where they will be cordially received
and a grand barbecue given in honor
of their arrival. They could not have

will find tho.countrv willi lier best foot
foremost, and it is tho general wish of
these people that they may he pleased
to make this their future home, and
that many others will follow their
example. Arkansas is a great State,
and all that is needed to place her
among thc first in thc Union is more
good industrious people to settle up
tim country and push forward thc
work of improvement that is already
rapidly going on.
If you will allow the space l will
give you a copy of a report from this
State, published at New Orleans during
thc Exposition, which gives a wider
knowledge and better description of
thc progross of thc Stale than I am,
proparod lo give in my own language:
A review of the history and progress
of Arkansas, since her incorporation
into Hie Union, shows much of which
her people may be proud. Originally
a part of thc French territorial posses
sions in this country, Arkansas was
acquired by thc United States bv pur
chase in 1808. On Mardi 1*17, she
was created a Territory, and on .lune
15, 18:iG, she was admitted as a State
into the Union. lu 1820her popula
tion was hut 14,000. In 18iJ;i it ex- j
ceedod one million.
Arkansas is situated in Hie cotton ]
belt, and lias an acreage of 62,198 i
square miles. She ls particularly for
tunate in tho possession of navigable
streams-the mississippi, White, Ar- 1
kansas. Black, Ked, Ouuchitu, Little
lied and other rivers furnishing ample
facilities for tlie transportation of her
wealth of production, lu point of
fertility, Arkansas cannot be excelled,
as evinced by the variety and value of
her harvest. She is particularly rich
in her timber growth. In lier forests
aro found all varieties of the oak,
beech, hackborry, maple, pine, paw
paw, wild cherry, walnut, locust, elm,
and many others- Of fruit, tho grape,
peach, plum, strawberry, raspberry,
apple and pear are in bounteous sup
ply, and tho award of a gold medal by
thc World's Exposition attests their
excellence. Tho cereals are grown to
advantage, and prolific crops of clover,
timothy and oilier grasses carpet her
pastures. Thc minerai deposits are
extensive, varied and valuable. Their
yield is limited only by the labor ap
plied lo extract them.
Tile medicinal waters of Arkansas
aro of world-wide reputation. Eureka
and Hot Springs are tho resorts of
thousands of afflicted whom the skill
of the physicians has failed to relieve.
Of the system of public schools,
too much cannot bc said in praise.
With liberal cdowmcnts, careful fos
tering, and capable instructors thc
standard of cducntion is deservedly
high. It is gratifying to notice that
?acli succeeding year material!) do?
creases thc ratio of illiteracy.
In internal and public improvement
Arkansas manifests great energy and
/.cal. Works of permanent Improve?
nient continue to multiply, and evi
dences of progress are seen oil every
side. Handsome structures, beautiful
crops, magnificent forests, health?
giving springs, prolific soil and a genial,
healthful climate arc among the many
attractions of Arkansas.
Of her people it may lie truly said
that they are worthy of their grand
possessions. Brave, energetic, intelli
gent and enterprising, they will un
doubtedly supplement thc achievements
of tlie past by slili more brilliant ones
in the future. Orators, poets, warriors
and statesmen have ever kept Hie
record of Arkansas brigid amt illus
trious. No State in tlie Union lias a
brighter rainbow of promise.

rtte KfforU Staking to Find the Slayer* of
Mullida McKnight The Detective* Claim
to llave the Hight Man.
(fiYomtke Charleston Sunday Dis? atch.)
Tho city council of Charloston s?v
irai weeks ago wrote to thc world
renowued Pinkerton detective agency,
.. J asked for one of their shrowdest
men, a veritable human hawk, to trail
Ibo murderers of Matilda McKnight to
justice and to doom. Shortly after
ward a thick-sot, dark-hatred young
man of about thirty arrived in Charles
ton and quietly introduced himself to
tho olhcers of thc city as Clayton M.
Weber, of thc Pinkerton agency, and
was given the few vague and feeble
clues already in possession of thc
authorities-clues willoh tended lo
mystify rather than clear up thc mur
der, lt is said in illustration of this
man's aptitude for bis business, that
after hoing introduced to a prominent
city otlicial, tho latter was innocent
enough to ask tho detective if bc
knew bow to disguise himself. Tho
doleotivo looked at him vacantly and
said ho hadn't thought ofthat, but If it
was necessary lie could try. An hour
or so utter tiic conversation, an aged
and decrepit! negro man called at the
otlieial's otlice and induced him to buy
a dozen peaches out of charity. The
aged negro was tho Pinkerton detec
tive, whose identity was not suspected,
and would never have been known if
tho joke had not leaked out on Ibo
On taking charge of thc case, Mr
Weber repaired to the neighborhood
of the crime, where he soon became
well known by the neighborhood,
although his identity and business
were not suspected. After work inti
several days ho became satisfied that
thc parlies already arrested were
innocent, and that thc real mur
derers had not been suspected. For
two or three weeks bis labors were
apparently without result, and thc few
pooplo who knew he was nero bogan to
believe that even thc Pinkerton man
was hauled, and would go home with
out his game.
On Thursday last, however, the
result of his labor was indicated by his
swearing out warrants for Mr. Silas
Daly, thc white truck fanner who
found the bundles on tho morning after
the murder, Thomas Divine, a col
ored man in his employ, and Amanda
Martin, his cook. They were taken
to jail without bail, and that evening
Lieutenant Sigwald, of tho police
force, Detective Weber and several
citizens, including a Dispatch re
porter, visited the house and premises
of Mr. Daly, situated on Rutledge
avenue, nearly Opposite the house of
Matilda McKnight, the murdered wo
man, the latter being set back seventy
live yards from the street, and cut oil'
from thc street by a vacant lot over
grown with woods.
Mr. Daly's premises were in charge
ol' a colored man deputed by the sherill'
to take care of them. The house was
oponed to the otllcers and reporter and
a thorough search was made. Mr.
Daly, who had been living ill the
neighborhood about two years, is a
bachelor of nearly sixty, though he
looks much younger. Mis house isa
low, narrow, cream-colored frame
building, with tho gable toward the
Street, ll is one story high and com
posed ot three rooms in a row, each
room being as wide as tho house, leav
ing a few feet for the little piazza In
front. The Pinkerton man was alert
and busy and restless. With his vest
unbuttoned and his sleeves rolled tip
he pumped a bucket of water, and
carried it to the little front gate and
put it down. Ile returned to the
house and procured a broom and
hatchet and chisel. Ile swept the sin
gle plank sill that runs even with the
ground between the ??ate posts, until a
cow could have licked it without sand
ing her tongue. Ile then began tc
wash it with the bucket of water.
After exhausting his bucket of water he
let the sun dry the sill and then bc
leaned over it and gazed long and
anxiously at thc bare plank. Rising
lie procured another bucket of water
and washed until il was exhausted.
Then another and another. Finally
the sill was allowed to dry a second
As tho dampness began to evap?rale, |
and thc plank began to whiten, two
red bloody-looking stains which had
been invisible before appeared Oil its
face. The crowd gathered around
with an exclamation of surprise. Thc
detective then took up his chisel and
hatchet and began to pick around tho
red stained spot. He soon chiseled
out a chip from each placo-tho chips
retaining the stains after being re
moved from the sill. A larger chip
was then taken out ol' thc three-plank
bridge across the ditch in front ot thc
gate, it having been submitted to the
same process of washing. These chips
were placed carefully in evelopes and
labeled and stowed away in the Pink
erton man's pocket.
A spado was next procured, and
with that the detective, felt and loosen
ed every tuft of grass in the little yard
and sounded every suspicions looking
spot, bis indention doubtless being to
lind the missing hat and parasol.
Failing in this, his search of the prem
ises was completed, and the crowd left
the house in charge of thc sheriffs dep
Ten o'clock on Saturday morning
was the hour appointed for the txaini
nation of the three prisoners. Daly,
Divine and Amanda Martin, before
Trial Justice Whitman. At ten min
utes past ten o'clock the examination
began hy swearing Simon Washington.
Ile was frightened. His laddlcdikc
legs sm..t.- together and bis tongue
rolled in his head like a beet in a boil
ing kettle. His testimony was sub
stantially the same as that given by
several others before the esroner's jury
relative lo his being present when tho
bundles and body .vere found. Ho
sahl bc was goidg to his work that
morning, when he was accosted by Mr.
Daly, who told lum to get over iii the
lot and hand him the bundled, which
lie did. He said ha would not know
Mr. Daly again if he saw him, and he
Tailed to point him out in Ihn court

whom is thc solicitor, heforo tho arrest
and thc arrests wcro made by their
advice In addition to tho prisoners I
mentioned, Jack Uro wu, colored, was
arrested on Thursday bj-Official Harry
May? who believed "him lo be} ono of
thc murderers, and this opinion is
sustained by tho testimony of tho
woman Amanda Martin. Thiswoman
made a confession to un officer in tho
presence ol'a third party on Thursday
iinmediateh after lier arrest, which is
tho most direct and startling informa
tion yet dieted in regard to thc mur
der. Amanda Martin, Daly's cook,
ill her quasi confession said: "I came
to Mr. Daly's house on tho morning
after tlic murder to get breakfast at
about .r> o'clock. Mr. Daly refused to
admit mc, and I licaid Iii m and .lack
Brown and Tom Divine talking inside
An 'nour or two later I wae admitted.
The men had been scouring tho floor,
and somo of thc bcd clothes wcro
bloody. When I asked what tt incant I
Mr. Daly told mc to keep my mouth
sim. about it. Mr. Daly was very
much excited tliat day, and frequently
left tho house and wentout in tho yard.
Several nights aller the murder when
tliey tiicy thought 1 was gone, l heard
Mr. Daly and Brow ll ana Divine talk
ing about thc killing and 1 heard them
say tiicy did it. Mr. Daly told Brown
and Divine lie was going to give them
a hundred dollars apiece for toting out
tito body I also heard them say they
liad buried thc hat and para-ol, but
tiley did not say where I kept all
this a secret until now because I wus
afraid to tell it."
Opinions are divided as to tho result
ol'this investigaron. But the general
drift of public opinion gravitates to
ward the belief that tho Pinkerton man
lias woven Iiis chain without a lacking
link, and that at thc proper time he
will prove it. One thing is almost!
axiomatic-tlic bottom of the McKnight
murder mystery is nearly readied, and
tho circle of safety in which her slayeis
are hiding is growing smaller day by"

All that, lias boen published concern
ing tito cost of Gen, Grant's funeral is
pure guess-work. Tilings have not yet
taken snell shape that it could be other?
wise. Mr. Merritt, thc undertaker, said
that lie could not tell whether Ilia hill
would be twenty thousand dollars or
twenty thousand cents. He did not
know yet what the expense of numbers
of details had been lo him, anti until
he knew this it was impossible to make
even an approximate estimate of what
his charges would he. Thc fust order
came to liim in a telegram from Col.
Fred Grant the day tho General died.
This covered tho canopy, tho coffin, tho
embalming and all that was done at
Mount McGregory. Tho second order
came from thc war department and
covered the funeral car, live hundrod
carriages and the. work in New York.
So tar as he knew now he should ren
der one bill to tho Government ind
another to Col. Grunt.
What thc doctors' bills arc is equally
as much in doubt. Dr. Douglas up to
tlic time of Hie General's death had
received from tlic family only $1,000.
This was in tlic form of a check made
out by tho General himself on receiving
au instalment of Iiis retired pay. The
family have as yet received nothing
from the General's book, and probably
will receive from it much less than has
They get seventy cents on the volume
and up to tlie tuno of tlic General's
death their share from thc subscrip
