CAUGHT AT LUST.
Tiller, tho St.lxuIsKxpriTliIer,.ptE4
at Milwaukee and 990,000 KrcoTered.
Milwaukee, March 14. Prentiss Tiller,
the Pacific Express Company's agent at St
Louis, who decamped with nearly 5100,000
a few days ago, was arrested at'lO o'clock
yesterday morning by,i Milwaukee detective
and SSO.000 of the. money recovered. A.
young man looking like a tramp, with a
Bmall mustache, brown hair, of slight build
and unobtrusive features, and of about 135
pounds weight,bouglit a trunk at the store of
Carries Schraiii, and on Tuesdav asked to
have it shipped to G. II. Paclien, Detroit,
Mich. He left a valise which he asked to
have placed inside the trunk to save him the
trouble of carrying it. When about to put
the valise in the trunk the clerk dropped it
and the clasps burst asunder, the bulging
coulents rolling out upon the floor. In gath
ering up the bundles he found them wrapied
in Pacific Express Company's labels,
and a closer examination disclosed
that every package contained a prize, the
total amounting to nearly S'.)0,000. The po
lice were notified, and with a description of
inc man iraceu mm to a cheap boarding
house m the Third ward, but he was not at
home. They found his hunk and seized
it. As the boarding house people said
J he man was frequently out all night, the
olice continued searching the city, think
ing he must be out on a "spree. This morn
ing he returned to the trunk store to a-k
about his valise, and was arrested. He had
iHNiii at the Third Ward boarding house
since March S, but it is not known whether
or not; he boarded anywhere else before
that. Besides the money theie was a large
amount of valuable jewelry in the valise.
The money wa.- placed in the Mer
chants Exchange Bank The arrest
of lYentiiS Tiller caused great crowds
forgather at the Central Police Sta
tion, 'buHhe prisoner wa& carefully guarded
and could be interviewed only very briefly,
llcfivus loud in saying he had no accom
plice, but at tlie Mine time it remained for
the company to prove who stole thejnoney.
Hev.-jts very happy, and propo?d that the
Ioliee shut the outer doors and charge the
crowd an admission price to see him as a
runosity. He wa identified by Chicago and
St. Louis agents who were in the city, hav
ing been called from Chicago last night,
when the money was found yesterday.
St. Louis. March 14. Inquiry of the Pa
cific Express CoiuiKiny ollicials here regard
ing ihe arrest of a man at Milwaukee sui
'lHed to be Tiller, throws very little light on
the matter. They are very reticent, and
little information can be obtained. It may
be said, however, that ollicials and detectives
here believe that atter the robbery Tiller's
accomplice took charge of the plunder which,
he being a stranger, was easily taken out of
the city. The arrangement eventually
was that the accomplice should divide the
spoils and send Tiller's to him by express to
Milwaukee, addressing him, of course, in an
assumed name. Tiller reached Milwaukee
on the morning of the Sth, but there made
the troublesome d'scovery that he had for
gotten the name he wa to assume in inquir
ing for his express package. In this emer
gency he telegraphed McFadden, at Sher
man. Texas, asking what was the name the
valise was to bear. Th telegram was in
tercepted, and McFadden. who hail
already liecn locabil. was carefully watched
to determine whether he sent an answer.
He did not, and his arrest occurred a few
"hours later. Meanwhile express authorities
here were notified, and on Tuesday eve
ning a detective started from here lor Mil
waukee. It would appear that Tiller suc
ceeded in lecalling the name he was to as
sume, and got poises-yon of the valine le
fore the detective arrived; but met with
a disaster a few hours afterward,
through the trunk store episode which oc-
- enrred at a time when it is said the whole
detective force of Milwaukee were looking
for him, knowing him to be in town.
A TUNISIA HOHHOR.
Over One Humlrr-il Miner Meet Death by
an Explosion in u Coal Mine.
PtTTKirsnoro, V.v., March 14. Intel
ligence is just received of a terrible ex
plosion in the coal mines of Use Southwest
Virginia Improvement Company at Poca
hontas, Tazewell county, this State. It oc
curred at 1 o'clock yesterday morning, and
over ope hundred men are known to have
been killed. These mines are owned by
a joint stock company couijicwed mostly
o.f Northern capitalists. The work of destruc
tion at the coal mines was horrible and com
plete. There were one hundred and fifty
men in the mine at the time of the explo-
sion. not one of whom is believed to have
- escaiicxL Those not killed outright by the
terrible force of the explosion, most likely
' lcrished from after-damp. A number of
lxlie discovered are horribly mangled,
some of them with their heads torn from
the trunks, and others with the limbs all
gone, presenting an appalling spectacle.
The work of destruction was not confined
"'entirely to the interior of the mines, but
houses two or tliree hundred feet removed
from the mines weie overturned, and in
several instances entirely demolished.
3KA midnight telegram from Pocahontas is
(as follows:" The night hands went into the
mines at the usual hour, 150 strong. A lit
tlejfafter midnight the town was startled
from its sleep by a rejiort that sounded like
the rumbling of an earthquake, followed by
a c-lap of thunder. Soon a messenger came
Vfrom the mines, three-fourths of a mile
away. with information to the superin
tendent tlwt there had been a terri
4b!e explosion there. The superintendent
$and others went to the mines at
loncc. The scene was indescribable. onls
"could not convey the faintest idea of the des
truction wrought m a few short seconds.
Signs of it were plainly visible on every
hand. The entrance to the main shaft was
entirely torn out and scattered pell mell for
f- hundreds of feet, and the little train track
- torn and twisted, and sJiaeles timber and
; ties were hurled in confusion all around.
t Cars were taken up bodily, torn in twain and
. their iron wheels broken and shivered.
They were thrown three and
." four hundred feet away. The
ridce and tiudncs on the ridge opposite this
diittwerea blackened picture to the sum
mit, sis hundred feet away. A searching
." party found a pair of shoes that had been
blown to the summit of the ridge, and a
mule was found at the same place, twisted
into an indescribable siiatte. and the second
entrance to the mine presented a similar ap-
, f pearance to the first.
" Escaped Convicts Recaptured.
''Ltrn.1: Kock, Ai:k., - March 14. The
whole- iarty of convicts who escaped from
- the coal mines near Clarksville, have been
captured. Among them were the Iron
Mountain train routers Jack Callahan, a
murderer from Hot Springs, and other des
perate characters. They immediately
seized several guns and pistols of the guards,
which had lieeii left convenient. andescaied.
.Passing through the country they obtained
i-everal additional guns from farm houses,
and moved in the direction of Spadra. They
excliauged clothes with some tramps whom
they countered on the road, and, keeping
well together, were prewiring for a vigor
ous caiiirw'gn. A detachment of guard
irom the miue followed tkem.
East St. Louis Has a Blaze and Loses Mai
St. Louis, March 12. Probably the most
destructive fire that ever occurred in East
5t Louis took place last night The flames
first caught in a small barber shop hi a row
of old frame buildings on the riverfront sit
uated between the freight yards of the Chi
cago & Alton on the north and the Ohio &
Mississippi on the soutli. There being no
fire department in the place, surrounding
property was entirely at the mercy of the
flames, which spread with lightning rapidity
and in a few minutes had enveloped not
only the whole row of frames but spread to
the transfer stables hi the rear and then to Ad
vance Elevator "A," still further to the east
and the entire property was destroyed. The
elevator had a capacity of 500,000 bushels
and said to have contained between 200,000
and C00.000 bushels of corn, about 50,000
bushels of oats and about 10,000 bushels of
wheat. Leading west from this elevator
was a long conveyer, connecting with Ele
vator "B,"' on theYiver bank, belonging to
the same company. Part of the conveyor
was burned, but the remainder was torn
awav. The elevator itself, which is a large
new" building of 7."0,000 bushels capacity,
was saved. Extending northward the fire
spread to the freight oftit-cs of the Chicago &
Alton road, and to the cars in the extensive
yard of that company. The freight office,
which was formerly the lossenger depot,
was totally destroyed, and a large number
of empty and laden cars were burned. One
train of "six burning cars was pulled out of
the yards to Cone station, near the National
Stock Yards, where the flames were com
municated to a long line of others on the
siding, and all of" them, said to number
seeiity-live or eighty, were destroyed. A
number of cars in the Ohio & Mississippi
yards on the Soutli, and still others on the
track near elevator A and in the'Chicago &
Alton yards were also burned. It is esti
mated that fully 140 cars were burned, per
haps one-third to half of which were laden
with grain and merchandise. Two old re
pair shops of little value, and an axle shop
in the rear of elevator A were also burned.
The losses cannot be accurately stated to
night. Estimates at this writing arc: Ele
vator building, 3150,000 to $200,000; grain,
5200,000 cars and freight S45,000: damage
to freight yards, railroad and buildings, $40,
000 to $50,000; a row of frame buildings,
reiair sliois, stables, etc, $10,000. or per
haps a total of half a million. One fire en
gine and two hose reels were sent over from
this city, but they did not reach there in
time to'do much service, and the fire maybe
almost said to have burned itself out In
surance not ascertained.

where they secured a supply of arms, they
boldly walked out into the street, proceeded
to the lively stable, mounted and rode away.
A posse of citizens was soon in pursuit Five
miles out they came to the body of Cleve

Kb city upon the American continent has
a larger floating population than Wtsbing
ton. It is estimated that during the ses
sions of Congress twenty-five thousand
people, whose homes are in various parts
of this and other countries, make this city
their plocs of residence. Some come here,
attracted bv the advantages the city offers
for making the acquaintance of public
men; others have various claims which
they wish to present, while the great ma
jority gather here, as the crows flock to
the carrion, for the sole purpose of gotting
a morsel at tho public crib. The latter
class, as a general thing, originate the
many schemes which terminate in vicious
bills, all of which aro either directed at
the public treasury, or toward that reve
nue which the black-mailing of corpora
tions or private enterprises may bring.
Whilo walking down Pennsylvania ave
nue the other day I met Mr. William M.
Ashley, formerly of 3-onr city, whose long
reside'uco here has made him unusually
well acquainted with the operations of the
Having made my wants in this particu
lar direction known, in answer to an in
terrogative, Mr. Ashley said:
"Yes, during my residenca here I have
bcome well acquainted with tho workings
of the 'Third Hou-e.'as it is termed, and
could tell you of numerous jobs, which,
like the 'Heathen Chinee,' aro peculiar."
"You do not regard tho lobby, as a body,
vicious, do you?"
"Not neccssjarily s-o; tLrre are good and
bad men comprising that body; yet there
have been times when it must Le admitted
that tho combined power of the 'Tnird
House' has overridden the will of the peo
ple. Tho bad influence of the lobby can be
seen in the numerous blood-bills that are
introduced at every session."
"But how can these ba discovered J"
"Easily enough, to the person who has
made the thing a study. I cau detect them
at a slance."
"Tell me, to what bill do you refer?"
"Well, take the annual gas bills, for in
stance. They aro introduced for the pur
pose of bleeding tho Washington Gas
Light Company. They usually result in
an investigating committee which never
amounts to anything more than a draft
upon the public treasury for the expenses
of tho investigation. Another squeeze is
tho abattoir bills, as they nre called:
These, of course, are fought by the butch
ers aud market-men. Tho first attempt to
forco a bill of tins description was in 1877,
when a prominent Washinjrton politician
offered a fabulous sura for the franchise."
"Anything else in this lino that you
think of, Mr. Ashley J"
uYcs, there's the job to reclaim the Po
tomac flats, which, had it become a law,
would have resulted in an enormous steal.
The work is now being done by the Gov
ernment itself, aud will rid the place of
that malarial atmosphere of which we
hear so much outside the city."
"During your residence here have you

"Well, while I have not at all times en
joved good health, I am certain that the
uilllculty which laid me up so long was
not malarial. It was something that had
troubled me for years. A shootinjr, sting
ing pain that at time attacked different
parts of my body. One da3' my right arm
and leg would torture me with pain, there
would bs great redness, heat and swelling
of the parts; and perhaps the next day the
left arm and leg would b similarly af
fected. Then again it would locave in
some particular part of my body and pro
duce a tenderness which would well nigh
drive me frantic There would be weeks
at a time that I would be afflicted with an
intermitting kind of pain that would come
011 every afternoon and leave mo com-
taratively free from suffering during the
talnnce of the twenty-four hours. Then I
would havo terrible paroxysms of pain
coming on at any time during the day or
night when I would be obliged to lie upon
my back for hours and keep as motionless
as possible. Every time I attempted to
move a chillv sensation would pass over
my body, or 1 would faint from hot flashes.
I suffered from a spasmodic contraction of
the muscles and a soreness of the back and
bowels, and even mv eyeballs b2canie sore
and distressed nie greatly whenever I
wiped my face. I became ill-tempered,
peevish, fretful, irritable aud desperately
"Of course you consulted the doctors re
garding your difficulty J"
"Consulted them? well I should say I
did. Some told me I had neuralgia: others
that I had inflammatory rheumatism, for
which there was no cure, that I would Lo
afflicted all my life, and that time ulone
ould mitigate my sufferings."
"But didn't they try to relieve your mis
eries:'"' 'Yes, they vomited and physicked
me, blistered and bled me, plas.ered and
oiled me, sweat, steamed and everything
but froze me, but without avail."
"But how did you finally recover?"
'" "I had a friend living in Michigan who
had been afflicted in a similar way and
had been cured. He wrote me regarding
his recovery' and advised me to try the
remedy which cured him. 1 procured a
hot tie "and commenced its use, taking a
tabk-spoouful atter each meal and at bed
time. I had used it about a week when I
noticed a decrease or tlie soreness of the
joints aud a general feeluig of relief. I
persevered in its use and'tinally got so I

"Certainly; I haven't been so well in
years as I am now, and although I have
been subjected to frequent and severe
changes 01 weather this winter, 1 have not
felt tne first intimation of the retu.n of
my rheumatic trouble."
'Do you object to the publication of this
Interview, Mr. Ashley?"
"Not at all, sir. I look upon it as a
duty I owe my fellow-creatures to alleviate
their sufferings so far'as I am able, aud

The fact is well understood
that the MEXICAN MUS
TANG LINIMENT is by far
tho best external known for
man or beast. The reason
why becomes an "open
secret" when wc explain that

other is so largely used or
does such worlds of good.
