The neautlftil "Woman Who Bhared Xls
Fortunes While He Wns Ilaehelor.
Qumbo, Sept. 18. Tho preparations for the
approaching celebration of tho longost reign
In British history have revived considerable
Interest In Canada nnd tho Canudlan career of
Quoen Vlotorla'a father, whon, as a icoy bacu
dor, his household, both at Halifax and at
Quebec, was presided over by tho beautiful
and fascinating time, do 8t. Laurent. Sho
waa In reality tho Baronno Fortlsson. he Is
described as a most charming and fascinating
woman, and sho accompanied the Duke to Can
ada In 1701, whonholnnded luQuobco a
Commander of tho Uritith forces. Ho lm
mediately took up his residence at Haldlmand
House at tho Falls of Montmorency, tho largo
manor house still vlslblo to tourists on tho
west aids of the falls. His town house still
remains, under tho nnrae of Kent House, upon,
St. Louis street In this city, nearly opposite1
tho Court House. At both these residences'
Mme. SU Laurent was Installed as mistress,
aa welt as at hlslodgo near Halifax, which,
02'J?.r compliment to her, ho called "tho cell
of JTrlar Lawrence."
A. mass of tho correspondence of the De
Bolaberry family has been published which
includes ranny letters from both, the Duke of
Kent and his rolstrots. Tho De Salaborrys,
one of wnom commanded the Canadian forces
at the battle ot Chatenuguny, lived nt Uoau
port. closo to Montmorency. I n one of the Duko's
letters to this family from Halifax this post
"Madame St. Laurent has no time to wrlto
ot this mall, being engaged in preparations for
our Journey. She proposes to make amends
on our rturni"
. Kdwnrd De Salaberry. who f ll nt the storm
ing of Badajos In 18ia, wroto to his royal High
ness Just bafuro tho micouutc-r that wns des
tined to befntnl to him: "Believe me, sir.
that my last momenta shall bo to wish vou
all tho happiness which you, ns well as Mad
anio. eminently deserve."
The Duko svbb undoubtedly slncorely at
tached to "Mndame." and she remained his
jomuaulon until not very long betoro his death,
tho Anal cause of Uiolr separation bavins been
the Duke's approaching mnrrlngo, which was
dictated by reasons of State poller. It was in
1818 that tho Duke was married to Queen Vlo
torla'a mother, though as Into ns June 15,
181-t. he wrote to Col. de Salaberry from Ken
sington Palace, after hla return to Kngland:
' Mme. do St. Laurent unites with me In
hest remembrances." and on the !8th of Septem
ber following he concluded another letter to the
same ojrresponJvnt as follows: "Thank Cod,
we aro both quite well. My life con
tinues to be very domestic, and I seo as little of
the great world aa possible, nnd having said
this to you. 1 am sure you will bo pleased to
learn that what our life, wai when we were be
side vou. It has continued during tbe twenty
years that have passed since we left Canada, and
I love to think thit twenty years hence la. may
be tho same."
Little moro than four years bad claimed,
however, when In March, lttltl, the year fol
lowing thcDuks's marriage, anil fuw weeks
only before the birth, ot nls daughter. Queen
Victoria, Mme. de 8. Laurent retired Into a
convent. The parents of many of the present
generation of Ouebecers, nnd of residents of
eauport nnd Montmorency, were full of auec
dote 01 tho llfo In Canada of the Queen's
father, nnd to them tho picture wns a famil
iar one. of the Duko and the beautiful Mme.
St. Laurent, driving from the Fulls Into tho
city every morning nnd back again evry
night, liehtnd a pair of high-stepping ponies.
In addition to being no saint, tho Duke, In
Canada, was certainly a martinet, several
men ot the Prince's regiment at Quebec plotted
to seize him and other officcri . and unless they
granted their requests, to kill him and escape
across the lines. Draper, tbo ringleader, was
sentenced to be shot. At his Colonel's Inter
cession he was pardoned, but the alternative was
jriaunAJTK jioakds ferryboat.
Caught All v and UoUc to Candidate Wood
run for at Mascot.
While the good ferryboat Plerrepont, bound
from Hamilton avenue to the Battery with a
deck load of Brooklynltes, was pasting Gover
nor's Island, beading west by north, about one
bell In the middle watch yesterday morning,
a strange craft hove In sight diagonally upward
on the starboard bow, and hailed with a pecul
iar squeaking sound. Tbe craft was flying
down the wind and showed every Indication of
an Intention to board the ferryboat. Before the
Flerrepont's course could be altered there was a
terrific collision between the stranger and the
wire stay that stretches between the smoke
stacks. "All hands aloft!" shouted the Captain at tbe
moment ot the collision.
Morris Higglns and Patrick Graeo got to the
scene of the disaster first, and found the
stranger on its beum end on the upper deck. A
number ot fentbers were drifting to leeward.
"(Joan! It's an eagle," fald lilgglns.
" Kiwle nothing." said Grace. " It's a whole ot
n big hawk."
" Well, It's alive any way. grab It," cried Hig
glns, and the two men seized tho bird, which
Immediately set about putting up a good fight.
For a time there were lively doings on the
upperdrck. 'Ihe bird iougbt with beak, claws,
and wings, bat the men clung, and bnnlly got
their pr.soner below and locked It Into a cabin.
It Is about five feet across the wines, and of n
mottled gray and block. It is probably a llsli
hawlt, although these birds seldom grow to
so great a sire. It showed evidences of n tierce
battlo with the winds. Fishhawks are not
rare about this region, though they are seldom
aecn near largo cities. '1 here was n regular set
tlement of them near Asbury Park during the
summer, and aeteral were shot olf Flru Island.
The boatmen have ilucided to turn over the
bird to Park Commissioner Timothy Woodruff
of Brooklyn as a mascot for his campaign for
Lieutenant-Governor. Kven If tho bird Isn't
tbe American eagle, it It pretty near It, they
say, and ought to be a good emblem of victory.

AX IHE VRRailSTATlbN.
The State of Indiana, lie HMd, Is Not In
ravor of Free HlUcr-Ue ripotie with
Pride of the Growth of the American
Navy, and Compared It with Kaglnad'a.
The stiver service purohated by the citizens ot
Indiana for the new battleship Indiana was for
mally presented to Capt, Evans nnd his officers
yesterday at tornoon by Gov. Claude Matthews of
Indiana. Gov. Matthews and his staff, accom
panied by a delegation ot men and women from
his Stato.went down the bay In the United States
despatch boat Dolpbtn at 10 o'clock yesterday
morning. Ex-President Harrison and Mrs.
Harrlton went along to attend the ceromony.
Which had been arranged to take place at 11
o'clock. The party enjoyed the sail so mucn,
however, that they went right past tbo Whits
Squadron down to Sandy Hook, took lunch
there, and didn't got bark to tho Indiana until
C o'clock. Tho national saluto of twenty-one
guns boomed out from each ship In the squad
ron as Qsn. Harrison boarded the Indiana. Ho
and tha rest of the party were greeted by Capt.
Evans, Admiral llunce, Capt. Schley of tho
New York, Capt. Rogsrs ot the Massachusetts,
Capt. Crownlnshletd of the Maine, Capt. Miller
of the Raleigh, Capt. Sands of the Columbia,
and Commander Uradford of the Montgomery.
The silver service, consisting of a dinner and
tea set. thirty-eight pieces In all, was spread out
on. a table covered with the Stars and Stripes
on the quarter deck. The pieces, all of which
are massive and beautifully chased. Include a
large flower dish 10 Inches high and 28
Inches long. It Is oblong In suapa and has
curved handles. On each sldo there It a relief
medallion. Onoof these It tho seal of tbo State
of Indiana and the other Is a miniature ot the
soldiers' and sailors' monument nt Indianapolis.
This Is from tha school children of Indiana,
Among tho other pieces are a candelabra, "H
Inches high, and a salver, which Is Si Inches
long and weighs S00 ounces. In the centre of
the salver Is an etching of tbe soldiers' and sail
ors' monument, and under It the seal of the
State of Indiana. Beneath Is the Inscription:
"Presented to the battleship Indiana by tbe
citizens of Indiana, 1800." With the great
punch bowl and numerous small pieces the ser
vice weighs nearly 200 pounds.
The company that went down to see the pre
sentation gathered around the table on the
quarterdeck. Gov. Matthewa made the presen
tation speech. Charles R. Williams of Indian
apolis told how the money for the service was
raised and now the people had responded to the
call for subscriptions. Assistant Secretary ot
the Navy McAdoo accepted the service on be
half of Capt. Evans and tbe officers of the bat
tle ship. The ceremony would have ended here
had not tho company called on Uen. Harrison
for a speech and Insisted on a response.
"lama sort of grandfather to this ship."
said the ex-Prestdent. "I confess to It because
It Is so young, that being Its grandfather doea
not put me on the superannuated list. When I
was tn a position to have some Influence with
the Secretary of the Nary I told him I wanted
the best ship be bad In mind at the time to be
named after the State of Indiana, and I am
glad to see that he followed my direction.
"There are not many of us here from In
diana to-day, but all came who could get away,
and we represent those we left behind. Capt,
Evans, thsr Is much silver here to-day that
will never get to tho Mint- It Is free ellter. but
do not think It means that lnalana Is a freo-sll-ver
State. It doean't.
" As I look nt this great battlo ship I think
how wonderfully we have advanced in build
ing our navy. 1 recall with regret and mortl
rJcatton the partisan Jealousy which held back
our nary at the time when I was a Senator. I
rejoice thnt the time nas gone by when men
ot one party were afraid to trust the Sccrsiarv
of tho Navy nf another party, for fear that It
an appropriation wero mode he would OH the
navy yards with partisans about election time.
I am glad that thnt la all past, and that we are
now abreast with the gun and ship bulldeia of
the world. Who sava we will not go ahead of
them, as we did In the days of wooden ships
"England must have a navy about as great
as any three other powers of Europe. We do
not need such a navy. We are a queer people
and like to pry around. We are extending our
commerce dally, onr people aro getting scat
tered, and we mnst take care of them. An
army of a million couldn't do It, butatleetof
ships can, and we must have them to attend to
all who lommlt outrages on our cltlrens. We
don't want to seize the territory of other na
tions. We are not a country of filibusters, but
wo want to look nut fur our own and mean to do
It. We have kept our hands ott of other conn
tries. Nowadays they have a habit In Europe nf
slicing a country up like a watermelon and di
viding It around among the powers. We have a
hemisphere hero to luuk out for. and whlls wo
don't mean to slice It up, we don't propose to
allow anybody also to do It cither.
"How these great battle ships reSufnrce a
diplomatic note! Haro you ever noticed that
demands for stated sums for alleged outrages
are never made of nations which have a line of
these warships? Wo want to be at peace with
the world, but at the mine time we keep our
eyes open and look around us, having no desire
to be roped In."
Gen. Harrison proposed three cheers for the
men and officers nt the Indiana. Capt, Evans
proposed three more for the Mate of Indiana,
and all were git en with a will.
This ended the ceremony, and the rest ot the
afternoon was spent In an lustectlonof the ship.
TnE RA CE FOR XA VA I. fl VPRE3rAOT.
The Consequeaeee or Salisbury's Attempt
to lllstraet Eaoilsh Attention.
To tub EiiiTim orTnu Su.-. Sir: The enor
mous development of England's naval ar
maments which has been going on during
tho last ton jcaro was not originally en
tered upon from any necessity existing nt tho
time, but as n measure Intended to divert the
attention ot tho Ensllah people fromthelrown
internal affairs and tho consideration of the
political reforms urgently demanded, especial
ly In the land laws. Tho lnudlorl party was
In powor, and naturally was not disposed to
assist those agitating for radical alterations of
tho laws affecting the tenure of land, nrlmo
irenlture, and tithes; whllo tha movement for
home ru.e for Ireland had received a tempo
rary check. That was In 1880. Something had
to ho done to keep the British public occupied,
and ae nothing presented Itself at home which
they could lately handle, the Tories raised the
cry of "England la danger," and the word was
pssed among the Tory Journals to work tho
oracle on Uat line. Hut somehow It did not
take, for the people had heard It bofore when
they knew no danger existed, and it was also
pretty well understood that It meunt tho ex
penditure of largo sums of money, which would
necessarily come out of their pockets. Lord
Salisbury, finding that the old bogle cry would
not work, playod another card, after the man
ner ot a desperate gumoster.
He sent one day for Lord Charles Bereaford,
who Is known all the world over for a dashing,
gallant sailor, and Just the sort of .man to enter
fully Into the spirit of such a mission as was
about to be confided to him. Having received
his Instructions, Ixjrd Charles proceeded to Uer
llu, where lie obtained an audience of Prince
lllBinarck and received an Invitation to dinner.
Over the wulnuta and tho wlno Prince Bis
marck was nmrto fully acquainted with the de
tails of Lord Salisbury's requirements, and
seems to have entered Into the matter with no
much real and ulncrlty thnt 0110 would have
thought It would huvo rulhert some suspicion In
Lord hnlisbury's mind tliut aftor till he was not
doing such a clever thing. Hut having thrown
his Mild he had tn let the irnmr go on.
Duly primed. Prince Hlsiuarck made on op.
portunlty soon after Lord Charles Bcresford's
lnit, to bring HP a question tn the Gorman
Helclutug, which ennbled him to launch out
on tho danger Incurred by any country that
neglected to prepare luelf for tno comln r duy
of coi.llict. when the vanquished would bo
made to bleed white. Especially did he warn
England, depending on her commerce ana car
rying trade, that unless she mado prepara
tions commensurate with her risks, she ran
tho danger of being reduced to tho status of a
third or fourth rate power. The echo of ths
tocsin sounded In Berlin, well seconded by

from ller Grasp The Itenlt orTiranny,
from tht .onrion Spectator
Europe presents no spectacle more extraor
dinary than tho contrast between the nerve of
the Spanish people and thrlr Incapacity In ac
tion. For eluhteen months they hnvo endenv
ored to reconquer a revolted colony four thou
sand miles away, nnd havo In the effort used
and consumed resources such as It was hardly
believed outttdo Spaln'that they could have called
up even to resist invasion. They havo actually
forwarded to Cuba two hundred and ten thou
sand regular troops, sufficiently equipped, a
force nearly throe times as great ns that with
which this country met and quelled the Indian
mutiny of 1837, and more than three times as
great as tho white garrison which holds the In
dian empire. This army, sufficient, one would
think, for a defensive war ngatntt France, ac
complishes nothing, hut tho Spanish statesmen
lose neither heart nor hone. They are wholly
uncheered by vlotory. they know that
their soldiers die like files, and they are told
every week thai the rich Island Is becoming a
desert, that three-fourths of It Is going out of
cultivation, that the settlers aro quitting In
thousands, while those left behind are Joining
the Insurgents, that the whole expenses of the
Island must be borne for years by Spain, and
that every month Increases tbe chance that tho
American republic, with Its limitless resources
for war, will Intervene; nnd still, with a te
nacity which Englishmen cannot but admire,
they refuse to relax their hold. Be tho results
what they may, they will mako no terms til! tno
rebels have submitted unconditionally. The
fissure between parties In Spain It deeper than n
political fissure ever was In this country, but
upon this subject the parties act together,
scarcely differing even ns to means. Pitt was
never firmer than Sciior Cunotas, and never
better supported by a pneked Parliament,
which, nevertheless, represents the dominant
feeling ot tbe country. It tho conscripts
die. the Spanish Premier sends more
conscripts. If the peasants or the city
mobs object tu their despatch, both
are silenced by an unhesitating appeal to
the milltnry law. which mnkes resistance to thu
conscription one of the most deadly of offences.
If the Philippines rlso lu Insurrection, the Pre.
inier offers tu send no army there alio, even an
army ot cavalry. If that will be the arm most
r"(iuired. It the people of the united States
mutter or threaten Interference, tho Prerulor
ransacks the world for cruisers ready built, or
builders who will build quickly, giving enor
mous prices, tn two cases three-quarters of a
million pr ship, for the needed vessels. If tho
treasury is harassed, ho tell.) everything that It

which Hcunr Cunotus will not do It listen tu
proposals for compromise, tho time for which
Indeed has now at length passed away.
'the Spanish Premier Is a tough msrju and
there are very few Englishmen, however famil
iar they tuny be with the misrule of Cuba, who
will refuse Mm a measure ot bympathy, more
especially ns It Is probable that hla pnwer of en
(itirnnce may be silll moro harshly tried. The
Insurrection lu tho Philippines may prove even
a greater blow to Spain thnn tho inttirrectlon In
Cuba. They are twice aa far off, they have nover
been,thoroughly BUbdued, far 18 civilized, tbey
contain tribe which havo often fought desper
ately against Spanish inlsgovernment. nnd they
are threatened by a foo who, though nut at
strong as the Unttrd States, Is probably stronger
at sea than Spain, who Is farmore unscrupulous
than tno Union, and who. Instead of any languid
desire tint the Philippines should be tree, has a
passionate desire for their possession. '1 he Jap
anese believe that they must find fresh
territories somewhere or their civilization
will perish for want of land to support
thoir growing population; nnd as ithey
havo lost Coreu and cannot obtain Australia,
which, according to their Jingoes, is their natu
ral place of expansion, they have fixed their re
gard on the Philippines, wnich He as it were
in sight, which nro thinly populated, which aro
gloriously fertile, thuugn ltanle. like Japan
Itself, to earthquakes, and the area ot which. If
a conquest could once be effected, would almost
exactly double tho area of the Island empire.
They possess already In Formosa th halfway
house to the Philippines, and tbey believe that
at sea they can easily defeat the Spaniards.
They havo of late years boon quietly pouring
Japanese emigrants Into some of the Islands,
and there la trustworthy authority for the stato
mont that recently at Moscow Marshal Vaina
gata assured American representatives of the
adhesion of Japan in war with Spain, addlug
that his Government would cheerfully expend
forty millions sterling for such an acquisition.
How will It all end for Spain? Weciuiuot
protend to foretell events, for wo cannot oven
guess what line the Governments of Washing
ton and Toklo will ultimately take: but If his
tory la any guide, the Spaniards will fight un
stubbornly against all odds, will receive much
sympathy for tholr enduranco and courage, but
unless helped by some great ally will ultimately
fail. They ought to win, but they will not.
Soino Incurable vico In her organization, or it
tnay be In the temperament of her people, neu
tralizes all the advantages Spain ought to do
rlro from her atubborn hardihood, her nearly
perfect capacity of endurance, and the sombre
genius alike fur war. fornrt. and for literature,
which has so often marked nor sons. No race
outside her own borders, even if SpanUh
by origin, has ever been able permanently
to endure her reign, and every race
which lias restated has ultimately succeeded in
withdrawing Itself from her control, she could
not keep Holland when Holland was to her what
Ireland Is to Kngland, nnd she Inst the whole of
the Now Woild nfter feats of conquest and col
onization to great ami so successful that In this
dny every native of the American continent
from tbe Hlo del Norto to Patagonia, If not a
Portuguese, speaks th Spanish tongue, pro.
fesses the Spanish creed, and so far as he la civ
ilized at all Is civilized In the Spanish way. We
se no reason to suppose thul sho will keep Cuba
any mors man .Mexico, or tne I'liuippiucs any
more than Peru, and suppote that after unheard-of
efforia, ending In some sort of bank
ruptcy, she will desist, and sullenly fall back,
to await, amid perpetual domestic feuds, the
day when a competent Government will onco
more direct her splendid resources and the stub
born courage of her children to some end which
will again make her temporarily great. We
see no evidence whatever that the population of
Spain has lost any of Its hWtorlo qualities, but
she has lost, for some reason beyond our ken,
the capacity of success. It may lie that, as
Spaniards sny. Spain has never had the Govern
ment that aults her. It may be that the lacks,
as Italy laoked for centuries, of all useful quali
ties only the political sense which would enablu
her to become great. Or it may be that the re
fusal to compromise, of which Heflor Canovas
Is not unjustly proud, luvnlvrs n msrcilessneas
which prohibit permanentdnminion, and lu the
end reduces dlsrlpllne to mechanical obedience,
which doea not save even armlot, and will never
save a. State. The only thing oerlaln la that she
dor not succeed, even when the enterprise Is su
apparently easy as the recouquest of Cuba by
twu hundrrd and ton thousand Spanish toldlrra
safely encamped upon her soil.

A letter from Colon, received here yesterday,
tells of the f ato of a famous derelict, tho Yankee
three-masted schooner Alma Cummlngt, which
began her sea wandorlngs oft th Delaware
enpes on Feb. 11, 1)0B. The steamship Solo
dado, which recently arrived at Colon, report
having sighted the Cummlngs on Aug. 18, on
ono of the Islands eft tho San Bias coast. In the
Caribbean Sea. Tho Indians were swarming
over the wreck and stripping It.
Tbe Cummlngs will tnke a place In tho rec
ords of tho Hydrogrnphto Office with the long
dlttnnco drifters the Fannie E. Woltton, the W.
L. White, and tho Wyer G. Sargent, nil sturdy
lumber carriers, knocked ont by cyclones off the
southern coast. The Cummlngs probably cov
ered ns many knots as any derelict except the
Woltton. which zigzagged over more than 10,
000 before she vanished. The Cummlngs was
sighted only eight times In the eighteen months
between the time the was abandoned and the
tlmoehe stranded on one of the San Bias Isl
ands. The last tlmo she was sighted was by the
British steamship Ormstnn, whose stlpper, Capr,
Whitby, under dale of March 1), this year, says:
" Lat. 60' N Ion. 37 30' W., pasted a
vessel at about ,100 tons register, bnrned to the
water's edge; nnmoon headboard almost oblit
erated; appeared to bo 'Ann Cummtng.' The
bowsprit and part of forecastle were out of water
and the charred stump of tho mainmast was
standing. There were many barnacles on the
vessel, and she appeared to have been adrift a
The Cummlngs was set on fire by her tklpper,
Capt. A. S. Cummlngs, when he abandoned
her. Tli fire was doubtless drowned out by
Invading seas after It had burned to the water
soaked lumber. It was still smouldering, how
ever, when the derelict win passed two days
after her captain nnd crew left her. Sho had
then driftod to the southwest about tlxly miles.
She was again seen early In March, 18115. She
had drifted across the Gulf Stream ana was
about 350 miles from tho place where she was
She was patted on March .11 In the steamship
trnck among the Icebergs off the banks of New
foundland. Sho had drifted thn about 1.300
miles, and was apparently bound for the Irish
coast. But she changed her course, and was re
ported on April 21 about 100 miles to tbe south
ward of her former position. She was seen again
on Anrll 24, May 0, and May 24 last year,
nnd had drifted about 45u miles further
southward. Nothing mor was heard of her
until the Ormston passed her. She waa then
about 10 degress, or 1,140 miles, southward of
the point where she bad ben seen on May 24.
It la probabl that she became entangloa In tbe
weed of the Sargasso Sea and did a good deal of
criss-cross drifting In it sluggish eddies. In
stead of her apparent record of about 3,000
miles, she probably covered nearer 3,600 miles,
tu the Interval of nine months and fifteen days.
The distance, as the crow files, from the spot
where the Cummlngs was seen on March It to
theSanlilas coast ts about 2,400 miles. It Is
likely that she covared. In her drift of about
flvo months, from March 10 August, half across
the Atlantic to the westward, Into the Carib
bean Sea, not lest than 3,000 miles. This would
make bur record about 0,000 miles.
The Cummlngs was built of oak at Boston tn
180U. under supervision of the Shipmasters'
Association. She waa rated Al. and was guar

An Explanation la tha New Jeraey Ca
Tha rrlonrTrld to Snoot the OBeer.
To tub EotTon of Tub Bun Sir: I was very
muoh Interested In your article tn this morn
ing's paper entitled "Shooting Criminals In
Flight," wherein yon refer to the shooting of an
Italian named Ettore Corrlgllone by Constable
W. H. Chandler of Union connty on Thursday
last. Aa you seem to bo undet tome misappre
hension of both law and fact In this ease. I trust
you will permit me to give you a clearer Insight
Into tbe circumstances attending this unfortu
nate Incident, and the bearing which our stat
utes have upon them.
Under the statutes ot this Bute all crimes,
with the exception of treason, and the two de
grees of murder and manslaughter, are expressly
placed under tho bead of misdemeanors; You
will, therefore, seo that tho common law distinc
tion botweon felonies and misdemeanors Is not
closely observed In New Jersey, some of our
most serious crimes, as arson, burglary, rape,
and assault with Intont to kill or rob, being des
ignated as misdemeanors, although punished
with sontences of great severity. Consequently
a person may bo technically guilty of a misde
meanor only, while actually gulltv of a felony
under tho common law and the statutos of many
of the States.
Now 1st us look at tho facts of this case. It
appears (even by jour own accouut) that the
victim, with two companions, was detected In
the violation of our game laws. When Con
stable Chandler, who Is also a game warden, at
tempted to place theoffender under arrest one,
Franzo. at once sought safety In flight, and was
not approhended until eonie hours afterward.
The others. Deregottis nnd Corrlgllone, not only
retlttod arrest but attempted to shoot the con
stable, and were only overcome by a brave
struggle. At this point Correglione. seeing that
Chandler had his hnnda full In arresting Dere-
fottls, attempted to escape. Mr. Chandler, hav
ug no other way of stopping him, fired on him
and seriously wounded iilin. There is no doubt In
the minds of any who know Mr. Chandler that,
had It not been for hts brave struggle, he would
have been torlously wounded, If not killed.
I do not know what you call a felony In New
York, but I am quite sure that you would Justlfy
nNew York officer In firing upon a fugitive who
had resisted an officer ln the discharge of his
duty, and who had also attempted an assault
which might and probably would have resulted
In mdrder. Tho Crimes act of this State says
(fee Hevislon of 1H77, page 241. section 78):
Every person who shall be convicted of nu as
sault with an Intent to commit any murder,
manslaughter, burglary, robbery, eouomy, or
rape, or of an atrocious aesaull and battery, by
maiming or wounding another, shall be guilty
of a misdemeanor, und shall be punished by
Imprisonment at ban! labor, not exceeding ten
years, or by a Ono not exceeding one thousand
dollars, or both,"
Ifaorlmo punlshablo by ten years' Imprison
ment and $1,000 flue Is not a sufficient ap
firoach to a felony to Justify an officer In shoot
ng down a fugitive. 1 do not know what your
Illustration of an armed burglar which you cite
as a typo of felony may be called.
While there Is much In our game laws that
might be copied by other States with much
profit, there Is nothing, so far as I can find,
which authorizes an officer to shoot down a vlola
torof them; andldonot wish to appear as advo
cating any such barbarous law as such a provis
ion of our game laws would enact, Bnt I do claim
that there U nothing cither In the conduct of
the officer in this case, or In our statute relating
to the crime of assault with intent to kill, to
warrant the criticism made by you ln the arti
cle referred to. I do not believe that It would
redound either to New Jersey's credit or to the
benefit of public policy to allow a criminal who
has attempted to kill an officer engaged In the
discharge of his duty, to escape It such escape
could be prevented.
By giving this space you will do much to main
tain the reputation which Tin: Sun has achieved
for fairness, liberality, and honest dealing, nnd
will remove from tho minds of many of your
renders a prejudice against our fair State,
which tbe peruaal of your article might arouse.
Thanking you In advance for tbe kindness. I
am. truly yours. Ln Gbanu Uol'kkh.

In the account of the shooting of Correglione,
which was the subject of comment In The Sun.
It did not appear that tbe poacher had resisted
arrest or assaulted tho officer with firearms, or
tn any other manner. Our criticism was based
upon tbe supposition that the offender had done
nothing more than to run away after having
been detected In a violation of tbe game law.
MAZXE'S ECCEXTRIO PARTR1DOE8.
Fljlnst Through Window and Kooatlnc on
Sill In an Inexplicable Faahlon.
East BccKsronT, Me., Sept. 1C Old hunters
who have sbot ruffed grouse for tho last half
century say they never have known the birds to
act so strangely as they do this fall. Late tn
August, or early In September, wbun tho
clutches of young birds break up and fly away
without parental restraint, tbey seem to be
dazed for a time and go through many
manoeuvres that aro not sanctioned by the
elders of the flock. This year these eccentrici
ties are more pronounced than ever. Many
birds have committed suicide. Toward the mid
dle of the nfteruoon, wl.cn tho sun shines on tho
western windows of tho farm houses, sending
bright reflections across th fields and tree-clad
pasture lands, the Juvenile partridges, seeing
th light, becomo fascinated by Its glow and
dash toward it as fast as their wings can take
them. They sometimes miscalculate and go up
agalntt the sides of tbe house; then they fall to
the ground with broken necks. Most of them,
however, break through the window panes and
sttiko tbe far side of the room, where they are
found later by tho occupants of the house.
Mrs. Nicholas Currnn, who occupies a large
house neur the thores of Brewer's Pond, has
lost eight lights ot glass on account of the
misguided partridges thnt flew into her win
dows this fall. In return sho has caught six
plump birds, which went to supply the family
table. The seventh bird hit In tbe centre of the
high attic window, fiew through the open cham
ber, and broke a pane from the opposite end of
tbe house, escaping to the woods.
On lost Monday evening Allen Clark nnd his
family of Dedhara were sitting round the table
nfter supper when a partridge camo ln through
the glass, hit the kerosene lamp on tho table
and tipped It over to tbe floor. .After tho family
had put out tho fir they found the partridge
hidden among the pillows of a cradlo from
which the baby had Just been removed.
On last Saturday afternoon Mrs. Atwood of
Owlngtou sat down In n grent armchair ln tbe
west room of her house and fell asleep. She
was aroused rudely by a young partridge
which bolted through the glass and hither In
the side nf the head.
A young sou of Frank Ellis of Prospect was
down cellar clearing out a bin for potatoes when
a partridge entered at the cellar window, flew
Into the olslern, and wns drowned.
John D. O'Brien nnd Lester Hogera.two young
men from South Boston, came tn Maino early In
September and ena-nged board at a country
farmhouse. Intending to pass a few weeks
shooting partridges. They arrived eaily ono
morning and passed the first day ln a vain hunt
for birds. Before sunrise they were aroused by
the noise of something rapping on the window
sill ot their room. On lifting the curtain tbey
saw a partrldg sitting on the window ledge, eat
Ing a crab apple which It had picked from a tree
& rowing near the house. Tho family where they
oarded told them that the birds came about
daylight every morning for the lrult. That
night the visitors slept with the window opon
and took a shotgun to bed with them. Th fol
lowing morning the ocoupants ot the house
were frightened by the loud report of a gun.
Rushing to the room occupied by the two men.
the woman of the houso was Informed that

her If she would look under tho crab

bird in the same manner, nnd then, after skip
ping one morning, they killed a third one.

old birds. Many of those which survived had
their nests robbod by prowling foxes or wero
drowned by May rain storms, so nobody can ex
pect good hunting this year.
