al black suit befitting the occasion. The

Brilliantly Consummated
Last Night.
The Marriage, Yesterday, of Mr.
James O'Brien to Miss Nellie
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
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
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 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.

Judge Gantt Says they Shall

ber 21st.
They Receive their Sentence
With a Cool and Start
ling Indifference.
Clinton, Mo., Oct. S.-Srecial. 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.

Causes a Commotion Amon
the Employes of the
Pacific Shops. "
No Strike Anticipated and an Am
icable Adjustment of Diffi
culties Expected.
The residence of Wm. 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
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."
