time slnco ho became nubllclv identified na
Mrs. Maybrlck's ' paramour , Albert Briorlji
talked to-day , knowing that his statement
would appear In print. Brlcrly Is tall nnJ
Blonder , about thirty-eight years old. His
face Is sallow and clearly cut. Ho wears a
light moustache nnd pointed chin board ,
Upon meeting tlio Herald correspondent
Briorly promptly refused to make a state
mcnt for the nubile. It was suggested tlm' '
thcro wns not much time to waste , n , If hi
coultt do anything In Mrs. Mnvbrlck's behalf
ho must do It before the Uoih , ttio date ol
her execution. Ho said ho had beet
silent for fear of Injuring Mrs. Mnybrlclt
nnd would not talk now unless ho though
It would benefit her. Ho talked with uiuc !
earnestness. At times h sat at a desk am
strode up and down. Ho said :
'I have boon maligned , persecuted am
misjudged In every way. It has broken uj
my business and will cause mo to leave thl
city , but lama man , and I have made n
complaint. I only dcslro that the torribl
misfortunes of the woman , whoso treatment
mont 1ms been scarcely fair , ma ;
not bo further increased througl
inu. Before the llrst proceeding
ngalnst Mrs , Maybrick were Instituted o
talked of I had arranged for u vacation In th
shape of n tour about the Mediterranean ,
bad made my preparations without a though
that any trouble was coming to her , for
had no expectations or suspicions of any
This is evident by Itself in n letter from in
to her which was quoted In court , In whlo !
letter 1 said that I was going away. Th
last Interview I had with Mrs. Maybrick wa
on April 0. Between our meeting in Londoi
on March SI nnd this interview I tmtl sec
her only once , and that was at the Gram
National mooting. I wish you would mak
n note of that and let people Judu
how far those thrco meeting !
n long time previous to Mr. Maybrick
death , Justify the . .perpetual assumpllonta
through the trial and particularly by th
Judge that she mil 1 wore on the close :
terms of Intimacy and hand In hand , so t
speak , In the whole mutter. However , tli
moment that I hoard that she was thrcatcnc
with trouble I abandoned my trip. I notlflc
Messrs. Ceaver nnd Sir Charles Kusscll tin
I was entirely in their hands , though I wi
of the opinion nnd , I presume , that the
were that , being an interested party , m
statements would not have the value the
wcro entitled to. I also prepared a stati
inent mid certified to it for use should it b
needed in the trial. I remained all throup
the case and" was not called. I was ready o
any time. "
"When did you llrst meet Mrs. Maybrick }
"I met her once or twice during last yec
in this city. It was merely u distant ai
quniiitunccship , however , up to last Noven
ber. "
"Did you hnvomany interviews with her ?
"Very few. "
"Did you over go on any Journeys t
gctuor excepting a trip to London ) "
"No , that was the only tiino wo were ev <
nway together. "
"Who Buefiosted that trip ! "
"I dccllno to state. I must refer you t
the evidence adduced in court. "
"Had you any uhdorstuuding when yo
parted from each other in London 1"
"Yes , wo had a distinct understanding. I
the first place , that nothing of the sort at :
by that I mean mooting in London or othi
places away from home was over to occu
again. " .
"Did you have any understanding that an
meetings wore to take ploco at horaol"
"Nono whatever. On the contrary v
parted in London as if wo wore never
meet again. You can readily undorstat
that I cannot speak as freely as I could wisl
I am not thinking of myself in the tnutto
but of her. "
"Did you have nny understanding abet
"Yes , it was distinctly understood that vi
were not to correspond. It was agreed tlm
she would not write unless she got into at
complications in consequence of our Journey
If she aid she was to lot mo know. I to
you this because I wish you to undcrstnn
that ( ho extent of our acquaintance and tli
depth of our Intlmuoy has been most ui
warrautodly overestimated , both to Her ii
Jury and mlno. "
"When did you next see her after the tr
"i the Grand National , nnd when nfti
tlmfyfiha caino to sou me , a few days uftu
wards , she came to tell mo about her husbai
boating her and dragging her about the root
.It was brought out in the ovldonuo. That
the last interview I ever had with hor. Tin
was April 0. "
' Have you any opinion to express , fro
your knowledge of affairs , concerning h
"I iio not know as it would bo wise to o :
press them r.t the present time. "
"Io you think tlioro will bo any botti
time than Urn present ! "
"Perhaps not. Well , then , there nro Iv
tilings which I feel inclined to suy , and thi
are these ; In the first plnca I am of tl
opinion that a great deal of unnecessary an
uncalled for Injury has boon done her. As
defendant in court , on trial for her life , an
entitled to the utmost degree to u fa
hearing , I think the Judge laid umicceasni
and unfair stress on the motive , Tl
"John" business was an error from begi
plug to end. It told terribly ngalnst he
The letters frc"i ' 'John" were perfectly I
nocenl loiters. It was tSs view the ] ud |
took of It that made it toll so heavily 6T. t1
Jury. This Is simply my belief , of cours
but If the truth over comes out from the goi
tlciuan himself it will bo fully ban
out by him. And furthermore , I ot
not keep from blaming the Jud |
for big unauthorized nud stated assumptlc
that the intimacy between Mrs. Maybrlc
nnd myself , which ended on March 31 las
was In progress during ull Iho period whic
the trial covered. "
"Hiw your statement , made this uiornln ;
covered tlio ground i"
' 'Yoj , this ground and more , I have place
It In the hands of her solicitors tot present
lion to the Uomo secretary , "
The most important part of M
Briorly's statement 1s thus made i
lomothlng which appears not i
but between the lines. The curious fac
imd strungo motives which underlie this ca
from beginning to end are something urnu
tag , and the half has not been told. Oi
thing is certain , however , nnd that is thnt it
Mrs. Mnybnek is executed she will hnvo
been done to death by n woman. I atn la
possession of certain facts which throw a
very peculiar side llcht on Briorly's state
ment regarding the domestic qunrrol which
followed the Grand National. It was caused
by a woman , and that woman wns
herself In love with Brlorly ,
nnd it was she who , through
Maybrick , made the trouble. She was o
near rotative of a woman who constituted
herself n public proscculior before May-
brick's death , nnd to that end was a most
skilled traitress to Mrs. Maybrick during all
he tlmo of the proceedings , in which the
alter gave her full confidence.
Baroness Von Koguo gave the Herald cor
respondent n letter , in which she thanks the
press for Us efforts la behalf of her "unhappy
child. "

FonT ROIHNSON , Neb , , Augunt 13. ' [ Spe
cial Telegram to TUB BER. ] The arrival of
General Brooke , commanding tha depart
ment of the Platte , his personal staff nnd the
BtufT of the department , who reached hero
this morning , may bo said to mark the begin
ning of the great encampment of the regular
army , which is to continue for a month In
Lhls vicinity. Active preparations have noon
In progress for weeks past at all the posts In
the department of the Platte , looking to the
concentration of troops at Camp George
Crook. As originally'planned , every com
pany of infantry nnd troop ot cavalry in the
department wns ordered to concentrate on
the military reservation of Fort Hoblnson
by August 20. Later orders detailed four
companies of the Second Infantry to attend
the militia encampment in Iowa , und still
later orders detailed the headquarters band
and six companies of the same regiment fern
n week's ' duty at the G. A. H. encampment
at Kearney. The latter will ultimately Join
the company hero , but will save some
soventy-ilvo miles of marching winch was >
laid out for them on the original plan. Even
with the deductions of necessary squads ,
ofllcers and surgeons loft at the various
posts to protect property during tno absence
of tha main commands , thcro will still
gather at Camp George Crook the
largest collection of ofllcora and
men for catnp duty which has boon
brought together slnco the days of the recon-
structton period. Counting in the troops
which will reach hero from Forts Douglas ,
Hobinson , Bridgcr , D. A. Russell , Sidney ,
Omaha , Nlobrara , McKinney nnd Wiishakio
twenty-flvo hundred ofllcers and men will
before the end of the present month , bo engaged
gaged in Held exorcises on the sixteen square
miles of ground which comprise the Forl
Uoblnson military reservation.
The first command to assemble at Cainf
Geortro Crook , by which name the military
encampment will bo known , will bo the garrison
risen nt Fort Robinson , comprising flvo troop ;
of the Ninth cavalry nnd three ol
the Eighth infantry. The remaining
commands already on the march , us they ar
rive one by one Yvlll bo given stations on thi
beautiful plateau which has been aolcctoi"
for the gathering. Most of these have al
ready started , and all may bo expected to nr
rive by the aotti of the current month. The
garrison from Sidney will have 140 miles tc
march overland from the Union Pacific rail
road northwards to this point. The garn
sons from the west will concentrate nem
Fort Laramlo and march In a northoastorlj
direction from that location. The troops
from Fort Niobrara will have almost
us long a inarch as these from Sidney
almost directly westward , ninety miles o
which will bo through the sand hills. Nine
surgeons accompanying the various com
mands will guard the health of the camp
while a complete field hospital sorvlco wil
bo maintained with all the appliances used it
time of actual warfare.
General Brooke , who has had as much mil
itary experience , to say the least , as any de
partment commander in the service , selectee
the site for the camp on the military rescr
ration or Fort Robinson as the oiu
most available of all these suggested ,
In the first place , It lies ncuro :
to the center of the department , all thing !
being considered , nnd in the second place
the topographic surroundings are such as tc
afford an almost perfect field for tlu
manoeuvres in which the troops will engage ,
The ground lies in the beautiful valley o
the White river , in the most picturesque
perhaps the only picturesque section of No
braska. The valley at this point is nonrli
two miles wido. and between the river basic
and the encircling buttes or bluffs there it
ample ground for sham battles , sulUclcnt ac
conimodations for u camp double the size o
that proposed , perfect dratnacc , and a goot
supply of clear , soft and cool water. Thi
military post of Fort Robinson lies witlilr
gunshot of the camp , and the Fremont , Elk
horn & Missouri Valley trains run withit
pistolshot of the tents. The question of sup
plying the quartermaster's and commissary
departments Is thus easily solved. So far a :
the natural surroundings nro concerned , IK
more beautiful alto could have been chosen
To right and loft rise the pine-crested buttea
which are the characteristic feature of thu
portion o * Nebraska. Throuch the platoat
runs the White river , hurrying northward U
its Junction with the Missouri. Midway am
dividing glides Soldier creek , fed by springi
from the divide which seoarates the vallo.i
of the White river from that of Hat creek.
Cool nights and an altitude which makes the
heat of mid-day not unpleasant , combine tc
render the climate particularly favorable.
Five miles off lies the flourishing town ol
Crawford , with churches , schools und more :
well stocked with merchandise , which car
supplement any of tlio deficiencies whicli
may bo found in camp.
QEvory indication points to a most suc
cessful Inauguration of summer mautuuvrc' '
in the regular army. The importance of tin
encampment is much greater ttiiin the avorugi
civilian would supposo. As said before , It h
the largest gathering of regular troops foi
field .service , barring the Indian camtmignt
of IbTil , which has collected since the close o
the war. Sixteen thousand dollars hnv :
been appropriated by the war department t <
pay the expenses of the concentration o
troops nnd the maintenance of the cnoarnp
mcnt at Camp Gcorgo Crook. The genera
commanding , with his personal stult and hi :
entire departmental staff , will bo on tin
ground to supervise the movements
All the Incidents of actual warfart
will bo i eallstically reproduced ii
the vicinity of the camp. Tin
instructions given to recruits and even olc
soldiers must bo of inestimable value in im
proving the discipline , knowledge and inorah
of the army. In addition , the collection o ,
so many onicars , u number of whom wil
bring their families , will add to the roughei
features of camp Ufa the moro delightful
ono of social Intercourse. There will hi
many reunions of olllc.ors who have not me
since the war , und of Juniors whoao lasi
greeting was a farewell nt the mllltarj
academy. Tim BEE will keep its rcuderi
thoroughly posted ns to the various fuaturei

itors this morning. Attorney W. S. Forest
was the llrst , and the prisoner was very glad
to see him. The others were not so welcome.
They wcro old Mr. nnd Mrs. Carlson , In
chnraa of Dotectlvo Hodrlck. They were
taken to Iho iron door that guards the en
trance to the boys' department and Burke
was brought from his cell and placed in
front of them.
"That is Frank Williams , the man who
routed the coltago of us , " each ol
them said , nftcr peering through the :
grating of the door nt him foi
a moment. Burke turned several shades
paler ns ho saw them nud his lips twitched ,
but ho pretended not to know them nnd gave
no signs of recognition ,
The world , which the London Times holds
In awe , does not include among Its inhab
itants Cook county's coroner , Henry L ,
Hertz. Some tlmo after the coronor's In.
quest on the murder of Dr. Cronln hnel
begun the London Times came to the con
elusion that the proceedings might bo 01
value in the furthering of Its own interests ,
About n week later an American ronresout.v
tlve of the paper appeared nt the Inquest foi
the purpose of gathering such facts as
would , ho thought , assist that publication , bul
ho found ho had arrived at the lull end ol
the inquest and that to obtain nn intelligent
idea of what had tultun place it would be
necessary to secure a copy of the report ol
the entire proceedings. How would ho got
It ) In his quandary ho bethought , himself
of a lawyer who had once demonstrated his
sympathy with British interests by dropping
n chaste salute on the royal right hand of hci
majesty the queen. Inspired by the thought ,
ho sought the lawyer. Would the latter as
sist him I Would ho , well ho would , and ut
once , and putting on ono of his fl3 election
hats , and with his breast swelling with the
pride of an ambitious reporter on his flrsl
assignment , the lawyer hied himself to the
coroner , to whom ho said :
"I would like to got u copy of the testi
mony tulten by the coroner's Inquest. "
"You can't have it , " said the coroner.
That evening the story got wind and also
an explanation of the coronor's conduct.
According to it the refusal was duo to the
fact that the coroner owed his election tc
some influential atm-Cronin men , nnd fear
ing to offend thorn ho declined to assist the
London Times. A reporter called on Coronet
Hertz and asked him if the story and ex
planation were true.
"Tho story Is , " ho replied , "but the explan
ation Is buncombe , pure and unadulterated ,
I refused because I did not see why I should
put myself out for nn English paper , al
though had any American newspaper desired
sired it I should have been glad tc
oblige It. The attorney who asked mo in
sisted upon having a copy aud I sent him u
the judge. The Judgn heard him , and ther
mo , and decided I was not obliged to furnish
uny copy. I should add perhaps that I wat
offered p.iy for my trouble. Now about the
explanation regarding my not wishing to of
fend the anti-Croninitos. BOKCS was calleel
an anti-Cronlnlto , nnd moreover , ho worked
hard for my election. Did I spare him 1 It
would have boon very easy for mo to do sc
without anyone being the wisor. The re
suits show that I did not. Now , sir , I an
perfectly capable to run uiy office without
fear or favor. I have done so , und I shal
continue to do so. The English press I don't
consider has uny claim on me. "

Chicago's Health Commissioner In
jecting the Kluld.
CIIIOAOO , August 13. [ Special Telegram
to Tun Ben.--Dr. ) Do Wolf , in the last days
of his administration as commissioner of
health , made his ofllco a Bothoida. The
rumor that ho was rejuvenating the aged
with Dr. Brown-Soquiml's ' elixir of Hfo
without charge was rauldiy building up for
h'.tit ' n largo practise In this specialty. To-day ,
otthousdal hour , six intlrm people , who
wcro by no moans mendicants , p'oapnted
themselves for treatment. Ono after an
other they rolled up their sleeve * to the
shoulder , then the nocdlo-llko mouth of the
hypodermic nyringo wns stuck n good Inch
straight down Into tlio muscle and a good
tcaspoonful of the elixir was forced into the
arm. The-effect of this operation cannot
bo fully described , as the patients wont about
their business , refusing to give their names.
Singular to relate , ono ut the gentlemen who
took the treatment claimed to have experi
enced disastrous effects from a former Injec
tion. The sufferer was Mr. .loseiih Wcstoa-
berger , u traveling man. For tno last two
months lie has sufTcrod greatly from sciatica
in the loft hip nnd leg , but lie has never been
compelled to go to bed nor to leave the road.
Last Friday morning Dr. Do Wolf gave him
nn Injection of the elixir In the right arm.
Ho experienced no effect until Immediately
after eatini ; supper that evening. Then
ho was suddenly solzcd with pains ,
and had to tnko to his bed.
No physician was summoned , but
his family were up nil night kceplnc hot bottles
tles to different parts of his body , to urovcnt ,
as they supposed , his dying. When morn
ing came ho was much reduced in strength ,
but to his surprlso nnd delight found thnt tha
painful sciatica was nearly cured. Ho Is so
much bettor that ho was on Hand tins morn
ing , the most nnxious of any of the group to
take his medicine. Ho was also suffering
from severe lameness in the arm into which
tlio elixir was injected.
Dr. tiathaway , of 1010 west Monroe street ,
was also present. The doctor in addition to
belliu advanced In years suiters from heart
disease and dropsy , and goes on crutches.
Dr. DoWolf said of his case , last Saturday ,
that the elixir had no effect , but Dr. Hatha
way himself said thismoriiiug that the elixir
had had an effect on him , but not the de
sired effect. When ashed what the effect
produced was , he said ho would rather not
tell. He ulso took another dosa to-day.
A well-dreased lady was present to nego
tiate lor the treatment of her son who could
not leave his bed.
Commissioner Wickovsham , who succeeds
Dr. Do Wolf to-morrow , is not nt all friendly
to the elixir. Ho wants it distinctly under
stood though that it Is only by his courtesy
that Dr. Do Wolf administers it In the com
missioner's ofllco for the present ; that the
commissioner takes no hand in it whatever ,
and that thu health department is not respon
sible in any way m the matter.
A Jury ol'Thirty-Two.
Ci.nVKHNii , August 12. The question 01
the efficacy of the Brown-Scquard olixii
was submitted to-day to a tribunal of thirty-
two ladies and gentlemen. That their ver
dict might have weight In the scientific
world especial care was taken In the selec
tion ot subjects. The first requisite was
that they should have some positive ailment
The next consideration was that they be
persons of sound mlr.d and of good standing
in the community. Dr. H. C. Brainord vis
ited Brighton and wns given the privilege ol
selecting victims for slaughter from n large
Hock of shoep. They were killed In hi :
presence , und after having scoured the part.1
desired for the experiments , ha aturtcd.back
to the city. The Jurors comprised twenty
four men aud eight women. They were at
torneys , doctors , ministers nnd business
men. One was a lightning manipulator ,
who was suffering from telegraphers' paral
ysis. It was arranged tnat they make n
written statement of the effects of the experiment
iment , nud to-morrow afternoon they will
submit reports. Upon receiving the state
ments IJr. Bralnerd will compile n perfectly
candid report of the result of the exporl
munt. Ho feels tmt | his scientific reputation
is in a measure at stake , and will present
the matter in its proper light.
The American Body To Become an

MINNEAPOLIS , August li The nationa

opens in this city to-uiorrow. Between six
and seven hundred delegates will bo present.
The California delegation was the llrst tc
arrive. The party was unfortunate in losing
ono of its members en route Just before
reaching Denver. To-day was devoted to f
plciuo at Spring Park. Judging from prescnl
indications there seems not the slightest
doubt that the Ancient Order of Forcstcn
in this country will boa distinct organization
after to-morrow. Exactly how the matter
will come up in the convention is not settled
It Is expected It will tuko the form of n rose
lutlon. Rather new light is thrown upon
the situation by Chief Raiigcr-olcct J. Wil
son Murray. Speaking of the subject this
morning thu gentleman said :
"It is not so much the color line that will
split the American organization away from
the English order as the fact that tlio'Eng-
llsh high court 1ms tried to coerce , and has
broken faith with us. "
There seems to bo a difference of opinion
ns to what name the now organization wil
tnko. Some favor the name of Tha America ! :
Ancient Order of Foresters , while others
favor tltlo "Tho Ancient Order of Foresters

says , several other men who are desirous

could not accept under any circumstances. "
Mr. Tanner thought that either Mr. Alger
or Judge Voazoy would bo elected , and as It
was probable that the latter would bo of
fered a place on the intor-Btuto comtnorca

England mid tell the glass blowers there
that If any of them wanted work there would
probably bo a elmnco for thoui in Pittsburgh
Tbo men cumo over and work was found for
them. I do not think It is possible to provo
that the employers who secured tno services
of thcso mechanics know auythlnpc about their
intended immigration until they hud landed.
There certainly was no contract. The law
was unacted for the purpose of keeping out
mechanics nnd laborers who might come to
take the placu of strikers or otherwise in

was loaded utboth ends. "
