MAKES A QUEER DISCOVERY
Deputy Sheriff In nn Illinois Town
Taken by Surprise.
Sheriff Cassldy of Montgomery coun
ty arrived at Chester, 111., having in
custody a prisoner tinder tho namo of
Ellis Glenn, alias II. F. Terry, who
was conviefed of forgjry at the circuit
court In Hlllsboro und sentenced to
imprisonment under tho provisions of
the parolo law. In tho absence of
Watd3ii Tanner the prisoner was re
ceipted for by Deputy Warden Dowell,
who turned tho prisoner over to Pe-
cclving Olliccr Leo for the usual bath
and suit of stripes. Tho prisoner's
hair was closely cut and a. photograph
taken, according to tho custom of tho
prison. Upon being ordered to strip
for tho bath tho prisoner, who was
spare built and of decidedly femlnlno
features, entered a protest. This led
to the discovery that she was a woman.
Deputy Dowell was at once apprised
of the fact, and ho returned her to
Sheriff Cassidy, who left with her for
Montgomery county on tho first de
parting train. Tho fair prisoner says
that, although her age is thirty-eight
years, she has always been single, but
her appearance in a neatlv flttlnir ilnrlr
suit and derby hat would not indicate
that she was over twenty.
When closely questioned tho prisoner
said that she was Innocent of the crlmo
of forgery. She said It had been com
mitted by her twin brother, but in or
der that ho might escape punishment
for the ofl'enso sho had assumed tho
guut, nerself ami allowed him to

The transport Manauense, with Lieu
tenant Colonel Webb Hayes and three
companions of the Thirty-first infantry
on board, hns arrived here, says a Jin
nlla dispatch of November 28. She
nnrrowly escaped disaster. The officers
and soldiers were for twelve days ball
ing with buckets. The steamer was
nnseaworthy, undermanned and short
of provisions. Her engines broke down,
andshe rolled three days in a typhoon.
When the Manauenso anchored In
Manila bay this mornlnc thlrtv-tln-iwi
days from San Francisco, there wero
several feet of water In her hold nnd
four hundred grimy, greasy, hungry,
exhausted soldiers and sailors who had
been passing buckets of water since
November 17, night and day.
First Assistant Engineer Dtnleavy
was under nrrcst, and according to Col.
Webb Hayes of the ship tlto chief
engineer would also have been under
arrest if there had been any one, to
replace him. Tho colonel's report also
declared that the captain of the vessel
loin iiim that tho only thing which
brought them through was the fact that
the men were greenhorns and failed to
realize their danger, while experienced
seamen would have deserted the ship
and taken to the boats In midocean.
The Manauense is a chartered ship,
Hying tho Drltlsh flag. She belongs to
a firm of which Senator Perkins of San
Francisco is alleged to bo a junior
member. Tho officers say the firm
bought her for Sfri.OOO, and they claim
efforts wero mado to sell her to tho
government for $150,000.
Sho started from San Francisco nc
csmpanied by tho transport Pckln,
which carried the remainder of the
regiment, and encountered heavy seas
to Honolulu with accident.
After starting it developed that she
was undermanned and soldiers had to
be detailed to act as firemen, coal
passers and waiters and to do other
work. Deforo reaching Honolulu tho
crew concluded that the ship was not
safe, and.thc majority agreed to desert.
Though they were closely watched,
many of tho crew succeeded in getting
away and the Manauense left Honolulu
with less than half her crew.
Tho captain of the transport Novem
ber 17 told Colonel Hayes that tho ves
sel had sprung a leak, and and investi
gation resulted In finding several feet
of water In her hold. The steam
pumps were tried but failed to work,
and there were no hand pumps on
board. However, forty-six buckets
were found, others wero Improvised
and the soldiers not employed in work
ing the ship were organized into five
shifts, and stripped nnd began bailing.
The same day the leak was discov
ered the machinery collapsed. The
lighting plant failed to work and af
ter tho supply of candles were ex
hausted the ship was in utter dark

The captain of the ship promised
the men 23 cents a day for balling, but
