Has American Dentist In Custody Before Passengers
Were Aware That Strange Couple Were Man And
' Woman For Whom Police Throughout World Have
Searched For Three Weeks
Father Point, Aug. 1. Charged
with tho murder and 'mutilation of
hio actress wife, Belle Elmore, in
London, Dr. II. H. Crlppen was ar
rested on the eteamshlp Montrose,
two miles oil Father Point, by Pro
Tincial Detectives McCarthy and
Dennis, who were accompanied by
Jaspoctor Dew of Scotland Yard. The
Ls Neve girl was arrested as a sus
pect. She was dressed as a boy.
The arrest was very dramatic. In
spector Dew boarded tho Montrose
disguised air a pilot, as Crlppen was
pacing tho deck with Surgeon Stew
art. He saw the pilot boat pulled by
but four seamen and remarked that
there seemed to bo a good many pi
lots in the boat, but 'ho niado no at
tempt to escapo. He continued to
promenade for ftvo minutes, after
which Crlppen felt a tap on his
shoulder and turned to face Inspector
Dew in uniform.
When Dew touched Crlppen on the
shoulder, all the latter said was: "I
am glad the suspense is. over. Tho
anxiety was too great for me
Crlppen was immediately talcen to
cabin B, while Miss Le Neve remain
ed in room G, in a state of collapse.
This is the room that "John Phllo
Robinson, merchant of Detroit, and
John George Robinson, student," had
occupied. Miss Lo Neve was fur
nished girl's clothing as soon as the
arrest was made.
Made Trip In Fog.
A sharp, cold wind blow in from
tho east, and with it the fog from
tho Atlantic. Suddenly four masts
and a funnel loomed indistinctly
nway on the waters where the sun
polne held sway before. Before the
shadows of the wharf a skiff shot out

In the skitf sat four sallormen, pea
Jacketed, brass-buttoned, vizor-capped
officers of tho pilot service. They
rowed hard but clumsily, -with grim
determination In each stroke.
Aboard the steamer Montrose, five
or six miles down the river, n nerv
ous, careworn passenger paced the
"Half speed," rang tho bells from
"What are wo doing now?" inquir
ed the nervous passenger of Dr.
Stewart, the ship's surgeon.
"This, is Father Point, Mr. Robin
eon, and we take the pilot aboard
here," replied the medical man.
"You can see the boat coming out to
meet us there."
"There seem to bo a good, many
pilots in the boat, doctor," remarked
Mr. Robinson, scanning the approach
ing craft with evident anxiety.
"Yea," said Dr. Stewart, "there are
"Stop," clanged the bell from tho
bridge to the engino room. The men
i the skiff rested on their oars, a
rcpe uncoiled neatly and the craft
was warped gently alongside tho ves
eel. Inspector Dew of Scotland Yard,
dressed in a pilot's uniform; Chief
McCarthy and ex-Chief Dennis, like
wise attired, as well as Francois Qau
dreau, tho actual pilot, climbed to
tho deck of tho Montrose,
Dew's hand was oxtonded to tho
aptain, but his oyo passed on.

the wheelhouse. Dr. Stewart and
Robinson passed so 'close to Dew that
the latter could have touched him.
Still not a move was made. Dew was
sizing up his quarry carefully, piti
lessly. There could bo no mistake.
Robinson coughed slightly and turned
toward the captain as though to ask
a question. He was perfectly uncon
Bclous of the true state of affairs.
"Captain," he said, almost jovially,
tiltlngT his gray fedora hat to the back
of his head. But that was all. His
face became a blank, his knees shook
together, and his arms went up as
though to protect himself.
"I want to see you below a mo
ment," said Dew, with his character
istic list. Then turning to Chief Mc
Carthy he said, "That's tho man."
"I arrest you in the name of tho
king," said McCarthy. "You aro my

taken down In writing and may bo
used against you at your trial."
Passengeis and crew knowing for

to the front, and McCarthy htutlod
his prisoner, not unkindly, down be

narrow ship's stairs Crlppen said:

Secretary of the Treasury In Cleve

cratic Candidate For President In
1896 but Refused Use of Name.
Now York, Aue. 1. After an ill
ness dating from last Tuesday, John
Griffin Carlisle, Cleveland's secretary
of the treasury, died at the Hotel
Westcott. With him at tho bedside
were his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Wil
liam K. Carlisle, and his two grand
daughters, Mrs. Frederick L. Allen
and Mrs. Louis Sherman Pitkin, the
latter of Now Haven.
Mr. Carlislo was seriously 111 in St.
Vincent's hospital last November, but
recovered sufficiently to return to his
Washington home. He camo to New
York ten day3 ago. His illness was
diagnosed as acute Indigestion.
John G. Carlisle had ceased to be
a national figure long ago, but for
many years of his life he commanded
public attention throughout the coun
try by reason of his service at Wash
ington In the house and in the sen
ate and finally In the cabinet. He
spent his younger ycarsln his native
state of Kentucky, his middle life at
Washington and his latter years In
New York. He held public office prac
tically all the time from his twenty
fifth year to his Blxty-third, having
served in the assembly and senate of
Kentucky before he was sent to
Son of a Farmer.
Mr. Carlisle was the son of a farm
er and was born on Sept. 5, 1835, in
Campbell (now Kenton) county, Ky.
He went to the common school and
studied at home after driving the
plow. Then he taught school, and at
his leisure studied law. He removed
to Covington, Ky., and became a
clerk in tho law office of Governor J.
W. StevenBon, and was admitted to
the bar when he was 23 years old.
He was already familiar with politics
and the next year he was elected to
the lower house of the Kentucky leg
islature, where he served four terms.
In 18C8 he was a delegate-at-large
to the national Democratic conven
tion In New York and in 187G he was
one of tho alternate Tllden electors-at-large
from Kentucky. He was lieu
tenant governor of Kentucky from
1871 to 1875.
Was Noted Fighter.
His state sent him to the house of
representatives in the Forty-fifth con
gress, and there for many years he
fought side by side with Roger Q.
Mills of Texas and William It. Morri
son of Illinois, fighting the Republi
cans always and the Democrats
sometimes, for tariff reform. In the
Forty-eighth congress Carlisle ousted
Randall and became speaker of the
house. After the death of Senator
Beck, Kentucky elected Mr: Carlisle
as his successor in the federal sen
ate. His power was so great that It
was supposed that In all probability
Kentucky would keep him In the sen
nte until his death, falling some ex

DOVE OF PEACE
Union Willing To Arbitrate, Company, However, Refuses
To Recognize Organization Or Permit Men To Wear
Union Buttons-Reinforcements Arrive And National
Guard Has Restored Order In Ohio's Capital-Business
Men Meet And Oiscuss Arbitration
Columbus, O., Aug. 1. With a view
to effecting an early settlement of
the local streetcar strike, which has
resulted--in the bringing here of 3,500
state militiamen and the complete
paralysis of business in the down
town business district. Governor Har
mon Is conducting negotiations with
the officials of tfie Columbus Railway
and Light company and the streetcar
men's union, but as both sides seem
determined to fight it out to a finish,
the prospects for a peaceful settle
ment are not bright.
The union men are willing to arbi
trate, and say they will be satisfied
with the decision of several promi
nent citizens or the state board of
arbitration. The officials of the com
pany refuse to commit themselves
regarding a settlement or to state
what concessions they will grant.
They sa; they are willing to allow
the men to go back to work if they
will abide by their wishes, one of
which is that the unionists refrain
from wearing their union buttons.
However, they positively refuse to
recognize th union.
Ask Compulsory Arbitration.
Men representing the business in
terests of the city are holding a
meeting in the chamber of commerce
today, at which the proposition to
ask the governor to call an extra ses
sion of the legislature to pass a com
pulsory arbitration law for public ser
vice corporations, with a court of re
View, is being discussed.
Although cars of the Columbus
Railway and Light company are be
ing operated on regular schedules
under strict military protection, the
strike of the union conductors and
motormen Is as far from settlement
as it was at the time the men walked
out at 4 o'clock Sunday morning,
July 24. Both sides to the contro
versy are standing pat and the riding
public Is standing with the strikers
by refusing to patronize .the cars.
Many whose sympathies are not with
the union men abstain from riding fori
fear of coming in contact with bricks,
stones or rotten eggs.
The 3,500 state troops have very
little difficulty in maintaining order,
as the people In general take their
presence here in good humor and
"move on" when requested to do so.
The mass meeting in the state
house grounds was largely attended
and passed off without the slightest
