, , Beavep. Falls Vn., Fth. C4 A desper
ate figlit between police officials and thret
toughs, supposed to be burglars, took
place here last night. As a result two
men are dyint: and two others nre badly
wonnded. At aliout 8 o'clock Officers
Cornell niid Greene noticed three men try
ing to dispose of some razors on Fifth
Street. The two iKilicemen approached the
men and told them to consider them
selves under arrest. The desperadoes an
swered by pulling out self-cockinn revol
vers, whichthry bepau firing at the po
licemen. Ofticer Cornell fell on the pave
ment with a bullet through his groin, but
returned the fire at the retreating men.
A Ftiftilluile of Cold Lead.
In the meantime Ofiieer Greene opened
fire and at least a dozen shots were ex
changed. One of the desperadoes ran into
a restaurant, where one of his companions
had already sought safety. Officer Greene
followed and demnnded that he surrender,
and both burglars again opened fire on the
officer, and in some manner the lights
were extinguished. Greene managed tc
dodge three shots and succeeded in shoot
ing one man through" the mouth and the
other through the right breast. The men
then ran out of the restaurant and disap
peared. A rrinjj Rurplar Captured.
By this time a large crowd gathered on
the street, and the burglar who began the
shooting was captured. Twenty minutes
later the police were notified that a man
was dying on a doorstep on Kiehth avenue.
The dying man was found to be one of the
men who opened fire on the officer in the
restaurant. He was taken to the engine
house, but refused to divulge his name.
The doc-tor says he cannot recover. The
man arrested was shot through the arm
and wrist. The man who was shot through
the mouth and who is the worst injured
has not Wen found, and is supposed tc
have fallen somewhere near the scene 01
Warned the l'olice of Danger.
Officer Cornell who was shot in the
groin is not dangerously injured and will
probably recover. The three men came
here a day or two ago and are supiwmed tc
hail from Pittsburg, hut it is Wlieved that
they are the same gang who have been
robbing sttires at Xiles. O. All were
heavily armed ami ju-t before the attempt
to arrest them they sent wonl to the polict
that the first man whir tried it would be
shot down. How well they carried out
their threat is shown by their subsequent
acts. The bravery shown by the two of'
ficers is unparalelled in the police history
of this town.
WHAT ARE WE COMING TO!
Here Are a Couple or Male Lovers, and
ST. ll is, Feb. -.'4. -The suicide of Tr.
Breedlove (suggestive name) in this city
yesterday, coming after the murder of
Freda Ward by Alice Mitchell, suggests
the existence of a new psychological prob
lem. The doctor shot himself in the hraiu
with a pistol, and in the same room not
ten feet from the suicide stood Isaac .Tu.l
son, teacher in the high school of St. Iouis,
the man for whose love he committed the
A Case of Unnatural l.ove.
Breedlove reached this city last Monday,
and was to leave yesterday in company
with Mr. Judson. but missed the train.
Judson returned to Breedlove's room and
found a letter lying on the dressing table
addressed to himself. He was in the act
of reading it when he was startled by the
report of a revolver, and Breedlove drop
ped mortally wounded. The letter which
was addressed to Judson reveals a peculiai
case of unnatural love between men. It i.
endearing in tone and suggestive in char
acter, and refers to sinful acttions on tlx
part of the suicide and Judson. He says
he finds it impossible to live without Jud
son and rather than be separated Iron)
him he ends his life.

ST. Locis, Feb. !i4. A sensation was
caused in East St. Louis Monday even
ing by the arrest of Kev. J. M. Laird, of
Gillespie, Macoupin county, on a charge
of attempted blackmail preferred by Mr.
Frank S. Bowman, the largest land ownei
and probably the wealthiest man in East
St. Louis. Mr. Bowman received two let
ters from Kev. Mr. Laird charging him
with undue intimacy with Mrs. Laird and
offering to compromise the offence on pay
ment of $1,000 iu cash.
Ills Reverence' Juntifiratiun.
Rev." Mr. Laird acknowledges writing
the letters, and declares that the intimacy
has been going on for some time. He at
tempts to justify his demand for money on
the ground that he is a poor man and
deemed that (l.OtX) would palliate the
crime to a certain extent, besides it would
tench Mr. Bowman a useful lesson.

AN INTEF'.NATIONAL ROMANCE.
Marriage and Repentance Followed
Thirty Years Later by Ilemarriage.
Bkiihiepoki, Conn., Feb. 24.--Emma
Hornblower t.nd William Gate lived on
the bank of the Thames in England thirty
years ago, and fell madly in love with each
other. A marriage resulted and every
thing went along smoothly for a year,
when each discovered that the union had
been too hasty, and the love they had once
felt had burned out. They quietly sepa
rated and agre.-d that each should act as
they thought best and as though they had
never been ma Tied.
l'ereaved of Their New Partner.
Gate went tc New York, where he mar
ried and soon established himself as a
builder and contractor. His wealth grew,
and at present lie is said to be iu comforta
ble circumstan 'es. His former wife also
emigrated and also married. Pneumonia
recently claimed Emma's husband, and
Gate's wife al -o succumbed to the same
malady. On Tuesday morning of last
week fate directed that both should take
the same train for Boston. They met and
began comparing their lives since they
parted on the banks of the Thames.
On with The Old l.ove Again.
The old love revived and before the train
had reached S-tanil'ord they had pledged
their troth ag.in, and determined that
they would gt t oft the train at the next
stopping place, irocure a license, and seek
a clergyman. The next station was this
city, and the two sought Town Clerk

and were directed to the liev. .1. Emery,

THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT.
Education Rill for Ireland Introduced
That Suits Nohody.
LonikiX, Feb. 4. Three bills have been
introduced in j arliament so far dealing
with reforms t.vo for Ireland and one
for England. T.'ie last one is a bill to
enable English county councils to buy
land to sell or rei t to rural laborers. The
second Irish bill ;s an education bill, partly
compulsory. Tin bill requires attendance
at school from he ages of 6 to 14. It is
made illegal to employ children under 11
years of age, and from 11 to 14 employment
is illegal unless t le children can produce a
certificate that tl ey have attended school.
Wherever school fees have not exceeded
6 shillings a year they are abolished alto
gether. The salaries of school teachers
are increased and a capital sum of i.'tW,XHi
given for a school teachers' pension fund.
The bill received unfavorable criticism
both from Irisl , Tory and Gladstone
speakers. T. W. Kussell, the Conserva
tive leader from 1 yrone.objected to it, and
the Nationalists opposed it on the ground
that it made no pi ovision for technical ed
ucation lierre for Vee President.
Minneapolis, F-sb. 24 There is a deal

now of Minnesota. Pierce has beeu for
fears a resident of the northwest, aud
stauds well with the people.

A Iieporton Salt and Tin Plat Draw
backs Capital City Notes.
Washington-, Feb. 24. The question
whether the tariff bills or the silver bill
shall be disposed of in the house first has
been the subject of much discussion
among the Democrats. The silver men,
it is said, will not oppose the giving of the
precedence to the tariff measure, provided
too much time is not occupied, and that
the tariff is not used as a means of side
tracking the silver bill. The tariff men
claim that no such idea is entertained by
them, and an easy and early settlement of
the conflicting claims of tariff and silver
is looked for.
Bland's Bill Must Bide Its Time.
It is quite probable that the free silver
bill will come before the house immedi
ately after the passage of the wool bill,
which Springer has reported from the ways
and means committee. Speaker Crisp was
unable to reach the capital yesterday, and
no meeting of the committee on rules will
le held until his return. The majority of
the committee is opposed to pushing the
silver question ahead of the tariff. What
ever course is adopted will be decided by
the vote of the three Democratic members
of the committee on rules. They will not
allow the Bepublicans on the committee
to give the decisive votes through division
in the Democratic ranks.
Three Weeks on Free Wool.
The expectation of the members of the
committee on rules is that general debate
on the free wool measure will run alot g
for two or three weeks, and that after a
short debate under the five-minute rule it
will pass. The. tariff issue having thus
been made, the committee will report a
rule for the consideration of the silver
bill. If the opponents of free coinage at
tempt to prevent a vote by filibustering
the committee on rules will bring in a
special order providing for a vote at a giv
en time, and Speaker Crisp, with his sym
pathy for free coinage, would enforce the
order iu such a way as to put a stop to
Bynmn will not Obstruct.
Bland, the champion of the bill, says
that it will undoubtedly pass the house by
a clear majority, but does not give the
figures. Hynum of Indiana has aband
oned his intention to move postponement
of the measure until Dtcember. The local
feeling in Indiana is in favor of free coin
age, and Pynum is disposed to respect it
sufficiently to vote for immediate consid
eration and the passage of a free coinage
bill. His estimate of the opposition in
both parties is 1.10 votes, which would
leave 1S2 in favor of free coinage. It will
not be surprising, however, if there are
sixteen more members who are opposed to
action at this time and will so vote.
Prospects iu the Senate.
Those who fear that a free coinage bill
will pass the house are discussing the
probability of its passage by the senate.
The Keptiblicun vote for free coinage wfttT
prolialily te considerably narrowed in com
parisou with the vote of last winter. The
Republican votes which are considered sure
for free coinage are those of Cameron of
Pennsylvania, Dubois and Shoupof Idaho,
Jones and Stewatt of yevada. Mitchell of
Oregon. Power and Sanders of Montana,
Stanford of California, Teller and Wolcott
of Colorado eleven in all. This leaves
thirty-eight Republicans opposed to fne
The Democrats who oppose free coinage
are Blmlgett of New Jersey, Brice of
Ohio, Carlisle of Kentucky, Gray of Del
aware. McPherson of New Jersey, Pal
mer of Illinois, and Vilas of Wisconsin
seven in all. This does not include Sena
tor Hill, of New York, w hose position no
body pretends to know, nor Gorman of
Maryland, who wou'd like to see the ques
tion thrust aside, but will probably vote
for free coinage. The seven Democrats
who are sure to oppose the bill are'enough
with thirty-eight Republicans to defeat it
by a majority of two.
TIN AND SALT DRAWBACKS.
The Amount Paid in One Year Reported
to the House.
Washington, Feb. 24 The acting sec
retary of the treasury sent to the house
yesterday in reply to a resolution a state
nieut of all drawbacks paid by the govern
ment on tin plate, salt used for curing
fish and salt imported and used by ex
porters of meat. The statement shows
that $1,771,610 iu drawbacks were allowed
on tin cans, etc., manufactured from im
ported tin plate exported from Oct. 1, ls1.(0
to Dec. 81, 1S1; that the amount of draw
back allowed on imported salt used in c r
ing exported meat from Oct. 1, lsiu to
Dee. 31, IS'Jl was fil2,2tll: the value of salt
withdrawn from warehouses for the pur
pose of curing fish on which the duty was
remitted is given at $102, S5C and aggregat
ed lir,M0.1.f)0i pounds.
Too Big a Job for Hiin.
The resolution also requested the names
of the parties, trusts, corporations and
firms to whom drawbacks were paid. In
the case of tin plate and salt used in cur
ing meats this information was furnished,
bat in the case of salt withdrawn fur u e
iu the fisheries the commissioner of cu--tms
stated that he was unable to furnish
the information without a re-examination
of the warehouse and bond accounts, and
to do so with his present limited force
would occupy a g.-eat deal of time and st

Washington-, Feb. 24. Private Dalzell

Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice.
And the doctors some of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
" stuff, " you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
That's what the World's
Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., does

If they don't do what their
makers say they'll do you
