WHY DID THEY QUARREL?
MYSTERY AROUT THE DKrtORARI.E
TRAGEDY AT FORT MONROE.
The Fact thnt Young; Ruins nnd His
Friend Hannegan Went Down to Sco
Some Yonng indies Suggests un Ex
planation What Is Said of IlalnH by
Those Who Know Him Ho Generally
Carried a 1'lstol.
The death of Edwnrd Hannegan at the
bands of his intimate friend, Thornton J.
Halns, sou of Col. Peter C. Halns, has fur
nished the aristocratic circles of Washington
society, and especially the Army element, with
a decided sensation. The meagre details. of
the affair which reach this city are very unsat
isfactory and do little toward solving the
mystery with which the circumstances of the
6hootIng aro surrounded. But little faith is
placed in the story as sent from Fort Monroe,
and the friends of both the principals are
speculating as to the true de
tails and motive for the deed.
That there is more behind it the bare fact
that a quarrel between such fast friends could
have resulted as it did goes far to show.
The knowledge that the only telegraph station
at Fort Monroe Is under thedlrect supervision
of the Army ofllcials at the Fort, and that
they could entirely control the character of
the message sent and received,- lends addi
tional credence to the belief that owing to the
prominence of those immediately concerned
the true circumstances are being withheld.
The object of the young men in going to
Fort Monroe Is known to have been to visit a
party of young ladies from this city, who are
spending a few weeks at that resort. The
young ladies are all well known in thfs city,
where they move in the best circle of society,
and most of them are daughters of promi
nent Army officers. For some time this trip
has been proposed by Uains, who invited two
or three other young men to accompany him.
None of them would or could leave the city,
and the trip was about to be aban
doned. Last Monday, however, Halns,
or "Tony," as he Js known among
his associates, visited Ned Hannegan at
his office four different times in order to in
duce him to take the trip. Ho finally per
suaded Hannegan to go and hurried prepara
tions were made for the departure. They
packed what clothing they needed and putting
It in a carriage drove to the river. Ac
companied by a single colored servant, they
boarded Mr. John Paul Jones's sloop Signet
and set sail. It was said yesterday that the
yacht was taken without the knowledge of
the owner, but whether this is true or not
cannot be learned. Head winds prevented a
quick trJp and it was Thursday, one day be
fore tho tragedy, when they reached their
Conjectures as to the real cause of the trou
ble are numerous, but one seems to find the
most credence. It is surmised by many that
the shooting occured on the yacht while -a
party of young ladles were present, but
whether this is true or that there were no wit
nesses to tho deed the gpncral opinion as to
tho origin of tho affair is the same.
Mr. Hannegan has been the attentive ad
mirer of a young lady who, it Is said, had no
fondness for Tony Hains. The latter Is a
person who is very decided in his opinions,
and expresses them without restraint.
It is believed that Hains made some remark
about this young lady at which Hannegan
took offense, as he was a younc mau who
would resent an insult. Ho may have threat-
eneu, out no was unarmed ana could not
have inflicted much injury, as Hains Is said to
bo greatly his superior 'In physique. The
shooting followed. Two shots were fired, ac
cording to the telegram, the first one glancing
from tho right arm and the second entering
tho breast near the heart, causing almost im
Hains, after sending the following telegram
to his mother, surrendered himself to CoU
Frank, tho post commander:
"I have Bhot Ned Hannegan. He threat
ened to strike me."
The receipt of this message by Mrs. Halns
was tho first news that reached this city of tho
sad occurrence. Tho mother was prostrated
with grief, and is still very much overcome.
A little later Mr. Duncan Hannegan received
the dlstressinc tidings of his promising son's
death. This Is all that tho grief-stricken
parents could learn of tho affair. Although
Mr. nannegan sent several telegrams to Fort
Monroe, he received no answer. Yesterday
afternoon, however, the postman delivered to
Mr.Hannegan a letter which his son had written
the morning of tho day he was killed. It was a
touching Incident, which greatly affected tho
bereaved father. Last night Mr. Hannecran
left for Fort Monroe, accompanied by An,
drew A. Lipscomb, who will act as his attorney,
and younj; Mr. Bivins, a mutual friend of
Hannegan and nalns. They will probably
Col, Peter C. Halns, tho father of Tony, was
in attendance at tho alumni banquet at West
Point when he received his eon's telegram.
He Is expected at Fort Monroe to-day. The
families of Col. Halns and Mr. Hannegan have
been on tho closest terms of intimacy for
years and their acquaintance has been of the
most pleasant character. Tho young men
were bound together by the strongest ties of
Young Mr, Hannegan was a man whom
every one liked. His gentlemanly bearing and
pleasing manuer.comblned with his ability and
intelligence, made him very popular. He was
a member of tho University and Columbia
Athletic clubs and was employed in tho Gen
eral Land Office. He lived at 1117 Seventeenth
street with his father and a younger brother.
His mother is dead.
"Tony" Hains's reputation is that of a self
willed, fearless young man with great deter
mination and rather wild habits, He is about
twenty-five years of age. He was employed
on tho River and Harbor Survey tug with his
father for some time, but was discharged, it is
said, by his father himself. His wayward
course has caused both hl6 mother and father
a great deal of sorrow and anxiety. Ho
always carried a heavy cane, and, it is said by
those who know Ltm well, was constantly
armed. Even when attending a danco his
pistol was within easy reach. Every one in
tho city awaits with curiosity tho outcome of
the unhappy tragedy.
That Halns will never be punished Is tho
general belief among those who know his
relations with man v prominent social lights In
this city. Ho is said to have had a great fond
ness for married women, and tho cause of his
carrying a weapon isstatedas being that sev
eral irate husbands, with the affection of
whoso wives ho has tUfled, have threatened to
shoot him. It is related of him that while at
Norfolk last summer ho becntno unduly Inti
mate with a married woman. Tho husband
discovered tho situation and declared ho
would kill him. After this Halns carried two
Elstols, and for two weeks did not dare to
athe, as ho feared the result should be ox

One of young Hains's most intimate friends
was Harry Martin, the young man who at
tempted to break into tho White House last
winter while delirious from drink.
Fort Monroe, Va June 13. Thornton
J. Hdins, who shot aud killed Edward A.
Hannegan, was anested last night and car
iled to Hampton jail. He apppared with
councel before the coronei's jury this morn
ing and tho case was "posponed until his
father arrives. He Is expected to-night. Han
nogan's remains were turned over to an un
dertaker to bo embalmed. It is impossible to
get the details of the quarrel. It is supposed
to have been in regard to the management
of the boat. The two young men were out
in the roads sailing when a heavy squall
came tip. Hannegan was rowing and Hains
scullink when the shooting occured. Two
shots were fired, one striking the right arm
and glancing off. The other penetrated near
tho heart. Hains sculled the boat ashore
and came to the hotel, wheie, after telegraph

tho fact that tho strong adverse American

DRAIN OF GOLD ENDED.
More Confident Feeling and nigh or Fig
ures in Wall Street.
New York, June 13. Tho stock market to
day displayed more activity and more strength
during the two hours of business than nfc anv
previous time during the week, and pilces at
tuu ujuoo wore j;cuuruuy m, iao nignesc points
since the close of last week. Tho sentiment
that the drain on the gold resources of tho
country has entirely ended, at least for the
present, created a more confident feoling
in speculative circles and the effort to cover
shorts this morning with a Httlo new buying
mado tho liveliest and strongest market for
somo time. Tho expectation that the bank
statement would show a material Increase in
tho surplus reserve was not disappointed, and
a gum ui uver $o,uw,uuu piB mac item at
over $10,000,000 again. Tho dealings in tho
market, however, presented no marked
change from those of tho provious days of
this week and wero still confined principally
to tho grangers, industrials, and a few other
stocks which have an international market,
although tho foreign operations wero
insignificant. Tho demand from the
shorts was sufficient to mako a rather sharp
upward movement in tho first hour, Union
Puciflc leading the advance, but followed
closely by St. Paul, Burlington, Rock, Island,
Pacific Mail, and some others. Tho general list
also developed 6omo special features, and Jer
sey Central, Evansville and Terro Haute, and
one or two others mado sharp gains on small
transactions. Tho issue of the uank statement
confirmed tho expectations and while there
was no further material upward movement tho
best prices wero well held and tho closo was
made at the highest figures, though quiet. The
final changes show gains all alongtho lino of
large fractions, and Jersey Central and Union
Pacific aro up 1J each, and Pacific Mail 1 per
cent. Railroad bonds were comparatively
active and retained the firm tone developed
yesterday, with a revival of interest in tho
Aitcheson incomes, though there wero, as
usual, no material changes in quotations es
tablished among tho active issues.

Tho admission that tho Princo of Wales has
