Infatuated with hor. Ono day sho was
accosted on tho street by a man who
poke In broken English, nnd professed
his lovo for her, and said that ho was tho
writer of tho letter. Tho nnmo ho signed was
Christian Faber. Ho was evidently a Gorman.
Mrs. Lovln hurried homo, dogged by tho mnn.
At 'tho Madrid tho portor was compelled to
lam tho door In l'aber's faco to keep him from
entering tho home.
Attirthat Mill more lottors camo. whon
Hr. Winter, with his little child, romovod to
lUc'hflcld SprlngH In July, Mrs. Levin nnd hor
family wont to 1io witli him at hlscottago
there. Mr. Winter's child was taken sortously ill
and died. The funoral was on July 2. Tho baby
lay In lt coffin in tho front room of tho cottage
and tho forvlces wero about to bogln
when the door was burst open and Faber
rushed in. He had found out In some way tho
thereabouts ot Mis. Levin, and ho said that
he had come to man y her. He talkod In a loud
vokv ami waved his arms fiantlcallv. Ho snid
that she wits in I a os lth him and that he must
have lie.. Hun h 'w tho lady in thu back

and lilt until tho othor members
t.t tho familv wero able to overpower
tliomnn'ae und force him out of tho death
chamber into the stroot As ho lefttho houso
he oV"l that ho would kill Mr. winter at

,liticif thu lVuee nnd Fuborwas arrested
the next day. By that time, howovor. ho had
I ecoiue (.aimed, ii nd on his promlso to lenvo tho

turned lieioiibulted his lawyers, bmlth A Mar
tin of -111 llri,udwny, and they advised him to
take fteii-. to protect himself aud his sister-in-law.
Private dotoctivos wore put on i'nber's
trail, und Ho was subjected to nn ex
amination as to Ills sanity by Dr. Bond
and Or. Frank Ingram. These two physicians
made affidavit to the man's Insanity, ami a
commitment was signed by Judge Mc
Adam, soma time In the second week in
July. I aber was nut in Bloomingdalo As lum.
Dr.Xvon. tho medical superintendent, learned
that Faber had about $2.0iH) in the Williams
burgh Savings Bank. Mr. Winter sent u num
ber of specialists to examine Faber. The phy
sicians who looked into tho caso wore Urn.
Allan McLane Hamilton. Morton Orlnnoll, V.
C Dont Matthew 1). Field, Lyon. und Williams,
They all. Mr. Winter says, pronounced Fabor
to be chronically Insane, with a tondency to
, homicidal and suicidal mania.
One f the physicians In speaking to Fabor
asked him w ny ho did not leavo tne country,
aothat hewouldno longer be tempted to sea
Mrs. Levin. He replied that If ho could not
mam Mr. Levin he would just as soon livo in
Australia ai America. Ho was then nsked if
he would ically bo willing to go to Australia.
He (aid that lie would.
Arrangements were mado accordingly to put
the diameter of the earth between him and
Jlrt. Loin. He was discharged from the asy
lum " Into the care of friends." and the two do
tsetives took lum toHan Francisco and put him
on board a ship for Melbourne. His oxponseu
were all paid, nnd besides that he took his
own mono witli him which he hud drawn
from tho l-nn'c.
Mr. Vv inter suspected that Faber might re

Iroeenor Crune Convlnred That UU
Prisoner I Not Dnnham'a Murderer.
Goorgo W. Fuller, who ladotainod In the wit
ness room of tho Nowark Police Headquartors
as a last resort In tho Dunham murder caso,
passod tho day choorfutly yostordny. Whon n
ropoitor askod him whuthor ho had anything
to say ho laughod and renllod:
"Nothing excopt that thoy have got tho
wrong man."
Two or throo dotoctivos from Nownrk worn In
Brooklyn yesterday trying to break down tho
nllbl which Fuller established to tho satisfac
tion of l'roseoutor Ctnno whon ho was ex
amined before, nnd which ho ropoatod with
greater detail to BuporintendentBrowndurlne
tho four hours' inquisition on Wodnesday af
tornoon and ovonlng. Fuller's statemonts
mem to bo corroborated hy flvo or
six witnesses, but tho police suspect
that Rome of thoso men are shielding him be
cause tho dctectlvos represented at first that
he was suspected of crookedness In a horso
transaction. Thoy think theso wltnessos will
alter thi'lr story when they learn that hit is
wanted for Dunham's murdor. Nono of tho
men Interrogated had any apparent motive for
HlileMlnit Fuller. Besides. It is nsked why Ful
ler should havo boen joalous of Dunham to tho
point of homicide, when ho knew that Blnncho
('urrnn after leaving him had lived for live, or
six weeks with a Newark bnrkoopor. against
whom Fuller mndo no hostile domonstrntlon.
An attempt is being mado now to provo that
Fuller was a cowboy, familiar with firearms,
and this Is to offset his testimony heforo l'ros
t'Ctitor Crane that ho never carried a pistol.
Fuller's testimony covers olgbty-threo pages.
The Prosecutor does not now bellovo that Ful
lor Is tho murderor. ,. ....
Fuller's niiinit was put on tno blotter at
Tollco Headquarters lato on Wednesday night
nnd ngalnst It was tho word suspicion. '
Pattick Pholan. tho hostler who fought Dun
ham In tho barroom n few minutes boforo tho
killing nnd who was at first suspected, has
slipped out of sight. Ho did not como back or
send for his pny yesterdoy nnd n so.irch is
being mude for him. If ho is found ho will

Cm Xctv York Oat Itf-Beorsia for Hill,
With Ilardly a Second Choice.
Evan P. Howell of the Atlanta, Conjinifion ar
rived at the Fifth Avenue Hotel last night Ho
said that tho Georgia member of tho National
Democratic Cnmmltteo will cast his voto in
fuvor of this city as tho place for hold Ins tho
National Convention. Ho thought this city
stood a good chance of getting tho Convention,
but ho appreciated tho fact that tho Western
mon would opposo Now York ns usual. Ho
sntd that tlm twenty-five dolegatos Georgia
sendsto tho ConNontlon will go unlnstructed.
"They will vot" ho said, "with tho dele
gates from tho Northern Domocratlo States,
jiroldlng the representatives from thoso
Htatos do not cast their votos for Cleveland.
Georgia is u thoroughly autl-Clovoland State.
It cau't bo nnything else, because in the Stnto
there aro an.OOO Alllanco men. and every ono
of tliet-e men is bitterly opposed to Cleveland.
Tho Alliance ha elected flvo Congressmen,
nud its st re ngth and influence nro great enough
to swing the Mate, if the Democracy wishes
to cany Georgia. l'lo eland must bo set
nsldi'. Tho llrst choice of tho Georgians is
undoubtedly benatur Hill, who. If ho be nom
inated, will nrou be) nnd question a winning
candidate. Tho second choice of Georgia is
perhaps Senator Gorman. I doubt, however,
if tho people nf Georgia havo a second choice.
I believo their preference for Senator Hill is
too strong for thi-m to tnko into consideration
nny other candidate."
Lx-Conressmiin J. J. Richardson, tho mem
ber of tho Democratic National Committee
from Iowa, arrived in town on his way to at

paign. When this buslnoss was disposed of
Chairman l'ullcn brought up the nuostlon of

party to victory in three MiccosMvocnmpalgns.
His record is known throughout the land, and
ho has earnest friends and supporters in overy

nis JTrleada TJtterly at a Zm, After a.
Search of Tea Days, to Account for Ills
Disappearance, and No Clue to Ills
Movements Itas Been Discovered.
Ten days havo passod olnoe Edward do
Lima, the eldest sonot B. A. de Lima, loft his
homo at tho Hotel Langham In Fifth avonuo.
and not a word has boon heard from htm by
any ot his frlonds. no has disappeared com
pletely, leaving not a hint as to whoro ho
might have gone. Tho arrival of thoBramen
steamship Travo at Southampton without a
word of nows ot htm was a shock to tho young
man's frtonds. Thoy wore posltlvo that, fol
lowing his custom, he had gone to tho ship's
pier on tho morning of Jan. 5 to son frlonds
off and had boon Involuntarily carried off, and
would bo heard from tho instant a point was
touched whoro die could sond a cablo tolling of
Ms prodtcamont Even aftor tho Trave had
toachod Southampton and had sailed on again
a fow persons thought ho still might have
boen aboard of hor and a cablo might have
beon sent ashore and mtscnrrlod.
But tho last hopo ot his boiug aboard the
ship was dissipated yostordny whon the pilot
boat that took off tho Travo's pilot outside ot
Bandy Hook was heard from. Sho had been
off shoro for n woek. As soon as she camo in at
tho Hook telegraphic Inquiries that had boon
mado wore handed to the pilot. Ho had not
heard a word about any ono but tho Ustod pas
sengers on board tho steamship. It was con
sidered certain that if Mr. do Lima had been
carriod off on tho vossol ho would have sent
word of tho fact back to Now Yoik by the pilot
It was thought by some of Mb friends that if
ho was not carried off on the Travo lie might
havo beononsomootherstonmor, probablyono
bound for a South American port. Ho had
many friends tn BoutU America and might
havo had a friend going down thore. but thero
wns only ono boat which sailod for South
America tho day he disappeared. That was a
Clyde lino boat. Her passongcr list did not
bear tho name ot nny ono known to bo his
frlond. nnd at tho office It was snid that
not a thing had been heard of any ono being
carriod off Involuntarily, nor had nuy ono an
sv eriug young Mr. do Lima's description boen
n passenger or been soon on tho plor. They told
a reporter at the company's office yesterday
that tho pilot boat that took the pilot oft their
stu imshlp had boen heard from, and the pilot
hud no news. , ,
Tlieroaronowbuttwo conclusions possible
to bo arrived ut. One Is that tho young man
hus been foully doalt with and the other that
he has suffered from suddon and temporary
aborratlon ( f tho mind nnd has wondoicdoff.
That he has hcou foully dealt with seoms pie
postorous. Ho left his hotel at 10 o'clock in
the morning in broad dnyllght witli eight
hours moro of blond daylight boforo him. IIo
stopped to tall; with the clerk of the hotel a
moment before he wentout, and ho reraurkod
when lie wont out that bo was going to his
olliee to business. The oflioe is at OH William
street. It was his custom to walk downliftli
avonuo to Fiftieth stroct und tlirouch
J'lttieth to Sixth avenue, wheto ho took
tho elevated down town to Curtlnndt stroet.
und then to walk ucrnssto Liberty und William
streots. From the time ho went out of the
hotel door all trace of him was lost. Nobody
who knew him saw him utter that. He did not
go to tho ofilco. It lie was foully dealt with it
must have been in broad dav light and on somo
street that at that hour ot the morning is al
ways crowded with people. He had no mis
sion thut would take him in any unfrequented
part of town, or in any place whore a crime of
any description could be committed. Ho novpr
stopped in saloons. It was his custom to go
direct from his hotel to his place ot business,
i-.e er stopping on tho way. and thero was ab
solutely no reason why he should not havo
done so on that Tuesday morning.
He may have met with an accidont. havo
been knockod down anjd run over, or have been
hit hy bricks ortlmbor whllo walking under a
scaffold, or fnllen and Injured himself, but if
ho did tho nollco don't know it, nor is he in any
hospital. Lvory hospital in tho city hns boen
visited and no ono answering oven remotely
his description is a patient. The polico rec
ords from tho hour ho left the hotel to this mo
ment have beon scrutinized without result.
His mind must certainly have become sud
denly deranged nnd he has wondered off. But
thore Is absolutely no reason for this assump
tion, except that ho has mysteriously disap
peared. Ho liud not lioon ill. Thero uover
was a caso ot insanity in his family or amo'ig
his ancestors so far as is known.
Ho wus a young man of exemplary habits, not
given to any sort of vice, bo all bis friends say.
Ho had never shown uny trace of insanity or
even (lueernoss. Ho was n man of education
nnd rellnemcnt and of unusually strong mind,
his friends say. Ho was not ono of tho kind
who could bo led into doing anything lie did
not want to do. Ills family say thut when hu
left them Tuesday morning no ncted nnd
talked as ho always acted and talked. It was
Ills custom before ho went nway from the
hotel in the morning to talk n moment or so
with the clerk, and tho clerk snvs that ho
usually said just bofore ho left, as ho did that
morning, thut it wus time he started for tho
ofilce. The clerk detected nothing unusual in
It would not have takon mora than twenty
flvo minutos or half nn hour at the most for
him to havo gono from tho hotol to his office.
ir he lost his mind It must havo been within
this half hour, which is certainly remarkable
in view of his temperament and habits. If ho
has wandered off. wheto can he havo gone I It
seoms hardly possible that ho could still bo in
the city and unheaid of. If insane nnd wan
dering about New York, ho would surely havo
been picked up by the police. Tho fact of his
disappearance has boen printed in all tho
newspapers. together with partial descriptions
of Mm, und soma ono who would recognize
him from the description must havo seen film,
nnd would have reported It, Lvory place thut
ho was ever known to visit has been visited by
friends looking for him. Of course, ho muy
liavo left tho city by any one of the many rail
roads without being seen by any ono who
know him. That is probably what ho did.
Ho may only havo crossed tho river to Now
Jersey or to Brooklyn. If ho has done that he
should be found quickly.
Tho following is as perfect a description of
him und of his habits and tastes as can ho ob
tained. Unfortunately ho had not hud his pic
ture taken for several years, und there is no
good likeness of htm In exlstenco :
Twenty-three yeais of age, 5 feet n inohos
tall, slight liulld. weight about 120 pounds, full
ovBlfneo, very regular and well-proportioned
features, no beard or moustache largo brown
eyes, light brown hair, Dorfeot teeth, very
whlto and very regular. Ho wore, when he left
the hotol, a black cheviot suit with a sack coat,
a black scarf with a black sllk-covorod pin
and cuff buttons of tho same material, white
linen, a derby hat with a mourning band about
it, and luce shoes. He was regular in his hab
its, seldom wus out late at night, read a groat
deal, and enjoyed good books and was fond of
plcturos nnd works of art. Ha talked English.
French, and bpanlsh. He was born In this
country, and spoke English without foreign
accent. He wns a great traveller, and thor
oughly familiar with all the details Inoldent to
travelling. The only jewelry h wore was a
heavy gold Waltham watch.
Curiously enough, no general alarm has been
sent oat by the police ordoring a search for
the missing man. Mr. Ellas de Lima of the
firm of D. A. de Lima A Co. said yesterday that
ho had not thought this was necessary, be
cause if the man was out ot his mind he would
bo picked up by the police any way. He said
ho thought no would have an alarm sent out
to-day in the throe cities. The search, he said,
hnd beon from the beginning In competent
hands, and evorything possible that could bo
done had beon done to find tho young man. Ho
feltconfldontthat ho would be found ultimately.
The idea of foul play." he said. "Isgood
enough for a sensation for somo nowspnuers,
but It appears to mo to bo very foolish to think
that a strong, healthy young mnn could meet
with It In broad daylight In a great city llko
New York, with thousands of people with their
eyes and ours opon about Tho idea that
lie has been kidnapped and is held for
n ransom Is also foolish It seems to me.
Ho oertnlnly oould not be Induced to go
off with strangers, and I am very suro he had
no friends or acquaintances who would think
of such a thing, and, bosldes. If he had beon
kidnapped, his kidnappers would have been
heard from befoyo this. He had practically
no jewelry about him that would tempt a bad
man to injure or run away with him. He nover
wore a ring. His shirt studs, and scarf pin
and cuff buttons were ot bluok matorlsl and
inexpensive, for ho was in mourning for his
father. Thoonly othorartlcleof jptyolry that
lio had was his gold, watch and his chain,
which was ii veryslmple ono."
Mr. de Lima did not know anything about
tho watch excopt that It was a gold erne, with
Waltham movement. He gave It to the miss
ing inun some years ago. To-day ho will try
and find out tha number ot the oase and of
the works. They may lead to something.

Tho nowspnpors afford an Interesting study.' H
This afternoon all camo out In doop mourning '!
nnd annottnaod the two deaths in much the JM
bamu manner. The Globe says:
"It Is with tho deopost sorrow that we haro M
tn announce that his llojal Highness tho Duke ' B
of Clarence and Avondnlo died shortly after 0 ,'flBfl
o'clock this morning;" and Inanothoroolumn: vHHI
"Wo rosret to' nnnounco that Cardinal Man- cHJ
nlng pnssed away calmly soon after 8 o'oloer itVeVJ
this morning." -lVafl

TheSf. Janies'jGazeKdhasltthUB: "With pro- . IH
found regret wo havo to announoe that the HH
Duko of Clarence and Avondalo died at Ban- HH
drlnglum Houso nt 0:15 o'clock this morn- jfl
ing;" nnd "wo regret to announce that Oar- IflH
dlnnl Manning died at his rosidonoe, tho HH
Archbishop's houso. 'Westminster, at 8:20 9H
o'clock this morning." jHH
Tho othor nowspnpors mako about tho same iHH
distinction iu tho degrco of their regret, while HH
not ono can lind words enough to laud the tB
doad Prlnco or express its sympathy with jVH
his royal parents nnd grandparent or his JHHJ
prospoctivo bride. But it is not In tho nows- H
papers that ono gots tho opinion of the pooplo. HBl
und In low ot tho existing social conditions "HM
in England tho real opinion ot the people oon- Bfl
corning tho death of an holr presumptive to HH
the throno Is worth knowing. 9J
The first person to whom I mentioned the jHHj
doath of tho Princo this morning was a hotel H
waiter. " Wo can get along much better with- jH
out him." quoth tho waiter, "than we can BH
without Cardinal Manning." Tlio waiter was ...H
not a Catholic, either. Ho concluded: "It's TH
mo and tho Ukos of me that supports them e vAl
Princes." ?
Only a short time afterword a friend told jJLH
moot a scene he witnessed in an omnibus.
which may bo tcrmod tho vohlcle of the popu- ff
laco. In this omnibus a man who was reading Kl
a newspaper said to bis neighbor precisely (HI
what the waiter had Fuid that the death ot IB
the Cardinal was a greater loss than that ot !B
tho Prlnco. One man was highly incensed by Bl
tho remark and desirod to fight; but every IS
other person in tho vohlcle upheld the first fM
spokesman. SdH
By 11 o'clock, when the Prince's death was 91
generally known throughout central London. hRI
the callers at Marlborough House had become OH
very numerous. A small and very quiet crowd Oul
stood on tho pavemontopposite. Many women flil
wore in it Tho flag ovor the Marlborough sf21
Club, opposlto tho Prince's house, was flying tiln
at halt mast. So was that ot the Union- iRII
1st Club noxt door. All along Pall Mall ul
the clubs showed rows of drawn blinds. fu'm
Through the llttlo narrow outer doorway used -flfi
for foot passongors calling at the Prince's ytl
house thoro passed in and out a steady stream elM
of ladles and gentlemen in silks and furs, who iJH
had driven up In handsomo equipages to sign jjHI
their names in oondolonco in the visitors' rw9
book. I failed, howovor, to detect the tearful ESS
oyos and sorrowful facos that tho English re- Kfcl-
porters say wero to bo obsorvod on all sldos. B
In a talk that ono overheard in a crowd jSt
which stood watching outside of the house, as (5
if expecting that nl'rinco's death must be ao- .jjf
companlod by somo extraordinary manifests- i
tlon. thero scorned to bo little thought of AN KW,
bort Victor's princely position. That If he had 3k
lived years ho would havo beon a King seemed VK,
at tho tlmo to bo not so much in tholr thoughts jf
as that If ho had lived a fow months he would S
havo beon married to a lady whom tho JHJ
people havo como to regard with affoctlon. 9H
Kxpressionsof sympathy for hor wero to bo HJ
heard on all hnnds, and yet it was whispered IHH
beforo the Dtikn ot Clarence's illnoBs that the HH
I'rlncoss Mary was really in love with Prince flHJ
Ooorgo instead of his older brother, and that iwfl
her affection wus reciprocated, so that the M
young lady may bo (juoon of England yet. H
Ono houifiln all paits of London expressions al
of satisfaction that it Is Ooorgo rather than l
Albert I'jhv.inl who Is now in the line ot sue- ''al
cession to tho tluonn. 'nH
Nevertheless the death ot tho Duke of Clar- ' H
once and Avoiuiulo casts a gloom over Lon- H
don. The t-licuniFtanco that thoro Is to be no H
royal wedding next month moans alone great H
loss to tho tradosmon and through thorn to tho U
workingpeoplo. Thufactalsothntthocourtwlll
go Into mourning tor threo months will bring 9
about u dull Ijndon Houson, which moan Vi
further dearth of business la many trades. ' fh
It may not bo gonor.tlly remembered that M
Prlnco Albert Victor was a seven-months C5
child. Tho Prlnco was born In January, and W
tho joyful event, says the Annual Register 0i
ot tint year, wns aulto unoxpeotod. as Bra
tho accouchement of the Princoss was V-il
not anticipated until Murch. It wus Intended '(ffc
that the confinement of hor Koyal Highness 'jf'

I'.oyal Highness, however, had sufflclontly re- ffi
