THE FALLING CAPITOL
.ichitect Buffington Trying
to Hang It to Its
.ats ami Mice Fled From tlie Top
Vacations and Fishing Excursions Favored
by the Officials.
A Clear-Cut Criticism of Huffington's
Assurances of Safety.
Familiarity with danger seemed to give the
denizens of the state house more security
yesterday, though it was observable that sev
eral of them were taking the present occa
sion to decamp on vacations and to go out
on Bailing excursions. A visit to the hall in
front of the private room? of the supreme
justices revealed three heavy timbers based
wilii jack screws, which were being operated
to raise a ceiling beam up in its center from
a position of an ludian bow to a
feorizoutal. Iron rods were being put
is here aud there to hoist floors, partitions
md ceilings in the third story of the east
wing roofwards and into their original posi
tion, while yawning gaps and seams in the
caucus room and halls adjoining, and by
heaps of fire proof cement, looked very
handsome for a public structure uot having
a chance to celebrate its second birthday.
Architect Buttington was in supervision of
the work of trying to tie up the floors of the
third story and ceiling of the second with
inch iron rods, which he told the denizens
would each support 5,000 pounds, to the
roof truss timbers, which by their shrinkage
it their entrance iuto the outer walla hay c
10 thrown the weight of the roof and tbe tire
proof filling upon the inner layers of brick
in those walls, throughout the whole build
ing, as to crack the inner walls of every
room in tlie whole structure both above and
below. How long these upper roof timbers,
all of which it is proposed to doctor with iron
rods, to the disfiguration of the building,
will hold the load thus pla:-cd upon them
would seem to be a question merely of
time, if in addition pillar supports are not
placed on both the second and third floors to
support the centers, as we understood had
been recommended by the governor before
the last Sunday's settling, and
which had beeu opposed by
Architect Bullington because these posts
would injure the appearance of the halls,
who also said there was "no fear" of the
happening of what did happen immediately
after the governor's wise suggestion.
it would Beem to be a common sense plan
to commence In the basement and .stave up
tin- floors of the capital from thence to where
the weak trusses hang down, but by this
ironing up with rods of weakness to weak
ness and continuing to pile on the overladen
camel's back still greater burdens of weight
then- i.-> no telling when the insecure foothold
of the shrunken timbers in the inner brick
walls may give way, and the roofs of the
wings come tumbling in with a crash. If
this kind of policy of kite work is to be pur
sued instead of replacing the wooden
trusses (which the architect admits should be
of iron to sustain the weight put upon them
from above and below), then we may soon
expect to sec an iron collar placed about the
neck of the goddess of Justice wbicb sur
mounts tbe dome, with chains extending
down therefrom and yolked into the roofs of
the four wings as an ad Htlonal air support.
Late in the afternoon, Gates Johnson
building inspector, <>f the city,
was being shown over
the wreck by Architect Burlington, who was
very busy enlightening him as to Uie coal
mine shaft supports he was putting in to
hold the floors and ceilings up to the roof,
but ib- re was all the time of the exhibition a
-. r. o ber look on tbe face of tbe Inspector,
which did nol betoken ti al he was any more
satisfied wlib the "nick solidity" of the busi
ui tbe governor, who is closely
watching tbosi "mechanical" movements,
■ • ' -cupants of the offices below, who do
not roll i the Idea of bring immolated on
Vi -t'.'i'di.v morning Architect Buffington
culled at clerk Nichols, of the supreme
court's office, to rally him on "his useless
fears" thai the structure would tumble In
and bury bim In b shroud of court syllubus.
Mr. Nichols Informed him that be was no
c iward, but that the coming into his office "f
citizons ;-. ii i mechanics and telling him that
he was 11 Ci.mil in stay therein at the risk of bis
life, nnd what his own r\<r. had shown him
io- tv tin- condition of the upper part of the
second and third sturies of lhe east win.-,
Mire anything but quieting tn a man's
nerves, and that he felt as
though the occupants of the
building should be thoroughly convinced of
their peril or non-peril by tin- examination

state, however, that lint a rat nr tnoUSe, l>"tn
of which thoroughly Infested the structure
the tir- 1 fi w months of its ' ecu] am y by the
state, could now in- found therein.
Thereupon Architect Buffington completely
ridiculed tbe idea of the structure's being
unsafe, and pro, lied to show Mr. N'l'-boK
"■-ii paper" a plan of s roof tru-s, und h <\\
in- was raising the same up by iron rod-, into
place v it ti his jack screws.
This did nol Batisfy Mr. Nichols, who
pressed home on the architect the fact that
the roof was ton neKVlh burdened by Its at
tachments above and below, and asked him
as uu architect why he had permitted such
ii strain to be placed upon these trusses us to
<io such damage us they hud to the whole
The architeel retorted that the "building
was (food enough for St. Paul, and thai s
barn would be good enough for it." Intimat
ing that the stinginess of the city in contrib
uting to build the enterprise, and
Its desire to l>ivl ii down with
i lon wooden trusses, was none of
bis 'are or business when it was erected.
Mr Nichols held him op to the ring rope

Mr. Editor: Inasmuch a- pabik attention
has been called to im* in this
■troctora, anil in some taste— ces not a little
excitement manifested, permit ma the use
of yonr cotuma for f. \ brief **>
murks. Several competent buildera who have
n > rm.-t'ii to exprcae other than nnprejn
-. have tro_ time to time declared
t ■.:...-...- In be thaeesre. V. •*>•; My they
si! err in judgment, and iv Ha editorial
art; I U_* morning tho Pioneer
Prma Kane to take it for granted that they
have errvd, and impliedly reflects somewhat
v upon Mr. Gates A. Johnson for agree
ing with them in optulon. $
N i. permit mo to Inquire upon whose
authority It Is that the opinious alluded to
are questioned! I? It not wholiv upon the
.incut of the architect. Mr. Bullit |
who planned and superintended the erection
. of this tdtfet I 4 **•-' uct know of anj other i
expert testimony in support of the opinion
that the building is solid and safe. The
question then arises, is Mr. Bulliington's
expression entirely worthy of confidence'
That it ought to be I will not dispute, %>r he
should have known, when putting up the
building, whether the materials used and the
combinations adopted were of a character
to insure solidity. He should have
known the strength of every stick
of timber, every rod of iron and every stone,
and been certain of its ability to sustain the
weight depending upon it.
But was this so J We cannot be expected
to believe it under existing circumstances,
foj the fact is palpable that there is weak
ness and imperfection, and that the structure
has given away in some important places,
and while the permanency oi" the entire
building may not be seriously imperiled, nor
the lives of its inmates absolutely cu
dangered by these defects, Mr. Baf
fingtou certainly has no cause for com
plain t if those who arc most Interested
shall refuse to rely upon his present assur
ances of safety. He evidently did not know
that what has occurred would happen, and
therefore there is room for presuming thai
he does not now know what further inquiry
may < r.sue. In other Words, what has already
happened to the building proves him to have
been Uznorant, in a remarkable degree, of
the science of architecture, aud with this
cloud resting upon his profession of compe
tency, he h-s no riirht to ask or expect that
the public shall continue to place confidence
in his statements.
It is no part of the writer's in
tention to reflect upon Mr. Buff
ington's ability or honesty, but it certain
ly is not fair to condemn others upon author
ity wbicb is, to say the least, questionable;
nor is it any excuse for Mr. Bufflngton now
to allege that the imperfections are due to
tbe m eagerness of the amount of money
available for its construction. — the funds
were insufficient be should have said so at
the time, and suggested such changes in his
pian as would have reduced the exp usive
ness without affecting the durability of the
structure. The truth is, a considerable share
of the expense might have been avoided
without detriment to cither its usefulness or
beauty. X. Y.

Report of Independent Republicans
After an Investigation of
Charges Against Gover
No Jividence to Support Any Accusation
Against the Governor.
[Buffalo Courier, Aug. 12.J
"The general charges of drunkenness and
gross immorality which are made against
Gov. Cleveland are absolutely false. Hi 6
reputation for morality has been good. There
is no foundation for any statement to tbe
contrary. He was sought out for and nomi
nated for the mayorality against his will, aud
was supported for that position by the larger
portion of the educated, intelligent and
moral citizens of Buflalo without regard to
politics and on purely personal grounds.
After he had gone through this contest, he
was again put forward as one of the most
distinguished citizens of Buffalo as a candi
date for the governorship,and again received
the support of the governorship, and again
received the support of the same class of his
fellow citizens. In this community where
he had lived for twenty-nine years, and
where his life was known and
his character well understood.
This support would not have been given to
him had he been either a drunkard or a lib
ertine. We are able to speak from personal
knowledge, as his acquaintances of long
standing say that his general private life has
been that of a quiet, orderly, self-respecting
and always highly respected citizen. Since
he assumed his present office his visits to
Buffalo have been few and of short duration.
It is susceptible of absolute proof, and has
been proved to us, that upon no one of these
visits has anything occurred to justify the
statements which have been made by his de
tractors. The charge that he has recently
taken part in a drunken and licentious de
bauch in Buffalo on the occasion of such a
visit is entirely false.
"We have been particularly careful and
thorough in our investigations of the alleged
betrayal, seduction, and inhuman treatment
of a woman of this city, as detailed in a local
newspaper. The circumstances out of which
this story was fabricated occurred eight years

Was at that time a widow, between thirty and

these the only features of the charge In con
nection with this matter which constitute a
public, question requiring any declaration on
Our examination of the other charges which
have been made against Gov. Cleveland's
private character shows that they are wholly
untrue. In every instance in which the re
ports and insinuations have been tangible
enough to furnish a clew to guide us in our
investigation, they have been positively
proved to be false. The attack upon Gov.
Cleveland's character is thoroughly discred

by a newspaper of no standing whatever.
We have twice called upon the editor of this
paper and asked him to produce his proofs,
the names, dates, and other particulars

to show. He declined to do so or to facilitate
an investigation into the truth of either his
own charges or those contained in the anony

his case on that, and as to that story he is

[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
NAsnviLLE, Term., Aug. 12. — News was
received to-night of a terrible fight in Lewis
county yesterday, between disguised men
and Mormons. For some time Mormon
ciders have been proselytinc; In Lewis and
Hickman counties with considerable success.
People have expressed great indignation and
determination to drive them away. Yesterday
a Mormon meeting was held at the house
of a man named Condon, at the east fork of
Cave creek, near the postoffice of Ivery
Mills, in Lewis county. Several Mormons
were present, including three elders. While
the meeting was in progress ten or twelve
masked men rode up and demanded the sur
render of Condon's son and a young man
named Hudson. This was refused and tbe
Mormons began to show resistance. One of
the masked men walked in and knocked
young Condon down with his gun, breaking
his skull. Hudson fired and fatally
wounded one of the masked men,
who proved to be DavldjHlnson,awell known
farmer of Hickman county. The masked
men then opened a general fire on the
crowd. Some of tbe elders were killed out
right, one ran behind Condor's wife and a
shot struck the woman in the leg, breaking
it. A third elder, whose name was Gibbs,
fled to tbe woods, pursued by some of the
masked men . Shots were heard, but it was
subsequently learned that Gibbs was seen on
the road some distance from the scene and
it is supposed be escaped.
It was learned that the masked men, in
going to the meeting at Condon's house,
stopped at the house near by, of a man named
Garrett a Mormon convert. Here they found
another Mormon elder. He was taken to the
woods and left in charge of two masked men.
Soon after firing wa» heard, and there is little
doubt thst he was killed. Tbe men were armed
with double-barreled shotguns loaded with
buckshot. The scene of the trouble is off
the railroad and telegraph lines. Parties
have gone out from Centerville. the nearest
station, to investigate and get full particu
lars. Hickman and Lewis counties are
greatly excited over the occurrence and
further bloodshed is apprehended.
