THE SEDAjLIA WEEKLY ISaZOO. TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 18fc7.
THE OLD TOBACCO KING. fetome Facts About Old John An derson, Whose Will Has Set Aside. New York, June 13. Old John Solace Tobacco Anderson's money and career are lfore the courts sgaiu. He was a f anny fellow, who. besides enjoying the glamour of a tremendous fortune, lived nearly fifty years with the shadow of the Mary Rogers murder hanging over him. Taken altogether the homestead at Tar ry town was a menagerie. The sp lend id house was never finished, and he lived in a s iit of apartments for years that looked as if he had just moved in and wousdn t be ret ted in a week. He had an idea that every f relation waited impatiently for his death, 1 tnd that several of them would help him t it if they only had the opportunity. Alter he had got to be a very rich man, wmch must have been thirty years ago, Lt- visited habitually a queer son of place r.: Prince street and Broadway, kept by a little consumptive man named Jimmy Connor, who had been an Irih cjmedian in small towns with the plays which i-.arney Williams and Billy Flor tnce preseated in New York. Failing in l.ealth, he established the rirst dram tic agency besides Parsoe'si that we had in many ye:rs. The concern wa- M the ;.:tors termed it, a "quisby fake." One large room was hung with circus and ..jeatrica.' posters. A cheap desk, a doz-n benches, and a few spittoons fnruiahed that room. In the one beyond, a cooking Move, a bed, a rouud tabta and an old hair s fa proclaimed it to be a combination Kitchen, dining-room, bedroom and parlor. Here dwelt the agent's wife and sickly ,:tle boy. One day the chipper little Mrs. ( -nnor, who had been a soubrette in several '.raveling companies and was one of the most chirpy of Irishwomen, went down to t.ee Anderson on a business errand. from tint day forward an acquaintance c prang up. Connor died of his consump ilon, aad Anderson was chief friend and adviser. Mrs. Connor dropped out of t-ight and it was years before she come to :r,e surface. A correspondent says of him : "1 was visiting in Tarrytown, and at my friend's home 1 heard such a lot of funny t Dings about the Anderson household that I felt curious to see the family. One day a small woman in glaring colors came trip ping up the carriage way, and in Mrs. An derson, behold, there was found the loufc lost Mrs. Connor, mistress cf the unfinished castle, a sort of ministering angel to the old n.an, who had more cranks than a hand- rgan. I asked after the agent's son. He was a sculptor in Italy. In due time Mrs. Kate Connor Anderson was a widow. She came to New York, and had a fine time. She is now in Europe." One of Anderson:s daughters married the ce ebrated Tweed ring judge, George Barn ard. He was a sallow, satanic man. full of dyspepsia and misery, and Anderson and Le had many a fight. One evening the J jdee took two ladies to his house m Twenty-second street to show them his reallv wonderful collection of precious -tones. Barnard had been a widower seme time, but Anderson used to drop in to see his grandchildren. He turned up that evening and the ladies withdrew to the parlor as he entered the library, in which the jewels were spread out. Harkly had two sentences passed between them when old Anderson said : "To the devil with these gewgaws," seized a handful of unset stones and threw them through the open window upon a grass plot. Barnard,though sick with the disease from which he alter ward died, grabbed the old fellow and jam med him up against a wall, frightening the ladies half to death, as thev were - ire this was going to be a murder. Then the servants got him to enter his carriage, after which a hunt for precious stones be gan in the yard. Candles and lamps were cqickly planted and the search was thor -ugh. It was followed up next day, but one emerald, a very fine one was never recoverd. A Murderous Knife. . Utica, June 12. Coroner Jones, of this I city, began an inquest Saturday as to the ' death ot Johanna Kosa crow;, who wa killed near Boonville by Clement Arthur Dav, with whom slv bad been living.

The friends of and ! Thomas B. McMauus, the wealthy real- estate owner of o. 3X1 WCM Iwenty-hrst street, who has not 1-en seen since last Wednesday, have received no word of his whereabouts. He left home, where he lived with his wile, early Wednesday morning, but said nothing as to his in tentions. It has since been learned that he stored a trunk lull of clothing and miscellaneous articles about a week ago in a Thirty-fourth street store-house. It is 1m known that McManus ha I disposed of considerable of his real estate, estimated at about Stio.OOO, but it is not yet known whethet he had this money or any pan of it on his person when he left home. Mis. McManus was too ill yesterday to be seen, and Lawyer Lippman, who lives in the same house, said he did not know with what bank McVlanus did business and could not say whether he had drawn on his account or not. This will be found out to day. McM inus had no bad habits, lived happily with his wife, aud. so far as known had not been speculating. It is possible that the idea of going to Ireland, where he has relatives, suddenlv struck him and that he acted on it. but his name does not appear on the out 'oine passenger lists since Wednesday His brother in law, Mr. Clinton, of Poughkeepsie, is in town engaged in the search. A general alarm for McManus has been sent out from police headiiar ters. Accused of Assault- Schenectady, June 13. Jotiah Warner, a Glenville farmer, not quite nineteen years id, was held for the Grand Jurv Saturdav on a charge of assaulting Bertha Ferguson, a gretty girl of thirteen years. Her father is William rerguson, a neighbor of War ner. The girl says that the assault was committed in a dense woods through which she had to pass on her way to school. After she had told her story to her father he demanded, it is said, of Warner $200 in settlement of the wrong to his daughter, bat, after some dickering, accepted a nine month's note for half that amount, indorsed by Warner's father and mother. The matter was brought to the attention of District-Attorney Vedder, who caused Warner's arrest yesterday. Warner says that he intended to assault the girl, but did not. There is talk of ar resting Furguson on the charge of cam pounding felony. Warner has been mar ried only eight months. Caught by His Own Detective. Springfield, O., Jane 13. A special gives particulars of a sensation at Troy, Miami County. For several weeks vonng girls of the best families of that town have been receiving shockingly obscene letters through the mails The parents of the girls secured a detective to work up the case, who to-day succeeded in locating the criminal, who proved to be Sherman Kerr, one of the men who had hired the detec tive. Kerr confessed, bnt was not arrested. It is expected he will be prosecuted by the parents of the girls. An Inventor lias His Head Cut Off Utica, N. Y.. June 14. Warren B. Sherman, aged fifty-five years, mof Oneida N . Y ., the inventor of a patent automatic railroad signal, was ran down by a cheese train near the central round house in this city at noon to-day and had his head cut off. Conductor Benjamin Blackburn, of Schenectady, who was in charge of a freight train, with others, was examining the invention at the time of the accident. Blackburn's left leg was cut off at the knee and he is now in the hospital in a critical condition Sherman's signal had just been adopted by the company. i Strikers Riotous Cleveland. U., June lo the strike on the ore docks of the New York, Pennsyl vania and Ohio railroad culminated in i riot yesterday afternoon. About a month ago the men who load ore into cars at the docks, struck for '2 a day, an advance of 25c. Since then their places have been filled bv colored men from the South and foreigners brought here from Chicago. For a fortnight the workmen have been given police protection, as the strikers, who are Irish, have threatened to drive them out of town. This afternoon, Ceorge Vactor, colored porter at the Central Depot, took Supt. O Brien, of the New York, Pennsyl vania and Ohio road, his dinner to the docke. The strikers, who had congregated m large numbers, attacked him ami, knocking him down, beat him in a terrible manner, and would have killed him had they not been driven away by the police. At the 6ame time, John Mannion, living on Division street, started home to din ner. He is unloading ore from the vessels and is not a striker nor a "scab." He was assaulted just the same, however, and had his leg broken. The police called for as sistance and a patrol wagon dashed to the scene and the officers dispersed the mob. The 'railroad company, seeing that they would have to act quick to prevent a bloody scene, loaded their important col ored men into a train, and, amidst a shower of brick and ore, steamed away to the suburbs. John Joyce, one of the men who assaulted Vactor, has been arrested. Did Sleetzcr Do It ? Vinita, L T., June 15. Deputy United States Marshall I. S. Bell has in custody at this place a man believed to be Joe Sleetzer, who is wanted to answer for mur dering the Mahoney boys in the Cherokee Nation in February 1886. Fat McCarty was convicted ef this crime and hanged at Fort Smith some months ago, and it has always been known that two men com mitted the double murder. The prison- er claims his name is ha iwchois. and says that at the time the murder was committed he was working on the railioad at Aledo, Texas, and was turned over to the officer here by Ch orge W . Todds, a de tective, who has had him for about two weeks. Nichols, or Sleetzer, came to Eureka in a box car, a tramp and was taken in on the description sent oat by the United states authorities. His identitv has been partially abolished, and when complete he will go to Fort Smith for trial. Notice! Sedalia, Mo., April 27, 1887.

In over hauling some old paper in the office of the lioard of County Commissioners at the Court-House to-day, documents having a face value of about $150,000 were un earthed. The papers bore the signature of Lovell Gore, and their perusal calls to mind the mysterous denth of a man of that name, in this county about five years ago. In the summer of 18S2 a dirty, unkempt and ragged stranger made his ap)earance and encamped by the roadside, where he ate a frugal meal begged from a neighbor ing farm-house. The next morning the old man was found unconcious and almost dead from au assault which had been made upon him during the niaht while his clo hing and the wagon had evidently been searched by some one having knowl edge of valuables in bis possession. The old man died in a few hours. Sewed in his coat were found several letters and pa pers, but these were subjected to a very superficial examination, and were then sent to this city, where they were tossed into a pigeon-hole at the Court-House. To day s examination of these papers showed them to consist of promissory notes, bond, deeds to Yermont land and other evidences of wealth to the aggregate amount above -tated. ploytd as a seamstress. sail she had work ed at the asvlum lour vears, and that during that time she hat! never known of Paola, Kan., June lj.

Thomas B. McManus Mysterious ly Disappears After Sel ling His Property. New York, June 14 W. L Lippmann, a lawyer residing at o. 3-1 West Twenty-eighth street, last night called at police headquarters and reported the disappear ance of 1 nomas t. McManus, a wealthy real estate dealer, living in the same house. Mr. Lippman, who claims to be counsel for Mrs. McManus, said that the missing man had been for several weeks past disposing of his property. When last seen, Wednesday, he was supposed to have between $60,000 and $70,000 in his posses sion. Ou that day, also, it was discovered he had packed a traveling trunk with some of his best apparel and a fowling piece and had it removed from the house. As he had said nothing to his wife about making a trip, she did not tnink any thing serious abonnt the circumstance un til he failed to come home that night or next day. Then a search was instituted among all their relatives and acquain tances, but all in vain. The hotels and ciabs he being a mem ber of a couple of the latter were also searched, and as a last resort the wife dele gated Lawyer Lippman to ask the police to aid in the search. Mrs. McManus said last night that her husband had been act ing strangely of late, and she was appre hensive that he was temporarily demented. It had not occurred to them that perhaps McManus had gone abroad by one of the transatlantic steamers since Wednesday, and therefore they neglected to search among the steamship offices, which will be done to-morrow, if he should not mean while turn up. A general alarm was sent out from Headquarters for the man. He is thirty- eight years of age and is 5 feet 8 inches high, and of medium build. He has a light complexion, blonde mustache, light hair and bine eyes. He wore a brown mixed suit, brown derby hat and low-cut shoes. Besides the large amount of money he had with him a valuable dia mond pin and a gold watch and chain. the examination oi M. L. Parker. Ma his direct examination he uglified that he was acquainted with the condition of the track at the eurve where the wreck occurred, as he had walked or riduen over it every day for eight) yea is previous. He had notice J that there were several rotten ties nearlv ail bad. The surface oi the road bed was quite uneven, and he had noticed a wavering,totteriug motion on the cars. In going over this place he saw on the morning of the wreck a lot oi loose spik?, some out. He thought that the average rale of tpeed in going over this curve was tilteeo miles an hour. He arrived at the scene of the wreck at o:30 on that morning, and noticed tha. the road bed for a distance oi three rails had shoved out toward the river. He saw three raik lying back of the engine. One was broken and two were bent. One piece of the broken rail was fastened to a bent rail by a pair of fish plates. He thought the engiue had left the track three feet north of the brat rail and concluded that it was the spread ing ot the lails that had caused the engine to leave the track. Klias iieck leing recalled stated that he went up the river in a boat about 7 o'clock . r ft l me morning oi me wreca ami saw no clawbar sticking out of the mud. This m truing J Feeney testified that he had stayed at the switchmen's meeting until 10:30 the night of the wreck. Jack and Mike Leaiy were at the meeting, and the last oLes he saw Were the Leary bov.. After the meeting adjourned he started tr the Knights of Labor hall and the Leary boys started for home. When he arrived at the Knights of Labor hall he did not see Lloyd or Newport, but saw Oeorge Hamil ton, William Vossen and several others. About 11 o'clock Lloyd and Newport entered the hall. He went to get a drink at the saloon and when he got back to the hall the last time it was about VI o'clock. Vossen had gone but Lloyd and Newport were still there. He stayed there until 3:30 a. m., when he left for home. At the time he left Hamilton, Lloyd, Newport, Monahan and other per sons were still at :he ball. n cross-examination he testified that Hamilton was chairman of the executive board during the strike, and gave all the information in relation to the strike and the state of affairs at other points. He heard of the wreck the morning of the -6th at the Knight of Labor hall. He saw Lloyd and Hamilton at the hall and recognized the wig that Hamilton brought to the hall. He saw one or two pistol at the hall and knew one of them was Hamil ton's. He saw Hamilton have on a rub ber coat that night. Yesterday afternoon Lloyd gave his tes timony, which was afterwards frequently rebutted by the state. The taking of evi dence was then closed. All the witnesses who testified in behalf of the defense to day stated that the defendant was in the Kniahts of Libor hall all night when the wreck occurred. It was rather a difficult matter for Judge Hind in an to preserve order among the counsel. After the pleading to-day, the case will be submitted to the jury and the case of Newport will begin. LABOR NOTES Won't Wear His Coat Shenandoah, Pa., June 15. Jack Show, noted Republican politician, of Shamokin, visited this city to-day and at tracted much attention bv strolling along the streets costless. During the Blaine- Cleveland campaign he worked hard for the Plumed Knight and. when he learned of his defeat, he exclaim, "I'll never wear a coat while a Democratic President occu pies the White House.'1 He has kept his promise. He has just returned from a trip to fecotiand, which trip he also made coat- les. In winter he dons two or three suits of underclothing and is thus enabled to withstand the cold. The carpet manufacturers could turn out much larger quantities if the market called for it. The Southern cotton mills are all sold up to the looms, and the stock of goods is the lightest we have bad for several years. Three Ontario weavers have in vented a process for weaving clothes of mixed materials so that they shall be inseparably woven, showiog one surface of hemp or jute, and the other of cotton or wool. The striking car-loaders at the ore docks of the New York, Pennsyl- vania ana unio railroad were out m force yesterday morning, and drove the colored men who were at work into cars, which were immediately pulled to a small town just without the city. The strikers then visited the docks of the Cleveland and Pitts burg Railroad Company, the Valley Railroad Company and the Cleveland Rolling-mill Company, and induced the men at work there to join tbem. No violence was offered and no dam-4 age done to property. Dock-hands all along the river are now out, and the police are afraid that there will be a collision some night. Wool Wool Wool Wool.

She said the nearest she had wn of a case of severe punishment SH hfu a boy. named Henry Lesher, was brought in to have sticking-plaster applied. - she BBMlsmcod matters, he had been wrestling and fooling with ex-Caretaker Knight. They begun in fun. but the boy hurt Knight and the caretaker lot his tempe r and stamped on his face. :. erc Morrison, r ten years an engi-rt-er at the asylua, said that the boys were re rr-t!c ;md u isatistied now than he had known them before. It generally came on in streaks. They went about and called their playroom a prison and even marked it on the windows Mr. Morrison said that when be iad in The World about the bofi calling Mr. Demirest the "bull-dog" he in quired of one boy if i; were true. He was told that the bovs had been in the habit ol calling the Superintendent bad names among themselves. In relation to extreme punishment, Mr. Morrison said he did not know of an instance where it had been in dicted fcy Supt. Deraarest. He had heard of the story of whipping all the boys in the dormitory. He had seen the wound on the boy's face and had understood that it was made by Knight. The boy, who has since left the asylum and gone West, told him that Knight knocked him down and stamped on him. The strap and the bell-rope mentioned as the ins ruments of punishment used by the Superintendent were inquired into. The strap is of leather, about ten inches long by a half incu wide. The bell-rope is a leather cord as big around as a man's finger. The strap, Mr Demarest says, he commonly uses. In regard to the bell rope, he says he heard that Knight used it on a boy one day, and so he took it into his office to get it out of his way. He did not remember ever having used it to pun ish a boy. Superintent Demarest further said : "The boy Lesher, who, it now turns out, was injured by Knight, 1 questioned my self with reference to the wounds on his face. He told me he got them by a fall. There was a boy named Quinn, whom 1 struck in the face by accident. He's here yet. I wss taking the place of a caretaker one day and he was die-obedient. I went to hit him on the shoulder and he ducRed his head sideways and caught it on the face. 1 didn't know that it left a mark. That is the onlv bev 1 ever struck in the face.' The directors said yesterday that they were satisfied with Mr. Demorest's explanation. CHAPTKa I. 1 wf taken m k a year go With hillicus lever."

One Insane Brother Dies. New York. June 16 George Hurd died at the Long Island Home, in Amiiv ville, yesterday morning, of paresis. He m aa tiii was iorty vears oia, ana nad oeen insane for fifteen years. There are three other brothers in the same retreat. They are Charles, Walter and Schuyler Hard. The latter, who is the youngest, is twenty-six, and is suffering from melancholia. The other two are amicted with chronic insan ity. All the cases are incurable. The patierts are the sons of the late Judge Hurd, of Geneva, N. T., whe left an ample fortune to provide for their care. Their cases have attracted widespread at tendon in the medical fraternity. Their insanity is unaccountable. Their family has been traced back 250 years, Dr. Elon N. Carpenter, Superintendent of the home, said yesterday, and no trace of insanity can be found.
