Dlecueied In All Its Dears by a Hoelety
of Friend i
C The Need of Police Matrons was the sub
ject discussed the other night at a meeting of
the Friends Literary and Library Association
In the schoolroom at Butheriurd place and I
East Sixteenth street Papers were road by
Hrs Josephine Shaw Lowell and Dr Anno 8 I
DanleU in which police stations and visits by
the readers to themwere described
Both argued that police matrons aro very
much needed and tbe Police CommIssioners
were held to blame for not carrying Into effect
the law blch gIves them tho opportunity to
appoint matrons The Commissioners have
refused to appoint the matrons because there
Is no appropriation and because women who
are drunk and disorderly cannot be cored for I
by women such prisoners sometimes requir
log two or three man to lock them up
Dr Daniels declared that these were no
reasons at all There la no one a bad woman
so much fears and respects Dr Daniels said
as she does a good woman For a gentle wo
man she added the woret woman will become
docile Both eesayliits favored w1 bill now
pending In I the Legislature I making compulsory
tan oppuiauueufc ui uuuuu UJUHUUB uj SilO roo
lice tfioDwloo
The debate on the pai ers took a higher flight
than the appamtment of police matrons The
question true diHcuaead whether women who
old the care of police < matron could not bo
kept out of police stations Dr Daniels de
clared that Police Justices are too lenient with
women who un routulurs They aro often par
doned but Dr Daniels said such women should
ssldom If over be discharged A convicted
rounder ought to be sent to a Institution
where she could be kept uwny from the com
munity for the remainder her life The case
of a woman rounder who 01 had given birth to
four children alt of whom aro In prison wan
adduced as an argument against leniency It
was an Irlumont arlUlnt Daniels said which
could bo understood by taxpayers
Another toplo broached was tbat of the
presence of women In any court rom while u
woman was tbe defendant A story was told
by Mrs Russell of I Bhode Island lady whom
tim Judge requested to leave tbo court room
on account of the nature of the txstlmony
The lady refused t leave bacausu she could

listen to Hbo told tbe Judge afterward that
the testimony was not so very bad

Parnsll said he was rejoiced at the proof of
support everywhere accorded hIm This he
said showed his opponents tbat Irinhmen
would not allow them to degrade the pub
lic by permitting them to strike be
low the belt under the pretext of dealing with
Questions ol public moment I the difference
between the two factions was not fought out
upon dignified lines the blame would not fall
upon bis supporters
They would strain every point to atfoord
their opponents a fair bearing but I their op
ponents outraged the sense ot the people by
going outMde the limits of decency the people
would justly resent tbelr conduct
The party bad an enthusiastic reception on
arriving at Navan They drove through the
town receiving ovations everywhere The
houses were decorated with green bomths and
folAO streets were a number of triumphal
arches Mr Farnell addressed an Immense

ba foied
treachery and cowardice of the seceders by
resisting English Intimidation Thus they bad
given time to everything solid patriotic and

to see the truth and to rally to their support
Ho had never feared the result I he had
not a colleague loft in the committee room he
would still have t ome back to the Irish peo

In conclusion h expressed the hope tat his
opponents would take warning of tIat por

theui away Instead of opposing the rally to
his side let them free themsohos Irom the en

brotherinlaw Miss Ftirdy Is from New
Brunswick and for years has bopp a periodi
cal visitor al Mr Btowells home on Kent
street In this city A few weeks since when
Mr Stowells little daughter Mabrl was taken
ill Hiss Purdy came on to assist Mrs Stowsll
her sister In nursing the child
For two weeks and until the little one died
Miss 1urdy was so attentive to her that she
hardly slept at all She has never been very
strong and this ceaseless service at the bedside
of a dying child with all Its attending anxiety
and supplemented by the shook which
Its death brought naturally told on her health
and shi complained considerably On Monday
last Miss Furdy wont to Mr Btowells office In
Broad street to help him with some light work
She has bean subject to fainting spells and
fearing an attack In the office she decided to
go home early At 6 oclock therefore she I
started out for Kent street Before leaving
the ofllce she informed Mr Btowell that ehe
was feeling better and he felt no apprehension
ou her account
By walking slowly she ought to have arrived
at homo at GU oclock but whim Mr Stowell
reached there at 0 she had not yet appeared
Mr Btowell Instantly recalled that she wa
not well and when another half hour had gone
by fears that she had bean overcome by illness
in the street were entertained and a search
lor her began at a oclock
While the search was still In progress Miss
Fnrdy appealed at the kitchen door tine
glance was sufllcfant to convince Mr Btowell
that she wan very lit He face was pale and
there was a strange look In her errs To Mrs
Blow ells anxious riuary abe rnadd no reply at
all and she might have fallen had not her
sister minnnrtritl her
Hhe was uncouitolonn when she was disrobed
nnd she bas remained partly BO ever since
While lying thus prostrated she has been
They had ma in a cab They struck me
and stole my rings and money
To questions as to who struck her and took
her iewelery and money t > he line been unable
to glvo answers Sometimes she ha moaned
I could see the lights from the cab window
They got my rings but nothing else
When Miss Purdy arrived at home she bad
her giovos on but two gold rings which she
wore were missing and her pooketbook was
empty Just bow much money she might have
had in her possession is not known but Mr
Btowulls family conjectures that the amount
was small In her ravines Miss Purd1 said
They nurt toy bead nut there were no
visible evidences of any sorted assaultA largo
pin fastening her hat bad worked through her
hair and this It Is believed made a pressure
upon be bead and hurt her
Detectives Pllgerand Leahy have been work
lag on tho vase day and night and have about
come to the conclusion that Miss Purdys
statements are caused by delirium
They believe she was make with a nervous
spell In the street but they cannot very well
account for the loss of the rings
Ietectlvex say that friends saw Miss Fnrdy
in Hamilton avenue and In Chestnut avenue
above Kent street at 7 oclock on Monday1
evening anti they believe ehe wandered about
in her Illness not knowing where she was
going I
Jt was learned today Ihnt Miss Pnrdy was
gradually recovering strength She was
