Joe Mulhatton Becomes Insane at Chicago, The Malady of the Famous Originator of "Tall ".Stories Results from a Fall Some Time Ago. OF ms EBCOED. CHICAGO, April 21,— Joseph Mulhat- ton is insane. He is locked .up at the detention hospital to await formal examination into his mental condition. Mr. Mulhatton is a traveling- salesman. He became widely known some years ago as the apotheosis of the drummer's talent for telling- tall yarns. His extraordinary ability in this professional acquirement excited the unbounded admiration of his fellow- drummers, which was appropriately- expressed by making- him their candidate for the presidency of the United States during the last national campaign. Last January he was thrown from a street-car in New Orleans, and the fall caused concussion of the brain, which finally resulted in in«in- ity. He has been in the city four days and was staying at No. S7S Wabash avenue. H. B. Mulvaney, a lodge brother, found him. roaming- about the streets in a demented condition, and while caring- for him at his room Mul- hatton took a revolver from his trunk and attempted to shoot Mr. Mulvaney. The police were called in and Mr. Mul- hatton taken to the detention hospital. He is quiet and appears to realize his condition. He is said to have ample means and it is thought he will be taken to a private asylum. LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 21. — Everybody in the United States has heard of Joe Mulhatton, the famous newspaper romancer, who was arrested at Chicago Monday night. Mulhatton is of rather- eccentric appearance. He always wears a Prince Albert coat and dresses neatly: Tn his manners he is a typical drummer, and has always been counted an excellent and reliable salesman. He has been "on the road" for fifteen or twenty years, and in spite of his reputation for telling tall stories he is regarded as exceedingly honest and conscientious in all his business ' transactions. He is. a member of the Baptist church and is a regular attendant at the services of the Walnut Street church in this city. He is also a member of and active ' worker for the Kentucky Humane society. He is a native of Pittsburgh and he once told a reporter that he began his newspaper romancing . there. He first got into notice .here by prodigious ••fakes" of wonderful caves -full of bones of prehistoric men and animals, Many of the most prominent newspapers in the south and west were imposed upon by his exceedingly circumstantial details of his discoveries. Once he wrote thatoil wells of extraordinary productive capacity had been sunk near Glasgow Junction, and this brought visitors and scientific inquiries from all parts of the country before the lie was exposed. Then he wrote stories of robbers murdering well-known drummers. Next he told of wonderful meteors which had fallen to the earth in Texas and other parts of the- 'south. He. kept up these stories until he had become so notorious that he could no longer impose upon the southern newspapers. Occasionally one would knowingly print his fabrications, but this was not often. He did not like to give up ' his hoaxes, however, and only a few months ago succeeded in. imposing a remarkable story upon the Boston Herald. GROWTH OF OUR SCHOOLS.

Opening of the Convention of £<;a/;a« Clubs at Cincinnati. CINCINNATI, April 21.—The National republican league, composed of delegates from the republican clubs of the countL-y, was called to order in Musia hall shortly after noon. President Thurston delivered a lengthy address. ' JJ r. Thurston characterized the league as the volunteer political organization of the republican party. "It has no pay roll; it controls no patronage; it asks no administrative favor; it •is devoted alone to the advocacy and perpetuation of thoss great principles which guarantee liberty and equality to every American citizen. It follows the personal- fortunes of no leader and will not commit itself to the candidafjr of any man; it is for the nominees and the platform of the republican national convention. The delegates here represent more than 10,000 permanent republican clubs. The membership of the league already exceeds 1,000,000.'.' Mr. Thurston then went on to eulogize the republican party, which, he said, by its protection policy had developed the resources of the country and doubled the. rewards of American labor. He said that the enactment of the McKinley bill so near election day that its provisions could not be explained, its practical effects determined, or the falsehoods concerning it refuted, cost the republican party thousands of votes. But before the next presidential election its beneficial effects will have become apparent, and if any of its schedules prove to be excessive or unjust the republican party stands ready to correct its own mistakes without destroying the foundation principles of American protection. He said the importance of -the farmers' movement must not be underestimated by the republican party. The hope of the democratic party to-day is based upon its ability to combine with the alliance on electoral tickets in the western states and thereby throw the election of president into the house of representatives. '-. Referring to the Is ew Orleans lynching the speaker said: "Of one thing let all Christendom take notice: If other nations rid themselves of anarchists, cutthroats, assassins and laz- zaronl at bur expense, the American people- will protect themselves. Our government stands ready to make ample reparation for every wrong done to the real citizens of any foreign power, but not a dollar will ever he paid for the killing or any red- handed outlaw, though the navies of all Europe should thunder at our harbors, and the flag of thw republic should once more need a million muskets for its defense." : ; In conclusion Mr. Thurston declared that now was the time to begin the campaign" 'Of -1892, and that the. old guard of the party must now give place to the younger leaders.
