The Farmers Are in Constant Dread
of tlie Bold Outlaw Gang, Who
" DEFY AIL ATTEMPTS AT CAPTURE.
A Father's Eescue of His Bale From the
ALL TOE KEN'S FROM XEAR-BI TOWKS
IsrHCUL TELEGRAM TO THE DISrATCII.1
Uxioxtowit, March 21. Fayette county
is awaiting. in terror the next move of the
band of outlaws who have for a year preyed
upon her rural population 'with impunity,
and the timidity of the officers in not at
tempting an arrest can only add to the bold
ness and the cruelty of the gang.
Their camp at Markleysburg has not yet
been disturbed, and, hey are safe from fear.
Bill Hill, in whose mountain home they
are entrenched, is a relative of Sullivan,
one of the gang. Hill and his wife were
away when the outlaws,took possession, and
they have been cooking for themselves, and
living on the daintiest the country will at
ford, none having the hardihood to refuse
BEADY TOE A FIGHT.
They are armed with "Winchester
rifles and revolvers, and they do not leave
the house without their arms. Their
hiding place is in a lonely spot in the
mountains, the house standing back in a
deep gully, approachable but from one di
rection, and anyone approaching the house
must be exposed to the gaze and aim of its in
mates. The little boy whom they have secured to get
provisions for them declares that there is no
wounded man in 'the house. Lewis and Sul
livan are old penitentiary birds, having served
eight years each for robbing Superlctendent
Paisley in 1861 o S3.000. as he was drivimr
through a gnlly on the road from here to the
Stewart Coke Works with money for paying
off the hands, which money they secreted
before they were captured and upon their
return from prison divided and spent.
The other two of the six who were recoc
nized, Ramsey and Tasker, are both bard cus
tomers, and anyone attempting to arrest such
a crowd, with the assurance the long respite
they have bad has given them, will surely have
a difficult and dangerous task.
A EEWARD NEEDED.
The gang are said to be constantly on the
lookout for surprises, day and night. They
need have no fears, however, as no attempt
will be made to capture them unless the reward
is greatly increased. The indignation of the
taxpayers is divided between tbe daring band
for its cruelty, and tbe County Commissioners
for their refusal to offer any reward until the
gang had gotten safely away, and then offering
S200 for their cspture.
People living witnin a radius of 15 miles from
tbe gang's headquarters are preparing a plan of
alarming tbe neighbors in case of an attack,
reasoning that the band has now grown so bold
that they will resume their operations shortly,
and the alarm continues to increase through
out the country.
BABY'S NARROW ESCAPE.
A Father Rescues Ills Child From the
BURGETTSTOWif. March 21. The house of
Frank Ferguson, near Florence, four miles
north of here, was burned to the ground this
morning, together with all the household ef
fects. Mr. Ferguson awoke abont 5 o'clock

wife and child were sleeping to be filled with

and, after hurriedly dressing, they made their
way out of the burning building. Not until
they bad reached tbe outside did they think of
the child, which bad been left in tbe hoascand
Mr. Ferguson hurried back to rescue it.
As h neared the room wherein the baby lay

the roof was tailing in. He fought his way to
the cradle and snatched the child from its bed,
and, nearly suffocated with fire and smoke, he
reached tbe outside. The" little one was un
banned. The origin of the lire is unknown.

Wheeldjo, March 2L For four months
Wheeling has been crazy on the subject of pol

a dozen localities, while almost every saloon
had facilities for accommodating the disciples
of the 1-11-M game of chance. The male popula

blowing their silver in against the game, and a
score or so of gamblers who were at the head

wheel is no longer to be heard.

The Successful Surgical Operation Per
formrd at Wooster.
"Woostms, March 2L Last December Arthur
Tawney, a- school teacher of Reedsburg, this
county, was playfully pushed off the school
steps by one of bis pupils. In falling Tawney
struck a step, and his spinal column was
fractured at the base. He suffered great pain,
and during tbe past three months resorted to
large doses of morphine for relief. His, left
leg became partially paralyzed, and his re
covery was doubtful. . ,. ,
As a last resort an operation was decided
upon, and to-day the four lower segments, or
coccyx, of bis spinal column, where the fract
ure was located, were taken out. Tbe bones
were found to be decaying. The operation,
although a dangerous one, and very rarely per
formed, was successful, and the patient is re
covering and is free from pain.
A QUESTION FOR LAWYERS.
The Knotty Point to be Decided by the Bed
Bedfobd, March 21.-William Hartley, of
this place, has brought suit against John and
E. H. Anderson, former owners of tbe famous
Bedford Mineral Springs, to recover $5,000,
which he alleges was to be paid for making sale
of the properties for the sum of 1250,000. The
contract was the sale was to be made on or be
fore August 15. 18S7, Mr. Hartley succeeded
in finding a purchaser at the figures named,
but Messrs. Andersons refused to allow the
personal properties to be lncluded,.Consequent
ly the sale was off.
Soon afterward, the present owners, a syndi
cate from Pittsburg, bought tho springs and
included the personal property. This, Mr.
Hartley claims, was an injustice, and brings
suit to recover the amount of tbe original con
tract. The best of legal talent will bo retained
by both sides.
WJLL GET THEIR MONEY, '
The Allegheny Appropriation Ordinance Is
Passed and the City Employes Will All
Allegheny Common Council held a special
meeting last evening, the object being to
approve the appropriation ordinance and
transact other business. Many of the city
employes have been without money for some
time, because they could not draw their pay
until the measure passed. There was great
difficulty in securing a quorum, and the
meeting was not called to order until nearly
9 o'clock, when 30 members answered to roll
call, 20 being absent.
Several ordinances appointing viewers on the
cbango of grades of a number of thoroughfares
Resolutions were adopted awarding the con
tract for supplying water pipe and special
castings for tbe water department to tbe Na
tional Foundry and Pipe Works, iron stop

The resolution authorizing tho construction
of boardwalks In the city was passed as it bad
been amended. Tbe words "in tbe rural dis
tricts" had been struck out and tbe words
added "when within the appropriation of the
Committee on Roads." Messrs. Bctteridge,
Ingbam. Patterson, Staving and Watson voted
against the resolution.

bids of the Allegheny Heating Company and
Charles Jutte 4 Co. for supplying respectively
gas and coal for the pumping stations was re
ceived and filed, and the action of Select Coun
cil concurred In as to sending the resolution
presented back to the committee.
Chairman Hunter presided, and smiled sev
eral times during the evening when reference
was made to the charge that be was furnished
with natural gas free of charge. He stated at
the close of tlie meeting that be paid bis gas
bills and the report was only a scheme on the
part of the friends of his opponent for the
chairmanship to defeat him. but this is impos
sible as be has pledges from enough members
to elect him.
A STEIKG OF WHITE H0ESES.
An Old Legend Revived by a Funny Adver
tisement Trouble lor the Male.
The golden haired beauties of this city,
to whom life has not been the burden it was
prior to the death of the white-horse chest
nut, had now better emigrate to some foreign
dime. For the next week a string of white
horses will be paraded through tbe streets, and
the para grapher of the city press will be en
abled to hatch out a sjock of new jokes.
Yesterday Manager T. H. Davis, of tho
Stoway" Company, which will appear at the
Bijou next week, advertised for 500 white
horses. Simultaneously with the appearance
of the spotless flecked steeds there gathered at
the stage entrance quite a number of red
headed girls. Whether they came with the
horses or not nobody knows, but Manager
Davis wanted to hire them to ride the horses
through the streets. At last accounts they are
etf 11 figuring on his magnificent offer.
JVmong the equines that were gathered yes
terday was one old mule that had been white
some time before the war. Like Jimmy Sully's
famous charger, "he was a good mool, but,
my! she was slow." His tall was gone, and,
metaphorically speaking, tbe gentle zephyr
that blew up Cecil alley from the river ca
ressed the substance on bis chin. He came
from the Southside, and one leg was shorter
tban the others. Mr. Davis promised the old
darkey that owned him that if he whitewashed
the mule with some of Barnum's white ele
phant wash he would buy tbe whole outfit
Tbe horses will be paraded through the
streets next week with advertisements sten
ciled on their sides. The Ink to be used is In
dellible, and will not come off.
