WOOLSTEEN MAKES A CONPLIOTKQ CONFESSION AND ATTEMPTS SDICIDE. Itevelntlons of a Remarkable Crime In Cali- fornia. Ciirloon Conduct of the Lou An. cle Chief of Polico Wiu tlie Wo-ma- Htory Obtained Under Threats' She Said nt l'irnt Ilarlnn Shot Himself. SPECIAL. TO THE XVEN1NO WOnLD. Fhanoisco, Oct. 17. No occurrcnco in years In Lob Angeles lins nrousod exoitemont than the- rovelntiou that tho charred nntl crisped human remains in a hurnod ham nt Compton on Oct. 7 that was loft of Dr. E. C. Ilarlnn, n dentist in former days nud ono of tho sporting mon on this coast. Tho had boon inclosed in n rough box into nn plnco. beliof thnt a dreadful murder had been gained ground. From facts gathered by tho Chief of Polico the story ns it now stands is ovolved. liar-Ia- n had gradually yiolded to the fascination of gambling until ho had thrown nsido his profitable profession nnd constantly haunt- ed tho gambling hells. Ho was success- ful nt tho tables, and soon opened n plnco of his own, which becamo tho most prominent and notorious resort of its kind in town. Countrymen wero trapped within its wnlls nnd unhesitatingly fleeced. Young men about town farod littlo bettor. The matter reaching n crisis, the Chief of Police determined to \ pull \ tho gnmos. rf Just as ho was ready to do so ho learned thnt I Ilarlnn was not in tho city, and in conse- - I quenco the raid was postponed.' I Chief Darcey learned that Harlan had come I to Oompton, and with him a handsome young woman of Mexican descent. Ilnrlan, al- though married, had n weakness for . this young woman. Miss Woolsteen. Tho clew of Harlan's disappearance, when followed up, showed that ho had takon tho girl with him, ostensibly to sell her several lots. It was lenrnod that tho couplo returned to tho city in tho evon-in- g, Harlan accompanied by n stranger. Thoy went back to Compton again about midnight. At 4 o'clock in tho morning tho team which had'eonveyod tho party was returned to the livery stable from which it disappeared. THIS MUBDEl! HEVEALED. The chief, acting on his suspicions when ho first heard of the burning of tho barn, took with him to Compton Dr. Bird.who had filled n tooth for Harlan and would be nblo to his work. The box holding tho re- mains was unearthed and its contents examined. After forcing tho charred jaws open tho dentist at onco said that tho remains wero Harlan's. On tho cranium of tho murdered man wore found, at tho post mortem, positive evidence of gunshot wounds. Tho legs and arms to the knee and elbow wore burned nwny, but on the right breast, abovo tho nipplo, was a of discolored skin somo five inches in Satch and below this were indications that he had been beaten severely. On the left breast was a out seven inches long. Meanwhile Miss Woolsteen had called at the chiefs office and stated that she had vis- ited Compton with Harlan to look at some lots and they returnod to the city. Sho had not seen him sinco. Tho next development in the case was information as to tho where- abouts of Hattio 'Woolsteen and her Bister Minnie on tho fatal night. From lodgers at the house it was learned that about 3 o'clock on the morn- ing of the supposed murder the two girls, who had been out riding with two strange gentlemen, came homo alone. They drovo up to the house in a buggy, and went hur- riedly to their bedroom, which is on the ground floor. One of the lodgora helped the women to alight and put up their baggage. It was not until Saturday that tho murder was discovered. CONFESSION AMD ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. After Hattie Woolsteen had boon in custody of the Chief some days on suspicion of com. plicity in the murdor sho mado a confession nd supplemented it by an attempt to commit suicide by taking ohloroform. Sho is now hovering between life and death. In her confession Hattio admits that she and Harlan quarrelled upon the day of the mur- der, and says sho upbraided him severely for his duplicity nnd deception. Finally, after he had told her ho oould do nothing to right tho wrong ho had done her, as he was already married, sho took a pistol from the folds of her dress and, in tho neat of pas- sion, killed him. Sho says sho aimed at his head , but sho docs not know where the ballot struoK. She thon hoisted the body from the bnggy, dragged it to tho barn and set Itho body and tho barn on fire. After all is said, thocaso has somo very peculiar not to say mystorions features. Public opinion is on the girl's side. Sho was kept in oloso confinement for four days by the Chief of Police Reporters wero not I illowod to see her. At last thoy took out a I tvrist of habeas corpus in order to obtain on interview with her. So soon as tho Chief heard of the proceed- - ings he had a charge of murder Bworn out, and Hattie was taken to court, whero the nature of the charge was explained to her. B She was groatly terrified nnd pleaded not guilty. Whon sho got back to jail she con- - lessed and tried to takejher life. H TWO VEBSIONH OP IT. H Tho chief says the girl told him two storios H of the murdor. Sho said that as she and Hurlan were out riding on the road to Compton, in B the darkness of the night, sho made a solemn B Appeal to him for simple justice Tho man fA tried to ward off her direct question, \ If ho m intended doing right by her ?\ but urged JM on by her wrongs, and sustained by her sense B . of what was duo her, she at last compelled V him to say that he could make no reparation. SB He was already married and 'tho girl was ! without redress. Ho far her tale has been been substantially tho same. The twovcr-- B stons of what followed aro given by tho Chief: First sho said that, touched by L her awful cry of grief, whon told that H the man who by posing as unmarried and m holding out hope of correcting hor weakness m it the altar, had deceived her. Harlan drew B a revolver from his pocket, put it to his head And fifed. Death was almost instantaneous. Bhockod and frightened, all alone in tho Bf night, tho girl did not know what to do. fJ Finally, recalling a barn near Compton, MV Bhe managed to drivo tho buggy there BV She then succeeded in lifting the dead form P'.Jler lover and, dragging it into the barn, H laid it on a heap of straw, and taking a match IPM from the man's vest pocket, set fire to tho J combustible pilo. Her only thought was to get rid of all ovidenco of the horrible deed. then returned to Los Angeles and took K the buggy back to the llvory stable. After B Hattie had told this story sho asked tho Chief ' BW if he thought it a good story, or what kind of ASk a story would take best in court. Sho wan VB told bluntly to tell the truth. ;JM . .\ Well,\ she renllod, \ whon Harlan drow JH his revolver he said to me t tfV ' Hattie, you had better kill mo or I will ' ?& kill myself.' Bhe then said, \ I will,\ pulled ont a pistol JiJjW pf her own and sped the bullet through Har- - lan's brain. 9m Hattie is far .from pretty. Sho has plain, irregular foatures and a sallow complexion, yot thero is somothing striking about tho Blight, girlish figure. People in Los Angolcs think that tho girl was prompted to suicido on account of tho shauio of oxposuro of hor character, and not because sho was guilty of murder. Thoy soy her confession Was obtained undor throats. BROOME C0UKTY'SDEM0CRATI0 ROW. New York Cnstoni-IIoiin- n Kmployecn Accused of l'crnlrlotni Activity. Hccordor W. F.

Thoro nro two Democratic county tickets in tho fiold and two Democrats nro running for Assembly. Broomo in n Republican county, and if the split in tho Democratic party continues I nin certain thnt it will cost the Stnto tickot hun- dreds of votes. Tho entire trouble lins been caused by tho ' perniciousactivity' of Fodirnl office-holder- s. They havo used thoir posi- tions to control caucuses nnd ovornwo dele- gates to nominating conventions. Tho honest Democrats of Broomo County aro thorough, ly disgusted with tho office-holdi- ng bosses. I hnvo laid boforo tho Stato Committee a mani- festo signed by tho most prominent Demo- crats of our county, protesting against tho usurpation and bossism of tho Federal offic- eholders.\ Tho manifesto is n long ono. nero are somo extracts from it : \ For about two weeks precoding tho Democratic Convention, First Doputy Collector of tho Port of Now York. Ohnrlcs Davis, Mr. James 0. Truman, of tho Treasury Department, and Messrs. King, Davidson, Leo, Terhuno, Tuttlo, Larkins and Snllivnu, of tho Now York Custom-Hous- appointees in reality of Mr. Davis, spent their timo in efforts by overy speoios of political cajolory, entreaty, intimidation, triokery and chica- nery, in short, by all tho tricks of tho most unscrupulous partisan politics to manipulate tho pnmnrics in tho interest of Mr. Davie. Tho Postmnsters throughout tho county wore gcnornlly similarly employed. \The Democratic County Conven- tion was Democratic only in name. It wns tho fruit of Custom-Hous- o intorferonco in its primaries nnd wns run by Custom-IIous- o in- terference whon assembled, for no other pnr-pos- o than to give a fictitious and fraudulent vindication to Collector Davis. \ How can clorks be expected to be efficient in tho Custom-Hous- o at New York when they spend weeks in Broome County in running caucuses and conventions? \ Oortainly eight men from tho Now York Custotn-Hous- e, besides Deputy Collootor Charles Davis, were there before and during tho conventions. Since Juno Mr. Davis has spent moro timo in this county than in New York.

The leaders of the Progressive Labor party say that bo far as thoir party is concerned, there will bo no disturbance nor provocation for one. Thoy have Troearof trouble from the Georgo men, but do fear police Interfer- ence. They hnve been warned that thoy will have trouble.

Until last ovoniug it had been intended not to havo any speaking at tho meeting, but to simply meet quietly, adopt resolutions of protest condemnatory of tho action of tho police in their raid on tho meeting of Oct. 8, and then quietly to disporso, on the ground that free speech was domed. Abbett. of Now Jersoy, ex. Sonator Thomas 0. Piatt and it present United States Senator, whoso name is with-hel- wrote to tho Progressive Labor party Executive Committee expressing their indig- nation at tho polico Intorferonco with the former Union Squaro inoeting, and offering thoir voices at meeting. Ileplies wero sent to these letters that thero would bo no spoechos. At last evening's meeting of the committeo it was decidod to have speeches. It is expected that these gentlemen will bo present together with sovnral othor citizens not in sympathy with tho Progressives, but who are desirous of condemning polico interfer- ence with peacoful gatherings by lending their presence to tho protesting meeting. Chairman Shovitch has issued a proclama- tion to those who attend the mooting to bo peaceful, quiet and submissive oven under insult or indignity, nnd to quickly disperse at the first symptom of troublo. Tho Central Labor Union's plan of an internal Police Committeo will bo followed so far as possiblo, and ono man in each ono hundred will be provided with a badge indicating that ho is a meuibor of tho Police Committeo. Tho Central Labor Union last evening votod that no flags save the Stars and Stripes should be carried by its subordinate organl. zations in theparado and at tho meeting this evening, but the Socialists of the Progressive Labor party deolare that thoy will not bo dictated to by anyono or anv body in tho mat- ter, and they will carry tho rod flag, which signifies to them the bloodklnship of all la- boring mon. Tho Georgo Convention which will assemble also this evening will be asked to adjourn and take part in the demonstra- tion, but little hope of thoir compliance with the request is oxprossed by tho Progressive leadors. While the instigators of the moetiug are busy, Supt. Murray is not idle, and he has made careful preparations for any omcrgenoy. While he says he expects no troublo at all, he will be in readiness to meet any trouble that may arise.

Klabt Feet In Diameter nnd I'nrty-I'lv- c Hun- dred l'oands In Weight. (fYtm tK Manektiler (lTft(7.) TYirt'.) Tho Queen's jubilee has been tardily celebrated In a novel fashion at Denby Dalo, and hnd It not been for tho disorderly behavior of the people tho event would havo been a complete succcst. Denby Dale has for a long timo been celebrated for Its pies. In 183 thero was ono bakod In commemora- tion of the recovery of Georgo ill.; another was baked In 1815 In honor ot tho peace; another In 1W3 In celebration of the repeal of the com laws, and now a plo hns been baked which la described as unequalled In tho annuls of It la rocorded of tho last plo that It wns put on a plut-for- whloh gave way, and the plo slipped tu tho ground; that a crowd of ls.ooo pcoplo surged for- ward. A scramble ensued, and iitmcl a wild tur- moil tho stage was utterly demolished and the plo flung to the winds. Something llko this, but not quite so bud, occurred ut Denby Dalo. A tremen- dous crowd of pcoplo nocked from Ilradford. Iluddersfleld, Ilarnsler, Pcnlstono and tho small villages within a radius of eight or nine miles of Denby. Ileforo noon the people took up a position outside the barriers which had been erected to keep off tho crush, whllo tho old pcoplo of tho vil- lage of Denby Dale and the school children of Denby, Denby Dale and Cumbcrworth wero being served with portions of tho pie. The baking took plaoo In u spoclal oven. Tho plo wns tt feet In diameter and s feet deep, and con- tained 64 stones of flour, 1.8.10 pounds of beef, 10 pounds ot mutton, 180 pounds of veal, 1M) pounds of lamb, 220 pounds of pork, ISO pounds of lard, M pounds of butter, 83 couples of rubblts, 8 hares, 43 fowls, 40 pigeons, 12 grouse, ai ducks, 4 plovers, l turkey, 5 geese and loo small birds, together with BO eggs and 40 stones of potatoes, 40 pounds ot beef suet and 40 pounds of dripping. Tho baker was Mr. F. Workman, of Halifax. The plo weighed about 4, BOO pounds. In tho morning It was taken on a stono cart, drawn by ten horses, to a Held called Norman Park, lent for the pur- pose. When the pie reached the Held It was taken Into an lnclosuro and left thero for In- spection. It was Intended that when tho old peo- ple and children had got seated, Mr. Henry llrlerly, the chairman of the committee, should make u little speech, but this waa cut short, for directly the plo had been taken under ono end of tho lent In which It was to bo served to the people, tho strong wooden barriers against which tho crowd pressed gave way, and multitudes rushed Into the tent up to the stone cart, a scene of great confu- sion ensuing. In vain wero the people appealed to. The stronger the appeal the more they rushed Into the tent, and the st rapidly dlsap- - being either given or forcibly takon away, t waaooUlllapromUt) bad been made that when the old people and children had been served the pie shonld be brought Into the field ami distributed, that the hungry mob could bo appeased. CRUEL TO PROFESSIONAL WOMEN. Horlnl Might Pnt Upon Thriit by member of Their Own Hex. I From IK4 CUcaga Jfafl.J A common-sens- o woman, who puts M. I), after her name, told me this the other night: \I havo but one objection to being a professional woman that ls.ltho peoullar estimation In which my own aox holds me. I know thoy don't mean It, but I foci It sometimes until I have to turn my face to conceal tho flush on my cheeks. Do you know that the average society woman acts as though she thinks that ono of her own sex who has a profession has no social rights? This average society woman would not admit this, of course. And perhaps sho doesn't really mean It. I would sometimes like to put on a dress from the dressmaker' latest pattern. Hut If I do, my pa- tient looks at me In a sort of inquiring way. I think sometimes If I should follow the style of Mrs. Dr, Mary Walker that somo of my otherwise good patients would llko it better. Why la It; I am not railing against ray own sex. Bollevo me, I would not be a man If I had tho power to make the change But women are so cruel without In- tending to be. A friend of mlno asked mo to at- tend the reception lasit Wednesday night at the Columbia Theatre, and 1 went. Whllo I was thero I was constantly reminded by his other lady friend o( my profession. I was constantly appealed to as to ray onlulon of tho effeqt of an exposure which her own-loll- had cre- ated, and when we went out of the theatre I had to go homo with her and leave a prescription. Sometimes I am asked out to dlno. and my hostess Inquires of me If I think her own food Is good for her. She doesn't think of my health. 1 am a pro- fessional woman. How often my heart has ached at this treatment. I know that somo professional women bring this upon themselves. Hut thoso of us who would like occasionally to take a woman's hand for some other purpose than feeling her pu'so are stared at If wo do It.\ Over the Hen to Ilcr I.ovrr. ( Vuraf( (.Mich.)

Tho big ship with a man iu uniform walking up nnd down tho pier to koop himself out of mischief, for ho sorved no earthly purpose, was tho United States stcnuiHhlp Minnesota, and tho boy wns going on it to bo imlontnrcd.to Undo Sam until ho nttnined his majority. All tho romoto points of his googrnphy flitted through his imagination ns ho strodo up tho gangway. Ho felt thnt ho wns taking tho first steps of his journey to parts unknown. His fnther walked calmly by his sido. Thoy wero shown to n 'Httlo room, big enough for threo or fourpersonH to got into if their ribs wero strong, and a good-nature- d looking naval ofilcor received them. Tliis was Joseph Murthon, Lioutennnt-Commnnd- of tho Minnesota nnd Recruiting OOlcor. With a quick glanco that travelled from tho boy's hair tu his toes in sixty seconds, the first part of tho examination was satisfactorily finished, for tho applicant did not try to look iu two dlfforont diroctions at the samo time, his logs wero not inclined to bo the poriphory of n circle, and ho easily roso abovo a height marked with pencil on tho partition. Ho could read and writo. So ho met tho not too exacting requirements in point of education. Then tho youth was taken off to tho ship's doctor and underwent a thorough examina- tion. Ho was sound, his teeth good and ho was not troubled with color-blindne- nor varicocolo, which, strange to Bay, is ono of tho most common defects in tho applicants. So nnother point was favorably settled. For- tunately, too, ho hnd not caught cold in straying around on tho wharf. If ho had sniffed or croaked with a sore throat, he would havo beou sent off until his cold was gone, for tho boys must bo ns Round as nuts. Then came nnother test. Tho boy was token out on dock and bidden to olimb up tho shrouds over the lower masthead. Somo of the urchins look up at tho dizzy height, mount tho rail, look again, say their prayers nnd go ashoro. Their seafaring is nipped in the bud. But this boy clambered up, not withtho monkoy-lik- o agility of a veteran tar ordered aloft, but without showing any par- alyzing vertigo. If he felt his head swim, ho hadthonorvo not to \give it away,\ and that is enough. Thenoxt step in tho proceedings was to trot off to tho surgoou and get vaccinated. This is dono to nil, even if they have been vacolnated, and it \ took \ beautifully. This wns tho last straw, but it did not break the camol'a back. He returned shortly to tho little room and with a Ann hand signed his namo in a good copy-boo- k stylo. His father swallowed something in his throat as he saw the pen givo nway his boy for flvo years ; but he only twiddled a bit with his hat, and then added nis own signature. Every parent or guardian has to sign an affidavit beforo n notary public, ft commissioner of deeds, or some person duly authorized to witness such a document, in which ho gives full consent to tho son's, or ward's, devoting himself to tho Government's service, and declares that ho will not claim tho money which tho boy may receive in compensation. Tho boy was now a third-clas- s apprentice Tho Government shows its paternal solicitude nt onco by taking him off to bo washed and to got his hair cut. After this ho is fitted to n dear Httlo uniform, tight in tho middle and fluent at tho extremities, and ho is a small fledgling of tho United States Navy. This is the examination through which any boy from fourteen to righteou must go if ho wishes to join this branch of his country's service. A youth from Detroit onco managed to make his way to Now York by stealing rides on trains, bogging and talking. Anyhow, ho arrived. That stripo of boy alwayH does. Ho met nil tho requirements except one. Ho was half n dozen pounds under weight. \ Well,\ Mild Commander Marthon, \ the boy burht out crying, and pleadod to bo re- ceived, lie was a sound chap and full of grit, and I felt for him. Ho was hollow, be- cause ho hadn't been fed enough. I took him to the Master-of-Arm- s and told him to fatten tho lad up. Iu a week ho presented himself to bo weighed ngain. Ho tipped tho beam at four pounds over tho weight. Ho had gained eight pounds in a wook.\ Another game boy camo from Jersey. His big too, instead of preserving a peaceful hor-izont- was humped up, and ho was rejected. Ho wont homo and got tho musclo cut that doubled his too up. Ovor ho camo, jubilant about his straightened too. When ho exhib- ited his foot, to his disgust nnothor cranky muscle had curled it up on the way across. Thero aro three grade s of apprentices nnd tho time a boy spends in each is determined somewhat by hisyenrs. Tho younger urchins usually pass a year in each. Tho pay is $9 a month for the third grado, $10 for tho second\ and $11 for tho first. They uext becomo sea- men of tho second class, and after that of tho first class. Ago nnd strength are ri quired in thoso grades, so the boy is vightceu or nine- teen when ho enters them. The pay Is ifl'J and $24 for tho two grades, respectively. From tho socond class of seamen tho petty officers aro chosen according to tho ability iliNiilnyud. lloatswuins and gunners aro tho amliitious posts to which the young sailors most aspire. Thoso offices are necessarily few, and aro filled only ns vacancies occur, Tho salary is $1,200 n year, and it ranges higher according to tho years in tho service. - - m Ilusliirn i:prrlrnrr. ni Txat Jnltgt, A pplleant (to business man) I am a graduate of Yale College, sir J llueluess Man Well, that Is no particular disad- vantage, although for the first few months you will havo to unlearn a good deal.

MUelr to Hold the Hurenu of Election TJntl After Election. Thero is no longer muoh doubt thnt John J. O'Hrion will hold ovor ns Chiof of the1 Hurcau of Elootlons until nfter tho olcctloti. His llcpublican friends in tho Polico Hoard, Messrs.

Doth Commissioners say .that thoy will voto to appoint ft successor to Mr. O'Hrion, providod that ho is n Ilepnblican and his namo is Mott. Commis- sioners Voorhis and Porter nro anxious to get rid of O'Hrion, but they Insist that Col. Oilon, who stands nt thn head of tho civil Rorvico eligible list, is untitled to tho place. Qilon 1b a Democrat. Whon tho protest was Issued by tho Kopub-Iica- n Commissioners which established Mr. O'llrien's hold on tho offlco, Mr. French re- marked: \I want tho Labor pooplo to see who nro their friends in tho Polico Board.\ Commissioner Voorhis said that in defeat- ing tho resolution of inquiry into Mr. O'Brien's misconduct tho llopnblican Com- missioners had injured thoir friend, ns the Democrats would bo forcod to rosort to othor nnd severer measures. This probably moans that O'Brien's conduct will be mado tho mibiect of judicial inquiry, and that steps may no taken to investigate tho methods of running tho Bureau of Elec- tions. Messrs, French and McClavo aro masters of the situation, and thoy mean to make tho most of it, unless Mayor Hewitt interposes with a movement to socuro thoir removal. Lut Honor to Jen. Kllparjlck.

A lively row between two men at- tracted a large crowd In Union Squaro Park at S.:w o'clock ycsteiZiy afternoon near the cottage. Park Officer Patrick Mann wedged his way through tho gathering and parted the principals, who Immedi- ately accused each other ot assault. One was Mr. A. A. Jergens, a florist, of ST West Union square, and the other Edward Lola, an Italian waiter, or 1M East Twenty-fonrt- h street. According to the stories told, Jergens was sitting on a bench with a friend when Lola and two ladles walked by. Jer- gens spoke to his friend In German, saying: ' ' Let us play mash on theso two women. \ Kola understood the language and said: ' I think yon had better mind jour own business and let respectable ladles alone. \ Jergens replied, and then the two men used their fists. In the Jeiierson Market Police Court this morning Justice Gorman fined Jergens $10 and discharged Kola. m m Where thn Eccentricity Wa. From IAi Burlington Frt iY'ff.)
