FATAL FAMILY FIUHT.
A Missouri Husband Shoots his Wife,
and She Will Probably die.
Waiuiknton (Mo.), March 30
News has reached this town of a
shooting nfl'alr in which Green
Humphreys, who lives in the north
ern part of the county, shot his wife
twice with u revolver, one ball tak
ing eflect in her back and the other
in her arm. Little hopes are enter
tained of her living until morning.
Family trouble was the cause of the
All day officers and their deputies
have Iwen searching the hills and
forests for Humphreys. At 10
o'clock to-night he was captured by
Deputy Sheriff George Leeak and
Simon Hill about three miles south
of Warrentown, at Liburn Mc-
Cann's place, a brother-in-law of
Humphreys. The prisoner was
placed in jail. Thin terrible tragedy
is the outgrowth of family troubles,
which have been going on
for about live years. Humphreys
is 52 years old and his wife is tho
mother of thirteen children, twelve
of whom are still living. Some three
weeks ago Humphreys and his wife
separated, but shortly afterwards
lived together again. It seems tho
same old trouble was renewed yes
terday, and the quarrel culminated
In the husband shooting his wife
twice, one ball taking eflect in the
back and the other in the arm. Very
little hope is entertained of her re
On Trial for .Murder.
Bloominoton (111.), March :).
Anderson Duu'ison trial in the Mc
Lean County Circuit Court for tho
murder of John Stewart, between
this city and Normal last November.
Duff is a prosperous colored man
and is married. Stewart, another
colored man, was a widower and
wasoon to marry Ahna Crawford.
It -seems that Dull' had become
enamored of the young girl. He
had tried to break up the match,
and failing to do this, he lay in wait
for Stewart one night when he was
returning from a visit to his afllanc
cd, shot him with a shot gun, tho
shot killing him instantly, the shot
breaking Stewart's neck. The girl,
who is but seventeen years of age
appears as an important witness.
She Is a very pretty mulatto.
Stewart and Duff were about the
same.age, both being over 40.

Fort ScoTT(Kan.),Mar. 30. Mr.

agent who came to this city from

found in his room at the Star hotel
early tills morning, suffering from
an overdose of laudanum, which he

a stomach trouble with which he

Every possible effort was made to
relievo him, but without avail, death

rilOlIIHlTION STATU l'LATKORM,
The platform adopted at the Pro
hibition State Convention, held in
Portland this week, is interesting as
setting forth the political reforms
that impracticable party has set out
to accomplish. Besides the abolition
of themanufactureandsaleof liquors,
they design to give the electoral suf
frage to women, disfranchise Illiter
ates and paupers, and make a longer
residence than live years a condition
of citizenship. They favor tho res
toration of unearned land grants,
the enforcement of the provisions of
the inter-state commerce law, the
abolition of national bank currenoy,
a reform in our tax system, the elec
tion of United States senators by a
direct vote of the people, and num
erous other reforms. Such an enum
eration of principles may have tho
quality of high moral worth, but it
is outside of " practical politics," and
is altogether too heavy a load to bear.
When tho millennium comes we
may expect to have our social system
entirely reconstructed. Hero is the
prohibition state platferm:
Wiikrkas, The three great objects
of government are the securing to
the citizens the rights of life, liberty
and property; and
Wur.RKAH, Through the criminal
neglect and pernicious legislation of
the dominant politlcarjwrties, great
ovils have been fostered which im
pair all these rights, most prominent
among which evils is that of the
legalized liquor traffic. With a firm
relianco upon an overruling Provi
dence in favor of the right and upon
tho moral sense of our best citizen
ship, the prohibition party of Ore
gon submit the following platform
of principles: tho government
1 irst Should prohibit tho manu
facture, sale, supply, exportation
and importation of, and Interstate
commerce in all Intoxicating liquors
as a beverage.
Second Should submit to the leg
islatures of the suveral states a meas
ure separate from every other ques
tion, providing by an amendment, to
the constitution tho disfranchise
ment of paupers, illiterates and con
victed criminals, and abolishing the
sex basis in the elective franchise.
Third Should enforce tho resto
ration of all unearned laud grunts,
and prevent corporations and aliens
from obtaining control of great
areas of country.
Fourth Should maintain tho prin
ciples of the Interstate commence
law and make such changes as will
prevent extortion or discrimination
against persons, places or products.
Fifth Should issue all money
direct, andmako all money so issued
a full legal tender for all purposes.
Sixth Should providofor electing
United States senators by a direct
vote of the people.
Seventh Should declaro tho
modern "trust" and other com-,
binations for maiutainimr artificial
prices to be a conspiracy against the
common welfare, and that it be
Eight Should abolish the internal
revenue and correct the inemialitlcs
and eliminate theunjustdiscrlmina-
iiou oi tue present tariu scncdtile.
Ninth Should vigorously enforce
the prohibition of the importation
of contract labor, prevent tho land
ing, so far as possible, of all socialists,
anarchists, criminals and pauers.
The prohibition party pledges
Itself to do these things whenever it
gains control of the government.

Kansas City, March 30. Times
reporters sent by special train to tho
scene of the ilicli Hill mine disaster
returned to-night, and from their in
formation tho situation may be
summarized as follews: The deatli
list has reached twenty-one, and
nine of tho Injured are expected to
die, making the probable loss of life
by the explosion thirty. Some
claim natural gas the cause of tho
explosion, while others contend that
an accumulation of foul gases, with
out proper ventilation, was the real
cause. Tho state mine Inspector ex
amined tho mine March 0, and
pronounced It safe. Tho Rich Hill

nounces him, and demands his
immediate suspension from olllce.

Washington, Mareli SO. The
President to-day, in conversation
with a Callforuiau, said that pro
tests had been received by mall and
telegraph against the appointment
of every resident of California whoso
name has been mentioned lu tho
newspapers in connection with the
appointment for tho Melbourne po
sition, and lie was so displeased with
the whole matter that he had
thought of giving the olllce to
ilr. .Mills' U-otuif.
Walter Thomas Mills, the llttio
giant of Ohio, lectured this after,
noon In tho opera house, for a some
what spat so audience. The bad
weather and the horse show de
tracted from tho attractive powers
of the temperance lecturer. Those
who attended, however, wero en
tertained with a pleasing flow of
oratory, and an able presentation of
the third party question. Ho con
demned the saloon as an enemy to
society; uctauiso It enjoys privileges
without performing corresponding
duties. Tliis was enforced upon the
hearers with powerful logic and
great fertility of illustrations. The
greater part of his attention was de
voted to high license. Hodistinctly
afllrms that thlsis not a step toward
the abolition of the liquor truffle,
hut it long stride in the other direc
tion. It Is not giving hull" a loaf,
but dis)enslug more hcor. He
quoted tho liquor statistics of hv
oral states to prove this proposition.
In Michigan where one ponltonllury
held all tho criminals of the state,
the adoption of high license led to
such an increase of drunkenm and
crime, that In two years three peni
tentiaries were moru than filled and
an appropriation for a fourth build
ing was before the legislature. As
the hour for going to pros Is at
hand, we must dofora further report
of Mr. Mills' argument till Monday.
The eloquent lecturer speaks again
this evening at 7:80 o'clock, and to
hear him is an Intellectual treat.
