WATERBUE.Y, CONN., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1895. PRICE TWO CENTS CHARGED WITH MURDER! THE ACCUSATION AFA1NST THE BOY TRAIN WRECKERS. The Tonne Criminals Wali Proudly Into Court and Appear Delimited With the Situation The Examination Adjourned 1 Until the First Week In December. Rome, N. Y., Nov. 21. Tho four boy train wreckers Il,bard, Hildreth, Bris tol and Plato were arraigned before Re corder Charles Carmichael 'on the charge f willfully and maliciously murdering Engineer Nathan M. Hager and Rotert Bond. All four came into court with a jaunty air, as though they wero proud of their work. Not one of them appeared to realize the enormity of the offense, and they seemed to enjoy tho curiosity they excited. J. I. Sayles appeared for Hibbard and Bristol and for each of them entored pleas of not guilty and demanded an examina tion.. Neither Hildreth nor Plato were represented by counsel, but the former said ho expected his father to arrive here last evening, and that ho would act as at torney for both of them. Mr. Sayles then asked for an adjourn ment until Deo. 3, to which District At torney Klock consented. The four prison ers were then handcuffed to offioers and taken to the Rome jail. They were fol lowed by a largo crowd and walked proud ly from the courtroom. That the boys regard thd whole thing as a splendid achievement, which ranks them with dime novel heroes, is proved by their actions in jail. They sang, danced and told stories, laughed and joked and wondered what would be done to them. They were not at all troubled over their prospects. They all had opinions, and didn't hesitate to express them. One suggested tifat 23 years In prison vould be the limit, while another thought they would receive life sentences. Still another said that nothing less than a seat in the eleotrio chair would be their fate. AH agreed that if it came to tho chair that In some way they would cheat tho law. One suggested that it would be a good plan to bite a vein and bleed to death, and as this went far ahead of any dime novel heroes they had ever read of all hand9 agreed to it. The prospect of going to the court, Where the people could gaze on them, also seemed to afford them tho liveliest satis faction, and each and every one agreed that there should be no faltering. Bristol has steadily refused to make a confession, but thero appears to be no doubt that he is equally guilty with the other three. A detective was placed in a cell close .to those occupied by the boys, and he heard enough of their conversation to convince him that Bristol was as deep in the mire as, if not deeper than, any of tho others. ' Dime Novel Heroes. - ' : In their confession Hildreth, Hlbjjard and Plato agree that Hibbard and Bristol tiid tho actual work of wrecking the train. They drew tho spikes that fastened the rails and unfastened the nuts that held the fimbriates. "While this work was being dono Pko and Hlldroth stood on guard Plato on one sldo of the track and Hil drr on tho other. Tho work of loosen ing ..-.o rails, they say, was begun about 11 p. m. and was not finished until 3:43 a. m. Whllo on tho way to carry out their dia bolical design tho boy3 discussed the con sequences of their contemplated act, but nono of them weakened. Hildreth made the statement that after tho rail spikos were drawn ho and Plato wanted to retire, but that Bristol stopped them, saying: "Whoever turns back now gets shot." The first attempt, about a week ago, Hildreth said, was to wreck train No. 40, which often carries bullion, which the boys were after. Later they changed their minds and thought tho mail train would be better because it consisted of a number of sleepers, tho passengers in which were generally wealthy. llildretlvs room was searched, ana a large ana varied assortment or novels, a revolver, boxing gloves and playing cards were among the things found. Hildreth and Plato were taken by the police to the scene of tho wreck to see it the revolvers which the boys throw away could be iQund, but they could secure no trace of them. They found a'crowbarV.nd wrench, which the boys had used a week ago last Sunday in their former attempt to wreck tho train. The Madagascar Treaty. Paris, Nov. 21. M.

AMERICANS ARE SEIZED. THEY ARE HELD AS, PRISONERSON A BRITISH WARSHIP. Four American Travelers Accused of Plan nine a Military Expedition Against the Spanish Government Arrested Without Warrant and Held Without Trial. New York, Nov. 21. By letter from Nassau, Island of New Providence, in the Bahamas, corn&s a cry from four citizens of New York, who claim that they are illegally held on board a British man-of-war. They are accused of planning a military expedition to Cuba. They pro test their innocence, and they call upon their adopted government to help them in Uelr distress. The letter was written by Anthony M. Ruiz of Brooklyn to a friend in the same city. When, with his three friends, he arrived at Inagua, the commander of the British warship Partridge, he writes, sent a force to ta!ie them on board and carried them to Nassau. At the timo of writing they had been in Nassau more than two weeks, but their case had not come up for trial. 1 , - Mr. Ruiz is a member of the Citizens' leasrue of Brooklyn. Before he came to this country he was a captain in the Cu ban army, which fact leads his friends to suspeot that his departure from New York was reported by Spanish Fpies. He says: "Wearrivodafc the Bahamas on Oct. IS, and we found the English man-of-war Partridge. "The commander and the acting mag istrate of tho place boarded our steamer, giving us permission to land on tho island of Inagua. "Tho actine magistrate sent for us to ask if we would liko to take a trip to Nas sau. The reason given was that the com mander of the war vessel, wisning to go to Nassau, feared we would start a mill tary expedition from the island against tho king of Spain. We told him wo would pledge our word of honor not to leave the island until the return steamer for New York; that the American vico consul and tho agent of the Clyde steamship line would vouch for us; that tho captain of the vessel could land half a dozen marines, and wo would lodge them in our own house, and, last, that he could pick man, take him on board his vessel as hostage if he gave his word to bring him back so that the man could take the steamer back to New York with us. All this they refused, and seemed bound to take us to Nassau at any cost. Then I and my companions refused to go unless we were forced. Arrested Without Reason, "Th landed ft force of 12 marines and arrested us without cause or warrant, took us on board the war vessel and start ed to Nassau. "I could nob picturo to you the moral and physical suffering of that trip, with a rough seavand rain sweeping tho decks whoro we had to slw,' thcro not being other room for us. "Arriving at Nassau, we were arraigned beforo a magistrate, charged with start ing, helping and setting on foot a military expedition against the friendly power or tho king of Spain. We were lodged in tho barracks, and next day were hold in ?2o0 each to answer to the charge. Our trial was set for Oct. 30, and friends gave bail. "When the case was called, the wit- nesses against us wero not present, ana we were remanaeu to jnoy. o, duc louna that the witnesses had not yet arrived, and I suppose the case will bo adavneed eight days. At this rate we will never be allowed to go. The lawyers we have en gaged seem to be powerless to protect us. They cannot find an English law or prece dent by which they can compel the judge to stop this red tape business. "When I was arrested, I made a strong protest against the? outrage before tho American consul at Inagua, another be foro the acting magistrate of tho same place and another before the consul at Nassau, duly witnessed and sworn to, but so far there has been no attempt by our government to investigate our case. It Is immaterial to it whether its citizens are innocent or not, or whether they are slaughtered and outraged. The utter help lessness of our posittion and the apparent worthlessness of American citizenship need not be described to you. "The namos of the four American citi zens are Geraldo Domenech, Severiano Galvez, Branlio Pena and myself." It was denied at Cuban revolutionary headquarters here that Mr. Ruiz and his companions, who are well known in the Cuban colony, were otherwise engaged than in a pleasure trip. Friends of the arrested men will at once appeal to Wash ington to have them freed. The Cubans Win Two Victories. Key West, Nov. 21.

The New Hampshire Senator Strongly De Bounces the Gigantic Railroad Pool. Washington, Nov. 21. Speaking of the agreement signed in New York by the officers of the Joint Traffic association, Senator Chandler said: , "I have not examined the contract in detail. Apparently the railroad managers have been trying during 6ix months to modify the agreement so as to avoid ap pearing to violate the law. Yet it now stands as a trust agreement in restraint of trade and commerce, the making of the rates for every road being committed to the board representing all the roads, so that no road can lower any. of its rates to tho public without violating the agree ment. The provision for fining each road which may break tho agreement and using tho fine for tho benefit of the other roads is an illegal division of earnings. The president the attorney general and Chairman Morrison can easily defeat the ent by procuring the indictment designers under both the antitrust agreem or ail tne signers and antipcollng statutes. "The recital in the agreement that the managers do not intend to violate tho in terstate commerce law is the meanest sub terfuge ever attempted to be imposed upon an intelligent community. Tho law now explicitely forbids pooling agreements and trusts like this. Tha whole object of the railroad presidents is to make.a trust and a pooling agreemont, and it is barefaced effrontery to insert this protenso of a do- siro to observe tho law, "I cannct add anything to my emphatic utterances concerning this crime to what I have said in my letters to the president and his subordinates. If this gigantio trust can deliberately and defiantly tram ple upon national law, no trust can bo suppressed in America." SEISMIC DISTURBANCES. Earthquake Shocks Felt In Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Visit to the Country Residence of the Yen erable Senator Morrill. (.Special Correspondence.! Strafford, Vt., Nov. 19. A crisp morning recently found me on a train of the Central Vermont railway en route to Sharon. This is the nearest station to the little village of Strafford, where the "fathea of congress," Senator Justin 8. Morrill. lives. A quick drive by way of a bridga befow the town brings me to the doubia row of white cottages and stores and to the little hotel at' the end of the slngls street. A three-quarter buggy and a moth eaten colt are hitched up for me, and with brief instructions to "follow the tele phone line," I start for Strafford. My . animal was as deliberate as a justice ol the supremo oourt of the United States" until we reached the brow of a hill, the dropping off place. Thon he suddenVy struok into the most astonishing trot, throwing his legs in rll directions and carrying the buggy, bouncing, over tha stony road in a way that threatened dUas ter. Down the steep hill we flew, swing ing around corners, where tho wheell grazed the border of steep banks thai ovei hung the stony brook; through scattering flocks of hens and yellow billed ducksj past the heavy old fashioned Copcorjl stagecoach, with its grim faced driver looking out under the hood and its slDgbi passenger seeming lonely and uncomfofU able within. Presently we stopped a$ South Sharon. Bucephalus took toe lnl tiative. Ho had come to a terminus whether my destination or some otheJ concerned him very little and he drew up at the door of the village inn. He had accomplished the latter half of his Journey In one-quarter the time of the first half. The inn door stood hospitably open, but! ; tho inn was empty. An inhabitant who was passing informed me that the inn people had "gone away somewhere" and directed mo to the road which led to Mr. Morrill's house, two miles farther on. The road across the hill from Sharon to South Strafford skirts for a time the rocky bed of a tiny stream which pours its miniature cascades over big bowlders. Trees shade the drive through part of the journey, and in places where they no lon ger overhang the road they arch above the little stream and magnify the plash and tinkle of its waters. Now and then tho little river broadens where a dam shuts, off its course, and you find a sawmill just beyond. There is not enough water for the flour mill, and ita busy rattle responds to the puffing of a steam engine Above and beyond all are the hills, slope after slope, and behind you the long stretoh of abrupt road. They do have bicycles la Vermont. I saw one, but I think that the owners push them up the hills and carry them down the farther slope, for the road way is much too rough for coasting. The road between the upper and lower parts of Strafford village has its ups and downs, too, and the "river," as the natives call tho tiny stream, flows beside it, but not so picturesquely. At the end of an hour and a half from the time I loft Sharon I camo to the upper village of Strafford and drove past a brown houst almost lost in the trees. The house it is almost a pink, but they call it brown in Strafford was Senator Morrill's. Here ho lias lived for nearly 45 years. When ho sold his store in lower Strafford and retired from active business, he bought; the piece of ground on which this houso stands, and himself planned and superintended-the construction of the building. It is odd chiefly in its Gothio windows and sharply pointed roof. Within it is a typical conn- try home roomy and comfortable. When Mr. Morrill built it, it was customary to sleep on the ground floor, and the senator's own room is on the first floor of his dwell ing. A one story wing added to the orig inal building contains the senator's "den." His library fills the book shelves that line the walls. At one end is an open fireplace, where a cheerful wood fire burns every morning, fcr Vermont nights are cold. The "den" is lighted from above through panes of colored glass and from windows at the end and sides. Here Senator Mor rill spends the greater part of his timo. Ho is a constant reader, and the greatest mis fortune which ha come to him of late years is a trouble with . his right eye, which interferes with his reading by arti ficial light. Ho keeps abreast of the times in all important matters, is a diligent) stu dent of newspapers and magazines and has lost none of the mntal vigor which made him a leader in tariff discussions 40 years ago. He bears his S3 years remark ably well, and he will soon return to Washington refreshed and invlgqrated by his life in the ccuntry. A. W. B. Away With the Toothpick, Awhile ago I sought to condemn the public use of the napkin as a bib in hotel dining rooms and restaurants. Now I'm going to cry out against serving little quill toothploks In a wine or egg glass after coffee or dessert. It is an abominable cus tom, of which not a few first class hotel3 have long been guilty. No lady or gentle man ever takes one. The mere suggestion of such things -Ls repulsive to leaned peo ple. - As well might toothbrushes bo served. The very thought of suoh things inoident to gastronomy is repellant to the cultured person, and although some men and women do take and use them it is all wrong. Why should hotels furnish them? Why tempt . people to bo vulgar? Dear knows, we have enough without expecting hotels to make recruits I And such ele gantly dressed ones tp flciel Hall. i - v. " " V
