"Bliiikie'' Morgan Horribly Executed. THE HISTORY OF HIS CRIME. He Protests His Innocence to the Last—The Kansas War. General Topics. I Associated Press Dlspateb.es to the Herald. I Columbus, 0., August 2. —Charlesalias Blinkey Morgan, tbe principal figure in tbe Ravenna rescue and murder of Detec tive Hulligan, of Cleveland, was exe cuted in the Ohio Penitentiary this (Fri day) morning. The history of the crime is briefly as follows: On January 29th, 1887, a fur dealer's store in Cleveland was robbed of a quantity of valuable furs which the burglars took to Pittsburg. Captain Hoehn, of the police force followed and in a few days arrested Harry, alias Kid, McMunn, for complicity in robbery. De tective Hulligan, of Cleveland, went to Pittsburg to aid in bringing home the prisoner and they took the night train on the Cleveland and Pitts burg road for home. Hulligan was handcuffed to McMunn, and Captain Hoehu sat in the aisle watching. At Alliance, where the Fort Wayne road crosses, three men got on the same car and just before Ravenna was reached, they, with a man who had sa r , behind Hoehn since the train let Pittsburg, tcade a concerted auack on the officers. Hoehn was cov ereu with two revolvers, while one of tbe men, always believed to be Morgan, beat Hulligan over the head with a coupling pin, wrapped in paper. Hoehn jumped up and endeavored to aid his subordin ate, but was"beaten down, shot aud left for dead. The murderers then undid McMunn's handcuffs and all escaped, leaving Hulligan and Hoehn stretched in their blood on the floor. Hulligan died a few days later and Hoehn was laid up several months. After a long search McMunn, Morgan, John Caughlin and John Robinson were heard of at Alpena, Mich., where they committed a burglary and were recognized. McMunn got away, b>-t a Sheriff's posse cornered the others, and a fight ensued. The three were captured and brought to Ravenna for trial, but in the fight the Sheriff of Alpena received a wound from which he died a month later. Tho story of the trial of Morgan and his pals needs no repetition. The prisoner spent a quiet day, refus ing to see visitors except those with whom he had been intimate and had taken an interest in the commutation of the sentence. To all with whom he talked he protested his innocence of the crime. He interested himself part of the time writing autographs and preparing souvenirs to send to friends. These consisted of buckeyes on which were painted the names of Cleve land and Thurman, 1888, and in the cen ter a neatly painted bandana handker chief. They were made by one of the prisoners and are strung on blue ribbons. Yesterday Morgan gave an order turning over his body to Dr. Clemmer, the physician of the prison, with the request that it be used for the benefit of the sciences and afterwards cremated, though he did not want it used in any way which would cause notoriety. After giving the order, however, he received a letter from Nellie Lowry, of Cleveland, who is reputed to have been his mistress, asking his body to be sent to her. Morgan changed bis mind after reading the letter and asked the physician to relinquish the claim, which was done. A poet mortem, how ever, will be held this morning. There has been wonderful curiosity to see the prisoner. The warden this evening had received more than 500 applications to witness the execution. Nearly all had to be refused, as the officials tried to keep the number to the limit of about twenty-five. Morgan left a letter for the Warden, in which he thanked the officers of the penitentiary for their uni form kindness, and reiterated most pious ly his entire innocence of complicity in either the fur robbery or mur der of Hulligan. He tells of an alibi he expected to prove if he secured a second trial, and points out what he calls inconsistencies in the testimony that convicted him. He concluded: "I write this statement to obviate the necessity of mak ing any remarks from the scaf fold, and also to keep the reporters for tbe prees from butchering up to suit their own ideas what I am desirous of saying to tbe public. You will un derstand from the foregoing that I shall make no verbal statement from the scaf fold and have nothing more to say, save what I have writeen." The procession started to the annex at la. m. The execution was witnessed by about thirty people. Morgan was on the scaffold when tbe spectators entered the execution department. The death war rant was read, and Morgan refused to say a word, but «tood like a statue as the ropes were adjusted. A friend of his raised some disturbance, and talked loudly until he was put out, but was re admitted at the request of the con demned. When all was ready the cap was drawn down and the rope began to tighten. Morgan spoke in a loud tone, "Good-bye, Nellie." Then the rope was sprung. The work was not a success, the body writhed in great agony, tbe legs I'erked and the bands clutched. Slowly le strangled to death. The scene was a horrible one. BLEEDINU KANSAS. The Troops Called Out to lluoll the Border War. Topeka, Kan., August 2.—Attorney (ieneral Bradford and General Meyers nave returned from Stevens county and made their report to Governor Martin. After hearing the rep rt and recommendations of the officer, the Gov ernor was satisfied that the civil authori ties were powerless to preserve good order in Stevens county; he therefore decreed that the second brigade of the Kansas National Guard and the second battery pf artillery of Topeka proceed there post haste, and his order was sent out by telegraph. Eight companies rendezvous at Hutchinson to-night, and leave there ot 8 o'clock to-morrow morning by spec ial train for Liberal.

The water in the Mississippi river rose a foot and at the St. Cloud dam eight feet. THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 3, 1888.

THE "HUBLK" RED MEN. Conflicting Reports from Mandlnf Rock Acnicr. St. Paul, August 2. — Pioneer Press specials about the Standing Rock con ference are rather contradictory to-night. The regular correspondent at the Agency says yesterday's council lasted over four hours, but nothing was accom plished. The Indians refused to sign. Speeches were made by Gait, Mad Bull, Sitting Bull and other chiefs. Sitting Bull said he was opposed to the treaty, and as many of the Indians had crops to look after there was no use keeping them in council longer. Gait said he would never sign either paper. A Pierre correspondent says: "Direct and reliable information to-night from Standing Rock Agency is to the effect that the Indians will sign the treaty beyond doubt. The Reds are simply holding out for presents,.etc., and at no conference has there been any strong opposition to the signing of the treaty. Intelligence from Lower Brule and Crow Creek this morn ing, to the effect that there was no opposition down there, confirms the belief that the Com mission will succeed in its work, and that within two months the reserva tion will be thrown open. Governor Church has returned to Bismarck from Standing Rock agency. He says that while the Indians are stubborn he be lieves the Commission will Anally induce them to sign. Condensed Telegrams. The son of Morris Murphy, 13 years old, was accidentally killed in a drift in the old mine at Smartsville, Cal. Captain Tremper, of the steamboat Baldwin, on the Hudson river, reports i hat a metedr crashed through the pilot house of bis craft on Tuesday night, off Manhattanville. On the death of General Dreutein, Military Governor of the Kiev District in Russia, it was announced his death was due to appoplexy. The Wiener Zeituug now says that it has been learned that General Dreutein was murdered by a Nihilist at Kiev. At the Ohio and Wisconsin coal mine, two miles west of Albia, lowa, Michael Dial, an old miner, killed his own son Dick with a shot gun. The son was about 27 years old. The old man is in the custody of the sheriff and nearly crazed with grief. It seems that .there was a family row, and the father claims to have killed his son in self-defense. The will of the late Mrs. McCullough, widow jot tbe tragedian, Jonn McCul lough, has been admitted to probate. The estate left by the testatrix is valued at about $25,000. All is willed to her son and his children, with a special clause directing that all jewels and medals of the late great actor be given to her granddaughter, Letitia, when 21 years old. Should she die be fore then, they are to be placed in some public institution and preserved forever in memory of John McCullough. Blame Contradicts Chamberlain. Cork, August 2. —It is reported that Blame in conversation with some of the Town Councilors who went on board the steamer City of New York, stated that he could not understand how Chamber lain was led to say there were few prom inent public men in America who favored Home Rule. It would be difficult said Blame, to find any number of prominent Americans who were not Home Rulers. He did not believe in Chamberlain as a politician and thought his influence almost gone. PACIFIC SLOPE. The Survivors of the Don Leon. STORY OF THE VESSEL'S LOSS. A Visiting Teacher Suicides—Pas senger Bate War—Coast Callings. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald.) San Francisco, August 2.^—Among the passengers on the barkentine City of Papette, which arrived to-day from Tahiti, were the Captain and crew of the schooner Don Leon, which foundered May 6, off the Magdalena Islands. They report the schooner was leaking badly at Tahiti, but was calked there and they sailed for the Gambier Islands. She left Gambier April 22; and on the 30th the vessel began to leak. Men were put to the pumps but it was found impossible to keep her free and the leak increased. The schooner was put about with the hope of returning to Gambier before she went down. The men worked at the pumps until May 6th, when they became choked and the water poured into the vessel, when it was evi dent she must go down. At 11 o'clock that night boats were lowered and provisioned, and the crew abandoned the vessel. Soon after tak ing to the boats the schooner disap peared. Tbe men were then two hun dred miles from laud, arid a heavy gale was blowing, which continued for three days, after which it subsided. Finally, after drifting about for two or three days, Aratika, one of the Society Islands, was sighted. Here they landed and recuper ated for a few days, and then took pass age for Tabita, whence they sailed on the City of Papette for San Francisco. The Don Leon was formerly called the Lottie Fairfield, and was built in Nova Scotia in 1883. About a year ago she was sold at the Merchants' Exchange to A. Black, of Los Angeles, for $5,000. Her cargo consisted of fifty tons of pearl shells, and was valued at about $2,000. The schooner was insured for about $5, --000. BAY CITY BRIEFS.

Local agents of Eastern lines are be ginning to feel greatly exercised at the point which cutting fares to the East has reached.

One road it was stated to-day had booked a party of Chinese for seventeen dollars lees per fare than the regular rate to Chi cago. a miser's will. William Rein, a miser who died a few days since, left property variously esti mated at from f50,00Q to *250,0Q0, In his will he left many valuable legacies to charitable institutions here, but it now appears the will is invalid and void as to the legacies to charities, the code provid ing that the will of any one bequeathing any portion of bis estate to charitable or ganizat ions must have been made out at least thirty days before tbe testator's death. Rein made bis will just twenty eight days before bis death. the riple contests. To day's contest between the rank and file of soldiers at tbe Presidio has as sumed a new phase.

Armory Hall was enlivened last night by a white dress ball, given under the auspices of the Frank Bartlett Post, W. R. C. No. 7. The attendance was large, over 100 couples being present and the effect of the conditional snowy dresses was very pleasing, contrasting wonder fully with the black-coated gentlemen, all of whom wore rosettes in their but ton-holes.

Harrison Cannot Carry Indiana. Los Angeles, August 1, 1888. Editors Herald—Having been a resi dent of Los Angeles for the past two months, and having hailed from Gen. Harrison's State I should like to tell your Republican people not to build their hopes too high on Gen. Harrison. Des pite the fact that Harrison is a Hoosier yet Indiana will give no less than 4000 majority for Cleveland. Since coming to your city I have learned to love tbe Herald for two reasons, viz: First, it is so fearless in the support of its own section of country; second, its avoidenceof dirt and abuse. No paper can expect to merit the patronage of respectable people which persists in throwing dirt. But what I desire to call your attention to more especially, is the item under the head of ' Harsh Treatment" in your issue of August lst. Officer Collins, or any other officer making such an arrest is to tally unfit to be on any police force. Now I belong to the Holman family, and if my business will admit, I propose to enter the field of stumps and wear the top of at least a few stumps smooth in order to elect as good a man as ever graced the walls of the White House. .Messrs. Editors,why did'nt you tell the people how scientifically the colored man "done up" Vail, the editor of the »S'(ar, of Pasadena? More Anon. __ImW"Tivt Illustrated Herald is now on hand at, this office and for sale at the extremely low price of 15 cents each, or eight copies for $1. The current number has a vast amount of fresh statistical matter of great interest regarding this section. The Illustrated Herald of 1888 is by all odds the best medium through which to make known to those at a distance all the varied attractions and industries of Los Angeles and of the semi-tropics generally. If you want to keep up the boom send a copy of this splendidly embellished publication to your friends in the East. Broke a Skylight. Henry Fosheim, a young painter, met with a singular accident yesterday morn ing, which might have proved serious but for the presence of mind of a by stander. He was at work on the wooden awning in front of No. 100 Market street, and did not notice that be was standing on the skylight. It suddenly gave way and let him dangle through. James Tay lor, who saw the accident from the other side of the street, rushed over and mounted the ladder which the painters had left there. He grabbed Fosheim by bis clothes and drew him up on the roof again. The young man was not injured save that his hands were slightly cut. The Rose Stable In Town. Mr. L. J. Rose, Jr., the well-known horseman of Santa Barbara, arrived in the city yesterday with his string of trot ting horses: Stemboul, the six-year-old stallion; Alfred R , five-year-old ; Dubec, four-year-old, and the two-year-old filly by Stamboul out of Ynez. They are all in fine condition and Stamboul will make it remarkably interesting for Arab when these two great trotters meet.
