Cut XJi tlie Body ami Threw It Into Yel ,Joir JIlTl 1'ond Sifyiiillcnnt Find , aindc In the Gilbert Street House. "Bridgeport. Conn , Sept. 24, Not long after the finding of Emma Gill's body in Tellow Mill Pond, Capt. Arnold, of the Bridgeport police, searched the house of Dr. Nancy A. Guilford, the midwife, in Gilbert Street, and found on a table a slip of paper on -which was written "Har ry Ox'ey." Nowhere In Bridgeport could be found a man by that name. When Grace Perkins's father came aown from Middleboro and took away the body as that of his daughter who had disappeared with Charles Bourne. Capt. Arnold searched Plymouth County for a Harry Oxley without finding one. But -when it was found that the victim was a Southlngton girl, Cape Arnold found a Harry Oxley in Southington, a young man who bore a good reputation in the village and who had known the Gill girl. Oxley, Arnold also found, had sent $150 in an express envelope from Plantsville '"to Dr. Guilford. When Oxley learned to day how much the police knew he con fessed that he sent the money to the Bridgeport midwife to pay her for at tending the sick1 girl. All the Guilford household but the mid life herself are under arrest, and the woman may be found by the detectives at any hour. Eudora Guilford, the mid wife's young daughter, was arrested this morning in Wellsburg, N. T., at the home of her uncle, Stephen Brown. She prob ably had no hand in -the cutting up of Emma Gill's body. Some of the letters found in the Gilbert street house are letters written by Eu dora to her mother last Summer when tnc midwife was a fugitive from justice. Eudora, in several of these letters, said that she would leave her mother if she ever again took up the work which had .sent Dr. Gill to Weathersfield. In one letter she wrote that she "would rather go to work in a factory any time nan tie called upon to witness again anything of ihe kind." Harry Guilford, the police believe, as sisted his mother in cutting up the Southington girl's body, and- the work was "done in the bathroom of the Gilbert Street house. Chief Birmingham has evidence that Guilford was in Bridgeport two weeks ago tomorrow night, and that he went with his mother to Yellow Mill Pond to throw away tha bundles containing the parts of Emma Gill's body. Guilford looks like an Indian. If he loiew of the cutting up of the Southing ton girl's body in his mother's house he has the nerve of an Indian of the colo nial period. When some newspaper men met him in New Haven last week and asked him if it was true that his mother's loundry mark was "G. 51" he unbuttoned the collar he was wearing and he showed the mark and then went down to his boat, the Ceres, to get some more .collars to show they were all marked ''G. 51' Not only this, but he came down to Bridgeport to show his collars to all who wanted to see them. That day he did not go near his mother's house. Down in the cellar of tha Guilford house Is a furnace, in which the police state the Southington girl's clothing and the parts of her body removed to conceal the cause of death were burned. In this furnace Capt. Arnold found the heel of one of the girl's shoes, the metal skeleton of a pocket-book and the steels of her corsets. In the bath room evidence was found that a body had been cut up there. All this was found the day after the body was pulled out of Yellow Mill Pond, and it made the police certain that Dr. Guilford -was the guilty midwife. Harry Guilford and his mother cut up -the body and took It to Yellow Mlllpond, Chief Birmingham says. A phaeton was hired from Banks Bros.' stables, in Broad Street, on Sunday night two weeks ago. Tbe head and legs were tied up in two bundles and placed in the carriage. Dr. Guilford drove the phaeton and Harry went on ahead on his wheel. They drove past the pond to the Bishop Avenue stone pile. There Harry got the stones and tied them to the bundles. They came back over Connecticut Avenue to the pand to throw the bundles into the water The next night another trip to the pond was made to dispose of the rest of the body. Oxley did not come to Bridgeport with the girl. He confided in his friend Guernsey and gave him some letters from tbe girl, written from Bridgeport. Guern sey burned these. AH the prisoners wore arraigned before Judge Carroll in the Circuit Court today. Walter C. Foster, of Hartford, the young man whose sister the Gill girl said she was going to visit, was released. Guil ford, Oxley, and the colored servants were held on the charge of procuring an abortion, and bail was fixed at $1,500. Guernsey was re'eased on a $i00 bail bond. The hearing was set down for October L I TEE IuA.YOE, NOT INVITED. 'An Unpleasant Feature of the Fu neral of MImm "Winnie Davis. Richmond, Va., Sept. 24.

V Ear m k, ibb p w fca y& Kca w . ur - I TIIEY TALKED EOE AN HOUE It Wn the Second Time They Had Ever .Met Col. Bryan Feels Com plimented The Heart of the Army Wuh In Unifoj-m The Two Soldiers Friendly. Col. William J. Bryan has reason to feel complimented by the visit made upon him yesterday afternoon at his hotel from Maj. Gen. Nelson A. Miles, commanding the armies of the United States. Gen. Miles called upon Col. Bryan in uniform. It Is not freouent that an army officer I of so high a rank as that of Gen. Miles pays an official visit to a person holding tho rank of colonel. Army etiquette re quires that the colonel should call on the general, and not the general upon the colonel. Gen. Miles may have made hla call purely a social one. The visit lasted for more than an hour, and the two gentlemen chatted at much length and seemed to enjoy each other's company. It was the second time they had ever met, either officially or socially, the first being at the War Department the day before, when Col. Bryan called upon Gen. Miles on business with reference to the matter of mustering out a part of the Nebraska regiment. This call was made In company with Gov. Holcomb, of Ne braska. As is well known, Gen. Miles has not been treated as his rank entitles him by the War Department. The Secretary of War, It Is alleged, has attempted on more than one occasion to humiliate the com manding general. Gen. Miles has not been In sympathy with the management of the War De partment In but few. If any, of the cam n.-iiirns made, either In Cuba or Porto Rico. Gen. Miles managed his own cam paign in Porto Rico, which was not in ac cordance with the wishes o the war De partment Gan. Miles is himself somewhat of a politician. He knows politics and Is con versant with every political move that has been made. He knows too well that politics has predominated the manager ment of the War Department, and much of this he also thinks had Its origin at the White House. The appointment of tho sons of prominent men and others whoso Indorsements were of a political nature only verifies this statement, and Gen. Miles knows It perhaps better than anyone else. Gen. Miles had the opportunity, if he so desired, to communicate to Col. Bryan a great deal of Information about the management of the War Department, especially tho political features, which Col. Bryan can, when the time comes, use to good advantage. Secretary Alger Is fighting Gen. Miles. Gen. Miles would be justified in fighting Secretary Alger. Col. Bryan is still tho most conspicuous man In the army. He was a candidate for the Presidency and may be renominated two years hence. Gen. Miles is familiar with Col. Bryan's ability to make use of political capital. In tha opinion of a very largo percentage of the American people Gen. Miles would be Justified In giving to Col. Bryan, or any one else, valuable Information upon this point. Whether it would be In keeping with the rules of discipline which govern the army Is another question. Gen. Miles may not object to seeing Col. Bryan the next President. He may go upon tho theory that the ejection of a Democratic President may be instru mental In remedying many of the evils that have grown up In the War Depart ment under Secretary Alger's administra tion. He might believe that with a Dem ocrat In the White House there may come a thorough Investigation perhaps moro thorough than that which Is to be made by the commission completed on yesterday. Gen. Miles may have told Col. Bryan many things which he would have the right to tell regarding the management of the army. It was one soldier talking to another soldier. The' question of rank may have been for the time thrown aside, and the two men could have expressed their views freely. AVhen Col. Bryan was seen last night by a Times reporter and asked regarding the nature of the visit he said that it was purely personal and had no significance of any kind, political or otherwise. Col. Bryan left the Metropo itan Hotel last night and stopped with friends on Capitol Hill. He is awaiting a reply from President McKinley to the request made to him by Gov. Holcomb, of Ne braska, on the question of .mustering out a portion of the two Nebraska regiments. He hopes to know of the reply to Gov. Holcomb some time today, and In the event the President makes reply -today Col. Bryan will leave for his headquar ters at Jacksonville tonight. Otherwise he will doubtless remain until Monday. It is very probable, however, that a reply will be forthcoming by that time at least. HIS MARRIAGE A SURPRISE. Ralph Xj. Cnlt Hurt But Recently Been Divorced. Ralph L. Gait, one of the proprietors of the Gait jewelry establishment, on Pennsylvania Avenue, near Eleventh Street, was quietly married on Friday night to Hiss Maude Bramlitt, of Au gusta, Ga, by the Rev. Dr. Fiske, pastor of the Gunton Memorial Church. The newly married couple are now liv ing at No. 1300 N Street northwest. They will leave the city In a few dajs on a four weeks' bridal tour, after which they will return to the city to reside permanently here. Mr. Gait's marriage was a complete surprise to his friends. He was married once before, and was divorced from his first wife in January last. His marriage to Miss Bramlitt was private. The cere mony was witnessed by only a single friend, and it occurred at the residence of Dr. Fiske, of Q Street northwest. Mr. Gait secured his marriage license at the -city hall Friday night after the business of the court had been concluded for the day. A few minutes after secur ing the license he and Miss Bramlett call ed at tha residence of Dr. Fiske and were married. Mr. Gait was divorced from his first wife, Henrietta Gait, in the District courts last January. The papers In the case were withheld from publication. It is not known upon what ground the di vorce was granted. According to the de cree in the case he was ordered to pay his divorced wife ?200 a. month Vlmony, the custody of their child, Ralph Lee Gait, was given to the mother, And she was also allowed to retain her dower rights" In the Gait estate.

EYEGLASSES, $1 CASH; CASTELBERG 935 VWWWVi V '8WWW ?v declineO' Fortune. Rev. Dr. Stafford AVus Offered 910, OOO by n. Lecture Ilnrcnu. Rev. Dr. D. J. Stafford, assistant pastor of St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, has just declined4an offer of $10,000 to deliver a forty weeks series of lectures on the "Passion PJay' w The offer was attempting one and had it been accepted it would have afforded the distinguished priest a respectable for tune, but notwithstanding this fact he declined. The proposition was recently made to Dr. Stafford by a well-known lecture bureau. It was the idea of this concern to have Dr. Stafford tour the United States and Canada and deliver lectures on the "Passion Play," which It was pro posed to Illustrate by means of the kine toscope. Dr. Stafford's duty in connec tion with the production would have been to deliver a sermon on the subjects Illus trated, following the scenes from the be ginning of the passion until the con clusion. The plans of the bureau were to have Dr. Stafford deliver nine sermons a week, nightly and on three afternoons. Dr. Stafford's famous powers of elo quence, remarkable voice, and graceful delivery, commended htm to the man agers of the bureau." They selected him from a list of divines, including all the prominent priests and clergymen in the country. The matter of his acceptance was dis cussed earnestly by Dr. Stafford's friends and associates. Many of the Catholic clergy and laity urged him. to accept the offer, and It is understood that the whole matter was referred to Cardinal Gibbons. Dr. Stafford was all along disinclined to accept the offer, and it is reported that Cardinal Glbbpns gave him to un derstand that his services could not be conveniently dispensed with by tho church. It was claimed that Dr. Stafford as a lecturer in the capacity proposed could do a great deal ofwork to strengthen the church, but this view was not ac cepted by him or .Cardinal Gibbons. Dr. Stafford says that ne Deneves it is his duty to preach for the church rather than to todr the country for his own personal benefit, and for that reason he declined the offer. Postmnstcr of Terra.

The FrcnklMh Act of a "Wnwhlnfirton ExprcHM ClerU. A freakish desire to school himself in the art of being a detective by dressing himself in female attire landed Charles McCandless, of New York, formerly em ployed in.the United States Express Com pany's office, in this city, in the Central Police Station In Philadelphia Friday. He was, held there until his identity was ascertained and the police of the Quaker City were assured that he was not In dulging In a masquerade to conceal crime. McCandless recently gave up his posi tion with the express company here and on Thursday he was given a pass to re turn to his home In New York. Friday morning he shaved very closely, dressed himself In a. complete female costume, and boarded a Blue Line tram. In ap pearance he was a tall, slender woman, rather good looking-, and apparently about thirty-five years of age. He got along all right until he handed his pass to the conductor. It is contrary to the rules of the company for a woman to travel on an express company pass, and when he received the slip of paper tho astute conductor took a survey of his passenger. He noticed a slight blueness about the cheeks, chin and upper lip, which even the close application of a razor had not concealed, and he realized that the passenger, so far as sex was con cerned, was entitled to the pass. The " circumstance was suspicious, though, so without saying anything to McCandless he telegraphed ahead to the station agent at Philadelphia. That of ficial referred the case to Capt. Miller, of the Baltimore and Ohio detectives, who assigned Detective Donaghy to wait for the train. Detective Donaghy met the train at Philadelphia and took McCandless to the central police station. There he was given in charge of a matron and placed In a woman's cell until a telegram giving the circumstances and a description of him was sent to the police. Thoy investigated the case and after ascertaining that McCandless had not committed any misdemeanor so reported to Philadelphia. The young man was then released and proceeded on his journey to New York. He told tho police in Philadelphia that he aspired to become a detective, and had put on female clothes In order to see how effectually he could disguise himself. He is said to be a lawyer by profession. ARRESTED KT GREENSBORO. Lee Swain, Wnnted Here for Ilurpr litry. Is In Custody. Acting Inspector BoaTdman was notified yesterday by the police authorities of Greensboro, N. C. of the arrest in that city Thursday of Lee Swain, a negro, well known to the local police, who admit ted that he committed a- burglary In Washington last July. , When Swain was searched after his ar rest a Colt's revolver, bearing the in scription, "Metropolitan- Police Depart ment, Washington, D. C?' and several other articles which came from this city, were found on his parson. After some questioning Swain admitted that he had stolen the articles from the house of Policeman J. T. Bassford, at 221 Ninth Street southwest, one night last July. The robbery was reported to the police at the time, but no trace was ob tained of the burglar. Detective Lacey left last night for Greensboro to bring Swain back to Washington. THE PEACE JTJBrLEE. Washington AVill Prolinlily Join In the National Celebration. Washington will probably join with tha other largo cities of America in the great peace jubilee which it Is intended shall be held simultaneously all over the coun try.
