K FBEVBNTIHO A BOANDAL?
wi The tory of the maniac of the Her. H.
H F. Aran, of Morrisanla, and Mrs. flnis
Hr Emma OnsisTic. a bewitching widow, pub.
K llshed exclusively by The Would this morn.
K . In?. Is m Interesting at a sensational novel.
K' 'Xns young clergyman betrothed himself
K. solemnly to the widow two yean ago during
H, the season of Lent. They wonla then have
Hb been united hod not tho rules of the 0 hurch
Hf forbidden It during tho Lenten season.
Hr After that the reTerond suitor had a
Hljp change of heart and desired to break
IH his engsgement. The case was transferred
Hs from the Court of Cupid to that of tho learned
U' Bishop of the dloceso. Dr. FoTren do-
tt eided that the minister must keep his word
Ms and make the widow his wife, although he
H might refuse to allow her to become so in
pE. aught but name.
pKV Themarrlago took place o week ago. But
B t the altar's foot the Be r. Mr. Auld solemnly
H , renounced the woman he was about to make
pHff' bis wife, saying :" I will let you be mv wife
Jk in name.. I will never lite with you. I will
Kr try and provide for you, but you must nover
pHr darken my threshold." In the face of this
Hft, the presiding minister united the couple in
E the solemn words of tho Church service.
pK& These remarkablo people, now that the story
K, fa known, declare their notion to have been
pEtf induced to ' ' prevent a scandal " in the
pHK Church. "Was not this mockery of marriage
Hk'' the greatest scandal that could be put upon
Hh the Church 7, Was not tho whole marriage
ppB' ceremony inoludlng the responses of tho
ppHp bridegroom, a falsehood and a sham at the
pBP very altar ?
H The woman who is now Mr. Aula's wife is
Hip spoken of as bearing an unblemished charac.
pHBft tor, and the fault seems to lie wholly with'
pBnb' the reverend and vacillating husband. If the
ppff 'widow had possessed proper spirit aho would
pK? have refused to become his wife. Bhe ought
pHJt to have left him with his mother.
Efc SI "BADGES." EOBBEBY O0KM0H7
pB; People are trying to laugh down Pnn,
HPt Dalt's story about the attack made
pHt vipon, him by two " badger " game thieves in
pMr the Fourth avenue flat. Some go so far as to
KF soy that Phil was struck with a'bottle in a
ppK" woman scrape and not shot at all. But
pHe n flattened bullet in the room, a dls-
ppK; charged revolver, a wound in the
pBjK head and a liberal amount of powder burned
ppEjT into the skin do not usually result from a
Nf blow with a bottle.
ppjjyf Whether Pm?. had made previous visits to
ppEv tho flat has nothing more to do with the case
pHp than the flowers that bloom In the spring.
HP' Beyond doubt a bold attempt to rob Daly
pppjjp was concocted by persons who knew that he
ppHjI. always carried a large amount of money
ppEp about his clothes, and the ruffians ought to
Hr he tracked and severely punished.
ppKjr There is good reason to believe that the
B crime of which Dalt nearly became the vlo-
pRff. tim is too common in New York. The peo-
ppM pie Implicated In thisbaffled attempt are prob-
K ably regularly engaged in that line of bnsi.
pBif. nets. Not one man in a hundred would have
B9 resisted two armed men as Daly did, especially
pHI when resistance would disclose the fact
pHfi of bis visit to a disreputable place. The
pK$ natural thing would have been for the en.
flR trapped Individual to quietly submit to rob.
BHRe bery, and no. one knows how many men are
K; thus despoiled.
ppE The subject is a good one for police inquiry,
pppjj and Chief Bxbxss is just the man to run such
pflr criminals to earth. Be has a clue in the Dalt
PHf case which may lead to startling revelations.

A Letter Purporting- to Have Jlecn Written

CmcAoo, Dec a, Tho following is published

A letter written by him has come into tho posses

This Is essentially Spiritualism: bnt in Tenny
son's esse, at least so far as tho letter indicates,
he is his ownmedlnm. The statement ho makes
is curious. Tho letter is in tho poet's hand
writing It is dated Farringford, Freshwater,

"IF YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS."
"The Evening Warld'a " Interesting Query
Awaken Interest In Georgia.
With a commendable spirit of emulation tho
Atlanta Journal, in a recent issue, devoted
nearly two columns to interviews obtained from
Georgia citizens of both sexes as to what they
wonld do if they had a million dollars.
The widespread interest which was awakened
by this dlsousalon in the columns of Tue Evix
nto World, as evidenced from the number of
letters received upon the subject, moed tho
Journal to follow up the idea and submit to its
readers the different expressions of opinion on
the interesting topic.
Among the ladles who were asked "what they
would do if they had a million dollars " there
were but a few cases where a portion of the
money would not be devoted to chsritablo pur
poses, while among tho men, whilo charity
formed a prominent excuse for getting rid of
the large sum, in the main they would devote
the major part to enjoying life in all its
branches. One enthuilaatie Individual declared
that he would run a baseball team during tho
Another said he would devote seven hundred
thousand of it iu trying to make Atlanta a Pro
hibition town, while an unpatriotic military
gentleman announced that ho would live the
rest of his life in l'aris.
Congratulations aredue, the Atlanta Journal
for its enterprise iu following In tho Yootsteps of

with a lively toplo for discusalnn, which is alike

A centlemon who has just returned from

tells mo that he thinks the press ought to

were practlsod upon him. And yot tho
traveller enjoys an immunity now such as
can hardly bo dreamed of by those who havo
not beenthcro In tho past two or three years.
Thoro-nas a timo whon tho hotel keepers,
tho drivers of hacks, and tho owners of the
proporty surrounding tho cataract wero
roally banded tocother in ono cicantio
conspiracy for flctclnc tho public. Thero
wan no way of redress for their merciless ex
actions. It was impossible for any one to
lobtain oven a distant climpse of the Falls
unless ho paid toll to the sharpers who
hemmed him in from every side. Sevoral of
tho inhabitants of tho village who wore inter
ested in the " bazaars" and points of Interest
wero iu a sort of nnu with the legion of hack
men for the purpose of perfecting n system of
Shlebotomy. Uoat Island, tho Suspension
ridge. Prospect Park and all tho other natu
ral objects of Interest in tho vicinity wero
each gunrded bysomebody who was author
ized to lay toll. At the snmo timo the drivers
and guides received a regular rate of com
mission from tho proprietors of tho fancy
stores in the Clifton House, the Cataract
House, tho Whirlpool Rapids storo and all tho
Indian bazaars for every visitor whom thoy
could bring to these places. In September
lost, while paving a visit to the Falls. I found
that this had all been changed. Goat Island
and all tho land on cither side of tho river
and falls is now open and free to everybody.
It is no longer necessary for a traveller to fill
his pockets with quarters, half dollars and
dollars for the Imps who. formerly confronted
him st every turn. Tho hackmeu, who for
impudence surpass anything that their tribo
can produco in the world, ore still as activo
as ever, but a stop lias boon put to tue opera
tion of the gouges which they onco worked
in perfect security. All this has been
duo to the supervision of the Reservation
Commission which ttndor the author
ity of Canada and New York Btato has con
verted tho region into an intornational park
and which has dono much to enhance, the
natural attractions of the place. Ho far as it
is within the power of tho Commission it has
abolished alt fees, tips and tolls and has in
troduced a system of cheap transit in coaches.
It is now possible to rido at leisure over Goat
Island and Prospect Park for a quarter of t
dollar, where, m former times, $5 or $10
would hao been the smallest amount that a
tourist would have had to pay for those
privileges after being rushed around
for nn hour or two and then landed
at his hotol. Each time that
ha might wish to have n glimpse of tho cata
ract ho Vios compelled to submit to the saino,

of sharpers who nro on the lookout for Inno
cent travellers who do not know how to es
cape robbery, but Nlogary Falls is no longer
the scene of tho imposition and swindling
that It once was. Ib is not generally known,
however, that theso harpies are now under
control and that tho laud-grabbers who
fenced in tho Fallshave been scattered to tho
four winds. If it wero, many a traveller who
has cursed them and pledged himself never
to be caught a second timo in their clutches
would bo inclined to visit tho great wonder
