THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY JULY 19, 1881
3 ft BOB CAST A Horsethief, Leaps From a Narrow Gauge Train Yesterday, While Being Taken Back to the Scene of His Crime by a Deputy Sheriff, And Makee Good His Escap Sheriff Continues His Journey Without the Prisoner. On the evening of the Fourth of July, Bob Casteel, a young man who lias resided near Carrohon, Carol county, some vears past, stole a valuable horse from a farmer living near Carrohon named J no. C. Smith. On last Thursday mornii Casteel made his appearance at Warsaw, having in charge the horse, where he of ferred the animal for sale. fne marshal of that town, suspecting all was not right, arrested the young man, when he confessed to having stole it, and told where the man lived from whom he took the animal. The marshal immedi ately notified Mr. Smith of the finding of his horse and capture of the thief. Mr. Smith caused a state war rant to be issued, which was placed in the hands of Deputy Sheriff" H. C. Jeans, of Carrol county. Mr. Smith and the deputy arrived in this city last Saturday evening on their way to Warsaw after the thief. As there was no train going to Warsaw that evening, they stopped over night and went down Sunday morning. On arriving there the thief was turned over to the deputy and he started back yesterday evening, Mr. Smith telling him that he would go out in the country where the horse was being kept, get the animal and ride it to Carrollton. When the train arrived at a point about ten miles south of this city, it was stopped by some cattle getting on the track, and while standing still the thief slipped his hands out of the cuffs, steped out on the platform and jumped off. He imniediately took to the brush and all trace of him was lost. On arriving in this city the deputy im mediately took the north-bound train for his home and did not make any attempt to catch the prisoner. About nine o'clock this morning Mr. Smith arrived with the horse. He ex pressed not a little contempt for the deputy in allowing the thief to escape. He left for his home this morning. NUMBER TWO. The Adventures of a Stranger and His Bride in the city. This morning there came in on the train from the west, a couple from the rural district who had evidently just been mar ried. The young man could not look his companion in the face without blushing, and she was equally confused. They went to a hotel and the youug man registered his name and just below it, that of his wife. ' "You want separate apartments I pre sume?" said the gentlema nly clerk, "Eh?" 'You want separate rooms?" The rustic played with the pen in an absent manner. He looked at the blush ing young lady then at the clerk. Then he looked at the book. Finally he said: "She's my wife," jerking his left thumb toward the lady. "Oh, just married ?" queried the clerk as if he didn't know. "Yes sir." And the young man blushed and hung liis head. The clerk tapped the bell. "Show this gentleman number two." "But we onlv want one room?" said the groom. "That's all right. Number two." "I tell vou we want one room, and we wan't one alone too." And the young man looked as though ready for a fight when the porter finally persuaded him to come. The trio mounted the stairs, the groom watching the porter furtively while the bride's face rivaled a red rose. When the reporter left the porter was was trying to explain the mysteries of the gas jet and the working of the hydranx. An Invention. Owing to the immense number of miles of new railroad now in process of construc tion, the attention of all meclianics has been directed toward the perfecting of some better mode of unloading ballast than has yet been in general use. Several weeks ago an invention was shown in St. Louis that has practically solved the prob lem of quickly dumping gravel trains, either on a curved or straight track. The machine or plow made at Toledo was very good in its way, but the centre dump in vented in St.Louis and controlled by sev eral railroad officials of Denison, does the the work of two plows and is more easily worked. Out of Work, and sick with my kidneys for years, wrote Mr. Alexander Ferris, of Chenango Forks, N. recently. He used Warner's Safe Kidney and liver Care, Now he says, "I cheerfully recommend it to all persona fufering in the same way." McAllister springs. McAllister Springs is now the acknowl edged one of the favorite resorts for pleas ure or health in the state, and people are flocking in here from every direction to find all the good reports they have" heard of the medicinal properties of these cele brated waters verified ; and a man cannot be found on the grounds who, after staying here for a week is not loud in praise of the waters especially the St. Nicholas white sulphur, which is the favorite of all. To day there was a constant throng of from twenty to thirty at this spring drinking freely of the life-giving waters that flow out of the ground just at the foot of the hill. From early mora till late evening a continual string of carriage and wagons arrived, loaded with men, women and chil- dren, and by examining the hotel register we find from Sedalia alone the following arrivals for to-dav. most of whom return home this evening, while some will remain several davs or weeks : W.

New York Independent. Governor Crittenden and the Tal- bott Boys. While in St. Louis last Monday evening Governor Crittenden was interviewed bv a reporter of the Globe-Democrat. In an- swer to the question as to whether the Tal- bott boys would be further respited, he said . "Regarding their case I can only say that it has developed the largest amount of stalwart, able-bodied lying in the his- torv of criminal matters in this state. And they have brought it entirely upon them- selves. They cannot blame me if the peo- pie convict them all of lying." "But will they be commuted?" "My dear sir, I have nothing to do with it. I granted a stay of execution until a certain time, directing the sheriff of Noda- way to hang them when the stay expired, unless he received dirctions to the con- trary. 1 have no particular cause for fur- ther interference that I can now divine.'1 "Do you believe their confession genu- me? "Well," said the governor, with a smile, "it very greatly resembles Judge Finney's open letter." The U. S. government use Howe Scales.

Mr. Walshe told him to call at 5 o'clock and he then would settle with him. Dean replied that he had learned that he (Walshe) had telegraphed to the State i Line to see if he (Dean) owed anv board ' bill there. "Yes, that is so," said Mr. Walshe in a pleasant tone. "When were yon appointed my guar dian?" said Dean, at that time having his hand in his right coat pocket. Walshe I do not care to discuss this matter with you. Call at five o'clock and then vou can get your time.- Mr. Walshe then told him to go out of the office. Dean I am in no hurry about going, and I will not go.

THE TRISONER INTERVIEWED. A Bazoo reporter called on the prisoner at the jail a few minutes after he had lecn incarcerated He found him sit ting in the corridor, talking to the sheriff and a couple of visitors. In answer to the reporter's question as to his storv of the shooting, he said : "The first time I saw Mr. Walshe was during last April, when I went to him to 8l a Jou running an engine, lie told me ih1 al1 the men who run engines on his liad-to nre a wmie nrsl so as to get acquainted with the road. I thought that fair enough, and told him 1 would accept jh firing. I went to his office every day l4r :iut weeks, expecting to receive orders to taJte my run, which he .had promised me, as a fireman. He did not P1 nie ut ani as 1 was geig snort money, I began to look for a job somewhere else. I found one breaking, but no sooner had I accepted it than did he send for me to go to firing. minking i would stand a oetter cnance ol getwng promoted by taring than breaking, 1 tnrew up my job and accepted the one he offer1 me- 1 held the job until a little over a weck ag when I got discharged for relusmg ts clean up my engine alter it had heen put in the round house. Since that iiujci iiave nun iu ins iaisues omce every day. in the hopes of getting my money, but have failed he put'ing me off from day to day. To-day I went to his of fice to get my money. He told me I could not get it then. I told him I did not want to lay around here and board the money all up. I wanted the money to keep me until 1 could get another posi tion. He then struck at me and attempted to throw me out of his office, when I drew my pisttd and shot him. 1 am sorry that the trouble happened. I am twenty-eight years old and am a native of Pennsylvania. For the past six years I have been work ing as engineer and fireman on the Balti more & Ohio railroad. I am not a broth hood man, as the lodge of which I was a member, busted up alont two years ago, since which time I have been out of the order." A GOOD LLTTKR. He then showed the reiorter a letter signed by the master mechanic of the B. & O. road,in which it stated that he had been an employe of that road for a period of six years three years as a fireman ai d three years as an engineer. All of which i time he had been an honest, solier and faithful employe. The pistol with which he did the work was 32-calibre, Smith & Wesson, and is now in the possession of Sheriff" Conner. AT HIS HOARDING HOUSE. Dean boards at Mrs. M. A. Gentry's on East Third street, and a reporter went there to learn of the prisoner. An elderly lady came to the door when the rejKtrter knocked and said in answer to the reK)rter's question, that Dean loardcd there since last March, and she gave him a good name. While about the house was eaccahe and quiet and not an intent (cr ate man as far as she knew. Reporter When did he leave here? Mrs. Gentry Last Saturday he went away. R.

The examination is set for to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock. LATEST. At three o'clock this evening Mr. Walshe was resting easy, suffering very little from his wound. If nothing hap tens more than can be seen at present he will be out iu a few davs. Dean's Examination. Chas. E. Dean, the young man who at- tempted to kill Geo. Walshe, yesterday, was taken before 'Squire Clark this mom- ing for a preliminary examination. He was represented by Capt. L. L. Bridges, and the state by Messrs. Heard and Both- well. Alter hearing the evidence, the justic justice bound him over in the sum of S7o0 to await the action of the grand jury in July next. For want of the necessary bond, he was placed in the county jail. The court room was packed from pit to dome all during the examination, be friends of lnith parties. HIS DIVORCED WIFE. Guiteau's viewed Former Wife Inter by a Leadville Re- porter. Mrs. Theodore Dunsmire, the divorced wife of Guiteau, has lieen interviewed by a reporter of a Leadville pajer. She says that she was married to Dunsmire at Boul der, Colorado, in 1S78, and is now residing in this city. She showed the decree of di vorce granted in 1874, on the ground of adulten, .allowing her alimony and pro hibiting Guiteau from marrying until her death. She says he was very cruel to her from the time of marriage; that when he was a member of Henry Ward Beecher's i i- i. l.i i i j .. i-mui-mie noum urau in prayer, ana soon as the meeting was dismissed tell her oi some oi ins swindling scnemes; tnai when given a note to collect for a client he would turn over only half the collection aim repori ji was iniiossiHe io coiieci me a compolUm Cocoanut Qil, etc., is unrival remainder. While in New York Guiteau a Jressing for the hair-is readilv ab- gave an nis money and time to last nouses and finally told her she would have to support herself. She went to Saratoga and remained there two months. On her , , . t ii wfttn ww w xMf flint I i 1 iaw4 loathsome disease. Her triends discovered the fact and advised her to get a divorce, which she did. She was afterwards clerk in the treasury department at Washington, He never paid any alimony. Last Febru- ary she received a note from him request- ing permission to re-niarry. She answered saying permission would be granted on the payment of $100. He wrote again saying he had no money. He said he was about to marry a wealthy lady, and would pay the money as soon as he married. To this she paid no attention. Mrs. Dunsmire thinks the attempt to as- sassinate the president was simply prompt- ed by his morbid desire for notoriety, for which he would, she shinks, give up his life. A FINE PAIR Are John Parker and William Young, Who Were Ar rest fd Last Night. They Get a Good Doae at the Hands of the Recorder This Morning. John Parker, alias "Texas," is the name of a red headed drunken bruiser who makes this city his home. He has on nu merous occasions been arrested by the po lice for violating the laws of the city gov ernment. Every time he gets arrested he celebrates the occasion by resisting and abusing the officer who happens to nab him. William Young is the name of a young railroad man in the employ of the Pacific railway company as a brakeman. He has not resided in this citv verv manv weeks, but during his residence here has made himself anything but an enviable reputa tion by his bad behavior. Last evening found the two above indi viduals in East Sedalia, and on the out side of a large quantity of bug juice. When in that condition both are exceed ingly boistrous. During their perambu lations about that end of the city they ran across a colored lad. They assaulted and abused him shamcfullv, drawing a knife and attempting to cut him. This was only prevented bv the colored lad gettinir out of their way. Officer Meyer, who does duty in that end of the citv, was informed of their treatment of the loy. He took him with him and started out to hunt the as sailants up. He soon run across them, and they were identified by the boy. Know ing the character of the roughs, he knew he could not handle them both; so he summoned officer Henry Masonhall, who resides near where the men were found. While Meyer had gone after Masonhall. the two roughs visited the store of Mr. I'oatwright, where, because he wouldn't sell them some tobacco without the cash, they raised another disturbance by threat ening to tear up the store, and using bad language. Mr. Boatwright ordered them out of the store. They both went as far as the door, but still kept up using bad lau- guage. Mr. Boatwright went behind his counter and got his revolver, and started towards the door, when Young ipped out. "Tex as" still held the for., however, and was still there when officers Mever and Mason hall put in an appearanct, and ar rested him As usual, he resisted, and the officers had to use their nippers and clubs before he would consent to being captured. He was locked up and the officers returned to hunt Young. They I found him in a saloon, but he got a glimpse of the officers before they got their hands on him and ran. Meyer took after him, and, after a short run, Young attempted to run through a board fence. He didn't succeed, but Meyer did in capturing him, and he was also locked up. No sooner had they been locked up than did they com mense raising a terrible noise by yelling. Texas yelled "fire !" at the top of his voice for about half an hour. The boys around the station concluded that he had yelled long enough, so thev turned the fire hose on him. This had the desired effect to extinguish the noise and the water was turned off. This morning both were taken before Recorder Fraker. Young was charged being drunk, disturbing the peace and re. sisting an officer. He pleaded guilty, and was fined $25. "Texas" pleaded guilty to being drunk, but wouldn't plead guilty to doing any thing else. He was found guilty to being drunk and resisting an officer, and was fined $15. For want of cash they were both sent below. They should both be put on the rock pile and work it out. HUMAN HAIR. How to Preserve and Beautify It.

Deputv Constable Barnett arrested the notorious Mollie Lake, this afternoon at her ranch in the western part of the city, on a warrant charging her with keeping a baudy house. She asked for permfssou to step into the next room to arrange her toilet. He being rather bashful, consented to her going as he did not want to see her change her clothes in his presence. She went and he sat down in a chair to wait for her. After waiting something less than a century he commenced to make inquiry about his prisoner. He then found that she had took her departure through a rear door. He returned to the house withou her. By Request.

The past year the school enrolled one hundred ami two in liter ary and thirty-eight in music. The vice president, Prof. C. B.

Johnson js a very thorough and popular young man. His discipline and general manage merit have always received their just praise. , The fine training in military tactics and calisthenics add much to the grace and health of the pupils. lhe entertainments and examins tions of this school have always won the highest compliments and praise of all present, ami of Missouri's best educators. Wc can truly,recommend this college as unsurpassed in the state, and the president, Prof. C. N. Johnsoa,as being unexcelled in his profession. A Patron. Oh, What a Cough. "Will you heed the warning?
