Young Ziegler is employed as a bill poster and, usher for a local theatre. The bride's family was bitterly opposed to the match. Miss Chittenden lived with her grandfather, E. T.

On pretense of going to a neighbor's she flipped out of the house, met Zeigler by arrangement and in a few minutes they were in the Cath olic Cathredral, one block from the Mithoff mansion, where Father Me- arra, under special dispensation, Miss Chittenden being a non-Cath olic, made them man and wife.

Camden (S. C.) Messenger. or sale Dy uranam oc wens. Kansas City, Feb. 45. Humane officer Greenman is investigating a case of destitution at 2330 Grand avenue which was reported to him this morning by City Health Officer Robinson. The health officer was notified yesterday that scarlet fever existed there and an inspector was sent to placard the premises. - He learned that a little girl, a daughter of the occupant, whose name is O' Connell, was ill with the disease: that O'Connell, who is 68 years old, is unable to work, and that he is in destitute circumstances. He also learned that O'Connell is the father of twenty-eight children, several of whom are living at .the iome. . ' Kansas City, Feb. ' 15. Thomas Hobbs, who lives at 1698 Kansas avenue, was the victim of a most remarkable accident Wednesday night, in a coasting collision which occurred on Benton boulevard he had his scalp half torn from his head, leaving his skull exposed and hnr-Hf ia orill littinn'iliMini'ti, II,. unusual wound, and Dr. E. J. Dunn, who attended him, says his pros- iKiug LUG pects for recovery are exceedingly good, Young Hobbs is 22 yearsc old. With a party of friends he was coasting with a bobsled on Benton boulevard near sixteenth street. Young Hobbs was steering, but lost control and the sled dashed into an iron gas lamp post. When Hobbs was pulled out ' from under the wreckage, it was found - that the right half of his skull lay bare, the scalp being folded back on the other side of his head . He was carried to his home not far distant and Dr. Dunn was summoned to care for him. The skull washed clean, the scalp was folded back in its place and the rent carefully sewed up. It was found that the cut was over nine inches loner, extending half way around the head,, - It was the . most remarkable wound I was ever called upon to at tend and dress," said Dr. Dunn rhis morning. "The young man was as completely scalped as was ever a victim of a massacre, except that the scalp was folded back and not entirely removed from the head." - Washington, Feb. 19. The attorney-general is going to file a bill against J. Pieryont Morgan, James J. Hill and the other stock holders of the Northern Securities Company to prevent the consuro- matton of the merger of the Great Northern and .Northern Pacific Rail ways. -' - - There id no doubt in the attorney general's mind that the Sherman anti-trust act of 1890, is entirely adequate to meet the situation, and he has no doubt whatever of the re sult. The fact is that in every case at all similar to this, the supreme court has, without exception found against the railroad companies. Seattle, Feb. 18. The great Tread well mines on Douglass Island, were assailed by fire on Tuesday, February 11. and a terrible holo caust was prevented bv, the .Almost sxrperhuman aUempts, of every body who could reach the scene to Slay tie progress of the flames. The steamer Dirigo, reaching port this morning, brought particulars of the fire. The AlaBka-Mexican com crea tor buildiDg was entirely destroyed. Thirty-eight thousand dollars on the stamps, mill plates, and a.120 stamp, with the engine room, were saved. It took the concentrated ef forts of eight two-inch streams of water to master the flames and for hours the agonized people worked under fearful suspense; for more than 100 miners were in the lower workings and in imminent danger of meeting a horrible death. The origin of the fire was not known at last reports. ; The first known or the conflagra tion was when H. G. Hall, superin tendent of the Mexican compressor, discovered flames originating from, one corner of the huge structure. For some unaccountable reason the flames gained frightful headway, and before even the hoe in the compressor room could be brought into service the entire interior of the building was a seething mass of flames. From the compressor the fire spread to the hoist aud tramway and before warning could be sent to the men down in the mines, the shafthouse was on fire and the lower end of the 120-stamp mill was burning fiercely. : Cincinnatti, Feb.'12.

Decides, in the Schley: Appeal That Neither- Sampson nor' Schley Was in Command Says , the Loop Was Wrong . . rf ; Move Other News.: Washington, Feb. 19. The Pres- ident todav made the following statement public: ' -.White House, Feb.. 18, 1902. I haure received the appeal of Admir- al, Schley, .and . the answer thereto from the navy department. I have examined both, with the utmost care as well as the preceding appeal to the secretary of the navy. I have read through all the testimony tak en before the court and the state ments of the counsel for Admiral Sampson and Admiral Schley. . It appears that the court cf in quiry was unanimous in its findings of. fact and unanimous in its ex pressions of opinion on most of its fiadingB of fact. No appeal is made to roe from the verdict of the court on these points wliejre it was unani mous. I have, noweyer, gone care fully over the evidence on these points also. I am satisfied that on the whole the court did substantial justice. It should have specifically condemned the failure to enforce an efficient night blockade at Santiago while Admiral Schley was in com mand. On the other hand, I feel that there is a reasonable 'doubt whether he did not move his squad ron with sufficient expedition from port to port. : " ' ; ; The court is united in condemn ing Admiral Schley's action on the part where it seems to me he most gravely erred his "retrograde ajoyei Block; ade and his disobedience of orders and mistatement cf facts in relation thereto. It should be re membered, however, that the ma jority of these actions which the court censured occurred five weeks or more before the fight itself, and it certainly seems that if Admiral Schley's actions were censurable he should not have been left as second in command under Admiral Samp son. His offenses were in effect con doned when he was not called to account for them. - In short the question as to which one of the two men, Admiral Samp son or Admiral Schley, was at the time in command, is of merely nominal character. Technically, Sampson commanded the fleet, and Schley as usual, the western divi sion. The actual fact, the import ant fact, is that after the battle was planned not a helm was shifted, not a gun was fired, not a pound of st6am was put on the engine room aboard any ship actively engaged in obedience to the order of either Sampson or Schlev, save on their own two vessels, ft was a captain's fight. Therefore the credit to which of of the two - is entitled rests on matters apart from the claim of nominal command ov er the squadron;- for, so far as the actual fight was concerned, neither one nor the other in fact exercised any command. Sampson was hard ly more than technically in the ffght. His real claim for credit rests upon his work as commander-in-chief. : " "' ' Admiral Schley is rightly entitled, as is Captain Cook, to the credit of what the Brooklyn did in the fight. On the whole, she did well; but I agree with the unanimous finding of the three admirals who composed the court of inquiry as to the -"loop." It seriously marred the Brooklyn's otherwise excel! ant record, being in fact the one grave mistake made by any American ship that day. Had the Brooklyn turned to the west ward, that is, in the same direction the Spanish ships were going, in stead of in the contrary direction she would undoubtedly have been in more "dangerous proximity" to them. But it would have been more dangerous for them, as well as for her. This kind of thing must not be too nicely weighed by those whose trade it is to dare greatly for the honor -of the flag. Moreover, the danger was ' certainly not as .great as that which, in the self same moment, marked Wain wnght'e fragile craft as he drove forward against the foe." It was not, in my judgment, as great as the danger to which the lexas was exposed by the turn as actually made. It cer tainly caused both the Brooklyn aneb the Texas materially "to lose position compared to the fleeing Spanish vessels. But after the loop had been taken, Admiral Schley handled the Brooklyn manfully and weil. She and the Oregon were thenceforth the rearmost of the A merican vessels, though the Iowa certainly, and seemingly the. Texas, did as much in hammering to a standstill the Viscaya, Oquendo, and the Teresa; while the Indiana did all her eastward 3 position and crippled machinery permitted. Id the chase of the Colon the Brooklyn and the Oregon share the credit be- ! tween them. . ; e. j THEODORE ROOSEVELT ' ... .;. Washington," Feb. 19. As antic ipated, the decision of the President is against Rear-Admiral Schley on most of the important points. It is believed that this result will cause renewed efforts iu both house and senate to secure an investigation of the battle in order to set Schley right. , Ihose who have seen the de ciaion think that the president has taken an important step in one par ticular, which is in definitely decid ing that it was a captain's battle, and that neither Sampson nor Schley deserve any especial credit for tne part tbey took. The deci sion of the president ia not as se vere against Schley as the navy de partment would like to have had, and it is also objectionable to the department and the partisans of Sampson in showing that any rep rehensible conduct which Sampson alleged Schley guilty of prior to bat tle was condoned by keeping him in command of the full squadron and leaving him as senior officer on the day of the battle, Scley's friends feel that in in dorsing McKinley's position to promote him, he is again vindicat ed, to that extent, and is not subject to the aspersions which the naval ring h asJBUgg, aqfoeuj n m a king against him. While an attempt at investigation will be made, it is un derstood that tne leaders of the ma' jority in both houses will prevenVJ any action being taken looking to an investigation, and may be sup ported by practically all the repub licans.

Bid well, collector of the Port, today received orders from Washington which say that no person, excepting the recep tion committee, shall be permitted to board the Kronpricz Wilhelm when She enters port, and that none shall be admitted beyond the bag gage inspection enclosure at the pier when the steamer arrives there. This is r- in furtherance of the government's plan to throw a round the person of Prince. Henry all the safeguards possible. These new orders have forced Collector Bidwell to recall a large number of passes which permitted the holder to go on the revenue Cutter to the Kronprinz Wilhelm. . No one will be allowed to witness the arrival of the prince at the pier except mem bers of the reception committee, and it is also provided that persons who have friends aboard the lirer and these last designated will be kept in the baggage section.

New, York. Feb.14. Paul S Bol ger is making a record-breaking hunt for his son Walter F., who ha3 been missing since Nov. 19. No search, even for a much-wanted criminal, has, it is believed, covered so wide a territory or Dursued so many lines of investigation- The futhermost points of the earth have been reached and heard from, and the correspondence growing out of the fathers efforts has grown beyond the power of one person to answer. Mr Bolger has written many , thou sands of letters, and has received several for nearly every one he has sent out. There is not yet the sligh test trace ef his boy. r Mr Bolger is a wealthy contractor who lives at Yorkers. The rela tions in the family are almost ideal. The missing boy bad $300 in the bank which he drew four days before his dissappearence.

He bade us all good-by most affectionately, but that was always his way. - ' "I have given myself up to th9 task of finding him, and when I am not working here in his behalf -I am working at home, at nights -and on Sundays.
