How the Inmates of Disorderly Houses
Were Arrested and Keleased Without
Trial on Paying Tribute.
Philadelphia, J;m. IS. Yesterday's
session of the senatorial investigating
committee was replete with sensational
testimony, and was confined to the abuses
said to have crept into the police bureau.
Evidence was submitted against House
Sergeant Saddington. of the Chestnut
Hill sub-station and formerly of the Six
teenth police district, to the effect that he
had feloniously assaulted a 7-year-old
daughter of Robert J. Roop, of German
town and now of Wilmington, Del. It was
said that complaint was made at head
quarters, but nothing being done, Sad
dington was arrested. This was about four
years ago. The grand jury found a true
bill against the accused, but the case has
never yet been brought to trial. - The wit
nesses were Mr. Roop, the child and Dr.
Julia Crow, who for twenty years kept
one of the lowest and most notorious
houses in the slum section of the Second
district, next testified. Since August,
through the Christian League, she has been
living respectably in another part of the
city under Ivor proper name. She said po
licemen came to her house every night and
got from si ro z'2 each time, and also con
sorted with the wom-m. She said that men
i:id boys voled from her house irrespective
of how lo!ir th v lived there.

and demand their vote and influence at
elections, on the grounds that the police
had not disturbed them. Other evidence
was given as to assessments of the police,
and also their activity in the recent pri
mary elections in the Eleventh ward.
At the request of Lawyer Pettit the
committee adjourned to meet at the call
of the chair. It was subsequently stated
that it would probably go to Pittsburg

A Spiritualistic Contest.
Andkiison, Did., Jan. 20. There will be
a sensational contest here for six succes
sive nights lieginning tonight. The con
test is between Dr. Covert, who has re
cently sued and been sued by the Indiana
Spiritualists, and Dr. Harry Adams, of
Crawfordsville, Ind, who claims to repre
sent the Spiritualists, but many disclaim
him. Dr. Adams claims there have been
repeated efforts to defraud the Spiritua
lists in Indiana and he has published sev
eral alleged exposures. For six nights Dr.
Adams is to appear here, and Dr. Covert
has wagered that he will do everything
that Dr. Adams performs, Covert not
claiming any medium assistance. The
men have each put up $500 with the
Dr. Jameson's Plot.

long Bloemfontel dispatch which states
that the deputation from the Orange gov
ernment which was sent to Pretoria was
shown documents proving the plot which
was alleged in a dispatch from Transvaal
sources in South Africa on Jan. 12 to ex
ist. This dispatch asserted that it was
the intention of the people of the Char
tered South African company to set loose
savages to invade the Transvaal from all
points, to kill every white man, and that
provision stations had been arranged for
all over South Africa, the object being to
destroy Pretoria and to present England
with the accomplished fact of the conquest.

The main interest, of course, centered
in the choice of th ) convention city. For
this honor there wjre, four applicants, Chi
cago, St. Louis, Cincinnati and New York.
Thirty minutes were allowed each to pre
S2nt its claims.
The balloting began at 6 o'clock last
evening, and from the first a long and
bitter struggle was indicated. The first
ballot resulted: Chicago, (5; Cincinnati,
11; St. Louis, 19; New York, 14. There
was practically no change, except a slight
fluctuation of a vote or two, until the
tenth ballot, when Chicago began gradu
ally to increase her vote at the expense of
New York. At the twentieth ballot Xew
York's strength was rapidly disintegrat
ing, her vote going almost bodily to Chi
cago. But St. Louis, which had tenaci
ously clung to her nineteen votes, also
captured several of Cincinnati's votes, and
on the ballot before the last led New York
by one vo:e.
On tho last ballot, the twenty-ninth,
which was taken shortly before 11 o'clock,
the four remaining votes of New York,
were thrown to Chicago, and she obtained
the necessary plurality. Senator Brico
voted for Cincinnati to the last.

New Yohk, Jan. 18. The fact that Gen

ment to make drew a large crowd of poli
ticians and others to the corridors of tho
Fifth Avenue hotel last night. Many of
the politicians expected that General Har

candidacy for president, .and were disap

talked of matrimonial affairs instead of
politics. At the appointed time Mr. Tib

the following statement in his room,

The Ilond Syndicate Dissolved.
Xew York, Jan. 16. Members of the
government bond syndicate received in
their mail yesterday a circular letter from
J. P. Morgan & Co. releasing them from
J their commitments to furnish their pro
rata of $100,000,000 in gold, and a second
$100,000,000, if desirable, taking their pay
ment therefor in 4 per cent, government
bonds. In a letter to President Cleveland
Mr. Morgan declares that the formation of
the syndicate was not the result of any
conference with government officials, but
that he had, as a business man, anticipated
the action of the president, and prepared
for it. He thinks there is no question as
to the success of the popular loan.

It was violently opposed by tiie Demo

Parkersburg.W. Va., Jan. 20. The jail
is carefully guarded, owing to the at
tempts and threats of lynching those re
cently assaulting girls. Several suspects
are held across the Pennsylvania line for
the outrage on Lulu Wetherell a week ago.
The officers do not want to bring any one
here charged with the Wetherell attack,
unless they have evidence, owing to the
danger of lynching the parties. The sec
ond offender is Charles Russell, charged
with attempting the ruin of his 8-year-old
stepdaughter. While the little girl was
testifying on Saturday Justice Beckwith
adjourned the court quickly and rushed
Russell back to jail to prevent the crowd
in court capturing the prisoner.
Petersburg, Va., Jan. 18. William H.
Green, colored, of Xew York city, wa ar
rested yesterday on a telegram from the
chief of police of Xew York. The charge
against Green is that of stealing a diamond
breastpin and four diamond rings from
Mrs. Manson, of Xew York. Green denies
that he committed the theft, but claims
that the jewelry was stolen by another
party, who divided the stolen jewelry with
him. The prisoner further says that ho re
turned the jewelry which was given him
to Miss Jeannette Manson, Mrs. Manson's
daughter, to whom it belonged. There
appears to be a slight suspicion that Green
is also implicated in the Burden diamond
robbery in Xew York.
