21ST YEAR--N0- 6,513.
It I Decided to Itccominenil nn Isstio
or $300,000 Worth or Repair Homls
Agreement Villi tho Georgetown
The corner of Thirty-first nnd M
Mtccls, lu Georgetown, vrat livelier this
morning thnn ithasbccnslncctliollood
Solid-looking business men stopped
llielr wonted business bustlo nnd hurry
nnd stood on the comers nnd talked,
'i'ho conversation wns nil of tho canal,
and every posstblo phaso of tho subject
was canvassed nnd reennvnsscd. Mean
while, upstairs In President anmbrlll's
ofllco tho canal's dlrcctornto wns hold
ing a stnr-chambcr session.
What they talked of or what thcvdld
cannot bo known, ns nil thc directors
ivcio closo-mouthed ns good-natured
men could bo when they camo out.
Only four members of tho boaid of til.
lcelois wcio present, beside President
Gnmbttll. Thoy wcio Colonel J. a.
Jlctiet, 11. O. Dobbin, P. Hnrrill nnd .!.
I). Ahnct. Trcnsuicr Spencer AVil
kiiis and John P. Ayics, tho ncottnt
ant, wcio nlso present. In tho little
knot of pcoplo waiting In tho outer
olllcc for tho directors to finish their
meeting were a couplo of Baltimore
lawyers, who wcro supposed to bo look
ing after tho Interests of Baltimore
holders of canal securities.
The directors' meeting lasted nearly
an hour, and though nothing was done
that they wcro willing to mako public,
It was learned that tho time was mostly
devoted to the consideration of existing
lenses on tho canal property.
Mcanwhllotho crowd of Interested
outsiders waited on tho corner for tho
directors to come out nnd for President
Gumbrlll to go up Into Croplcy's Hnll
on tho corner diagonally opposite the
bank, nnd call tho meeting to order.
Tho hall Is a big ono on the third floor,
and when tho meeting was called to
Older about 11:30, tho wooden benches
wcro well filled, nnd nbout all tho busi
ness men In Georgetown wcro thcie.
Besides theso there wcio Hon. Edward
Stake of Maryland, Victor Cushwa of
AVIlllnmsport, Frederick Mcrtcns of
Maryland, P. T. Llttlo of Maryland
nnd John Burets of Maryland. II. 0.
AVInshlp was probably, nftcr the
Canal Company, himself, tho heaviest
sufferer by tho Hood present.
At long past 11 President Gnmbrlll
stood up on the raised platform at tho
front end of tho hall nnd called thn
meeting to order. Ho said that tho
meeting was called In pursuanco to tho
nan loimuintcu in Annapolis last week.
I'his plan, he said, was to Issue S200.O00
worth of bonds, or toll certificates, or
both, and to repair tho canal ns quickly
ns posslblo with tho money so lnlsed.
"Wo should bo glad to hear from any
one hcio who may bo Interested In tho
matter." No ono said a word. There
was nn awkward sort of u pauso of
some minutes duration nnd then Presi
dent Gnmbrlll asked Colonel Borret,
ono of tho directors, to make a speech.
Colonel Bcrret arose and. told wh.it.tho
canal needed. Ho said the canal was
now nt n crista In Its history nnd that
tho problem needed heroic treatment.
"And It remains to bo seen whether we
will find tho hero." He thought that
tho Stato of Maryland should take hold
of tho matter nnd double tho canal's
capacity, as tho Stato of Now York did
with the Erlo Canal. If this was douo
the cnnal could not but bo successful.
Mi . II. "W. Blount of Georgetown said :
"Wo are willing to luteiest omselves
In this matter nnd Invest our money.
But I wish to ask: Whatsecuiltyshnuld
wo get?"
"NoBecuilty, virtually no security,"
nusweted Colonel Berrct. "Tho cnnal
has not security to offer, unless this
proposal that tho State of Maryland
shall plnco their new bonds on nn equal
fooling with tho bonds of 1881. If the
Stato Is willing to do this, ns It should
bo, these bonds will bo ns good sccuilty
ns the former 'ones.'
"Another thing I wish to nsk of the
leinesentntivcs of tho cnnal comn.inv
now heio Is this: What will the coin,
panyglvo? What will be tho amount
of tho subscilptlou that tho directors
nnd owners of tho cnnal will give to the
fund toicstore this canal? They me
tho parties most Interested, too, In tho
canal testoratlon, ami they should bo
tho ones flist to show their confidence
by n liberal contribution."
All this while tho discussion had
kept on the subject of the restoration of
the wholo canal, Tho general impres
sion had been that this meeting would
bo for tho purposo of devising somo
means of jcpalrlng tho Georgetown
level so that water would bo supplied
to tho w'hcels of tho Georgetown mills.
P. L. Mooio of Georgetown got up
and 6ald that most of tho Georgetown
people present wcro principally in
tciesled in this phnso of the mnttcr. "I
wish to ask," Mr. Mooro said, "whether,
In caso tho money necessary to tho re
pit of tho Georgetown level Is raised,
if tho tccclpts from water rents will bo
deposited In bank Immediately as they
nie collected and used to lcliubuiso the
subscribers to tho fund for this work?"
"They will, certainly," answered
Colonel lionet, who hail taken Presi
dent Gnmbilll's placo ns chnhmau of
tho meeting.
"Then tho money will be raised In
twenty four horns," answered Mr.
Mr. Mooie's remark elicited tho llrst
npplnuso of tho meeting, nnd It was
hearty and sustained. Mr. Mooro had
si nick n key-note. The canal people's
dcslio to treat the repair of tho George
town level as a shlo issue, which It is,
of course, to them, was llltlo icllshcd
by tho Gcorgctowncis, who formed
most of tho ctowd, nnd Mr. Mooie's
switching tho pioceedlngs off onto the
Georgetown tack won their entire up
pioval nnd applause.
Mr, Mooro wished somo Idea given
him nbout how tho money so inlsed
would bo used and how soon thoy could
expect to feel beneficial icsults from
their subscilptlons.
Picsldcnt tlambilll said that tho mat
ter Imcl been talked over by a commltteo
icpiesentlng tho milling lntciosts nnd
himself, nnd that oveiythlng had
Uituully been nitnngcd save some
minor details. Ho said that tho money
wns not given tho cnnal company, but.
meiely loaned ,lt, nnd that the canal
company would hnvo to be paid back;
the canal company wished to hnvo a
voice lu tho e.xneiuliluio of tho mouoy,
They were willing to hnvo tho woik
dono either by continct or undci tholr
own supci vision. All they w Ishcd was
that tho woik should bo piopetlynnd
economically dono. Mr. Mooio said
this would bo agreed to, Mr. II. 0.
AYInshlp w'ns called on by Colonel Dor
ic! to say something, and ho got up and
said that, though ho was much In
tcirsted In tho report of the canal, ho
wished to ask a question, "You say,"
ho said, "that this canal has no good
security to offer nnd Is- unable to help
Itself without assNlnnce. What I wish
to nsk It, Is tho canal company bank
rupt?" "Yes," answered Colonel Berrct, "It
certainly Is. Tho canal Is pennllosi
ami without credit, nnd Is unnblo to
help Itself by Itself without assistance."
"That is what I wished to know,"
continued Mr. AVInshlp. 'Tho discus
sion promised to become general, nnd
was inpltlly doing so when
Dr. AVootton checked this tendency
Dr. AVoolton motctl that ns that mat
ter wns decided, nnil as tlmo was pro
clous, attention should bo given to the
npnlrof the canal as n whole nnd to
measures for putting It In condition for
the transaction of shipping business
along Its length. To this end the
Doctor, n whltc-halrcd old man, with n
shrewd face nnd n pleasant manner,
moved that n committee, consisting of
two gentlemen from each county repre
sented In tho meeting, bo nppolntctl to
confer nnd formulnto somo plan and
submit It to tho meeting at il o'clock
this afternoon. This motion wns
pased, nnd tho commltteo was ap
pointed ns follows:
Dlstilct of Colurabla-O. W. Clssclt ana
II. C. Wlnslifp. Alcgany County Freder
ick Mcrtcns ami 0. J. Orrlck. Washing
ton Coimtv Edward Strako and Victor
Cushwcll. Montgomery County Dr. Woot
ton and James T. Trundle. Frederick
County benjamin Crampton and 0. T.
Tho meeting was then adjourned
until D o'clock, but nftcrwnrd the com
mittee was instructed to bring In Its
report nt 1 o'clock, nnd the meeting nd
Journcd till Hint hour.
The committee, of which Dr. AVoottcn
nctcd ns chairman, gathered In n little
knot ut the lower end of the hnll and
talked over tho matter, tho discussion
being much facilitated by the reduction
of tho number of discussers. Tliov nro
nil or them middle aged or old men,
who nro familiar with tho canal's his
tory for years past, nnd their discussion
wns principally n? to what the Sta.oof
Maiylnnd could be got to do-In the way
of helping the cnnnl, cither by nppro
printing money or by waiving Its unpaid
bonds In favor of tho proposed now to
pair bonds.
Tho committee's discussion wns cut
short by tho arrival of tho hour for the
icassemblago of tho meeting, nnd they
formulated n pioposltlon similar to that
adopted at Cumberland. This Is tho
same scheme for tho Issue of $300,000
worth of bonds to be put on tho
same footing ns tho bonds of '7d
that was nuthoilcd by tho meet
Ing of tho stockholders In An
napolls. It contained n second
lesolutlon, setting forth u second propo
sition by which, If tho bonds could not
bo floated, they wcro to bo taken by n
syndicate, which should do tho work.
The report met the nppioval of the
meeting and then It adjourned to meet
ngnln at tho call of the ehnlrman.
The Georgetown millers' nffaiis were
lather lost sight of In the iluiry nftcr
the recess nnd nothing mora was said
of them In tho meeting, but tho milieu
iinu canal peopio succeeded In coming
to nn agreement. Ills that the millers
and their friends should collect enough
inonc- to repair tho Georgetown
level to furnish the mills water-power.
This money Is to bo deposited In bank
nnd bo subject only to tho Joint check
of tho picsldcnt of tho Cnnal Company
nnd tho treasurer selected by tho mil
lers' committee. Tho contract for tho
work Is to bo let by tho Canal Company,
nnd tho woik Is to be dono under the
supen Islon of its ofllccrs nnd cnclnecrs.
Of course, If ntnny tlmo tho work don't
meet the npprovid of tho canal
people, President Gnmbilll will not
sign cheeks for tho rout Motor's pay
ment. Both tho cnnal directors and tho
millers nnd their friends hnvo ratllled
this agreement, nnd tho contract Is to
bo .signed probably this afternoon.
AVoik is to be begun nt once.

Tlio Verdict or tho Jury In tho Cmo
or S, II. Cunningham.
At 10:15 this morning tho Jury In tho caso
of Sjuncy II. Ciiiinliijrham, charged with
assault to kill on Turner Il,,Hacl.man,n rid
ing pago In tho Senate, returned a verdict
of "guilty of slmplo assault." Sir. Cun
ningham was entirely self-possessed w lion
tho verdict was announced, his face nlone
showing signs of worry.
Ills counsel moicil that he bo admitted to
ball pending tho decision ot a motion for a
new trial. To this Mr. Lipscomb objected,
and after a consultation of counsel nu both
sides, Mr. Garnctt announced that they
wcro willing to withdraw tlio application
for ball, ar Mr. Lipscomb had Just told
them that the Government would be satisfied
with the Imposition of a line.
Judgo Ilradlcy commented on tho caso!
with great severity, and for a time It looked '
nslf ho had mado up his mind to send Mr.
Cunningham to Jail.
"I hao considered this fptostlon," said
tho Cotitt, "and It has occurred to me that
the ends of Justlco will bo best subserved
by Imposing tho penalty ot a flno for tho
reason that tho defendant Is an cfllcer tif
the Government, filling a responsible posi
tion. Hut It ecems to me that, although tho
conviction of tho oftenso of slmplo assault
Is a cry gravo one, tho position ot tho
defendant Instead ot mlllgntlugaud palliat
ing tho ofTcnso would enhance Its gravity
and Importance. I think that a man who
had reached tho ago of -10 and who
fills tho responsible position ot this defend
ant ought to havo learned to curb his tem
per and to restrain his anger. Hat kman Is
nmanof only 23jears and very slight In
build; relatively considered ho Is n mero
boy, though a man In jcais. Tho defend
ant Is six feet, heavy In build nnd looks to
bo athletic. That n man ot his years ami
physical proportions should arm himself
and seek uu encounter with n man ot Mr.
Hackman's slzo seems to mo entirely Inex
cusable. It thcro had been no pistol, tho
affair would hao coded In a mero tussle.
I will rejoice when Congress In Its wisdom
will mako It a penitentiary ofTcnso to carry
a cancelled weapon. It will almost en
tirely stop crime in tho District ot Colum
bia. A man with a revolver Is much sus
ceptible to tholnllucnco of anger. I think
that tho act of this defendant In passslug
out from behind his counter, simply be
causo ho was called n coward,
was entirely inexcusable. Whllo I
think that n flno Is tho proper
penalty In this caso, I think It should bo
commensurato with tho character ut tho
offense. Thereupon tho Couit Imposes a
flno of $200."
Sir. Cunningham at once paid his flno
and left tho court. The Juiv.lt Is under
stood, was evenly divided during Its long
deliberation between a verdict of guilty of
assault to kill and guilty of assault.
t The leniency shown by tho Court was
due to scleral causes. Tho District attor
neys ofllcc acquiesced In thorourso taken,
and flip prosecutlug witness, Ilackman.and
his people did what thoy could to have tho
penalty mado as light as possible.
I'ntiil Terniliintlon to One of hillllwui's
New YonK, Juno 10. A special from
llelfast eajs: Sullivan and Muhloon weru
visited jcslcrdoy by Sir. Martin L-tttx, a
)Ounglajcrof lluffalo, who Is also man
ager for llogers, Mllbiirno A Locke of that
city. After dinner It was suggested by
Messrs. Muhloon and Sullivan that tho
party, Iticlndhig Mlko Cleary of Now York
and Mr. Johnson ot Chichiuatl, take a
stroll to tho (lencsco Ulvcr for a
bath. After cnjoilng tho clear, frosh
water about bait an hour tho party camo out
nnu, wiiu tno exception ot .iir. Laux, who
remained on tho opposite shore, began
dressing. Ho was an expert swhuuier ami
an athlcto or somo note, and as ho started
to swim back hut little attention wns paid
to him, as no daugcr was anticipated. The
paitywas chatting and laughing when all
at oitco a cry for help from Laux was
heard. All Immediately commenced dis
robing and in a few seconds phtuged
Into tho water. Tho stioug

Ho strolled over
and wntched tho

Ward Invited htm to
tnko n drink. Adlcr
declined nnd stnitcd
for the door, when
frank J. Ilitirf. mil stopped play
lug nnd went townnl htm, saying: "Oh.
don't bo foolish: take a drink with us."
"All right," Adlcr replied; "glvo mo
some lemon nnd selter." Hut Ward
evidently didn't hear him, for ho ex
claimed, angrily: "So you won't drink
w lth tncl" nnd drew Ids revolver and
fired townrd Adlcr, tho ball striking tho
tile floor, Adlcr rait for n big minor
nt the end of the bar, nnd wns trying to
get behind 11 when Wnrd fired ngaln.
This time Adlcr fell forward upon his
lace, with n wound in the back of tho
neck. Wnrd replaced tho pistol In his
pocket, but made no attempt to leave
tho tilncc.
This Is the story of tho affair as given
by tho bystanders, but Mr. "Ward claims
that ho wns acting In self defense.
Adlcr was placed on n louiigo nnd tho
saloon wns cleared of the crowd that
had gnthcted, no one being allowed to
enter except Ihe relatives of the
wounded man, Tho fact that Adlcr
was unconscious gnvc rise to tho tcport
that n murder liiul been committed.
Mr. Wnrd was nrrcstcd by Ofllccr
Hughes nnd simply remarked :
"I have dono It now; the Jew crossed
mi", I couldn't help II."
Adlcr was attended by Drs. Mc
Blair nnd llrenheltncr, who found that
tho wound wns not likely to bo fatal.
The ball, which was n twenty-two
callbie bullet, had penetrated tho
lleshy jpnrt of tho neck, very near the
base ot tho brain, Ho was taken to his
homo ot COO II street nnithwcst, and
could not speak above n whisper. This
fact was supposed to be duo to tempo
raiv paralysis caused by the shock.
The trouble was caused by a dispute
over a diamond pin which Mr. Waul
had stolen from him on the 1st of Juno
during n row in Hurdle's snloon, on 1)
Mtcet, between Twelfth and Thirteenth
sliects. During the sculllo Sir. Wnrd
lost n diamond pin. lie plnccd the mnt
tcr In the lintuls of tho private de
tectives, and It was generally under
stood that Ill-feeling existed between
them. Mr. Wnrd stated that ho fired
because he thought ho was nctlng In
sclf-dcfcusc. lie had every tca?on to
fear the man, whoso manner Indicated
that he deslied to provoke n tow, ns he
begun criticising his game of pool In an
offensive manner ns soon ns he entered
tho Mtloon, nnd nftcr somo words
reached towntd his hip jiocktt.
Adlcr Is n well-known nltachcHof n
pool loom nt the end of Seventh sticct.
This morning Piosecutor Amies ex
pressed himself ns being content to io
celve $2,000 ball, but later Information
fiom tho doctoisgavo llso to a sttong
possibility of his being Indicted for
minder. Mr. Wnrd sat In Pollco Couit
nil mottling waiting to give bail, but no
action wns taken, owing to tho icmaik
of ono of tho physicians In attendance
that Adlcr was In n very critical 'condi
tion. A consultation ot tho physicians
wns fixed for 12:30 o'clock, unon which
Mr. Alines pioposcd to base his action
ns tn ball.
Thcio is a maikcd disinclination ou
bath sides to talk nbout tho case. Mr.
Wnrd has employed Chapln lliowti
nnd A. 1J. William? as his counsel.
lie declined to say anything about the
case this morning, nnd Adlct's telnllves
declined to make any statement, saying
Hint Adlcr had not said anything; ho
wns not allowed to talk, for fear It
would itgitnle him and mako him wot so.
That the diamond pin Is nt tho bottom
of tho nlfnlr Is meiely u suinilc, nnd It
Is futile posslhlo that the caso may
develop a dilfeicnt nspect Inter on.
It wns by accident meiely that Mr.
Waul had a pistol In Ids pocket. Only
a shoit time bcfoio he had loaned his
title ton friend who was going hiintlti",
and had taken tho othct's pistol tn keep
for him. He wns not lit the habit of
can vine n pistol.
Tlio Idea of the sclf-defenso thcoiy lu
the case Is that Waul hiving n large
amount of money on his poison, being
suspicious itt connection with the dia
mond pin, wns npprchenslvo of nn
onslaught hy Adlcr. Tho fact that
Adlcr came In, and ns soon ns ho saw
Wind went out again, caused the latlei
to susticct that ho was holding a con
Hiltutlon with bomo of his friends, with
n lew to ninklng an attack ou him.

lelained In custody,
Mr. Lew Neunicycr, the prnptivtor
of tho Mntblo Saloon, was piosentwhen
tho eminence took place. Ho was
standing between Ward and Adlcr when
tho shot was tltcd, and if ho had moved
would have iccelved the bullet.
"Mr Waul camo In and Invited mo

snld Mr. Nowmover Io a Curno

Wnul got considerably Ihe worst of the

that this fact may have somo bearing on
tho case.
In the Pollco Court Mr. Amies stated
that owing Io the statement received
fiom the doctors ball could not bo
