ALBANY, N. V.. March 6.— Mrs.
Sarah Angell and John Angell, the
missing witnesses in the Cody case,
were on hand at the opening of court
In the Cody trial today. Mrs. Angell
is? tho woman who, it was contended,
had ' been married to Jay Gould
and was the mother of his child.
The first witness today was Mrs.
Sequin, of Rouses Point, who testified
to having written a letter to Mrs. Bee
he at the dictation of Mrs. Cody, in
which she indirectly asked for fundri
with which to prosecute her Investiga
tion as to the marriage of Jay Gould
and Mary Brown. She said in the let
ter, that while it would be very diffi
i ult to procure a marriage record the
ti her (birth record) was "now all
A second letter, identified by Mrs.
Sequin as from Mrs. Cody to Mrs. Bee
be, asked for $100 and told that Mrs.
Pierces lawyer had arrived in Albany
with a deposition from Mrs. Angell to
the effect that she was never married
to Jay Could. The marriage, the de
position set forth, was to a Frenchman
named Vidas, "who starved her." Mrs.
Cody's lelter continues:
"I think the woman is crazy. I am
going to try and get an affidavit from
her to tlie effect that she had a child
by Jay Could. Isn't it a shame that
the villain at this late day should fail
A third letter to Mrs. Beebe tells of
Mrs. Cody's anxiety to meet George
Could personally, because as she says
she "has the key of the whole situa
tion" in her hands. "If the case goes
t>) trial," she proceeds, "you and 1 will
be dead and buried, for that old fool ls
constantly changing her mind and says
she was never married to Gould."
Nicholas Dac-k had written some let
ters for Mrs. Cody in 1895, who had
asked him if he could write in more
lhar. one kind of handwriting. One of
the letters which he had written, and
which was dated Oswego, N. V., and
signed H. S. Moore, was to Miss
Helen Gould and suggested to her the
advisability of personally seeing Mrs.
Cody, who had "control "of the entire
case," and was 'in a position to put
an end to the entire scandal."
Still another letter to George Gould
told of the case against the Goulds hav
ing been placed in Mrs. Cody's hands
by Mrs. Pierce, the alleged daughter
of Jay Gould. It suggested a personal
meeting with Gould with a view to put
ling a stop to the proceedings which
Emma Lewis, of Rouse's Point, tes
tified that Mrs. Cody boarded with her
five weeks in 1895. She had written
letters for Mrs. Cody in connection
with the Gould case. Mrs. Cody had
told her that she did not believe Mrs.
Angell was ever married to Jay Gould,
and that she felt sure that Jay Gould
was not the father of Mrs. Pierce.
MRS. ANGELL APPROVED.
Mrs. Millie G, Hoyle, also of Rouse's
Point, had talked with Mrs. Cody dur
ing the fall of 1595. Witness had told
Mrs. Cody that Gould could not have
married .Sarah Ann Brown, because
that person had been at the time of
the alleged marriage a servant in her
(Mrs. Boyle's} family. . She had also

referred to was not the Mrs. Angell

taken, Mrs. Angell nodded her head
and smiled approvingly.

Brown, the one whom she now des

in 1853, when she was about sixteen
years of age, taking with her her child
by an old Frenchman named Rousseau.
The child was a boy.
William B. Hoyle. a son of the pre
ceding witness, told of having heard
a conversation between Mra. Cody and
his mother, in which the former said:

money in this case already and am

By mutual agreement the testimony
of George J. Gould, taken at the flrst
trial and which had regard to the re
ceipt of letters from Mrs. Cody upon
which tlie charge of blackmail is bas

David N. Carvalho, a handwriting
expert, made chemical tests in court
with a view to discovering what names,
if any. had been erased from the
records of the Cooperville church. The
expert said he was able to state that
the original entry had preceding the
name "Jay Gould." the initials "E. A.,"
and following it the small letter "k."
There had also been the erasure of four
small letters, one of which was an "I."
In regard to the words, "Mary Brown,"
where another erasure and change had
been presupposed, there was no indi

Judge Brown, of Wyoming, told of
having been at Mrs. Angell's house on
July 10. 1595, when Mrs. Cody came
in. The witness said he fold Mrs. Cody

Mrs. Angell then said to Mrs. Cody:

MRS. CODY PERSISTENT.
Mrs. Cody made no response but
stuck to her denial.
Mr. Yandersee opened the case for
the defense. He took up the same line
as was followed in the first trial. He
pointed out that instead of concocting
a scheme whereby to get money out of
the Goulds her first knowledge of the
fact that it was alleged that Jay Gould
had had a wife and child in 1553 was
obtained by reading an item in the
Rocky Mountain News, which men

Gould's daughter. Subsequently Mrs.
Pierce told her such details of the case
as had come to her knowledge. This
led to Mrs Cody's seeking out Mrs.
Angell. Then came the entrance into
the case of William A. Spear, and
Amas J. Parker Jr., which defense
promises to explain through the testi
mony of Mr. Speer.
It Avill be contended by the defense
that Mrs. Cody's part in the alleged at
tempt to extort money from the Goulds
had nothing of blackmail attaching
to it. First, the defense submitted
the claim against the Gould estate on
the part of Mrs. Angell, and then the
former made an agreement between

CuiiK'i'i-HN Wliu 'Were Anxious to
Honor the Country* Naval He
roes Admiral Schley Dlnpnted.
WASHINGTON. March 6.— The sen
ate committee on naval affairs today
made public Secretary Loner's second
letter in the Sampson-Schley contro
versy, this communication being in re
ply to Admiral Schley's letter. The flrst
matter which the secretary takes up is
Admiral Schley's mention of Admiral
Sampson's letter of May 20, which the
secretary says seems to have given
certain senators the impression that
the department had withheld that let
ter. On this point he says:
"First, that this letter was not in
the possession of the department on
Feb. 6, nor was its existence known to
the department at that time.
"Second, that it was in the posses
sion of Admiral Schley until the 9th
of February, when it was sent to the
department upon its request to be fur
nished with all oflicial records relat
ing to his duty as commander-in-ohlef
of the flying squadron and as a flag
officer in the North Atlantic fleet.
"Third, in its instructions with re
gard to maintaining the blockade of
Clenfuegos lt was not more explicit
than the letter of Admiral Sampson of
May 19, which accompanied the com
munication of the department of Feb.
6 and which is published in the appen
dix to the report of the bureau of nav
igation on page 464.
"Fourth, that on May 21, the day
after it was written, Admiral Sampson
sent orders to Commodore Schley in
duplicate, by the Hawk and Marble
head, which orders Avere received by
Commodore Schley during** the early
forenoon of the 23d and 24th, respec
tively, directing Commodore Schley to
proceed Avith all dispatch, but cautious
ly, to Santiago, if satisfied that the
Spanish squadron was not at Cienfue
gos. The set of these orders sent by
the Hawk Avas received on the same
day as the letter of the 20th, and, bear
ing a later date, May 21, of course re-
A'oked the instructions to blockade
Cienfuegros contained in the letters of
the 19th and 20th.
"Fifth, that, in obedience to these
instructions, the flying squadron left
Cienfuegos on the afternoon of the
24th, but did not reach the immediate
vicinity of the port of Santiago until
the morning of the 29th of May."
The secretary quotes the admiral's
reference to the department's order re
ceived by him on the 27th of May direct
ing him to positiA-ely ascertain if Cer-
A-era's fleet Avas in Santiago harbor
and not to allow him to leave Santi
ago, if found certainly to be there,
"without a decisiA'e action." gives the
admiral's reply in full and says:
STAND'S BY SAMPSON.
"It will be seen that Rear Admiral
Schley's statement to the senate does
not show that he started to return to
Key West and signaled to the squad
ron to that effect, and so informed the
department, and it might be Inferred
that he immediately obeyed that or
der and ascertained the presence of
the enemy at Santiago. On the con
trary, his telegram above, dated May
28 and written May 27, shows that,
though having just received the tele
gram of the department and haA-ing
on hand a sufficient supply of coal to
return to Key West, he reported that
he could not obey the order and con
tinued to proceed toward Key West.
However, it later became evident, to
him that this Avas unnecessary, and he
resumed the movement toward Santi
Another point in Admiral Schley's
letter is touched upon in the folloAving
"Admiral Schley's mention of the
signal by Admiral Sampson at 8:45 a.
m., July 3, 'Disregard moA'ements of
the commander-in-chief," and his men
tion of the movement of the command
er-in-chief toward Siboney, is followed
by an incorrect inference to wit., 'This
left me senior officer present, and
necessarily clothed me with the re
sponsibilities of command.' The signal
above mentioned is -one Avhich is fre
quently made in a squadron, and is
never held as in any sense a relin

station the morning of July 3. At such
times it is made to avoid confusion
which would result if other vessels
fixing their positions by reference to
the flagship were to move with her.

Annexed to the letter from the seo
retary Is one 'from Capt. Sigsbee in
reply to Admiral Schley's reference to
himself as' commander of the scout
steamer St. Paul, quoting him as au
thority for j.he; opinion that Cervera's
fleet wus iaO't fri Santiago harbor. On
this point <4apt7 Sigsbee says:
"What 1 actually said to the admiral
was that Pilot Nunez had flrst express
ed a belief 'that such large vessels as
Cervera's cruisers could not get Into
Santiago because of their length, but
he afterwards admitted that they
might get in with the aid of tugs.
Every officer on board the St. Paul
knew that I believed Cervera to be at
Santiago; nevertheless I considered

in the harbor May 29, and signaled
Admiral Schley, and adds:
"While I had not known from pre
vious observation that Cervera's fleet
was in Santiago, I believed that it was
there, because I had been so informed
by the navy department, and during
the eight days the St. Paul remained
off Santiago the different vessels touch
ing there and communicating* with me
had brought no counter reDort from
the navy department."
With reference to the statement
that he had confirmed the difficulty of
coaling off Santiago, Capt. Sigsbee
"There had been weather unfavor
able for coaling, but I remember no
statement of mine relative to coal
ing, made to the admiral excepting on
the mcrning when we jointly discover
ed the Spanish vessels. The command
ing officers were assembled on board
the Brooklyn. On that occasion I
twice informed the admiral that the
weather then prevailing was unusual
ly favorable for coaling at sea and I
recommended that advantage be taken
of it. on the ground that so good an
opportunity could not be expected oft
en. At the same time I expressed ths
belief that Guantanamo bay should
be seized as a base, not necessarily by
Admiral Schley, but as soon as troops
were available to hold the place."

The state board of prison managers

Chamber ot Commerce Reluctantly
Wishes Mr. Merriam Good Lack.
The name of the new census director, Will
lam R. Merriam, figured In a peculiar Inci
dent at a meeting of the chamber of com
merce, held* yesterday.
Mr. Espy introduced a resolution reciting
'Mr. Men-lam's nlomiaation and confirmation
as director of the census, and providing that
the congratulations of the chamber of com
meioe be sent to the gentleman named. He
moved that the resolutions be adopted under
suspension of the rules.
There were a few "yeas" and a still
stronger chorus of "nays," and, after wait
ing in same doubt a moment. President
Llghtner declared the motion lost. He then
cast around for a suitable committee to
send the resolutions to. and decided that, aa
Mr. Merriam was a local man, and his ap
pointment was of local interest, that the
committee on municipal affairs was the prop
er one to consider the matter.
Later Gen. Sanborn said he be'.ieved the
chamber should not be hasty. Mr. Merriam
had been two terms a governor of the state,
and would now be director of census for two
or three years, and it was perhaps better
that he be congratulated. Therefore the vote
by which the -original motion was lost was
reconsidered, and the chamber adopted Mr.
E. V. Smalley, who has just returned from
Washington, where he has been for several
months, was greeted by the chamber and in
vited to speak.
ERWIN LEAVES ST. PAUL
Minnesota's Famous Criminal At
torney Has Removed to St. Louis.
W. W. Erwin, who has long been
identified with St. Paul and the North
west, as one of the leading criminal
lawyers, has removed to St. Louis, and
will hereafter hail from Missouri. He
has formed an advantageous partner
ship with a prominent St. Louis Arm
of attorneys. The move is said to have
been made owing to the fact that Mr.
Erwin found that the center of his
practice was gradually drifting south.
He has been prominent in public af
fairs here for many years and will un
doubtedly be missed. For the present
Mr. and Mra. Erwin will reside at the
Southern hotel in St. Louis.

Capt. Audros Will Enlist Men ln Un
cle Sam's Service.
Capt. E. P. Andros. of the Fifth cavalry,
arrived here yesterday and reported at army
headquarters for recruiting duty to which
he has been assigned by the war department.
He came in from Milwaukee, where he has
served en mustering duty several weeks.
Capt. Androa had not decided yesterday
whether to establish his headquarters in the
city or at Fort Snelling, but he thought it
would be better to have an office in the cen
tral section of St. Paul. The men enlisted
may then be sent to the Fort and the re
jected ones will not have to go to the trouble
and expense of traveling to Snelling.
Capt. Andros wants all the men he can
get for all branches of the army service. The
age limit has been extended to 33 years so
it is likely ho may secure more recruits than
he would had the old limit of 30 years been
TAKES HIS OWN CHANCE.
Every Man Who Hides on an Ele
vator ln the City Hall.
Anybody who rides in the elevators at the
city hall takes their own risks, and in cass
of accident cannot coma back at the city
or county for damages. That fact was dis
covered yesterday, when the committee on
public grounds and buildings of the joint city
hall and court house commission, which was
instructed to secure liability insurance, began
to make inquiries.
At the meeting of the commission held last
Thursday two offers from casualty insurance
companies were received, both agreeing to in
sure the city against possible loss for $105
per annum. Mayor Kiefer thought that In
surance should be secured before the elevators
were started and the committee was empow
ered to make the necessary arrangements.
Yesterday Assemblyman Nelson, chairman
of the subcommittee, discovered that under
an old supreme court ruling any one injured
in an elevator in a public building has no
redress. Coni-equently the Insurance com
panies are cut a possible $105 and the people
will have to take large chances.
