Meets With a Bather Sudden Eclipse
in the Shape of an Arrest.
Warrants Issued for Suspected Masked
Midnight Burglars.
Fbanklik, March 14. Elmer Wilson,
of Meadville, was arrested in this city to
day by Policeman Hasson, on receipt of a
telegram from that city. The charge
against "Wilson is obtaining money on false
pretense. "Wilson fell in love with pretty
ellie Kobison, of Harmonsburg. Craw
ford county, bnt owing to the scarcity of
money oa Ills part, the course of their true
love didn't run very smooth.
Finally, so it is claimed, Wilson hit upon the
happy idea of going to a friend of his father's,
.and induced him to indorse a note for 50, tell
icp; him that his (Wilson's) father wanted to
raise some money to tray a mortgage. IVilson
secured the money on the note and induced
Miss Robison to elope with him.
They were married at Meadville, and had
reached Franklin on their way to Clearfield
county when they were arrested. Wilsons as
taken back to Meadville, but bis bride is still
'at a hotel here, heartbroken over the sudden
and disgraceful end of their honeymoon.
The Musklncnra la to Hare n New liock
and Other Desirabilities.
ZAsrESYXXAE, March 14. The plans and
specifications for a new lock to be constructed
on the Muskingum river at Taylorsrille, about
ten miles below this city, have been returned
from the "War Department approved, and work
will be begun on it as soon as the season opens.
The lock gate tenders along the river have ex
perienced considerable difficulty in working the
gates on account of the mud which accumu
lates and clogs them up. A novel plan has been
conceived by Lieutenant L. H. Beach and
Colonel Merrill, of Cincinnati, to obviate this
difficulty. The water, instead of being admitted
to the lock chamber through the valves in the
gates as usual, enters the canals on the outer
sides of the locks, passes down through
cylindrical valves to a channel which passes
under the mitre sill on which the gates rest and
rises in the lock chamber.
In emptying the chamber the water passes
through the holes cut in the walls of the locks
just in front of the lower gates. The force of
the current will be such as to wash away any
sediment that may be deposited in front of the
The lock will be 180 feet long and 10 wide, and
will lock a boat through ICO ieet in length. It
is estimated that it will cost 590,000. The work
is to be done by contract, which has not been
let yet. The estimates for the year for work
on the Muskingum, amount to 160,000 in addi
tion to the above.

A Missouri Farmer's Boy Works, Plays and
Smokes While In n Trance.
St. Joseph, Mo.,March 11 One of the most
singular cases known to medical science has
come under the notice of the St Joe physi
cians, who say in all their study they have
heard of but one or two similar ones. The dis
ease is neurosis, and tho victim is the 12-year-old
son of B. F. Robertson, a well-to-do farmer,
living four miles below tho city. Three months
ago the peculiar symptoms were first noted,
when the boy fell asleep one day while
playing. Afterward it was an every
day occurrence for him to go to
sleep while standing np or lying
down. Members of the family say that when
ever he would fall asleep in this way they
would attempt to awake him, bnt it would be
of no avail, as he would generally sleep three
or four hours and wake np on his own accord. He
seems while sleeping to be in a mesmeric state
or condition, knowing evervthing that is
taking placo around and about him. When
the boy goes to bed at night, ho no sooner lies
down than he is to all appearances sound
asleep, but in a few moments afterward he will
arise from the bed and commence perambula
ting through the bonse. He does not confine
his sleep-walking to the honse. but has been
found at the barn, 300 yards away, feeding the
horses, although apparently in a sound sleep,
out of which he cannot be awakened. He is
watched, bnt allowed to awake at his own will.
The father says the boy is frequently found
fast asleep while standing on his feet During
his sleep he can go to any part of the farm and
find his playthings as be left them scattered
around while awake. One day last week he sat
down in a chair and immediately fell asleep.
In this condition he went to a enpboard, got
out a cigar which he had seen there when
awake, got a match, came back to the chair
and lit it sitting there asleep, smoking until be
had consumed the entire cigar. It did not
make him sick, although he bad never before
had a cigar in his month. The boy is in every
other way healthy as any child.

Discussing the Importance of Keep
ing on Friendly Terms With
Mr. Gibson Sketches American Interests
in Onr Sister Republic and
"Washington, March 14. While the
Senate was sitting with closed doors Mr.
Gibson's resolution was taken up for the np
pointment of a select committee of seven
Senators on the relations of the United
States with Mexico and Central America,
and Mr. Gibson spoke in support of it
inhere were any just grounds, he said,
for the formation of a like committee on re
lations with Canada, the gronnds were
surely as strong and as imperative in regard
to Mexico. Mexico was a republic, the
nearest neighbor to the "United States, and
should be made the firm friend of this coun
try. That was the primary object of his
resolution. He desired the Mexican people
to feel that the people of the United States
desired their cordial and fraternal friend
ship. It was of the utmost importance
that the people of Mexico should cease
to cherish jealousy of the people ot the
United States or those resentments natural
to them that grew out of the war by which
the United States had come into possession
of more than half of their territory. The
friendship of Mexico was needed in order to
uphold and maintain across the Isthmus of
Panama and in respect to Central America
the Monroe doctrine, and it was quite as
important to the autonomy and freedom of
Mexico that that doctrine should be main
tained by the United States in the face of
the hostile aggression of Germany, Prance
or Great Britain.
But irrespective of that, it was important
to cultivate friendly relations with the peo
ple of Mexico in order to develop America's
trade with that people. Mexico contained
an area of 742,118 square miles; extended
for several thousand miles along the south
ern border of the United States, and had a
population of nearly 10,500.000. The
value of its agricultural products
was about 150,000,000 a year,
and it was directly connected by
railroad with the United States. It seemed
to him that it was the duty of the Senate to
appoint a committee to ascertain what the
hindrances were to the develoDment of trade
between the United States and Mexico.
Why was it that France sent into Mexico
double the.value of goods that the United
States sent there? If there were
good reasons for developing trade relations
with Canada, where there was
a population of only 4,000,000, there was a
still stronger reason for developing them
with Mexico, where there was a population
of over 10,000,000. Another reason for the
appointment of the proposed committee was
the existenco of the "Free Zone," between
Mexico and the United States, in which
lone there were constant irregularities.
revenue frauds, disturbances of the public
peace, disorders and tumult
Mr. Morrill, in a satirical tone, expressed
the hope that if such committee were ap-
Eointed the chair would not forget him, as
e would like to make a trip to Mexico in a
palace car with a buffet But seriously, if
the matter were to be considered by any
committee, it should be either by the Com
mittee on Commerce or the Committee on
Finance. He hoped, therefore, that the
resolution would be referred to one of these
Mr. Piatt recognized fully the importance
of cultivating friendly relations of a com
mercial character with Mexico and the
South American States. He congratulated
the Senate and the country that an admin
istration was now being entered on which
would establish relations of positive friend
liness with all the countries in the western
hemisphere. He favored, however, the
reference of all such resolutions to an appro
priate committee, and thought it bad policy
to depart from that rule in any case. He
moved the reference of the resolution to the
committee on commerce.
Mr. Began advocated the adoption of the
resolution. The "Free Zone," he said was
a territory about ten miles wide, running
from the mouth of the Bio Grande to El
Paso, a distance of 600 or 700 miles. It had
operated to embarrass commerce in various
ways, and it was necessary to have some
steps taken to prevent smuggling into both
countries. The forays, robberies and mur
ders that were so common in that zone a few
years ago no longer existed to the same ex
tent, but commercial demoralization, grow
ing of that "Free Zone," increased with the
growth of the country. He fully agreed
with the Senator from Louisiana as to the
great importance of cultivating the most
friendly relations with Mexico.
Mr. Hoar, referring to Mr. Gibson's re
mark as to Mexico's loss oi territory as the
result of the war with the United States,
expressed the idea that the Mexican people
knew that war had not been approved by a
verv large portion of the American people;
and also that they were not forgetful of the
fact that the European invasion,
which had resulted in the establish
ment of the empire under Maximilian,
had been ended by a word from the
State Department at "Washington at the
close of the American Civil War. He did
not think that any modern nation had con
ferred on any other nation an obligation
equal to that conferred by the United States
on Mexico when the empire under Maxi
milian disappeared.
Mr. Call favored the adoption of the reso
lution and opposed the motion of reference.
He also advocated, indirectly, his own reso
lution, proposing a like select committee for
Cuba and the West India Islands. The
question of the annexation or acquisition of
the island of Cuba was, he said, present to
the mind of a large portion of the people of
the United States. He had recently
had various letters on that subject, showing
that pnblic attention was being directed to
it Ii it was important to asoertain the
commercial relations present or prospective,
between Canada and the United States, it
certainly was equally important to ascertain
them in regard to Cuba and Mexico.
Mr. Hale objected to the further consider
ation of the subject, the Senate being in ex
ecutive session; and the Senate at 12:50 took
a recess till 3 P. "M. and at 3:20 adjourned
until Monday.
