Chicago. July 5. Under an assumed
name, Sadie Fabian, aged 17, the heir
ess to a large California estate, is liv
ing in seclusion in one of the large
t itles of America or Canada, ignorant
of her real name and rights.
I ne story dates back to lc years
ago. when Morris Fabian, poor and un

Burdened with a wife and three daugh

While disheartened and discouraged
his wife died and he allowed his three
daughters to be adopted by strangers
Rebecca Fabian and a younger sis

Shortly afterward the young sister
died. Sadie Fabian, the youngest of
the three, was adopted by neighbors in
Struck It Hleh.
Morris Fabian went to several cities
seeking to gain a livelihood, but he
was not successful. After a short resi
deuce in Sioux City. Ia.. he went to San
Francisco, where he entered the liquor
business. Here fortune smiled un him.
The small investment brought large
returns and before many years passed
be was regarded as one of the wealthy
men of San Francisco. He then made
Inquiries regarding the three children
he had given away in adoption. He dis
covered that one had died and that Re
becca was living in comfort with rela

Sadie Fabian, however, could not be
found. Several private detectives
tried to trace her. but were unsuccess
ful. There were few clews to follow.
Investigation showed that the family
she was given to had moved to Chi
cago and were living on West Madison
street. All efforts to locate them have
so far failed.

Joel Carris, a grandfather of Sadie
Fabian, died recently and left a sum

relatives until the girl makes her ap

St. Louis, July 5. By a vote of 0'.

This action almost entirely changed
the situation so far as the divided sen
timent in the New York delegation
was concerned. Senator Hill was led
to remark that with another small ac
cession Parker would be selected on
the first ballot.
The news was received at Tammany
headquarters in an entirely different
way. Leader Murphy at first refused
to believe it. saying he had been as
sured late this evening the delegation
would support Pattison. After the an
nouncement of Pennsylvania's decision
had been made to them and they had
somewhat recovered from their sur
prise they still gave it as their view
that there would be enough votes held
by individual states not instructed for
Parker or voting for individual candi

statement From New York.
Two important statements bearing
on the Gorman situation came from
the New York state delegation today.
One. emanating from the Parker head
quarters was to the effect that Senator
Gorman's expected letter would say
that he declined to be a candidate and
that already the Maryland delegation
had received notice of it. Ex-Senator
Hill professed to know nothing of
this, but said: "We know that we
will nominate Parker." William F.
Sheehan. who is in charge of the work
of securing delegates, said: "We
have reason to believe that Senator
Gorman will not be a candidate and
we already know that he will not al

the effect that a poll of delegations
showed that it was impossible for Par
ker to obtain more than a bare major

lots, and that after the first few bal
lots there would be concentration on

for Parker. Leader Charles Murphy
reiterated the statement that Parker
could not carry New York state, but
he did not dwell much on the Cleve

The Hearst people remained buoy
ant during the day and the managers
say all delegates instructed and

Hearst to the last. They were assured
by John P. Hopkins, of the Illinois
delegation, that Hearst would receive
the solid vote of Illinois as long as he
was in the field.

score of tramps going west on a freight
train were held up by three compan

through the arrest of three men as
suspects. The victims lost $20 and
at the point of pistols were forced to

over to their captors. One of the
victims then was forced to stand in a
corner of a box car while the robbers
shot at bim. After he had fallen,
wounded by several bullets, he was
thrown from the moving train, and
the robbers fled.

Power to Go Back of
St. Louis, July 5. The national com
mittee reported in favor of seating the
Hopkins delegates in all Illinois con
tests. St. Louis, July 5. The sub-committee
reported to the national committee
today that it was the unanimous opin
ion of its members that the Hopkins
delegates should be allowed to retain
their seats. The report was concurred
in and the Hopkins people will hold
their seats unless ousted by action of
the committee on credentials. This
is the coniest waged by M. F. Duulap
against John P. Hopkins ami Ben T.
Cable as delegaies-at-large.
Stnte ('(invention Supremo.
The decision of the sub-committee
was based on the ground that the state
convention was supreme and that
fights in district caucuses are not
proper matters for adjudication by the
national committee; that it is not the
business of the national committee to
go behind the records of the conven
tion. The fight should, in the opinion of
the committee, have been made in
the state before the completion of tne
record of the convention. This show
ed that the Hopkins people are regu
larly accredited delegates and sus
tained their contention that the na
tional committee did not have the
right to decide the contest.

The Harrison and Hearst men were
greatly disheartened by their defeat
and announced their intention of car

After a continuous session of nine
hours, the sub-committee to which
was submitted the evidence in 14 con
tests in the state of Illinois went into
executive session at midnight with ev
ery indication that their verdict would
be a victory for John P. Hopkins and
his faction. The evidence in each case
is practically the same. It related to
the convention at Springfield, where
Chairman Quinn was aocused of riding
rough shod over the rights of two
thirds of the delegates of names of
men not elected or even submitted to
the state caucuses as delegates to the
national convention. Quinn vigorously
defended his course in the state con
vention, and John P. Hopkins made an
elaborate defense of all his actions
before and after the convention. The
statement of these two gentlemen sev
eral times provoked acrimonious re
plies from the contestants and the de
bate became so pointed at one stage
that Senator Stone of Missouri, chair
man of the sub-committee, suggested
the gentlemen from Illinois go outside
