MO MIA V, JANCAUY 81, 1889.
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.

WASHINGTON NOTES.
A Forecast of the Progress
of Legislation.
SUBSTITUTE FOR MILLS' BILL.
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.

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.

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.

murder. Mrs. Bloodgood is the wife of
the foreman of the Ham's Fork coal

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

ers galloped away, and, it is believed,
caught an east-bound train. Mrs. Blood
good is a good looking blonde, about 2G
