In the AdamB Express Oar Bob
Engineer Ttefferaan SeetaMnsplcloua Look
ing Individual Assisted Into
Bt. Iionis, Nov. 10 The only thing new
in the express robbery Is the statement of
Engineer Heffernan, of the Wabash road,
that he saw a stranger get into Messenger
Fotheringham's train as it left the union
depot here on the night of the robbery, and
that the stranger was assisted into the car
by some one on the inside. It was on this
statetment made before the grand jury that
the indictment against Fotberlngham was
found. Heffcrnan's story is as follows: "I
was in the union depot in the evening of
October 25 oiling ray engine. My time to
start was b:25 p. m., but just as 1 was about
to get away I noticed that the Frisco train
was across the main track. Of course I
could not move until the Frisco got out of
my way. The express car was almost di
rectly opposite my cab window, end I
noticed that tbe door of the car was sta fl
ing open. The messenger and his helper
were inside busy with their duties. It was
nearly time for the Frisco train to start,
and Dwyer swung himself off tbe car and
went away. A minute or two later a man
came along with a valise in bis hand and
stopped directly under the electric light
and within a few feet of the e gine. He an
swered Fotheringham's description of tbe
robber as far as I remember, except that
ho was a couple of inches or so snorter.
He wore his hat well forward over his face,
and I could not make out his features very
clearly. He asked me which was the
Frisco train, and 1 pointed it out to him.
It was just moving away, and he ran along
side of it until he reached the express car,
the door of which was still standing open
(a very unusual thing, by tbe way), threw
his valise inside, reached up his hand
and was pulled up tbiough the door
into the car. He could not nave jumped
in without assistance, especially with
the train in motion, and I believe Foth
eringham helped him." Thomas Dwyer's
testimony corroborated the engineer's
story, 'ylm Cummings." who Fotberlng
ham says, committed the robbery, Is carry
ing on rather a voluminous correspondence
for one in his position. He fttst wrote 10
Frank James, the ex-bandit, then to the
editor of a newspaper, and now to Fother
ingham's mother, inclosing in the letter
$60, which he suggests may be of use in
clearing ber eon of the suspicion now rest
ing upon him. All of the letters are in the
bands of the detectives.

the springs of the rear coach. The
bombs were carefully removed and
there were many pale faces among the pas

distance over short curves with that
amount of dynamite and caps Uader the
springs of a coach is a mystery. Thirty
four persons n ere in the coach. Suspicion
po nts directly to no person as the perpe

thoroughly investigated by the railroad
authorities and an effort made to bring
tbe criminal to justice.

Two Hundred Feet of the Mississippi Bank
Gives Way, Destroying Several Build

About 6 o'clock this morning over two hun
dred feet of the river bank, including Levee
street, caved nto the river. Several build

which has taken place in the river front
this season. This last cave-in has ap

A Cruel Russian Sect
Russia is peculiarly rich in surprising
sects and associations, but the most as
tounding is one lately brought to light
bearing the ominous title of "The Red
Death." Its members affect to believe
that he who consciously permits another
to suffer prolonged pain commits a
mortal sin. In order to abbreviate the
sufferings of humanity it Is a matter of
conscience with them to kill the sick,
that tbey may be put out of their pain
quickly. The association takes' its name
from the fact that its executioners,
dressed in red for tbe occasion,
stranglo their victims with red
cord, placing them for tbe
purpose upon a red oatsialque, beneath
the dull reddish light of an oil lamp.'
This strange and horrible association
was brought to light by the emerge'tlo
opposition interposed by a man' in Tjr

THE PACKERS BAOK DOWN.
They Rescind Their i Beaolaeton to Befass

WsH Held Oat for the Vsh-Hour Ilay
i. ThSi Stock llatds Garrlssavd by over a
Thsasand Araaed Men. f.
CrflCAOo, NcY., 11. The cArst overtures
towara a sottlewent of the great strike at
the Stock Yards were made quietly yester
day by tbe packers rescinding the resolu
tion nover again to employ Knights of La
bor or union men until they resigned from
those organizations. The situation at the
yards remained unchanged throughout
tho day, .the, action of. the pack
ers not having been heard of until late at
night The employes of the largo houses
wore paid off, and this, added to the preva
lent despondency among the strikers over
the hopelessness of their case, was produc
tive of much more general intoxication than
has yet boon noticed, but notwithstanding
disturbances were less frequent than on
either Monday or Tuesday.
Representatives of all the packing firms
met in the directors' room of the Board of
Trade upon an urgent Call yesterday. The
meeting was private, but, like most pri
vate meetings of these days, it was only
semi-private. This much became ovldont.
The chief Knight of Labor representative In
the city had met some one of the packers,
Authorized to speak for all the rest, and
, there had taken place between them a gen
eral discussion of the situation. That dis
cussion had reached a conclusion on two
(points. Ono was that the packers at their
.last meeting had struck a blow at the whole
organization of Knights. The other was
.that, in turn, the boycott on Chicago meats
hod bcon ordered or was about to be. From
ithese two points tho two representatives
argued out the question. Now there bos
been two results. One is the action taken
by the Packers' Association and the other
is the action taken by the Knights.
At the mooting of tho packers yesterday
a scries of resolutions was adopted sotting
forth that inasmuch as the packers had be
come convinced that tho resolutions adopt
ed at a recent meeting declaring that no
man would be employed by them unless ho
severed his connection with labor organiza
tions were unjust to numerous persons
who are members of such organizations,
those resolutions should bo rescinded, and
the following resolutions be adopted as be
ing more in accord with the mutual in
.tcrest of the employers and employed, to
wit: ' "Whereas, The packers are confronted with
the fact that their employes are repeatedly
leaving their employment without notloe to
,thcm and to the great detriment of their busi
ness, which Is of such a nature as to require
constant prosecution and careful attention,
" Betolved, That while we will not exclude
from employment the members of such organ
Izatlons, wo will exercise the right to employ
and discharge whom we please and conduct our
business on the ten-hour plan and according to
our best Interests."
The action taken or yet to be taken by
tho bead and front of the strikers, it was
hinted last night, would bo that inasmuch
as th packers had recognized tho Knights
of Labor and rescinded their former reso
lution against that order, and inasmuch as
the striko had been precipitated by the
local authorities against the wishes of Mr.
Barry, the chief representative of
Mr. Powderly, now in tho city, tho
striko has been or will be declared off, and
all the old hands ordered back to work. The
packers, it has been said, stick to tho ton
hour principle, this having been conceded
'to them on the ground that they will with
draw their boycott on the Knights of La
bor, the Knights in turn to withdraw their
'proposed boycott on the produot of tho
Chicago packing houses.
Another view of tho case, suggested by a
friend of the packers last evening, Is that
the packers became convinced that their
(resolution of the previous day was wrong
.in principle, and that many mombers of
various labor unions or other organizations
(might have paid in money for bonevo
.lent or insurance purposes which theli
'resignation would annuL For these rea
sons the resolutions wore rescinded
land the new ones substituted.
In accordance with the determination
reached by General Fitz Bimons Tuesday, a
special order was issued from brigade
headquarters at the Stock Yards that the
commanding offlcor of tho First Cavalry do
tall one troop of the command to join the
two regiments at the yards, the troop tc
ship their horse equipments and come full;
armed and equipped for service, carrying
carbines and revolvers with rounds of baU
cartridges and twenty rounds of rovolvoi
amunltion. In accordance with the order.
Colonel Jacobs detailed Troop D, consisting
of fifty men under Captain Ole Hough, be
longing to bis command, and dispatched
.them to the yards. With this latest
addition the brigade is now complete and
jfully equipped for any emergency that teas
'possibly arise. The Getting gun stands in
(the yard covered with heavy canvass, and
junder the immediate eye of a guard, ready
for use when the call comes, but that U
among the least of tbe expectations.

All of the packing houses were in opera

was visibly increased. New men, hired at
tho city offices of the various Arms, wore sent

scores and by hundreds.
New York. Nov, U. The .wnolcsnle
butchers of Washington market say they
do not bellovo that thero will bo any real
attempt mado by the Western packers tc
bring cattle East and ithon kill them, and in
that opinion they agrco with tbe represent
atives in this city of tho Wostqrn packora.
One wholesale butcher said he understood
that about 800 oxen had been killed
and dressed in Now Jersey this
week for a Western packer. The
report, however, could not bo verified.
Tho men who actually kill and1 dress
the cattle bere are all union men, and they
will not kill any cattle for the Western
packers so long as the striko lasts, and if
any wholesale dealers hero or any where
East attempts to assist the Western pack
ers by arranging for their cattle to- bo
killed hero a strike of oil the union butchers
would immediately be ordered. Tbe agents
of the Chicago packers say that a car-load
of cattle may be killed for Western packers
here and thero in some of the towns along
tbe route to supply the local trade.

THE MANURE PILE.
Timely Sasgestlons on Topic or Xore
Than Ordinary Interest.
How to save the manure of the dairy,
and how to apply it to the best advan
tage, is one of those problems of the
farm that no man can think and study
over too much. Some one has wisely
said tbat the manure pile is the farmer's
bank account If the farmer has the
proper appreciation of the nature of
manure on the farm, he will value early
winter for its admirable adaptability to
scouring this valuable article for the
The dairyman is usually so much bet
ter provided with manure than the ordi
nary farmer that he seldom appreciates
its real value, nnd so neglects to take
advantage of all opportunities he has
for increasing his supply. In the first
place not one dairy farm in a hundred
Is provided with any means for securing
the liquid manure from the cows. This
Is usually allowed to run to waste and
often to make a mud-hole in the stable.
Instead of being secured in some shape
that it may be of value to the farmer.
Some very fine dairy farms have cisterns
or cemented basement, or manure cel
lars, with more or less elaborate con
duits leading from under these cows to
these receptacles, and vory often tho
collection of such a mass of llu'd manure
sets up a stench tbat ruins the atmos
phere for breathing purposes all about
tbe stable. This is an expensive and
often ruinous method of saving the
liquid manure, and one that few practi
cal dairymen will bo willing to follow.
This is one of tbo instances in which
economy and the best practice go hand
in hand. Instead of laying out money
for costly apparatus for carrying the
liquid it will not only be far cheaper
but much better in every way to save
this liquid manure with some dry sub
stance used as bedding for tho cows,,
such as leaves, dry weeds, the patent
moss, or even dry earth, straw or other
material, stich as saw-dust, that will
come handiest .to tbe man who has the
cows to bed.
Dry earth is an excellent article for
bedding and saving tbe liquid manure,
though it is not so easily gathered and
taken care of or spread under the cows
as leaves. Dry earth Is, however, a
better disinfectant of bad odors, while
it holds all the water that falls on it
The great trouble with this bedding is
tbe mud tbat will stick to the cow's
hair, and tbe everlasting dust it makes
in the cowhouse.
If you can get saw-dust, by all means
do so. It is a long way tbe best bed
ding ever invented; being light to haul,
easily stored, easily spread under the
tows, an admirable absorbent, and can
be quickly shaken out it the morning.
Both leaves and saw-dust have an ad
mirable meohanlcal Influence on tbe
soil, While leaves help tho productive
character of the soil, not much can be
said in this way for saw-dust, and 'es
pecially the dust of pine and oak and
some other woods, they last so long be

ever, tbat tbe dairyman be not too
