MORE ABOUT CRONIN.
CniCAGO, Iov. 8. Dr. Cromn's cloth -ins
and case of surgical irstrumeiits were
found this afternoon aud fully identified,
.nrl Hi.- Hir-iivprr lms r.reated the Erreatest
excitement among the officers of thestate.
clnihea and case of instruments were
found in a catch basin in L'ike View, by
Lieutenant Roche of the Lake View s!a
tion, not a huudred feet from wliere nr.
Cronin's body was thrown. It was after
wards learned that they were discovered
at tome little distance from the spot
where the body of the murdered man was
fouud, but in close proximity to the place
where the bloody trunk was discovered
They were covered with slime, but the in
struments were easily recognized as be
longing to a physician's outfit Lieuten
ant I toe he, as soon us he made the discor
cry, at once started for the police head
quarters. Chief Hubbard eaid that the
clothes nud instruments were undoubted
ly Df. Cronin's.
Complaints have been made recently
that the sewer at the intersection of Evan
ston and Guena avenues was running over,
and to-day workman were sent to investi
gate the trouble. The cover was re
moved from tne manhole id the center ol
the street, and. after a lew minutes work
wrth poles and hooks, two vulises wer
brought up, one a leather one and th
other a cheap paper one. In the leather
valise was found Dr. Cronin's prescription
book, with several prescriptions bearing
his signature. The paper one drooped to
pieces as it was pulled out, and from l
rolled a mass of tattered clothing, most
of which bad been cut in strips. The
only garment remaining intact was the
vest, which was in the center aud which
encircled the doctor a case of surgical in
struments. The clothes had evidently
been cut, in the hope that they would
sooner diop apart and be borne away iD
the sewer. The clothing, suigical case
and prescription book, the latter two be-
ng marked with Cronin s name, were
lully identified by the Conklins and
others as the property of the murdered
physician. The most damaging of all the
circumstances for Ihe prisoners is the tact
that the find was made only one block
from the spot where the bloody trunk
was discovered after it had been thrown
hurrkdly from the wagon, and only half
mile south of where the oiidy was touna
i a catch basin. The paper valise i:
up posed to be the one purchased by ''J
B. Siuionds," and to morrow a clerk will
endeavor to identify it.
A tragic event which occurred immedi
ately in front of the courthouse, while
everybody was examining these articles,
caused wild excitement. A shot was
heard just at the entrance of Judge Me
Connell's court. Adozen lawyers and re'
porters rushed out and found stretched on
the sidewalk, the body of a large man,
with a revolver in his hand and the
brains oozing from Lis skull. He was
dead, and, as no one could identify him,
it was at o ce presumed that his tragic
death bad some mysterious connection
with the sensational discoveries of to-day
After an hour's investigation, however, it
was learned that bis name wes Edward
Kenm and that he bad been tor some
time known to be partially insane. He
doubtless committed suicide while labor
ing under a mental aberration.

Morgan, said to be an important witness

was sandbagged to-night by an nnKown

an alley, when some one, wrapped in a

blunt instrument. She fell, but after her
assailant left managed to drag herself
into the house, where she fainted. She
has since been in a serious condition.

A SHOCKING TRAGEDY.
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 8. Colonel
William Cassius Goodloe, a member of
the national republican committee, and
collector of the seventh internal revenue
dislrict, stabbed and killed Colonel A. M.
Swope, a prominent republican, at Lex
ington this afternoon. Goodloe was shot
and fatally wounded. The -men met in
the postoffice corridor, and when each
saw who the other was they glared at
each other fiercely. Then some angry
woids followed, when nut h suddunl7
drew their weapons, Swope a pistol and
Goodloe a clasp knile. As soon as the
weapons were drawn Swope tired, and
Goodloe knocked the pistol down as it
went off, the ball entering his abdomen
on the right side. Goodloe then began
stabbiug bis opponent in the breast with
a knife. The cause of the difficulty was
a statement made m the republican con
vention May 1. 1880, by Goodloe thai
fully two-thirds of the Fayette county
delegation in the convention did not
speak to Swope.
ColoLel Goodloe had been for years a

minister to IJe'gium under Hayes, and is
a member ot the national republican
committee, being chairman of the com

THE TELLTALE CAKPET.
Chicago, Nov. 10. This afternoon,
Captain Schuettler cleaned the piece of
muddy carpet found in the Lake View
sewer Saturday afternoon, and found it
was exactly similar to the carpet pur
chased by "J. B. Simonds" at the same
time with the furniture for the Carlson
cottage. Being found in the same sewer
with Cronin's clothes serves to locate Dr.
Cronin m the Carlson cottage, whence
the carpet came and where Martin Burke
was residing at the time of the murder.
STEAMER BURNED.
Port Townsend, Nov. 10. The pas
senger J. B. Libby, from Whatcom via

THE JOSEPHINE HARTER CASE.
Tacoma, Nov. 10. The death ot Miss
Josephine Harter continues to be the sub
ject of absorbing c6nversation. The fact
has transpired tnat testimony was given
at the coroner's inquest implicating
well known physician of this city. He is
away at the present time on professional
business, as stated by members of his
family.
To-day, Charles Hoyt, an employe of
the .Northern Jt'acihc, was supenaed to
testify at the inquest, which will be con
tinued on luesday next, and, as bis evi
dence and detention are ot paramount
importantunce, a bond of $2000, with
three sureties, was given for his appear
ance, iiovt is the man wno, the deceaseo
stated, would be her future husband, and
who attended her throughout her fatal
illness. He is supposed to be the author
of ber trouble, aud perhaps accessory to

A CREW IN IRONS.
SSPoitT Townsend, Wash., Nov. 10 The
bark C. D. Bryant arrived from Honola
lu to-day and the crew were placed in
irons. .Members of the Coast beaman's
Union attempted to steal the crew, when
a revenue cutter sent a armed boat aboard
and took charge.
THE RAILROAD MEN DID IT.
St. Paul, Nov. 10. Commenting on the
result of the recent election in Iowa, a
local railroad publication declares it was
largely due to tbeiailroad employes' vote,
Let there be no mistakes," it adds; cor
porations were cot in the hght. Railroad
employes of the state of Iowa would con
trol, if united, not less than 50,000 votes.
They are not yet united, but they are
sufficiently so to turn 17,000 or 20,000 votes
and to swing the state election. The
power which' has been put forward in
Iowa has exerted itself so silently and
with so little movement that no one, not
in the secret has known ot its existence.
Hallway employes have awakened to a
knowledge of their own strength. Tbey
have learned that their cause is not the
granger cause, and that tbey have noth
ing to gain and everything to lose by the
po icy ot oppression of companies from
whom they get their work, their salaries
and their bread and butler. Republican
ism and Democracy, in the abstract, have
no interest for tiiem. They are not swayed
by party motives, and are no more under
the leadership of party bosses than of
corporations; but whatever the party may
be or whoever the man may be that strikes
at their very means of living, that party
or that man will feel the weight of their
enmity at the polls. The great counter
balance, long needed, to the granger vote
has been found. It is the vote of organ
ized railroad men."
SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
Albany, Nov. 11. Frank Watson,
while cutting ties on the Oregon Pacific
railroad near Gatcsville to-day, cut his

fore made on the Chicago & Northwest

THE CRONIN TRIAL.
Chicago, Nov. II. In the Cronin case
this morning, witnesses were introduced

nessses testified to acts showing the inti
macy between Kunze and Cougbiin, and
Kur,ze and O'Sullivan.
Gus Kare, a tinner, testified to having
soldered up a galvanized iron box, 14x26
inches, for Burke two days after the mur
der. Burke objected to witness reniov
ing the cord from the box which held the
top on. In the course ot a conversation
Burke said that Cronin was a spy and.
ought to be killed.
Joseph O. Bryue, senior guardian of a
Cronin camp of she Clan-na-Gael, told I
about a conversation that he had with
Bi-ggo and others two or three days after
Cronin's disappearance. Beggs expressed

THE CINCINNATI SUNDAY LAW.
Cincinnati, Nov. 11. Three theater
managers, together with one opera com
pany, one gaiety company and one dra
matic company, were before the police
court to-day, charged with a violation of
the law by giving Sunday performances
yesterday. The managers were fined $15
each, and all of tbe performers were sen
tenced to pay the costs ot tbe prosecution.
In the case of one theater this is tbe sec
ond offense. The judge gave them notice
that another violation of the law would
subject all parties concerned to arrest at
any time during the performance, and to
such additional fine within tbe law as
might seem best to the court.
COA-UMBUS AMI I8ABAU..
A Great Woman's Share Id the ttlory
of America's Discovery.
N. O. Picayune.
Between Genoa and Nice, in that in
comparably lovely curve of olive and
palm-crowned land known as the Riviera,
that bends witb infinite beauty into the
sea, there stands in the dingy, somewhat
bedraggled street a stone and siuccoed
house, now a shop frequeLted by tbe
simple peasant folk. The town is Cogo-
leto, and this bouse is its one show place
or treasure, for on the mildewed, siflron
wall an inscription states that Christo
pher Columbus was born there.
It is not of much moment whether be
was born in this small town or in
the grand city ot palaces, then not so
grand, however, fifteen miles away. Tbe
nterest and beauty of Columbus life are
fadeless.
Fired with scientific zeal and the ad
venturesome spirit of the real navigator,
one sees bim as be was, across the cen
turies, crowding into tbe court of a king,
waiting with bis charts in ante-rooms for
audiences, repelled, cheated, put aside,
penniless but patient, rich in the hero
stuff, poshing on and certain under his
uncertainty that some day tbe sun would
shine for him and his plans.
When we understand a philosophic
thrill to an epic it is because tbe same
fine qualities that wrought them are in
some shape in ourselves. It takes a dia
mond to cut a diamond. Being cnt and
exquisitely fashioned, the commonest
mind may admire. A poor, feeble nature
cannot baye much influence forgood. A
little nature never inspires us. Many a
man and many a women die dumb and
inglorious because there was no diamond
like influence to illuminate his or ber own
nature, no chiseling force to sculpture
out all the possible facts, fiee the im
bedded crystal and give it the divesting
power that should show it off in all its
many-sided beauty.
Christopher Columbus would not be
tbe pedestaled great man, imperishably
great, that be is to day, had it not been
for tbe large-brained comprehension, the
sympathy, the intuition and the faith in
him of a women, it took a woman to
discover the man who was to discover a
new world, .There are gome who may say
that what a woman does not discover is
not worth knowing, and women like that
fine, enterprising, brave-natured Isabella
of Spain, who was liehind the door of the
great lame of Columbus, prove this true
in so noble a sense that at ber name every
fez and turban, evory stovepipe hat should
be removed in honor of ber.
Great men have almost always been
backed up in their most notable and ad
venturesome enterprises by some great
woman. Every Columbus has bad bis
Isabella. Mea might jeer and deride,
might suspect and ridicule, but she was
rocklike in her belief: ber intuition marked
out unerringly, tbe path his genius would
take; her heart and her hope shot ahead
of him like a star lighting the night of
his sky. : . -

in fact Jackson and Douglas have suffered
equally as much from tbe past dry season as
nas urook. Mr. Alien met one man who
was coming over here to buy cattle, expect
ing to get them tor 91 a head. The past
season was a severe one for the residents of

will suffer for want of plenty to eat, or to
make any ready to sell cattle for less than
they are worth. If some of those Southern
Oregon folks were to see the green grass
now on the hills of Crook county, they
would be envious, and would not lielieve
there ever had been a drouth over here.

"Aluxauao. McTavish was not the first
white man that died in Oregon. Two years

from Kentucky, died at Astoria. Thi waa
when Astoria was the heailnnartara ni tha

years before the MoTavishes saw Oregon.
It wa John G. MoTavish who, as factor of
the northwest fur company, and not the
Hudson Bay company, that sometime in
1813 purchased of McDougal, Astor's resi

song. It was this perfidious act of treach

Astor's plan to occupy Oregon by an Amer

American from all Oregon and the north

For they'll kick when you're sober and
in for work and they'll kick wben vou

ments in real estate; they'll bucket
booming tbe town and everrthinir that'll
work for good, some kicker will frown
and frown I If thi thine or that thine ia
thought to be good--some other they'll
say will be better and if one could write
them np as a "mas" -they'd knock off
(bat superfluous letterl When these aelf-
same kicker arrive at tbe cates tha
pearly gate of heaven thev'll kick if
offered a nice small crown and pick out ft
nuoiuer .even i un earth, in heaven, at
home, on the street, there are men who
are bound to kick until we declare
there's do peace anywhere 'ti enoqgh
to make a man sick. So out on those
kickers, those cronic old kicker that
blight that is thrust on a town and when.
they kick with tbelr mulish way, for
heaven's sake frown tbem down.
