In the affair. To a representative of the

a report upon Niagara. He has made a
preliminary examination and points out that
supposing we had used our tanks for shiftIng -

to tbe weight of a 100-pound boy on deck

how absurd the whole contention Is. "

WASHINGTON , Oct. 25. The expert
commission which was appointed by direc
tion of congress to visit the seal Islands
and make a scientific condition of the seal
herds of the Northern Pacific and Bering
sea has returned to this country and the
report Is now nearly complete , awaiting
only some of the figures showing the catcli
of pelagic sealers this last season. The
United States commissioners , Messrs. Jor
dan , Lucas and Stejenger , were accompanied
by a British commission , composed of
Messrs. D'Arcy. Thompson and Maccoun.
While these gentlemen , pursued their In
quiries In company and frequently com
pared notes , the two commissions will make
Independent reports to their respective gov
ernments , and there can be no joint action.
On one point of the utmost Importance
both sets of commissions appear to be In
agreement namely : that without reference
to the cause which has brought the
seal herds to the present alarmingly de
pleted condition , the further operations of
pelagic sealers will prove disastrous and
threaten to exterminate the seals. This Is
a most important concession on the part
of the British , as in the correspondence
which led up to the reference of the ques
tion to there expert commissioners. Lord
Salisbury's position has been that the seal
pirates inflicted little or no damage upou
the herds , as compared with the losses sus
tained through the annual killing of seals
on the Prlbyloff Islands by the North
American Soil company. It Is true
that the Canadian and British experts were
Inclined to the belief that the present con
dition of the herds was In a large measure
chargeable to the operations of the seal
companies In 1869 and prior years , when
they were permitted to kill as many as
100,000 seals annually on the Islands. An
the commissions will report annually , the
nature of the remedy to be recommended
cannot be known.
The commission for America would favor
a total suspension of pelagic scaling , If pon-
slblc , and while It Is hardly probable that
the British would be willing to concede
this much. It is believed that they will be
disposed to recommend further restrictions
upon pelagic sealing , cither by extending
the boundaries of the closed ocean , length
ening the close seasou , or both , perhaps.
The Russian and Japanese governments ,
having seals of their own to protect , nre
Interesting themselves on our side of the
CMC.The commission visited the Ruesian Com
mander Islands , as well as the Japanese Is
lands , In the pursuit of their inquiry. A
Russian representative Is already In the
United States to follow up the matter , and
with the active co-operation of these gov
ernments In our Interests , It Is hoped the
British will be disposed to consent to
further restrictive measures , particularly
as tbo time Is now ripe owing tb the almost
total failure of the pelagic sealers to make
paying catches the past summer.
MX Uemiernte Men Unit Their Cell *
Suddenly- I.oulMvlllr.
LOUISVILLE , Ocu. 25. A daring jail de
livery was perpetrated tonight at the county
Jail shortly after 5:30 : o'clock and six des
perate prisoners made their escape. The
delivery was .supposed to be a wholesale
one , In which every prisoner confined on
the third floor of the old jail was to get
out , but tbo watchfulness of the turnkeys
prevented this and only six men escaped.
The men who got out arc :
Jake Brill , convicted counterfeiter , hav
ing a sentence of six years to serve ; Harry ,
Brooks , convicted of robbing a postofllcu
and having a sentence of four years to
serve ; Tom McKcnzle. charged with house
breaking and having had no trial ; William
McKeiizle. charged with house breaking ana
awaiting trial ; Tom Kelley. charged with
house breaking and awaiting ila s
Satcrlcc , charged with cow stealing and
awaiting trial.
All ore white and considered desperate
prlcontT3 and who would hctiltato at nothing.
They gained their liberty by scraping the
mortar from the bricks in cell No. 5 , letting
the bricks fall Into the Interior of the cell
and in this manner they got a hole large
enough for them to climb through. One at
a ttmo they made their way out and
climbed upon the roof. Then by means of a
short rope , they let themselves down Into
a narrow alley between the wall of the
jallyard and an abutment of the new jail ,
and escaped. None of the escaped prisoners
had been captured up to midnight. This Is
the second jail delivery In Louisville with
in the last year , seven prisoners making
their escape Christmas day.

The first named , A. S. Carter , was an In-
portant witness and all the others were
brought hero by one side or the other for
the purpose of testifying to the general rep
utation of Carter. The witnesses were here
at various times during the trial. One
party of them came In a special car from
Omaha , and a special train was run from
here to Delnur In order that tiny might
return home as soon as possible' :
The case Itself Is of much more than or
dinary moment and worthy of extended
notice. In the month of August , 1S % , there
died here , after an Illness of some -weeks ,
Matt WaUon , a wealthy old bachelor who
for forty years had been a well known
money lender of Maquoketa. His estate
was valued at fully $300,000 , the greater
part of which was represented by some
COO mortgages.
Ho left no will and there being no near
relatives , It was supposed the property
would go tu his only sister , Mrs. Julia A.
Rlcharson of Johnson's Creek , N. Y. , and
some fourteen nephews and nieces. It was
but a short time after his death that there
arose a rumor to the effect that there was
an * Illegitimate son in existence and soon
afterwards George Nlles Watson appeared
hero and claimed the whole estate as tbe
Illegitimate son of the dead man.
It appears that while Matt was a boarder
at the Dccl er bouse during 1SC.S and 18G9 ,
he became unduly Intimate with one uf the
Blrla working there Mary Jonis by name.
She was db-iharged from the hotel during
the summer of 1SI9. ( She had no friends
or relatives tLcrc and was finally taken to
the county poor house near Andrew. While
there. ' and or the 20th day of December.
1SC9. she rove birth to the child that has
now grown to manhood and appears as the
claimant in tbe case.
The followinr March tbe child was adopted
by Sir. and Mrs. TTJebrge Nlles. proprietor *
of the Decker house. It Is claimed that at
this particular time Watson entered into c
contract with Mrs. Nlles wherein he agreed
to provide for the rearing and education ot
tbo child. If she would adopt It , and also
stating that he was the father of the child.
The Nlles family afterwards removed from
here to Kansas , living at Abilene last. The
child here grew up and his foster mother
died when lie was 18 yctrs of age. A year
afterwards he became possessed of a desire
for different scenes and then enlisted In the
Seventh United States cavalry. He re
mained there for five years , part of the time
being a rergeant. When bis time there ex
pired he rc-enlistcd In the Eighteenth In
fantry , remaining there until discharged
last year. During bis army life ho partici
pated in the quelling of a number of Indian
uprlslngs udttllniL.thM ' of the Sioux in
Dikota. ' - ,
It Is necessary that it be proven"jit
the dead man recognized him as his son In
such a way as to be general and open ; that
being done he will receive the whole es
tate of J300 000. Many witnesses have testi
fied to such recognition , but the alleged con
tract by Watson , In which he recognized the
child as his son , could not be produced
Neither could they find any trace of Mary
Jores , the mother of the boy. The whole
tlmo since the death of Watson In August ,
1S95 , and up to the present trial has been
spent by both sides In a laborious search for
Although the case had been on the docket
for some months it was not brought to trial
until September 1. Judge C. M , Waterman
called a special term of court to hear the
Court has now lasted nearly eight weeks
and about 400 witnesses have been ex
amined from seven various statc-s , namely :
California , Tennessee , Kansas , Louisiana ,
Iowa , Nebraska and Minnesota. Similar par
ties of witnesses to those from Omaha were
brought from Aledo , III. , Odebolt and Dav
enport , la. There are fifteen lawyers em
ployed In the case , among whom are Joe
R. Lane of Davenport , W. I. Hayes , ex-con
gressman , and L. A. Ellis , state senator.
The arguments In the ease were limited by
the court to four days.
The vast volume of testimony In the case ,
coming a ; It docs from all directions , has
been procured at vast expense , estimated at
not less than { 15,000. In addition to this the
attorneys' fees will be somewhere from
* 5.000 to $100,000.
Judge Waterman will file his decision as
soon as pccslblc and at the name time do
justice to the case. Each side affirms Its
resolution to carry the matter to the su
preme court in case of defeat In this court.

as well as the great house of RothnchllUs.
These 'Gentlemen find the street railways
of Europe where those of America were ten

to make a great deal ot money by bring

motive power on a Paris railroad for the

Mitt. Betsy R. Hobbs was found dead. She
lived alone about one and a half miles
from Efflngham. N. H. When found the
houto was burning and her body WM half
cremated. The mjstery was cleared yester
day by the confession of Charles Savage.
Ho accuses Frank J. Palmer of the murder.
A coroner's jury has brought In a verdict
of murder In the first degree. Savage was
held as a witness. Palmer is 16 jeara old
and lives at West Parsonficld. Savage Is
20 years of age. At the Inquest Charles
Savcge unflinchingly withstood half an hour's
cross-examination , but at last tbe coroner
discovered weakness and he persistently
questioned him till he finally succumbed and
related a tale Implicating himself and Frank
Palmer In the murder and attempted crema
tion of Mrt. lobbs.
He and Palmer , he caia , had been drink
ing together the day before the tragedy.
Monday morning Savage took his breech-
loading shotgun to go shooting. They called
at Mrs. Hobbs' . Savage left Palmer In the
house while he wentto the woodshed on
an errand. While there be heard the re
port of n gun and Boon afterward found
Mrs. Hobbs bleeding upon the * doorstep.
Palmer soon appeared and with an oath de
clared that now he had squared the grudge
he owed her for pulling $3 out of him In
payment for the glass he broke In her house
three years ago. Palmer asked Savage to
help him carry the body into the house.
Ho rays he was so frightened he did not
realize what he was doing , but they got
tbe body Into tbe bouse. Savage then took
to the woods , being shortly overtaken by
Palmer , who declared that nobody would
ever know what happened , for be had set
fire to the houec.
HecUlon of the Supreme Court of Can

BOSTON , Oct. 25. A special to the Jour
nal from Gloucester. Mass. , says : News
4ias Just been received here of an Important
decision" Iff the supreme court of Canada
which may result lli tha repayment of all
license fees paid by American fisntrcucn
since the abrogation , of the treaty of Wash
ington for licenses Issued under the modus
Vivendi. The action was brought before
tbo court many years ago for the purpose
of defining tbe relative rates and settling
rival claims of tbe Canadian provinces on
one band , and the Dominion government on
the other , and has resulted In a victory
for the former. The claim of the provinces
upon every point raised Is approved except
that the Dominion Is declared In control of
harbors. In the case of harbors the Do
minion is declared to have the right of con
trolling its fishing , but it has no power
to grant a local lease In any part of the
country , and in the tidal waters neithe-r
the Dominion nor any province has power to
restrict public rights of fUhlug save by
general legislation , except in a very few
particulars. Therefore , the present Do
minion fishery act under which
licence fees are exacted from American
fishermen is Illegal and must be withdrawn.
Thefcc licenses , it is estimated , amount to
over $70,000 a year.

It seems from the ctatcments by men
employed on the line that the accident was
flue to the ovcralgh * of one of the oldest
engineers on this d vision of the 'Frisco , .
Joseph Drydtn , who was In charge of tliB
excursion train.
The colll.Ion occurred bctnccn the second
section of an excursion train bound west
mid the. 'Frisco Valley Park accommoda
tion. The excursion crew should have re
mained at Spring Park for orders and let
have let the accommodation train pass.
The excursion train was the second section
of a special bound for St. James. Mo. , 100
miles west of St. Louis , , where the Mis
souri Home for Aged Veterans was dedi
cated today under the auspices of the Grand
Army of the Republic and Woman's Relief
The first section had gone through safely
and the second , which consisted of eleven
coaches heavily laden with Grand Army
men and their wives and children , left St.
Louis about 0 o'clock.
According to J. D. Dlshman , the tele
graph operator and station agent at Sprinff
park , It should have stopped at that place
for orders. Instead of doing so , the sec
tion passed by the Elation , and soon after
met the accommodation coming down grade
rt full speed. Engineer Hohl of the ac
commodation was not aware that tbo sec-
oiui bfctloti was on the road , and lu trying
to make the switch at Klrkwood , crashed
into the Ill-fated train in a cut just thir
teen miles from the St. Louis Union sta
tion. Thert was only one car , a combina
tion baggage and ctuch , on Engineer Hohl's
train , but the colln. . was terrific , both
engines being demolished. & ? " number of
the cars telescoped. The wiwti ' s
plied high on the track , and above the
sound of escaping steam could be heard the
cries of the frightened and Injured passen
gers.Next to the engine of the excursion train
was the ccmmlEsary car filled with refresh
ments. Barney McKcnna was In charge of
the edibles and with him was his 14-year-old
daughter , Maud. Both were- Instantly killed ,
being scalded and crushed. A number of
passengers , mostly young men , were grouped
around the temporary counter eating and ,
drinking. Almost all were either killed
or Injured. This and the next car , In
which were seventy passengers , Buffered
tbeorst damage and most of the killed and
Injured were taken from them , Engineer
Hohl of th'j accommodation , which was run
ning on time , was killed and his fireman.
Frank Hatler , badly Injured.
"I cannot see how It could have occurred , "
said an official of the road tonight , "but
Engineer Dryden seems to have entirely
forgotten about No. 12 , tbo accommoda
tion train. Het Is one of tbo best engineers
of the road , and the overlooking of the
train which was traveling toward him Is
all the more remarkable , for the reason that
ho was for a tlmo Its engineer , and was ,
therefore , perfectly familiar with Its
schedule. But the train seems to have
dropped completely out of bis recollection.
He failed to take the xtdlng , and bis con
ductor , George Atwood , who was taking
tickets failed to notice tbe fact.
The accommodation train contlsted of an
engine , tender , baggage car and two
coaches , In which there were only five pas
sengers. The engine and tender was
wrecked , but the other three cars were not
damaged. It Is duo to the lightness of this
train that the accident was not worse than
It was , "
Immediately after the wreck occurred people
ple began to come In from all directions , on
wheels , In buggies , wagons and on foot , and
within an hour after the accident thousand !
could be seen grouped around the pile ot
debris. No wrecking train was available ,
but everybody turned to and In a short time
had reicued the Injured and taken out the
Doctors , from surrounding towns hurried
to the i-ccne and rendered what assistance
they could to the suffering , who were trans
ported to places of xafety. All tbe medical
resources of St. Louis were placed at the
disposal of the 'Frisco as soon as the news
of the accident reached the city. Dr. Stark-
lolf. the city physician , Immediately set
out for thu scene of tbe wreck with a corps
of assistants and ambulances , but owing to
the delay experienced In getting to tbo
wreck their sMTicrK were not needed.
J. D. Dltlitnan , the. station agent at Spring
park , stated to a reporter that had tbe ex
cursion train stopped at Spring park f jr or
ders , as It ishould have done , the accident
would have been averted. He said ho got
a message from Valley park when tbe ac
commodation train left there and he added
that had the excursion train stopped ho
would have bad It pull Into tbe switch until
the accommodation parsed. DUhman eald
that ho was In his office when the excursion
I passed at a high rate of speed. He ualJ
' that he knew that the trains would comu
I together but that bo was pouerleas to avert
tbo accident.
