There Is n new policeman in the F.lliabeth
street station who, If asked by a civil service
examiner wnnt an elevator was, would probably
say that It Is a box-like contrivance built to raise
the hair and stop the heart beats of anybody
who gets Into It. Th- new policeman, who comes
from up the State, was sent to tho Coroners'
office last night to report tho death nf n China
man. The Coroners' office Is six flights up In
the Criminal Court building, anil there Is an ele
vator run for the convonlcpi.e of thow who have
to visit It at night. It was the hiyseed's first
night as a policeman, and. when he heard the
elevator man's obliging query, "Going up I" ho
politely answered "Yes, sir," and started to'
walk up the stairs.
The elevator man thought this rather strange,
but as he was still at the sixth floor when tho
hayseed cop had finished reporting the China
man'sdenth and was about to walk don n, he said:
" Come on. I'll take you down."
Tho hayseed cop looked at him quizzically,
hut being reassured by tho sober face of the
elevator man he walked Into the car. The ele
vator man slummed the door, pulled the lever,
and the next moment there was a screech and
the ha seed cop grabbed the elevator mm
around tho neck with his arms and wound his
logs around his body. The elevator man was
almost frightened out of his wits, and It was
Just blind luck that he slowed ud near the bot
tom of the shaft.

The haypecd cop wandered off to the station
and related his experience to the Sergeant, who,
on hearing It, sent him hack to inform the
Coroners' clerk that the body had been rerno eil.
When the hayced cop went back the elevator
man Induced him to ride up in the elevator on
the promise that he would go slow. He did. hut

Tne President Tenders Blna tho Onerlal In
bnaaadersnlp la the Qneeas Jnbllee.
WisnixoTOM, May 2d. President McKlnley
this afternoon tendered to Mr. Whltelaw Held
the office of special Ambassador to represent
the United States at the Queen's Jubilee. The
question of appointing a special Ambassador
has been under consideration for some time.
Mr. McKlnley secured from the State Depart
ment, when he first thought of the matter, a
memorandum telling what had been the prac
tice of this Government concerning diplomatic
representation at royal functions In foreign
countries. No precedents were found, however,
on which to base the appointment of a special
envoy. The President was very anxious to con
fer the honor on Mr. Reid. but he did not want
to do anything that might bo construed as a
slight to Col. John Hay. the rrgul !y accredited
Ambassador to the Court of St. James. He de
cided to-day to make the appointment, provided
CoL Hay's consent was obtained, and sent a
telegram to the Ambassador asking his views.
CoL Hay responded promptly with a cordial
assent, and the tender was then made to Mr.
Reid by telegraph.
The question of appointing special envoys to
attend foreign ceremonies has bothered the State
Department for a number of years. It came up
under the last Administration, when the Rus
sian Government sent an invitation to the
United States to participate in the coronation of
the Czar. A search for precedents was made,
and when none was found Mr. Cleveland and
Mr. Olney bad several conferences about the ad
visability of delegating somebody to specially
represent this Government. Mr. Olney did not
relish the idea of teeming to snake UierrBlj'
credited Minister at St. Fetersbnrc take second
place in the coronation ceremonies, and no en
voy was appointed. He thought MinlsterBreck
lnridge mlgnt become offended, and expressed
the opinion that he would not blame him for ob
jecting vigorously to any arrangement that
would subordinate his diplomatic, ottice.

rers Church Shnolero Maine Unknown.
Max Schmlttbergcr. the 10-year-old son of
Police CaptnlaSchmlttbergcr of the West Forty
seventh street station, was accidentally shot In
the left temple last night at tho Dominican Fair,
which for a fortnight or more has been In prog
ress In tho basement of St. Vincent Ferrer's
Church at Sixty-sixth street and Lexington
avenue. Tho fair has been very popular,
and among the attractions has been
a shooting range. The range Is In tho
rear of the basement of the church, with the
targets set near the wall. It U about twenty
feet long. William DufTcrin. a boy of tho same
age as young Schmlttbergcr. who lives at 1120
Second avenue, hns hart charge of It. He was a
wnnn friend of young Schmlttbergcr. who at
tended thf fair almost constantly from its open
ing. Much of the time that ho was In the fair
he spent about the rifle range, sometimes shoot
ing, and sometimes watching others shoot.
Young Schmlttbergcr went to tho fair last
cvonlng early. As soon as he entered the
building, after saying good evening to a few
friends, he went to the rifle range. There
was a party of men and boya around It, laugh
ing and Joking ono another about their
shots. The targets aro arranged so that when
a bullscye Is made tho bullet strikes a gong.
The shooting gallery rifle earrlcs a 22-callbro
After listening for some time to tho talk nf the
persons w ho were shooting, young Schmlttbergcr
decided to play a Joke on them. He left the party
unobserved and went to the rear of the range.
Then he crept up behind the targets, which were
fastened to a board- Impenetrable to the small
bullet, and waited for some one to shoot.
As he heard the explosion of the cartridge, he
struck the gong with his knife, making
the same sound that was produced I
when a bullseye was made. At the next
shot he did the same thing, and heard the
remarks of astonishment of the persons
who were watching the shooting, many of
whom had not seen a bulleyo made at
the previous fair shootings. The boy was so
pleased with his Joke that he remained behind
the target nearly half an hour, striking the hell
each time a shot was fired and laughing at the
comments which wero made on the apparently
good shooting that was being done.
At last tho sport began to become tiresome.
Just as ho decided he would stop his Joking the
firing, which had been almost uninterrupted
from tho time he went behind the targets,
stopped for a moment. The boy stepped out
from behind his shelter and. thinking that all
was clear, walked Into the range. Intending to
go forward to the counter.
Just as he was doing this a young man walked
up to the counter from another booth. Youn7
Dufferin had his hack toward the target, and did
not know that Schmlttberger had come out. He
handed a rifle to the young man. who placed it
to his shoulder and fired. As ho did so young
Schmlttberger. who had been hidden from his
view by Dufferin. stepped Into the line of fire.
The targets were on a level with his head.
The bullet struck him In the left temple, pene
trating to the brain. Dufferin had turned
round as the young man shot and saw Schmltt
berger struck. Schmlttberger fell. Dufferin
ran to him. The young man put down the rifle
and hurried out of the building. No one saw
him long enough to be able to describe him.
As soon as Dufferin saw that Schmlttberger
was hurt be called for help. Scbmlttberger was
taken at once to Mount Sinai Hospital, and bis
father, who was on duty, was notified of the ac
cident. He went at once to the hospital,
The boy's tongue and the upper part of
his body on one side were paralyzed. The
chances of his recovery are slight, as it Is
thought that the bullet forced port of the bone
into the brain. Capt. Schmlttberger, who lives
at 151 East Sixty-first street, remained with his
son during the night at the hospital. Dufferin
was held by the police as a witness.
As soon as the accident became known to the
persons at the fair many of them went home.
3IAT XOT TRY SEEEEY DIXERS.
District Attorney Oleolt VTIII PlaUa All Other
District Attorney Olcott decided yesterday
that be would not bring the Seeley dinner man
agers to trial unless he had no other eases to put
on the General Sessions calendars. This prac
tically means that Herbert M. Seeley and the
other persons Indicted with him on a charge of
giving an immoral exhibition in connection with
the Seeley dinner will not be brought to trial.
"I receive letters every day on the subject,"
said Mr. Olcott. "Several of the letters wero
anonymous. The writers of these want to know
when the Seeley dinner crowd are going to be
tried. Others assert that because the men in
dicted are wealthy men they have a pull and are
keeping the trial back. Others say that It would be
an outrage on public decency to have the scandal
rehashed. Others write that the Seeley diners
have been punished already by the publicity
given to the exhibition. I have a big batch of
letters from moralists, reformers, and men
prominent in educational matters, who plead
and beg me not to drag this matter into
the public prints again. Among the
writers are eight public school principals.
They state that the children In the schools
should be protected from vice, and that
when the case came up at Police Headquarters
many of the school children got possession of
newspaper clippings containing the story and
surreptitiously passed them around the school
rooms; that many of the children were caught
by teachers reading the accounts of Capt, Chap
man's trial; that tbo children wasted the noon
hour gloating over the stories of the vice, and
that the result of the publication at that time of
the details of the story brought on a plague of
Immorality In the public schools.
"I'm In a peculiar position In consequence of
these letters, as I am not able to say that my
Judgment Is better than that of the Grand Jury
that filed the Indictment. But I will say that I
Intend to look after all other business that romp's
along through this office before putting the
Seeley dinner enseaon the court calendar. When
I find these are tho only indictments left In the
safe I'll put the coses on the calendar, and not
before. This I have decided on as I believe It to
be good public policy."

Kansas entered tho chamber through the main

reaching to his heels, steel blue trousers with

in nasslng showed a striking lack of cordiality.
After sitting neglected on a rear sofa for a while.
Mr. Ingalls passed out Into the lobby to visit

He was made to stand on a red-hot stove and
to struggle for his food with a dog. He was
beaten frequently, and at times his tormentors i
would cut him with knives. The father would j
place a lump of sugar on the child's head and I
