r ILL THE NEWS FROM JfEAE-BI TOWlfS
rSPECtALTELEGKAMTO THE DISPATCH.1
TJsiosiowjt, March 22. At intervals
from 7 o'clock to midnight last night men
on horseback, mostly alone, occasionally in
pairs, 'were seen to leave TJniontown, ap
pearing at random from all directions, bat
all galloping away toward the mountains.
Few who saw them snspected that this was
a party of vigilantes, organized secretly,
and which has been the only organized ex
pedition yet made to capture the JlcClel
landtown robbers. 'There were ten from
TJniontown and five from the vicinity of
the latest outrages of the band, among them
two of the victims from McClellandtown.
They were to have been joined by 25 or 30
picked men along the road and from the vicin
ity of the outlaws' camp, near Markleysburg,
where the people are greatly excited and will
ing to aid in removing the bad gang from
among them. Tney appointed a meeting place
near the point of assault, and were to assem
ble quietly after midnight, and no attack was
to have been made until after daybreak this
morning. The gang had been under surveil
ance, and they were known to be still en
sconced in the Hill house yesterday, and the
movements of the posse were made as quietly
as possible, to avoid letting the band know of
the intended assault.
TO BE SHOT OK STARVED.
The party were all well armed with revolvers,
and the delegation from hero had 12 Winches
ter rifles. The mountaineers all kept them
selves well supplied with firearms and the whole
party made a body of considerable strength.
Should an assault fail to surprise the inmates
and capture them, the party proposed to sur
round the house and starve the gane out,
shooting anyone who made his appearance
To-night word was received here that the
vigilantes had tried to force an entrance into
the log house m which the robbers are at bay,
during which shots were exchanged on both
sides without injuring anyone. The robbers
.refuse to surrender and are prepared to sell
their lives as dearly as possible, and to die if
they cannot escape under cover of darkness.
Nine men and three women constitute the
party in the house, among whom Lewis, Sulli
van and Ramsey were recognized.
BROUGHT TO BAT.
The attacking party have the house all sur
rounded, and aro watched at a safe distance by
about 100 wondering mountaineers, who have
no arms. All the armed men in the neighbor
hood have joined the posse. The outlaws have
an abundance of ammunition, four Winchester
rifles and 16 revolvers, and are not afraid to
use them. The attacking party are proffered a
cannon, which is in the vjcinity, with which to
batter down the house, bat hesitate as yet to
use it until they can ascertain if they can do so
The principal reason for the messenger's trip
was for information on this point. The intelli
gence that the band was corraled spread like
wildfire here, and soon Sheriff Miller had
started for the scene of the difficulty with a
large posse raised here. The vicinity ot the
robbers' den is ablazo with excitement, men
hurrying there from all parts of the mountains,
and, with a good leader, they expect to finally
land the band in jail.
DENIES THE STORY.

town several times and no one ever disputed
his eligibility. A short time previous to the
spring election this year, ho heard that some
persons were going to challenge his vote on the
pound that his father had never been natural

Mr. Hill's father being dead, and he having
no proof at hand, refrained from goinr to the
polls, and to avoid trouble concluded to get
naturalized. He was a soldier during the late
war and served out his full term of enlistment.

(SPECIAL TXXEOEAM TO THE DISPATCH.'
Zanesvii.i,e, March 22. Particulars of a
daring attempt at robbery have reached this
city. As David Dutro. a wealthy farmer, and
his wife, residing about eight miles south ot
this city, were about to retire, a rap was heard
at the door. Mr. Dutro opened the door,
and as he did so a revolver- was
thrust into his face with the demand
"Your money or your life." Mr. Dutro,
although 60 years of age, sprang at the stran
ger, who was masked, ana a desperate struggle,
ensued. Mrs. Dutro slipped out during the
light to arouse the neighbors and It is supposed
that her absence on this errand alarmed the
robber, for he ran away.
Mr. Dutro fastened the house and went to
search for his wife. He did not nndlier and
roused the neighbors. A posse was made' up
and the search continued till morning, when
she was found lying at the foot of a precipice 20

On MONDAY, March 25. The peculiar
construction of this article, by which the
food jar is completely inclosed within the
boiler or steamer, secures the greatest speed
and economy ever attained in cooking by
It can be done in the "Continental" in
little more than half the time required in
the single top cookers, as the food jar is
completely enveloped in steam; and when
this condenses between the two covers, the
water runs back throutrh the cerforations
of the shoulder 'on which the-jar rests and
replenishes the supply in the boiler.
The food is simmered or stowed in such a
way as to retain all its nutriment and deli
cate flavors. Fruit cooked in this way is
not discolored, nor broken, as it is never
necessary to stir it; but it comes out whole,
and with its choice and natural food prop

As by the city's stores there passed
A youth who carried in his hand
A business card Thereon the brand
In windows bright he saw the glow
Of countless treasures set for show,
Within, the shoppersriced and bought
But in his mind abode one thought
A Furnisher cried "turn and see
My show of haberdasherie.
Who'sstock with this can e'er compete?"
The youth replied far down the street
"Try not to pass," a clothier cried,
'The lowest prices are just inside."
The youth replied, '-'It may be so
But just the same I'll always go
"Beware of cheap machine made shoes
Give industry and skill its dues."
This was the cobbler's last suggest.
The youth replied; "They keep the best-
His brow was stern, his eye so keen
Was blue, without a shade of green;
His mind was clear, his judgment sound;.
He'd looked for "business" and he found
Toward eventide, as down the street
A pious "copper" paced his beat,
He saw this youth in raiment grand;
That card still in his well-gloved hand-
His stylish hat, his shapely suit,
His natty cane and faultless boot;
His snowy shirt and tasteful tie,
Had every one been sold him by
That "copper" stood amazed to see
Such wondrous styles and dignity.
"Who made this dude?" he loudly cried.
And, proudly gay, our youth replied
The People's Favorite Clothiers
- Hatters, Furnishers
and Shoe Dealers,
