r. Mirtin, o! Pleasant township,
brought to the County Infirmary here
to-day, a frightful monstrosity. This
hein?, which cm hardly be called a human,
ia an objoci of curiosity and interest
; it resembles a sarpant ia appear*
ance and in its writhing movements
much more than it does a man.
Your correspoidant visited the Inlirmary
and s?wtho thing, and from Mr.
.Martin learned of its peculiarities. The

never uttered a word. Tho parents lived

tefligent and well to do, and until lately,
when thr; mother died, kept this bod at]
home entirely secluded, and but fowl
people ever knew of the existence of'
such an unnatural offspring within the
neighborhood.
Tne head of the thing looks like that
of a huge snake; the eyes are small andI
set far hack in the head, which bears no |
resemblance to that of jmiafl. At times
this peculiar being becomes almost uncontrollable
and will dart from place to
place with lightning-like rapidity. At
night it is necessary to allow a light to
chine into the room or it will not lie
down to sleep. This man-snake
does not seem to possess a singlu
idea and its mouth is so
shaped that it will not admit of anything
but liquid food. Ho has subsisted
aiuce birth upon a sort of thin gruel,
which he takes from a vessel with the
eagerness of a hop. The limbs of the
man are unnaturally small, although at
times ho seems to possers inhuman
strength. Many people examined this
peculiar being to-day, and without a
doubt it would bring a fortune to the
owner of a museum.

and their exodus, coupled with a large
consignment ot relief money, baa braced
tbe backbones of tbe 1-1,000 strikers still
out; the labor headquarters are radiant
to-night, as compared with tbe deep
gloom of tbe few days past. Ai the
saldiers boarded the train hitter epithets
were hnrled after them. Two companies
were left at Morewood, where they are
expected to remain.
Operators are growing nervous and
have doubled the guards at several
points. The Frick Company shipped

tbe total up to 135 cars. Several hundred
eviction notices were nerved to-day
and a dozen tame evictions occurred.

they met with euch determined opposition
yesterday. Small-a'zid riots are
now of nightly occurrence they are

that serious rioting will in all probability
be again ree'orted to. Bwretner

Mam Meeting at St. Louie.
uhicauo, April i/??me stnie o?tweeu
Miss Phoebe Couzina and the Executive
Committee of the Lady Managers
of the World's Fair over the Secretaryship,
continues. Thero is no change
in the situation. Miss 0 juzins to-day
received a note from Colonel Jones, proprietor
of the St. Louis J&jpublic, in
which ho says: "Of course, trie Executive
Committee has no more right to remove
you from your office aa Hecretary,
than you have to remove the Executive
Committee of Mrs. Palmer. Maintain
your position firmly, ia my emphatic
suggestion." J. B. McCullough, editor
of the St. Louis Globe Democrat, telegraphed
that there hud Li-en issued a call
lor a massmeetiug to protest against the
condition of things.
The incident oi the day was the receipt
of a letter from Mies Couzine warning
the Executive Committee not to go
any further in the matter at the peril of
their peace of mind. Miss Cuuzins forgot
to eigu her name to the peppery
epistle.
To-night the Executive Committee
issued a manifesto of twenty-two pages
giving wtiat purports to be the history
of the trouble resulting in Mies Couzin's
removal.

while Republican meeting ever held in
the State, and it is said to be largely the
outgrowth fit the Alliance wave which
swept over this State this year. The
significance of the meeting was tho
presence of a number of leading white
citizens who have heretofore been associated
with the straixhtout Democratic
party. Fifty-one clubs were represented.
The meeting elected delegates to the He*
publican League convention which
meets at Cincinnati April 21. This
movement is regarded with some concern
here, token as it is in connection
with the repeated declaration of the
Alliance in favor of a third party.

Washisqtok, D. C? April 17.?Congressmen
William L. Wilson bu departed
on his missionary tour ol the
Northwest. lie will begin hia labora at
St. Paul, and from thence preach the
doctrine of pnre Democracy in ail the
principal towns to the Pacific coast He
expects to be gone two months, and,
incidentally, with the interests oi the
Democratic party, he undoubtedly hopes
to do bis own Speakorahip boom some
good.
Just beforo leaving he tallied quite
freely on the subject of the Speakership
of the neit House. Like ail the other
candidate?, Mr. Wilson is.inclined to be
a little jealous of Crisp, of Georgia. His
opinion is that Crisp and Mills are practically
a tio at present, though from the
fact that Crisp baa, and has had for some
time, active workers out, the Lone Star
statesman ib just now perhapa somewhat
in the rear. These active workers are
what stir up the other candidates. Nobody
except Crisp has done anything of
tliia kind, although all have their particular
representatives empowered to act for
them. While Mr. Wilaon would not of
course, aay ao in so many words, he, in
common with the others, evidently
thinks this course h little premature on
the part of the gentleman from Georgia.
However, he believes that Mills will
eventually rccover the lost ground and
onltoKIn m!n? (ft? Milla ro(WIP/?Q tho if!.
utnph of the Democrats lust fall as in
large measure due to hia individual efforts,
and bis followers will use thia point
for all it ia worth. The Speakership,
thereforo, should go to him by default.
Unfortunately tho other gentlemen
interested don't look at the case in thi*
light. There is going to be ono 0/ the
greatest contests for the prize in the history
of the office. Mr. Wilson says that
Springer will lead oil with the solid
Illinois delegation, Bynum with a solid
Indiana delegation, and Hatch, of Missouri,
McMillan, of Tennessee, and
Crisp and Mills respectively, with their
own States solid; and no one man ran
tell how long each man can hold his
forces or what gains he will make in the
debatable ground. When Mr. Wilson's
own candidacy was mentioned and his
availability aB a man who was said to be 1
acceptable as second choice all around
discussed, the gentleman from West ;
Virginia, with lna usual modesty, re* .
marked simply tnat ho had no agents
out, nobody authorized to speak for I
him, an^ only knew from hearsay that
he might play the role of compromise {
candidate with distinguished success. '
He expected, he Baid, to have bis State '
delegation, at least, to start with, and 1
porhapB a few more votes, and he would '
of course gladly accept the honor if the
election came to him, but he couldn't '
prophesy yet.
"Will the rules be changed by the
next House?" he was asked. 1
"Undoubtedly," said Mr. Wilson. :
"roe next opeaaer wia not uu ttuuweu
to count a quorum, for one thing."
"Do you menu to say that tho idea of '
conatrnctive absence' will again be rec- i
ognissed ?'.' ]
"That's it exactly," eaid he. "We will
revive that doctrine with great vigor; \
and in other waya curtail the Sneaker's 1
power to a very largo oxtent. The Com- <
inittee on Ilules will have considerably
leas to say in tho next House than in
the last. 0, we are going back to Jeflereonian
simplicity nnd first principles. ]
No, 1 don't apprehend any trouble in ,
particular on account of our large ma- j
jority. Of course large majorities are f
always unwieldy, but we will get along (
without any more than the ordinary
amount of friction, (hope. The Speakership,
you know, is never abed of roses;
but thero are several of us willing to lie <
on it." *
"What will bo the leading questions J
before the next Congress?" 1
"Tariff and the silver question," was
the reply. "The House will surely pass
a free sjl?er.fcill, and will try to do some- 4
thing in the way of altering the McKinlev
bill. The Senate will pass a free
silver measure; but what it will do with
tariil matters remains to be seon. We <
hope that enough Senators will join us j
in return for free silver to at least make ,
a veto nepfwary. At any rate we will
try. No, I haven't anything to say
about Hill and Cleveland.'' j

TWO BROTHERS HAWED.
Laat Act of an Indian Territory Tragedy?
The Crime for WlUeh the Danawaej
Brother* 8wnug.
Tabijwiah, L T., April 17.?The two
Dunawaa brothers vera hong here at
1:30 o'clock thia afternoon in the pretence
ol a large concourse of people.
Everything passed off quietly.
The crime for which George and Fred
Dnnawaa paid the penally of the law was
the murder of Waah Lee, near thia place,
on'.Eeptember 27, 1890. Waah Lee was
a Cherokee and had a wife and two
daughters, one of them married to a Mr.
Tlckaneeskee. A ahort time prior to
the murder a scandal arose in the neighborhood
which affected Mra. Tlckaneeskee.
The origin of the acandal, it is
s>id, waa traced to Mrs. Lizzie Dunawaa,
Fred's wife. All the partlea concerned
met at Mrs, Chambers', a neighbor, and
Wash Lee attacked Fred Dnnawaa, and
Mrs. Lee gave Mra. Ounawaa a eevere
drubbing, after which they separated.
On the 26lh Fred and George Dnnawaa
returned to the Chambers residence and
were ordered away by Lee, who happened
to be there. Lee struck George,
who drew hia pistol and fired; Fred alao
opened fire. The firing did not ceaae
until the Dunawas had both emptied
their cylinders, after which they fled.
In pursuit of them Lee siogled out Fred
as the most deserving object of hia vengeance,
and was pushing him hard in
the flight when, upon reaching a small
tree, he swung himself suddenly around
It. This manoeuvre enabled Fred not
only to ball]a hia pursuer but to deal a
blow in his own defense. He struck
Lee upon the bead with the barrel of his
empty pistol, who reeled and fell to the
ground, where he died. A large and
earnest petition waa presented to Chief
Juslice Mayes asking a commutation of
sentence, but executive clomency could
not be secured.

but a respite arrived from Governor '
uoyu in umu 10 pruveui. iub carrying oui ,
of the sentence. The respite is for thirty
days, and in that time a commission
will examine into the prisoner's sanity.
A later dispatch from Broken Bow,
says that a large crowd of farmers has
gathered and threaten to lynch the
murderer if he is not hung by this even*
in?.
The crime for which Hauenstein wa9
to have been hung, was committed
November U, 1888. A clock
and eome coal and lumber had
been taken from a school bouse and Hauenstein
was suspected of being the
thief. Hiram Rolen, the Moderator of
the district, accompanied by Wm. Ashley,
went to Hauenstein'a bouse in
Bearch of the property. They found the
clock, took pobseBslon of it, and started
away without any tronble or bard words.
They had gone but a few feet from the c
bouse, however, when Hauenstein step*
ped to the door and shot them both, c
killing them instantly. He then took J
nbout $40 from their clothes, hitched up o
tiis team, and, taking his wife, drove t
about twenty miles northwest. He was c
captured on a train near Oolumbus, No- (
member 22,1888. He was tried in April, \
1889. and sentenced to hang September b

o'clock, alter an ail flight run from Birmingham.
No stops were made in Mississippi
and the only Incident of the run
occurred at Jasper, Alabama. That
town was illniuinate^ with many bonfires
in honor ol the President and nearly
2,600 of the inhabitants gathered at
the station to pay their respects. It was
11 o'clock whon the train reached there
and ihe President, ^Postmaster General
Wanamaker and all the ladies of the
party had retired for the night. Tbe
people were disappointed at not being
Hhle to see the President, bnt wero gratified
at being allowed to pass through
and Inspect the observatory car.
This morning when the train reached
Belleview, a station seven miles from
this city, it was boarded by a committee
of cillsens from Memphis. A number
of ladies accompanied tbe party with
bouquetaof rosea. A largo crowd, including
tbe local militia, were gathered
attho elation and cheered the President
when be appeared on the platform. He
was introduced by Mayor Clapp, who
welcomed the President on behalf of the
city.
In response the President made a neat
and fitting speech, saying:
"The namo of this city was familiar to
me in my earlv boyhood. Bora and

75 per cent of the cotton of the

of it. I see evidence that the peoile

iver towns will speedily exchange their
inrdeus with American shipB at the

And Tftjlor Foreman Held to Conrt LMt
Night.
The hearing of the charge of grave
robbery against Sr. John It. Pipes and
Taylor Foreman, which was commenced
Thursday night and was continued till
last night, waacommenced at 8:30 o'clock
last evening at J ustice Arkle's otlice.
The first witness called was Mies K. N.
Douglas, a woman who had been employed
as a nurse at the Infirmary at the I
time the body was stolen, and at the i
time Foreman waa in charge of the in- i
btitution. She said: "I live about three <
miles west of Bridgeport, on the National I
road, with my father and mother; I was
employed as a nnrao at the Infirmary on f
January IS, 1890, and was there till I
April 1, 18IH. Taylor Foreman waa ?
Superintendent; I saw Dr. Pipes at the
Infirmary three times while I was there;
he was there once on 8uuday with another
man; be went at once to 11
tbo hospital with Taylor Foreman; v
he only stayed a few minutes; be and t
Foreman were in the room with the
corpse the evening Watabecker died;
Foreman told iuo that the corpse had to
be held to givo Mrs. Watabecker a
chance to take it away if aha cared to;
the next day she called and looked at the
corpse and said that she was not able to
pay for a funeral; sho took a lock of V
bis hair and left for town; Foreman *
cmiie in later and said that Dr. Pipes R
wonld take the body; I asked if he could
come out on the motor, and he said be n
would cntne in a wagon: he and Dr.
Pipes came into the hospital at 4:30; n
Dr. Pipes came out on the motor; 1 c|
asked him if he was going to take the ?j
body, and be replied that he waa not; {j
he went back to the Grove hurriedly, Ai
and went in on the Bame motor on u
which he came out. it
That night I heard a wagon on the di
road near the hospital whore I slept; I tt
was up at the time; it was about 11:30 p. tt
rn.; there were three others in the room et
nt the time; William Branstroup, Mr. Be
Dreighton and my cousin, Miss Khane, n<
af Kim Grove; wo wore playing casino, to
it was not unutmal for us to spend the Q(
minings together in my room; the 31
wagon wont past the hospital aud ee
(topped at the entrance of the cemetery;
I do not know whether anyone was in it
he grounds or not. tb
Captain Downer then took the wit- ar
less and asked her if she had not lived d(
n Columbus, .Ohio. She replied that (]<
the had, and detailed the time at which <j(
ihehad gone there and the way she [e
ived. Captain Dovener then read a at
eiter from someone at Elm Grove to the ar
Columbus Sunday Capital in which the 01
writer said that her husband had aban> cc
foned her and that she was then workngasanurseat
Elm Grove in ahoapi- tit
al. This letter was read for the pur- at
jose of showing that the writer was a ai
carried woman and that if she was Ce
Jias Douglas she had been going under at
in assumed name. The Captain asked tii
tfidB Douglas if she was not the author ep
>f the letter, meaning to show that she tr
ras not sailing under her true colors and w<
hat her testimony might be impeached w
n that way, but she denied it. There
vas considerable talk between her and D
Japiain Dovener about whether she was Ut
ingle or married, but it had no particu- tl(
ar bearing on the case. tb
John Koch, a County Commissioner eg
ind a member of the Committee on [a
.'oor House and Farm, was called. He an
aid that the only reason that Foreman th
tad ever given him for wanting tbe ih
rornan Douglas dismissed, waa that dr
he and hia wife had had a quarrel and
hey did not Ret along well together.
Phis the Commissioners did not think '
-ulticient cause for her dismissal, so long da
a she did her duties well. Foreman hau jj
nee eaid to the witness that he had
loubts sb to her name being Douglas. th
Taylor Foreman was then placed upon [r
ho stand as a witness. He said: I was [J
iuperintendent of the Ohio County Inirmary
from April 1, 1889, to April 1, : ?
891. I never at auy time while I was

He was then taken in hand by Prose- ,
utor Howard. He reiterated what he t

Mr. Howard then interrogated the wit- up
less specifically as to his behavior to- in
rerd Miss Pouglasa and his iuportnning Oi
ler to commit criminal acts with her, de
>nd he replied no to all of them. of
He then asked a number of questions
oncerning Mr. Foreman's alleged im- w
noral conduct with a number of female
nmates, to all of which he answered no.
Dr. Pipes gave a satisfactory explana- \j
ion of his presence at the Infirmary.
Mips Douglas was sgain called, and ,
estitJed in contradiction to Mr. Foreman 'ei
n all tho thincs Mr. Howard had con* mi

Mr. Howard then addressed tbe court, G0

Adopted.
Kashas City, Mo,, April 17.?The
Western States Commercial Gongreis
was called to order at ten o'clock this
morning. Alter prayer, the progrsmmo
of yesterday was taken up and continued,
the subject being "Transportalion
and Improvement of Water Ways,
Lakes, Gul/s and Pacific Porte."
Mr. 8. A. Thompson, Secretary of tbe
Commercial Club, of Dnlntb, advocated
:he improvement of water ways aa
Hording the cheapest transportation.
Colonel T. 0. Catching?, of Mississippi,
irgned that an increue in water traffic,
lowever great, would not decrease railoail
business, but would rather inirease
it.
This afternoon Col. A. 0. Fisk.of Denter,
delivered an address upon "Irrlgaion."
a new 0rlkan8 man talkh.
Probably the liveliest speech of the
ession was deliverod by Mr. Wickliffe,
I Louisiana, who spoke on "Immigralon."
Mr. Wickliffe sold he would treat
>is snbjact from the text "America for
Imericans." "We have heen told," he
aid, "that this land is broad enough for
11, but I submit that the countries of
he Old World have made it the dunipng
ground for their paupers and crirnnal
class's, and I believe that I apeak
?r the whole American people when 1
ay mm ius ntdo hub come when they
mflt atop. There is enough room (or
U who want to come here to be one of
b, bat not a loot of ground for one of
lioeo paupers and criminals of the Old
Vorld. I may feel deeply upon the
abject, but 1 hive lately come fresh
rom a moat terrible object lesson,which
>o clearly indicates the need of >
banco in our immigration laws.
"I believe that this Congress ought to
eclare that the National Congress
loald prohibit the leading of immirante
who are not wiiliog to become
>od citizens. I think this law ought
i be pat iato such shape that no man
ho has not within a given time filed
is intention for citizenship, which la
[It altogether too short, and who has
at within another given time taken out
hat is known aa hia sccond papers,
ight to be shipped hack to the country
om which he had come.
A SK.VSlUI.lt STATES MOOTS DEMOCRAT,
"Let no man set foot upon the soil of
olumbia who cannot bring a true bill
moral cleanness, f am, ai some of
know, ; States' Rights Democrat,
it I believe the power to make Ameran
citizens ought to be taken from the
ate Courts and given to tho general
ivernment.
"Perhaps yon do not realize the need
all thia, but in lookingup the nationity
of those criminals whom tho citl>ns
of New Orleans executed not long
nee, we found that the naturalization
ipers of one of tlioae, his certificate of
)od moral character, waa certified to by
ro of bis fellow criminals. I believo
lat tho scenes which we have witnessed
iring the last few weeks ought to be
1 possible. The raising of the glorious
are and Stripes under that of a foreign
ig, as was done in my own State, and
le riddling of our flag with bullets, as
i Pennsylvania, very clearly indicates
lat the need of a change of policy as re
iniH our immigration mwa is imperave."
The majority report of the Committee
i iiesolutions, among other thing?, fairs
the adoption by Congress of a law
ithorizing free unlimited coinage of ail>r;
a tariff for revenue only; Gongreaa
enact laws to place the tariflf upon a
irely revenue baais; the suppression
trusts and combines, and an amendent
of the immigration law.
During a talk on the tariff, Mr. Smalley
aimed the convention had been packed
i the interests of the Democratic party,
id that the Congress waa really being
sld for the purpose of welding the Demirate
and the Farmers'Alliance, and
tor the majority report had been adopd,
he said the Congress had degenered
into a Democratic pow-wow. The
r waa filled with hisses and groaua,
ingled with applause. Mr. Stnalley
ithdrew from the Congms.
