IS not only a distressing complaint, of
itself, but, by causing tho blood to
become depraved and the system en

maladies. That Aycr's Sursnparllla

when complicated with Liver Complaint,
Is proved by tho following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Drockway
Centre, Mich.:
"Liver complaint and Indigestion

ending my existence. For more than
four year I suffered untold agon v, was
reduced nlmost to a skeleton, and fiaidlv

kinds of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
all Within the time mentioned several
rihysiciiins treated me without giving re
let. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent Rood u ul 11 I commenced
tho use of Ayer's Sarsoparilla, which
has produced wondeiful results. Soon
after commencing to take tho Sarsapa

The Theory of the I'nllcc.
I'ni.NCKTo.v, Ont., JInrch 11. J. llet;lnnld
Blrchell must answer for the murder of
Frederick C. Uenwell. Tho coroner's Jury,
after considering all tho testimony, 1ms so
decided. They rendered a verdict finding
that Bemvell camo to his death at the hnuds
of Blrchell, and they Implicated Blrchell's
wlfeaghavlnBgullty knowledgeof thocrlme
after its commission. After n lengthy con
sultation tho following verdict waaagreod
Verdict of the Coroner' Jury.
"We find that the said P. C. Uenwell camo
to his death by two pistol shots fired Into his
head from behind, one at or near the nape
of the neck and the other a little behind nnd
above tho left ear, either one of which was
1 '
suftlclent to causo death, and your jurors
have reason to believe, and do believe, that
sold shots were fired by the hand of Ileal
nald Blrchell, alias Somerset, with deliber
ate purpose, wilfully and feloniously, to
commit murder, on or about the 17th of
February, IS), nnd we nre of opinion that
Caroline Blrchell, tho wife of snld Reginald
Blrchell, was accessory to tho murder after
tho fact,"
Mrs. Illrchcll's Position.
Thero wus very llttlo difference of'opinion
amoug tho jurors as to tho question of guilt,
the only question being whether or not a
verdict should be given in the absence of the
prisoners. Under tho law of Canada a wife
cannot be punished for shielding her hus
band, and therefore Mrs. Blrchell cannot be
mnde accessory after tho fact, in tho general
sense of the term.
Tho Hotly Kxhutneil.
When the inquest was resumed D. H.
Pelley, the young man who nccomrumied
Ilenwell and Blrchell to this country, was
taken to the grnvo of the murdered man,
where the body wnsexhumed. Ho recognized
tho dead man as Benwoll. After Pelley had
Identified tho body of his murdered com
panion he was put in tho witness box. Ho
again told the wonderful story of his asso
ciations with Birchell and Benwoll as he
told it at Niagara Falls.
Wore There Other Victims?
New and sensational developments are
cropping up in connection with the tragedy,
and the question now is whether there havo
not been at least two victims. Somo two or
three years agoayoung Englishman, Neville
II. Pickthall, came here, and about a year
ago purchased a farm six miles south of
Woodstock. About four months ago he
married the daughter of his minister. Feb.
10 last Pickthall raised n 1,000 on a mort
gage on his farm and left here, saying to his
wife: "I am going to double this money be
fore I come back." He was seen at Niagara
Falls that night, and then said ho was going
to Now York to meet his sister.
He Was Never Semi Again.
The testimony In the Birchell examination
showed that Pickthall reached New York
and thero met tho Birchells. Since thon no
trace of him has been found and no word
has boen received from him. His disopear
anco paused a stir af tlie tinie nnd tho police
aent descriptions of him all over the country.
The theory now is that he was enticed to
New York by Birchell with the expectation
of making a large sum of monoy, and that
ho was put out of the way for the money he
carried with him. A search of Blrchell's
buggoge will be mode for anything that
might give a clew to Plckthall's fato.
l'elloy's testimony, if true, shows conclu
sively that Mrs. Birchell aided and abetted
in the swindling of Pelley and the deceased,
whether she knew of the murder or not.
Bhe frequently mentioned the fictitious farm
to Pelley.
Jtlrptiull'e StrmiRn Career.
What is known of Blrchell's career Is not
at all to his crodit. It is said that he was
always a liar, always an adventurer. In
college ho loved to poso as the scion of some
great family. If caught in a lie be would
easily laugh it off. He made the acquaint
ance of the daughter of David Stephenson,
a traffic manager of the London and North
western railroad, and won her heart by his
dasliiug ways and taking lies. Ho said ho
was a great laud owner and stock raiser in
Canada. They were secretly married
against the father's wishes, who wished to
know moro about tho young man, nnd
sailed nway for Canada. And here, in tho
llttlo village of Woodstock, which they
reached In tho autumn of XS83, they began
to cut tho swell which made him Buch a
local celebrity.
Here He Was "Lord Soineraet."
Here be was Blrchell no longer, but (Somer
set, Lord Somerset, or nt least the son of
Lord. Somerset, with all the glumour of a
title about him. He was an exquisite in
every way. His linen was embroidered to
suit his runk. He even went in debt like n
lord, uml when bo left Woodstock there wero
many poignant memories in the shape of un
paid bills left behind him. His wife, a blue
eyed, light haired, pretty little blonde, wus
a fit companiou for one so high bred.
They left ot last and went back to Eng
land, and for a time lived with Mr. Stephen
son, who forgave his daughter for her secret
marriage. The girl told no tales out of
school, though it Is certain that by this tlm.i
she know her husband to be a rascal. Aud
meanwhile "Lord Somerset" set ubout some
ineansof recouping his exhausted exchequer.
In the course of time he fell in with Frtd
erick 0. Uenwell, of Cheltenham, England,
and Douglass Raymond Pelley, of Saffron
Waldon, Essex, and lurod them to Canada
as heretofore described in these dispatches.
The Theory of the I'ollce,
Birchell, his wife, Benwoll and Pelley
crossed the Atlantic together on the Oar
mania By the time they reached Buffalo
Palley had been blad 174 How much Bsu.
will was mulcted does not seam clear, al
though Blrchell Is said to have carefully ex
amlned the thirteen pieces of valuuble bag
gage the murdered man had with him. Birch,
ell also knew that Ilenwell had considerable
money with him. The party reached Buffalo
Feb. 10. The next day Blrchell and ilenwell
started for the mythical farm, leaving Mrs.
Blrchell and Pelley in Buffalo. Blrcholl re
turned alone that night aud said Ilonwf.l
bad gene further up the country looking for
desirable land. For the next few days Mr,
and Mrs. Birchell and Pelley remained at the
Falls, and during this time Blrchell acted so
suspiciously that Pelley feared ot his life,
I'elley's Wild Oonse Chase,
Ous day Blrchell said thut a message from
Beuwell to the Stafford house had said to
send all his baggage to the Fifth Avenuo
hotel, New York. Two daya later Blrchell
came Into the house aud saldt
"What do you think I have seen In the
paper In connection with that man fouud
murdered at Princeton. They have found a
cigar case marked V, C Benwoll."
It was arranged that Pelley should go to
New York and make Inquiries at tha Fifth
Avenue, He did so, but found uo clew. Re
turning to Clifton he found a coiiAabla on
the tteM of the Baldwin house who told him
Blrchell had Identified the body aud was
likely to bo arrested. Bo Pelley went dowu
to Magistral Hill and told but atorr. know.
ingatlne time tnat ho was supectod ot
complicity In Ibe murder.
The I'lllillnu if the llody.
The spot where Frederick Bonn ell was
murdered Is an uncanny thlckot set In tho
midst of swamps lu the llttlo hamlet of
Princeton. It Is desolato nnd fearful in Its
Isolatloa Until the rough cart track was
cut through tho tract in 1S88 the forest had
been deserted oven by tbo woodcutters for
yeArs. Several days after the murder the
body was discovered by two woodsmen.
When the body was found It was lying
nstrldo a rotten tree stump. The legs wero
partly crossed, while tho trunk itself bolf
rested, half hung over the stump. The head
was bent backward ngalmt the spine. ' Tho
eyes were closed, so was the mouth. The
right arm and hand hail been frozen Into a
clinched position of defiance, while the left
hung limp. The flesh was blue from oxposuro
to the cold. Thero wero two bullet holes in
the head.
How the Heed Wnn Done.
A very plausible theory is that Bonn oil
nnd his murderer were walking down tho
road, tho one before tho other. Tho mur
derer, when his opportunity was best, drew
out his revolver and fired two shots luto the
neck of his companion.
Ho must havo lieen hnrd upon his victim,
for tho powder from 0110 bullot, as it en
tered tho fide of the hoad, burned the oyo
nnd scorched it with tho powder. The other
bullet entered just below the base of the
brnln, squaro In the back.
Blrchell wus seen within five miles of the
spot on Monday, Feb. 17. Ho was seen to
lave the station at Kastwoodf Out., with
Frederick Benweli shortly before noon, nnd
Inter tho inir wero met walking together
along tho (lovernor's road lu tho direction
of Pi lucoton. When Blrchell wus next seen
it was towurd I o'clock in tho afternoon,
and ho was alone.
Condensed Report of l'roeeedlnga In Sen
ntu nnd Hnilsp.
Washington, March 7. In tho senate the
following public bulldiug bills wore pnssedt
Sterling, Ills., 50,000; Oakland, Cal , MOO,
000; Cheyenne, Wy. T., 150,000; Chester,
Pa., $100,001); Helena, M. T., 100,0 0. Tho
bill appropriating $500,000 for a building nt
Salt Lake City gave rise to debate, Mr.
Plumb dosiring to havo the appropriation
reduced to $100,000.
At 2 o'clock the bill went over and thn
educational bill was taken up. In response
to Inquiries, Mr. Blair said ho could not fix
n day for voting on tho bill. Several sena
tors were still to speak, among them Mr.
Evnrts, who was to conclude the debate.
In tho courso of his remarks on the bill Mr.
Blair said that any longer delay In dispos
ing of this matter would bo unjustifiable,
and ho would look upon It as n perpetual
abandonment of the effort to give national
aid to the schools of the country, The Re
publican party was pledged in its platform
to the passngo of tho bill, nnd if that pirty
failed to inako good its plcilgo that fact
would put an end to the pnrty. Like many
other mpn in this country, he owed no jio
lltical allegiance to a party thut lied.
Mr. Hale spoko in opposition to the bill.
It had been before tho senuto for eight yenrs,
nnd all tho time thore had been a rising tide
against it. In his state, Mr. Halo asserted,
the press and educators and clergymen wero
against tho bill, and the incrensod opposition
to it was only because obbervatlou nud
reason wero ngalnst it. He controverted
Mr. Ulaii's assertion that tho condition of
education was worso now than twenty years
ago. If tho bill bocame law, tho lino of state,
and local interests and iutluenco In educa
tion would fade away aud ultimately bo
swallowed up by federal Influence.
Washington, March 7. In the house tho
resolution declaring Mr. Clark (Ala.) en

treasury to pay $175,000 to Albert H.
Emery, of Connecticut, in settlement of
his claim for tho usoof tho testing muchluo
invented by him, wob tnken up and dis

Washington, March 10. The houso con
curred in the senate, resolution providing
for au investigation by a joint committee of
tho scnato house committees on immi
gration Into the working of the federal nnd
state laws relative to immigration from for

Tho house committee on war claims has
authorised a favorable report on the bill In
troduced In tho house by Mr. Malsh to au
thorize the payment of damages sustained
by citizens of tho state of Pennsylvania
from Union and Confederate troops during
the late war. Tho bill appropriates $8,
4l7,iH.'i, payable to the governor of the state
of Pennsylvania, to provide for tho payment
of these claims. The bill passed tho com
mittee by n vote of 6 to 4. The minority

A petition numerously signed has leu
presented to Secretary Windom protesting
against tho selection of Bedloe's Island, Now

Secretary Windom said Bedloe's Island had

William Preston Taulbee, who was shot in
an altercation with Charles E. Klncald, the
Washington correspondent of Tho Wtlivillo
Times, In the houso wing of tho Capitol, on
the afternoon of
Feb. St), died March

His death has

whllo there was

rest entirely on thetestlmony of himself anil
tile two eyo witnesses of tho tragedy. One
of those witnesses wns Samuel Donaldson, of
Tennessee, formerly doorkeeper of tho I101113
of representatives, who has lefused to mako
any statement for publication. Donaldson
was with Taulbee at the time the shooting
occurred. Tho other witness was n boy who
cannot be found. The stories of the shooting
differ in one important particular.
Klncald and Taulbee had au encounter
some time prior to tho shooting In the cor
ridor adjoining the houso of representatives
on me oast, it
was just before
the shooting took
place that Klncnld
had armed him

seeing him going
dowu the stairs
that led to the
basement, bad run

cold claimed that he armed himself In fear
of danger from n further encounter with
Tnulbeo; that Taulbee had warned him t
arm himself, and that Tnulbeo insulted and
attacked him on their second encountor,
rendering his resort to tho pistol a necessity.
As soon as the news of Taulbeo's dentil
reached police headquarters an officer was
6ent to Kincald's room. Ho was awukened,
and after he had dressed was taken to tin
police station, where ho now Is. Thothcory
of self defense will be set up by Kincai d's
Aaron Kohn, the noted criminal lawyer
of Louisville, Ky , and Judgo Hnngls, the
well known jurist of Kentucky, havo b en
engaged by Kincald's friends to defend him
iu his trial.
Boon nf ter ho was shot Mr. Tnulbeo re
quested that no prosecution against Klnculd
should bo taken, but tho low will ha fol

Later advices from the Morsa colliery ni o
that 300 miners were entombed, but that
00 have been rescued from tho workings
nearest the mnln shaft Most of thoio
taken out nre unhurt, but several have re
ceived fatal injuries. Heavy foils of rock
prevent tho explorers from reaching tho 11101 e
remote workings. Tho clioko dump is
spreading, nnd it is feared that 100 lives
have been lost.
A further fall of debris into tho wreched
Morsa colliery has completely blocked the
pit and rendered nil attemps to rescue tho
imprisoned miners futile until tho mnssan
bo cleared nway. The latest estimate places
tho number of dead at over 100.
Eight bodies, horribly mutilated, have
been taken out of the Mois-a pit. It is
rumored that the rescuers Iiato heard ap
peals for help coining from tho entombed
men, but the rescuers are uuablo to push
their search because of the gas and flame
which confront them.
