WILLIAM H. BARTHOLOMEW.
He and Mrs. Uilllurd Conspired to Mur
der the Latter. Husband.
Easton, Pa., April 10. William
Bartholomew was hanged here AVednes
day morning for the murder of Aaron
W. Dilliurd. The drop fell at 10:4
Fartholomew walked quietly to the
scalfold, but after reaching it, became
violent and curbed his accusers and his
accomplice, Mrs. Dilliurd, demanding
that the latter he hanged. His last
word" were oaths. A tew moments
after the drop fell Bartholomew was,
pronounced dead, and the body was
tui ned over to his friends. Early in the
morning religious services were held in
Bartholomew's cell, but he refused to
join in them, declaring that he was in
nocent of the crime charged to his ac
count. His funeral will take place at
Weaversville next Sunday.
The crime for which William Bartho
lomew was executed was the cold
blooded murder of his friend, Aaron W.
Diliiard, on Friday, Sept. C. 18tW, after
having led his wife astray. The prepar
ations were made with coolness, Bartho
lomew making bold his plans to Mrs.
Diliiard. At lirst she would not listen
to him, but finally he persuaded her to
play her part in the terrible crime. On
the Wednesday night previous to the
minder Bartholomew went to Diiliard's
home while he was absent. Bartholomew
sent Jake Diliiard, the l'i-year-old son of
his victim on an errand, aud then he
and Mrs, Diliiard arranged the final de
tails. Bartholomew took Dilliard's gun,
which stood behind the door, and re
moved the pin which strikes the cap in
the cartridge when the gun is fired, thus
making the gun useless. Bartholomew
was to come after midnight and by dis
turbing the chickens make thein cackle.
This was to be the signal for Mrs. Dilii
ard to arouse her husband, tell him that
some one was trying to rob the hen
roost, and send him out to his death.
She was to give him his gun and also a
lantern. She was to -tell him to go
towards a certain tree which stood be
side the road, hold up the lantern and
look close if any chickens were up there.
Bartholomew was to be behind the tree
and he would shoot him.
This plan was carried out to the letter.
Diliiard was riddled with shot, and
though not killed outright he died be
fore he could get into the house, toward
which he ran after receiving the fatal
wounds, Bartholomew hastened home,
and next morning went to work as usual.
When told of the murder he evinced no
Mrs. Diliiard called for help, and sent
her son to rouse the neighborhood.
The neighbors came, but nothing could
Investigation by detectives led to the
arrest of the murderers. Mrs. Diliiard
turned state's evidence, and her testi
mony, with that of others, partly cir
cumstantial, caused the conviction of
Bartholomew and herself. Her sentence
was commuted to imprisonment for life,
and she is now confined in the Eastern
penitentiary at Philadelphia.
Convicted on Circiim.tantiiil Kvldenee of
Killing a Oirl lit Coufeiie..
Dkllefontk, Pa., April 10. Alfred
Andrews was hanged here Wednesday
for the killing of t'lara Price. The drop
fell at 11:011. The prisoner was as com
posed as it was possible for a man to be.
When ' on the scalfold he read the fif
teenth chapter of Komans and exhorted
all present to forsake their sins and meet
him in heaven. He then prayed and bid
all good-by, after which the Rev. Mr.
Houck pronounced tho benediction. An
drews' neck was not broken by the fall,
but he died from strangulation. About
500 people witnessed the execution.
Everything passed olf very well and
there wee no mishaps of any kind,
The crime for which Alfred Andrews
was hanged was thp murder of Miss
Clara Price, aged 1H years, of unblem
ished character, the daughter of re
spectable and well-to-do parents, resid
ing at Karthaus, ('enter county, on Nov.
27,189. Three hunters discovered, the
body of the young lady lying face down
ward in the public highway half a mile
from her home. She had been shot to
death. Clara was returning home from
visiting a neighbor family. Andrews
was seen following the girl until she had
entered a dense wood through which
the public road ran. All of the evidence
at the trial was circumstantial. After
conviction by the jury Andrews volun
tarily confessed his guilt. A story of
the heroic, but futile struggles of Clara
Price in defense of her honor, and the
barbarous ami fiendish cruelty of her
assailant has been fully developed.

a IUrpr.t tble Woman.
Ebensburo, Pa., Apiil 10. Charles
Carter, the murderer of John Matthews,
was hanged in the county jail at this
place at 1 :30 o'clock Wednesday after
noon. Carter met hia-tle-Un calmly,
walking to the scaffold with firm tread.
He made no speech, and bis neck was
broken by the fall.
Charles Carter was about 23 years of
age, a native of Richmond, Va., and a
rather good looking negro. He had a
very bad reputation and caina from a
family of criminals. His brother, Jesse
Caiter. was hanged in Allegheny county
several years ago for the murder of a
man named Foster. Another brother is
now serving a term in the Western peni
tentiary for killing a man in Clark's iron
works, Pittsburg, two years age. The
murder for which Charles Carter was
banged was committed in November,
in Johnstown, in the house of John
H. Roberts, also colored. Roberts was
married to a white woman, and his resi
dence was a resort for disreputable char
acters. Carter and his victim. Matthews, be
came infatuated with Emma Dunn, a
white girl, who wa also a frequent vis
itor at the Roberts house. Carter and
Matthews quarreled about the girl.
Carter shot Matthews through the breast
and escaped. Carter was subsequently
arrested in Harrisburg while trying to
lxrrow money to get out of the state.
He was brought to Ebensburg and since
convicted. His friends made every
effort to secure a new trial or change of
sentence. For several moutlis Carter
has been very attentive to the instruc
tions of his spiritual advisor.

Fleming received a challenge from Con

coward and scoundrel, and asking that
all preliminaries for a duel be arranged
at once. Editor Fleming, in a two-column
editorial'Tuesday afternoon, full of
sarcasm, explained the situation and de

. Uio Janeiro, March 15. --The provis
ional government having dee.ved nil the
great popular measures so long demand
ed by tho people, tho neoesuty of which
caused the revolution of Nov. 15. 1889,
such us the abolition of slavery forced
from the imperial government in 1888,
the separation of church from s'-ate, lib
erty of worship, freedom of the press,
secularization of the public cemeteries,
naturalization of foreigners, etc., is now
trying to avoid the danger and inonve
nience that attended the adoption of the
American constitution. In other words,
the men now at the head of affairs de
sire to begin where the United States
finished, and so takeadvantago of Amer
For this reason thoy have nominated
a number of well known specialists to
frame a constitution, which is to be pre
sented to the constituent assembly.
The work of registering voters all men
of 21 years of age that know how to
read and write is being pushed rap
idly, Tho proposed constitution will be
given to the press so as to be amply dis
cussed by all. By this means the
framers hone to present one just as
much like the Amuricau constitution as
is consistent wtlh the character of the
Brazilian people. It is proposed then to
submit it for adoption to a direct vote of
the people. If it is adopted the new as
sembly will lieeome a legislative body.
If it is rejected the assembly will be a
constituent body. Below is eome of the
more important features of the proposed
constitution. The preamble is as fol
lows: We, the representatives of Brazil, in order
to maintain the integrity of the fat herland,
provide for the cuiiinuiu defense, perpetuate
the union of all Brazilians, guarantee the in
dividual liberty of all, and the perfect
equality of all Brazilian citizens, continuing
the efforts of our forefathers in our temetlt
aud in that of our posterity in favor of order
and progress, do hereby orduln and estab
lish the constitution of the United States of
Then follows by chapters and articles:
The fatherland is one and indivisible,
The republic of Brazil Is composed o(
states, Federal districts, provinces and terri
tories. The government of Brazil is representa
tive, Federal and republican.
All branches of the government are ueoes-
aiy organs of the social body, but all slrill
work fur the co. union benefit of all citizens,
Without prejudicing individual liberty.
Each state shall be governed by its own
representative laws. The Federal govern
ment shall guarantee to all a republican
f.jrm of government.
The Federal government shall interfere in
the government of the states only - for the
purpose of guaranteeing a republican form
of government, the sanction of sentences of
the Federal courts and in case of rebellion.
In the last named contingency a state of
selge may be proclaimed, and the Federal
power will assume the government until the
cause of the trouble ba removed,
The constitution will make it clear
that, for all local purposes the states are
independent political lodies, fully capa
ble of paying all their expenses of all
kinds. Provinces are to lie regularly
organized political bodies tliat require
Pecuniary assistance from the supreme
ederal government. Territories are
unorganized, uninhabited parts of the
republic. Rio Janeiro and the neutral
municipality, or any other tow n and
surrounding municipality that may be
chosen for the capital city by the con
stituent or general assembly, will be the
F'ederal district. i
A Novel Idea
There is a project also to give the
principal streets of the capital the names
of states, cities, etc. ; and to designate
the squares with names recalling nota
ble events, such as loth November, Proc
lamation of the Republic, litth of May,
Abolition of slavery, 7th of September
and Independence of Brazil.
The most important event in Rio
Janeiro in the past week was the resig
nation, iu a body, of the municipal in
tendancy in consequence of a decree of
the i.Hh of February, subjecting certain
of their acts to the approval of the gov
ernment. Tho new mtendancy, whose
president is Dr. V. Do Mural, has made
an excellent impression on all by sus
pending the new code of municipal by
laws framed by the retiring board.
This code had given universal dissatis
faction. Hank, of the New Republic.
For some days past the minister of
finance, Ruy Bartosa, has been subject
ed to a storm of abuse from writers act
ing in the interest of the great banking
establishments, such as the bank of Bra
zil, the National bank and other financial
institutions. The capitalists connected
with these are appreciative that their in
terests are imperiled by the establish
ment of the new bank of the United
States of Brazil.
The fight was conducted principally
by ex-Senhor, ex-Premier and Councillor
Manoel Zouza Dntas. Datas was the
first chief of the Liberal party who made
alxtlitionisin the watch-word of the
party. Ruy Barbosa, at the same ti me,
was the leader of the Liberals in the
chamber of deputies. Zouza Datas, the
semi-Republican of former years, is the
president of a bank, nominated by Ouro
Preto, the "grave-digger" of the mon
archy. The two giants, once friends,
are for the moment bitter adversaries.
The result is a compromise. Three
new banks for the northern states are
decreed, with a capital of $10,000,000
each on for Para, Marenham and
Piauhy: one for Ceara, liio Frande de
Norte, Parahyla and Pernambuca, and
the other for Hahia, Sergipe and Ala
goas. The service of the redemption of
the public debt, paper money, is given
to the hank of Brazil and the National
bank. And the issue of paper money
by the now bank of the United States of
Brazil is limited to IvJa.lHiO.OOO, which,
however, can lie augmented whenever
the necessities of the circulation require
It is liossible that this result was due
to the fact that already two members of
the first miuistry had retire4. One,
Demetrio Ribeiro, desired to change
everything so as to conform the new or
der of affairs to the comtist theory. An
other, Aristides Da Silveira Lobo, made
himself unpopular by keeping in all
Monarchists, putting out what few Re
publicans had manaifed to get into office
and appointing in their place Well
known Monarchists. Benjamin Con
stant, minister of war, the great organ
izer of the revolution, was determined
not to give the Imperialists the satisfac
tion of obliging a third minister to re
sign. Treaty of Limit. .Signed.
Quint ina Bocayuva, minister of for
eign affairs-has returned from the river
Plata, where he went to sign the treaty
of limits between Buenos Ayres and
Brazil. For over a century the question
of the mission has been before the two
countries. Often war has been immi
nent, and there has never (eeii a time
when there was not danger of an out
break. The treaty has stopped all that.
Its advantages are manifest, yet the en
emies of the republic managed to raise
a "hue and cry ' of "fatherland sacri
ficed,'' "immense territory yielded by
the republic,'' etc.
The government was obliged to make
an official statement that they were all
responsible, that the same treaty had
been agreed to by the imperial govern
ment only a few hours before its down
fall, and that tho whole question would
be referred to the Brazilian constituent
assembly of the Argentine congress.
The treaty is almost certainly more fa
vorable to Brazil than to the Argentine
Republic. It makes a straight cut be
tween the two nearest points of un
doubted Argentine and Brazilian terri
tory , and entirely destroys three strate
gic lines that the Argentines had built
with great euro.
Our South American Trade.
Secretary of State Blaine has sent out
circulars to all ministers and consuls,
Iiossibly in South America, certainly in
Srazil, requesting information iu regard
to the means of extending American
trade in their localities. As most ( f
these officials are new men, they will
naturally require some time to get the
desired information. The consul gen
eral at Rio, Mr. Oliver H. Dockery, is
very assiduous in his efforts to comply
with Mr. Blaine's request.
All commercial drummers are asked
to give their opinion and each opinion
thus obtained is made into a dispatch.
If American trade is to make headway
in Brazil, great improvement in the
mail service is demanded. The mails
from the United States are now very ir
regular. They are supposed to come
every three weeks, but, as a general
rule, it is from four to six or eight seven
weeks before a letter mailed in the
United States reaches its destination in
this country, Tho most expeditious way
now is to send letters by way of En
Klopemeut and Murder.
