Reporters His Trip to the Western
Metropolis and Its Consequences A
' New YofiK, May 3. Part of ths mystery
surrounding the death of Miss Rebecca
Berghold in the Southern hotel at Chi
cago has been cleared up by the confession
of William Alexander Cornell, the maa
whom Captain Berghold has indicated as
the possible betrayer of his daughter. Cor
nell is a lawyer, living at 17 East One Hun
dred and Fifteenth street; is 27 years old,
married, and has one child 5 months old.
He was seen by a reporter, and denied that
he had seen Miss Berghold in two years, or
that he had been out of the city within a
month. Later, however, after seeing the
statement of Captain Berghold he made
what he claimed was a full and truthful
statement of his relations with Miss Berg
hold. He admitted having gone to Chi
cago with her, and said that it was he who
registered at the Southern as "Mr. Alex
ander." Had Trouble with Itoth Girls.
He said that he met Miss Berghold
twelve years ago. He had been attending
the College of the City of Xew York wieh
a son of the captain and became acquaint
ed through him with the family. He be
came attached to F-liza, the youngest
daughter, and paid her so much attention
that it became reported that they were en
gaged to be married. Then he tired of
her and paid attention to Rebecca. This,
he says, caused Kliza to become hi enemy
and her sister's. Three years ago he ceased
to visit Rebecca and two years ago she
called at his office and raid she was not
living happily at home. Her sisters were
at work and they often taunted her with
being dependent upon her father. She
said she wished to learn stenography and
typewriting and asked him to lmd her a position.

He secured several places for her, but
she could not keep them long. She ofun

to commit suicide. She said she was tired
of home life. Afterward she wrote that

the same bed with her sister they had not
spoken for several months. On April 12

was stopping at the Cosmopolitan hotel
and asked him to call upon her. She had
registered, as Mrs. Alexander. She said j
she was determined to make her own liv
ing. He advised her to go home.
"Two days afterward," said Cornell, "on
April 14, she came into my office in the
Bennett building. We went out and had
lunch togetbtr. Then we had a talk. She
was in tears. 'I can't go home,' she said,
and I cannot go away alone.'
"The Woman Tempted Me."
"The end of it was that I gave in and
agreed to escort her to Chicago. I did
have a little business there, but I had not
intended to go so soon. I took her to Chi
cago and registered with her at the South
ern hotel as man and wife. For two or
three days she went around some, looking
for a boarding place, and I stayed a little
longer than I intended to. I had caught
cold and had neuralgia. Then she began
to beg me to remain with her. At first I
declined firmly and then not so firmly, and
finally I forgot my duty and stayed. We
lived together un'il Thursday, April 7,
without my having the courage to say that
I must leave her.
