He Ooes to the Penitentiary Harry I Martha, at XarshaUtown, Iowa, is Sentenced for Obtaining Money Un der Talse Pretenses His Claim of Being the Hoted Spendthrift. LaMertha, who was Indicted three times for obtaining good and money by false pretenses oi w. w. uoout tle. F. M. Andrews and I. L. Cady, changed his plea of not guilty to that of guilty yesterday, and -will receive hia sentence the latter part of the term. Marshalltown Times-JCepub- lican. The Boone County (Iowa) News says : lne above is tne closing chapter in the career of an individ ual who for several months made Boone his home. LaMertha first came to Boone last fall as a tree agent in the employ ot the Dee Moines Nursery company. After ward he leased the billiard room in the Ernstdorf building and carried on that place for a time. While here he was twice arrested for al leged lewdness in connection with two women of rather noisy reputa tion and when he left Boone in company with these women he jumped, bonds for his appearance before tne grand jury, in marsnaii- town he finally married one ol the women witn tne apparent nope that this would let him out of his scrape at Boone but, of course, the forfeiting of tne bona coma not De fixed up in this way and had he got out of his Marshalltown trouble he would have been brought back to Boone. In Marshalltowrf Harry LaMertha claimed to be getting aid for a des titute family and in some way he transgressed the law so that the charge of obtaining gooaks and mon ey under false pretenses was maae against him and could easily have been proven. While in JBoone LaMertna made some mysterious claims to having rich interests in Pennsylvania and to a few people made the assertion that be was the celebrated "Coal Oil Johnny" wbo became famous a few years ago for his lavish expen diture of money. "Coal Oil John ny" inherited some land in the oi) regions which made him a million aire and he lost his head in conse-1 quence and scattered money right and left in extravagances and ex cesses of all kinds. As a result he soon ran through the whole fortune and then dropped out of sight. Various individuals at ainerent times since then have laid claim to being this remarkable individual and LaMertha may be one of the bogus impersonates. But he is a man oi aoout we right age to have been the famous spendthrift and he displayed in conversation such a iamiuarity with the oil regions and the people of the times during' which "Coal Oil Johnny" flourished as to make it certain that if he was not that individual he certainly bad been a resident of that country daring the time in question. LaMertha manifested great un willingness to talk on the question of "Coal Oil Johnny," averring that the subject was distasteful and the recollections of those times very painful to him. "I made each a fool of myself that it makes me.melancholy to think of it," he said one day to a Newt reporter, although he promised at some fu ture day to tell the whole story. LaMertha had letters irom a Pennsylvania ex-governor regard ing some lands and moneys to which himself and a sister living in Des Moines are now entitled and which are worth some $75,000 or $100,000. This sister is a dress maker in Des Moines and both she and LaMertha seemed to desire to avoid the notoriety of the "Coal Oil Johnny" episode and were liv ing under assumed names. La- ALertha protessea great love ana resnect for her and declared that she should have every dollar of the little fortune about to lair to them as he had squandered all of the old one. There are many points about La Mertha which indicate that he is in fact the only and real "Coal Oil Johnny" of history. If his claims were fraudulent they were certainly advanced with more mod esty than is usual in such cases. Indeed he seemed to honestly de sire to forget, as far as possible, this Doraion ot his career and it was by the merest chance, that the Newt first learned of the probabilities in the case. LaMertha's bold assertion " that he is the original "Coal Oil John ny," the famous Pennsylvania spendthrift, is only one of the many outrageous lies that has characterised the man through life. LaMertha is a bora prevaricator and preferred to lie even when the troth suited better. Than are a great many people living in Mex A J "TT.Tl n Stock First-Class and Complete.

He came here from Steubenville, Ohio, when the Chicago & Alton Division was located in this city and was a fireman on a passenger locomotive on this road. He is oi Irish parentage and it is believed that his name is Murphy instead of LaMertha. The railroad boys al ways said so. He has had many ups and downs in life; probably more than did even "Coal Oil Johnny." There was rarely an ac cident on the road that LaMertha was not "in it." In 1879 he was the victim of the worst wreck of his life at Glasgow, Mo. The en gine jumped the track at the Glasgow switch and Peck Mead, the engineer, Harry LaMertha, the fireman, and Harry Brown, the messenger, were fearfully scalded from head to foot by escaping steam. Brown died, but the other two survived, after weeks of in tense suffering at the Ringo House in this city. On September 29, 1880, La Mertha married Miss Annie Berry, a highly respected young lady of Mexico. For a long time LaMertha conducted himself in an honorable manner and to all appearances the union was a happy one. Two children were born to the couple and mother and little ones now reside in this city, and no lady is more highly respected or more devoted to her children than Mrs. LaMertha. On June 10, 1889, she was divorced from the man who so heartlessly deserted her and she is making an honest and comfortable living for herself and those depend ent upon her. LaMertha was always a liar and braggart, but his gentlemanly ap pearance was calculated to deceive. He was false to everybody with whom he came in contact. It hasn't been a great while since he gulled some western reporter into printing a lengthy article regard-1 ing his fabulous wealth and an ac count of an eastern trip he was i about to make in company with his sister. The Ledges reprinted the article with a strong suspicion that there was not one word of it true. Five minutes conversation with LaMertha would make Anna- n ias of old yield up the palm and take to his heels. City Council. The City Council met in ad journed term last night with presi dent of the Council, C. R. Lupton, in the chair, all the members being present. The official bonds of the various officers were read and ap proved. R. N. Armstrong, Coun cilman for the Third Ward, was ap pointed superintendent of the cem etery and ex-officio superintendent of the parks. An ordinance for bidding the erection of cross signs and wooden awnings inside of the fire limits was ordered drafted. The street commissioner was or dered to work under the instruction of the street and alley committee. This order means that the street and alley committee ia a Judge of what is of the most "importance. The guards at both quarantine stations were ordered discharged. Mayor pro tem Lupton will serve notices of the quarantine on the parties and they are to obey these instructions without guards.' City physician Halley was given power to appoint special guard or special messenger whenever necessary. The report of the city physician in regard to the small pox was very gratifying. The Council adjourned subject to the call of the mayor. It is a common plan for farmers to save each year their best manure from the barnyard for the garden. But even this does not furnish al wajs just the right proportion of different kinds of plant food. Sta ble manure usually contains pro portionably more nitrogen than is needed and less phosphate and potash. A change to either or both of these for- a- single year often gives better results than will follow the regular dressing from the barn yard. . Wherever there is an ex cess of vegetable matter these min eral manures will be better than others for a single year. Capt. D. . Shea, of this city, witnessed the competitive drill in Columbia Monday between the cadets of the Missouri Military Academy and those of the State University. Capt. Shea was de lighted with tbe movements of the Mexico boys and says that they show fine drill and are far superior to the State University boys. Capt. Shea is an old soldier and a- good judge in such matters. H. Berry, age 81 years; died on Youngs Creek Sunday.

Joe & Vic Barth, ANOTHER DAMAGE SUIT. Bob White Wants to Be In the Swim. Bob White wants to be "in it," and as damage suits are all the go, he will sue the St; Louis Republic for 11,000,000,000,000 on account of the following which appeared in that paper on Monday : Bob White, of the Mexico Led ger, is putting himself in shape for the meeting of the National Edi torial Convention at St. Paul next July. Mr. White was a delegate to the convention at Boston last year, and he worried the Boston- ians not a little by his wild Wes tern ways. Everybody in Missouri presumes that Bob White is a Mis- sourian ; but, as a matter of fact, he was bprn and reared at South ampton, L. I., and knows more about catching cod than catfish. One night last summer he bulged into the office ot the Tremont House at Boston, and, meeting a Missouri delegate, said : "Say, this is a h 1 of a town, ain't it?" "Why ?" responded the delegate. "Oh," said White, "they pro nounce everything hire so d d singular. Awhile ago I was walk ing along the commons and wasn't exactly sure of my geographical bearings. So I Btopped a kid and said : 'Say, bub, can you tell me where the Tre-mont House is ?' with the accent on the 4mont,' of course. Well, sir, that boy threw back his head and fairly scowled. 'Sir,' said he, 'I have not the pleasure of your acquaintance, and my name is not bub, but I feel at liberty to suggest that the Tremont mind his pronunciation, the Trem-mont, with the accent on the Trem is but a short distance away, and as I am going in that direc tion I will gladly conduct you thither.' It makes me tired. It is downright intellectual demagogy; that's what it is." B. F. Guthrie, brother of Mrs. MoBes CrawiordjOf this county, and of Ike Crawford, formerly of Au drain, also cousin of Joel Guthrie, of this city, died at Louisville, Ky., Saturday. His wife is not ex pected to live. He was worth a million dollars. Guthrie, with all the guests at a wedding, was pois oned. His death is the only one yet reported, but all the guests are sick and others will die. The spring from which the water was taken was poisoned. Jealousy may have been the cause. D. U. Mclntyre. From the St. Lou la Republic. General D. H. Mclntyre, who represents Cole county in the Leg islature and waa at one time the honored Attorney-General of Mis souri, haa been declared by a local paper to be 70 years of age. The General's friends are justly in dignant at a statement ot this char acter, lor be was born May 5, 1833, and hence ia not yet 68 years of age. He is bale, hearty and Tig orous, bat bis white hair gives him the appearance of an additional weight of years. It's the Passengers. VI can ran a passenger train at the rate of a mile fox every fifty five seconds," says an old railroad engineer, "bat tbe passengers wouldn't stand it. When I get on a speed of forty miles an hour the coaches sway so that half the people become frightened and de mand a slower speed." The Mayor's Committees. Mayor Ferris to-day appointed the following committees in the City Council: On streets and alleys Messrs. Lupton, Reid and Roden. On printing Messrs. Allison, Reed and Armstrong. ' On claims Messrs. White Arm strong and Lupton. . On ways and means Messrs. Roden, White and Lupton. On unfinished business Messrs. Armstrong, Allison and Roden. - On building Messrs. Keid, Al lison and White.

Allen, of Auxvasse, officiat ing. It was a quiet but pleasant affair, only the near relatives and a few of the most intimate friends being present Immediately after the ceremony the groom and bride, followed by all present, betook themselves to the dining room, where they found a table groaning and writhing under the weight of the luxuries of life. After the feast was over they retired to the parlor and passed the evening in gaity. On the following day the newly married couple, attended by a few of their dearest friends, left for the home of the groom's father, Thos. A. Mclntyre, where, we have been told, there were a number of friends and relatives to welcome and congratulate them, bat that the smoking turkey and other dainties were far more enticing than the dearest friend. On the1 whole it was a quiet but enjoyable affair. We will not enumerate those present, at either the wed ding or infair, neither will we give a list of the many presents receiv ed by the happy couple. May their life be a happy and prosperous one is the wish of your friend and their guest. You say you will not buy Whole Hog tobacco. All right; some one else will. live Stock Market.
