VOL. XX XT NO. 23. INDIANAPOLIS, WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 1889. ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR. A TOUGH COUNTERFEITER. HIS BRUSH WITH UNCLE SAM'S MEN. Major Carter Tells of the Dayton Fight How Jim GayoB, the Chlf Criminal, Kicaped The Inaiaal Career of Old 3Ua Driggs. Maj. Carter of the government secret eervice returned Saturday from Dayton, O., where ha had spent several days with rther officers in ferreting out and arrest ing a gang of counterfeiters. The incident rf the fight, which resulted in the minding of one of the officers and ono of tho counterfeiters, was pub lished in The Sfntinel at the time, hut Maj. Carter adds some interesting features to it "I was never more disappointed with an expedition in my lifo," said he. ''The very man whom we were after and the man for whom we had been working for mouths was the only ouo to escape. It wa3 JimGnvon, who lias the plates from which the spurious ten-dollar tills wero made. He is the only man in the world who knows where they are, and hut for a little hard luck, and per haps a little bad management, we would have captured hirnby this time and would have had the plates. Gtiyon is a desper ado and is about as smooth as you ever read of. He was a member of the gan? which operated in Illinois eight years ago. r.veryone but him was captured and sent to the penitentiary. Tho main thing we were after at that time was the plates, nd finally wo induced ono of the men under sentence to tell us whero they wero concealed. It was in an island in the Mississippi liver, and along with them was 5n2,(XK in counterfeit monev. Cut when we came to look, for them thev were gone. Guyon had stolen them. Ilo was then compara tively unknown tons. We heard nothing rf him until about a year ao, when the bad bills began to show up once more. IIö was engaged in making them again, just as bo will now begin to do again fliortly, in all probability. No gov ernment ollicer ever saw Guyon until a few days ago. We then found he was iu Cincinnati, trying to hll some of his monev. Ho had agents workinz with him and negotiating for pome of his money, and llnally one of these made aa agreement to meet him at the road house, run bv old man lriggn, in J'ayton, and bu a large amonnt of it, agreeing to pay him 27$ cents on the dol lar. I rode on the train from Cincinnati to Dayton with Guyon on Wednesday right" lie is a man of medium tize, with a beard which would be black If it wero not sunburned, that reaches half way down his waist His hair is black, but be has a keen, gray eye. He has large rheek'bones, but his head tapers notice ably both toward the forehead and chin. He is a truart one, undoubtedly, and hails nriginallv from Arkansas; is a printer by trade and a fine plate worker. "Why didn't I arrest him? Well, it was" because ' we bad made different plans. Of courso I bitterly regret now that I did not, for I could have done it fasily. But, you ee, we bad arranged fix our man to meet him at Driggs' the next morninz, and we wreto be on hand and make the arrest right there, with tho money on him. Things, however, didn't work as we expected. When wo arrived at DriggV next morning, at tho hour agreed upon, it so happened, unluckily, that Guyön had gone out in the woods, about one hundred yarda away, to gt a portion of the money that he had hidden thero. The rest of it he had concealed in an old bucket in the wood-shed. This he Rent Driggs after, while he himself went to tho woods for the remainder. It was just at this junc ture that we arrived at the house. Three rf the officers were stationed around tho house, and Abbott and I went inside. Just as I got to the billiard-room old J'rigzs entered the bach door with the bucket of money in his hando. " 'Well, Mr. Driggs, I've come for you,' paid I. " 'That's all right,' gaid he, smiling ta quietly as if he was merely greeting a neighbor. 'I know vour business.' "He made no effort to resist, and we handended him. His wife came in and we arrested her, but did not handcu If her. Then we started up stairs, supposing Guyon was there. Abbott took one stair way.and I tho other. But we didn't tind cur man, of course. We found an other woman 'Frenchy,' they called her who, probably, was Guyon's woman. In the meantime, how ever, there was trouble. Mrs. Driggs, like ourselves, thought Guyon was up atairs. She knew he wa.i a desperate man, and supposed the shooting wa.s about to begin. As a consequence tho set up screaming, and this gave warning to Guyon, who was returning from the woods. Abbott and I had twelve rooms to look through up stairs, and by the time we were through and down stairs the other officers had discovered Guyon and were after him. Tho firing had be gun before we got out of the yard. Guyon is the coolest man I ever saw, and a daisy with the giui. He trotted along ahead of the men. loading his pistol as he went, and all the time was us cool as a cucum ber. Donnella wart the only ollicer who pot very near him, and he received a shot in the back of the head, but w& not seri ously hurt. Guyon was hit also, I think, in the shoulder, but it did not eeem to bother him much. If a man had ap peared on the scene just then with a shot gun he could have sold it for $000. There was a field of corn as higti an our heads rear by, and next to that a field of oats with two or three email ravines in it; and in this way Guyon escaped. We hunted all day, but without success. In addition, we offered a reward of 67 x) for his capture, which brought a number of men into the hunt, but without success. "Gay on Jim Guyon he is called ha eeveral aliases, among them Jim Hank and Jim Hamilton, lie is a regular nrui rie rat, and hau probably not slept indoors for years. The Driggs woman told me that he never slept in the house when he rairie there. Sometimes when it rained be would sleep in the wood-shed, but generally be stayed in the woods." Nelaon Driggs, the "old man Driggs" to whom Maj. Carter referred, is one of the t--st known counterfeiters in the country. He is now seventy-nine years of age, and has beeu in the business pretty nearly all, his life. Ho was a prosperous young farmer, said to be worth $100,000, and was livmg in Brown county, Ohio, when his crooked work was first discovered. Up to that time he was highly respected. fMnce then, however, he has spent a good por tion of bis time behind the bars, yet it has rot turned him from his crooked ways. He has for some years been conducting a depot for stolen horses, and, considering tie extent of his business, it is remarkable that he was not detected. Maj. Carter says he has no doubt that 500 stolen horses have been taken thero from Indiana alone. Sam Ilivers, recently sent to the peniten tiary from Shelbv county for counterfeit ing, was one of Driggs' best tradesmen in the matter of stolen horses. Driggs paid the thieves 40 per cent, of the value ot the animals, and then shipped them away in largo numbers. This, however, was not the chief source of Iih livelihood, which was counterfeit ing. He was what they call a wholesale dealer in counterfeit money. That is to say, a manufacturer of it, like Guyon, would sell him big amounts of it at a time say, ten or fifteen thousand dollars' worth, charging him probably 15 cents on tho dollar. Then Driggs would deal out the money in smaller quantities to what are called middle-men of whom Sam Rivers was an instance. The latter would retail the mon,ey for what they could get, receiv ing sometimes its high as (i'M cents per dollar for it. Driggs has been engaged in thw busi ness for years and his road-house, known as the United Mates hotel, on Home-avc., I'ayton, near the eoldiers' homo, has been the headquarters tor counterfeiters for years. Two or three of the government oliicors havo been hanging about bis place for a couple of weeks, DriggH thinking they were counterfeiters, as they represented themselves. Two of them accepted Driggs' invitation, on Monday laft, to eat a birthday diuner w ith him, it being his seventy-ninth birthday. Not withstanding Driggs' age, be is the father of an eightecn-months'-old baby, which Maj Carter rronounces"as smart as a chi p." He h.i another Hi xteen-y tar-old daugh ter. His wife, Gertie, is k fit companion for him. She is a member of the famous Madfelt family ot girls of southern Ohio, every ono of whom married a burglar or criminal of some nort. "Gertie" has served a number of terms in prison. Sbo and Driggs wero married in the Cincinnati jail. Another of the Stadfclt girls married Guyon, tho counterfeiter, but subse quently deserted him for a burglar named Sam Cole. The latter encountered Guyon a few years a'o, and a shooting scrapo re sulted, but Cole ran and escaped. Driggs, bis wife and the woman "1'renchy" were a'l taken to Cincinnati and lodged iu jail. Tho old man will, doubtless, get ton years, which, to him, means a life-sentence. The capture, of this crowd makes sixteen that havo been arrested in the three states of Ohio, Indi nna, and Illinois for dealing in tho coun terfet ten-dollar bills. l'ight of them were arrested in this state, six in Ohio and two in Chicago. Jim Gtiyon, however, who is the foun tain head, is still at large, and will, doubt less, begin his nefarious business else where soon. SLOWLY DYING OF LEPROSY. James Kavanaugh of New Orleans Dj I rig or the Pread Disease. New Oiu.eans, La., July 20. A genuino, well-developed case of leprosy, located in a little and isolated cottage at tho corner of Chestnut and Llia-sts., Algiers, across the river from New Orleans, was brought to light to-day. The 'eper is a young man named James Kavnnatigh, twenty-nine years of ago. Kavanaugh was born and reared in Algiers, and was for eleven yearn a "teaiuster" in the employ of Morgan's Louisiana A Texas rail road and steamship eompani'. He was quite popular among his associates about railroad shops and in tho town generally. He is an active and popular member of Morgan steam fire company No. 'A, and is practically cared for by the firemen at pres ent. The disease began to bliow itself about four years ngo in small brown upots on the chest and neck. He called in a prominent and well-known physician on this side of tho river, and after a thorough diagnosis of the caso it was pronounced leprosy and incurable. Fearing contagion, the members ot tho fire company built the little red-painted house above mentioned, and young Kava naugh was placed there as a (loomed man. His father and nister moved into the house with him, and additional rooms were pro vided for their occupancy. In a short time tho disease began to spread until his entire body vna covered with brown spots, his tongue was swollen and cracked until ho could not articulate distinctly, nasal passages clogged, bis eyebrows and lashes fell oil", toe-nails rotted and his en tire body was fast becoming a mass of pu trefaction. A purse of .".00 was made up bv the fire men and offered to any one wlho would cure him. One or two doctors called on him, but he got no relief, and was finally given up to die. Kavanaugh was seen yesterday, and being asked how he thought he contracted the disease whether by inheritance or by contagion he said his father and sister lived in the Fame yard with him and were perfectly healthy; that his progenitors were all a hardy, healthy people, and that he be lieved ho had caught the disease from a young man who worked in the Morgan shops several years ago and died from supposed leprosy. Inouirv among physi cians and citizens of Algiers, and the man's general appearance, nettled tho fact beyond dispute that ho is in the last stages of the loathsome and hideous dis ease. It is also current rumor that there aro other cases of leprosy in and about Al giers; in fact, the people do not seem to feel any alarm, and taik about the disease with as much indifference as if it was a bad cold under discussion. CAME TO KILL THE FAMILY, Hut the Only One lie Succeeded In Killing Wi Himself. KiRKSvnxE, Mo., July 21. About three yean ago James Sylvia and Miau Iluckulew, daughter of a w ell-known citizen of Kirksville, were united in marriage and removed to Keo kuk, Is. About six months ago Mrs. Sylvia rutnrned to her parental roof, saying that her husband would not support her. Yesterday she received a telegram from Sylvia saying he would bo in Kirksville to-dny to kill the family. He ar rived this morning and going to his wife's father1 house called the wife out and asked ter: "Alii, will you return to me?" The woman replied in the negative, whereupon Sylvia fired at her and she fell. Thinking he had killed her, Sylvia turned the weapon upon himself, and cent a ball into hi brain. Jle will die. Mrs. Sylvia vu not hurt Hanged by m Mob, Covington, Ga., July 22. Last night Dan Malone, a negro, twenty-two yean of aje, at tempted to assault a respectable woman, Mrs. Kachael Skinner, living six rnilea from Coving ton.

The Hath of Offlce-Neekere to the Kxeeative Mansion Uaa Deprived It of All Privacy Even the Library Has lleen In vaded Washington News, Washington, July 20. Tbe Star this afternoon prints an interview with Mrs. Harrison, which quotes her as saying that the insufficiency of room in the white house has become a matter of very seri ous inconvenience. Mrs. llarriron says that, although the household of the presi dent is not the largebt ever domi ciled in the official homo of the chief magistrate, the encroachments of official requirements of late jears upon tho apartments used for family purposes has reached a point where relief has be come absolutely necessary. Even the li brary has been taken up for ollice busi ness, and tho cabinet-room now serves the double purpose of public ante-room for senators and others admitted without cards, as well as tbe place for tbe meeting of the president and his advisers. In speaking of this subject, Mrs. Harrison continued: "We are hero for four years. I' do not look beyond that, as many things may oc cur in that time, but I am very anxious to see the family of the president provided for properly, and whilo I am here I hope to bo able to get tho present building put into good condition. Very few people un derstand to what straits tho president's family has been put at times for lack of ac commodations. Keully, there are only five sleeping apartments and there is no feeling of privacy." Mrs. Harrison says that the idea of mak ing an extension to the executive mansion on tho west iddo would not involve any loss on account of the removal of the pres-f-ut conservatories. Tho extension would enable the president's familv to have a private home, where tho president's wifo might see her friends privatel). A PLACE FOR HURLEY.

Mr. P. S. Marvin and Secy. J. B. Kremerof the flood relief commission, wero in town to-day. They visited tho commissary and other re lief headquarters, aud expressed them selves as pleased with what they saw. Mr. Kremer says that over ? 170,000 has already been expended in Johnstown, not includ ing the f."00,000 now being paid out. Ho did not give figures to show clearly where this money had gone, but said it exceeded $170,000. One hundred homes bad been bought or contracted for costing. fl'iO each ; 100 costing T-07 each, and 2(H) two-story homes to te built by Contractor Hughes atJl'oT) each.

Over three-fourths of the money coining into the hands of Oov. IJeaver direct was for the snfierers in the Coneniaugh valley, tho balance being for the flood sufferers of l'ennsylvania. Mr. Kremer aid that it was likely tho Williamsport region would get another appropriation, as it seemed they had not received their share. When asked why a clear statement of the moneys received aud expended was not made, he said there was a difficulty in determining as to what fund certain items should be charged such, for instance, as the burial of the dead. It was a question, he said, whether the fctato had a right to pay for that, ami until these questions wero determined, it was not considered proper to make a statement. Judge Cummin only spent a short timo at his office this morning, he being some what indisposed, ai d Treasurer Thomp son assisted him in his share of the work. This was the biggest day's work yet, and the whole iorce was kept busy until 6 o'clock. Twenty thousand three hundred and forty-two dollars were paid out during the day.

A Collision Iletween the Stenmhoat and Itallroad Men at Ntenhenvllle. STF.rBF.NViM.K, O., July 22. At has been anticipated for the past week, the Pan-Handle railroad company and the Ohio river steamboat meu collided this morning. The railroad com pany recently received permission from the secretary of war to close up the channel of the river at the Pteubenville bridge for the purpose of replacing the channel span. The river men appealed in vain to the secretary of war to have the permit revoked. When a coal licet arrived at the bridge this morning they found the channel almost entirely filled with heavy piles arranged in bents. There was a short consultation, and without advising the men at work in the channel of the inte ntion, the coal-boat Advance, with tiiree barges abreast, came at full speed upon the pile bents breaking down twenty-five of them, breaking the pile driver barge loose from its moorings and badly damaging it. The men on the barge had a narrrow escape from being drawn under the tow and the work was immediately sus pended. Jlardlj had they time to recover from their escape when another boat, the Pa cific, came down by the same route and took away thirty-five more of the piles, leaving over half the channel clear for the following boats. Immediately after this the railroad company ordered the construction of large apron piers above the bridge, which will effectually close the channel for boats. Hoth riilroad and fteamboat men are equally determined to en force their rights in the premises, and the out come will create intense interest along the Ohio and among river men generally, as the serious trouble threatened will demt.nd the in terference of tho government to settle whether the railroad has the right to impede river nav igation that its own trains may run uninter ruptedly. It Would he Infamous. N. V. World. Judge Woods has prostituted the judicial power now in his hands to protect inciters of bribery and corrupters of the suffrage because the rascals were of his own party. No other construction can be put upon his extraordinary course in reversing his own ruling. In his original charge to the grand jury with the Dudley letter in view, Judee Woods said the law "makes any one guilty who counsels bribery" that "it is a crime to alvit another to mnkf. the attempt." In his second charge, made a few weeks later, and after, as he admitted, hearing from Washington, Judge Woods charged that ''it results, of course, that the mere sending by one to another of a letter or document containing advice to brilx a roter, or Betting forth a trheme of bribery, however bold and reprehensible, it not indictable." To promote to the supreme court the author of this shameless stultification done to protect the rascals who carried Indiana for Harrison by organized bribery and corruption would be the most infamous use of the appointing power ever made in this country.

A Plan and Woman, Thought to Have Ileen Cnttle Thieves, Hung. Cheyenne, W. T., July 22. A telegram re ceived to-day announces the lynching at Sweet Water of Jim Avcrill and a woman who lived with him as his wife. Avenll was postmaster at Swe'et Water, which consists chiefly of a station contiguous to a number of ranches. Avarill drifted into the Sweet Water country four years ago and at once took up government claims. He was soon joined by a woman, who took tip a claim ad joining the town of Cart well. Roth were recog nized as hard citizens. The woman was one of the most daring riders in the country. She rode, man fashion, the most vicious brutes, and in roping cattle could take her idace with the average cowboy. For a long time both have been under suspicion as cattle rustlers. They have rapidly accumulated a herd, and as they :ame to the country without any thing, it ii regarded ai evidence against them. This rear they turned loose twenty-five frcahly branded yearling calves w hich completely sat isfied the stork men thnt th:-y were maverick ing. which particular act led to the lynching. I'rooi particulars received it is known that a small hand of masked men surrounded their cabin last night and using a decoy, suc ceeded in getting both to the door. They were captured after a desperate struggle, and after being bound, were led some distance away and together strung up to a limb of a tree and their bodies riddled with bullets. A FIGHT IN THE DARK. An I'nknown Man and a Cleveland (.) Offi cer Killed. Clevflanp, O., July 21. Two prisoners, W. A. Smith aud Richard X.

Deputy Slieritf Joseph (ioldsoll went to the western pnrt of the city where one of the nun lived, and with a policeman lay in wait for the fellows. About midnight a carriage containing two men passed along the street. The oflicers called to the occupants of the ve hicle to stop, and after some talk one of them fired a revolver at the policeman. lie and (ioldsoll opened fire in return, a half dozen shots being exchanged, (ioldsoll fell at the first volley, shot through the abdomen, and the rig was driven rapidly away. The wounded officer was taken to the hospital, where he now lies in a dying condition, and an hour later the rig driven by the two men was found a mile from the place of the shooting. In the buirgy wns the dead body of one of the men. He had been shot through the body. It was at first thought the dead man was Smith, tho younger of the prisoners, but those who knew Smith utterly failed to identify the corpse, and to-night the polico are still in the dark. They think, however, that the dead man was up to mischief, for in the buggy were found two revolvers, a club, screw-driver and a piece of rope. The horse, which had been stolen in the eastern part of the city, was wounded in the hip, and the buggy was riddled with bullets. It is believed that the other man was also wounded. AN OHIO TRAGEDY.

POLICE HOPELESSLY IN THE DARK. As Little Prospect of Catching the Fiend aa When the First of the Ilntchered Women Waa round Uleedlng ia the Street Many Arrests. London, July 17. The woman whose body was found in Castle alley in the White Chapel district last night was a middle aged prostitute. Her throat bad been cut to the spiue. When the body was found it was lying on its back. The clothing had been thrown up, expobing the abdomen, which had been gashed in a hor rible manner in several places, though the in testines were not exposed. No part of the body was missing. Warm blood was flowing from the wounds when the body was discovered. A. policeman who, with the w atchman of an ad jacent warehouse, must have been within a few yards of the spot where the murder took placa when it was committed, heard no noise. Policemen have been placed at fixed poinU in White Chapel since the murders of this char acter there, and since the murder preceding that of last night officers have been stationed at a point within a hundred yards of the scene of the latest tragedy. An oi l clay pipe smesred w ith blood was found alongside tbe body. It is supposed by the police that this will furnish a clew to the murderer, although it may have be longed to the victim. Several arrests of sus pectfd persons have I wen made, but they were discharged from custody, there being no proof on which to hold them. It is stated that a letter was received by th police officials before last night's murder, , signed 'Jack the Ripper," in which the writer said that he was "about to resume his work." LonlON, July 18. After holding the inquest last nicht cn the body of the latest victim of the White Chanel fiend, the police appear tn be aa hope!rsly in the dark as ever, and U bare as little prospect of catching the criminal as when the first of the murdered women was found bleeding in the street. This time tbe woman's body was scarcely cold when she waa discovered. The warm blood was flowing from tbe gashes in her body. A policeman, was stalking about within fifty yards of tl snot. Lights were moving in the windows of the adjacent tenement-houses, but the murderer did his work so swiftly and silently that on one heard the victim's cty. He as allowed to escape, aud will remain unmolested until ho gets ready to commit another butchery. Jims far ( luef I ommissiouer Monroe a tactics have been practically the same aa t those of Sir Charles Warren. He ha flooded the White Chapel district with 1olice who, acting under special orders, ept the newspapers in the dark as much aa possible. As in the case of the previous murder, suspected men have been dragged into poll" stations all day long, simply because they wore rags or had no home, and were Im mediately let go again. Some of them were ignorant that they did rifit even know there bad been a murder. One effect of this policy is U fan into fierce flame the public excitemeut. Of false news of arrests, of wild rumors, and of sensational theories there are no end; of o ful facts which may lead to a clew to catch th murderer there are hut very few. In the matter of details this murder differs very little from the others. It is true that there are no such revolting mutilations, but every thing got s to show that this is simply because the assassin had beeu interrupted in his work, being frightened by a drunken peddler, who had stopped to wrangle with the policeman on the beat A correspondent saw the body of the victim to-day in the mortuary. The throat was cut in the name manner as in the case of the Der-ner-t. woman, by plunging a knife just under the left ear and cutting toward It he right ear sufficiently to completely sever the windpipe. The woman probably never had time to titter a rry. The only other wound on tbe body was a deep cut in the stomach, extending from tbe waist to the pit of the abdomen. Tbe intett:nea were not disturbed. Not till to-nii;ht were the police able to find out who the woman as. Her name waa Alice MchTenr.ie, and, as in the case of Jack the Rip per's other victims, she was one of those unfor tunate creatures who find their living oa the streets. The correspondent talked to two women who saw berat 11:30 o'clock the night, of the murder. Mie was sober then. At 12:5 o'clock, when all the public bouses were closed by law, tho barkeeper of a "pub" situated a Quarter of a nd)e from the scene of the runr er says that he turned her into the streets be cause she had been drinking some, bnt was not actually drunk. Making her way home, the woman turned into Commercial-si tbe exac region where most of the other murders had been committed. Here all traces of her was lost till the body was found in Castle alley at 1:25 yesterday morning. Four policemen pa:rol the vicinity (d Castle alley, It ia considered one of the worst places in London. The officer whoee special duty it is to watch the alley swears that he parsed the spot ten minutes before he foun I the body, but there was nothing there then. 1 here are four entrances to Cattle alley. It is about twenty-five feet wide and 401 long. At night customers living near are allowed V store their wagons and hand-carts there. T IT" 1 1 r 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 uvunrn, n wan iiinau iu i. iiv 'uv.- lio bath house surround it. It is almost im posoible that any struggle should have occured without somebody hearing it. Only a few yard away is a street as bread aa tbe Bowery nnd thronged with people going from the "pubs" and concert halls just as busy a thoroughfare, in fact, as the Ilowery is at midnight. An tx rremher of the metropol itan police, w! t was standing Ulking with a friend at the corner of Castle alley, not more than forty yards distant, about the time of the murder, neither saw nor hesrd any thing. Mrs. Smith, who keeps the publie bath bouse, says she did not go to bed till after t o'clock. She was moving about the kitchen, with the windows facing on tbt slley wide o,en, and heard no noise till the olTn'r gave the alarm. She do s not think that the body was quite dead when it was found. Isaac Lewis, who claims to be the first civi'iara who saw the body after the murder, wstched hp while the policeman went for assistance, lb! says that the blood was still spurting from th'j throat when the woman was found, mdlcatin- that the heart had not ceased to beat, Thi clothes were all crushed upou the cheft of the body and the lees were nude. There were blcod marks on the face and on the left thigh, as if a band covered with blood bad been placed there to hold the soman down. Lewis adds that a watchman had been employed at Casüe alley till two weeks ago to look after the wheel barrows. When the barrows were removed the man was di? charged. He thinks that the mur derer knew this. Some fifty constables selected from other dis tricts of the metropolis last spring for special duty in White Chapel were removed this week. Three weeks ago the police reclved several let ters saying that Jack the Ripper was going to begin operations again. No attention waa raid to them. They were signed "Jack tbe Rin per," and indited in the same ditguised writ ing as the letters received last spring. The ril Mall Gautle said last nicht that a fort niidit aeo a man called at its ofboe and said he knew the east-end well, and that he was sure that the butcheries there would soon begin again.
