An Indiana Mob.
IxDUNsror.is, Ind., January 15.—The
Daily News’ special from Bloomington,
Ind., says: A desperate effort was made
here last night to mob Epps, the negro
who so cruelly murdered James Dobson
a few nights ago, by the vigilants, but
the bravery of the Sheriff and his depu
ties kept the excited crowd at bay. All
day people collected from the neighbor
hood of Salisbury, and by 4 o’clock it
was evident that to leave Epps in re
overnight was almost certain death.
So, preparations were at once made to
remove him to Vincennes for safe-keep
ing. Just at dusk a buggy drove hur
riedly up to the rear of the jail. In an
instant it was surrounded by the crowd.
Soon the Sheriff'appeared with a cocked
revolver in bis hand, and stated he
would shoot the first man who inter
fered. In a moment’s time Epps was in
a buggy and disappearing us fast as the
horses could take him. The crowd was
so infuriated that horses were secured
and several men started at once. But as
there were several different roads, they
lost the track and soon returned. By
midnight the streets were tilled with ex
cited people, anti another posse started
in hot pursuit to overtake the prisoner.
But at 1 o’clock nothing has been heard,
and Epps is now at Vincennes.

Cleveland, 0., January 15.—At an
early hour yesterday morning a large
farm-house near Waynesburg, Stark
County, Ohio, caught lire. Miss Jennie
Molihenny, the owner of the place, was,
with the exception of two servants, the
only occupant of the house. One of the
servants discovered the flumes and
awoke Miss Molihenny, who rushed
from the house in her bare. feet. The
young lady stood on the icy platform
near the well and pumped water for 20
minutes. Then, Seeing that help was
needed, she dashed aw ay through the
snow a quarter of a mile to the nearest
bouse. When she had given the alarm
she ran bnck. The temperature was 12
degrees below zero,and Miss Mcllbenny
was near paralyzed with cold. Her bare
feet and limbs were badly frozen, and it
was with the utmost difficulty that the
attending pliyHicinn prevented the ne
cessity ot amputation. The lady is now
in a critical condition.
Boston, January 15.—0 n the stock
board to-day telephone stocks declined,
owing to the action taken in Washing
ton. The result of the Washington
movement will not, in the opinion of the
Bell people, have much, if any, influence
upon the tinancialoperationsof thecom
pauy, yet the decision sent Bell stock
from 1,2 down to 101, with 160 bid. A
rally occurred about noon, when sales
were made at 163. The New England
telephone stock declined from 36} to 34,
but afterward rallied to 35.

For the Orphans and Helpless by Dr.
'1 he following sermon was delivered
by Rabbi Lewinthal this morning at the
Temple Beth-EI:
Ye shall not afflict any widow, or tuilu rli •-
child. II then afflict them in anywise and
they cry at all unto me. I will surely hear
their cry. ’ Exodus xxll; 21, —.
There is nothing which more clearly
stamps the Bible as Divine than the
compassion and solicitude it incalculates
for the poor, the wretched and forsaken.
The sympathies of the world are ever
with the strong, the prosperous ami the
gifted; the tender mercies of God Al
mighty are upon the weak, the miser
able, and the wounded. He is witli
those that are of a contrite and bumble
spirit to revive the spirit of the low I,’
and to quicken the heart of the contrite.
It is this same loving pity which we are
exhorted to exhibit toward those that
are desolate and helpless. The very
fact Hint they are weak and without de
fense is to constitute their most powei
fill claim upon our active kindness.
There are some philosophers who tell
us that this feeling of compassion is in
born within us. Does history warrant
this assumption? Wo are accustomed
to look upon the edict of Pharaoh, llint
every new born son of the Israelii, s
should be cast into the river, as one < f
the most inhuman decrees that was ev, r
issued. Are you aware that a similar
practice prevailed, to the very largest
extent, among the nations of antiquity?
Infanticide is now regarded with abhor
rence; it is justly punished as murder;
In former days it was not even looked
upon as a disgrace. Greece and Rome
were the most gifted and greatest of an
cient euipires. Their grandeur and the r
wisdom did not save them from commit
ing this atrocity. In Sparta the law di
rected that when a child was born lbs
lather was to carry it to an appointed
place to be inspected by the eiders <4
tliecominunity. ifthey perceived that Its
limbs were straight and its appearance
healthful they returned it to its parents
to be reared; otherwise it was thrown
into a deep cavern at the foot of the
mountain Taygetus. In the other Gre
cian republics a similar disregard of in
fant life was shown. If the infant was
sickly, it was instantly killed; If not. the
father was only taken to see it on the
ninth day. and if, on seeing it. he stooped
down and took it into his arms, it was
brought up. But if he did not do this,
the little Greek child was exposed in the
open air upon some hillside and there
left to perish by starvation, unless some
one saved its life for the purpose of rear
ing it for a career of slavery or infamy.
It was the same in Rome rsocomplete
ly had luxury eaten away the natural
instincts in one class; so deep and de
grading was the misery in another, that
parents continually exposed and aban
doned their children. Nay, the noblest
of Romans—consuls, censors and prae
tors — were guilty of this hideous crime.
You have often beard the famous line
quoted with approbation : “lam a man,
and nothing that concerns mankind is
foreign to my feelings.” When these
words were first spoken in the Roman
theatre they evoked the loudest applause.
This apothegm is uttered by I lie very
father who had rebuked his wife for her
foolish weakness in exposing rather than
killing their female babe. And this out
rage of child murder still exists. How
many mothers flung their babes into the
floods of the Ganges until India cam<*
under English rule? In China, in spite
of all her learning and the thin veneerof
her outward polish, this practice still
prevails to a frightful extent. A few
y ears ago a French nobleman found sev
en dead children during a short morn
ing’s walk in the environs of Canton.
Nay, how have modern philoso
phers acted in this respect? Rous
seau, the eloquent, the impassioned
who penned so brilliant a work
or, education, Rousseau fell no
pity for bis own children, their
weakness did not touch his heart. Un
willing to incur the trouble of training
and the expense of maintaining them,
he was guilty of the scandalous aet of
abandoning every one of them to the
public charity of a foundling hospital.
Contrast within famous actions such
as these the command enacted in our
text: '•ye shall not afflict any widow or
fatherless child. If thou afflict them in
any wise, and they cry at all unto Me, I
will surely hear their cry.” Can any
language more emphatically and forci
bly express the tender mercy of the
eternal? His love made the sorrows of
those who had lost their natural protec
tor. His own. They are His clients in
the Roman sense of the word. He is
their great patron. He identifies him
self with their interests. He will up
hold their cause. The words that fol
low seem harsh and severe, but there
are times when harshness and severity
constitute the truest tenderness. “And
my wrath shall wax hot. and 1 will kill
you with the sword, and your wives
shall be widows and your children fath
erless.” What more effectual warning
could be addressed to the Israelites
than the threat that their lack of mercy
would recoil upon those dearest to them?
Yet, even though they sinned. God’s
tenderness would be extended to those
they left behind. Israel incurred the
penalty menaced in these words. One
of the main causes which brought upon
them the sword of Nebuchadnezzar was
that they did violence to the stranger,
the fatherless and the widow. But
when the desolation and destruction
were to come upon them when many a
husband and father were doomed to fall
by the sword, the Lord repeated His
gracious promise by the mouth of the
Prophet Jeremiah: “Leave lliy father
less children to me, 1 will keep them
alive, and let thy widows trust
in me.” Nor did our heaven
inspired teacher content himself with
vague exhortations and general admo
nitions. He did not leave the fate of the
forsaken to the chance sympathy or mo
mentary humors of individuals. He
gave positive enactments which were to
secure for the orphan a regular and cer
tain competence. The nation at large
was called upon to provide for their
wants. At every festival, at the gather
ing of the harvest, at the beating of the
olive trees, at the gathering of the
grape of the vineyard, when giving of
the tithes of the w'ine, the corn and the
oil, when the firstlings of the herds and
of the flocks, and the first fruits of the
land were to be devoted to the Lord, the
w idow and the orphan were to be lov
ingly remembered. However destitute
the orphans had been left, they were to
be shielded from hunger and privation.
Their defenseless state, instead of en
couraging, was to prove the safeguard
against oppression, fraud and injustice.
“Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of
the fatherless; thou shalt not take the
raiment of the fatherless to pledge.”
And this selfsame spirit pervades the
whole of the Bible. When suffering Job
looks back upon his past life and exam
ines lus past career, anxious as to what
transgression could have entailed upon
him heaven’s wrath, lie inquires. “Have
I eaten a morsel by myself alone, ami
the fatherless hath not eaten thereof?
for from my youth he was brought up
with me. llave 1 lifted up my hand
against the fatherless when I saw my
help In the gate (friends and supporters
who would uphold me in the court of
justice ?)”
These injunctions and such examples
made a deep impression on Judaism, so
that loving regard for those who have
lost their natural protectors has ever
been a prominent trait In the Jewish
character. 1 need not refer nt length to
a fact which is well-known to the most
of you. For 31 years has the Jew
ish* Widows’ and Orphans' Homi
in the City of New Orleans,
proviued for those who in early
youth have been deprived of their
natural protectors. At present 144
children are housed, fed. clothed an 1
educated in Hie institution, and trained
to earn hereafter their subsistence.
This Institution lias but a few days ago
held its anniversary festival; the Board
of Directors have issued their uppeal
and await its result with much anxietv.
Although this orphan asylum is ad
ministered with ttie greatest po-sibie
economy, all the officers serving with
out compensation, yet tile expenditures
last year reached the sum of $15,163.27,
and tor the purpose of maintaining the
institution an annual appeal is made
and the Israelites of New Orleans gen
erally contribute more than half for the
maintenance of the institution.
1 doubt not that those among us who
have always contributed to its mail -
tenance in former years, and who have
but lately liberally subscribed for the
erection of a new building (the present
building being entirely too small) will
again do so witn an unstinted hand.
Ihe amounts I ask for are small and
within the reach o: every one.
When Ilie sanctuary stood in Jerusa
lem. t he emossnries were sent on the first
day of Adar to ml the tow ns in Judea,
to remind anil to exhort every Israelite
to contribute his half shekel to the ser
vice of the Temple. And from the
money thus raised Hie sacrifices were
brought from the first of the succeeding
Nissan. Just so with lhe Jew ish Widows
and Orphans Home in the city of New
Orleans. On the Sth day of January of
each year the institution bolds its anni
versary celebration, and contributions
for its maintenance tor the ensuing year
are solicited
In behalf of these orphans do I appeal
to you. These children turn their inno
cent appealing bices, their eyes full of
tears unto us, saying: “Since God has
taken fattier and mother from us,
will you not be unto us even
as fathers and mothers? And the Lord
seconds their appeal. He says unto
those who are childless: “if you will
rear, or help to rear, an orphan boy or
an orphan girl.it will be accounted unto
you even as though you have been ti e
parent of that child.” Think what
potentiality of goodness there may be in
one infant. How great the blessing
which one child can bling unto the
world, unto Judaism. Esther was nil
orphan, she bad neither father n< r
mother; and when her father and
mother were dead, hercousin, Mordecai,
took her for his own daughter. Whnt
would have become of Israel in the dark
season of persecution bad not Mordecai
lovingly brought her up and kindled in
her heart burning love for her people ?
My dear friends, it it pleased the Lord
to call you away from earth, and you
would be obliged to leave your children
unprovided for, and your kinsmen and
kinswomen would take your desolate,
orphaned little ones into their bouse and
shelter them, and train them and imbue
them with love of their ancestral faith,
would not then your purified soul pray
to God in heaven to bless and to proti < t
those that had not left <4l their
.kindness to the living and to the dead?
Can you not believe that the departed
parents of these fatherless boys and girls
pray to God for those who are the bene
factors of the desolate? Will you refuse
to believe that God in bis mercy will
hearken to these prayers. He hath said:
“Ye ahnll not afflict the fatherless child.”
He has vouchsafed his promise. “Take
these children and nurse them forme,
and I will give thee thy wages.”
Republicans in Caucus.
Washington. January 15.—Republi
can Senators met in caucus at 10:30 this
morning and adjourned at half past I
o'clock. Their purpose was to compare
views with regard to the right of the
Senate to ask information as to the
('resident’s reasons for making removals
from office. The fact was stated that
many of the inquiries addressed to the
heads of departments by the Chairman
of Committees remain unanswered up
to this time, and indicates the purpose
to refuse to give this information. No
formal proposition was made, and no
action taken, while; a wide variety of
opinions found expression witli regard
to the propriety of raising a formal Issue
wi'h the administration at present upon
this question. A majority were of the
opinion that should the information
sought not ultimately be forthcoming,
the duty of the Republicans will, injus
tice to the men suspended or removed
for supposed caused, be to take some
formal action in the -enate to secure the
information, or an avowal by the Presi
dent that he will not give bis reasons for
making the removals. There was unan
imous concurrence in the opinion that
the removed officials have a right to
know whether they were removed for
political reasons or maladministration of
their trusts, and that it is the Senators’
duty to secure this information if possi

London, January 15.—An Irish high

nothing is to be gained by playing on

my Monday and Saturday receipts were
correspondingly diminished. Before the
inauguration of Sunday performances
Monday and Saturday evenings were al

are apt to fall to $360 Monday. Then,
theater-goers who used to pack the

really good programme. The two Bur
tons. John and Lottie, are clever per

is a marvel. One of bis best tricks is as
follows : He walks among the audience
with a paper of needles, giving about 24
to various people. He then asks each
one who has received u needle to put it
in bis (Yasso's) mouth, lie coming for
that purpose. Each of these lie appar
ently swallows, and returning to the
stage, lie gets a piece of thread and once
more walks around the spectators.
While doing so he pulls each needle out
of bis mouth separately until all of them
are perfectly threaded.

A Mormon Scheme.
Chicago. January 15.-Concerning a
petition of the Mormon colony nt I’ima,
Arizona, to the territorial government
for arms and ammunition to defend
themselves against the Apaches, a special
from Tucson. Arizona, says : It is not
known what action Governor Zulick will
take in the matter, but many suspicious
circumstances have recently come to
light which Indicate that the Mormon
colony has long been secretly encourag
ing the murderous Apaches' by supply
ing them with powder and trading them
guns in exchange for stolen horses,
which the Mormons sell in Mexico. It
is also stated that the Mormons of Pima
were in league with Geronimo's band,
and that the host Ues were on most
friendly terms with the Mormons. The
Indian scouts state the Mormons are
getting ready to abandon the Pima col
ony and move over into Sonora. That in
view of this, they were buying all the
stolen horses and cattle ’ that were
brought to them, either by renegade In
dians or thieving white men. It has
been anticipated for several weeks that
the Apaches are running short of ammu
nition, and it is almost certain that they
are seeking to obtain a fresh supply
through their Mormon allies. 'The Pima
colony numbers some 3200 Mormons,
most of whom are polygamists. The
Edmunds law has not yet been enforced
among them, and they live in great
dread of its execution.
