BOGKERS TAKES HIS CHILD.
IAIIokciI Ahiluction From the Comic
Home in OkncRo, X. V.
OSWEGO, N. Y., Dec. S. Lebbeus Hard
ing Rogers, jr., of New York, gave the
local police authorities a lively run hero
today. He was wanted on a warrant
charging him with kidnaping his infant
daughter, seven months old, from the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. Swits Conde,
the baby's grandparents. Young Rogers
arrived here from New York at 8:30 o'clock
this morning, accompanied by a woman
who wore a thick veil, and drove to the
home of Mrs. Henry D. McCaffery, where
the woman alighted, Rogers proceeding to
the Conde home two blocks away. He ex
pressed a desire to see his baby daughter,
and he was taken to the nursery where the
cbild was in charge of a nurse. After
taking the baby in his arms and talking
pleasantly for a few moments he left the
house with the child.
Swlts-Churchill Conde. his brother-in-law,
hastened to police headquarters and
obtained a warrant for the arrest of Rogers
upon a Kidnaping charge, but Rogers es
caped to Syracuse.
Rogers married Miss Maria Dorcas
Conde. eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Swits Conde, at the Fifth Avenue Presby
terian Church, in New York city, in the
spring of 189S. In May last Mrs. Rogers
gave birth to twin daughters at the Conde
home, in New York, and died a few days
afterward. The body was brought here
for burial, and Mrs. Conde took chargo
of the babies, one of which died in Sep
tember. Rogers made his home with the
Condes most of tho summer, but, it is
said, there was a falling out which called
for his retirement from the family circle.
The steps to apprehend and arrest Rogers
have been abandoned, the local police au
NEW YORK, Dec. S. Lebbeus II. Roger3,
8i, said today that he did not care to talk
about his son's differences with the Condes.
He said that young Mr. Rogers left home
after dinner on Thursday with the inten
tion, as he supposed, of spending the night
with friends on Staten Island. He had no
Idea that his son Intended to go to Oswego,
and did not know of his having gone there.
"But. anyway," Mr. Rogers said, "the
child Is his and he has a right to It"
The marriage of Lebbeus H. Rogers, jr.,
and Maria Swits Conde on May 17, 189S, at
tho Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church,
caused some comment because of the trou
ble the Condes had in the spring and sum
mer of 1897 with Ensign Stone, of the
monitor Puritan, who was In love with
Miss Conde. Mr. Condo charged Ensign
Stone, whose addresses were not welcomed '
by the young woman's family, with trying
to abduct his daughter from the Yates
House in Syracuse. On these charges the
young man was summoned before a board
of enquiry on May 1, 1S97. The court ex
onerated him from all blame, and Secre
tary Long, in transmitting the court's
findings to Mr. Conde, took that gentle
man to task rather sharply.

Xutliuu A. Taylor Before tin Indus
The United States Industrial Commission
yesterday heard the testimony of Nathan
A. Taylor, of Philadelphia, of the N. &
G. Taylor Company, manufacturers of tin
plate. Mr. Taylor said his firm was a
partnership, and not a corporation. It had
been in existence for more than thirty-five
years, but did not manufacture tin pla:e
until the tariff law went Into effect in 1690.
Before that time goods were manufactured
for the firm in Wales.
Mr. Taylor said that 64 per cent of the
tin plate used in this country Is used east
of the Allegheny Mountains. His firm dots
not manufacture block plates, but intends
to erect a mill for that purpose as soon as
improvements in the manufacture are
made. The block plates, manufactured in
America, he said, are superior to those
Prices are no higher for tin plate now
than they were six years ago, he said, and
wages in the tin plate industry are gener

with his mills, and the firm had never had
His firm has no relation with the Ameri
can Tin Plato Company, except that the
company bought out a .mill that had a con
tract to supply his firm with block p ate

A NEW POSTAL RULING.
lMiiie of an Order Governing-; Hnntl-Stain-tini?.
Third Assistant Postmaster General Ed
win C. Madden has issued the following
rulings in regard1 to the hand-stamping of
matter which passes through the mails:
Tirst Imprints made upon paper by lund
stamp (when not having the cluractcr of an ac
tual aiid iwr&oiia'i correspondence) are held to be
printed matter within the intendment of section
313, Pottul I-avvb anil Ktyul.itions.
Second Imprint by haml-sUmp upon printed
matter of the third class are held not to atfect
its classification, except when the added print is
in itself personal, or converts that to which it is
added Into a personal communication; but when
such appears to be the fact, in either case, the
presentation at one tune at the po3toftice of not
less than twenty identical copies to separate ad
dresses is held to lie Mifltcient evidence of imper
sonal character to entitle such matter to the
third-class rate of postage.
The order is snid by Mr. Madden to bo
of greater importance than at first ap
pears. Heretofore, he said, mail matter
of this character has had no definite classi
fication owing to the matter being neither
written or printed ns it is construed by
