Mr. Rkqkr'b etory before the bribery
investigating committee hath a fish-like <
smell. Who were the ^publicans so 1
anxious for Mr. Camden's election that 1
they were willing to furnish money for J
the parchaao of other Republicans to f
elect him? 1
If tho committoe believes this to be any l
more than a dream it will leave nothing j
nmlnnit fn nrnlm f.hn matfnr fr? l.hohntinm
If Republicans were in such a job we ]
want a eight of them; but until there
shall be corroborating testimony we shall
remain of tho opinion that no Republican <
was trading in that way. Furthermore it 1
ia not probable that a man 8fllicte& as the 1
witaesj aaya ho is would be entrusted 1
with bo delicate a mieaion. j
If anybody haa sought to mo money to j
elect a Banalor every honest man in West
Virginia would rejoico to oeo the crime
intoned whers it belongs, bat by reason
of tho gravity of the offense it would be j
unfair to take such testimony aa that oi ,
Saturday without strong corroboration. ;
However, the committee will of course <
follow up every load, and ao far aa it can 1
determine whether any attempt haa been ^
inado to buy votes. This the committoe
ought lo do without stopping to consider
where the bolt may fall. ]
There is mora probability in tho testimony
so far as it relates to the 8cofield
letter, not necessarily as to the details, but
as to procuring the letter. If Mr. Reger '
likes tho way in which, aa he says, he got <
that letter, everybody olse, with tho poa

by the crowd, who cried out, "Vive la

After a short stop, M. Schnaebels proceeded
to Paris. He declined to be interviewed
by members of the press. He dea
clared ho had been well treated by the
it Germans.
r, The Paris newspapers appear to be
!a nearly all well pleased by the manner in
which the Schnaebels aflair has been set*
a tied, and pronounco it an honorable set*

it fairness displayed by M. Flourens, Minisd

son that in the future France must rei0
double her vigilance in order to avoid sure
prises of the kind caused by the arrest of

INCREASING THEIR .FORCE,
Blooli Urotherx Now Employing Four llun.
dred and Fifty llundti.
Bloch Bros., the well-known "Mail
Poach" smoking and chewing tobacco
manufacturer of this city, have found it
necessary to increase their force of employes
by over one hundred to meet the
heavy'demand that ia being made foi
their tobacco. They now have at work
in their large concern, in the lower part
of the Eighth ward, over 450 employes.
The additional one hundred and over, recently
.employed, were nearly all boya whc
are engaged in stripping tobacco, and
nearly as large a number of girls are
similarly engaged. The boya and girls
are kept apart, being in different parts of
Che building and having separate entrances.
The balance of thie small armyjol
workers are many of them young poople
engaged in the package and packing departments.
Ever since Bloch Bros, went
out of the wholesale grocery buainess and
devoted themselves exclusively to the
manufacture of "Mail Pouch" their trade
has steadily grown and ?the popularity oi
their goods increased. Two or threo years
ago they purchased the large five-story
building formerly used by the sugar refinery
company; since then they have
been forced to build several largo additions.
The demand .for "Mail Pouch"
from the West ia very heavy at pros out.
The firm has one of its agents in Springfield,
Ohio, just now and he has a force of
painters at work that are astonishing tbe
people of that place. In addition to painting
the firm's trade mark on the sides ol
buildings ho throws in landscapes and
portraits in a handoomo manner; it one
the papers declares it "confiscates the confectionery."
All the papers of the place
have made extended notices of the artistic
work.

die aged man ol prepoaaeaalcg appearance
; and elogant manners, who gave his same
| as Davis, and hie occupation that of a
s music teacher, ilo allied himself with
tho Watkina Park Methodist church, and
everything tlourlshed with him, Howevj

verae to borrowing, and, fn (act, as proof
now gous to Bhovr, hardly evor let
1 paas by an opportunity to oeoure a loan.
From several prominent gentlemen ho
received nicn amounts. Thursday night
i Mr. Davis disappeared which occasioned
I considerable remark, and on tho same dny
on which Davis took his departure (ho
wiie of Mr. William Potty, a gentleman
living in Bouth NaBhville, alao disappeared.
It la now revealed that tho two went
together. The musio teacher's real name
i was not Davis, but A. B. Bohannan. Years
ago ho was a Cumberland Presbyterian
i proacher. He married, while wearing
the clerical robes, Miss Ella Robo,
daughter of E. T. Roue, of this city.
For yoars they lived together in Wilson
i county, but tho charge of obtaining
money under falsn pretenses arising
against him, ho look his wife and ono
child, ahoy named Charley,'up to Logansport,
Ind. There she obtained a divorce
from him and subsequently came bock to
Nashville. That was eight yeara since.
Three years ago Mr. William Petty, who
is in business, met tho lady, who is still
young ttnd attractive, and married her,
and up to the unexpected turn of affairs
have lived in harmony and happiness,
never hearing of Bohannan and rarely alluding
to him.
"About aix weeks ago," said the deserted
husband, in relating the story," I came
home one evening and my wife told me
that Bohannan had boon at the house. 1
told her I did not want him to be making
visits to her, but she said he came to see
Charley, his and my wife's ten year old
boy. I told Ella that the man came with
no good intention and asked her not to
see him any more, but in spite of my
wisheB, he went to boo her three times
after that. Thursday morning I
left her as usual with a kiss
and went to my work. On returning that
, night I found the houao looked, and after
getting in found a note in which she said
*he had becomo convinced that according
to Scripture she was committing adultery
1 in living with me, having another hus>
band living, and she did not want to go to
, torment and dra*? me with her. She also
said that she did not think wo had
1 over loved each other as man and
' wife Bhould. and wnnnrl " >
: saying that she -was going to
take Charley and go off, but I can't believe
ehe has gone off with Bohannan,
though I know of course he is at the hoti
torn of the whole thing. When he came
here and saw us happy and prosperous a
feeling of revenge for her loaving him
took poBaenaion of him, I tnink and he determined

pAnKERHBuita, W. Ya., April 30.?Judge
, Jackson, of the United States Court, decided
to-day in chambers, on the chancery
side of tho court, th^ famous land suit
of Duffner vs. Farnsworth et al., involving
about twenty-five thousand dollars. After
the case was tried in Wheeling about a
year ago a new trial wns granted. The
bill filed charged fraudulent transaction
: upon the part of D. D. T. Farnsworth and
his associates, numbering about nineteen,
all residents of Upshur county, in the sale
of a tract of land in that eonnty to DuCi
ner, of Cleveland, Ohio, for $20,000. It
also charged that the defendants had no
. legal claim to the land conveyed, even if
there were no fraudulent intentions, because
of older surveys and titles.
Judge Jackson decided that the evidence
did not reveal any fraudulent intentions
on the part of Farnsworth and
his associates, but that they had no legal
title to the laud sold, and that the con
tract between them and Dufl'ner should
'Ibe rescinded and the purchase mnnnv
: amounting to more than $20,000, paid by
Dufliier, should be returned to him by
Farnaworth and bia associates.
A vaat amount of evidence waa heard,
and the case required several daya. It
was ably argued by Lion. M. T. Frame
