Doku the Union think that by drawing
Bttcotion to the use of beer in this cam
pHign it can win tbe affection of tbe pro
hibitionists? Bkcacsk Mr. Cable doesn't permit any-,
body to indiscriminately slap bim on tbe
back, whether friend or foe. gives the
Moline Dii"ttch a fit of tbe blues.
"As an embryonic congressman. Cable
will never tide over the period of Gesta
tion, ' says tbe Moline lipntrh; but it
foreet that the period of Gestation is
nearing its last month.
'We tax you, we oppress yon, we de
prive you of a considerable share of your
cotufoin. but from the bottom of our
heart we love vou." This is the address
of the republican pnrty to the workmen,
says theUlica 0nrrtr.
The tTnfin is 81,'ain talkio" about Gest
and the appropriation bill. Gest had
about as much to do with the appropria
tion bill as hnd the paces on the floor of
the house. Goat and the appropriation
bill! The Unkm. editor is inadesperate
way for campaign arguments.
Thk opponents of Mr. Cl le say he is
too rich to be compelled to work for a
living. Tbey tNossy he didti't work long
enouph as a railroad manager to make
"ISimself noted in that wnv. Look at these
two statt'irenti: He is too rich to work
and he won't work h-omiee Be is rich.
The ripiitch. of Moline. says G ste
cured an appropriation for improvements
for the arsenal. That is not so, and that
paper knows it. It says be has secured
the viadud appropriation. That is not
so. Gest hast done everything that could
be done in his blundering way to oppose
the viaduct, and everything relating to it
Can the lhritrh not stumble upon a
grain of truth, even by accident?
Thk language that Mr. C. D Gordon
employed in speaking of his war record
was plain enough without being subject
to misconstruction by the Union. He
said his service in tbe war cost him his
health and nearly his life, and he has that
to reuret. This is somewhat different
from the record of candidate Campbell
whose "servict" cost him a wounded leg
by tbe accidental discharge of a gun,
when a thousand miles away from tbe
scene of actiou the nearest he ever got
The McKinleyites never tire in telling
the consumers that they are benefitted by
having the tariff taken off sugar. If they
are benefitted by havine tbe tariff taken
off sugar, why would they not be equally
benefitted by having the tariff removed
from everything else? Wouldn't a like
benefit arise by having it taken off bind
ing twine, dry goods, rlotbing, tin-plate,
and the hundreds of artu les that enter
Into daily use? What kind of a principle
is it that will benefit a man by giving
him free sugar and do him an injury by
giving him a free overcoat?
The Union states that Mr. Fred II ass
(aid before the city council that Mr. Gest
was "doing all that mortal nutn can do."
Mr. 1 1 ass never said so, and the
Union knows be never said and
never even thought It. When Mr.
Hass was explaining to tbe council
last spring that something should
be done in Washington about the post
office building, he was asked as to Mr.
Gest's usefulness In that respect, and he
answered that "Gest is doing what be
can, but we want some one to do some
thing." But the Union is always battled
when it touches the truth. If Mr. Gest
was doing all that mortal man could do
why should Mr. Hass ask for somebody

Secretary Rusk said last night that dur

not called to the attention of the cabinet

the cabinet members are concerned they

Washington: Citt, Oct. 15. The treas
ury department finds it very difficult to
enforce the law in regard to tbe importa
tion of nlieti laborers into the United
States. A few days ago the department
was informed that the Canadian Pacific
railway had imported a number of labor

pair its road lied, which for a distance of
ox miles runs through the state of Vers,

department could act the lalwrers, who
are employed by the year by the Canadian
I'acitlc railway, had completed their work
and returned to Canada.

A similar case along thu line of the
same railroad arose a short time since,
where a valuable man employed by the

died. His place was filled by n Canadian,
an old railroader familiar with the duties
of the po-ition. In this instance, how
ever, the charge was made that became

The President's Condolence.
As soon as the president had breakfast
ed yesterday he and Mrs. Harrison took
a carriage and paid a visit of condoleuce
to tbe family of tbe late Justice Miller.

mark of respect to the memory of the
dead jurist. The supreme court adjourned
until Monday as soon as It met yesterday
in respect to ihe tiiemory of the deceased
Justice Mlller'e Huccessor.
Washington- Citt, Oct. 15 Specula
tion as to the successor of Justice Miller
in the supreme court has already begun.
Senator Spoone-, Judge Gresham. Sen
ator Manderson, Attorney General Miller,
Senator Teller and ex-Solicitor General
Phillis, of Novth Carolina, are auggest
ed and discussed as likely to he considered.
It is generally believed that Spooner,
Gresham and Miller are the most likely
men for the place. The difficulty with
them is that none lives in the circuit cov

tM. LAWYER BILLING'S CASE.
The Iowa. Supreme Court Ieclares Him
Des Moines, Iowa. Oct. 15. The su
preme court yesterday reversed the judg
ment of the lower court in the case of the
State vs. M. E. Billinus, convicted of mur
dering W. H. Kiugsley, of Waverly. ThU
is the secoud time this case has been in
the supreme court and this is (s second
reversal. The decision of the urt yester
day will most certainly result in the dis
missal of the case and the discharge of
the defeudant from custody. The case is
one of the most famous in Iowa criminal
history. Billings and Kingsley were
leading lawyers of Waverly, the latter
being county attorney. They had their
oftioe together and Kingsley, who was
tingle man, boarded with Billings' fam
ily. The lieath of Ynons; Kingsley.
The suspicions of tbe husband were
roused that his wife and Kingsley were
too intimate. Billings flannel that sfter
much persuasion he obtained a full con
fession from his wife of her illicit inter
course with Kingsley. He confronted tbe
latter with this paper and sought to pro
cure from him pecuniary damages v-ith-out
the process of the courts. A igry
words were overheard and then two pia
tol st.ots and billings ran dowu stairs, de
claring that he had been shot by Kiugs
ley. The II le In lillllngs' Coat.
A hole was found through the back, of
Billings' coat and the bullet had Is-en
prevented from penetrating his bod) by
the suspender ring, while therj was a
slight wound in the flesh. Kingsley was
found dead with a pistol near his hand
from which two bullets had been tiled.
Billings was c-harued with the mur ler
and bis conviction was assured liecau.se
of the feeling against him, which wa il
lustrated by the judge when he said iu
sentencing him thai he was sorry ha
could not hang him.
The Sec 1 Trial.
The refusal of the tirit judge to grant a
change of venue secured Billings a second
trial before another judge. The jury con
victed him again, and the judge declared
that had he been on the jury he would
have ac'i'iitted him. Another appeal to
the supreme court was taken with the te
sult above stated.

PuovitiENCE, K. I., Oct. 15. Rev. Father
Halligan, pastor of St. Mary's Roman
Catholic church of Pawtucket, is using

Hugh Carroll, one of his parishioners, as
mayor. Father Halligan issued a sort t f
pronunciamento forbidding all Koma i
Catholics to take part in the exercises of
Sunday school day during cotton centen
ary week, on the ground that communi
cants iu the Romish church couid not,
rightfully participate with Protestants
in religious exercises.
Mayor Carroll's Offense.
Mayor Carroll, on this occasion, how
ever, considered his civil diry as para
mount to the request of his spiritual ad
viser, and carried out the part assigned
him on the programme. He delivered an
address on Sunday school d iv, and partic
ipated with Protestants in the exercises.
A notice signed by Father ll.illi.'au has

Couwm s, o , Oct. 15. The legislature
conveued i:i extra session yesterday at the
call of the governor, the - object thereof
being to correct the situation in the Cin
cinnati board of public works, which the
governor says ia a "bad lot." The gov
ernor's mess ig., which was read, is an ex
ceeding. y plain. spoken document, and
"roasts" loth the legislature and the

cities to choose their own servants, the
legislature created boards for Btich cities
in the choice of which the citizens had no
voice at all. nnd made umtters worse by

The Charge Against the Roar.l.
He charges the Cincinnati board with
trafficking llieir own vores, with forget
ting the principle of "honor among
thieves'' in the fierce strutg'e for looty,
and he indorses the remark of a "wise ob
server" that Citicttitiaii ".s cursed with a
lower tone in politic-' than afflicts any
other city in the Cnion. He advocates
"home rule" as a remedy for the evils
complained of. The house referred the
messuge to the judiciary comtnitt-'e. The
Republicans in the senate opposed t his dis
position of it and precipitated a long de
bate, but it was finally so referred.
Two Hills in the Senate.
After a recess both houses reassembled,
and two bills to abolish the Cincinnati
boards were offered in the senate. A n at
tempt to read them b,lh the third time
was antagonized by the Republicans, aud
four Democrats voted against the motion,

CnicACO, O.-t 15. HaVry A. Adams,
an ingenious and dangerous safe robber,
was arrested at daylight yesterday morn
ing just as he was removing (253 from the
big safe in the Hotel Wayne, at the cor
ner of Michigan and Wells street. The
story of bis remarkable exploit is both
sensational and dramatic. He came to
Chicago about ten days ago, registered
from Minneapolis and was assigned to
one of the best rooms in the hotel. He
loitered about the office a good deal and
after a lapse of a day or two made the ac
quaintance of a pleasant-faced young
stranger. Tbe two became chums.
Where He Made His Mistake.
Last Saturday Adams asked his friend
If he wanted to make money aud, receiv
ing a reply in the affirmative, cautiously
unfolded an ingenious plan to rob the
"We'll go down there together at
o'clock Tuesday morning, " he explained,
"nnd while yon keep watch I'll do the
"A 1 riuht," the chum assented.
The latter happened to tie a cousin of
the proprietor of the hotel, but Adams
did not know it. He told the story of the
plot to his cousin, wiio iu turn unfolded
it to Inspector Hubbard, at the Chicago
Knter the Expert ltnrglar.
At midnight Monday Officers Bell and
lliatt were secretly admitted to the hot.el
office and stowed away under a staircase.
They waited four hours for the burglar to
come down stairs, and as the clock in the
Northwestern tower struck 4 their pa
tience was rewarded by the sound of foot
steps on the stairs over their heads. A
moment later Adams was gliding silently
across the floor of the office. His hands
were empty and the officers began to won
der how e would proceed. The burglar
suddenly bent down before the safe,
seized the combination and began turning
it cautiously. He worked in this way for
nearly an hour when, the big doors sud
denly sw ung open.
Itojr He Did the Trick.
Eagerly thrusting his hand into the
money box Adn:a drew forth the prize
he was after, ?.. before he could stow it
away in his pockets the detectives had
sprung from llieir hiding placv and made
him prisoner. An examination of his
bands quickly revealed the secret of the
seemingly supernatural power which en
abled him to open a strange combination.
The nail of the right index finger was
pared so close to the quick as to produce a
wound from which blood flowed freely.
It whs through the medium of this pnin
ful and sensitive cut that be was enabled
to tell when the tumblers fell. As each
one dropp:Hl down the vibration through
the handle was communicated to the
finger by means of the bared quick, and
Adams instantly started to turn the sec
"Ain't 'o Paul Johnstone."
When he was taken to the Chicago
avenue police station he boasted a bit
about the success of his feat, and said he
could perform it on any safe in the city.
"I ain't no Paul Johnstone and I don't
need noliody's nut to feel," he said rather
proudly as a turnkey clanged the barrel
door in his fare. The police are of the
opinion that Mr. Adams will open no
more safes for many a day to come.
