THE STAR ROUTE CASES.
The Counsel for the Government Play
ing into the Star-Routers' Hands.
Bribery ofthe Witnesses Common—The Char
acter of Cook, the Special Counsel.
Washinotok, April 10. —0. II. Woodward,
inspector for the postoiliee department, was
examined by the Springer committee this
forenoon in relation lothe alleged star routes
frauds, lie described the interview at the
White house between President Garfield,
Postmaster-General James, and himself,
as related by James in his testimony
before the committee, and contin
ued: Shortly after the engagement
Di Wm. A. Cook as special in the
cases I received a summons from President
Garfield to be at the White house at a desig
nated hour. Without mucii preface he said
he had sent for me, to ask if I could explain
how tbe appointment came to be made.
That the day before, a judge of the supreme
court informed him that Cook was one of
the most disreputable men in Washington,
and the selection was a disgrace to the ad
ministration. The witness attempted to justify
the appointment, but subsequently was in
formed that Cook was selling out the govern
ment case. In un interview with the presi
dent Cook insisted that immunity be
granted S. W. Dorsey on account of his
great services lo the Republican party. In
answer I suggested that penal laws aud pen
itentiaries were not devised for the exclusive
benelit of the Democrats. In order to show
the depravity of tiie star routers Cook told
the president that Gen. Brady had already
attempted to corrupt even him.
"Him, Cookf interposed .Milnkcn.
"Yes, him. He said he had been invited
to meet a representative of that gen
tleman at The Portland. Fearing a trap he
declined to go thither, but did receive the
representative at hi- own oilice, having first
prudently concealed a detective under the
bed to overhear the conversation. A. M.
Gibson, late of the prosecution, also received
the attention of Woodward." There was littie
in witness' narrative that differed from the
information given the committee by others.
In fact, it was verv similar to the state
ments by ex-Post Master General James, and
it; .- nnd uk fi matter of eeneral interest is

Tlie Standard Oil Case.
Philadelphia, March 10.—Gowen closed

20,000.000 barrels of oil were produced iu

road from $10,000,000 to $15,000,000, and
these receipts were then taxed by thc state.
Now the oil is carried oil in pipes and the
commonwealth has lost a large revenue for

A COLD BLOODED MURDER.
An Inoffensive Couple Foully Mur
dered by Their Hired Man.
Mattoon, 111., April 10.—An aged couple
named Fleetwood, living near Randon, were
murdered yesterday, and the following par
ticulars are given: The old folks slept on the
first floor, and a married daughter, small
child, and hired man, James Winkleback,
slept upstairs. All retired early. The daugh
ter was awakened later, hearing
Winkleback going down stairs,
but dozed off, and was again
awakened by hearing the sound as of blows
being struck in the room below, but went to
sleep again. She was roused by the smell of
smoke. She called to tbe hired man that the
house was on fire. He told her to jump out
of the window. She ran down stairs and
found the bed in which her father and moth
er lay on fire. Winkleback, at her request,
went reluctantly to arouse the neighbors. She
then extinguished the flames,
and found the aged couple
with their throats cut, and the heads beaten
in. Winkleback was suspected. He had
blood on his trousers, and wore a clean shirt
though lie had on a soiled one when he re
tired at night. The well was pumped dry,
and his axe, covered with blood and hair,
found at the bottom. Winkleback stoutly as
serted his innocence. The coroner's jury
held him for murder. The sheriff started
with him for jail at Charleston. A crowd ot
five hundred who had collected at the scene,
threatened to lynch him before morning.The
old couple had no money in the house, and
his reasons for the crime is unknown. The
sheriff has succeeded in getting Winkleback
the supposed murderer of the Fleetwood
couple, away from the crowd at the
scene of the tragedy, aud landing him safely
in the jail here. A revolver which Winkle
back acknowledged is his was found with
two chambers empty. It is believed that be
shot Mrs. Fleetwood with it before crushing
her head with the axe.

now in press, it appears that the newspapers
and periodicals of all kinds at present issued
in the United States and Canada reach a
grand total of 13,402. This is a net gain of
precisely 1.000 duriug the last twelve months,
aud exhibits an increase of 5,CIS over the
total number published just ten years since.
The increase in 1874 over the total for 1873
was 493. During the past year tbe dailies
have increased from 1,138 to 1,254; the
weeklies from 9,062 to 10,028; and the
monthlies from 1,091 to 1,499. The greatest
increase is in the western states. Illinois,
foriustance, now shows 1,009 papers in place
of last year's total of 904, while Missouri is
sues (504 instead of the 523 reported in 18S3.
Other leading western states also exhibit a
great percentage of increase. The total num

against 1,399 in 1S83. Canada has shared in
the general increase.

Our Former Townsman's Yiew of Eu
ropean Feeling Towards
Other Matters of Interest in Great Britain
and ou the Continent.
[Special Correspondence Daily Globe.]
London, Eng., March 27.—London Js
very dull in parliament last night, there was
i scarcely a quorum. Mr. Gladstone is still on
j the sick list and unable to be present, and
i the opposition are taking a rest in not hav
ing a hundred questions or more to embar
ras him on the Egyptian question, i wrote
you several letters just before the German
Lasker incident and the dynamite agitation
in London, but have failed to see them in
print in the numbers of the Globe received.
Some numbers have failed to reach me, but
as the letters were not very flattering in re
gard to the feeling of the English press and
people towards the United States showing
greediness and envy as well as egotism, for
which the English are so well known.
On the news of Graham's victory over the
Arabs in the last fight near Tamauieb, the
people here seemed to think that a battle had
been fought greater than Gettsburg, and
while the enemy's number was given at
9,000 by Graham and the English 4,000, the
papers claim they killed 4,000 and wounded
5,000, so the whole lot were "gobbled," and
I the people here shake hands and drink over
: it. The English took no prisoners nor
j wounded—had to kill the wounded as they
j fought to the last. Graham places enemy's
I loss at 2,000. The English army here now
are sick with the hot weather and want to
come home, says the news to-day.
The letter may have beeu suppressed, as no
doubt a great many letters, etc., were opened
and examined on their way to America about
the time of the dynamite "scare."
The envy of Europe toward America ls well
known. It is asserted that "the powers"
will made some demand on Switzerland (an
insignificant power as far as armies and navies
are concerned) in regard to giving an asylum
to political adventurers, and "the powers"
would do so to the United States if it was not
for the 55,000,000 inhabitants they are afraid
of. It was reported here thit sueh a demand
wonld be made, .and I saw . in a
French paper that the United States would
blush aud ought to be humiliated at the re
buke of England in remonstrating against
dynamite attempts, etc., through its minister
at Washingtou (as it was asserted in a friend
Bismarck in his speech before the Reich
stag, in regard to the "Lasker incident"said
that Germany had always been friendly to
America, was the first to recognize her as a
nation and although Importuned had always
avoided taking part against, or interfering iu
her affairs, (I give tiie language in substance.)
Now what did he mean by saying (in sub
stance) that overtures bad been made to
Germany to do something against the United
States? by what power, andfor what purpose?
As I said to you in my recent
letters, if congress does not
see the necessity of, and at once make pro

English boast they could put ou the lakes in
case of war, to destroy our cities on the lakes

their aid. Don't think me sensational
at all. ' 'In time of peace,
prepare for war." Insure against
disaster. By doing so the United States will
have peace, honor, dignity, and be respected
abroad as one of the great nations (as she is),
but whose defences are only laughed at
by the "great powers," who, pretending
friendship (except that the massesof working
people are with us), their aristocracy would
like to see us snubbed, insulted or subdued
by the powers of Europe, if they could only
agree and dared to make the attempt. That
war, growing out of socialistic troubles, is
not of my own imagination. I append an
extract of the London Evening Standard of a
few weeks ago, to show that war was dream

the avowed object was to destroy British
property and to slaughter British sub
jects, they would be liable to arrest
and punishment without proof of any special
overt aet. Such persons would not be enti
tled to the privilege of being dealt with un
der the municipal law, nor would they have
a right to be treated as prisoners of war. The
levying of war iu any form by aliens as a
private enterprise is a piratical offense. Be
cause we are at peace with the United States,
does it follow that the members and agents
of the American dynamite gaug ought to be
treated with greater leniency I If England
were at war with the United States, the
Washignton governmeut would he com
pelled to prohibit and suppress any asso
ciation of its citizens to levy private
war of auy kiud against its foe; for otherwise
it would be disgraced asa civilized belliger
ent, and would provoke terrible and disas
trous reprisals. Because we arc at peace with
the United States, does it follow that the
Washington government ought to tolerate
the collection of a fund to pay for the de
struction of British property and the slaugh
ter of British subjects? The effect of a re
monstrance addressed to the Washington
government may be doubtful; but if we had
a law based on the lines of the international
law to meet the present case, this country
would assuredly be much less infested with
American, Fenian and dynamite miscreants.
Surely the tone of the European powers,
a few weeks ago, spasmodic though it was.
should be a warning to us to be ready to

contractors could, in a small degree, have
that patriotism, or the spirit of that great
man Washington about him, who refused to
receive any recompense except his actual
expenses as commander of the continental

Some Interesting Prognostications
Eegarding Its Future.
Things are moderately quiet in this village
this spring. The usual influx of lumbermen,
who have passed the winter in 'the up river
lumbering camps and now are returning
home making Aitkin lively en-route, has
transpired, and at present there are more or
less of them in town, but they are remarka
bly quiet and civil this spriug, and have lost
their usual spirit of bluster and bravado,
which in former times made Aitkin a wild
town. Perhaps tbc incorporation of Aitkin
into a village and the establishment of a
more thorough system of local government
has had something to do with it. It is safe
to say as a rule that whenever the people of
any locality desire law and order they gradu
ally have it. Anyway a more quiet, law
abiding village than the Aitkin of to-day is
would be hard to find.
During the last few months Aitkin has
bad several business reverses. Being en
tirely a lumbering village, it requires a con
siderable amount of capital to conduct its
business and; most unfortunately, several
enterprises were undertaken last season by
people who had not the necessary capital to
carry them into successful operation. This
has given the place a check which while un
pleasant to those in business here will no
doubt in the end prove a blessing.
The three steam saw-mills here will un
doubtedly all be run this season, and having
a combined capacity of 130,000 feet per day
will make things lively, Another source of
support for the town lies in the steamboating
of the upper river, which makes Aitkin a ter

hailed the stranger, Young Dupont was at
the helm himself, and insisted that the vess
el proceed, not heeding the signals from the
war ships. Two broadsides were poured iu
to tbe vessel, but she was able to steam
ahead and stear through the rocks, and was
beached inside the Russian lines. This dar
ing adventure saved the cargo, for which the
Russian Government paid the sum of $3,
Throughout the civil war the family ren
dered distinguished services to the govern
ment, and at the very beginning of the re
bellion Mr. Lammot Dupont was placed in a
position by which, through his energy and
genius, the country was supplied with the
means of defense for the ensuing conflict.
The Cone Placer Mining Company Re
newing Its Fame.
The Cone company is now ready to move
in earnest, and the precious dust will soon be
pouring out of old Emigrant in larger quan
tities than ever before. The order for the
necessary machinery has gone on to the com
pany's office in Minneapolis, and there will
be no delay in making the purchases and
shipment. Probably the required open cut—
in excavating wbich we have no doubt, from
what we have heard of the richness of the
ground, a good showing of gold will
be made wiU be completed by the
first of July, when the gravel banks
will tumble and give up their wealth
under a powerful hydraulic pressure. Work
wiii be pushed night and day until the
ground is brought into producing condition.
We that the Cone stockholders will
be the happiest mon in the country before
the snow of another -winter whitens the
valleys—that is to say, when they shall make
their first clean-up; and then, too, they will
be the most hopeful, in view of what the
future will certainly hold in store for them.
Then thc report is afloat in mining circles
that a strong company will soon be employ
ing working forces on the rich quartz veins
thut cross Emigrant Gulch above the Cone
Iu addition to the above, the Cone Placer
Mining company states that gold is now be
ing taken out of the ground, which will be
placed in V. G. Hush's bank, at Minneap
olis, for the payment of dividends on shares
of the capital stock now sold, thus making
the above company now on a sound paying
basis, with the richest ground yet to work,
wliich will yield an output of $-2.50 per cubic
yard, from grass roots to bed rock, averaging
thirty feet deep. The mines consist of forty
acresof gravel, hing in the mouth of Emi-
grant gulch, Gallatin county, Montana, the
richest iu the world, and only three and a
half miles from Fridly's station, on the Park
Branch railroad, the only mines where visi
tors can witness the work of mining gold
carried on, on the line of the Northern Paci
fic railroad. The capitalization of this aom
pany's stock Bhares is $200,000, the par value
of each share being $10, now sold at $5 per
share. Only 9,000 shares have been offered
for sale at §5 pcr share, each share being un
assessable and sold for working capital.
A large number of tliese .-hares have
already beeu purchased. Mr. Walter
Cooper, of Bozeman, is president of the
company. He is a merchant of reliability,
also president of tlie board of trade of Boze
man. The treasurer and Beeretarv of the com-
pany, is Mr. George B. Hall, of Minneapolis,
Miuu., who is a bonded officer. The mines
will be worked by the hyihaulic process and
be made to yield* between $1,000 and $3,000
per day. Those wanting to place their money
where the largest results will be obtained
would do well to look into this matter aud do
SO at once lf they wisli to get the shares at
$5 each. When the gold is being taken out in
large quantities the capital stock will take w
rise to par,and that will be within sixty days.
To the poor mau, yonng men, women, and
the rich man, here ls au opportunity now
oli'ered to invest your money where you can
reili/c larger dividends than in any other
enterprise ever before offered. For full in-,
formation and capital stock shares, call or
address Geo. B. Hall.secretary and treasurer,
222 Nicollet avenue, room '.'. over Fir-t Na
tional bank, and V. G. Hush's bauk, Minne
The quality of gold produced [by the
mines of the above company, is what is
known as coarse gold, and sells for $-20 per
ounce at the mint. In the adjoining claim
to the Cone Co., nuggets have been found in
the old pay streak that are worth as high as
$'.•.50 each, and when the Cone company
reach this pay streak they will make the
same finds which wili .-till make larger divi
dends to the stockholders, as the precious
colors are taken from their long hiding
place and shipped In sacks to V. (r. Hush's
bank, where the dividends will be paid.
Should the Coeur d'Alcne excitement
prove disappointing—as many apprehend
and predict old Emigrant, will not fs.il to re
inspire confidence iu our northern gold
mines. The Upper Yellowstone is now the
rising star in the sky of mining enterprises,
and no mistake.
