NEW YORK May 6Ndlly fly has been
up to Belfast N Y to interview John L
Sullivan for the World and here is the
story she tells
I Sullivan isnt able to whip any pugil
ist in the world I would like to see the
m who is I went to Belfast N Y to
see him last week and was surprised How
often I have thought the sparring instinct
inborn in everything except women and
flowers I have seen funny little spring
roosters without one feathers sprout fight
like real men I is funny how proud a boy
is of his muscle How quick a boy who
hast any tries to get it Almost as soon as
SL boy learns to walk he learns to jump into
a position of defense and double up his fst
I reached Belfast in the morning the
only passenger to that place Muldoons
house where Sullivan is training is in the
prettiest part of the town and only a short
distance from the hotel One would never
iniastfue from the surroundings that a prize
fighter was training there The house is a
very pretty two story building surrounded
by the smoothest and greenest of lawns I
rang the bell and sent up my letter of
introduction to Muldoon A handsome
young man with broad shoulders and
corduroy coat came into the room holding
a light gray cap in his hand face youthful
his smile
eyes blue expression pleasing smie
y brought two dimples to puncture his rosy
9 cheeks with bearing easy and most grace
ful the champion wrestler and athlete
William Muldoon had just returned from a
two mile all He said Sullivan is just
being rubbed down and if you will excuse
me one moment I will tel him
In a few moments Muldoon returned
followed by a man who would never be taken
for the great the only Sullivan He was a
tall man with enormous shoulders dark
ta
trousers light cheviot coat vest and slip
pers In his hand he held a light cloth
cap He paused as he entered the room
in 1 half bashful way and twisted his cap
in a boyish and not ungraceful manner
Miss Bly Mr Sullivan said Muldoon
I looked into the great fighters dark bright
eyes a he bent his broad shoulders Mr
Sullivan I would like to shake hands with
you Ho took my hand with a firm
hearty grasp The hand felt small and
soft Muldoon excused himself and I was
left to interview John L
J I came here to learn all about you Mr
Sullivan Please begin by telling what
time you get up in the morning
Well about oclock I then get rubbed
down and then Muldoon and I walk and
run a mile or a mile and a half and back
As soon as I get in I am given a shower
bath after which I am thoroughly rubbed
down I then put on an entire fresh out
fit
k What kind of clothing do you wear for
s J t your walk Heavy
s Jf Yes a heavy sweater and a suit of heavy
corduroy buttoned tightly also gloves
After my walk I put on a fresh sweater so
that I wont take cold
Whats a sweater
Ill show you he said with a smile He
went out and returned with the garment
in his hand It was a very heavy knit gar
ment with long sleeves and standing collar I
i ngti g dgsI
all one piece I imagine it weighed several l
pounds
hI wear a sweater to make me warm
Then I walk and to reduce my fat and
harden my muscles Since last Friday I
have lost six pounds Last Saturday I lost
six and a half pounds When I came here
I weighed 237 pounds now I weigh 218
pound and before I leave I will weigh
Do you take a cold shower bath
Never I dont believe in cold water it
chills the blood I always have a shower
bath of medium temperature Then I have
two men give me a brisk rubbing with their
hands then I am rubbed down with a mix
ture of ammonia camphor and alcohol
What do you eat
q Nothing fattening Oatmeal for break
fast meat and bread for dinner cold meat
and stale bread for suppor no sweets nor
potatoes I used t smoke all the time but
since I came here I havent seen a cigar
Occasionally Muldoon gives me a glass of
r ala He doesnt average one daily
1 Then training is not pleasant work
hfni rd
The worst thingagomg A fellow would
rather fight twelve dozen times than train
once but it has got to be done
After breakfast I rest awhile and then
putting on the heaviest clothes I start out
for a ten or twelvemile run or walk I do
it in two hours generally go across the
fields of Muldoons farm because it is all up
hill work and makes me warm When I J
get back I a rubbed down again At 1 I
have dinner In the afternoon I wrestle
wreste
punch the bag throw a footboU swing Indian
IJ J
8d
dian clubs and dumbells and practice i chest
movements and such things until supper
time
timeIt
J It is all right here when the sun is out
J but after dark it is the dreariest place I
ever struck I wouldnt live here if they
gave me the whole country Champion
Rest is the name Muldoons home is known
by It is surrounded by two graveyards
fe r
the priests home and a little cottage occu
pied by two old maids
Do you like prize fighting I asked
I dont I did once or rather I was fond
of traveling about and the excitement of
crowds but this is my last fight
Why
Well I a tired and want to settle
down I am getting old
ooif
What will you do if you stop fighting
I I win this fight I will travel a year
giving sparring exhibitions and then settle
down I always wanted t run a hotel in
New York I I were successful I think I
nronrietor should spend the rest of my life as a hotel
nrolretr
How much money have j ou made in your
career as a prize fighter
Five or six hundred thousand dollars
boxing I made 125000 from September 26
1333 to May 261SS4
How do you dress in the prize ring
In knee breeches stockings and shoes
but no shirt
Why no shirt
A man perspires s easily I he wears I
a shirt he is liable to chill and t chill is
always fatal in the prize ring I took a
chill when I fought Mitchell but it didnt
last long
How will you fight Kirin without
gloves
1 London prize ring rules Thats with
out gloves but it allows wrestling and
throwing a man down You get a rest
every thirty seconds Under the Queens
berry rules we wear gloves anything under
eleven ounces There ar three minutes to
the round under the Queensberry rules
and when the three minutes are up you have
t rest whether you coubd whip your man
the next instant or not
I examined his hand he watching with
an amused expression I looks a small
hand t bear the record of so many knock
out blows Tho fingers are straight and
shapely and the closely trimmed nails arc
a lovely oval pink The only apparent dif
ference from an ordinary hand is their
great thickness i through
Feel my arm he d I tried to feel
the muscle It was like rock With both
hands I tried t span it but couldnt The
great fellow sat watching me with a boyish
expression of amusement
When I am ready to fight there wont
be any fat on my hands or face They will
be as hard as bone Do I harden them
Certainly I I didnt I would have pieces
knocked off I use a mixture of rock salt
white wine vinegar and several other in
gredients to wash my hands and face with
Dont YOU hate to hit a man
I dont think about it be said still
smiling
When you have so hurt a man dont you
feel sorry
I never feel sorry until the fight is over
How do you feel when you get hit very
hard I
hardI only want a chance to hit back
Did you ever see a man killed in the
ring
ringjNo I only knew of one fellow who died
inside a ring and that was Walker of
Philadelphia He died from neglect after
the fight was over
Although I had breakfast before reach
ing Muldoons cottage I accepted his pro
posal to break bread with him and his
guests A nearer view of the dining room
lost none of its prettiness The daintiness
of everything the birds white linen beau
eifuldishesabuuchoffragrantlilacsallwsa
entirely foreign to my idea prizefighters
AH were perfectly atease and happy t
one end of the table sat Mrs Muldoon
facing H R Muldoon next Mr I Mul
doon my companion and then myself next
Sullivan On the opposite side sat assist
ant Trainer Barnett Mr Cleary Sulli
vans brother anxious to knock out some
body opposite Sullivan The wild flowers
which graced the table were gathered by
these great strong men while taking their
morning walk
About a mile from Championrest is
Muldoons beautiful farm of seventy acres
well stocked with fine cattle In the training
quarters is suspended from the ceiling a
Rugby football Sullivan pounds every
day this big football they play daily also
here The enormous heavy upstairs floor
is covered with a white wrestling pad
where the two champions wrestle every
afternoon In the corner is a collection of
dumbells and Indian clubs and fastened to
the side of the wall is a chest expander
Muldoons den is covered with photo
graphs of wellknown people there being
several of Modjeska with whom Muldoon
at one time traveled Thero are also a
number of photographs of Mr Muldoon
as Greek statues On a corner table are
albums filled with photographs of prom
inent athletes a scrapbook containing
hundreds of notices of the champion an s
Muldoons athletic conquests well bound
standard works and photographs of Mul
doons favorite authors Bryant Long
fellow and Shakespeare
I dont make any money by this said
Muldoon Speaking about turning my
home into training quarters I a anxious
to see Sullivan do jusiice to himself in his
coming fight I is the case of the fallen
giant so I thought I would get him away
from bad influences and get him in good
trim The healthiest place is the country
and the one the most difficult
to reach the best When we
go to New Orleans we will keep
the car locked and none but Sullivans
backers and representatives of the
rpl senttives press
will be admitted Sullivan is the most
obedient man you ever saw He hasnt
asked to drink or smoke since he came
here He takes what I allow him without a
murmur He thinks pleasure to train
Sullivan is as docile a a lamb All praise
his obedience strong willpower and childlike
You are the first woman who ever inter
viewed me said Sullivan I have given
you more than ever I gave any reporter in
my life They generally manufacture
things and credit them to me although
some are mighty good fellows
When the reporters act all r ht we
give them all they want said Muldoon
The other day a fresh reporter came here
and he thought because he was going to in
terview a prize fighter we would have to
be tough He said Wheres old Sullivan
That squelched him AVe wouldnt give
him a line
At supper Cleary had agreat story about
an Irish bird trap He caught one robin
but Mrs Muldoon released it Another
left it tail behind Then Barnett and
Sullivans brother told how they had put
bird feathers in the cage to cheat the bird
trapper
After this I bade them all goodbye and
shook hands with John L and wished him
success in his coming fight and I believe he
will have it too don t you I

ExPresident Cleveland Tells
Some Sterling Truth
DUTY OF PARTY TO THE COUNTRY
I Has No31 ore Bight to b Dishonest Than
Individuals Have On Gassing the
Press Future Triumphs
NEW YORK May iThe Young Mens
Democratic club of this city extended a
banquet of welcome exProsident Cleve
land at the Fifth Avenue hotel this even
ing Nearly five hundred leaders of the
Democratic party were present The
cheers were long and loud when the ex
President entered the hal He submitted
t the handshaking of many guests for an
hour before taking his seat at the table
Cleveland was dressed in sombre black
There was more of the glow of health in i
his face than at the time he retired from
the presidency He appeared to be in i
the best of spirits
1 factions of the Democratic party were
represented at the banquet Tammany
County Democracy officers of the Reform
club and of the various other Democratic
clubs of this city and Brooklyn
The march into the banquet hal was led
by President Arnold alone He was followed
lowed by exPresident Cleveland Governor
Hill and Mayor Grant in the order named
each escorted by a member of the club under
whose auspices the banquet was given
At the main table was the guest of the
evening on the right of the club president i
Arnold Others in places of honor were
Governor Hill Mayor Grant exMinister
England Phelps W L Scott C F Black
exSecretary Fairchild exGoverno
Hoadley of Ohio and P A Collins About
seven long tables were laid at right angles
to the guests table where were gathered
several hundred other banqueters Before
the guests took their seats Cleveland was
gests an impromptu ovation When
the dinner had been fairly started the or
chestra began the rendition of selections of
music which continued at intervals during
the
banquet
When the presiding officer introduce
Mr Cleveland there was a furore of ap
plause which threatened to overtop all
bounds When quiet was finally restroyed
Mr Cleveland began his speech He said
Many incidents of my short residence in
this good city have served to fill my cup
of gratitude and to arouse my appreciation
of the kindness and consideration of those
with whom I have my home The hospital
ity for which the citizens of New York
have long been distinguished has outdone
itself in my welcome and yet I can truly
say that none of these things will be more
vividly or gratefully remembered than the
opportunity afforded me by this occasion
to greet the political friends I see about
me While I believe no one is more sus
ceptible than I of every personal kindness
and while I am sure no one values more his
personal friendships it certainly should
cause no surprise when I say these things
are not more cherished than my attachment
and loyalty to true Democratic faith and m j
obligation to the cardinal principles of
Its party organizations have been honored
by the party far beyond my deserts In
deed no man can deserve its highest honors I
After six years of public service I return
to you my party friends Six years have
I stood as your representative in the stat
and nation and now I take my place again
in the ranks more convinced than ever
that the cause of true Democracy is i
the cause of the people their safeguard
and their hope
I come to you with no excuses or apolo I
gies and with no confession of disloyalty
I is not given to man to meet all the vari
ous and conflicting views of party duty and
policy which prevail in an organization
wher individual opinion is so freety toler
eated as in the Democratic party and yet
when they are honestly held and advo
cated they should provoke no bitterness
condemnation but when they are dishon
estlv proclaimed as a mere cover and nre
text for personal resentment ana
disappointment they should be met
by that exposue and contempt
whicn they deserve No man can lay
down the trust which he has held in behai
of a generous and confiding people and fee
that at all times he has met in the best pos
sible way the requirements of his trust but
he is not direlict in duty if he has con
scientiously devoted his efforts and his
judgment to the people sincere
I have deliberately placed in close con
ncction loyalty to Democratic principles
and devotion to the interests of the people
for in my view they belong together and
should mean the same thing But in this
day of partisan feelingand attachment itis
well for us to pause and recall the truth
hat the only justification for the existence
Ul auy lU mUl luallU PImcIlC
and performance its object and purposes
are promotion of the public good and ad
vancement of the welfare and prosperity of
the entire country There never was a party
Platform or declaration of principles
which did not profess these t ings and
make them the foundation of party creed
and any body of men who should openly
iroclaim that they were associated to
gether for the express purpose of gaining I
supremacy in the government with the
sentiment of distributing the offices and
spoil of victory among their associates
would be treated with ridicule and scorn
Thus are we brought face t face with
he proposition that parties should no more
than individuals be untruthful and dishon
est Ofcourse in the supremacy of party
there are advantages to its members and
his is not amiss But when high party
alms and professions are lost I sight of and
abandoned and the benefit of officeholding
and p personal self are all that remain to inspire
spire party activity not only is the confl
deuce of those relied on for patriotic sup
port forfeited but the elements of cohesion
and of effective and lasting political
strength are gone Honest differences of
opinion that must always exist upon ques
tons of principle and public policy should
furnish abundant occasion for the exist
once of usefulness of parties and point out their field
When we seek for the cause of the perpetuity
petuity of the Democratic party and its
survival through every crisis and emer
ency and in the face of all opposition we i
nd in the fact that its corner stone is laid
in the duration of the rights of the people
and sympathy with all things which tend
to the advancement of their welfare and
happiness Though heresy may have some
times crept in its organization and though
party conduct may at times have been influenced
luenced by that shiftiness which is the
habitual device of its opponents there has
always renamed deeply imbedded in t
nature and character that spirit of true
Americanism and that love of popular
rights which has made i indestructible in
disaster and defeat and has constituted it
a boon to its country in its time of triumph
and supremacy
Happily the party creed which we pee
fess is not within such narrow lines that
obedience does not permit us t move
abreast with the advanced thought of
country and to meet and test every ques
ton and apply principle to every situation
True Democracy staunch in its adhesion
to 1 itsfundamental doctrine is at the same
time in a proper sense progressive True
democracy honestly advocates national
brotherhood to the end that all our fellow
countrymen may aid in the achievement of
that grand destiny which awaits us as a
nation and it condemns that pretext of
beiality and harmony which when par
tlsan advantage if toTae gafnod gives way
for inflammatory appeals t sectional
hatred and passion I does not favor the
multiplication of offices and salaries merely
to make parties nor use promise and the
bestwalof place for the purpose of sti
fling the press an bribing the people It
seeks to lighten the burden of life in every
home and to take from the citizens for the
cost of the government the lowest possi
ble tribute
We know that we have espoused the
cause of right and justice we know that
we have not permitted duty to country t
wait upon expedience we know that we
have not trafficked our principles for sue
cess we know that we have not deceive
the people with false promises and preten
ces we know that we have not cor I
rupted nor betrayed the poor with th
money F 1e rich Who shall say thes
things promise no reward and that tr
umph shall not follow the enlighteue
judgment and sober > second thought of our
countrymen j
There are todayno weak weary and
despondent members of the true Demo
cracy and there should be none
Thoughtful attention to political topics
is thoroughly aroused Events are day
by day leading men to review the reason
for their party affiliations and their support
of principles We profess we are constant
recruited by intelligent young and sturdy
adherents Let us deserve their confidence
and shunning all ignoble practice let us re
main steadfast to the Dembcra faith and
to the cause of our country I we are true
and loyal to these the day of our triumph

The Sttiftsnre a Flag Ship and the Amphio
to go to Berhlng Sea I
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch I
WASHINGTON May iThe news that
the British war ship Svsiftsure the admir
als flag ship and the Amphion have been
ordered to cruise in Alaskay waters was the
subect of considerable russia in rtinlomati I
n on
circles yesterday Thes vessels are to
leave Esquimault the latter part of the
month and afterwards will cruise in Alas
kan waters The people at the state de
partment were not disposed to say much
for publication on account l of tie lack of in
formation as to the exact purpose of the
cruise I is admitted to be a novelty for
British vessels to enter Alaskan waters
but it is said that unless the instructions
are of a belligerant character the cruise
nay not have grave significance It is
likely to result however in a little more
cirnumspection on the part of our cruisers
toward the British pirates than would
otherwise be the case just as the pres
ence of our North Atlanllosquadron on the
fishing grounds during thtf fishing season
secured better treatment fishermen
A gentleman who understands our foreign
relations pretty thoroughly intimated
yesterday that the activity of the British
government might b merely a trap set for
our state department The doctrine of a
closed sea which is assisted by inference in
the Presidents proclamation is one which
the government of GreaUBritain would be
very glad it is said to have set up as a
general proposition I would enable her
to close the Bay of Fundy for instance
and strengthen her position in various
parts of the world She may be willing to
forego the privilege of her illegal sealers in
Behring sea i she can bring our govern
ment to an explicit declaration in labor of
the doctrine
Our diplomats argue that the taking of
seal outside of tie threemile limit can bo
prohibited on other grounds than that the
seal is absolutely closed The habits of
the animal justify OUt government in
maintaining that the seals are the property
of the American continent The animals
liive a local habitation from which they go
out to sea but to which they always re
turn This habit of the animal gives the
company a claim to each one which pro
hibits its seizure by outsido parties I is a
piece of property as much as a boat The
hooting of the seals by the outside pirates I
of results pelts in great waste and in the reduction

MURDER WILL OnT
New Developments in the Cele
brated Dr Cronin Case
OFFICER COUGHLIJf UNDER ARREST
The War t is Sworn Out by aBrother of the
Murdered Man What Ir Lomasney
Says Miners Riot
CHICAGO May 2 The air today has
been filled with rumors of important de
velopments arrests etc in connection
with the Cronin case but with one or two ex
ceptions it was next to impossible to con
firm or disprove them owing to the ex
treme reticence of the police authorities although
though the police today denied that P O
Sullivan the ice dealer whose name has
been connected with this mysterious case
from the first had been arrested It is as
serted this evening that he has not been
seen about his home or place
of business l day Although some
of the police officials today de
nied that McGeehan the man
who it is asserted came here from Phila
delphia to aid in the removal of Dr
Cronin is under arrest there seems no
doubt they have him in charge and that im
portant evidence of some nature has been
secured against him This afternoon Harry
Jordan the man who came from Philadelphia
delphia some time ago and who is said to
have ben an intimate friend of McGeehans
was placed under arrest to be held as a
witness It is suspected he knows some
thing of McGeehans movements that may
prove of value He is said to have belonged
to a ClannaGael faction which was op
posed to Cronin and it is charged that he
had frequently denounced the doctor in
public
Detective Dan Coughlin is guarded with
the utmost secrecy no one being allowed
to converse with him without an order
from the mayor or superintendent of police
His partner Detective Whalen who ac
companied Coughlin in his search for the
man for whom Coughlin hired the horse on
May 4 has been suspended from duty
pending an investigation The report that
Turner one of the employees of Sullivan
the ice man had disappeared is denied in
an evening paper which asserts that one
of its reporters saw him today The man
W L King who is under arrest does not
answer the description of the man of that
name who Woodruff says took part in the
removal of the trunk on the night of
Cronin disappearance and though he is
something of a sporting man the police
dont believe he is the man wanted
Luke Dillon who came here from Philadelphia
delphia to assist in ferreting out the murd
erers says he has received a telegram say
ing that the ClannaGael of Philadelphia
has sent him 81000 to forward the work
Woodruff was today shown a picture of
the man King now under arrest but did
not identify it The opinion gains ground
that Woodruffs first story was not a true

The story to the effect that McGeehan

neJ Mrs Lomasney says it is a great

Condemned by the Clan naGael
CHICAGO May 2iThe following is pub
shed here The police have been put in
possession of startling facts concerning
Cronins murder I has been clearly shown
by the dead mans friends that his removal
was ordered by a committee representing
the ClannaGael society Charges of trait
orous conduct were preferred against him
at a meetingjof the ClannaGael camp He
was found guilty and his death was ordered
ered
er
The charge was based on the statement
of the British spy LeCaron that there
were four more spies in America When
LeCaron made that statement on the stand
before the Parnell commission he was
ordered to give the names of the spies
He said he dared not do it because if they
were known they would be murdered Presiding
siding Justice i Hannen then took
him into the anteroom and in 1
the presence of Sir Richard
Webster attorneygeneral and Sir
Charles Russell Parnells attorney L
Caron gave their names Within forty
eight hours after this the news was cable
from London Nearly every Clanna
Gael camp in America met and passed resolutions
pas rs
olutions declaring in favor of a rigid hunt
for the four spies Suspicion justly or un
justly pointed to Cronin A committee
was appointed to try him He was con
victed without having a chance to make a
defense and hi assassins were brought
here from other cities to carry out the
mandate of the committee The later
were chosen by secret ballot His death wa
ordered under a clause in the ClannaGae
bylaws which says that a man can be re
moved for traitorous conduct For nealJ
nine months previous to the time of his
death sentence he had been followed night
and day by a detective whom his friends
employed to protect him against surprise
A detective would have been on his trail
the night lie was murdered had not the
fund been exhausted several weeks before
It is asserted that the murderous conspir
acy would not have ended with Cronin had
not his mutilated body been found There
were other Irishmen on the condemned list
and they would all have shared Cronins
fate had a chance to dispose of them safely
arisen I is also asserted that W J 1
Hynes attorney Father Gleason Captain
JP OConnor John Devoy and two others
have been tried convicted and their death
sentence signed

above the bier and festoons of black and
white twined the bars above it Large
crowds jammed the street before the ar
mory a Oj he police kept a passageway
penior tnosa who wished to enter the fu
neral hall For three hours the procession
sion in doublefile marched across the plat
form Only a picture and the big silver

aers of the New York stock exchange
The ladies sailed for Europe April 10 intending
ending to make a hurried trip through
France to Genoa where they were to rest
until the latter part of July before going to
Paris and London It is probable that
these plans will be interfered with by the
proceedings which the United States are ex
iccted to institute to redress their wrongs
Details of the outrage have just reached
his country in the statement made by Mrs
Dorr Under date of Mentone May 3
Mrs Dorr says On Tuesday we arrived
ill Nice Desiring a dress for Miss Marvin
t applied at the establishment of Mme
jourrien under the Cosmopolitan hotel
Our purpose was to procure a readymade
garment as we intended to remain only
until Thursday morning at Nice Mme
jourrien had nothing readymade an
swering our objections as to our limited
time that if wo would remain at Nice until
Friday morning the dress would be corn
iletedby 10 a m To this we agreed
time Gourrien stated that it would be
equally as easy for her to complete
two dresses so Miss Van Nest
a nraca nn for 5cc1f i
The stipulation was distinctly made that
he garmenss were to fit the young ladies
to their entire satisfaction and to bo deliv
ered on Friday at 10 a m Thursday afternoon
ernoon the young ladies went to Mme
jourriens to have the dresses tried on
Seeing that the garments were far from
finished Miss Van Nostrand said How
axc you going to finish these by 10 a m to
morrow The reply was Theyoung ladies
who sew for us must sit up all night Miss
anNostrand replied Rather than allow
that we will remain until the afternoon
rain Friday but we must certainly have
he dresses by 9 pm To this the dress
maker gladly promised that the dresses
would be at the hotel at 9 pm
At 3 oclock the dressmakers messenger
was announced with the garments He
aid the bill must be paid before the box
vas carried up stairs Miss VanNostrand
paid it and paid 510 francs The box con
tamed only the skirt no waist and there
vas no second dress for which she paid
She replaced the skirt in the box and de
manded the money which after some
hesitation was returned It was then
433 pm and we were notified that we
must leave at 440 In five minutes the
box came back from the dressmakers with
dresses alleged to be complete The trunks
were closed and being carried down stairs
Ve had to hurry to the station and refused
to accept the dresses A man one
of Gourriens representatives followed us
to the railroad station but we told him it
vas too late to negotiate there and if he
choose to send the goods to our banker at
Genoa free of duty the bill would be paid
I have been thus particular stating the
above account because of the outrageous
sequel which came We occupied apart
ments at the Hotel de Mentone After
inner we were informed that some one
desired to see us We found a rough look
tug Frenchman with a piece of paper in his
land He informed us that he was ordered
to arrest us all He read a description of
our persons from the paper but only one
of our names that of Miss Van Nostrand
Expostulations were useless The hotel
keeper accompanied us to the bureau The
person who arrested us with two of their
luxilliaries accompanied us to a miserable
building In the assumed magisterial office
he demanded everything from our pockets
even our handkerchief and gloves We
nt for the Amnricnn consul who arrived
with his secretary Conia Frenchman
and secretly his brotherinlaw an
Italian and said all he could but the man
who arrested us decided we must go to a
cell and be locked up
It was a regular dungeon with a grated
window high in the wall and a smaller one
in the door alongside was a slanting
wooden shelf six feet wide leaving only
landing room on the fleer It was a
damp filthy evil smelling place The con
sul secretary and hotel keeper did all they
could They brought us mattresses and
pillows and had the pleasing consciousness
hat two sentinels patrolling the corridor
occasionally looked in the grating The
consul left promising to telegraph to Nice
and procure our release under surveillance
tour rooms in the hotel At 1 oclock in
the morning we were released under
surveillance taken to the hotel and locked
in a policeman keeping guard at the door
with the freedom of looking in at his pleas
nrc Next morning at 030 we
wOre ordered to prepare to go to
he house of the commissary of
police Miss Van Nostrand refused
to go unless she had the protection of the
consul At 745 Miss Van Nostrand was
old that she must go at once to the com
issarys There she met Mme Gourrien
and husband also an Englishspeaking
saleswoman All gave positively false tes
timony about the transaction The French
authorities at Nice had telegraphed that
the Van Nostrand party could be released
upon the payment of the bill otherwise
they must remain in durance vile not in
he hotel but in prison The commissary
gave Miss Van Nostrand five minutes in
which to decide between paying the entire
bill > with costs or go back to the dungeon
Of course she paid
As the matter now stanas we nave oeen
put in prison insulted beyond expression
compelled to pay over one hundred dollars
for garments not delivered and all in the
name of French law
On the advice of the consul at Mentone
we went to Nice at once and laid the mat
ter before Albert Hathaway the American
consul Mr Hathway was much shocked
that such an outrage could be perpetrated
rat he did not see clearly what could be
done in retaliation The American consul
at Mentone M A Clericy advised us
to enter proceedings at once for
damages for false imprisonment Other
American tourists who heard of our treat
ment declare that the interests of all Amer
leans abroad demand the publication of the
acts and the notification of the French
authorities either by our minister at Paris
or by our state department that such out
rage cannot be inflicted with impunity upon
Americans
Gardner Van Nostrand nephew of Mrs
Dorr and brother of Miss Nostrand and a
ellknown resident of Newburg N Y
has been in communication with Secretary
Blame He has an appointment to lay all
the facts before the secretary of state next
