The State Central Committee Begin Be- organlsing the Tarty. CniCAGO, Dee, 21. The Republican state central committee gathered here in open meeting, which was attended by the mem- Tiers of the committee and leading Repub licans from tlie city and state, Short ad dresses were made on the condition of the party in Illinois. In the afternoon the central committee niet in executive session, every district represented either in person or by proxy. Most of the afternoon was spent in discussion and elaboration of the reorganization of the party in the state. The plan adopted is similar to the one in Cook county. It is based on precinct or ganization, v.-liose presidents form the ward committee and the presidents of these in turn constitute the county execu tive committee. In like manner conirrcssional and Iecris- lative camiHiign committees are eonsti- by the respective presidents in those dis tricts. Chairman Clark, Secretary .Tamie son and .Tudgc Fullertoa were npiiointed a committee to superintend the work of or ganization. The rvsiguat ion of J. P. Wilson, of the Kinth district, who has removed from the state, was received and C. W. Raymond elected in his place. The reapportionment of congressional districts neeesNitated the reonjanization of the committee and this was left until the reorguuizution of the party in the districts. The question of test ing the constitutionality of the recent leg islative apportionment act was left to a committee consisting of Chairman Clark, Svrt'tary Jamieson, ex-Attorney General Hunt and Jnde Fuilerton. EXPLAINS A RAILWAY HORROR. Peculiar Answer of a Grand Trunk Train Illspatrber. MARSHALL, Mich., Dec 21. The cross-cxamiu.-jon of train Dispatcher Cornell was resumed at the trial of Conductor Scott and a profound sensation was caused by the witnessanswers. "Do you as a train dispatcher owe any duty to the travelling public?" asked Mr. Meacham for the defense- There was a long pause. "I suppose so," be said at hist. "What is it?" "To avoid accidents, I suppose." "Do you owe any duty to yonr com pany t" "Certainly. To keep trains mov- jng a rapidly as possible" "Now, sir, which of these duties do yon consider more important" "I reckon they are aliout equally important." ' Then you want to go on record as say ing that the saving of a minute or two of time to the comimny is just as important as saving scores of human lives? . Is thnt it?" Yes, sir." after a pause. "Then you wanted to nave a minute or ' two of time when yon hurried Conductor Scott out of Dattle Creek station on that fatal morning? That was it, was it?" "I suppo.; so.' GOODRICH A0MITS HIS CRIME. a' lie Mae Who lluteherrd Mrs. Crou Cor nered at Last. Chicago, Doc. 21. The man who mur dered Mrs. Cron has at Inst admitted his crime, and it is Charles Goodrich, who has been under arrest for some time. He wcj taken out to Wilmctte, where the crime was committed, mid took the officers over the route traversed by himself and com panions on the fatal night when Mrs. Cron was so foully murdered, Ixigan, one of the burglars, shot dead by Mr. Wheeler, Mrs. Cron's son-in-law, and the bouse destroyed to hide the crime. "When Goodrich was limught tmrk yes terday afternoon he told the entire story, said Inspector Shea. "He admitted that he drew the razor across Mrs. Cron's throat. According to Goodrich's story, he was landing over her bed, when she awoke in a fright and threw her arms about him, calling loudly for help. Then he slashed her across the neck and the blade os the razor caught in her bair. That accounts for the hairs found sticking to the blade. We will take his case before the grand Jury." aloha K McLean's tteneroslty. Cikcikkati, Dec 31. In addition to the donations which it has been the custom of John R.

Ex-Secretary Tracy Fails Agree With Gladstone. to RUSSIA AITD FBAHCE GOUTO AHEAD. Grand Old Xaa Give Saeae Facts That Will Do to Think Aeoat Eajrllsh Tessela Inferior Both la Owns aad Armor ad la a Few Tears She Will Be Behind ia Toaaase aad Number Gladstone Remark. Kew York, Dec 21. An Associated Press reporter called on General Benjamin F.Tracy, ex-secreta.-y of the navy, and read a cablegram from London in reference to what Gladstone said about him in reply to lord George Hamilton when the altter quoted Tracy as having said that England would require to be building nineteen battleships within the next two years in order to maintain her position. The Lon don Glolw's defense of Tracy against Mr. Gladstone's attack was also read to the general. While the reporter was reading the ex-secretary laughed heartily, and in repply to the reporter' query, he said: "Well, I don't see that the matter calls for nny comment on my part, Its I think the Globe has done that for me. iive the (.. O. M. Some Advice. "However, I will say that if Mr. Glad stone studies the condition of the French and Russian navies lie will learn if he is not already aware of it-4hat I am right in the statement which Ixinl George Hamil ton quoted. Two years from now France and Russia will have combined fifty mod ern battleships of 440,000 tons displace ment, against England's thirty-one of 814, WO tons displacement, Now, Mr. Glad stone can figure for himself if England's thirty-one are superior to the fifty 1 bave spoken of. I see Mr. Gladstone says that the material of the English navy is superior to that, of France and Russia, I differ with him, as I liclieve the French battle ships are superior to the English, both in guns and armor." GLADSTONE ON GEN. TRACY. The G. O. 51. Itnesn't Think Onr Ex-Xaval Secretary an Kxpert. Loxnov, Dec 21. Some surprise Is ex pressed at Gladstone's reference in the honse of commons during a debate on the efficiency of the Rritish navy, to General Tracy, ex-secretary of the United States navy. According to the full report of the deliate published Gladstone said: "I really do not know why Lord George Hamilton should quote Secretary Tracy, whose name is no more sacred in my eyes t ban any other name. What means that gent leman has of examining the case I do not know." Lord George Hamilton here interposed. saying: "General Tracy for four years was secretary of the United States navy." To this Gladstone replied: ."Then it seems to me t hat he corresponds a little with Lord George Hamilton, only not ouite so good. I do not suppose that General Tracy acquired such knowledge that the whole of parliament has to defer to the opinion he sent us across the Atlantic." The Globe protests against what it de serilies as Gladstone's "attack" upon Tracy, who, the Globe adds, has a very high reputation in naval matters. The Glolw then remarks that General Tracy's worn as secretary i the navy was a most distinct success and that Gladstone's sneer at him was nnprovoked and utterly un just ilied. THE CONVICT LABOR PROBLEM. Austin Corbln ft Co. Believe They Have a Solution. XewYokk, Dec 21. Austin Corbin & Co., wit hia a few days expect to hear from the state penitentiary commission of Ar kansas in regard to a pro osit ionthey have submitted to that body concerning the em ployment of convict labor of that state, a subject that has caused the authorities a great deal of trouble. Corbin & Co. believe their proposal will not only solve the problem of convict labor, but it will also result in a substantial income to the state treasury. Corbin s representatives explained that they had 4,0(10 acres of land under cultiva tion on an island in Chicot lake which comprised altogether about 12.0110 acres of splendid woodland and soil sufficiently fer tile for cotton purposes. The fact that this fann was on an island was pointed to as a reason that convict labor could be utilized there with a minimum number of guards and with the least possible inter ference with auy industries where free labor was employed. Kx press Company Lost Nothing. ST. Lm is, Dec 21. A special to The Re public from New Orleans says; The agents of Wells-Forgo express say that the ex press car in which Richardson was killed was not robbed and that the company did not loss a cent. Richardson had a gold watch on him at the time of the murder which the robbers did not disturb. The opinion of the express officials is that Rich ardson was either killed by some private enemy, a view of the matter they are now disposed to take, or that the robbers, after killing him, were interrupted in their rob bery by the train stopping at Dayton, which is an unusual thing. The latter view is the most favored and would indi cate that the murder occurred lust before .reaching Dayton. Taaaea Stanley a Widow. Another of the strange stories for which the English chancery court is re markable is astonishing everybody to day. The Widow Cullener bad a life interest fn her has bund's estate,, ter minating on ber remarriage. It is al leged that she married a certain James Stac ley in I8G5.
