MORE BLOODSHED FEARED
YOUNG HAINES HAUNTING THE
FATHER OF THE BOY HK KILXED.
Ho Scorns to Tnlto Delight In Pnitsinc
Hannognn's Homo-Tho Latter Ter
ribly Affected by tho Sight or HIb
Son'B Slayer A Scone on Friday Night.
Peoplo who reside in tho neighborhood of
Connecticut avenuo autl L Btrcet arc fearful
tliat tho end of tho Hains-Hanncgan tragedy
has not yet been reached. Tor some days tho
residents of tho region montioncd have been
in constant fear of witnessing a collision be
tween the father of tho young man who waB
killed at Fort Monroe and young Thornton
Halus, who fired the fatal bullet.
Tho hitter lives in the northwestern section,
and ficquently passes tho house in which Mr.
Ilanneean resides, No. 1140 Connecticut ave
nue. According to the reports of the neigh
bors young llalns sooms to take pains to pass
that way frequently and does not at all avoid
being seen by tho man whom ho has caused
such bitter sorrow. It is said that some days
aco Ilains went by when Mr. Hannegan was
sitting in tho window. Catching sight of tho
dojected face of tho bereaved father as he
passed, Hains paused, turned around and
smiled mockingly at Mr. Hauneean. This
scene was witnessed by several persons, who
characteiized tho conduct of Halns in scath
ing terms.
The sight of tbo man who killed his son has,
it is hardly necessary to say, a terrible effect
on Mr. Hannegan. Ho is almost overcome
with grief and rage, and those who know
him have in consequence bean for some time
in constant dread that ho would resort to des
perate measures of levengeaeainst Hains.
On Friday nleht it looked for a moment aE
If further blood was about to bo shed. Mr.
Hannegan and other occupants of
the house No. 1140 Connecticut
Avenuo wero setting on the front steps
early in tho evening. Young Hains
came along up tho avenuo, passed the house
slowly and walked into tho drug store next
door, on tho corner of L street. The sight of
him greatly excited Mr. Hannegan ana the
ladles hastily quitted their seats and entered
tho house. In a few moments Hains came
out of the drug store and calmly stood on the
corner. This waB too much for Mr. Hanno
iran, and before any one could interfere he
rushed toward Hains In a paroxysm of anger,
calling him a cold-blooded murderer. Before
Hannegan reached where ho stood, Hains
moved away and Hannegan did not pursue
him. Halns afterward sent to the proprietor
of the drug store a rather incoherent note
asking if he could not come to tho
store without danger of being assassi
nated by Hannegan and saying that
ho had killed ono of them and could not
kill another.
It is said that tho killing of his son, tho
events succeeding it, and the frequent slcht of
Halns has so preyed on Mr. flannegan's mind
that at times ho is almost insane. He fre
quently bursts into tears and rambles about at
night, unable to obtain sleep. Altogether, the
old man Is in a very pitiable condition, and
Hains' conduct In allowing himself to bo seen
by him is spoken of in the bitterest terms by
those familiar with tho circumstances.

and Ho Isn't Inclined to Bragr,
Either lira. Cleveland Doing 'Well
Congratulations nnd Flowers.
New York, Oct. 8. Mrs. Grover Cleveland
became tho mother of a strong, healthy girl
baby this morning shortly after midnight. Dr.
J.D. Bryant was in attendance. Mother and
child are doing well.
Tho important news did not become known
down town until nearly noon. Then It spread
with tho utmost rapidity, both In the city and
to other parts of the country.
During tho afternoon many flowers wero
Bent to Mrs. Cleveland, and both father and
mother received hearty congratulations. Then
messenger boys began to move up tho avenue
with telegraphic messages from all parts of
tho country.
Ex-Prcstdent Cleveland was evidently a
pleased man when seen about the recent ad
dition to his household. He received tho
press representative in the drawing-room, and
anticipating the question that would be asked
him said: "Yes, it is true. My wife was safely
delivered of a little girl this morning at six
minutes past midnight and both mother and
child are doing splendidly. Mrs. Cleveland
haB rested quietly all day. The child Is strong
and healthy, and at itB birth welched eight

GEN. BOTJUANGEIt INTERRED.
Tho GcndnrmcH Called Upon to Keep
Order at tho Funornl.
Brussels, Oct. 3. Tho funeral of General
Boulanger took place to-day. An immense
crowd of people assembled hours before the
time fixed for the interment ceremonies, in
front and about tho late residence of the
dead soldier In the Rue Montoyer. A large
crowd waB expected and the local authorities
had taken precautions to provide an Imposing
police force for this emergency, but as the
hour for starting the procession drew near it
was seen that the number of policemen pres
ent was far from sufficient for tho purpose of
maintaining order. Reinforcements were
sent for, but though tho exora force soon
arrived, the police, as the coffin was
brought out of the hotel proved entirely
unequal to keeping tho crushing, ex
cited throngs in anything like decent order.
Consequently, the sergeants do ville had to
call upon the gendarmes, mounted and on
foot, to assist them in controlling the mobs.
The gendarmes did so, and were compelled to
make a number of arrests before order could
be restored. The coffin of the unfortunate
General was covered with hundreds of floral
wreaths, tied with tri-color ribbons, mostly
sont from Franco by his political admirers,
and In addition there wero a number of tri
color flags festooned about and draped around
the casket containing the remains of the once ,
popular Idol of a large section of tho French
people.

MELBOURNE'S RAIN TESTS.
Temporarily Suspended, But Further Ex
perimonts Will Bo Made.
Goodland, Kan., Oct. 3. Melbourne has
clveu up his rain experiment at the sugge6
tlou of the citizens' committee which had
the matter in charge. It is understood that
if rain falls before a new test Is made, Mel
bourne is not to have the credit. About 11
o'clock last night Goodland was wet with the
tall end of a rainstorm, which deluged tho
country irom rniuipsDure, 14.U miles, to Jen
nings, 800 miles east. Melbourne is not sat
isfied with his test, and will wait until the
winds have fallen, aud the clouds, which tho
committee agree are of hia making havo
cleared away, before making a new test.
From the beginning to tho end of his txpen
ments the wind has maintained a velocity
of from thirty-five to forty miles per hour.
Melbourne Is satisfied that a rain can be pre
cipitated whllu the wind maintains such n
high velocity. Since the expeiiraouts bi':an
it has rained all around Goodland. the heaviest
fall being north and east, in which dliections
the wind will naturally havo cinied it.
Whether there is anything in tin experi
ments of Melbourne or not, he has convinced
the majority of the people here that he holds
the possible solution for di ought-breaking,
and before ho leaves Goodland his mcthouB
will be given a thorough test. If tho condi
tions are favorable, the next test will probably
begin next Monday.

How Journalists In Berlin Saw tho Czar
ut Luncheon, Etc.
Copjrlclited by Associated 1'rcns.
Berlin, Oct. 8. Regarding the Czar's
presence in Berlin, the journalists who are
obliged to record the event havo no agreeable
anticipations of their duties. Tho precautions
which have been taken to prevent any but
officials approaching the Czar are so strict
that even the authorized representatives. of
the press will bo kept at a distance. The
journalists who were allowed access to the
railroad station last week when the Czar was
hurrying through Berlin on his way to
Moscow wero locked up in a waiting room
and only got a glimpse of his Majesty through
a window its ho alighted from tho train and
was greeted by Prince Leopold, who was do
ing the honors la the absence ol the Emperor.
They had to wait patiently for an hour while
tho Czar devoured sandwiches and drank cup
after cup of tea, after which they Baw him de
part. His capacity for eating appears to bo
accompanied by a capacity for drinking, each
cup of tea being plentifully laced with rum
instead of milk.

HALF A MILLION GONE.
STARTLING PROPORTIONS OF THE.
KINGSTON DEFALCATION.
Tho Ulnter County BanJc Kobbors
Worked on a System nnd Success
fully Docolvod Inspectors, Directors,
nnd Depositors.
KiNciSTON, N. Y., Oct. 3. Tho whole com
munity is excited over tho disclosures of the
systematic rascality successfully practiced
during many years, which has resulted in the
closing of the doors of tho Ulster County Sav
ings Institution. The enormous sum of
$4G0,000 Is known to have been stolen
by the Treasurer Ostrandcr and Mathew T
Tiumpbour, assistant treasurer, and it i&
feared that tho stealings will reach over that
amount. Both men aro in jail. The trustees
of the bank have made a statement to tho
public, showing how completely th6y wore
cheated by the deliberate, well-planne, syste
matic frauds of tho officers. Albert C. Jud
son of tho banking department made tho fol
lowing statement:
"Tho examination into the condition and af
fairs of the bank has been going on since
Monday of this week and is bolng made by
myself, assisted by Maik S. Eustace. Th&
oxamlnatlon is yet incomplete. It has al
ready developed the fact that about $-100,000
of tho funds of tho bank have been abstracted.
Tho stealing has been going on for over
twenty years, and during all that time
Assistant Treasnrer W. T. Trumpbour has,
had charge of tho ca6h, It bolng his duty to
recelvo tho deposits and pay the checks of
depositors. It has been his duty to tako tho
trial balance of the depositors' ledgers twice a
year, and he haB also, when he felt? so dis
posed, dono some of tho postings to tho depos
itors' accounts. Ho has thus taken upon
himself to do that portion of the work
of tho bank, which afforded an opptntunlty
to falsify ItB accounts without detection, and
he has dono it in this way: It Is tho mle of
the bank in receiving deposits to make a
ticket mcmoiandum containing the name of
tho depositor, the number of tbo bcok, and the
amount of tho deposit. From this memoran
dum tbo entry Is made on the dolly cash book by
tho bookkeeper. If a sum of money is ab
stracted, Mr. Trumpbour retains in his pos
session depositors' tickets representing the
amount taken and then posts tho amount to
tho depositor's credit In the ledger,
without a liko entry in the cash book.
This wrong-doing could not l;e dis
covered except by a very thorough
and exhaustive examination, covering many
days, which the trustees, not being experts,
are not competent to make. The methods
adopted by tho assistant treasurer to defraud
tho bank were thoroughly ingenious aud have
never before been encountered by tho bank
examiners of this State to my knowledge."
Trutnnbour's family connections are of the
best. He was htghly popular socially and as
a banking man. There never has been the
slightest suspicion until tho present disclosure
against his integrity. Tiumpbour's wife
died about two yeais ago. Recently
he married, and had just returned
from his wedding tour when the disclosure re-
gardlng Ostrander was made known, nd tho
arrest of Trumpbour foil owed soon aftor. The
blow to his young vlfe upon her hearing the
charge against her husband was a terrible ono.
Tho prisoners were arraigned before Re
corder nussoy this afternoon. They asked
for an examination, which was set down for
Monday.

THE FRESIDENT "WAS HIS G17KST.
But Mr. Dill Now Occupies a Common
Prison Coll.
Clearfield, Pa., Oct. 4. To-night Wil
liam H. Dill will sleep his first night in a
prison cell. Last night Mr. Dill spent, his first
night in jail, but bo was kindly given tho
parlor whoro in company with his wife and a
few intimate friends ho put in tho night. His
wife stands by him bravely aud when
he was assigned to his cell to night
she shared it with him. Theu haye
been no new features discovered couceruing
tho falso entries on tho bookB of tho bank
here. Mr. Dill fools hlB position keenly.
There is quite a contrast in tho position of
the man to-night from that he occupied when
tho Piesldont of tho United States, Benjamin
Harrison, was his guest hero last fall.
