1'ctxkv, March 10. Slght-secrs are
flocking In lar'e numhers to the head
quarters of the waterside fraternity at au
early hour this morning iu order to se
cure points of vantage for witnessing
the great international boat race between
Koss and Oubear for 400 a side. Ama
teur scullers with trousers tucked and
wearing running shoes already lined tho
banks at the starting point, ready to see
the start and run across the common to be
In at the death, while the noble lord In his
carriage and pair, the sporting publican
with gaudily dressed wife and driving a
trotting nag, and the costermonger with
donkey barrow, all went their way at the
best pace to Barnes.
Two waterman's boats, from which
the competing scullers started, were
already moored 200 yards above Putney
ac(ueciuct, and behind them three
steamers crowded with spectators took
their places. The Thames couservance
launch was busily puffing about, regulat
ing the tratllc on the river. Indefatiga
ble police boats were directing the num
erous small craftfrom the lower reaches
of the Thames to take up positions along
the banks.
Bets were freely laid, quotations being
about even. The sporting public were
of the opinion that Ross couldn't concede
ten seconds start over such a course, and
win. Again, there was a suspicion that
Koss wasn't a stayer, while lasting out
was known to be Bubcar's strong point.
The scullers have just taken up their
starting point, being loudly cheered by
their partisans from banks and steamers,
each boat backed up against a waterman's
boat. The umpire in his launch asks the
men "are you ready?" "aye, aye," they
answer, then "go!" shouted he to Bu
bear at 1:15 p .in.
Under a magnificent sweeping stroke,
Bubear's craft speeds away like an arrow
from the bow. He is In no hurry, how
ever, rowing at the rate of thirty-seven
strokes, which takes him fully half adozen
lengths to the fore before the umpire gives
Ross the signal to go, when the ten seconds
of grace has expired. With a quicker stroke
than his opponent, Koss makes his little
craft leap outof the water amid the yells of
the spectators, and the race is fairly

skimming along six lengths ahead of his
opponent. The men look as though they
had enough of it. Bubear shows signs
of the terrilic strain by rowing ner

winner by six lengths.
The cheering is deafening as the men
row up.
Barely has such an assemblage gath
ered at Mortlake to witness a scullers'
race. The enthusiasm is fully equal to
that which greeted Hanlau and his mar
vellous exhibitions here.

A Trifling- Penalty for a Severe Crime.
Chicago, III., March 10. The Brigh
ton Bark riot case was given to the jury
at 5 :30 Saturday afternoon, and a verdict
llnding Eugene Riordon aud John Mitchell
guilty of assault with intent to do bodily
injury to some person unknown was re
turned in three-quarters of au hour. As
that offense Is only a misdemeanor, the
penalty will be fixed by the Court, and It
cannot be more thau Iuiprisoumcut in tho
County Jail for one year.
Kiordan and Mitchell were Indicted on
two charges one that they had incited
and encouraged a riot June 1, 1S82,
when a passenger train on the
Chicago & Alton lload was attacked at
Brighton Park, and several passengers
were injured, notably Judge Pillsbury, of
Pontiac, who received a bullet in his
groin, which has permanently disabled
him. The other indictment charged them
with assault with Intent to do bodily harm
"to a person or persons to the Grand
Jury unknown." It was this indictment on
which they were tried, and it wis un
doubtedly true that tho vaugeuess of tho
charge had much to do w ith the leniency
of the verdict. It would have been an
easy thing for tho Grand Jury to have
named in the indictment the persons in
jured, and thus have mado a direct accu
sation of assault with intent to kill certain
men, naming them, a crime which would
have been followed by a Penitentiary pun
ishment, as tho proof was clear.
Vice-President McMulIen, of the Alton
Road, who was prominent in the prose
cution just closed, announces that he is
not ready to drop the case yet, as he is
determined to make his road safe to
passengers by severely punishing all at
tempts to attack a train. In addition to
forcing a trial on tho other Indictment, he
will go before the Grand Jury and at
tempt to secure another indictment charg
ing Rlordan and Mitchell with burglary,
under tho statute which construes any
attempt to unlawfully enter a train to be
a commission of that crime.

and more recently wilh R. B. McCabe. Mr.

time I knew nothing of his pecula
tions. I only knew that he was living iu
a very fast way, and did not think him
a safe person to keep lu my employ.
A short time ago I went to St. Paul, aud
got wind of some of Itobeson's methods
through a prominent railroad otllclal.
N hat 1 learned decided me to nuke an
investigation, and a week ago I went to
St. Paul, taking with me a transcript of
my accounts with the Minneapolis & St.
Louis Railroad. On comparing these with
the books of the railroad company, I
found that Robeson had stolen 7,000
in nine months. The way he did it was
this: When he went to Minneapolis to
collect the bills of the house he would
take with him a block of bill-heads and
would raise the bills, sometimes to dou
ble the amount they actually called for.
If our bill was Siuo he would make it
anywhere from ,L'ii0 to $1,(100, and It
would always be indorsed by the pur
chasing agent. After that it would be no
trouble to get a check from the treasurer
and to have it cashed at the bank there.
Then he would take a part of the
money and purchase a Chicago
draft of the amount of our
original bill and present It to the book
keeper on his return. I think he must
have been iu collusion with some one in
tho oilice of the Purchasing Agent of the
road. I can not say that this Is tin; case,
but I don't understand how he could have
wurked such a scheme so long and Suc
cessfully without that person's knowb
eiigo and assistance. 1 am told that Robe,
son, although a married man, was accom

and Minneopolis by a 'di..y' female from
Chicago, and that he spent money as
freely as If he were a millionaire. He is
a man who likes to cut a dash, and does
everything with a flourish. After leaving
my employ he was taken In by R. R. Mc
Cabe, or rather McCabe was taken iu by
him, as the sequel showed. You are
aware, of course, that this gentleman has
failed, aud he ascribes his ruin to Robe

"If he has not already taken alarm and
fled the city, he is boarding on Vernon
avenue. I forget the number of the
house. He is about thirty-five years old,
and has a wife and child. Up to two or
three weeks ago they lived In good style
at the Euclid Hat, ou Michigan avenue,
near Thirtv-first street."
"Do you think he kuows that you have

"I think not. I have lost noth
ing, of course, but the Miu-
ueapolis & St. Louis Railroad Com
pany is out at least 87,000, and they are
not going to let the matter pass un
noticed. I understand that General .Man
ager Truesdell has already taken steps
towaru causing the arrest of Robeson,
and I think it will be safe to say that by
Monday the latter will be either a pris
oner or a fugitive from justice. Robeson
has not a dollar of the stolen money now
in his possession. I presume he spent it
as fast as he obtained it, and probably
was induced to do as he did to gratify his
fondness for fast living."
An Alleged Assassin.
Pokt lli nox, Mich., March 10. On
the morning of December 11, 1831, the
body of William Peillips was fouud lying
in a field two miles from Lexington. The
head was crushed. The body was taken
to Lexington, and James Dixon, lately
employed by the murdered man, was
called lu to identify it. At sight
of the corpse Dixou betrayed such
agitation that he was arrested. It
was then found that he was wearing the
watch and chain belonging to tho mur
dered man. He also had an unusual
amount of money on hand. Dixon poi
soned himself on the night of December
1-' in the Lexington jail, aud died next
morning without revealing anything about
the murder. None doubted his guilt,
but several believed he had accomplices,
and among those thinking so was Marshal
Shannon of Port Gratiot. Last Summer Da
vid Pickard was arrested, charged with
horse-stealing aud lodged in the Port
Huron jail. He was here questioned by
Shannon in regard to the Phillips murder,
and admitted knowing something about
it. He was tried, convicted, and sent to
the Jackson State Prison. Pickard was a
professional thief, and had formerly been
a companion of Joseph A. Nealey, ex
Marshal of Lexington.
and Nealey had Induced Pickard to en
gage in his last offense, at which he was,
through Nealey's agency, caught. Pick
ard vowed vengeance on his former as
sociate. Almost dead with consumption
the thief wished to revenge himself on
Nealey before he died, aud with that pur
pose wrote to Shamfbn, offering to con
fess the stoty of the Lexington murder.
He wrote two confessions. One dated
February 2ii, 1888, tells substantially this
story: William Phillips, of Allerton,
Iowa, was a cattle-buyer, operating
near i,extugton. James Dixon, of Mt
Clemens, was employed by Phillips to
go through the country and buy
up stock, which Phillips sold. Late
In the fall of 1881 Phillips went to
i nicago to aisnoso of a drovo of cattle.
for w hich ho was to receive a large sum
oi money. During his absence Dixon
conspired to rob l'hlllins on his return.
They afteiward took Pickard luto the
plot. ISo more than robberv was Intend
ed. On November 23, James Dixou hired
a horso and buggy from a Lexington
liveryman, and drove to Amador Station
to meet Phillips on his return. Neidy
and Pickard took Nealey's rig and drove
to a point on tho Ilidgo road two miles
west and south of Lexington. Hero they
secreted themselves and
of Dixon and Fhllllps, whom they were to
spring upon and rob. It was between
7:30 and 8 p. m. when the carriage ap
proached tho assassins. Nealey sneaked
out and struck Phillips with a canvas sling
filled with lead. Dixou, who was seated
beside the victim, drew a club, which lie
had concealed In tho carriage, and dealt
Phillips a final blow. Nealey and Dixon
carried tbo body ol Fhllllps into a nclgh
borh; field ami robbed tho dead man of
l,loo cash and 8"oo in checks and a
watch and chain. The murderers their
went ueross the road. Dixou left, and was
gone one hour aud a half. When ho re
turned he divided the money with Nealey.
This was between nine and ten o'clock.
i ue hour later Dixon aud Nealey placed
the lilooilv eornse nf their victim In
the buggy, and, holding it up between
them, drove one-half mile south aud then
west, where they placed it in a field.
Pickard went with Nealey's rig east to
Lexington. Nealey came to Piekard'd
house next morning about daylight to
wash the evidence of his cuilt off his
hands. At that time ho cave Pickard
i?lS3 in money. Marshal Shannon assured
himself of the truth of the confession, ami
then went to l eviie'ton xvln.ro li nr.
rested Nealey Thursday, and placed him
in jau.
Nealey Is a middle-aged man. about flvo
feet nine and one-half inches in height.
He Is stout ami powerful, and wears a
heavy sandy mustache. He has been
Marshal of Lexington, and claimed to bo
a special detective. One arm Is cut off

The Danville Riot.
Washington, D. C, March 10. Tho
Danville investigation got to work this
morning. Colonel W. E. Sims was ex
amined aud went at length Into the his
tory of the last two campaigns in Vir
ginia. He addressed the citizens of Dan
ville by request. Ho criticized tho cir
cular of the Democrats, and said every
man iu siguing the paper know ing Its con
tents told wilful, malicious lies against
the negroes. Ho appealed to the white
men and asked if it was not cowardly to
slander the colored race the way the cir
cular did. His remarks led to con
siderable excitement, and he was
told while on the platform
that .certain white men threatened to
shoot him. lie advised the meeting to
keep quiet, stating that he thought ho
could Bottle: the matter. He told tho
audienctL.it hat if the men wanted to shoot
him for anything done In daylight it was
time to aoeomplish their purpose. The
men who signed the circular; .wouldn't
hesitate to stab a man in the dark or
shoot niacin the back. "I branded the
men threatening to shoot me as cowards."
The witness went on to show by the
records of Danville that every allegation
of the circular was false.
Washington, 1). C, March 10. Sena

" The Cleanest Job on Record."
Sr. Louis, Mo., March 10. Tiller, the
express robber, has enjoyed one week of
unenviable notoriety, aud during that pe
riod has succeeded in mystifying police
and public as to his whereabouts. Wheth
er from the perfection of his plans or
good fortune, he has covered up his
tracks better than any thief ever did be
fore, and the detectives do not hesitate to
pronounce his work "tho clean
est job ou record." A very remarkable
feature of the case Is the
scarcity of clews. A careful study of his
habits and associations prior to the com
mission of the crime yields nothing as to
probable accomplices, and the man who
thinks he has seen him since the day the
crime was committed has not yet made
his appearance. The only one that has
attempted to name his hiding place Is a
spiritualistic medium, w ho made a most
dismal failure and evidently Is uot the or
gan of good spirits.
