Dreadful Sufferings of a
Schooner's Crew.
Cowardice of the Captain of a Life-
Saving Station—A Curious Co
incidence of Death.
lAssoe-lated Press Dispatches to the Hkbald.l
New York, February 0. —The schooner
James E. Kelsey, Captain J. Wheatton,
Jr., arrived in this port from Wilming
ton, N. C, having on board the second
mate, John Christman, and two seamen,
the sole survivors of the crew of the
schooner Allie R. Chester, hailing from
New York, which had become disabled
during a gale encountered on a trip from
Charleston to Barron Island with phos
phates, and struck on the outer edge of
the Diamond Reef, fifteen miles south
east of Cape Hatteras, January 20th.
Captain Ingersoll of the Chester, First
to ate Weels, the cook and two seamen
were drowned. The survivors were forty
seven hours lashed to a stump of
the mizzen mast before they were
discovered by Captain Wheatton of
the schooner Kelsey. Their rescue was
accomplished with great difficulty.
Twenty-four hours before they were res
cued they sighted a life-boat putting out
from shore toward them, but it returned
without coming near. Captain Daly, of
the life-saving station, claims that he
put out toward the wreck, but, seeing no
signs of life on board, returned, not car
ing to risk his beat and crew for nothing.
Daly has since resigned, however. A
coincidence in connection with this story
is the fact that it was discovered to-day
that at the very time when Captain In
gersoll was spending his last moments
lashed to the rigging of his vessel, his
wife was dying of consumption at Wood
munkville, N. J.
The Terrible Experience of Two 1
Deserting Sailors.
New York, February 6.—The Fall
River steamer, Old Colony, to-day
brought in a sailor named Leander Kal- '
doon_. badly frozen, and the corpse of '
anotber man, whom Kaldoon knew only
as "Bill." Kaldoon says he sailed from I
New York on the morning of the 4th on
the schooner J. F. Kearnes, Captain
McDonald, for South Africa. Before
sailing, and after the voyage began, the \
crew were treated most atrociously by j
the captain and mate, and resolved to
make a raft from some planking and logs
on deck and desert at night. Finding
they could not make a raft large enough 1
to hold all four of the sailors they drew '
lots to see which two should escape. £
Kaldoon and "Bill" won the prize and
launched the raft at 11 o'clock last night.
They expected to make shore, but the
wind shifted and carried them out in the
middle of the Sound. A heavy sleet
storm prevailed, and they were washed
overboard. At 8:30 o'clock this morn- !
ing the Old Colony picked them up. j
Restoratives were used, and the half- ;
frozen men were rolled in hot blankets
and rubbed. "Bill" was beyond human .
aid. He gasped a few times and then '
died. Kaldoon is getting along well.
Captain Hammond says the men wore ,
encased in ice when rescued, and he had
no idea of saving the lives of either of
A Terrible Scene Made t»r a Lover

Chicago, February 6. —This morning
at the Hotel Cortland a man named W.

Bradley is given an excellent reputation,
but her husband was a black sheep.
He got out of the penitentiary
a few months ago, where he
served a sentence for embezzlement.
Ever since he has been insanely jealous,
particularly of Frederick Mann, of H. V.
Mann & Co., linen drapers, who, while
Bradley was in the penitentiary, was in
the habit of escorting her when fulfilling
night assignments. He was evidently
very much in love with her, for when
the news of her death became known he
went to the morgue and made a scene,
repeatedly kissing *he cold and bloody
lips of the dead woman, and heaping
imprecations on the head of her dead

Alexander Sullivan Shows Him Up
and Flatly Contradicts
His Testimony.
I Associated Press Dlsoatches to the Herald. I
Chicago, February G.—Alexander Sul
livan, ex-President of the Irish National
League of America, speaking to-day in
regard of the statements made about
him by Dr. Le Caron before the Parnell
Commission in London yesterday, said
he knew Le Caron very slightly. The
latter had represented himself to Sul
livan as a Frenchman with an Irish
wife and most ardent Irish sympathies.
He claimed to have served in the Union
army and afterwards in the Fenian
organization. Mr. Sullivan believed
there was not a particle of foundation for
Le Coron's statements about Parnell's
expressions of sympathy with any
method, except open public agita
tion, to aid Ireland. The whole
story was another desperate effort
to give some color or excuse for continu
ing the case against Parnell. The Even
ing News declares Le Caron served in
the Union Army during the war, and in
timates that both then and during his
connection with the Fenians he acted as
a spy for the British Government. He
had an office in this city on La Salle
avenue, bus left for Europe" about Christ

Vienna, February 0. —The Emperor
Francis Joseph, in an autograph letter
to Premier Yon Taafe, orders publicity
given to the following proclamation:
"My people: Overwhelmed with deep
grief, i humbly bow my bead before the
inscrutable decree of Divine Providence, >
appealing with my people to the ;
Almighty to give me strength co [
that 1 may not falter in the i
conscientious performance of my
duties as ruler, but may keep before ■
my eyes that course of steadfast
adherence which assures for the com- '
monwealth the blessings of peace. It
has been a consolation to me, during •
these days of bitter woe, to know that I ■
was upheld by the heartfelt sympathy of
my people, of which I have received
from all sides the most touching to
The proclamation further expresses the
heartfelt thanks of the Kmperor and
Empress aud their sorely stricken daugh
ter-in-law for the sympathy accorded
them, and concludes by asking God's
help in the future, and the co-operation
of the Austrian subjects with their ruler,
to secure the welfare of the fatherland.
In Collision and Sunk.
London, February (i.—The British bark
Largo Bay, bound for Auckland, was
towed to Spithead to-day in a sinking
condition. She reports that on Monday
night last she was in collision with an
unknown four-masted steamer off Beachy
Head, and that the steamer was sunk
with all on board. The seamen of the
Largo Bay say they are certain that the
lost steamer carried passengers, and
they estimate that the crew and passen
gers together numbered at least 100 per
sons. The steamer sunk eight minutes
after the collision occurred.
John Bull Disgusted.
London, February 6. —The Daily News,
commenting on the Samoan situation,
says: "Prince Bismarck has disregarded
his obligations to Great Britain in a most
flagrant way, and Count Herbert Bis
marck's ostentatious friendliness for
America is inadequate to re
compense us for our Austral
ian colonies. A policy of subservience
to Germany which procures us no ap
preciable advantages is neither a triumph
of diplomatic skill nor a solace to
National pride."
Rudolph's Request to the Pope.
Berlin, February 6—A dispatch to
the Frankfurt Zeitung from Rome says :
In January Rudolph addressed himself
directly to the Pope, without his father's
knowledge, to ask his assistance in ob
taining a divorce and authority to marry
again. The Pope sent the letter to the
Emperor, and the result was a serious
explanation between father and son,
which probably unhinged the latter.
Pendleton Weak, But Working.
Berlin, February (j.—The report that
Judge Lambert Tree, United States Min
