Mothers and
Men like to buy at Goldberg Bros, because
they always filed an' assortment of what they
need whether it be a pair of overalls or a fine
' suit there is always an amply supply of the de
sired size to select from.
Mothers prefer to trade at Goldberg Bros,
because they are always sure of being waited
upon by polite attentive salesmen who under
stand their business, know their stock and how
to satisfy the mothers.
Boys say Goldberg Bros, is their favorite
because suits bought there wear well and look

The Murderers of Conductor Owens
and Officer McGrath Narrowly
Escape Lynching.
By the Associated Press.
Chicago, Aug. 25. Two deaperadoea,
Will Lake and H. F. Gordon, who shot
and killed Fat Owena of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad at Deer
field last night, and a few hours later
shot and probably mortally wounded
Officer McGrath at Mayfair, were ' sur
rounded and captured by the police in
Elk Grove woods near Desplainee river
at noon today.
The wanton murder of Owens and
the shooting of McGrath by these dis
ciples of Jesee James stirred up the en
tire community from Deerfield to the
city hall and not long after the report
that McGrath had been shot at Mayfair
came in, a genuine man hunt was seen.
Special officers in the employ of the
railroads, the city police and a central
detail of detectives armed with re
volvers and Winchester rifles hurried
by train to the place where the bandits
were supposed to have taken to the
woods, and the scouting parties fol
lowed every trail that promised to lead
to the hiding place of the murdering
train robbers.
Citizens in the neighborhood of the
Higgins woods, near Dispiaines, piloted
bands of armed men across the country
and the determined officers with
countrymen for guides searched untir
ingly until the capture was effected.
The arrest was preceded by a veritable
battle. The robbers were well armed
and when a call from the scouting party
revealed their whereabouts they made
a determined stand. Cocking their re
volvers the two men waited until their
pursuers were in view and then opened
fire. It was returned by the officers
and volley after volley was exchanged
apparently without effect.
It is probable the men would never
have been taken alive had it not been
that their supply of ammunition was
short. As their stock of cartridges
dwindled away the desperadoes shot
more carefully and less frequently, but
the officers kept themselves well
covered until at last the men's bullets
were exhausted. The officers called
upon them to surrender but without
noticing the command the fugitives
turned and began a frantic race for
safety. The officers followed firing as
they ran. The chase continued until
Lake, who was in the lead, was struck
by a bullet. Thowing up his hands he
turned partially around and fell and a
moment later his companion dropped
BeriouBly wounded. The pursuers
quickly closed in on the fallen men and
hand cuffed them.
Within a few moments the prisoners
were carried towards the railroad sta
tion and were soon brought into the
city and locked in the West Chicago
avenue police station.
Lake, who is 24 years old, was shot
in the neck and his recovery is doubt
ful. He admitted shooting Owens and
McGrath. The conductor's watch and
other stolen valuables were found upon
the men. Gordon is 24 years old. He
was not dangerously wounded, al
though two bullets had struck him.
The men refused to give any informa
tion regarding their identity, but their
appearance indicates that both were
tough characters.
Block Coal Miners Organize.
Brazil, Ind., Aug. 25. The block

sion last night perfected a local organ
ization called the district block coal
association of miners. This order is
separate and distinct from the United
Mine Workers ot America and will set

without recognizing the old orders.

not get acclimated that day and for that
matter, neither did anybody else. She
presented a motion for a change of
venue and the doctor allowed it. He

The Appropriation BUI for Carrying
the Income Tax Feature Into
Effect Is Passed.
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Aug. 25. By neither
word nor sign has the president indi
cated his course with regard to the tar
iff bill. Without his approval it will
become a law at 12 o'clock tomorrow
night, the expiration of the constitu
tional limit of ten dayB, not counting
the two intervening Sundays.
The fact that nothing has been heard
from the White House today is regarded
as a sign that Cleveland will take no
action on the bill, notwithstanding he
has one more day in which to act.
It was feared by friends of the bill
that the numerous errors disclosed in it
and which render some portions of it
ambiguous, if not actually unintelligi
ble, would furnish him with a pretext
for stamping it with his disapproval.
The Appropriation for Gathering the
Income Tax Made.
Washington, Aug. 25. While the
senate was considering business behind
closed doors yesterday, there Blipped
through an important bill appropriating
$9,000,000 to carry into effect the in
come tax provision of the tariff bill
which has been held up under objection
for a few days.
This ends all controversy as to the
preliminary arrangements for collecting
the income tax.

The End of the Hermit of the
The decomposed body of "Frenchy,"
a character of Phoenix for the past fif
teen years, was discovered yesterday
morning in a hovel near the cemetery.
When and how he died no one -knows.
The body was undressed and lay on the
ground near the foot of a cot on which
he slept. A mass of caked blood' indi
cated a profuse hemorrhage as the
probably direct cause of death. Ver
min crawled over the face and a horri
ble Btench poisoned the atmosphere.
Justice Johnstone summoned a coro
ner's jury consisting of Andrew Barry,
James Rennie, Harry Chambers, T. W.
Allen, J. F. Meador," J. P. King, J. B
George and Dos Ray.
After the body bad been formally
viewed it was buried in the potter's
field and the inquest adjourned until
tomorrow morning.
Little is known of the dead man's
life. His real name was Geo. W.
Spences and he was about sixty years
old and served through the war on the
confederate side. He was given to
vagrancy and diasipation but he was an
inoffiensive character. During the last
year he has lived almost continuously
in the roofless hovel in which he died.
He made a pitiful attempt to raise a
supply of vegetables sufficient for his
A Frightened Team.
Mr. J. J. Badilla, a ranchman living
north of the city, complainB of a free
and eaey custom in vogue among hunt
ers. A few days ago he was in town
and started home on the Cave Creek
road. On the bridge over the town
ditch he met a couple of young men
with a gun, which they discharged.
Mr. Badilla's horses took fright and
ran away. He saw the uselessness of
trying to stop them so he resigned him
self to fate and the bottom of the wagon
and expected that the outfit would be
dashed to pieces among the cotton
wood trees which line the road. For
tunately the team was brought up
among a lot of mesquites and no harm
was done. This is the second occur

from their restaurant every day, and
that for several hours each day, people
can be found there waiting for seats.
These facts they have advertised for
sometime. But they will soon have
more room, the plans for their building
are already drawn. In the meantime,
every possible effort is being made to
accommodate the patrons of the place.
The highest prices are being paid for
the fastest and most competent waiters
and cooks. The proprietors are always
in attendance to look after the wants of
the people and everything goes to show
that the Pacific Grotto is doing every

seating capacity.
