IN THE SENATE YESTERDAY.
About the most important piece of work
which the Senate did yesterday was the pass
age of the bill to authorize the New Castle
county Trustees of the Poor to borrow
$290,000. The sum is big enough to take
one's breath away almost. Part of this, a
small part though, is to lie used iu paying
off the present indebtedness of the Trustees
which has been steadily piling up in some
way not explained, eter since the farm near
New Castle was bought years ago for an
Almshouse. The balance fg to be used in
building the new Almshouse. Mr. Cum
mins, couusel for the Trustees, explains to
me that such a large turn is necessary now,
as the Board will get no return from the old
poorhouse property ia West Wilmington for
some time, and the
needed at once, And that the
of the debt for the new Almshouse
will be less what that property brings,
this explains the exceisive amount asked for,
to a certain extent. The other bills which

A lively discussion of the merits or de
merits of the Dukes trial had been expected,
and the galleries were crowded, but the
matter was put out of sight as speedily as
possible. Hasson moved that the resolution
be referred to the Judici

As to the exact manner of their recovery
Thomas Cochrane, Esq., the president of
the institution, was, when spoken to on the
subject yesterday, not very communicative.
He said that the "bonds are now in the
safe," but, for the interest of public justice,
it would not do to give the circumstances
of their return. He had no objection, how
ever, to say that an innocent party bad yes

THE CARLTON MURDEK.
BOSTON'S SECOND MYSTER
NO 0LÏÏE TO THE ASSASSIN.
The Deadly Assault
Mrs. Carlton at
Hor Home In a Boston Suburb— A Crime
Shadowed iu Mystery.
Boston, March 19, —The murder of Mrs.
Carlton at East Watertown last night is
deep in mystery. No clue has been found
and the case promises to rival that of Mrs.
Bell, in this city, whose murderer has
been discovered. It was at first supposed
that Mrs. Carlton's husband might know
something concerning the murder, but it is
now certain that he has no knowledge what
ever of the crime. He is at home to-uight,
overwhelmed with grief. Robbery was not
attempted, for everything in the house has
been found intact. It is supposed that the
stone with which Mrs. Carlton was killed
was brought from a distance.
East Watertown is a suburb of Bostou,
about eight miles from the City Hall. The
house where Edward E. Carlton lived, with
his family, is situated half a mile from the
Cambridge line. Mr. Carlton keeps a
restaurant in Cambridge street, Boston, and
has been in the habit of going home only
two or three times a week. He was not at
home yesterday. The wife,Etta G. Carlton,
at the time of the murder was in the house
with her two children, Fanny, about 5 years
oi age, and a boy about tw
years of age, the servant baviug gone out
upon a visit.
MURDERED IN HER OWN HOME.
The statemeut made by the little girl,
Fanny, was that she and her brother
up stairs and her mother was preparing
them to go to bed, both being undressed
While they were talking together the front
door bell was twice Fung, and the mother,
leaving the children in the dark, went down
stairs to answer it. There was no light in
the hall, the whole bouse being in darkuees.
Soou after the mother went down the little
girl heard the door open and voiceR which,
as she says, sounded like quarreling,
was about 7.30 o'clock in the evening. After
listening ior several minutues the child be
came frightened and ran down stairs in her
night dress, with bare feet, and Ltumbled
over t'je body of her mother,which way lying
in the hall. Wild with terror she ran out of
the front door, across the street to the dwell
ing of Mr. A. D. Chaney, which was nearly
opposite lier home, exclaiming, "Something
has happened to mamma!" Mr. Chaney
immediately ran out and entered the Carlton
house and found the body lying in the hall.
A soon, as possible he procured a light and
then the dreadful scene

—he saw the body of Mrs. Carlton lying
prostrate, covered with blood. Beside her
was a shawl saturated with gore and near it
was a large paVing stone, with masses of
hair clinging to it and covered with blood.
All over the oil-cloth were large pools of
blood, giving signs of a deadly struggle.
The unhappy woman was moaning and was
carried to her bed, where she di

KILLED WITH A PAVING-STONE.
An examination of the dead woman gave
full evidence that the instrument with
which the terrible crime
mitted was the large stone found
the body in the hall. There was
lar aud ragged wouud extending nearly
across the forehead, a fracture of the frontal
skull bone, the bones of the nose broken, a
scalp wound upon the top of the head, with
another directly back of the loft ear, and a
bruise upon the back of the right hand. The

hands of a strong man descended upon her

repeated several times, the great number of
wounds clearly showing this fact. It is also
probable that, the first blow rendered her

she became anxious about the absence of
her mother. After the dying woman had
been conveyed up stairs she said to one of
the men who had a&isted Mr. Chanev in re
moving her, "Did you see him ?" ' If she
made any statement which would lead to
the discovery of the assassin the doctors
were silent regarding it.
Carlton arrived at Lis home at ipidnight
and then learned for the first time of the
shocking calamity which had bofalleu his
family. He appeared utterly takeu aback
and broke down completely. After he had
somewhat calmed his emotions he said that
he had been in Boston all day and was at
the South End wheu the messenger was seul,
to his place of business to notify him of the
Aside from theories there seem to be but
few clews. Mr. Joseph Bird, who had left
a frieud on a Watertown car about 7.15
o'clock, says he saw a man with a slouch
hat sitting on the fence about the yard op
posite, but he can give no further descrip
tion. Maggie Donlan, a little girl living iu
the next house to Mr. Carlton's, states that
she saw a man go to the front door and ring
the bell and on the door being opened he
went in, but she can give no description of
the man. This is all. The whole thing is
enveloped in mystery.

five years old. At the time it was made a

Mr. Nichols was a member, was on the point

desirous of saving the church, and, it is
