pected Man u Ex-Member of the Club
Expelled for Total Depravity.
New York, Dec. 31. The World says
Captain George McGlJEkey. chief of thi
detective bureau, firmly believes that
he has solved the mystery surrounding
the attempt to kill Harry Cornish,
physical instructor of the Knicker
bocker Athletic club, by sending him
poison through the mails. At 9 o'clock
last night Captain McGIuskey stated
that he would have the culprit in
custody within twelve- hours. The
name of tbesuspected murderer is with
held from pub'.li ation. Isst its announce
ment should defeat the ends of Justice.
The man under surveillance was for
merly a member of the Knickerbocker
Athletic club. He was at one time a
man of high social and financial stand
ing In this city. but" In late years,
through evil habits and evil associa
tions, his descent was rapid.
Sn.peeted Man Expelled from the Club.
From being unpopular in the athtic
club he latterly developed Into a person
with whom the members of the club
thought they could not associate. It
was the conviction for some time before
action was taken that he was unfit to
be a member of the club. Considera
tion, however, for his rat high stand
ing and the rememberancc of the light
in which ha had once ben held pre
vented thecluh from taklr.g the decisive
Etep of expelling him. Things Anally
reached ruch a pass. however, that
nothing ele remained to be done. A
special meeting of the club was called
toact up-in hlscase. He waslgnominlou
ly expelled. It is well known that he
from the first associated Cornish with
the revelation of facts whic-h led to this
action. It Is understood as a matter of
fact that Cornish did hold the man In
contempt and d'd not hesitate to ex
press that sentiment and to give his
reasons for so doing.

All who know the person In question
find tut one word with which tocharr.c

type of hopeless and malicious degener

-of the eulh Iii expelling him with bitter
resentment. It is also said that he hpd
concentrated this feHir.g upon certain
members of the club in particular, and
conspicuously among them was Corn
ish. With these ger.eral facts to guide
them the police set out to find eviclt-nce
that would connect this person with th
deadly parcel which was dclivercl to
Cornish by the portman at the Knicker
bocker Athletic club on Saturday. The
first definite clue was the tracing of the
little sliver toothpick holder which came
with the parcel of poison from the man
ufacturer to the retail dealer, r.nd from
him to a purchaser by name to the
This dealer, it is understood, has a
place of business In Hoboken. The po
lice visited him and obtained from h'm
a minute and detailed description of th'
man who purchased the silver article in
question. This description tallied with
almost photographic exactness with the
appearance, clothing and general man
nerisms of the man under suspicion by
Captain McGlusky and his detectives.
The man's personality is sufficiently
marked to make such a desc ripth n ir.nr?
than ordinarily easy. It removed ail
shade of doubt from the minds of the
police and all their energies are being
now devoted to completing the chain of
evidence against the suspect-
The operations of the police have been
so skillful and secret that the supposed
criminal could have no Inkling that
they were on his trail. This chain of
evidence is now taid to b? almost com
plete, and the arrest may be made at
any moment. It is expected ..iat at the
very latest the prisoner will be safe at
police headquarters by noon today.

Major Daly's Report oa the Beef as It
Reached the Soldiers.
Washington. Dec. 31. As a result of
the issue between General Miles and
General Eagan concerning the quality
of the beef supplied the army, and on
the written request of General Eagan,
the war department has issued a. special
order for the assembling of a board of
officers in Washington on next Tuesday
to inquire into the general subject of
the quality of the beef supplies, and
particularly as to the responsibility for
the loss of 300,000 pounds of refrigerated
beef sent to I'orto Rico when the ex
pedition under General Miles was there.
The 300,000 .pounds of beef referred to
was shipped from Newport News to
Porto Rico about the time that word
came from General Miles that he had
supplied himself with fresh beef taken
on the island. The refrigerated beef
made the trip to Porto Rico and back,
but by the time it reached Montauk
Point it is understood to have spoiled.
Repor ton Tinned Roast Beef.
General Eagan yesterday received
from Lieutenant Colonel Smith, the
commissary officer at Chicago, a report
made by Armour & Co., who furnished
the army a large part of its tinned
roast beef. The report was in response
to specific interrogatories from General
Eagan. It says In sul stance that "our
system of preparing and putting up
our roast and corned beef Is by the Ap
pert process, which was Invented in
1809. This is a process that has been
well known to scientific inquiry for the
entire period since the date of its in
vention, but Its commercial use may be
said to be limited to the iast thirty
years by all manufacturers and dealers
in canned meats. Nothing has been
discovered that produces superior re
sults, and it would be difficult for
any invention to supersede that of Ap
pert. inasmuch as there never has been
any complaint of deterioration of the
contents of cans put up by this pro
cess. t'sed by All Clamtea of People.
"All grocers and meat markets have
these goods and have had them on sale
during this length of time and no ob
jection has been raised to their use by
consumers, nor has there been any de
trimental results following their con
sumption. On the contrary, the use of
this description- ofgoods is annually
increasing. 'Tney are ufieflTby all classes

"No chemicals of cny description are

preparation of our tinned roast beef. In
reply to your question as to "whether
any packer has ever
used any chemicals of any kind what
soever in the treatment of the refrig
erated heef. whether any chemicals
whatsoever touched the meat itself we
beg to state that at no time
during the past nor at present, do we
use chemicals of any kind whatsoever
and that therefore the refrigerated meat
furnished your department could not
have been touched by any chemical of
any description. The meat fur

process of any k:nd whatsoever."
AS IT tOOKEII TO MAJOR DALY
Who Examined Some of the Canned Beef
at the Front.
Washington. Dec. 31. The war inves
tigating commission held a brief ses
sion and adjourned until Tuesday, Jan.
S. The most Important thing the com
mission gave out for publication was a
report on the beef controversy by
Major W. H. Daly, chief surgeon at
army headquarters at Tampa prior to
the sailinc of the Shafter exnecMtion
He says that at Tampa. Jacksonville, j
Chickamauga and in Porto Rico- "I !
found the fre.h beef to be apparently
preserved with fecret chemicals, which
destroys its ratural flavor, and which
I also believe to be detrimental to the
health of the troops.
"'While on duty at the headquarters
of the army at Tampa, at the time of
the embarkation of the 'Shafter expe
dition." Colonel Weston, the efficient
chief commissary, showed me a quarter
of reef that had already as a tea:
been sixty hours in the sun without be
ing perceptibly tainted, so far as the
ense of smell could detect. It is Im
possible to keep fresh beef so long un
tainted in the sun in that climate with
out the use of deleterious preserves,
such as boric acid, salicylic acid, or ni
trate of potash injected Into it in quant
ities likely to te hurtful to the health
f the consumer. At Ponce. Porto Rico,
much of the beef arriving on the trans
port from the United States was also
of the same character, being apparently
preserved by injected chemicals to aid
efficient cold storage.

RECORD V0T&E OF 1RADE

Tiew of the 1-ailures of 1898.
New York, Dec. 31. Bradstreet's says:
Holiday quiet in general demand, sus
tained activity in industrial lines, par
ticularly iron and steel; exceptionally
large shipments of goods on orders,
liberal cereal exports and specially
heavy dealings in speculative markets
are features calling for notable mention
in the closirjr week of the war. Firm
ness In price is likewise an encouraging
feature in most staples. Wheat, though
showing a reaction, is higher on the
week and other cereals are in sym
pathy. The pig iron demand grows.
and prices for this product and for steel
rails, sieel billets, p'.ates and wire rods
are all higher. Concisely stated the re
ports received as to the years business
in all sections of the country point to
an unprecedented volume of domestic
and export trade, which Is reflected in
bank clearances that break the high
record of 1S92.
There were 11.638 failures in the fnit
ed States in 1S5S. involving liabilities
of $141,137,117, a decrease from 1S37 in
number of 11.2 per cent, and in liabili
ties of 9.5 per cent. Compared with
1S96 and 1895 the proportion of decrease
shown- is oven larger, and compared
with 1S96 failures were fewer by 25 per
cent, and liabilities smaller by 61 per
cent. Decreases are also shown when
compared with 1391, a year of large
trade but of numerous and costly fail
ures: but compared with 1892 thera is
an increase shown of 13 per cent, in
number and CO per cent, in liabilities.
The tendency of failures toward the
normal is illustrated by the fact that
the percentage of assets to liabilities is
the smallest reported since 1892.
