MURDERER EYKAUD
Farther Details of His Arrest He Talks of His
Love For La Bompard
Special to THE HEIUXD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK May 29Further details of the
capture of Eyraud have been received by tho
Courier C StatS Utiis from Havana Tho day
after the murderers interview with M Gautier
tho police formed a cordon around the store of
K Pu ben At twilight they hid behind every
available tree in thp vicinity
One night about 1 oclock the vigil of tho of
ficers was rewarded by the sight of a suspicious
looking character walking past Puchens store
on Campostele del Key Good evening of
fleer said Eyraud for it was no other than tho
murderer
Where are you going asked the officer
stepping up to him To Hotel Roma where I
lye said the Frenchman attempting to push
forward The officer attcmptng signal
to his hidden confederates and in
stantly much to the surprise of tho doomed
captivo dark figures glided quickly from be
hind all the trees Before ho recovered from
his astonishment he was pounced upon and his
arms pinned He was instantly searched on
the spot and only a revolver was found on him
When brought into the lighted room of the sta
tion his face was as white as death his lips
trembled and cold beads of perspiration stood i
out on his forehead A second search revealed I
the fact that he was armed with a glittering
poniard He was taken to Puchens store
again and the boy proprietor and wife identified
him In his cell that night Eyraud tried to
cheat justice by opening the veins in his leg and
teeth arm withhis eyeglass which he broke with his
There i one subject on which Eyraud seems
much inclined
more iclned to talk freely than on any
other This is h intimacy with Gabrielle Bam
pard Whether from cynicism or from a spirit
boasting orto awaltninterst by posing asthe
victim of an overwhelming passionate love
Eyraudlikes to recall the story of his intrigues
When some onQasked him i he did not hate
Gabrielle Bompard because she had denounced
him he said I adore her more than ever
She is the most intoxicating most fascinating
woman I ever met I was too happy with her
to be able to complain of the harmshe has since
done me Then he told with evident compla

Tariff in the Senate
VoSIXGIO x May 21The Senate finance
committee this morning took up the tariff bill
and considered it by paragraphs subject to sub
sequent action The chemical schedule was
the fiist taken up I was decided first not to
recommend free alcohol r the arts as that
question affected many other items in the
schedule After going over thirtyeight items
thirteen of the most important being passed
without action the noon hour arrived and the
question of future meetings was broached
Senator Sherman suggested daily sessions of
ten hours each in order to hurry matters
through sides This met with opposition from both
Carlisle and Voorhees said it was a waste
of time as the matters must be discussed in the
Senate anyhow Voorhees thought the Repub
licans could agreo on the bill and the Demo
crats i they thought best could present a mi
nority report
Hicock Jones and Morrill spoke in a similar
strain Hiscock moved that a subcommittee
on each side be appointed to prepare such
schedules as would be advocated by its party on
the poor of the Senate that each side submit
its schedule to the other as soon as prepared
Adopted No change was made as to the ques
tion of giving oral hearing Changes made in
the chemical schedule today arc all reductions
they were proposed by reductont sup
ported by a solid Democratic vote and the vote
of the member making the motion None of
them are of any significance
The committee will grant hearings to repre
presentatlves importers Tuesday The Dem
ocratic members wil not formulate a bill but
will express thel v ows in a report
Senator Plumbt day proposed as an amend
ment to the Mold aley bill the bill introduced
by him for tho appointment of a permanent
customs commission to investigate and report

statute Burns a few years ago opened up in
Augusta an original package business sel

other countries claiming the state had no right
under the United States constitution to inter I
fere with his business The case was
ieditP step by step until now
it i decided in Burns favor The court
says in part The Iowa case just decided by
the supreme court of the United States clearly
settles the question Wo are bound by that
decision to reverse the ruling below and sus

I the Senate
WASHINGTON May 29 Stewart rising to a
question personal privilege had read an ar
ticle from a local paper containing a statement
by Major Powell director of the geological sur
vey in reference to Stewarts recent res olution
in which Powell spoke of the movement as in
stigated by land sharks and speculators for the
purpose of gobbling up the irrigable lands and
establishing a sort of hydraulic feudal system
Stewart sketched an outline of what had been
done in the work of stimulating irrigation in the
i t1 ft
west recently and the appropriations Powell
he said had used more than half of the appro
priation in vast and expensive surveys of no
practical use for the object in view and intimated
mated that Powell had enormous power in both
houses from his giving employment to a lot of
young mel sons and relatives of members of
Congress and that he kept an enormous lobby
in Washington to control tho action of Con
gress The bureau of geology and mineralogy
was nothing Stewart said but a mass of hum
bug and foolishness
Gormau defended Major Powell as a valuable
nubile officer who discharged his duty faith
Teller introduced a jointresolution setting
forth that it is the determined policy of the
United States government to use both gold and
silver as full legal tender money under the
ratio now existing in the United States or which
may hereafter be established by the United
States alone or acting in accord with other
nations Laid on the table and ordered printed

Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YpiitCMay 21In Herman Oelriehs of
New Yank Mlss Fair of San Francisco mar
ies a man of the world I can be truthfully
said of Mr Oelrichs that hitherto very few men
have enjoyed their lives so thoroughly and few
have known so well how to enjoy them He has
been a constant but uuobstruslvo figure in New
York social life many years He i exactly
forty years of age yet he is as much the Alci
blades some might say the Mark Antony as
ever No detail of his personality indicates how
much puzzled is the average man about him
is that of his age CEven during the last few
weeks this has been placed at all sorts of
figures from thirtysix to fifty years Let this
doubt be set at rest June 8 1850 in Baltimore
was tho exact date of his birth and he is young
for his years Ho became prominent In social
political and financial Circles by no startling
episode or heroic actions but by average
traits of character and gifts of temperament
which won for him prestige in various direc
tions He became the head of the firm of Oel
rich Co almost before any of his friends or
relatives realized i He is exceedingly quiet
in his business methods but effective In attain
Ing substantial results The social prestige of
his mothers family gave him the entree to
New York social life The DeCoureys came
over with Lord Baltimore and the Mays who
married Into that family have not forgotten the
fact nor allowed others to forget it Although
educated in quiet Baltimore he grew up as a
boy inNew York and after an elaborate educa
tion In Germany returned to tho city of his
adoption to till what has really been his most
important role that of a man about town His
career in this capacity dates from 1871 The
foundation of his reputation as an early poll
ticianbonvivant and financier were all well laid
when Miss Fair had attained the grandiose age
of one
Among Mr Oelriehs early affinities was the
beautiful Miss Fannie Work now Mrs Burke
Roche Oelriehs has always been a passionate
admirer of beauty and Miss Work was exceed
ingly beautiful About the same time Mr Oel
richs was paying attention to the daughter of
his banker friend the late Mr Montague the
actor was also in attendance The cause of
Oelriehs break with Miss Work was character
istic He was an intimate friend of Montague
as was also the young ladys father Frank
Work I was Miss Works disdain of Mon
tacue account of his profession that angered
the spirited young Herman and caused the t
glamour of her beautv to fade from his eyes
Miss Work married Roche out of pique and L
Oelriehs went west oftener than ever A fear
less rider with a spirit for adventure that noth
ing could subdue Oelriehs became the hero ol
many an incident mythical and true How
ever he kept up his membership at the differ
ent clubs and although being for the time a
cowboy he never forgot he was a city man His
return to New York was always an event with the I
gay set of which ho was the most prominent
member Archie Belmont James Gordon Ben
nett Ikey Bell jr afterwards minister to the i
Netherlands Schuyler Crosby who had that
little difference with Russell Harrison Martin I
and Travis C Van Boron grandsons of the fa
mous President Van Buren and Wright San
ford Oelriehs made himself both useful and I
entertaining to this merry crew The Oelrlch 3
cocktail is still known all over Manhatta 1
island and its fame has crossed tho water It
waer
is a favorite beverage with the Duke of Beau
forts set in London
As a married man Mr Oelriehs ought to be
able to maintain an excellent cuisine as the
following incidents will show About Christ
mas a year ago during the course of an after
dinner conversation Colonel John R Fellows
district attorney of New York remarked that
no one ever tasted a perfect dish of terrapin
unless it had been prepared by Mr Oelriehs
There were quite a number of local politicians
present who thought they knew some t
thing about terrapin Frank L Palmer
Judge Maurice J Power Fred PaimexS
and a gentleman only known to fame
as Terrapin Tom These worthies of New
York local politics disputed Mr Oelriehs
rights to the palm Then let us have a contest
and decide this matter quietly remarked Fel
lows Each of you shall bring a dish and the
most famous terrapin you can obtain and I am
willing you should all be judges of the feast
Terrapin Tom sent to Philadelphia for his
sample procuring three different samples from
Philadelphia caterers There was also a dish
of terrapin from Washington one from Baltl
timore and two from New York restaurants
Including the famous Travers variety Mr
Oelriehs cooked his terrapin at home and
warmed it over in a chafing dish at the private
apartments where the contest took place Each
dish was numbered by an outsider and the
judges wrote their opinions on a card Number
U was the winning number and i was soon dis
covered that No 0 had the name of Herman
Oelriehs after i on the list which had been pre
pared before the beginning of the contest This
prize winning dish strange to relate did not
contain one drop of Madena or any other wine
Terrapin butter salt and pepper were the only
ingredients used
A prince in trifles is Herman Oelriehs I
pass over little episodes of Mr Oelriehs gal
lantry which have connected his name with the
beauty and genius of the stage I Is quite
unnecessary to say however that Mr Oelriehs
chivalry has always been quite equal to his ap
preciation ot charm Living In the hot bed apf
luxury hehas remained a trained athlete and
prudent man of business for surely a man to
whom ocean swimming Is a pasttime Is not to
bo confounded with the green room lounger
Most New York men of fashion think just from
Seabright to Long Branch long enough for a
ride and quite too long for a walk Oelriehs
thinks nothing of swimming this distance in the
ocean in 1888 he came near having
been carried out to sea by the
tide but he was entirely oblivious
of the fact He was rescued by a friend who
happened to be cruising about at the time I was
with quite some difficulty he was induced to go
on board On his return to shore he was asked
whether ho was alarmed at his narrow escape
No said ho quietly but I was hungry and it
was lunch time Besides escaping n watery
grave Miss Fairs future husband narrowly
missed being burned to death and this in the
very midst of his wooing Last year his bachelor
quarters near the Union club the property of
James Gordon Bennett took fire and had it not
been for the promptness of tim fire department
there would be no wedding to celebrate or
chronicle The death of Wright Sanford was a
great blow to Oelriehs The Monday suppers
given in their apartments were a feature of
the gayer side of New York lire They
were such affairs as Theophile Gauthler and
Catullq Mendes would have delighted to de
scribe in Paris Sometimes these suppers were
chaperoned and sometimes they were not The
two hundred quite as often as the four hun
dred were perfect In matters of this kind
Oelriehs is more than a man he Is an artist
Will the husband ot Senator Fairs heiress ever
be mayor of New York city The best judges of
political fortunes here ssiynot Oelriehs Is a
politician for the same reason that he is every
thing elseit is a part of his manysided char
acter as a man of the world but he will never
sacrifice pleasure to ambition He may
be minister to Paris or Vienna
but he does not really aspire to be
mayor of this city or President of the United
States yet he has frequently been namedfor
the former position and several of his devotees
have been rash enough think he might some
day be the dark horse in a presidential race
As it is however ho represents the Demo
cratic party in its national committee and no
doubt pulls an athletic stroke during important
political campaigns
He fell In love with Miss Fair in 1887 and
has since been continuously devoted to her It
Is undoubtedly a fact that it was tho persistency
and tact which ho displayed iu his courtship
which won the day Mr W H Gilberts saying
la amply vindicated in his case His not so
much the gallant who woos as the gallants
tray of woofnir
A report reached the city from California to
day that Herman Oelriehs who is to marry Miss
Tessie Fair in San Francisco on June 0 had or

bined weight Is 890 pounds and if they were to
stand on one anothers heads they would make

eb
be quite safe under their protection The
bridal party will come east immediately after
the wedding From the Grand Central depot

Special toTEm HERALD Examiner Dispatch
BUFFALO May 29Mr George Kennan who
is now In this city was asked by a reporter of the
Commercial today whether he had anything to
say with regard to the recently published Inter
view in which Mr Dunston viceconsulgeneral
of the United States in
return for having ac
cused him of making exaggerated and sensa
tional statements concerning Siberian prisons
and the exile system I have this to say that
Mr Dunston does not seem to have the most
rudimentary knowledge of the subject upon
which he talks As for the Siberian prisons in
particular I do not know what Mr Dunston can
possibly know about them since he has neither
inspected them himself nor read the reports ot
officers who have inspected them He thinks
that I misrepresented and exaggerated their
views It Is unnecessary to discuss that ques
tion since their condition has been fully and
frankly described by the governor ceneral ol
eastern Siberia in three official reports to the
Czar copies of which are In my possession la
first of these reported GovernorGeneral Ant
chin says During my journey to Irkutsk I in
spected a great number of prison institutions
and I regret to say that with the exception ol
the prison castles in Krasnsyork and Cikoutsk
they are all that id the circuit prisons forward
Ing prisons and etapes in a lamentable condi
lion The etapes are particularly bad
In a later report the governorgeneral de
clares that not notwithstanding the long prac
ticed exile of criminals the exile system is In
tne most unsatisfactory condition The etapes
forwarding prisons and other prisons now with
the very fewest exceptions are tumbledown
buildings in bad sanitary condition cold in
winter saturated with miasma and to crown
all affording very little security against es
capes The prisons in NizshnI Udnlsh China
Nerchinsh Blagovescuchinsk and NikblaeTsh
astound one by their bad condition Tne rea
sons for such a melancholy condition of the
prisons are many They are bad because all
the prison buildings in the empire except the
principal ones recently built are bad and
especially because they were built rapidly with
insufficient means and almost entirely without
sunervisioneither administrative or technical
Speaking in the same report of the life of tho
exiles on the road the governor general says
Parties of prisoners under guard of A convoy
command go on foot from etape to etape and
are whole months on the way while the hard
labor convicts who must go to the upper Aiaoor
do not reach their destination in less than a
year from the time when they enter eastern Si
beria In the etapes the criminals and theirfam
nles who voluntary accompany them are kept
as far as possible in separate cells but they
spend the greater part of the day together The
scenes of debauchery to be witnessed hero can
not possibly be described All the shame and
conscience that a prisoner has left are lost here
completely There go to Russia also the fami
lies that voluntarily accompany criminals into
exile without regard to ago or sex The sub
sistence of the prisoners on the road Is very ex
pensive to the government but the exiles are
badly fed Receiving food money In the shape
of cash in hand they rarely have warm food and
are very scantily subsisted although jnnmnT
able rules have been established by law for the
regulation of the exile system such rules be
come for the most part dead letters from the
very day of their enactment on account of their
impracticality and the absence of supervision
In the light of these extracts from official
S rpnfr il rf cnqtrn
Siberia to the Czar I should like to ask Air
Dunston in what respect he thinks the Russian
prison system Is better than our own and what
raises the prisoners described by Governor
General Autchin to an equal plane with any in
our own country But perhaps he thinks the
governorgeneral of eastern Siberia is also a
sensationalist given to exaggeration Such is
not the opinion of the better Informed and more
competent judges than the American vice con
sulgeneral on the very report from which I
have just quoted The present Czar Alexander
III has endorsed in his own handwriting the
significant words A melancholy but not a new
picture
Will Mr Dunston try to maintain that the
Czar of all the Russias is also a sensationalist
exaggerating the defects of his own system of
government I would only add that if Vice
ConsulGeneral Dunstons report to the consular
nureau with regard to trade and commerce in
Russia are made with as little knowledge of the
subject as his statements concerning the Rus
sian prison system they are not likely to ho
of much value to American merchants
