Famous Swindler Passes Away In

Was the Inventor of the "Gold Brick-
Swindle Had Many Friends, But
Could Not Be Saved From the
Murder Charge In Paris,
New Tork, Dec. 28. A report has
reached this city that Thomaa O'Brien,
the notorious confidence man and a!
leged Inventor of the gold brick swin
dle, Is dead In the French penal set
tlement at Cayenne, where he had been
serving a life sentenec for the murder
of his partner, "Kid" Waddell, In Paris
In 1885. Several of O'Brien's old
friends In this city are said to have re
celved the news direct from Cayenne.
Several years ago It was reported that
O'Brien had escaped from the penal
settlement and was on his way to New
York. The report was never confirmed,
however, and the authorities never got
sight of O'Brien.
O'Brien's career waa a remarkable
one. He was born 53 years ago In
Chicago, and aided by an attractive
personality, managed to make an en
viable record, f In New York, bold
swindles running Into the thousands,
wer numerous and were credited to
his genius. In 1889 he jumped a bond
of $6000 and fled to Europe, but was
recaptured and sentenced to the peni
A remarkable plea, conducted by a
woman, resulted In his escape from a
hotel In Utica, where he was In charge
a prison keeper. O'Brien caught a
steamer here for Europe and reached
Paris safely and remained there until
he waa arrested on the charge of kiti
ng Waddell, hla partner. Money waa
pent lavishly in his defense, but failed
to save him from a life sentence.

There aeems to be no ceaaation In
different parts of the country In favor
of liberal reforms. The situation Is

It has been learned that the social
revolutionary party In Moscow, before

Issued a proclamation condemning tin
death of Grand Duke Serglus and Po

on the occasion of the burial of the vic

19; to ally themse'vea with the labor
movement, and to take Ui) arms In thtlr

The reactionary Grashdantn pub'
llahes a remarkable article against

overthrew bureaucracy, It retained the
sacred principle of the sacred power
of the sovrelgn.
The paper expresses Its hope that

London, Dec. 28. The Telegraph's
correspondent in a Chefoo dispatch
of December 28, says:
"A messenger from Port Arthur de.
scribes the Japanese attack on the
evening of December 22 with a light
column of 5000 and many machine guns
on the northern defenses. They suc
ceeded In reaching a water course be
neath Payueaean mountain. The esti
mated they lost 800 killed. The Jap
anese, finding, both flanks carried all
the wo'rka forming the outlying range
of the main forts, entrenched on a
small hill near Etse mountain under a
severe enfilading fire which caused
them heavy losses.
"It Is reported recently the positions
have been captured behind Llao Ti
which cut off the Russian supply bases
from the main force.
'The foreign correspondents from
Port Arthur declare the fortress the
strongest ever attacked and compare It
to Sevastopol. They insist no other
army In the world could have done
what the Japanese accomplished, but
deprecate as oversanguine the Idea of
Its Immediate caputre."

SAVED MANY LIVES
St. Petersburg, Dec. 26. Emperor
Nicholas' long expected reform ukase
waa Issued tonight The document
deals, under eight heads, with practt
cally all subjects brought to the em
peror's attention by the memorial con
gress of the Zemstvos presidents held
here laat month.
While not specifically pledging the
government to carry out the various
reforms In entirety, as .demanded by
the memorial, it promises each will be
referred to the council of ministers,
with orders to report promptly the full
est measure of relief which can be ac
corded on the various subjects.
One question not touched by the
ukase. Is that of a constitutional as
sembly. Neither is the Jewish religion
specifically mentioned, though freedom
of all creeds Is among the subjects
which will be dealt with.
The ukase promises equal and .full
enforcement of existing laws; assures
the Zematvos of the fullest possible
measure for self-government and en
forcement of laws now existing in their
behalf; and promulgates a scheme of
worklngman's insurance; extends lib
erty to the press and promises a ful)
legal trial to all persons accused.

KeshlnefC, Dec, 26. Governor Block's

Chicago, Dec. 26. The presentation
of medals for heroism at St James
Episcopal church has brought out the
fact that one of the recipients is sev
eral times a life saver. He is Captain
V. Clinnln, Inspector of rifle practice
In the First regiment, Illinois national
guard. A year ago he was a
rescuer hero of the Iroquois fire. He
Is also known as the hero of a yacht
ing incident off Zion City.
The. Rev. James S. Stone, rector of
St. James', after awarding medals to
George H. Shaprlo and A. Waldo Car
lisle of the United States training ship
Dorothea, turned to Captain Clinnln.
'Friends of the captain," he said,
hearing that he had been recommend
ed for this honor, requested his honor
in connection with the Iroquois fire be
made public. Captain Clinnln waa In
the Schiller building, when he saw
smoke pouring from the air shaft
He was one of the first to arrive in the
foyer pf the Iroquois.
After some had already fallen to
the floor, others were piling up on them
in the efforts to escape. Seizing a
woman the captain dragged her to a
place of safety. Then he went back,
edged along the wall and rescued a
chorus girl. He was thrown . down
and trampled on but he returned to
help carry another woman out. He
made three more trips Into the theater,
brought out a child apparently dead,
found his sister-in-law hysterical and
took her to the Schiller building, and
came back, but was excluded from the
fire lines by the police."
The act of heroism, however, for
which Captain Clinnln received the
"life saving medal," founded by Henry
K Weaver In 1900, was the rescue last
May of three men from a capsized
yacht In which he, with eight others
had been sailing.
