THE CORONER'S INQUEST.
No New Facts Developed in the Sliooting
The coroner hela an inquest yesterday to
inquire into the cause of the death of Harry
B. Davids, shot on Saturday night. Tbe
facts elicited were substantially as published
n the Globe on Sunday.
Wm. Fairbairn, who clerks at the Johnson
restaurant, on Fifth avenue south, between
Washington avenue and Third street, ident
ified the remains aud testified to all tbe oc
currences of the tragedy in detail, the fol
lowing being au epitome:
Davids and Mrs. Patch bad been boarding
at the restaurant for some time; I supposed
theyjwyra anil wife; ou Saturday night
tbey comcJin aud took seats at opposite
sides of the table; tbe woman faced the
door and Davids back was towards the door.
Mr. Patch came in while they were eating; am
certain be could not have seen the two before
entering tbe restaurant owing to their po
sition ; Patch bought a cigar; think be looked
around and. smiled to the woman ; Daniels
turned in bis seat and said, "How do you
do?" Patc!b Teplied, "Don't you ever speak
to vie, you'— — ;" f JJavids acted excited and
said, "Don't say that to me;" "Take care,"
I think Davids repeated it twice or more;
Patch then lighted his cigar and walked
quietly from the restaurant; he bad probably
been gone about oue minute when Davids
suddenly jumped up, placed bis hand on his
hip pocket, as though for a revolver: he
darted across the restaurant and grab
bed his hat; he then rushed from
the restaurant with bis right band
on his hip pocket; I thought he meant mis
chief tind asked Mrs. Patch what the trouble
was; she replied they were crazy; I then
started out also; and saw the two men above
Midway and Washington avenue; Patch was
walking towards Washington avenue and
Davids was following him; I think Davids
took hold of Patch's coat; Patch turned
around and pushed Davids back, at tbe same
time crying out "keep back, don't come
near me, I don't want to have anything to
with you." Davids started towards him
again and put bis hand quickly to his hip
pocket; I thought he was trying to pull a re
volver and I started on the ruu to catch bis
arm, when Patch fired; I was in range and
dodged to one side ; Patch fired twice, but
when he fired the third time I held him by
the wrist and threw his baud up so the fourth
shot wont into the air; Davids meanwhile
bad disappeared in the alley; I said
to Patch, 4 '\Vhat does this mean*
What is it all about'" and he re
plied, "That woman who was eating,
with bim is my wife; you don't know how I
have been abused; I asked, "Do you in
tend to ruu away?" be replied "No!" and I
then induced him to go with me to the res
taurant and to return bis revolver to his
pocket; I then turned my attention to
Davids; I found him lying ou the sidewalk
in front of the Chinese laundry; Mrs. Patch
was bathing his head.
The dining room girl at the restaurant cor
roborated the statements of Fairbairn re
garding the episode in the restaurant.
Detective Quintan testified that he had in
terrogated the deceased in Drs. Ames &
Moon's office, when Davids acknowledged
that he was entirely to blame for the shoot
Drs. R. Hill and W. P. Spring, who con
ducted the autopsy, testified respecting the
post mortem appearances and the iujury,and
gave itas their opinion that the deceased came
to his death from internal hemorrhage.
The bullet was exhibited aud it was found
that it fitted the shells in the chamber of the
revolver taken by Officer Bradley from Patch.
This was the only material evidence ad
duced, although there were several other wit
The jury brought in a verdict that the de
ceased came to his death from a gun-shot
wound by the hand of Oliver L. Patch.
A >'E\V ENTERPRISE.
The Manufacture of Condensed Milk, In
fant Food aud other Products of
Milk, in Minnesota.
Of the many enterprises we have had the
pleasure of reporting in our column, there
are few that strike us so favorably, in regard
to general Importance and tbe prospect of
being very profitable, as the undertaking
A company is being formed with a capital
of $150,000 to produce the above named
staple articles in Minnesota, and since the
primary conditions required are most ad
vantageous, and consequently tbe the profits
arising from such manufacture undoubtedly
very considerable, we commend the perusal
of apamphlct rcsently issued to the business
community by Mr. Richard F. Schmidt, a
gentleman who has sojourned with us in
Minneapolis for several months and is an
educated, practical expert in the manufactur
ing of the abOVe articles, who after an exper
ience of many years in this particular brauch
of industry has beeu selected to manage the
new enterprise, and his pamphlet explains
all the points of manufacture, profits, etc..
succinctly, so that all interested may become
thoroughly acquainted wtth the process and
requirements. Schmidt is well known to
many business men of the twin cities, a very
agreeable gentleman thoroughly posted and
always found ready at his rt sidence No. 938,
Eighth avenue south. Minneapolis, to talk
tacts and explain various features of the
"Tlie M>rrij War."
The return engagement of tbe Carleton
English Opera company promises to be even
more profitable than was their first season in
the Grand. That is a uaturaljresult, and is
a merited recognition on the part of our
theater-goers of the superior talent of the
company. The Merry War Is really one of
the most entertaining and enjoyable of the
light operas. Tins evening our people will
be afforded their only opportunity to listen to
that sparkling opera "Fra Diavolo." The
management will feel satisfied if the com
pany continues to draw as last night There
will be uo Wednesday matinee.

[Special Correspondence of the Globe. |
Cuatfield, Minn., Aug. 11. — The readers
of the Globe here are glad to see that there
is a Southern Minnesota column in tbe daily
issue. We feel that there ought to be an oc
casional fact or item of interest for it from
this point. This is one of the oldest settled
towns in this part of the state, as well as
among tbe quietest and wealthiest according
to its population. We are not making any
rush, but steadily improving our advantages
which we believe as good as any other sec
tion presents. Our froundry was burned
down a week ago; but we have three flour
mills, a woolen factory, and a creamery
which uses tbe cream from 3,000 cows,
makes a tou of butler a day for an average,
aud sells, besides, from $7,000 to $8,000
worth of hogs a year; aud it has never sus
pended business during the three?' yßfiri ;
since its establishment, on acconnt of the
season or any other cause.
The year's shipments of cattle and hogs
reaches $300,000, besides the cured meats,
grain, etc. These figures are not startling
from their magnitude, but this is only a
small town on a branch of the Chicago &
Northwestern railroad, but it may furnish a
unit by which to measure tbe aggregate
business, and relative importance of this
portion of Minnesota.
Other towns about ue are doing the same
The counties of Fillmore Olm stead and
Goodhue represent as much substantial
prosperity, have as many natural advantages
and as gsod a prospect for healthy future de
velopment In the leading features of material
wealth as any equal portion of the state.
We are not dependent upon the wheat
crop, and destined to co to ruin when it
fails. We have gone through the experience
of an exclusive wheat farming and are safely
ou the other side; arc doiug a mixed farm
ing, and under its advantages paying off
mortgages and putting up better buildings
and making general Improvements.
We have sent from our town 1,200 fat
sheep and lambs this spring to St. Paul, and
there are still 3.500 left of the flock from
wbicb they were selected.
In general, every branch of industry that
can be successfully prosecuted anywhere in

special telegram from Judge W. C. James in
Globe of Bth inst, which while hi 9 senti
ment and predictions are correct, he is
slightly off in figures. Let me correct the
judge. Buren R. Sherman was elected gov
ernor last fall instead of two years ago; we
elect governors odd years. His majority over
all was 1909, instead of 15,005, as stated,
tha Greenbackers polling about 18,000.
It is doubtful if tbe Prohibition people will
poll 10,000, if indeed they are not frightened
and bullied out of putting up an electoral
ticket even by Republican "ring masters."
Sbonld tbey, however, make up a ticket, they
wonld cast from 5,000 to 10,000 votes, which
would come almost entirely ont of Republi
can ranks, bnt we can lick the Republicans
without the help of the Prohibitionists — just
wait and see.
Now, a word about the fusion vote for elec
tors. Every detail is settled. It only waits
for ratification at the Greenback and Demo
cratic state conventions, which are to meet
the same day (Sept 3,) at the city of Daven
The Democrats have performed their part
of tbe contract by nominating Gen. Weaver
for congress in tbe Sixth district, which act
ensures his nomination by from 3.000 to
4,000 majority, providing always, that the
Greenback party stand in line for the fusion,
if not — c still have fame to '"bounce" the
general and pot an unterrified Democrat in
The terms of the fnsion are something like
this, each party put on one man for elector
at large, then divide tbe bal ance,four Green
backers and ssven Democrats.
Tbe judge is correct in saying we shall
have 10,000 German recruits from tbe Re
publicans and it may double that number if
we count in tbe whisky drinking Republicans.
Then there are the druggists of the state, who
number upwards of 40,000 and who hare al
ways voted the Republican ticket, almost to a
mau, their Btocka of goods are lying almost
idle, because, by the terms of their infamous
prohibition law, they are not allowed to ship
in a drop of spirits, not even a sufficient
quantities to make their tinctures or com
pound their medicines to fill a doctor's pre
scription, or even wine to sell for sacramen
tal purposes. Is it natural to suppose that
these druggists will vote again with the luna
tics who have brought ruin on their business!
They say not. Even the brewers, who have
thrown up their hats and yelled with the Re
publican dndes for twenty-eight years, arc
coming to their senses now and are working
with the Democrats as they never worked
before; they begin to grasp the truth of tho
old adage, "If you lie down with dogs you
shall rise up with fleas." Wait a few mouths
only and we'll show you a state redeemed
from the misrule of cranks and crank preach
ers. Very truly yours,
David De Shields.
WHY HE WITHDREW.
Mark Twain As a Candidate Encount
ers The Same Experience.
That Governor Cleveland is Having-Hls
Troubles With The Newspapers and
Concerning tbe recent dirty attack on the
private character of Governor Cleveland, and
the disreputable mode of warfare inaugurated
against bim by the Republicans, nothing
more severe can be said than is contained iv
the following rich satire written by Mark
Twain, the popular humorist. Mark relates
how he was induced to run for Governor
against Mr. John T. Smith on the regular
ticket, and Mr. Blank J. Blank on an Inde
pendent ticket. He was congratulating him
self on having, as he thought, a much better
reputation than either of bis opponents and
had received a testimonial to that e3ect from
his grandmother, when, as he was looking
over the newspapers at the breakfast tabic,
he was confounded by the following para
Perjury. — Perhaps, now that Mr. Mark
Twain is before the people as a candidate for
Governor, he will condescend to explain how he
came to be convicted of perjury by thirty-four
witnesses in Wakawak, Cochin China, in 1883,
the intent of which perjury being to rob a poor
native widow and her helpless family of a
meagre plantain-patch, their only stay and sup
port in their bereavement and desolation. Mr.
Twain owes it to himself, as well as to the great
people whose suftrage he asks to clear this mat
ter up. Will he do it?"
I thought I should have burst, continues
Mark in his narative.
Such a cruel, heartless charge. I never
had seen Cochin China! I never had heard
of Wakawak! I didn't know a plantain
patch from a kangaroo ! I didn't know what
to do. I was crazed and helpless. I let the
day slip without doing anything at all. The
next morning the same paper had this —
"Significant— Mr. Twain, it will he observed
is suggestively silent about the Cochin China
Man: — During the rest of the campaign
this paper never referred to me in any
other way than as the infamous perjurer
Later came another newspaper with the
"The Lie Nailed!— By the sworn affidavits
of Michael O' Flanagan, Esq.. of the Five
Points, and Mr. Snub Rafferty and Mr. Catty
Mulligan, of Water street, is it established that
Mr. Mark Twain's vile statement that the la
mented grandfather of our noble standard bearer
Blank J. Blank, was hanged for highway rob
bery, is a brutal and gratuitous lie, without a
shadow of foil :idation in fact. It is dishearten
ing to virtuous men to see such shameful means
resorted to to achieve political success as the at
tacking of the dead in their graves, and defiling
their honest names with slander. When we
think of the anguish this miserable falsehood
must cause the innocent relatives and lawful
vengeance upon the traJticer. But no ! let ub
leave him to the agony of a lacerated conscience
(though if passion should get the better of the
public, and in the blind fury they should do the
traducer bodily injury, it is but too obvious that
no jury could convict and no court punish the
perpetrators of the deed)."
The ingenious closing sentence had the
effect of moving me out of bed with des
patch that night, and out at the back door
also, while the "outraged and insulted pub
lic" surged in the front way, breaking furni
ture and windows in their righteous indigna
tion as they came, and taking off such prop
erty as they could carry as they went. And
yet I can lay my hand upon the Book aud
say that I never slandered Mr. Blank's
grandfather. More, I had never even heard
of him or mentioned him up to that day and
[I will state, ln passing, that the journal
above quoted from, always referred to me
afterwards as "Twain, the Body Suatchcr."]
The next newspaper article that attracted
attention was the following:
A Sweet Candidate.— Mr. Mark Twain, who
was to make such a blighting speech at the mass
meeting of the Independents last night, didn't
come to time ! A telegram from his physician
stated that he had been knocked down by a
runaway team, and his leg broken in two places
— sufferer lying- in great agony, and so forth,
and so forth, and a lot more bosh of the same
sort. And the Independauts tried hard to swal
low the wretched subterfuge, and pretended that
they did not know what was the real reasou of
the absence of the abandoned creature whom
they denominate their standard bearer. A cer
tain man was seen to reel into Mr, Twain's hotel
last night in a state of beastly intoxication. It
is the imperative duty of the Independents to
prove that this besotted brute was not Mr.
Twain himself. We have them at last! This is
a case that admits of no shirking. The voice
of the people demands in thunder-tones, 'Who
was that man?"
It was incredible, absolutely incredible,
for a moment, tiiat it was really my name
that was coupled with this disgraceful sus
picion. Three long years had passed over
my head since I had tasted ale, beer, wine,
or liquor of any kind.
[It shows what effect the times were hav
ing on me when I say that I saw^^self con
fidently dubbed "Mr. Delirium Tremens
Twain" in the next Issue of that journal
without a pang — notwithstanding I knew
hat with monotonous fidelity the paper would
goon calling me so to the very end.]
By this time anonymous letters were get
ting to be an important part of my mail
matter. This form was common —
"How about that old woman you kiked off
your premisers which was beging?
And this —
"There is things which you have done
which is unbeknowens to anybody but me.
Yout better trot out a few dols. to yours
truly, or you'll hear thro' the papers from
*• Handy Andt."
Thi9 is about the idea. I could continue
them until the reader was surfeited, if desir
Shortly the principal Republican journal
"eonvlcttd" me of wholesale bribery, and
the leading Democrat paper "nailed" an ag
gravated case of blackmailing to me.
[In this I acquired two additional names:
"Twain, the filthy Corruptioniet," and
"Twain, tbe Loathesome Embracer.]
By this this time there had grown such a
clamor for "answers" to all the dreadful
charges that were laid to me that the editors
and leaders of my party 9aid It would be po
litical ruin for me tn remain silent any
longer. As if to make their appeal more
impressive, the following appeared in one
of the papers the very next day.
"Behold the Max! — The Independent
candidate still maintains silence. Because
he dare not speak. Every accusation against
him has been amply proved, and they have
been endorsed and re-endorsed by his own
elegant 9ilence till at this day he stands for
ever convicted. Look upon your candidate,
independents! Look upon tbe infamous,
perjured the Montana thief! the body
snatcher! Contemplate your incarnate de
lirium tremens! your filthy eorruptionist !
yonr loathsome embracer! Gaze upon him
— ponder him well — and then say If you can
give your honest votes to a creature who has
earned this dismal array of titles by his hid
eous crimes, and dares not open his mouth
in denial of any of them."
There was no possible way of getting ont
of it and so in deep humiliation I set about
preparing to "answer" a mass of baseless
charges and wicked falsehoods. Bnt I never
finished tbe task, for the very next morning
a paper came out with a new horror, a fresh
malignity, and seriousiy charged me with
burning a lunatic asylum with all its in
mates, because it obstructed tbe view from
my bouse. This threw me into aaort of
panic. Then came tbe charge of poisoning
my uncle to get his property, with an Im
perative demand that the grave should be
opened. This drove to the verge of distrac
tion. On the top of this I was accused of
employing toothless aud Incompetent old
relatives to prepare the food for the found
ling hospital when I was warden. I was
wavering — wavering' And at last as a due
aud fitting climax to the shameless persecu
iou that party rancour had Inflicted upon
me, nine little toddling children, of all
shades of color and degrees of raggedness,
were taught to rush on to the platform at a
public meeting, and clasp me around the
legs and call Pa!
I gave it up. I hauled down my colors
and surrendered. I was not equal to the re
quirements of a gubernatorial campaign in
the state of New York, and so I sent in my
withdrawal from the candidacy, and in bit
terness of spirit signed It, "Truly yours,
