MAN whose career
I us been likened to
Edward H Ruloff,
was banged at
h i up hamton, N.
Y . on the Ititu of
May, 1871. Dip
ram wan on of
note In many way.
He bad murdered
bis wlfa and child
and t w o of hit
wife', relatirea In
N. Y., more than twenty year, before, and
bad been srntnl to be hanged, but had
escaped, and for half a lifetime led the life of
a skulWn criminal. Finally, after numer
ous desperate ciiiiee, lie committed a murder
that drew In tn int. the meshes of tbe law in
Broome county, adjoining the county where
he had cmmi".' 1 Lis first known murder,
and, by a singular circumstance, was Identi
fled by a ju'Ilto who had seen him at the bar
in Ithaca BaTBg laforo This identification
placed bim under grove suspicion, and be
wan guarded and watched until evidence
could be secured to punish him.
The crime for winch Ruloff was banged
sas the uiurdnr f F A. Mu ick, a clerk in
Ibe dry goods store of D. M. ft E. O. Hal
lock, of Hinghamton. The store was enter
eU one night in August, IsTII, by three men,
and aUrick and a companion clerk attackcxl
them. The burglars were Intoxicated and
tbe clerks were getting the better of thorn,
when one burglar drew a pistol and shot Mir
Ink deud. Then the three left the store with
out plunder, ami attempted toescape in a row
boat ou the Chenango river that ran near the)
tor. Two bodies were afterward found in
the river that proved to be those of well
known New York burglars, Albert Jarvls
and William T. Dexter. Tbe surviving clerk
fare the alarm, and pickets were at once
thrown annnid the town. Tho watch was
kept up for two days and nights, and on the
second night a man was seen leaving
the town along tho Erie railroad track
towards New York. He could give
oo satisfactory account of himself and
was taken before the coroner's Jnry. Be
claimed to be innocent, and explained hts situa
tion by m ing thut he had been pnt off from
an Erie train at a place west of Buighmmton
and was "ins: to New York, where ho lived.
While he was under examination Judge Bal
eom, of tli' supreme court, happened to look
In and be recognised Ruloff and accused him
to his face of Ins old Crimea. However, as
bars was no evidence to bold bim on the
new cane M was permitted to leave the jury
room. In a short time Judge Bulcom's dis
covery was current gossip on the street, and
an old resident of the county, A. C. Math
ews, secured a buggy and some assistance and
started to bunt bim up. He was overtaken
five miles from town going toward New
York. He bad made the dutaiic in less than
The escaped burglars had in their flight
left behind a shoe made for a deformed foot.
and tbe fugitivo was compelled to exhibit his
foot, which proved to be deformed in the ex
act place indicated by the shoe. On Ibis clew
be was taken hack and placed in Jail. Several
very straight clews were found associating
Ruloff with tbe men who had been drowned
from tbe boat In tho Chenango and again
connecting these men with the burglary and
murder The surviving clerk. Burrows, was
able to identify the statures of tbe three men.
and Ruloff answered to his description of one
of them, and that, too, as tbe one who fired
the fatal sh 4 Ruloff was soon indicted, and
It Was found that he bad a criminal record in
New York city and was tbe associate and
counsel of laiesraa and burglars. He was tried
and sentenced, but proem red a stay of pro
eedings and passed several months in Jaii
under sentence of death.
nrLOFr nt hts cell.
During the trial In Blnghamton KulufTs
strange history was brought to light, aud u
most remarkable one it proved to be. He
was born in the province of New Brunswick,
and in early life was a student and a reader.
He studied pharmacy for a tun and then
look up law. He became a master of crim
inal law and meantime practiced criminal
acta himself, with such results as to be con
fined in the peultentiarv for two yean. After
aSTTing bis time he made his way to Tomp
kins county, N Y.. before the days of rail
roads At first he was a cannier, and finally
returned to pharmacy and taught school. All
of his work was creditably done.
He married one of bts pupils much against
the wishes of her relatives, and after nmrnago
began la abuse her. Finally he removed to
tbe village of Lansing, near Itliacn. and here
be practiced medicine Iu a short time two
of his patient died In convulsions. They
were the wife and child of his wife's cousin,
and there win suspicions of poison In tbe
minds of the relntives of the deceased. One
morning the so called doctor liorrowed a wag
on from a neighbor to remove a heavy box
from Ins home to a place some distance off.
Tbe neigh Ixirs helped load the box. Ruloff
drove awny and was gone two davs, and re
turned with an empty box. Mean
while his wife and child had dis
appeared. When questioned the husband
and father invented several trivial stories
about bis family's absence and offered to con
duct her relatives to their abiding place. Fi-neJIyaeommift-t.cRll'd
him to account, gave
bim Uiuu. and be fled the country 8ut
quirri h- Imni down dud tried for
the abdii'-tii ii of his wife and child. Hespent
ten years In Auburn prison, where he be
came a noted baak worm, and on the expira
tion of ins sentence of ten years, which was
in 11.V1. U" returned to Ithaca. He was ar
rested and placed on trial for murder, and
wan found -u.im and sentenced to be hanged.
He succeeded in escaping Jail, and was u fugi
tive for Chi u- years, when be voluntarily sur
rendered himself , secured a new trial and was
acquitted. Now the bodies of the kinsfolk of
bis wife were exhumed aud analyzed, and
From the last disappearance, in I WW, to
1170, Ruloff seems to have spout much time
in New York, lie was much of a student
and he Inspired tb.sM about btn with aa
idea of hu ability and learning. His pur
poses of robbery were to live on the plunder
and coutinue bis studies.
Ou the appeal of bis case for the murder of
tbe clerk, Mm-k, Ruloff addressed the court
aud described the midnight melee iu the
store. He churned that owe of the dead bur
glars had fired the fatal shot and had done it
in self defense when his own life was in dan
ger, hence It was not murder and he (Ruloff)
was not an accessory to a murder.
While In Jail at Biughauitou the prisoner
talked a great deal about a theory of lan
guages, and claimed to be possessed of a key
showing languages to be related and trace
able to a single source. Before bis execution
he sent a manuscript to Professor Taylor
Lewis, setting forth what he claimed to be
wonderful philological discoveries, but his
work was pronounced by experts to be valne-

Said an old republican the other day to
a young republican: "I am getting tired
of the cry of tariff: it is becoming eo
lirelv too skew." But the conundrum
seems to be, what will the republican
party do for a campaign cry? Will the
"bloody shirt" have to stand alone?

Having always been independent in

no person should be so prejudiced as not
to be willing to read both sides of all
political questions. However, I now
feel as if forbearance bad ceased to be a
virtue, and that farmers should shut
down on all papers that defend a "high
protective war tariff."

Geo. Hoey's great successful comedy
"Keep It Dark," is to be presented at
Harper's theatre tonight. Read what the
Chicago Journal says about it and then
go and enjoy it:
1 Keep it Dark," George Hoty's musi
cal comedy, received its first production
on tbe south side last evening at the Peo
ple's theatre. It is different from the
Hoyt class of pieces, being more of a
comedy with a semblance to a plot.
There are some bright and telling lines in
It. and the action is brisk and the fun
bristling and clean. W. T Bryant,
eccentric comedian, as the inventor of a
liver pad. was well received, as was also
Lizzie Richmond as a thoroughly Ameri
can actress. J. J. Quintan was very
good as an ex-magician, and Blanch Sher
wood, a bright little souhrette, won favor
for her acting, singing and dancing.
On Friday evening Miss Kate Castle
ton is to appeal in "A Paper Doll."
Tbe comedy is much better than most
of the light pieces presented of late for
the amusement of the tbeatre-going pub
lic, and in tbe hands of Miss Kate Castle
ton end an exceptionally good company,
is made especially pleasing. There is
enough plot tn "A Paper Doll" to hold
the interest of the audience throughout
the play, and it is so arranged as to give
Miss Castleton full opportunity for tbe
display or her versatile tnlcnt She is
pretty and artistic, and becomes a popu
lar favorite from the start. Syracuse

The Chicago Herald has tbe following
concerning Mr. O. .1. Dimick's Chicago
real estate transactions.
A large sale of real estate is reported
to be under contract, tbe amount of tbe
deal being $225,000. The property dis
posed of is a lot owned by O..I. Dimick.of
Kock Island, on the northeast corner of
Fourth avenue and Van Buren street,
runniog east on Van Buren street to
Dearborn, and having a fifty foot front
age on Van Baron, twenty-five on Dear
born, and 125 on Fourth avenue. This
makes an L shaped lot, and is in a local
ity fast becoming extremely valuable
Mr. Dimick has been for a long time
anxious to sell this property, but put his
figures so high that buyers have until
lately been scared off. The price, 225.-
000, is considered cheap, considering the
rapid advance of realty values in that
locality. Tbe name of tbe purchaser is
not known, hut it is said to he an eastern
party . A. B. Mead, of Mead & Co , had
the property in his hands.

an amicable understanding. There are
eight children by his first wife in Han

THAT COPPER MINE SWINDLE.
The Electrical Coiupnuies Want Free
The electric companies in the United
States want copper ingots . bars, plates,
rods and wires placed on the free list.
At the last public hearing of the com
mittee of ways and means n tariff ques
tions Mr. George M. Ph.lps, of New
York, representing the N w York Na
tional Electrical Lighting association,
urged that the copper i lines of the
United States arc the large x and finest
in tho world; that copper can be pro
duced more cheaply here than anywhere
else, and that prices am artiii.ially main
tained within the Ikounilarif ;of the coun
try by a combination of tin mine own
ers, which nolod y enn denj .
The duty on copper in any of the
forms above hii-iiii.hh-iI is four cents a
pound. It is acini, us tiling that while
ens i sport copper in III tn piantities to
Europe, tho price is alwa s higher in
this country. Tin- 1'alumr and Hecla
mine in Michigan has paid i s sharehold
ers over $30,000,000 divider is on a capi
tal of $2,500,000 etooe 1879. Therefore,
these cannot require any pr toattoaV
The existence of a trust it almost self
evident. Copper can be r.iised and re
fined at the Lake Superio - mines at a
cost not exceeding four cent ..
It can be landed in New York city free
at 0 cents. Yet the quotat on for it in
the New York Metal Kxrhaiifre on Jan.
16, 1890, was 14, cents a pound. On
the same day the price ol copper in
London was 50 per ton, or approxi
matcly 11 cents a pound. So that,
after paying costs.. f freigl.t and insu
rance to London, the mini owners of
this country were still able to sell it
there 3y cents a pound chea icr than in
New York. It only needs t lie pointed
out that this 4 cents differential or tin re
abouts has prevailed against liis country
since 1ST9, and that 4 cents a pound i
the amount of the duty, to tee that the
American consumer has to p.iy the mine
owner this amount more tli .n the for
eigner. No wonder the foreigner can
undersell us in outside mark. t-!

The Dry Goods Chronicle has inter
viewed a number of silk mere hunts and
manufacturers on the subj.vt of the pro
posed duty on raw silk, intended to en
able the American silk worm o compete
with the pauper silk worms o ' Italy and
China. Mr. Stocker, of thi- firm of
Stocker & (J waiter, says that the whole
production of raw silk in this country
does not exceed 900 pounds. One hun
dred and fifty pounds is produced bv the
state board for silk culture in I .ilifornia.
"To kill our present flotirishirg silk in
dustry for the sake of being able to raise
a quantity of raw material ton years
hence," says Mr. Stocker, "is a policy
that will never succeed in this country."
This means, we suppose, tii tt the bill
will not pass, because it has leen found
in other parallel cases that lulling one
industry by means of a duty o i raw ma
terials in order to promote another in
dustry has succeeded very wel I, Efforts
to accomplish similar results aie making
now in Washington city, and the ques
tion whether they will succeed or not de-
