CincAdo , July 111. ( Special Telegram to
the BHK.I Late this afternoon Sheriff MatRon -
Ron received advices to the effect that the
much bought after McUarlglu has landed ,
either last night or this morning , at Point
Edward , Ontario , which Is nearly opposite
Port Huron , Mich. The advices were very
meager , but as near as could bo ascertained
he landed from the schooner Marsh. This
would appear to corroborate thu story tele
graphed from Mackinaw n day or two ago
regarding thu supposed transferor McUarlgln
Ire m the schooner Blake to thu Marsh. Every
effort Is being madu to oblaln additional re
liable information In regard to thu matter.
Thu sheriff and deputies havu no doubt ot
the truth of this last tuport , and it seems set
tled that the "dandy boodlcr" Is safe at last
In the dominion.
What action will bo taken Is problematic.
Sheriff Alatson has wired the governor ask
ing him to request the national government
to communicate with the authorities at Ot
tawa nnd request their aid In the capture of
pn escaped convict , tnkeu from Chicago by a
Canadian boat and Canadian crew to a Cana
dian port. Nu dcllnlto reply has been re
ceived to tills request. Another point that
may be raised , and Is now being considered
by State Attorney Grlnnell , Is whether for
gery can bo shown In anv ot Mcarlglu's ( !
crooked work that Is , a clear enough case of
iorgery to make hltn extraditable. Mr. Grin-
cull hardly knows as yet whether any ol' the
bills , estimates nnd papers prepared by the
ex-warden will bear that construction or not ,
but It Is a point favorably thought of by him
and he and Shurlft Matsou's lawyers will
look into it closely.
McUarlcluvhen he madu his escape , not
only broke his parole as a man , but as a
Knight Templar. Both Sherill Mutson and
himself are Masons , and this fact had some
Inllucnco In the trust reposed In thu ex-war
den by the sheriff. Knichts Templar and
Mnsons , who are a power In every clvtlUed
land , will undoubtedly keep well In mind
this action of McOarlgle , and if hu should re
main at largo In Canada It will not tend to
make his lilt tire very comfortable.
A special from Sarnla , Ont. , says that Me-
( tarlgle , the Chicago boodlnr , who lay In the
Chicago jail under a sentence of three years ,
nnd leaked through thu bath tub from Sheriff
Matson last Sunday night , was landed at
Point Kdward this niornlm ; about S o'clock
from the schooner Kdward Blake , on which
he was suspected as leaving Chicago. The
schooners Marsh and Blaku were In the same
tow , the Blake being last. The tuc Oriole
had been on the lookout here and ran along-
iloe the Blake nnd had a conversation with
llio oftlcors there. The Oriole , hav
ing Chicago detectives and reporters
on board , steamed up to the Marsh
apparently to nave tbo captain of the Marsh
let the Blake tow line go where they wore In
American waters , just opposite the Port
Huron water works , where the detectives
could take McGarlgle. The Blake line was
let co , but at that Instant the yawl was low
ered from the Blake and JdcUarlslo auil a
VMlor irmflo for the land sldo , McGarlglo
Delng landed at Point Edward. The Marsh
went on and the Blake remained In the river
ill this afternoon. MuCarlglo made his way
liere and was driven to Courtrlght , twelve
nuloH down the river , ostensibly to catch
boat. lie was driven back here ,
however , nnd Is In the city.
There mo various rumors as to Ids where-
ibouts , the Chicago reporters stating that he
loft for the east on thu 10 a. ru. train. Such
in not the case. McGariglo has his moustache
and small Hidebiuns still on and looks
Dronxed alter his trip on the lakes. He Is ap
parently nervous as to his safety , but the
: hlof of police states that ho has no authority
to arrest him. The detectives have or-
anged for communication all night between
here nnd Port Huron In hopes of being nble
: o get him over , but McQarlgle keeps away
From the river and has been walking about
lome of the back streets with a party who
drove him to Courtrlght and back again. The
Chicago police have been notliied of his ar
rival here , but have not yet ordered his arrest.
Appaiently ho Is safe on Canadian soli.
About 7 o'clock he bunted up a dry goods
merchant to purchase a DOW hat. liu Is tulr-

Very Heated Tilt.
MILWAUKEE , July 31. fbpeclal Telegram
to the BKE. | For a few minutes yesterday
afternoon the officials at the court house
Imagined that a Kansas tornado had pounced
down upon them. In making an argument
before the railroad committee of the council
favoring a sought-for franchise , Peter Mc-
Geoch , the well known speculator nnd presi
dent of the Milwaukee City railway com
pany , referred to "Hoss" John lilnsey , who
Is uorklng In the Interest of an opposition
franchise , as the "Mike McDonald of Mil
waukee , " and handled him quite severely.
Hlnscy said nothing at the time , but meeting
McGcoch in an adjoining room , stepped before -
fore him with clenched list and called him a
dashed liar. Doth men are deaf , and In their
excited state it was natuial that they did not
spunk In whispers. They shouted nnd bel
lowed , McGooch expressing his pridu at not
helm : a professional political schemer , and
Hinsoy reciprocating by explaining that hu
had not thrown happy homos Into ruin by
laid deals , wheat corners , etc. The shouts ol
tnu excited men wure heard throughout the
building , and completely "broke up" n coun
cil committee meeting. Blows wcru about tc
liu exchanged when a police olticcr appeared
upon thu scene and piuventcd furtner dis

township 34 , range 41 , nnd failed to make set
tlement thereon within six months thereafter ;
that the last named tract has since been
entered under homestead by Paul Johnson ,
and that Damon by filing a soldier's declara-
ory statement exhausted his rights under
the homestead law. The claimant contends
that nt the timu of filing tils
said soldier's declaratory statement ho
was residing upon a tract upon which
he had previously settled under the pre
emption law and upon which ho.subsequently
proved up ; that thereforu his said tiling
under the homestead law was Illegal In Its

Mrs. Turnoy by name , from Vnn Uuron ,

with larrency but was never taken Into court
to answer to thu charge , and at the time of
his alk'KUd trial ho was not pormltcd to sou

mentof ; the case Is that there was a collusion
with the district attorney by which the boy
was kupt out of court , and Ills trial was
rushed through In his absence , so that thu
district attorney would get better fees than
ho could If the trial had taken Its usual
course and the boy had had au opportunity

whole case went by default whtlo the boy

The state hoaul of health , whoso paternal
solicitude for the welfare of the people Is un
ceasing , and all-embiaclnt ; , is just now
wrestling with a proposition that has been
submitted to | t trom New Hampton. It is
suggested that the extieme stmllowness of
the rivers throughout the country is largely
responsible for diphtheria and other 7.00-
pleytlc diseases , and It Is proposed that the
dams on the various streams which hold thu
water back shall be removed , allowing the
current to pass unimpeded , thus preventing
an accumulation of green slime and other
breeders of disease. The board has
taken the matter under consideration , but
will probably not decide to order the dams to
be opened , out will trust that the public

'njury to growing crops and relati
ng the harvest. In the central y l-
eyand lake region less than the usual amount
ot lain occurred and the urought continues
In the corn belt , extending from Ohio west

lamfall was generally In excess in thu states
on the Atlantic coast , throughout the cotton

ot lain throughout the corn belt has aflected
this crop unfavorably and reports
from Ohio , Michigan , Indiana and
thence westwaid to Kansas Indicate
that the drought has unfavorably aflected
the potato and corn crops. In the middle At-

In the neighborhood ot 2,000 people wnto at
ho ball park yesterday afternoon to welcome
he Omaha's home and see how they would
come out with thu Wtchitas.
The reception given thu Omahas was a
warm one , but that given the sons of bleed
ing Kansas by the local team was red hot.
There Is no doubt now but what the Oma-
ms arc In splendid form , and they put up a
butter game of ball than at any tlmo since the
opening ot the season. The elimination of
he old deslntcgratlng element was the best
; hlnK that ever happened the team. They
liave gone on Improving ever since , nnd this
liappy condition of things , coupled with their
late triumphal tour , has infused them with a
.vintldenco that must beget somu gruat play
ing. Thu new men , too. havu added much to
he general symmetry of the nine , and every
thing looks favor.tblo now ' , for
some grand sport from this on to the end of
The game yesterday , while It was a good
game , abounding with many brilliant special
Features , did not awaken the enthusiasm
that would have marked a struggle between
the Omahas and the Topekas , or the Lin-
coins or Kansas Citys. It was a toicgouo
conclusion that the homo team would win ,
and In consequence , the game seemed list
less and dratrgy , barring brief Intervals of
excitement the line plays occasioned.
.Everybody was glad to t.co the Wlchllas
beaten , not because of any conceived wis
dom or antipathy for McGrifllii's irang , but
simply and solely on account ot ; their di//.y
It was enough to give a blind man the
Think of It. Kcd caps , belts and stockIngs -
Ings , and yellow , the yellowest kind ot yel
low , shhts and pants , They looked Ilku a
lot of llumpty Lnimptss masquerading over
However , the visitors played u very credit
able game , lidding admirably , sprinting
well , butvuiu lamentably weak at
the stick. Hut the Omahas , they batted like
fury , ran thu lines Tilth speed and discretion ,
and in the lieM and on the bases worked Ilku
machinery. Mauaecr I'hllbln may wull take
a justifiable pride in his recent work , lie is
training the boys down In a manner that Is
promising great things.
The Omahas wure lirst at the bat , but for
threu innings they were quickly and neatly
retired. In thu touith , though , they broke
the Ice , and never slopped until threu ot thu
umerald-ho9Cd had crossed thu plate. Messttt
started this inning with a corking drive past
thhd , stole second with ease , ami took thlid
on a halt passed ball. Itader took his base
on live bad balls , and jogged down to second
a moment latur. Krehmeyer was also pie-
MMitod with a basti by Pitcher lialdwin , and
thu next man. Fusselbach , he banged In thu
libs with the ball , and the bags all being oc
cupied , Messltt vras forced in.
( ionlns then hit one witli a quantity of
caloric In It , and LeUhton allowing it to get
ttuoiuh him. Uader and Krehnievcr ran
home , and KusselLmch tried to make third
but was extinguished. Handle then flow out
to Ilabor and Ousslo llarper sawed the at-
mosphure four str.tlttt , and went into the box.
In the sixth , Krebmoyer and liennln , on
two good hits , a passed ball nnd two errors ,
added a tallv each to Omaha's score , and In
the sevenlh Bailer stepped up to the plate
with his jaws hard at woik on a chunk ol
tolu , and the liist ball pitched he lit ontolor
a home-inn dnvo that was a beauty. It went
further betore striking the ground than any
ball hit on the Omaha grounds tills season.
This was the last run lor the home team.
Thu Wtchltaa , boldly handicapped by old
cold wedding garments , drew blanks up to
the seventh inning , the Omahas accomplish
ing n line double play in tno fourth. In the
seventh , on n nit and a steal and two outs ,
lialdwin scored the Initial run for the Wield-
tas. In the following Inning they succeeded
In getting the bases tilled , but thu clock-like
work of thu Omahas , who closed the Inninc
witli another brilliant double , prevented
them liom scoring. In the ninth they got
two men over the rubber , and the game was
over.Hero Is the score :
