PARTISANSHIP
i ATTORNEY GENERAL MILLER
RESCINDS A JUST ORDER
TO GIVE HIS PARTY UNFAIR ADVANTAGE
An Unlimited Horde of Daputy Mar
shals to Be Sit on the People.
HOW DUDLEY WORKED IT IN IHDIASS.
Ho Hired So Many Oerrupttenisla at lha
People's Expense That It Angered
and Disgusted Judge Graham.
Ono of Ibc worst scandals wlitoli
grew up abotit the Republican pirty
was the reckless way In which Deputy
United States Jlarslials wero used be
fore and on election days. The Demo
crats piotMtcd against this mis
use of thoso ofllcers, but In
vain so long as the Republicans hold
sway. It was ono of Iho ways mod by
tho G. O. P. to corrupt votora. IJach
doputy marshal was paid $3 a day for
his services. In this way active party
wotkers wcro rewarded, doubtful
voters wcro "convinced" and cor
rupt ones wcro bought. All thU
was done at tho cxpenso of tho Treas
ury of tbo United Utatcs, at tho cost of
tho people themselves. Tho pretense
was that It was necessary to sccuro fair
and honest elections.
In 1SS0. for Instance, thcabuee of tho
law was unusually bold and extensive.
Out In Indiana Colonel Dudley, then
marshal, stretched his power to ap
point deputies to tho utmost extent.
They thronged every election district
In tho State, and lined tho Ohio
Illvtr under the pretext of preventing
the Democrats from colonlltm voterj
fioni Kentucky, but In reality to run
nrgrocs across. They were less plentiful
but still numerous beyond all need,
alone: tho Ohio, SHchtgan and Illinois
boardirs. The Stato olecllon was hold
In October that year. So grot!) ptrtl
san was lit) and to such au extent did
Colonel Dudley misuse his power as
marsbHt tiiat he and J inline Urusham,
then district Judge, who wanted u
fair and honest election, iuarrelel.
The same sort of thing was done In
New York, under the load of the noto
rious John I. Davenport.
Tho Democrats protested against this
outrageous partisan perversion of
the law, but in vain. When they
camo In power Attorney-General
Garland Issued nn order limiting the
cumber of such olMclals and the period
of their services when appointed for
election limes and purposes. The or
der was generally obeyed, except In
New York city. There Davenport amis
ciouily disregarded It. The order
directed that such deputies should not
be paid for exceeding live days' services.
The claims of Davenport's Republican
eorruptlonlsts for extra time were not
allowed so long as Attorney General
Garland remained in oltlce. Ills sue
ceseor. howerer. ami a u matter of
course, paid them.
And now Attorney-General Miller
has rescinded the order, and partisan
marshals are playing the old corrupt
game for all it Is worth. Damocrtllc
Congressmen declare they will oppose
the appropriation to pay these Itepublt
can hceltrs masquerading as deputy
roarthaU.

the
Story or tho Shipwreck.
Nkw Tohk, Oct. 85. There was con
shlerabre excitement In shipping circlet
this morning over the report from Far
llockaway, that a four masted steamer,
believed to be UieObdamof the Nether
lands-American Line was ashore nn the
shoals oft Long Beach. The Obdam
carried fifty first class, twenly -five sec
ocd class, ami 000 steerage passenger",
and her reported danger occasioned
much alarm In this city. All mlsglv
Inge as to her safety were set at rest by
the news that she arrived off the Sitndy
Hook lightship at 8 20 this morning.
There was considerable Incredulity
among shipping men to day as to
whether any large vessel has gone
ashore on Hie Long Island coast, and
this unbelief was siHtnlnnl lir a ills.
patch received from the chief of the
life saving station at Fire Island this
morning that they knew of no steamer
having gone ashore oft Long Reach or
elsewhere. The wires are down between
ibis city and Long Reach and no direct
communication can be had with that
place.
The only other transatlantic liner due
yestcrdsy which had not been reported
this mori Ing is the Clrcassla of the
Anchor Line, and she Is not a four
masted steamer.

P.tnis, Oct. 30 John Dillon and
Witt. O'Brien left last night by tho 11
o'clock express for Havro on their way

In an Interview today Wm. O'tlrlen
said ho had dissuaded tho nrojectors of
the nflalr from holding the proposed
demonstration nt tho St. Lazarro Rail
way station nn tho departure of himself
and companions for tho United States.
Mr. Dillon nnd himself would be guided
by circumstances In regard to whether
they would visit Canatln. It was not
likely that they would bo arrested
there, but they were unconccned about
tho matter, because tnoir American
mission would then be concluded and
tbtlr anest would mrrely s-tve them
Irom paying their fares home. If
Judcmcnt was delivered In their ciso
during their absence from Tlpperary
that would constitute groundi fur n case

HAPPENINGS AND DOINGS IN THE
OLD WORLD.
An Atrocious Murder Mystery In r.on-
don Is nJack the Klppor" nt I1U
rtomlMi Work ARaln ?
Losuox, Oct. 25. The condition of
the body of the woman found at South
Hempstead Indicates that her murder
was the most fiendish of nny that has
occurred In Kngland since Jack the
Ripper's Horrible While Chapel series.
The "'tnractor of tho wounds clearly es
tablishes tho fact that tho woman was
stabbed by some ono behind her, after
which her prostrato body was hacked
and slashed almost Into pieces. Tho
sccno of the crime Is a lonely pt of a
section Inhabited by the lowest class of
abandoned women.
It Is supposed to be frequently pa
trolled by tho police, but tho coustables
themselves admit that they perform
that duty, with reelings of trepidation,
and tho suspicion arises that the rounds
are not as nflcn inado as they ought to
be. The belief Is general that tho mur
der Is iho work of the "Ripper," who
has changed the scene of his crimes. In
order to balllo the police. The police
are trnrklnir n man, who was seen to
enter a hansom cab near the place
where the body was fouud and drive
away at a furious pace, and are conrl
dent that they will yet run him do.vn.
The inhabitants In the vicinity of the
scene of the murder are Intensely ex
cited over the affair and remain Indoors
as much as possible.
I.CNIH.N, Oct. 2.". Medical experts
have made a careful examination of the
body of the woman who was last night
found murdered In an obscure alley of
a remote neighborhood In South llamp
stead. Tbo examination shows the
minder to havo been committed In man
ner not characteristic of "Jack the
Ripper," and also negatives the sugges
tion that the victim was of the White
Chapel type, which has thus far fur
nished the "Ripper's" prey.
The body, which Is that of a woman
apparently about 30 years of age, was
clad In material, the texture ami cut of
which Indicated tho wearer to have been
a person of soma refinement. The under
clothing was found to be marked, a fact
upon which tbe police place great streas
as furnishing a clue to the discovery of
the murderer.
When the body was found It was teen
that the woman's throat had been cut
and tbe skull fractured. Her pockets
were empty. Near tbe body the police
discovered an empty perambulator con
taining a blood stained fur rug.
The officials surmise that the peram
bulator was used to carry the body of
the victim from tbe place where the
murder was committed to the point
where it was found.
The CVar has summoned a cabinet
council to consider the Internal affair
of tbe Km pi re, and. It Is underatood,
proposes to appoint another commission

Russia, the Caar never bavin been
satisfied with the Paplen CommitttoB,
which recommended placing the Jews
on tbe same footing as other subjects.
English labor organisations are
much excited over tbe report that the
Government, in the event of any gen
eral lay up of shipping, will detail mm
from the naval service to tit out the
wail steamers. Tbe labor leaders, in
cluding Maun and Tillett. protest that
It would be unwarrantable exercUe of
authority.
A dUpattk from Zanzibar says "The

Kxw Yohk, Oct. 'Jo. A consplrtcy
to defraud life Insurance c imp-tnle It ia
beeit brought lo light by the ChronieU,
an Insurance weekly of this city.
Rililly stated, the system of fraud
nasMimewhat similar lo that of the
notoilous "graveyard" Insurance, ctr
rhd to tbe extreme In Pennsylvania a
few years ago.
A person who Is known as Jones was
the capitalist and promoter of tbe
new scheme. Hit plan wat to become
frhmlly with Intermediaries whose ac
ipialntance lay with dissolute and ua
scrupulous printers and compositor.
Alter having unfolded lilt scheme to
these men. If they artpiietced, Jones'
plan was to have his men doctored up
on lietf tea and olher nourishing food
until their sistem were In condition to
toils a medical examln.uUm for a life
insurance policy.
After having secured Insurance for
lilt subjects Jones had the policy aa
slg net! to him in contideratlon of a sum
of money. To bring the plot to a
profitable termination tbe Insured waa
expected to drink himself to death with
tbe money paid him, wbtreupon Jones
was to collect tbe Insurance.
The Vkronkl cites one case In which
a compositor named Regan wat re
habilitated and then Insured in tbe
Mutuat Life Insurance Company for
la.OOu, sod afterward In tbe Kiuluble
Life Assurance Society for $3,500. The
Re-can story la bin ked by Keean'a affi
davit. In this case a man named Cald
well waa intermediary. The Insurance
wm i-ffeeled in InMJ, at which time
Reean was out of work and bard pressed
for money. He received in nil about
73 and food aud support In a suburban
New Jersey town until be was in con
dition for a medical examination, Tbe
insurance was effected through an out-of-town
agent.
Several other cases are related some
what similar In detail In tbe Regan
ease. One to tbat of a man named Paly.
In some lenience the subjects have
died, and tbe policies have been settled
by the companies. At tbe KiulUble
Assurance Society it waa said tbat tbe
facts as suted in tbe ViuK.mU were
true. The attention of tbe officers of
the company, it waa stated, bad been
directed to tbe scheme some time ago.
