St. tacts, Jan. 13.-.Samul Welsor. the
murderer of Clementine Manning, spent
his lart night In eating ojrsters and drink
ing ueer ana talking with tbetwodepnty
sheriffs who const it nted the death watch.
He was escorted to the scaffold at 8 o'clock
In the morning- When axked if be had
anything to asy, he dimply replied without
iremor: "uo ahead." The dron fell at
'ffl. HLs neck wes broken. In twelve
minutes the body was cut down and pre-
parea i or ennui.
The crime for which Welsor was hanral
was the murder of Clementine Manning at
her room, corner of Walnut and Tenth
streets. He had lived with the woman tor
number of year, but left her. iroiiurto
f u imu. ijearninethrouicb a newsnaner
uem inai une nan won a prize of fl.MW in a
hrttery he came twek and demanded that
he lie reinstated in her affections. As
on earnest of her recard for him be de
manded ihe.t the major portion of her prize
ne used to start turn in the mloon business.
His propositions were rvfuxed. Sliding
her sister, who was in the room, for a
pitcher of beer Welsor, as soon an the sister
was gone, shot Clement ine to death.
un trial the defense of insanity was put
nn. The principal evidence of mental
weakness was the fact that Welsor carried
in his pocket the shrivelled and mumilied
nnger or a ue ai ncro wit a which it was
his practice to stir the frequent glasses cf
whisky winch he drank.
Heir. te Appeal te the Knpn
a. Court for
the lnpertjr.
1.AKCASTF.R, Ta., Jan. 13. Judge Iir
ingstone ha handed down an opinion on
the exception to the auditors' report in the
estate of Thaddcus Stevens. The excep
tions will be dismissed nnd the report con
firmed absolutely. Thnddeus Stevens died
in leaving as the bulk of bis estate
bis furnace property and several thousand
acres of ninunt.-tin land. His executors
were unable to dispose of bis property for
several years, hut it was liually sohk The
money realized was iuvested in securities
aud in time their value reached fcVUKiO.
Cnder Mr. Stevens will, if his estate
reached that sum, it was to be applied to
the founding of a home for Ikivs of all
creeds and oa:iualiiics where all were to
be treated alike. When the fund was
ready for distribution the relatives of
Thaddcus Stevens, nephews and grand-
rtcphc ws, put in a claim for the estate.
Their counsel took the position that, the
fund not having rem bed ?i0.Muex:eiil by
accumulation of interest they were en
titled to it. The auditors in their report
overruled the r Is ims of the heirs and d
ciiletl tli.it the fund shoul 1 lie for the sum
provided in the will. The heirs will ap-
Jieal to the supmue court.
firiirlals Us Hplleve the Mm Were
ftlvaam aud MorrrlU
Flzlxo, C'al., Jan. 13. Tlie sherilTs of-
fice gives no credence to the stipiioMtiun
that Chris Kvans and Morrell committed
the robbery nt Fowler. Kvaus is lielieveil
to be still in the mountains. One of the
sheriff's men returned from the foothills
with a letter found iu a rancher's bouse.
Kvans broke into the building during
the rancher's ulisenre and exchanged his
own rifle for a tidbit rone and took the
rancher's lield glass. He li ft a note sayiug
bis own rifle was too heavy for his band
and that be would twiv for the rifle and
glass at the first opportunity. There is no
doubt about Kviibs' handwriting. The
sheriff's men are mystilied, however,
aliout the raid at Fowler.
Removed for Safekeeping.
IAIt- All, Ky., Jan. 13. Jace Brown,
the Ilanhvell train roblx-r who turned
state's evidenee against William O'Brien
and Joseph Itns-kenridge was brought to
this city nnd lodged in jail for safekeeping.
It was teansl t hat (J Inen and Urecken-
ridge would kill him if permitted to re
main in the ivklule Jail, as they hau
made such threats. His confession uot
only makes out a clear rase against them
in the Illinois Central railroad robbery at
Hani well, but also in the Lakcton robbery
on the Mobil3 and Ohio railroad a few
miles from li:;rdwell a year previous.
Tlie llnud Scheme.
WAstHXGTox. Jan. 13. Republican"
meniia-rs of the senate committee on

diate action on the profiosition for issuing
ImiikIs which was submitted to the finance
committee. Mr. Carlisle told the commit
tee to exercise theirdiscretion, but he fixed
the interest limit at 3 percent. The de
nomination of tlie bonds he left in blank to
lie tilled in by the rotumutcc. Some of the
Democratic members of the unauce com
mittee do not relish the bond scheme and
there Is sure to be a sharp contest before it
is agreed to.
Tourhrd the MaglstraU''. Heart.
SocniAJirTuS, Jan. 13. Five stowaways
who were found concealed on lioard the
American line steamship Jew lork
shortly after she left the United States on
her last iNissage to this port were brought
up before a local magistrate here and were
sentenced to pay small flues. The stowa
ways touched the heart ol t he magistral
by drawing a pitiful picture of tlie New
York labor market, saying things were
never worse in that city than they are now
and they would rather get back to Eng
land at any cost than starve in America.

An Expedition. That TrnpoM to Dig Tp

St. Ij'.'IS. Jau. 13. A peculiar story has
developed here from the fitting out of
what was supixwed to be a buntiug expe
dition, but which is now known to be for
the pnriKj.sc of searching for gold alleged
to have been bidden near this city, having
been brought up tlie river during the war.
Nearly two years ago a similar expedition
was titled out here by Dr. A. tt . r innev.
but as he never told the result its failure
was presumed.
He now stales that on the previous trip
he secured t'.'-OO in gold bullion, but got
no trace of anymore. This time be be
lieves be has Ix-tter informal ion and holies
to tiud the main treasure, estimated at
T-tl.tsastsm in value. His information, he
says, comes from a confession of a dying
man. The treasure is supposed to be
