rEPSCIAI. TELIOBJUt TO THB DISPATCH.!
"VTestoj,, "W. Va., October 2i The
grand jury of the Circuit Court to-day re
turned an indictment for arson against one
Amanda Wilmouth, a woman whose cane is
without a parallel in this sestion of the
country. For more than a year, prior to
September, the woman, in company with a
small child a girl lived in a cave in the
southern part of the county, subsisting on
roots, herbs and such vegetables as she could
steal from the surrounding farmers.
2Jo one'knew where she came from, or
who she was, and as she wat not particular
ly objectionable to anyone, no attention was
paid to her. A short time after her appear
ance in the county, incendiary fires began
to break out, a number ot farmers losing; barns,
outbuildings, haystacks, etc No one thought
of blaming the miserable woman with the
origin of the fires, but in September she was
caught in the act of setting fire to a haystack.
quo hu arreeteu, ana alter ueing conuueu m
jail for about six weeks, has been indicted as
stated. She gave the officers arresting her the
name of Amanda Wilmouth, but refused to
state where She came from, or to answer auy
questions concerning her identity. She is
about 33 years of ace, fairly good-looking and
has a cood education, judging from her con
versation. THE SADIE OLD GANG.
Farmers Are Acaln Being Kobbrd by Mem
"bera of the McClellandtown Band.
rtPECIiL TELEQBXM TO THE DISPATCH.)
TJsiostowit, October 21 The "McCIelland
town cang" of robbers are again terrorizinc
the citizens of the southeastern part of the
county. Thomas Ramsey, who hasbeen dodginc
the officers for several months, and three com
panions have built a rude cabin in a deep
ravine near the top of the mountain above
Haydentown. The cabin is said to be
on the dividing line between this State
and West Virginia. The country surrounding Is
wild and rocky, and the nidlng place is quite a
distance from any habitation or roadway.
They go around the country armed with re
peating rifles and revolvers. The farmers In
that section are afraid to go any distance from
their homes even in daylizht.
Hogs, calves, cattle, sheep, chickens, etc, are
carried off indiscriminately, and daylight rob
beries are common occurrences. At one farm
house they demanded J10, and on failing to
secure this amount they went to the stable and
cut a set of harness into small pieces. At an
other place they broke up a bugcy and threw it
into a fence corner. So completely is the
reign of terror, or at least the writer was
so informed by one of the victims, that the peo
ple am afraid to take any steps whatever to
bring the offenders to justice, although they
may see them carry off a pig or a sheep in
broad daylight, lest what little property tuey
have amassed, by years of hard labor, should
be burned, or the informant waylaid and killed.
THE NEW OIL FIELD.
West Virginia Very Mnch Excited by
Ocent Valuable Discoveries.
rsrrciAt. telegrjlsi to thi dispatch.!
Wheeling, October 21 The oil excitement
in West Virginia recalls early searches after
the fluid in the pioneer field of the upper Alle
gheny valley In Pennsylvania. Macnington, in
Northern West Virginia, and Parkersburg, in
the southwestern part of the State, appear to
be the headquarters of two fields. To both
points Pennsylvania oil operators are rushing
in great numbers. Derricks are going up like
magic, and the farmer has, for the present at
least, abandoned his peaceful pursuits, and is
reveling in dreams of repetitions of the big find
on the Widow Steek farm in Venanco countv.
Fa which made "Coal-Oil Johnny" Steele so
Property in the vicinity of Mannington is
having such a boom as neve was dreamed ot
before. LoU that could have been bought a
week ago tor 1300 or $400 are now being held at
1,000. One man, a week ago, offered to sell his
little home and the ground burronnding it lor
$700, but could not pet a bidder. This week he
refused an offer ot 1,500. Bonnses of from $25
to S300 are being offered for leases on property
adjoining the town.
Last Monday a eek ago a 23-acre piece, four
miles from town, was sold for $900. The next
day it was sold for $1,000, and sow the owner is
offered $2,500 for it.
The town is lull of strangers, everv incoming
gassenger train is crowded, and the hotels are
lied to overflowing. The Standard Oil Com
pany is represented by several advance agents,
and smaller corporations are doing their best
to secure a foothold.

SAM0AN8 SING WAR SONGS:
A Party or Them Arrive in New York, En
Route for Europe.
New Yoke, October 21 The office of Edwin
H. Low, in Broadway, near Twenty-third Btreet,
looked something like a dime museum yester
day afternoon when the Samoan warriors in
charge of R. A. Cunningham went there to se
cure their steamship tickets for Europe. There
are nine in the party. They are of medium
height, square-shonlderedand muscular. Their
names are Chief Stafu, one of the leaders in
the rescue of the American sailors at the
time ot the hurricane last March; Manogia,
Leasuasu, Mua, Letungaifo, Lealofi, the poet
of the party, who composes impromptu songs
on any occasion: Tu. Foi andTasita. The chief
and fonr of his companiors were partisans ot
Mataafa in the recent war. The other four
were followers of Tamasese. They all have In
telligent faces, their hair is long, bushy and
naturally black, but they bleach it cntil it is of
a brick color. At home their principal cloth
ing is cocoannt oil and a breech clout of tafa
cloth made from the bark of the mulberry.
They have chosen clothes more suitable to this
climate, however, wearing blankets and mocas
sins. They tattoo themselves in one solid color
below the hips, the prevailing tint being blue
The warriors yesterday seated themselves in
a row on the floor and took up a war song,
started bv the noet. to the music of two mul
berry sticks. They kept perfect time both in
their singing and in the movements of their
bodies. They left Apia last Juna and are now
on their way to Germany. Mr. Cunningham
says that they are the first Samoaus ever seen
in this country. He wished to show tbem here,
but could make no satisfactory arrangements,
although Barn am offered $260 a week for them.
Mr. Cunningham did not consider this enough,
so he sails with tbem this morning for Ger

FARMERS FOR FREE TRADE.
The Inter-State TVhent Growers' Conven
tion Srcmi to Feel Tbnt Wny.
St. Loots, October 21 The Inter-State
"Wheat Growers' Convention met again this
forenoon with Colonel N. J. Colman, the per
manent President in the chair. Robert Lind
thorn, Chicago wheat speculator, made a speech
in which he gave the speculators' side of the
wheat question. President Colman then ad
dressed the convention from a free trade stand
point, denounced the way the farmers are used
by the present administration in its protective
policy and said the only way to protect their
interest was to adopt free trade. He'assailed
elevator combines, pools, commission men and
speculators as robbers of the farmers and said
that between the-e factions the farmer was
crushed. After these speeches were applauded,
Lindthom'sbytheProtectiomsts and Colman's
by tne Free-Traders, the committee on resolu
tions presented resolutions strongly tinged
with free trade sentiments.
A very animated debate followed, which was
decidedly political in character. The free
traders greatly outnumbered the protection
ists, and the resolutions were finally adopted
by a large majority. It is said an attempt will
be made in the convention to set a price of $1
on January wheat and 95c on December wheat
and that some of the members will endeavor to
get the farmers in the association to pledge
themselves not to dispose of their crops tor

One Witness Causes a Surprise In the Collom
Minneapolis, October 24. In the Col
lom trial to-day John I. Blaisdell was again
on the stand the greater portion of the day.
The defense succeeded iu entrapping him
into a flat contradiction of bis testimony of
yesterday. Ex-County Attorney Davis was
the next witness, and his testimony created
somewhat of a sensation. He gave at some
length a dramatic and forcible statement of
the confession Collom is said to have made
when first confronted with the notes.
He said that Collom repeatedly confessed
that not one of the 60 notes out was genuine;
that when reminded by Cashier Chamber
lain that at least one was genuine, as he
had seen Blaisdell sign it, Collom conlessed
that he had destroyed the genuine and re
placed it with a forged one. It is thought
that Mr. Davis' testimony will have a tell
ing effect upon the jury.
