Columbus, 0., Feb. 13. Helen
Chittenden, daughter of Hsnryt H.
Chittenden, an heiress to an estate
of $1,000,000, was married secretly
last night to Edward Ziegler, son 'of
a saloon keeper, v : - j j ?
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. Mithoff, a mil
lionaire capitalist, her mother being
dead, ihe Mithofls bad tried every
means to prevent her meeting Zieg
ler. Last summer they sent her to
Europe, but this did not estrange
the pair.
They were together frequently of
late, and she repeatedly tuld hex
grandparents that she. was going to
maTry "Ziegler, but they still hoped
to dissuade her and would have tak
en steps to prevent the marriage
last night if tbey had known of it.
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.
The Mithoffs were in ignorance
of the girl's whereabouts until this
afternoon, when the couple were
found at the Goodale ApartmenJt-
Hoi:se," where they "wilTkeep house.
Miss Chittenden was formally in
troduced to society at a dinner
danc6 given for her by her grand
mother, Mrs. E. T. Mithoff, on De-r
cember 21, which was attended by
the most fashionable of the younger
set. -
Mr. Mithoff said tonight: "Poor
girl, how unfortunate. There's a
fellow, who from all -accounts, does
nothing. He's married a rich girl
and perhaps he expects her to keep
him. They say he's nearly thirty
five years old. If . he- has counted
on getting any of my property after
I'm dead he is very badly mistaken."
Something That Will Do. You Good
We know of no way in whieh we
can be of more service to our read
ers than te tell them of something
that will be of real good' to them.
For this reason we want to acquaint
them with what we consider one of
the very best remedies on the mark
et for coughs, colds, and that a-
larming complaint, croup. We re
fer to Chamberlain's Cough Reme
dy, We have used it with such
good results in our tamily so long
that it has become a household ne
cessity. By its prompt use we
haven't any doubt .but that it has
time and again prevented croup.The
testimony is given upon our own
experience, and we suggest that our
readers, especially thote who haVe
small children, always keep it in
their homes as a safeguard against
croup. Camden (S. C.) Messenger.

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

unusual wound, and Dr. E. J. Dunn,
who attended him, says his pros-
iKiug LUG
pects for recovery are exceedingly
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. The jury
in the breach-of-promise case of
Mrs Mary Hetteberg, aged forty,
against Capitalist John Boley, of
Newport, Ky., to-day returned a
verdict of $l,ooo for Mrs Hetteberg.
She had sued for $2o,ooo, alle
ging that Boley, who is eighty-one,
had trifled with her affections. Evi
dence was introduced to show that
Boley hugged and kissed her.

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
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
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.

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
New York, Feb. 19. Rear-Admiral-Count
von Baudissin return
ed here from Philadelphia this af
ternoon. He and eome of his aids
were entertained at a private din
ner and this evening they attended
the theatre. George R. 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.
Syracuse, N. Y., Feb. ll.-The
suicide of Miss Etta, AldricK i
Nadwecb, wnose funeral was neld
to-day, is explained in the letter
which she left addressed to the
man to whom she was engaged.
The letter says that she was
cused of stealing $20 from ; a
man friend, and as she could
prove that she was not the thief she
preferred to die. -Investigation
has since shown
that she was innocent of the charge
of stealing. Miss Aldrich and the
young man to whom she addressed
the note were to have been married
On the day of the suicide Miss
Aldrich tried to procure laudanum
on the plea of having toothache.
Failing to get it she banged herself
to a hook which she bad driven
into the door of her room. She

The Farthermost Parts of the Globs

arch but the Boy is Still
Missing. - " .
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. His father said r
"He left home in the morning to
go to a dentist's in Yorkers, taking
only a handful of necessary things
with him, and we. never saw him
again. 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. My wife has borne
up bravely until recently. Now
she is very ill and much aged. -
"The State Department, has aided
me in sending out circulars, with
photographs attached to 350 consuls:
and I ha ye myself written and.
sent circulars to every American
consul abroad and to the consuls of
every other country. I have written
to every newspaper editor in thia
country, Canada, Europe, India.
Africa, the Klondike, and in Hon
olulu, and other islands, The news
papers all over the world have prin
ted my appeal and sent me copies
of their papers. Each publication
has brought me letters' some of
sympathy and some in the belief
that the writers had seen my son.
"1 have examined the signature
in the clearence papers of every ves
sel, no matter how small, that cle
ared the port for a month after my
boy went away, and I have invee-l
tigated the records of the Army and
Navy Departments for his poss-.
ible enlistment. I put the matter
in the hands of the Pinkertons . and
the local police; have offered a re
ward of $5oo for news; have written
the chaplains of seamen's missions
all over the world; have written
to the police of every city in the
