Strug e Story Told to a Reporter*
A Strange Trio of OfKiprlog.
-- J
' . i ' . . - * ; U 4-v, i ?'? '' ,''?5
There wu a strange character at the
entrai station house last night It wu a
agged," dirty woman of nngnessable age,
>lind and with (he look of a lunatic, who
J aimed to be a full blooded Cherokee InUan
woman. Her claim was evidently
ruthful. In spite of the ravages of age,
lardship .and exposure, she was not areauUive
looking woman, but had a deneauor
strangely compounded of dignity
ind imbecility. Her deep set eyes were
ughtless, but sue una toe prominent cneeit
jodl'H, the straight nose, black, straight
aair, copper hue and erect carriage of the
typical Indian. Her broken English waa
ilnq indicative of the strange tongue of her
Willi her were her three children. The
ildeat, a boy of fourteen, bears his mother's
Indian cast of countenance. The second,
also a boy, aged about eight yean,
showed his Caucassian blood unmlstaka
bly, while the youngest, a girl papoose of
three, has the most evident signs of African
blood. A big black'dog completes
the family.
woran says she started twentyBeven
Sundays ago from a point in Mississippi,
which she thinks was about 160
miles south of Memphis, and has walked
every day sincc, with the exception of
three, weeks, carrying the papoouo neatly
every step. The three weeks rest ?u
spent in the infirmary at Gallipolia, 0.
Night before last the party camped near
tiix woman's msTour.
The woman says sho- is called Mfnda
Davis, but that is not her name; that she
has no name. She wants ti get to Ghambersburg,
Pa., where she has a grown sou,
agraduateof the Government school at
Carlisle, who is a farmer.
She aaysshe "was bora in the Territory,
when Chief Thomas was head chief." Her
father's Indian name was fla-hos-ta, but
ho was commonly called Bendbrook.
When Bhe was fifteen years old she committed
some act which was an infraction of
the tribal code, and by judgment of the
council her eyes were extinguished, aud I
sho was banished from the reservation.
She wandered into Mississippi, where a I
remnant o( her tribe remained, and after j
a few years married' Her husband was
killed, and she married a white man. Ho |
also met a violent death at Indianapolis,
andohortly after she wedded a negro carpenter,
who also died last fall.
On her way here she passed the house
of Bill Thomas, a son of the famous chiefs
who owns a tine farm in Tennessoe. He
offered her a home, but she refused to
stay, preferring to make her way to her
son. Her son ddea not knowsbe is on
her way, or, she says, he would have sont
hef money, which sho did not want him
to do. /f
Mrs. Davis looks as if sho'might havb |
been a handsome woman once. She
seems to lavish unstinted and impartial
affection on all her children and the dog, |
and spoke with pride of the brute's love
for the papoose, and'of her "older son's
"Injun ways," especially his liery temper.
The party was lodged in the station
house, in the women's quarters, by Officer
Wilkie. Ho was summoned to the east
end of sixteenth street lust evening by a
telephone message to the effect that a
family of eypsies was lying on the sidewalk
by the old graveyard. Upon lis
arrival there he found the Indian tribe,
besieged with clods by a crowd of small
boys. The older Indian boy showed fight
and wns hirating & brick.
"If I can find a brick I'll break a few
IumhIs!" he said.
He probably would have done it had not
the ofllcer arrived when he did.
The children were all asleep when a reporter
called at tlio, station house lost
night. Mrs. Daviunid until they reached
Wheeling they had been very warmly
treated in West Virginia. They were
well fed and kindly nsed. In Ohio, oh
the contrary, they had a hard time of it
The woman did not seem to be at all discouraged,
and said they would start this
morning and trudge oa toward Pennsylvania.

last evening in the lecture room of the
railroad evangelist, and her co-laborer, '
Uiaa Ida Snerman, ol Beaton, It was not
known until Saturday evening that these ,
ladiea would visit Wheeling yesterday .
and were desirous ot meeting the people.
The onlr announcement ol the meeting 1
that could be made was from the pulpits ]
Sunday and in yesterday morning'spapers,
but that waa aufllclent to fill the lecture
room to almost ita full capacity. Bar.
Dr.' 8mlth.' pastor of the church, bad 1
charge ol tne meeting, which waa opened '
by doling and a prayer by Presiding
Elder Hlte. Dr. Smith then said that in j
meetings of this nature he believed, like
Mr. Murphy, In giving every one present
a chance to participate; to that end, a
collection would be taken np. This
caused a imile and a rather liberal response.
Another smile waa caused when
Mr. Joshua Bodley rose and said that he
wanted a chance to participate, but had
not been given one. A collection basket
was sent in his direction at once.
Dr. Smith then presented Miss Jennie
Smith. Be rightly said that she was too
well known to demand an introduction.
Misa Smith and Miss Sherman are on their
way to Miss Smith's home at Mountain
lake Park, after a long trip through the
South. There they will take a short and
much needed rest preparatory to resuming
their evangelical work. Miss Smith
is the same plain, modest appearing, earnest
little woman that she always has been.
Her story la well known; for years she
lay on a bed of suffering, but in all that
time she never lost faiti in a Divine
power to cure and save; suddenly a new
strength permeated her poor, nfllictod
body and she arose from her bed; it was a
fjilh cure, and a roost miraculous ono,
too. Sbe decided at once to devote her
time u[ul energies to evangelical work,
giving a maj rity of her time and attention
to the railroad men. At first, only
one road allowed her to work among il?
men, but now there is hardly a railroad
company that is not glad to have her visit
its shops and talk with its men. She is
receiving calls from all over the countrymote
than site can respond to, and everywhere
she goes her work bears m?et
gratifying fruits. In her work she is
ably seconded by Miss Sherman. Their
mode of working, while perhaps not so
pretentious as that of Moody and Sankey,
the great evangelists, is just as effective, if
not more so, and reaches a class of people
much more in need of the Gospel than
those that flock to see Moody and Sankey.
Mise .Smith might be called a female
Murphy. She lays no claim to being a
lecturer or an orator?she is simply n
talker; not one pf the denunciatory style,
but an earnest, pleading, persuading one,
with a woman's sympathiiing heart and a
feeling of tenderness for every poor outcast^
who imagines himself without a
friend in the world to care or bother about
Bis future. She told her audience last1
night about her work in the South, espec- J
ially in Atlanta, where the hafvest was a
rich one. She has extended her field oi
operation, op'd now not only looks after
the railroaii men in the shops and on the
road, but vislte&nd talki with the streetcar
men, who are away from homo nearly all
the time, the police and firemen?
publio guardians, bnt whose flnsl salvation
is seldom thought of by the publicnewspaper
men and other classes who are
thought to be by the public the tough
citizens oi the country. She gave some of
her experiences and pleaded with the
Christian people, who were listening to
her intently and with great interest, to aid
her in the work among these classes.
Miss 8berman also snoke feelingly for a
few minutes: sbo is a Boston lady of very
pleasing address and iB evidently very
much in earnest in her work. The meet*
ing closed with prayer offered by Miss
Tim "Kqainc Paradox" Proven to !! all nad
MoreThan Promised.
Frof. Bartholomew's famous "Equine
Paradox," appeared for the first time in
Wheeling last night at the Opera House.
No entertainment of any kind given here
for yeare has created the enthusiasm and
interest exhibited by tbe public last night.
Indeed, all day the car in which the
horses are stabled was surrounded by
crowds of people, and street parade was
witnessed by thousands.
Last evening at 7 o'clock the crowd in
front of the Opera House packed'Market <
street clear across, and a hundred feet up
and down street. When the horses had !
walked up stairs, there was a rush for the
door, and in a few minutes every seat was
occupied. By the time the curtain went
up the largest audience of the season bod
assembled, and fully five hundred people i
were turned away. Standing room was
scarce 'The audience was largely made i
tip of ladies, and many of the clergy and
others seldom sunn in the theatres were
interested spectators. It was a Mattering

minutes of the last meeting, when the appropriation
was made. Some member!
feared that if the - minutes were approved
the action would sot be rescinded.- The
question was discussed ail forenoon, and
anally the minutes were agreed to and the
Board adjourned for dinner.
The Board on motion of Mr. Boring, received
the petition prepared by the Board
of Trade and signed by over 1,100 taxpayers
against the excessive appropriation,
and heard Mr. A. J. Sweeney in a forcible
and well considered argument in aupport
of the prayer of the petition.
In the afternoon thereporttof the Committee
on Iioads and Bridges, giving the
awards of contracts for work on the construction
and repair of county roads, was
first taken up. Mr. Maxwell moved to
approve the report. ' Mr. Dethrone
moved to take up one contract at a time
anil approve, rcjeci ur aiiur it.
Mr. Pickett advocated deferring action
on the whole matter. Mr. Peterson also
made a strong argument in favor of deliberation
and delay. Hi read from chapter
43, sections 8 and 23, of the Code, the
provision that nu incorporated city or
town which maintains' its own streets
shall not be taxed to keep op the roads
outside of the city limits. Helield that the
appropriation was Illegal and could be enjoined,
and said he understood it wonld
be. lie thought tiro wise policy would b?
to reduce the appropriation so ta to avoid
Messrs. Boring and Delbrngge also opposed
the approval of the report President
Woods (Mr; Peterson in the chair)
spoke in favor of accepting the report
now as It stood. Mr. Pickett advocated
the city's interests and said it required all
the taxes citiiens of Wheeling could reasonably
be asked to pay to support the
city government and keep uo the streets.
Mr. Maxwell favored the appropriation.
Mr. Maxwell thought that if the Board of
Trade would pay its much attention to
their own affairs as they do to those of
tho county they would prosper more
After some further discussion Mr. Delbrugge
moved to defer action upon the
report until next Monday, Ttnd invite the
representatives of the Board of Trade
to appear at that time. Then there was
some more talk. And still some more;
each time the Ohairman stated the questloait
stirred up some new disputant with
the same old points.
At half past four a vote was taken on
the motion to defer. Mr. Prince wasabsent.
Messrs Petorson, Boring, Pickett
and Delbrngge voted to dcl?r. Messrs.
Stein and blocker stuck firmly with the
throe country members.
The motion to take up one clause at
a time was then put and lost by a vote of
4 to 5. The report was then adopted as a
The Committee on Court House and
Jail recommended the repainting of the
court rooms, tho whitewashing and cleaning
of a part of the jail, and the renovation
of the jury rooms and Sheriff's and
Prosecutor's offices, .and the painting of

uereu pam.
The recommendations concerning the
court house were deferred; and that relative
to Die jail adopted. Mr. Woods opposed
the Capitol resolution. Mr. Delbrugge
favored it. The resolution was
adopted. Messrs. Woods, Nichols and
Maxwell voting no.
Tho committee on Finance recommended
that Sheriff Hundlan be paid $348 81,
