He Attempts to run a Little Po lygaimous Institution On His own Hook and is Gently Placed in Durance Vile. The Mysterious Death of a Heal ing Medium. The Oneida Comnnmunity Outdone. BosTos, Sept. 11.-There is a case in the superior court at Dedhain, which for dis gusting practices, so far as disclosed, rivals the famous Oneida Community. Jackson L. Evaais and Mrs. Catharine B. Cobb are charged with polygamy, and Miss Katie L. Whitney with immoral ccnduct. These same parties created great interest by the i practice of immorality in the name of spiritual power. Evans came to Wren thaw in 1879 and conducted a religious meeting on the Brigham Young basis. The prisoncr pleaded "not guilty" and ap pered unconcerned. Miss Whitney had a babe in her arms. :She is slender, dark complexioned. and about 23 years of age. Mrs. Cobb is about the same age, but with a rosy complixion andI a well developed tlgure. Evans is about 45, of forbidding aspect and anything but an Adonis in ap pearance. As he pleaded '"not guilty" he crossed his arms over his breast and as sumed an air of injured innocence. The i principal witness was Mr. Cobb, the bus band. who testilled that Evans came to his house and held meetings there. Evans was accustomed to hug and kiss all women and justified it upon the ground that it was l necessary for spiritual communion. Miss Whitney is a niece of witness, and he had seen her with Evans. HIe did not think much about it at the time, as he was full of religion, but ti, al'y left his house and wife, who coutinued to live with Evans. lMiss Whitney had two children at Wren tham, and one at Dedham. These relations bctween Evans and the women continued until their arrest. Evans told them that the conditions of spiritual life demanded a demonstration of a:ffection, and he could 4 not hellp it. These are only samples of the many converts to the new religion. The jury returned( a verdict of guilty against the prisoners. Evains was sentenced to three years in the house of correction.

CuicA.co, Sept. 11.-A startling rumor was afloat to-day that lady had died in a Sotith side doctor's office, while being de veloped into a spiritualistic healing medi um. An investigation showed that the lady was 3Irs. Itiley L. Nichols, fifty-one years of age, who camne to this city from Chatfleld, Minn., and that the doctor was C. R. Sykes, a catarrh specialist. The story runs that Sunday afternoon Mrs. Nichols left the home of her daughter to attend a meeting of spiritualits at the house of MDrs. McCracken, a friend. She is de scribed as having been a very estimable and intelligent lady. but had been con vinced by her spiritualistic friends that slhe was poses~ecd ot ilie powers of a mlediuim, and that ~he could become a great hlealing medium thriigh thie cfforts of a "devel oper." I)r, Sykes was reprented as capa ble of developing this latent power. It is said that Mrs. Nichols told her friends that her lpowers were being developed, and itis said that she was at the doctor's office Sun day for that iurpose-thllat the doctor mes iaerized her, and when the proper time ar rived she failed to pass out of the trance and died, the only witnesses being Dr. Sykes and an assistant. It wasalso said that the body was removed under cover ol the night, and every effort made to keep the actual cause of the death hidden. The origin of these rumors .was traced to the daughter of the deceased, who had said that she had been so told by the doctor. The next day, however, the daughter de nied the fi'rst story, and said her mother had died of heart disease. Both the doctor and daughter to-day tell conflicting and contradictory stories as to the cause of death, and altogether considerable mystery invests the case.
