He Observes That Great Victories
Bring Great Responsibilities.
MIghy Victory Was Won Xot By Organ
ization but hy 1'rlnclples-VVisdom,
.Modcrutiou and. Good Sense Must
Prevail That Success May Follow.
By the United Press.
Boston, 'Nov.i22. Distinguished speak
ers, 1,300 gue3ts and unlimited enthusi
asm over the recent Republican vic
tory made the eighth annual dinner of
the Home Market club in Mechanic's
building this evening a grand success.
When President Bent rapped for or
der he was greeted by nearly 6,000 peo
ple. After a brief reference to the re
cent victory us establishing the prin
ciples of the club, he Introduced Gover
nor Grcenhalge to welcome the guests.
The next speaker was Senator Hoar,
who was greeted with three cheers and
frequently applauded. His speech was
entirely devoted to a recital of the vic
tory attained by the Republican parly
In the recent elections.
Senntor .Hoar was followed by ex
Fpeaker Reed, who was greeted with
enthusiastic cheering, the audience giv
ing three cheers and then rising, shout
ing and waving handkerchiefs. Mr.
Reed said:
I do not desire to waate your time In
exultation, though 1 am obeying Scrip
ture when I rejoice with those who do re
joice. Nevertheless wo have got some
thing else to do besides rejoice. Vic
tories bring responsibilities, and our vic
tory Is co great that it probably means re
sponsibilities for many years. If we have
wisdom for two years v.o will ba trusted
for more, and the wisdom for the next
two years seem to be easy. We have
neither the president nor the senate and
all we can do Is to let the country try
the results of the folly of 1K12. It Is a
poor prospect, but it Is all there is.
There are compensations, however. We
shall have two years to look over the sit
uation, so as to do the best we can when
our tlmo has fully come. So far, we have
done ull that lay In our power. The bad
work cannot go on, even If the good worii
cannot commence. We have removed one
uncertainty, that of the future, the uncer
tainty of possible change, but the uncer
tainty of the present still remains.
This country Is in favor of the doctrine
of protection, largely In favor of It.
We have had a mighty victory, the
greatest In the history of our country.
It was won, not hy our organization, but
by our principles. But great as our vic
tory Is, there Is a greater which we must
win. By our wisdom, moderation and
good sense we must so govern
this country that the great ques
tions of the. next six years may have
as noble a solution as the great questions
of their day had had at .the hands of
those great Republicans who preserved
the Union, upheld the honor of the nation
and gave the pcoplcthirty years of peace,

In a Fit of Hysteria Arising from Anger
, Annie (.luinn Kaisos a Lively Itow la
Mrs. Pearson's Kitchen.
Riverton, N. J. Nov. 22. Annie
Quinn, a -servant girl, attempted to cre
mate the 2-year-old baby of Edward
Pearson, a butcher, today. The girl,
who Is only 15 years old1, but large for
her age, has been In Pearson's service
about two months.
Mrs. Pearson was In the kitchen as
sisting the girl in the preparation of
dinner. She left the girl busy about
her duties and passed into the store.
Scarcely had she turned her back when
she was startled by the screams of the
older of her two children. She hurried
back and the sight that met her gaze
appalled her. Annie, the girl, held the
2-year-old baby over the stove, from
which she had removed ull the lids and
In which a furious fire was burning.
The little one was already withering
under the fierce heat, a strange light
shone from the girl's eyes, and as the
frenzied mother sprang toward her she
turned like a demon and screamed:
"Get out; you must die, too."
Mrs. Pearson braVely attacked the
girl, who, dropping the little one on the
lloor. she turned and fought like a tig
gress. Mrs. Pearson was no match for
her and the girl thrust her from the
room and locked the door.
Mrs. Pearson's frenzied cries for help
brought Frank Dean. He burst through
the kitchen door and was Just In time
to divert the attention of the girl, who
had seized the baby -again. Though a
strong, Jiearty fellow, he was no match
for the girl In her frenzied condition,
and ho summoned assistance.' She was
overpowered by three men, and Dr.
Marcy administered opiates which
quieted her.
Dr. Marcy said tha,t the girl's condi
tion was due to hysteria arising from
angry passion. Her mother, who lives
In East Riverton had called at the
house during the morning and collected
the wages due her daughter. Annie
flew into a violent rage when she learn
ed this, and for the balance of the morn
ing was like one In a trance.

Another Mysterious Individual Appears
with a Letter Directing That the Best
Counsel Be Fngaged for Holmes.
The Prisoner Loses His Nerve. -
By tho United Press.
Philadelphia, Nov. 22.- J. D. I '.owe,
th : o :ng St. Louis lawyer, who is sus
pected of being an ac.-esory in the Pit
zel Insurance conspiracy case and who
Is under indictment for the crime, ar
rived here this morning from Washing
ton. He went to the capital to enlist
the services of Senator Cockerell, of
Missouri, In his behalf, but the senator
told him he had no acquaintances In
this city who he could ask to go Howe's
On his arrival here Howe was met
by a number of reporters to whom he
made a statement of his connection
with the case. His statement was a
general one and he claims that he was
only connected with tho case as an at
torney and that he knew ' nothing
further about it than what Mrs. Pitzel
and Holmes told him when they se
cured him to collect the claim against
the Insurance company. After making
the statement, Howe and his law part
ner, McDonald, went to the ofllce of
Superintendent of Police Linden and
the former was Introduced to Captain
Linden and formally surrendered him
self Into custody. Judge Bregy fixed
Howe's ball at $2,500.
Through the aid of his friend, Mc
Donald, Howe succeeded In getting ball
this afternoon. William McGonigal, a
saloonkeeper, an old friend of McDon
ald's became Howe's surety.
Another Flcmcnt of Mystery.
Another element of the mysterious
was Introduced into this mysterious
case today. Yesterday afternoon W.
A. Shoemaker, a young lawyer, had a
call from a man who is a stranger to
him. This man gave to Shoemaker an
unaddressed envelope in which was a
short note addressed to Shoemaker. In
the note the writer wrote that he had
heard of Mr. Shoemaker through the
brother of A. W. Perk, of Chicago. One
hundred dollars was enclosed and the
wrltor of the note stated that he
wanted Mr. Shoemaker to undertake
the defence of Holmes and to secure
the services as well of two of the best
criminal lawyers In Philadelphia.
Money in abundance to conduct the
defence was promised, and tho writer
Bald he hoped to meet In person the
attorneys within ten days. If he was
not able to come himself he suld that
a man who was designated as "H"
would come In his place, and that he
might be Identified he would bear with
him a slip of paper, upon which would
be writing similar to that of the note.
The letter .was merely signed "P. L,"
and was dated Chicago, Nov. 19.
After answering such questions of
Shoemaker's as he saw lit the man dis
appeared and Shoemaker has seen
nothing of him since.
Shoemaker today engaged Harry
Hawkins, the well known criminal law
yer of this city, ns his fellow counsel In
the case, and they called upon Holmes.
They had a long Interview with Holmes
and the latter agreed to accept them as
his counsel. Of the Interview Mr. Shoe
maker would only say that Holmes
said that he did not know who "P. L."
was, but that he knew who "H" was,
and then for the . first time the
cool nerve of the much accused man
gave way and he broke down and ried.
The police still adhere to their belief
that Pitzel Is dead.

Grcut Battleship Chen Yuen Is De
stroyed by a Torpedo.
Anticipating Officlul Condemnation He
Ends His Own I.ife-Tlie Ship Is Acci
dentally Dumugcd by One of tho
Chinese Torpedoes und Beached,
Washington, Nov. 22. The navy de
partment toduy received a cablegram
from an ofllcer of the American fleet In
China, detailed for the purpose of giv
ing confidential information of impor
tant events In the Eastern war, stating
that the Chen Yuen, the great Chinese
battleship in leaving Wel-Hnl-Wel har
bor on Nov. 18 was accldently damaged
by a torpedo and was afterwards
beached. There being no docking fa
cilities, she Is therefore now useless.
Commodore Lin, who was in command
of the vessel, anticipated official con
demnation by committing suicide.
Wel-Hal-Wel harbor Is directly across
the bay of Korea from Tallen Wan,
distant 150 miles, and It Is significant
that the Japanese admiral, Ito, tele
graphed to his government under date
of the 18th from Tallen Wan stating
that the principal Chinese fleet With
four gunboats was lying Inside the har
bor at Wei-Hal-Wel and that, although
for two days the Japanese fleet had
made every effort to induce the Chinese
vessels to come out, their attempts had
proved fruitless. The admiral appears
then to have returned to Tallen Wan,
probably on the 18th, leaving a portion
of his fleet watching for the appear
ance of Chinese vessels outside of Wel-Hal-Wel.
Fell Into Her Own Trap.
The Chen Yuen possibly came out to
attack the Japanese fleet when she
touched upon one of the submarines
which the Chinese themselves had
placed In the channel of the harbor, as
a means of defense.
With tho loss of the Chen Yuen, her
greatest battleship, China has become
practically powerless on the sea. This
Bplendld vessel was very much like the
Maine of the United States navy. Her
length was 308 feet, beam 69 feet, and
draught 20 feet. She had a belt of 14
Inch composite armor, her turrets be
ing 12 Inches thick. She was armed
with four 12-Inch Krupp guns, two of
fifteen centimeter caliber, four of one
ton, ejght machine guns, two light
rapid fire rifles and wus provided with
two torpedo launching tubes. She was
finished at a cost of about $3,000,000 in
1882. Her speed was fourteen and one
half knots and her bunkers held 1,000
tons of coal.

Finds That His Mother's Remains Had
Uecn Disseeted and Cremated.
Di D. Dovles Places His Mother in the
Almshouse During Temporary Absence,
On Returning Finds Her Dead Body
Wus Sent to a Medical College.
By the United Press.
Philadelphia. Nov. 22. D. D. Davles,
of Bloomsburg, Columbia county, has
been to this city upon a fruitless search
after the remains of his mother. Davles'
father died in 1876, and from that time
until about ten months ago the son
cared for his mother, even when she be
came so helpless that he had to dress
her in the morning and undress her at
night. Davles' business called him away
form home, and his mother being un
able to prepare a meal for herself, the
son took her to the almshouse of Lu
zerne county. He also asserts that he
made diligent efforts and was unable
to employ any one to care for the aged
According to Davles' story he left
word with the superintendent of the
almshouse to notify him at Blooms
burg In case his mother died. Then the
agent went on his tour, going to
Rochester and Buffalo, N. Y., and as
far west as Amherst, Ohio, leaving
word nt the various postolllces to for
ward his mall. Returning to the Lu
zerne county almshouse last Saturday
he found that his mother had died on
September 18 and that her body hud
been turned over to the Anatomical
board In Philadelphia.
Scurch for the Body.
Then Davies came post haste to this
city In search for the body. He ascer
tained that It hurt been duly receved, a
record being kept of It, and he was in
formed that if it was possible to col
lect the parts it would be returned to
him ugnln and if he was able he would
be expected to reimburse the anatom
ical board for Its outlay. An attempt
to collect the parts, however, disclosed
that they had all been cremated.
Davles threatens to prosecute the au
thorities of Luzerne county for turn
ing the body over to the anatomical
board without notice to him of his
mother's death.
It Is claimed that notice was sent as
Davles directed, but he failed to re
ceive It on account of his absence, from
his usual place of residence. The law
which was enacted to prevent the dese
cration of graves by supplying medical
colleges with bodies of paupers provides
that the officers of almshouses shall
turn over all unclaimed bodies to the
anatomical board, and the officers claim
that their act was In compliance with
this statute.
