"WF.NON * , 111. , Nov. V--fSiwcinl Telegram
to TUB Bni.J : This village Is in n fever of
excitement over a double murder , followed
by the suicide of the nssasiin , this morning.
The victims of the brutal assassination are
Peter Howe , senior member of the banking
firm of Howe ft. Son , of this place , and his
wife the former nged scvcnty-thrco years
and the latter sixty-nine. They lived in a
largo two story frame house situated about
half nnillo from the business portion of thu
town. The only other occupant of the house
wm n domestic. At (5 ( o'clock this morning ,
ns she came down stairs from her bed-room
to begin her dally duties , the light of a lamp
which she carried fell through the open
door of Mr. and Mrs. Howe's ' bed-room
mid revealed a ghastly Blirkt. The
walls and bed clothes were covered with
blood , and lying on the coverlet was a car
coupling pin to which adhered hair nud
clotted blood.
She ran to communicate the terrible story
Irwln Howe's son-in-law. The latter
to a Mr. , - -
ter nt once suspected Charles Hurkhart of
committing the deed , und a watch was
placed on the rooms where ho resided with
his wife over a grocery store , situated in the
principal business block of the town. Burk-
iiart was observed walking up and down thu
hallway apparently in great ngitatlon. It
was not long until he dl.scovcred that senti
nels had been posted outside , mid ho went
into his bedroom , procured n razor
and cut bis throat from car to
car and was a dead man
Inside of five minutes. His wife , who had
been In nn ndjolnlin : room , hcaid his dying
mentis. When she entered the room ho re
quested her , as best ho could , to "euro for
the baby. "
The cause of this terrible deed is attrib
uted to petty spite on thu part of j'urkhart.
The domestic in the houbO of the murdered
couple , Snrnh D. Klclmrdson , n handsome
lass of nineteen , uud Burklmrt's step
daughter , was often importuned to como and
live with him , mil she refused to do so , and
ho thought thu Howes were at the bottom
of her objections. Ho therefore concluded
to murder them. Some time during thu
early hours of this morning he left
his appartmcnt , procured u ladder
and cnteied asccond story window , descend
ing thence to the room where the fearful
crime was committed. Nothing was taken
from the room , Burkhnrt's only desire being
murder.
Peter How < \ the murdered man , hud been
a resident of Wcnona for nearly thirty years
and amassed a fortune of 250,000. Ho was
very charitable and possessed a spirit of pin-
lanthrophy which led him , some time ago , to
endow thollouo institute ntNcwIbcrcnLu. ,
and the Baptist Institute at Memphis , Tcnn. ,
the latter being n college for the educatinnof
indigent persons of both races. The murdered
wife is a sister of George Parks ,
the Magnolia (111. ( ) , millionaire. . Burkhnrt ,
the murderer , was a dissolute , drunken
fellow , and very dangerous when under the
Influence of liquor. The citizens of Wcnona
emphatically express themselves to the
effect that had not Hurkhart committed sui
cide , they would have Ivnchcd him. Sheriff
Morrisoy , of Ottawa , with three deputies ,
arrived on the scene ut noon , apprehensive-
difficulty of this kind , but the desperate
man chose death in preference to being taken
alive.
The coroner this evening obtained n state
ment from the domcstcSnrah ! Kobinson.She
said that her stepfather , Burklinrt , the mur
derer , came to the house last night , did his
fiendish work down stairs , then came to her
room , told her what ho hud done , and after
an attempt to ravish her left the house.
She lay all night , not darihg to
give ttio alarm , lest lie waylay her and
murder her. Apparently the assassin's mo
tive , aside from revenge and liquor , was to
enable his stepdaughter to como Into posses
sion of n sum of money promised her by the
old people provided she would stay with
them during their lifetime. It would scum
that the murderer had a crazy idea that ,
I. with the girl once in possession of this
money , it would be an easy matter for him
to secure it.

Ciut'Ado , Nov. 12. ( Special Telegram to
TiicHnn.l The eleventh annual convention
of the general assembly , Knights of Labor ,
will convene at Indianapolis to-morrow , and
much speculation is Indulged In among the
laboring men of Chicago us to wno will bo
the next general master workman. Some
say that Powdcrly will be his own successor ,
and that ho is willing to acxcpt the ofllcc ,
while others ttay ho would not take the posi
tion even if It were tendered him , and that
1m could not have It if ho so desired. There
is considerable opposition to Mr. Powdcrly ,
and n grc.it deal of wire pulling has been goIng -
Ing on during the last few weeks , J. P. Bu
chanan , editor of the defunct la
bor Kmpuror , It Is said , has been
traveling nrnund the country visiting the.
different delegates and doing everything in
his power to dofn.vt Powdcrly if ho should bo
In the field. It Is also said that Mr. Ucorgo
Schilling aspires to the ollleo of general
master workman of the order , and that , his
muno will bo placed before the convention
by J. ,1 , Mahoney and will be supported by
Buchanan , Barry and Curium , the delegates
representing branch No. 20J. at South Chicago
cage , the representatives of branch No. o7 ,
of Chicago , and other leaders who nro op
posed to Powdorly A vigorous contest is
expected , and it is said that Shilling's ' name
is to bo thrown into the convention like n
bomb and whooped before the Powderly fac
tion 1ms time to overcome the surprise.
Mr. Schilling was almost as reticent to-day
about the affair as ho was on Saturday , but
he has repeatedly said that ho was not in a
communicative frame of mind. Ho exclaimed :
"I don't see hnw Powdony can consistently
enter the contest. He said repeatedly at
Minneapolis that ho would not accept the
otllco nguin , but probably ho Is like some pol
iticians that always bold a string , or think
they do , und can pull it when they want to.
There Is such a diversity of opinion among
the delegates that it is hard to say what will
bo the result. "
"But eould you say who are the candidates
for Powderly's placet"
"No , sir. I said 1 was not In a communi
cative frame of mind to-day. "
"Is not your name to be presented before
the convention ? "
"What ! " exclaimed Mr. Schilling. "Who
told you that , sir ) No. sir ; my name Is not
to bo mentioned. I shall bo heard there , but
will probably bo told that I am trying to bo
treacherous to the single tax movement , as I
was so accused at Minneapolis. "
"Has not John Jnrrett been mentioned ns
a probable candidate J"
"Yes , ho has , " admitted Mr. Schilling ,
"but as he is a protectionist ho will certainly
have no show. "
Mr. Schilling appeared to bo very much
worked up over tbo report that his name was
talked of usa candidate , and declared most
emphatically that it was false. Ho begged
that such n rumor be kept out of the papers.
lNiiAX.\roiis , Nov. 12. Delegates to the
eleventh annual convention of the Knights
of Labor , which' begins to-morrow , are ar
riving hi tliis city. In many respects this
will bo one of the most important conven
tions this order has ever hud. Internal dis
sensions have developed within the past two
years , beginning with the Kichmond conven
tion , and being caused , in part , at least , by
the failure of the great southwest railroad
strilto and by the Inter failure of the stock
yards strike at Chicago. It bus been assorted
by some who know that from 800.000 mem
bers two years airo the order has dwindled to
200.0JO at the present time. Various propo
sitions looking toward a reduction of ex
penses will bo made at the mcetii'g and
action on these and on the future success or
failure of the order. General Master Work

Man's Lowest Passions Run Riot
Without the IjOAVq Hostr.ilur.
Nn\v YOUK , Nov. 12. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Bin : . ] The World has a long story of
Alaska Indians as gathered from Mrs. Veer
bees , who has just como from there , and
from missionaries there. Some of the details
are hideous. Mrs. Voorhccs says : "In all
that country there is no law. There can bo
no restraint , and the lowest animal passions
of rough miners , trappers , hunters , soldiers
and sailors rage unchecked. The Indian
woman is considered lawful spoil. Tney steal
them. If they cannot , they buy them
from their parents for a knife ,
a jug of rum or a string of beads , A lady
with.whom I talked of these horrors at Sitlm
told mo of n particularly horrible case which
had couie under her own observation , so she
could vouch for its truth in every revolting
particular. "
Mrs. Voorhccs relates a number of sad
cases that came to her knowledge and partic
ularly of an orgio she witnessed ut .luneau ,
on the Fourth of July. "No beastly orgio
ever conceived could surpass it , " says she.
"You couldn't print the story , but I wish with
all mv heart Unit the world would try to do
something for the succor of the unfortunate
creatures. The Alaskan horrors nro tnoro
dreadful than the pine woods atrocities.
They are worse than anything known in
modern times. "
Tne details will undoubtedly create a sen
sation in Washington if the allegations made-
are true.

great state of oxcltcmcn this afternoon uH | > n
the arrival of the stage-driver from the town
of Galloway , who brought news of the
brutal murders of two of our most respected
farmers , Hirnm Uotcn and William Ashley ,
who lived eighteen miles north of hero. The
bodies were found to-day In n liny-slack on
the farm of Albert Housteln , and both bore
evidence of bullet marks through the head.
The b.idlcs were also badly disfigured , hav
ing been eaten by hogs. Hoten nud Aeh-
ley were district school ofllcers and
suspected their neighbor Housteln of
pilfering minor articles from the school
house. To verify their suspicions , if poss
ible , they drove over to Houstein's house last
Friday afternoon to have nn examination.
It Is supposed nn ultercat'on ' occurred and
that Housteln shot both men ami burled
them in nn adjoining haystack , and then
deliberately gathering his family together ,
took the dead incus' team ami fled the coun

should he bo caught there is no doubt but
that the infuriated Custcr county iarmurs

to a surprise this morning on seeing a newly
made grave on the public square. It was
surmounted on cuijk sldo and on top with

Ilullets mid Hur lnr .
TniCAMAir , Neb. , Nov. 12. [ Special to Tin :
Buis.J Slnco the burglarizing of the stores
owned by Wallace & Worcester and Smith
Bros. , of this place , one night last week ,
SherilT Parker , assisted by several citizens ,
have kept up a vigilant search for thothiovcs
and the stolen property. By accident a portion
tion of the stolen goods were found con
cealed under the depot platform. After be
ing identified the goods were replaced where
they were found , and several concealed men ,
well nrmcd , were left to watch for the return
of the thieves.
The first night was unsuccessful , but
it was believed the burglars would take ad
vantage of the intense excitement attending
the republican demonstration Saturday night
und attempt to escape with the stolen prop
erty , so a close watch was kept. They did
not have long to wait. While the jollifica
tion up town was nt its height one of the
gang was seen to bring n bundle of the
stolen goods down to the lumber yard near
the depot and conceal it where it would bo
convenient to carry away on the night freight
train. The man was followed by onp of the
party while the sheriff und posse awaited the
rest of the gang. Soon another man came ,
but evidently suspected that something was
wrong and after a short p.iuso opposite
where the goods were concealed , ho moved
on and was ordered to halt by the sheriff
when the man drew a revolver and essayed
to lire but being instantly covered by the
revolvers of the sheriff and posse
ho turned and ran closely pursued
by the sheriff and his men. A regular fusilado
ensued , but without effect. The fleeing
party succeeded in reaching the adjoining
street by Smith Bros.1 store , where he was
confronted by William Wilson , one of the
sheriff's men , upon whom ho instantly fired ,
the ball taking effect in the face and passing
out of the jaw-bone. The \vould-bo assassin
then dashed down n back alley closely
pursued by the balance of the party. By
firing back at his pursuers and dodging from
building to building ho escaped to the vicinity
of a low dive , where it is presumed ho re
ceived assistance.
The citizens uro thoroughly aroused. Sev
eral arrests have been made , and it is hoped
that it will result in ridding the town of n
disreputable gang who have had things about
their own way for several months.

worthy , defaulting city treasurer of Cleve
land , who departed from town $08,000
"short" and with $ 150,000 of other people's
money In his carpet sack , has written Mayor
Habcock a letter. It was sent from Montreal
October 29 , and when the mayor received it
ho hastened to Montreal in order to have an
interview with Axworthy. He remained a
week and returned to Cleveland without
having seen his man. Late this afternoon
the mayor gave the newspapers n copy of it.
In it the chief reasons for his nets is given in
the following lancuago :
"I wont east about October 1 for the pur
pose of collecting largo sums loaned by mo
on call , from time to time , during the last
fourycars ( nt the suggestion of prominent
Cleveland parties. ) I had been receiving
the Interest regularly , but , greatly to my
surprise and horror , when 1 demanded the
principal I was answered ; 'We cannot pay
it ; in fact , it would have been impossible for
us to have done so within four months after
we had imulo the loans * etc , , etc. ' In fact ,
investigation proved such to bo the case , al
though I supposed the parties to bo worth
millions. I need not dwell on this mutter ;
In fuel , I cannot. It Is too terrible for
me to think or write about. You
will know from the position I
occupied in your community how my situa
tion muat affect mo or any other man that has
always been strictly honest to the letter ,
thus overwhelmed by circumstances which ,
when too late , he 11 nils ho cannot control.
There , wan n combination to ruin inn , and It
has succeeded , I am properly , anil de
servedly , perhaps , a sufferer and exile , "
Ho transfers to the city of Cleveland all
his property , valued at ? ! 179,700 , to make
good his shortcomings. Ho concludes his
letter by saying that if that bo not enough to
cover the city's losses ho Is willing to further
contribute to that end. Mayor Habcoek will
probably make another trip to Montreal , in
the hope of having a personal interview with
the defaulter.

INMANAVOUS , Nov. 12. The president-
elect passed the day very nuiotly at Ills resi
dence , receiving n goodly number of heigh-
bors nud some friends who called , and read *
lug letters mid eastern papers. Since the
day of election General Harrison's mall has :
steadily Increased , until It has now reached
mammoth proportion * . This morning It ro-
iiulrcd an express wagon to haul the bundles
of letters mid bags of newspapers tlmt hart
nvrrived since. Saturday. About fif
teen hundred letters and several
bags of newspapers conix | > ed to-day's ' mail.
Something like eighty telegrams were also
received to-day , mostly of n congratulatory
character , as nro also his letters. Hereto *
fore General Harrison has aimed to reply to
every letter , If only to lu'ltuowlcdge Its
receipt , but with such extraordinary Increase
ho now finds that the task will be too grunt
for him to undertake , as it would occupy hla
entire time.
In view of these circumstances General
Harrison this evening roiiuested the corres.
pondcut of the Associated Press to publicly
convoy his cordial thanks to his several
thousand friends throughout thu nation who
had telegraphed or sent by loiter their warm
expressions of congratulation nud best ,
wishes. Ao was very particular to impress
upon the correspondent that it would have
afforded him real pleasure to personally ac
knowledge the receipt of every communica
tion , and up to to-day this was his intention ,
but an inventory of over seven thousand tel
egrams and letters , with several hundred
additional letters arriving each day. has
caused him to reluctantly abandon the at
tempt to answer thorn individually , and ho
asks the press of the country to extend his
kindliest and warmest thanks to his congrat
ulatory friends.
Nothing has moro profoundly Impressed
the president-clout than the enthusiastic and
heartfelt expressions in the thousands of tolo-
grmus he has received. Nearly two thous
and of these telegrams and letters
were of such n purely personal character
that General Harrison felt it might bo indel
icate in him to permit their publication , al
though many of them are from people ot po
litical or social distinction. Besides this
class of telegrams there uro fully two thous
and from men and women In the humbler
wnllcs of life , who express their sentiments
of admiration und rejoicing in the
warmest of personal terms , which ,
while exceedingly gratifying to the general ,
and calling forth his frequent mention in
conversation , yet personal references enjoin
him from offering them to the public.
Owing to the sboof the mall to-day , Gen
eral Harrison , up to this evening , had only
read about one-third of the letlors. Among
them was one from ex-Senator Warper
Miller , warmly thanking him for his tele
gram of condolence , and stating that
it was received just in time to bo
rend at n rousing ratification meet ing at Her-
kimcr , N. Y. , and that his own defeat for the
governorship was swallowed up In the greater
victory. The distinguished candidate closes
his letter with a statement that his is not a
house of mourning , but of rejoicing over the
national victory. and ho tenders his \yarmcst
congratulations to General and Mrs. Har
rison. _
