. GIRL'S BODY NEAR A RIVER ' policed Ay; made him move ON.
VO CLEW TO MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF
Com WOMAN NEAR PATERSON
Paterson Oct. 10 (Special).— The body of Jen
ale Bosschieter. elfhteen years old, was found
*arly this morning lying on the river bank, near
Aiyea'n Icehouse, by Marlnus Gary. A mystery
that deepens as the Investigation proceeds en
velops the case. The body was lying in a
composed position, with the feot crossed and
the hands straightened out as if they had been
•o arranged. The head rested on a stone, and
when it was raised it was found that the skull
was fractured at the base. Although there was
in open gash in the ecalp. there were only a few
drops of blood on the stone.
The spot where the body was found is just
outside the city limits of Patereon, on the Ber
gen County e!de of the river. It is about twenty
feet from the Wagaraw bridge approach, and
about fifteen from the river. Gary is employed
at the Icehouse, and he was going to his work
when his attention was attracted to the body,
which lay near the road. When he found that
the woman was dead he telephoned to Coroner
Vroom, of Ridgewood. who arrived at about 8
o'clock. Dr. Vroom said that the girl had only
been dead a few hours, possibly five. He was
positive from the hasty examination he made
that she had been killed after midnight.
When it hmsmr known that a body had been
found crouds soon collected, and the identity
of the girl w.is revealed. Her home was at No.
KB East Fifih-st.. which is a:>out a mile and a
half from the snot where her body was found.
John Boss hieter, the father, is a farmer. The
parents were soon at the office of the Icehouse,
to which the body had been removed, and they
identified the girl They rnuld throw no light
<n the c;ise. but rather Involved it in more mys
tery by relating diffen nt versions of the move
ments of the sin lasi nlcht.
The mother said tliat Jennie left her home last
night at about ~:4~> o'clock, with the purpose
of visiting Mrs. Claddy. who keeps a confec
tionery store on upper Main-.=t. The girl had
been in the habit <•: paying frequent visits to
Mrs. daddy and staying all night at her home,
so that when she did not return the family did
not think anything £t range of it. Jennie's Bis
ters told the same story. The father, however,
says that Jennie went out with a young man
last night He did not know the name of the
man. There is another story which came from
the family' early in the morning, and that was
that Jennie Ipft the bouse last night to get some
medicine at a neighboring drug store. When
found me girl had 15 cents in her pocket, and
th;s is said to be the sum she had Intended to
use at the drug store. The family deny this story
now. and all except the father say that she
went tG visit Mrs. Claddy It has been learned
that the ?r.l went out frequently in the evenings
with a young m.in named William Tanis. The
latter had never called at the home, but the
family knew that Jennie went out with him.
It was soon found that the girl had not been
:o Mrs. daddy's store la!=t nisht. and not the
<=lighie-t trace ha? been discovered of her move
ments after she left her home. The spot where
.-hr- v.'-< found is In the opposite direction from
the store, and the two points are four miles
"part. Th'- Wagaraw Bridge is a lonely place.
The men who have been working on the case
have different theories a* to how the girl got
there. According to Dr. Vrooxn the girl was
killed after midnight, but no one seems to have
beard or seen the girl during the interval be
tween her leaving the bouse and her death. Dr.
v*«<.<-.m says it is possible that the wound in the
back of the girl's head could have been made
by the stone on which hr head rested. She was
a Strong girl physically, and the force which
caused the wound mw«t have been great. The
doctor does not explain the absence of blood on
the stone. One theory Is that the girl was de
fending her honor and was thrust vio'tnt'y
back, her head striking the jagged stone on
which it afterward rested. Another theory Is
that the murder was committed elsewhere, and
that the body was taken to the lonely spot. It
If. certain 'hat some one straightened out her

Late this afternoon Coroner Vroom empanelled
a Jury, which viewed the bftdy and adjourned
until 11 o'clock to-morrow morning, when the
Inquest -will be held at Alyca's office. The Jurors
examined the ground where the body had laid.
and discovered two lines leading from the road
to where it was found. The lines looked as if
th« feet of the girl had been dragged over the
earth. The heel of one of the girl's shoes plain
ly showed that it bad been dragged.
Leonard Kamerling. of No. 14." East Flfth-st..
says that last night at 10 o'clock he was on
Maln-st.. and saw Miss Bosschleter standing in
lr< nt of Kent's drug store with two young men.
She was talking loudly, as if angry, and was
shaking her hand to emphasize her words. It
has also been learned that a young man called
at the Bosschieter home shortly after Miss
.BoEschleter left last night, and inquired for
Jennie. This terds to bear out the father's story
that a young man went off with her. It is said
that Miss Bosschleter recently fell heir to $5,000
left by a relative of her mother, who died some
years ago. Her father has married again. '
It was learned to-night that she was not
with William Tanis last night.

FUELTERS' COMBIXATIOX RVMOR.
AMERICAN COMPANY REPORTED TO HAVE
BOCGHT GUGGENHEIM'S SONS' PLANTS.
For the last few days Wall Street has heard
rumors of a combination of the American Smelting
and Refining Company with the firm of M. Guggen
heim's Sons. The latter is about the only large
concern not In the *o-call*d Smelters' Trust, and
it has been admitted by both sides that negotiations
looking toward an amalgamn.'iun have been carried
on more or less actively. According to reports, the
<:iiK^enheiins have put a price running beyond the
130.000.000 n.ark 0:1 the value of their plants, which
are in various parts of this country and Mexico
No confirmation of the latest rumor was obtainable
fr<>m either side yesterday, but the activity of
Smelters' stock in the market was thought to give
i«.>ior to the consolidation rumor*.
DEVELOPMEXT OF LOXG BEACH.
William H. Baldwin, Jr.. president of the Long
Itland Railroad Company, in discussing the plans
and purposes of his company and of Interests
affiliated with it for the development of Long
Beach, said yesterday, as quoted:
If it had not beer, that we had so many Coney Isl
and* near at hand Long Beach would have grown up
gradually or rapidly, as Atlantic City has done. But
the Long Beach project was never properly man
axed. It will, as I understand it. be hereafter In
the hands of Mr. Young, of Atlantic City, who a»
a promoter has no superiors. I can't say what will
be his Sr*t step in the improvement of the beach,
but as far as the railroad is concerned we will In
due time lay a double track from Lynhrook Junc
tion, from which point to the beach there is now
only a single track, although the roadbed is graded
for two tracks. We will not begin the work of
laying the extra track yet. as we are in hopes
that the price of rails will come down before that
time. Steel rails are now selling at $26 a ton. We
have enough rails on hand for our ordinary use
which we bought in when rails were $18. and we
don't want to buy any more until we have to, un
less the price comes down. For that reason we
will not make a double track to Long Beach until

if you vote for MeKinley and Teddy Roosevelt.
The minstrel who sang this couplet stood yes
terday at Wall and Broad sts. He was, Indeed,
dressed like a son of song. There was nothing
studied In his costume except, perhaps, the ad
justment of several rents so that they might
prove less apparent. His hat, which looked as if
It had played a shuttlecock game with fortune
ever since the invention of steam, trap placarded
with the fragments of his song.
An open satchel hung at the waist of the
troubadour and it was full of full dinner
palls. The?- were not the kind that the good
housewife so thoroughly provisions in the
morning only to find at night her choicest deli
cacies left uneaten. They were little wooden
pails about four inches high and two inches in
diameter. The body of the pail was painted
white, the lid red. and a little blue dipper capped
the top. thus completing the National colons.
The minstrel, for he was more minstrel than
salesman, and by no means a fakir, was sur
rounded by a jostling crowd, and to every quip
which some advocate of Bryanism fiung at him
he always threw back a ready response.
"Your pails r' no good. They're solid." some
one would say.
"No they're not." said the troubadour, taking
off the dipper and rover of one of his pail?.
"Ho, ho, but they're not full!" came the retort.
"Vote for MeKinley, and they'll be full." was
the quick reply.
The dinner pails were going off like Ice Trust
stock before Tammany's plot was discovered.
After the last pail was sold a Tribune reporter
"How many have you sold to-day?"
'What is your profit?" When the reporter
had revealed his identity the salesman said:
"Why. about |4. It's m> second day at it, and
I've made $!» BO far. This fuK -inner pall Is
the best thins I've ever struck My name is
Jaincs Mc-Kenna." he continued. "Almost Ale-
Kinley, isn't it?"
A policeman crossed the street at this juncture
and the dealer in full dinner palls immediately
"Those follows tre.it me downright mean,"
he said. "Kvery chance they can eret they give
me a cuff and drive ice away. I've got a license
badge, but that make* no difference. A police
man drove ire nut vt John-st. this morning, and
another chased me off Broadway. Here in Wall-
Ft. is the only place they .;on't bother me."
"Go 'long!" came a heavy voice from behind.
Before the reporter could Interpoai the man
with a pail had disappeared.
When the policeman was asked why he inter
fered with a lieensrd pedlpr that was minding
hi? business, ho replied to the reporter: "It is
ni ne of your business. On 'long;."
A fakir who was exhibiting a fantastic array
of false mußtachfs near by kept at his post with
out being disturbed. As the policeman walked
by. the mustache man kept calling out:
"Put 'em on."
"Take 'em off."

Captain O'Reilly la a Republican in politic*, but

war against the poolrooms and gambling places in

Lately the old woman had acted as 1? she were
despondent, and on Wednesday she went to her
bedroom and lonksd the floor. When her nieces,
applied for admission Mrs. Runkel refused to un
lock the door, and said she did rot want to be dis
turbed. She refused to accept food. Yesterday
afternoon the nieces determined to find out what
the trouble was and make an effort to induce her
to unlock the door, but to no purpose.
They then decided that she was trying to starve
herself to death, and a policeman was sent for
to force an entrance to the bedroom. Mrs. Runkel
had evidently heard thi plans of her nieces", and at
once made hasty preparations to end her life. She
robed herself in white and put on her head a whit,*

which she had taken to the room with her. Fold

A SAILOR SHOOTS HIMSELF.

CREW OF THE MAINE.
Nicholas Scalp, forty-seven years old, who is said
to have been a member of the crew cf the battle
ship Maine, which was h'own up In Havana Harbor,
committed suicide yesterday m rn'n?: by shooting
himself in the rljtln temple in a furnished room at
No. 237 Union-st. He had suffered from a broken

piece of ribbon.
On one occasion Scalp told his landlady that he
did not care to wear his Masonic pin in the street
for fear some Mason might ask him for assist

however, at times seemed to have large sums of
money In his possession. It is said that while

the applause was often half hearted and perfunc

John L. Shea, in calling the meeting to order, said
the Democrats of the county would give an excel

that there was abundant reason to be satisfied with
the campaign. Mr. Shea announced that Mr. Bryan
would present his case next week to the citizens of
Brooklyn, and introduced Harrington Putnam as
the chairman of the meeting. Mr. Putnam de
clared that the Government should have "no crown
colonies, no sham Imperialism." but should stand
fast by the principles on which it*had to this time
Mr. Stanchfleld complained that the newspapers
befogged their readers as to what was the para

Let us not, Inflated by success, mark the inaugu

sion of every principle dear to the liberty loving
man of to-day. Every man In favor of home rule
and opposed to foreign alliances can find support
In the Kansas City platform, and wherever we go
the Constitution of the United States must go with
the flag. The war in which we are engaged, this
war of conquest, of criminal aggression, has caused
many conservative people to believe that we have
drifted far away . r om our ancient moorings. It is
a war of the same character as that waged by
Austria, when she cut into shreds poor little Hun
gary, and the same as the war England Is engaeed
in to-day in the subjugation of the Boer Republic
I am rot here with the contention that In ■ day or
a year this Republic is to he converted Into an
empire. No one expects that during McKlnley's
second term we should be compelled to address him
as King William T. but h!s colonial policy marks a
new era In this Republic. Two years ago Senator
Der-ew gave an interview at Chicago. In which ho
said that for us to keen the Philippines would mean
a greatly Increased Army and a great Increase In

has pat the price of that pail 10 cents higher. As
the workingman goes along with his pal! you can
not always tell what is in it. but why do not the
Republicans look into the coal scuttle?
In the last four years fixed wages have remained
practically stationary all over the Union, and as
the. result of the trysts the neee3?arles of life have
gone up 25 10 30 per cent. I'm rot an empiric or a
quack, but my contention Is that If the laws to
day are not strong enough to reach the trusts
they can be made so und«r an honest Administra
tion. If the Democratic State ticket is elected
the anti-trust laws of the State shall and will be
enforced. The centralization of power at Albany
for the building up of a gigantic political machine
should be stopped.
It Is said of me that I'm not my own man nor
my own master. T wish to say I did not seek the

I'll be the Governor. Business will be transacted

OrPORES ORXAUEXTAL COURTYARDS.
APARTMENT HOUSE OWNER ATTACKS LAW TO
An application was made yesterday to Justice
Marean, of the Supreme Court, to continue a tem
porary injunction, restraining the Board of Public
Improvements and the Commissioners of Estimate
and Assessment appointed under It. from proceed
ing under Chapter 257, of the laws of 1599, to take
land In Clinton-aye. for ornamental courtyards.
There is provision In the act for the reserving of
twenty feet on each side of that part of Clinton
ave., between Wil : oughby and Gates ayes., beyond
the present line of the avenue. The land is to be
used for ornamental courtyards for the benefit and
Improvement of the avenue.
John C. Kluber. of No. 1,115 Lafayette-aye., ob
tained the preliminary Injunction In a proceeding
to vacate an order appointing Wlliiam E. Meyers.
James Hardie and Julius B. Davenport as Commis
sioners of Estimate and Assessment. It is said by
Mr. Kluber that the four blocks included In the
district to be improved contain residences, apart
ment houses, hotels and a church, and that many
of the houses are detached with courtyards of
twenty feet, for grass, shrubbery, statuary, etc..
with low. ornamental fences. Mr. Kluber Is in
formed by his counsel, John F. Clarke, that the law
is unconstltutloral. and fays the Board of Improve
ments has fixed the district of assessment on eighty
feet o* the premiers adjoining the land to be taken,
so that it falls fntirely on the land owners adjoin
ing the strips of twenty feet. Moreover, he says,
the act does not provide an ample and reasonably
prompt m^ans of condensation for the land.

FLAG 3 WAVED. FIRES BURNED AND GOV
ERNOR VOORHEES PRESIDED.
Elizabeth. Oct. 19 Congressman Fowler
received an ovation when he appeared at a Re
publican mass meeting In this city to-night. He
was escorted by all the Republican clubs in th«
town from the Mattana Club bouse to the Ly
ceum Theatre. The street was bright with fire
works and bonfires. The theatre was so crowded
}Jj at . hundreds had to go away disappointed. In
Hl.®.H I .®. b . xea of the theatre, which was decorated
with flags, were nearly all of the leading Repub
licans of the county. The McKinley and Roosevelt
veteran Legion, made up of soldiers of the Civil
war, were the Immediate escort to the Congress
man, and occupied seats on th« stage, as did the
Hough Riders and the Fowler Guards. Hundred.'!
flyman flags were waved by the audience, while
The Star Spangled Banner" was sung by the im
mense gathering, standing.
Governor Voorhees presided and made a brief and
effective speech. The Governor likened Bryan's
conjuring of evil to the land if the Republicans
are retained in power to the lamentations of a
modern Jeremiah. He referred to the momentous
events of the last four year*, and the great strides
the Nation ha 3 made in that time as a proof of
the wisdom of retaining McKinley at the head of
affairs and the Republican party in power.
Representative Fowler, on coming forward, was
greeted with a roar of cheers and applause that
lasted nearly five minutes, while scores of women
In the audience waved their handkerchiefs.
Mr. Fowler's speech was largely devoted to the
followers of Bryan on the financial question, and
In showing what prosperity the country has en
joyed under the McKinley Administration, which
he declared was wise, considerate and beneficent. He
severely arraigned Bryan for his calamity howling
In IS9S. which had been totally disproved by the
events of the last three years. The Congressman
said thnt Mr. Bryan. In his efforts to array one
class of citizens astalnst another In this country,
was preaching a most pernicious doctrine, and one
that merited severe condemnation, and should be
signally rebuked by the voters In November.
NEW-JERSEY POLITICAL NOTES.
William Jennings Bryan will, on October 25. be-
Iveen early candlelight and dark, devote one hour,
at Elizabeth. N. J., to Increasing the Republican
nrajority In Union County. Charles N. Codding,
chairman of the Union County Republican Com
mittee, said yesterday that while Mr. Bryan's con
tribution to Republican success was not absolutely
needed In Elizabeth "small favor 3 would be thank
fully received." As a wideawake Rfpuh.ican or
organizer and worker Mr. Codding occupies a seat
in the front row.
An effort Is being made to make the Reoubllcan
B&ass meeting to be held in the made at Jer
sey City, on Tuesday. October 23. a young men's
meeting, and it la expected that many first voters
will attend. Hugh Gordon Miter, of Virginia, him
self a young man. will be the principal speaker.
It has been remarked with much satisfaction Dy
many of the Republicans of Hudson that the party
ilcket there is largely made i i-- of young men, and
"good, clean, straightforward mci;. at that."
The last registry day in Jersey City and Ho
boken will be Tuesday, October 23. No Republican
can afford to forget either the date or to register.
Every Republican vote in Hudson County will be
needed In November, and if every Republican will
vote his party's ticket there Is good reason to be
lieve that the Vllth Congress District will be
represented by a Republican, and that a Republi
can State Senator will bo chosen.
There Is a Young Men's Renublican Club In New-
Brunswick which is entirely self-sustaining. It
was organized by Mr. Rastall. of the National
bank of New-Jersey. In that city, and numbers
iiO members. It pays all expenses for speakers at
•" jblic meetings, has not asked for a contribution
from any one. and is entirely free from the control
ot" the so-called bosses. The club has already
held several meetings. George Berdine. counsellor
at-law at New-Brunswick, was the principal
speaker at the opening meeting, and his speech. U
is needless to say. was an able and a pleasing one.
At another meetlne. ox-Assemblyman Hioks. of
Middlesex County, made an adde s whl h i= sp >k- n
of as an effort creditable alike to the Republican
party and to hlmaelf. While the club is doing all
that it can for the whole ticket, it is making

The Hudson County Republican Committee's
headquarters at No. 631 Pavor.ia-ave.. Jersey City,
are a veritable h!ve Of industry these days. Colonel
Samuel D. Dickinson. Hudson's member of the
State Committee; Edward W. Woolley. chairman of
the Republican County Committee: Frank Higglns
and other leading Republicans are making th* most
systematic and aggressive campaign that has ever
been made In the Vllth Congress District. Mr.
Biggins, who Is in charge of the headquarters, said
yesterday that every Republican In Hudson County
was taking an active and a personal interest in the
campaign; that there was no disaffection to inter
fere with honest. Intelligent work, and thai the
Republicans had practically agreed that whatever
differences there were as to the conduct o.' party
matters should be deferred for settlement until alter
the close of the campaign. There were differences,
of course; there always had been and there always
would be. but they had been relegated to the back
ground "for this occasion," and there was now be
ing made "a long pull, a strong pull and a pull all
As an evidence of the acti\-ity of the Hudson
County Republican Committee, it was learned yes
terday that 96,850 pieces of franked matter have
been addressed and mailed to the Democratic and
doubtful voters; 11° .000 earrpaign document* have
been distributed at meetings through the Republi
can club*. Of the a love 25.<W0 were cartoons pre
pared and printed at the expense of the committee.
Lithographs of MeKinley and Roosevelt to the
number of 12.340 have been circulated, 5.600 cam
paign buttons have been distributed and letters had
been sent to all of the Republican clubs in the
county calling their attention to the necessity of
having, all Republican voters registered, urging
them to hold meetings at lenst ence in each week
and tendering the assistance of the County Commit
tee. Sin-.ilar lettejs were sent to every member of
that committee, of whom there are I.STi) in all.

Women love easy, comfortable dress ; but they wouldn't " «•£ n tf * or

seventy-five distinctly different patterns are shown; each oae of paxucular beauty.
No such variety was ever sho>vn be. ore in Flannel Waists. Li.tie wonder that

bright, original styles that are as beautiful as their aristocratic cousins of siik.

NO KNOWLEDGE OF PLOT.
BUT "ANARCHIST QUEEN" IMrDS FRESCt
FOR KILLING KING HUMBERT.
Pa terse n. N. J.. Oct. 10 (Special).— The investi
gation Into the plot alleged to have been hatched
in this city to kill King Humbert of Italy was
resumed by Supreme Court Commissioner Trim
ble to-day. Edward J. McCabe. local manager
of the Postal Telegraph Company, who was
called about a week ago, was recalled to-day.
and showed the Commissioner a letter from
Superintendent Usher Instructing him to refuse
to produce any messages unless under a special
eubpeena giving the dates and descriptions of
them. Mr. Trimble asked Mr. McCabe if he ab
solutely refused to show the Italian messages
that he had received during the months of July
and August. Mr. McCabe replied that he would
be glad to help the Commissioner if he knew
what he wanted, but he cou'.d not throw his
office open to him and let him look through all
the messages of those months. The Commis
sioner said that he had no doubt that the Italian
Government would b • able la g?t what it wanted
from the telegraph office in Italy.
Ernestlna Cravello. Queen of the Anarchists,
as she has been called, -was closeted for two
hours with the Commissioner. She refused to
be sworn, saying she was an Anarch and did
not believe in the Bible. She would Ml th»
truth. Just the same, she remarked. She denied
knowledge of any plot, but she lauded the name
of Bresci. "He is a martyr to our cause." she
said. No one, she added, In Paterson knew any
thing of the assassination of the King until after
it had been done. Bre«ci simply told his friends
that he was going to Italy on business connected
with some private property. She also denied
that Francis Wiedmar. Editor of 'La Questione
Sociale." had fled through fear of the investiga
tion. His paper did not pay enough to keep
all those engaged on It, and Wiedmar had gone
to Allegheny. Perm.. where he is working in a
WTllam J. Orr. superintendent of the Hamil
ton and Booth silk mill, was calif d. and he iden
tified a photograph of Bresci taken in Milan,

tar," the Spanish Anarchist paper, was called,
and asked to give the names of all the mem
