Special to The Hoaxers Call.
London, Nov. 2.— Municipal elections
were held in England and Wales yesterday.
Where the results turned on politics the '
Conservatives gained fifty-nine aud the
Liberals eighty-seven seats.
The leading feature of the returns is the
fact that not a single dissident Liberal's
success is yet recorded. The Labor candi
dates won some scats from the Conserva

a bad outlook for the Government and show
what will happen In the event of an appeal

London, Nov. 2. — Jamison's brother
writes to the Times asking its assistance in
prevailing upon Stanley to pursue an hon
orable course by publishing the whole of
his case against the rear guard, instead of
waiting until everything is said from the
other side. His present cenrse. the writer
says, gives Stanley the advantage of
representing a case for dead men to answer.
Had they been living Stanley would have been
compelled to substantiate his insinuations
in a court of law, but'now there is no ap
peal except to the har of public opinion.
The writer add*: "I have had too sad an
experience of his considerations for others

New Yor.K, Nov. 2.— William O'Brien
and wife, T. D. Sullivan and wife, John
Dillon and Timothy Harrington arrived this
morning on tho steamer La Champagne. A
Beccption Committee, representing the
various Irish societies, mot them at quaran
tine and when the steamer arrived at her
dock a reception was held, after .which the
visiters went to the Hoffman Houss.
/WELCOME TO TUE CITY AND STATE.
Governor Hill was one of the first to call
upon them. He warmly welcomed them to
the city and Stale, expressed his sympathy
with their cause, and signed bis name to an
address of welcome prepared by the Irish
societies. Mayor Grant did the same. Eu
gene Kelly aud Joseph J. O'Donahue were
also among the callers.
FEELING OF THE IRISH PEOPLE.
In a talk with newspaper men O'Brien
said that out of forty by-elections held in
Great Britain since the assembling of the
present Parliament fourteen have been won
ley the Home-rule party. This was a fair
indication of the feeling of the liiTi people
on the question. He believed the Tores
would be forced to dissolve Parliament
sooner than they anticipated. The Govern
ment, he said, was not taking proper meas
ures, for it denied that a famine existed,
and new admitted that there was deep dis
tress in the country by proposing measures
MISSION OF THE VISITOLS.
O'Brien also read au address on the situa
tion of li ish affairs and the purport of the
visit of himself and fellow-travelers _ to
America. ".We are com ins to America,"
the address said, "by the desire and will)
the approval of Darnell and the Irish Par
liamentary i arty." O'Brien staled that
there was absolute unity in the ranks of the
Parliamentary party and among the people.
'Ihe old taunt of instability of purpose could
no longer bo thrown at Ireland. Speaking
of the experience of Dillon and himself,
O'Brien said they were well watched by the
police and spies. When they took a special
train at Limerick the police took anoth r
special train in order to keep them continu
ally in sight Yet they were caught nap
ping. Neither bribes nor threats induced
any one to tell the police of their departure,
and Balfour's system of espionage was
waited. "The Government cannot trust its
own servants," coutiuued O'Brien " Why,
on the day before we were arrested Dillon
wrote me informing me of what was going
to take place, although it was supposed to
be a Castle secret. aBMB
THE TORY POLICY.
"We waited in Tipperary as long as there
seemed the least chauce o] forcing a prompt
disposal of the charge. -As soon as the
tactics of the Government were quite clear
we took the leave la tumble tlieir elaborate
house of caul- about their ears and came
away to appeal to America against Balfour's
ignoble dodge for starving out the tenantry
whom he has failed to intimidate. We will,
of course, return the moment our business is
linished. If we shall have in the meantime
secured the means of preserving the Irish
ranks unbroken until the general election,
we will uot grudge Balfour whatever com
fort he can derive from keeping US in jail for
our success, The essence of the Tory pol
icy in Ireland is lan 1 purchase on the land
lords' own terms. To elfect tula the ten
ants' combination had to be stamped out.
The tenants, once smashed and disorganize d,
under terror of coercion, the Cabinet 01 land
lords and landlord tribunals could range
the rest at will. It was with a view to
crushing the the tenants' combinations that
all the prosecutions, batonings and police
outrages took place, and it \va3 to prevent
this that the Irish representatives came here.
THE TII'I'KIIAI.V ARRESTS.
"The London Times has exultantly calcu
lated," continues the address, "that Bal
four's policy has cost the Tenants' Defense
Fund £50,000 a year, and that it will cost us
£20,000 more to build a new Tipperary.
They calculate that the Irish people at home,
who last year subscribed £60,000 for the
Evicted Tenants' Fund, would not be able
to come to their rescue this year, and that
we must appeal to America. Hence the
'tipperary arrests on the eve of our depart
ure, If the tenants could be broken by the
terrorism of starvation the Government
could carry whatever land-purchase cone
they phased and go to the country with a
triumph over the success of coercion. On
the other band, if Balfour lias to face the
general election a confession that the land
birds' syndic A-, with all their power, failed
to break the spirit of a oouple of dozen of
bodies of Irish tenantry after all these; years
cd merciless repression, the coercion policy,
already disliked, will be overwhelmed at the
the" danger op famine.
" For the present the question of a national
fighting fund and a charitable fund are
wholly separate. The danger of famine
along the western portion 01 the seaboard
is unquestionably real and horrible. The
Irish party are watching the situation with
the utmost solicitude. The bill which they
have called for suspending evictions for non
payment of rent on small holdings, com
bined with a more liberal administration of
the poor laws, would go far to avert any
danger of a general famine.
"The opinion of the Dish party is thatlauy
general American fund poured into Ireland
at this time would probably have the effect
of confirming Balfour in his policy of leav
ing the relief of distress to private exertions,
and afterward boasting that the distress
was imaginary, while large sums dis
poned with Imperfect knowledge of the cir
cumstances oi the country would inevitably
find Its way into the pockets of the land
lords, whom the prospects of American alms
would encouiage to extol t rent from their
AN ADDRESS OF WELCOME.
This evening tin- Parliamentary Fund As
sociation gave a reception to the delegates
at the Hoffman House, about two hundred
invited guests being present. I Among them
were Eugene Kelly, Hon. Hubert Roosevelt,
Judges Morgan, O'lirien and Fitzgerald,
Mayor Grant. ex-Mayor Grace, Hourke Cock
iii n, General O'lliipe and President Gieason
ol the Municipal Council of the National
League. An address of welcome was read
by James A. OGonnan, expressing the deep
est sympathy of all true Irish-Americans
and all liberal Americans for the Irish cause.
It was signed by Governor Hill, Mayor
Grant and the chief officers of the Irish so
cieties. Er.ch of the delegates spoke briefly.
Dillon made a stirring appeal for aid and
pictured Hie condition of his own constitu
ency. O'lirien said he asked that his men
be not struck down in the last hour of win
ning the battle when American hearts and
purses could save them. f. D. Sullivan said
sympathy lor the cause was growing in En
eland and prejudice was passing away.
INCIDENTS OF TIIE ESCAPE.
O'Brien told the reporters the story of the
escape of Dillon and himself, and appar
ently enjoyed telling it. Dillon helped him
wtih the narrative. They walked from Dub
lin, O'lirien said, down to Dalkey, a small
port near Dublin, in company with Clancy,
a sub-Sheriff of Dublin. i They dined at the
house if Timothy Healy. Then they boarded
the yacht St. Patrick, commanded by Cap

Washington. Nov., 2.— Edward C.
O'Biien, Assistant Secretary of the Bepub
iican Congressional Committee, has received
letters from every section of the country
giving the political situation in the respective
States up to dale. Mr. O'Biien says: "The
next House will be Bepubiican by from seven -
to tan majority. We are not telling the dis
tricts in which we will make gains, but from
my reports I will state that the Republicans
will gaiu largely in the Nortii and West,
and our, gains will be due to the McKinley
Tariff Bill. Our most pronounced gains
will be in Indiana. We will greatly sur
prise the Democrats in that State.
the fight in OHIO.
"Then again we will get more in Ohio
than was intended we should have by the
gerrymander. You know at first it was
claimed Dy the Democrats that we could
only have five members out of twenty-one,
while Ohio is really a Bepubiican State.
But now the Democrats concede us, I be
lieve, ten members. That in itself is a Be
puhlicau victory. The people of Ohio, I
believe, will not sustain the unjust gerry
mander. - . :
- "We will have, a solid delegation from
Connecticut. We have three of the four
now. If we got all the Southern districts
that have Republican majorities then. the
House would be Republican by at least
twenty-five majority. In Illinois I don't
think we can make any gains, but we will
hold our own there.
IOWA AND NEW YOKK.
"The Democrats bave placed lots of money
in lowa, but 1 don't think there is any
chance for the Democrats in that State.
The Republicans are liable to have a big
surprise in New York, because of the new
ballot law. Our greatest loss, however, will
be on account of . patronage. The Repub
licans will hold their own in Minnesota.
California and Montana, although Carter
has a hard battle to light. In fact, we will
not lose in any of the Western States.
"I talk thus confidently of success, because
of reports received from Republicans on the
ground. Of course they may be prejudiced
and the reports sent me may show bias in
favor of llie party, but on the assumption
that my information is correct, I say that the
next House will lie Republican. Early in
tho campaign, just after the adjournment of
Congress, the advance In prices had a most
depressing effect on quite a number of Re
publicans, but tbey sojh rallied as they saw
through the Democratic trick. I don't think
the people will be humbugged by tbe cry of

Arrival of a Large Quantity of Nickel Ore
Washington, Nov. 2.— During the past
week thirty-four car-loads of nickel ore
from Canada have been received at the
navy-yard and ore awaiting the further dis
position of the Ordnance Department. The
ore is in the rough, just as it came from the
mines. It will have to be smelted, and will
be kept in the yard until arrange
ments for the separation of the nickel from
the baser elements are made. The nickel
will probably be used for tests now going
on, looking to more extensive use ot nickel
as an alloy for armor-plate. As the quantity
will be very large, even after it lias been

FOUGHT FIVE BEARS.
Only Ono Cartridge Between a Boy and
A story of an encounter between five bears
and a hoy. in which the latter came off vic
torious, reached this city yesterday. The
hero of the adventure is said to be Beit Mon
roe, son of Henry Monroe, of the valley. The
boy is about 19 or 20 years old, and is an en
thusiastic hunter and a dead shot. Last fall
he killed the largest bear that had ever been
killed in tbis section, and he refused 575
for tho hide. Although the latest ad
venture in which he is said to have figured
so prominently sounds considerably like a
bear story, his friends in this city are in
clined to think he would not hesitate to
tackle one bear or a dozen, if he came across
Young Monroe started out for St. Peter's
mission a few days ago on a bunting expedi
tion. He was after bear, and he found more
than he bargained for. His tourney took
him up toward the head of Milk River, and
while not expecting it lie came faco to face
with a bear which emerged from what after
ward proved to be a bears' den or lair. Ho
had no sootier killed the bear with his trusty
rifle than another one appeared. He killed
this one in the same way, and the third ap
peared. He killed this one also, and before
he hnd* time to realize that he was getting
about all the bear lie cared for in one day
bear number four appeared. This fellow he
also. killed, and there was only one cart
ridge left iv bis magazine. . Ho needed this
cartridge, too, for a fifth bear aud larger
than any of the other four came out of his
den and made for him. He tired his last
shot, and though it pronably hit bruin it did
not do the business, for he came straight at
Monroe did not have time to get another
cartridge in his gun before the infuriated
beast was on him. The animal made a slap
at him, which sent the useless gun flying out
of his grasp, and he just had time to draw
his hunting-knife and give bruin an ugly
cut in the throat. In doing this he received
a severe squeeze from the monster and a
fearful bite on the shoulder. Then he lost
consciousness. It must have been only for
a few moments; however, for when he came
to again bis horse was between him and tlie
bear. The latter was evidently hurt, for he
was making a feeble attack upon the horse,
and was bleeding profusely from the wound
in the throat. When the horse turned tail
to his adversary and began to kick tbe bear
made off to the brush, leaving a trail of
blood behind. ' ■-'-.- vjij.^j'^rj ■?••*--,
Monroe found that be was hurt in his
back and side, which had been terribly torn
In bis brief struggle. With; difficulty be
mounted his horse, which was quite unhurt,
and rode two miles to a point where men
were at. work on a railroad grade of tbe
Great Northern. • From there he was taken
to the Piegan Agency, where he now is. • A
party which went out the next day found
the four bears which had been . killed and a
trail of blood leading as lar; as a stream,

A CRACKSMAN AT 14.
May's Landing Jail line a Remarkable
A May's Landing (N. J.) dispatch to the
Philadelphia Record says: May's Landing
Jail contains a most unique prisoner. His
name is Charles Kroeker. He is 14 years
old, and is a deaf mute. As a lock-picker,
jimmy manipulator or jail-breaker, burglar
and geueral mischief-maker Charles has
few equals and certainly no superiors be
tween Barnegat Bay and the Golden Gate.
In bis brief . career he has escaped from
prisons and reform schools no less than
half a dozen times, until now be is a thorn -
In the side of every Sheriff and school
master who ever had occasion to guard him
and a terror to the communities in which
He is in jail now awaiting trial for break
ing into a bakery at Egg Harbor in the be
ginning of September. Charles and Justice
will meet the last month of this year in
May's Landing Court-house, and appear
ances indicate that the lad will have a pretty
good tusscl on hand.
Sheriff Johnson is afraid his prisoner will
escape if confined any longer in the May's
Landing jail and he secured leave from
Judce Alfred Reed to remove him to the
State Prison at Trenton. It Is expected
that in a few days lie will be taken back to
his native city and put behind the stoutest
bars and most intricate locks in New Jersey.
Charles, or "Charlie," as he himself
writ his nam**, is the son of Oscar Kroe
ker, a blacksmith of Trenton. Although 14
years old he looks no more than 12. His
build is slight, for he is but 4 feet 2 inches
in height and weighs about seventy-five
pounds. The dark hair is clipped close to
the bead, and his eyes, which are tho won
derful feature of his make-up. are blue,
bright as buttons and quicker than 3. clap of
thunder. It is seldom that a smile does not
play on his face, which is white and rather
The hands are as wan and weak-looking
as a side grrl's, but are, m fact, astonish
ingly strong. His body is muscular and as
active as a cat's, his chief delight in prison
being to leap from a high corridor across a
hallway to a window-sill, a feat which Dep
uty Higbee says no other bird of his ever
attempted to perform. He frequently
laughs in a shrill key and says "Dood
boy," which are the only vocal sounds he
ever utters. -— — ••• --."- ~ — ■ -<•■■■
Charlie Krneker began his career as a
miniature desperado when : 5 yeais of age,
and for bis first offenses, which were the
purloining of neighbors' property, be was
sent to a reform school at Trenton. While
there lie was taught to read and write, and
so marvelous!? quick was he to grasp an un
derstanding of those subjects that in a short
time he could read a newspaper intelligently
and write a first-class baud. Reform school
was an irksome place, for him, however, and
one night he opened his window, slid down
a lightning-rod and escaped.
When caught and returned, after being
allowed to go home awhile, he was passive
and docile. His thoughts were very busy,
nevertheless, and one day when be was not
in his place at school an investigation re
vealed that his room was empty, and that
to get away he had picked not only the lock
on bis own but on the outer doors. He was
gone then for good. How in the world he
had opened the locks and bolts no one seems
to know definitely. It is supposed that he
got bold of some wire and a knife, which
constitute all the jimmy implements he de
sires. -.- ■-. .*-;■■'•
Later on be drifted into New York, at
once plied his trade in entering houses, and
was confined in the Tombs*. He got out, but
to this day he will not communicate one syl
lable about that particular episode.
The Sheriff and his deputies keep a sharp
eye on the notorious little lock-picker, and
had it not been for this close attention the
jail would certainly have contained one leiis
occupant to-day. Charlie's fellow-prisoners
say that it requires au uninterrupted guard
ing by the officers to keep the young des
perado inside the building. All testify,
moreover, that he can undo any lock that is
known or ever used on doors with the
greatest ease and dispatch. it is impossible
to keep him in a common cell. His bands
are so small that he can get them through
exceedingly fine-meshed doors, and thus have
a good chance at the lock outside. No at
tempt has been made to keep nil cither in
or out of any particular cell in his present
quarters. J He occasionally gives an exhibi
tion of his skill as a lock-picker before his
fellow-prisoners. His implements of war
fare are very crude, and ho probably never
saw a set of real jimmy tools. Ho enters
houses at uight apparently for the mere
pleasure begets from baffling the purposes
of bolts and lo.ks. His thefts never amount
to large sums. -. •■*,■<>.>

met with a tragic death on Friday night near

body was dragged out, and, when washed
and cleansed of the mud and slush, it was

appears that the dead man had attempted to
drive across the bridee that connects Alviso

A GHASTLY OIiGIE.
Revelers Trop it Corpse Against a Stove-
I'ipe find Ilnnce Around It.
Cincinnati, Oct. Herman Lutterbey,
known among his boon companions as
Tubbe, died at the corner of McLean and
Harrison avenues over a saloon, late Satur
day, where he lived with an abandoned com
panion. His father is a big stockholder in
a famous brewery and a very wealthy man,
and young Herman, probably for that
reason, never established a Sunol record as
as devotee of industry. Instead of gaining
a living by the sweat of his brow, the lines
of his fate were cast in pleasant places, and
he had a reputation of being a hail fellow
well met, generous to a fault, and be has
figured in many a "big time" with the
friends he chose, and the chosen four of
his intimacy wero a lot of fellows who would
never set the world on lire, even if a suffi
cient supply of combustißles were at their
command. Young Lutterbey's life need
not be further adverted to, for when tho
disease grasped liim it found a ready vic
tim. For although a man of line physique
and apparent strength, a long stretch at the
shrine of Bacchus had weakened him, and
at 5 o'clock of a week from yesterday he
died after a short Illness. '
His untimely demise produced a variety of
sensations among the boon companions
aforesaid and, loth to part with him, they ar
ranged a wake. After the corpse had been
decently dressed for burial and lay in the
cotlin in ll.e room where death had occurred
some ten or a dozen of histoid associates
gathered around it, and giief and thirst at
onco possessed them. It was then suggested
to utilize* the dumb waiter leading from
Tubbe' apartment to the saloon below as a
medium between their sorrow and their
craving, and soon the party, tilled with re
morse and liquor, gave way to tipsy expres
sions of mirth and jollity, and a fanciful
suggestion to take just one more drink with
" Tubbe, old boy" was readily acted upon.
Straightway to the coffin went the watch
ers, and the corpse was tenderly lifted and
stood upon the feet. The stovepipe fur
nished a convenient resting ■ place, and
against it the corpse was placed, while all
hands again sought the table md its load of
But noticing that "Tubbe" entirely failed
to respond to their cheer, one of the revelers
approached him, pried open his mouth with
a corkscrew, and, filling witb sardines, at
tempted to pour the contents of a pint bot
tle of whisky down ihe dead man's
throat. Naturally the corpse refused to
swallow. The idea that "Tubbe" should
refuse liquor, aud, as one of them expressed,
"choose to reform so late in life," appeared
so ridiculous to the maudlin mourners that
it was proposed to celebrate the change by
joining hands and dancing around the body.
In order to get greater freedom of move
ment tbey divested themselves of all super
fluous clothing, and a noisy revel was begun,

About this time a string-band hove around
the corner, but a proposition of one of the
gang to invite the band upstairs for a dance
was speedily voted down, and tho ceremony
proceeded with the disadvantage of no
music to enliven the occasion. But music
was wanted, and one of the crowd began to
sing. His voice, however, grated harshly
on the ear of ids next neighbor, and a re
monstrance to stop bawling was met with a
crack on the objector's ear. A free fight
ensued, and "Tubbe" took pert to the ex
tent of falling ou the floor and being

The boys didn't have sufficient time to
get "Tubbe" back to his coffin, and silent,

breath of misery and disease, dulling tho sense
