Ii"; bo illiwrrssel. Tub 8us has her name,
t and her story Is vouched for by a
1 reliable business man In this city who remem-
t hen her as a belle In hontli Carolina. Her
f j '"alhcr was rated as a millionaire before the
; ; war. He was the owner of four large planta-
l lions, and his hospitality was famous even
; In a Suto nf plantation. His daughter was
; i-ducatcd In the best schools and was
brought np in luiur. She learned a
;, little music, a little painting and fine
needlework, and for thr past ten years she has
; turned these nrromplshmenta to account and
i i iLataged In support herself by them. Her n.e--
' I riage, which laiurri'il Iwent) -eight years ago,
was a fiaial event or Importance. Her husband
; ' died, leaving her two young boys and a com-
,' i tollable Income. The son. who Is now in Ilelli-
, vur. was sent to a Southern college. Then some j
, I 'if theinother'H Investments began to turn out
i , i badly, and In the attempt to retrieve her losses ,
her fortune was swept nun). The war had
wiped out her father's wealth and she was left I
, ' penniless.
, ' With her on she came to New York, where
i sbBinighi work unknown In the people who had ,
' known her In more pruserous days. She de-
voted herself to ilntlng and took a studio in
, Fourteenth street. Her son learned the printer's ,
' trade and worked as a comisnltor. Foratlmu
Ihry got along very com fortably. Besides tier
painting, the mother gae music lessons and did
all sort nl decorative work. A few of her
old friends lound her out and gave her commis
sions. Hut her son never has been strong, and
hit frequent sicknesses have been expensive.

, Moat of thrOOO tailors, members of the Jour
neymen Tailors' Union, who are under Injunc
tion, and representatives of the thirteen firms by
whom they were employes! before their strike,
crowded Into Supreme Court. Chambers, yester
day to hear the argument before Justice Heach
on the motion of the merchant tailors to make
permanent a temporary Injunction restraining
Ihe Journeymen from tarlousacts calculated to
prevent other men faking their places. A sweep
ing temporary Injunction had been obtained on
Aug. ft which restrained the Journeymen from
many ait. Including loitering In the streets
near the shop as pickets.
The 1100 men were formerly employeal by Iheso
Arms: John I'allerson A Co.. 35 and '.'7 West

F.mlleTnjeffort, 104 Fifth avenue; llerkler B.
Merwln, 24(1 Fifth avenue, and Peter Vrealen
burgh, 104 Fifth at enue. These Arms say that
for Ave rsrs the 000 men have been receiving
gisal wage, earning In the aggregate about
$000,000 each year. Thr flrmsdetenulnrd to re
trench, owing to the depression In business, last
June, and when the men learned that a 10 per
cent, reduction hail been onlered they went on
strike, on June 21.
Oeorgo S. Hastings, In arguing for a perms
nrnt Injunction, said that the businesses of his
illents, which the workmen were menacing, had
lieen established from Ave to thirty years. Their
wages to thr men averaged from HHtoStOn
week, and there were Instance where $75 a
week was paid. Hr contended that the Journey
men had entered upon an unlawful conspiracy
to prevent other workmen from seeking places.
He said the merchant were threatened by a
standing army which deplnyeal men to look after
each shop. They were stationed before thr shop
from early In the morning until late at night.
A regular system of patrol, signalling, and re
lief had been established, so that honest men
seeking employment could not eft it. They
threatened those seeking work and called them
scabs. Circular had been Issued and published
for the purpose of preventing other men secur
ing wnrlt In these shops. Hr said he wa sur
prised that they should defend his application
for Injunction, as they werr trying virtually In
thr courts to establish a system of hrlgandags
that might And countenance In some countries,
but whlrh is foreign to our laws. All he wanted
was to make them keep their hands off.
Charles Stcckler. who appeared for the Jour
neymen, declared that the merchant tailors
couid nut show a single act of violence com
mitted by their former employees. They' had
only wnlKfd thr streets, where they had the
right to go. and had stated their grievances to
Eersons seeking work, asking such persons to
eep awny until those grievances are adjusted.
He said the Injunction waa the most sweeping I
that had ever emanated from a court, as tho I
men were practically enjoined from breathing,
as they could not under It go for a stroll to take
the air on Fifth avenue.
The Ixisses, h declared, hail organized them
selves some time ago, with a combined capital of
?:i.000,000. to wipe out the labor union and cut
the prices for Ihe work as they saw At. Although
they tnlk of hard times, hn said, and have re
duced the wages, not one of them ha reduced
the price of a suit of clothes one dollar. Nor
have the merchant tailors who nrc not In the
combination cut down thr wages of their em
ployees. He said the workmen hnd resorted to
the onlv means which they could employ In
their flgnt agntnst such largr capital, the argu
ment of persuasion. The Journeymen, all of
whom do piece work, have to work day and
night ami Sundays to earn a bare living, even at
the rate formerlv paid. Ho said the merchant ,
tailors had made an agrrement among them- '
seltes thatauv one of them who did not stick by !
the scale of wages they had formulated should
forfeit $1,000 to thr other members.
Mr. Sleekier presented the affidavits of fifty
persons, men and women, who had gone to these
shop for work, and who on hearing the com
plaints of the former workmen refused to take
the places, and who thereupon Joined the union.
Many other affidavits were presented showing
that thr defendants had not assaulted nor Intim
idated any one seeking work. Mr. Sleekier con
tended that If thr men were guilty of conspiracy
orasiault they were amenable to the penal law,
and that whero such remedy could be had a '
court of equity could not lie applied to. He said ,
thr bosses hud thrratrned to destroy the union !
If It cost them $100,000. The union had bee,i ,
established slncr 1HU4. and had only sought to
maintain wages by lawful means.
The Judge gave Mr. Hastings until tn.day to .
submit further affidavits. If he should see At. 1
alter examining tlior of thr defendants, and
reserved decision on the motion.

nf those who have the framing and enactment of pub

It beyond the power of any to harm or question Its

The condition of W. HetU Lawrence, the mem
ber of the Century Club who attempted suicide
outside of the club house late on Tuesday night,
I still precarious. He Ilea In a private rcom at
Roosevelt Hospital, and he has not fully recov
ered consciousness at any time since hi removal
thither. Even should he live. It is possible that
he will lose hi eyesight. Dr. O. J. TansTey, who
was called lo attend Mr. Lawrence Just after he
fell from the shot, said yesterday that the bul
let had probably taken a course Just hack of the
eyeballs, and that there was great danger that
the optlo nerve had been destroyed. In that
case total blindness would be likely to ensue.
There seems to be nn doubt that business
troubles were the cause of tho attempted sui
cide. Mr. Lawrence was n promoter of various
Industrial schemes, and It Is said that hr had
lieen meeting with reverse for some time. Ills
brother. Col. S. II, Ijiwrenrr, Treasurer of the
noberts-Ilrevoort Electric Company and Secre
tary of the Economic Feed Hag Company of . '124
Stone street and l.i Astor place, said yesterday:
"Although my brother never spoke of sill
ride I wasn't In thr least surprised when t heard
nf It. For several months past he has been
troubled with melancholia, and he was o de- I
Jecled at time that 1 Used lo fear for him. He
was not only sick menially, but also physically,
as thr result of his worry. Hr had many bust
Iuisr troublr. For the past few weeks partlru- I
larlv. It sremrd as If everything was going
ngalnst him, There was fnlltirn after failure,
nnd at last he tnuldn't stand It any longer,
flint' the long and thr short of It. He'd come
down In see me at my office and we d tnlk over
Ii s trouhles. I tried to roo.se him and to rallv
him, but It didn't seem to do much good at
least no permanent good. A the result of his
disappointment and his 111 health combined I
think hi mind must have given svay nt last.
Most certainly I think he was In a slate nf
mental aberration when hr attempted his life.
Things of that kind are not rnre. you know.
" As far as I can learn my brother was nt the
Century Club all evening on Tuesday- He eat
around reading the papers, and when he went
put to Ihe sidewalk with his revolver It may
have been after brooding over his troubles. He
was a very quiet man. did not drink to excess,
and generally spent ever)' rvrnlng at the club.
nu mny depend uiHin ll that business reverse
were the prime and only cause of his act."
Mr. Lawrence Is a member nf the old Long
Island family of Lawrences. Ills father was
Hmltli lAirrsnes. tvliri s-i ...&nmA In tl.a .!

lier years Mr. Lawrence was n mcmlier of the
Seventh Keglmeuu and later became a member
of the Arm of Lawrence llm. ft Tweedy, dealers
In hatters' goods. The Arm dissolved about ten
years ago. and slncii then Mr. Lawrence lias
been engaged In various enterprises. For some
time hn had an office at 80 Hroadway. but sev
eral months ngn he removed to 44. He has been
a member of the Century Club for twenty years,
nnd was a well-known figure there, lie Is 53
nrs old and has ni-ver married.
He did not live at the Century Club, but for
Ave years past ha had a suite of four rooms on
I the top Aoornf thr apartment house nt 114 East

tract svlth Canary t: f.rderer.
i By continuing an Injunction restraining Lil
lian Itusell from singing under any manage
ment but that of Canary ft Lcderer. Justice J
ilnrtlett. In the Supreme Court, Brooklyn, yes
terday decided that she was still under contract
to the firm named, and that, while they may I
have no rontrol over her movrmentsat the pres- j
ent time, which may lie considered a part of tho I
! summer vacation period, she must live up to her I
agreement with themnhenthetheatrlcalseason
begins on Oct. 1. Miss Hussrll Is at present In
Europe, rehrarslng Abbey's nrw opera, "The
Queen of Brilliants." The derision of Judge
Hnrtlrtt was made Ina suit brought by Canary j
Leilerer In restrain .Miss Kussell from sing
ing or playing for any rival munagrr. The In
junction against her Is i ontlnued pending Ihe
trial nf the iiclion, but Is modified. She may t
sing or piny under the management of Henry
E. Abbey, or nil) body else, up to Oct. 1. but '
after that datr tho Injunction Is In force. The I
contrurt between Ml-s itunsell and the pliilmllf i
uinnugers was made In 1804 for the seasons nf
I8H4 nnd 1NII5. which means from October.
I8IU, to June. 1805, and from October, 1S05, to
.lustier llartleC held that the contract up
plles nnly tn thr two srpnrntr dramatic seasons
specified In it, and not lo the summer interval
between them. Justice Ilnrtlett says that their .
Is no proof on the part of Miss Hussrll to Justify '
a breach of contrart. The Court has grate i
doubts whether Lrdrrer Induced Miss Hussrll to
enter Into the contract by representing that be
was a partner with Canary and that the two
owned thr lease of the Casino. Justice Hartlett
indicates that it isdlfflcult to see how such retire
seutatlons rould have Indiirnl her to rnterlnto
the contract, or how their falsity had Injured
her. The notion that Lederer had transferred
his contract was bared solely on hit statements
In supplementary proceedings, and these stale- .
mentH were undoubtedly careless, and might
perhaps br more severely criticised; but, in view
of the other evidence, they afford, tn Justice
Ilnrtlett' opinion, no proof that he had made '
such transfer as alleged.
Another reason assigned by Miss llussell for
breaking thr contract was that the plaintiffs
had failed to secure a renewal nf the lease uf the
Casino or any other theatre, or asked her lose- !
lrct onr, Canary swore that he held the lease
until thr 30th of Nov rmbrr next. The Jurisdic
tion of thr Court In rases tn enforce by Injunc
tion an agreement brtwern actor and manager
not to perform for a rival manager. Justice Hart- '
lett adds. Is well established, hut ll should only i
be exercised when tlio rase. Is reasonably free .
flnm doubt. Justice Hartlett sAvs that this Is ,
such a case, and that his impression U that Miss
Itiissell has been seeking some plausible pretext
tn avoid thr fulAlmrnt of a contract which thn
plaintiffs have substantially performed In good
fn ll li.
Canary ft Leilerer announced last night that
they had telegraphed Miss ltuss(l to report
here for rehearsal on Sept. 1. Their contrart.
Ihry say, allows them to begin two weeks
earlier than Oct. 1.

Nor Are Maay Other Repablleaa, lo staita;
from the Records) of Ijssi Night Whra
Three Ilnadrcd Name Wees Entered.
It was very late last night when the returns
came In from the Arst night's rePnrolment
called for by the Hrookfleld Republicans. All
Republican dissatisfied with the situation were
Invited to enroll between 7 and l o'clock In Ihe
evening, and all of the Republican newspapers
had advertisement to that effect signed by Mr.
Hrookfleld, President of the Republican County
Committee, and Secretary Ten Ryck, There
will be another opportunity for the Republicans
. this evening between tho same hours.
The return last night developed very little
Interest, and all told scarcely noo Republicans
took advantage of the Invitation, It was con
jectured that In the two night not more than
1100. and certainty not moro than 1,000, Repub
licans will trouble themselves to manifest any
particular Interest In the quarrel between the
Hrookfleld and the Mllholland factions. The
record of the return last night wa dismal. In
the Fourth and the Ninth Assembly districts
no Republicans were enrolled, tn the
Eleventh there were fi; In the Twelfth
there was no place nf enrolment! In the
Thirteenth 33 Republican enrolled; In the Fif
teenth .'I, and in the Seventeenth 36, and In the
Twenty-fniirlb, while there was no enrolment,
the Mllholland iieople spent their time In tlw
Itnbert T. Lincoln Club passing resolution call
ing for a alright Republican municipal ticket
this fall. It appears that all nf the cast side Re
publicans, especially the Germans, demand a
straight HcTubllcan ticket. In the Sixth As
sembly district thr Mllholland people had their
own way. and In the Eleventh district only 20
names were enrolled. In the Nineteenth the
enrollment wss 18, and In the Sixteenth 10 new
Republicans put their names on the list.
The Brookfield Republican didn't eem to
take any Interest whatever In the proceedings.
Job K. Hedges and his friends of the Committee
on Organization nf the Patterson crowd werr at
their rooms In Abbey' Theatre en gagnl In de
sultory conversation, Downnl the Slntr club
In Twenty-second street, where John K. Mllhol
land Is the grnnd mogul, there waa n constant
strvnm of emissaries reporting aa to the. en
rolment In the various Assembly dis
tricts. All their reports were to tho effect
that . the followers of Mllholland wen.
standing Arm and refusing to enroll under
the BrnokAeld banners. Now and then there
were Isolated cases of defection, but Mllhollsml
and his lieutenants expected something of this
kind. It was made very plain that 00 per cent,
and more of thr Mlthollandltes propose to stick
together, to namo their own delegate to the
County and State Conventions, and tn make
trouble generally. Mr. Mllholland himself did
not believe tnat there would be more than a
hundred deserters, and nil of hi lieutenants
gathered around htm and told him passionately
nud Willi great fervor that they would stick to
him to the Inst.
So It seems that the Mllhollandltes will not
enroll under the Committee of Thirty' plan,
i They did not do this last night, and It was de
i dared that they will not do so to-night, and th
bitterness Isftwrrn tho Hrookfleld faction and
I the Mllhollnnd faction Is not abated In the
. slightest degrrr. Tho report of the sub-committee
of the State Republican Committer advised
I conciliator)-measures on the part of the Ilrook
i Arid people. Mr. Hrookfleld personally would
like to carry out this dictum, but
there are men around him who. It I said.
Imbue him with a vindictive spirit not nt all In
consonance with his ideas as a Republican or as
a gentleman. Thr Mllholland fellows propose
tn fight It out. and they will nominate a straight
Republican tlckrt In thr county nnd make things
llvrly. They will send delegates tn the Saratoga
Convention who will ! promptly thrown out of
rourt. but a rebuke nf this kind doesn't affect a
thurough-gcing Mllhollaiiilite. Mr. Mllholland
and his lieutenants arr Just as vindictive and
blttrras thr H rook field folks. They believe that
they have hern trampled upon and unjustly
trrnted. nnd they propose to have revenge.

A Burglar Alarm Caused Kale lima lo
Juap rVoaa a Window,
Kate Drum, .15 years old, n servant employed
by Rrnker C. II. Wessellsnf 4fl West Ninety-
1 Arst street, killed herself by Jumping from the
window of tier nairn early yesterday morning.
Mr. Wessclls's family went lo thr country six
weeks ago. Two servants. A gncs Curry and the
Drum woman, were left In charge nf the house.
Thr broker was in the habit nf spending each
night w 1th his family, leaving the girls alone in
the house. Some tlmr ngn thr house was fltted
with a burglar alarm, socotistructnl that a gong
, rang violently should any one open the front
door alter the night catch had been set In place.
I On Tuesday night thr servants set the catch
as usual. Then they retlrnl to their room,
whlrh was nn tbe top floor tn the rear of the
house. Being timid nt thr thought of staying
I alone In the big house, they occupied two beds In
the same room.
It happened that on Tuesday night Mr. Wes
svls was detained In the city later than usual, so
he decided to pass the night nt 4.1. Shortly
after midnight he readied thr house and opened
thr front door with his night key. The two
i women, who had been asleep for several hours,
were suddenly awakened by the violent clang
ing nf the burglar alarm,
Agnes Currv. the younger nf the two, was the
first to hear the noise. Half awake and dazed
with fenr she Jumped out of bed screaming
"burglars!" Thr sound of the hell and the
scream startled her companion. Without utter
ing a wont thr lattrr sprang out of lied and ran
to the window. The other, sretng the white Ag
lire outlined lietwern thr window and the sky.
Imagined that the supposed burglar had gained
admission to the room. She screamed again,
calling loudly for help. Then the white Agure
dlsapiiearnl suddenly, and there was a crash on
the tin roof of an extension three stories below.
The half-crazed girl rushed to the bed occupied
by her companion. Finding It empty, and think
ing herself alone in the house, she screamed
again and fainted.
Mr. Wessells, whoTiad In thr meantime been
groping about In the lower hall for a match,
heard Ihe screams, and thinking that the house
might br on Are, ran up stairs. As he entered
tint servant's room the Curry woman was Just
recovering from her swoon. She begun tn scream
again, but. recognizing her employer's voice,
(minted to thr window. Suspecting what had
happened, Mr, Wessells looked out nud saw ttie
white form stretchrd out r.n the roof. Securing
thr assistance nf a policeman hr went tn the
roof and discovered that the woman was dead.
It Is not certain whether she Jumped nr fell
from the window. It Is thought, however, that
crazed by fright, she ilahed through the win.
dow when nnly half awake.

that matter was sod hided among tho conferees
that It was final!) agreed that In the
mass meetings called for Aug. 33 each
county should act for Itself In reference to ll r

Cl r.vtiaxn. Aug. 15. - A nrw machine In load
coal nn vessels. Instead of tho old sjstini nf j
buckets and rotary derricks, has stood thr test
of several days of actual work here. It takes up
a loaded coal car of about twenty-three tons ra. '
parity butlly and dumps the contents Into the
hold of a vessel, cars being handled at the rate
of about eighteen an hour. The loaded car Is
drawn high into the air on a cantilever, which
Is tilted by hydraulic power. Ihe end lauitaiutng

Is to avoid breakage. This Is reduced tn a mini
