London, Dec. 5. — Redmond, Sexton.
He.-ily, Leamy and the two whips, Tower
and Deasy, bPinp.with'the exception of Par
nell, all the committee appointed at yester
day's meeting to confer with Gladstone,
drove to his residence yesterday afternoon.
All tlie members of the committee, except
tbe whips, entered tho house. The confer

Ten minutes before the arrival of the Irish
delegation Morley, Sir William Vernon
Harcourt, Ear! Spencer and Earl Granville,
who bad been conferi ing with Gladstone,
took their departure.
The conference with tlie Irish committee
lostid an hour, aud r.ion its conclusion the
delegates returned to the room in the House
of Commons in which the proceedings of
the Nationalists are held.
Assurances were given by Gladstone to
the delegates that will fully satisfy the ma
jority of the Nationalists that he will make
a genuine attempt to deal with the constab
ulary and tlie land questions to the satisfac
tion of the lri<h people.
Gladstone declined to accept Parnell's
suggestion that lie summon Morley and Sir
William Yemen Harceurt to receive the
— jekit dclegatim of the two sections of the
Irish party. He insisted that if he received
them tiie arrangements should be at his own
Tiie colleagues of *be Liberal leader were
not present at tlie meeting. Their attend

THE SITUATION DISCUSSED.
Gladstone at the meeting in no way
pledged himself, nor did he use language
importing that he was able himself to de
fine the course that the Liberal party would
adopt in the position in which it was placed.
Gladstone gave the Irish delegates a cor
dial reception. He discussed the whole
position of the Liberals, the present political
situation acd the probable effects of Par
liell's retention of the Irish leadership ou
the Liberal party.
Heal; and dextrin, the anti-Paraell mem
bers of the delegation, are satisfied with the
result of the interview. The Liberal lead
er gave no dehnite promise regarding the
points submitted, Lut said sufficient, in their
opinion, to justify the majority of the Irish
parly in considering his assuiances satis
Morley was present at the conference, and
when it was over he remained in consulta
tion wit h Gladstone. Subsequently he told
tlie reporters that Gladstone did not intend
to publish anything regarding the meeting.
The delegates were also reluctant to give the
particulars of the interview, which they re
garded as strictly confidential.
THE NATIONALIST MEETING.
When, pursuant .to adjournment, the
meeting of the Nationalist party to con
sider vie question uf Parneli's leadership,
reassenihl. v at coon, there was a lull rep
resentation of the party present.
It was announced that the committee ap
pointed to wait <<n Gladstone had not yet re
turned from their mi-sion, and an adjourn
ment was taken until 5 o'clock, pending
their ai rival. .
When the numbers reassembled a resolu
tion was adopted empowering tlie foui dele
gates lo negotiate with Gladstone in connec
tion with the question relative to the con
stabulary and lh<- agiarian difficulty. It is
understood Gladstone suggested this course
with the view of placing the negotiations,
which may follow the confeience which
took place tv-day between himself and the
Irish delegates, en an authorized footing.
Before appointing tiie committee of four
the meeting lescintfed Clancy's amendment,
which was approved yesterday. It is sur
mised this action was taken at the request
of Gladstone in order to permit a freer basis
for negotiations. Tlie meeting then ad
journed until to-morrow, the evening session
SUGGESTIONS ACTED UPON.
It is learned that Gladstone, at the con
ference with the Irish delegates to-day,
suggested a modification of the Clancy leso
lutii.ii. He desired tbat no reference be
made directly or indirectly to the question of
iarnell's leadership, lie informed the
deputation of the decUiou of Harcourt and
Morley not to lake part in the conference,
aud suggested that their names be omitted.
■»■ la conclusion, he 6aid if the Irish party
agreed to tiese suggestions, he was willing
to enter further into the subject.
Tl.e delegates explained Gladstone'^ pro
posals to the meeting on their return, and
»n amicable discussion followed, resulting
in the rescinding ol Clancy's resolution. A
resolutii n was then adopted authorizing
Leamy, Redmond, llealy and Sexton to re
quest a conference with Gladstone for the
purpose of representing the views of the
Irish party, and requesting that an intima
tion be triven them regarding the intentions
of Gladstone and his colleagues with regard
to the details of toe land and police ques
tions in the event of home rule being adopted.
Tlie uiectint: then adjourned, and the dep

colleagues, and the I'arneliite members de

THE AMERICAN ENVOY.
Chicago, Dec. o— Thomas I\ O'Connor
authorized the Associated Press to make
for him and his colleagues the following
fctateineut iv answer to the statement pub
lished In this country and telegraphed to
England to the effect that at a conference
yesterday the Irish envoys decided to
abandon the American toiir: "It is not
,__.M-ue. No such decision has been arrived at.
It b true we postponed holding a number of
meetings which have been arranged for.
Toil is done chiefly because to have held
them would have necessitated the separation
of the party, which is deemed inadvisable
under existing conditions. Furthermore,
we felt that if we held them we wTfuld be
obliged to speak of matters concerning
which we deemed it advisable to remain
silent for the present Our altitude is
simply one of expectancy, and will so con
tinue until a definite decision is reached on
the other side."

O'Brien has received a cablegram from
Hooper, proprietor of the Cork Herald,
stating that Mnnstcr is suind aud there
need not be the least fear for the country at
large, also asking fur further expression by
the Irish envoys in America ior the people's
guidance. In response, nfler a consul

a cablegram, saying that all tho

Considerable significance is attached to

New Yokk. Dec. s.— The Catholic News
has received the followiug from its
Dublin correspondent, Thomas Sherlock:
"On authority, which I have good rea

satement that Pornell has assured at least
two members of the Irish Parliamentary
party that tho charge, made against him by

convinced that Parnell is only biding his

moment when his vindication will have
more tffeet for Inland."
AXOTHKK DAY GAINED.
NkwYobK, Dec. s.— The Herald's Lon
don special says: l'arnell has gained an
other day. That in itself is a great nil
vantage. It would be almost miraculous if
the long and desperate light for his removal
could not now be thrown over into next
week, and as tho House will probably ad
journ on Tuesday or Wednesday tlie main
battle can then be transferred to Ireland. I
gathered from members of the party that
they have not much confidence in arriving
at a settlement by the road they are now
pursuing. A friend of l'arnell assured me
tbat his side was perfectly .satisfied with the
state of affairs. 'I wo members of the oppo
sition scon after expressed themselves to me
as not very hopeful or confident.

An Unfounded Rumor of tbe Probable
Appointment of a Receiver.
New Toisk, Dec. s— lt is rumored in Wall
street that the Union Pacific has a floating
debt of about $12,000,000, and a receivership
is pro-able. Jay Gould was interviewed
and said : " The talk of a receiver is ridicu
lous. As to the floating debt, I huve not had
time to look into it."
Sage declined to be interviewed.
Vice-President Lane referred the ques
tioner to Gould.
George Gould said: "This is the first I
have lie.ird of it."
Alex E. Orr declined an interview.
One of Gould's associates said: "I un
derstand the floating debt has been as high
as $20,000,<;00 recently, and there would have
been a receiver this month if there hiid not
been a change In the management."
New Yobk, Dec. s.— Dow-Jones' Boston
special says : The total amount of business
involved in the transcontinental trade is
about S2.">.fKJO,OOO, of which about half refers
to California and half to the Northwest Pa
cific Coast. Tlie gross amount of business
collected by E;isteru agents has not equaled
the salaries and nfllce expenses, and so fa r
as the Union Pacific is concerned, it was
proposed before Gould took control to abol
ish them altogether, except so far as the
Chicago and Northwestern might choose to
maintain tbem. Under Gould's plan these
competitive transcontinental agencies are to
be mergpd, or abolished altogether. We un

RAPIDLY GAINING GBOOTTD.
The third party movement is gaining
ground rapidly. The presence here of so
matij? representatives of the national labor
and industrial organizations strengthens the
opinion that the entire "relonn " element I
of the country wH join the new movement.
Western and non-Western delegates are said
to be practically united in indorsing the
Bice-Davis call, and it is predicted they will
demand of Southern Democrats in the alli
ance that they join in the movement. This
is in payment of the debt incurred by the
latter to the Western alliance men who sat
by and raised no protest against the passage
of tho anti-election bill resolution. It is not
believed, however, that the Southern mem
bers will renounce one particle of their
allegiance to the Democratic party. This
third party project is the uppermost topic of
discussion In the hotels and everywhere in
the city outside of the Alliance Hail.
An amendment was adopted that every
alliance lecturer. State and national, and ail
newspaper Organs of the alliance shall sup
port the platform or suffer suspension from
the order; that nn candidate for any na
tion:!] political otlice shall be supported by
tnc alliance unless lit; indorses the platform,
and any sub-aiiiance not complying with
these restrictions may be suspended at the
pleasure of the President The St. Louis
platform as thu9 amended wan adopted
unanimously upon the call of the roll by
Colonel Livingstone of Georgia, from tlin
Committee on Organization, made a report
In furnish thn basis for an ultimate union
between the National Farmers' Alliance,
the Industrial Union and Farmers' Mutual
Benefit Association. Under this plan tho
benetit association will stiil maintain its
separate organization, but will be entitled
to a representation in the National Alli
ance council and the Executive Committee
of each organization, which will meet here
after and arrange the details of tho union.
The report was adopted.
Dr. Macnue, Chairman "of the National
Executive Committee, submitted his annual
report It referred at length to the Sub-
Treasury Bill, drawn and presented to Con
gress. The committee's mission in this
respect is virtually ended, because the alli
ance had elected several Congressmen who
would look after pushing the bill through
the national Legislature. In a short time,
he said. Congress will pass the bill, if not
willingly, then by compromise. The report
recommended the reduction of the salary of
all national alliance officers and the removal
from Washington of the President's office,
inasmuch as the retention of it there entails
an expense not commeniuirato with its use
fulness. At the conclusion of the report
Dr. Macune addressed the .convention upon
the policy of the silliauce, especially with
reference to its position upon leading public
measures aud its attitude toward Democrats
aud Republicans in future political contests.
OBJKCTS OF TIIK CONFKUENCE.
After adjournment he gavu the Associ
ated l'ress the following synopsis of his ut
terances upon the third-party question:
He told the delegates that the people in the
Southern States were not prepared to em
bark in the third-party movement; that in
this emergency there was a great necessity
for conservatism and caution. "I reconv
mended as a compromise that would carry
out the end nought to be achieved by the
West and North, if it meant tho approba
tion of the South, that n convention bo
called for February, 1892, to be composed of
delegates from all tho associations of pro
ducers, and that the next annual session of
the Supreme Council elect delegates to rep
resent thid order in that convention. This
would not commit the people, but it pro
vided a means whereby they could eKprcss
themselves on the question through their
county and State organizations d'.;ring the
coming year. When the convention meets
the delegates would come there with author
ity and- instructions from their people. If
the people express themselves in favor of in
dependent party action it will prevail. If
not, the cause will still be tieneliied by the
conference, and there will be a better un
derstanding of the objects that the labor or
ganizations are seeking to achieve." Ma
cune thinks this will satisfy both sides,
orrosmos to macune's policy.
In conversation with an Associated Press
representative. Colonel Liviugstoneof Geor
gia said that if the policy outlined by Ma
cune was adopted, it cannot fail to have a
marked effect. It would commit the alliance
of the South almost solidly against tlie third
party. "Before February, 18!>2," said lie,
' we shall have a chance to see which one
of the two leading political parties will
show a willingness 10 accede to our demands.
If neither listens to us, then it will bo tinie
for us to act independently. I see no possi
ble chance for the Republican party to
■ecnre the alliance vote of the South while
it stands on the present protective tariff
platform. It will have to wholly forfeit its
present identity as a political party in order
to chsioge that, and I do not see any possible
chance of this coming about."
" Do you think," said the reporter, " the
Democratic party of the North would join
the Southern Democrats on an ulliauce
" I do; and I made the prediction that the
Democratic National Convention of 1862 will
adopt the alliance St. Louis platform in

individually, but if it wms the "general senti

labor organizations to stand and vote lo

the fiiht. The whole line of Powderly'a
talk was in encouraeemeut of the third
party movement, if it became necessary.
In conclusion he said: "Let me say to
you, our greeting is most cordial and
heartfelt VS'e feel that we are a part
of your organization. Let us all agree upon

Epeclal to Tiik Mohn-i.vo Call.
WASHINGTON, Dec. s.— The President to
day transmitted to the House the corre
spondence crowing out of the killing of Gen
eral linrrmidin by Guatemalan officers on
board the Pacific Mail steamer Acapnlco in
the port of San Jose. Secretary Blalne, in
his letter laying the correspondence before
the President, says it will be observed that
the last report of Minister Mizner contains
matt«r essential to a full and accurate un
derstanding of the case, ami was dated Sip
tember 2:!<1 and not received at the depart
ment until October 9ih, several days after
the adjournment of Congress. The corre
spondence consists of ten enclosures. The
first is a telegram from Minister Mizner to
Blame, dated Aucust 28th.
511 ZHEB'B INSTKUCTIONS.
in Mizner's fir^t letter to Secretary BUlne,
dated Angust 2Bih, with regard to the kill
ing of BarrunOia, he quotes a communica
tion to Captain Pitts, dated 27th, stating
that Guatemala, like any oilier nation, has
the ngu t to in rest ft person on a neutral ship
in its own waters [v time of war for any
; cause deemetl an uffense under international
| law. In ;i later telegram to Captain Pitts
Mizner says: "If your ship is within one
league oi tho territory of Guatemala mid
you hove on board Bairundia it becomes
your duty uuder the law ol nations to <le-
I liver him to the authorities of Guatemala
upen their demand, allegations having been

j Guarantees have been mmle to me by this
< Government that his life shall not be iii dau

! him other than for the causes charged."
COMMAXDEU KEITKK'S REQUEST.
Barrimdia's personal safety, Mizner says,
was at liis request promised the night be
fore by the President. Subsequently he re
ceived a telegram lrom Commander Keiter
of th« nitvy, acknowledging Guatemala's
right over tne steamer and requesting tlie
Minister to obtnin permission from tlm Gov
ernment to return Banuudia to Mexico In
the Thetis. Tlie Minister of Foreign Kela
tions positively declined to accede ta this
I request. All the Clrcuiustiinces and Bar
ruuuia's well-knowh hostility to the repub
lic ana his attempted Invasion from Mexico,
Mizner says, decided his couise, and he »q
--cordiugly. in response to a request fur writ
ten and not telegraphic orders, sent Captain
Pitts a letter advising the captain to submit
to the arrest of liis passenger. Tlie follow
, ing day Commander Rriter telegraphed
an account of iiarrunilia's death wniie re
TUKKATKNEI) TO SINK TIIE SHIP.
Under date of September l!od, in a lntter
to Blame, Mizner Jii-tifies his course, and
I s«ys that on tlie lsih he called on thy Min
ister of Foreign Kehitkus for an explan
| aiion of the affair. In the interview the
1 Minister st.tteil with emphasis thit his Gnv
ernmeut h;.d yiven positive orders to tako
Barrmidia from tlio Acui'ulco, even to sink
ing the ship, notwithstanding that it might
involve a conflict wilh our war vessels.
"Tliis." he said, "would have teen iv the
exercise of the undoubted right of his Gov
ernment over Its own waters, in which he
was confident the laws of nations would
have sustained him." Mizner Bays he had
never beard of these orders before. He then
gives the decision of Secretary Bayard iv
the Gomez (Mexicim) case in support ol his
action, and concludes: "1 confidently mid
that nothing will tend so much to the esuli
lisiiiueut of permanent peace iv these re
publics as tbe plain declaration that our
fleet of steamers cannot be used in local
waters as tlie asylum for revolutionists."
The correspondence closes with a letter
from Blame to Mizner, dated November
| 18th, in which he reviews tbe cr.se at leiigth
and says: "The more the question is ex
amined in the iiclit of Important facts,
tardily disclosed, tlie deeper becomes the
regret that you so fur exceeded your legiti
mate authority as to sign a paper which, in
i tho hnnds of officers of Guatemala, became
| their warrantforthe capture of B.imimiia."
I As to the iiiseuf Gomez, which Mizner offers
| as an excuse for his conduct, Blame fails to
find in it any support for Mizuci's action.
"I am aware." says Bl.iine. "that It may
be said that ufU-r ail you merely advised the
captain uf liis duly, but the captain did not
simply seek advice, fn his telegram from
Champerico hesiijsth.it on his arrival atSan
Jose lie will place himself under orders of
the American Minister. He again tele
graphed to you later from Chainuenco that
j he was awaiting your instructions and at
I San Jose he expected your written orders.
In his last telegram to yon, di.- patched lrom

quires: 'Shall I deliver General Barrundia

"There is not here the slightest sugges

wise than on your order and your responsi
bility. It was under these circumstances
that you wiote the letter which became, in
the hands ol Guatemalan ollicers, n pretext
for ihu attempted seizure of B.irrundiu."
The Secretary siiys that through Mizner's
action "the naval lores ol tlie United States
in those waters thus became au acquiescent
spectator of events, although a merchant
vessel ot the United States was theu lying
under the muzzle of guns maimed by men,
who, as you stale, had every reason to be
lieve, were prepared to resort to any act of
violence, even as Signer Auguino has since
declared to you, to sinking the ship, not^
withstanding it might involve a conflict
with our two war vessels then and there
A SIGNIFICANT THKEAT.
"I am not disposed," continues Blame,
"to pay uudue regard to these post facto
threats, which are now reuorted to the de
partment. 1 prefer to think that by his
extravagant language Senor Anguiuo has
done an injustice to his own seiueof human

freight of human lives in the execution of a

nothing but unlawful and invalid excuses
havesu far been advanced, would have been

by the President to say that he earnestly
tiusts the time will never come when tho

Secretary Blame informs Mizucr that if, in
stead of accepting the lawless and turbulent
condition of affairs as the ground for his
advice and consent to Bm surrender of Bar
ruuiiia, lie had made it the basis of a sug
gestion to Commander Keiter to offer him
hospitality on board the Kauger, within or
without the waters of Guatemala, and with
or without the consent of her Government,
liis action would have had the sanction of
Immune and rccoxnizedlprcceduuts.

Blame closes his letter as follows: "On
more than one occasion this Government
hns permitted its legations and ships of war
to offer hospitality to political refugees.
This was done from motives of humanity.
Its views would not have been less pro
nounced if, iv addition to the Immune aspect

with the duty of preventing the dicks of its

that it is disavowed. The President is

ON THE RAMPAGE.
Congressman Big?s Furnishes Amusement for
the Kemb rs of the House.
Washington, Dee. s.— This was a lively
day in the House and two of the C'alifor
nians played an important part in the pro
ceeding?. Morrow was the leader of the Re
publican side, and his management of the
Pension Appropriation Bill was coulplimeut
ed extravaganlly by his colleagues on the
Approptiation Committee. Kven the Dem
ocratic members, Breckinridge and Sawyer,
accorded Morrow the credit due him for bis
skillful management and courteous treat
ment of the Democratic side.
After the debate had been going on for
a good while Bisgs got the floor and asked
Morrow some question concerning the pen
sion deficiency which the latter could not
hear distinctly, as Mr. Bigg-.' artirulation
was impaired somewhat by a cold from
which lie is suffering. Moirow was in a
hurry anyhow to get a vote on the Pension
Appropriation Bill, so Biggs' question was
not heeded. This enraged him and he
jumped up aud commenced a wild attack on
Morrow. Ue flourished his arms wildly and
capered about lrom his desn into the center
aisle and sometimes up i>» the Speaker's
desk, shuuting lou-lly that one of his col
leagues had actually refused to answer his
question. This had never happened before,
aud lie had been in public Hfo thirty years.
"Morrow told an untruth," said he, "when
he said there would be no deficiency. I
will bet &2000 against $500 that 1 know
what 1 nm talking about, if Morrow and
Marion Big^s were running for office in
California Bijjgs would beat him by 50,000
majority," he shouted.
Biggs was finally corraled. He had no
sooner resumed his seat than he jumped up
and asked unanimous consent to continue
his speech, 'Ihe members who had crowded
around him and applauded and cheered him
now shouted: "Yes, give him more time."
But somebody was heard to shout, "1
object," aud Chairman Bunows declared
Biggs' time bad elapsed. But Biuus jumped
up and demanded to know who had ob
jected. McClammy stood hy Biggs and
egged him on, but Biggs was finally sup
pressed and traiiquility was restored.

on this floor and declared that the Bepubtl

tiated by the fact that the Commissioner

discussion if the financial condition of tlie
country, presenting tables to show that there
will be a deficiency July 1, 18.i"2, of over

Breckiuridge ol Kentucky Raid the
question was not as to Whether the present
Commissioner had taken part in the recent
campaign or whether a former Commissioner
was guilty of the charges made against him.
The point was that the probabilities are
that Within seven years there will be 1,000,000
pensioners on the rolls who will be paid
5170,000,000 annually. The first necessity
was to meet the question, frankly by ade
quate appropriations; the second to raise a
committee to investigate the bureau thor
oughly, have the list revised and strine off
unworthy pensioners; third, to transfer the
bureau to the War Department, and take
it out of the domain of polkics. Here were
people staggering under burdens that hart so
distressed them that they were seeking new
alliances. Let Congress meet the matter
Peteis of Kansas made an exhaustive
argument to show the Appropriation Bill
was amply sufficient. The Democratic party
was always Hooded with leai> in behalf of
the soldier when it was out of power, but
wheu it was in power it was quite 1 a differ
ent thing. The Democratic party was en
deavoring to embrace the Faimers' Alliance
movemeut. lie conceded that the Republi
can party in Kansas had run against this
movement and received a black eye. But
the tune was comitrte when a cvcloue would
strike the Democratic States. The Repub
lican party would levive because "truth
crushed to earth will rise again." He
wanted the Filty-secund Congress to pass a
Sub-Treasury Bill, Free Coinage Bill aud
Service Pension Bill, and unless his Demo
cratic Irieuds would do all that they would
find the Farmers' Alliance wave would wipe
them from the face of the earth.
Biggs of California nade a brief and
huniuruus speech in the interest of an in
creased appropriation, which would prevent
a deficiency being thrown upon the Demo
cratic House. Ho created hearty laughter
when, in conclusion, he ejaculated: "Ask
the people of California who stauds fore
most among them, W. W. Morrow or Marion
Bings, and the answer will be, 'Biggs by
00,000 majority.' "
In concluding the debate. Morrow argued
that the auiuuuc carried by the bill was all,

DRESSED FOR DEATH.
An Unexpected Tisitor Calls for
A Young- Woman Prepares for Company, and
Is Found Dead on a Lounge in Her
Kocm -Grave Suspicions.
The landlord of tlio lodging-house 309
Hyde street discovered Miss Belle Scanlan,
a roomer in the house, dead on a lounge
jfsterday morning in her room. lie noti
fied the Morgue official.", who took away the
remains for au official investigation aud
The circumstances surrounding her death
■were very stiange, to say the least, if not
suspicious. Wiss Scanlan was a woman less
thflii SO years of age, of attractive appearance
and not in want. She was handsome and or
good height six! a slender figure, which gave
her a graceful appearance on the street. A
b auk-book found among her effects showed
that sl.e had over SllOon deposit in v sav
ings bank. Her room was comfortable,
quite uehtly kept, and with other things
went to show she was not in difficulties so
far as her living was concerned.
At about 5 o'clock on Thursday evening,
she was last seen alive, when another lodger
in the house on Hyde street saw her enter
her room from the. hall.
DEAD OX THE LOUNGE.
Yesterday morning the door opened at the
landlord's touch, when he went to see what
was the matter with the young woman, who
usually appeared early. The room was in
perfect order, except the globe of the gas
lamp, which lay shattered upon the floor.
It was the only indication of violence,
though it may have been broken in an effort
to light the gas. Not a sound had been
heard the night before from the room. Miss
Scanlan reclined upon the lounge in a na
tural position, but her skin had the ghastly
pallor of death and her form was cold and
rigid. Her face was calm in its expression,
showing ueyond a doubt that poison of a
griping nature had not been used. Nor was
there a phial or pacer orany evidence of any
poison receptacles in the place. Evidently
she had expired from some other agency.
The, young woman was carefully dressed
in fine ciotiies, her hair combed and
arranged with scrupulous nicety above her
white brow. She was serene in death. One
might well Imagine her reclining there for
the reception of some ghostly guests. May
be she had prepared to receive company the
night bef"re, but it was evident she had
wished to look her best for some one — a
lover perhaps, but death was the visitor.
SHE HAD BXBH JtUIXED.
In the Morgue autopsy-room she lay on a
slab until evening when Poliue Surgeon
Williams made au examination into the
cause of her death. The doctor had no
history of the young woman's case, as it
could not be obtained by the Coroner's
deputies who had removed her body from
the sofa where she had died. The landlady
knew only that Miss Scanlan had engaged
the apartment a little while ago and had
given up working in a private family, for
what reasou was none of a stranger's busi
It was found by Dr. Williams that Miss
Scanlan was well preserved ana had been a
healthy woman. Her vital organs were in
normal condition, excepting the right lung,
which was very much congested. From ap
pearance it was supposed that the deceased
had had a criminal operation performed
upon herself, or had given premature birth
accidentally to achiM. There was consid
erable to support this belief. No specific
trouble could, be found, and the congestion
of the lungs was probably due to these
causes, which in all probability brought on
death. The stomach and upper iutestines
were absolutely empty, showing that she
had not eak'u food ol any kind for several
THE DOCTOR SII.FINT.
Not a trace of wuson was discovered. The
doctor was very conservative in speaking
about the matter, and would not give a posi
tive opinion without knowing something of
Miss Scunlan's recent history.
An investigation will be made by the de
tectives, and interesting developments are
expected In the case.
Fr. in letters found in the room of Miss
Scnnlau it appears that she*has been in this
city since January of ISSB. All ol t!ie letters
were signed hy Sam Owen, an employe of
the Ongon liailway mid Navigation Com
pany, and dated at Portland. A clipping
from a newspaper showed that she sailed
from Portland on the steamer State of Cali
fornia under the name of Belle Owen. On
the reverse side of the clipping was written,
in blue pencil. "Your brother Sam."
LETTEKS FIIOM FRIENDS.
This was evidently intended for a juke,
and the name may have been used to have
secured v reduction of fare.
She hail also a letter of recommendation
from Mrs. Mary Kowau of Portland, dated
February '2.1, lb'6", «hu-h commends her as a
servant. In one of his epistles Sam advises
her to leave the Shirley iiouse at s^o Fourth
street, as he did not think it a proper place
for her to live in. He finds that she is em
ployed in some restaurant, and tells her of
the temptations that a woman iv such a
place is subjected to. Altogether the writer
is full of good advice.

BABY OXE SOLID RASH
Ugly, Painful, Blotched, Malicious.
No Rest Day or Night. Cured
by Cuticura Remedies
in Three Weeks.
Our oldest child, now six years of age, when an In
fant six months old, was attacked with a Tlrulent,
malignant skin disease. All ordinary remedies fall-
Ing, we called our family physician, who attempted
to cure It: but It spread with almost Incredible
rapidity until the lower portion of the little fellow's
person, from the middle of his back down to hi*
knees, was one solid rash, uuly, painful, blotched and
malicious. We had no rt*st at ni^ht, uo peace by day.
Finally, we were advised to try tho Cuticuka.
Kemkuiks. The effect was simply marvelous, la
three or tour weeks a complete cure was wrought,
leaving tho little fellow's person H white and healthy
as though he had never beeu attacked. In my opin
ion your valuable remedies saved his life, and to-day
he is a strong- healthy child, perfectly well, no repo>
titiou of ihe disease having ever occurred.
