Saturday, July 27. 1889.
That the laboring men are getting
their eyet opened to the iniquities of the
war tariff, is evidenced in the result of
the special election at Braidwood, III.,
the other day. Kelly, the demociatic
candidate for mayor, was elected over
Francis, republican, bv 187 majority.
The election was held for the purpose of
filling the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of Mayor Corey, who was superin
tendent of the Chicago, Wilmington and
Vermillion mines at the time the lock out
was ordered. Mr. Corey removed to Se
attle threj 'weeks ago. He was elected
by one majority on a republican ticket
over a man nominated by the miners. In
Thursday's election the mining troubles
did not liter into the light. Roth candi
dates were in sympathy with the miners,
but the Imter took occasion to avow their
hoetiliiy to the party of protective tariff,
At the presidential election Ilraidwood
went strongly republican and has always
been considered certain to give that par
ty 2il majority.

The parent trust of all, the Standard

System in New York.
A STARTLING STATE OF AFFAIBS.
llarrtHnn'n Manila)- Mteanibtiatlng.
Some of the religious papers have been
pitching into Elder Harrison very bnskl
because of his Sunday pleasure trips
Their strictures have elicited a defense
from the elder. "No one," he says,
more zealous for the proper observance o!
the Sahhttih than I am: and no one would
tie more scrupulous about his own cod
duct in this respect than I have been; yet
these newspaMTS are tryini: to make peo
pie believe that I have suddenly tiecom
grossly inconsistent in this regard. They
know that I have no other tirr.e for rest
and they know that I must have rest if
am to keep on with my work. The
know, too, that when I have gone dow
the river every Sunday, I have done noth
ing but rest."
We are afraid Elder Harrison is back
sliding. Here in Indianafiolis he whs al
ways regarded as a strict Sabbatarian. I
he goes steamboating on Sunday for rest,
why should he find fault w ith others who
go fishing, or driving, or play base ball,
or do other things on Sunday which the
elder, it is understood, has nlwnys con
sidered wicked V As the New York Sun
The sort of rest which consists in sits
ting still in a steamboat is too poor for
the case. It leaves the mind occupied
with habitual subjects of reflection, and
this will not do. If the president would
only go fishing, he w ould ect diversion; he
would lie drawn aw ay from the ordinary
occupations of his bruin. aud would really
find rest. He will any, perhaps, that
this would be interfering with the pro
per observance of the Suhoath; but it
would not interfere any more than his
practice of steamboat traveling. The
sin would remain about as it is now, and
it would accomplish a purpose which the
steamboat traveling cannot.
The Sun further suggests that if El
der Harrison finds the labors of the pres
idency so hard that be must obtain teat
bv breaking the Sabbath, he can resign
and let Vice-President Morion try it. But
this fancy sort of rest in a government or
private steamboat, tiaveling up and down
the Potomac on the Sabbath, and kcp,
ins? a crew of men hard at. work instead
of civini: them a day off to co to church
is not what was expected from a good
preshyterian like B. H."
However, if these Sunday excursions
were the only lapses to le charged up to
the account of President Harrison his case
would not be hopeless. Steamboating on
Sunday may be considered exceedingly
wicked by many good people, but it is
certainly a venial offense compared with
the violation of pledges solemnly given to
the people, the bestowal of important
trusts upoiuthieves and other kinds
rascals, and the use of the power of the
presidency to promote the unholy schemes

A Terrible State of Affairs.
In these rooms were crowded eight to ten
men and women. No word or series of
words can le found to express the amount of
dirt or the qti-tlity of the atmosphere. Both
were awful and overpowering to any ordi
narily clean person. - Hre the slaves of the
"sweaters" worked from daylight to 10 and
12 at nilit, many of the men rarely going
home, but throwing themselves down on the

"Ilreeiiliorns" are frequently brought in

are the "sweaters" themselves so much to

many of the others, getting up at 2 o'clock
in the morning to prepare the work fur the
day, ami their earnings are comparatively
insignificant. The stories heard by the Bos
ton delegates had a sameness about them
that enforced their truth. The committee
said they would begin a crustde against the

There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition
bearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh
which is nothing but an inflamed condi

Omaha, July 27. Omaha society has been
stnrtled by a sensation strange but true, in
which love, Mission, matrimony, intrigue,
and betrayal are interwoven. Rumors of
of the affair have been in the air for some
days, but it was not until yesterday, when
K. C. Barton, son of Millionaire Uuy C.
Barton, returned from his wedding tour
without his bride that the facts became
known. The plot of the story 0ens at
Ogdensbnrg, N. Y., where lived Alice
Bridges, now Mrs. Barton. She was not
beautiful, but bright, interesting, energetic,
and thoroughly attractive. Sue had been
adopted by a well-known lady who hail also
taken to her home a young man named
Hnllam. The latter was a handsome wan,
intellectual and fascinating. Hnllam and
Miss Bridges foil in love desperately, but
both agreed that they were too poor to
innrry. This, however, did not prevent a
step w hich only marriage could atone, and
in this relation the two remained secretly,

In the midst of this romance Mi-s Bridges

a pack ge of letters from t;df nsburg which
proved beyond a doubt thai in marrying Miss
Iti idges his son bad become the il l im of one
of the most audacious and vi laitious plots
ever cinocted either in reality or fiction. The
letter was fr.on an old friend of the father.
The package of letters this friend had also
sent. They were letters writ'en by Miss
Kritlires to llallam. most of them dated sub
sequent to the marri.ige. They showed that
even la-fore the acc-ptance by Miss
Bridges of the offer of the Om
aha young man these two lovers and
conspirators had consulted over it in the
most cold-blooded way; that he had adrised
the lnarriai on account of the wealth of the
prospective groom and the possibility of reap
inur a uarvest irom it, ami that sue, earring
nothing whatever for the man she promised
to marry. bu,t blindly infatuated with her
lover at Ogdeburg. had finally consented to
her share iu carrying out the scheme.
Cold tUooded and Devilish riot.
The letter showed that the original design
was that Halhim should meet the husbaiid
and wife at MontrtmL, where they exported to
stop during their wedding Journey; that Hal-
lam should there induce the husband to
drink: that the liquor should be drugged; that
the stupefied man should be ltd or conveyed
to a house of ill-reputu. that in this predica
ment he should be discovered in the most
public way possible; that his dishonored
bride shouM leave him in burning indigna
tion and should immediately bring t-uit for
divorce and alimony. They showed that for
some reaon Hallani did net materialize at
Mont refU. and that after this failure the con
spiracy assumed a most serious shape. The
iiiiuuiiiF of i his climax of the plot could not
lie secured from the letters.
Confronted with Her IVrfldy.
Arniisl with these letters the father, accom
panied by a prominent attorney of this city,
took the first train to "St. Louis, where he in
tercepted the bridal conple an 1 confronted
the bride with the ditcuinenis in the case.
She nude no attempt a: denial, and beyond
shedding a few tear quiet Iy showed nn
particular emotion. The father insisted upon
the iinme "l ite separation of the bride and
groom, and nion her acr.vmcnt to an amicable
securcnifiit by the husband of a decree of
divorce. To this she consented without argu
ineiit. It was only when tha fat her demanded
the return to him of Ihu wedding presents
that they might be distributed among the
donors ttial she strongly demurred, and this
disagreement was speedily settled by his pay
ment to her of an ample cash con-ideration.

The informant in the affair was the usual
mutual friend. He is a lawyer at Ogdcns-
burg and bad loug been a companion of
Hallani. It appears from the evidence that
he had fceen a party to ttie plot up to the
time that the final suggestion bail bion made
but that there his conscience overcame him
and he went to the intimate friend of the
father liefore referred to, made a clean breast
of the whole thing and delivered the letters
