THE HOCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 1839.
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Thursday. Acoobt 8. 1889.
Blub Grass Kentucky did herself
proud on Monday in recording a demo
cratic majority of nearly 40.000, a clear
gain of 18.000 ovor two years ago. The
only state officer balloted for was that of
treasurer. The democrats also made a
decided gain in the legislature, electing
114 members against 102 two years ago,
and reducing the republican representa
tion to 24 . In face of the fact that the
republicans made a desperate effort to re
duce the democratic majority in the blue
grass state, the result la significant. It
shows ths the cunso of tariff reform is
gaining new adherents every day, and
that in spite of federal "pap" and a large
corruption fund, the people will not vote
to support the protection idea. We ex
tend greeting to Henry Wntterson and his
Star-eyed goilileas of reform in old
Haw I'rwtrrllon raterla.
Being awke.l, "IIns the character of
tariff doctrine undergone a change in re
cent yearn?" Senator Tn Voorhees re
Yes. The ideas of Henry Clay on the
tariil are no more in harmony with repub
lican policy today than are the ten com
mandmenta with robbing stagecoaches.
Henry (.lay's tariff was to lie temporary,
and in no case over 50 percent. The re
publican tariff is permanent, and often
exceeds 100 per cent. It does not depend
on the needs of revenue, but la for the
sole protection of the manufacturer. This
bold claim to a right to enrich one class
at the expenie of another is wrong, and
will be met at all times with the aggres
sive courage of men who know their cause
is just. This later idea of protection
legalizes plunderers like Carnegie to
grind the faces of the poor, to oppress
the helpless, to reduce wages and increase
prices of necexsaries. They devour wid
ows' houses. and for a pretense make long
prayers and build music halls for the poor.
Of such the Savior of mankind has said:
"They shall receive greater damnation .'
Carnegie's incomes is estimated at $4,120
a day. $71 B0 an hour, 2 86 a minute.
He gets more money for every breath he
draws than thousands of his men receive
for a wh.ile long day's labor. Here is a
picture from a locality near Pillatmrg,
where labor lives that was to have been
The houses are filled with pallid human
ity, black with age, paintlcss, carietless
and uncomfortable. In summer they are
dreadful places to live in. The bare hills
tower on each side, making a sort of urn
in which the hot sun turns the hot air
fetid. A walk through the streets tells
all. There are no disguises. The bare,
brown doorsteps, the tables seen through
the open doorway, the frowsy bed stand
ing by the oien window, all bear their
testimony of a comfortless life in plain
view of the passer-by. You may know
how much or how little the families have
to eat Courtship and marriage, sick
ness and sorrow, deaths and births all go
on in the purview of men, for poverty
can afford no secrets.
There is protection for you. Not
enough to keep children from being horn
in full view of the street, nor from dying
in the same way. Carnegie s income
from the labor of these men not from
his own leaves them so poor a mother
can find no hour in all the day in which
to suffer the pangs of child birth in pri
vacy. Suppose the Savior were on earth
again and would relate the story of Dives.
Every Carnegie in the land would say
that Christ meant him. If our merciful
Lord thought hell a proper place for
Dives and those like him. 1 have no rea
son to change the locality. At Bloom-
field Carnegie ordered a reduction of
wages, and when a strike was threatened
he forced the men with I'inkerton's
guards to submit in sileuce, and now they
tiend their heads to heavy tasks and take
such pay as he sees fit to give them.

lom, of Rockwell & Col lorn, one of the best
known lawyers in the city, confesses that be
baa forged John T. Blaisdell's name to notes
anfrroRatinfc $3sJ7,000. The forgeries have
been going on for over a year, and the pro
ceeds have been squandered in speculation
or invented in real estate. Mr. P.laisdell is a
millionaire, an ! the man who has rohlw.1
him was bis attorney, and bad access to his
client's papers. This afforded him an oppor
tunity to carry on his gigantic s hulling
II ow the Steal Was niacovereri.
Blaisdell's suspicions were aroused a few
weeks ago when E. A. Chamberlain, cashier
of the Security tiank. Informed him that Col
lom had in thn bank $:J0,O(MI worth of paper
indorsed by RlaisdolL The latter could ac
count for only gin.noo of the sum, and at
onoe Is-jran an investigation, which soon
showed that the accounts were seriously in
volved. Several brokers ami money loaners
were visited, nnd a tfi ent iiinonnt of fictitious
paper as discovered. Within a very short
perirsi the immense sum of $'JT,(KWi in notes
and other securities was discovered, but to
only part ot which Blaisdell's name was at
tached. A Rigid Examination.
Blaisdcll pronounced all the signatures
purporting to be his to lie forgeries. The
bank and Mr. Illaixlnll were equally inter
ested, and a rigid investigation was at once
set on foot. The matter was put into the
hands of ex-County Attorney Frank F.
Iavis, A privute detective was secured to
siiadow Collom. Prof. C. C. Curtiss was
secured as an expert to examine the signa
tures to the different notes and securities.
His verdict was that J. Frank Col lorn was
the guilty man.
Confronted with fll Crime.
The next move of those conducting the in
vestigation was to confront Attorney Col
lom w-ith his crime. This move was made
Tues lay. Collom was called into the office
of Mr. Davis. Here the situation was put
before the young man without any mincing
of words. Mr. Hlaisdell and several of the
bank officials were present at this meeting.
The culprit at once broke down and con
fussed his crime in detail. He wept bitterly
aud begged his hearers not to spare him. He
was almost tieside himself. "Send me to the
peuitentiary," he cried, "no mercy is due me;
I do not ask for any. I have lieen weak and
foolish. I can only say that I deserve my
fate. No one can ever know how I regret
that I have violated the co ifidcnca placed in
me tiy Mr. Blaisdell."
A Settlement Probable.
It is reported that Collom's father and
other friends will come to his assistance.
The Security twnk holds but tJ.V-'UO of the
forged paper, all of which is amply seenred.
It was discovered yesterday that Colloin had
forged the names of several other prominent
citizens for amounts ranging from fo,000 to

$5,0110; Frank Rupert, $lS.rMi; Eustis Bros.,

UUU. Collom claims that the equities is his
real estate are worth t.MMl.OOO. These have
all been transferred to Mr. Blaisdell. It is
not likely they will realize more than 25 jier
cent, of the forger s figures. Collom had in
invested in farms, acre property, and busi
ness buildings and lota. His real estate ven
tures were numerous and extensive. He had
just commenced the erection of an elegant
atone residence at the corner of Biaisdell aud
Franklin avenues, which would hare cost

Killed, Three of Them Children.
Butfalo, N. Y., Aug. 8 At 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, while tt e yacht Cedar
Ridge, owned by Mr. L. L. ('rocker, of East
Buffalo, was being got ready for a trip down
the river, and just as the engineer had
started the fire, two explosions occurred on
board in rapid succession. Tb$ yacht at
once took fire and burned to the water'i
Four Horrible Doaths.
Of those on board tbe following were killed:
Ethel and Leonard L. Crrcker, children,
burned; Howard Crocker, a boy, drowned.
John Rubeustein, a earpen er working on
the dock, was burned to deat h by bis boat
house taking fire from the beat. Tbe injured
are: Charlotte Crocker; Miss McLean, a
friend both badly burned; Engineer Peter
Coalmeyer, burned. Tbe explosion was due
to the naphtha by which the t tiler was heated.

Mr. Crocker is superinteut snt of the New

and thn three children killed belonged to
him. As soon as tbe explosions were heard
a boatman named Caleb Tol -ma got a boat
and, hurrying alongsido, picked up Miss Mo
Lean, who was badly burned. She was
taken to the Homeopathic hospital. She is
aliout 28 years of age.
Howard Crocker's Arfnl Pate.
The people who hurried to the scene were
first attracted by the Mght of Mr. Crocker's
little son, w ho stood on the yacht's deck in
a dazed condition, almost surrounded by the,
flames. He seemed unable to move, and
when a man named Charles Schweigel
reached a pike pole to him the boy did not
take hold of it, mi 1 a inomi nt later he fell
back into the fire and was burned to a crisp
in full view of the horrified spectators. Mr.
Sohweigel's face was ba.lij scorched while
he was trying to get the lit le boy to grnsp
Attention was now direccd to John Ru

Canse of the Disaster.
The yacht is what is knovn as a napytha
lauuch, the fuel being napl.tha. It was of
fifteen tons burden. It is si pposed that some
defect in the tank allowed the naphtha to leak
out, and when the enginee-struck a match
to light tbe fu.il un ler th. boiler the loose
naphtha exploded. The boat is completely de
stroyed, as is also the boat-house.
Miss McLean was visiting the Crocker
family from Detroit. Mr. Crocker himself

been very ill, and it is feared that she can
not survive this shock.

The Jndge Almost Mobbed In the
Street The Times Favors a Review of
Liverpool, Aug. & The trial of Mrs.
Maybrick ended in this city yesterday and
she was convicted of poisoning her husband
and sentenced to death by the judge. Mrs.
Maybrick is an American woman, an adulter
ess, her paramour being one Brierly, and the
charge against hr was that she had admin
istered arsenic to her husband, so that she
could live with her paramour. The evidence
was wholly circumstantial, and there was
strong testimony against tbe theory that she
was guilty. Sir Charles Russell defended
An Acquittal Expected.
Tlie jury retired Tuesday afternoon, and.
in view of the long delay in returning a ver
dict, both defense and prosecution expected
the jury would acquit. Mrs. Maybrick her
self seemed confident and chatted pleasantly
with two lalieti who had been constantly
near her during the trial. After the an
nouncement of the verdict the jury was
polled at Tin- request of Mrs. Maybrick' coun
sel, and each in in declared that be found tha
iVfen lunt guilty of murder by poison.
Mie I'rotertt Her Innocenee.
Jndse Stephen then asked Mrs. Maybrick if
she di-sired t.i make any remarks before son-t'-nce
of diath was prononni-ed. RUing to
her feet and gr.-ispiug the back of ber chair
for supuirt, ber face hite as death, Mrs.
May I. rick do hired in a firm voice that she
hud lu-en unjustly convicted; that evidence
had I fen kept b.ick, which, if submitted to
the jury, nould have resulted in- a different
verdict. Appearances were against her, hot
she could have proved her innoceiise if val
uable testimony had not been exclude.!
through the technicalities of the law. In
conclusion she declared without a tremor in
ber voice: '-I am not guilty of murder. You
are alsxit to pronounce sentence of death
upon an innocent woman.
The badge's Iread Sentence.
During Mrs. May brick's speech no other
sound was beard in the court-room. Every
eye was fixed upon the beautiful woman who
was asseverating her innocence, and when she
paused for breath the silence was painfuL
As sbe sank into her seat exhausted by the
effort required to maintain her marvelous
conip.wiire while addressing tbe court. Judge
Sstcplien qnn-kly arose and began to pro
nounce the law's dreadful penalty. The
prisoner, be said, bad bad a foir trial, such
as the law of England accords to every ac
cused person. No testimony offered by the
defense could have changed the result if ad
mitted in evidence. The confessions of the
prisoner, taken in connection with the un
contradicted testimony of reliable witnesses
who could have no interest in convicting un
justly, left no doubt of ber guilt. Nothing
remained, therefore, but to pronounce sen
tence of death.
Sirs. Maybrirk'a Antecedents.
Mrs. Maybrick is tbe daughter of the late
Mr. Chandler, a wealthy man of Mobile,
Ala. Her mother was Miss Carrie Hol
brook, daughter of a rich New York mer
chant, who married in New York William
G. Chandler, of Mobile, a memlier of tbe
commission firm of St John & Powers.
Chandler was the son of Daniel Chandler, a
lawyer of prominence, and nephew of the
late John A. Campbell, ex-chief justic of
the Un'ted States. Daniel Chandler was
graduated at the Yale college
In w school in 1S49. Boon alter
William Chandler's death, in lSb'2, Mrs.
Chandler and her bttle son and daughter
moved to Macon, Ga., and thence to Europe
where Horence received an education in
Germany. Mrs. Chandler was a brilliant
society woman, stylish, though not pretty,
After her husband s death Mrs. Chandler
married Frank du Barry, and after his
death. Baron von Roque. Florence Chandler
met James Maybrick in Germany. He was
a cotton buyer of Ijveriiool, Norfolk and
Galveston. Tbey were married a number
of veins ago, and removed to Liverpool.
Lost spring Maylirick died suddenly.
The Verdict Very Unpopular.
The announcement of the verdict caused
great excitemeut among all classes of people
here, who have been wntchiug the trial with
intense interest After the verdict became
known thousands of people assembled around
the entrance to the court-room and waited
for the departure of the judge. As soon as

howls of rage,, and the hooting of the crowd
was kept up for a long time. There were in
cessant cries of "shame," ami an attack upon
tlie judge's carriage was only prevented by
the Bctive interference of the police. Tbe
feeling in Liverpool against the verdict is
