Bridgeport, Conn., Sept. 25. Dr. Nancy
Guilford is the only person the authori
ties now think they need to solve the
mystery of the death of Emma Gill and
the subsequent dismemberment of her
.Eudora. Guilford, the daughter of Mrs.
Guilford, who, it is claimed by the police,
was at the Gilbert Street house, in this
city, when Emma Gill died, and when
the body was disposed of, is a prisoner at
"Wellsburg. X. Y., and will be brought
here as soon as the necessary papers have
Harry Oxley, the young man who
brought Emma Gill to this city and fur
nished the money which Mrs. Guilford de
manded, is locked up in the county jail.
Rose Drayton, the colored woman "who
worked for Mrs. Guilford, and Clara
Drayton, her daughter, who was Mrs.
Guilford's maid, and who the police be
lieve knows much about the case, are
also locked up in the county jail. Howard
Guernsey, Oxley's friend, and whose con
nection with the case seems to be only
that of being Oxley's confidant, has been
released on $500 bail, which was furnished
by his father.
Today has been a. quiet one for the
police. Much has been accomplished,
However, in the preparation of the case.
The red-geared wagon, the articles found
In the Guilford home after the hasty
flight of the inmates the day after the
bbdy was found, and many other clews
which the police have but refuse to give
out, have been carefully gone over and
prepared for the use of the prosecution.
In Connecticut all the parties to the
crime are charged as principals and -nay
be prosecuted as such. There is a statute
which so provides, and the charge of ac
cessory before and after the fact does
not exist. If Mrs. Guilford is charged
with murder, all those In any way con
nected with the crime will be charged
with and tried for murder.
It will be probably a week before the
papers necessary to bring Eudora Guil
ford jo this city will reach Wellsburg. X.
T. The hearing in the cases against those
under arrest now has been set down for
October I. Unless Mrs. Guilford Is appre
hended before that time, it Is probable
the hearing will be adjourned.
The authorities fear that Mrs. Guilford
will kill herself rather than be capfjrd,
now that she knows the character of
the charge the authorities have against

Gnu Making Plant Contemplated by
the Carnejcle Company.
Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 23. H. C. Frick
states that it is contemplated by the Car
nle Company to establish a gunmaking
plant here which will prove a formidable
rival to the Krupp works at Esen, In
Germany. It Is proposed to locate the
works at Homestead, and a plot of thirty-seven
acres has been purchased for the
purpose at a cost of $310,000.
It will comprise four huge buildings ca
pable of giving employment to 3 000 work
men. The fact that this plant Is to be
located at Homestead, the scene of the
disastrous riot of six years ago, demon
strates the truthfulness of the report that
the Carnegie Company has come to a
clear understanding with its employes,
and has cause to believe that pleasant
relations now existing will not be dis
turbed for many years at least.
It is also reported that the Illinois Steel
Company will soon enter the field as a
manufacturer of guns, ranging from the
small rapid-fire arm to the largest disap
pearing rifle used in coast defense, but
this,.rej)ort cannot be positively affirmed.

AN HONORABLE ACQUITTAL.
Gen. Cor bin's Comment on the At
tack Made AKnlnst Him.
"It is the greatest piece of brutality
and cowardice I ever heard of."
This comment was made by Adjt. Gen.
Henry C. Corbln to a Times reporter yes
terday on the story published In a New
York paper, which stated that Gen. Cor
bin had been court-martialed for cow
ardice during the Civil War.
Adjt. Gen. Corbln most positively re
fused to discuss the matter, but when
pressed to make some statement in addi
tion to the caustic comment already
quoted, he said, with marked emphasis:
"A soldier who will discuss his valor is
like a woman who will discuss her vir
tue. He has none."
Gen. Corbin admitted, however, that
he had been court-martialed after the
battle of Nashville, at which time he was
In command of the Fourteenth United
States Colored Infantry. He would not
listen to any reference to the alleged
statement made by Col. Thomas J. Mor
gan, who was his brigade commander, In
the latter officer's report of the battle,
one sentence of which is said to read:
"I regret to say that Col. Corbln does
not possess the courage to command
Nor would Gen. Corbin make any state
ment regarding his relations with Col.
Morgan or discuss the battle or the part
he look In it. He said that he did not
propose to be drawn into a controversy to
oblige any newspaper or persons.
As to the court-martial, he said the rec
ords are not in the possession of his de
partment, but are in charge of Col. Fred
erick C. Ainsworth, chief of the record
pension division. Gen. Corbln said that
any person who desired to look over the
proceedings could probably have their cu
riosity gratified by applying to Col. Ains
worth, but that he had no control over
He said that while it has been a long
time since he had seen the papers in the
case, he yet remembered distinctly the
concluding paragraph of the decision of
the court, after it had carefully summed
up the evidence, and had fully discussed
the case. Gen. Corbln then drew a sheet
of paper toward him and wrote these
"And the court does, therefore, most
honorably acquit Lieut. Col. Corbin of
every charge and specification."
When he had penned the line the gen
eral leaned back in his chair and said:
"You will find those words In the report
verbatim, and I don't think the idea is
conveyed by them that I was guilty of
the alleged baseness which, it is said, is
charged against me by the New York pa
per. I have not read the article referred
to, nor do I intend to read It."
INCAPACITY OF SPANIARDS.
A Itetlred French Xavnl Ollicer's
"VIevrM an Manila.
Le Courrier des Etats-Unis Is publishing
a series of letters from Manila, one of
which gives an .account of the battle of
Cavlte by a retired French naval officer
who lived for a long time in the Philip
pine Islands, and whose country house
was situated between Cavite and Manila.
The views of the Frenchman are Inter
esting, especially because they seem ut
terly devoid of all prejudice:
"Now, monsieur," asked the corre
spondent, "since your house was so near
the scene of the battle, be good enough to
tell us what the affair looked like."
"Well, I will tell you the thing simply
and just as It occurred. At 5 o'clock
that morning I was in bed. I heard a
long, dull sound. I thought that It was
a signal announcing the arrival of a
French or an English vessel. My wife
awoke and asked, 'What is that?' 'It Is
simply a signal,' said T. Two minutes af
terward there was another cannon shot.
'Hello! What's this?' said I. 'Is it some
thing serious? That certainly can't be a
signal.' I jumped up and looked out of
the window. I could see nothing but a
little curtain of fog and a little smoke.
Then, to frighten my wife with what I
believed was a little practical joke, I
shouted, 'The American fleet!' I looked
out again. The fog was gone, and, sure
enough, I counted seven American ships
in line. They were advancing very slowly.
I came back to my wife and said: 'Well,
now, let me tell you that what I said to
you a moment ago by way of a joke is
really a fact. Here the Americans are!'
She almost lost her head with fear. 'None
of that,' said I. 'Cover your head in the
bedclothes and put cotton In your ears
if you want to, but keep quiet.'
"I watched the fleet. It was advancing
upon Cavlte, where all the Spanish boats
were heaped together like mice in a trap.
The Americans were soon upon them
and opened a terrible fire. They maneu-
ered for a while and finally placed them
selves two by two, the two largest in the
rear, and the others in front, two at the
right, two at the left, all facing the Span
iards. At half-past 7 there was not a
single Spanish vessel afloat; all were
either sunk or burned. The fire of the
Americans was excellent, indeed wonder
ful. "Each shot hit the mark. I could
see the smoke and the cloud of dust
when a projectile fell on shore. It was a
magnificent piece of firing practice."
"But didn't the batteries fire?"
"Oh, yes, the battery at Cavlte fired a
few shots, but It was quickly demolished
by the shells of the Americans. It was
absolutely reduced to cinders. I admired
greatly the accuracy of the American
shooting. As I said, every shot seemed
to hit the mark."
"Now, tell us about the protestations
that -were made by the consular corps,
and especially by the German consul, in
legard to some broken promises?"
"There were no protestations. The
Spaniards came to the French consul and
protested" to him on the day of the battle.
I was there at the time. They were ex
cited and shouted out: "Senor Consul!
Senor Consul! They fired at us with shells
that burst!' It was I who replied to
them: 'Ah, shells that burst!' I exclaimed.
'Did you Spaniards protest in 1S70 when
Strasburg, Belfort and Paris were bom
barded with shells that burst? And even
two months ago, when you massacred a
lot of insurgents, it was also with shells
that burst!' But that Is the way always
with these Spaniards. They are proud,
valiant and stubborn, but they live in
1550 or say 1C10. They have not changed
one bit since then. Charles "V, Cortez and
Legazpi are the only heroes they speak
of. They do not seem to know that a
great many new things have been intro
duced since that time, among others
shells, new powders, machines, electricity,
"Now, monsieur, do you believe that
with the wise administration of a far
seeing and cultivated nation the Philip
pines would be a valuable colony?"
"Marvelous, perfectly marvelous. In the
Philippines there are untold riches and
their situation is perfectly unique. Among
other things, there are sugar, hemp, rice,
and an incalculable quantity of precious
woods. And to all these must be added
coffee, tobacco, and the mines. In fact,
the subsoil is worth gold, but It has never
"Have the natives really suffered much
from the Spaniards?"
"Oh, yes, very much; that Is incontesta
ble. The Spaniards never did anything
for them. Just fancy that at Mariveles,
at the entrance to the bay, there are still
cannibals. Yes, sir, cannibals! Just think
of that! They are very gentle and they
do not cause much trouble, r will admit,
but they have a taste for human flesh,
all the same, and that propensity has
never been checked by the Spaniards.
They go to church once in awhile, and
that Is all that Is demanded of them."
"How comes it that the Spaniards did
nothing? Why did not the governor risk
a coup de main to recapture Cavlte and
"With what? They, could, do nothing..
They would have been under the fir of
the American fleet."
"But they had field pieces and It would
not require very heavy projectiles to
pierce the American ships?"
"Oh. yes, they had field pieces, but they
were worthless. In fact, they had noth
ing to speak of. Disorder was every
where; the insurgents surrounded" the
town on all sides and only watched their
chance to capture It. The Spaniards
found themselves threatened by every
body, both in the town and outside pt it.
Now that the Spaniards are beaten they
are busy with a problem wnich, with their
temperament. It will be difficult for them
to solve. They want to find -out ,the
cause of their defeat and they seek for
it everywhere except in themselves. And
yet that Is just where It is."
BADGES AND SYMBOLS.
The Men iih of Idcutlfyliif? Cori 1
viHlnns and ItrlKadcH.
An interesting illustrated pamphlet has
been compiled by Major HIestand, assis
tant adju'tant general, descriptive of the
corps badges, symbols, flags, and pen
nants used by the American army.
This pamphlet, which Is officially known
as "General order No. 90," states that
when the land forces of the United States
wero organized Into army corps, divisions
and brigades, the symbols, flags, pen
nants, and badges were made in accord
ance with descriptions and designs fur
nished in the office of the quartermaster
The symbols and badges are as fol
lows: For the Cavalry Corps, a winged horse
foot. Artillery Corps, crossed conical pro
jectiles, with round shot above center.
First Army Corps, a circle over the let

Third Corps, a three-tooth clutch.
Fourth Corps, a caltrop.
Fifth Corps, a five-bastion fort.
tiixtii corps, a six-spoke hub.
Seventh Corps, a seven-pointed star.
Eighth Corps, two circles overlapping
each other, one-third radius, resembling
the figure "S."
Ninth Corps, a buzz-saw with nine
Tenth Corps, two triangles, point to
point, resembling the letter X. for "10."
Eleventh Corps, badge of Tenth Corps,
with horizontal bar through center repre

leaf at each corner, thereby showing
twelve small circles.
Thirteenth Corps, a palm leaf with thir
Fourteenth Corps, a square with half
circles on each side.
Fifteenth Corps, a bugle.
Sixteenth Corps, a sparhead.
Seventeenth Corps, a battle-ax.
Eighteenth Corps, an arch.
Each corps Is comprlbed of three divi
sions, which will be represented by the
color of the badge or symbol, as follows:
First Division, red; Second Division,
white; Third Division, blue, thus forming
in regular order the national colors, red,
white, and blue.
It will be seen that the symbols up to
and including that of the Thirteenth
Corps suggest the number of the corps,
as for Instance, a caltrop, four-pointed,
for the Fourth Corps; seven-pointed star
for Seventh Corps, a palm leaf with thir
teen spikes for Thirteenth Corps, and so
The corps symbol is worn by enlisted
men in the form of a small hrwico nn thn
front of the campaign hat or in the center
oi tne crown or the rorage cap, and upon
the left breast by officers. It is of felt
of the color designating the division to
which the wearer belongs.
Officers and enlisted men belonging to
a corps and not attached to a division
will wear the corps symbol, of the proper
size, In red, bordered In white one-sixteenth
of an inch and edged In blue one-thirty-second
of an inch. If preferred,
officers and enlisted men are authorized
to wear the proper badge made of gold
or yellow metal enameled In the proper
Members of the provost guard when on
duty in this country, at Manila, in Cuba,
Porto Rico or Hawaii, may wear on the
left breast, as a badge of authority, the
corps symbol, three inches high, or occu
pying a space of three inches square,
made of tin or -white metal.
Corps headquarters will be designated
by a swallowtail Hag of yellow. Division
headquarters by a flag with the corps
symbol in the center, thus: First Division,
white flag, corps symbol in red; Second
Division, blue flag, corps symbol in white,
and Third Division, red flag, corps sym
bol in blue.
Brigade headquarters will be designated
by triangular pennants, divided vertically
into three parts with the stripe next the
staff of a color to represent the number
of the brigade in the division, as follows:
First Brigade, red; Second Brigade,
white; Third Brigade, blue.
The symbol and badge of the signal
corps companies is crossed flags, with a
flaming torch in the center; that of the
engineer corps, a castle. The symbol of
the hospital corps is the well-known red
cross on a white ground.

The Chinese minister" to the United
States, Mr. YVu Ting Fang,n in an inter
view, says that China is -getting on her
feet and preparing for, a -glorious future
as a modern nation.
"China's awakening J' Is' a fact," he
said. "Free schools have been opened
In Pekin, her laws are to be codified and
revised, and everything will be done to
fit her to take her proper place among
the family of nations." , ,
China has become convinced that In
order to maintain thd" Integrity of her
territory she should accept Western civ
ilization and make herself strong to re
sist aggression. Therefore everything is
being done possible for her advancement,
and her minister in Washington Is play
ing a valuable part in aiding in this work.
The minister has been directed by the
emperor To codify and revise the laws
of his country. It is his intention to
make the laws as simple as possible, and
to arrange them in such a manner as to
permit of their amendment and extension
whenever experience of the future may
justify such action.
"I have also been directed," the minis
ter said, "to select the most valuable of
the text books of the schools of the
"United States, translate them Into Chin
ese, and forward them to Pekin for the
use of my government It is recognized
at home that the waj' to modernize China
is to educate the youth of the countrj'.
The emperor therefore has directed the
establishment of a university, a high
school, and an elementary school in
Pekin. and officials and others have been
Invited to send their sons as students. In
connection with the unlversltj' a museum
has been established, which contains the
products of China and other nations. A
translating department is connected with
the unlversltj-, and the professors attach
ed to this department are required to
translate into Chinese various works of
foreign writers which It is believed will
be of advantage in teaching the youth
of my countrj".
"A recent decree issued by the emperor
has changed the methods of awarding
honors to students. For the last 200 years
it had been customarj' to examine them
on ancient subjects, but in the future ex
aminations will be conducted upon mod
ern subjects, and the honors will be
awarded to the students discussing them
Minister Wu did not put much credit in
the report that Marquis Ito has gone to
Pekin for the purpose of conferring with
LI Hung Chang regarding the methods
to be pursued In the modernization of
China. He said that several years ago
Marquis Ito informed him of his intention
to travel after his resignation from the
Japanese Cabinet. Marquis Ito and LI
Hung Chang are Very warm friends,
and, while h may visit PeklH, the mfnis
ter does not believe that he will take
any part in the work oD developing
China's civilization. '
Minister Wu Is doing 'everything possi
ble to protect the interest of the em
peror's subjects In the 'United States and
Hawaii. Ho has repeatedly Impressed
upon the State Department the desirabili
ty of so modifying or-interpreting the
Chinese exclusion act as to .permit of the
admission of intelligent Chjnese into the
United States. He- recognizes that when
tho law was first enacted that there was
some ground for its existence, because of
tho evil character of manj- of the persons
who emigrated to this "country, but he
says that his government is willing to
co-operate with the United States to pre
vent the emigration of criminals and of
persons likely to become such. On the
other hand, he thinks that all merchants,
students and professional men should be
admitted without question.
He recited the case of a student edu
cated In the United States who returned
to China and subsequently took steps to
come back to this countrj'. His certifi
cate was properij' drafted and vised by
the American consular officer at Hong
Kong, but when he applied for admission
he was excluded on the ground that his
certificate set forth that he was on his
waj' to Boston to take charge of a store
In that city as "manager." The matter
va- brought to Washington on appeal,
but the Treasury Department, In accord
ance with an opinion of the Attornej'
General, approved the action of the col
lector of customs in excluding the j'oung
Chinaman. Had the certificate stated that
the applicant was a merchant, he would
have been admitted without trouble.
Minister Wu stated that if the treaty
upon which the exclusion of Chinese la
borers Is based were liberally interpreted
the intelligent classes of Chinamen would
be admitted into this countrj'.
So far as the Chinese- In Hawaii are
concerned, the minister said that their
status would depend upon the action of
the commission now at Honolulu. He
does not think that the Chinese exclusion
act should be extended to the Hawaiian
Islands, for the reason that there is no
competition there with any kind of Amer
ican labor, and besides, their services are
required in many capacities the require
ments of which are not possessed bj'
Americans or laborers of other countries.

How the Brave Ilut Mlhguided Tlmo
chex "Were Exterminated.
(Prom the Kew York Herald.)
Up to ten j'ears ago there existed In
the mountains of Northwestern Chihua
hua, Mexico, a small remnant of what
had been a large and brave tribe of In
dians known as the Timoches. Thej were
formerlj' allies of the Yaquis, but con
fined their fighting to encounters with
the various predatory bands of Apaches
which roamed through the western por
tion of the Sierra Madres, devastating
and destrojing the homes, property and
lives of Mexicans and Indians alike.
In the m.inj" Incursions of the Apaches
the Timoches had lost a majorltj' of theh
fighting men, and when bj the effort of
the Mexican and American forces the
Apaches were flnallj' subdued and Ger
onlmo and tho other savages who for
jearB had been leading them were prop
erly Imprisoned, the Timoches settled
down in their mountain homes to reunite
the so-called families of their band and
organize tribal relations.
Their habitations were mostlj to the
north of the town of Concepcion, now
Guerrero, and not -far from the line of
the Chilhuahua and Pacific Railroad, now
Timosaclifc was a 'little" town, which
vtas looked upon as a 'sort of center of
their stamping ground, and here thej'
had built a church, which was served bj
a priest from the Cathedral at Chihua
hua. The Timoches were different from any
other Indians of Western Mexico, gen
erally larger and finer formed; their com
plexions were light and hair tine and dif
ferent n color and texture from that of
the ordinary Indian. The women, too,
were of good figure and face, and In In
telligence In advance of the Mexicans.
They were most faithful in their reli
gious observances and were marked for
their steadj' conduct and good citizen
ship. During the j'ear 1S34 the Timoches
were visited bj' a fanatical woman pre
tender, who, stj;ling herself Santa Te
resa, announced herself as having a mis
sion from heaven, and that the mission
looked to the regeneration of Mexico
through her agencj. And the Timoches,
the simple-hearted Indians, were attract
ed bj' the adventuress, who also claimed
extraordinarj' healing powers through
The Indians flocked to her standard,
and the demonstration became of such
form that the Mexican government sent
an officer and a detainment of soldiers to
arrest or summarilj' squelch Santa Te
resa. The Timoches, acting under her
orders, killed the soldiers, and the offi
cer hurried back to Chihuahua to carrj
the news. Then a larger force was sent
under the command of a colonel, and he
was killed, as well as the greater part
of his command.
Then It was found that an agent of the
Timothes had arrived In Chihuahua and
Informed tho leaders of the Church partj
of the success of their revolt, and,
thinking this an opportune time to over
throw the Liberal partj' and the reform
laws of Juarez, the Church partlj' greatlj'
aided and encouraged the Timoches, un
til the elements of discord became so evi
dent that martial law was declared In
that cltj', and a heavj- force of regular
troops was dispatched to dispose of the
recalcitrant Indians. Meantime, Teresa
was urging the Timoches to defy the
government, claiming that God was di
recting her, and by His help she would
cause them to conquer.
The infatuation of the poor creatures,
together with the information that the
Church party In the city of Chihuahua
was about ta. revolt against the govern
ment, was such that they determined to
fight to the end. and threw up entrench
ments around their town and provisioned
in great quantity the church which stood
in the center of the town.
This was also fortified with great walls
of stone, at each entrance port holes were
cut, to command the road upon which the
soldiers were to come, the women and
children of the tribe were brought hith
er, and upon the attack being made in
overwhelming force, a most deadlj- bat
tle was fought. Having fallen back upon
the church, where had been stored extra
arms and ammunition, the women were
used In loading the guns, and for three
days a most gallant defense was made
and hundreds of Mexican soldiers were
Finally artillery arrived, and a bom
bardment of the church began. The sol
diers were stationed on everj' side of
the church, and the destruction of life
after each cannon fire was followed by
the j-ells of dying women and children,
but the Indians fought to the last, and
one woman, it is related, stood close to
one of the port hoIe3 and said words of
cheer to her aged husband, and In turn
to her five stalwart sons, and when thej
all fell she called her two grandsons,
boj's of twelve and fourteen j'ears of age,
to aim the Winchesters at the foe, tell
ing them that God had honored their
fathers with a glorious end.
The Mexican soldiers, embittered by the
loss of their comrades, showed no quar
ter, nor did the brave Timoches ask it.

The Fans anil the Trolley Car ux a
MeitiiN of I'roniotlncr Health.
(From the St Louis Globe-Democrat )
The electric fan has sprung into great
repute in medical circles. One well
known practitioner in New York sajs
that during the hot months one of the
first things he insists on his patients
providing themselves with is an electric
fan, which has an admirable Influence on
the nerves, no less than the temperature
of the patient. He condemns, however, In
the strongest terms all fans that make
a whirring, singing or humming noise,
which has a most pernicious effect on in
valids, and maj- even tell seriously in
the course of a few hours on a strong
man, unconscious though he maj be of
the cumuIaCve strain on the nerves Noisy
fans should be absolutelj- tabooed as so
cial evils, and in the sick chamber none
but the noiseless varietj- should, on anj'
account, be admitted. It is not alwaj's
necessarj to keep the fan at Its most
rapid revolutions; its speed should be
aried according to atmospheric condi
tions. A banker in a large city, who
heard of the illness of a woman and her
little one, Instead of sending boxes of
dainties, had a wire run from the rail
wa' circuit near the house to the in
valid's room, and an electric fan placed
at the foot of the bed. The temperature
of the mother, Tvhose case had been pro
nounced hopeless, began forthwith to im
prove, and she was soon out of danger.
The phj'sician said the recoverj- was due
far less to medicine than to the soothing
influence of the electric fan.
Another source of health which doctors
are freelj recommending to patients who
have no vehicles of their own is the trol
lej' ride. The trollej' goes right out into
the suburban and countrj districts, and
takes the passenger not only into the
freshest and best air, but Into bits of
countrj that surprise and delight him.
The benefits thus brought to children are
incalculable. A phj'sician recently made
the assertion that the number of chil
dren who actuallj- owe their lives to the
electric cars maj' be estimated by thou
sands. He added: "Few people can real
ize the good that a ride into the country
does a babj' which Is falrlj prostrated
with heat. The cool, fresh breeze after a
stilling hot daj' In a close room In town
means a new lease of life for the child.
Many places are run Into on the electric
roads where the temperature is twenty
degrees lower than In town. I wonder
that some fresh air societj doesn't char
ter a car on some of the lines and reserve
it in the evenings for mothers with sickly
little children, letting" them ride free. I
can think of no finer bit of charltj or one
that would give more gratif j"ing returns."
In manj cities during the late hot spell
one of the remarkable features of the
trollej- lines was the number of people
having as baggage a pillow and a cover
ing of some kind, who, late everj' night,
thronged the cars going out country
ward. These passensers would camp out
in the woods, like so manj' traveling
bands of gj'psies, and return to the city
bj the earlj morning cars.
