who was mur
dered at Cahokia in such a ghastly man
ner, returned to East St. Louis this morn
ing, and gave the name of the murdered
man as Lavignc, a Russian Jew. Koptovl
resides at No. til 7 North Seventh street,
this city, and his story is that he started
with Lavlgne from St. Louis ou Tuesday,
the 2ith ult., Lavlgne carrying a stock of
oil cloth bibs and aprons, and Itcptovl a
hunch of tinware. They crossed the big
bridge to East St. Louis, on their way to
Cahokia, where they parted company In
the afternoon, agreeing to meet that eve
ning to pass the night at a boarding
house kept by a white woman.
KEPTOVI PASSED THE NlfiHT .
there, but Lavlgne did not come In. Tills
was the last time Reptovi saw Lavlgne.
When asked this morning as to whether
Lavlgne was In the habit of drinking, he
said no, and seemed to be surprised at
the question, but said sometimes he
would drink a glass of beer, but no
whisky. Keptovl describes Lavigno as
being about forty-live years of nu'e, five
nnd a half feet high, of stout build, light
hair and goatee, and wore a No. 7
boot, which corresponds with those
found cut in Brown's house, at Cahokia.
After Wm, Brown, his wife and sister-ln-law,"Katic
Joe," had been placed in the
East St. Louis jail, yesterday, the belief
in the guilt of the negroes became so gen
eral that Sheriff Kopicquet decided to re
move them to Belleville for safety.
Bailiff James escorted Brown nnd worked
so successfully on his fears by telling him
that lynchers were awaiting him that the
prisoner hadglven away half the horrors
of the crime before the Belay Depot was
reached. The further Information cajol
ed out of him on the cars guided the olli
cers in their search. After locking ti e
prisoners up the officers started for
Brown's story was that the victim was
n notion peddler and that a white man
called Doc, George or Jack, a resident of
Cahokia,. and a notoriously bad negro
named Tom Jones assisted him in the
murder. At 10:30 p. in. on February 20,
theso two men brought a drunken peddler
to Brown's hut, where he was alone, his
wife and sister-in-law being in St. Louis,
(me of the Cahokia men carried the ped
dler's pack and Brown was ordered to
produce whisky. The "Doctor" and
Jones pretended to get drunk and soon
had the peddler helpless. The Doctor
then told Brown that the man was lousy
with wealth and must be llxed. Brown
claims that he refused to assist, but was
told that the man was to be killed and he
would be a party to the crime anyhow,
lie then produced an ax. With this the
Doctor knocked the victim all of a hoop
AS UK STRUGGLED
they held him and cut his throat. They
carried him into the sleeping-room and
decided to cut him up so that if the re
mains were found it would be supposed to
be the work of medical students. The
head was first cut off and thrown inlo the
etove after being cut Into convenient
pieces. The feet and hands were next
thrown Into the lire and were followed by
the arms. At this time, midnight,
Brown's wifo returned and it was
lound that the remains could not
he disposed of by lire before morn
ing, lie and his wife therefore stuffed
the trunk and some of the limbs into a
Back, took it to the little copse near the
creek and burled It. They crossed the
creek backwards to disguise their tracks.
The "Doctor'1 took all the portable plun
der, promising to divide it when conven
ient. There Is no doubt that the victim
was a notion peddler, a foreigner, who
breakfasted on the day of the murder at
the house of a Mrs. Arnott, at Prairie du
Point, a mile from Cahokia. She describes
him as forty years old, five feet six inches
tall, of dark complexion, and weighing
about 1 GO pounds.
Search at the house revealed the bloody
ax with which the deed was committed.
It was still bloody. The body had been
chopped up between the bed and the wall,
which was bespattered with blood to the
ceiling. The ashes in the stove contained
portions of a charred human head and a
bones and blood, the size of a man's fist.
In other ashes were found a piece of
charred skull with brain matter adhering,
a piece of a large bone calcined, a foot
bone, a hand bone and flesh, which clear
ly proved how the missing extremities
had been disposed of. Search was
immediately made for the "Doctor"
and Jones, but they had taken the hint
of Brown's arrest and disappeared from
Deputy Sheriff Anthony and Al. Daw
son, the jailer, started for Cahokia
about noon to-day 'to make another
hunt for them.

Supreme Court Decision that Makes
Kansas Guzzlers Sick.
Lkavenwokth, Kvs., March 8. There
is consternation in Leavenworth, the
Anti-Prohibition stronghold of the State,
caused by the decision of the State
Supreme Court In the test case against
County Attorney Foster, of Saline County,
to oust him from olllee for refusing to en
force the Prohibitory law. This decision
will result in proceedings to oust County
Attorneys in several counties, and is the
most formidable movement yet made for
the enforcement of the Prohibition law.
Thu Prohibitionists are jubilant, an I the
large brewery, vineyard and liipior Inter
ests are correspondingly depressed.

Active Trading and a Strong- Market-
Broken Freight Rates.
Chicago, Ii.i.., March 8. Trading ac
tivity on 'Change has been greater this
forenoon than has been witnessed here
for a mouth past. Buying orders came
in in profusion and values generally
have been very strong and tending
upward. Wheat, which sold down to
90" for May on Thursday, has steadily
risen from that figure until it reached
U7 1-2 to-day. July wheat went to 1.00-1-4,
and other options ro-e li-4 and 7-8
over the closing on 'Change yesterday.
Corn was especially strong at the opening,
May selling up to OH I'.-l, but eased off
somewhat and was quoted at 50 J'.-S at
11 o'clock. Oats advanced '.',- and 1-2,
and pork advanced 12 1-2; lard advanced
5. The strength shown by the markets is
partially ascribed to the apparently well
founded rumors that freights East bound
have finally broken to a basis of fifteen
cents to New York.

Annual Address of the President, Mrs.
II. II. Candee.
To tho Members of the Vornw' Club aad Library
Dear Fbiends: Another ye'ir in our
histoiy hai been marked upon the dial
plate of time, a quiet, pro-perous year and
fraught with bo'h pleasur and profit, not
unmixed with suluess for the loss of one
of our ablest and m8t valued members.
With grateful recollections of her deep
inteiest in the mission of our Assjciation
and a ten ler regird for her virtues as a
friend and sister, we have dropped from oui
roll the uitue of Mary J. Adatu3. In shin
ing letters it is written, we trust, among
the hosts ot thu redeemed, whoso life work
is accomplished, and who have entered
with rest. To augment our numbers we
have welcomed several new and valued
members, who, we hope, will fiud the sumo
help and inspiration from their connection
with our Association, that we have done 111
the nine-years of its existence. And we
trust that they will join us, and help to
widen the field of usufulneia of the little
band that has been a power for good iu our
community. Very iuany kind and gratify
ing words of commendation have bewn
spuken of the Woman's Club the past year,
both at home and abroad, and our work has
come to be generally recognized as one of
deserving merit. We can congratulate our
selves rightfully upon this, and from it
take frjsh courage lor ur work in the
future. The most notable event of the year
has b.en the commencement aud rapidly
approaching completion of the SitlWd
Memorial Library Building, in which we
have so strong an interest and with which
wa are so closely identified. Through tlis
munificence of one of our own members
tho beiutiful and commodious structure
will be given to the City of Cairo and the
Freo Public Library aud R-sading Room,
founded by tho exertions of tho Wom in's
Ciub and Library Association, be affirded
a permanent home. Through her gener
osity also, our Association will be provi led
in that building with an elegant Club
Kcom, which properly fitted up with pic
tures, stationary and art objects, will, we
hope, in connection with the Museum
Library JIall, add other rooms of the build
ing, come to bo the centre of literary and
artibtic culture in Cairo. Thus will one of
our earliest and grandest dreams be reali
zed. The work of the Association during
the past year, in connection with the Free
Public Library, has been very satisfactory.
Through the courtesy of the Mayor and
Council our Association has beea largely
represented in the Board of Directors and a
most harmonious aud pleasant feeling has
existed among the members of the Board,
the only thing occurring during the year
to mar our pleasure being tho resignation
of the Rev. Mr. Benj. Y. George, whose
removal from the city has deprived us of
a valuible member of the Board, and
Library Committee, and of one of the warm,
est friends and encouragers of the Library
Association. The loss of Mrs. G jorge from
the Association and also of Mrs. C. C. E.
G isa from the Board of Trustees, the latter
being one of our oldest and most esteemed
members, will bo grcitly regretted by all.
We trust these good friends will find happi
ness and prosperity in their new hraes. In
a city situite 1 like our own, with a some
what shifting population compired with
that of other placig, it has been our fortune
to welcome in eur Association, many de
lightful and valued charades, with whom
we have been oblig 1 in the course of
events to sion part, to our mutual regret.
Some of these, in the past have
been our public irJiool teachers,
who have left ub for other posts of duty,
but whose letters of kind remembrance for
toeir connection with tho Woman's Club
often come to us, a3 well as those of others.
It is a pleasant feature ot our society that
tliero is such nn association as our own to
welcome strangers, and to make them at
homo with us, while they remain. Some
have refrained from joining u, becau-it of
their nhort stay in the city, but we hope
none will be deterred on that account, but
that all who have any interest in library or
art work and literary culture, j iiu ui, if
only for a time.
Tho work of the association in the past,
in behalf of tho library, need not bo refer
red to, at length the existence of our well
selected little library, nnd its liberal pat
ronage by tho public will speak for itself.
During tho pst year an average of 870
books a month have been drawn from the
library, the wholo number being 10,441.
After the completion of the library build
ing, when tho library will bo opened every
day, and tho beautiful and convenient read
ing room placed at the disposal of the pub
lic, the valuo of our work will ba yroatly
enhanced. Now, that ourCrty Fathers have
wisely and liberally assumed tho' responsi
bilities of the library work, tho Woman's
Club has found . itself free to take other
sories of work equally beneficial to society.
A new venture, the art classes now in
operation, has met with gratifying Biicces".
A pleasant and convenient Btudio in charge
of a competent and popular artist of Chica
go is laying tho foundation of art work,
according to tho best academic methods,
which will aid greatly in cultivating the
artistic taste of our people. We are for
tunate iu having instructors in. other de
partments from among our own member
ship, and frequent letters of inquiry as t
our plans nnd methods are being received
from other cities that are waking up to the
alvantages of such work as our association
has inaugurated. This important work we
hav accomplished the past year in the
future new avenues of usefulness will be
opened to us. Within the pa-t several
weeks, we have had several offers froru
prominent literary people in the West to
come to us tor lectures upon various sub
jects. When the library hall is completed
wk shall be able to avail ourselves of such
opportunities for culture, as well as to ex
tend invitations to man) who will lo glad
to be entert tiund in our beautiful library
building. The faithful friend, m whose
honor devoted lovo erects this memorial",
could not ask for more fitting remem
brance than that the people he lived
amoug and loved fehould be granted these
privileges of culture and enjoyment.
The liuancial condition ef the association,
according to tho treasurer's report, is ex
cellent, as we now have tho sum of f 114 in
our treasury, and but few expenses, which
are more than met by our aunuil fees and
dues. But better than tilver and gold in
our purse, do we rejoice in the cordial and
harmonious feeling exiting amoug our
members, and the spirit of thankfulness we
have for our past prosperity, and of earnest
intention to accomplish all possible good
for the future, an 1 to faithfully advance
the standard of usefulness of the Cairj
Woman's Club and Library Association.
Amid the pcrplexiug and wearying de
tails of every day routine, the noisy, fretful
bustle of commonplace matters, it is well
sometimes to call a halt to sip away from
care3 for a little season; to meet in council
and discuss those things that will tend to
refine and elevate our lives.
To be good citizens, we are tul 1, educa
tion is necessary hence the vast net-work
of public schools the bulwarks of the
nation a3 they aro aptly called, that spread
over the land. To bo goo 1 mothers and
wise conservators of society, something
besides faithfulness at home and a judici
ous ordering of domestic affairs has been
found advantageous to women. The great
masters of literature, art and science stand
waiting to give their countless treasures to
the seeker. Hand in hand with religion,
they shed their benign influence upon so
ciety, and those best versed in their magic
loro sought for in reverence and with pati
ence, find their lives most full and rich.
If the future of a nation is in tbe bauds of
the mothers of our ceming generations, let
those mothers be not only patient, vigilant
and earnest, but cu'tivatel, liberal and
