New VoRKf Doc. 5.?The death of
>Irs. Edith Armstrong better known aa
"Dovie1' Comstock, in a Kansas jail
ends a strange career of a beautiful and
notorious woman. 8he was the daughter
of D. 0. Forney, founder of the
Washington Ohroniclo, and a niece of
John W. Forney, of Philadelphia.
All tboae who knew "Dovie" Comatock
in her childhood speak of her
dainty beauty. The name was given
uer because it fitted her. She was a
laughing, wayward child. It seemed
nataral that she should fall in love
with Walter G. Comstock, of Providance,
who was rich and handsomo and
young. Ilia father was very rich. Ho
is a near rolativo of the Armours, and
wai in the wholesale meat business,
'lhey lived In Providence, on Pnrlds
avenue, in the finest house in the aristocratic
Jil wood section. They plunged
it once into tho social whirl. It was
sot long before she gathered about her
a coterie of young men, many of them
not in tho fashionable set. These young
men drank quantities of wine. Young
j Comstock was at first delighted with
the homage paid his wife. Thon his
avau ntiAnnd And hncrot a divorce.
it is said that the co-respondent was
Samuel Post, the man who we* killed
by Ella Nelson. Some time aftor tbo
divorce Mrs. Uomstoclc came to New
York and lived in various hotels. In
July, 1890, ibe moved to No. 344 Smith
itroet, Brooklyn. It was thero sho met
Theodore Larbig, who lost his life
| through her. He was forty-three yeurs
of age, a man who had seen life. Conitant
intercourse with many people,
coupled with checkered and valuable exI
oenonco in California, had given him a
' certain polish. But it wa? his great
strength and 8oU-confident manner
which attracted Mrs. Comuock. He became
a constant visitor to ber flat when
ho was in town.
In May sho moved to No. 278 Sackett
street and took as a boarder Darwin J.
Moterole, son of General Meserole. She
had known Moierole several years and
had been very intimate with "him. On
June 27, 1891, Larbig called at tho
house and began quarreling with. Mrs.
Comstock. Moserolo interfered and a
fight ensued, in which Moaerole shot
and killed Lurbig. The trial attracted a

was acqaittod. William J. Gnynor was
counsel for the defense.
Tea months later "Dovie" was marriod
to John L. Watkius and a short
timo afterward she wont weet. Being a
victim of the opium habit, her down*
fall was rapid.
The Kansas City World of Monday
gives the foilowiug'account of the death
ef the unfortunate woman in the county
jail in that city:
! Mrs. Edith Armstrong, alias Mary
Anderson, alias Welden, alias Miller,
elins Darnell, was found dead in her cell
in the connty jail at 8:30 o'clock yesterday
morning. It is thought that hor
death was due to an abrupt cessation of
opiates, as she was a olave of morphine
And opium and had committed a number
of thefts to obtain the drugs; For
several days she?had not used morphine,
and she had told the prieoners
in the women's cell that she would
either cease using opiates or die in tho
attempt. Last Friday she waa taken ill
and she declared to May Plunkett that
she believed she would die as a result of
ino aoanaonmor.t ui opium. ono um
taken with a high fever, and the other
prisoners told the jail officials. A physician
would have been summoned, but
elio refusod to see one. She was tenderly
cared for by a fellow-priBoner, May
l'lunkott, who had become attached to
I the unfortunate woman.
The deceased was last aeon alive at 3
o'clock yesterday morning when she
feebly called to May Plunkett, who had
been detailed to care for her. She wont
to tho sufferer's coll. The sick woman's
lipB wora parched and she begged for
something cooling. May Plunkett had
nothing but an apple," but ahe pared
this and, scraping some of the fruit
fine, applied it to the dying woman's
lips. .She mado her companion go back
to bod and was quiet for a while. About
6 o'clock she bogaa to sing. The women
prisonorB awoko and listenod. Tho song
died away in a moan and all was quiet
Hiram.
At 6 o'clock tho prisonoro were
aroused. May Plunkett lookod into tho
fick woman's" cell and thought she was
asleep. At 8:30 an attempt was mado
to arouse her. .She wai doad.
Edith Armstrong was committed to
thecountv inil bv Justice Krueeer No

THE KAISKK'8 HPBRCH
At tli* Opening ot th? ?I>?dlcn- 1
lionof t)i*? Netr lJulldliif.
Wtt Dee, 5.?Emperor William,
wearing a British uniform, visited the i
l'rince of ,Walei and the Duke of York i
thia moraine and tlie two latter returned t
his majesty's visit an hour later. They
then started for England. Emperor r
William thon donned a Prussian uniform
and prepared to open the Belch- .
stB*. ,
'i'tie radicals ate furious that tho |
monarcn does noi come to parliament, j
but, instead ho muit so to the castle for
the ceremony. The suasion of the
IteichstAg was oponed at noon in the
liitter snnl of the castle instead of the
usual white hall, which is being renovated.
Emperor William in peraon read his
speech from the throne. It ia as lollows:
"Honorable Gentlemen?in the namo
of my exalted allies I bid you welcome
at the beginning of your conatitutlonal
work. You will transfer your labors to
your new home, which, after ton years
of earnest work, is now upon the point
oi completion, a monument of our national
industry. May God's, blessing
rest upon the houee and may the greatness
and welfare of the empire bo the
goal for which ail are called upon to
work within its walls will aim, with self
denying loyalty. I entertain this wish
all the more strongly in view of the
economic and social political tasks
which must be solved with your cooperation.
"Faithful to the traditions oi oar ancestors,
my exalted allies and myself regard
it as our foremost duty to the state
to protect the weaker classes and to assist
them in obtainiug higher economic
and moral development. The duty ot
the state becomes the more imperative
as the atruirgla for exiatence upon the
part of cortaio sections of the peoplo
grows more serious. The federal governmonte
will continue their ofiorta to
promoto footings of content among the
peoplo by mitigating economic and so*
cial differences.
"In consequence of the change in the
financial situation to the disadvantage
of tho individual statea, which instead
of receiving, as heretofore, surplusos
from the imperial revennes, have lately
been called upon to contribute to the
imperial expenditure, the creation of
fresh sources of revenuo has becomo
necessary. This ODpressive state of af?
fairs can only be Dartially remedied by
an increase of the stamp tax and the
opening of other fresh sources of revenuo
is indispensable. To this end abill
for the reform of the tobacco taxation
will be submitted to you.
"To my lively satisfaction, my confi- c
dence in the maintenance of European
I'ouud iiu3 uuok 'ui vnoi nviautt?iiOiiou c
during tho past few years. Faithful to p
tho spirit of our alliances, we cultivato 1
pood and friendly relations with all tho t
powers. In the death of the Emperor j
of Russia<I deplore the loss of a friend e
and u tried co-operator in works of e
peaco." a
His majesty afterward wont to the
Reichstag building, in order to formally 1:
perform the ceremony of laying its cor- t
nor-stone, which is combined with the i
dedication of the building, and the for- j
mal opening of the new session of the s
Reichstag. Immense crowds of people 3
were gathered along the route and out- v
side of the now building, and cheered t
the emperor and the German reigning n
princos on their way thore and upon o
their arrival Prince Hohenlohe. the I
chancellor, and Field Marshal Blue- 1:
menthal, chief of the general staff of tho t
Prussian army, who is about eighty
years of age, were acoorded an especially
warm welcome from the people. The
dedication ceremonies passed oft
without a hitch.
~The absence of General Von Caprivi,
the formor chancellor, at the ceremon- e
ios was much commented npon. d

Several Knffngeuientft Reported by tlie
Japanese Field tfnritlin!.
HrnosnrsfA, Dec. 5.?A dispatch from
Field Marshal Yamagata, dated A ntong,
December 3, says that the Japanese
ecouting party sent in the direction of
Liu Shan Kwan engaged the Chinese
outposts on the summit of ^lotien Ling
on November 15. One Japanese soldier
was killed and threo wero wounded.
The scouting party was afterwards reinforced
and occupied a position at
Sokako, where it was attacked by the
enomy in large force. Over forty
Japanose were killed in this engage*
tuuut.
A company ot infantry sont to reconnoitre
Kwan Tien and Saibashu was
attacked by a large force of Chiuese ou.
Novembor*20 at Tasikow, and was compelled
to retreat with the loss of several
killed.
Fiold Marshal Yamagata adds that
measures have been taken to clear tho
ivmntrv around Kwan Tien and Saiba- 5
shu. Tho dolnchwonta under General
Taciiimi and Colonel Nissvinia have \
reached their destinations after meeting n
with slight resistance. They attacked j
tho enemy at Saikabo ou November 13, ;
and compelled the Chinese troops to retiro.
Tho two detachments are now returning
to Antona.
Humor* of nu Armistice.
Shanghai, Doc. 5.?It is rumored hero
that a ten days' armistice has been ar*
ranged botweon China and Japan, and
it is said that the terms of poace which
aro still under negotiation are to include
nn indemnity and the formation of a
buffer state consisting of the country

fears the winter more than Japan an
the flupplios of rice have been kept back

und sensational crime in the hisory
of the northwest is the murder of
Wis Catharine Goat;, which was an*
lounccd in these dispatches yoiterday.
Miss Gong, who wan a dressmaker,
van twenty-nine yearn of aire and of
itriking beauty. Her bruised remains
ie cold in death upou a marble slab
n the morgue in this city, a victim
i ther to the repacity of a highway rob*
>er or the vengeful vindictiveness of a
ealou* and frenzied lover. Beaten and
cangled out of all semblance to their
ormer perfect outlines, tho features of
he dead woman seem mutely appealng
for the pity denied her by the cruel
nurderer, who, seeing the bullets had
ailed entirely to snuff tho spark of life,
lompleted bis foarful work with the
>utt of a piatol.
A young man named Harry T. Hayvard,
who was laid to have had busiieaa
dealings with .the. murdored
voman, was examined by the police in
lours last night He admitted having
iad dealings with Miss Gong, and said
le had loaned her at various times
arge sums of money. lie held her perlonal
notes for $5,000 and stated that
ihe had not long ago taken oat an accilent
policy of $5,000 which was astigned
o him. Beyond this no information of
loto was secured from Hay ward, who
itrongly protested his innocence of any
cuowledgeof thecrimo.
Miss Gong, who had had connections
n Auburn, X. Y., had been in this city
lome time and had workod up a lucrnive
business aa a dressmaker, bhe had
>een known to carry laifce sums of
noney on her person on eevoral oocalions
of lalo.
One of the most important facts yet
earned is that Miss Gong drew $7,000
roin a safe deposit vault Monday, and
to trace of this monoy can be found.
L'his strengthens the theory that sho
vas killed for monoy.
Others think it to bo a love aflair
ind that the murder waB prompted by
ealousy. No arrests havo yet boon
nade, but the theory that it was the
erinination of a lover's quarrel is based
in thn fnct tlmt it in Itnrfwn to n num.
>er of peraons familiar with her moveoenta
of late that she had been in the
labit of driving out alono and picking
ip her companion at some point in the
mtskirts of tho city, und ior this reason,
he police are bonding every energy
award to locating this person. Mayor
fastis ie heading tho investigating and
arge rewards have been ottered for the
ipprehension of tno murderer.
One of Miss Gong's numerous admirird
was Fred I. Reid, at present mana;er
of a department storo in St. J'aul.
tlr. Roid was eugagod to her at one
imo, but broke his engagomont without
[iving her any explanation, and evon
entan officor to secure his diamond
ngagement ring, which she refused to
urrender.
One of the first things which the poice
learned was that lately sovoral
lotes had been sent to Miss Gong by a
nan who always summoned a nieasen;er
from the Nicollett house and that
lie received one of tho notes Monday.
?he measenger was located, and upon
iaitincr Mian Gonff'fl room nointed out
he picture of linrvey Axford, local
aanoger for an eastern clothing firm,
is that of tho mail who sent the notes,
lut when Axford'a wife proved that she
tad given Miss Gong Mr. Axford's phoograph,
Mr. Axford was dismissed.

'lio Jnpanofto Legation on tho iloport of
Japan'* Pomanik
Washington, Doc. 4.?At the Japanso
legation here tho disposition is to
liscredit tho statement made by tho
apanoae semi-official press that if the
rar were concluded now the victorious
tation would demand an indemnity of
00,000,000 yon und tiie cossion of Chi*
ieae territory now occupied by the Japinese.
Great secrecy pervades tho
intiro course of tho diplomatic pre*
iminarv treaty negotiations now in
irogreas, and tlio Japanese governnont,
it is asserted, ia not tnakiutr pubic
the terma upon which theao nogotiaionn
are based.
Even the foreign representatives of
ho government aro not kept advised of
fhat ia buiim down. It ia not dotirablo,
t ia said at the legation, that the terms
f any treaty of peace should be pubished
at this time, consequently there
an be oflbrod no pretext for interfernee
by foreign powers who may fancy
hemielves at a disadvantage as tho
losaiblo reaultof the conclusion of much
lenco negotiations. Nothing is known
,t tho legation of the torms of tho
ounter-proposition mado by Japan to
