X STORY STRANGER THAN FICTION.
Deserted in New York, Separated,
but Brought Together Again.
THEY FINALLY HARRY AND INHERIT.
A Letter, Written After the Waif and
Painter's Apprentice Had Grown to
Manhood, Unravels a Mystery,
Kansas C'itv. Mo , Nov. 11. A start
ling story Is told by Detective Matson of
London, Ont., concerning n young mir
jieit couple, whose recent residence was
In Kansas City, Kan. Matson arrived
In this city on Saturday In search of Asa
and Louisa Uarr. who arc not only bus
bnml nnd wife, but brother and sister
nnil heirs to a vast fortune In Kngland.
The circumstances surrounding the
case arc very peculiar, nnd Ihc detective
whs sent here by friends of the young
couple, who had discovered their where
abouts, to notify them of the sad plight.
The dolcctlvo failed to find the couple
here, but found llicy had recently gone
to Ontario, where they will soon, no
doubt, bicomc nwarc of their situation.
THE DKTniTIVK's STOltV.
At the Hotel Darker, In Knnsns City,
Knu.. yesterday afternoon, Detective
Matson revealed the details of the
story. "About twenty-four yoars ago,"
said tbo detective, "two deserted babes
were found by the police In Castle
Garden and turned over to the Home of
the riienilless In New York city. Evi
dently the two were twins, for. besldos
looking exactly alike (one being n girl
nnd the other a boy), n note was found
In 11 basket left with the children stat
ing so, nnd also that they were I vcar
COCI.PVt TIlXtK TUB l'AIIEXTS.
"This waR all the Information that
wm to be had. Consequently their
parents could not he traced. They re
mained in the Home of the Friendless
until they were about !1 year of age,
when they were adopted by two ladles
who were visiting the institution. The
Kill was adopted by Mrs. Margaret
bcott, a widow, and the bov by Mr. nnd
Mis. James Uarr. These two families
being neighbors In the city of Xew
York, the children were practically
icarcd together until they arrived at the
Bf e of 1 years.
The Uarr family then moved to
Philadelphia, and by reason of broken
foitunes soon moved away from there,
going to London, Ont. Hy reason of
their ted ill' ed circumstances tt was
found necessary for them to part with
Ihclr adopted son, whom they had
named Asa, and nccordinely he was
turned over to the Home of the Friend
less in Philadelphia.
WITH A I'lllI.UlKU-llIA r.VI.NTEIl.
"Two years later young Asa was
taken Into the family of a painter,
whose name 1 do not recollect, and fol
lowing In the footsteps of his adopted
father be became a painter by trade.
About a year ago. according to a letter
wrltteu by him to James Uarr recently,
he married a young laity named Louisa
Scott, with whom he removed to Kan
sas City. Kan , on account of III
heallh. While working at his trade la
that city, he formed the acquaintance
of a fellow-painter, who seems to have
Informed him that James Uarr and
family llted In London, Ont. Hemem
berlng his early adoption, young Uarr
wrote a letter to that address, stating
bow he had become possessed of the
knowledge that such a man lived in the
city, ami asked him If be was not the
Mine James Uarr who had adopted a
little boy In New York city over twenty
years ago whom he had christened Asa.
If so, he wished to inform him that that
boy bsd grown to manhood ami mar
ried, ami was the writer of the letter.
THE fcTCXSIkfa FEA11KK
"The latter also stated that be bad
married Louisa Scott, giving Ike time
and place of utanUxe. Jame Uarr
received the letter and answered the
same, admitting that be bad adopted
tut'k a boy and stating that if bis story
was 1 rue be should come to London int
mediately, as milters of importance
pertaining to himself and his wife were
at kU disposal. In all probability tke
young couple have gone to Ontario, as
they left Kansas City, Kan., about a

DEATH OF THE PLAYERS' LEAGUE.

Nkw Yonn, Nov. 11. The Trihnne
says: The annual meeting of the 1'laycrs'
League will lie held at Mttebnrg to-day.
The testtlt will be what the New York
baseball public lias hoped for, but with
out any Idea as to whether It would
prove to be debt.
The outcome will be that New York
nnd Urot'klyn will have only one club
nctt season. The crisis 1ms been reached.
The bacucrs of these two clulw have
withstood the onslaughts neatnst them
as long as they could. They have at
last taken a decided stand, and will
withdraw from the Players' League
This will be a death blow to tne 1'laycrs'
League. The backers of these clulw
have offered to sell, and have put a
price on their clubs, but there Is not one
chinco In a million that the minority
capltnlisls can get Iho money.
The pilces were put so high that no
person would think of agreeing to ty
the money. Colorcl McAlpIne will re
sign the presidency. This will be
another blow to the Player' League.
It was he who saved the organization
from going under sercral limes during
the season. At one time he went to
Philadelphia nnd prevented n strike of
tho plnycrs, who refined to go on the
field, ns they had not received their
salaries. McAlpIne guaranteed tbo pity
crsthat he would sec that they received
the money due them. This satl'lloJ
them, and they went on and played.

II1TFAI.0, N. Y.,Nov. 11. The latest
In Ihc confessions concerning the lien
cll murder Is published in the Keening
J'tten to day. It purports to bo from a
man in UulTalo, Is dated here, and post
marked yesterday. The handwriting Is
pinched and unlike that of lllrchall.
The letter Is signed by .1. J. Litchfield,
who does not live hero, and whose name
tic is not appear In the clly directory.
In effect the letter says "I have
walled to give lllrchall his last chance
t defotd himself from the death that
now Hwails him for the crime of which
ho Is Innocent. I am a member of the
conspiracy who dealt with monled
Lugllsbinen who were brought out here
to be robbed of their wealth, and wo also
had an cilice In Cornhlll, London, Log.,
until the arrest of lllrchall. Previous
to our holding our olllce there we hold
it at PcntonvllIeHill, near St. Pancreas'
station, London, and our first victim
was Augustus Atdcrson, oldest son of
V. C. Alderson. rector of Holdenby,
Northampton, Kngland, and who Is
related to Lord Salisbury. We took
him to have money wlih him, ami we
watched him closely during his stay
In Canada, until wo found he had
squandered It all, and then he returned
home. At this time we were working
this alone, for years previous to
Uliehall's coming to this country. I
acknowledge he is Implicated in the
tobbery of llenwell. and that he was
at Kastwood the day of the
murder and that all four of us were at
the Ulenhelm Swamp when Uenwell
and lllrchall came along on February
17. Vc met them ami tried to Induce
Uenwell to swear to assist in our busi
ness or we would kill bun. Uenwell
would not listen or reason with us, ami
we shot blm and then cut his name
from his clothing. We then told
lllrchall to get out of the country ami
gave him what articles we bad taken
from Uenwell. We told lllrchall that
we heel chloroformed Uenwell, and he
did not know that he had been mur
dered." The writer says he has had hard work
to keep oue of the gang from confess
ing. The letter then continues.
"As suie as Uireball dies not one
board shall be left of the buildings of
tke jurymen who sent him there. We
have Judge McMakon spotted and
should we have to wreck a train to
murder blm we will, ami we hereby
notify blm of tke death awaiting him
and the jurymen also."
The lettet conclude'
"If I were to give the history of our
past life it would NU many pagve of the
darkest crime ever known or thought
of in our present day, and should
iUrckall be kung it will wake two mum
executed for our deeds, beskies one
undergoing life Imprisonment."
