in Jul of last jear, tcstiiied, implicating
John W. O'Conner, Silas Hilly Connors,
now on trial for tlie same crime. Adams
said: "I first went to Minneapolis injury,

from Chicago, and on July S
we met O'Conner. Harris, Cook

tlie imstolllco lotilierj was talked of among
the party. Look said lie knew the sur
roundings and O'Conner said that lie had
N-en in the iostot1ict on the nights of July
3, 4 and .'. and exploded Jackson crackers
without arousing the watchman. O'Con
ner told me he didn't think the job could
he done without blowing tlie safe. We
went around one night but neglected to
bring certain kejs. We went the next
night and effected an entrance through a
window. O'Connor and I entered the of
hce, while Kinney and Callahan were sta
tioned at the front and Harris and Cook at
the rear, so as to escape detection. We en
tered about 12:30 and left at lrJO. I handed
O'Conner the drill and brace and he used
it while I held hint. Part of the tools
belonged to O'Conner, part to me and
part were taken from a blacksmith shop.
O Connor and I had drills and punches.
After blowing the safa open we did not
find tlie amount of cash we expected.
O'Connor proposed that we take the
stamps and I objected at first but finally
agreed to lake them. We got lietw een SS5
and S100 in cash and about 31.',000 worth
of stamps in packages. O'Connor, Cook.
Harris and I earned the stamps out in the
alley and put them on a wagon that we
stole from the barn back of the postoftlce.
On tlie way oer to St Paul we stopped at
a new house and got a carpenter's chest, in
which we put the stamps. Callahan and
Kinney took tlie chest to a Norwegian
lioinliiig-liniise that night and the next day
O'Connor and I took it out to tlie edge of
town and burned it O'Connor promised
to meet me Saturday night but he did not
keep Ms appointment I took what
stamps O'Conner had left and
went to Chicago. I got about SO OOrt
worth of stamps. Some had got wet
and stuck together, and I burned them. I
Umk about 34,500 worth to Chicago and
sold them to Finneane. I left Chicago af-
ti r selling the stamps, and returned again I
and met O'Conner there in September. 1

Last (Wednesdaj) evening Mr. Theodore
Troupe, a member of ttie veteran corps of
the Champion City Guard, Company A,
Thirteenth Ohio National Guard, received
a telegram from Liuutenaut Davis, who
vvas with the guard at the national en
campment in Chicago, informing lilui that
tlie company had won the liftti prize for
infantry companies and that I'.lzaSvvartz
had captured the third prize in the in
dividual drill competition.
This was indeed good news, for the boys
attended the national encaiuptiiieut not ex
pecting to taku a single prize, and some
croakers about town predicted lint when
they came in competition with tlie crack
companies of tlie country they would hud
that they did not know so much as they
thought they did.
Those w hu had seen tlie Guard drill and
who were competent to pass an opinion on
their work were, however, hopeful that if
they were given a fair show they would
surprise some of the alleged "crack com
panies." Subsequent events have proved
that that hope vv as well founded, and the
indications are that if th ( lard hid re
ceived what they jusity earned they would
have been even higher than fifth place.
Mr. Troupe received another telegram
this morning from Captain William Wag
ner at Richmond, saving that they were on
their way home and would arrive here over
the Pan Handle at lOrii) o'clock.
A few minutes afterward the news was
bulletined in tront of tlie KKrrui.ir office
and steps were immediately taken to re
ceive tlie pnze-w hinTs in becoming stjle.
The Cadet bind was secured, and headed
by the band the members of the company
who had remained at home marched to the
Little Miami station to receive their re
turning comrades.
The detachment was under tlie command
of Captain T. J. Kirkpatrick. formerly first
lieutenant of tlie company.
When tl.e train bearing the successful
soldiers for every one of them is a soldier
in tlie truest sense of the word rolled Into
the station, the bovs, as they alighted from
the cars, were greeted with three rousing
cheers by tiieir comrades, the members or
the company veteran corps and assembled
citizens. Tlie detachments of tlie company
and the veteran corps "fell in" on the open
space just west of the station
aid after three mure cheers had been given
with a will, they marched, headed by tlie
Cadet band, to their armory on west Main
street, passing through the Arcade on their
way. In front of the armory the veteran
corps and the home detachment formed in
single rank and presented arms as the diill
squad marched passed them into the ar-
In the armory tlie company was formed
in single rank, and Col. W. J. White, of
tlie Thirteenth Heguqent, stepped forwaid
and said :
"Captain Wagi.er, I desire on behalf of
the veteran corps of the Thirteenth regi
ment and of tlie citizens of Springfield, to
extend to Company A our hearty congratu
lations. This reception is but a slight evi
dence of what we and all other citizens
feel and of what they will do in jour honor
in tlie near future. While the prizes you
have taken reflect honor on jou, on the
c mipany, on the regiment and on this city.
they are but the emblems of the distinc
tion you have attained. To have been
accorded honorable mention would
have been a great achievement,
but to have taken two prizes is a matter for
the warmest congratulation. Four prizes
were, I understand, awarded to Ohio
troops, ami of these you won two. I hops
this will serve to incite jou to do even bet
ter work and you may feci assured that in
all your endeivors jou will have tli sin
cere regard and approbation of tlie citizen,
of Springfield."
In response Captain Wag ler said :
"We did not expect such an ovation as
Ills and we sincerely thank jou
fjr it. We went to Chicago and did
ourdutv an! I want to say tint every mem
ber of the company behaved like a gentle
man, audi haven't the slightest fault to

Homer C Clark. I. II. W. Agent at
lltirbln. Cur, Insane and Send. Horns
Wonderful Messsgt.
Homer C. Clark, agent at Durbin, a little
I. B. A W. station west of the city, became
insane yesterday afternoon, and was locked
up iu jail for safe-keeping last night.
Clark's case Is a most distressing and plt
iatleone. He is a joung married man of
not over -''. and was one of the most
valued and valuable of the minor station
agents of the road. Durbin is the name
given to a little station at the crossing of
the 1. B. A W. and the N. Y. P. A O.
Clark was alwajs an enthusiastic
railroad man and voluntarily did
a great deal more work
linn was te mired of him. For some time
past he has been acting strangelj. and a
few weeks a ago his wife, who had been
living with Mm out at Durbin, became
frightened ami returned to her home at
Urhana, O.. which city, bj- the waj-. is also
Clark's home. Clark had two men work
ing for him at the station, but of late has
refused to allow them to do any work, and
hs almost terrorized them by his conduct
Meanwhile Clark was rushing around, do
ing several mens' work and acting in a
manner that placed his saulty in grave
The climax came yesterday. Clark was
iu the city In the afternoon and
spent considerable time at the I. B. W. gen
eral office. Here his wild talk and conduct
attracted attention, and it was. painfully
evident that the man's mind was unbal
anced. In a conversation with Train Dls
p itcher McCarty he stated that he had
bought up all the laud around Durbin and
would sell him (McCartj) a tract upon
wh'ch lie could make a handsome fortune.
It Is also stated that Clark had parties from
Urbana and other cities at Durbin almost
daily looking at land which the deluded
man imagined he had purchased. After
returning to Durbin jesterday afternoon
Clark electrified the whole I. B. A W. sys
tem by telegraphing the following message
ot superintendent I. II. Vt ilsou at Indian
DlT.lnv OcL 12, 1S37.
ToSuperlateadentI.il Wilson
The boom is on. Adverti-e and arrange
for excursions to Durbin from all stations
immediate!-. II. C. Ci.akk.,
He also sent the following despatch to
Chief Traill Dispatcher Tiiomxs Keynoids,
at the I. B. A W. headquarters here:
Dinmi.v. Oct 12.
Thomas Reynnid.
Come to Durbin at once. 1 have im
portant business wttk jou.
H. C. Clakk.
As soon as Superintendent Wilson re
ceived the message, he at once recognized
tlie fact ot Clark's insanity and telegraphed
to the authorities in this city to apprehend
him. At 0 o'clock last evening. Officer Ed
ward Furniss, accompanied bv Clerk Amos
Miller, went down to Durbin on an engine,
and took Clark into custody without diffi-cultj-.
He was return-sl U . the city and
placed in jail to await the development of
his malady, which it is hoped and believed
Is only teuiporarj". It is thought that rest
will restore hii.i to reason.
After arriving in the city. Clark's talk
was wild and extravagant in the last degree.
His father is iu tlie city todij-, arrauging
lor fits removal to Lrnana.

I attended the Trinity ( Episcopal .church

The effect of all was beautiful and sug

who officiated were impressive ami instruc
