The bridp is universally lowd and respected by her large circle of friends and acquaintances. On the oc casion of her niirriage she wore a cinna mon colored silk dress, f-laburaely trim med with rich lace, while at the throat was a cluster d tube roses and ether natur al flowers.

LOVE'S LINKINGS. The Marriage, Yesterday, of Mr. James O'Brien to Miss Nellie Scanlon. Yesterday morning at the Catholic church, Mr. Janies O'Brien and Miss Neb lie Scanlon were united in the holy bond of wedlock. The ceremony was perforuji d at 9 o'clock, the R:v. Father Murphy offi ciating. Mr. O'Brien iB one of the most prom ising young business men of the Quen City, one whose honesty and integrity has never been doubled, and who is fully de serving of the lovely bride and helpmate he has been so fortunate as to secure. The bride is a handsom? younsr lady, wtll known in SedaPa, aad will doubtless make a loving, dutiful wife. They have known eask other for a number of years having grown up to gether, and it is no wonder that the feeling of friendship which existed bttween them in their younger days, should ripen into love and finally, m rriag, as they reached maturity Bo'h are to be congratulated upon their choice. After the wedding ceremony the happy couple took the east bound train for St Louis and other p'aces of note, after which they will return to this city and go to housekeeping. Both have a large cire'e of friends aad acquaintances in this city who wish Ihem a pleasant journey and a safe return, and the Bazoo joins in the hope that their married life may prove one of continual happiness and that no cloud shall, ever mar the serenity of their lives. Robbery at Adrian. A tramp effected an entrance to several stores in the litJe village of Adrain on the morning of the 6th, and secured money and-goods to the amo.unt of $125. While packing his stolen goods in a valise the thitf was surprised by a gentleman who cune in on tha early morning train, and dropping his valise skipped out. He was closely followed by officers and arrest ei at Harrisonville. The authoritios of Bate? county were telegraphed at once, and an officer was sent for the thief, but from some cause, probably an irregularity in the papers, the Harr'son county offici als refused to deliver the prisoner. This error was soon rectified, however, but the Bates county official was compelled to make & second trip after his prisoner. The enterprising thief upon beinsr brought back to Adrain, waived a preliminary ex amination and was held m the sum of $500 to await the action of the grand jury. In default otbond he was committed to jail. If, as Emerson says, "all the wor'.d loves a lover," the celebration of love's beautiful and consummate flower, a wedding, is an eyent which draws forth deepest interest and kindliest feelings from those who wit ness the solemn, yet joyou?, ceremony, wherein two lives are mystically merged into one, and two hearts publical!y plight their troth in holy vows of constancy and loyalty lo each other. Such an event is fraught either with the beatiitudes of heaven or the miseries of Dane's Inferno ; the sweet joy of the ideal home, or the fai sorrows ot wrecked hopes and blasted lives. The union of two lives means more of sun shine than of shadow to both, or it brings the darkest clouds that ever cast their gloom acros life's pathway. Last night, at toe palaiial residence of Mr. Cyrus Newkirk, president of the First National bank of this city, on Broadway and Eighth streel,there was a brilliant gath ering of the elite of thts city, with many from abroad, the occasion being the niar-ri-ge ot Mr. George W. Galbreath and Miss Tone" Newkirk, one of tha fair dauuhters of Mr. and Mrs. Newkirk, and a blight star in the highest circle of Sedalia 80ciely. Two hunured invitations had been issued, and such preparations made as would fittingly characterize the wealth, culture and social standing of the parties soon to be united. The Handsome home was brilliantly lighted throughout, and within its spacious halls and rooms there was no shauow or hint of the murky dark ness withi-ut. At an early hour the guests ! began to arrive, and thrir reception was marked with such a warmth of gieetirg as to disarm all formality and disptl all stffness, making each one feel that he or she was as welcome as flowers in May. Soon the great house resounded with merry salutation?, as friend met friend, and cheery, bright social chat rippled in sweet cadence through parlor and hall. With gracious courtesy the hest and hostess moved among tbe guests, :i(ied in their ef forts by the charming daughters of the household. It was a brilliant ga hering. The 1 dies were royally dieted, and as bewitching in face, person and manner : s youth, beauty and vivacity could make them. The gen tlemen appeared at thtir best, and never were knights of oil more courtly or gnl lant flowers lent their beauty and fra grance to the scene, and mellowed 1 grits it-ll irom gilded chandeliers as soli a bsams Irom Luna's lamp. Footfalls were hushed in the soit dep.hs of rich carptts and no Sjund save rippling liugiitr or sjltened speech was heard. Brightness and beiuty showed cn eveiy hand, and light hefr.b teat responsive to the d-ltghtful anticipa tions of the hour. A lir, sweet fljffer of the household was aoou to be transpoiteJ to another home, to assume new duti-s and untried responsibilities, bat, as serious as was .his change to her, s e mu?t be sent fcr..h with a memory ot bngntntss which should cast its halo n.to all that the future might bring to her. Frtsently a hush fell on the merry g jests, and the attendants slowly, a;.d 10 the music of M ndelssohu's redding nircr, played by Prof. Roscce VV. Lucy, find down the broad stairway and took positioj in the parlor. They came in the ft l'.owing order: Mr. Sid Hay ward aLd Miss Eila Galbreath, Mr. Elmer Gaibrsath and Miss Ida NewkirK ; Mr. Thomas H. K-ho and Miss Mary Mecs-. Then came the observed of all ob.eivers, the prou.l groom, witn his fair, swtet bride leaning on his arm. Thry entered t e p trior and took their place on the east side under a large and beautiful floral umbrella, and were immedia ely confronted by Rtv. Gorge A. Beattie, ot the First Presoyteiiin chuic i, who, in chaste woid-, pictured out the so lemnity ot the vows about to le uttered, and ofthe joys and blessings ot married life where love is regnant. Ihe r.-spouses o the candidates were e'ear as suver belh-, and, without a tremor, they answtr.d the m tn ot God. The cere"mony over, there was a gla lsoine te.ideribg of tit any con gratula ions, whicu l.sted nearly n hour, for each friend had much to express. It was an hour ol supreme barpiness to the newly n.aJe husband, an 1 a he looked upon the trusting woman who had lijked ner life with his, he must hive recalled the pott's words : "she is mine own ! And I as rich in having suen a jewel, As twenty seas, it all their sands were pearl; Their water nectar, and tlieir rocks ure gold " This union is a singularly happy one. The Kioom is a young man of noole char acter, fine business abil ties, and as hooest as a ray of sunlight. He has lived in this city for five "years, and built up a name which is better than money. He i woit y the woman he has won. The bniie has grown from childhood to womanhood in this city. "None know her but to love her, None name her but to praise," and her liie glisie s uth the gems of puri ty, modetty and tenderness of heart. To her husband she wll be, " A. guardian angel o'er his life presiding:, Doubling his pleasures aud hi cares dividing." Both were born in Georgetown, Ohio, but neither saw each other until five years ago, when he came to this city. THE DRESSES. The bride's dress was of whi'e silk velvet cut, en princesse ; embossed velvet robe front, finished with point duchesse lace around the neck and down the left sfde ; long square court train. Large, white vel vet hat trimmed with feathers. The orna ments were diamonds. The first bridesmaid, Mi-s Ella Gal breath, wore a maz trine blue satin, wattean pleated cour.. triin, over quilted petticoi1, panels of cascade point lace, medici collar filled in with point lace. Diamond orna ments. Tbe second bridesmaid, Miss Ida Be'le Newkirk, wore a rich dress of silver pink satin, and long court train; front of skirt covered with illusion embroidered in pink plush roses, short eleeves and low neck fill ed in with illusion lace; diamonds. Miss Mary Mense, of St. Louis, the third bridesmaid, was radiantly beautiful in a light blue gros grain silk, front of light blue china silk trimmed with orien tal silk. Square neck, pointed bodice, court train, elbow sleeves, gloves to meet them, illusion gathered close around the reck 8nd fasten d with diamond pin Pearl ornaments. The groomsmen wore the conventional black, swallow tail coats, patent leather shoes and while ties. The groom's suit w is orthodox as to color and cut, and was of the finest Uxture. A line collation was spread, the bride's cake being especially rich and handsome. It wss not a snobbish spreid, but just such a one as renced taste would serve, it was greuly enjoyed by the quests. Merrily sped the moments until the hour for the departure of Mr. and Mrs. Galbreath for St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Ripley, Ohio, where the parents of the groom reside. Adieus were said, parting kisses given and taken, uGod bless you," came from warm hearts, the lucky shoe was thrown, and the happy pur were driven to the depot, where, last night they boarded the train for their bridal tour. The Bazoo unites its con gratulations with hosts of friends, and in vokes for these happy ones a life-journey over waters unswepi by storm and under skies as blue as those which bend o'er Araby's isle.

This morning at 10:30 Judge Gantt ordered that the murderers of John Wells be brought into court for sentence When they made iheir appearance accompanied by the sher iff, there w s epuite a ripple of sensation creat-id In the audience and every eye was turned upon them, but no trace of excite ment or fpar appeared upon thtir faces. When they were seated behind the bar in the prisoner's dock, Judge Gntt inquired of their attorneys if they had any further motions to make before the sentence should be passed, when Mr. M. A. Fyke passed up a paper to b filed in arres" of judgment in the Hopkitkcase and C. C. Dickinson fa'led a similar paper in behalf of Browi'field. A motion from the attorney of each hid pre viously been filed and overruled, for a new trial as was ab-o the motions in arr.st of judgment. The e papers having been dis posed of the judge stated that sentence wou d be passtd upon the prisonets. and upon Hopkirk first. He u quested Frank to stand up. He arose promptly, with a smile, and with one hand upon the back of the chair of one of his attorneys who sal before him. listened alter. tively to the pre liminary rem: rks and the death semeuce by the judge, showing no perceptible emo tion at any time. His cheeks were slightly flushed and this was the only evidence that be felt or rial zed the terrible portent of the words which condemned him to a fel on's death. To the question "Have you anything to say why sentence of death should not now be passed upon you?" Hopkirk repli d in a calm de ibervteJ voice, "No sir I believe rot." Judge Gantt then stated in what he was about to do. he was not acting as an individual but an i strument in the hands of the great common wealth of Mis souri. He made an able rtview of the c ises as they had progressed and gave his reasons for hisov-rrulings the vari us motions of the defendant"? lawyers. After which he spoke of the ch iracter of the jurors who sat upon the cases aud whose verdict h.id rendered uc ssary tne present ac'ion, spy ing they were a jury of peers, a jory ot sober, intelligent men and cit'zins, who had so conducted them elves that not the .-lightest charge or suspicion of ought but a consctencious discharge of a painful duty could be brought against them, and clos d with the usual formul ited sentence of death by hanging. on Fridny, November 21st, 1884 As he closed, Hop kirk resumed his seat, with a smi'e more risimbhug that of a chided schcolro? than a man who had jnat heaid the words which were so soon to t ut short his eaithly being. Browcfield was then called before the b tr and exhibited a rcichalenca that even ex ceeded, if pcss.ble, that of his generally cot stdered less culpable accomplice. Judge Gantt in passing his sentence, dwelt more frdly upon the l. r L t i utuiuusntfss oi ine crime wnicn naa ren dered thii pain'ul duty ncc ssary and re viewed, at some leegth, the terrible in- ; r. i j - i ... t iquiy, c ouju concieve ana execute ir, ana the justice of th sentence 8nd punishment the Jaw provided for its perpet ator. brownti'ld. however, maintained his in difference and received his senteLca with out ai y outward show of feeling or excite ment beyond a slight patents and a look which could only be cor.smed as a show of obstinate lesolu ion.

Barrett, on the cor er of Fourth and Brown streets, was entered by burglars some time during Wed nesday night aLd $93 in money and a watch taken therefrom, It is not definitely known at what hour the robbery was com m'tted, but it is thought to have been early in the morning as one of the members was awakened hy a noise at that time, and from the way tlie burglary was committed it is thought to have been the work of sjme one who was thoroughly acquainted wHi the premises and who kaew that Mr. Barrett had the money. The watch had been left on the bureau, but the money was in Banett's pints ptcket. Nothing else was disturbed and it seems that the money was all the thieves were af-tf-r Mr. Barrett found his pants out in the bick yaid yesterday morning. An en trance was ffected through a side window. The police have been informed oi the rob bery but a-i thtre is no clue for them to work upon, the robbers will probably not be captuied. 'Hon. M. W. Ofiut, state seiator, Tow son, Maryland, writes: "I hid occasion to apply treatment to a severely sprained knee from, which, and from mfl amatory rheumatism, I had bsen suffering for six weeks. Some one suggested St. Jacobs Oil, which I tried, and it not only gave imme diate relief to the sprair, but it cured me of every symtom of the rheumatism." A Painful Accident. Wm. Weise met with qui'e a painful at cident yesterday evening. He is build ing a Lew residence north of the railroad and was working on a scaffold, whenen the structure suddenly gave way, precipitating him to the ground. Mr. Weise'a in juries consist of a bruised face and two teeth knocked out. His wounds received prompt attention and last night he was do ing well. 5 A freight cr being switched in the Pacific yards yesterday, was turned com pletely upside down by displaced twitch. For some time past the railroids throughout the country hive been com plaining that freight business was falling off in consequence of the farmers hold ing their wheat l-ack from the market in anticij ation of araide in the price. an& the roads were losing money every day. The Missouti Pacfic and branches were no exceptions to this ruh. Not only is the wheat held back but coal shipments which, are generally very large have been delajel by the prolonged hot weather, and th Bazoo was 1 st nigh t informed by CoL Kockv well that the Missouri Pacific company had six hundred coal cars alone lying Idle on the sk e tracks and scattered all 'ovac the country. " As might be expected the existence o this state of affairs was bound to tell soonec cr later, and the crisis came yesterday when orders were issued from headqua.ters at St. Louis and sent over" the entire sys tern, notifying the employes generally, with the exception of runners, that after date they would be subjected to alOper cent reduction in waee. ard the workiog time would be reduced to Dine hours. Not only this, but a g od many of tbe shop men were discharged and everything possible done to curteil expenses and pdt the road on a footing whereby it could bo 14 its own until business picked up -azain. The reduction in wages of course caused, dissatisfaction among all the employes, aad all day long tney were quiting, and last night it was sxii that not less than forty met had called for their time. These who quit were mostly sirg'e men, who, not bound by tamily ties could pick up and leave at any time. The men of family were of couTse dbsitisfied, but they took the rftuatioa more coolly and most of them signified their intention of staying with the railroad compauy and hoping for better times whec their former wages will undoubtedly be re stored to them. The cut is general and exteada from the mastermechacic down to the wipers m the round house. A cut of ten per cemt and reduction of one hour in working timt is, of course, quivalect to a twenty per cent cut and is keenly felt by all. A Bazoo repre eatative visited the shops yesterdav iwnirg and fourfd all quiet and orderlyr Although there hd been a good many men discharged and a good many more were quiting still there was no demonstra tion apparent on their part that woulfc lead to the belief that anything serious would be the result between the officials and the employes. Neither was there aaf signs of a strike of any kind. The Bazoo realizes the fact that the re duction will fall heavily on the shoulders of a good many of the employes, yet it sees, no reason why the men should enter into a strike and cause a disturbance which caa not possibly result in any good to them selves and may possibly cause a great deal of harm, and it hopes that employer an& employe may come to some amicable un derstanding. Following is a special dispatch to tht Globe-Democrat, dated Parsons, Kansas, Oct. 8 : "A sweeping reduction was made in' tht Missouri Pacific shop3 at this place to-daj, both in the force and in the wages of those retained. Seventy-five men from the dif ferent departments of the shops were dis charged. Considerable hardship will be the result of this reduction, bat no trouble is anticipated from those who are let out e thoM whose wftgw were reduced."
