W. j Legion having 24 Knights and 3 c fti Grand Parade in Awarding the Prizes at Night of of Missouri, came to an end vesterdu and the great majority of the attend ing Knights left the city on last night's train. The greatest measure of the success of the encampment is due to Sedalia Legion No. 5. They have been indefatigueable in their efforts to make everything go of! right, and the non-success of the encampment cannot be traced to a single defect or direlection of theirs. In truth the en tire affair was a success, except in point of members. The first event of the day was the grand street parade and it was wit nessed by streets full of people. The procession was formed on Main street in the following order : Gen. H. M. Deam and staff ; Grand Legion Stand ard bearer ; Grand Standing Guard ; Sedalia band ; Maj. Gen. Fred W. Averili and staff, mcuntcd ; Brig. Gen. N. S. Gardner and staff ; First Brigade First Devision ; Maj. Kusel, acting commander and staff ; First Brigade and Second Devision ; War rensburg, Quarry City band ; Sedalia City officers and council ; The Fire Department. The line of march was pursued as published in yesterdays Bazoo. The competitive drill for the follow ing prizes was to have commenced at one o'clock, but was postponed until three o'clock on account o the fatigue of the men from the parade, and practice drill. The list of prizes were as follows : Class A To best drilled LegioD of 24 Knights and d omcers, first prize $200 ; second prize $150. Class B To best drilled Legion of 18 Knights and 3 officers, first prize $100 ; second prize $75. Class C lo best drilled Legion of 15 Knights and 1 officer, first prize $65 ; second prize $50. Class D To best drilled Legion of 12 Knights and 1 officer, first prize $35 ; second prize $25. In class A, Benton L.e ion, Capt. Frank Senniger, of St. Lj's, was the only entry. In class B, the entries were Seaalia Legion, Capt. Wieman, and Warrens burg Legion, Capt. G. M. Patton. In class C, no entries. In class D, was entered Hannibal Legion, Capt. George CL Moore ; Boonville Legion, Capt. Andrew Summers ; Independence Legion, Capt. G. M. Arnold ; Brownsville Le gion, Capt. Pelot : Gate City Legion, Capt. Henry Young. The different Legions were formed in front of the amphitheater, and be fore the drill commenced were ad cressed for a short time by Mayor Stevens, who extended to them the . hospitalities and courtesies of the city and pledged himself to do all in his power to make their stay pleasant, and their encampment a success. The mayor was thanked in a few words by Grand Commander Deam. The judges, Gen. Ira Creech, of Joplin, Col. W. M. Maxwell, of Trenton and Gen. B. F. Foster, of Chicago, took their position, Capt. Senniger, of the Benton Legion formed his com pany in line and announced the Le gion in readiness to begin. He was ordered to go ahead and immediately did so. The other Legions followed the Ben ton in the order named above, twenty five minutes being the time allotted to each company. At night the prizes were awarded, with much short speech making, as follows : Class A Benton Legion, of St. Louis, $200 in gold. Class B First, Sedalia Legion, $100 ; second, Warren sburg Legion, $75. Class D First, Hannibal Legion, $35 ; second, Independence Le gion $25. SPECIAL PRIZES.

Returned Home Tuesday Niirlit. It Was a Mission of Just Yen geance on a Brute That Called Them. JONES RELEASED. He Proves Not to be Half Bad a Man as he Was Painted. so The readers of the Bazoo will re member the arrest some weeks ago of one K. E. Jones at Lamonte charged with securing a horse from Rogers livery stable at that place and driv ing the animal nearly to death. He was also accused of having stolen a horse from Mr. Keevers in Saline county and of procuring goods from Collins Sons., of Knobnoster, on false pretenses and was said to be a hard citizen generally. Young Jones w as tried on the Lamonte charge and sen tenced to a short term in jail and it was given out that he would be prosecuted by the other parties as s on as he was released. In the meantime, however, more careful in quiry revealed that the other charges against Jones were without founda tion and that he was per fectly innocent. Yesterday his jail sentence expired and Constable Bald win, of Lamonte township, came down to have him released, he having re ceived written instructions from Messrs. Collins & Sons, of Knobnos ter, and Keever, of Saline county, to do so, as they had no charges against him. On appearing before County Attor ney Lamm, however, Mr. Baldwin was i informed that it would be neces sary for him to go before the courts of Johnson and Saline counties where the charges had been perferred in or. der to erfect a release from them, and Mr. Baldwin left last evening on that mission with his prisoner, whom he is anxious to get off his hands, but finds some difficulty in doing so. A visit was paid to Knobnoster last night and they will go to Brownsville to-day. In conversation with a reporter Mr. Jones said last night, the Bazoo done me up in great shape when I was pulled and I hope you will do me the justice to exonerate me in as far my prosecutors have, for I assure I am not so black as I was painted. It is true I did some things that was wrong but it was the whisky I drank more than m i - m i Much speculation was indulged iu yes terday over the fact, that eleven of the Howard county delegates to the Select Knights encanpment had suddenly return ed home Tuesday night. No lucid explana tion for their conduct being given. From gentlemen who catue in eaily this morn inir. however, the Bazoo is enabled to solve the mystery. It seems that on Tuesday evening, a negro named Jim Al len Cooper outraged in the most cruel man ner the person of Ellen Thompson, the step daughter of David Theis one of the Knight t who resides five miles from Fay ette. Cooper was arrested and lodged in jail, and his victim was tenderly cared for, but her recoverv is said to be doubtful as she was greatly mutilated, choked and beaten. A to particulars of the crime the Ba zoo's informant was ignorant, but last night about one hundred masked men sur rounded the Howard county jail and after slight resistance forced their way in and taking Cooper from the jail they mounted him uKn a horse and taking him to the vicinity of his horrible crime, hanged him after which they perferated his carcass with bullets and rode off. Bevond this no 0 particulars were attainable. Years adds to the faith of those cured of heart disease bv use o' Dr. Graves' Heart Regulator. Ft thirty years it has proved itself a specific. $1. A Bad Fall. Ed. Brown the gardner living in the eastern u herbs, near A. McVeys, yesterday, fell from an apple tree while picking apples. The fall dislo cated his shoulder and injured his spine. He will be confined to his bed for sometime, but Dr. Bronson, his attending physician, says he will re cover. Only a few weeks ago Win. Brown his son, was gored to death by a bull at Mr. MeVoyi place. Dr. Harry Bane. Elsewhere will be found a telegram from Lexington briefly announcing the death of Dr. Harry Bane so long and so favorably known in this citv as assistant surgeon of the Missouri Pacific hospital under Dr. Jackson. Dr. Bane was a young man of high ambition and great promise and his unexpected demise will be a matter of profound regret to his many friends as well as the friends of his amiable and handsome young wife who during her residence in Sedalia was considered one of the leader sin so ciety circles. Only Two Bottle. Messrs. Johns ton. Holloway & Co., wholesale druggists of Philadelphia, Pa., report that some time ago a gentleman handed them a dollar, with a request to send a good catarrh cure to two army officers in Arizona. Recently the same gentleman told them that both of the officers and the wife of a well-known U. S. A. General had been cured of Ca tarrh by the two bottles of Ely's Cream Balm.

DOUG OUR HIDE from place to place Mayor Hanuan gave me a full account of his nomi nation an 1 eleetion to the office of mavor of Kansas Citv, Kas. He KanaClty Journil. Brother Alfred the shrewd detect ive who brought about the cm ture of the six train wreckers now in jail at Wyandotte, has made a state ment concerning Mayor Hanuan's con uection with the case and showiug how te chief executive f the Mttfced cities assisted him. it will he remem bered that Brother Alfred went to Wyandotte iu the role of a special en- republican and knew that he could Take theSO'DAY Bazoo voy from Powderly, whose missou was to liberate Oliver J. Uovd who was then under arres f Off derailing a Mis souri Pacific passenger train. As such he approached Mayor Haunan, who is a member of the Knights of Labor, and says the latter readily consented to help him carry out his .-upposed purpose. The statement was taken by a stenographer in the court house at Wyandotte some time ago, and the county attorney and the detectives have endeavored to keep the fact a m it secret. Ihe statement is as loiiows: FIRST MET MR. FeRiiCSOn, the sheriff of Wyandotte countv, on the morning of the 6th of July. In troduce! myself to him as a Knight of Labor by giving him the grip of the order, and told him that I was here in the interests of Brother Lloyd, who was then in jail. Told him that I wished to have a private consultation with Lloyd if I could be admitted to do so ; he says: "Certainly, go down and make yourself acquainted with the jailor ; he is all right ; he will ad mit you without questiou." I went directly to the jail, and on making myself known to the jailor as a Knight of Labor, was admitted lo Lloyd pri vately and had an hour and forty min utes' "conversation. I visited the jail from day to day before Loyd's case was called On that day while I was at the court house (which was on the 13th day of July), the sheriff told n.e that he wished to introduce me to Mr. Hannan, the mayor of Wyandotte He took me in the room behind the judge's stand and went out an 1 bkoujlit the mayor in, gave me an introduc tion to the mavor, and told me that he was one of the bo vs. 1 had a long TALK WITH THE MAYOR, and told him what my bveiniss was ; that I was instructed to come here troiu the east to get a continuance in Mr. Lloyd's case, procure him bail and take him away where he would be safe, aud I was also going to return and get the balance who were in danger of being arrested and prosecuted by the railroad company. He voluntarily consented1 to give me all possible as sistance he could and requested that when I came back after the others I should be sure and come to his ofhYe. (iave bail for Mr. Lloyd on the even ing of the .4th of July; took Lloyd to St Louis. Returned to Wyan dotte on the morning of the 17th: weut direct to Mayor Hanan's office; had a iette? from Lloyd to Mayor Hannan, requesting him to give all possible as-i-tance, and signed "Fra ternally yours, O. J. Lloyd." Mr. Hannan left his office at 10: 15 a. m. in a buggy with me for the purpose of finding Messrs. Hamilton, Vassen, Geers and Newport. We drove first to Armourdale, to Mr. Hamilton's house. There was no body at the house. Wc drove back on the street and found the lieu enant of the police forces, to whom 1 was introduced by the mayor. The mayor instructed him to find Mr. Hamilton the irefl thing he done and not to cease his ef forts until he had found him and sen' him to A CERTAIN SALOOU, whose keeper was the master work man of that assembly, who would in struct him what to do. We drove to several other places inquiriug for Mr. Hamilton, but c .uld not find him. We then drove to find Mr. Greers, but before we got to where we were going, we met another brother by the name ! Keys, who is a prominent member of the Knights of Labor, to whom I was introduced bv the mavor. and the mayor instructed him to go and see Mr. Greers and Newport and notifv them what to do, which was to meet me at room 34 at the St. James hotel that night, and told Mr. Kevs, also, that as he was familiar with all the parties, to find as many as he could and have them there the parties whom I wish to take to town. Im mediately after meeting Mr. Keys, I met Mr. Rockwell, who was another brother, also a member of the execu- easily get the nomination on the re publican ticket, and told in open assembly that if the Knights of Labor would support him he would make this (Kansas City, Kas.) a Knights of Labor town ; said they willingly ageeed to do so and he got nominated as republican candidate and through the Knights of Labor was elected by a majority of only 37. I asked him if he had made any agreement with them of any concessions, providing he A as elected ; he said he did ; he promised them to make it a Knight of Labor town and that they should dictate to him who he should appoint to office, which they had done, and he made the appointments according to their dictation. Hesavs : "I have thirty eight city officials under me ; thirty-three of them, all but five," he says, fare good and true Knights of Labor." He said that there were three or four of the others who were old men who had been holding office here for ten or twelve years anil he thought that Mr. Powderly would substantiate him in not removing them, as thev were old men and minded their own business, and he thought it was the policy not to put in entirely Knights of Labor. He says : "I will bet you the next elec tion I will be ELECTED BY 1,5H) MAJORITY." He said he had positively agreed before the election that he would never favor the railroad companies in any way ; that he would veto any bill he could, and that they had often tried to win him over by sending him passes, which they sent to him three different times, and he respectfully declined to receive them every time. These passea were from the Missouri Pacific road. The mayor said he de clined to receive his and sent it back each time. They sent it to him three different times. On the 14?h day of Juiy he intro duced me to several of his police offi cers in Wyandotte, and instructed them to give me any assistance that I might ask of them, and he says: "If to-morrow you see brother AHnd riding through the town here in a car riage don't mention it," and he says 4dou't see it at all," meaning that if they saw me taking Lloyd out in a close caariage, they were not to men tion it to anyone. On the 17th ot July he introduced me to several of his police officers at Armourdale, and told me that at any time I called on them for any assistance or to do an y ihttg tor me, to do so without question. Mayor Hannan told uie that he sent for the sheriff three times to come over to his office to see him during Lloyd's confinement in jail. The third time the sherifi came over and saw him, and he says, I told him that I wanted to e o him to get him TO RELEASE LLOYD from jail on his own recognizance, but the sheriff said he could not do it ; that he did not think he could do it. He says I could not blame the sheriff for, ol course, it would place him in a critical position. If it had not been any offense of the city against Lloyd, he would have ordered his re le tse at once, but as it was. the state against Lloyd, it was out of his juris diction. Mr. Hannan was with me from 10:15 a. in., to 5:30 p. ra.. at which time I told him that I would have to return to the hotel and get. supper, to be ready to receive the brothers as they came. the Case of the six tratn wreck ers. Hamilton, Boyd, Geers, Leary, Vasin and Newport, is well known to the public. On the morning of April 26, a Missouri Pacific train was wrecked near Wyandotte and the fireman and the front brakemaa killed. Suspicion at once rested on the Knights of Labor but it was some weeks Defore a clew was obtained. Finally the detective put up ?InM cash t'..r Lloyd's bail and he was takn to St. Louis w here other detectives evoked from him a com plete confession. The other train w reckers were then arrested and are now awaiting their trial, whic: will he comnieneed in the district court of Wyandotte connty September 13. Unwilling to Do. Bos;- Vest aud other Bourbon lead ers insist that a majoriiy oj jeople of Missouri en opposed to prohibition. What better thing be done, then, iu said that he was known here as aj the interest ol anti-prohibition than to suomit tne question to a popular vote and let tkt ract be definately estab lished that the state doesn't want the liquor traffic suppressed ? And yet that is just what the Bourbon party is unwilling to do, auder any circum stances. Globe-Democrat. A FEARFUL FALL.
