WAtniwoTOn. Sept. 22. Tw remarkable re
gatta of a ballistic trial of aVisr ,".. at th
Indian Head naval nrovlrg station near this
city to-day are almost .wrtaln In lead to thn
adoption of a now psoas for treating
heavy plates by wblok battleship may ba
armored with treat!? reduced thickness
of platea with the ssme resisting quality aa
thoaa protecting the tide of the beat fighters
now In the service. No teat at the naval prov
ing itallon during tbe history of armor de
velopment In this country haa so strongly Im
pressed the naval authorities and ordnance ex
perta as that witnessed this afternoon by about
twenty-five officers, naval attnohfa of foreign
Oovernmenta and representatives of two lead
ing armor flnne.
, The plat tested wis one treated with th
new Krupp process, and the result showed that
it Is superior In all respects to plates made by the
Harvey or any other process now In use. Borne
time ago the Carneglea brought' to the Navy
Department's attention the Krupp process, and
asked that It be tried, as the right to use
the new Invention In this country had been
secured. Like all new Inventions, the process
was not received at first with favor, and It was
declared that the armor now being supplied
the navy was unequalled and could probably
not be greatly Improved. A H-lnch plate, how
ever, was manufactured for the Government's
trisls and subjected to the moat severe ballis
tic trial any plate of that thickness had under
gone in the history of armor-making her.
At those trials the most surprising results
were secured. A 6-inch shell which, under
normal conditions and ordinary service veloci
ties, would have pierced the armor, failed to
penetrate it. Three ahota did It little damage.
and no cracks, such as characterize such ter
rific punishment of armor, were In evidence.
The ordnance expert wished a further test of
the value of the new process, and asked that a
I'lnto double that in thickness be submitted.
The plate to-day waa a fraction under 13
Inches, perfectly made, of about th general
length and breadth and supported by the
backing and earth that similar plates have re
ceived on trials. Gen. Kertwago. Russian
naval sttaohe to thla country: Capt. Petroff, in
spector of ordnanoe at Cramps' for the new Rus
sian battleship; Capt. Barholklne, Inspector at
Carnegie's: Capt. Paget. British naval attache.
and the attache's of toe German and Russian
legations attended. In addition, there were
present Capt. O'Nell. Chief of Ordnance, and
I.leuts. Seymour and Boreherof the navy, and
four representatives of the Carneglea and two
from Bethlehem, the two firms furnishing the
navy wltH all its armor.
Against the sides of a Maryland hill the great
plate had been substantially bolted to braces
and about seven feet of wood, and pointing at
It, 300 feet away, was one of the navy's new
1 2-inch guns which haa not yet seen service on
ahiphoard. The first shot sent at the
armor was with reduced powder charge,
and a velocity of 1.833 feet a second,
or about the highest that is generally required
in ballistic trials of armor of this thickness.
The projectile, one of the armor-piercing va
riety, hit the cross chalk mark a little to the
right of the centre and entered only 8X inches,
the shell remaining Imbedded, but showing
signs of having been badly distorted at the
point. No erscks, radial or otherwise, or signs
of weakness, were shown In the plate, and
scarcely a bolt had been moved.
The effect of the shot was to show that, at
least, so far the armor was superior to that
formerly tried. A shell ordinarily would have
got nearly through at such velocity. The
second shot was with the highest ve
locity ever employed in any balllstlo trl
' als with a 12-Inch gun at such a thick
ness of plate, the nowder charge being
Increased o as to augment the r.t.i of the
shell to 2.022 feet a second. Complete penc
il trntion, as was to be expected, was secured, the
projectile passing clear through the armor and
backing and lodging in the embankment What
(I was found of the shell showed it to bo badly
broken and distorted.
Even after this terrific attack the plate gave
1 not the slightest evidence of distress ana no
cracks on the surface were visible. Ordnance
experts explained that no plate ever made
could possibly withstand such a shock at a ve-
locltv that this second shell had been fired.
A third rnd last shot was then fired
at the smaUVft velocity of all. the charge being
so estimated thnt only 1.720 feet a second was
recorded by the wire screens as the projectile
swept through. It penetrated about five inches
aw and stuck.
V A careful examination of the plate showed
tbe absence of the usual large opening cracks
tbnt would have been expected of an ordinary
plate hit three times such heavy blows. To se
cure the velocities obtained the charges of
pova'er were .ISO pounds for the first shot. 417
fo the second, and :I70 for the third.
It was estimated by the experts that the re
als'li g powers of the plate were about equal to
one LIS inches thick treated by the old pro
cess. The effect of the trial. It is said this
evening by the ordnance experts, will lead
moat surely to the adoption of the Krupp
process for the navy and that all the armor
for the three new battleships and four
monitors will he treated with It. An Important
effect on the building of battleships that the
armor will hnve. if adopted, is that the heaviest
f dates on their sides will not be over 15 Inohes
D thickness. It is believed this will he
equivalent o the lH-lnch plates protecting the
Indiana and Oregon class. The reduction In
weight would be about 300 tons to a ship,
which will increase eonl capacity by that much
or allow a considerable Increase In ordnance or

camped here, and the men ordered out to do
guard duty refusod to go.
Heavy rains fell here last night and this
morning, and the soldiers, almost In sight of
their homes and weakened by sickness, did not
relish tha Idea of tramping up and down on a
water-soaked field, with rain coming down In
a steady drlrale. .
When the rain fell the men on guard went
Into their tents. They were ordered back to
duty and refused to go. Another guard was
ordered out and these men refused to go. One
of them, the leader, said:
" You go and tell Col. Stearns that we won't
stay out there for him or anybody else."
. Under the circumstances. Lleut.-Col. Stearns
deemed It best to let the men have their own
way. and he Issued an order for the guard to
An investigation has been ordered, but it will
probably not amount to much, as almost every

young Hartford salesman, against whom the
police have strongctrcumstantlal evidence. and
Charles A. Plumb. Jr.. a Stratford fish-market
man, who acted suspiciously yesterday and haa
not told a clear story.
Young Guilford, wearing hla yachting uni
form, came bowling down tha dusty Stratford
road on his wheel this morning. Three hours
later he rode through Gilbert street to the
brick house near Gilbert Court where his
mother and sister lived during the month
prior to tho Yellow Mill Pond tragedy. .He
dismounted and started to go to the door.
Policeman Peter Hackett who was Instructed
to watch the Gilbert street house, ran across
the road after tbe hunchback; but Guilford,
seeing the policeman coming, jumped on his
wheel and rode off. Hackett started in pur
suit of him.
"Catch that fellow." Hackett cried to some
wheelmen coming along.
But Guilford was speeding away, and after a
few minutes was lost by his pursuers. Hackett
came into Police Headquarters breathless.
" Young Guilford haa just tried to get In the
Guilford house, and he's got away." he ex
claimed. "Got away," cried Chief Birmingham.
"Why he's the man we want Go back and
watch the house, and dont come back here
without him."
Hackett went back to Gilbert Court and
waited In the shadow for the hunch
back. After halt an hour Guilford came
riding up to the house. He looked
around to see if any one was watching him.
The street was deserted. Guilford jumped off
his wheel and walked up to tbe door of his
mother's house. As he was fumbling In his
pockets for the key. Hackett came out from
behind tho house and lsld hi hand on tha
young man's shoulder. Guilford made no re

had no evidence against the hunchback's
mother two days ago ; now he has. Last week
he telegraphed to the Elmira. Wellaburg. and
Montreal police that he did not want the
woman, and the midwife might have gone to
Europe, as it was reported she was going to do.
She came back across the border into New
York State, and is believed to be In the State,
somewhere between Wellaburg and New York,
now. One report is that she is living in Thirty
second street. New York.
Her attorneys, De Forest A Klein, who have
all along held that the woman's absence was
because of her fear of being arrested by State's
Attorney Williams of New Haven county on
the old charge against her, are said to have
heard from her from New York. She was in New
York during the greater part of the spring and
summer, and returned to Bridgeport about the
middle of August.
The "G. 51 mark found on the part of a
woman's undergarment wrapped about Emma
Gill's head was traced 'by New Haven detec
tives to three New Haven laundries. In each
tho detectives found that this mark was the
Guilford mark, and nowhere elso could they
find any one who had this mark. Here in
Bridgeport the mark was formerly used for
several names, but now only one parson in
Bridgeport has the mark, and this Is a woman
who could easily show, if the police cared to
have her do so. that she know nothing about
the Yellow Mill Pond crime before she
read the newspapers of Tuesday. Sopt.

a branch of the New Haven laundry of the same
name, lias received underclothing from Dr.
Guilford marked "G. 51," and sent it to New
Now the theory of the police, working on the
idea that Dr. Guilford had some connection
with tho crime. Is that the undergarment
locked up in Chief Birmingham a safe
was once worn by Emma Gill, and
that while the girl was In Dr. Guilford's care
it was sent by Dr. Guilford to the laundry and
there received tbe "G. 51" mark. Dr. Gull
ford is a sharp woman, and it does not seem
probable that she could have made this blunder.
The "G. 51" has never been regarded by the
police as a valuable clue, but stronger evi
dence has turned up within a lew hours. Since
Foster's arrest the house where Emma Gill lay
while she was under a physician's care, and
whore her body was cut up after she died
from the operation, has been found by
the Bridgeport police in the sparsely settled
town of Stratford, between the Pequonnock
and Housatonic rivers. Fostercatneto Bridge
port while the girl was In this house and saw
her there. The family occupying the house
has lived there for years. None of Its members
is under arrest. Now all the police
have to do before making public the
whole of this story is to And the
person who killed the girl, and they are confi
dent that this arrest will be made this week.
Within s few hours the police have learned the
whole story of Emma Gill's murder, and thay
are no longer groping In the dark with the
blind clues. . .. .
Emma Gill was known to be a girl who might
get into trouble, and when her parents failed
to hear from her after she had written from
Bridgeport that she was ill. they became un
easy. They learned that Foster had no sister
in Stratford, as the girl had told them. They
received a leiter signed by the girl, written
In a strange hand, what gave the New Haven
detectives a strong clue was the receipt by the
mother from the Stratford Post Office of a
letter addressed to her daughter marked
" Unknown." The mother had written to
her daughter and had failed to hear from
her for days, and so had indorsed another let
ter " if not delivered within three days, will the
Pontmaster please return at once ?" The letter
sent to tbe mother was not this one, but a let
ter written by some one else to Emma Gill. In
this letter the mother found why her daughter
had not written her.
Early the next morning Foster was arrested
as he was going to his office In Hartford. The
ajri's movements were traced by the New
Haven detectives from the time she first left
her home in SoutMngton on Aug. 12 to visit
friends at Lighthouse Point, near New Haven,
unttl she entered the house across the Pequon
nock River to die. '
While she was living In a house near New
Haven Foster saw her there and in town,
where sho went several times to do shopping.
She wont then to tbe Stratford house and
while there Foster saw her again. 8he was seen
outside the house with Foster. While she
was there Foster wrote a number of letters to
her. addressing them to Southington. and these
letters kept coming after the girl's body was
thrown oft Beavlew avenue bridge. These
letters the detectives have. They also have
letters found in Foster's room in Hartford.
Charles Plumb, the young Stratford flab
dealer who was pulled out of bed last night by
Deputy Sheriff Stagg. lias not been released.
Although it is believed lie Is not one of the men
lmplleuted In the orlme, he knows something
about It. Plumb called at the Stratford Post
Office yesterday morning.
" Is there a letter horelor Miss Emma Gill T"
he asked In a matter of fact way.
" That's what I saw In the morning papers."
answered the clerk.
" Well, give It to me." said Plumb.
"To you I" exclaimed the clerk. "What do
you want to do with it r The girl's dead."
"Dead? I don't think so; Ikuow where she
Is now. I want to take this letter to her."
"It Isn't addressed in your care, and I can't
give it to you."
Plumb went out and stepped into Tuttle'a
drug store next door. " Has Hartford called me
up 1 he asked.
"I expect to have a call from there on tbe
'phone at just 10 o'clock. It's, almost 10 now."
A few minutes later the te,ephone bell rang
and the olork told Plumb tnat some one in
Hartford wanted to talk to him. Plumb held
his hand to the mouthpiece so that no one
could hear him in the store.
"They're onto us." be exclslmed.
"This Is another fake." Plumb said to Judge
Charles W. Preok. who was standing In the
dporwsy after he was through talking with the
Hartford person a young woman of Hartford,
by tbe way. who waa talking from a Main
afreet drug store. " Why. this Gill girl is alive.
I can lay my hands on lierln the twenty hours."
MPlum b went to his home ou Judson pluce und
came back in a short tune wearing his best
clothes. The next thing, people of quiet little
Stratford said that Charles Plumb had gone to
Hartford and the police were after him.
Plumb came back on a night train, and was
arrested after he had gone to bd by Deputy
Sheriff Stagg of Fairfield county, assisted by

"If there waa ever a strange gTriin town
you can just n that Charlie Plumb

ford hottsewlves. Plumb waa at the morgn
last week to look at the head of
Emma QUI. He was afraid to go alone and
took a Stratford youngster along with him.
He did not recognise the head.
Henry pill. Emma Gill's father, and three of
her brothers gave evidence before .Coroner
Doten this morning which convinced htm that
no mistake had been made this time.
The Identification wss made more positive
by a comparison of charts of tbe girl's teeth,
one made by a Southington dentist before her
death, the other made this afternoon by a
Bridgeport dentist at the Morgue.

A Interesting: Letter Signed Jaek."
A murder and evtlclde In one of the hand
some dwellings In the select residential dis
trict of the Park Bktpe In Brooklyn, yesterday
afternoon, following' quickly on the suicide of
young Neal Donnelkan on the previous day,
caused Intense exoillement among the neigh
bors, who are amon t the beat known society
people In that borou gh.
Mr. Emma Wilson. 40 years old. a widow.
who lived with her two small children In tha
brown stone-front house at 867 Union street
waa shot through the head and instantly killed
by her supposed lovbr. Jamea O'Nell. 42 yesrs
old, who was employed as a yardmaeter In
th Prospect Park ahd Coney Island division
of the Long Island Railroad Company. He
then abot himself In the right ear. and waa In
stantly killed. The double tragedy waa enacted
In the rear parlor, am I at the time of the shoot
ing a Miss Martin of llummlt N. J., waa seated
In the rear bedroom on the second floor,
directly over the rear iWrlor.
Miss Martin became tlarmed at the shooting
and ran down stairs an d Into the street closing
the front door. She then proceeded to the
house of Joseph Wilson, a brother-in-law of
Mra. Wilson, at 385 Union street and notified
Mr. Wilson that shit waa afraid some
one had been shot in his sister-in-law's
house. Miss Martin then notified; the
police and Capt Jamea Tfhlte of the Sixth ave
nue station. Acting Detootlve Scanlon and Pa
trolmen Wilson and Rish hastened to tha
bouse. They found tbe front doors still dosed,
and receiving no response to their ringing of
the bell, entered the adjoining house and after
scaling the fence managed to get Into Mrs.
Wilson's house.
They found Mrs. Wilson stretohed out dead on
the floor, lying on her face with hsr head at the
foot of an upright piano In the front parlor, and
her feet extending Into the rear parlor. O'Neil's
body waa lying In the rear parlor, with his
fast lying toward Mrs. Wilson. There waa only
a short space between tbe two bodies. Between
O'Neil's feet was lying a new self-acting, ham
merless revolver of .38 calibre. It had Ave i
chambers and contained three unexploded '
cartridges and two empty shells.
Mrs. Wilson was dressed In a neat costume of
black and had a jaunty-looking hat on. Capt
White la of the opinion that she had dressed to
go out of the house when she waa interrupted
by the arrival of O'Nell and Miss Martin.
Miss Martin told Capt White that when she
rang the bell about 3 o'clock Mrs. Wilson
opened the door and aaked her to go
upstairs, as she was engaged with a
visitor. Mrs. Wilson then entered the front
parlor, while Miss Martin went upstairs
and took off her hat. Miss Martin said She had
i'ust seated herself when she heard two shots
Ired In rapid succession, and then heard a
noise as if two bodies had fallen. Bbe became
nervous and frightened and ran out of the
Cspt. White was unable to loam anything
about O'Neil excepting that he was the yard
master of the Prospect Park and Coney Island
Railroad, and that he had a brother, John
O'Neil. the proprietor of the Mica Manufactur
ing Company at 89 Fulton street, this city. He
could not learn the brother's home address.
He found that O'Neil's address on the payroll
of the railroad company was 47X Eighteenth
street, but no one at that address had ever
heard of him.
Capt. White learned that Mrs. Wilson, at 3
o'clock yesterday morning, saw a man In ths
front yard, und she rane the messenger call for
a special policeman. When the officer arrived
Mrs. Wilson pointed to a man going down
Union street, near Seventh avenue, and asked
that he be arrested. The special policeman
captured the man before he reached Seventh
avenue, and took him back for Mrs. Wilson to
Identify him.
After she had seen the man's face she said to
the special policeman :
" Oh. let him go. I do not want him arrested
The special policeman was sent for and
viewed O'Neil's body. He told Capt. White
that O'Nell wss the man that Mrs. Wilson re
fused to have arrested.
In O'Neil's pocket was an undated letter that
he had written to Mrs. Wilson, but had not
been mailed. It said:
"Mrs. Wilson: I would like to see you at
Flatbush avenue and Fifth avenue at 10:30
A. M. Jim."
Among Mrs. Wilson's papers was found this
letter, presumably from O'Nell:
v Brooklyn. Sept. 21. 1898.
" Dear Nell: I did not expect that you
would see me this evening when I oaJled.but
you know that I wanted to see you. Now, Nell.
If you will be kind enough and meet me on
Eighth avenue and Garfield place n soon as
you get this note you wiil do me a great favor,
lor I do wish to see you this evenlbg without
fall. Hoping that you will be kind enough and
meet me and you never regret it. I remain
yours, as ever. Jut.'1-
O'Neil had been in a cafS on Union street
nearafeventh avenue, on Wednesday night
and had left the place several timpii. He ap
peared to be excited, and each time he re
turned to the cats' he called for a drink,
and then spoke to several of the fre
quenters, and again left, only to return
again In a short time. He was laat seen by
the frequenters of the cafrf about, midnight,
when he said he was going home. He again
visited the cafe at 1 o'clock yeeterdsy after
noon and was greatly excited. Ho had several
drinks and then left. It ts believed that he en
tered Mrs. Wilson's house about 1:30 o'clock.
O'Nell had a pocketbook In Ills possession
oontalnlna $25 In cash, a pawn ticket for a gold
watch that had been pawned iu Wednesday
for $30. and a scrap of paper, which the police
say Is in Mrs. Wilson's liadn writing. It said:
This letter oase contains ascnpularof the
Sacred Heart, Agnus Del. and a relic of our
Holy Founder. I want you please to carry It
always around you. as tt is a preservation
against contagious diseases. andV will save you
from every danger."
N one oflthe neighbors remembers everlhaving
seen O'Nell in Mrs. Wilson's company or to en
tor her house.
The neighbors say that Mrs. Wilson was very
retiring and never mixed with them. She had
been married twice, and her two children are
William Wilson. 13 years old. and Ralph Mai
Ion, aged 6 years. Her first husband
was Jacob Wilson, a retired builder, who
died about twelve years ago. leaving a large
estate. While Mrs. Wilson brothor-ln-law.
Joseph Wilson, declined to give any par
ticulars to the reporters lsst night, he in
formed the police that Mr. Wilson had left to
her over $100,000. roost of which was Invested
In real estate.

seven years ago. The name of her second
husband was Mallon. and four years ago. It is

Miss Martin, who was In the house when the
shooting occurred, is an old friend and fre-
3uently palled. She told Capt. Wblto that she
Id not know anything about O'Nell and did
not know that Mrs. Wilson had suoh a friend.
On Mrs. Wilson's body the undertaker found
this letter on uper headed "Carey A Sides

A Begrre Girl Thrown lata Morris Caaal and
Piewasa Two Arrests.
An unknown eolored'glrl was drowned In the
Morris Canal, near the Mulberry street bridge.
In th very heart of Newark, last night Tha
police, after a two hours' Investigation which
resulted In two arrests, declared emphatically
that the case, though somewhat Involved In
mystery, Is surely one of murder,
South Canal street near where the girl Is be
lieved to have bean thrown or pushed over a
three-foot stone wall, is an unsavory neigh bor
hood. and the noise of a street quarrel would
attract scant attention. Whether a quarrel
preceded the death of the girl could not
be learned. Several persona heard a scream
for help. It came from the cansl, but when
some men got to the bank the girl had
disappeared under the water. After an
hour's work with grappling Irons Charles
and Emlle Bits bronght the body up
and it was taken to Mullin's morgue and was
at first identified aa that of Belle Bsnks or 215
Acadsmy street This waa later found to be
erroneous, and up to an early hour this morn
ing there had been no Identification.
There wss neither mark nor anything else
on the body or 'clothes to lead to identification.
The clothing consisted or a black cloth dress
and short jacket, black and white figured shirt
waist black shoes and stockings, and white
underclothing, all of good quality. The girl waa
apparently not more than 17 years old. was
well formed, of coffee color, and with a typical
negro face and thick, heavy hair in a huge knot
on the back of the head and pompadour style
In, front. A sword stickpin set with pearls
and Imitation dlsmond earrings snd a finger
ring were on the body. No hat was found.
At least one person living near the scene of
the drowning 1 said to have seen s man with
or near the girl Just before the drowning. Tha
girl went head first Into the canal, and the man
either went Into the 'water after her
or ran away. The police refused to acknowl
edge the possession of such evidence.
So far as they know, they declared, there was
no msn with tho girl. They bIbo denied the
story of a man's hat being found floating In ths
canal, or that a man's body was also thought to
be In the water. After the girl's body was
taken out. however, there waa grappling going
on, but no other body waa found.
The police confessed that up to midnight
they could find no motive for the killing of the
girl. Detectives Donovan and Long worked
on the case all night The two persons arrested
were Gaspard Lumbardo. aged 49, a barber at
73 South Canal street, .opposite where
the drowning occurred, and his wife. Georgia
Lumbardo. aged 43. They were slated as
suspicion " prisoners, what thalr connection
with the oase Is could not be learned, but Capt.
Cosgrov declared t hat t here was sufficient
ground for thetr detention on suspicion of
being principals In whatever orlme was committed.

Democrats Name a Straight Ticket Other
Parties Caa't Agree.
Anaconda. Mont., Sept. 22. The Democratic
Populist and Silver Republican conventions
met In this city yesterday and their time
was spent In appointing committees. In
cluding one on conference', to per
fect ' a plan for fusion. The Democrats
practically demanded everything, and the offer
was declined, and each convention deolded to
proceed alone.
Thla morning the Democrats, after approv
ing free silver and Bryablsm without a word
on territorial expansion, nominated tbe fol
lowing ticket: . ..
Congressman. A. J. Campbell: Chief Justice,
W. H.Pemberton (present Incumbent) : Asso
ciate Justice, William Plgott (present incum
bent): Clerk Supreme Court, Henry G. Rlokert.
The convention then adjourned.
A committee lrom the Populists waited on
the Silver Republicans this morning to discuss
a fusion proposition. Tbe parties agreed to
fuse on Congressman, and Charles 8. Hartman
waa nominated by the Stiver Republicans by a
rising vote.
Then the Silver Republicans repudiated their
agreement and nominated Theodore Brantly
for Chief Justice and Henry C. Smith for Asso
ciate Justice. The Clerk of the Court was left
blank for the Populists, who are still wrangling,
The failure among the silver element to fuse
le regarded a a great vlotory for W. A. Clark
over Marcus Daly In tbe Senatorial contest,
although It Is now conceded that neither can
carry off the plum, owing to the personal
enmity between them.
Indeed, It Is probable that the Republicans
may now win at the polls, casting about 40 per
cent, of the total rote, assuring them at least
the balance or power.
The straight Republican Convention will
meet at Helena on next Friday.
