duced Her to Knd Life.
The police of the Clymcr street sta
tion, Williamsburg, are searching for
Mrs. Kate C. Bradford, of 658 Bedford
avenue, Williamsburg, who disappeared
from her home early yesterday. She
left behind a letter addressed to her
husband, Charles Bradford, stating that
she intended to commit Bulclde.
Lawyer Peter B. Mahoney, who went
to the Clymer street station and re
ported the disappearance of the woman,
described her as thirty-live years old,
and as wearing a black dress, black
' waist, with blue spots, and a black hat
trimmed with pink.
It Is said that Mrs. Bradford, who Is
quite prominent In Wlllllamsburg so
cial circles, has been cashing certifi
cates for school teachers at a discount,
and In order to carry on the business
has borrowed lurice sums of money
, from varions peodle. It Is said that
, the money received from the certifi
cates was wasted In speculation, nnd
i as her creditors pressed ,er she de
cide! to make away with herself.
On Tuesday night, her hunband and
Lawyer Mahoney both received letters
from her in which she announced her

Probst, wholesale baiter at 99 Heywnrd
street: Alfred C. Squires, oil dealer, 114
Broaod street, New York; J. Corller,
William M. Maguler and a maiden sister
of William N. Lock. Mr. Squires admit
ted that he knew of the meeting and that
Mrs. Bradford owed him money. He re
fused to say how much.
Mr Probst said that he had cashed
many checks for the woman nnd es
teemed her highly. On several occa
sions the checks she had given him had
been from J1.000 to J2.0U0 each, and all
had been honored. Mr. Probst added
that he did not consider that Mrs. Brad
ford owed him any money, and knowing
her sickly condlton when he heard of
her disappearance he made up his mind
that financial troubles had driven her
Insane. Mr. Probst declared that It was
a pity Ruch a happy family as the Brad
fords should be broken up.

CHICAGO, May 11. Two thousand
employees of the Pullman Palace Car
Company quit work to-day. Those who
went out asserted that the entire force
of 4,300 persons would be on strike be
fore night.
Trouble has been brewing for some
time, the men demanding the restoration
of a 33 1-3 per cent, cut In the wages
mado last year. The employers refused
the demand and asserted that they were
running the plant for the purpose of
glglng the men employment.
Vice-President Wicker nnd other ofil
cers of the Company wer at the works
to-day Investigating charges made by
the employees' committee and they were
entirely unprepared for the sudden
irlousness that he situation hnd as
sumed. The men marched out quietly
In groups, and for a time the officers
thought that the strike was confined to
the disaffected few who hod decided to
move without waiting for the decision
of their superiors.
What had suddenly precipitated tho i
Rtrlke was not known, ub the men and
the company officers at Pullman were
not known to have hnd any further con
ference, nnd matters were supposed to be
In the condition In which they were left
nt the close of the conference Wednes
day, when It was thought that the men
hud decided not to strike.

WASHINGTON, May 11. Tho fight
against time In the Senate began Im
mediately after the prayer this morn
ing. Some twenty minutes were occu
pied In the rending of a long, dry docu
ment from the Treasury Department
because Mr. Quay (Itep., Pa ), refused
to allow It to be printed unless It was
rend. A few minutes later, during the
call for bill and resolutions, Mr. Quay
arose and blandly offered a bill entitled
"A bill to establish a code of laws In
the District of Columbia." As he hand
ed the bill to the page boy to take to
the Clerk's desk he remarked, as If It
uori, Mm mn.t nrillnnrv ncnurrMi..!
"I ask for the reading of the bill In
The little page shouldered the bill to
the clerk's desk. The Democrats looked
aghast. The bill yas as big as nn oc
tavo volume. Its reading would con
sume at least a dny.
"Do I understand the Senator to nsk
for the reading of that bill In full?"
asked In amazement Mr. Harris, who Is
In churge of the Tariff bill.
"That was the suggestion of the Sen
ator from Pennsylvania," replied Mr.
Quay, quietly.
"Does the Senntor think," said Mr.
Harris, "In the midst of the present de-
presslon that they day would be vell
. and profitably spent In the reading of
that bill?"
I "I believe," responded Mr. Quay em
i phatlcally, "that so far as the welfare
1 of Pennsylvania ami the country Is
concerned, the rending nf that bill
would be more profitable than the con
I Blderatlon of the Tariff bill "
1 The bill finnlly went over, under the
rule that In ease of objection to the In
troduction of a bill, It must go over for
one day. The Pennsylvania Senator
only smiled. "I might lnrtoduce It to-
! morrow," said he, sotto voce.
Mr. Harris then offered his resolution
to compel the Senate to meet heieafter
at 10 o'clock. He made no effort to
press It to-day, however.
Mr Allen (Pop., Neb.) made a vain ef-
fort to have the Senate resume the con
I slderntlon of his Coxey Investigation
, resolution, but Mr. Harris took him off
the floor with a motion to take up the
Tr.rlff bill
The pending amendment was that of
Mr. Perkins 'al ) to the amendment of
Mr Jones (Ark.) to change the duty on
boiaclc acid. Mr. Jones's amtndment
increased the duty from 20 per cent, ad
valorem to 2 cents per pound. Mr. Fcr
klns's amendment was to Increase It to
tho present rate, 5 cents.

soner Meyer All In.
Counsellor Brooke's Motion to
Acquit Promptly Donied.
Lawyer Chnnler Opens for tlio De
fense This Afternoon.
There were only some odds nnd ends
to clear up in the caso for tho prosecu
tion in the Meyer trial this morning,
A diagram of the fiat 320 East Thir
teenth street, where the alleged poison
ing occurred, was put In evidence.
Frank Snyder, Undertaker Kip's as
sistant, was recalled to the witness
stand. He hnd testified that the name
on tho cards given to him when he went
nfttr the body In Evergreens Cemetery,
was Ludwig Brandt, although the body
was supposed to be that of G. J I. M. J.
Baum and was burled under thnt name.
This morning he lden'llled tho cards
themselves, a transit permit nnd n New
town burial permit fo- the body of G.
H. M. J. Baum.
J Juror Chniles Grosse, at the opening of
court, handed to the Itecorder a letter
that had been nddressed to him, but
which he said he hadn't read. Tho lte
corde. read the letter, but made no com
mtnt. While the transit permit and burial
permit wtie under diBCtisMon, nnd tho
iteiorder was looking over his minutes
of Snxler's testimony, Mr, Wellmnn,
leaning on the rail before the Jury-box,
made some comment on the documents
to the Jury.
Mr. Brooke rebuked him. A tilt fol
lowed In which Mr. Brooke said, In
dignantly: "You are tho most unfnlr man thnt
I ever tried a case with, Mr. Wellmnn;
you know that you have no right to
comment befure tho Jury."
Mr. Brooke nsked the witness to link
nt the documents and tell by what
olnt he had Identified them.
"By the name Gustav Brandt," reidled
the muddled witness, helplessly.
Mr. Brooko went at hnyder with en
ergy. He got Snsder to say he Identified
the papers by their colors. Of course,
all these pcrs arc alike In color. Then
Snyder, when nsked when he first saw
the papers, said he never saw them be
fore to-day. He was glad to get away.
"The people rest," fcald Mr. Mclntyrc
at 11.40 o'clock.
"What! Aren't you going to call Coro
ner Schultze? He was one of your
leading witnesses on the former trial,
and I shall ask to have his testimony
given nn that trial rend to the Jury,
asked Mr. Brooke. He claimed this as
a right, and a discussion followed
In the midst of the dljcusslon of the
subject by Mr Burke, Mr, Wcllm.tn
withdrew all objections to reading the
testimony of the Coroner, nnd Itecorder
Kmythe made hnste to strike "all this
talk" from the records. Then Mr. Well
man read D. Srhultze's direct testimony,
Mr. Burke following w,..i tho cross-examination
Mr. Brooke's desire to get the Coroner's
testimony lufore the Jury was to show
that that official ordered the exhuming
of Brandt's body at the Instance of the
Mutual Life Insurance Compinj. not at
the Instance of the New York District
Attorney, and that the legal nuthorlty
to resurrect the body was obtained from
District-Attorney Nlcoll afterwards.
The defense claim thnt the body was
exhumed Illegally and that the perform
ance showed It was the Mutual Life that
I everybody was working for, rather than
I for the State. Mr. Brooke wanted to
hrlng out nlso that the Coroner hnd not
held an Inpiest, as the law directs. In
stead, he accepted the allldalls of
I Mr. Julian nnd Mr. Gillette, of the Mu
1 tual Life Insurance Company, and held
! his tongue.
The lawyer read the minutes of the
I cross-examination with telling dramatic
effect. Ho wns followed by Mr. Mc
Intyre with n reading of the re
direct testimony. Then Mr. Brooke de
manded thnt the prosecution produce
the cnjisule picked out of a number nf
samples on the former trial by Mullei
ns the size filled by Dr. Meyer with
pure arsenic for dosing Brnndt.
Muller testified that Dr. Meyer gave
Brandt these arsenic apsules eery day
for four or live days till Brandt dial.
Mr. Brooke contends thaCcapsules filled
with pure arsenic would have killed
Brandt within the hour.
Both Mclntvre and Wellmnn declared
that they didn't know what had become
of the capsule, nlthough by Mr. Brooke's
I request. Clerk Welsh hid sealed It In
the envelope nnd given It Into the eus-
1 tody of the prosecution, at the close of
' the former trial.
i Mr. Wellmnn said flippantly:
" Select any size capsule you like, Mr.
Brooke, nnd we will concede that that la
the size Muller Identified as the size used
by Dr Meyer."
" Well, Mr. Wei. man, we will conduct
the defense. It Is. your plain duty, nnd
you know It, t.i produce the capsule
Identified by Muller."
Ther was more sparring and Mr. Well
man said he wns trlng to save time,
while Mr. Brooke had been wasting time
all morning.
. "Now, whnt Is this? Is this a public
censor of the acts of everjbody else In
this court? I will not submit; I but
theie, I will not say anything. The In
terruptlons nnd Interferences of this
man are beneath even contemptuous
It was finnlly agreed that a No. .1
capsule should be accepted as the size.
A No. 3 la about as big as u thimble
for a lady's little linger might be.
The Itecorder pulled a dollar out of his
Siocket, handed It to a messenger ami
s.tld, with disgust expressed In face nnd
"Go out and buy a lot of sample eai
sules." Mr Bro ike moved that th Jury be in
structed to ucipilt Dr Meyer, because of
alleged variations of the piouf with the
Ichargis. First, the Indictment charged
Dr Meyer with poisoning "(limtav II. M.
Baum," nnd suggested no aliases, while
the proof was that "Lulwlg Brandt"
I was the man who died; the Indictment
1 charged poisoning by nntlmony, while
the evidence shuwed that arsenic and an
timony were used, if It Is believed
that unJer the Constitution, Dr.
1 Meer was entitled to kn ivv the
I whole naturo of the charge against him,
nnd the report of Prof, liurmius, ren
dered In May, and the statement of
Muller, made In June, Informed the
District-Attorney that the use of both
arsenic and antimony was charged, nnd
Is wns his duty to submit nil these fnets
to the Grand Jury, so that they might
be Incorporated In the Indictment to
'Inform the defendant of what accusi
tlon he had to meet, nnd because the
testimony of accomplice Muller had not
i been corroborated in accordance with
the law. ... , , .
I This fonnnl motion wns denied and
n recess was ordered, prior to Mr.
Chnnler's oienlg address.

Acoused of Fraud by Mount Ver

Ho Is Locked I'p In Default of
$(l,oOU Hull.
George II, Weyer, a real estate dealer
of this city, was arrested late esterday
afternoon by Deiiuty Sheriff Walgerlng, I
and In default of JCGOO ball was lodged
In Ludlow Street Jail on an order
signed by Justice l)kmnn, of the Su
premo Court In Westchest r County '
The complainants against Weyer
are Sablno Gtintlnn and Pnsqualla
Carfaugus, carpcutets anil hulldtis, of
Mount Vernon, who charge him with
fraudulent inlsrepieseiitatlons in niuk- i
lug a rontract with them.
The trouble, aecnrdlng to the nlllila- I
vlts, resulted from n eontiart tin car
penters made to build six houses for
Weyer at Columbus aenue ami Sixth
street, Mount Vernon, for J''.W"i.
Tho coinplalnuuts allege Weyer was
Insolvent when he made the tonttaut
and leprescntcd that he was wealthy
They state that tin assured them thnt
he owneil the jots on which the houses
were to be erected and seventeen lots
adjoining, and that there was only a
mortgage of l,2"0 on the whole.
On these representations, the plain
tiffs nllege, they erected the houses anil
furnished much of the material. They
claim that they hae since discovered
that when Weyer obtained title to the
property It was subject to a mortgage
of 112.000, anil In October preceding tho
making of the contracts with the plain
tiffs that Wejer executed another mott
gage on the property for $',,i, nnd In
a few months after the contract Weer
placed another mortgage of $1,400 on tho
The plaintiffs nllege that Weyer has
onl inld them on nccount 13.3.VI. and
that there Is still iluu them JG.1W, for
which they bilng suit.

" The World" Hum Forced Mnuy to
Lower Their Price,
Many heads of families with fore
sight are taking advantage of the situ
ation In the retail coal market, brought
about by the determined light of "The
World." an 1 are laving In a supply of
coal for net! Winter at the low prices
resultlri, from the jiractlcal methods
adopted by " Th- Woild" In Its battle
with the magnates.
"The W.uld' has sold 5 332 tons of
coal at the uniform pr'ce of $(.M per ton,
vvhleli Is 7", cents less than the price
lived b) the Coal Exchange, nnd which
tin magnates Insist Is the lowest figure
that woull vield a profit.
Hut the Exchange cannot held the re
talleis They rtalize that something has
slunk the market, and they ure fleeing
t.iciver The prudent bu.v er by " shoi
Pin.:" a little, can find dealeia who ure
bowing before the storm, and are
pli.oliiL' coal at prices far below the es
tablished Jala per ton. That Is what
"'Hie World" has been fighting for.
There was nn ntttmpt made to shut
off " The World's" nqiply. but the peo
pic's super Is able to announce a con
tinuance Indefinitely of the jiresent J4W)
rate, and orders ninv be left at either of
the New York oi Brooklyn offices for
coal delivered nn)vvheie In cither city.
When dealers are able to deliver coal
at tl 7n ier t n. as one dealer did In the
can' of a c.Miti i' t for fuel for n public
Institution last week. It Is silly for them
to Insist that there Is no profit at less
than $"' -i of course, this dealer makes
a prollt at 13.?.', and that Is J1.10 less
than f' -'.
A profit of 1 4C on tho ton of coal de
livered tj the lamlly of a vvorklngman
Is cruelly exorbitant, and only possible
throuuh a close monopoly. It Is that
monosioly " The World"' Is fighting.

Tip still lives. The most deadly poison "KH'sfl
known to sclencs ha failed to lay him Hi(9
low. Man's knowledge has proved In- -iHvB
effectual ngalnst the Innate cunning of IBsbbbbI
the big pachyderm. bbbbbbIIbbI
At C o'clock this morning Drs. Hunt- fiHfafl
It gtnn and Allen, carrying leather bag., 'iNHI
enured the elephant-bouse. Their ''HbbbbbI
knowledge of toxicology caused them to 'Hil
be singled out by the Rark C'ommls- 'laB&fl
sloners tn superintend Ihe admlnlstra 'bbbbbVB
tlon of the deadly drug which was to 4JbbbbbbbbbbIbbbbI
make of Tip a good elephant. They JH
had a little package off cyanide o ''ll
potassium, six ounces In all, sufficient to B
kill a regiment of men. fJO
A crowd of fully one hundred peoplt IHH
hnd gathered around the building. Half 'Vti
of them were newspaper men, who had MaiHTo
been detailed to witness the execution. IH'?
Tnrk Commissioners Clausen, Strau. '1H
nnd Hell nrrlved shortly after, nnd the 'Hi-J
quintet went Into the elephant-house and 'M'-'k
shut the door t'ght. At 6.30 o'clock the ''-vsbbbbbbbb1
dcors were osiencd, and those who had MaHii
passes were allow ed to enter. Hl'
Commissioners Hell nnd Straus took H
charge of things, and soon hnd a rope i3Hi
stretched across the wide asphalt pave- lll
ment In front of Tip's cage. 'H'
Wns Tip Suspicious? HfJ
All this time Tip stood behind his Iron- tnBli
barred barrier nnd swung his trunk HiJ
back and forth. His little eyes twin- ji
klcd and had a knowing look. !'!sHr
Keeper Snyder looked In and grinned. bbbbbbbT
"Why, he's dead onto this scheme," waa PH
his only comment. , -bbbbv .'
Snyder refused point-blank to be the "JaaBBBBali'J
one to give Tip the solson, so Otto '$B;
Mopls. an old animal trainer, who had 'S.Blij
churge of Tip way back In 1681, was aj- !?Ml-5

It was n.,',0 o'clock when Assistant asHF
Supt. Hums handed Dr. Horace Allen. tlr
curator of the Museum of Natural His- :H'v
tory, a big carrot, which he had scooped 'iLH):
out and fitted with a plug made from Hi
unother carrot. tesBBB
Or. Allen took from his bag a package SsHi-'
of the poison and poured two ounces of 'JHo

carrot. The plus was neatly Inserted 'SflH

held the "arrot out to Tip with a word 19H $

w .h Its prehensile finger, stretched out rH:.
und grasped the carrot glnzerly. 'bbbbbbbi '
Every one held his breach. The men faB!
ot science had said that the stun would "H
hardly reach Tip's stomach before he ''SH'si
I would roll over dead. 'KsM".
Slowly and deliberately Tip curled his -iM':.

I disappeared and the spectators waited 1bH
to see the live tons of flesh fall with a ''laBBBaaliJ
thud and stiffen In the agonies of death. ffMls:
i Hut Tip didn't fall worth a cent. He fH
gave the carrot a crunch between hla vH:'
powerful jaws nnd then deliberately 'iiHiH
'siat It out In several pieces. Still, the -lal-t
spectators thought that enough of the HK
deadly stuff had found Its way into Tip's JH f
stomuch to do for him. There was, t''4Bi fi
however, no perceptible change In the hbbbbbbI -
elephant's demeanor. i.lH t'i
Dr. Allen nt once called for an apple, i-DI i
land Mr, Hums preiiared one to receive VH'9
another quantity of the poison. Two im i
i eumes more of the white powder was 'sH'
tiourel Into the hollow apple and plugged .,

The elephant tojk It, wrapped the end CHQ
of his trunk aroun 1 It, crushed It Into a WbbbbbV"
pulti and deliberately tossed it away, i;M'A
Meantime four men, each carryuuT -','c
a Winchester repeating rifle, filed In and 'Bt?
took a ,tand opposite Tip's cage. riHft
They were there to be useful In case .'H;
of an emergency -aaaBBWi
Shortly after their entrance another !H'i
man, with u rifle, presented himself, and rH'f

After watching the strangers move- .??!
