thia year Kolb issued an addrs;. s tat

after which his lea iers held a
conference As a result of this con
ference tneeting-s were called in
very county fur tha purpose of as
certaining' the wishes of the people
with reference to tiie alleged frauds.
A convention was also called at Mont
gomery for November, 12. says the
address, at which resolutions were
adopted to the effect that Kolb was
elected by the qualified electors; that
the will of the people wsset as de
through the agency of election man
agers and the county officials, aided
and abetted by a corrupt judiciary.
Kolb then says that last Saturday
when the legislature convenjl in
joint sesvion to count the votes for
state oflic-TS Senator Goo iwyn aroe
to SI a protest signed by forty-four
Populist m miwrs of th 5 lezislature

were committed when Spiukor Clarke
of the h .use told Goo.Hvyn ha was
outof order an I or d ere I him to take
his seat, calling upon the doorkeeper
to seat him.
The address then concludes:
"The official count, as declared by
the speaker, ives Outes a m joritv
of 27. 532. Election frau is committed
in the counties named in the protest
of Senator (ioolwyu, of wh en we

would be more than suPdcient to wipe
out all the majorit es claimed for

to the p ijits who have efiven me

The arrest of Kolb for treason is
not improbable and if his fo. lowers

there has been no correspondence

Dreadful Work of a Demented
!Ian at WellsriUe, Mo.
Kills His Mother, Sister and
Brother Then Himself.
One Sister Escapes by Jumping
from a Window.
Mextco, Mo., Not. 20. Early yes
terday morning- a horrible tragedy
occurred near Wellsviile, a little vil
lage eighteen mild east of this p'atee.
Thomas Portertftieck, a Bohemian,
presumably in a fit of insanity, killed
his mother, a sister and a brother
with an axe. Another sister escaped
throug-h the window while he was
slaying- his mother.
After completing" the wholesale
slaug-hter the maniac threw a lamp
on the floor, lig-ated the spilled oil
with a match and committed suicide.
Sunday afternoon Portercheck was
discovered acting strangely and gave
indications that his mind was de-rang-eiL
lie labored under the hal
lucination that his neck was broken
and insisted that a physician be sum
moned. His relatives endeavored to
convince him of his error and tried to
get hi in to tro to bed. lie insisted on
sittin.se up all night.
Late Sunday nig-lit the family re
tired, leaving- Thomas in a rocking
chair. At 3 o'clock yesterday tnorn-ing-
his sister Mary was awakened by
an agonizing- scream from her mother.
When she emerc-ed from her bed
room she found her mother lying- on
the floor, while Thomas was standing
over her brandishing- an axe. The
floor was covered with blood, and
from an adjoining- room the otner
brother, James, could be heard moaning-
in the agony of death. The gdrl
ran through the house, and finding
all the doors locked, opened a win
dow and jumped to the grcund. She
remained at the window and as her
brother Thomas made no attempt to
follow her, she stood and watched
him at his murderous work-.
The maniac seized a can of
coal oil and after pouring- it
over the floor and furniture, set
it on fire. He then drew a butcher
knife across his throat and fell by
the side of his mother. The poor
girl attempt -d to extinguish the
lames, but they spread so quickly
that in less than ten minutes the
house was a mass of fire. The
screams of the gdrl awakened tiie
neighbors and they rushed to the
scene, but the flames had alraaly
finished the work which the maniac
had commenced. When the blazing
timbers had cooled sufficiently to
allow a search of the ruined home
four bodies were found blackened
and charred. They were those of
Mrs. Portercheck. her youngest
daughter, and her sons, James and
Thomas. Investigation showed that
the mother, daus?nter and son James,
had ben horribly mutilated bv an
axe. It is believed that Thomas bad
first killed his brother, then h s sis
ter and mother. It was probably hi3
intention to kill his sister Mary also.
The mother h id been an invalid for
twelve years, and had been confined
to her bed dur.ng- that time.

Washington. Nov.- 2a In the su-

j handed down in several cases
involving- rights of Indians. In
two of these cases the ques
tion had been raised whether the
j Delaware and Shawnee Indians were
j entitled to any part of the proceeds
of lands owned by the Cherokees.
j The decision in both cases was deliv
ered by Justice ' Brewer and was to
i the effect that the Shawnees and
Deiawares having been absorbed by
the Cherokee tribe, were entitled to
equal benefits from such sales or
from the proceeds of the othersimilar
transactions of the Cherokees them
selves. The money Bought by the Shaw
nees and Deiawares is about 2,000,
003 which they claim is due by rea
son of the sale of the Cherokee strip
in the ownership of which they joint

Memtcis, Tenn., Nov. 20. The
prosecution of Ned Smith and W. S.
R chardson, charged with the lynch
in? of six negroes near Millington,
Tenn., in this county, last August, re
ceived a severe setback yesterday
when Butch McCarver went on the
stand and stated that he is an infidel,
and was therefore incompetent, under
the laws of Tennessee, to give testi
mony before a jury in a capital one.
Butch McCarver is the man on whom
the state mostly relied for a convic
tion, as he was invited, previous to
the occurrence, to take a band in it.
Immediately after McCarver's sen
sational statement in the court he
was arrested on a bench w :rraut,
charged with perjury. It is also
given outby Attorney General Patter
son that he will immediately proceed
ag-ainst A. J. McCarver, the sheril?
of the county, and the father of
Butch, to remove him from office.

troops of the Seventh cavalry,
where he was met by four troops

Chicago, Nov. 20. The Western
Passenger association, as it has exist

day when the Rock Island, Alton and

Withdrawl from the association. The
passenger association has for seme
time been in a very bad way and
there has been much dissatisfaction
on the part of the members with the
agreement under which they were

The Taste For It Spreading: la Enrope.
Sentiment and Science Agjainst It.
Hippophagy, or, to epenk less euphemis
tically, the habit of eating horseflesh, H
spreading in Europe. While savage man
Is known to have sated his ravenous hun
ger on horseflesh or any other variety cl
ilet-h he could find, tho modern origin ot
this peculiar taste dates from the siege of
Paris during the Franco-Prussian war,
when the populace were compelled from
dire necessity to sacrifice this noble quad
ruped to sustain life. Many acquired a
tatte for the meat, and the demand fot
it did not cease with the capitulation ot
the city.
It was to be seen on sale at many o
the butchers' stalls and ha8 been ever feincs
a staple article of diet for thousands of the
poor of the French capitul. For horse
flesh is much cheaper than beef. Beef in
Paris Is worth 20 cents a pound, vhile
horseflesh can be had for 8 cents a pound,
which affords a reason why the barbrou
custom should take euch a firm hold upon
these people when once neoosnity gave il
Once planted In Paris, the practlcs
spread to other continental cities, especial
ly to Berlin, where horseflesh is now con
sumed in considerable quantities by the
poorer classes, and tho medical authorities!
and humanitarians are raising their voices
against what they justly consider a bar
barous and dangerous custom.
The medical men warn the eaters ot
horseflesh that the hort-o Is peculiarly lia
ble to the disease known as trichinosis,
also found in hogs, and while cooking
generally destroys the germs of this dis
ease it cannot always bo depended upol
to do so. Tha disease is friphtfully fatul
In its effects and baflles medical skill.
The humanitarians take the ground cl
sentiment, urging the almost human af
fection of the horse and the close compan
ionship he has shared with man since the
dawn of the human race. A base, return,
they deem it, to slaughter and eat this
noble croaturo. In spite cf theso warnings
and protests hippophagy is on the increase
in Europe. It has not yet reached Eng
land, nor is It likely to as long as tha ro.-if t
beef and mutton of Australia and New
Zealand last. Still, if tho aentlmentiil
Britishers are too squeamish to eat their
horses, they are not too squeamish to f( II
them to the continent to bo eaten. Quito

At a ball the introductions should be
distinctly formal. Handshaking is not
correct, and here aain common senso

A Polyglot Beggar.
If when walking on any of the cross
Streets in the vicinity of Graca church you
hear a mumble of jargon at your shoul

a 6tout, sodden faced young fellow, you
may know that you are in tho hand of
the polygot bengar. As soon as he fines
that he has attracted your attention he
ranges alongside and fires a German
broadside at you. You shako your head,
and he brings a French volley into play.
Another shake of the head, and he rakes
you with Italian. All theo failing, he
hauls down his foreign flng and boards
you with the question in broken Knglisb.

you into the snug haven of a doorway and
starts to spin his yarn of the storms and
shoals of the great city.
