VOLUME 18. SEDALIA, MO., TUESDAY AUGUST 31, 1886. NUMBER 14. THE DEMOCRACY. The Pettis County Central Com mittee Hold a Star Cham ber Session. Deputy Circuit Clerk Brady is Nominated for Justice of the Peace. A Campaign Committee of Five Good Heard Men are Selected. Agreeable to previous announce ment, the democratic central county committee met at the county court rooms yesterday, to make prepara tions for the campaign. The meeting was called for 1 p. m., but it was 2:30 p. m. before the vari ous members present and the candid ates got through caucusing. A very fruitful topic of discussion was the ad visibility of allowing Barney Scott to remain a member of the committee, on the ground that according to the as sertion of some of the members Mr. Scott had stated he did net propose to support all the nominees of the party. The matter was discussed at considerable length and the general opinion seemed to be arrived at that Mr. Scott should be requested to hand in his resignation, and of course there were present two or three patriots ready to sacrifice themselves upon their party's! alter and make any kind of promise in order to be appointed to fill the va cancy. At 2:30 Frank Craycroft, chairman, called the convention to order and Ed. Hurley, Secretary, called the roll of townships which revealed no delegates present from Lamonte, Smithton, Hughesville, Washington, Prairie, Elk Fork, Cedar, Green Ridge, Dres den, Flat Creek or Lake Creek town ships. Several proxies were appoint ed and the secretary stated that there was a quorum, fifteen members being present. All the candidates and a number of Mr. Heards friends were invited to seats, and the convention was declared ready for bnsiness. The representative from Houston ia arose and said he presumed there would be business transacted by the committee which they did not desire the public to know and he therefore moved that if there were any reporters present they be requested to with draw. The motion prevailed and the Bazoo's representative, who was the only reporter present, retired. The committee then proceeded to hold a star chamber session, during which M. W. Brady was nominated as a candidate for justice of the peace to fill the vacancy caused by the with- daawal of M. S. Conner. The following were selected as a campaign committee: Frank Cray croft, C. M. A. Chaney, Ed Hurley, Wm. Hoffman and Thomas In man, and the convention adjourned without taking any action, concerning Mr. Scott's case. PRISONERS FOR 1 HE PEi.

Phoenix may be a very nice man but he has a very poor way of shoeing it when he gets on a spree which is about as often as he gets money to do so. Yesterday was one of his occasions. Leaving home with some sixteen dol lars in his pocket ostensibly to buy provisions for his family, he Mled to return and shortly after dark his wife came up to hunt him. She found him stowed away behind the Star sa loon gloriously drunk. With the as sistance of Joe Gossage he was pulled out and put upon his feet but a search of his person proved the last nickel of his money had disappeared and his family as a consequence will go hun gry. He was carted off home t so ber up and be a nuisance to his dis tressed wife while doing so. A Shop Lifter. An elderly lady? some 55 years of age residing near Lamonte, was in the city shopping yesterday and while at the store of Hye & Guenther she managed to purloin three tidies, two splashers and a quantity of ribbons, in all about 4 worth of goods.

Lawrence Dfc no van, a printer employed on a weekly pa per, jumped from the Brooklyn bridge for :i wager of five hundred dollars at o.l0 this corning. A boat was in the river c n taining some friend, who picked him up. He was not injured by the jump, but vas immediately placed under arrest. He re fuses to tell who the parties are that made the wager. Donavan was again arranged at the bar of the tombs police court this afternoon. Th ecourt room was tilled with friend of the j nmper. Judge Dully s id this fe low wanted excel Brodie and thinks he is going to be a reat hero. He is going to poseinsonie dime museum or side show asfa hero. rHe then questioned Bridge Policeman Fiugibbons who could not say that Dono van had jumped from the bridge, his at tention was attracted by a number of vehicles stopping on their way over the bridge and their drivers looking down into tne water train conductor Michael Gilley said that he saw two pair of legs between the ties of an Adams express waeon and that one of the pair disappeared from view over the side of the bridge. He saw no person jump. He saw uo face consequent ly he could not recognize the prisoner. "Did you see him hang by his his hands and let himself drop" a.sked Justice Dudy of the policeman. "So." '"Did any one see him jump?" "No," replied both the officers and the conductor. ''Thea what is there,'' said Justice Dutty,"toshow that the man Donovan, is not "a frrud? " "He may have got a few men to get in a boat and row out under the bridge and had his friends make a great ado and say that a man had jumped from the bridge and they had come lo his rescue. Mv opinion is that tie never jumped from the bridge. I thick it is a ruse a subterfuge and a fradd. Donovan then said he did make the jump and the justice promptly ordered the policeman to make a charge against the prisoner of impeding ot traffic on the bridge. An affidavit was made out accordingly, based on IVmovan's admission that he lumped from the bridge into East river and thereby caused an ob struction to vehicles on the bridge. Then the case was again brought up and Justice Durly ventured the opinion that the man was a fraud: ''but," said he, ' this thing of jumping ofl high places and going over the cataracts at Niagara etc., by loon9 must be stopped. We read of them doing theses range things in tights and barrels and wanting to drop in m balloons. There i no heroism in this jumping, these men pander to the morbid taste now prevalent, go around and live in idleness. Look a! these big loafers lie added, that ought to be breaking stone or sawing wood. Ttiis thing is a craze, a brave man would not do it. It is simply brute courage that prompts it and no one but an addle-pated loon without an ounce of brains in his head womM undertake it If I was to let this fellow go seven or eight other fellows would try to do better than he is said to have done. Some other fel low would dive off and another fellow would put himself in an India rubber bag and be thrown ofl. I've notion," said the Justice severely. 4,to send you to the Island for ix months as a vagrant, so you would oe where you could not harm you self or anybody else. As it is I'll tine you $10 for having interrupted the travel on the bridge. 'Thank you,"' said Donoviu, extending'his hand toward the justice. "I dou't want to shake hands with you," replied Justice Duffy: ''I don't think your are a hero even if you did jump as you pretend." The tine was paid and Donovan walkdd out of court consid erably Liet fallen. A Sharp Battle.

Kansas Citv. Aucr. 27. Coroner tVTV- ald went to Independence this morning to investigate the reports of outrageous eon duct on the part of the county undertakers in regard to the burial of paupers. The matter w.is brought to light yester day when the body of young White the man who was found dead on the Chicago A Alton track a few days ago, was disin terred. Yesterday a brother of the de ceased, who lives in West Kansas City, went to Independence to have the remains disinterred and removed to this city for proper burial- When the body was taken from the groun t it was found to be enclosed in a rough pine box only about three feet long. The box looked like an old candle or small dry goods box and bore no resemblance te a coffin. The body had been jammed into this rough box regardless of the most com mon lules of decency and hurriedly bnried in a shallow grave. The remains were laid out in a decent coffin, brought to the city and interred in Elm wood cemetery yesterday afternoon. It is seated that this is not the first in stance of the sacreligious treatment of pau per dead in Independence, and that most of the paupers are buried like dogs in shal low graves, without coffins and no regard to human deceney or feelin?. Undertaker Carlat has the contract for the burial of pauper dead at 24 cents per body, but Judge Lynch, of the county court, says his juris diction does not extend outside of the city. The other undertaken say that it does. The contract calls for a plain, stained, pine effin, of regulation dimen sions, lined and I ecent. A bond of $2,000 is given for a proper fulfillment of the terms of the contract. Judge Lyn -h savs, however, thit when paupers are buried in small towns in the county outside of Kansas City the under taker sends in his bill to the county court and that it amounts generally to from' $10 to m.
