A BRUTE'S CONFESSION
Tells How He Killed His Three Sis
ters and Little Brother.
Montreal, Nov. 8. Thomas Nulty, 21
years of age, brother and confessed
murderer of the victims of the Rawdon
tragedy, was taken to Joliette jail yes
terday. Tom and the two older sisters
had frequently quarreled, and it ap
pears that on Thursday he had a row
with the eldest girl, E.izabeth, who
was only 16 years old. Words had been
succeeded by oaths and blows, until
Tom drove his sister out of the house.
Then, according to the confession of
the crime made by him, he followed
her to the barn, threatening to murder
her. The second sister. Annie, arming
herself with a keen bladed ax, follow
ed Tom, - resolved to protect her sister
from violence, even if she had to use
the ax. Tom turned sharply around,
and before she was awafS he came sud
denly upon her. A brief struggle for
the weapon was followed by Tom
wresting the ax from her hands and
striking savagely at her neck. His
woodman's skill did not fail him. The
keen weapon was buried In her neck,
and she fell dead, Just as the horrified
Elizabeth ran up to see what had hap
pened. As Elizabeth turned to flee the
murderer remembered her as the' first
cause of the crime, and resolved to
carry out his original impulse of re
venge. He chased the shrieking girl
to the barn and struck her also with the
ax, felling her as-he had done poor
Annie. Tom then returned to the house
and forced open the door, which the
two other rluidren had barricaded, and
killed thern as he did the others.
the disaster to the Idaho, haying on
board the two surviving members of
the crew, Captain Root had this to say
regarding the storm on the lake and
the rescue of the two men:
"It was about 12:30 Saturday after
noon when I first leafned of the wreck
of the Idaho. We sighted a spar off to
the north with two men clinging to it.
We were running under a good head of
steam at the time, and I put on more
and headed for the spar.
"When I got near I was puzzled how
to help the men off, for f could not low
er a boat in such a storm. Finally I
circled' about the spar until I ran along
side, when my men picked the poor fel
lows off. They had to drag them away
from the spar by fore, for the men had
been there so long that their arms had
become numb and were twisted about
the mast and almost frozen fast to it."
William Gill, the rescued deck hand,
a swarthy, well built man 23 years old,
has sailed the lakes since he was a
youth. He is more intelligent, than
the average seafaring man, and his
story of the disaster is a thrilling one.
"We left here Friday' night, bound
for Chicago, with a cargo of general
merchandise," said he "Everything
seemed all right until we got outside
me DreaKwaier, ana tnch we were-t
struck by the worst storm that I ever
saw. When the first big breaker struck
us we were tossed up in the air like
a top, and a second later a big roller
came over the port bow and rolled
down amidships a foot deep.
"We moved slowly against the heavy
wind and sea, and when we were well
up the lake we founi that the boat was
making water. Ifckcr coming faster
and faster, and the,, bilge pumps were
put to work, but the water gained, and
every minute the ship kept getting
less buoyant and the big combers con
tinued breaking over her. '
"The water gained on the pumps and
the buckets, and soon the water put
the fires out. The only hope left us
was to run out the anchor and bring
her head up to the sea and let her ride

They keep the system ... H
gait. But the sea was too
and instead of the anchor
catching with a firm grip and bringing
s head up to the storm with a
jerk it went too slow, and she simply
tumbled into the trough of the seas,
which bf-oke over her in torrents. The
load was too much, and after a moment
the ship keeled over to starboard and
went down, stern first.
"Wrhat became of my mates I don't
know. I remember that the boats had
been loosened and that some of the men
were ready to take them if the vessel
werit under, but no boat could have
lived for a minute In that terrible sea,
and if any of them did get in the boats
it was simply to be swamped as soon
as the first Wave struck them. May be
they did not leave the ship at all. I was
near the spar, and when the stern of
the veser began to go under I went for
the rigging and went up as fast as I
could. Another man went with me the
second mate and I thank the Lord
that he was with me, or I would have
gone mad. . -
"The hail, and sleet was coming down
in a cutting sheet, and we were covered
with ice in a few minutes, for though
the top of the spar on which we were
hanging was 25 feet above the water,
the big waves struck us and broke
ovefriand the hail cut us like shot.
"I .kjlw that it was about 3 o'clock
when we went down, and it seemed
to me that daylight would -never come.
For what seemed to be an acre we hung
on . to the rigging, and we twisted our
arms about the snar and let them
freeze in position, tor otherwise we
would have fallen into the fearful sea,
"When daylight came we could not
see a sail anywhere near us, and the
sea was as bad as ever. There did not
seem to be any chance of it going down
Hour after hour we waited there, and
then we saw the Mariposa coming.
When she finally sighted us and we
saw her head for us I tried to tell my
mate, but I could not, and he looked
at me with a happy look on his face.
On the third trip around she ran right
alongside our spar and as she went
past a dozen men reached for us. An in
stant later we had passed the little
stick on which I and the mate had been
hanging for almost a day, although it
seemed a week."
The second mate, Louis Laforce, told
a harrowing story to the crew of the
Maripcra. lie said that in the rush of
tha men from the hold one of them, a
watchman, was trampled to death. The
crew was frantic to get out of the place.
Six or eight, he said, must have been
drowned lia.o rais in the hold. They
were not warned of the sinking of the
boat. The first long dip of the stern
was the first intimation they had of
the final danger, and then they made
a frantic rush to get cn deck. The
hatchway was top small 'to let them
through together, anil the result was
that one of them was tramp'ed to death
and several were left to drown.

Atlanta, Nov. 6. The Georgia senate
yesterday defeated a measure "which.
If passed, would have had the effect of
making Georgia a prohibition state.
The bill has been pending in the leg
islature since last year, and has been
exhaustively argued. The vote on the
bill was 18 to 23. - It is understood that
the majority against the passage of the
bill would have been proportionately
much greater in the house if the meas

Board Composed of the President,
Secretary of the Treasury and Comp
troller of the Currency. .
Washington, Nov. 8. The monetary
commission is receiving, in answer to
Its invitation, many interesting propo
sitions for reform of the banking and
currency sytem of the country, and
among these is one from John C. Bul
litt, which, coming highly endorsed as
it does by financial authorities, has
commanded great attention and study.
Mr. Bullitt's plan touches every branch
of the problem before the commission,
and its provision, in outline are as fol
That all ot the outstanding currency
obligations, amounting to about $800,-
000.000, shall be .taken up and can
celled, being replaced according to
business exigencies (under the direction
of a currency board, composed of the
president, secretary of the treasury
and comptroller of the currency) by 3
per cent bonds. There is to be but one
kind of currency, namely, national
bank notes, redeemable in gold at the
bank of issue and a selected bank of
reserve, and these notes are to be is
sued gradually to replace obligations
as the latter are retired. These notes
are to be secured by a deposit of 1 5
per cent of gold In the treasury, by 15
per cent gold in the bank vaults and by
first lien upon all of the banksassets.
as well as by a -special provision' giving
the government the right to assess all j
national banks when needed to make
good notes of a defaulting bank, the j
notes of which would then be redeemed
by the government.
A tax is to be laid upon the banks'
to cover the expenses of the currency
board and the balance held to secure
redemption of notes in gold, but if this
exceeds $10,000,000 this surplus may be
covered Into the treasury to pay in?
terest on United States bonds and for
general purposes. This tax should be
one-half of I per cent or 1 per cent per
annum, as the commission shall elect.
Power should be given to the banks
under permission from the currency
board to increase the note issue when
demand caused by unusual financial
emergencies, such increase to be sub
ject to a tax (to be determined , from
time to time by the currency board)
upon the notes while in circulation, the
tax upon the notes to be at a rate
which would pxit a pressure upon the
banks to take up the notes when the
emergency has passed.
Silver and subsidiary coins should be
redeemed in gold by the United States
government when demanded. These
amount to about $100,000,000.
No note should be issued for less than

Catarrh often appears as only a cold at
firs , and is hardly noticed. - But gradu
ally the cold returns, and it is more ,
diiculttocure,andf.taysiong' r than for
merly. These symptoms cnn-.t be mis- -taken;
they mark the fir. t appearance of a
diseass that will develop la severity and
stubbornness, and which it is impossible
tocnre with the local treatment of sprays,
washes, and similar applications. Being
a disease of the bUod, only a blood
remedv can have the slightent effect
upon it. S.S.S. (Swift's Specific) is the
only cure fur Catarrh, because it is the
on y blood remedy which goes to the
seat of all obstinate aud deep-seated
case , and fores out the disease.
Mr. T. A. Williams, a leading mer
chant of Spartanburg, S. writes:
"For four years I had nasal catarrh,
and though 'he case was a mild one at
fir.-t.it was not long until I noticed that it
was gradually growing worse. Of course
I wa9 under treatment of first-clasaphy-sicians,
but 4htir remedies were applied
locally, aud the disease seemed to beget

"After spending so much money for
treatment which proved to be. all in
vain, I was urged to try S.S.S. This rem- -edy
proved to bathe right ont, for it got at
the disease, an I a few bottle s cured me
perfectly. Tue cure was a permanent
one, and I have not had a touch of the

Sufferers from Catarrh should get a
