"It is a protective tariff. No d-.mo

QriXCT. Ills., Oct. 0. Man'a perfidy
and woman's weakness, a broken mar
riage en.geineiit, and a xuit for betray
al, culminated in a shooting affray in
this city S.t'uril.-iy afternoon, as a result
nf which Daniel G. Price is dead and Miss
Lillie Booth wan aeut niouning to a bed of
pain with a ballet bole throuith her
body. Daniel Price aud bia brother Sey
mour were walking on the street when
Miss Booth slipped up behind them with
an uly "bulldog" revolver in her hand.
Before any one could stop her aba placed
the muzz e within a foot of Dan Price's
back and pulled the trigger. Price ran
into Lake's wall-paper store, but reap
peared a moment later with a revolver
aud fired at bia slayer, the bullet going
in at tbe buck and parsing entirely
through her body. Price died a few miu
ntes later, while Miss Booth's wound was
dressed and she was placed under arrest
in the hospital to which she was taken.
The Parties to the Tragedy.
The parties to the ahootiug belong to
some ot the wealthiest aud best-known
families in Adams county, and the affair
has created a tremendousaensation. Misa
Booth is about 2 years of age, wealthy,
refined, well-educated, of prepossessing
appearance, and previous to the scandal
lending to the tragedy was one of the
belles of her neighborhood. She is the
daughter of the late William Booth, one
of the wealthy farmers of the county. He
died a few months ago of a broken heart,
caused by his daughter's betrayal. Daniel
G. Price was the son of another promi
nent and wealthy farmer, neighbor of
Mr. Booth. He was about 3j years old,
goad looking, and popular.
I'aaalon and Its Consequence.
Daniel Price and Lillie B iot i were lov
prs for years and were engaged to Iw mar
ried. A little over a year nt Pricj wont
to Salina, Kan., where he established a
real estate and loan office. Shortly after
his departure Mias Booth con tided to her
parents thut Price was the father of her
unborn child. Effort were made to in
duce Price to marr? the girl, but this he
refused. Finally be, agreed that if the
child hIiouM I born after tbe 1st of
March lat he would accept ita paternity.
Miaa Booth went to Montana, where tbe
child was boru the laat day of February,
six hours before midnight.
Very Particular as to Time.
Price then refused to have anything
further to do with Misa Booth. She went
to Salina two months ago and com
menced suit for bastardy. All tbe evi
dence was heard there. No attempt was
made to convict Miss Booth of iutimacy
with any other man, but ou the strength
of the let of March agreement tbe jury
'acquitted him, although tbe child was
born only six hours before the date when
Price said he would ac pt its paternity.
Miss Booth then returned to her home in
this county, where she remained until she
st arted on her murderous mission. Price
came to (juincy a few days ago, aud hear
ing that he waa here Miss Kooth also
came to the city, and followed her victim
until she got an opportunity shoot htm.
Did He Die with a Lie on Hla Lips?
About an boar before his death Price
made an ante-mortem statement, saying:
"I am dying, and I want to say now that
I did not wrong tbe girl." Just before be
died Price turned to bis sister, who had
been summoned and 'was standing by his
bedside, and said: "I am very near my
Maker; tell mother I did not wrong tbe
girl." Public yiupjiiliy is now almost
entirely with Miss Booth. No one believes
Price's dying words, bis object, it is sup
posed, being to comfort his mo'ber.
Later Mlaa Booth Dead.
The sensational double ahootiug Satur
day and the death of Dan Price was fol
lowed yesterday by the death of Lillie E.
Booth. Miss Booth was worth not less
than t30,OU0 in her own name.
YOUTHKUL, BUT DIABOLICAL.
A Massachusetts Boy Who Had Better
Never Been Born.
Boston. Oct. SO Frank Valois, a r
year-old K ixbury boy, lias given evidences
recently of astonishing depravity. His
chief pleasure seems to consist in tortur
ing bis playmates. Several new houses
are being built in tbe vicinity of bis home
and a great many plumbers' furnaces are
around. Going to these the boy would
put a small stick in tbe glowing coals,
and when it began to blaze he would
thrust it with a quick movement into the
face of any child standing near by, his
aim being to put it, if possible, in the
month of his victim.

a number of thefts have been traced to
the little boy, and nothing apparently
can be done to atop him. Tbe boy is at

Whether Hall is at the head of the organ

LoxooN. Oct. SO. Balfour poke at
Newcastle Saturday and severely at
tacked Morley. He said tbat Morley had
criticised him for absenting himself from
Ireland; but when Morley was Irish secre
tary a period of six months he (Morley)
had spent only five days in Ireland. Hal
four denied that any principle of law of
common sense waa violated by the ap
pointment of Shannon as resident magis
trate at Tipperary. During the Belfast
riols resident magistrates appointed by
Morley were reatedly called upon to ad
judicate cases in which tbey h.id just
previously acted in an executive capacity.
The evidence in regard to the Tipperary
riot was, as usual in such cases, conflict
ing.but experience justified him in believ
ing the reports made by the responsible
Morley Not a Good Witness.
Col. Caddell was erfectly justified in
causing the mob to move o-.i. The police
used no more force than was necessary
to prevent ingress to the court house. It
is quite impossible to refrain from some
use of force on such occasions. Morley
was too much carried away by political
passion to be an impartial narrator. Bal
four was certain that all Englishmen
would feel that they would rather have
acted Col Caddeil's part in the drama
than Morley's. L-t the people compare
Morley's statement with the ascertained
facts, and then say whether they cared
to trust the interests of tbe Irish loyal
minority to the party with which Morley
A Keferenoe to Gladstone.
He reminded his hearers tbat in 1SSS, at
the time of the Ennis riots, Gladstone
made a statement in reference to those
troubles which afterwards turned out to
be incorrect. Now Morley had made
statements in regard to the Tipperary af
fair which were destroyed by the ofBoial
reports. Y'et neither Gladstone nor Mor
ley had been honest enough to admit their
error, or to make any apology for their
RUSSIA FOR RUSSIANS.
The Crar Not In Love with Subjects Who
Are Too Germau.
IjOMmis, Oct. jo. Ia the Baltic prov
inces of tho Russian empire the czar's offi
cers are making every effort to stamp out
the German sentiment and substitute
Russian for German education, both sec
ular and religious. The latest move is to
deprive the Lutheran pastors of their sti
pends, on the pretence that some of them
are not sufficiently loyal, throw ing the
pastors for support entirely on the con
tribufions of their fbs.-ks, and insuring
the abandonment of many of the poorer
and more remote churches, where the
congregations would be unwilling to sup
port a minister among them.
Crusade on the German Langnafr.
The (Ji riiiau language is a'so prohibited
on public signs over shops, and its teach

eran pastor named Grimm, having been
twice convicted of reflecting on the ortho
dox religion in his sermons, and now con
verted a third time, has been sentenced to
deportation for an indefinite period to Si

London, Oct. 20. The Russian govcu
ment is sending workmen to various coun
tries to obtain situations and pick up all
the information tbey can that may lie
useful to Russian nuinufact urers and ex
porters. The Welah tin-plate makers
have taken alarm at this, and have given
warning that if tbe secrets of their trade
are discovered in this way and made use
of by the Rusaiaus they will import no
more sheet-iron from ' Russia, and will

London, Oct. 20. The parliamentary
campaign at Eccl.-a is a very lively one.
A leading featnre of tbe contest is the
display of pictorial banners. The Con

"The Patriot Stowaway." It represents
O'Brien and Dillon fleeing from Ireland.
Tbey are pictured as Mowaways. huddled

POLITICS IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Thicker to the Square root Than Ever
Charleston, S. C. Oct. 20. The situa
tion in South Cnrolina from a political
standpoint is decidedly peculiar.. Every
body is talking politics and the people are
wrought up to a high pitch of excite
ment. The excitement is confined to no
class nor to any particular section ot the
state. It is general t broughout the whole
state and affects both races. The few
days now remaiuing before tbe general
election in November bid fair to be days
well tilled with bitterness and even blood
shed. Tbe leaders of tbe opposition fac
tions are hard at work and neither side
will leave a single stone unturned to in
sure victory. There are uiany who regret
tbat such a state of tilings has come, but
on the other baud there are others who
welcome the breaking of old party lines.
Regarding the Negro Vole.
All recognize the fact that the negro
vote will lie used and many admit that, .the
negro will be the deciding factor in tbe
fight between the whites. A great many
bewail this recognition of the negro's
right to vote, and declare that the result
will be that in tbe next four years tbe
blacks will have control of the state. The
other aide retort that it is the part of wis
dom to recognize the fact that tbe negro
vote cannot be suppressed much longer,
and to take charge of it now and get con
trol of it. They say that recognition of
the negro vote is but a question of time,
and that, too, of a Very short time, and
tbat if they did not use it their oppo
nents would usd it two years hence lo
eep themselves in ollic-i.
