Meadville, August l.SeymourHitch
cock and wife, Sarah A., alias Hugie, were
arrested in this city this evening bv Post
office Inspector Kasli, charged with usiug
the mails lor purposes of fraud. Their
scheme was to place an advertisement in a
"Western newspaper, among others a Chi
cago matrimonial paper, to the effect that a
widow of 35 desired a Western correspondent,
with a view to matrimony. The dupes who
answered these advertisements were drawn
into a loving correspondence, helped along
by the picture of a handsome young woman
which wonld be sent in due time.
The object was to work up an engagement
of marriage, get a ring or other presents,
and last of all, a remittance ot money with
which to go to the "Western lover. "When
remittances were received, the dupe would
get a receipt signed "Sarah A. Hitchcock,
per Seymour Hitchcock," which generally
wound him up.
They have operated in Oneonta, N. Y..
Erie, Ashtabula, Oican, Meadville and
other places. Between March and July
they received through the Oneonta postoffice
money orders to the amount of $100 and 19
registered letters. To-day was the first time
in seven weeks that they have called for
their mail here, and the invoice amounted
to 14 letters. The same number are waiting
them in the Ashtabula office.
Hitchcock, who since coming here has be
come a prominent member of the State
Street M. E. Church choir, admits his guilt
and says his wife assisted him under pro
test. Doth are in jail.

IITECIAI. TELEORAM TO TBI DISrATCH.3
Philadelmia, August 1. Dr. Ernest
LaPlace, a celebrated French physician, ar
rived in this city to-night to take the chair
of Pathology in the Medico-Chirurgical
College. DrLaPlace has been for several
years a co-laborer with Pasteur in his lab
oratory, and is a personal friend of Dr.
Brown-Sequard. In an interview concern
ing the success of ex-Surgeon General W.
A. Hammond in experimenting on Dr.
Brown-Sequard's so-called elixir of life, Dr.
"As yet I have no positive opinion with
regard to Dr. Brown-Sequard's success, but
from an spriori standpoint 1 would give it a
fair trial. There is nothing improbable in
the theory, and an immense amount of possi
bility. Looking at it from an analogous
standpoint, I would be disposed to try it,
and try it with a great deal of confidence of
success. There would be no danger attend
ing the experiments. The injection of such
a fluid as Dr. Hammond prepares, under
aseptic conditions, that is, conditions which
exclude the presence of micro-organisms,
would be attended with no danger to the
patient, and, possibly, the nature of said
injection would be such as to possess very
marked and heretofore unknown stimulative
and utilitive effect to the nervous system.
"Now, to prove experimentally that ani
mal matter can be used with impunity
under the skin, Pasteur has for the last four
years treated several thousaud patients
against hydrophobia, bv the sub-cutaneous
injections of the specially prepared spinal
cord of rabbits, without ulceration or similar
"This rejuvenation is not a wild delusion.
Do not think lor an instant of classing it
with the absurd vagaries of the middle
ages. It has much in it to demand the at
tention of the scientist Dr. Brown
Sequard is a great friend of mine, and is
withouttloubt the greatest physiologist in
the world. He is not in his dotage,
as many persons would have us believe, but
is intellectually in the prime of his life, and
his discovery of the magic life-giving elixir
is the product of such a mind. It is no de
lusion, no hallucination, but a well-balanced,
carefully-thought-out problem. Dr.
Hammond has established himself on no
far-fetched promise in assuming Dr. Brown
Sequard's theory," and I am fairly confident
that the experiments, if carried out on care
fully calculated, scientific principles, will
be eminently satisfactory."
SOME CONFLICTING STORIES.
An Allcscd Conspiracy to Boycott tho G. A.
Chicago, August 1. The Chicago Evert
ing Journal this afternoon criticises se
verely the report fnrnished to papers by
the City Press Association of the recent
Grand Army of the Republic meeting in
this city. It also denounces the G. A. K.
representatives themselves for alleged at
tempts to influence the press in the interest of
their boycott of offending railroads. Re
garding the meeting of Department Com
manders Wednesday, which was held for
the nurnose of considering the advisahilitv
of adhering to their former recommenda
tions of non-attendance, the Journal says
One of the most mischievous parts of the
conspiracy to boycott. In which a few misguid
ed Grand Army leaders have engaged, is the
dissemination or false intelligence through the
press. They have apparently obtained control
of some special reporters, and load the tele
graph wires with fictions in regard to their
doings. For instance, on Wednesday dispatches
were sent to the Milwaukee press, if not else
where, absolutely stating that eight States
were represented in Chicago at a secret meet
ing of the kickers held that day, and a list of
tbe Department Commanders is given, as if
they were actually present. The story is abso
lutely lalse. But two Department Command
ers were in Chicago on that day Martin, of
Illinois, and Brown, of Michigan. All the rest
is f nstlan.
