Darrell, the pretty Chloago girl who la
spending the winter with Mr. and Mra.
James Armatrong at Center Hill, has
arouaed the people of the neighborhood,
and a word from the young girl would
pause the 1ncblng ot the tour young men
auapeoted of the outrage. Mtt, Darrell
was abducted on Ihuraday night last
while a party was la progress at the Arm
strong home. The girl went ta the rear
veranda about 10 o'clock to get a book she
had left there. That waa the last seen of
her until Sunday morning, when she was
found by searohers tied to a tree in a dense
thicket about four miles from Center
Hill, , ; .;
It waa feared she would die, but she re
gained eoneotousaese bonder. Mies Da
rail aaya when she went to the veranda
soma one threw a ahawl over her head
and the was borne away. She managed
to Iras her bead and scream when she was
knocked senseless. She knew no more
till she found herself tied to the tree.
Ovorcome by the horror of her situation
aha soon relapsed into nnoonsoiouaness
and waa thus found by the searchers.
Mies Darrell aays her abductors numbered
four and she thinks she recognised tbelr
Mr. and Mra Armstrong are confident
tho crime was committed by four young
men, whose addresses Mlas Darrell had
rejected. The girl came here from Chi
cago about two months ago and speedily
became popular. She waa much sought
by young men, and when her engagement
waa announoed to a Leesburg gentleman.
It la claimed, threats were made by her
four disappointed lovers that they would
get even. Reports from Center Hill say

about the Amerloan element In the Trans

Washixotoh, Feb. 25 Special.
Senator Allison Is now openly In tbe field
as a presidential candidate. There Is much
more In the Allison movement than ap
pears on tbe surface. The Iowa senator
has bee? so often spoken of for tbe Repub
lican nomination and haa cut so little fig
ure In convention that it has become a
sort of standing joke that he Is a promis
ing candidate. "Yes, he promises well,
but never pa us out," I have heard many
men say. But this year the oonditlons are
different. The field Is well split up, and
there is no great, commanding figure. Be
sides the Issues are different. This Is tbe
first presidential campaign la which the
silver question has been the predominating
factor. That it Is now the question of
question, every one admits. It is so in both
of the great parties, and both ore In trou
ble with it. It would be difficult to say
which Is in greater distress. The leaders
of both organizations fear there may be a
bolt from the national convention. All
are trying to find a safe ground which will
avert the threatened disaster.
Alllaon Openly la the Plcld.
This Is where Allison Is strong. He
occupies a middle ground and could stand
on almost any sort of a platform. While
his votes have nearly always been cart on
tbe side of what Is known as sound mon
ey, be has at the same time been consist
ently In favor of the largest possible use of
sliver. The sound money men do not
greatly distrust him. Some of t,em do,
but between him and an out and out free
sliver man there could be but one choloe.
The sliver men, too, while they would pre
fer one of their own Dumber, will be con
tent with him. If tbe Republican purty
gets Itself into such a position that It must
compromise In order to hold the two
wings together, Allison's position becomes
a promising one.
The friends of Senator Allison have
lately perfected In tliiscltyan organization
which is to lock a.'ter tho practical end of
the campaign. They have looked about
them and seen that Speaker Reed's inter
ests appear to be In the care of Senator
Quay, than whom there Is no more practi
cal or skillful politician. Mr. Piatt, wltb
more or less sincerity, Is looking after the
welfare of Governor Morton. Ex-Governor
McKlnley's Interests are receiving the
careful attention of a very bright and en
ergetic man, Mark Ilanna of Cleveland.
Though a plain, blunt business man and
fond of calling himself such, Mr. Ilanna
is about as smart an they make thoiu In
the political world. Ex-President Hani
son Is being' groomed by Colonel John C.
New of Indianapolis, and Colonel New
knew all about politics before most of the
men of today took tbeir first lessons In the
Ia Clarkaon's Band.
Why should we not have an organiza
tion, a headquarters, a man to watch
things, some one to send out to see tbe
right people at the right time, and the
money for all proper expenses? asked the
Allison men of themselves. Then they
came together with an intention to provide
Just such a machine. It is located bore in
Washington and will co-operate with that
prince of politicians and past master of tbe
art of working up publio opinion, James
S. Clarkson. In such bands tho Allison
movement ought to thrive. Already It is
attracting ranch attention in the west, and
I predict you will hear more of it before
the summer is over.
There Is a great deal of curiosity here as
to whether Mr. Allison intends to stand
upon a platform which was erected for him
by some of his admirers a few months ago.
They said Mr. Allison, if nominated and
elected president, would not veto any cur
rency measure that the congress might
pass. In this Allison waa to tako bl
stand upon tho theory that tho veto power
waa not Intended to be used by presidents
exoept In the case of hasty, or 111 consid
ered, or mistaken legislation; that It was
never Intended to bo interposed where the
peoplo themselves Lad had opportunity to
discuss the question and where the con
gress had boon elected on that Issue. That
would bo making t ho president greater and
more powerful than the people, something
which the founders of tbe republlo surely
did not contemplate It would bo making
him a sort of dictator.
Mr. Allison's friends argue that this Is
sound doctrine, wholly In accord with the
spirit of our Institutions. They say tbe
people ought to have the right to express
their will at the ballot box In the election
of representatives and senators, and that
the executive ought not have the power to
nullify that will when thus registered.
They contend that the veto power was
given t he president only with the idea that
now and then congress would du some
thing rash or hosty; that it would act upon
sudden passion or without full Informa
tion, and that In such Instances the veto
power was a chock and corrective, aud that
this la the scope of the power when rightly
Alllaoa a IUmetalllat.
Senator Allison, I understand, Is a great
believer in International bimetallism.
While abroad representing this country at
the Brussels conference he made n rareful
study of the currency question In Europe
and returned home convinced that some
day the world will restore silver to equal
rank wltb gold as a money metal. It Is
argued In Allison's behalf that his election
to tbe presidency would command much
respect abroad and tend to bring the ques
tion of International bimetallism to tba
front. The foreigners who favor this meth
od of solving a question which Is trou
bling the whole world would say that tbe
opportune time for action had come, and
the result would be a vigorous movement.
Personally Senator Allison 1.4 ono of the
most lovable men in Washington puhllo
Ufa. If lie has any enemies, probably be
does not know who they are. Always af
fable an courteous, approachable and un
affected, he haa the esteem and affection of
all who know him. It Is a great mistake
to suppose that Mr. Allison Is a man with
out strong convictions. Ho has docldod
opinions and expresses them frankly. In
debate ha ta frank and strong, and there
are few senators who oure to go against
Mr. Alllsoo Is a very poor man. Though
be has been In publio life practically all
of his manhood years, he has absolutely
nothing bat his salary.
