The Horrible W rattan Butchary.
Washington, Ind., Dot, 25.—James
Stone, who but a day or two since con-
fessed a share in the horrible Wrattan
butchery of September 19th in whloh
six persons were horribly butchered
and who implicated Lou Williams,
Martin Yarborough, Gibb Clark. Wm.
Kays and John White broke down
completely this morning and confessed
that he alone committed the horrible
orime, alone and unaided lie used a
corn knife and a ohllds hatohet. Stone
told the otlioers where to find the
weapon with which the deed was done.
The officers went out this morning
before daylight and found them where
Stone had stated. A small bloody axe
and a corn knife were hidden under a
log in a piece of woods close by the
scene of the tragedy. The weapons
are now in possession of the grand
jury. It is the opinion that Stone
may or may not be telling the truth.
He has the reputation of being a
notorious liar. It 1b not believed that
he did the deed alone.
Washington, Oct. 25—The story of
the way the Democratic silver sena-
tors came to give up the tight so sud-
denly is told by a member of the house
w ho went over to inquire about it just
after the collapse came.
The men who were so earnest for the
light Sunday night met with their
Democratic colleagues Monday morn-
ing and announced their intention of
assisting the silver men with the tight
as promised. It is here that the per-
suasions of the repealers were used
with such good effect.
Senator Gorman did not take so
much part in the advice that was given,
but his ideas were expressed by men
like Vest, Cockrell, Faulkner and
others. They urged upon Senators
Harris and Pugh, who were reputed
leaders of the Democratic party fight-
ing for silver, that up to the present
time Democrats had by no aot or deed
given countenance to thejfllibustering
movement. They had not even gone
the length of making speeches, with-
out they fully desired to have
them delivered,and not a single speech
from the Democratic side could be
charged as an attempt to oonsume
time. Demoorate. both repealers and
anti-repealers, had come to the front
and helped to make quorums during
the long night sessions. They had not
loined any effort to filibuster by any
leads whatever, even those who most
radically opposed ttie bill.
It was urged that with this record
behind them they could not afford to
begin a fight whioh would resolve it
self into a filibuster, pure and simple,
as it was announced to be the intention
of the silver men to debate some what
longer and then have ttie roll called
on a motion to adjourn and then a
motion to go into executive session,
alternating these demands contin-
This method of proceedure had been
practically agreed to by the Democrats
who were to assist the silver men with
their fight. It was pointed out by the
more conservative silver Democrats
that such a course would only result
in giving the party a very black eye, as
it would be said that the silver Repub-
licans confined their opposition to
legitimate debate and only delayed
action by long speeches, but that so
far they had not resorted to any
such methods as anti repeal Demo-
crats were now proposing, and this for
the sole purpose of defeating a measure
endorsed by the Democratic adminis-
tration and passed by a Democratic
The more vigorous silver men were
informed that they would not have a
corporal's guard with them if they
persisted in such attempt, and that the
Democratic party, as a party, could
not be held responsible for any such
disgrace as all would bring upon
This sort of reasoning had the de
sired effect. Mr. Harris who has
ever been punctilious when the rules
and traditions of the senate are con-
cerned, was placed in a position he
could not well oooupy, and when he
found his leadership would be made
ridioulous, he informed Senator
Dubois that the understanding which
they had reaohed about continuing the
fight under Democratic leadership,
supported by Republican silver men,
1 iliid'tvzuu Cw■■toS''I'T'd- wa that the De-
mocratic silver men would engage in
no filibustering movement.
The last doubt as to what might be
done in the senate on the repeal bill
seemed to be removed this morning
when Bland, of Missouri, the great
free silver champion in the house gave
up all hope. He had just returned
from the senate where he had been
conferring with silver leaders. He
said to an Associated Press reporter
that he had no idea of any further
effort being made to prevent a vote on
the Voorhees bill in the senate and
that when speeches had been made the
vote could oome. He was asked what
would be done when the bill came over
to the house
“I am of course opposed to that bill
and to all compromises that do uot
recognize silver as money. The bill
ought to be referred to the ooinBge
committee, but beiDg a house bill it
can be taken from the speaker’s table
and senate amendments concurred in
without reference to the committee.”
Mr. Blaud was asked if the silver
men would foroe the repealers to have
“Oh yes," he replied. "They will
have to have their quorum here to pass
the bill.” Mr. Tracey, of New York,
says be fears that the repealers will
not have a quorum when the bill
reaches the house and is convinced the
silver men are ready to delay aotion
unless there is a positive quorum in
favor of repeal. He thicks the honSe
might be oalled on to aot at any time
within twenty-four hours.
Flooded With Counterfeit Money.
WiiEELrabj W. Va., Oct. 25 —It has
been discovered that West Virginia
towns have been flooded with counter-
feit silver dollars. The bogus money
has the true ring but Is a little over
weight and perceptibly large in diatne-
ter. The milling is not perfect, but so
nearly so that it wonld take an expert
to detect the difference. The people
appear perfectly willing to take them
although aware that they were not
minted by the government. There is
no clew to the manufacturers of the Ask for LA INTERNAOIONALMex

Topeka, Kas., Oot. 25—The Boston
and New York directors of the Atohi-
son. Topeka and Santa Fe road came
to Topeka today to attend the annual
meeting whioh will be held tomorrow
No changes in the management of the
road are expected to be made. The
present oflioers will be re-elected and
George C. Magoun will oontirue to
be the ruling power of the system. In
regard to the trouble of the road with
its employes because of its temporary
inability to meet the pay rolls. Pres-
ident Reinhart said the company was
no worse of financially than its neigh
hors. He said the company’s troubles
sre wholly due to the financial string-
ency, but that the outlook is now
promising and the affairs of the com-
pany showed signs of improvement.
He said that the oompany is in a posi-
tion to take care of its obligations and
that its owners are working in har-
Mr. Cleveland Firmed.
Washington, Oot. 25—President
Cleveland came into the city this
morning and was very much gratified
at the turn affairs had taken in the
senate, though he believed all along
that unconditional repeal would pass.
There have been times of anxiety but
never for a moment has the president
waned in his belief. It is learned at
the white house that the president
will have no suggestions to make as to
ad journment, or recess, after congress
has passed the repeal bill, though he is
anxious to have the Chinese bill, ex-
tending the time in which Chinamen
can register,pass before the dissolution
of congress. It i9 the impression at
the white house that no message will
be sent in to the regular session in
The Western Hate Hall League.
Chicago, Oot. 25—Men interested in
the formation of the western base ball
league met here today. Nearly every
town west of the Alleghenies is striving
for admission in the proposed associa-
tion. So great was the demand that
the idea of organizing at once was
abandoned and all applications were
referred to the committee consisting
of C. H. Cushman, John S. Barnes and
James H. Manning. The committee,
when ready to report, will call a meet-
ing not later than November 10, for

Washington, D. O., Oot. 25—Secre-
tary Herbert learned today to his
great surprise that Rear Admiral Stan-
ton, commanding the west fleet in
Brazilian waters, had saluted the rebel
admiral. For this aot of discourtesy
toward a friendly nation, Secretary
Herbert, after consulting with the
president and 6eoretsry of Btate, order-
ed Rear Admiral Stanton’s detaoh-
ment. He is ordered to turn over the
command of his squadron to Captain

ACCIDENT8 ON THE RAIL.
Four Men Killed by «»>• Wreaking of I
Freight on tha Fanntylrnnln.
Harrisburg, Oot. 25—Frederick
Glramell, Richard Doyle of Pitts-
burg, and two men who are orushed be-

roaders out of employment, and were
riding in a box oar. The wreck wae
caused by one of the oars jumping the
track. Ten oars of oil and lumber
A tramp, who was riding with those
already reported killed, says there
were at least fifteen In the wreck. The
oars are so badly piled up that It will
take another day to get the correct
number killed. Three of the passen-
ger ooaohes are In the dltoh and how
the passengers escaped is a mystery.
As soon as Engineer Dan Mahoney
saw the signal he reversed his engine
and whistled down brakes. Mahoney
and his fireman, Henry Andrews,
jumped from the engine and were se-
On board the train were Bald to be
Aroh-BIshop Corrigan, Comptroller
Myers and General Horace F. Porter.

passengers were taken back to Phila-
delphia. The observation, buffet and
two other oars of the wreck were
smashed to pieoes.

wrecked train came into Jersey City
and the engineer and fireman were
taken to the oity hospital.

under the wreok, two of them were
dead, and a number yet remaiued in
the wreok, whose moans beoame less
and less audible.
Houston, Tex., Oot. 25—At Stella to-
day the last oar on the west bound Cal-
ifornia freight. going at a thirty mile
rate, jumped the track and smashed
into an east bound freight waiting
Two unknown tramps were killed
outright. John Door of Luliug, was
also killed. G. Colbert had his leg and
shoulder broken and received internal
injuries whioh will probably result
fatally. A man who claims to be from
Omaha, but refuses to divulge his
name, is also badly injured. Conduc-
tor Platt was thrown through a wire
fence and badly cut. It is reported a
number of tramps arestiil in the wreok,
but officials oan give no information on
the subject. Trains are delayed.

section of the Chioage Express bound
for New York met an aooident at 5:40
