The real depths of a Chicago millionaire's
plot against a poor joung man are now re
vealed. The latler's mother tells the story
of her woes.
Chicago, August 24. For some days
past fragments of a romance have been
coming to light, but it was not until to-day
that the narrative took any definite shape,
or any authority was given for its publica
tion. The actual name of the young fellow,
who, under that of George Dunning, is
serving a lour Tears' term in the peniten
tiary as the result of a millionaire's daugh
ter tailing in love with him, is Ernest Dun
nivant. His father, G. F. Dunnivant, an
old Chicago printer, died four years ago,
leaving a wite, seven daughters and two
sons, the elder being Ernest.
Upon tbe earnings of Ernest the family
were dependent after the death of the father
until the former went to the penitentiary.
Since then the familv's existence has been
maintained by a severe struggle. The
mother, Mrs. Belle Dunnivant, who now
lives at 232 Chestnut street, was called on
this morning by a reporter and asked to
tell her story. It was with great reluctance
that she consented to do so, "because,"
she said, the tears springing to her eyes and
trickling down her careworn face, "Be
cause tbe man who sent him there is so
rich, so powerful, that I am afraid he would
do more harm than he has already done."
THE MOTHER'S STOBT.
Mrs. Dunnivant was assured that nothing
need be feared. She then thought that pub
lication oi her statement might be hurttal
to the young ladv in the case. Reassured
on this point, she consented to tell what
"It was in the summer of 18S5, I think,
some time after my husband died, that I
bought Ernest a newspaper route for $120.
He worked at it faithtully, and earned
about ten dollars a week. The route ran
ior some distance along Dearborn avenue,
and it was while delivering his papers that
he met the young lady r.s she went from
her home to Mrs. Grant's Academy. Er
nest was a handsome boy, and his looks and
manners seemed to attract her attention,
and although I am not familiar with just
how they became acquainted, I know that
they nnally became very mcch interrested
( in each other and used to meet in Lincoln
. Park. I did not know of tbis at tbe time,
I and in fact knew nothing of it until fall.
, "Finally, alter a month or so of intimate
v acquaintance, the family of the young lady
heard of it, and tried to break it up. A
most close watch was kept on the young
lady, and meetings were lor a time stopped.
Ernest went by the house one day and asked
of the coachman sometbing concerning the
young lady. Tne coachman
K.-FOEMED HIS MASTER,
' whp had a warrant sworn out for Ernest's
arrest and had the coachman serve it. My
boy was caught in the street, and taken to
; the East Chicago avenue station and kept
; all night. Ther4Gwis nothioj against him
; to punish him for, but instead of letting
him go tree a $25 fine was imposed and sus
I pended. onci. ,..,
"Alter that things went on as before un
til one day the young lady met Ernest and
told him that the evening previous she
v overheard her father in the library tell a
i detective that Ernest was bothering him,
I and that he wanted the detective to follow
Ernest and try td catch him in some crime
and send him to jail and keep bin out of
the way. My poor boy, whose only sin was
to be loved by the daughter of the man who
wanted him in jail."
Mrs. Dunnivant sobbed convulsively for
a few moments, and then continued:
' "The detective followed Ernest every
where for a long time, and finally he was
arrested on a charge of burglary." Ernest
I was wholly innocent, but he was sentenced
to GO days in the county jail. "Wheu he got
out, he received a note from the yonng lady,
who had gone with her family to Geneva
Xake,asking him to come to Genera and see
A FATAI, NOTE.
"Ernest get permission from me to spend
a few days in the country, I supposed, just
ior a little, outing. Well, he went to Gen
eva Lake and met the young lady's little
sister. He gave her a note for the young
lady, but the littlegirl gave it to a nurse
who gave it to the, father's son-in-law.
When that young man read the note he
took the coachman anct set out to find Ern
i est. They found iftm, and threatened to
throw him into the lake. I don't think they
did so, but something happened, for Ernest
did not come back for two or three days,and
then witbont his hat.
"Ihe young lady was sent from Geneva
Lake to a school in Ogantz, Pa., and it was
then I learned of the detectives dogging my
boy. I immediately sold out tbe ronte and
, tried to get him a situation. The young
lidy wrotei believe, to an employe of her
father in South Chicaco, who had prorcssed
a solicitous friendship-tor her and promised
to give Ernest something to do. He saw
Ernest and told him to come out to South
Chicago. Ernest went there with Frank
Allen, o 1 whpm Ernest knew but little. Al
len got Ernest slightly intoxicated and took
him to the Farnsworths, whom Allen said
he knew. There was no one there, and, aft
er waiting inside for a while, they walked
down the street. As they passed a store Al
len grabbed a coat from a dummy and ran
an ay with it
"Ernest walked quietly on somewhat
dazed by the liquor Allen had given him.
He was arrested at once and taken to the
station, and Allen was caught a little later
and also brought there. When Allen was
arrested he said that he and Ernest had
robbed the Farnsworth's House, although,
mind yon, nothing was taken away. My
boy protested innocence, but the Farns
worths swore hard against Urn, and that,
with Allen's confession, was too much, and
both were taken to jail. That was about
Christmas. Some time before I had received
a letter lrom the young lady telling me all
about her acquaintance with Ernest. She
said her parents objected and asked me for
my advice. I replied that if her parents
' were like me they were only seeking her
gooa, and I advised her to do as they de
sired. "She also wanted to know if she might
call on me when she came back to spend the
Christmas vacation, and I consented. She
came here one day and told roe all tbe story
again. How much she thought of Ernest,
how she intended to set him up in business,
how she had often offered him moneys which
he always refused to take. I then told her
that Ernest had been arrested. It was the
first she had heard of it. She said she was
helpless and could do nothing. She called
again, though, and said she had hired a
lawyer to defend Ernest, and she wanted
me to tell him that if he were sent to jail
not to fear, that she would think as much of
him as ever. She then asked me to. write
her at the boarding school how tbe trial
came out, and then went away.
' A HEAVY SESTENCE.
"Ernest was advised to plead guiltv, but
he declared be would not plead guilty, and
he did not, and was sentenced to four years.
Allen's attorney got Allen a new trial, and
he then received but oBe year in the Bride
well, but Ernest was unable to secure a new
he.iriug of his case.
"I wrote to tbe young lady as I had
agreed to do, but I don't think she got the
letter. Her father heard that I had written
her, however, and sent her away for a time.
She came back last year and called on me.
She spoke indignantly of Ernest's being in
the penitentiary, and wanted me to write
him of how much she thought of him, and
how much she should help him when he got
out. She said that she herself had been
practically in a prison during her two years
"Some time last'year an attorney was rec
ommended to me by a woman as a man who
could not be bought off. I went to him, and
he said that he could assist me. He asked
me if I had any letters as proofs. I told him
I had, and mentioned those from the young
lady. He said those were just what 'he
wanted; that he had made the millionaire
settle for two scrapes he had gotten into
one on Wabash avenue, and the other on
Washington boulevard, and that by show
ing the letters to him, the father would im
mediately get Ernest pardoned out. I gave
him the fetters, and that was the last I saw
PIKE IF THE HOLD.
Narrow Eicnpo ofa FaciOe Mull Steamship
From Destruction A Stubborn Fight
With the Flame That Lasted
Nearly 24 Hoars.
New Xork, August 24. The Pacific
Mail steamship City of Para, with 29 cabin
passengers, arrived at Sandy Hook this
morning lrom Aspinwall. The combings
of her forward hatch burned and scorched,
are the outward marks of a big fire which
came very near destroying the vessel and a
precious cargo. The Para left 2few York
the first part of this month with a fall
cargo of merchandise. She reached Aspin
wall in due season, and the 'longshoremen
and sailors had discharged a total of 650
tons of cargo from the hold when fire was
discovered among 'the cotton and naval
stores which were stowed in the forward
This was on the evening of August 11,
two days after the vessel's arrival. The fire
had complete control of the forehold when
discovered, and, before the alarm could be
sounded, great sheets of flame and volumes
of blinding smoke filled the air over the
forward part of the craft. The flames at
tracted tbe attention of the ancient Fire
Department of Aspinwall, which turned
out, and, with a number of American labor
ers about the docks, set to work to assist the
people of the steamship in extinguishing
the flamts. AH through the night of the
11th the men toiled, several tailing ex
hausted as morning came on from overwork.
Tbe 12th opened with the fire still burn
ing fiercely, and toward noon of that day it
looked as if the steamer was doomed. D tir
ing the afternoon of the 12th the flames
went down as suddenly as they began, and
at 4 o'clock Captain Lockwood, the skipper
of the ship, reported the fire extinguished.
A Tery considerable quantity of cargo was
destroyed, and the interior of the vessel is
THAT BLOODY FEUD.
The Gorernor of Kentucky Appealed to for

Louisville, August 24. Judge Eobert
Boyd, of the Fifteenth Judicial District, in
which Harlan county is situated, came here
to-day to request Fovernor Buckner to send
troops to arrest Wilson Howard, leader of
tbe band of outlaws that killed four citizens
last Tuesday. Judge Boyd spoke in sub
stance as follows:
I think that troops are necessary to capture
the outlaws ami their presence be essential at
tbe criminal court in order tbat the law might
be enforced. It is my plan to stayon officers at
all the principal outlets of Harlan county and
let them Intercept all attempts t escape from
the county. Then let the tronps raid their
fastnesses and either capture or drive them In
to the bands of those who gnard the roads
and other outlets. If Wilson Howard and
Hill Jennings could he taken the trouble
would end. lint they are related to about one
fourth of the Hailan county inhabitants and
have a large number of active supporters. Con
sequently it wonld be a hatdHnattor to capture
them without military support: Howard and
Jennings offered to surrendgrwme and sent
Harry Eversolo to negotiate the conditions.
They sent word they wonld surrender if they
were asurea uau wouia oe anoweu tuem, out
I, of course, demanded an unconditional sur
render. I think the best thing to be done In case of
capture would be to turn tbera over to tbe
Missouri authorities as quickly as possible.
They are both wanted in that State for two or
three murders. They murdered a deaf mute
in cold Mood, and, I think, killed one or two
persons afterward. Marshal Hunter came
near capturing Howard some time since out In
Rock Castle county. Howard, however, was
warned before Captain Hunter reached the
house, and made good bis escape on a very
swift horse. There are several rewards offered
for their capture, bnt nothing like such a large
sum as has been reported. I will continue to
hold court as usual.
WILL TRY IT AGAIN.
A New Form of Bids Prepared for Build
in? the Cruiser.
Washington, August 24 Advertise
ments were re-issued to-day from the Navy
Department for bids for the construction of
the three 2,000 ton cruisers for which ex
cesive proposals were opened on Thursday.
The new advertisements are the same as the
old with certain important differences that
are expected to induce contractors to offer
bids that will fall within the appropriation.
The department makes several concessions
to this end. In the first place six months
more time is given, making the contract
period two and one-half years. The maxi
mum speed to be obtained is fixed at 17
knots instead of 18. and the premium rate
There will be a premium of $25,000 for
each auarter knot over tbe maximum and a
similar deduction for each quarter knot be
low instead of $10,000 for the first quarter
knot, 520,000 (or tbe second, $30,000 for
third, and $40,000 for fourth and all above.
The minimum speed below which vessels
will be rejected, is to 16 knots instead of
16J. The bids will be opened October 26.
No action has yet been taken in the case of
the two 3,000 ton vessels, but a re-advertisement
will probably be issued for them.
BOTH CLAIM THE PLACE.
Two Men With One Name Want tbe Same
Washington, August 24. The Fourth
Auditor of the Treasury has transmitted to
the First Controller a letter received by him
from Andrew J. Whitaker, of Carpenters
ville, 111., in which tbe writer says he has
seen in a Chicago newspaper a notice of his
appointment as Deputy Fourth Auditor, and
begs leave to accept the office, with thanks.
Andrew J. Whitaker, of Illinois, jwas
dtilv appointed to that office about two
weeks ago, and a gentleman who claims to
be from Illinois, although recently engaged
in business here, appeared a week ago, quali
fied and began tbe discharge of the duties of
Deputy Auditor. The Fourth Auditor has

As a result of so many Parnellite mem

Parliament still drags its slow length along,
but everything has been arranged for ad
journment next Friday. Parnell is still
very angry with that half of his party that,
as was related in The Dispatch last Sun
day, went grouse shooting on the day the
season opened, and lost an opportunity to
defeat the Government measure. It is now
said, and generally believed, that about 40
of the present Parnellite members will not
be seen in the House of Commons after the
present session. These are the members who
lack esprit du corps, and have even refused
to obey their chieftain s whips, as on the oc
casion that has brought about their undoing.
Tbe Irish newspapers have denounced the
laggards in the most furions terms, and there
is little doubt that nearly half of the Irish
party will be quietly asked to resign their
seats, in view of the general election.
OTJTBAGES STILL CONTINUE.
The oarages of English misrule in Irelend
still continue. O'Brien and Gilbooly, who
are now being tried at Clonakilty, are being
prosecuted on evidence furnished by police
men who pretended to take down incendiary
speeches in shorthand. Harrington, the
M. P., who came near thrashing Baltour a
fortnight ago, attended the trial to-day, to
cross-examine one of these police reporters.
Harrington gave the policeman a test, and
found he was unable to follow the slowest
possible speech. O'Brien, as most Ameri
cans know, is a very rapid speaker, and yet
the witness swore that he had taken down
O'Brien's speech in the open air, without
table or any rest for his notebook, verbatim.
In the presence of the Conrt Harrington
then read a passage containing 127 words
in 70 seconds, the policeman taking it down
in shorthand. Twelve minutes were then
given him to transcribe his notes, and it
was found that he had omitted 00 oat of the
127 words. And yet it is upon testimony
such as this tbat Irish patriots are con
victed, as O'Brien and Gilhooly are sure
THE CONYBEAEB CASE.
An effort was made in Parliament this
we:k to secure the transfer of Cony
beare from Londonderry jail to
better quarters. Conybeare, who rep
resents the division of Cornwall in Par
liament, is undergoing a sentence of six
months in the Londonderry jail for partici
pating in tbe plan of campaign, of which he
has served two months already. He has
been afflicted with a loathsome disease, con
tracted in bis cell, and he is covered with
vermin. Still he will make no appeal for
relief, and his colleagues in Parliament are
obliged to interfere on his behalf, against
his will. Iu the debate upon Conybeare's
removal last;evening, Balfour said, iu re
sponse to questions from the Irish members,
that he had no idea how Conybeare became
covered with vermin, but he supposed tbat
the last occupant of tho cell must have left
them on him. When Balfour was asked
who was the last occupant of the cell, he
responded, "Father McFadden," a piece of
gratuitous Dlaccguaraism, since the jail

Queen Victoria has gone down to Wales,
undeterred by the threats of being hissed
out of the country. Still, Her Majesty was
not inclined to trust too much to the loyalty
of the people, and she gave strict orders that
all druids, bards and Taffies, who delight in
being called Welshmen, should be excluded
from tbe station at which she arrived, and
she drove away in a closed carriage, so that
none of her dutiful subjects should see her.
But, notwithstanding all this, they aid
cheer her, and Tom Gee, of Denbigh, who
was to have started the hissing of Victoria,
was nowhere to be found when the critical
moment arrived. Consequently, tbe head
of the church of Old England has not yet
been deposed, and probably it was in a
spirit of thankfulness at this mercy vouch
