If it is true, as is charted, that a large
number of women yottd illegally at the
recent municipal election fn Boston by
casting the straight city ticket instead of
voting only for membera of tbe school

The Philadelphia Time very properly
Vhifcks that the enod people who want

passing resolutions or flooding the
twii houses of coniires with petitions on
tbe subject. That document, it Pays, ex

Berviuii the Sabbath is one of the things
that is conspicuously omitted from the
list. Al! legislation upon this subject
properly belong to the state lejjisl-nures.
Most of the states have iaw-4 forbidding
the performance of unnecessary work on
the Sabbath, and this seems to be about
as far as the law making power can go.
Thope who want the Sabbaih more re
ligiously observed than it is at present
should labor to convince the people to
observe it as a rvlisjious duly . If they
can succeed in this no more laws will be
necessary, and without this strict laws
will fail of enforcement.

It is boldly asserted by a traveling man
whose reputation for truth and veracity
has never been assailed, that an Ottawa
newspaper man recently bought $1,200
worth of diamonds. Such an act as this
is scarcely characteristic of newspaper
men. Not that the lavish expenditure of
money is at all out of the common, but it
is generally sent into other channels. It
Roes for coal, rent and baby clothes. It
goes for charity. Alas! it sometimes
goes for beer. But who is this wanton
Bohemian who squanders this amount?

We have heard of oeeasirns when this
Ottawa newspaper man clun fondly and
with much confidence to a lamp post at
midnight, apparently afraid to venture
beyond the circle of Ii;!it in account of
footpads. Howevi-r the individual is of
minor importance. The ilz7.'ing truth
goes out to the world ih tt an Illinois
journalist can buy dUnnmiis. This hut
adds lustre to a crown ot c'ory encircling
the proud brow of I!iir.i i-Mimalism.

Senator Erwin, of New York, recent
ly visited Gen. Harrison to boom Tom
Piatt for a cabins position. ErTin re
ports Harrison as saying: 'I couldn't
help noticing, when, day after di.y, the
giest crowds of people called to see me,
how disturbed they were with the f.ar
tbtit the free trade movent nt would irr.s
poverish them. I have pfn men s'acd
before me with tear in their eyes, as if
th? were imploring me to save them
from rree trade and to maintain the Amer
ican system of protection to American
homes and indus'ries. The people were
in earnest against democratic free trade,
and to that I ascribe our victory." This
is very paibe'ic, indeed, says the Indian
apoliB iy-ntind, end no doubt Erwin was
very much moved by Ge-n. Harrison's
recital. The great crowds that stood be
fore Harrison during the campaign, with
tears in their eves, imploring him to save
them from a reduction of tuxs on their
salt and au.'ar, am! clothing, and lumber,
must have been very thrilling spectacles,
indeed, and the wonder is luta IKniaon
lived through it all.

About fifty members, embraon; many of

the session closed.
Ir. Poole said the desideratum of our time

the principles taught in the historical depart
ment of Johns Hopkins university, aucn a
history would recognise the fact that a large
and important portion of our common coun
try lies west of the Allegheny mountains.

His Vlrtlms Girls from 10 to IS Years of
Aee and Their Number About Forty
Twelve Years of Crime Cnearthed at
lHt The Scoundrel, Arrested and
Balled, Jnmps His Bond.
Escanaba, Mich., Dec it7. This town is
excited over a very sensational scandal. It
is charged that Dr. W. W. Mutlikeu has
been guilty of the horrible practice of lur
ing little girls to his office and assaulting
them. Twelve years ago Dr. Mulhken lo
cated here as a practicing physician. There
has been much talk about him for two years,
but it did not toke form until Thursday of
last week, when, as the result ot investiga
tion, be was arrested and placed under $1,000
bail. He forfeited bis bail and ran away.
Children were questioned before concealed
witnesses, and the horrifying facts were de
veloped that many little girls have been
ruined by bim at bis office. There seems to
be no limit to bis immoral conduct. It is
claimed that over forty girls, ri nging from
10 to 15 years of age, are his victims. Tfleir
names are withheld.
For more than a doten years, it is alleged,
this villain has practiced these criminal acta.
He bus by gifts, promises of money, and
other means induced little girls to visit his
offl -e, when be baa taken the basest advan
tage of them. How he succeeded in keep
ing his brutality from being known for so
vng a time is hard to undersianl. Iu the
stones toid by his victims promises of future
rewards, threats, aud every otbr means
were used by bim to close tbe hps of the
girls whom be lured to their ruin.
It is said that at times bis victims were
given aiirtHtbetics and their persons then vio
lated. In individual Instances he has been
discovered, and at several different times be
has been called to account by the parents of
c nldren whom he bad ruined, but uo public
exposure, of his villainy was ever before
made. Last February a clew to his practices
was obtained through a quarrel between two
little girls who were attend in? school, aud
the feet was mmie known that the horrible
vices practiced in the doctor' ofiKw were un
derstood by tbe children One ot these little
giris a'-ciLseil tiie other of being so wicked as
to visit Dr. Mulliken's office and to stay there
for hours. In June one of tbe doctors vic

iignities she suffered in the doctor's office,
whither she bad been coaxed by promises of
a reward. In neither of these cases could
suillcient corroborative evidence t secured
to warrant proceedings against tbe doctor.
Evidence nasobta.'ned against the brute by
accident. On tbe morning after Thanksgiv

found on the fences, giviug the names of

THE SHAW-PLESNER SINUOSITY.
Indtetfd for Hurglary and Keewlvlnjr Stolen
l'roperty Thoe Associations.
Chicago. Dec. 27 Tbe grand jury yes
terday found two true bills of burglary and
two of receiving stolfo property, knowing
the same to have been stolen, against each of
the following persons: VV. F. Shaw, Hnrv
P:e-wner, C. 1. Taylor, and Otis Corbet t.
The latter Shaw's father-in-law.
Sbaw sas, and Flesner corroborates him
after a fashion, that he receive1 the bonds
from Taylor, who professed to have taken
them from a friend who was distressed tiisau
cinlly. He also asa-rts that he did not at
tempt to negotiate for tneir return to the
mtn who owned them until be bame satis
fird that Taylor's mysterious friend did
not intend to redeem them. Tiien he
took the bonds to T. H. Tollman, the
banker, to got his views relative to
their value in tbe market. Tolman told him
that it would be unsafe ?o handle them, but
show nevertheless tore off a lut of coup ins and
snt thm to hisTather-indaw, Ot;s C rietf,
in Rock Island, by Pie'-sner, with instruc
tions to place them on ttie market a"spee'lily
a possible. C'orbett followed hi wn-in-la'R
instructions, and not only proved that
thi bomlsi uuiife, but pot tVunJwlf (-
a disagreeable mess. After tbe failure to
dispose of lie coupons Shaw says Taylor
opened the secret negotiations with Mr. Kei-
1'jg? which led to AlvtM- m Caancory Lut
ting becoming involved in the troub'e.
Ine Columbia Building and atvtugs asso
ciation and the Commercial Mutual Accident
association, which Shaw and Piessuer respec
tively managed, appear to have been two
famously rotten affairs. Ab-tut the only
unquestioned assets which the i,200 members
of tne C' lumbia Building and Savings asso
ciation have for the $o!,000 paid in are
$'5I.H-S df posited with the a.- K'lation'n bank.
Byond the deposit mentioned there are sev
eral thousand dollars' worth of hy pot he-
cared mortgages and bonds, ahou- $11,000
wnrth of expenses, a clear-cut defalcation of
tfi.00-1, and then there is Sbaw and Plessner
and Taylor and Corbet t .
4 esterday afternoon the Columbia Build
ing and Savinirs association went into the
hands of a receiver. At least the petition was
file 1, and uudr the circurnstauc-w there is
no question that it will be granted. John S.
Mwkly, it is probable, will baint rusted wittt
straightening ont a very bad concern. The
petition for a receiver was fl ed bv John N.
Eddy, of Watikon, la., president of the asso
ciation, and E. F. Shaffer and C. A. Leigh,
directors. These three men, with Attorney
J. S. Huey, spent two days in looking over
the boolcH, and state in then petition that tbe
thing is hopebIy insolvent.
Hnw much the menders of 'jbe Ruilding and

The body is that of a German or Italian
from 2 to 35 years old, 5 feet tt inches in
height, and weighing 1(15 pounds; head, big
and round shaped; bair, very black; mus
tache, thin and stubby and same color; eyes,

across the chin. The left teg had evi lently
been cut with a knife down to the bone,
which had been sawed oompletply through.
The right leg hid been cut with a knife and
