A man wlio from his youth tip has fought the battles of Republicanism in a reeion where no hone of success could add vipor and zeal to the contest, and with no reward save the consciousness of having served the cause he loved. A man who has attested his love of liber ty and law, by service on the field of Rlory and of blood, who won his promotion in the plorious l'ennsylvania Reserves, from Cap tain to Brigadier, by meritorious service on the field. A man who stood in the red hell of battle at Drainesville, on the Feiiinsula, at Gaines' Mill, South Mountain, Antietam, Krcder icksburp, and the Wilderness, and who lxre witness with his blood, that he loved his country well. He bears upon his erson the ronph sears left bv the cruel cannon ball, and will car ry to his prave the evidence of his patriot ism and courape. He is able, and worthy to lead Republi cans to Victory as he led his rcjriment to war. Speech of Mlorrje;i Central Palmer, in HtjntUicaH State Conratiion. ELECTION! TUESDAY, M 8ft! Vote for Baily, Cessna and the whole Republican ticket Don't en courage treason to your party by scratching a single name. It is only a question of majority, friends 1 Cessna's election is assured, but he is entitled to a good, old fashioned majority, and it will be to our shame if he does not get it It is easy to see what party Mr. Wolfe is expected to serve, by the encouragement the Democratic pa ler3 give him, and every Republican vote for Wolfe is a half vote for Noble, the Democratic candidate. Twenty-five thousand in Ohio and City thousand in Iowa, is the size of the Republican majorities at the late elections. Now let us show them what we can do in Pennsylva nia. We can beat Ohio, if we will. The Republicans of Somerset county are urged to disrupt their party by voting for Mr. Baer, the Democratic candidate, just to gratify a few la-da-dah fellows who do not like Mr. Cessna personally, and know they cannot " run him " when he gets on the bench. We caution Republican voters against epurious tickets. The Re publican ticket with the name of William J. Baer on it is being circu lated. The attempt to obtain votes for Mr. Baer by this petty fraud, does not speak well for the high moral standard expected of a Judge. The next State Treasurer will be either General Baily or Orange No ble. McClure's Timet, which has been running Wolfe's campaign, now admits that his sole object in running is to defeat General Baily. The Republican who will sneaking ly attempt to defeat Baily by voting for Wolfe, would be doing a much more manly act by voting directly for Noble. While Mr. Baer is claiming in this county to be a non-partisan candidate, the Bedford Gazette is la boring to lash the Democrats of that county into his support as the Dem ocratic candidate. Now, can any good reason be given why a single Republican voter in this county should support this Democratic can didate, who himself never voted for a Republican, and whose party was never known to support Republican candidates? J CPAS Iscaeiot will be eternally infamous, notwithstanding his resti tution f the thirty pieces of silver and the expiation of his crime by suicide. "Benedict Arnold's name is associated with enduring scorn and detestation. Aaron Burr goes down on the pages of history covered with infamy and reproach. And yet there are as bad and mean men in our midst, who, imitating the exam ple of Judas, Arnold and Burr, are betraying the party they profess to honor. The Reiubieans of Somerset county never had a better or more manly set of candidates for its local offices than ihtnv for whom they are now asked to vote. It is the duty of every true Republican to vote a clean, unscratched ticket The President has appointed Judge Folger, of New York, Secre tary of the Treasury, Thomas L. James, of 'Jie same State, Postmaster General, and Frank W. Hutton, of Iowa, First Assistant Postmaster General. The Senate confirmed these appointments on Thursday last Ex-Governor Morgan, of New York, had been previously appoint ed and confirmed as Secretary of the Treasury, but declined the josition. Bkfoue the Democrat commenced flinging mud at Mr. Cessna, de nouncing him as a liar and falsifier, it ought to have made certain of its own facts. It asserts that Bedford county had the President Judge from 1SG1 to 1SS1. Doesn't it know that this is not true? Ict us ask it whether Judge Nill, of Chamlcrs burg, was not elected in 1 SOI ? Ed itors with such remarkably defective memories ought to be careful how they charge others with lying and falsehood. There is work to be done, Repub licans! and there is but one week left to do it in. It is the duty of each earnest Republican to do what he can to get out the vote. Remem ber always that the candidate repre sents the cause of Republicanism, and the men on the ticket embody its measures. lie that scratches a name on the ticket, strikes at the measures and the life of his party, and these involve :J1 that is essen tial to the prosperity and permanen cy of the Government No matter who is on the ticket the measures and principles remain the same. For these reasons we urge a straight vote. Because Mr. Baer had a majority of thirty votes in this county when he ran for Judge in 1S71, his friends profess to think he can secure one now. Then he ran against Judge Hall, a new convert whom nobody liked, and whose professions of Re publicanism nobody trusted, now, he is pitted against John Cessna, who has proved his faith by his works, and by years of labor in the party ranks. Hall has justified the more than doubts of his party integ rity, by taking this the first oppor tunity to play it false, and is now supporting Baer. This has intensi fied hostility to Baer. because a vote for him i3 not only an endorsement of his bitter Democracy, but also of Hall's treason to the party. While it is true that a man should not be held responsible for the acts of his fool friends, it is also undeniably true that a man is al wa3s judged by the company he keeps. Thus, Mr. Baer is unfortun ate in the new-born friendship of Ju Jge Hall, but he is personally re sponsible for keeping hi. company. Hall has damaged Baer in Bedford county by advocating his election, and grossly maligning Mr. Cessna, and he is now attempting to influ ence Republicans in this county to follow his lead. His malignancy has overrun all sense of decency and propriety, if he was ever pos sessed of any ; he is not only dis gracing himself, but bringing into contempt' the high office which he unfortunately occupies, and he is insulting the intelligence and shock ing the sense of propriety of every honest man in this county by his conduct Mr. Baer is fairly judged by the company he keeps, his sense of propriety, and of the dignity of the office to which he aspires, ia to be gathered from the tone and meth ods of his advocates, and he should be sternly rebuked at the polls for the indecent conduct of the Judicial Swashbuckler who is laboring to make him Iiis successor. Says Judge Hall in his letter urg ing Republicans to vote for Baer: " He (Cessna) belongs to the Cam eron ring, and is the head of the spoils system in this district So, so, " head of the spoils system " is good, coming from that source. Let us see. Hall, who was a bitter pro slavery Democrat, and carried the Bible with him to Democratic meet ings, wherewith to prove that slavery was a Divine institution, was beaten in a race for the Legislature by Hon. B. F. Myers, and at once turned tail upon his party and became a sudden convert to Republicanism, evidently in search of spoils. In April, 1SG5, he procured the appointment of Judge Advocate in the Army, at '.he rate of $179 per month, which posi tion he held for about two years. He was then made one of the Com missioners to codify the laws of the State, in which capacity he served letwecn two and three years, receiv ing therefor $19,000. In 1S70 he was appointed Judge by Governor Geary, and in 1S71 was elected for the term of ten years. Now, let us see how the account stands : WILLIAM M. HALL, To Spoils Da. To Joltr Advoaate S yean ij 17V per math. i.'JBfl 00 Oommiwkmer S or U,uuo U0 fretitlmt Judge 11 rears Q per year 47,300 00 Total spoils .V9,bvt 00 Isn't he a pretty fellow to talk about any one being at u the head of thi spoils system in the District ? " And doesn't this prove what a mis erable ingrate he is to the party that has kept him in lucrative offices for CAeen years, and this because it re fused to give him another ten-years' pull at the spoils, and allow him to cram $43,000 more into his rapac ious maw. Even now, he is in this county electioneering for Baer, deal ing out circulars and " stickers " for him, and attempting to dictate to honest Republican how they shall vote. Did any man ever make a more damning record for himself f Baku prates about being a non partisan candidate, and Judge Hall is dragging his judicial robes through thv mire, in his efforts, to help elect him. Birda of a feather will flock together. Hall is utterly disgracing the position he now holds, and judging Baer from hie associations, he would do no better. A clean, square man ' wouldn't accept dirty work at the hands of any one. This county has been flooded with copies of the Philadelphia Times, edited by that Model Re former, A. K. McClure. The Timet is a bastard Democratic sheet and advocates Wolfe and Baer. The highly independent Republan leader of this cour.ly, who had McClure furnished with the lists of Republi can voters who have received the Timet oughtn't to hide his modest head. Let him stand up like a lit tle man, own his act, and we will paint his portrait for him so unmis takably true to life, that his name needn't be written under it to secure recogn i tion. A iHii.iTifAL experience of many years has taught us that there are mean men, and mean men, and very mean men, but we have never en countered a man with the capacity for meanness of Judge HalL He is sui generis, and is entitled to the jack knife. This may be deemed harsh language. Jjet us explain : On the death of President Garfield, Judge Hall made a little speech from the Bench, in which he took occasion to declare that good men all over this broad land have arrived at the conclusion that "the spoils system of office by which an organ ized band of partisans, under the leadership of a Senatorial syndicate, made the possession of party power a means to their personal and indi vidual gain at the expense of the public good, and that the struggle for place that makes the offices of the government a reward for parti san politicians, and that the idea that he (Guiteau) had been rufused an office which he as a partisan de served, led him to the assassination of the President A declaration of this kind, made at the time, on so solemn an occa sion, was to say the least, in very bad taste, but when it is made ap parent, as it is now, that at the time of the Nation's sore distress, when mourners sat in every household, and grief was at every fireside, this man. who had been set upon a pin nacle to administer justice, while professing to voice the universal grief, seized the opportunity to lay the foundation for a base and malicious charge against one whom he hated, a charge to be used in the arena of politic?, can anything be imagined more contemptible, more derogatory to judicial dignity and common de cency. This speech, so made, on an occasion so solemn, has been printed thousands of it on slips, and with the envenomed passage mark ed so as to call attention to it, has been circulated through the counties of Bedford and Somerset accompa nied by letters of which the follow ing are samples: .Striclly Perromtl. Bebford, IV, Oct. 1SS1. Dk.ve Sir : Do you not think it would be a calamity to nut John Cessna on the Bench? He has tn-en for 35 years a political trickster noted for paining his ends by any means in his power without repard to conscience. It is onlv IS months since he misrepresented this District at Chicago, in bold delianoe of tiie popular will, He belonps to the Camer on ring is the head of the soils system in this District. The office is not political. The lext man should pp in without repard to arty. Mr. Baer is a good lawyer and would make a most excellent Judpe. For 11 years he has practiced before me and I nev er knew him to do an unfair thing. Cessna lias implacable hatred towards me, simply because as Judge I made him behave him self at the Bar. He intended to bolt my nomination said he would spend $5000.00 to defeat me. He wants to drive me out of the county. Is it not our duty to keep such a man from the Bench ? 1 hope you will so regard it. There are many Republicans in both counties who do. 1 write this for your own rye alone, in the confluence that exists between gentlemen. Yours Trulv, Wm. M. Hall. iilrictlg Pertvnul. Dear Sib : Do you not think that we should elect the best man for Judge without repard to party ? Mr. Cessna is a poltician ; the head of the Cameron ring and the spoils system. Besides he is mixed in all the law business of this county, and has strong friends and bitter enemies. It would be hard for such a man to make a fair Judge, and it would impose great expense on the tax-payers to get other Judges to hold Courts' Mr. Baer is a good man and will make a good Judge. Regard this as confi dential. Yours Truly, AVm. M. Hall, Observe ! In this speech it is al leged that a Senatorial syndicate fosters the spoils system, and this 6ystem led Guiteau, through disap pointment, to assassinate the Presi dent; and then in the letters it is charged that Mr. Cessna is the head of the spoils system in this District, ergo, Mr. Cessna, because of the spoils system, is measurably respon sible for the President's death. Observe, also, how this man who is disgracing the Bench by his un precedented conduct, aud his dirty personal abuse of the opponent who beat him out of sight in his race for renomination, spitefully prates about its being a calamity to put on the Bench a man, infinitely his superior in every way; how he strives to stir up strife in our party, and revive the differences buried with the nom ination of Garfield at Chicago ; how by urging the support of Baer he betrays the party to which he owes all he is, and how, after years of warfare on Mr. Cessna for the pur pose of breaking him down in his practice at the bar, so as to prevent him from becoming a candidate for Judge, he now spitefully whines, " He wants to drive me out of the county." Republicans ! this is the man who is attempting to defeat your regular nominee, divide and distract your party, overthrow your supremacy in the county, and place the Demo cratic yoke upon your necks, all to gratify his hatred of the man who fairly beat him for nomination. We know that you cannot be iaflu enced by one whose baseness is so apparent The treachery of Judas was not greater than hjs, and he felt his ignominy bo keenly, that he went away and hanged himself. A few men in this county who have made loud professions of their Republicanism, and have in most instances enjoyed ils emolument, arc sulking in their tents and either taking no part in the campaign or lending their silent influence to the enemy. Of course, this ia their individual right, however ungrateful it may be. Like t.: fly on the wheel, they may have uilajiringly said to themselves, "What a dust we kiek up," and fancied when they dismounted that its revolutions would cease. Let us show these gentlemen that the wheel can revolve as rapidly without car rying their weight Last year the Republicans of this county differed as to their first choice for President, some being for Grant and others for Blaine. Both these distinguished gentlemen were set aside, and Garfield was nomina ted, and received the eager support of every Republican in the county. Now, a few malcontents, working in the interest of the Democratic can didate for Judge, are trying to split the party by attempting to revive that dead and buried issue. A Re publican that can be stirred up against his party candidate by that kind of stuff, ought to put on sackcloth and ashes and wail over the death of that good old man, Father Adam. Will the voters look at this ! Judge Hall in his letter published elsewhere in this paper, appeals to the Bedford Republicans to vote for Mr. Baer on the ground that Mr. Cess na is mixed in all the law business in that county, and if elected, "it would imposo great expense on the tax-payera to get other Judges to hold courts." Now let us ask, is not Mr. Baer mixed in all the law busi ness of this county, ad will it not impose great expenso on the tax payers of this county to get other Judges to hold courts to try cases that Mr. Baer is employed in? Very kind in Judge Hall isn't it ? To try and have all the extra expenses sad died on this county by the election of Mr. Baer. The very thrifty Judge is a tax-payer in Bedford county and wants to save every penny he can. The cunning Judge never thought his letters would see daylight in this county, but here you have them in black and white, admitting that a vote for Baer in Somerset county, is a vote to impose higher taxes upon its people. We have caught the Ju dicial trickster at his dirty little game. Score another vote for Cess na, and against increased taxes ! There is a great deal of current twaddle to be found in newspapers of a certain class, about "Bosses" and "Machine politics." This is merely bogus coin, used by political knaves to swindle the unwary. Or ganization and leaders are essential to the success of any political party, or any enterprise that requires the combined effort of manv men. In dividual skill cannot execute heavy projects any moro than a disjointed party can achieve permanent suc cess. Without unison and harmony the Republican party could never have achieved the great results it has ac complished. The Republican who attempts to break up this organiza tion is an enemy to his party and his country. Encourage the spirit of faction in local contests and it will extend to National contests. Thi Democracy after twenty years of continuous effort have failed to break down the great party that carried the country safely through the rebellion. It cannot be destroy ed by its antagonists, but it may it self commit suicide. The few mal contents we have in our county are attempting to divide the party for the benefit of its enemies. Misrepresenting Garfield. A traitor, like a liar, is always compelled to do some mean things in his attempt to palliate, or escape the consequences of his act Every so-called Republican of prominence who has bolt d the party or joined in an effort to sow dissension in its ranks, has given as an excuse that he is following Garfield's wishes. When did James A. Garfield ever set his party's behest at defiance ? What decision of a party conven tion or a party caucus did he op pose ? General Garfield was a Re publican. He was a Republican be cause he believed in Republican principles, and he endorsed party measures and party methods and abided by party conventions and 1arty caucuses "because they were ikely to uphold the principles he loved. Bolting was abhorrent to him. He saw in it nothing but dis saster to the Republican party and success for the Democratic This is the record General Garfield made for himself. Puny politicians who have bolted the Republican conven tions and caucuses might excuse their treachery by equivocating about Gen. Garfield while he lived. But there is no palliation for those befouling his memory now that he is dead. If any crank wants to bolt his party and betray it in the hands of its eDemies, let him make the at tempt But for the sake of public decency he should abstain from slandering a dead man by imputing to him intentions and actions which his whole record, while living, con futes and stamps as false. Harris, burg Telegraph. Death Save Hi in From the Callow. IlARRisnritG, October 22. Eman uel Ettinger, a warrant for whose execution on the ICth of December next was issued by Governor 'Hoyt on Monday last, died in the Snyder county prison yesterday. He was under sentence of death for the mur der of Mrs. Grctcben Kinbeler, who with her aged husband was killed about four years ago. The airest and conviction of Ettinger, Jonathan Moyer, and Israel Erb the two lat ter under sentence of death were largely attributable to the statement of Ettinger's paramour, who witness ed the crime. Ettinger a few days ago confessed to his connection with the crime and implicated the two persons who are to be hanged in December. DAYLIGHT ROBBERY. THE COUNTY TREASURER OF BEAVER ATTACKED. Over Fifteen Thousand Dollar Carried Away After Knocking the Treasurer Insensible Re we (I OTered, RntiiKSTEK, Pa,, October 2S.-f-The latest account of the Beaver robbery is as follows : Between the hours of 6 and 7 this morning Treasurer Dawson entered the County Court House, aud proceeded to open the safe, an unknown man struck . him between the ryes and felled him to the floor. The accomplice of the man is supposed to have been out side the room keening guard. The two left the building immediately, passing out of the corridor at the north end. On their way out they met one or two early risers to whom they spoke, and then left the Court House. They were tracked in the dew on the grass to the sidewalk. The Treasurer, though severely bat tered, will recover. A reward of $."i(J0is offered. Some people are disposed to gee something crooked in the matter and claim that the whole affair was very singular, as much as intimating that the Treas urer knows more than he pretends to. They claim that such an amount of money ought not to be kept in the county safe and that as the term of office is about to expire, now would be the time to get away with some of the funds. Of course this is mere talk, and the majority of the citizens pay no attention to it This makes the second time that the County Treasury has been success-' fully robbed. Sheriff Weisner and the County Commissioners will do all in their power to have the perpe trators found. The Commissioners will probably offer five hundred dollars in addition to the five hun dred offered by Mr. Dawson as a re ward. Mr. Dawsen is a member of Dawson, Irvin & Co., oil refiners of Beaver. When elected, now nearly three years ago, heresided at Smith s Ferry, and was engaged in the pro duction of oil with Mr. T. J. Wat son, a member of the Pittsburgh Oil Exchange. The theory is that the robbers hid during the night in the base ment of the Court House and await ed the moment the Treasurer would open the safe. The watchman's room is in the attic, so that he could not without a strict exploration of the recesses of the lower part of the building have detected their hiding place. There had been in the safe some $18,000, but S3.0U0 had been deposited, and the thievesjgot in the neighborhood of $13,000. A Great Gun. Reading, October 24. Early this morning preparations were begun to cast the Lyman Haskell multicharge cannon at the Scott works of the Reading iron works, in this city. Two reverberating furnaces were charged with 57,000 pounds of coal blast charcoal iron from four other furnaces, and the cast was success fully made this afternoon. The fifty-seven thousand pounds of metal was poured into the mould in six minutes. It will require about two weeks to cool before the gun can be taken from the pit The gun is thirty-five feet long, and the bore, when finished, six inches in diameter. Along the bore four pockets will be located, in each of which a charge of powder will be E laced to accelerate the speed of the all after it leaves the chamber of the gun. It is claimed that a ball thrown from this gun will penetrate through two feet of solid wrought iron. A charge of powder will con sist of one hundred and thirty pounds, and the weight of the ball will be about one hundred and fifty pounds. The greatest diameter of the gun will be twenty-six inches. When finished the gun will be taken to Sandy Hook for trial. A number of military men and civilians from New York and other points were present to witness the casting. i Guitean's Trial Postponed. Washington, October 26. Upon the application of Messrs. Scoville and Robinson, counsel for Guiteau, Judge Cox in the Criminal Court to day consented to the postponement of the commencement of the assas sin's trial until November 14, in or der to give counsel for defence fur ther time to prepare their case. The Court said that the date to-day fixed upon must be regarded as pre emptorily established. Mr. Scoville admitted that he thought the Court had jurisdiction over the case, and intimated that he would not raise that question. District Attorney Corkhill has re ceived a telegram from Judge Por ter, of New lork, stating that he will assist the Goverment counsel in the prosecution of Guiteau. Judffe Lawrence. First Comntroll- er of the Treasury, has decided that witnesses for Guiteau lmng more than one hundred miles outside of the jurisdiction of the Court (Dis trict of Columbia) cannot be paid by the Government Inside of that radius their expenses can be paid. Mr. Blaine Tenders His Resignation. Washington, October 27. Secre tary Blaine a few days ago wrote to the President tendering for the sec ond time his resignation as Secretary of State. Mr. Blaine said that he did not wish the President to be un der the least embarrassment so far as he was concerned, and if the Presi dent so desired, his resignation was subject to instant acceptance. In reply the President asked Mr. Blaine to remain, and indicated that he had not as yet fixed any period for naming a new Secretary of State. from the day t hat General Arthur entered on his duties aa President, when Mr. Blaine placed his resigna tion at his disposal, he had never entertained the subject, and Mr. limine therefore thought it proper to tender his resignation a second time. Murder and Suicide. Bellows Falls, Vt- October 28. Ezra I'lock and wife, an old couple,' were found dead in their house this afternoon. No evidence of violence was found upon the man. On the woman's head a cut three inches long was discovered. The skull was not fractured. Death was probably caused by concussion of the brain. Mrs. Cook often inti mated she was of unsound mind, and in the bedroom was found an undated letter saying she was crazy, and if she should at any time Ce found dead she wished the son to be good to his father. The general theory is the woman administered poison to her husband, and then in flicted the blow upon herself. President Arthur's Policy. Washington, October 2(. Gov. Foster called on President Arthur to-day and had n long conversation. Mr. Foster had some doubt of hi reception by the new President, and seemed to think that the latter might not have a very warm side for General Garfield's close personal friend. Mr. Arthur, however, re ceived the Ohio Governor with hearty cordiality and refused him self to alt other visitors during Mr. Foster's stay. The President asked about the condition of the Republi can party in Ohio, congratulated Governor Foster on his re-election, and hoped there was no division in the party ranks. He said he was placed in a very difficult position, a position he had not sought nor ex pected, and the dreadful crime which placed him there made his situation most embarrassing. He could not, of course, escapo from the responsibility, but he said he wanted the Bupport of all good Re publicans; that he wanted no di visions, but, on the contrary, he wanted all good men to uphold him and strengthen his hands in trying to administer his great trust impar tially. He said ho wanted to be ad vised and to avoid through timely information the making of mistakes. He hoped that if there were any factions in the party that all sides would confer with him ; that so far as he was concerned he had no ene mies to punish, and he did not in tend to be used to punish the ene mies of other persons. He advanc ed in the most positive manner the theory that Senators and Members of the House are tho best judges of the sentiments of their constituents and the stand of applicants for office within their boundaries. This dec laration indicates in the strongest manner that the new President in tends to hold Members and Senators responsible for appointments within their States, and to let their constit uents look to them for a proper ac countability. Governor Foster was greatly impressed with his interview and was greatly astonished by the practical views advanced by the President and by the strength "of the position he has already decided upon. The conversation as a gener al result indicates that Mr. Arthur, after all, can talk when he chooses to. Damage by the Ilise in the Missis sippi. Chicago, October 20. A dispatch from Keokuk reports a continued alarming rise in the Mississippi. The town of Alexandria, Mo., is completely inundated. The city levee near there broke and the water was overflowing the Wabash railway embankment in the southern part of the city. A number of citizens have gone to Warsaw and Keokuk for protection. Burlington, Ia., October 2G. The river is still rising, having yesterday gained two inches. It is now about four inches above high water mark of June 1S80. Reports continue to come in of the loss of crops and live stock on the lowlands north of Burlington. People were obliged to take refuge on the uplands. Quincy, 111., October 20. The Mississippi river at this point is now higher than nt any time since 1851. The runniu,: of trains on the Quincy, Alton and l'. Ixmis branch of the Chicago, Burlington and .Quincy railroad has had to be aban doned on account of the weakening of the bridges overCurtiss creek, one mile south of this city. Trains are run to and from Han nibal via Palmyra over the Hanni bal and St Joe railroad. The Attorney Generalship. Washington, October 2G. ( )n the authority of Senator Jones, it may be statea that President Arthur ten dered Mr. MacVeagh a permanent place in the Cabinet as Attorney General, which -Mr. MacVeagh de clined. In explaining the reasons for asking Mr. MacVeagh to remain, that assertions have lately been made, and it is supposed by persons directly interested in the prosecu tion of the Star route cases, that if they fail it will be due entirely to lack of support on the part of the Executive. He (the President) was determined that it the cases were as strong as this implied that he would not be responsible for their failure, and he determined to place affairs in such shape that no person could say that he had not given Messrs. James and MacVeagh every oppor tunity to carry out the investigation which they had undertaken. - Train Robbers. Kansas Citv, October 27. The Chicago and Alton is taking steps to defeat further attempts of train rob bers. The Untited States express company has agreed to provide bur glar proof safes for the express cars, and the railroad company will re model the cars to the extent of abol ishing the doors at the end, leaving doors only at the side. The safes will be locked at Chicago and un locked at Kansas City. The combi nation will be known only by the person at each end of the route whose duty it shall bo to open and close the safes. The express mes senger will not be provided with a key, and thereefore intimidation will be wasted upon him, as he will be powerless to aid the robbers. The express messengers and train men are to be armed. A Sociable Hanging. Dallas, Texas, October 28. Jack Post was hanged to-day in the pres ence of thousands of people. The gallows was erected on a hill near the town, and sometime before the hour fixed for the execution it was surrounded by a crowd who waited for the terrible scene, a3 for an ex citing show. Many negroes flocked from the plantations as to a circus. Many had lunch baskets, and ate and drank and cracked jokes wait ing for the sheriff and condemned man. A Trio lynched. Desvkr, October 28. 1). W. Lockhait, Kid Coulter and a man know as blini were lynched nt Tier ra Amoretta, Col., last night. . Lock hart and Slim were arrested a few days ago for horse stealing. Coulter was imprisoned for a murder com mitted at Chama nine months ago. The immediate cause of the lynch ing was the discovery of Coulter's plans to kill the guard and escape. Importing Cabbage. The Steamer Leipzig, which arri ved at Baltimore, on Saturday, from Bremen, brought among her cargo 8000 cabbages, imported from Olden burg, in Germany. This novel im- Eortation is due to the scarcity and igh price of home cabbage. A Brilliant rkfun. Washington, October 21. The reception to th French and Ger man guests of the nation, which wan given at Wonidoy'tt thu even ing under the auspices of the State Department, was brilliant and im posing. The Secretary of State and Mrs. Blaine received the guest9 standing in the centre of tlie front pnlor of the quadruple suite that were thrown together to form the salon. The rooms wero decorated with flags of tho American, French and German nations, and from 9:30 o'clock till 11:30 were a mass of brilliant uniforms and draperies of charming women.
