MRS.PAYNE WANTS DIVORCE
Sequel to the Attempted Shooting
oi' Col. Crofton.
The -Wife Alleges That Mr. Payne
Subjected Herlu Brutal Indigni
ties alfe Threats.
Lancaster, Pa., Nov. 16 A divorce pro
feeding marks tlie betiuel of the sensa
tional attempt of Lieut. Samuel S. I'ayiw,
formerly of the rifteeiith Infantry, U. S.
A., to kill the commander of thukreglment,
Col. Crofton, at Fort Sheridan, Cliicagi,
upward of two years ago.
Army circles rang with the incident;
when Payne, mad with jealousy of the
unwarranted attentions which he affectel
to believejils feuperior officei was paying
to liis wife, shot at Crofton when he ob
served t.'ie latter lenMng tiie Payne iejl
deuce. file shot tnl6sed fire. Pajne wvs
tried by court-martial aud dismissed from
Mr., rayne, who is a native of Columbia,
tills county, returned to her home, and to
day hlie entered suit against her husoa.id
for an absolute divorce, accusing him in
the petition of offering her the most brutal
indignities, of drunkenness, of threatening
her with bodily harm, of the reckless use
of firearms In her presence, of failure to
pay his debts and of rendering her life in
tolerable Mrs. Payne If a member of a well-known
family and a Irdy of culture and beauty.
A singi'lv coincidence which Mrs, Payne's
suit revises is that another resident or
Columbia fell foul of Col. Crofton during
the Itler's commttnd at Fort Sheridan
and, like Payne, suffered dismissal from
the Army as a consequence. Heib Lieut.
B. C. Wei fill ,thc sou of an officer in the
war of the rebellion. Some years ago
young Welsh attacked Col Crofton for
reasons identical with those which were
said U have inspired Payne, and like the
latter he was dismissed from the service.

the work of the commission Mr. Banna re
plied "The commission has had a very
delicate, difficult and tedious job, and it
Is diligently working on questions upon
which no two men think entirely alike
The aim cannot be overestimated of hav

the country, uncontrolled by any one po

on which all friends of sound, consevrathe

"It Will uot he pofcbible to find any test

be accomplished all thinking peopl must
co!iKent to .some ronet ssion in order to con

gieat difficulties Irs the way will not he in
surmountable. I tope that the commission
will be able to agree upon a report withia
the next three or four weeks. But that is

Karoim'er, he gave vent to his disgust.
Ho could not understand why he sho'ild
be turned down for the Hulme candid 'ttcb,
Lieutenant WiiKes and Lord Brilliant,
whi'h were first and second, respectively.
The reason assigned by the judges yes

Lord Brilliant and Lieut. Wilkes in the

It is extremely hard to reconcile the ac

Tor park teams and scored the blue in the

The hackney filly classes brouirht out
a splendid collection of young mares. In
the clasf. for t-o year-olds, where height
was not considered, I. C Stevens won
with the superb Lady Valentine, and the
judges in naklng their award pronounced
her the be5t filly they had ever seen.
Chestnut Hill Stock Farm's Pridtf of
Pennbrook was second, while the yellow

Tncn came what is regarded by many as
the finebt show, the display of trotters,
commencing with tile two- j ear-old coltb.
The crack campaigner, Am by, by Ambas

It did not take long to fix the award

Albany, N. Y., NpY. 16. Bishop Doane

this morning. In his address Hie bishop
reviewed tlie proceedings of the meet

and spoke of a committee report In favor
of international arbitration, saying;
'There cau be no question but that

AUSTRIA HBANo BUSINESS
Ambassador Leaves Constantinople
it Her Demands Are Not Granted.
Two Concessions Required One Dis
misses Officials, the Other Tlx
nets Pay for Railway Service.
New York, Nov. 10. The Oriental Rail
road dispute is still pending, and Austria
threatens a diplomatic rupture unless the
matter Is settled by Thursday.
The story of the threat to bombard Mer
sini Is unofficial and rests on no very re
liable basis, although It is a fact that
two Austrian warships are at that port.
It seems that Turkey has removed the
mutcssarif of Mereinl at the demand of
Austria, but demurs to remoing the
vali, or governor general of Adana, in
which province Merslni is situated, on
the ground that he was not concerned in
the outrage of Brazefoill.
This part of the dispute, however, ma
be regarded as good as settled, as th Porte
will undoubtedly feld to Austria. It is
the second note .which Austria has tacked
on the Mersini case which is causing
Turkey to stiffen. This note makes a
somewhat novel claim, Austria having
constituted herself the champion of the
Turkish Railway's Exploitation Com
p-iuy, which Is a puiely prnate concern,
mauaged In Vienna, but with financial
interests that are . mainly centered in
Pans, Berlin and Zurich.
The demands include payment for the
transportation of Tuikish troops during the
recent war with Greeee nnd a concession
for lajing an additional local track in
Constantinople. It is these claims on his
exehequci that the Sultan is refusing to
grant. If he does not jield by noon
Thursday Brtroii Calice, tlie Austiiin am
bassador will leave Const. mtiuople.
In the present dispute Austria a.is thy
tacit support of the powers on which the
Sultan has been accustomed to rely He
will probably remain obstinate until the
last moment, nnd'then yield.

Columbus Ohio, Nov. 1C All doubt re
garding Senator Banna's return to the
Senate was remced today when it was
developt-d that the Republicans would have
a majority of fifteen im-tead of five on
joint ballot in the next legislature. Four
fusion membe-s of the house from Hamil
ton county district who, in all previous
calculations, bad been classed with the
Democrats, announced privately tbat they
will act with tlie Republicans. This de
termination on their part gives the Repub
licans a majority of fifteen on joint ballot,
thus insuring the return of Mr. Hannrt to
the United States Senate beyond the pos
sibility ot a doubt.
It is no secret mat Messrs. 3Iason, Bram
ley and Burke, the three Republican mem
bers from Ci.yahoea county, are not per
sonally friendly to Senator Hanna, and the
opposition has been claiming that they
would not vote for him for Senator. The
elHim has a'so been made that certain
other members would bolt his nomitia
tion, and that, with the aid of the Demo
crats, these members would be able to
dictate the ppvtlon 0r some Republican
other than Hanna. T'lis claim.it appears,
was also unjustified.
James H. Ileyde, the Democratic mem
ber from Holmes county, comes ot.5 in an
in-crlcw todav in which he says that be
would not enter into any such an arrange
ment, and that he will not vote for any
one who Is not a Simon pure free sil.-er
Democrat. Mr. neyde says there are other
Democratic members who would refuse
to enter into any Audi combination. He
further lays that Hanna in the Senate
would do more to bring about Derr.ocratic
success ir. 1000 rltau anj other man the
Repiiolicans of Ohio could bend to repre

Republicans will have eighty otes .,

Makes the Declaration.
NOT AFRAID OF BRYANISM
Candidate of the Democratic Party
3Iust JJave a Clear HeOorrt So
Far ns the Campaign of. 180(1
Is Concerned The Recent Elec
tion Showed This.
New York, Nov. 16 The Hon. James
C. Truman, of Binghamton, enainuau of
the executive coniinictee of the Demo
cratic State committee, made a declara
tion today, which will be read with in
terest by Democrats all over the country.
Col. Iruman lias been chairman of tlu
executive committee for two years. He
has declared many times that he believes
in the Chicago platform- So when he read
that ex-Assemblvman Stanchfleld, of El
mira, was a candidate for governor next
year, and that ex-Senator BUI was one of
Mr. Stanchfield's chief supporters, Col.
Truman came out flatly in behalf of Elliott
Danforth. of Chenango, chairman of the
State "ominittee. Col. Truman said:
"No man can get tlie Democratic nomina
tion w ho?e tecord i not clear, so far as the
campaign of 18( was concerned. Tbe
fact that Justice A. D. Parker and Justice
Van Wyck were elected, cuief judge of the
court ot appeals and mavor of Greater
New York, respectively, by very large
majorities shows that the people are not
afraid of t -called Branism.
"Both Justice Parker ami Justice Van
Wyck were Bryan supporters. They did
not abandon their party last year. The
nonloee for governor at the next Demo
cratic State convention must be straight
on the Chicago platform. Such auomineo
can be elected by a larjre majority."
Tammany Hull will l:ae very much
to do with naming the candidate for
governor. Richard Croker and ome ot his
friends are favorable Inclined to the iionil
nation of Perry Belmont, a gold Demo
crat, who bolted the Chicago platform.
Nevertheless, .Mr. Belmont is spoken of
very highly by Tammany Democrats.
Richard Croker, howeer, is quoted as
sajitig that he belleies Mr. Parker, who
lias just been elected chief judge of the
court of appeals, should be the candidate
of the New York Demoorars in the Con
vention of 1000.
