WASHINI.TOX. Feb. ft. The most caustic
Utterances heard in the senate since Till
man's 'U.V.ional sierch was that of Vest,
during a speech en tho great quct-tlon of
freo distribution of seeds, arraigning Sec
retary of Agriculture M-Tton. TL-e keen
aim and ridieulo directed nga!nst the
arorclaxy, and tho allusion to tho presi
dent, made tho speech hardly less notable
than tnat which recently startled the sen
ate. Vent referred derisively to "tho co
lossal intellect dealing with cabbages."
At ono point the senator said: "Tho se

Vest sever, lr criticized tho practice of
furuisbln; ostly tlowera from govern
Hunt greenhouses for the receptions at
the riet-iitive mansion and added: "Mr, I
Would rather giv, twice I he amount of

Vest referred to tho tllllly.W.lttt, trmn
' the secretary of agriculture against the
congressional extravagance in distribut
ing eeetli "Tho Democratic party has
been moat unfortunate," said the senator
with emphasis, "not only as to its inter
national discords, but also in the fact that
the devil has owed us a grudgo and has
paid it in a secretary of agriculture. The
secretary has put the Democratic party in
entaQjutsm to tho (treat agricultural In
terests of the party, although that party
has always stiwd as tho closo friends of
agriculture. Tho gigantic intellect of this
Secretary of agriculture has daily gone

"assumes to run tho entire government
Ho has been practically tho secretary of

lunatics and upholding tho single

secretary of agriculture is a monomaniac
on tho gold standard. He sees only gold,
gold, red gold, and ho thinks any man
who does not sco as ho sees is a lunatic."
Vest closed with a rcmnrkably sarcastic
nnd bitter peroration. Ho referred to the
"nscli-ss seeds," which it was asserted tho
secretary had properly refused to buy.
Hut there was ono seed not mentioned.
"It wns." ho proceeded, smiling sarcastic
ally, "tho aun-fur feniculum caues roor

Cincinnati, Fob. 6. A student at the

Examination of the Suspect.
Accordingly at 10: 15 o'clock Scott Jack
son was in tho mayor's office tinder cx
a lunation by the mayor and chief of po
lice. There was no question cf identity. He
was undoubtedly tho man wanted wheth
er innocent or guilty. Ho was not in
dignant when arrested, but denied his
guilt, admitted that ho knew tho girl, but
denied knowing where 6ho was or had
beon during tho past few weeks. Jackson
said he was in his room at the boarding
house all night. His roommate Lamping
said Jackson was in tho room at 10 p. m.,
but did not know how long ho stayed.
The most suspicious part of Jackson's do
ings was his conduct last Saturday. He
is known to havo carried a valiso nil
over the city, and tho missing head is
supposed to have been iu tho valise. The
accounting for this valiso and why bo
carried it all day and night puzzled him
moro than any thing else. In fact ho
prevaricated and afterward acknowledged
that ho had lied.
Origin of tho Case Summarized.
Last Saturday morning tho body of a
woman, evidently murdered, with thu
head cut off, was found near Fort Thonui,
.ivy., iew mues irom tnis citv. fciuco
then the officers of this city, Newport and

effort to find the murderer. Every clew
was pursued. They have kept tho body
at the Newport morgue, and have bc-en
unable to lind tho head, although thoi
soldiers of tho fort joined with the citizens
and officers in scouring tho country,
dredging tho Ohio river, nnd tributaries,
and in draining reservoirs. Tho first
clow was struck at Greencastle, Indiana,
developing ono of tlio most brutal mur

Clothing of tho Murdered Girl Identified
by Her Parents,
A special to Tho Commercial-Gazette
from Greencastle, Ind., says: The family
of A. S. Bryan, a leading farmer living
less than two miles from this city, have
identified tho clothing brought hero by
detectives from Cincinnati and Newport,
Ky., ns that of their daifghtcr. Pearl Bry
an. J. hey furnish other information ar.d
circumstances which leave no doubt in
tho minds of tho officers thnt the body of
tho woman murdered and beheaded is
that of their daughter. Pearl, aged 23
years, who left homo Jan. SS, ostensibly
to visit her friend, Miss Jane Fisher, on
Central nvenne, Indianapolis.
They havo made every possiblo inouirv
and find that, sho did not visit Miss Fisher
in Indianapolis, but that sho was taken to
Cincinnati by Scott Jackson. Sho took
with her a sn itch of hair which was
brought here by the officers and identified,
as well ns the clothing, and locks of her
own hair. Tho shoes that were brought
here by tho officers wero bought of Louis
& Hayes by Pearl Bryan, Nov. la, 1st 5,
and tho marks wero identified by tho
dealers. As soon us tho tfficcrs inter
viewed Mr. and Mrs. Bryan and other
members of their family they sent word to
Cincinnati to havo 5cott Jackson arrested.
The mother of Scott Jackson lives here
and tho families were intimate and high
ly respected. Tho Bryan family also pave
information that led the officers to order
tho arrest of William Wood, the son cf
Rev. D. 31. Wood, of South Bend, Ind.
Detectives Crutu and McDermott, of Cin
cinnati, and Sheriff Plummer, ef New
port, Ky., left hero last night for Sjuth
B"iul to arrest Wood. Tho families of
Jackson, Wood and Bryan aro all well
known hero and the tragedy has created
tha greatest excitement that wns ever
known in this part cf Indiana.
The clew to the arrest of Jackson and
Wood was jri veil to tiioofficx-as by Will
iam Karl, the Western Union operator
here. Ho saw a letter written by Scott
Jackson to William Wood, in which tho
former told tho latter what to give Pearl
Bryan, nnd outlined treatment for her.
The olUcers bad learned from tho post
mortem a: Newport, Ky.. that the mur
dered woman was about to become a
mother. When Pearl left homo Jan. iS
it is believed that it was for a continua
tion of treatment by ber alleged seducer.
