of the Itutohery.
Cincinnati, S-it. Shortly after 1
'clock yesterday moniintr a silent but
ominous bntly of men rode into Covintrton
irom the vicinity of IiiU-penlence. Ky., ani
halted their horses at Seventeenth street.
The visitors immliereil fully 1 and were
well armed and disciplined. They had
nothing to say to the occupants of the sur
ronixlintc houses nor to the crowd which
soon Kathered at a respectable distance
from them. They apjicared to be waiting
for something, and it developed that they
were on the watch for Detective Joe Rich
and his prisoner, Arthur "Watson. Sheriff
O'Meara with six deputies, together with
the entire police force, were Kuar,liK the
Jail, and stout denials were made when
they were asked if Watson was within.
The Whole Population Awake.
Their answer wius correct, for Detective
Jtich with hi prisoner made a wide detour
and arrived in Covington through Cincin
nati at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The
mob of mountaineers remained at their
post all day and upon lenminp; of Wat
son's arrival leeame jcreatly excited, but
maintained a silence that was louder than
"words. The jail was guarded last night
and the whole population of Covintrton
Was on the streets awaiting developments.
An attempt to take Watson from the jail
vrould precipitate a bloody battle and those
who are well acquainted with the retntln
tors," said they were probably too smart to
attempt it, although the fact that they
were still in town and lmnded together
caused the officials much uneasiness.
The Crime and the Criminal.
The criminal for whom the lynchers were
on the warpath is Arthur Wntson. who, at
Independence, Ky., on Friday, brutally
murdered Amanda Cain, a girl of lfi, be
cause she would not Accept his attentions,
and immediately thereafter almost cut the
mother to pieces with the same knife he had
used on the daughter. "Watson's thirst for
blood and readiness to use his knife were
not displayed for the first time in the butch
cry of the girl and her mother. At the mo
ment he was doing that fiendish business he
was under bond to lie tried for attempting
to kill Rolx'rt Payne, whom he had savagely
shlsht d a few weeks In-fore in a quarrel. As
soon as he had committed the deed he fled,
and the lynchers went on his trail at once'
DETAILS OF THE DEVILTRY.
The Girl Fatally Wounded w ith One Thrust
Attack on the Mother.
Ldjter details only bring out the lxldor
the fellow's brutality and devilishness in
the murder of the poor girl who luul the
ipisfortime to become the object of his pas
sions. She was quite conscious almost to the mo
ment she died, and was able to repeat the
conversation that incurred ltefore he deliv
ered the fatal blow.
He had asked here a few days lxtfore to
loie with him so that they might get mar
ried. When lie approached her it was to
find whether she was willing to go.
"Well, Mainly," he said, "will you do
what I wanted of you?"
"No, I will not," was the girl's reply as
he faced him, entirely unsuspicious of
danger and Hpouking lioldly; "you know I
"Then you won't elope with me?" was his
Struck the Iastard Illow.
"No," said the girl, "I can't; I'm going to
school now and I want to get an education.
After that I can talk to you."
"That's your final answer, is it?" rejoined
Watson, still making no show of anger.
"You go a ay," replied the girl; "I'm not
going to talk to you."
It was then that Watson jerked out his
knife and made a quick thrust at Miss
Cain's breast with it. It was but a single
stab. It diii not reach the heart, hut sev
ered an artery.
Neither in voice nor in manner had he
shown previously any excitement or feeling.
Airs. Cain was about thirty feet away
near her door at the time. She had before
called to her daughter, telling her not to
talk to Watson. When she saw him strike
she ran forward screaming toward her girt.
A Faithful lojr'a Vain KfTory.
Watson sprang at her, and with a curse
inade several quick lunges at her with his
knife. He struck her each time, but his at
tention was diverted by the family's bull
dog, a hich came out in a rush at the shriek
ing of the w men. Uesprnngat Watson as

animal grab'.nl Uin: by the leg, and it was
this alone th:.t saved Mrs. Cain from leiiig
murdered as Her daughter had Ik-ch. W..
son, in self defense had to trtrn on the dog.
He slashed at the faithful brute and cut a
slice of skin off its neck and shoulder lefi re
its grip was loosened. Mrs. Cain's shrieks
were alarming the neighborhood, and when
Watson got free from the tlog he started off
to his father's home.
Threatened to Kill Iiis Father.
He had the bloody knife with him and
impetuously demanded some money from
his mother. . The father raising some olv-ji-ction.
or wmiting to know what for. the
fellow turned on him. seized a shotgun,
and thieateT-ed to kill him on the spot. His
mother and father had no money, and he
li.stantly ran away from the house. He

night. Mr. Gilmore was seized with a vio
lent attack of cram a)out 3 o'clock a. m.
Dr. II. T. Toudd wjis summoned. He found
his patient suffering from what appeared to
he a very severe bilious attack. He called
in for conference three other physicians.
Vnder their treatment Mr. Gilmore rallied,
and during the morning seemed to be im
proving. At 1 o'clock p. m. he suffered a
relapse, however, and the physicians gave
up all hope of his recovery. He sank rap
idly, anil died at the hour mentioned above.
Kxclied hy a New Honor.
Saturday afternoon Mr. Gilmore, for the
first time since the beginning several years
ago of his engagement at the exposition,
did not occupy his usual place aud wield
the baton at the band's concerts. No one
surmised, however, that his illness was of
a serious nature, and but few believed the
first report of hist death. Gilmore received
notice Friday of his apKiintment as direc
tor of music nt the World's fair. This ex
cited him, nnd as he has for mnny years
lieen a sufTeier from palpitation of the
heart, caused a tcmoorary prostration.

SEVEN GROUND TO PIECES.
Terrible Collision Hetween a Wild Train
and n Freight.
New Hampton, la., Sept. 2i. What is
known in railway vernacular as a "wild
train" was the cause Sat unlay of an ap
palling disaster at this place, resulting in
the death of seven persons and causing
grievous injuries to others. The names of
the victims follow: M. McNamara, of In
dependence; W. Beeman, Otto Smith, Geo.

known man: Henry McCarthy. The in
jured are: Tom Ganghan, hurt internally
ami legs broken cannot recover; Owen
Conley, hurt about the head, but may re
cover. Was Nearer Than Kxpected.
It appears that a way-freight train on the
Chicago and Great Western road was back
ing up on the main line to make room for a
wild freight, rciorted to le half an hour
late. The latter train was much nearer to
New Hampton, however, than hail been
surmised, and a sharp curve hid it from
view. The crash came almost without
warning, the engine of the wild train dash
ing into the oalnmse of the other, literally
reducing it to kindling wood. Three men
were in the ealxxise and aljout a dozen on a
flat car ahead of it. The men killed were
mangled lieyond recognition. Three men
on the Hat car were killed and two mortally
injured. A half dozen others were hurt
more or less.

La Guayra, Venezuela, Sept. 20. There
is intense excitement in this city over the
arrival of the Red D line steamer Caracas
from New Y'ork by way of Puerto Calello,
an insurgent port. Captain Edward White,
in command of the United States cruiser
Concord, anticipating difficulties, advised
the captain of the Caracas not to deliver
up the steamer's papers at the custom-house
Sent an Armed Iloat.
Furthermore, in order to keep those pa
pers from falling into the hands of the lo
cal customs officials Commander White
sent a lwnt to the Caracas with, a force of
armed men, who received the documents
from the steamer's captain and carried
them to the Concord's commander for pres
ervation until the Caracas should 1h ready
to sail. Two Venezuelans were thrust into
prison on landing for having taken passage
on the Caracas f rom Puerto Cabello.
Uncle Sain Makes a Demand.
The customs officials at first refused to
grant the Caracas permission to discharge
her cargo, but afterward consented to al
low her to unload freight. United States
Minister Scruggs sent a formal demand to
the Venezuelan capital for the return of the
six refugees taken from the Caracas some
time ago and now in the hands of General
Urdaveta. He also demanded a salute to
the American flag and the payment of per
sonal damages to the refugees.
No Government to ltecel'e It.
But there was no regular government to
reply to these demands for reparation, as
the capital is in a state of anarchy. Foreign
merchants are imprisoned xmless they give
money to the army. Minister Scruggs has
advised Americans not to pay any
thing for such purposes. Villegas Pulido,
who has assumed the reins of presi
dent, and Pepier have taken an army of
4, Otto men and started to attack General
Crespo at Ia Teuquas. A rigid press cen
