VOORHEES'S CRIMINAL RECORD. nil Participation In the Conspiracy Against the Greenback In 1802. Wasuisoton, Aug. 9. Senator Voor hees's speech opening tho campaign In In diana is receiving some attention from tbe republicans in the east, especially that part in relation to the greenback question, in which he said: "Tbe republican conspiracy to fasten the fangs of tbe money power in the struggling body of American labor and to enable gi gantic usury and legalized robbery to suck tbe blood of every American Industry, took Its first great step when, in authorizing legal tender currency In 1862, the green back, tbe Immortal and glorious greenback, was discriminated against and degraded In the money markets of tbe world by being made non-receivable for duties on imports and for interest on the bonded debt of the United States. In all the annals of nations no financial measure was ever more will fully wlcied In conception and design nor more far reaching, oppressive and destruc tive to the rights of labor In its results that, this." Mr. Yoorhees was a member of the house of representatives at the time to which he refers. So, also, was Edward McPherson, who is now secretary of the republican congressional committee. To a Tribune correspondent Mr. McPherson to day said: "I was amazed when I read that passage from Senator Voorhees's speech. As a member of the house in lsfla he voted against the Stevens amendment to tbe bill to authorize the Is&ue of greenbacks. That amendment made the greenback a legal tender for all purposes, Including customs duties, interest on the public debt and for all debts owing by the States to anybody within the United States. The amendment was adopted, and then Yoorhees voted against the bill, along with Pendleton, Vallandigham, S. S. Cox, Holman and most of the other democrats. "The senate, a few days later, passed a legal tender bill which was in many re spects the same as the house bill. When the subject again came before the house, and tbe senate amendments were consid ered, Mr. Voorhees voted for the proviso requiring interest on the public debt to paid In coin. That amendment was carried by a vote of 88 to 55, and 42 of the affirmative votes were cast by democrats, while 53 of the negative votes were cast by republicans. In other words, the 'republican conspiracy to degrade tbe Immortal greenback' suc ceeded by the votes of 42 democrats, in cluding Voorhees, and, 46 republicans, while 53 republicans and 2 democrats tried to prevent It. Mr. Voorhees evidenUy has forgotten the part he took in the 'conspir acy,' or else he has changed bis mind. Bat that Is immaterial. He was one of the criminals in 1863 whose crime he so vigor ously denounces in 1SS8." MICHICAN REPUBLICANS. An Harmonious Convention and Another Notice to Graver to Move. Detroit, Aug 9.

Dressed Like a Boy, and in Company With Her Lover, She Accomplishes a Bold Series of Thefts. The Thieves Overhauled Near llalnbrldge by MnnOial Way and Lodged In the Clinton County Jail A Pretty Story of Crime and Adventure. Marshal John Way, of South Charleston, is In the city today (Thursday) and has about tbe prettiest piece of actual romance that a reporter ever stumbled upon. It Is a well connected story of love, crime, sen sation, flight and capture, and would work up well In wood-cuts. Marshal Way has just "returned from a trip cf Bainbridge, where he took a lively part in the capture of two of the boldest and most successful horse thieves that have worked central Ohio for some time. Tbe thieves now languish In jail at Washington, awaiting the return of Judge Doane for their preliminary hearing. One of the thieves is John Perry, who lives nearBainbrldge, and is an ordinary looking young man. The other, and evidenUy the chief mover In the enterprise. Is Retta McGee, a young and decidedly pretty girl, who entered into the thieving operations with a gusto. Clad in boys' clothes, with her hair cut short aud the bold, insouciant manner of a gamin about her, she had no difficulty whatever in passing herself off as a boy. The two were out on a "time." and for two weeks made things wbirL It Is evi dent tbat the girl's virtue is not of the highest character something nee mat or "Cigarette" In one of Oulda's hectic novels. In brief, the two were going it together on a touring trip and camping out together. Incidental to this journey they got away with two or three horses and a buggy In graceful shape. The girl's home is at present near Cam bridge, but she used to live near South Charleston. The start was made from near Sabina. They bad an old plug of a horse, and the girl stole a good piano-box buggy from an old gentleman named Cline, who had raised her and brought her up, until she beepme so tough that he bad to cut her loose. From Sabina they proceeded to Xenia, O., and leaving their old plug of a horse, stole a handsome gray from a man named Lawson. From Xenia they went by easy stages to Charleston, and store a handsome and valuable black mare belong ing to a man named James Vince. The horse was stolen from tbe pasture, and Ihe Xenia gray horse was In turn abandoned and left by the roadside, where It was found next morning by Mr. Vince. On Saturday Constable Os borne arrested the two worthies on suspicion. They were encamped near Sa bina, in the woods, and were having a great time. As soon as Marshal Way learned of the arrest he at once recognized the parties by description as tbe one who had made the haul at Charleston. The parties made a full confession. Perry Insists that the girl had nothing whatever to do with tho stealing of the horses tbat he got away with them himself without her assistance. But ho says the girl was the one who stole tho bnggy. Old man Cline, who raioed her. thinks the world' of the girl, and does not want to prosecute her. She formerly worked for Bob Femawer, near South Charleston, and Is only 10 years of age. WHO OWNS THE HORSE? Two Claimants Appearing for the Horse Unfit. d on. At the first annual ball by the Springfield Bar-Tenders Association, at Anzinger hall, Tuesday evening, a horse was chanced off by coupons sold with thiekets. Tbe horse was the property of Harry Rbone- mus, one of the projectors of the ball, and was quite a little roadster. After tbe ball It was announced that "Long Louie" Lul- bel, the saloonist west of the city on the national road, had drawn tbe horse with ticket No. 175. Next morn ing early, the horse was delivered to him at his place, and lie treated his friends all around on tho strength of his good luck. Lulbel is a deserving man of very modest means, and no one was sorry to see him win the animal. But the end is not yet Mark Fahey. a young man clerking at KInnane, Wren & Co-V, now comes to the front with another ticket, No. 175, and claims tbat the horse belongs to him by all rights. His ticket seems to be regular and It was duly pur chased and paid for from llr. Dick Hughe?, another one of the proprietors of the ball. A hot fight seems In prospect over the pos session of the horse, and both men are claiming it hotly and with vigor. Lulbel enjoys the advantage of present possession, The question is: What kind of manage ment was exercised to permit of such a mistake, or has there been deliberate crook- edne&s. ON TWO CRAVE CHARCES. Nleh. Nemsgern lacked Up for Kmbes. xlement and False Pretenses. On a state affidavit, charging tbe accused with embezzlement and false pretenses. Officer Nicklas arrested Nicholas Nemsgern. a well-known German, living near Lagon da, last night and locked him up In jail on the charges named. The affidavit under which he was arrested was made out by J, K. Mower, esq., as attorney for the com plainant Henry Megan. The arrest grows out of the sale of four acres of land in Sprinfieid township, this county. Nemgem, it is charged, sold the property to Regan, claiming tbat It was unincumbered, whereas, as alleged, there was a mortgage of S453 50, which Nems- gern was to have paid off out of the pro ceeds of tbe sale, but which be did not do, appropriating the money Instead to his own use. The sale was made for a Mrs. linker. Nem.gera is densely German and claims he could not understand tbe matter. Tbe af fidavit makes two separate counts agilnst him. Cltl sens' Meeting.

A queer character Is in the city for a day or two one of the most noted gamblers In the United States. He is George H. Deval, aud his hair is turning white, for he is no spring chicken by about sixty years. But be is still as thoroughly one ot the boys as he ever was, and Is regarded as one ot the slickest men in the country.

He was exhibiting some of his three-card mnnte accomplishments In a Market street resort last evening, and stumped the best of them. Snorting men present say that he Is the cleverest thrower of the three cards they ever saw. Be Is indescribably dexterous, and yet be assumes an appearance of awkward ness which Is very reassuring and costly to the victim. Deval is the author of a book on his own life. "Forty Years a Gambler on the Mis sissippi," and is a man of much general in formation and intelligence. He has been In hundreds of thrilling adventures where bis life wasn't worth a farthing at the turn of a featherweight; has won and lost mil lions of dollars at every game of chance ever invented; has played poker with the Indians, faro with the Mexicans, and "grab-for-your-Ilfe" with the Chinese. He is a keen reader of character and human nature and an Interesting man He has been the world over and was born in Marietta, O. THE CRAIC SUICIDE.
