Then follows an appeal to the workingmen, which says in part, "let this domineering autocrat know that while he may be enabled to employ 'scab' xabor, American society will refuse to eat his meats, when to do it is at the expense of human liberty and common jnstioe. We do not believe that his meat is as good as it used to be. We find that it is unpalatable, indigestible, put up under such circum stances, and are satiefie J that every loyal worker will share in that opinion. We therefore ask the assistance of all our friends." A special to the Inter Ocean from Fort Wayne, Indiana, says that at 8 o'clock New Year's eve, the fast express, bound east, un der high speed, struck a sled containing twenty young people who were crossing the track of the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago railroad, two miles east of this oity, en route to a country residence for the purpose of at tending a dance.

The gentlemen jumped out but the ladies did not succeed in doing this till too late. The scene just after the acci dent was heartrendering. A relief train was promptly sent to the scene with a corps of surgeons and the dead and wounded were properly cared for. Judge J. M. Jones and E. T. Hamilton, have decided the big Nickle Plate railroad case. Suit was brought against the New York, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad com nony by the Union Trust company of New York, trustees for the second mortgage bondholders, for $10,000,000. The court held that the first mortgages, held by the Central Trust company as trustees were il legal; that the bondholders under the sec ond mortgage are annexed creditors. The amount covered is? $15,000,000. The court has also ordered sale of the road under the second mortgage, which amounts to $10, 000,000. The -validity of the oar trust certi ficates amounting to $4,000,000 it affirms and the separate sale of the equipment under the certificates is ordered. It was claimed that the consolidation of the five state corporations into the Nickle Plate was illegal. The court declared the consolida tion was illegal in two respects, but the cor poration was a corporation de facto, and hud the legal right to execute mortgages. It was also held that neither the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railroad, nor the judg ment creditors of the Nickle Plate have liens by virtue of judgments, end their only interest is as creditors to the extent of their judgments. The decisionals a Vandeibat victory, and the ease will be appealed. The residence of till 'Tifliin mmfaihii ! JgJrt itlfliUL iif $7,000 aty? f JOHN A. LOGAN GONE.

The last public speech made by General Logan waa at the campfire at Youngstown, O., on November 18. Though needing rest, at the earnest solicitation of friends he came, and, though the day was most in clement, rode in an open carriage over the lice of parade, and was so thoroughly chilled that he remarked: "I can't stand cold as I did formerly." In the evening he was given an ovation at the opera house, and the re ception indicated the strong hold he had upon the people. Commander Eddy, o f Tod post, to-day wired a long message of condo lence to Mrs. Logan, and the post to-night selected a committee to attend the ob sequies. In the course of Gen. Logan's remarks during his speech in Youngstown, he said: "1 am often accused of saying things that policy would dictate should not be said, but I do not care as long as I am right. I be lieve in pensioning every Eoldier now living that went into the ,ser7ice, either for a long or short term, who was wounded in the ser vice or contracted disease, or has since. through no fault of his own, become dis abled, I believe in pensioning every soldier that haB crrived at the age of 62. Pass that kind of a law and justice would be done. Some may say it is too much. No, it is not. ihis country can n6ver nay the debt it owes the gallant men who went out in her defense at a time when the very life of the nation was assailed." Washington, D. 0., December 30. At the Logan mansion this morning preparations for the removal of the dead statesman's body was completed. The remains have been placed in an elaborately draped casket in the same chamber where the treneral died. A square plate of silver in the middle of the cover bears the inscription: JOHN A. LOGAN, UNITED STATES SEliATOB. Born February 9. 1626. Died December 26, 1888. At 11 o'clock, after the family had been alone with tber dead a few minutes, the coffin lid was fastened down and a garrison flag draped about the oasbet. A few close friends of the family then entered the room, and after prayer by the Rev. Dr. Newman, the congressional committee took formal charge of the remains. The sergeant-at-arms superintended the removal of the casket down the broad stairway,, between tre line of the uniformed e cort and its placing in the hearse. Fifes and muffled drums sounded, and at the word the hearse, prececded by the pastor's carriage, and sur rounded by platoons of Grand Army men, moved to the capitol. The interior of the vast dome was tastefully draped, and upon the spot where many who have made their mark in American history have lain m state, rested the bier prepared to receive the casket containing the remains of the dead senator. The bier is that upon which lay the remains of Presidents Lincoln and Gar field, Chief Justice Chase, and Representa tive Thad Stevens. The heavy black cloth with which it is covered was last used on the occasion of President Lincoln's funeral. A deep black fringe f allp from the edge of the bier, whoe sombreneas Is only relieved by the narrow bands of white which encircle it. Round about it were grouped masses of floral tributes. Ab the funeral procession approached the east front of the capitol the doors of the rotunda were opened and the assemblage uncovered and stood in respect ful silence. The president has directed that while the remains of the late Senator Logan are lying in state at the capitol the flogs on ihe pub lic buildings will be display d ,t half mast, and that they so remain until the conclusion of the ceremony. An order was issued ut the interior depart ment to-day allowing all members of the Grand Army employed in the department who wis-hed to attend tne funeral of General Logan to be absent all day. Chicago, Ilii., December 30. William Penn Nixun, treasurer of the Logan fund. sent Mrs. Logan $65,000 'as the result of the first day's -collection in thiB city for the $100,000 tribute. Washington, D. C, December 31. Sena tor Logan was laid to rest id the RookCreek cemetery in which the body will temporarily repose. It adjoins the United States sol diers home grounds, and is the oldest burial ground in the District, having been so used since 1719. A number of magnifi cent forest trees shade the ancient church. The vault is a plain, massive structure, with white marble front relieved by polish red granite pillars surmounted by Corin thian capitals.

The floral decorations were numerous and beautitul, completely cover ing the casket when placed in the tomb. Nothing occurred during the day to mar the decorum of the occasion, participants and spectators seeming to be inspired with a desire to honor by their presence the memory of the great dead rather than by idle curiosity or the desire to witness a gorgeous pageant.

Rumored Capture ot the Famous Express Bobber. Chicago, rtiii., December 29. It is stated that convincing proof of Height's complici ty in the 'Frisco express robbery is in pos session of Pinkerton, and there is no longer a doubt that Haight was ihe instigator of the crime, and that Weaver and Wittrock were his partners. They were ell three at one time residents of Leavenworth, Kan. liKAVENWOBTH. December 29. Shortly after midnight the detectives who brought Wittrock to this city left the Wittrock house with the prisoner and repaired to the hotel where they took a room 'and retired. While the two officers were atosent with young Wittrock from the house, Mrs. Wittrock. was induced by a Times reporter to tell what she knew of the case. She admitted that Fred had participated in tne robbery, but would be released, as he had, con fessed ah to the detectives. She said" that shortly after the robbery Oscar Cock came to Leavenworth and visited her one evening. He said that Fred made a huge earn of monev on a wheat deal in Chi cago, and had some difficulty with a broker over the matter; which, ended by' his .shooi ng the latter; that he had to Ate" from the ceomtry, and wanted bis mother tofateaare of the money until she heard from him fur ther.

Kansas City, December, 29. The Pinker ton party did not leave for St. Louis, as was given out but all remained here, and in ad dition thereto a detective arrived from St. Louis to-day bringing Oscar Cook. On reaching the boarding house where Cook had been living, a large sum of money was found concealed in beer bottles in the cel lar. Cook's brother became alarmed and handed the detectives over $800 that had been given him. The detectives believe that about a dozen persons, friends of the men in the east bottoms, received money, some borrowing it and others knowing where it had come from. The detectives are getting this back from those having it, who are glad thus to escape punishment. It is thought the detectives recovered about $10,000 here to-day, which with the $22,000 obtained in Leavenworth, $1,000 in Tennessee, and $7,500 in Chicago4 leaves only $10,000 unaccounted for. and of this probably $5,000 has been spent by the (jumy parties, at is saia mat a aozen rm& erton men are in the city working up the matter, and that some other arrests will be made. It is now learned that Robert Pink erton has been here most of the time during the past three weeks under an assumed name. A prominent farmer of Bowling Green, Howard Cottntj, Md., Mr. J.

Over $300,000 Saved to the SLite of Kansas. Topeka Kan., December 28. Attorney General Bradford has been very active in the matter of putting a stop to the wholesale stealing of school lands, which has been going on in Kansas for some time past. Touching this matter Mr. Bradford, in his forthcoming report to Governor John A. Martin, will say: ' Soon after I came into office, in January, 1885, 1 was informed by various parties liv ing in the western counties of the state, that fraud was being perpertated in the sale of school lands. I gave the matter my im mediate attention. In Ellis county I fonnd that 32,000 acres of land bad been advertised for sale upon petitions presented regularly ' apon their face, fraudulent in fact. In this way every acre of school land re maining unsold in Ell ib county was adver tised to be sold, after being appraised at $3 per acre, at the same time being worth from $4 to $6 per acre. The syndicate formed for the purchase of these lands would have purchased for $3 all of these lands. Tne Bale was enjoined. The injunction was made perpetual, and the land subsequently all sold to actual settlers at a profit to the state of $92,000. Like frauds have been perpetrated in Pratt county, Kansas, long prior to my coming into office. . T commenced a proceeding in the district courtof Pratt county to set aside the contracts made for the sale of 4,640 acres. Upon investigation I find that in Finney county 125,000 acres had been advertised pursuant to petitions presented in a like manner to the petitions in Ellis county, which sale I also caused to be abandoned. I have directed suits to be brought in var ious other of the western counties of the state, and have recovered large tracts of land from the clutches of the syndicates and speculators, which have since been sold to actual setters. It is safe to say that I have saved to the state by reason of the several actions brought and final'y determined, about $300 000, at an expense to the state not to exceed $1,000 to $1,200. To successfully prosecute these cases ex pense has been, and necessarily will have to be incurred, for which some appropriation ought to be made, the amount of which I have not ascertained, owing to the fact that the oases are still undetermined. Should the cases be successful an additional $100, COO will be saved to the permanent school fund, and, in my judgement, the state can well afford to appropriate $1,500 or $2,00, or so much thereof as may be necessary to defray the expense. After the experience 1 have and the inves tigation 1 have made, I think-! am sate in saying ihe permanent sohool fund of Kansas has lost at least $1,000,000 for went of prop er attention to the sale of school lands. Under the law prior to the amendment of 1886, frauds could be perpetrated and the perpetrators thereof be beyond possibly finding out. As the law now is school lands in unrecognized counties of the state can not be sold until three years after the coun ty becomes organized. .Settlers upon school lands must reside thereon and have at least $100 in lasting' improvements upon the land before he is allowed to purchase, and in ad dition thereto he must satisfy the probate court that he has no tv heretofore purchased school land, and that it is wanted by him in good faith as a home for himself and family.

It waa all about Xiientenaat Jennie Allen's experience at Kansas City. She was de tailed for duty at that ritadeTof wicked ness week before Isst, but returned with a big disgust a few days later and uua uara stones on tne leaders of the army there. The converts and rank and file began to lose interest in the soul saving bnsinese, "and to cap the climax, Capt Mary Wolf, the pretty little sold ier who has made the salvation business snch a success here, sent her resignation to Major -Levick, who is in command at Emporia. Last night Major Levick ap peared on the ecene to protest, and beg Captain Wolf to reconsider her resigna tion. He heard of a talk Lieutenant Allen had made, and during the devo tions proceeded to call her a lier. Then all was confusion. Lieutenant Allen pitched in and was giving Major Levick a fearful roast, when Captain Wolf lift ed her tnnefnl voice in "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." At this stage of the proceedings Joe Davis, of the Third street pawn shop, who has had his weather eye on Lieutenant Allen for some time, rushed up and offered to go for a shot gun. He was paralyzed with a look the Lieutenant declaring that she didn't want no gun, that she was able to do up the little whiffet Levick with her bare hands. Miss Sowers came to the assist ance of her friend Lieutenant Allen, and while the pair talked back when they could get a word in, or made faces dux the singing, the Audience laughed and roared. It was as good as e ohrcus, and ought to end the Salvation Army nuis ance here. Sedan Times: Charles Tabor, a school teacher, has been arrested, charged with cruelty, whipping a daughter of A. C. Jones, of the Spring Creek school dis trict. , As the case will be tried by Squire Henson, January 7, and we have not heard the testimony we refrain from comment farther than to say that ability to "whip and govern a school" is the chief essential with most school boards judging from the reasons given for near ly always preferring a male teacher. In a district joining the above, the lady teacher expelled a pupil rather than to whip, and an appeal was taken to the county superintendent on the plea that the teacher had no right to expel with out nVst trying the effect of the rod. It looks as though teachers were in the un fortunate position of being (damned if they do and damned if they don't." Arkansas Valley Democrat: We believe the proposition to amend the state school law so as to make the limit of school age from six to twenty-one, a good and wholesome one. The number of 5-year-old children attending our schools is too large. Nine-tenhs of the children of this acre would be far better off at home, as their minds are too tender yet for practical studies.- Alma Enterprise: When the marshal repaired to the bastile Thursday morn ing .to care for his happy 'family of six weary pilgrims committed? for drunken ness, he found the cage bracked and the birds gone.

Ellsworth Democrat: A woman by .the name of Wright, in this city, attempted suicide one night this week. She first tried to cub her throat with a case knife but failed because it was so dull.

C)ther towns beware Eskridge Home Journal: Waterloo has gone to law over their railroad bonds that was voted to the Missouri Pacific last spring.

This result has been reached by the wisdom of the nation in obliterate ingjall that recalls the civil strifes of itit early history. The war with Spain which ended in the victory of Trooadero. was also a sort of civil war in which the Latin of the north, without any reason whatsoever, let. his hand fall heavily on his brother of the south. The idea at Senor Castelar is to fqunda Latin alii-' ance on the community of interests unit ing Franoe, Italy, and Spain. A further bond of union might also be found in the common end at which three nation are aiming. The Spaniards, the Italians, and even the Greeks are by nature re publicans and theee countries are fated," by the mere force of circumstances, to become republics. A republic beyond the Alps, another beyond the Pyrenee, , and a third in the Grecian archipelago, will make cf the Mediterranean sea a veritable republican lake on which all the world may sail.
