18 THE BHOOKLTN DALLY EAGLE SUNDAY, FEBRUATtY 2, 1890. - EIGHTEEN PA GES THEY CANNOT GET BAIL. Claassen and Pell Still Have Occupy Cells. Restitution to Depositors Promised Through Otic of Sir. Lclanirs Friends Sir. Staymir's Memory for Acquaintances Seems to be Bad. Claassen and Pell, the bank wreckers, waited wearily all day .restcrdaj - in United States Marshal Jaeobua' ollice in the Federal Building, New York, for tlio bail that never came. They began their search for friends in thoir hour of need about I0:;(0 A. 31., and, through their counsel and mo.isenifers, they kept it up until 4:;10 P. M. without success. They had callers in ttvoB and threes all day, and from :i o'clock on they held a eort of levee. But their callers probably had not the considerable amount of unencumbered real estate necessary for a bondsman iu ho important a ease and felt safe in going to express their sympathy. They took good eare, however, to protect their names from the crowd of reporters whom the rumor that bondsmen were to be offered had drawn. Two names were offered in the case of Poll those of his wife and sister. Both owned the necessary amount of property, but Assistant IMstviet Attorney lio - ie objected to persons whoso chief interest would be to lot Pell run away if he wished to do so, and they were refused. Xo motion was made to reduce the bail iu General Claassen'a case, liecauso no ono was found rcauy to go on even a moderate bond on his behalf. By - 4 ;30 the. prisoners had given up hope, and they wore driven slowly together to Ludlow street jail. It was a new road, indeed, to Genera Claassen, and the fact that he was accompanied in the person of Marshal Jacobus, by a Grand Army comrade who had shown a disposition to treat him considerately, could hardly mitigate the bitterness of the experience. General Claassen lookod, and undoubtedly felt, very, very blue, ifarshal Jacobus1 disposition to be consider ate of his prisoner got him into trouble with the Sew York public, and his office was kept hot with Questions ana explanations. Une of the New V'lrii afternoon paperi saw tit to come down with Croat vigor on the marshal for lotting General Classen stay all Friday nitfhi at the Astor Hon: in charge of his attorney. The other reporters than went ;o asking questions, one paper being especially aniou to show that President Harri - pon's appointee had not neglected his duty. The explanation is simple. General Classen ib 11 gen tleman and he has the appearance of an honest man in trouble. Marshal Jacobus was favorably imprc - sed by the contrast b etween his man ner and that of Pell, who defied, threatened and acted like a bully generally and got, as Marshal Jacobus said, "the treatment which n loafer deserved'' in being sent promptly to Ludlow street J .;!. On Friday ieopiiug Marshal Jacobus came to Brooklyn just after General Claassen had left his Washington avenue home, and saw Mrs. CIhahsgd. She made a detailed statement of General Claas - sen's inurements. Later, when ho had General Claassen in custody iu New York, the general made a statenn nt that corroborated that of his wife and convinced the ninr - ihal of its truth. The marshal served under General Forster in the war, and when he came to meet his old commander acting as counsel for his prisoner, ho was ready to extend any consideration iu his power, lie s:ys he f.lt n. - i safe in leaving a prisoner with General Forster. on the letter's promise to produce him. as he would to trust a child in the general s eare. It all turned out as the marshal expected it would wlisi! he left the Astor House at 1 1 o'clock on Friday night. But if he had made a mistake in his men there would now be a pretty how d'y. - do about his ears. The chief news uptown in the bank cases was the arrangement to settle all claims against the Sixth National Bank. A syndicate has agreed to meet all the batik's liabilities, and the late President Leland will reimburse the syndicate. It will cost Mr. Leland Just about the $050,000 which In got for his stock I. (it iv is hinted that the ..lock wilt be returned to him. Ti v.ili'oe interesting to see wh returns it. That Mock is about all the loot from the bunk that hasn't been traced, and there is a good deal of curiosity to know who holds it. l'he tail; about the arrest of Wallack and Simmons is quieting down. They were concerned in the campaign against the State banks, and it. win s:iid at tiie ouiee of District Attorney John li, Fe lows that no steps had been taken to secure them. There are rumors about their bfdiig wanted by the United States officers for their connection with the Sixth National, but Commissioner Shields has issued no warrants for them. President Fdward King, of the Union Trust Company, made the following statement yesterday afternoon about Leland's promised restitu tion : "I desire to state that in my opinion no one who knows Mr. Leland could question his entire good faith and honcsly of purpose ill the matter of the sale of the stock. Of course, as far as legal rights are concerned, as owner of the stock In felt thai he had a right to dispose nt it at such times and for such priocs as might suit his own views. 11c feels, however, that an error of judgment was committed by him in not receiving sufficient assurances ;is to the standing and capability of the persons to whom he sold, although nt the time he did sell be had perfect faith that they were as represented to him, and through this want, of possible eare on his part innocent parties have bjen placed in a position to suffer loss. Hence, as a man of integrity and honor, he feels tint it is proper for him to do all in his power to save them from the consequences of bis act. lie sent for me last evening anil requested me to do what I could to assist him in effecting this object. The first thing to be done is to pay depositors in full, and this is in process of arrangement. Mr. Leland has handed me a blank cheek to my order to be filled out for such amount as I deem liecesH.iry in order to guarantee the payment in full of the depositors of the bank, and at the suggestion of Mr.Tappan, who has taken very kind and effective interestiuthis matter, I have tilled it. out for J. - jO'i.oon, and have deposited that sum in the Gallatin National Bank as a guaranty to a syndicate which has been formed to take the aBsets of the hank and to provide for immediate payment of the depositors as soon as the necessary formalities at Washington can bo gone through with. There remain, then, the minority stockholders to be considered and, as I hava said, .Mr. Leland desires to do all that a sensitive man of honor can do. He has said he will be guided very largely by the advice of myself and other friends in relation to this matter." General Claa. - seii's quarters in Ludlow Street Jai: are not exactly luxurious, though they are not uncomfortable, and are a good deal better than those furnished men charged with stealing very much less money. He is in Cell No. 1!.', on the first tier, a room 10 by 12 feet, or about as big as a Hat bedroom. It has instead of the little iron bedstead ttiat lots down from the v. all on a binge, which is com - m - n iii prisons, a neat wooden bedstead supplied with a comfortable mattress and supplemented with a comfortable chair and a carpet on the floor. I'ell is in another part of the prison, and General Classsen has not yet met his Washington street neighbor, Stayner, Ives' less famous partner. Indeed, Stayner volunteered the information that he had not the ploasuro of General Claassen's acquaintance. General Olaasseu and Pell dined down stairs at a private table last evening at theirown expense, and can, of course, live as well as they please. About H o'clock Mrs. Pell drove up iu a closed carriage and was admitted to her husband's cell. The interview lasted nearly two hours. At the New York Clearing House this morning it was said that no further action would be taken in regard to the wrecking of the Sixth National, Lenox Hill, Tand Equitable banks. It wan said that as soon as the swindling scheme was made known the Sixth National Bank was expelled from the dissociation. It was the only one of tlio three banks that waB connected with the Clearing House and the only one on which the association could take action. The achou of expulsion on the part of the Clearing House shows in what light the association regards all wild cat attempts ot 'hunks to enrich themselves at the expense of stockholders and depositors. Ai.iiany, N. Y.. February I. The Alhawj Journal to - night says: "F. J. Claassen. the wrecker of the Sixth National Bank iu New York, is a former Albanian, at one time keeping a saloon on upper Broadway, near the New York Central ltailroad viaduct. When he went to New York, somo twenty years ago, he hail little or no money and gave no promise of unusual financial genius." OXFORD CLUB RECEPTION. The members En Joy' an Entertain meat in Their spacious Parlors. On the first Saturday of each month the our - l n - ,r,.,l ru, rn iicmnllu - titrlitlv 0 I Hrairn a (.veni'iitf comes and by 8 o'clock there assembles within its comfortable precincts a host of its momberB and guests, who for throe or four short hours, thoroughly enjoy the programme and amusements for which the Entertainment Committee have become bo noted. Last evening, besido the mellow light which filtered through the fringe upon the curtains, thore were sounds of aoft muBic, of sweetly chim ing bells and the guest whom fortune brought that way was indeod clad of tho opportunity of a more intimato acquaintance with their nourco and the hospitality whereof they sprung. The occasion was tho regular monthly reception of the club at which the Hoyal Hand Bell ltingerii and Glee Singors rendered an excellent programme. Tho reception rooms of the bonne wore thrown into one apartment, with noarly every chair occu pied, and that tho novelty and exeellenco of the programme were thoroughly and hoartily enjoyed the froquout applause and onooreB attested. The Bell Itimrors, consisting of Mr. H. Havart, Mr. W. J. Havart. Mr. J. H. Williams and Mr. A. Berridge, under tho directorship of Duncan 3. Miller, are excellent artists in their line. Their carillon consists of some one hundred and thirty perfectly tuned hells ranging from lljtj pounds to a few onnoes in weight. They are tuned to tho purest and moat perfect harmony with each other, mid the manipulation and concerted handling is perfectly executed. The tones produced by the bells are rich and mellow, and the hearer often foruotH that the sounds are streaming iroiu a series 01 onus imu no irom one single source of harmony. Mr. W. Hayward added much to the success of the evening by his executions upon the xylophone, metallophone and dulcimer. The gentlemen seemed thoroughly pleased with the programme throughout, which, later on, was discussed over an excellent supper, prepared by the club chef and served upon tete a tele tablos throughout the rooms. The committee to whoso efforts tho success of tho evening's entertainment was mainly due comprised Messrs. Walter K. Bossiter, E. A. Din zoy, William Hoagland, ,T. M. Bon. F. F. Vernon, W. J.

Hostilities Renewed Between Picklesville and Elm Street. FATAL MI.M.VG ACCIDENT. A Serious Disnatcr in thenircat Natting, liam Coal .Shaft. WiLiKKSiiAititE. P'.., February l. The fall of rock which took placo in the Not tingham shaft of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Company in No. 5 r.lane this morning, drove the accumulated gal 'into the gangways, where ten men had been at work with naked lamps, and an explosion soon followed. All the men were more or less :;eriousl." injured and; badly burned on the face, hands aim body. Peter fleim was cut upon the head, his hands and face were badly burned. John Orossin, with his mule, was buried beneath the falling rook. His body has not yet been recovered. William Rohurts, a driver boy, iB also nursing. John B. Humphries, a. miner. died while being repiovpd. from tho mine. His body was burned to a crisp. Joseph Dunoon, five ions, was burned on the face and hands; his in juries are said to be fatal. Joseph Jones was fa mily burned. John P. Thomas was httrnod on the. face and hands. David Fox is seriously burned and his recovery is doubtful, and Thomas Lake was slightly cut on the head. Later inquiries showed that in addition to the casualties already reported having occurred at the Nottingham shaft to - day, five man are imprisoned in the mine, and there is little hope of their being taken out alive. At the time when tho fall of rock took place. John Dunston, the fire boss, was on his way from the fifth to the sixth lift carrying hiH naked lamp. This, it is f aid, fired a body of gas which exploded with great force, shattering the gangways nnd breaking the timbers, causing large quantities of roof rock and coal to fall. The debris closed the outlet for the minerB who were in the interior of the mine rnnkiiig repairs, emtombing John Crossin, Dnvid J. Williams, John Davis, Edward Morris and an unknown man. It is not known when those out side will be able to reach these men, though it is firmly believed that they are all dead. The Nottingham Bhaft, which was tho greatest anthracite coal mine in tho world, is nearly a total wreck. It had at one time an output of .'1,000 tons a day and netted the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Company $500, 000 profit last year. ENCOUNTERED KOUGI1 WRATIIKR. Tho Hill line steamship llichmond Hill, Captain H. Ferry, arrived at Prentice's Stores late Friday afternoon. She nailed from London January 12, with a general cargo of merchandise. Hough weather wiui encountered all the way across the Atlantic in the form of hard southwest and northwest gales. On January 18, while sailing in latitude 49 degrees 58 minutes north, longitude 24 degrees - to minutes west, a very heavy gale was met with, accompanied by terrific squalls and a high running sea. At times during this gule the wind blew almost a hurricane, and in the rough sea it was very hard to handle the ship. On January 1 ft, when sailing in latitude 4! degrees 20 minutes, longitude !)6 degrees, !() minutes, an unknown schooner rigged sto&mahip. hound east, was passed. The steamship had lost her foremast, but no other damage was visible from the Kichmond Hill. VB1SCIPA1 M A It Y ,1. V1SK BU1UKI). Funeral services over the remains of Miss Mary J.

The Little English Lady Talks of Her Perilous Undertaking She is Visiting in Brooklyn. Will Study the Dread Disease. Miss Amy Fowler, tho young English woman. who arrived in Now York last Thursday on her way to Molokai, where she is to take up her life work of nursing tho lepers among whom Father Damion died, is in Huh city, the guest of mends. Miss Fowlor shrinks from tho publicity which her mission has brought to her. She has de clined to be interviewed by the reporters of New York, and for this reason nearly all tho storieH about hor printed in the New York papers have been inaccurate. Yesterday afternoon a reporter of the Eacii.e was granted an interview by her Misa Fowler requested that the placo where she is staying be kept secret, and this wish is accord ingly respected. The young woman, who possesses all the quali. ties of a martyr, is so small that at first glance she seems little more f linn a child. Her face is kindly, and the rosy color of her cheeks betokens hoalth. The features are small, but regular and well formed. They denote great determination. The little woman was dressed in a plain black dress, and when she arose to bid the reporter good by her movements wero quick and nerv ous. It has boon generally stated that Miss Fowler is a Dominican nun. This is not so. Sho is a member of tho Third Or der of St. Dominic, a religious body which is a sort of middle state between the world and the cloister. Its members are men and women who are bound by rule to dress more soberly, fast more strictly, pray more regularly, hear niaBs more frequently, and practice works of mercy more systematically than ordinary persons living in the world. Miss Fowler told tho reporter that she joined this order for two reasons. She wished to carry on her work among the lepers as one con secrated to the Catholic Church, and the Govern ment of Hawaii desire that the nurses among the lepers should bo members of religious orders. After Miss Fowler had joined the Third Order 6f St. Dominic, tho Superior General of the Dominicans, in recognition of the heroism she displayed by volunteering to devote her life to work among tlio lepers, granted a Bpecial dispensation to her. He permitted her to call herself sister, and t lie young woman selected for her religious name, Hose Gertrude. This is why she is called Bister Hose Gertrude, and that name no doubt led the English and American papers to imagine that she was a Dominican nun. "This is my first experience at being interview ed," Miss Fowler said to the reporter. "In England I managed to escape the reporters. You see, it was not known until a uay or two before my departure that I was the person who was go ing to Molokai, although for weeks before that time all the papers said that a young woman was about to leavo England to become a nurse on the leper island. On .Monday, December 30, tho Ilev. Hugh B. Chapman, the Protestant Vicar of St. Luke's, Peckham, who first interested the English public in Father Damien's work, de livered a sermon in Westminster Abbey, in which ho told of my project and appealed for contributions of different articles which would tend to lighten the lot of the unfortunate lepers. He did not montion my name, however. The con tributions were many. They coinpriso toys and candies for the leper children, material from which to make clothing, etc., and they have been shipped iu eleven largo boxeB. The English people were very kind to the un known young woman whom they were in formed was going to work among the lepers. How came I to entertain the idea of becom ing a nurse of the lepers 7 Well, I'll tell you. One Sunday about seven years ago I heard tho Ilov. Father Johnson deliver an eloquent sermon in tho Catholic Church of St. John the Baptist Brighton, on the condition of tho poor lepers. His words left a deep impression on me and then I determined that I would shave in the good work of helping to alleviate the sufferings of the poor creaturos. Shortly before that time I had bo - come a Catholic. My father is the Rev. F. Fowler and he ministers at Bath. At the time I was im pressed by Father Johnson's sermon I was too oitng to undertake such a ork as I desired and my parents, under no circumstances, would per m it me to leave them. Two years ago I went to aris and studied under Pasteur, my object being to gain knowledge that would be beneficial to mo in tho treatment of lepers. While in Paris I supported myself by attending to the corre spondence of several business firms, and I also contributed to papers and magazines reports of medical meetings. I did not graduate from Pasteur's institute a full fledged doctor, but while there I think I learned siifiicient to become quite proficient in treating the cases of lepers. All that I claim is that I am a nurse. I do not eipect to cure any of the lepers. All that can be done is to alleviate their sufferings." To the reporter's inquiry as to her plans when sue arnveu at iuoioKai miss r'owier said: "I shall begin my work in the Government hospital at Kalawao. That is tho name of the leper settlement. Besido the hospital there area few other institutions. They are for tho care of the children of the lepers. Several of my friends iu England presented to me the instruments necessary to carry on my work. At Kalawao I will continue the investigation of Pasteur's theory that the same microbe organism is found in leprosy as in the ease of tubercular consumption. I intend to try what bichloride of mercury will do in killing the microbes. I have a powerful microscope and also a camera. With tho camera I intend to take photographs of the cases of leprosy and especially of the microbes. These I will send to Paris and England. I may possibly write a little hook after I have had some experience with the cases at Kalawao. This book will be illustrated with tho photographs which 1 will take." "Will you tell me how you negotiated with thS Hawaiian Government to go to nurse their lepers 7" inquired tho reporter. "A friend in Paris, when ho saw that I was determined to make my lot among the lepers, wrote to tho Government about me, and last .September he received word that I would be accepted as a nurse. I was very glad when the answer came, but had he failed to have me accepted by the Hawaiian Government I would have gone to the leper settlement at Trinidad, for at that very time I was negotiating togolhere. Sinco September I have been busy making arrangements lor my departure from England. It took so long a timo to settlo my affairs, because, yon know, I expected never to come back. In fact, my case was like that of a person about to die. I bade farewell to my father and mother and brothers and sisters, and I think I will never again see them. I will remain in Kalawao till I die, for I will never wish to leave my patieutH. Of course, I can with safety correspond with my friends in England and Paris, for thero is no danger of leprosy being spread by a letter from au infected region. Tho day before I left England I had an audience with Card inal Manning. He iB deeply interested in my mission, and he requested me to communicate with him frequently. The Cardinal gave his blessing to me, and he told me that he was cer tain I was called especially to perform tho work I have undertaken. I also received a special blessing from the Pope." Questioned as to whether she thought that sho would contract tho dreaded disease, Miss Fowier said: " I may and I may not. From what I have learned of the malady by my studies, I think thero is not very great danger of becoming tainted. A person attending a leper who has an open wound, even a scratch on tho hand, is in great danger, but thoso who arc sound in body are comparatively safe." Miss Fowler will remain with her friends in this city for a few weeks. Sho had first intended to proceed direct, on her arrival in New York, to San Francisco, where she would take a steamer to Honolulu. The Bothnia, the steamer on which she camo from England, was delayed, and sho therefore missed her connections. She could not possibly reach tho Pacific coast in time to bo a passenger on tho next steamer to sail from San Francisco. This occasions a delay here of at lease two weeks. Miss Fowler will be glad to receive any help from the American people. She told the reporter that contributions of toys anil candies for the leper children and material from which to make clothing for the unfortunates among whom sho is going would be very welcome. Money will also bo received. Those who may desire to help her may sond their donations to her in care of II. F. Downing it Co., Warehouse Department, 615 Bcavor street, New Yom. Miss Fowler will receive a salary from tho Haitian' Government. With the monoy which she YonuK - Tien Debaters Decide a Govern mental Policy. Thero was a debate between members of the literary societies of the Brooklyn and Now York Young Men's Christian Associations in the lect - nro room of the association building, last night. Tho subject was: "Resolved, that tho Government Should Adopt the Policy of Subsidizing American Steamship Lines." The aflirmativo was supported by Messrs. Josooh W. Roc, Walter C. Burton and Charles ltobertson, of the Brook lyn society, and tho negative by Messrs. Allon 0. Ileiley, Chauncey S. S. Miller and George M. Cas - satt, of the New' York society. Ex - United States District Attorney Asa Y. Tenney was tho judge of the debate. F. J. Swift presided at tho meet ing.

Tho speaker said it was necessary to subsidize American merchant vessels, because foroien countries had adontcd tuo poucy oi subsidizing. Allon C. Iteilev spoke tirst for the necafcivo. He nrgued that when iron came into use for Rhip building America could no loiterer make shins cheaply. Jtfio Navigation laws then becamo burdensome. Instead of repealing these laws, as did every other country except Italy, stilts, bvthc name of subsidies, were deviBed to cross the bar rier these laws erected. In spite ot the subsidies the American merchant marine decreased and as early as 18(10 not a single line outside of the coast tradcra carried the American nag. He denied that any foreign country except itaiy paid siiDsiuies to tneir niercnant manue He defined a subsidy as a bounty paid to en courage trade and said England paid not a cent in this way, but did pay for mail carriage. Mr. Iteilev said it would coat 1100.000.000 In re habilitate the country's merchant marine to its condition in 18."..", and he did not think that to have the delivery wagons merely would give this country back its commerce. Mr. Tenney in deciding the contest said that it was a "magnified) t spectacle to see young men spending days and nights investigating a ques tion like this and donating it so ably." He decid ed in favor of the New York debaters supporting tho negative side of tho debate.

With regard to the statement in tho report of Fire Marshal Lewis to Commissioner Ennui that the delay attending the arrival of the engines at the lire which occurred at - 181 Washington ave nue ou Sunday last was due to the delay of tho American District Telegraph Company in send ing the alarm to Fire Headquarters, Mr. H. H. Wheeler said to an E.i.e reporter last evening: "We do not generally sond out a call for the en gines without making some inquiries. It costs about $100 every time the engines go out on a false alarm, and frequently an alarm is given by mistake. The ringer turned round too much by mistake when calling for a messenger or Bome error lio that would hardly justify the calling out of the Fire Department. In the case referred to iu Marshal Lewis' report, as it happens, wo were in no way to blame. At U :35 o'clock an in distinct call came to our oflice. At 0:50 o'clock aii alarm was sent out and at 0:54 o'clock the department was on the scene of tho tire." THE IjAMI LEAGUE'S HOXEY. Dktkoit, Mich., February 1.

V (' Mini streoc host in. I Ambulance corps. D Kim street - jki. - inUli lino. K I'icldosvillo skirmishers deployed. I ho casus belli is a question of territorial rights, tho boys of Picklesville claiming that Picklesville includes the easterly sido of Knicker bocker avenue and the Elm street men claiming that both sides of the street are included in their domain. The armies yesterday, eqnally matched, numbered about two thousand; the Pieklesvillo forces, two divisions, under command of General JohnBeirt, of 102 Central avenue, aged 17, and tho Elm street forces, two divisions, under Gen - erat Charles Engelhottar, of 195 Ellery street, aged 11 years. Johnny Schneider, aged 13, commanded the right wing of tho Picklesville forces and went early into action, or was rather drawn into it by the capture of all his pickets by Lieutenant Colonel Epaminondas Schwakham - tuor, aged 13, in command of the Elm street band of Bkirmishers. Tho first to fall in the onsot of the two lines of battle were Colonel Leonidas Vogelstein and Lieutenant Hanibal Stedefeder, of the Picklesvillians. General Seid, seeing that Schneider's command was in danger of being cut off and attacked in detail, dispatched his aide do camp, Diedrich Finnegan, with an order to fall back on the sand bank known as the Eagle's ?.cst, back of the Manhattan Avenue Railroad, beyond Irving avenue. On his way the aide do camp was Btruek with a tomato can, knocked down, taken prisoner, and the order fell into the hands of the enemy. Tho result foreseen by Gcncral Seid then took place. Schneider's com mand waB cutoff and most of them, after a terri ble resistance, laid down their arms. While Seid with the main body of his forces was pressing on the cry of ' Police'' was raised, and t he form of Officer John Ruoft looming up in the distance like Gulliver, the Lihputian armies became in stantly a rabbio rout. The ofneer succeeded in capturing General John Seid, Colonel Oscar Miller, of 28 Starr street, aged 13: General Charles Englehoffer, of 105 Ellery streot, aged 11 years, and Lieutenant Charles Hesling, of 1 43 Troutman street, agod 13, oi the Elm street army. With the prisoners were 'captured a large quan tity ot Bangs, Lean shooters and other weapons. i"dicatio:;s. Wasijingtok, D. C; February 2.
