THURSDAY. MAY 29. 1879.
The decision in the case of Ilazen and
Stanley rests with General Sherman. It is
for him to gar whether the finding of the
court-martial shall be approved or not, and
whether the court shall Le reconvened.
The sentence of the court is understood to
be simply a general censure of Stanley, and
it is thought the General will end the mat
ter b J assent to this decision.
A. mass meeting of Greenbacfcers, in
jTew York city, last Toured iy evening,
adopted resolutions congratulating the
trainers of the new constitution for Cali
fornia upon their victory, and resolving to
do for Xew York what they had done
for the Pacific State give it a constitution
as radical as the one eo recently adopted.
Several addresses were made by members
of trades unions.
TLe Chicago Tribune informs us that
there is no immediate prospect of bringing
to an end the spirited scrimmage now going
on between the railroads leading from Chi
cago to the Atlantic coast. Freight tariffs
have been whittled down to 121 cents on
grain to New York, and it is alleged that
ghipments for as low as 10 cents have been
made. Passenger rates have suffered in
sympathy, and human beings can travel
relatively almost as cheap as hogs and
cattle. With Vanderbilt and Tom Scott
both in Europe, there is little likelihood
that a durable truce can be patched up at
The Leavenworth papers have found, by
an examination of the U. S. Collector's
books, that during the year 1878. the
Atchison cigar manufacturers paid for
revenue on cigars manufactured, $2,317 SO.
The largest firm paid $1,58290; the second,

The Champion neglects to state that the
cigar factories of Leavenworth paid during
the same time more than EIGHT TI MES
as much as those of Atchison. It sup
presses one half the statement, and declines
to tell the whole truth. It boasted a few
days ago that Atchison manufactured more
cigars than Iavenwortb, and it declared
that Atchison was always willing to show
up. Rut when the facts are presented
Atchison declines to show up. She don't
want anything to do with facts. RIowing
is her fort, and she can always be "counted
in" on that.
A correspondent writes that Mrs. Free
man, the mother of little Edith, who was
killed by her father under a religious delu
sion, "is slow ly dying and can live but a short
time." "Her bloodies lips, and her inabil
ity to eat or sleep," give full evidence of th
anguish that is preying upon her. She
weeps and moans day and night. She is
confined in an upper cell, and has not,
during the two weeks of her confine
ment, eaten the ordinary quantity
of food required for a single
meal. She tries to eat, believing it a sin
to make an effort to end her life, but when
the fatal Sunday came arcund and the
child that she loved did not rise as was
promised, she gave way entirely. The
pleasant expression which marked her fea
tures during thetrial'forrook her when thit
day passed, and gave place to sorrow
which seems to be burning deeper and
deeper into her very soul. History has
recorded no sadder picture of fanaticism
than this.
3IOXY. The Great Roman Catholic Cathedral, in
Sew York, which ha? been so many years
in course of Construction, and which is sup
posed to surpass in size and magnificence
any other structure of the kind in the
United States, is to be dedicated with im
posing ceremonies today. Cardinal JIc
Closkey will lead in the services, assisted
by archbishops and bishops from Xtw
York and other States, and there will be a
procession of two hundred priests, acolytes
and chanters pssring into the cathedral and
down the center aisle, accompanild by ap
propriate mutic. Bishop Ryan of St. Louis
will preach the dedicatory sermon. The
cathedral is 334 feet in length, the trans
cept 140 feet, the width of the nave 9G feet,
including the aisles, or 4S feet from pillar
to pillar, giving 24 feet to each aisle ; the
height of the nave 103 feet and of the aisles
54 feet. The clerestory is 138 feet in height.
Four altars have been erected, the cost o
which alone is $100,000, and there are
spaces for ten more. The stiucture has 70
ENTT. Owing to the extra demand for yester
day morning's paper containing a compari
son of the manufacturing interests of Leav
enworth and Atchison in the line of cigars,
we publish the article again this morning.
We also give elsewhere in this issue the
official figures, taken from the Colltctoi's
books, of the business of the two towns in
the manufacture of beer. Reer and cigars
are two of the articles which the Atchison
"""""" manuii
gnrion declared a few days ago were
manufifcisred in greater quantities in
Atchison than in Leavenworth.
The United States Collector's books show
exactly how much is done in these lines in
each town, and they show that the business
of the two towns, in these lines, compares
as follows:
iscrenirorfn manvcicfnrfs MORE THAN
THREE TIMES cs much beer as Atchitoi
Iiewxnuvrthtnmufactnres EIGHT TIMES
In the matter of beer, Atchison "shor
up" very well, Baking nearly one-third t
much an Leavetworth ; but in the matur
of cigars she "slows up" so insignificantly
that we were Btrry to be obliged to publish
iSe figures.
Why, the Collector's books show
that one factory at the little torn
of Watsrville, away out in the
interior o' the State, manufactures mere

Such an exhibition as that, hackel ly
the official figures, must be very humil a
tine to Atchison, after so much "nauteati g
aad disgusting blowing."
If the Atchison Champion wants to know
how the business of that town compans
witk the business of Leavenworth, all it has
to do ia to consult the facts.
When the figures have to be taken from
the books of parties themselves, Atchison's
habit of blowing and exaggerat-

referring to this the Ouanpion, with its
usual custom of exaggerating everything
pertaining to Atchison, stated that Atchi
son manufactures more cigars than Leaven
worth. Kow, it so happens that the num
ber of cigars manufactured in any town is
not "one of those things no fellah can find
out;" on the contrary, it is one of the very
easiest things to find out. Cigar makers
have to cover all their goods with stamps,
and they have to buy their stamps from the
United States Revenue Collector. A ref
erence to the books of Collector Carpenter
of this District, gives the'following result :
There are twenty-one cigar factories in
Leavenworth, which during the year end
ing January 1st, 1379, used stamps respect;

I'The numbers given above do not retires
ent the official numbers by which tile several
factories are designated.
Those are figures that do not lie. They
are taken from the official records in the
Collector's office, and they show that the
business of Leavenworth, in the line re
ferred to, is d'jld timet a mnch as that of
Atchison, while we have good evidence of
the fact that just about the same difference
exists in all other lines of business. We
have no desire to do anything to injure
Atchison. We admit that it is a "right!
smart town, but when it magnibes its own
importance to such 9f esjent that it begins
to believe itself a bigger town than old

Atchison comes nearer equaling Leaven
worth in the manufacture of beer than in
any other article she manufactures. There
are three breweries in each place, and the

These figures are not guessed at. They
are taken from the Collector'n books. They
show the business of the two places in this
line exactly as it is, and the usual lying
and exaggerating of the Champion cannot
change them.
They show that the business of Leaven
worth,inthisline,isMORETHAX THREE
XES3 OF ATCHISON! and this is the
line in which Atchison comes nearer to
Leavenworth than in any other.
The official figures in regard to the man
ufacture of cigars show that the business cf
XrarenirortA amounts to EIGHT TIMES
AS MUCH cs th: business rf Atchison
How does the Champion like the business
of "showing up?"
How does it like the way the business of
Atchison compares with the business of
So far as "nauseating and disgusttng
blowing" is concerned, Atchison has no ri
val ; in that line of business it can dif count
any town orcity on the continent. Rut when
it comes to solid business she makes a very
different showing. There is no way to as
certain the exact amount of business done
in some lines, and therein the Champion
makes blowing take the place of facts.
But brewers and cigar manufacturers have
to use stamps; the stamps have to be pro
cured from the I". S. Collector, and his
boot", therefore, chow the exact amount of
business done. In every business of that
kind where the truth can be arrived at, the
result is found to be the same, and the bus
iness of Leavenworth is found to be from
four limes to eight limes as much as the busi
ness of Atchison.
For a town that has done as much "naus
ceating and disgusting blowing" as Atchi
son, and has made such magnificent pre
tensions, that is a very thin showing up.
The hard, stubborn facts in the case show
that, while the population of Leavenworth
is onlythree times as great as the popula
tion ot Atchison, the business of Leaven
worth ii about eight times as great as the
business of Atchison.
The Cincinnati Gazette of the 24th pub
lishes a lift of the creditors of Archbishop
Furcell, with the amount due each, and also
a schedule of the Bishop's assets. This list
fills nine columns of the paper, in small
type. The assets, at their nominal value,
amount to one million one hundred and
eighty-one thousand dollars, while the lia
bilities foot up three million six hundred
and ninety -seven thousand dollars. Of the
assets, claims to the amount of two hun
dred and forty thousand dollars are sched
uled as "doubtful," and one hundred and
sixty thousand as "worthless." According
to this exhibit the creditors will probably
receive about twenty per cent. In present
ing the list the Gaxttc says :
Mr J. D. Mannli, assignee of John P. Par
cell and Edward Porcelt, LU brother, yester
day filed tits schedule of assets and liabili
ties In the Probate Court. It was a lengthy
document, and owing to the peculiar nature
of the business methods of Father Edward
Parcell, the work of the assignee and of the
appraisers has been unusually tedious. The
utmost diligence has been used, and yet It
was not until late yesterday afternoon that
the papers were ready to file. Only yester
day the assignee heard of one debtor who
denied his debt until he came to his death
bed, and then he acknowledged it. In other
cases there has been gnat trouble In ascer
taining the exact state of the accounts. A
wcrld of trouble arose in appraising the cem
etery lots.nnd in otberao that It is not at all
strange that these papers have been de'ayed
so long.
The Champion never said that the business
cf Atchison was "as large as the business
ol Leavenworth." That would be an absurd
comparison. Atchison Champion.
That looks a good deal like backing
down, but it will probably not be two weeks
before the Champion forgets that such a
comparison would be absurd. As soon as
some country merchant sends in an order
for a box of cheese or a keg of nails the
C&aaiptas will give us another column of
its "disgusting and nauseating blowing."
We don't think the Chrmpion means
to lie about the trad of its townt
but it has been blowing in this
one key so long it actually believes
that Atchison does more business than any
othertownin the west. A few facts, how
ever, in the shape of such figures as we
have been giving for the past two or three
days, have a good effect in letting the truth
in upon our blowing neighbor, and hence

The death ot William Lloyd Garrison
announced in our telegraphic columns Sun
day morning, is an event that will b; re
garded with sorrow by the friends of liberty
in all parts of the civilized world, for
among all the names made conspicous for
life-long devotion to the cause of human
rights, none stand higher or brighter on
the pillars of fame than that of William
LloydJ Garrison. The editor of The
Times has special reasons fcr
regretting his death, for, while to the world
he was the bold and fear'eis champion of
freedom, to us, aad especially to the oldtr
members of our family, he was in addition,
a life-long acquaintance and pergonal fnend,
and at the old family homestead in Kew
York there was no more frequent or wel
come visitor than William Lloyd Garrison.
The following interesting and compre
hensive sketch of his life we copy from the
New York Commercial Adzertihcr:
William Lloyd Garrison was born in
Newburyport, Mass., December 10, 1S01,
and was, therefore, in his seventy-fifth
year. His father was master of a vessel in
the West India trade, but a man of some lit
erary ability and taste, but inclined to intem
perance, and while his children were young
he deserted his family and never returned.
The wife and mother was compelled, on ac
count of her extreme poverty, to become a
professional nurse, and William was hired
out in 1 14 with a Quaker in Lynn, to
learn the trade of shoemaker. The boy
was small for his age and weak, and his
knees trembled under the weight of the lap
stone. Perceiving that he was not fitted
for the trade, his mother removed him, and
placed him with a Deacon Bartlett, a pro
fessional woodsawyer, and the boy em
ployed himself when out of school by as
sisting his friend and patron in his labors.
After this he went to Baltimore for a jear,
as an errand boy, but not being pleased with
the occupation he returced to Massachusetts
and became indentured to the editor of the
Newburyport Herald. The boy, now only
sixteen years of age, delighted with his oc
cupation, began to write Apolitical articles
for the Herali, preserving his incognito so
successfully that he was favcred by a com
munication from his master it questing him
to continue. Gratified by his success, the
youth began to write for other journals,
and a series of political papers, signed
"Aristides," attracted considerable atten
tion. When only twenty-one he started a
paper, called the Fret P,ess, in his native
town, bat it proved a failure. He then
worked as a journeymen for a year in Bos
ton. In 182. he was the editor of the JTa
tional Fhilaxlhropitl, the first journal deroUd
to the cause of total abstinence, and in the
following year he was connected with the

The excitement Le created not only in the
city, but throughout the State, was so great
that an anti-slavery memorial wa sent to
Congress, much larger than any similar
paper previously tnbmitted to that body.
Through the reputation which Garrison
there established Mr. Rerjamiu Lundy,
who was publishing the Genius cf Unhersil
Emancipation, engaged him as a coadjutor.
On July 4, 18211, Garrison delivered in
Park Street Church, Boston, a bold and
fearless address directed against sla
very, and in the fall he bean his labors
uoder Mr. Lundy. The two men however,
although not agreeing on the immediate
emancipation of slaves, Garrison's dectrine,
m inaged to get along harmoniously, and
each appended his initials to bis own arti
cles. In 1SS0 he was convicted of libel for
denouncing as a "domestic piracy" the ac
tion of the i hip Frarcis for carrying slaves
from Baltimore to New Orleans, and sen
tenced to pay a fioe of 533 and costs. He
was unable to pay the cos's and was thrust
in tail, TLe owner of the ship also obtain

Garrison remained in ja 1 ne employtd
his time in writing le:!er- to the newspap
ers, and these were read with interest. At
last he was released by the payment ot the
fice by Arthur Tappan, who had antici
pated the purpose of Henry Clay by a few
days. Occe released 1 c determined to start
an anti slavery journal, and to that end pre
pared a series of lectures the better to
locate the city best suited to his intentions.
He delivered thee addresses at Philadel
phia, New York, Hartford, New Haven and
Boston, Baltimore would not give him an
ear, and he experienced the greatest diffi
culty to obtain a hall in Boston, and it was
only after he advertised that he Bicnredone
offered by a party of infidels. It was in this
place that he was heard, and he took special
pains to assure his auditors that he had the
fullest faith in Christianity, for that
alone was the power which could
shatter the shackles of slavery. By
his experiences as a lecturer he
concluded that Boston was the bet-t place to
start his journal, and that a revolution in
sentiment in tie orth must take plate be
fore emancipation in the bjuth. Ua the
1st of January, 1S3I, appeared the.i'6erater.
Its motto was : ''My country is the world :
my countrymen are all mankind. Jlebad
no office, no pre, no type, and the paper
was printed through the intervention ot a
foreman of a Christian paper. Garrison
worked at the case by day, and wrote his
articles at night. The firet day was to de
cide whether the journal should live ordie.
The receipt of toO from a wealthy colored
man of Philadelphia, with the names of
twenty five subscribers, decidtd the ques
tion, and the paper lived. Within three
weeks it had an office of its own, but for
two year3 its existence was extremely pre
carious It attracted general attention
both North and South. The Mayor of
Boston was urged to suppress it, and its
editor was repeatedly threatened with as
sassination. The Legislature of Georgia
paed an act in December, 1S31, offering
a reward of So 000 to any jierson who
should ariet, bring to trial and
prostcnte its editor or publisher.
A year after the Liberator started Garrison
secured the assistance of the New F.ogland
Anti slavery feociety, the parent stem ot
the dczens of similar societies which sprung
up all over the ctuntry. In 1S32 he went
to Knglar-d aa an agent of the society, and
was warmly nceived by Wilberforce,
Brougham and their associates. After his
return the American Anti Slavery Society
was started in Philadelphia, and the
"Declaration of Sentiments," which set
forth the association's aim, principles
and method, was prepared by Garri.Dn
This was at a time when the holding of
anti-slavery meetings wa attended with
all sorts cf dangers, with riots imperiling
life and property. George Thompson, an
eloquent iCnglish advocate, who bad been
induced by Mr. Garrison to visit this
country, was compelled to return before
exercising hi powers. A meeting of the
Female Anti-Slavery Society in Boston
has riotou-Iy broken up by "gentlemen of
property and standing." Mr. Garrison
had gone to the meeting for the purpose of
making an address, and noting the turbu
lent feeling, attemp'cd to conceal himself
in a carpenter's shop in the rear of the
hall. The infuriated mob chased him,
and violently feizel him. He was drop
ped from a window by a rore, stripped of
his clothing and rtitble'tly dragged through
the streets to the City Hall, snd committed
to jail by the Mayor on the nominal
charge of disturbing the i2ce. The next
day he was released, and under the protec
tion of the police he was escorted to a place
of safety in the country. In 1S33, he led
the way in the organization of the New
England Non-Resistance Society. In 1S40,
at tbe "World's Anti-Slavery Convention,"
he refused to take bis seat because the fe
male delegates were refused admission. He
was chosen president of the society in 1813,
and held the office continuously till 1SG5,
when he resigned, deeming the time had
come for the dissolution of the society. In
lS45he again visited G-eat Britain for
anti-slavery purposes He urged his opin
ion that slavery could be crushed by moral
force, till the breaking out of the rebellion
in 1&G1, when he clearly saw that the sys
tern must be overthrown by the force of
arms. And to that end he beet the whole
weight of his energy and power. In
April 1SS5, he was among those who were
invited by the Secretary of War to see the
flag of an emancipated Union raised upon
the battlements of Fort Sumpter. During
all his years of public activity Garrison
found time to devote to literature. In 1832
h published a work entitled "Thoughts on
African Colonization ;" in 1S43 a email vol
ume of his "Sonnets" and other '"Poems,"
and in 1S52 a volume of "Selections"' from
bis writings. Shortly after the close cf the
war Garrison was presented with the sum
of 330,000, contributions having come from
some of the moat prominent men in the
land. In ISC" he visited Great Britain for
the third ad 1 st time, and was highly
receired by men of all ranks and stations.
American Journalism.
?t, Iouls Republican, 25.
It ha noticeable and very suggestive
fact that those who know the least about
the management and construction of news
papers are most disposed to criticize them.
When we consider the extent and variety
of the real information and the
labor required to rroduce a first class daily
journal, there Is no institution in the woild
which gives as much good with as little of
the bad or indifferent. Newspapers "go
wrong" occasionally, but bo do the greatest
statesmen, the greatest scholars, the great
est preachers. But their purpose is to go
right, and tliey hit more often than
they miss. Tbe printing, pasting and
folding press is not so ingenious a
piece of mechanism as the business, edito
rial, reportorial and typographical staff
whose work it circulates. The adaptability
of the human intellect is nowhere more
clearly illustrated than in the preparation
of a great newspaper, and the faults and
follies cf moc'ern journalism are few and
small, indeed, in proportion to its merits.
Nor has journalism touched its climax. In
tbe future, as in the past, it will keep pace
with the popular demand, and, judging the
future by the past, the Rra-Miean of fiitv
years hence will be as far in advance of the
i:mibiuxm of to-day as that of to dav is in
advance of that of fiftr years ago.
The Cattle Disease.
l"ew York Tribune, trt-l
The British Orders in Council,
went into effect March 3. have put
temporarily to the new and rapidly growing
uuuucss vi ci porting live came irom Amer
ica to England. The United States, with
her more than 40,000,000 hesd of cattle,
can spare from her ample resources as many
as 1,000,000 head yearly for export. The
business bade fair last Fall to attain those
proportions at an early day. It has now
been checked by the obstructions thrown in
the way of our exporters by the British
Government. This action on the part of
England seems peculiarly ungrateful, con
sidering that the contagious pleuro-pncu-mania

A Itieh Case of t lie Aforesaid Xou the
Subject of Comment in Kentucky.
I Louisville Courier-Journal
Within the past few days there has devel
oped in Louisville a very dark scandal.
The parties interested are Mr. m. II.
T&mlinson, of Carson, Bowman & Co., Mr.
E. Stanley Bowman, of tbe same firm, and
Mrs Jessie Buckner Tomlinson, the young
and beautiful wife of William II. Tomlin
son. All the above parties have occupied
the highest potitions in the best scciety of
Kentucky, and belong to the finest families
in the Onited Malta. .Mr. lomlmson is
the sen of D. W. M. Tomlinson, for many
years one of the most prominent citizens of
Harrodsburg, Ky. Mr. Stanley Bon man is
the son of the late United Stales Collector
Bowman, of Lexington, Ky., and a nephew
of Regent J. B. Bowman, of the Kentucky
University, upon whose family escutcheon
there has never before been the slightest
Btain. Mrs. Jessie Buckner Bowman is the
daughter of the late Dr. Buckner, a respect
ed and time-honored citizen of Greenville,
When Miss Jessie Buckner was quite
voung her parents died, and she came to
Harrodsburg, Ky., where hereducation was
completed about three years ago. She was
at the time living with a relative, and when
she entered into society it was under the
auspices of one of the most aristocratic
families of high-bred Kentucky. She was.
then but IS years of age, but so perfectly
beautiful and highly accomplished that
soon the name of Jessie Buckner was pro
verbial as one of the loveliest cf Kentucky's
many lovely belles. Mr. William H. Tom
linson was at that time living at Harrods
burg. He was scarcely 20 years of ase, yet
his reputation was that which ever charac
terizes the refined and elegantly-bred gen
tleman. He was noble and honorable, and
calculated to please any woman, even were
she tbe petted belle of bluegrass Kentucky.

About a year after his marriage Mr.
Tomlinson removed to this city and enter
ed into business as the "Co." of the whole
sale grocery firm of Carson, Bowman & Co.
Dr. Tomlinson also come to the city sim
ply on his son's account. Mr. Stanley Bow
man, of the firm above named, is the own
nephew of Dr. Tomlinson, and in his fami
ly has ever been treated as a beloved son.
He is about seven years older than his
cousin AVilliam, but they grew up to
gether in cousinly affection, and between
them there ever existed the bet feeling.
Mr. Bowman was in indigent circumstances,
and at his cousin's wish Dr. Tomlinson
started him In business upon his own capi
tal on an equal footing with his. son. How
base and ungrateful his crime has been the
following will show:
About four week3 -go there seemed sud
denly to have sprung up between Stanley
Bowman and Mrs. Buckner Thomlinson an
intimacy that bordered on impropriety.
The ladj's husband, however, was net
aware cf the fact. He placed in his wife
the most unbounded confidence, and lovtd
her deeply and tenderly. It will have
been four weeks next Tuesday since Stanley
iiowman, in .Mr. lomlinsons absence,
drove to the door of the family residence
and requested Mrs Tomlinson to go bucgy
riding with him. What occurred that day
will hereafter be riven in her own sad
story. She returned home at a late hour
that night, and found her husband and
family in the deepest anxiety. Sha gave
some unsatisfactory statement, and retired
to rest. It was detected at the time that
she had been drinking, for the fumes of
liquor were still strong upon her breath.
Her husband wa3 annoyed greatly at her
conduct, and. a-i a matter of course, his
worst Buspiciors were aroused.
This fact served to strengthen the young
husband's suspicions, and, though his whole
Boul was racked with grief, he deemed it
best for the sake of bis Gll'pring and fami
ly honor to set a w.itch upon his wife's
actions. The result was that she was de
tected meeting Stanley Bowman several
times in improper localities. Dr. Tomli
son stcured the services ot a relative of the
family, and, after di-guisipg him, got him
to follow the lady upon her next meeting
with Bowman. The meeting occurred
about two weeks ago. Mrs. Tomlison left
the house one afternoon closely shadowed
by the relative in disguise. She walked
some distance in the eastern portion of the
city, and, sure enough, was met by Bow
man. The two walked together arm-inarm
until a well-known assignation house
was reached. She entered the house in
Bowman's company. It is needless to say
for what purpos, or was there transpired.
and there was nothing left for him to do bet
to acquaint the husband and father with
the facts. Late in the afternoon Dr. Tom
linson and the relatives met Bowman, told
him that they had discovered all, and taxed
him with his guilt. He at once confessed,
expressing the most poignant grief at his
infamous conduct. The miserable woman
the once lovely belle and happy wife
also met her husband, and upon being
charged with her crime, burst into tears,
and upon bended knees besought his par
don for her terrible crime. It is impossible
to describe the poor man's grief. His life
and happiness were blighted, and however
terrible the idea must have beeD, he de
termined to pave his honor. He therefore
sent his wife back to her mother, iu Mis.is
sippi, retaining himself their child. To
describe the parting of the miserable hus
band and hia ruined wife is impossible.
But the husband bore up under his mis
fortune like a man. The lady is now with
her mother in Mississippi. Proceedings for
divorce will be instituted as soon as posai
ble. Stanley Bowmanis himself a married
man, having a wife living in this city, and
also one child. Shortly after he was de
tected in his intimacy with Mrs. Tomlinson.
he went to Washington City, and returned
only yesterday. Mr. Tomlinson was only
restrained by his father's entreaties from
killing Bowman, and upon the day the
guilt was discovered was in waiting fcr him
at an assignation house with the intention
of taking his life. All business relations
now existing between them will shortly
ajide frcm his relationship Im.-ines?, and by
family tie with Tomlinson, because it was
premeditated, if, tbe poor womtn's story is
true, and there is little doubt that in tbe
confession to her hmband she gave the
facts. She said to her husband that, in the
drive ever to Indiana, he had induced her
to drink some champagne or wine that
effervesced, which he had concealed in the
buggy or phsetcn. She waa unused.to wine
and its effects were all the more harmful on
that occasion. The dfstination was Cory
don. She spoke of "feeling the wine," and
Bowman, whOj she says, had bantered her
into drinking it, begged her to take a toddy,
which would neutralize the elite's of tl e
champagne. She drank the whisky, and, of
courje, was completely in Bjwman's power.
was only the matter of a few moments.
They returned from Corydoa between S and
9 o'clock at night
Mr. Tomlinscn had foibddenhis wife
going in the morning, ai 1 therefore sus-j
petted something wrong r- her conduct.
He resolved to be sure in n hit he might do
in the future to act upon facts, and there
