John J. Moran, the young man who
was run over at Ottawa on Wednesday
evening, is still in a precarious condition,
and the doctors expect to amputate the in

condition is such that there is scarcely any
hope for his recovery. The case is par
ticularly touching, owing to the fact that
the young brakeman was soon to have
been married to a young lady from Chi
cago who is now present attending him
during his suffering.

It is related as an actual occurrence in
the outskirts of Vienna that a -wood
ranger in going through one of the
parks of his noble master noticed to
bacco smoke coming from a hollow sort
of a den under the stump of a big tree.
Naturally he c.ime to the conclusion that
it was the residence of some hnman be

on investigatit g. He accordingly yelled
down the cavil y, and in response he was
rather surprised to see an elderly person
in the garb of a country mechanic come
to the light of day.
"Who are yen?" he asked in astonish
ment. "I'm a bricklayer from jnst outside

A COMIXQ OCT AiTAIS AMONG THE SWELLS.
Discussed by Ex-Senator Ingalls
at Monona Lake.
"ALL PUBLIC MEN ABE C0WABDS,"
Because They Are Afraid to Express
Themselves on Burning Questions
Some Things He Dare Not Talk About
In Wisconsin Kansas Prohibition The
Anglo-Saxon Habit of "Getting There,"
Right or Wrong Accumulation of
Wealth The Ballot as a Weapon.
Madison, Wis., July 31. Ex Senator
John J. Ingalls spoke to 6,000 people at the
Monona Lake assembly yesterday, on the
problems of our second century. Ke
opened by saying that all men in public
station are cowards. This included the
speaker himself, when he was in pub ic
life. They are cowards, he said, in the
sense of not daring to express themselves
on public questions. In Wisconsin
the speaker would not dare
to say what he thought
about the immigration question, for
fear of offending the foreign vote. There
are 15,000,000 foreign-born citizens in the
United States. Many of them would make
very good foreigners, in the lecturer's
opinion. What we will do with them is
one of the problems of the century. Some
think that since they are obliged to live
h;re twenty-one years before voting the
naturalization laws ought to be modified.
Ingall's Style of Prohibition.
Another question about which the lec
turer cared to say little in Wisconsin wi
the prohibition question. This was true,
although he came from a prohibition
state and was a Prohibitionist in that he
never took a drink unless he wanted it.
Although Kansas has been a prohibition
state since 1SS0, there is no plate
that one can not freely obtain in
toxicating liquors, and in the cities the
bulk of the expenses of municipal govern
ment are pr.nl by taxes on the saloons in
the shape of fines. The immigrants of
l&iO were o the grandest race on the
earth. They were also the most arrogant
and rapacious. They believed in the right
of every man to the exercise of his own
powers and opinions. They fell first on
their knees, then on the aborigines, acd
afterward on the Chinese.
"The Anglo-Saxon's Name Is KII."
They also fell on the African, and their
dealings with that race forms one of the
bloodiest chapters in the history of thi
world. The Anglo-Saxon race, he main
tained, has not slways respected the rights
of others, but. it has always known what it
wanted. It has always got there. Its name
has lteen Kli and in compar
ison the names of all other
races have leen Dennis. After paying
an extended tribute to the marvelous ma
terial prosperity of the country under the
influence of the Anglo-Saxon, the speaker
said that this development made democ
racy possible. It is a mistake to suppose,
said he, that material advancement comes
from personal liberty. Freedom implies
not only the right to do a thing, but the
power to do it.
I Oar Political System a Failure?
The greatest increase of wealth iu the
United States -has been in the last thirty
years, and in spite of a great civil war.
Notwithstanding this, men today assert
that competition as a principle is a fiction.
For the first time some say that we shouid
have paternalism instead of individual
ism. We are threat ened with organized
robbery in the guise of justice. The speak
er admitted that all was not right, but it
seemed strange that at the opening of the
second century of our country's history
we should be met with the assertion that
our political system was a failure.
Great Change in Conditions.
It was a serious quest ion that confronted
ns. George Washington, when he died,
was the richest man of his time, and his
whole fortune footed up only fSOO.OOO
Now, many men have a larger income
than this; one man has a larger monthly
income. Social conditions have also
changed. We have 5.000,000 people who
do not lose the sensations of hunger from
one year's end to the other. There should
be an inquiry as to how these great
wrongs can be rectified.
The Tower of the Ballot.
If 31,000 men control half of the wealth
of this country what is to prevent one
man from getting control of all of it.
When used by those who feel a sense of
resentment and injustice, the ballot is the
most formidable weapon ever put in
hnman hands. There is an awakening to
this fact, and when it fully comes one
chapter of our nation's history will be
closed and another begun.
LIGHTNING STRIKES A CHURCH.
Nearly Every Member of the Congrega
Osborn, Ga.. July 31. While 200 people
were assembled at Lower High Tower
church, near here, on last Sunday, a stroke
of lightning fell near the church and
glancing from the ground where it struck,
proceeded to play havoc with the congre
gation. Two or three currents seemed to
enter the church and in an instant they
threw everything into confusion. Benches
were upset and the floor covered with
people variously affected by the stroke.
Some were knocked senseless, while oth
ers had their clothes and shoes torn from
their bodies. Many were burned and
streaks and marks were left on their bod
ies where the current touched them.
Only One Fatality, and That a Horse.
Nearly every one in the congregation
bears marks of lightning. Ex-State Sena
tor J. W. Foster was knocked senseless,
and on recovering found marks on his legs
and body. Strange to say, no one was
killed, though many were rendered tem
porarily unconscious. A horse which was
standing on the opposite side of the church
from where the lightning first struck was
Another Curious Lightning Freak.
Pleabaktville. X. J., July 31. While
the 5:30 p. m. Philadelphia express was
standing at the West Jersey station here
last evening daring a severe electrical
storm, a flash of lightning came in
through an open car window and struck a
lady passenger on the foot, without, how
ever, doing much damage.
The Alton Boycott Broken.
Chicago, July 81. The Chicago and
Grand Trunk railroad notified the Chicago
and Alton yesterday that it would no
longer participate in the boycott which
for almost six months the eastern
lines have carried on against the Alton.
The straggle for Grand Army business
from Chicago to Detroit, precipitated the
Grand Trunk's action.
CLEVER TRICK OF A DETECTIVE,
A Well Conceived and executed Plan to
Catch a Murderer. "
New Yokk, July 30. An account was
published a few days ago of the rescue
from drowning of an unknown man by
the crew of Pierre Lorillard's yacht Reva,
which lay at anchor in the bay back of
Belden's Point, City island. The man
was taken from the water and landed on
City island, after which he disappeared.
The drowning man was playing a clever
part as a detective to arrest a murderer.
who, he believed, was secreted on the
yacht without the knowledge or consent
of Mr. Lorillard. Thesupposed drowning
man was Roundsman William Petty, of
the Twenty-first precinct. For some days
he had suspected that Andrew Williams,
alleged murderer in the Hobbs ease, was
on the yacht.
Petty Concludes to Go Fishing.
Ward Detective McCarthy, of the Twen
ty-first precinct, had visited the yacht on
July 19, the Sunday previous to Rounds
man Petty s adventure. The steward told
him that Williams had asked for work a
few days before. He admitted . that Will
iams was his friend. Not satisfied with
McCarthy's report Captain Ryan ordered
Roundsman Petty on the case. Petty
knew there was no use trying to board
the yacht as an officer, so he resorted to
strategy. He put on an old gray suit and
a hat the worse for wear. He equipped
nimsen witn nsning tackle and went to
City island. Then he hired a boat and
rowed out into the bay near the anchored
But His Man Was Not on Board.
In full view of the people on the yacht
he dropped an oar overboard. On attempt
ing to reach it his boat lurched, throwing
mm into the water. Petty screamed with
well-simulated fright and disappeared un
der the water, lie noticed a boat being
lowered from the yacht. As he was ap
parently coming up the third time, and
was floating away with the tide, he was
seized and dragged into the boat.
nue seemingly unconscious he was
very wide awake and was observ
ing everything that "occurred. The
boat was rowed round the yacht and
everybody aboard rushed to the rail to
view the rescued man. The boat lay
longside the vessel for some time, until
Petty was convinced the murdered Will
iams was not aboard. He then asked to
be put ashore.
Engineer Snfl'catel In a Tunnel.
Portland, Ore., July 31. Engineer
Jack Rocheford, of the through express
south-bound, met death in an unusual
manner in tunnel No. 14, sixteen
miles south of Ashland, Wednesday. Two
engines are required totake the train over
the Siskiyou. Rocheford had the front
engine. When the train was nearly
through the tuunel the coupling between,
the mail anil express cars broke. Twenty
minutes were consumed iu making a new
coupling. The smoke and gas from the
second engine blew directly into the cab of
the one ahead, suffocating the engineer
and fireman. When the train backed out
the engineer was found alongside tlie
track dead with his arm rut off. The
fireman was unconscious, but was re

"Caprice or I lie VaiNlmrg Terror."
New Your. .Inly 31. Benedict Swan, the
"Vailsburg Terror," has been committed to
jail at Vailsburg, N. J., in default of
bohds to keep the peace. Swan was drunk
Sunday, and appeared on the streets with
a loaded shot-gun. Meeting a Mr. Wer
ner he ordered him to take a seat on a rail
