MRS. CORBETT'S CASE.
Troubles of the Cham
pion Coming- to a Cli
max Very Soon.
JIM WILL NOT TALK.
He Claims to Know Absolutely
Nothing About His Wife's
NO PROCEEDINGS IN DAKOTA.
Mrs. Corbett Did Not Go to Yankton
to Look After Her Legal
NEW YORK, N. V., June 24— The
marital troubles of Jim Corbett and wife
seem to be approaching a climax. A re
porter called at Mrs. Corbett's fine home,
140 West Eighty-eighth street, but her
father, Mr. Lake, said the report that she
had been to Yankton, S. D., to institute
proceedings there against her husband was
untrue. He further stated that his daugh
ter had not been outside of New York for
some little time.
Howe & Hummel are Mrs. Corbett's at
torcys, and Abe Hummel admits that there
is a likelihood of the affair soon becoming
very public in all its details, but just now'
be declines to give out any particulars.
The champion himself is almost as close
mouthed as a clam on the subject, as the
following dispatch shows:
ASBUKY PARK. N. J., June James
J. Corbett, the pugilist, was found at his cot
tage here to-night. After he had returned
from a drive he was interviewea by a corre
spondent as to his marital troubles. Corbett
was polite, but uncommunicative. He stated
that If Mrs. Corbett had applied for a divorce
In Yankton he did not know of it. When
asked if it was a fact that Mrs. Corbett had al
ready brought proceedings for absolute divorce
In the State of New York he said he would
rather not answer that question. He declined
also to say whether papers had been served on
him by the attorneys of Mrs. Corbett. On
being asked if it were a fact that he had filed
his answer he hesitated and again declined to
It was suggested that perhaps he had placed
the matter in the hands of his attorney, to
.which Corbett replied, "I did not say I had an
attorney, did I?"
"Is it possible that your domestic difficulties
may be settled out of court by a referee or other
wise?" was next asked.
"I would rather not answer," said Jim, "as I
cannot answer the question definitely, and do
not know what may happen. If the time comes
for me to talk, and it may come, I will-tell my
side of the story."
Corbett was asked if it were a fact that he had
deeded a handsome residence on Eighty-eighth
street, New York, to his wife and was now pay
ing her ,f 100 a week. His reply was : "I see the
newspapers say so."
Jim said it might, perhaps, be to his advan
tage iv talk, but he declined to do so from prin
ciple, He intimated that the proceedings
might not be brought, but was positive in de
clining to talk on the subject. As to the name
of the corespondent In the case, he said that
was a matter which he would not discuss with
any one. Corbett said that he had been
pressed by newspaper men to talk on this mat
ter, but it was one between his wife and him
self and he would not utter a word. If any
talking was done outside the courts it would
be by the other side, not by him.
A newspaper man had offered him $1000
cash to talk of the matter or write such state
ments as he desired to make, but he positively
declined the offer, as he is not trading on the
private troubles . between himself and Mrs.
WILL MARRY AGAIN.
The Champion, It la Said, Will Wed
CHICAGO, 111., June 24.— 1t is reported
here that James J. Corbett is going to
allow his wife to get her divorce, for
which she applied in New York
to-day, that ;7he . may be free to
enter another matrimonial venture. The
woman whom it is said ' he may marry is
Vera Stanwood, and there is almost a cer
tainty that she is the one who will .figure
as ; co-respondent in the coming divorce
proceedings. Miss Stanwood is a tall
blonde' with exceedingly pretty features
and complexion. She is refined arid on
the surface impresses one favorably,' but
her morals are weak.
. She was born and reared in Denver,
where she now lias living a mother and a
very beautiful sister, standing well
in V, the community, but her , family
name cannot be learned. Vera mar
ried early a well -to- do merchant,
who is now dead. Extravagance' and
love of dress are said to have been her
ruin. She met Corbett shortly after
coming to Chicago, three years 7 ago,
and the champion spent money "on
her ' like water. * Among the' presents
he is known to have given her are
a diamond ring, a diamond hairpin
and a very handsome gold watch. The
pair took' many trips to different parts of
the country and the last heard of ' them
was when they were in New York. J^'V.
It was ; said to-night at the house where
Vera formerly lived that there was
no ; doubt but that the Corbett-Stan
wood case was one of mutual attrac
tion, and that Corbett is completely in the
woman's power. Corbett has made re
peated promises : to . marry the woman in
the presence of other girls in ( the house,
and they believe that he is sincere* 7 V 7

UNDER STRONG SUSPICION
William Starr Henry Denies
Having Murdered His
The Police Claim to Have Strong
Circumstantial Evidence V ■
NEW YORK, N. V., June William
Starr Henry, the accused murderer of his
father, Charles W. Henry, the aged miser,
spent his first Sunday in Raymond-street
jail yesterday. He has now been In custody
nine days, and as far as can be learned he
has continued to assert his innocence. The
police, however, have been hard at work
weaving a chain of circumstantial evidence
around him which they believe will con
vince every one of his guilt.
A reporter had a long talk with Superin
tendent McKclvy this afternoon, in the
course of which, the Superintendent said
that he had learned enough of the past
life of William Henry to warrant him in
believing that he could be guilty of al
most any crime. The Superintendent
intimated that William had expressed a
hatred of his father of the most intense
kind to some of his acquaintances.
"We are looking for more of this sort of
evidence," continued the Chief, "butweare
handicapped in a great measure by the
general public sentiment in favor of the
accused man. People are afraid to tell all
they know about him for fear of being
brought up as witnesses. I expect, how
ever, that we will get more evidence
"Then you have not changed yonr" mind
about his being the guilty party?" in
quired the reporter.
"Indeed . I have not; in fact I am
strengthened in that opinion. I have
found out some things which I will not
give out, but I will tell you this, I am
certain we have the right man."
"Have you not thought that Walter's
action since the discovery of the murder
requires an explanation?" was asked.
"I will not deny," replied the Chief,
"that some of his actions have been
peculiar, but if you look into the history of
the whole family for generations, as we
have been doing, you would not regard
Walter's actions as especially strange. In
all my experience I never heard of a
stranger family than the Henry family.
Eccentric is no name for it. It reads like a
"Now," continued the Chief, "we have
found out this fact, that the most friendly
relations, had always existed between
Walter and his father. Another thing to
be borne in mind is that Walter could have
no real motive in getting rid of his father,
while the Ditter hatred that existed be
tween William and the old man would be
a probable incentive for him to take his
In answer to a question/the Superin
tendent said that he had searched the
house where Walter lives, but had dis
covered absolutely nothing to incriminate
him. He further stated that he had no
reason to "believe that Walter would be
arrested. "There may be other arrests,
but we do not intend to give out who the
parties are," said the Chief.
When asked if there was a woman in the
case the Superintendent said it was not un
likely. He admitted that investigation
was being made in that line, but declined
to say whether any clews had been found
which would lead to a suspicion that a
woman was concerned in the murder.
The police still have charge of the house
at 95 South Portland avenue where the
tragedy occurred. Applications for letters
of administration in favor of Walter Henry
will probably be made in the Surrogate's
Court. If the application is granted Wal
ter will immediately assume control of the

Excavations in An

Dr. Waldstein Makes a Most
Gratifying Report of His
A BEAUTIFUL GREEK STOA.
Its Destruction Was Hastened* by
the Falling of a Neighbor
ing- Temple. V,
NEW HAVEN, Conn,, June 24.-Pro
fessor E. D. ' Seymour of the American
school, at .Athens has just received, a re
port from Dr. Waldstein', who is supervis
ing the excavations at the Heraion of
Dr. Waldstein says that at the end of the
present season the whole of .the peribolos
will have been 1 excavated, including the
buildings adjoining the ancient temples.
During this season an immense quantity
of dirt has been removed, and the work
has been pressed, with uncommon vigor
and success. He quotes the Greek direc- ;
tor of antiquities as characterizing 'the'
workatArgoa "the model excavation of
Dr. Waldstein also says that he will take
immediate steps for securing for the
American school the sole right to excavate
in the immediate vicinity of the Heraion
for the coming five years. Referring to
the rich discovery of tombs last year Dr.
"There are certainly many more of
these near the Heraion. The two rock
cut chambers which we excavated were
certainly rich tombs originally, though
they were transformed in . Byzantine
times. Along the back of the rock upon
which the old temples stood, and in the
hollow slope above, such tombs may be
found in great number. The method of
discovering them is a simple one. Narrow
trenches are dug along the whole sides of
these rocks down to the soil. As soon as
the picks strike worked earth the dromoa to
the tomb is found."
Of the results of this season's excavations
at the stoa Dr. Waldstein writes :
"As I am now writing the building is
quite clear. It is a beautiful stoa, with
walls of most perfect Greek masonry, of
which four and even five layers are stand
ing, all sound. Within three are nine
Doric pillars. All the pillar bases are in
situ; .three have the lower drums, while
one has two arums, the remaining ones,
together with the capital, in good preserva
tion, having fallen. There are well-worked
pilasters, one to each alternate pillar. The
stoa is about forty-live meters long by
about thirteen meters wide. It faces
toward Argos, and a continual flight
of steps leads up to it. ..,-. The
temple above it must have fallen in before
tins stoa was destroyed, as, especially in
the western half, we found large drums of
the columns from the temple, which had
crashed through the roof. The flooring
was there in parts, littered with fragments
of marble from the roof, tiles and metopes,
fragments of arms, legs, torsos and bodies,
all from the high relief of the metopes and
two well-preserved heads, one quite per
fect, with portions of three others. This
stoa is perhaps the best preserved of all
the buildings we have, found, and is cer
tainly one of the most imposing now in
Greece. N • .
On the west of the stoa Dr. Waldstein
found traces of a huge staircase covering
the whole slope and leading up to the
great platform of the temple, forming a
magnificent approach to the sanctuary.
He adds in this connection that the facings
and the markings of certain parts of the
structure in different directions corre
spond to the change from the Mycenean
to the Argive supremacy.
In further excavations Dr. Waldstein
notes the discovery of walls of the
Mvcenean period, together with graves,
vases and small objects. Outside of the
boundaries of the temple he has found
buildings of the Roman period, including
an extensive and complete system of
Roman baths. , ' ;:• " :
Of the heads excavated Dr. Waldstein
says that they correspond with those
already found. They are worked in a vig
orous manner and are still of such careful
execution that he hardly believes even
those of the Parthenon can rival them in
He regards the sculptures among the
most important specimens of the art of the
fifth century B. C.
Altogether about seventy-six baskets full
of vases, terra cottas, bronzes, etc., have
been collected and a number of Egyptian
objects, including , scarabas, brought out.
On these Dr. Waldstein hopes the French
Egyptologist at Athens can throw some

Roman period, but in this respect the most
important find perhaps of the whole excav

urgent appeal for ; the * thorough* and

labor for four seasons at Argos and says:

form of the old Homeric sanctuary, over

CRUSHED TO A JELLY.
Fatal Accident to a Workman in a
LANCASTER, Pa., June 24.— A peculiar
and shocking accident occurred to-day at
the large tannery of Groesingei's Son
when George Schoenberger's head was
literally crushed to a jelly before the eyes
of several horrified fellow-workmen.
Schoenberger is a boiler-maker and, with
other employes of Best's Boiler Works,
was engaged in placing the huge new
seven-ton boiler in place in the tannery.
The immense \ cylinder rested on blocks
over the boiler pit, when Schoenberger and
seven other men started to lower it.
He was standing in the pit close to a
brick wall. The men raised the boiler
several inches and one ; of the blocks was
pulled out. Schoenberger attempted to
escape by dropping to the bottom of the
pit, where he would have been, protected
by the blocks, but the boiler rolled toward
him when it fell and his head was caught
between it and the brick wall. His head
was a shapeless mass.

Editorially the Daily News will say: "If
Salisbury demands terms from Lord' Rose
bery we trust the impudent request will be
met with a peremptory refusal. If Lord
Salisbury refuses to accept office he will
place himself in the ludicrous and con
temptible position of one willing to wound,
yet afraid to strike. The fact is Jo
seph Chamberlain has got Lord Salisbury
in a mess, and the latter now calls upon
Lord Rosebery to help him out of it. This
is not Lord Rosebery 's business. Lord
Salisbury must either pluck up courage to
face responsibility like a man, or exhibit a
spectacle of impotence and poltroonery,
from which he will surely shrink."
The Standard (Conservative) will to
morrow say: "We understand that Lord
Salisbury has conditionally consented' to
take office, and will proceed to form a
Ministry. The official announcement of
his acceptance will be delayed pending ne
gotiations between the party leaders on

WASHINGTON^ D.C.. June 24.—Sen
ator Morgan of Alabama, chairman of the
Senate Committee j on "j Foreign i Relations,
was asked to-day as to the effect of the ac
cession of Lord Salisbury arid his party to
power in England upon some of the diplo
matic matters now under consideration.
"Of course it will have no direct or im
mediate effect in this country," said he,
"but in an indirect way it would influence
all of those subjects in which this country
arid Great Britain have been involved.
"Lord Salisbury is not only a statesman,
but a great statesman, and he will bring
to the consideration of all foreign ques
tions complete information . and a liberal
and a prudent policy. For that reason his
formation of the Ministry will doubtless
have an influential effect upon the Bering
Sea question. He understands that sub
ject thoroughly, and it was through him
that the present arrangement was effected.
He devised the plan for protecting the
seals on broad and liberal lines, as it was
to the interest of the people in England
almost as much as in this country to see
that those valuable animals were not ex
terminated. To that end his first arrange
ments with Mr. Bayard were thoroughly
satisfactory; but Canada stepped in the
way, and it was impossible to execute the
policy which had been devised.
"Under the Rosebery Ministry Canada
has had a controlling influence in all Ber
ing Sea affairs, and as a result there has
been little breadth or liberality in the pol
icy he pursued. The Canadian policy is
due to a desire to gain favor with the peo
ple in the Canadian province on the Pa
cific, without much reference to the gen
eral merits of the question. But with
Salisbury at the head of the Ministry

"Although nominally a Conservative he
is liberal in his general foreign policy. He
believes that Great Britain already has a
vast territory, and that her best interest
lies in looking well after what sue -has in
stead of reaching out for more. It has
been noticeable through Rosebery's admin
istration that he Las reached out constant

has gone into Madagascar, where the Eng

cerning Chief Clarence of ' the Mosquito
Territory. The same spirit of acquisition
was noticeable under Rosebery as to Ha

A BAN ON MARRIAGES.
One Peculiar Effect of
DUE TO FALLING PRICES.
Senator Stewart Says Men of
No Income Dare Not Be
come Benedicts. \
FACTS TO PROVE THE CLAIM.
A Steady Decrease In the Number
of Marriages In Late
WASHINGTON, D. C. June 24.-Sen
ator Stewart of Nevada advances the pro
position that the demonetization of silver
will not only reduce the number of marri
ages in the future, but that it has already
done so to an alarminc extent. He pro
duces statistics to support the truth of this
utterance. - -7 ':.
"The reason," the Senator continued,
"is obvious. From the landing at James
town until fifteen years ago, the only ques
tions asked of a young man proposing mar
riage were: Is he lion est, industrious, intel
ligent and of good character? If these were
affirmatively answered the consent of the
parents was ordinarily given. The ques
tion now is, Has the young man a fixed
income? The possibility of his making a
living for himself and family by his in
dustry is regarded as too remote for con
"Why is this? Are not young men suc
ceeding to-day in business enterprises as
well as in the past? Not at all; there is
riot one succeeding to-day where 100 suc
ceeded half a century ago. You ask the
cause; it is due to falling prices. If a man
is in business he is unable to dispose of the
fruits of his labor to an advantage. On the
contrary, the more he struggles and en
gages in business the more continually do
prices fall. Thousands of men are renting
farms to-day who. were owners some years
ago, and who were forced to abandon the
position of owners because of their in
ability to pay the taxes.
- "From 1810 to 1850; the Spanish-Ameri
can wars had reduced the output of pre
cious metals to $40,000,000 annually. The
United States was . peculiarly situated.
The Mississippi Valley offered opportuni
ties for making homes which did not exist
elsewhere. Immigration from Europe built
up this country while the public lands
were being distributed so that the* United
States . did not feel the partial money
famine in the first half of the century, as
other countries did. As the public lands
became scarcer, gold from California
and Australia kept up prices and en
abled young men to buy lands or establish
business enterprises by their integrity.
Now the lands are gone and contraction
has come and falling prices have cut off
the opportunity of ! the masses' 7 The few
who deal in money are the only ones who
are now able to support their wives." ii';'
"What becomes ; of those who cannot
afford to marry he was asked.
"They live," replied the Senator, "on
their parents or go into servitude. Women
are seeking employment in stores as type,
writers and as upper servants. They must
do something; they can't afford to marry."
"What will be the effect of this upon
"The effect will be to reduce the popula
tion. The census of 1390 showed a falling
off in the increase of our population and
the census of 1900 will accentuate this de
crease. The number of marriages have de
creased from 25 to 40 per cent during the
last five years. These figures may not be
exactly correct, as I am speaking from
memory, but they are approximately so."
The conversation from this point drifted
from sociology to politics, and Mr. Stew
art, asked if he would hazard an opinion
as to the probable action of the Kentucky
convention to-morrow upon the money
"I would rather not express an opinion.
Senator Blackburn is very popular in
Kentucky, and three-fourths of the people
are with him. I know personally
that some of the gold delegates desire
his . re-election. The money power in
Kentucky, as elsewhere, is so strong that
it makes the result in that State doubtful.
The press, the banks and the railways have
a combination in "support of gold dollar.
It is, I admit, a. great power.
The press will only publish the golden
side of the question, the banks furnishing
the money to assist them and the railways
carry their people to; conventions free of
charge. Our fight, in the face of such op
position is a fearfully, one-sided one."
"What action will the Republican Na
tional Convention next year take upon the
"The position of that party was clearly
outlined at Cleveland last week. They will
fill their platform with juggling phrases
calculated to befog and deceive the
people and nominate a straight-out gold
candidate. The Democratic Convention
of next year will not be so easily, con
trolled iby the gold men. The ma
jority of Democrats are bimetal lists,
which is another term for free coinage.
The Southern people are "overwhelmingly
favorable to the white metal. Yes, already
the influence of the gold standard is seen
in that section. Quite recently they have
gained control of the Nashville American,
the Birmingham Age-Herald and ten or a
dozen other papers. This shows that they,
are beginning an active propaganda in the
South, the end of which no man can fore

7 BOSTON, Mass., June 24— Steve Rosen'
baum "and Kirshkoff of ' the gang of fire
bugs " that the New, York authorities have
in custody have been working about Bos
ton, according to Fire Marshal Whitcomb,
who says: - ,
': '"■: "We got wind of Rosenbaum and Kirsh
koff being in that case in Lynn in which;'
in conjunction with a tailor named Cohen,
they i set > fire fto - his place. 7-: Some time
after this , Lynn fire I noticed that Rosen
baum had been '/ arrested in connection
with a fire in New York. In his confes- .
sion he says he had been doing some jobs
in Massachusetts. That gave us the tip
at once, and we learned that Rosenbaum,
Cohen and Kirshkoff had put up the job to
burn Cohen's place. 'We had Kirshkoff
bronchi on, and took his confession.
"As usual, the confederates had sworn
that the one who would betray the plot
should be killed. It seems that the others
discovered that Rosenbaum was a traitor,
and when he went to light the fire in Lynn
the others locked the door on him and ex
pected he would be killed in the explosion.
He escaped with his face lacerated. Cohen
ran away, and, as we had promised Kirsh
koff immunity from prosecution if he con
fessed; no one was brought to justice for
that crime. 77?V .'7- ;

firebugs has been at work in New York
for ten years, and it is safe to assert that
there are half a dozen more besides this
one that has just been discovered. • They

GRESHAM`S WILL IN COURT.
Tile Schedule Filed With It Shows an
Estate Valued at $81,000.
CHICAGO, 111., June 24.— Judge Kohl
saat yesterday received for probate the
will of tne late Walter Q. Gresnam, Secre
tary of State. By its terms the property,
real and personal, is bequeathed to the
widow. The document shows that Gen
eral Gresham had prepared it with partic
ularity, as it bears no erasures of
any kind upon it.. The schedule
of property owned by* General Gresham
showed that he was worth $51,000 at the
time of his death. .Of this $40,000 is in real
property and the . balance in per
sonal effects. The other heirs are
Otto Gresham, the son, and Kate
Gresham Andrews, the daughter. In mak
ing proof of heirship it was said that a son
named Walter died when he was ten
months old. Colonel John S. Cooper was
accepted as surety upon the executors'
bond, together with the widow.
POLITICS IN KENTUCKY
The Democratic Convention
Promises to Open With
a Big Fight.
The Contest for Governor Lies Be
tween Casslus M. Clay Jr. and
P. Watt Hardin,
LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 24.—T0-mor
row's State Democratic Gubernatorial Con
vention will start out with a fight. It will
begin with the temporary organization,
and however it may terminate the chair
man will be a gold-standard bearer. The
Hardin men, although Hardin is a free
silver advocate, will put up Judge William
Beckner of Winchester, a gold man, for
temporary chairman, while the Clay fol
lowers will select for the place W. J. Stone
of Lyons County. This afternoon the con
vention to nominate a Railroad Commis
sioner for the Second District met. There
was little that was significant about it.
The office of Railroad Commissioner pays
but $2000 a year. George H. Alexander
was the choice of the convention.
To-night the rotundas of the hotels are
full of delegates, and they are still coming
in. All the candidates for gubernatorial
honors have opened headquarters, but it is
now conceded that the fight is between
two only— Cassius M. Clay Jr. of Bourbon
County and P. Watt Hardin of Franklin
County. Both claim their nomination to
morrow on the first ballot, but it is alleged
that should the Hardin men fail to win on
the first ballot they are beaten. In any
case the aspect to-night, looked at from an
impartial standpoint, is not bright for the
Senator J. C. 8. Blackburn, whose politi
cal career will, for a while at least, be in
terrupted, should free silver fall in the
coming battle, is here and is working like
a beaver for the pale metal. His most
formidable opponent, James B. McCreary,
who stands committed for gold, as Black
burn does for silver, is straining every
nerve to have a gold plank in the plat
form. .There are other candidates for the
place on a cold platform, but Mr. Mc-
Creary is far in the lead of all of them.
As between Clay and Hardin for the nomi
nation for Governor, it looks at a late hour
to-night as if the Clay men had slightly
the better of the situation. 7.'' 7
