Arrest of the Notorious Mrs. Browu
at MtiBon City , In.
Blio Commits a Horrible Crime nncl
Attempts to Fasten Suhplolon
on Her Iliislmnd mill
Mix. Drown Arrested.
MASON Cm. In. , August 4. [ Special Tele
gram to THK Hrn.J The now famous liiowu
case , which has attracted so much notoriety ,
was brought to u culmination lo-day by the
nrrost of Mrs. II. U. Urown , charged with
mingling poison In the food with Intent to kill
her husband , Hiram II Hrown. The com
plaint was in the form so as to make the hus
band's ' testimony admissuble. Although Mr.
.Urown has furnished the necessary money to
employ n detective in working up the case ,
ivlien it came to making the complaint lie
weakened and declared that ho had rather
die. His biother , Waller E. , who has been
prominent in his endeavors to solve the
jnjstcrlous affair , flled the necessary In
formation and upon that u wai rant for her
nrrcst was Issued
Mrs. H. K. Urown was found at the
SJUenco of her uncle , Judge George
tfarmilliPa , u respected and promi
nent citizen of Ihls cily. She
manifested no surprise whatever , having for
several da\s understood that a warrant was
soon to bo Issued for her arrest. She was
brought before Judge A. II. Cummlngs , and
on consent of Iho parties the case was con
tinued to next Thursday. Her bonds were
placed at W.IKX ) , which she readily secured.
At the lime of the coroner's Inquest , con
niderablo comment was occasioned by the
ncrsistcnt effort of Mrs. Urown to fasten
the guilt of the crime upon her husband. A
short time after the investigation was com
pleted , she went to Harrington , 111. , for Ihe.
purpose of visiting her parents. VYhUa
there fiho received some confidential
communications from a friend bore ,
thiough which she learned that
the case was being investigated by
detectives , and lhat she had best be
careful. She was evidently alarmed oy these
disclosures , nnd Immediately in nil o prepara
tions to She loft suddenly that nieht ,
telling her friends that she was going to
ftlason City. Her baggage and her licKcts
bowed Hint her destination was Lang-
worthy , In. That fact was immediately tcle-
grilphcd nnd an ' 'opcralor" started to shadow
her. She arrived there in tbonlnhtuiidwcnt
to the house of her old friend , Miss % Hcssio
Miller. Her movements were closely watched ,
nil her sayings and doings cat ofully noted ,
nnd her lettois intercepted , all of which con
tained very damaging testimony against her.
In a letter writleii lo her old friend , Miss
Bcssio Lake , about the time of the coroner's
Inqucsl , she HUJS Hint she meant to put it on
to Hiram ami end thu miserable life she was
leading. Some of the damaging letters were
shown to Mr. Urown last evening , nnd ho
- identified them as being Ihoso of his wife ,
but said ho could not account for much of
the contents ,
While Mrs. Urown was at Montlcello she
was confronted by Iho detectives with the
evidence against her and was chnigcd with
I the murder of her son Jesse and her fathcr-
iti-law , Hiram L. Urown , and the attempted
murder of her husband and son Henry , and
after she had been told that all her move
ments were known she broke down , saving :
"There wore no eyewitnesses , and you can't
provo it. " The oillcers claim to bo in pos
session of evidence of Mrs. Urown's pur
chasing diluted prusslc acid and Uough on
Kuts in the past year without the knowledge
or consent of her husband , and further lhat
she was skilled in the uses nnd abuses of all
the principal poisons.
The txjrsistent efforts of Mrs. Hrown in
her evidence before the coroner's Jury to
fasten suspicion on her husband and inducing
t Potcrion to assist her is a strong point
against her iu the cose. Added to this are
the facts of tier hatred for the family and the
I unhappy relations existing between them ,
and her utter Indifference nt the sickness
Is and death of her child nnd her father-in-law ,
during the entire time never having been
seen to shed a tear or heard lo express a re
gret. '

It is a very remarkable book written by
a now writer of great power. It makes
eujoyablo'reading by its clearly defined
ideas , the originality repealed in the
unexpected relationship of certain
ideas ; the daring jot dogmatic cxpies-
sion of opinion , the vivid impression
produced by an extraordinary command
uf the Englibh language and above all
the authors' inexhaustible enthusiasm
and delight in study. It will afford a
mental stimulus of lasting power and
value , and is a noble vindication of the
claims of philosophy in a liberal educa
T. B. Peterson & Brothers , Philadel

the greatest possible care and labor to
this work , and in view of this fact , as
well as its timeliness , the publishers
expeet that it will receive much atten
tion , and meet with u very largo sale.
It will be wol illustrated , and is to bo
published in a variety of editions.
No. 5 of the Manhattan borics , pub
lished by A. L. Hurt , Now York , is
"True to Herself , " by Mrs. J. H.
Wahoo , author of "Tho Bar Sinister , "
etc. The author has boon true to her
self in giving the public a story which ,
while sensational to a dramatic degree ,
is totally lacking in the "Hash" element
of the so-called bcnsational novel of the
day. In this connection wo will say
that Mr. Burl's plan to ptoduco the
wotksof American authors oxelushuly
deserves the coidial support of encour
agement of American rcadori.
The latest addition to campaign liter-
atuio is the "Log Cabin Song Book" of

All the appropriate songs are icprintcd
from the famous campaign book of 1840 ,
loviscd for IbSS , and published by the
successor of the publisher of the original
lied Hair Hated Long Ago.
How are wo to account for the popular
prejudice against red hairV Is it con
nected with the tradition thatJudaa
Iscariot was red-haired , or is it of
earlier origin ? So strong was the sen
timent against it in the middle ages
that one of the chroniclers denounces it
as "a burning brand of infidelity. " It
may very well bo that the hatred with
which William Rufus was regarded
awed an extra dash of intensity to the
olor of his tawny locks. Not a few
mous personages , how oxer , have boon
ndowod by nature with hair of this
atal hue ( which their flatterers , no
doubt , persisted in describing as au
burn ) , for instance , Anne Boloyn ( Mr.
roudo speaks of "her fair hair Hewing
loose over her shoulders" ) ; Queen Eliza
beth ( Sir Richard Baker describes hers
as "inclining to palo yellow ; " Fuller
uses the convenient epithet , "fair" ) ;
Columbus , the poet Camoons , and
Marshal Noy. Ono does not like to
think of red-haired poets ; but the
reader will lind that auburn , which has
at least n warm tinge on it , has not been
uncommon among "the brotherhood of
the tuneful Ijro. " Shakuporo's hair
and beard wore auburn , if wo may credit
the orighml coloring of his bust in
Stratford's church , and Milton's "hyn-
cinthino locks" were of a similar color.
But Burn s hair was black , and Byron's
of n , dark brown.

Gentlemen arriving lieie fiom New York
icpoit that the betting in the metropolis on
the approaching presidential election has al
most ceased. The genoial ticiid of public
opinion toward Harrison and Morton lias
checked the enthusiasm on the ether r.ulc to
such an extent that the book-makers have
almost closed up business. Then the an
nouncement that Mr. Ultimo intends to de
vote all liis time , beginning about the
25th of this month , to speaking foi
the icpublican ticket has disheartened those
who have been placing their money on Cleveland -
land and Tliurman. Instead of twotoono
us were given u month ago on Cleveland the
best offoiB of odds that nio being made now
are * 1,000 , to fsOO. or JIO.OOO to * 5 , < 00 in fuor
of the democratic ticket. Some betswoio
reported in Wall street j estcrday of Jtj.OOO on
Harrison and Morton to W.OOO on the detno-
ciatic ticket , and a Montana miner was
searching to got even buts on Cleveland.
The icticonceot Chairman Qua" and the
great Jlood of visitors to the republiaau com

measure is practically'completo so fur us tlio

bo ready to report to the sennto before the

appropriation bills and the llsheries treaty

When their bill is done they will submit it
nnd hnvo it passed just as it comes from the

sions of the treasury department which aio
being stubbornly insisted upon and which
HI a based on ambiguous phi uses and stern
technicalities for the put pose of forcing nub-

bill , and. which are bilnglng about in
justice to manufacturers. Those who have
neon the bill say it will reduce the incomes of
the govpi nmont moro than the Mills bill.
The reduction on sugar is 40 per cent , against
25 in the Mills bill , and the duty on leaf to
bacco is llxcd at T.'i cents per pound , and
fillers at 13 cents It is said that these i ales
will be to the decided advantage of giowcrs
of leaf tobacco throughout the rountiy , and
will allow them to dilvo out Sumatra and

WASHINGTON , August 4. [ Special to Tun
HnB.J "Wo had a very hmd tussol , " said
ono ot the oldest republican senators this
morning In discussing the pending debate on
the llsheries trnaty , "to secure open doors
for the cousideintion of the Jishorles ques
tion. Iho lepubllcain would not have in
sisted that tlto treaty should bo discussed
with open doors had it uot l-een that the sec-
re taiy of btato and the president were back
ing up llio democratic henatora in an offensive
line of policy a policy of prcut offense to the
republican members of the commltteo on
foreign relations. They vrora Insii.lng that
It was pinocussedncss moving the republi
cans In their opposition to the ratification of
the treaty.
This charge was roado so repeatedly that
the country ioouicJ to bo arriving al tba con
clusion that the opposltiop to thn treaty was
not based purely upon' equable and Just ,
grounds. It Is n legal quostlon. The treaty
of 1819 elves us far moro right In the Cana
dian territory than the treaty now pending
to the senate , and inasmuch oa tba treaty gf
ISIS Is nlivo on the law books of our diplo
matic department foidlbnly requires enforce
ment , there Is no necessity whatever of our
surrendering the right ! \er.v much needed.
"A few dos before tqo vote was taken upon
the proposition to dl < ic ss the treaty in open
doors , " continued the sonata * , "an oftlelul
statement was given to the public by demo
cratic senators to the effect that In reality the
republicans were oppoAcd to open debate on
thu treaty , because H would expose their
partisanship , and Iho Weakness In their posi
tion , and that the democrats were nil light
ing for an open discussion. Had not this an
nouncement been rondo It is quite probable
that the treaty woiHd not hnvo been openly
de&atcd , because the republicans were arriv
ing at the conclusion 4lmt there might bo
some Indiscreet thing said , from u diplomatic
standpoint , during the debate , nnd therefore
it would bo better lo discuss the trcnly m
the usual way , behind closed doors. As soon
as the democrats assumed this false position
before the public a special caucus of the re
publicans was held , nnd a vote was
at once lakcn upon the proposition
to tlnow open the doors. Only
tin oo Pcnntois Edmunds Chandler nnd
Halo voted against open doors. Wo passed
a \erlial resolution to the effect that wo
would vote Bolldly in executive session for
open discussion of the treaty. This was op-
pcscd by the lluco senntois named , and only
the usual obligation held them to stand by
their paity. When the quostlon came up in
c\ecuiive session and the ujcs and noes were
called upon the proposition to discuss the
llsheries ticaty in open session the demo-
ciats , Inhering under the impression that our
tanks weio not solid , nnd that at least throe
of our number would \oto against the pro
position , began to vote foi open doors , the
object being to ha\o Just enough democrats
\oto lor open session to relieve Hie mailer of
pnttisinship thai Is , to make an appear
mica of democratic acquiescence , and
nt the same time to defeat the proposition ,
When the call had proceeded almost to the
end it became apparent that the majority for
open doors would bo ton or twelve , and it
was fun to see the democratic senators
get up , one by one , and in the most solemn
way ask to change their vote from iijo to no.
Every lasl one of them did this , mid in the
iibscnto of Senator Halo Iho vole was a lie.
There was the sickest lot of democrats you
ever saw when the announcement of the
vote was made. Wo immediately telegraphed
lo Sonalor Hulo , who was in New Yolk , to
icturn to Wusnmton , and ho came back.
' 1 he irenllcnuMi fiom Maine was laid down
upon in the most \ieoious manner. At the
next cxecutls o session ho came to time , volcd
witli us , and it was ugieed by a stud patty
vote that the ilsheries Ircaly should bo dis
cussed with open doois "

parlor in a ptivuto residence , and is the
place wheio ladies go when they wish to see
lucmbcib of coii r-ST and from wheie thi'i
send their cards in to the logislntois.
The ludUs' reception room is ono of thn
oldest institutions mound the capital. It
was established at the time the picscnt hall
of the house of leptesentulivcs was con
structed. Oi igmally there was seldom seen
in this room mi Impute woman , but later it
began to dogcneiato nnd the weaker sex of
questionable charactei beiran habitato it
Two or three da\i ago a icpicsanlalho of
the woman's national league , of this city ,
called at the housiJ to see Mr. Lawler , and
liom the loccption roomjSho sent her caid lethe
the Chicago member. Mr. L.uvlci was tuld
l > v the doorkeeper that a woman was in the
lecoption room , and , hoicplicd.
That's all iniht , but I won't go out there ,
all the same.
Tineo or four days aftprwaids Mr. Lawler
met the , woman iu'tho con idor of Iho capitol
and apologised.
"I did not menu to treat you disrespect
fully the other day w lion jou sent mo jour

mound the cnpitol jilong I ha\o mau > It a
rule to never go into that reception loom ,
which Is nothing loss than n haiem. I
do not mean to rcrMct upon the good
women who go there ; 1 only mean to say
theio are a great manj bad ones who hang

that no solf-icspecting man would bu found

"Cull for mo , " iopl od the ChiiMgo con
gressman , "to como to some othi < v door than

on iour card what business ib desired of mo.
If you could heur Iho comments the mcuibcis

they refer to it us "the harem , I don't believe
you would ever go into it again. "
"Who makes the ladies' waiting loom so
disgraoefuli" inquired the lady.
" The members , I suppose , " replied Mr.
Law lor.
Aftei ward this representative of the Nn-
tloral Woman's league was discussing Iho
utliludo assumed by Mr. Lawler , and she
took occasion to pay him some voiy excellent
compliments , and to lead a moral lectuio ,
and in the com so of her observations she
said :
D"l am very glad that there is ono man in
the house w ho has the moral stamina to
stand up for what ho thinks is right. There
are comparatively few of them , who will
take the position ho occupies. All this said ,
however , it is a buining shame that n place
us public ns the ladies' w ailing room to the
house of icpicsentalives , where llio purest
nnd best known women of the countiv are
obliged , at times , to go where tiio wives and
daughters , mothers nnd sistois of incmbera ,
senators , cabinet oniccrs and those
from the gieut body of people through
out the country must sometimes congiegate ,
if they visit the capilol to see their filends
in the hous.0 , should become so debased. Of
course the great majority of women ivho are
seen about this loom are pure and food ; 1 > ut
there are just u suftlricnt numbei of the dis-
roputuolo lo leaven Iho mass. Ceitainlv
iheio would not bo any of those depraved
women around the capitol If liioro was not a
demand for them among mcmbcis of iho
house. It Is n leilcctlon upon Iho good
moineis tliioughout the counii.v.
Show mo n vulgar obscene man , and
that man has had a coaroo mother in nearly
every instance. No matter what his ht.ition
in life is , vulguiilv and obscenity and inoial
depravity will cling to him ns his natural
boon and inheritance. I think the Woman's
Nulional league will lake some kind of
united action on this matter , and see if it is
not possible to ciadicnto Iho evil Inllucnccs

ago they occupied sixth place In the pennant

a fractional difference separating them from

plnjed they have won thirteen , n record that
has not been surpassed by any of the West

H was Milwaukee's turn jesteiday. She
lost hi a score of 4 to 1.
There was nothing cxliaoidlnnry about
the game , and nothing locnlhusoover except
ing the foliutous fact lhat Omaha dangled
another seal ) ) at her belt.
The twirling on bolh sides was fine. The
locals got live hits and the visitors four , nnd
each scoicd a tiio of onois Omaha's weie
of the decayed otdnr , Hums and Annis both
inuftlng gieat big horse ilics.
Now the cianks and the croakers must
nssoveiLti nnd nssevoiate is no slouch of a
woid lhat thu Omaha's wouldn't support
I.o\ett. That will bo in conson
ance with their programme so far.
Uut let's sen how it happened , anyway.
The Highland songslcr was Iho tlrsl man
to face Stephens. Ho wont out from Tors
ter to Fuller. Then Stephens attempted to
stave In Annis' ribs with the ball and Hagan
sent him to lirst. Ho stole second. Crooks
then took ills position nt the plate , and after
ejecting abaut a half pound of well masti
cated "Slur" f torn that fountain of sweet
sounds of his , ho smashed the spheroid out
against the right field fence for a sack. Billy
galloping homo. Crooks also pilfered sec
ond. O'Connell hit to ITorstor , WMO made a
double play , anil P. O. was safe and Crooks on
thltd. Of course tliero was a melodious oul-
burst fiom the 1.00 spectators there. Cooncy
now came foi th Ho never said a word , but
lined the ball out to where
Mr. MeAlscr was tramping down
the clover , and O'Connoll and Crooks chased
each other name. Coonoy , much elated wilh
his good luck , essayed lo teach second , but
was cauirht on the liirow in.
That was too bad , Iho people do so love lo
see Iho bo } s make runs.
The Hcer Jerkcr.s failed lo score.
In the second Lovett went out
on a high spring chicken to War
ner , but Miler got bin base on balls.
Hy Iho wnv , did you know lhat Miller's homo
run hit in Thursday's game struck Jeff Hcd-
ford's "Hit Mo Per Twentj-live Dollars , "
way out m deep centerl Nol Well , it did ,
and Jcif guvo him u chock for that amount
lusl evening.
Uutaswoweio saying a moment since ,
, Tea got ills base on balls. Ho went down to
sot end on Naglo's 11 v to McAleer , third on a
wild pitch and home on Foster's fumble of
the Poet's gioundcr.
That is the last run Omaha got. But It
was plenty.
The visitors failed to score until the fourth ,
then they got in ono little , emaciated , cudu-
verous tally , and that was nil.
How'd they manage to do it ? Why , after
KOI ster had tiled out to Burns , Sir Joseph
Strauss , from Covmgton , Ky. , hit Mr. Lovctt
for a beautiful thieo bagccr , and made homo
on Fuller's out from CiooUa to P. O.
That's about nil there was of it. From
this point on out it was 1111 uninterrupted
low of goo = o egga for both hides. Some lit
tle additional inteicst may bo derived from
the olUchil scoie. H H appended :

Kenalor Yoorhees Uicn onteiod upon llio
lariiT issue and recounted Iho bisloiy of mod-
cm larilt legislation. No relief , the
speaker declared , was afforded to
labor by a icsort to the domestic
cxciso system. On the control y , Ihls
si stem was made the piotoxt for still fuithcr
encioachments on the part of monopoly and
greed against the rights of those who toil.
The two acts of congress of ISd'J nnd IslH , by
which protoctiye duties woio made to asi end if ]
to a Pike's peak altitude , were demanded on til
iho expresj'inound Unit tlio manufacturer
should bo compensated for Ihe amount of his
internal lax. On Una point Iho puuker
quoted extensively fiom Senators Moirill ,
Allison nnd others , and said that for nine
teen years the republican parly has cauaod
Iho people to pay the manufacturer at least
$100,000,000 a i ear In ronsidciatlon of a lax
paid by Ihe manufncluror lo Iho govcinmcnt.
Money kings hnvo tlus far icslstcj
every effort to reduce the mountainous tni it !
duties by whluh Ihoy have di allied Iho earnings -
ings of the people.
Senator Yooriicos then discussed Ihe labor
quostlon and surplus. Ho declared that the
luboi intc-iosls of the country need in circula
tion every dollar that can bo spaicd from the
expenses of the government , nnd jot tlicio is
piled up us n usnless surplus enough of tlio
laboring people's money to paj * down cashmere
moro than * -UUO for every day since tiio biith
of Christ.
Touching upon the icpubllcan internal lev-
cniio plank , bcnatnrVooi bees said : "In this
Christian land and ago men sometimes
spoken of us Christian statesmen have
nothing boiler Ihan fieo wliiskj' and lobacco
to oner the people in iospon o to their cry
for relief. The slave holders of the south
once belonged to a class which composed the
money power. They once wci o tlio monopo
lists of cheap , inidoi paid labor. The most
bitter und implacable tmppiirtota of slavery
thirty j'eats ncro , woie , in Innt , the most sue-
cessful nnd elllclcnt abolitionists of the nine-
tcenth century. They stuick too far , and
their blows ciimo hick lo deslioy Ihom. And
so it will bo vvilh the puiic-prond , insolent
nud misled tux luadoisot iho picscnt day.
Hy milking no corn cssion to tlio overtaxed
people , and by refusing n single dollar of ro-
ductlon on the necessities of life , but on the
contrary insisting that whisky nnd tobacco
should bo free , the tnanufnrtuiors have done
more lo promote ideas of fieo trade In inis
country in Ihe last taw months than tlio i 4
olorjucnt and silted tongues and pens of ' '
Frank Hmd , Henry Watlorson nnd David
A. Wells. "
