Senator Faulkner Decides to Re
commend His Appointment to
the President, and Files the
Papers in the Case With the De
partment of Justice — Senator ,
Faulkner’s Reasons for Selecting I
Mr. Wells-Purely a Matter of
Geography.
Special to the Register.
Washington, 1). C., February 29.
Senator Faulkner decided to-day to
^i\* his endorsement for the marshal
ship to Mr. Charles Wells, of Glovers
Cap. and he filed the papers in the case
a- the D. partment of Justice before go
ing to his home in Martlnsburg.
There was some surprise at the Sen
ator s action, owing to the very strong
fight made for the selection of one of
tin candidates from the First district.
When asked his reason for indorsing
Wells, the Senator said:
••With the numerous applicants, all
of whom were good Democrats, 1 had
much difficulty in determining what
was the proper thing to do. A number
o’ tho-e who applied were so located
that it was impossible to consider their
names, because it would throw the ap
pointment in proximity, geographical
ly. to one or the other of the two gen
tlemen now holding federal offices in
the State, the district attorney and the
mill'-tor of iutornul revenue, l-rom
the time l heard of the sad death of
>! \ Garden I was of the opinion that
the appointment should go north of a
line drawn through Lewis county. As
there were only three large federal
ot!n • ' for the whole Stale, and four
Congressional districts, I felt that geo
g ic. 1 location of these offices and
not district lines should he considered,
and having determined this, i consid
ered the claims of all north of the line
of which 1 have spoken
FROM THE SENTIMENT
of those whom I met at Parkersburg,
md from communications received
lr re, 1 felt that the appointment of
Mr. Wells would best meet the require
ments of the situation. He is in every
way <>>rup' ent and his endorsements
covered not only his own section, but
every o : < r section of the State.
“Before reaching this conclusion,
however, I satisfied myself that the
successor of Mr. Card, n could not in
any way influence matters affecting his
ate. 1 felt the warmest personal
regard for him, and the deepest sym
pathy for his family, and investigated
luit qurs ion in order to ascertain what
bearing the appointment of his succes
sor would have upon any pending ac
counts of Mr. Garden as marshal. I
found that his accounts were settled
and balanced up to January 1st, 1S96.
and that all subsequent to that time
were of record in books in his office
ami would be turned over at once to
Mis personal representatives. No one
can regret more than myself my ina
bility to satisfy all. but from the
light before me I have done the best l
could looking to the interest of the
:v.r:y throughout the entire State. I
understand that it will be the policy of
Mr. Wells to make no change in the
force now employed in the marshal's
office. * xcept when necessary and for
cause.

A Farmer From Calhoun County
Bumps Agaiust a Gang
Of Green Goods Operators in Park
ersburg, and Drops Seyentyflvo
Dollars on Their Game — Two
Brothers Named Poling, Who
Claim to Have Also Come Out
Loser, Held as Accomplices of
the Weston Sawdust Gang.
Special to the Register.
Parkersburg, W. Ya., February 29.—
An old farmer named Herman A. Witte,
of Calhoun county, was swindled out
of about $75 to-day, supposedly by a
man named Jesse Poling, also of Cal
houn county, who. together with his
brother, Chester, came to this city last
night.
Poling met Witte at the Commercial
Hotel, and told him if he would give
him the money he would make "a deal
for him by which he would get two dol
lars for every one.
The old man turned over the money
to Poling, who later informed Witte
that he had lost Witte’s money as well
as his own and displayed a bundle of
green goods which consisted of a pack
age of blank paper with $1 bills on the
top and bottom.
Chief of Police Heaton head of the
"deal,* and arrested the Polings.
When arrested about $100 was found
on them and a dangerous looking gun.
While being searched, Chester took
front his pocket a letter and began
ehewiniv it. The officers choked him
and forced him to
Tl'RX OVER THE LETTER,
which read ns follows:
“Cumberland, Md., February 23.
“Mr. Charles Poling.
“Dear Sir:—If you want to make an
other deal with me, eoma to Weston,
Lewis county, W. Va.. and T will be
there from the middle of the month till
the last of the month. Come it you
want more of it, as you are aware it’s
all right and you will find me at the
hotel which you met me at before. I
am doing a big business in your county
now.
“Sincerely vours,
“J. P. DOUN.”
Witte swore out a warrant for Jesse
Poling, and he was given a hearing and
was bound over in the sum of $500 to
appear before the next Criminal Court
grand jury, but he failed to give bond
and was placed in jail.
Chester Poling was also fined $56 for
carrying a revolver.
Toling claims that he met Doun at
the Commercial hotel last night and the
“deal’’ was made by which he turned
over the money and received a bogus
package in return. The officers take
no stock in the Polings’ story and claim
IT IS ONLY \ FAKE
manufactured by them to rob the old
man. Of late several letters have been
received here from Weston, and the
officers think the Polings are accom
plices of the "green goods” dealer
there.
TWO ACCIDENTS.
The Steamer Ailsa Cut Down and
Sunk by a French Liner—The New
York Stuck in tile Sand Near New
York.
New York, February 29.—The Atlas
line steamer “Ailsa” was run down at
2:20 o'clock to-day by a French line
steamer, supposed to be the Bourgoyne,
while anchored in the channel oil Fort
Hamilton. The steamer which struck
the Ailsa pulled away from the vessel
and disappeared in the mist. All on
board escaped without injury, owing to
the prompt arrival oi a large tug.
A dense log prevailed in the bay and
Captain J. W. Morris decided to an
chor his vessel until the fog lifeted.
The fog bell was kept going as a
warning. When the crash came, there
was absolutely no warning. The big
black hull of the French liner struck
the anchored ship about forty feet from
the bow.

Chicago, February 29.—Three of a
family of eight dead and the other five
! dying is the frightful result of the es
J cape of coal gas in the residence of
Fred Stuenkel, a farmer living a few
i miles southwest of Chicago heights,
| near Crete, Will county. Physicians
attending the family say the mother
: and four of the Stuenkel children will
: die.
.TilK DEAD ARE:

father.

KATE STUENKEL, aged 43, the
mother.
ARTHUR STUENKEL, aged 10.
REN ETA STUENKEL, aged 5
months.
WILLIAM STUENKEL, aged 10.
The Stuenkel family has been prom
inent in Crete for nearly forty years,
and the news of their misfortune caused
great excitement among the farmers in
this vicinity. About three o'clock
this morning Mrs. Stuenkel was awak
ened by one of the children down stairs
crying
The father, with Della and Arthur,
slept in a large bed room down stairs.
On the floor above the other members
of the family slept. In the lower
room was a large hard coal stove,
which had been tilled for the night.
.Mrs. Stuenkel as she went down stairs
called to Rosa and said she feared the
child was ill. She found her husband
lying upon the bed writhing in agony
1 and moaning. Arthur was on the floor
behind the stove unconscious. Della
was on the bed with her father cry
ing.
No one seemed to think of the coal
gm and the door was kept shut for
le. of fooling of the room. The
daughter called to the other children
to come down stairs. The baby, Re
neta, had been crying and was brought
along. A few minutes after the fam
ily had gathered in the father's room
each member began acting in a pecu
liar manner.
The baby went to sleep. William
fell to the lloor and crawled outside into
the kitchen. The mother became so
dizzy she had to leave the room. Rosa
mond remained with her father, and in
a short time the gas fumes overcame
her, and she fell to the floor. The
girl was found there dead some hours
later.
Not one member of the family seemed
to notice the hot stove and the gas.
The children ran about half dazed, al
ways closing the door behind them.
The mother and oldest son fell pros
trate upon the kitchen lloor.
William recovered sufficiently to
crawl out into the yard- There he was
seen by his uncle Henry from an ad
joining house. Physicians were imme
diately sent for and everything possi
ble was tione for the surviving mem
bers of the family.

WASHINGTON. D. C„ February 29.—
The administration is reluctant to recog

insurgents, much less recognizing their in
dependence. This Is liiisc-d upon the best
information from the seat of trouble. The
general tendency of consular reports is
that the insurgent cause is not hearly as

executive authorities prolnthly will take

A COMPLIMENT TO FAULKNER.
Elected Chairman of the Cxinpaign Com* ;
in it tee iu Spite of lli* Deitirti Not to hr
fonilili'rrd.
Special to the Register.
Washington, February 2T—Senator
Faulkner was re-elected chairman of
the Congressional Campaign Committee j
by acclamation, and in a way which is ;
highly complimentary to the Senator. |
He was not present when the commit- ;
tee met for reorganization, being at
the time in Parkersburg attending the
meeting of the State Executive Com
mittee.
Before the meeting of the Congres
I sional Committee for reorganization,
Senator Faulkner informed its mem- ,
bers that he was unwilling to accept 1
I the position of chairman, because lie
j felt that the duties of that position
might render it impossible for him to
give that attention to the campaign in
West Virginia which he desires before ;
the fall election. He felt that his duty i
was primarily to the party in his State
in this campaign, and for that reason,
as his name had been mentioned for the
chairmanship of the Congressional
Committee, lie noped it would not be
considered. When ii.- Congrt ssijnai
Committee met, however, it soon dc
| veloped there was but one sentiment !
among the members representing both
the House ami the Senate. This vas
that Senator Faulkner should he i -
elected chairman, and this sentiment ■
: overruled his own personal wishes in
j the matter. Speeches were made com- j
mendatory of his efforts during the '
last campaign, and t hr* ability with j
which he had managed the affairs of!
the committee, and at the conclusion of
these remarks Senator Faulkner was re
elected by acclamation. It is not known
| positively whether or not Senator
i Faulkner will accept the chairmanship.
It is certain he does not desire to take
! any position which will limit his per
I sonal efforts in the approaching cam
paign in West Virginia. The pressure
brought to bear upon him to accept
the position of chairman of the Con
gressional Committee lias been very j
I heavy, and it is hoped here that ar
J rangements ran he made hv which he j
I can supervise the workings of the com
I niittoe and also la* enabled to take a
j personal and active part in the cam
paign in West Virginia.
