Van Dine's mother and sweetheart,
Mamie Dunne, visited him in the po

hurried to Chicago to escape danger
of violence at the hands of the crowd
of Indiana farmers who hail assem
bled, and last, night all confessed and
gave the details of enough crimes to
insure them death on the gallows.
The escape of the trio from the
dwgeut in the woods to which they
were traced through the snow by de
tectives was effected when the detec
tives withdrew and flagged a train on
which to place their wounded that
they might be taken to Chicago.
This opportunity was seized upon
by the fugitives, who ran from the
dugout and boarded a Pennsylvania

a crisis before the polico and railway
detectives came up. The fugitives were

the past week than at any recent date.
Improvement was most conspicuous In
heavy wearing apparel and kindred
lines. Another encouraging feature
was the resumption ef work at the
New York mills, although there is still
much idle machinery, especially in -the
textile and iron imiustries.
It is at last possible to perceive an
improvement in the denrind for pi;;
iron, elue to the exhaustion ef supplies
by consumers, the extensive reduction
in output and absence of further price
concessions. Jiusiness is by no means
brisk nor is there any expectation of
wholesome activity eluring the remain

ielence of returning confidence with the

facts of which he had personal knowl
edge. This lid not exclude his story
of the dinner incident, which resulted
in tLe issue of subpoenas for three
other witnesses, among whom is Gen
eral F.rooke. In his testimony Major
Kuncie explained that he had acted as
the confidential adviser of General
Wooel for nearly two years, and that
they lived together at Santiago. It
was while they weere living in the same
house that Baker went to Santiago in
search of material for a magazine ar
ticle. Kuncie Asked to Write the Article.
A meeting was arranged between
the men and a dinner followed, said
Major Kuncie-, at which was discussed
the plan to have published an article
which w ou hi exploit the success of
General Wooel in dealing with affaire
at Santiago, and draw a comparison
with the situation at Havana unfavora
ble to the ael ministration of General
Brooke. Major Kuncie declartd that
Gensral Wood asked him to write the
article1, and that he had done so. The
article was given to Baker and pub

of Major Kuncie.
Wood Knew Wl;at Wan Written.
He asserted, that General Wood
knew what the article contained, and
that they hael coires'ioudence about it
as the result of the furor createel by
its publication. He offered to proeluce
copies of letters which he had written
to General Wood concerning his own
defence. It was not until after Gener
al AVond succeHMled General Brooke
that the article was published. The
effe-ct was a severance of the relations
between the witness and (Sen. Wood.
The witness said that when the secre
tary of Avar went to Cuba following
the disclosures to the war department
the suggestion was made, e'ither by
the secretary of General Wooel. that
he (the witness) be court martialed for
writing the art id? and that he hael
in effect invited the court martial.
Kuncie will appear on the witness
