SCENE IN THE REICHSTAG.
Socialist Members Kefnse to Give Cheers
for the Kniteror.
BEliLIX, Dec. 7. A disturbance occurred
in the new rcichstag palace upon the oc
casion of the first sitting of the rcichstag.
After President von Levetzow had made a
reminiscent speech, ho called for cheers
for the emperor. The cheers were given
heartily by nil except the Socialists, who
remained seated in spite of the excited,
angry protests of the other members. A
great uproar followed.
President Von Lsvetzow, on assuming
the presidency of the reichstag after re
election amid warm applause of the house,
crnsured the action of tlie socialists in re
maining seated when he called for cheers
for the emperor. Such conduct, he said,
was not in consonance with the traditions
of Germans or tho usages of the house.
Herr Singer at tempted to justify the atti
tude of the soeinlists and made a bitter
personal attack upon the emperor which
provoked a storm of indignuut prot-st
from other purts of the house. Herr Von
Levetzow thereupon called Herr Singer to

Case Revived by His Capture.
Misskapolis, Dec. 7. Harry T. Hay
ward, the young business man whose re
lations with Catherine Ging have been
Investigated from every conceivable stand
point since Monday night, was last even
ing arrested on a charge of murder in the
first degree. His brother, A. A. Hayward,
Is also in the company of two detectives
and it is intimated that ho will be form
ally taken into custody. These steps have
been taken with great deliberation and
after sifting all of the evidence to the ut
termost which can be brought into the
theory of th case, which is of course
chiefly liased on conspiracy to obtain the
insurance money. This motive, purpose
and objit, it is charged, have been pres
ent unmistakably from the first so far as
Harry Hayward was concerned.
Adry Contradicted Himself.
Adry A: Hayward is brought into the
case Iiecausc of a number of circumstances
most prominenj of which is his alleged
knowledge of the making of the loans, or
the forms gone through with if none was
actually made in the Hayward office. Con
cerning this Adry A. is said to have mado
conflicting statements, when bis state
ments as prinu-d are compared with his
statements under examination after tho
arrest. At the same time the officers state
that the suggestion of the money not hav
ing been genuine may be found worth con
sideration, and that this scheme of dup
ing the woman would be in lino with tho
theory that there was a confederate.
Caution That Caused Suspicion.
A suggestion in the conspiracy theory
relates to tho pains taken by Hayward to
authenticate the making of tho last loan.
Two witnesses were called to witness the
last, whereas previous transactions in
volving half as great a sum wore made
without the least appearance of precau
tion. The insurance must be made act
uully incontestable, and just what was
done was necessary to mako it so. Con
firmation of this theory is assorted in the
circumstance of drawing the policies, they
having been closely inspected and actually
sent east for tho correct ion of some trifling
inaccuracy. These facts are held to have
been inconsistent with the easy-going,
rambling way in which Harry Hayward
had l)een dealing with the woman.
Other I-'m-ts Tlaat Incriminate.
What has led to the thcoret ieal connect ion
of Adry A. with tho alleged conspiracy
more than all the rest is said to have been
information furnished the officials of cer
tain peculiar facts noted by his nearest
friends. Among these was his knowledge.
technical and intimate, of tho very spot
where tho body was found. He was said
to have traced the very route that must

REMARKABLE CRIME RECALLED.
Capture of J. H. Hillnian for an Insurance
Tccson, Ariz., Dec. 7. Among the
Huachucas mountains at Salvation Army
camp, atxiut forty miles from Tucson, a
man has been arrested for whom the.
authorities have been looking for years.
He is John W. Hillmnn, and the capture
was made by Sam W. Finley, a deputy
collector of customs at Nogales, and Orren
Grenimill, nnder-sherifl of La Junta.
His capture recalls one of the most re
markable cases . in the annals'of crime.
In 1879 Hillmnn and two companions, one
of them resembling him very closely, took
a trip in the Buffalo mountains of Texas
to hunt. They were gone several weeks,
and when Hillmnn and one companion
returned the man hearing so striking a
resemblance to him failed to accompany
It seems that Hillnian, who carried an
insurance on bis life of $.SO,00O, while in
the mountains conceived a murderous
scheme, and killed in cold blood the man
who so closely resembled him, and re
turned to the settlement. He took tho
name of the man whom ho had murdered,
and said that Hillmnn had been accident
ally shot dead anu buried in tlie moun
tains. In due time Mrs. Hillmnn mado
claim to the life Insurance companies in
which her husliand had been insured for
$O,O0O. The insurance people became sus
picious and licgan an investigation. The
remains of the man whom Hillnian had
murdered were exhumed, and it was theu
discovered that they were not the remains
Mrs. Hillmnn instituted legal proceed
ings in Topcka, Has., her home, to recover
the amount of insurance. The case was
carried from one court to another until
finally she secured judgment for the prin
cipal, interest and attorney's fees in the
supreme court of the United States. Ac
cording to the order of the court the judg
ment must be satisfied at the end of this
year. During all this time the insurance
companies have kcfit detectives on the trail
of Hillnian, who disappeared shortly after
his wife made claim for the insurance. He
was followed to Australia and other for
eign count-lies and a reward of $15,000 was
offered for his apprehension, dead or
On tho 4th of last month Under Sheriff
Gemmill arrived in this territory from
Colorado and interested Finley in the
case. Gemmill having learned that Hill
man was in Sonora he and Finley took
the murderer's trail at Mogdalena, Sono
ro, and ftdlowed him to Altara, Sonoru,
thence to Prescott, Ari., Mexico City, Old
Glory camp, and then to Salvation Army
camp in the Huachucas. where he was ar
rested. Hill man denied that he was the
right man when told by the officers what
they wanted hiin for. He was taken to
Tombstone, where be is held pending the
arrival of extradition papers from Kausas.

NEGRO APPEAL TO BURNS.

Philadelphia, Dec. 7. The Christian
Record, organ of tho A. M. K. church, has

agitator, to use his influence to have tho
word white stricken from the constitu

Burns to take some nucus for his country
men about tho "K.OOa.ftW workmen In this
country who suffer the greatest injustice
at the hands of organized labor in the
United States. In tho name of these col
ored workmen we urge you to report upon
the conditions which exist in this country,
and to recommend that there be no co-operation
on the part of British trades un
ions until the American trades unions
shall give all workmen in this broad land
equality of opportunity.
"The people for whom we speak. Sir. are
not foreigners. They are not the Pol
and Hungarians and Italians whose con-"
dition has already provoked your com
passionate and fraternal interest. They
are among the first comers. They arrived
with the other first families of Virginia,
early in the seventeenth century. Their
great and only crime consists in having
been born black. In your home in Kng
land, you have doubtless read the horrible
stories of midnight lynching In the
south; the crime to which we invite your
attention is organised throughout this
broad land, perpetrated in open daylight
and is ten fold more horrible."
