EX-SENATOR JOKES’ PLIGHT.
Formerly Rich and Generous, He Now
Lacks Even a Home.
From the Few York World.
Detroit, Nov. 28. Since the expiration
Of his term of office , x Senator Jones, of
Florida, has not been prominently before
the people of the country. Up to that time
he drew unpleasant notoriety upon himself,
but few men could have more quietly or
more stubbornly submitted to the adverse
criticism to which he was subjected. He
had suddenly left his place in the Senate,
where he had acquirer! an enviable reputa
tion because ot his statesmanship, his
ability as a constitutional lawyer and
his honesty. He came to Detroit three
years ago, upon invitation of W. G. Thomp
son, to make a visit which lias grown into a
permanent stay. Much was at iirst made of
him. He was genial, sociable, able and
possessed of sufficient means to live ex
jiensively. With those means he was ever
ready to aid the numerous calls of charity,
and he very soon became identified withtfio
current local movements of men and affairs.
He occupied luxurious apartments at the
Russell House, sought out the kindred spirits
of the city and made desirable acquaiut
nces all over the city.
Among these was Miss Clotilde Palms, a
young lady of great wealth, pleasing man
ners, and the highest position socially. Far
from being a beauty, she nevertheless was
found by ex-Senator Jones to be extremely
attractive, and he at once became her
avowed suitor. He was persistent, but it is
believed that the lady never for a moment
gave him a serious thought, and the long
siege came to an inglorious end. It is under
stood that he thinks it was through no
fault of his own or prejudice on the part of
Miss Palms that he did not succeed in this,
probably his last love affair. But an ex
planation of why ho failed, or of why he
refused to return, either to Washington or
to Florida, or to leave Detroit at all, is
necessarily somewhat vague, because the
reasons at which he hints are uncertain and
apparently based upon a foundation of little
fact and much imagination.
He believes himself the victim of a con
spiracy within the Democratic party. This
combination against him involves states
men, politicians and newspapers. It fol
lowed him through a tour of Euro[ie, was
made chiefly manifest at the banquet given
him by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, dogged
his official life at Washington, thwarted his
purposes, maligned his character and was a
menace to his life. This, in brief, has been
the ex-Senator’s bete noir. He has hinted
at assassination if he went home, has seen
malice in items of the Eastern press that
seemed perfectly innocent to all others, and
has traced the evidences of comspiracy
among Legislative members of their pre
scribed course of public duty. He has
vowed that he will “down' 1 all this opposi
tion, and with this vow is linked another—
that he will remain in Detroit until that
purpose is accomplished.
At one time his belief that he was the vic
tim of a conspiracy found vent in some re
markable letters written to his friends here.
They are said to have been violent to an as
tonishing degree. Whatever may have been
their character, it was from them that then
started the iirst whisperings of lack of faith
in his mental condition. On this point it is
impossible to speak accurately as yet. In
conversation on general subjects the ex-
Senator seems not only sane, but to have
unusually good sense and a large fflhd of ac
curate information. In a recent conversa
tion with a reporter on the subject of yellow
fever he showed a remarkable memory, as
well as full knowledge and a power of al
most fascinating description. When ex-Sena
tor Jones came to Detroit he had some
ready money. His integrity had stood firm
against the temptations held out to him as
a Senator of commanding position and in
fluence or he would have had more. His in
come ceased with his term of office, and the
heavy expenses he had assumed when com
ing to this city were not curtailed. He had
contributed, as already stated, to publie
charities with liberality, and had made
presents to some of his newly acquired
friends >n Detroit. With a room costing
him $4 a day at the Russell House, one son,
and sometimes two staying here with him
at his expense, a serious inroad was made
upon his limited means.
His bill at the Russell House reached an
amount that called for settlement, and a
temporary compromise was effected by
locking the ex-Senator's room against him.
He quietly accepted the situation, and re
moved to the Griswold, his son accompany
ing him. The same unpleasantness was in
time encountered there. There was a bill
of $l5O, and no money forthcoming in pay
ment. Again the door of his room was
locked. This time the Senator’s resources
did not serve him so good a purpose. He
remained at the Griswold, and, barred from
his room, availed himself of a lounge in the
hallway. Here the night clerks took pity
upon him, and in passing, would throw a
blanket over him and allow him the best
rest obtainable. His son usually spent these
nights, which brought no fixed abiding
place, with some of his young com
panions at their rooms. Finally Detective
O’Neil, a friend of the ex-Senator, finding
him asleep in the Griswold House office,
asked him if he had been without sleep the
night before. Jones said that he had and
readily accepted an invitation to Mr.
O’Neill’s house. This was three weeks ago
and the ex-Senator and his son are still par
takers of O’Niel's hospitality, but have re
ceived a suggestion that his means will not
permit a long continuance of this arrange
ment. The Senator usually takes from
three to four meals a day at "Roos’ restau
rant, and a bill of $250 is registered there
against him, which sympathy and a reluct
ance to deny so distinguished a patron have
allowed to “grow with time and the ex-
Senator’s appetite. The Russell House
news stand has a little account of $25 with
the ex-Senator, and other dealers in such
articles as he wants are Ins creditors.
All this serves to suggest Jones’ condition
rather thnn to reflect upon his honesty. His
actione are not those natural to a man of his
intelligence, native ability aun powers. His
friends realize this, and a son from Wash
ington is now here to see if something can
not be done to induce the father to leave
Detroit and engage actively in the work for
which ho is fitted. There is a general opin
son that he is a monomaniac on the one
subject of the conspiracy againsj him. No
one is able to talk with or advise him on the
subject of his financial difficulties or of en
gaging him in the practice of his profession,
lie simply walks away, and will have noth
ing to say. He declares that he has saved
the people of the country millions of dollars,
has been liberal since coming to Detroit,
and that the peeple owe him a living, which
he seems bound to have regardless of the
opinions it may create and the
comment which it excites. He is a regular
attendant at mass and a strict observer of
other religious duties, but. aside from that,
the whole course of his life seems to conform
with the delusion which threatens his life.
When ex-Senator Jones’ circumstances
first liecame straitened he could have bor
rowed all the money he wanted. He did
get frequent loans and could, perhaps, get
them now by personal application. But
qne predominating characteristic is his
high spirit, and instead of going frankly to
his friends and stating his case, he has sent
requests by messengers, until finally these
ceased to have the desired effect. He is a
man that a friend and adviser cannot talk
to. When told by Detective O’Neil that ho
could get money to pay his debts and take
him home if he would see his friends, he re
plied: “Let them come to me.’’ Senator
Jones claims to have a fine house in Florida
which is unencumbered, but he has never
taken any steps to assist himself by sacrific
A meeting of his two sons and a few
prominent men has been hold to discuss tho
method of procedure in his case. The pres
ence in Detroit of the ex-Senator’s youngest
son was unknown to the father till to-aay.
He arrived here yesterday. It is possiblo
that if he persists in his refusal to go home,
application may be made to the courts by
las friends Ihr the appointment of a com
mission of inquiry.
WHAT HIS DELUSION IS.
Recently ex-Senator Jones opened his
heart on the subject of leaving Washington
before his term expired, and without so
much as hinting this time at any conspiracy
gave his reasons iu the most positive terms
possible anil with an earnestness that left no
doubt whatever of his sincerity. Mr. Jones
recited, with some show of bitterness, that
while his record iu the Senate was clean,
while he never had accepted a bribe, but
had oil the contrary, saved the country
"millions of dollars,” some of his compan
ions, with no greater opportunities, lm<l be
come rich by allowing monopolies to flourish
where timely legislation would have cut
Coming then directly to the matter of his
leaving Washington the second time, in
July, 1885, the ex-Senator said he did so
solely because he lielieved an investigation
into a certain matter was coming, in which
some of his friends had been dishonestly in
terested.- It was certain that if an investi
gation was begun he would te called as a
witness, and, knowing what he did and be
ing unable to give false testimony, even to
save the reputations of friends, he chose in
stead to leave Washington till the squall
should blow over. Then, however, came
the newspaper comments because of his ab
sence, and he the more easily cultivated a
feeling of resentment and stubbornness be
cause about the samt time he became con
vinced of the existence of what he has called
the conspiracy to ruin hi in.
“I don’t yet just know what we will do
with father,” John Jones, the ex-Senator’s
second son, said this evening. “I am very
much afraid that he can never be persuaded
to quietly leave Detroit. He is very stub
born on this point.”
“Do you consider his mind affected?”
“I hardly know what to think. It is true
that father was for a time partially insane,
but that was always regarded as the result
of a sabre wound and not hereditary.
Father has always been in excellent health.
lam in sore straits regarding the proper
thing to be done in the matter. ”
Ex-Senator Jones was seen in the office of
the Griswold House late this afternoon. He
entered the office with firm tread, twirling
his cane in the manner which has grown
habitual to him. His conversation is en
tirely rational and he does not seem to ma
terially differ, except in the matter of attire,
from his appearance in his days of pros
“The day is not far distant,” he said, lead
ing the way to a retired seat, “when the
newspapers will bitterly regret this attack
upon me. It has always been the way of
the world to attack everything that is good
and everything that it cannot understand.
If I had used the advantages offered by my
seat in the Senate to become a rich man, no
one would have had a word to say against
me to-dav; but that I did not do. I went
into the Senate a poor man and came out of
it a poorer one, but it will all come right
some day. lam a firm believer in the doc
trine that all things eventually find the
proper level. Everything that I have been
—and I leave my official record to speak for
itself—was accomplished by my own exer
“I landed in this country from Ireland
with my widowed mother, away back in
the forties, when I was but twelve years of
age. We were almost entirely without
means. Chance took us to Florida, where I
started in to make a man of myself and be
come somebody in the world. In all my
previous life I had not to exceed a year and
a half of schooling. During those early
years in Florida I worked like the veriest
slave by day, and studied by the light of a
pine knot or tallow dip far into the nights.
In this way I fitted myself for the bar. to
which I was admitted in 1858. The records
of my legal career are scattered all over
Florida, and lap over into several other
States. I had to fight against race preju
dices, and was entirely without backing or
influence, but I climbed to the very pinnacle
of legal distinction before entering upon a
political career. I was particularly versed
in all matters pertaining to constitutional
law, and was quite universally regarded as
an authority upon that subject.
“My political career began with being
elected to the Legislature. I was a member
of the Legislature which sent me to the
Senate in 1874. Since that time my career
has been national property. It may be that
I have endowed the office of Senator with
high and holy qualities which it does not
rightfully possess, but I entered the Senate
Chamber with reverent tread, and never
quite lost my veneration for it. I lost sight
of all selfish ambitions and tried to give my
life and my best efforts to my country.
That is why I come forth both poor and
pure. I wish it understood,” and the eyes
of the speaker snapped with enthusiam,
“that I still have friends in Florida. Had I
chosen to return to the Senate I could readily
have done so.”
“And your plans for the future?”
Mr. Jones rose slowly and with much dig
nity to his feet. “That, sir, is a subject
upon which I will not talk. I defy the pa
pers which have tried to vilify me,” and he
walked quickly and firmly out of the hotel.
Although he was reported to be penniless on
Tuesday night, he was seen to have a large
roll of bills in his possession last evening,
the presumption being that the published
articles had called some friend to his relief.
William H. Hughes, of the Michigan
Catholic, met Senator Jones to-day and en
deavored to counsel him regarding his pres
ent course and future prospects. “Don’t
you advise me, sir,” commanded the Sena
tor. “Neither you nor your friends must
direct my private affairs. They have enough
to do in looking after their own. I know
what they will never know until I choose to
divulge it. When the proper time conies I
will make such disclosures as will electrify
Detroit, t he State of Michigan and the whole
United States. It will make every hair on
ycur head stand, Mr. Hughes.”
“If you knew anything so startling you
would have told it long ago.”
“Would I? That’s your opinion, sir. I
have held my peace for three years, and I
will not speak until the full time has come.
Then I will show myself the man for the
emergency. Every enemy of mine will be
brought to a terrible accounting. These
newspapers that are now discussing me as a
private citizen will'be made to answer for
every word. The reckoning will cotne.”
A subscription paper for his benefit is be
ing circulated among his friends. Jones’
son John had another interview with his
father to-day. To all entreaty the ex-Sena
tor was deaf. “I will stay right here in
Detroit until I vindicate myself and tri
umph over my enemies,” was the sum of
the old man’s answer.
“What means do you intend to employ to
“That is my own business.” And here
the interview elided. A friend of Mr. Jones
says the latter believes that Janies G.
Blaine was once at the head of the con
smiracy against him. To get even with him
Jones was in the habit at one time of send
ing Blaine newspapers with anti-Jones com
ment in them, and of writing on the margin
“What do you think of this, you villain?”
The general feeling among those who know
all the facts is that matters in Jones’ case
have reached a crisis.

All of which, a little observation has con
vincetkme, is true. New York is a matinee
city, and a matinee audience could lie told
from an evening gathering if you were to
meet them in the Fiji Islands. Your mati
nee people, in the first place, are almost all
of them feminine. In the second place they
are all in tailors’ gowns.
One goes to the theatre in the evening to
see dress. In the afternoon there is none to
see. You can’t tell the Fifth avenue belles
in the boxes, so far as gowns go, trom the
East side shop girls who look down from the
gallery. Evening dress was never so vari
ous, daylight toilets were never so uniform
before. Slender figure, clean cut face,
bright eyes, trim fitted dark gown, chic
braided jacket, hangs less fluffily volumin
ous than last year, dark gloves, character

how curiously out of place, as if they lmd
strayed in from last year, those two girls in
the balcony look who have added to the
well-bred, faultlessly monotonous dress de
corum of the theatre a garden oi chrysan
themums each, growing in the lapels of
their tailor coats. A matinee is curiously
restrained, cautiously dignified as to its
dress, but womeu who have been shopping

with books on their arm and the pencil
marks not washed off their cuffs, and people
who want to indulge more or less opeuly in
To the actor the matinee is a black ter
ror. He is painfully conscious of the absence
of the critics, the literati; there are no
heavy swells, masculine or ft minine, no fa
miliar faces, nothing brilliant to catch the
eye in the house.
The actress doesn’t hold the afternoon per
formance in quite such horror, because she
is shrewd enough to know that the cohorts
of hoarding school misses from out of lown
who have dreamed all the week of the foot
lights, who adore Modjeska’s grace and
Rose Coghlan’s coquetish sauciness and
Annie Pixley’s diamonds and Mrs. Potter’s
gowns; to whom the glitter of paste is the
shine of old mine jewels, and whose hearts
swells with admiration or burst with envy
at the froufrou of silks, the tracery of laces
or the art of make up that seems nature’s
own stamp of beauty to them; the actresses
feel that no audience can be gathered that

Her manager once said to me, with a
tbat-settles-it air which told volumes, that
Mrs. Langtry was tne best matinee attrac
tion in the country. Very likely he told the
truth, for the Lily knows how to wear her
gowns. Mrs. Potter is going to be a mat
inee success, and it is there, if anywhere,
that her pretty face and fetching gowns
will tell. It is gowns that tell the story.
“What a beautiful woman Agnes Booth is;
I could look at her forever!” exclaimed a
woman in front of me the other afternoon.
Mrs. Booth is a very clever actress, of won
derful intelligence, but it is not her proud,
almost coldly haughty face that has made
her “Nina Ralston” famous, it is her rich
gowns. If Manager Palmer had staged
“Jim the Penman” less extravagantly he
would have lost money by his economy, and
it would have been his matinee audience
that suffered most. People who don’t

Women who can dress magnificently are
the best matinee attractions. Among men
there has never been a successor to Montague.
The alleged feminine worship of hand
some actors is mostly stuff and nonsense,
but what little truth there is in it applies to
the schoolgirl contingent of tho matinees.
Montague was horribly bored bv women,
but they worshiped him, and Wallaek's
was never the same after he died. There
isn’t a reigning favorite now. Dixey got a
deal of adoration last season, but women
have tired of “Adonis.” Handsome Bob
Hilliard held a good many hearts in his
hand, till the feminine world somewhat
slowly tumbled to the fact that both he and
Dixey are married and devoted to their
wives; since when the owners of the offered
hearts have reclaimed their property. Man
tell was a god in the old days when he
played “Fedora,” but that idolatry has
waned. Bellew has made sad havoc, but
Bellew is married and marriage is a sad de
stroyer of romance. Richard Mansfield

There's that delightful absurdity all about
“Parthenia” anil “Ingomar.” The critics
all fall foul cf it as an antiquated, histrionic
chestnut, but it will catch a matinee any
afternoon, because it appeals to the femin
ine heart to see a slender woman make a big
burly Goth get his hair cut and do as she
pleases generally. The London papers
cracked ponderous jokes at Mary Anderson’s
expense when she chose that play for her
English debut, but it took with English
women, it would he safe to wager.
The s[X)Ctacular doesn't take at a matinee.
Women don’t admire their own sex, as a
rule, in tights, and would like Loie Fuller,
for instance, much better in gown. The
country contingent, with some men in it,
which makes up the rest of an afternoon
audience, goes to the standard attraction,
and the spectacle has to look on the evening
for its big houses.
A matinee audience is less sophisticated
than an evening house and it always enjoys
itself. The student of human nature en
joys the audience if there is nothing divert
ing on the stage.
