The story told the father of the drowned
lad is entirely different. Eddie Hilton, as
he was familiarly called, was playing with
bis brother, George Hilton, and Willie
Howell. The three attempted to leave the
schooner and were walking along the gang
plank, two two-inch -lioards laid from the
side of the boat to the dock, when the one
on which Eddie was walking turned over
and precipitated him tnto the water lietween
the schooner and the wharf.
He was caught by his brother and the
Howell boy, toth of whom called to the
men on the boat to come and help them,,
but their cries were evidently not heard,
as the men made no effort to assist the
boys, and they finally had to let go ot him,
and he dropped back into the water.
Every efrcrt was made to recover the
body, but up to I o'clock this morning the
men engaged In t he work hud not succeeded.

BCEB AND AT BICYCLE.
John Henry Tiffany Found It Was
a Bad Combination.

man, living near TaVoma Park, made his

not have a good time at all.

the young man's father, at No. 2109 New
York avenue northwest. O'Leary has a
bud reputation in the First ward. He is
known as a tough character, and has been
arrested on numerous occasions for as
saulting tils mother.
Lust night he went to the home of Mr.
Mudd under the influence of liquor.
He asked for beer, but was told there was
none in the house. Taking a dollar bill
from his pocket he roughly bade his sister
go and get a pitcher of beer.
ALL FOIl TEN- OENTS.
When she returned with the liquor he
asked for the change and began to count
It suspiciously. In a moment O Leary de-
clareu with nn oath that the change was
ten cents short. Ho accused his sister
Mamie of having retained that amount and
told her that she had better give it to
him at once, or there would be trouble.
O'Leary was very much intoxicated and
his sister tried to pacify him, saying that
she must hac dropped the money before
reaching the Louse und that she would go
bjck and look for It nt once.
The young man persisted, however, that
she had kept the money herself and de
manded that she deliver it to him Im
mediately. O'Lejry became very threat
ening and ugly and his sister becoming
frightened, started for the door, with an
oath he sprang from his chair and catch
ing her by the shoulder struck her with
all his force full in the face.
The girl sank to the floor half uncon
scious and her brother, infuriated at the
sight of the blood which spurted from her
nose and mouth, turned on the others lu
Catching up a glass from the table he
hurled It at Mr. Mudd, cutting a
great gash in the old man's forehead Just
above his cjc. O'Leary then turned upon
little Bertha Mudd, who was bending over
her sister-in-law. There was murder la
his heart and he looked about blm for a
There was nothing within his reach but
a small tabic, and he grasped that by the
legs and lifted It high above bis head.
With all his strength he brought it down
on the head ot the kneeling girl. His hand
was unsteady, however, and the heavy oak
table swervi-d slightly. Tilts fact alone
saved little Bertha's lire. The corner of
the table struck her a glancing blow on
the head, inflicting a long Jagged wound.
The force of the blow knocked her across
her sister's body, and she lay still and
white on' the floor.
SECUUED A PISTOL.
O'Leary rushed from the house and ran
to his home several squares away, where
he firocured a pistol and started back to
the home ot the Mudd's.
Meantime, neighbors who Jiad heard ibc
hastened to the house and carried the two
tainting girls to places of safety. When
O'Leary returned he founli only Mr. Mudd.
The old man stood in the center ot
the room, half blinded tiy the blood which
streamed down over his face, attempting
to bandage thecut on bis forehead. O'Leary
walked up to him and pointing the pistol
at bis bead said," You old , I'm going
to kill you now, any way."
Thru he pulled the trigger twice, but
the cartridges failed to explode. As the
young man was about to make a third
attempt Policeman Wortz sprang through
the doorway aud knocked the weapon from
the ruffian's hand. It was only the offi
cer's prompt action which saved Mr. Mudd's
life. O'Leary was at once placed under
arrcstaud sent to the Third precinct police
station. Mr. Mudd was taken to Emer
gency hospital, where bis wounds were
dressed, aud later be returned to his home.
Mrs. Mudd, O'Leary's sister, and Miss
Bertha Mudd, were cared for lust night
by neighbors and placed under the care
ot a physician. Mrs. Mudd's face was
badly swolen and discolored and three
tcelli were knocked out by her brother's
fist. Miss Bertha Mudd is by far the
most seriously hurt. She was suffering
last night from two large sculp wounds,
one of which may prove dangerous.
It was stated ut a late hour, however,
that she would recover. Officer Wortz
placed four charges ugainst O'Leary at
the station, three of assault and battery
and one of carrying concealed weapons.
The charges of assault and battery may
be changed, however, to assault with In
tent to kill.

The top hat, like most other things, was

these crowns .they combined brims of por

on the other hand, br rejecting the steeple
crown, symbolized their less lofty princi

volunteer their services. This, however,
did not seem to tneet with general favor,
for Mrs. Jennie L. Monroe, treasurer of
the association, said while she favored the
idea ot establishing a night school ie
could not indorse the rree teaching feature.
It would surely result in lessenlngg the
means of support of the teachers or the
city. This, she said, was contrary to the
prindplesor the order of Knights of Labor.
She cited as an Instance, the opening of
a school by the Wlmodaughsis, which re
sulted In taking employment rroru people
who made a llring by teacbinj. She also
had great holies for tho success of the
association and hoped to sec tte day when
they would have thelr'own h.ilLn nlcfct
school with well-paid teachers, a circu
lating iinrary, and a gymnasium.
Mr. Frank Dent of the Railway Assembly
made an excellent speech In which he In
dorsed thesuggestioD of President Sprague
ror an mcrc.ise m tne representation from
all the labor organizations.
CHANGES IX THFULTCS.
He favored ,1 change in the laws so as
to permit the laboring men to take what
ever book they wihed to their homes for a
certain len gth of time. He pledged the sup
port of reorganization to the association so
long as it existed.
Mr. Charles Homes also spoke forcibly In
favor of making renewed efTorts In the in
terests of the association. For some time
past, he said, tbeattentionororganlzed labor
had been absorbed by the beer troubles,
but be felt sure that In a few days all that
would be over and then the central bodies.
District Assembly GO. and the Federation
or Labor would turn their attention to the
advancement of the Interests of the Library
Association and the Bureau of Labor.
Interesting speeches were also made by
Mr. Michael Cuff, chairman of the executive
committee. District Assembly 66; Mr.
Thompson Machinists' Union; Mr. McCon
naught of the Carriage Makers, and others.
The meeting was harmonious throughout,
and very encouraging as to to the future
ot the association.
