Detroit Free Press: Nine years ago the past winter Anna Dickinson made a tour, playing' "Hamlet," which covered all important cities between New York and Topeka, going, north as far as St. Paul and Minneapolis. The experiment proved'finanoially successful up to the time of reaching the capital of Kansas, so much so, indeed, that it seemed to turn Miss Dickinson's head. Indeed, during the .two or three weeks between St. Paul and Topeka there were striking evidences that the had gone daft over the large receipts at the box office or for some other cause and repeated comments to that effect were made by her companion, Mrs. General Chatfield, and by her manager, Charles A. Mendum. The season's bookings originally contemplated a tour to the Pacific coast, but all engagements west of Topeka were canceled and new bookings were made. The new route was back East by way of central Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The profitable character of the business done continued as far as Indianapolis, but upon reaching that city all engagements but one—Logansport, one night—were canceled. Logansport was played, and a jump was made from that city, to New York to have the company lie idle for a week and then to open an engagement a.t the Fifth-avenue Theater. Most stubborn and blind to the sure profits' awaiting her in the West, and crazed with the notion that she could capture New York, she had, also, other ambitious vagaries, one of which was that she could be the • 'Camille" par excelleace of the American stage. To satisfy that delusion the play named was performed one evening at In- dianpolis, and the effort was a wretched failure. The jump from Logansport to New York, the brilliant first uignt (papered) at the Fifth-avenue Theater the less than §50 on the second night, the merciless slaughter of Miss Dickinson's work by all of the papers in the metropolis, the dreary two weeks of empty chairs at the Fifth-avenue and the complete collapse which followed are all matters of history, but there was one incident on the ride from Logansport to New York which has never been published, and which at the time, impressed many persons acquainted with the facts that Miss Dickinson was certainly not of sound tnind. Miss Dickinson and her company occupied a drawing-room car attached to a train which left Logansport about 1 o'clock in the morning, and about 10 o'clock the same morning at Oberlin, 0.', the late Henry Ward Beecher boarded the same train with his muscular .colored man-servant. Miss Dickinson observed the eminent preacher at the depot, surrounded by dozens of mortar-boarded students, and when she saw him get on the train she sent for him to take a seat in her car. The invitation was accepted, and during the twenty or twenty-two . hours' ride to New York which followed, much of the time was passed in an interesting discussion of the question of Chinese immigration to this country, the possibilities of the west half of the American continent, the ultimate probable relations existing between eastern Asia and western America, and so on. Mr. Beecher argued, . with bis great ability in favor of the unrestricted admission of Chinamen, or any other nationality on earth to any part of this country, and Miss Dickinson very ably sustained the other side of the question. It was a remarkable intellectual contest, friendly but supremely vigorous, the rivals being very closely matched, a.nd as the train was pulled into the Grand Central Depot it might fairly be called a drawn battle. There was one feature about Miss Dickinson's behavior and argument which attracted the astonishment of Mr. Beecher and others, ' and which were repeatedly • and most seriously commented upon by the eminent philosopher. Briefly stated, it was Miss Dickinson's seemingly irrevocable conviction that she was then and had been for a number of years and would continue until her death, to be the victim of the political plot to block every effort she might make, no matter what occupation she might take up. Tn addi-. tion to this was another firm belief that even her closest and most intimate friends were participators in the plot against her. This scheme, in her mind, had ramifications all over the country and reaching every class of society, thus neutralizing if not; completely destroying her usefulness and putting an immovable barrier in the way of her great ambition. Toward the close of the discussion above alluded to and as a direct result of that discussion, Mr. Meridum, foreseeing the dismal failure which followed at the Fifth-avenue Theater, began negotiations with Miss Dickinson looking toward the making of an engagement with her to deliver a series of lectures, beginning at Denver and including nearly all the larger cities on the Pacific coast. She was to talk in the interests of prohibiting the admission to this country oE Chinese laborers, and the idea struck her most favorably. After the failure in New York was apparent Mr. Mendum had made arrangements so that he was able to offer Miss Dickinson a guarantee of §15.000 with all expenses of herself and companion for the tour of sixty lectures, and the offer was made when the lady was not only bankrupt, but several thousands of dollars in debt. It was declined and her refusal was, at the time, looked upon only as another evidence among many that she was certainly insane in regard to a great number of things. Tlie iutc Mr*. Jane Crawford. Mrs. Jane Crawford, whose maiden name was Eouth, sister of the late Wm Eouth, father of Wm Routh of Twelfth street, who died at her home on the North Side Tuesday was a native of Thurst, Yorkshire, England, being bora there January 21, 1805. At the age of 16 she was married to Henry Morrell and in 1890 came with her husband to this country and settled iri Logansport at a point near where the Pan Handle shops now stand. After living there a little over a year, Mr. Morrel bought eight acres of land on the north side of Eel river, upon which the family residence is now located. Mr. Morrell built the old log house now standing just east of Geo. W. Flanagan's for then 1 ''residence, and also established a ' 'tan yard" and conducted a profitable business up to the time of his death, which occurred in August 1834. June 11, ' 1835, Mrs. Morrell married Samuel T. Crawford, with whom she lived up to the time of his death, which occurred April 15, 1842. The fruitj of her first man-lag* was four children—two boys and two girls—Henry M., Jane., Robt., and Sarah A. Robt. Morrell and Mrs. Sarah A. Brown, widow of Doctor J. T. Brown, are still living at the family home. Henry M. Morrell enlisted as a Union soldier, served three years, was captured by the confederates, laid in prison a long time, was finally paroled and was lost by the blowing up of the steamboat Sultanna while on his way home. Jane E., first wife.of M. B. Knowlton, died in 1876. Two children were the fruits of her marriage to Mr. Crawford. The son, Samuel H- Crawford, died in May '61, aged 20 years, and Ermina Crawford, late Mrs. Minnie Griffith, died in this city in January, of the present year. Mrs. Crawford has been afflicted- for more than two years, and for the last six months was scarcely free from severe pain at any time, and death was a happy relief for her and gladly welcomed. She was the oldest living member of the First Presbyterian church of this city, having joined herself to it over fifty years ago. Mrs. Crawford was well known to all of the older residents of Logansport, by whom her death is sincerely mourned. The funeral will be held to-day at 10 a. m. from the family residence on Michigan avenue, services conducted by Rev. Dr. Putnam. Burial in Mt Hope cemetery. The friends are invited.

Hardy's string of seven trotting horses came up from Logansport yesterday and are now stabled at the fajr grounds. Among them are several blue blooded youngsters that will no doubt make a name for their owner on the trotting turf in the near future. G. D. Custer from the same place will arrive to-day with about ten head. Conradt Bros', will send in six head from their farm about Thursday. Quite a number will also, be here in a few day from Rochester, Lafuyette, North Manchester, Huntington and other places. It is expected that no less than one hundred horses and colts will be in training on our track within a few weeks. Secretary Conradt is now busy putting the track in first- class shape and a few days of favorable weather will find it in £0od condition. All indications point to a successful July meeting as parties from all the surrounding States are daily corresponding regarding it, and we have every assurance that some of the most noted horses and drivers in the west will be here including such noted men as Doble, who drove Goldsmith Maid, and now has a number in his stable that can go in the neighborhood of 2:15, also Dickerson, Bob Stewart, of Kansas City, and many others..
