JEWS AT OYSTER BAY President Koo-eveit, PETITION MAY NOT BE SENT State Department Inclined to Think Ilnatfa'a Heeent Activity In Matter of KfshineS Outrages Should rrecliide Farther Stepa. Oyster Bay, NT. Y., July 15. An im portant conference has been held at Sagamore Hill between the president and representative Jewish citizens of the Society of the B'uai li'rith regard ing the petition to the Russian govern ment on the Kishlneff outrages. Be sides the president, the parties to the conference were Simon S. AVolf of Washington, Oscar S. Straus and Leo N. Levi of New York. The administration has been embar rassed by the delay of the representa tives of the B'nal B'rith society in pre senting the petition. A draft of the document was handed to President Roosevelt several weeks ago by Mr. Wolf, but it was decided after some consideration to modify the text of the petition before presenting it formally to this government for transmittal to Russia. Time was desired, too, to ob tain to the petition the signatures of representative citizens of the United States of all the religious faiths. As a result the document was not placed In the bands of the president until now. The result of the conference at Saga more Hill has not been disclosed yet, but n strong Intimation is given that the petition may not be forwarded to tho Russian government. The desire of both the president and Secretary Hay Is that the Kishlneff incident should be closed ns soon as possible, as further delay in its consideration might prove embarrassing to this gov ernment In other diplomatic negotia tions with Russia. May Not Send Petition. Inasmuch as the Russian government has indicated by the adoption of severe measures a genuine disposition to pun ish adequately the perpetrators of the Kishlneff murders and In addition those who Instigated them, It is a problem for the president and Secretary Hay to solve whether representations concern ing the incident now are either desir able or necessary. It is suggested that the whole matter may be resolved Into a brief statement through diplomatic channels to the Russian foreign office that such a peti tion is in the hands of tho United States, thus leaving it to Russia to say whether it would or would not receive the document if it were presented. It would close the incident without sub jecting United States relations with Russia to a strain, and it is believed would be quite as effective as the actual presentation of the petition. Members of the Jewish committee, to getlier with Dr. Albert Shaw, editor of the Review of Reviews, and his friend from England, Maurice Sheldon Amos, were tho guests of the president a luncheon. Secretary Root hns left for Washing ton, lie said that ho could not sail for England before the 2;id of Angus because it was desirable that he should see the general staff in full operation before he left the country.

Venezuelan Prl-t and l'.mlinry H ulixeil Its l:Hiol-er. Soledad, Venezuela. July 15. The situation before Ciudad Bolivar is un changed. It was reported that tho revolutionists hud evacuated the city, but this turns out to be incorrect. General Rolando, the comma mier of the revolutionary forces, is still in pos session. A boat bearing United States and parliamentary truce flags left Ciudad Bolivar and crossed the Orinoco to La Soiina. President Castro's authorities received the emissary, a priest, who said lie came in the name of the for eign consuls, the bishops and leading trade to ask General Gomez, the gov ernment commander, to receive him, saying be had an important message for him. Learning that General Gomez was not at Soledad, the priest departed, promising to return. A correspondent Questioned him concerning his reasons for hoisting the United States flag, as he is not an American. The priest replied: "Because the flag of the United States is respected everywhere." The priest refused to reveal the ob ject of his mission; Late at night the man-of-war Boli var, with General Gomez aboard, ar rived here. She passed before Ciudad Bolivar and was fired upon, but with out effect. .The Bolivar anchored two miles above the city and placed her self in contact with the besieging gov ernment troops. The remainder of the Venezuela a fleet, composed of the men-of-war Za mora, Restaurador, Miranda and Vente tre de Mayo, are due here. When they have arrived 4,200 men will be ready to attack Ciudad Bolivar. The govern ment authorities intend to give Gen eral Rolando a chance to consider his desperate situation in order to prevent the useless shedding of blood. If he will surrender he will be given full guarantees for himself and followers. TO TEST EEAESAKGE. Battle Ship Will Steam at Wall Speed Acrom the Atlantic. Portsmouth, England, July 13.

DOUGAL PUT TODEATH. Moat House Murderer rays Penalty of His Crime. MAKES A-PULL CONFESSION Killed famine Holland and Buried Her Body In Ditch Mystery of Her appearance Long Vnnolred. Remarkable Criminal Record. London, July 15. Samuel Herbert Dougal, the perpetrator of the Moat House murder, who was convicted at the Chelmsford assizes June 23 of the killing of Miss CaniiMe Cecile Holland at Saffron-WaUb-n, Essex, and sen tenced to death, has been hanged at the Chelmsford Jail after making a full confession of his crime. The Moat House murder, as It was known, was committed over four years ago, and hope of solving the mystery had almost been given up when the body of the victim. Miss Holland, was found last April buried in the Moat house grounds. Miss Holland was the owner of Moat House. About four years ago Dougal, who was supposed to be her husband, but who, it was discovered subsequent ly, had never been married to her, made his npiea ranee there, and Miss Dougal, supposed to be his sister, took up her residence on the place. Miss Holland then disappeared suddenly. Dougal about a year ago sued the wo man supposed to be his sister, but who really was his wife, for divorce. This aroused suspicion anil led to an Inves- SAMUEL HERBERT IiOCGAL. tigation. Dougal was arrested for cash ing a check purporting to have been signed by Miss Holland, and while he was in custody the body of Miss Hol land, for which a thorough but unsuc cessful search had been made, was ac cidentally found by a laborer in an old ditch which had been planted over with shrubs nearly four years previous ly. The laborer struck hi3 fork into a hard substance, which proved to be a woman's shoe containing a woman's foot. Then Miss Holland's body was found lying face downward. An examination showed that the head had been pierced by a bullet. which was found in the skull. Two Wives Died In Strange Way, Dougal was born In Loudon in 1S10. He received a good education, but en listed in t he army when twenty. In fourteen years' service he reached the grade of quartermaster sergeant. Up to 1877 his service was all put in at Chatham, but that year ho was trans ferred to Halifax, N. S. When he landed at Halifax be had two children by a wife he married in 18(10. In 1SS5 the first Mrs. Dougal became suddenly ill and died within two months under circumstances uow considered sus picious. Dougal was married a second time to a Canadian girl, who died with in a year. Both wives were interred in the military burial place at Halifax. Soon after another woman appeared on the scene, the daughter of a Cana dian farmer, whom Dougal brought to England. She lived with him at Alder shot and London, but in consequence of ill treatment she left hiin, going back to Halifax with a child and representing herself as a widow. In 1SD2 Dougal married for the third time, in Dublin, and again, owing this time to her hus band's immoral conduct, his wife left him. Other Women In His Life. Two, if not three, mesalliances, In which the women concerned were rela tively well supplied with this world's goods, are recorded in this stage of Dougal's career. Being tried for arson was another episode of this period, Dougal having been accused of setting lire to an inn in Hertfordshire which he had induced one of his inamoratas to take and which he had insured heav ily. He was acquitted and similarly es caped paying the penalty of the law for abstracting cheeks from a check book belonging to Lord Wolseley, who was then in 18!)3 commander in chief in Ireland, and of forging that officer's name, lie was, however, convicted on anouter similar enarge ana served n year's sentence. At the beginning of his term of im pnsonmeni ne attempted; to commit suicide. He was released at the end of January, 1897, and in IXOS came to the opening of the last scene in his amaz ing career.

I: OLD MISTEEIE3 CLEAEED. Indianapolis Grave Robber Telia About T it u Murders. Indianapolis. Ind., July lo.-OfEcer. accompanied by Rufus Cantrell, chief of the recently convicted band of Indi ana grave robbers, who hud been brought here, visited the Union Chapel cemetery, near Nora, eleven miles from Indianapolis, and two graves were opened. According to statements of Cantrell the body of Miss Carrie Sel vage, an Indianapolis schoolteacher, who disappeared from the Union State hospital March 11, 1000, was to be found there. .Two men found the woman, said Can trell, wandering on a country road as they were returning from a grave rob bing expedition on the morning of her disappearance. They invited her into their buggy, found she was demented and took her to a cabin in Hamilton county, where she was kept for Weeks. She was moved later to a hut In Indi anapolis, and when the search for her became so close they chloroformed her and buried her body In the Union Chap el cemetery. Cantrell, when ho arrived at the cemetery, was uncertain as to which grave she was buried in. He said she had been placed in a grave that had been robbed several months before. Miss Selvage's brother was in the par ty. Two graves were opened, and one was found to have been disturbed, as Cantrell said It would be, with the rough box broken open and the coffin lid turned upside down. The body in It was not recognized by Mr. Selvage. Other graves will be opened. Cantrell, In his confessions, professed to know the secret of the disappearance of Kenneth Lawrence, a young man who inherited ? 400,000 in Illinois and Indiana property and who was last heard of in New York. The sheriff of Logan comity and the mayor of Bello fontaine, Lawrence's home, are here consulting with the officers. The dis closures of Cantrell are being investi gated. FIGHT BETWEEN S0LDIER3. .
