Rose Tiffany's Strange Story of
Her Disappearance.
Drugged Claret, a Ride on a Train
ami She A tvuLi'N at
Kmw Yofk Sun Snoc/af Smcvlca.
Chicago, March 13.—Mystery surrounds
the case of Rose Tiffany, an actress con
nected with a company now appearing in
a down town theater, who disappeared
Monday. She awoke last night in a hoiel
in Joliec and immediately telegraphed to
her mother and the manager of the com
pany. A richly dressed woman, luncheon
at a fashionable hotel, a glass of claret,
a brief ride in a carriage, a dreamy ride
on the train, twe.nty-four hours of dream
less sleep and an awakening—these are
component pt&rts of Miss Tiffany's story.
Miss Tiffany lives at 2431 Michigan av
enue. She has a minor part in James
O'Neill's production of "Monte Cristo,"
at McVicker'a theater, and she is said io
have as many as five lines to say during
the evening. She is a robust, fine looking
girl, 21 years of age.
The actress says she left her home at
2 o'clock Monday afternoon to meet some
friends. She stopped at a down-town de
partment store, and while standing at the
lace counter a richly dressed woman of
middle age approached her. The stranger
apologized and inquired if she were not
Miss Tiffany. Then she talked knowingly
of the actress' former hiome at Buzzard's
Bay, Mass., and convinced her that she
was an old friend.
t'laret MakeM H!er Sleepy.
The upshot of the conversation Avas that
Miss Tiffany accompanied the strange
woman, who said her name was Mrs.
Nichols, to the Auditorium Annex. There
the two ordered a little lunch and the
stranger suggested that they drink a small
bottle of claret. When the claret was
finished Mrs. Nichols invited Miss Tiffany
to accompany her to her home in Engle
wood, and the actress, sleepy and acquies
cent, got into a carriage.
She dimly remembers the ride in the
carriage, she says, ana also that she
stepped aboard a train. The next she
knew her new friend was shaking her vio
lently and telling her that they were at
Englewood. With Mrs. Nichols. Miss Tif
fany left the train, and, although pos-
Bessed by an almost uncontrollable desire
10 fall asleep, managed to reach a hotel,
where she was told to await the reap
pearance of her companion.
She < dines Too.
Miss Tiffany" waited until she could fight
off the stupor no longer, and then took a
room. That was about 6 o'clock Monday
evening and she insists that she knew
nothing until 6 o'clock last night, when
Bhe awoke and was informed by the
chambermaid that she was not in Engle
wood but in the St. Nicholas Hotel at
She ordered a light luncheon, she says,
then took a carriage and was driven to
the railway station, where she caught a
train for Chicago, arriving here at 9:30.
The actress can advance no reason for the
etrange woman's action and last night she
was suffering violently from a headache,
which probably arose from the drug in
the claret.
Duluth—A heavy snowstorm and north
east wind prevail here. The temperature
has gradually turned colder. Street car
traffic is open, but cars are running with
difficulty on some lines.

Bosschieter Case Has a Parallel in
Yonoit Ulrl In Pound In an Alley
and She Cannot Re
Hew York Sun Smmmlml Smrvimm
New York, March 13.—Unconscious,
and, the physicians say. dying, Mary
Paige", the pretty IG-year-old daughter
of C. H. Paige, lies in her father's home,
191 Pearl street, Brooklyn, the victim of
Since she was found. Monday morning,
in an alley, it is said she has beeu
conscious only a few minutes, when she
managed io gasp out that she hud beeu
lured to a livery stable by three young
men, forced to drink a drugged drink, and
then assaulted.
The police arrested George Abbott, Jr.,
17 years old, of 245 Pearl street, Brooklyn,
He admitted knowing Mary, said he had
taken her- i'or a walk Sunday night and
that two oihei youns men had joined
them, but he declared that he know noth
ing about her having been drugged, and
he denied that there had been any as
sault. He gave the names of the two
other youths, and on Miss Paige's com
plaint, warrants were sworn out for them.
••Knock Out Mrn|iM.
The physicians say that the girl is suf
fering from some drug, thought to be
chloral, probably giveu to her in the form
of "knockout drops." They say that she
has received so great a shock the chances
are all against her recovery. They do not
believe she would be able to recognize
her assailants now.
The girl, in the one lucid interval she
has had since her return home, said that
her last clear recollection was of being
taken to a livery stable near Concord and
Tillary streets, Brooklyn, Sunday night,
and there being made to drink by three
men, who had lured her there. The stable
is owned by G. X. Abbott, who lives near
by. It was at Abbott's house that the
girl was found.
Fatal Walk.
Mary Paige is a tall, slender girl, and
looks older than she really is. She left
her father's home Sunday afternoon to
take a walk. Sfie did not return that
evening, and was not heard from at all
until Monday noon, when a small boy
came to Mr. Paige's home to tell him that
his daughter was in an alley near by,
and that she was very ill. The father at
once went to look for her and found her
in a small alley which runs between
Broad and Jay streets. The girl, who
seemed almost unconscious, was sitting
on a stone in the rear of the house at
245 Pearl street.
Mrs. George F. Abbott who lives at that
place told Paige that she had noticed the
girl staggering around in the alley early
that morning. She had gone out to ask
what was the matter with her, but had ob
taiifed no reply. Finally she helped the
girl to the stone and gave her some whis
ky to revive her, but without any re
sult. Mrs. Abbott left the girl sitting in
the alley, not knowing what to make of
her condition but looked to her frequently.
Paige caried his daughter home in his
arms and then sent for Dr. G. G. Hobart
of 128 Sand street. The physician found
the girl suffering from a violent fever.
She was in a state of semi-unconscious-
ness and did not seem to understand what
was said to her. From outward appear
ance, Dr. Hobart concluded that the girl
had been poisoned by some strong narcotic
drug, the effects of which she was unable
io throw off. A further examination re
vealed the fact that she had been assault
ed. The physician worked over her all
night, but could not get her out of tha
stupor until yesterday morning, when she
regained consciousnes and began to speak.
The Girl'x Story.
Mary's mother was the first to obtain
from her a broken and disconnected state
mem concerning what had happened to her
after she left her home Sunday afternoon.
It was not much she had to tell.
She had walked only a short distance
away from her home, she said, when she
met three men that she knew slightly and
whom she was able to name. They per
suaded her to enter some place with them,
the actual character or location of which
she could not tell. There they held her
with force while they compelled her to
swallow some strong drink. The drink
ahd hardly passed down her throat before
she became unconscious. From that and
until the moment when she woke up in
her own bed her memory was a complete
The alley between Jay and Pearl streets
is lined with stables and is very little
frequented, even in the daytime. It is gup
posed that the girl was held a prisoner in
one of the stables all Sunday night and
that the men turned her out into the alley
in the morning.
Judge Bradwell Stay* Also That He
Acquired Land in Mm.
. . nesota.
Mew York Sun Special Smrvlom
Chicago, March 13.—Former Judge
James B. Bardwell has notified Muske
gon. Mich., to the astonishment of many
of the residents, that he owns a big por
tion of that city and is prepared to claim
his due. Sixty-eight acres in the busi
ness and resident section of the city are
claimed, in part, by Mr. Bardwell." and
the present tenants have been given the
alternative of buying the quit claim or
getting out.
Mr. Bardwell declares that he obtained
title to the land in 1862, as cotenant when
the region was largely a pine forest.
Stephen A. Cook and wife of New Jersey
gave the deed conveying the land to Mr.
Bardwell, cotenant with men named
Trowbridge and Brown. In those days
attorneys' fees frequently were paid in
land, and in this method of payment Mr.
Bardwell obtained title to many acres
of real estate in the western states.
Among his holdings, he says, was the sec
tion of Muskegon land now in dispute.
Some lapd in Minnesota was sold last
year and the Muskegon property was the
next to claim his attention.

Assistant Secretary Spaulding Says
There Is No Danger.
There May B«* Xoiue Caiei In China-
town, but the DlNeaae Will
Nul *|irf ntl.
Special to The Journal.
Washington, March 13. —'Merely a pass
ing shower," was Assistant Secretary
Spaulding's comment on the stories of an
epidemic of bubonic plague in San Fran-
Cisco. "There is no epidemic of plague
in San Francisco; there is no danger of
an epidemic of it in the United States and
after this scare has blown over, nothing
more will be heard of it."
' Is the department going to establish
quarantined around Chinatown?" he was
•That is entirely in (he hands of the lo
cal authorities. If they find that condi
tions warrant it they can establish quar
antine. If they ask the assistance of the
marine hospital service it will be given
them. So far as danger from the plague
is concerned it is only necesasry to state
that, so far as I am concerned, I would
just as lieve live in San Francisco now
as in any other part of the country."
Relative to statements that James J.
Hill of the Great Northern railroad was
largely responsible for the agitation. Gen
eral Spaulding said:
"I haven't had a word from him on the
subject and do not believe there is any
truth in any statement that he has any
connection with the present outcry. I
don't believe he knows anything about it.
He is probably not bothering his head
about it at all."
"Are ther any caaes of plague in San
"You will have to ask the doctors about
that. All I can say is that there is no
danger from it anywhere."
It is understood that there are several
well-developed cases of the plague in
Chinatown, but no danger is felt that there
will be an outbreak among the white pop
ulation. At the war department it is
even denied that there is plague among the
Chinese. General Corbin, adjutant gen
eral of the army, told me to-day that he
had received no word of any sort confirma
tory of the plague reports. The war de
partment has not thought of considering
changing its plans for the home coming
of troopa now in the Philippines. They
are to be landed at the Presidio at San
Francisco according to original plans.
The plague stories, it may be observed
in passing, were charged up to J. J. Hill
by certain San Francisco interests, which
claimed that Mr. Hill wanted the troops
unloaded at either Seattle or Tacoma, so
as to provide business for his two lines of
railway west from Minneapolis and St.
Paul, the Northern Pacific and the Great
lowa, and Wisconsin. Too, Have One

Canadians Make Remarks About the
British Tactic*.
A r«u> York Sun Special Servlao
Torouto, Ont., March —There has
been a good deal of criticism here among
Canadians returned from the South Af
rican war of the conduct of British offi
cers in the campaign. Not long ago their
conduct was characterized by one of the
Canadian contingent as supercilious, and
Trooper Linton of.the Strathcona Horse
said the troop was on one occasion or
dered by the British officers into the bat-,
tle line in regular formation, exposing
to the merciless and bloody rifle fire of
the Boers.'. Colonel Steel, who was in com
mand of the Strathconas, told the troop
to disregard these orders, adding:
don't wan to pass a sentence of death on
you." Steel told them to approach the
enemy with all possible caution. -
Speaking of the tactics employed in
fighting the Boers. Linton said the chief
losses of the Strathconas occurred prior
to July, and he attributed the fatalities to
the stupidity of British officers, who or
dered them to advance on the kopjes in a
manner that gave the Boer sharpshooters
every chance to pick them off.

Are Expected to Obey the
New York, March 13.—The 5,000 Douk
obors, or Russian Quakers, who were
brought out to Canada a few years ago
to escape the persecutions in the czar's
domains, now threaten, says a special to
the Times from Montreal, to leave Canada
because they consider the free laws of
that country too oppressive for them. They
have issued an appeal to the nations of
the world to give them refuge from the
tyranny of the Canadian laws and to af
ford them a place to live in accordance
with their consciences.
They objected to taking up land indi
vidually on the ground that private own
ership of land is opposed to the law of
God, and they asked to have a tract of
land set apart for their brotherhood.
The marriage laws of Canada are an
other stumbling block. They do not be
lieve a civil or any other ceremony is
necessary, and they consider it a viola
tion of the law of God to be compelled to
take out a marriage license and to pay $2
therefor. They object that under Cana
dian law a divorce can be obtained only in
the courts.

Many Small Logging Operators
Forced to Suspend.
Sales in the Asbland District the
Heaviest for a Good Many
Special to The Journal.
Ashland, Wig., March. 13. — The early
spring thaws have struck this region and
greatly effected logging operations. A
majority of the small operators have been
forced to suspend and the woodsmen from
these camps are beginning to pour into the
cities of northern Wisconsin and Minne
In the camps of the larger operators the
thaws have not been attended with such
detrimental effects, because most of the
roads used are formed of ice between six
and fourteen inches thick. These roada
will last for some time to come.
An important sale made last week was
that of the logging road of the Red Lake
Transportation company. This road was
built by the Halvorson & Richaxds com
pany between Nebashthe headquarters, and
Red Lake, where the company had a
steamboat line across the lake to Red
river. The line is about fifteen miles in
length and was constructed three years ago
for the purpose of logging the Red Lake
reservation for Shevlin. Carpenter & Co.
and T. B. Walker of Minneapolis. The
lumber companies have about 300,000,000

and the contract of the road includes a
yearly haul of 30,000,000 feet. Probably
one-third of the timber has been taken off.

mer. The purchase of the logging road
and its connections will give the Northern
Pacific an outlet to Red Lake and into

rails on the extension of the Northern
Pacific and by the end of next summer will
have about sixty miles of the new road
built toward Koochiching.
Hall & Munson, who have been logging
some 75,000,000 feet of pine near Maple,
Wis., are said to be making arrangements
to bring the logs to the head of the lake
to be sawed. If this is done, a branch
road about six miles long will be built to
conect with the Northern Pacific.
