THE SUN, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1808. -
I ROOSEVELT SEES THE CITS. ' holds a lono confkrknom with the indkpksdent ticket men. a Was on th Point of Reclining Their Nomination When Ho Herlded to With hold the Letter t'ntll To-Day Man In dependent Indorse Beth Low' Position. It w expected that Col. Roosevelt would formally decline the Citizens' Union nomina tion (or Governor yesterday; In fact, he waa II prepared to send a letter telling the Clto that It would be useless (or them to tender him an Independent nomination, aa he would not accept It. hut at the last moment he ohanged i his plans. Col. Roosevelt had a lone talk last night with the leading members o( the Citizens' I'nion committee which nominated htm (or Governor several weeks ago at the City Club. The conference waa held In the City Club and it lasted (rora early In the evening ntll nearly midnight. Among those present were Paul Fuller. Preble Tucker. Alfred II. Klein and John Jay Chapman. When the conference waa over Col. Roosevelt al! that he would not give out the letter which be hnd written to the Citizens' Union Commit tee until some tlmo to-day. alter he hod talked to several other members of that organisation. Be said that he might possibly give the letter out at noon from the residence of his sister, twtt Madison avenue, but that it would probably be made public lstor in the day at Oyster Bay. Col. Roosevelt waa very retl aent concornlng what waa said and done at the conference with the Cits. Ho said he had noth ' tug to say (or publication about the matter ex cept that the conference was very long. Yesterday was another day o( gloom at the Cits' headquarters in Kiist Twenty-third street. I As usual, however, some of the leaders of the movement to project an Independent State tloket with Col. Roosevelt at Ito bead put on a v bold front, and declared that they did not be lieve that the leader of the rough riders could decline such a nomination. Budlnot Keith even went so far aa to writo a letter to the editor o( a Brooklyn newspsper giving the ethical reason why Col. Koosevelt shouldaceept. Oth- era said that If Col. Roosevolt should decline aomebody else would take his place on the ticket, and the work of securing signatures (or the petitions (or Independent nominations would go on juat aa If nothing had happened. Alfred Klein, however, was not so sanguine. Be admitted that If Col. Koosovelt declined to head the Cits' tloket the whole movement would fall to the ground. H. Fulton Cutting received a letter from Beth Low yesterday in answer to the one ho wrote to the President o( Columbia asking him to five his reasons for believing that an imp endent nomination would hurt Col. Roose velt's chances for election. Mr. Low wrote that be was going out of town (or a (ew days, but that when he returned he would reply In full. Thomas S. Osborne, who was nominated by the Cits for Lieutenant-Governor, and who. by the way. Is a member of the state Committee of the National Democrats, also took Mr. Low to task (or throwing cold wator on the inde pendent movement. In a letter to Mr. Low he said: " Your letter on the Independent Stnte ticket, which Is published In the papers this morning, will disappoint many of youradmirors through out the State. Everyone is at liberty to form an opinion o( the wisdom or necessity of the ticket, but the reasons you give seem both 4 superficial and Illogical. The proposed action is the one thing that can cause the defeat o( Col. Roosevelt? How? By bringing him votes? for that is the one great object of the Independent ticket. There ate thousands of voters throughout the State who will not. In tha present condition of 1 affairs, vote for any ordinary Republican can didate. Algerism and Aldrldgelsm have set tled that matter beyond question. This masa 4 of voters of unknown but undoubtedly very considerable number Includes independ ents, Republicans who will not support the party so long as it stands for con niption and incompetence In State and nation, and Democrats like myself who. driven from their pnrty on the silvor issue, are without confidence In the present party management, nut who would far rather vote their own party ticket, whatever Its character, than that of the. Republican machine. All these three classes stand ready and anxious to vote for Col. Roose velt it they can. His name at the head of the Independent tloket gives them thechance. In fact. It suems to many that the only way to elect Roosevelt at all Is by means of this inde pendent ticket. 1 " But perhaps you mean that the nomination by the Independents means that Col. Roose velt will therefore not bo nominated by the Re publicans. In plain language. If Mr. Piatt can not make Roosevelt his catspaw to pull hia chestnuts out of the flre he will prevent Roose velt's nomination. Possibly Mr. Piatt can do this. You. of all men. must realise that Mr. Piatt can perform tricks of this kind: but you. of all men. ought to see to it that Mr. Piatt does not play It twice. If It Is true. K the Republican party a party many o( us were brought up to respect, even if we could not affiliate with it If the Republican party has so sunk itself in sloth and corruption that the Tracy game can be played again with snecess, then It la time that the situation should be made so clear that he who runs may read. "But the independent nomination o( Roosevelt does not mean his defeat In the Republican Convention: it insures it. Mr. Piatt will not dare oppose the will of his party this year, for he well knows that It would mean the ruin of him and bis machine. In short, the Independ ent nomination has helped to force Roosevelt's nomination and will make possible his election "'It (the position of the Independents) seems r to me to be unreasonable and unprofitable and similar to the attitude of the Prohibition ists, who sacrifice all practical results year after year for the sake of a theory.' " No. Mr. Low I It la. in truth, a condition and qota theory that confronts us: and your com parison with the Prohibitionists is both shal low and misleading. They are a band of sin cere men endeavoring to fasten upon their fellow-men a law which the majority of their fellow-citizens either oppose In principle or be lieve will fall In practice. " Those who are advocating this Independent ticket are a band of men no less sincere who. terrified by the results of boss rule in politics. which has within the last year brought such disgrace and dishonor upon State ana Nation as must make every honest man tremble for the future, have determined that their protest shall be heard and heard through out the State. There la not the lightest similarity In the two positions. The Prohibitionists are fighting, as you say, for theory. We are fighting for common hon- v and ordinnry business management in our Government But in that common honesty and ordinary business management are Involved, a we have lately seen, not only the good name of the State, but the very lives of our young men." Gen. Wager Swayno. President of the Brook -Held Republicans, joined the chorus yesterday Of prominent Independents who have raised their voices In support o( the position taken by Mr. Low. He said : I wrote to Mr. Cutting weeks ago. saying I would sever my connection with the Citi zens' Union 1( the movement to run an In dependent State ticket was Indorsed by the Union. As soon as the Union becomes Identified with a State tloket it destroys itself. It was orgnnized to carry out the prin ciple n( non-partisanship in municipal affairs. but when it aids In the running of a State ticket it becomes a poll! leal party, and there tore partisan Mr. Low has expressed my sen Itlments to a dot." All the men In Brooklyn who wore prominent last fall in the Citizens Union movement also strongly indorse the action of Mr. Low. This la how they talk: Former Mayor Charles A, Sehleren I was of the Impression that the Citizens' Union was farmed for municipal purposes alouo. I con alder it a big mistake that It should Interest It salt in State matters. It should have no part In a State convention. Ludwig Nissen The Citizens' Union was broughtlnto being (or tho purHise of improv ing municipal affairs, it was not the intention of Its organizers to have anything whatever to do with State elections. I am afraid that If t continues In tho course which some of ts misguided members have laid out for It t will soon loso the prestige It obtained ast yoar. 1 am very much pleased with Mr Lw s letter. It clears the way In this matter ilcely. He Is a man of the right timber. I be jeve It to he the duty of Republicans to sup port their candidates so long aa they are de al .able men. Henry llatterman In order to Insure Mr Roosevelt's election wo should not have any independent efforts at this time. I moat heartily indorse the sentiments set forth in Mr. Low's letter. The following statement waa given out at the Cits' hcadquartera yesterday: " The Independent Committee Ims no Inten tion ot nominating any but good men as candi dates (or the Assembly and Senate and (or Congress, and further, in all districts except those which are at present controlled by the independents, land In which the Democrats nominate silver men, the Independent Com mittee will agree with the Republicans upon oanlidates, exacting only as the qualification of mnlidacy recognized honesty and good ilia, icter. and will take legal measures to pro tect their candidates (rom the lllagal use of their name and emblem."

But that the Secretary of the conference be Instructed when these resolutions bo adopted to send a oopy to the Secretary ot the Demo cratic Convention. "Jieiolred.

MONROE PROHIBITIONISTS. They Hold a Series of Conventions and Make Several Nomination!. Rochester, Sept. 23 There was an en thusiastic convention of Prohibitionists in this city to-day to make nominations of all the candidates, with the exception of tho State ticket, to be voted for at the coming election. A temporary organization was effected, and then the oold water poople settled down to busi ness. One of the delegates plncea In nomina tion aa candidate for member of Congress for the Thirty-first Congress district the name of B. C. Montgomery. Mr. Montgomery promptly declined. He said he bad good reasons for so doing, some o( them being well known. He In turn placed before the convention the name ot Prof . B. H. Robert of Chill Centre, who was nominated unanimously. The name of George E. Mlllman was placed In nomination for County Judge. He was unanimously selected. Then a hunt was start ed for a candidate for the District Attorneyship. This provoked considerable discussion, and it was llnallv decided to pass the nomination and have a committee round up a Prohibitionist who will accept the nomination. Dr. Byan ot Mumtord and Dr. Eddington of Rochester were placed in nomination as candidates for Cor oners. The convention officers and the County Chairman were made a committee to fill all vacancies on the ticket. , .". The convention then adjourned, and the delegates to the conventions of the Forty-third and Forty-fourth Senatorial districts met for conference. J. R. Meroereau was named for the former and F. J. Mitchell of Greece for the latter. The Chairmen of the First. Third, and Fourth Assembly districts then called meetings of their committees. These men were named for tho respective districts: B. II.

The Younger Voter Dissatisfied with tha Tammany Leader of the District. There Is every indication that Henry C. Hart, the Tammany leader in the Thirtieth Assem bly district, will have a stiff fight on his hands this election. Tho district is a strong Tam many one, but the young men are dissatisfied with Hart'a leadership, and they are bent on ousting him. To that end the Young Men's Club was organized on Thursday night, when 400 members were enrolled. The movement is headed by Dr. Simon J. O'Neil. to whom was offered the nomination for Coroner by Tam many Hall at the last election. The Young Men's Club has hired a house In East Eighty-sixth street near Third avenue. and will nold regular meetings and work to in crease Its membership. Tho movement is an anti-Tammany one. The Young Men's Club will combine with tho Independents and Cits in the district to heat tho Tammany candidates. The fight will be mado on the Assemblyman. The dissatisfaction is caused by Leader Hart ignoring the younger element in the distribu tion ot patronage. The leaders of the anti Tammany movement say that the patronage credited to the district has been given to men living outside the district. BTATKN ISLAND REPUBLICANS. Senate.

Harry Oxley Ponnd to Have Sent Money to the Mtdwtf and Now Aeened of Com plicity In the Girl's Death Dr. Onllford's Movement Final Cine to the Crime. Bbidobfobt. Conn.. Sept. 23 Harry Oxley. the son of a storekeeper In the village of Bouth Ington, Hartford county, was arrested this afternoon at his 1 me by Capt. Arnold of the Bridgeport police and Detective Sergeant Smith otthe Hartford police, and was brought here to-night with Howard Guernsey, son of Sherman F. Guernsey, a deacon In the First Congregational Churoh of Bouth Ington. Oxloy is oharged with complicity in tho malpractice that caused the death of Emma Gill, the girl whose body, cut Into even pieces and tied up In bundles, waa found near the Seaview Avenue Bridge. In the Yellow Mill Pond. In the outskirts of Bridge port early last week. Guernsey, an Intimate friend of Oxley, Is held aa a witness. Walter C. Foster, tho Hartford salesman who had an Intimate acquaintance with the young woman and was arrested by the Hartford police on Wednesday morning, will probably be released. Oxley's arrest was msde ss the result of the tracing from Plantsvllln, a village adjoining Sout hington on the aouth, of an express package containing a sum of money, between f 100 and $200. seut by him to Dr. Nancy Alice Guilford, the Bridgeport mldwifo, who suddenly dis appeared when the girl's body was found and who has been wanted by the Bridge port police sinoo yesterday afternoon, when strong circumstantial evidence against her was discovered by Capt. Arnold. For a while the police behoved that Dr. Gull ford wan innocent despite the " G. Bl," but the New Haven police hold to It that tho midwife had a hand In the crime, although they could bring forth no better evidence than this laun dry mark. Tho Bridgeport police would not arrest her without strong evidence and allowed tho woman to getaway. When tho new evidence the express money package was found yes terday by tho Bridgeport police. Chief Birming ham at onoe took steps to arrest her. The midwife might now be out of the reach of the law if she had not been too confident In the inability of the Bridgeport police to find direct evidence against her. Some days before Emma Gill's death she told her neighbors that she and her daughter, Eudora. would go to Wollsburg, N. i., about the middle of Sep tember to visit her brother, Stephen Brown. On Monday night. Bopt. 12. Emma Gill's body was found. Dr. Guilford and Eudora wulked down to tbe railroad statiou the next morning and boarded a train lor New York. She had been in Wollsburg only a few hours when she hoard of tho finding of her family laundry mark. "G 51." on a piece of under clothing wound around the victim's head. She fled to Montreal, and there sought to make It appear that she had sailed for Liverpool on the steamship Vancouver. Then she returned to her brother's house, .she bad not been there long when the Wellsburg police, who hod let tno woman escape for lack ot an order from Bridgeport to arrest hor. received a request to watch her and not let hor again escape. Rose Drayiou. a colored laundress for the midwife, and her young daughter, Claribel, a servant In tho Guilford family, wore arrested on Cannon street to-night. Claribel wan en gaged by Dr. Guilford a short time ufter the lannly opened the house at 51 Gilbert street, about tho middle ot August. She is an igno rant girl. Sho and her mother have been closely questioned by the police bctore. but no evidence could lie found that either knew any thing about the killing of tho Southington girl. Claribel said that during the last week tho Guilfords were in town sho slept in the house every night, ami saw no strangers there. She told how workmen had been busy all over tho house laying carpets and hanging shades just before Dr. Guilford went away and how sho bad been all over the house without seeing any one there hut Dr. Guilford, her duughter Eudora ami tho girl's suitor Now the police have an Idea that Emma Uill died ami her body was cut up in the Guilford house; but it may bo found that the girl was taken to a house in the outskirts of the town not far ti "in Yollow .Mill Pond when It was seen that sho would probably die. On the Friday before the body was round probably the day before the girl died-a man drove up to the Guilford house In n buggy, ami after spending some time in tho house, came out with two young women, one of them too ill to walk alone, and drovo away with them. Tho sick girl may not have been Eminu Gill, but Dr. Guilford will have to explain who she was. Search of tho town ot Stratford, between the Pequonnock and Hoiisatonlc rivers is said to have revealed the houso In which Emma Glll'a body was out up. That the houso Is not In the village of Strutford seems probablo from tho fact that from Stratford it Is only a short drive, aud that along quiet roads, to the broad Houan tonic. From the long Washington Bridge, crossing the Housatonlc not far from the Bound, a few rods below the railroad bridge, a woman's body was thrown Into tho river some thirty years ago. She had died as Emma Gill had died, and the crime would never havo been heard of had not a tioatmaii seon tho body drop into the river. All through the town of Strat ford are lukes. mlllponds, and running streams whore n body could be thrown away without danger of its ever being discovered. Only a stranger or u person Ignorant of tho rlao and fall of the tide would throw a body into Yellow Mill Pond, where twice a day. as the tide runs out, nearly tho wholo of tho bottom o( black mud Is uncovered. Yellow Mill Pond must have been selected because It was near the house where the body was cut up. Some days ago to tell how it was that Oxler was arrested two men found in a rubbish heap behind the Guilford house In Gilbert street two envolopes. In one was a letter written by Dr. Gill, the husband of the mid wife, from the Wetherslleld Prison to his daughter Eudora. The other contained nothing. It was a torn Adams Express money envelope sent to "Dr. N. A. Guilford. 51 Gilbert street. Bridgeport, Conn." The wnx seal on the back was stamped "Planta villo. Conn." This was just after the Mlddle boro engineer had come to take Emma Gill's body home as that of his daughter. Marian GrucoForklns, and as neither the Perkins girl nor her suitor. Charles Bourne, had been In central Connecticut, the money envelope could not bo connected with tha crime. It waa for gotten for the time. Plantsvlllo Is only a milo from Southington. W hen the victim of the Yellow Mill Pond mur der was found to bo a Southington girl the ox press envelope from Plnntsvlllc addressed to Ur. Guilford was recalled. Early this morning two newspaper men loft for Southington to find who Bonttlu money front Plantsvllle. Later in tho day another newspaper man left on the same orrnnd. Tbe Plaiitsville agent of tho Adams Expresa told the first men who mot him that the rules ot the company were plain: lie could not glvo tho sender s name without authority from the company's officers. The New Haven and Boston superintendents were asked over the telephone if the name could he given. They would give the Information only to the officers of tho Taw. So one of the two newspaper men who first left Bridgeport took u train for Now Haven to find Capt. Cowles ot the New Haven police. ' Great Scott I mini," exclaimed tho Captain, when ho heard of tho express envelope. Thls Is the host thine we've run across! I'll send a man to Plaiitsvnie, and I'll get that iiamo If I huvo to take the whole Plaiitsville office." But ('apt. Arnold of tho Bridgeport police was ahead of him Ho hud got a trace of the en velope independently, and this morning, aftor a hasty conference with Chlot Birmingham, ho started (or Plaiitsville behind tho newspaper men Ho wont first to Hartford to get Detective Sergeant Smith, and the two reached ta little Hartford county village early in the afternoon. Detective Cronan of the Bridgeport police had gone to Southington on an earlier train, not knowing that dipt Arnold was working on the express envelope clue. Arnold found that Oxloy had sent an amount oxceeding $100 to Dr. Guilford by express. Oxley. he found, had known Emma Gill ami had been seen with her. Just before the Gill girl left for Bridgeport she was seon with Lillian Katzel. a servant In tho Oxley household. Arnold saw Oxley and asked him why he had sont money (o the Bridgeport midwife. Oxloy could not unswor uud no was placed under arrest. Guernsey, who was found to know about Ox ley's relations with Emma GUI, was also ar rested. Arnold then went to tho railroad sta tion to get tickets for Bridgeport and met Cro nun. Both men were surprised. "I've got 'enil I've got them I" cried Arnold, throwing m his bands and then slapping Cro nan on the back. " All wo wunt now Is the " Then Arnold saw a newspaper man coming toward hlin and gasped. What I" he ei led. "und you hero too? Well. I've got the man now." Capt. Arnold smiled when he heard how near he bad come to losing the honor of capturing Oxley. Foster will probably be released at once. He can prove that ho was in Plttslleld, Mass.. from Sept 5 to 12. 'I don't think Foster was In It." said Chief Birmingham to-night. "Oxley sent the money. We havo plenty of evidence, and the whole thing will lie cleared up In short order. All I waut now is one man." Charles Plumb, the Stratford boy who was arrested on suspicion, was released to-nUht, Ho will have less to say about missing girls hereafter. Harry Guilford, the midwife's hunchback son, who was arrested yesterday as he was entering hi mother's house, will be examined In the police court this morning. Emma Gill's body was buried to-day iu Oak Hill Cemetery. Southington. To Cure a Cold la Ona Day Tak Laxative Brooio Quinine TViUla. All drnggliU rufuud Uie latiue If 11 rsil w cure.

OKRMAXT An THK Fll.iriXO. Alleged Secret Agreement to Assist Agnl naldo and Drive Onr Forces Ont. Bah Francisco. Sept. 23 A former resident of the Philippines, now In San Francisco. who has secret Information of the plan of tho Germans to obtain possession of the Islands, declares that the German Emperor's plana Include sending 150,000 rifles to Agulnaldo, with some trained artillery offi cers, and when Agulnaldo haa proved suc cessful In worrying the Americans Into relinquishing their control of the Islands tho Germans will step In and selre the Islands under the plea of protecting their trade. It Is asserted that knowledge of this plan In duced the Government laat week to order the despatch to Manila of tl 000 volunteers In camp here. In June last a man who has spent much of his life In the Philippines and who enjoys the confidence, of German merchants In the Islands, as well as the diplomats of Borlln, gave the United States Govern ment Information that has already proved of Incalculable value. Upon that informa tion the Government ordered the Charleston expedition to take the Ladrone Islands. At the same time this man gave the world the first Information of the German Inten tions In the Philippines, and with his knowledge of that Government's policy predicted serious complications. He toid how he had seen Germany's officials In the guise of traders supplying arms and ammuni tion to Filipinos for years with deliberate de sign to harass Spain until she would be glad to part with the Islands at any price. Plans have been completed whereby the policy inaugurated under Spanish rule In the islands will be continued. Germany Is determined to have the Philippines, and Agulnaldo will continue to lie a cots paw to rake in the chestnuts. He has been beguiled by Germany Into tho belief that he will lie permitted to assume the reins of Government In exchange for valuable con cessions and commercial advantages that he can bestow upon the Germans, but Germany does not expect to retain him even aa a figure head. The man to whom the United States Govern ment is Indebted for so much valuable Infor mation has just received from an authorl tntlve source In Hamburg details of the plans to bo pursued by Germany. It says that the secret agents of Germany who wero sent to tho Philippines hsve returned and submitted the policy that they have mapped out as most feasible. They declare that be tween 100.000 and 150.000 Filipinos can be armed, equipped nnd thoroughly drilled by Feb ruary next. They calculate by that tlmo the Americans will not beable to land forces of over 50.000 men. Tho Filipinos will practically control all of the Islands, while the American army will be concentrated In Manila. thousands of miles from Its base of supplies. Dewoy's fleet will be almost useless against the in surgents. The plan Is to load every German vessel for the Philippines with arms and ammunition for the Insurgents. The report says: " While America must send a man with every rlflo nnd feed him besides. Germany must send only rifles and tbe men will bo found who can use them and at the same time feed them selves." Tho German agents report that the Ameri can forces are particularly weak in field artillery, and suggest that a large num ber of machine guns and Krupp rapid fire field guns and small artillery he supplied to tnc1 Insurgents. It recommends that every vessel carrying arms also carry a few German officers in disguise to drill the Filipinos. The report has been approved by the Ger man Government, and within tho next few months every German vessel that touches at tho Philippines will carry German arms and German officers The Government expects to arm 150,000 Filipinos and organizo and drill a force of 10.000 artillerymen. Agulnaldo will gradually concentrate his (orces. and by Feb. 1 will bo ready to begin active operations against the Americans.

Davis, whose father I aaid to be connected with the Davis Coal and Coke Company of New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore, whoso mines cover a large part of two oounties in West Virginia, has electrified Galveston with his lavish expenditure of money. Ho came here from New York four weeks ago. accompanied by s valet. Miss Smith, sn actress, said to have been a member ot several well-known companies, was a passenger on the same stesmor. Both registered st the Tre mont Hotel. The banks here, it is said, were notified that young Davis's drafts wore good up to $7,000,000. Mr. Dsvls developed s predilection for bi cycles, yachts nnd hacks, and Anally for prize fighting. He chartered a yacht, nnd made a trip with Miss Smith nnd a party of friends to Roekport and Corpus Christ I. Champagne waa plentiful, but the actress preferred draught beer from a pitcher. Tho hack driver reaped s harvest from Mr. Davis, as they were on the go all the time while ho had the hack craze. Mr. Davis's next fad was pugilism. Ho be came deeply Interested In Jim Hall, the Aus tralian, who once defeated Fltr.slmmons. Hall la instructor of boxing at the Galveston Ath letic Club, and for nearlya week Davis made the olubrooms his headquarters. Last night, for the edification of Miss Smith, there waa a light to a finish at the olubrooms between two of the best known local pugilists. Hall rofereed the bout, which lasted eight rounds. It was one of tho fiercest fights ever seen here. Miss Smith was In ecstasies. She clapped her hands, cheered, and said It waa tho most glorious sport she had ever wttnessei). The boxers had no cause for complaint, as Mr. Davis paid them handsomely for the entertainment. How much money Mr. Dnvls has spent since bis arrival In Galveston nobody knows. Four days ago ho went to the chief clerk at the Tre inont Hotel and told him he wanted J500 for pocket money. The clerk hesitated. Davis laughed and snld: "Just telegraph to the Davis Bank of Davis. W. Vav or to my banker In Baltimore, and ask If my draft will be honored." This was done and the reply came, " Yea." The money lasted three dsys, and yesterday Davis told the clerk he wan broke and waa going away. He wanted $'J.5oo. and again the telegraph was called Into service and the re ply came: ' Wo have advised the banking house of Weeks. McCarthy A Co. that Mr. Davis's drafts will be honored up to $7,000,000." A local liveryman went to the hotel on Mon day and asked for Mr. Davia. saying that he had a bill for $50 against htm for breaking rig. Tho clerk paid the bill at once, remarking that Mr. Davis had money to burn. "However." said the liveryman, "give me the bill again and I'll make It a hundred." "Not much." replied the clerk :" only $50 goes, but If It had been $150 It would have Been all the same to Mr. Davis." Mr. Davis had no lack of friends to help him burn money, and showed his sociability by showering monoy In all directions to pay all the bills of people who accompanied him. Mr. Davis and Miss Smith left to-day on the steamer San Marcos for Key West. From there they will go to Havana and Poco Rico and thenco to New York. SIGHT MINKRS KIT.IKD. The Work of Rescue After the Explosion Led by a Methodist Preacher. BRowNsyiLLB. Pa.. Bept. 23. An explosion of gas occurred this morning In tho Umpire mine, owned by Snowden, Gould Co.. a quarter of a mile from here, and eight miners were killed. Several others were injured and two are in a critical condition. More than 150 men were In the mine at the tlmo of the accident. Fifty-eight were In entries 0 and 10. where tho explosion occurred. Tho presence of firedamp rendered the work ot rcscuo dangerous, and the securing of vol unteers for the work was difficult. The ex plosion was cnused by the ignition of fire damp from a torch oarried by one of the miners. As soon aa the news of the accident got abroad hundreds of persons rushed to the scene. The main entrance was blocked by the wives and children of the miners still in the mine, and they pleaded for men to go to the rescue, while the miners who escaped were surrounded ny their wives, who begged them not to take tho risk. Valuable time was being lost, when the Kev. John Law. a Methodist preacher, stripped himself to the waist and. seizing a miner s lamp nnd a plok. rushed Into the mine. The miners followed him in. After several hours tho eight bodies were brought out. All the physicians of Brownsville were at the pit mouth, and were kept busy In dressing the wounds of those who got out. Twenty-seven miners had a thrilling escape. As soon as they heard the explosion they start ed through tho back way. Dodging the failing slate and coal, they ran and crawled through IS miles of abandoned passages, pursued by the deadly after damp, and came out at a point on Redstone Creek, four miles from the pit mouth. 1H Aft Til A VAX WIXKLK A BUICITtK, The Negro Girl Found In Morris Canal Probably Drowned Herself.

She said just before going out: " I am sick and tired of this and I'll got out and leave you In peace. I am nogood In this world and I'll just get out of it." Twenty minutes later the poople near the lower end ot Centre Market heard sploshing and screams In the canal. The police still hold Barber Lombard! and his wife, because Mrs. Walters, who lives op posite the barber shop, says that she saw 1ombnrdi drag Mrs. Lorn bardi Into the house and shut up the shop just as her attention was called to the cries and splashing in the canal.

It Is reported that an amicable agreement between the Argen tine and Chilian governments has been signed. The trouble between these countries has ex isted for years, but did not roach a serious phase until It was discovered that there la an ex cellent country east of the Cordilleras in Pata gonia, to which both countries laid claim. The trouble grew out of various misunderstandings as to the interpretation of the treaty in which they had fixed the boundary line between them. The partlcularmisundcrstandlng which Is responsible for most of tho bad feeling Is In teresting in a geographical sense. The treaty provides that the boundary line shall coincide with the water parting between the rivers flowing west through Chill Into the Pacific and those flowing east into Argentina. The contention of the latter country has been that it was supposed when the treaty was made that this water parting was coincident with the highest and central crests of the Cordlllernn ranges and that the trentymust be Interpreted according to what it meant and not what it said. It was discovered when careful explora tions were mado for delimiting the frontier that not a few of the Chilian rivers rise to the east of the central ranges in territory that Argentina had supposed was secure ly her, and in this disputed territory some beautiful and fertile valleys were found which are now occupied by flourishing colonies over which both countries claim juris diction. Chill took her stand upon the letter of the treaty and Argentina took here upon what she asserted was the spirit and real moan ing of that document. If Argentina's contention Is correct the gen tlemen who drew the treaty didn't say exactly what they meant. In short, it ts another In stance of fixing a boundary Involving geo graphical questions before the geography Is understood. Tho explorations which both countries have zealously promoted since the dispute arose have thrown a good deal of light upon the Southern Cordilleras. MARCH AND AT FA SHOD A.
