3 IN THE WRONG HOUSE. "Where TOO Mncfa TaUfflc fOOt -r , - ,. . , Brought a Citizen of Uoberly Tuesday Night A well known citizen, much given to the use of tanghdoot, the active principle of which i3 spin us termenti, has receutly moved his family 10 the extreme southern limits of South Claik street savs the Moberly Moni tor. He took an early start yesterday morning to get in a state of bewilderment that should cause him to banish care and let the old world jug muiig as il picaacu, ituti u.t uigut- fali he was ready to lose himself or be lost in the mazes and streets of the Magic City. Williams sireet was the same to him as dark, and a white cottage on the one looked all the same to him as the white cottage in which he had recently taken up his abode. It wa3 not very late, and he found the door unlocked and entered the room he supposed was hi3 own, and commenced to disrobe. Af er he had put his hat up-m a chir and ditto his coat, his ears were saluted by a scream like a locomotive whistle on the dis play of a red light. And then another scream. These screams nearly lifted the intruder off his feet. They had proceeded from two young ladies in bed. The tumult brought the old geutleman, the father of the ladies, who, warned by the tumult, instantly appeared upon the scene, and vocif erated, ' ''Scoundrel, get out of here or I'll blow the whole top of your head off!" The citizen "got" at once without another hint and in such haste that he left hat and coat behind. The pocket of the coat were looked into and his name discovered. The police were informed, but the father of the frightened fair ones was ire vailed upon not to bring a formal complaint as it was a mistake of John Barleycorn and not a case of burglary or attempted murder. The coat and hat were recovered this morning, and the author of last night's excitement was soberer and wiser when the garments were return ed to him. The Seventh Injection of Lympb. Dr. Max C. Starkoff gave Wm. A. Walter the seventh injection of Koch lymph yesterday morning at the Missouri Pacific Hospital in St. Louis. Four millimeters of the ger micide were used, and after inoccula tion the patient showed but little re action of pulse and temperature. Though Mr. "Walter's condition is sicians they are not ready to make any predictions pro or con of his ulti mate recovery from consumption. Green Ridge Kotes, Enterprise. Wm. H.

It was decided to rebuild the pres ent one half mile track, and Secre tary Burr says it will be made the very best in the state. The fair will be held the third week in August, and as the entrance fee in the speed ring will be five per cent of the purses instead of ten per cent, as heretofore, an unusually fine field of horses is expected to be present. Under the rules of the circuit to which Sedalia now belongs, the pre nium list cannot be below $5,000 or over 10,000 Last year the list ag gregated only 63,500, so there will be a considerable improvement in this direction also this year.

Wild Enthusiasm at the Result Hats Waved and Miouts Kend the Air. TopekaKan., Jan 27. Special. An immense throng gathered in the house to-day to witness the vote of that body for United States senator, many of whom were ladies. The gal lv, lobby and floor were crow.Ied to tr e speaker brought down his gavel and announced that the election was "on." As the members, names were called, they called the name of their preference. When In- galls received a vote, vociferous cheers Fl? answered the grand army adherents hooted, shout d urats," and similar taunts. The vote stood, Peflfer, 96; Ingalls, 23 ; Blair, democrat, 5. When the speakei announced the vote the scene beggars dercrip tion. Shouts rent the air. Lsdies waved handkerchiefs. Books, hats and papers were hurled through the house in their crazy enthusiasm, while one wild eyed man with oat straw protruding from his sh'rt col lar took off his coat and whirled it around and around in the air shouting in a voice that was a cross between a fog horn and a buzz saw. In the senate the election was tame, the vote there was 1 ngalls, 35 ; Pefier, 4 ; Elder, speaker of the h juse, 1. Senator Senior, from Coffey county, republican, voted for Pefier, the alliance, candidate. The two houses meet in joint soSaion at noon to mor row.

He is a pioneer of southern Kansas. His grandfather, William Pefier, was a soldier in the war of 1S12. His boy hood was spent upon a farm near his birthplace, Cumberland county, Penn sylvania, until he was mneleen years of age. He applied all his savings to acquiring books, and at that.ncro t. , fioo vu:umes. Jbrom the age of 15 to 19 he taught school a portion ot each year, principally in At ?A. 1 - t me winter monins. Ji rj ne was attracted to California, where he spent nearly two years in the mines, with but little pecuniary success, but as a joung man of abilitv so attracted public attention as to be tendered a nomination to the legislature, which he was compelled to decline on ac count of his age, though older heads advised him to evade the question of minority ana accept. In 1852 he returned to his old home and his pursuits as a farmer and teacher, but, in 1853, being married, he immigrated to St. Joseph county, Indiana, where he spent six years as a farmer. In 1850 he removed to Morgan county, Missouri, where he remained teaching and farming until the breaking put of the war, when he removed to Warren county, Illinois, and enlisted as a private in company F, Eighty-third regiment Plionis vol unteer infantry. He was soon pro moted to a lieutenancy. On being mustered out of service the young lieuteuaut settled at Clarks- ville, Tenn., where he practiced law from 1S65 to 1870. From Tennessee early in 1870 he immigrated to Kan sas and located in Wilson county. pursuing his proce;sion, and in de- ccmber of the same vear purchased the Wilson County Courier which he conducted for three years. In 1874 he was elected a senator from Tt -i r n lisou auu Montgomery coun ties on the republican ticket. He was chairman of the centennial com mittee and committee on public print ing and an active, useful member of the judiciary committee. As a labor ious, working member he had few equals and to his legislative labors was largely due the success of the cen tennial display at Philadelphia. in loo duage rener removed to Coffeyville, established the Coffeyville Journal and continued the practice of law. He was originally a democrat, but on the organization of the republican party became a republican. Some mie ago Judge Peffer joined the Far mers' alliance and became devoted to the principles of the new party which has come to power in Kansas. For ten years he has edited the Farmers Alliance.

TERRIBLE TRAGEDY. Miss Anna Luther of Rosedale fcho by a Would be Suiler. The Shooter Kills Himself aud Saves Judge Lynch a Job. Kansas City, Jan. 29. A sensa tional tragedy, shocking in its details and awful in its resalts, horrified the little village of Rosedale last night. Maddened by uurequitted love, Charles Goble attempted to assassin ate Miss Annie Luther, and then with the same murderous pistol ended his own worthless life by a bullet through his brain. For several years Goble, who is a young man about oO years old and an iron worker by trade, had known am loved Miss Annie Luther, a handsome accomplished and popular young lady of Rosedale. She has persistantly refused his address s and last nigh he attempted to make good his often made threat that she should not live to marry any other man. Last mgh t, at a few minutes after 9 o'clock, Annie Luther and her sis ter, May, sat reading in the front o room of the cottage. lha ased mother had relired to her bed upstairs and the two girls were alone on the first floor. Suddenly came a crashing sound as if the outside door to the kitcheu was being broken io With the instinct of fear, they rushed out from the sitting room to the kitchen. As thy ',a, rmt t.H sitting room door, Annie in front they were confronted by the desperate lover, revolver in hand, with his mind fully made up as to the awfu deed he was about to commit. Only once did he speak. With hate glar ing out of his eyes he ejaculated, "My time has come now." As he fired the first shot from the revolver which he held ready in his hand, Annie invol untarily threw up her left arm to de fend herself. The ball struck her arm penetrating the flesh below the elbow, then going through the arm again near the shoulder. Annie screamed and Mav threw herself up on the murderer in a vain attempt to stop mm. Throwing her aside, tearing an ear ring from her right ear in the struggle ne pursued 1113 tieeing vtctim,; who 1 i n ... ww was trying to find a refuge in the sit ting room. Just as she got inside the door he hred twice more. One ball struck the frontal bone just over the left eye, lofhctiug a jagged wound and probably glancing off. The third shot struck the right side of her neck aud passed up 'through her mouth. hamt and bleeding the wounded girl sank to the 11 lor. Believing that his work was finished the murderer step- pea insiae tne sitting room and put- A? if. l-t.l-lt l 1 iiug me pisioi 10 me lop or nis head sent a bullet crashing through his -? o brain. As he fell the pistol slipped trom his hand to the rocking chair by his side, one load out of five re maining in it. Crazed, almost, by the awful scene which she had witness ed, May 'La thur ran out into the yard screaming "murder!' at the top of her voice. Awakened by the shots aud screaming, Mrs. Luthur made her way down stairs to find her daughter weltering in her life blood and Charles Goble dying upon the floor. Attracted by the screams of May Luther, Mr. A. N. Todd, who lives a few hundred yards away, was the first to reach the scene. What he saw is told below. Other neighbors were soon on the scene and the wounded girl was put on a bed which was put up in the sit ting room. Dr. B. M. Barnett soon arrived aud set about relieving the sufferings of the girl. Meanwhile the body of the murderer, who breathed for half an hour after he shot himself, wa3 conveyed down the hill to an empty store next to the Catholic church, there to await the arrival of Deputy Coroner Gates, who was noti notified. Shortly it was taken to Mr. Gates' undertaking establishment. where the body was cared for and the ! bullet cut out from just back of the right ear, where it had lodged tinder the skin. J LS JOINT SESSION The Kansas Legislature Elect W. A. Peffer to the United States Senate. Enthusiasm Still at Fever Heat in Topeka and the Alliance Happy. Topeka, Kas., Jan. 28. (Special) The house and senate convened in joint session at noon, the lieutenant governor presiding, for the purpose of electing United Siats Senator. Upon the call of the roll the following was the vote : W. A. Peffer, 101; John J. In galls, 58 ; C. W. Biair, 3 ; Lucien Baker, 1 ; H. L. Morrill, 1 ; H. B. Kelley, 1. W. A. Peffer was elected to the Uni ted States senate, for six years, be ginning next March. The result cre ated the wildest enthusiasm and the air was rent with cheers, and for a long time after the session dissolved hand-shpkint? e'e, was indulged in. The State Capital. Jefferson City, Mo., Jan. 29. Sen ator Miller yesterday offered a reso lution instructing the committee on federal relations and public buildings and grounds to visit St. Louis, to thoroughly inspect the Missouri in s itute for the blind, for the purpose of ascertaining the feasibility of sell mg the present grounds and buildings and re-loeatiag in more suitable quarters. The resolution was held up, pending the report of the commit tee appointed to visit the state insti tutions. Senator Cochran of St. Joseph pok ed the senate in the ribs rather rudely this morning, by introducing a reso lution withholding any appropriation for the World's fair until after con gress had taken action on the force bill. Senator McGinnis said he wanted to point out some of the incongruities of the resolution. He started to make a speech against it, but had his at tention diverted by close questioning and the resolution went over under . the rules. The senate committee on elections has decided to report the Australian ballot law restricting it tn nities of 1,000 population and over. As a very general demand has been made to have the law apply to the entire state, it is expected that a warm fight will be made when the report is presented. J ust what reasons the members of the committee have for restricting the law to cities of 1,000 and more is not known, but it is said to be chiefly on the ground of the enormous cost to the people oi the state. The senate committee on judiciary will report favorably upon the mech anic lien law bill introduced by Sena tor Stone. The committee on private corpora tions has decided to report favorably upon a 0111 compelling telegraph com panies to accompany each message sent with a file showing time sent, re- ceived and delivered. PORTER ACQUITTED. A Notorious Tennessee Murderer Gets Olf Luckily. Memphis, Tenn, Jan. 28.- For tune has once more proved kind to Kenneth Porter of Paris, Tenn., who ha3 figured in as many murderous affrays as any man of his age in Ten nessee. This time he has been ac quitted of the charge of murder in the killing of Will Edmunds, his brother- in-law. Porter is the third son of ex Gov. James D. Porter. Edmunds was equally well connected and about as recklesf as young Porter. The trouble thfit finally resulted m trm tilling originated in a scandal con necting the names of Kenneth Porter and Edmunds' sister, whom he subse quently married. In a quarrel about nis timeJiidmunds snot aud dangerous- y wounded rorter. Vhen rorterhad become convalescent he met Edmunds on the street and a second encounter ensued, in which Edmunds was kill ed. An hour later Dudley Porter, brother or Hennetfrs and a son-in-law of Gen. J. D. C. Atkins, who was commissioner of Indian Affairs under Cleveland, was shot and killed by a young bank cashier named Alexander White, with whom he quarreled about the killing of Edmunds. White was tried and acquitted. The con duct of his sons blighted the political prospects ot lov. f orter. He would have been elected United States Sen ator two years ago but for his with drawal from the contest in consequence of the Edmunds killing. C'OHdnctor Kilted by Cars. Wichita, Kan., Jan. 29.
