MANGLED BY A FIEND
Mrs. Alice Columbo the
Victim of Terrible
HER HUSBAND'S ANGER.
Maddened by Liquor and a
Warrant He Beat His Wife
With a Rifle.
FLESH BATTERED INTO A PULP.
Blunders of a Constable, Who Was
Afraid of the Gun, Preceded
NEW HAVEN, GOHX., July IS.— Mrs.
Alice Columbo lies in the hospital to-night
in an unconscious condition and her at
tending physicians say that she cannot
survive the night. Her husband is locked
up in the New Haven County Jail await
ing the result of her injuries, which, in the
ante-mortem statement, she says he in
flicted upon her.
Mr. and Mrs. Columbo are French-Cana
dians, 23 and 30 years of age respectively,
and removed from Holyoke, Mass., to
Botany, Mass., a sparsely settled hamlet
about ten miles north of this city, several
months ago. Columbo was employed by
Dennis Doolittle as a general farm laborer,
and, with his wife, and child 3 years of age,
lived with a family named Malachi nearby
the Doolittles. Sunday Columbo went on
a spree and maltreated his wife till Tues
day evening, when she swore out a warrant
for his arrest.
The warrant was placed in the hands of
Constable Marcus Young to serve. With
two assistants he went to Columbo's house
in the evening. The latter was found
crazy drunk, and at the sight of the officer
seized a rifle, with which he threatened to
kill him. Constable Young advanced on
Coiumbo with a revolver and demanded
his surrender. Young snapped his re
volver at Coiumbo twice, but the weapon
failed to explode and he left the house,
fearing a shot from Columbo's rifle.
No sooner did the Constable leave the
house than Coiumbo seized his wife by the
hair by one hand, and, dragging her into a
rear room, smote heron the head with the
rifle, which he used as a cJub, weilding it
■with both hands. Mrs. Coiumbo sank un
conscious to the floor at the first blow, and
then her husband in fiendish fury beat her
body to a pulp. The stock of the rifle was
spattered with blood and the barrel bent
double before he ceased his murderous as
Then taking the body by the feet he
dragged it to an upper room, and, throw
ing it upon a bed. lay down beside it and
fell asleep. Constable Young returned an
hour later and found him there. He was
overpowered and put in irons. It was then
discovered that his wife was not dead, and
a physician was summoned. An exami
nation showed that both of the arms and
legs of the woman were broken, as well as
all of the fingers on one hand. From the
calf of one leg a huge piece of flesh had
been gouged out, and the scalp had-been
torn from one side of the head.
The woman was made as comfortable as
possible, and yesterday was taken to the
hospital, lying on a mattress spread in the
bottom of a grocery wagon. She has been
unconscious since the assault, except for a
few moments, when her statement was
Later — Mrs. Colombe died at the hos
pital at 7:45 this evening.
PUNISHED A BURLY BRUTE
Citizens of West Phalia Hang
Up and Beat a Cruel
Next Win Come Arrests by Whole
sale and a Suit to Secure a
PORTLAND, Mich., July 18.— The citi
zens of West Phalia, Clinton County, took
the law into their own hand 9 to-night and
meted out quick justice to John Rada
masher. For a month or two Mrs. Rada
masher's neighbors have told their hus
bands about the brutal way in which
Radamasher used his wife. Public indig
nation was aroused because Radamasher is
a strong man while his wife is a small
woman, and previous to her marriage only
a short time ago was one of the brightest
girls in the village.
Radamasher was more than well-to-do,
and for a time the citizens did nothing ex
cept agree that Radamasher was a brute.
Yesterday afternoon he gave his wife
another beating and choked her almost to
insensibility. The neighbors heard of it
and decided that the time had come for
I^ast night fifteen men, masked and
armed, laid in ambush for Radamasher
and be walked into it. They surrounded
him. put a rope around his neck and
dragged him into the woods.
Then they removed his clothing, gauged
him and Hogged him with horsewhips
until he cried for mercy, but he didn't get
it. After they were tired of flogging him
they strung him up to a tree, then let him
down, revived him and hung him again.
They didn't intend to kill him, but they
came very near doing it. Mrs. Rada-v
masher to-day instructed her lawyer to
bring action for divorce, and Radamasher's
brother went to St. Johns to hire a lawyer
to get out warrants for the men who
flogged Radamasher last night. Whole
sale arrests are promised, and Radamasher
gays he will revenge bis brutal treatment.
Afl the parties are well-to-do farmers.

FIBST "BLOOMEM" DAXCB.
Bicyclist* Arranged Their Ball With
CHICAGO, 111., July 18.— The crowd
which stood some fifty feet deep out
side the Jackson Park pavilion last night
looked at the dancers and guessed which
was which. The children lay flat on the
pavement and peeked under the partly
drawn shutters as though it were a circus.
Comments were numerous, but the dancers
did not heed.
It was the first "bloomer" dance on
record. Four hundred cyclists attended it.
Five thousand people looked at the spec
tacle and then took long strolls along the
lake shore before they could recover their
thoughts. The girl 'in bloomers enjoyed
herself through it all. She danced as fu
riously as she rides her wheel, and she was
not the least bit embarrassed when she
was mistaken fora man. The bloomer
dance held last night was the result of four
An enthusiastic cyclist conceived the
idea and confided it to some friends. ''The
girls will wear bloomers on their wheels,"
they said to one another, "but they would
not go to a dance in them." "Just you
wait and see," said the man with the idea.
There were baggy bloomers, brown
bloomers, close-cut bloomers and gray
bloomers, in fact, the girl in conven
tional skirts who went to the dance did
net enjoy herself while the music was
playing or when it was quiet. She was
unsought as a partner and she could not
sit on the edge of a table nearly so jauntily
as the girl in bloomers did." The dance
was limited to cyclers.
"Bloomers beat dresses all to pieces,"
said one of the men who had danced.
"They don't interfere with the fun, you
can't step on them nor tear them, and you
don't have to get a carriage to take the girl
home. Bloomers are all right."
SEVERE EASTERN STORMS
Cjreat Destruction to Crops

Lightning and Cyclones Took a
Part in Various Afflicted
ST. PAUL, Miyy., July IS.-The storm
which strucK this section at 1 o'clock this
morning was the severest in several year«.
The fall of rain in St. Paul and Minneapo
lis was over two inches. The destruction
was great along the river, between St.
Paul and La Crosse, the washouts on the
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul being so
serious that trains could not run on that
road. Several of the line's afternoon trains,
including the fast mail, were brought in
many hours late over the Burlington tracks.
Lightning struck the Hotel Lafayette at
Minnetonka Beach, but did no special

Blomming Prairie Township, Steele Coun

A cyclone struck and wrecked William
Hollenbeck's house in White River, S. D.
It would have killed or seriously injured
himself and family had they not taken
refuge in a cyclone cave. A large log ly
ing on the floor of the house with a lan
tern beside it was carried many rods away
while the lantern was not even moved. In
some localities much hail fell, doing some
damage to crops.
Reports from Western Wisconsin points
indicate that grain, which was just ripen
ing, was badly damaged.
ALMA, Wis=., July 13.— The most de
structive electric storm in years passed
over this county to-day. The crops are
damaged from 25 to 50 per cent, causing a
los 3of many thousands of dollars. All the
grain is beaten down flat, and much hay
and corn was destroyed. Lightning struck
in various places during the storm, doing

rain flooded the building. The postofhee,

storm has been raging on the lake all day,
and many boats are tied up here. The
steamer Liberty refused to remain in dock,
and must have been caught in the storm.
She is on her W3y to Ashland.
PEORIA, 111., July 18. — Peoria was
visited by another rainstorm early this
evening, but it was light as compared with
the flood of Wednesday morning. The
railroad tracks have not all been repaired
since Wednesday's storm, and this rain
adds to the damage done them.
JLV THE SECOXD DEGREE.
John Collins ConrieUd of Murdering
Fred P. Ohl.
TRENTON, N. J., July 18.— The jury in
the case of John Collins, accused of mur
dering Fred P. Ohl, came in at 11:45 o'clock
to-night with a verdict of murder in the
second degree. The case was given to the
jury at 4:40 this afternoon. Justice Gum
mer addressed the jury briefly, and said if
Collins' story was believed they should
acquit him. The defendant's story should,
however, be taken with a good deal of cau
tion. It was contradicted materially by
several witnesses. If the jury believed
that Collins did use the words attributed
to him, inviting the students into the hall
way with the Intention of shooting if they
attacked him, then it was murder in the
first degree, no matter how vicious might
have been the assault which he courted.
St. T.oui* Is Wide Awake.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 18.— Replies re
ceived from seventeen members of the
Republican National Committee show
them favorable to St. Louis as a place for
holding the next National convention of
the party. Three objected to this city and
four were non-committ&l. The committee
is in correspondence with other members
of the National Committee. The principal
objection to St. Louis is the intense heat
believed to prevail here in June. There is
a movement on foot to postpone the con
vention until September. If this succeeds
it is more than probable that St. Louis will
be the convention city.
After the Gas Trust.
CHICAGO, 111., July 18.— Attorney-

Plans by Which the Disease May Be

WASHINGTON, D. C, July IS.-Dr.
"Wyman, supervising surgeon-general of
the United States Marine Hospital Ser
vice, when asked by The Call correspon
dent whether the National Government
contemplated the erection of a leper hos
pital at Vallejo, replied:
"The Government has no such inten
"If such an undertaking was contem
plated, would you not be aware of it?"
"Certainly," said Dr. Wyman. "All of
such matters come within my jurisdiction
and under my supervision. There is no
appropriation available for such a purpose.
Therefore no hospital could be built nor
any site purchased without action by Con
gress. Besides, I did not know there
was such a town as Vallejo. Where is
Upon being informed the doctor con
tinued: "I suppose the Vallejo people are
considerably alarmed over this rumor, but
yon can assure them that there is no foun
dation for it."
Dr. Wyman some time ago read an ad
dress before the Congress of American
Physicians and Surgeons, held at Wash
ington, in which he expressed the opinion
that leprosy should be under National con
"There is a difference of opinion among
eminent men," says Dr. Wyman, "based
upon their different views regarding the
constitution of the United States, as to
whether the right of National control ex
ists, but I think it does exist, and there is
the outline of a bill which I think Congress
might pass: 'An act appropriating a suf
ficient sum to establish a National leper
hospital, and authorizing a National officer
in charge thereof to receive or to proceed
and take possession of leprosy patients
upon consent of the proper authority of
the State. 1
"There shonld be a corresponding act
passed by the Legislature of the State con
ferring power upon sojne official, prefer
ably the Governor, with the advice of
the State Board of Health, to respond to
such requisition. It should be made the
duty of the Government officer in charge
of the institution, upon hearing of the
presence of a leprosy patient, to request
such authorities of the State as have been
designated for that purpose by the Legis
lature to turn over euch patient to said
officer for the purpose of being transferred
to said hospital; and a Congressional act
should also provide that the officer in ,
charge of the institution should make such
regulations for the treatment and confine
ment of patients as the nature of the cases
"It will be observed that an act of this
nature would still practically leave the de
termination of the disposition of patients
within the State to the State itself, and
leave to the discretion of the Governor and
the State Board of Health whether in a
given instance the leper should be sepa
rated. The necessity for this discretion is
evident from the fact that special circum
stances might so surround a patient as to
make it cruel or unnecessary to remove
him. At the same time it would provide
for a proper confinement of those who are
not surrounded by such circumstances. It
is suggested that a leprosy commission
should be appointed of three or five mem
bers to make a report upon the prevalence
of leprosy in the United States and the
necessity and proper method of its control.
"A preliminary bill might be introduced
empowering the President to appoint such
a commission, and, as the success of the
bill would be enhanced if it called for no
additional appropriation, there might be
included a provision setting aside a portion
of what is known as the 'epidemic fund' to
meet the expenses of this commission.

be the result of this action or not, a com
mission of this character would cause a
sense of relief to the people of the United
States, whether its conciusions were either
affirmative or negative as to such an

Those Who Suffered by Hi* Stealings
Bendy to Lynch Htm.
DES MOINES, lowa, July 18. — The
town of East Peru is still wrought up over
the failure of the Citizens' Bank, as a re
sult of the defalcation and disappearance
of C. 0. Davies, cashier. Davies cleaned
out the assets of the bank and got cash
for them from Dcs Moincs banks and
skipped. For a long time no clew could
be had. Recently letters have been re
ceived, mailed from South Denver, Colo.,
containing some notes the bank bad held,
on the back of which Davves had indorsed
in his own handwriting tne amounts paid
and asked that they be returned to their
makers. Detectives have been in Colorado
looking for Davies, who is understood to
have a family there, but since the letters
were received there has oeen no expecta
tion of finding him, as it is thought he
would not have mailed letters from the
same section of the country in which he
was hiding. His stealings amount to
about $30,000. If brought back to Peru he
stands a good chance to be lynched.
Atkinson Wants His Girl.
CHICAGO, 111., July 18.-William Lane
of 5006 Wentworth avenue was arrested to

Atkinson claims that Lane took Lulu Irene
Atkinson, aged 12, from her home in Kan
sas City and brought her to Chicago. At

from his wife in Kansas City Jnly 8. He
obtained the custody of the child, but
Lane, he alleges, took the girl away. The
case will be heard July 24.
Special legislation Seeded.
NEW YORK, N. V., July 18.— Since the
discovery that the proposed reorganization
of the Northern Pacific Railroad Comoany
was blocked by the laws of Minnesota the
lawyers and all the parties interested have
been at work upon a scheme to evade the
legal obstacles. It developed yesterday
that when Adams went to London to meet
Hill. J. Pierpont Morgan and the Deutsche
Bank representatives he knew nothing of
the proposed scheme. When the proposi
tion was made at the first day's conference
Adams asked Hill formally whether his
company had the legal right to make a
guaranty on the Northern Pacific bonds.
Hill replied that it had the right, and
mentioned two Judges, his counsel and a
firm of New York lawyers as his authori
ties. Special legislation seems to be the
only way out of the difficulty.
AFTER THE SUGAR BQUXTY.
Claimants y'oio Anxiously Await the
NEW YORK, N. V., July 18.— A Wash
ington special says: Treasury officials
have raised the question of the constitu
tionality of the sugar bounty law under
the provisions of the appropriation made
by the last Congress to pay the bounty
claimed by the BUgar-planters to have
been due them at the time of the passage
of the last tariff act.
The first voucher for a payment under
the first-mentioned appropriation came a
few days ago. It was for f 11,000 and was
drawn in favor of the Oxnard Beet
Sugar Company of Grand Island, Nebr.
Comptroller Bowler, who now has it
under .consideration, is understood to
believe that any law authorizing the pay
ment of a bounty is unconstitutional, al
though he has never before been called
upon to make an official ruling on the
question. The sugar men are awaiting
his decision with considerable anxiety.
He has notified the representatives of the
Oxnard Company to appear before him on
Wednesday of next week to show cause
why the payment of their claim should be
As there is no appeal from the decision
of the Comptroller of the Treasury, if his
decision be adverse to the claimants there
is no way in which the Treasury officials
can be compelled by court writs to pay the
money claimed, and the only course the
Oxnard Company can pursue will be to
bring suit in the Court of Claims and carry
the case to the Supreme Court.
WANTS THE BIG FIGHT
Galveston Holds Out Large
Inducements to the
Dallas May Yet Lose the Contest
Between Corbett and Fltz
DALLAS, Tex., July 13. — Galveston
wants the Corbett-Fitzsimmons glove con
test pulled off on that island. The cap
italists and business men of that city have
appointed Dick Spillane and A. M. Gil
lough a committee to come to Dallas and
make a proposition to President Dan A.
Stuart of the Florida Athletic Club to pull
up stakes and go to Galveston. The in
ducement offered by the committee has not
been made public, but it is said to be a
very liberal one. In reference to the Gal
veston proposition President Stuart said
to the reporter:
"Galveston offers a big thing, and I shall
go down to see about it Saturday night.
In getting up this contest I supposed I was
doing a good turn for Dallas as well as for
myself. Dallas is my home, and I have a
pride and an interest in seeing the place
prosper. lam no advocate of glove con
tests, and have no special love for the tribe
engaged in that line of business, but so
loug as this world's championship had to
be settled somewhere I thought Dallas
might as well have the benefit of what
would incidentally bo reaped by the city
in which it was pulled off, but it appears
that some of the people, particularly the
preachers, do not wish the event to take
"They have done all they could to oppose
me, and I now hear they have employed
attorneys to sue out an injunction to stop
work on the building just as soon as the
contractors touch a stick of timber. Now,
if Dallas does not want the contest there
are other cities in the State that do. Fore
most of these is Galveston, whose people
offer the grounds and the buildings free. I
have asked for no donations and do not
now ask for any, but it will be worth just
as much to me personally to have the
event in Galveston as in Dallas. In sign
ing Corbett and Fitzsimmons and the other
pugilists the papers read 'Texas,' and not
'Dallas,' and there will be no complication
whatever in a change of location in letting
the contract. I shall have it read either
'Dallas' or 'Galveston.' Persons who have
bought or may hereafter buy seats with
the understanding that the contest is to
come off here will be taken care of without
extra expense in the way of railroad fare
in case of a change of location."

TALE ASD CAMBBIDOE.
DaU of the Meeting of the College Teams
NEW YORK, N. V., July 18. -G. H.
Sherill Jr., chairman of the Yale graduate
advisory committee on track athletics, has
received a cablegram from President Horan
of the Cambridge University Athletic Club
which states that Cambridge agrees to Oc
tober 5 as the date on which the contests
are to take place between the two teams.
Cambridge prefers the 300-yard dash to the
2i'o-yard dash suggested by Yale, because
of the shortness of the straightaway tracks.
The Cambridge teams agree to sail Au
eust 3 by the Cunard Steamship Company.
Mr. Sherill states that Yale has agreed to
substitute a 300-yard aash in the place of a
220-yard dash, as requested by Cambridge.
This settles the matter, and the contests
between Yale and Cambridge will take
place on October 5.

Flyera in Training for the Sacramento
SACRAMENTO, Cal., July 18.— The
opening day of the summer meet of the
Pacific Coast Trotting-horse Breeders' As
sociation promises fair to be the most in
teresting of any that has ever occurred on
the coast. The event that is at present at
tracting the most attention among the
knowing ones is the 2:13 pacing match,
which opens with ten entries. Of these
seven at least have worked out in from
2:ll}^ to 2:13, and the knowledge of this
fact has set every one guessing. In the
2:40 class many of the entries have worked
out in 2:15.
A well-known horseman, who had en
tered an animal in this class, stated this
afternoon, while watching the work on the
track and timing the flyers, that he had
been positive that his horse could go bet
ter than 15, and thought he was in it, but
he had seen enough to convince him that
his horse might as well be stabled, as he
would have to co against animals traveling
The track is very fast with the exception
of a streak near the starting point, and
that promises to be equal to the rest before
At the* present time there are nearly 400
horses of the best strains on the coast
within the park stables, and from the
enthusiasm displayed on all hands the
meet promises to be the most successful
ever held in California.

MADE OFF WITH THE CASH.
Ten Thousand Dollars Boldly
Stolen by a " Herald"
After Cashing a Check at the Bank
He Disappeared With the
NEW YORK, N. V., July 19.— The fol
lowing story is published this morning:
A trusted messenger neatly robbed the
New York Herald of $10,000 on Wednes
day. He was sent late in the forenoon to
the Chemical National Bank with a check
for an even $10,000, signed by G. G. How
land, business manager. It was for the
weekly payroll. The man had often taken
this little trip to the bank, satchel in hand,
and had always heretofore brought back
the money safely and delivered it to the
cashier. He placed the roll in the little
satchel very carefully and departed.
That was the last seen of him. Late in
the afternoon, when the Herald cashier
had grown weary of waiting, the bank was
asked about the delay by telephone. The
reply came that the money had been prop
erly paid to the Herald's accredited repre
sentative. An investigation was begun,
but nothing was revealed except the fact
that the messenger was gone with the
$10,000. Word was sent to police head
quarters to keep a sharp lookout for the
man, and to maintain the strictest
It is thought that after obtaining the
money the messenger boarded some out
bound vessel. There is at present little
hope of tracing him. At the Chemical
National Bank an assistant cashier said
"It is not our affair. We paid the money
on a regularly signed and indorsed check
to a representative who was thoroughly
accredited by his employers. We are not
liable at all."
Another officer said: "We knew noth
ing abo »i the matter until we received a
telephone query from the Herald. The
man had come and got the money as
usual. I cannot give you his name, as
nothing is to be said about the matter."
At the Herald office ever}' endeavor was
made to keep the matter from the public.

SOLVED A MYSTERY.
Discovery of a Woman's
Skeleton in an Old
HER LOVER LYNCHED.
All Doubts That He Committed
the Murder Have
REVEALED AFTER TEN YEARS.
Those Who Punished the Assassin
Flocked to See the Recov
FRANKFORT, Ind., July 18.— A dis
covery made yesterday of a skeleton of a
woman in an old abandoned well near
Burlington, fifteen miles northeast of here,
has created a tremendous sensation- by re
viving the greatest murder mystery in the
history of Indiana.
The remains have been identified as
those of Miss Louella Mabbitt, who mys
teriously disappeared ten years ago, and
for whose murder her lover, Omer Green,
was lynched. About ten years ago Miss
Louella Mabbitt, daughter of one of the
leading citizens of Carroll County, and
herself a woman of rare beauty and a
leader of society, left her home in the
evening with her accepted suitor, Omer
Green, a man of wealth and widely known.
She failed to return home and searching
parties were organized. Green claimed to
have let her out of his buggy at her home
and for a few days appeared distracted
with grief and led searching parties every
Evidence that indicated Greene's guilt
began to accumulate and he suddenly dis
appeared. At a bound popular excitement
sprang to a frenzy. It became a sort of
mania. Almost the entire population of
Clinton, Cass, Carroll, Howard and Tippe
canoe counties joined in the search.
Houses were searched generally, whether
people were suspected or not Cellars and
wells were explored everywhere and every
suspicious-looking mound of earth wa3
The Wabash River was dragged for fifty
miles, but the body of the woman was not
found. In the meantime Pinkerton's had
been employed on the case, but after a year' 3
hunt gave up finding either the girl's be 3 j
or the murderer. Greene was finally cap
tured by the noted detective, Buck Stanley,
in Texas,; after two years' search, and
brought back to the scene of the supposed
crime. He refused to say whether the girl
was dead or alive. He was placed in jail
A few days later fully 2000 men took him
from the jail, drove him to the Mabbitt
home and lynched him. The father of
the girl, who was very wealthy, spent all
of his possessions following up any clew,
believing his daughter yet alive.
The discovery of the body in the well
yesterday was made by workmen who
were cleaning it out, it having remained
unused for nearly twenty years. Green
was last seen with the girl less than a mile
from the well, which at that time was cov
ered over with planks and earth, and but
few knew of its existence.
Miss Mabbitt had peculiarly shaped
teeth, nearly all of them being double, and
one of them had a filling of gold
shaped almost exactly like a heart. This
same filling was found in the teeth of the
skeleton discovered. The teeth were also
double. When a small girl she had three
ribs broken, and evidence of fracture is
plainly discernible on three of the ribs of
The popular excitement has again broken
out in the neighborhood of the scene, and
hundreds of people are flocking to see the
skeleton. The general verdict is that at
last Indiana's great murder mystery baa
Six Persons Ihrovcntd,
LONDON, Exo., July 18.— A boating ac

lives, occurred this afternoon at Ormsby
Broad, near Yarmouth. A party had gone

of her canvas. She capsized almost im
mediately and before help could reach the
scene the occupants were dead.
