Something of a breeze was caused in the
Senate to-day by a resolution introduced by
. Mr. Delamater, providing for the appoint

an equitable revenue biiL Another blow

rrBOM A STAFF COEBESrOItDEKT.I
Habrisbttrc, April 26. Senator Dela
mater took the revenue bill by the horns
this morning. Recognizing the fact that in
spite of many good features, many interests
remain dissatisfied 'with the revenue mea
sure now the subject of a conference be
tween the two Houses, he to-day introduced
a resolution in the Senate for a revenue
commission which in its main object will
differ materially from any that have thus
far dealt with the subject in Pennsylvania.
The resolution, which is as follows, created
quite a breeze in the upper House:
"Whereas, It is a recognized fact that the
present system of taxation, whereby real estate
Is exempted from taxation for State 'purposes,
has worked an injustice, by exempting from lo
cal taxation large amounts of property, both
real and personal, belonging to corporations,
Whereas, There is no need of an increased
revenue for State purposes, and there is an ur
gent demand for the reduction of taxation for
local purposes, and
Whereas, There are at present no trust
worthy statistics as to the amount of real and
personal property owned by citizens of this
Commonwealth, owing to the inequality of
assessments in the various counties; therefore,
Resolved, If the House of Representatives
concur, that there be constituted a commission
to prepare a

covering both State and local taxation, and to
report the same to the next Legislature, said
commission to be composed as follows: First,
the Auditor General; second, one person to be
elected by the Association of County Commis
sioners: third, one person to represent the
manufacturing interests, to be appointed by the
Governor: fourth, one person, who has elven
special stndy to the subject of taxation, and
who may be considered an authority on the
same, to be elected by the Senate; fifth, one
person to represent the financial and mercan
tile interests, Wbe elected by the Honse; sixth,
one person who has given special study to the
subject of taxation and who may be considered
an authority on the same, to be elected by the
House; seventn, one person to represent the
agricultural interests, to be appointed by the

commission shall be provided lor by subse
Senator Gobin opposed the resolution
very strongly. He objected to the paying
of commissions upon new subjects of taxa
tion, and objected even more strongly to
what he considered an effort in the direction
of making the State collector of taxes for its
own and for local purposes. Senator Thomp
son also opposed the resolution, bnt merely
because he objected to commissions on gen
eral principles, and later he said that this
one was probably the best that had yet been
THE CEANCEES TLEASED.
The resolution pleased the granger Sena
tor from York, Mr. Brown, who saw in it
some chance for the principles of the gran
ger tax equalization bill, now buried in the
Senate Finance Committee.
Twentv-six to eight was the vote by which
the resolution passed the Senate. The
House did not divide on the question. The
viva voce vote in its favor was a heartyone,
in spite of Mr. "Wherry's objections. That
gentleman declared that 200 years of hard
work had failed to produce a state of things
such as the resolution aimed at. "It is
impossible," he declared, "to combine local
and State taxation in one. In 25 years
there have been six tax commissions, and
none of their reports have been enacted into
law. The commission of 1877 spent $10,000
and accomplished nothing. Our present
tax system is now 40 or 50 years old, and
has never been changed in its fundamental
Mr. "Wherry's opposition, however, was
of no avail. The House was with Senator
Delamater, and after the labor men had suc
ceeded in getting a labor representative pro
Tided for on the commission, it was nearly
unanimous. Mr. Caffrey, a Democrat,
moved the amendment, 'and wanted the
labor man to be chosen by the General As
sembly of the Knights of Labor. Mr. Jones,
of Allegheny, thought this would be unfair
to the other labor organizations of the State,
and the gentlemen agreed to have the labor
representative appointed by the Secretary
of Internal Affairs, who has charge of the

A BLOW AT SYNDICATE SCHOOLS,
Bnt It la Made in Such a Manner That It
Can't Harm Them.
p-ROH A STAFF COKRESPOjrPENT.l
Habrisbukg, April 26. The hill ap
pointing a commission to take charge of the
soldiers' orphans came up again in the Sen
ate to-day, and on motion of Senator Alex
ander, of Fulton, the proviso to section 5,
"that no contract shall be -made for the
care and maintenance of such soldiers' chil
dren with any institntion or home con
trolled by the Soldiers' Orphan Syndicate,"
was stricken out. Instead of it Senator
Alexander offered another proviso, which
was adopted. It is to the effect that the
commission shall not contract with the pro
prietor, principal, superintendent or man
ager of any institution who is interested
financially "in another institution for the
care of soldiers' orphans.
"While this is in words a blow at the
syndicate, it does not prevent the members
dividing the schools among themselves and
contracting individually with the commis
sion, if the latter is so minded. Senator
Alexander wanted the bill further amended
to-day, to provide for two Senators on the
commission, but Senator Gobin opposed it.
He said one of the principal objects of those
having the matter in charge was to have no
one on the commission who had been in any
manner connected with the schools.
HE HAS A LITTLE FLAX.
No other amendments were adopted, hut
Senator Bates wanted to amend section 5 to
take away from the commission the power to
contract with managers of schools and to give
them, instead, the right to rent schools and
appoint managers, teachers, etc, the rental
of the schools not to exceed 6 per cent of
Senator Sloan offered a substitute' for sec
tion 5, providing for the removal of soldiers'
orphans from the school at Chester Springs,
McAUisterville, Mount Joy and Mercer,
and the placing of them in other soldiers'
orphan schools, .homes, normal schools and
other institutions. It provided that chil
dren of 12 years and upward should be re
moved to the State Normal Schools of their
respective districts; children under the age
12 shall be transferred from the schools
mentioned to other normal schools until
they reach the age of 12, when they shall be
placed in the normal schools and the State
college. Children under the age of 12
years might, under the substitute, be placed
in the care of their parents until they
reached the age of 12 years, when they
might be disposed of as previously provided.
The parents in such cases were given by the
substitute the same compensation, etc., and
subjected to the provisions of the act.
TWO COMMITTEES COLLIDE.
The Senate Committee on Appropriations
has amended the bill appropriating 450,
000 for the maintenance of the soldiers' or
phans' schools- the next two years, at va
riance with the action of the Senate on the
commission bill. The appropriation act
had a clause in it prohibiting any portion
of the amount indicated from being used in
taking care of children at McAUisterville,
Mount Joy, Mercer and Chester Springs.
The committee was opposed to naming the
schools, but provided that no moneys of
the State should go to "soldiers' orphan
schools controlled oy any syndicate or so
called syndicate or under any contract sys
tem." The committee is opposed to the further
extension of the system which has enabled
the syndicate to make exorbitant profits at
the expense ot the proper treatment'of the
children in its schools. The committee
wants the children to receivcthe full bene
fit of the appropriation, after necessary ex
penses shall have been deducted for con
ducting the schools of which they are in
mates. The bill, as it passed the second
reading in the Senate to-day, does not har
monize with the action of the appropriation
committee, and one or the other will have to
be changed to insure legislative consistency.
Senator Bates believes that his amendment,
which contemplates the abolition of the con
tract system, will finally be incorporated in
the commission bill.

New Britain, Conn., April 28.
Charles E. "Woodruff, formerly -Secretary of
the Young Men's Republican Club, and
City Clerk, has confessed that he
has uttered forged papers, to the
extent of $40,000. His victims are
the First, National and the Mechanics
Banks, of this city, the three leading banks
of Middletown, and banks in New Haven
and Meriden. Just how much each of these
banks will lose is unknown. The
banks here are out about $10,000.
"Woodruff has practiced forgery for
nearly six years, according to his own con
fession, during which time he has forged
notes to the extent of $500,000. Of this
amount he has managed, without being dis
covered, to make good all but the sum above
The other day "Woodruff forged the in
dorsement of F. "Woodruff, of Berlin, to a
note for $500. The bank questioned its gen
uineness on the ground that Mr. F. Wood
ruff was in California and had been there
all winter. "Woodruft promised to make
good the amount to the bank, but failed
to do so. He was then confronted
with the other forgeries, and under great
pressure was made to confess his guilt.
Among the names the forger has used are
those of leading business men of this and
neighboring cities. Woodruff was arrested
and brought into the Police Court to-day,
and was-held'under $12,000 bail for trial.
He went to jail.
Firebngs Destroy n Convent and 34 Sleeping
Children Knrrowly Escape.
Little Falls, Minn., April 26. Soon
after 12 o'clock last night one of the Sisters
in the Belle Prairie Convent was awakened
by smoke. She discovered that the south
portion of the convent was ablaze. The in
mates of the building were immediately
aroused and with difficulty all were saved.
The sisters in the convent, four in number,
have been conducting a children's school for
several years, and there were 24 of the little
ones asleep in the building at the time the
fire broke out. When the fire was dis
covered it was too late to stop it
and there was barely time to awaken the
children and get them out of the building.
In some cases the fire had reached the sleep
ing rooms before the occupants were awake.
None of the clothing of the children was
saved, and the people from this city have
been contributing to-day to their relief.
The building and, contents, which were
completely destroyed", were valued at over
$20,000, and there was only $2,000 insur
ance. The fire started in the southeast cor
ner near the chapel. The occupants of the
house say there bad been no fire in that part
of the building for months, from which it
appears that it must have been the work.of
TWO STEAMSHIPS COLLIDE.
A Misunderstanding ot Signals and Lights
Caused the Trouble.
Portland, Ore., April 26. A collision
occurred last night in the Willanietic river,
a few miles below Portland, between the
British steamship Danube and the Ameri
can steamship Alliance. The Danube was
bound for this city from Victoria and the
Alliance was bound down the river. The
Danube struck the Alliance on the star--board
bow, cutting a fearful gash, ripping
the hull below the water line. The Alliance
began rapidly sinking, but quickly beached.
All the passengers from the Alliance were
safely transferred to the steamer Lurline,
which fortunately happened to be near.
The damage to the Alliance is not heavy.
The vessel is valued at $40,000, and is in
sured for $20,000. Most of her cargo will
prove a total loss. The Alliance now lies
in an easy position. The steamer will be
raised and repaired. The damage to the
Danube is light. Both vessels were back
ing hard when the collision occurred, or the
consequence would have been most disas
trous. A misunderstanding of signals and
lights Was the cause of .the collison.

rEFECIJU. TELEGRAM TO TBI DISPATCH. 1
San Feancisco, April 26. The long
expected prize fight between Peter Jackson,
the colored heavy-weight champion of Aus
tralia and the Pacific coast, and Patsey Car
diff, of Minneapolis,, drew large crowds to
the California Athletic Club rooms to-night.
The fight was graced by the presence of two
classes of English nobility in the persons of
Lord Lonsdale, the Arctic hero, and the
Earl of Chester. The fight was for a purse
of $3,000, $500 to go to the loser.
The many game battles that have been
fought in the rooms of this club have always
aroused the interest of the lovers of the
fistic art, but probably no event of the kind
has created such a general interest in this
city since the battle between Jackson and
the Pacific coast champion, Joe Mc
Auliffe, last December. The rooms of the
club at an early hour were crowded to the
utmost capacity. Jackson's reputation was
made on this coast when he defeated Mc
Auliffe, and although Cardiff and the
doughty Australian were apparently more
evenly matched than were McAuliue and
Jackson, betting had been brisk during the
week, with odds generally 2 to 1 in the lat
THE -WHITE PUG NEEVOUS.
Cardiff, while not under-rating in the
least the powers of his colored antagonist,
has all along maintained his ability to give
a good account of himself, and the opening
rounds of the fight to-night were eagerly
awaited. Jackson weighed in at 200 pounds
and Cardiff at 183. Jackson was seconded
bv Sam Fitzpatrick and Jack Haines, and
Cardiff by John Donaldson and Tommy
Warren. Hiram Cook was referree.
At 9. P. ai. the event of the evening was
announced. Jackson was the first to enter
the ring at 9:15, dressed in white tights with
light blue socks. He was soon followed by
Cardiff, in blue tights. They were greeted
with tremendous applause. Both men ap
peared to be in prime, condition, Jack
bon's supple form contrasting' with the
broad chest and robust build ot the Minne
apolis man. The latter had undergone a
vigorous course of training, and his fiesh
seemed firm and white as alabaster. Jack
son is about three inches taller than his
adversary, but his lithe orm makes him ap
pear somewhat taller. His reach is longer
than Cardiff's, and he is somewhat cooler
in his movements. The spectators enter
tained a favorable opinion of Cardiff's
strength and endurance, aud as the men
performed the customary hand-shake, the
room rang with applause. Cardiff appeared
a least trifle nervous. Jackson wore a stolid
air, and kept his eye on the reieree. Time
was called at 9:30.
THE BATTLE BEGINS.
The men sparred cautiously for an opening.
J ackson led for the belt with his right Cardiff
dropped back. Quick interchange blows and
clinching followed. Jackson fell back against
the rope. A clinch followed and Jackson got
in two on Cardiff's ear. Cardiff stood well
back when Jackson ledWCardlff seized him by
tho neck and fqrcedjhlm against the ropes.
Cries of "FoulCjarose, but were not heeded.
Cardiff held on until the men were parted by
the referee. Cries kept up, "Cardiff Is afoul
fighter! Jackson will do him up!" etc.
Second round Cardiff rushed Jackson and a
clinch followed. Jackson slipped away and
gave him his left. The men clinched, but
broke without a blow. Cardiff led and Jack
Eon cross-countered, and the Australian fell
back. Clinch followed clinch, and each got
several good blows. Jackson got in two good
ones on the nose and the round ended.
Third round Cardiff came up confident.
Jackson was savage and hit him a terrific blow
on th9 ribs. Cardiff responded with a sounder
on the cheek. Close in fighting followed, Car
diff forcing the Australian against the ropes
and got one in the wind. Cardiff called forth
many admiring shouts by his quickness, heavi
ness of blows and easy manner in which he
stepped under Jackon's terrible left
Fourth round Cardiff came up cool, but
seemed less, fresh than Jackson, though both
men were puffing. Jackson led with his left,
and Cardiff tapped him lightly. A fierce rush
was then made by the negro, who cot in a ter
rific blow on Cardiff's nose. Cardiff returned
with several In the ribs that made the room
sound. The round closed with the men about
on a par. But Cardiff had apparently got in
SOME NEAT BAPS.
Fifth round Jackson caught Cardiff's right
hand in his mouth followed by one on the nose.
Cardiff pushed him over the ropes,and another
cry of foul arose. They were now fighting in
Cardiff's corner. Jackson got in two on Car
diff's left ear, and the ro.und closed with some
neat raps by both men.
Sixth round Jackson got in an easy one on
Cardiff's face when Cardiff seized him by the
leg. The men followed each other around the
ring, doing but little till they clinched, when
each got in on the rib of the other. Jackson
led for the cheek and Cardiff fell on his hands.
Cardiff looked tired, and the Australian hit
him in the face to wake him him up. In-fighting
Seventh round Jackson led with one on
Cardiff's nose. Cardiff played for his wind,
and the men broke away. Jackson got in sev
eral right-handers on Cardiff's ear, the latter
failing to duck in time. Jackson polished Car
diff's nose with his fist in great style, ln-flght-ing
followed, and the colored champion tried
to get in an upper-cut, but his opponent was
too nimble. -
Eighth round Jackson, led as usual, and got
In two on the cheek, followed by one in the
ribs; while Cardiff scored a right-hander on the
ribs. Jackson got in his customary left hander
on Cardiff's nose, and the men sparred cauti
ously. Jackson then knocked him down, and
Cardiff caught him by the hip, forcing him
against the ropes. Jackson fought savagelv
right and left, and Cardiff walked over to the
ropes, not defending himself. Jackson struck
him on the jaw as the gong sounded, and a cry
of foul arose, but was not allowed.
THE CLOSING BOUNDS.
Ninth round Jackson started into do his
man up. Cardiff seemed weak and groggy,
while Jackson was as fresh as ever, and in
clined to be savage. He chased his man aronnd
the ring, apparently trying to .get in a knock
out blow. Cardiff allowed him to play with his
head, merely tapping him feebly. Jackson
pushed him to the ropes, striking him fiercely
on the cheek and neck with his right while
Cardiff stood apparently ready to fall.
Tenth round Cardiff was groggy when he
clinched, and Jackson gave him a right and
left on the ribs. Cardiff tried hard to gather
himself, and put up his bands feebly. Jackson
again got him in his corner against the ropes,
and standing over him strnck him blow
after blow, which Cardiff took, merely
throwing his head to the right It was
evident that he was finished and
spectators urged Jackson to knock him out.
Cardiff staggered to his chair and Jackson told
him to give it up. The Minneapolis man nod
ded feebly assent and about three seconds be
fore the gong sounded Jackson walked to his
corner the winner.
It was evident that Cardiff, though a
clever boxer and hard hitter, had no show
atrainst the Australian, whose length of
reach and coolness undoubtedly won him
the fight. The hardest blows must also bo,
placed to his credit, and Cardiff's efforts in
the main were confined to guard and cross
counter. The disappointment of the spec
tators, who confidently looked for at least
20 rounds, was great

been changed to other quarters. At first it
was intended to locate the gymnasium in
one of the unoccupied rooms on the top floor
of City Hall, but there were several ob
jections raised against this, aud a location
was finally found at No. 3 engine house on
Seventh avenue. For several days past
workmen have'been busily engaged in fix
ing up the large room on the third floor of
that building for a drillroom and gym
nasium, and in a short time it will be sup
plied with all the necessary paraphernalia
lor a first-class gymnastic organization.
Tom Sterck, who has been training the
police in gymnastics and the art of self de
fense for the past nine months, said last
night that in the police force of the city
there were at least 60 men who were superior,
in point of skill, to any of the professional
pugilists in the two cities. Some of themen,
he said, were unusually quick and skillful
in the use of the gloves, and others were
well advanced in the other branches of gym
nastics. He has been giying his attention
lately to the East End and Southside dis
tricts exclusively, and says that each dis
trict has several exceedingly clever men.
Taking the force as a whole, he says they
are superior to that of any city in the coun
try. PatFarrell, who is now a regular
member of the force, was never in ar good
condition as now, and Sterck thinks Farrell
is one of the best boxers in the country.
THE PRODUCERS AHEAD.
They Have Successfully Blocked the Stand
nrd In the Limn Field.
Mr. John F. Kiday, manager of the Oil
find Paint Reporter, was at the Duquesne
Mr. Biday says that the independent pro
ducers etill'hofd the key to the situation in
the Lima oil field. The producers have
known for a long time as well as the Stand
ard that the oil could be refined, and they
have been chary about selling.
The Peerless and Eagle Oil Companies, of
Cleveland, own 20,000 acres in fee simple in
the Lima oil field, and recently they secured
a lease on 3,000 acres. They are not slowto
lease theJand where they can't buy it Mr.
Biday reports that these companies are pre
paring to sink a number of wells this
summer. They have their own pipe line
and tank cars. Both companies are opposed
to the Standard and their methods.
Mr. Kiday say3 further that the Lima oil
makes an excellent illuminant, and a better
paraffine oil than the Pennsylvania fluid.
It has more body. Mr. Biday adds, it is a
great mistake for anyone to think that the
Standard controls the Lima field. So far
the independent producers are ahead.

A COMPOSITOR'S ERROR.
He Gets a Very Lean Take of Copy Off of tho
Thomas J. Shdber was a printer working
in Pittsburg a few years ago, says the Cin
cinnati .Engurer of yesterday. Clara D.
Shober was then, so to speak, on the hook,
holding the matrimonial market reports.
When he went to that hook for copy she was
the "take" he got. He seems to have found
that instead of being a fat "take" she
was a verv lean one. At all events, shortly
after he had set her up in his nuptial
"stick" he "dumped" her on the cold world
"galley," to be taken "proof alone and un
caredfor. He did riot call for the "dup"
and paste it on his "string" to be "meas
ured" by the domestic "rule." In other
words, he sent her to this city, promising to
come here and get work. He failed ti do
so. She sued him for divorce. Judge
Evans heard the case and has it under ad

Yesterday was a great day for the old sol

Washington, April 26. Assistant Sec
retary Bussey to-day rendered a number of
pension decisions, of which fonr are of gen
eral importance- In the case of William
Evans, late of Company H, Fifty-fourth
Ohio Volunteers, the former action of the
Commissioner of Pensions is reversed, and
claimant allowed a pension. It appears
from the testimony in the case that one of
Evans' comrades, while playing, threw a
piece of iron which struck him on the leg,
causing a compound fracture which has re
mained a running sore ever since. The
former action was taken on the ground that

In the case of William Jones, late of Com

tion was taken. Jones, while in Camp
Chase, Ohio, in 18G5,.was precipitated over
a balustrade by some comrades who were
scuffling, receiving an injury which resulted
in scrotal hernia.
Alexander Mank, late of Company K,
Twenty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteers,
was similarly injured by a comrade jump
ing upon his back. Mank is granted a pen
sion. In the case of John "W. Jones, late of
Company A, Fifth West Virginia Volun
teers, the evidence shows that claimant had
his leg broken above the ankle by a soldier
coming up behind him and throwing his
whole weight upon his leg, crushing the
bone. About six months later, he acci
dentally fell while carrying a pail "of water
from a stream, and broke his leg again.
Theclaim was rejected by the'Pension Office
on the ground that the first injury was not
received in line of duty, and that the sec

IDAHO RAPPING I0UDLT.
She Wants to Join tho Sisterhood of States
Washington, April 26. Delegate
Fred T. Dubois believes that Idaho Terri
tory, which he represents in Congress, will
be admitted as a State during the coming
session. Mr. Dubois says that the leading
citizens of the Territory united some time
ago in calling npon the Governor to issue a
proclamation for a Constitutional Conven
tion, to be held at Boise City on the 4th day
of July. The Governor has issued the
proclamation, and the people enthusiastic
ally responded. The separate counties have
ordered elections to be held in June for
members of the convention. So great is the
desire fur Statehood that in counties which
are nearly evenly divided politically, only
one ticket will be presented, embracing an
even number of Democrats and Bepub
licans. After the constitution is framed it will be
submitted to the people in November, and
at the same time a full State ticket, a mem
ber of Congress and members of the Legis
lature to elect two United States Senators,
will be selected. As soon as Congress ac
cepts the constitution the State officers will
take charge, the Legislature will convene
and elect Senators and the member of Con
gress take his seat.

A REWARD FOR KING MATAAFA.
Some Sort of a Souvenir to Be Presented to
Him by the United States.
Washington, April 26. Officials of
theState and Navy Departments are con
sidering what can be done in the matter of
suitably rewarding the Samoan King, Ma
taafa, for his timely efforts to rescue the
American sailors 'and property wrecked at
Samoa. Admiral KimOerly's report con
tained a strong recommendation npon this
point, which cannot be neglected.
It is probable that a Congressional war
rant must be had for the bestowal of any
suitable reward, but the Navy Department
may be able, meanwhile, to give the King a
token of its appreciation in the shape of
boats or some of the property now stowed at

Tho New Government Building U Only a
Trifle Ont of a Level To be Ready for
the Roof by Next Autumn.
It was rumored yesterday afternoon that
the work.on the new Government building
had been suspended because Mr. Malone,
the newly-appointed Superintendent, had
found the building was box of plumb.
A Dispatch reporter, who called at the
residence of Mr. Malone last night asking
that gentleman for a verification of the re
port, obtained he following information
from him on the subject:
"The building is not out of plumb at all.
Whoever got that report abroad was wrongly
informed. What I have to say in regard to
the present condition of the building is
simply this: The upper cornice course ot the
building is somewhat out of level; in fact to
the extent of X inches.
'The workmen did not stop operations
on account of that, though. We received
10,000 cubic feet of new granite yesterday,
and as it takes a number of men to unload
it, I put all the men on that work. It will
take about two weeks to unload that mater
ial in the yard. I have reported the fact of
the building being out of level to the de
partment at Washington, and I dare say
everything will be ready within the two
weeks it takes the men to unload the stone.
So, in reality, the work will not be stopped
on the building at all.
"Now as regards the work on the build
ing, I would like to say that there will not
be adelay at all. The work will be pushed
as vigorously as possible. You must not
forget that there is qnite as much work to
be done on the building before it is finished
as has been done already. But I propose,
and I think I am able to promise, that the
building shall be ready for the roof by next
SHE INTENDED TO SHOOT. .
A Plucky Woman In the .Eighteenth Ward
An attempted robbery was made at the
house of Mrs. Latimore, situated on the
Butler street extension, near Sharpsburg,
early yesterday morning. On Thursday
midnight Frank Wicham went to Byrne &
McCabe's livery stable, at the corner of
Thirty-fifth and Butler streets, to seenre
Mr. E. A. McCabe's services for a funeral.
To make arrangements Mr. McCabe set out
in a buggy with Mr. Wicham for Sharps
burg, at which place the funeral was to be
held. On passing a house on the Butler
street extension a window was thrown up
and loud screams attracted the attention of
the ocenpants of the buggy, who got ont and
ran to the house.
Two very large men were seen to run from
tho porch at the approach of Messrs. Mc
Cabe and Wicham. The door of the honse
was then opened and a revolver given to
Mr. Wicham by Miss May Latimore, who
told him to pursue the men, as they were
robbers. Chase was given to the burglars
and five shots fired, A slight scream was
uttered by one of the supposed thieves, but
owing to the darkness the men effected their
escape. It is thought, however, that one
Mrs. Latimore and her daughter reside in
the house alone. The daughter posted her
self at the door and resolved to shoot the
first person who entered, knowing that the
men were prying at the door. The approach
of Messrs. McCabe and Wicham, however,
gave the solution to what action the women

and interviewed. He is Captain Dudley,'
of Manchester, N. H. He denies the story
that General Pryor displayed cowardice
wnen captured, and tells exactly how he
came to capture such a noteworthy character
as General Pryor.
israelii. TZLIOBAM TO IBZ DISPlTCa.1
Manchester N. H., April 26. The
true story of the capture of General Boger
A. Pryor, the ex-Confederate officer who Is
so bitterly assailed by the Southern press
on account of a recent speech, is made pub'
lie to-day for the first time by his captor ia
order to refute the charges of cowardice
which are made against the ex-rebel. The
officer who effected his capture is Captain,
H. O. Dudley, of this city. To-day Gen
eral Pryor's son, Boger A. Pryor, Jr.r came
to Manchester for the purpose of clearing
his father's name from disgrace.
The story of the capture of General
Pryor, as told by Captain Dudley, is
prefaced by the following explanation of
the circumstances which led to the capture:
In November, 1864, a Captain Burridge, of
the Thirty-sixth Massachusetts Begimeqt,
had been captured by two Confederate offi
cers while between the lines engaged in a
sort of contraband trade which was going
on between the picket lines of the opposing
armies, by which newspapers were ex
changed for tobacco, etc., and each side
thus became informed of the other's move
ments. Captain Burridge had gone oat
alone to meet two Confederate officers, and j
they had walked him into their lines, one
on each side of him. This capture incensed
General Meade, who ordered Captain Bur
ridge dismissed from the army,. but he was
reinstated the next day by General Grant.
The capture of Burridge was considered
by the Ninth Corps as a reflection on them,
and General Parke was eager lor retalia
tion. General Grant told him that he had
his (Grant's) permission to capture a rebel
officer as an onset, and if any officer should
capture a rebel officer of high rank, single
handed, in retaliation for that of Burridge,
such officer should be considered in the line,
of duty, and if killed or wounded, he or his
family should be pensioned accordingly.
General Parke immediately notified his
officers of the order. -
At this point the story of Captain Dudley,
begins: "About the 27th of November, 1864,
I was in command ot the brigade picket
line. My advance picket was on a knoll
in an angle of the line, and commanded
considerable of a distance. I had just been
to dinner when I was told that a rebel
officer wished to communicate with us. X.
selected ten men, the best marksmen and
coolest soldiers of the regiment, who were
sent forward to the advance post with orders
to keep us in view and to fire in rotation,
commencing with No. 1, if I raised a hand
or got into a quarrel, to fire at the rebel, and
kill him if they could. General Pryor had
been standing in front of the rebel picket for
halt an hour, trying to eflect an exchange of

'No, sir. I came here to make you a pris
oner, in retaliation for the capture of Cap
tain Burridge, captured within 100 rods of
hereten days ago.' He replied: 'I had. -nothing
to do with Captain Burridge's cap
ture.' I told him that was nothing to me,
I should capture him in retaliation. His
answer was: 'By 1 can't see it.' Be
fore the words were out of his mouth a six
inch Smith & Wesson six-shooter was pressed
against his shirt bosom, he wearing a low
cut vest. I told him he should surrender
there, or I would leave him with a bullet
hole through his body, and I would take,
my chances of making my line. He raised
his left hand, saying: 'Under the circum
stances, I am compelled to surrender to you.
You have the drop on me.'
"As I faced toward my line. I threw a large
circular which he wore partially over my
body, with my left elbow, saying: A word

post, immediately in front of where we
Btood. The post was occupied by Captain
Hussey, of the Thirty-second Maine, and
the men referred to. As we stepped .into
the post, General Pryor drew his revolver
from under his circular) with his left hand,
cocked it, and made a pass to shoot, when
the revolver was knocked from his hand by
Captain Hussey. Alter searching him for
further arms and taking his name, I imme
diately took him to General S. G. Griffin,
Brigade Commander, aud resumed myposi
tion in command of the picket line. With
in one hour General B. E. Potter sent his
marshal to me, to present his compliments
and congratulate me on the greatest achieve
ment ever accomplished by an officer of the

from General Pryor."
