The Coronado Girl Suicide
She Was Miss Lizzie Wyllie of
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:

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.
One or the Results ot tbe Storm at San
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
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.

The Mudoru Bank Wrecker Given Tem
porary Liberty.
Fresno, Dec. 3.—VV. F. 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. *
He Does Not Expect Any Good to Re

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

"Do you expect anything from the

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

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.

New York, Dec. 3. —The famous
bunco man, Edward Rice, 64 years of
age and white bearded, met J. L. Rap

as he stepped from a western train to
day, and toon made his acquaintance.
Learning Rapstead's intention of visit

along, saying he could get passes and
intended to cross the water soon any
way. The police nabbed Rice before he

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 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
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.
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
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
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.
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
Sort of a Panama Scandal In Military
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.

Berlin, Dec. 3.—[Copyright, 1892, by

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.
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

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

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.
The Vossische Zeitung, referring to
the election of Cleveland, urgeß the
German government to take time by
the forelock and negotiate a reciprocity

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.
