LEXINGTON'S LAfKST. A Big Sensation in Which the "Noble Order" Cuts a Prom inent Figure. Lexington, Mo., Nov. 17. Assembly N 1,0J3, Knights of Labor, held a MM ing Inst nigh:, the prUKtfMtl object of which was t take tt s looking to the d' t ciion of the writer of a letter received by CStf Marshall Owen, threatening him and policeman Jese Hamlett witn violent death The letter was imputed to the Knights of Labor, an l me ubers of that order arc wry indignant at it, a- they bay it should not be charged to them, simply because the writer of it assert- his mem bership in tfie organiz tt:on. They (tier a reward of ilOO for the detection of the man, and will ask the MMtMH of other assemblies to employ a detective to ferret him out. The fo llowing is a verbatim copy J the letter, which has a coarseiy outlined coQia at th" head, underueath whi"h are the Word : Yot k oofni, And All the Beit The letter Mail as follows: Sik . I wish to inform you that you had better ke p your mouth shut and BOt talk about the Knights of Labor so much as you fiHi In en, and about the Irish. There you, Tutt, Hamlett and your spy. that black-legged Mink house , he has to look around for you fel ler while you do the dirt. If tint would not be the case, wh) do you !w him on a - i iTicer?

By order of the committee. Try and find out who. Then much excitemen here over the above. Some regard it, but for the foul lanemge, as a practical joke, but the im pression is that it is the method adopted to endeavor to frighten the Marshal for some imagined grievance. The Marshal, how ever, is not that kind, and if an effort is mde to carry out thethre it there will cer tainly be a tragedy. The action of the Knignts in on-rmg a reward h:is gained them much credit.

Bonne Terre, Mo., Nov. 17. A cowardly murder occurred at the Big River mill?, pome two miles southeast of this place, early yesterday forenoon. The facts, as near as can be ascertained, are a follows : It seems that for some time there has been considerable feeling letween the fam ilies of two farmers named Stockwell and Bess, Bess living as a tenant in Stockw?HV house. Some time since Stockwell notified Bess to vacate. Booj refusing to do so, Stockwell brought suit for ejectment. liess gaining the suit, he still remains in Stockwell's house Karly this morning one of Stockwell's sons, Bob ert Stockwell, a man about 40 years old, armed himself with a shotgun and walked over to see liess. On reaching liess' yard he met Miss Julia liess, a young lady ahout 18 years old. Same angry words passed between Stockwell and the girl, which ended in Stockwell tiring a charge of shot into the gril's breast, kiiliug her al most instantly. Stockwell then took to the woods.

The following ii a copy ol the resoluti ns adopted last night by district assembly No. J4 Knights of Labor with reference to the condemned anarchists. This assembly has jurisdiction ovei nearly ad local assemblies in Chicago: u BUBftbj Time for the exta ution ot the condemned so-called anarchists is rapidly approaching, and WiiEKKAis, It is a well known fact that the judicial machinery of the criminal court of Cook county is so manipulated that a lair and impartial trial is impos sible, therefore be it Iltsidved. That district assembly No. 24, Knighls of Labor, denounces the ve -dict iu the anarchist trial as the result of capitalistic and judiciary con-piracy un paralleled iu the history of criminal pro ceedings. Resolrtd. That district assembly No J4 will use every honorable mean to prevent the execution of this sentence, thereby sav ing civilization from a blot so foul and diabolical. AaoJOJOtL That a committee of three be appointed by thi? district assembly to vis it'Governor Oglesby if need be on behalf ol justice. Rcolved. That district assembly No. 24 call upon all its local assemblies to do all in their power in this direction, to the end that justice may be done. The resolutions completely overturn the action of July 2, f the diuict. expelling all anarchists and show, it is claimed, a complete change of sentiment among the great body of Knights of Labjr since that date upon the ijuestioa of the condemned seven. The district is composed of some tfb local assemblies, with an aggregate mem bership .! j:so(t. t tlie seven conde i inied men, PafftJOH is the only one who is a knight.

After graduation he continued leaching fbl two jean as tht piincipal of the Vermont Powell Acade my. He then began the study o law, en tering the office of Judye K. V. ('ulver, of Nw York. He was soon admitted to the bar and became the partner of Henry D. iarlner. The two shortly after came peel and after pnwpecting for a location returned to New York where they settled down to business aud soon had a large aud profitable practice. Mr. Arthnr rose rapidly in the legal ranks and was ioen engaged in some of the greatest legal con tests of the day, and mingled with the best stKNety of the great city. He was shortlv afterward married to a daughter of Lieut. Herncon, of the Cnited Slates navy, and the match is said to have been a I el happy one until the d ath of his wife, which occurred in 1HS0. Mr. Arthur's early ma ife. ted a love for politics He w&o a delegate to the first state convention in New York which or ganized in tl at state the republican party. Allhc ugh hi" nature loved p ace he had considerable love for military affairs, liefore the war he was judge advocate of the Second brgadc of 'he Mate militia. Vh n Edwie A. Morgan became governor of New York in 1NM, he appointed Ar thur to the position of engineer-in-chief of his staff". He was subsequently made in spector general o' the military forces of the -tale. He held this position until 18bo. and did it with much credit to him self and the state. His accounts were always correct. At the secret meeting of the loyal governors, held in 1m2, Mr. Arthur was prtsvnt by invitation, he being the only erson receiving such a mark of honor. In i860 General Aithur took up his law firactice in New York and nOJI acquired a ucrative practice. But lu meantime kept a trtu grip on politics and became one of the recognized leaders and manipulators of New York City and state olitics. In 1871 President Grant apfointed him col lector of custo u 1 at the port of New York. He was reapjiointed iu 1875. When Mr. Hayes became President he i-sued his cel c rated civil service order forbidding office holders fr 111 particip -ting activelv in poli tics. As Arthur was t that time Chair ! man of the Republican State central com mittee and did not resig i, the President deemed his conduct a a violation of his order and subtended him from office io July, 1878 Again Mr. Arthur returned to the practice of law. In 1880 he was nominated for the Yice Presidencv of the I nited State bv the Re publicans After the tragic death ofl Preside ut Ga field he became President! and ac eptably tilled that exalted position.
