A bold bit of highway robbery took
plnoo at a late hour Saturday night , the
victim of whieh wai Mr. I'd. Murray , n
deaf and dumb man , > vho lives on Horace
Dvorctt'H farm near Underwood , about
fourteen miles from the city. Murray
was proceeding homeward , with his
team and wngon , and when about four
miles the other side of Parks mill , three
men jumped out from tlio roadside ,
slopped the , ti'nm ' , and nsaiuilU" ! him so
liereely that ho wan knocked out of the
wagon onto the ground , and Bounded M >
badly that ho was inbeniblc. . and
when he en mo to himself ho
was lying in u Hold , the fellows
having nppniently thrown him over
the fence , after searching his pockets ,
and had then driven off with the team.
They only got $ ' 3 from his pockets , the
rest of IIH money , about $ : )5 ) , being hid
den in InsHhoos , fo thato-enped their no-
tkv. lie found bis way as best he could
to a neighbor's house , and thorn made
his trouble known. The authorities were
at once not i lied , and telegiams wore
.sent out in every direction to head oil1 the
follows. Yesterday word was received
from Avoca that , the team bad been
found near there , but , the fellows had not
been captured at last reports. Murray
was pretty badly battered up , but not
SItot y n Special Top.
There nave boon several rumors the
past tew days about some special police
man recklessly liring a revolver , but it
has been difficult to get at the facts as
the chief of police has claimed to know
nothing about il , and other olllcials have
been equally reticent. H seems , how
ever , that there i.s considerable to the
affair notwithstanding the relioeuee , and
it appears to bo a , sufficiently important
mutter to have boon officially and public
ly investigated. The mayor has had a
special policeman unmed Voight , who is
a tailor , but who his : been so annoyed in
hi.s neighborhood , in the southwestern
part , of the city , that he prevail' d upon the
mayor to appoint him as a special , with
the understanding that ho could then
easily look after some fellows \ylio were
breaking lamp lights in his vicinity , and
doing other mi-chief. The pinuingofa
star onto his breast seems to have pulled
him up with a great idea of bin authoiity ,
and he has been u-ing it pretty freely.
Ho IIIIH made several arrests , as appears
from the books , and soinn of thom whom
he has arrested have had the record of
the arrest scratched off the boohs , it ap
pearing there wai no cause for making
the arrest. One such was a man for ped
dling without a license , whieh is sup-
nosed to be the duty of the mars'lmj to
look after , rather than a. special serving
without pay. A short time ago he want
ed to have tome help to arrest : i crowd
of folio WB , whom ho thought were suspi
cious , and were hanging about in n way
that did not suit him. He wont on to tell
where this one of the crowd worked , and
where another ono , etc. , and wound up
by wanting them all pulled for vagrancy ,
which indicated pretty clearly bis ideas
of vagrancy. Ho was advi-ed to let the
follows alone , unless they were commit
ting borne ojlcn&u. It appears that lie
aroused the ire of some ot these parties
by what they doomed his olliciousnoss ,
and the other night , when there was a
supposed burglar captured for being
found in Mr. Kclley's fioueo , this special
policeman was on hand , and after the
tellow had been lodged in jail there was
quite a little crowd who had followed the
prisoner up lo the jail , and as
they were going down the htrcel
again , the up-'oial policeman felt it
incumbent upon himself to give
them sonic abrupt orders as to how they
should move on , and insisted on having
them proceed quietly. Some words fol
lowed and an altercation sprung up , and
one of the party Mruck the special police
man. It is claimed that almost immedi
ately upon the blow being dealt the spe
cial pulled his rc\olver and llrod at the
man who struck him. The ball entered
the llcshy part of the thigh , and after the
wounded man was taken home a , doctor
was sent for , who probed to a depth of
three iuchijs for I hi : ball and was unalilo
to lind it. The wounded man is not con
sidered to be in any danger of losing his
life , and it is said that he wants nothing
made public about the affair on. account
of his relatives , and does not want
them to know that he was mi.\ed
up in any such street scene.
Tlio special policeman lias made no
publicity to tlio affair , bucaiibc be is
doubtless ashamed of it , and does not
care to have the matter aired up. It is
said that the chief on hearing of the af
fair at once went to thu special police
man and took Ids star away from him ,
ami his appointment was revoked. It is
not known whether the policeman had
any bonds , and it is quite probable that
he had not tiled any , for .some of thu po
licemen serving regularly have been al
lowed to go for a long time without tiling
Presentation ( o Armour.
Yesterday there was the change , ill-
ready announced , by which Tom ISow-
man is now postmaster of Council lilulfb- ,
and I'hll Armour i.s the ox-postmaster ,
and coming sheriA' . In retiring from the
oflieo ho can feel a ured that the busi
ness men and citixonb generally regret to
sco him go , and they appreciate what ho
has done to improve ami increase the
service hero. Seldom does a man re tire
from a public ollloo , taking with him
such ! i unanimous feeling of the public
in bis favor , and so many kind assurances
that ho has served the people well. The
feeling of the employes is even more en >
thusiubuu over him than thu outsider.- ; .
They bad a better oppuilunity to know
mm as a man unit as an oflichil , and
they heem unanimous in their assertions
that a better man to work under is
among the haid things to find. Taking
oil' bis coat , and entering into the work
alongsidtuif them , always good naturcd ,
and yet energetic and prompt , ho in
spired thu whole force with a de
sire to attend closely and faithfully
to duties assigned them , and won their
esteem as well as their respect. Jn view
of thu change , and fouling that seine

Visit hit ; tlio I'oiulcr HomcfUciul.
Kd Wright , the stenographer , has just

ho has been visiting friends. During hid
absence he vi.iitod the neighborhood
made famous by the horrible crime of the
lleuder family , the dNoovorj of whioh po
startled thu whole country about twelve
years ago. lln relates some interesting
facts nnd reminiscence.- thu family
and UK ; location.
Whore the house once stood nothing
now remains to mark the spot e\eopt the
half tilled vacuity that once answered
the purpose of a collar. Curious relick
seekers have carried aay the la t rem
nant of the building and and all Its ap-
uurtcnanccs , even to the last stone that
helped to compose the collar \\all.
One eircumstanco that serves to main
tain an interest in this event so long past
Is the 1'icl that feu , if any , know whether
the Hender family escaped and are living
to-day in some distant country , or
whether they were oapUrod by a .small
mob who quietly put tliem to
death and forever afti r held their
peace. Regarding this point ,
some are of one opinion and some of an
other. The story lias niinyvariationH ; ; ,
but runs substantially as lollows :
In earl. } days , while thai legion was
sparsely 'settled , this family , consisting
of an old man and his wife , and a son
and a daughter , took up their abode at
the. place referred to , which U about ton
miles west of n little village oallod
( lulcsburg , in Neosho county. .There
they kept a .sort of wayside inn , making a
business of keeping travelers over night ,
and wo nii hl add , to see that they nuver
proceeded any further in the direction of
their desired destination.
When : i tra\cler was beheld approach
ing some member of the family would
station himself at t1"1 roadside in front
of the house , and awlhc unsuspecting in
dividual drew nigh , would accost him
pleasantly , inquire in a friendly manner
whore ho was going , and if it was any
where near evening would assure him
that it would bo impos-iblo to roach hi0
destination before night tall , and propose
that he .should remain over night with
them , while the traveler generally acqui
esced to the hospitable proposition.
it seemed that the inside of the build
ing had been arranged with \iowto
the accomplishment of their ghastly de
signs. The front room and a small
apartment back of it wcro separated by
a thin curtain drawn across somewhat
in the manner of the curtains used enfolding
folding doors , while in the center of the
room was a trap door.
When a man whom they had marked
as a victim entered the door of that room
his doom was sealed. He would be
otl'ijrcd a chair sitting so that its back
would bo toward the curtain , anil M ) near
il , that when sat down , thu back of his
head would be against it.
Behind this curtain in the little
apartment above mentioned , was
concealed the female fiend. Mi's Kate
liendcr , having near at baud two ham
mers , one large and ( no other small , and
a , sharp knife. When the unfortunate
victim would become deeply interested
in pome exciting or amusing conversation
with the other members of the family ,
who pretended to be exceedingly' jolly
and vivacious , the murderess behind the
curtain would deal him a blow in the
back of the head with the large hammer
that would drop him senseless upon the
lloor ; then rushing from her hiding place
she would deal him another blow in the
temple with the small hammer : where
upon the male members would drag him
to the trap door , over which they would
hold him while the insatiate monster in
woman's form drew the knife across his
throat , after which they allowed the
bleeding corpse to fall through the aper
ture into the collar.
Sometimes there would bo two or three
travelers stop ut ono time at this abode ,
upon which occasions as many members
ot the family would take their places
behind the curtain , selecting their victims
at the critical moment. Again there
would occasionally come a man who.
when otferod the fatal chair , would
unconsciously remove it to home other
position , rendering it inconvenient to
strike him a sure blow from the place of
concealment. Under such circuniitiinces
the family would always be very mirth
ful and Imally propose u game in w Inch
it. would become incumbent upon the
bt ranger , In acting a certain part , to fall
upon his knees and cla-p his bauds in
the attitude of prayer. The place
selected for him to do thin would ( > o on
the trap door. When in tlio re
quired position Miss Kate would
steal softly from Whind the
curtain and strike him dead as lie knelt.
They always aimed to make death cer
tain ; provided they thought tho. .ttrangcr
had valuables worth the trouble.
Their "discovery eamo about as
follows : A man left his wife some
where in easjp.ru Kansas to go
and make arrangements for set
tling further west , saj lug that as soon
as matters were adjusted , which would
be within a certain slated time , ho would
return and take her west with him. Ho
went and the time set for hi.s return
came , but he didn't come with it. He-
coming alarmed at his prolonged ab
sence. his wife Bet out to overtake or
meet him. She , too , stopped to remain
over night with the Howlers. It didn't
seem to bo their ihtention to murder her ;
at least not In their usual manner of per
forming the bellinlr act , While sitting
in the room alone , she picked up a locket
that was lying , on a stand , Opening it
she was surprised to'porocive In.r own
picture in it and that of her little gill op-
jiosito. She kneW then that the locket
had belonged to her. husband , having
bom worn by 1dm ius a charm on his
watch chain. Her suspicions were
aroused , but someone coming in prevent
ed her from escaping , andlinallysho was
taken up stairs to retire , but not to sleep.
She was planning an cseajio from the
building. After a titiiu she arose and
looked out of tlio window , and was as
tonished to sec the light of a lantern
fewinging in a distant part of an apple
orchard on the promises. Sliu succoeiled
in stealing softly out of the house with
out discovery , and druw near the light ,
winch she watched till the parties wont
away , awl then went to the place awl
found a newly-made grave. .She hid out
on the prairie all nlgnt , and \vlmu morn
ing came , went to a neighlior's house ,
and told hor.H tory. The alarm
teen spread abroad awl poo-
pie ( looked to. the house from
far and near in great crowds. Hut the
familv had disappeared. Their horses
wcro found standing hitched to a wntfon

A young man from the country , named
II. J. Brown , was seeing the city Satur
day night , awl fell into the company of
some railway boys , among them one
named W. F. Crew , who cluiuin to be a
brakeman on one of the roads running
iii bore. Brown hays he kept spending
his money freolj with the boys , and
when it was about gone , and there seem
ed to be a shortage of wealth with the
others in tlio party , it was suggoited that
he should let his watch bo pawned , so as
to provide moans for wore drinks , to
whieh ho objected , but bis protests were
not , heeded , and the watoli wits taken
from him by force. He claimed that
Crow was the one who thus robbed him ,
and the police being informed hunted up
the ollendcr and arrested him. The
watch was found hidden in the grass a
short distance from the caboose where
( Vow was found. Ho denies that he in
tended to keep Iho watch , but the way in
which il was hidden is strongly against
him. Yesterday an attempt , w.is being
made to get the matter squared up , but
the ollicers , who had spout a good deal
of time in hunting up the case , did not
take kindly to the idea of having Crow
