Kennedy or anybody else a promise it
would have been kept. The facts are that
neither Kennedy nor Beatty are Foraker's

, however, is not pursuing a course to endear
him to honorable partisans. I see him quoted

up in this self-chosen role of Brutus, for the

"By the way, there is one factor in this

Columbus, O., November 1. Colonel
Conger left at noon to-day for his home at
Akron, for the purpose of celebrating his
silver wedding, he having been 25 years a
joyful benedict His departure slightly
entedated that of Governor Foraker, who
left over the Panhandle to Dayton, to renew
his campaign speeches. The Governor de
parted without any particular flourish
of trumpets, driving quietly to the
depot and boarding the train im
mediately. He was looking very well,
indeed, and stated tbat he had quite re
covered from his illness, although it was
against his physician's advice that he ven
tured again into the campaign.
The Dispatch correspondent had a few
words with the Governor, more of social
than political import He, however, took
occasion to remark that he had noticed that
Johnstown citizens had raised a fund of
$5,000 to prosecute the work of recovering
the dead bodies in the Conemaugh Valley.
"Xs sot that a burning shame?" said the
Governor. "To think that those poor people
are forced to take such a task into their own
hands, when a million of money is being
slowly red-taped into circulation. It is a
very singular commentary upon the con
duct of affairs. X feel like a colt turned out
to pasture, at my re-entry into the cam
paign. X have'the utmost confidence of my
election, by a handsome majority."
In the absence of Foraker and Conger, a
suspicious lethargy settled down upon the

After the shipping clerk, delivery man
and other employes of Revell'sbad testified,
the first important witness of the day An
nie Carlson was placed on the stand. The
young woman began her testimony very
timidly. After a few questions she became
so nervouivthat her replies were almost in
audible. It frequently became necessary
for the court stenographer to repeat aloud
the barely uttered sentences which fell from

The audience in the court room j assuming
that revelations of the most startling char
acter were being made, craned their necks in
the direction of the witness stand. The ex
citement became intense as Mr. Mills pnt
the questions. The witness went on to stats
how, on the 20th of March, while she was at
the Carlsons', a man came to rent the cot
tage, which stood near the house. He said
his sister was to keep house for him, and
that he had some furniture he wanted to

"Yes," replied the witness, and that ended
Mr. Forrest then cross-examined the wit
ness at great length, going into details of
her movements and her visits to the Carl
son house. She testified that she had never
seen Burke from the day she entered the
cottage until a few days ago, when she came
into the courtroom for the purpose of iden
tifying him, yet she recognized him imme
diately. His eyes, hair and mouth and his
peculiar way of looking, she said, made a
great impression on her, and she knew him
Mr. Forrest made the witness look away
from Barke and at the jury and then de
scribe his features and the color of his hair.
This she did. Mr. Forrest then raised the
question as to whether this testimony was
applicable to any other one of the defend
ers except Burke. The court decided that
that was a qnestion which would have to be
decided by the subsequent developments of
Jonas Carlson, the owner of the cottaze.
was the next witness. He corroborated the
testimony of his daughter-in-law about the
stranger who came to the cottage. Carlson
went on to saVthat the stranger, who gave
the name of Frank "Williams, said that he
had three brothers, and his sister was to
come on from Baltimore to keep house for
them. He had bought the furniture and it
would arrive in two or three days. The
stranger then took the key. The witness
said he had met and talked with O'Sullivan,
one oi tne defendants, many times, u Sul
livan lived in the immediate vicinity.
THE FATAL COTTAGE.
At the opening of the afternoon session,
Joseph L. Brouse, a photographer, took the
witness stand and identified a photograph
shown him as one taken by him. It was a
picture of the Carlson cottage, house and
icehouse. It was placed ic evidence. John
C. McDavit, a clerk in the Criminal Court,
identified a diagram made by him of the
neighborhood of the Carlson cottage and of
the cottage itself, the size and location of
whose rooms he described. It was admitted
Jonas Carlson was then recalled and his tes
timony on behalf of the State was continued.
He said that the stranger, after renting the
cottage, walked across lots to O'Sullivan's
stable, where he met O'Sullivan and talked
with him. Witness heard Burke say to
O'Sullivan: "The cottage is rented." The
next time witness saw Burke was at about 5
o'clock on the afternoon of May 4, a few
hours before Dr. Cronin was murdered. He
stood on the front steps of the cottage. At
7 o'clock that night the witness heard two
men talking in the cottage.
AN IMPORTANT BECOMMENDATION.
In April the witness had a conversation
with O'Sullivan about the men who had
rented the cottage. O'Sullivan told him
that he knew one of them, that he was "all
right," and that he would pay the rent
when due. On May 19 Carlson had another
conversation with O'Sullivan, in which he
told O'Sullivan that the cottage was vacant
and that he had received a letter from the
man who had rented it, asking him (Carl
son) to put the furniture in the basement
and saying that he had painted the parlor
floor to save his sister the trouble of scrub
bing it O'Sullivan remarked that he was
having hard luck with his cottage.
On the 20th of May the witness entered
the blood-stained cottage, he said, and pro
ceeded to describe the conditions there ap
parent Mills then asked, "Is that the man" (in
dicating Martin Burke), who at your place
you called Frank "Williams, and the witness
unhesitatingly answered, "Yes, sir."
John Garrity, a teamster, testified that
about two yean ago Coughlin told him he
wanted to tee "Major" Sampson, as he
wanted to get him to "slug" a man. A He
wanted the msn disfigured for life", and if he
was killed it wouldn't make much differ

defense sought to show that the witness had
a grudge against Coughlin, bnt he denied,
that such was the case. The court then ad.

told him that the murder was committed by
him (Burke), Dan Coughlin, pat Cooney, a
man of the name of Dennis, and a man
whose name Gillette cannot recall. Another
man, employed by McGinnis, a fish and

the Haymarket, was to have assisted in the
murder, but he backed out The deed was

none was, there, and the body was t'rrawn

the waves washed it upon the beach. It
was then decided to take it, to a catch basin,
which was done. Burke said that the blood
money was paid in a lamp by an attorney

betrayal of the order's secrets by the doctor,

Recovered Tho Caaso of
Glasgow, November 2. A terrible dis
aster occurred in this city lo-day. The
gable wall of a building that was being
erected alongside of Templeton's carpet
factory, on "William. street.was blown down.
An immense mass of debris fell on the roof
of the weaving department of the
factory, crushing it in and burying 50 girls
and women employed in weaving rooms. It
is probable that 40 of those buried are dead.
The accident happened shortly after the
workmen had left the new bnilding.
There were 140 girls at work in the carpet
factory. The majority of them made their
way out safely, but many had narrow es
capes. The building was 300 feet long.
There is a rumor current tbat the founda

lights was the only warning. All made a
rush for the exit, which quickly became

Richmond, "Va., November 1. As
Mahone's schemes for wresting the ballots
from the people are coming to light, the

that bloodshed will ensue at the polls the

be desperate, but a mighty desperate set of
men are opposing him.

of the young orators selected to speak here,
has just Badv a speech in which he warns
Mahone that when he essays to usurp the
place oi dictator of Virginia, "some man
will say to him as did Archibald Cary to

This is too plainly demonstrable to

the world over. Mahone tells hie agents
to pick out a good fighting man at each precinct
where the farmers are, and this fighting man is
to proceed to crowd a number of Mahone bal
lots in the box, and if the farmer objects, then
the fighter must first bluster, and then destroy
tho ballot box, if there is any fight thus caus
ing the toss of the Democratic votes in that
precinct Xet the Democratio farmers of. Vir
ginia, then, be on the alert The State Com
mittee wisely cautions them that forewarned is
forearmed. When the Mahone fighting men
begin to bluster, take them in hand, and guard
the ballot box, for that holds your liberties.
Reports from all over the State reveal new
plans of Mahone. The committee has just
received this from a Lexington "vidette:"
THE DRAG-NET GAME.
I have just dropped on to one of Mahone's
methods put in force In this county, and which
I have no doubt will be worked lor all It is
wortnin every city, town, vuiage, nanuet ana,
county in the State. It is a kind of a drag-net
game to get out alt the figures, and If success
fully worked, will give Mahone a pretty close
idea of his vote before It is cast
It Bmacks of the Dudley methods,
blocks ot five, and no doubt it is the work of
tbat brilliant corruptionist A blank form has
been printed and put in the hands of Mabone's
precinct workers, who are to secure signatures
to a pledge swearing that on the day ofelection
the signers will vote for Mahone and the entire
Republican Btate ticket, and the Mahone
nominees tor the House and Senate, and de
vote the entire day it the polls to
the cause and see that the vote is all
polled. These papers are to be handled
by fives and tens, under captains, and the
manipulators will be reported to Mahone as the
'faithful fires and tens.' A note on the back"
says any man who signs the pledge and falls to
stand up to it will be personally reported to
Mahone. The corruption fund is being placed
among the negroes, but I have yet to hear of
the first man purchased. The small tissue
ballots have arrived, and very likely will be
used If an opDortunlty offers. Several negro
preacners irom otner sections oi tne mate,
hirelings of Mahone, are in town and in the
county distributing, political tracts and quietly
working up the negroes.
MOEE Off THE WAENINGS.
The Btate Committee of the Democratio
party has sent out another circular contain
ing these among other warnings:
It may be expected by the Republican mana
gers, in their desperation, tbat violence will be
excited by the bulldozing and irritating
motbodsitdopted, and that they may apologize
for the defeat awaiting them by the pretense
tbat it was thus broueht abont The Demo
crats all over the Bute should be pre
pared for such sensational reports as will
be given out by their opponents, and for the
attempts tnat wui do maae to puuaoze election
judges, registrars, clerks, and some of the vot
ers. To preserve the peace andact till the vote
is counted whh quiet bnt firm determination
suouldbethe object of all; but Democrats
should continue every effort to bring out their
full vote. They should attend the polls early
on election day, and should stay there to pro
tect them from violence. All Democratic
judges and other election officers who
hare been or who may be arrested,
may rest assured that the Executive Com
mittee will take every step for their proper
defense in tbe discharge of their duties, and
they need be in no wise alarmed by the acts
and threats designed for intimidation. Twenty,

Another setback for Mahone has just been
administered by General Joseph E. Johns
ton. Mahone's Xiterature Committee sent
off into the southwest, among the large ex
Confederate soldier element there, the state
ment that General Johnston had declared
that Mahone war one of the most plucky
officers in his command. The Democratio
Mountain Videttes immediately hastened to
the nearest telegraph office and wired the
circnlar to Democratio headquarters, and
old Joe telegraphs as follows:
The assertion that I told Representative
Brown, of Indiana, that General Mahone was
in my command and was one of the most
plBCkyoOceriBaderme. is utterly Incorrect.
I have never used such language, and could
not have done so. General Mahone was under

TheAKsrican Cotton. Oil Trust meeting
yesterday was a lively one in some particu
lars. The annual reports showed that the.,
profits were $1,000,000 short ot the previous -estimates.
After a. discussion upon the sub-,
jeet of watered Steele it was decided to re
organize the corporation.
"New Yobs; November L The annual
meeting ot the American Cotton Oil Trust
was held to-day. President J. HI Flagler "i
called the meeting to order and about 60 of,,
tbe certificate holders were present In ad.
ditioa proxies representing 340,000 certifi
cates were handed is- The President's re
port showed that the profits of the trust for
the year ended August 31, were. $1,653,783.
At the close of the report, whea a motfoa
was made for its adoption, one of j&a cer-
tificate holders asked if it.wpaliCprinted
for their benefit to whickj'Bsj'J'Ugler re
plied that, while there, was' no objection to
the report being sees by all the certificate
holders, there was great objection to its
being-made public generally. It would put
facts and figures into the possession of busi
ness' rivals which could not be permitted. ' ,
THE 3TK3T. SQTALL.
Now came the first sign of trouble, F. H.
Bonner, one of the certificate holders, rose)
with a printed paper in his hand, and asked
if he understood rightly that the profits' for
the fiscal year.were $1,600,009. Mr. Flagler
Then Mr. Bonner wanted to knowwhy thef
trustees had said in the last circular that'
the profits of the year would be $2,660,000.
"Where had the money gone? Mr. Flagler
attempted to explain,, but. before he had
concluded, another shareholder wanted to ,
