As the rOBult of. i recout court
martial on tho U. S. 8. Philadel
phia, Benjamin Ritchie, a fireman
on the U. 8. S. Marion, was sou- j
tonced to ton years' imprisonment
nt San Quontin, California, his
crime being an offouso against
nature. Sinco the courtmartiul
ho has been coufined in tho Mari
on's brig in irons and was sup
posed to have been carefully
A commotion was caused on
the Marion between 4 and 5
o'clock this morning whon it was
found that Ritchie was gone. At
11 o'clock last night ho was last
seon by tho master-at-arms who
examined his haudcufTs,andthere is
not a man on tho ship who knows
what become of him afterward.
Neither tho officer of tho deck,
corporal of tho guard nor sen
trioB on duty over tho prisoner or
at the gangway know what became
of him,and all claim to have heard
no Bound or splash in connection
with his escape. That he did
escape through the portliolo of his
floating prison seems to be tho
theory adopted, as thero has
scarcely boon a suggestion of sui
cido mado. If ho escaped
through tho porthole he must
have had assistance near by, as ho
could not swim far with handcuffs
on. Tho handcuffs disappeared
with the man and the chances are
he is wearing thorn yet.
Commander Book has furnish
ed a complete description of tho
man to the police and has offered
$20 toward for his capture. The
escape of Ritchie has caused
much talk on tho flagship and an
investigation will undoubtedly be
Ritchie rated as a first-class
fireman and has been ton years in
The single gun fired from tho
Philadelphia at 10 o'clock this
morning called a second court
martial together for tho trial of
another of the Marion's men and a
boy who aro accused of tho samo
oifonBO as Ritchie. Tho trial was
not ended at this morning's scis
sion. The samo courtmartial will also
try anothor man for the hoinous
offouso of drinking a bottlo of
soda wator at the boat landing whilo
on duty. It appears that during
one of the recent shore drills the
company to which tho man be
longed backed up against a Japa
nese soda water stand, but had
not boon ordered to break ranks.
Tho man reached out behind and
grabbed a bottlo of soda and was
in tho act of drinking it when it
was knocked out of his hand by a
blow from his officer's sword.
Either the blow or the breaking
glass out the man's hand and on
getting on board he mado a com
plaint to tho Admiral that ho had
been struck by an officor. Tho
Admiral ordered him under ar
rost for infringiug tho rules whilo
on duty and at tho samo timo has
ordered a Court of Inquiry to
examine into tho action of tho
officor in striking tho bottlo from
his hand with his sword, as offi
cers are not allowed to strike tho
men under thoir command.

on Novomber 19, 1893, he revolted
the' assignment. Both tho assign
ment and the revocation were
made on lilank forms, at tho
head of each appearing tho print
ed word "absolute."
Mrs. Abell alleged that tho as
signment to her was therefore
absolute, and that he was thoroby
debai red from revoking it. Coun
sel for tho estate of tho deceased
contended that tho assignment
was not absolute, and that tho
printed word at tho head of tho
blank should not bo regarded.
Mrs. Abell was not allowed to
testify as to tho fact of her being
engaged to marry Dimond, ho bo
iug dead, but George D. Knowles
sworo that Gonoraf Dimond told
