A BAD BOY Is Albert Delameter, Who is an Illustrious Embodiment of Depravity. He Pleads Guilty to the Charge of Robbing Hie Indulgent Grandfather. For the past two weeks Mr. Delameter, who runs the cigar and billiard room formerly owned by Bczmsn Brothers, has been missing sundry articles from his stock in the shape of pipes, cigar holders, cigarettes, cigars, etc Mr. Delameter entertained a well-grounded opinion that his grandson Albert, a lad about thirteen years of age, was the guilty party, and recent developments at test the correctness of the old gentleman's suspicions. Officer Jim Gossage was taken into the confidence of the gentleman who whs being so mercilessly plundered by the depraved scion of his houte, and for some days the vigilant officer ha niaintainrd a strict sur veillance upon the incomings and out goings of the ungrateful youth. The in comings of the lad were made by way of a transom over the rear door of his grand father's establishment, and it is presumed that his egress was made by the same route, as the locks and fastenings of the doors were always fourd intact. The first article confiscated by this youth of seemingly innate peculating proclivities was a brush used in cleaning billiard ta bles, and which was recovered after the boy became fully convinced that he bad been spotted as the thif. The next arti cles missed were several fine mee schaum pipes, one or two cigar holders and several packages of cigarettes. Young Delamater has for several days past carefully evaded Officer Gossage,whom he had good reason to believe was cogni zant of his crooked work. The officer, how ever, succeeded in laying hands on the urchin yestesday mort ing and ran him in. Upon being placed behind the bars, the boy wept bi'terly andttaied to his graud- father and the officer that his mother had made him do the stealing. The old gen tleman seemed disposed to give eutire credence to the boy's story, but what ob ject the boy's moiher had in inciting him to do such work is beyond the comprehen sion of the reporter, unless she did it from pure cusaednes-, as she profited nothing from the boy's thefts. Young Didameler stated that hesold one pipe valued at $7.50 to a boy by the name of Jack K el ley, the consideration being a bottle, a harp and fifteen cents in money. Another pipe valued at the same amount he said he made a present of to Willie Stark. A box of billiard cue chalk was disposed of for a small consideration to the Pearl saloon. In addition to the articles i of merchandise purloined, this young can- didate for the penitentiary got away with alout $1.25 in money. The pipe traded to young Kelley as also the one presented to fctark were recovered, but m such a dam aged condition as to be of little value. Mr. Dehuueter savs his grandson has faithfully promised him that he will no longer t;ike the wicked advice of his moth er, and expresses onitence aud a disposi tion to reform. The boy will be confined in the cooler a chert time for punishment, after which he will be discharged, his grandfather, very naturally, declining to swear out a state warrant against him. Wanted.

Although it is less than a month be'ore the city election, candidates arc uoi sprout ing as rapidly as usual, and the gentlemen who are ready aud willing to labor for the benefit of the city for the next twelve months, and draw their salaries with com mendable regularity, seem in a majority o! cases to be m the hands of their friends, 1 nd exhibit a degree of modesty which is almost as remarkable as it is praiseworthy . On the republican side of the house there does not seeni to be mauy who have an ambition to guide the city thip of govern ment over the many rocks and shoals of municipal legislation, which are oftea suf ficient to strike terror to the hearts of the most experienced navigators in these waters. Mayor Messerly has evidently given entire satisfaction to his party and, doubt less, can secure the nomination if he de cides to 5 ake the race lor re-election.

Readers of the Bazoo will remember the attempt to rob a north bound Kansas & Texas traiu, near Yinita, in the Indian territory, in September last, on which occa sion a man named William Wilson was Killed, while Conductor "Chic" Warner, who was in charge, of the train, received a wound in the left cheek, the scar of which he will carry until the day he dies. The shot vvhich killed Wiliou was fired by John R. Swinucy a uoted desperado, and a dead shot, who had informed the railway and express officials that an attempt, was to be made to rob the train at Yinit. When that point was reachpd.no train robbers ap peared, but Swinney did enough slutting to ware the train nieu nearly to detli, and, as is alleged, killed Wilson, and in tin inelee. Conductor Warner was wounded, as stated. The presumption was that Swinnev had concocted the bogus train robbeiy for ihej sole purpose oi g.-ttmg an opportunity to kill YMson, and after a thorough inveUi gation, the authorities had Sinuey arrest ed snd taken to Ft Smith. Arkv where he was held to auwer the charge of murder in the first degree. Quite a number of witnesses were sub poenaed to appear agaimt the alleged mur derer, and it was the uuiversal opinion that tu; would strttcb hemp. But not so, how ever, for dispatches received from there on Friday state that the prisoner's trial was concluded that day, and a verdict of ac quittal rendered. The Baxx) does not see how this result was reached, but if twelve mtn say that Swinney U not guilty, then it must so stand r,Hnrdpfl m. A LUCKY MERCHANT. The Winner of One-Fifth of the Capital Prize of the Loaisiaua State Lottery Turns Out To be a Main Street Man. Rig lo'tery prizes are not drawn everv spent. As is known. Crittenden T. Col lings, teller of the Second National bank, held one-fifth of the prize, and collected the name for the party who owned the ticket. When first questioned by a representative of the Commercial, ssveral days since, in an in terview, he stated that a syndicate of ton owned the ticket, and tht the $15,000 drawn would therefore fee divided between them. Yesterday, however, he admitted that a well-kno-n and highly respected wholesale merchant on Main' street had been the lucky man and that the money had been paid over to him, he having held one-fifth of ticket 57,012. The merchant, however, has positively prohibited Mr. Col lings from allowing the use of his name for publication, not desiring for reasons of his own to have any notoriety on the sub ject. Louisville (Kentucky)" Commercial, March 1. She Was Left. A young lady boarded the Missouri Pacific irain at Tipton, yesterday, ticketed to Dresden. The train was crowded but she found a seat in the Texas car. At Se dalia she was switched on a side track for nearly two hours, and when the K. & T. pulled ont she found she was going on the wrong train. She made known the fact to Conductor Xance, who sent her to the Gar rison house from the Fifth street depot, aud she will take the next train to her destination.

The Congregational church of this city, which has beeu undergoing repairs, was completed yesterday alternoon and is now a picture of beauty, surpassed by none in the city. This church has always been very popu lar, under the leadership of the present pastor, Rev. A. J. Van Wagner, imd also of his lather, who officiated for many years. The church was built soon after the close of the war, and ha never been thor oughly repaired since, but while it was not equal to some in the costliness of its furni ture, while no beautiful frescoes covered the walls, or sparkling chandeliers filled its remotest rece.-ses with mystic light while no grand old orgau sent its deep swelling tones reverberating through lofty aisles, tne voice of eloquence and wisdom hns drawn great crowds of eager Hsleners, wno carea iiitte ior gaudy colors while Mich food for thought was furnished them. And not until the day when the acts, good and evil, of men are rewarded, will it be known how many lives have been made better and happier how many have been rcclaimeJ fnmi the downward course to rum. to say nothing of a vast amount of practical advice and encouragement which has been delivered by its talented young pastor. Where to begin a description of so much beauty is a hard matter to decide. The ceiling has six panels, four large and two smal er ones, of damask paper, with gilt borders and corner.-. The side walls are adorned with olive paper, with smal lfignrfs. The windows are trimmed with olive pa per, with gi Id leaves, and surrounded with cardinal red paper. The alcove is superbly lovely. It is cov ered with light blue paper, dotted all over with golden stars. The dado is of gilt paper, beautifully trimmed with border of gold and cardi nal red. The gas fixtures have been burnished with gilt, aud handsome globes have been furnished by Mr. Holcomb. The woodwork has been beautifully grained and burnished. The floors are furnish d with costly car pets of magnificent design, and the halls aud gallery with matting. A yery handsome pulpit Bible was pre sented by Mr. Chas. West, aud a lovely piece of silk, in the form of a bookmark, hand-painted, was placed therein by Mi Josie Wright. Iu fact, the church now presents an ap pearance of which its members are justly proud, and which is worthy of re-echoing the noble sentiment which are wont !o be uttered within its sacred walls; for while truth is never lost, eyen when uttered in the humblest places, il is right that the lu u?e which is dedicated to the great Crea tor of a univeise be adorned in such a man ner as to inspire that reverence which, is due it. The work was done by Frank Holland and Ed. Dice, and speaks well for the work men. The paper was furnished by Sanborn Bro?., and the entire cost was about $500 A Sneak Thief. About 10 o'clock yesterday morning Mr. 4. M. Hirschhorn, the eloth;njr merchant on the west side of Ohio street, near Main, missed a pair of pants, which had btn hung out with the "show" in front of the store early in the morning The pants, of course, fell a prey to some perambulating thit ff who made way with his booty with out attracting attention. The pants stolen wi re of dark cashmere and valued at $4. Mr. Hirschhorn heard of a fellow, resem bling a tramp in appearance, offering for sale a pair of pants at Cohu's second hand store. Mr. Cohn, supposing that the goods bad lieen stolen, decliued to purchase The police were notified of the theft, but failed iu their efforts to run in the sup nosed thief, for whose apprehension Mr. Hirschhorn offers a reward of one dollar. For Oity Marshal. In the proper place will le found the announcement of R. J. Shy as a candidate for re-electiou, subject to the decision of the democratic nominating convention. Mr. Shy has, during the two years which he has administered the affairs of thL im portant olfice, proved himself a worthy and competent official, and his claims will doubtless receive careful consideration by the party from whom he seeks renomina tion a ad election.

The Officers of the Association Preparing to Eclipse All Former Efforts, The Meeting of the Board Directors Held Yesterday Afternoon. of Already the enterprising and energetic directors of the Sedalia Exposition associ ation are actively at work preparing for the next exposition, which will commence Tuesday, September 4th, and continue five days. It is the intention of the directors to spare no labor or expense to make thin exposition not only the best ever witnessed in Central Missouri, but second to none ever held in the state, outside of St. Louis, and even comparing favorably with that enterprise. Although it is almost six months before the date set for the exposition, the direct ors have very prudently resolved to take time by the forelock and let no grass grow under their feet. Accordingly, a. meeting of the board was held at the offi e of ihe secretary of the association, yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of taking the in iatory steps in preparing for the exposition. Mr. J. X. Dal by, the prcsfdent of the as5( -ciation, occupied the chair and a majority of the directors were present. After the reading of the minutes of the last meeting of the board, Mr. Dal by, lrom the committee appointed to wait upon the county court, for the purpose of asking an appropriation from the court for premiums, reported that the court had consented to al low thesum of SloO for the purpose named, said amount to be distributed among the various departments as the directo.s thought best. The matter ot giving a portion of the premiums in silverware was discussed, and as the plan seemed to work very satisfacto rily last year, it was decided to adopt the same scheme for the next fair. The total amount of premiums to be awarded was fixed upon the basis of la?t year's schedule. Mr. WT. L. Beitler, the secretary of the association, submitted his report of the creation of a circuit by the secretaries of the various fair associations in this section of the state. The dates agreed upon are as follows: Brownsville, August 20th to 25th; Higginville, August 3ih to Sep tember 1st ; Sedalia. September 4th to 8th ; Jefferson City, September 2oth to 29th; Mexico, September 25ih to 29th. The Mar shal association having insisted upon hav ing the same date as that assigned to Se dalia, viz: September 4th to -Sin, was not included in the circuit. President Daiby announced the follew ing committees, whose duty it shall be to revise and arrange the premium list in their respective departments, subject to the approval of the board : On horses and speed ring, Messrs. War der Cummings, Geo. T. Brown ami E. Wfc Stevens. On cattle, Messrs. John R. Skinner, C G. Taylor and J. H. Both well. Ou swine, Judge Taylor and Geo. T. Brown. On sheep Messrs. R, T. Gentry, J. IL Both well and W! L. Beitler. On poultry, J. W. Walker and John R. Skinner. On machinery ha'l, Messrs. Messrs. Geo. T. Brown and E. W. Sincl ur. On merchant, display and textile in ly rics. Judge Taylor and Emruett Dugan. On fruits and flowers, Messrs. Frank Lundmann and R. T. Gentry. On motion, the secretary was instructed to receive bids from the various news paper offices in the city for tf e printing i the premium list and catalogue. The sec retary was also instructed to reduce the price of advertising in the catalogue from 15 to $10 per page, half page $5. No ad vertisement of less than a half page to be taken. The president broached the subject of special attractions for the exposition, and after some discussion, Mr. John RJ?kinner was appointed a committee to secure a band of untamed &:ivages, who will appear in war paint, execute the war dance, etc.r for the edification and amusement of those who visit the exposition. The secretary was instructed to corres pond with the noted aeronauts with a view to organizing a serits of baloon ascensions. It wa also proposed to have hurdle racing as a special feature, and this matter was referred to the committee on horses and speed ring After the transaction of some business of minor importaace, the board adjourned to meet Saturday afternoon, March 24. There was one cas in the police court vesterday. Samuel Fields, a burly negro, who conceived the idea that he was chair man of the board of health and attempted to dictate to several citizens as to the loca tion of their water closets, was fined $10- for using offensive language and otherwise annoying an old lady in South Sedalia.
