THE DOCTRESS WAS A MAN.
Mrs. Vane Disturb the Slumber of a
Alan Who Masqueraded In Woman'
Clothes-Ue Sold Corn Cur Without
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Hallstead, Dec. 22. Considerable ex
citement was created in this quiet vil
lage on Friday evening' by the arrest
of a mysterious man who has been mas
querading in woman's clothes, provid
ing afflicted humanity hereabouts with
a never-falling corn cure. The ped
dler struck a popular chord in the
hearts of Hallstead's citizens and dis
posed of quantities of medicine suffi
cient to render the town cornless for
generations to come. After a success
ful day's work she, or he, sought the
boarding house of Mrs. Ettle Vance and
paid for a night's lodging from the
generous supply of halves and quar
ters that jingled In her nurse.
Mrs. Vance assigned the corn dortresa
td sleeping apartments and returned to
Iir-r household duties and general medi
tation. As the corn angel, sunk to
pleasant dreams upon one of Mrs.
Vance's newly-renovated feather-beds.
the landlady's suspicions were aroused
by a report that reached her ears to the
effect that others had had doubts as to
the Bex .of the mysterious woman who
had departed from the time-honored
custom and sold corn cure without ac
companying stanzas of poetry. She
finally went up stairs and listened at
the door of the lodger's room. ' Her bus
plclons were confirmed by the resonant
1 snore that broke the stillness of the
bight. She? was convinced that there
was something wrong with her mys
terious visitor. She therefore de
manded admittance. This was mod
estly refused. The landlady then ral
lied her male boarders and stormed
tne bedroom. The door was forced
open and one of the boarders rushed in
and caught the lodger by the neck and
Held on until a constable arrived on
the scene. The lodger whose slumbers
'had thus been rudely disturbed was
taken over to. Great Bend and lodged
In the lockup. At the bastlle the ped
dler admitted his disguise and said
that he had assumed It In order to more
readily dispose of the corn cure. He
stated that he had been on the road for
about three weeks and had. worked
Bcranton, Wllkes-Barre and other
towns down the vallev. and thnt Mr
Vance was the first inquisitive woman
he had encountered.
The prisoner was kept In the lockup
Friday night and all day yesterday.
As no one has preferred a formal charge
gainst mm, it is probable that he will
oe released toaay or tomorrow.

WORK OF BEARS IN LONDON
They Raid American Securities and
Make Big Profits.
BRITISH INVENTORS SCARED
They Are Frightened Into Parting with
Their Holdings at a Sacrifice of
Wild Yarns of America's Shaky
New Tork. Dec. 22. According to a
special cable- dispatch to the Sun, the
financial and commercial war which
England has virtually declared against
the United States is being pushed
rapidly. Friday's wild rush to get rid
of American securities almost at any
price continued yesterday till nearly
the close of the market. The impres
sion still seems to prevail among Eng
lish Investors that by this mad con
duct they are inflicting terrible pun
ishment upon America for her temerity
in opposing tho British Hon. Next
week they will probably realize that It
is a peculiar sort of revenge which
offers to give back to tne offending in
dividuals at thirty to forty per cent,
discount property which had been pur
chased from them.
The attacks upon every line of Ameri
can credit are now Indiscriminate and
unsparing. President Cleveland Is de
nounced In language which Is childishly
abusive and unreasoning. He is the
best hated man in London, an eminence
of which he may well be proud. Still
It Is universally declared that there
will be no war, and that there is no
danger of such a calamity.
The excuse everywhere given for boy
cotting all things American Is thnt the
whole financial and commercial sys
tem of the United States Is intrin
sically rotten, and that he country Is
bankrupt. The private English In
vestor who is the real victim or an mis
trouble unfortunately believes this Ir
responsible Stock Exchange gabble and
sacrifices his holdings. The very peo
ple who gave him this bad advice today
began to profit by It In common with
the Americans who were tempted to
buy by the bargains so strangely of
fered. London bears reapea a ricn
harvest. In the last hour's dealings
yesterday afternoon their purchases in
taKIng profits caused a recovery of
two or three points in some stocks.
It required only a visit to Throgmor
ton street Friday night and yesterday
morning to make it clear how arti
ficial was the panic. There Is no end of
noise, wild rushing to and fro, and wav
ing of warlike news bulletins. Hut
the volume of business done was ac
tually small. The crash was chiefly
confined to American stocks, whereas
If there had been a genuine fear of
hostilities the declines would have been
Just as great In all the English securi
Tho Object In View.
The policy followed by the real lead
ers of the financial world In the past
four days is easy to understand. They
undoubtedly believe, most of them, that
If a sharp touch of disaster be admin
istered to the American business world
It will cause a revolt in popular senti
ment in that country and compel the
president to withdraw his menaces. It
Is worth while to suffer themselves
some Inconvenience and temporary loss
it they can produce this effect. Senti
ment, ordinarily, hns no place In finan
cial affairs, and It Is not playing as
large a part In this as perhaps appears;
but resentment has certainly had its
Influence In Borne of the events of the
past three days.
One strong reason for this Is the fact
that the English people of all classes
continue to believe that President
Cleveland is not sincere in his action
or that he Is controlled by unworthy
motives. The man who more than all
others la responsible for the existence
of this mistaken Impression In this
country Is Mr. Chauncey M. Depew. He
Is the best American In private life
among Englishmen. His name and hln
words are before the English people
more than those of nny other American
citizen. They regard his sentiments as
representative. All the papers In Lon
don quoted him as saying on Wednes
day. 'President Cleveland has taken the
wind out of the sails of other political
leaders In this country, and hns be
come simply, In one night, the only pos
sible candidate whom the Democrats
can nominate for president."
This and more in the same line has
been construed here as meaning that
the president had descended Into llneo-
jsm to meet tne exigencies of domestic
pontics and personal ambition.
Mr. Depew will probably denv that
his words are capable of such a con
struction, but so they are understood
by the English people, and very bitter
are their minds in consequence.
There would be far less disposition to
resort to every possible retaliation, fi
nancial and In other directions, if this
belief that England Is merely being
flouted for a secondary purpose did not
exist. Several American writers in the
j imps ana otner papers are endeavor
ing to correct this Impression, and with
some effect. Efforts alan are hninv
made to give Englishmen, an adequate
jum, nuw completely ine Monroe doc

The boys are highly pleased at the lib
eral patronage that they are receiving
each evening. Tne contestants are
meeting with very good success, and
the amount which Will be realized from
them will swell the gross receipts. The
contest for tne whip between George
Cool and William Williams was won by
Mr. Williams, ne naving i6.fw and Mr.
Cool $5.60. After the close of the con-
test. Chairman Purdy, In behalf of the
hose company, asked Mr. Williams to
become an honorary member of the
hose-company. The chamber set was
won by Mrs. William Bell. No. 49 was
the lucky number. The lap robe was
won on ticket No. 87, and) was held by
Frank Pickering. The quilt presented
to the hose company by the Ladles'
Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal
church, was won on ticket No. 120, and
was held by H. V. McCloskey, of Jer-
myn. Charles Harding won the doll
and E. M. Barnes won the placque, and
John Qrlsdale won the'rug. The door
prize was an express wagon and was
drawn on ticket No. 1292, held by Wil
liam Pollard. The sum realised up to
this writing is about $575. The fair will
