A pretty girl stow away was aboard. That was what the bluff captain, Francis Edwards, reported when he moored hia Drig rigged steamer Antwerp, seventeen days out from Ant werp, Belgium, at Jewel's wharf in Brook lyn yesterday. Annie Wildams.nineteen years of aife, is a pretty girl and is quite a heroine, for she has the honor of teing the tirrit female etowaway that ever came to American ahor-e. From the time of her discover? Annie received the bet treatment. Her story merited iL She had married an Englishman named At kins and tailed with h:ru for Europe, levying in h e care all her money. $12,500, which she had drawn from thn banic. When the steamer reached its Queens town destination Mrs. Williams said that her husband wanted her to accompany him to Antwerp on business. "We reached there about Aug. 1," she conticufd. "and 6tay' d there together un til about Dec 15, when my husband asked me to remain a few dava in our hotel, as he had to run into the interior of Bt-lgium. I waited as he told m, but he never came back, and after he had b en gone a week I received a itt?er from which I nearly went mad." 'Ihe letter, Mrs. Wiliiams said, informed her that her husband had cruelly deserted her. It also told her that she had been left penniless. "I remained heart-broken in Antwerp, not knowing what to do. Then on the day the Antwerp sai ed I was out walking on the pier to which she was moored. I don't know what I made me do it, but I walked aboard of her, dresed jut es I was in etreet attire ami with no baggage." Mrs Williams said that she hurried be tween decks and ensconced herelf in a state room in the c&!in. There fhu re mained unmolested until the vessel waa far out at sea, "Oa the morning of the second day out." the fair stowaway added, "1 couid stand the pangs of hunger no longer.'

CARNEGIE COMES HOM E And Henry Cla Frick Ilti a Talk tvith His Chief". New Yoeic, Jan. i'3. Amon? the pas sengers on the North German Lloyd steamship Kaiser Wilhelm II, which arrived today from Genoa, were Andrew Carnegie, his wile snd Miss WhiteSwid, Mrs. Carnegie's sister, who bad been abroad for some time. Mr. Carnegie and his party were the first to leave d.rectly the fchip was u ado fast in her her berth, and entering a coach they were driven rapidly away. At Mr. Carnegie's house at 5 W. Fifty -first-it., Henry Clay Frick met his chief and for sowral hours the two were closeted together. To a'l requests for an interview Mr. Carnegie sent word that be bad noth ing to pay for publication. Before Mr, Frich left Homestead he wes reported to have said tnat everything at the scene of the recent strike waa jast as ha wanted it and that it would remain so unless Mr. Carnegie should "put hia foot in it" when he arrived home. The long onfer-nce today was, it is said, caused by the lieu tenant's elTorLs to keep MrJCarneftie's foot out of it. Jarues B. Fcott of Tittiburg called on his chief later in the day. At the time of the Homestead strike Mr. Carneeie was said to have decided to withdraw the offer he had made to donate a public library for the city of Pittsburg and Mr. Scott is here to make an elfort to have the oiler remain good.

Much Unauthentic Stuff in Gotham Paper. Which I a Very Great Way OiT from the Facts The Prc.ldent-Elect De liberate and Careful in Ills Consid eration of Men T1m3 Senatorial Situ ation in Some ol ! e Slates Growing Very Interesting1 a "Well as Compli Cited. New Yofk, Jan. 22. Special. The ab sence of the president-elect in Otdo in at tendance at the funeral of ex-President Hayes naturally stops a good deal of the ! gossip about cabinet-making, although some of it has gone on eveD in his absence. This is mainly due to the fact that much of it has never had the s-ightest foundation in truth and ha-t no dependence upon hia presence or absence. Many complete cabinet slates have been made up and published from time to time, but they have been purely specula tive and the t an who must finally be con sulted has known ess than noihin about them. Many men have been thns putin j to the cabinet withont seeking it on their I own part and without any knowledge of them by the presidentelect. It is safe to say that in spits of all this help the work of cabinet-miking goes forward verv alowiv. end not more than j two ef thn eight members have thus far been chosen, and even one of these has not been assigned, to any particular de partment. There is 10 longer conceal ment about Carlisle and Lamont and yet it in doubtful whether Mr. Clevelr.nd hs distinctly in mind any other member of his official family. He is not a man to go about making "tenders of p ares of this magnitude until l e is thoroughly con vinced that it is the right aa wed as the expedient thing to do. One thinu that at ems certain is that far less than the utual attention is being given to claims and to pe gra phi- si considera tions. Mr. Cleve. and looks upn his second election as a cell to do a certain great work and to do it in such a war that it will bs eÜective and permanent. He hxs been heard to declare since the election that i'. '- believed the work of tariff revtiod tou4v. ba bst promoted by doice so be would not hesitate to take every r.mbr of; his cabinet from ,the Fame state. YVhiU this was an exaggerated way of at a tin the caae, it illustrates with accuracy the attitude of the president elect toward hts cabinet advisers, aa well as to the political questions of the future that he deems important and vital. While slow progress lias been made in the work of making- the cabinet it is not the result of & scarcity of candidates or suggestions. iMany names have been pre sented, even inr a formal way, some of them by viite from delegations, of whom the pub.ic hsA had no information what ever. In most case senators, coneressmen and prominent men who put forward a caudidate from a siven state or section, talk about it witii much freedom, hut there are some excep tions to this, and so attention has been railed to the names of men without the fact becoming noned abroad. In other rae?, men whoje names are mentioned forsuch favor, have refused to permit friends to write letters or make any move ment in any wav recognizing the fact. As a result ol this no president has ever had so little of self-seeking to deal with, or has been left more free to do as he thonht best, than has the man who is now patiently seekinz to make up a cabi net that will best promote the welfare of his coutrymen and the success of his ad ministration. Neither is Mr. Cleveland givinir much time or attention to places lower in grade than thone of the cabinet. He manifestly looks upon it cs necassary that be should do the hi stand mot important thing first and that in doing this he should have all the help he can tret from hia advisers. So tii-epe will bo consulted with much free dom about the men proposed as their col leagues durii.g the next four years, al though the country mut know by this time that tliH president-elect finally de cides ab euch thiuvs for himself. Much of the matter published tn the lo cal papers here about Mr Cleveland's movements is entirely unworthy of cre dence. The prei lent-elect has been too busy to receive repurteis tdiber at his of fice or at his house, even if he were not naturally disinclined to do to, bow or at any other time. In spite of this precaution, or perhaps because of it, he is otten represented as do ing things he never thought of. as seeing uieu who have not been near him, and as gointf to places he ha never visited. Only lust week he was represented as having spent tho day at a cub in consultation with Senator Viiaa when he did not leave bis house and the senator was not in town. So, interviews attributed ! a 1 . i ph aw SB, aAtnurl .. aa fiMaj1 t f IU USUI 1(1 0 DUiUSIItlIBB pi IIal7U VI which he has no knowledge, nevtr having seen the men who wrote them. Some of these have taken the regular colloquial j form and migtit deceive even the persons who know liiui. In like manner his friends are often credited with things they have never said. Onlv a few days aso CoL Lamont was represented as ex pressing opinions be had never held or thouaht of about the senatorial contests in various states as well as on New York politics. In gensral the president-elect has been fairly fortunate thus far in his dealings with newspapers, because of the fact that the thing invented have btf?n less harm ful than usual. Most of the papers every where have not sought to publish euch a great mass of news about him as they did after his election in 18S4. He goes about hia work with little regard to these thin a, taking no steps to correct misapprehensions, thouh contin uing bv bis conduct to give little excuse for their extsteuce. He does not take the public into his confidence now any more than at previous periods in his career, but, at the same time, he takes occasion that no news of his act'nns that is really im portant shah be concei led from the' pub lie. THURSTON OUT OF IT. The Nebraska Senatorial Situation About a Clear as ?Iad. Omaha, Jan. J2. The Bee tomorrow morning will print a letter from John M. Thurston, formally withdrawing from the senatorial contest. Mr. Thurston states as his reason that the interests of his client, the Union Pacific railway company, demands his full attention, and he is, ttierefore, constrained to forcco his ambition p -iiiically. This move will have the e ect of strengthening the position of Mr. Paddock, but it wid not give him a clear track bv any means. Goveanor Crounz is coming forward more and more and, next to Paddock, has now the moat strength on the republican side. On the Dart of the independents much speculation is stilt indulged :u. Al though during the preliminary ballot ing of lat week the populists' vote waa concentrated on Power it 13 by no peans certain he will have the full fol ow ing of hia arty alter Tuesday. The dem ocrats flounder along, dividing their fifteen votes among a half dozen candi dates. They hope to secure a compro mise. In this event. Congressman McKeighrm teems to be the strongest man in the race. If he can consolidate the independents he is almost certain to get the democratic votes needed. But the best posted politicians say there will be no choice before late in February. Legislative Notes. The ballot for U. S. senator in Montana resulted: Sandern, 27; Clark, IS; Dixon, 11 ; Collins, 2. No choice. Two ballots wre taken for V.

It is said that the New York statu ma chine baa a three corners 1 plan.

DEMFSEY'S STORY. The "Defendant in the nomestead Case Says No Poison Was Used. PiTTSseni, Jan. 15. The defense in the Homestead poisoning cases atrainat Huh Ieuipajv occupied this m'rnin's session of court by examining a lang- number of witne-ees to prove that sickness in the mib sras not unusual. Many workmen testified that previous to Vm atrik they had suffered from illness, tho symptoms of which were tdmilar to these which killed some oi the nou-uniou men. At the afternoon session the defendant, Hugh Dempsey. was called. He raid: "I an district mas' er workman of D. A. So. 3 K. of U The K. of had nothing to do with the Homes leal strike; the Amalga inated aaociatioo had charge of that. I tirtt saw (.ja!a;her in my office ; he was brouifht there by Beattv; Mr. Davidson was there; they were introduced to tns by IWatly; HeiUty said they were men who were to go to Homestead, gat work and report to me how thing- were running in the mill; nothing was said about putting powdsr in food; did not employ them for that purpose ; 1 told them I had four men in the mid at the time, but that I wanted more reports 60 that I could by statistics ehow that the Carnetrie company was not succeeding with non-union men. Gal lagher would come down two or three tnr.es a weck. I promised them compen sation but told them to ect work in the mil , so that the company would have to pay them ; never gave Gallagher any pow der ; did not say 1 wanted to give th S3 men anything to weaken them ; did not ta k to them about a strike in Chicago; I was in Homestead frequently; in tho mill only once; know nothing about any plot to oolson." Much stir was created in the court room during Mr. Dempsey's cross-examination by hia great agitation. He became much exhausted and fears were entertained that he wou d faint and thia produced a some what unfavorable impression. When asked why ho had hired en to spy for him in the Homcbtaad mill be rep.ied: "Because I got a telegram irom New York aakinur m to learn the condition of alla.rs ia the mill as they wvre trying to arrange a settlement with Andrew Carnegie." The jury found Dempsey guilty. MURDEKED IN A SWAMP. The Hodjr of A. J. Morton Found Frozen Miff in Northern Indiana. Chicago, Jan. 23. The body of A. J. Morton, twenty-five years of age, a clerk in the employ of the Philadelphia & Read ing coal company, was found in the Ful lerton marshes today frozen stiff. There was nothing of va.ue on tha body when it was found and the police believe that the young man was murdered and robbed. .Sunday, Morton, in company with Thomas Sievemon, a member of the Calu met shooting club, went out to tho marshes which are a short diatance be yond the Indiana line, for the purpose ot hunting. After tramping around in the marshes for some time the men lost their bearings and could not find their way out. In wadiug through tho swamp Morton became ex hausted and could iro no turther. Steven son carried hiui on his back for some time, until they fell ia with a party of men who told them that they were going to Miller, lud., and would take Morton with them and put biaa on a Chicago train at this point. This Whs agreed to. and Stevenson went to the he use of the Calmet shooting club, spent the night there, and came in this morn ing expecting to find that Morton had come in ahead of him. When he found that nothing had been heard of him, he at once set on foot the search which resulted in the finding of Morton's body. There were no wounds on the corpse, and it is thought that he was stunned with a club and died of exposure, or that be was kill.d outright by a blow on the head. A post-mortem examination will be held tomorrow. Irou Hall Money. Boston, Jan. 23. R. J.

"ew York, Jan. 23. Special. There hs been a great deal of gosip of every kind about every imaginable sort of pub lic man in the almost uuited effort now being made by the American people, es pecially that part of it engaged in news paper work, to assist in the making of a new cabinet. The creat ma's of this has been of the most irtesporsible character. Scarcely a public man of any kind has been able to come to the city without be ing put down at once as a candidate for a place in ihe president's cabinet. But with all this talk and writing lidle inten tion has ben given thus far to the otlice of secretary of state. About tho only man thus far talked of for this office has been Mr. Phelps of Vermont, formerly u iuifter to England. In addition to his name there has been occasionally n.entioned ex-Postu-aster-Genaral Don M. Dickinson in connection with what is generally looked upon as the leading cabinet office. AVhy Overtook Hi? yard? It Eeems strange that ia all this discus sion almost no attention has been given to the na:se of Thomas F. Bayard of Dela ware, secretary of 6tate under Mr. Cleve land's first administration. Nearly every member of the former cabinet has been mentioned for his old or new place, but Mr. Bayard's name has, for some reason, r.!met by common consent, been omitted from the lit of men deemed eligible for this important place. This id the more strange, toe. when it is known that, everythii e cons.dere 1, the relations of tho preeident-els ct and his eecrtary of state were quite as close a any two men ever associated in public p aces. Beth betöre and since each has always spoken of ths other in the warmest terms of commendation, personal as well as po litical. Mr. Cleveland has always ex pressed lbs hL'be-d confidence in Mr. liayard and no enlczy ha3 been too lo ty for hiin to pronounce upon bis ability, character and patriotism. He has been known to declare many times, both before and since his ia-st election, that if be had the power to hunt the whole world ovr be could never lind for this important post a man of higher impulses or of greater ability or character than his former secretary of state. IUglit on the Tariff. It must be remembered that the president-elect looks upon the reformation ot the abuses of our tari I eyt-tem as the most important work entrustt-d to him. In this respect, he has much admiration for Mr. Bavard's consifctent record on this im portant question, and knows thoroughly, the va uo of his advice on this and kindred questions bearing upon a success ful admimtrat.on of the government finances. In order that he may have ti ne and opportunity to do this great work he and his friends recognize the im portance of escaping from the numerous foreign complications that arise to trouble almoct every administration. Vp On Forei Affairs. One of the arguments put forward in favor of Mr. Bayard's reappointment to his old post is that the questions now in foreign ailairs are almost identical with those that came to the front during Mr. Cleveland's former ad.niniration. The fisheries trouble is no nearer settlement than it was when Mr. Buyard and Mr. Phelps negotiated a treaty with L'ngland, only to have it rejected for purely parti san reasons. The Bering sea question is not new. It baa only been newly treated in the most paltering way. There is every resson to think tiiat a return to Mr. Bay ard's thoughtful and conservative policy would result in a permanent settlement of this annoving question. An extradition treaty with Kngiand that was a great advance upon anything that proceeded it, was a negotiation of Mr. Cleveland's former admtnbtration and a result of Mr. Bayard's work and was rejected by a parti san senate for political reasons. The Chinese question seems no nsarer u settle ment than it was after the passHge of tho Scott law. A bad South American policy is to be changed quite as thoroughly as Secretary Fre.injhursen was compelled to do in " 1881. A new and sensi ble policy is to be adopted, so that permanent friendly relations shall b re-established with all South American countries instead ot the suspi cious ones now existintr. Mr. Bayard is familiar with all this, as he is also with the advantages and the drawbacks of the poli'-y of reciprocity engrafted upon the McKinley bill just before its passage. He would be prepared to enter upon ids work almost without any necessity for the de lay inseparable from the choice of a new secretary. In general. Mr. Cleveland could, by the choice of euch a man. al nioöt hope to bein where be left oil, so far as foreign aüairs are concerned. Tha Kx-Premler (Junllfied. For all these reasons, and others that need not be recapitulated ; it is not un natural that public attention should have been directed again to Mr. Bayard as an eligible man for reappointment to his old place. lie has made no movement in this direction.no more than he did iu l&v, when, without solicitation or appli cation on his own part, he was chosen for this important post. It may l said, with truth, that Mr. Bayard has perhaps seen his old chief h sa during the past four years tnan almost any oth-r one of his chosen advisors, who live within a reason able distance of' New York. Stranger things might therefore happen than a de termination on the part of the president elect to 8-lect azain as secretary of state his old-time esaociate and friend. The fact that Mr. Bayard is today at Mr. Cleveland's hou&e at Lakewood is certainly as good an indication that the president-elect is looking in that direction as many of thoee upon which other cabi net prognostications are bs d. The president elect came up fron Lake wood this morning on an early train and went at once to ids otlice iu the Mills building. The whole of his time was tatcen up by interviews, e ime of which had been postponed from laFt week, ow inz to bis absence from the city. He re turned to Lakewood earlv in the after roon in order to meet Mr. i avard and his wiie upon their arrival at the cottage. It is not probable that he will return to the city before Saturday, even if he does at all during the present week. LiKnr.-po:, X.

The ex-Ht-cretary, who came on Irom Washington by sppoirt ment, misled his connections at Philadelphia, and had to wt-.it an hour and then take a slow train he-e. Mr. Cleve land w -.i ted at the sta'ioa until the train arrived and met the ex-secretary. Tha tro then entered the private carriage that was in waiting and were h.keu to tt;e cot tage where Mr. Bayard will re main un;il Wednesd..r. It ia ex- ected that ex-Set retarv of the avy Wi bam C.

No information in regard to Mr. Bayard's vieit could be ob tained at the Cleveland cottag tonight, Mr. Clavtland sending out word that he was very buy. Mr. Cleveland will re main here until Thursday wLea he will possibly go to New Yo.-k. GORMAN AND WHITNEY CONFER Rrgartlinf; tha nturial Ontlook In Mon. Inna Leaders in Tr r.Me. Nr.n- Yokk, Jan. 23. An evening paper says: "Senator Arthur P. Gorman of Maryland, chairman of the democratic steering committee ct the set ate, bsd a conference to lay with the ll n. W. C.

Senator German is con fident that the rtemoerats wid organize the senate, even if the troubles in Mon tana are not sett.ed, but he wants a demo crat e.ectd from the state just the same. The eituaiion in Montana has been the subject of several previous conferences between the democratic leaders and it was thougnt once that tue trouble was settled, but it has broken out again since the b-cislature met.

THE KANSAS FRDICA:.!ENT. The Three Tarties on the F.t of a Ballot Without an.i hlr.t f Totek a, Jan. 23. Although the rarious branches of the Kansas legislature ballot separately tomorrow for senator, no candi dates have up to this hour 01 p. m.l baen decided upon by the three parties. The popul.fts went into cau cus at 8 o'clock. Then have to decide first whether they wid nominate a middle-of-the-road r-opulist or a demo crat, and then to select from the various candidates the nominee. There is no telling what ther may do. John Mar tin of Topeka is the only democrat toward whom the populists seem well dispoeed. Having unseated the repub licans they have a majority of all the mem bers of the pcpulist house and the senate and can tl-ct a populiet if they want to. They believe, however, a democrat with populist tendencies wid be more likely to receive recognition by the iederal cen nta in the tvent of the re publicans electing- a man and sending him to Washington with creden tials. Among the stalwart populist candi dates ereJudire Frans Dosier, John F. Willits, Dr. McLalan, editor of the .4.7 mce A'iiooi1''. To checkmate tins' move by the populists, the republicans have about decided to throw their strength to a stalwart democrat tin against John Martin, who represents th fusion wing of the democracy. The sixty four republican members of the lower' house, with the reput lican senators and the live democrat msKe a majority of both houses in joiut session and could elect a eeuator if they can decide upon a man. So many stalwart democrats, how ever, have their rodi up lor the sena torial lightning that it will be a ditliculi matter to concentrata upon one man. Bailer P. Waggener of Atchiöon, Edward Carroll of Leavenworth. A. A. Harris of Ft. Scott and J. B. Watkins of Lawrence are some of the democrats who hope to be sent to the senate by the republicans. The republicans, however, will take no definite action until they learn what course the populists intend to pursue. The republican friends of Senator Perkins are at work to prevent any election bv the republican house ia the hope that the populist hon.ee will be declared idegai and the iederai senate will decline to recognize their senator, thus al lowing Senator Perkins to return to his seat and fill out the unexpired portion of the term of the late Senator Piumb. THE STRUGGLE IN WISCONSIN. niitchell, Bragg and Knight in Good FijM. iog Trim. Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 23. Not in many years has there been such interest taken in the election of a V. S. senator for Wisconsin aa is manifested at the present time. From certain parts of the atate come reports of growing and chrystalizing sentiment in favor o the election of Gen. Bragg, and members Irom, some localities who bad civen their sup port in the caucus last week to other can didates have been sharply critl ised by their const tuents and every possible ef fort has been made to drum them into the Bragg column. In Milwaukee the democratic powers are equally act ive in the in to rest of Congressman Mitchell's candidacy, and there has been practically no end to the hustling done today in bis behalf. So great is the interest felt here and so persist ently are Mr. Mitchell' supporters work in for his interests to secure all influence possible that they secured an adjourn ment of the common council this after noon, all the democratic members of which went t Madison in a body to work in Mr. Mitchell's in:eret. Nearly every democratic politician of the city is in Madi son tonight. The first ballot tonight and the eleventh' since Wednesday was taken at 11 o'clock as follows: Mitchell, 30; Bragg, 29; Knisjrhht, 10. The second ballot was the same as the first. This was followed by four other ballots with no change and the caucun adjourned at 11:30 until 2:30 p. ta, tomorrow.
