An unusually fiendish and mysterious murder, re fembling in many ways the barrel murdc-r, was dis covered yesterday on the top floor of a well kept tenement house at No. 238 East Thirtieth-st. A small boy named George Kelly entered the apart rr.fnts from the fire es<-ap" to shut off the faucet whfcfa was causing water to leak through the ceil ing into the apartments on the ground floor. The lad. who was sent through the window by the land lord of the premises. Gerried E. Moore, stumbled over the body of the occupant. Garbed M. Ken tooni. a Turkiab Armenian from Kharput. lying on the floor of the main room near the front door, which was bolted. - Policeman James F. Mooney. of the East Thirty fifth-st. station, was called, and he summoned Dr. Moore from Bellevue Hospital. The latter said that the man, who had been almost decapitated by a knife Blast) across the throat and had many stab wounds on the chest and body and a cut on the back of the neck ancs head, had been dead at least eight or nine hours. Ke said it was clearly a case of murder, because, the terrible gash across the ; throat, which penetrated bach to. the spinal col umn, fevered the jugular vein, and there were three deep stabs over the heart. Those were all fatal wounds, th<; surgeon said and could not pos fcibly have been self-inflicted. When Captain Shire arrived with o troop of ward detectives and found that the room door had beef) found bolted on the lr.side, he decided that Kentoonl had committed suicide. The. flre escape by hich the Kelly boy had entered could have been used by the assassin in making his escape in the darkness of the nis?bt. Two broken chairs were mute evidence of a struggle, as well as the blood spattered in all directions about the apart rr.fn T . A trunk was opened and had been earcned, as the tray with papers in it was lying on the floor with three blood stained knives which had been used in the butchery of the Armenian. Later on, after Coroner Scholer bad examined the body and declared that a foul murder had been committed, Captain Shire reluctantly abandoned his theory, and requested Inspector McClusky to aid him in the hunt for the assassin. Detective Sergeant MeCafferty was nssign«>d to co-operate with the precinct authorities-. ''j£ - FORMERLY HAD A COMPANION. Kentoor.l had re?ic!e<3 for nearly two year* in the house where he met his teatfa Across the hall lived an Italian known as P. Dilorenzo. lie is described as being a shoemaker, who also lived alone. The same flri escape coanects the apart ments of the two idpii or. the court side of the rear building. The landlord, who knew the murdered man sim ply as "the Armenian,*? told the police that Ken tooni was a stra ■ sort of a person, who was always pleading poven although he was a steady worker He said that for th<- first year the Ar menian had occupi the rooms hi had as a com panion it. fallow countryman who made candy in the apartments ai:d peddled it In tb« street.

He said also that h< knew little or nothing about the Italian rhof-maker. who always kept to himself. going to work in the morninpr ;md returning home In the ••■ rung Where Dilorenzo worked Mr. Moon could not say. but he understood that Kentooni was employed at- a weaver -..where in Four teenth-st.

Word that an Armenian had been killed was carried to those resorts and Caratf-d Slangoonin, the keeper of one "' th< restaurant*. '•.'<-<>;niized the body of ih» fOam - m as that of Kentooni. He said tliat th<- latter wu a sober and ustrirue ma:». well liked amons the Armenians fn-the colony. and_re pute'' to be a saving sort of fellow. Mr. Tektek, another rfrftf.urani proprietor, said he knew the murdered man v... well; and .that he last ytetted his place on Wednesday evening.

It is estimated that she would have won from the Constitution by about nine minutes and from the Columbia by ten minute?. An analysis of the day'B worls shows that in the light breezes that, prevailed while the yachts were sailing the firai leg of th» course, the Reliance steadily Increased her lead during the first two hours, until she had dropped the Co lumbia and the Constitution quite three miles. Then she was becalmed while the other two, favored by a breeze, almost caught the new boat when she had reached the first mark. As soon as sh? felt its influence, however, she made such a rapid sain on them as to astonish those who watched from the decks of the vessels in the accompanying fleet. For instance, in the short reach of three miles across the Sound be tween the first and second marks she gained on the Columbia 1 minute. -•" seconds, almost repeating her performance of Thursday over the same course, and in a like breeze. There had been some hope that the Constitu tion would make a decided gain on the Reliance in a breeze, but there was little to justify the belief in yesterday's race. It seemed to be the neral verdict that the Constitution has im proved. She had a very fine suit of sails — not of the Rataey make. The sails of the Reliance were hoisted before 10 o'clock, and at 10:15 she was under way. standing across the Sound in a light air from the northeast. Besides C. Oliver lselin there were on board Captain "Nat' 1 Herreshoff. WilUara Butler Duncan, jr., Newberry Thorne. "U'ood bury Kane and Dr. Monahan. The yacht wore the sair.e mainsail, clubtopsail and head sails as on Thursday. THE YACHTS UNDER WAY. The Constitution and the Columbia both cot under way from their moorings at Glen Cove at 11:10 o'clock. The former was towed out into the Sound by the steam yacht Scout. The Columbia worked her way out under sail to the starting place, off Matinicock Point. On board the Constitution were August Belmont, herman ager; R. G. Doremus, Robert Perkins and Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy. The crew wore scarlet watch car?- Those on board the Columbia wore llr Iselin's colors, red and black Edwin D. Morgan, the Columbia's manager, steered the yacht lilnmcif. assisted by Captain "Lem" Miller. The rommftt"!' boat, the Privateer, took up her station off Matinicock at 12 o'clock, a«d Foon afterward signalled that the start would be postponed until later in the day. The wind was so light and variable that it-^as 1:20 be fore the committee felt Justified in hoisting the preliminary fisna!.

Inspects Many Improvements in City Institution*. TENT COTTAGES INTEREST HIM. Th» commencement exercises of the Metropoli tan Hospital Training School for Nurses, on Blackwell's Island, yesterday, were made the occasion of an inspection by Mayor Low of all the improvements instituted by the Department of Public Charities In Its plants on the Island under the direction of Commissioner Homer Folks. Mayor Low arrived at the island in the af ternoon by th- Fifty-second-st. ferry where he was met by Commissioner Folks and the latter's secretary. Millard B. Ellison. For two hours he walked and drove in company with the com missioner ard the several superintendents and suboidinates in charge of the divisions of work of the department, from the addition of the nurses' quarters of the City Hospital Just about completed, on the southern end of the island, to the new convalescent hospital of the Metro politan ' Hospital. Just completed, on the upper end of the island, where the commencement ex ercises were held. Improvements made by Com missioner Folks at an expense of over SIOO.OOO, were shown to th? Mayor. After Inspecting: a flre escape, in the shape ef a corkscrew. Mayor Low inspected the renova tion .of the old City Hospital. Superintendent J. H. Shields, of the institution, leading the party through the wards. Mayor Low waa re ceived in all the wards with great interest by the patients who were able to take copnizance of his presence. One old Italian. Michael Coraffa, who has been in the hospital for some time with an affection of th* leg. attracted the Mayor's notice. Taking the old man's hand. Mayor Low said "l'm sorry you are ill. 'No speaka Ingr. ' said the Italian, but his eye beamed and he pressed Mr. Low's hr.nd. When he was told in Italian who his visitor was, Coraffa's eyes prew wide and he chattered in Italian, MAYOR TAKES DEEP INTEREST. Commissioner Folks Deal took Mayor Low to visit his hospital for consumptives. The renova itoTi of the old building and the addition of the outdoor tent life have been features of the ad ministration's policy. The patients, who were taking sun baths, look well for th- most part. It was Mayor Low's first visit, and he took deep interest in the whole place. Superintendent W. B. O'Rourke showed him about. The Hospital for Consumptives, opened in'con nection with the Metropolitan Hospital on Jan uary SI. 1002. wh* h has quickly become the largest hospital for consumptives in or near New-Tork, is adding to its equipment n. series of tent cottages. Three of these are already occu pied, four others are in process of construction, and still others will be erected as rapidly as possible. The tent cottage hi ar. adaptation of one devised by Dr. Holmes, of I>-:iver. It combines the maximum of ventilation •■ ith the minimum of exposure to iftc weataer. The air in the tents during the last few weeks baa been from •"» to 10 decrees lower ihan in the build ings. The patients were rather reluctant at ihe out- M( to use the tents for sleeping porpeeee, be lieving that they would be draughty aad un comfortable. They were persuaded, with some difficulty, to try it. and without aatiptlen, after a few nightH, all are so much impressed with tent life that it is with difficulty that any of them are persuaded to return to the buildingsjf. for any reason, this becomes necessary. The tents have rot been occupied for a sufficiently |«ns time to afford any tabulated statement of th» result?.

Jerome Won't Say Whether or Xot There Is an Indictment. A smoothly shaven man. dressed in a neat suit of gray, was one of the flrnt of fh)S pas sengers to descend the gangway of the Cunard steamer Campania, when she reache.l h?r pier yesterday morning, about 9 o'clock. He ha<l an easy bearing and looked the part nt a ma: of the world who had been spending f!n» winter abroad, enjoying pictures, even sitting for on« before some noted portrait painter. Ther» wit« nothing hurried about him— moved wi:h th» deliberation of one who had learned to be un concerned about trifles and to cirry crises wejl. It was Richard A. Canfleld. the gambler, en I whose house. No. 5 East Forty-foarth-st^ ■ raM was made last December, and agairwt whom it is commonly believed an Indictment was foun* by the January grand Jury. Of him District Attorney Jerome had said, after his quiet de parture for England, that he did not b<>Tiev« he would return to this country while Mr. Jerome was District Attorney. Not only has h* come back, but he has come back te» plead tr» any indictment that may h.ive been foun<ti against him. That his return had been carefully planned, kg. that there might be no unpleasant, cnartlstla features about it. was evident. He came unde? : an assumed — Albert Campbell — and no on*) on the steamer suspected that the neatly dresead man who occupied one of the fine aptl tments of; the ship, and went about so quietly, was th«- Canfleld in whom District Attorney Jerome waa so interested. It had been hia Intention to have* his attorneys here Inform Mr. Jerome of bis la*i tended return, and the name of the steamer on which he would be a passenger. On s«»conA: thought, he changed this, according to tie dlxa patches from London, fearing that Mr. Jeroma, might question his good faith and send a cocp!» of detectives to the pier to arrest him ther« pub- t licly. He decided to return as he had gone over.. He directed his attorney to meet him on thoi pier, and John Delahunty. cla attorney and friend, was there to zneet him and cSer any* advice that might be needed. From the pier h» had planned to go wherever it was necessary to go to find out If an IndlctmeriJ had been,' found against him, plead to !t If there should chance to be one, and then offer balL Apparently the District Attorney's offlc- tm not looking for him so anxiously as he had ex pected to find it. The news that he -xas oa the Campania had been published in advance of his arrival here, but for aught that transpire** there was not a detective at the pier authorized' to arrest or even directed to shadow him. A bulging eyed negro valet. Mr. Delahunty an* several newspaper men were the only ones look ing for him. He did not wait to discuss th<». situation -.vith the newspaper men. having b*^rii warned to say nothing by Delahunty. "I am going to my home ln Providence be ; said, "if they will let me." Then he drove, off with Delahunty. leav ebony fac=-d valet to attend to his *>' _ With a smile — he had smiled from t! he left :he steamer— he drove away hunty to the latter's offlce. In the mean time Mr. Jerome was spending a few minute* at his office previous to starting for Hartford, where ha safd he was to address* the Hartford Press Club, and from whenre h^ anal later to go to LakevilTe. Conn., «h< h» has a summer home, to spend Sunday. Pf fu;» going he declined to say- any; ■_- ab^ut th"? "Canfleld case." "What is the status of Hm eaee against Can field now?" he was asked. "There are no puM:c Aora* case. " replied Mr. Jerome. tatt aaoafl ;t" It has never been stated ofßrially that Can field was indicted for being connected with a gambling house at No. 9 East Forty-fourth . but at the time the indictment was found. against David Bucklin. January 23, Mr. Jeromo said among other things: • I do not believe that Canfleld win return to* this country while I am District Attorney" and,! •"We have a complete case against Richard A.J Canfleld." These remarks were Interpreted as signifyinap that ar indictment had been found against Can fleld or that there was evidence on which an in— dictment could be found. After looking over Mi mail Mr. Jerome lefai his office at tc9l o'clock to go to the Grand Cen tral Sattion. An hour or 90 later Forbes J. Hennessy. one <*s] Canflelds eeaaaal went to the District Attor ney« office and talked with Assistant District Attorney Gans about bail. About 11 o'clock Can field, accompanied by Delahunty and Alfred J. Dam bondsman for David Buckiin. arrived aT the ■iminal Courts Building. They entered and went in to see Judge McMahon. who waa li» ctessben fixing bail in canes where the amount of bail had previously been arranged. Soman time elapsed before Mr. Gans and Mr. Hennasaß"! went to Judge McMahon room. Then, no ona seemed to know whether or not there was aa. indictment out against Canfield. When Miy Gans appeared Delahunty turned to Judg- Me* Mahor. and said: -I understand, your honor, that my client haa* b*en tadlcted by the grand Jury of this county for a crime. £0 we are informed. We are not r*ady te give bail to-day. It is true that Mr. Dam came in here and has given bail in another ia « but Ido not know if he would do so in, this case. I would suggest that you parole my client in our custody until Monday, when w* will appear and give the ball desired." Mr Gaas then asked the judge if he had s«*Tst; for the indictment. . t "No." replied the Judge "What do I want or th* indictment? This is simply ctiambem, an<l there eaatd be no pleading in chambers. Tt 1 rr.u?' be don" in open court.** If your honor will wait." added Mr. Gan-*. "I wiH see if I can get the indictment. I real'r know nothing about it. as Mr. Jerome is out of town, a- •!
