Y VOLTME 18. SEDALIA, MO., TUESDAY JI NE 29,188a NUMBER 5. A SEDUCED BY SOPH I A. A Minister of Nevada Caught in a i Jason With a Nejrxo Wench. THE KNIGHT OF LABOR CANDIDATE. With his plume waving above the "Noble Order" emblem, the famous John Trimmer is laboring hard to keep the pot of sectional hate boiling and the flame of passion against an honorable rival burning. John Trimmer, alas! alas ! for your cause, The people can see through your game ; They've sounded you well and know you are false. You cannot hide facts by a flame Stirred up gainst an honorable man, John 'Jj., A man who is loyal and true, Who stands by his friends, and holds in contempt A dishonest Peter, like you. You've tried to explain those Cherokee claims, And cock and bull stories have told ; But, hand-shaking Johnny, remember the fact Brass never will pass as pure gold. You've traded your friends for the pottage, John T. John Trimmer you've trimmed, but in vain. The man who has broken his fealty once Can never be trusted again. So, Johnny, pray pause in your treacherous cou.se; Don't think that the people are fools. f They're on to your record, "that pension" and all ; You cannot make horses of mules, Nor can you make people who know you, John T., Your sycophant tongue and yotlr smiles, Believe you are fit for an office of trust They see through your grimacing wiles. Oh, no ! Johnny T., it cannot be done, As surely the future will tell ; When hand-shaking Johnny, the Trimmer, alas ! Is given the bounce of farewell.

The particulars of the case are unfit for publication, but there is no desire, either on the part oi the church or those who had been Elliott's friends, to screen him from the censure which his conduct has so weli deserved. The charge against him is a liason with a m.'gro woman named Sophia McNeil, the divorced wife of Joe McNeil. DISCOVERY OF HIS il ILT. The discovery of Elliott's guilt was made through his nievtnger Ira IteShazo. A note for the woman was entrusted to Ira by Elliott, but instead of carrying it direct to the woman he showed it to one or more persons. The matter leaked out. The mesbage was an agreement to meet the woman, and several indignant citizens decided to egg the immoral minister while on his way to fulfill his engagement. This arrangement came to the ear of one more thoughtful than the others, and pityiog the family, he warned Elliott not to keep the engagement. The officers of the church soon gained information of the immoralities of 'El liott, and at once proceeded to an investi gation of the case. He was told of the charge against him, but entered a general Shawnee Bolts. Topeka, Kas., June 26.

Ihe Temperance Rally at La Plata, Mo. An Enthusiastic Meeting. La Pfatta. Ho . Jane 26. The great tem perance rally and jubilee, which has been advertised for three weeks to take place on June 25, iuiiy materialised yesterday. The occasion was looked forward to as one of North Missouri's greatest efforts, and the fondest hopes of the most enthusiastic tem perance advocate was fully realiaed. The day was perfect, excepting the dust oc casioned by the drouth. At an early hour people from every point of the compass began to pour in, and at 11 o'clock the streets and town were crowded. A procession was formed at Good Templar's hall, headed by the La Plata Cornet band, followed by carriages, buggies, horsemen, wagons, pedestrians, making a procession of great length. They proceeded to M. C. Davitt's grove, in the suburbs, where Mr. Jacob Reder, Grand Worthy Chief Tem plar of the state, addressed the people. At the close of his remarks a regular old-time dinner was indulged in and enjayed. After the repast the multitudes were re assembled by the band, and speaking re sumed. Rev. J. M. Gaiser and Rev. W. A. Hanna, of Macon City, and Col. J. J. Hick man, P.R.G.P.of the world, addressed the people. The gentlemen talked as if they were inflamed with hatred for the awful work of rum and its allies. They electri fied the audience with their eloquence and powerful arguments. Col. Hickman is one of the oldest and most talented of temper ance orators in the state, and he leaves a lasting impression whenever he talks. Never in the history of this country were the people so thoroughly aroused on this sub ject. At the close of his speech, 6ol. Hick man took his aeai and immediately fainted away, and was thought to be in a serious condition. Physicians were called, and he was sufficiently restored to be conveyed to town in a barouche, and left for his hme this morning in a feeble condition. A rousing night meeting was held in the city park, at which gathering about 1,000 people listened to W. J. Reese, of Bevier, W. Crandail, of Brookfield, and T. Pixey, of Jonesburg. The addresses were enthu siastically received, and the meeting clos ed at 11 p. m. with three cheers for home against the rum power, for morality L against vice, for God and humanitv against the devil and murder, threat good is ex pected from this work if the orators do uot turn it into personal political gain for a few who seek honors. Proud Porter. New Yok, June 26. The following tele gram was sent to-dav by General Fitz John ' Porter to Senator m. Sewell, of New Jer- ! sey, which explains itself : ! "God bless you and your associates for your kind, generous and earnest efforts in my behalf. Now I amtindeed happy.

A Doctor Downed. Joplin, Mo., June 2C. Yesterday at Belleville, a mining camp six miles north west from here, an altercation occurred between Wm. Allen, a miner of that place, and Dr. J. B. Morgan, proprietor of Mor gan's drug store, in this city, when the to. mer became so enraged that he as saulted the doctor with a chair, striking him over the head and inflicting a wound, which will, it is feared, prove fatal, as the doctor is frail and n poor health. Allen was arrested and placed in confinement in this city to aw ait the result of his victim's wounds. Drowned. Boonville, Mo., June 26. Matt Cooper a 12-year-old son of Mr. Ike Cooper, who resides on the Chris. Schlotzhower farm, was drowned yesterday. He, in company with his 8-year-old brother, M as sent to Mr. Tivis', a neighbor, and at the confluence of the Mount Vernon creek and Petite Saline met a larger boy and they determined to go bathing. Matt entered beyond his depth and was drowned. The brother began cry ing for aid, and Mr. Ed Hill responded, j and finally succeeded in finding the body of the unfortunate lad. More ParneUites. Cincinnati, Jane 26.

The ground is clean t and the crop has been thoroughly worked. Large portions of the crop in Missouri and Kansas are now made.

Or borne, former minister to Chili, has re ceived a letter from Hon. Domingo Gana stating that that gentleman has been named by the Chilian government as their minister at Washington. Mr. Gana, who now represents his government at the court of Don Pedro, expects to arrive in Wash ington about the 4th of August. confronted with the witnesses. Ira Ie Shizo and Mose Booze were called. They entered into all the particulars of the mat ter. Among other things Mose said that he had driven Elliott around in his car riage at night. AN EMPHATIC DENIAL. Elliott persisted in his denial, but could formulate no storv to account either for 1 the direct evidence or the mas- of circum . stantial proof which was brought against ! ... a . r .a lum. lne pasfOff ana twelve oraeers oi tne church voted their opinion as to his guilt or innocence and by a unanimous vote he was pronounced guilty. The saddest part of the whole thing was the burdeu o grief which it brought to the depraved man's family. A committee was appointed by the church officers to break the news to Mrs. Elliot, than whom a more perfect lady never lived. It was a terrible ta. k, but was carried out to the let ter. The grief stricken lady could not re alize the deptn of depravity to which her husband had fallen. It was a blow far more cruel than death. ELLIOTT 11AKTILY SKIPS. Last night Elliott bought a ticket to Lexington, Kentucky, and took his de parture. Before leaving he was told by a relative of his wife to stay and vindicate himself if he was innocent, but to leave and never return if he was guilty. To-day Mrs. Elliott hied a suit for di vorce, and it will probably be granted with as little ceremony as ever attended a simi lar separation. To-morrow the church will formally withdraw from Elliott, and that will be the last of his connection with the Chris tian church or its ministry. For a number of years Elliot S as preach ed and has at times been in charge of important chuiches. A short time since he served for some time as pastor of the church at Fayette vi lie, Arkan sas. Recently he has been preaching at Moundville, but ten days since received notification that he was not expected to fill the pulpit at that place longer. SYMPATHY FOR THE FAMILY. To Mrs. Elliott and her family the peo ple of Nevada extend the most heartfelt sympathy. They feel that she has been deeply wronged and their hearts are touched by the suffering she is compelled to endure. There is no manifestation of good will toward Elliott. His crime was not only against himself. It was a terrible punish ment to his innocent family. His loath some depravity extends further and gives a pretext for slurs upon the religion which he professed. The prompt action of the church in its investigation and withdrawal is to be com mended even by those who have no fur ther interest in religion than its preserva tion of morality. Coming Methodist Conference Maryville, Mo., June 26.
