A RUNAWAY GIRL.
She Left Her Home fo Avoid Ill-Treatment,
But Relumed Under Promise of Police
Last evening a Bohemian who speaks
painfully bad English complained at police
headquarters that his 13-year old daughter
had left her home against the will of her
parents. He said his name was Joe Mat
zel and tho girl's name was Mary. He
had found her in the home of a plasterer
named Coot, on Fifth street and Eighth
avenue north, who would not allow the
father to take her home. Offioer Howard
was detailed by Capt. West to get the girl,
Sid to him she explained that she
hid run away from her home to avoid
t io err el treatment she sustained at the
hands of her mother. She said the family
who had harbored her were kind, and that
her mother had compelled her to occupy a
room with men. She seemed intelligent
and desirous or living a life of rectitude;

Since the announcement that Manager
Frank Conkiin had met with suooess in
securing Col. Mapleson's Her Majesty's
Opera company for a brief round of grand
operas, our citizens have manifested an
unusual intereet in the same. Yet there is
nothing surprising in the fact, for Minne
apolis has never enjoyed the rare treat of
listening to such a Rifted artist as Mme.
Gereter, supported by a galoxy of talent
embodied in a company which includes
165 people. The enormity of the cost iu
securing this attract.en par excellence has
compelled the management to piaoe tue
seats at a muoh higher rate than our peo
ple have ever paid, but it is unlikely that
there will be any complaint thereat. The
excursion trains from St. Paul and Still
water will accommodate the people of
those two cities who wish to avail them
selves of the rare operatio fea3t. One gen
tleman was heard to remark yesterday that
he should invest in a large block of seats
as a speculation, but the management will
disapprove and prevent the people from

A HOT SPBINGS TRAGEDY.
Hot Springs, Ark., Feb. 9.-—A terrible
tragedy was enacted on our main street
this morning about 11 o'clock. Three,
brothers, Frank, Jack and William Flynn,
were proceeding home in a hack, when a
party of seven men, armed with shot guns
and Winchesters, stepped out from the
door of a saloon and opened fire. The
Flynns were armed, but the attack was
fatally unexpected. Jack Flynn was shot
through the forehad by a ball from a
Winchester, and died in a few minutes.
William Flynn was shot through
the breast with a Winchester,
probably fatally. Frank Flynn received a
shot through the hand, inflicting a slight
woand, and Frank Hall, driver of the
hack, was shot through the baok of the
neck, and died an hour afterward. Robt.
Hargreave, a bystander, wss Bhot through
the breast,and Will probably die. J. H.
Craig, a prominent lumberman, received
a oharge of buckshot through the back.
His condition is considered precarious.
The difficulty originated some weeks ago,
on account of Frank Flynn
endeavoring to prevont Doran
from operating a gambling house.
It culminated in Doran making a ooward
ly attempt to assassinate, failing in which
he fled the oity, but returned secretly a
lew nights ago. Flynn was unaware of
his presence in the city till tho fatal vol
ey was opened on him. Intense excite
ment prevails, and there are strong threats
of mobbing the prisoners. The seven were
arrested and are now in jail, S. A. Doran,
the two Piutl brothers, Howell,
and three others. The oitizens
are loud in condemnation of the murder
er's cowardly aot. Judge Wood has been
telegraphed to by leading citizens, re
questing him to adjourn oourt at Malvern,
and return here and hold a general session
to try the murderers. If he consent the
law will probably be allowed to take its
course. If he does not, the citizens boldly

Hot Springs, Ark., Feb. 9.—Some two years
ago, Frank Flynn, James Lane, Chas. Watson
and Louis Goodman were engaged as partners
in a gambling house. Dissentions arose, and
the firm dissolved. Lane continued the busi
ness, while Flynn and Goodman opened as a
rival house. Lane, jealous of its growing pop
ularity, began to circulate rumors affecting its
character. Ilynn remonstrated with him, and
threatened to break him up unless he ceased.
Lane, however, continued to circulate his re- "
ports until Flynn and Goodman closed their
house. Flynn then took steps to close Lane's
house, and succeeded so well as to financially
ruin him. Lane left tho city
and went to New York, still retain big his in
terests here. About six months ago he re
turned, and openly boasted that he would soei.
have a man here who wonld open his house or
would have Flynn's blood. It was soon dis
covered that this man was one S. Alex. Doran, a
mtn whose record has been one of blood and
ciimes in Tennessee, in TexRs and elsewhere.
He has murdered men in cold blood and through
pure wantonness, a human hyena who fed upon
gore. He was never so happy as when imn
ing his hands in tho blood of his fellow man.
Doran arrived here some three months ago,
penniless. It was known to Flynn that
he was desperate. Doran, with two others
at once opened a gambling house. Flynn,
through legal means endeavored to suppress it.
A few days afterward Doran met Flynn, aim
without a word, drew a pistol and began to
slioot. Flynn's right arm was crippled, and he
retreated to a neighboring store. Drawing his
pistol he advanced on Doran, who in turn re
treated. Officers interfered, and both part it*
were arrested. Subsequently Flyrm wasplaciii
under bonds of J 5,000. Doraa *left the city,
and returned surreptitiously on Tuesday,sccom
panied by two or three companions. Their
presence has been kept concealed, and Flynn
was unaware of his presence until a fatal volley
poured in. As soon as the hack was fired into
Frank and William Flynn jumpod from the ve
hicle and opensd liro on thtir assailants, but
without effect. The names of the prisoners
now confined in jail are S. A, Doran, David and
Robert Pruitt, Harry Lanning, Ed. Howell, J.
Lucius and John Allison. Jdall is not dead as
at first reported, though he cannot live, and
Wm. Flynn's oondition is critical as well Har
grove's. Craig's wounds are not considered
Stbaouse, N. Y., Feb. 9.—Clarence F.
Teear, alias Edward Francis,!who escaped
from Auburn prison in February, last
year, after robbing the prison safe, was

at several times by the officers, and the
fire was returned by Teear. Nobody was
hit. He will be sent to Auburn Monday

THE DEFAULTING MOOBHEAD TBEASUBEB.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Moorhead, Feb. 9. —The bondsmen of Peter
C'zizek, defaulting treasurer of Moorhead, have
nearly all agreed to apportion the amount of the
defalcation pro rata and pay up, and it is be
lieved this will be done. Czizek will probably
remain in jail till the April term of court.
THE HOKEIELE MUfiDER.
Fuankfobt, Ky., Feb. 9.—All the evidence
obtainable shows clearly that the murderer of
John Peannington and wife is a tramp hired by
PeanniBgton the day tho crime was committed.
The body of the murdered man was found lying
in the barn, where he had been at work, With
two bullet holes in his head, while his brave
wife, who had evidently gone to his rescue aftar
hearing the fatal 6hote, was lying in a mangled
heap, some thirty yards away from
her husband in a dilapidated cowshed. Tho
ghou! shot her in the face, but that not killing
her, he sifzed a spade and beat her brains out,
and then dragged her to tho shed, where she
was found with her clothing torn to shreds and
spattered with her own brains and blood. The
excitement is growing more and intense. Over
5U0 men are now at 1 he scene of the tragedy,
and others are scouring the country in search of
assassin. Few threats are made, but it is cer
tain that if the murderer is captur ed Judge
Lynch will officiate.
NOTED burglar caught.
Wheeling, W. Va.,Feb. 9.—At midnight to
night Eggy Conery, brother of Curly Jack, the
noted cracksman, was caught by two special
officers trying to enter a store in the flooded dis
trict. On the way to jail he ran, and the offi
cers fired several shots, finally recapturing him
and lodging him in jail. The few people out
talk of lynching him, but it will not bs done.
A STRAW BONDSMAN.
iSpecial Telegram to the Globe. 1
New York, Feb. 9.—Joseph Kennell, alias
Kuhn, a well known strawbondsman of this city,
was arrested to-day and committed in default of
$10,000 bail. His capture is looked
upon as one of great importance,
for during the last two years he has furnished
w irthless bonds in something like fifty cases,
and a number of criminals have escaped trial
by securing their release on bail given by him.
By frequently changing his name and location
of property offered as security snd by devising
an ingenious scheme to furnish snitable proofs
of his identity as owner of property, he has
been accepted as bondsman by nearly every
police justice vn the btjjcii.

Merchants at 10 a. m. yesterday, where
Major Hamilton wa3 called to the chair,
and where after some discussion F. L.

which on motion were referred back toj a

under the system, resulting either from the in
competency of the agenta, or the general ruios

Pillsbury 4 Hurlburt have most grossly mis
managed their olevator system in the valley of
the Red river of the north, and caused many
thousands of dollars loss to the producers, and,
Whebeas, We have investigated the system of
elevators under Mr. Sawyer's management at
Duluth, and to this committee it appears to have
the remedy. We seek protection of the farmer
from unjust dealing of agents—the agent is not
under bond to make grades and weights good
at the destination; he does not pay his own re
ceipts; ho must send duplicates of each load of
wheat received daily to his principal, and other
features which satisfies this delegation of the
fairness and honesty this system extends to the
Whebeas, It is almost the universal custom
of railroads to control elevators on their line if
not actually own them, be it

Third, That it ia the earnest desire of this
committee that the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba Railway company does once take
upon itself the same supervision of its elevator

railway, viz: exact that elevator companies shall
each day report to general offices the price they
are paying at each elevator and price of wheat
the same day at markets readied by this time,
and to exact that the prices shall be a difference
of not more than five cents less (exclusi/eof
freight charge) than the markets so patronized,
and as a check have the local railroad freight

It was then voted that the following
resolutions adopted by the Grand Fork's
convention, be presented to Mr. Manvel at
once by a committee consisting of James
Langton, of Pembina; E. O. Faukner, of
Walsh, and W. N. Roach, of Grand ForkB,
go that he might lay them before President
Hill immediately on his return from the
ea9t to-day, bo as to, if possible, arrive at
some understanding in the premises at a
meeting of the oommittee with Messrs.
Hill and Manvel, wbioh was arranged for
2 p. m. on Monday. The resolutions are
First. To endeavor to secure the privilege of
shipping grain to Milwaukee or Chicago with
out breaking bulk.
Second. Allowing responsible parties to erect
elevators along their line of railroad, of not lass
than fifteen thousand (15,000) bushels ca
Third. Endeavor, if possible, to .secure re
duction of the present rates of traffic, and to

themselves to tbera.
Also, that if this committee can make such
arrangements with said company by which our

from the valley can be delivered to the Milwau
kee or Chicago markets without the necessity
of breaking bulk thereby causing a mixture of
grades at St. r/aul or Minneapolis.
In quite an animated discussion in re
gard to the committee's staying over to if
posiible secure an answer, yes or no, to
.heir demands and a3 to how soon the re
quired changes would be made, the mem
oere made some yery kindly allusions to
Mr. Manvel, whom they asserted was a
friend to the agrioultnral interests of the
Red River valley. It was said that
if the matter could be decided by him
it would be satisfactorily settled and with
out delay. But they knew that Mr. Man
vel was handicapped. That he was snbor
dinate to a higher power, which was Pres
ident Hill, who was the big bull in the
field to be placated and who would give
che positive answer when it was given.
The deoision was finally reached that the
committee would stay over until Monday,
hold another meeting at the Merchants at
'■• a. m., and meet the railroad authorities
for their answer to the resolutions at the
Manitoba office at 2 p. m.
Mr. Faulkner, ohairman of a oommittee
for that purpose, reported that he had vis
ited the freight agents of ail the railroads
but the St. Louis that morning and ob
tained their tariff sheetB for carrying grain
from competitive points in Northern
Minnesota and Dakota and laying it down
in the central markets. He had been used
with great courtesy by the several freight
agents, and being an old railroad auditor,
it was voted that he should tabulate the
valuable information gained and present
it to the oommittee of the whole Monday

afternoon and visited Pillsbury A mill un

of the rescue of little Ernest Amilan
from the Indians was a romance in itself,
The following synopsis only gives a faint
outline of the leoture, whioh should have
been heard by all lovers of adventure and
Colonel Ilges prefaced his leoture with
the remark that the subjeot upon whioh he
was about to speak, was probably not a
new one to most of his auditors, and that if
he himself failed to fulfil the requirements
of a publio lecturer, he had hopes that
during the course of the evening he would
say something new and interesting, whioh
might in some degree compensate his
kind hearers for their presence.
He then took his subject in hand and
for one honr and a half gave the audience
a word picture of his experience among
The introdnotion was the jenrney from
Herts Island, New York harbor, in 1865,
the crossing of the Isthmus of Panama,
with all its troubles in transporting a large
regiment, mostly consisting of bounty
jumpers, thieves and other outlaws, and
their final arrival at San Francisco. He
gave some humorous descriptions of the
short stay at the Presidio barracks, and
explained to the audienoe the position and
duties of an officer's servant, who is called
"striker," or more commonly "dog robber."
After that came the maroh to his post,
Fort Grant, passing Fort Yuma, where the
the rmometer is 127 degrees below zero,
and whence the bad soldier who
dies there, takes with him his
blaoketg, for feat of freezing ia the in-
fernal regions. The description of the
many dirt mouatB (graves) along the road,
after the column entered the territory of
Arizona, was graphio and thrilling. The
crossing of the Gila desert with its treach
erous mirage or ''fata morgana" and the
loss of some of the enlisted men from
thirst and hunger after losing their bear
ing on this sandy ocean, excited the sym
pathies of the hearers.
Then came the march into the San Pedro
mountains, where Fort Grant is situated,
and in the neighborhood of whioh Col.
Ilges discovered the remains of Captain
Miller (nephew of Senator Miller of Cali
fornia), of Dr. Stanton (nephew of then
secretary of war), and of nine soldiers and
teamsters, who had been surprised and
killed two days previous by the Mescal
and Touto Apaches.
The colonel then proceeded to give a de
tailed description of the arrival at the post,
and the departure of the California volun
teers, whom he came to relieve with his
command. Then followed a series of en
counters with the Apaches, showing the
craftiness of this wily foe, and many of his
treacherous and murderous deeds. The
most interesting portion of the lecture
was devoted by the colonel to the capture
of a white boy named Earnest Amaluny,
whose family had been massacred a few
months before the colonel's arrival in Ari
zona, and who himself, a mere baby scarce
ly one year old, was carried into the moun
tains. It seem?, that the late Int. Lieut.
Calhoun, of the 2d cavalry, and a brother
in-law of the late Gen. Custer (both fall
ing side by side at the well known massa
cre on the upper Yellowstone country,)
was at that time the post adjutant of
Fort Grant, and to him Colonel
Ilges entrusted a night attack upon the
Apaches in 1867. The expedition resulted
in scattering of the marauders and cap
turing of the little daughter of a Pinal
Apache chief, who was, from the faot of
haviiig six toes on eaoh foot, a renowned
medicine girl, endowed with healing and
other supernatural powers.
The possession of this valuable child,
of royal blood, gave the colonel an oppor
tunity to negotiate for an exchange with
the powerful chief.
The incidents of the capture of the In
dian girl and the recovery
of the white boy were listened
to with the closest attention
by a seemingly pleased audience. Col.
Ilges stated that at the time not knowing
anything about the history of the boy or
the whereabouts of any of his relatives, he
legally adopted him, and soon after recov
ery send him to school in San Bernardino,
Cab, and from there in 1870 to Europe,
where he is taken care of by the colonel's
and his own relatives, who reside in Ger
many and Austria.
After several minute descriptions of cam
paigns and dealings with the Indians, the
colonel proceeded to give his recollection
of their modes of life, their habits,
their moral (?) natures, their treat
ment of women, and finally gave a few in
teresting recitals of some of their beauti
ful traditions, which came to him from
their own lips.
It is unfortunate that the audienoe was
not greater, but the evening was injudi
ciously seleoted, and the lecture and topic
were insufficiently advertised and under
We learn from the colonel that he will
deliver his lecture in German some even
ing this week, after whioh he will at once
proceed to Washington on bnsiness of hia

The Investigation by a Committee of the
Legislature of Xe\y York into the Work
iny; of New York City's Internal Manage
ment —The x-asi Election Proceedings
New Yobk, Feb. 9.—The legislative inquiry
into the depar. men: s of tho city and county gov
ernmont was made interesting to-day by tho
presenoe in the witness chair of Mayor Edson,
Johu Kelly, John B. Haskin and Alderman
Pearson, the parties to the arrangement in the
house of John Kolly,which resulted in the nom
ination of Mayor Edson, and tho election of
Alderman Kirk, Tammany, as president of the
board of aldermen. The mayor said he met
Haskin at some time prior to the election at
John Kelly's house. At that meeting there was
no discussion about tho appointment of a fire
commissioner to succeed Gorman. The witness
denied the right of the committee to question
him concerning his acts prior to the date of his
election. He went to Knlly's house at the lat
ter's request, and met Kelly, Haskin and other*.
He was asked what his policy would be if he
were elected mayor. He replied he had ro cer
tain hope of securing a nomination, but if he
wore elected, he should be, as without pledges.
He would treat the Democratic party with jus
tice aod equity, and may have intimated that ho
might allow things to stand about as they wore.
He certainly made no promises about appoint
John Kelly deolined to answor any questions
as to what occurred at the meetisg at his house.
It was a strictly confidential meeting brought
about by himself, and he politely declined to
make known what occurred there. Kelly
said he had met Haskin on the day
of the meeting and asked him what he thought
of Edson, president of the produce exchange as
a candidate for the mayoralty. Haskin said he
knew Edson well and was in favor of his nomi
nation. The witness asked Haskin to come
to his honse and see Edson. This Haskin did.
Witness had heard Edson say he was a Demo
crat. He would probably uppoint Democrats
to fill the places of officials whoso terms were
about to expire. Farther than this Kelly
would not say. He knew all about the meeting.
Some of the Republican aldermen tock part in
the talk about the election of the president of
the board. The gentlemen met at his house at
his request. There were Aldermen Miller, Wen
del, Pearson andWaite. They were asked to
come to talk over the election of the president,
and witness hoped to induce them to vote for
the Democratic momber.
Haskins iaid, that at the meeting at Kelly's
house there were present, Edson, his brother-in
law, Wood and Spinola, Nichols, Gorman, Kelly
and himself. Tho conversation was opened by
Kelly, who said they were there to
consider the nomination of Mayor Edson to
the mayoralty. He made a few more remarks,
and thea spoke of Gorman, Nichols and Bren
nan as friends of his, atd wanted to know, if
EJson wore elected mayor, whether these men
would be retained in their respeotive offices of
fire and police commieeiorers, and commission
ers of charities and corrections. Edson replied
saying that he recognized the fact that Tammany
hall and the county Democracy wore Democrat
ic organizations of the county, and he could see
a reason for uniting these societies. If elected,
he said he would distribute the offiies, 6har9
and shaie alike. Kelly did not think this offer
specific enough. He wanted to know about the
police justices, and Edson gave bis tacit consent
to appoint to the ?acancy that occurred a Tam
many man, and promised in the same way that
Gorman, Nichols and Brennan, should be reap
pointed, aa Kelly had urged their reappoint
ment. I wanted a more defloite understand
ing, and before we left, I said to Edson, "do I
understand that you will reappoint these friends
of Kelly, who have been good officers, and di
vide the police justices between the Tammany
and county Democracy?" Edson said he would,
and he and I left the house together.
Alderman Jas. Pearscn. the newly elected
Republican member of tho board, testified that
he went with three other Republican aldermen
to John Kelly's house to make arrangements
for the election of a president of the boaid.
Whilo there it was agreed that the other three
members should vote for Kirk, a Tammany
man, on the understanding that the committees
were to be made up by Kirk according to a list
prepared by Alderman Waito, one of the Repub
licans present. Pearson took no part in the
contract, saying that he would not act until he
consulted with the remaining four Republican
alderman, who were wailing near by for word
from the conference. The votes of " the three
Republicans, and Kirk's own, elected Kirk the

At Galveston, Texas, there has been contin
