New Yoi:k, June 2. A remarkable
series of fatalities has followed the treat
ment of a woman suffering from catarrh
by the physicians of the Manhattan Eye
and Ear hospital. Upon three different
occasions this woman has placed herself
under the care of physicians at the hos
pital. If she .should present herself again
she will be referred to some other institu
tion, as not one of the hospital surgeons
would le willing to lo anything for her.
Opposite her name in the hospital regis
ter have been written the words in a bold
hand: "The fatal patient."
Two Heaths in Two Visits, Sfs?
The woman tirst called iK the hospital
two years ago. Cabinet I), where nose and
throat diseases are treated, was at that
time under the charge of Dr. Johnson, who
died almost immediately after treatiug
her. The next occupant of cabinet D was
Dr. Pond, anil he was in charge when the
'"fatal patient" made her secoud visit to
the institution. His death followed soon
after. For a year ami a half the woman
kept away from the eye and ear hospital,
but at length, as Uer old complaint was le
ginning to hther her again, she called
again last Wednesday.
Only uw Her Once.
To the gentleman she first saw in the
building sLe remarked that she thought it
probable that the doctors might hesitate
about treatiug her in view of the fate of
the two who had lief ore undertaken to al
leviate her troubles. She was again re
ferred to cabinet IX where Dr. David Phil
lips had succeeded Dr. Pond. After seeing
the "-fatal patient" for the first time on
Wednesday, Dr. Phillips went to his home
at 131 East Eighty-sixth street. In the

An English Scandal.
Jxxno', June 2. The suit for slander
In ought by Sir William Gordon CuniminK
against Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wilson and
others for circulating the story that Cum
tning'vas detected cheating at cards at the
house pf the Wilsons, was begun yester
day. The Priuce of Wales is one of the
witnesses for the plaintiff, and when he
Came into court was given a seat on the
bench by the side of Judge Coleridge. The
court room was packed with aristocrats,
many of them ladies, while hundreds were
unable to obtain cards of admission, ow
iug to the room being too small.
History of the Case.
Last whiter there waa a house party at
thecouutry homeof Arthur Wilson, a mill
ionaire ship-owner, aud among the guests
were the parties to this suit, including the
prince of Wales. To pass away the time
the gue.sts played cards frequently, as is
the custom in this country, and baccarat 1
was one of the games, the prince taking a
hand. The story is that when it came t he
princt's turn to keep the- lauk he noticed
that Sir Gordon Cumming, one of the
players who sat directly opposite him. was
winning heavily and lositig lightly. Sus
pecting some queer play the prince
watched him closely, and. it is alleged, de
tected peculiar proceedings. Iu his hand
the baronet held several pieces of gold.
These he would surreptitiously add to his
stake when he won, while he would slyly
reduce his liet when he lost.
Ienoiiiirl as a Sw indler.
Suddenly he was caught in the act, de
nounced as a swindler, and the friendly
game wound up in a row. He protested
his innocence, hut his accusers were lirm.
The prince finally- interfered and sug
gested arbitration by two gentlemen
present, he to name them. This was
agreed to, and the arbitrators decided that
all further reference to the matter would
be dropped if Sir Gordon would sign an
agreement never to play Kiccarat again.
He agreed to the terms aud signed. Un
fortunately for all concerned there was a
lady in the house who disliked the baronet.
Her husband, who had witnessed the row,
told her of it. and she spread the story,
sir William's Testimony.
Sir William took the stand first yester
yesterday, and denied that he had" lieeu
guilty of cheating. He said he won lie
cause he had a remarkable run of luck;
that when he signed the agreement never
to play again, he did so liecause advised to
by the two uetitlemen selected as arbi
trators, ami told them he much preferred
to resent the insult by giviug his accusers
an insult in return. He said that the
prince told him that there were five per
sons who insisted that helSir William) had
been guilty, and asked what could one do
against live. He finally signed the agree
ment under persuasion. He closed with a
s.iemn denial of the charge. The agree
ment does not admit iu terms the charge I
against Cumming. hut admits that l.e l-e- j
lieves that those making the charges be-I
lieve tliem to te true.

Mr. Cleveland, too, has gone out of his
way recently to appiy offensive epithets to
the south. In his address to his German
friends at Buffalo the other day he went
out of his way to insult the south. "When
the government was assailed by rebellious

to the late war. Nolody nowadays wants
to make an issue a!jut the vocabulary
that should lie applied to that momentous
event, but. to say the least, it was very
bad taste in Mr. Cleveland to go out of-his
