THE SEDAXiIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, MAY 16, 1882.
GLORY, GOVERNOR ! Was Heaped Upon You by the People of the Qeuen City Last Night. A Large and Enthusiastic Meeting, at Which the Gov ernor Was Endorsed A Set of Ringing Resolutions Passed, Amid the Great est Applause. Friends of the Dead Bandit Sat Down Upon, and They'll he Heard of No More. Pursuant to a call published only two days ago, a large and enthusiastic meeting was held at the City hall, last night, for the purpose of endorsing Governor Crit tenden's action in punishing criminals and wore especially in the removal of the notorious bandit, Jesse James. At about half-past seven o'clock the Sedalia Silver Cornet band made its appearance on Ohio and Second slreets, where two or three patriotic airs were played, after which a majority of the assembled crowd adjourned to the hall. A Bazoo reporter was among the first to put in an appearance, and closely ob served those who entered, to discern the political complexion of the meeting which was to endorse the governor. As they ar rived it was noticed that they were demo crats and republicans alike, all equally interested in the work before them; and by a quarter after eight o'clock the hall was filled, many being unable to find seats, the following named gentleman being among those noticed by the Uazoo man: John Burkhart, Bob Reese, Henry Lamm, Capt. J. W. Mills, Mayor Mefserly, Cyrus B. Goodrich, Mort A thy, Mat Zener, John Brickel, 'Squire Webber, W. E. Lashmet, Geo W. McLaughlin, Bob Morrow, T. J. Fry, B.H.Moses, A. C. Brandon, Frank Sampson, J. G. Tesch, A. S. Fernald, J. W. Kennedy, Abe Labngh, J. G. Sloane, C. C. Parker, "C. Foam" Spmy, Mr. Dele mater, H. C. Levens, R W. Barnett, Fred. Guenther, Prof. North, Alderman Landes, Tt. J. Shy, Ed. E. Earle, J. T. Johnston, Peter KuIih, D. H. Smith, O. A. Crandall, Col. Dean, Jas. Glass, A P. Es penschied, Jas. Kyan, Major Beck, J udge Durham, Frank Holland, John Arnold, Sheriff Conner, Henry Meuschke and many others. At half-past eight o'clock John Burk hart took the floor and said it devolved upon him, as one of the instigators of the meeting, to call it to order, and he would nominate Mr. A. S. Fernald as chairman. The motion was seconded and carried, and Mr. said : Fernald, on taking the chair, Grntlemen 1 tkank you for the honor conferred. The selection of a secretary being next in order, Mr. Burkhart nominated John L. Martin, who was chosen. The chair stated the object of the meet and said the first thing in order was the selection of a committee on resolutions. Capt. J. W. Mills moved that the chair appoint a committee of five, which mo tion was seconded and carried, and Mayor Messerly, John Burkhart, Cyrus Goodrich, D. H. Smith and F. A. Sampson were ap pointed as said committee. The committee retired to transact the work before it, when calls of "Martin 1" "Martin !" "Speech from Martin !" rang out throughout the hall, when that gentleman arise and said: Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen: I am no orator, ana I know there are voices here more eloquent than mine; but this I may say, and that, too, without boasting or egotism, that there are none here whose hearts beat with more loyalty to Governor Crittenden, as he stands as the representa tive of law, order, and a progressive civili zation, than does mine. Sir, there is much cause for congratulation over the death of that chief of robbers and murderers, Jesse James, and we, to-night, have met for the purpose of giving expression of our grati tude to the man who has so signally wiped a stain from the escutcheon of this grand state, by effecting the death of the man who has so long been a blot and a curse upon this commonwealth. Missouri has been foully aspersed, and our own city has been stigmatized by the act of men, no doubt of kindly hearts, but certainly of misguided judgment, and it behooves us to protest against these aspersions and to give vice to the fact that Sedalia is not in sympathy with lawlessness and crime, nor criminals. Every man who loves the good name of this state, every man who desires the city to be the future capital of the state, every lover of law and peace and safety to life and property, ought to be here to-night and by his pres ence say to those who would accuse us of giving countenance to the acts oi those who have so long been a disgrace to civilization, that Sedalia does not, will not, shed one tear over the giave of these men nor of their leader, Jesse James We meet, I trust, in that spirit which has 'malice to ward none ; charity for all,' but we are here for the purpose of boldly and em phatically endorsing that brave man, Thomas T. Crittenden. Let the resolu tions to be adopted give forth no uncertain sound. Let it be published to the world that Sedalia stands bv her governor and purns that maudlin sentimentalism which wouia neap nowers upon lit the grave M t robber and a murderer. At the conclusion of Mr. Martin's speech he was greeted with loud applause, show ing thai This remarks were warmkenWd 1 t i i nv live W j"va sir "Mr. O. A. Crandall was called for. He j hesitated a moment, but finally came for wrard and said substantially as follows: IR. PRESIDENT GENTLEMEN: I knew nothing of this meeting until 1 came up town this evening and heard the music, aud naturally enough I followed the band. Since my arrival here I have learned the object of the meeting. Accord ing to my judgment, the governor needs no endorsement at our hands. I have known him intimately for twenty-five years, and never knew him to do anything but what he considered his duty. I felt assured when he took his seat that he would do his whole duty, aud I am pleased to say that I During his to- brief administration he has done more I ward suppressing lawlessness than all S JrJ"r the the this i he is entitled to commendation. But ! while endorsing him, I have no ill feeling against those who have expressed different i opinions. Tr e state has been materially injured for the past fifteen years by the spirit of lawlessness which has existed nere, ami tne name oi roouer state nas oeen ' applied to us throughout the length and breadth of the land, causing us to be ' laughed and scoffed at abroad. There has ' been too much crime for the good of the community, and it has all had its ehect on the state, which has lost millions oi dol lars by this course. 1 feel grateful at the ! course pursued by our governor, and it should bn approved by every citizen of the I state. Sedalia should be placed upon record for or against the action of the gov- i - - ernor i course ihis being made necessary by the pursued by some of our leading papers. At intervals Mr. Crandall was liberally applauded, and at the close Mr. Henry -Lainni was called for. lie stepped to the front and entertained his hearers with a brief, but sarcastic, sieech, about asfol - lows: Mr. President and Gentlemen : -My views are pretty well known on the subject for which tiiis meeting was called. We met here not to criticize the actions of other citizens. lhe subscription paper w Inch was circulated here for the benefit of Jesse James' widow may have been misunder stood, or there may not have been any thing of the kind. The report may have been circulated merely for a ioke. If not . - . wr ii jimr, uie Miu.scnirion wa, prouaoiy . I- . . 1 .. 1 I.I intended tor the relief of a very worthy woman. Heretofore Ue has been supported by subscriptions levied n foreigners pas sing through the state, but the action of Sedalia friends will relieve thestate of fur ther aid in this direction. Sedalia's gen erosity, gentlemen, should be commended. Continued applause. Befoie taking his seat, Mr. Lamm said he would like to hear from Capt. Mills, who looked as though he would like to give expression to his thoughts on the sub ject under discussion Calls were made for Mr Mills, but he Col. Richard respectfully declined, and Bitter made the closin ing speech, saying: ' ND Gkntlkmen: Asl Mr. President a I understand it. this meetinr has been called to let the world know that we are in favor of law and order. As Mr. Crandall stated, Missouri has a bad name abroad. Why, even in Texas they throw it up to the Missourians that they hail from the robber state. Such be ing the case, it is certainly time for us to straighten .up. There has been a lack of enforcement of the laws in Missouri, and even right here at home we have witnessed it We can take the history of Pettis county for fifteen years back and find things that should make us blush. Of t course, though, none of these acts were as bad as those committed by Jesse James and the Younger gang that gave the state a bad name. Why, I have heard men denounce the manner in which Jesse James was removed, and they even went so far as to boast that they could have cap tured him alive, and his killing was need less. Certainly they mist be rich and do not want money, else they would have taken him and secured the large reward offered for his arrest Even in Europe the people of Missouri are called outlaws, and all because the James and Younger tribe were shielded here. The subscrip tion paper in Mrs. James' favor has prob ably been misunderstood abroad. If Mrs James needed assistance, I might donate to her on behalf of humanity, but not be cause she was the widow of Jesee James. I am in favor of passing ringing resolutions here to-night endorsing the governor. It is high timeMissouri should redeem herself. The James and Younger boys went to Texas once, but were run out f there, and at ance returned to their old haunts in Missouri. I am glad to see this large turnout to-night, and am also glad we have a governor who will, at all times, enforce law and order. At the conclusion of Mr. Kilter's speech the committee on resolutions reported the following, and they were read by the seere- larJ : i AVhereas, The state of Missouri and ! other sLster states have been the scene of the depredations of a band of desperadoes, cut-throats, train robbers, thieves and mur derers, whose presence has been an annoy ance and a curse to these communities, and causing their fair name to bp brought into disrepute by their deeds of crime commit ted on the peaceable citizen and the travel er passing through their domain ; and Whereas, These lawless men have set at defiance the laws of the land, while eluding its officers, and have violated every principle of right, imperiling the lives of their victims and robbing the honest citizen of the fruit of hislabor; and Whereas, Repeated and vigilant efforts have been made by the authorities of the states in which these depredations and crimes were committed, to capture the leaders of these desperadoes, but without success until the present governor of this state, Thomas T. Crittendn, came into office, and by his prompt, brave and un flinching pursuit of these desperadoes has succeeded in landing some ot them in the peuitemtiary and most effectually closed I ' the career of the acknowledged leader of have Dot been disappointed. the bandits, Jesse James, by "removing" malady never stands still ; it is con him to a realm from whence there is no I slantly growing worse aud more dread return; therefore, be it ((ui in all its phases. JLast and most Resolved, That we, the citizens of Seda-! dreadful before him stands the awful lia, in mass meeting assembled, do most phantom of insanity. Sleeping or emnkatieallv endorse the action of T4nv- I Waking he feels that it is the, e, and ernor Crittenden in ridding the state of the eurse and terror in the person of Jetse James. T i 1 rni - i I iiiaiiauwii; the "mva" f thw notorious uuttun,iui governor ua acuuiupusiieu a grand and noble work for Missouri, and that we call upon him, and those acting under him, to continue the good work un til all fcuch villains shall fear to step foot within the borders of the state, and learn that law and order rule in this grand com monwealth. Resolved, That we in no sense sympa- thize with that sentiment whichwhile pretending to plead for justice, would make gods and heroes out of those who nerer showed justice or mercy t others, but whose hands were crimsoned with the blood of victims foully murdered, and whose hearts were steeled to the crv of read a letter 1 received pity ar.d the groans of widows and orphan I ihev robbed of husbands and fathers. Resolved, That as democrats we tender, our political, and as republicans our moral, work he has done, and that a copv of these niil ill inns h fnrw:irdnd t.i him nml that. they be published in the papers of the City.

On motion they were unanimously adopted and the meeting adjourned. .St. Jepli Saturday PeriHK-ratt Au-j. 27, 1SRI. A Friend to the Friendless. Sorrow and sickness is the too com mon heritage of humanity, and when we see how little is done to alleviate the miseries of the great mass of hu- inanity we are almost out of patience witli life. Even when the intentions are best, ignorance is prone to bid the afflicted "suffer and be strong," instead of "ministering to the mind diseased," or laying a hand of healing on the poor tortured body. j Ah ! when Science and Philanthropy, j with love and svmpathy and skill, , COiile to the aid of the sufferers, they fWl :ls if the angel of annunciation hail ' drawn near.

With such incontrovertible proof of the beneficent nature of the remedy, it is not strange that an editor, always solicitous for an accurate knowledgeOf what could benefit the world in general, should take the earliest opportunity of visiting the inventor and proprietor of the medicine at the World's Epi leptic Institute. We found the doctor in his elegant private oflioe busily engaged in super intending the gentlemen whose busi ness it is to attend to the details of the immense correspondence which is a natural result of his wide-spread repu tation. On making known our wishes, he very kindly accompanied us in our tour of inspection through the magnificent building and grounds. Almost as soon as we entered the office our attention was arrested by a wonderful collection of photographs, numbering somewhere in i he thousand. All nations, ages and stations were represented. The elegant carte of the society leader was side by side with the picture of the humble atisan ; innocent childhood and withered old age showed in their counterfeit pre sentments the gratitude they could not speak ; doctors, lawyers, ministers of the gospel, soldiers, laborers, plain mothers of families, haughty children of wealth, rich and poor, high and low, black and white, all were represented. It reminded me of the miracle cures of Europe, only instead of the crutches, bandages, gold, silver and wax images of the recuperated pilgrims, left before theshrineof the miracle worker, Dr Richmond has as testimonials the pictures of his deeply grateful pa ients. 'You must feel very happy, doctor, when you look at this collection," we said. "Ah! yes," said the doctor pleasantly, 'but if you like my Art Gallery, what would vnn iiv tn mv Tjihrrv" u ti1P wrfv tn thp npvt :ay to tne next apart ment, and we followed, expecting only tosee perhaps one bookcase filled with dusty tomes of abstract science. In stead, the walls were lined with very handsome bookcases, containing over one hund red thousand unsolicited tes timonials from those whom theNervine hadcured. "How wonderfully fortunate as well as talented you are," we exclaimed in amazement. uThe Nervine has prov ed a perfect gold mine." The doctor looked at us reproachfully. "I am not one to underestimate the value of wealth," he answered, "for I have known what it is to be without it. but what is the mostcollossal fortune that was ever in the grasp of mortal man in comparison to the good my remedy is doing ? Picture to yourself, if you can, what tmist be the feeling of an epileptic. Think of him with his dreadful disease so long pronounced in curable.

In appearance he has so changed that none of his old friends and acquaintances would recognize him. His beard has grown out all over his face, ami is long, shaggy and snow white. His hair is rapidly becoming in the same condition, and he has the pitiful appearance of u poor, stricken and prematurely old man. His large aud beautiful eyes stare at the visitor in a wild, questioning sort of a way that causes one to wince under the gaze. He spends most of his time at prayer and loud exhortations, as his malady has taken the religious turn. Several weeks ago Wakefield expressed the greatest desire to become a member of the church, and to that end he held frequent conversa tions with Rev, W. P. Pal more, the prisou chaplain, who is pas tor of the Methodist Episcopal church south. Finally. "Wakefield determined to become a Methodist, but insisted immer sion was the proper mode of baptism, and he was accordingly immersed. Since that time he talks of nothiug but religion, and on the slightest occasion he will full upon his knees and deliver the most eloquent prayers in the most dramatic attitude. The other day Lieut. Gov. Campbell and a friend visited the penitentiary. Wake field was sitting in the hospital yard with lno:iti drawn ilfiwnnvpr 'i cvk Visit ors looked at him through the windows of! the penitentiary office.

In last Sunday's Bazoo a couple of scan dal cases at Windsor were ventilated, in one of which Mr. AI. McComes and his wife figured fiuite prominently. In speak ing of them it was said that Mrs. McComes had admitted being criminally intimate with a young man named James Burton, and that a separation had ensued between her and her husband, but on her promising to do better in future, he had forgiven her and they were again living together. This, it seems, was an error, as the following let ter received this morning from Mrs. McComes proves : Windsor, Mo., May 8. Editor Bazoo: There was handed to me, this morning, a copy of the Bazoo treating on the Windsor scandal, and in which I find my own name pretty thor oughly mixed up. I feel it a duty "to my self and my friends to say a word or two in my own defense. The paper states that T, a wretched woman, on bended knees, ac knowledged to an intimacy with a certain young man, which is a positive falsehood, aud the author of the statement, let it be who it may, has told a notorious and wilful lie and I am able to prove it. Tis true my husband and I have never lived happily together, and have separated, but as ne was ouly twenty years old, I suppose he got homesick and this is enough. I hope you will be good enough to publish this also. M.

A sure cure for Blind, Bleeding, Itching and Ulcerated Piles ha been discovered hy Dr. William, (an Indian remedy,) called Dr. William's Indian Ointment. A siHgle box has cured the worst chronic cases of 25 or 30 years standing. one need suffer five minutes after applying this wonderful soothing medicine. Lotious, instruments and electuaries do more harm than good. William's Ointment absorbs the tumors, allays the itching (particularly at night after getting warm in led,) acts as a poultice, gives instant and painless relief, and is prepared only for piles, itching of the private parts, and for nothing else. Read what the Hon. J. M. Cotfinbury of j Cleveland says about Dr. William's Indian Pile Ointment: I have used scores of Pile Cures, and it aflbrds me pleasure to say that I have never found anything which gave such immediate and permanent relief as Dr. William's Indian Ointment.

After their greet ings, he continued : "By the way, Angus, vou own a farm near Minnedosa?" " -'Yes." ''How much will you take for it ? "1 don't know," said Angus. "I thought of settling on it mvself." "Well, I'll tell vou what, I'll give vou $b000 for it " Angus thought before leaving Glengarrv that if he got $2,000 for it he would be doing well, but he was now in the land of booms and so he asked for it $6 500. "Well here's $50 on the bargain and we'll sign the papers to-morrow.r And the purchaser rushed off Before two hours had passed Angus ran against another old acquaintance. "Glad to see you, Angus ; glad you came up. There's a splendid chance for you. By the way, I see you registered as owning a farm near Minnedosa. How much do you want for that farm ? "I've just sold it," said Angus. "How much did he give you ?" "Six thousand five hundred dollars." "The dickens he did. Why, I'll give you $15,000 for it. You go to the pur chaser and get him to release you, and I'll give you the $15,000." Angus wished that he was back in St. Raphaels or anywhere else, since he had made such a fool of himself. However, all he could do was to try to get the farm back. So who does he run across within fifteen minutes but purchaser No. 1. Says Angus : "I'm sorry I sold you my farm. I'd like to get it back. Here' your $50, and we'll be where we were." "Oh, I can't do that. I bought a farm, and will have the papers ready to-morrow." After further higgling Angus ottered him $500 to break the bargain. With great reluctance the first purchaser took the $500100 uew $5 bills of the bank of Montreal and save back to An gus the temporary agreement of Rale. Angus was happy again aud set out to find buyer No. 2. He found him not. No. 1 and 2 were pal confidence men. Angus, was the sucker from Ontario, and $450 was the net amount they stung liim for.
