DENVER , June 3. When Governor Walto made his reply to Sheriff Bowers' request Tor troops at Colorado Springs last night all hope of receiving aid from the militia was obout given up. Today's developments but strengthen the Impression that no nld will be received through the governor. Governor Walte , Lorcns , his private secretary , and 'John ' Caldcrwood , president of the Miners union , left Colorado Springs for this city at 12:30 : o'clock this morning , and arrived here nbout an hour later. Governor Wulte and Jyorens Immediately went Into conference with the governor's advisers. Caldcrwood went where none but Walte and Lorens can find him. It Is not known who tlio gov ernor's advisers were. Nothing was decided upon at the first conference , and another was hefd at 10 o'clock with a like result , so far nn any one knows. Sheriff Bowers followed Governor Walto to Denver on the next train. Today he made another appeal to the govenror for troops , but so far the demand has proved Ineffectual. Sheriff Bowers then started In scarph of Calderwood to arrest him , but failed to find lilin. Lorens refused to say anything about Caldcrwood'n whereabouts until he had had n talk with the governor. The two went to the governor , who not only refused to slate Calderwood'H whereabouts , but Instructed Lorens to say nothing. General McCook , located at Fort Logan , lias prepared himself for a call and Is In readiness , though how he can be called upon Is a mystery. MINIMtS W.tlTlMl l-'OIt AN ATTACK. ( Forces at Cripple. Treek In Hourly E tlon of u Itattle. CRIPPLE CREEK , Colo. , June 3. All day Jong the striking miners have been on the > lert , expecting that any moment some of Sheriff Bowers' deputies would put In an nppearance In some remote portion of the camp. Not n single miner Is working In the camp. One shift was put In on the Mocse , Elkton , Prince Albert , Gold Dollar , Ingham , Jack G and n few other properties , but the managers of the several mines were informed at neon that It would be Impos sible to run any of the properties. The men arc now confident that they will be attacked some time tomorrow , and th t the licur may be directly after midnight. They are ready , and this Is so well known by the deputies that the officer commanding Is iicing the utmost caution. All men not nec essary to guard the approach to Bull Hill nnd forage for supplies have been massed nbout the fortification , and their number Is ellgl.tly over 1,800. Today the strikers made their last forage for arms , ammunition and supplies. Fearing a siege they have filled hundreds of barrels with water nnd stored them In the fort. Parties have been draftIng - Ing recruits. Many of these parties were headed by women , who promise to stand firm till the end comes. The towns of Vic tor , Anaconda , Mound City and other places 'nre In the possession of squads of armed strikers. Cripple Creek , la entirely unmolested by strikers today. The plan of the strikers Is to meet the deputies and make aa strong a stand 'OB possible , und , If necessary , retreat to Bull Hill , wheio n desperate stand will be made. The deputies will bo commanded In the field byV. . K. Palmer , leader of the army that had so many scrimmages during the building of the Denver & Rio Orando road. Ho says that any moment the depu ties may ndvanco to a. point beyond Mid land , after which a battle will be only n .question of hours. The minors today hailed with delight the words of Governor Walte In response to Sheriff Bowers' demand for troops , and they .now look forward to a battle , the end of Which will bo for them either victory or ex termination , Open threats against Colorado Springs are made as a result of the treat ment of Governor Walte nnd John Calder- . \vood. The wives of the strikers refuse to leave camp. Somn of them have organized to care for the wounded and others have procured Winchesters and will enter the fight. The miners know not what to do If the militia Is called out and they believe Governor Walto will be their friend , but . while here he said to the miners : "Thu law has been violated and I shall see that It Is enforced In the future at any cost. " It la expected Deputy Marshals Wise and Drowne will soon appear tn camp to servo eunimons fin the officers of the union to ap pear at St. l < ouls In the court of appeals. .They will offer no resistance , as they fear federal authority. - II. E. Woods , president of the- Woods In vestment company , whose main office Is In Denver , but whose local office Is at Victor , elx milts from the city , was taken tn charge nt 9 o'clock by a large body ot miners nnd carried up to the fort on Bull Hill. His jwlfe was present when he was taken and Is almost frantic. The men told her that she need not worry , as they would turn Mr. ( Woods loose In the morning ; that all they wanted her husband for was to explain cer tain matters that It would be Impossible for Mm to do without Ills presence nt their stronghold. At this writing not ten business men hero know the news , but they look Into each other's faces und see nothing but 'dread and fear. The cause of the kidnap ing of Mr. Woods It Is Impossible now to give. . MINKKS ItESPECT MII.ITIA. Quietly Stand One Side anil Alton Coal Trill tin to Ho Moved. SULLIVAN. Ind. , Juno 3 , The state militia arrived In Sullivan this morning. The com panies stopped over hero and waited until the trainmen could get an engine to pull the coal out ot Shcllburn. They came In through the crowd Of miners and citizens who were there nnd surrounded the coal train. No 'demonstration wast made except by an old lady with n pistol under her npron , who marched out-rendy for action with tha1 militia. She wits caught by Sheriff Mills , * jvlio selred the gun , She was willing to do what she WHS naked to do after she had list licr gun. As soon as the trainmen could get the train In shape , which took nearly nn liour , the track wns again cleared and the coal train started out. The minors Imd each car branded "scab coal. " The minors made threats that thero.id should not ship coal utilosa they kept a standing army r.t ShcII- tiurn ull the time. After the mllltlu had finished their work they came back to Hul- llvan and went Into camp ut the fair grounds. Sheriff Mills left Khcllburn , going to Alum Cave and demanding the cu.il the miners had sidetracked. They gave It up without much dltllcully. The mllltin arc here ntvnltint ; further orders from the sheriff. STIUKEII.S HAVE WEAKENED. Uetcrtrtl bj Tliolr l-'rlritiU Cunnclbiirs Men Itvady to Gu to Work. CANNELBURG. Ind. , June 3. ItJs ap parent tonight that the backbone of the trike has been broken , Thn formidable np- pearance of the militia Is what lias done the ; work. The Washington miners deserted their colleagues at this place this afternoon , tier having gotten them Into considerable trouble , and the hearts ot the local minors are too faint to do anything but submit. This afternoon scouting parties were sent out to scour the surrounding country. The earch was fruitless , the detachment ! fulling to find any large number of men congregiied At any one spot. It appear * that the miners from Washington took a very Important part In the destruction of property on Friday night and returned to their homca , falling to support the Cannclburg men. Superintend ent McMahon of the Baltimore & Ohio .South western , at the suggestion of the adjutant general , U crowding all cars loaded with coal from Cincinnati to the Indiana state line on the west. About seventy-live car loads were moved during the day. It Is ex pected to have the line cleared by tomorrow morning ot nil coal. If this Is done there will be no more shipments for ten days. Thin dene , the adjutant general expressed the Intention of sending most of the trcops home tomorrow , retaining a sufficient force to prevent Interference with the train ? until further developments should dictate the re moval ot all the mllltln.

The state troops marched Into Clarke Station this morning. COO strong , with n Gatllng gun , to find that only about fifty miners had stayed to face the music. The mllllla was drawn up In line along the edge of the woods , nnd Sheriff Lcmlng then read the warrant against the miners for riotous con spiracy , and placed three of'the leaders , Squire Summers , Dick Gale nnd John Flynn , under arrest , bringing them to this city this afternoon nnd placing them In jail. As soon us the tloops were In line the rail road men at once repaired the track , and the loaded cars were taken on west. The thousand miners who were cnroute In Clarke Station did not materialize this morning , neither had they collected at any point along the Baltimore & Ohio South western. The certainty that the officers Intended to enforce the law seemed to quell the rebellious feeling among the men. The miners say that an soon as the troops are withdrawn they will again stop ull co.il cars , but anticipating this , two companies will bo stationed nt Clarke until all fear of trouble Is past. Every man In this city Is now quiet , and there Is a Rcncral feeling of relief among all classes. Trains loaded with coal have been passing through the city all afternoon.

President MeUrlde said today : "The Htilko might be declared off. That Is possible. The committee has that power , but It Is extremely Improbable that It will do so , 1. nm but o'ne member of It and cannot spcnk for the committee , but It Is safe to siiy It will not declare the strike oft" " CUI.VMlll.t ST/r.1. Wholesale Dlntrlct of Portland In Now En tirely Under WUUT. PORTLAND , Ore , June 3. This has been a busy day In Portland. All day long mer chants In the flooded districts have been at work moving out goods or raising them on paltforms above the water. The river con tinues to rise every hour and the situation becomes more perilous. The weather has be come cooler here , buc no reports can be had from eastern Oregon and Washington , the source of all the flood. Telegraph wires north and east arc down and It Is Impossible to obtain any news of the situation along the Columbia river. The river here Is thirty- one feet above low water and every twenty- four hours adds to It from eight to twelve Inches. Three-fourths of the wholesale dis trict Is under water from two to ten feet and the water Is fast encroaching upon the best part of the retail district. Hundreds of small houses on the flats are surrounded by water up to the second story and have begun to turn over. A further rise of a foot will take them out. Many merchants arc unable to get lumber with which to build platforms to Jcccp their goods above water. Every available boat in the city has been hired and boatmen receive from $1 to $5 per hour for their services. . . The Western Union Tele graph company's oflfce Is surrounded by six feet of water. On the west side of the river the water extends almost to Washington street on Sixth street , within one block of the Ore- goniun building , on Sixth and Alder streets. This evening the waters have reached the highest floor of Llpman & Wolf's , the largest dry goods store In the city. On the east side many ot the elevated railways leading to the river are submerged and the Madison street bridge at the south end ot the city is the only bridge open to traffic. A rise of six Inches more will shut off the gas supply of the city. The Union depot Is two feet under water .and the Union Pacific car shops In Albtna are surrounded by five feet of water. The Southern Pacific Is the only railroad running trains Into Portland 'ind they arc compelled to stop nt the south end of the city , being unable to reach either depots. The Union Pacific Is hopelessly tied up , both by rail und by boat. The Northern Pacific makes regular trips with the transfer boat Tncoma between this city and Kelso , Wash. U Is learned from persons arriving here by boat that the storm last night did much damage along the Northern P.iclfic between Kalama and Tacomn. Houses and trees were blown down and at Centralla much damage Is said to have been done. In this city a hard rain fell most of the day. The flood will Interfere with the election tomorrow , as many of the polling places are under water. No estimate of the damage by flood Is pos sible , but It will bo something appalling when the reports from the upper and Idwcr rivers are received. The Dalles , u town ot 4,000 Inhabitants , cannot bo reached by wire , but It Is known from the height of the water hero that nearly all the business portion of the town is under water. There Is a strong current In the Columbia In that point and great damage has certainly resulted. IIItlUGi ; AM ) TICACKS WASHED A WAV. PiiMenger Trains Helm ; Held on Account of the Wnilioiit. LAMAR , Colo. , June 3. Last night fifty feet of the south end of the bridge across the Arkansas river guvc way before the Hood , and an hour later twenty-five feet on the north end wan swept awny. The river covered all the bottoms und was a mile wide at the bridge. The Santu Fe tracks east and west are submerged , and at Prowers , seven miles west , teveral hundred feet of track Is washed out. All the Irrigation canals are filled by the. overflow , and some ot them have been broken In ninny places. A number * of farms along the river have been greatly damaged by the Hood , which washed out all the crups , Four passenger trains bound west are held at the depot , waiting for the track to bo made passable. The river Is slowly falling , and It U believed that the worst Is over. It Is Impossible at present to estimate the amount cf damage done. The water reached a higher point during the present flood than over before. Wunlioulit Iiy the Score. DENVER , Juno 3. J. B.

It Is not known when the Gulf will commence running trains again to Central City and Georgetown , but It may be a week or ten duys yet. O'f course , this nUlmnte Is bated on the assump tion that the creek will not again rise. " Verdict of Murder In ih Pint Decree.

The sugar sched ule will again this week be the central point around which the proceedings in the senate will revolve. Among numerous senators vho were asked for tliclr opinion as to when the debate on this schedule wi/ild cease , not one would attempt to fix a definite time. The discussion has already proceeded for four days , which was the utmost time the demo- , cratlc senators would concede before the de bate was begun would bo necessary or would be allowed to It. Some think It will be pos sible to reach a verdict Monday or Tuesday , while others assert that there are contingen cies which may postpone the disposition of Die schedule until the latter part of the- week. Among other lines of policy 'which have been discussed among the opponents of the bill Is that of allowing the schedule to be accepted as amended by the comnilllee on finance without a decisive vote In thq committee of the whole , the Idea being that the opponents of the bill shall not be forced to show their hand at this time , and espe cially that they may refrain from showing their supposed strength among democratic and populist senators. Senator Harris ad heres to his determination to ask the sen ate to prolong Its dally- sessions Into the evening , beginning with tomorrow Some of the republican senators have taken Ills notice to mean that he will ask the senate to sit Monday until the sugar schedule shall be disposed of , but conversa tions with him and olhcr senalors Indicate that his purpose Is hardly so definite , but that the intention is to press as near to the goal as II may be possible lo go. "We want , " said Senator Jones , "to see that the senate does a good day's work each day , and If It should be apparent that there Is to be no effort to secure delay for delay's sake we should not probably ask for ex tended hours , but If we should sne that the long bpeeches are to continue we should probably ask the senate to sit far Into the night. " The republicans will probably resist the attempt to extend the hesslons beyond 6 o'clock to the extent of at least demanding that a quorum shall be maintained , and some of them will decline to assist In mak ing the quorum. The democrats appreciate' this difficulty and will make an effort to have as nearly a quorum of democrats as possible on hand to meet this emergency. They have the pledges of more than fifty senators , Including most of the populists and some republicans , that they will remain to aid In making a quorum as long as may be required. Senator Harris said today that when the night sessions were once begun they would be continued until the bill should bo finally disposed of. Meantime they will maintain their efforts to get the republicans to agree to fix a day for the final vote. TO I'EitMiT rooi.ixn. Itcprcaeiitntlve PntteiMon Introduces a Hill to Allow Competing Kond.s tti 1'onl. WASHINGTON , June 3. After on Investi gation of the subject of railroad pooling. extending through all of this congress , the house committee on commerce has reported the bill of which Representative Patterson of Tennessee Is the author to radically mod ify the anti-pooling section of the Interstate commerce act. The proK | > sed system , which permits pooling under certain restrictions and under the supervision of the Interstate Commerce commission , has the support of a majority ot the commissioners as well as of prominent railroad men who know of UK provisions. An amended law on the lines laid down by Representative Patterson was favored by resolutions of the recent convention of state railroad commissioners held Jn Washington. The report from the committee has been submitted to the house by Mr. Patterson. It states that there has been shown a consensus of opinion on the part of the state commissioners and the Interstate Commerce commission to permit competing roads to enter Into contracts for a division of their gross earnings under safe guards and restrictions. While many rail roads are In the hands of receivers and others are threatened with Insolvency It Is held that It the companies were receiving the published rates approved by the Inter state Commerce commission they would bs comparatively prosperous. Iiy rebates , draw backs and other devices the large shippers are reimbursed , while the small shippers are required to pay the published rates. Thus , It U held , the railroads are Impoverished , the public Injured , destruction of small en terprises and discouragement of individual efforts brought about. A system by which competing railroads may divide their earn ings , says the report , would remove the motive for discrimination ; that largo and small shippers would fare alike. Passenger and freight rates are shown to be lower In the Unlud States than any other country ; 35 per cent below those of Great Britain , with even , greater disparity between this country and continental European nations. Stifling competition by pooling contracts Is held to be the danger to be avoided and Mr. Patterson argues that natural causes exert a powerful Influence to make rates reasonable , competition between localities , between systems of railroad not party to the contracts , and with rivers , lakes , canals and co.istwlsn currents of commerce. The report shows that the bill materially enlarges the Jurisdiction and powers of the Interstate Commerce commission. If the commission determines that a contract - results sults In discrimination or violation of the law It Is clothed with power to disapprove , whereupon the contract ceases to be lawful or enforceable and the parties nre relegated to the law as It now Is and required to ob serve It. From un order disapproving a contract an appeal lies to a United States circuit court and to the supreme court , but the practical effect ot the bill will be to place the contracts under the control of the commission with the approval ol the su preme court. While appeals are pending contracts . are unlawful and unenforceable. This bill makes shlppeis alone punishable for frauds ugulnbt the companies by means of falco bllU or otherwise , while the cor porations , Instead ot their 'officers or agents , are to be punished for Infractions of the law by means of drawbacks or otherwise made by their agents , whather authorized by the companies or net. Violations of the law am Hindu punishable by fines not exceeding $5,000 for each offense. Contracts or agree ment * between railroads or certified copies must bo flled with the commission and made publle records , to bo competent evidence In judicial proceedings. Procedure under tlio bill U materially changed. Circuit courts ara required to give CIIRCU from the com mission precedence over all others , and the supreme court lo advance tbem as It does cases In which the Government la a party. All evidence taken before the commission Is to bo filed as evidence for the court , and. If more evidence Is needed. It Is to be taken by the commission. In this way the court decides on the exact case certified , the Niivul l'orct : at Hluclluldii. WASHINGTON , June 3 , The Marblohead will probably start from New York for Hluefleds ! next Tuesday. The' Atlanta , hav ing delivered the Richmond at Philadelphia , will also start tor Uluejlelds as soon aa she can bo ready. _ Second Aulnt.int I'uitinaitcr General It WASHINGTON , Juno 3 , Mr. J.

Unless some hitch ensues In securing his extradition Granby Howard , who Is alleged to have swindled Mrs. Joseph ,11. Spccht of Gunton Hall , Va. , wife of n , wealthy ht. Louis clothing dealer , out. of $3.000 , will soon be lodged behind the bars of the Fairfax 'county Jail. The commonwealth attorney of that county has been Informed that Howard Is In Montreal , and he Is now In communication with the police authorities of that city with a view to his detention until government ofllctals can secure co-operation of the State department | n tccurlng extradition. Negotiations to that nd are now In progress , and the Fairfax authorities are confident that Howard will be brought to trial. There Is said to be a "strange story of al leged hypnotic Influence- connected with the affair. Howard Is an Englishman , about CO years of age , of good education , and when he went to St. Louis represented himself as an ex-offlcer of 'theEleventh lancers ot ' the British service. Ifc told many stories about experiences In Imlla , and started In St. Louis an order with eastern rites , styled : "The Wisdom of doit , " Into which he Initiated .Mrs. Spcchl nnd her daughter. The Spechts n few years ago purchased the historical country seat of George Mason , a contemporary of Washington's. Howard soon appeared on the scene , and It Is charged secured perfect hypnotic control oscr Mrs. Specht , who fell In with Howard's plan of establishing a college of occultism nt Gunston Hall. Mr. Specht and his sons were unable to stop Mrs. Spccht from aiding Howard's scheme financially until they forced him to flee for fear of arrest.

Probability of n Democratic Caucus to rorniuliito rt Mute IJiilik Hill. WASHINGTON , June 3. The outlook for the week In the house of representatives is so much In doubt that a democratic caucus may bo neccessary to agree on a plan of action. The stale bank question has been debated until the leaders are anxious for a vote. But the debate lias shown the stale bank men that they are liable to be de feated by inablllly 'to agree on any one of the many plans du qtissed. As the state bt-nk principle was Incorporated In the dem ocratic national pla'tform , the leaders are loth to see the bill defeated , so that a cau cus tomorrow or next'diiy may be called for the purpose of formulating a party measure which will command' united support. It Is probable that the final vdte on the bill will be taken early In the > tek , unless the whole question Is allowed to go over until the caucus committee had1 framed a satlsfaclory bill. * ' The rules commlltee has been considering the advisability of devoting one day to Rcpre- senlalivo Cooper-Is bill toribiibatltutliiK green backs and sIlveTi npesf | ' lo slate and local taxation.

There Is no sign of cessation of the Inllux ot gold to the Hank of England , the stock of bullion having reached the record of 30,000.000 , while the reserve Is nearly 28,000,000. The high prices of the best securities prevent the bank from Investing. Discounts during the week were weak at % d to Vad. Silver was dull , owing to a slackening of the demand from China. The feature of the Stock ex change was the absence of speculation and the high price of Investment securities. Ar gentines were Hat on the advance In the gold premium. Nothing has yet come of the negotiations for an Argentine loan In Lon don. The European cabinet crisis has hardly affected the market. Turkish securities ad vanced on rumors of a consolidation of the Turkish loans.

The prices made were unsatisfactory and the China demand was not quite filled. The feeling Is much Improved. A 'good business Is anticipated If the monson breaks favorably. The smaller markets were not active. The homo trade was dragging. In yarns there was a fair business , without Improvement In the workIng - Ing margins , as cotton advances rather faster than yarn. The stocks , however , were less burdensome , generally speaking. Order books are rather empty. Many of the mills are running on short time. This Is especially the case among the looms working for the home trade. Profitable business hi still scarce. Germany reports continued good or ders for yarn and cloth. French spinners are also well engaged. i : NAMES II1S I'KICi : . Inventor of the Ilullet 1'roof Coat Doesn't Want Die Eurtli. LONDON , June 3. Hcrr Dowe , the In ventor of the so-called bullet proof coat , has written to the Times offering to forfeit the purchase money to any one who buys his cuirass If It contains either Iron or steel. He declares that his Invention Is for sale at a price much under the 200,000 mentioned In the newspapers. Mr. Maxim , whoso "In vention" of a bullet proof material was tested a few days ago , has written to the papers , stating that his first letter , declaring that he could In six bourn Invent a bullet proof material superior to Herr Dowe's was merely a joke. He still claims , however , that he had produced a lighter shield , which is just as effective as DOWO'H. Mr. Maxim declares that the whole subject of bullet proof cloth ing IH a farce. His prepared steel , he nays , Is the best substance In the world for stop ping bullets. He adds ho has sufficient evi dence. , to convince him that Dowe's cuirass contains a hard plate.

ARE WORKING IN THE DARK All Efforts to Determine Maud Rubel's ' Mur derer Are in Vain. INFORMATION GATHERED YESTERDAY Purl * Hint 'Mar Poislhly Hum Some lienr * Ing mi I hit Cimo-Purty Who Thlnkt Ho Snir llriiivii mid tlio ( Url Together .Mondiiy Evening. Some new facts liavo been developed In the past twenty-four hours that may have some connection with the ttuticl murder cnse. Among them Is the statement ot Louis Flglns , n laborer at the smelting works , re siding nt 845 South Seventeenth street. Mr. Flglns said to the police that at Sixteenth und Marcy streets , directly beneath the Six teenth street viaduct. Is a one-story building , which Is used by the colored people residing In the Immediate vicinity as a dance hall. He said that last Sunday night a dance was held there by the colored people living near. The dance was prolonged till near morning , Mr. Flglns states that ho and a neighbor went over to see what was going on. They stooil at the door of the hall , where they could see everything within. The Ilrst pe culiarity that presented Itself was the fact that there was only one woman present. "She wits a white woman. " Mr. Flglim said , "or rather a wlilto girl. She did not appear to be over 10 or 17. I mentioned this p.iillcularly to my friend , and ho ro- mnrkcd : 'It does seem strange , one woman to be among so ninny men , and she white and they black.Vc did not go Into the hall nt nny time , but could FCC everything going on within from where we were standing. \Vo were not the only ones looking In from the outtlde ; there were others , but 1 do not know any of them. It was about 12 o'clock and we Marled to go home , when wo heard something fall.Ve returned , and saw the ctlured men carrying the girl to a bcnuli. She appeared to be unconscious , but tills was only for a short time. Slio asked one , who wan bonding over her. to take her home. She said she lived In South Omaha. Wo went away at the request of the colored men , UK they told lib they could and would care for the girl. "About twenty minutes after we left , ai we were sitting on our porches , about fifteen colored men passed , having In their midst the same girl wo saw at the hall. They wore urging her along , as nearly as we could make out In the dark , and partly carrying her. They went north aa far as Leaven- worth on Seventeenth. There we lost trace of them. I walked around by the hall again , but there was only one man there. He WIIH colored and was locking the door. I have seen him a number of times , but do not know his iiiine. I turned to go home and he took the fame course as the others who preceded him. " Mr. Flglns thus describes the girl : Her hair was dark brown. She was of medium height and well developed. She wore a dark dress and sailor hat. Her shoes were of tli' ' Nee pattern , but whether slippers or shoes he did nut notice. She appeared to b / enjoying hen-elf very..much till she fell to the floor. "I saw her attempt to kick above her head a couple of times , " Mr. logins said. The dances hud at the place Indicated are at tended by persona of degraded character. Mr , Figlns suys ho I8k1nclned | to .be.eyeUiut ! ( the girl lie saw was Maud Jlubel. SEEN WITH BROWN. J. W. Walker , colored , residing at 850 South Sixteenth street , ' said he and a friend called "Sndw" Jackson saw Dr. brown and Miss Itubcl at the north end of the Tenth street viaduct last Sunday evening at G. They wore talking earnestly and she ap peared to be ciying , holding her handkerchief to licr eyes almost continuously. "Wo went on our way across the viaduct , turning now and then , but Drown , or the old gentleman , and the girl disappeared. They did not cross the viaduct , neither could we see them going north on Tenth street. " Yesterday morning the police recovered a pair of new tan slippers , which It Is thought might possibly have been worn by Maud Rubel. They arc of the size that she wore and hers were also new. These were found. In the house formerly occupied by N'elllo King , Ninth street and Capitol avenue. They were given to the police by Mrs. Samuel Payne , who was the last occupant of the building on Tenth street. Slio could not suy how they came to be In the house. The shoes have not been shown to Mr. and Mrs. Rubel and they might not be able to Identify them as their daughter's even If they were hers. Mr. Beam ? , employed at the white lead works , told the police that on Sunday or Monday evenli g , about 5:30 : , he saw a man and a girl corresponding to the .description of Drown and Miss Hubel standing at the corner of Tenth and Jones streets. They appeared to lie waiting for some one. Brown's trunkfl were examined by the police yesterday , but nothing was discov ered that would throw any light on Ute case. WAS ONLY A JOKE. Tlie heads of the police department put In a hard day yesterday trying to make hcad.- way In the Rubel murder case , and at one. lima it looked as If there was a ray of light ahead , but all hopes were dashed to the ground by "a. telephone message. A , letter dated May 29 , and postmarked 330. ; p. m. , was received by a well known young man on Wednesday last. This missive wax signed "Maud Hubel , " and Implored aid from thin "friend , " and also arranged for u dattt at the * Coliseum for Wednesday night , The person who received this letter turned It over to the police after the body had been found and tlin Inquest held. This Informa tion puzzled the police greatly , for If Maud Rubel was alive Tuesday afternoon her body could not have been. It was thought , so badly decomposed by Thursday afternoon as It wau. The writing In this letter was compared with some of Muud'R letters , and while them was some resemblance , there was still u great deal of doubt. During the ex amination ot thene letters a telephone mes sage was received from the coroner' stating that a young man had confessed to the writIng - Ing of the letter to a friend of his for a Joke. He had taken his Inspiration from The UC.B stnry of the girl's disappearance Monday night and expected to have some fun at the expense of his chum. The pullro did not take kindly to that sort of jnku. At the earnest request of both the. Homier and the receiver of the letter the police have withheld their names , but here after the coroner and the police will keep a sharp lookout for such Idiotic schemes on the part of would-be smart young men. A letter from Dr. Putnam , dated Savan nah , On. , March 11 , to a friend hero , wan found and compared with the letters Miss Itiibel alleged came from her lover , The comparison showed beyond a doubt that Miss Uuhcl wrote the letters iiddrusscd to her purporting to come from I'utnam , . i .
