CALHOUN was born in South Carolina. t No man of his time 'exercised a more commanding influence over the destinies of ,the young republic which he ,served so ably as Senator, Vice President and Secretary of War, It was largely in response to his resistless eloquence that war was declared against England in .1812. / MANY GENTLEMEN in want of a suit or Overcoat are often carried away with the idea they must get their apparel made to order to fit well. This idea is one of the past. We can sell them better goods, fit better and at a saving of from 25 to 30 per cent. from the so-called merchant tailor made garments. We will convince you to your satisfaction, and you will never order another suit from sam ples and take the risk of getting something' much inferior, and at an increased price than you can buy at home.

Manla for Iarrylag, Then Abandouling or Killing the Women--Boodling Ex traerdlneary n Chicago,. Lrvaimroon, March 17.--To-day a gar doner. who lives next door to where Will lams had lived and where the bodies were found yesterday, recognized the eldest body as that of a woman he had seen in the liack yard of the villa Aug. 9, last. August 10 he heard the children screaming, but paid no attention, thinking perhaps sotve of the children had been hurt. He never saw the woman or the children afterward. ' Another man recognized the body as that of Mario Deeming, who had been in the employ of a Liverpool fishmonger. Williams married her under the napse of Deeming, at that time describing himself as a mining engi neer. Williams and wife afterward went to Hull, where Williams was arrested, con victed of forgery, and sentenced to one year's imprisonment. On being discharged he married a young woman in Hull, but soon deserted her and returned to Marie. Accompanied by Marie, Williams went to Capetown, then returned to Birkenhead. The man believed Williams was the same individual who married a young lady .named Matheseen at Beverley in 1890, as suming the name of Harry Lawson. He then described himself as a large farmer in Australia. He gave a number of valuable presents to Miss Matheson, deserted her and absconded to South America. Miss Matheson swore out a warrant charging him with the theft of the presents he had given her. He was arrested in Urugua, brought bRck to Hull and sent to jail nine months. During the time he was in prison it was ascertained that he had married and deserted a lady in Birkenhead in 1888. The more facts brought to light the stronger grows the belief that Williams is the most oonsummate, cold-blooded villain this or any other country ever produced. The police believe he committed other murders. The excitement caused by the discovery of the bodies yesterday shows no signs of abatement. It has been learned that Wil liams' proper name is Deeming. He has a brother who resides in Birkenhead, and who was summoned to attend the inquest to-dayv on the bodies of Mrs. Deeming and the four unfortunate children. He bears a striking resemblance to the murderer and had a narrow escape this afternoon from lynchinh at the hands of the 'crowd. The :nurdeier has always been of a restless dis position. iHe married thisi votnari, Marie James, in 1880, and she accompanied him to Australia. They remained in that coun try a number of years and returned to E..g land July last, bringing with them four children. They remained with her sister until their mysterious disappearance. A despatch from Melbourne to-night mays Williams, or Deeming, is expected to reach Peyth to-morrow, where he will be re manded for court proceedings. COLOSSAL BOODLING. Disclosures of Corruption in the Chicago City Council of Unprecedented Jxtent. CHICAGO, March 17.-As a sequel to the recent passage by the city council of an or dinance granting permission to the Chi cago Power Supply and Compressed Air company to use the streets and alleys of the city in about any manner it sees fit, the in. dictment of a number of aldermen by the grand jury for alleged boodling is prom ised. The City Press association to-night anys. "B.ibery of the most flagrant kind will be shown. Corruption and rottenness beyond the ideas of the most cynical citizen will be disclosed, and facts which make a position in the Chicago council one worth the hundreds of dollars of preliminary ex penditure will be shown up. To-morrow evidence will be presented to the gland jury showing beyond doubt that certain aldermen have been paid liberally for theirvotes. The jury will listen to a tale of rottenness and corruption to which the boodling of Cook county commissioners was nothing." Evi dence has been in prenaration for some time and a mesh now enclosse some of the city fathers from which there is little hope of escape. It includes the confessions of several guilty parties, which are said to be very circumstantial. The men who have been working up these cases siared no ex pense and made sure of every step. They have witnesses who have seen large sums of money paid by rerresentatives of corpora tions to individual aldermen, and who have heard aldermen piomise to cast their votes on certain measures in a certain way. Some received money at their homes, some were paid in the precincts of the city hall, and two are said to have sold their votes in the lobby of the council chamber, The investigation, it is said, will end only when several of the present members of the council are wearing stripes in Joliet. States Attolney Loonnecker said this eve ning that he expects to show that the Com pressed Air, Northern Pacific and Economic Gas ordinances, thleo of the most important measures which have passed the council for a long time, were gotten through by the purchase of votes for hard cash. "I don't mind saying," said he, 'that there will be the biggest upheaval ever seen in this city when all the facts ale finally made public." Mr. Loonneoker added that lie would be aided in the matter by three or more prominent attorneys in the city, they having been employed by local newspapers, who had men assisting to make out the ease against the boodlers. The state's atterney also said several al dermen would assist in the inquiry. In ad dition to those who have confessed that their votes were purchased, 'several will testify to having been approached, and others will tell of colleagues who openly boasted of receiving money. One alderman openly stated that he was certain that al most every alderman favorably connected witbh the ordinances named above was guilty of receiving money for his vot-e. 'his alderman sarid it is generally admitted that it requires money to get an ordinance through the council, and many members make no secret of the fact that they will not vote for any ordinance unless re warded for so dloing. , In some cases the reward is in the shapl. of a trade in votes, supporting some improvement in the alderman's ward, but in by far the greater number of oases the consideration is hard cnsh. The gentlemen who are behind the prosecution issued an official statement to night, which says in part, that the proof acquired relates largely to various boodle ordinances and entangles four or five alder men in a way that it will be very easy to show conspiracy. "We will have no dlifll aulty," says the statement. "in indicting and convicting several well-known aldermnen. Itise aot our desire to convict only aldorlnell, however. We desire also to punish those i guilty of bribing councilmen, and we will not stop this investigation until they are I brought to justice, no matter to whose door incriminating evidence leads," Gen. Iseb, foreman of the grand jury, safl to night that they will begin the rnvestigrlou Odorrow; that they hiave a complete chain of evidence forged around the boodles and any who do not tell the whole truth im mediately will be arrested for perjury as well as bhodlin, Headded that some of the men, who will undoubtedly be indicted, have heretofore been supposed to be, above such practices, DEl MOItiES' VICTIM. The Marquis, Formerly of Montana, Fa tally Wounds 1. Isaac, PAnis, March 17.-The duel betweenu.Mar quis de Mores and M. Isaao seems to have been deliberately brought about by the former, to gain popularity with the soelal ists, by drawing a challenge from the man charged with having their comrades shot down at Fourmiss. The marquis wrote a letter arraigning Iseaac for the Fourmies af fair, whereupon Isaacsent a friend to chal lenge him. "Monsieur le marquis," began th4messenger. "Do not call me marquis," exclaimed the new-fledged Jacobin. "I am a citizen; one of the people." The messen ger delivered the challenge. "Tell Isaao," replied the marquis, "that one of the peo ple is ready to meet the man who slaugh tered his brethren; that he chooses swords for weapons; and the duel will be fought to the death." From the first the marquis pressed the fighting. Isaac held his own bravely, but was no match for the skill and impetuosity of his antagonist. The marquis evidently meant to kill; and Isaac knew it. It was by a skillful feint that the marquis succeeded in disabling his man. He inade a thrust as if at the left breast, and as Isaac made a motion to parry the blow, the marquis, with almost inconceivable swiftness, struck fiercely to the right, plunging his weapon into Isaac. The latter staggered, the blood pouring from his wqund. He held on to his sword and made a motion as if to at tack the marquis again. The latter stood calm, and turning to his second asked for a cigar. This was handed him, and lighting it he quietly smoked while the condition of Isaac was being examined. The attending surgeon pronounced the wound danger ous, possibly fatal, if not speedily attended to. They staunched the blood and advised that Isaac be conveyed at once to some place for treatment. Isaac staggered to his seet and insisted on continuing the fight, "It was to be a duel to the death," he said, "and must go on." The aeconds held a consultation and decided to stop the fight, evidently to De Mores' disappoint ment. The socialists are making a hero of the marquis. Isaac is said to be in a crit ical condition. THE BRUTE BROKE DOWN. Distressing Scenes on'the Scaffold Frome WVhich Schneider Swung. VIENNA, March 17.--The execution of Franz Schneider for the murder of servant girls, took place early this morning. But little interest was taken in the affair. The approaches to the law court in Landes geoicht strasse, where the execution took place, were strongly guarded, and but eighty spectators were permitted to view the execution. When.Sohneider apnroaohed the gallows shortly after seven his strong frame trembled and his face grew ghastly pale. .Itwas evident that his brutal nature was subdued, and that he was in agony and fear of the fate awaiting him. While beh ing pinioned at the'gallow3 he truggle< and hefh ed, :Oh, no! In God's name I'll say anything!" The noose was quickly thrown around his neck.,and as he swung free two assistants grasped the hanging man by the arms and legs and pulled down ward with all their strength. bchneider was strangled to death in four minutes. No cap was used and every expression and change of color in the man's face was dis cernable. It was so horrible that the spec tators were compelled to turn away. Rosa lie Schneider, the wife of Franz and party in his crimes, is serving a sentence of life imprisonment. Did He Offer to Kill Terry? DUBoiQUE, March 17.-It is suggested here that the ex-sheriff, alleged to have been offered $25,000 to kill Judge Terry in Cali fornia, may be Tom Desmond, a native of Dubuque. He was elected sheriff of San Francisco during the days of Dennis Kearney and has had a sensational life. He was the leader of the party who rescued the Fenian prisoners from New bouth Wales. It is said he left California be fore the Terry murder, and had never returned. Who Slew Htanker Me'ade? WAPwACA, Wis., March 17.-Sensational evidence is being unearthed by the grand jury investigation of the murder of Banker Meade.

LONDno, March 17.-The appeals made to the home secretary to grant a reprieve in the case of Charles Rayner and Frederick Eggleston. poachers, condemned to death for the killing of Joseph Crawley and Will iam Puddephatt, game keepers on the Pitt son estate, were of no avail and conse quently the mten were hanged at eight o'clock this morning. FOSTER ON THE SPREE. The Secretary Arrives at New York O'Dollovan RIossa Snubblled. NEw Your, March 17.--The steamer Spree, with Secretary Foster on board, drooped her anchor at quarantine at two o'clock this morning. The secretary was met at quar antine by the steamboat Laura M. Stern and brought to the city. Driring the sea voyage the secretary was thrown from his chair, striking heavily on his head and suse taiting a seve:o shok cund blackening his rightt eve. He is otherwise in good condi tion, The secretaty save he never uner the term "flannel-mouthed" or "clam-mouthed" Irishmen, as attributed to him in London. lie said the story probably grew out of a conversation with friends in which he ro ma keid the greater ease with which de scendants of Irish and (ierman immigrants becamte Armericanized than Scandinavians, DIanoe and southern Europeans. (')Don novan Rlossa called at the hotel to take the secretary to task about the alleged term, hut Foster refused to see him. Never Said "Flannel-Mlounthed,."

IIT WAS A PLEASANT TIP General Charles S, Warren Shows a Bit of Paper" That Brought Great News. Harrison in the. Lead But Hia Nomination by No Means Certain. Federal Office Holders Should Be Barred From the List of Delegates to Minneapolis. "WASRINCTON. March 14, 1892.-Gen. Chae. 8. Warren, Leland Hotel, Chicago: Juda ment below affirmed. CURTIN & BURnETrT." It is a long time between telegrams that are worth $100,000 It word, and yet that rep resents a comparatively small part of the value conveyed by the above message to Gen. Chailce S. Warren, of Butte, and other plaintiffs. Every one of thegeneral's legion of friends was more than glad to learn of his good fortune, and all join in hearty congratulations to a good friend and a good fellow. He stopped over in Helena last evening on his way home, visited the Montana club, received the good wishes of his Helena friends and, like all Butte people in Helens, retired early to bed at The Helena. He showed the yellow colored telegraphio me mento to an INDEPENDENT reporter last evening and tried to tell of his emotions when he read it. A group of Chicago news paper men were near when he tore open the envelope. and it is needless to say that a love feast followed. "The story of this litigation would fill T.H INDEPENDENT to-morrow," said the general. "It has been a struggle for nearly twelve years, but the supreme court of the United States has settled it. You are sur prised at the delay? It is to be remem bered that we have been fighting one of the biggest corporations in the world and they have had no end of money to delay matters until it has been hard picking for the rest of us. The gist of the controversy is this: ' The property involved is a claim called the Comanche, adjoining on the east the Mountain View mine, the Boston & Montana's big producer. It also joins General Leggatt's Gambetta mine on the west and the Colusa on the south. It is perhaps 100 yards from the Montana Central rail road. We have a shaft down 300 feet and are iq sixteen feet of copper ore. No de velopment has been done within a year or hardly during the litigation aside from rep resentation.. The original title of the suit was David W. Upton et al. vs. James Layr kitn. Larkin jumped the property and en deavored to secure a United States patent about twelve years ago. His interest was afterward transferedd to the Boston & "Motlfna eomipnty, ' while Upton's inter 'st came into the possession of one com pany of which P. A. Iargey is president, N. J. Biolenbuig, vice-president, Lee Man tle, treasurer, and myself secretary. Howard H. Zenor, of Deer Lodge, is also an owner. We have been carrying on the suit ever since and h ve finally won. It is certainly a great claim. General Bannister told me this evening at the club that he considered it the best undeveloped copper property in the United States. A syndicate of Chicago and Detroit people submitted an offer of $300,000 for it before I left Chicago." During his three months trip east the general has had unusual opportunities for watching the current of politics. He has attended to his duties as member of the republican national committee for Mon tana and has secured fine quarters for Mon tana's delegation and Montanians at the Minneapolis convention. They will find rooms at the beautiful Hotel Lafayette on Lake Minnetonka. a half hour's ride from Minneapolis, at the Holmes and Beaufort in Minneapolis and at the Aberdeen in St. Paul. Concerning political gossip in the east the general said: "As I have said often before, I am for Blaine, hut if his . letter or declination means that he will absolutely refuse the nominastion it lools now as though it would go to Harrison. This, however, is by no means certain. I do not believe Blaine can throw his whole strength to the presi dent. There is a decided movement to wards McKinley. He will undoubtedly have the Ohio delegation and probably that of Penneylvania. The Iowa delegation will be for Allison, while Michigan dele gates will be solid for Alger. It is difficult to say how any other delegations will be placed. President Hlarrison's administra tion on the whole has given great satisfao tion. He has protected the American flag, has given to Montanians home rule, and has administered the affairs of his office with great fairness. From all I hear of the other side Senator Hill's chances of capturing the democratio nomination are better than those of any other candi date. The Bland bill will undoubtedly paess the house. 1 am inclined to think it will be hung up in the senate until after both national conventions meet. Should the democratic convention dodge the silver question, it will probably be hung up in definitely. "During my trip east I met many MIon tanians in Chicago, New York and Wash ingtou. I may say that in the latter city I was particularly impressed with the cour tesy shown by Congressman Dixon to vie itors from this state. 1 know that among all representatives which Montana has had at Washington inot one ever commanded more respect, attended closer to congros sional duties or was more useful in the same period than Judge .Dixon." "I have been away a long time and so know very little about the political out look in this state. I am thoroughly con vinced on one point; that is, that no federal ofliceholders should be in the republican delegation to Minneapolis. These men have honor enough for the present and should be entirely willing to step aside and allow the convention tp select its delegates without any official interference. I have heard some tillk about this federal tVicer or that heading the delegation, but I am sorure e threpublicans of the state will agree that none should be included in the list."

To this gentleman Cleveland frankly confessed that he is sick of the littlenesa and bickerings and insults that ddily in fringed upon his private life; that he had made no efforts to secure the nomination, and nothing would induce hirm to eater the race. Cleveland's friends induced him to promise that the letter would not be given to the Associated press for twenty-four hours.
