Ckidlao, Nov. 5. Spies 'and' Fioldon'do
aoended together this morning from the
murderers' row of the county jail to the
Cage below1. The 'curly heaU of the one and
the long, shaggy, unkept locks of tho other
were bathed in the sunlight that streamed
in 'through tho window. ''Only a week,"
aid Spies meditatively to his companion
as thoy reached the cage; "only a week,"
echoed Fielden. Ho might have'sald more,
but at that moment hu was summoned by

Warden McClaughry of the Joliot jKjnlten

named Elliott, were awaiting him.
Tho" conference which had referenno to
the movements on foot in favor of executive
clemency being extended to him lastedfully
an hour. When Fielden rotiirned to the
cage his face wore a thoughtful otprossiou,

Gun 8tor Doing aa Immense Business.
CniOAOO, Nov. & Business at the differ
ent down town gun storoi has not t tllan off
any in the last few daya Proprietors and
clorks who were seen yesterday war very
reticent when questioned as to the sale of
firearms. A few consented to spoak on the
subject a little. "There has been no great
rush' for firearms," said one dealer, "and'yot
I must say our sales have been rather fre
quent. Revolvers have been sold to well-to-do
looking men, who have dropped in and
hurriedly bought what they wanted and
then walked out They were moitly buii
ness men and cautious people, who, feeling
that there might be troublo, have conuclded
to 'fix' themselves. I do not think any An
archists or dangerous characters havo pur
chased from us, or, for that matter, from
any of the big dealers. That class, would
probably buy tholr weapons at the pawn
shops or of tbe small dealers in remoter por
tions of the city. Anyway,,, thoso fellows
are' generally armed beforehand,' and we
are merely arming law-abiding citizens who
want' to be able to protect themselves in
case it becomes necessary to resist force
"It Was learned that several of tha big
dealers in firearms held a secret consulta
tion with Inspector Bon Held during the
altcrrioon, at which the toplo was the se
cretion of all weapons in case pf trouble.

Ilrothnr-ln-Lnw anil Than Suloldes,
toui9ViLLK, Ky., Nov. 5 Joseph
Brownfleld, agod thirty, a mechanic em
ployed in the liOulsvilU & Nashville car
hops, murdered hU wife, his ten-year-old
child, his brother-in-law, John Bellman,
then suf6ied some tin.e durlng'las't night.
The ghastly discovery was made' about 10
this morning by aomf of BrownfleM's rela
tives who called at the house, 1UJ3 West
Brownfleld was found suspended from the
transom of the inner door by a rope, and
was quite deniL Beyond bim in a neatly
furnished room of the little cottage home a
ghastlier sight than this greeted the eyes of
the discoverers. On the bod with their
throats cut from ear to ear, lay Brownfleld's
wife and little child, their nlht clothes
soaked in blood. In an adjoining room,
also' with his throat cut, lay tho body of
Bellman. The razor with which tho deed
was done, lay on tho floor under tho
i us ponded form of the murderer and sui
cide. The murdorer was the son of Esquire
.Brownfleld, and tho whole family wa emi
nently respectable. As yet there is no ex
planation of tho terrible deed.
Brownfleld left a lotter in which he stated
that he had ruined himself gambling and
had determined on suicide; that ho killed
his wife and child because he did not wish
to leave them with no one to look after
them, and that he killed Bruner "because
be was not flt to live."
Tbe letter was written in a bold hand and
, was datd at 6;30 this morning.
An examination of Brownfleld showed that
be had tried to cut his throat, and had also
eaten Rouh on Rats, some of it being
found on his lips. His victims bad all evi
dently been murdere-1 while a-tleep.

Two Children Thrown From a Third-Story
Window by Their Kxoited Mother.
Baltihoiie, Aid., Nov. 5. A coal oil
stove exploded yoterday in the residence
of Mrs. Barbara VogaL An alarm of flro
was sounded and a crbwd'collected in front
of tbe house. When the ongln'es arrived
Mrs. Vogel was in bed with her two chil
dren, aged two and four years, in the third
story. She became frantic with fright, and
rushing to the window threw up tho sash;
thbti, clamping her little ones In her arms
she ran to the window and kissed them pas
sionately, while the astonished crowd s$ood
below gazing at her wild actions. Finally,
with, a quick movement, 'she threw'them
one" after the othjr as 'far out from tho
building as' her strength would allow, and
they plunged headlong through the air a
distance of thirty-five feet.
The horror-strioken spectators shuddered,
but a couple of gentlemen rushed forward
and cau-cht tbe children oro they reached
tho pavement. The frantic mother then
climbed upon the sill, and was preparing to
precipitate herself from the window when
tho spectators shouted to her to desist.
These cries caused her to pauo for a mo

tho opportuuiny to call to her that there
was no danger, as tiie Are was out She
finally seemed to colloct her senses and re

Contrlvanoo IIrmls Mr. Wnlte Be
lleres That It Was Only a Canard.
W"AsniiWif, " Nor. 8. Last evening
Chief Jujtioo Watte receivod a small box,
which upon oponing bo fpuud to closely re
semble an infernal machine. It containod a
bent glass tube tilled with some liquid, and
at one end Was a percuss. on cap. Then there
was a serial of wlrei and rubber bands run
ning in different directions, and appearing
as if an explosion was intended to have oc
curred When the iid was removal. In
staiupingtha box a mail clerk bad disar
ranged the wires, rendering it useless.
When it became generally known this
morning that Cuief Justice Wuito had last
night received through the mall a mysteri
ous box labelled "Important Papers," con
taining what, upon examination, was be
lieved to bo an infernal machine, thero was
naturally a good deal of excitement, espec
ially in newspaper aud official circle. The
box in which the supposed' dangerous con
trivance is onclosod is now at Polico head
quarters, and wuile it is a very curious
luokiug concern it does not appear to be ca
pable, under any circumstuitces, of doing
damage, although it does contain a small
quantity of 'course grain powder. The prin
cipal uigrediahts appear to be ink and mu
cilage. Tne.o are run into a long glass tube
and are divided from one anuiuer by per
cussion caps which tit the tube tightly.
Chief Juitfco Watte author zJi tin state
ment that in handling the box hedid'not
feel that bo was in any more danger than
bo would havo been in ban iling a uiltc hand
kerchief; that the cohstruatlou of the so
called infernal machine was so rough it was
evidently incapable of oxplosibn, evoi
should any of tbe ingredfeilti prove to be
explosives; the few grains of powder con
tained in tho tube cou.d certainly do 110
groat damage. Tne chief justice believes
the whole affair is a canard and tried his
best las: night to prevent any publication
respecting it. He said in tms connection:
"It it is published that suoh a box has been
sent to me it will naturally bj believed by
many persons and tend to prevent any
clemency whatsoever in tho Anarchist
cases. It certainly is a hoax."
At police neodquarterj this morning tho
ofllcers entertain tao smne opinion as the
chief justice, but under ths law tue box will
have to bo submitted to tne district chemist
for examination, and if it shall bo found to
contain gunpowder or any othor explosive,
no matter iu how small quantity, the seuder
of tho box has committed a stales prison of
fense. Tne story was brougnt to News
paper R-) w last night by a young man named
Sherburne 6. Hopkins, who has done some
newspaper wore in Washington, but whe
dues not seem to be credited to any regular
paper. At least his name does not appear
in tho oflicidl list of correspondents, and on
Newspaper Row there are various stories
as to what he rea ly doys represent. At all
events be brought tbe story to the Row and
told it to several reputable correspondents,
in one instance, writing out all the details
connected with the affair, saying that he
Was in the city poscolll je about 0 o'clock last
evening, and in reaching to get a pen with
which to address a letter ho noticed that a
man standing at the desk near the main en
trance, was addressing a pasteboard box tc
tho Hon. Chief Justice Wait.
This circumstance did not appear to bo of
a very suspicious charaoter, and he thought
nothing of it until af car he had loft the
building. Thon it suddenly occurred to him
that'the box might contain something dan
gerous. Ho immediately sent up to Justioo
Waite's houso to inquire if such a box bad
lien received, but at this time the box was
on its' Way, und tho judge know nothing of
it Returning to the postolfloe Hopkins
learned that the box had been mailed thars
smd'hod been sent up to Justice Waite's resi
dence by a Special messenger named W. J.
Hickey. A second inquiry at tbe justice's
residence showed that tne box bad been re
ceived in the .manner described. By this
tline tbe matter had begun to generate a
sensation among the newspaper olQoo, and
through them, Sergt Hoolenberger, at po
lice headquarters, was notlfldd. Tho sergeant
went at once to the justice's residence, and,
taking possesion of tha machine, carried it
off to headquarters for investigation.
This morning's Pout says: "Hopkins, who
oenii to bo the only person who had any
knowledge of this box previous toitu arrival
at Chief Justice Waite's residence, is some
what noted in newspaper circles for sensa
tional stories, and the fact that he went at
once to disjKwe of this story to two western
journals before even tho police had been in
fore of the dangerous character of the box,
was very enterprising, at least"
Latkiu Young- Hopkins was arrested
and tauen to police hoadquartora where he
confessed' having arranged the so-called in
fernal machine and sent it through tbe
malls to Cuief Justice Waite, for the sols
purpose of creating a sensation and being
in position to sell the news. His visits to
the chief justice's residenoe last night were
for the 1 urpose of being present if possible
when the package arrived in order to "see
the ' effect it had upon the chief justice,
which he lni ended to picture in his story' to
the newspapers. Hopkins will bo held by
the' authorities un il tha result of the chem
ist's 'examination of the contents of the glass
tube Is known, and if powder is found
therein' he will probably be' punished to tha
fuil extent of the law.
Hopkins in bis confession said that tho
glass tube contained French blacking, ink,
mucilage and giant powder; that he damp
ened the paw.ler so that it wouil bj impos
sible to explode it The caps he sa d were
tbe shells off of a large sized pistol cart
ridges they having been exploded before
he used them, Hopkins accuses one Arthur
B. Sferry who has had some connection
with the local pres as having assisted him
in the plot Hopk'in is held in 1,000 bad
on a chargo of conspiracy to defraud tho
country by furnishing the press with bogus
news for sjimilonal purposes. Sparry,

COLORADO TRAIN ROBB6R8. ' ,'
They Hold lip 11 Train Securing Twenty
Throe lteglstered Letters. ; j.(
GUNNiHO.f, Col., Nov. 6. The east bound
tram from Silt Like on the Denver & Rio
Grande rod was hold up by four masked
robbers, about 4 o'clock yesterday morhlh'g,'
at a lonely spot about 11 vo miles east oC
Grand Junction. At theit point the road
runs close to tho Gunnison river, with a
steep bankt some '200 feet high, alongside oC'
it Tho engineer saw obstructions ahead,
and as be brought hta train under control
bo saw four men on the track. Tney called
to him, "Gat down out of thero," whlck
command thoy repeated to tho mall agoni
and express measongor. Two of tho robber
went through tho mall and expross can,
getting twety-throe registered lottera from
tho mail. Tna expresa oars carry looked
safes of which only certain agents on tha
road can open, and tho tneswngerd are la
ignoranco of tho combination.
As the safes are securely bolted to tho
cars tho robbers oould noithor open or r
move, hence they captured uo express
money. The conduotor of the train, wha
had considerable money on his person, hid
while the robbers held tho' train, after
quietly sending a braken.au back to Grand
Junction to giyo the alarm. From that
point Information was quickly sent botk
ways. The engluaor had somo 1319 w'(
him, which he threw among the coal in t4i
tender, and thus saved it The th loves held
tbe train fifty minutes and thon after re
moving tho obstructions permitted, it to
proceed. None of tho paiBeugers were dis
turbed. The authorities are aotlve and It Is
thought that tho parties will bo caught, as
the country affords liUle opportunity for
secrotliig themselves. This is the first 'at

8r. Louih, Ma, Nov. l. The result of .tho
recent meeting of stool tool manufacturer
at Pittsburg was mode known here yoster
day. Eighteen manufacturers were repre
sented, and a trust was organized to 'be
called the Merchants' Steel Association of
the United States. Prices wore fixed, and
it was decide 1 that the members should de
posit with tho secretary from $500 to $1,000
as aguaranteo of fealty to tho trust Ait
affidavit is to bo made by each member
monthly that tho agreement has not beoa
violated, ntid every violation will be pun
ishable with a fine from $ 10 to $30 per toa
for tbe amount sold at forbidden rates.
Brown & Co., of Pittsburg, are to be per
mitted to sell at one-half cent a pound lea
than tho trust rates until their sales equal
last year's output This trust includes only
crucible and open hearth steel makers, but
a similar trust was organized at the same
time by tho Bessemer steel workers, whlci
is to co-operate with the first named trust,
each to sell at the other's rates.
