AGREED TO DIE TOGETHER After Seeing the Agony of Her Death From Carbolic Acid, He Shirked the Ordeal, and Lives Con fesses He Is a- Criminal. MILWAUKEE, Jan. 24. Arthur Henry Milligan, alias E. S. Terry, alias Arthur Henry Smith, alias Arthur Henry Brown, with whom Florence O. Groves agreed to -commit suicide at the Hotel Blatz, and who backed out after she had fulfilled her agreement Monday morning', was arrested in Ra cine tonight and brought back to Mil waukee. Milligan calmly detailed the story of his life and the incidents of the woman's death. He said that Flor ence Groves took carbolic acid in bis presence at the hotel, after she had made three attempts to kill herslf. Milligan was not married to Florence Groves. The couple left the Groves res idence at Chicago and eloped with the intention of marrying,, but lack of time prevented the carrying out of the plans. "Florence Groves knew what the end would be when she decided to elope with me, and she was eager to die with me," Milligan said. "She was en gaged to a school teacher, Clyde Brown, of Orland, I1L, but she loved me better. I told her that the day she married him I would kill myself or else would take my life on her birth day, January 27. Every day that we were at the hotel we planned to kill ourselves. Finally we set Monday morning as the date. "She begged and implored me not to go" first, as she did not want to see me die. She asked me to pour out the acid, and I filled a wine glass with It. At her last request, she asked me to hand it to her, but I refused repeated ly. At last she nerved herself up, snatched the glass and swallowed the dos6 at a single effort, dropped the glass on the bed beside her and lay back, gasping us she did so. "'Don't leave me.' she Impldred in a dull whisper. I seated myself at the bedside and watched her through what tjeemed to me like hours. As I watched the terrible convulsions .that she un derwent, the foam spreading on her lips, the agonized staring of the eyes and the mortal pain expressed in her every movement, my nerve failed me. 1 didn't have the courage to follow her." Terry says his right name is Milli Kan, and that he is wanted in Boston for forgery and larceny. HIS WIVES ALL DIED SUDDENLY Hoch Had Thirteen of Them, and Six Were Poisoned. CHICAGO. Jan. 24. Information of more alleged victims of the supposed Bluebeard, Johann Hoch, has been given the police by John Frlck. an employe of the Nickel Plate Railroad. Fr'ck charges that his elster. Mrs. "William Schultz. married Hoch who then called himself Albert Muschburg. at Argos, Ind., in 1900. Mrs. Schultz had a child' named Nettle then 5 years old. - . "Shortly after they arrived in Chicago, letters ceased xomlng to me," said Frlck, "and I am under the belief that my sister and her little girl were done away with. My sister had about 51500 at the time of her marriage." Mrs. J. H. Scwartzman. of Milwaukee, telegraphed the police that she would ar rive here today for the purpose of trylag to identify a photograph of Hoch as the man who married her sister in 1S99. The woman died shortly after, leaving $1800 to her husband. Relatives of six of the thir teen wives credited to Hoch have ex pressed a belief to Police Inspector Snippy that the six women died from poison. The list of the dead and missing is as follows: Mrs. Marie Welkcr Hoch. died January 11, 1&05. Mrs. Mary Steinbecker died 1S94. Mrs. Mary Becker. St. Louis, died 1902. Mrs. Mary Schultz, Argus. Ind., died 1900, and her child who disappeared. Mrs. Lena Koch, Milwaukee. Mrs. Sophia Hoch. Milwaukee. Acting on the theory that Hoch Is the missing janitor of the notorious H. H. Holmes "Cattle." the police are using the same methods to trace Hoch as were used in seeking Holmes. The officers believe Hoch to be a pupil of Holmes and that he will use the same ruses that were em ployed by Holmes to escape arrest. A furniture dealer on Milwaukee ave nue, informed tho police tonight that he had furnished Ave different flats for Hoch, .ath time under a different name, and that he had a new wife for every flat. The first Hat was furnished In May, under the name of A. Meyer; the second in June. 1S92. under the name of H. Irkick; the third in 1894 (the dealer docs not recall the name used, but it was different from that used on any other occasion): the fourth in 1894. under the name of Jacob Hoch. The wife this time was Mrs. Mary Stelnbacher. The fifth ISat was furnished in 389S under the name of Adolph Hoch. This time he gave a mortgage on the goods and then sold them. For this he was, sentenced to a iar in the county jail. The dealer told the police that he knew that the women who were installed in the first three flats died In a short stlme after marriage. He asked Hoch why he changed his name every time he married and Hoch replied that he did not believe he could get married under the same name every time, as many women would object to a man who had been so many times a widower. TUCKER IS FOUND GUILTY. Must Die in Electric Chair for Mur der of. Miss Page. CAMBRIDGE. Mass.. Jan. 24.-Charles L. Tucker, of Auburndalc. who has been on trial since January 1 for stabbing Miss Mabel Page to death in her father's home at 'Weston, on March 31. 1904. was con victed tonight of murder In the first de gree. Death in the electric chair in the state prison In Charlcstown is the pen alty. The announcement of the finding of the jury was made at 10:10 o'clock last night. Tucker collapsed utterly when the fore man read the verdict. He was led from the courtroom across the street to the jail, and when once more locked in his cell revived somewhat under stimulants administered by a physician. Mrs. Albert J. Tucker, the mother of the prisoner, was spared the anguish of lis tening to her son's fate from the Hps of the foreman. She whs led from the court room before" the jury returned. On learn ing the news she was overwhelmed. Counsel for the defense are allowed 30 days in which to file exceptions, and sen tence will not be pronounced until action upon these exceptions Is taken by the court. Before the case was given to the jury today Tucker availed himself of the op portunity to address the jurors and de clared his innocence, saying he was at home when Miss Page met her .death. He said he foolishly broke up the knife which figured so prominently In the case, be cause" officers hounded him. He said he knew nothing of the crime until reporters came to him to talk about It. The murder of Miss Mabel Page at tracted wide attention because of the mys tifying circumstances surrounding tho case. Miss Page, who was 41 years of age. was stabbed to death in her home. At first it was reported that she had kill ed herself, but the wounds failed to bear out this theory. Tucker was seen near the Page home about the time of Miss Page's death and was arrested. He ex plained his movements and was dis charged, only to be re-arrested and for mally charged with the. murder. ROBBED HIS HOSTESS. Portland Woman at St. Louis Wastes Hospitality of Diamond Thief.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.. Jan. 24. Governor James B. Frazier was today Inaugurated as chief executive of Tennessee, to serve his second term. In his Inaugural address Governor Frazier said in part: The exigencies of civil war freed, the slave, but the black man remained, and with him a problem unparalleled In Its dif ficulties. The problems of industrial re generation and of racial adjustment were laid upon the men of the South, and they were commanded to solve them In peace and. honor. But our people. In less than 40 years, with little help and sympathy from any source, have almost solved the one and if left undisturbed are hopeful of the other. Upon the supreme questions which touch our racial Integrity and supremacy let us give all manUlnd to understand that there will be neither compromise nor the shadow of turning, and that the white people of the South must and will preserve that civil ization which has made them as a race and a people strong and great. Let us with patience bide our time and If the Issue upon these questions comes, and I pray God It may not. come, then let us calmly and with dignity and firmness stand upon our con stitutional rights and demand that what ever is meted out to us shall be given In like tenor and effect to all other sections of our country.

Twenty-seven Social Democratic meetings were held here to night to hear addresses by Socialist mem bers of the Reichstag on the subject of the coal miners' strike.

The trustees of the Peabody Education Fund today voted to dissolve their trust and appro priate 31.000,000 for the George Peabody School for Teachers at Nashville, Tenn.

Dr. Daniel C Gllman. of Baltimore. After the close of the meeting the following statement was given out: "By a two-thirds vote. It was resolved that the time had come to close the trust. Thereupon a million dollars were ap propriated to the George" Peabody College for Teachers, in Nashville, on certain conditions, which includes contributions from the State of Tennessee. Davidson County, and the City of Nashville." The trustees declined to state which two trustees voted against the closing .of the corporate trust. President Roose velt voted affirmatively on both proposi tions. The trust was created by Mr. Peabody In 1S67. and amounted to 33,000.000. but al most $300,000 of this was In bonds issued by the States of Florida and Mississippi, and subsequently repudiated. The fund today, therefore. Is approximately &200, 000. The trustees were given power to distribute this fund at the expiration of 20 years, which period ended In 1837, and since then a number of questions have arisen as to the distribution. The State of Tennesse, Davidson County and Nashville recently offered a bonus of 31.000.000. provided the Peabody trustees would appropriate a round million dollars for the Peabody College for Teachers. The details of this appropriation will now be worked out by the committee. This appropriation leaves a fund ap proximately of 31.200,000. which will be distributed later among other educational institutions. THE DATS DEATH S0EL. ' Ex-Congressman Einstein.

You can interest any man over fifty years of age In anything that will make him feel better, because while he may not as yet have any positive organic dis ease, he no longer feels the buoyancy and vigor of twenty-five, nor the freedom from aches and pains he enjoyed In earlier years, and he very naturally examines with Interest atiy proposition looking to the improvement and preservation of his health. ' He will notice, among other things, that the stomach of fifty Is a very different one from the stomach he possessed at twenty five. That greatest care must be exercised as to what is eaten and how much of It, and even with the best of care, there will be increasing digestive weakness with ad vancing years. A proposition to perfect or Improve the digestion and asslmulation of food Is one which interests not only every man of fifty, but every man, woman and child of any age, because the whole, secret of good health, good blood, strong nerves, Is to have a stomach which will promptly and thoroughly digest wholesome food, be cause blood, nerves, brain tissue and every other constituent of the body Is en tirely the product of digestion, and no medicine or "health" food can possibly create pure blood or restore shaky nerves, when a weak stomach Is replenishing the dally wear and tear of the body from a mass of fermenting half-digested food. No, the stomach itself wants help, and in no round-about way, either; It wants direct, unmistakable assistance, such as is given by one or two Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal. These tablets cure stomach trouble be cause their use gives the stomach a chance to rest and recuperate: one of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contains di gestive elements sufficient to digest 3000 grains of ordinary food, such as bread, meat, eggs, etc The plan of dieting is simply another name for starvation, and the use of pre pared foods and new-fangled breakfast foods simply makes matters worse, as any dyspeptic who has tried them knows. As Dr. Bennett says, the only reason I can Imagine why Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets are not universally used by everybody who Is troubled In any way with poor di gestion 13 because many people seem to think that because a medicine Is adver tised or is sold in drug stores, or is pro tected by a trademark, must be a hum bug, whereas, as a matter of truth, any druggist who Is observant knows that Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have cured more people of Indigestion, heartburn, heart trouble, nervous prostration and run-down condition generally than all the patent medicines and doctors' prescrip tions for stomach trouble combined.
