THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO.TUESDAY JULY 27. 1886.
HEARD S SPEECH BAD BOYS. John T. Heard wrote a speech s onie They are Seriously Alaruied fur time ago and had it printed as deliv- j ea1lPIeirioIe,lre ered before the houee of represen-1 - tttives, and he would doubtless have j Several of the prostitutes who were dpliviwriit omllv there it he had P"ea yeweiuay, J have had time to spare from the more urgent duties of seing after his politi cal fences. This speech was intended to express his views on the "oleomarg ereDe" " buterine " ' creamery" busi ness. It classes it among the 4 le gitimate industries and says: UI am not in favor of taxing any legiti mate industry out of existence. ' If I believed that this tax would de stroy the oleomargerine industry I would not vote for it until the amount of tax was so reduced as to not pro duce that effect." u I am in favor of a tax that will enable the farmer and dairyman to compete with this new industry on an equal footing, but I am not in favor of a tax that will pre vent these manufacturies from an equal footing with the butter mak ers." In view of the fact that oleomarg erine is one of the most injurious ex tracts from fetid and decomposing animal matter, and that it is, with a view to its utter extinction as an article of food that legislation has been sought for, it is evidently the duty of every farmer and every citi zen who cares for the health and well being of the human race to see that Mr. Heard is not allowed to go to congress and exercise his peculiar and absurd views. HEARD'S HIT8. "I will resign my position in con gress before I will ever endorse or rec ommend John D. Russell for post master." 44 For the sake of peace and har mony, and in order to unite the de mocracy, I feel in duty bound to rec ommend John D. Russell as the most suitable, honest, truthful and capable of all the candidates for postmaster at Sedalia." If the people will send me to con gress for one term, the cup of my am bition will be full to the brim, and I will never ask for a second term." If I am nominated for congress and do not carry this district by the largest majority ever given any candi date, I will never ask for another office in it "The man who will forget his friends in his hour of triumph, is un worthy the trust or confidence of the humblest citizen." "The man who will seek to elevate himself or his friends by wilfully slan dering and fabfying an honorable competitor, should receive nothing but the contempt of ail men." "If I am sent to congress, and do not make a record that my constitu ency will be proud of, then let them forever discard me." "I am not seeking office for my own good, but for the benefit of the people of the district in Howard county" 4 4 Having been born among you, I am one of you'- "The name of one banker or merchant upon a petition, is equal with me, to that of twenty or thirty farmers or wor kink men." In Boone county, 4Born in your county, your interests are my interests, am I not one of you ? and having been to congress I know how to serve you. I am a statesman and a south ron ; Mr. Yeaman is only a preacher, and Cosgrove is a Yankee who hates southern people." The little passage at arms between Mr. Hatch of Missouri, and Senator Ingalls of Kansas, over the oleomar gerine bill does not show up much to IngalTs ciedit. It is far more proba ble, that the Kansas senator has some axe to grind for the Armourdale oleo margerine factory, or some other like Kansas institution, than that Mr. Hatch's Jersey bulls make hiti an in terested advocate of the bill. Be it as it may, however, it is a patent fact that oleomargerine is not only a per nicious, but a dangerous fraud that should be abolished by national, as it has by state legislation. The Sedalia Democrat is now en deavoring to reverse its record on the boycott, the higher order of civiliza tion. It is now endorsing the pun ishment of boycotters. loud threats that they would give away certain youug dudes and other parties in order to get even. In con sequence the Bazoo received not a few callers yesterday who stated that they had heard that Matt Ch Ids, Maggie Williams and other prostitutes arreted Wednesday night, intended to blow, and tell any number of lies on reputable young men. 4If they are l:es what are you afraid of?" asked a Bazoo man. "It is only the truth that hurts. These women will not dare to make any statements about you un less they have a pretty good founda tion for it ?" 4 4 But you know," said the young man with a blush ing countenance, "we might have been there." 4How should I know anything about it. If you are guilty, prepare to take your medicine." 4 'But you won't, will you I" 4 4 Won't what?" 44 Why publish our names, it will ruin us." 44 You should have thought of that before you got into -the trouble. I really cannot say what I will do about the matter yet until I consult with the manager." The licentious gentlemen then plead as they probably never pleaded before to have their names kept out of the newspapers. On account of their business, social and family re lations their names are omit ted this time but it will be the last. There is no principle of justice which causes these poor women to pay heavy fines for prostitution and shielding from exposure and pun ishment the men who frequent their lairs and assist these poor creatures in making a little better time on their journey to destruction and an ultimate terrible death. Let these gentle men(?) found in houses of prostitution be promptly placed under arrest and made pay the penalty prescr bed for such offenses by the ordinances. The city recorder has recen'lv adopted a rule preventing parties tried oefore that court from giving aliases, as was done in the past. So in the future this paper will publish the cor rect names oi all parties appearing before the recorder, so far as he is able to ascertain them. Missouri Fairs.

Osage Mission, Kas., July 20. The case against Willie Sell, charged with the mur der of his father, mother and brother on the 8th of last March, occupied the atten tion of the district court of this county to-day. A special venire of ninety men had been summoned from which to em panel a jury, but it proved insufficient and to-day Jujge Still well adjourned court at It o'clock and ordered another venire of forty men to be summoned to appear to-morrow morn ing. The interest in the case is intense. The m irders occurred a few miles north of Erie, in this county. Jacob Sell, father of the prisoner, was a well-to-do farmer with a family consisting of a wife and three children, Watty, Willie and a daughter, Ida The eldest son, Watty, at tended the normal school at hmporia last winter. On the morning of March 8th, about one o'clock, Willie went to a neigh bors and said some one was at their house with a hatchet after his father and mother, Mendall, to whom he went, returned with him to his home where he found the whole family had been murdered. At the coro ner's inquest Willie was charged with the murder, and he has been in jail ever since. The other day a letter was received by the editor of the St. Joe Gazettep urporting to be from two boys. Al Kirby and Saui Ryan, confessing the crime. It is now claimed that '1 Kirby is in New Mexico and by proper exertions could be apprehended. The feeling was at first very bitter against the prisoner, but has abated considerably of late. Two days have been spent in trying to empanel a jury to try him.

Nashville, Tenn., July A special engine coming north collided with the regular train on the Louisville & Nash ville railway near Duck river, forty-eight miles south of Nashville, at 6:15 p. m. and seven men were instantly killed. The col lision occurred in a deep cut with a sharp curve, making it impossible to see each other, hence the collision took place while both trains were running at full speed. Both engines are a total wreck. Following is a list of those killed : Henry Lauman and Robert Brown, engineer nnd riremao of the accommodation. Thad Beech and Pat King, engineer and fireman on engine No. 519. Monroe E. Wilson, baggagem aster. r Al B.

Green, who was in the smoking car. was thrown against a seat, cutting a gash over his right eye, not serious. The other person was a colored girl, name unknown, who was slightly cut in the face. The sight of the bodies is most horrible to behold, they being torn to pieces and scalded by the escaping steam. It wiU probably take to-morrow before the wreck is cleared. Later. Information shows that engine 519, which was coming north, exploded, throwing the tender 150 feet in an oppo site direction. Robertson was instantly killed, being disemboweled by a piece of iron. His watch was broken two and had stopped at 6:22. Thompson wos not killed as supposed. The seventh man's name is Henry Whitemore, who was fonnd with a dag in his hand wedged between the locomotive and the side of the cot Robertson got on the locomotive at Car ter's Creak, about twelve miles from the scene of the wreck. The train was pann ing forty miles an hoar at tha time of the collision. Krooi the New Orleans Ticayuuf. The i;host wouldn't walk anl the knowing ones those well up in ghost lore said it wasn't agood night tor tfhot-. aud they were right in their prediction. The performances i the ni va rious beings in the house of Mrs. Zopfi, at the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Bordeaux streets, i:- the .Sixth district, had gained great notoriety since last Wednesday night the first occurrence ot the mysterious rappiugs and noises and last night the largest audience ever gathered at the corner were assembled to witness the antics of the alleged denizens from beyond the grave. A cablegram from the other lie of the mystic river had been received yesterday evening by s me oue in di rect communication with the ghosts probably it was the manager ; at any rate when the reporter of the Picay une reached the Seventh station tne informati n had already been commu nicated to the police and sergeant Blouin informed the reporter that the ghost had concluded to rest himself to night, being exhausted from his exer tions of last Wednesday and Thurs day. He, however, volunteered to accompany the party to the scene, and at about :30 o'clock they reach ed there. A crowd of about 300 persons were assembled around Mrs. Zopti's saloon, ladies young and old, men of all sizes and deriptions, colored and white, were gathered there, and the side walks around the house on both streets were blockaded. Mrs. Zopfi's bar room was open and doing a rushing business, aud the crowd waited patient ly for the tirst rap. Mrs. Zopti was standing behind the counter serving the customers, but no unusual noise culd be beard, and it must indeed hve been a most powerful ghost that could make himself heard amidst the murmur of many voices and the con fusion which prevailed. Mrs. Zopti volunteered her service iu conducting the party through the house, though she also asserted quite positively that the ghost 4 4 would not walk to night." She was not in the least bit alarmed, and stated that she had slept in the haunted house last night and had not been molested or annoyed aller 11:30 o'clock, when the ghost retired. Her story, corroborated by several parties, was to the effect that on Wednesday night frequent rappings at the doors, on the armoires, beds, etc., had been heard, and she became alarmed and ran out of the house. While she was in the house the ghost or spirit appeared to accompany her wherever sue went, and continued rapping at the furniture near which she might be standing or on the doors she would pass. She ran to her young est child's crib and there heavy blows were struck. When she reached the sidewalk the rapping ceased, and ac companied by some ten or twelve men she re-entered the house. No sooner had she done so than the noise re-commenced more violently than ever, and the men ran out almost ter rified out of their senses. One of those who went in, who professed to be an unbeliever, said he did not think there was a drop of blood left in a fluid state in his veins. Mrs. Zopfi then mustered up cour age and remained in the house, but all that, night the noise con tinued and she was unable to sleep. On Thursday night the rapping commenced at 9:30 o clock, just as she was about to retire. Three distinct blows were struck on the headboard of the bed so hard and so hefty that she thought that the headboard was split. She looked under and behind the bed, but could see nothing, al though there was a light burning in the room at the time. Suddenly three raps in quick succession were struck on the armoire, and then repeated raps all through the house. Mrs. Zopfi's father, who slept in a rear room, was aroused and arose and dressed himself. The children became frightened and ran screaming to their mother's room. A large crowd was on the outside and some of them en tered, but as long as she remained in the house the rappins continued, until midnight, when they ceased, and up to 10 o'clock that night had not been resumed. Mrs. Zopfi ,who appears to be a brave and sensible woman, says she could not account for the noises. She had, she said, been threatened that she should never live in that house in peace and she belie veil thatsome in terested person was seeking to frighten her oat and then purchase the- estab lishment at a low figure. As regards the story of ghosts, she proposes not to believe in them, and says she can tend it as long as they can. A reward of $25 has been offered for the arrest and conviction of the ghost The story that the large, unoccupied three-story brick building on Deuord street, between ikuronne and Dryades As in the ease of the Sixth district ghost, it Aas a rbad night for ghosts. Application was made at the police stat on for a detail of police men to disperse the crowd, vihich was obstructing the sidewalk.
