but They Had a Brief Colloquy
Relation to Their Tungled Affairs.
New Lawyer for the Woman.
Cleveland, 0., Dec. 15.—Mrs. Chad
wick's first day in the county jail was
a busy one for her. She received
several visits from her attorneys, held
long conferences with them, conversed
with newspaper men and for fifteen
minutes stood face to face with Pres
ident Beckwith of the Oberlin Bank,
who has come to such great trouble
through his financial transactions with
The meeting was dramatic. The aged
hanker, who had been for hours before
the county grand jury, went to the of
fice of Sheriff Barry this afternoon and
asked if he might see Mrs. Chadwick.
The sheriff readily consented and Mrs.
Chadwick was eager to meet him.
Accompanied by Mrs. Beckwith, who,
owing to her husband’s ill health, is
always by, his side, the aged banker
made his way slowly and feebly up
the long flights of iron stairs leading
to Mrs. Chadwick's cell. She met him
at the entrance of the corridor and
shook nunds with him cordially.
After some general conversation, Mr.
Beckwith referred to their business re
lations by saying, “Mrs. Chadwick,
you have ruined me, but I'm not sure
yet you are a fraud. I have stood by
you to my last dollar, and I do think
now that the time has come for you
to make known everything in relation
to this thing.”
Slie Hid n't Like It.
Beckwith’s voice betrayed deep emo
tion as he spoke, and he leaned heavily
on the arm of his wife, who was al
most compelled to support him, so
great was his physical weakness.
Mrs. Chadwick did not reply directly
to the words of Mr. Beckwith, but her
manner and the look on ht?r face were
not conciliatory. Seeing that she
would not answer Mr. Beckwith went
"T haVe VwayH told you that I did
not like it because you changed your
lawyers so often. Why don’t you get
a good one and stick to him?”
"Well,” said Mrs. Chadwick in re
ply, “I have reasons for that.”
"Have you heard from Judge Olcott
recently?” was Mr. Beckwith's ques
"Not since I left New York.” was
Mrs. Chadwick’s reply.
"Has he changed his mind?”
"No, he has the same belief that he

Mr. and Mrs. Beckwith then both
said that they hoped the matters con

one of the leading criminal lawyers of

this afternoon: "It is very difficult to

Three Persona Were Killed and Five
Charleston, W. Va., Dec. >ls.—Three
persons were killed and four others seri

Elk river, which connects East and
West Charleston. On the bridge when
it went down were six children on

feet in length, and was built in 1852.
It had been knowrr to be unsafe for

this bridge was cut by Gen. Wise when
he evacuated Charleston, the bridge at

TUG WENT DOWN.
A Deckhand Stock to the Whistle
Cord to the Last.
Norfolk. Va., Dec. 15.—The United
States naval tug Mohawk sank at her
moorings at the navy yard
to-day. One of her deck hands,
who stuck to the whistle
cord, blowing signals of distress until
the vessel went down, was rescued
with difficulty by other members of
the crew, who had sought safety on
the wharf when the tug was first dis
covered to be settling.
When the fireman of the Mohawk
went on deck this morning he noticed
that the boat was low in the water
and called the remainder of the tug's
complement. It was found that the
Mohawk was making water rapidly
and efforts were made to secure her
to the wharf and prevent her sink
ing. In the meanwhile the deck hand
held down the whistle and did not
let go until the boat had gone under.
No reason can be assigned for the
Admiral Harrington ordered a court
of inquiry to investigate the sinking
of the Mohawk. The court immediate
ly convened and heard testimony,
bringing out the above facts.
The opinion is held in some quar
ters that the sinking of the tug may
be more than an accident.

Places in Georgia He Is Anxious
to See—Yot on His Texas Trip, bnt
Later He XVIII Visit Them—Con
gressntnn Lester Extended the In
vitation of the Chamber of Com
By R. M. Larner.
Washington, Dec. 15.—" There are two
places in Georgia I propose to visit
some time while I am President, and
they are Roswell and Savannah. I
find it will be impossible for me to in
clude them in the trip I propose to
take to Texas next spring. It is my
present intention to go to Texas by
way of Louisville, and then out
through the Indian Territory.
“To visit all the cities in the South
that have so. kindly invited me to do
so would require a long time and would
necessitate a zig-zag route. It Is very
gratifying to me to receive these in
vitations and some time in the future
I hope to be able to accept some of
them. I have accepted an invitation
to be the guest of Senator Clay when
I visit Rosweli, but that will have to
be deferred until another time for the
reasons I have stated. I heartily ap
preciate the invitation coming from
the Savannah Chamber of Commerce,
and I will write a letter to that effect.”
This is the substance of President
Roosevelt’s statement to the commit
tee representing the Savannah Cham
ber of Commerce that called at the
White House this morning and formal
ly invited the President to be the
guest of the city of Savannah during
his contemplated tour of the South.
When Representative Lester delivered
the invitation, there were present in
the Cabinet room Secretary of War
Taft, Sen’ators Knox, Spooner and
Foraker, Representatives Sherman, of
New York: Bingham, of Pennsylvania;
Jackson, of Maryland, and several
other official visitors. In presenting the
invitation, Representative Lester as
sured the President that a cordial wel
come awaited him, and that he would
find Savannah one of the busiest and
most prosperous efftes in the country.
The interview was not protracted, ‘as
it was known before hand that the
President had concluded that he would
not visit Georgia when he goes to at
tend the reunion of his Rough Riders
regiment in San Antonio.
CRAZED BY DfUNK^
DEEDS WERE DESPERATE.
John Flowers Shot His Stepson anil
a Neighbor and Took Poison.
Tampa, Fla., Dec. 15. —Just recover
ing from a week’s drunk, Capt. John
Flowers, a wealthy resident of Palma
Sola, seized a shotgun and discharged
the contents of one barrel into the face
of his adopted son, James, aged 18, then
fired the other barrel at John Ray, a
neighbor, and realizing his rash deed,
went to his room and drained a bot
tle of laudanum, from which he died.
The stepson’s injuries are believed to
be fatal, one eye being shot out and
some of the shot entering the brain.
Ray was only slightly wounded.
Flowers is one of the best known
men in this section. The deed is at
tributed to delirium from drink.

STATEHODD VOTED BY
Was Close, However, and a Minority
Heport May Be Made.
Washington, Dec. 15.—The. Senate
Committee on Territories, by a vote
of 6 to 4, to-day authorized a favorable
report on the statehood bill providing
for the admission into the union of
Oklahoma and Indian Territory to be
come the state of Oklahoma and of
Arizona and New Mexico, to . become
the state of Arizona.
The bill is the one originating in the
House in the second session of the
Fifty-eighth Congress, but has been
amended materially by the Senate
Committee. The closeness of the vote
practically makes it certain that there
will be a minority report. The oppo
nents of the bill will obntest its pas
sage on the floor of the .Senate.
Those who voted to-day for the bill
were Senators Beveridge, Dillingham,
Nelson, Dick, Burnham and Kean, all
of whom are Republicans. Senator
Bard, Republican, voted against the
bill, together with Senators Bate and
Newlands, Democrats. The fourth
vote against the bill was that of Sen
ator Patterson, who was absent, but
recorded as voting. Senator Clark of
Arkansas was absent also.
The most important changes made in
the House bill are the insertion of
a clause prohibiting traffic In liquor
for a period of ten years in that part
of the proposed state of Oklahoma now
known as Indian Territory and the
elimination from the House bill of all
provisions with reference to suffrage,
except the following:
"That said state shall never enact
any law restricting or abridging the
right of suffrage on account of race,
color or previous condition of servi
tude.” As passed by the House, the
bill specifically permitted the proposed
states, if they so desired, to abridge
suffrage on account of sex. The pro
vision as to sex caused so many pro
tests from women suffragists, that the
committee struck out the provision on

Paris, Dec. 15.—The circumstances
attending the death of Deputy Syve

Dec. 8, are developing into a domestic
drama of startling magnitude.
It is established that the wife of M.

dame Menard, a daughter of Madame
Syveton by a former husband. Both
M. Menard and Matbune Syveton had
accused the deputy of these relations,
and a family council took place short
ly before M. Syveton’s death, at which
violent scenes were enacted, M. Me.

of the deputy to put a bullet through
his head and Madame Syveton an

This was on the eve of M. Syve

disclosure of his relations with his
wife’s daughter and thereupon com

HOWLED PREMIER DOWN.
The Parliament of Hungary Was In
Buda Pest, Dec. 15. —The parliamen
tary truce has been shortlived. The
session of the lower House of the Hun
garian Parliament to-day witnessed a
repetition of the turbulence which has
marked most of the recent sittings.
The members of the opposition em
phatically declined to recognize the
new rules of procedure, and greeted
Premier Tisza’s attempts to speak with
such a storm of Invectives and other
noisy interruptions that the sitting had
to be suspended repeatedly.
Premier Tisza, during a momentary
lull, got In a few sentences, declaring
that it was Incumbent on Parliament
to stop this obstruction. At this point
the storm broke out afresh. The dep
uties rushed across the floor in great
disorder, amid which a Liberal deputy
was heard to shout: “Obstruction must
be driven out with whips.’’
Yells of rage greeted the threat and
continued until the vice president sus
pended the sitting. Shortly after the
resumption, the sitting had to be again
suspended In consequence of a renewal
of the tumult.
At a third attempt to continue busi
ness the government, by a majority of
76, managed to carry a motion sum
moning Deputy Lengyot to appear be
fore the Committee on Privilege for
disorderly conduct In the House, but
when Premier Tisza again rose to
speak he was once more howled down.
Whistles and mouth organs were
requisitioned and added to the deaf
ening din occasioned by the slamming
of desks and the shouting of the depu
ties, the whole opposition chanting in
chorus “Resign; resign."
With folded arm* the Premier stood
for a full half hour. Each time he
opened his mouth demoniacal shouts
drowned his voice. Finally the Pre
mier was obliged to desist and the
sitting was suspended for the third
