On the Panama Treaty
Western Trip of
Washington, .March, 17. By diree
tion of Secretary Boot "the war depart
ment yesterday embarked on the ex
tensive work of compiling and pubftsn
ing a complete roster of the officers
anil enlisted men of the Union and
Confederate armies. This Is the sec
retary's own project, and he succeed
ed In impressing congress with the
idea that it would be only just and
fair to the south to place on the ofh
cial lists the names of the Confed
erate soldiers, in order that their de
scendants may trace their family his
tories with accuracy. The north
through separate publications has cov

Southern Records Were Scattered.
But the southern records and
archives, never very complete, were
scattered and destroyed owing to the
outcome of the war, and it is known
that many frauds are practiced on the
lenevoIent, nnd many families lack
important links in their histories, be
cause of the loss of these records. Sec
retary Itoot. in calling this matter to
the attention of congress, said that the
department was constantly in receipt
of appeals from state otlicials, his
torical societies and patriotic or me
morial associations for transcripts of
the military records of state troops,
to answer which would cost more than
a million dollars, so that the most
economical way would be to publish
a crouiplete roster.
Blue and Gray Together.
The publication will be enormous in
size, iucuding no less than thirty vol
umes as large as the rebellion records.
The northern names will be published
with the southern because It is de
sired to have all of these data in one
compilation, instead of being scattered
through various state books. More
over, it is felt to be a graceful thing
to bracket the names of the men who
wore the blue and the gray. In or
der to carry out this purpose Secre
tary Boot yesterday sent a letter to
the governors of all states which fur
nished troops for the Confederate arm
ies, stating the purpose' of the con
gressional enactment, and asking their
co-operation in executing the same.
TEST ON THE CANAL TREATY
Show, a Solid Democratic Vote of 24 and
Republican, of 46.
Washington, March 17. The senate
spent six solid hours in executive ses
sion yesterday in its effort to act on
the amendments to the Tanama canal
treaty in preparation for the final vote
on the treaty today. The greater -part
of the day was devoted to debate on
the matter of insuring United States
defense of the canal, the Democrats
contending that the "United States
should be given the initiative in that
respect, and the Republicans urging
that the interests of this country aro
sufficiently safeguarded by the terms
of the treaty as It stands. A sub
stitute offered by Bacon for the pro
vision of the treaty placing the de
fense of the canal primarily in -the
hands of the government of Colombia
resulted in a test vote.
As a result of their frequent con
ferences since Gorman's assumption of
leadership the Democrats cast a solid
vote in support of the amendment,
the Republicans voting as solidly
against It. The Vote was twenty-four
for the Democratic amendment to forty-six
against it During the day Mor
gan offered a number of his amend
ments, but none of them received inore
than ten or twelve votes. The treaty
will be ratified today by a very large
majority and. .without amendment. .On

daughter of the late Edwin L. Bur

at the inquest into Burdick's death be
fore Judg Murphy yesterday. Ma

swered in monosyllables Whenever
possible. It was "Yes" or "No," or
when those replies would iiot suffice
she- used ns few words as possible.
She was not easily confused, and there
was no sign of agitation or emotion
when the dttrict attorney questioned
her closely regarding the events that
occurred at the time her father was
murdered. Coatsworth began by
speaking kimly to the girl and cait
fully choosing his words in putting
questions to her. Later, he iired ques
tions in rapid succession, all of whlcn
were met with replies both sharp and
Nothing of Importance ! Told.
Nothing of importance was elicited
from her while she was on the stand,
and the district attorney finally gave
her up In despair. She said that her
Rrandmother I 111 first informed her
that her father was ill in his den. be
fore Dr. Marcy arrived and befoe Mrs.
Hull knew positively, according to her
own testimony, that it was Burdick's
body lying on the couch. The district
attorney tried to get Marian to tell
why she apparently took so little in
terest in her father's illness when she
was told of it by her grandmother.
Marian replied that she knew when
it was proper for her to know- Grand
mother Hull would tell her.
Knew of the Divorce Proceedings,
She loved her father aud he had al
ways lcen ginxl to her, but she would
not admit that there was anything
wrong In her not inquiring ulxwt his
Illness, or that she should have done
differently. Marian admitted that she
knew of the divorce proceedings in
stituted by Burdick against her mot ti
er. She sympathized with her father,
but would not admit that she thought
he was right in driving her mother
from home. Neither would she ad
mit that she knew of her mother meet
ing Arthur R. Peiuiell.
WHAT THE CA11MAI KNEW
They Could Not Identify 1'eople Who
Were Under Suspicion.
Dr. William M. Marcy, the family
physician and the first person to see
the dead body after the murderer cov
ered it up, was the first witness of
the day. Dr. Marcy admitted that he
told Dr. Howland, the medical exam
iner, that if it was suicide or looked
suicidal it would be all the lictter for
the family to make it out a case of
suicide. Later he agreed with Dr.
Howland that the suicide theory was
untenable. William V. Delahunt, a
cabman who took an unknown man
from in front of the Tifft House to
the corner of Ashland avenue and
Bryant street on the night of the mur
der, told his story. ,
"Did you afterwards see Arthur R.
Fcnnell in- rhe district attorney's of
fice?" said District Attorney Coats
worth. The witness replied, yes, but
added that he could not swear he was
the man he 'had taken to Ashland av
enue and Bryant.
Ilackman Jeddo told of taking a par
ty of three on the night of the mur
der from the corner of North Division
street to tfie corner of Ashland avenue
and Summer streets. In the party
were a man. a woman alout 00 years
old, with light red hair, and an older
woman. At Summer and Main streets
the man and the older woman left the
carriage and lie took the young wom
an to the corner of Ashland avenue
and Summer streets. She walked down
Ashland In the direction of Burdick's
house. He saw the same woman about
two hours later downtown.
But when he was asked If the wom
an he saw that night and Miss Ma
rian W. Hutchinson were one and the
same he said he could not say; they
resembled each other was all he could
Patrolman Meyer told of meeting n
lone woman rear the Burdick home at
1:10 o'clock on the morning of the mur
der. He would not be aide to identify
the woman if he again met her.

Alleged to Have "Removed" Them at
$100 for Each Women His
Philadelphia, March 17. rolice au
thorities have directed the opening of
thirt3'-four graves, having obtained evi
dence which leads them to believe that
George Hossey, the negro "herb doe
tor," is responsible for at least that
many deaths. Hossey is In jail as an
accessory to the murder . of William.
O. Danze, whose widow Is churned
with having administered to her; hus
band slow poison given by the negro.
'"We do not know how many poison
ing cases can le traced to Hossey,"
said a police official yesterday, "but
thus far we have secured evidence
that has warranted us in directing the
opening of thirty-four graves. This
stop will Itegin at once, and we be
lieve the result will show that As
sistant District Attorney Shooy was
not exaggerating when he branded
Hossey as an arch-poisoner.
Looks for Startling: Developments.
"This case is assuming proportions
far lieyond the comprehension of those
connected with it at the time Hossey
was arrested. The real investigation
Is only beginning, and Iwfore it pro
ceeds much farther startling develop
ments will come. There may bo sev
eral arrests, but they are not likely to
come lefore the bodies exhumed have
been examined by the chemists." De
tectives are searching for a white
woman who is alleged to have repre
sented Hossey, in the preliminary deal
ings with his patrons.
Incriminating Letters Found.
Seventy letters, written mostly by
women, nave been found in the home
of Hossey. These letters are said to
le of an ineriininatiifg nature. They
vary little in their turns, and. it Is
asserted, show that Hossey charged
$100 for every case. Some of the let
ters polut t0 payment of the foe in
installments. IJossey was arrested lust
Friday and was accused of being an
accomplice of Mrs. Catherine Danze,
arrested on the cluirge of poisoning
her husband about eighteen months
ago. After his arrest the police di!

"murder mill." the promoters of which
took contracts to kill people at the
uniform rate of $100 a head.
Subtle Poison Does the Work.
A subtle poison which did the work
without leaving the usual traces is
alleged to have enabled Hossey to car
ry on a grewsome business. Indica
tions were that the majority of the
patrons of the mill" were women who
desired to free themselves from trou
blesome husbands, whose money was
more desirable than their .companion

with experts best qualified to judge
of the racing qualities of ShamrocK
III, which will be launched this after
noon, indicate their absolute confi
dence that the yacht is the best ever
built on this side of the Atlantic. As
a piece of shipbuilding it would e
hard to excel. Many new ideas both
in design aud material are cmlwdied

trim and racy to the last degree, and
there is little wonder that those who
best understand the qualities of the
boat exject victory.
Shamrock III is not at all patterned
after Constitution or any other United
Statesan boat. It Is thoroughly Brit
ish, both in conception nnd execution.
It is stiorter over all than the preced

There has been no attempt to bid for
