The hearing In the application to Chancellor
XcOill for the Appointment of a guardian for
the two vounger children of Mr. Emma Dent
ley, the widow of Peter Rentier, a wealthy
lawyer, was continued In Chancery Chambers In
Jersey Cltr Yesterday afternoon. Mn, Ilentley
tat t a table by the tide of her counsel, ex-Gov.
Bedle. She U a handsome woman of fifty-five,
but does not look mora than thirty. She was at
tired In a neat-fHUng check suit, with white
turneiMown linen collar and white linen cuff.
Her daughter Emily, who haa been the principal
wltntM against her, tat on the opposite aide of
the room with her (trand mother and her aunt.
Eugenia, aged 13, and Parker, aged 0, for whom
the guardianship U asked, and Oeorge P. 'Whee
don, the young man who U tald to bo tha cause of
the trouble In the Bentley family, were also pres
ent. Eugenia remained near her slater, grand
mother, and aunt, and did not approach her
mother. Parker divided his attention between
his mother and Wheedon, and paid no atten
tion to his other relatlv es. Wheedon sat In the
rear of the room,
Kmtly Ilentley was called to tho stand first,
and in tha temporary absence of cx-Maynr Col
lins, counsel for the plaintiffs. Lawyer Harts
horns, a nephew of Mrs. Dentley, conducted the
examination of tha witness. Miss Ilentley Is
pretty, very stylish, and a young woman of very
aggressive character. She testified that on
three occasions when there was trouble In the
family Wheedon was Intoxicated. As she made
this statement (he looked over at Wheedon with
ft scornful glance.
"On the day that Wheedon was acquitted of
the acaault on my brother Peter," the witness
aid, "you could notlco in my mother's eye and
in the ton of her voloe that she was under the
Influence of liquor. My mother gave Oeorge
Wheedon the keys of my papa's cabinet where
he kept his cigars and whiskey. Dr. Hector at
tempted to get the keys from Wheedon, but he
was Intoxicated, and refused to give them up.
My mother and Oeorge Wheedon were very
familiar.
"What do yon mean by familiar?" asked
Chancellor McOlU.
"Well, after supper," answered Miss Dentley.
"she and Wheedon sat on the sofa, and he had
his arms around her. Later In the evening I
found her feeding him with popcorn. 8be was
putting It into his mouth. Again, when it was
nearly midnight, I saw her standing near the
register with her head on Wheedpn's shoulder
and his arm around her waist. I have seen
Oeorge Wheedon repeatedly kiss my mother.
Always when he came to the house she kissed
that thing, Wheedon."
As Miss Dentley said this she cast a look of
lnuns acorn at Wheedon, who had his eyes
fixed intently on her face.
" When did you again see your mother under
the Influence of liquor I" asked the lawyer.
" One night when Oeorge Wheedon was acting
In a play my mother said: 'Oh, don't he look
handsome 1 Don't be do it fine 1' When we
returned home they went into the library, and
aftr ;tnl I saw ray mother with her hair down
and her dress slipping from her. Bho evidently
was intoxicated.''
Ex-Oorernor Bedle objected to this kind of
testimony, but the Chancellor decided that it
was competent to show whether Mrs. Dentley
was a proper guardian for her children.
Th witness testified that the night after
Wheedon was acquitted of assault and battery
on her brother Peter, there was a Jollification at
the house. ,
I bad heard Wheedon say that If he was ac-
3ultted he would get drunk with a big I), ' I did,
ldn't I,' he asked my mother. At the same
time he offered my brother Dick some beer."
Did you ever see your mother familiar with
other men?" asked Mr. Hartshorne.
' Oh, yes," answered the witness. " When wo
were at Delmar. on the New Jersey coast, a Mr,
Frank Glaze of Newark used to visit her, and
he always brought a bottle of whiskey. They
would sit on the upper porch for hours."
"Any other men she was familiar with?"
asked the lawyer.
Yes; wnen we were at uarsnore my mother
met a young actor named Jack Palmer. We
used to drive out, and when we were returning
home my mother and Palmer occupied the back
seat and hugged and kissed each other."
At this Juncture the witness looked as If she
had forgotten something, and. turning to Chan
cellor MoGUl with a blush mantling her usually
palq face, remarked :
" I ought to say. Chancellor, that all tho men
my mother was familiar with paid me atten
tion." The witness then told of a Prof. Mendel of
Newton College who called on her mother fre
quently to consult her about Peter's education,
lie always sat on a sofa, close .to her mother,
and held her hand.
There was also a Mr. Forman of Asburr Park,
who took her mother to the theatre and bought
her candy.
1 protest!" exclaimed ex -Gov. Bedle Indig
nantly, "to the Introduction of Mr. forman s
name In this case. I know Mr. Forman, and he
Is a respectable man I"
The witness was then cross-examined by ex
Gov. Bedle. He asked her what she meant by
Introducing Mr. Forman's name.
" I only told what occurred," she answered,
"nothing more and nothing less."
"You said," asked the Governor, "that
Wheedon, Parker, Olaxe, and the others who
visited your mother first paid attention to you ?"
" Yes, sir."
" Did Wheedon come to see you T"
"He did, but I soon showed him that I dldnt
want him and told him so. He called on me,
and I told the servant to say that I was out, sick,
dtad, or anything."
" Your mother doesn't get along with Dr. Hec
tor, your nance ?"
"No, sir."
" What does Mr, Wheedon do T"
"I understand that he used to measure out rib
bon i in a New York dry goods store."
As the witness said this she looked down at
Wheedon with a scornful glance and everybody
laughed.
" Where did your mother meet Olaxe ?"
"At lUlmar.''
"Did you see him put his arms around your
mother f"
"I didn't say so. I said that be and my
mother sat on the porch together and drank
whisker, Bometlmea ther drank that green
stuff called crime de menthe."
"When Prof, Mendel held your mother's hand,
did It displease you 7"
"I didn't think It was proper. I didn't ad
mire him for holding my mother's band before
me."
, " Why did he hold her hand ?"
k " For amusemenul suppose."
" What did Jack Palmer do J What Is your
complaint against him 7"
"I told you already," exclaimed the witness,
with some display of temper. "He had given a
performance and we came back to the hotel.
Mamma wouldn't let me sit on the back seat of
the carriage, but Insisted on sitting there her
self with Palmer. It was a two-mile ride."
"What did you see J"
''I saw mamma leaning back In Jack'rarms.
His arms were around ber waist."
" Did you say anything to them J"
" No; it wouldn't have made any difference."
iov. iitxlle tried to draw from the witness an
admission that the servants left the house be
cause of her temper,
" I have a pretty high temper," she said, "but
that was not the reason tha servants left."
As she said this she cast a beaming stnlls on
her affianced, young Dr. Hector, and the Doctor
smiled back.
"Is It not true," asked Got. Bedle, "that the
principal reason for your dislike of Mr. Whee
dun U the fact that he is engaged to your
mother J"
"It U," answered the witness, snspplshly,
e didn't want that fellow for a stepfather,
and we cried and begged mamma not to marry
him.
I'eter Bentley, the widow's eldest son: Eu
Fenla,the 13-) ear-old girl, and Warren Dixon,
I Jlrs. Bentley's son-in-law, gave testimony, but
no new farts were elicited.
V lien tho plaintiff rested ex-Oov, Bedle moved
to dismiss the application on the ground that
ro evidence had been produced to show that
Jim. Bentley was not a proper person to take
care of her children.
Ihanccllor MtUtll suggested that some ex
planation ought to be made of the reported en
f 'Ktinent of Mrs. Bentley and Wheedon. Mrs.
Bentley took the stand and denied all the alle
gations that had been made by her children,
he Mild that the reported engagement between
binwlf and Wheedon was only a Joke. The
case uiu u continued when it suits the con
venient e of the lawyers.

cratic organization and has never had any sym
pathy with the kickers. He served in the As

mentioned year was the Democratic leader on
the floor. lie haa been a lawyer for the last ten
years. He Is still a .young man, having been

Although there had been a lively scramble for
the place by fifty candidates, the contest was
JAMES r. QUIOLaT.
quickly settled when Mayor Schleren, Comp
troller Corwln, and City Auditor Wober, the ap
pointing commission, got together yesterday.
Mayor Schleren nominated Lawyer D. O. liar
rlman. President of the Young Itepubllcan Club,
but when Comptroller Corwln named Mr,
qulgley. the Mayor withdrew the name of Mr.
Harriman and Mr. Qulgley was unanimously
chosen.
Mayor Schleren said: "This being strictly a
party nomination, I desire to be put on record
as voting for a Basra bllcan: but I desire una
nimity when posslblf In these affairs, and I un
derstand Mr. Qulgley to be a fairly good man;
so. In order to show my. good will In my unfor
tunate position, I shall move to make it unan
mous." Tho Com ptroller and Auditor took exception to
the Mayor's remarks. The former said :" I ob
ject to the Major's statement that this is a party
selection. e are here as a Commission, ap
pointed. I suppose, by the Legislature, and I, for
one, select Mr. Qulgley because I believe htm to
be a suitable man for the position, and not for
party or partisan reasons."
Mr. Qulgley's appointment was the result of a
compromise. The Comptroller and Auditor were
unable to agree on the selection of either John
A. Quintan! or James Moffntt.

It looked llko moving day at the Moslem
stronghold, 30 East Twenty-third street, yester
day afternoon. Muhammed Alexander Russell
Webb sat in the midst of his possessions, which
had been piled up ready to be removed. A new
piece of ground glass In the door replaced tho
pano that bad been shattered by Mr. Webb's
umbrella when he broke Into the premises on
Monday night, and Mrs. Keep's painted warning
to Intruders had been carefully scrubbed off the
panel.
"Some of these things will bo taken to my
house and some to Mr. Lewis's," said Mr. Webb.
"We shall not open any new offices before fall,
but will retain possession of those rooms until
the expiration of our lease, on Aug 1. Within
the last three days I have received advices from
Abdulla Arab that he will now be able to carry
out bis part of our contract, through contribu
tions which he has secured from the Nizam of
Hyderabad and his Prim Minister. I expect to

Keep still retains possession of property belong
ing to the Mortem ll'ortd Company and to the
American Moslem Brotherhood. If it Is not re
turned to-day I shall tako legal measures to re
cover It, and nave so notified Mrs. Keep."
Sir. Webb called a special meeting of the
American Moslem Brotherhood, to be held In
the evening. Mrs. Keep, who was Secretary of
the society, was entitled, but did not rospond.
In opening the meeting Mr. Webb referred to
Mrs. Keep's charges against him, and said:
"While the affairs of tho.Vatem H'orW Com
pany and those of the American Propaganda
are entirely separate from this association, I
will say that I am perfectly willing to have my
business affairs investigated by the brotherhood,
and If you will appoint a committee for the pur
pose I will freely give them all the Information
desired, and will place my accounts and papers
at their disposal.''
Nobody wanted a committee appointed, and a
vote of confidence In Mr. Webb was passed.
Charges were then made against Mrs. Keep, and
the following resolution w as adopted :
WKirtat. Mrs. Nafaesa X. T. Keep, Secretary of this
Brolhernood and nominal editor or the loiv y jJdn,

St. Joint's, N. F., July" 34,-The steamer
Miranda, carrying the Cook Arctic excursion to
Greenland, consisting of fifty-four persona, pro
fessors, scientific men, university students, and
others, which left here on Sunday, July 18, re
turned this mnralni, itUaM li..l- .n1IMbt
with an Iceberg at the entrance to the Straits of
Belle Isle.
The accident occurred during a thick fog at 8
o'clock on Tuesday morning last when the ship
was about eight miles north of Belle Isle. Tho
ship was going at full speed. No danger was
anticipated when suddenly a huge Iceberg was
sighted by theseamenon watch. The alarm was
Immediately given. Engines were reversed and
the speed of the ship was partly checked Just as
she struck the Iceberg. She struck with her
bow, and the force of tho collision drove in three
plates on her starboard bow, destroyed nbout
twenty feet of her di-ck rail, and completely
smashed the hawse pipe, rendering the star
board anchor useless.
The Captain believed that It was not safo to
venture further north with only one anchor, and
decided to return here and hare the damages to
th ship repaired. The managers of the expedi
tion assented, so the ship ran to Cape Charles
Harbor, near Battle Harbor, Labrador coast,
where temporary repairs were made. Plates
wero riveted on over the aperture, and the In
side timbers were strengthened. The ship was
stove throo feet below deck, considerably above
the water line. There was no damage below the
line, and the ship made no water.
Nearly all on board decided that tho accident
should not change their determination to reach
Greenland, where the ship will proceed directly
as soon as she starts again, tho preliminary
cruise along the Labrador coast being aban
doned. There wa. an exciting scene aboard tho ship
when she hit the Iceberg. Some of the passen
gers were breakfasting, others Mere in bed,
whiles few were on deck. In a few seconds
after the collision the decks were crowded with
the passengers, who feared the ship was about
to founder. Some of them ran for the boats, and
began cutting the lashings, getting ready to
launch the boats. The few who took the situa
tion calmly soon managed to pacify their excited
fellow passengers, and assured them there was
absolutely no danger. The passengers are all In
good health now and little the worse for their
exciting experience.
When the ship reached Cape Charles she
landed the party from the University of Penn
sylvania, nnder Prof. Charles Ulte,wbo Intend
exploring in Inner Labrador; also a party of
Yale students, who Intend to spend a couple of
months bunting, and another party who will
go some 300 miles north by mall steamer to
mint iart
The party from the University of Pennsylva
nia which went ashore at Cape Charles Included
Prof. Charles E. Hlte. U. Bucknell, George M.
Coates, and Oeorge II. Perkins. The second
party consisted of Itobert D. Perry, Phllllpston,
Mass.; William Bryce, New York; W. A. Reeve,
Patchogue; Charles P. Llnrawraven. The Yale
party Included W. 8. Root of Cleveland and S.
O. Tenneyof Wllllamstown, Mass. The parties
will return at different times by the mall steam
ers or on fishing vessels. Capt. Farrell reports
that they encountered unusually large quanti
ties of Ice on their brief trip north.
Later. A surveyor to-day examined the
steamer Miranda and found her perfectly sound,
except at tho bow, where he ordered three
platen removed and new ones substituted. A
new hawseplpe was also ordered put In. When
these repairs are made tho ship will bo able to
resume her voyage. The Miranda, It Is ex
pected, will be able to leave here on Saturday.
She will not attempt to reach the northern part
of the Greenland coast, but will confine her trip
to the southern portion, probably making Disco
the terminus, so as to reach here again early In
September. Only four of the party say tney
will turn back, and it la expected that they will
be persuaded to remain.
Dr. Cook's enterprise Is the first of the sort
ever undertaken, and though It has had a se
rious setback it may yet bo very successful.
Ever since he returned from North Greenland,
where he served on the Peary expedition. Dr.
Cook has maintained what Dr. Havre, Lord
Dufferin. and others had said before him, that
pleasure trips to Greenland waters are perfectly
feasible, and that no scenery In any part of. the
world is better worth visiting, lie decided to
take a party north this season If a sufficient
number expressed a desire to go to warrant him
him in chartering a steamer. If he was able to
make any money out of the trip, he proposed to
apply It toward the expenses of the expedition
which he hopes to lead Into Antarctic waters
next year.
Fifty people or more paid tiOO apiece, and
this placed the finances of the expedition on a
safe basla. Not all of the party, however. In
tended to go to North Oreenland. Borne of
them Improved this opportunity to visit Labra
dor for purposes of research or hunting. Others
purposespendlngashort time In South Green
land, and the vessel is to pick them up when re
turning south again. Prof. Wright of Oberlln
expects to spend the time studying the glaciers
of thegreat Umcnak fiord.
Dr. Cook has worked very hanl to secure the
comfort of his party and the success of his ex
pedition. Everybody will be sorry to hear of
his mishap, but It is by no means Irreparable.
There Is time enough yet for him to carry out a
large part of his programme, but he cannot
now go so far north as he had expeoted.

Ann Toy died recently In Brooklyn, leaving an
estate valued at $2,000. By her will $1,000 was
left to her brother, Bartholomew McOarry, and
the remainder to other relatives. Soon after
Mrs. Toy's death McOarry declared that there
was no will In existence, and was appointed ad
ministrator of the estate. The will turned up,
and yesterday there was a hearing before Burro-
f:ato Abbott on the application of McOarry to
tave It rejected.
State Senator Daniel Bradley, of the Lrxow
committee, was the principal witness. He said:
" I drew up the will for Ann Toy when she thought
she was dying. When she recovered she asked
me to destroy the will. I thought I had done so,
but found It recently among my papers. 1 have

Senator Gorman is Invariably fixed upon by
visitors to th upper House as the handsomest
man In that body. The majority of Senators
are men whose early lives have told seriously
upon their constitutions nr whose careers have
been given over to easy living, excessive eating
and drinking, and its attendant evils, until they
have become practically shapeless. A large
portion of them are pudgy In build and they
are often bulky and unwieldy. In strong
contrast are the tall, stoop-shouldered and
emaciated figures, such as Peffer and Mcpher
son. Ktcn Voorhecs, who was once a hand
somo and athletic six-footer, Is now weighted
with fat and exceedingly awkward In his
gestures. Among them Oorman looks like
a thoroughbred racer contrasted with a lot of
cart horses. He Is a little above the medium
height, with broad shoulders, nn unusually
small wnlst, straight legs and stnsll hunda and

a strikingly picturesque figure in a liody nf men

suits low In tho neck nnd short In the
sleeves In spite of the Bradley pro
tests. With these abbreviated garments, how
ever, they are not permitted to liatho In Mr,
Bradley's section of the ooeati, and so they go
further along to Ocean Grove. This takes
money out of the Bradley exchequer, and hence,
the subject Is one that Is very close to Mr. Brad
ley's heart. It is while the Founder haa been
struggling with the bathing problem that the
bicycle girls have set him by the ears. Three
trlrK erh wearing a mother huhbnrd gown,
while riding down the board walk a few days
ago, went by Mr. Bradley with their noses in
t he air and every sign of rebellion In their faces.
The wind was blowing briskly and tho
mother hubbards were of flimsy material.
The Founder was shocked, and he went Into the
Seneral subject of bicycle costumes with the
enrolls. A lot nf feminine riders now wear
bloomers, and a few nf the moroenturcsome
cut their bloomers so taut that they are prac
tically knee breeches. The girls wear heavy
stockings, through which the mosquitoes find ft
difficult to bite, and patent leather slippers.
They come from all tho neighboring towns In
Jersey, and It Is generally believed that the
Founder's efforts with the bicycle riders will bo
even less successful than his efforts with the
bathing girls.
Taral's private Russian bath Is the envy of all
the other Jockeys In the country. The money
which tho " Dutchman," as he Is familiarly and
affectionately called, makes in the saddle had
been religiously preserved In the past eight
years, so that at the present time America's
crack Jockey has a very handsome fortune to
his credit. A portion of It is Invested in a beau
tiful house up in Harlem, in which Taral has
built a Russian bath and a small gymnasium,
where he trains off bis weight before going
to the track. He can regulate the heat
and steam to tho exact conditions that
suit him. and often takes down his weight by
two short baths Instead of a long and exhaust
ing one. He will take an hour of steam reduc
tion at 10 o'clock at night, and then rise in the
morning at 0 or 7 and knock off another pound
or two of weight before going to the track. Of
the many jockeys who have had successful
careers on the turf. Taral is about the only one
who has never dissipated even to the slightest
extent, and ho has saved 00 per cent, of his earn
ings almost from his first successful mount.
Tho Introduction of Wall street methods Into
tho circles of dramatic authorship In England is
discussed with great gravity by some of the Bri
tish essayists. Mr. Frohman has returned from
one of his customary European trips, and this
year he haa developed his scheme of speculating
In future to a point much farther advanced
than ever before. When we arrived In Iindon
he had already secured by cable the successes
which had been running during the winter,
and be found that most of the es
tablished dramatic authors, both in Eng
land and France, were busily engaged on
e lays for next season. He purcnar! the right
produce three plays In America, if he saw tit,
after they had been finished and produced In
London. At least one English manager has fol
lowed Mr. Frohman's plan, and purchased the
English rights lo an American play now In
course of production here. In time they may
list these plays nn the Stock Exchango and deal
In the future nf tho drama Just as they do in
the futures of grain.
Zimmerman, the pride of American wheel,
men, defeated the French champion Medlnger
In a fashion that might almost be called vicious.
He now has only the second-rate Frenchmen to
meet, and has announced that he proposes to
beat them out as completely as he can. His de
fiant statement concerning Harris was some
thing of a surprise to wheelmen here, as Harris
was generally supised to be the fastest man In
Great Britain, and It was supposed that bo
would give Zimmerman a tussle. Zimmer
man Is still Indignant over the way ho was
treated by the racing authorities In England,
and he has a grudge of no mean propor
tions against French racing men for a
series of slights which he found It difficult to
accept In a tranquil spirit. Ho was never In bet
ter form than at the present time. In this coun
try a great deal of Interest Is displayed In Ti
tus's promise to break the bicycle record for an
hour's run, which he Is exteled to attempt In
the course of a few days in the West. He as
sert positively that he will be able to do more
than twenty-seven miles In the stipulated hour.
Thlt Is the speed of a railroad train moving at a

A gentleman who has Just returned from Eu
rope ssld yesterday that he hail been very much
amused at Corbett's denunciation of pugilism
while in London. "Professional fighters," he
said, "occupy altogether a different position in
London from that which they assume here. We
lionize a pugilist In this country, and he goes
around with men who are mora or less prom
inent In the professions nr in business life. A
pugilist Is looked upon as a hero with whom any
club man of sporting proclivities can dine or
sup. In England, iiuwuier. the swells, as
they are termud, never think nf making a
pergonal friend of a pugilist. They would expect
a fighter to be chummy with their coachmen,
but not to presume Um an equal footing with
themselves. At some nf the sporting clubs the
flghlers naturally drift In wltn the porter and
waiters, and they are tery respectful and sub
servient to the men In evening drest who iwe
as their patrons. Corbett, wholsamanof quirk
Jierceptlons. was not quite prepared furthedif
erent social imsltlon In which he found himself
In England from that which he iHcupled in
America, but it did not lake him long to decide !
that he went to l-ondon an actor and not a a
fighter. Ha took this xlllon early on his
arrival, and he never departed from It. The
English fighters when they encountered Corbett
after the theatre alwaa found him In evening
dress and in company with some well-known
actor, The pugilist made It a inlnt to dine at
the restaurants moat generally frequented by
ladle. and he was alwavs extremely eager to get
into the theatrical ilulw. Corbett. you know,
was alwav a a student of manners and a man of
great social ambitions, and very anilou to suc
ceed aa an actor. There Is little doubt that the
stage Is nearer to his heart than pugilism, but
the commercial instinct Is ao well developed
that he realize that his pugilistic reputation is
the strongest possible factor in his success nn
the stage. He Is a very remarkable figure In
pugilism any way that you take him."
Such scenes as have been described at great
length at the iollce trials recall the condition of
New York streets a few years ago to the rrsl.
dents of this town. There are now no streets
where women loiter on the doorsteps, lean out
of the windows and accost men In the street, as
they formerly did In certain districts of New
York. The scenes st one time were so familiar
and tha offence so flagrant and aggressive
that sightseers from out of town were id.
way taken to see what was a unique
exhibition of New York life. The women
were frequently arrested by the police and
regularly discharged by the police Justice,
who were generally accused of being rather near
to the god of mammon in the transactions.
There w as a long crusade instigated by Inspec
tor Byrnes, and the women were finally driven
from the streets of this town, except la a guer
rilla warfare, such as Mrs. Thuruw's, which was
kept up on the old battle grounds. This reform,
by th way, was accomplished before Dr. Park
hurst began hi remarkable public career.

Left Behind on Northwest rlpltakericea,
Lo.tnow, Jnly 3.-The StamUml prints a let
ter from Carl Sle-crs, in which the writer says
he hss received advices from Norway leaving
no doubt that the Wellman Arctic expedition
Is lost.
The same opinion Is expressed by sailors who
have Just returned from the Spltzbergrn seas
and by Mr. Flclden, who accompanied the
Nare expedition In 18T.V
Tho PttU .liiM ''nude has also received advices
confirming the general belief that tha members
of the expedition have perished.
Arctic sailors report that the flow of pack Ice
In the Arctic seas this summer has been so
plentiful nnd dense that no vessel could live
after being caught In It. They are unanl
mously of tho opinion that tho Ragnrald Jarl
has been crushed In the Ice and bcllove that the
chance of any mcmlwr of th expedition liav lug
liccn saved li very remote. Even If lliey man
aged to get on an Ice lloe they would lm In
a dangerous position and nut likely to survive
long.
Mr. Flclden, the owner of tho yacht Saldc, a
short time ago received news that Prof, Oyen,
the geologist who accompanied tho Wellman
expedition, was in distress. This news waa con
vejed to him by Capt. Johannscn nf tho sloop
Anno. Mr. Flclden ordered the Salde to Dane's
Island, where she arrived the following day.
0en's dog piloted tho Salde's party to the Pro
fessor's quarters, where he was found In bed In
an almost dying rendition. Ho had given up all
hope of seeing a human face again.
LiKin ft table In the Professor's quarters was
found a letter containing bitter reproaches
against Wellman. whom ho accused of having
left him In the lurch. Wellman, according to
Prof. Oyen, promised that a man should stay
w Ith him and share his frightful solitude. But
It appears that at the last moment Wellman de
rided that n man could not be spared, and so the
Professor had to be content with the company
of his faithful dog.
The Salde also reported that Prof. Oren was
so badly provisioned when found that his early
death was a matter nf certainty. But In spits
of bis sufferings and the certainty that death
was hovering over him, the Professor refused
to be taken off Dane's Island, Insisting upon re
maining there, faithful to his trust, even though
death were the result of his continuing at his
post of Arctic solitude.
The Salde. however, left a quantity of pro
visions and medklnes with the Professor.
Flelden was the naturalist of the Nares expe
dition of 1H73. Ho was aboard the Salde when
she went tn Dano's Island. The Salde Is now at
Granton. Flelden writes that there are reasons
tor fearing that tne Ragnvald Jarl Is beset with
ice, or that she has already come to grief,
though that need not Involve the loss of the ex
tilnifra. Ha atvtsea Wpllman'M frlpnris fi iunri
supplies via Tromao to Dane's island, where
they will arrive In September.
Chicago. July 34,-Frlcnds of Walter Well
man, while somewhat exercised, are not unduly
alarmed over the reports from Norway, A gen
tleman Interested In tho expedition said to-day:
"When we last heard from Mr. Wellman ho
had left Tromsoe on a w halcr and the letter was
sent bark nn a fishing smack which tho expedi
tion sighted when a few da s out on the voyage
to Spitsbergen.
"In that letter ho said we need not expect to
hear from him again until Uie latter part of
July or tho first part of August. Until that
time there is no real occasion for worry, espe
cially In view nf the vagueness of the reports
Unit tho expedition has been lost."
There is no proof whatever In the above
despatch that tne Wellman expedition is lost.
It Is not even evident that the vessel has been
seriously delayed by pack Ice, fnr It was not
expected that she would bo heard from till late
this month or early In August; and that she has
been crushed in the pack ice is an lnferenco not
warranted by any of the statements in this
despatch.
Wellman's vessel, according to the plans he
announced here, was to take his party to the
edge of the solid ice, where sledges and supplies
were to be landed. The party was then to start
on Its ice Journey toward the north, while the
vessel returned to the south. At a time agreed
upon the vessel was to go north again to the Ice
edge, and cruise within certain limits along the
edgoof the Ice until the return of the sledge
party, or until hope of Its return was abandoned.
The vessel may nave been caught In the pack
Ice, but It does not nccensarily follow that she
has been crushed, for other vessels In tho same
dilemma have many times escaped. In fact, not
a few vessels have escaped whoe position pre
sumably was far more hazardous than that of
the Hagnvald Jarl; for they Mere In danger of
being carried to the north to Inevitable destruc
tion, while In tho region entered by Wellman's
vessel the oceanic surface movement Is Invari
ably to the south, and If the vessel Is. tot crushed
sh will certainly reach the o;en sea again.
The fact that Prof. Oyen determined to re
main at Dane's Island, northwest bpltzbergen,
and that he was permitted to do so, shows that
at the time the yacht Salde left that point no
serious fears were entertained of the loss of the
expedition. The anxiety now expressed Is pure
ly conjectural. It is too early )et to bo serious
ly alarmed for the safety of the party.

Michael Sherlock la Court for the WclU
known JLcbok Bobbcrlca,
Pitts ri eld, Mass., July 31. Michael Sherlock,
the "gentleman burglar," waa placed on trial In
the Superior Court this morning on an Indict
ment charging him with breaking and entering
the house of the Ilev. William Grosvenor In
Lenox on the night of Nov. 17,1803. The gen
eral Interest felt In the case was shown by the
large attendance, many Lennx people lielng pre,
cut. Sherlock was defended by a G reat Barring
ton lawyer.
Mr. Grosvenor testified to the facts of the bur
glary, and Identltled three gold watches shown
In court as having been stolen from him at that
time.
Robert L. fifttn Identified Sherlock as one of
the four men he saw near the New Lenox depot
on the night of Nov. 10. Oscar Ij. Hutchinson,
station agent at New l.ennx, and his wife testi
fied to the attempted robbery of their store on
the night of Nov. 17. Mierlock, they said, cor
reinded In site and build tn one of the four
bnrglan. Both witnesses have Identified Tom
Klnselle In the Connecticut State prison at
Wethersfleid as the leader of the gang. Harvey
II. Dewey and other witnesses testified tn track,
ing the gang from Hutchinson's to Grosvennr's
and thence tn Stnckbridgr, where they stole a
team and escaped Into New York State.
Tho Government put ten more witnesses on
the stand this afternoon, the most Important of
whom was Charles K. Courow of Chatham. He
swore that on tho morulng after the burglary
be saw four men enter Chatham by way of the
Boston and AIImhv, and was hi Impressed with
their npiK-arancftliat he was able to give a good
description of them all, I.ater hu saw one of
them on a Grand street car in New York, and
positively Idem Wed Sherlock as the man. The
conductor on whose train the gang rode from
Chatham to New York also identified Sherloik
as one of them. The Government railed wit.
neiwes tn prove that the watches stolen from the
rectory were pawned by some one residing at
what waa Sherlock's address, and proved the re
covery nf the watches.
The Government closed at 4:30, and after
Ijvwver Wiley hail made the opening nddrtma
Sherlock took the stand. HU voice is soft and
plesant. but his language showed his lack nf
education and belled his gentlemanly appear
amo. bherlock said he was 43 ) ears old, and
hail been a rar driver twenty eara. He said
that at the time nf the burglary he w as a spei lal
officer in New York, his business being the pre

I.ong Island City in last Decemlier for burglary,
but was discharged. He said ho never was In

The midsummer shows are widely scattered,
but from Manhattan Beach to the Hudson's
Palisade and from Fourteenth to Fifty-eighth
streets there comes no break of novelty in the
current amusements. "The Mikado" lasts on
at the Fifth Avenue, and there Is no relaxation
In the excellence of Its rendering. Sung on the
first night of Its season hero with close adher
ence to the original work, changes In book or
music are not permitted, and the only shift Is In
tho dances of the native Japanese girls. These
are new this week.
More susceptible to alteration Is "The Passing
Show," at the Casino, which Is In parts nothing
more than a variety show. Its snapshots at
city life are few and constitute very faint lm
presslons, but the many hits of burlesque and
specialties are Jumbled together In a way to
form a taking summer show. One of the best
features Is the medley of operatic selections,
sung by performers, whose manner and dress
are utterly unsulted to tho parts they for the
moment assume. Of the specialities, Mabel
Stephenson's Is as bright as any. Mr. Henshaw
Anally stays out the week.
Decided improvement ha been mado In the
manner nf showing the "scenograph" atMnd.
Ison Square Garden. Scats have been provided,
nnd caro Is taken that no mnro persons are ad
mitted to tho nxim from which It Is viewed
than can be accommodated to their comfort.
On view both afternoon and evening, It Is seen
to much latter advantage after dark. Both
uauy showings or it are accompanied by con
certs by the Russian band, led by Ivan Schottoff.
The Saturday and Sunday concerts of Sousa's
band at Manhattan Beach employ assisting
vocal soloists. Walter Joues and William Sloan
will be among those to sing next Saturday, and
will try a song which gives an original explana
tion of the Vigllant's defeat, and which wilt bo
heard later in town, if Its first hearers approve
nf It, Pain's fireworks show Is given every week
dsy night but Monday, and Is Incorporated
with the spectacular version of " Lalla Rnokh."
Three shows a day are gone through with In the
Hagenbeck arena, and seldom are any two per
formances Just alike, for tho number of trained
animals Is large, and their accomplishments are
varied and constantly on the Increase. The box
ing bear Is the newest Item of exhibit. These
entertainments are of great Interest to adults
and children, but the little ones especially tako
great delight In this novel show,
Eldorado's entertainment is mado up of sev
eral features, each unlike the other, and all com
prising a big open-air variety show, Severus
Shaffer's Juggling and the specialties nf tho
Goldsmith sisters sre direct from vaudeville
without alteration, but the living pictures are
nn a scale In keeping with the alze of the stage
from which they are displayed. Another Item
Is the balloon ascension, which Is promised for
each afternoon.
Buffalo Bill's " Wild West" has novel features
enough to compete successfully In this respect
with the best of variety bills, but few of them
are possible to an indoor entertainment. His
audiences, then, are favored, for they may view
an outdoor show In comfort without regard to
the weather. Col. Cody's marksmanship Is one
of the wonderful features of the whole, and his
aids In Hist line, Arnile Oakloyand Johnnlo
Baker, are also very skilful. The seemingly
reckless horsemanship of the rough riders nf
various nationalities Is enough to thrill the
average onlooker, and the cavalry manoeuvres
are as orderly as the others seem confused.
To-night brings the second Wagner night In
the concerts of the Beldl Society at West Brigh
ton Beach, and to-morrow evening comes tho
first Llstt night. The programme of Saturday
evening will be devoted to selections from
" Tannhlluser" and " Uihengrln" and solos will
be sung by Mario Maurer and Mrs. Tyler Drlt-ton.
There Is nothing entirely new in the variety
shows this week, but performers are plentiful,
whose names are familiar from the long con
tinued excellence nf their endeavors. Five
specialties of this grade, are listed at the Union
Square and are: Collins and Henshaw, In songs,
dances, and comical pranks; the three Del
prades, who, aided by elaborate mechanical de
vices, produce some startling Illusions; Walter
Leon, a young and small comedian, who counts
as of full size In the entertainment he furnishes:
Raymon Moore, a favorably known ballad
singer, and Ross and Fenton, with a burlesque
of the murder scene from "Oliver Twist."
Nearly a score of others are included In the bill.
There are few changes In the muslo hall and
roof programmes at Koeter & Dial's, and both
employ clever entertainers. This week's new
comers are Anna Caldwell and the De Forrest,
and the retained ones are Troja, Mario and
Dunham, Bunth and Rudd. the Ethardo sisters,
Naomi. Calccdo, and Hacker and Lester.
The "living pictures" are continued down
stairs, and atop the roof Josephine Sabei, Marie
Gins, Louise flojce, and Theodore Hoch unite
with tho Koesuth orchestra in nightly concerts.
The opera to be sung to-night at Proctor's is
" The Slerry War." and for the last three days
of the week there will be " The Mascot." This
is the last week of tho present opera season at
this theatre, and hereafter the bill will be de
voted entirely to variety show, with "living
pictures" constituting a conspicuous numler.
A series of them is now showing, and in addi
tion to them and the opera there are a number
of specialists engaged.
The Madison Squsre roof msnagement an
nounced that, beginning with this week, they
would give their show In the amphitheatre on
rainy nights, and they made good their offer on
the week's first night, for the programme was
not half finished nn Monday evening when rain

entertainers who are retained here, and the
prominent new ones are Lola Yberri, the Salatn

1th two orchestras alternating on the Casino
roof and with over a score of variety entertain
ers, the performance is a long ono lasting till

Terrace Garden's bill employs besides Smith
and Cook, who are Its best feature, a dozen

open-air concerts of the Franko orchestra are
an important feature.

Complaints against the grlpmen and conduc
tors of the Broadway cable lino have been
growing In frequency nf late, ami the special
grievance. It seems, is that the crews refuse to
stop to take on men.
"Sometime the gripman will slow up," says
one complainant, "and afford you a little less
chance of breaking your neck lu attempting to
Imard the car, but such cases are few and far
tietween. Why. such a nuisance has this be
come that there Is tacit agreement among a
great many of us that we will not pay our fare
on a car that dor not stop for us unless we are
specially asked for it by the conductor. If he
does not ask us for it we don't pay It, because
the only way tn mako a corporation do any
thing la through Its lurket. and when they find
they are losing money by not slopping the cars
they w 111 come to terms and give a man a chance
to ride to his bualnco without endangering his
life."
Yesterday mnmlng a Prw repnrtrr stood on
the southwest corner nf Grand street and Broad
way and signalled tlvo down-town car In suc
cession before he found one to stop, and the
above-quoted remarks were made by a man who
was likewise watting for a car and who finally
bourded the fourth without waiting any more.
