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.

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.

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.

AMUSEMENTS.
"The Soap Bubble" at the Urand.
Social Gathering's.
There was not a very large audience at
the Opera House last night, but all pres
ent seemed to be well pleased with the
airiness of The Soap Bubble. Mr. Farron
failed to sing ''Lena the Strawberry
Girl," which was greatly missed by his
admirers in that character. Miss Dolly
Foster is a charming little actress and
could well fill a part requiring more tal
ent than the one in which she appears.
The singing of the quartette ll good and
their efforts are repeatedly encored.
There is no change of programme for
the rest of the week.

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.
