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.
American people will permit no stain
to be put on the American name. May
these marching freemen and their patriotic
allies throughout the country stamp out
for all time in this Republic the evil3 of
repudiation and dishonor."

Republicans Will Carry the State by
at. 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. Owing to the lack
of voting facilities in many election dis

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

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.

CHICAGO, Nov. 2. Tommy Sullivan, of
Brooklyn, was given the decision over

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.
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.

Personal Friend of President McKin

of Sir. Strone'a Death.
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.

accused of wasting money on improve

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.

This striking story has been running serially in The Bookman, and has
aroused a great deal of discussion,' criticism and praise. In book form it is ex
pected to be one of the 4record" novels of the American publishing year. The
story is marked by a freshness, a vigor and a fire that are not of ten found in
contemporary fiction. The book is essentially dramatic, and situation follows
situation with a swiftness that keeps one in a constant suspense

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

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,

Baga and other districts have been obliged
to concentrate at Puycerda. A number of

it is dlfitcult to dislodge them. The French
