spondence since ho wont away Nothing was
lone rosterdar toward finding tho body ex
I cept br a tow of tho neighbors who poked
round the grounds hunting for a grate and
finally came to tho conclusion that the body
must be under two and a halt tons of hay In
the little barn which belongs to Dunbar and
Is used br John Baodor a neighbor
A reporter for TUB SUN droo eight miles
from Nowark to tho Dunbar arm resterdar and
found several buggies standing In front of the
bouse and score of neighbors on the grounds
eanrasstng the latest phaso of tho story which
bore out their suspicions of the last three or
four weeks The place Is sadly neglected
The house Is a modern affair two and a hal
lories high with a wing of tho same height
B and a cellar under tho main part of tho struc
E tre I needs painting but otherwise I In
H fair condition
Inside everything Is In contusion Tables
are littered with books and papers which are
covered with dust cobwebs ate strung aorosa

It Is much soiled
used br the sick woman 010d
from long use The kitchen Is In a dirt con
dition and the utensils are scattered around
Without any attempt at order Not a scrap of
food was to bo soon anywhere It appears that
the old man did what cooking there was to do
and did i in I slovenly manner Tho cellar
contained an old and unused wire safe and
Borne odd articles of lumber and furniture
There was nothing in the house to Indicate
that a struggle had taken place thoro or that
foul play had boon done nor was there any
odor to boar out the suspicion voiced br tne
Belgnbora that the body was In the house
Too farm stands on the corner formed by
two roads crossing and adjoining I Is the old
graveyard at the Bide of the colonial church of

plre since before the British and Hosslan
hordes passed up the road to Mprlngfleld It

tho graveyard that Dunbar told THE BUN re
porter on Saturday night that he had burled
fits wife Apatlont search was made yester
day of the plato Indicated but not a blado ot
crass bad been disturbed and It wan evident
that tho Old man bad not designated the right
spot George Bunnell the vllinzo wheelwright I
and the sexton of the church led the reporter
to an old henhouse In the garden paten and I
removing a square board and an empty oil bar
rel I showed where the ground had been due up
tor I space ot three feet square lie said hat i
h 4 and others bad found the earth disturbed
there and had dun down three foot to hard
ground They concluded that JUunbnr had
tried to dig a grave there but had desisted
upon finding the Bull too hard
Uln Bunnell Lawyer Addlion Ely of lluthor
ford who was visiting relatives on an adjoin
ng pipee the Bu reporter nnd several neigh
bore looked carefully through Ibo tomato
patch tho corn Held and the whole garden
close to the house but could find no traces ot
the ground having bon recently disturbed
lurd rocent dlsturbod
Yet it will probably bo found this morning that
the body lies burlod In this garden patch just
where the tomato vines join too corn lor this Is
the spot indicated by th old man In a diagram
which he gave to Detective K ron yesterday
morning alter going to Elizabeth Detective
Reran said to a BUN reporter yotterdoy that ho
was satisfied that Dunbar was not Insane but
that his actions In the case of his wlfo were
those of a crazy man Dunbar told him yes
terday In the presence of Chiof Hopper thai his
I wlfo died a noon on June 30 and that ho laid
her out In tho dross given to her by her niece
Mrs Crockett of Aowark Ho sard that at dusk
be went out In the garden and began to die her
Brave but only partly finished It that night
I On July 1 he remained with his dOd all day
be said and at night worked at the narrow
crave in the garden until it was of the conven
tional depth garen n ho wrapped the remains
I In a rubber blanket and taking the wasted
form up In his arms carried It out
I and lowered it In the grave He planted
several lullgrown cornstalks and one or two
lomato vines ovor tho placo smoothing tho
soil carefully so that nobody could detect that
I had been disturbed Next morning be wenl
to New York he said nnd spent tbo day in
Central Park On tbo Fourth slont returned to
Newark and sat In Military lark nearly all
day returning to his home on tho farm at
night He stayed there till ho got In his bay
and oats and then went to Connecticut Ho
told Detective Keron that allot his neighbors
were down on him and that tho reason why he
did none not call in any friends was becuuso bo bad
noneYou have tho best friend in tn world an
owerod the detective
Bow so 1
You have plenty of money
Yen thats so but I was afraid to call In tn
undertaker for fear he would notify tho Cor
oner and make trouble Thoro would proba
bly lao mae investigation
Then you feared an Investigation re
marked Chief of Police Hopper who was not
ing down what tho old man said
Yes said Dunbar hesitatingly
Detective heron asked Dun bur why ho wrote
to him We urn all hero and well and that his
wlfo was well and happy The old man said
1 decolved you I meant that she was well 1
and happy In heaven but I convoyed the Im
pression that she was with me A law days ago
I felt that things wore coming to 1 cilsK and
that I must tell all und glvo UP Then I deter
mined on suicide but I meant to come and see
you first I did 1 was on my way to see yott
When be was asked I ho would go un to the
farm and show them the exact place of his
wlfon grave ho said For Gods sake do not
take me up thoro I never want to see the
place again This Chief Hopper thinks Is fair
ground for thu niesumptlon that the old man
mud away with his wife Ho thinks some
t thing more than a morbid fooling that makes
I him rear tno place and this opinion Is shared
by others who Pellove that a fearful crime will
b disclosed whou the grave la openod
i today and the corpse is 1 examined I Detective
f Keren referred to a draft for J1UOO which the
Old man showed him some months ago and

Mr Wade had sent it to blm to support his sick
wlfo Mr Charles Itunnoll saId yesterday that
lie saw the draft and thought It was a thou
sand dollars because the old man said so boJ
understood that It was sent because some

money and one of thorn said yesterday that

a few days before her disappearance ho saw
her sitting at a window with Dunbar combing

to think that she did not die a natural death
and that she was up and around Ibo house on
the morning of June 30 They missed her
alter that and when inquiries were made of
I Dunbar he said she bad gone to his niece in
Connecticut He told several of the neighbors
that Mr Bunnoll took her to the station

According to Dunbnrs story tho part taken
by the Cooks In the matter will bear investiga

ton would appear that they knew of MsInten
lion to go to the farm and commit suicide
ton the bottle of laudanum which be took
from Mrs Cooks medicine cheat The old
man tells In a simple manner that ha

Much dlsousslon has been provoked in naval
circle by Admiral Walkers recent condemna
tory report of patented anchors The patent
anchor invented by Ueut it O Dunn of the
Baltimore has warm champions among tbo
ofllf era and oqe of them discussed the matter
yesterday to follows matlr
To go bock to th oldfashioned anchor
would bo like changing our ships for ancient
Noahs arks Admiral Walkers squadron was
llttod < jut with the Williams patent anchor
which I understand failed tojrivo satisfaction
because It dragged taied Dunn anchor Is
being used on the Newark San Francisco
Concord and Bennlngton and I have yet to
learn anything against its credit One of tho
Dunn anchors held the Baltimore In an early
trial trip off the Delaware Breakwater earl
fortyeight hour In a gala that sent thirteen
ships ashore Tho oldfashioned anchor can
only catch with one fluke while the
patented ono bite with two and has just that
much more holding power a third at the least
Ills also saves tdns of weight from being cnr
nod by the ship Then too the more you
drag a patent anchor tho harder It will bite or
catch Hold of the bottom The oldfashioned
anchor was clumsy It caught on the
OUlht thl
forefoot and Interfered with iho sighting
ol tile forward guns Tho patent anchor
can be hoisted to the hawse bole and having
no stock It Is more easily handled I think
Admiral Walker made 100 sweeping a con
demnatlon for whllo the shapk ol the Wil
llama anchor lay ba dragged out from the
flukes by I freak of the pin and the snip go
adrift Snob an accident is I Impossible with
the Dram anchor where should the pin give
way tbe bead of tbs shank will be caught 110

Tha Attention Paid to 1 Abroad War
rant nad Experiment Her
WABttiNnTON Aug 17In view of the gain
recently effected nn tbo other side ot the A
lantlo In the operation of submarine boats
some surprise has beon expressed at the long
pause of our own inventors In this class of
naval construction Tho Qymnoto the Qou
bet and the Feral have all achieved at least a
promising decree of success and they have
come np since the Nonlonfoldt boats and
others of European celebrity The Qymnoto
tho Invention of a French officer depends lor
Is motive force upon electricity and from the
first was found to ba well under control but
the accumulators wore not quite satisfactory
for a time Of Into it Is said bettor results
have boon achieved The doubot named tor
its Inventor a wallknown French engineer
has had many successful trials at Cherbourg
It descends perpendicularly whereas the
Qymnoto dives at an angle A striking feat
ure of tho Ooubot Is tho facility with which I
can be steered in any direction Its inventor
proposed to tho French Minister of Marino a
regular passenger submarine service between
Door and Calais This It ned hardly be said
was declined a least a I Government under
taking ana perhaps was rather an advertising
dovlco but tho boat has made a reasonable
dcgioo of advance over older Fionob experi
ments in this direction
Spain however thinks that oho bus In El
Feral n better submarine boat than any other
of tho European powers Its motor like that
of Ibo Qyinnoto and the Goubot is electricity
I cnn bo submerged with all desired ease can
stay a long time under water has good facili
ties for supplying air to tho crow ba good
Boagoing qualities and while the appearance
of Its coursing tower above tho surface of tho
water would disclose Its approach to an enemy
in the day time Jot in an actual trial against
the war chip Colon it was found that unbar
cover uf tile night It could probably roach an
ouomy without being demoted At all event
the Spanish Government Is so much Impressed
with the possibilities of the 1 oral ai an aux
War harbor defense that It Is said to have do
olded to build a flotilla like it It Is understood
thattheso boats will be larger having accom
modations for 1 crew of over twenty man
But the nood or such a crow is not onvlou
since Ibo chief requirement Is the fastening ot
tho torpedo tn the hull of the enemy and the
lower the number of men the moro air and ma
chinery space will bo furnished
Whllo these advances have been made in
Franco and Spain submarine navigation In
this country appears to be about where It was
three years ago Perhaps less Is expected of
it by the present Navy Department than was
booed for by Its predecessor Secretary Whit
ney had only n minimum faith In the olilclonor
of ordinary torpedo boats like tho Jushlug and
its suicossor now authorized The electric
search light hits ho said made their useful
ness at night extremely doubtful Thoy are ot
value only upon occasions when they are in
visible to an enemy Such occasion are rare
lhe smoke of battle might conceal them and
for a nation having large Classen ct lighting
ships they might proie of consequence but
that Is not our situation at present The state
mont of the fact that they are of value only
upon rare and accidental occasion should rule
them out as u reliable weapon iorconut and
hatbor dofenco A nation cannot select the
nights when It will defend Its harbor lot
directly upon this declaration as to the ordi
nary torpedo boat he added that It Is
lonsonably certain that boats ontlielr
submerged except as to a turret small
and piotoeled against machinegun fire
are practicable It wad with this view that
toward the oiid of 1W7 Mr Whitney Invited
bids for the construction of a submarine tor
pedo boat A proposal was made by the Co
lutntilna Iron Works to produce an Improved
form of the Holland craft of ninety tons dis
placement and making a speed of nine knots
an hour when nearly or quite submerged It
was found however that the money WAS
needed Inr tho harbor defence vessel Besides
it was proposed to arm her with a nnoumntla
tube for throning shells filled with gun cotton
like the Vesuvius and this showed a consider
able reliance on her use ai a surface boat
which wan not the purpose aimed at The ob
loot In u submarine boat Is not to exchange
shots at or near the surface because then Us
destruction would be possible before she got
within range and Secretary Whitneys old ob
jections to torpedo boats would again apply
Whatever the cause no contract was made
by tbe Navy Department for a submarine boat
under its own call and that call has never
been repeated Yet there certainly seems
future enough In the submarine Idea to justify
its prosecution Uesldos the Inventions of
laral Ionhot ItamtiEOtn NnrdnnfAldt damn
bell and other In Jurope thore are the well
known devices of Tuck and Holland In this
country The performances of the Peace
maker in the Hudson Klvor ore well rorpem
bored Tho problem of submerging the boat
Keeping on an even keol furnishing sir for a
time to the crew and making n considerable
decree of progress wholly under water has
been practically solved br several or all ot
those inventions whether they ties electricity
steam or other motors The only question
that can bo raised is as to the ability of such a
boat to go below the surlao at so great a die
lance from the enemy as to bo unper
ceivcd by him and then to make Its
way under water until it has reached the
hull of the vessel aimed at and blown It
up by the use of somo high oxploMve The
difficulty experienced M I lu travelling such
n distance under water without coming to the
surface sufficiently to show at least the obser
vation tower This latter tn bo sure Is not an
easy mark to hit and It need not take long for
the boat to sink ng tin holow the surface But
with the old of guard boats and other devices
the enemy can probably protect himself If the
discovery is once made Still even when the
observation tower must be shown with the aid
of a dark night or a fog there might be some
chance of escaping detection so that a good
subsurface boat possessing seagoing quail
ties would furnish an auxiliary defence even
it not a defence of the first Importance

From ie London Globe
Like many other Insects house flies are sub
jeot to the attacks of a parasitic fungus which
destroys grout numbers of them especially to
ward the end of autumn We sometimes see
the cotpses of such as have met this fate glued
to the window panes In the attitude of life
with legs widely spread and wings raised as li
In preparation ion flight but with a white halo
on the glass all round them and with bodies
pale unhealthy looking and distended The
spores of the fungus whl < h are excessively
minute and lire uiexent lu the air are cnrilod

Unco hero Its hosts doom Is certain pays
Knt cle < tiif for It meets with sultubla nourish
ment In the shape of the fluids of the flys
body by aid of which It will speedily propagate
itself until It victim drained ot its flfos sup
port finally succumbs The threadlike tube
llrxt produces a series of detached rounded
bodies something like the cells ot the yeast
Plant Those cells which have an Indefinite
power of selfmultiplication are carried by the
blond to all parts of the body and thus the
dlsoaeo spreads They In their turn give rise
to n number of branching tubular threads
similar to those ot the earlier siam which In
process of time penetrate the skin Lich
thread which thus makes Us appearance out

spores like those t with which the series started
These ai o cast off with considerable force and
multitudes of them no doubt parish while
others are ultimately wafted against the bodies
ot other illeata deal destruction among them
as among their predecessors
Tbe particular species of fungus which makes
havoc with the house flies is called Km
pusa mnscre and is one of a group which are
distinguished by their habit of bubslstlng upon
jiving Insects The maturation of the fungus
Involves the death of the fly the fluids of whose
body aorvo ns food for the parasite Under Its
attack the fly becomes gradually feebler and
finally tulle unable to move and then the
viscid secretion from the pads on the foot hard

latest Information of lalertxt from All
MoNrniui Aug ILSir Joseph Hlckson
General Manager of the Grand Trunk Hallway
Company baa addressed < t letter to the press
regarding InterSlat Commerce law Con
cerning the complaint of the American rail
ways to Congress that it Is unfair to subject
them to a statute designed for tha better pro
tection of the public interests when their
Canadian rivals are not required to obey It
Sir Joseph says
It is truo that the American companies with
whom tho Canadian companies compete for
trafuo have complained aa stated but It Is a
fact which has been repeatedly pointed out
that their complaint Is not well founded and it
is no secret that their desire is to prevent the
Canadian companies carrying United States
truffle at all and not that thoy should be sub
ject in their truffle arrangements to the pro
visions nf the InterHtato Commerce act ot the
United States Congress
The Canadian companies from the date
when the Inteiatnto Commerce act came Into
effect have recognized that It was Incumbent
upon them in dealing with trafllo to or from
the States and Canada or trafflo passing
through Canada from ono State to another ol
the United States to observe the terms and
condflfons of the interState Commerce act
A moments reflection will show that with re
si ect to trafflo going from Canada lo the
States It must bo delivered br some company
which In ropeotof that trafllo Is subject to
the terms of the IntorStata Commerce net
and the Commissioner appointed under the
act can therefore deal with such company in
the United States if the Canadian company
should assume to Ignoro the terms of the not
In like manner raffle coming from the
Btntos must originate on some railway which
is subject to the conditions the InterHtate
Commerce act and can bo dealt with Then
with regard to traillc passing through Canada
from one State to another the net provides that
it there Is a departure from its terms the prop
erty handled can bo treated when it reaches
the United States frontier from Canada as an
importation and subjected to duties It Is ob
viously true that the terms ot the InterState
Commerce act do not apply to the local busi
ness of Canada but there Is no difference In
the position of Canada in this matter and the
State of New York for instance
The terms of the InterState Commerce act
do not apply to the business of the Now York
Central Railroad done within the State of Now
York any more titan they apply to the business
of the Canadian companies done within the
boundaries of Canada Alter a somewhat ex
touMvo experience I am prepared to assert
that the Canadian companies do not derive
from the operation of the InterState Com
merce act any advantage whatever over their
United States competitors
