in the parade marched in fine style, and
from the moment of the President's arrival
in Brooklyn until his departure, not a

people tnrned out in overwhelming num
bers to see the Chief Magistrate and witness
the picturesque spectacle, and from one end
of the long line of march to the other the
sidewalks were blocked with spectators,
while probably more than 100,000 were
massed in the vicinity ot the grand stand
in Washington Park, between Myrtle and
Dekalb avenues, and on the grassy slopes
of Fort Greene, which commanded a fine
view of the procession. When the forma

not to be disappointed, however, and with
the assistance of Mayor Chapin and Com

President, and turning around he bowed

New Yoek, May 30. Low-hanging
clouds brought in Memorial Day depress
ingly. The air was thick with vapors wet
from the sea. All the light of the sun that
brightened the afternoon was curtained
from the city in the early morning by the
mists that swung even down to the tops of
buildings and dampened, with their clammy
touch, the house walls and street stones.
The people looked- from their windows and
were depressed by the wet and muggy scene
out of doors.
The reviewing party iad seats on the
Worth monument stand. This was the
party: Governor Hill, Mayor Grant, Yice
President Morton, General Howard, the
Christian soldier; General Jackson, Con
gressman McKinley, Judge Van Hoesen,
and the staff of Governor Hill.
It was exactly 9:47 A. ta. when the first of
the procession came by. It started at Fifth
avenue and Fifty-ninth street, where the
regulars formed, the Grand Army men
forming in the side streets down to Forty
seventh street. There were about 9,000 men
in line, and the last went by Governor Hill
at 11:08 o'clock. Of the 81 minutes occu
pied in passing the reviewing platform 28
were taken by the United States regulars
and the soldiers of the militia regiments, 47
by the Grand Army of the Bepublic vet

The parade was over a few minutes after
11 o'clock, and the Old Guard put on their
.bearskins and wheeled around to guard the
distinguished trio of reviewing officers on
their departure from the' stand. The car
riages came up and the Yice President and
the Governor were about stepping from the
stand when the noise of a hustling band
came from the avenue. The big men
stopped on their way to the carriages, and
got ready to do some more reviewing. Sure
enough there came a band, and behind
walked the red-shirted men of the Ninth
ward TJ. S. Grant hose corps. The
notable men were escorted away.
Beports from all over the United States
are that the day was celebrated as usual.

EIGHT OTERTHE DEAD.
Rival Soldier Oranizations Have Trouble
Over the Decoration of the Graves nt
Chicago Threats of Violence
Freely Used, but
Chicago, May 30. Decoration Day in
Chicago was marked by an unusual scene
growing out of 111 feeling between rival fac
tions of old soldiers. In Oakwood Cemetery
there are hundreds of Union and Confeder
ate soldiers buried. It was arranged that
the decoration services were to be under the
charge of the Grand Army men, and
special care was taken to protect their
rights, as two years ago the Old Soldiers
and Sailors' Association had taken posses
sion of the grand stand and placed their
"flags over the graves. The two organiza
tions are at swords' points, it being claimed
by the Grand Army men that the members
of the 0. S. S. A. are expelled members of
the Grand Army and, therefore, persons
with whom they cannot associate, even in
doing homage to the dead.
As the train bearing the Grand Army
men was unloading its cargo of living
freight and before the Grand Army guard
had been placed around the Soldiers' Home
plot, Captain W. H. Mahoney and his
brother drove" up with two floral pieces
marked: "In Memoriam, 0. S. and S. A.,
Camp Douglas." One was for the Confeder
ate soldiers' graves, the other for the Union
dead. Past Commander McDonald, of the
G. A. Bf post of Epglewood, was in charge
of the plot. He stepped in front of the
"Get away from here; you can't put any
of your decorations here; the Grand Army
is attending to the decorations," he said.
"We havens good a right to leave a trib
ute from the O. S. and S. A. here as you
have and propose to do itf '
'Well, you can't bring it in here," re
plied the Past Commander.
The two brothers laid down their floral
pieces, but McDonald pnshed them back.
Then there was a scuffle. The Mahoneys
'"We'll take that in or there will be a
dead man here," said one and as some of the
G. A. E, men arrived, McDonald was per
suaded to allow it to be placed on the plat.
Threats were made that it would be de
stroyed by the Grand Army men.
"Then I'll kill the first man that dares
touch it," said one of the brothers. The
crowd approached. The Mahoneys watched
the piece awhile, but no one interfered with
it and they drove over to the Confederate
lot with the other floral piece,

THE SAMOAN TEEATY.
All the Points Claimed by the United States
Practically Conceded Ib 'the Position
Bow the Government of the
Islands Will be Condncted
In the Future.
Bebmn, May 30. The Samoan confer
ence yesterday discussed the harbor rights
of the United States in Samoa, and the con
ditions under which merchandise "may be
imported. The intention is to allow the
Samoans all possible facilities. The con
ference also 'settled the matter of Germany's
demand on Samoa for indemnity. The
American Commissioners are awaiting in
structions from the Washington Govern
ment They expect them next week. The
commissioners will not sign the convention
until it is received.
It is stated that by the terms of the treaty
the Government of Samoa is to be exclu
sively native in its composition, and none
of the treaty powers wili have any voice in
the government of the town (Apia) further
than that granted to them in the general
control of the Samoan Islands, The leading
clause in the treaty insures the absolute
autonomy of the islands, guaranteeing to
the natives not only a predomi
nating influence in every government
al body, but restricting the treaty
powers from representation upon the Sa
moan Council, or Ministry Secretary Bay
ard had favored such a representation. The
treaty further provides lor a sort of advisory
council to consult with the native King
when necessary. In view of the large com
mercial interests of the United States and
Germany, each of these countries will be
allowed a full-fledged member, but En
gland's representative will act only in the
character of an arbiter or umpire when the
German and American Ministers fail to
The Constitution of the Government of
the island is provided for, and in this feat

first Samoan conference has been virtually
adopted as a whole. The islands are to be
governed by the native King and Yice King
elected by the Samoans. These two officials,
together with the chiefs of the Samoan fam
ilies, or clans, will compose an upper house
of the native Legislature. This upper
house is styled the Taimua. The lower
house. orPaioule. is to be made ur of na
tive Samoans, chosen by the people, upon
the basis of one representative for every
2,000 people. The treaty guarantees the
restitution of the status quo ante and rein

This point was long resisted by the German
representatives in the plenary conference,
but was finally conceded.
BEFOEE THE COMMISSION.
A Number oflrl.h Leaders Testify in Be
half or Their Country.
London, May 30. At a meeting of the
Parnell Commission to-day the first witness
was Mr. Arthur O'Connor, member of Par
liament. He testified that while he was in
Indianapolis last year General Harrison,
now President of the United States, said
that every honest man and lover of liberty
would rather share the company of Mr.
William O'Brien in Tnllamore Jail than
thatof the Viceroy in Dublin Castle. Mr.
O'Connor said that when he took office in
the League he found many of the books
fragmentary and in arrear. It was impossi
ble to do anything with them. He did not
know whether the books which the Govern
ment seized during the administration of
Chi,ef Secretary Forster had been -destroyed.
President Judge Hannen ordered that in
quiries be made about these' books. Mr.
O'Connor ..repelled as calumny the sugges
tion that the tenants had. understood his ad
vice to them to boycott land grabbers as a
hint to murder or use violence upon them.
He admitted saying that it was-not unnat
ural that a man who saw his family flung
into the roadside should shoot the evictor.
Mr. Justin McCarthy, member of Parlia
ment, was the next witness. He testified to
the horror and dismay which the Phoenix
Park murders had caused among the Par
nellites. STRIKEEB STILL OBSTINATE.

Canon Citt, Col., May 30. While the
procession was returning from the cemetery
this morning a team became frightened and
came tearing down the street and into the
line of carriages. They made a turn that
brought the wagon in contact with a light
wagon in which were three women and five
children. Both wagons were thrown into

The occupants of the wagon which was run

bard as much as admitted to-night that his
officers were on the eve of a great move in
the Cronin mystery. It is said that the
man who drove the Doctor away from his
home on the fatal night has been identified
and that the murder conspiracy has been
traced to Camp 96 of the Clan-na-Gael,
which used to meet in the Northside Turner
It is claimed on the best of authority that
all the members of this camp will be
brought before' the grand jury and a
strenuous effort made to compel them to
give up the secrets which they are known to
hold. The men-who have the case in hand
were in consultation to-night at
Chief Hubbard's room, When the meeting
adjourned Chief Hubbard said thatwhilehe
could give no details it was true that his
men had at last struck the right trail. He
admitted that the murder was inspired and
carried out' by Clan-na-Gael men, and de
clared that all the conspirators, if not the
actual murderers, would be captured before
the end of the week.
SULLIVAN HA8 A XiAWTEE.
It is authoritatively stated that Alexan
der Sullivan has engaged A. S. Trade as
counsel, and that within the last three days
the two have held several long conferences.
"What about your retention by Alexan
der Sullivan?" was asked of Mr. 'Trade to
day. "Ob, Ihavc known Alexander since he was
a reporter, and I have been consulted by him
He knows nothing about this Cronin affair.
He did not believe he was dead, but thought
he had disappeared. for the purpose of af
fecting the result in the Philadelphia con
vention." "This is a question of tail-pulling," con
tinued the attorney. "Ton see every Irish
man is trying to twist the British lion's tail,
and in their ardor they get jealous and,
jump on each other. In the Philadelphia
convention the greatest Irish intellects in
the country clashed. There was never an
Irish convention in the United States in
which thera. were such intrigue's and such,
bitter contests, ,. .' , V
HE HAS SfANf ENEMIES.
"Alexander Sullivan came out on top,
electing Henry' Sheridan delegate. That
victory made Sullivan a mark for the jeal
ousy of every prominent Irishman who did
not'belong to his party. WT J. Hynes, of
Chicago, used to be a friend of Sullivan.
He and Judge Moran defended him in the
Hanford case. But the Philadelphia vic
tory cost Sullivan Hynes' friendship. This
time is seized upon by his enemies to ruin
him, but there will be a reaction."
In talking of the alleged diversion of the
fund of the Clan-na-Gael or United
Brotherhood, Mr. Trade said: "That has
been explained a dozen times, and in five
minutes any impartial man can understand
that Mr. Sullivan has been as clear from
misdoing as a sunbeam."
Mr. Sullivan was seen this evening by a
reporter, to whom he said that he had not
formally retained Mr. Trade, but had coun
seled with him as a friend.
It is rnmored that the police in their
further search to-day of the cottage in which
Dr. Cronin was murdered, found-a pick and
other ice tools presumed to have been the
property of P. O. Sullivan, the ice dealer.
The authorities are reticent as a result
of to-day's investigations and re
fused to affirm or deny this rumor.
The theory is advanced that it was with
blows from these instruments that Dr.
Cronin was so foully murdered, but when it
is remembered that the notable discovery of
the post mortem examination was that the
skull was in no place fractured, this con
jecture does not appear reasonable.
The tools to-day discovered are under
stood to have been hidden securely under
ground and in a rubbish heap in an out
room or shed adjoining the cottage. The
greatest importance is attached to this re
port, as it is construed into crowning evi
dence of ice dealer Sullivan's complicity in
the murder. Tenant Hoss is authority for
the statement that Dr. Cronin's clothes
were really found this afternoon and recog
nized as the property of the murdered man.
AFTER THE I0E DEALEE.
The inference is drawn that they were
found in or around Sullivan's house, as a
squad of detectives are -known to have de
voted nearly all of to-day in searching the
premises of the ice dealer. The officer in
charge of this search, in response to casual
inquiries, stated at the time that no discove
ries had been made, but Chief Hubbard,
when confronted with the later report to
night, refnsed to either affirm or deny the
statement that the murdered man's apparel
had fceen found.
As the authorities bave usually lost no
time in denouncing unfounded rumors, the
conclusion is that to-day has at least wit
nessed the disclosure of one valuable
clew in the mystery that surrounds the fate
of the murdered doctor.
An old detective at the City Hall, who
has been keeping tab on the case pretty
cioseiy, waa reviewing ine evidence to-aay.
He said: "The three men now in jail
know all about the murder and could give
the police the right clews which would re
sult in thearrest of the actual perpetrators
of the crime. But these prisoners can
never be convicted of murder on the evi
dence the State's Attorney now has in his
SOSIE ONE MUST SQUEAL. '
One of them, therefore, must squeal and
it will not be Coughlin. It lies Between
Sullivan and Woodruff The State's attor
ney would prefer to get the ice man's story,
and I think he would promise to let Sulli
van off easy if he gave the whole plot away.
Ifhedid give Up everything I think it
would be something like this:
"Coughlin made all the arrangements m
the first place for the murder. Ot course he
knew his men before he approached them.
To Sullivan he intrusted the work of fixing
up a contract with Dr. Cronin. The hiring
of all hoses and rigs Coughlin attended
to himself. He first met Woodraff,
whom he knew to be a crook, and
always ready for any shady transaction. He
did not confide, anything to hiss, however,
but merely told him that he wanted some
work dose at an earlv hour in ib mm-nlnc.
Then he audo the dikr with Dumb, about
th8 rig., which his friend was; to call for'the
night of May 4.
A DEEP CONSPIEACT.
"The Williams Brothers did all their
own work, t,he hiring of the Carlson cottage
and the buying of the furniture. I think
that although there were at least 20 persons
in the conspiracy, but two or three, hesides
the actual murderers, knew that Cronin's
life was to be taken.
"Will the murders ever be brought to
justice? The chances are as five to one
against the police. WitKthe evidence thus
'far obtained there can be no convictions.

is not as tenable as my first one.- It may
have been that there was no Clan-na-Gael
conspu-aoy at all, and that another motive
altogether prompted the murderers, It is
possible that Ice-dealer Sullivan got some
woman into trouble. That woman may
have been a relative of Coughlin. Dr.
Cronin became acquainted with the facts, in
the case, which were very damaging to the

a woman has some foundation in fact. The

Sullivan's history of the last year and see if
he was not involved with some woman."
Chief Hubbard talked-wHh. a reporter re
garding the above quoted remarks of the de
tective about a woman in the case. "Yes,"
admitted the chief, "we have men working
on that feature of the murder. Sullivan is a
bachelor, and it is not at all. unlikely
that he got some woman into trouble. If
such is the fact we do not yet know' whether
there is any connection between the circum
stance and the murder of Dr. Cronin. It is
being thoroughly looked into."
"Do you put much faith in it?"
"I do not."

A Methodist Clergyman Resigns to Become

rSPICIAL TEXIGBAM TO TUB DISPATCH.!
New Yobk, May 30. The members of
the West Twenty-fourth Street Methodist
Episcopal Church who attended the weekly
prayer meeting on Wednesday even

of the Eev. Dr. A. J. Palmer, the
Presiding Elder of the district. Dr. Palmer
lives in Yonkers, and although he had fre

capacity and as a friend of its pastor, the Bev.
Dr.JohnE. Cookman,his coming had alwajs
been known beforehand. Jusf-before the

The announcement was a great surprise
to Dr. Cookman's congregation. Dr. Cook'
man, in a few words, told of the regret he
felt at leaving the people of the church,
and spoke of the pleasant relations
between jthem since' he came "to them, a
year ago.' There was no further explanation
of the reasons that had led Dr. Cookman to
make the change. Dr, Cookman simply said
that he ielt that he had a call to join the
Protestant Episcopal fold, and he had. con
scientiously obeyed the mandate.

THE HAIHABKET H05UMENT
Unveiled Upon tho Very Spot Where the
Fatal Bomb Was Thrown.
Chicago, May 30. At 1 o'clock this
afternoon the memorial monument erected
by citizens in honor of the policemen who
were killed by an Anarchist bomb in
the Haymarket riot on May 4, 1687,
was unveiled. The ceremonies were
very simple, consisting of a presentation ad
dress by Mr. B. T. Crane, Chairman of the
Citizens' Committee; the ceremony of un
veiling by Master Degan, son of Matthias
J. Degan, the first of the policemen who
died from the effects of the explosion; an
address accepting the monument on behalf
of the city by Mayor Creiger, and a histor
ical address by Mr. H. F. Head. In view
of the large number of processions to the
cemeteries for the purpose of decorating the
Union soldiers' graves, it was decided not
to have a procession in connection with the
unveiling of this memorial. '
The monument consists of a pedestal sur
mounted by a bronze statue of a policeman
in uniform, of heroic size. The statue is
the work 'of Mr. J. J. Gebert, a Chicago
sculptor. The memorial stands upon the
scene of the riot, at the intersection of
Desplaines and West Bandolph streets, and
is something over 20 feet in height.

Maetinsbueo, W. Ta., May SO. A
tornado- struck a section of this country
about five miles east of this city, this after
noon, and after demolishing a vast amount
of property it passed down the Potomac
river, uprooting trees, overturning small
vessels, and playing havoo generally with
small buildings near the banks of the
stream. The storm traveled over an area of
ten miles, and then passed out to sea. Very
few trees were left standing along the water
front Those that escaped were twisted ont
of shape. ,
The house of Martin Borsen, which stood
directly in the tornado's path, was lifted
from its foundations. Two women who
were in'the little frame kitchen were hurled
20 feet and seriously injured. A barn in
which George Vogel and J. Powell had

St. Louis, May 30. The Brewers' Trust
of this city has put tho screws to the saloon
keepers, and the result is a frightful wail.
When the trust was formed, a few weeks
ago, one of the clauses provided that all so
liciting should stop. Then the price of
beer was hoisted a point.
Ten days later the saloonkeepers were no
tified that the price would go up another
point on June 1. This made the saloon men
unhappy. They held a meeting and de
cided to build a mammoth independent

EE.NDEEING THE GEETIFIEE LIABLE.
He Is KotlfleJ by U. B. Officials to Explain or Briimlf

The United States quarantine laws evi
dently mean business in this State, Gov
ernment quarantine officials, members of the
State Board of Health, now in session here;
have notified Dr. Campbell, of Latrobe, to
appear before them'to-day. His alleged
offense is the certification that a patient had
died of lung disease, though shipment ot the
corpse'to another quarter caused an epi
demic of scarlet fever.
AT the meeting
of the State Board
of Health in the
yesterday, the first
ripple on the surface
of the proceedings
developed into a
veritable wave of
sensation that sub
merged .all other
during the dayt
McClelland, alt was when the
Prominent Local Mem-
ber. Secretary came to
the point of reading a complaint from
Dr. C. O. Probst, Stata Secretary of the
Ohio Board of Health. The contents
of this letter proved to be very in
teresting, for the reason that it caused the
members of the board to request a physician
to appear before them and answer the charge
of issuing a. false certificate of death.
The detaiis of the case were explained to
The Dispatch reporter by Dr. Lee in the
following- manner: The Secretary of the
Ohio Board of Health stated in his com
munication that the corpse of a little child,
named Woodruff, had been sent from La
trobe, Pa., to Fredericksburg, O., and
caused an epidemic of scarlet fever
to break out there. The deceased
had been a patient of Dr. 8. C. Campbell,
of Latrobe, who set forth in his certificate
that the child had died of inflammation of
the lungs. Socn after the arrival of the
corpse in Fredericksburg, however, 13 cases
of scarlet fever broke out there, causing
death to several people; and, from that fact,
it was supposed that the epidemic occurred
on account of the alleged false representa
tion of Dr. Campbell.
Dr. Benjamin Lee, Of Philadelphia,
offered a .resolution, that ft'jrote of severe
censure -liaswd pVnthV8Cti6rrofl)r,
QIYXKO HTM A CHANCE.
But Dr. P. Dudley, of Philadelphia,
suggested that it would be better to give Dr.
Campbell a chance to vindicate himself,
and for that purpose he offered a resolution
to telegraph Dr. Campbell and summon him
before the board to answer the charge.
This resolution was adopted, and the tele
gram was immediately dispatched. Dr.
Campbell will' have to be here to-day, or
submit to the severe censure proposed.
The reporter-asked whether the board had
any right to take such action, and Drs.
Dudley and Lee explained that they had,
inasmuch as they were Government officers,
and any refusal to comply would be 'pun
ished with a fine of 5100.
"It is the least we can do to ask him to
come here," said one of these doctors, "and,
if he does not, we will probably give the
case into the hands of the District Attor
ney." The Secretary also read a letter and circu
lar from the General Baggage Masters'
Association of the United States, referring
to the transportation of dead bodies, and
the board adopted the rule suggested by the
baggagemen at their last congress in San
Francisco, which specifies that all deceased
persons, having died of a contagious or
infectious disease, shall be transported in a
hermetically sealed box.
A terrible state of affairs was reported by
the secretary from Gallitzin, where numer
ous cases of diphtheria were constantly to
be found on account of the terrible filth,
bad drainage and sewerage existing in that
place, and Dr. Lee added, that such a state
of affairs could not be remedied until a
better sanitary system had been adopted in
YELLOW JACK AHD CTJABANTrHE.
A very interesting feature of Dr. Lee's
report was his experience as United States
Commissioner to investigate the causes of
the yellow fever scourge in Florida. Dr.
Lee stated that Jacksonville especially was
in a very unfortunate fix,. on account of its
situation in the swamps, its bad drainage
and its inferior sewerage. He also called
attention to the river at Jacksonville, which
was so slow in its flow as to cause the germs
of disease to generate.
Dr. Lee also made a statement of his
action as a United States Commissioner, ap
pointed by the Secretary of State, to locate
a quarantine station at. the Delaware Break
water. He did not want to make a detailed
renort. because he had not vet reported to
the Secretary of State; but, for the benefit of
the newspapers, he said:
"We have recommended the quarantine
station to be established at Lewis, in con
nection with the United States Marine
Hospital and the hospital for yellow fever
patients. Other buildings for infectious
diseases we have reported in favor of erect
ing, and they will probably be put up dar
ing the summer. A swift ana seaworthy
yacht has been provided to enable the in
spectors to reach the vessels in rough
weather. A fumigating steamer is already
being built at Wilmington, Del., and in an
other year we expect the quarantine station
to be in first-class working order.
"This institution will be one of the ut
most importance to Pennsylvania, on ac
count of the many ships which constantly
enter the port of Philadelphia and land im
migrants for the entire country, We have
fought for the establishment of this institu
tion ever since the Board of Health has been
VEBT WELL EQUIPPED.
There are now 15 Health Inspectors in the
Btate, which makes thejlst pt officers com
plete, two new ones having lately been ap
pointed, one inthe Schuylkill district and
another in the' Juniata district
At this initial session of, the twelfth an
nual meeting of the State there were, among
the more emi&ent delegates, besides Drs.
Lee and Dudley, of Philadelphia, Drs. J,
AVJaovieuanatijrtJLagaiHiaa ana j,.&
Edwards, of Pittsburg; and, among tho first
proceedings of the session, Dr. Lee, read a
detailed report of the wavs and means.
adopted by the officeis of the' board to. stamp
out the various epidemics which had oc
curred throughout the State.
Among these details Dr. Lee mentioned
how the typhoid fever epidemic at the Mc
Allister Soldiers' Orphan School hadbeen
.wiped out; how the tub of diphtheria at
New Bethlehem had been stopped, and how
the epidemio of smallpox at Cameron'
Chutes, near Emporium, iiad been effaced. .
This closed the morning session" and' In
the afternoon Dr. Lee continued to read the
details'of his report. Then followed the
lively proceedings noted above.
A report was received of a nuisance on the
premises of the Pittsburg and Xake 'Erie
Railroad at McKee's Bocks, arising from a
pond of one and a half acres, caused by in
terference with a natural water course,
which has' resulted in the production of a
considerable amount of malarial disease.
Th e board ordered that an immediate inspec
tion be made.
A charge was also received that a false
certificate had been issued by a physician of
ilcKeesport, in order to permit' the trans
portation of a corpse to the State ot Mary
land, On motion this physician, like the.one
noted above, was notified to meet the board
and make answer to. the charge.

Exciting Scenes at the Geneva Commence

Daughter of a Pittsburg Clergyman
Mot Allowed to Gradaate An
.'SPECIAL TELXOBAX TO THX DISPATCH.!
Beaveb Falls, May 30. The closing
commencement exercises at Geneva College,
that staunch Covenanter institution, took
place to-day, and was not characterized with
the harmony and good will usual on such
occasions. The proceedings were very stormy
this morning, and in fact at onetime almost
partook of the nature of a riot For a long
time trouble has been brewing between the
faculty and students. The whole season
just closed has been a series of criminations,
recriminations, petty tricks, suspensions,
etc., between faculty, janitor and students.
Yesterday was class day, and the bad"
blood began to creep out when Will McAl;
lister, a son .-of Bev. David McAllister, of
Pittsburg, whose assignment upon the pro
gramme was that of "artist," displayed to
the delight of the" students a series of life
sized caricatures of the faculty, and in a
more forcible than polite way touched upon
their different characteristics in sarcastic
terms. This morning Dr. H. H. George in
formed young MeAllister that neither he
nor his sister, Miss Veda, could graduate.
The announcement fell like a thunder
bolt upon 'the astonished students, and when
the class assembled upon the platform before
the large and fashionable audience in the
chapel it could be -seen that the'y were not
in a happy frame of mind. All went well,
however, until it came Will McAllister's'
time to deliver his oration. Of course he
was absent, bat the .students in the gallery
and auditorium set up the yell of "Mc
Allister." A scene of the greatest con
fusion followed. Dr. George sprang- to his
feet and demanded order, but his voice was
drowned in the calls lor McAllister, cat
calls and hisses.
"Clear the gallery," cried Dr. George to
"Send him up here and we will throw
him over the gallery," cried .the students.
"Send for the police," said Dr. George,
but his voice could hardly, be heard.
Finally quiet was restored, and the exer
cises proceeded without 'furtfar Inter
ruption. A repetition of. the scenes were
looked for this afternoon, but everything
passed off "quietly. The whole affair will
be brought before the next meeting of the
.Synod and ventilated.
A HYELT ARKANSAS KICK.
Tho People Object to Being Called Names
by an Outsider.
Foet Smith, Aek., May 30. To-day
was Decoration Day. Hon. Thomas H.
Barnes, a prominent lawyer of this city,
was orator of the day. He made a patriotic
speech which was listened to with pleasure
and profit by a large assemblage.
After he had finished speaking Hon.
2St. Kelly, of Kansas, a stranger to the peo
ple here, was introduced, and probably no
people assembled on such an occasion, amid
such surroundings and such fraternity of
fueling, ever listened to such a speech.
Among other things, he said in substance:
"The State ot Arkansas is in disrepute.
Comrades Benjamin-and Clayton were as
sassinated in this State.because they were
loyal to the flag of their country. The eyes
of the entire country are upon Arkansas."
He said his State Legislature had passed
resolutions denouncing Arkansas and call
ing upon the National Government to pro
tect its people, even if it had to put it under
martial law, and then continued: "I am a
Congressman, and. comrades, I will see that
you are protected If my influence and power
can effect it, even if we have to resort to
martial law." Later in the day a pnblio
meeting was held, presided over by a Be-
fmblican and an ex-Union soldier, and reso
utions were adopted declaring that Mr.
Kelly's speech was a disgrace to the Be
publican party and his State, and referring
with pride to the administration of the laws

A Dlember of New Tork's Thirteen
New Yobk, May 30. At an early hour
this afternoon Captain C. Henry Witthans
committed suicide at his home at Ko. 27
East Seventy-fifth street, by shooting him
self, He had returned from the parade in
his uniform of the Old Guard at noon, and
went to his room to prepare for dinner. At
1 o'clock his brother ,went up stairs to call
him to dinner and found him lying in a
'pool of blood, dead. He had first shot him
self in the left temple with a small revolver
and the bullet glanced off. Then he took a
larger revolver and shot himself in the right
temple. This shot finished the work.
In the evening the family sent for Coroner
Messrmer, who is a personal friend, and ob
tained permission to out the body on ice.
The suicide had an uncle who committed
suicide some time ago. He was very
wealthy, and 35 years of age. Besides being
a member of the Old Guard, he was a mem
ber of the Press Club, of the Liederkranz
Society, of the Thirteen Club, and other
organizations. He was at one time In

Hearing of the immense pronto awaiting
the investment of capital in the South,
Mr. Abraham Stayn took a trip.to Birming
ham. In that city are a number of practical
jokers, who took him in tow and had sgreat
deal of fun with him, succeeding in getting
him to invest. $15,000 in a chimerical enter

at him for his gullibility.
rSrXClUt CTXK3BAM TO THE DISP1TCH.1
BzBMnrGHAH, Ala., May 30. There is
a worthy citizen of Birmingham who is
ready to throttle the man who says "specu
lation" to him. Som9 months ago Mr.
Abraham Stayn moved from a neighbor
ing city to this place, with the idea of
making a fortune in a hurry in some of the
rapid ways of which he had heard. His ex
pectation was so sanguine, and he repeated
them so openly, that a combination of lead
ing citizens was effected against him,
Mr. Carlisle Monroe, a prominent bank
er, to whom Stayn had spoken on the sub-,
ject of lnvestments,had promised to keep an '
eye open. Mr. Munroe is a lover of fun,'
and is suspected of being the originator of
the scheme, which was as novel as it was
successful. In accordance with a precon
certed arrangement, Mr. Munroe informed
Stayn that he had discovered a good thing,
but pretty much all the stock was taken,
though he might squeeze him in. It was
A SEW E2TXEEPBISE,
which had a corner in a line that would
yield immense profits, and the meeting of
the projectors would' be held a week hence)
for organization. -
That was all Munroe was willing to
divulge. If Stayn was willing ttfgo in'
with this much knowledge, Mr. Munroe;
might secure some of the stock for him;
Stayn jumped at the proposition, and the
interview ended by his giving Munroe
eheck for $15,000, for which he took a re
ceipt, and he was a. happy man.
Some days later Stayn received a circular
Tetter, "private and confidential," notifying
him' to attend a meeting of the promoters of"
the enterprise to which he had- subscribed.
On the night fixed Stayn went to the desig
nated place, a hall which-had been hired by
the conspirators. The gathering embraced
some of the most prominent men of the
city, merchants, bankers, railroad men and
others. The meeting Was called to order,
and the form of electing a secretary and
Committee on Credentials was carried out;
The Chairman then announced that aa
important communication had been re
ceived from the Mobile committee, setting
ftHB GBANrJ SCHEMB-
which was now under way. This paper ho
wen aireciea me secretary to reatf to tne
meeting. The commnnicationVa heard
with profound attention. The Mobile com
mittee outlined the enterprise, which tho
later stated was even then being put into
This enterprise was the purchase of an
island in Mobile Bay, where thousands of
monkeys were to be raised annually. The
letter set forth that two cargoes had already
arrived. The nlan involved the nrflna-
gation of monkeys for use in the cotton- 5
fields of the South. The report stated that
it had been conclusively proved 4hat'
monkeys could be easily trained to 'pick
cotton, and that one monkey could pick as"
much cotton as three negroes. In addition
it was shown the comparative cost of feed
ing negroes and monkeys was greatly in;
favor of the latter, whUe there would boa
tremendous saving on clothing. There- '
port closed with a prediction that in five
years all the cotton in the South Tould bs
picked by monkeys.
The reading was received with trave
satisfaction by the meeting, as was agreed-

A DOUBT IS THE SCHESTE.
Finally one gentleman arose and asked sfj
some questions about the report, expressing- :
a desire to xnow wnetner tne experiment
had been tested sufficiently to insure its sue
cess. This gave the timid Stayn the outlet
for his own doubts, and. he rose and ex
pressed the fear that the undertaking was
The meeting, however, was overwhelm
ingly the other way, and voted for the im
mediate prosecution of the work; Stayn.
growing more nervous, urged a more careful
consideration. His imagination aided his,
fears, and he excitedly asked who would
train the thousands of monkeys. It was a
well-known fact that Italians were the only
people who could do anything with
monkeys, and he predicted that the syndi
cate would not be able to get Italians to dol ;
this training. He also predicted that the.
monkeys would be continually escaping -from
their keepers and injuring property,
thereby entailing harassing lawsuits upon

FOOLED A SECOND TIME.
Early the following day Stayn sought
Munroe and said he wanted to sell out.
Munroe said this could not be done right
then, as all the stock had been placed, but
finally agreed to give him what he had paid
for the stock, and immediately gave a check
for $15,000, receiving a receipt therefor. As
this transaction was consummated, a tele
srranri messenger, in nnrsnance of one oftha-
detailsof the plot, entered with a message..
Aiwosreau aim was irum .mount;, swung
that the price of the stock had jumped 20
points and was still booming.
Munroe showed the telegram with great:
exultation, and Stayn turned pale as hs-:
begged the return of the stock, but Munroe
was obdurate, and grimly thanked Mr:
Stayn for doubling an investment for him:'
When the joke was revealed, a few daystj
later, btayn was nearly tormeniea to death. j
