Henry Ward Beeeher.
St. Loris, Mo., April 9. Rev. Henry
Ward Beeeher arrived at the Southern
this morning, accompanied by his agent,
Major Pond. Mr. Beeeher refutes the
idea that this was his last lecture tour,
saying that he would never desist until
compelled by nature to do so. He was In
Cincinnati the day after the riots
ended, and he considered the up
rising as an accidental outburst of the
popular feeding against a lax system of
law. Civilization, he said, has leavened
tbe humblest classes, and as a result
they resolve to deal with matters of
whose importance they know but little.
In politics Mr. Beeeher is a Republican,
but he advocates free trade, claiiniug
that it is his mission to bring his party to
its cause. He hopes to make It the issue
at a future election. Mr. Beeeher laugh
ingly remarked that he was now an Irish
man, having just been elected a member
of the New lork triendly Sons oi St.
Patrick. Mr. Beeeher lectures to-night
in Mercantile Hall on "Evolution and

probably be abandoned. An excellent

Philadelphia, Pa., April 9. Frederick
Douglass, after his lecture on John Brown
In the Academy of Music last night, said
to a Philadelphia Times reporter:
"I favor the coining together of colored
men in council aud approve of the Pitts
burgh conference to be held on tho 29th
Inst. I don't know what will be done
there, but nothing, I hope, which will
give comfort to tho Democratic party.
For my part I will come out of the con
ference as I shall go into it a Republi
can. I shall go simply as a delegate, not
as a leader. It was different at the St.
Louis Convention a year ago. I was the
chairman of that convention, and was
looked upon as a leader In It."
In speaking of the prospective Repub
lican candidates for the Presidency, Mr.
Douglass said: "John A. Logan is tho
first choice of the colored people. They
favor him because he has backbone, lie
Is a brave man and does not fear to do
right even though he is surrounded by
the most overwhelming opposition. He
supported Pinchback in his tight foraseat
In the United States Senate. He opposed
Fitz John Porter with the courage of a
lion. In every campaign he has held up a
fresh bloody shirt to the discomllture of
the Democratic party. Who do I think
w ill be the choice of the Democratic party
for the Presidency? I have no doubt that
Samuel J. Tilden will be their candidate.
Vou see, there Is a sense of poetic justice
pervading the Democratic party, w hich, I
believe, will Impel It to give him .the
nomination a second time."
A SKVKKE SCHOCK.
Beginning of the Trial of Anna Schock
Chicago, III., April 9. The trial of
Anna Schock, matron of the Industrial
Home for Women, lately located at La
Grange, was begun before Judge William
son and a jury. The indictment against
her, w hich contains eight counts, charges
that she misued and abused the children
placed under her care. The home was
supposed to be a charitable Institution,
and many kind-hearted people, lu Chicago
and elsewhere, contributed to its sup
port, thinking that they were thereby
helping to establish a place where home
less and orphan chlldreu could be provid
ed for and taken care of.
The Humane Society is conducting the
prosecution, and two of the officers of
that society were the only witnesses ex
amined the first day. Their testimony
was substantially the same. They swore
that when they entered the House at La
Grange which was used by Mrs. Schock as
a home, they found eighteen children con
gregated in the basement. This base
ment was an unfurnished room, part of it
used as a cow stable, with no suitable
means of warming it. Broken windows
allowed the snow to form in heaps upon
the floor, and near the stove which
failed to give forth enough heat to in fit
the snow in its near neighborhood where
crowded the shivering, starving children,
ranging iu ag from two to twelve years.
They were Insufficiently clad, In some
Instances being almost naked, and the only
food they had had for weeks was a poor
quality of mush that made them sick.
Their "clothing was filthy and their bodies
infested with vermin. L'pstairs, the offi
cers testified, there were acoupleof well
furnished and comfortable rooms, but
they were occupied by Mrs. Schock. All
the remainder of the bed-rooms were
crowded with beds, four and five being
placed In one room, and these beds were
inexpressibly filthy. The bed-clothing
was insufficient to protect the sleepers
except in a warm room, and In these tnere
were no fires, and the broken windows,
patched up in places with rags stuffed in
to the spaces vacant of glass, allowed the
wind and weather to enter at pleasure.
The taking of testimony for the State will
Mrs. Shock pays close attention to the
trial. She is a fair-faced, slender woman,
about thirty-eight years old, and her face
gives no Indication of the excesses that
are charged to her. She was dressed in
a blue suit, Well cut anil becoming. She
took notes of all tho testimony In a note
book that was never absent from her
hand. The extreme penalty for the crime
wit h w hich she is charged is three years
in the Penitentiary.

Erik, Pa., April!. The alleged "Public
be damned" statement of Win. H. Van
derbilt was to-day Incorporated Into s
legal Issue between the Lake Shore Rail
way Company and Mrs. Dr. Clark, of this
city, who last week won a suit against
the company. The defendant this morn
ing moved for a new trial on the ground
that the plaintiff's counsel in summing up
their case to the jury called their atten
tion to the largest stockholder, and said
that this man had said in reference to the
public duties of the Lake Shore, "Tho
public be damned!" The defendant
claims this statement to be false and cal
culated to prejudice the jury. The case
will be argued next week.
