AM) Charged rrlth Criminally Assaulting Mild Cm u n 1 ii if the Death of Jennie Bosscheiter. NEW YORK. Nov. 2. The grand jury fit Faterson, N. J., to-day returned In dictments against Walter C. MeAlister, George J. Kerr, William A. Death and Andrew Campbell, who are charged with the murder of Jennie Bosschelter, who was drugged to death on Oct. IS. There were two indictments against each of the young men, one for murder and the other for rape, the first, it is said, al30 embracing the latter. Judge Barkalow received tho Indictments and instructed County Clerk Winlleld that the indictments both for murder and assault be transmitted and de livered to the Court of Oyer and Terminer, over which Supreme Court Justice Dixon presides. It is not known when Judge Dixon will come to arraign the men. They cannot be arraigned before any other Judge. It Is Improbable he will come to Faterson before the January term. It is said that while the grand jury was considering the case some of the members were disposed to lind an indictment against Sculthorpe on his own admissions, as an accessory to the assault, at least, but they were in the minority. The hac-kman claimed to know nothing about the condi tion of the girl when she was bundled into his rig and that when he arrived at the Rock road he was coerced by two of the men into doing: as he was told. It is alleged that in the course of the discussion of the case among the members of the grand Jury it was said that Jennie's heart was weak and It was suggested that this may have been the causn of her death. There was no evidence that chloral was administered and this point can only be determined by th analysis of the stomach or by a confession from one of the accused men. The physicians could not say posi tively that death was due to a poisonous drug", but this matter will be cleared before the case comes to trial. It was said in sup port of the 5tatement that death may have been due to a weak heart that on one occa sion Jennie, while standing on a street cor ner talking to two young men. fell in a faint and remained unconscious for half an hour. The vote on the indictment is said tc have been unanimous. The chemical analyst of the dead girl's organs is being made at a laboratory in New York city, of which Prof. Witthaus, who has figured in the Molineux, Rice and other cases, is the head. The analysis has not yet been completed and no report has been made to the county physician. On this report much Is said to depend, it is said it may be needful to accept the con fession of Campbell or Death or both as witnesses and accept pleas of guilt from them to the crime of rape only. Jf the chemical analysis is strong enough the con fessions may not be used. Even if the analysis docs not establish the administra tion of the drug, it is said that the State may elect to eliminate that feature of the mat ter and proceed to trial upon the assump tion that the violence of the assault caused heart lailure and death and that would entail the death penalty as much as the administration of the drug.

Leant Forty Thousand. NEWARK, N. J., Nov. 2. When the work of the campaign came almost to a close in New Jersey to-day. National Committee man Franklin Murphy', chairman of the New Jersey Republican ätate committee, furnished the following statement: "We have made very thorough canvass of New Jersey, and have carefully investi gated the conditions In all sections of the State that are considered any way doubt ful, and the result of the canvass assures us of a majority for McKinley of at least to.ooo to 50.000. The Republican majority in the Legislature on joint ballot will prob ably be about forty-rive, which of course will secure the re-election of Senator Sewell to the United States Senate. As for our representation in the national House, the State delegation now stands six Republic ens and two Democrats. We exject to gain one district and very likely two, which would give us a solid Republican delega tion. In the Hudson county district, now neld by the Democrats, there is a strong Republican tide running, and the friends of sound money and honest government are very active and hopeful of success." Cockrnu linn Changed Since 1SOC. NEW YORK, Nov. 2. A Democratic rally was held to-night in Trospect Hall, South Brooklyn, W. Bcurke Cockran being the principal speaker. Referring to trusts, he said: "The only men that know anything about most existing corporations are the direct managers. It is not trade. It is a gambling yes, gambling with 'loaded dice. A corporation manager goes into Wall street, and with prior or private knowledge against that of his fellow-speculator gam bles with 'loaded dice.' Mr. Bryan stands for a standard of justice that is not lati tudinal or longitudinal. It is universal, and will render impossible the present forms of corporate and monopolistic fraud." Still further along he 'said: "With Wil liam J. Bryan there will be publicity. Pub licity is justice. Bryan is an honest man. and his election will enforce disclosure of the dishonest methods of corporate se crecy." Students Mnst Vote at Horn?. NEW YORK. Nov. 2 According to a decision made to-day by Magistrate Deuel in tho Yorkville Court, students at educa tional institutions cannot vote at the com ing election. The case in which the magis trate rendered the decision was that of Orin Gidding.i Cox, a student in Union Theological Seminary. Cox lives in Sche nectady county, this fe--.ate, and registered as living In the seminary. He was sum moned to court and the decision made. Cox promised not to vote and was discharged. Extra Voting Booth. NEW YORK, Nov. 2. Owing to the lack of voting facilities in many election dis tricts In Manhattan and the Bronx, the Police Board to-day let emergency con tracts for forty wooden voting booths. This was necessary because In three precincts so many citizens had registered that It would be impossible for them to vote on election day within the prescribed hours at the regular booths. A redisricting of the city will take place after election. Mr. Lone S peaks in Colorado. COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., Nov. 2. Secretary of the Navy John D.

IlernMteln So Badly Punished That In tervention Vas an Aet of 3Iercy McGovern as Terrible as Ever. LOUISVILLE. Nov. 2. Terry McGovern, the marvel of the prize ring, defeated Joe Bernstein, of New York, in the seventh round, before the Nonpareil Athletic Club and 5,000 people to-night. The feather weight championship was involved, and the battle was scheduled for twenty-five rounds, according to the Eastern interpre tation of straight Marquis of Queensberry rules. The inducement was a purse of 5,500, of which the victor received $2,50-3. George Siler was referee. Bernstein had withstoal the onslaughts of the Brooklyn wonder for twenty-five rounds before the Broadway Athletic Club in New York April 28, 159:), and his entrance to the arena a second time to do battle with the bantam and feather-weight cham pion of the world was characterized by confidence and determination. He had been here for several days preparing himself, and was trained to the hour. "Terrible Teddy," with all the ferocity and speed for which he is noted, took his time, only occa sionally sailing Into Bernstein, but when he did it was with a slashing succession of blows which appeared to be snatched from a mysterious source. After two minutes and five ;reonds of tho seventh i mnd he rammed, barged and beat down the He brew. The conquerer of Dixon, Erne and all the other little stars of the fistic flrma rr.ent had a cautious foe with a rnineh in either hand, but McGovern, credited with the ability to deliver a blow harder than the average' professional heavyweight, blocked, rushed and bewildered h?3 antag onist with blows from all directions, and seemingly at the same Instant. Picking the Winne. was never a consideration. The question was: "How long will Bernstein last?" That was the betting proposition. Tho battle was the first championship contest in the South in recent years, and attracted great interest hereabouts. Sport ing men came from Chicago, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St. Louis and Nashville. The crowd clamored early for admission and by 8 o'clock the lower seats were filling rapidly, and the chairs In the gallery weri all taken and the aisles were Jammed. It was 11:37 when McGovern entered the ring, wearing black trousers, a saffron colored sweater and light top coat. His hands were bandaged. lie was smiling, j-.nd the crowd cheered him loudly. At 11:43 Bernstein got Into the ring and said he vlshed 123 pounds. Jake Isaacs acted as Bernstein's timekeeper. Jack McKee of itciatiHl for McGovern. In the first round honors were even. In the second Bernstein went down twice. In the third and fourth honors were divided. In the fifth Bernstein was on the defen sive and Terry hot after him. Terry landed a left 'on the ear and a right in the eye. McGovern missed right and left swings. Bernstein led, but was blocked. McGovern led twice, but missed. Terry landed a right on Joe's ear. Joe ducked a left swing. Mc Govern missed a hard right uppercut. Joe landed a left on the jaw. Terry uppercut Joe hard. Terry landed over the heart. McGovern knocked Joe to the ropes with a right over the heart. Terry landed hard on the kidneys. McGovern missed two punches. , Terry rushed Joe and landed left and right on face in tho sixth round. Joe ran into a clinch. Bernstein landed a left on Terry's nose. Bernstein landed another good ri?ht on Terry's jaw. Both men ran into a clinch without damage. Terry landed hard right on the kidneys. Terry landed four rights on the kidneys, and a lively exchange of body blows followed. Joe Jarred Terry with a hard left on the mouth. He landed another on Terry's jaw and a right on Terry's ear. Terry knocked Joe to the ropes with a hard right on the fa.ee. Then they clinched. Terry landed on Bern stein's body with a right. In the seventh Terry rushed Joe. Terry led his left, but missed. Terry landed a light left an Joe's body. Terry landed a hard right on the heart and another one in the samo place. Joe landed a left on the jaw. Terry then fought Joe down. He was down eight seconds, and then went down again. McGovern showed his whirlwind form, and ripped in killing stabs that took the steam out of tho Hebrew. Down Bern Stein went repeatedly, the Terror walking around him like a tiger. Bernstein was un able to continue after a right hook to the jaw, and Referee Slier waved Terry to his corner and stopped the fight. An explanation was made from the arena by Manager Rucker that the delay In start ing the fight was caused by Joseph Humph ries attaching Bernstein's end of the purse. He said Humphries had arranged the match, but when Bernstein came to Louis ville John D. Dougherty accompanied him and had since managed Bernstein's affairs. A compromise, he said, had been effected. Oscar Gardner and Dave Sullivan chal lenged the winner. The first preliminary bout was between George Bloomer and Peter Parretto at catch weights. It was a warm Introduc tion. Near the close of the third round Parretto was disqualified for fouling after being repeatedly cautioned. The second preliminary, featured as a star, brought together Danny Dougherty, the 110-pound champion and sparring part ner of McGovern. and Kid St. Clair, of Louisville. The bout was awarded to Dougherty on a foul. Choynskl Won on n Foul. DENVER, Col., Nov. 2. With blood streaming from cuts over each eye Fred Russell, the California heavyweight, broke from a clinch as the gong sounded the close of the fourth round of his fight with Joe Choynski before the Colorado Athletic Association to-night, and put two stiff punches to Joe's body, knocking him clear through the ropes to the floor, where he remained nearly five minutes. The foul cost Russell the fight, which he possibly would have won but for his Inattention to the bell. His weight and great strength were too much for Joe. although the latter, even though very tired, cleverly avoided a number of knock-out swings and punches antl had Russell's face badly cut up. The "go" was scheduled for ten rounds. Rus sell tried to make a .smash-and-bang af fair of it. and had Joe running a good deal of the time. a Sullivan Won on Point. CHICAGO, Nov. 2. Tommy Sullivan, of Brooklyn, was given the decision over Young Mowatt. of Chicago, at the end of six rounds to-night. The fighting was very even all through, but Sullivan had a clear lead on points. The Cafnnjltou Crnker. New York Evenincr Post. Every now rev U t 'on of Crok r's charac ter, liko M.e o.u which he made yesterday, increases the handicap .which Bryan car ries in the piesUU'iUla! rare by reason of his support. As we pointed out r.Heitiy, Tammany is known and understood throughout the country, and th name of Croker Is familiar throughout the United HtH.tcs. Tbrt two Democratic candidates fcince the civil war who hive carried the ooubtfui .StrtUs wore :nen who hvj incurred the hostility of Tammany, &nd Uryan la now suffering as much from the friendship of Croker as Tilden and Cleveland profited by the enmity of the boss of Tammany when tht-j' ran. Observers in Indiana report cases where men who had previously hes itated as to how they should vote decided to go against Bryan after he accepted Croktr' hospitality and paid public tribute to Tammany and its boss. As one Quaker put it. "This act revealed a new paase of Brvan's character, and shows what' ho is willing to do to gain an advantage for him self." It is gratifying to find that Tam many is so well understood by the nation as this incident shows. FEW PERSONS MISSING. New York ExploHion Cnnnalty Lint Cut Down A Clerk Wanted. NEW YORK, Nov. 2. The police de partment has been investigating the list of persons reported missing in connection with the Tarrant fire for the purpose of getting at a correct list of persons sup posed to have lost their lives in the fire. The persons reported were Investigated through the station nearest the address given for them, and In many cases they were reported as safe. In some cases the police could not find the supposed missing person at the address given. . The list as revised to-day shows eighteen persons re ported missing and not accounted for. Of these six are not known at the addresses given by the persons who repotted them missing. On the list Is the name of Benja min Moorehouse, a clerk for Tarrant & Co. The authorities persist in declaring their belief that he is alive and purposely keeping his whereabouts secret. "We have detectives out after Moorehouse and ex pect to land him soon," said Assistant Dis trict Attorney Walsh, who is assisting in the fire marshal's investigation. Moorehouse's family and neighbors at Montclalr, N. J., are convinced that he perished in the dis aster. A resident of Montclalr, who was in New York at the time of the fire says he saw Moorehouse standing in front of the building directly after the fire started but since that time no one has seen him or heard from him. The fire department Investigation of the explosion closed to-day after the testimony of Louis Patterson and George C. Thomp son, employes of Tarrant & Co., had been taken. Thompson is bookkeeper of the firm, but he showed an ignorance of what was in storage in the upper floors, and no important evidence was drawn from him. He said Moorehouse. the missing clerk, was the only man that knew just what material was In the bullding. Dr. Lederle. health department analyst, who examined the seven drums found In the ruins, said to-day that they had contained analine p oil. which is only a little less explosive tnan Kerosene. THOSE GRAY TABLETS TOIXT IX TIIK RICH MYSTKRY THAT IS NOT YET CLEAR. Statement by the District Attorney, n Doctor nittl n Xnrwr -Valet Jones Improving;. NEW YORK, Nov. 2. Charles F. Jones, valet of tho late William M. Rice, is still in the hospital, but is improving. His at tempt to commit suicide, following his con fession and charge that Albert T. Patrick poisoned the millionaire, is still the chief topic In Criminal Court circles. Assistant District Attorney Osborne, In a further statement given out this after noon, says that Dr. Bull, the surgeon, per formed an operation on Rice's face about six months before he died. As an anti septic wash he prescribed bichloride of mercury. Mr. Osborne said this had a tearing on the case, as Jones had con fessed that Patrick gave Rice gTayish tab lets. The tablets prescribed by Dr. Bull were of grayish color. Mr. Osborne fur ther stated that Prof. Wltthaus knew nothing of this in making his analysis. Dr. W. T. Bull, who performed the opera tion on Rice's face, said later: "I was called In by Rice's physician, Dr. J. Milton Mabbott. of 13 Fifth avenue, to perform a slight operation on Rice's face. The opera tion was not serious and did not even re quire ether." Miss R. J. Evans, Dr. Bull's head office nurse, who had charge of the operation, said: "I did use bichloride of mercury, but I took away every tablet not used. I diluted the tablets and bathed Mr. Rice's face with the solution. These tablets were bluish in color, and not gray, although some one not acquainted with them might say they were of a grayish tinge." Dr. Bull continued, by saying: "There are white tablets of this sort, but I never use them. I, myself, am not very well ac quainted with the effects the tablets would have when taken internally. 1 know they would cause extreme congestion of the bowels and severe Inflammation. I do not know whether they would kill a man unless taken in large quantities. The tab lets are sold at drug stores like headache drops and other articles, without any red tape, and in that way they could be easily secured. As a face wash they are per fectly harmless." Fred B. House, counsel for Jones and Patrick, uccompanied by former Assistant District Attorney George Gordon Battle, went to Bellevue Hospital this afternoon and were admitted to the prison ward to ec Jones." They talked with Jones for over a half hour. When leaving Mr. House said that he called simply to visit Jones, seeing that he was in such trouble. He called him "a poor young man in hard luck." When asked why Mr. Battle was with him he evaded the question and posi tively refused to say whether Mr. Battle would be a counsel in the case. Mr. Bat tle would not talk at all. Efforts were made this afternoon to de termine the exact condition of the lungs of William Marsh Rice, the millionaire, alter 'his death. Jones, in the confession he made before he cut his throat in the tombs, said he saw Albert F. Patrick hold ing a towel. In the shape of a cone, over the aged milllonorie's face. Assistant Dis trict Attorney Osborne, who said he would communicate with Professor Wltthaus concerning the matter, declared that the autopsy had revealed a state of affairs consistent with smothering. Whether the lungs have been preserved was not known at the district attorney's office to-day, but it is believed that they, with other organs, were removed before the millionaire's body was cremated. President McKinley' Visitor. CANTON, O.. Nov. 2. President and Mrs. McKinley joined a party of friends and neighbors of long standing at a dinner party this evening at the home of Miss Buckingham, the daughter of the minister who married them. Judge and Mrs. Day were among the guests. There was the usual number of callers at the McKinley home to-day, but nothing of special signi ficance in the day'H doings so far as the public is concerned. Consul to Liverpool James Boyle, who was Mr. McKinley's private secretary while he was Governor, reached the city this evening to pay his respects. Troop to Protect n Xejcrro. ATLANTA. Oa., Nov. 2.

NEW YORK, Nov. 2. William L. Strong, the last mayor of the old City of . New York, died suddenly at 3 o'clock this morn ing at his residence in this city, after an illness of about six weeks. His sickness had been kept from his political friends. It was known among his business asso ciates in the wholesale dry pods district, but no one suspected that ' his condition was alarming. Mr. Strong had not been at his place of business for several days. Mr. Strong took an active part in the present campaign, and It is said that his political labors, combined with his attempts tc retain supervision over his business af fairs, in the face of impaired health, brought about the Illness that resulted In his death. ? He ate supper as usual last night and did not complain of any pain or weakness af. that time. About 11 o'clock he retired to his bedroom, assisted by two nurses, who had been in attendance from the beginning of his Illness. About an hour after he had gone to bed he awoke and told tho nurses that he was very weak. He asked to have his wife and son. Major Bradlee Strong, called. They soon came to the room. When Mr. Strong saw his wife he put his arm about her and said: "I am very, very- weak." Mr. Strong grew a little better, and as his con dition at that time did not seem alarming, the phj-slclan was not sent for.' His daugh ter, Mrs. Shattuck, and her husband, were called, however. A little before 3 o'clock Mr. Strong seemed to change for the worse and his physician was hastily summoned, but he did not arrive until after the pa tient's death. It was announced at the residence of the late William L. Strong to-night that the funeral arrangements had not been com pleted, but would be made public to-morrow. Cornelius N. Bliss, chairman of the ex ecutive committee of the American Protec tive Tariff League, to-night announced-, a committee tp be present at the funeral services of the late ex-mayor. William L. Strong was born In Ohio In 1S26. He was the son of a father who had f cone to the Western country from Con necticut. At the age of thirteen Mr. Strong was left an orphan, and this served to de velop the young man's capacity. He worked in different dry goods establish ments, and finally went to New York as an employe of the house of I. O. AVllson &: Co. He was in their employ until, in 1S5S, he entered the house of Farnham, Dale & Co. On Jan. 1, 1S70. Mr. Strong started business for himself, and the firm of W. L. Strong & Co. was brought into existence. From that moment one of the most successful business firms this country ever saw rose to prominence. He also be came president of the Central National Bank, and made it one of the strongest financial institutions of this country. His election to the mayorallty of New York in 1S94 was a wonderful victory, and every ai.te-electlon pledge he made was kept. His majority was 43,187. His opponent, on the Democratic ticket, was Hugh J. Grant. Mr. Strong was a director in the Central National Bank and the Merchants' Associa tion. He was vice president and trustee of the New York Security and Trust Com pany, and trustee of the New York Life Insurance Company. He was also a mem ber of a number of societies, Including the Ohio Society. American Fine Arts Society, American Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum Association and American Geographical Society. At a mass meeting in Madison Square Garden in ISM a nonpartisan committee of seventy was appointed to organize the op position to Tammany Hall, to frame a plat ftrm and select candidates for office, and it was this committee that selected Mr. Strong to run for mayor on the reform platform. ' The nomination was accepted and the candidate entered into the cam paign with vigor and determination. The administration of Mr. Strong was an event ful one. It was he who appointed Colonel Waring commissioner of street cleaning, and in spite of periods of strong opposition within and outside of the party, kept him in the office until the end of the mayor's term. The affairs of the police depart ment Mr. Strong placed in the hands of a commission board, whose head was Col. Roosevelt, whose early conferees were Col Fred D. Grant, Major Avery D. Andrews r.nd Mr. Parker. The mayor was often accused of wasting money on improve ments. His invariable reply was. that wherever he spent a dollar he "had ä dol lar's worth to show for it." Mr. Strong was avowedly Independent in his views on city politics. In the municipal campaign of 1S97, which resulted In the re turn of Tammany to power, he took the stump for Seth Low, as against General Benjamin F. Tracy, the regular Republican candidate. After this election he virtually retired from active politics on account of failing health. He spoke for Colonel Roose velt, however, in 1S98, and had since been interested and influential In the councils of the independent wing of the Republican party of this county. A Personal Friend of McKinley. CANTON, O., Nov. 2.News of the death of ex-Mayor Strong, of New York, was re ceived with feelings of great sorrow at the McKinley home. The deceased was es teemed as a personal friend of long stand ing. Immediately upon receipt of the news, the President sent a telegram of condolence to the bereaved family. OTHER DEATHS.

While An other Says He Will He Delayed. LONDON". Nov. S. The South African situation Is improving, and Lord Roberts will shortly return to England with a ma jority of his staff. Arrangements are be ing made .in Cape Town to send the first batch of refugees back to Johannesburg, and accommodation is being provided at Bloemfonteln for a garrison of 7,000. Never theless, the activity of the Boers continues. On Oct. 26 a commando of 300 captured a garrison of thirty men at Redderburg, but afterward released them. Trains from the south to Pretoria are attacked by the Doers almost daily. On Oct. 24 the burghers oc cupied Koffyntln. On the other hand. Gen. Knox has Inflicted a reverse on General De Wet's forces near Parys. capturing two guns, one of them a weapon lost by the British in the Sannas post affair. The dally tale of British casualties is heavy. During the month of October .the British lost 1C7 killed in action. Including fifteen officers, seventy-one who died of wounds, 2C7 who died of disease, twenty two who died of accidents and ninety-seven captured or missing, a total almost equal to the monthly average for the duration of the war. The Dally Kxpres3 publishes sensational statements that the Boer revival Is more serious than has hitherto been believed, and that In consequence Lord Roberts's return is likely to be still further postponed. It says also that no considerable party of troops will return before January or Feb ruary, while the regimental drafts from England will continue and 6,000 horses will be sent out. The paper definitely declares that the Boers are well armed and abun dantly supplied with ammunition, and that the campaign is likely to last another six months. In the best-informed quarters, however. It Is asserted that there is no ground for the pessimism of the Daily Ex press. CAHLISM TO BE HOOTED OUT.
