Frank Wediey, Negro Ex-Convict, Suspected of Committing Crimes While Serving a Workhouse Sentence. THE u STUDYING THE SUBJECT Thinks the Court Was Justi fied in Granting Decrees in the Cases. Judgn and minister sat side by ride on the bench in Chcuit Court No. 3 yesterday afternoon during tho trial of divorce cases. Tho Judge was Jnmes K. Withrow, iv ho was attending to his Judicial duties. J nnd tho minister was the Reverend Corne lius H. Patton of No. 3707 Westminster place, pastor of tho First Congregational Church, who -went to the courtroom to see end hear for himself how and on what .prounds divorces aro granted in the State of Missouri The Reverend Mr. Patton, like others of his calling, has devoted much thought to the divorce evil, which, ho says. Is having an insidious effect en the mandates of th Scriptures, which teach that one causa only la sufficient for divorce. The divorco evil, Doctor Patton says. Is as baneful as a plague and mora to bo feared because no remedy has been found to stop Its spread. At a recent church meeting "Divorce and Divorco Laws In This and Other States" was tho subject of discussion. Judge With row was Invited to attend and address the congregation on the subject, but the press of business prevented him from being pres ent Judge Withrow then Invited tho min ister to come and sit with him on the bench bo that he might determine from his own observations the justness of the disposition made of tho cases and Jho decisions ground out by the ""' operated by the laws or the State. WAKTED TO FIMJ OCT FOR HIMSELEV The Reverend Mr. Patton. desirous or learning something of divorco proceedings other than tho information to be gleaned from books and newspapers, accepted Judge Wlthrow'a Invitation and attended court yesterday, the banner day of the year for the trial of divorce suits in the Circuit courts, more than 100 being heard. Mr, Patton said last night that he did not so to the court to get mntrnlnl for a ser mon on the subject of divorce, but to hear jwhat grounds were deemed Just and suf ficient causes for breaking tho marital bond. "I only heard a few cases," said Doctor Patton, "and have not given the matter any mature thought, consequently I am not In e position to discuss the matter. I have always been of the opinion that divorces prere too easily procured In most of the folates and that tho grounds on which thev were granted were seldom sufficient to "SoaUfr ttrora.

(Copyright, 1900, by the New York Herald Company.) Tho Foreign Office refuses to give any in formation about tho latest note from the iTJnlted States Government. It was said, however, that tho German Government regards the execution of Prince Tuan as merely a question of expediency. This confirms jfiic view taken of the Govern ment's policy namely, that Germany Is in clined to give way on this question. In regard to the wltdrawal of the Rus sians, it was declared that tho Government has been cognizant of tho plan for some time. The important point Is that Russia remains in the concert, of which she will also give proof, from a military point of -view, by leaving detachments of troops at Pekin, Tien-Tsln and Taku. The remaining" international troops aro strong enough" to maintain the occupation, as there is no longer any necessity tor mil itary operations on a large scale.

Forced the Price Up to Fifty Cents, sold : 300,000 Bushels Then Bought Again to Hold It lip. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Chicago, 111., Nov. 2C November corn started on a rocket ascension to-day, the scared "shorts" breaking Into tho pit In the morning and touching the fuse. Tho howl ing was demoninc.il. Young Mr. Phillips put an end to the soaring when SO cents was reached. He began to unload and pulled the price down at onco to 49'A cents. All tho morning the little Corn King watched the ebb and flow of the battle. Whenever tho "shorts" howled up tho price in the face of unresponsive takers he made that quick Jerk of tho hand and display of the flnger3 that means "I take," and let out more corn. Turned From Seller to Ilnyrr. Some of the dealers thought that ho was In straits and was running to wind up his string. They Jumped on the market and tried to sell corn at 471c. Phillips turned in stantly from seller to buyer, from bear tu bull, and snapped up every man who was offering to shade the price that lie was making. The decline slopped at once. Pliilllpx showed to the com pit, that he njs ts master: that he could ic-gul.-ite it nt will. The fellows who tried to get some of tne corn king's money, in tho delusion thnt he vas weakening, are now wondering where they will get off on Friday. The closing price was 49 cents a reaction due In Phll llt s's buying. The Arms -who are reputed to lie at tiic mercy of Phillips have given no stai of ex treme worry. They have not shown their hands In tlw pit, but they are watching af fairs cIoe!y. Talk of Special Trnlua if Corn. Theie is still fome talk of special tralns coming with corn enough to make good the obligations to Phillips. To the outtidcr LASHED IN RIGGING OF WRECKED VESSEL. Schooner's Crew in Perilous J'osi- tion With Water Too Rough for Aid to Reach Them. KingstVllle, Ontaiio, Nov. 23. An un known schooner is sunk on tile middle ground off Point Pelee and the sailors are lashed In the rigging, for the masts are above the water. Since Sunday morning the tu? Home Rule, from Amheistburg, has been trying to rescue the men, but there is .such a high sea running that her efforts hnvc been fruitless. Jt Is feared that the men will die from exposure before aid can reach them. The Home Rule came in here this evening and the crew went to the llfesavinir sta tion at the end of Point Pelee to get the lifeboat. Captain Hackett informed them that the boat had not been in tho water for thr'ie years and would not float. The Homo Rule draws too much water to go near the mid dle ground In the heavy sea that is running on Lake Krlo to-night. She will stay here this evening and lea-e In time to get to the wrecked schooner by daylight, when an other effort will be mude to save the crew. Tho schooner Reuben Doud 'is also on the middle ground, but nothing is known of her condition. About fifty boats were an chored west of Point Peleo to-day. Since the wind has gone to the northwest a num ber of them have gone out. . , 'TJTP T1SX THE AIR." there is no sign of this predicted movement. Advices f lorn tho corn belt are that corn is damp and under grade. Very little of the new crop has been taken from the husk. The rains of the last two weeks have stopped outdoor operations. The excited market was the unmistakable admission of tho corn trade that Phillips has a "cinch" on his corner. Phillips's conduct to-day won him great praise. He parted with 300,000 bushels, about one-tenth of his holdings. He bought when the bears tried to drug him off his pedestal. Ho made J30.000. To Keep Price Xciir Fifty Cent. Apparently he is going to keep the settling price around CO cent. If the shorts ale med itating a coup on the last day they may wake up to find that Phillips has closed out his line. He claims now that he cannot b tnuoezed. whatever may happen. As long as he keeps on selling morn than he bu.s and holds down the market to 50 cents' he l too nimble to be crowded oft the market with his corner. Other speculators have been broken by buying at a big price In order to hold up the market and playing out their funds on mar gin". SraieriiH I AIiIIiik Phillips. George A. Seavrus Is giving aid to Phil lips. Some think the elevator man Is hack ing his former employe In the trade. At any rate, the drying and cleaning house of SeJvcin. which. In the past, has been able to turn out contract corn with great ra pidity in times of stress, has not added a bushel to the supply since the Phillips cor ner has developed. Mr. Sejverns's Inactivity Is not accredited to pine benevolence. To-day's price of corn Is the highest since June, ISM. BOER REFUGEES REACH NEW YORK. Commissary General of Transvaal Army and Commandant Snyman Among Them. New York, Ncv. 26. Among the passen gers who arrived to-day on board the steamer Statendam from Rotterdam wcro five refugees from the South African Re publics. Tliry are S.

Rain, which con tinued all day Sunday, turned into sleet and hall about midnight, and toward morn ing into a heavy, wet enow. There were high winds during a part of the time, and aB a result wires of all sorts were generally demoralized this morning. Columbus was nearly cut off from the world, the Western Union having 100 wires down and the Postal being proportionately crippled. The telegraph companies had trouble both East am West, though the greater amount was with the Easiern wires. Locally there were probably 200 telephone wires down. Street cars were Interfered with nnl through trains were from one to two or more hours late. The damage done throughout the State will amount to thousands of dollars. At Cambridge several buildings were blown down. At Batavla Mlsa Anna Hurd was drowned while driving Into a stream where a bridge had washed out.

After a consultation of physicians this morning it was. announced that the condition of Commissioner Wilson of the Internal Revenue Bureau showed a Unlit- ImnrntfnmPnf distil iiuyiu w . .. Police Took Him Into Custody as He Was Leaving a SalooS at S:30 O'Clock at Night Startling Laxity in Control of Prisoners. An evidence of .startling laxity In the con trol of criminals who arc serving terms in the Workhouse developed yesterday in the case of Frank Wediey, negro and ex-convict, who was arrested as he was emerging from a "aloon at No. 1101 South Broadway at 8:30 o'clock Sunday night on suspicion of having perpetrated some of the numerous burglaries of recent occurrence In South St. Louis and particularly the one at the home of Mrs. Mary Dawes. No. 41U California avenue, on November 11. Wcdlcy I3 now under sentence of a year In the Workhouse. Despite the fact that it Is presumed that ho Is serving his term. Chief Desmond and the Second District police think that he has been committing burglaries In the neighborhood of the Workhouse in the last few weeks. Patrolmen declare that they have seen him prowling about the district after dark. On a description furnished by Fred Colen of No. 4120 California avenue, who saw a negro leaving Mrs. Dawes's house on the evening of the burglary. Special Officers Prcndergast and Sherman arrested Wediey. Colen pirtlally Identified the prisoner, who at first Insisted that he lived at No. 1320 South Newstead avenue, but finally ad mitted to Lieutenant Stack that he wa a Workhouse "trusty." Investigation proved that thl3 last state- ment was correct. When Superintendent Conrad Kempt was asked how it happened that he allowed such a dangerous character to roam at will through the city after dark he declared that the "trusties" were required to return to the Workhouse at S o'clock. Wediey was taken into custody at S:C0 o'clock. WORE OVERCOAT TO HIDE COSVICT GARII. "Trusties" are required to wear the garb of Workhouse prisoners when absent from the institution. When Wediey was arrest ed he wore a dark overcoat, which effectu ally concealed the fact that he was a Work house convict. Chief Desmond sweated Wediey, but, as TWO HUNDRED REPORTED KILLED' IN TRAIN WRECK. Contradictory Dispatches From West Virginia Wires at the Scene Down and Confirmation Unobtainable. It was reported last night that a Chesapeake anil Ohio passeoger train bad pluugeU Into the Greenbrier Itlver near Hinton. AV. Va., and that 200 persona, all ou the train, were killed. Wires were down on both sides or the point where the wreck Is said to have occurred, and confirmation of the report could nor be-obtained last night. Railroad men discredit the story and say that it probably had its origin la a landslide at "White Sulphur Springs. Storms were reported yesterday from the lake region and throughout Ohio, Virginia and "West Virginia. All streams In the latter State are swollen and In th Gunyandotte Valley two bridges were earried away. The iirst report of the train disaster said that a biidge, weakened by th flood, had given way under the train, but another story says the engine jumped fhe track nnd carried the coaches with it into the river. Ex-Governor MacCorkle and Auditor-elect Schoor of. West Virginia, a dla pateh says, were on the train. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Parkersburg, W. Va., Nov. W. The mot disastrous wreck since the terrible calamity of Ashtabula, years ago. Is reported from Hinton. The report i- that train No. 1, a fast west bound flyer. Jumped the track about a mile east of Hinton and plunged into the Gre?n brler River. The train consi;.ted of seven coaches, bag gage car, express car, engine and tend?r, and it is the report that all of It went Into tho river. The water Is fifteen feet deep at that point, and after Its terrible plunge there was nothing above the surface of the stream to indicate the awful wreck hidden below. A conservative estimate places 1W aboard the train. It was one of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad's fast trains West and carried a large list of through passengers from Washington and the East. Among the people known to hnve been on the train are ex-Governor William A. MacCorkle, Honorable Arnold G. Schorr. Auditor elect, and Honorable Aler McVey Miller, a member of the State Asylum Board. Wires arc down in all direction" and neither telegraphic or telephonic communi cation could be gotten with either Hinton, Charleston or Huntington. A brief word to the Huntington offices of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad at Huntington, over the railroad company's wires brought the answer from one of the operators that there had been no wreck, but this Is not believed. Honorable W. II. H. Toler. a former member of the State Legislature, and now a member of the State Hospital Board, ar rived here to-day over the Ohio River Rail road from Point Pleasant. Mr. ToIer' home Is at East Bank, Kanawha County. He left home yesterday evening for Charleston, where he was to meet Honor able Alex McVey Miller of Lewlsburg, an other member of the board, and with lilm travel to Weston to attend a meeting of thi board. Mr. Toler waited In Charleston for the train bearing Miller to arrive, but it hail not gotten in at 7 o'clock, when he left for Parkersburg. He made inquiry at the ho tel, and later went to the telegraph office, where he was informed that the train, which wa9 due at Charleston at 3 a. m. and at Hinton two hours earlier, had .plunged Into the Greenbrier River. There was' great excitement In Charles ton over the wreck and persons acquainted with the movements of ex-Governor Mac Corkle and Auditor-elect Schorr'gave him the information that they were on the train and werg ifpantaj k tVStt " (Soslssioa Colon's evidence was hardly sufficient td procure the issuance of a warrant, the pris oner was returned to the Workhouse. While he i serving or enjoying the balance of his term tho Police Department will en deavor to connect him with some of the crimes which the Chiefs believe he has been connected with whllo a "prisoner" in the Workhouse. Chiefs Desmond and Pickcl said last night that Wediey was one of the worst charac teis that the local department has to deal with. He lias been arrested time and again on charges of burglary and highway rob bery. He has served two terms for bur glar", and hi" picture has a prominent po sition in tho rogues' gallery. On March 17, 1S3S. he was arrested on a burglary charge; on May IS, 1S3S, he was again arrested, this time on a charge of highway robbery. In both cases he man aged to escape severe punishment. On August 15. 1SSS. he was caught after he had ransacked the home of William W. Gale at No. 333 North Spring avenue. H? gave bond and skipped the town. Later he was arrested at Cleveland, O.. and returned to this city. The Grand Jury Indicted hlrtt nnd he pleaded guilty to petit larceny and took a year's sentence In the Workhouse. Soon after he was released he was again arrested on a charge of burglary and was again allowed to plead guilty to petit lar ceny and take a year in the Workhouse. Thi last sentence is the one he Is now pr-rving. FRIEMJS A.MOXf; REPi;nLICA POLITICIANS. Wcilley Is said to have good friends among Republican politicians, and the treatment which has been extended him at the Work house would seem to prove this. In one In stance when he was sentenced to the Work house two years ago he was released ' through Mayor Zlegenhcin's remit machine. Chief Desmond paid last night that Wed iey was inclined to be a "swell" negro and that he was all the more dangerous becauia of his apparent ability to obtain 'favors at" the hands of city officials. A determined effort will be made to get evidence agalnat him before he Is released. ou that train, lie had the appointment t meet Mr. Miller, who was to come In on tha first train. Owing to the storm all wires are down and no town within reach of the ecene of the accident can be gotten. The Western Union and Postal Telegraph companies hnve iio wires standing that can reach either Hinton, Charleston or Huntingdon. The long-distance telephone wires are also down and thero Is no means of securing; any further information at this hour. MENIAL FROM HIXTOX. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Hinton. W. Va., Nov. S3.

The battered hulk of what was the St. John schooner Advance was washed ashore on Waltis Sands this afternoon with no. signs of life aboard. Whether her crew of four or' flva men have been taken off by a pasisng ves sel or havo been drowned can only He conjectured." There is a chance that they may have -reached the Isle of Shoals, , -eight miles to the eastward. The schooner Is a complete -wreck. Bhs was sighted at dawn and the Wallls Sands' llfesavcrs waited over six hours for her to strike the beach and when she did the sea. was so heavy that the surfboat could not Be launched. Just before dark they managed to hoard her. in their surfboat, but there waa little to reward them for their efforts, for the schooner was beyond ell hope of evtaa. The Avance sailed from St. John.
