VOL XII. NO. 27H. . PBICE THREE CENTS. NEW HAVEN CONN., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1894 THE CARRINGTON PUBLISHING CO. . MRS. PITZEL WAS EXCITED. BUM SAID HER DAVOHTKR HAD pTEBOlLEUSLT DECEIVED HER, Meda Said That Bar Father Told H.r B. Would be Kara Vo Hatter WW She Should Hear-olma Takes HI Arrest Cooly MM rilwl la Alive. Philadelphia, Nor. 21. President Fouse of the Fidelity Mutual Life Insur ance oompany to-day received dis- patch from the Chicago repreeentatlve of the association that B.F. Pltsel, the reported victim of the Insurance con uplracy, had been seen within the past two weeka In Meyer saloon on Sixty ninth street, Chicago, In oompany with a man named Ryan. President Fouee Inclinee to the belief In view of this In formation that PlUel is alive.' President Fouse thla afternoon said "I think murder was done, but I be lieve that the victim waa a man other than Pltsel. Our representative further eays that Mr. Ryan, with whom Pltzel waa seen, la a Chicago 'business man who knows Pltsel well, having had bus iness relatione. Our Chicago man sub sequently saw Ryan, but the latter de clared his Inability to locate Pltzel. The Plnkerton agency and our represents tlve are now at work upon) a clue, and I should not be surprised If Pltzel. was found In a few days." Lawyer Howe is expected to arrive this evening from St Louis with Attor ney McDonald to answer to the charge of conspiracy. President, Fouse states that he expects to recover a portion, at least, of the $10,000 fraudulently cured from the association. "We have procured an attachment In St. Louis against Howe," he added, "to recover $2,200 of the money he re ceived." As Holmes maintains that the three missing Pltzel children are with -their father, the discovery of the supposed viotlm will probably clear up the mys tery regarding the offspring. President Fouse had an interview this afternoon with Mrs. Pltzel. The tat ter's sixteen-year-old daughter, Meda, was present In the cell, and the talk had not proceeded far when the girl declared that she believed her father to be alive. The daughter then told of a conversation she had with her father in Chicago tot August last, during which Pltzel saidr "My daughter, if at any time -you should hear that I am dead or that anything very serious had hap pened .to., ma do not believe it I will be safe, no matter what you hear." The! girl had barely finished making this- statement when her mother sprang w mi,, iwvniiif uer actus about- wildly eatchvfmed:, : r.. .- "Suefc lies! Such falsehoods . I have rave never met with as in this affair, nd even you, my own- chilld, have de ceived me heartlessly and mercilessly, - As the mother finished she. oast a. look of scorn on (her daughter's cringing . ngure. - . . . The girl further said that after the death of her father was reported she met Holmes in Boston. Holmes said to her; . "1 suppose your father told you what to tmiuc it his death was reported?" To this Meda made an affirmative an swer, whereupon Holmes declared: "Well, that's all right" ." President Fouse's interview with Holmes was mainly directed toward discovering jthe extent to which Howe, the St Louis attorney, Is implicated in the conspiracy to swindle the Insur ance company.-' According to Holmes, Howe was cognizant of the plot almost from its inception. Holmes says that aedgpeth, the St Louis train robber, notrin jail, told him that Howe was a good, nervy man, who could be trusted. Holmes outlined the plot to Howe. Howe -was unwilling to appear as the principal in It He advised that, If it was successful some friend of the family identified ''the- corpse .. first Howe's advice was followed. Of the $10,000 received from the Insurance Company, Howe retained $2,600 for coun sel fees and $400 for expenses. ' Holmes says Pltzel is either in South Amerioa or in. the extreme southern pari of the country and could not have possibly been in' Chicago within the past two weeks, . Holmes asserts that the doctor from whom he claims to have secured, the. body was recently engaged in .a swindling insurance scheme and has suppositlously died, Holmes takes his arrest coolly, and eats well, Mrs. Pltzel is seriously ill irom nervousness. The detectives seem to be sill at Bea. Every energy is being bent toward un earthing Holmes' medical friend. MORE OX SOLUTES' WORK. Charged With. Betas ike Cause of a Wo- man's Disappearance Chicago, Nov. II. H. H. Holmes, Bow under arrest to - Philadelphia, Is charged wjlh ' being , the cause of the mysterious disappearance of a third woman during his operations in Chi cago. ' That person' Is Miss Kate Dur kee and she Is said to have had con- lderble property. A - year ago Holmes' creditors made a --desperate effort to find out who and where Miss Durkee was. . It was supposed at that time that she was an accomplice of Holmes and that property illegally ob tained was being transferred in her name. ' Suddenly Kate Durkee dropped from sight and, ' like " the ',; Williams sisters,-' has -- left . no trace - behind. George: B. Chamberlain,., proprietor of a mercantile agency, who represents a number of Holmes' creditors, believes ' that Miss Durkee was murdered. '- V Kate .Durkee was the name signed "to a mortgage oh' some real estate of considerable value and the mortgage was turned over to Chamberlain for the benefit of creditors.' Shortly after the mortgage was given to Holmes, at hiB request, to have a clerical error cor-; 'reeted, but the document was never fe iurned. At this time the Misses Wll s & l , - - - Hams disappeared and a search for tfae giver of the mortgage failed to dlsolose any such ' person, although Holmes had given several references. Investigation showed that these people bad met a dark woman "who has been introduced as Miss Kate Durkee," but they did not know her personally.,. - rAbBEXSBR XRAIKS COLLIDE. The Engines Ware Locked. and Badly -Smaahed, Worcester, Mass., Nov. 21. Two pas senger trains on the New England road collided on the main track about a quarter mile from Oxford Station at 6:30 this afternoon. The train going south had orders to pass the north bound train on the siding at Oxford, but through a misunderstanding was on the main traok when the train from Norwich came along at twenty-five miles an hour. - Baggagemaster Charles Wilcox of the waiting train tried to turn the switch and tHrow the on-coming, train on the siding, but failed and a bad wreck fol lowed. The engines were locked and badly smashed, and both mall cars were tele scoped. The injured were: Thomas F. Cur ran, Worcester, Mass., arm and shoul der bruised, ankle sprained; Albert A. Walker, Norwich, engineer, hip bruis ed, back wrenched; Charles G. Davis, Worcester, engineer, -severe scalp wounds; Samuel Jonakowskl, Chtco pee, rendered unconscious and badly bruised. Mr. Jonakowskl was caught on the back of a seat and a drummer's valise, falling from the rack on his neck, pinned him down and injured him severely. , The trainmen had little to say, but that there was negligence somewhere is certain, for passengers in the train from Norwich say the train came near strik ing a freight train near Webster, run ning on the main track Instead of a sid ing, as ordered, in exactly the same way as occasioned the accident atf.'Oxford. - The wreck was cleared by 9 o'clock and trains were delayed only about an hour, passing) the wreck on the Biding.

Stewart the Hon. N. D. Sperry, president of the chamber of commerce, introduced James D. Deweil as the toastmaster of the evening with a few appropriate ' re marks. He said: "This is the one hun dred and first anniversary of the New Haven Chamber of commerce. Since it has been organised it has done much for the city. - I think that our record will at the present time stand equal with' that of any other city of the land. But I give way to others and there fore, turn the whole meeting ove to your distinguished ex-president, James D. Deweil, who will act as the toast master of the evening."' & : Mr. Deweil said: "The chamber of commerce has done me many honors, but never a greater one than asking me to preside to-night over this banquet To use the language, I love not only New Haven, but the New Hayen cham ber of commerce, I am reminded that the tihamber of commerce of New York, older than this by two degrees,' ban-: queted last nighty The first toast' was, "The President of the United States. " They rose and drank to that toast while the band, played "The, Stat Spangled Banner." But we have one with us to night who is especially well fitted' to re spond to that toast He has come to be one of us. I introduce to you as a friend of .the New Haven chamber ef commerce, Joe Haw4ey.55.s;i;2,v:,i .-f Mr, Hawley .spoke In response to the toast, "The United States," in the main as follows: "My first desire and duty is to acknowledge tne kindness . with which you have received me. ; I am sj little disappointed with the dinner thus; ar, "as I thought Mr. Sperry . would, speak longer and) give me an opportuni ty to collect my thoughts.- Ton oertaini iy have .give :me a subject large enough. I hardly know Whether or not to commence with Hooker and Daven- port and bring brine; the history of the country down from them. Shall I treat It seriously or lightly. Ganrlck, when asked Whether tie liked to play tragedy or comedy the better, answered that no matter what mood lie was In he could play tragady, and playing in comedy was a serious business. ' I thought we should find our friend Bromley here to attend to theoomlo aide of the question. "Now I notice that all men are con tinually telling what the country Is going to be: All seem to live In the hope of the future. ' The fathers lived In this thought- There never was any thing which has surpassed In wisdom and foresight the distinction they es tablished between the national and state governments. Everything which pos sesses any local feeling Is left to the state government, . while all that is distinctly national Is left to the national government. And Justly so, because the states are Incompetent, on account of their Individuality, to attend and leg islate on certain matters. Every Amer ican should be proud of the constitution and the body of national law. It seems to be condensed wisdom,. foresight Jus tice and equality. But this country Is driving on with a sense of sureness, too, to a magnificent indescribable. It Is es timated that at the present rate of in crease in thirty years the population of the country wili be 147.000.000. I do not think the present rate of increase ...ill I . T . . . .. ..in wnuuuc, ior i uo not oeueve mat Immigration will continue at Its present rate not that I would desire that the increase In the good, old way will fall off. But it is safe to say that In twenty years our population will be 100,000,000. This country will occupy the first and highest place in the world In physical, mental, moral and Industrial power. If I have any regret that I am alxtv- elght years old. It is that I shall not live to toehold the glory that is to come. I almost wish I was a boy again, like Colonel Osborn or any other of those young gentlemen over there.. "The condition of Europe seems most lamentable to a thoughtful man.

"There are some men who think everything can be accomplished, and managed by organiz."tlom or some scheme which will Insure to them shel ter, food and clothes. We have had one such system in existence in our country. But it went by the name of American slavery. No, my socialistic brother, life Is a race a competition. Every man must fight out his own battle. The way to develop a nation thoroughly. 1b to develop the Individual man. It cannot come by a decree, but must be worked out through long time. Uncle Sam will be lnconquerably the giant among nations and the Stars and Stripes be everywhere welcome." John Addison Porter then responded to the toast, "The Duty of the Public Toward the Press." He prefaced his remarks with a few allusions to some of those present. He referred to John C. Gallagher as a democratic office holder under a republican administra tion. He also said that Governor-elect Coffin had shown his good sense in coming to this non-partisan banquet, rather than to the republican jubila tion last week. He understood that Colonel Osborn was conducting a news paper contest for himself for mayor, and that he had subsidized the opposi tion press. He said many people - looked at their relations with their newspapers In too narrow a light. They think it is enough simply to give their sub scriptions. . A newspaper is not like a factory or a shop, however, run for purely private gain alone. It should be and. generally is the reflex and guide of the community for its amelior ation. By no other means can one so quickly and powerfully reach the great growing' citizens of the country. Colonel N. G. Osborn then responded to the toast, "Apropos of the Schools." He said that he thought there was a tendency toward too much emotion and sentiment and too little business.' The public schools are a- bulwark against illiteracy and have no other Justifica tion for -their existence. He did not believe that the whole people should be taxed for a high school. Rev; Dr. Newman Smyth then re sponded to the toast, . "Business Men and the Higher Interests of the City." He -said that the difference between Hartford and New Haven lay in this: that in. New, Haven the people have pome to a realization of about how bad they are. But up in Hartford they haven't begun to find out anything how bad they are. He also said that 4ny utterance for tjhe moral and social welfare of the city always received the hearty and earnest support of the presa He thought that there was such a thing as' righteous wealth and that the man who rightly managed large capital served the highest public . in terests of the community. - Business sense, power and support should be given to maintain public decency, and that the law should not go unheeded. He. also spoke strongly against-the lobby and In favor of charter revision in this city. , , KENTUCKY WOMEN PRAISED THEIR ACTIONS ARE ENDORSED IS , 7 MEMOLVHONS.

Barker, Chicago, Miss Ackerman, Australia, Madame Chlca Sakaral, Japan, Mrs. Llda Merrtweather, Pennsylvania, and Susan B. Anthony. The convention has been the most successful in the his tory of the union and the delegates are loud In their praise of the hospi tality of Cleveland temperance women. Next year's convention will probably be held in Baltimore, although Kan sas City la a formidable applicant. The decision rests with the executive com mittee. Among the resolutions adopted were the following: Resolved, That we look with alarm at the increasing desecration of the Sabbath and the demands of the liquor traffic for the open Sunday saloon and call upon the executives of the law and others in authority, as well as moral and religious people, to unite In the enforcement of such laws as do exist and to prevent further encroachments of this day of rest We resolve In favor of combined and persistent efforts for securing the en franchisement of .women. Resolved, That the National W. C. T. U. endorses with pride the heroic ac tion of Kentucky women in their de termined overthrow of Impurity in high places. We recommend that each state organ instruct its union to en deavor to secure by law the appoint ment of a committee of men and women who shall pass upon the character and tendency of all public spectacles. We deprecate the social amusements of card playing, theater-going and pro miscuous dancing. . We disapprove of such exercises of such games of football as require the presence of a physician as being In jurious to physical well being and bru talizing in their moral tendency. We protest against the custom of Inter collegiate athletics as demoralising to the legitimate work of college life and calculated to.enwuTage Hhe- enirttx gambling. While friendly 'to all Insti tutions having for their object the res toration of the drunkard, we do. not recognize in them a cure for the sa loon evil. We do not encourage Jocal unions to adopt this work as any solu tion, of the temperance problem so long as the licensed saloon exists. We cjeclare that the employer and the em ployed should unitedly decide what is best for the enterprises which can suc ceed only by their united efforts, but we strongly urge that on these boards 'women should be represented. Resolved, That in order to hasten the complete overthrow of the monster Iniquity, the liquor system, we rejoice the near approach of the time when we shall be able to reinforce .our prayers and moral support by your ballotB, and hereby pledge them to the home protection party, by whatsoever name called. That as women we propose to stand by women to defend their good name and seek the advancement of their interests.
