explanatory of the Senatorial equa

never to submit to such a bold and In

We have the means in our bands to
prevent the success of such a ciime
against the popular majority, and I
am in favor of using them. There are
Republican Senators elected who
openly and shamelessly bought votes
with money paid out by their own
hands. They ought to be untested.
I know that we have an honestly
elected majority ot two in the Indiana
Legislature, sud I sm in favor of
maintaining it. There has been far
too much success in the past in such
nefarious work on the part of the Re-
fmbllcan party. I trust and believe
be Democrats of Indiana will give
them a lesson they will not coon for

strong snd inviolable nnder the
constitution and the laws as
the majority of forty-six, by which I
was elected two years ago, and Is to bs
maintained at all haaarJs. The trou

that a small majority presents a
tempting opportunity to steal it. It is
suggestive of a chance for political
Immorality The fact that only one

to play the rule ia to claim everything.
Instructions to that effect have been
passed around, snd they have been
followed, without the slightest know'
edge of their correctness, by a large
majority of the Republican pr?ssof
our Slate. Such claims cannot, of
course, ha made in good faith. There
is not the shadow of a possibility of
ths defeat of the Democratic party in
this matter, if the members of the
Legislature and the party generally
stand together firmly sud in harmony.
I do not allow myse'f to suppose for
an instant that they will do otherwise.
It will bs a disastrous day for ths
Democratic party if, through any
divisions or discontents, tbe Repub
lican party ia allowed to ovf rthrow ths
' legally ascertained majority of the
Legislature. I bave fall faith in the
honesty and courago of my party

verv many severe occasions.

"Whatdoyoa think of the action

It was a setious mistake. 1 do not
ssy ths provisions would meet my ap
probation. But while this govern
ment ia collecting moie tsxea than it
needs ti meet its legitimate expenses,
every honest proposition to inset such
an inexcusab e evil should bs fairly,
promptly and thoroughly considered.
We are lmmtdiatelr confronted by s
very ie:loua state efUo's. Here is a
large surplus of money in the Treasu
ry drawn irom ths people, and one of
tne problems is what ahall ha done
with it T And while it is thers idle
excessivs and euperflaom taxation is
still going on, Increasing the surplus
over and above what tbe government
needs for its actual expenses. This
state or auatrs cannot snd mast not
last. Every interest of tbe neonle and
every principle of free government
ana boneeiaaminisxrjtton demand its
correction. It is true that a few Dem
ocrats Vcted against ths consideration
of Morrison's bill, but it must not be
lorgotten tbat tbe Kepubllcau party
in Congress was practically solid
against it, and has proposed no
measure of its own. While
it is to be regretted thsi thers is divis
ion in ths Democratic party on the
subject, yet it will not bs overlooked
tbat the Republican party is a solid
obstacle to tariff reform, a reduction
of taxation and a redress of public
firievaocos. All talk about free trade
a idle and unmeaning at this time in
this country. I aland square upon
the Chicago platform of 1844. which
upholds the doctrine of tariff taxa
tion, but denounces the practice of
collecting any more mouey than is
necessary for the aotual expenses of
government whn economically ad
ministered. I regard this as the true
position for the benefit of all classes

manuuoturer himtwlf."

Who Shoots One of Them While
Entering Her Bedroom
New Tobk. December 28. k special
from Libreville, Pa., rays: The great
est excitement prevails here over trj.
merous outrages committed by a gang
of tramps who have infected f.his
neighborhood daring ths past few
months. These mi?ereaats entered
the residence of Jasper tjn ith lrst
Friday snd secured a lerge amount ol
cash, jewelry and clothing, livery
room m tho bouse with but one tx
csption bad been pillaged. Ths occu
pant ot tbis room was a sixteen yetr
old daughter of Mrs. Smith, who was
awake and beard ths tramps going
through tbe bouse, but was so over
corns with fesr that she was noab'e to
move or give an alarm. Tbe girl coon
recovered her courage and tuddenly
remembered that an old revolver be
longing to ber father was in one of
tbe bureau drawers. This she quickly
secared and then eha awaited the
tramps' entrance to ber room. The
door was quit-tly opaned, when tbe
brave girl flied two successive shcts at
the burglars. General eon fusion fol
lowed and the girl's parents hurriedly
rushed to the daughter's room to
find ber lying acrota tbe bed un
conscious. Tha trampe had escaped
but an examination disclosed
thst tbe shots wtre not without
effect. The girl soon recovered and
tben related tbe story of ber exploit
wlih the burglars. Blood stsins marked
ths bedroom & ior and stairsteps. A
bottle of chloroform was slto found in
the hallway, which they evidently
dropped in tnakUg their hurried
Several nights prior the home of an
aged couple, liviog some distance from
here, was entered, snd after forcing
tbe old lady to prepare something to
eat, tbey demanded their money or
thfdr lives. The old couple begged the
ruffians ta spare their lives, giving
them it, all the money in tu
house, similar stories coming from
all part3 of the valley, an indignation
meeting of cit sins was held here Sat
uidsy and a protective Eseociation was
formed. Information was received
that their rendesvous wis teveral
miles outs d of the town, and the
members of the PiOtective Association
resolved to raid the place. Ua tbe
way they met a suspicious character,
whom they to. in charge. Pre
parsiiona wsra assises to !;
wbeo the tramp, wh ch he evidently
wa, begged to bs heard. Ths stranger
said bis name ws Berger, and tbat
bit home was in New Turk State. "At
one time I was a prominent speculator
on Wall street. I lost and won, but
ill lack overtook me. Difsipat on
ollowed. Absolutely penniless, I
sough consolation in tbe tr Wis', but
misfortune continued. I came K tt
again with no batter lu:k. I contem
plated suicide, but rather than have a
hand in my own death, I docided to
live outmy miserable existence until it
terminated in the grave. At Elmyra
I joined some tramps who were work
ing their way through to Pennsyl
vania, We arrived here two months
ago," and trembling wi;h fear, he
acknowledged thst tbey met with
nnusual success. Cjntlnuing, be said:
"I took no active put in their crimes,
but was depnta id by tbe leader of the
gang to keep a reoord of what was
dons each day. For the peiformance
cf tbis duty I got plenty to eat and
any quantity of stolen clothing to
wear. The exttat of the robberies in
this neighborhood would foot op
many thousand dollars in caBh, to say
nothing cf ths jewelry, cloth
ing, eic, stolen. One recdesvous
is located three miles from here, but
lbs place is now deeerted. Every
member of the gang has disappeared.
Their sudden exit was brought about
through tbe fatal shooting of one of
the gang while burglarising a dwel
ling ia the neighborhood, and, lest
the occurrence might lead to their de
tection and arreit, they lets. Tbe
gang was principally composed of pro
fessionals. I am desertt d. and am
now en route to New York." A visit
t) tbe rendeavous corroborated the
story which was intelligently related.
Berger was a man cf education, but
was a total wreck Irom difslpation.

at Libreville and otber tramp udden

ot a neighbor, and she nsed to come
around his house. Yesterday White's
wife snd people were gone, and the
thild'a parents wtra absent. Sbecams

her into tho boute. No one was near

however, and s telegraphic dispatch
was sent here ai-king f r officer?. C. B.
McKiuDey, the Sheriff, and bis deputy
left instantly for Twobig. They
reached there late in tbs evening.
White is a roan who has many
friends. Ths officers were cautioned,
and went about their work with dne
sire. They approached White's house
quietly, and nuked if bs was in. The
doors were barred and they received
no answer. Approaching fomewhat
closer they siw the muazles of four
weapons protrude from the windows,
snd simultaneously four jets of flame
sprang forth, rour men, Wtiits's
friends, bad hidden tbemselves in tbe
home. McKinney had his weapon
oat, but had no time to ute It. He
was shot through the brain st the first
firs and fe'l from his horse a dead

gamely, but could do nothing against
Us concealed foes. He went down
ailed full of lead and was finally
dragged away by citlsscs of ths vil
lage. When the news of the killing
came up Cotulla went wild. A large
force of men Inetint'y volunteered for
service and Laredo was asked for a
special engine. The force went on
horseback, and up to tbis hoar no par
ticulars could be learned of their visit.
They said when they left hers that
they would rundown the murderers if
it took them a week.
