RELIEVES PRIEST INNOCENT.

Murdered (Jlrl Mute Matcincnt.
Ixiraine, O.. Special. The Rtr. Chas
Helehlin. pastor of St. Js phn chur t.
In thin city, and brother jf Agatha
Hebhlin, who van murdered last
Thursday night, Sunday made a ten
national denunciation of the authori
ties for the arrest of Rc-v. Ferdinand
Walcer, on the charge of murdering
his Plater. The of-casion was at the
ervicesIn the morning in that church
and the place was from th altar Hteps.
Father Keichlin was greatly affected
over the happenings A the week and
could hardly speak. Several times hL
yolcnvas hUBky from emotion aod he
paused frequently to OTercome his
Teelings. Father Reiehlin's statement
as as follows:
"Various events have happened dur
ing the week paht. No doubt they are
a lesson to us. The lesson is that we
should always be ready for death, for
we know not when It will please the
Lord to call us to Himself. Avoid sin
and do good. The lepson is how little
jve can trust the world.
"Brutality is not a thing that is
confided to so-called dark ages. It i3
delusively confined le non-civilized
countries: it is right here at our home,
in this twentieth century. The world
sees it every day.
"I am sorry to see that Father Wal
ter Is connected with the murder of my
sister. I nm sorry because I know I
nm convinced before Clod that he is ab-
Folutely innocent, and that no matter
how strone nubile opinion is. how
spiteful, how atrocior.H that public
opinion may be, it cannot make him
out a murderer, the murderer of my
sitter. The time will come when I will
giv;; the version of the bloodhound
story upon which the character of
public opinion seems to be based. My
friends, I believe Father Walser inno
cent until he is proven guilty.
"Personally, I must say that I do
not know which assault is most brutal
the assault of the murderer upon my
sifter, or the assault upon the reputa
tion of Father Walser the assault
made by public opinion upon that good
"In your prayers pray for my poor
sister. Pray also for Father Walser.
Let us help him carry his cross and
beavy though it be let us act with for
titude and E8 becomes Christians."
The scene of the murder was the
point of interest for thousands of call
ers at the Reichlin home, where the
body was in view until it was taken
into St. Joseph's church, at 3 o'clock,
where the vespers for the deed were
sung by Rev. Chas. Reichlin and two
assisting priestn. The congregation was
no great that It entirely filled all the
eeata and all the standing room.
Father Walser, who is confined in
'.he county jail at Elyria, was not ae- !
cessible to visitors, and he has seen
no one. He Is treated as any other
prisoner except that he has the freedom
of the corridor. His preliminary hear
ing will be held probably on Tuesday.
There is no excitement at Elyria and
no sign of any unlawful action.
Theories concerning the crime are as
many as there are Individuals, while
the authorities are not. disposed to
give expression to any views. Sup
port of the belief that a burglar com
mitted the crime was given impetuos
ity by the statements of several neigh
bors who had seen a stranger hanging
around the Reichlin home for several
hours on the aight of the crime.

St. Louis, Special. At the second
day's session of the National and la
ternational Good Roads Convention.
Gen. Nelson A. Mile?, who is preside nt
of the national highway commission,
made an ad dross on "Military Roads
and a National Highway' and eaii in
part: "Our government has expended
$500,000,000 for the iaiprovernor.t of
our harbors and waterways, an! now
the attention wf the public is beins
calltn to our postal roads and ave
nues, of communication that are moct
useful and important to all our p?o
pie. If such expenditures cf the na
tional Treasury have been made in the
pact for the devdlopment cf railroads
and waterways, is It not now a most
appropriate time that the improve
ment of our roads should receive na
tional attention and, governmental
Ex-Governor Hogg, of Texas,
pointed out the necessity for good
roads, which, he believed, could bo
secured only through the aid of the
national government. He spoke of the
insular policy of the government, and
said if some money that is being
squandered in the Philippines could
be used here in the improvement of
the highways, our roads would be in
far better condition.
Wra. J. Bryan spoke at the after
noon session, receiving an ovation. Ho
said in part: "The expenditure of
money for the permanent improvement
or the common roads can be defend
ed, first as a matter of justice to the
people who live J n the country;
second a3 a matter of advantage to the
people who dc not, live in the country,
and third, on the ground that the wel
fare of the nation demands that the
comforts of country life shall, as far
as possible, keep pace with the com
forts of city life. It is a well known
fact or a fact easily ascertained that
the people in the country, while pay
ing their full share of county. State
and Federal taxes, receive as a rule
only the general benefits of - govern
ment, while the people in the citic3
have, in addition, good streets, side
-The improvement of the country
roads can be justified also on the
ground that the farmer, the first and
most important of the producers of
wealth, ought to be in a position to
hold his crop and market it at the
most favorable, opportunity, whereas
at present he is virtually under com
pulsion to sell it as soon as it is ma
tured because the roads may become
impassable at any time during the
fall, winter or spring. Instead of be
ing his own warehouseman, the far
mer is compelled to employ middlemen
and share with them the profit upon
his labor. The farmer has a right, too,
to insist upon roads that will enable
him to go to town, to church, to the
school house and to the homes of his
neighbors as occasion may require,
and with the extension of rural deliv
ery as he has an additional need for
good roads in order that he may be
kept in communication with the out

New York Evening Journal, Chicago
American, and The San Francisco Ex

Atlanta, Special. G. Hallman Sims
Tuesday pleaded guilty to the embez
zlement of $94,G00 of the funds of the
Capital City National Bank and was
sentenced to six years in the Federal

the bank, and was for some time a

Tallahassee, Fla., Special. Repre
sentative Long introduced a joint
resolution proposing an' amendment to
the constitution providing that in the
collection . of taxes a separate record
be kept of all taxes paid by white and
colored tax-payers and that the school
fund derived from taxing each race be
devoted exclusively to schools of that
race. Thirty-nine voted for the amend
ment to four against it. A change in
the constitution requires a three
fifths vote of all the members elected
to each tiotiie; Many did not vote on
the amendment, and it lacked two of
receiving the required majority.
Rock Miners May Strike.
Wilkesbarre, Special. A mass meet
ing of rock miners v;as held in this
city to take action on the 10- per cent
advance which the men claim they are

the carriage started, a middle-aged wo

seize his hand, but the quickening pace
of the horses presented and although
she ran after the vehicle, still cheering
and ;vavlug her handkerchief for thr
distance of half a block, she was final
ly distanced and lost in the crowd.
The military companies and a pla
toon of police had been waiting two
blocks away and as soon as the line of
carriages apr eared a slower march was
taken up to cover the three miles to
Oden Hall. People were congregated
along the streets and wl'dly cheering
as the President passed. He continually
doffed his hat in acknowledgement.
The hall was packed with a crowd
which had been waiting patiently for
The President spoke of good roads
in tones which showed, a3 well as his
words, that he was thoroughly in sym
pathy with the object of the assicia
tions. "Roads," he declared, "tell the
greatness of a nanon. The influence of
the nations which have not been road-
builders has beei evanescent. Rome,
the most powerful of the old civiliza
tions, left her impress on literature and
speech; she changed the boundaries of
nations, but plainer than anything
else left to remind us of the Roman
civilization, are the Roman roads." At
this point in the President's speech the
crowd rose, cheered and waved hats
and handkerchiefs. The President de
clared that good roads probably were
the greatest agency for regulating the
flow from the country to the city of
young men and young women.
From Odcon Hall the President v a3
driven at a sharp trot to St. Louis Uni
versity. A few minutes were spent
here, after which the President and
other guests repaired to the home of
President Francis for dinner.
President Cleveland arrived over the
Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern at 5:30
o'clock, 25 minutes late, and a large re
ception committee was waiting for him.
The member? of the diplomatic corps
arrived shortly before. As Mr. Cleve
land alighted from the train, he wa3
warmly greeted by President Francis,
who had driven rapidly to the depot
after greeting President Roosevelt at
Forsythe Junction. The members of the
committee crowded around and Mr.
Cleveland was unable to proceed for
several minutes, so thick was the
throng about him. A passage was
finally cleared and with President
Francis he walked through the aislet
formed by the crowd and entering a
carriage was driven to the residence of
President Francis, where President
Roosevelt i3 also a guest.

A number of Southern cotton mill
men who are identified with the Fries
merger scheme, were in conference in
Greensboro Tuesday night. While it
is understood that several matters in
connection with the formation of the
merger were discussed, nothing wa9
given out for publication. The organ
ization of the proposed merger i3 a
greater task than was expected when
the matter was first taken up, almost
a year ago. It had been hoped to
have the concern in working order
early this year, but the stringency
in the money market and other causes
Interfered. The meeting was attended
by. New York and Philadelphia cap!
tallsts, who are interested in the
merger in a financial way.
Wife beaters should take warning
from the sad end which befell Wll
loughby Sawyer, colored at States
ville Tuesday afternoon. Willoughby
and his wife, Maggie, have been Hv
ing in the rear of the Key Furniture
Company, near Trade street, and Wll
loughby had been in the habit of
beating his wife whether the chas
tisement waa merited or not. In some
way Maggie had proroked his anger
and he belabored her with a switch,
and Maggie in self-defence ran and
he pursued her about 25 yards, when
he fell forward on his face and died
in a few minute3. Whether this was
a just retribution or not . cannot be
said; at any rate he his whipped Mag
gie his last time. Willoughby was a
well known darkey about C5 years eld.
At Ann Arbor (Michigan) Univer

standing indicates that he should be
sent home, and alleges that nothing
but athletic inGuence is keeping biff
in college. Physical and mental cu)
