FLEEING FROM A FATHER-IN-LAW.
Chauncey Pulsiver Runs Avay With a
Rich Philadelphia Girl.
Pnrsuciio, Dec 10. Chauncey Pul-iver,
a dapper ex-theatrical manager, nowengagtd
in mercantile pursuits, but for a time mana
ger of Lillian Spencer, afterwards for liart
ley Camrbfell's ' Siberia," fled through this
city Tuesday night tow ants Detroit, with the
hrgnUome and 'conip!ifd;t:d dangliter of
Chester F. Vandemark, of Philadelphia, a
well-known gentleman of wealth and refine
ment. This morning the irate father of tho
young lady, in hot fpursuit, arrived in Pitts
burg, stopping at the Union Depot long
enough to tat a hard-boiled egg and to tell
his story. Pulsiver and Miss Yand mark
met thre years ago, while he was Hammer
ing in Florida. Her parent, noticing his
attentions, took her away. A few weeks ago
at tho Continental Hold, Philadelphia, their
meetings again becamo frequent. A decoy
letter came from kii aunt in Rochester, N. .
Next day the girl was gon. Her father
found a note which put him on tho trail.
She had not gone to Rochester, bat in com
pany of Pulsiver, had skipped for Detroit.
Pulsirer is unite widely known in West
ern Michigan, having resided at St. Joseph.
He has been popular, and has friends who
will, doubtless, be ready to congratulate

Chicago, Dec. 10. The Chicago fc Grand
Trunk road made to-day a reduction of $ t on
first, and 6 on second-class tickets from
Chicago to Boston, via Montreal, making
the rate $15 nnd D.40. To-morrow the
Michigan Central and its connection with
the Canadian Pacific, will not only meet
these rates via Ottawa nnd Montreal, but
also reduce rates to all intermediate joints
between Chicago and Boston, via the Mon
treal route. The Chicago it Grand Trunk
will no doubt retaliate by cutting ratts
from here to Buffalo and New York, via tho
West Shore route. This will result in a
general war of rates east.
A Terrible Story.
Great Baiuiington, Mass., Dec. 10. There
is much excitement at Egremont over
the report that tho body of a well
known young lady, Miss Estello Newmany,

medical students and taken to Albany,
where the lady came to life on thy defecting
table, became insane, and has since been
confined in the asylum in Schoharie County.
The Ptory is credited to Dr. Worth Wright,
of Egremont, one of those concerned in the

A PRISON CONFERENCE.
HELD YESTERDAY AT CHICAGO.
Comparing Methods and Seeking for
Work Laid Out for To-Day.
Chicago, Dec. 10. The conference of
prison wardens and other officers of prisons,
reformatories end houses of correction
throughout the United States, reassembled
at the Grand Pacific Hotel to-day. Between
forty and fifty oificials were present, besides
a number of gentlemen who have philan
thropic interest in the subject. The session
is tho first of the kind that has ever been
held in this country. Its object is to com
pare methods and theories for the purpose of
instituting in the prison rcfommtory systems
of tho country such improvements as are
deemed feasible. The sevion was called to
order by Supt. Felton, of Chicago Bride
well. The committee on permanent organ
ization reported. oITering the names of th
following gentlemen to bo its officers: Chair
man, Michael J. Cassidy, warden of East
ern penitentiary, Philadelphia; Fecretaries,
T. H. Wines, of the State bo.rd of chari
ties, and John W. Whiton, of the Boston Re
form School. The report was adopted, and
the secretary having read letters from var
ious prison officials no present, tho commit
tee on business reported the following topics
for discussion during the session: Thursday
forenoon, disciplinary punishment," medical
and sanitary regulations, insanity in prisons,
discharged prisoners. The report was
AFTER THE PLUMS.
An Old Democratic Prophet and Seer
A reporter of the Detroit Post ran against
an old Hickory Democrat on the streets of
Michigan's metropolis Tuesday, and drew
from him the following predictions concern
ing some Democratic magnates of this sec
tion: "Col. Messmore, of Grand Rapids, has
bellowed soft money until he is thought to
have earned a soft enap and will probably
get it. It has been a time-honored custom
with the colonel to invade the sacred soil of
Indiania during each campaign and exert his
bushel or two of lungs until the hills and
the valleys of the Hoosier state echoed to the
screams of the eagle. As the
colonel's help went to the faithful of
Indiana, it would eem opposed to the
logic of consistency that ho should be re
warded by a postoluce at Grand Rapids. But
there is a destiny that shapes our ends. The
windy colonel is said to have made a mash
upon one Thomas Hendricks, who being
chosen to a position that would make him
President should Cleveland dio, ignores the
assistance of the grim messenger and as
sumes to be chief executive without delay.
It is boldly asserted that Thomas says Mess
more can have tho postofiico. The Colonel
is the only man in Grand Rapids who ex
presses any great desire' that the Colonel
should receive the appointment; but. the
Colonel's wishes are consulted.
Gen. Tunes is talked of for United States
Marshal in the. Western District. As the
head and front of the Greenback party, a
good organizer and a man to bo depended
upon in doing what ho promises, he is too
formidable an aspirant to antagonize. His
pole is of sufficient length to bring down the
persimmon. Yaple, of the Kalamazoo Dis
trict, has but to name it and they will give
it to him, but there is a manifest disposition
not to let him parcel out any spoils, for the
Democrats hold that his recent defeat for
Congress indicates a slight slipping of his
grip. He can have a big chunk for Yaple,
but none to send around to the neighbors.
Charley Hampton, of Harbor Springs, is a
young Greenbacker, accredited with doing
yeoman service, and can take a prize. The
men who can do most to maintain tho un
holy alliance are to be cared for."
The Merchants Exchange.
A meeting of the Merchinta' Exchange
was held in tho parlors of the Morton last
evening. The appointment by tho Executive
Committee of Will A: Smith as actuary nnd
attorney of the Exchange was ratified by the
meeting. Mr. Smith, who has just returned
from a trip to Chicago and Detroit in the in
terests of the association, made a report of
his trip and explained tho workings of the
Detroit Exchange, which he fully investi
gated. Tho offices for tho Exchange will be
determined upon soon, and it is expected
they will be ready for active business oper
ations some time the coming week. Nearly
all the jobbers of t 'io city have become mem
bers of this organization.

DEFENDED BY NEIGHBORS.
An Explanation of the Case of Richards
Several neighbors of Freeman Richards,
of Paris township, called nt The Telegram
office eterday to say that in their opinion
Mr. Richards Lad been unfairly treated.
Last Friday these columns contained an ac
count of an encounter between liim and
John Henneman, near the latter's barn, in
which it was stated tLit Mr. Richards at
tacked Henneman and was bo severely
handled that he ran away. The Paris gentle
men say that Richards, just at dusk, heard a
woman's screams and cries of "Don't kill
me," etc., near Henneman'a and ran there
to Be what the trouble was. He found a
small boy near the bari and asked him wjiat
tho matter was, vrhethejr some one was being
hurt. Jnst then Henneman approached him
in a threatening manner. Richards caught
np a piece of board, but Henneman grapf led
with him, and he, thinking Henneman was
opening a knife, ran away, and afterward
brought an action for assault. The gentle
men who called assert that Mr. Richard has
Uveal in Paris for bome thirty years and
never before had the least difficulty with a
TRADb AND FINANCE.

The feature of the morning dealings waa the
heavy pressure to seU Lake Shore and Lacka
wanna, both of which declined uninterruptedly
from the first call up to 12:30 p. m. The heavy
decline in these stocks was taken advantage of
hy the shorts to circulate all sorts of rumors. It
was reported that the selling of the stocks men
tion nd was chiefly by houses whoe financial stat
us com pell ed thera to unload, and failures were
predicted by some croakers. About 1 o'clock
news was received of the failure of Wilkinson &
Bros., of Syracuse, N. Y., with liabilities ranging
from $4' 0,0 TO tq half a million. This news had
a demoralizing effect on the market, and for a
while pelling was very brisk, Pftdings were at
tended with considerable excitement, bat by 12:30
this had died entirely out and the market was
stcalier with better support. About 1 o'clock,
how ever, the pressnre to sell some of the loads
was renewed and continued with but little in
terruption to the clse. Lackawanna continued
the feature, some Large blocks for both long and
short accounts coming on the market Tho beam
hadfnll sway and frustrated every attempt on
the part of the bulls to check the decline by
vigorously attacking more prominent stocks. At
the close the lowest figures of the day wen made,
the market closing weak and demoralize!. The
decline- a romiared with yesterday's price
ranged from H to 8U per cent-, the latter in Pwk
awanna. No further failures or tronbles were
reported during the afternoon. The selling of
Lafkawanna to-day was said to be for the ac
count of insiders, and heavy unhiding gave rise
to rumors of impending trouble in coal pool,
bnt none of the report could be traced. Iwke
Shore, Northwestern. St, Psnl & Omaha shares

yoth of hieptember, the time w hen the body
waa re-exhumed; the brain wax taken out
and put into a jar and given to Mr. Johnson;
I was there with the jury the second time;
the Kirne process of rinsing the jars w&4
Uhed as at the first time.
Cross-examined Did not Fay the jar were
sealed with wax; the string was waled to the
jar over in the little hotel; never agisted in
Fuch an examination before, and had no ex
lerience in arenical oisoniDg casea except
what I learned from books; the nearest casea
of the kind I liandled were in the dissecting
room; had no experience with a body before
that had been in the grave 60 long; I think
the rectum was not red; do not remember
whether I testified in the Circuit Court of its
redness; have testified twice before this as to
the fiize of liver taken off; now testify the
amount was about a pound; didn't think the
evidence in regard to it w important; am
now convinced; didn't handle any of the or
gans, examined with the eve; I mean by the
lungs appearing in a healthy condition that
the air cells appeared w, from what I eaw of
their inside, and from several incisions; also
made incisions in th heart; did not make
examination of the ppinal cord; the brain
was so decomposed did not examine it; the
second discnterment was made toward 7
o'clock; I think Mr. Dans wa present; the
object of second disenterment--( objection
raised by the prosecution) don't know
special object except to take out the brain;
can't Fay I acted as medical expert for prose
cuting attorney, but as adviser, answering
his questions put to me. (Objection raised.)
The defense stated to tho Court here, that
their position was that the prosecution made
the second examination of the corpse with a
knowledge of the claim of the defense that
the arsenic was introduced after death; that
proper care was not exercised by them; that
the defense would show how much care was
exercised, thus affecting the credibility of
the witness, and that if a proper examina
tion had been made, it would have shown the
presence of arsenic in the body did not re
sult from any other causes. The prosecu
tion denied the assertion of the claim being
made at the first, that arsenic had been used
in embalming the body, but that strychnine
had been said to have been used, and when
the tests found arsenic and no strychnine,
the defence wanted to claim they had Raid
arsenic. The claim of the prosecution is that
tho symptoms, manner of treatment and
the arsenic so found phows it was used be
fore death. Counsel for the defense claimed
the second exhumation was merely a fishing
for evidence. In reply, the prosecution
said, that -such a position, and of
of arsenic having been used to em
balm the body had not been taken
in the previous trial, until after the trial was
half over; they had had difficulty at the
former trial in formulating a hypothetical
case that had been ruled uin adversely by
the Supremo Court, and it was to avoid such
rulings that they wanted tlus evidence now
ruled out The Court in admitting the
question, "Is it not a fact that tho brain and
muscle was removed for the purpose of trac
ing the presence of arsenic?' said that the
infallibility of the Supreme Court would be
recognized upon any point it has passed
upon, but this court can't assume that the
facts now to bo presented will be the same
a3 at the former trial. Thi trial is d novo
in which tho evidence may be entirely new
and it cannot be assumed it will be identical.
The question was read.
Witness I presume that was the pur
pose." Re-direct Both cans used for holding the
parts taken were of the Fame size; Mr. Davis
was there I think. (Tho prosecution receiv
ing some uncertain or indefinite replies,
counsel for defence remarked to the oppos
ing counsel: "If you are trying to show that
the witness's memory is unreliable, we are
willing to concede that.)
