Judge McLean, the president of the
Savannah, Mo., Savings institution,
which failed a short time ago, was ar
rested Thursday and put in jail for em-
" bezzlement. His bond was fixed at
$1,000, but no one would become his
surety. There were several warrants out
for his' arrest, but he was jailed on the
first one. It is alleged that he received
. money when he knew the bank was in a
shaky condition.
Nearly $3,000,000 had been raised in

If Kearney succeeds in securing a

because all the state will be benefited.

but also to the distributing points of the
manufactured product Chicago, Oma

reason why the far-eastern states should
have a monopoly of this business. Ne

The examination before the coroner's
jury resulted in their finding as follows:
"That the body before them is that of
Patrick H. Cronin, known as Dr. Cronin.
That his death was by violent means.
That he was decoyed from home on
North Clark street on the evening of
May 1, 1880, by come person or persons,
to the cottage known aa the Carlson cot
tage, situated at No. 1872 North Ashland
avenue, in Lake View, Cook county, BL
That at said cottage he was murdered
by being beaten on the head with some
blunt instrument in the hands of some
person or persona on the night of May 4,
or between May 4 and 5,1889.
That the body, after said murder was
committed, was placed in a trunk and
carried to Edgewater on a wagon by sev
eral persons and by them placed in a
catch-basin at the corner of Evanston
avenue and Fifty-ninth street, Lake
View, where -it was discovered May 27,
That the evidence shows conclusively
to all minds that a plot or conspiracy.
was formed by a number of persons for
the purpose of murdering the said Cron
in and concealing his body. Said plot
or conspiracy was deliberately contrived
and cruelly executed.
We have carefully inquired into the
relations sustained by said Cronin to
other persons while alive, to ascertain if
he had any quarrels or enmities, with
any person, sufficient to cause his mur
der. It is our judgment that no other per
son or persons except those who are,
or who had been, members of a certain
secret society known as the United
Brotherhood or Clan-na-Gael, had cause
to be the instigators or executors of such
plot or conspiracy to murder said
Many of the witnesses testifying in
said case have done so with much evi
dent unwillingness, and we believe
with much mental reservation. We find
from the evidence that a number of per
sons were parties to the plot and the con
spiracy to murder said Cronin, and that
Daniel Conghlin, Patrick O. Sullivan,
Alexander Sullivan, and one Woodruff
alias Black, were either principals or ac
cessories, or had guilty knowledge of
said plot and conspiracy to murder said
Cronin and conceal his body, and should
be held to answer to the grand jury.
We also believe that other persons were
engaged in this plot or had guilty knowl
edge of it, and should be apprehended
and held to the grand jury.
We further state that this plot, or con
spiracy, in its conception and execution,
is one of the most foul and brutal that
ever came to our knowledge, and we
recommend that the proper authorities
oifer a large reward for the discovery
and apprenension of all those engaged
in it in any way.
We further state that in our judgment
all secret societies whose objects are
such as the evidence shows that of the
Clan-na-Gael or United Brotherhood to
be, are not in harmony with and are in
jurious to American institutions."
Alexander Sullivan was arrested after
the verdict and incarcerated in cell No.
25 in the tier known as murderer's row.

A telegram from Greeley Center, Neb.,
to the Bee, under date of the 11th, says
there is present there a stranger about
50 years of age, bearing a striking re

given by the papers. All efforts to dis
cover who he is or to make his acquaint
ance have failed.
A Traveling Mas Killed by Bis lament'
At Clay Center, Kaa, last Tuesday, J.
B. Wellington, a traveling salesman
for Strauss k Co, a. St Louis
millinery house, was shot through the
head by Dr. J. B. Stewart, the ball enter
ing just above and behind the right ear,
passing through and lodging on the op
posite side. Wellington has been un
conscious ever since, and death is cer
tain. The shooting took place on the
main street, and was witnessed by a
large number of people. The doctor's
oldest daughter, Ula Stewart, one of the
prominent society ladies of Clay Center,
was married about eighteen months ago
to Frank Hood, cashier of the People's
National bank. A few months ago she
became acquainted with Wellington, and
the two have been frequently in each
other's company, which caused her hus
band to separate from her about a month
ago. Notwithstanding warnings of dan
ger, Wellington has frequently visited
the town and made his boasts that he
would yet have the company of the
daughter, notwithstanding she was
kept secluded by the parents. Recently
he came to Clay Center to spend his va
cation, and made himself conspicuous
in the neighborhood of the doctor's
house. This morning at the hour named,
Wellington, apparently with the inten
tion of creating a disturbance ran
against the doctor and made some re
marks, at which the latter struck him
with his cane. At that Wellington
reached in his hip pocket as if to get a
revolver, at the same time running into
the street, when the doctor fired the fa
tal shot The doctor at once went to
the sheriff's office and gave himself up.
The state fair was located at Lincoln
for five years, which time will -expire
this year. It is believed that among the
citizens of the state there will be a
warm and excited contest to change its
location. Other cities in the state than
Lincoln will want a turn at the fair, and
will evidently discuss the subject and
present their claims. The most just and
equitable way to dispose of the location
of the state fair, will be to locate it for
the first coming five years in some town
or city near the center of the state.
Such a location would aooommodate
more people than fixing it at one extreme
comer or at one aide of the state, and
should the rule of equity arid conveni
ence to the citizens be accepted, it never
will be fixed at the comers or aides of
the state in the future, but as near the
center as circumstances and conveni
ences will permit Scarcely a county
fair grounds within the state or near the
center at least, but what with some ad
ditions, might accommodate a state fair.
The state board of agriculture will not
meet, we believe, to change the location
till in January, which will give ample
time to discuss the subject. On the
justice of the center principle we urge
upon the member of the state board
from Platte county to submit the claims
of Columbus. If the member from
Platte county, B. H. Henry, should fail
to obtain the location for Columbus, he
would have the satisfaction of allowing
that he had done what he could. Co-
lmmbns ought to have that fair.

The truest politeness comes of
cerity, and goodness of .heart Wither
spoon says 'true politeness is kindness
kindly expressed." The manner in which
a kindness is done, often affects us as
much as the deed itself; but a good
deed donaharshly, is like unto a stony
piece of bread. True politeness has re
gard for the comfort and happiness of
others, and combines self respect with
respect of the rights and feelings of
others, alike to the rich and the poor,
and will cause us to be quiet, easy and
unobtrusive in society, and to never
bint by word or manner that we think
ourselves better, wiser or richer than
those about us, thus increasing the hap
piness of those with whom we daily come
in contact, and also our own, for our
truest happiness consists in makine
others happy; therefore we lose nothing,
and gain much, by being polite to all.

He stood in a doorway on Woodward
avenue the other rainy day with an um
brella in his hand and he seemed to be
waiting for an opportunity. One soon
came tripping along. She had no um
brella and he stepped out, raised his
own and began:
"Excuse me, but"
"Oh, certainly," she laughingly ex
claimed. "You are very, very kind. I
shall remember it. Good-bye."
And she took the umbrella from his
grasp and tripped away without ever
once looking back, and he returned to
the shelter of the doorway to exclaim:

A special from Dewitt, Ik, says: A few
days ago a mad dog passed through the
farming community southwest of that
place and several persons were bitten,
among them Mrs. Byner and a 9 years
old daughter of Peter Miller. They have
been successfully treated by Turner Ev
ans, of Paris, Linn county, with a mad
stone. This stone is not longer than a
man's thumb, weighs one-fourth of an
ounce and resembles a dark sponge. Its
properties were first known 190 years
ago in Virginia, and it has been in the
Evans family ever since. The present
owner received it of his father more than
twenty years ago, during which time 700
cases have been treated, and in not one
case has the stone failed to effect a cure.

From our regular correspondent.
The president has made the anti
Mahone Virginia republicans happy by
telling a delegation of colored men that
he did not contemplate recognizing ex
senator Mahone in the distribution of
federal patronage in Virginia, and to
morrow the committee appointed by the
recent gathering of anti-Mahone repub
licans will have a hearing before the
president. They will endeavor to con
vince him that they are the proper par
ties to control the patronage. It is not
at all likely that the president will rec
ognize either faction of the party in
Virginia to the extent of giving them
control of the federal appointments. So
far, the few men appointed to office in
Virginia are without exception, Mahone
men, but the Mahonites explain this by
saying that ninety-nine one hundredths
of the working members of the republi
can party in Virginia are what is known
aa Mahone men, and that it is next to
impossible for their opponents to get
properly endorsed for office.
Secretary Tracy has ordered the com

wrecked sailors on his coast. The boat
will be finished in about six weeks, and
will be sent to Samoa in charge of three
of the naval officers, survivors of the
recent disaster, who will also carry an
autograph letter of thanks and gratitude
from the president to the king.
Civil service commissioner Lyman has
received a telegram from his colleagues,
.who are making an investigation at Troy,
New York, stating that owing to glaring
irregularities they had cancelled the re
cent examinations held there. A new
examination will be held on the 15th.
The commission will start west this week
to make a number of investigations.
The present commission seems to be de
termined to have the law strictly en
forced, something never done before. It
is not possible to make such a humbug
of a law popular, but it is something to
know that it is being, as far as the com
missioners can control it, honestly ad
ministered. Secretary Windom is not satisfied with
the opinion given by solicitor Hepburn

of foreign instructors without violating

Capt George A. Armes, U. S. A. retired,
to confinement within such limits as the
secretary of war may prescribe, and to
deprivation of the right to wear the uni
form and insignia of his rank in the
army for five years. Capt Armes was
charged with conduct unbecoming an
officer and a gentleman. The principal
specifications being, intruding upon the
ranks of the inaugural parade, and at
tempting to pull the nose of Gov. Bea
ver, in a hotel lobby. Armes is generally
regarded as a little more than nlf
cracked, but his war record was an un
usually brilliant one, and it has pulled
him through several scrapes as bad as
this one.

lain's colic, cholera and diarrhoea remedy
will admit that it is the most prompt,
reliable and successful medicine known
for these complaints. It costs but 25 or
60 cents, and may be the means of Bay
ing you or your family much suffering,
if not life itself, before the summer is
over. For sale by druggists.
He who fights tbe devil with his own
weapon, must not wonder if he finds hiv
an over-match.
Have you heard what Mr. G. L. Weast
of Cambridge City, In&,says of Cham
berlain's colic, cholera and diarrhoea
remedy? If not here it is: "During last
summer I was troubled very much with
severe pains in my stomach and bowels,
and was induced by a friend to try this
remedy. I took one dose, as per direc
tions, and it gave me almost instant re
lief. I cheerfully recommend it to the
afflctod." 25 and 60 cent bottles for sale
