I . THE WORLD: TUESDAY EVENING; APRIL 24, 1894. ' r' g
I BROOKLYN NEWS.
I HIS HOUSE USED AS A WET.
Five Bullets Shatter Smith's Win
dows at Different Times.
Three . Fired In Quirk Succession
Came Close to Him.
W. It. Smith, of 112 Rodney street,
visited tho Clymer street station, Wlll
laniBburg", this morning, nnd requested
tho police to nnd out who has been
shooting Into his house of late. Detcc-tlve-Sergt.
Holland Is now working on
the case.
' There Is considerable mystery about
the matter, and Mr.Smlth docs not know
whether to believe he has a secret
enemy or Is simply the victim of some
Idiot who practises shooting but has no
I little control over his revolver that the
balls go wild.
Mr. Smith's residence Is near Bedford
avenue. In the most arlstocratlo and
wealthy section of Williamsburg. All
the bullets which have come Into his
house have come from the direction of
Keap street. In tho rear. There are
no upartment-houses on that part of
Kcap street, and the people living on
the block have always borno the repu
tation of being respectable citizens.
On New Year's eve last Mr. Smith
was sitting In his bedroom on the
second floor of the house, when he
heard several revolver shots, and the
window-glass only a loot or two away
from where ho was sitting was shat
tered. When ho Investigated the next
morning he fonnd one bullet lying on
the carpet and two others In the window-sill.
About three weeks ago, at 0 o'clock
cue evening, another bullet came singing
through the window. This time the fe
male members of the family were In
allied to be hysterical, and Mr. Smith
rnide a vigorous search for the un
krovn who was using his house for a
tarset.
Last night a bullet went Into the bed
rccm again. Mr. Smith then became
alarmed for fear that somo one of his
family might be killed at any time.
When ho went to the station this morn
li'f, Smith carried thj latest leaden mes
senger with him. It 13 a 32-callbre re
volver bullet.
"The only thing that has surprised me
'Is that none of my people has been
killed," said Mr. Smith, this morning.
"I wont to see this fellow punished, for
'he has worried my wife and myself
- nearly to death during the past few
- months."
IHEWANTS TO SEE THEBDQKS.
But His Right Is Denied by Build
.'ng Association Offioiala
Mnllon After Facts to Use In His
Canvass for President.
It Is estimated that there are 15,000
persons In Brooklyn connected with
building and loan associations. Every
one of them should be Interested In a
test case that came before Justice
l'ratt. In the Supreme Court, this morn
Ins. One of the sections In every set
of building and loan association laws
i states that the members can Inspect the
books of their association whenever
i they desire to do so.
This morning Thomas II. Mallon ask
ed Justice Pratt for a peremptory writ
of mandamus to compel Henry Thorap
( son, President, and W. II. Rawlins,
i Secretary, of the East Brooklyn Co
t operative Building Association, to allow
,i him to Inspect the register of the mem
j bers of the Association. Mallon wants
, to get the names and addresses of the
! 1,400 members of the Association. He
claims that the officers were petitioned
to show (he books, but have refused
t to do so.
Mr. Mnllon Is a candidate for the
Presidency of the Association. The elec
tion Is to be held on April 27. He says
he has examined the accounts of the
Association and has discovered lrregu
$ larltles. lie wants to post the members
at l.me of his discoveries In the Inter-
) Cats of his p.invns.
He was checkmated by the officers
-j this morning. They denied flatly every
.1 fctater.ient made by Mallon. This raised
a qi'vstlon of fact. A Judge cannot de
5; clde on the fncts. They must go to a
Jurj. Mr, Mallon was obliged to be con-
7 tent with an alternative writ of mnnda
w mu'j, which will necessitate a trial of
i.tBthf fai'ts by Jury. In the meanttmo tho
,el(ctlon will he held.

CAKARSIE'S GHOST IN BLACK.
Garbed as a Woman It Frightens
People at tho Graveyard.
Even Spoke to a Young Man Who
Offered to Act as Escort.
CANAIISIE, L. I , April 24.-A11 of the
people of Canarslo are as much excited
over the repeated announcement that
there Is a ghost In town as were their
neighbors of Itockaway Beach a year
or so ago by the wild man of the woods.
Bay men and boat-house keepers talk
of little else than the apparition that Is
said to nightly haunt the Church road
that runs past the graveyard, while all
citizens agree In the conclusion that the
spectre must be caught or the delusion,
If It Is a delusion, dissolved before the
Summer Beason opens, or else Canarsle
Is doomed to be the dullest shore resort
on Ionir Islanu.
For the Bake of Canansle'B future Capt.
Brown, the life-saver, has commissioned
himself to run the mystery to earth or
thin nlr, and believing that publicity may
lead somo other community to lay claim
to the ghost as an escaped attraction
he told an Evening World" reporter
of the terror It has created.
1'nllke most ghosts, Canarsle's appa
rition appears in the black apparel of a
mourning widow. It was discovered, so
Capt. Brown said, by Will Hlder, a Sal
vation Army hero, who was returning
home from a meeting the other night
whistling "Gates Ajar." When Just at
the entrance to the village graveyard
the spectre appeared and raised a hand
of warning.
Itlder Is a temperance man, a thor
ough soldier among the Salvationists
and believing that the time had come
for him to solve his theory that ghosts
are material he reached out his hand
to grasp tho spectre. As he did so It
disappeared, vanishing into the grave
yard atmosphere Just as Riders hat
rose several Inches, and every hair of
his head pointed directly towards the
Milky Way.
Thoroughly frightened, Rider ran
along the Church road and frantically
begged Policeman Miller, whom he met,
to take him home.
The experience of Richard Quyler, as
related by Capt. Brown, was even more
exciting than that of Rider. Quyler
Is not gifted with the peculiar ability
of discernment that enables a man
to recognize a ghost when he sees
one, and when he met the apparition
and was asked by it In anything but
a graveyard tone to point the way to
a neighboring farm-house, Cuyler gal
lantly offered to act as escort. When
It was necessary to leap over a brook
he Jumped first and then turned to give
the ghost hts hand. It had disappeared,
however, and only the fact that there
was water near saved the young man
from fainting.
Even Policeman Frank Ford claims
he met the figure near a lumber yard,
but when he went to arrest it as a
suspicious character. It vanished. He
related his experience to Judge Ford,
but the latter Is an extremely practical
man, and told an "Evening World" re
porter that It Is his opinion the spectre
Is a suspicious husband impersonating
a ghost for the purpose of getting evi
dence that may be used In a possible
divorce suit.
Canarsle Is thoroughly excited, how
ever, and detectives are now more pop
ular than the owners of oyster beds.

NO DIVORCE, NO WEDDING.
Thnt'a Why Conklln Conldn't Take
n Second Wife In SayvlHe.
SAYVILL.E. L. I., April 24.-The young
folks of this village have enough to
busy their minds and tongues for weeks.
The majority of them had received Invi
tations to the marriage of Miss Leo Gins
cow to William Conklln last night. But
tho wedding didn't take place.
Instead the crestfallen pair had to ex-
fdaln that the Jury selected to try the
ntended bridegroom's suit for divorce
from his wife, who was a Mrs. Glover,
had weakly failed to perform the work
expected of them and had decided
against htm. As they wouldn't take one
wife nway from him he couldn't take
another wife, and the ceremony was In
definitely postponed.
Mr. Conklln nnd Miss Glascow were
certain that the divorce would be
granted, for Mr. Conklln's wife ran
away from him a few weeks after their
marriage several years nto.
L0HMANN NOT BACK YET.
He Warn Expected to Reach Brook
lyn, a Prisoner, To-Dnj
Superintendent of Police Campbell, of
Brooklyn, said this morning that Detec
tive Zundt, who went to Toronto for
William G. Lohmann, the ex-Caahler of
the Excise Department, had not yet
started for home with his prisoner.
Chief Campbell said lie had expected to
see Lohmann this morning, and could
not account for the delay.
Lohmann has ne-'er been Indicted.
He was arrested on complaint of two
saloon-keepers, who swear that he never
turned over to the city the $100 that they
each paid him for a license.
Lohmann, It Is said, threatens to
" make It exceedingly wrm" for some
body when he returns.
He Is quoted as Intimating that oth
ers, and not himself, benefited by the
frauds of which he is accused.

Police Sny tlint Mn. Kelly's Dentil
Was Accidental.
The police of the Seventeenth Pre
cinct, Brooklyn, have Investigated the
death of Mrs. Annie Kelly, of Christo
pher street nnd Hellmont avenue, and
are satisfied that her death was due to
occidental causes. Her body was found
yesterday morning on her own stoop
with the neck broken. It has now trans
pi red that Mrs. Kelly attended a mixed
ale party the night before and that after
1 returning homo she wanted to go out for
a drink, but her husband locked the
door. The police believe she fell from
the second-story window while attempt
ing to get out.

ELECTION INSPECTORS FREE.
Four Gravesanders Eoloased from
Jail in Brooklyn To-Day.
Favored Above Other Prisoners by
Sheriff nuttltng.
The first of the Qravescnd election In
spectors to gain their liberty, walked
out of Raymond Street Jail, In Brook
lyn, shortly before 8 o'clock this morn
ing. The released men are W. II, Stewart,
W, I. Tuthlll, John L. Cunllffe and Oar
rcttson Morris. They arose at 8 o'clock
this morning, took their last cup of
coffee In the prison nnd then waited
for Sheriff William J. Buttling to give
the word for their release.
They had all served twenty-nine days
In the Jail for the part they played
with John Y. McKane In the Oravesend
election frauds.
The men had not been treated as com
mon prisoners, and It Is an open secret
that many rules of the Jail were vio
lated In their favor. Sheriff Buttling
this morning departed from the rule
generally observed by allowing the In
spectors to be released at 7.S0 o'clock,
while ordinary prisoners are never re
leased from the Jail before 8 o'clock.
For this reason several of the Inspec
tors' friends from Gravesend missed
them.
The four Inspectors went straight to
Coney Island after gaining their free
dom. There aro still three Inspectors in
Jail. They are James H. Cropsey. N.
J. Johnson and Harlan Crandall. These
men were sentenced by Judge Brown
to serve thirty days In Jail and pay a
fine of 1250. They will be released to
morrow morning, providing the fines
are paid,
All the other Oravesend offenders, ex
cept. John Y. McKane, are serving their
time at the Kings County Penitentiary.

BIG TROLLEY FIGHT AHEAD.
Flynn's Syndicate May Be
Blooked by an Injunction.
Work Under " Cold Thirteen" Fran
chises to lie Contested.
It was announced In Brooklyn on the
best authority this morning that the
signing of the contract for the construc
tion of 100 miles of new trolley lines for
the Nassau Electric Railroad Company
will reopen the fight against the P. II.
Flynn syndicate begun by William J.
Gaynor and Edward M. Orout, and that
all the old allegations of scandal will
again be aired.
Lawyer Edward M. Grout Is watching
the Railroad Company, with a view of
beginning an action In court as soon as
ground Is broken on certain portions of
the proposed loute. Work has already
been begun on the Thirty-ninth street
branch, and next week It Is expected
that 000 men will be put to work on the
other lines.
As soon as this Is done by the Nassau
Company application will be made for
an Injunction restraining the Flynn syn
dicate from constructing the roads. The
Injunction will be asked on the ground
that the thirteen members of the old
Board of Aldermen Illegally granted the
franchises.
When the franchises were given away
by the Aldermen to their friends, Law
yer Grout, In behalf of his client, John
Adamaon, offered J235.000 for the same
privileges. The Aldermen refused the
offer, and gave Flynn, the friend of Sen
ator Coffey, who was then President of
the Board, the right to construct roads
on nearly every available street.
The only line not covered In Mr. Adam
son's petition Is the Thirty-ninth street
route, where work has begun. James C.
Church, counsel for Flynn, stated to
day that the Adamson people had
warned his clients that as soon as work
was begun on the other routes they
would apply for an Injunction on the
same grounds which they argued be
fore the Aldermen.
P. H. Flynn, when seen by an "Even
ing World reporter, said:
"We are getting In Iron for the other
routes, but as yet we have only be
gun work on the Thirty-ninth street
route. The other routes are, or may
be, In litigation If we begin work now.
We have not decided upon our plan
of action yet."
The most peculiar part of the news
that a contract has been signed for tho
construction of tbe new roads Is the
announcement that Flynn now only
holds a minority of the stock of the
Company.
Mr. Flynn has always dented the
transfer of the stock, and now well
poBted persons think the action proves
beyond all doubt that there Is a plckan
nlny In the woodpile.
It Is expected that when the Injunc
tion proceedings are taken Into court
they will be attended by more sensa
tional evidence than has been hereto
fore revealed.

THEATRE TRAIN ESCAPED.
But a Dastardly Attempt Was
Made to Wreok It at fielmar.
Saved by a Belated Freight, Which
Struck the Pile of Tics.
ASBUItY PAIIK. N. J April 21.
Early this morning a deliberate attempt
was made to wreck the "Theatre
Train" from New Yorlc on the New
Yoik and I.ons Branch Railroad, be
tween Belmnr nnd Como.
The train arrives at Anbury Turk at
1.12 A. M. The next stop Is Belmnr,
after which no stops are made except
on signal.
The miscreants piled tits on both
tracks.
The local freight train, which was be
hind time, and running Just ahead of
the "theatre train," ran Into the pile
of ties, and came to a stop, with the
engine's nose burled In the ties.
Had the train been runnlnjr nt a hlRh
rate of speed It would have been a total
wreck. As It was, the enKlnc was
much damaRed, and the rails were torn
nnd twisted by the force of the blow.
Supt. Blodnett refuses to talk of the
wreck. The mr-tter Is now In the
hands of the Company's detectives.

Jerser Cltr Children III from Hnt
Innr "Unulile-llendetl Dutchmen."
Katie Gleason, six years old, of 40
Jackson avenue, Jersey City, and her
cousin are 111 from eating poisoned
candy, which she bought last Friday
afternoon at the store of Mrs. Galla
gher, C03 Communlpaw avenue.
The confection Is known as "double
headed Dutchmen." It Is made of Choc
olate In the shape of two male figures
standing back to back.
Katie shared her enndy with her
cousin, the daughter of Mortimer Glea
Bon, of 53 Jackson avenue. Shortly after
eating It both children were taken vio
lently 111. Dr. Muttart, who was called
tp attend them, said they were suffer
ing from poisoning. After several hours'
work and the administration of nntl
doles the doctor pronounced the chil
dren out of danger.
Mrs. Gallagher said the "double
headed Dutchmen" were very popular
with children, and that she had sold a
large quantity, but had never before
heard any complaint. She said that a
Bhort time ago she stopped selling a
candy of similar design culled the "New
York Alderman" because It was found
to be unwholesome.
The wholesale dealer of whom Mrs.
Gallagher bought the candy said he had

Stroussc, who works on tho furm of

who had recently been discharged from
Becker's employ, and who believed that
Strousso was responsible for It, sprang
from behind an obstruction In the barn
which had concealed him, and aimed
a furious blow with nn nxe nt Stroushe's
hend. It was a glancing blow, and
cut the flesh from the top of the hend

CONTRADICT REV. MAYHAM.
Militiamen Snr Hie Srnthlnff Ser

ELIZABETH. N. J., April 24.-The
members of Company F, Third Regi
ment, of Itnhway, aro greatly Incensed
over the severe pulpit attack made on
the command last Sunday by Rev. T.
C. Mnyham, pastor of the Second
Methodist Church, of Rahway, nnd the
matter on the subject of an animated
discussion last night at the Regimental
Headquarters In this city.
Col. l.ee and the Btaff were all at the
opening of the new armory of Com
pany F last week, nnd they declare
that burring a slight quarrel between
two civilians, which was quickly sup
pressed, there was nothing about thb
reception to find fault with except by
cranks. They say Rev.Mayham's re
marks were wholly uncoiled for.
It Is likely a committee from the
compnny will cnll on Rev. Mr. Mayham
nnd ask him to make a retraction of the
part of his language where he called
for the indictment by the Grand Jurj
of the promoters of the reception.
Rev. Mr. Mayham Is known ns the
soldier-preacher of Rahway, being a
veteran of the civil war and a mem
ber of the Grand Army. He Is at times
very quick-tempered and rather hasty,
a year ago obtaining unpleasant
notoriety In the newspapers by severely
kicking a boy In the church whom he
found walking over the carpet with mud
on his boots.
The bnv's father went before Police
Justice Frazce and had the clergyman
arrested for the assault, but through
the influence ot some of his parlshoners
the matter was compromised and did
not come to a trial. Rev. Mayham
claimed nt first that he was Justified In
his action.

Jegledorl resented Mrs. Tori's Intru

Mrs. Schnell says that when she re
turned home from a walk last Sunday
night she was confronted at the door
by a thickly veiled woman, who, with
out a word, threw the pepper straight
at her face, anl then seizing her around
the unlut flung her Into the hallway.
The strange woman escaped.
Town Physician Byrnes administered

FELT HER GARTER WAS ALIVE.
Mra Sohmidt Shrieked and a Snake
Wriggled to the Floor.
Then n Brnvo Grlpmnn Killed the
Serpent In a CnWo Car.
Quite recovered from tier thrilling ex
perience. Mm. Iteclna Schmidt Is re
ceiving the admiration of ahudderlng
bevies of women friends to-day for her
rare presence of mind nnd marked hero
Ism ns she tells of how her slmpely ankle
wns squeezed by a colling reptile Inst
evening In a crowded Third avenue cable
car, nnd how she calmly lifted her
skirts nnd shook off the serpent's clasp
so that the grlpman of car IG could kill
The people In the car tell It differ
entlv. They say that us car 48 stopped
at Twenty-ninth st.-eet on the way up
town there was a piercing shriek, fol
lowed by agonizing cries for help, nnd a '
plump nnd prtty oung womnn suddenly
threw one dainty shoe out before her, '
pulled up her skirts nnd then yelled.
There was n live garter Just nbove her
shoe top. The young womnn cried: j
"Take It off, some fine!"
Hefore the oldest man in the car could
reuch the frightened Mrs. Schmidt, the
gnrtcr had nrlggled oft to the tloor of
the car.
The grlpman had heard some one yell
that a loa constrictor wns loose In the
cnr. Ho rushed In with one of hi levers
and crushed the life out of the serpent.
It wns a gartpr snake, probably Just
In from the country In a farmer's
basket of garden truck. It wns a foot
long and ns thlrk ns Mrs. Iteglna
Schmidt's dimpled lltle finger, but It was
big enough to create a sensation.

MISS DEVQE'S S WETEftBT.
.
Donie3 that She Spent tho Stolen
Money on Him.
Says lie Dili Not Go Cnrrlngo Riding
at Her Expense.
Alone In her cell In Jefferson Market
Prison this tnornlns Kunlce Devoe, the
pretty dark-eyeu usslstant cashier of
Truesdell, Spreter & Co., the Eighth ave
nue ilry-.TOods ilenlers, wept bitterly
and admitted the truth ot the charges
against her.
The young woman was held yesterday
In Jl.uuu ball by Justice McMalion for
trial In the Court of General Sessions nn
a. charge preferred by J. II. Truesdell.
In her confession of guilt ."flNs Utue
stated thnt she had been stealing from
tier employers since October last. Tho
specific complaint chaws tne larceny of
J0, but the young woiiiuu says that she
I has taken fully Jl.Omj.
i The exact amount ilie does not know,
according to her story.
I Whilii .Mlsi Devoi. v.as In prison 111-
I lam ll.ildnln, a bMrdloss youth, not yet
I out of his teens, and employed us a
time-keeper In TrueJell'B stoie, was
I lighting, he claimed, a tierce battle with
conscler.ee.
I Young lliildnln wns engaged to bo
'married to Miss Devoe. It sthu
gift of n gold w.ilelt which ho received
Ironi Mli l'eoe that aroused the sus.
plelons of Tii.esdell, Spretir . Co., nnd
led to her downfall, liesides this gift,
It Is alleged, she uccu.lonully took liald
win for u carriage rlile.
"Shall 1 give Miss Devop up?" Inter
rogatively replied ll.ildnln to a ques
tion put to him by a reporter, "hhall
I give the girl up whom 1 expected tu
in.ury? Don't iial; me, please.
I "Whit has happened li disgraceful
and him! to bear I could not at tlrst
billee It, but Eunice has acknowledged
I her wrongdoing.
"Ewnlwdv knew thit I w.i l'eejilni;
I com any with her and t iy will pity
me if 1 eltn - to her In In r trouble. I
cin't s.i wmt I wU t. I n iv g" and
see her t,i-d.i). It ci nn hard to uttert
her now."
1 The outh said Unit he had paid Miss
leoe eierv cent that sho had eer
glen him, and tli.it the repoits that
he had gone cartlaso rMIng with her
frequently at her epense was untrue.
Mr Truesdell said this morning that
he should press the chaige against the
joiiik worn in.
"It will tike pome time to nscertnln
the exact anunint of Miss Devoe's steal-
i Ing.i," Mr. Truesdell said to-day. "We
I are going through our books now."
