LISBON, Nov. 2. (Special.) Thirty
of the proudest names the Portuguese
aristocracy boasts of are inscribed on
the police blotter and a dozen or more
of their alleged victims are in care
of the hospitals, while the authorities
are digging up the private graveyard
of this aristocratic colony to discover
the awful extent of crimes charged.
Three weeks ago a girl of 15, almost
naked and covered with wounds, crawled
Into the police station of a suburban vil
lage and declared that she had escaped
on her hands and knees from the castle
of Idolfro, where she and a dozen others,
boys and giris. were held prisoners in
torture chambers for the amusement of
rich and aristocratic rovelers.
The police thought the girl insane and
called the surgeons! ' who dressed her
wounds, made her comfortable and then
iiuestioned her as to her sanity. She had
spent only six hours In the human sham

police of the capital were communicated

ARRESTS BY WHOLESALE
Kuk.sIh'm Iron Hand Falls Heavily
on Vladivostok Mutineers.
ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. 2. The latest
advices from Vladivostok say that 150 ar
rests have been made in connection with

began, and thus escaped being damaged.
MAY AVERT RAILROAD STRIKE
English Railroadmen to Confer With
LONDON. Nov. 2. The prospects that
the president of the Board of Trade,
Lloyd-George, may be able to avert the
general strike by arranging a compromise
were brighter today. A full meeting of
the executive committee of the Amalga
mated Society of Railway Servants was
he'.d-thls morning, and It was decided to
postpone all action on yesterday's resolu
tions In favor of a strike until after the
conference which Is to take place with
Mr. Lloyd-George November 6, to which
he. has invited the society to send repre

secretary of the society, and leader of the
strike movement, probably will head the
A meeting of the Parliamentary commit
tee of the Trades Union Congress was to
have taken place next Monday and a joint
meeting of this committee with commit

had been arranged for next Tuesday, but
Mr. Bell has written to the secretary of
tile iirst-named organization suggesting
that the meetings be postponed, adding:
"Owing to a change of circumstances, I
don't think It will be necessary to call
thein together at this stage."
Thin is regarded as a significant step,
because the two meetings were to have
been called in order to support the rail
way men If they went out on strike.

as to Governor.
LOUISVILLE, Nov. 2. Not since the
famous Goebel-Taylor race has there
been a Kentucky campaign so vigorously

after each had stumped the state from
end to end.
Although Kentucky is normally Demo

so many issues of the nonpolitical sort
that good Judges were still at sea as to
the result three days before the election.

' SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 2. Ventur

five vessels of the whaling fleet sail

and having on boaTd 225 men, maV
have been caught In the ice by the
sudden closing in of the Northern
This information was brought, to
this city- by the whaler Jeannette,
Captain Hoffman, the last vessel out of
the Arctic Sea. The missing vessels
are the Herman, Captain James Til
ton; Beluga. Captain Porter; Belvl
dere. Captain Cattle"; Thrasher, Cap
tain Foley, and William Baylies, Cap
tain W. H. BodflsMT Each carries
about 45 men.
None of the whalers was seen by
the men of the Jeannette. The latter
vessel was several times hemmed in
by the ice and in one instance had to
make a path through the pack by the
use of gunpowder before the open sea
was reached. All of the whalers went
further to the northwest this season
than usual, the Jeannette plainly
sighting Prince Williams' Land. ' But
one other vessel of the fleet, the
Bowhead, managed to gain the open
sea after the Jeannette had escaped
Today this whaler was sighted off
this port 20 miles outside the Heads.
It was known positively that the miss
ing ships were hunting in the same
grounds, far to the westward. Cap
tain Cattle, of the Belvldere, has his
wife on board.
Captain George Tllton, master of the
steam whaler Bowhead. which - arrived
yesterday from the Arctic, characterizes
as "rot" a report that five ships of the
whaling fleet are thought to have perished
with all hand?. Captain Tllton, who has
been going Into the Arctic for the last 25
years, said there was little foundation for
"The Arctic is big," he said. "The other
ships evidently found whale elsewhere and
all probably will come home with big
catches. Of course they may have been
caught In the ice. but even In that event
there is no occasion O worry, as they
cannot be very far from Point Barrow."
The Bowhead had a successful cruise,
