Nellie Bly Starts Out on a Wondrous
Flying Trip Around the Globe.
Thirty Thousand Miles Through
Many Countries and Baok to
New York.
To Surpass Jules Yerne's Dream of
Rapid Transit Round the Earth.
The World's" Woman Writer Em
barks on the Augusta Victoria.
It's Her Own Advcnturo and She Is
Plucky and Confident.
"I never wept In my life, but Icams verynear
having a Rood cry when I bade my mother good
by. " said Mian Nellie Dlv to an EvENiJto Would
reporter. aB sho stood on the hurricane deck of
the Hamburg Bteamehip Victoria Augusta thla
Miss Bly sallod away from New York thi
moraine bound for Now York.
Bho will put a cirdlo 'round the earth, and will
sec all climatos and peoples ero she tetnrns.
Bhe will give thanks at Iamallla and spend
Christmas at Hone Eons. .
TJiejaew year will dawn upon her at Yoko
hama, in the land of the Mikado, and on Jan.
22 her great brown eyes will look again upon
her native land and she will enter Columbia's
domain by tho Golden (late.
A five dai a' ride across thla broad continent,
and the spirited, plucky and adventurous little
Illy will touch tho noli of thin metropolis, after a
complete journey around the globe.
The Evkmno Wnnr.o reporter who bade Miss
Illy good-by this moraine Is only a man, and as
he surveyed the slight, willowy, girlish figure
of the llttio circumnavigator clad In a close-fitting
travelling gown of dark blue camel's hair
plaited with a not t golden stripe, with here and
there a stt av thread of red, and a dark blue
waist with puffed sleeves, it fairly took his
breath an ay.
He scanned tho wido-eyed, girlish face, and
found it full of smiles and with Just the faintest
business-like knitting of the smooth, low brow.
The braid of black hair, doubled on the neck
and tied with a bit of ribbon, and one of those
absurd little tourists' caps in fawn-colored
check, with useless car-laps tied over the crown,
completed tho picture.
" Csn I bo of any rcrvice to you. Miss Bly?"
Isnggestid tho reporter, adding: "To get your
luccaeo aboard or "
"Ohl My' luggage ' is aboard, thank you.
I brought it on myself. It Is down In my state
room now.
"Ohl and that reminds mo. I want you to
witness my will. I don't expect anything to
happen; but then if something should happen,
you know."
Tho reporter. II. C. Jarrett and another gen
tleman followed tho fair traveller do An to the
stateroom In solemn procesion.
Bomchow it seemed tho thing to bo solemn to
thete three men, either of them many yeara
older than tho girlish testatiix, and at least two
of them old enough to bo her father.
"Beep exclaimed the blithe Miss Bly. "I
have the bridal chamber. Isn't It a marvel of
commoilioiisncss ? Why I don't know what a
small person like mo oan do with so much room.
The bed's a bunk, but I just delight In cramping
myself all tip and sleeping in a bnnk. "
Miss Bly gravely produced an air-tight Ink
well and unscrewod the top. Then she drew
from a pocket in her gown a slip of notcpaper,
folded so that tho dozen linos comprising her
will" were hidden, and theso words appeared:
"Binned, published and declared to be my
lt Mill ami testament at tho City of Hoboken,
Btatoof Now Jeisoy, this 14th day of Noiein
ber, ihbo."
Miss Bly wrote her namo In signature and
then the witnesses signed It, too. Tho contents
of this will were a socret, but tho reporter saw
the last word, which was the only one on thu
lt line.
It was "mother."
Miss Bly sighed as she sealed the envelopo
eontainlng her will and addressed it to her
otrrriT ron Tnr oniAT joukmet.
Now, Miss Bly. tell me what you carry for
tgage and what Is your outfit, "resumed the
"portfr.ln an endeavor to relieve tho oppressive
solemnity the signing of the will had occa
ioned. Ml Bly laughed a clear, musical laugh.

na Ml" Bly. wheu asked If she had provided
herself with a medicino chest, only laughed de
risively. "Not oven a troche, " she replied. ' ' I
ai never sick an hour in my lire, and I shall
not be sick now. "
Her questioner at this moment noticed n
queer band of gold on Miss Bly's left thumb.
" What Is that for 7" he asked,
lixn rzTisn a bino.
Thero was not a blush nor an expression of
any suspicion that tho ring was odd or tho Idea
whimsical as she replied!
"That is tho savago In me. lam just super
stitious enough to bellevo In that ring. I wore
It when I applied for employmeut at The WonLD
office, and the only three days that It has been
absent from my finger I had bad luck. I wonld
not removo it for anything. I shall not be sick.
If I am I can get all the nasty medicine I want
from tho ship's doctor."
Miss Bly's only jewelry was this thumb ring,
a leather bracelet, with a wntch chain attach
ment; a chain bracelot'of gold, and a pair of
crescent loops of gold In her cars.
Ascending again to the hurilcane deck tho
bright-faced little newspapot woman found
thero a dozen f rionds from tho now snapcr world,
and thero was much shaking hands and good
b)t, but Miss Bly was tho liveliest of all.

"Dear met" sho exclaimed, tho white brow
corrugating again. "Thero are people, all
around me, but nobodv speaks English. Tho
purser and the stewardess do, though, and I
spent some weeks ln Mexico once for The
WonLD, and though I could not speak Spanish,
I managed to get along all right. I can speak

Capt. Albers was brought forward and intro
duced to his fairest passenger, and tho passen
gers, standing In groups at a little distance, gazed
ln amazement and admiration at the almost
little girl who, of her own notion, was setting
out to beat the wonderful record of Jnlos
Verno's hero, Fhlneas Fogg, who wont "Around
the World in Eighty Days" ln the author's
she'll enjoy Tne ftnr.
"I've nover beon out of sight of land, "said
Miss Bly, "but I have, no qnalms of fear. I
may be seasick, but I'll get over it, and I know
I shall enjoy the trip. I am going to mako a
record for The Would for somebody to beat,
if they can."
Thero was a lull in tho hustling, bustling of
the stevedores. The luggagn and cargo was all
shipped, and n. 30, tbe hour for departure, had
arrived. The bo's'n's shrill whletlo piped all
landsmen ashore.
railed at 0.30.
Miss Bly's dainty little glove of undrcBsed kid
gavo tho hand of tho reporter a hearty squeeze,
and tho farowoll was said. The three stacks of
the Augusta Victoria emitted puffs of blick
smoke, and the groat ship steamed majestically
out Into the North Blvcr and passed down the
bay and ont through the Narrows into the
When it was decided that Miss Bly should make
the trip sho was all animated enthusiasm ln a
moment, and in another her pretty head was
buried ln "guides" and her girlish faco
knotted in tboughful study of '"routes."
After an hour's study she announced: " I can
beat any record. I think I can do it ln seventy
flvo days. I can go by the Hamburg stoamer to
Southampton, then to London, then on tho
India mail to Calais, Farls, Turin, then to Brln
dlsl, and from thoro the steamship to Cathay;
then Ismallia, Aden, Colombo, in the Island of
Ceylon, Fenang and Singapore in Farther India;
then Jlong Kong, the British city on the Chinee
island, and then to YoKohamn.
"I will arrive at Yokohama abontNow Year's
and sail for 'Frisco on Jan. 7, reaching New
York Jan. 27. That is ln just seven tj -five
Having determined on tho trip Miss Nellie was
thoughtful. Then sho remarked demurely.
" Now the first thing for mo to do is to go homo
to my mother and have a good night's sleep. "
And that she did. Then next day Bhe began
her prepaiations. Ghorniley, the man dress
makor, builded her camel's hair gown in a day.
Bhe procured a watch which notes the hour
from 1 to 24 o'clock, and by this' sho will bo able
to compute her exact travelling time. By her
own little repeater she will know what's the time
o' day by tho time in voguo wherovor sho may
be located, and when she gots homo again she
will find that she has beaten Now York to the
extent of a day or two, for sho will constantly
travel towards tho rising sun.
The little traveller will pais through the fogs
and chilly atmosphere of Labrador and New
foundland and the thrice-heated calms of tho
lied Sea aud Tarther India. Miss Bly will pass
among the English, flcrman, French, Spanish,
Arabians, Hindoos, Chinoso and Japanese, and
readers of The Would may confidently look for
tho elaboration of many notes made in the llttio
books of tho fair "nowspapcr woman."
Miss Bly, when her journey is completed,
will havo travelled nearly no.UOO miles, or at
tho rate of 400 miles a day over land and sea
for every day of her absence from her nook in
the "city room "of The Wobld.
The first circumnavigator of tho globe was
Magalhacns, afterwhom tho Strain of Mage'l-n
wero named. He was a Portuguese ami set out
on his journey ln in 10 with the idea that tho
world wai a flat surface and that ln tlmo ho
would reach the edge and find out what was in
tho abyss Into which a straggler might tumble
if he ventured too near it. The compass
was then unlnvented, and the Bhlp was steered by
tho stars.
Capt. Francis Drake, a bold, bad buccaneer,
out for what he could flml, sailed ftom England
in 1077, paasod around Cape Horn and across
the Paclflo and back to his native land.
Capt. Cook did It at about tho same'time, and
his chroniole shows that he was three years on
the crnlse. He touched at Terra del Put go, the
"Land of Fire," Tahiti, New Zealand, Van
Dlemen's Land. Australia, the Friendly Islands,
wheie they didn't eat ou. but Just robbed ou
and turned you loose; New Hebrides, New Cale
donla. which, has been for many years tho
Freuch penal colony; the Sandwich Islands,
which had not then a King who had learned the
soduotlve game of draw-pokor. and Western
Noith America.
Slnoo Cook's day the globe-trotters have be
come an armv. The most fanions of the Anicri
can circumnavigators was tho late Secretary of
State. William II. Beward, who wrote his ad
ventures in an 800.pae tome. flcn. Grant
did It eti suite, and Jay Gould and tho Vander
bllts do it now and then, but Nolllo Bly is prob
ably the first of her sex to undertake It alone
and unprotected, and It is no hazard to predict
that her tour of tho world for The Would will
btcoino tho most famous In the annals of travel.
Bhe carries with hot tho bwt wishes of a mill
ion readers and admirers, and they will heartily
welcome her ou her return.

Tho American Association, in annual meeting
at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, was still without a
President for next roar when the session began
this morning.
Tho delegates got together again yesterday
after the break of tho afternoon, but continued
with tho same old tie voto for PIioIdk, of Louis
villc. and Kranthoff, of Kansas City.
ThiB morning tho name of W. 11. Voltz. staff
correspondent nf tho Philadelphia J'lest. was
mentioned as that of a compromise, candidate.
The Loague people had on hand this morning
tbe subject of tho percentages for visiting clubs,
carried over from last night's meeting.
ItwaB thought probable that an allowance of
from 40 to 50 pet cent, of tho gato rcoeipts
would be established for next foason.
After disposing of this business the League
will consider tho question of admitting Brook
lyn and Cincinnati, which will probably tako
the rest of the day.
President Dav said this morning that the mat
tor mado no difference to him, one way or tho
other, and ho didn't care whether the League,
had eight clubs or ten.
Tho Lenguo last night amonded Its constitu
tion, by-laws, Ac.

T he salo of plavers was abolished, and it was
provided that a player must arrange for his own
transfer in case lie, can secure tho consent of his
club to leave its employ.
At 12. On to-day tho Association delegates ad
journed until 2.30.
Tho deadlock was unbroken and was said to be
likclv to bo maintained until the matter of
Brooklyn and Cincinnati being admitted to tho
League was settled.
The Byrne faction presonted tho name of Mr
Voltz, bnt Von der Abe and his people wonldn't

J. Palmer O'Nell. of PUtsbnrg, said to-day
tbafrbo had already signed a number of Brother
hood men, but how many or their names ho re
fnscd to tell.
President Day said he didn't care about sign
ing men. but that in tho light of the plajers'
actions ho would rather enjoin them when the
time arrives for them to curry out their inten
tions of playing ball. Said ho :
" Wait until these capitalists put up their
money. Waituntll thatnu.ooo mandstsndii
built upon that lot adjoining the Polo Grounds,
and then I think I shall havo all the plaers 1
want, and that very stand may piovo very useful
to nie."
" It is a simple matter for theso men to put
out advance money to tho plaers, for that will
be repaid, and it is an easy thing to ecuro a
two or thrte months' option on grounds, but
when it conies to putting out thouxanils of
dollars witli positively no seciuity beyond a fiw
worthless contracts, jou will find the capitalists
a minus quantity."
And then Manager Powers arrived upon the
scene and Mr. Day turned to listen to that hus
tler's report of his tluee dajs' wandoriuus in
parts unknown.

Henry Koehn's Family Hake No Effort
to Prevent His Suicide.
A queer rase has come to light through per
sistent Investigation by Coronor Ilanly and
his deputy. Dr. Philip Donltn.
Henry Koehn, a gilder, died suddenly at his
home, 2217 rlecond avenue, on Tuesday even
ing, and tho Coronets' olilco was notified.
Dr. Donlln and tho Coroner wont up there
yesterday to mako an autopsy, and their suspl
cions were at once aroused by tho queer actions
of the dead man's family.
Dr. Donlin (aid to-day that Mrs. Koehn talked
in such a manner as to lead tbrm to beliovo that
the man had died from cardiao or pulmonary
Tho man was taken sick on Tuesday ovenlng,
and his son Leo. a painter, aged twcuty.one
years, wan'ed to send for a physician.
" Let me alone 1" said Koehn, and for fear of
angering the man nothing was done. The
jounp man, who Is the present Mrs. Koehn's
htcpsnn, went out and returned at 10 n clock In
the evening and found hts fsther was dead.
A physician was then called, and he notified
the Coroners' office of the caso.
The Coi oners became suspicions the moment
thev saw the body. The dead man's legs were
drawn up by cramps, which was not a symptom
of lung or heart trouble.
Mrs. Koehn also withheld tbn information that
her huaband had suffered from diarrhoea and
vomiting. Pending arrangsments tor the
autopsy, tho Coroner went out for lunch, and
while hi) was gone, the son Loo says ho heard
his stepmother chiding her daughter for having
said i.omothing which would arouso the
Coroner's suspicions.
The son told this to the Coroner, and the latter
rcsoh cd to make n full investigation.
The autopsy revealed that the man had died
from poisoning by parts green.
The Coroner then learned that tho man had
been out of work for two wieks, that ho had
been married to his present wife thirteen years
and that the couple had quarrelled frequently
during that time. .......
Furthei Inqiiirs brought out the fact that the
man had takt.u a doso of poison about ten jeara
ago, when no doctor was called, but ho re
covered, 1 lie Coroner also learned that his life was in
nil rod in tbe Knights of Honor for (2,000, the
policy being ma le in faor of his wife.
1 ho woman disclaimed ail knowledge of the
matter, bnt her stepson told tho Coroner that
liis mother told hiui his father had taken some
thing. ...
in view of tlioso conilictiug clrcumMauces,
Mrs. Koehn was luotight down to thu Lurnncrs'
othce to-day aud arraigned before Coroner
T he Coroner does not think that she ad
ministcii'd tho doi-e to her huaband, hut Is nf
thu opinion that ho ktitwnf his havitig taliin
it nml tried to ro iceal the fact from the of
ficers. He according!) laid her in 11,000 ball
to await thu inquest.
