[The following two notes were clipped together by Fort. C: 226-227.]


1895 Jan 6 / NY World, 3-1 / Fires, apartments of Adam Colwell, upper floor of 2-story frame building, 84 Guernsey St., occupied by him, his wife, and step-daughter Rhodaaged 16all were placed under arrest by the police of the Greenpoint precinct, charged with incendiarism, but after an investigation were released. Colwell, a carpenter, been out of work 2 years. Willie Carlton, his step-son, had been keeping the family. Mrs. C. told that afternoon of Jan 4th, there was a loud crash. A large, empty parlor stove over-turned, and four large pictures fell from walls, breaking on the floor. The girl there, too. When Colwell, who had been out, returned and was hearing this story, all smelled smoke. A mattress on a bed was found afire. Alarm of fire, and a policeman, Roundsman Daly, remained behind, because of mystery in the case. Said that Daly saw wallpaper near Willie C's shoulder start to burn. Detective-Sergeant Dunn arrived. Another fire broke out and a heavy lamp fell from a hook, in another room. Another fire and the house burned and the Colwells, who were poor people, lost everything but their clothes. Capt Rhodes, of the Greenpoint Precinct, said: “The people we arrested had nothing to do with the strange fires. The more I look into it, the deeper the mystery. So far I can attribute it to no other than a supernatural agency. Why, the fire broke out under the very noses of the men sent to investigate.” Segt. Dunn said: “There were things happened before my eyes which I did not believe possible. Before I left there, I expected to see my hat or boots break into flames. [C; 226.1 to 226.8. (New York World, January 6, 1895, p. 3 c. 1; not @ Newspapers.com.)]


1895 Jan 5 / Polt flames? / At home of Adam Colwell, 84 Guernsey St, Greenpoint. / Herald 6-1-5-1 / That in 20 hours preceding noon of 5th, when the house was finally burned down, had been upon fire 7 times. Policemen were sent to investigate. In front of them flames burst from furniture. It was unaccountable to policemen, firemen, and the Fire Marshall. All turned in their reports. “Mystery” as to origin. Details of the individual fires. In an interview with the Fire Marshall he said, “It might be thought that the child Rhoda started two of the fires, but she could not be considered guilty of the others, as she was being questioned when some of them began.” x x x “I do not want to be quoted as a believer in the supernatural, but I have no explanation to offer as to the cause of the fires or of the throwing down of the furniture.” / Herald 7-5-4—Rhoda (aged 16) made full confession. “Policemen and firemen artfully tricked by a pretty young girl. Said that J.L. Hope, of Flushing, L.I., read of the fires and took a train to Greenpoint. Rhoda had been a nursemaid in his home, where between Nov. 19 and Dec. 19, 4 mysterious fires had occurred. Rhoda had not been suspected at the time, but now the mystery seemed cleared up. He told the police Captain, who had Rhoda brought to the station house. “But now the Captain was sure of Rhoda's guilt and he told her so.” Said that she was frightened, was “advised” to tell the truth, and “sobbed that she had started them”. According to the confession Rhoda did not like the neighborhood in which she lived so she knocked pictures from walls when her mother was in other room and then dropped matches into beds, and continued doing so after police, firemen, and detectives arrived. Said that though seven fires were reported there had been thirteen. The astonishing part is that it is not a story of a girl setting fires in parts of house where no one was, but in the presence of investigators, “slipping up behind them,” always having something burning with her, could not have struck matches without being heard.

(Globe-Dem., 20-2-6), saw a bright light southward of the course of the vessel. It was unaccountable and he called the captain. The captain was equally puzzled, but ordered the pilot to steer toward it. Then another light was seen, after the vessel had travelled ab 10 miles. “Nobody on board knew what to make of it, and it was deemed best to call the passengers. It is said that the passengers were panic stricken with the lights, which were more dazzling than their eyes could bear. Some raised umbrellas to screen it. Then something interposed“like a mountain of darkness, but over the top of it could be seen the reflection of the lights. This passed away and the two bright lights were again seen.” They flashed vividly for a few moments, and then with a rumble disappeared. The vessel went on to Grand Haven, arriving one hour and a half late. Passengers are quoted, one as saying that he had expected never to reach the shore alive. / (See Jan 4, 1889.)

Richardson, who was on the bridge, stopped the steamship. Explaining his astonishment, he said that he at first thought that some man-of-war had fired a shell at him. Recovering his composure, and finding the vessel all right, she was started ahead again. An examination of the fore pole showed a splinter of wood projecting from it at right angles, and a sailor was sent aloft to investigate. He found the pole split across and downward for three feet. The paint was burned off the entire length of the pole.” “Directly after the explosion a very heavy rain set in, lasting about twenty minutes. Then the rain ceased, the fog lifted, and the sun came out brilliantly for about thirty minutes, when the fog again surrounded the vessel. The meteor, or whatever it was, came from an easterly direction. At the time, the wind was light from the south. There was no lightning either before or after the explosion.”]

[C; 276.1, 276.2. Vaughan, John Williams, Jr. "Phenomenon in Connection with a Well." Field, September 14, 1895, p. 476. "On Saturday morning the pump worked us usual. About twelve o'clock the maidservant worked it, and had great difficulty in getting about half a bucket of water. When Mr Watkins came to dinner she told himt about the want of water, and after dinner he went out and tried the pump and failed to get any water. He then unscrewed the top of the pump, and poured down a bucket of water to make the sticker act; but no water came, and he distinctly heard a hissing sound in the well after the water he had poured in had gone down. Nothing more was noticed until about 8.30, when the pump-handle worked itself up and down for about five minutes." "All was again quiet until about ten o'clock at night, when the handle again worked by itself, at first gently, and then furionsly. The house began to shake violently, and the plates and dishes to rattle on the dresser. Mr and Mrs Watkins were so much frightened that they rushed upstairs to get their children and servants out of the house. Mrs Watkins got the children down, while the husband went to call the farm servants, one of whom slept in a room the window of which was just above the pump. Having succeeded in awaking him, they looked out of the window and saw the top of the well (which was covered with heavy oak planking and about 3 ft. of clay and pitched) blown up into the air. The heavy iron pump was thrown bodily into the air higher than the eaves of the house, and a flash of blue flame came out of the well. The pump fell back into the well and was again hurled up a considerable height, but not so high as before. and then all was quiet. Mr Watkins is certain there was a lot of water in the well when the pump fell back into it, as he distinctly heard the splash; but when he examined the place, about an hour afterwards (he was afraid to go near it before), the well was perfectly dry, the water having completely disappeared, and there was a most suffocating smell of sulphur all round. On Monday morning, Sept. 2, when I myself inspected the place, the bottom was perfectly dry. and the pump was lying broken about halt way down the well." See: 1897 Ap or May, (C; 335).]

Dec. mit einem sehr guten Merz'schen Refractor von 61 mm Oeffnung wirklich einen Cometen beobachtete. Auch sah ich, ebenso wie Herr G.J. van Dyk, der anwesend war, sehr deutlich einen verdichteten Kern, der viel heller als der Schweif war. Herr van Dyk sah den Kern etwas elliptisch, während ich eine runde Form beobachtete. Es kann kein falsches Bild gewesen sein; es war sichtbar, wenn Venus so weit als möglich aus dem Felde gebracht wurde. Wir constatirten, dass die Entfernungen von Venus ganz übereinstimmten mit den Vergrösserungen der angewandten Oculare. Die Zeit war viel zu kurz, um eine Bewegung constatiren zu können. Der Schweif machte mit dem Horizont nach oben links (für das blosse Auge) einen Winkel von 35 Grad. Horizont ganz frei. Später habe ich alle Lichterscheinungen bei Venus genau studirt, ohne eine Spur von einer Aehnlichkeit mit einer cometenartigen Erscheinung zu finden.'" Du Celliée Müller described the object seen in his telescope as a comet with a tail 3 to 4' in length, (at an angle 35° from the clear horizon), shortly before setting in daylight. There was a star with 9.55 magnitude, at 209° 43' (13h 54m 28s) and -8° 48' 40", (above, and setting shortly after Venus on that date), close to the comet's reported position at 208° 40' (13h 54m 40s) and -8° 47'.
