Malon Walton Russell, scion of a prominent southern family, has. come to grief in New Yoik after a spasm of sight-seeing that car ried everything before it. Russell is a son of Col. Fleming Rus sell of Louisiana, a salt mine operator and a partner of ex-State Senator Miles. the millionaire mining operator of New Orleans. Young Russell was employed in the Cotton Exchange there and was con tented with life until one day he won 52,700 en a horse race. In two weeks he won $21,000. Then Russell packed his trunk and came to New York. He left New Or leans on Feb. 28, losing $1,000 at poker en route. Jumping into a cab he drove to the Waldorf and took rooms at $8 a day. He wanted to be shown to a "swell" club house. Cabman Hennessy drove him to Canfleld's resort and Rus sell played faro until 5 o'clock the next morning. He left the place $3,000 loser. In the evening Russell did the tender loin and three nights in the Haymarket st Russell $800 and a collection of Jewelry. The next night he ran afoul of some soubrettes. Then his money took wings. He tried another shy at the faro bank, which cost him $2,500. Dropping into the Delavan he opened wine for the pugilists, who congregate there. He was introduced to Sharkey and later to Corbett and Kid McCoy. After a week more of wine, faro bank, soubrettes and more wine, the young man from the South found himself with just $100 in his pocket, after paying a hotel bill of $300 and a cab bill of $90. This was the night of the Erne-Gans fight. Russell wagered his "century" on Cans and left the club house broke. It then struck Russell that he had not a soul, iu town to whom he could turn. His pride and breeding prevented him from appealing to any of his new friends for a loan. Even his last ring had been given away. . After walking around for nearly two hours, Russell bethought him of some change h' had received on the cars and reaching in his pocket found 40 cents. He went into the Hoffman House and called for a drink. His check was 15 cents. After that he soon reached Mills hotel No. 1 and in the morning invest ed his last nickel in "coffee and sink ers." He could not telegraph home, as the agent would not send his message col lect. Mr. Russell returns home today through the efforts of a friend. SHOT FROM BEHIND. Dr. B. F. Shaw of Kansas City Killed by His Brother-in-Law. Kansas City, April 2. Wlril playing with his motherless child, six years old, Hazel Marie Shaw, yesterday after noon. Dr. B. F. Shaw was shot In the head and instantly killed by his de mented brother-in-law, John McKimm, at the latter"s mother's house, 1617 For est avenue. The murderer is 25 years old, while the victim was 40 years old. Dr. Shaw was visiting with his child at 1617 Forest avenue, yesterday af ternoon about 2 o'clock. He had her in his lap and was reading some humor ous writings to her, when his brother-Jn-law entered the room from a door behind him. and placing a 38-caliber revolver behind his head, discharged the weapon, the bullet entering the left Hide of the skull near the ear, and plow ing a hole through the skull, ooming out just back of the right ear. The bullet dropped on the floor and was picked up later. Ex-Sheriff Sitlington, who lives two doors beyond, heard a cry of murder, and rushed to the scene of the shooting. As he entered the house he saw John McKimm standing in the house with the smoking revolver in his hand. He held him until the police Sour Stomach M After I was Induced to try CAICA RCT!

McKimm was seen at police head quarters by a reporter and refused to talk of the matter. He was in consul tation with Attorney Fyke, who ad vised him to say nothing. He refused to say whether he had shot his brother-in-law, whether he had been at the house yesterday . at all, or whether he knew Dr. Shaw or not. He did not ap pear demented. McKimm is about 25 years old. and has been employed by his brother. E. McKimm, a lawyer in the American Bank building, collecting accounts for him. He is unmarried. The theory that he is demented arises from the fact that in the summer of 1898, In Van dalia. Mo., he tried to commit suicide by shootirg himself in the head. The bullet put out his right eye, but did no further injury. FOR LANDSMEN'S USE. The Cruiser Buffalo Will Again Go Into Commission. New York, April 2.

Most of them come from the farms, and many have never seen a ship before. They are a healthy lot. however, and the government has found that they pick up seaman's lore pretty quickly.

Many strikes in the building trades will begin today, but thy situation is not yet regarded as serious, in view of the fact that a number of the bosses are yielding. In Brooklyn, 1,500 carpenters will de mand 45 cents per hour, but it is doubt ful if a strike will immediately follow the refusal of the terms by the bosses. In the Bronx district between 500 and 600 carpenters and painters may go out because of the refusal of the bosses to pay $3.50 for each day of nine hours and declare Saturday half holidays. At a meeting of carpenters held Sun day it was said that 75 of 100 employers had already agreed to the new scale of wages. If necessary the affiliated trades will be called out on sympathetic strikes and in that case the building operations of the Bronx may be seriously retarded. At a meeting of the painters, decora tors, paperhangers' and carpenters' union, in Newark, N. J.., last night, it was decided to strike for an increase of 25 cents per day of eighthours. About 1.500 men will go out today if this de mand is refused. The carpenters and joiners in the same city have made a demand for $3 a day and they will strfke today. Safe ty engineers' and rock drillers' union, the members of which do most of the excavating for foundations in Harlem and the Bronx, will strike today, 250 engineers, five hundred drillers and 500 laborers going out. The demand is for an increase of 50 cents per day. Fifteen hundred electrical workers will demand on May 1 $4 per day instead of $3.50. RAN ON REEF. Bad Accident to the Steamer Newport in Alaskan Waters. Seattle, Wash., April 2. The steamer Newport, Captain Chester, en route from this city to TTnalaska, ran or. a reef in Tongass Narrows March 26, sus taining injuries to her hull that will necessitate the return of the vessel to Seattle for repairs. When the City of Seattle, whose officers brought the news of her disaster, left Juneau, she was then in that port. Beyond a copy of a formal protest which the Newport's master forwarded to Austin Claiborne, agent for the Pa cific Whaling company, who owns and operates the Newport, only meagre de tails of the accident are obtainable. In the protest Captain Chester states that his vessel ran on a hidden and unchar tered reef in Tongass Narrows; that she got off without assistance and made her way to Juneau. Soon after striking, according to the story heard by the Seattle's officers, the Newport sprang a slight leak. She made her way to Douglas island, where she was beached and her hull exam ined. Her injuries, it appeared, were not of a serious character, for the vessel was taken to Juneau. Lathers' Strike. Cleveland, April 2. About 125 lathers struck today.

SHELDON'S MISTAKE. It Is Pointed Out by the Roy. Dr. Parkhurst. New York, April 2. In his sermon last night at the Madison Avenue Pres byterian church. Dr. Parkhurst referred to the experiment of the Rev. Mr. Shel don as editor of the Topeka Daily Cap ital. He said: "One reason why men suppose that the gospel can not be closely applied in common life is their failure to under stand exactly what its precepts intend the point Christ aimed at in the enun ciation of those statutes, at least some of those statutes. "Secular papers as a rule have been nervously, and in some instances fever ishly, interested in that unique enter prise, and their restlessness has at times betrayed them into modes of scripture exposition that were probably the best they were capable of, but that disclosed novel views of the gospel idea, and that went a great way toward dem onstrating the fact that even if Mr. Sheldon was not competent to conduct a daily secular paper in the way Jesus would, it was as a great pity that some body could not be found pretty soon that could. "The feature in the case that com mends itself to the church and the world is the underlying principles in volved, not the special application of it that happened at Topeka. The supreme question that you and I are concerned with is the matter of treating Christ's precepts as practical statutes to be adopted into our workaday life adopt ed there, put in control there, not in journalism merely, that is only thing and we are not many of us journalists, but in everything. "Sheldon had a good deal to say about doing things as Jesus would do them. There is a suggestion about that phrase although in his mouth it was not cant, but it was infelicitous, it. gave opportunity to the ungodly to revile. " 'Ploughing as Jesus would plough,' 'sanitary plumbing that would please Jesus,' touches in an unpleasant way the spot where we keep our sense of the Holy. Why not have said exercising in everything we do editing, ploughing or whatever else the same spirit which Jesus exercised in what he did. and then everything would turn on finding out as accurately and nicely as possible just what that spirit was." A HEAVY SHORTAGE. Elmira City Chamberlain Bundy $75,000 Behind in Accounts. Elmira, N. Y., April 2. City Cham berlain Seymour Lowman says that the shortage of his predecessor, Frank E. Bundy, will undoubtedly reach $75,000. according to the additional discrepancies he has discovered during the past week.

A SHOT AT BRYAN. Perry Belmont Thinks Democrats Could Win With Bight Man. New York, April 2. Perry Belmont, who supported Palmer and Buckner in 1S96, thinks that the Democrats have a great opportunity to elect a presi dent. He said last night: The Repub lican party is assailing and the Demo crats are defending the constitution and the supreme court. On that issue the Democratic party can win, provided it selects candidates in whom the coun try can have confidence. Those who have themselves attacked the integrity of the supreme court, standing on the Chicago platform, are disqualified from leading in such an issue. The most vi olent criticism of the administration that is being made is the assertion that even the unsuccessful candidate of 1896 is preferable now. If that is the case how assured is Democratic success upon fiew issues with a candidate represent ing them. "The Republican contention is that congress when legislating for any part of the United States outside of the forty-five states is free to prescribe such laws as it pleases, and that the recent treaty with Spain has given sovereignty over Porto Rico and the Philippines unrestrained by the provi sions of the constitution. The Demo cratic party is on firm ground. The treaty-making power as well as con gress must obey the constitution. That is the decision of the supreme court, and is the law of the land until re versed by the court. "The treaty with Spain must be made to conform thereto. The Republican leaders are repeating a party shibbo leth that the constitution was made for the people, not the people for the constitution. The constitution was or dained for liberty and justice both de nied to the Porto Rieans by the Mc Kinley party. They are entitled to im mediate recognition whether creating a precedent for the Philippines or not. "Even under Spanish rule the Porto Ricans had deputies in the Cortes at Madrid. Why should they not have ter ritorial representation at Washington? The prospects of the Democratic party are growing brighter daily on this great constitutional issue." We have saved many doctor bills sinco we began using Chamberlain's Cough. Remedy in our nome. We keep a bottle open all the time and whenever any of my family or myself begin to catch cold we begin to use the Cough Remedy, and as a result we never have to send away for a. doctor and incur a large doctor bill, for Chamberlain's Cough Remedy never fails to cure. - It is certainly a medicine of great merit and worth.

Joseph Jefferson Discusses Methods of the Younger Actor. Atlanta, Ga., April 2. Joseph Jeffer son, who has been playing to immense audiences here today, was in a capital humor and discussed many topics of in terest to the profession. In some man ner the conversation took a turn in the direction of Richard Mansfield and the great actor had something interesting to say about the younger one, who has during the last few years made such a name for himself. Mr. Jefferson said: "Mansfield, I think is clever at times, but at others quite artificial. His in tensity, however, is marked and it at tracts me. He over-acts and of course that disturbs me, because it wakens in me the thought that I would not play the part that way, but be quieter, more conservative at such times. His over acting probably springs from intensity and time may give more artistic con trol. Still, as I said before, Mansfield's intensity is attractive." FITZGER ALD QUESTIONS. Democratic Congressman to Call on Secretary Gage For Facts. Washington, April 2. Representative Fitzgerald has prepared a resolution calling on Secretary Gage for the names of the banks that have been handling government funds in Porto Rico, Cuba. Hawaii and the Philippines and the banks that will probably be selected by him as government depositories in those islands if the Sibley bill, which is said to be backed by tbs National City bank of New York and kindred institutions, should become a law. The Sibley bill was reported to the house Ir an amended form after ex posures showing that the measure was prepared at the instigation of Standaid Oil financiers, who were plotting to con trol all of the monetary affairs of the islands, amounting annually to $117,000, 000. "It is time that it should be known who is handling these government funds," said Mr. Fitzgerald, "and an ef fort is going to be made to bring the whole matter before congress. The enormous interest profits that can be made out of government funds handled by the banks selected by Mr. Gage should not go into the pockets of a trust that is already rich enough to control the Republican party. The matter is one that should be investigated by con gress." GOES AS A SAILOR. A Millionaire's Son to Be an Assist ant Storekeeper at $5 a Week. New York, April 2. Although his fortune is estimated at .$250,000 and that of his father at $1,000,000, Emil H. Rosenblatt will leave today on board the transport Sumner to serve for a year as assistant ship storekeeper, at a salary of $20 a month. His duties will be to give out supplies to the crew and the soldiers, and often to do manual labor. In spite of this he seems per fectly happy, and accepted the position for no other cause that his love for the sea and his desire to serve his country. Rosenblatt signed for duty more than a month ago, although it was not known until yesterday, when the in spection was made. Since March 20 he has lived on board the transport, but only a few of his best friends knew3 of it until it was announced that he was on? of the crew. Rosenblatt is the son of Henry Rosen blatt. His home is at No. 237 East Seventy-second street. For several years he has been identified with the promi nent merchandise brokers of the city, and his office at No. 30 Broad street was always busy. Mr. Rosenblatt said yesterday: "I have signed to do the work of an assistant storekeeper, and I certainly will attend to my duties to the bes. of my ability. Of course the salary is very small, but I did not come on board to make my living, nor did I come to lie in a hammock and watch the other men do the work. I love the sea and would a thousand times rather do the work that I have to here than to be cooped up in an office all day iong and worry over 'puts' and 'calls.' " Murder Near Hays City. Hays City, Kan., April 2. Balzer Goetz, a wealthy farmer, living eight miles east of here, was found dead near his home yesterday with three buljet holes through his body.

I have often when I stooped to oil my en gine suffered excruciatingly, and when on the engine the least jar sent twin ges of pain clean from my loins to the top of my head. The trouble finally forced me to give up my position, and when weakness of the kidneys, partic ularly observable at night, was added to former troubles, my condition was not one to be envied. Now if the first box of Doan's Kidney Pills, procured at Rowley & Snow's drug store, corner of Sixth street and Kansas avenue, had not brought me positive relief, I never would have followed up the treatment, neither could I be induced to recom mend the preparation nor endorse its claims.
