I1 NEW YORK. July 31. The Important
! financial and railroad news which he-'
came known .last week went far to ex
plain ihe recent turmoil and unsettlo
ment In the stock market and served, at
the same time, to relievo It by the sot
1 tlement of a threatening situation. The
surrender to an International syndicate
headed by Kuhn. Loeb &. Co., of holdings
accumulated by tho so-called Pearsons
syndicate to the formation of a railroad
combination, reaching from tho Atlantic
to tho Pacific, transformed the specula
tive position. The transaction In Its
first . bearing, relieved the stock market of
a necessity for forced liquidation, such
as the Tuesday stock market gave an
example of.
Rapid Fluctuations.
The selling out of loans to the hard
pressed holders of ihe stock designed to
form the combination threw the market
into demoralization that day. An excited
rise In price of corn raised the tempor
ary apprehension that prospective par
tial failure of that crop and fears for tho
country's general credit position were
Involved In the acute depression of tho
stock markot.
While the trouble which overtook the
ambitious project for the formation of a
new railroad combination might be traced
primarily to the market depression grow-
Iing out or general causes, tt was recog
nized that probably It was much ag
gravated by tho attitude of powerful
groups whose Interests were likely to be
Impaired by the proposed now project.
The obvious absence of any protective
measures in the stock market for some
time past was explained by the unwill
ingness of these opposing interests to af
ford support, for the extrication of the
embarrassed party. The moment choson
for the relief of the perilous stock mar
ket situation was the moment of surren
der of the aggressive new projectors in
the railroad world. The antagonisms In
volved lay not only In the railroad Held,
but In the industrial as well, touching
some of the most powerful financial in
. crests lu existence.
Money Situation.
The surface showing of improvement in
the banking position was allowed Its due
inlluence on sentiment. The private set
tlements of the week Involved placing
of large blocks of securities abroad and
there sprang up an Important demana
in the open market for foreign account.
The foreign credit account of the New
York money, market was correspondingly
The Quarterly earnings of the United
States Steel corporation were unexpect
edly large and the heavy decrease In un
filed orders while significant of shrink
age In trade activity, was viewed In the
light of the reduced prices at which or
ders must now be booked. Reports of
agreement by the principal copper pro
ducers to curtail output were revived.

now that the woman can prove hor In

said sho was certain that Crippon hnd

Her father equally believes that she
was the dupe of Crippon.
It Is suggested hero that Crlppen mav

of delaying the course of the law.
Mrs. Lcnever cabled a pathetic ap

tell the police everything and not to

Tho crime which had Its dramatic de

steamer Montrose Is destined to become
pno of the most notable In criminal his

crime but tho remarkable detective chase

to make tho case one of extraordinary
The circumstances of the finding of
the mangled and burned body of Belle
Elmore are of recent occurrence, Ihe sa
lient features being as follows:
Onco in Salt Lake.
Dr. Crlppen and his wife, known by the
stage name of Belle Elmore, had for the
vV?.', ,two yiirs occupied a house at 39
Hllldrop Crescent, North London. He
was an American dentist, born at Cold
water. Mich., educated In Indiana and
pursuing medical study later In Michi
gan. California, Ohio and New York CItv.
He had managed a patent medicine busi
ness in Philadelphia and In Columbus,
and had appeared as a specialist at many
Other nolnts. DMrnll en nioci en
Lake City. St. Louis and Brooklvn.
Belle Elmore was a well known vaude
ville actress, about 35 years old. formerly
of Brooklyn. Sho was an attractive wom
an and an officer of the Music Hall Ar
tlHts Guild of London. With the Crlppen
pair at Hllldrop Crescent lived Miss Lo
nove. a young typist of French birth, who
served as amcnuensls to Dr Crlppen
Mrs. Crlppen disappeared from her ac
customed activities last February. To
her friends. Dr. Crlppen explained she
had gone to California. Later an adver
tisement appeared In the London papers
saying she had died In California. But
Belle Elmore's former actress friends In
London and America began to doubt.
Their Inquiries led to the belief that Mrs.
Crlppen had not died In California, and
their suspicions were communicated to
tho police.
Said Wife Ran Away.
Tho clues of Scotland Yard gradually
began to encircle Dr. Crlppen early in
July. Sir Melville MacNaughton, chief of
the criminal Investigation department,
took the matter personally Jn hand, and
then for the first time appeared on the
scene Inspector Dew. It was Dew who
subjected .Crlppen to the ordcnl of a mi
nute croHs-examlnatlon. The doctor fin
filly admitted that his wlfo had not gone
to California, but asserted that shft had
run away as a result of family bicker
ings. The suavity of Crlppen led tho police
to give conditional credit to his state
ment, and they took his word of honor
that he would remain subject to call
until his story could bo verified. This
was on July 12.
The next day Dr. Crlppen and the
pretty young typist. Miss Lencvc. disap
peared, leaving no trace of Nielr where
abouts. The house at Hllldrop Crescent
was hastily searched. This time Inspec
tor Dew and his staff ransacked cellar
and garret. In the cellar n misplaced
brick led to a ghastly discovery. Beneath
tho floor was found the battered body of
a human being. It had been placed In
quicklime and was burned beyond recog
nition. Even the sex was undetermin
able by the doctors at first, although the
body was finally established as that of a
Then Camo the Search.
Immediately a search of almost world
wide scope began, at. first In London and
England, then through France and con
tinental points and finally to America,
, Many falso clues were followed to a fruit
less end. Dr. Crlppen and his tvplst
appeared to have vanished completely.
Police descriptions were cabled through
out the world. One circumstance of the
lllgbt proved to b most Important, name

clothing, evidently to disguise his corn

The first real clue came on sailing of
tho Canadian Pacific steamer Montrosf
from Antwerp on July 20. A couplo of
strange appearance took hasty passage
on the steamer two hours before It sallod.
They gave the names of "Rev John Rob
inson and John Robinson. Jr.," said to
be father and son.
Credit Duo Kendall.
Two days out, Captain Kendnll of the
Montrose had his suspicions excited. Me
boenme convinced that the younger Rob
inson was a woman and then that the
pair were those for whom London and
the outer world had been searching In
vain. By wireless he communicated his
suspicions to Scotland Yard. A minute
description or Ihe pair sent bv wireless

Kendall s suspicions. The two wore kept
under surveillance, but not under arrest.
Then began tho sensational detective
chase which culminated yesterday. In

and Miss Lencvc became practically as

Old Timer of Western Kansas
Recalls Changes of Forty Years
NEW YORK, July 31. In coming
down the Arkansas valley from Pueblo
to Dodce City, on board an Atchison,
Topeka & Santa Pe train bound for
Chicago, two weeks aco, I could not
help wondering at the marvelous change
that had come over the country in the
last twenty years.
As I looked from the car window
alter reaching tho Kansas line at Cool
ldge, I saw in all directions groves of
trees, orchards and fields bearing abun
dant crops of corn, alfalfa and wheat.
The country reminded me of old settled
communities in Illinois and the grand
state of Ohio. I was still wondering
when the train reached Dodgo City.
Wonderful Transformation.
The idea that tho plains of western
Kansas could ever be made fertile was
something I had never dreamed of. I
was familiar with every foot of tho
counfrv. havinrr nr. nn timp np nnntlm.-
in years gone, pitched nry camp and
hunted buffalo over its large expanse of
territory. This was almost forty years
ago, bpforo the Santa Fo railro'aff was
built. There were no shady groves of
trees, no orchards and fertile fields then.
Instead thorc were buffalo and antelope
aplenty, and the only sign of vegetation
fo be seen anywhere was the nutritious
buffalo grass. ,
In these days the country I am speak
ing about was considered outside th.j
rain belt and such a tiling as growing
a crop or raising an orchard was never
thought of. Rut it is all changed now.
They are having rain out there with
as much regularity as in other states
and. are raising about everything in the
lino of crops that is produced any
where. T arrived in Dodge City about 8
o'clock in the morning. The train slops
there thirty minutes for breakfast. If
is provided by the Harvey system of
eating houses, and there are no better
eating houses anywhere, lot me tell
I hurried up so that I would have a
few minutes to look over the old town.
How different it looked from what it
did when I Iivod there. J remember
when tho first tent was pitched on the
present townsilo in the hummer of 1872.
It was in the fall of that year that
the first train on the Santa Fe reached
tho town.
Dodgo City's Glory.
From then to 1884 Dodge City was a
typical frontier village and without a
doubt t"he liveliest ever built in the
entire west. Everything went to Dodge
City in those days, nnd many a thrilling
atory haB beeu written about the place.
Some were in the main true. A great'
many of f.htni, however, were inventions
of writers of western romance. I lived
there during .ill of these years and per
haps know as much about what hap
pened there as any man living.
Mike Sutton, who was prosecuting at
torney at Dodge City in those days,
often accepted dance hall keepi-rs and
gamblers as jurymen when prosecuting
a criminal caso and Mr. Sutton will tell
you today that he never had occasion to
find fault with the manner in which
these men rendered their verdict, and
Sutton was looked upon as one of the
ablest prosecutors in the west. But it's
all different now at Dodge. There arc
no more dance halls, at any rate the
sort" that flourished when I was a resi
dent of the place. Dodge City is now
a thriving country village, surrounded
bv a thriving farming country.
There are many of tho oldtiniprs still
living there and it is doubtful if they
would caro to livo elsewhere. They are
all well-to-do and happy. And may they
live long and prosper.
WASHINGTON. July 31. A new phase

The Orpheum management made no
mistake In selecting tho bill for the sec
ond week of the season, for tho one which
was presented Sunday afternoon and
evening to capacity audiences Is one oi
tho best seen upon the Orpheum stago
for a long while. If the two bills thus
far this season are samples, lovers of
vaudeville will sec the best lino of shows
thin fall and winter that has ever been
shown here.
Tho press agent designated the Aerial
bnllet as the headllner. While there arc
many who will acquiesce in this view,
there arc- others, and they are in the
big majority, that would select other
numbers on the bill as being entitled
to first place. Which one. however. It
would be difficult to say. as all are in
the headline class.
In ' Tho Code Book." which Is desig
nated as a dramatic Incident, opportunity
is given Allen Atwcll. who portrays the
character of Jose, a Filipino servant, to

to entertain the audience In a clever
There have been cycling stunts pre
sented here before there will bo again
but the work of Valentine and Doolcy,

In the stunt of Fred Warren and Al
Blanchard. Their act Is not only melo
dious, but It is extremely funnv. The im
personation of a colored soubretto by
Warren Is more than well done.
As said, Grlgolail's famous Aerial bal

This, with the KInodrome pictures and
the splendid music by Professor Wlllard
Welhe's orchestra, make up a splendid
bill which will run the week.
Threatening weather and summer heat
seem to Increase rather than decrease
the popularity of the Curtis players at
the Sliubert. Tho new play this week
is ncing given to Inrge. good-natured au
diences. "In Gay Paree" is a slight di
version from the previous productions by
the Curtis company. Tho chorus is bright,
good looking, vivacious and as active and
full of barmony as ever; tho principals
play their respective parts In a way cal
culated to grip tho audiences' sense of
the artistic and humorous, tho scenery
Is new and beautiful, producing a most
pleasing efTect; the music Is catchy am
whlstlcy and lingers In one's ears long
nfter tho last curtain falls.
The scene of the play Is laid In the
courtyard of a Parisian hotel, run bv
one Josh Boniface. Two German tourists
land In town with their pockets out and
secure accommodations at Boniface's es
tablishment. Being unable to pay their
bills, their baggage is attached, and thev
are forced to work out their Indebtedness
as attaches of the hotel, one as waiter,
the other as bellboy. Simon Leschinskl,
a wealthy I-Iebrewi and a queen of Bo
hemia take quarters nt Boniface's hos
telry. The queen is out for the coin, and
Leschinskl looks like easy money. The
two Gcrmnn tourists, the Hebrew and
Mile. Flfl. make a combination which.
when worked into the ludicrous situations
called for during the action of the piece,
convulse the audience with uproarious
laughter from the beginning to tho end
of the extravaganza.
Charley Rcllly Is seen as Josh Boniface,
his excellent voice winning scores of new
friends. Henry Auerbach Impersonates
In a mlrth-nrovoklng manner the wealthy
Hebrew. Jack Curtis and Jack Collins
take the parts of the two Germans. Harry
Ford, as a rich man's son. has little to
do. but docs It exceptionally well. May
belle Baker makes a winsome Mile. Flfl,
good looking, sbapolv. graceful and su
perbly gowned. Lillian Sutherland ap
pears as a social climber. The entire
cast, chorus and principals, work over
time to make "In Gay Parce" the most
delightful production of the summer
shows yet presented by the Curtis aggre
gation. By way of a dlvertlsement. not sched

Italy. In tho nature of a genuine native,
with an excellent voice, singing a song
of foreign composition, was Introduced,
and not until he had responded to half
a dozen encores would tho audience per

"In Gay Paree" continues through tho
week, with usual matinees, and tho plav
will undoubtedly enjoy a crowded house
at every performance.

a plea to tho club women of the coun
try to look Into the matter of their house
workers and see If they cannot mako inc
conditions of domestic servitude better
and more agreeable. Says airs. P0"-.,
"Yonkcrs, N. Y.. a large town on the
Hudson river, points out one way towaru
this end. In Yonkcrs thero has been
established a women's Instltuto, for uic
exclusivo use of domestics. It "as an
employment agency and supports classes
In domestic science for those girls vno
wish to become more expert workers.
There are club rooms and recreation par
lors where the girls .receive and meet
their friends Includinc their men friends.
A group of liberal minded women cs.no
llshed this unique institution, which Is
well patronized by the superior class ot
domestic workers in Yonkers. Tho duos
are small, and members are allowed to
sharo club privileges with friends. It Is
not unusual for employers to present
their domestics with membership cards. It
cannot be said that the women's Institute
has solved the servant problem for Yon
kcrs. but many women testify to Its
happy effects on their own Individual
"The committee on amusements and va
cation resources of working girls In New
York Is collecting a long list of farm
houses and village homes In the moun
tains and near the sea where working
girls, nnd this Includes domestics, may
spend their vncatlonn for very little
money. The committee made an Investi
gation of tho vacation resources provided
by churches, settlements, business estab
lishments, and philanthropic bodies in
New York, nnd found that only about C000
working girls were helped to a country
holiday in the course of the yoar. Six
thousand out of nearly 100,000 girfci In
trades, not to speak of the hundreds of
thousands of domestics. Is n figure which
makes n protty bad showing for the
greatest city on tho continent. It is
probably at least no worse than other
"Every summer, as families leave tho
city for country and seaside, domestics
are thrown out of employment. A de
partment In the women's club can exam
ine vn cat Ion possibilities for domestics.
The clubs can also deal with the employ
ment agency. Some women's organiza
tions bnve already taken hold of this de
partment. The women's educational and
industrial union of Boston conducts a
very large nnd nourishing employment
agency. Women's clubs can study the
laws of their own community In regard
to public employment agencies. They
can Investigate homes for immigrant girls
and boarding houses for working women.
'Preventive work Is better than reform
measures, but both are necessary In deal
ing with this problem. Women have still
much work to do In securing reformato
ries for women. New York Is the flrst
state to establish such reformatories for

tions. The state stands aloof.
"Even In New York public officials are
strangely skeptical of the possibilities of
reform. Last year tho courts of New
York City sent 3000 delinquent women to
the workhouse on Blackwcll's Island a
place notorious for the low stale of Its
morale. They sent only seventeen women
to Bedford reformatory, whero a healthy
routine of outdoor work, and a most ef
fective system administered by a scien
tific penologist does wonders with its
Inmates. Nothing but the will and the or
ganized effort of women will ever solv
the most terrible of all problems, or re
move from society the reproach of ruined
womanhood which blackens It now."
