How buoyant the American money market is. Two weeks ago the banks of New York hold only $7,000,000 above the legal reserve limits. At the close of last week the surplus had in one week risen to $18,000,000. Ten or a dozen millions of money cuts little figure in our gigantic financial system. Time and again the Herald has pointed out the fact that property is no higher in Los Angeles than is similar property, correspondingly situated in up country" counties. At Santa Rosa, the other day, J. H. Glen sold to C. N. Car rineton nine acres for $3,600. That is nearly $400 per acre, and the price closely approximates the highest figures paid for land in this section. The mercury during the last two mornings has touched the freezing point of water in Los Angeles. This is the first time this year that so low a temper ature has been reached. Meantime, during all the twenty-four hours, except ing for a few in the early morning, the temperature is delightful. The days are bright and sunny, the air is bracing, and every element of the climate is at its acme of pleasantness. The Herald this morning embraces the opportunity of presenting an exhaus tive exhibit of the growth and resources of that splendid colony, Ontario. The sketch is really a very roseate one and shows how things move here in the sun lit semi-tropics where the elements are favorable, as they emphatically are at that place, and as they frequently are in this section. The record is one that any place may well indulge in a feeling of pardonable pride in respect of. When Brer Jones ran against Brer Otis he struck a foe man worthy of his steel. It is perhaps a question as to which is the greater master of that nervous, sinewy, runic Saxon which is commonly known as Billingsgate. When Brer Jones attacked dancing we knew there would be trouble, for if there is one pastime to which Brer Otis is at tached to the point of fanaticism it is tripping the light fantastic toe. When this toe was stepped upon, a cacophonous yowl came forth as naturally as night succeeds the day. An old saw runs that two of a kind can never agree. All the old novels and comedies, like Gil Bias, are full of the envenomed contests of literary men. The suitors in the halls of princes and nobles who filled that role in the early days of what is now known as the Fourth Estate were not more rancorous againßt each other than are the members of the guild which furnishes their successors. The way certain members of tbe press of Los Angeles are "laying" for each other just now furnishes an interesting spec tacle to Gods and men. It is certainly highly illustrative of a fine, genial type of human nature. What the American Union needs at present, and needs badly, is more money. Our enterprises and commer cial operations call for a great expansion of the circulating medium. France, with a population of le.=s than 36,000,000, and an area of only about 200,000 square miles, has a circulation of $47.22 per capita. Great Britain, with 32,000,000 population and a less area, has $23.72 per capita of money. With nearly 70,000,000, or close to the combined population of France and Great Britain, we have only $15.70 per capita of money. The area over which this is to operate is over 3,500,000 square miles. Free coin age of gold and silver is what we want. There is in this city, just now, a won derful exhibition of Bedlands, and it is creditable in the extreme. It consists of oranges and other horticultural special ties. It is not half so creditable, how ever, as the exhibition our old friend Scipio Craig made of himself in Los An geles, a short time ago. Scipio has broadened out into a fine youth of 215 pounds avoirdupois, and he is running the Redlands Cryptograph, one of the handsomest sheets in America, with his old-time sprightliness. The last time we saw "Skip" be only weighed about 150 pounds, which shows what Redlands good cheer will do. In sober earnest ness, Redlands is the most wonderful •volution of development in Southern California. It is, so to speak, only a day old, and yet it abounds in churches, pub lic schools and elegant villas and the most prolific orange groves in California. Any one who invested there two years ago has increased his money five-fold, and he can get it on the nail on the ■lightest intimation that he is willing to ■ell. The growth of Riverside was a wonder. That of Redlands is a miracle. An Absurd Proposition. Amongst the other vagaries of our es teemed contemporary, the Times, is the editorial intimation that Hon. S. M. White is blowing hot and cold on the adoption by the Legislature of the new charter. Nothing could be more ab surd. Senator White has introduced a measure into the Senate confirming the charter, and to assume that he is, at the same time, working to beat it is an im putation on his persoual honor which any Los Angeles journal, considering his long and honored residence in our midst, should be very chary of making. For Senator White to keep the word of prom ise to the ear and break it to the hope of his constituents would be a r&le to which no one who knows the man —and we had supposed that the Times people knew him pretty well by this time—be lieves that any combination of circum stances could force him to stoop. The Her ald did not know what Mr. White's position was on the charter when he left for Sacramento. In fact, we do not know whether he favored or opposed the adop tion of that instrument at the late elec tion. What we do know is that when ho introduced the bill in the Senate approv ing that instrument he meant to stand by it, and to put it through if his utmost efforts towards that end could avail. If the movement to adopt the new Charter miscarries, it will be owing to some cir cumstances that the Democratic Senator from Los Angeles cannot control. In the same breath in which the Timet says if the passage of the Charter shall miscarry it will be owing to Senator White, it says that Mr. Buckley controls the Assembly, and that ho is determined to defeat the Charter. Accepting, for the sake of argu ment, our contemporary's postulate about Mr. Buckley's control of the As sembly, and his animosity to the Charter, how does it come to forget that Senator White was re-elected President pro tern. of the Senate against a determined effort of Mr. Buckley to advance his frisnd Senator Yell, of Mendocino county to that position? If Mr. Buckley is so puissant in the Assembly as the Times claims that he is, would there be any violence in supposing that, in spite of Mr. White,he might defeat the Charter? Haw absurd then, to say that if the Charter should fail of adoption, Mr. White need expect no more favors or recognition from the people of Los Angeles ? Small difficulties like these, however, give very little concern to the pundits who control the editorial columns of tho Times. Such a thing as a logical absurd ity is a choice tid-bit to them, and they are utterly insensible to the force of the reductio ad absurdum. In addition, they have always shown themselves highly sensible of that time-honored Republican axiom, that a lie well stuck to is as good as the truth. Kuowing thia latter fact, we have little hope of seeing our esteemed contemporary doing justice to an individual Democrat, or to Democrats collectively, or to the Democratic idea. As well expect the infuriated bull to develop a fondness for the red rag. The London Exhibit. The State Legislature is asked to ! appropriate $250,000 for the purpose of making an exhibit of California products in London. The sum may be a round one, and there is no question that the taxe3 wrung from the people should be carefully and judiciously expended. Ours is a prosperous people aud a gener ous people. All they demand is that extravagance be not exercised. If even the large sum asked for be well and care fully used, there will be no complaint made. That a proper exhibit of our products set up in London would do good, need not be argued. That metropolis of the world uses an amazing amount of our goods now and may be made the market for more of our products. Here are a few figures showing what we send the mer chants of London: The San Jose Packing Company, in 188S, sold 15,000 cases of their goods iv London. The Alaska Commercial Company sold $600, --000 worth of canned salmon in that mar ket. The London agent of Wm. T. Cole man & Co. sold $1,000,000 worth of canned salmon, canned fruit and wines and brandies in London during the past year. The English market takes immense quantities of our wheat, barley, honey, fruits, wines, brandies, mustard seed, and indeed of nearly every product of our farms and vines. England is also an excellent field in which to recruit settlers for onr waste lands. People of substanco can be in duced to come here and buy farms, build up houses and develop the latent re sources of this matchless State. The English tourist is the most rest less.enterprising and profitable of al I, save only the American. The London "globe trotter" is the most übiquitous biped ex tant. He goes everywhere, and wants to see everything. A well-mounted series of pictures of our mountains, of Yosemite, of Shasta, etc., will turn in numerable eyes to this Mecca of the sight-seeker. Our hotels, railroads and other concerns will be the beneficiaries of such travel. j Capital, too. Where can money be found if not in London? Let it but appear that dividends await the invest ment of cash, and London will furnish it. We can all afford to contribute our mite to the cause of making a fitting exhibit of our products in London. It will open up markets for these products. And that is what we want. If the market were assured, promptly and certainly, we would extend our orchards a hundredfold in the com ing year. A lagging, uncertain demand is all that prevents the most astounding results being reached in the way of de velopment. The demand can be devel oped in London. Here are millions of acres of fertile soil awaiting the development which comes with the active use of the plowshare of the industrious farmer. The carrying out of this programme calls for more than mere muscle. It requires money, too. England is just the place to get the men with the money. But exhibit our products before the eyes of the fore handed British farmer, and he is more than likely to forsake the humid atmos phere, the cloudy skies, the soggy soil of his native heath, for our genial climate and fertile mesas. Our mines, on. manufacturing interests and our fruit industries demand large outlays of capital to bring out their latent resources. London is the place to get this, too. The mass meeting called for to-night to enforce the approval of the new Char ter by the Legislature cannot fail to have great weight at Sacramento. The Herald honestly believes that tho only real dif ficulty in the way of the adoption of that instrument, if at the last there shall prove to be any, will be found in tho line of the suggestions made in these columns when it was discussed by this journal, prior to the late election at which the people adopted it. We did not then pre sent our views as absolutely conclusive. On the contrary, they wore put forward tentatively and as food for thought to the voter. Unless it can be shown to the satisfaction of fair-minded men, aud men amongst others who voted for the new Charter, that we should be crippled for two yenrs in our municipal action should it be adopted, having been passed upon affirmatively by the people of Los Angeles, it ought to be enacted into law at once. No other consideration should be allowed a feather's weight in determining the mat ter. Its adoption or non-adoption has, at no stage of its discussion, been a partizan measure, and upon tho platform to-night will figure many Democrats as its en thusiastic advocates. These facts ought to put a disheartening discount on such poppy-cock as the Times has indulged in. Goldites raise a great howl about the piles of silver coin lying idle in the Treasury vaults. They are very careful not to say aaythiug about the gold lying in the same repositories and quite as idle as the Bilver. The Bland act has been in operation ten years. In that time the coinage of silver standard dol lars has been about $310,000,000. De ducting from this the amount of the coiu in actual circulation, plus silver certifi cates issued against the coin, and we find the surplus of silver "lying idle" is only about $30 000,000. The total gold coin and bullion in the Treasury vaults is $332,551,305. Deducting tho certifi cates drawn against this, it appears that there is the equivalent of nearly $200, --000,000 of goid lying "as idle as a painted ship upon a paiuted ocean." There is six times as much "idle" gold as there is "idle" silver in tho Treasury vaults. THE BIG TELESCOPE. Something Definite to be Arranged on Tuesday. Mr. Alvan G. Clark was keeping him self warm in front of the big stove in the Hollenbeck lobby last night when a Herald man dropped in to see if any thing was going on. The scribe asked him if anything had been done regard ing the big telescope for Wilson's Peak, and the celebrated lens manufacturer re plied: "Well, I have bad a conference with President Bovard, of the Univer sity, and Mr. E. F. Spence, but so far nothing has been arranged. I think, however, that on Tuesday a decision one way or the other will be made, and if if is settled that I am to make the glass I Start on a trip to the proposed site of the telescope on Wilson's Peak tho nest day." "How long would it take you to make the lens?" ask the scribe. "It is impossible to say; the work might be done in three years and possi bly it would take five, according to the quality of the glass I receive. I expect to get it of Mantoin, of Paris, who cast the glass for the Lick photographic lens, and if your good people here want me to make the lens they had better get their order in soon, because I have been in correspondence with a foreign govern ment for a couple of months past regard ing the manufacture of a 40-inch lens for them." "What government is it?" queried the Herald man. "I am not at liberty to tell you, for I promised Mr. Garrett Serviss, the astro nomical writer for the New York Sun, that I would not make it public just yet. I wiil give you a pointer, though ; it is to be on this continent, that is, between Alaska and Patagonia." "Well, could you not make their lens and the one for this place too?" asked the reporter. "No, I could not undertake both con tracts, as I am already pledged for a 20 --inch glass for Denver. They have not exactly decided on the size they want here, but it will be either a 39 or a 39)£. If I come to terms, I will probably do the work on the glass right in Los An geles, because with your 365 days of sun shine, I could work much more advan tageously than in my quarters at Massa chusetts." "How many men work en tbe lens?" asked the pencillcr. "The help of four assistants to handle the glass is all that I require, as I do all the preparing myself," was the reply. At this juncture a pleasant-looking gentleman sauntered up and greeted Mr. Clark, who a minute or so later intro duced the visitor to the scribe. He proved to be Captain T. E. Fraser, the Superintendent of Construction for the Lick Observatory, and who had full charge of everything connected with that building from the moment when work was first commenced in July, 1880, until its completion last year. Captain Eraser had with him some very fine photographs of the Mt. Hamilton observatory and telescope, which were duly admired by all present who had the opportunity of seeing them. During the conversation which followed, the scribe learned that Professor Pickering, who is now in this city, will in a few days dispatch a couple of his assistants to Peru for the purpose of research from the heights of the Andes. These expeditions are equipped by the Boydon Trust, of Harvard, the Draper fund and a number of other similar endowments.

Th| Difficulties Surrounding the WOol and Lumber Schedules iv Committee. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. I Washinoton, January 20.—8y agree ment the Senate is to proceed to a vote upon the substitute for the Mills bill at 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon; but if that limit is not extended, some important provisions of the bill will have to be voted on with little or no consideration in the Senate. Among the schedules yet undisposed of are those which concern lumber, wool and woolens, gloves and leather. Over the wool and lumber schedules the principal conflict has been ragiDg before the sub-com mittee on Finance in charge of tho bill, and the members of the com mittee say that, in consequence of con tinued pressure from interested parties, no agreement will be reached respect ing these subjects until the last moment. There has been some talk about the probability of certain Repub lican Senators not voting for the bill, but well-informed friends of the measure say there is no danger to be feared from that source. It is believed, furthermore, that Senator Brown, of Georgia, will vote for the bill. When the Tariff bill is disposed of, the Senate will find itself confronted by on accumulation of business demanding prompt attention. First in importance are the appropriation bills which have come over from the House. Several Senators, however, have other legislation they desire to accomplish. Chandler will endeavor to have considered his resolution for the elections investigations, and Frye wants to take up the Pacific Rail road Funding bill, already a special order. Among other bills in a position to be called up for action ia the one upon the regulation of Trusts and Com binations. In tho House on Monday (suspension day) the Oklohoma bill is the unfinished business. Crisp expects to call up the pending contested election cases on Tuesday and Wednesday, but just what order of business the week will assume it is not possible to state, as the Committee on Rivers and Harbors have selected the same days for consideration of the Ap propriation bill, while Randall intends to move to proceed with the Sundry Civil Appropriation bill already before the House. In addition, tho conference re fort on the Nicaraugua Canal Bill, which may prove to be a bone of contention, is likely to be added. ALSATIAN CONTH.AU I? I.AHOK. A (Jlfrarmaker'N >< li< in<- Dropped ou by the Authorities. New York, January 20. —What ap pears to be one of the biggest consign ments of contract labor ever landed here in one ship, was discovered by accident at the landing of the passengers of La Champagne at Castle Garden to-day. It was noticed that more than every other one of the 213 steerage passengers were bound for Florida. It was found that all - had come from Alsace, Germany, and that their passage money had been paid by a man named George Steim of that province. Later in the day a member of the firm of Stratton & Storm, of this city, appeared at Castle Garden. He said he was an Alsatian and had ar ranged to have his countrymen come here, but denied having paid their fare. He had a large tract of land in Florida and proposed to furnish each family with a house and forty acres of land and start them at raising Sumatra tobacco. He would buy the product. The people, to the number of 130, were detained, await ing the action of Collector Magone. the nonnuN cuiibch Fighting Hard To Retain tbe Loaves and Fishes. Washington, January 20. —Argument lias been concluded in the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of the Church of Jesus Christ, of Latter Day Saints, appellants, vs. the United States, brought here on appeal from the Supreme Court of the Territory of Utah. By the terms of the anti-polygamy law the Church corporation was dissolved and its property escheated to the United States. Col. O. H. Broadhead and ex- Senator McDonald, of Indiana, appeared for the appellants. They argued that Congress, by the dissolution of the Church corporation, had as sumed a judicial power. That tho act of the legislative assembly of Utah, incor porating the Church was in the nature of a contract which could not be impaired, and that therefore the corporation could not be dissolved by a legislative enact ment. The doctrine of escheat, the coun sel further maintained, had never been applied in this country to religious and charitable corporations. The only thing the government could do was to bold this property till an equitable claimant was found, and, in this case, a title never having been held by the corporation by trustees who filed the claims for the members in the court below, there was no color of a right for its possession by the government. Solicitor-General Jenks, for the United Stales, argued that Congress nad a con stitutional right to dissolve this corpora tion. He maintained that the clause of tLe Constitution giving Congress the right to legislate for Territories, gave it power to repeal Territorial enactments. He declared, moreover, that as the Con stitution of Utah provided that acts passed by the legislative assembly should be null and void if disapproved by Con gress, express power to repeal Territorial acts had been thereby conferred upon the Legislature of the Federal Govern ment. It was for Congress to determine when and under what circumstances it would exercise this power. He also con tended that the act of the Corporation of the Church was invalid because in con flict with the provision of the Constitution forbidding the establish ment of a religion. He furthermore asserted that the corporation was rightful ly dissolved for the misuse and abuse of its corporate power, and that the corpora tion might also be dissolved under the general police powers of the constitution. The corporation being dissolved, he maintained there was nothing left for the United States to do but to appoint a Re ceiver to take charge of theproperlyof tho corporation. A miners' Grievance. Sr. Louis, January 20.—About 1,800 coal miners employed by the Spring Val ley Coal Company at Spring Valley, 111., held a mass meeting yesterday and de cided to quit work as long as a miner named Mulley worked in the mines. It seems that several weeks ago tbe com pany shut two of its mines, throwing about GOO men out of work. The men in tbe two shafts which remained in opera tion agreed to share their work with the idle men. Mulley refused to share his work and the miners applied to the man ager to discharge him, but he refused to do so; hence the strike. AN EXPERIMENT TKIEII. Tbe Anarchlata Teat the Extent of Police Forbearance, Chicago, January 20. —What was ap parently a deliberate test by the An archists of this city to see how far they could go under Judge Tuloy's decision confirming their right of free assemblaste, was made this afternoon. West Twelfth street Turner Hall was packed with people. A state socialist named Garside was the first speaker, but he was, as usual, quite mild in his utteran ces. Paul Giottkau, a well-known Anarchist agitator,formerly of Milwaukee, followed him. He began by compli menting Garside on the eloquence of his speech, and then assailed the peace policy with extraordinary vehemence. A handful of men, declared Grottkau, would not hope to secure freedom by peaceable means. Oppressors wonld not give up their privileges without fighting for them. ''Every step," said he, "that has been made in advance, has been paid for in blood, and has left a pathway behind it strewn with corpses. The his tory of progress is the history of a battle, and we too will have to light for our rights. How did this republic free it self? By blood. How was the slaveiy question settled? By blood. These victories were not won by holding prayer meetings and singing hymns. I fell you the law must be throttled. We must trample it under our feet, until the law of nature fills the world and reigns supreme. We cannot obtain theje things by peaceful means; we must resort to force. [Wild cheer ing.) The capitalists are prepared to meet the people with force, but some day we will go to them and say, 'Your time iB up.' What happens when two great forces meet?" Grottkau here bent over to the reporters and said : "This is diplomatic language, but we all under stand what it means." This remark was caught by the audience and was greeted with laughter and applause. The speaker, in concluding, shouted, "Down with the capitalists! Down with tho present system 1 Down with the rob bers! Down with wage slavery!" A tremendous cheer, accompanied by the stamping of feet and clapping of hands wnich lasted several minutes, greeted this peroration, and Grottkau resumed his seat with a very self-congratulatory expression. The immense audience slowly dispersed singing the Mareellaise. MS WW IN THE EAST. A General t all Eust of the Mis sissippi. New York, January 20. —Snow com menced falling here this afternoon but soon after turned into rain and rleet, with snow at intervals. At midnight the storm has ceased. The thermometer is several degrees above freezing point. Lyncubi'iig, Va., January 20.—The first snow storm of the season occurred ro-day. Dispatches from other places in Virginia report it snowing and sleeting, and tiiat in some places the snow is ten inches deep. Travel is much obstructed. Washington, January 20.—The first snow this winter began falling here early this morning. In the afternoon it, changed to rain, making walking dis agreeable. Reports received by the sig nal office show that the storm is general throughout the United States, east of the Mississippi river. The indications are that the weather will clear up to-morrow and that the thermometer will fall con siderably on Monday night. Immigration and Extradition. London, January 20. —The Times says: "The Americans have no lack of excuse for strengthening their immigration laws. A good extradition treaty would probably banish from America more ruf fians than a stringent act would keep out of the country. It ia impossible not to feel that things are to bo made harder for the immigrant chiefly to maintain the high rate of wages of the American workman." A Brave Officer Uonc. Washington, January 20. —Gen. Ran dels Mackenzie, United States Army, died at New Brighton, L. 1., yesterday of softening of the brain. He wag ono of the youngest officers in the late war. He graduated from West Point in 1862 at the age of 22. He was a Brigadier-General before he waa 24 and a Major-Geueral before he was 25. From 1867, until two or three years ago, he served with great credit in New Mexico and Arizona. McGlynn's Excommunication. New York, January 20. —Archbishop Corrigan's circular regardingDr.McCilynn and the meetings of the Anti-Poverty So ciety and those who attended them was read at all the masses in the various Catholic churches of this city to-day. Some priests commented strongly on the action of Dr. McGlynn in continuing his tirade of abuse against the church au thorities. JLeavlnsr Legitime. New Yokk, January 20. —Captain Dabm, of the brig Alice Bradshaw,which left Aux Cayes January 1, and arrived in port this morning, reports that Gen. Paul of Legitime's forces has deserted with his army of 3,000 men and joined his for tunes with those of Hippolyte, outside of Port-au-Prince. Fatal Kallroad Collision. Knoxville, Term., January 20. — A passenger train on the East Tennessee road ran into a freight train at Rader's station last evening. The engineer, fire man and a man named Ruf us Patty, of Johnson City, Mere killed and several others were slightly injured. Killed by the cars. Visalia, Cal., January 20.—As the Visalia train was switching at Goshen early this morning, Conductor J. F. Short's foot caught in a frog and the train, in backing up, ran over both his legs. The Visalia train immediately brought him here, where he died in a short time. The Negro Kiots. Atlanta, Pa., January 20. —A special from Ty-Ty says there was no riot there, but tho affair grew out of an attack of drunken whites on a party ot inoffensive Negroes in Hillsdale. Two Negroes were killed, four wounded and about sixty run out of the neighborhood. A Unlet Sunday for Harrison. Indianapolis, January 20.— General Harrison passed the day with his family, attending church in the morning. No political gossip of any significance was developed to-day. Ttae Galena's Arrival. Key West, Januaiy 2J.—The Galena, Admiral Lv c, ariived from Hayti to day. ATTEMPTED LYNCHING Results in the Death of Two of the Prisoners. POUR OP THE POSSE SHOT. The Outcome of a Series of Murders and Depredations by Some Very Hard Cases. lAssocl»t«d I'rcnH DisDMolien to tho llkrai.d. St. Louis, January 20.—A Fort Worth, Texas, dispatch received late last night, says: Sheriff Richardson, of this county, received a telephone message at mid night, from Graham, in Young county, to the effect that about 10 o'clock last night, while the Deputy U. S. Marshal with a posse of Graham citizens was escorting the. four Marlow brothers, "Buck" Hart and another man named Pierce to the Parker County Jail at Weathetford, the prisoners being in dicted for four cases of murder and eight cases of horse theft, a mob of thirty citi zens attempted to lynch them. The marshal and his posse defended tho prisoners. The Marshal, with his prisoners, occu pied two hacks and the mob pulled the Marshal from his hack and then fired into the hacks from each side of the road. Kph Marlow and Sam Creswell, one of the guards, were killed instantly. Bruce Wheeler and Frank Parmßon, of the mob, were killed at the first volley of the guards, while Marshal Johnson and Eugene Logan, the latter one of the mob, were fatally wounded. The other two Marlown were chained to the two Mar lows who were killed. They secured a knife and each cut off a leg of his dead brother at the ankle, and with "Buck" Hart and the other prisoner, escaped in one of the hacks. Both the Marlows who escaped and "Buck" Hart were wounded and were forced to stay at a farmhouse fourteen miles from Graham. The officers have gone to arrest them, and it is thought their wounds are too Bevere to permit of their escaping. A large posse bas been made up at Graham, and are in pursuit of tho fugi tives and members of the mob. Report says the excitement at Graham is at fever heat. It appears that this affair was the sequel to another that occurred on Friday night. Boone Marlow, one of the four brothers mentioned, all of whom have a bad reputation and are accused of various thefts, killed Sheriff Wallace of Young county on the 17th of last December while the latter was attempting to arrest him. Marlow escaped but his brothers were arrested as accessaries. Later they broke jail but were captured, and on Friday nigbt a mob of about thirty men attacked tbe jail with tho purpose of lynching them. The mob failed, however, and at 8 o'clock Saturday the prisoners under a strong guard were started for Weather ford for safe keeping. It waß while this party was en route that tbey were at tacked, with the above result. Shot Hit Uutbaud. Cheyenne, Wyo., January 20.—Sheriff Hunson and two deputies passed through here to-day in hot pursuit of Mrs. Alice Bloodgood and Jack Cushing. who are wanted in Uintah county on a charge of murder. Mrs. Bloodgood is the wife of the foreman of the Ham's Fork coal mines. Two weeks ago Cushing came to the mines, posing as a pugilist, and quickly gained the affections of the foreman's wife, and Friday night they eloped. Bloodgood and some friends started after them only an honr later. All were on horse back as it is thirty miles from the near est railway. About midnight the fleeing couple were overtaken, and a parley was held. Bloodgood offered to forgive his wife if she would return. "Will you let Jack go?" she demanded. Bloodgood re fused, and she drew a pistol and shot him twice, killing him. While his friends were attending to him, the elop ers galloped away, and, it is believed, caught an east-bound train. Mrs. Blood good is a good looking blonde, about 2G years old.
