It Plays a Part That Will Not Help the
Chicago, May 2. Mrs. Dr. Scudder
made an attempt Saturday to smuggle her
husband's overcoat out of the county jail
in a bundle of soiled linen. Dr. Spray has
found blood stains in the lining of one of
the pockets, in which it is claimed that
Dr. Scadder concealed the weapon with
which he is said to have killed his mother-in-law,
Mrs. Elizabeth P. Dunton. When
the jail officials attempted to examine the
bundle Mrs. Scudder fought like a tigress,
and they were obliged to restrain her by
force. The coat had been purposely left in
the prisoner's possession to see if any at
tempt would be made to destroy the evi

As to I'rotert ion ut Aliens l ikely To B
Debated in Ihe Senate.
Washington, May 2. A bill of inter
national importance is likely to be dis
c issed ia the senate this week. It is aimed
to make it possible for the United States!
to carry out its treaty obligations regard

acter. It really only makes it possible for
t ie United States to secure the trial of the
mob leaders, for as the trial will take
place in the same section of the country
a id often iu the very city where the nietn-
b-rs of the mob live, punishment is ex
Oriel n of the Proposed Law.
The bill is the result of the recommenda
ti n in the message of the president which
wis inspired by the New Orleans outlawry
wben the mob led by Parkinson and other
prominent ,ew Orleans citizens massacred
a lozen or so wretches alleged to be guilty
of murder, some of whom had just been ac
quitted by a jury also of New Orleans' best
ci izens, presumably. The principal difficul
ty that confronted the United States inits
di alings with the Italian government over
tbe incident was that the men concer lied
in the killiue of the Italians could not be
tr.ed in the United States courts, but only
in the courts of tie state of Louisiana.
Italy Files a Complaint.
The Italian goverment bitterly com-
pruned that this government was violat
ing its treaty agreement in not taking
into its own hands the punishment of
the culpable persons, bt-cretary Blaine
explained to Italy that punishment could

order to avoid in the future any difficulty
of this nature the bill referred to was
brought in by the committee on foreign
relations and it is probable that it will be
Debated the Matter in the House.
Apropos of this subject there was a spir
ited debate iu the bouse Saturday over the
proposition to reduce the president's emer
gency fund, out of which he paid Italy
$25,000 indemnity for the families of ,the
Italians murdered at New Orleans. Dis
cussion took place as to the right of the
prtsident to use this fund in this way.
Br-ckinridge of Kentucky said that he
wa-i glad that this international episode
bad been amicably settled, but he ques
tioned the right of the president to settle
questions of this kind without at least re
ferring the matter to congress, or at least
to the senate. He felt-that the precedent
was an unwise one, and he therefore criti
The Idea of Mr. Chfpman.
Chipman of Michigan submitted an
amendment providing that no portion of
the emergency fund should be used in the
paj inent of a claim brought by a foreign
nation. It was for the United States to
ma ntain its dignity as a nation, and the
pec iliarities of our form of government
should be respected by foreign nations.
The president had no right to set such a
present. McMillin said the president
assumed to take a fund which was never
exp sited to be used in the way it had been,
and he had no right to commit the govern
niei t to the theory that for riots or niob
biuginthe states the government of the
United States was liable. Hitt defended
QUITE AN ORDERLY AFFAIR.
An Orderly Mob Itreaks Opeu the Jail
Olderly and Orderly Hangs a Prisoner.
Nashville, May 2. The fact that Gov
ern! r Buchanan's soft words turned awny
wraih Friday night, and sent the mob
away did not prevent it coming back
Saturday afternoon, and lynching Eph
Gri?zard, brother of the negro who was
lynched Thursday, for the outrage at the
Bru:e house, ner Goodlettsville. The
mob Saturday afternoon had so trouble
at alL There was no guards, no governor,
adju tant general and nobody else.
A ad Nashville Is the State Capital.
There were only 200 men, armed with
gum and revolvers, who marched to the
jail in an orderly manner. Several men
moulted the iron fence and front and
drop led over inside. The lock of the door
had already been broken, and the doors
were pushed open. Jailer Willis met them,
and i o him tbe leader said: "We have come
for Eph Grizzard, and intend to have him."
Got Him Just Too Easy.
Ani they got him almost without pro
test; took him through the streets of Nash
ville the shortest route to the bridge over
the Cumberland, hanged him there and
filled bis body full of bullets Then the
mob permitted an inquest and the coroner
didn't: know who did it, after which the
mob went back to- Goodlettsville. There
were a number of negroes along, and they
took band in the fun.

A Oap Fifty Feet Wide.
At the point of the accident there is a
twenty - live - foot embankment, and
through it a stone culvert about eight feet
in diameter. It was insufficient to carry
the laige volume of water which collected
in the somewhat extensive basin on the
north side of the track, and the pressure
forced an opening alongside of the stone
work in the culvert. That once done a
gap fifty feet wide was soon washed out of
the embankment under the track.
Had to Swim for Their Lives.
When the train struck the washout the
engine passed over safely but the coaches
and mail car left the track, piling up over
the engine, and were smashed to pieces.
The mail car fell into the creek and the
occupants had to swim out. The fireman
was caught between the tender and cab
and crushed to death.

It struck the wrecked cars, knocking the
express engine down a thirty foot embank
ment and telescoping a number of cars.

where it is reported he has since died. His
fireman, H. Martin, was killed.

struck a drunken man named Wilson at
Dongola Saturday. He was hurled Into
the air high above the smokestack, and
when he landed on the ide of the track he
rolled down a steep embankment and was
picked up senseless and gasping for breath.
The doctor said he would die in .in hour,
but he soon revived and bowled for more
whisky, and declared himself worth a
dozen men. The doctors could not find a
broken bone in his bily.
Horrible Accident to an Old Man.
Ottawa, Ont., May 2. While an old
man named Calller, living at Greenville
bay, was engaged in boiling soap he acci
dentally fell into the boiling fluid. Al

LoKDOX, May 2. Though tbe recent
