In speaking ef the present capital of Missouri the Nevada Democrat says: "When a town is reduced to the extreme aecessity of imitating such ordinary arch itecture as brick work, it is no longer worthy of being the legislative seat of a great state use Missouri.

They shied away and refused to talk. On being addressed in German, their native tongue, and having explained to them the fact that the interrogator was but a reporter on an enterprising daily, tht Bazoo, and not a confidence man, de tective or pocket-picker, they laughed and said, : "That's quite a relief; we are always willing to favor the press. We are brothers Our names are Max, Carl, Louie and Kichard Lintz. We were sent out by tho German parliament on a six months' trip through the Tniled States. We are students of a Berlin university. Our mission is to collect whatever we can in your land of interest in botany and geology. We aie bound now for Texas, after visiting which, presenting our letters to scholars of that .state and making our investigations as exhaustively as possible, we go to California and .Nevada, back through Colorado and eastward. While in California, Nevada and Colorado, we expect to examine into mining invest ments somewhat. We left Berlin three weeks ago, and were fifteen days on the ocean. You will please pardon us for turning away from you so rudely. If this is the way you reporters get news in Ainer ic.i, it caps the climax. European re porters have not so much enterprise. We had heard of the freshness of American journalism and the facts justify the repu tation." The scribe gave them each a copy of "the paper published for the people now," etc., and invited them on their return to call and see the office of the Bazoo, the best conducted paper in the state. Don't Dream. Sleep, to be most refreshing, should be dreamless. Use Brown's Iron Bitters, and you will enjoy heal thful,d ream less slumber. It strengthens every part of the body, and is very soothing in its efiect on the brain and nervous system. It is the best medicine in the world, and assists nature in remov ing all symptoms of ill health. Thief Captured. Two men named E. Wilson and Burch Rutherford stole a revolver from llgen fritz' hardware store, yesterday afternoon, and at once visited the Pacific yards and boarded a west-bound freight train, taking passage in a box car. Officer Mason hall was notified, and reached the depot in time to catch the caboose of the train in which they were concealed. At Dresden he ar rested them, but Rutherford broke and ran, making his escape. Wilson was returned to this city and lodged in jail. For the Brownsnlle Sufferers. Brad. Bellaniv, secretarv of the Citizens' Relief committee at Brownsville, yesterday received fifty dollars from the Geisecke boot and shoe manufacturing company, .Jenerson City, twenty-five dollars of which were the company's own contribution, and likewise $5 from Louis Troutman, travel ing agent for Bulte & Albrecht, commis sion merchants, St. Louis, So from E. C. Waddell and $5 from Ed. C. Buckner, both traveling men. Higginsville also sent $100 to the sufferers. Marshall is raising $1,000, which will be sent in ahortlv. Need Help. Last night Miss Allie Tate called at the Bazoo ffice to state the pitiful condition of three women and nine children who are at the livery stable on Fifth street, between Ohio and Osage. The party is from Sercy county, Arkansas, and got here yesterday. They are in abject want and need food and clothing. Their wants were made known at the "Home" late 3'esterday tvening, and Miss Tate at once went out to get food for them. This she succeeded in doing, obtaining enough to last through dinner to-day. But the- will need supper and breakfast as well as clothing, and while you sit in church to-day, resolve on a good deed, which, if performed, the recording angel will enter to your credit.

Special to the Bazoo. Jefferson City, April 22. An accident happened in the family of Wm. Smith, a section foreman living in Goose Bottom, to-day. A little boy was playing with an infant child of Smith's, and, picking it up in his arms, accidentally let it fall, its head striking the floor aad breaking its neck, death resulting in stantly. It is probable that the young lady celebrated in those charming lines of Rob ert Burns, had tan, moth-spots and freckles, with other beauty blemishes. For such conditions, Dr. Benson's Skin cure should be on every lady's toilet table. At It Again. C. R. Dougherty, the oldest dairy man in Sedalia, is delivering pure, sweet milk again.

TJt Bazoo to the Front With Report of the Trial. It will be readily remembered by the readers of this paper of the causeless kill ing of A. B. Thornton, editor of the News, a paper published at Boonville, on the UUh of November last, by T. H. B. McDear mon, city marshal of thai town. The history of the crime is brielly as fol lows : Last summer McDearmon and Thorn ton had a dispute over an ice bill, an arti cle of merchandise which McDearmom was dealing in. There was no good feeling be tween the parties, engendered by the exist eace of the ice bill. McDearmon was a drinking man. When at himself ht possessed a kind heart and was considered a clever man and neighbor, butwhen in liquor and aroused his temper knew no bounds. Thornton, the dead editor, had at va rious times published articles in his paper criticizing the course of the city official and without naming the officer, characterized him as "the o?ergrown, burly and drunken policeman." This McDearmon took to him self, and meeting Thornton on the street a short time after the issuance of the paper, he shot him full of lead and he died in his tracks. The Bazoo, recognizing the interest tak en in Central Missouri in this final trial of the accused, will give a detailed report of the evidence as it conies from the mouths of the witnesses, who are of the most prom inent families of Boonville. The following uamed persons of Cooper county are among the witnesses: Dr. J. T. McCIanahan, coroner; J. M. Nelson, G. Haley, J no. L. O'Bryan, George Bed well, Jno. S. Elliott, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Thom son, Mrs Spahr, Mrs. Gault, Mrs Young, Miss Maschet, Mr. Townslev, Dr. P. L Hurt, Speed Stephens, J. T. Gmelich, W. C. Culverhouse, and many ethers. The Bazoo trusts that' justice and only justice will be meted to McDearmon in this case, and the public will await with anx iety the verdict of the jury. Jackson Will Cont8t. W. P. Jackson, who was defeated at the recent election for the office of marshal by Robt. Shy, by three votes, has decided to contest the legality of Shy's claim, and a hearing will be had at the- regular session of the board of aldermen, on Monday evening, May loth, 1882. E. J. Smith Col. Snoddy will appear for Jackson and for Shy. The complainait alleges that fourteen illegal votes were cast for Shy, as follows: John D. Russell, in the First ward; A. B. Price, in the Second ; John Clark, ib the First; Henry Mitchell, in the First ; Wil liam Mitchell, in the First ; John Wright, in the First; Robert Feland,in the Second : Wm. Blockshow, in the Second; Geo. SturLson, in the First; Jacob Pfeifer, in the Third; Frank Lynch, in the Second; John.Burkhart, in the First ;S A. Pegran, in the Second, and Jerry Crowley, in the Second. The most sacred obligation is the mar riage contract. The most sacred duly is to maintain one's health. The best medicine is Brown's Iron Bitters. Tackled by a Robbtr. At 12:30 yesterday morning Mr. Jas. W. Puckett was walking toward his board ing place, the Jay Gould house, and when along near the Eagle bakery, on the north side of Main street, a man sprang forward, grabbed him by the coat collar and said : Give me a dollar?" Puckett replied: "I have no money." The stranger, for such he was, grasped hold of Puckett's shirt collar with his ri?ht hand, aud fast. - j - - ening his left hand to the lapel of his coat, jammed him up against the wall. Then. rucKett recovering Irom bis surprise, struck him with his left first a solid blow on the face, which knocked him dewn. The vil lain struggled to his feet and escaped. Puckett walked across the street and in formed a policeman of the assault, but no arrests have been Made. The intense paia in Puckett's left haud led him to see a physician, Dr. Trader, who informed him that by the blow he had struck th. won Id- be robber, he had broken two bones in his nana. I he physician splintered up the injury ana the hand now rides in a sling. The St. louis (Mo.) Post-Dispatch at the close of a long article savs : In fact, Jacobs Oil is pushiig all o'ther remedies out of the field, and, excellent though some of the liniments formerly offered are, the efficacy of St. Jacobs Oil is magical in cases of sciatica, rheumatism, pleurisv, neuralgia, nervous headache, lumbago ami scores of other disorders ; while in the case of sprains, burns or injuries it is an v3uui pausuca, auu ior general use is better than the advice of many phvsicians.

Giving the Radicals the Sev enth District, With a Ma jority of Nearly 6,000. .Sleci.il to ihc Ba7.o. .J kfpkksox City, April 22. The all-absorbing topic yesterday and last night was Senator Heaston's bill for re districting the state, the introduction of which fwasf reported in Friday's dispatch es.

ROUSINO OLD MAJORITIES Senator Heaston gives the following as 4 1. .. I T I . - . f 1 liic pupuiaiiuu auu majorities in ine dis tricts as proposed in the above : District Population Maioritr 1 2...

It will be seen from this that he makes one republican district, giving the opposi tion therein a Majority of 5,999 over the democratic vote. The basis on which the estimates are Made is the presidential vte cast at the last election, the democratic majority given being Hancock's majority over the combined vote for Garfield and Weaver. m FAVORS IT. Hon. J. Ed. Jones, of Chariton, favors this measure in so far as the tenth and eleventh districts are concerned, and is backed by the entire delegation from those two districts, with probably the exception of Mr. Thompson, of Clay, and Hurst, of Atchison. Mr. Jones says the people of his county, almost as a unit, wait to cut loose from Buchanan county. Mr. Thompson, of Clay, wants his couty to remain with Jackson, although he does not claim to represent the will of the ma- : : ..r. .. . .1. i . juniv tu me people. SUITS THIM ALSO. Frank Merryman, of St. Louis, says the three St. Louis districts, as put up by SeMa tor Heaston, suit the St. Louis delegation exactlv, that gentleman having consulted t the St. Louis delegation before Making up 1 t . -.1 Ulb piHJl. IT IS HOT RIGHT. Mr. Dale, of Cass, was entertaining a (!rnVfl at thp f.Irv fnfrl -..ct nicrot witL M I views. He says he does not consider jrerrv- j m under ing as riht, and believes that any honest supreme otmrt would set aside the worK 01 a legislature which gerrvmandered a state should the matter be properly U ...... u . iw.r. .t . ... 1 -4. 1 1 j 1" iiwiiuL utriwic mem : ui leasi ne woum 110 1 so were he on the supreme bench. .m ( ; k a r 11 s 1 1: i: i .ci i ki . Secretary of State McGrath says his plan has been suppressed and that he merely got it up to agitate the question and pro voke discussion. LET Til KM S 1 IT TH EAISE I.V IS. Dan Wray, of Morgan, says the boys can redistriet to suit themselves if they will form a district out of the counties of Cole. Moniteau. Callawav and Morgan for I hii. He says he was raised in C V, tiu!- ied law in Moniteau, lives in Morir -tn and his wile is related to everv bod v 1:1 Call: way, and hs thinks ht would stand a sk t w tor cm r ::ig t lungs. WOULD LIKE TO FIX IT. Hmvard Parker, of Lincoln, would like to fix up a district in which he could suc ceed, and if prospects were favorable he may be salVly counted as in the field for congress high. There is nothing like aiinimg OK COURSE, TES. The citizens of Cole are ready toenderse Senator Heaston's bill or any other which will separate them fro Pettis county, the pe-plt of which they regard as mortal en emies. ALL RETIRED. The visiting statesmen have nearly all retired from the field, and many of the state senaters went to St. Louis yesterday to re main over Sundav. DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS. There was a joint democratic ranev; yesterday afterioon. In the absence of Gov. Campbell, who is the chairman, Mr. Anthony, of Nodaway, was elected chair man pro tern. The committee on rules submitted their report, which wasadopted. No other business cominsr u. the caucus adjourned. Immediately after the adjournment ef I the caucus, the committee had a meeting, I but transacted no business. HOUSE. The house was called to order, Speaker Bashaw in the chair. Prayer by the chaplain, Rev. Barrett. Chief Clerk Hannay proceeded to read the journal of Friday. A motion to dispense with the reading of the journai was voted dowji. Mr. Carleton, from a special camMitte to report what clerks were necessary far ti, eo.;.., 1 t e ti . the extra session, reported the followm o.-. 1 6 nna ..i-T. 1 - clerks, one resolution clerk, one stationery vva m, v 1 JU limit1 clerk, two copying clerks, two smooth copying clerks, one clerk for the commit tee on accounts, one ight watchMan, one messenger, five pages, aud four employes, to be employed by the doorkeeper. Mr. McGinnis offered aa amendment to strike out two wherever it occurred, and insert oie. Mr. Craamer, oie of the committee, said there had been the fullest investigation of the Matter, and no useless clerks had been mentioned. Mr. Carleton also defended the report of the committee and opposed the amendment offered by Mr. McGinnis. Mr. Wood, of Clark, as a Member of the committee that prepared? the report, was also in favor of its adoption. He stated that Mr. Cox, who was well posted, had indicated that the report called for ne more than were necessarv. Mr. Cox said that there was evidentlv some mistake abeut the matter, as he had only stated that if the chief clerk asked for that umber he would perhaps vote for the report. The roll was called on the amendment and it was lost. Aves 50. noes 70 The report of the committee was th adopted. Leave of absence until Mondav was granted to Messrs. Frazier, McManns, Nagle, Bigger and Beynolds. Mr. Carleton offered a resolution pro viding for the appointment of a committee of three to draft appropriate resolutions on the death of Mr. Harkev, of Dunklin county, wnicn was adopted.

They called oa ine governor this morning and petitioned him to send a special message to the general assembly authorizinr them to consider a bill for the relief of the tax payers of that place. Thev set forth the fact that thir handsome school buildinir. which $10,000, was destroyed bv the recent cyclone, ,uccu ucprivmg iour nunureu scnoiars 01 he facilities of eaiainr an education. Ther claim that their people, in their present misfortune, are unable to replace the building and ask that an appropriation be made for that purpose. A precedent for this was established by the present general assembly at the regular session, at wnich they made an appropriation for Marsh field and the constitutional provision relat ing for appropriations for corporations seems to be especially designed for such cases. The governor took the matter under advisement, but as it is known that he is anxious to avoid the necessity of sending a special message to the assembly, it is hardly probable he will consent to do so in this case, unless other matters of sufficient im portance should come up to demand a special message, at which time he might be induced to include ths matter thereni. Amoug the measures which may demand a special message are the HANNIBAL A ST. Jos El II RAILROAD CASK and the representative reapportionment. In the former case there has been no ap propriation to enable The t:tte to continue 1 it iiriitJnn ;ini u rmw!fltfr;i ttio mnir n-Ill ! be needed, it mav come up. As to the representative reapportionment. that would doubtless result in a loss of one representative each to six counties, and only a gain of one each in three counties, sw that the membership of the house would be reduced to 140. The counties which would lose a repreeutative are Franklin, Lafayette. Mercer. Marion, Pike and St Louis city. The counties which would gain a representative are Pettis, Nodaway and Jasper. As the six which will be lost are democrats, and only two of the three to be gained could be counted on by the democr n a n,t n that could, it wouldlbe 1 considered poor policy for them to call for l a special message on this matter. d j Mr. Dawson, of New Madrid, chairman t of the house ways and means committee, introduced an appropriation bill to PAY THE EXPENSES OF THE EXTRA SESSION this morning. The bill provides for an appropriation of $30,000 for the payment of the contingent expenses of the xtra session. Ex-Senator Sam Major arrived lat night and occupied his old seat in the house this morning. It is not known whether he has his congressional district mapped out or not. Senator Rouse is drawing a reappor tionment hill. It is said the senator may be a candidal for congress this fall. Mr. Houston, of Pettis, wrote out the heading for a subscription list for the Brownsville sufferers this morning, and started it with a liberal contribution, but was called out by tht committee from Brownsville for a consultation on th bus iness which brought them down, and did sot have a chance to submit it to the members. - - Mrs. Nancy Harnian. of Mansfield, O. writes : "I have been under the care of a physician during the past seven year?. Sometimes I would feel better, and then again I would feel worse. The past two years nothing seemed to help me. About two months ago my doctor seemed to "be getting discouraged, and I lay completely bed-ridden. I grew very nervous ; the least noise gave me great irritation. The doctor, I suppose more to get me off his hands than anything else, as he said T would never leave my bed, told me I might try Brown's Iron Bitters, at the same time remarking, 'It was a good tonic and would help to keep me alive.7 I have used the remedv about two months, and t 1 a. l-ji i- ? nave oeeu oui ni oeu neariv two weeKS ! 1 u 1 u . u 1 " t. 1 . and now help about the house.

Caro line Doyle, wife of Stephen DoyU, on Ohio street, in a state which betrayed the un balanced condition of the lady's Mind. She carried a babe in her arms and was evi dently wandering aiMlesaly around the town. Her husband, who works out in the shops, on returning hme was told that his wife had left the house. H at once set out to search for her. He found her near Third street on Ohio, and calling to his as sistance Officers Meyers aud Barnett, the unfortunate woman was taken home.
