MillIIONS FOR PEITERSO4S.
THE OLD CITY PROPER SAID TO BE
LONG TO AN ESTATE.
Deeds Hidden in an Arm-Cbatr--A Man Paid
to Steal Them-Hunting for the Descendants
of Gabriel Petterson.
(Philadelphia Times. June 20.)
PERSONS OR FaMILIES IN ANY WAY RE
lated with the Peterson (Pettersson) fam
ily, which settled in this country in the 17th
century, will ind it to their own interest to
report their names and addresses to 101 Og
den street, Philadelphia.
Rev. Martin J. England, pastor of the
Swedish Lutheran Church, on Ninth street,
below Buttonwood, lives at 1031 Ogden
street, the address given in the above ad
A man named Peterson, who thought he
might have an interest in the matter, called
at Mr. England's home last evening in
quest of information. Pastor England is
quite a handsome man, of about the me
dium height and rather stoutly built. He
has a large, full, clear cut face, adorned by
a full sandy beard. A pair of big, laugh
ing blue eyes shine through a pair of gold
rimmed spectacles. His appearance is one
that at once inspires confidence and makes
the visitor feel completely at his ease.
When Mr. Peterson stated his business.
Mr. England said: "The gentleman who
advertised is not here, but I act in his
place. The ostensible reason for getting
the families together is for a grand family
reunion. The people we want are descend
ants of Gabriel Pettersson, who was active
In the Revolutionary War. The family
name was originally Pettersson, but it has
been modified to Peterson."
MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INVOLVED.
Upon further questioning he said: "The
reunion is not the sole reason for our adver
tising. There are millions and millions of
dollars worth of property involved, and
we wish to find the heirs to this property
and all descendants of Gabriel Petterrson.
There is a great deal of property in this
city involved. I may say, indeed, the
larger portion of the old city of Philadel
phia and extending down the river to Wil
mington, where there is also a very large
tractof land which was originally the prop
erty of the Peterson family. We have ad
vertised in Wilmington for the heirs of
Gabriel Petterson, but in advertising in this
city we thought that simply mentioning the
Peterson family would be sufficient.
"We do not receive many callers through
the advertisement, but I have received a
great number of letters, with the names and
addresses of people who may or may not
be descendants of Gabriel Petterson.
THE PETTERssONS OF SWEDEN.
"The Petterssons who came and settled
in thie country were all good people and
all highly 'respectable. They were king's
officers, army and navy officers, and some
eventually becameoffice.s in the American
armies. Of course, you will understand
thatit is quite difficult for the people to be
positive that they are of the same family,
although it is quite a large one, numbering
fully 500 persons. Intermarriage with
English and French families by the Swed
ish families might have the effect of oblit
erating a portion of their pedigrees. Then,
again, we must have a person's entire fam
ily history in the shape of a sworn affidavit,
showing that he is really a member of this
"There has been quitea contest going on
- for years over this estate and I believe that
the people are now going to see what can
be done to reclaim it. Some of the family
are quite wealthy. There now one Peter
son in Wilmington worth over a million
and a half.
BIDDEN IN AN OLD ARM-CHAIR,
"During the Revolutionary war the deeds
and papers belonging to this estate were all
loegand for fears and years nothing was
ever known ot them.
S"For a number of years an old arm-chair
lay knocking around from one place to an
- - other. -Nobody wanted it or would have
anythingto do with It. Finally it was made
a present to aman named Smith, who is a
well-to-do and quite prominent lawyer.
One day while making some slight repairs
to the chair he made quite a discovery.
*Coacealedih. the cushion of the chair was
a secret drawer or box, and nauch to his
amasement, concealed in this compartment
were the long-lost and much-wanted deeds
and-papers. Mr. Smith, however, has suc
ceeded In holding on to them ever since,
not they will do him a penny's worth of
Sbut simply through personal spite.
papers can no doubt be recovered after
hisadeath, but It Is desirable that they be
got hold of as soon as possible. No one
has ever seen these papers, yet everybody
knows that Smith has them and won't give
them up, as he holds them secure through
som legal technicality.
A THIEF PAID TO STEAL TEEM.
"Numerous efforts have been made time
and again to gain possession of the papers,
but without avail. Some years ago the
parties who now advertise made a gigantic
effort to get hold of them and spent fully
$,000 doing so. S3o great was the desire
to get hold of the papers that'an attempt
was made to rob Smith's house, and a man
was actually employed and paid $500 to do
the joL, but he was unsuccessful. I tell
you, sir, if my name was Peterson I would
hunt the matter up. and make diligent in
quiries as to my pedigree, and my advice
to you is to do the same, for you may find
that you are entitled to a portion of this
great property and will probably eventually
gain your share.
"If a reunion of the family takes place it
will probably not come off until fall, as
these people are now away from the city.
We aie expected to learn of all the members
of the family if possible, as we are not done
advertising yet and shall do considerable
more of it."
There are 168 Petersons in this year's
directory, four Petersens and two Petter
[Philadelphia Times, June 21.]
Lawyer J. Ernest Smith, of Wilming
ton, Del.. who is alleged to be the custo
dianof the valuable papers belonging to the
Peterson estate, is at present attending the
Chiao Conventiot'. A reporter yester
day 'I~ted Wilmington to verify the state
ments of Pastor England and trace the Pe
terson family, whose claim to millions of
dollars' worth of property was published
The story that the deeds to the property
were held by Lawyer J. Ernest Smith,
who, It was said, found them in an old
arm-chair and that a man was paid to steal
them, was the main topic of conversation
Arthur H. Smith, the younger brother
of Lawyer Smith, was seen at his office.
He disclaimed all knowledge of the arm
chair, or of the existence of such papers.
Hessaid, however, that an attempt had been
made to rob his brother's house some years
ago by a man who was so disguised as to
make his appearance very much like that
of Lawyer Smith. He never knew the ob
ject of the attempted robbery, as the fellow
succeeded in making good his escape. A
visit was next made to Lawyer Smith's
borne, at 1006 Jefferson street, but there
was no one at home.
MRs TATNALL'S sTATEMENT.
His mother-in-law, Mrs. Tatnall, whose
ruds adjoin those of Mr. Smith. said:
'There is an old chair in Mr. Smith's
house, but I don't believe that it ever be
longed to any of the Peterson iamily. I
know.that It has no secret drawer or box,
and I never heard anything of his having
- ay papers belonging to that estate. There
was an attempt made to rob his house some
years ago. There were large numbers of
people, mostly young women, in the house
that evening, and all were going out to a
-aty The man got into Mr. Smith's
r~om, and when he was discovered by a
servant, he said to her: "Won't you come
and shake hands with me?" The girl at
once spread the alarm, but the thief made
good his escape. I never knew that he
had any particular object in trying to rob
the house, yet it may be a queer coinci
dence that there was a good deal of jewelry
in the room at the time, which he did not
touch. I don't believe that Mr. Smith
knows anything of these papers of which
Albert Smith. the father of Lawyer
Smith, lives at 613 Washington street. He
said that his son had been interested in the
Peterson case. He thought that he had
been asked to represent the claimants at
one time. He knew nothing of the Peter
son family or their papers, and had never
before heard the arm-chair story, although
he remembered the robbery.
Walter Tatnall, who is a brother.in-law
of J. Ernest Smith, and whose wife is a
direct descendant of the old Pettersson
family, said that he knew nothing of the
matter whatever, but if such papers exist
ed he would have heard of them through
The only other person in Wilmington
who could be located as a descendant of the
Pettersson family is Paschall [I Peterson,
of 1101 French street, who was yefterday
appointed a police sergeant by Mayor-elect
THE I'ETTERSSON FAMILY.
The story as published has created a great
deal of comment in Wilmington, as the
Petteisson family is one of the oldest in
the State of Delaware and has always b. en
known as avery wealthy family. The first
member of the family to land on these
shores was Cles Petterson, who came here
and acquired a tract of land 62x'00 feet, on
April 16, 1657. Following him came other
members of the family, and the amount of
property which they acquired was simply
enormous, one grant alone covering what
is now the city of Wilmington. This grant
was made on April 16, 165. John Stall
cop on that day conveyed to Samuel Pet
terson the greater part of his estate, be
ginning at a thorcbush in the middle of
French street and on a line with the south
side of Water street. thence easterly up the
middle of French street to a point between
Third and Fourth streets, thence by a
northwesterly course across the square a'
Fourth and Market streets diagonally to a
stake near Rattlesnake run, thence in a
southwesterly direction to a small rivulet
flowing in:o the Christiana river below the
point below the point at Front and West
streets. This tract of land covers the entire
business portion of the town.
Another large tract of land was granted
to Hans Pettersson, who settled in Del:
ware before 1669. His land startedon Ver
trecht Hook and ran alongs the Delaware to
the Rockland manor, a distance of two
miles. He lived on this land between Ver
trecht Hook and Snellpot creek, and the
quaint old building, which was then c-Illed
a mansion, is still standing, looking some
what the worse for wear. A large number
of other members of the family were found,
to whom vast amounts o1 land were
The family mere w. II known and several
of them held public office. Adam Petters
son was appointed a Justice of the Peace
on June 8, 1695, and Andrew Pettersson
filled the same office from August 5, 1726.
Hans Pettersson was a member of the New
Castle Council in 1685.
The family and their property can be
easily traced until as late 1787, but after
tnat all traces of them were lost, and in no
instance is the name of Gabriel Pettersson
mentioned, although the fact is referred to
that some of the family engaged in the
Revolutionary war. The fact is also on
record that the family was among the first
founders of the Swedish Church in this
THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.
CCcAGo, June 21.-In the reading of
the platform today, the denunciation of
the Mills bill and the endorsement of the
Republicans in Congress were greeted with
The platform denIes that the Democratic
party ever restored one acre to the people.
It favors the total repeal of the internal
revenue rather than abolish protection. It
says that the officers of Territories should
be residents of those Territories It favors
the admission of Dakota and endorses the
action of the Senate in the matter.
It declares that the political power of the
Mormon Church is a menace too dangerous
to be tolerated and pledges the Republican
party to stamp out polygamy. It demands
a reduction of the letter postage to one
cent. It condemns the efforts of ti e ad
ministration to demonetize silver. It pro
test-s against the passage of the free shii.
bill, and demands appropriations for navy
and coast defense.
It accuses the administration of lending
money without interest to pet banks. it
states that those who deserted the party in
1884 have deserted the cause of reform in
the civil service. The soldier pension plank
was greeted with prolonged applause.
PREETING THE cANDIDATEs.
At 11.17 the presentation of candidates
began. Connecticut presented Hawley's
name. Illinois presented Gresham and his
name was greeted with prolonged applause.
He was no'ninated by Swett who recalled
the nomination of Lincoln made in 1800,
and compared Gresham to Lincoln. There
was prolonged cheering at the conclusion
of the nomination.
Porter of Indiana nominated Harrison.
He said that the indiana people were dis
appointed with the rejection of Gray by
the St. Louis Convention. His speech was
biographical, and there was but little en
thusiasm over it. Hie finished speaking at
12.48. and two~ minutes later the Conven
tion recessed until 3 P. M.

Methodist nuns are to be a novelty in
feminine experience. They were created
by the Methodist General Conference, after
a careful consideration of the subject by
the committee on missions. The commit
tee reported favorably, and the Conference
inserted in the discipline of the Church a
section regulating them. They are to be
called deaconesses, and they will be very
similar to the nuns of the Roman Catholic
Church, except that they are not to take
vows of life service or of celibacy. No
thing more definite than that was done by
the Conference, but the impression is that
the Methodist nuns will wear distinctive
costumes, and live in houses by t hemselves.
They will minister to the poor and the sick,
care for orphans, and do other work of
charity.-N. Y. Sunt.

LIVING ON PORPOISE TAIL.
a Shipwrecked Crew Live ror DayN on Dried
Fish and Without Water.
(New York Star.)
The English ship Laonica, Captain Boyd,
commander, has just arrived from London
and tied up in the Erie Basin, Brooklyn. at
the foot of Richards street. The vessel ex
perienced a succession of westerly gales of
burricane force from longitude 22 deg. to
11 deg. 28 min., and everything movable
on deck was washed overboard. On Fri
day. May 25. at 5 A. M., a dismasted ship
was sighted to the windward. The Laouica
tacked and stood toward her, discovering
her to be the wrecked ship -ouave. Several
of the crew were drowned, and Captain
Soper and his men were lashed to the rig
ging, and had been without food for sev
eral days. The men were taken aboad and
carried into this port. Speaking of the
disaster, Albert Richmond, first mate of
the Zouave, said:
"The Zouave was au American ship,
1,240 tons registered, and was manned by
Captain Soper, of Boston, owner of the
vessel, two mates,. ten seamen and a boy.
On the 20th day of last April we left Mo
bile, bound for Queensboro-on-the-Thames
with a cargo of yellow pine. Everything
went along smoothly for about ten days.
when easterly gales sprang up and the sea
began to get heavy, and suddenly we found
ourselves in the midst of a violent hurri
cane. This was in latitude 42 degrees, and
39 degrees longitude. Heavy seas came
washing over the vessel and everything on
deck was swept overboard. The vessel
sprung a leak and the men were kept at
the pumps night and day for nearly a week
trying to keep the vessel righted, but to no
"At every successive burst of the tem
pest she would spriug a fresh leak, and one
tremendous sea swept over the vessel, kill
ing a seamen and the steward and wound
ing several others. On the fourth day of
the hurricane our provisions became ex
hausted, and then our real sufferings be
gan. We were without water even, and
we called upon Heaven to aid us in this
calamity. The tail of a porpoise hung on
one of the yardarms. We had harpooned
the fish in fine weather, and the dtied tail
became our only food. We ate it with
avidity while it lasted.
'On the mor ning of May 20, during the
heaviest gale, the vessel collapsed, and all
that we possessed, inclu'iing clothing, bed
diug and other little trinkets, went down
into the sea. Our ship finally righted, and
those surviving we lashed to the riggiug.
[n this condition, without provisi.ns of
ary kind, we drifted ab':ut. the rcen
Several vessels pissed us in the distance,
but none approached us. We were on the
point of giving up all hopes of ever again
seeing land when, on the morning of May
15, we sighted the good ship Laouica, and
they picked us up. This was the narrow
est escape I ever hal. I had been in three
shipwrecks before, but none equaled this
one in point of terror and privation."
Captain Soper of the Z uave left for his
home in Boston last night. The scamtin
were sent to the Sailors' Home in this city.

MRS. VANDERBILT AT COURT.
Leading the Americans Before the Queen-Her
Dreas and Diamonds.
No Americans have ever created so great
a social sensation in England as the Van
derbilts. All the Mackay splendors sink
into insignificance beside them, a:d their
siege of London was short, since the whole
social world promptly surrendered to these
monarchs of millions. Of course a pre
sentation at court was an important part of
that success, and has been duly reported in
the dispatches, which were too brief, how
ever, to adequately convey the full gor
geousness of Mrs. Vanderbilt's appearance
on that important occasion.
She led the line of the little batch of
Americans under the wing of the United
States Minister, Mr. Phelps, and her com
patriots were so taken with her jewels that
they had no eyes for the display of the
Duchesses and Countesses that thronged
the ante-room. Mrs. Vanderbilt wore a
dress made with a demi-train of heavy cre
ette pink satin brocade, with scattered
bouquets of wild roses in gold and silver.
The long court train was of cream-white
velvet, lined throughout with pale yellow
satin, and bordered with a wide band of
cream-white curled ostrich feathers. The
pink ho lice was long and pointed and
draped with silver tissue, which, was held
in position with pale pink enamel wild
roses, whose foliage was crusted with dia
The silver tissue draperies were held at
their juncture with the train by large dia
mond~ ornaments finished with pendant
chains of diamonds and .pearls. Her fan
was of cream-white ostrich feathers, and
the same sort were in her hair, held by a
superb diamond aigrette.
Her necklace of solitaires was estimated
at $150,000 by the ladies who stood about
her, and those in her ears were said to rep
resent $15,000 more. She wore bracelet'
and rings of the same precious stones, and
even the gold handle of her fan was thickly
encrusted with these jewels. She fairly
blazed with these myriad gems, and even
royalty, which usually regards~ every one
with equal indifference, opened its eyes and
stared at the American woman's diamonds.
slk Hats And Rainy Weather.
Have you ever noticed, writes a Phila
delphia merchant in the Hatter and Fur
rier, that if you put your silk hat on in
the morning and forget to take your
umbrella with you it is just sure to rain
before you get back? I can giveyou an
illustration which will prove my theory
conclusively-at least it did so to my
mind, A 1.umber of years ago I was
living in Lancaster County, and it was
very dry; so dry; indeed, that at many
of the country churches they had begun
to hold services every day to pray for
rain. Several weeks passed, however,
and still no rain.
My uncle, with whom I was stopping,
was a devout Christian, and also believed
in the efficacy of prayer to induce the
Supreme Ruler to cpen the floodgates
of heaven and moisten the parched earth.
He attended the services regularly, and
poured forth many an earnest appeal.
I have no doubt but the fact that he had
about eighty acres of corn which was
being conpletely dried up made him all
the more earnest, but, at any rate, when
many had given up all hope of it ever
raining again, and the more superstitious,
my uncle among them, had made up their
minds that the end of the world was close
at hand, arrangements were made to hold
an all day service. It was largely atten
ded, and my uncle that day, for the first
ime since his marriage, forty years
before, got out his high silk hat and wore
it, I shall never forget how odd it looked,
for, of course, it was very much out of
style, and resembled an antique relic.
Well, would you believe it, before he
got home big banks of clouds came up,
and I never saw it rain harder. Of course,
as my uncle had not taken an umbrella
with him that morning, his antique hat
was ruined. The other people all attri
buted the rain to the many supplications
that were offered up that day, but I have
lways had another theory as to what
brought it on. I think it was because
my uncle wore his silk hat.

land hotel proprietor is a foregone, con

physicians say that his death is only a
1uestion of time, and that at the best he

IT KNOUKS DYNAM [NE ALL HOLLOW.
Emmenaite Burns Under Water and H1olds
Plate Armor in Contempt.
(From the New York Star.)
In an old house near Harrison West
chester county, built in Revolutionary
times, resides )r. Stephen H. Emmens,
the inventor of a new explosive. Four
12-ounce charges of Emmensite were in
serted into two borings in an immense
rock not far from the house and exploded
in the usual way, breaking the hard stone
into thousagds of fragments. The whole
displacement by the explosive was rough
ly estimated at thirty-six tons by expert
engineers who were present, there being
represenatives of the United States,
France and Japan.
Some iron plates six inches square and
one-qnaater of an inch thick were sus
pended by threads from each corner, on
which was placed and exploded a one
and half ounce charge of nitro gelatine,
giving a slight dent; one and a half ounce
cartridge of dynamite on another plate
produced a saucer-shaped indentation,
while the Emmensite knocked a hole
right through the plate. A conical shell
weighing sixty-six and a half pounds
was placed on a steel platform, having a
"spud" in the centre to fit the interior
of the projectile, on which it is put after
being charged with the explosive; the
discharge threw the shell twenty feet
further than any of the other explosives
used. The descending lump of iron
made a well-like grave for itself down
somewhere near China.
Target practice with a Springfield rifle
using seventy grains of gunpowder sent
a bullet through three deal boards I
inches thick, while fifteen grains of the
terror under discussion drove the reg
ulation ballet through five boards and
no one knows how many more it would
have gone through if an inch thick iron
plate had not stopped its wild motive
A novelty in experiments was reached
when some ot this material was lighted
with a match and thrown under water
where it continued to burn making the
water bubble acid boil. Certainly Gretk
fire bus not been cramat;.d as this terrible

RICE BEER! RICE BEER!
We are the sole manufacturers of this de
licious and healthy beverage, which after
having been analyzed by all the eminent
chemists in Atlanta, Ga., during "Prohibi
tion" and after the most searching scrutiny
for traces of alehohol, was allowed to be sold
free of State and city license, and so also
more recently after further analyzing in Flor
ida. It fills a long felt want for a stimulant
and appetizer that is not intoxicating; pleas
ant to the taste, contains nourishment and
specially suited for persons of weak and del
icate constitutions. It has the tastelof lager
beer of the finest flavor; besides, to add to
its purity and medicinal qualities, is special
ly made of our celebrated world renowned
original Artesian well water. Put up in
cases of one dozen pints at Si 25 per dozen;
five dozen at 1 per dozen, and in casks of
ten dozen each at 90 cents per dozen. Cash
must accompany each order. ~Copyrighted
