Tr TY, On. Dec. 3. One thousand gathered In, a'n open field near Isabella, Worth County, and witnessed 0110 of the most hideous spectacles ever onuctod on a gjbpot in Giorgio. Tho victim was a square built negro of coal-black comploxion, who murderod another negro named Janios Monroe on tho 17th of. Inst September, thoro being MAYSVILLE, KY., TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1883. an old grudgo Dotweoa the men. On the night of the crime West hid himself in tho shade of Monroo's gate post, and when the lnttcrcamo home, dealt him a blow on the back of the head with a maul, foiling him to the ground liko an ox. West then jumped on his victim, kicked him about tho fmco and hoad, and beat bis skull in a tbnploss moss with tho maul. West fled, wag capturod, tried and convicted. Ho was but olghtoon years old. Tojday he rode from his place of confinement to the gallows smoking a cigar. The ropo having failed to arrive. Sheriff Hatton Jmprovisod 0110 from throo weak looking Wost sat on theTgnllows singing songs, iu which the crowd joined when the chorous was reached. Tiring of singing, tho prisoner amused himself smoking nnothor cigar and tracking jokes with tho crowd. At 19il5 tho word wn irlrnn nnd tlio drop fell, breaking near tho beam und precipitating West to the ground in a heap, with his face hidden with the black cap. A shout arose from the crowd, and a rush forward was made, ns though a rescue wero to be attempted. Tho Sheriff nnd his posse drow Uieir weapons nnd held the murmuring mass nt bay. West's anus und legs woro unpinlonud, nnd, the black cap being lifted, ho revived in ilf teen minutes, and remounted the scaffold whllo another ioje was being procured. West then made a fnrewoll speech, In which ho chargsd his frionds with inducing him to commit tho crime and then swearing his life away. He said he was going straight to hearon, and desired to meet all the spectators'. In conclusion he said: "When 1 go now I hope the breath will Icavo me." Tho noose and black cap were readjusted, and after a short prayer the trap was again sprung. Tbo fall, a distance of live feet, broko his neck, ami Hfo was pronounced extinct iu fifteen minutes. Tho body was taken In chargo by tho negroes and buried THEZORA BURNS CASE. T.atexr DnTclnpiurutii Conreriiln the Illinois Slystery. Vandaua, 111., Dec. '). Tho report that tbo photographs of Zora Burns ttro being sold in Lincoln at fifty cents each led to nn Interview with her father: "Yes," bald tho old man, "I presume it is true, ns I hnve given tho Sheriff and a Dloomlngton dotectivo pictures of my daughter." Continuing he said: "Whllo in .Lincoln tho last tlmo 1 had a photographer 6ll'cr mo $5 to sit for a negative, which I spurned indignantly." Tho enterprising artist, to accomplish his desired aim, formod a deep-laid plot, which was to bo carried out with tho assistanco of a confederate. It was like this: Tho confederate was to accost Mr. Hums on tho street, get him up In the vicinity of tbo artist's placo of business, and then ongago him lu conversation, while tho artist got in bis work. The scliomo appeared to bo working nicely, and doubtless would have succeeded had not tho subject's attention been attracted by a crowd gathering up the street, which aroused Ids suspicious. Said tho old gentleman: "It took 1110 but an In.stuiit to discover the muzzle of tho camera directed toward mo, and I hastened to get out of rango before it wont off." Detectives H. B. Morgan and Mark Lar-ton, the latter a now one, aro in this city looking up clews bearing on tho Zora llurus case. Morgun has been here several times during the past month, and from tho tenor of his talk ho Is not particularly desirous of having any one convicted; but, on tho other hand, is wholly given to the belief that Curpenter Is innocent, and appoars to be working diligently to bring about his acqulttul. Ho Is looking uj) Miss Burns' personal frelnds, with a view of obtaining such evidenco as will establish the fact that she had been of easy virtue for soveral years pust. Ho holds to the theory thut tho man who accompanied Zora Burns from this placo to Lincoln is her murderor. Larton is working in tho interests of tho people, and Is endeavoring to gather facts that will lead to the discovery of tho red-handed llcnd, lot It bo who It may. Ho Is freo In admitting that his trip hero has not been frultlots. EXTRAORDINARY CASE. A Woman Marries u btrancnr to Aiold aiarryiug tho Man hlie Lovoi. Erie, Pa., Dec. a A young lady of appearance, giving the name of Amelia Royso, of Cincinnati, accompanied by a shabbily dressed man giving the name of Charles Trayner, of Utica, N. Y., entered tho court of Judgo Froemau Saturday and nskod to bo married. After tho preliminary quostions were askod, the marrlagowas performed; The lady then turnod to her uusuauu and coldly but quietly told him that ho would lose his truin if he wasted too much time. He bade the lady nnd loft tho room. After his departure tho Judy, remarking to tho Judgo that soma explanation was duo him for tho strange proceeduro, said: "There Is nothing wrong in nil this. No crimo, no despair, nothing tragic. I am simply putting it out of my power to say 'Yes' to tho only man on earth It would ploaso and hurt me most to marry. For private reasons I can not marry this gentleman without bringing great sorrow upon both of us in tho futuro, and, to place myself beyond reach of temptation, I have married this stranger. It is not likely tliat I shall ever see this man Trayner again. Ho porfoctly understands thut ho was hired to marry me, and then go about bis business." After requesting tho Judgo to Inform the newspapers of tho marrlago and to forwar.d copies of tho papers to tho Baltimore Sun, Washington Critic and Denver Tribune, and laying n twenty dollar gold piece on mo laoio, ine lady lots the court room. Tho Judge suspects that Royse Is not lior real name, or Cincinnati her homo, and that insanity is the troublo she feared to bring upon hersolf and U10 man sbo loves. THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.

FIXING UP THE SLATE. GUESSING AT THE SPEAKER'S LlST. 1 , " Probnblo .Olmlrtnaniulpi of .tlio Loading Committees What the Dofentud Candidates are I.lkoly to Oct General lolp. Wasiiinoto.v, Dec. a The oxcitemont which has prevailed here for the past two weeks over tho Speakership contest subsided suddenly with the nomination of Mr. Carlisle. The results of Saturday night's caucus work have been the chief topic of conversation among politicians, publio men, ofllco holders aud olUcoRoukers, in the hotols, and, in fact, everywhere where two or three could get together. Tho contest for tbo Speakership engendered no bitter feeling amone tho candidates and their friends, and has beenremuiknbly freo from ersonalltics and unploasant episodes, so tho soronoss resulting from defeat felt by tho adhorcnts of Mossrs. Randull and Cox will, it is belioved, Boon wear away. t Now that tho contest Is ended, tho gossips are busily engaged In arranging tho House committees. Mr. Carlisle will, many claim, go Into tho Speakor's chair lewhutnporod by political bargains and arrangements mado by himself or his "friends that any Speaker for years past. Various stories aro afloat as to what members will bo made chnlrmon of the most important committees. This is especially tho caso in regard to the chairmanship of tho Committee on Ways and Means. It is thought this will go to Mr. Morrison, of Illinois, but It is also rumored that the chairmanship of this committee will be tlvon to Hon Randolph Tucker, of Virginia, as tho only member of that delegation who supported Carllslo for tbo Speakership, and that Mr. Mori Ison, of Illinois, will be given thesecond pluco on tho Ways mid Means and a chairmanship on a less Important committee. Mr. Randall will without doubt have tho C'ominltteo on Appropriation aud also a prominent place on the Ways nud Means Committee. It is said that Representative Cox will bo made Chairman of tho on Commerce, or, if ho should prefer it, will be given tho Banking aiiil Cur rency committee. Thoru uie stories calculated to suit all tastes respecting the chairmen and members of tho other committees, but It Is too early to pi edict with any degree of certainty where members will bo plaiod. Mr. Carlisle will probably not begin the work of preparing the committee list until Tuesday, and, unit ss Ik. is more successful than his predecessors have been, tho v. oik will nut be completed much befoie tho nilddloof tho mouth. There is a dlsosltioii among leading Democrats to have the Committee on Appropriations organized so that work can be gotten under way there prior to tho holiday recess. To-day's sossion In the House will probably bo developed, after organization, to hearing the reading of the President's messugo, although some members nro of tho opinion that even the reading of tho messugo will be deferred until Tuesday. Tho seleotlou of seats will occupy 0110 day, and some members me in favor of devoting to this work. Tho several newly selected subordinate olllcers of the Houmi have already received numerous applications for positions iu their respective departments, and, in the language of one of tbo present Incumbents, "The outs are terribly hungry, and I suppose we shall all be invited to vacate our positions in loss than twenty-four hours." Nearly every now member has come to Washington expecting to lind places for from one to a half dozon of tholr constituents, nnd tho demnnd ujion the subordinate ofilcers of the Houso are unusually harassing. The Republican Senators expect to holt! a caucus on Tuesday for tho purpose of nonilnntlni; olllcers for tho Senate. The Sunday Horald says authorltlvely that "Senators Mahone and RIddlebergor will not enter this caucus, aud that they will vote for no 0110 for Secretary but Mr. George C. Gorham. It is generally conceded that the Democratic members will offer no opposition to the proposod reorganization of the Senate olllees. Cnlhoakor, of Vermont, tho retiring sergeant at arms of tbo House, says ho thinks be will secure tho same position at the other end of the Capitol. Mr Janios Young, of Philadelphia, is strongly urged for the position Of Executlvo Clerk, and bis chances for rocolving It aro said to be excellent, SHERIFF SHOT. Tho Dondly Outgrowth of an Old drudge. Platte Citt, Mo., Dec. 3. John Woodson, Deputy Sheriff, was shot and klllod at Camden Point by a blacksmith named Tipton. Tho two men had had troublo before, and tho tragedy was pai tly the outgrowth of a grudge. Tipton, it is reported, was under the infiuenco of liquor and Woodson attempted to arrest him. Woodson drew his revolver, and Tipton putting his hand into bis pocket, which contained a revolver, fired through his coat Woodson was a son of ox-Governor Woodson, of Missouri. The grudge grew out of an occurrence about a yenr ago. Tipton had a colored girl bound to him to work and a colored fellow took her away. Tipton is said to havo got a crowd together to go after and lynch tho colored follow and rocovor the gltl. This failed, and the crowd was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Woodson. The crowd be ing cleared on trial, there has boon a enmity between them slnco. Thursday thoy met In a store and quarreled, but were prevented from lighting. Both of them got on their horses when tho shooting took place, as above stated. Woodson was shot in tho stomach aud died this morning at 4 o'clock. 1 1 Desetted nnd Disowned. Denver, Col., Doc. 3. Mrs. Victoria Roberts, who died hero suddonly, brought to a close a very eventful career. Sho was a daughter of Dr. J. P. Kennedy, of and married a man named Roberts there about two years ago. They moved to Chicago, where, it is alleged, her husband desorted her. Too proud to go back to her parents, she canio to Denver about six months ago, and has slnco beon living by her own sliamo. This coming to the ears of her parents thoy her. Within the last two months sho has been drinking heavily, und this was probably the cause of her death, although rumors of suicide are prevalent. The coroner Informod her relatives by telegraph of her death, and tho answer came to-night that they could have nothing to do with the burial. On her death-bed Mrs. Roberts lieggod her companions to ask her relatives if thoy would not send for her retnalm and bury them at Pittsburg. THE NATION'S FINANCES.

KENTUCKY WHISKY POOI MOVEMENT TO LIMIT PRODUCTION, The Distillers1 Meeting Tlml la to lie Meld j Louisville on the Twelfth of December. Louisville, Ky., Dec a-A meotlng ol the distillers of Kentucky Is called to con vene at the Pheonix-Hotel In Lexington on Wednesday, December 13, for tho purpos of organizing a pool to control the production of whisky throughout the State. Tho necessity for such, an organization hat been keenly felt since the enormous of tho seasons of 1831 and 183. About 33.000,000 gallons of whisky wore produced In Kentucky In each of those years, and tho result was that tho market was overstocked and tho distilleries were compelled to suspend operations During ine season ot itXM, which embraced the months from the fall of 1883 to the spring of 18K3, only 0,000,000 gallons wore In Kentucky. There is a steadily increasing demand all over the country" for Kentucky whisky, but this demand does not exceed over' 13,000,000 gallons jwr year. The object of tho distillers of this State now is to form a pool and not produco any more whisky than the actual demand for it requires. At a meeting of the Stato Distillers' Assoclatlou somo time ago this idea was deuounced, and tlio matter was referred to a committee to solicit tho of those." distillers all over the State who favbred tho formation of a pool. This committee has been hard at work, ami It has succeeded in getting tbo signatures of distillers representing In the aggrcgato nbout sixty per cent of the producing capacity of all tho distilleries In the State. All of the largest distillers hare signified their willingness to enter tho pool, and it is only the small producers who havo staid out When the coimnittoo was appointed to obtain the signatures it, was generally understood that if sixty per cent of tho producing capacity could be obtalnod the pool would lie formed, and now that tho per cent has been obtained the meeting for the 12th of December has boon calks! for the nurnoso of nut llin I. Ion advanced some time ago. If a pool Is formed, and there Is every Indication that It will be, tho plan of producing 12,000,000 gallons of whisky per senson will apply to overy year in the future, or until the demand becomes so much grenter that a larger production Is By the forming of a pool distilleries will lie scaled according Uj tho capacity, and iu this scaling tho smaller distilleries will be favored to a greater extent than the larger ones, for if tho smnll distillers wero not allowed to run their establishments to almost tholr full capacity thoy could barely make a living.
