The Prisoner Had Jnst Been Sentenced For Horse Stealing Kicked the Judge Under a Train While En Konte For the Slate Prison. Belviderk, N. J.f Nov. 23. A desper ate attempt was made here by a condemn ed prisoner to kill the judge who had sen tenced him by hurling him bsneath a train. Bystanders Interceded in time to eave the judge's life, but not before ho had been kicked and severely injured by the desperate man. Among the prisoners arraigned for sen tence yesterday before Judge Morrow, presiding justice of the Warren county court, was Grant Keller, a horse thief, who was sentenced to two years' impris onment. Eeller vowed he would never serve his time, and last night attempted to make good his threat by sawing the liars of his cell. He was caught in the act, and this morning he was arraigned again before Judge Morrow, who lectured him severely and then resentenced him to five years' imprisonment. Keller was furious and was dragged out of the courtroom, struggling madly and shouting that he would have the judge s life if he swung for it. He wa3 taken back to jail, where ho was handcuffed to a ne gro named Edward Wertz, sentenced to two years' imprisonment for highway rob bery, and shortly before 1 o'clock the sheriff started for the railway station with bis prisoners to take the train for Trenton. Kicked Kim Under a Train. Judge Morrow happened to be at the station waiting for tho same train, but Keller paid no particular attention until the train came in and the passengers be gan to hurry aboard. Judge Morrow was stepping on the platform of the parlor car when Keller suddenly broke away from the sheriff, dragging his manacled com rade after bim, and forcing his way through the crowd sprang on tho judgs and hurled him to tho ground. Hampered as he was with tho shackles, tho ruffian could not use his hands effectively, but as Judge Morrow staggered to his feet he kicked him twice in the side, throwing him off the edge of the platform and against the wheels of the car. "I've got you now!" roared tho .mad dened wretch. "I'll pay you out for givin jno five years!" as he followed up his ad vantage by raining kicks on the prostrate form of the judge in furious efforts to force him under the car. Had the train started at that moment Judge Morrow would have been instantly cut to pieces. In tho excitement of the moment not a band in tho crowd was raised to help him .nntil.t.h3 sheriff, vrb") wns t!ie Czai, it, gain his eelf possession, threw himself ou Keller and hurled him back, calling on those around to help him. A dozen men responded, and after a terrific struggle Keller was knocked down and clubbed into submission. Judge Morrow was quickly dragged from his perilous position and proved to bo only slightly injured, only a few of the kicks having taken effect. His clothing, however, was torn, and he was badly shak en up. As soon as it was learned that the judge was safe Keller was hustled aboard the train, but Judge Morrow ordered him to be taken out and carried back to the jail. He will -be rearraigned today, when his sentence will be increased to ten years' imprisonment. Midnight Blaze In Rrooklyn. Brooklyn, Nov. 23.

The Government About Ready to Receivs Proposals For the Buildlac of Battle, ships Kos. 5 and 6 To Cost S4.000.C00, Exclusive of Armament, "WASHI2JGTOX, Nov. 28. On the last day of this month bids will be opened at the navy department for the construction ol two great battleships Nos. 5 and 6 one of which will be christened the Kearsarge, to perpetuate the name of that famous old craft. The cost is not to exceed $4,000,000 each, exclusive of armament, and if a reasonable bid is obtained on3 must be built on the Pacific coast. With 1.S00 tons displacement, 10,000 horsepow er, 16 knot speed, 36S feet of length and 72 feet beam, these will bo the largest ships in our navy. Nevertheless, they will draw but 25 feet of water, with all stores and coal aboard, or two feet less than the battleships already built, and so may be more readily docked and can en ter shallower harbors. A great novelty in these new vessels will be in the arrangement of the guns, for the principal battery of 13 and 8 inch rifles will be placed in double deck turrets, while no less than 14 rapid fire guns of C Inch caliber will be distributed around eaoh ship. The 13 inch guns and the double deck turrets were adopted at the Instance of Chief Constructor Hichborn. The armor protection is complete of Harveylzed nickel steel, 15 inches thick on the barbettes, increasing to 17 Inches on the face of the 13 inch turrets, 16 Inches on the waterline belt and 5 inches above on the sides and on top of all a pro tective deck 2-34 Inches thick, inclined, to deflect a shot. Thick bulkheads are also provided to cut off a raking fire. Splinted bulkheads are placed at exposed points, and back of the waterline armor will be cofferdams filled with American corn pith to exclude water in the event that a shot does perforate an armor plate. Will Be Flagships. As these ships willf undoubtedly be flagships, their complements will be 530 persons officers, seamen and marines. Tho vessels will be driven by triple ex pansion engines, actuating twin screws and five boilers three double ended and two 6ingle ended in four watertight compartments and will generate the steam necessary at a pressure of ISO pounds to the square inch. There will be no speed premiums, a penalty of $1,000,000 a knot being imposed for failure to reach tho contract speed of 10 knots. A comparison of theso vessels with any foreign battleships built or building will in every case be to the advantage of tho United States ships. The United States vessels carry heavier guns and more of them, heavier armor, more widely distrib uted and protecting mere thoroughly tho YitAls jl "fchs shlf. and gun crews. Their normal speed of 16 knots will bo less on paper than that of most foreign battleships, but it should be noted that this speed will be gbtained with a very moderate forced draft and without unduly pushing the engines, so that it may be expected that at any time this speed can be duplicated by our vessels, while it is notorious that foreign battleships never again approach their trial speeds. Tho United States has never fallen into this error as regards its battleships, and in every case has required that the maximum contract speeds should be obtained under conditions which should be reproduced again at any time upon a well drilled ship. The Indiana class are really 16 knot ships, and battleships 5 and 6, which will have about the same extreme speed, will be able to maneuver in company with them very satisfactorily. Resemble the Indiana, In appearance battleships 5 and 6 will ' resemble the Indiana class more than the ; Iowa, but the single huge mast, or rather M J 1 T J . . " 1, t 1 . fl tower, oi me j.naiana win db repjacea oy two graceful masts, and the short smoke stacks of the Indiana will be lengthened in order to enable more power to be de veloped and better speed maintained rather than when working under natural draft alone. Perhaps the most novel fea ture of these vessels and tho one which is distinctly in advance of other battle ships is the overpowering battery of 14 5 inch R. F. guns, thoroughly protected by 6 inches of the best armor. The 5 inch gun is the largest caliber which can bo fired with great rapidity, and the protec tion given these guns is such that it could be pentrated by but few of the guns car ried by any opposing battleship. Expe rience in the recent war between China and Japan indicated that to enable such guns to do their best work they should have more protection than has heretofore been given to them. Great attention has been given in bat tleships 5 and 6 to the maneuvering power and to steadiness as a gun platform. Re ports from the Indiana indicate that she is thoroughly satisfactory in these re spects, but it is thought that the improve ments made upon battleships 5 and 6 will insure even better results. These vessels, when completed, with all of their armor and armament, will cost in the neighborhood of $5,000,000, and there are not many firms in the country capa ble of undertaking such heavy work. They must be completed in three years. Mayor Curtis Accepts. Bostost, Nov. 23. Mayor Curtis has formally aocepted the Republican nomi nation for mayor in a letter addressed to the officers of the recent city convention. It expresses his deep regard for the confi dence reposed in him for recognizing his endeavors to 'promote an efficient, eco nomical, progressive municipal govern ment and reviews the special manner in which in eaoh department he has endeav ored to direct the administration so that the citizens of Boston received the best possible results for their taxes paid.

New York, Nov. 23. James F. Lynch of 415 West Fifty-third street was com mitted to the Tombs without bail on a charge of having murdered his 9-months-old child Arthur: The child died at the Roosevelt hospital from a fracture of the base of the skull. The brutal father had hurled it to the floor and beaten its head against the fur niture. Lynoh made no statement to the coro ner. He at with a surly look on his face, while hi3 wife a pretty, golden haired young woman told between sobs what she knew of her child's death. Lynch, who is a dry goods clerk, is a powerfully built young man. He and his wife, who is a delicate little woman, came here six months ago and went to live on the third floor of the tenement at 415 West Fifty-third street. Ho has not worked since, but spent what little money he had In drink. Lynch returned home intoxicated, and, as usual, began to abuse his poor wife. He hurled Insults at her and threatened her and the baby. The woman tried to leave the rooms, and he drew a ponknife, and, flourishing It in her face, threatened to kill the baby. "I have a good mind to do up the brat now," he shouted. Tho wife sought safety with neighbors. He later followed her and ordered her to return to her apartments, but she was afraid of him and would not do so. She finally accompanied him tip stairs. "When they entered their apartments, the husband snatched the child from her arms and threatened to kill it. The woman tried to get into the rooms to protect her child, but the man slammed the door in her face and swore at her. The terrorized woman ran down stairs and waited until she thought her husband was sleeping. Then she went up to her rooms again. The man let her in. The babe was in bed. Its head was buried be tween two pillows, as if the wretch had tried to smother it. The mother grabbed the baby from the bed and found that It was bleeding from the nose and mouth. Sho ran, screaming, out of her rooms with the babe, which she gave to a neighbor while she went out and summoned a policeman. The child was apparently In a dying condition, and the policeman summoned an ambulanoe. The surgeon - said the child's skull was fractured, and that it could not live. Policeman Pearce went up to arrest Lynch and had a struggle with him, dur ing which Ly"nch bit tho policeman's fin ger. Lynch was finally locked up in the Nvost Forty-seventh street station. Mrs. Lynch said she and her husband formerly lived in State street, Chicago, and her husband was well connected. TURKS AND ARMENIANS. TheJr- Troubles Still Continue, and Bloody (Assizes May Follow Massacres. Constantinople, Nov. 23. The sultan has offered rewards for the disoovery of the persons who recently posted revolu tionary placards at the mosques and In many other public places, exoiting tho Armenians against the Mussulmans. A special committee has also been appointed to watch day and night until adequate results are obtained In the restoration of order among the Armenians. A large number of Turks wero arrested in this oity at daybreak: They were hur ried to the harbor and placed on board a ship. Their destination and the reasons for tho arrests cannot now be determined. Unless the courts which the sultan has promised to establish in Armenia are care fully supervised there will be a bloody assize after the massacres. Some of these courts to be established have the right of rendering a final decision upon all ques tions arising, and it is feared that many of the Turks will take advantage of this fact for the purpose of securing a speedy and sure vengeanoe while ostensibly com plying with all tho forms of the law. All the foreign and American papers giving accounts of the revolt of the Arabs in the province of Yemen, Arabia, have been forbidden admission to all towns of the Turkish empire. The Missions In Marash. Boston, Nov. 28.

FATHER PRESTON OF DANIELSONVILLE COMING TO WATERBURY. A Portion of St Patrick's and the Immacu late Conception Parishes Cut Off With Waterville as a Mission The Rev James Smith Will Probably Succeed Father Duggan. The death of Rev Father Duggan of St Patrick's parish has brought about a change in this city which many people have been anxiously looking forward to for a number of years. Last spring when a committee representing the Catholic people of the South end pe titioned Right Rev Bishop Tieruey for the formatiou of a new parish in that sec tion, the revernd bishop answered through Vicar General Mulcahy, that owing to the present condition of St Patrick's parish building he did not deem it prudent to make a change at that time, but added that at the close of the current year he might be able to see his way towards doing something in this direction. The committee accepted this answer as equivalant toja promise to com ply with the request at the close of the present year. Since that time nothing was thought of the matter until after the death of Father Duggan, when the subject came up fof discussion. To-day the Democrat is able to announce the fact that Right Rev Bishop Tierney has made good his promise and has formed a new parish iu the south end of the city and has, it is understood, appointed Rev Thomas Preston, of Danielsonville, one of the most popular priests in the dio cese, to i preside over the spiritual wel fare of the new flock. The lines are not yet 'fully defined, but it is stated that the new parish will commence at Pleasant street and will include all the territory south of this point which originally belonged in the Immaculate Conception aud St Pat rick's parishes, running as far west as the east " side of South Main street, thence southerly to the town line. It is one of the most desirable parishes in Waterbury. The place is thickly set tled by an industrious class of people and there are perhaps not over a dozen families other than Roman Catholics residing in the whole place. It includes many of the pioneer Catholics of the town who attended divine service in the old building on East Maiu and remem ber evcrv . pastor that ministered in Waterbury for over sixtv years. It is understood that the site of the new edifice will not be determined until the new pastor looks over the ground. It is said that Waterville will, be a mission of the new parish. Much speculation is being indulged in as to the name of the priest who will succeed Father Dug-ffan, but as far as we have been able to ascertain, it is quite probable that Rev. James J. Smith of the parish of St Lawrence O'Toole, of Hartford, will be appointed to the position. At least that is the report mat comes ny way oi nartiord. CONNECTICUT INDUSTRIES.

FINED FOR PRAYING. DW1GHT DEWS HEAVILY PUNISHED BY JUDGE COWELL ratrjefc Creedon Sent to Jail Fop Thirty Kays For Non-Support The Judge Tells Creedon He Trill Order Him to Bo Drowned the Xext Time. City court had a peculiar case this morning and a man was heavily fined for praying so loud that he disturbed the neighborhood. Dwight Dews and Charles Healey were around together last night and Dews drank a few glasses of beer. He rooms at 3Irs Skiduiore's 32 Abbott avenue. The men started for home about quarter to twelve. Peter Bowe rooms with Dews, but Healey was prevailed upon by Dews to remain in the room with them. They all re tired, but , about 1 o'clock Dews arose, lighted the lamp and immediately began praying. He mingled curse3 with his prayers and awoke, all the other boarders and roomers in the building, Levi Skidiuore, a son of "the landlady, went to Dews' room and asked him to be quiet. That caused a quarrel and Skidmore started for a policeman. Dews attacked him and gave him a few marks on, the face. Mrs Skidmore, an old lad', interfered, and was so badly shaken up that she could scarcely walk in court this morning. There was onfy a charge of breach of the peace against Dews, but another complaint for assault was immediately made out. Skidmore said he was sorry for Dews, but he was addicted to those spells. The old lady told how Dews knocked her down and dragged her around the room. Dews gave but a poor explanation of his con duct. Judge Lowe, who defended him, said he should not have been disturbed in his spiritualistic devotions. -"Spirits of frumenti, more likely,' said Judge Co well. 'I am going to hold that it is a breach of the peace to saj- prayers out loud enough to annoy the 'neighborhood. I will stop that kind of prayers if I can." He fined Dews 25 and costs and 40 and costs. Patrick Creedon was up again for non support. Six weeks ago he got out of jail. His wife said he worked for two weeks after getting out and then he went at his old tricks, ne was very abusive and used filthy language. She supported her five children b- washing.
