SYRACUSE, N. Y., Sept. IS. Frederick
W. Tenn, son of George Penn, a wealthy
steel manufacturer of this city, was mar
ried a few months ago to one Catharine
O'Donnell, a handsome young woman, and
It was alleged that the bridegroom was
lntoxlcate-l at the time. At any rate, the
young" man disappeared soon afterwards,
and has not returned to Syracuse, and.
Mrs. Penn went to Pittsburg, where she is
staying Ith her sister. Before leaving
Mrs. Tenn began a suit against the elder
Penn for $20f0o9 for the alienation of her
husband's affections, and the detendant has
Just filed his answer. To the first count of
the complaint, which sets forth the mar
riage of the plaintiff to Frederick V.
l'enn, the defendant denies knowledge of
or Information sufficient to form a belief.
OThen he alleges that at the time of the
pretendc-d marriago his son was drunk and
unconlTious of his acts; that the plaintiff,
with other parties, who were aiding and
abetting her, took him In a carriage to a
minister and Induced the minister to per
form a marriage ceremony; that when the
4 young man became sober he immediately
7 repudiated the marriage of his own voli
tion, and that the defendant in no way in
fluenced him thereto. No one appears to
know the young man's whereabouts save
his immediate family, and they will not
tell. An action for divorce was begun on
behalf of the young man. ana a summons
was served upon the wife's attorneys, but
no further steps were taken, the time ex
piring without the complaint being served.
Then, after the wife had vainly tried to
have George Penn and others indicted for
con.-pimcy, the action for alienating her
tuiland8 affections was begun.

HAILED OVEIt THE COALS.
Charged trlth Lenvlns; Xo llerords In
the Secret Service Ilurenn Itcurd
ints the Search for the Fugitive.
WASHINGTON, Sept. Now that Mr.
Drummond, who was chief of the United
States secret service under the last administration.-
has effected the capture of
Captain Howgate he will be called upon
by the Treasury Department to make some
explanation in regard to certain features
of hli corinection with the Ilowate case.
It is understood that Mr. DrummonJ will
be called uoon to explain why it was that
he left no record in the fifrs of the bureau
about the Howgate case when he peversd
his connection with the secret s:rvic3. It
is said at the Treasury Department .that
Mr. Drummond claimed to be working: on
the Howcate case in June. 1S:3. At that
time the Cleveland administration, having
been in power "over three months, deter
mined to displace Mr. Drummond, who
was a Republican, and give his place to
Mr. Hazen. a Democrat. Mr. Drummond,
it is alleged, represented to Secretary Car
lisle that he was then engaged in efforts
to capture Captain Howgate. and that to
displace him at that Juncture would inter
fere with the apprehension of the fugitive.
Upon this assurance Secretary Carlisle de
ferred action, but after the lapse of eight
months, with still no news of Howcate,
the Secretary concluded that he would
make a change. Mr. Druramond's resigna
tion wJL'i handed in. Sou:i after taking
charge of the office Mr. Hazen had occa
sion to look uo the Howgate case, but it
U said be cou'd find no trace in the files
of the department of anything concerning
the history of the efforts of the depart
ment to capture Howgate. The first im
pulse of the Treasury Department Gracilis
wrs to call upon Mr. Drummond to give
an account of his stewardship In this mat
ter, but for certain reasons it was con
cluded not to mention the matter to him
at that time. In the early part of this
month, the secret service bure.au received
information that Howgate was in New
York, and that he wan haunting a certain
locality. The bureau went to work, upon
this hint, but had not found Captain How
gate at the time that Drummond discov
ered his game. Now that the wholejthing
has come to light it 13 understood that the
Treasury Department will call upon Mr.
Drummond to tell what he may know of
any papers or data upon the Howgate case.
A lesal demand of this kind can. be made,
for there is a statute regulating the dispo
tlon of public papers and documents by
HoiTfrnte to He Token to Wtililnrtnn.
NEW YORK. Sept. 23. Captain Howgate,
who was arrested In this city yesterday on
a charge of embezzling over $100,000 from
the government, was brought before Judge
Benedict in the Unite! States District
Court, In the federal bulldinor. on ftn appli
cation for an order for hra removal to
Washington, where his case will be tried.
Judge Ilenediet akd the prisoner If he
had any objection to being taken to that
city, "and he replied that he had not. Judge
Benedict then signed the order.
At Dudlow-street Jail it was said that
Howgate would not be taken to Washing

A Jersey City Preacher Proposes to
, fctorm the Haunts of Vice.
NEW YORK. Sept. 28. Rev. J. L. Seud
der is not going to be the only imitator of
Dr. Parkhurst. The latest clergyman to
pose as a moral crusader is the Rev. James
Parker, of the Second United Presbyterian
Church, on Hancock avenue, Jersey City.
This gentleman proposes to start a society
which is to be modeled somewhat after the
famous Parkhurst society in New York.
It i3 to be organized in a few weeks. The
Rev. Mr. Parker, in speaKing of the com
ing crusade, said: "The society will be
nonsectarlan and nonpartisan, and under
no circumstances will it enter politics. Tiie
main J object will be to see that the laws
in Hudson county, and especially those
providing for a proper observance of the
Sabbath, are observed. The authorities are
d.ily induced by powerful influences to
close their eyes to certiin things. We will
opea their eyes and give them backbone.
When the forces of vice are daily brought
to bear on an official and nobody opposes
them. It is natural that he should be
swayed and give way to them. Nearly all
the ministers in the county favor the so
ciety and will Join it. All laymen who ate
interested in the movement will be wel
comed. The movement may develop into
one as grand as the one of which the Rev.
Parkhurst Is the head."

AFTER LUMBER KINGS.
Insnrance Men May Prosecnte Them for
fctarting- Forest Fires.
CHICAGO, Sept. 2S. President W. J. Lit
tlejohn, of the Underwriters' Association;
of the Northwest, who, in an Address be
fore that organization, declared that the re
cent forest fires were ordered started by
lumber kings, In an Interview stated that
hia charges were based on Investigations
made under his direction. 'These flren
have occurred every year," said Mr. Llttle
john" and it was apparent that there must
be some motive for the incendiarism. Our
company accordingly sent men up into
Michigan and Wisconsin this summer to
make investigations, and they secured sufli
Icent evidence to satisfy me, in my own
mind, that some of the big lumber dealers,
fired the forests In order to hide the evi
dences of their tim'ber stealings. The evi
dence is not sufficiently strong to warrant,
charging any particular men with the
deed3, however. I am Informed that the
States of Michigan and Wisconsin have ap
pointed secret commissions to investigate
tires. Until we know that such Is the case
and what results, follow the work of the
State authorities the insurance organiza
tion will do nothing. There is a possibility,
however, that, in event of the failure of
these commissioners to develop the matter.
some of the insurance unions will take up
the prosecution themselves. I am conflden;
thit State authorities can secure all the
necessary evidence if they try, for th
slight Investigation I have already made
convinces me that there are wealthy lumber
men who should be made to suffer for th
horror and destruction or this year's lires."

He Says that While Englishmen Claim

Has Had No Like Influence Here.
WILSON'S SPEECH REVIEWED
His Lack of Faith in His Own
Government Pointed Out.
Committee Appointed to Notify Mr. Hill
and His Fellow-Nominees New York
GAL.DIPOLIS, O., Sept. 28. Here, in a
beautiful park on the bank of the Ohio
river, on whose opposite shore rises the
hills of West Virginia, the author of the
McKinley tariff law paJd his compliments
to the author of the Wilson tariff law. It
was a notable occasion. There was a good
sized audience present, composed In part of
West Virginians, who joined as heartily as
their Ohio neighbors in applauding the sa
tirical references to the famous West Vir
ginian who Is at the head of the ways and
means committee of the national House of
Representatives, Mr. Wilson. In. the course
of hi3 long address Governor McKinley In
quired what Industries the tariff law of 1894
created and what existing Industries It had
stimulated, ani said:
"I find answer to my question in the
newspaper dispatches of to-day from Lon
don, furnishing particulars of a banquet
given by the Chamber of Commerce of
Ixmdon to Mr. Wilson, member of Congress
from the State of West Virginia, whose
rug;rcd hillsides I see just over tne river.
Sir Albert Kaye Itollitt. who presided at
the banquet, said that Mr. Wilson's name
had become honored and familiar in ling
land, and that Dondon, In honoring him,
honored ltjelf; that the new tariif law,
while it rrigiit not have realized the as
pirations of its promoters, had already ben
efited England. Furnaces have been re
opened in Wales and Yornshire and an im
petus had been given to tne textile Indus
trie?, 'iiiis will be cneerir.g news to toe
?orIe of the United States, and will bring
comfort to the idle men who for a j-ear
have been, waiting for the American mwls
to reoi -en. Yea nave not heard of any
corrmencial body In tlia United States,
through its spokesman, declaring that tny
industries in America have been stimulated
by thi3 law, whatever benents have gone
to other countries. While the banquet at
London was proceeding the Kdinburgh
Hoard of Trade sent it3 congratulations.
There was a singular absence oi any Amer-
can dispatches. (Prolonged applause.)
"Here is a word of encouragement which
Mr. Wilson himself gave to the gentlemen
of London. He said: 'Our protectionists
have been building defenses to keep you
and other nations from competing with us
In our home marltets. Tne tan ft reformers
are breaking down these defenses.' Taat,"
continued Governor McKinley, "is what we
object to. If we do not defend our home
markets against the products of the cheap
er labor of other countries who will? la It
any wonder that the gentlemen of the
Cn.imiber of Commerce of Jxmdon applaud
ed Mr. Wilson when he uttered such a sen
timent? Mr. Wilson even despairs of free
government, for he sail: Ve are being
rapidly sobered, though unappalled by the
truth forced upon us that of all human
governments a tree government ia the most
complex and difficult, and, judging from
the world s experience, the most uncertain

Work of the Xcvr York Constitution
ALBANY, N. , Sept. 23. To-day was,
practically, the closing day of the New
York State constitutional convention. The
chief bone of contention has been the ap
portionment for future senatorial and as
sembly districts. The Republican majority
claims that the apportionment is fair tc all
concerned, but the Democratic minority
claims it discriminates against the 'large
cities in favor of the country districts and
that the discrimination was unfair to the
Democratic party as a whole. It was voted
to split the bill into sections, though the
sections are not as numerous as the leaders
cf the Democratic minority would have pre
ferred. The measure will be submitted to
the people' In the form of three ballots. The
first ballot provides for the adoption of the
twenty-nine articles; the second for the
apportionment articles, and the third for
the canal Improvement measure.
President Choate appointed a committee
to prepare an address to the people, ex
plaining the work of the convention. The

WASHINGTON. Sept. 2S. Secretary La-

general situation as to the gubernatorial
canvass, said: "I see no reason why Mr.

His Ticket Xot Likely to Receive
Formal llecoRnlt loti.
OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 2S.-To-morrow the
regular State Democratic convention offi
cials will attempt to file the certificate
showing the ticket selected by that body
on Wednesday. It Is understood the Sec
retary of State will refuse to receive it on
the theory that the certificate filed by the
bolters settles the question as far as his
authority extends. Mandamus proceedings
will follow at once, but it is feared It will
be unnecessarily delayed until too late. The
bolters filed an amended certificate to-day
to correct the dates of the opening and
cicsing of the convention. The law
governing the case where objection is made
to the filing of certificates of nominations
is ps follows:
"All certificates of nomination which are
in apparent conformity with the pro
visions of this ect shall be deemed valid
unless objections thereto are duly made
in writing within three days after the filing
of the same. The officer with whom the
original certificate wa filed shall In the
first Instance pass upon the valldltv of
such objection, and his decision shall be
Aral, unless an order shall be made in tr.t
matter by a county court or by a judge
of the District Court, or by a justice of
the Supreme Court at chambers, on or be
fore the Wednesday preceding the elec
tion. Such order may be made summrilv
uoon application of any party Interested,
and upon such notice as the court and
judge may require .

CHICAGO, Sept. 2S. "Jack the Whipper"

approval Is to plant a few lusty welta with
a rawhide upon every pair of lloomers
that he can find with a girl Inside them.
His plan for the last two nights has been
to wait behind a tree until a bicyclist In

and plies the rawhide vigorously. Ha has
severely whipped two young women and
pursued several others. The park police
men, have far been unable to catch him.

Fitzsimmons Reported to He Angary
Dan Creedou's Story of tho Fight at
2sev Orleans Alleged Foul Hlow.
10 RTLA N D, Me., Sept. 2S. Pugilist Cor-
bett was indignant to-day when shown a
dispatch sent out by Joan L. Sullivan last
night, accusing him of beating about the
bush. Corbett said. In substance: "These
people do not cut any Ice, with me. Sulli
van had always more mouth than courage.
He is a. Quitter from the word go, and 1
do not want to have anything to do with
him. He is out oC it, but there is one
thing: If I ever meet Fltislmmons in the
ring I will make a better fisht than Sulli-
van did with me. Of course. Jake Kilr&m,
Sullivan and Jackson are sore, and I know
it, but that does not make any difference
to me. The Olympic Club does not want a
fight; It wants to make money out of me.
Now I am not inclined to let it until I have
proof that fitzsimmons Js somewhere in
my class, and this he can demonstrate by
knocking out O'Donnell. I am making
good money now, and am not taking any
rinks to please any number of soreheads."
Corbett became excited, as he talked, and
plainly showed that he is deeply touched by
the various stories which have been circu
latcd within tht past few hours. To-night
Corbett sent the following letter to Fitz
simmons: "Dear Sir I have read In this morning's 4
papers yur very amusing challenge to me.
You "say that the Olympic Club offers a
parse. Well, maybe they do, but I hava
never heard from tnem as yet. You put
$10,000 In the Olympic Club's hands. Why
don't you put it up in some newspaper of
fice, or some place whre a man can sea
It; or is the Olympic Club backing you?
However, that's neither here nor there. I
suppose you are afraid If you put the
money up in any other place besides the
Olympic Club some one else might cover
it. It is not necessary for me to give a
reply to your challenge, because 3'ou ar
well aware that I will not accept It unless
vou prove yourself a champion 'heavy
weight and not a 'middle weight. I must
acknowledge that as a 'middle weight you
have no equal, but all you ever did in the
'heavy-weight' class was to defeat Peter
Maher and Joe Choynskl, two second-class
heavy weights, since both of these men
have been defeated by Joe (Joddard, of Aus
tralia, another socond-class heavy weight.
No one knows this better than you.
"I suppose you think that the public will
think 'you're a very brave man to chal-
crere an(j fight me. Why shouldn't you do
so? It ia Just like buying a lottery ticket
to win $ ,CfiJ for IL All you have to lo.e
is Jl, and It Is the same case In fighting
me. If I defeated you, of course, you
would say: 'He ought to beat me; I am
ohly a middle weight." Just as when I beat
Sullivan it wan said, , 'He. is an old man;
and Mitchell, 'He was a light fellow; h
was too, small.
"Now. Mr. Fitzsimmons, If you really
in your heart want to fight for the cham
pionship of the world you certainly, if you
rt on the level, want to prove yourself
a champion heavy weight, and not a mid
dle weight. All you have to do In the world
to fight me for the championship is to
r.-ove to me and the world that you are
capable of defeating any middle weight out
side of me. You Fay that I promised to
give you a match If you defeated Choynskl
oi Creedon. When you say that you know
tiat vou lie. I never even noticed you.
and don't intend to unless you prove your
self a 'champion heavy weight ou want
to Jumo over the heads or ail tnese otner
people and take that dying chance with
me. but I will fool you. Steve O'Donnell,
my present sparring partner, aa unde
feated man, has $10,ttX that ne can defeat
you. He will box you from one round ta
a finish, for fun or for money.
"Now. how can you expect me to recog
nire you when this man stands ready with
money beWnd him to prove to the world
that he is your superior? If you will only
mt him and defeat him I will accept an
offer of $23,000 from the Olympic Club,
and I will give you all the ngnx you want
If you want to fight me this is the only
way you can ever get me to make a match
with you. for there Is no powArr on earth
that will make me notice you until you
have defeated Steve O'Donnell, and any
further talk from you I will consider sim
ply put down as a bluff. I put myself on
record In black and wblte that if you de
feat O'Donnell I will fight you for the
championship of the world and all the
money you like. This is positively my ulti
matum. Yours truly.

This was the response of Iobcrt Fitz
simmons, champion mlo.dle-w eight, to James
J. Corbett's statement sent out by the preas
last night. Fitzsimmons and a crowd of
sports stopped over here for a whilo to
day on their way North from New Or

mad at Corbett. "He wants me to meet
Steve O'Donnell, eh? Let O'Donnell whip
