Boston, Deo. 23. There is a strango story
surrounding tho life of lira. Bodio R. Side
linger, who attempted Buicido on Washington
street Wednesday evening.
The husband, who is a carriage-maker em
ployed in Beverly street, was seen yesterday
afternoon, and told tho following story :
" The newspapers have unconsciously done
me an injury in this affair. Vet ono cannot
blame them under tho circumstances. To
place my name right beforo tho publio I will
relate the story of our marriago, whioh has
been brought to such an unfortunate end :
"On June a of tho present year I went to
ray work as usual in the morning and on my
way through the West End bought a Olobe.
On the first page was the story of a woman's
downfall which impressed mo more forcibly
than anyfting I had ever read. It told of a
fair young girl who had beon betrayed by a
ranohman under promise of marriago. Her
name was Ollvo Sutton. Sho had appeared
at Jefferson Market Police Court, in New
York City, as a complainant against a
woman's houso on Bivington street, but find
ing that it was not a proper placo, had left.
The night previous sho had returned to get
her trunk, and as soon as sho entered the
houso sho had beon assaulted."
SADIE'S NEW XOnK ADVENTTJHE.
At this point Sir. Sidellngor took from his
pooket a (J lobe of June 2. and read tho fol
lowing: " Miss Sutton told tho story of hor
life to Agent Young, of Mr. Gerry's society.
She is well educated and very pretty, in spito
of the bruises that disfigure hor. She says
she Is twenty.siz years old, and was born in
Canada. Hor parents wcro wealthy and
spared no pains on her education. She was
sent to the Convent of tho 'Sacred Heart
m Montreal, and remained tboro until
she was eighteen. Thrco years ago sho

sented himself as a wealthy ranch-owner

Out and ho deserted her, leaving hor penni
less. Then she obtained a situation as school
teacher and supported herself for two years.
She acknowledged with tears that she had
been led astray and came to Now York two
weeks ago to lead a different life She had
reoommendations from several schools in
Boston, speaking highly of hor ability and
character. At her own request sho was sent
to the House of Detention, as she had no
' ' The day passed," continued Mr. Side
linger, ' ' anil I could not keep the Btory out of
my mind. It seemed unfortunate that a girl
should bo so porseoutod.ond although I know
that suoh persons were not always what they
claimed to bo, I felt that this story was true.
" I went to bed that night thinking about
tho case, and tho next morning it was upper
most in my mind.
" Was there no way in whioh I conld aid
hor? I asked myself tho question. It was
true I was earning good wages and would
not miss a fow dollars, but aid of that sort
would be temporary, while I wished to do
i something that would materially benefit the
girl in time to come.
i "After long consideration I wroto a lettor to
the Clerk of EBsex Market Court requesting
I information about Mius Sutton. I asked him
to see that sho received tho note I inclosed,
tegether with a small sum of money. I told
her in my letter that I had read of her
troubles and that I regretted that she had
found life so hard in Boston. If bIio wished
to roturn to this city I should bo pleased to
aid her in procuring a situation, either teach
ing or in business. I begged her to accept
tho money, saying that, although sho had
been unfortjinate, Boston nevertheless con-
tained many kind-hearted people who would
Sever have soon hor suffer hadlier difficulties
AXJUED LIKED HEB STYLE.
" I received a brief reply in a fow days,
thanking mo for tho money, which she ac.
cepted as a loan, and expressing a desire to
return to Boston if sho could procure means
" I liked her stylo, and without other
thoughts than those of oharity I sent her
a ticket via the Fall River line. Sho did not
come that way, however, and I afterwards
loomed that sho pawned tho ticket for 1.60
and came by rail.
" On reaching this city I met her, and as
he did not have a place to go to I took her to
my boarding-house in tho west End, where
I turned her over into tho hands of the land
lady. Thoro was no suitable room for her to
occupy, on which account I gave up my own
quarters and took a hall room on the floor
" A month passed, and I grow to like hor,
although I was pay ine attention to a young
lady in another portion of tho city. I tola
her that I expected to get married beforo
long. Sho said nothing, but afterwards ap
peared very unhoppy.
BECAUSE SUE LOVED HIM BO.
" One day I asked why this change had
Oomo ovor her. Crying bitterly, she sold
hat sho had made up her mind to leave Bos
ton forever, I urged her to toll mo why.
and sho repliod became she loved me and
could not bear to look upon my face, know
ing that another would be my wife. It was
this aotion on her port that decided mo.
" I gave up going to see the other girl, and
after a few days married Sadie. This vi as in
July last, but I cannot remember tho date.
"We had mot under strange circumstances,
and I looked forward to a pleasant life, but
Was doomed to disappointment from tho first.
" Wo went down to my father's in Apple
ton, Me. , on our wedding trip. Whilo there
&ho made it so unpleasant for the old folks
that they were glad when wo came away.
8ADIE MOT A H0U8EKEBPEB.
"I returned to Boston in October, oneweek
before my wife, and secured rooms at 83
Poplar street, whioh I furnished for house
keeping. It cost me considerable money, but
I thought that when Sadie was settled in a
home of her own she would feel differently
towards roe. We began housekeeping under
favorable conditions, but thoy did not long
exist. She took no care of the rooms, and
they got to be in a terrible condition. Tho
dishes wero not washed and the beds left un
made, whilo my soiled linen lay in tho
clothes-basket for weeks. I would como
home at noon and find no preparation for
dinner and it was just tho some at supper
" Sadio left beef that I brought home stay
uncooked until it spoiled, and then took it
around among tho neighbors to show what
Jtinci or a provider I was and under what
terriulo conditions we lived. Even in a time
so snort ray home became the most misorable
Sfl . oworld. When other men by my
&l!?l8h.ed thol,r day's labor and looked
lonrara to a pleasant eveninc with their
family I wished that work would last all
night so that I could forget my homo.
" Then another obstacle camo in our way.
Sadio got mod with thu landlady. The lstte r
was not in tho habit of having anv portion of
hor house kept in the way mv tenement was,
and sho suggested the fact to Mrs. Sidclingor.
A quarrel was tho result.
SUE HAD SEEN ON THE BTAOE.
" Up to this timo I had known vory llttlo of
my wife's past life. Sho had dropped hints
occasionally and from those I gleaned some
foots. Sho had travelled v.ith a showman,
who was a crack rifle Bhot. Ho inado up as a
cowboy and had appeared at Austin k
Stono's museum, on Tromont row. Sho had
been with him for a long timo, appearing as
his partner on tho stago. They had lived
together as man and wife. Sho had also boon
on tho road with cheap circus companies and
shows and had an ambition to try tho stage
again. I opposed this idea at the start, ray
ing that it was against my wishes and assur
ing her that unless some unorsoon accident
occurred I should earn enough for both.
SUE IS A, POKEB rLATZB.
" Not long after this I found a letter at the
house from Mr. Keith, proprietor of the
Bijou Theatre, offering her a week's engage
ment at his house in Providence aud a second
at the Bijou. I usod ovory means in my
power to provont hor accepting; but what
con a man do when a woman beats him over
the head with a coal-hod and a stove-poker
every time he opposes her wishes ?
" Tho upshot of the matter was she de
cided to go, and I had to spend $70 in fit
ting hor out with dresses. Her week at
Providence was to begin the 19th. Sho left
the Saturday previous. I gavo her $11 in
cash. Monday I got o telegram from Provi
dence saying sho was sick and for mo to
como don n and seo hor. I wor botween two
firos. My landlady said I could never bring
her bock there and my wifo did not want to
livo with mo if sho could get off on the road.
I had done the best I could and felt that it
was timo for me to pull out of tho harness.
So I sold off my furniture and would have
gone to Appleton if my boss had not urged
me to stay with him.
HAl'MNESS NEEDED IN MATRIMONY.
"I cannot say anything regarding tho at
tempted suicide. 1 have always used my
wifo well, and took tho courso I pursued as a
last resort. I entertain no hard feelings
towards tho woman, and havo cited tho above
sketch of our lives moroly to placo myself

but physicians say thoy found no indications
that sho had swallowed laudanum.

Shipping men, merchants and pcoplo who

Vonu carefully this morning to loam if tho
groat raft of timber, which was abandoned
by tho steamship Miranda some two hundred
miles southeast of New York last Saturday,
was still adrift.
News is anxiously awaited from tho big tug
boat C W. Morso, which sot out from the
foot of Sixth street, Williamsburg, yestordav
in search of it.
Tho raft is built of immense logs of spruce,
tho centro or anchor log being a troo sevonty
fivo feet long, with a thickness of throo and
one-half f eot at tho baBo and ten inches at tho.
top, and thoro is not a pteco of timber In tho
raft loss thou twenty-five feet long.
Fifty-four tons of chains woro usod in lash
ing tho timbers together, and tho launching
of tho raft in tho Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia,
Nov. 15, was heralded as tho first movo in a
revolution of tho method of ltimhor-Bhipping
from tho Canadian timber regions to this aud
The raft is composed of 80,000 pioceB of
limber, or onough to mako corgoos for 100
vessels of 100 tons each. It islongorthan
tho largest ocean steamer, draws nioro water,
and is of about equal width.
It took six months to build it. Tho process
of making tho raft is patented bv H. It. Itob
ertsuu. The raft is worth 8150,000 and is
ownod by James D. Leory, tho ship-buildor
and lumberman. It was to have boon brought
up tho Souud and anchored in Flushing Bay.
It was floated safely down tho coast of
Maino for about two hundred miles and thero
mot by the steamship Miranda, which was to
tow the monster tho rest of tho way. But in
tho galo of Saturday the big hawsers broko
and the raft was abandoned.
To cost a six-foot log into New York Bay is
a misdemeanor, but it is no legal offonso to
abandon a big raft nt soa.
Tho mass of lumber would not ordinarily
drift further than a milo an hour. Should a
steamer Btriko it the result would bo terrible.
All tho shipping and steotnuilp companies
.having offices in Now York havo cabled to
their European offices giving warning of tho
vagabond raft, but thore are many vessels
nearing this shore with precious freight
to whoso commanders the drifting timber
pilo is unknown, and much worry is conse
quent upon this fact.
How much concern is folt by shippers may
bo judged by tho faot that the revenue cut
ter Grant and the war steamer Enterprise
have joined with tho powerful Morse in
searching tho ocean wilderness for the dcre.
lict mabs of timber.
Thoro are scores of visitors at the Ship
Nows Office and the offices of Bupt. Hough

and 17 feet deep tho largest and strongest

across tho dangerous derelict she will at
tompt to tow it into port with a thirteen-lnch

to handle the bundle of timber in anything

not the sort of weather to bo lookod for for
Tho present or approximate whereabouts of
tho raft is unknown, though the opinion pro
vails that it canuot have drifted very far
from the place whoro she was last seen.
Tho winds havo been from a generally
westerly direction since Saturday last, with
but little variation. Tho raft may havo boen
blown out into the Qulf Stream, and if that
is so the timber is now on its way tq Iceland.
More probably, however, and here lies tho
cause of the anxiety among shippers, tho
mass is still drifting in tho pathway followed
by tho transatlantic steamers, and near
enough to theso shores to bo dangerous also
to coastwise craft,

Belgian Steamship Lines to Dismiss Tbelr
Encllah Captains and Emptor Germans.
Theie was considerable excitement Iq maritime
circles yesterday over a rumor that there la to be
a wholesale dismissal of English captains and
nnder officers now commanding Belgian steam
ships, who are to be supplanted by German offi
cers. There are aeveral steamship lines In the Bel
gian merchant marine, tne principal one being tne
Ked Star Steamship Compsny and ue Belgium and
Congo line, wnloh is known aa "Stanley's line."
The lted Mar Ceet Is made up of nine steaniahlpa,
all of which are registered Al at Lloyd's, aud two
new steamers will be added to the line before sum
mer travel commences. The principal steamers of
the line-are the Waealaod.4, 784 tons; Westernland,
4,000tons; l'eunland, 8,500 tons; Zeeland, 3,TO0
tons; Vaderland, 2,700 tons; Rhynland, 8,000 tons,
and three steamers ot less tonnsge. The boats of this
line run from Antwerp to New York. Peter Wrtgnt

who has Just arrived here from London, Informed a
Wohld reporter that some Indignation prevails there
among seafaring officers and others Interested in
shipping over the impending cnange ot offlotrs, aa
maur o7 the men have had command of the steam
ers for rears. In English shipping olrcles, he said,
the opinion Is general tuat, the prospeottve changes
have a decidedly polltloal aspect, and u the steam
ers are to be manned by Uerman officers. It la to be
assumed that in the event ot aa outbreak or hostili
ties between ltuula, Austria and Germany, Bel
glum will stand by Germany and In turn will be
supported by the lanet.
'l he only reason then that can be arrived at In
England, he said, U that the proposed wholesale
changes are for tne purpose of having the steamers
cbunged Into transports and switt cruisers.
Although Belgium has no navy she has quite a
large merchant marine, constating of thirty flrat
claislrun steamships, seventj-ilve sailing ship
and about three hundred fishing vessel). Tne
stesmship are nearly all fast screw vessels and
will make good transport, and they can easily be
converted into unarmorcd cruisers. This fleet would
be ot no small importance to Germany in the
event of a war.

time made some pioullar Inquiries. The purpose
of this Investigation was to discover whether there
was any real estate or other property standing in
the name of tbe heirs ot itlcbard V. Connolly or
Iticbard Connolly, Jr., here. No such property
conld be found. The nature of tho Inquiry was
then cnanged, and a lotal attorney was asked to
ascertain if any Investments of any kind bad ever
been made In Pittsburg. 'Ihla alao resulted in a
failure and the New Yorker went away. Whether
he had anything to do with the New York aulta
against Connolly Is not known, but the surmise
that he had such conntclton Is natural. Richard
Connolly, Jr., was married In this city twenty
years ago to a well-known lady of 1'ittaburg, who
died soon alter the collapse ot the Tweed ring.
The young couple bad a son and daughter, who are
attil living, and for years have resided In thU city. "
