Officers 3et the Drop on Western Des peradoes. HARTFORD, March 2. New York detectives, assisted by local police offi cers, have, captured two criminals who had started in to make dime novel rec- ; ords in Missouri. The capture was ef fected only after desperate resistance. William Rudolph, aged twenty-one, and a criminal In looks, had been in a number of exploits, when in 1898 he as sisted, it is said, in almost killing an aged couple near Stanton, Mo., with hot Irons because they said they had j no hidden wealth. Escaping then, he was heard of no more till Dec. 27, last year, when the Union bank at Union, Mo., was blown open and $10,000 In cash and $100,000 in bonds taken. - ' Detective G. J. Schumacher of a Chi cago agency was put on the case. First he located the home of the "Missouri Kid," as Rudolph was known, an old miner's house on the outskirts of Stan ton, Mo., where Rudolph's ( parents lived. Suspecting it might be a resort for thieves, he went there under guise of a hunter and stumbled upon his man, as he believed. Next day he re turned with Sheriff Burch and a depu ty, who had : a Warrant. They ap proached cautiously, but when within a rod of the door two men slipped but and began firing. Schumacher fell dead at the first shot and was tiddled with bullets,; while his companions took refuge back of the house. The battle continued some min utes, but the men escaped. ' ' Rudolph's parents, on being arrested, gaid their son had returned home at Christmas and had been joined by a young man called Lewis, a painter from S. Louis. The two alone had robbed the bank, they said. Search of, the house revealed as the only clew a scrap of paper bearing the name, I'George Colllns.-Hartford, Conn." " ; Superintendent George S. Dougherty of a New York detective agency com municated with the Hartford police, who finally learned that there was such a man, sometimes known as Lew is or Ladeaux, and that his stepfather and two brothers of the name of, La Plant lived here. Later it was learned that Collins had bought clothing in Waterbury arid had had It sent to the La Plants'. Detective Butler, provided with a description of the man, saw him on the street last week, whereupon de tectives came up from New York. It was decided that the two men must be taken together and on the street, as they surely would shoot to kill in a house. Their lodging place was found to be at 32 Allyn street ( - Yesterday morning the two j La Plants, Rudolph and Collins were .seen to leave there and go to a house in State street. A detachment of , police was put on guard while the detectives went to the door. Just then a hack came up, the door opened, and Collins and the two La Plants came out to en ter the hack. ! ' . -; . Detective Butler quickly collared Col lins, while the police took the other two. Collins fought hard before the handcuffs were put on him, but the chief prize was not yet secured. Detec tives Dougherty and Farrell made a rush , up the ' stairs. . . Rudolph was sit ting In the parlor, when a woman en tered, screaming, "The police are after you." But behind her was Dougherty,' and he had the drop on the bandit. : , . Rudolph's hand was on a .44 caliber revolver In his hip pocket. "Please re lieve him of that toy," said Dougherty to Farrell. "If he moves, he is a dead man." Y .; s""ty-;'" :,-'; ;.' j Quick as a cat the big detective was upon his man. Then ensued a tussle which lasted ten minutes and which destroyed all the furniture. Dougher ty's neck was badly bitten. Like Col lins, Rudolph kept up the fight till he was behind the bars. At the Allyn street house $8,685 in cash was found, together with three more revolvers and a burglar's kit. ' Non-ProductlT Poor. When the first public building was opened in the city ol New York for the care of needy and destitute per sons, the fear was expressed by the committee in charge that if they had no work to do "they might eat the bread of idleness." Accordingly, an appropriation was made , for se curing:, spinning wheels, knitting1 needles, flax, junk, wool and cotton. With these the inmates were, expect ed to make themselves self-supporting, but there is no record of a mu nicipal surplus from this source.

THE A, F Taylor Co. 43 CENTER STREET. f . " ' ' ' Over-Adams Express OQce, OUR LABOR TROUBLES Discussed , in ,. Several of the ' Local ,, Churches Yesterday. . - Incidental to his sermon at last mast yesterday the pastor of . St Thomas' church, Rev Father Crowley, referred to labor difficulties. He said that no ' matter how hard labor unions or other organizations may work for betterment of terrestrial conditions they would never be perfect here for It would serve a man nothing if In the struggle for humanity be lost his own chances of salvation. He hoped that all men of his church involved in the present strike here would remember their faith their manhood and their obliga tions as citizens and the Roman Catholic church was always the friend of the workingman. When,- some year3 ago. capital began Jto first organize for the purpose of suppressing the Knights of Labor, he said the man most prom inent On the side of th Inhnr tion at that time, the man who fought iur it was tug jcminence Cardinal Gibbons. He saw no reason why th working peonle should for the betterment of their conditions. we would also remind the working peo ple to be on their guard against politi cal soreheads and selfish leaders.: He wished it understood that he was mak ing no political reference to the local conditions, but he would asTt what has happened some of the great labor leaders that were once prominent in this country, where have they gone to. As soon as they saw their opportunity they went over to the side of the op pressor. He honed all ; labor men Jn future would take precautions against this. The selfish walking delegate was another great danger to the organized workingman. Sometimes these men made trouble instead of peace. It made little difference to them, said Father Crowley-whether or not the men wer working. he got his pav anywav. H took issue with Mr Gillette who saM at the mass meeting in the CItv'haTI last Wednesday evening that alLnon nnioh men In the days of the Civil war were copperheads, or called such. Father Crowley advised peace under all conditions and said turbulence anT disorder were the elements of the lawless. ... In his ermon on the strike yester day Dr Davenport said among other things: "One of the saddest things to my mind is the lesson in lawlessness given to the children and youth-of our cltv. Thev hnva not ho an cl rwTtr to absorb the spirit 6f the time " and to express It. Epithets , unbecoming' to ;. youthful Hps have by them been rreeiy used. Acts of violence have with them been common. Disrespect for authority has been ' learned, such as win not for a Ions time be un learned. It has been, and is. a terri ble trainlmg for those who are coming up to assume the places of influence nnrl " nnthnrlttr in fha vvmiruinltw Tf would seem that in a day much of the instructions of Sunday school and church and all the organizations and the individuals that ; have sought to inculcate self-control, respect for law, unselfish regard for others' welfare, have been .swept 'away." .

Some publicists are of the opinion that only the sternest language toward Turkey can prevent a war between Russia and Turkey in the spring. They believe that Turkey will pursue bands of Ma cedonian revolutionaries across the Bul garian frontier and that public opinion will compel Russia to interfere. The Russians thoroughly understand that a war with Turkey will be a morei severe one than that In 1878. Officer! are quoted as saying that the Turkish army is the best in the world owing to Its German organization and arma ment. , Tiiere is an mcunauon nere 10. anticipate German financial support of Turkey, and in view of the situation forebodings of a clash with Turkey are freely expressed in private, although they are carefully suppressed in th newspapers.
