American Home Stumps the Commis
sion on the Question of Lines An
Indian Lawyer Developed
A Unit for "Warner.
The Obstinate Pine
PINT. HinaE , Juno 20 , ( via Kushvlllo } .
[ Special Telegram to TUB Bnnul This has
been the most successful council yet had
with these people , nnd nt the same tlmo the
most satisfactory , an It has developed ono of
the most talented lawyers In the tribe , a man
whoso shrewdness is a match for the ordinary
white lawyer. H also revealed the further
fact of the perfect nature of the three pa [ ts
of the commission , which are ns perfectly
fitted together for this work ns the metals In
nn electric belt. All are necessary.
This afternoon , nt the request of American
Horse , the commission mot the Indians In
council nnd conducted nn examination Into
the merits of the present bill. After American
Horse had asked some questions in relation to
the Issue of oxen Instead of horses , ns re
quested by them while In Washington re
cently , and mentioned the map which showed
the reservation colored in dark red , saying
bo had lain awake many nights thinking
about this matter , but still could not under
stand It , Major Wnrnor addressed the coun
cil firing somewhat of humor at them. Ho
nlso explained the little box-shaped piece ,
which shows on the map as land belonging
P to Nebraska , but which was included in the
reservation to prevent the white men selling
I whisky to the Indians. This brought out
the question of lines , which again and again
came up in the discussion.
When Major Warner attempted nn explanation
nation of this matter American Ilorso coolly
informed htm bo though ho knew nothing at
all nbout the matter. Ho asked General
Creole what ho know about the matter , re
ccivlng a reply that the ironcrnl know path-
ing. The general further Informed them that
ho had nsiccd the secretary of the interior to
have the line surveyed , and when the line Is
thus surveyed It will bo permanent. When
the general spoke of surveying with nn in
strument working by the stars American
Horaa said ho guessed the stnrs jumped nbout
a great deal when some lines wcro run. The
misunderstanding about the line arises from
the old agreement made at the tlmo of the
treaty of 1808 , whereby the Indians were
allowed hunting privileges south to the He-
publican river , though the reservation line
was then fixed as far north ns the Nebraska
line. This right to hunt was relinquished
later for $23,000 , ns mentioned by Hed Cloud
the other day.
American Horse spoke of the pleasures of
meeting with friends nnd referred'to ' the
adoption of Governor Foster into the tribe
by the name of "Youug-Mnn-Proud-of-IIIs-
Tail , and hoped ho would not soon desert
them. Ho also took consideration of Major
Warner , and informed him that there wcro
many line horses here and boaatiful women ,
who would bo happy to ride out with him aim
entertain him , so ho hoped they would bo in
no hurry to leave soon , but would remain
long enough to have this matter thoroughly
discussed. Ho also asked them to telegraph
to tbo great father and ask him to find some
one who know about the line of the reserva
This was explained as unnecessary , to
which American Horse said , ho was glad to
know this commission wcro honest. When
ho had asked the other commissioners to
telegraph to the great father , they hud said :
'Yes I yes I" nnd then gouo away into a room
and written out a dispatch which they
brought bacit saying : "Thoro is what the
great father says ; now do not bo afraid of
anything here , for nothing shall mar the
peace of this hour , was his assurance. "
Governor Foster also spoke to them at
length concerning thcir requests.nndpromis
ing to use his influence to have them granted
by the great father and also explained the
conditions under which they took the signa
tures of tlio squaw-men nnd half-breeds.
The council took on the nature of
a conversation , each ono speaking
briefly , American Ilorso asking questions
and making statements , quaintly Illustrated
by natures own references , and the com'
mission each taking turns answering qucs
tions , Tito most perfect harmony existed
throughout the proceedings , which only
wcro adjourned when the gathering shades
of evening made It necessary.
TiiC disposition displayed In the meeting
to know uU"a"o"CUt the matter Is n favorubis
symptom , and a breakdown is looked for
nbout Friday or Saturday ; when this comes
tbo wok will soon be completed hero.

PINE Union , ( via Uushvillo ) Juno 20 ,
[ Special Telegram to Tun BEE. ! This morn
Ing an opportunity was given these who so
desired , to sign the rolls , and a few availed
themselves of the opportunity thus offered
them , but nothing compared to the rush at
Rosebud on the second day of signing , The
tlmo Is not yet quito up , and further explanaj
tions are necessary.
It will bo remembered that at Rosebud
number of half-breeds wcro employed o g
complete explanations and analysis of the
bill nt private councils of the In
dians. Here this has been largely
lacking. With n view to this
General Crook held a council with the white
men and half-breeds , nt which means and
measures were discussed and plans laid for
officiant work among the Indians who are
now In doubt.
Red Cloud asked for n council with General -
oral Crooic , from which ho desired oven the
official stenographer bhould be excluded.
This loft the corrcsnondenta on the fen en to
looIc with longing eyes across the grcon ,
where an Immense concourse was in council
with the general. At this council Red Cloud
wcs the principal speaker. Ho persisted In
in misinterpreting the treaty of 18CS , nnd
said the government had refused to do as it
bad agreed. Ho did not want anything to
do with the commission. ' Continuing , ho
grow very angry nud impertinent , ordering
nil these who came with this commission to
Icuva the reservation , and at once , too ,
General Crook called u halt nt this juncture
nnd told Red Cloud some of the past parts of
tils history with which ho was familiar. Ho
also mentioned why ho issued the order to
seize all of the Indian ponies and leave them
afoot , because Rod Cloud would not lUtcn to
reason , but declared his Intention of going
on the warpath. The general also gava
ether Instances of the duplicity of Rod
Cloud-Jn the past transactions ho had with
Mm , ana expressed his obvious desire In this
case to obtain all the rewards.
The council broke up by n suggestion of
General Crook that these who desired should
go to the agent's ofllco and sign , and others
who were opposed should so state. This led
to n regular stampede- Red Cloud's , Big
Road's and Little Wounds' bands passing
through the agent's oflicu in single tile to the
number ot nearly four hundred , each ono do-
during hlmuojf opposed to signing.
A notable exception to the action of these
Sioux is that of tlio Choyunncs , who held n
council in the afternoon and decided to sign
in a body. Tbcso Indians lira a much
braver and moro Industrious cl.iss than the
Sioux , General Crook gives them hlph
prniso as soldiers and lighters and promises
to glvo them ull the assistance In his power
to accomplish the desire of their hearts tel
l > o united on ono icsorvntlon with their
people , who nro now , most of them , on the
Tonuuo River reservation in Montana.
At this tlmo there uro about three hun
dred unuiOb signed to the rolls , and it is
hoped a reaction will EOOU take place and
tbo work b ? done wpiilly frcia this day on.

Alton , declares the figures relative to Kan
sas City shipments of hvo stock , sent out
last night by Chairman Walkur , of the In-
tor-'stato Commerce Railway association , to
bo misleading. "Thoro is no use trying to
obscure the main question , " said ho , to-day ;
the controversy was on cattle nnd livestock
of all kinds. Hero are the correct figures
and they show our reason for withdrawing
from the association. For the week previous
to the decision of the executive board order
ing the St. Paul to take no moro than two
train loads of cattle a week from Kansas
City , that road hauled sixty-eight cars. For
tbo week following the decision , and when
it was supposed to bo in full force and effect ,
the St. Panl hauled 128 curs. Now that the
St. Paul is making a great display
of the fact that- Is carrying no cattle , cuts
no possible figure. Just bear in mind that
the St. Paul only refused cattle shipments
after the Alton \va ? out of the association.
Wo have no thanks to offer any ono for the
business wo are now doing. Our own agents
get it for us in tbo open market. AVa have
no hard feelings at all against the associa
tion. Wo are out and Intend to stay out , hut
hope the association will have a long and
prosperous existence. "

rates is docketed for consideration by the
Western Freight association for to-morrow

that a resolution will bo proposed that
through rates on northwestern business bo
advanced to the local basis. If adopted , this
will make the through rate to St Paul the
sum of the local to Chicago and from Chi
catjo to St. Paul. Many of the roads favor
this plan , as it will punish the trunk line
roads , which control central trafllo roads ,
for pro-rating with the lake lines. It is
hinted that the question may bo uostponcc
until a week from to-day. If it is , the North

The next few days promise to bo moro
than usually dull In Washington. Tomorrow
row morn Ing the president will leave for
Capo May to spend Sunday with his family.
Laior in the day several mcnibora ot the
cabinet depart for their homes or the seashore -
shore or mountains. .To-day a great many
newspaper correspondents called on Secre
tary Wlndoni nnd asked htm to say whether
there is danger in "scoops" In important
treasury appointments. Tlio secretary in
formed each ono that It would bo perfectly
safe to take a brief vacation , as It is not at
all likely that there will bo any Important
appointments during the next few days. The
correspondents thnrefora went away happy
and to-morrow morning 00 percent of all now
In the city will accept the Invitation of the
Pennsylvania railroad company to spend n
few days at Crcsson Springs in the Allo-
ghany mountains. This company makes it a
practice to invite the nowspapbr men of
Washington , Baltimore nnd Philadelphia to
accept of its hospitality , and the trips tire
extremely enjoyable. The party will start
from Washington nt 8 o'clock to-morrow
morning nnd will return on Monday evening.
There is the utmost anxiety expressed
among members of congress of both political
parties to ascertain whether or not it is the
intention of the president to call congress to
another extra session in October. No satis
factory information has thus far boon se
cured from any reliable source on this point ,
Congressman Browne , of Indiana , is ono of
the anxious ones , and bo has made up his
mind to know if the probability of such a
thing is possiblo. Consequently h'o will in
terview the president on the subject as soon
as tha latter returns from Capo May , and at
that time It is likely that some general information
mation will bo given out.
To a caller who made some Inquiries of
him , First Assistant Postmaster-General
Clarkson to-day said , in a few words , what
ought to open the eyes of his mugwumpiau
"It should bo remembered , " said ho. "that
if President Cleveland had not appointed
democrats in place of republicans there
would bo very few democrats for the present
administration to remove , in order to muko
room for the republicans now being un
pointed. There is another thing which is
not generally known , and that is that nearly
all the democratic postmasters who are now
being removed are losing their places on the
reports of inspectors upon the conduct of
their ofllces. nnd in ulmost every instance the
inspector who makes the report is a demo
crat , for the very good reason that wo have
very few republican inspectors to make
reports. "
Mr. Clarkson added that the men who are
now going out have almost invariably served
four years , and it seemed that the people ,
when they had had anything to say lately ,
had voted that four years was about the
proper time for a federal oflleial to bold
It was reported at the postoftlco depart
ment , to-day , that the action of the president
in signiner the amendment to the civil service
rules , which permits the reinstatement of ex-
uniou soldiers and sailors who have been dis
charged from the civil service , without ex
amination , will result in the reappointment
of fifteen or twenty postoftico inspectors wno
were removed during the last administra
tion. Chief Postoftlco Inspector Ruthbono
said , to-day , that the service contains at
present about ono hundred and forty demo
crats to ton republicans. It will bo remem
bered that the last administration applied
the civil service rules to this branch of the
government soon after nearly every republi
can had been turned out. The design of this
was , without doubt , to placate the mug
wumps nnd prevent the return of disehargod
republicans. The scheme was n very pretty
ono , and if it had been allowed to stand
there would have been precious few
republicans on the force of inspectors until
the present 140 democratic incumbents re
sign or die. The clmiigo in tbo rules insures
the appointment of some men at least whoso
army records are as honorable as their civil
records. It wilt result also in the appoint
ment of men who are familiar with the duties
of the positions which they will bo called
upon to perform. The change will also huvo
a decided effect in the appointment of clerks
In the railway mall service and will prob
ably remove the neccssitv for calling upon
the commission for certified lists for some
tlmo to come. It is estimated that it makes
eligible for reappointment in this service be
tween two and tlirco hundred ex-soldIcra
who were dismissed solely because they
were republicans. As the change Is dis
cussed it meets with moro and moro ap-
nroval , and it is only regretted that the ac
tion was not taken sooner.

IMcn For l-'nlr Consideration.
WASHINGTON , Juno 20.At the session of
ho national camp ot the order of Patriotic
Sons of America , to-doy , Qcorgo P. Smith ,
of Illinois , was elected president for the ensuing -
suing two years. Boston was chosen as the
next place of mooting , In October , 1800.
At the afternoon session the following was
iroparod for the press !
To the press of America ; Invtowot the
fact that the principles of this order nnd the
objects of IU existence have been Incorrectly
presented , and inasmuch as nn Incident con-
icctcd with tlio presidential reception has
jccn misrepresented , ihls national camp re
quests n fair and Impartial consideration of
our declaration of principles.
Article 1. Next to love for the Creator , wo
uollcvo patriotism is the highest nnd noblest
affection of the human soul. Wo believe the
institutions of no country are safe without
patriotism , and that none will so Jealously
'iiard nnd protect them as those who nro
born and raised under tholr influence. Wo
believe wo have the best form of govern
ment for the masses on the face of the earth.
Article 2. For the welfare , prosperity nnd
liberty of all American citizens nnd their de
scendants , wo desire to protect our form of
government , preserve It intact from the the
influence of any foreign power by discrimi
nating sentiments of loyalty and patriotism ,
nnd by establishing a fraternal feeling of de
votion to our country amongst nil Americans.
Wo hope to make It lufi > osslblo for any one to
live under the protection of the "stars nnd
stripes" who does not , honor < "and revere it ,
nnd who would not bo willing to glvo up his
Ufa In defense of the principles of freedom
and justice which it represents.
Article a. Wo desire to sustain the purity
of the ballot , and to have it intelligently nnd
legitimately used.
Article 4. Wo bollovo our system of frco
public- schools is tbo bulwark of our liberty ,
and wo insist that they bo kept absolutely
frco from all ecclesiastical and sectarian in
fluences , nnd under the influence of local
secular ofllcers elected by thn people.
Article 5.Vo cordially welcome all these
foreigners who como to tills country with
the honest desire of becoming loyal Ameri
can citizens , and who sincerely disavow nny
and all allegiance to foreign potentates and
governments , and who honor and revere our
national flag.
Article 0. Wo arc opposed to the occu
pancy of nny part of our land by foreign
speculators who do not wish to become cit
izens , and wo bollovo all resources and priv
ileges of this country should bo reserved for
the exclusive use of its citizens , either native
or naturalized.
Article 7. Wo are in favor of crushing out
those which are already hero , and of taking
measures which will prohibit from entrance
Into our parts in the future1 of that foreign
clement which comes licrq to advocate com
munism nnd nihilism ; and which does not
identify itself with our country , and does not
respect our flag.
Article 8. Wo invite allnatlvoborn citizens
who believe in their countVy and its institu
tions , and who desire to nerpotuato free gov
ernment , nnd who wish to' encourage proper
feeling among Americans"to the end that wo
may exalt our country , to join with us in
this , our work of fellowship and love. Wo
call the especial attention of these reporters
who have styled us ns "Jfribw nothings" nnd
"anti-Catholics , " to article 5 , and quote from
our official expose , "Wo have no quarrel with
nny man on account of satlonulity or relig
ion , but wo wish to 'ni orfl equa" " justice to
all American citi/ens. "
The article from th t'address of our na
tional president , so eatchsively-quoted , re
quires no apology , and this order in national
convention assembled unhesitatingly declares
there is no room In this' republican govern
ment for nny organization , under , whatsoever
name , which advocates nnd practices murder
and assassination , nnd wo believe every in
telligent citizen , native or foreign born , who'
has read the evidence presented to the core
ner's jury , of Chicago , relative to thoCronln
murder , lias felt this to bo true and that their
existence Is a constant menace to our gov
ernment. The badge Incident , so sensation
ally characterized ns n "Burchardism , " is a
misrepresentation. The reception , by the
prcsiednt , was cordial and gratifying to the
members of this order.
Many Mon QuitVorlc and a Riot is
JOHNSTOWN , Pa. , Juno CO. The strike
among the laboring men here Is fairly on ,
and this morning there nro not a thousand
men nil told at work. Those employed by
McKnight , the Plttsburg contractor , are
idle and dissatisfied , and tbo discord Is
spreading to the other workmen. Overbear
ing bosses and short rations , for which the
men nro made to pay liberally , are the griev
ances. The military nro on active duty this
morning , and the local company of the Fifth
regiment has been ordered out. While
everything appears qulot on the surface ,
there is fear that the undercurrent of dis
cord will break out at any time , and that a
riot will follow.
The committee appointed at a meeting of
the striking laborers this morning reported tea
a meeting held an hour later that all foreign
workmen had quit worlc , but at the request
of the strikers the local men continued work.
Another meeting will bo hold to-day.
Flvo bodies were recovered tills morning ,
among them being a mother and two chil
dren. The children were locked in the
mother's arms.
Sixteen bodies were found to-day nnd
many of them were immediately buried after
being completely covered with oil. The
stench is becoming daily moro sickening and.
unbearable. Tbo Women's Christian Tom-

The first clear day hero since the awful
calamity found work among the ruins
practically suspended , and upon the snmo
ground where liuvoo was so recently wrought
capital nnd labor nro wrestling in a bitter
and tbrcatnmng contest , and the qulot ,
subdued feeling which prevailed since the
flood is giving way to ono of unrest , discord
and danger , As yet tboro has been no
open outbreak , but repeated breaches
of the ocaco occurred during the day , and
to-night a frco flpht occurred In which ono
man was probably family injured. All the
idle men who can got intoxicated nro drinkIng -
Ing to-night. It has boon announced to
night that the strike , 'which began this
morning , has been declared off , and a thous
and moro men have boon paid and dis
charged , but the dlsch'nrgdd man as yet re

EI.OIX , Neb. , Juno 20. [ Special Tologrnra
to TUB Bnu.l Word was brought to town
at an early hour this morning that Nick
Poloy had shot Pomeroy Clark anil wife ,
killing Mrs. Clark Instantly anil slightly
wounding her husband. Mr. Clurlt lives
about tlirco miles north and 0110 mile onst of
this jilace , nnd when the report ronchcd hero
warrants were sworn out and placed In the
hands ot the constable , who , In company
with 11 doctor , started at once forMr. Clark's. '
It scorns that Foley was in love with Miss
Enio Higgs , o slstor of Mrs. Clark ,
nnd 'tho ' young laa.v wished to
have nothing to do with bun. His
prospects In that direction wcro
not very encouraging and ho became dcs-
porato. Last night Foley wont to Clark's
residence about 13 o'cloclc , and going up
stairs shot Mr. Claik , inflicting a slight
wound in his side. Mr. Clark grappled with
him uud throw him out of the door.
Foley then procured 11 ladder and clambered
up to the chamber window. Mrs. Clark
heard him at ibo window and. sitting up in
bed , asked what was the matter. In reply
she received a bullet in the head , instantly
killing her.
Folov than flred several moro shot < * at
Clark and Miss Rlggs , who had hastened to
the scene , but without any ollect.
TUB UCK correspondent wont to the scene
of the murder , but was uuublo to interview
Clark on account of the iloctor's positive
orders to the contrary. The coroner's Inquest
was held at 3 o'clock this afternoon , and the
evidence was as follows :
Foley , who had been staying at Clark's off
and on for several years , went to Clark's ' a
few days ago and commenced to quarrel
with Miss Rlgcs. Mrs. Clark Interfered , and
attempted to "drive him away , but , Foley
turned on her and commenced to curse her.
Mrs. Clark then called her husband , who
was at the barn , to coma and help them. Clark
came to the house and ordered Foley to leave
nnd not como back again. Foley left , swear
ing ho would kill Henry Rlges , the young
lady's father , before the week was out. Last
night one of Clark's ' children became restive ,
and about II o'clock Clark arose and
gave the child seine medicine. Ho
went to oed and fell asleep at once. How
long ho slept ho does not know , but thinks it
was only n short time. Suddenly ha felt
something strike him in the sid and ho sprag
up in bed , exclaiming : "Who is striking inol"
Mrs. Clark cried out : ' 'Some one shot
you " Clark sprang out of the bed and ran
into the adjoining room and heard some per
son down stairs in his socking feet. Clark
turned to the room and pulled the bed against
oho door to prevent the assassin's re
turn. About eighteen or twenty min
utes eluprcd when Mrs/ Clark , who
was sitting on the sldo of the bed next to a
glass door in the ned chamber , heard a noise
and said , "I hear some ono climbing UD to
the window. " She then parted the curtain
peered out , dodging back immediately , and
again peeped , when a pistol flushed in
her face and she dropped back dead , without
a word. The assassin then turned his tiring
on Miss Riggs , who was sitting in the oppo
site corner of the room , and fired four shots
at her without doing any damage. This
ended the firing , and as ono of Clark's
horses is gone , it is supposed the murderer
took it and fled.
As soon us the firing ceased Clark wont to
the window and commenced to cry
"Murdcrl" with all his might , in hopes
of arousing some of his neighbors. None
came , however , until daylight , when Henry
Duvall was passing , and hearing his cries ,
went to investigate , finding Mrs. Clark deaden
on the floor nnd Mr. Clark very badly
wounded , the bullet striking a rib on the loft
side , and passing througn the lower part of
the lung , lodged in the buck. Duvall at once
spread the alarm and posses were sent out in
all directions to hnnt for the murderer. Tel
egrams were sent all over the country.
There was nothing heard from him until
about 3 o'clock this afternoon , when
a telegram was received from
Erlckson , Wheeler county , saying that
atninn answering the description clven had
passed through there about an hour before
they received the telegram from hero. The
evidence against Foley is purely circumstan
tial , but every ono seems to fool certain that
he committed the deed , as ho had inudo nu
merous throats to kill them all.
The following is a good description of
Foley : Twenty-six years old , dark complex
ion , black oycs , deep dimple in the chin ;
shaven smooth , except a stub of a moustache ,
weight about 100 pounds ; height , 5 foot S
inches. Ho was riding a sorrel horso.
The coroner adjourned the inquest until
to-moriownt8 o'clock a. in. , when now evi
dence will bo taken.

called Intor-f > tnto garnishment , was com
menced In the county court , this afternoon ,
and is decidedly a now phase of treating n
much abused law. The case Is that of Fred
Walter vs * Patrick W. O'Connor , to recover
money obtained from him by the tarnlslico
process in Iowa. Wultor sets up that ho was
a resident of Caas county , and employed by
the Burlington railroad company. Ho bad
his wages garnlshoed by ono I ) . M. West , bo
fora a justice of the peace , in Council Bluffs ,
for glU.CO on an account alleged to have been
assigned to him by one P. W , O'Connor ' , also
a resident of Nebraska. "Tnat by the laws
of Iowa , a resident of Nebraska Is
not entitled to the exemption from
attachments and garnishment granted to
heads of families , by the laws of Nebraska ,
and that in spite of the fact that the lallroad
company made a showing before the court
that Walters was the head of a family , his
wages wcro garnished and tbo company paid
it. , Walters uow bilngs suit to recover from
O'Connor the amount of the claim and costs ,
amounting to I-37.00. This Iowa garnishment
is an old and much used tnotbod of ovuaing
the Nebraska law , exempting from aUacr.-
mcnt nnd garnishment the property of the
head of n family to n specified amount. It Is
extensively practiced by merchants , Ih splto
of the fnot that thnru Is n law expressly for
bidding the assignment of such claims to for

THE BKB. ] Lo Caron , the British spy , was
to-nlghrtrled by his comrades In Winflelil
Hancock Post , No. SCO , G. A. H. , and sum
marily dismissed from the Grand Army of
the Republic.
The charges against him were that ho wni
untvorthvof being n comrade of tlio ether
members , nnd the trial was brought about
by his testimony given in the Pnrnoll case.
Added to this is a story of peculiar interest
ns to his identification by the members of the
wst , nnd which points to the fact Unit La
Caron not only spent his tlmo in America In
ictlng as a spy against the Irish revolution
ists , but also joined the United Slates army ,
and the O. A. R. for the purpose of giving
information to the British government ,
About two years ago nn Irishman of this
city brought Lo Caron to Lieutenant of Do-
: cctivos George Hulntzmnn , nnd introduced
.ho two ; Lo Caron had joined Post COO some
.lino . before. Ilemtzmmi.wlio was major of tha
2lghty-second regiment , Illinois volunteers ,
ins great influence iu Grand Army circlca
nnd is also a member of Post 500. At the
tlmo of the Introduction , Major Heiutzmim
mid no attention to Lo Caron , and the mat-
.or passed out ot his mind. The dtiy after
Lo Caron gave his testimony in the Parnell
nqulry , the Irishman to Major Hcmtz-
man in a most excited frame of mind. Ho
asked the major if he remembered Lo Caron ,
to whom ho introduced him , The major re-
illed that ho did not. The Irishman then de
nounced Lo Caron In most vigorous terms
mil declared that If ho had known the In
former's true chat actor ho would never have
ntroducod him or have boon seen with
aim in Grand Army circles. It happened
Lhat in a room adjoining that where the con
versation took place was the Hov. Father
Dunne , of Joltet , Will Cowl and a brother of
Dr. Dunn , formerly city physician of Chi
cago. When the Irishman left the major
iskod Father Dunne what he thought of that
yarn. The latter said : "It Is true , every
word of it. Ho is the same man who baa
xmfcssed to being an English spy. Ho and
ills family are my parishioners. "
An Investigation was immediately started.
Lo Caron's papers , on which ho got into the
post , wore examined. It was found that ho
was a private in the Sixteenth Pennsylvania
Infantry during the war and rose to the rank
er lieutenant in n colored infantry icgiuient.
His history in Braidwood , Will county. 111. ,
where ho kept a drug store , WHS looked into.
[ t was found that ho simply noted as n soy
on the actions of the miners in that section , ,
who wcro members of tbo I. It. B.
Then his Chicago record was looked up , and
Lhe inference was made that his object 'Iu ,
joining the G. A , It. was to spy into the ue-
crets of that order , nnd especially to look
after the Irish members of it.
When these facts wcro learned Father
Dunne procured u photograph of Lo Caron ,
This was exhibited to all tlio members of the
post. It was immediately recognized. A.
notice of the intended proceedings was sent
to Lo C.iron , but no reply has boon recoived.
A court martial was ordered. The court.
mot to-night , and after duly considering the
ovideiico , Le Caron , alias Beach , was dis
missed in disgrace. Ho has u chauco to ap
peal to James S. Martin , department com
mander of Illinois , and if this fulls ho can

cian who attended him also cared for other

for failing to comply with the quarantine
