I Dastardly Attempt.
Special to the Globe.
Hamden, 0., June 23.— Last evening
Miss Rilla Morrison, aged 17, went to meet
her sister, who had gone home on Sunday
morning to visit her parents, who live a
mile and a half east of this place. Rilla, in
the evening, left to meet Ella, and as she
crossed the railroad a few hundred yards
north of this place she was accosted by a
young man, who inquired what her name was
and on being informed said she was the girl
he was looking for, as he had just come
from her home and that her mother was
dead— died at 3 o'clock. She began crying
and started on, and he said he would ac
company her. She assented, and they
walked on until they came to a covered
bridge east of here, when he made improper
advances and was promptly rejected. He
then took hold of her, placed one hand over
her mouth and forced her down through
a hole in the fence at the end of the bridge,
and dragged her down to the water's edge,
' and there asked her again if she would sub
mit—if not he would drown her. She re
fused his demands, and he threw her in,
holding to her feet until she was nearly
drowned. Then he pulled her out and re
newed his demands. He was re
fused a second time, when he put
her under and held her for some time, and
when he pulled her out she had the pres
ence of mind to say: "There's a man com
ing." He broke and ran. She is badly
bruised and her clothing torn. She de
scribes the fellow as a young man of light j
complexion, light hair, light . mustache,
dressed in a blue suit with blue necktie,
straw hat and new fine boots. The citizens
are greatly excited, and if the scoundrel is
caught a lively time is expected. .
A Swindler's Methods.
Lincoln, 111., June James H.
Donley, who last week failed for §30,000,
was arrested here to-day. Since 1879 he
has been selling pianos and organs, taking
in payment notes bearing 8 per cent
In his business transactions he pledged
these notes with men of this city. A.
B. Roberts, a money lender, holds many
of these notes, 200 of which are fictitious
ones, and reputed to have been given by
persons in all the adjoining counties. Yes
terday Roberts visited De Witt county with
a part of the security, to look up the per
sons named, and learned he was the victim
of a swindle. He returned to this
city, visited Donley at his resi
dence, and demanded payment.
Donley expressed his inability to meet the
demands and craved forgiveness and im
munity from punishment. This afternoon
he was arrested on four " charges. He an
nounced a readiness for trial, but a continu
ance was granted the state until the 20th.
Donley claims to be innocent and explains
that 'he was duped by agents. Roberts
holds 851,000 of this fraudulent paper and
expresses an intention of prosecuting to the
end. This, with his failure last week, in
creases Donley's liabilities to nearly
?90,000. Donley is a member of the Cum
berland Presbyterian church and has taken
an active part in temperance and Sunday
school work. He gave bail for his appear
ance.
Dramatic Scene in Court.
Marshall, Tex., June 23. — The cele
brated case of Edward Bean for the murder
of Stevens, has come to a dramatic ending.
In a former trial he was found guilty and
sentenced to be hanged. The case was
taken to the court of appeals, which granted
a new trial. Yesterday, when called upon
to plead, young Bean arose and said: ' 'Your
honor and. gentlemen of the jury, I plead
guilty as an accomplice to the murder of
Henry Stevens, and simply appeal to your
humanity and mercy." The scene became
more tragically intense when the widow of
the murdered man came forward and
pleaded that the prisoner's life might be
spared. The district attorney yielded to
these appeals. The court charged the jury,
who retired and in fifteen minutes returned
with a verdict of guilty, and fixing his pun
ishment at hard labor in the penitentiary
for life. 7-- 7 7 y ; /./-■ mm
The Perm Bank Case.
Pittsrurg, Pa., June 23. — The jury in
the Perm bank conspiracy case retired at 3
o'clock this afternoon. Judge Hull's
charge was decidedly favorable to the de
fendants. He held that if three directors
knew of the transaction there could be no
; conspiracy on the part of Riddle
and Rieber; that the treasurer was
.the legal custodian of the funds; that the
notice to three directors was a legal notice
.to all the board, and that the bank had a
legitimate right under its charter to deal
outside. It is the general impression that
the jury will either acquit or disagree.
After 8 o'clock to-night the jury agreed
upon a verdict which they sealed and filed
with one of the tipstaves. It will be opened
in the court to-morrow morning.
The Pittsburg Trunk Murder Case.
Chicago, June — The trial of the five
Italians, Giovanni Azari, Ignazio Silvestry,
; Augustine Gelardi, Antonio Mercurio and
Ignazio Bova, for the murder on April 30,
at 74 Tilden avenue, of Fillippe Caruso,
whose body they packed in . a trunk and '
shipped to Pittsburg, was begun this morn
ing in Judge Hawes' branch of the criminal
court. Miss Kate Kane appeared for
Azari, Maurice Baumbun, a colored lawyer,
for Silvestry and Gelardi, and two other
attorneys for Bova and Mercurio. There is
very little public interest taken in the case.
The entire jury panel had not been secured
up to the time of adjournment of court for
the day. _________

Baltimore, June 23.— case of

John McCullough's Sad Fate.
New York, June 23.— John MeCullough,
the tragedian, wandered about the Sturte
vant house in an aimless way this morning
and it was evident to the most casual obser
ver',that he did not know what hejwas doing.
Clerk Hitchcock kept his eye on him. The
clerk had hard trouble with him Sunday
afternoon. "He has threatened to kill
me," said Mr. Hitchcock. "If he
comes near me again I'll hit him. -. I don't
care if he is irresponsible. If he is his
friends ought to take care of him. - Every
body in the house is tired of him, but the
Lelands are reluctant to make any move in
the matter." Mr. Horace Leland said:
"We certainly will do something very soon.
He is not capable of taking care of him
self and is liable at any time to
do injury to somebody. We have
to watch him to keep him
from setting fire to the house. He does
not even know enough to eat his meals.
We have telegraphed to his wife and sister
and expect them here this evening. 7 If
they do not take charge of him we will ap
peal to Capt. Williams. John is \ a friend
of ours, but we can't stand everything."
Capt Connor of the St. James hotel, who
has been McCullough's friend and business
partner for years, says that he will not take ;
the first step, and this seems to be \ the
trouble with everybody. Capt. Connors
says he ought to De put in an j asylum,
but the only one who can do that is his
wife. . MM-MmM

Mexico's Financial Troubles. <
City op Mexico, June 23.— Great ex
citement has prevailed here to-day in finan
cial and railway circles owing to the sudden
official announcement by the government of
new laws regarding v the payment of
taxes,, the cutting down of officers'
salaries and the suspension of railway
subsidies. The financial embarrassment of
i the government has been growing steadily
worse of late, and the remedy, though se

India-Rubber Land Titles Occasion
Great Trouble to Settlers In
New Mexico.
The Crow Creek Reservation.
Special to the Globe. : 'v7 r? ,777 ' : 'i7^7
Washington, June 23.— The adminis
tration is embarrassed in the position of the
Crow Creek reservation matter by the re
ceipt of . a letter from Bishop Hare, • who
urgently protested against the violation
of Indian treaty rights in the
first place. The announcement of
the determination of President
Cleveland and Secretary Lardar to drive out
all the settlers under j the j proclamation of
the 17th of April induces the bishop to
write that, while no doubt a good deal of
the land thrown open by President Arthur's
proclamation has been taken up purely for
speculative purposes, there are many
worthy bonafide settlers who be
lieved the executive order which
declared the reservation open
to be valid, final and conclusive. These
are chiefly persons of small means who
have spent their all in reaching the reserva
tion and making improvements. Then
dispossession would, the bishop believes, .
work incalculable hardships and drive them
almost .to desperation. Their case, the
bishop says, appeals powerfully, to every
fair-minded man and he invokes the gen
erous and immediate consideration of the
government It is believed at the interior
department that force will, have to
be used in such a way as to open the ques
tion for the courts. There will be no for
midable use of troops and marshals. One
case will be selected for a test 7 There are,
it is estimated, -. several thousand settlers
now on the reservation, which . makes the
question one of great importance. It is
regarded as more serious to deal with than
the Oklahoma problem. The cabinet will
consider it again to-morrow.
Clouded Land Titles. .
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 23.— "The trouble
we have over our land grants," explained
United States District Attorney Pritchard
of New Mexico, "comes from the indefi
nite boundaries which are set forth in the
titles. In no other country, except Mexico,,
and we get our custom from there, will you
find the deeds drawn so loosely. For
example, one line will be set forth
as running from a little canyon to
a hill. Of course, it is easy
enough to stretch such a line. A canyon
I and a hill, which are only a mile apart,
I may be takenas the 'designated points, or
another canyon and another hill which are
ten or twentymiles apart may bo considered
the corner. From this you can easily see
how the boundaries set forth in old Mex
ican grants can be made to grow. We call
them India rubber titles. Suppose the
. possessors of a grant profess to
-believe the more remote landmarks
were meant |to be their limits.
They go to work and obtain testimony to es
tablish their theory. They collect numerous
affidavits, which appear to- confirm very
strongly the view that is desired. Every
body knows how easy it is to make up a
case on . ex-parte \ testimony. When, to all
this evidence, the owners of the grant add
a patent from the government, issued -on
.the strength of this testimony, -7 they hold a ;
strong 7 position. But it may not be a just
one. I think the course of the gen
eral land office, under Gen. Sparks, in
scrutinizing very closely these grant ques
tions, is very popular in the territory. Many
of our people have secured homes with
what they supposed were good titles, only
to discover afterward that some grant lines
had been stretched 7 out so as to take them
in. Clouded titles have become the curse
with us, and our progress has been • greatly
retarded by reason of this grant litigation."
Couldn't Qualify.
Spec! alto the Globe.
Washington, June 23. The latest il
lustration of recklessness in the indorse
ment of office-seekers is at the expense of
Representative Hopkins. The fact that
Mr.Hopkiusis one of the last men to be sus
pected of such a thing adds to the apprecia
tion of the story. The Pittsburg congress
man, recently pressed with some earnest
ness , a constituent for the appointment
of agent to collect labor statistics. He
represented to the secretary that his candi
; date was emphatically a man of the people,
having come up from bed rock and amassed
some means through his native shrewdness.
In short, he presented the case so success
fully that Mr. Lamar said he was satisfied
and would give the Pittsburg Democrat the
place without further inquiry. Mr. Hop
kins was told to send his man
around.' 5 He did so, giving the candidate a
letter of introduction. Mr. Lamar looked
the Pittsburger over and saw he was all
right. - -Indeed, he was rather taken with
the appearance of the applicant and with
out further ceremony the appointment was
made out - and the two blank forms of
official ; oaths were • placed before the
candidate, that he might qualify in the
usual manner by subscribing his name to the
one' best suited to his record. Mr. Hop
kin's - self-made looked at the papers and
then \at the clerk, who was about to take
the jurat; After a few . minutes
he blurted out: "Look yar, can't
write." The matter was briefly reported
to Mr. Lamar and the secretary, as kindly
as possible, explained that it was absolutely
essential that as tatistical agent should be up
"the threeßs, "and then sent the self-made
man back to Pittsburg. If the secretary
thought anything he reserved its expression
for his next interview with Mr. Hopkins.
Treasury Dismissals.
Washington, June —Secretary Man
ning made a number of dismissals in the
reasury department to-day, including six
: teen clerks in the sixth auditor's office, and
: eighteen messengers, most of whom were
employed in the internal revenue bureau.
It is expected that more removals will be
made * between now and the Ist prox.
Mr. Graves, chief of the bureau of engrav
ing and printing, had an interview with
Secretary Manning this afternoon in regard
to the proposed reorganization of that bu
reau. . The policy to be pursued is not quite
settled, but it appears to be generally un
derstood that the force .will be reduced and
the expenses curtailed. *
- Who is Responsible for Hay? 7
Special to the Globe. v
Washington, June 23.— First Assistant
Postmaster General Hay is afflicted occa
sionally with the freak of asking personal
responsibility, for indorsements. Sometimes
he is stubbornly persistent on this point.
Ex-Representative Cassidy recently went to
him in the interest of a man from Nevada.
Mr. Hay asked: "Will you make yourself
personally 7 responsible for - this man if I
should : appoint ; him?" "It would be lan
excellent appointment" replied Mr.
Cassidy. ",' "But do . you know
the gentleman. ;7 - Will you r. be
personally . ; 7 responsible y for him?".
Tne ex-congressman explained that it had
been six years since he had seen the man
and that meanwhile he had not kept track
of him; But he was a good man when they
had been thrown 1 together.' and there was
the testimony of reputable citizens that he
had maintained his reputation. - "But can
you-of your own personal knowledge vouch
for his character?" ' insisted the inexorable
official. "I tell you I have not seen him for
six years." "Well, would * you h indorse ;
his note for $10,000 as' you have indorsed
his papers." This staggered" Cassidy for a
moment but he 7 replied \ ■ emphatically: >"I
would, for I know he? has property enough
to make me secure. 7 ; Now you know I
wouldn't recommend anybody I y did not
think was all right, but you can't expect not
to take the ordinary risks." .?£ Mr.' Hay
thought there was not enough certainty
about the recommendation,- 7 and said he
could not make any appointment under such
circumstances.- ' •*

Falling off in Estimates.'. • ;
Washington, June 23. The fiscal year
ends on June 30, and according to receipts
in internal revenue, customs and miscella
neous sources, the falling off in estimates
for the year will be about $10, 000, 000; $20,
-000,000 in the internal revenue, §4,000,000
in customs and §4,000,000 in the miscella
neous. The expenditures have been greater
for pensions and deficiencies 7 than was an
ticipated, so the surplus for the fiscal year
will be probably between 815,000.000
aud §20,000,000 less than was calculated by
Secretary McCulloch in his report to con
gress last year,' leaving the surplus at about
§20,000,000 instead of §39,000,000. „ j

. RECALLING DAYS OF WAR.
The G. A. E. Delegates Living on the Fat
of the Land at Portland, yfe
Empty Sleeves and Wooden Legs Gen-
erally at a Premium,
Portland, Me., June 23. — The second
day . of the national encampment - of the
Grand Army of the Republic is as beautiful
as could be desired for the great procession.
The streets through which the parade was
to pass were crowded" with people and gay
with bunting. * At 11 o'clock the signal
gun for starting the procession was -fired,
and the great line moved forward without
confusion. Not until the ; procession had
passed a given point was it made apparent
how great is the number of Grand Army
men now here. It had been calculated that it
would require two hours for the procession
to pass, but it took more than | three hours.
The most careful - estimates }- of the
number of men in line place the figures at
25,000, of which number 20,000 wore the
uniform of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic. | It appears that some commanders in
several of the departments had been over
looked in the instructions as to their po
sitions in the parade, and : those who were
neglected, after wandering about for a time,
and finding no place assigned to them, gave
up the idea of joining in the procession and
took favorable positions for watching the
marching of 1 their comrades. Entire parts
of many of the departments, including
A NUMBER FROM THE WEST,
and even the department of Maine, did not
participate *in the parade, and because of
this neglect it is . calculated that more
than five thousand members did not
parade. The oversight was due .to
the disregard of official orders that
all posts should register on arrival. The
executive ? committee declare . that nearly
thirty per cent more have come than the
committee had been notified would be here.
Twenty-two hundred tents have been pitched
with a capacity, for accommodating about
13,000 men.'- Instead of six, it has been
found necessary in some cases to put ten
men in a tent. 7 This crush could not be
foreseen by the committee, and they dis
claim any responsibility. Commander-in-
Chief Kountz was greeted with generous
applause from all- sides, and Gen. Logan,
who rode in a carriage with :. Congressman
Reid. received a continuous ovation. The
i ; general kept § his Ej head uncovered nearly
every moment after entering the procession."
The veterans received" many ovations as they
passed. Not a few were there whose empty
sleeves or wooden legs told - the tales .of
bloody battles. When the line had entered
Congress street on its way to the encamp
ment where the procession was to be dis
missed, Commander-in-Chief ; Kountz, Gen.
Logan and many other , distinguished men,
left the procession and were driven rapidly
through the streets to the reviewing stand.
UPON THE GRAND STAND
was Commander-in-Chief Kountz, Gens.
Logan, Storm. Robinson, Beal. Boet, ex-
Gov. Fairchild pf Wis., and Gov. Charles
Alger and staff of . Michigan. .. After •. the
; end of the procession had r passed the grand
stand the soldiers called loudly for Gen.
Logan, who was obliged to respond briefly,
referring merely to the benefits of G. A. R.
i gatherings. In ' the evening a reception
! was tendered to Commander-in-Chief
Kountz, as representative : of the body
at the city hall. Addresses of welcome
were delivered by. Gen. Hall, department
commander of Maine; 'by Gov. Robie, ; who
also paid a tribute to Gen. Grant, and by
Mayor Deering. Commander ' Kountz re
plied on behalf of himself and . comrades.
Addresses were also made by Gov. Alger of
Michigan, ex-Gov. Fairchild of Wisconsin,
Gen. Henry W. Slocum of New York and
Gen. Logan. Senator Logan prefaced his
remarks with a fervent eulogy of Gen.
Grant. He said: ."In ray judgment time has
hot given to any ' people a grander com
mander of men, a greater organizer of
forces, a more magnificent campaigner [ap
plause], a man with more ability to execute,
than U. S. Grant. For this country he has
done as much as " any man that ever j lived
has ever \ done for any other country.",
[Great applause.] Gen. Logan closed with
an eulogy of the Grand Army organization.
Gov. Anthony of Kansas made the. closing
address.

"Why Men are Preferred. ;. \ r y ■_. .-:
Wash. Letter In Louisville Courier-Journal.
I asked a chief of one of the bureaus this
morning why such a great and seemingly
unjust discrimination was made against
females after their competency for the
places had been so 'well established. |He
replied about as follows: "There are a
number of reasons why we prefer " men to
women for department work. The first
reason is that women are more susceptible
to complaints than men and lose more time
by sickness. ' The record shows this. When
a woman has the headache, :or is feeling
badly otherwise, you are more naturally
sympathetic with her J than you would ..be
with a man, and, if it, is possible, .would
much prefer her going home than remain
ing at her desk. Then you do not care to
boss a woman around like you would a
man. or scold her if she should fail to 7do
her work. And then there are women who
will not stand being reprimanded/and talk
back to you savagely and then subside into
a spell of sulks that will last several days.
All of this is very unpleasant, ? and it does
not occur often with the male clerks. 7 77|

PREPARING FOR THE TRIAL.
Toronto, Ont, June 23.— 8. B. Osber,

ter of justice, left to-day for Winnipeg in
connection with the : trial of Louis Riel.
Mr. Osber will represent the crown in the
case of the Queen vs. Conners, who is now
under sentence at Regina for murder. The
decision of the territorial court having been
appealed from to the court of queen's bench
of Manitoba, which is a court of appeal for
such cases, the decision in this issue will
settle the procedure in the trial of Riel.
When that has been settled Mr. Osber will
be joined by Christopher Robinson and Mr.
Cosgrain, the other counsel in the case, and
the trial of Riel before the judges appointed
for the ';' purpose proceeded with. There
may be sixty or more persons to try in con
nection with the rebellion, and the minister
of justice is anxious that no flaw creep into
the procedure.

■'■'-, Cheyenne Troubles.
Washington, June 23.— N0 additional
advices- have been received at the interior
department to-day concerning the troubles
existing at the Cheyenne and Arapahoe In
. dian ; agency in the Indian Territory, but
the I situation is regarded as threatening.
This agency was last inspected by Inspector
Gardener yon Sept. 23, 1884, when, after
stating the little advancement made by
these Indians, he reported in substance - as :
follows: - "The Indians have no desire to
become farmers or try to become self-sup
j porting as long as the government supports 7
them in idleness.,' The dog soldiers prevent
those inclined to work from working. They
consider themselves ~ master .of the situa
tion, and have defied the ; agent and
the military :at Fort Reno. 7 7 Agent ;
Dyer .has ; made a fair statement "•
of the situation, and should he push these
people in the matter of farming, he will
meet with resistance from the dog soldiers,,
and in such a case - the military force at
Reno is entirely too small, numbering only
268 soldiers. ;' It should be increased to ten
companies. . The Indians are numbered as'
follows: Arapahoes, , 2; 196 ; . Cheyennes, ;
3,769; children at school in the states, 304; [
' total, 627. These Indians are well armed
and well supplied with ammunition, and
the male . adults above 18 years number
from 1,300 to 1,400. At the Arapahoe
school the pupils number I fifty-seven, .
and at the Cheyenne school thirteen. The
Indians say they will not send any more
children to school .' until they - have a talk
with the great father in ' Washington."
Secretary Lamar has invited Col. : William
McMichael of New York, a member of the
board of Indian commissioners, to serve as
a member of a board to investigate the dif
ferences and troubles existing afc-the* Chey
enne agency, and he has signified his ac- j
ceptance and will report to the secretary at
once for instructions.
Crook's Indian Campaign.
Washington, ■ June 23. '— From Fort
Bowie, June 13, Gen. Crook reports that he
has reason to believe that a small party of
Indians are still in the mountains of the up
per Gila river. " Scouts have been sent out
under Gatewood to drive "' them out or de
stroy them. Gen. Crook says it is his pur
, pose to place troops at all water holes along
i the border from the Rio Grand as far' west
as necessary to prevent the Indians return
ing to the United States should they
driven out of Mexico. This disposition will
not be made, however, until 'Gate-,
wood reports that i there are : no
hostiles on • our - side of viV the
border, in order that the 'hostiles now in .
Mexico ' may not , become acquainted with
the position of our troops,: whom . he (Gen.
Crook) will, endeavor to hide. Cheyenne
scouts will assist in watching for the '. ap
proach of the hostiles. Gen. Crook says it
is to be expected that the hostiles will con
i tinue their retreat at least as far south , as |
the point reached on his trip two years ago,
and it is thought they may go as far as the
mountains of Sina Loa, south of the
Sonora. 9 It will, therefore, be a considera- .
ble time before the expedition can be heard
from. v -"'• 7 ■:■;.• ■„. *.- .:-•* :- • ■ ... M^y--y]
