Following the publication In yesterday'"!
Republic of the disappearance of the Mni
lerlng family from their home in the suburb
of Lindenwcod at th southwest cornr of
,t Ixmls. A W. Mcwes of the Gleason
Stoddard Dmrloment Agencv. No. 113 North
Sixth street, appeared at the Four Courts
and notified the authorities that a nvin
nii.wrriiig Mull-Tina's description had been
given employment by his agency on the new
Terminal belt line north of the city. Mcwes
teld the officers that he had read the story
in The Republic and was quite sure that
the docriotlon printed was that of the
man who had been given work on the rail
road. Acting on thin Information specH!
oilicers went to the place referred to lv
Mewes and there found Mullering. The lat
ter was p'aceil under arrest and taken to
the Mounted District Folic? Station, where
he underwent a vigorous process of "sweat
ing" by Captain McN'amee and Special Of
ficers Kirk and Gibbon.
In reply to all questions concrning the
whereabouts of his wife and child Muller
ing declared that he knew no more about
the matter than did the police themselves.
When told that his neighbors had accused
him of having killed his wife and daughter
Mullering flew Into a rage and exclaimed at
the top of his vole?:
. "They lie. they lie! If you think I killed
my wife hang me now. Do whatever you
want with me If you think I commltteJ
MLLLEUIXO J.AYS XKIGUUORS
LIED ABOUT HIM.
Later, when confronted by Jgsepli Port
ner. whose family now occupies the for
mer Mullering homestead, and asked to re
call certain statements which he Is alleged
to have made shortly after his wife's dis
appearance, the pilsoner Jumped from his
chair and declared in tones of wild excite
ment that Portner and others had lied
about him to the police and that he had
made none of the statements which had
been credited to him. The statements which
he denied having made were In reference
to his having used a shotgun on the morn
ing of his wife's disappearance.
An Important point brought out by the
"sweating," and one which la decidedly in
Mullering's favor, was the fact that on the
day following his wife's disappearance Mul-
.rwi.K weni 10 tne German newspapers ol
the city and requested that pictures of the
missing persons be published in the hope
that It would lead to their r covcry. The
pictures were published and for several
days afterwards Mullering fairly haunted
the newspaper offices and police headquar
ters seeking information of the missing
To Special Officer Kirk Mullering stated
that on two occasions since the disappear
ance of his wife he had placed a revolver
to his head with the Intention of killing
himself. "I Just want to find out whether
my wife is alive or not. If she is dead
then I do not want to live longer," Muller
ing said to Captain McNamee. Later he
stated that he -was sure his wife is alive
and that when sho learns of his arrest she
will coma forward and clear up the whole
mystery. Several times in the process of
sweating" Mullering wept.
"And to think that I should be accused
of killing my wife and child." He tobbed.
vie have been married sixteen years and
never had a quarrel until the day she al
lowed the chickens to run over my vegeta
ble garden. Then because I scolded her
for it she left me.
"Everything the neighbors have said
about me since I left Lindenwood Is with
out foundation. They have told nothing
uu. .. una u my wue w.u only come out
the truth will be learned.'"
When asked if he would take his wife and
child back in case they were located, Mul
lering replied most eagerly. "Yes." Then
..c ..uueu; 11 sne nas not violated the
law, I will take her back."
No amount of questioning would Induce
the prisoner to go back on his statement
that he knows nothing concerning his wife's
whereabouts. Time and again ho was
tripped up in statements regarding minor
details which bore a distant relation to the
disappearance. He was asked why he had
.I.U..U jvaiuoer. me Diacksmlth at
Old Manchester and Watson roads, that
1"i""1 """ n uwuneyer) as a witness,
and he replied that he thought his wife
may have committed suicide, and he wanted
Kameyer to prove that he was in the black
smith shop tho morning of her disappear
ance, and thereby prove an alibi in the
event of his being held for her death.
Mullering said he had made every effort
to locate his wife and daughter; that he
had visited the homes of all her friends;
had gone to all the employment agencies
where she Is acquainted, and had watched
the newspapers most carefully to see If any
trace of her had been found. Asked If he
had visited the morgue, he said no.
HAS SOT BEE.V TIIYIXG TO
ELUDE THE rOLICE.
He slated that a carpenter named Lange.
whose address he did not know, had told
him that he paw Mrs. Mullering and her
daughter in the neighborhood of tho rail
road station at Lindenwood the morning of
the disappearance. Captain McNamee in
structed Special Officer Kirk to try and find
Lange and verify the statement.
Shortly after his wife's disappearance
Mullering said, he went to Mitchell, HI., in
the hope of obtaining employment. He had
plenty of money, he said, when he started,
but that he lost it all In gambling. He said
he had several hundred dollars when he
left St. Louis. He had been working as
night watchman in the toolhouse on the
belt line since last Saturday morning. He
denied that he had been eluding the officers,
and stated that on the contrary he had giv
en his address to Assistant Chief of Detec
tives Smith, to whom he had reported his
Several hours were consumed in ques
tioning Mullering. but the police failed to
obtain anything from him which might
serve to clear the mystey surrounding the
disappearance of his wife and daughter. It
developed, however, that the furniture
which Mullering sold to Portner is mort
gaged, but as the articles were not Included
in the bill of sale no charge was placed
against him. After the sweating Muller
ing was locked in a cell to be held twenty
fours hours, the time allowed by law for
the detention of suspects. Special Officers
Kirk and Gibbon made another visit to
Lindenwood yesterday, but were unable to
learn anything new about the case.

EX-SENATOR STATES POINTS ON
Xew York, June ID. Democratic unity
was the keynote to-night of a great jrath-eplng-
of representative Democrats, who had
come to attend the opening of the band
some new quarters of the Tilden Club.
Addresses were made by prominent D m-
ocrats. and afterwards a collation was
served In the banquet hall to tho distin
guished guests of the evening, and a bufCn.
bupper was served In the basement for the
rank and file
To the Democrats the event was one of
'hs roost memorable for many a day. as
Grcver Cleveland and David B. Hill met in
harmony, seeking to draw the factions of
their party together. It was the tirst pub
lic political appearance of the ex-President
in five years. He spoke first. ex-Senator
Hill spoko after blm and then Governor A.
J. Montagu of Test Virginia and Colonel
W. A. Gastcn of Boston delivered addresses.
W. J. Bryan had been Invited to aitond,
though not to speak, and no reply was re
ceived from him.
Hill and Cleveland Shake Hands.
Cleveland arrived at the clubhouse (
accompanied by II. D. Hotchklss, Doctor
Joseph E. Bryant and John C. Calhoun. He
had scarcely got into tho building when ex
Senator Dald B. Hill, accompanied by 1
Laflin Kellogg, came In. Mr. Hill's eye
caught Mr. Cleveland as soon as he had

There was tremendous applause as Sir.

address he said

Perhaps there are those who would define my

have none to make; nor do I crave political
absolution. I am here to take counsel with

cerning the Democratic situation.
I suppoae we are all convinced that this situa

think It 1 perilously undermined. Whatever
the measure of its impairment may he. our con

Th4 Demcciatic party is very far from p-1 tical
insolvency, but no one here should be offended
by the suggestion that Its capital and prospects
have suffered serious Injury since Mr. Tilden
was elected iTesiaent. if tms state of impair-
ment exists, an instant fluty presses upon the .
managers of the Democratic establishment, and
one which they cannot evade with honor. Thosa
of us less prominent In the party the rank and
file are lonslng- to b led through old Democratic
ways to oia uemocraiic victories. we were
never more ready to do enthusiastic battle than
now. If we can only be marshaled outflde the
shadow of predestined defeat.
I it too much to ask oar leaders to avoid
paths that are known to lead to disaster? Is It
too much to ask that proven errors be aban
doned, and that we. be delivered from a body of
death and relieved from the burden of Issues
which have been killed by the decrees of the
American people? Ousht we not to b be fed
upon sometninr better than the husks of defeat "
If these questions are met in an honest, manly
fashion. 1 believe it will be productive of the
best kind of Democratic harmony.
Democracy's Doctrlue Heady.
Democracy has already in store the doctrines
for which it flnhts its ruccessful battle, and
It will have them In Etore as lone as the people
are kept from their own. and Just as lone as
their rishU and interests are sacrificed hv fa
voritism In Government care, by inequality of
Government burdens, by the ercouracement of
huge Industrial as k re Rations that throttle lndl
vidua! enterprtue, by the reckless waste of public
money, and by the (greatest of all injurle. a
It underlies nearly all others, a system of tariff
taxation, whose robbing: exactions are far beyond
th needs of economical and legitimate jrovern
ment expenditures, which purchase support by
appeals to sordldness and (treed, and which con
tinually corrupts the public conscience.
What but the infatuation with the vlsajre of
defeat can explain the subordination of the-
thinis by Democrats when they prepare for bat
My davs of political activity are past, and I

the DTnocr-cy that deserves and wins success.
At the point in his speech where Mr.
Cleveland announced his absolute retire

next, wns received almost as en thus I aa tic

John T. Rapp Ik no longer principal of
the Fferfiuson School on the Olive street
road. John Grueninger, Sr., president oT
Hoard of Directors of that district, said
yesterday that the board decided last week
to declare the position vacant.
The ,ic t ion of the board followed com
plaints that had been made by Lena Jacobs,
a 14-year-old girl, and her father, Charles
Jacobs, who I? foreman of the Lamb quar
ry In St. Iuis County. Lena wasa pupil
in the Ferguson School and claimed that
she had been treated in an unjust manner
by her principal nearly a month ago. TTi
Ioard of Directors consists of Mr. Gruen
ipger, Owen Hannon and Fred Stille. It
seems that her statements were first made
to Mr. Stille. who considered them of suf
ficient Importance to call a special meeting
of the board. At this meeting it was de
cided to declare the place of principal va
cant. Mr. Jacobs concluded, however, not to let
the matter ret there. He engaged Attorney
D. C Taylor of Maifehes-ter and they went
to Clayton and requested the authorities
there to take Fome action. Jacobs ha made
several visits to the county seat. The last
time was Wednesday, and he took his
daughter with him. They called on John
1 U. Warfleld the assistant State's attorney.
who told them to o before Justice Greens
J felder and make an aiildavit. They did not
j do HO.
was considerable foellnjr over the matter
by the patrons of the district.
Mr. Rapp dtclares- that the statements
made against him are not true, and that he
will prove his statements at the proper
time. He frays he wa pre?cnt at the meet
ing of th Hoard of Directors to meet the
complainants and disprove their statements,
but they did not appear.
