1 A htart Mas made, and that was all, at
Wellsburg yesterday in the trial of Van
a Buren Baker for the murder of his wife's
5 mother, Mrs. Drusilla McWba, at their
J home at Holliday'sCove, Hancoc!: county,
on May 1), 1887. Though Mrs. Baker
i- was killed at the same time, ami, as alI
leged, by Baker also, the case now on trial
and which was tried at New Cumberland
t before, involves only the killing of the
L old lady. The murder of Mrs. Baker
forms n separate charge, for which Baker
* was separately indicted; but that case
. will scarcely reach a trial, for the reason
'. that a conviction on the one charge
; would have all the effect of a conviction
on both, and if the accused is acquitted
of the one charge the same evidence
would scarcely convict him of the other.
This is his second trial. On the former
one ut New Cumberland he was conr*
vieted, but Judge Boyd, before whom
the trial took place, gave him a new trial
n on account of misconduct on the part of
L- the jurors. In addition to this a change
j. of venue was granted to Brooke county,
where the case was called yesterday be0
fore Judge Jacob.
!- The court house is not a roomy struct
ture and the crowd attracted by curiosv
ity, with the sixty men summoned as
* jurors, quickly tilled it to overflowing.
0 .Since the hist trial of the case, Prose[J
cuting Attorney Hervoy, of Brooke, luis
II been added to the array of ab!" counsel
on the side of the State, mainly, no
n doubt, because of his experienced judg[
inent regarding jurors and the like,
though it is said he is an able lawyer
Xi and an addition to any galaxy of talent.
Yesterday he and young Mr. Brown, of
' the counsel for the prosecution, found
y themselves alone. McSweeney, ol

burg, Marshall, of Hancock County, and
even Prosecutor HnIT, of that county,
[" fuilcd to put in an appearance for some
reason, much to the embarrassment of
*: the two young men of the defense, Col.
Moore, of Pittsburgh, Mr. Donehoo, of
u Fairview, Jiraddock of Wellsburg, and
Arnett, of Wheeling, were all present,
;* and Mr. Cooke, of SteubenviHe, arrived
' In the forenoou. At the request of the
prosecution the opening of the case
was postponed till 1:.'U) p. m. to wait for
? reinforcements, and the missing lawyers
showed up at that time, except Mr.
0 Hutchinson, who arrived a little later.
Baker was his own nonchalant self.
He slapped acquaintances on the back
'? and chatted with his lawyers as if he
were only u spectator.
is Col. Moore was very anxious that the
record should he complete and right.
The case will of course go to the Supreme
H Court of Appeals, and no resort will be
neglected by the defense. One thing is
ver v noticeable. There is a striking
* lack of the heated denunciation of the
t* prisoner which was so freely heard at
' >'ew Cumberland in the progress of the
former trial.
u Col. Moore at one time demanded a
1 bill of particulars, stating the time at or
L* about which the murder was committed,
but after a moment's whispered consul1
tation, he withdrew this demand.
o J ust after court had taken a recess, a
- strikingly pretty girl,apparently sixteen
or seventeen years old, neatly aud sim -
ply clad in a green costume, und with a
?1 flush of excitement on her cheeks which
j- heightened the lustre of her darlc eyes,
hastened into the court house, and ad0
dressing Sheriff Drown, preferred some
a request.- Tho Sheriff went into the
court room, hut camo back and said:
"He has gone."
The girl was Baker's daughter, Flora.
She was taken around to the county jail
0 in the rear of tho court house,.anil the
0 mcctimr with her father is described us
lt very aflecting,
h At the afternoon session Miss Flora
and her brother, "Stell" Baker, both sat
e in the court room. Tho young lady was
r, accompanied by another of her own age,
i- and divided with her father the attene
tion of the crowd of men which crowded
the room almost to suffocation,
,f Upon reassembling, Mr. Braddoek, on
behalf of the defense, stated that impor
taut witnesses who lived in Ohio and
g could not be compelled to attend, but
kt who luid attended the former trial and
were therefore supposed to be willing to
> attend this one, had declined to come.
' Tho Slate was asked to permit their
? former testimony to be treated us a dep"
osition, but refused, and after some dish
cuswion and another wait for -Mr.
(* Hutchinson, the defense modified its
request ami asked tho prosecution to
consent to take tho depositions in Ohio
'? during the progress of the trial. Col.
u Arnett suggested that the attorneys on
both side* were numerous enough to
,l make it possible to do this. The Estate
y refused.
8 Phcn time was asked by tho defense
? to prepare an alUdavit on which to base
a motion for a continuance. An hour
y was given and an hour and a half taken;
r at the end of which time the counsel for
>f tho State held that the ailidavit present>,
ed was not siifHcient. Tending this
I- issue, the courtadloumed till thin morn.
t- ing nt 9 o'clock.
3. It was the opinion of Bomo attorneys
i- that the Btato, rather than submit to a
., continuance, would waive its objections
to the introduction of u transcript of the
formerlpstimony. but othera suggested
that if this was the aim of the defense,
1 they must be disappointed. There is a
r general expectation that tho trial will
B proceed this morning.
r In tho discussion it was developed
y that one iinjiortant witness for the det
fenso, a German laborer, had died since
tho last trial from injuries received by
j a railroad accident near Pittsburgh.
3 "NVhcn Baker was taken from hero 1
to Wellsburg Monday night, according
to the Herald, it was not generally :
. known the prisoner would be brought 1
up on that train, bjit the word was eirj
eulateil within a square or two, and
4 quite a largo crowd was in waiting whep
, the train came in. Baker stepped light- 1
, ly from tho car, wearing about the style
of clothes in which he went through the
first trial, and looking about tho same.
He wore his conventional black kid
gloves, with tho hand-cuffs over them.
' Three of his counsel, Mr. Braddock, Col.
Moore and Mr. jtonejioo, were with him
and accompanied him as far as the iail.
On being pluced in a ceil Baker looked
around, and remarked to tho deputyi
"Why, this is cheerful and pleasant ' I
like this much better than Wheeling
or ,Vew Cumberland." The crowd which
had followed thp Prisoner down street
Ktill remained about tho jail, many of
them curious to see the prisoner whose
notoriety has spread far and wide. At
J i o'clock ot night a number of persons
were still iu the vjuinity of the jail.

A special meeting of Council was held
last evening, having been called by Acting
Mayor Giileland at the request of
the requisite number of members, for
the purpose of considering an ordinance
granting to "The Citizens Company" the
right to iay ami maintain pipes in the
streets, alleys and public grounds of
Wheeling for conducting natural gas to
be used for heating purposes. The ordinance
was passed by both branches. As
presented to Council it was almost an
exact copy of the ordinance giving to the
Manufacturers' (Wheeling) Company
the orivileires iteniovs. It wan umciul
ed in two or three particular*, but not
in a manner objectionable to the company.
There was an unusually large turn out
of members ami the lobby was tilled
with prominent citizens of a class that
are seldom seen iti the Couucil chamber.
All the members of the First Branch
put in an appearance at one time or another
during the evening, and the only
absentees from the Second were Messrs.
Bremer, Caldwell and Marsh.
Among those in the lobbv were noticed
the following: John l>. Culbertson,
Col. Thomas O'Brien, .1. R, McCortney,
Frank J. ilearne, Capt Chas.
J. Rawing, Major Ran Stalnaker, John
M. Sweeney, W. II. Ilearne, J. D. Du
Bois, I). K. Brooks, B. F. Caldwell, C.

John Brown, l1. M. Rhodes, George G.
Hannan, John II. Hull, A. I). Seamou,
Dr. G. Baird, J. M. IS wing, N. E. Whitaker,
Jacob Grubb and others.
This large turnout of both Councilmen
and citizens was a forcible demonstration
of the interest that has been
aroused over the gas juestion, since the
advance in rates made by the Natural
Gas Company of West Virginia.
The Second Branch was called to order
about 8 o'clock and the minutes of the
last meeting read. The call for the
special meeting was read and ordered
filed. The chair then laid before the
branch the ordinance, which was read
three timesVind passed with the amendments
as noted below.
The first section provides that the new
company has the privilege to lay pipes
to conduct natural gas "for heating pmposes
to the several manufactories operated
by such persons, lirms and corporations
engaged and to be engaged in manufacturing
in the city of Wheeling, as
may desire the Citizens' Gas Company
to furnish them with gas; luit no right
is hereby granted to transport natural
gas for sale to others than such persons,
lirms and corporations, or otherwise than
for the use and consumption of such
persons, lirms and corporations in their
business at their respective manufactories."
Mr. Harrell o tie rod the following
as one of the conditions of the grant by
the city to the company:
"In case of the failure of the company
now furnishing gas to the buildings anil
water works of the citv through bursted
pipes, failure of suppfy at the wells or
any other cause, the said Citizens' company
shall furnish gas to the said building
and water works free until such
time as the Natural Gas Company of
West Virginia is again able to supply its
This provoked a general discussion
that lasted for nearly one hour. The I
amendment was finally voted down by
11 vote of 14 to 10.
Mr. Jones offered as an amendment,
as a condition of the grant, that the com-1
pany by its acceptance of the ordinance1
agree to give employment to Wheeling
laboring men, so far"as possible, in the
construction of its line. This was adopted.
Mr. Youim created some surprise by |
offering the following as an amendment:
"Hv the acceptance of this ordinance
the Citizens Gas Company agree that
they and their successors or lessees shall
not charge h greater price for gas than is j
charged for the samo service by competitors
or other gas companies within a
radius of 100 miles from the city."
It was only necessary, in order to kill
this proposal promptly, tor the friends of
the ordinance to call attention to the
fact that Pittsburgh was much nearer
the uiim lields than Wheeling, and that
Washington county was showing signs
of becoming a manufacturing centre,
and that the adoption of the amendment
would practically end the existence
of the new company.
The following offered by Mr. Gruse
was adopted: The streets when broken
by Maid company shall be repaired by
the Board of Public Works at the expense
of the company.
This was in lieu of the following,
which was stricken out of the ordinance:
"If the company fails to make such repairs,
the said Hoard may make the
same at the company's expense,"
In the First Branch Mr. Delbruggo
offered an amendmeut which the body
refused to adopt, pioviding that the
company in laying its mains shall not
tear up any street now paved with brick |
unless it be to cross the same.
Mr. Delhi ugge offered another amendment
which the Branch adopted, to the
effect that the new. company, as one of
imis couujuons 01 uic grant, agrees 10
furnish any building of the city's not
now supplied with gas, or which may be
built in the future, with gas free of cost.
The Second concurred in this amendment,
and the ordiuance was adopted.
The resolution providing for the payment
to Mr. J. A. Faris of $.">00 for his
picture, "The Seige of Tort Ilenry,"
was again taken up and at last adopted
by a styond majority vote. This time it
was 1J{ to 8. At one* time it was nearly
downed again by amotion to refer it to
the Committee on Ileal ftstate, Mr.
Kraft having asserted that that committee
had never considered the matter nor
authorized the original report to Council.
In the First Branch the resolution
went through by a vote of 10 to II, and
Mr. Faris can now get his money.
Hills aggregating $10<l 81) presented by
the Committee on City Prison were ordered
Mr. Maxwell's resolution providing
that the Committee on Ordinances and
the City Holioltor, at u cost not to exceed
51,000, have compiled and reprinted the
ordinances of the city, was taken up for
the purpose of having another majority
vote, in order that it be properly adopted.
Mr. Allison offered the following as a
JU*oht:dt Thfltftho pommittceon Ordinances
be and are hereby instructed ami
authorized to obtain bids for compiling
and reprinting the Legislative Acts constituting
the charter of tho City of
Wheeling, and tho existing ordinances
jf the city with a suitable index therein
md to report the same to Council.
This started one of those peculiar
Ijseussions for which this Branch is
loteil, and the entjre natter was finally
ndettnitely postponed.
Mr. Gruse s street sweeping ordinance
,vas agaiti brought forward and alter
mother wordy period, the scheme was .
cnocked in the head. Clouds ot dust

The Board of Public \Vorks reported :
is follows:
"We respectfully report that after pay- i
ngthe pay roll for the two weeks end- i
ng June 2,188$, and the bills audited
I line 4, 18S8, the whole amounting to {

"We have been compelled to stop all

Mr. Wheat asked permission to introduce
an important matter. He said he j
had prepared a resolution instructing '
the ltoard of Water Commissioners to
employ a competent hydraulic engineer
to make a test of all the mains in the
city; ascertain what the pressure is at n
the lowest point, and report to the J
Board all of his observations in writing;
and appropriating ?.'00 for the work.
His reason forotfering the resolution was
that there is now existing a doubt
in regard to the strpngth of tho mains
to sustain further increased pressure
from a higher service; he wanted the
matter determined before the city was
put to what might prove to be an enormous
While Mr. Wheat was still talking and
before he had ottered his resolution, *
there was a cry for adjournment, and the 1
chair recognizing it as a motion to ad- |
journ,putthe same and it was carried
while Mr. Wheat still had possession of
the floor. <
In the First Branch Mr. McGregor 1
offered a resolution instructing the tl
uomuuuee on u romances 10 report an

or throw on the streets auy paper or

Mr. Dobbins offered a resolution ordering
the Committee on Finance to report

A Warning.
The modes of death's approach are
various, and statistics show conclusively
that more persons die from diseases of
the Throat aud Lungs than any other.
It is probable that everyone, without ex- j
ccption, receives vast numbers of Tubercle
Germs into the system and where
these germs fall unon suitable soil they ?
start into lifo ami develop, at first slowly
and is shown by a slight tiekling sensa- t
tinn in t.ln> tlimiit nnil if nllow?Mi to ron
tinuo their ravages they extend to the
lungs producing Consumption and to <
the head, causing Catarrh. Now all this
is dangerous and if allowed to proceed 1
will in time cause death. At the onset c
you must act with promptness; allowing
a cold to go without attention is danger- \
ous and may lose you your life. As soon j
as you feel that something is wrong
with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, obtain
"a bottle of Boschee's German j
Syrup. It will give you immediate relief.

The determination caused confusion and
there were dire threats made, but to no
purpose. Finally a resolution was '
adopted releasing Mr. Brady from the i
binding unit rule and he will act independently.
In conversation he was ,
more cautious, but still the strong opposition
showed itself in his remarks.

Gen. l'nt Collin* the Man?Utile Adopted
to Prevent n Stampede.
St. Louis, Juno 5.?The rumors that
a formidable show of opposition would
be made to the appointment of General
Patrick A. Collins, of Boston, as Permanent
Chairman of the convention, were
ouicklv denied this evening when the
Committee 011 Organization assembled
for tho first time. It had been reported
that Henry Wattcrson would be pushed
for the place, and that General Collins
would be fought until compelled to
forego tho honor.
The committee proceeded first with
its own organization before the taking
up of the convention. L. B. Cussid^*, of
Pennsylvania, was made chairman of
the committee, and John R. Castleman
obtained the post of Secretary. Then it
became evident that 110 contest against
Collins was to be waged, the understanding
being that Mr. Waterson had
peremptorily declined to allow his name
to be used against Mr. Collins. The
nomination of Mr. Collins was made byMr.
llanrahan, of Vermont. Mr. Castleman,
of Kentucky, seconded Mr. Collins'
name and lie was selected unanimously
for recommendation to the convention.
II. II. Ingersoll was selected without
opposition as the committee's choice for
the Convention's permanent Secretary.
Mr. Prince, the temporary Secretary,
and all his assistants, were retained for
the permanent organization, as Mr. Ingersoll's
helpers. A matter that may
prove to be of l(?ss importance in exciting
moments of the Convention than
the choice of permanent Chairman, then
came before the committee. It was tho
adoption of rules to govern the great assembly.
After a tame discussion the suggestion
made to-day in the Convention
by Governor Green, of New York, was
acquiesced in. This was to adopt the
rules of tho last National Democratic
Convention with the significant addition
that during a roll call no State having
once voted shall be allowed to
riuuigf ua vuw iiuiii ?iii iiif 'iiiu-in mite
voted. The committee hold another
meeting to-morrow morning to put itenotion
into formal shnpo for the Convention.
