tEFXCIAZ. TXX.EOBAX TO THZ DISPATCH. J
St. .Paul, Miss., October 25. Truth is
once more stranger than fiction. An inci
dent that has just transpired in this city
exemplifies the fact in a most startling way.
Monday about 10 o'clock a young man ap
parently 24 years of age, while walking
along the bearers of one of the uncompleted
upper floors of the new Endicott building,
missed his footing and plunged headlong
into the basement. When picked up he
was dead, his skull being badly fractured.
The unfortunate man was a stranger to all
around the building. None could identify
him, and when the Coroner came he ordered
the body taken to the morgue. Here the
remains lay during the day, and though
many came to view them, none could
identify the dead man.
The evening papers of that day, in giving
an account of the accident, stated that the
man's same was Patrick Mahoney; that he
came from Minneapolis, and that at the
time of the accident he was seeking employ,
HOT IX CAMS 10 A HEAD.
One of these notices caught the eye of
Michael Finn, a resident of the city and a
distant relative of the young man. The
same evening, in company with Mrs. Tracy,
a first cousin of Mahoney, he visited the
morgue and there the grief-stricken people
beheld the well-known face of the one
they loved, now cold in death.
A telegram was sent to Postmaster
McCabe, at Hazelwood, with a
request that he inform the Mahoneys, who
reside there, of the unfortunate occurrence.
On Tuesday, Mahoney's half-brother (who
lives at Bosemount), hearing of the acci
dent, came here, and, when he recognized
the features of the dead man, broke into bit
ter wailing. The friends and acquaintances
of the dead man, to the number of over a
dozen, also called during the day, and satis
fied themselves as to the identity of
he deceased. There could be no question
but the man was Patrick Mahoney.
The remains were placed in a casket
Tuesday afternoon and got ready for ship
ment The same evening Mahoney's brother
Tom, accompanied by a number of friends
who had been well acquainted with the de
ceased from boyhood, arrived in the city,
having got word of the accident from Post
"When this party reached the undertaker's,
a sorrowful scene was enacted. When they
entered, tbe half brother of Patrick
Mahoney, recognizing Tom Mahoney, burst
into tears, and the two sobbing and moan
ing, went back to where the remains were
lying. Here both
THEEW THEMSELVES ON THE COFFIN
and wept as if their hearts would bresi.
The deceased was thus again positively
identified this time by his own brother.
Orders were given to get the body ready
to ship on the 730 p. M. train to North
field. This was done, and, at the appointed
hour, the funeral party took their departure
for home. Tuesday at midnight Hazel
wood was reached and the body transferred
to the Mahoney homestead.
When Mrs. Mahoney looked upon the
dead fare of her young boy she swooned
fainted dead away.
& All during Wednesday and Wednesday
evening the body was waked according to an
Irish custom, and during this time hun
dreds of people who knew the young man
well in life came to view the remains. Only
a month or two before he had left Hazel
wood to seek employment in Minneapolis,
and all his friends and neighbors had a dis
tinct recollection of him.
The funeral took place Thursday morning
from St Patrick's Church, and 500 or more
vehicles followed the corpse to the grave.
Now comes the sensational part of this
story, which reads like a romance, and is
certainly stranger than many of the yarns
iniBorels that readers are wont to scout at
To-day Tom Mahoney came to St Paul to
v brine home whatever effects were left by his
dead brother; going thence to Minneapolis,
where he knew his brother had worked.
Proceeding to his boarding house, he in
quired if his brother had left any effects be
hind him- Imagine
when he was told that his brother was
alive and well, and that he could got ocular
demonstration of the fact if he would wait
until noon, when the young man supposed
to be lying in the little cemetery at Hazel
wood would return for dinner. Tom Ma
honey could scarcely credit the informa
tion; it was too good to be true. He asked
the landlady if she was joking him, and
informed her tkat he was in no mood for
joking. The lady told him that she was a
earnest, and that what she said was true.
He had only to wait an hour or so, and see.
When the noon hour came a young man
entered the door of the boarding house. He
approached Tom Mahoney, who shrank back
as if confronted by a ghost. The young man
was Patrick Mahoney not Patrick Ma
honey robed in somber shroud, but Patrick
Mahoney in life. In a moment the two
brothers were wrapped in each other's arms,
the one crying for joy, the other dum
founded and unable to understand the
cause of the scene. When Tom
explained , to his brother all
that had taken place; how he (Patrick) had
been killed in an accident at St Paul,
placed in a coffin, shipped home and after
ward buried by his father's side, the young
man hardly knew whether to laugh or to
cry. The brothers left for Hazelwood this
evening, and to-morrow morning the poor,
heart-broken mother will meet her boy,
whom she believes to be beyond the tears
and sighs of this life.
A STBIKXNO POSSIBLE ANALOGY.
The effect of all this may, however, be
considered more seriously than wonld have
been a simple but sad family separation.
This remarkable case suggests a possible
analogy in the now famous Chicago sensa
tion, the outcome of which the whole world
is watching. Nobody now doubts that Dr.
Cronin is now dead and was found one
morning in a Chicago catch-basin. Nobody
who Knew him doubted that Pat Mahoney
was dead and buried, either. In this latter,
instance the man was dead only a tew
hours when his friends and relatives
came and fully identified him. The
day after the accident the identification
continued, and in the evening when the
brother arrived and saw tbe remains the
fact was certain that the body was that of
Patrick Mahoney. Add to this the fact
that on the day following the body was seen
by the boy's mother and at least 500 ac
quaintances, and the identification is as
complete as it possibly could be. The body
will be exhumed to-morrow at Hazelwood
and brought back to St Paul and another
attempt will be made at identification. It is
now believed to be that of Henry Harrigan,
an itinerant plasterer.

Mr. Magee left the car and sought Senator

Senator Eutan informed his friend of

his short stay in this city. Senator Rutan
spoke of the many political combinations
being formed among the local leaders, and
ventured the opinion that Mayor Fitter's

assent occasionally, as he intently listened

Salem, Mass., October 25. A remark

a handsome pair of bays a few days ago,
was followed home by a strange dog which
was locked up in the stable with the horses.
A pet dog and a cat were also in the stable.
The next morning the strange Bog was

dog and one of the horses had been bitten.
Little attention was paid to the matter, and
not Jong after the pet dog bit Mrs. Oliver
and was killed.
On Wednesday the horse which had been

WASHiNGTON.October 25 The campaign
in Virginia is perhaps the most discussed
thing in Washington just now, and among
the many residents who vote in Virginia
the result is awaited with almost as great a
fever of expectation as the result of a Presi
dental election. Every visitor from the Old
Dominion is buttonholed with eagerness
and pumped dry of all the information he
possesses in regard to the campaign.
In Washington there is a considerable
"cracker element, that is, countrymen who
have come in from the State and engaged in
one small business or another. Most of
them are Democrats, but an occasional Be
publican crops up, and the barrel-head
argument on the back streets and in ancient
Georgetown, and the tremendous bets of
"terbacker" and pints of whisky have all
the characteristics of an old-fashioned
The colored people are another class who
take a deep interest in the result A large
proportion of the colored people of the city
are Virginians or the descendants of Vir
ginians, and are all Republicans. They have
have an intense hope for the success of
Mahone, and the wordy conflicts between
them and the white Democrats are among
the most amusing colloquies to be heard.
Just now at the capital, Representative
Cheadle, of Indiana, Is the latest arrival of
those Republicans who have been stumping
the-State. He says, and appears to sincerely
believe, that Mahone will be elected. "Yop
can't imagine," said be to-day, to the cor
respondent of The Dispatch, "the hold
that little ex-Confederate General has on
the people of the State, Democrats as well
as Republicans. He is remembered by
every one as the brilliant associate of Lee,
and even those who are so wedded to the
name ot Democrat as to refuse to vote for
anything bearing another name, admit
THESE MUST BE SOMETHING
in Republicanism more than they can see,
when the brilliant ex-Confederate can aban
don all his ancient prejudices and espouse
the hated name. Mahone's meetings are
well attended by Democrats, and with his
views on the debt question, his arguments
for a business policy free from factional and
race prejudice, that shall put tbe State in
its proper place as one of tbe great produc
tive and manufacturing States of the Union,
he is very persuasive and convincing. The
great point niadebyhim and all their speak

their present condition of influence and
greatness under and because of tbe Republi

that, you see. It is a fact that is patent to
the blindest of them.
"No, tbe race question doesn't cut any
great figure. The prejudice against the col
ored people that is felt farther South is not
evident in Virginia, and I think the colored
voters will hate

as could be expected. The disaffection
among the white Republicans will amount
to nothing. Biddleberger and Groner and
Yost are about the size of the anti-Mahone
party, and I don't think it will grow. Hon,
John M. Langston, the colored orator, is ex
pected to deliver a few speeches for Mahone
next week, and he has represented the col
ored kickers against Mahone. More tariff
has been talked in Virginia than ever be
fore in the history of the State. There was
an eagerness for light on tb'is subject mani
fested in regard to no other, and all expo
sition of the tariff question was listened to
intently and applauded to the echo. If the
State isn't already revolutionized, l am
wrong in all my calculations, and' if it is
not now, it will be beyond all doubt before
another Presidental election. The canvass
is the most thorough ever made by the Re

Mr. Cheadle's views exactly agree with

OIL HADT0 GO UP.
The Standard Not the Cause of?lthe Shoot
Above the Dollar Mark A.Dmand
for Petroleum Did It Opin
ions of an Expert,.
rErECIAI. TILEQBAM TO TnBDISPATCII.l
OilCitt, October 25. AVrKUne is a
gentleman known in all the exchanges that
deal in petroleum as a heavy speculator in
oil certificates, as well as a producer and an
unvarying opponent of the Standard Oil
Company. He is a believer in higher prices
for petroleum, and as he has "been almost
invariably successful, his opinions have
weight with the trade. A statement that
the present advance in the price 'of oil has
been due purely to -manipulation by the
Standard drew him out to-day.ia opposition
to that view, and he holds that tba report is
spread simply for tbe purposeof bearing
the market in the interest of Eastern shorts.
"Commercial conditions," he says, "war
rant much higher prices. The report that
Russia is producing euough oil io hurt us
is untrue. On tbe contrary, the scarcity of
the product at Baku has caused Russian
oil to advance 200 per cent In. price. It
would require many good wells to reverse
this condition. Besides, Russia can never
become a great competitor of Pennsylvania
oil. It is inferior in quality, and-in quan
tity it cannot supply one-tenth tbe-demand
ot Europe alone. The crudeljprodnced
yields but 27 per cent of rcfintd. Lima
crude is even worse, yielding but 15 per
cent of illnminant which holds its qualrtv
for but a few months at best, when it will
smoke badly. In Canada 25 years' experi
menting with this grade ot oil produced no
other result, and Pennsylvania oil fills the
market in spite of the high tat iff."
"The Arbuckle well, near Pittsburg, is so
surrounded by small wells and dry holes
that tbe spot it opens will never produce
more than 2,000 barrels a day. The'district
up the Pittsburg and Western, from Pitts
burg, is mainly imaginary. Regarding Ken
tucky, I had a friend who experimented
there for 20 years without finding enough oil
to grease the wheels ot the hearse that bore
him to his grave. These matters disposed of,
we have a decrease of 20,000,000 barrels in
the surplus stock of our own product since
1887, and our production is nearly 20,000
barrels per day less than the consumption.
The remaining stock of oil above ground
amounts to only fonr months' supply.
"The Standard is not responsible, for this
advance. The purely commercial conditions
alone are. I have often cursed the Stand
ard myself, but there is no room to do it iu
this case, and I don't believe it is right for
any set of men to spread reports calculated
to decrease the price ot the product of their
neighbors when the facts won't warrant it."

Pinetille, Kt., October 25. At Har

plished a sort of coup d'etat yesterday.
County Judge Lewis and his posse of 60
men left Harlan Court House at 9 o'clock
in the morning to make another assault on
Howard's camp. Howard,' anticipating
this movement, had placed his followers in
ambush near town. The Lewis posse passed
directly through the ambuscade, and were
not fired on. After they had got beyond
their foes and were proceeding in the direc
tion of where Howard's camp was supposed
to be, the Howard party moved into town
and took possession of theourt House.
They have complete control of tbe town,
with pickets stationed at all approaches,
and the Connty Judge and his followers
have gone into camp outsideihe town. It
is believed that Judge -Lewis will -endeavor
to recapture the Court House to-day, and a
bloody fight is expected.

Philadelphia, October 25. The hand
ful of earnest women who have for years

who are known to the world as the Penn
sylvania Woman Suffrage Association, met
in business session at Association Hall,
this afternoon, and in emulation of the

several hours in wrangling over
some unimportant changes in the constitu
tion. After some clever obstructionists had
gotten in their fine work, and darkness had
come to their aid, adjournment was had
until to-morrow mornigg, and when the
delegates compared notes they found
that nothing had been accomplished.

A BONE OP CONTENTION.
The committee appointed last year to re
vise the constitution presented Its report.
But few changes were proposed, but one ar
ticle, which had tor its object the.spread of
interest In the movement, was made
the subject of much contention. It
provided for the formation of
an executive committee, to consist
of the officers, a vice president from each
county, and the president of each auxiliary
association. It was presented in an involved
shape, and its language was indefinite.
In order to simplify the article and en
large its scope, Miss Anthony, of Philadel
phia, offered a substitute, couched In plain
language and clear as to its meaning.
Here the obstructionists got in their
work. Dr. Caroline Dodson declared
that it was not definite enough,
and proceeded to offer a lengthyamendment
Mrs. E. Foster Avery asked for an explana
tion and urged the adoption of the, substi
tute offered by Miss Anthpny.
'The person who offered the substitute
evidently does not fully understand her
position," said Dr. Dodson, with biting
sarcasm. "She isjnixed, and must see that
she is making the committee to bulky.1
"I am working forth best Interetft ol-:
the association" excitedly said Miss'lAn
thony, who was prompted by Rev. Annie
H. Shaw, "and I believe that the more
earnest women we get enlisted in the work
the better progress we shall make."
Mrs. Amy urged the defeat of the

A PLEA FOE F0EAKEB.
Senator Sherman Makes an Eloquent De
fense of the Governor Tbe Third
Term Is All Right Campbell's
Charges Are Unworthy.
srsctAi. TBLianAU to tub disfatch-I
Colttubus, October 25. Senator John
Sherman delivered an address at the Board
of Trade auditorium this evening, which
was tbe first of any importance and the most
largely attended political 'meeting in this
city during the campaign. Sherman come
here this morning and bad a consultation
with Governor Foraker this afternoon, and
his speech to-nightindicatedthattheSenator
had been called upon by the Governor. to do
some of the work which the latter wonld
have attended to had he not become dis
abled quite so early.
Sherman bnsied himself during the after
noon gathering data relative to State affairs,
and also looked over Campbell's speeches in
regard to the boards of election. He was,
therefore, prepared to say something new
when he faced the magnificent audience to
night He at once launched into a defense of
Governor Foraker as a third-term candidate
and produced precedents to show that the
Governor had many times before not been
satisfied with two or three terms, but bad
demanded more, and the State bad not been
ruined. He dwelt upon the idea that there
was nothing of the Cajsar in Foraker'a
makeup, and that be would be incapable of
appropriating unusual power, even if he
had the, power of doing so.
Sherman next took up the election boards
and the appointments which are vested in
the Governor, and endeavored to show that
these privileges are an element of weakness
for any Governorratbertban oneot strength.
He asserted that the Governor, at the time
the legislation was under consideration look
ing to the creation of the election boards,
had requested that the appointing power be
placed somewhere else, as he did not care to
nave the burden on his hands.
After Sherman had defended Foraker for
a time against the attack ot his opponent in
regard to a third term, the election boards
and the tendency to perpetuate himself in
power bv the patronage of the office, tha
speaker, in apparent disgust, said:
"These are pretty things to talk about in
a campaign of dignity and which is sup
posed to have issnes worthy of considera
tion. It's all bosh and unworthy tha con
sideration of intelligent men."
" At the close of the defense of Foraker,
which he was called upon to make, he
turned his attention to national issnes, and
talked in a masterly way. . i

rsriCIii TTLXOBAJC TO THX DISPATCH. 1
Chicago, October 25. The two police- ?
saen who were stationed at the entrance to
the Criminal Court building to-day did not
have mnch trouble in controlling the crowd
that have. sought admission to the Cronin
trial. A cold, rain-laden wind' was blowing
off the lake and the streets were deep with
mud. These conditions served to keep most
men and women at their regular posts.
There wen plenty of salts for the spec
tators during the two interesting sessions of
the court, and at no timer was there a crush
at the doors. Inside the court room the air
was damp and cold. Bailiffs walked around
in overcoats, and the women who clean the '
rooms wore scarfs about their necks.
Smoke-fog and rain clouds so darkened the,,
room that the incandescent lights vee
turned on in midday.
AN ANXIOUS PBISONES.
The first thing Beges did when he dropped;
into bis seat at the head of the- prissaers'
box was to glance nervously over a m&raiag
newspaper. Coughlin and O'SalUvas did' .
not appear to notice the spectators who
were craning their necks In aa eSert'to
catch a glimpse of tha famous sssfeets.
Burke and Kunze, however, shewed their. i
r appreciation of the attention they wsra re-.

were nausea in wree eees a a earn, ew
of fee room. i
Later in the day these two prisoners begaa
a flirtation with a girl, and were laughing
-heartily over His conquest when Lawyer'
Forrest, who hopes to clear them oi the
charges of conspiracy to murder, commanded
them to cease their merriment During this,
exhibition by his client long-haired Senator
Kennedy, of Wisconsin, sat feeing the
Court with his feet spread out on the table'
before him, Lawyer Foster, who is defend
ing nobody but ex-Senior Wardea Begge, i
was readinga novel.
. THE LEGAL TALENT.
The pnblig prosecutors were more alert.
Longenecker, Hynes, iflllj and Ingham
each conducted a portion, of the examwa-:
tion. The cross-examiners were Mr- For
rest and Judge Wing. There ware distinct
branches in the examination, The first
was a continuation of the State's fef of,
the corpus delicti. The second point the
prosecutors sought to establish was that the
body received no wounds is its removal
from the catch-basin on the lonely Evasstoa
road. The third branch of the interesting
inquiry was the effort of the State to prove
by expert testimony that the wounds on
Dr. Cronin's head were sufficient to cause
The defease made a pretense at breakia
the power of the testimony oa tie first two
points, and tha, falling ia this, saade a
vigorous onslaught on the evidence of the
experts. This would seem to iadieste that
the defense will combat every theory set,
up by tha prosecution.
HB. POBSBSX'S IDEAS.
As investigation as to the deaUfieatka
of the body proceeds it is clearly shown that
Mr. Forrest still clings to the idea that the
corpse found in the catch basin may have
been that of a man who in life sever knew
Dr. Cronin. His idea is based en the the
ory that the body was so swollen and so dis
colored that it was impossible to identify
Mr. Forrest's efforts to support his theory
have been wofully unsuccessful. Nearly a
score of friends of the murdered man have
sworn that they had no trouble ia ideeUfy
ing the body. Some of them were assisted'
in their labor by the physical peculiarities
of the Doctor, whioh were afterward feuad
in death. Others recognijed the Doctor by
his teeth, by the contour of the face, by the
length of the body, by the hair upaa the
wrists and by the Agnus Dei he wore.
There has naturally bees sosae discrep
ancy in the testimony of so many witseetes)
as to the extent of the swelling of the holy
and the ravages of decomposition. Bat de
spite the disintegration which had takes
place beneath the cuticle the witnesses were
positive in their identifieatloa.
THE STATE'S WTXXB96BS.
T, T. Conklin, the little serve salees
keeper with whoa Dr. Cronia bearded fer
nearly 11 years, identified the body by
physical peculiarities. Big John F. Seas- .
Ion knew the body by the arms aad sfcoal
ders and the little tutt of hair which grew
beneath the Doctor's lower lip. Frank
Scanlon, who saw the Doctor aa boar be
fore he was butchered, reeegaiied the body .
by the teeth. Patrick McGarry kaew that
the body was that ef Dr. Creaia by fte lea;, .
But the most interesting tettisseay pre

that the body taken fro the oeteh baeia
