New York, Sept. !ii?Did Samuel W.
Thornton, of No. 277 Cumberland
utroct, Brooklyn, and his sister-in-law,
Miss Eva Jewell, elopo, or la it true, as
they claim, that they were carried out
to sea while bathing at Coney Island,
picked up by a Spanish vessel and
landed on the Florida coast? This is
the question that is agitating the minds
of their friends. If their own story is
true they aro tho hero and heroine of
omi of tho strangest nuvunturos on
record, and tlieir experience would
form tlic basis of a thrilling novol. But
there aro some circumstances winch
se'em to point to tho fact that they
elopud and had left theirclothiug in the
bath house at Coney Island to inako it
appear that they had been drowned.
Winding up in Florida without money,
they desired to return home, and, Mr.
Thornton beinga married man, invented
the story above referred to. 1
The ease is certainly a mysterious
one and is ouo of tho most interesting
social sensations that have como to
light for a long while. it is the talk
of Brooklyn. Tho story related by Mr.
Thornton and Mies Jewel! in Jacksonville,
Ha., is substantially as follows:
TIIE1H Tlinil.I.ING fliouv.
In tho afternoon of August 27, they
went to Coney Island together, and
about 2 o'clock secured bathing suits
and went into tho snrf. Thornton
could swim; Miss Jewell could not.
Suddenly a big wavo took them off
their feet and drew them out Into deep
water. There was no other bathers
within 200 feet of them, and their cries
for help were not heard above the roar
of tho surf. Miss Jewell clutched frantically
at Thornton's arms and slioul-'
dors, and he found it impossible to
swim toward tho shore with lior. Tho
current swept them rapidly out to sea.
The girl had also swallowed salt water
and was strangling badly. In this condition
they drifted for twenty minutes
or more, wllen a flouting log attracted
Thornton's attention. Ho made for it
nml to thtH tho two clunc for dear lifo
until nearly dark when n Spanish bnrk,
which luuf just worked through the
Narrows, bound for South America,
picked them up.
Miss Jewell fainted as soon as she
reueheil the vessel's deck, and it was
midnight bofore the captain and his
wife, with the assistance of Thornton, |
brought her to her senses. Then she
became dolirious and lay in a high
fevor for live days botween life and
death. On the sixth day the fovor
turned and tho young woman gradually
recovered. Meanwhile tho snip had
gone rapidly on her course, and all
chances of sending tho castaways back
to Now York had been lost. Neither
Thornton nor Hiss Jewell can recall the
uamo of tho bark. It was n Spanish
name and tho captain and crow could
not speak any English. They supplied
their passengers with clothes, however,
mid treated them kindly. < In September
I) they spoke a Spanish vessel bound
for Yucatan. Iler captain said that ho
was going to mako the pnssago through
the straits of Florida, and he agreed to
tako tho castaways aboard and land
thorn on tho Florida coast at tho first
' opportunity. They were transferred to
this vessel," the crow of tho llrstvossol
making up n purse of $lf> for them lie(uru
they loft It.

only one house there. Here they got
breakfast and started to walk to Jacksonville,
twenty miles distant. They
got a ride in a cracker's" wagon part
of the way and reached Jacksonville
about noon'Saturdtiy. Thornton wont

his brother in Brooklyn of his plight,
asking for money to get homo with,
and tiien the pairwent to the St. John's

newspaper yarn, iesterday
morning the name mnn . sent
$50 to Jacksonville. Ilia brother-in-law,
Claude Styles, employed in the New

the safe-combination test to

i night. Samuel tolegruphed tho figure*.

ANOTHER HIDE TO TIIE ROMANCE.
Cut there is another side to tlio
I rnmanon wliir>li If It tlirn* ollt to bo
true, will likely result iu some sensational
developments. It appears in
the following dispatch from Jacksouville,
Flo., in the JJeraUl: >
It looks very much ns though the
story told by Samuel \Y\. Thornton anil
Miss Kva Jewell, of Brooklyn, N. V.,
about being carried out to sea while
bathing at Coney Island, of being picked
tip by a Spanish bark, of being tran.slerred
to another Spanish bark, and
then being put ashore on the Florida
coast, twenty miles from Jacksonville,
was nothing more nor less than u cunning
scheme to save their reputations
now that they desire to go home.
This forenoon Thornton received the
$50 telegraphed by his brothor and at
once made arrangements to go north
this ovening.
Conductor Barr, of the Pullman car
Kincon, which left 2few Orleans last
Friday night and arrived in this city
about half-past eight o'clock Saturday
evoning, told me that both Thornton
and Miss Jewell wore passengers on his
?.?% if.n iournev.
Kditor Carter, of tho Jacksonvitlo Ev,ninn
Afttrupolis, was also on the train.
vVJicii they read the descriptions of
Thornton an<l Miss Jewell they immediately
recognized them as the couple

The moment she entered anu met the
conductor face to face a peculiar,
I startled exclamation cscapod lier. She
sank nervously on a seat and became
I deathly pnle.
I "I havo come to ask for some partiouLirn
about this thrilling tale of the
I sea," said Mr. Carter.
I "Oh, I don't know what to say," Miss
Jewell replied, clasping lior hands ncr|
vously.
! Then, apparently collecting her
thoughts as she saw alio was recognized,
| sho continued: "I won't talk to you.
I .See Mr. Thornton and he will tell you
, all."
I With this remark she tied to her
room across the corridor.
I Wo could not seo Thornton and de!

so. We were absent less than half an

I Miss Jewell coming down the steps.

I faces flushed. Thov wore much disconcerted
and plainly endeavored to
I avoid us.
I "This is Mr. 13arr, who knows you,"
I I said to Thornton.
"I nover say you before in my life,"
! exclaimed Thornton, looking at Barr.
i "You are entirely mistaken, sir."
I "Nor I either," Miss Jewell added.
I "And I," returned the conductor,
"am just as positive that you were both

HUMS OK TUB IDENTIFICATION,
This is the story Paul D. Barr, the
Pullman car conductor, tells me:
"I came in .from Montgomery early
this morning and had gone to my room
when I thought I would read the newspapers
before I went to sleep. I read
the story of Thornton and his companion
and when I came to the description
of them it struck me that this was the
couple I had seen. 1 said to mvselfthat

in my sleeper from Now Orleans Friday
night. The description tallied exactly
with the two passengers. That man and
woman wore in my ear without a shadow
of a doubt. I should' have recognized
them in darkest Africa. They got
into the car at the station in New Orleans.
They had no sleeper tickets and
I asked them to get these beforo they
took seats. The man went hack to the
Pullman ofllco and bought one berth,
lower 7. Thoy were in the car from
Friday night until Saturday night?
about twenty-four hours.
