it out of the farmer's stocking, out ol

States bonds, and put it in mines, and

that they could hire men and women
and pay them good wages and enable us
to compete with the naif-paid laborers
of Europe.
The Senator proceeded to draw a contrast
between the cost of a factory in t*>e
United States and in Europe. The
lal>or, he said, would amount to 90 per
cent, of the cost, and a factory built here
would cost $400,000 ugainst $200,000
there. The comparison made between
wages in this country and abroad was
striking. When he asked if there was
any screw loose in his statement, he w?
met with cries of ''Not at all," "Hood,"
"That's right," etc. The speaker went
into the question of wages here and in
Kuropc, and asserted that careful investigation
showed that the rate here is
about twice as high. He then described
his personal experiences in Europe,

Washington, I). C., July 0.?A DemDcratie
member of the House was at the
Kxecutive mansion the other day talking
to Mr. Cleveland about the approach
iug campaign, when the character of
the two Republican candidates came up.
Hie President stated that he hoped his
party would not mistake itself in estimating
the strength of Harrison and Morton
; that both men had clean and strong
characters, and were immensely popular
in their States; besides this, they
would grow on the people as the campaign
progresses, and there was nothing
but general principles to be brought
igainst them, and these principles were
laid dowu in the platform. This member
of Congress tells me that the PresiJent
is auything but easy of mind on
the subject of re-election; that while he
lias abiding faith in his platform, and believes
that a majority of the people favor
radical revisions of the tariff and a strong
tendency toward free trade, he thinks the
Republicans will work up a wonderful
feeling among manufacturers and laborers.
The President thinks lie
s going to have the farmers with him
md the non-producers in the large cities,
l'liis is where lie banks his success. He
jelieves that the farmers are in favor of
unking raids upon the manufacturing
nterests because they have no direct inerest
in manufactures, while thev are
arge consumers of manufactured articles.
lie says the Republicans will have
iphill work demonstrating to the farmers
that the Mills tariU' bill, as claimed
jy the Republicans, is diametrically opposed
to their individual interest.* Mr.
Jlcveland said, in his conversation, that
le had no desire to run around over the
ountry during the campaign, but that
10 intended to visit a number of sections
ipon the request of societies, and that
le would not only be seen but heard.
Mr. Cleveland intends to make his
ourneys late in the campaign, so that
lis presence in localities will arouse
nthusiasm in his party. He contends
.hat he will not make political speeches,

Washington, D. C.,\J uly G.?More has

Cleveland's letter to Tainman v than
)f anything ho has done for many a
nontli. His sentiments expressed in
hat letter on the subject of tariff created
lurprise, even among Democrats who
lave given him credit of being a sincere
ree trader. It is a common remark
hat tlio President is trying to hedge on
lie tariff, and he is being subjected to
levere criticism from Southern Democrats
and some of his party friends in
Sew England who declare that if he
intends to begin trimming his sails thus
. arly for protection votes they will leave
tiirn". I?ess than seven months ago
Cleveland wrote a message to Congress
which smacked so strongly of free trade
that it caught the support of such CobJen
club followers as Frank Hurd and
lleury George. Now free trade Democrats
in the House say he is flirting with
the protectionists through Tammany.

on River avenue. Alleirbenv Citv.
near Kerr's Island, exploded shortly
after four o'clock this afternoon, wrecking
Beverul buildings and seriously injuring
six persons, three of whom will
probably die. The following are the ,
names of the injured: ,
William Wetzkl, engineer, leg blown (
oir ana terribly burned; will die.
Cnuisr Nkidt, aged 27 years, bruised |
and scalded; injuries believed to be <
L. L. Fa kmc, aged 43, burned, bruised

Otto Bkruhaexdleu, aired 2h, bruised
and scald0(1; will recover.
John Staaii, about 25 years of age, arms,
face and body badly burned; not
fatallv hurt.
Annie Myers, aged 12 years, crushed aud
bruised; very serious.
A large number of others, mostly employes,
were slightly bruised and cut by
being struck by Hying debris.
The cause of"the explosion is believed
to have been high pressure. A few minutes
after four o clock Wetzel, the engineer,
noticed that the pressure was
higher than usual and started for the
furnace to turn down the natural gas.
Before he had time to do so, however,
there was a terrible explosion aud Wetzel
was blown up through the roof of
the tannery and lauded in the yard.
The concussion was terrific. One side
of the main building, a brick and frame
structure, 200 feet long, was blown out
and a portion of the front was badly
wrecked. The boiler house, 50 feet long
by 42 wide, built of brick, was totally
demolished, and the ollice, which was
situuted across the street,was completely
A heavy double wagon was blown
against Wetzel's residence, sixty feet
away, and the side of the house crushed
in. One section of the boiler was carried
across the Allegheny river, a distance
of over a thousand "feet. Another *

house, 1,200 feet away, and tore out one J
end of the building. A third piece 1
struck and killed a horse, and a fourth 1
almost cut a Grand Rapids & Indiana I
freight car in two.
Fully sixty men were at work in the 1
tannery, and all who were able to do so c
rushed panic stricken from the building.
The boners that exploded were twentyeight
feet long by forty-two inches in
diameter. They were of steel and had
been in use six Years. The damage by
the explosion will not exceed $20,000. " .
Engineer Wetzel died at 11 o'clock tonight,
and Annie Myers is not expected j
to live until morning. The others are t
resting easy. Mr. Groetzinger, one of c
the owners of the tannery, says that the j
boilers were inspected last year and
found to be in good condition.

A Sailor"* Story. r
PiTTsnunoii, I*a., July 0.?Among the 1
passengers who alighted from train No. 1
8 from Chicago this morning at the
Union depot, was a man dressed in the ;
costume of a United States sailor, lie
wna nnnnrnritlv nhout fortv-fivn vonrs of
age, and his well built figure and bronzed
face that told of years of service would
have attracted attention anywhere. During
the time he was in the depot he told
his history to a press representative,
lie said *
"Thirty years ago I was living with
my mother on a farm in Michigan, not
far from Detroit. My father was dead
and mother was having a hard time on
the farm, and I was doing all I could to
help her alonir. Then the war came and
I got the enlistment fever ami wanted to
go iuto the army, but mother begged
with me not to go. and for a time I gave
it up. In 1802, when I was fifteen years
old, I could not stand it any longer, but
ran away from home and enlisted in the
naval service and went to sea on the
Cumberland, the vessel that was afterward
sunk by the rebel nun Merrimac.
I did not stay on her long, but was transferred
to the fleet 011 the Mississippi and
was at Vicksburg and New Orleans. 1
was 011 Admiral Farragut's flagship
at the latter place, when he wus
lashed to the mast head and took
the lead. Well, after the war was over
11 started for home, anxious to see
| mother, and surprise her with the prize
| money and wages i nnu huvuu, una uiai,
I knew, would ue enough to keep her j
from ever having to want or work again. '
In Chicago 1 got word that mother was 1
dead. It was an awful blow to me, for
during all the time I was away I had not
heard from home, and I felt that it was
my conduct in running awav that had
killed her. No one will ever know how
near heart-broken I was, and not having
courage enough to go on and re-visit the 1
old home, I turned back again and en- j
listed in the navy, where I have con- ,
tinued ever since. I have been around
the world three or four times and seen '
almost everything a man could see. My
last enlistment expired a couple of
months ago in San Francisco, and while
there 1 met an old schoolmate ,
from Detroit, aud you cau imagine how
surprised I was to learn that the word I
had received before was untrue, and that
my mother was still living and had
moved to Washington City. I at once j
wrote to her, and it was not long until I
heard from her. She had thought I was ,
dead, but, God bless the dear old mother,
she will soon find how lively I am. I
am getting to her .just as fast as 1 can
travel, and although she is no longer
young, she will have everything she
wants while she lives, for I have more
than we can spend. and there is nothing
in the world that will ever draw me away
from her again."
As the sailor talked of his mother
tears rolled over his cheeks, and some of
the bystanders who overheard him were
also affected. He gave his name as Ben
Cooper and left for Washington on the
day express.

Chicaoo, July 6.?The story of a bold
highway robbery on Central Boulevard,
in this city, the evening of the Fourth,
which the police sought to keep secret,
lias come to light
At the time Humboldt Park was filled
with people, and numbers of celebratora
were on their way down on the neighboring
streets crossing the Boulevard.
Frederick F. Sherman, with S. Henry
Dunning and two other men, were driving
north on the Boulevard in a twoseat
buggy. Just ait they were reaching
Chicago avenue, a wagon containing
three men drove directly in front ol
them on tho interceding street, bringing
them to a halt.
The three men leaped from the wagon,
and at the same time two others sprang
from a hiding place at the side of tho
Boulevard. Sherman and his three
friends were dragged from their buggy
by tne nve oaring imeves, despite iuuu
resistance. Dunning and Sherman stood
their ground, but their two friends took
to flight. One of the thieves tore out
the whole front of Sherman's shirt to
get his $350 diamond stud.
Two men who saw the assault upon
the occupants of the buggy ran up, and
the thioves leaped into their wagon and
drove away. The police have hopes ol
capturing them.

Brodcrick and Bowles also claim that

"No, sir, and if it had it would have
been sat down on pretty strongly, I as- ;
sure you. Chief Arthur and myself !
have done all in our power to restrain
the tendency of violence on the part of !
the radical element in the Brotherhood.

of the case?"
"Well, hardly," he replied. "You ,
know more about the facts than J do,
and until I learn more I am not going to !
express an opinion either way, except (
as far as the Brotherhood is concerned. !
This much I say most emphatically?if ;
these men have been guilty of any wrong

to drag the order into the scrape be- ,
cause two of the members have been ar- (

Bauerisn is cliiel engineer of Divis- j

which is one of the principal lodges

a member of the (ieneral Grievance Committee
and is also chairman of the Au- I
rora Local Grievance Committee. He
was arrested under the United States
Statutes which prohibit the carriage of j
dynamite on passenger trains. Bauerisn
was arrested this morning at his house '
in Aurora while he was still in bed. i
Beyond this Mr. .Stone was not dis- i
nosed to talk, but it was evident that
both ho and the other oillcers at the
company's headquarters regarded the '
arrest as the most important one yet
made. 1

morning was an open faced, broad :
shouldered man of about 35, whose 1
bronzed, honest looking features bore a '
look of mingled astonishment and anx- 1
iety. The man was John Bauerisn, the 1
Chief Engineer of the Brotherhood of ;
Aurora, and alleged dynamiter. He was
gazing straight across'the street iuto the
National Hotel, where the headquarters
of the striking engineers and firemen 1
have of late lieen located. Near him
were a couple of Deputy Marshals. None 1
of the officials of the Brotherhood had
been to see Bauerisn. Messengers wore
being dispatched for them by United j

Bauerisn talked fnmklv. To an Asso- 1
ciated l'ress reporter he said:
"I know nothing whatever of the
charges preferred against mo. The ar- '
rest was a total surprise. Of course I ;
have nothing to do with dynamite."
"Are you acquainted with these other,
men who have been arrested?" was :
"Bowles, I know, from the fact that
he has been in my division of the Broth- 1
erhood. The others I have no acquaintance
"Didn't you suspect that you were being
watched, Mr. Bauerisn 7"
"Not any more than anybody else.
We havo known that there were detectives
around in Aurora dogging us men,
but 1 had no reason to suppose that 1
was particularly singled out.'
jiaven i you ueen away irora Aurora

"Not at all. I have been quietly at

since the strike commenced, except two
days that I was attending a committee
meeting in Chicago."
"You were taken out of your bed by
tho officers while the family were still
asleep were you not, Mr. Bauerisn?"
"Not exactly. The hired girl was up.
I was just arising. There was a knock

What the Friend* t?r 31r. ilemlcraon Sii,
1II? Wife Now Minding.
Cleveland, 0., July 0.?-The friends <
S. E. Henderson, who committed su
cide at the As tor Ilouse, in New Yorl
last night, are unable to uccount for th
man's awful deed. He had always, t
all appearances,' been in excellent healt
and in good spirits.
Mr. Henderson was in his forty-eightl
year, and is survived by his wife inn
three children. For two years he hat
been the manager of the Gordon Lauij
and Brass Work, and he was in the habi
of taking annual business trips to Nev
York. A year ago he and Mrs. Mender
son made a prolonged stay there.
They started for the metropolis las
[Sunday, and intended to be absent threi
weeks." Mr. IIenderson seemed to iool
forward to the trip with the greatest in
terest, and anticipated an enjoyable va
cation. A letter received from Mrs
Henderson last Tuesday said that every
thing was progressing favorably, ant
that they were uaving a pleasant visit
Nothing"more was heard from them uu
til the receipt of the telegram announ
ring his death.
A relative of Mr. Henderson stated
that he had not been, so far as known,
meiancuoiy or suueriug iruui any caiuu*.
and that it wns utterly impossible t<
imagine the motive that prompted him
to take his lifo. He wits scat to Now
York to consummate a dual of considerable
importance for the works, which
would indicate that his relations with
the company were all right. Ho ha?
boon with the works two years and, according
to Mr. Patrick 11. Keevan, the
Superintendent, he never had any trouble
with the concern. "If he had." said
Mr. Keevan, "the company would not
have intrusted him with the misson to
go to New York and make this deal."
Mr. Henderson had the reputation of
being one of the shrewdest managers in
the sewing machino business and he
helped to organize the Leader Sewing
Machine Company. At that time he
was well to do; but he met with financial
reverses and went to'.the wall, which
raused him to accept a position with
the W. J. Gordon Lamp au<l Brass Company.
A Now York dispatch says: Catherine
Henderson, wife of Samuel Henderson,
the man from Cleveland, Ohio, who is
supposed to have committed suicide at
lliu Ahtor House uist nignt, loll the
liotel Hhortly after her husband's body
was removed to the undertaker's. The
clerk in the hotel eould not tell where
the lady hud gone. No nussages have
been received from Cleveland in answer
to the telegrams sent last night.
An autopsy made by Deputy Coroner
Ilerold this morning showed that the
man's death was due to carbolic acid
poisoning. Evidences of this were
plainly visible in the scortched condition
of the deceased's mouth and the
extreme intlammation of the interior
walls of the stomach. Some little time
doubtless elapsed after the man took the
fatal draught before the antidote whs
administered. Kemnants of the latter
were still discernible, but tho acid had
tlone its fatal work before it was used.
The result reached demonstrates that
Lho man's death was of his own doing
entirely, and the suspicions which
rested on his wife are dispelled. She
was under the surveilanco of tiie police
through the night, Coroner Kidman,
in view of all the circumstances surrounding
the case.

the face of the remains were uncovered
site burst forth: "Oh, Joe, oh,
.Toe, you were such a good man ami

My heart is broken. Oh, why did you
kill yourself, my poor boy?" Tho tears
rolh'd down the old lady's checks, and
she became so faint and weak that she
had to be helped to a seat. She then
told the following story: "About four
