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
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

October 11th, at 8 o'clock, in front of the
postoffice under the auspices of the West
Haven Blaine and Logan olub. An appro
priate speech will be delivered by Professor
William K. Townsend. The James Graham
Plumed Knights will be present in full . uni
form and a rood time is expected. The Be-
nnblicans of West Haven never do things by
halves and are wide awake for Blaine and
The James Graham Plumed Knights made
their first xarade id West Haven Oct.
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.
Hon. John R. Buck and Mr. John A.
Stoughton addressed the East Hartford Re
publicans last evening.
A Blaine and Logan flag was raised at Elm
wood, near Hartford, last evening with
speeches by Judge Arthur F. Eggleston and
Leonard Morse, of Hartford. The Elm wood
band furnished music and the ladies a colla
tion. Hon. Andrew J. Pickett, mayor of New
Britain, who was nominated for Senator from
the Fourth district on Weduesday. is a
prominent manufacturer of New Britain and
president of the Landers, Frary & Clark Co.,
a man of high character.

turer. General George B. McClellan is announced
to speak in New Haven during the campaign
to his Democratic brethren. When he de
cides on the day, train and hall the Demo
crats will issue a general order. Courant.
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.

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.

mentable physical condition. He is a com
plete wreck and apparently cannot live many
months. He has clung to the hope of par

the Canvas Pavilions The
Porepaugh Show.
Forepangh's great circus and menagerie
exhibited afternoon and evening yesterday
on the "circus lot" out on Howard avenue.
About four thousand people attended the af
ternoon exhibit and about the same sized au
dience in the evening. Outside the great
travel-stained and weather-beaten pavilion
tent were the usual array of large side-show
tents and department tents connected with
the main show, but on the street and the ad
jacent streets was the usual array of peannt
and fruit stands, five-cent shows and curiosi
ties, members of the family of fortune-telling
birds, some of which have coined money foT
their owners near Boston common the past
etc., and there was the usual crowd
of vehicles of all descriptions which
vied with the horse ' cars in carrying
people to the show. Extra policemen
on duty at the show did service for the pub
lic. The show included a number of fea
tures that elicited lively applause. These
were the tight rope ascent and descent, for
ward and backward, by Jjttle A" Bight, the
feats of strength by George Jagendooper, the
Australian Hercules, the performances on
tne invisible wire, the daring mid-air nights
of the Subons, the performances of the
$100,000 herd of elephants, with Adam
Forepaugh, y., in charge, the wonderful
triple somersaults by John Werland and
Billy Burke and his comical little
clown elephant. The last named was
one . of the greatest hits in the
entire show and the little elephant delighted
all with his cunning and laughable domes.
The menagerie Contained 26 elephants, large
and small, and a good variety of wild beasts;
royal Bengal tigers, lions and lionesses, bears.
a rhinoceros, besides many less wild quadru
peds or lesser size. The sacred white ele
phant, "Light of Asia, "received the lion's share
of attention. Many at the show wanted to
have the tiger pointed ont that so badly
mangled a thoughtless member of the circus
company in Waterbury on Wednesday. Some
of the ladies who viewed the ferocious beast
were wroth with it for not ex
hibiting some signs of remorse
and gave it a wide berth. The
animals of the show eat six tons or hay per
day and four tons of straw are used daily
The show goes into winter quarters in a few
days. Mr. Forepaugh, sr., is in Philadelphia.
He did not come into New England with the
show. The season is reported as having
been on tne whole a very successful one, de
spite tne dull times which are prevalent in
manufacturing in many places.

terday afternoon after the main show to wit
ness the dime show given in the main pa
vilion. Police Notes,

in great haste and stated that her husband
had taken poison. Help went down and he
was given antidotes and then walked around
the streets. It is not known for certain that
he took the poison. His wife found him
asleep and could not arouse him and found
an empty vial near by, with a label on it
marked poison. He has tried to commit
suicide a number of times, but has been un
successful thus far.

Charles H. Pine, speaker of the House in

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.

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.

The third time, before Judge Andrews of

plaintiff a verdict of $5,000 and costs. An
appeal was taken to the Supreme Court of
Errors, and on Wednesday, the first day of
the session since the case was argued, de
