WATERBURY, CONN. TUESDAY, JUNE 18 1901 PRICE TWO CENTS. 1 hriV irtl i r TWONEWRECROITS Pickets Induced Two Men Quit Work To-Day. to STRANGERS CLOSELY WATCHED yetj Stranger That Enter3 Certain Factories la Spotted and the Pick ets Try to Find Oat Why He Was There Conference at Manville Eros rester&ay Willing to Give Fifty four Hours for a "Week's Work The Offer Was Refused. Not even a ripple of change was ap parent in the machinists' strike to day. President Zlglatzki of the Mer chants association was asked how business la general was throughout the city, with a view to ascertaining if tbe strike had affected it at all. He said that bis own business, painting, decorating, etc. was about normal, but tixat a number of contracts had been annulled on account of the strike. Col lections, he said, were difficult to -make, but otherwise business iu gen eral is about the same as it was at this time last year. Talking with the -manager of Eeid & Hushes'.5? last week, he wa3 told by Lira that business In that concern while fair, it did not make the annual improvement that it always has made. Mr Zlglatzki was la Hartford a few days ago and ascer tained that business there was very Suit . This evening the men will be ad dressed by two very competent speak ers,, Messrs W. P. Landers and Sulll- van of nartford. Both are prominent in labor circles In that. city. Only members of the" association will be ad mitted to the halL The men won two little victories to day. For some time they have been trying to Induce one of the men who returned to work at the Farrel foundry to Quit again. The man was obdurate. He could not see where his bread and cheese came In if he held out with his fellow workmen. The other side of the picture was shown him and "after many days" the man'ytelded, he not re turning to work this morning. The E. J. Manville Machine Co is 1 one man less to-day. For the past week or so the concern has been run ning for about a dozen workers. One of the men acted as though he was ashamed of what he had done, and yet was afraid to retreat. The strikers surmised thistheir, perspicacity is really wonderful and after . a few talks convinced him he was on the wrong side. He is numbered with the x strikers to-day. . There was a small strike among same of, the. carpenters In the employ. , of Contractor Thomas Ferris yester day afternoon. The carpenters, four or five in number, are employed in making-alterations, repairs and addi tions upon the residence of William Bergin, 234 'Dublin street- -Yesterday their ranks were Increased by a new recruit from the striking machinists. The other carpenters did not take kindly; to this Idea of Justice. The machinist did not belong to the car penters union. He did not wish a ' ccab to take his position as a machin ist in the shop, why should he play scab with them? The men held a con ference and decided to quit. Later Contractor Ferris arrived and he set tled the trouble by discharging the machinist. The moment a stranger puts his foot .at tbe entrance to the office of a fac tory where the strike Is on, the pickets , never let up until they ascertain what took that man there. This was the case yesterday. A tall man, wearing a light suit and carrying a small par cel in his hands, entered the office of the Farrel foundry. Instantly the pickets were on the qui vive. On leav ing the office he told the pickets, by whom he was surrounded; that he was not a machinist, nor was he looking for work. 'As he did not look to be a drummer, nor a stockholder, the ques tion then was what was "Sis business la the office? That the men found out Jast night, about six hours after the man was seen entering the office of the foundry. Well, he was all right any way, they say. because he was not try ing to hurt the cause. This shows how acute the men are while on watch. A stranger wa3 nabbed this morning as he was on his way to the E. J. Man ville Machine Cos shop. He is a young fellow and apparently was not aware that a strike was on at "the factory named. He said he was on his way to a certain place and was taken to headquarters and sent to his destina tion later. By this means, many ma chinists are living on the fat of -the . land and having free excursions all over the country. It surely is an 111 wind that fails to blow some one good. The Manville Bros 'sent for their chop committee yesterday afternoon - and held a conference that lasted over an hour. The usual offer was made, which the men look upon as another feeler issuing from the big factories fifty-four straight hours work. Noth- ! lug. else would accompany this.' The men rejected the overture.' They claim that if the concern shuts down Baturday morning they would lose the isrhole day, and they seem to be of the epinion that It Is the "dodge" the man ufacturers have in mind to overcome the benefit of the half holiday Satur day were it accepted by the men. There Is no view yet undiscovered from .which the men have not looked upon this strike question. And that is why : they say they are confident of winning, or rather the employers will see the lestice of their requests. Chicago, June IS. The Chronicle Eays:- . "Thomas I.

This Woman Will Stand Trial for Forgery Strange Career of a Wo man Who Acted the Part of a Man, Even to Becoming Engaged to a Prominent Young Woman of Butler, 111. New York, June IS. Ellis Glenn is to be placed on trial for forgery to-day at Parkersburg, W. Va, a World dis patch announces. The case is remark able. Glenn is a woman, although for many years she was supposed to be a man, and was sentenced to the Illinois penitentiary as a man. In this Instance she had been sen tenced to an indeterminate term of from 1 to 14 years, and for forgery committed in exactly the way as was the forgery, of which she is accused at Parkersburg. Ellis Glenn declares that the forgery committed at Hillsboro, 111, in 1S99, for which she was sent to prison, was committed by her twin brother, E. B. Glenn, of whom she is the counter part; that as her brother was on his way to prison she secreted herself on the train, by agreement with him,s and that they exchanged . clothing. The brother made his escape and she wejat on to prison, where her sex was dis covered. As there was no woman's depart ment in the penitentiary at Chester, she was returned . to the sheriff at. Hillsborough.' ' The authorities surmis ed that she was E. B. Glenn, wanted at Parkersburg for f orgery. An offi cer from Parkersburg identified her as the supposed man known as E. B. Glenn, and the Illinois authorities sur rendered her to West Virginia. Ellis Glenn declares that she Avas never be fore in the region of Parkersburg and that she did not know that her broth er, Elbert Glenn, was wanted there, or she would not have undertaken to go to prison In Illinois. , E. B." Glenn, presumably this very woman, was known in half a dozen Ohio river towns, where, as a man. she did all kinds of rough work, and finally at Butler, 111, built up a good business as a sewing machine and real estate agent. She or he became en gaged to a Miss Duke, daughter of a prominent family, and even after her arrest for forgery the Dukes stood by her, the father going on her bond. She went to St Louis, ostensibly to pur chase her trousseau, and caused a report- to be sent to Butler that she had been drowned. This report aroused suspicion, and she was traced, caught and sentenced., with never a thought by anyone that she was not the man she pretended to be. CHILE LOSE CASE. Her Claim for Seizure of the Itata has . Been Dismissed. Washington, June 18. The United States and Chilean claims commission has completed its work. The last case to be decided wa that invnivino- ;Xbe seizure In 1891 of the Chilean vessel itata Dy the authorities of the United States on the grounds that she was carrying a cargo of contraband and arms to Chile. I The claim was for 44,051 with Interest and was made by the. South American Steamship com pany, which had chartered the shin rv the Chilean government. The decision of yesterday dismisses the case. Minis ter Pioda of Switzerland, president of the commission, and Mr fiiio. ,th American commissioner, agreed in this view, while Minister Vicuna of TIiHa dissented. The commission sums up it3 unaingg as iojiiows: - 1 That the damace aliped hv plaintiffs were not occasioned by any unjusunaoie action on the part of the United States: that th Itata ffna lint pursued by the naval authorities of the united States upon the high seas Into Chilean waters, induced- to surrender by display of superior force and brought back under duress. 2 That the Itata was voluntarily placed at the disposal of the United Mates by the provisional eovernment of Chile. 3 That there was Drobarjle causa fnr the detention of the Itata at San Diego oy the authorities of the United States and, therefore, no wrong was done. 4 That the claimant has brought suit in the courts of Chile" asrainst the government of Chile to recover dam ages upon the identical claim that is here set up against the United States; that the company has recovered judg ment thereon, and that these judg ments have been paid to the comnanv by the government of Chile. The case, must therefore, be dismissed. Another important case decided vpr- terday was that of the Central & South American Telegraph company against Chile, growing out of a tax of "2 cents a message levied durlncr the unrisinsr of - 1S91. The commission awarded $4.- 000 damages. ' During the sessions of the commis sion there have been seventeen cases against Chile and two against .the Unit ed States. The total of American claims asrainst Chile was $2,400,000 and of this ?28,0G2 has been awarded by the commission. The two Chilean claims against this government were the Itata case, disposed of yesterdav. and that of Eichard Trumbull, who was awarded ?3,000 for services to the United States legation in Chile in an extradiction case some years ago.

The victims were Sheriff W. L. Morris of Kansas County, Sheriff Eobert M Glover of .Gonzales county and Tony Schnabel, a wealthy ranchman. 1 "Large posses of determined men headed by the sheriffs of Travis, Hays, Bee, Falls, Bastrop, Kerr, Kendall, Star, Atascosa, Webb and a number of other counties are but hunting for the murderers.

Palma made himself popular, with the Cubans by the way he conducted the affairs of the Cuba junta In this city. The only possible opponent of Palma is General Bartholomew Masse, the vice president of the revolutionary pro visional government in Cuba.

New York. June 1.8. According to a Washington dispatch to the Journal of Commerce, the recent action of the Eussian government in raising the duty on bicycles when Imported from the United States, Is likely to be the subject of friendly representations by the department of state. The levy of the special duty seems to be part of the policy of retaliation adopted by tne Eussian government because of the de cision of the treasury department that a countervailing duty was levied under the Dlngley law upon Eussian sugar. The action taken In regard 'to the bi cycles, however, is ascribed to the fact that Eussian petroleum ,is subject to duty on entry into th United States. The right of the Eussian government to impose the maximum tariff when It Is Imposed also upon imports from cer tain other countries will probably not be disputed by the state department, but if the duty on bicycles isjaimed at the United States alone It will proper ly be the subject of representation against Its continuance.

' ' , ' ' The superior cfourt, criminal side, opened here this morning at 10 o'clock. Judge Wheeler presided, and the cus tomary prayer for the welfare of the community, the peace and order of the people, for justice and mercy to the prisoners at the bar, was offered, by the Rev Dr Rowland. Sheriff - Dun-, ham opened court. ; Seven prisoners were brought from jail. , - u The first of the accused put to plea was William Lapalme, -yriio was charged with indecent assault upon Margaret Palmer.. He pleaded guilty upon the. advice of his counsel, Judge Lowe.' : '' - " -': -f ; Joseph' Walsh and William Gillette, each 17 years of : age, charged with statutory burglary by breaking into and stealing from the factory of Bene dict &; Burnham a quantity ; of . sheet brass, , came ' next. Attorney Phelian '.was ; appointed , their counsel. . They : pleaded not guilty.' The case against these boys was told by Officer Kennaugh, who ar rested them, In the city court two weeks ago. Two other boys who were with them, at the time were charged with theft, one of them telling the whole story of the affair. They were arrested with the' alleged stolen goods in their possession- Subsequently they changed their plea. ' Michael Fanning pleaded not guilty to statutory burglary. The offense consisted of entering and taking from the barn of W. R. S. Wake on Central avenue a set of harness. - Michael Calabrese, charged with stabbing with Intent to kill his land lady, Anna Urslna, pleaded not guilty. Attorney John O'Neill was his co-Jnsel. Giovanni Varnelll of . .Union City was charged with the same offense, his neighbor, Joseph. Etruccki, being his alleged victim. A revolver was "used in this affray. ' Land and poultry was the cause of the assault. Varnelli was detained in prison for r some time. Peter Bauby finally furnished bail of $1,000, whereupon Varnelli promptly fled. After a vigorous search Sheriff. Rigney arrested him in New Mllford, and Mr Bauby surrendered him to the authorities, thus saving his bond. Sen ator Kennedy . represented Varnelli. ' Calabrese, after consultation with his counsel, changed his plea to guilty. He was sentenced to' five years in the state prison. In passing sentence the ' court remarked on the. propensity of men of the accuseds nationality to re sort to dangerous weapons on the slightest provocation,, and : the only way he saw in which to subdue this violence of temperament was to pass as severe a sentence as pqssible. Michael Fanning was sentenced to 10 months in jail. Attorney Carmody represented him. ' tTlie complaint against Lapalme was changed to ordinary assault from in decent assault The complaining wit ness is but 6 years old and her father was not desirous of giving the matter much publicity.v. ' . On this account, therefore, and In view of the accused being confined since March, a sentence .1 of nine months in jail was imposed. This concluded the business of the morning, and a recess , was taken to the afternoon. , . , : Before calling the jury this after noon the cases against the, two boys, Walsh and Gillette, were disposed of. The court said the boys made a bad start In life, which was a matter to be regretted. In this strain he spoke a while and then passed sentence. Walsh to one year in jail, and Gillette to ten months in jail. iThis disposed of all the prisoners who. had been put to plea excepting Giovanni or John Varnelli. The jury was then empaneled and .the trial of Varnelli began. Varnelli was defend ed by Senator ; Kennedy. ; An inter preter was sworn, but Senator Kenne dy objected' to the evidence being taken in this way, claiming that the witness on the stand, Estruskl. under stands and is ' able to speak the lan guage of the country. Senator Ken nedy was correct. Estruskl's story briefly was this. He kept a saloon near Union City on the Prospect road. He leased a farm to the accused. The latter 'understood, or claimed to have bought all that was on the farm also. Some days after the sale accused went to the farm and took away a buggy. This caused considerable ill feeling and hot words, complainant claiming that the accused had no right to the vehicle. Some evenings later accused again went to the farm and undertook to remove "a number of chickens. An altercatiori arose between accused and some man who was living near by. Accused went to see complainant In his saloon and there they had a very stormy half hour. ' Recriminations passed right and ; left, ' each -claiming he owned all ; the goods, etc, on the farm.; At length accused drew a re volver and shot complainant in left shoulder. - . , ' ' ' The case was not closed at press hour.

A man who gave his name as Peter Smith stopped in Exchange place this afternoon and told what appeared to be a straight story regarding his ex periences In the mining business. He carried three parcels and a stout stick, and displayed several pieces of quartz which he claimed to be worth consid erable money. In order to prove that the goods he carried was genuine he took a magnifying ; glass from shis pocket andt wanted a Democrat re porter to satisfy himself that the sam ples were the real thing. : He said he had just came i down from Baldwin street, where a well-known resident of that place had robbed him of a piece of quartz worth $1,000, and that if it was not returned before night he in tended to see the authorities about it. He declared that there are millions of dollars' worth of gold and silver ore hidden under that big hill on the Abri gador, and that if he can Induce a few men to go into the business with him he will work' it. s He spent years min ing in California and knows all about how the work is carried on. The re porter, inquired regarding" the location of the hill on the Abrigador where the gold and silver ore is hidden, and while the man did hot know it by name still he made it plain that he had refer ence to what is commonly known as Pine Hill. This is not the first time the ' statenaent has been made that there is a fortune in that hill, and for all anyone can tell it may turn out to be true. Smith appears to be a wan derer and says he takes delight in tramping about through the rural dis tricts prospecting, and that he knows of a dozen places between here and Torrington where there are just as good gold and silver mines as can. be found in any part of the world. He is a. fall, thin man, very feeble and his hands tremble so that he can scarcely hold anything in them. He is enthu siastic on the mining question, and appears to want nothing but the back ing to put him in a position to become a millionaire without going outside of the town of WiNerbury.

Edward Cavanaugh of 20 Alder street was found dead at 2 o'clock this morning by Officer Michael Sullivan In the alleyway in the rear of Thomas Kelly's block at the corner of Bank and Riverside streets. The officer was trying the rear doors In the building when he" saw the prostrate form of the man and thinking that he was under the in fluence of liquor he called Officer Mc Lean to help him remove him. When they stirred him they ; suspected that he was dead and Dr De' Liguorl, whoso office is across the way, Tas called and pronounced life extinct. The case was reported to Medical Examine Axtelle, who viewed the remains and pronounc ed death due to apoplexy. The body Iras removed to the family residence by Undertaker Bergin. Mr Cavanaugh worked for the town the 'past two weekg and when found had his pay In his pocket. For some time past he had been complaining of heart trouble and it is thought that he was stricken in the alleyway, and died instantly. Be sides his widow he leaves seven chil dren, Mrs Edward Keegan .of New York; Mrs Charles Ray f Long Island: Edward, ' a member of the United States navy; Marie, Lizzie, Michael and William; also one .brother, Nichol as Cavanaugh. He had lived in Water bury for a number of years and had worked at different times in Rown & Brothers, Randolph & Clowes, Bene dict & Burnham's and Holmes, Both & Haydens. Lately he was employed on and off by the town and city govern ments. He was a harmless, inoffensive man ana ; his sudden and unexpected death is regretted by' all who knew him. The funeral will take place to morrow morning. , s V There seems to be some doubt as t. whether Mr Cavanaugh died in the al leyway "or in the O'Connell saloon, the rear entrance to which Is but a few feet from where he was found. A Demo crat reporter called at the place to-day but. the party he saw there did not act .as' if he cared to discuss the question ajad the scribe came out no wiser than he was when he went In. Medical Ex aminer Axtelle would like to be en lightened on this matter, too, but he, finds It a rather difficult undertaking and the chances are that he will hav to give it up. The only information he has been able to ascertain on this point Js that Cavanaugh with others was in the place before closing time, but no one seems to know whether he went out with them or not, No one suspects foul play or intentional wrong doing on the part of anybody. The fact that the body -bore no marks and that all his money was in his pocket are sufficient td show that he was not the victim of any plot, but a spot from the door step of the saloon to the dead man's body showed unmistakable marks of wber something had been dragged along the ground and this leads" many to suppose that he did not die exactly where he was found. Dr Axtelle is investigating the case and will report all the facts be can gather- to the coroner. : The doctor said this afternoon that the proprietor of the saloon is endeav oring to find out the names of the par ties who were with the man In the rear of the saloon and that if he can do this he will be In a position to say mora; about it.
