Jmy Gooid la UillmU Health.
Nkw York, Sept lO.-'The Record
wye: "Jay Gould iu oa Wall street
Wednesday for the first time ainoe hia
western trip! Hia appearance im
startling. He looked haggard. He was
deathly pale, and hia eyes were sunken
Hia hands were trembling and his voice
quivering. 'An overworked man,' was
the coment of those who saw him.
When he stepped from his private oar
he was congratulated on his improved
looks. Three days had wrought a mar
velous change in him. Five years ago
last January Mr. Gould gave up busi
ness on account of his 'health. His at
fairs were taken in charge by his eon
George J. Gould, and conducted with
ability. The panic of last November
and the succeeding events drew Mr.
Gould back into the financial maelstrom
His DhvBical do w era were gone, how
ever. The trip to the-west' followed.
and from bis looks it does not seem too
much to say that he must give up busi
neas cares entirely. His affairs will b
put in the hands of his sons, Geoige J
and Edwin, both men grown. Mr
Gould appreciates the importance of hit
health. He keeps with him almost con'
stantly Dr. John P. Munn, a physician
of high reputation.

Toledo, O. Sept. 10.-At 8 o'clock
Wednesday morning James Boyd and J.
B. Elsase of WaynwburgJStark Jcounty
Ohio, were found asphyxiated in a room
in the Hotel Jefferson in this city.
Boyd was dead when found, but Elsoas
" will nrobablv recover. They came to
Toledo Tuesday night on business and
retired about twelve o'clock. The
chambermaid noticed a strong smell of
illuminating gae coming from thei
room in ihe morning, and knocked on
tbe door. Failing to receive a response
the door was forced and the men were
found as stated. It'is a case of carelees
turning on or blowing out gas. They
were respectively president and secre
tary of the Waynesburg brick company
and came to Toledo to close a large coo-
tract for supplying tire brie for atreet
paving purposes.
Important Decision.
Dubuque, Ll, Sept. 10. Judge Nej
of the state district court tiled an im
portant decision of a case of the Iowa
railway commission against tbe Chicago
Milwaukee k St. Paul railway company,
Fengler and Schwaegler had shipped
to them some time ago several car loads
of fuel oil from Lima, O. The cars
came from Chicago over the Chicago,
St. Paul k Kansas City, and as the
yards of the consignees could only be
reached by the Milwaukee road, the
latter had to switch the cars in about
three miles. The Milwaukee company
charged from 113 to 915 per car for
this switching, the charge being greatly
in excess of the joint switching rates
fixed by the state railroad commission.
Ob complaint of the consignees, the
commission ordered the company to
switch the can at the rate fixed; the
costpanv refused and the case went into
court. Judge Ney holds that the con
tract between Fengler and Schwaegler
and the oil oompany at Lima, O, is an
interstate oommerce contract, and the
board of railroad commissioners of Iowa
ha no jurisdiction to remedy the griev
ances arising thereunder and the plain
tiffs petition is dismissed. The cast
will now go to the aunreme court on

A Tremendous Explosion Just
Djeaaite Beridlr FoUlo to (he Boar.
New Yobk, Sept 1L General Abbott
and Colonel Mordecay arrived at Fort
Hamilton shortly after 10 a. m. We J nee
Jay and mad a final test of tbe new
chemical high explosive compound
known as terrorite. Holes were dug in
tbe ground six feet deep at the north
western corner of the fort A hollow
shell of copper was then filled with
twelve pounds of tbe explosive end
packed sith cotton. The shell was
then placed in the impovised pit and
covered solidly with earth to the sur
face. It was exploded by means of an
ordinary prime. The detonation was a
long, muffled one, without any smoke
but a volume of earth, weigbing fully
a ton was hurled through tbe air in al
most every direction, risicg to a height
of twent-tiva lo lifty feet The enorm
ous force of terrorite was evidence by
the crater which it made around the
pit, and which measured nearly twelve
feet in diameter. The same quantity
of dynamite or nitro glycerine would
not have done half as much damage.
Four shells were fired in all with prac
tically the same results, while the
weight of the charge was changed in
each instance:
In addition to its greater destructive
force the new explosive offers advan
tages heretofore sought in vain. It can
be handled more safely than gun
powder, which adds to ita value in war
fare. Its force can also be regulated,
and it is claimed to be at least four
times as powerful as dynamite. Ter
rorite is not effected by jarriag or jolt
ing, and so its transportation in cars or
ships does not endanger life.
Dynamite cannot be relied upon after
it has been stored for a Lumber of years.
The inventor of terroite claims that its
quality will not deterrorate unde- any
conditions. This of course is a matter
of conjecture, as the United States en
gineering crops has not yet been able
to tost this claim, frequent changes
of temperature, even below the freez
ing point do not effect terrorite to tbe
came extent as dynamite, nor does it
disintegrate in contact with iron, copper
brass, zinc or and other metal,
i The chief value of tbe new efplosive
is that it can be used for artillery pur
poses. It can be safely fired with gun
powder from any rifle or mortar, At
the moment of explosion tho shell
bursts wita greater force than if it
were filled with ordinary oowder. Ter
rorite can also be used in charging tor
pedoes or submarine mines. A shell of
solid steel weighing 1,000 pounds
thrown from a twelve inch Bteel rifle
and filled with this explosive would
not only pierce sixteen-inch armor, but
mould prove very destructive, when
ite contents were distributed.
Terrorite is an American invention,
Tbe Mexican government has pur
chased the right to use it both on land
and water. Mexican artillerymen say
they are highly satisfied with the result

Dfsver, Sept, 1L George Coppell,
chairman of the board of directors of
the Denver k Rio Grande railroad, ar

He was seen by a United press corres
pondent ' this afternoon. "As has
been announced, the resignation of
President Moffat and General Manager
Smith have been accepted; but Mr.
Smith will remain in charge of the road
until his successor is appointed. Who
will be tbe new officer I cannot say at

who is well acquainted with the west

the Chilian government in accordance
with the terms of compromise effect
ed at a conference between Ex-mayor
Grace of New York and the Chilian
congressional representatives here on
one hand and Secretary Tracy and
Attorney General Miller on the other.
It is an unconditional surrender of tbe
vessel, and a simple back down on the
part of tbe United States, though i is
generally agreed now that the
Itata could not be held by tbe United
States. The terms of the agreement
are that tbe Chilian government is to
pay the United States a sum equal to
the expense incurred in pursuing and
capturing the Itata and that the case
will be nolle pressed in the court and

A Bloody Plot Polled
BoeTON, Mass., Sept 11. The arrest
of James E. Cutler by the Boston
police has spoiled a diabolical scheme to
murder and rob, and brought to light
a collection of infernal machines suf
ficient to blow up half the city.
Cutler's sister oarrel Lutber II.
Rowe, a wealthy manufacturer. Mr.
Rons' home is at Melrose, but b:s
manufa'tory if at Haverhill. Cutler
was angry because Lis wealthy brother-in-law
refused to advance as much cuh
as his extravagant tastes demanded and
tried to take hia life. In 188 he made
the first attempt and wax arrested and
sentenced to two yearn' imprisonment.
As eoon as he was released he again
laid his plans to secure his brother-in-law's
wealth. He loomed on Chancers
street and after his arrest tbe nature
of his plot was revealed.
His original plan was lo blow up bis
victim. He laid in a big stock of giant
powder, nitro glycerine, dynamite nd a
regular arsenal of firearms. In addition
to these weapons be has mary bombs
ready fcr use. Hie original echewe was
to conceal a bomb in an umbrella and
leave it in Mr. Howe's hinds. Upon re.
flection he decided that there was too
much danger to himoelf in that plan, so
be abandoned it for the plan of blowing
up the bouse. But that might involve
the dettsuction of bis sister and that
scheme was gives up.
Lost Wednesday he confided his plan
to an old friend, William Butler, lie
and Butler bad worked together in the
same shop. He asked Butler's ass st
ance in removing Rowe, and promised
him half of the money that waeexpected
as a result of the crime. Butler at first
thought the whole matter was a joket
but when be discovered that Cutler was
really bent on burder and robbery, he
pretended to approve of the scheme in
order to hold the man's confidence and
tben be revealed the plot to the police.
Cutler's plan was to have been
put in operation. He was at the
rendezvous waiting for bis accomplice
when tbe police arrested him. He and
Butler were to have proceeded to Mr.
Rone's bouse in Melrose. Butler was
to ring the bell, and it was anticipated
that Rowe would answer the bell in per
son. As soon as he opened the door,
Cutler was to shoot him. If be missed
his aim. Butler was to open fire. Then,
having disposed of Mr. Rowe, the two
were to cover Mrs. Rowe with their re
volvers and fon-e her to give up all the
money and valuables in the house. In
case she refused, she, too was to be

Cleveland, O., Sept 11. Bishop
Leonard, of tbe Episcopal church Tues
day made public his decision in the
case of Rev. Howard MacQueary of
Canton, O , whose attorneys recently
moved for a modification of the sentence
passed upon bim Bix months ago. Mr
MacQueary was originally suspended
from the university for six months, to
be deposed at the end of that time if he
still refused to recant his heterodox
utterances. The bishop now changes
that sentence to perpetual suspension
until Mr. McQueary shall recant
This does not conflict with tbe canons
of tbe church, and while it leaves tbe
accused still .a minister he cannot
preach until he has conformed to the
bishop's orjer.

police as missing. She has ben stopping
at the residence of Rev. Dr. Bolton.
Last evening Miss Ava and Mrs. Bolton
drove to the Jesuit church, on the west
side. Miss Ava eutered the building,
telling hercompaLion that she intended
having a few minutes conversation wth
the priest. Mrs. Bolton waited a half
hour and finally became alarmed when
Mips Ava did not return. She re
n,?uiueied the missionary liadepoken t.f
receiving Utters in which
and feared she had come to harm. Mrs.
Bolton at once notiiied the police. De
tective who were sent out learned from
the priest at the church that Miss Avo
had called and after tifteen minutes
oonvertation about religioua matter
had gone away. All attempts to gain
any clue to her whereaboutB after that
time have thus far been fruitless.
Miss Ava is Baid to be very wealthy

Mingay said he could not imagine what

Catholics would take her life. Tuesday
she received a lett-r and when she rend
it she became excited. Mingay has no
idea why she should have gone to the

Mrs. Dr. Bolton in an interview said:
Miss Ava was received into ber hus

Methodist) on probation about two
weeks ago. They were much impressed
with her zeal in missionary work and
her Christian character. Mrs. Bolton
