Semi-Weekly InteriorJouknal Stanford, Kv., Apkil 0, 1S94 W. P. WALTON. 6 OR 8 PAGES. EVERY PBIDAY. Col. Busckinhidgb is still on the rack with Judge Wilson forcing the fangs into him Nothing especially new has been developed, except that a type wri ter has been found who copied letters and directed them to Miss Pollard during 1SS0, the year the colonel says there was no communication between them. It has also been shown that ho gave the plaintifl a certificate of good character to enable her to go beforo the civil service commission, and that he invited and took her to a lecture to n female at Washington last February. The colonel denies nearly everything that Miss Pollard swore to, and it looks a little like "he doth protest too much." lie says the Bcene in tho presence of Mrs Blackburn when sho called him "Willie" and ho addressed her as "Madaliuo" in the most affectionate way, did happen, but that it was only "u superb piece of acting." Ho cluims that Mrs. Ulackburn got things mixed iu her rec ollection of certain remarks which fail to consist with his. "I deserve punishment and I have had it," said tho colo nel, whose face shows that tho terrible strain he has beeu undergoing. Tho wages of sin is death, and no "one realizes it more than the gray hair defendant. The South Carolina war bus smoothed its wrinkled front and tho governor hna descended from tho high horse he baa been riding, since a resolution has been introduced in Congress to investigate his aikiou in seizing railroad property and telegraph lines engaged in inter-State commerce, and with armed force and establishing a censorship of tho drily aud weekly press of the country, and prohibiting the transmission of news tlispatchea to the newspapers, and All that talk about former office hold-la s under Cleveland having to stand back this time to give the other fellows a chance, seema to have been to scare tho old papsuckers off and not really intended for tho president's rule of faith and practice. A large number of them have been appointed, and now comes ex-Public Printer Benedict to get his "fat take" again. Tho exs., who thought tho story true about them not being wanted again, are kicking themgelves for giving up so quickly for another chance lo live off of Uncle Sara. Theiie iu very little Bbutimeutal non- J HeuBO in England and a criminal, whethor male or female, usually gets his deserts. Mrs. Walber, 53, was hung at Liverpool Monday, for tho murder of her husband. She admitted that she brained him with a trace chain, after keeping him confined i i a garret, chained and padlocked Tnere were no unusual demonstration, tho woman meeting death in a rather unconcerned or dazed Bort of a way. Persistence is a well developed trait on Mr. Cleveland's character. He nominated O. U. J. Taylor, a Kansas negro, fur.Minister to Bolivia but the Senate rejected it; and now ho names him for recorder of deeds of the District of Columbia, tho fattest kind of a take. Fred Douglas held it for a number of years and it has almost gotten to be considered the especial prerogative of the colored brother. Tue Louisville Post Mr. Boyle Gill Boyle, announces that recently of the Danville Advocate, has been elected vice- president of that company and will attend to its business affairs. Mr. Boyle is thoroughly equipped for tho duties and his rural rooster friends are confident that he will be as much of a success in metropolitan as he was in country journalism. The new senator from Georgia, Hon-Pat Walsh, ia an editor of much force and an orator of considerable renown. He is an Irishman by birth, n strong silver mar, and while ho was h red hot Cleveland man in 18S4, he opposed hia nomination in 1S02. Tue impotent majority in tho House has at lost succeeded in Bottling tho contested election case of O'Neill against Joy from St. Louis. Joy, republican, has been holding tho Beat but ho was ouHed by n vot of 1V5 to 28 Ths Louisville Commercial is gradually becomiug a typo machine set paper and tLo improvement is very marked. Tho bold faced and badly worn brevier did not comport with the contents of that newsy aud interesting sheet. r IV .1 U"M-- - Jl.'i- J ' V'W y " MM "M M," ..,. .nmi, m .1. ..M,.. yjjt This may bo au off year, and in point of fact 1b away off for tho domocratr, Rhode Island, which last year went democratic when it was no good to do bo, Binco a majority of all tho votes cast was necessary to an election, Wednesday went even more hell bent than Maino did for Gov. Kent, the republicans electing their candidate for governor by over 5,U00 pfurality, which is now only necessary to secure au election. The tail and horns also go with tho hide. The Legislature will be strongly republican, by securing a U. S. Senator of that If this kind of thing keeps up wo shall move to make it uuanimoii!), for the democrats are evidently not in it this year. Rkliqion and politics are never mixed without trouble and it wag aiain dem onstrated iu Kansas City Tuesday. Tho American Protective Association and tho C.itholicj came together in n bloody conllict in the race for mayor. More than 100 shots wore fired and when the smoke of battlo cleared away one man lav dead and several others in n dying condition. Au object of tho A. P. A. is to curtail tho influence of tho Catholics and prevent this country from becoming under tho rule of the papal government. Tiie Ohioiuns again showed their distrust of democracy Monday in their mil nicipal elections, electing thoir men in a very large majority of the cities. Thero wero five tickets in the field in Cincinnati, that lovely specimen of democracy, the Cincinnati Enquirer, supporting a ticket of its own against tho regular democratic nominees, and it was badly snowed under. Caldwell, tho republican nominee for mayor, was elected by nearly 7,000 plurality. Wiibn the trial of Henry Ward for nest hiding with Mrs. Tilton was iu progress, a lady asked a judge if he thought tho great preacher guilty. "Guilty of what, madam V" ino.uired tue judge and the matter was dropped. In discussing the Breckinridge-Pollard case, the ladies might remember this incident with profit. The Semi-Weekly Pantagraph is Richmond's latest contribution to journalism. As tho girl said in trying to excuse her quire by what law or authority such acts Mtj u ifJ ft very ,itt,B 0lU fl0 ,t Cftn be have been committed, and whether the liws of the United States have been vio lated. Tho company, which tendered i;s resignation rather than attempt to en-fore the offensivo dispensary law, caught it in a proclamation from tho governor, who refused to accept it, but discharged them in disgrace. If Gov. Tilman is re sponsible for tho law ho deserves all the execration ho is receiving but if hois not and is only attempting to enforce tho law as he finds it, he is only doing a plain duty, but he ought to call the legis litture together to repeal it. aaid of the Pmitagraph, but if it keeps up as it has started it is bound to grow. The names of T. C. AdamB, Milo Shanks and 0. O. Groves appear as editors of tho new venture. It has been proven in the trial that Breckinridge gave Mies Pollard notes and then allowed them to go to protest Could anything be meaner? It seems that all tho notes, tho silvery ones and all, of tho defendant aro worse than baso counterfeits. Dr. who thought he had discovered tho "elixir of life,'' wnich would prolong indefinitely the days on earth of nil who partook, was evidently mistaken, or he didn't take his own medicine. He died at Paris, France, Monday. NEWSY NOTES. Ex-Gov. J. R. Hindman ia spoken of as a candidate for attorney general. Tho U. S. Court at Knoxvillc, ha ordered the sale of tho E.
