Uiiwaukbb, Wis., Nov. J7. .The
mystery surrounding the murder of tho
little Whlttemore boy at Princeton was
partly solved yesterday. Tbe bey's flther
and Mrs. Ellen Long bad improper rela
tions and tbe boy knew of it. He suddenly
disappeared and after prolouged search tbe
oouy was discovered by tbe father on an
Island in tbe lake, where others searohed
Itbout finding It. Suspicion pointed to
the father and be was arretted. Mrs. Long
was arrested on suspicion of being an ac
complice. Mre. Long is - a beautiful
widowed daughter of one of the
moat noted Judges of this state, and tbe
social prominence of all tbe parties, as well
ai tbe mystery surrounding tbe cuse, mitde
tbe affair one of tbe most noted tn the
crlralual history of Wisconsin. Tbe pre
liminary examination is proceeding at
Dartford. A private telegram received
from that plaoe by your correspondent
yesterday evening says Mrs. Long yester
day confessed sue killed th boy. At tbe
opening of oourt yesterday morning Mis.
Long was sent for in order
to give testimony. She refused to ap
pear and sent word back by tbe
offlcer that she wished to make a confes
sloa. Shortly afterwards. In the presence
Of .the sheriff. Justice and attorney, abe
made a full confession of tbe murder,
which she says took place on October 'A.
She said she killed tbe boy In her own
house and then threw tbe body in Hn old
well in the summer kitchen, and subse
quently removed tbe corpus, depositing It
where It was found. She Implicaied no one
In the orime and refused to divulge ber mo
tives. It Is thought that Mrs. Long's fath
er's presence brought out tbe confession.
He advised her by letter, some time ago. to
confess, If guilty. Tbe belief is general
that there was a confederate, and that it
was simply Impossible for Mrs. Long to
convey the body to the river alone. She
insists that there was no motive for the
deed, but heir reticence since ber confes
sion, and in making tt assbe has, belies her
statement. Tbe examination will be con
tinued to prove or disprove these theories.
There Is terrible excitement at Princeton
over tbe confession, but It is believed tbe
guilty womao will be protected against mob
violence, should it be offered.

St. Louis, Nov. 27. About 10 o'clock
this morning Coroner Nidelet appeared
before Assistant Prosecuting Attorney
Claiborne and submitted to blm tor his con
tlderal ion tbe testimony taken during tbe
inquest on tbe body of Ernst Kornhardt,
wbo was shot and killed at the northwest
corner of Sixteenth street and Clark
aveuue. The testimony established ground
for a charge of murder In tbe first degree.
A warrant was accordingly issued and
placed tn tbe bands of Deputy Sheriff Kir
by, who went down to the Central District
bold-over and, ringing the bell, inquired
of Turnkey O'Leary: "Havo you got a
man named Splicer beret"
"Yes. Cell No. 6."
Proceeding to the iron door Klrby called
Spllker from tbe oak bench on which be
was reclining, and through the aid of an
Interpreter told tbe prisoner that be must
go to Jail, as a warrant charging blm with
THB murder or KORNHARDT
bad been issued. Tbe Deputy Sheriff ap
proached the desk to "sign up" for the
prisoner while Spllker busied himself gath
ering bis clothes preparatory to his transfer
to Murderers' Row.
The bell tinkled again, calling tbe turn
key to the screen.
"la ipl ker locked up neref" asked a
nan wbo stood at the door.
Yes. What do you want?"
The Captain says I can pass him this
note." The man passed in tbe paper,
whieb was bonded to Spllker as he left bis
cell. Opening It slowly be approached tbe
light and glancing over It read In a low
roice: "Delne braut wlrd haute abend an
'YOUR BRIDB WILL ARRIVE TO-NIGHT."
Spllker crushed the sbeet of paper In his
hand and turning fiom tbe officers stood
with hi head bowed down to bis breast un
til the Deputy Sheriff aroused him from bis
painful thnu ;hr to go to Jail. He preced
ed tbe tie,. no up the Iron stairs and reach
ing tbe J ill gate stood beside It awaiting Its
opening a downcast man. His friend ac
companied blm to tbe Jail gate and peered
through tbe bars while tbe guards searohed
Bpilker, who was then led off to a cell in
murderer's row. "That Is bard," said
tbe man, turning from tbe Iron cajfe.

nothing of what has bappenod to Spllker."
Where Is she coming from?" asked a
bystander wBo bad witnessed tbe cold
eave-taking between Spllker and bis
From tbe Old Country. Spllker has
only been In this country about three
months. He bad saved about sl.OOO, and
was of a thrifty turn of mind. Last August
he decided to come to tbls country. When
be arrived here be met Ernst Kornhardt,
an old school-mate, who Induond him to go
in tbe saloon business. Kornbardt had no
money, but be said he could get
the Arsenal saloon, on tbe north
west corner of Sixteenth and Clark avenue,
free of rent. Tbey embarked In business
together, Spllker furnishing tbe place with
the money which he bad brought with him
from tbe old country. Tbey quarreled
soon, however, about tbe management of
the place. Kornhardt had promtsed, In
tbe course of a few months, to put some
money Into the concern, but the time passed
and he failed to do so. Tb business was
not the success which Kornhardt pictured
to Spllker, and tbe
DISTRUST IN BACH OTHER
dally became guater. Last Friday nlibt
I hey met In the saloon and resumed tb
dispute about tho affairs of the bouse.
Kornhardt attempted to go behind tb
ber despite his pr.rtner's warning, and in
his freenry Spllner picked up a revolver
which litv under tha counter, susplolousiy
near where he stood, and fired tbrse times,
fatally wounding the man. He then went
up-stalm. hut was arrested an hour later
by the officers, wbo were Informed of tbe
killing by Chsrles HlMenpidt, the barkeep
er mid only witness of th shooting. Spll
ker was bom in Mlnden, Westphalia, where
be went to school, and wss raiaed with
Kornhardt, and tbe girl wbo was to be
come his wife. When be came to this
country It was understood that Ibe epara
tlon of tbe lovers was only to be for a few
months. When Spllker went Into bnslness
and everything looked prosperous, he wrote
to the girl to come to St. Louis. Her rela

that tbe Government is convinced tbat war
between France and China Is inavitabl.
Preparation! to prevent hostilities are being
made rapidly and oponly. Orders bave
been issued to speedily refit and make teady
for servioe several men-of-war at Sheer
ness, and the mechanics In tb Government
Ship yards there are working night and day
under pressure, In tbe fulfillment of these
Instructions. Tbe Government may thus
have questions of po.icy In Chlae waters
added to ills embarrassment la Egypt.
The Egyptian question alone, however,
rosy prove sufficient to threaten Mr. Glad
stone's tenure If be should be as reluot
ant to act in hearty accord with th other
members of the Cabinet aa he waa to assent
to tbelr firm postton that the British troop
should not be removed from Egypt. The
rationale of keeping a garrison . there Is, of

present small contingency there Is manifest
ly Inadequate for such a policy, and there
are rumors tbat additions will be made tt It.
the government Is evidently hesitating to
esnd the reinforcement. This looks like
tbe result of tbe Inharmonious feeling be

THE POPS WARNED.
The American bishops now In Rome have
warued the Pope tbat further med
dling on his part with Irish politics
i . weaken the attachment of
tbe Irish in America and imperil hla li flu
ence among them. This aotton Is supposed
to be due to tbe recent letter of tbe Pope to
the Irish clercy exhorting them to keep out
of political affairs. Tbe bishops have dur
ing their stay at Rome taken eysry op
portunlty to oppose tbe Intrigues of Mr.
Errington, tbe semi-official representative
of England at the Vai oan, to whom Is
credited tbe Inspiration ot the letter re
ferred to. This protest Is likely to gtve bis
Holiness a vivid idea of tbe strength of th
tte between the people ot Ireland and tbelr
brutbren ou tbe otuer sld of the Atlantic.
Cardinal Jacobinl, tb Papal Score,
tary ' of ' State, gave a ban
quet last night in honor of tbe
American bishops. It was a brilliant af
fair, and largely attended by leading church
dignitaries. Tbe visitors bave no room
for complaint of lack of attention and
honors from tbelr oo-rellslonisis tn th
Eternal City .
A SEPARATE SUEZ CANAL.
It Is conceded at thia time tbat the mis
sion of M. De Lesseps tn support of his
plea for nuking the Suez Canal parallel to
the present one Is a failure, and tbat th
British ship-owners will not be
dissuaded from their favorite
echeuie of a separate canal.
M. De Lessops so seldom falls In what ba
undertakes, however, that no one would
be surprised to see blm pluok some viotory
