coolly told that iff the fault of Com
missioner Black, who nnder estimated the
amounts that would be required. It is
true he did "under estimate,' but at that
time be did not know that the depart

asked for more money than had ever been
' appropriated, and of course the amount
would have been ample for a reasonably
honest administration of the department.

special attention to it until last night, when
it became unbearable. She then notified the

Tbe gas was found turned on, both at the

One Woman Frightfully Wounded.
Three of tbe women were stretched at full
length on the floor and half naked. The old

from an ugly wound in tbe head and covered
har face and body. Her right eye was al
most torn from the socket, and the face was
swollen. Another woman was sitting on a
rocking ebair near tbe front window, with
her arms fokleiL One of tbe men was found
in tbe rear ot the bouse lying on a cot. He
was tbe keeper of tbe dive, and was named
Qertada. He was about 80 years olL His

more than a year. The other man was
found in a sitting posture, with his head
resting on tbe bed on which Gertade was
lying. The dnad persons were seen last about

the gas blowing out suffocated them.

to-day. .Tbey ar framed under the Merritt
conspiracy law, .which was passed by the
state legislature k-nmed lately fallowing the
execution of tbe Anarchist. Lawyers call it
an "omnibus law," on account of its wide
ramifications. Under its provisions if a man

in Illinois, has expressed the opinion that ii
victim ought to be put out of tbe way, or
"removed," is liable to be indicted for tbe
murder. " -

Waller Tells What Be Raw While Across

LoNDOir, June 29. Despite the immense
wealth of the Earl of Fife, whose engage
ment is just - announced to the - Princess
Louise, it is believed that parliament will bs
called upon to dower tbe bride. The Star
raises a howl in anticipation of this demand,
and calls upon Gladstone to take a firm stand
in opposition to all dowries in the future
until such time as the whole system of
upport for the offspring of royalty can' be
settled. There are at the presont time still
twenty -three princes and princesses uupro
ribd with consorts, and if claims of this
nature are to continue to meet with recognl
'ion, the total demand upon the public treas
ury wUl be something appalling.

The nine children of the queen have so far
iost tbe country, in cold cash, the suug sum

partial relief from tbe burdens which a pro
vision for royal princes impose, that the sons

jould be afforded to tbe taxpayers, while the

EX-CONSUL WALLER'S COMMENTS.
His Opinion of Minister Lincoln. John
New, and the BritUh Nobility. .
xi kw xork, June w. me Htar bas an
interview with ex-Consul General Waller,
who has recently . returned from London.
Speaking of Minister Lincoln, Mr. Waller
said: "I met Minister Lincoln just before
saueu 1 or noma tie impressed me very
favorably. Mr. Lincoln made an address
at a meeting of American engineers
last week and did remarkably
weu. no wui, t am sure,
prove a popular minister both iu London
and Amerio v It is a difficult thiug to be an
English minister and suit both the English
aim American people, it is because there is
so much scraping and bowing. Now, even
Mr. Phelps, who was truly one of the most
democratic ministers this country ever sent
abroad, was accused of putting on too much
01 tne English airs by Americans who saw
him in London."
The Koblllty Mostly Gentlemen. -
Of the nobility of England Mr. Waller
said: "I found the nobility of England very
aiuerent to what tbey are painted. My im
pression of them was that, as a rule, they are
gentlemea There is bo much servility in
knglaud that I wonder tbe nobility is made
01 men one-balf so good as those that now
compose it" Mr. Waller said he had
oeen treated during his four years'
resiuence in England with the great
est kindness. He thought the prince of
W alee would make a good king. Of John
C New, Waller's successor, he said: "He has
tbe reins well in hand, and will no doubt get
on admirably. He is a very courteous gen-
ueman, ana impresses rue ravorably."

Hans Crcesner. He rushed up two flights of
stairs, burst into the room where Gessner
was still in a deep sleep, and, without a mo
ment's warning shot him dead. He then
blew out bis own brains. Tbe cause of the
rash act was undoubtedly jealousy. Both
men were in love with the same woman, an
actress of some note, and the lady's par

New London, Conn., June 29. The four
teenth annual 4-mile straightaway, eight
oared race, between the Tale and Harvard
crews, was rowed last evening over the
Thames river course from Winthrop's Point
to Gale's ferry, and was won by Yale by six
boat lengths. Official time: Yale, 21:30;
Harvard, 21 :55. The series ot races between
these colleges stand: Tale won 8, Harvard
won 6. There was a very large crowd of
spectators, and every point of view along the
four miles was closely packed with people,
who cheered each crew wildly.
A See-Saw Race at the Start.
The word "go" was given at 7:30 p. m. and
Harvard caught the water first, her shell
forging ahead of Tale by half a length. Har
vard held her lead for about 190 yards; then
Tale began to gain atsvery stroke, and at
the quarter-mile post They were on even
terms. Yale then took a lead of about ten
feet, and for the next quarter of a mile
neither could gain an inch. Just at the half
mile flag Harvard worked her shell up on
even terms with her opponent, and the flag
pole was passed in 2:28 with the boats bow
and bow, Yale pulling 30 and Harvard 82
strokes per minute. Just after passing tbe
half mile flag Harvard took a lead of aboi
ton feet This she held but a few seconds,
Yale spurting and running her stroke up to
33. Yale then gained a lead of a quarter of
a length, passing the mile flag with Har
vard two seconds behind, pulling a Sl-stroka
me bpurt Settled tbe Race.
This 81urt settled the
ally increased her lead, being a length ahead
at the 1 mile flag. Yale then dropped her
stroke to 30, while Harvard increased hers
to 33. The effects of the hard race for the
IK miles was plainly visible in the Harvard
boat Yale, however, was outline in nerfect
form, every man in the boat sliding as one
man aim lining ineir oars in perfect time.
Tale's Lead Four Lengths.
At the 'J milxs Yale showed a boat's
length of clear water. After passiug the
Smiles flag, Tale's long. Bweenhm stroke
sent her further and further ahead, and at
tne muea flag they had a lead of
fully four lengths. Prom the 2K miles flag
to the 3.' miles flag the positions remained
tbe sanid, both crews pulling 32 strokes a
Winning as They Please.
After passing the 3 miles flag Tale
gradually increased their load, pulling well
within themselves and with no apparent
effort In the Harvard boat things were

Harvard lost because her men were not so
weu taught as tbe Tale boys, an J because
their stroke, even at the rate of 34, was not
so effective as the Tale's at 3a At 30 the
Harvard men pulled well together, but when

men were unable to hold their own, and
