Hoboken, N. J., April 21. Early yes
terday morning Angelo Gaboth, aged 35,
of Stone street, New York, murdered his
mother-in-law, dangerously stabbed his
father-in-law, and was slain by Cono
guito Chinchella, aged 18, a son of the
murdered woman. A fierce fight fol
lowed, in which Gaboth's wife and her
brother received stab and pistol shot
wounds. The row occurred - at 195 Grand
street. The house is a tenement. Gaboth
and his wife, who is the daughter of
Chinchella, were visiting the Chinchel-
laa. Gaboth is a worthless fellow. It ia
believed be visited the Cbinchellae for the
punpose of robbing his father-in-law and
obtaining a certaiu sum of money whioh
he knew him to possess. Sunday night
Mrs. Gaboth slept with her mother.
Gaboth himself slept in the same bed
with his father-in-law. In another room
the sons of Chinchella, named respective
ly Coaognito and Anselmo, had retired
for the tiight.
Gaboth ltegiin Tils Bloody Work.
About 12:33 yesterday morning, when
all were soundly sleeping, Gaboth, armed
with a stiletto, arose from the bed aud
noiselessly glided into his mother in-law'
room. Leaning over the sleeping woman
hi plunged the weapon into her abdomen
and then with a semi-circular sweep of

She died almost instantly. Her cry part

it, aud soon fell asleep again. Gaboth's
wife, who was sleeping with her mother,
m ide no sound, but remained perfectly
quiet. The blood from her mother's hor-
r.ble wound literally covered her, but Mill
sue did not stir. There is no doubt, tliat
s!ie was well aware of what her husband
was doinsr, aud it lucks as if she was a
party to the plot to murder her telatives.

in-law slept. A moment later be thrmt

band. He evidently meant to end the old
man's life with one blow. His aim was
bad. and he missed tbe vital spot, but the
knite made a ragged wound iu Mr. Chin
ohella's throat. The wounded man gave
a shriek, which awakened bis son Con-
oauito. He sprau from bis bed and
rushed into bis father's room. He was
met by Gaboth with the stiletto dripping
with blood in bis uplifted band. Con-
Oiinto was also armed with a stiletto.
Gaboth struck a vicious blow , at the son.

followed. L p aud down tbe two men

floor a corpse. Gaboth's wife, realizing
that ber husband had been killed, gave
vent to a succession of screams. Her
lamentations could be heard a block off.
A Terrible Scene of Blood.
The neighbors were aroused and broke
into the apartments of the Cbincbellas.
On tbe floor lay the body of Ga
both drenched iu blood. His wife
lay ou his prostrate form, her
blood mingling with his. On the bed
lay old Chinchella with blood pouring
from the ragged wound in his throat. He
was unable to speak. In the next room
lay tbe dead and horribly mutilated body
of old Mrs. Chinchella. The bed was
soaked with her blood. The Chinchilla
boys then told the story of Gaboth's crime
and of the slaying of Gaboth by one of
them. Conoguito said: "I killed this
man," pointing to the bady of Ga
both. He then put on his hat and pro

Tbe police in their investigation of the
apartments of tbe Chinchella family dis
covered a 42 -calibre revolver with three

new phase. Young Chinchella told the
police that it belonged to Gaboth, who.
he said, had it in addition to tbe deadly
stiletto. He supposed that Gaboth in
tended to finish up his work with it. He
ays that in his struggle with Gaboth the
latter drew his revolver, and holding it in
his left hand fired three shots at him.
He was so excited his aim was bad. Ga

brother were near him engaged in a strug

All three of the bullets took effect in

very critical condition. She is more ser

CHRISTIAN AND BEELZEBUB AGAIN.
A Battle of Song; In Which, the Devil
New York, April 2L There was a bat
tle of song between Christians aud sin
ners on the Pennsylvania railroad ferry
boat Hudson City on her tnip from Jersey
City Sunday night at half past) 10. It
was a train boat, and was crowded with
passengers. Among the last to get on
were five welWdressed women. They live
in New York, and! they had been in Jersey
City aiding in establishing the first of tbe
dozen missions that are to be established
in the lower part of that city. They
walked throirgh the cabin to the front of
tbe boat When the boat was in mid
stream they began singing the hymn,
"Wait for Jesus." They bad strong and
musical voices. In a moment the passen
gers began to come out of the cabins. The
crowd joined in on tbe chorus, and the
music could be heard from sqore to shore.
Old "Satan Finds Some Mischief Still."
The devil heard it, accepted the chal
lenge, and caused five young men from
the crowd to do battle for him. With his
usual cunning he armed his agents with
ndteule, kuowfng well that would quick
est destroy and good that mfght be done
by the hymns. The women began singing
the third verse of tbe hymn, and one of the
"agents" cried: "Now," in a deep baas
voice and the other voice began singing:
"Vbu've been drinking, you've been drink
ing, you've beea drinking just now.
'Just now yon've been drinking, you've
been drinking jnat now."
They sang it to the tune of "Come to
Jesus Just Now." Such a shout of
laughter went up from the crowd that the
voices of all the singers were drowned.
When ic died out a little the women
could be beard singing again "How
Blessed to Kneel at the Savior's Feet"
they had won the first battle.
How the Battle Ended.
Tbe young men were silenced for a mo
ment. Their effort had winded them. They
began singing again "I Bought a Chicken
for Fifty Ceuts," The voices of the women
could be heard over them. Satau changed
tbe tune agaiu and his agents sang
"You're a Liar, You're a Liar," also to the
tune of "Come 'to Jesus." The women
stuck to tbe hymn they were singing.
The boat was in the slip when the devil
made some one shout, "Three cheers for
hell." Weak ones were given, while the
women sang '-Glory to Gol in the High
est." So the battle ended. The women
certainly had tbe advantage, as well as
tbe sympathy of tbe crowd, who admired
