iJ' Seven Colleapoes tn the Senate.
There are but seven of those who served
with Mr. Blnine in the senate remaining in
that body, where he served so honorably
and so well. They are Senators Allison,
Cockrell, Dawes, Gordon, Mitchell, Mor
rill and Ransom, four Republicans and
three Democrats. Mr. Hale, the junior
senator from Maine, who, perhaps, stands
nearer to Mr. Blaine than any other man
In Washington, was too greatly moved by
the personal sorrow that came to him to
express his views coneernin the life and
work of the great party leader. His re
marks in announcing to the senate the
death of Mr. Blaine were delivered with
much feeling and but partly expressed the
deep emotion that possessed him. The
others all eulogize! the dead statesman.

Fort Scott, Kas., Jan. 23. The little
town of Waverly, this state, on the Mis
souri Pacific and Santa Fe roads, was yes
terday afternoon the scene of a daring bank
robbery almost as destructive to life and
fully as sensational as the recent and last
raid of the notorious Dalton gang at the
town of Coffeyville, where the three Dalton
boys met the'r tragic death. At 3 o'clock
in the afternoon, just after the funds of the
bank had been securely locked in the time
safe of the Bank of Waverly, two men
bearing the countenances of the desperate
characters they proved to be entered the
bank and leveled their Winchesters on
Cashier Duvall, at the same time order
ing him to hand out every cent in the vault.
They Paralyzed the Cashier.
The cashier, almost senseless from the
sudden precipitation of such a predica
ment, informed them that the time lock
had just lieen set over the money, and
therefore he was helpless to comply with
their demand. They were, however, re
luctant to believe him and it was with
difficulty that he convinced them that what
he said was the truth. They then demand
ed the deposits which had been left after
the safe was closed, and the cashier gave
them tio, the entire amount available.
While they were in the bank a depositor en
tered with a large amount of cash in bis
hands, but a. the warning of the cashier he
Citizens to the Rescne.
The presence of the desperadoes thus be
came known to many outside the bank
and a posse of citizens armed with Win
chesters was immediately organized and
started for the bank. Meantime the rob
bers became alarmed and left the build
ing, fleeing down through an alley where
their horses had been left fresh and in
readiness for their escape. J. A. Engle
man, a laboring man who happened to be
passing the biuk as they left it, started in
pursuit and began firing on them with a
One Victim of the Outlaws.
Anticipating a fight the two outlaws
turned on him and fired, sending two balls
from their Winchestess through his body.
One penetrated his head and thi other his
right breast, instantly killing him. They
then mounted their horses and dashed out
of the alley into a remote street, and, takii.g
a westerly direction, left the town. The
posse, more keenly incensed by the atro
cious murder of their fellow townsman,
followed in hot pursuit. The ruiseral !e
sleety weath-r was a great impediment to
the rapid fliy'.it and the enraged citizens to
the number of twenty were in a few mo

The country for miles about was arousi-d

Waverly and placed in jail. It is quite
likely that they will lie moldied.
