Ni.'v ).i.i:N-i, Sept. 1.--There luis been

of ti e city, hut it whs conducted h quiet
ly t!;it the account of the horr'.lile atTair
whs i.juite a tur;i:ie ti the community.
The ? ic'inis iif the vempance of the mob
Were three nvro lrct lic-rs i:h'iicc1 Jn'.iiin
and tin- iiine which tiiey exjiinted in so
Biimmi.ry n n;antn r wms the shieMin of a
fourth hrnther, K'Mclius Julian, who on
Friili-.y nftcruooti fcl of Judge Victor Ks
tojiimil to death whi'.e trying him for a
Uiv:nl offense, seriously wounded the
judge's son, nnd then made food his es
cite. The shooting occurred in the court
room itnil the murderer continued firing
until the judire, who followed to cloe ia
up. in liini fell mortally wounded immedi
ately outside and to the left of the build
liifi. The nei;ro then stood over the pros
tmte form of his victim and fired a fourth
shot, which is supposed to be the one
that pissed through the heart.
IVoumU Another Hud (.i ts Away.
Ofli-erKorlxr ran to assist the j ml ire
an ! tl e ueirro made a dash across the
g-oinids for his cabin. Ju.t nt this time
Attcust Kstopinal, a son of t tie murdered
ofticia', who is enijihrvcl as a conductor on
the CarroUton road, was coming in from
hiswc.rk, and lie cave etiase to the man
whom hi- hud j-.mt seen murder his fatiier.
The ne-ro reached his cabi::, obtained an
other weapon, and cominir out, tired two
Allots at the younir man. who sought safety
in a house near by. The netrro provided
bimelf well with ammunition while i:i
the cabin, for during his short stay he
pralibed up a vul se and a Winchester rifle.
It whs from this riile that he fired two
allots by which youcg Kstopinal was
wounded. The nejrro made for theswnmps
in the rear of the city and beini: perfectly
familiar with them was soon in safe hid
ing. 1 'os-.ro immediately organized and
all nitrlit and all Saturday tne surrouud-in-r
Hilary was scoured, but the scare-hint;
was fruitless so far as the real criminal
was concerned. It should be noted, pr
hnps. that there would have been no trial
if the "posse" had canirht him.
Arrests ouSmull I'rovorution.
The mother, two" brothers and two
Uteri of the negro Koselius were arrtsted
at the Itlnck l.'idse, in the rear of the citv,
by tin city poiice and were then taken to
the little jail en Judge Kstopinal's place
about Soutliport. Another brother was
arre-c-d later in the day in the same
lieuhliorhood and taken to the sum jail.
What caused the arrest of the mo her and
two sis-ers was that on a visit made to the
house these females were found wrapping
up some clothes .mil a loaf of bread. This
aroused the suspicion that, the articles
were to be conveyed to the fugitive. The
brothers were di-covered piing over the
Iilnck Kic)gc;, and had a shirt bundled up
as if it were intended for .Julian. This
aroused mspicioa against them. The two
broth? r were i-auht coming out of the
w-nmp-, and as they persistent ly refused
to stale w hence they had come, they too
fell under the batie of doubt. Hence all
Hound to Have Some Victims.
The "po-ses" hunted in vain and Rose
litis still remained safe in his liidintr place.
Tli is iiad the effect of aggravating the
crowd, and about 11 p. m. a gang of
potsiV went to the jail aud talked over
a line, large banning bee. Some wanted
tohaiguomen aud all; others thought
that n couple of the In cithers would bup-p!yallth-
entertainment necessary, and
this w ts agreed to. They were according
ly taken out of jail and strung up. It is
not necessary to describe the scene except
to say tiiat the mob was very considerate
and refrained from the frequent drag-ring
bv the nec k, riddling of the bodies, etc.
American readers are so well ncijuniutecl
wit h mob law that detailed accounts are
no longer interesting.
Wasn't CJllile I.immiIi Fun.
Tiie " os-es" stood around the place of
execution "half an hour talking it over,
until the idea was suggested that there
were three other "niggers" in jail and
that they would look well hanging in a
row. Somehow the crowd did not think
tii tt the wi. men would add to the dignity
of the occasion, but it was soon deter
minrd to hang the third brother: didn't
lika to think how lonely he would lie. So
they took him out and hanged him in
Kicked Another Man to I lent h.
It may as well be noted here that dur
ing the search forRoselius Saturday ono
of the "possea" visited the house of a negro
family in the neighborhood of Camp Para
pet and failing to find the object of their
search tried to induce John Wills, a young
negro, to disclose the whereabouts of Ju
liuu. He re fused to do so or could not do
, and he was kicked to death by the
gang. So here are four persons lynched
not because they committed any crime,
but because they were "suspected" of
kuowiiiK where the perpetrator of the
crime was and wouldn't tell. And three of
these men were brothers of the criminal.
HE ROBBED JHIS UNCLE SAM.
A Trusted Government Ottl:er Wa the
Thief Who Stole the tiold.
Washington-, Sept. iS.-Forty-three
years' service in the Philadelphia mint
lias been closed in a cloud of disgrace and
dishonor by Henry S. Cochran, weight
clerk at that institution. For it was he
and no other who stole the $134,000 in gold
bars that were missing from' the reserve
vault. Den the f ullion was ordered to
lie coined Cochran aroused suspicion by
his eagerness to have bullion shipped from
New York for that pt.rpose, and by several
other circumstances-. Chief Drummond,
of the secret service was put on the case,
and to him, when lu found the Hushes
tilosmg around him, Cochran confessed.
lie had been steal. i:;r tor ten years, but up
to ten days ho bad ..btained but $34,000.
During that ten days he added $100,000 to
his stealings The :J4,IK)0 he had taken
borne, but cue t-100,00" he hid in the mint
and that was retov. red with f7,000 from
his home. He is wi rtu fod.ooo and under
bond for $10,000, so he government will
probably lose uothi ig. His method ot
Mealing was to use a hooked wire which
he put through the lattice work of the
vault nnd pulled a bt r of gold off the tip
of the pile, then alot: rthe floor to the door,
which had a space beneath it and wa
loose on its hinges. Uy lifting the door a
litt? he pulled the bar completely out.
HeVMik the .'U.oi home h. bar at a timl
in Ins lunch basket.
Drummond says l,e hail no trouble get
ting the truth out of Cochran, who after
beimr told that Dr iinmond wanted him
to help find the thief took a-few moments
to think i( cr.-er nnd then said he was the
man. He is, says Drummond, somewhat
off his mental bal nice not wholly a
criminal, but not alto-ether a klepto
maniac. He seems ti have a dislike of the
government because he docs rot think it
has done ec mgh for him, and his chief
regret now seems to be that he will have
to return what he stole. He is an active
member of the Presbyterian church and n
liberal supporter of t ie church work. Ot
late he has been much interested in the
Salvation Army, wh ch has lieen conduct
ing an active campairn r.t Mount Moriah.

WORE ARRESTS IN MICHIGAN.
The (Htlrials Seem In I5e on the Track oS
Those Train Kohhers.
IIOTT.HTov. Mich., Sept. U Evidence i
accumulating against John Kim:, alleged
to be one of the par' ic-ipants in the Han
cock train robbery. Officers discovered n
bag in the buggy ust d by King on Friday
and some twine such as bnuks use in tv
ing up money packages. .Tim Ktit.-r, a
suspicious character, was seen with King
in the morning and madetracksfnrthe D.,
S. S. and A. station, where he was ar
rested by Marshal Filey! He was called
Gorman in former dispatches.
John Keho, who also was detained as a
suspect, has been relensed, having proved
an alibi. Ahorse ld mciag to the latter,
it is claimed, was driven by King nnd
Duller nnd has been identified. Kehoe
claims the horse wa taken without his
knowledge. Several detectives are now on
the ground and nearly loo deputy sheriffs
are scourinir the count ry. Most of them
are patrolling the sho-es of Lake Superior
to prevent the robbers leaving the penin
sula liy tioat.
Albert Cannon, keeper of a "joint' nr
the Soo, was nuder police surveillance, but
got nway on the noon train. He was ar
rested by the marshal at Neiaunee nnd
brought back to Houg iton. The Tinker
tons are now in commnnd. Some startling
developments are promised by the police
this week. Some prominent people of
this section are said tr be rmrdicated.
NEWMAN ATTACKS BUDDHA.
The Methodist I'.ishop Opens Fire on n
ltel igloos 1'arliatiieiit Speaker.
New Al.BAXT, Intl.. Sept. Bishop
John P. Newman, of Omaha. Neb., de
livered a ermon before a crowded house
nt Trinity M. E. church in this city in
answer to the discourse; delivered nt the
religious congress of the world at Chi
cago a few clays ago b-.- a learned Budd
hist, whose areumen s were character
ized by Bishop Newm in as an insnlt to
the Christian and intelligent people of
America. All the religions of the world
had come, Bishop Newman said, from the
cast. Keallv all the treat religious
thoughts of nil the cr-eds of the world
may be traced from the great book that
was as much a solace to its readers in this
day as it was centuries ago.
Due credit should be civen to those illus
trious men, Socrates, ( 'onf ileitis nnd Zoro
aster. When Kurope was t roping in barbar
ism, devoid of civilisation, there had
sprung up in India a r ligion founded by
Buddha, who had spetr twenty-nine years
of his life in the gratification of his pns
sions. The preacher n viewed the life and
teaching-, of Buddha nnd said that Budd
liism had given to th? world no helpful
literature, no system o' free government,
no social system and no heroic virtues.
Contrast the results with those attained
In the Christian couiitr.es of the world.
On the banks of the Ganges, Bishop New-

The pundit who had recently spoken in

Christ, but mark the result the infant

children thrown into the Ganges, widow

burned on the funeral i yre of her deceased
husband. Out of th. religion has come

thusiasts to become robbers, assassins and

in every land, had read all works relating
to the subjects under discussion, had

ERIEF HISTORY CF THE EUILDING.
Knclixh Architects Hud Mue!i to Io with
The first plans of the Capitol were the
production of an Englishman named
Thorn..on and his coninetitor in nl.ins xena t
a Frenchman named Haliett, who was
later employed ns supervising architect.
He had a row with the commissioners and
was succeeded by George lleadfield, an
other Englishman, who later had trouble
with the commissioners, and James Ilo
ban. architect of the White House, suc
ceeded and finished the north wing in 1S00.
In lo:t Benjamin II I.atrotie.tbe founder
the Ijitrobe family of Baltimore, was
placed in charge of the south wing. lie
came to this country in I71H5, was intro
duced to Washington, who took a liking
to him and later he was frequently con
sulted regarding such works. He found
the north wing poorly constructed and
remodoled it on his own plans. He fin
ished the s:uth wiug in lsil and connected
the two with a covered bridge where the
rotunda now stands.
Nothing was done further and in 1814
the British committed the inexcusable
act of vandalism iu setting the building
on lire. A rain quenched the fiames after
the British had gone and Latrobe was sent
for again. He found the foundations all
right and by 1817 had the work so well ad
vanced that it was turned over to Bull
finch, a Massachusetts architect, who com
pleted the building on Latrobe designs.
Later it was determined to flank the
wiii'-s with pavilions for the senate and
house, of marble, and build a new dome,
which was done under the supervision of
Thomas A. Walter, a Philadelphia arch
itect. The sandstone was replaced by
marble over the whole building, and in
18U7 the building was completed as it
stands today, having cost nearly $13,
000,000. Christian Missionary Women.

Rates for Chicago Day.
Chicago, Sept. 18. One cent a mile has
been named by the Union Pacific as the

Saturday Voorhees again tried to get an
expression in favor of setting a day for the
vote on the repeal bill, and Teller said no
body was talking for the purpose of delay,
and nobody would likely do so, and the
matter might lie over. Allison spoke for
three hours in favor of repeal, as the true
way, he said, to rehabilitate silver was to
force England aud Europe to agree on the
subj.ct of coinage, whic h they would not
do as long as we continued our present
