I Messrs. Woolworth and Ualdwin fol-
owed with appropriate remarks nnd
the court formally adjourned for the day
Following was Mr. WoolworlliN
speech , which he road frommanuseript :
The sudden death of the vice president Is
an event of factious moment to the nation ,
and demands solemn notice In the courts of
the tcdeial juilsiliellou.
In thii civil polity ol the country , his rank
was next to the chief mniflstnicy. Jlisolllcc
wascieateil to supi ( iienmf prompt sue-
cession , In thofU' . of vacancy in the presi-
dcncy , so thai , the supremacy of Hie Inw
should continue without suspense. Hut by a
reversal of thu order , lie , aualnst the misfor
tunes of whose demise .solicitous provision
was made , survives in the exercise of his du
ties , wldlo he who in the exigency was to
. succeed to ( hellish functions himself Is dead ,
So do thn devices of men come to naught.
Uy a singular and wise provlson , the organic
law ordains for ( ho vice presidency Inactlvl-
tfes rather than a Isu epait of the strife and
passion of the administration ; so that the
personal character and relations of the in
cumbent illicit be held in reserve , and , if un
happily called thereto , he should come to I ho
chief magistracy a new man and of hlRli char
acter. Xext in rank to thu president in
whom are vested exhausting and transcend
ent power.he ' was charged with duties little
less than formal , and responsibilities that
iinfrciiucntl } are giavc.
And yet in the country , amid Ids fellow
citizens , be held no second place and wielded
a scepter of no small potency. Ho was a
great character , and men paid him the homage
age of their first and reverent attention. J5y
a long career of nalilotie service , lie had
earned the right to speak lo thu people ; mid
they gave heed to his words as those of a wise
man , and they were largely swayed by his
opinions as those of a pmv , honest , faithful
leader. Xo second plucc was his in the pub-
lie. confidence , and no uncertain memory will
lie yielded his name in tin * national aH'ccllon.
It was not the olllce which -Mr. llendrlcks
held that made him Illuslilous : butlijs ser
vices , ills character , his life. Among the
semiloifi. and mlnicUmr with the people , ho
was a grand liiruro. Nature had set her mark
upon him. Ills goodly Joini rose In dignity
among his fellows ; his amide brow , Ids mild
lint glowing eyes , his benignant countc'iiaiice
traced deep with the lines of thought , til bespoke -
spoke a wise , a serious , a vlgoio IH mind ,
And his gracious and graceful heaiinu , never
lofty to the lowest , never ImrMi even to ml-
vcrsarics , told the tale of a life full of charity
and service and self discipline. Such be
was as a statesman. lint to the
bench and bar of the federal courts
liu was more. In these forums , where great
cause.- : are mjilatcd , qiiolions of the last im
portance debated , and final judgments pro
nounced on the gravest issues , there lie most
and greatly exenistd ; himself. His giaco
was that of iheeoiiMimmntt' liyerbls ; diet Ion
( lie purest KiigliMi ; ids thought us clear as
the waters of ' ( ho deep and silent river ; his
illustrations as abundant as the experiences
of life : his leas'onlng as cogent as the vital
truth ; his tiulhiuliicssas certain as the en
lightened conscience of HID good man.
'Ho was a lawyer all Ids life , lie beitan his
career at the bar ; be ended It there. He held
to his profession amidst thu cares of otllce
and the excitement of party strife. When
chief magistrate of Ids state , he tried causes ;
when senator In congress , lie argued In thu
courts ; from the i popular assembly , lie turned
to the Judicial forms and illustrated them
with ins great advocacy.
Jlu was more than a statesman and lawyer ;
lie was a devout Christian and faithful mem
ber of the Kpbcopal church. Senior warden
of St. i'aul's cathedral , member of the diocesan
cesan council of Indiana , and at one time its
chancellor , and delegate In the general con
vention he spared neither labor nor thought
nor money for the church. Ho believed in
her dogmns , he rejoiced in her services , ho
received her saciaments , he died in the cath
olic faith. Ho rests In peace , and a perpetual
light shines upon him. With what , terrlblo
frequency this people has bcon called to
the open grave of her cieat servants.
One of thu lord oh let justices of
Kngland , pronouncing judgment in thu great
contest about the earldom of Oxford snid , " 1
heard a great peer of this realm and a teamed
say. when In : lived there was no king In
chiislendom had Mich a subject as Oxford. "
And then speaking of the mutability of hu
man nobleness lie said , "and yet time httth
his revolutions : There niu-t boa period and
an end of all temporal things , tlnls rerum , an
end of names and dignities ami whatsoever

is thu human greatness , save another life fol
lows after this.
Mr. lluldwln's remarks diflercd from
those nf the gentlemen preceding in this
fact that tnuw wore extemporaneous.
Thu speech was brief but paid in olo-
qnent terms , a splendid tribute to the
dead statesman.

A case of rape under peculiar and ag

Monday evening about live o'clock , little
Kmmii ICranse , a twelve-year-old girl ,
left her homo near Mul/'s brewery , sent
on some trilling errand by her mother-
She had gene but a. few steps when she
was met by two women , one of whom ac
costed her and remarked that .sho would
show her something nice if she would
accompany them.
The littlis girl , as she says , followed them
without thinking that any harm would
result. The two women look her oil'
into an old barn near by. Here she
was set upon by a man , who threw her
down and made her a , victim of his lust.
In the muunlimu the women lied , and the
girl was left on the spot in a semi-uncon
scious condition. Thu name of the as
sailant is unknown , but the
two women who connived in
the crime arc believed to be
neighbors of the. ICraus'es nnd their iden
tity is a matter of wcll-nigli absolute

The Pci-ixjlfalors of Which suto
Arrive Jlcrc To-XijIH From
Deputy Marshal Allen arrived last
night from Denver with live
prisoners , who were indicted at the
last term of the United Slates grand
jury. They are charged with having de
frauded and conspiring to defraud the
United Slates of : i largo amount of pub
lic lands bv causing various persons to
enter lands at the. North 1'lutte land
oJlicc nnd thn MeCook land oilieo under
the names of fictitiousparties. Many of
these were employed in Denver for $5
and.expenses to proceed to MeCook and
North I'latto land olliccs and en
ter the land in the- names of
fictitious persons. Some of the
persons so employed * have niado
as many as half a entries of
Innd all under fictitious names who never
went or slept upon the ground or entered
it properly. Most all of these swore they
resided in Cheyenne county , Nob. , and
had made the improvements required hy
law , and th-it they were all residents o'f
Denver , ( . ' 1 ratio. The number of fraud
ulent lam. a tries made will reach from
101) ) Io200. U is thought that the defend
ants arrested are backed by a largo mon
ey syndicate , nnd several of the defend
ants have remarked that there was a mil
lion of dollars behind them. It is also
understood that largo fraudulent entries
were made in the land ofiices in Clioy-
enno , Wyoming , by the same parties.
The names of the parties who arrived
hut night are arc as follows : .Ino. C.
Turner , Frank , Hugh Hvan ,
Alanzo M. Wells , James Dormin. They
were all locked up in the county jail.

Kd Kane , a suspicions character , was
arraigned before Judge Stenberg yes

inveterate opium eater. In fact his intel

shuttered , that ho is butter lit for thu lit

other foibles is that of thieving , llu can
not restrain from this propensity , and
will invariably walk away with anything
ho sees , if his fancy so dictates. This
time ho had stolen the overcoat belonging -

"Where do you board ? "
"At thu Republican ollleo. " This re

down the house. The judgu reasoned
that Kunu if boarding at this hostelry
would get nothing to eat but liberal
hunks of the 1'ier.son sensation , which
would bu enough to account for his thin

Lauer passed a sleepless night anil as
his cell is isolated saves for thp adjacent
quarters of a condemned murderer , il
can be imagined that his dreams brought
to him no soothing fancies.
His cell is on the second floor , llio
farther cast of the two especially con
trived for the restraint of desperate char
acters. Vet that has no significance , in
factns the chamber is snacious , well
ventilated and Hooded with light. In
the center of the room , itself secured by
heavy doors and barred windows , stands
a cage , seven by eight feet in lateral di
mensions nnd about six mid a half
feet high. Its grated door is locked
and its lattice frame work is of steel .so
highly chilled that no liie or saw can
make an impression and no heavy sledge
bent ! or break its unyielding temper.
In this enclosure , upon : v pallet lay
John Lnucr when the reporter called tins
morning. The prisoner lay with n blank
et drawn clo.-eiy about him , nnd at inter
vals would shake as though with a chill.
His face betrayed suffering nnd he look
ed altogether Hke. a sick man. The re
porter asked him if Iio was ill , to which
lie nodded assent.
Laner had little to say. Ho remarked.
however , that his committal without bail
was no surprise to him. Ho did not
know whether a writ of halloas corpus
could bo obtained for him , but was satis-
lied that Mr. Tliurstbn was confident of
being able to do en.
A few friends had called in Iho morn

Cardinal McCloskry was fond of a good
joke , llo liatl n keen and lively H-IIW of
the hinnorous , and his fnc-nlty of dis-
criminnlioii is said by lhoi-o who know
him inlimnlely to Imvo been of an ex
ceedingly higli order. It is known that
he was po sp i-l of nn nccurato literary
taste , and Unit IIP was a severe anil
criilenl vcholar ; lint to all except the e
who stood on tlii- closest terms of in
limnc.y with him il may spom slrnuj. .
thai < ( resrrvpd ami austere n man
hould have been af much nl homo in
plon = nnt society as in the pulpit. That
sijeli was the ea.-o , however , is fully
vonclicrt for. One of llio bc-l stories his
EminpiiPi- ever told , and ono wldeh he
frerpiently repeated among his Intimate
friends1 , was the following incident re
specting Arehbi-hop Hughe * : :
One wet uiglit iu IStt" the archbliehop
was summoned to Ihe parlor of hi ! > resi
dence in Moll stivpt by a man from
LiiKi-nip count v , I'a. , who gave his name
ns Wheeler. He was a < liirdj backwoods
clmvactcr with a loiidvaice , an honest.
open countenance , ami a candid s-pon
taneilyof manner ( lint was plelure qne
in the cxlreiue. On oiitcriiig the jiarlor
the atchblsboas ] familiarly tiddrpsvpd
us "Mr. lliijrhi"t" and > vn a-ked to tauc
a sent lie declined ( he invilalion. how-
jner , nnd for n few moments stood gaz
ing al the M ranger in blank u loni < h
menl. He sectn perdc\pd. ( The visitor
performed all the honors , and did most
of the talking for the lir-l live miniitn- .
He explained that il was Ids intention lo
enter the I'oman Catholic fold , ami thai
ho had coinc on to have tinceninoin
performed by the hijilu-l church digni
tary he know of. F : thcr McCunc. an
old pric t in central I'cnn lvauia , had
instructed him in the rudiments of the
faith , and he thought ho was about pre
pared to begin hi- noieeship. .
Archbishop Hughes became interested.
HP listened to the man patiently for o\
oral minutes. The stranger talked and
talked , without the remotest intention
apparently of coming to a .slop. He
would not ho interrupted. He. talked
about the weather , polities , crops , even
thing but the subject under considera
tion. The archbishop paced nervously
up mid down the room , 'filings were
gelling desperate , 'flic vi-ilor appeared
to appreciate Archbishop Hughes' di -
eomtiture , if lie did not positively en ji v
il , and every now and t lion , by way'of
parenthesis , would remark :
"Sit down , Mr. Hughes ; MI down , ami
make yourself at hojiie.1
Although UiNVls ! uttered inlhesin-
pcrpst manner imaginable the , novel ! v
soon wore off , and after a while from the
dint of frequent repetition il ceased lo be
even original. The archbishop could en
dn re it no longer. Ho was not in an
over cheery mood nl ( lie. time , owing tn
the dreary state of the weathei ami was
not disposed to tolerate iiimson.-e. Hit
decided lo bring the interview to an end
if possible , nnd ( irmly said :
"Sir , 1 am in my own bouse , nnd can
ntnnd up or sit down , ns I please. "
The IViinsylvnninii was not in thelea-l
abashed , lie failed lo see ( he force < > r
the remark , as a matter of course , and
again n siired ( ho archbishop that hu
ought to sit down. At length an oppor
tunity presented itself and Archbislioji
Hughes bcgai to inlcrrognlt- ninn as
to what he knew of tin ; ( ' : ilholic religion.
lie began with the ordinary questions in
the introductory catechism , which llm
neophyte said he had studied.
"Who made you ? "
"Why did IIP make y > iiv"
"To know Him. love. Him and servo
Him in this world and be happy with
Him forever in I he next.1
"Where is Hod. "
"God is everywhere , but i.said princi
pally to reside in Heaven.1
"Where is Heaven. "
The man Jiesitntod , paused and for
once was silent. Suddenly recovering
himself , however , he nnswoYcd :
" "Well , Mr. Hughes , that iiu
wasn't in the book , but -but 1 Mippo-u
it's up above. "
"Now , then , " said the archbishop ,
looking squarely in ( he man's eye- ,
' what does tied do in heaven ? "
Thai was a poser. The Pennsylvania n
was bewildered. Ho scratched bis head
in a vain eltort lo think il enl , but .some
how the idea had never Mruek him be
fore. llo was almost on the point of
giving it up , when Ids face bright cued as
he responded :
"That question wasn't in the book ,
either , Mr. Hughes ; but between .von and
mo 1 guess ( 'oil is in Ills own house up
( hero , and can stand up or sit down as
He pleases. "
Archbishop Hughes bur.- 1 out into a
hearly laugh , and grasping the man's
hand shook it warmly. They were warm
friends after that.
Cardinal McCloskoy related this anec
dote with such an evident appreciation
of thepointof the story , and with such
nn eloquent elaboration of detail that it
never failed to produce unlold mirlli.
