Associated Press Dispatches.
New Orleans, Oct. 22.—A colored boy
furnished today an important link in
evidence in the Hennessey case. Casparo
Marchesi, an Italian boy, arrested to
gether with his father and later released,
told a colored boy today that he was let
go because he turned state's evidence
on his father. The boy asserts that he
was instructed by his father to watch
for Hennessey's appearance in Girod
street, and whistle, then run to Poidras
market. This he did and was soon
joined by his father and another Italian
at the market.
San Quentin Escapes on Their Way
Back to Prison.
Chicago, Oct. 22.—Charles H. Thorne
and George Shinn were started back to
California tonight, in charge of two Cali
fornia officers. They were heavily
ironed and both shackled to the seats
of the railway coach in which they were
to make the journey. They are the pair
arrested in Chicago a week ago after the
period of liberty succeeding their daring
escape from San Quentin prison in
1887. Shinn took his return coolly, but
Thorne, who was under sentence for life,
seemed broken-hearted. He protested
earnestly that since his escape he had
lived honestly and would have continued
to do so. The California officers suspect
that the two men have been concerned
in some of tbe many robberisß which
occurred 6ince they escaped. Shinn and
Thorne deny this emphatically. Thorne
says a convict who was in prison with
them, and whose term has since ex
pired, saw them in Chicago a while ago,
and notified'the San Quentin officials.
This, he says, is how their capture came

Large Crowds Edified by the Sterling
Champion of Democracy—A Pleasant
Chat With Major McKinley.
Wooster, 0,, Oct. 22. —Governor Hill
left Canton for Wooster this morning,
arriving at the latter place at noon. At
every station along the route a large
crowd gathered and cheered Governor
Hill as the train passed. At Massillon,
Major McKinley, wno was on his way to
Smithviile, boarded the train and chat
ted with the governor until he reached
his destnation. On his. arrival at
Wooster an immense throng crrwded
the station, and the city was in gay hol
iday attire. Governor Hill addressed a
•monster open air mass meeting of eight
thousand people in the afternoon. He
spoke at length on the tariff question,
and also on the elections bill. Regard
ing the latter, he said nothing had taken
place in any part of the south to justify
the exercise of the doubtful power of
congress to regulate elections. He de
nounced the force bill "as a dangerous
exercise oi constitutional authority, a
menace to our theory of government,
and an insult to the people of the
Continuing, he said: ''The states
have always regulated their own con
gressional elections. They should be
permitted to continue to do so. The re
fusal of such a privilege is a policy of
force and partisanship. A mere recital
of the details of the proposed measure is
sufficient to make it execrable. The
tendency of such legislation would be to
provoke a conflict between the federal
and state officials, and race prejudices
would be engendered at the south. This
force bill » a vicious attack upon the re
publican form of government. Those
who affect to think the people do not
understand this issue, and are not
aroused to its importance, mistake the
signs of the times and the character
and temper of the American people. In
conversation with Major McKinley to
day, he told me that it was the inten
tion of the present Republican congress
to pass the torce bill before its expira
tion, no matter which party was suc
cessful in the coming elections. If they
do not carry the next election, you can
rest assured they will not pass the bill."
The governor addressed another au
dience this evening at the opera house,
and later left for Massillon.
An Old Citizen Murdered and Robbed by

An Incident of the Terrible Railway Dis
aster on the Cinoinnati & Southern—
The Trainmen Slept.
Cincinnati, Oct. 22.—From the story
of railroad meu who arrived here to
night, it appears that the wreck on the
Cincinnati Southern last night was due
to trie carelessness of the crew of the
freight train. This train was instructed
to wait at Sloan's Valley until passenger
trains 9 and 5 had passed. The wait
was long, and the crew of the freight
train went to sleep. Engineer Pimlott
awoke just after No. 9 had passed, and
assuming that it was No. 5, and that the
road was clear, aroused the crew and the
train went on. The approach to both
ends of the tunnel is sharply curved, and
within one hundred feet of the mouth of
it the trains met. Only the sleeper and
one coach on the passenger train were
saved, the train hands and passengers
pushing them back up the track. Flames
started a few minutes after the collision,
and the wooden lining of the tunnel is still
burning tonight. A brave man, whose
name was not learned, hearing the cries
of George Long in the baggage car,
seized an axe, cut a hole in the car and
rescued Long. In the express compart
ment of the car, was L. P. Ruffner,
United States express messenger. The
unknown hero worked hard to cut a way
for Ruffner to escape, although the
flames were darting all about him. The
effort was futile, and Ruffner finally
shouted from his prison to go away and
save himself, to cay good bye to his
family and tell them his would-be res
cuer did all a man could to save his life.
The unknown hero staggered put of the
tunnel with his hair and clothing badly
scorched, and felbdown in a faint. None
of the men in the excitement thought of
learning his name, but it is believed he
is a railroad man. Others of the train
men had wonderful escapes. It is mirac
ulous that any of the passengers escaped
without injury.

to have written letters to the Hays de
manding money. Mrs. Davis and hus
band came here from California.
