NEW HAVEN, CONN., FRIDAY DECEMBEK 9 1904. THE CAREINGTON PUBLISHING CO. MRS. CHADWICK FLIGED IN CELL IN THE TOMBS ALL-OAT SEARCH FOR $15,000 BOND FRUITLESS Her Lawyers and Sob Hustle Until 0 o'clock at Night to Get It bat Finally Have to Give Up Another Effort to lie Made To-day Request That Maid be Allowed to Stay With Her Re fusedTo be Treated Same aa Other Prisoner Denies She la Madame De Vare. ' New York, Dec 8. Mrs. Cassie D. Chadwick is to-night occupying one of the scantily , furnished cells in the Tombs. After a fruitless search all day for bail, her attorneys gave up the fight to-night, and Philip Carpenter, ber chief counsel, after a final effort to secure the fifteen thousand dollars ne cessary for her release, stood in , the corridor of the Federal building at nine o'clock , when United States , Marshal 1 Henkel threw" open the doors of his of fice and led the woman out on her way to prison. ! Mrs. Chadwick was wan, tired and almost fainting. She made her way across the hall to the elevator, leaning heavily on the marshal's arm and on that lof her son Emil. Behind them Tcame her nurse, Freda Swenson, ,and Deputy Marshal Kennedy. , The party passed through a double row of curious people to a carriage which was In waiting on the Broadway side- - They were driven directly to the Tombs. Arriving there Mrs. Chadwick was half carried up the steps and into the building. 'Warden Flynn met the party and after the usual preliminaries had been attended to the woman asked permission to have her nurse remain with her. . This was denied, the warden Baying that she should have no privi leges not allowed other prisoners. Mrs. Chadwick gave a hand bag and a few trinkets to the nurse and whis pered some instructions to her son. Marshal Henkel formally turned over his prisoner to the warden and she was taken to the matron's room. She asked to say good-night to her son, and the lad eagerly .rushed to his mother and embraced her. Then she was led away to the inner office, where her pedigree was taken and she was assigned to a cell. The son and nurse entered a car riage and were driven to a hotel. While on a couch In the United States marshal's office awaiting a bondsman, Mrs. Chadwick, for the first time since her name has been before the public, consented to ;talk for publication and gave a representative of the Associated Press a statement In which she denied relationship to Mrs. York, of San Fran cisco, who gave out an Interview to day telling of the earlier life of Mrs. Chadwick. Mrs. York said Mrs. Chad wick ;. was her sister and that Mrs. Chadwick was Madame De Vere, the forgeress. In justice to. her son, Mrs. Chadwick said she, would make no statement about "this Madame de Vere business" at the present time, but promised that later "Madame de Vere's whereabouts and everything else In connection with this, case will be shown." Mrs. Chadwick also told of the Wade Park's Oberlln bank matter. Referring to the failure of the latter institution she said: "I would not like to live a minute if I did not think I could pay these poor people back." When asked concerning Andrew Car negie's connection with her financial affairs she declined absolutely to talk, referring her interviewer to her coun sel, v.''.' . . This has no doubt been one of the most momentous days in Mrs. Chad wick's history. It commenced with her early, departure from her hotel for the Federal building, and ended with her incarceration in the Tombs. ' In the interval she had been ar raigned before United States Commis sioner Shields and held in fifteen thou sand dollars bail, which she was una ble to furnish. All day long lawyers representing her interests had sought in every quarter for some one owning real estate in Manhattan who would sign her bond, and the marshal had, out of sympathy for the woman, kept her in his office hours after she should have been removed. The endeavors of the lawyers were unsuccessful, render ing her imprisonment necessary. " ' To add to Jier cup of woe, it was learned to-night that a charge of for gery would very likely be made against the woman in Ohio, based on the Car negie notes and other papers given as securities for loans. Efforts to get ball will continue to morrow, although Mrs. Chadwick ex lressed the desire to-night to go ; to Cleveland as soon as possible. She said she would go there volimtarlly were it not for the contrary advice of counsel. Mrs. Chadwick dined at seven o'clock to-night in Marshal Henkel's office un der conditions in -strange contrast to the manner in which she lived at the New York hotels. Her dinner consist ed of an orange, a ham sandwich and a piece of cake, brought to her by her son from a Broadway lunch counter. She lay on a hard leather couch in a room filled with desks, chairs and file cases. A deputy marshal stooct watch while her nurse took the meagre lunch from a paper bag and peeled the orange. Emll sat by in silence and ate a few bites of a sandwich and the nurse dried her tears long enough to taste the lunch counter fare. The three unfortunates had nothing to say to each other. .Occasionally Mrs. Chadwick sobbed and the nurse leaned over her mistress and smoothed her gray hair. Mrs. Chadwlck's face was much-inflamed, her eyes were red and her hands trembled violently as she pushed away the remains of the food and motioned Freda to give her a" pack .(Continued on Third Page.) , ROCKEFELLER'S MINISTER. Through Him That Mrs. Chadwick Met Banker Newton. Cleveland, O.; Dec. 8. It was through Rev. Charles A. Eaton, pastor of the Euclid Avenue Baptist church of this city that Mrs. Cassie Chadwick be came acquainted with Banker Newton, of Brookline, Mass. The introduction was made through a Boston attorney, who is a relative of Dr. Eaton. The clergyman 'made the following' state ment regarding the matter .in the fol lowing communication, dated at Louis ville, Ky., which was received here to day: '' .. "' - ''A - ;:".: - "Briefly stated, all I know about the Chadwick case is this: Some time last winter or spring Mrs. Chadwick appear ed unbidden and unknown at my office, and, as hundreds of strangers do, asked for my advice. : '-. . : "My advice was to place her affairs unreservedly 61 the hands of lawyers or business men of integrity for settle ment, and I sent her to several firms in which I had and have now the utmost confidence, telling them frankly what little I knew about the woman, and that I had advised her to place her en tire affairs with them for settlement. . "Since then I have known nothing about hervmovements except by hear say, nor do I remember having seen or heard of her before that occasion. . "Mrs. Chadwick never attended a church service in the Euclid avenue Baptist church, within my knowledge, and has never given a dollar to our work, directly or Indirectly. She is not now, and never has been connected In any way with my church, or With Its pastor, other than as stated above." ; : The statement Is printed here that Banker Newton's hope to secure a set tlement for his claim was due to the fact that Dr. Eaton was John D. Rock efeller's pastor, and that the latter would relieve from embarrassment his favorite clergyman by paying Newton all that was owed him.. AXOTHER ANDREW CARS EG IE.

S. Mellen, president of the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad, in which the latter denied that his company had any negotiations for the purchase of the Lehigh Naviga tion company.

In the letter to Mr. Fowler he says: "Mr. Dickson has talked with me to day regarding the Lehigh Coal and Navigation company's property. It is a matter that is in a large measure new to me and I have had no opportunity to confer with my directors regarding the same, but I certainly feel it Wise! you should proceed with the matter to the'extent that you can lay before me for submission to my people a definite propostion with your recommendation in the premises. I am not prepared to express an opinion, for I have had no opportunity -to discuss the subject, but I certainly believe our people, with their large Interest In your company, will be disposed to favor . anything that, will promote its earnings and prosperity. ; "Very truly yours, (Signed) Charles S. Mellen, President." Mr. Earle closes with a vindication of Mr. Riley, president of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation company, and says: ' "To this hour, I have not had the slightest thought that Mr. Fowler was in Mr. Mellen's class, and I have not and I hope I shall never have cause to suspect a single statement that he made."

Most Sensational Decline In Prices Since Historic Northern Pacific Panic of May 0, 1901 Amalgamated Copper First to Give Way Steel Follows General Rally Occurs Accompanied . by Quiet Close. New York, Dec. 8. Amid scenes of uncontrolled excitement and frenzied haste to sell securities, the New York Stock Exchange to-day witnessed the most sensational decline irk prices that it 'has known since the historic North ern Pacific panic of May 9, 190-L Warned by the signs of the coming storm jpade visible yesterday in' the preponderance of orders to sell over those to buy, the traders were early on the . floor of the exchange. When . th gong sounded for the opening of busi ness , there came from the struggling groups of brokers on the crowded floor a roar of human voices so loud that it startled and thrilled all who heard it At first it seemed that all were sellers and that none were left to buy. As the shrieking men surged around the trad ing posts the "impending important de velopments" In this stock, "the possible increase of dividend on another," the "coming agreement with its principal rival", of a third, or whatever were the bull arguments on which advances were based, were all forgotten and brokers sought only to get rid of the stocks 1 they held. The scene was ob served by a .throng of visitors in the gallery. ; First to give way in the hurly-burly was Amalgamated! Copper, against which a campaign by a newspaper ad vertisement has recently been conduc ted. Dropping some times a point at a time it fell until it sold at 58 1-2, a de cline of ten points since last night's close and twenty-two points from the highest of Tuesday.
