■lealli of Samuel Null—lnquest. Ae.
At the continuation of the hearing before
Justice <■. A\. Crapster last Friday afternoon,
j concerning the light between Samuel Null and
John Snyder, Snyder waived examination,
and was sent to jail to await the action of the
grand jury.
Mr. Null died about 11 o’clock last Friday
night, and Justice Crapster, acting as coro
ner, held an inquest Saturday morning. John
and 1-rank Zabn both testified at the inquest.
John s testimony was the same ns that given
at the examination on the Thursday previous,
which was given in last week’s Advocate,
and lurthor that be and bis brother Frank
were at the Eastern Hotel after Null bad been
carried in after the fight, and saw Snyder
there; that be heard inquiries as to Null’s in
juries, and (bat he did not like to tell, as
Snyder was present and could have answered.
Frank Zabn corroborated John, and in an
; swer to questions, said he bail seen Snyder
several days after the difficulty, and advised
him (Snyder) to give himself up; that, while
be bad told no one positively that Snyder was
the one who had hurt Null, he remarked to Mr.
John Bernstine and one or two others, that
he had heard that John Snyder had hit Null.
Dr. F. lx link. the physician who attended
gave an account of the condition in
which he had found him, Ac., about as re
ported last week. He said that, whilst he
could theorize as to the nature of the injuries,
but could state nothing positive without fur
ther examination. The acting coroner then
requested him to make a post-mortem, which
he did, assisted by Drs. Smith, Billingslea,
Mathias, Fringerand Bott. The examination
! showed a large bruise on the left side of the
head in the region of the temple, a fracture of
tin- cheekbone, also a depressed fracture of
the skull, between the eye ami the ear. The
latter fracture was about two inches long, one
inch wide, and the bones were driven directly
into the brain. There were no other injuries
about the body. After bearing the evidence,
the jury concluded that “Samuel Null came
to his death from a fracture of the skull,
caused by a blow or blows received from John
Snyder.”
TuruiiiK tin- Water.
On Tuesday morning last, July 31, water
was turned in the pipes, and the event was
one of considerable interest. At 11 o’clock
precisely, Mrs. Taylor, wife of Col. W. W.
Taylor, who is superintending the construc
tion of the water works, started the engine at
the pump, and little Helen Irwin, aged seven
years, daughter of Capt. P. 11. Irwin, turned
on the water. The water came rushing
through the pipes, and before 12 o’clock hose
was attached to the street washer in front of
the Advocate Bi ii.dixo and the street well
sprinkled. The first tap of the main was for
the Advocate Bcu.dixo, and the first use
made of the water was to sprinkle the street
in front. There was no effort made, either to
have the first tap or to he the first to use the
water, but it just so happened. Others had
street washers ready, and some even had pipes
running into their dwellings. During the test
at the Advocate Bi ii.dixi; Mr. James M.
Shell man handled the nozzle, and occasion
ally turned it toward the large crowd looking
on, causing a scattering. The little hoys en
joyed the sprinkling, and stood before the
nozzle until well drenched with water. The
force, the natural force of the fall, threw
water across the street and as high as the
roof, and was satisfactory.
In the afternoon the pump was worked so
as to give additional force to the water, and
the fire pings were tested at two points—near
the City Hotel and near Union National
Bank. Water was thrown one hundred and
fifty feet on a level, and was thrown over the
hotel, four stories high, and over Mrs.
Wantz’s three-story dwelling, giving great
satisfaction. When the water works are all
completed greater force can he given the
wafer.
I’ipc mains are laid along Main street a short
distance beyond the railroad. Considerable de
lay is being caused by the impossibility to get
pipe, and it will he several weeks before the
West End will have water.

Opportunities for Investment.
Capitalists, or those with money to invest,
have two opportunities offered them through
the advertising columns of the Advocate.
One is silver mining stock, which for a time
is offered at fifty cents on the dollar, with six
per cent, interest, on face value, guaranteed for
three years. The officers of the company arc
well known to our readers, and full informa
tion may he obtained from them.
The other is $5,000 in seven per cent, of
dividend stock of the Westminster Water
Company, upon which dividends will he paid
in January and July. The dividend for Jan
uary next will he deposited with the treasur
er. ‘ Also $5,000 six per cent, first mortgage
thirty-year bonds (whole mortgage $20,000),
interest January and July. Next January in
terest deposited with the treasurer. Bids for
these bonds will be received only until Friday
next. The officers of this company arc well
known also, and can give full information
j concerning the investments.
Considering the low rates ot interest gov
i eminent, state and municipal bonds are bear
i ing, the inducements offered by these com
! panics are worthy of investigation.
Pntnpsoo Items.
On Wednesday of last week Mr. Alfred
Kelhaugh shot a rattle snake in their yard
which measured three and a-half feet, having
six rattles and button.
One day last week Mr. Jacob Weller was
kicked in the side by his horse, which he was
leading to water, llis side was very sore and
i painful for several days.
From the 9th to the 23d of July there were
1 five tons of onions shipped from this station,
and during the season there were also six tons
of cherries shipped from the same point. \\ e
expected to keep the Western Maryland Rail
road pretty busy this fall and winter hauling
■the potatoes of our vicinity; but since the
worm has made its appearance in the heart ot
the vine, we are not so sanguine on that point,
as the vines are beginning to die before the
potatoes have time to mature.
New wheat is turning out well, as we are
informed that from eighteen to twenty sheaves
on an average make a bushel. ...
There will he a Sunday School picnic in
Mr. Elijah Taylor’s woods, hack of Mr. J. A.
Bush’s residence, on Saturday, the 11th inst.,
for the benefit of Patapsco Sunday School.
Several addresses will be delivered.
Alarming Fire.
The Gettysburg Compiler of Wednesday
says: —Gettysburg was threatened with a dis
astrous fire Tuesday afternoon. About 2:20
flames were seen issuing from the stable ot
Rev. Dr. Wolf, near the Foundry. In a tew
moments three stables on the east, 1 to- A-
Martin’s, Joseph Jacobs s and C. E. fink s,
were also on fire, and a stiff breeze earned
sparks three blocks eastward, setting scores
of roofs in a blaze. By the most vigorous
work, at the fire and along the spark
material damage confined

Engine No. 215, of an east-bound stock
! train on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad,
I ran into a coal train at Watersvillc at 1:30 on
j Wednesday. The train in front had broken
I loose, leaving eight hoppers on the track, the
| break occurring in the rear of the conductor,
I not giving him time to go back before the
other train came thundering on. The crash
J was terrific. Two cars loaded with grain
i were wrecked and five loaded with stock.
Five hundred bead of hogs, 34 horses and 13
mules were on the wrecked cars; about 40
hogs were killed outright and 10 nudes. Crip
pled horses and mules were lying around the
track. David Drenner, engineman, and John
Christian, fireman, stood at their posts and
escaped uninjured, as did also the conductor,
W in. Hayes. Trains were delayed about live
hours.
The shipment of wheat from this point is
greater than was ever known before. It is a
common thing now to see from six to nine
cars loading at one time. There seems to be
one steady stream of the golden grain pouring
in. Considerable of our grain is grading No.
1 at the elevator.
Corn promises well. The corn fields of
Frank Brown, James Shipley and J. Frank
Shipley, on adjoining lands, some two hun
dred and fifty acres, is the finest body of corn
we ever saw growing. The color is dark
green, and from a distance looks like a great
forest. The average yield on this ground can
not fall much short of fifteen barrels per acre.
There is now a rivalry among our farmers,
which promises in the future better farming
and better crops.
At last we are assured of a new road into
Sykesville, the right to build being secured
without complying with the requirements of
the Code, but by mutual consent and a gener
ous free gift. Mr. Frank Brown, who has
been lately combated in all enterprises of this
kind, has at last won. The movement has
been conducted quietly for some time, and
the public were surprised on Friday last when
the work was commenced. The road com
mences at Sykesville at Mr. Samuel R. Du
vall’s shop: then through the lands of George
Hayworth and Charles D. Warfield;-then
through the land of F. Brown to intersect the
Sykesville and Eldersburg road near Spring
field Mills. M essrs. Warfield, Hayworth and
Duvall have generously given their land. Mr.
Brown will make the road, and spare no ex
pense to make it the finest drive out of Sykes
ville.
We shall give next week a full description
of the improvements that will shortly be com
menced.
Two more dark horses have entered for the
legislative race in this district. Things look
very dark for them at present. It is said one
I of our politicians will use considerable pork
| in the coming contest —quite a number of pigs
are already promised; so if they do not get
them, there will be considerable squealing.
The same men who went to the last state con
vention want to go to the next one. There is
a sameness about this that is painful.
As the number of candidates are increasing
in our district, we would request them to send
us their names. We will then arrange them
in alphabetical form for reference.
A Lornl Option Movement.
At a recent meeting of temperance workers
at Carroll Hall, this city, a paper was adopted
setting forth that the temperance question will
be agitated this fall, and stating the two
methods by which the question is usually
brought before the people at elections. One,
the paper says, is for the temperance men to
put a local option ticket in the field, either by
.endorsing local option advocates on regular
political tickets or by nominating an inde
pendent ticket. The other plan is to ignore
politics: to ask the authorities of each party
to have for and against local option printed on
their tickets, to have the same regularly count
ed and returns made, and to exact a pledge
from candidates for the Legislature to obey
the will of the majority, whether it be for or
against local option. In asking pledges of
candidates, their individual opinions are not
to be inquired into. The paper then discusses
the merits of each plan, and expresses a
preference for the latter, and asks that
two plans be considered by the friends of
local option and the authorities of the two
political parties. The document is signed by
Rev. C. A. Reid, as President, and Win. A.
Wampler, as Secretary. Our limited space
does not allow of the publication of the whole
paper, and we have given the substance ot
it in the above.
Union Mills Items.
The local option meetings held last Sunday
afternoon and evening at the M. E. Church at
this place were largely attended. The after
noon meeting was opened by prayer by Rev.
J. C. Brown, pastor of the charge, after
which Rev. C. A. Reid, of Westminster,
preached a powerful, persuasive and argu
mentative sermon. He was followed by an
address by C. S. Mosher, in which he showed
i the good resulting from local option in the
counties in which it prevailed. In the even
ing the church was filled beyond seating ca
pacity, the audience consisting chiefly ot
young people, yet there were voters present.
After prayer by Rev. Reid, a District Alliance
was organized with the following olficers:
President, Win. 11. Tingling; Vice-Presidents,
Samuel Kesselring and Jacob Wolfe; Secre
tary, F. M. Hall; Treasurer, John Bemiller;
Executive Committee, Joseph O. Jones, Jno.
Leister, .Win. Tagg, Absalom Yeiser, Mrs. F.
M. Hall and Laura K. Burgoon. Addresses
were then delivered by Rev. Reid and Mr.
Mosher. From the attendance and the inter
est manifested, it is evident that the people
of the third district are thoroughly awakened
to the evils of the liquor traffic. The District
Alliance will meet again this (Saturday)
I evening.

The Second Nine of the Westminster Asso
ciation has scored two more victories. On
I Saturday it dressed off a picked nine by a
! score of 19 to lin six innings. On Wednes
i day they went to Uniontown and defeated the
I club of that place by a score of 18 to 10. They
I were* kindly received at Uniontown, and the
1 game was very interesting. Nothing occurred
jto mar the pleasure of the occasion. B. F.
| Crouse umpired the game satisfactorily to
I both nines. Smith and Miller constituted the
battery of our nine, and Mac Brown and Dr.
Geo. Martin of the Uniontown club, each do
ing creditably in his position. McFadden and
Oscar Cook did effective fielding for the Kala
koras, and Turtle, of the Second Nine, in
center field, captured four flies, two of which
were brilliant catches. Brilliant catches were
also made by Miller, Gist and Frizell, of
Westminster, and Hiteshew and McFadden,
of Uniontown. Miller, Frizell and Smith
made two-base hits, but William Martin, of
Uniontown, batted the best ball. We hope
to see a return game soon. The Second N ine
have never yet been beaten, and are now look
ing around for other clubs to conquer.

The German Lutheran Sunday School pic

of Mr. Growl’s ice cream were sold.

Rev. John Lloyd, near this place, met with
[ a painful accident on Tuesday. He was help
ing Mr. Joshua Lockard to thresh wheat.
Whilst they were removing the table from
one side of the machine to the other, it was
caught by the strap and hurled around, strik
ing Mr. Lloyd on the side of the head, cutting
it very badly. Dr. J. P. Summers was sum
moned and sewed up the wound, but at last
accounts Mr. Lloyd was suffering very much.
Harvest is over, and the yield is nearly or

Senator Dorsey’s Revelations.
S. W. Dorsey, one of the Star-route celeb
rities who recently squeezed through the U.
S. District Court “by the skin of his teeth."
has made a revelation of how Garfield was
nominated ami how Indiana was carried in
1880 for the Republicans. This plain, unvar
nished tale of Dorsey is another illustration
of the axiom that “when rogues fall out
honest men get their own,” or get at the
truth. The statement of Dorsey is a story of
Republicanism told by a prominent and in
fluential Republican, and ought to be read by
everybody. Mr. Dorsey has been a United
States Senator. He was in 1880 the honored
Secretary of the Republican National Com
mittee. He was the friend and confidential
advisor of ex-President Garfield, who pressed
him to accept a Cabinet appointment. He
was the close ally and co-laborer of President
Arthur in the management of the campaign
of 1880. His story of that campaign is a
chapter of the history of Republicanism, and
ought to be before the eyes of the whole
world, that all may know the corrupt and
dishonest methods by which the Republican
party has kept itself in power. The revela
tion of Dorsey makes several columns. We
have space for only a brief extract.
Mr. Dorsey says : “That there was money
used in Indiana in 1880, certainly nobody
will deny.” When asked how much was used
in round figures, Mr. Dorsey replied: “Four
hundred thousand dollars.”
There is no question as to how the money
was expended. Nearly 5,000 ‘ 'honest, square
Republicans,” scattered through all the town
ships of the state, reported “how much it
would take to influence people to a change of
thought," and received tin* amount necessary
for the conversion. Mr. Dorsey and his as
sociates “took care that the three men from
each township should know just what each
got. so that there was no chance of nigging.”
Dorsey’s statement says:
u Eaeh one of these men, neatly 3,000 in
number, reported trhal they could do amt haw
much if iron Id take to injluenre people to a
change of thought. H e paid 810 to some and
as high as 873 to others, tad ire took rare that
the three melt from every toivnship should
know just trhaf each got. There was no chance
for “ nigging .” There, that's all there was
in carrying Indiana in October.
The Bedford, Pa., Gazette wants to know
if those Republicans who objected to Gov.
Pattison as a candidate last year because be
is a native of Maryland, will extend the same
to their present candidate for state treasurer,
William Livsey. who was born in England,
served in the British arm}-, and lived there
longer than in this country, coming here in
1858.

Last Friday evening July (ith at 7.40 there passed
away a character that has been conspicuous in the
county for half a century. Rev. Dr. Coshy, of the
Protestant Methodist church, is no more. After an
illness lasting less than a fortnight he died the
death of a Christian soldier and was gathered to his
fathers. It sometime occurs that the brightest lives
become dimmed hyage and that the youngerciasscs
lose interest in a life that has lost much of its vital
and physical powers. But we douht-if there have
been at any time in the circles of society that have
benefited and adorned Abingdon a greater number
ofanxious hearts than heat with suspense while
Dr. Cosby was in his last illness. He was unani- 1
moody beloved and revered. His character was
bright and his life useful and in all his walks among
men his very purity and sincerity and patience and
integrity put up friendships that never abated. He
was twice married, his first wife being a sisterto the
late Hon. C. 8. Bekem, and his second one, Mrs.
Montgomery, of Montgomery in this county. He
reared a large family of children all of whom we
believe are numbered among the useful and respect
ed classes of the country. Last Sunday he was laid
to rest among the generation of Abingdon’s substan
tial people who now lie in the populous cemetery
near the depot. Being a conspicuous Mason he was
buried with Masonic honors. He leaves behind him
a large number of devoted friends who will yet
speak his name and enumerate his virtues for many
a year to come. Hewasbornin Staunton, Va., Jan.

Edward Zollickeoffer, and Sirs. D. A. C. Webster, of
