LIVING NEAR PHILADELPHIA
Mrs. Edwards Desires No Notoriety
and Pleads That Her Place of Se
clusion Be Not Told Gives Thanks.
In the outskirts of Philadelphia Mrs.
Kate Edwards, released from prison
after thirteen years' Incarceration for
murder, is living in seclusion at the
home of one of the numerous womei.
who have been working for years to
gain liberty for her.
When she left the Jail in Berks
county Mrs. Edwards took on a new
name which she says blie will retain
for the rest of her life.
"Don't tell them where I am," she
Bald plteously. "Don't tell anyone
where I am. I am not Kate Edwards
any more. She is dead and buried. I
have left her behind with all the
horror and the suffering. I Just want
to start again. I never knew what
life was, or what liuiuun kindness was,
until I was put in Jail."
The copy of a letter for the news
papers prepared by Mrs. Edwards as
sisted by her attorneys follows:
"To the newspapers of the country,
and the hundreds of thousands of per
sons who have stood by me in tho
ordeal of my trial and Imprisonment:
"Through your efforts, the kindness
of the board of pardons and the grace
of his excellency, the governor of the
commonwealth, I renew my place In
the world as a free woman. To all
who have befriended me I offer my
heartfelt thanks, T wlsh them God
speed. I shall, by living a life ct
purity, endeavor to redeem the past.

Criticism For Parcel Post.
During the debate on an amendment
to the postofllce appropriation bill In
the Benate Senator Brlstow of Kansas
made an attack cn the way the parcel
post law Is being administered.
The amendment that Senator Brls
tow supported provides that the pres
ent zone arrangement be not dis
turbed by the postmaster general un
less he Is given authority.
The senator pointed out many re
markable disparities under the system
of administering the law between the
cost of transporting parcels of the
same weight for longer and shorter
He showed that In Virginia It would
cost as much to convey a parcel from
Staunton to another point thirteen
miles away as It would cost to carry
the Rame parcel from Washington to
the same destination.
"If the bill had been actuully drawn
by the big mail order houses," said Hip
senator from Kansas, "It could not
have more nearly met the require
ments of these concerns. As admin
istered tliey enjoy remarkable favors
in the way of transportation."
Ohioan May Go to Russia.
Senator Pomerene of Ohio expressed
the opinion that Representative W. C.
Sharp of Klyria, O., would be appoint
ed ambassador to Russia. Mr. Sharp
Is one of the wealthiest members of
congress front Ohio and Is said to have
amassed about $2,000,000 from the
manufacturing business and is not
averse to entering the diplomatic serv
ice. The only obstacle that appears in
the way of the appointment Is the at
titude of Governor Cox of Ohio, be
tween whom and Representative Sharp
there has been a sharp political rivalry
and some bad feeling. Senator Pom
erene was asked by the president
whether the appointment of Mr. Sharp
as ambassador would be offensive to
Governor Cox. The senator stated that
In his opinion It would not, but ad
mitted that he had not communicated
with the governor.
Former Senator Teller Dies.
Henry Moore Teller, who was secre
tary of the Interior in President
Arthur's cabinet and for more than
