THE SEDAJJA WEEKL1' ISAZiUO. MARCH 8, 1892.
BAZOO GOSSIP. Said Deputy Circuit Clerk Ed. Marvin lo the Gossiper: "There ia quite an extensive docket for the com ing term of the criminal court, which convenes tbe first Monday in April, being the fourth day of the montn, and several very important cases will be tried. There will also be an ad journed term of the circuit court held on the zist 01 tnis moniu, m tci to the partition case of Curtis Field, deceased, of which George W. Bar nett has been chosen as Epecialjudge." tnpnt business man to the Gossiper yesterday: The ladies of Sedalia, who are so nobly devoting their time and energies to the cause of raising funds for the erection ol a charity hospital, should receive the most earnest good wishes as well as the financial backing of the entire Anmmnnitv. It ia in a orand cause that of alleviating the eunerings of the distresed and helpless and these laditB have started out with the deter mination to accomplish their ends. All shoold unite in giving them every possible assistance." A well known politician and one who is intimately acquainted with the hiatnrv nf nlmnst every nublic man in the state, yesterday faid to the Gos siper: "Never before in the history of the state has there been a time mV,an the dpmnrrats of the state have been so much puzzled in regard to 1 ..V Z inut .lata ..ffirviuls Ivinlr for instance at the irovernor- hin. Some half a dozen of the best men in the state are aspirants. Lordy, thov am nil so No 1 how is a man to make a choice? Eithtr would be of the highest to the state.' Editor Van Wisker, of the Green RinVA Entfpnriae. made a very Rood euggestion to the Gossiper the other day. It was to the effect that Sedalia should strive for the location of a flx mill. He said: "There are very lew citnli pmernrisea in the west, and it seems to me it would prove a good in treatment here. Pettis county raises a auserior article of flix. and the pro cure such as oil. oil cake, straw fur twine, etc., finds a ready sale in any market in the world. Quite a num ber of operatives would necessarily be emp'oyed, all ol wnicn wouiu re dound to the interest of Sedalia." "Don't you know," said a promi nent business man to the Uossiper yes terday, "that outsiders are very quick tn nirlr 11 n anvthini cominz from tbe nqnprs here in anv wav derogatory to tha itv? The nrusoeritv and splen did standing of Sedalia is a matter of envy to more than one Missouri town, and they are on the lookout ior any thing they can use against us. For instance, the Columbia Herald of this week gave Sedalia a terrible roasting, and it quoted and took its cue entirely from the republican organ f thia ritr. Now. I crenerallv vote that ticket myself, but I must confess I can't see why it is necessary to aac rifice the city's interest for a little passing political capital." 6PB1NG HAPPENIXG8. This ia spring.

THE 1AYLOB CASE. A Very Interesting Clue That May Lead to Later Discoveries. Mrs. Taylor Talks Very Freely- Wp11 rIp." Mid Prof. F. C.

Sedalia a city so well recognized. not only in the state, but throughout tbe country, as one of the most peace- I -. T1.. 1 aoie communities was on xuesjaj, February 23, the scene of an outrage that not only shocked our own com munity, but resounded in other quar- lers. x 113 mam icaiuica iu tuc wkc rA wpll known that of the highway robbery of Mr. Chas. Taylor, of this city, and tne subsequent orutai as Qnlt. nn hia wife. But a few hours had elansed before every city and county official was on guard. Tn addition to this. the en- tire community responded to tbe call to aid in aDnrehendinz the dastardly assailant. Hundreds of men volun- tpered. and were sent in all directions. where it was thought possible there might be an avenue of escape. Money, for thu cause tlowed in like water. Axlnlifl. never does thin ra bv hilves There was a gigantic.outrage.and while tbe responsibility rests alone witn tne brute, as all tbe circumstancea win go to show there was that natural feeling not onlv renunance and horror of the deed, but that idea Ol a Slain on the fair name of the fairest city in all the commonwealth. Hence, ev erything in the bounds of human . .. . . . , rvuuihilitv has heen done lor tne ap prehension of the villain and tha. the AnnMimnutinn to be desired nas not been effected ia no fault of Seda lia or Pettis county. ANOTHER DESCBIPriON. Sheriff Smith has sent broadcast over the land the following circular, descriptive of the assailant: Negro between black and mulatto, 5 feet 10 inches to u feet in ueigbtn, wpitrht 165 to 180 nounds name un known, hut can nositivelv be i '.euti- fied beyond the question of a doubt broad square shuuldere, rawer erect, swinging gait, long slender nanus, sharp features.prominent cheekbones, hpnrv. thick, stubbv muitache. in- clinpd to nr. down over mouth. used very eood English for a negro ; wore dork rlnthpa. sack coat : also lone dark overcoat, skull cap with visor ; wore leather belt : had two laree re volver?, one nickle-plated, 45-calibre, the other about 33 -calibre, ana airs L-nifa with hraea hilt, carried car tridges in pocket ; was quick spoken, very conservative. THE LATEST STORY desired to go before the public in an absolute denial of the many gross statements which had been attributed to her in connection with the brutal deed and also repudiate anything which for effect had been published as coming from her. In regard to tbe tact that sue uui not Ecream and thus stve herself if nossible. she says that tbe robber as sured her that tbe first scream would be the signal for her death, and under the circumstances her almost trenzieu mind could not reason otherwise than that he meant to keep his word. Be sides this, too, she does not believe that her awful fright would have per mitted ber to scream as her tongue seemel paralyzed. She does not re member a single incident 01 tne Home ward journey, but vaguely remembers that her one idea was to rejeh a place where her assailant could not follow and that her limbs seemed to perform their duty mechanically. Benumbed with horror, she wa3 more like a dead woman than a living one and her physician has S3 stated a number of f.mes. The rnorler then asked Mrs. Tay lor if she w'as passive she could ident ify the wretch, and wi.h thouchtful care she responded that she ''whs not absolutely certain that she couiu io so. It was possible that some tone ot hia voice, or trick of speech or soma instinctive memory would come to her aia ana positively e?iauiu uia identity, but she ffould make no mis take and if the criminal were to be brought before her she would weigu everything with calm and dis passionate judgment and then decide. Refering to the outrage Mre Taylor said : "I really cannot believe that the rnhher himself thought of it until the opportunity presented i self and mL n!S nrsi ana ultimate uutui tn secure any more valuables which he believed we were possessed of and ...... r 1 to do this it wjs necessary to nnu a place remote from the streets which were hkelv to be traversed at any j - moment.
