Af-sociated Press Dispatches.
Atchison, Kan., Oct. 10. —The presi
dent arose early this morning and when
St. Joseph was approached, he and his
party had only time to hastily take a
cnn of coffee before entering the city.
At the union depot an immense crowd
was assembled. Conspicuous in the as
semblage was Custer post of the Grand
Army of the Republic, which, drawn
up in line, made a passage for the
presidential party, and acted as their
escort until a neighboring hotel was
reached where a public reception
was held. As the president and
Secretary Tracy stepped on the
balcony in front of the hotel, Col.
A. C. Dawes, general passenger agent of
the Hannibal and St. Joe railroad, in
troduced them in a short speech, which
was received with cheers by the crowd.
The president thanked the crowd for
its cordial welcome.
At the conclusion of the president's
remarks, the party returned to the ro
tunda of the depot, where the president
shook honds with the crowd as they
filed through. At 7:30 the train pulled
out of St. Joseph amid the cheering of
the crowd. The run to Atchison was
made without incident beyond the
cheers of crowds at the depota as the
train went by. Atchison was reached
at 8:45, where a large crowd had as
Toi-eka, Oct. 10.—The stop of the
presidential party at Atchison was
brief. The president was almost buried
in flowers showered upon him by school
children.* Drief stops were made at
several other points, and Topeka was
reached at 10:30. Senator Ingalls re
ceived the party and Governor
Humphrey escorted them to
the state house, where they
reviewed an immense parade which
was over two hours in getting by. It
was composed of United States troops
from Fort Leavenworth,, state militia,
Grand Army and Sons of Veterans. The
Kansas G. A. R. is holding a re union
here, and there were nearly 30,000
veterans in line. They kept up frantic
cheering as they passed the
president. Quite a number of
them were old Indianans and members
of the president's brigade. When he
recognized many of them and called
them by name* enthusiasm knew no
After lunch the president received
many old veterans, the state and city
officials and prominent citizens. The
party then proceeded to the fair grounds
where Governor Humphrey delivered
an address of welcome. The president
responded at considerable length, thank
ing the governor and citizens of Kansas
for their generous welcome, and express
ing gratification at the evident prosper
ity on every hand. To the old veterans
he said he was more pleased than he
could express, to see so many of them
present, and hoped many years might
crown the brave defenders of the union.
Senator Ingalls, ex-Governor Anthony
and others spoke briefly, and then the
presidential party left for Kansas City.
Kansas City, Oct. 10.—The presiden
tial train arrived here at 5:45, under es
cort of Hon. William Warner, Mayor
Holmes and other distinguished gentle
men and committees. The presi
dent and party were driv
en the city somewhat,
and finally taken to the* Coates house.
Here a magnificent banquet was ten
dered President Harrison, Secretary
Tracy, the president's brother, John S.
Harrison, and the remainder of the
presidential party. Before the conclus
ion of the banrjuet, the'president retired
to visit the residence of his brother. He
is a much younger man than the presi
dent, and strange to say is a Democratic
politician. Before leaving, the presi
dent spoke brief!}', excusing himself,
saying in Conclusion, he hoped all the
dreams for Kansas City may be realized.
After his return from the residence of
his brother, the president was given a
public reception at the Kansas City
chamber of commerce. It was enthu
siastic, and thousands of people were
present. Hon. William Warner intro
duced the president, whom he said
would submit himself to any arrange
nient that the committee had made. Dur
ing the next hour the president was com
pelled to shake hands with the multi
tude, until he was completely ex
hausted, and then not half the people
had gained the honor they sought.
At 10 o'clock, the president and party
left for St. Louis.

JUSTICE MILLER OF THE SUPREME
He Fell in the Street While Walking From
the Court Chamber to His Home in
-"Washington—His Condition Critical.
Washington, Oct. 10.—This after
noon Justice Samuel Miller, of the
supreme court of the United States, was
stricken with paralysis, and is now in a
serious condition, though he is resting
comfortably and hhrmind is clear. He
was returning from the supreme court
room, and .when . within sight
of his residence, was seen
to stagger and ■ fall. His servant,
John Woodford, who saw him, quickly
got him home, and Doctors Cook and
Lincoln were soon in attendance. They
found that the left side of the justice
was paralyzed, but he was still able to
recognize these about him.
Dr. Lincoln lias just left Justice Mil
ler. He says his condition is not nearly
so favorable as it was two hours ago, and
his case is now very serious.
Judge Miller had been suffering near
ly all summer from an attack of dysen
tery, but at no time was his illness se
vere enough to prevent him from at
tending to his judicial duties while on
his annual court circuit in the west.
He returned to Washington last week,
feeling much better, though somewhat
weak. This morning he was feeling - un
The justice, in telling Mrs. Mil
ler of his fall, said he felt his
knee giving away under him, and his
legs felt so heavy he could hardly lift
them. Thinking it was a sudden return
of a rheumatic twinge, which he often
before felt, he made another effort tostep
forward, and as he did so he either
tripped on a car track, or slipped, and
fell forward on his left side and arm, at
the same time cutting his forehead
slightly and causing an abrasion
of the skin on the nose.
John Woodford, the justice's servant,
was standing in the door at the time, and
saw him fall. He immediately ran to
his assistance, and with the help of a
friend raised the judge to his feet, and
placing him in a cab, conveyed him to
his home. An improvised stretcher was
brought out, and though the judge pro
tested against being placed on it, he says
he felt perfectly able with assistance to
walk, heat last consented and was taken
gentiy to the terrace leading to his
house, and into the office on the first
floor. Meantime Mrs. Miller, who was
out visiting, arrived and find
ing the judge down stairs
immediately had him removed
his room on the second floor, though the
change was made unwillingly on his
part, as he insisted he was only slightly
weak and would prefer having dinner
down stairs, rather then in his bed
When the justice's bed room was
reached, he remarked: "Just place
the stretcher alongside of the bed,"
much to their surprise. Dr. Cook, who
lives two doors away, was called, and
Dr. Lincoln sent for. They administered
some slight restoratives, and after an
examination, found partial paralysis ot
the left side, from the arm down. The
numbness in the arm has now partially
At 1 o'clock this (Saturday) morning,
it was stated that the justice was rest
ing quietly, and the family thought he
was a little better.

- San Francisco, Oct. 10.—A Chronicle
Monterey special says: Yesterday af
ternoon Captain E. S. Josselyn, an ex
assemblyman of this county, left Monte
rey, as usual, for his home adjoining the
gardens of J lei Monte hotei. As he drove
up to the rear of his house, two men
suddenly appeared and ordered him to
halt. Josselyn attempted to jump from
his buggy, but tripped and fell to the
ground, the men firing two shots at him
as he jumped, both missing. Before he
could rise, the men jumped on him and
beat him unmercifully. They then
bound him hand and foot, taking about
$30 from his pocket. They locked him
in a room andjproceeded to ransack the
house. This done, the robbers returned
to him and coolly discussed the question
of murdering him. They finally decided
to spare his life. Leaving him bound
they cooked dinner and invited Josselyn
to join them, but he lefused to do so.
After dinner they lay around and en
joyed themselves until 3 o'clock this
morning, when they went away. About
daybreak Josselyn succeeded in freeing
himself, and gave the alarm. The rob
bers left here on the morning train for
San Jose, and are being closely pursued.
Should they be captured and brought
back, violence is feared, as the citizens
are much excited by Josselyn's bruised
and wounded condition.

San Diego, Oct. 10.—Mrs. Fry and
Miss Preston are neighbors in the town
of Perris, on the California Southern
railroad, north of this city, and they are
parties to a suit just ended in the su

given $1,000 damages against Mrs. Fry
for slander. The northern part of the
county has been all torn up over the
matter for several months. Both
parties to the: suit formerly lived
in Kansas. Miss Preston moved to
Perris, and a year or so later Mrs. Fry
came to the same town. Very soon re
ports were circulated which Mrs. Pres
ton did not like. She caused Miss Fry
to be brought before Justice Walter for
the purpose of signing a denial. This
Mrs. Fry would not do and repeated all
of her assertions to the judge, although
told not to do so. Suit was therefore
instituted. The defense was that the
cUmmunication to Judge Walter was a
privileged communication, but the court

Dublin, Oct. 10.—When the case
against O'Brien and Dillon, charged

was called at Tipperary thisjmorning,
neither of the defendants was present.
Both are members of the committee ap
pointed by the Irish Nationalists til
Dublin to visit America, for the purpose
of soliciting aid for the Nationalist
cause. The rumor is current that they
have forfeited their bail of £1000 each,
in the conspiracy case, and that they
sailed yesterday from Queenstown for
Later much excitement prevailed in
Tipperary when it became known .that
O'Brien and Dillon had abandoned the
defense and left the wlace. Confirma
tion of the rumor that they had left the
country, has been received. There is no
confirmation, however, of the report
that they sailed ftom Queenstown yes
terday for the United States. The in
formation thus far received states that
they did not leave by the ordinary chan
nels of passage. Their bail will be es
cheated and paid by the national league.
At the request of counsel for the
crown, a"court certificate of non-appear
ance was attached to the bail bonds of
Dillon and O'Brien. An adjournment
was then taken to enable the crown to
consider what steps should be taken.
