Victoria Woodhull-Martin in
the Political Arena.
She Will Make a Hard Fight
for the Presidency.
Points From Her Letter Accepting'
the Nomination.
Census Snperintendent Porter Conies to
the Rescue of Labor Commission
er Peek—A Political Surprise
In New York.
By the Associated Pro*
Nkw York, Oct. 16.—Mrs. Victoria
Clafnin-Woodhull-Martin, the candidate
of the woman auffragists for president, oi
the United States, arrived tbis morning
on the Etruria, from her English home.
Her husband, John Biddulph Martin, a
London banker and world's fair com
miaaioner from Great Britain, accom
panied the preaidential candidate. They
were driven to the residence of Mra.
Martin's sister, Mrs. Dennis O'Hallern.
Being interviewed, Mrs. Martin said she
waa eager to step once more on the plat
form, after 16 years of retirement, and
preach the gospel of humanitarianiem
of every character Tonight she
and Mr. Martin left for Chicago,
to attend the dedication ceremonies ol
tbe world's fair, immediately aftei
which arrangements will be completed
for campaign speeches, which Mrs
Martin will deliver in Boet.m, New
York, Philadelphia, Chicago and other
large cities.
Mrs. Martin gave out for publication
a letter accepting the nooaiuaticu, ad
dressed to Anna M. Parker and others.
The letter begine by stating that a nom
ination upon a woman suffrage plat
form eommende itself to the writer, es
pecially aa tbe issue ia one which was
originally raiaed and advocated by her,
so long ago ac 1870. Mrs. Martin then
quotes at length from her addresses de
livered during that campaign, in which
she argued that the fourteenth and
fifteenth amendments to the constitu
tion permitted the right of suffrage to
women, and she earnestly commends
all good women to peraistently demand
their rights.
She next proceeda to discuss at some
length the method by which the evils
afflicting society can be corrected. Bhe
sees no salvation, except through an al
most entire revision of the basis lawn of
the Government. She says: "Even the
constitution ot the United States itaeti,
one ot the governmental charters', is '■>
but a relic of old institutions."
It is becoming juntas necessary to con
sider the important subject of breeding
intelligence and physical culture in the
human race, aa it is in the inferior ani
mals. In order to accomplish
such results, new regulatione must
be proposed for aociety. We must sur
round motherhood with the proper con
ditions of our enlightened age. It ia to
women, therefore, that we look for the
regeneration of mankind. The injury to
women, through taxation without repre
sentation, ia only the beginning of a
aeriea of wrongs and persecutions to
which the sex is subjected. lam not an
advocate of woman's rights, in the sense
of unaexing woman. Woman's vote is
the only great weapon of reform. It
would settle the liquor question, and
with woman in politics and saloons
out of politics, what may we
not hope for? But I will
not dilate further, simply presenting
a list of come of the proposed reforms i
under consideration in the humantta
rian platform: Revenue and tariff re
form ; tribunals of health; free courts
of justice for the poor; bureaus of
anthropology connected with all police
stations ; laboratories for the analysis of
impure food and liquids; woman suf
frage; scientific reorganization of the
criminal code; improved dwellings for
the poor; labor tribunals for arbitra
tion ; tbe aristocracy of blood."

Monetary Conference.
Nbw Yobk, Oct. 16.—Hon. Robert T.
Lincoln, United States minister to Eng
land, arrived this morning from Lon
don. He comes to spend his regular
two months' leave of absence. He will
go first to Washington and then to
Chicago, to attend the dedication of the
world's fair.
During tbe afternoon Lincoln received
a number of prominent Republicans, ac
bis apartments in the Holland bouse.
He was rather disinclined to talk for
publication, but at length said, regard
ing the international monetary confer
ence : "I feel I may say Without impro
priety thattheieisa reasonable prospect
of a sufficient departure by England
from her hitherto strictly monometallic
basiß to give great hope of some prac
tical steps being taken by congress for an
increased use of t-ilver, and for its adop
tion by a sufficient nnmber of tbe great
powers. 1 should personally deplore an
attempt by the United States to adopt

is essential.

New York, Oct. 16.—Charles A.
White, who claims to be a representa

at police headquarters, charged with
grand larceny by his wife, who waß
who was formerly Mre. Nagle, daughter
of a wealthy merchant of Cheyenne,
According to White's story of the af
fair, he met Mrs. Nagle at Hot Springs,
Ark., in the summer of 1891, and they
became interested in each other.
He finally made the woman
what he termed a "business
proposition," and offered to marry her
for $100,000. He went to Europe, and
during his absence corresponded with
Mrs. Nagle, who decided to accept his
offer, and co informed White by mail.
According to his story, he at once re
turned to America, and proceeded to
Cheyenne, where they were married.
Previous to tbe ceremony, an attor
ney drew up a regular contract,
in which the bride promised to settle
upon White the amount he asked for.
White says she paid $25,000 in cash, but
still owed $75,000, which she was unable
to raise, and be therefore took securi
ties, which caused his arrest.
According to Mrs. White's story, the
prisoner obtained securities and bonds
worth $150,000 from her, by
means of violence and fraud,
and also practically abducted her
16-year-old son. It is said shortly
alter their marriage, White abused his
wife and compelled her to sign mort
gages on various pieces of property, be
sides forcing her to endorse a note
for $75,000, payable 90 days
after date. He then left his wife, tak
ing with him stocks and bonds belong
ing to her valued at $40,000, and on bis
arrival here converted them into cash
and kept tbe proceeds.
White also disposed of mortgages
signed by Mra. White, but an injunction
granted in Cheyenne prevented the
transfers from being officially recorded
Sheriff Killy, of Cheyenne, who ia
here with requisition papers,says as soon
aa White learned that the Cheyenne
po'ice had complained to Superintend
ent Byrnes about the detention of young
Nagle, he promptly put the boy on a
train and sent him to Rock Island,

The caee was brought to the attention
of the police by a telegram from Chey

A Bold fun lid' nee Game Successfully
Worked on Consal-General Kuiz
of Ecnador - Tha Old
Man Ruined.
New York, Oct. 1(5. —Domingo L. Ruiz,
consul-general of Ecuador, who was ar
rested on tbe charge of forging the name
of Gußtav Preston, a Boston merchant
and vice-consul, to two notes of $-1000
each, waa brought before the police
court today. The proceedings disclosed
that Ruiz, who is in his dotage, is the
the victim of a band of conspirators who
fleeced him out of and in their
greed for more induced him to endorse
two $1000 notes bearing the forged signa
ture of Preston. The principal in the
conspiracy ia eaid to be Mra. Bertha
Laws, the adopted daughter of Ruiz.
Ruiz became acquainted with the
Laws woman through an advertisement,
she answering hia advertisement for a
housekeeper. She waa then known as
Miss Bertha Krimslat, of Stockholm. In
the couiee of a few weeks she persuaded
Ruiz that ehe waa hia daughter by a
former mistrese. Ruiz finally adopted
her aa his daughter. Thiß led to hiß
estrangement with his family, and he
went to live with the woman.
Later, Bertha introduced Wm. Laws,
a bookmaker and general sporting man.
to her alleged father aB her husband.
Ruiz lavished $3i) 1 000 on the woman, but
she needed more, and, acting under her
guidance, Ruiz called on Vice Consul
Preston at Boston and requested a loan
of $3000, Preston cheerfully complied,
and Ruiz and hia adopted daughter re
turned to New York, and she proceeded
to spend the money, which did not last
long, however.
The conspirators then concocted a
echeme to raise more money. Ruiz
states that in August Mrs. L >.we bronght
to him the two $1000 forged notes, and
eaid Preaton,knowing the consul general
was embarrassed, had sent him by mail
the two notes. Ruiz never suspected
them of being forgeries,and at once signed
them. A man named Simon Epstein
advanced tbe money on one of the notes,
and when it was pronounced a forgery,
he foreclosed the mortgage which was
given to protect him, on the furniture
in Mtb. Laws' house, and had the con
sul-general arrested on the charge of
Owing to the absence of important
witnesses the case waß adjourned till
Wednesday and bail given at $2,0110.
The consul's son offered security, bat
the justice could not receive it. To
morrow, however, the money will be de
posited with the city chamberlain and
Ruiz will be released. A warrant was
issued and Mrs. Laws was arrested to
