3K, OPPOSITE THE UNION PAUIF1U lrui.
NkwYokk, Sept. '21. The Herald's
Valparaiso correspondent telegraph as
follows: Ex-President Balmaceda, oi
Chili, Bhot himself through the temple
in his room at the Argentine legation in
Santiago at 8:30 a. m. Saturday. The
story became known here yesterday
afternoon and created the greatest ex
citement. It now seems that Balma-
ceda left Santiago on August 29 in the
hope of making his escape from Chili,
but seeing that every avenue of retreat
waa cut off, he returned there on Sept.
2, and went direct to the Argentine
legation. After the disastrous battle
near Valparaiso and the surrender of
Santiago on Aug. 29, in company with
ex-.a.icaiae v ictor Jcnauren ne toot a
carriage and drove to a point two miles
outside the city. Here a special train
of one car and a locomotive was in wait
ing. The train went at high speed as
far as Linderos, 45 miles south of San
tiago. There more carriages were in
waiting. Hurriedly alighting from the
tram they entered the carriages and
were again driven rapidly away. The
route waa toward San Antonio bay. All
trace of the fugitive was lost. His in
tention had been to go on board the
vessel Condell, which he expected to
find lying in San Antonio bay. Upon
arriving there, however, he discovered
to his chagrin that the ship had sailed.
Since his return to the Argentine lega
tion in bantiago Balmaceda bad been in
Extremely Nervlous Condition.
No one, with the exception of the minis
ter of the Argentine Republic and one
other man who was devoted to the ex-
E resident's cause, were permitted to see
im. All the chances for flight were
considered by the hunted ex-president.
Senor Urriburia went to the theatre
Friday nieht. When he returned to the
legation he had a long and earnest talk
with Balmaceda relative to the latter's
ideas, previously broached, about the
advisability of giving himself nn to thb
junta. Balmaceda and Sehor Urriburia
went to bed at midnicht. Senorita Ur
riburia about 8-Tin.heird a pistol shot
that had been assigned
Balmaceda. She notified her hus
band. Before he went to Balmaceda's
room he ran around to the house of Car
los Walker Martinez and brought that
gentleman oacK to the legation. Upon
ore iking in the door of Balmaceda's
room be round tnat he had snot him
self. The body was still warm. There
was a gaping wound in the temple.
Tho body was undressed and lay on
the bed. The revolver was still in his
band. Domingo Torro, Balmaceda's
brother-in-law, and the minister to
Chili from Uruguay, Arrieta Malchoir
Corletta, soon arrived at the legation.
Senor Concho ran to Moneda and in
formed the junta of what had happened.
A commission was promptly issued.
They went direct to the legation from
the office of the junta's representatives
and viewed the body. They then drew
up a process verbal certifying to the
fact already stated. The German min
ister, Gutschmidt, accompanied the
commission to the legation as an old
friend of Balmaceda. Gradually the
nows spread all over Santiago. The ex
citement it created is indescribable.
Great crowds of terribly excited people
gathered around tho Argentino legation.
They cheered and they hooted and went
into a frenzy over the death of their
chief enemy. Above all the discordant
shouts were heard cries congratulating
the unfortunate Balmaceda, that in tak
ing his own life he had escaped a worse
Balmaceda left the press of the Unit
ed States a statement. As almost the
last declaration of a dying man it is of
especial importance. He says:
I acted all during the last eight months
with the firm conviction that I was right.
I had no one in the army in whom I could
place any trust. My generals were false
to mc. They lied all through the war.
Had my orders been obeyed I believe that
the battle of Concon would have resulted
in a-decisive victory against the enemy.
My heart all through this trouble has been
with Chili. I sought to rescue my coun
try from foreign domination. I strove to
make her the first republic of America.
My enemies say that I was cruel. Circum
stances compelled me to sanction certain
acts, but many deeds that have been at
tributed to my orders were never known
tome until they had been committed.
Until the final battle at Placilla I had
strong hopes of triumphing over my foes.
Victory waa assured by my generals Al
cercia, Barbosa and Viel. They all lied.
I now know those who only pretended
friendship for me because of the money
that was to be gotten out of me. All the
money that I have in my possession is
$2,500. My wife gave it to me on the night
of Aug. 2S. Your minister, Patrick Egan
many times offered me good advice. He
urged me to make peace with those op
posed to me and to retire from Chili. I
did not heed his wise advice, for I thought
ho was under the influence of the junta's
orders, who vjure then refugees in the
American legation. All through the
trouble my closest advisors were always
opposed to any overtures for peace.
Another letter was found addressed tc
Senor Urriburia. In it Balmaceda says.
When I saw the persecution directed
against me by persons who had supported
my administration I came to the conclus
ion that the only way to put an end to
this persecution was to take my life, as 1
was the responsible one. Adios, my good
friend. Give my farewell to my wife and
The junta has the Argentine legation
guarded by troops to prevent an attack
on the part of the populace, but every
thing is quiet at Santiago. Balmaceda's
body has been removed to the general
cemetery. It was accompanied by the
members of the family and friends The
widow of the dead ex-president was in
formed of the tragic ending by hor
brother Domingo Torro. There ia

THE KAISER'S INDISCRETION.
His RefereHe to the "Conican Parvea
TV ai a Blander.
London, Sept. 21. A Berlin dispatch
says that there is much chagrin in court
circles over the kaiser's remark- about
the "Conican parvenu." and that the
kaiser himself sees that he has made
blunder. It was by his own orders that
The Beichanzeiger changed the name to
Corsican conqueror, and a copy of the
r ii i t T
paper, specially marked, has been
ing Huagbert of Italy, whose family
is closely connected with the Bona
partes. It is said, in explanation of the
kaiser's utterance, that he was-carried
away suddenly by the thought of all the
evil that Napoleon had inflicted upon
Prussia, and spoke the words without
due reflection. There is no doubt that
he has, by this epithet cooled many in
fluential and powerful friends, and con
verted others who were only half hos
tile into bitter and determined enemies.
The storm aroused in France shows the
strength of the hold which Napoleon
memory still has on tho French, and
which seems to grow stronger instead
of weakening with years.
Gaatemala and Salvador. ,
San Salvador, Sept. 21. Rumors
have been afloat regarding im
pending trouble between Guatemala
and Salvador. These reports owe theii
origin to the fact that the Guatemalan
government had been welcoming Sal
vadorian emigrants with the intention
of arming them and then putting them
into Salvador's territory to start a rev
olution. The dismissal of Mays from
the war department, taken in connection
with the expulsion of General Plazas
from the country, has confirmed these
reports. These facts, moreover, are
quickly followed by the rumor from
the Guatemala frontier that General
Barillas is massing troops and war
materials on the frontier.

PROTECT OUR BREAD.
The machinery of the law has not been put to work
too speedily against the fraudulent use of ammonia and
alum in Baking- Powders. Both health and the pocket of
the people are demanding protection. The legislatures of
New York, Illinois and Minnesota have taken this matter
of adulteration up, and especially that of Baking Powders.
It will be in the interest of public health when their sale
is made a misdemeanor in every State in the UNION, and
the penalties of the law are rigidly enforced. There is no
article of human food more wickedly adulterated than that
of Baking Powder. "
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is the only pure
cream of tartar powder having a general sale that is free
from ammonia, alum or taint of any kind of impurity. It
makes the sweetest and lightest bread, biscuit and cake
that are perfectly digestible whether hot or cold. It costs
more' to manufacture Dr. Price's than any other baking
powder. It is superior to every ptlier known and tho
standard for forty years.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re
ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia,
Alum, or any other adulterant. In fact, the
purity of this ideal powder has never been questioned.

WEST VIRGINIANS SWINDLED
On a Scheme That Mad Doss Wouldn't
Snap At Wisconsin's State Constitu
tion Stolen Attempted Train Wreck
ing The Murder Record.
Saratoga, Sept. 21. Mra. Harriet
Beach, who lately sent a letter to the
governor of the New York hospital, re
citing her imprisonment in Blooming
dala asylum and her release by the su
preme court as eane and unlawfully
confined, on a habeas corpus obtained by
the Lunacy Law Reform League and
Anti-kidnaping union, has sent the
government some strong comments on
the asylum superintendent's published
defense of himself and his subordinates
She says Dr. Lyons' defense is false and
worthless and that he makes admissions
very damaging to himself. She then de
nies specifically his statement that he
saw her the day she was taken to the
asylum and that she was insane then;
that she was released before the habeas
corpus was served; that she was not pre
vented from communicating with any
proper person and that her belief in
Spiritualism was the cause of her im
prisonment. She then points out Dr.
Lyons' admission that she need
ed no medicine and was not
insane except as to spiritualism,
and states that her belief did not change
at all while in the asylum. She observes
that Dr. Lyons admits that all the time
the habeas corpus was served he knew
she was not insane, but points to the
fact that he kept her imprisoned till the
writ forced him to do otherwise. Also
that be admits that he kept her im
prisoned because of religious, opinions
and that he deems imprisonment the
proper treatment for religious beliefs
which he does not share,and that he has
inflicted such treatment on her and pro
poses to inflict it on others at every op
portunity. She concludes by calling
upon the governor to dismiss Dr. Lyons
and his accomplices, and calls special
attention to the startling fact that the
doctor's own reports show that his treat
ment fails to cure in nine-tenths of th
cases under his care.
An Astounding Swindle.
Charlestown, "W. Va., Sept. 21.
One of the most astounding swi ndles in
the history of the country has just been
brought to light here by federal de
tectives, who have arrested Henry Ash
and George W. Sose, two of three ring
leaders. Robert F. Lively, the man
who originated the scheme, escaped to
the mountains, but a posse is after him.
Some weeks ago these three men or
ganized at St. Albans, this county, a
branch of what was alleged to be the
"National Assemblv," said by the con
spirators to be a patriotic order, having
for its object the relief of the national
government. It was proposed to put in
possession of the government the gold
coin hoarded up by the people, to the
end that the government might be en
abled to meet its obligation and ba saved
from national repudiation. The treas
ury department, it was explained, had
plenty "of paper money, and had agreed
tnat for all tne sola coins paid into the
assembly and certified by the officers,
there would bo paid hve time3 the sum
in paper currency. Nothing less than
$200 would be accepted from anyone
The thing took in a surprising way.
The country was scoured for gold. One
man paid in $1,200, another fSOO, and
scores gave $200 to $500 for the worth
less "certificates" of the swindlers. The
Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad company
paid its employes in gold, and large
sums of this money went into the cotters
of Lively and his pals. Poor men bor
rowed, begged and mortgaged that they
might raise gold, and many a dollar
of hard-earned savings went into the
local assemblies for tho relief of the
government. The postoffice authorities
got wind of the thing and the arrests
were made. The excitement over the
swindle is great. It is estimated that
tho swindlers obtained over $50,000
from their dupes, many of whom are
Kpp Murderer Captured.
Norfolk, Va., Sept. 21. Sergeant
Cn thrill of the police force has received
a message from the sheriff of Elizabeth
City, in which he states that Royster,
the murderer of young Epp3, the tele
graph operator at Suffolk, a month ago,
had been arrested. He was captured
upon a Brazilian steamship, and it is
presumed he embarked on the steamei
shortly after the crime was committed.
His capture was effected in mid-ocean
by officers on an English cutter.
"Wisconsin's State Constitution Stolen.
. Madison, Sept. 21. The discovery
was made by the state officers that the
original draft of the state constitution
is missing. A careful search has been

Three Men Injurrrt and Twenty freight
Cars and Their I.iilt llurned.
Greensbukg, Pa., Sept. 21. A bad
freight wreck occurred on tho Pennsyl
vania road, ia which Fireman Rogers,
Engineer Crawford and Erakemau Stan
ley were seriously hurt and forty cara
and an engine demolished. Ths wreck
was caused by the breaking in two of a
west bound freight train cu a steep
down grade and the two p;;?Js of the
ain coining torretuer nn with a ter
rific force. Tho wreckage was scattered
over both tracks. At this moment an
e&st-bonnd freight train running at a
high rate of speed, camo along and
crashed into the wrecked west-bound
train. The engine of the east-bound
train together with twenty cars laden
with hogs and merchandise, rolled over
the embankment. Fireman Roirers of
the east-bound train went down the em
bankment tinder tho mass of wreckage.
His escape from instant death was
miraculous, but after four hours' hard
work he was rescued from the busre
mass of debris badly cut and bruised
Shortly after Rogers' rescne tho debris
took tire, the bodies of the dead hogs
and a large amount of merchandise wa3
burned. The loss will be pretty heavv.
No blame is attached to the crew of
either tain, as the accident was one of
the unavoidable kind.

Ex-Congressman William L. Scott.
Newport, R. I., Sept. 21. Ex-Con-
grcssman W. L. Scott is dead. His de
mise was very sudden and occurred
shortly before midnight Saturday. Mr.
Scott had long been a sufferer from
acute gastro intestinal catarrh, and two
weeks ago he wa3 brought here from
home in Erie, Pa., the doctors being of
tho opinion that the climate of Newport
would be beneficial. This belief was
realized, for he began to gain at once
and his improvement continued till
Friday. During the afternoon of that
day he had an attack of heart failure
and another on Saturday, rallying quite
easily tue urst time, but with more dif
ficulty on the second occasion. Another
attack occurred at 1 1 o'clock Saturday
night, from which he could not ba re
vived and death finally ensued. Dr.
William Pepper, who has attended Mr.
Scott during his illness, said the death
of that gentleman waa sudden and un
expected and was due to repeated heart
railnres, nis gastric trouble having im

A REBEL BULLET CUT HIM DOWN.
Mourned ax Iead While Prisoner at Ilelle
Isle ami Anderson vllle and aIIngor-On
at Sontheru Almshouses At the Old
Washington, Sept. 21. One of the
most remarkable and pathetic cases that
has ever been brought to the attention
of the bureau of pensions is that of
William Newby, a private of company
D, Fortieth regiment Illinois volunteers.
This company was commanded by the
heroic Colonel Stephen G. Hicks and
was conspicuous for its gallantry at the
battle of Shiloh. Newby was in thi
battle on the Gth of April, 1862, and was
reported killed in action. It seems,
however, that instead of being killed he
received a severe wound in the head and
was captured and sent to the rear by
the Confederate forces, and was im
prisoned at Belle Isle and afterwards
transferred to Andersonville. It seems
that Newby was released in course ot
time and was in poorhouses in various
parts of the south. He was finally taken
to Key West, Fla., by a gentleman who
recognized in Newby a kinsman. Here
he remained until some time in 1S69,
when his uncle died. Newby wandered
from place to placo and finally turned
up at Shreveport, La. While there the
colored people made np a purse and he
was given passage on a steamboat t
Cincinnati. On the wav nn the river
steamboat landed at Shawneetown,
off the boat.

Ills. Newby hearing this
out seemea to recognize
was familiar and got
From here he wandered to Kankakee,
Ills., where he was in the poorhouse for
a time; leaving this place he struck out
southward and at last reached McLeans
boro, Hamilton county, His., and was
sent to the poorhouse. During these
years he was in a demented
state bordering upon insanity,
as the supposed result of the wound in
the head. In wandering about he final
ly went over into White county, and
when ho got near his old home was seen
and recognized by two of his comrades
who had served in the regiment with
him. His wife was sent for and she
identified him, as did his relatives and
many t his friends and comrades.
After Newby was reported as killed in
action, his wife applied for a pension
and it was granted, and she has been
drawing a widow's pension from the
date of his reported death to the present
time. This soldier has filed, a claim for
a pension and it is now receiving the
consideration of the office, the claim of
the widow being suspended in the
meantime. No discharge has ever been
granted to tho soldier, and the consid
eration of the pension claim is being
postponed nntil such time as the secre
tary of war shall grant the man a dis
cbarge. This soldier has been separated
from his family for twenty-nine years,
they believing all the while that he was
dead, and now he turns np a forlorn,
demented old man. His case has excit
ed the sympathy of all who have become
acquainted with it. He recently attend
ed a large meeting of old veterans of hia
county, where the subject was uni
versally discussed. The pension will no
doubt soon be granted and he will re
ceive a sufficient sum to smooth his way
to the end of his life.
