If thu pollen linil positive information that
armed rlotciscro eipectcd ntany hour they
could not bn betterpiepared for Instant duty
than they nro to-day. Along Twenty-second
street , tun entlru lumber district Is under
guard. From Blue Island nvcnue cast to thu
ilvcr tlicro Is not an cnti.inco or crossing
where there is not ten policemen within pistol
tel shot innjje. Thu propriutois continue to
sit In their olllces and smoke , but they do
not t.ilk freely or laugh loudly. The situa
tion grows more severe to them each day.
Yesterday they told a reporter that they
were going to send lor Michigan men to put
In tlielrjaids ; to-day they hesitate to send
for the men. One pioprlelor with big Intci-
ests , .said he foiled the result of putting Im-
poitcil men hi the yards. Thu present police
force might guaid them by day , but It could
not guard the houses In which they would
sleep nor the notes of lumber piles bv night.
Itenctlon on the part of the woikmcn yester
day , and thu Indilfetenco to-day asto whether
they got woik nt all or not , make
the ymd owners feel that the lumber shovers
nnd Imndleisnio backed by other foices far
inoin numerous and dangerous. The extra
largo guard of police present constantly
where thcio Is no immediate sign ot danger
would indicate that the olllccrs have a simi
lar appiohunslon. If such fear exists In po
lice rlielc.s , knowledge onvlilclt It is based IB
routined to those who will not talk about It.
Kldlnir tin ouch the Bohemian territory ,
north of thu lumber disti let , last week ono
could see nnd talk with croups of men who
then claimed that they were very needy and
must return to work nt any price. These
m otips of hungry people lm\e disappeaiuu.
Some of those who began work last week
have quit. Tlic conclusion Is that they Imvo
leeched aid for their present needs from
some souico. This adds strength to the
theory Unit thu lumber Inboiers have friends
outside. The number of men actually ut
work In the yanls to-day Is not sunicicnt to
do nny satisfactory amount of business. A
canvass of the ymds shows that tliev avci-
nge from 10 to 30 per cent of their old time
foree. The planing mills aio all sending out
smoke nnd doing little work , such as the
limited work in theyaids demand.

nllns Mnxwcll , now on dial for tlio murder
ofG. Arthur I'reller , which will constitute
ils own defense and which will bo urged by
ils attorneys In trial. In a word ho will
confess the killing of 1'rcllcr by accident
vhlle noting ns his physician , nnd that be-
ng excited nnd frightened lie "concealed"
nstcnd of making known the fact of his
lcathv llo declares he has always wanted to
ell the facts , nnd only lefralncd by advice
of hlrtattorncjs. Tlio follow Ing Is Brooks'
slntcmcnt :
1'rellcr was suircrlng from prlvale dUense ,
'or which I had previously pic cribed. mix-
ng tliu medicines myself trom bottles In my
nediclnuchest , which I carried with me , but
ils ailment had reached Ilia stage when it
was necessiiy for me to make certain Inv esti-
: atoits. ! I was obliged to use n catheter , nnd
n using a catheter when the pails were in-
lamed 1 had previously applied chlofoim. I
\plnlned the process to 1'ieller and told him
what 1 should nave to do. He was not only
willing but was very anxious for me to treat
lim In that manner.
Urooks then tells of the puichaso of the
cliloiofoim , which was spilled In the sink on
Sunday nflcrnooil while ho was
washing the Instruments piepnratory
to the opoiatlon of his going to a ding sloie
and buying mote , denying incidentally the
statement that he thcio had shown evidences
of huiry nnd excitement , nnd continued :
About r > p. m. we began the operation. 1 ad-
inlnlsteicd chloiofoim in the usual way ,
liolulng a saturated cloth to his nose. 1'ieller
passed tinough the tir.st stage all light. It
took seveinl moments. 1 don't know exactly
liow long. Then ho cntcied the second
stage , and here the teniblu result came. 1
illscovered too late that ho was dvlnir. Imag
ine my honor when this I act dawned on me.
Iwns wild with flight , but had presence of
mind enough to cut thu .shht ana undershirt
from the body , and ceding : i wet towel 1 beat
him aiound the neck and shoulders for half
nnhourmoic , I did not give up till I was
ready to drop from exhaustion , and my ef-
loits weiu not icla\ed until ho had "been
dead for some time. All the clothes ho had
on nt the tlmuweion shirt and undeislilrt ,
Ue had Rtilpped for thu operation.
What did I do when I saw my filend was
dead ?
What could I do ? I didn't know what to
do except dilnlc , and I drank ficelv. I
drank everything I eould get wine , whisky ,
everything. What weio my thoughts ? I
hadn't any. All I lemembcrls that 1 diew
on a pair of drawers , tlio fust tha' fell Into
my hands , and put the body Into my tiunk ,
fiom vvhleh 1 bad icmoved overj thing.
What w as done besides this 1 Imvo no recol
lection of. Liquor nnd constcniHtlon had
possession ot mo nnd I knew only that my

remained In my room that night , the same
room In which tlio lomalns weie , nnd it
would be n lie toi me to say I slept , tor I did
not , nnd I was glad when morning came.
What I did alter leaving my loom jou
know , for it has all been punted. "
He says he supposed the post moitem ,
when the body was found , would disclose the
nature ot the operation and cause of death.

A WOMAN'S CAUKKU.
Havltifr Probably Killed Five Persons
She Commits Suicide.
CHICAGO , May 18. A Special despatch
from Joliet , 111. , says : The double suicide of
Mrs. Black ami Albert Wylei , at Fiankfoit ,
hasiecnllcd to the nalghbois circumstances
which point toward n career ot ciime on the
pait of the dead woman. When only 10
years of ago she man led n man named
Schlotman , and two yeais later their first
born was found in n well. In 18C3 John
Black and wife came from Germany and
were hired by Schlotman. The families became -
came quite intimate , and In n shoit time Mrs.
Black died suddenly. Schlotnmn's death
followed soon alter. Block was In Michigan
at this time and the widow sent for him , and
In a short time maided him. Last Christmas
Wylcr was hired , and two months later
Black died. All these deaths weio
mysteries and doctors ah\ays c.dled , but ar-
livcd to late to do rnythlng. No suspicions
were entertained on account ol the wealth
and icbpectability of the lamlly. A shorl
time since the widow's son discovctcd illicit
icliitions between her and Wvlcr. and a
family council demanded Wjler s discharge.
The widow refused , nnd on Sunday evening
came tlm douhlo suicide or perhaps minder
nnd sulcido-by the one to whom these tacts
point.

immediately conceincd. It was a peaceful nnd
reasonable mode of .settling the serious dif-
reicnccs that fionitlmeto tlmeniosobetween
large corpoiatlons and their employes. The
nubile Interest was the hist consideration.
Mr. Coke recognl7ed the absolute necessity
of restraining the lallroads. No one , bo
sr.Id , could read the histoiy of railroad de
velopment without a feeling of piolound in
dignation nnd disgust that a sjstom which ,
like tlmt of lliu nulionds which had be
come so indispeiislblo a necessity to
civilization and should be an Insttumcntallty
in the hands of a lew Individuals lei the
systematic lobbery pf the people. It was to
pay dividends on wateied stock that wages
on thorailioads were s < mce/ed down. The
ovll would never coriect Itself. The state
govciiiment and thu United States govern
ment , while uniting ; to protect lallroad pron-
eity , as they should piotect railroad property
and the Inteiests of tlio public from assaulter
or damage , should also unite to ciush out the
practice which lea to tlio labor diflienlties
that had become so serious a teatuio ot the
ralliond problem.
Air. Logan , without committing himself to
support 01 otheiwiseot the house bill , would
nt the pioper time submit a substitute tor.it
The bill provided .arbitration , but when ,
niter trouble had ailsen , and nftei nrbltra
tion should bo appealed to and decision
leudered. there was no means of putting the
decision into effect He would pioposo that
a commission , to bo called commission of
arbitration , should bo selected by the piesi-
dent ; that the men should bo selected , pait
ot them from tliclr knowledge of law and
part for tlicli knowledge ot tlio labeling in.
tciests of the countiy and liom
among those Intcicsts ; commlsslonois to
bo live in number ; to have power to
examine witnesses , etc. lie would provide
that when decision is made It should no tiled
In the United States dlstuct coiur , placed on
rccoid theic , and become a decree of the
court which would hucuio a method of infoi-
mation for decision. Under the house bill
that could not bu done. Ho would also make
It the duty ot the commissioners to examine
all questions of contioveisy aiising between
coiporatlons and their employes , nnd make a
report to congiess. Ho would erect the
bureau of labor into a department of labor
and require the commissioner of labor to
communicate with nil corporations , to ascer
tain particular as the numbei , chnractei and
compensation of employes , prices ot food ,
rent , etc. , and to submit comparative state
ments , so tar as practicable , similarpaitlcu-
lars relating to labor in Kurope.
The pension bill was then laid before the
senate.
Mr. Cnllom thought it the duty of the
co\eminent to put on pension nil soldiers
who wc-ie unable to take caioof themselves
without lerjuii Ing them to piovo that their
disability vas inclined In the sen ice. It
some .such bill as this was not passed Wo
would lind the old soldlcts In the poor
houses of the country.
Mr. Ingalls said that notwithstanding the
oxtiava ant eulogy paid to the demociatic
senators by the senator from Indiana , ( Mr.
Vooihccs ) Mi. Ingalls had always noticed
that whenever a proposition to liberali/o pen
sions was made , the senators on that side
of the chamber ahvavs got out their slates
and penclN and began Imputing how much
the pioposition would eost They had not
been In haste to ask whether the proposi
tion was just. It them weio nny veteran
foldleis ot the icpubllc who were liable
to become inmates of alm&housus or
dependents upon public chailty ho ( Ingalls )
did not pioposo to irffjuiro how much It w ould
cost toieliuvotlieni. it would bun national
scandal and dlsgiaco for a nation ns able as
this , with uncounted millions lying in the
treasuiy , to penult those who had served
under Its Hag to become Inmates of the poor-
house.
The question then aio o as to the precise
meaning of ceitaln piovlsions ol tlio bill , but
without acting upon Mi. Mcl'heroon's mo

Mi. Ulount , fiom the committee on post-

ments , it having been refened to thu com-
mittcuot tlio whole.
Thu house \\ent < into commltteo for the
purpose of consideilng tlieso aniunel-
ments.
Mr. Hlount addressed Ids icinarks to thai
clause known as "subsidy amendment" nnd
made mi argument In opposition to It. An
oppropiiatlon ot § 500,000 , ho contended ,
would not seem o any advantage In the way
of additional mall trios but
would Imvo n contrary ellect. Un
der theclauso the postmaster general would
bo icqulred to contract , ICat all , for not less
than three nor mote than live veais , nnd this
would act as an absolute Inhibition upon nny
other company than the one holding the con-
tiact fiom attempting to traver.so the same
line. The Incicaso In the numbei ot dnvs
would bo stopped , and while the contract
was In force any Increase of foreign postal
servlco would boinovcnted. Ho went onto
3uoto from statistics to show the differ-
nco in pay which steamship companies
received under tlio present law for carrying
malls fiom that which they would lecelvo if
proposed legislation weio enacted. As an in
stance of the evils which ho maintained
would follow such an enactment , ho stater
that malls carried by the Oriental nnd Occi
dental lines nt a test of 35,000 would have
to bo carried at a cost ot SloyV-iO. ( He denied
the conectness of thodeckmitlon that the do-
ellnoof Ameilcau commerce was duo to the
lact that the United States lefused subsidies
to Its steamship companies , and asserted that
the decline was attrlbuuibo to the narrow
minded policy which forbid American citl
zens from purchnsinguhips abioact.
Mr , Iti 's opposed the foreign mal
seivico amendment , and said that i
the cgcntlemen wUhcd to build in
Ameilean commerce by giantlng sub
tulle * , let the transaction DO called by its
right name , but the goveinmcnt should not
; rant subsidies under the pretence of paying
fair compensation for transportation ot
mails.
Mr. Gucntlicr said that the npproptlnllon
lid not rlso to the dlcnlty of n subsidy. It
was a gut puio nnd simple. It was charity
to the I'ncltle Mall Steamship company , n
correlation which congiess should not touch
w Ith n ton-foot pole.
Pending fuithcr discussion the committee
rose and the house adjom ned.

MISS FOLSOM'S BIG FORTUNE.
The Wealth of President Cleveland's
IJridc The Date of the Woil-
UllJR.
Buffalo Correspondence of the New
Yoik Morning Journal : In absence of
fresh novvs from Miss Folsom's party in
Kurope the wealth ot the Folaoms con
tinues to bo u topic of conversation.
The Folsoms have for many years
ranked among thewoaUhvaml influential
people of western Now York. The father
of Mi6 > Frances Folsom , the latc Oscar
lolsqn.iirjvasrfUPt a .imidont man in
linnnuial mntte.rs , nml uied poor , but ho
was an exception in n largo family.
iie.nj.imin Folsoni , the HullUlo nttor-
ncy , who is novvin Europe withMist > Fol
som , has already inherited : v quarter of a
million of dollais , and will doubtless re
ceive a largo acdition to his fortune from
the estate of his father and other rela
tives. The senior Benjamin i'olsoin ' was
for a quarter of a century or more a resi
dent of Attica , N. Y. , where humudc a
lanro fortune as a lailrnad contractor.
\Vesteni investments made him n mil
lionaire or nearly so , and Benjamin Fol-
soni , Jr. , received at least one-half of
the estate. He is a bachelor of quiet
though retined tastes , and the present
European trip is being made largely at
his expense.
The father of the lamented Oscar
Folsom is still alive. His wealth is about
a half million , and Mi s Frances Folsom
is ono of his heirs. This popular young
lady will bo rich in her own rigjit in a
few years. In fact she und her widowed
mother already enjoy a portion of the
wealth wliich Colonel John B. Folsom
has willed to her.
Mr. Cleveland recently described him
self as a poor man , and in comparison
with the average monibur of the Folsom
family ho is poor. Aliss Frances Folsom ,
his intended bride , is already the virtual
possessor of a larger estate than Mr.
Cleveland has ever been ublo to accumu
late.
late.The
The president's wedding , according to
tlio latest ropoits , will occur lioro on
June IS. The latest advices fromEmopo
aio to the cflbct that Mrs. Folsom was
suflbring a ritlttpso of the roinan fever ,
but that if she is able to travel there will
bo no dulay in thu date of the wedding.
On tlio other hand , if the wedding should
bo postponed on account of Mrs. Fol-
soul's illness , it will occur within a week
after her ruturn to America.
