Events leading up to the tragedy
have been traced by the police and
according to them the last chapter In
which looks like an illicit romance,
opened on Thursday afternoon last
when Hainplon called at the hotel
Griffcu and engaged a room. Friday
morning about 9 o'clock he entered
the hotel accompanied by a woman
and going straight up to the hotel
office ho registered as "Mr. and Mrs.
Sinclair, Burlington."
Hampton had been employed by tho
trust company for tliirty-llve years and
was a protege of former Pres. John A.
Stewart, now clialfinan of the board
of directors. He was regarded at the
office of the company as an able and
efficient man and of (food habits. The
first positive identification of the vlc-(
tims of the tragedy was made by the
dead woman's brother.
He at once recognised a pair of silk
garters with gold buckles as the prop
erty of his sister's, one_ of the buckles
bore the letters *"V. I? T.," while on
the other was Inscribed "L. G. H."
Young Taczkow also told the police
that the man undoubtedly was Louis
G. Hampton, who had been very at
tentive to his sister for some time.
"Hampton told us thfrt lite intended
to marry my sister when his mother
died,'' said Tavzkow.
"I never knew much about hi in, but
he seemed to be honorable in his in
tentions and appeared to be very fond
of my sister.
"Victoria, was a good girl' and never
stayed out all night. We thought we
knew where she was every minute of
the time."
Louis C. Hampton had a summer
home at Highland, in Ulster county,
this state, and Mrs. Hampton and her
daughter spent last summer there.
NeW York, Oct. £7. Theodore
Roosevelt, president of the United
States, celebrates Ills forty-seventh
birthday, and from ail corners of the
country congratulations are being
showered on him, for no matter what
his political views are or what steps
he lias taken in his affairs of state, all
are ready to admit that Roosevelt Is
u man of the people, a popular man,
a model hcud of a family, and a type
of chivalrous gentleman that the com
ing' generation would do well to copy.
While not attempting to enter into a
biography of the "man of the moment,"
a short account of his career at this
junctude would not be amiss.
Mr. Roosevelt was bom in an unpre
tentious Jiouse which at present Is
numbered 28 East Twentieth street,
and In the very room in which he first
saw light the Roosevelt Home club,
which -was organized a few years ago,
holds its meetings. The club Intends
to preserve the house and maintain It
as u national landmark, though ut
present It is given over to business
and a hideous bow window has pain
fully altered its appearance. Theodore
Roosevelt, the president's father, who
Is still remembered In New York as
a man of affairs, a philanthropist and
a genial companion, lived most of his
time at Oyster Bay, but he kept a
house in the city and his face was a
familiar one about town. Indeed,
since the arrival in New Amsterdam
of Claes Martenven Van Roosevelt in
1650, the family has been constantly
and intimately connected with the
city's life. For the most part thev
lived the lives of simple and frugal
Dutch burghers, regularly attending
the Reformed Dutch church, and ac
tively cngufeed in trade. From time
to time they made modest excursions
into politics. One of the president's
direct ancestors associated himself
with the Leisbrlftn, or popular party,
in its atm&gie against th* tyranny of
James U. of England. This wox'thy

Robbers entered John Gachne's resi
dence, about fifteen miles northwest
of Balfour, and got away with $150 in
money. Sunday morning they stole two
or three sets of harness from G. J.
Nehrenberg, five miles northeast of
Balfour. Sunday night they visited
Alfred Alexson's place, thirteen miles
east of Balfour, and stole a farm wa
gon, which he traced twelve miles to
ward Rugby. Tuesday they called at
the barn of Frank Kauffman, about
five miles north of Drake, and secured
a set of new work harness.
They began work in Drake Wednes
day evening and entered A. C. Met
calf's residence, where they secured a
$50 fur overcoat from O. M. Parker
and took his trousers with $10.[0 in
the pockets. They also took a note for
$50 and another for $490.
burgher's occupation was that of a
"bolter," a vocation ho did not hand
down to his illustrious descendant,
who never "bolted" at anything. The
president's line remained purely Dutch
till the sixth generation, marrying
Dutch families only. James Roose
velt, the president's great grandfather,
gave his services without reward as
commissary to the Continental army
during the entire war of Independence.
Isaac Roosevelt, a collateral ancestor,
took a prominent part on the prov
incial congress which organized the
state of New York. The family allied
Itself strongly with the patriot cause.
Probably the most famous of the
eighteenth century Roosevelts was
Nicholas J., the Inventor who was one
of the first to make steam navigation
by means of the vertical paddle w heel
a success. The president's grand
father, Cornelius Van Schaak Roose
velt, was a successful merchant and
glass importer and laid the founda
tions of the Roosevelt fortunes. His
city home, since pulled down, stood
on the southwest corner of Broadway
and Fourteenth street. It was a
spacious, nearly square, white marble
and brick mansion. It was built in
the late '30's and stood until the
ground became too valuable for
residential purposes. Here it was that
the Roosevelt clans gathered for fami
ly reunions, and "Teddy," aa a young
ster, frequently played in his grand
father's back yard. Theodore Roose
velt, senior, was in business with his
father and Inherited a considerable
property. The city home, 26 lSast
Twentieth street was lp a location
respectable, though not "swell." Here
he lived till 1873, when he moved into

Vice President's L^g.
Lima, O., Oct. 27.—Hartley Harper
of this city saved Vice President Fair
banks from drowning when they were
boys together in Union City, O. This
being the anniversary day, Mr. Harper
had his usual reminder from the vice
not sent to the public schools. He was
tutored at home and for awhile at
tended Cutler's school. In 1875, when
the family was living in Fifty-seventh
street, he entered Harvard and for
several years was but rarely in this
city. His vacations were spent in the
country and in traveling. His father
died in 187r, but Mrs. Roosevelt con
tinued to live in Fifty-seventh street
until her death in 1884. It was here
that the president lived as a young
man just out of college he entered the
arena of New York politics in 1881 as
a candidate for the New York assem
bly In the twenty-fifth district, a part
of the town strongly republican. Some
years ago Theodore Roosevelt, growing
reminiscent of his entrance into poli
tics, observed: "I have always be
lieved, and do yet, that a man should
join a political organisation and should
attend the primaries that he should
not be content to be governed, but
do ids part in the work. So, upon
leaving college, I went to the local
headquarters, attended all meetings,
and took my part in whatever was up.
There came n revolt against the mem
ber of the assembly from that district.
I was nominated to succeed him and
was'elected." He was re-elected to
the legislature in 1883 and his activity
tlwsre as a reformer and anti-machine
man Is well known. In 1883 Mr.
Roosevelt, having married, moved to
f»5 East Forty-fifth street, a modest
New Brunswick brownstone house,
where he lived only one year. This
was the time when the state repub
lican convention sent the young as
semblyman to the republican national
convention at Chicago, which nomi

lie lived two years, during which time
he took an active part in municipal
affairs and was nominated for mayor
of the city on the republican ticket,
running against Abram S. Hewitt, and
tho famous Henry George. He was
absent from the city much during
these years on the Dakota ranch,
which he had purchased. In 1886
he moved his city home a little fur
ther up town to 689 Madison avenue,
where lie continued to live until 1897.
His residence here, the longest lie ha.
y%t been allowed to have, comprised
a part of his life when he was writing
a history and acting as civil service
and police commissioner. Mr. Roose
velt evidently considered this more
permanently his home than any other
of the city houses he has occupied.
The dining-room, which Is still as he
left it, was filled up and decorated
according to his own notions. In the
spring of 1897 Theodore Roosevelt was
called to Washington by President Mc
Klnley to be assistant secretary of the
navy and gave up his New York home.
Up to the time of writing, the career
of the president is well known. The
village of Roswell, Cherokee county,
Ga., however, awakes to find itself
famous. Hero the president's mother
spent her girlhood, and while Mr. and
Mrs. Roosevelt were touring In the
south recently, they visited Bulloch
Hall. To quote the words o£ the bi
ographer, "Roosevelt stopped here for
a few hours on his present southern
tour, where his mother spent her girl
hood, to see the house In which she
lived In her young days, to stand rev
erently in the room she used as a girl,
