striking instance of this occurred in 1876,

Washington Citt, Feb. 1C Senator
Teller left here Friday for Florida to be
gone for two or three weeks. His health
is a little better than it was a week ago,
hut he is badly in need of rest, and his
physician has urged him to go away. His
departure is regarded as proof that the
senator has become thoroughly convinced
that there is no prospect of silver legisla
tion at this session of congress, as he would
never leave the city while there was the
least hope of this subject coming up in the
Admiral l'orter'a Funeral.
Washington Citt, Feb. 16. The funer

his residence in this city at 2 o'clot k to

las, of St John's Episcopal chutci, offi
ciating. The deceased will be buried with
the highest naval honors. Commodore

rangements. There Will Be No Extra Session.
Washington Citt, Feb. 16. Se mtors
on both Bides of the chamber say ttat the
appropriations bills will become laws
before the 4th of March and that tiiere is
no longer any danger of an extra session.
They state, however, that it will be neces
sary to devote about all the time of the
session left to .the appropriation bills,
consequently no other legislation is possible.
WHK.g IS GIBSOiN .
The Alleged Dynamitard Net
To Be Found.
A. BEPOET THAT HE IS IN CHICAGO,
Hut No One Seems Able to Find His
Whereabouts The Whisky Trout The
ory of the Diabolism A Conspiracy in
Behalf of tne Shufeldt Distillery A
Foreshadowing of the Defense Where
the Accused Is Said to Have Obtained
Chicago, Feb. 16. A special from Peo
ria says: "Gioson lefi this city at 11 o'clock
Saturday night on a Rock Island train for
Chicago as near as can be learned. No
one saw him go, but several of his friends
are positive that he left the hotel and
started for the depot. It is now known
that Gibson bought fifty pounds of dyna
mite from A. B. Barnewalt some time
ago, and the druggist from whom the
arch plotter obtained the ingredients of
the deadly fluid found in his sachel in
Chicago has been discovered. Gibson
bought the different constituents separ
ately and mixed them himself.
Defended by Trust Magnates.
The whisky trust magnates. J. B.
Greenhut and Adolph Woolner, who are
at present in the city, say that they know
Mr. Gibson, the secretary of the trust to
be the victim of a conspiracy. They
claimed that they had enough evidence to
tdiow that there was a conspiracy against
Gibson, although not euough to show who
was the arch-conspirator.
An Imputation Against Shnfeldt.
They say that the Shufeldt non-trust
distillery has done less business in the last
six months than in any other similar j e-
rioi iu the last four years, while the sales
of the trust have very largely increased
since it organized under the Illinois law.
and that tiiere was no motive for the trust
to remove the Shufeldt distillery, but
plenty of motive for Shufeldt to injure
Points T"rjred Against DeWar.
DeWar, they say, has been a great
friend of one of the men in control of the
Shufeldt distillery; that the letters from
Gibson to DeWar can be explained on the
hypothesis that the latter had promised
to furnish the trust secretary with relia
ble information aa to the business of the
Shufeldt distillery; that the only one who
vouches for an infernal machine is De-
V ar; that DeWar is a machinist; that the
first man in possession of inflammable
fluid was De ar.
Custody of that Sachel.
It is further urged that after Gibson's
arrest his sachel was for four hours in
possession of the government officials and
was at the time unsealed and that DeWar
had access to to it at that time; that the
Btock found in Gibson's coat pocket was
not made over to De ar. but was in Mrs,
Gibson's name, and that Gibson carried it
at her request and that Gibson came to
Chicago on his way to Cleveland, where
his father-in-law was sick and likely to
die, and not in respouse to any letter from
DeWar. They deny positively that Gib
son has run away.
Said To Be in Chicago.
Secretary Gibson, of the whisky trust.
has not run away from Peoria, lie is
simply in Chicago. Where he is stopping is
not given out for general information, but
the commonly accepted idea is that he is
at the Auditorium, lie is certainly not
registered at that hotel, but it is possible
that he could be there and even the pro
prietors not know of it, and they say they

MAKFA, Tex., Feb 16. A band of Mexi
