The cities of the United States owe
$4OJ0J0(XJO more now than ten years
ago. Austin owes about five times
as much as it did ten years ago and
yet nothing has been done for many

The most substantial improvements
were made when the city was not

Poor's railroad manual gives an
interesting insight into the condition
of the various railways of the coun-
try by which it appears they are pro-

only in construction but in business.
At the closn of 1882 trains were run-
ning over 113329 miles of road.
During t'"at year 11591 miles of road
were constructed and put into work-
ing condition. Neither of these re-
sults include roads which were not
operated and in course of construc-
tion but were the roads open to pass-
age and freight traffic. There were
added to the capital funded and float-
ing indebtedness of all the railroads
during the year consisting of increase
of stocks bonds and other evidences
for building and equipping the roads
the sum of $780213768. The total
liabilities including capital stock
ljondcd and regular indebtedness was
$0895fX4359 about $60000 per mile.
The gross earnings were $i 0356716
and the net were 8310682887. This
exhibit shows an increase for 1882 of

ticket. What the result will be is
hard to tell but it looks like defeat
awaits the Democratic party of Ohio.
And the cause of all of it is that good
Democrats will not stand bossing.
Government chemical laboratories
exist in France for testing the quali
ties of food wine and -all articles of
consumption and use that are subject
to fraud and adulteration. The offl
cials of these government laborato
ries are not sinecures but are con
stantly employed in detecting adul
terations. Deleterious adulterations
of food and wine are destroyed. Other
adulterations that merely affect the
quality of the articles offered for . sale
and are not hurtful except as frauds
upon purchasers are confiscated and
sent to the hospitals. The laboratories
belong to the police force of the gov-
ernment and are designed to facilitate
the detection and punishment of
knaves. In this country we may have
protective laws of this nature on our
statute books but nobody is provided
to look after the adulterations. Hence
it is a country of adulterations and
the physical constitution of our
people is suffering in consequence.
An unp leasahtly long list of dis
graceful offences by army and navy
officers is given in a Washington dis
patch. The duplicating of pay ac
counts is the commonest form of
offending but drunkenness embez-
zlement and bigamy also appear in
the list. These cases await trial by
courts-martial which will be held
when the secretaries of war and the
navy return to Washington.Their trial
will afford an excellent opportunity
to make such crimes more rare among
officers and to free the service of the
stain these men have put upon it.
Every one of them who is proved to be
guilty should be punished to the full
extent of the law and no personal or
political influence should be allowed
to shield a single one from the just
consequences of his misdoing.
An analysis of a so-called proprie
tary medicine called ''bitters" showed
the presence of 82 per cent of whisky
and about 10 per cent of the essential
oils and flavoring extracts. In short
it was a fair specimen of the every-
day "cocktail" sold over the bar at re
tail for from 15 to 25 cents. The com
missioner of internal revenue has de-
cided that where bitters of this type
were sold "in good faith" as medicine
they would not be liable to pay an in-
ternal revenue tax. This opens the
door to a pretty extensive danger of
favoritism and at any rate it allows
too free play of the "personal equa-
tion" in deciding what is medicine and
what is whisky. It would seem to be
better to fix a certain standard of
liquor strength for the determination
of the taxable character of these bev-
The death of the Comte de Cham-
bord leaves the Comte de Paris as the
legitimate Bourbon Pretender. As
the grandson of Louis Philippe the
Comte de Paris represents the Orleans
family a younger branch of the Bour-
bons. In him are now centered the
hopes and aspirations of Legitimists
and Orleanists. A soldier a student
and a Frenchman to the core he is far
more dangerous as a Pretender than
the Comte df- Chambord ever was.
There is nothing however of the in-
triguer about him. He will remain
in privacy serving his country when-
ever it will accept his services until
the people demand of him that he be-

A Washington dispatch tells to
what protection has brought New
England cotton mills. The facts
which seem correct and are very
clearly stated show that in one New
Hampshire cotton mill at least
operatives are employed whose condi-
tion in no wise differs from that of
legal servitude. If .there ever was
anything in the idea that the wages
of workingmen are always high under
a protective tariff surely they ought
not to be the subject of complaint by
any New England cotton operative.
It is true however that under protec-
tion the condition of workers in East-
ern cotton mills has not improved
but on the contrary deteriorated in a
Of course the Republicans enter-
tain a bitter feeling towards Dorsey
and they will not hesitate to attack
him in any way that offers. There is
a statute in Indiana which provides
that any one who has been indirectly
or directly connected with the buying
of votes in that state shall on con-
viction be punished by imprisonment
in th? penitentiary not more than
five and not less than one year. The
statute also provides a fine. The judge
of the criminal court of Indianapolis
is now looking up the matter. He al-
ready has witnesses who will swear
that Dorsey gave them monev to bribe
voters and it is not improbable that
Dorsey will be indicted next month.
It may be that Dorsey will conclude
before he hears the last of this that
he was altogether too froe in his talk
for his own good.

an expression of popular sentiment on
the propriety and advisability of cele-
brating the occasion the celebration
to take place at Austin. The States-
man favors "a great industrial exhibit
that will attract a hundred thousand
strangers to the state" and says that
the nucleus already exists at Austin
in the Capital State Fair association.
It begins to look as though the
proposition of The Statesman is to

A WELL-KNOWN MARRIED MAN
AND WOMAN ELOPE.
Tho Abandoned Wife Likewise the
Deserted Husband Invoke Jus-
tice Tegener and the Ven-
geance of the Law Upon
the Guilty Couple.
There are few Germans in this city
who are not acquainted with Louis
Scheiffman and the present naughti-
ness of the man is a great surprise to
all though for some time the
tongue of gossip has been
wagging in regard to his attentions
to the young and beautiful Mrs. Anna
Hooffstetter. Mr. Hooffstetter is a crip-
ple and his wife has been the recipi-
ent of the attentions of the man with
whom she has eloped for some time.
Her husband on account of his feeble
condition could not watch her so
closely as it seems it was necessary
for him to do. He says he has noticed
for some time that Mr. Scheiffman
was particularly friendly with his
wife but he did not suspect
matters had gone so far as
they seem to have done. Mr. S. fre-
quently called at their home and some-
times Mr. Hoolstetter would come
home and fine Louis and his wife to-
gether. He remonstrated with his
wife about these attentions but she
assured him there was nothing but
neighborly friendship in his actions
toward her knowing that they were
poor and he a cripple. Whenever he
made her a present as he frequently
did she attributed it to this disin-
terested friendliness on his
part. Of course sometimes they
would meet at the beer garden and
a zwei-glass of beer was drank by the
two and as the husband was a cripple
the young and buxom wife found a
mend or tne tamuy in aouis wno
was very accommodating in aiding
her in a dance now and then or per-
haps in some other utile courtesy.
These were always paid with such
marked decorum on the part of Louis
when in the presence of her husband
that there was little for him to com-
plain of. He hardly suspected that a
man with a wife and t'amilv of his
own was negotiating with his wife
tor a lite oi crime; yet sucn it seems
was the case. Sunday they left the
city together and purchased tickets to

nothing further had been heard from

abouts are not known. If they went
to Palestine they evaded the city mar-
shal there but the chances are they
did not stop at that city at all but
went right on and ere this are no
doubt many miles from the absent
ones at home. Mrs. Hoofstetter took
her three children with her but Mr.
Schieffman kindly left his behind for
his deserted wife' to support thinking
no doubt that they would be a great
comfort to her in her loneliness.

Rev. W. E. Hall pastor of the Chris

First Christian church of St. Louis.
Mr. Hall has been in Austin for four
years and is greatly liked by his con-

to lose him. In St. Louis he will have
a wider field for his pulpit talents.
Outside of his church he has many

There have been many exciting

recent importation. Witnesses
were summoned and . an interpreter
called in. It was a good case against
Goldenberg for all the witnesses
swore they heard him curse the
woman. The wife of the defendant
dropped in during the progress of the
trial to encourage her husband by her
presence. Besides the witnesses there
was a large crowd attracted by the
novelty of the Russian Jews being in
court. Of a sudden Mrs. Goldenberg
fell over and fainted and went

Franklin August 28. A colored
woman named Susan Sutton was ad-
judged a lunatic by the county court
here in February last and ordered
confined in the lunatic asylum at
Austin. The county judge was in-
formed by the superintendent that
there was no room in the asylum for
her and four or five other lunatics the
county judge had on hand so these
lunatics were sent out in the county
and kept at heavy expense to the
county. Recently Susan was brought
in and turned over to the county
judge by those having her in charge
and no one will keep her longer at any
price. She is now confined in jail
which is crowded with prisoners
charged with crimes. She tears up
her clothes smashes dishes holloas
cries and sings continuously and is
not only agreat expense to the county
but a nuisance to the town. In re-
sponse to a second application the su-
perintendent of the asylum writes
Judge Crawford that he is crowded
and cannot receive any more colored
Eatients. A crazy white woman was
rouirht in and jailed to-day and it
seems they are to rot here in jail in-
definitely with no certainty of
ever getting them in the asy-
lum. If counties are required
to provide for lunatics it
should be known at once so they can
build county asylums. This county
now has six lunatics who were
ordered confined six months ago.

The President's Danger.
Hailey Idaho August 25. Con-
siderable excitement exists in this city
over a report which appeared in last
evening's Wood River Times that a
party of cowboys had started for Yel-
lowstone park to kidnap President
Arthur and Sheriff Furey has detailed
two trustworthy deputies to look the
matter up with instructions to sum
mon a strong posse and arrest the t
kidnappers it the tacts are as stated.
The Times says: "During the past
two weeks a number of strangers all
well provided with good riding ani-
mals and firearms resembling a party
of regul itors or Texas cowboys have
been camped on Willow Creek and
considerable curiosity has been ex-
pressed as to the intention of the par-
ty some accounting for their outfit as
a party organized to go up in the In-
dian country on a prospecting trip
while othera believe them to be a
band of Arizona rustlers. During
several days past some of the party
have ridden through town in a defiant
manner and mysteriously disappeared
From a man who came in to-
day it is learned the party who in-
duced him to join them made him
take a certain pledge of secrecy and
were organized to proceed to Yellow-
stone park. They left last night go-
ing on the stage road and
he escaped during the night.
The object of . the expedition
is to corral and capture the president
and party and to hide them away in
the mountain tastnesses and caves
tfhere they will be fed but kept pris-
oners while members of the party act
as pickets to prevent being surprised
and captured while negotiations for
ransom are being conducted. The
captain or leader of the party has an
idea that a heavy ransom will be of-
fered by the United States and per-
sonal friends of the president after
search for the president's party shall
be given up and that half a million
dollars or more can thus be ex-
torted from the secret service
fund and divided among the
party on the principle adopted
by Italian banditti. The escaped
member of the party says there are
sixty-five men in the outfit some of
whom were guerillas in the late war.
Wild Shoshone and Bannock Indians
go along as guides and scouts for the
party w ho are armed with repeating
rifles and scalping knives. The leader
is a Texas desperado on whose head a
price has been set and with the ex-
ception of two Italians who left a
railroad grade the others of the party
are cowboys. A grand council was
held night before last on the prairie
where every man swore by his dagger
in the firelight to do his duty.

FRANK JAMES TRIAL.
A Number of Witnesses Examined
' Reirardiu? the Killing of Wood
St. Louis August 28. The Post-
Dispatch's Gallatin special says the
Frank James trial was resumed this
morning. The defense asked permis-
sion to introduce specific act-) against
the witness (Mrs. Bolcon) with a view
to attacking their credibility. The in-
tention was to open up the murder of
Wood Hite ;t the Ford house for
which Little is now under indictment
and ef which Mis. Bolton and Capt.
Ford were witnesses.
The court decided that Mrs. Bolton
could te recalled and examined not
as to what she had told the neighbors
who called upon her on Sunday De-
cember 5 1881 and ate dinner while
the lifelessjbody of Hite was up stairs.
Mrs. Bolton testified that Hite was
killed in the dining room and he
refused to answer when the
body was taken up stairs. Extended
cross-examination failed to bring out
anything definite as to the killing or
burial of Hite's body by night in Old
Spring in - a pasture. She either
blurted out a refusal to answer or
else could not remember.
Capt. Ford was next called and ex-
amined as to the burial of Hite's body.
Ida Bolton aged fourteen a daugh-
ter of Mrs. Bolton was the next wit-
ness. She was present at the killing
of Wood Hite but witness was not
permitted to say who did it. She
narrated the details of the burial and
cleaning of the room. Her mother
did the latter. .This was in direct
contradiction to her mother's testi-
mony. Willie Bolton sixteen years old. was
the next witness for the state. He
positively identified Frank James as
the associate of Little. Jesse James
and the two Hites. Witness' descrip
tion ot the Dunai or ilite was graphic
and thrilling. Capt. Ford and Wilbur
Ford undressed the body where it had
lain on the floor all day" wrapped in a
horse blanket. They then took it out
and burled it in the pasture. On
cross-examination witness admitted
having said that although he did not
know Hall and Frank James to be
the same person he intended to swear
they were anyhow.
James T. Hughes and J. T. Ford
were recalled and gave unimportant
The Republican's . special gives
the following testimony in
the afternoon session of James
Mallory a farmer living eight
miles from Gallatin: On Thursday
before the Winston robbery he saw
Frank James at Potts' blacksmith
shop where he was having a horse
shod. There was another man with
James. Witness had a discussion
with James concerning the assassina-
tion of President Garfield. James told
witness he was living in Caldwell
James Potts the blacksmith who
shod the horse referred to by Mallory
testified: He lives six miles northeast
of Winston; he believed he had seen
defendant in his shop the latter part
of June 1881 and that he was there
again on the 18th or 19th of July; on
both occasions witness shod a horse
for defendant and another man whom
he recently recognized as Dick LittelL
He felt he had seen Frank James at the
Kansas City fair when the Goldsmith
Maid trotted at the Hamilton fair but
he was not certain.Witness was cross-
examined at much length as to the
identification of defendant but seemed
pretty certain on the point. On re-
direct examination witness stated that
when leaving his horse that Frank
James gave his name as B. Green
Cooper a cattle dealer of Ray county.
Subsequently witness recognized in a
livery stable at ijioerty the mare
which he had shod on the occasion of
Frank James first visit to his shoo.
An Excursion Steamer Blown Up
witn a Large rariy ADoara.
New York August 28. About ten
minutes to four this afternoon the
people who were in the neighborhood
of the foot of Fourteenth street and
North Rivtr were startled by the
sound of an explosion coming from
the direction of the river. Looking
out in midstream they saw the Hud-
son steamer Riverdale enveloped in
steam. In less than six minutes af
terwards she keeled to her side nd
capsized opposite Sixteenth street.hav-
ing floated down that far. Aboutfif-
teen different tugs from this city and
Hoboken hurried to where the vessel
lay. There was over 100 passengers
on board when she left the foot of
Harrison street for Haverstraw.
Some of these were hurled into the
air and then fell back into the water.
Others were compelled to jump into
the river to escape the hissing steam
that filled all tho parts of the vessel
or to avoid going down with her.
The cause of the disaster was the ex-
plosion of the iioiler which was amid-
ships. When the boiler burst the air
was filled with flying debris and
broken woodwork ; the pilot house
snapped like a pipestem and toppled
over into.the water. About fifty people
lost their lives some were blown into
eternity and others met their fate by
being drawn down with the whirlpool
caused by the sinking of the vessel.
Those who were floating or swimming
in the river were picked up by tugs
and row boats that came to the rescue.
Three dead liodies were also
brought in by the boats
Mrs. Sinnin of Tarrytown ; an
unknown man whose body was taken
to the morgue and a boy whose identity
has not been ascertained was also
taken to the morgue injured. How-
ard Gardner the evangelist of
Yonkers N. Y. and John Kelly deck
hand arms broken; John Moraudeck
hand legs and side crushed; Thomas
Lane passenger of Brooklyn scalded;
John Sailair mate left thigh badly
crushed; John Gifes of New York
badly scalded and in an extremely
critical condition; George A. Dimes
fireman of boat badly scalded. The
firemen of the several engines
and hook and ladder companies sta-
tioned nearest the scene of the disas-
ter were called out without their appa-
ratus and did good service as did also
members of steamboats and a squad of
policemen. Michael Kilean of the
Charles street station was the first
to help the wouned fireman George
A. Dimes on shore from the boat at
the foot of Twentieth street. "I never
saw a man in such suffering" said the
officer "and I hope I may never wit-
ness another such sight again. The
poor fellow squirmed and his flesh
was falling off in blisters. I called at
once on ambulance driver and had the
unfortunate man sent to St. Vincent's
hospital and then went in search of
other injured persons and when I
came to the foot of Fourth street I
saw a man pulling rapidly to the
wharf. His boat contained the body of
a woman whose legs were evidently
broken. She must have been crushed
by falling timbers while sitting on
deck and then thrown overboard.
OUR NATAL 11AZERS.
Names of the Cadets to be Court-
Martialed. Annapolis August 28. The
United States practice ships Dale and
Constellation have arrived at the
naval academy. The cadets on the
Dale were given leave to come ashore
and remain until 5 p. m. None from
the Constellation were landed. The
two ships are lying at anchor on the
Severn 400 yards from the academy.
The cadets will be given a month's
leave of absence except those charged
with hazing and the fourth class.
Five hundred aid five candidates
will present themselves at the acade-
my on Saturday for examination.
Members of the court-martial to try
the charges have not yet been named
nor the time fixed when it will con-
vene. This delay is owing to a scar-
city of officers at the academy. Those
served In practice ships will be given
a month's leave. A number are now
on leave others will be required for
the examination of candidates and
others whom it was expected would
be ordered to the academy have not
been so ordered.
It has leaked out here that the fol-
lowing cadets are those accused of
hazing on the Constellation: Kress
iloeiier and Campbell of New l ork; '
Tuggle. Breed and Tisdale. of Ken
tucky; Bullard of Pennsylvania;
Bird and Ilawkes.of Wisconsin; Win-
eram of Missouri; Dodd and Johnson
of Indiana; Young of Virginia; Trap-m-11.

What the Workingman Would Like
New York. August 28. The sen
ate sub-committee on labor and educa-!
tion resumed its session to-day. Wil
liam G. Moody of Brooklyn author of
"Land and Labor' was the first wit-
ness. He callt-d attention to the tact
that many foreign capitalists were
purchasing vast tracts of land in the
South and West. English lords and
French counts were domineering over
territory that was three times larger
than the kingdom of Great Britain
and by their system of wholesale
farming had driven the American
farmer from his homestead and into
the ranks of wage-workers. Rail-
road despots had more power
than the feudal raonarchs of Europe
and were in possession of 298000.000
acres an area larger than Austria
Italy and Switzerland combined.
Wage-workers were crowding the
cities and in New York City there
were 500000 people occupying a square
mile most of them small farmers not
able to secure a decent competency as
their farms were mortgaged and they
gradually lell into the hands oi great
capitalists. The only remedy for this
was the abolition of private property
in land. Prices of products greatly
enhanced by the continually growing
increase of middlemen who recruited
from the ranks of those who had no
regular occupation as they had been
driven from their business by the pre-
vailing system of labor. If the pres-
ent system was not abolished prices
would reach such a height that the
wage-laborer would be unable to even
secure the absolute necessities of life.
Witness contend the small farmer
could not cultivate his farm and profit
ably dispose of his produce ior the
reason that he was overridden by men
of greater capital who could supply
mechanical labor and had greater fa-
cilities for getting produce to market.
r ATAL DUEL.
Both Men Shot In the Mouth and
Vandalia111. August 28. A fatal
duel took place early this morning
near London City this county be-
tween Louis Phillips and "Jacob
Rosenbrook both residents of Bowl-
ing Green township. Rosenbrook
was killed instantly and Phillips
wounded so bad that he died in a few
hours. The trouble was of long stand-
ing. The affair grew out of disrespect-
ful remarks made by Phillips about
Rosenbrook's sister. Each time
they met they quarrelled and
yesterday morning they decided to
settle the matter in a duel with pis-
tols to be fought at 6 o'clock this
morning at a place mentioned. They
ohose their seconds Mack Swank and
Jack Wren.who were present and wit-
nessed the shooting. Rosenbrook
fired the .first shot the ball entering
Phillips' month. Phillips staggered
and before f alii e discharged his weap
on the ball taking effect at one side of
Rosenbrook's mouth ranging upward
through his head. Both duelists were
young men Phillips being about
twenty-two years of age and a school
teacher. Neither of the seconds has
been arrested as yet.
AN IMPORTANT QUESTION.
Railway Fools Useless It a Shipper
Desires a Certain Route.
Chicago August 27. It is given
out here on good authority that the
Southwestern railway association will
not contest the suit of the Boston
sugar refinery instituted to tesj: the
question whether people can divert
freight from a road to which it is sev-
erally consigned by shippers. A
Boston company tendered certain
freight to a Rock Island road
but the commissioners of the pool
said the freight would have to go
over another line in carrying process
thus evening up the business of all
pool roads. Under pressure of the
suit the Boston company has been
allowed to have its way without dis-
pute and freight has gone over the
road indicated. This is accepted as a
confession that the pool managers
realize they have no standing in the
suit in question namely that the
railway as a common carrier is bound
to arcept all freight tendered in spite
of any pool regulation.
A LUNATIC'S WORK.
A German shoots Two Men Killing
One Then Kills Himself.
Indianapolis August 28. Jacob
Oldenberger jand Jacob Busch had a
law suit this morning in a j ustice court
which was decided in the latter's fa-
vor. Meeting Busch on the street
about one o'clock Oldenberger drew a
pistol and fired killing Busch instant-
ly. Turning from Busch he shot Sam
CampbelLwho was passing at the time
probably fatally. He then crossed the
street and putting the pistol to his
own head shot himself dead. It is
probable the shooting of Campbell was
accidental as he was in no way con-
nected with the suit.

Bab Harbor. M. August 28. An
extensive forest fire is now raging
between Seal Cave and Great Pond ten

succeeded in surrounding the burning
district with a ditch thus preventing
further damage. The fire is now be-
lieved to be under control.

First sales. 813.939.72; second sales
