One of the most fiendish murders and robberies ia the history of Washington county occurred this afternoon on the Middletown road about 13 miles from here. Samuel T. Fer guson of the Ferguson Construction company of Pittsburg was instantly killed and his secretary, Charles L. Mar tin of Cincinnati was fatally injured. The two men were driving along the road in a bugy, carrying $3,000 In cash with which to pay off some of their men employed on construction work along the line of the Wabash railroad, when sudden ly an explosion of dynamite in the I ad way literally tore the rig to pieces, killed Ferguson outright and threw Martin 20 feet, tearing his left arm almost from the socket. Jt has been learned lhat two men, sup posed to be i'oles, placed the dynamite in the road for the purpose of killing Pay master Ferguson and had arranged to ex plod 8 it by means of an electric battery. The satchel containing the money is miss ing. ". . Two suspects are under arrest in the camp of the construction company near the village, but the farmers of the section who are scouring the country for traces of the murderers believe they have one of them at bay in an abandoned jnine about a mite and a half northeast of Middletown. So quickly was everything accomplished that the men who were implicated pot away with their booty before they could be overtaken, although the county author ities believe that if the right meu are not those under arrest they will have little dif ficulty in taking them. MONEY FOR DOWIE'S TRIP. About $2fl,OiM Contributed la a Mailt I"r Sew YorSi liiintlm. "Give something. (live as the Lord has lib you. Give cheerfully. Zion lias entered upon a campaign which will require all its strength and zeal and much money, its army of peace will Invade New York. It will stay nn J conquer the city for Zion. The siege cf the Imperial metropolis will cost thou sands of dollars. Every penny will help, and remember that every penny you give w ill lx for the glory of Zmi." Dr. John Alexander Lewie stood up on tho platform of the tabernacle at Zion City the other evening and ad dressed a congregation of hi followers that filled the great building to the door, says a Waukegau (111.) dispatch to the New York Herald. Fully O.iNH) people of Zion had gathered to make their "sacrifice of thanksgiving" for the New York campaign, A map of Greater New Vork twenty feet high and half aa broad was suspended be hind the pulpit To Dr. Howie's right fiat Elder Lee, "recorder of the host," and to his left Overseer Speieher. In the center of the stage stood n barrel covered with red, white and blue bunt ing to receive contributions. "I myself will contribute $."O0 to start the campaign fund," said Dr. Dowle. He drew a cheek for the amount from his pocket, held it aloft and then dropped it into the barrel, while the congregation clapped its hands and -thundered, "Amen;" Overseer Speioher announced that he had contributed $100 and had collected $225 more. El der Lee declared that more than $1,000 already bad been subscribed. Then under direction of Zion guards the congregation arose in section after section of the building and w hile Zlon's band in khaki in the gallery played marching tunes filed by the barrel and dropped lu their money. It was half past 9 o'clock when the contributions U-gau; it was nearly midnight when they ended. At the close Dr. Dowle nnnounced that the barrel was nearly half full of silver and paper money, and he tipped it ovfcr so that the congregation could see that he spoke the truth. The money was not counted, but it is thought to amount to nearly $20,000. Teaching Forestry In ladlnmt.
