Last Night's Meetinjr.
There was no noisy demonstration, no
music, no blare of trnmpetp. no firincr of
cannon, no smell of kerosene in the air.
but there was a steady gathering of the
most respectable people in the city at the
opera hooso last night until every Beat and
every foot of standing room in tho main
part of the building was filled with eager
listeners to tho telling speeches delivered
by flon. Win. Ilartzell and lion. F. E. Al

es, unanswerable arguments, telline bits.

Mr. Albright spoke for a few minutes,
before ho took the train for DuQuoio,
where ho is booked for to-night in expla
nation or answor to an infamous falsehood
published yesterday in that most infamous
sheet, tho St. Louis Globe-Democrat. ThO
story as published Is so plausible that it
might deceivo anyoio not posted in matters
pertaining to tho army, and especially to
tho manner in which "reports" aro made
out In tho field, but no ono who has been
a soldier, whether he bo republican or dem
ocrat, will bo mis'ed by this statement as
published in the ,G.-D. that Mr. Albright
holds unlmpeachablo proof is a lie and
that his opponent, Captain Thomas, has al
ready acknowledged TO Bfl A LIE. tho
charge that Mr. Albright wis a deserter.
The writer Berved four years in tho army;
was with General Iluel, in Tonnosseo; with
ftmoncrantz at Stone rivor; with Thomas
at Chickamauga; with the starring army in
Chattanooga; under Grunt at Mission Ridge
and with Sherman before Atlanta, and
knows of what ho writes; knows how easily
a true man, a good soldier could go on tin
rolls as a deserter and how difficult it was
to got those rolls corrected. Ono case in
particular, so nearly parallel to that of Mr.
Albright, we.will mention here: A young
Air. jonnw. samlyriilgp. who resides a
few miles south of Smithville, Mo., on the
Mississippi, related last night t a Bulls
tin reporter the fac's with reference to
series of mysterious robberies w hich have
been iu vogue in that locality for several
mouths past and which baffled the best de
tective talent to be bad in Memphis and St
Louis, and the manner in which the
scoundrels were finally brought to bay and
Llouses were entered in broad daylight,
drawers, trunks, chests, everything over
hauled and ransacked and articles of value
carried away. The strangest part of the
whole affair is that not a person was ever
seen by anyone engaged in the "looting,''
and no one was suspected.
A female detective from Ktlamszoo,
Mich., Mrs. Jerry Mcpherson, well known
to the authorities of the larger cities, of
Michigan, was finally induced to take the
matter in hand, having been solicited to do
so by William B. McPhcrson, her brother-
in-law, who was one of the main sufferers
from the robbers, to ferret out the mystery.
She arrived there, on Monday last and
worked to such advantage that a minister
named William James vbt reported to the
authorities as being probably implicated
and Mrs. McPherson swore out a warrant
for bis arrest. Ilia incarceration created
the wildest excitement throughout the
country and when it was known that be
had confessed everything, the excitement
was almost paralyzing. Among others im
plicated aro John Harris, a lawyer, Wil
liam Craighead, assistant postmaster, Wil
liam C. Musser, druggist, and James
Preacher James became at once very
penitent, and located a great deal ot tho
property in an old abandoned well, some
thirty feet deep, about a mile from the
town, where it at ono time supplied the
wants of the inhabitants of a log house.
long since destroyed.
Officer Owcn, James Wilder and Depu
ty Sheriff Milan, visited the well in compa
ny with James, who procured a ladder
from a dense undergrowth near, together
with a dark lantern, and descended, follow-
ed by tho pnrty. A strange sight greeted
the eyes. At the bottom, nearly thirty
feet, excavations had been made on two
sides, describing two large rooms, eight
feet high by about fifteen souare. well
braced with long scantling. From thoccn
tor piece was suspended a coa! oil light
which tho prisoner ignited, throwing a
bright glare on the strange scene.
Tho room wts floored, contained com
mon matting, and furnished with beds.
bedding, chaits, table, sideboard- In fact
everything for comfortable living. Strewn
about were evidences of robberv. Pack-
ages of dry goods, boxes of provisions,
boots and shoes, hats and caps, with a
plentiful supply of coffee, sugar, etc., in
original pnekngos. In the sideboard was
found watchs, and various articles of Jew
elry, most of which has been identified.
Somo of tho packages of groceries contain
ed partially obliterated marks of St. Louis,
Cincinnati and New Orleans houses. Two
wagon loads of stolon property wal finally
fished out of tho well after great exertion.
The excitement Is intense, although no
indication of violence is manifested. The
property recovered is valued at two thous
and dollars. Those arrested have all borne
