TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS FINE
For Wearing Calico Dress and 1MJ
Penally for Selling
It is a singular fact, but none the less
true, that in Knglandin the year lTOOwomen
were not allowed to wear calico dresses at
all, and in 1721 a penalty or tiue of 5 was
laid upon the wearer, and the unfortunate
dealer who sold calico in those days had to
pay a penalty of $100 for the offense. It
is hardiy necessary to say that no one of
them ever undertook to sell more than one
dress pattern. The wompn of this country
may bless their lucky stars that nothing
has ever interfered with their privilege to
buy and wear calico to their heart's con
tent. Moreover, they can lie thankful that
they are able to purchase the best quality
the world produces riqlitlif re at home. The
goods of cne firm are especially sought after
by both consumers and dealers and their
recognized superiority is assured when the
name William iSimpson & Sons is found on

the storekeepers say, and they ought to know.

The Steamship Gaelic Brought the
United States Congressional Com
mittee from Honolulu.
AN AMERICAN UNION PARTY MEMORIAL
Senator CuUom Says When They Get Back
to Washington They Will Go to Work at
Once on Their Keport Justice Frear
and President Dole Expected, to Meat
the American Members at Washington.
San Francisco, Oct. 1. The steam
ship Gaelic arrived here from Hong
Kong and Yokohama, via Honolulu,
bringing the congressional committee
from the latter place. Under date of
September 23, the Honolulu corre
spondent writes that the congression
al commission, having completed ita
work. Senators Cullom and Morgan
and Congressman Hitt left for Wash
ington, where they will hold a meet
ing on November 14, which will be at
tended by Justice Frear, and probably
by President Dole.
Loaded with Petitions.
During the last few days of their
stay in Honolulu a number of peti
tions were sent to the commission by
various foreign residents. The Amer
ican Union party, which claims to
represent the American element in
the islands, presented a memorial re
questing that the commission recom
mend a liberal form or territorial gov
ernment. The memorial further fa
vors a liberal suffrage law, the exten
sion of the United States tariff and
shipping laws to Hawaii.
A Suggestion as to Governor.
The memorial asserts that it Is for
the best interests of the island that
the first governor of Hawaii should
be one who is not bound by any tie,
political or otherwise, to any party or
class of residents in Hawaii. In speak
ing of the work of the commission,
Senator Cullom said:
"We have done much as possible in
the time at our disposal, and we have
covered the ground thoroughly. When
we meet in Washington, we will go to
work at once on our report."
The troop ship Senator arrived at
Honolulu from Manila September IS,
nnd will remain long enough to over
haul the machinery. While in the
China sea she encountered a typhoon,
and lay too for 32 hours. She had most
of the railing andeverything movable
on her forward deck torn away, but
suffered little serious damage.
THE TITLE DOESN'T PASS.
Gen. John B. Gordon Says the Title Daugh
ter of the Confederacy" Died with
Miss Winnie Davis.
Reynolds, Ga., Oct. 1. Gen. John
B. Gordon, commander-in-chief of the
United Confederate veterans, is at hia
plantation near here resting, and at
intervals pursuing his literary work.
The general was shown the dispatch
from Chicago in which Misa Lucy Hill
claims to have had the title "Daughter
of the Confederacy" conferred upon
her by her southern friends since the
death of Winnie Davis.
The general was asked if the title
could be thus transferred, and replied
with great earnestness:
"Emphatically no. Misa Winnie
was the only daughter of President
Davis, born in the confederate 'Whi.e
House, during the lifeof the confeder
acy. As Davis was the only presi
dent of the confederate government,
no daughter of any other official could
truly represent the confederacy. For
that reason it would not be appropri
ate to call even the daughter of Gen.
Jlobert K. Lee the 'Daughter of the
Confederacy. To designate anyone
else as 'Daughter of the Confederacy
would not only be inappropriate and
meaningless, but would deprive the
the title of all its value.
"In view of the nature of the case
no one except Miss Winnie Davis is en
titled to be called the 'Daughter of the
Confederacy.' That title was unique
and peculiarly her own, and is very
properly to be placed upon her tomb.
To designate anyone else by that title
would be almost a sacrilege.
"As with Jefferson Davis passed the
title of president of the confederacy,
so with Miss Winnie has passed that
of 'Daughter of the Confederacy."

A DOUBLE 1 RAGED 7.
A Toang Woman, Demented by the Death
of Her Father, Kills Her Moth
er and Herself.
Pittsburgh, . Ia., Oct.. .3. Berth
Bielstein killed her mother yesterday
and later put four bullets into her
own body from the effects of which
she cannot recover. The only explan
ation the girl has given for her terri
ble deed were these words:
Was Tired of Life.
"I was tired of life. It held no pleav
are for me. I wanted to die and did
not want my mother to live and fret
over my death. For that reason I
What the Son and Brother Saw.
The crime, which was committed
some time early in the morning, was
not discovered until late in the day,
when a son of the murdered woman
came to the house to see his mother.
He went to her room and found her
body cold in death. A bullet wound
at the right side of the nose told the
story. The bed was covered with
blood and there was every indication
that death had ensued some hours be
fore. In a room adjoining that of the
mother the son found the body of his
sister. She was lying in a pool of blood
nnd in her right hand was clutched a
revolver, the implement of destruc
tion. Shot Three Times.
An examination of Mrs. Bielstein
showed that she had been shot three
times with a 4S-caIiber revolver. Om
shot had entered at the right side ol
the nose and had taken a downward
course through the neck and had cut
the seventh cervicle vertebrae. This,
the physicians say, must have caused
instant death. Another shot had en
tered the rifrht breast nnd the third
had passed through the right groin.
A Ouestlon of Only a Short Time.
An examination of the daughter'i
wounds convinced the physicians thai
her death was a question of only a
6hort time. A bullet from a 4S-ealibei
had torn its way through the righl
temple and had passed out at the tot
of the head. From both the entranc
and exit of the wound the brains were
oozing. A bullet from the same sized
revolver had been fired into her lefl
breast near the heart, and she had
nlso shot herself twice in the stomacr.
with a revolver of 22 caliber.
Why Sne Killed Her Mother.
To one of her brothers during a pe
riod of consciousness the girl told o)
the shooting of her mother. She saic
she went into the room with the re
volver in her hand. She had decided
to kill herself and knew that the
shock of her death would break hei
mother's heart, and concluded deatt,
would be preferable to her suffering!
on earth. Her mother, she said, was
Bleeping when she went to the room
She placed the revolver close to hei
breast and tired. On the report o:
ihe pistol the mother sat up in bee
nnd said to her. "Birdie, what are voi
doing." The answer was nnothei
shot, which, she says, was fired at hei
mother's face. This was evidently th
shot which entered Mrs. Bielstein'i
face and resulted in hef instant
death. One more wound was inflicted
F.eart-Uroken Over the Death or II el
Kreflerick Beilstein, the father ol
the family, was one of the best knowt
residents of Allegheny. He died sud
denly in December last from apoplexy
and since then Birdie, who was 2(
years old, is said to have lost all hei
youthful beauty. From the light
hearted, happy girl, she became t
quiet, depressed, despondent woman
Hence the friends of the family think
she was temporarily irsane when sh
committed the awful crime.

London,. Oct 4. Nancy Guilford,
the midwife of Bridgeport, Conn., or
the woman suspected of being Dr.
Guilford, was remanded at Bow-street
police court here yesterday for a week
after evidence had been presented
proving her identity with the woman
who landed at Liverpool last week,
from the steamer Vancouver. The ini

The Prisoner In Court.
Dr. Guilford was brought into court
between two policemen and placed in
the dock. The court was crowded.
She was handsomely dressed in ablack
silk skirt, plain silk waist and a fur
cape and wore a small black hat,
trimmed with feathers. She was not
veiled and did not show any emotion
or interest in the proceedings. Her
only sign of excitement was the occa

about her cape. Sue was given a seat
in the prisoner's dock.

then described the arrest. He said
that when he asked the prisoner's
name she said she was Mrs. McAllis

she had been in England for six
months past. To this the inspector
replied that he believed she was Nan
cy Guilford, and that he arrested her
on the charge of manslaughter com
mitted in the United States. There
upon the prisoner protested against
being in custody, denouncing the pro
ceedings as an outrage.
The Prisoner's Kffects.
Continuing, the inspector said he
then removed the prisoner to Bow
street. He examined a trunk and
handbag of American make, and the
clothing which the prisoner had in
her possession, and found that th-j

Berlin? Oct. 4. A most important
t revelation regarding American pork
I was made by the German govern

I ceived information that American pork
I has entered Germany without a certi-
I Inquiry made at the United States
embassy confirms the report that the
discovery had been made. Thousands
of tons of American pork have been im
ported through a number of custom
houses for years past without certifi
cates. The German government was
ignorant of the fact and denied it, an
ti 1 overwhelming evidence was ob
tained and submited by the embassy's
scientific attache, Mr. Smith. The em
bassy has requested the foreign oflice
to instruct the customs houses to in
sist in every case upon a certificate.
Xo American firm is implicated in
these importations, which explain the
alleged discovery of trichina in
American pork. German dealers in
American pork offered in .Tilly last a
reward of 1.0(10 marks for a case of
human trichinosis due to American
pork, and three months have passed
without anybody claiming the money.
