he hail no intention of having it

tempts to rob or obstruct for
the purpose of robbing a train
on which mails arc carried, be pun
ished by imprisonment not for less
than one nor more than 20 years.

freely about, the bribery case in which he
Senator Htm ton and Major Butts are
the principals. Senator Kyle believes the
man was in earnest; that ho meant to buy
votes; and, further, that he was only the
agent of a New York-lawyer sent to
Washington by some powerful syndicate.

After the first interview with him I
went to Senator Yoorbees aud told him
that certain offers of money were being
made. After this man had been to see me
several times he got to the point of hav

New Yokk. May 2'.-There was a sen
sational scene iu St. Michael's Koman
Catholic church in t.-llville avenue, New
ark, during the celebration of the half-
past 10 o'clock mass, and when Father
Hugh Murphy, who for ten months has
beeu a curate of St. Michael s, was led
from the altar rail apparently against
his earnest protestations by two well
built men, nnd thence along the center
aisle to the street and into the parish
houe adjoining, there was surprise on
every face in the large eoucregation.
Tuis happened at the point in the serv
ices just before the sermou and just after
Father Murphy, who was not conducting
the m.-iss, had beguu to talkmiu a posi
tion iu front of the nltar rail. Father
Murphy had lieen dismissed from the par
ish by Uudiop Wigger last Monday, nnd
while protestirg to the congregation
uaiust the injustice of this proceedure he
was stopped by the detectives and removed
from the church. Nobody will talk of the
occurrence, but it is understood to be the
outcome of his refus::l to ohay the bishop's
decree of removal.
