THE EVENING GAZETTE: MONDAY. JANUARY, 9 1888. BURNED OUT AN!) SHOT. CHARACTERISTIC INCIDENT OF LIFE IN WATTERSON'S STATE. In Prodiwrnelnif a Fend One Party 8«t« Flro to Ihn Enemy'* Horn* find Bhootl the Family, Mala and Frmi>l«, u They App*Ar—Parlor Incident In New Orl««n« —A rVflffnlng Laundry Agent. CATLETrsncRo, Ky., Jan. 9. — New* reached this place Saturday night of one of tho most wanton and diabolical cn»«i of arson and murdor orer committed in the otate of Kenluclty. The scene ia on the Blackberry fork o( Pina Cnwk, In Tike county. Tho crime is the outgrowth of an old feud, and is lai.-l at the door of the notorious Hat- fields aud their gane. Aloutflva years ago there was an election held on Pond creek, and one of tho Hatflelds came acroag the rivor, and during tho day engnged in an altercation with one of the McCoys. Two of the McCoy brother* came to the rescue and fatally stabbed Hatflald, His relatives •woopoJ down on the McCoy boyn, took them captives, and held them prisoners until Ellison Hatflold, whom they bad stabbed, died, when the HatBelds convoyed the three McCoy boys to the scans of the altercation, stripped them, tiod them to a pawpaw bush, and shot them to death. Binco that time a regular war has been waged between the Hatflelds and their gang, who reside in Logan county, West Virginia, and the McCoys, of Pike county, Kentucky, the east /orks of Bandy river dividing them. A few nights since the Hatfleld party visited the residence of Randall McCoy, and set fire to the houw. AHara, his eldest daughter, was the first to open the door, and in the glaring light she was shot dead by the Bends outside, who were concealed. His son Calvin next appeared, and he was shot dead. His wife then tried to escape from the burning building, and was shot through the head. She was alive at last accounts, but will die, Randall McCoy ran from the burning house with his shot-gun, and, although a vol- loy was fired at him, be escaped unhurt, and opened fire upon the attacking party. >• H« Is , known to have killed one of the gnng named Chambers, and, it is said, shot Capt. Hat- fleld in the shoulder, and put the rest to flight There are rewards aggregating $2,700 offered by the state of Kentucky for the arrest of the Hatflelds and thoir delivery to the Jailor of Pike county for the murder of the three McCoy brothers, but no one seems anxious to take them, as they are strongly barricaded In the wilds of West Virginia. Borne one of their number Is constantly on guard, and they defy the authorities. But retributive justice is now likely to speedily- follow, as their last acts have stirred up that whole section. This gang of outlaws have killed Mr. McCoy's wife, three of his sons, aud one daughter, and have burned his bouse. A TRAGEDY IN A PARLOR. The Jaalous Huiband SliooU Ills Wife and an Alleged Ailmlror. NEW ORLEANS, La., Jan. 9.—A week ago Harry L. Edwards had a; "qimrrelwItlT "Via wife.

About 11 o'clock some one reported to the group in the parlor that Edwards was pacing excitedly in front of the house. The Indies became alarmed and advised tho gentlemen to leave. They prepared to do so and wore saying their adieus when Edwards suddenly appeared in the doorway with his hands in his pock'eta After a pause of ail instant he rushed upon Kuykendall, seized him by the throat and, drawing a revolver, placed the muzzle against bis stomach and fired. Kuykendall fell mortally wounded. Edwards shot him a second tim» and then turnwl his attentiou to the others. The Misses Lewis had 11*1 from the room, but Mrs. E IwarJs bad retreated to a corner.

Mr* Elward'i wound is dangerous, but not necessarily fatal.

Mr. Wicked is an old man, and has been connected with the bank for forty-three yonrs. The jfllciab of the bank had no cause/for suspicion until recently, when irregularities were discovered and his resignation asked for and given.

They are now confined In the Leavenworth military prison. A Husband Slayer Arrested. . CHICAGO, Jan. 9.—Tho tragedy of Christmas eve In which Mrs, Ida Macauley shot and killed her husband at their home, 91 Arthington street, was brought Into recollection Saturday by the arrest of Mrs. Macauley for murder. She had been set free by the jury which held an Inquest over her husband's remains, but Macauley's mother swore oat a warrant Mrs. Macauley Is under guard at her borne, and seems Indifferent to the Issue, The Han Was Murdered.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 9.—Saturday afternoon Isaac Merrick, living at Camden, shot hla young daughter doad and then killed himself with the same weapon. He was probably Insane, as no other cause can b» discovered for the awful deed. THE DIVOKCI: laws of Illinois are such that marriage may be dissolved without knowledge of one of ttie contracting parties, and it can be annulled, too, by collusion between the contract- Ing parties. It is petting so that nothing but moral f. rce binds people In marriage. Reform is needed badly. PERPETUAL YOUTH.

IT AMUSES us to hear talk about carrying- certain of the southern States for the Republican candidate this fall. Now if there be one single thing the south has studied and does understand it IB politics. It gave us the Declaration of Indfpendence" and the Constitution of the United States. It gave us In the seventy-two years that preceded the Rebellion forty-eight years of Presidency, not counting Van Buren, Pierce and Buchanan, who were northern men with southern principles. (Indeed the two Adamses were the only Presidents not distinctively southern men. Until 1801 they gave us all our laws. They made but one mistake and that w is seceding. In 1874, or by that time, they had completed the sum of their labors and had obtained control of all the states south of Mason and Dixon's line, and at the same time (In 1875, when the newly elected Congress came in) got control of the House. Since then, as the GAZETTE has shown, they have controlled all legislation, as they did before the war. These southerners don't know how to make money; Yankees can double discount them oa factories, steamboats, and general financial prosperity; but when it comes to politics, our northern people can go to school to the southerners for many years to come.' There is no more chance for a Republican Presidential candidate to carry one of the southern States, then th^re is for a Fiji Islander to successfully compete for the Greek prize at Cambridge. They are willing for it to seem tote near to carrying Virginia, Or North Carolina, or Arkansas, or Louisiana; but It Is only in the seeming. Cleveland Is just as solid at the south and will be in November next, as the average fellow is with his girl when he is standing up before the preacher to marry her. TTTTAT TVE fiTTUVT: FOR.

Nsw YORK, Jan. 9.— On Sept. 5, 188<, Julius Peuret escaped from Sing Sing where ha bad served four months of a five-years term for forgery. He made his way to Montreal. There he assumed the name of Charles Chestmet and married a pretty young French- Canadian girl. Throe mjnths ago he brought hi« wife to WmiRmsburg, N.

Since his marriage he has led an exemplary life and believed himself to be free from pursuit -^v One day last week a former jail companion recognized Feuret on Sixth avenue, and notified Warden Brush. Saturday Feuret was antktod at his home in Williamsburg, and returned to the prisoa Before being taken •way Feuret confessed to his wife feelingly all be bad done. His wife said: "You have always been a good husband to me," and then swooned. As the poor woman is In a delicate condition it is much feared that the shook may endanger ber life. Career of a "Laundry Agent." ALIJANCB, O., Jan. U.— Borne months ago this city voted in favor of Prohibition. Soon all the saloons were turned into "re»tau- rants, "and- "hot soup" signs became oon- ipicuoui It also became evident that liquor- selling bad not bjen diminished to any alarming extent. Two week* ago there arrived here a gentle-looking man wbo registered is A. M. Erwin, of Chicago. He represented himself as the agent of a steam laundry and wanted .to start a branch in this city. He was a Jovial fellow and soon worked his way in among the boys. Occasionally he would get dry and the son of a prominent hotel keeper would accompany him to one of the "restaurant*, * where bis wanu would be supplied. After be bad sampled the drinks at all the "restauranU" he caused warrants to be Issued for the keeper* of the placet Ho was a Pinkerton detective in disguise. Eight men were arrested and fined in sums rauglng from $50 to $100 and cocta, and to stand committed to tho Clove- laud workhou sa until paid. This in brief is the career of a laundry aeent in this burg. Will Find Thoir Way to Prison Yet. ST.

"It is truly astonishing what curious things are found In the stomachs of elephants," said Superintendent Conklin, of the Central Park menagerie, aa he road 1 tho story from Bridgeport about the find- J ing of an ivory idol and other curiosities In the stomachs of the elephants that were kMled in the fire at Barnum's winter quarters. "I doubt very much about the idol being found, butastothe knives, plec» of lead pipe and the coins, that is quite common. - "I had an elephant here, and when he died there least $10 worth of coins found in his stomach. Some of the coins were English pennies, threepenny pieces; some were German coins and others were the coins of various European countries, and Chinese coins were also found. "Another elephant we had here was crazy for hats. The boys had great fun throwing each other's hats into the in- closure. The elephant would just put out his trunk and in a twinkling the hat was gone. One day a, gentleman's silk hat blew off. The elephant picked it up and disposed of it as quickly as he did of the straw hats of tho children. "It seems that the elepn-uj* 1 * jrtwmafih will take anything. Anything but metal seems to pass away without causing to* animal any pain, but it appears that th* gastric Juices on)y tend to oxydize coin* and the like, and they remain in the beast's stomach until death. "Cows are the only other animals that have a fancy for disposing of foreign substances. All other animals reject any foreign substance that may pass down the throat. "I should judge the elephant's tasting powers are limited, because he gobbles up everything that Is offered him. "The ostrich is Just about as careless of what he swallows as the elephant. He takes in anything he can catch, and more curious things have been found in the stomach of the biped than that of the quadruped." Charles Reiche, the dealer in animals, not only corroborated Mr. Conkllu's experiences, but related some of hia own experiences in that line. "Once we had an elephant," he said, "that took part in the flrst Plattdeutscher Volksfest ever held in this city. Out at the park we had the animal- on exhibition. A lady held out her pocketbook, and the elephant took It in hta trunk, and before the woman could realize what a foolish thing she had done the purse was safely stowed away under the ribs of the big brute. I had to give her twenty-five cents to go home with. "If a man held out a loaded pistol that elephant would have swallowed it Another time one of the keepers left bis lunch for a second, and laid hia open Jack knife on the top. Lunch, cloth, jack knife and everything else at once disappeared down the elephant's throat, and he never seemed to suffer from it. Elephants must have armor plated stomachs for they take ia everything from a lady's hairpin to a wooden image." "Theu you believe the sacred elephant swallowed the idol as reported?' "I certainly do. The sucred elephant would Just as soon pick up a stray god as he would a banana or oranue " New York Press. Jolly Prlsoni in Australia. There is a^ail in Queensland where the lady boarders have quite ugood time of It. One of the fair creatures "is allowed at all hours into the Jailer's house, where she plays the Jailer's piano late at night and keeps the warders awake." In another prison, at Townsville, one hard labor gentleman has learned to play ch«ss and has worried through 700 games in throe months, bat he speaks very unfavorably of the officials, who actually refused to allow him to go to Adelaide to take part in the chess tournament, although he was willing to pledge his word that he would return some time, or perhaps a little later.

WHILE CONGRESS is looking around for something; to do, It may be suggested that ono of the most immediate and sensible steps it can take, is to revise and correct the patent laws. The late decision in loWa in relation to ihe_Glidden..harbwirfi_.patent^_for__ln- stance, suggests that Congress should do something on this wise: When application is made for a patent, to publish for sixty days the fact that application has been made for the article named; that it is so-and-so; and that if any one knows of any such thing having been in use up to that time by. somebody other than the applicant, it should be made known. We have no doubt but that Ulidden thought he had a brand new thing, and that his claim for a patent was genuine. Now if the Supreme Court should finally decide that his claim is "no good" does it not follow that he will have to disgorge his royalties to those who have paid them in? And remember that though "those in~ authority" have" decided that his right was good, yet if the Supreme Court decides that it isn't while that decision may impoverish him, still he has no redress. ' Although regularly constituted • officers of this government decided that his claim la good and he went ahead In entire good faith under that authority and parted for a consideration with his rights, yet he cannot fall back upon government to "make him good." Congress should pass a law that the 00 day advertisement shall be made, and that when that time is up, and nobody shows a prior claim to originality, then It is good and final and no after claim can hold good. We feel no interest in the barbwire matter; indeed, our best friends are interested in having it shown that Glidden'.(Washington & Moen) are not entitled to their royalty. We merely are reminded by the late decision in their case that it ts not right for one branch, of the government to say a patent is good and for another one to say it isn't worth a cent. hnslabore<l,notinvnin, but has Inlrared for centuries. The proofs ofwhatithasnchieved • are simply unanswerable. They establish points of excellence which have never before been attained, and establish the certainty of relief against all doubt or controversy. Mr. W. f. Dowdall, at present the postmaster of Peoria, 111., under date of April 22, 1881, wrote as follows: "Over two months ago I fell on the ice while crossing the street, badly dislocating my shoulder and causing great suffering until a few days ago, when I got n. bottle of St. Jacobs Oil. To my surprise and great aatiafaction I fonnd great relief from the .first application, and before using one bottle my arm and shoulder were relieved." In confirmation of the.foregoing, he writes, June 29, 1887 : "I can't make my former statement any stronger. I think St. Jacobs Oil a great remedy in cases of sprains." Mr. Frank Monroe, Francisville, III., Jan. 30, 1887, after stating hia own case of a permanent cure of rheumatism after suffering years, says: "A friend of mine living in Ohio had the rheumatism in his knee «o that it was swollen to twice its natural size, and for two years had to walk with « cane and crutch. Happening in that country I told him what St. Jacobs Oil had done for me, and he snid he would try it. In a few months after he wrote me he was as well as ever he was and that St. Jacobs Oil had cured him." Sept. 16,1880, Mr. Jnmes Con.lan, Jr., at that time librarian of the Union Ciitholic Library Association, 204 Dearborn St., Chicago, 111., wrote as follows: "I- wish to add my testimony ns to the merits of St. J-icobs Oil-na n cure for rheumatism. One bottle has cured me of this troublesome disease, which gave me a great deal of bother for a long time, but thanks to your celebrated Oil, I am cured. This letter ia entirely unsolicited by any one in your interest." In the regular way of voluntary testi- J)LP.'ji"ls...J'oming ip, in n regular line •of business, Mr. Silas Wiles, Danville, 111., writes, Aug. 29, 1880: "I suffered for a long time with swollen knee. Hnd no use of it for weeks and tried many remedies, but could get no relief until I bcgnn the use of St. Jacobs Oil. After a few applications the swelling went down and the pain ceased entirely. I used two bottles and am pleased to say I have had no tronble with it since." What, therefore, is within cosy reach, to be had of every dealer, and which literally conquers wherever applied, should be in every house. ' Carlisle' will stay in, but Thoebe says he is elected.

Here also I very promptly made the acquaintance of Moore's famous bnl-bnls, the "sweet uightinpales" of Lalla Rookh. The garden la full of fruit trees and grape vines, and here several pairs of bul'-buls make their home. They are great pets with the Afghans, and when Mohammed Ahzim Khan calls "Bul-bul, bul-bul," they come and alight on the bushes close by the bungalow and perk their heads knowingly, evidently expecting to be favored with tidbits. -They are almost tame enough to take raisins out of the hand, and hesitate not to venture after them when placed close to our feet. It is the first time I have had the opportunity of a close examination of the bul-bul. They are almost the counterpart of the English starling as regards size and shape, but their bodies are of a mousy hue; the head and throat are black, with little white patches on either "cheek;" the tail feathers aro black, tipped with white, and on the lower part of the body is a patch of yellow; the feathers of tha head form a crest that almost rises to the dignity of a tassel. Whilst the bul-bul is a companionable little fellow and possessed of a cheery voice, his warble In no respects resembles the charming singing of the nightingale, and why he should be mentioned ia connection with the sweet midnight songster of the English woodlands U something of • mystery.
