New York, Ju'y 23. The Star states
that the te'atives of Jeremiah Coun
sellor, the Newark man who died of
apoplexy on the Brooklyn bridge on
Monday morning, seem to have been
greatly surprised ti har that the de

When George A. Meaker, of Newark,
a son-in-law of ttie deceased, reached
the station and hard of this young
lady, he pre mp ly denied that sbe whs
Mr. Counsellors adopted daughter,
and said that be and his wile had
never heaid of any of the Donning-
tons. Yesterday Mrs. Meeker and htr
husband disensspu toe claims ol tbe
Donuinstn family with a great deal
"I know nothing of Miss Donning'
ton." said Mis. Mteker, ' and 1 never

home and told me of tbe way she had
acted in the police station. My father
never mad a any reference to her, and
if he had a lorted her I certs inly think
that he would bave told me and ray
sister, who were 60 much interested.
Sbe ceitatnly has no claims on my
lather, and if she Bbould put in any
against his proper!y, wa will ceita'nly
fiebt it. Oa tsnurday, when my
father left here, he tild ui tbat
he was going to spend Sun
dav at Oc;an tirov. We did not
know that he was visiting Brooklyn
until we heatd tbat he wbb dead.
bave given orders that this woman
shall not te- admitted to the house or
be allowed to attend the funeial on
Friday. My father was once quite
wealthy, but he lost nearly ail his for
tune in Wall street on 'Black Friday.'
I have no idea what my father s rela
tions with this girl were. My hus
band caw ber plainly at the station
house and be eays tint we do not
know Ler. There is some mystery
about tbe whole affair which will have
to be broueht to lieht."
Mr. Meeker indoned bis wife's
ttatment8. and added: "I think the
whole scheme on this woman s part is
to set up a claim to Mr. Uousei:or s es
tale. He has probably led her to be
lieve that he was quite wealthy.
About two years pgn 1 heard a rumor
of visits to Miss Danningtoa, who
wai then in Newark, and asked him
about it. He pcoh-poohed the who'e
thing, and said tbat he had no idea of
adopting her. I told bim tbat I
hopsd not, as I thought he had
enorjch children of h's own."
These ttatemects of the rela ives of
the deceased man add greatly to the
mystery tbat seems to have enveloped
his life, kitting composed y in the
parlor of No. 104 G.iat jn avenue yes
terday, Mis. Donnington, a veiy small
and gentle faced old lady, Jiatennd witn
surprise while she was told what, had
been said of her daughter by Mr. and
"-1 don't kow what tbey mean by
saying that they don't know us. That
is false, for they have known my
daughter for years. Why, I have a
note today from Nellie Counsellor ad
dressed 'to 'Mrs. Donnington and
daughters,' in which she expresses ber
sonow tbat oar name shcu'd bave
been dragged into public print as it
hap. Mr. Counsellor took Ursula to
see Nellie frequently, and he also took
ber to see Mrs. Meeker. I don't know
what thefr object is, unless tbey are
afraid that we want some of his prop
erty." "Does Mirs Donnington intend to
make any oiaim against the estate?"
"Upon what ground ?"
"I do not care to discuss it."
"Misi Donnington at the police
station said that Mr.-Counsellor loved
her so that he had ineured his life in
her favor for f 60,000. Is that correct,"
"I judge so." -
When asked to explainwhy Mr,
Counsellor made so many visits to
tbeir house, Mrs. Donnington replied:
"Well, he was a great friend of my
'husband, and when my husband died
Mr. Counsellor took a great deal of
interest in us. He knew Prof. Layton
of tbe High School in Brooklyn, and
after talking with him we decided
that it would be beet for Ursuia to go
to a Brooklyn echcol So we moved
bete la t January, and Ursuia entered
the gtammar school, where she
graduated in June. Mr. Coucsellor
was a good friend to us; bis visits here
were of a eociil character, and all the
children called him 'uncle.' I am
sure that he never deemed tbe New
ark family, and I can't understand
how they can stand over his corps 3
and make snt)h an assertion."
"Did Mr. Counsellor ever tell you
that he was going to make his will in
your favor and for your daughter's
- "No ; he told me that he had made
his will, but be would not talk to any
one about it, I am sure."
"Was Mr. Counsellor known at the
corner grocery as Mr. Donnington?"
"I really don't know. He was not
shamed of his name you know it is
a very old and proud one but he fre
quently went to ttie corn r to buy us
things, and the man mcy have sup
posed his name was Mr. Donnington."
The house in which fie Donning
tons live is in a fashionable neighbor
hood and Mauds back from tbe etreet,
with a yard in front of it. The furni
ture is elegant. Last night the three
daughters, dressed in white, sat around
the parlors discuss ng Mr. Counsellor.
MissUisala is a very handsome girl,
unusually tall and stately, with a
g:ac;efully rounded figure. In referring
to Mr. Counsellor she spoke jcith evi
"I have been advised not to talk to
reporters," she said, "and I most
therefore decline to eay more than
that Mr. Counsellor was a dear friend,
and that he leerred like a eecond
father to me. He told me tbat I was
his adopted daughter, and tbat he had
insured fcis life in my favor for JtiO,
OC0. I know the Meeker?, and tfiey
know me, I am sure. Tbe fdet that
Nellie wrote tons today Bhows that
she at least knows us."
All the neikhbnrs in the vicinity of
Mr. Counsellor's Brooklyn home seem
convinced tbat there was some mys
tery in his life, and eagerly sccept the
theory that he led one life iu Newark
ard another in their niicV. Dr. E. 11.
Knight, of No. 83 Clinton avenue, was
very non-committal yesterday. His
wife said ahe understood tbat Mr.
Counsellor had ineured bis life in Miss
Ursula's favor. "He rame to Brooklyn
as often as he di t (imply to pay
friendly visits to tk Douningtons,
she said. "The house waa probabl
pi- aaant to the old rum. who lived a!
alone in Newt rk, and he came here to
spend his Sandays in order to gst fresh
air and escape tae Jersey moequi
toes." Trie proprietor of the grocery etore
on the corner of Ulittin and rark ave
nuee, when asked about the orders be
bad received from his customers at the
house No. 104 Clinton avenue, showed
his ledger, where, under the name of
" W. Donnington," weie charged along
Hit ol articles.
"I always knew the gentleman as
Mr. Donnington," he said, "and I am
sure that everybody supposed that he
was tbe gentleman ct the house.
When Mr. Ccursel'or's body was
searched in the pol ce station a'ter
death the officers fuun I cimng things
that be carried in h's pocketbook a
well worn photograph it a girl who
was afterwards identified as Miss Don-
ninaton. There is ample evidence t3
show tbat he was a constant visitor at
the house from Msy up to tbe time of
bis death. Ike JJonningtons live a
very secluded life, do not associate
much with tbe neighbors, and all
thtee girls are handsome and drers
richly. Mr. Counsellor was promi

To the Editors of tha Appeal:
Oxford, Miss., July 22. In yester
day's Appeal appeared two articlo3,
one by Herring, of Water Va'ley, and
the other by "tiaxet," both of which
were to me of unusual interest, be
cause, in my judgment, they were
nearer the mark iu reference to the
late unpleasantness in oor Stat9 Uni
versity than any, or all, of the hetero
geneous articles written heretofore.
Two things are to be deplored in tbe
discussions which have been going on
for eevetal weeks in refuience to this
matter. First, there has been too
much written and said, and tbat often
bv parties poorly prepared to know
whereof thty wrote or (poke. Much
tbat has been said has been Irrelevant
to the matter under controversy, and
too much circumlocution has been in
dulged in by those who ought to have
known tbe real cause of the disaffec
tion which hes existed in the
uoiveraity fcr some years and
bave bad the manliness of "Saxet"
to speak out tbe truth. The second
thing to be deplored is the denomina
tional sectionalism which much of the
correspondence assumed. I am a
strict adherent of one ot the largest
denominations represented in tbe
university, but I would not give utter
ance to some things which have been
published in tbe papers, though my
denomination has not a single repre
sentative in the university or on the
Board of Trustees. A gieat institu
tion like this will not tipple into the
abyss of oblivion upon the pivot of
denominat onal tenets. It has a State
wide foundation upon which to rest.
I exceedingly regret tbe late action of
the trustees in turning out the oldest,
and beyond question tbe mora intelli
gent membeia of the faculty. I haie
the most prefjund respect for every
member of the faculty, and would no:
ut'.er a harsh word against one of
them, but a graduate of the univer
sity, and now a leading member of
tbe bar, and one of Mississippi's
most gifted or a' ore, said in my pres
ence tbat the board had turned out
the brains of the university and re
tained the mediocie. If this be
true it falls as a thunderbolt
of reflection upon the competency of
the board ts judge of competency.
Tbe writer was a student in tbe uni
versity in 1884 and 1885, and not being
a mere beardless boy in his early
teens, but long settled into manhood
before entering the university, he can
not believe that in watching the
course of the university while a stu
dent and the year he has been out,
that it was done from the standpoint
of a young "hot blood" who wants no
disciplinary restraints put upon him,
but who wishes to roam unchallenged
at pleasure in the g eat domain of
you'hful freedom and indu'genue.
After mixing with the students irom
day to day for nearly two years, and
having bad much social intercourse
with them tbe year I have been out,
and all the while hearing expressions
of opinion relative to the offensive
features of the university, coupling
with them my own observations as a
student and citiien of Oxford, I think
I am prepared to express an opinion
as to the cauee or causes of the disaf
fection which has existed in the
student body for the last few yeais,
and especially the last.
Uoeducat'On has had something to
do with it, but the main cause, as it
teems to me, as well as many others
equally as competent to judge, is the
want of a competent chancellir. In
making th's assertion, I do not only
agree wi h "Saxet," bat vo ce the sen
timent of every impartial and 1b f irmi d
mind. I mean by "competent, a
man not so far removed from the stu
dent body but that there may be a
little assimilation or, perhaps, con
geniality would be a better word. Mili
tary reaime, set off with tboee spark
ling gems of courtesy, kindness and,
above all, anamnty, is not objection
able. But for a student to Lave been
under a chancellor for two years and
not be known to tbe chancellor, basi's
own explanation. Why not have the
honesty and candor to tell the truth.
unless we preter the rum of a grand
institution to the depriving of an in
competent man of well raying posi
tion. The crisis is only fiv riavs riff.

IXFLICTS NAMELESS TORTURES
ITOX A CHILD,
And Teaches It to Use the Yilent
Language Toward Her Husband
Cincinnati, O., July 23. The En
quirer $ Detroit correspondent tele
graphs that Mrs. J. J. England, of tbat
city, has filed a petition in the Probate
Cou't this morning for the appoint
ment of CM. Stocking, agent for the
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Ohiidren and Animals, as guardian
tor a nve year old adopted son ol U. e,
HuJsMi, of Po. 140 LocuU struct
Mrp. England ia a neighbor of Hud
sin's. Her petition sets forth tbat
' Mrs. Hudson is not a tit person to have
the custody of tbe child. Mrs. Kne
land's action is taken at the w'sh and
by the advice of the society. The case
is one cf inhuman cruelty. The Hud-
smis move in gocd socitty in Detroit.
Mr. Hud-ion ia a prominent attache in
i lie custom nouso and well known in
The story of the child's ill treat
ment, a) related by Mr. Stocking, is a
nana ive of fiendish brutality that
would be incredib'e if not proved by
tbe testimony of a lotrnar domestic in
the Hudson family and other eye w it
necse?, including Mr. Hudson himself,
who Baems to have been utterly un
able to prevent it. This domestic says
that Mrs. Hudson was in tbe habit of
swearing at the child and oiling it the
vilest names. It was not an unfre
quent thing for hr ti say do this or
do that, "you little bastard." On
one occas on tbe little fellow - was
asleep in bed and Mrs Hudson went
to bis loom and told bim that she was
the devil and hid come to kill him.
"All right," replied the boy. Mrs,
Hudson of en made him stand up in
fiont of her for hours at a time when
she was at work. The lad made no
complaint. On one occasion, after he
had stood there for two or three hours,
she said;. ''You hate me,doD't you? '
"Mo, mamma, replied the boy.
"That's a lie," screamed the woman,
"and I will whip you for it. And
then she gave him a teriibe beating
with a piece of barrel etave that she
kept tor tbat purpose.
t he boy made - no outcry. In fact
te never whimpered or cried when she
was inflicting the severest kind of pun
isbment upon him. One of her favor
ite modes of punishment was to double
him up with his bead between bis
legs, tie him in that position, place
him in the bath tub, and then turn the
water on him. If he kicked or ei uirm-
ed she would take him out and beat
him until his back was black and blue.
Another method of punishment was to
tie bis hands behind nis bead and
place him in the dark cellar, where
she would keep him for houts at a
The boy was on several different oc
casions made to stand in the corner of
the room with bis faca pushed up
asamst tha wall lor nourd at a time.
Mrs. Hudson would sit where she
could eea him and every ones in a
wbile would call out: "Push harder;
I can tell when you are not pressing
had," and the tuffdring child wou'd
push so hard that his ncse- would be
almost flattened out. Another method
of torture was to make the boy bite
his own tongue, and Mrs. Hudson
would compel him to do this until his
tongue would swell up double its natu
It seems, the domestic sayj, as if the
woman was continually tacking her
brain to find some new and fiendish
mode of punishment. . Tbe domestic
on one occasion asked Hudson why
he didn't take the boy s part. He re
plied tbat he bad received very severe
treatment already for presuming tq, in
terfere, and could show tbe marks to
Erove it. At one lime Mrs. Hudtou
it the boy's noH a until it swelled up
twice its natural siz. One day at the
(able s j6 drew a knife across his no-
gets, cutting two of them, and after
ward aud she wished she bad cut
them all off. She would s'ap his
mouth until his lips swelled up, and
then she would call bim "nigger
mouth," and pinch them until they
bled. She kept him in bed several
days as a punishment, and told gome
of the neighbors that the feared he
bad scarlet fever. Then sbe rep?a'.ed
this to the child, and said she wished
it was true, because be would die and
she would have a ride to his funeral.
"One day." said Mr. Hudson. "I
got the child to confess that he had
been punished. Mrs. Hudson found
it out next morning and whipped the
child again. Then she made him stand
in tbe door when 1 came borne at
evening and cay as soon aa I came
within speaking distance: 'IN one ot
your Dusinesa. wnat,u:arence r
said I, and tbo cbild repeated it time
times. On the 6th of July or the day
after the child was cruelly treated
beyond description, and Mrs. Hudson
talked like one obsessed She said:
Now. here you set it. my boy : you're
abaBtard, you Q d little s of a
b ; you never nad a father or any
mother.' Then ehe put him in the
tub, held his face under the faucet and
turned the water on."
Mr. Hudson at different times has
actually been forced by Mrs. Hudson
to whip the child himself, just after
she had done so. la fact, the woman
seems to te a fiend incarnate.
'How do you account for Mrs. Hud
son's ciuelty ?" was asked of Mr. Hud
son. ''Much of it was caused bv pure
deviliahness," be replied. "I have
tried very hard to be charitable, and
lay lb w iiidii, uuk umnccu ;uu
and me, 1 don't think she is insane,
although there is no doubt that in
sanity runs in the family."
Mrs. Hudeon is at present in Chica
go, and has taken the cbild with ber.
No further steps can be taken in the
Probate Court until her return.
