A Terrible Tlot IHsriiverett.
Vit.N v. Oct. 10. Tliu Vienna police
have f urnished the press w Ith an account
of the recentlj -discovered anarchist plot to
burn Vienna. Although many details are
obv iouslj suppressed, the plot is show n to
hav e surpassed in extent and diabolical in
genuity any djnatuite plot hitherto concoct
ed. Seventeen of the conspirators have
been arrested. An examination of Die
prisoners shows that the plot was hatched
in and directed from America and London,
and was to be carried out by Viennese An
archists who recentlj returned from Amer
ica. The plot was clevwly organized. The
conspirators were divided into several
groups, one of which w as detahed to set fire
to the town, another to take charge of the
dynamite operations, and anothei to forge
the necessary official documents and to coin
money for expenses. Parties were detailed
to set fire to 1'enzing. Vnternieldling, Uet
zendorf, Meldhng and Faontcn.
The police got wind of the plot and
watched it until it was almost mature. The)
receive universal praise for their zeal and
circumspection. An anarchist of Prague
gave the first information concerning the
conspiracj to the authorities. The plotters
were mostly Czecks and Germans. Thej
held secret meetings in a tavern at Penzing,
where operators were instructed in the use
and manufacture of bombs. The seizures in
clude numerous daggers and bombs, dyna
mite, fire bottles for firing buildings, print
ing and forging implements, and a variety
of disguises, all of the most ingenious char
acter. Another plan to obtain money was by
means of a forged document to frighten old
ladies, at whose houses the plotters would
make a domiciliary visit under pretense of
searching for counterfeit money, when they
would seize all the good money upon which
they could lay hands. A recent fire in a
private house was the result of an experi
ment with a tire bottle.

Mnmlpolnt of a Itrpubllcan KiilKht of
Senator A. D. Fassett, who was In
Springheld a few dajs ago in the intercstof
the Cincinnati Commercial OozrMc, sends
the following letter concerning the political
situation In this district to his paper. It
will be read vvitli much Interest In this city,
where Senator Fassett is known to be a
Knight of Labor, and a republican of the
truest blue :
Nowhere else In tills state Is the political
situation so complicated as It is here. When
the conditions are all favorable Clark coun
ty is good for two thousand republican ma
joritj. and it looks to me that It will remain
steadfast and roll up the usual majority for
brave old General Kobinson and the repub
lican state ticket. It also looks to me that
the candidates forjudges on the republican
ticket w ill command the full strength of the
partv. The trouble begins when the name
of General Robert P. Kennedy, the con
gressional nominee. Is reached, and it con
tinues dovv 11 to Infirmary director. I tried
to find some good, substantial reasons for
the opjH)sltion to Kennedy and the repub
lican county ticket, and 1 believe that
during the two days I remained in Spring-
field I probed the matter to the bottom.
The opposition Is the outgrowth of last
spring's labor troubles. These troubles had
their origin in a mistaken idea conceived bv
Wm. N. Whiteley, of the Champion works.
ot the alms and objects of the Knights of
Labor. Jir. Whiteley Is one of the wealthi
est, and at the same tiiuo most benevolent,
citizens of Springheld. There is not one
element in his character or one spot in his
life to designate him the arch enemy of
labor he has come to be regarded since last
March. He is one of the plainest dressed
men in the city. He has no aristocratic
notions. He Is, in short, a very large man,
and is as big-hearted and generous as he is
large. Hut he Is stubborn, self-willed,
somewhat rev engeful and dictatorial when
iua fight He was informed that many of
his employes were Knights of Labor, and
his informant misrepresented that order. It
was represented to him that the Knights
were preparing for a. strike, and with mi
other object In view than self-preservatiom,
without Investigation, he forbid the em
ployment of Knights of Labor.
The fact is there were only arevr Knigiits
In his employ when that edict went out,
but the spirit of it was so un-American, so
foreign to the prevailing opinions of free
dom that the membership increased In a few
da) s from three hundred to three thousand.
There are now ten assemblies in the city,
and the member-hip Is thirtj-three hun
dred. A better class of w orklngmen never
assisted in the upbuilding of a city. A
more determined set of men never stood up
together as those Springfield Knights, and
the issue is squarely joined.
To still runner complicate matters, Mr.
Whiteley. angry at the press of the city.
which, without an exception, criticised his
course, started a paper of his own a little
one, for a cent It Is a bright, sparkling,
newsy little lreebooter on the
sea of Springfield journalism, and
were It not for the bitter,
revengeful spirit breathed into Its nostrils
during its spirit of incubation, it might be
a valuable acquisition to the city. As it is
Its a mission seems to be to abuse and mis
represent the Knights of Labor. Kach Is
sue charges them with being Socialists,
Communists and Anarchists.
Wherever jou go in the city the Knights
have sympathizers. The newspapers, the
lawjers, the bankers and business urn
generally are their friends If not openly.
they are covertly. The Knights are all em-

Mr. Whiteley, it is readily conceived, had
become a powerful political leader. His
workingmen loved him, for he would get
out In the street and march and sing and
sound the hen gag with them. They would
march with him and sing with him and vote
with him until It became widely known
that Wm. N. Whiteley could dictate the
politics of the city, the comity and the dis-
Jtrict This was before the strike, and the
Knights, knowing that he would never
j leid the business point determined that he
should not remain the great leader that he
had been.
Last spring they ran a ticket of their own
again-t the republican ticket claiming it
was Whiteley's, and thev elected their
ticket throughout by 1.000 majority.
Now Whiteley opposed the nomination of
General Keifer and favored Kennedy, but
Kennedy would have been, nominated had
Whiteley opposed him. Before Clark
county was reached he had more than
enough votes to nominate him. But that
fact counted for nothing. Kennedy is
Whitelej's man. say the Knights, and fol
low ing the line mapped out for the future
they set out not to defeat Kennedy, but to
run him behind his ticket in Clark county.
Thej intended no fusion with democrats,
but started out on their own hook. They
nominated a republican protectionist and
the democrats, hating Kennedy for the way
he hammered democratic frauds and forger
ies with his gavels last winter, 1 n o-sed this
candidate, hoping to defeat "King Bob."
Here Is the situation: Foraker had 'J, 000
majority last year in Clark county and 1.900
in the district outside of this county. At
least 1.500 republican knights in Springfield
will vote for McMillin. Whiteley will In
due 300 of his non-union democratic cm
ploves to vote for Kennedy, as will 200 dis
satisfied democrats. In the county outside
tills city are 300 dissatisfied democrats who
will vote for Kennedy. That will reduce
Kenned 's majority in Clark county to about
GOO. Outside of this county there will be
but little change between his vote and that
of ForakerN a ear ago, so that General
Kennedy can count safely on 2,000 majori
ty in the district
- General Robinson and the republican state
ticket will run fully up to last fall's figures.

James II. Laws & Co , commission dealers
at Cincinnati, to attach the goods of C. XT.
Lj nch for two claim held by the firm, ag
gregating S400. The telegram stated that
L) nch was moving out the goods of his
store In Cincinnatln a way calculated to
arouse suspicion. Mr. Martin at once swore
out an attachment before Justice Brecken-
rldge, and Constable Mohr was put in
charge of the stock. The matter was final
ly settled by Wm. It Horner, attorney for
Lynch and his successors, who gave Mr.
Martin a note for the amount It was
known that James P. Goodwin, Esq., was
alo on the lookout for rent due Robert
Johnson, but it Is supposed this matter
was settled satisfactorily. The first Intima
tion that the general public had that some
thing was rotten In Denmark was when a
newspaper publisher sent an order Saturday
evening and it was refused.
The store was about stripped this morn
ing, when a Gloue-Repum ic reporter vis
ited it Tiiere was something less than
100,000 empty pajier boxes plied on the
shelves, with which Lynch had beguiled
the public Into the belief that he carried

for his services as clerk. Porter urged a
settlement and L)nch finally gave him a
note for S 1,000, covering both the loans and
the other debt Lynch left for New York

TheGleat Emotional Actor, to Appear in
"Tangled Idles" Next Wednesday liven
ing at lllack's.
Robert B. Mantell, supported by the
finest company in America, will appear In
Keller's new American comedy-drama, of
human interest to every man and woman of
the nineteenth centuiy, entitled "Tangled
Lives," at Black's opera house, next Wed
nesday evening, Oct 13. Tlie following
splendid notice appeared as a special dis
patch to the New York Berahl:
"Tangled Lives," presented at the Globe
theater last night before a large audience,
is a new play by an American author, and
for that reason was of interest in itself.
But added to this was the fact that Robert
B. Mantell, the )oung emotional actor who
has hitherto been identified w ith leading
roles under the rank of star, assumed for
the first time tlie one particular place of
prominence in the cast to which all actors
aspire, as a step toward riches and fame.
The play of "Tangled Lives," so the author
holds, and not without reason, may be taken
as an instructiv e society drama, showing as
it does tliecomplications that can arise from
marriage sanctioned only by agreement of
tlie parties and not by the word of a clerg)
man. The plot Is good, ami the dialogue
has many passages of wit and many of
strength, so that the play will undoubtedly
draw well. The characters are all abl) as
sumed. Naturally the most attention last
night wt s paid to Mr. Mantell In the role of
Kajmond. His easy grace Is perfect for
the part and his power of expressing re
strained emotion showed itselt throughout
It is a great pleasure to listen to a oung
actor who can realize that extreme manifes
tations of passion are not necessary to ex
press the nature of an Intelligent man deep
ly moved by some inward emotion, and
in this projier faculty Mr. Mantell ex
cels. Sale of seats for this grand entertainment
Is now hi progress at C. II. Pierce & Ca's

luredTheories and Detail..
On Saturday night as tlie excursion train
was returning from Bellefontalne Will
Shanahan, the 18-) ear-old son of Patrick
Shanahau, an L B. Jfc W. section boss, wh
resides at 381 east Main street sustained
fatal injuries in a most mysterious manner.
Young Shanahan in company with two
friends named Sillier and Murphy boarded
tlie train at Bellefontalne and
Of one of the passenger coaches.
The boys remained there until
the train was several miles from
Bellefontalne on Its -way to Springfield,
when they let themselves down to the plat
form of the car, Murphy getting down first.
Miller second 'and Shanahan last Both
Miller and Murphy Insist that Shanahan
readied the platform safely. Thelrdescent
from the top of tlie car occurred at West
Liberty. Miller and Murphy entered the
car, and supposed that they were followed
by Shanahan, but when they turned to look
for him he vvai gone. They looked out on
the platform, Sut he was not there. Little
was said abouf the matter until the train ar
rived in Springfield.
Soon after tnldnight Mr. Shanahan. the
)oung man's father, received a telegram
from West Liierty, stating that his son was
fatal!) injured, and requesting him to come
there Immed ately. He left soon after
ward, and arr ed at his son's bedside only
a short time b sfore he died, his death occur
ring at 4 o'clo ksyesterday morning.
It seems tin t shortl) after the train left
West Liberty ibine persons found Shanahan
in an uncon clous condition. Ills skull
just auovean . oeiunu ins right ear was
crushed In, In I there were no other marks
on his body. Its was carried to a hotel, and
Dh)siciaus wt x summoned to attend him,
but his life re lid not be sav ed, and he died
without recov 'ring consciousness.
Much specifation as to how he receiTad
his Injur Is Indulged in, some insisting
that it was clearly a murder, while othars
believe that kis death was the result of an
accident Acthe point where he was found
the train wastpot running rapluly and he
could not thitifore, have struck; the ground
vv ith very grit violence. His father states
that he examined the spot where he was

impossible f for him to sustain
such an injury as he had by merely falling
off the (traininAs theboj; was perfectly
sober, not bing addicted " to drinkVlt'ls
sauxely proMble that he fell from the

The mostfreasona.. conclusion lobe
reached, witlfthe factsS) far developed, is
that the young man was murdered, either
having hisi skull crushed with a

sonic person on tlie train,
or being struck br a stone

seems to receive the most general credence,
but who threw the missile, nobody knows.
The entire case Is shrouded In in)stery,
which may be cleared away soon.
Coroner Wright, of I.ogan county, held
an inquest over the remains ) esterday, but
rendered no verdict preferring to await the
development of more facts.

An Kxcellent "esston noil Good Work Ac
complished The Proceedings.
George W. Brown of this city returned
Saturday morning from the session of tlie
Ohio State Temperance Congress at Tro),
and furnishes the (!i onr-ltr ia iiur an ex
cellent report, whlcli, however, is too long
for publication entire. They were in
session two days. The session Friday
morning was led by J. L. IIa)S, president
of the Blue Ribbon I'nlon of Cleveland,
and remarks were also made by O. I). Cot
ter, of Columbus, secretary of the state
committee. In the attcrnoon, owing to the
small attendance, tlie address of Rev. W.
E. Moore, D. D., on "the saloon tlie center
of evil influences," was postponed until the
evening session. Rev. A. N. Carson, of
Plqna, being present was called upon to
made a speech, and at length related his ob
servation of tlie practical workings of local
ODtlon In Georgia, where he visited this
this summer.
Before the opening of the afternoon ses
sion Rev. Elliot, one of the local pastors of
Troy, was called upon to pray. Before doiug
so, be said that he dtsired to relieve his
mind of one thing, and it was this: One of
the local papers had changed that this move
ment was started in the interest of the
democratic party, and to the detriment of
the republicans. He said that he wished to
denounce that as untrue, and if there had
been the slightest suspicion that the meet
ing was In the Interest of any political party,
he would have nothing to do with it It is
purely a gospel meeting, he said, and strict
ly non-partisan.
Democrats, on the other hand hold that
the meeting is nothing more than a scheme
on the part of the republicans to draw votes
from the democrats. The meetings have
not been v ery well attended and hav e prac
tically been a failure.
Last night addresses were made by Rev.
It II. Rust of Springfield; Rev. W. E.
Moore, of Columbus, and by Rev. Henry
Camp, the great temperance evangelist

perance hall show no diminution of inter
est Nearly. If not quite, 750 signers have
been obtained to the two pledges. Gospel
Temperance and Band of Hope, since Sept
5, when tlie first meeting was held. The
Band of Hope meetings for the children
were not lnauguated until one week later,
but have been a v ery great success in the
attendance secured and the interest awak
ened among the little folks. There has
been a steady growth of fifty to
sev ent) -five signers at each meeting
since tlie first Sunday. The pledges the
children sign prohibit the use of tobacco
and all sw earing, as well as total abstinence
from use of intoxicating liquors. A little
armv of over 300 has subscribed Itself to
this pledge, and the number will likely be
increased to half a thousand before the
month ends. Who can calculate the good
done by this movement in starting the chil
dren on the right road so early In life? Be
sides many of the parents and older broth
ers and sisters are being brought in through

interesting nature, in whicli tlie little folks

young voices, under the direction of a cou

greatly to the interest of the meet

tice. Those two "uncles' in the temper
ance work, Joe Cllppingerand Abe Ludlow,
were called out and made brief but Interest
ing talks to the children. The latter gen

bright-faced little folks. When opportunity
was given for signing, over sixty added
their names to the long list of signers.
At 3.30 A. It Ludlow took charge of the
gospel temperance meeting, with the house

An I. 11. W. Passenger Train Kills a Man
Near Colnnibas.
Anderson Nelson, a respectably-dressed
man, apparently about forty ) ears of age,
was found dead and horribly mangled on
the I. B. & W. railway track, near the
bridge which crosses the Olentangy, about
10.30 o'clock Saturday night A Midland
wild train, run by Engineer John Lucy, was
just going out on the Indiana, Blooming-
ton fc N estern track when the engineer,
looking ahead, saw the body of a man lying
across the track. Tlie train could not be
stopped In time to avoid running over the
man, who was already dead, as the train
men saw when they lifted the body that
riijor mortis had set in, and besides the
right arm was cut off and lay outside the
track. The engineer and fireman, George
W. Maginn, expressed the opinion at the In
quest ) esterday that the man had been
killed earlier in the evening by the passen
ger train, vv hich passes through here at G
o'clock in the evening.
Why the Westerns Were Late.
In an account of the false alarm of fire
Saturday night, which appeared in Sun
da)' Gloug-Rki'UIIuc, mention was cas
ually made of the fact that the Westerns
were a little later than common, the fact be-'
ing all the more noticeable in contrast with
their usual promptness. Lest an injustice
should be done the boys In the mind of the
public, it is only fair t state that the cause
of the Westerns' delay was a "green" horse
which they are just breaking in. This is
the hrst alarm at night that he has attend
ed, and tlie sight of the firemen sliding
down the pole and other strange things ter
rified the animal to such an extent that he
lost his head completely, and reared and
plunged all ov er the house. Fireman Tom
Norton was thrown headlong in the mud In
front of the house and narrowly escaped
being run over. It was tlie new horse that
caused the delay, and no fault of the boys.
The announcement Is made vv ith pleasure.
He Was a bpringtlelder.
A Zanesville dispatch sa)s that Jack Mc
Donald, a Springfield tramp, who was re
leased from the workhouse a few days ago,
after serving a term for robbing a fellow-
tramp, was run in last night by Officers
Wendell and Listen. They found him in a
car in the Baltimore and Ohio yards in the
Eighth ward. The car was filled with
smoke, and burning embers 1 Ing all over
the floor. He had ev Idently started the fire
and hearing the officers approaching, scat
tered the embers and pretended to be asleep.
