THE SEDAUA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, OCTOBEK 14, 1884.
BOY BURGLARS. :Four of Them Arrested While Attempting to Enter a Grocery Store. "'The Same Young Thieves Visit a Shoe Store, and Help Themselves. About nine o'clock Sunday morning, Mr. J. P.. Alder, of the firm of Alder & Camp bell, groceis on Ohio stnet, while sitting in hit store -writing, had his attention at tracted by a rather peculiar noise, which ixe at first supposed was made by the wind and hence paid no attention to it until af ter be had finished his writing, when the noise, this time louder, again attracted his Attention and following in the direction from whence the sound proceeded, he dis .eovered a colored boy, with his body al most through the transom of the back door and another one about to enter. The -vouthful burglars seeing that they were discovered, crawled back as fast as possible and droppd to the ground. Mr. Alder was about to Mart in pursuit when he remem bered that the front door was unlocked, aud be hastened to lock it, after which he re turned and noticed four colored boys runn ing down the alley. He followad as rapidly OS possible, and upon arriving at the mar ket house, met Officer Fifer to whom he re lated the circumst mc- At the same time the quartette of young thieves was noticed on Kentucky street, by Mr. Alder, who pointed them out to the officer. The young .rascals saw the policeman as soon as he saw them, and made a rapid retreat in the direction of the railroad, closely pursued by the bluecoat. After reaching the rail road Officer Fifer was reinforced by Officer McGhee, who obtaining a horss from a boy standing near by,soon overtookthe fugitives, .capturing them near the Lexington switch. Shortly after the young burglars had been locked up, an overgrown and rather hard looking white boy, apparently about eighteen years of age, called at the cala boose and dedred to see them. He was ad mitted and was .at once recognized by the crooked little coons, with whom he seemed to be quite intimate, so much so in tact that the officers, thought it would not be a bad idea to lock him up, and the young man was accordingly given quarters with his colored friends. It was noticed that three of the colored boys wore new shoes and th?y were intero jated closely, as to how they c me by them,, their answer being sufficient to con rince the officers that tbey were correct in their suspicions, lhat the shoe3 were .stolen property. Two of the b,ys were taken out, and after brief questioning, admitted that they had stolen the shoes from Galbreath's store Saturday night. They said that four of them had entered the store while there were several cuito mers sttracting the attention of the clerks. They secured three pair of shoes and a pair of slippers and made their exit by the back door. They also infoini d the officeis that the white boy, whom they had known in Kansas City, had proposed to them to bur glarize a store, and they designated the Fire store" as the proposed bass of opera tions. The five youthful criminals, the oldest being the white boy who gave his age as seventeen, were arrainged before Justice Hslstead yesterday morning. The four colored boys were questioned regarding their ages; three of them according to their statements were agtd respectfully twelve years, while one little coon, who looked like a pice of dried up sausage said he was jjnly eight yeirs old. The" white boy gave bis name as Thomas Duncan. His four colored companions, answered to the names of John Simpfion, William Clark, Frank Hortonfeand John Miller. They all gave .Kansas City as their place of residence, and their occupation news bays and boot blacks. They sa:d that they followed the circus from Kansas City, and had ataid arcund the show grounds most of the time. One of them told the proscuting attorney that they saw Mr, Alder " bave considerable money nX the show grounds, (he having collected bis bill for provisions furnished the cir cos) and their object in breaking in, to the storewas to secure this money. Two of the boys he s?id, had threatened to do some body up before they left tbe town. The statements of the young csiminals were very conflicting, each one endeavoring to place the burden of guilt on his compan ions. One of them acknowledged that he had removed the rod from the transom taking out the screws with a piece of old. tin. Several pieces of tin, a hatchet and" &2rew dr'vr, were left by the boys in their ha ty flight. These articles were intro duced in court, but the young rascals da med to know nothing about the hitchet and screw driver. Af'fir the case pgainstthem for attempted burglary h d been disposed of in Justice fiaistead's court, the prisoners were taken before Justice KifFe to answer to the charge of stealing the shoes. The informa tion was read to them, and all pleaded rail y except Duncan, the white boy, who denied that he had stohn anything One of the coloied boys, however, stated that Duncan had stolen, or rather taken away from him, the pair of slippers, which, be had taken from Galbrta'h's, and soldj them to a colored woman for twenty cents. A new information was then made out against Duncan, charging him with steal ing the slippers from Prank Morton, one of the colored b iys. On this charge, not withstanding his earnest plea of not guilty, be was found guilty, and there being every Teason to believe that he was the leading spirit of the gang, he was given two months in the county jaiJ, while the four colored boys were given one month each, which will expire just at the time they are wanted in the criminal court to answer to the jcharge of burglary. Ail of the colored boys claimed to have parents in Kansas City except one, who claims Omaha for his home. J. Warren Moore of New Palestine, Cooper connty, was on the 29th of Septem ber made happy by the arrival of a ten povnd boy at his house. Wtrrea says he jp wot deformed in Che leas and thinks 4roaa bis vigor that he can run for preei " v"ilas well as Cleveland. Blockading Street Corners. While it is almost impossible to alto gether prchibit loafers from congregating on the street corners, yet the blockade which frequently occurs in many localitirs is an unnitigated nuisance and should be abolished as far as possible. One of these blockades occurred at tbe corner of Second and Ohio streets yesterday afternoon, and for a while it was a difficult matter for anvone to pass, while ladies were com pelled to take the other side of the street, to go around a8 it were. In many instan ces the parties who thus obstruct the side walks are not loafers, but farmers and oth ers who become interested in the discussion of politics or other subjects of general in terest and unmindful ot the great incon venience they are causing pedestrains The police should give them a gentle reminder.

Waker, a boy about 8 years of age, met with quite a serious accident yes terday evening at a little after 5 o'clock. He had been to sch ol and was going to his home at the corner of Third and Moniteau streets. Seeing a street car going by and knowing it would stop at the switch in front of his house, he got on the front end to ride. Be fore the car came to a stop he jumped off and as he did so his foot slipped on the wet ground and he fell with his head across the track, and h lore the driver could bring the car to a stop the front wheels had passed across his face. He was picked up by the driver and carried to his home There w is no one at home at tbe time excepting the ladits of the house, Mr. Walker being at work. 01 course they were gie itly alarmed and did not know what to do, but their fears were quittd by the little fellow telling them not to cry, and that he was not hurt very much. Dis. Bronson, Dunlap and Overstreet were call d iu nnd dressed the little suffer er's wounds. It was found that both jaws were broken and there was an ugly cut just behind tbe ear. A Bazoo reporter called at the house last night and found the boy resting eacy, with good prospects of a speedy recovery. His Slippery G-lass Eye.

Daniel Pitts was vesterdav arraigned before Justice Halstead on the charge of disturbing the peace of his wife, Annie Pitts. The evidence showed that the brute had been guilty of slapping his wife and threatening to "cowhide her. He admitted his guilt, and in the court room told his wife that he would give ner a good cow hiding if she did not behave herself. Themheribie brute was fined $10 and costs aggregating 23. In default of piy ment he was sent to jail, remarking before he left the room, that he would rather be in jail, than to live wth his wife. The evidence showed that Mrs. Pitts is and industrious woman, workii e hard for a living, and that for the past two years her worthless nusbsnd nss Deen absent from home an she has provided for herself and child ren. When he returned recently, he made a proposition to hiB wife, to board with her, she being engaged in conducting a boarding house. This proposition she accepted, but absolutely refused to live with him as his wife In a short time he drove all cf the boarders away and wound up by whipping his wife. The penitentiary is too nice a place for such a villain as this, but for tbe sake of his family some thing should be done to prevent a repeti tion of his cruel conduct.

Last night there was a democratic rally at Lamonte, and the little town fairly covtrcd herself with glory. At about sun down the very excellent local band drove through the street playing lively airs, and the citizens and country fo ks begans to gather in kno's in the vicinity of the hull, where the speaking was to take place. A delegation irom this city, consisting oi Judge John A. Lacy, Charles Yeater, C. L. Jackson and a Bazoo reporter et up on the afternoon triiu, and were war oily welcomed by the Lamontites. The report er seeing several ladies bemog hamvsjnie bouquets, going towards the hall, folio .ved after them to note the purpose of the flowers. This vrss dis coyered to be decorating the hall, and the profusion of floral offering was most flattering to the ccoasion, aud creditable to the Indies. The stage, front and rear was a bank of flowers and pot pi mt. At the back of the stsge Was a likeueis of Cleveland and Hendricks, and above them a handsome flag b aring their names. All this was the work of Mh. T. G. lnman, Mrs. C. C. Hemp, Mrs J. P. Walker, Mi s. J. J. Penqui'e, whes husbaud is a republic in, Mss s Emma Jbleming and lolly lnman, assisted by iev erl othr ladies. Too much credit can not be given the ladits for their "labor of love" iu thus adorning the pla.form from which solid truths were to hi handed out to the multitude, At a little after 7 o'clock the band pi iycd a stirring air in front of the hall, the peo ple, men. women and children ni anwhi; crowding up the stairs. There was scor. not ttanding room, and many were compelled to remain away from the feast. The band, speakers, and reporters took seats on the stage, Hnd the meeting was called to order by J. R. Wade, who briefly stated its object. Rev. J. "W. West nominated Thomas E. Inman as chairman, aud he was el cted with a hurrah. Mr. Inman aroused much enthusiasm by his remarks on taking the chair. To him the bulk of t'te credit for the magnificent success of the meetirg is largely due. Uharles E. Yeater, of this city was tbe first speaker, haviog been introduced as the eoiuinff orator of Pettis countv. Mr. Yeater confined himself to national issues, and was quite felicitous in his handling: of the same. Want of space forbids a synop sis of his speech. It was chaste in diction and gracefully delivered. The second speaker was Hon. C. S. Dob bins, of Sho.ls, Ind. This gentleman is an J old CHninaizner. and perfectly at home handling democratic ammunition. His speech was a powerful one, replete with solid shots against tne r?punncan pany, andsnoken with an earnestness that carried convicti m to the hearer. As the gentle i ... . . . i . v man will speak in tins city to-nignt wnere he can be beard by all who want to hear a fine ora'or, further notice of his effort will be deferred. He was frequently and loudly applauded. Judge Lacy closed the speech making by a ringing appeal to the democrats to arouse and btstir themselves for an increased ma jority thisiall. At the conclusion f the judge's speech, two little girls, Helen Walker and Vattie Buscb, in the name of the democratic ladies of Lamone, pre sented Mr. Dobbins with a magniOcen floral heart. The presentation address was read by Miss Helen Walker, a duty she per formed very charmingly. Mr Dobbins made a very feeling reply, and said he would take the offering back to his home with him. Mr. Inman presented Messrs. Lacy, Jackson Yeater and the Bazoo re porter with handsome bouquets in tne name of the ladies. The bind plsyed a medley and the audience was dismissed. It was a grand meeting and it was good to be there.

A middle aged German lady, apparently in great distress, was noticed by a reporttr at the depot last nig Lit. Owing to her ina bility to spaak good English, together with her seeeming repugnance to being ques tioned, it was impossible to learn the cause of her distress or where she wanted to go. It was ascertained, however, by more ques tioning that she ome from St. Joe where she has a daughter in the insane asylum, and that she had been robbed of a small amount of money on the train. She said she did not know it until she counted what she had left She thouget she had found sufficient let to lake her home. The unfortunate woman wept bitterly while be ing questioned.

Freight train No. 106 on the Lexingtf n branch was derailed west of Lake City. The train was east-bound and when n ar the above name'd place, the engine struck a cow. Six cais and the engine were thrown from the irck, the engine being pretty bsdly used up and the cars torn to i-p'.inters. Fortunately, no one was injured. The wrecking car was sent out soon after the wreck and at a late hour in the even ing trains were running as us lal. DEMOCRATIC DOCTRINES, j As Eloquently Expounded by Hon. O. S. Dobbins at Smith's Hall Last Night. Small hand-bills were circula'ed yester day afternoon announcing that Hon. C. S. Dobbins, of Indiana, would address 'he de niocr cy of this cry at Smith's hall in the evening, aud an invitation was extended to republican, grf enbckers and al! others ol whatever political f ith, to sttend and heir the issues of the campaign discussed from a democratic standpoint. The notice of the speaking was limited as to time, and the name of the speaker was unknown, save to a few, n the city, but when the meeting was called to order by Jud?e John A. Lacy, chairman of the county central committee, the ho ise was comfertably filled and brfore the speaker of the evenii g was half through theie was a large crowd present, probibly five hundred The Sedalia cornet band had been se cured and rendered some fine music on the t-tr el in frnt of the hall, and then from the gallery. Judge Lacy, in a few well chosen words, happily introduced Mr. Do'ibins, who was cordially greeted by the audience. Mr. Dobbins began by saying that he was glad to addresb his hearers as fellow-citiz-sns of a cemmon country, in which there was no north, no s uth, no east, no west He was proud to be a citizen of such a coun'rv, and to be able able to take pirt in maiot lining its honor and glory. He did not intend to deal IN VITUPERATION or to abuse any man because he was not a democrat, but to speak plainly, kindly and dispassionately. The first great issue, the speaker believed, was the danger arising from the long continued power of any party. He believed it was not the design ol tie latners oi mis govern ment that rower should vtst unbroken iu any oneparty, and that thisdaugermihlbe avert d, thy had wistly ordained the hold ing of an el ction evtry fouryersforiilling the highest office in the governm nr, and indirectly determining the character of the administration for the subsequent four yearF. Washington recognized the wisdom of this principle by relusmg to serve as president longer than eight years, and so did Madison and Monroe, and the father cf the democratic party, Thomas JefFerion. Th s principle of the necessity of a change in order to maintain purity and honesty and economy in the administration ot the government, applies to parties as well ss to individna s. In iS40 the democratic paity went out ot pow r and the whig party came io pos ssion of the government. In 1844 the whigs were vote 1 out and the demo crats again cime in power. In 1848 they were defeuted, and so on ran the changes till 1860, when the republican party triumphed and has continued to triumph at every presidential elfction, but one, to h's day. This was too long a lease and the result has bten corruption, peculation ar.d dishonesty io high places. The speaker haa heard a republican oiatorsay, not long since, that THE CHILD WAS NOT BORN who would 1 ve to fee the democrat'c party iu power again. This means, hebelite, a determination to re-enact the Iraud which robied Tilden of the presides, r-fer than to gve up the gov ernment to the control oi the demo ciaic party, even if it was in the ma jority, feuth an outrage cou d r ol again be permitted. He did cot hps; k iu a revolutionary spirit, but in deiense of constitutional liberty and rights. ruining his attention to Mr. Elaine, the s.e sker said he would show his record by republican testimony. As introductory, an exract was re id fr jm Senator Hotr's speech delivered in the Belknap cise, where in the senator pointed out the numberless instances of republican rascality and thiev ery, and then said that j:st such scound ieis were Mr. Blaine's chief supporters and buglemen. Extracts were read fn.m the Uincinn-.ti Commercial, edited by Murat Ha stead, the Chicago Tribune, Indianap ol.s News aud Globe D mocrat, and Mr5. Moni'i's letter, in which Mr. Blaine was vividly portr.tyed as the very prince of corruptionis's and lobbyists, p ostituting his high office to forward swindles and co hab'tiug wih knaves for private gains. This was republican testimony as to the character of the man the republi can party was seeking to elevate to the chief magistral y of the couutry. Not a line or word of democratic tiitimony was -tfiered. The speaker said that as a reply to the-e charge-i, the republicans said thai it would not do to trust the government in demo cralic hands. Keputdican sper-kers iu Iu dianna, and e be where, demunce democrats ts traitors, even though they had fought to maintain the Union, as the spaaker had done. But the democratic party bad been in control of the government it had sen the rise and fall of the federal party, the whig party, the knownothing party, the peoples party, and it ould attend the fun eral of tne republican par y. (Great ap plause.) Passing to a discuss'on of the tariff ques tion, Mr. Dobbins said that the democrats were not in favor of absolute free trade, for such a thing had never existed in this country, but that the platform declared for a tarift" for revenue. A protective tariff meant protection of a few at the expense of the many. The poor man was t xe l as severely as the rich man. It was called a protection of the laboring man, to-day, but in Henry Clay's time it was properly called a protection oi the manufacturers. And that is what it was. There is needed just so much money to meet the current ex pense of the government, to pay pensions and to pay the war debt. To raise more is to illegally oppress the peonle. This is all the democratic party proposed to do by the tariff, and t3 lift the burden cf taxation from the laboring man. Mr. Dobbins referred to Gov. Cleveland as a man who was 1 ooored at his home, even by his political foes, and read from the two Buff.ilo republican papers their tributes to him. Of Mr. Hendricks he said that hi wes loved by every Iudianitnand that he would carry the state at the com ing election. The speak r concluded by paying a grace ful compliment to the state of Mis souri, and urging his democratic brethren to fight the good fight until vic tory perched upon th-ir b inner. He warned the republicans of the sinking condition of their dismantled vessel, and invited them to take pipage on the staunch democrat ship. The j-piikir succee ?ed in elicitirg the closest a ttention of his tudience from the first, and arouiing the democrat to a high pitch of enthusitsm. It was a moat elo quent and log caI speech, and at it con elusion many went forward to grasp the hand of the orator. WICKED WOMEN. Their Number Increasing and Their Conduct Daily Be coming Bolder. The Existence of Several Assig nation Houses in the City Discovered. The arrest and punishment of old man Rollins for keepirg an assignation house oau.ed quite a ripple of excitement yester day, and loosened the torgues of several who ar aware of the existence of simil-ir estKblishmi irs in the city .One gentleman, who was exceedingly voluble on the sub ject, w?s loud in his condemnation of the autuoritins for not arresting the inmates and breaking up the d;ves, as he termed the in. Upon being asked bv the reporter, why he had never complained to the niarhal or ptlice officers, he replied that he was not aware until the arrest and subsequent trial of Kollins, that the law could reach buch parlies. 'Where are the houses you speak of?" asked the r porter. 'Well," replied the genileman, I am afraid to say much to you reporters, you have a habit of magnifying things and pardon me, ocr asiontlly of giving your in formant a little notoriety, which he does not te-ik and winch is not al ogether pleas- ant. Tbe reporter brought his most seduc tive powers of persuasion into r quisition but while his iuf rmant talked glibly, he was nevertheless very guarded in his re marks as lonamts and localities. "Where is one of the hou-es you speak of?" persisted the re.vs g herer. ,lAa I said awhile :g , I do not propose to give names at d locttions just at this time, but I w i say this much: One of the houv s I sj)"ak ol is Iocatt d ijkIi: in the business part of thtr city, and residents and business men of that vicinity have 1 ing been aware of the shameless conduct of the inmates of the ranche." 'You say it is an assignation house?" kYes sir, a fully iledted insli ut:on of that kind run ing iu lull blast every nigh: and does not object to doing a little business in the day time. It is conducted by a middle aged w mm, who, I belitve, is quite well kaown in the city." 'Is she a mairied woman, a widow or an old maid?" "Now you are asking leading questions again. "Perhaps she is a ems widow, then" rather timidly tuggeslfd th scribe. "Never mind a' out that, you will find out in due time," replied the very diicre t gentleman. "Will then, perhaps you will not object to stating she clas-s of p Oylt, who for the most part Irequent her house?" "Oh. they are of all cla s 'S, yonng men, dudes if you pie ise, middle-aged business men with now and then an old party, girl, and not a few married ladies. Tne ladies for the mcst part come closely veiled, and their identity h.-s only bteu discovered by following their carriages." "You must hi deeply ittrested in the matter if you have been s .ch a close ob serv r and taken the trouble to fcllw ca maces "Oh, you misund-istand me. I did not follow the carriages, I obtiined my infor mation from a party who did, and who re lated the matter to me without any eo'ic; tition on my part.'' The gentleman who had thus inadver tently subjected himself to an inter v.'ew o-j a rather delicate quet on, by fiis time be gan to act as though he were in hot water, and evidently wished that he had not said anything. The inquiries of the Bazooite were relentlessly pursued, howewr, and he was informed of some of the disgraceful scenes enacted at the assignation house, and witntss3d by h:s inforoiant and others, the details tf which are too filthy for pub lication. The meagre information detailed in the foregoing brief interview was no news to the reporter, who has "been on" for some time. Neith-r are the police strangers to the facjs herein detailed, aad some interesting de velopments may be exptc ed ere long. The Bazoo is informed on quite good authority that an assignation house is also being conductedan East Sedalia. This is a state of affairs demanding the mrst seri ous consideration of the authorities. Or dinary bouses of prostitution are bjd enoug'h, but these assignation houses run undf r the guise of respectability and pat ron'zed hj resptctable people, so called, are the very portds of hell itself and prompt measures should be taken to abol ish them. The keepers of these dives, for dives they are of the worst order, should be punished to the full extent of the law, and for the purification of society and in the in'erest of common decency, let the "spectable ladies, and gentlemen," who patronize these places, be held up to the scorn and loathing of an outraged commu nity. The Bazoo feals confident that the mar shal and police desire to do their duty in this matter, and trust that their action will be prompt and vigorous.

What Prominent Sedalia Bepub licans Think of the Macon Convention. The intelligence which wis published in the Associated Press dif-patehes ytsterday morning, to the effect that a republican state convention h eld at Macon City, had placed a full ticket ia the hrld in opposi tion to the fusion ticket, was received with considerable surprise by the leading re publicans of the city. As ill be noticed the ticket is compote! of straight republi cans, all of whom are very prominent in politics and many of them very able men. VVhen the news was first received in this city there wrs consternation in the racks of the faithful, as it was recognized that the ticket nomir a ed at Macon was in many respects superior to the so called fusion ticket, but tVy soon partially recovered from their shot k, and comforted themselves with the hope hat none of the nominees would accept. A Bazoo reprtssntative yesterday talked to a number cf prominent republicans on the situation. The Macon convent'on was regarded ?s a nonentity, and the opinions expressed, are so uniform,, that tbe mtervieAS proved to be (tuite mo notonous. Albert Parker said that he believed that as long as the republicans had gone into this fusion movement they should stand l y it and he btliev. d that tney woul l. He did not think there were any republican vo ters in Pettis county who would not sup port the ticket He believed that the con vention at Mhcon was gotten up by seme fellows for self glorification and to make such a record that heiejfler itey might be calbd "true blue republicans." He did not belitve that any of the gentle men nominated would accept, especially Gen'i Guitar and Gen'l Henderaon. fie con siders Mr. Ftrd a very acceptable candi- date. Lonis Hoffman, said that he believed, sll of the nominees of the convention. so cllfd, at Macon, would follow the ex, ample of Mr. Karne, of Jackton county, who had already declined. He thinks tne fusion ticket a good one, and fe Is confi dent that with it Marmaduke can be de feated, unlets the republicans make fools of theaisjlves. Postmaster Bl iir f aid that two or three self-important personages had met at it would ttii about three voles in the state. He did not think that any of the nominees would accept. Ex-Mayor Mesterly is of the opinion that tbe Macon convintion did not amount to much, and does not btlieve that a- y of tVp crentlenien who have received the doubtful honor of a place on the ticket, will accept. Sam. L. Hihleyman, upon being asked what he thought of the new ticket, replied, "oh, there was nobody up there and none of their nominees will accept." Cyrus Newkirk, who was standing near Mr. rJighleyman when the 1 tier was ad dressed by the reporter, was al-o of the opinion that the Macon convention amounted to nothing. P. H. Sangree declared himself as en thusiastically lor the Ford ticket, and feels confident that none of the nominees of the so cal ed convention at Macon will accept. L. A Norton, of the firm of Norton & Norton, is of the opinion that tbe Ford ticket will receive the united support of the republicans, not only in Pettis county, but throughout the state. B. G. Wilkerson, said that he had not heard much about the Macon convention, did not ktow by what authority it was called, yet after all, this was the true spirit. He had always been opposed to this fusion business. The Ford ticket, however he now considered the legitimate republican ticket of the state and should support it. Judge W. S. Shirk, said that a few cranks had met at Macon and nominated a licket. The ticket is a good one, but it is his opinion thai not one of the nominees will accept.
