CHICAGO. May 13. (Special.) If ihc
istory told by Mrs. Charlottlc P. Norxis.
of this city, is true, the mystery that has
so long surrounded the identity of the
'veiled murderess," Tvho died in " fcrtstm
at Matteavran, T., Sunday, has been
Eolved and the veil has been lifted- Mrs.
Morris iys that the name of the woman
tvho has been a puzzle to the .authorities

n&s Charlotte "Ward, daughter of a
wealthy and well-known ' family. Mrs.
2sorris asserts that. Mi's's '"Ward' was a
classmate of hers' at the famous Emma
"Wlllard School, of Troy. . X.. T.. 60 years
ago. In telling her story. Mrs. Norris
"There is jio question about the identity
of the veiled murderess. She was my
classmate for years at the Emma. Wlllard
School and she spent the whole of one
vacation as my guest at my home In
Utlca. X. Y. I saw her 1n Sing Sing1 and
she recognized mc Instantly and called
me by my first name, which, like her
own. is Charlotte. TVe talked over our
school days and over her visit to me. She

did not forbid it.
Ran Away From Husband.
"Charlotte "Ward was a beauty and a
woman of the highest accomplishments.
She was a hard student and a remarkable
linguist. She knew half a dozen lan
guages well. Charlotte had three sisters,
all of whom at one time or another were
pupils at Miss WHIard's. One of the
cider sisters, who had left the Troy school
before Charlotte entered, had been en
gaged to a, New York politician. Yes. I
know his name, but I won't give It. He
afterward was the caus? of the wrecking
of Charlotte's life.
"She met this man and he transferred
his affections from the elder sister. Char
lotte told me that her father was de
termined to make her marry an English
army officer. She said if he carried out
his determination she would run away
from her husband at the first oppor
tunity. Then she married .an English
man of rank. Sir William F. Elliott, but
she ran away from his home In England
two years after the marriage. She came
back to America to find the house of her
father, a wealthy Canadian merchant,
shut against her.
Back to Her Old Lover.
"She then went to Troy, hoping to find
employment as a teacher at the, Wlllard
School. Before she made application her
old lover had sought her out. and the
rest of this .part of the story Is not .hard
to guess. '
"This man .deserted her, and appar
ently she sank lower and lower. I be
lieve the .seeds of insanity, which af
terwards developed may have been sown
then In the Summer of ,1871 I went with
my brother-in-law and with the clergy

The prison records at Sing Sing and
at Matteawan show that the one visitor
with whom the prisoner acknowledged
acquaintance was the church woman.
NEWSKI SHIPYARD STRIKE
Guards Hurried Out to Suppress Red
ST. PETERSBURG. May lo.-(3:23 P. M.)
There was a serious disturbance this
afternoon at the Xewskl shipyard, in the
Schlusselbcrg Causeway, on the left bank
of the Xeva above SU Petersburg. The
Chevalier Guards have just left their bar
racks on Horse Guard boulevard, at a
gallop. The Associated Press is Informed
by telephone that the men at the ship
yard walked out In a body, carrying red
flags and singing revolutionary songs.
When a representative of the Associated
Press arrived at the scene of the disturb
ance, pickets were posted about the works
but all was quiet- The presence of the
Chevalier Guards was unnecessary, and
they returned to their barracks, a detach
ment of Cossacks having "broken up the
demonstration and dispersed the workmen

SOCIALISTS ARE DISCREDITED
Workmen Refuse to Follow and 3Iod-
cratcs Will Effect Reforms.
ST. PETERSBURG. May 15. The only
place whence acute disorder was reported
yesterday was Kishlncf. and that was in
no sense attributable to the revolutionists.
Apparently a crowd of soldiers oft duty
got out of hand, pillaged shop's and even
government buildings, and created a Telgn
of terror among the inhabitants until sur
rounded and arrested by their comrades.
It is now evident that while Social
Democrats and Social "Revolutionists
made a lot of noise, they had neither
organization nor real leadership behind
them. Even the Terrorists held aloof
while waiting for bigger game. These
two parties, which have already forfeit
ed sympathy of the major portion of the
Liberals, now stand discredited by
their failure with the working classes
generally. The attempt to retrieve their
lost prestige in St. Petersburg by pro
claiming a general strike for today also
has broken down, the workmen refusing
to follow their leadership. A period of
calm is now to supervene. In which the
Intelligent elements of reform which are
not in sympathy with violence will devote
themselves, as they are doing, to discuss
and elaborate Ideas of the form which
th promised popular representation
should take to meet their views.
Everything now depends on Vice-Ad
mlral Rojestvensky. but cool observers
are more and more convinced that the
reforms of the Russian state. like all
their predecessors, will come from above
and not from below. The people are not
ripe for physical revolution. In the mean
time reforms in alL directions are being
worked out. although the Liberals are
too" impatient to apprcplate properly the
preit changes which are gradually being
effected. - The repeal of the law prohib

Controller Grout has for the lost three
days had his office busy preparing a com
plete tabulation of all the taxes due the
city under the franchise tax law, together
with Interest since the law went Into ef
fect In 1900. This is the first tabulation
made for three years, and the totals stag
gered the city officials, rar surpassing the
expectations even of Controller Grout.
For Manhattan alone tlie amount due Is
517.SW.700. "which includes 32.SS0.200 inter
est on the unpaid taxes. From all the
boroughs the total amount due for taxes
alone, without any calculation for interest
or penalties. Is 1.762. To this sum
there Is to be added about $300,000 inter
est, and at least another million for pen
alties, which will drive the total to J27,
000,000. These figures bring the amounts
due to June 1 next.
As soon as the decision is received the
Controller will take steps to collect the
money, if it be favorable to the city. The
money will then be. devoted to redemption
of revenue bonds.

days his mind had been a blank, and that
he remembered nothing of that period.

Roosevelt Has Traveled More Miles
Than Any of His Predecessors.
Xo'w York Sun.
The Presidents have been accustomed
to spend more or less of their time away
from Washington, although once In the
history of the country the lower House of
Congress took upon Itself to criticise the
Chief Executive lor his absence from
'Washington. The criticism consisted In
asking the President what executive acts
were performed by chief executives while
they were away from ' Che capital.
The House that asked the question was
Democratic The President of whom the
inquiry was made was Grant. The act
grew out of partisan feeling. It was
considered good politics by the opposition
at the time.
As a. matter of record, presidential va
cations began in the administration of
Washington. Investigation shows that
the Father of his Country In the eight
years of his office took 1S1 days to him
The country at that time did not offer
the same Inducements In the way of
travel as now. It Is not mentioned any
where, so far as investigation has ex
tended, that Washington suggested any
deduction from his pay for the time he
was on his Jaunts.
Adams the first beat the traveling
record of his predecessor. While he was
In office only one term, he was away
from the seat of Government altogether
one year and twenty days, or more than
one-fourth of the time for which he was
Jefferson was a good deal of an ab
sentee. Unless the figures In his case
are wrong, he was away from the capital
796 times In the eight years of his Ad
ministration. Monroe, in whose term there was a sur
plus of good feeling in the country, wa&
away in the eight years he served nearly
one-third of the time.
Jackson served two tc.rms and took
more than a year and a half out of his
While all the Presidents have taken
vacations, those who served In the good
old times, when, according to some, the
Government was nearer the people than
in more recent years, did a good deal
more knocking about than the Presidents
since the Civil War.
Lincoln, by reason of the war, was
forced to remain in and about the capital
more closely than any other President.
After Lincoln's death Johnson made his
famous swing around the circle, for
which he was censured by the country"
generally, as his travels were unmistak
ably for political purposes.
Grant made several trips while he was
President. Hayes made few. Arthur was
the first President to go into the Far
West. During part of his visit he. like
Roosevelt, disappeared for a few days
from the correspondents when he went
Into the depths of Yellowstone Park.
In Cleveland's first Administration he
went fishing to one of the Inland lakes
of Wisconsin. In his second Administra
tion he made several brief trips, and
hunted ducks frequently.
Harrison, who came between the two
Administrations of Cleveland, made a
swing through the South, and later made
a rapid journey through Illinois, Iowa,
Kansas and Missouri. During that trip
he addressed the Grand Army of the Re
public of Illinois, laid the corner stone
of a college building at Galcsburg, dedi
cated a corn palace in Icwa. attended a
Grand Army of the Republic review at
Topeka. Kan., spoke In Kansas City the
same night and visited St. Louis the day
after. As Is well known. President McKinlcy
was the first President to visit Califor
nia. His was the longest continuous
presidential journey in point of miles.
President Roosevelt Is the greatest
presidential sportsman In the hlstorv of
the country. The present is his second
trip to the Far West In search of game.
When he returns he will have traveled
more miles than any of his predecessors.
The American Consul.
A. Maurice Low In London Morning Post.
The American Consul Is sul .generis. He
is made a Consul without previous training-
or' experience, frequently without a
rudimentary knowledge of the language
of the country In which he resides. From
the editorial .chair, the lawyer's office or
the political ranks he Is transferred to the
Consulate: more often than not without
the least knowledge of a Consul's duties,
without the slightest acquaintance with
international or commercial law; as dense
ly ignorant of the history' and manners
and customs of the people among whom
he lives as they are of the idiosyncrasies
of the American mind.
Now, It theories were always as stub
born as facts the American Consul ought
to be a colossal failure, utterly worthless
to his Government and not of the slight
est use to commerce, and candor compels
me to say that a few years ago this de
scription accurately fitted hlw. There
were exceptions, of course: there always
are exceptions, but they only prove the
soundness ot the rule.
Xow most of them-) their werk welL
Prhps the-A-ery fact that' tfeey- feave no
previous training: that they come fresh
from their own country, and everything
they aee appeals to them with the force
and novelty that a new object appeals to
the child with an cxp&ndjfig mind and
makes the same (mpression,, or perhaps
because unconsciously it Is a case of the
selection of the Attest and the man who
Is shrewd and pushing enough to be able
to capture a consulate has qualities which
distinguish him above his fellows what
ever the reason, the fact remains that
these untried men are sent abroad and
that they arc keenly alert to the de
mands made upon them.
They are always investigating. Inquir
ing and wanting to know. They are not
content merely to send to the department
perfunctory reports of official returns of
Imports and exports or mere tables of
figures (although these as matters of rou
tine are not ignored), but they delve into
obscure placet, they compare and con
trast, they offer their advice and sugges
tions freely, and the department allows
them full scope. How much the Consul's
report Is "edited" before it is made pub
lic, or how often It never Is given public

ment has any means of knowing, but the

Darky help Is the despair of every
Southern matron. But of all the darky-
help In Dixie, Billy was the worst. Tell
him on Monday to do a chore, and the
following Monday he would reply that
he "done been specklatln' " about it.
Mrs. Bronson, who gave him his
board and wage In return for hypo
thetical work. had vowed marty a time
that she "jes wouldn't have that lazy
nigger around If she knew wnere she
could get another," but somehow Billy
stayed. At last, after the advent of a
netv girl In the kitchen, 3Irs. Bronson
noticed a reformation In her pet trial.
She could not account for it until, be
ing in the yard one day, she heard the
cook callng him from tho kitchen.
Billy was in the barn. .
"Say, yo worfless trash," the cook
was calling, "did you eveh kiss a real
black culled lady?"
BUy raised his head and grinned.
"I shuah done so," he answered.
"Well, den, when you done fotch In
an ahmful of wood I'm- goln to give
you a chance to kiss another."
Billy waited on no second, bidding,
and Mrs. Bronson held the secret of
the change. The cook knew how.

The editor of the Gazette has been
accused of keeping liquor In his cellar.
This Is a malicious and unspeakable
ralsehood. The liquor Js kept in the
pantry bctweeu the dining-room and
the kitchen. Why not tell the truth?
It is also alleged that the editor of the
Gazette has the gout, caused, by high
living. Yesterday" for dinner he had
home-picked sour-Jock, mustard, dan
delion, horseradish, beet-top greens,
boiled bacon and potatoes, corn bread
and onions. Would you call that high
living? Another lie nalded.
Almost a Glorious Time.
Mr. Editor: Please allow me space in
your paper, on last night there was a
marriage at my house or my home
rather ot a girl that I raised who3e
name was B. B. Garrette Is now married
to Mr. Johnny Homes and we had a
grand time and almost a glorious time
and plenty to eat and to furnish a
large crowd of about 175 or more peo
ple and after which there was plenty
left and her presents was many in
dumber. So you fix it dike It ought to
be and excifse scaterlng words and bad
writing. I remain your Respec.

Queens That Wralk.
A Paris correspondent writes of a curious
incident showing the turns of fortune's
wheel that occurred in the Rue do Rlvoll
the other day. A tall lady, quietly dressed
in black, was about to cross the street
when she was Imperiously waved back
by the gendarme, who stopped the traffic
there at its height to let a carriage con
taining a single occupant pass down to--ward
the Champs Elysees. The lady In
the carriage was the wife of the Minister
of Marine; the woman of no Importance
standing on the curb was Queen Sophie of
the Two Sicilies. Uncrowned Queens who
walk are of no account In Paris.
