Chief ol Pol let Hawkins went to Doter
yesterday after a réquisition for Edward
Rodgers, who waa arrested In Philadelphia
some days ago on suspicion of being a party
to the robbery of Joel Woodward, the
farmer living near «Newark, lu a From
street cigar store on October 24. Joseph
Lloyd anas Boyd, who was also arrested,
will not be brought to Wilmington right
away as he fa wanted lu Philadelphia for
robbing Poole, the chan from Michigan, sad
yesterday he and his accomplice la that
affair, were held for court.
Boyd, however, Is doubtless the man who
assisted Rodgers to rob old man Wood want,
and what tends to establish the susplchui is
that he had in his pocket when arretted a
copy of Tnx Gazkttb of October 25, giving
an account of the three-card monte game iu
the cigar store.
A Philadelphia
paper of to-day thus
speaks rd the hearing of tbo robbers who
fleeced the Michiian man : "Joseph Lloyd,
alias Boyd; William Miller, alias Baker,
-alia» "English Bill," aud Edward Bodgerr,
the confidence operators, were yesterday
givt-u u further hearing ut the Central
station. Matthew Poole, of Hillsdale,
Michigan, who was swindled out of 912T In
gold sovereigns In this c*ty on Friday last,
recognized Lloyd and Miller as the men who
robbed him. Louis Bolt, of 255 North
Ninth street, testified that Miller came into
his place on Friday evening and there met
Lloyd,and both had adrink,Miller tendering
In payment a sovereign, ot which he had
several. George Steele, bartender at No.
809 Vine street, stated that Miller offered a
gold coin for liquor nt that place. Detec
tive Peter Miller stated that the prisoner
Miller admitted having stolen twenty
sovereigns from Poole aud offered to return
ten of the pieces. Special Officer Dunbar
of the Pennsylvania railroad testified to
having seen all three defendants around the
Broad street station. On November 2 Miller
swindled .lohn W. Sawyer of Wells county,
Indiana, out of 925 ;* Novi tuber 7 be at
tempted to gain the confidence of A. Austin
of Lancaster, Pa.; November 14 he en
deavored to fleece A. J. Allen of Mont
gomery, Ohio ; he also made an effort to
Î :ain the confidence o! a Baltimorean aud a
Jerman,Rodgers taking a hand in the latter
case. When asked if he had anything to
say, Lloyd remarked, "I am iunocent." He
admitted that he had been out of prison but
two weeks. Lioyd and Miller were held in
91,500 ball each, and Kodgers was com
mitted to await a requisition from Wllmitiff
ton, Del., where be is wanted for swindling
a citizen out of 9500.

Chicago, Nov. 20.—Speculation oo the
Chicago Board of Trade is practically dead.
"Settling committee»" and a remarkably
•trlngrnt radney market have done it. The
report of the committee appointed to fix the
closing price of September wheat has made
everybody inad. The market value ot Sep
tember wheat on the #0th of that month
was 91.07. On the same day October sold
for 94 cent». The short», pf courte, de
manded that the settling price be Axed at
the latter figure. The longs wanted the
"market value" for their goods. To please
both sides the committee split the difference
at 91.02, and the result la that disgust Is
general and widespread.
There will be no more settling committees
in Chicago. A yea rot two ago, when J. D.
Lyon and otbeis were cornerlug the market
every month, there war, o great outcry from
members of the Hoard of Trade and many
outsiders agitluat the praefb-e. In deferent*
to this a rule was passed prohibiting corners,
and providing fop the adjustment of prices
by settling committee*. The rule partly

The Norriatoxxn Poisoning Case.
Norristown, Pa., Nov. 30. —The inquest
in the Garber poisoning case was continued
here to-day. Albauua Roileau was re
called, but could uot recollect having pur
chased any arsenic on May 29, 1882; if he
did, it was hy direction of bis father. Dr.
Elwood M. Corson stated that the cause of
Charles Garber's death was poisoning by
arsenic. Martha Hyde, who has been the
housekeeper for the Boileau» since January
last, was then examined. She had neither
heard John nor Albauus Boileau make threats
against tho Garber family; she knew
nothing of the cause of the sickness of ihe
Garbers ; she was not awaro that Albanus
used arsenic to kill rats ; she was positive
that Albanus was at home all the time dur
ing tho three days preceding November 2 ;
lie was never permitted to go out alouo on
account of his feeble health. It waa de
sired that Mrs. Garber should bp present, as
thtf jury wished to ask her a few questions.
G. W. Rogers, her counsel, appe
said that she was. unwell and bad
vised by her physician to remain in the
house. After a lively tilt between the lawyers
it was decided to adjourn until Thursday
afternoon, at 3 o'clock. Juror Jamison took
occasion to remark during the afternoon
that the duty of th« jury was to find out the
cau«e of Mr. Garber's death and not to say
who was tho guilty party. The District
Attorney thought that the jury should en
deavor to find out whether the poison had
been introduced into the food with evil In
tent, and by whom, or whether It had found
it# way there accidentally. Old John
Boileau says that he remember» that
Albanus put the arsenic in the rat holes on
May 29, as s«*
was impressed «u» his mind by having seen a
paper bearing the word "poison" in one of
the rat holes some tiino afterward.

Wooten» Steel-Kail Mukeyn THre*»«uing to
CIo»e Their Work« ta t rer«ot Tariff
Chicago, Nov. 20.—The story sent to the
East about the closing of the steel and iron
mills here are to a certain extent sensations J.
There is no break between the irou men an«l
the laborers. It haa been undoubtedly
affirmed that, in view of tho election to tbe
next Congress of a majority supposed to be
hostile to the existing tariff on steel rails,
the manufacturers might think it good
policy to close their mills, though there are
no reasons in the present condition and proa- *
pect« of the trade for sued» actions. The
manufacturers claim that at present prices
any reduction in the tariff rate would mako it
impossible for them to continue business pro
fitably. What they mean by"profitably" is not
so clear*—that 1«, it is not so clear as It might
be whether the}' mean enormous profits or
living profits. This i» a point to be care
fully looked into and ascertained. It is re
ported her« to-day that the threatened clos
ing of the mills may be aimed also at th«»
workmen who aro now conferring as to a
reduction of wages. It »« said the workmen
are willing to stand a reduction of 15 per
cent, on their wages, but the mill-owner«
want to mnke it 25 per cent. This subject.
I think, will be settled peaceably between
this time and the first of January. There
appears to be no reason known to the public
why work should be stopped, as it is prob
able that there will be a large demadn for
rails next year.
