A BIG SUIT FROM A SMALL SUM.
Captain Moore Gives a Bit of Gogebic
From the A’eui York Tribune.
A lawsuit Is pending in the Wisconsin
courts involving a one-sixth ownership iu
the great Colby iron mine of the Gogebic
range, the peculiarities of which read like a
romance, and illustrate at once Ibe rapid
rise in land values consequent upon mineral
developments, nnd the looseness with which
business is transacted iu the newer portions
of the country. The defendant iu this case
is Ca] —N. I). Moore, the discoverer and
principal promoter of the Gogebic range,
who is now in this city, and who was in
duced to tell the story of tile law suit to a
Tribune reporter as follows:
The captain had located the Colby mine
and had induced the present Lieutenant
Governor of Michigan, Mr. McDonald, and
a Mr. McKay to furnish him with the neces
sary money to take up the lauds, their inter
ests being one-third each. The property
was undevelojied for some time, and was
held in the name of McDonald and McKay.
Meanwhile Oapt. Moore had discovered at
the head of Gogebic lake a bit of mineral
laud containing nickel, cobalt and tin. He
was exceedingly anxious to get money to
tak ■ up t his land, aud for that purpose went
to John Monroe, a brother-ill-law of Mc-
Kay, of whom he asked SIOO for a half in
terest in the new discovery. Monroe agreed
to furnish the funds provided that, Capt,.
Moore would admit him to an
interest in the laud already taken
up by McDonald and McKay. Moore
agreed to let him have a half of his one
third interest for $230, on condition that lie
should take a one-half interest in the nickel
and cobalt property for SIOO. w hich was
sufficient to make all the payments for the
preemption. Monroe paid Capt. Moore
SIOO, gave him $lO to bind the bargain for
the other transaction, and for the lialanee
of the $230 gave his note for $240 payable
in one year’s time. When Capt. Moore
came to locate the nickel and cobalt prop
erty at the head of Gogebic Lake lie found
other persons ahead of him, and made
arrangements with Monroe that the SIOO
should be used as a payment on the $240
Under the supposition that McDonald and
McKay had given him a warranty deed for
his one-third interest in the projx rty held
in their name, Capt. Moore gave Monroe a
warranty deed for a one-sixth interest. But
Monroe became dissatisfied and asked for
the return of his money, agreeing to give
up the note and telling Capt. Moore that
the deed had not I e'en recorded. Mi x ire
jiaid Monroe his $l7O. Capt. Moore hail
left the note in the hands of McKay, who
was a brother of Firs. Monroe, and lie says
that she had succeeded in obtaining it from
McKay by tearful representations without
Capt. Moore's knowledge. Monroe died,
and after a time it came out that the war
ranty deed given him by Monroe hud been
recorded, and that his widow also held
the note. She married a second time a
limn hy the name of Crawford, and is
the claimant for a one-sixth interest iu tfce
Colby mine under these circumstances. Her
j brother, McKay, when he found she was
going to make trouble for Capt. Moore, in
[ dneed the latter to have his one-third inter
jest in the Colby mine placed iu his wife’s
I name. The suit involves a one-sixth own
] ership in the mine, the royally from the
leasehold interest of which is alone worth
from $120,00U to $130,000 a year. It was
won hy Mrs. Crawford in tho lower courts,
but, has been carried up to a higher Ix-nch.
la talking about it Capt. Moore said that in
suite of the large amount involved he would
not have fought it, hut, that Mrs. Crawford
knew all about the transactions from begin
ning to end.

GERMAN IN Tllli ITLPJT.
THE CENTRAL UNION HOLDS ITS
Claims that the Attitude of th* You
tons Toward Other Nationalises Uaa
Been Misrepresented Resolutions
Denunciatory of the Knights of Labor
Sent to a Committee.
Chicago. Sept. 3. — The first business ses
sion of the German Roman Catholic Central
Union of America was opened this morn
ing in Bt. Michael’s Hall, with prayer by
Rev. Dr. William Tappert, of Covington,
Ky., who is one of the leading spirits in
the gathering. There were about 300 dele
President Spannhorst, of Detroit, made an
address of greeting to the delegates. Ho
claimed that the attitude of the German
Catholics toward the other nationalities had
been misrepresented and false re
ports circulated. In his opinion
the German Catholics recognized no
distinction of nationalities. No national
questions ever came up in their meetings.
On tlic questions at issue between the Irish
and German Catholics the church alone had
authority to decide. He asked the delegates
to use no hard expressions against other
PRESERVING THEIR LANGUAGE.
The Germans in America were obliged to
preserve the German language in their
schools. On account of that thy had been
reproached with trying to Germanize
America. That charge was unjust. The
Germans were true followers of the church
and understood its teachings. Charges of
that kind should be treated with con
tempt. President Spannhorst denied the
truth of the report that he ever said that
they* would insist iqxi.i the German lan
guage in spite of toe bishops, lie con
cluded by* congratulating the German
Catholics upon the gro.vtn of their socie
ties, ami advised that each lienevolent so
ciety have a fluid to tie used lor the relief
of workingmen in distress.
After the appointment of committees,
George Mietscli, of St, Raul, introduced a
resolution; of w hich the following is a trans
Whereas, The so called Knights of labor
come forth from day to day for the purpose of
helping workingmen to their rights by unright
eous means and trampling law and order under
foot, aud try to destroy scriptural faith, there
fore Ixi it hereby
Resolved. That we urge all Catholic working
people to keep away from said societies, for ac
cording to our experience such company is not
advisable for Catholic working people, for
where Prohibitionists. Anarchists and Social ists
assemble to consult about the welfare of man
kind there should not tie found
any German t’atholic workingmen. In
order to protect the good name of German
Catholic six’ieties front injury, all societies
should lie exhorted not to receive in their midst
any Knight of labor, and such as are already
iu them should be induced to leave said order of
the Knights of Libor.
SENT TO A COMMITTEE.
Friederich Arendes, of St. I Aiuis. moved
to lay the resolution on the table but was
voted down, all but two or three delegates
voting against him. The resolution was re
ferred to the Committee on Labor Matters.
Before the recess thirty-two new* societies
were admitted to the Union.
At the opening of the afternoon session a
dispatch was read in reply to one sent last
week to the Catholic Convention of Ger
many, now in session at Trier. The reply
was signed by Count Liallestrel, chairman
of the convention, and reminded German-
American Catholics that, although the
ocean intervened, their brethren in Ger
many were bound to them by one common
faith aud comradeship in the battle of the
Lord. Three hearty cheers were given for
the Catholics of Germany.
RULING OUT ENGLISH.
An interesting “question of principle’’
was raised when the report from the society*
of New Orleans was read, which was writ
ten iti the English language. Objection
was made to receiving it on that, account,
anil Dr. Tappert again came forward and
moved that the Secretary be in
structed to find out whether or not the
German language was employed as the offi
cial medium by that society or not, and, if
not, that the secretary notify the society
that the Central Union received no societies
but such ns did employ the German language
exclusively. All this was to be done in the
spirit and tone of brotherly love,
but it must lie insisted u|xm,
the reverend gentleman said, as
it was a question of principle and not an
inch should tie yielded. He wanted to have
tho matter settled at once, but it was re
ferred to the Committee on Constitution.
As the conclusion of to-day’s proceedings,
a cablegram was ordered sent to Pope Leo,
congratulating him upon his approaching
jubilee and asking his blessing.
A ROMANCE FROM LIFE
An Old Soldier’s Re marriage to the
Wife of His Youth.
From the Philadelphia Press.
Economy, Pa., Sept. 2. — When Henry
liebley, an old soldier, was quietly married
to-day in the home of Squirt- Offrey, in
Wrigsville, a little village about six miles
from here, it was the sei *011(1 time that he
nnd the frail woman by his side had made
those vTiws. The romance of their lives is
like the imagining of a fertile-brained story
writer. It was the closing act in a drama
upon which the curtain was rung up more
than twenty years ago.
It. was in June, 1857, that Henry, Lebley, a
promising young farmer of 21, who had m
lierited front his father wha’ was a snug lit
tle fortune in those days, first tiegan to pay
his addressee to Minnie Hexer, a farmer’s
daughter of Iff, who was then one of the ru
ral I idles of Reaver county. She seemed to
favor hint until a dashing young Southerner,
named Harvey Johnson, who claimed to be
long to one of the best families of Kentucky,
appeared in the neighborhood and became
a rival of the honest young farmer for her
hand. Then she seemed to forget, that Deb
ley ever existed, and his suit would have
fared badly but for Minnie’s father, who
brought such pressure to lx sir upon his fair
daughter that she at length unwillingly con
sented to become Ixibley’s wife. It was very
evident, however, that her infatuation for
Johnson was complete. The latter seemed
greatly affected by the loss of his sweet
heart and disapjxftred shortly before t.he
The honeymoon bad scarcely passed when
Mrs*, lebley received a letter pnrjxjrting to
come from an old schoolmatx', who hadgoiie
to reside in Ohio, aud who urged the newly
made bride to pay bar a visit. With her
husband’s consent, Mr*. Lehiev left home
ostensibly for that purpine, but never from
that time until today was she seen in
Wrigsville again. When the time set for
her return had pit Mod her luixhand and her
inther made ovory effort to find her. but
LEBLEY MARRIES AGAIN.
Three years (mused by. and ( lieu the de
serted httsbiuid married again. The father
of the missing bride hat! never recovered
from the shock of his daughter s disappear
ance, and had died a broken-hearted man
within a year after its occummee, leaving
to his son-in-law property amounting to
sime $30,000 —all he (xissesNeii— with the
condition that the legatee should never re
lux his efforts to findltis missing wife, and
that when found, no matter how great her
offenses might have Ikxjii, he should make
suitalne provision for her.
When the civil war broke nut in 1861 Leb
ley was one of the first three-years’ men en
listed from Pennsylvania.' He jiavied
through many battles unscathed, hi t at
Gettysburg he received what the surgeons
feared would prove a mortal w ound. His
young wit', whose tenderness nnd truth had
eoasolod him for the disappointment and
iinliapninrst of his first marriage, hastened
from her country home to her husband's
IxvUide. and during the long week* that, he
hovered bet ween life and death nursed hint
with uniroitMlnir devotion
He at length recovered sufficiently to lie
; taken borne, and when another month had
| passed lie-rejoined his regiment and served
jto the end of the war. His wife's health
had been undermined by the long vigil at
j his bedside. She iell into a slow and grad
■ ual decline and not long after life's army
had surrendered and her husband had been
mustered out of service she died.
Wifeless for the second time, Henry t.e'o
ley seemed to lose interest in all things
around Jiim, anil in his great grief to
shrink front all human companionship. For
the past twenty years he has been a silent,
solitary man, trusting the conduct of his
affairs almost wholly to a nephew whom he
had adopted and whose young wife was the
only other inmate of the quiet household.
AS FROM 4THE DEAD.
A few weeks ago there was pin ed in his
hand a. letter addressed to his dead father
in-law. At sight of the familiar hand
writing lie trembled and grew pale. It was
from the long-absent wife of his youth.
Hastily breaking the seal he read that she
was a jKKir outcast, who, weary of her
wretched life, prayed her father’s forgive
ness, and implored him to take her back to
his heart and home.
The letter was dated at Chicago, and
within a few hours Lebley was on his way
to that city. What passed between husband
and wife at their first meeting is, of course,
known only to themselves. It lias since
been learned that, Mrs Lebley eloped with
Johnson, who overcame her scruples by an
Indiana divorce aud a marriage with hint.
After a few years of wretchedness and
poverty he had cruelly abandoned her, and
she had gradually sunk lower and lower
until at last she had resolved, like the prod
igal son, to arise and go to her father.
REUNITED IN LOVE.
The sight of his first sweetheart and wife,
whose memory, in spite of hintself. Lebley
had fondly cherished in his heart through
out the long years, rekindled all the ardent
passion of his youth. He -forgot and for
gave everything) and to-day, in the little
dusty room which ’.Squire Offrey calls his
office. Henry ladder and Minnie Hexer re
peated the same vows of love and constancy
that they had made to each other three
decades ago. Despite the long years of suf
fering through which she iiad come to
l>eaoe at last, Mrs. Lebley’* face is a beau
tiful one still.
Romance Ruthlessly Ruined.
From the Roston Courier.
A friend sends to the editor the following
experience, which has the merits of being
at once amusing and suggestive. Whether
Mr. Howells would relish being identified
with realism in this way is a doubtful ques
tion, but there is at lea-st no doubt that such
is the falo, it being one of the penalties he
pays for popularity:
tine pleasant, afternoon of last week I was
walking along the high and breezy eastern
bank of the Upper Mystic Lake. My com
panion wus a young lady who had then, for
the first time in the summer, escaped from
“See,” said she, pointing across the lake,
‘ ‘there is a tower on the other shore among
the trees. I will be a prisoner there anil
you shall conte and rescue me. You will
stand at the foot of the tower, under a great
oak tree, an hour after sunset. You will
sing and I shall hear you and come. We
will steal down to the border of the luke to
where your boat lies hidden —over there iu
that little cove—and then we will sail away,
von and i together, to fairyland, as they do
in the romances. When I am out in the
country, like this, I lielieved the old ro
mances. But, oh, dear! when Igo hack to
the city I think that perhaps Mr. Howells is
right after all.” I
‘ Mv dear,” said I, “that is not a tower
over there; that is a chimney. I know* the
gentleman who lives in the house. He does
not like people to wander alxmt his grounds
at night singing. My boat is at homo in the
stable because it leaks. But even if it were
in the little cove, all taut and trim, the gate
keeper haj orders not to let any boats pass
the dam- not even two lovers fleeing from
the enchanted tower to the fairy country in
the South —West Medford, I think itisdown
“Mr. Howells is right,” said she. “Let us
go back to Boston. ’’
An Improved Telephone.
Milford Sprj iul to the Boston Advertiser.
By invitation of W. A. Hayward, mana
ger of the i’ulsion Telephone Company, the
Associated Press agent and other newspaper
men inspected their private wire this after
noon. The transmitter contains a most sen
sitive vibrator, fully covered by patents,
and uses no electricity. Two transmitters
were placed in the attics of two different
buildings aud connected hy I,t*oo feet of bare
copper wire. Another was run to an apple
orchard, wound around a tree and continued
back to the house. The party stood in the
orchard and Mr. Prince went to one of the
attics. Conversation was carried on by
simply standing near and talking toward
the linil) of the tree that the wire was at
tached to. The lowest whisper and the
ticking of a watch were distinctly heard
by placing one end of a broom
handle or a stick against the tree
and the other end to the ear. A hat was
held against the w ire, and the
Press agent walked <<o feet by actual meas
urement from the hat aud vet distinctly
heard all the conversation. The playing of
a harmonica and singing was heartf a dis
tance of 75 feet, from the hat. The party
then went to the attic of the house, where
one transmitter was stationed, while Mr.
Prince remained at the other end, nearly
half a mile away. The low*est conversa
tion was heard in any part of the house,
also whispering, singing, etc. The party
then went out- of the house down stairs, and
stood iu the yard, three feet from the stairs,
and heard Mr. Prince sing and talk. Mr.
Prince then went down stairs iti the house
where his transmitter was located and
talked in an entry wav from the t ransmit
ter and wire, and could be plainly heard by
the parties at the other end. Milford is
thoroughly excited over the new invention.
