A Sensation Produced by the Recan
tation of Previous Allegations
Made by a "Witness on
the Stand.
MISTRESS AND MALD.
A "Witness for the Defense Recants
Her Original Statements.
Jj0XD0, Dec. 1. Hearing of the Camp
bell divorce suit resumed todav. Kosa
Baer, formerly lady's maid to plaintiff.
testified for the defense. She said the
Duke of Marlborough frequently visited
Lady Colin Campbell; usually come in the
afternoon; Avas shown to the drawing.
"Witness never saw any familiarity between
Lord Colin Campbell and Mary Watson in
June, 1S82. Lady Colin who was at the
time in company with Lady Mile.-, called
witness. Lady Miles told witness she had
blackened her mistress' character and mu
leave. Lady Colin gave her 10, four only
being due as wages aiid told witness to tell
the servants in explanation of her depart
ure that her father was ill, and she was go
ing home. Lady Colin added, witness
said, that she considered witness a sister,
and not a servant, and kissed her good bye,
saying it was Lord Colin Campbell who
had dismissed her.
Witness had posted letters daily to the
Duke of Marlborough. She sometimes
took them to his house. Lady Colin used
to leave the hou-e at 8 in the evening aud
return as late as ? o'clock on the following
morning; on some of these occasions wit
ness would accompany her mistress a short
distance from the house aud there be told
to return. On these expeditions Lady
Colin usually carried along a ft It hat con
cealed in her cloak. Sometime- in un
dressing Lady Colin after her return from
these absences -witness found her dress
partially disarranged. Witness found a
gentleman's handkerchief iu Lady Colin's
room at Leigh court. Plaintiff said she
knew to whom it belonged, and took it.
Once witness heard somebody after mid
night ascending the stairs. Lady Colin
coughed; the person then entered the door
of the room adjoiniug plaintiff's; the door
of the room was shut, aud witm - w:is dis
missed. Next day witness found evi
dence that the room had been occupied by
two persons. Once witness heard the Duke
of Marlborough in Lady Colin's room dur
ing the afternoon. On one occasion while
witness was brushing Lady Colin's hair
after midnight, somebody on the outside of
the room tried the door and finding it
locked departed. Witues-. saw Chief bliaw
walking outride the houcc. Theresas a
carriage in waiting; the carriage went away
and Chief Shaw entered the house. Wit
ness often mailed letters to Chief Shaw
from Lady Colin.
Being cross-examined witne.v. admitted
she cried "when she was dismissed from
Lady Colin's service, that she said '-he wa-s
sorry she had talked to tho servants, she
admitted she had written to Lady Colia
and that pkinliff never answered her let
ters. Counsel for plaintiff cross examined
Mivs Baer very closely. She admitted
that two weeks ago she had signed a state
meat that Lady "Colin dismissed her be
cause she knew too much about her, that
she thought it neccssarv to Ladv Coliu
thought she would expose her. Being
asked to explain how it came that she
signed such a statement and now admitted
itV,-as untrue, witness said ' I thought it
was true then: I think it untrue now."
(This recanti '.Ion caused accusation among
tho audience. Continuing under close
f-rcss-evaminatiou, witness admitted the
Duke of Marlborough always called upon
Lad- Colin during the usual visiting hour;
he came twie, tin ice, sometimes five times
weekly. Witness posted letters to the
Duke of Marlborough every day. some
times twice a day.
On one occasion when she took letters
to the Duke's residence she put them into
the letter-box, rang the bell and ran away
home: she had been instructed to do this
on these occassion--. Witness admitted the
statements she had made oil direct exami
nation that she found iu undressing her
that Lady Colin's dre-s was open at the
back, skirt disarranged, petticoats out of
order on occasions when plniutiif left
home early in the evening anil returned iu
the earh morning. It was not true. Wit
ness had not found Lady Colin's dress un
laced, she had found her peticoat unhooked
once. Beinjr further pressed Avitaes-- ad
mitted that it was not her petticoat but her
skirt simply unhooked so that she could j
see her petticoat beneath the skirt that j
was all Under further pressure Miss Baer
admitted that she never suspected anything j
wrong between Lady Colin Campbell and '
any person but the Duke of Marlborough.
Witness admitted that in 1S:?4, and six j
weeks ago, she signed statements alleging
that she went to Leigh court during Christ-'
mas holiday with Lady Colin Campbell, !
describing the jMsition of the rooms oc-,
cupied by her mistress and the Duke of !
Marlborough as adjoining, further alleging
that the Duke paid great attention to Iady j
Colin. Witness, however, now admitted
it was a mistnke. that it all occurrud at '
Eister. This testimony caused another
sensation. Co.inel for plaintiff added
more pressure; Miss Baer linally admitted j
that the Duke of Marlborough was not at j
Leigh court at Christmas, "also admitted '
that statements made in direct exarain-ati-m
about hearing some one
ascending? the stairs after midnight one ,
night and enter the room adjoining Lady ;
Colin's, and ending a gentleman's hand-,
kerchief in Lady Colin's room next morn
ing, and other indications that to per-on?
occupied me room, were untrue, a uses?. .
in her original statement, she contended.
did not say two persons had occupied the
room on the occasion referred to: witae
onlv remembered this incident las; week.
Nearly every one of Miss Baet's admi
skwis under cross-examination provoked !
excitement and sensation m view- ot their
damaging effect upon that sale of the case
which was largely built upon what she had
previously stated in writing.
FALSIFYING THE FACTS.
Elaine's Personal Relations "With
Party Leaders Incorrectly Stated.
Bosto-V, Mass., Dec. 1. The Herald
prints a letter from Ex-Secretary Wm. E.
Chandler, concerniig the relations which
existed between President Arthur and J.
G. Blaine while Blaine remained in Ar
thur's cabinet and subsequently, which
says the assertion made at length and in
various forms, that "Blaine determined to
remain at tlie head of the state department
or be turned out," the secretary of state
supposed that had he succeeded that Ar
thur would not dare disturb him; an imJ
mediate quarrel with the president, which
led to his quitting the cabinet arose from a
breach of good faith regarding instructions
given to Trescott," "soon after Blaine
was forced to resign on account of a differ
ence of opinion between himself and the
president on the South American policy;"
from that time on Blaine and family
were strangers at the White house" this
enmity was intensified by tire result of the
last presidential election, and Arthur and
friends were accused of covertly assisting
by their indifference at least the triumph
of President Cleveland this is nearly all a
tissue of falsehoods.
The resignations of members of the Gar
field cabinet were all placed in President
Arthur's hands immediately after he took
the oath of office, aud the president asked
the several gentlemen to remain in office
until there could be fuller conference. Next
day, Blaine asked the president at what
date he would probably be released from
the state department, and the latter replied
that he desired Blaine remain until the
Yorktown celebration of October 19th
should be over, and the entertainment of
French and German visitors should be
completed. Blaine, of course, consented.
Soon after Congress convened and on the
day on which Prtlinghuysen had signified
that he desired to commence official duties,
Blaine left the department. During all
this period he saw Blaine frequently and
he conversed with me freely, manifested
to me no desire whatever to remain in the
president's cabinet- and signified no such
wish to the president." The president
urged him to accept the appointment of
Minister to England which Blaine declined
with thanks, aud they parted in a friendly
apirit.
The Herald of Saturday last states' that I
did not speak to President Hayes on the
late fuueral occasion. This is untrue. I
greeted him rcspectfullv. The refusal of
Blaine to accept Senator Edmunds' hand is
to be regretted. Blaine's assigned reason
was that two days before, there had been
made public a ktt r written by Edmunds iu
Spring of 18b5, which impeached Blaine's
personal integrity. Blaine has a rigfit to
dniw this inference from the letter, but
considering the surroundings he should
have reciprocated Edmunds' salutation,
lie acted, however, from a sudden impulse
and thereby widened the breach, which,
like that with Conkling. ought never to
ha7e existed. While our great Republi
can leaders quarrel the party suffers, and
by reason of such difference loses the presi
dential election. It is for the interest of the
country that such purely personal contro
versy should not arise or continue be
tween prominent leaders of either party."
Intervention of tho French.
Pap.is, Dp. 1. M. Roquet, secretary
of tlie Parisnunicip.il council, forwarded
to United States Minister McLane, a peti
tion adopted bv the council Nov. 2, a-k-ing
for his intercession with the governor
of Illinois iu behalf of the condemned
Chicago anaichKts. McLane sent the fol
lowing reply: As the petition h designed
for the governor of Illinois, and made w ith
the object of sparing human life. I will
not refuse my as-ilance if you per-M in
demauding it, but allow me to iuforn you
that in the present case it is uelea3 You
can, as I, address yourself direct to the ex
ecutive of Illinois who alone has the power

punishment is .applicable in no state of tho
union to political offense, it is prescribed
only for odious crimes against public weal,
such as murder and rape, committed under
aggravated circumstances and with pre
meditation. In political matters there ex
ists in the United States moderation which
even profound disagreements are powerless
to alter. In the dlscu-siou of great politi
cal and social problems touching the
well fare of workers we proceed
with wide liberty, showing the spirit
of fraternity and tolerence which renders
violence inexcusable and always pred judi
cial to its authors. When a majority pro
nouncis every one submit- If this great
and salutary principle of riving expression

the basis of American institutions, be not

THE BEST FED NATION.
Norman J. Colman, commissioner of ag
ricultnre, today submitted his second an
nual report to the president. Ho describes
in general terms the progress made in
agriculture during recent years, aud tho
conditions Avhich contribute to make this
"the best fed nation on the globe." He
sets forth at length the benefits to be de
rived and expected from agricultural ex
periment stations. The stations aud col
leges of the several ttates are urged to
enlarged experiment beyond present re
sources, as they often fmd themselves
"striking new leads" which they cannot
follow at all for Avaut of means; hence the
general interest in the bill now be
fore congress "for the establishment
of agricultural experimental, in
connection Avith agricultural colleges" and
the prevalent opinion of its importance and
the desire for its early enactment. No
measure, he ays, is uoav pending or pro
posed of greater import, or bearing a
brighter promise of deep-seated and lasting
benefits to the agricultural interests of the
United Stajcs in nil their branches. In
commenting upon the Avork of the bureau
of animal industry he describes the spread
of pluro-pueumonia and says. Every
effort possible under the existing laws has
been made to locate the diseased animals
and isolate all that have been exposed. It
AA'ould have been most fortunate if every
animal exposed to the disease and liable to
contract it could haAe been slaughtered
aud tho contagion thus aoided. With a

Csst-ofTSon Tells? the
Story of Ills
Wrongs.
i Providence, R. I., Dec. 1. Unable to
bear the strain any longer. Doc ilson
this morning, broken down in health and
weeping like a child, told the great secret
that existed between him'and H. L. Moen,
of Worcester, so many years. The story
was told in the p.-esence of four reputable
citizens who furnished it to the press: I
am looked upon as a blackmailer, he said.
and those who believe I have been bleed
ing that old man held me in as much con
tempt as a yellow dog; but I will stand it
no longer. I am more sinned against than
sinning, and now the truth shall be known.
3Iy name is not Wilson, nor am I the son
of" Jonas Wilson. My father is the man
who is accusing me of blackmail and
named Levy Moen. the lawful son of II.
L. Moen, of Wcrccster.
Wilson then went on to tell the story of
his birth and the wrong done him by his
father. His story is that he is the son of
Moen's first wife, that he was born a few
months after marriage, Moen being a dea
con and professionly high-toned Christian
did not wish to face "the scandal of the
early birth of his first born, so a bargain
was" made with Jonas Wilson, of Danilson,
Conn., atage driver, by which the babe
was transferred to the latler's care and
brought up as Wilson's boy and lived and
toiled in the humble sphere to which he
says Moen consigned him, and it was not
until he avss a young man grown that he
learned the secret of his birth. For that
secret he Avas indebted to his supposed
father, Jonas Wilson, who being on his
death bed told him a ho he was. After
Wilson died the a ouug fellow sot off for
Worcester, met his father face to face.
Their first meeting, Wilson says, Avas
exactly as has been described. He did
meet Moen that morning and after obser--ing
signs of Avealth and luxury that he de
manded of ?iIoeu some reparation for the
Avrong done one avIio should share to all.
Moen at first refused to acknoAvledgc the
lad and would have driven him forth, but
the boy faced his millionaire parent dcti
antly, "upbraiding him for the wrong done
his mother and himself. He said I Avill
force you to acknowledge mc and the
world "shall know avIio you are. Then.
Doc. says the banker became alarmed and
gaAe hiin AlOO. By appointment he met
Moen next day, and he consented to shield
his father from shame. His father had
meantime married again after the death of
Doc's mother, aud married into a family
which Avould have scorned Moen had they
known of the scandal Then according
Wilson's story, the AYilsons avIio knew t!u
secret of his parentage and seeing that Doc
had money and knowing it came from
Moen, began to urge claims upon him.
their demands increaned and to satisfy them
he had to apply to Moen for money and in
that Avay much of the sum recci'ed from
the banker Avas spent. WiWon says these
demands on him grew so exhorbitant that
he was almost impoverished by them.
The Engley suits Avere settled, he said,
at Moen's suggestion, and with Mocn's
money, because the latter feared hi-? re
lationship to Wilson Avould come out the
same Avay on trial. Wil-on has letters
which he say.? Avere Avritten by Moen, ac
knowledging the relationship, calling him
"dear son.' Those letterj Wihon pro
duced today. He says he is tlie injured
one, as instead of being reared as a gen
tleman, brought up amid all the luxuries
which liis father'-- Avealth could purchase,
he was cast adrift, reared a a jieasant boy
Avithout education, Avithout any of tin re
finements of life which would have been
hi, had his cruel parent done right. Wil
son says he can no longer endure cal
unmiej'with which he U astailed, and that
