itself to sneering at the engineers i. in

friends of the northern route have caused,
and are likely to cause to the extent of
endangering the entire project, by aay

said: "No wrk is contemplated

New York, Aug. 29. One of the most
mysterious of Coney Island's myateries is
the disappearance of a mau and young
woman who were bathing at Palmer's pa
vilion on? Thursday evening. The disap
pearance was discovered at b o'clock, when
the pavilion was being closed up for the
night. An employe in the men's part of
the pavilion found one of the bath houses
locked. The door was forced open aud a
man's clothes were found. Shortly after
ward a bath house in the women's part
was found locked. - This also was foreed
open and a woman's clothing found.
Doubt of a Drowning Affair.
The employes did not remember the
man. Mrs. Thompson, who has charge of
the wnmen'a section, has but a slight rec
ollection of the woman. The clothing
worn by each was of very ordinary quali
ty. In the mair's pockets were found a
gold watch and chain and a little money.
A tortoise shell hair comb, a purse con
taining 10 cents, and a patr of silk mittens
were found in the pocket of the woman's
dress. The police are inclined to doubt
that the missing persons were drowned.
One theory is that the couple eloped. It
is supposed by some that they lelt their
clothes in the bath pavilion and had oth
ers at some couveuieut place.
