Another Official Vtterance Regarding
V. S. Manlials at the Polls Brewer's
Washington-, Nov. 4. The conflicting
tatemunts circultl as to the conclusions
alleged to have been arrived at by the
Vuited States supreme court in the Chi
cago lake front cases have given rise to
rumor of stock jobbing manipulations
which are difficult to clear away. One re
markable feature of the CAse is that two
tories one sent to New York asserting
that the court had decided in favor of the
Illinois Central, and one sent to Chicago
to the equally positive effect that the court
bad decided in favor of the city of Chicago
and the state of Illinois and against the
Illinois Central railway seem each to be
onched for by unimpeachable "confiden
tial" cources of information, and so far as
each statement can be traced to a fountain
liead, both originated in one and the same
A Probable Ball and Bear Fake.
This adds weight to the suggestion that
possibly neither announcement is true and
that both may have been, per forward and
taken advantage of to bull or bear the
jnarket on Illinois Central shares in New
York and Chicago. The circumstantial
details entered into in both representations
as to the way the court has divided on the
question assume that Justice Blatchford
takes no part in the decision. This as
sumption is believed to be incorrect. Just
ice Blatchford was at first indisposed to
take part in the hearing because he held
stock of the Illinois Central railway, but
when his associates learned that the stock
stood in his name simply as trustee for an
estate and that he had not the remotest
personal interest or property in it, they in
sisted upon having the advantage of his
iews on the rase, and it is understood that
he has consented to join in the decision.
More Than One Way to Berlde.
This disposes of the four to three divis
ion theory as to how the court stands on
either statement as to the decision. Under
ordinary circumstances it might be as
sumed that either one or the other of the
two opposing guesses sent out as to the
court's decision in this important case
must prove correct, but in point of fact
there are three ways in which this case
may be decided: First, the court may af
firm the judgment of the United States
circuit court, rendered by Justice Harlan.
That judge held that the act of the Illinois
legislature of isr,9, which granted the lake
front lands to the railroad, had been re
pealed by the act of 1873, except so far as
that repealing act infringed upon vested
rights. To that extent he held that the
railroad company was entitled to retain
jfhe portion of the lake surface reclaimed
"by it under the provisions of the law of
1SB9. Further encroachments or exten
sions, however, were prohibited. This de
cision, it is understood, is satisfactory to
the Chicago officials.
Here Are Two Other Views.
Second, the supreme court may reverse
the judgment of the circuit court, in which
case the parties would find themselves where
they stood at the beginning of the litigation
with their rights undetermined; or, third.
K may hold the law of 1809 to be valid as
against the act of 1873, and thus confirm
the claim of the railroad company to the
right to use the lands covered by the grant.
This would give to the railroad company
the full extent of its claim.
This Is the Pith of the Matter.
That any authentic statement as to the
probable decision of the court has been
ip.ven out by any one implies an imputa
tion upon the discretion or integrity of the
court which is felt to le entirely unwar
ranted, yet from the nature of things it is
impossible to obtain any statement in de
nial of the conflicting rumors so indus
triously circulated. There is great respon
sibility resting on the members of the su
preme court in a case like this one. A
"tip" to a stock broker would be worth a
lot of money, and it is this fact that makes
the reports of a leak interesting.
UNCLE SAM AT THE POLLS.
A Matter or Interest Where ITnlted States
Marshals Are On Duty.
WASHIXGTOX, Nov. 4. The condition of
affairs in Alabama, Arkansas and New York
where the Democratic managers have taken
the position that United States marshals,
deputy marshals or supervisors have no
right in the polling booths and have so in
structed the local officials, has been stated
officially to the department of justice and
Solicitor General Aldrich, acting attorney
general, baa issued an important statement
of the law on that subject. The statement
1b long and is backed by quotations from
the statutes and opinions from Attorney
Generals Calab Gushing and Taft.
The New York Instructions.
Referring to the instructions issued by
the New York Democratic managers
Aldrich says said instructions bring their
nthors and ail attempting to carry them
Into effect under the provisions of the
United States statute, which is quoted and
with great explicitness makes interference
with United States officers at polling places
a crime punishable by fine and imprison
ment or both. The United States officers
are not at the polls, be rays, r.s partisans,
but as peace officers, and can summon as a
posse comitatus the sheriff and his depu
ties, tna ponce or any citizen or citizens,
or .the militia, to aid them in executing
State Lnw Is To Be Disregarded.
The statement also says that any state
! law which interferes with United States of
ficers in the execution of their duties is to
be disregarded, as the national law is su
preme. The law on position of United
States marshals or deputies in the polling
booths is given as it was iu these dispatches
recently, and is in effect that they are to
have full and free uccess and egress to and
from any polling booth without interfer
ence; to le within the guardrail during
the polling in any position they may choose
in order to see the voting and counting. On
the other hand "the marshals are warned
under the penalties of the law airainst any
interference with the rights of citizens, and
nt the same time (they will guard anil pro
tect such rights at whatevercost."
lSrewor s Adverse Opinion.
Th Democrats b:ise their position on an
. opinion by J notice Itrewer, which seems to
j be directly iu opposition to the views of
Aldrich. Iu this opiniou the justice is
quoted in the instructions issued by the
Democratic managers as derlariug that
"United States marshals have no more
right than any other voter to be within the
guard rail of the polling place, but 'must
stand outside nloti with other persons.
Itrewer. J., United States supreme court.
Fed. Rep., 6.1"." No refe.ene ismaile
to this opinion in Aldrich 's statement.
DOESN'T BELIEVE IN DYRENFURTH.
Weather Clerk Dunwoodle Thinks the
"Rainmakers" a Nuisance.
Washington, Nov. 4. All Washington
was up in arms yesterday against the
weather-makers who have been carrying
on their experiments with explosives at
Fort Meyer, on the Virginia shore of the
Potomac. Apparently forsaking their in
tentions as announced Wednesday not to
try and make rain in real earnest, but
simply to test their explosives in a molli
fied form, the rain-makers started in short
ly after midnight to experimentalize with
the full force of their detonating com
pounds. The first explosion shook every
building in the capital and woke up all the
children and sick people, to whom it
caused no little alarm and dangerous dis
turbance. This explosion was followed by
others at intervals all through the night.
The Major Kxpresses Ills Disgust.
A slight rain fell in the night, and there
was a misty moisture in the atmosphere
yesterday morning, but Major Dunwoodie,
who is in charge of the weather bureau,
emphatically denies that either is the result
of the rain-making bombardment. On the
contrary he condemns the experiments as
being merely elTorts to sustain the vision
ary, unscientific maundering, as he calls
them.of Professor Dyrenfurth.t hechief rain
maker, and asserts that he and all those
associated with him ought tole prosecuted
ns public nuisances, notwithstanding the
fact that they are acting under authority
of an appropriation by congress.
Hot Down His Weather Map.
Exhibiting a weather map Major Dun
woodie called attention to the fact that
Wednesday there was a vast area of rain
extending from Santa Fe, N. M., cleur
across the country all the way to Sydney,
N. S , stretching in a northeasterly direc
tion as far as Sault Ste. Marie, Canada,
and southwest to Knoxville. Tenn. Th's
great belt of rain just missed Washington
City, though it took in Baltimore. Major
Dunwoodie deliberately charges the rain
makers with seeking to take advantage of
this fat and to claim, in case the rain
should take in .Washington, that they pro
duced it. He is much delighted to find
that their calculations have miscarried. A
northwesterly wind that is prevailing is
driving the rain away from Washington.
Ruin markers Mnst Go Southwest.
Complaints from citizens poured in upon
the authorities all day, and at noon were
supplemented by an official complaint'from
the United States army officers in garrison
at Fort Meyer. This latter complaint led
General Schofield to take prompt action,
and he issued orders forbidding the further
use of the military reservation at Fort
Meyer for rainmaking experiments. The rain
makers had previously been driven out of
Arlington. They will now have to confine
their iperations to the arid regions of
western Texas and New Mexico.

Cincinnati, Nov. 4. A case of the most
horrible torture imaginable came to light
yesterday. For mouths Mary A. Kohacke,
17 years old, living with her parents at 94
Flint street, had been an invalid, suffering
from dropsical consumption. Her father
works In a furniture factory. Dr. Oelschlag
er, the family physician, pronounced the case
hopeless, but on Tuesday last Gustave DToy
er, a horse doctor and liniment peddler, put
in an appearance and declared he could
cure the girl. The parents consented to the
treatment. He brought a peck of timothy
hayseed, which he put into a tub and
steeped in boiling water.
Parboiled the Girl's Flesh.
He set a small chair in the water and,
stripping the girl's legs naked, laid them
over the water and covered them with
heavy blankets. The hot steam burned
her and she began screaming. The mother
and younger sister tried to get her away,
but the horse dix-ter stood guard and forced
the girl to endure it for half an hour.
Taking her from her torture of hot steam,
the "doctor" laid her on a bed. The skin
hung from her legs in twisted strings. He
bound the logs in linen bandages, drawing
the rolls as tight as he could. Then he
took a pint iMittle of horse liniment mid
saturated the bandages.
Simply Tortured to Dentil.
At this the girl's screams became terri
ble, but the "doctor" said that was good for
her. He ordered that she lay in bed, with
the bandages on, for three hours, at the
end of which time she would In- well. The
girl lay and moaned unt il the mot her could
stand it no longer and removed the band
ages after they had leen on but an hour.
The strong liniment had comnk-ted what
the hot steam so well tiegan and the le.'. !
resembled great chunks of half boiled
meat. At 1 o'clock yesterday morning she
died. The father iter la res that he will kill
Hoyer, for whom warrants wiil tie issued
charging him with manslaughter.
NED CHRISTIE, THE BANDIT.
lie anil His Gang Stand Off a Posse of
Fnlted States Marshals.
Taiileqi'AH, I. T., Nov. 4. Another des
perate battle has occurred lietween a posse
of deputy United States marshals and the
notorious Ned Christie, who a few days
ago escaped from their clutches. Learning
that Christie and his gang had returned
to their cabin fort in the Caney mountains
United States Marshal Yoes got together a
force of fifty determined deputies and sei.t
them to renew the attack. They were led
by Deputy Marshal White, reputed one of
the bravest men in this country.
One IMrsperiMlo Mortally Hurt.
It was learned here yesterday that the
party reached the fort and made an attack
Wednesday night. Arch Wolf, one of the
outlaws, Wius killed and several of the mar
shals are reported wounded, but it was im
possible to get accurate particulars last
night. When the marshals surrounded the
bouse they waited for Christie to show him
self, but he did not appear. Arch Wolf
came out of the house at daylight, and Was
ordered to surrender. He refused, arid
started to run back into the house, w hen
he was fired upon, and fell mortally wound
ed, but managed to crawl hack in.
Several Officers Wounded.
Immediately the gang opened up fire on
the marshals and a numlier of them were
wounded. A perfect fusillade of firing hits
was kept up between the opposing parties
all yesterday and it is feared that many were
killed. A wagon load of arms, ammuni
tion and provisions has tieen sent out fxom
here, and the marshals will settle down to
a regular siege. Their orders are to net
the gang dead or nlive.
Horrible History of a Convict. ,
Columbus, O., Nov. 4. James Brown,
an insane federal prisoner, who has been
confined in the penitentiary here for several
years, was last night taken to Washington,
where he will be placed in the national asy
lum. Brown was a Portuguese sailor twen
ty yenrs ago, the name he now goes by lie
ing given him by his Knglish shipmates.
He killed two sailors at sea, sucked their
blond, 'and hid the bodies away in the hold.
His motive was only an insane craving for
blood. He wns first put in the Massachu
setts state prison, and there he killed a
keeper. Recently he tried to kill a guard
here by stabbing him with a pitchfork.

Sequel to a Marriage That Was Not a
Louisville, Nov. 4. Albert Wing killed
his wife, Miriam Wing, in a brothel in this
city Tuesday night, and escaped through a
window. The woman s throat was cut and
she received a knife wound in the heart.
Both were of prominent Kentucky families,
but the girt went astray when young, and
Wing served a term in the Missouri peni
tentiary for killing a man. He subsequently
married the woman in a house of ill fame,
but they bad not lived together for several
Their Nuptial Agreement.
The couple made a characteristic nuptial
agreement. It seems that on the wedding
night husband and wife agreed that should
either be unfaithful to their (nuptial
vows the erring one should be killed by

agreement that Wing killed his wife when
he found she had forsaken him to enter
upon a life of shame. Wing has since dis
