She says that about two weeks ago four young meu of per- haps of age, rented her; two up-staira rooms, Thoy said thoy were employed by tho telephone company, hut did not give their names. Saturday afternoon a weok ago two of the young men came in, and she thought uhe heard a woman's voice thoy wont up-stairs.

Levy thinks that the othor jwo men saw Frank and told him what to Bay, IH he explained later that he had a wife, and that he had been only joking. She thinks they had also forced Miss Garrison to recognize him as her husband, sfi when they met the young lady put out her hand to him with evident re- luctance. Aliss Garrison was still allowed to retain her room alone, and on Thursday all tho inou left except "Frank." and he too, seemed to become alarmed after reading the moruuig papers, and left thu place. Mrs. Levy saw the newspaper' accounts in the evening, and hocnme convinced that her lodger was the missing girl She at once di- rected Mixs Garrison to the police station. Tho young man "Frank" came in while the tives wore iu tho house, aud told her to tell the whole story. He was arrested by the of- ficers, but it appears was subsequently, for some reason, roleaied.

Some goutlouien present said ,hoy thought I was right Tho account of the attempted suicide is about as follows: A oi: the road, somewhere near One Hundred and Twenty-fifth utreet and Eleventh avenue, noticed a young girl in a carriage driving near the track. She got out and waited some time for the train, and aa it came in she tore off her jewelry with which sho was well supplied, and after throwing it away attempted to throw horaolf in front of the train. She was arrested befora could carry out her purpose, ami wan takcu to some police stiition-honso aud to a hospital I don't remi'mbor anything more definite.

Of late, for some reason, he has uot been troubled by the police, although he has (lono no work, laying around saloons waiting for somo good job to turn up. Nothing is known of Moore. Tho police reloamid both men early Saturday, aud tin's gives golor to the impression that the family were unwilling to prosecute them in tlie courts. The theory which mostly obtains now is that tho girl became the subject of uncontrollable impulse, and sought tho com- panionship of strangers in preference to thoso of her own social standing. The girl sticks to hor original story. She says that after leaving the Fifth street car Saturday aho continued along Caroudelet avenue 111 tho direction pointed on: to hor -by the car-starter until reached the Aloxian Brothers' hospital. Two moucame from some small houmis across the street. One of them waa a blonde a heavy man. Tills man came up to hor and aaked her whoro she waa going. Sho repulsed him, wiion he rotortod: "WoQ, you neod not be so pert. I know whero you are going. It is to the convent; but come with mo, Til take you to a better placo." The young lady bocamo alarmed and started to run away, but the man caught her by tho ahonldor, and a handkerchief saturated with chloroform was held to hor face. She lost consciousooas, and when she regained her aensos waa iu a room unknown to her. There wan food and wine upon u table, and traahy booka were scattered about 6oon a woman entered the placo aud Miss Garriaon asked tha moaning of hor situation. In reup.mso eho waa addressed au Mrs, Arnold aud told that her huabai.d had hroughther there to bo taken care To tho protestations of ilias Qarriaon tho woman made no roaponso, but poured oul some wino, which waa refused by the young lady, and then wont out, locking tho door. A littlo later the man who had spoken to Miss Garrison on the atratit oamo in aud gave hor to understand that if she remained quiol no harm would bo dono hor, and he told hor to write to hor family and toll thorn that sho bo released if money woro paid, but aho was too weak to write at the timo, and he went away saying he would givo hor another oppor- tunity. He camo again Thursday, and nhe wrote a, lottor according to his dicfcition. Sho remained a prisoner until Friday after noon, when the woman who was hor keeper entered tho room and askod hor if her name wero GarriHon. Upon being assured in the aflirmative, tho woman said she was sorry ah( had boen inatrnmontal in dotalning her, ani offered to roloaue hor. She thon led iliss Gar- rison out into an alloy aud showed hor how to roach tho Third ffifltrict elation, which was near hy, Tbe theory that tho girl was not detainer against hor will is sustained by statements of diamtorcsUju1 parries. Tho cashier and wait- era in a respectable restaurant not far from Mrs. Levy's state that llias Garrison, whom thoy describe in an unmistakable manner, vis- ited their .placo daily, sometimes alono, ant sometimes accompanied by a young man. The newsdealer also testified that sho visited hia frtore Pevoral times during the weok, and Fri day morning she went thoro aloue and pnr chased a copy of which hook was found in the rooms she occupied.

Cornelius, form- erly employed gardenor and coachman for the Bliss family, and Adolph Anderson, life-long acquaintance of CorueUua_ In hia affidavit Coruelius avora that lie was on very intimate terms with Miss Livingstone at Toms river N. J., beginning in March, and that he frequently, thereafter met her at various places by appointment Ho Bubslautiutes hia assertions by the pro- duction of about fifteen letters, alleged to have boon written by Livingstone to him, all of which aro included in tho papers before the court Tlie following ara a fow extracts from some of the loners; "If Mr. B. dueaning Mr. Bliss) does notcomo home to-t.igut, go up very early to tho bluo- rooui, in order to rise at About lio'clock you can go to your room or sleep ou the sofa.

On the facts coctiined in tho above letters, which were identified by -Mr. Fleming as in the handwriting of Miss Livingstone, he expocto to get a reversal of tho decision, and to have her indicted for perjury in stating that ahe never had intercourse with any other than Fleming. In his affidavit Conielina a.iys: "The plain- tiff, Alice Livingstone, was iu the habit of writ- ing mo letters aud putting them in my for mo to see and receive, and it was understood between us that she was to put all her com- munications in writing and and leave them under my pillow, and 1 would find them The lottc'ra and writings which aro annexed are iu hor handwriting, and aro a few of the letters and written communications I have re- ceived iu tho manner described.

J went there, aud Alice and I woutoutforawalk She then began to tell nio about thin case, and wanted mo to testify That 1 told her 1 could not do that, aud then she asked me not to do her any harm." Tho girl is of that illustrious family of Liv- Ingatonen to which belonged Hobert Living- stone, Mr. JelTeraou'u minister to France, aud Edward Livingstone, Mr Jackaon'a secretary of state It seems that the girl was born on tbe Livingstone manor, the very apot where Gen. Montgomery aud Kobort Fulton spent their time after intermarrying with tlie Liv- ingstones. Livingatone, too, was a framor of the declaration of indepeudenco. This girlap- pears to havo a reatless mother, who, after be- coming a Livingstone, waa not satisfied with seeing her name iu the papers at tlio frequent fashionable weddings in New York, where everybody acorns to bo named Livingstone on. one side or the otbcr, but aho went off and married another man, whose name not being Livingstone, soon became ropulaivo to her. Sho drifted around from hotel to hotol suppos- ing that everybody hero wanted to marry a LivingHtono of some kind The girl waa intro- duced as Miss Livingstone at tho Everett houao the Sprigler house, and various other places; but such was tho corrupt character of this age that the word Livingatone excited none of those surprises which it had beou wont to raise among tho pai-voua families of the motropolis from the oarliout tiuics._ So the mother was looked upon as a withstandiug ahe carried tho grand name of Livingstone upon her shoulders. ttndden Death of Fort.
