The train which leaves Coney Island at 1
o'clock In tho morning, makes but one stop
usually, at lUth Junction, three, miles this side
of Mapleton. When It stopped half way be
tween Mapleton and Woodlawn yesterday there
was great excitement. One woman, Mary Erel
man of 194 Thirty-second street, Hrooklyn,
screamed out " There It 1st" and fainted Into
the arms of Hilly McDonald, a special police
man of Codey Ialand.
In order to understand fully what took place,
a description of the nature of tho territory In
the neighborhood Is necessary. On the corner
of Twentieth avenue and what l supposed to 1e
HUty.flfth street, Hrooklyn, In a large grove, Is
Jere Lett's house. In tho rear la his stable. In
Hi rear of that are the stable of H.J, Gal
lasher, a Brooklyn contractor, and back of this
a large open field covered with long, thick grass.
It was In this field, about two hundred yards In
the rear of Gallagher's stables, and

suicide occurred last Sunday. The spot where,
the dead woman lay for four hours covered by

Now, what happened yesterday morning when
the Sea Beacn train, already fifteen minutes
latc was tiring along at the rate, of fifty miles
an hour is described by Superintendent Richard
Larke, who was riding on the engine.
"We were going very fast," he said, "because
the crowd of picnickers were slow about getting
on and had delayed us. We had Just passed
woodlawn, the only station between Coney Isl
and and Mapleton, without stopping, and had
rounded the curve, when Fireman Van Pelt
pulled my coat sleeve and pointed ahead, over
to the left of the track. I saw what seemed to
te a tall, white figure. It seemed motionless at
first, and you may believe me or not, but I'll
take my oath that It was standing, or appeared
to be standing. Just where last Sunday's suicide
" 1 1 w us tall and shadowyllke. It had the ap
pearance of a substance gradually melting into
a filmy white nothing, and seemed to be covered
by a long white filmy veil.
"Two seconds after I saw It It began moving
nt er toward the railroad track. It moved slowly
at first, waving its long, draped arms. I could
ce distinctly, us we approached nearer, that it
motioned to us, gesticulating as one would do
vr)ing to stop a train. Engineer Mnllon then
saw It. He begun to blow his whistle witn a
nr-ccs-lon of sharp toots and put on broken.
I ho tiling didn't get out of the way. though It
v. .is careful to avoid the light of the bend lamp,
and the tralu was brought to a standstill. Jnst
as the train stopped the thing glided off the
track and skimmed along toward the woods, all
the. time gesticulating as if motioning some one
to follow. -It disappeared tn the wood.
"Of course, people on the train rouldn't un
dert'and why the train should stop in an open

tl'in, and considerable excitement prevailed.

Kiteman Van Pelt told what lie saw much as '
Superintendent l-nrke related his storj. The
engineer alo corroborated It.
A graphic account of the ghost was given by
John Myers and rx-Pollci man Maeulnnrs.
"Iwas going up to the city," said Mtrr.
"with Magulnnes. and we got on the I' hi'

Hock Island will accept no other theory, and
have offered reward of $1,000 for tho capture
of t lie wreckers.
Tho fishplates were removed with a crowbar,
which was found with the plates In the tsll

In place, so that the engineer was unable to dls

Frank Fields, '.", years old, of 205 Fifth street, ,
Jersey City, who was injured by the blowing
down of a wall at the new City Hall, died on
Thursday night In the City Hospital. Two men
were killed outright, and there Is very Httlehnpe
that Thomas Dnyer, who is at St, Francis Hos
pital, will recover.
An examination was made yesterday of the
fallen wall. It was Intimated that the accident
was due to defective masonry, but several ex
pert who examined the wall declared that the
material and workmanship were good. There
Is no doubt that if the men had not become
panic stricken when the wall began to totter,
and had remained on the scaffold Instead of
Jumping, they might have sated their lives.

Hutchinson of the New York Conference read a
paper on " The necessity of friendly denomina

Among other things he said;
" Is It not true that, notwithstanding the gen
eral respect for the Illckslts Society as n
liody of peaceful, moral people, m far as
their relations to other denominations are
considered, they do not stand alone to

considered peculiar people? Is there not a
wide difference between the special doctrinn
which they held In common and which dls
tlngnehed them as ft denomination and the doc.
trine of other denominations The Christianity
nf Jesus Christ lilibself Is the Christianity on
which Friends alone, or almost alone, have
boldly taken their stand as all sufOcletit.
They claimed for themselves and granted to
nl hers liberty nf opinion and the right and duty
to worship God according to the dictates nf the
spirit as manifested to each soul. They have
always Uwtlftecl In favor of ft free ministry, and
opposed oppression and oaths, Quakerism In its
purity is essentially liberal, and In Its tenden

the spirit and recognises differences of opinion.
The question of promulgating a slated doc

efforts were made to lynch him then, and crowds
gathered from far and near. Speeches were
made to the crowd, however, by well-known

deemed advisable to remove the negro from
Graham, and he was brought to this city for
safekeeping In the county Jail, which Is tho
strongest In the State.
Tho public outcry was so great for his speedy
execution that theOoternorof the State ordered
a special term of court to try Madklns, and he
was arraigned and convicted in two hours and
a few mlnutee.
An early day for the execution was set. and the
people In the vicinity, with one accord, demand
ed that the hanging should be public, so that all
might see Justice done. Accordingly, the County
Commissioners of Alamance county, at a meet

should be publicly hanged at Graham. Fully

William Davis, who nays he Is a clerk, nt.
tempted to steal a tray of diamond rings from
the store of John 1L Johnston & Co., 17 Union
square, yesterday afternoon. Ho was raptured
by I, h. Allen, it clerk In tho store. The dla.
monds were valued at $7,000,
When Mr. Johnston reentered his store after
luncheon Davis followed him Into the building,
Tho storeroom Is on the northwest corner of
Fifteenth street, opposite Tiffany's. On the
south side of the store Is a showcase fourteen
feet long, placed threo feet from the doorway.
The space between Ute case and the doorway Is
raited In. At the end of tho showcase furthest
from the door Is a statue of Mlgnon on ft marble
pedestal. Behind ths statue Is window front
Ing on Fifteenth street.
Johnston walked back lo his office In the rear
nf the store, and Davis, who Is understred,
dodged behind the pedestal. He carried In his
hsnd a, Gladstone bog, black tn color and rather
shabby. The bag was about fourteen Inches
long, with n wide bottom. The top when opened
fully allows an article ns wide as the bottom of
the bag to be deposited Into It, All tho clerks
were busy In other parti of tho store. Dat U
opened the spring latch of tho showiase,
lifted up the tray containing forty-two rings, and
lowered It Into tho lis g. As the rings are fas.
toned to the trny by spring catches, he could not
overturn the tray of Jewelry into the bag, Clos.
ing his satchel, lis was about to walk out of the
store when Clerk Allen saw him standing be
hind the counter. Allen called for Mr. Johnston
and ran toward Davis, The thief crouched be
hind the atntUc. He made no effort to escape.
As Mr. Allen selred him hu looked up and said ;
"Nlccday. Isn't It 1"
"Open that valise and wo will sea whether It
Is or not." replied Allen.
All (lift clerks In the store hnd run toward the
thief, and Mr. Johnston Joined them. There
was some llttlu excitement among the custom
ers, hut the whole affair occupied only a few
moments. Policeman King was summoned, and
he put Datls under arrest. He was taken to
Police 1 1 end quarters, but wns not recognlred by
any of the detectives. He will hate a heArtng

Datls is about .IA years old. He has it dark
complexion and a brown moustache. He must
have studied carefully the stnrc and the show
cases. One trav which he tried to steal contnlu
ed tho most taluablo assortment of rings lu the
store, valued from $800 down.
He gave his address as the Everett House, but
he meant the Hotel Everett, at 118 Barclaystreet
and 109 Vesey street. He went to this hotel
with a woman on June .10 nnd registered as
William J. Davis and wife. A little girl ac
companied tho couple. Clerk Carman said he
knew Davis, but that the name was ono of his
many aliases. Davis mado a living by attending

Is well known about Washington Market. His

spends but little of his time in the city. Mr.
Carman says lie has never known Davis to at
tempt so bold a piece of work.
This Is not Mr. Johnston's first expcrlcnca
with it diamond thief. Eight years ago, when
ho kept a store on the Bower)', ft thief seized a
tni) of diamonds and ran off, throwing awny
the rings ns he ran. The men who chased him
stopped to pick them up and the thief got away.
He tt as urrested two weeks later while trying
to pawn one of the rings In a Bowery paw nsnop,
and was sunt to prison for it long term. John
