One of the features of it is a dog kennel

The inquest over the body of Mrs. Mar
tha A West, of Canal iojd, Georgetown,
who, as stated in The Evening Times
yesterday, committed suicide by walking
overboard Into the Potomac at Tenney's
wharf, Georgetown, was held at 5 o'clock
yesterday in the Seventh precinct police
The testimony showed that Mrs. West
had been in Ill-health for some time past,
and had manifested -signs of great mental
excitement on the day of her death The
patrol wagon -eonied to those who were en
deavoring to resuscitate the unfortunate
woman to beun unnecessary long time com
ing to the scene This was explained sat
isfactorily to the jury by showing the
circuitous route of a mile and a quarter
in length that had to be traversed before tho
place can be reached. t
After hearing the testimony the jury
rendered a verdict of death by jumping
Into the Potomac Rlvijr rear the Aque
duct Bridge, and decided that tlie act was
voiuuuiry ai.u huiemai, aim uui meuicui

William W. Brohton, Arundel T. Davis,
Harr,y Howes., Bcujaniln F Harper:, Robert
F Pettltt, and Harry .Burrows Coroner
Hanimett conducted the inquest.
The first witness palled was Mrs. Annlo
M Rentier, who lives ljut a short distance
from the scene of the tragedy. She stated
that she had known Mrs. West by sight for
some time; had of leu. talked with her,
but had never until yesterday known her
name Between half-past & and 0 o'clock
yesterday morning Mrs. West went past
Mrs Runner's hou&e, and stopped to ask,
ina rambling sort of way, how she could get
to the river. Mrs Kcuner thought this a
little strange, and remarked to her daugh
ter that that lady had often gone down to
the river, and certainly knew the way
there Mrs We&t appeared to be greatly
excited and quite anxious to escape from
The telephone call which brought the
patrol wagon was sent by Samuel E Swln-'
dell, the next witness. Mr Swindell -said
that his attention had been called to the
matter by a fellow-clerk in an office in the
neighborhood where he was emploj ed, and
he went down to find out what had led to
the collection of the crowd The body had
just been gotten up on the wharf when he
There wero unmistakable signs of life in
the body, and he hurried back to the office
and telephoned to the Georgetown police
station that a woman had jumped Into
the river and asked that a wagon be sent
out there In answer to a question from
the slation If the woman was dead, he re
plied in the negative, but said that she
would bc'so soon unless a doctor arrived im

Mr. Swindell said that he saw the woman
give several convulsive gasp's when taken
out If he had not received a reply from the
station call he would have gone for a doc

Clytlc, who pulled the body outof the water,
did not seo her Jump or fall, hi and he
thought that it was a floating corpse, so
without any particular haste took u line

keeper, that the woman was evidently alive

Rev. Father Zurcher, of Buffalo, created a
great sonBation in presenting the report of
"We have come to the conclusion in
Buffalo," said he, "that the only way to
lift up tho Catholic people to total absti
nence Is to convert the entire nation and
let them carry up the Catholic people with
them. Wo ennnot convert Catholics indi
vidually. We have also come to the con
clusion that we receive very little help
from our Catholic newspapers."
Here Father Zurcher produced a news
paper and read an advertisement. "Look,"
said he, "here is an advertisement for pure
rye whisky and in the next column there is
a picture or Cardinal Gibbons." There
was great laughter at tills remark.
Fattier Zurcher produced another Cath
olic newspaper, and looked over the adver
tisements. "Here is another advertise
ment," said he, excitedly, "for pure rye
whisky, and right opposite it is the pic
ture of the Most Rev Archbishop Ireland.
And this is a Catholic newspaper."
The hall was in a roar of laughter as
rather Zurcher was speaking. He paced
up and dowi tlie platform excitedly, aud

ilrs. Andrew Cmi-i'n Huso to Get Pos
session ot Her Child.
A singular rase ot kidnapping, ln which
Andrew Craig, ot No. 19 K-ghth street
northeast, lost his eleven-year-old son
Willie, has just been brought to light
and has aroused much interest amoug the
neighbors in East Washington.
Mr. Craig has been separated from his
wife for three years, and for the past two
years has been supporting hLs two little
children, a boy and a girl, who have been
living with their mother at Mrs. DoHie
Schneider's, on East Capitol street.
About two weeks ago Mrs. Craig received
a situation as sewiug teacher in an In
dian sewing school iu Mount Pleasant,
Mich., and, laking the little girl with her,
left at once for that place, leaving the
boy at home with Mrs. Schneider.
This lady at once sent Willie, the son,
to bis father, and Mr. Craig from him
learned of bis wife's action. The father
naturally was glad to have his son back
with him, so he took the boy around with
bim, and all went well for soveral days.
until Willie one morniug received a note
from Mrs. Scneider saymg that his mother
bad sent goido money for some stamps,
and for bim to come around and get it.
He left for Mrs. Scneider's that morn
ing, aud he was not seen or heard of again
for over a week. Mr Craig made Inquiries
of Mrs. Schneider and others in the neigh
borhood about his son, but failed to re
ceive any information other thau that
be had been to the lady's house and had
left again. Nothiug was ever heard of
Willie again uutll Monday morning last,
when Mr. Craig received a letter from
him, post-marked Mount Pleasant, say
ing that he was with his mother and
sister and was having a good time.
When he left or how he ever got to his
destination remains a mystery, but it is
thought by Mr. Craig that his wire was
at Mrs. Schneider's house at the time
the note was written and that she took
the boy with her.

TV'illlum Starr Seek to Enjoin Sale of
Judge Cole listened to argument yester
day in the case of William M. Starr, the
well-known herb doctor and veteran of
three wars, for an injunction against Mar
shal Albert A. Wilson restraining him from
levying au execution on the complainant's
Mr. Starr, ln company with George T.
Mason, went on the bondot Collier C Pray
ser ln 1879 to indemnify the Government
ln letting mall route contracts to the latter.
Frayser sublet some of the contracts.
Because of the default or some of the sub
contractors the Government brought suit
against Frayser and his bondsmen in 1S83
Two years later, for some reason, Frayser
was dropped from the case and a Judgment
by default was entered against Starr and
Mason ln 1888.
The judgment is said to have lain idle
from lb39 to 1895 when ic was discovered,
it Is bald, that l)r. Starr had property of
his own. The property was thereupon at
tached and the marshal delivered a tem
porary deed of sale to the Government, the
only bidder. The petitioner asked that the
deed mentioned be declared null and void,
and that the marshal be restrained from
disposing of the property.
Attorneys Harry Davis and Herbert M.
Locke represented Dr. Starr, and Messrs.
Birney and Arms represent the Govern
ment's side of the case.
At Uie conclusion of Mr. Ames' argument
the cou rt took the ca?e under consideration.

Tho detectives have not yet captured
Samuel Dougluss, the young man from
Indiana, who so cleverly buncoed a number
ot poisons hi the vlclnityof the Government
Prmtiug Office, as detailed at length and
exclusively in TheMorning Tiniesyesterday.
Mrs. Sophia L.Bussius.with whose daughter
Miunic, Douglass eloped, and afterwards
abandoned, will make good to Mr. Thomas
A. Rover, the grocer, at North Capitol and
L streets, the $53 he had lost through the
treachery and thieving of the young sharper.
Mrs. liusslus will do this so that no stain
ot tho transaction shall rest upon her
daughter Mluine, who was so cruelly
treated by Douglass. The mother Btated
that wheu Douglass had her daughter in
Baltimore the last time, aud while he still
had the greater portlou of tho $35 in his
pocket, which he had obtained from Grocer
Rover through fraud, the wife suggested
that he give her some mouoy as she wanted
to go shoppiug and get some necessary ar
ticles. Acting upon the request Douglass
reluctantly handed her a SI bill.
An hour later Douglass had flowD, and
the deluded wife was teh-graphiug to her
mother for assistance to get home.
It was learned last night that Douglass
was seen In West Washington yesterday
forenoon. He had an acquaintance in that
section and is believed to be in hidings here.

The following dialogue is a sample t
similar daily colloquies at TheTImes office.
Professor: How are you, Mr. Editor?
I've called to inspect that glass-door re
volving case and its contents.
Editor. You mean the Columbian Cyclo
paedia? There is mine, and a splendid
thing It is.
Professor; It seems very neaUy gotten
up and is easily handled. This Is a great
advantage. I fmdalltheothercyclopaedhis
cumbersome. They wear me out with their
weight and unwieldy size.
Editor: It is a real pleasure a positive
relief to use the Columbian after experi
encing the trouble ot others. I find, by
comparison, that the Columbian has twice
the number ot volumes and less than half
the size aud weight, per volume, and by
proper condensation more and later sub
jects and information thanany of itsnvate.
Professor I see that it also pronounces
and defines all words. No other cyclopaedia
does that. It is a great improvement.
Now, Mr. Editor, I desire to know more ot
that club feature.
Editor: I understand by that that each
subscriber In a club of ten or more per
sons, by reason ot some arrangement Mr.
Tharlu has made with the publishers, or
proprietors, obtains such a reduction a
will &uit purchasers.
Professor: And you throw In six months
free or your very valuable paper to each
subscriber to the coupon-contract at the
end of each advertisement?
Editor: The Times will be so served.
Ever since I have used it I have Telt a
wish that every subscriber to The Times
should have a set of the Columbian Cyclo
paedia, and, as I can't afford to make a
present of it to each subscriber to The
Times, I throw in six months' service of
the paper as further inducement. Tho
cyclopaedia and The Times together ought
to post any man thoroughly.
Professor: I should say so I want my
university and my literary and scientific
society friends to have It cheap. Every
student should have it By clubbing. It
can bo had still cheaper. Good idea, that.
Mr. Tharln will soon hear from ua.
Thanks. Good day, Mr. Editor-
