VTho Investigating Comraittoo went too

"THE WOULD" ON !for OF THE II BAP.
What n Novel Advertising Experiment of
Cnw' Ink Conipanv lleiuonatrnted.
Caw's Ink and Pen Company has Introduced a
novel aolicnie, not only for bringing to the notice
of the public Hi desirable articles, but for testing
to the full the question aa to which ono of several
morninj papers is to be preferred aa an advertising
medium. On New Year's Day thoro appeared a
column advertisement, prettily Illustrated, simul
taneously to Tint World, Timet, Sun, Herald,
Ti itnme an I several minor Journals. It appeared
on the eleventh pave of The Would, and occupied
an even more conspicuous position In other papers.
In It this offer was made:
Tti Caw's Ink mil Pen Company will kIt a " Dssht
war " double-feed fountain gold pen, the regalir price
of which Is $1, and a quirt bottle of Caw's Ulack Fluid
Ink, price TSoents, for the sum of SI, the only condi
tion b?nir that the applicant oall si the .tore between S
o'clock A. M. and 1 o'clock r. M. Tuesdty, Jan, 9, 1S1.
Scarcely h id the dnnn of ttto company's placo of
business, No. IK) Broadway, been thrown open
yesterday morning than the establishment waa
raided by an eager crowd. It comprised persona of
all sexes, ages and conditions, lly 9 o'clock the
crush waa so gruat that two policemen had all they
could do to keep the, assemblage In order. The
Bldcwalk was blocked at that point, while the
struggling, pulling and hauling to get inside the
door were such that at times the throng overflowed
into the street, blocking thecals. One by one each
person was handed an order for the articles named
at the prices Indicated, the recipients recording In
their own handwriting tho namo of the newspaper
In which they had read tho advertisement. Man
ager F. C. Brown, Bookkeeper C 11. Nourso and
Salesmen C. J. Fels and Louis Brown were tor the
entire live hoars kept us busy as bees to supply the
enormous demands made upon them. At the ex
piration of the allotted time these were the figures
At least a half thousand were unable to get Into
the store before the 1 o'clock hour struck, and It
was truly sad to wltnesi their dlaappolnttd faces.
By a glance at tho figures It will be seen that the
advertisement In The Would bad attracted
444 more readers than the other papers combined;
nearly four times those of tho Times, nearly
nine times those of tho Sun, almost ten times those
of the TYftmiis and Herald.
"I am tickled almost out of my boots," said
Manager Brown to TrtE World reporter. "Wc
simply desired to advertise our goods, and chose
this method of ascertaining which ono of the news
papers would famish ns with the most lucrative
results. There seems to bo little doubt as to tho
choice now, docs there? It's wonderful, simply
wonderful, how largely Tin: Would Is read. All
these people oan get their pens after the 15th Inst. ;
1, 9 can thank TrtE Would for tholr luck. "
COL FELLOWS'S NEW IDEA.
Ho Will Have a Trial Bureau to Assist the
Col. Fellows announces a number of re
forms in tho conduct of tho District-Attorney's
offlco which aro mado possiblo by an
additional appropriation and increased force
of assistants. Old methods, tried and not
found wanting, ho says, are not to bo despised
and disregarded, nor should new experiments
be thought lightly of.
Tho particular chango which ho contem
plates is oiio that will prevent tho accumula
tion of untried indictments in tho ofiico and
will, at tho samo time, placo the assistant
who is assigned to tho trial of a case boforo
tho jury in full possession of a complete and
detailed history of the people's case.
It is tho practical trial of tho caso boforo
indictment, all of tho witnesses for tho peo
ple heiug examined by tho District-Attorney's
deputies before indictment and the prepara
tiou of a brief of law and fact for tho assist
ance of tho Grand Jury and tho trial assistant.
I5y this arrangement tho work of tho ofiico
will bo facilitated and the lumbering of
pigeon holos'with untried indictments will
The Colonel himself will be active in the
trial of cases, tho first to bo taken in hand
being that of Longobardi. the slayer of
Johnny Barrett. This will bo followed by
the trial of the cases of Rollin M. Squire and
Maurice B. Flynn, if those gentleman man
ifest a continued desiro for a speedy deter
mination of their cases.
Tho boodle cases will not be moved on tho
calendar until itfter the disposal by the Court
of Appeals of the questions of law raibed on

A lady and a littlo girl stepped from tho

yesterday afternoon. The little girl missed
her footing and fell down between tho plat

Tho cars wcro just about to start and thero

Christian Jloran, chief engineer in The

Without a moment's hesitation ho let himsolf

pulled Jlr. Jlornu out of the holo just as tho

Tho lady was so grnteful for what had been

thero, but he was so embarrassed tbat ho for

To enable them to do this, they.wlll invite

Pahis, Jan 8. I called upon Sarah llcrnhsrdt
last ivenng it the I'orte St. Martin Tneatre,
Sarah's dressing-room In htr own theatre Is not as
comfortable as the one she had at the Vauderlile,
win re she had a drawing-room and dressing-room.
Hut It Is, nevertheless, a very cosy and artistic
place, hung with tapestry, and aglow with
lights nnd their reflections In manv mirrors. Sarah
aceins to have dropucd things Jaianeso. When I
entered 1 found her sitting on her stool with her
back to a bright tire, literally drying oft. lti
ono corner stood an actor in a picturesque
dlrectotro costume, with well made-up wounds on
cither temple. It wub during the tho lust entre
acte of " La Tosca. " Sarah was In a low-necked
robe of dowered silk, with her hair tied loosely
with ribbon over her shoulders.
'So you apeak French 7" she said In Kngllsh as 1
came In. "Yea? Will tell me what all about."
I extricated a copy of Ihe cvonlng ednbn of
Wednesday's Woui.n from my crua hat and pointed
to a passage for mutating Mr. Uarrymore'a accu
sation. "Here, read me this," Bhe said to a gentleman
who was In the room.
When the purport of iho artlclo had been mado
clear to her she anld; "Why, the man Is mad 1

Jeopardize bis reputation by plagiarizing a scene or
an act from a play that la on the stage? And,
tenez, this gentleman might Just as well accuse
Molero or stealing his plots as Sardou. Yes,

Barah seemed vexed, but was very quiet, though
there was a very cutting saroaam In ncr voice. She
got up and went to her toilet table, and, while
buaylng hcraelf with her make-up for the last act,
"I declare l-never law Mr. Barrymore. Why,
he accuses na of theftl We aro thieves thenl I
suppose you have seen 'Ls Toscaj' Well, have
yon acen 'Nadjesdat' Yon can tell me then If
there Is any resemblance between the two ,
When one sees ' La Tosca ' one only sees Mme.
Barah Bernhardt. It la difficult to compare."
The call-boy here poked hut head In and cried,
" Madame, they are waiting."
Sarah had not qulto finished her toilet. She took
her ease. I could not help looking at the reflection
of her face In the brilliant mirror scon from where
I stood over tho low bamboo screen that hides the
mysteries of the dresalng-taMo. ' noticed that the
eyes of all present followed her as If fascinated,
even those of her familiar friends. Meanwhile her
maid, who was standing by tho fire, waa busied In
opening and reading a pile of letters that lay on
tho mantelpiece. Some she laid aside, othera
wcro thrown into the Are.
One of tho gentlemen present exclaimed: "Ho
la astonishing, this Barrymorc."
' Ah, there I Knoughl" cried Sarah Impatiently.
" That is enough, Barrymore; barry moro than
enough " (this In English), "for to-night. lam
not going to be troubled with It any more."
"Dlen; and little Maurice?"
" Oh, he la as happy aa a sing. "
"Madame, oi offend, "repoatod tho call-boy.
" Celt bUn; yes, as happy as a President of Bo
publlc, and Terka too. Tney seem to Idolize each
other, and that la very well. Maurice Is quite
changed now. He nsed to bo melancholy. Terka
has altered all that. I do not know who of us
three la the happiest, Maurice, Terka or L"
I availed myself of the opportunity to ask her
opinion on " La Tosca, " not as a lessee, but aa an
"It la magnificent, "she said. "Hike the role
as well aa any I have ever played In. fiardon played
out? What nonsense! We shall male & splendid
run of It."
"Madame, on attend," repeated the call-boy
again lu despair.
"Well, "I said, ail withdrew, "1 may say all
"Yet; dlltt lul, ma part. Que c"e$t un ou."
"It Is New Year's Day, Madame, dball 1 add any
greeting to the Americana? A wish of good luck
for the New ear?"
"Oh. onll out I" she cried, with an emphatic wave
of her graceful arms, as though sending a warm
message of love lar away. "Good luck to Ameri
cans! Ti m very good luck to Americans!''
Bhe was not acting when she spoke these last
words, lor sue has much love for and gratitude to

all thoy can to discover tho whereabouts of

been loarncd of his movements since ho left
tho church in Stanton streot on Friday after
noon to call upon n sick parishioner in the

arm with him. Ho novcr reached tho house
of tho sick ono, and only ono person has been
found who baw him after ho loft his study,
which, for his own convenience, was fitted
up in ono corner of the church cditlco. This
ono person is a parishioner, who met him
near tho church.
Tho Hov. .1. O. Fawcett briefly rotated tho
history of Dr. Miles to a Wobld reporter this
morning. Tho missing clergyman was an
Englishman, a graduate of Trinity College,
Dublin s had received a diploma as a member
of tho ltoyal College of Surgeons, and served
twenty years as a snrgcou, first in tho mer
chant marine of Oreat Ilritaiu between
Liverpool and Australia, and afterwards in the
Fronco-PriisRiun wori alterwards joined the
ministry of the Established Church, aud fol
lowed ins friend. Uishop Paddock, to tho
dioceso of Washington Territory.
Ho was called from this remote Hold to St.
Oeorgo's Church, in this city, as assistant rec
tor, and after a year was appointed rector of
tho old Church of tho Ehiphany in Ktunton
stroet. That church was afterwards con
demned as unsafo by the Hoard of Health
and torn down.
Then Dr. Miles raised tho money and built
a now church to which ho gnvo tho namo of
the Church of tho Reformation. It now in
cludes a gymnasium aud kindergarten, nnd
day classes aro taught in tho Sunday-school
room whero 800 children attend services ovory
The services in tho church aio always at
tended by crowds, and Dr. Miles was so
earnest, cnergetio and tireless in his work
thnt ho had his study in tho edifico, nnd
thoro ho and his wife spent much of their
time, lodging in a liouso near by.
Dr. Miles's medical knowledge was brought
into service in his parish work, and ho min
istered to tho physical needs of his peopln.
It is feared that tho immenso amount of work
dono by tho good mun has unsettled his rea.
son, and that ho is wandoring, perhaps novor
to roturn unless found by the searchers for
him. No other explanation of his disappear
ance is advanced, for ho disappeared in broad
daylight, leaving his work as if intending to
roturn within the hour.
lie was of gonial, hopeful temperament,
and suicido was out of tho intettiou his
friends believe. No one could have any en
uiity against him.
News of his return is anxiously awaited by
tho many friends of tho big-hearted laborer
among tno poor.

St. Tjotjib, Jan. 4. Thoro was a serious con- , JkB
flict between the whito and colored soldiers $H
at Jefferson Barracks last night. Three men "PM
will probably die, and it is estimated that Sj
fifty moro hare been injured. m
At this season there aro many recruits at
tho station, and yosterday they drew their Sf
first pay and mado an onslaught on the ggj
sutler. Numoroufl brawls resulted, and a K
crowd from New York resented the famil- sE
iarity of the colored troops, and a fight fol- fuj
lowod. Tho guard-house was filled with diar jfl
orderlies, and still tho row kept up.
Later in the afternoon a drunken colored ig
trooper was seen pursuing a fourteen-year. g.
old whito girl, and n party of -whito troopers '
woro soon after him, and in duo timo handed "M
him over to tho officer of the day. . .
This seemed to enrago a numbor of the col- M
orcd man's comrades, and thoy forthwith left ?M
tho barracks, starting for Carondolet. yW,
On their way they fell in with a squad ot ffi
whito troopers, and proceeded to takev-ven. S?
geance. The white soldiers escaped with 'J'J
few bruises, and mado their way to tho bar. .4.
racks, where they soon made up a party to ra
handlo tho rovolters. .'-pi
Armed with revolvors and carbines, they
started in good order for Carondelet, but be- jjl
fore they had gone fur they were ordered to m
return and disarm by the officer of the day.
They refused to return to their quarters, Rji
but laid down their arms at once, and then 9
proceeded after the enemy. , ,
At tho ltivcr des Peres Bridge they met tho ' a
colored troopers returning. An encounter J
immediately followed and knives, clubs and
rocks wero used acainst eaoh other. ' .-m-;
Tho fight was of the most desperate) w
kind and the white men, in superior force,, gj
wore met by tho discipline ot tho colored yp
troops who uad entered in on a second term Vv
of service. -M
For half an hour the battle waged without 3h
advantage to either side, and on the bridgo m
and road nnd river bed men lay exhausted JE
and beaten down. ,tf
Finally tho belligerents, blinded and if
fagged out, withdrew. 56
A colored trooper reporter the affray at Car-
ondolet police station and bo was locked up ffl.
while tho patrol wagon was sent to the scone
to gather up the injurod. 'jS
In tho mean time the white soldiers had j
gathered in force, and marching to tho sta- , jb
tion demanded that the colored trooper bo JK
given to them. Tho officers refused and pre- rj,
pared for assault. In the mean time word of S
the battle had reached tho barracks and tho 'tfflk
four troops of cavalry were ordered out nnd $&
arrived in Carondelet in time to save tho po- f
lico from attack. Ttjl
The mutineers dispersed, and they -were) "jHi
arrested in detachments on a general order JKJ
to arrest all troopers. 'JfcM
Tho barracks, Carondelet and intervening ''&M
country assumed n military aspect and all J&ifl
night lung the soldiors' tread and the demand Wm
of " Halt!" rang out. &jM
Tho disturbance was quelled, and to-dar ' 1
peaco relgus, though bruises, black eyes and $mI
gashes on half a hundred heads still tell the tjfl
tale of struggle, while in tho hospital at tho ,-i
point of death lie Troopers Livingston, Pe- 1
lerson and Krummeknocker, all white. JM
