As the reporter was making his usual
rounds in East Sedalia yesterday, his at

down Third street, seeming 10 have no spe

followed him up Third street as far as Mass
achusetts street, where a lady accosted him
and asked him where he was going. About
all the little fellow could tell was that his
name was Fred, and that he was looking
for his papa. The lady took him in charge,
and the last seen of them they were making
their way toward Engineer street.

went to the house, telling her he wanted
his papers. At this she became enraged
and sending for an officer had him arrest
ed. As he was full the officers believed
her story and Fred was locked up. The
above was told the reporter while he was
in the calaboose. After he was released he
remained here some time, working at dif
ferent places. At last he secured his pa
pers, all he wanted, and left the city.

John Barlow, the man who was charged
with having made an attempt to ravish
Jiosa .Butcher Inday evening, was ar
raigned before Recorder Raucfe yesterday
morning, on the charge of disturbing the
peace, but as no case could be made against
mm, oe was dismissed.
Immediately afterward he was arrested
on a state warrant Charging him with at
tempting rape, and arraigned before Jus
tice Halstead. No case could be made
here either, and he was released.
The testimony given by the woman was
very conflicting, the story she told at the
police station and the one she told at the
justice's court being as far apart as the
NORTH AND SOUTH POIES,
and that which she did tell would
not tend to show that an attempt at rape

had gone one way to the house while Bar
low had gone another, and that they met
ouisiae. Arriving insiae, ne maae a prop
osition to her which she stoutly refused,
telling him she was not that kind of a
woman, although she afterward sat down
in his lap and allowed him to take im
proper liberties with her.
On being asked what Barlow did when
she sat down in his lap, she replied that
he pulled her clothes up, and when asked
what she did then, she replied that
SHE JUST LAUGHED
about the matter, and told him 'that he
mist stop his fooling.
Barlow said that she told him not to
make so much noise as she was afraid the
neighbors would hear them and give her
away. This she did not deny; She also
said that she had been put up to having
him arrested by other parties.
As it is the affair is about & stand off,
and the woman is probably as bad, if not
worse than the man. The two probably
had some misunderstanding about the wav
things were to work, and the woman get
ting mad, left the house.
The reporters attention was also called
yesterday to the fact that her husband had
not deserted her, as she says, but that she
had left him on
THREE DIFFERENT OCCASIONS.
The Bazoo readers will remember some
months ago a Montserrat co&l miner
named Fred Butcher was arrested and con
fined in the calaboose in this city on a
warrant sworn out by his wife, charging
him with having assaulted her and at
tempting to kill her. When arrested a
22-calibre revolver was found in his
pocket and the next day he was fined $53,
not having which he was compelled to
serve it out He was confined for sixteen
days when he was released on account of
In conversation with a Bazoo representa
tive Fred said that he had not assaulted
hs wife, neither did he threaten to kill
her. He had been employed in the coal
mines at Monserrat, and while he was at
work his wife had been in the habit of re-
OTHER itEN AT HI3 HOUSE.
He had taken her out of a house of cor
rection in Germans, where she had been
confined for lewd conduct, and married
her, the authorities Jetting him have her
with the understanding that he would im
mediately leave the country. This he did,
and came to&merica, believing that if he
once got her away from her old haunts
and associates she would lead a better life.
For a time she was a most devoted wife
and did all in her power to make him
harmv. but erraduallv. althoueh Fred seen
it not, she began to go back to her old !
evil ways. She would go out at all times
of the night, and with strange men at that
SHE WOULD BE GONE DAYS.
This occurred in Kansas, and Fred deter
mined to move to some small place in Mis
souri where so many chances to do wronjj
would not be thrown in her way. Mont
serrat was just such a place as he desired
and accordingly their household enects
were packed up and shipped to that burg
and Fred shouldered a pick and
shovel and went to work in the mines. But
here azain he was disappointed. One day
one of the miners went to him and in
formed him that somethine wrone was go
ing on at his house as he had seen two or
three different men lurking around his
house. Fred immediately left his work and
went home, determined to satisfy himself
about his wife's unfaithfulness. Arriv
ing at his house he entered, when to his
horror he found that the stories about Mrs.
Butcher were but too true, and at that
moment there was
A XAN IN THE HOUSE WITH HER.
The discovery enraged Fred beyond de
scription arid he began to upbraid her for
her illegal doings, reminding her that he
had taken her out of her confinement, and
centuring her for the way in which she was
repaying his action. It was then her turn
to get mad; she was very well satisfied as
long as her husband said nothing to her.
She informed him that she was her own
boss, and since she had escaped from Ger-
many and there was no danger oi oemg
sent back to the house of correction she
would do as she pleased and go with other
men whenever she felt so disposed. Fred
said nothing more about the matter at that
time hut went to work asrain. While he
was in the mines his wife sold all the
household effects and putting the money
into her pocket came to Sedalia. She also
brought with her some valuable papers be
longing to Fred. Fred went home and
found nothing there except a 22-calibre
revolver, which bis wife had been

Mr. Blaine's letter of acceptance was the
all absorbing theme in political circles yes
terday aud called forth comments as di
verse and varied as the individual express
ing them. Thinking the Bazoo readers
might be benefitted by the views expressed
among leaders or at lean curious to know
what they had to say, a reporter was dis
patched to interview a few leading lights.
HERE IS THE RESULT:
Judge Halstead was the first gentleman
broached upon the subject. He thought
the letter was a sort of mongerel, and was
contradictory from beginning to end. It
didn't suit him at all.
Capt. Albert Parker thought the letter
was a good one. It was plain and no man
had any excuse for not understanding its
contents. It was just what he wanted.
Judge Rifle said it was iust like the re
publican party that is, no good. He had
only read a part of it, but that was enough.
rte was lor Cleveland and Hendricks.
While the reporter was talking to the
judge a gentleman remarked that ne didn't
care for either Blaine or Cleveland. He was
holding off to see what Butler intended to
do. Bstler is the man, said he, and one of

Judge bhirk had only read as far as the
end of the tariff question. The judge said
he thought it a very able and conclusive
Judge Wm. Gentry was asked for his
opinion, ne said he hadn't had time to
read the letter and didn't expect he would
Mr. John Fisher said that he hadn't read
the letter, but that he knew it was an able-
one. Anything that came from Mr. blame
would be good reading and the truth.
Mont Carnes said that he had read s
part of the letter, and didn't have any
opinion to express about the matter. He
didn t think it worth expressing an opinioB.
John Landes thought the letter was a
masterpiece and declared that it was one of
the best he had ever read. It showed the
good sense and wise judgment of the gen
tleman who penned it.
Prosecuting Attorney Heard had not
read the letter, and was consequently un
prepared to give an opinion. He consid
eied Mr. Blaine a smart man.
Alderman Farnham had read a part oi
the letter, and intended to read the bal
ance at the earliest opportunity. He
thought it covered the grounds admirably,
and was just what was needed.
Cnarley 1 eater thought that Blaine
might be a very well versed man, but the
letter did not meet his approbation.
Col. Cloud said that it was all that
could be asked for and was sure it would
win. He looked upon it as an article from
the hands ol an able statesman.
Geo Longan had read many articles and
letters' that, in his judgment, were better
Cleveland was the man for him.
Numerous vother gentlemen were seen
who had not yet had a chance to read Mr.
Blaine's letter and were unable to give an
opinion. They will be seen to-morrow
and what they say will be published Tues
day. First Blood.
The campaign is opening with fever
heat, a caustic word a hot blow and the
crowd shouts "First blood for salty."
It all occurred the other day between R.
W. Nicolds and J. E. Saltenstahl at Arrow
