TnE WASHINGTON CRITIC, TUESDAY EVENING; MAX
THE TOWH'S PHOTOOrtAPH.
The denlli of Illslinp, the mind

Jttoplo it hcenc enacted In the lintlonal
Tlientio nbout three yenrs ago. Anna
Kvn Fny, with whom ho wns nt ono

on Sunday evening, lllslion was In Iho
city on his bildnl tour, nml 11 becniun
noised nbout town that ho Intended to
bo present and expose some of her
tricks. Whether or not it was simply n
clever advertising scheme will pcrlinpi
never be known, but tho rumor had tho
effect of drawing ono of tho largest
audiences over seen In tho house. Tho
mind-reader and his bride were there,
occupying scats tndto close to tho stngo.
For nn hour he kept quiet, simply
tduugging his shoulders now and then
nnd smiling quietly. At Inst tho old
familiar Illusion of calling out tho mini
beis of bills held In tho hands of somo
into In tho nudienro while tho per
former wns enclosed In tho cnblnct was
tried, nnd several times successfully.
DUhop wns on his feet In nn Instant,
nnd tho house wns ns quickly In an up
roar. Ho took from his pocket n big
roll of bills, and In a, loud voico offered
lo present them to Miss Fay if sho
would glvo the correct aggregate
amount, tho money to bo counted by
somo dlslntcicstcd person. In a mo
ment tho manager rushed over to whero
JHMiop stood, nna Aims a ay was on tno
stnge. Tho three were nil talking nt
once, nnd everyone In tho house com
menced to yell It wns pandemonium.
At last n little quiet wns restored nnd
the two men stood fnco to face, each
)lourihliig n roll of bills in his hands
nnd offering to glvo them up to tho
other If bo could name the amount.
Hcltbcr could do It, neither tried; tha
house saw through the wholo thing; n
pollcemnn mndo llishop sit down, nnd
tho peifoimnnco went on,
Ever since the horrible killing or tho
school tcnehcr by her husband nnd his
subsequent suicide, tho police hnvo been
tolling storlcsof tho wonderfully nnrrow
csenpes Allen hnd fiom being prevented
from cnnylng out whnt wns probably
his deliberate plan of murder nnd sui
cide. At tho time of tho killing he was
technically a prisoner nt tho works.
That morning his bondsman had with
drawn his bond nnd given him over to
tlfu authorities, tho ball-plcco was mado
out by tho clerk of tho Police Court,
nnd nt tho very moment ho killed his
wife nnd suicided tho olllccrs were look
ing for him to servo the ball-nieco on
him, If they hnd found him boforo I)
o'clock the most horrlblo tragedy In
Wellington's history would not hnvo
been enncted. As It was, tho ball-plcco
was served on tho suicide's dead body
ns it lny in tho Morgue, by touching
the document ngalust his hnnd. At
midnight the night beforo tho murder,
Policeman Coghlll saw Allen drunk on
tho street on his bent, in tho Sixth pro
duct, nnd told him that if ho didn't go
homo ho would nrrcst him nnd chnrge
him with vngrnncy. Allen stnggered
nway in the darkness. Whenlhe police
man went off duty nt 12 o'clock he told
tho olllccr Hint succeeded him on his
beat what ho had snld to Allen, nnd
advised him to nrrcst him if ho wns still
nbout the streets. Hut Allen hnd gono
home, piobably with his murderous
plan In his head, nnd know that
Ills nrrcst would defeat it. The day of
the killing Just beforo taking tho cnb
to go and kill his wife ho inquired for
Pollcemnn Ilallcy, who hu said ho
wnntcd to get even with for nrrcstln"
him somo time ngo. If he hnd found
tho policeman ho would havo attacked
him, and probably would havo been
cither killed or locked up, for ho was
despeinto that day, and the school
teacher would havo been teaching tho
little girls to-day. On tho way to the
school to murder his wife ho stopped at
Paulton's saloon for n drink. Ho was
in nn ugly temper, nnd while In thobtr
room stepped on n mnu's foot. Ho did
not apologize, and asthoman was smaller
than Allen, contented- himself with
snying to him, " your big
feet." If tho mnn hnd been big enough
trl attack Allen, who was a big man, or
if Allen had resented his profnno re
mark about his fret, there would havo
been a fight, nnd Mrs. Allen would not
have been killed. Theso aro all tho
narrow escapes from her husband's
