Murdered by Daniel McGHaRiib.
New York, Sept. 15. Betsie Marcon, one
or the few remaining habltuesof the tender
loin in itc palmy days, died in her room at
No. 1G2 West Thirty-fifth street shortly
Kfore noon to-day,undercIrcumstanees that
warranted Coroner Hobcr in ordering an
investigation and Issuing a -warrant for the
arrest of a mau whose name he refused to
divulge until the arrest was made.
The Marcon woman Mated to theJundlady
or the hours early yesterday that this man
had brutally assaulted ber the night before,
although at the time she did not appear to
be suffering from tier injuries.
An examiuationof her body to-day showed
several severe bruises, notably one under
her heart, which the coroner says may have
caused death. The man Is well known to
the iiolice, and also to the occupants of the
At. 5 o'clock this morning groans were
leant In the woman's mom, and when
the landlady rushed In she found her lying
n the floor In agony She was assisted
to bed and the landlady left her apparently
The lamltady entered the room, again at
9 o'clock and found the woman" uncon
scious. She died shortly before noon.
The coroner said to-night that while the
wound:, did not appear sufficient to have
caused death, yet there were sufficient
grounds to warrant an Investigation and'
the arrest of the mau pending an investiga
tion. An autopsy will be held on the body to
morrow. It Is said the man had severely
beaten the woman on several other oc
casions, each time claiming that she owed
him money and would not pay It.
HUSBAND IN WASHINGTON.
The police of the Tenderloin precinct,
after an active Investigation, to-night
learned a number of facts whlch.places
the case in a different light.
They assert that the dead -woman un
doubtedly came from an excellent family,
and she is lielieved to liavc a husband
in Washington employed In the Geological
Survey, and, from correspondence found,
she Is thought to havo been employed
herself in one of the departments In that
She was the proprietress of a manicure
parlor at 491 Sixth avenue and the police
say she is known to them only through the
persistent prosecutions of the mysterious
man, whoso name -was announced late to
night as Daniel McGilagah.
The Marcon -woman frequently complained
to the iKiiicc about McGilagah's action,
but they could never get nny satisfaction
from him, although placing him underarrcst
several limes. The first time he -was charged
with assaulting her, but -was discharged.
He claimed to be a lumbersalesman.
Shortly arter his first arrest he was caught
ringing her doorbell anil was again arrested
and fined $10. He was again taken into
"custody early in September and placed
under $300 bonds, for his good behavior,
but as was subsequently shown this was not
effectual in causing him to cease his atten
tions to her.
After he was refused admission to the
house, he made a practice or climbing In the
windows. Last Monday she opened the
manicure narloron Sixth avenue, butdarlng
the week bitterly complained that 11c
Gilagah was ruining her business by a
reietition of his annoyances.
The police say that on the Friday nfter
noon McGilagah met met her as she was
going to dinner and knocked her down and
kicked ner About midnight Saturday
she met two policemen at the corner of
Broadway and Thlrty-fiftli street and
told them that McGilagah was around
again .and asked them In to protect her.
The officers -went back to the houso
with her, but her tormentor had left.
About 6 o'clock this morning the doorbell
of her house -was rung vigorously; and
some of the. lodgers, looking out, again saw
HE FLED FROM THEM.
Several ot the men started downstairs to
drive him away, -whereupon he fled. This
was the lat seen of him, and at that time
the woman was prostrated with thesickness
that caused her death later in the day.
When her effects were examined by the
coroner to-day it was shown that at one
time she was employed In Washington
and that she was married. A. telegram
was found dated August, 1895, signed
"Marcon," announcing that the sender
had jut arrived from Europe.
From the tenor of the telegram and other
correspondence It was thought that the
husband was seeking a reconciliation.
The woman never made any secret of her
She told the police that McGilagah owed
her money insleadof her being In his debt,
uutsbc was very reticent inspeaklngabout
her past life or Just how she became ac
quainted with McGilagah. It -was gener
allysupposedtobeacaseofcrazyinfatuation on his part, but the events of jesterday
show that he kuew something about her
IdcnUty and past history.
The woman evidently came to New York
to start anianlcurebusinesb.asit wasunder
stood at the time of her stay in the hotel
that she was an artist In this line.
About the time of the woman's arrival In
New York MiGillagah appeared to be sup
plied with money but the police say that
now he Is -what Is known on thelUalto ns
"on the hog," and he Is out of work. The
woman moved to 1C2 West Thirty-fifth
street last June. At a late hour to-night
McGlllagah had not been caught.
It was reported here last night that the
woman's husband, John Ilelmont Marcon,
is in the Geological Survey. The blue
book, the city directory and other sources
of information were In turn consulted,
with the result that Mr. Marcon could
not be found.

SCARED THE AXACOSTIANS.
Ills Brush Fire on Arthur Street
Thriittened Dwellins IIou.e.
Brush firebugs got In their work in Ana
costia last evening. Residents ot Arthur
Etreet were startled by seeing a big blaza
at the head of the street where a largo
pile ot brush was piled and which stretched
over a wide area of ground and connected
with the Fort Stanton woods.
The smoke and flames attracted a larga
crowd, and as the blaze grew bolter and
the danger of communication to bouses in
tbe vicinity became greater the people
around tried to think of some way of ex
tingulfhing the fire, which had by 6 o'clock
gained considerable headway. Men soon
procured hay forkc and shovels and the brush
and refuse matter lying around was piled
close together, while others brought water
to aid in extinguishing the flames.
Before 8 o'clock the fire was subdued and
tho danger of an all night conflagration
averted. It is supposed to have been
started by someunknownman who was seen
prowling around in the early part ot the day.
