She Was Miss Lizzie Wyllie of Petroit, From Which Place She Eloped With a Harried Man. She Was Undoubtedly Betrayed and De serted—The Whereabouts of the Author of Her Ruin Is Not Known. Special to the Hkkalp 1 Detroit, Mich., Dec. 3.—Six weeks ■g3 tomorrow, Miss Lizzie Wyllie, daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth Wyllie, njyp teriouely disappeared from ber home. Yesterday the mystery was solved by the identification of the dead body of a young woman found on the beach et San Diego, Cal., last Tuesday, with a bullet-bole in her head, as that of Lizzie Wyllie of Detroit. Miss Lizzie Wyllie and her sister May were formerly em ployed at Winn & Hammond's. John G. Longfield, a married man, waß the foreman. He wan so intimate with Miss Lizzip that both he and the girl were discharged. Shortly before Lizzie dis appeared, Longfield called at the Wyllie residence and bid the whole family good bye. He left the city a few days before Lizzie disappeared. When she left, she said she was going away to look for work and might go as far as California. When Mrs. Wjilie paw the dispatches about the suicide of Lottie Anderson Barnard at San Diego, she telegraphed for a description of the dead girl. It came as foilows: Height, s,'a feet; complexion, fair but. sallow ; medium length of black hair; two small ni'jles on left cheek; broad features, high cheek bones ; brown eyes ; weight, 150 pounde; age, about 20; good teeth ; plain gold rirg on third finger of left hand ; rim; of pure gold, with four pearls and blue stone in center; black corsets; large black hat. Thin was uri exact description of Lz- ; zie. Sho at once telegraphed to htr niece at Pasadena, Cil., who knew Liz zie, to go and see the body. It is con ceded that i/'zzit rati away with Long field. The family cannot account for the $1000 said to have been found on the body, nor her connection with the Ham burg, lows, bank, i-lie was positively penniless when Bhe left here. TALKING OF LYNCHING. San IMeg.ns Th!r*tlrg for tuo Blood of Ci.pt.iin Stliitb. ftntl IndhttO «!oe. By the Associated Pre>s ] San Diego, Dec. 3.—Captain Smith, who is under arrest for the murder of George Neale of the Coronado islands, it is believed, was several times today on the verge of making a confession, but the jaii officials cititioued him to be silent. The schooner San Diego has re turned from a fruitless search in tbe vi cinity of the island, where it was hoped to find-the body of the murdered boy. Willie Silbery, the boy who escaped the fate of his companion, by promising to conceal the crime, gives a graphic Btory of the tragedy. He says he helped Captain Smith to wash away the blood of young Neale, which had been spattered over his bunk, but shrewdly dmitted to remove that which spurted on the ceil ing, leaving this to corroborate the story. He intended to tell on his ar rival in port. There has been 6ome talk of breaking into the jail and hanging not only Smith, but Indian Joe, the Otay mur derer, whose trial ended today also. The jury in the case of Indian Joe has just gone out after a night session de voted to argument. A SCARCITY OF MEAT. One or the Results ot tbe Storm at San Franclseo. San Francisco, Dec. 3. —A great scarcity of fresh meat in the market is one of the results of the prolonged storm, and the stock of live cattle has be«n so generally reduced that prosectß of a serious curtailment in consumption and material advance in prices are being seriously considered. Already some of the slaughterer in Butchertown have been compelled to shut down their slaughter houses in consequence of the dearth of stock, and the available supply of cattle, sheep and hogs in this and ad jacent markets has been bo reduced that many others must cease killing titSiess the eupplies are increased. Reports from interior points of shipment indi cate a serious state of affairs. The wagon roads are all but impassable. In quiries at the retail markets confirm the expectations of a general advance in prices consequent upon the expected short supply. It all depends upon the immediate cessation of the prevailing storm. EXECUTIVE CLEMENCY. Governor Markliam Gives a Wire Tapper His Liberty* Sacramento, Dec. 3.—Governor Mark ham has granted a pardon to William Fallon, sentenced in San Francisco in August, 1890, to serve four years in the county jail. Fallon's crime was at tempting to learn the contents of tele grams while the same were being sent over the wires. Fallen was the victim of the poolroom craze at San Francisco, nnd made an attempt to cut the wires for the purpose of fleecing tbe poolrooms out of money, to gain back the amount which he claims they had robbed him of. Fallon's previous standing is vouched for by numerous business men in San Francisco. An Exciting Football Game. San Francisco, Dec. 3.—Stanford uni versity and the Olympic club football teamß played an exciting game here to day. Stanford had the best of it at first, but the last half was played in the dark, and the Olympics tied the score, which stood 14 to 14, Your fall suit should be made by Geta.

Baird. the Madera bank wrecker, waa released from custody yesterday on $12,500 bail. The transactions of Baird in bringing tbe Madera bank to the verge of ruin are too fresh in the public memory to need repetition. He was caßhier of the bank and issued a number of forged cer tificates and resorted to all sorts of clever devices to hide his crooked work. The grand jury brought in seven indict mentß,eaeh alleging forgery againßt him and John Brown, then preaident of the bank. Baird waa tried first and con victed on two indictments, the others ara atill pending. Baird made applica tion some time ago to be admitted to bail. lie wanted to get out of jail long enough to settle his affairs and realize on some property in order to maintain his wife during his term of imprisonment. His application was granted and his bond placed at $20,000. Thia was fully two months ago. Ilia bond seems to have been too large for I Buird's friends to raise and he continued to languish in jail. Recently new efforts were made in his behalf, and yesterday the bonds on the united cases were reduced to $7500, and cash bail in tbe aurn of $5000 was required on the two charges of which he was found guilty. The bonds of $7500 were signed by a large number of Madera people. The cash was brought into court by O. J. Woodward of the First National bank. The money waa telegraphed by W. Finley, from New York, a relative of Mra. Baird. * THE SILVER QUESTIOiN. REPRESENTATIVE BLAND INTEK VIKWED ON THE SITUATION. He Does Not Expect Any Good to Re sult from the luternalluual Conference—The Sherman Bill Must Go. Washington, Dec. 3.—Representative Bland of Miesouri, chairman of the coinage committee, waa asked by an As sociated Tress reporter what he thought wou'd bo the effect of the failure of tbe international monetary conference to agree on anything. He replied : "I don't see that it \vWld have any effect one way or the other; I don't think the public generally expect much of it." "Do you expect anything from the conference?" •T don't, and (decisively) I never have." "Suppose the conference should fail and the proposition should then be made to repeal the Sherman law, what then?" '"That will be proposed anyway, I pneumi. I ara ia favor of repealing it, if we can't get something better for silver. I don't like Sherman myself." "Do you think there is any prospect of silver legislation?" "I would not like to express any opinion on that, because I do not know how the members feel. From the way they voted last session there is not much proipect of it." "Aside f/om free coinage, what plan can you soegest that would improve the financial situation?" "I would go to work and coin all the bullion which is purchased. It would bu a means by which the deficiency in tho treasury could'be met." A FAMILY DROWNED. I'oar Persons Lose Their Lives in a Swollen Stream. Tlkasanton, Cal., Dec. 3.—lnforma tion has reached here that a family named Nickelson was drowned while trying to ford Arroyo creek. The heavy rains of the past week have caused the creeks in this vicinity to overflow their banks, submerging the adjoining low lands. When Arroyo creek began ris ing Nickel on decided to remove hia family, consisting of hia wife and three children, his sister-in-law and a hired man, from their dwelling, located on a small island in the creek, to the mainland. The swift current overturned tile wagon, throwing the oc cupants into the water. Mrs. Nickelson and her little daughter were swept away and drowned. The father endeavored to save one of hia sona, but was himself overcome, perishing, with the latter, in the swollen stream. The hired man, by a desperate effort, succeeded in drawing the remaining son and Mra. Nickelson's sister to land. A searching party has recovered the bodies of Nickelson and hia 11-year-old son, but those of Mrs. Nickelson aud her daughter have not been found. ONLY THREE NOES. Monrovia Increases Its Water Debt by an Overwhelming Vote. Special to the Hkrald. MoNßOvm, Cal., Dec. 3.—The lower ing disposition of the cloudß thia morn ing brought out nearly all tbe electors of this city to vote at the special election for the additional bond of $30,000 for the development of water, in addition to the $40,000 just expended. The vote car ried, 114 to 3. The citizens are jubilant, and anxious to know who the three voters are who have voted against in creasing the debt. Apparently a Scoundrel. Indianapolis, Ind , Dec. 3.—The trial of the libel Buit of Eli Ritter, the Pro hibition leader, against Leonard Hinkle, terminated this evening with a verdict for the defendant. About the time Rit ter'e name waß mentioned for the Pro hibition nomination for President. Hinkle issued a broadcast circular, in which he denounced Ritter as a scoun drel unworthy of confidence. The amount demanded by Ritter was $10, --000. A Famous Bunco Man Nabbed. New York, Dec. 3. —The famous bunco man, Edward Rice, 64 years of age and white bearded, met J. L. Rap stead, a wealthy Montana ranch owner, as he stepped from a western train to day, and toon made his acquaintance. Learning Rapstead's intention of visit ing Germany, Rice proposed to go along, saying he could get passes and intended to cross the water soon any way. The police nabbed Rice before he go any farther. THE CRISIS IN FRANCE. A Great Constitutional Ques- tion at Stake. Difficulty Experienced in Bann ing a Cabinet. M. Rurgeois Called Upon to Under- take the Task. The Panama Canal Lottery Investigat ing; Committee Disposed to Over step Its Rights—Sensa tional Disclosures. By the Associated Press. Paris, Dec. 3. —The present crisis is not merely political, but one in which a great constitutional question is at stake. The Panama canal investigation com mittee shows a disposition to overstep its eonatuutional rightp, and the refusal of Public Prosecutor Beaupaire to give up documents to be used in tbe investi gation is approved by all who have not lost their heads over the Panama canal affair. Had M. Brisson, aa the head of the committee of investigation, been successful in forming a cabinet, his suc cess would have been interpreted aB the acceptance by the deputies of the committee's illegal policy, the result of which it would have been im possible to foresee. The general appre hension over the event has maguified the pretensions of the committee into aiming at establishing itself into port of a committee of public safety, with des potic power. The news of Casimir Perrier'a failure to form a cabinet was received with general regret. President Carnot to night sent for M. Bourgeois and asked him to make au effort to form a min istry. M. Bourgeois's decision has not yet been announced. If he refuses or fails_in the attempt, M. De Freycinet and Tirard are the next favorites. Perier gave*up the task of forming a cabinet, because the men he wanted would not accept the places tendered. THE LOTTERY INVESTIGATION, The investigating committee yes te, day heard M, Cantagrel, another member of the committee, on tbo lottery scheme. He declartd that an employe of the Panama Canal company offered him first 100,000 francs, then 200,000, finally 500,000, if he would vote for the lottery bill. The committee charged its chairman, M. Brisson, to forward to the minister of the interior the public prosecutor's letter concerning the Thierre checks, and the request t.rat the checks be seized bythe prefect of police. Charles De Lesseps writes to hi Jour, denying the truth of the statement made by M. Cantagrel at yesterday's ex amination that an employe of the canal company offered him a bribe If he would vote for the lottery bill. THE CHECKS SEIZED. Clement, commissary of police, has delivered to the Panama canal commit tee the 2(1 checks that Thierre handed Baron Reinach, and which the latter deposited in the Bank of France in the name of a firm oi coulieeiers. These checks, which represented a total sum of 3 391 '.'75 francs, were exchanged with Baion Reinach by Thierre for a single check drawn upon the Br.nk of France by tbe Panama Canal company, The police seized these checks this morning, in accordance with the suggestion made to the committee yesterday by Beau oaire, the public prosecutor. The checks were found at Thierre's office. The committee spent the day in examining them. The committee decided not to divulge the names of the payees, but the members of the committee were author ized to declare that no member of the chamber of deputies was among them. Each check bore only one signature and endorsement. Tbe committee will keep these names secret until the payees are heard iv explanation. Domiciliary visits will be made at the residences of each of the payees in order to verify their identity. THE PAYEES OF THE CHECKS. The names of the payees of the Thierre checkß leaked out through M. Cornelius Her/,, a well known Parisian, now in London, who received two checks, each for 2,000,000 francs. He telegraphed to the committee of inquiry that his checks were received from Baron Reinach in payment of a debt; M. Chabert received 3,350,000 francs; Senator Renault received 40,000 francs, and Albert Grevy, Bon of ex- President Grevy, received 20,000 francs. The other payees are preetieally un known, the names given—like that of a bank porter, Darouet, who is credited with receiving a check for 800,000 francs—being, it is supposed, merely used to cover the identity of tbe actual recipients. Senator Renault, In testify ing before the committee this afternoon, explained that the checks bearing his name were received in payment of a debt. constans' denial. M. Constans has written a letter to the president of the Panama canal in vestigation commission, denying the statement made by a witness before the committee that he (Constans) bought papers relating to the Panama Canal company. Constans deplores the readi ness of some persons to bring discredit upon the republic. ISIUUE TAKERS TO HE PUNISHED. The municipal council of Paris has adopted a resolution demanding that, eevere penalties be imposed upon all deputies who accepted bribes. An Electoral Steal iv Oregon. Salem, Ore., Dec. 3.—Mandamus pro ceedings were commenced this after noon before Judge Bennett to prevent the secretary of state from counting the vote of Pierce, Populist-Democratic elector, in the counties in which his name appeared twice on the official bal lot, and to command Governor Pen noyer to issue a certificate of election to Harry B. Miller, the Republican elector. Tbe judge ordered a writ to issue, and an order was made for the governor and secretary to comply with the prayer of the petitioner, or show cause for not so doing. SIXTEEN PAGES—I TO 8. PRICE FIVE CENTS. A PRUSSIAN SENSATION. Sort of a Panama Scandal In Military Circles. Bublin, Dec. 3.—Prussia today found its Panama Ecandal in the Moabite criminal court, when, after having been tainted for lack of veracity, Rector Ahl wardt produced five official documents which proved to be reports* made by colonels to generals adverse to the Lowe guns. These must have been stolen, probably by an officer, who, if found out, is liable to 10 years,' penal servi tude. A greater scandal or more sensa tional episode could not have occurred. The army oflicers, who were pres ent in large numbers, were aeliast; at first they looked incredulous, but when the judge examined the docu ments and pronounced them authentic their dismay knew no bounds. Tele graphic messages were at once sent to the emperor, who is shooting in Saxony, to apprise him of the startling develop ments and the blow which had fallen on the army. The documents show that out of 900 Lowe guns used at Weeel, 590 were unserviceable. Twenty of the chambers are burst and broken entiieiy. It mutt be remembered that there are 425(000 Lowe guns in the German army. This ia terribly awkward for the govern ment, which is bound by necessity to do everything to hush up the scandal.

GERMAN CABLE LETTER. CIIANCELLOR CAPRI VIS POSITION STRK MGTtTENBD, Prominent Party Leaders Pledged to Support the Army Hill-Papal Interference Resented by the Center Party. Berlin, Dec. 3.—[Copyright, 1892, by the New York Associated Prees.]— Eventa in the reichatag and p.irty move ments, which are lesa seen by toe pub- lie, all tend to eolidify Chancellor Yon Capri"is position and assure tbe pass age of tbe army bill. The Freisinnige and Bismarckian papers pretend to be lieve the position is unten able. Every day the opposition pro duces a freah rumor as to who his suc cessor will be. The fact is tbe chan ceilor'a position haa become strength ened by the open adhesion of some party leaders and the private adhesion of others. Dr. Buhl, National Liberal, haa won the chancellor's tbankß by promising that bis patty will support all the military demands necessary for the safety of the empire. Herr Kosciel eki, in the name of the Polith group, an nounced that they would vote to grant anything, so far aa the financial depres sion permitted, that would contribute to unite and strengthen Germany. PAPAL INTERFERENCE RESENTED. With regard to the Centre party, it is no longer a secret that a majority of the members of the group, resenting the Vatican's pro-French policy are treating the clerical attempta to influence the party to defeat the government's schettio of army reorganization, aa a hostile in trigue against German unity. | So marked is the feeling of many Centrists againßt the interference of the Vatican, which are attributed to the pope's hos tility to the triple alliance, that'eertain Catholic bishopß have advised Cardinal Rampolla, the papal secretary of Btate, that a revolt of the party against cleri cal lead waa imminent if interference waa persisted in. The Vatican hatj con sequently assented to leaving the Centre pßrty free to follow whatever course it pleases. THE XEW EMIGRATION MEASURE. The emperor's bill against immorality and the emigration measure will be taken up by the reichstag when the dis cission of the budget is ended. When scrutinized, the restrictive clauses of the proposed emigration law do not seem likely to operate so favorably aB was ex pected in sending a good class of emi grants to America. Well-to-do, orderly people wiii object to the preliminary police supervision and the disclosure of their private affairs demanded under the bill, while criminals, frauds and im poverished persons can go acioss the frontier and sail from a foreign port without interference from the police. The mysterious disappearance of Prince Karl of Bavaria ia now known to he due to a liaison with a pretty ballet girl. The regent of Bavaria disapproved of it; thereupon the prince applied for permission to contract a morganatic marriage with the girl. The regent re fused and was making arrangements to send the prince off on a journey abroad, when Karl and the danseuee secretly left the city. The pair were traced to a secluded retreat in the Alps and brought back to Munich. A PROPOSED The Vossische Zeitung, referring to the election of Cleveland, urgeß the German government to take time by the forelock and negotiate a reciprocity treaty, admitting American products, such as wheat, cotton, pork, meats and leather, into Germany free of duty, in return for a reduction of the American tanir on German manufactured goods.
