Tho Enjfpr lupt of An Anxiona Par. nit -Tracing ho Story or An Excltlntf Chaao mid 1'robablo Cnpttiro. CniCAtio, Aug. 10. The particulars t ' a sensational elopement in high life were reported nt the Central police station shortly before 12 o'clock w'lneh the detectives sedulously endeavored to suppress from the newspapers. It was after midnight when a gentleman, apparently fifty years of age, rushed breathlessly into the police station and anxiously inquired for a detective. "My daughter, my only child, has gone," he said, in evident deep distress, "and I want the help of the police to recover her. She is all I have in the world and I must save her. Can you help me?" The gentleman, who was, apparently, a well-to-do farmer, of intelligence and undoubted social standing, wrung his hands in grief at tho bereavement ho had been called upon to undergo, lie said that his name was Jacob Rchybach, his homo a country-Tillage near Pittsburg, Pa., and that ho was tlio owner of a largo fortune, consisting of an extensive tract of land in tho most valuable parts of the Pennsylvania coal regions. Ilis fortune was riot, however, his choicest possesion. Tho jewel of his heart and the apple of his eye was his daughter Nettie, eighteen years of age, and a rustic belle. The beautiful girl was surrounded by lovers, honest young farmers who loved her not for her wealth, but for herself alone and she was reckoned a of virtue and goodness among ler own little social bet. Nettie however, was of an ambitious nature, and tho love of tho young men whom she had known almost since infancy was notgood enough for her. Though the imperious belle was wooed by worthy young men, she refused their honest proposals and sighed for her ideal lover. He came at last, and Nettie fell at onco into the snare of his smiles and smooth speeches. It was at a picnic near her native village that she first met the man, and he was invited to call upon her. Ho was " from the city," and completely captured the hcartof the guileless girl. Her friends advised her to beware of his flattery, and suggested that he might be a fortune-hunter. She scoffed at i uicir insinuations, nowever, Mini, mougu the young man' attentions to their daughter were viewed with evident distaste and distrust by the loving parents, the daughter continued to receive them. Pleadings weie of no avail, and finally Mr. Rchybach determined to effect a cure, if possible, by tending his daughter to visit friends in Chicago. The proposition to mule tin visit was received by her with signs of pleasure, and it was hoped she would forget her lover, who, though dressed in the latest style, could not persuade tho honest old couple that he was all he represented himself to be. The old gentleman bu.sied himself in making inquiries of the young fellow's antecedents, and though he could learn nothing positive, he heard enough U convince him that the accepted siiito: for his daughter's hand was u gambler aint an adventurer. Tho scheme of sendinc the girl away from home availed nothing, for before leaving home, she saw lior lover and told him of her intended trip. When she arrived in Chicago the lover, it was found, had preceded her, and tho which her father had vainly endeavored to break, was renewed. Mr. Rehybach came to Chicago on learning how matters stood, and prepared to take his daughter back to her home. was delayed, and tho delay fatal to the father's plans. froven discovered that tho girl was missing and her knight was also non est. There seemed no doubt in Mr. Rchybach's mindthat they had eloped and he, in desperation, sought the aid of the detectives. This aid was promised, and Mr. Rehyback left police headquarters much reassured. Ho would not tell where his daughter had been staying, who her friends hero are, or the name of her cavalier. It is known, however, that tho young lady was viyting somewhere on the North Side. The polico hope soon to gain a clew as to tho of the ruuaway couple. "UNCLE SAM AND MEXICO. What tho Mexican MinUtor Huh to Nuy About Nome llecent Humor. "Washington, Aug. 10. The attention of Senor Coverubias, of the Mexican legation, was called to tho rumor that Mexico and Germany h&d entered into a treaty, offensive and defensive. lie said : "That rumor has no foundation in fact, to my certain knowledge. It is true, however, that a treaty was recently signed and ratified between Germany and Mexico, but it is a commorcial treaty, with provisions almost exactly similar to that pending between tho United States and Mexico, and which your Senate will consider next winter. This' treaty with Germany is not a Becret treaty in any 6ense of tho word.I ts provisions have not yet been publicly announced, but it will bo published within a few day. "With this rumor, which originated somewhere that I can not imagine, is coupled a statement that thero is a bitter feeling existing among my countrymen against yours. Nothlug could bo more remote from the truth. "When American capital was first introduced into Mexico there was a very general and widespread dissatisfaction among tho lower classes, for thoy believed that It was but tho first step to-ward tho annexation of Mexico to the United States. Of courso the educated peoplo knew that thero was no' the slightest political significance in tho fact that American capital Bhould find a field. forlprofitjiblo lricnt in Mexican failroacTs, and it was not a great while before this feeling of dissatisfaction totally expired. Now wo welcome capital from tho United Statos, and thero is nothing but the friendliest state of feeling existing between the citizens of the two republics. "These railroads that have been built mark an important advance of prosperity for Mexico. They are only in their in fancy now, but already the tremendous advantage of quick and certain transportation has manifested itself. "Why, only re cently, by means of the new railroads built by capital from the United States, the Government was able to quoll a formidable revolution which had been started in one of our sections. " I notice that there arc several men going about through this country getting themselves interviewed in tho newspapers and trying to influenco public sentiment against Mexico. One oi theso parties, who was interviewed a short time ago, is tho man who followed Diaz from place to placo while ho was here on his last visit, begging and pleading with him to uso his influence to get this person a fat office under tho Mexican Government Diaz refused absolutely to have anything to do with him, and lie has taken the newspaper columns us a method to vent his spleen. You can imagine how much influence a man of his caliber ought to havo with the public at large. This man is a professional office-seeker. Although ho is a citizen of tlu United States, 1 suspect that a good office would make him renounce his allegiance in fifteen minutes. In conclusion I wisL to say that at no time have the relation! between Mexico and tho United State been moro pleasant and friendly than a) the present moment." PERILOUS ESCAPE. Two TIiIcvcb Dive From n nliiK 1'nnHoniccr Train. Sioux. Citv, Io.,Aug. 10. On Monda of tkis'wcek two men entered the tickel office at Storm Lake and stole a bag ol silver coin valued at $'20. They wen tracked to Fort Dodge, and thero arrested by the bheriff of Storm Lake, who started on Tuesday night with them to tho place where tho theft was committed. The twe men were handcuffed together and given u seat in tho smoking car. The sheriff sal in the scat just nhcad and watched lib men until they apparently went asleep Then he, being very much wearied by lac. of rest, thought all was safe nud compose himself for a snooze. At o point about half-way between and Pomcroy tho prisoners, who had either been playing possum or who awoke, saw that tho sheriff was asleep, and to gether they silently slid out of their ser and made their way to mo door at theothe. end of the car. A brakeman and one oi two passengers caught sight of the move ment, and one of the pavsengers touched the sheriff on the shoulder, saving,' 'You birds have flown." Tho officer spruuj into tho isle and rati toward the door When tho prisoners saw this from tli platform one stepped on one platform and the other stood on the other. Loth gave whoop, one asked, "Are you roadv?" tlu other answered "Go," and instantly hot! dived headlong with hands extended hit the tall prairie grass. The brakenian,wh was nearoit the door, and who heard tlu question and reply oi the daring thieve.-, states that they went through tho air fullv thiity feet before thoy struek tho grass. Tho conductor w.ts in the three ahead of the platform from whicl the men jumped, and before he could bt notified the train had run about half a mile. . The men did not rise from the grass, which is about four feet tall, unci it was supposed they were killed. The train stopped to back, when botli tho perilous plungeM were seen to rise and run rapidly to the grovo of trees in which they escaped. The Sheriff had recovered the money the thieved btole und ho was not so anxious ubout them. Consequently the search was not prosecuted. The plunge from tho train is regarded by the railroad men as one of the most daring feets on record, and it was rendered especially so from tho fact that at the point they escaped, Tom Shannon, tho engineer, was "letting her out" and the wheels were turning' down grade not less than thirty-five miles an hour.

MORE ABOUT DIES. His Posthumous Version of the Killing of Nutt. A (Story Prepared Ily tho Mnrdcrer JiiHt After tho KllUnff nnd Now lMibllNhcd Itn ttll'ect Upon Public Opinion Full puilMof tho Crime -Tho l'cmllnff Trial or IHiltos' An Interesting Document. Uniontown, Pa., Aug. 10. Just after tho acquittal of N. L. Dukes for the murder of Nutt, and when the public feeling against the former Was high, it was suggested to him that, in view of the manifost fa t that his life was in grave danger, it would be wlso to prepare for posthumous publication, if necesssry. a statement by his own hand giving his individual side of the tragedy in which he was a performer. This Dukes acted upon. He was killed, and in three weeks the trial of his murderer will take place. In it In- describes the killing: " On the morning of the 20th of December, 1882, 1 was sitting beside my desk in the Jennings Hotel reflecting upon my troubles. The porter rapped at my door. His rap is very familiar to me because he carries my coal. I said, ' Come in.' The colored potter stepped back and Mr. Breckenridgo stood in tho door. I rose, stepped within, about six feet of the door and was going to shake hands with him. He said, 'Captain Nutt wants to see you.' I had no time to reply when the Captain pushed into view, passed Mr. Ureckenridgo and into tho room, and slammed the door shut without turning. He did not lift his eves to mine, but hissed through his teeth, 'f want to see you!' and rushed upon me with his cane upraised. I instinctively threw down my head and threw up mv arm and the blow fell severely diagonally across tho urm. I grappled with him nnd caught tho cane. We struggled a feW momenta and I wrested the cane from him, and tried to strike him down. He then threw himself against me and the blow had no effect. We were now struggling once more, and had scuflled over into the corner back of the bed by the window. I now knew I was his superior in physical strength, and could have drawn my pistol and sliot him in tho struggle, the pistol being self-acting, but 1 did not want to kill him. 1 concluded to do nothing but keep him from hurting me, and 1 cried 'Murder 1 murder !' with the full force of my lungs, in order to bring some one to the rooue. As soon as this alarm was given, Captain Nutt called 'Clark, Clark, Clark,' in a much lower touo than that employed by me. This call for his nephew, who had accompanied him there with tho threat in his letter of an avenger, filled mo with terror nnd desperation. I instantly threw mysolf upon the cane with all my power, And it was mine. He sprang away to avoid another stroke of the cane back to the mantel, and as he went he thrust hi right hand into his overcoat pocket und attempted to draw his pistol. It seemed entangled. I shall never forget the murderous look in his eyes. Tho awful moment had come. It was he or 1. In the twinkling of an eye my pistol was diuwn fioni my hip pocket, my right foot and arm advaiKyd, the trigger pissed, a Hash and Captain Nutt sank down; 1 heard a confusion. 1 turned my head and saw Mr. Breckenridge about the foot of the bed hastening to Captain Nutt. Tinned towaid me wns tho black face and white eyes of the negro. The whole picture is indelibly impiesed upon my niemorv. I can never forget it." A FIGHT IN THE WOODS.
