following the introduction of an instru

the death of the foetus and subsequent

After Arthur.
New YokkV October 7. A boy
about 18 years old called at police
headquarters this morning and asked
for a permit to carry a pistol. When
asked what ho wanted to carry a pistol
for he replied, to shoot President Ar
thur. He was taken to the Jefferson
market court, when he seemed much
exciUd. In answer to questions from
the court he said his name was Wm.
Martin, and that he lived at101 East

tnur used to live in me sume uuuso

Systematic stealing.
San Francisco, ucc. &. xucson
dispatch says: The Star publishes the
repoTt of the grand jury, repeating that
the Cibicu prisoners now in jail lure
are innocent of any crime and that the
I guilty Indians were long ago permitted
to escape through the connivance of
Agent Tiffany. That officer, it appears
i from evidence given the grand jury
not only arranged to have the guilty
Indians get away, Dut purposely ar
rested the innocent Indians and had
them in confinement for months to
rover the flieht of the murderers. That
it was no mistake, but a conspiracy on
I the part of the agent, is shown by the
evidence of the Indians to-day. to whom
Tiffany revealed his plan, and told
them that this waa the only way to
save the others from being hung or
shot. The Indians also testified to a
regular system of stealing Indian goods
by Tinany, witn ine mercnama oi
Globe, Maxy and other points. Inves
tigation reveals a condition or grand
peculation and dishonesty that exceeds
j anything of the kind ever known on
the frontier.
Boh Ford Is scared.
New York. Oct. 7. Charlie and
Bob Ford, the slayers of Jesse James
having finished their engagement at
the Broadway museum, leave to-night
for Kansas City to stand trial for par
ticipating in the murder of Wood Hite
one of James's cañar, who lost his life
mysteriously at the house of the Fords
father early last winter. In con
versation to-night Bob Ford said :
"Well,' I see James has come in and
surrendered. . Now, I am anxious to
see what Gov. Crittenden will do. He
promised as much as that he would
never pardon Frank. If he does then
I think they had belter lock Frank or
me up for this world Is not big enough
foius bath. If we are left at large one
of us must be surely . killed. Frank
will never irive un till he kills me and
I do not propse to die at anv hands
, . ".
I stand any chence to gtit first Shot.
Ilia desire to reform is all stuff,
he
simulv wants to set in because he is
afraid to stand out, or perhaps he
thinks it the easiest way to get out at
once. He is a nice penitent, and it
would be a nice state of affairs to
turn him loose to go gunning after me
The young man is evidently much ag
itated at the prospect.
for. About James
Kansas City, October 7. At Inde
pendence to-day a number of old
friends were admitted to the jail to
talk with Frank James. He seemed
in excellent spirits, and expressed en
tire confidence in his ability to clear
himself against any charges that may
be brought against him. His wife
isited him during the morning. At
the hotel yesterday he wrote upon the
register, Frank James, wife and child,
remarking it was the first time he had
signed his real name in sixteen years.
There were a number of bidders for
the autograph, but the landlord de
clined to permit the register to be cnt.
James' appearance strongly indicates
the rapid approach of consumption, al
though he asserts he is iu good
health. It is - evident that l.e
is considerably broken physically if not
in spirit. It is the general opinion that
he confidentially expected to be ad
mitted to bail yesterday ,and there is no
doubt that he could give bonds in any
amount demanded. The regular term
of the criminal court occurs in Novem
ber, but it is thought that Judge
White will give a hearing to the ap
plication for bail before that time.
There is a great difference of opinion
as to the probability of sufficient evi
dence being obtained to convict him of
the charges pretened in this county.
Opinions are also greatly at variance
as to the chances for pardon in case of
conviction. Major Edwards states posi
tively that James had encouragement
farther than that offered in the letter
from Governor Crittenden, published
yesterday.

Mexican Exchange.
New York, Oct 7. The Herald
says : The prospect or estaDiisning a
Mexican Exchange in this city, is re
ceiving considerable attention from
the business men. The progreses of
railroad building in Mexico brings
nearer every day mercantile centers of
the United States, to those of that
country, and it is felt that preparations
for a great increase of international
credit that must result from this open-
ins-, should now be decided on. Al
ready business in this dirtection has
received a strong impetus.

the current quarter will be longer than
euer before. In the table the value of
lead is estimated at five cents a pound,
and the silver at $1.14 an ounce. The
estimate of the silver may be a little
high, but that of the lend is corre
spondingly low, so its average ia as
near to exact correctness as can be ob
tained. The product for the first two
quarters of the year was in currency
value $817.918. making the total for
the three quarters 812,437,065.40,
nearly eaual to the full product of

in the items of other shipments in the
table.

Washington, Oct. 7. McLean, the
nominee of the combined opposition to
the bourbon Democrats for governor of
South Carolina, has just arrived. He
says he has had a lively time with the
bourbon red-shirts during the canvass.
He was nominated by the anti-bourbon
combination, and by the Republicans a
week later. For some daya he was
treated well while speaking, but at
Winnesboro, on the 25th of September,
he heard Thompson, the bourbon can
didate for governor, had, on the 18th,
while addressing the people publicly.
said:
"You remember the reception you
gave Taft here in 1880, Well, when
McLean comts on the 25th, give him
the same kind, or a worse one "
This was read with loud shouts of,
"We will." It will be remembered
Taft was a Republican and was mob
bed at Winnesboro, his meeting broken
up and he personally assaulted so viol
ently that he would prooaoiy nave Deen
killed if some of the leading citizens
had not interferred to protect him.
The Democratic county chairman tried
to protect Mr. McLane but drunken
aroused red shirts followed him from
the train to the courthouse, where they
filled the hall and personally assaulted
the candidate, tearing his clothes, kick
ing and violently abuseing him, and
when he was finally pushed into a
private parlor, they brutally attacked
one of his white friends.
The colored people remained quiet
during the meeting. Only two Bour
bon papers have disapproved of . the
Hffair. and the leading ones justify it.
He afterwards spoke in several places,
but had to give up one engagement,
Mayor Chester telegraphing ne would
be unable to preserve peace. McLean
is quite confident of success, and de
clares he will be governor if be is
elected, even if he has to appeal to the
national government.
A Readjus ter Arrested.
Richmond, Va, Oct. 7. Last night
during the progress of the Readjuster
mass meeting jn this city, a recounter
occurred between Gen. Preston Wise
and John Smith, the Readjuster candi
date for Congress from this district, in
which the latter struck Gen. Wise one
blow, when friends interfered. Subse
quently Smith addressed the meeting,
bitterly denouncing Geo. B. Wise, hi3
Democratic opponent for Congress.
The latter was heard to make violent
threats against Smith, whereupon a
warrant was sworn out for his arrest.
He waa taken into custody and bailed
for appearance before the police court.

Subject for Ridicule.
New York, October 7. Journals
unanimously condemn and ridicule the
long, rambling letter of acceptance of
B. Piatt Carpenter, the Republican
candidate for lieutenant governor,
which is printed to-day.
Union Pacific Stocks.
New York, October 7. A fierce
struggle has been going on over the
Union Pacific since last Thursday, al
most entirely monopolizing the atten
tiou of the street, thrusting Louisville
and Nashville into the background for
the moment. On that day over ninety
thousand snares of Union Pacific were
bought and sold. Gould, Vanderbilt
and others of the largest holders of the
stock sold out some time ago. Mr.
Bellden, owner of. the famous steam
yacht, Yosemite, bought while these
people were selling out. He is said
to have purchased forty-two thousand
shares from 1.15 up to 1.30, the high
est or nearly the highest point of pur
chase. Gould and Bellden are not
friends. A transaction which occurred
some years ago enabled Bellden to get
away with a Gould deal and Gould
money, and it waa said on the occasion
that at least Gould waa the victim of
something very like a confidence game.
If there is any man who ought
to know the real value of Union
icific stock it is Gould, and it appears
to have steadily shot from 130 down,
and his weight pressing upon it, lias
had the effeit of spo'.ting Mr. BeHden's
market, so ho has never Uen al io to
get out at a profit. In tlu nhing of (he
street he has got left; but the time to
deliver the most telling blows did not
occur until a couple of weeks ago.
Stock was then selling at bet tv en 114
and-115, and the company was quietly
negotiating a loan for $3,000,000. The
fact was published to the street, and
the effect of the disclosure was very
bad. It is acknowledged to have caused
negotiations to fallthrougb,and the cry
was started against the Union Pacific
company. In the scare it was con-
itantly borrowing money, which seem
ed to frighten the holders of stock
everywhere. Even bonds of the
company have been very freely
thrown over by investors, and have
shown a quiet decline. Most damaging
allegations have been made against its
credit, and Gould has openly declared
that the road would soon be in the
hands of its bondholders.
ACCIDENTS.

Star Rout Bribery Cases.
WAsniNGTO v, October 7. Attorney
General Brewster is expected here
Tuesday, when proceedings will be in
augurated and pushed vigorously in
the Star Route bribing cases. Dis'.rict
Attorney Corkhill finished the pielim
inary work and all the papers that he
had have been sent to the deparment
of justice for the use of the attorney
general. The absence of the parties
supposed to be implicated in the ap
proaches made to jurors in the inter
est of the defence is the cause of con
siderable comment. The opinion is
prevalent in Washington that it is at
. m s.
present too warm ior tueir comiori.
Officials at the department of justice
think the government will have no
trouble in convicting several would-be
jury fixers, as evidence tanen uerore
District Attorney Corkhill is said to
almost convincing. Star Route men
exibit great uneasiness ana mucu
anger over the fact that the depart
ment of justice decided to take a full
charge to the jury of bribery. The

organ, opens its abuse of the attorney
