Nov. 27, 1883 To tbs Editor of Th Sforristowa Gaxette : Kre this letter is in type y on .will probably . have more light , on the question who is to be the - Speaker ot tbe . House ot Jiepresentatives, and I will therefore keep near' the 6horo and avoid predictions. It is impossible to tell who is ahead at this writing Several new elements have made their appearance in the contest during the past week, ami there is yet time for the appearance of other elements, and the contest may be very much complicated in unexpected ways before the first Monday in December. " lhe Democrats are thoroughly imbued with a feeling of the im portanco of prudence and caution fhey desire to avoid the blunders which-tbe Republicans are so anx ious they shall commit. It must be confessed their way is beset by dangers, but, on the- othr hand they are strong in able and tried leaders. A parliamentary majority that can count such nien as Ran dall, llolman, IJurd, Barbour, Tuck er, Hewitt, Blackburn, Carlisle, Fol lett, Ccx, Spinger and many others, has little to fear lrom a minority whose leaders are Buch men as Ilis coek. llorr, and Keifer. - tinte a number of Democratic Senators have arrived in the city and have secured homes for the winter. I have talked with a num ber of them and have learned that there is a general and very earnest wish that the Ohi legislature shall return Ex-Senator Thurman to the Senate. The Democrats of that body feel tho loss of his wise leader ship, his immenso leral learning. and acquaintance with affairs. The minority in the Senate is not ' Iack- ng in ability but it has never ; be fore had a leader who possessed in such an eminent and acknowledged degree tho power to counsel, de cide, combine, and control as Allen G. Thurman. The Republicans no oiiger have such leaders as Blaine, Conkling, and Morton, and if Ex- Senator Thurman wero returned to his emntv chair their would bo as remarkable an intellectual Demo cratic preponderance in the Senate as there is in the House. Tbe Senate this winter will con tain thirty members who have serv ed also in the Housdof Representa tives, which is a largo proportion j when it is considered there are only seventy-eight Senators in all. The Blames have arrived and oc cupy a rented House on Lai&yette! Square. Mr. Blaine's new house it will be remembered, has been rent ed to Mr.' Leiter of Chicago. . The difference between what Mr. Blaine pays for the house he Jives in and the one which ho rents to the wealthy Chicagoan is equal to the salary of a Cabinet officer or a Jus tice ot the hupremo Court It is not difficult even this early n the season to see a dozen Presi dential possibilities in "Washington. One of the latest arrivals is Judcre lolman of Indiana,' who is here with his wifo and two "daughters. They occupy rooms in the Hamil ton House, a rather exclusive up- own hotel. There can be no doubt thaf'thinirs are being fixed" t put Arthur reg ularly on the track for' :tho Presi dency; Ho has but ono ' real com petitor at present Sherman, Grant, and "Wmdom are all off the' track. Logan and Edmunds are regarded as possibilities, but Blaine alone is formidable, and those who imagine that his mind dwells serenely in po- ltical-historical literature and -is effectually divorced from presiden tial aspirations know not the man. I here was an arrival in the city last night. Geo. E. Spencer, erst while a carpet-bag Senator from Alabama, came under an escort of two Deputy Marshalls . He had been arrested in Nevada, and he is wanted to testify in the case of an other ex-carpet-bag Senator, "VYm. 1'itt Kellogg, now under indictment for ' complicity in the Star .

The Body of One Murdered "Vo- man Taken to a House "Where p Two Others Are Killed.' Lacon'ia, X. II., November 25.- This jnornin'g the residents Were startled by' the 6tory that a terrible tragedy had occurred. At 4 o'clock S. S: Andrews,, ft neighbor of James Kuddy, aged forty years, employed in tne jaconu car works, was alarmed by a woman's screams. He aroused his' son and hurried to Ruddy's house, whence the screams firoeeeded. I here they found Jurs. Juddy, aged thirty-six years, lying onthecrround .beneath the front window, through which ' sho had leaped. She was bleeding profuse ly, and said 6tie bad been Cut all, to . - a a 1 pieces, fcne was properly carea for, assistance obtained, and the door of Ruddy's houso forced open, when flames burst forth and an alarm of fire was sounded. The flames were quickly extinguished, and the bodies of Ruddy and his only child, one and one half year old, were found lying on the kitchen floor both cut in a terrible manner and covered with the contents ofa feath er bed 'which had been saturated with kerosene and set on fire. The bodies were so ' disfigured by the flames as to be nearly past recogni tion. In the bedroom was ' found the trunk of the lifeless body of Mrs. ord, which was indentified by her husband. One of her limbs had been chopped eff, and the detached member and remaining leg were bound to the" woman's body with clothes-line. The bedclothes had been saturated with oil, - piled on the body, and an attempt made' tol set them on fire, ""which had fail ed. Mrs. Ruddy, being questioned, said the crime was committed with hatchet by Themas Samon, 'an Englishman, and- an acquaintance of the family, who was '.a cook by trade, and about thirty-six years of - r 1 I a a age. Jirs. Jtuaays statement De fore the coroner's jury was as fol- ows: "Vi e went to bed about 9 o'clock. At 11 Samon came into tho front room and looked out the window, saying he was nervous and could not sleep. I got up and made him a cup of tea and went back to bed. At 4 o'clock Samon came into tho front room again and acted queerly. Ho went back to tho kitchen. My husband got up, and ho also went into to tho kitch- n. I soon heard a fall, and going found m husband hanging t e . a a a out over a chair wun nis arms down. Samon started for me and struck me with a hatchet on the head. I grab bed his arm, but he then struck me and threw me to the floor. He went into the front room and killed the baby, who was crying. While he was thero I tried to unlock the kitchen door, but he returned and again struck me on the head, knock- nr me down. ... 1 lay perfectly quiet. le wont back into the front room to get the baby and then came back and poured feathers and straw over us, and went out. 1 got , up ..and tried to open the 'front, window,, but could not. I then broke a pane of glass and jumped through. He was very nervous in the kitchen : all niffht." ' - The hatchet with which tho crime was probably committed was found in the - river. It is stated shat Sampn took Mrs. Ford'B body to Ruddy's house Saturday morning L i 1- 1 'M. ? -J .-1 in a irunK, wnore it remained uiun the tragedy occurred. The coroner's inquest rendered a verdict that the persons came to their death ' at the hands-of Thomas Saniohj and! the atter was arrested this , afternoon near. Plymouth. ; He. did not resist arrest, and has been taken in charge by riymouth omcers. buspicionTjeingr against lord, the husband of the : raurderod wo-! maniihat he might t6 implicated in" the ,affair, he. was. arrested .this fore noon and remains in custody.- -'Sus- piciuos circumstances -tend to show his guilt.: "There was no evidence of Mrs. Ford's murder, and it is thought her death was " accidental at Samon's hands; that wishing to conceal the body he took it to Rud dy's whence, perhaps, he could carry it from the house during the night; that Ruddy refused to assist ,mm, when a stugglo ensued. The sup position is that Mrs.. Ford died either from strangulation or drug- as she frequently indulged in trong drink. Samon will be brought to Laconia: on Monday for trial. Great excitement prevails, and fears . W .ft . e a are entertained that a vigilance committee will be organized 'and he prisoner lynched uponlhis arriv al, at the depot. . " ....... tx , I Later reports lrom riymouth state that Samon denies all knowledge of the affair, and that his arrest was a perfect surprise. Samon has never been regarded as vicious, even when intoxicated. At a late hour to-night Mrs. '.i Ruddy's condition -was no worsey,.'".' . ; ; SERG KA.lYTJfAS02YFREE. dated the 26th ult, says : The par don of Sergeant' Mason, 4 tlib 'guard at the Washington, jail during Guiteau's ''confinement; there, who lifired an" inefficient shot at the assassin, and wlio' has )jgq 'ifof tlie past twenty months serving dn'eight years' sentence .for the, act, - in. . the penitentiary, reached tho prison at 1 o'clock today.'

DEATH IN A .FAIR WAT TO CHEAT jCS . . . TICE OF HERDUE; ' Frank James, the ' noted outlaw, is in very low health, and Charles P. Johnson, one of his attorneys, the other day said that rri all probabili ty before the courts settled the case the distinguished defendant would be called before a higher tribunal. What makes the' situation of Frank all the ! more gloomy is' that his finances are very low and that he is forced to change his once luxurious modoof living. In strong contrast are his present surroundings when compared with those ofa year ago. There is no strip of Brussels carpet n the floor of his cell now. The paintings and bric-a-brac have dis appeared from the walls, the ma hogany bedstead, the writing desk and most of the books have , disap peared. -When. the outlaw was brought back' from Gallatin three weeks ago to the Independence jail ho Was assigned to one of the small cells, six by six, but to share it with another prisoner. The furnishing consists ofa pine board for a table, two rough bunks and 4 . couple of stands. Frank James is now no better off in his cell life than any of tho dozen common prisoners who gather about bim in the corridors daily to hear him "spout Shake- we- a. e . e a . speare, his iavonte, and it might oe said almost his only recreation. ' The change in the man is as nota ble as : that in his surroundings. The halo of the demi-god of the sensation lover has been dissipated. There are no daily levees with curious admirers. ' The novelty and excitement has passed away. Jail life is bad enough, but to this is added a strain of mind few prisoners have sustained. "The 'clearness of the eyo and the brightness of the complexion have gone. He 'is a little more stooped than he was. The cheeks are shallow and thinner. The less of fifty pounds tells on a jure not burdened with too much flesh. He looks grave when he talks about his health, and says it is doubttul it another jsovember will find him a prisoner, no ' matter what the course of tho courts. ".' VISIONS OF JIMJAMS. THE ETPERIENCE OF A MAN- WHO DELIBERATELY QUITS BUSINESS . AND GETS DRUNK. 'The warnings some drinking men receive are very strange," said the oldest of pur party, writes Frank Wilkinson in tho New York Sun. "I know several men who are 6preers who have warnings, gener ally vissions more or less horrible, but invariably the same, when they approach the wall behind which the jimjams lurk. .Probably the most striking case is that ofa gentleman who inherited his diseased craving for alcohoL He will not . drink, it may be, for a year. Then he will put his business into such : shape that he can leave jt for , a few days, and. delibertely, get drunk. For two days he devotes his energies to getting drunk, and staying drunk. Ho is not of the least trouble to any one when drinking, ne shuts him self up in his room and drinks alone. In two days he will drink a gallon of the- best sour mash burbon whisky money can buy. He always begins drinking ,in . the : evening. The third evening he goes tobed in a beastly state, of intoxication. At about midnight his vision comes to him. He dreams that he went to bed and slept soundly until awak ened. by a hard, white, flickering light. He lies awake wondering what causes, the light, and . hears a loud knock on his bed room . door. 'Come. in!' , he cries. The door is thrown wide open; and a man who has been freshly flayed stalks in.' The flayed ,man smiles in a ghastly manner,:and nods in friendly recog-' nition. -The flesh is gone from his mouth.-' His teeth grin mockingly. He' stations - himself opposite the bed. and leans against the wall, his shoulders making a bloody mark where he leans. His lidless' eyes rolls, and his tongue, lolls. The. bed room door remains open. My friend looks out of the door into the street. There he sees a long column of flay ed men marching rapidly down the road. Stragglers drop out from the column and enter his room.' ( When ten men have entered ; his'. bedroom door closes. The flayed men, who are covered with fresh' blood, walk silently around the room looking at him-. , They " pointed their , bloody fingers at him. At a signal from the man who first. t entered, theyall marched out,' ".Presently , they reT turn, each carrying a , flayed and bloody corpse. .T.he blood has dried on the live men jvvhile they were absent,' and it flakes frpm them as they re-enter. the , room with their ghastly burdens. ' The corpses are placed on the floor in a row, side by side. At a signal from the leader of the skinless horrors they straddle the dead bodies) andj bending over, grasp ...them around .the waists. Then,' straightening' up, with ; the legs of the dead men between their own, they move around the room in a weird dance, now. advancing, now retreating, then . circling, around L the 'bed, and always leering and Lgnnning at my friend. . After des perate efforts i he awakens,, and,, the vision disappears.5, It is his warning to quit .drinking, and ; hq heeds jit,; too. i, '!

" For ' wonderful "stories read '"the Paris Figaro."- Here is one of them: Dr. de la Pomeraise was executed in June, 1864, for a murder ' of " the Palmer type. On the night before execution ho " was visited by Sur geon ' Velpeau, who, ! after a few preliminary ' remarks, ' informed him1 that he came in the '. inter ests of science, and; that he . hoped for Dr.' de la Pomerais' co-operation; ""You-know,"1 he said,' that one of the most ; interesting;i ques tions of physiology is as to wheth er any ray of memory, ! - reflection, or real sensibility survives ih the brain of a man after the fall of the head." At this point the comdemn ed man looked somewhat startled; but professional instincts at once re sumed thoir sway,' and the two phy sicians 'calmly discussed and arrang ed the details of an experiment for the next morning. "When the knife falls," said Velpeau,"! shall be standi ing at your side and your ;; head will at once , pass from the execu tioner's hands into mine. ' I ' will then cry distinctly: into your ear: 'Count de la Pomeraise, can you at this moment thrice lower the lid ' of right eyewhile : the' left remains open?"' 1 The .next day, when the great surgeon reached the condemn ed cell, he found, the doomed man practicing the sign agreed upon. A few minutes later the guillotine had done its work, the head was in Velpeau s hands, and the question put. Familiar as he was with tho most shocking and ghastly scenes, he was almost frozen with terror when he saw the right lid fall, while the other eye looked fixedly at him. "Again," he cried irantically. , The lids moved, but they did not part. It was all over i : ,- : : r, Sa ved by oil. "Yes sir, we let . as many as six hundred gallons of oil into the sea, and that saved tne wnoie oi us." These w6rds were spoken by Capt. Parker, of the Britishbrig Louisa Coipel, of .Yarmouth, N. S., who arrived tho other evening at Newport with his . vessel, after ex periencing most tempestuous weath er. The vessel left Yarmouth on tho 7th inst. with a general cargo for New. York. Owing to severe gales, the vessel made for Nan tucket shoals .arriving there about midnight - on the -11th. Two big anchors were dropped, but the ves sel dragged, and the Captain, to save his vessel, ; was compelled to slip these and put out to sea. I he hurricane still continuing, the ves sel lay to on tbe port tack. The sea was running: mountains nigh, the waves washing over the vessel from stem to stem, and with such force that the deck cargo got bably shitt ed. The captain and his two .offi cers dicided to tap some barrels of fish oil which, were on. deck. The casks were relashed i and a large number of holes bored into them, so that a treafn of oil flowed into the sea. , The effect was almost instan taneous. The vessel was drifting about six points to the leeward, leaving the oil to . the wind-ward. Capt. Parker says that in about three-quarters of an hour the waves had almost ceased : breaking over his vessel, and that but for the fact that he had oil on boardr the .vessel and all hands must havo been lost. - . '- COMPLIMENTARY. ; Mrs. Jimson went out West, and after several years' residence, return ed. on a, visit to her old home, i "How do you like the West, Mrs. Jimson?" asked Mrs. Green," who was quite a fashionable lady. ,. . , i "Oh, it's lovely."
