HARTFORD CITY, Ind., Nov. 2.?
The body of Edward Preston Sander- "
son. thirty-five years old, a farmer ''
who disappeared on October 22, was p
found in a pond in a gravel pit oil the p
outskirts of Ibis city. It was chained ir
md strapped to a rock, weighing sev- ?
snty-five pounds. Two bullet wounds a
were in the head, the first of which t)was
fatal. tc
Sanderson had trouble with his u
ol
vife, from whom he was separated,
lis wife's brothers. Otto and William ct
ffook, and his step-brother, Ernest r?
Sanderson, who had recently been in ft
iifflculty with him, applied to the w
heriff to-day for protection from h?
leighbors. who they feared, would
nob them. They were placed in jail
or safe keeping.
Sanderson was a poor man and
he theory that he was waylaid by
ighwaymen Is not favored.

the drama by Augustus Thomas,
author of "Alabama" and "In
Missouri." wilt "be one of the most notable
events of the dramatic season.
"Alabama" lias been adjudged by
mttuy comi>etent : critics to be the
, greatest drama of American authorship.
When it was produced, prophetic
folk declared that Mr. Thomas was
the senilis who would lay the foundation.
stone for the American drama.
Perhaps ho has done so. His "In
Missouri." tvhich fbuowed, was an excellent
play, and now comes "Arizona,"
which not one but every critic
in New-York and Chicago has united
in pronouncing "a better piay than
Alabama.'" "Arizona." as the name
would indicate, is a typically American
play. The scenes cud incidents
of it are laid about a frontier army
post and a neighboring cattle ranch.
This attraction has visited t{vis city
before and made a very pronounced
hit, and should be greeted by a crowded
house this year. No one need stayaway
on account of its being election
night as the full returns will be read
during the performance.

SAVED A RESIDENCE ON MORGANTOWN
AVENUE?AN EARLY
MORNING BLAZE.
At seven forty-five this morning the
department was called out to suppress
a blaze in a residence owned by
Dr. Boyers located on liorgantown
avenue and occupied by a Mrs. Stafford.
The fire originated in a defective
flue in the basement and for a fewminutes
the house was threatened
with destruction, but the timely arrival
of the department and the use
of a few cans of chemicals saved the 1
place.
Dan, the new chemical wagon
horse, behaved splendidly on the run
and gets into harness fast. Old Tom '
wasn't altogether forgotten this time,. '
getting there a little late with the old
Palitine wagon.

Card From VV. B. Cornweil.
Fairmont. W. Va? Nov. 1. 1904. '
Editors West Virginian:
In yesterday's paper you state edi- (
torially to the "farmers" that, the (
Democratic candidate for governor is
attorney for the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad Company.
In this you are mistaken. John J. ^
Cornweil is a member of the law firm .
of Zimmerman & Cornweil, and has .
been for about five years. This firm
is not and never has been attorney f
for the Baltimore and Ohio R. R. ft .
is not nor never has been attorney for j
any railroad corporation.
John J. Cornwell is not now, nor ^
aever has in any way, eitlier directly (
ar indirectly, been connected as at:orney
or otherwise with any railroad c
lompany. }
Further, the records of his county
will show that the only railroad cases t
n which he or his Arm have been o
smployed, they appeared against the
ailroad company.
In the beginning of this campaign v
ron said that the fact that he was a ^
ioor man was in your judgment a so- ^
ious objection to him for governor.
lou now seek to make it appear that (|
le is representation of corporate ^
realth. Why can't you be fair? Misepresentation
is not argument.
Will you kindly give space to this Istter?
"
Yours respectfully, .
W. B. CORNWELL.
The West Virginian will not knowigly
do any one an injustice, and If
has done.this in the case of the
lemoeratic candidate for governor it
: certainly sorry. However, in stattg
that he is attorney for the B. and
. R. R.. we never dreamed of such
thing until told that he was such "1
y a gentleman we know to be an at- u!
>rney for that corporation. Believing P"
lat rxe Knew what be was talking er
jout we made the statement above 'n
implained of. We are unable> to co
lach or communicate with our inirmant
to-day, therefore in view of 101
hat Mr. W. B. Cornwell says he may wi
tve been mistaken, hence will give de
e gentleman on trial?Mr. John J. SP
ornwell?the benefit of the doubt and wc
smiss the case. " fo<

Red. In 1894 he predicted Democratic '
victory in Indiana, until the night be- !
fore the election, and the Repubil- 1
cans carried Indiana the ntalt day by '
14,po0 plurality. Jifst before the Presidential
election of 1S9C Mr. Taggtart 1
again entered the field of prophecy. '
nnd on October 22 he wrote a card c
for the Indianapolis News, which- ap- r
peared in that paper over his own sig- '
nature. Hero Is what he said:
"'I desire to say that Indiana never 1
looked brighter for a Democratic vtc? ij
tory than it. does at this time, and
I feel sure from the reports received 11
from all parts of the State that the l'
electoral and State tickets will both a
be successful.' l)
"Both tickets were defeated by '
something liko 18,000 majority. Then
again in October 1899, Mr. Taggart.
went to New York to raise money for "
the Indiana campaign, and on the. day v
on which he rotumed to Indianapolis s
the New York Sun quoted him as fol- fl
lows: - '
" 'I am going back to Indiana to- ^
night, my friends. We aro going to t(
carry Indiana. We are going to carry
the Union. We are, going to elect
Bryan." n
Taggart's Forecast In 1900.
"November 8. 1900. Mr. Taggart n
wrote another communication, this 81
time for the Indianapolis Sentinel, in cl
which he said;with ail the confidence b(
in the world: C
"'It' is now but three days until M
election, and ! have every belief and bl
Confidence that the loyalty and enthusiasm
of the Indiana Democracy P1
and their liberty-loving allies-are such
that Indiana will cast its electoral P1
rote for Bryan and Stevenson, and b!
that. the entire State ticket , will be
elected by a handsome majority. I I1
base my predictions upon tile broken al
promises of the Republican party in 'Ml
189.6, and the attitude of the present c,i
national administration in its tendency
toward militarism and imperialism
and the protection of trusts and ar
monopolies. While the Republican .
tarty fooled tlio people in 1896 on: the s?
mestion of prosperity, it is impossible &
:o do so again.' 81
"That was Taggart's opinion, oxtressed
as his deliberate conviction re
in three days before the election of 011
1900- On the evening of that day he ev
ntroduced a speaker at a meeting rI)
n Indianapolis with these words: bi:
" 'I want to say that the prospects pa
or Democratic success were never t:x
irighter than they are now. I have Iis
>een in touch with Chairman Martin, *T
if the State committee, and when the ln;
lolls close Tuesday, Indiana will again W
le in the Democratic column.' thi
"There has not been a national or hc:
itate election In the last fourteen mc
ears in which the genial Tom has 801
int. indulged In the same kind, of "a
nlk, and the Democrats have gone ""
n losing their money, betting; on the th<
ecu racy of his predictions all this s!<i
Ime. X don't '.believe the Democrats " '
rill come anywhere near carrying In- me
iana. and I don't believe that Tom
links so either. If he does, he Is as
artly deceived now as his own newsaper
utterances prove him to have g
sen on past occasions." ani
