DEAVY DAMAGES AWARDED
Florence Bathe Gets $25,000 for
A TRAIN ROBBER'S CONFESSION.
Hundreds of Now Cholera Cases iu
$25,000 for Breach of Promise.
Portland, Or., Sept. 28.- It was a
most Interesting case. Florenoe Bathe,
tbo plaintiff, is a prepossessing young
woman. With her in tbe courtroom
were her father and mother, and her
7-year-old eon, whose father was tbe
defendant, Thomas Welch, and whose
birth, as alleged, was the result of se
duction under tbe promlso of marriage
This was a case that readily excited
the sympathy of tbo Jury. The defend
ant did not even try to oxouso his
course, and with his attorney withdrew
from tho trial altogether. This loft as
witnesses the young woman and her
father and mother. The story they
told was straightforward and conclu
sive, and could not fall to impress all
who hoard it.
It was to tbe effect that young
Welch, who was a druggist ou tho East
Hide, bad paid assiduous attention to
Miss Bathe. He proposed, telling her
he loved her most dearly, kissed her
and caressed her with great showing of
afleotton. She accepted. They were
then together much of the time. Final
ly, under the promise of marriage, and
claiming that they would soon be uni
ted, he succeeded In seducing her. In
tlmo she found she was in trouble.
Welch refused to marry her and left
the country. That was ia 1885. Miss
Bathe has not seon bltn since until In
tho courtroom today. In tho mean
time, however, she has endeavored to
reach him, had written letters, and
placed detectives on bis track, but all
without avail. Bluco the birth of her
child, she has lived closely at homo
with her parents. This great sbamo
and wrong has hung heavily upon her,
but she has borne It as cheerfully as
posseble and brought up the boy as well
us she could.
The little fellow Is a haudsomo lad,
and as he stood up for tho Jury to seo
blm thoyhad additional reasou for tho
verdict they gavo later. On the witness
stand she told her experiocoo In a
modest way, and apparently showed to
the Jury beyond a doubt that she had
been woefully wronged and that her
life had been Immeasurably blighted.
Hon. J. F. Caplcs addressed the Jury
In her bobalf oloquontly, and Judgo
Bhattuck delivered a brief charge In
the girl's favor.
The twelve men woro out only 10
minutes. Tbey returned a verdict for
tho full amount of $25,000 damages.
The defendant fa said to hayo some
property, and at one tlmo had an ox
tremo drug business. Tho father of tbe
plaintiff la a well-to-do farmer near

Philadelphia, Bept. 28. A hun
dred and fifty leading manufacturers of
of this city, led by Wharton, a banker
and well known flnanclor. have drawn
up and signed a proposition, ottering
the silver senators aid In their fight
against tbe repeal of tbo silver purchase,
provided the latter will combine to pre
vent any tariff legislation.
As over half of the manufacturers
who signed the paper are Republicans
and this community has favored repeal,
this now movement has created a sen
sation In business circles.
The circular contains these three
propositions to the silver senaters:
That the United atates shall admit
sliver bullion from Amerloan mines to
coinage In IU mints upon payment by
the owner of selgnorage absorbing three
fourths of the difference ..between, the
market (London) price of bullion and
its valuo when coined.
