A MODERN MONTS CRISTO.
Tho Remarkable Story of Edward Har
rison, a Pardoned Felon.
From the Qni’.ha Bee.
The Union Pacific overland train yester
day morning bad a passenger on board
named Edward Harrison, a well-known
California millionaire, whose history, as
related by himself to a Bee representative,
is a most romantic one, and in a degree
equals that of Dumas’ famous hero, Edmond
Dantes. The reporter was given a “tip” by
n sable porter that a passenger of more than
ordinary interest was seated in the smoking
compartments of the rear car and the gen
tleman was sought out. Mr. Harrison, for
that was his name, is a fine-looking man, 41
years of age. He wears a full beard, slightly
tinged with gray, and is a pronounced bru
nette. During the wait at the depot and
the ride to Council Bluffs he related his
story, which substantially is as follows:
Mr. Harrison is the son of a New York
tailor doing business at No. 421! Fourth ave
nue, New York. In 1865, when 18 years of
age, ho ran away from home'and made his
way to New Orleans. He found nearly all
industries paralyzed from the effects or the
war, and for self-maintenance was obliged
to seek employment on the sugar plantation
of Pierre Dense. Hero he remained for four
years, and by practicing the strictest econ
omy was enabled to save SBOO. In 1870 Mr.
Harrison decided to go to California, and in
the spring of that year reached Sacramento.
Here he became acquainted with a man
named Janies Lawson, with whom he en
tered into partnership, and the commission
house of Harrison & Lawson was estab
lished. Botn put iu an equal amount
of money, but after five months
of the firm's existence Mr. Har
rison discovered that Lawson was
systematically robbing him, and insisted
that the partnership be dissolved. After
several stormy scenes between the two men
the dissolution was effected, and each one
began business under his own name. The
rivalry existing between the two men was
the subject of much concern among the peo
ple of Sacramento, and it was the openly
expressed opinion of many that the feud
would eud m bloodshed. "Both men were
hot-tempered, and on many occasions ex
pressed their hatred for each other in un
guarded and violent terms. In fact, Mr.
Harrison was known to have said that he
would “fix Lawson forever” if opportunity
was ever offered.
One night about seveu months after the
dissolution of the firm of Harrison & Law
son, the latter was shot and instantly killed
immediately in front of Mr. Harrison’s
place of business. Mr. Harrison was writ
ing letters at his desk when the shot was
fired. He grabbed up a pistol that lav be
fore him, and rushed to the sidewalk. There
he found a prostrate form, but ere he could
discover its identity the police came up and
placed Harrison under arrest. Nxt
morning lie was lodged in the county jail,
to await trial on the charge of murder.
At the next term of the Criminal Court
Mr. Harrison was tried for the murder of
James Lawson. The best legal talent in the
State was employed by the defense. The
chain of circumstantial evidence was so
strong that anything short of conviction
was impossible, and Mr. Harrison was
found guilty and sentenced to be hanged.
It was proved that Lawson and Harrison
were deadly enemies, that the latter had
made threats against, the former’s life, that
he was found standing over the murdered
man with a pistol iu ms hand from which
one shot had been fired, and that the bullet
found in Lawson’s body was of the same
calibre as those remaing in Harrison’s
Mr. Harrison's attorneys immediately
filed a motion for anew trial on the ground
of having discovered new and important
evidence. After several days' argument
their client was granted anew trial. Har
rison’s lawyers then set up a novel defense,
And by a number of witnesses showed that
their client was a somnambulist and that he
had been known to discharge firearms before
while in a trance. It was shown that he had
remained up all night previous to the mur
der and had complained of great fatigue
during the day. The jury was out five days
and then brought in a verdict of guilty of
murder in the second degree. While tins
was clearly in violation of the evidence and
law, Mr. Harrison’s attorneys counselled
their client to abide by it. They evidently
considered him guilty’and thought he was
getting off very easily.
The unfortunate man was sentenced to
the penitentiary for eighteen years. During
the nine years that followed ne became ac
qua nted with a fellow-convict named Wil
liam Paddock, sentenced to life for the mur
der of a miner. Finally, in the year 1882,
Harrison was pardoned and released from
imprisonment, liis innocence being estab
lished by the death-bed confession of a man
named Eaton, who stated tliit he killed
Lawson for the purpose of robofery, but tho
appearance of Harrison on the scene with a
pistol in his hand prevented him from re
moving the murdered man’s valuables. Be
fore he left the prison he was accorded an
interview with Paddock, who told him of
certain rich gold deposits in Idaho known
only to him. This information was given
to Mr. Harrison only with the understand
ing that if he found the statement to be
true he should use every effort to secure
Paddock’s pardon and give him a certain
percentage of the value of the find.
Mr. Harrison was greatly impressed with
the truth of Paddock’s revelation, ami after
securing what little money he possessed
started at once for Idaho. Following the
instructions of Paddock lie finally struck
naming ore in what is now known as the
Cceur d’Alene mines. Mr. Harrison en
gaged the co-operation of a wealthy gentle
man in Sail Francisco and bought up a
large tract of the land, which lie afterward
sold at fabulous rates, making himself im
Mr. Harrison did not forget the convict
Paddock, but used every effort to effect his
release and finally succeeded. Almost the
last official act of the late Gov. Bartleft, of
California, was the signing of Paddock’s
pardon. Mr. Harrison is now ca route to
New York to visit his aged parents, whom
he has not seen for twenty-two years.
MISS ISABELLA A. BEECHER.
Teachings the Mystic Process ot Mind
Healing in Plymouth Church.
From the New York San.
Miss Isabella A. Beecher, a granddaughter
of the Rev. Edward Beecher, and a niece of
the late Henry Ward Beecher, is holding
Bible meetings in the parlors of Plymouth
Church, and her audience on Friday after
noon last numliered thirty-five women and
two men. The lecturer reads portions of
the Bible, and then comments on the pas
sages read. Her interpretations are
clear, and she is an entertaining speaker.
This latest debutauto of the Beecher
family is not more than twenty-three
years old, a dark-eyed, slight and self-pos
sessed young woman. She wore at her lec
ture a slouch wool sombrero, guiltless of
any trimming and simply creased through
the centre of the crown. It gave to her face
a masculine look, Her features are small
and clear cut. Miss Beecher came East
from Chicago very recently for the purpose
of practicing healing and teaching the so
called Christian science. She has lived with
her invalid mother in that city all her
life, spending some of her time in
Boston, where for three ■winters
she was a pupil of Mrs. Eddy, who is
the head of one of the schools of healers.
Brooklyn is a good field for this sort of
practitioners and lecturers. Miss Beecher
teaches that thought is a force: that it can
be vitalized by the will, and then it can bo
sent forth to do work. Patients are to thiuk
and will themselves into a state of high
bodily health. She declared that the error
of a belief that there is substance in matter
has stopped the demonstration of Christ in
the world, and until pooplo accepted the
spiritual interpretation of His life and death
they could not know and be the truth. The
young lady went on to say that there was
no life substance or intelligence in matter,
and that it was this false belief that crucified
She said that when properly understood
the faculties of man could be used for higher
service than at present. Earth, she said, ;
was an eternal expression of heaven, and if j
men and women would rule outal the evil |
of each faculty and use only the good in I
them they would be carried forward to a
plane where the gifts of healing and prophe
sying would be as much a part of them
selves as the sense of tasto and of sight.
Miss Beecher asked the women questions,
and their interpretation of her readings of
Scripture showed very plainly that they
were all or nearly all conversant with the
mind-cure teachings. She quoted St. Paul
frequently as the teacher whose philosophy
was of most value to students, because it
was in advance of the accepted teachings of
Miss Beecher is assisted by Miss J. S. Rey
nolds, who will remain with her in Brooklyn
to teach and heal. It is very possible that
Miss Beecher will have a large following,
not only because she is a Beecher and has
got permission to use Plymouth church, but
for the reason that she is a clever woman.
She has an unuommonly bright way of
putting old facts and making practical
Asa proof that Brooklyn is a good field
for this sort of thing, it is said that oue
teacher in Greene avenue had a class of
sixty last winter, and that her time will lie
fully taken up from now until next May.
Another woman is said to have made up
ward of $15,000 since she began work in
Brooklyn a vear and a half ago. Bhe got
SSOO a month out of one woman. The ma
jority of the mind healers charge from SIOO
to S3OO for a course of lessons ranging from
twelve to twenty, and they have had
classes of from ten to thirty members.
Miss Beecher’s advent will add to the inter
est in the subject. Her public instruction
will be continued weekly.

Minnie Palmer’s Collection of Jewels—
How They are Guarded.
From the Few York Morning Journal.
Not many people have ail idea of the
bother and worry which the possession of a
large collection of precious jewels entails.
A reporter had a conversation with Minnie
Palmer a few days since, in the beautiful
and almost palatial quarters occupied by
our popular little pet, at the Westminster
Hotel in this city, and he was favored,
among other interesting things, with an
account of the surprising magnitude of the
methods she was obliged to adopt to protect
her jewels. Miss Palmer was asked how it
was that, considering so many people re
quested to see these precious stones in pri
vate, she had never met yet with any seri
■ “Well,” said Minnie, “my jewels are kept
in separate trays, each tray containing only
certain articles, bracelets, rings, necklaces,
pins, earrings, bead ornaments, brooches,
watches, chains, charms, sleeve and collar
buttons, etc., being among the collection.
Every tray has a separate place for each
jewel, so that if any one should be misplaced
it is quickly and easily noticed.”
The reporter asked what, might be the to
tal value of all this jewelry.
“Tho several travs you see,” said Miss
Palmer, “contains more than $850,000
worth of diamonds, rubies, sapphires,
pearls, both pink and white, turquoises,
etc., and, I believe, together they really
form the choicest private collection in the
When not in use the jewels are placed in a
small iron safe (with combination lock), are
kept in the hotel vault, and are guarded
night and day by one of the two specially
engaged detectives in each (own that Is vis
ited. The detective in charge at the hotel is
relieved by another special officer, who goes
to and from the theatre, remaining behind
the scenes with Minnie Palmer during the
When leaving a city the little iron safe
containing the precious stones is always
forwarded by a route different from the
one taken by the company, and it. is never
sent in the same manner twice in succes
sion. The express company usually do
this work. One of the special officers in
variably accompanies it ami he is met at
his destination by others belonging to the
detective force of whatever city the safe
is bound for. These are notified in proper
time as to what arrangements have been
Thus it will be seen that the possession of
so large, rare and costly collection of valua
ble gems inflict upon the owner a vast
amount of trouble and expense, notwith
standing the satisfaction derived from the
possession and its unquestionable vaiue
as a point of attraction to public curios
ity. Miss Palmer does not depend upon
her diamonds for success, neither does Patti,
but they certainly aid in calling attention
to the star and form a tangible proof of
the financial triumphs with which she has
THE WANE OF THE AMATEUR.
At Which Condition of Affairs There
la Much Rejoicing.
New York, Nov. 20 —lt is a notable and
delightful fact that the amateur musician
appears to be on the wane, socially speak
ing. The girl who plays the piano and the
obliging lady who insists in struggling
through aecompan ments for professional
singers, and becoming gradually unknown
quantities in the drawing rooms. Our ideas
iu regard to musical matters are nowadays
so precise, our taste has been so perfectly
educated bv the constant opportunities that
are presented for heating and learning to
appreciate the greatest artists in the world,
that it is something of an insult, not to say
a downright bore, to be forced to listen to
the raw performance of a society miss or
musical matron. Nobody caros to hear
Miss So-and-So jilay one of Chopin’s over
tures, unless it be the young lady’s family.
We have paid our money aud thought the
priae cheap for the privilege of listening to
the marvelous performance of a Rubinstein
or a Von Billow. By this it is certafcly
not intended to discourage anybody from
taking music lessons or playing on any in
strument whatever. Music should Justly
form a prominent part of the education of
every gill and boy. It is just as import
ant as spelling or arithmetic. One feels
how necessary it is when he attends a Ger
man opera. By all means let us study music
scientifically, occupy ourselves with har
mony and thorough bass, but unless we in
tend to devote our time exclusively to this
resthenc subject, let us play, as wo are sup
posed to pray, in secret. The day when “a
little music after dinner” was considered the
proper thing, when Belle performed portions
of Beethoven’s symphonies and Mary Ann
treated the company to English ballads, is
happily past and gono. A musical hostess
now provides professional talent for her
guests, knowing well that nothing short of
professional talent will satisfy them. And
even iu this respect second-rate porformers
are treated coldly. It must be tho best, or
nothing. We are speaking in general terras,
of course. It is a pleasure now aud then to
hear an amateur who is really an artist.
There are some hall' dozen in New York,
and their existence proves tho rule which
makes amateurs synonymous with minia
ture. Clara Lanza.
A Chronic Tendency Overcome.
Many persons are troubled with a chronic ten
dency to constipation. They are of bilious
temperament. The complaint to which they are
subject, though easily remediable by judicious
treatment, is in many cases aggravated by a
resort to drastic purgatives and cholagogues.
As the human stomach and bowels are lined
with a delicate membrane, and not with vulcan
ite. they cannot stand prolonged drenching with
such medicines without serious injury. Nothing
restores and counteracts an, habitual tendency
to constipation so effectually as Hostetter’s
(stomach Bitters. Its laxative i fleet is gentle
aud progressive. It neither convulses nor
weakens the intestines, aud its effects are unac
companied by griping pains. It arouses the
liver when the organ is sluggish, promotes di
gestion. and encourages appetite and sleep. For
fever and ague, kidney troubles, nervous com
plaints and Incipient rheumatism, it is incom
parable. Take a wlneglas < before meals and see
how soon yon will relish them.
