7 7' THE TIJIES - PniLADELPniA, SATURDAY MOKNTXG, JANUARY II, 1890. 4 MISS PURGELL AT HOME BHE LEAVES TRENTON ACCOMPANIED BY HER FAITHFUL BROTHER. PUBLIC OPINION CHANGING Considerable Donbt Xow Expressed ss to the Gnllt of Br. Kniffen. The Burglar Theory Revived. Special Telegram to The Timks. Trexton, January 10. Miss Emma Pnrcell, who is suspected of having murdered Myra Kniffen, and her brother David left this city on the 9.15 train this morning for the home of their invalid mother in Warren county. Dr. Arthur S. KniiTen, although he had partially made arrangements to go to New Brunswick with his brother - in - law, Dr. Palmer, and remain there until wanted by the court, has acted on the advice of his friends and will remain at home. The burglar theory is now receiving a great deal of attention, and it is now definitely known that Dr. Kniffen or David Purcell has had, and still has, two detectives working on the case on that theory, who roundly censure the police and claim to have conclusive evidence that the house was broken into by burglars. lioth the doctor and Miss Puroell arose early this morning and partook of a hearty meal, then the young woman, whose nerves require a sedative, sent to Druggist Patterson, who put her up a half pint of bromide of potassium. She takes this in ten - grain doses three times a day, ani the quantity purchased will last her about two weeks. A little before 9 o'clock the faithful brother, David, appeared with a coach, which Miss Purcell shortly after entered. They drove to the lielvidore Depot, purchasing a ticket for Washington, N. J., which is only three miles from the Purcell homestead. The departure attracted but little attention, and as the train moved out Miss Purcell could be seen sitting by one of the windows. She wore the same peculiar expression which has marked her face since her arrest, and if she felt any gratification in leaving Trenton she gave no outward sign or it. A CHANGE IN PtTBT.IO OPINION'. The release of Dr. Kniffen and Miss Purcell on a writ of habeas corpus by Chief Justice Beasley is the subject of much comment to - day, and the long list of representative men who signed the big bail bonds of $30,000 has had the effect of, in a measure, stemming the tide of public opinion. The doctor, has, however, received the largest share of the change in public opinion and Miss Pnreell has, it anything, lost friends. "I would judge her guilty by her demeanor. Hheis lull of craziness and has no heart or conscience either," came from an old lady. "She does not act like a guilty person. She is always the same caltn, cool and collected woman, and any woman who can look a man straight in the eye with her hand on the llible as she did at Constable Brannin when she was sworn at the inquest, never murdered a human being. It is not natural," says the next person you talk to. Thus the tongues wag, first one of confidence in their innocence, then two claiming them guilty. The police insist that Miss Purcell did the deed, but they are not now so positive about the doctor's connection with the case. A MYSTKRIOrs STRANGER. Kvcr since the murder there has been hanging about the house and starting a rumor that three men were seen about the house on the night of the murder, a big, farmer - like individual, with a very red face, cowhide shoes, a high celluloid collar and a big faded blue overcoat This morning this individual was followed into the o!lice of Lawyer H. N. Barton. Shortly afterwards the lawyer left his ofiice and was followed by the farmer - like individual to the residence of Dr. Kniffen. The lawyer rang the bell and entered. The farmer stepped in the vestibule. They remained in the house about a half hour. The Timks correspond out met the farmer out East State street and learned that he was a detective, named William Daltnn. "Are you, employed by Dr. Kniffen?" asked the reporter. " What Dr. Kniffen ?" he innocently asked. "Do you take any stock iu the burglar theory?" "I certainly do, and so would anyone else but a fool, if they had made an investigation of that house for evidence and not jumped at a conclusion. " Then yon must have more evidence than the city police to prove that burglars entered that house. Was there anything stolen, or any marks ?" " Your first question I will not answer. To your second question, yes. There are marks of a jimmy and an abundance of evidence on the inside of the house." Have you any clue to these alleged rob - bCTS?" " I have nothing more to say." "Who emplovs you, Dr. Kniffen or the attorney?" "I have nothing more to say," repeated the detective, as we reached tho corner of State and Broad streets, where he boarded a street car. A RELATIVE 6USPEOTKD. There is a report to - night that a relative of Dr. Kniffen's is the person the detective has been shadowing. This relative is the black sheep of the family and has served time iu prison for larceny. Rumor has it that he and Dr. Kniffen were on bad terms and that he was at one time ejected from the doctor's house. It is also rumored that the man was seen in the vicinity of the Kniffen residence on the evening previous to the murder, AMONG TIER FRIENDS. Miss Purcell Receives a Warm Welcome From Her Home Folks. Bpeclal Telegram to Thk Times. Phii - ltpshurg, January 10. Missrurcell reached her homo at 1 o'clock this afternoon after a ten - mile drive through the mud from this place. With her brother. David F. Purcell, she came up from Trenton, reaching here at quarter of 11. The train over tho Morris and Essox Road for Broadway would not. leave until 1 o'clock, bo they decided to drive homo. When they alighted from the train here Jfiss Vurcell's veil was raised and her face plainly told of relief and a sense of freedom. The journey had not been pleasant, owing to the many eyes fixed upon her, though passengers on the train say she bore the ordeal very well. She was in Philllpsburg only long enough to get a livery team, and then the etart for Broadway was made. In the meantime a number of residents of this place and several farmers from the country, who knew her and the family, hastened to extend their eympatbicsfor Miss Purcell in her trials and to declare themselves outraged by the charges brought against her. They all thought her innocent and she received their expressions with genuine pleasure. When Miss Purcell reached the family residence she jumped from the carriage and ran into the hourfe. where the family gave her a Joyous welcome. Her aged mother has not yet been informed of the real nature of Mrs. Knitiln's death, nor of the suspicion directed againBt her daughter. A You no; Impostor. A little girl has been calling at a number of houses In this city recently asking for assistance for her sick mother and brothers. She (rives as her home the rear of 937 Federal street. A number of packages of groceries, clothing, etc., have been sent to 927, which she designated, and where It has been discovered that the girl's statements were false. There Is no house in the rear of 927. and tbe people living at that number are far from being In need of assistance. The young impostor has been given various sums of money by a number of people, who were greatly affected by the pathetic tale she has learned to tell so well.

RACING ON WINTER TRACKS The National Leaarne to Make 3?o Opposition to tbe Placine of an Association Club In Brooklyn. The Philadelphia Clah, through their agent, Manager Charles M. Hactett, of the Kansas City Club, secured the signature of Hamilton, the brilliant right fielder, yesterday to a contract for three years. In this player the local League club have secured one of the finest of the young blood. A glance at his last year's record will convince at once that he is one of the best all - round players in the profession, and it must be taken in consideration that last season was his first year in one of the major leagues, bat notwithstanding this his record needs no apology. In batting he ranked eighteenth, with an average of .301. He took part in 137 games, was 532 times at bat, made 160 base hits and 25 sacrifice hits. As a run getter he looms up exceedingly strong, being second to Stovey in this respect, with 145 runs to his credit. While Stovey leads him in the number of times he crossed the plate, in base stealing Hamilton beats him. One hundred and seventeen bases purloined was his record, and Stovey follows with 115. In this connection, however, it must be remembered that it was not until July that Hamilton began to roll up his stolen bases, while Stovey started right in at the beginning of the season. Hamilton is considered by many to be the best base runner in the American Association, and of him it is said that he can get down to hrst faster than any other player in toe pro fession. In fielding Hamilton ranked ninth among the right fielders, his average being .903. Four of the men who lead him played in less than thirty games, and the others, including Nieol, Burns and. McCarthy, while they played in more games than he did, had much less work to do. He accepted 55 more chancesthan STcCarthy, who played in 139 games, while Hamilton participated in only 131. A. J. Reach stated last evening that the Brooklyn club would make no opposition to the Association placing a clttb in Kidgewood. "This is the attitude," he said, "of Brooklyn towards the project If, however, the League should desire to oppose it Brooklyn would then take steps towards that end. I hardly think the League would do this ; in fact, I know that she wouldn't. Brooklyn is entirely willing and of this I am certain that the Association should to locate a club at Kidgewood. She wants another strong club to help her freeze out the Brotherhood club. She will enconrage the Association in her project." In speaking of the same subject a local Association stockholder yesterday said : ' Why, Brooklyn couldn't stop the Association putting a club at Kidgewood. That club has control of Kings county only.

In the Desertion Court yesterday Henry Roseman, who keeps a licensed saloon at tbe Falls of Schuylkill, promised to give bis aged father and his stepmother a borne, and tbe old couple were advised by tbe Court to accept the offer. Maria Jones bad her spouse, Henry, before tbe bar for non - support. Henry said he was willing to live with bis wife and child and do the best he could for them. Tbe Jones family is colored, Mrs. Jones said she could not Bve With Mr. Jones. " Why not ?" asked Mr. Caven. "'Cause he 'ctared bed kick me Intode street sail." "Well. did be?' "No. sab; nehersab Mr. Jones said Mrs. Jones bad told him to go 'bout his business, as she could get along better without than with him. "She says you run a coal yard," remarked Mr. Caven. " Yes. sab ; I have 'bout three tons at a time fo' sale." admitted Mr. Jones. " How much do you realize thereby?" " I average from fifty cents to a dollar and a half per week." replied the coal merchant. Mrs. Jones was advised to make up with Mr. Jones and try and live with him. Celia Miller, with a chubbv - faced little baby, told the Court that her husband, David, had deserted her in Ireland when their child was nine weeks old. They were originally from Germany. She followed her recreant spouse to this city and had bfm arrested. He said they had agreed to separate, provided he gave her seven shlltf ngs per week. This, she said, was not enough to keep her and tne child. David, who is a peddler, told in the language of Sara' I of Posen and with ail that histrionic personage's gestures, bow he had given his wife $52 in six mouths, which wa3 as much as he could afford. He was ordered to pay $2 per week hereafter, but was sent below, as a charge is pending against bin before Liiuranu jury. STILL BURIED IN THE CAISSOI A Careless Foremau Said to bo Ke - r pons I bio for tho Disaster. Louisville, January 10. At an early hour this morning the bodies of three of tho vie time of last night's caisson disaster wore recovered bythe workmen, but further work ; had to be suspended because of the breaking i down of the pumping machinery. The upper door of the caisson exit pipe is open and the bodies of two men can be seen thrust through the lower door of the pipe. They are closely wedged In with sand and It is not probable that a hose can be brought to bear to wash away the sand before to - morrow. The oosition in which the recovered bodies were found showed that a desperate struggle had taken place at the narrow door of escape. One negro had succeeded in putting his body through the aperture, but death had overtaken him just when life was promised. Another negro had crawled partly through. His hands were fnstened by death In the clothing of the negro in front of him. showing that he had died in a desperate endeavor to ecapo first. Between the two negroes was the body of a white man. ft It appeared from his position that he was tryinir to push back some one who wns climring to his legs. The most plausible theory as to the cause of the accident is thus given by one of the survivors, Louis Crouch, and his story receives not a little credence from the superintendent of the wont. Knox, the foreman, had been seen near the key which controls the air supply and it Is believed that ho cut otF the air more than he really Intended to, causing the caisson to sink into the sand. Should the body of thetlrst white man found prove to be Knox's, the theory is strengthened, as the key which controls the air is only a short distance from the lower or last trapi and Knox was the only white man near It.

Catarrh and Dr. MrCoy and Wlldmaa Fixed Ulm I'pia Short Order. Stephen Mollfn Is a good - looking voudc man He is 22 years oM, and wrs born in the vicinity of German town avenue and Second street. For the past sixteen years he has been living with bis mother in a neat and cozy little house In the rear of 1 1 16 Germantown avenue. Everybody knows "Steve" Mullin. aa he is called up around the neighborhood of his home. He Is universally lifted, ana np to witntn a few years ago could always be seen wherever there wan any fan eolng on. He is very Industrious and has been working ior King Brother, at their woolen mills, at Ran dolph and Jefferson streets, for a number of years. He has three brothers and one little sister. About eight years ago his father died and. at be waalhe oldest child, the care of the bonse fell uptephen's shoulders. He was equal to the tannd right man (ally and cheerfully did he respond, and op to two years ago be experienced good health when suddenly be was attacked with a nnmbness in his stomach and pains in his head which compelled him to quit work for several days at a time. Mr. STtillin In speaklni? of his IIIhrhs said: "About two years a?o, while I was working one day.I lelt a dizziness come over me. It did not last long, and at the time 1 thought nothing of it, but it was not long before I felt the attack attain. This time it waB in rav stomach, and I had to quit work. I went to the Episcopal Hospital and the doctors said I had malaria. They gave me some medicine, and for a few days I felt better. "It was not very long before I had another attack, and this time ft was bo severe I thought I was going to die. I went to St. Mary's Hospital and the doctors gave me medicine for malaria. It did not help me, and I became so bad that I could not work. " For one year T suffered all kinds of mlspry. I went to half adozendoctors,anI they doctored me for malarial fever. I also went to an KnlMh doctor at the Lafayette Hotel. and he said I bad bronchitis, h'Jt he never did m any good. I became desiondent.and I oun went home and said to my mother that I didn't care if I died; life was not worth living. "I came to the conclusion that I was Incurable. My stomach constantly ached, and, while I did not vomit. I always felt like doing so after each meal. My head was fairly bursting with pain and I had taken enough medicine to stock a drug More, and I felt that I did not care what became of me. "One day I was down town with my mother and I bought a paper. I saw a statement in it from one of Drs. McCoy and Wildman's patients, and I said to her: I have adollar; Iguesslwill so and see these doctors and see what they can do forme.' It was on May 4. 18S9, that I paid my first visit to lrs. McCoy and Wildman. Dr. McCoy said I had catarrh, and he gave me two hollies oi medicine. I took It, with lit'Je hope of betiiB beneflted, and for six weeks no good result was felt I suppose I was in a terribly bad condition when I began treatment and that it took a good while for the medicine to act properly. Bat alter that time I be;;an to improve right along. ' am now feeling better than I ever have before and am nmo umkino full time after being idle one year and having taken enough - medicine, the price of tchirh would have built a hmise. 'Doctors McCoy and Wiidmandld me more good in the short time I went there than all the rest of the physicians put together. I was told that I was incurable, and I believed it. Hut the doctors, as well as myself, were wrong, and I owe my rerov - ery and good health to Doctors McCoy and Wild - man. They are the only physicians In Philadel - phiawho did me any good and I have gone to a great many that have done me no good. If It hadn't been for them.

LA GR1PPA IT CAN BE CURED The epidemic of Influenza Is now rajrlnfr In this country. Tliere is a strong probability that three - fonrtlis of the people, particularly In Iftrgf cities, will be affected by It. Prof. Lafatre.of New York, has made a number of microscopical examinations of the mucus from the nostrils of those affected with it. and has found the microbes in lare numbers. "Kadam's Microbe Killer waB then poured on them in a bottle, and another examination made In '24 hours, when they were, found to be all dead. Already over fifty patients have been successfully cured in New Virfc In from two to fivedays, by the use of the Microbe Killer. We recommend It as a quick and positive cure.
