The Ci°; Ptof Ombtrtfr Doesn't Have to Talk. r T> 1t I fl 1 ) in h 1 \ — Tho officers liave learned that a {ad named Paul Wemtz picked up the pocket book of Mrs. Ptiredl at the Academy of Music Saturday afternoon. He gave part of the contents to Willie Nellon and part to Harry Wemtz. Over fll was in the pocket book, but, only 80.25 waa recovered. One boy had his part of the money under the sidewalk near the residence of Wm. A. McCnne, one boy had his in au old building belonging to John M. Gait on 4th street and another boy had bla at homo. The boya are pretty young to be up to work of that kind. —The Tillage of Winuebago IB excited over a report that several prominent prohibitionists there are likely to be Indicted for arson. In 1870 David Brown waa engaged in the saloon business in that town. His place burned down mysteriously, and he then asserted that the cold water people, who were quite numerous and aggressive, had set the building on fire. For ten years he h&a been working on the case. Every clue haa'.been followed up, and Hia rumored that he has been materially aided In his task through hints dropped from time to time by persons implicated in the crime. Brown intends to bring the matter before the • grand jury; and the indications are that several prominent and highly respectable ciiizena of Winnebago will bs forced to face unpleasant music. 1ITKRAKY SENATOB VEST MAY-KNiV 4 TILE, Bnt He Can Nnt Force tho Pig Factor to Tell TTImt Ho Knows About How to Btm tlie Mrnt Mnrhet—The Prcrn.lenU In Uio Oaoe limited Vp '>T "'" Chicago IHIUInnnlris and Tliplr PnlMtniieo. • WAsniNntos CITY, S-?pK 'i 1 ;.—During the Isst two wcelts a qviit-t iuvoitipcfition lin.i been nindo for P.

For. all ladies who supervise and prepare their own wardrobes It is full of valuable Information, and in the department of children's garments it is unrivaled. The literary contents of the October number are unusually varied and attractive. In addition to the serials, there are very interesting sketches by Mildred Wentworth Lee, Mary E. Bryan, Shirley Browne, and a useful article on "The Metropolitan Fashions for Antu»n," by Mrs. N. 8. Stowell. There are the usual departments devoted to embroideries, etiquette, and answers to correspondents. A sample copy will be sent to any address on receipt of 25 cents by the publisher, George Munr.e, 17 to 27 Vandewater Street, New York. By subscription, $3 par year.

Mr. Htnnford refu->ed to reply, except to say that he hiid never bribed anybody in California or anywhere. Ho was placed undor nrrc-st and his cnsa in contempt brought before the snpremb court. Justice Field decided he could not be held, and gave a very strong opinion concerning tho constitutional limitations of the power of congress in punishing witnesses who refuse to testify. This decision is one that contributed indirectly to tht. Terry tragedy, Terry denouncing the decision ns having boon corruptly procured by Stmiford. The Case of Hallet Kllboorn. Tho other decision bearing oh the Armour case was that of Justice Miller in the cas* of Kilbourn vs. Thompson.

If an order for arrest wero then issued tho sergeant-atrarms could bring the unwilling witness before the sonata, provided he could find him, but, having got its witness, the senate could not make him talk.
