Wheeling's Great Baby Show
Yesterday Afternoon.
Naarly 200 of the Prattlot and Smartest
Babiei in ths World. !
Oil, Thpy Are Ju*t Too Nwecl lor I
Anything!
A lull List ol tlic Voli'M 1'nlhMl- ,
"Isn't lie hand-tome?" "Perfectly
charming, ii*n't ahc?" "Oh, you weenty
teenty little raical, you?" " Blessed
little angel, nlie shall look out of the
window !" Such wcro the sound* that
fell on one's earn when he entered the
bahy flhow yesterday afternoon, and began
to take a general nurvev of the babies
that were patiently being looked at by
the crowd of people coining and going.
The talking seemed to lie done mainly
by the jieoplc. A more reticent
ami unsocial *et ?>( individuals
were never seen together than those
bahies. Now and then one of them would
give its mother a severe scolding, because
alio would not allow it to test the flavor
of the bright ribbons about its apparel.
Hut aside from these Might and rare outburst*
of indignation, the little angels
were remarkably quiet and well behaved.
On every side remarks could be heard on
tho novelty of the scene. Everybody
knows bow a baby appears in private life,
and in its own home, but nob idy, by the
simple aid of imagination, can form any
conception of the appearance presented
by
MKAUI.Y TWO IIUNDHRED DAMES
in a public hall (or rather in two
public balls, as one hall was not large
enough to accommodate them) all dressed
out in their "Ik-sI bib and tucker." It is
something which must be seen to he api
hi ?i.?,i?
visited the show hail a vote; and it wan
indeed Amusing to nee how the anxious
mother* would watch the ballot box and
scan the faces of the voter* as they deposited
their individual verdict*.
KNT11USIA8TIC MAMMAS AND l'KOUD PAPAS.
The most apparent thing of all; the
me thing which wtared every visitor
in the face, the moment he placi-d
foot within the hall, watt the pride
and delight which each mother
took in her own precious cherub. Nor
did the enthusiasm of the mothers exhibit
itself in any proportion to the comparative
beauty of the children. On the
contrary, each ladv (teemed to think she
had positively the handsomest baby in the
collection. And, after all, who dares
gainsay it? How wise the old Roman*
were. "Concerning tastes, tlfere can be no
dispute," ?aid they. Adopt the spirit of
thin motto, nnd you will nee at once how
perfectly honest each mother was, and
now futile any ell'ort would have been to
convince her she thought too highly ot
her child.
Yet?i\nd who would have ihougt it??
the mother* were not a whit "worse" than
the fathers. More than one anxious papa
hustled around through the densely
packed crowd and button-holed visitor*
to cast their ballots for hid own little
angel. More than one neglected work
and everything elite, and sat like a martyr,
holding flume hig baby who seeme?l
determined to do nothing but kick and
look cross.
TUP. KUMBBIt OF BABR8
exhibited surpassed even the wildest
dream* of the projectors. When a baby
show wan first thought of many shook
their heads and declared the thing imposrtilde,
while those of a more sanguine temperament
hoped that a collection of Home
tifty or sixty could be secured. There
were so many entries that the hook was
closed on Wednesday evening, and extra
accommodations had to be engaged. The
lurge Festival room on Main street not
being hnlf large enough, Franzheira's
Hull, immediately opposite, wan secured.
Notice wits given tiiat babies
under one year (Class A) ami twins
(Class D) would bo exhibited in Franzheiui's
Hall, ami those between one and
two yearn (Ola 11) and between two ami
three year* (Claw C) in the Festival
room.
liurly in the afternoon the most unobserving
stranger would have guessed there
w.ts something in ibe wind. llabies of
all ages,characters and complexions were
being wheeled and carried to the central
pin of tbe city, Immediately upon nr?
riving at the rooms the youngsters
were properly classified and
numbered, and with their atItendanta
stationed along the - sides
of the halls for inspection. The numbers
thus classified were as follows: Class A, |
50; Class 11, 61; Class C, 3ti; Class D, ten
puir of twins; making the total number ol
b.ihies on exhibition one hundred and
seventy-three. It is a great satis faction to
relate that
THE L1TTLK CITI2KNS
who cheerfully contributed their presence
and exerted their powerful intluence
iu behalf of the homeless children of the
city attracted an immense crowd of jieopie.
The streets and pavements in the
vicinity were crowded, and (lie halU
themselves a dense mass of sweltering hu*
mill beings, moving m moved Ihe crowd,
and than, after being pu?hed, squeezed
and elbowed the circuit of the rooui, retiring
in acondition of crushed helplessness
Thus it was that many were un>
able to get close enough to the babiea to
nee them, and others who had seen the
b.?bien could not get close enough to the
ballot boxes to deposit their votes. All
these disagreeable sensations wero ex'
perienced with the utmost good nature,
however, and all united in declaring tlio
show a success, and expressing their surprise
that there were in Wheeling bo
many handiome infanta.
So far as our observation extended, all
api>eared satisfied with the method of
awarding the prizes,and the people voted
*"? u?o?e uauiea who in weir opinion
were really lueritoriouB. The babiea expreyed
no opinion in tho matter, and
neeincd to bo totally indifferent. A dUintf
rested condition in candidate* la always
detrimental to their *uccenn, and bo totally
careleasaa to the renult of tho content
*ere tho little innocent* that it was a
wonder that any of them received a
j'nie ?t all. Not so with their mother*,
however. Indeed, the
llABlia WSHR NOT TltK ONLY RIGHTS <
lo lie Hocn nt the show. One not accun* 1
tomed to baby shows would naturally 1
suppose that the mothers would not l>e
greatly concerned aato tHe result of the 1
content. But they were. There wan not,
a mother present who did not think that \
her baby ought to have the prize, and in I
one way and another nhe ex preyed her
opinion to that effect. How proudly
they held up their little onea and turned I
their faced to the view of the visitor. Not J
one of them tired of telling the ages and ;
peculiarities of their darling* over and .
oter, again.
Another lesson td bo learned was the
cotnp lete refutation of the idea that some ;
Inexperie need men entertain, viz: that all
labiea look alike. It has been one of the
disagreeable things that the babies of I
Wheeling have had to endure all their <
liven, to hove every visitor who has called I
upon them sny, "Ye-s, it is very hand
out all daiii km look a luck
to me." Willi the silence ami meekness
that they always display, they have borne
all thin without a murmur, but their
show presented them a grand opportunity
to show people their miHtake. They ,
proved by every look and gesture that
every one of theni possessed ait much c
individuality a* a grown person.
While the crowd were inspecting the .
little ones, the Intklliohnceu reporter
followed their example. Something good .
conld be said of every baby present.
There wax not one but that could bo K
called handsome, and some were truly an*
Relic. At 4 o'clock the polls were closed, t
and the children having by this time become
very tired and sleepy, many were j
taken away by their attendants. Others
liniyred a little longer, ami by 4;30 v
o'clock the rooms were clearwt-anU the
committee left alone to count tlte votes. ,
AWAKD1NU Tit K 1>KKMIUU9.
The result of the voting was not made I
known until about 8:30o'clock in the evening.
Of course there was considerable 1
intercut?not to sav excitement?in tlu>
result. There was a large crowd in at* c
tendance, but ai the mothers of the lucky
babes were not present they were notified '
by letter of their success. We give helow

prizes, and the rewards received:

TUB FOUR TER CENT BONDS.
Tho Secretary of the Treasury has iaRued
an addition to the prospectus issued
yesterday relative to the 1 per cent bonds,
Any person subscribing and inakinj? payment
in full before July 1,1877, will re
ceivc from the Treasurer of the United
States an interest check covering the period
from the date of such payment tc
the date of the bond, July 1,1870. Thf
Comptroller of the Currency haa issued a
circular to national bank*' in referonce
to the new four per cent loan. He Bays
it is the condition of the contract that th<
loan tmould be ode red for a reasonable pe
riod to the people of the United States at
par, and the circular accordingly invitet
subscriptions at par until July 10,
prox., with the privilege of payment for 3
months thereafter. It ia understood thai
the loan will be offered in Europe as well
us here, and .the associates may advance
the price after that date. It remains
therefore, to bo seen to what extent the
privilege of purchase thus received will
i>e availed of, and the expectations and desire
is general that American subscript
tions shall be as largo as possible. Subscriptions
by people outside ol American
cities, will bo paid largely in currency,
while the bonds, by law can, be sold only
for gold. It is obvious that the hank*
must generally be employed by the
public, either for tho purchase dI
gold or for remitting currency to the
associates in New York for that purpose,
Tho bonds nre dated July 1st and bear
interest from that d*te, but where sub.
scriptions made during the present month
are paid in full, interest for tho period
from date of subscription to date of bond
will be remitted in check by the Treasurer
of the United States. The bonds will
be ready for delivery J illy -d. Payment!
made alter July 1st will be charged with
accrued interest at 4 per cent from date
of bonds up to the date of Much payment
at the current premium of gold, and the
present bonds will be sold at a lower,'price
than any other issue, while as they mature
only after 210 years they are more desiruble
from their permanence than bonds
bearing higher rates of interest whose net
returns on the amount invested will Ik
found to be but slightly if at all higher
than the income from the new issue.
National banks who may desire to ex<
change bonds now on deposit with the
Treasurer, or who propose to increase
their circulation, can aavail themselves
of the opportunity to subscribe for these
bonds until July l(Uh, paying for the
game at any time within three inonthi
thereafter.
The National Hanks, concludes the
Comptroller, have always heretofore met
the financial exigencies of the Govern
ment with the essential assistance whicli
they wer^able to atlbrd, and it is believ
ed that they will heartily join with the
Secretary of the Treasury in reducing tin
public burdens and giving unity and turn
plicity to the system of the Nation*
finances.

Details ol a WeNtern Tragedy.
St. Looia, Juno 1G.?Tho Qldbt-Dmo
crat has a special from Rockwell totlay
which gives a graphic account of a re1
markable murder and iuicldo rcccntly
1 comuiittod there. It appear* that in the
latter part of April, 1876, limbury CanT
non, his son William and two nephew*,
got on a big spree in Rockwell, and created
a disturbance in the town until late!
[ at night. Sheriff Alex. Starkea wan on
[ intimate tonna with the Cannon*, and endeavored
to persuade them to denial from
this rioton* proceeding, but wan not sueceasful.
He then warned them that if
they did not itop disturbing the peace
r he would arrest them. This only made
them worse, and the whole party assaulti
ed the Sheriff and beat and cut him severely.
During the moleo the Sheriff
drew a revolver and snapped it several
{ time*, but none of the chamber* exploded.
. The party scattered, however, and Starke*
procuring a better weapon, followed the
't Cannon*, intending to nrre*t them. He
\ found them at a billiard *aloon and wan
. again *et upon bjr the whole party, and
I while defending himself shot and killed
\V. A. Cannon. This ended the good re.
lations between Starkea and the Cannons,
> and some time afterwards Starkes was no1
tilied that Embury Cannon wa* trying to
hire someone to assassinate him. It became
*o evident that Starkes offered hi*
farm for sale with the intention of
moving at once to Borne other place where
' he would be more secure. In September,
joiu, ? Mirunger appeared in nocuweii,
1 singularly dressed and armed with a
' double barrel shotgun and several revol
vers, lie pretended to want to buy a
I farui, and was referred to Starkes as hav'
ing one for sale. Ho called on Starkes,
1 and, after a short conversation, they both
1 started for the farm, Starkes in opposition
to earnest entreaties of his wile and
the advice of some neighbors. He never
returned alive, but next morninp his dead
! body was fonnd in the woods with a load
' of buckshot in his head. The murderer
iled. It was subsequently learned that
1 his name was George W. Garner,
i In October, following the murder,
the grand jury indicted Garner for the
murder of Starkes, and Embury Cannons
1 as the instigator of the crime, but neither
could be found. It seems tliut prior to
the murder of Starkes, Garner had shot
1 the Sheriff of Lee county, Texas, while
that oiliccr was attempting his arrest,
' and rewards aggregating $1,000 were
ouerca lor mm. When the bljerit! ol Lee
county recovered from hi* wound* he determined
to capture darner, and after a
long March found him in a little town
near Little Kock, and succeeded in ar1
resting and taking him to Lee co., where
! he wan turned over to tho Rockwell co.
authorities. Last March he won tried
1 and convicted of the murder of Ktarkes
and sentenced to be hanged on the 15th of
June (to-dny). After hia conviction he
' made a confession, Haying that Embury
: Cannon hired him to kill Starkes for
live hundred dollars cruh, a note for$125
1 and a team of horses. Last Tuesday
' evening Mrs. Garner was allowed to enter
1 the jail and remain with her husband till
his execution. This morning on o|>ening
his cell the 8 her ill' found Mrs. Garner
dead and her husband nearly lifeless.
A doctor waa seut for, but before he
arrived Garner died. Both left letters. In
the one written by Mrs. Garner she said
she purchased morphine at Dallas two
iffnol,. u?n .i.i ? l, ;> ??,? ;.:i I.,,
"lv" -bv lu7 ? ?'??
moutu. A question then arose us to
; whether there wan enough to kill both
' and which of thein should take the largest
portion of it. Mrs. Garner evidently
took enough to kill, but there were marks
" about her neck which show she had also
! been strangled. Garner also took aome
! |>oiHon but when found he had cotton
1 Btuiled in his nostrils, a handkerchief
crammed in his mouth and a wire,
1 tho bail of a bucket in his
1 cell and twisted it around their necka,evidently
not being satisfied that tliey had
5 taken enough morphine to kill they
finished the job by Btrangulation. The
verdict'of the jury was death from Htran1
gulation. MrB. Garner's letter further
says that it wan not through herhusband's
^ persuaion that she gave up all to go with
! with him, but for hia ?ake, to whom she
' was devotedly attached, and her heart's
1 wish. There seems to have been bad
blood in the Garner family.
A brother-in-law of lna was recently
Bhot by the Sheriff of Benton county,
Texan, while attempting to arrest him,
and his mother ia now under indictment
lor poisoning her third huaband.
! About 3,000 jjeraona assembled at Rock'
well thin morning to witness the execu1
tion, but when they learned that Garner
' had cheated the gallows they quietly but
respectfully dispersed to their home*.
