The Western Union Telegraph any is m receipt of advices reporting that Kings ton, Jama much loss of life. Jca, was destroyed by an earthquake with St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 15. Surgical science, as applied to anaesthetics, may be revolutionized as the result of four wonderful operations performed by Dr. Hal W. Foster, of Kansas City, discoverer of a new local anaesthetic, assisted by Dr. John Young Brown, of St. Louis, at the City Hospital. v x Dr. Foster successfully operated on four patients, who were perfectly conscious every moment they were under the knife. The Kansas City wizard drove all feeling from the vicinity of that part of the body where he proposed t ooperate with his discovery. Although undergoing dangerous and painful operations, the patients talked throughout the ordeal with out any suffering or discomfort what ever. Many famous St. Louis surgeons stood around the operating table and marvelel while Dr. Foster oper ated on a man for strangulated hernia. Doctors dread this operation because ft la both, difficult and dan gerous. The patient watched the cutting process closely. He chatted as pleasantly and was as free from pain as if the surgeon had a guinea pig under the knife instead of his own body. The Burgeons congratulated Dr, Foster at the conclusion of his mar velous feat and predicted that the anaesthetic will bring him world wide fame. The dangers of administering chlo roform and ether will be done away with if the new. anaesthetic is a suc cess. Persons with a weak heart and other constitutional weaknesses can go under the knife without fear. SAYS That He Notified Authori ties of Garfield's Assas sination in Advance. Succeed Allee. Dover, Del., Jan. 15. Harry A. Richardson (Republican) was formally elected to-day United States Senator to succeed J. Frank- Allee. Both houses of legislature balloted separately. The two houses will meet in Joint session to-morrow to ratify the election. 1 New York, Jan. 15. Claiming that he had notified the authorities in Washington in May, 1881, that there was a plot afoot to assassinate President James A, Garfield, Morris Demant, alias William Wlntermey er, came before Judge Teneyck in the Court of Quarter Sessions in Newark, N. J., Monday, with 8 state ment of his adventures written out Diemant s document was addressed to the Court, but the prisoner hand ed it to attendants in the courtroom Diemant's statement was written while in Jail on thin, rough sheets of paper and parts of It could be de ciphered with difficulty. It set rortn that Diemant overheard the plot against Garflold In Columbus, Ohio. All of the prisoner's state ment lacked cohereny. Diemant was arraigned before the court on a charge of stealing cut lery, clocks and rugs from Thomas Scheerln. He pleaded not guilty and was remanded to Jail for trial. Following is his statement: "On May 30, 1881, I came to Co lumbus, Ohio. 1 overheard a plot for the murder of Garfield and noti fied the Executive Department in Washington. I came to grief and was placed by causes, the same as here, for 25 years In prison, on and off, in Ohio and Michigan. And beside the Garfield plotter, by name Richardson " At this point Diemant's statement became so Incoherent that his mean ing could not be determined. There was something written about the Weather Department In Columbus and its telegraphic annnratna h,, there was no connection to his sen tences. At various times Diemant had been known under alias of William Martin and William Ward. Joseph Kraus, of 721 Underhill street, Louisville, Ky., writes to pat ties in this city as follows: "I'm trying to locate a lost rela tive, or, in fact, a mother of a girl friend, born In Andersonvllle, Ohio, March 19, 1887, by Alice Clifton. The daughter was placed in an or phans' home in Cincinnati when 3 years old, and think perhaps you kknow something about her mother, We do not know If she Is married and has a different name now, or do not "know anything about her at all. Now I wish to ask you to favor us by giving us some information, if you can. If not, perhaps you could Inquire for me of some of the older people of that town; and let me know at once. I will stand for all expense In writing and, and niore-so, am willing to pay a reward for your trouble. "If you can not obtain any Infor mation, I wlBh you would give me the name and address of some news-., . , i ... jmjjcr ut Auuersonviiie, or some other nearby town; also the name of your county and countyseat." Inquiry develops the fact that the woman was In the Infirmary and that her child was born there and that af terwards she married a man named Hatfield who lived either In Ross or Pike County in the vicinity of Waller. Smith has been here before under the auspices of the Century club, and pleased bo much with his work that tney were glad to have him return for another engagement. The auditorium was well filled with the mem. bers of the club and friends, when miss Helen Franklin Stone the Dresl dent of the club with a few words Introduced Mr. Smith a second time to a Chillicothe audience. Mr. Smith delighted his audience with his readings, taking from them short sketches Illustrating the many diverse sides of life and the chaiac- ters loved by him, and made famous by his writings. He opened the eve ning by telling of that charming Dack woods character of his "Jona than." His descrintion of Mm his dog "George" was the same as an Introduction to him. This was followed by the story of "Bob's Tramp." Two sketches from his book, "Caleb West," illustrating the different sides of the characters of the master diver, the hero of the story, and Captain Joe, followed. The readings were closed by a sketch of the author's experiences in a Vermont town lecturing under the title of "Five Meals for a Dollar."

The harness .was missed , this morning, and as Artls was seen by a party coming out of the Nye sta ble on Monday evening, suspicion began to point towards him, and was strengthened by the fact that Artis had sold a set of harness at Allen's secondhand store on North Paint street at 8 o'clock this niorn- ng for 80 cents. This set of harness was identified by Mr. Nye as his own, and at noon Artls was arrested and placed In the city prison, strenuously protesting his innocence and claiming that he bought the harness for 30 cents from a colored boy named Johnson.
