The Mystery Surrounding Dr. Kinlt's Unknown Assailant No Evidence Against Beaudet, tne Coachman Ike Doctors Remove the Last Frag ments or Bone From the Wound. Brantord, Conn., Oct. 9. The brutal assault upon Dr. Walter H. Zink of Bran- ford,, which occurred last Tuesday night, still forms the leading topic of conversation at Branford, although the first excitement over the event has quieted down somewhat. Lit tle additional evidence tending to convict the guilty party has been developed here to-day. It almost seems as if the crime's author would remain unknown, as has been the case in so many other Connecticut affairs of this kind. It now looks as if the guilt of Robert Doherty, or, as he is sometimes called, Dough erty, will be more dtfBcnlt to establish than it seemed yesterday. Doherty appears much grieved over the affair and says he hopes the doctor will soon get well. There is little or no sympathy in town with the attempt to make out David Beaudet, the hostler, who let Dr. Zink into the house after the assault upon him, as being implica ted in the bloodv deed. He is a young French Canadian, who has always been well treated in Dr. Zink's family, is ot an amiaDie disposition, and it does not seem lively trial he would have anv motive for such a dastard ly crime. The theory of those who suspect him of the assault is that this axe was the weapon employed, and that Beaudet used it in order to e trace rrom it tne mams which iu might bear of the crime. This suppo sition seems to oe untrue, as j. o. Moore, who was the first of the neighbors on the scene, says he found the axe by the door before the coachman cut any wood and ex amined it critically for blood. There was nothing of the kind on it. Two or three small vellow hairs were found on the blade, but they undoubtedly came from the doctor's Irish setter. They certainly were not human hairs. Dr. Zink has been feeling a little better to- rtav. Dr. Hawkes. of New Haven, ana vr. Gaylord, of Branford, removed the last piece of bone in the compressed, wound in the back nf the head, m-essintr aeainst tne wound. The wound is now clear of all fragments of bone, a favorable turn. The justice's pulse and temneratnre were normal to-day. A reward of 2200 was offered to-day by the Selectmen for information that will lead to the arrest of the euiltv uerson. Midnight. Dr. Zink has been comfortable this evening. It is now thought that he will recover. Doherty has been per mitted to cro home to his family, as there is not evidence enoueh to hold him in custody any longer. Coroner Bollman's only official action in the case has been tne taking of Dr. Zink's statement. He really has nothing to do with the case unless Dr. Zink dies. He went over on the night of the assault sup- Dosing Dr. Zink was about to die. It is matter that belongs to the town officials to investigate. It does seem as though they ought to be pushing themselves a little faster than tney are to rerret out tne cramum. Maud S. to Trot Next Tuesday. The attempt will be made at Charter Oak Park next Tuesday afternoon, provided the weather is fair and the track good, to drive Maud S. a faster mile than 2:09 3-4, her present record. The exhibition will be open to the public: On Tuesday the mare was sent the last half of a slow mile to see if she had her speed, and she was timed by Mr. David Bonner and a party of New York gen tlemen in 1:03 3-4, the final "quarter being made in 30 1-4 seconds a 3:01 . gait. Mr. Bair is confident that the Queen will lower her record, provided the conditions are favor able. CAMPAIGN NOTES.

Headed by the West Haven band and the Columbia drum corps, the company pass ed through the principal streets of the bor- ouorh and were received all along the route with much pleasure by the citizens. After a serenade Mr. Graham presented the com pany with a very fine banner. The company is one of over fifty men and nearly all are voters for Blaine and Logan. The Hon. F. X. Schoonmaker, of New York, addressed a large audience at Cherry Hall, South Manchester, on Tuesday even ing. His speech was a clear, sound argu ment for protection and was listened to with the closest attention by a large body of work ingmen. The Manchester Republican bat talion held a short parade and escorted the speaker to the hall. Senator Aldrich, of Rhode Iula id, will ad dress the citizens of Collinsville and vicinity this evening.

New Britain had a big rally on Wednesday evening. Although it was raining the Haw ley Guard and Blaine and Logan escort turned out and escorted the speaker, Hon. Mr. Schoonmaker, to the hall. He made a powerful speech. In the latter part of his speech Mr. Schoonmaker 'addressed himself to the adopted citizens. He said he had a right to do so, his own ancestry being Donegal Irish and Amsterdam Dutch. His showing of what the Republican party had done for the naturalized citizen and the en forcement of a respect for American citizen ship on the part of the old world govern ments was particularly clear and effective. A rousing German rally was held in Rock ville on Wednesday evening at White's Opera House. Hon. Frederick W. Holb, of New York, was the speaker. Mr. Holb is a German of fine address and a powerful speaker. He was introduced by Mr. George Nargle, and a large number of prominent Germans were upon the platform. Three companies of Boys in Blue, with major and staff mounted, parades the streets until near ly 9 o'clock, when the speaking commenced at the hall. Many of the streets were finely illuminated and some of the houses present ed a beautiful display. The entire address was given in the German language and the speaker was frequently interrupted by bursts of applause. Protest Against Voting Places. So much dissatisfaction has been expressed at the use of the polioemen's room in the police building, as the First ward voting place, that the police commissioners have decided to hold a special meeting to-night for the purpose of hearing the protesters ex press their views. Those who feel aggrieved at the location chosen for the other voting places in the recent elections will also have an opportunity to be heard at to-night's meeting. New Haven's mortality.

Something In Which Railroad Men are Interested Successful Trial in This City. The automatic brake invented by Charles V. Rate, of Lancaster, Pa., was exhibited on the Canal railroad yesterday. The exhibition was witnessed by President Watrous and Vice President Reed of the Consolidated road, Superintendents Davidson of the Hartford road, Shepard of the Shore Line. Beach of the Naugatuck, Jones of the Connecticut Western, and President Yeamans of the Canal road, and others, who were taken upon a train of freight cars for a short distance out of the city. The exhibition car to which the brake is attached has the flooring over the brake mechanism removed and replaced with clear plate glass, exposing the brake to full view from within the car. This car has traveled ten thousand miles the past year giving ex hibitions. The brake can be applied to any freight car. Its construction is simple. No oiling is necessary. It does not interfere with an ordinary hand brake. The brake is set when the train reaches the speed of two miles an hour. When the engineer begins to slack up, the brake begins to work and soon has the car at a stand still. When the train has stopped it lets go its powerful grip. Its automatic power is wonderful. The railroad men were mucn nl eased with it. - ' Mr. Kate spent twelve years aeveiopmg tne . , , , , 1 , brake. It was patented a year ago last Marsh and has been successfully introduced on manv roads in this country. The trial was eminently successful. The New York and New England Fa' vorable Prospects.

GOSPEL UNION WORK. John C. Collins Reports of the Prog ress in New Haven Iiarare Numbers of Children Interested How They Are Taught to be Saving Officers Elected The Aim of the Society. The annual meeting of the Gospel Union was held last evening in English Hall, and eight gentlemen were present. Hiram Camp. the venerable president of the society, was in the chair. John C. Collins submitted his annual report. It showed that in the eight years of the existence of the society 1,500 children have been connected with it. In the Sunday school last yea there were 200 children. One of the institutions is a sav ings bank, tfhere the children deposit small sums of money and are taught to save their pennies. The bank has handled $737.98 since its organization and $500 has been tak en out. The various departments of the work are the free Sunday evening servi the Sunday school for children not connected with any other Sunday school, the free read ing rooms for young men, the Gospel Union workers' meeting every Wednesday evening. the neighborhood prayer meetings, of which eight were sustained during the past year, visitation among families in any way con nected with the services, and in the City court and jail. The attendance at the Sunday night meet ings during the past year has been smaller than formerly, owing to the counter attrac tions furnished by the Good Samaritans and the Salvation Army. It was admitted that those organizations were doing good, but their sensational methods were criticised. Mr. Collifls said he would endeavor by ask ing people to come and by. rurnishing new attractions to secure a larger attendance for Sunday evenings. A portion of Mr. Collins report was as follows: ' ' The efforts of the Gospel Union are not di rected for the benefit of any particular class; The work differs from that which ordinarily reterred to as city missionary worit in tnat tne measures are not adapted wholly to the pauper and outcast classes. No temporal or charitable assistance whatever is given by the society. Its religious work is solely among the unconverted without re gard to class or moral condition. The meth ods used, however, are such that the very poorest and most abandoned hnd in them an open door to the blessed privileges of the gospel equally with those of more correct lives and better temporal circumstances. would be, in my judgment, a serious mistake to limit, m a city like that of New Haven the work of the Gospel Union to the very lowest and most abject, socially and morally. of tne people. A most important part the work of the society is endeavoring to win to Christ the middle class of self-respecting more or less moral people who are not Chris tians, and not being under religions influen ces are surely drifting downwards as the years pass on. There are many of this class (-where there is one of the former. I think a wise arrangement, however, that we are able to adapt our work to both classes. " The report of the treasurer, A. E. Row land, showed that the total receipts for the year had been $3,573.86, of which $300 was borrowed .at the beginning of the year to meet a dehciency or aud.au. The running expenses were $3,329.02. The balance in the treasury at present is $41.64. Of the re ceipts $3,049 came from individuals and the balance from churches and collections. It is hoped by cutting down expenses to make good the dehcit this year. The mortuary record embraced the names of R. S. J ellowes, Mrs. Leonard Bradley and Ueorge tr. itocKweu.

Dr. Zink of Branford, upon whom such a cowardly assault was made on Tuesday night, had many warm friends here and ail hope the perpetrator of the crime will be found out and dealt with by the severest pen alties of the law.

There was much disappointment to the residents ou South Quinnipiac street on Wednesday on account of the procession fail ing to go through that street. There was hardly a house but was beautifully illumi nated. Eed fire and fireworks to the amount of a hundred dollars or more had been bought to give the boys a hearty and bril liant reception, but the money was spent in vain and the people could not show their patriotism to the Republican party. The beautiful scenes that so many had come to witness did not take place. The reason the ronte was changed was the lateness of the hour, which prevented the procession going over the route laid out. The committee felt as much disappointed and as. badly about the change as anyone can. Card, or Thanks.

Mor gan, of Bristol, and a .member of Hannum's business college of Hartford, met with an accident which came near proving fatal when near that city Wednesday morning. He was standing on the car steps looking at Fore paugh's cars, and as he leaned ont his head struck a switch standard, knocking him off the steps, and as he struck on the rails, nar rowly escaping being being ran over. He re ceived a severe scalp wound on the back of the head, was cut in -the neck and badly bruised on both knees. 'The services of a physician were secured and two stitches tak en in the scalp. He is home in Bristol and no serious results are anticipated from the accident. For Lighting the Gu, One of the inmates of the lockup last night was little James Torsney, a blue-eyed boy of eleven years old, son of John Torsney who lives at 88 Asylum street. James looked strangely out of place among the rough crowd of drunkards that filled the station honse. But he bore his trials bravely and said he was sorry he lit the gas on the corner lamp at Church and Crown streets, for that was the offence for which little James was given a night among the criminals.

Husted, of Greenwich, has at last been decided in favor of the plaintiff. The case has been tried three times. The first two the jury disagreed. The third time, before Judge Andrews of the Superior court, the jury awarded the plaintiff a verdict of $5,000 and costs.
