Many Points in Case Recall Barrel
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-.
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
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

also that h< knew little or nothing about the

In the ••■ rung Where Dilorenzo worked Mr. Moon
could not say. but he understood that Kentooni
was employed at- a weaver -..where in Four

number of Arm^iaTi? livinc in that part o. the city
and that they frequented restaurants kept by their
rountryn at No. SO East Tw-.-nty-sixth-st.. and
Nor I"SS ana 153 East Twenty-seventh-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. He thought it
nranee that Kentooni had rr.t returned to the
r<stauram at No. 152 Ka*<t Twenty-serentb-st., be

The marb of the rooa ("iFciosed hat Kentoor.i

window. Then followed the combat in which the
man was brutaD] Blaughtered. In the killing a
carving knife, an ordinary table knif* and a three
bleded pocket knife were used. There are distinct
wounds mad- by each of the three weapons on the
corpse. The carving knife was eertamly used to

Captain Nathaniel Herreshoff, the owners of
the Reliance, Captain Charles Barr and her
crew, to say nothing of her sponsor, the New-
York Yacht Club, have every reason to feel
proud of the big sloop that they all hope will
be selected to defend the America's Cup, for
while the first meetir.gr yesterday on Long Is
land Sound between all three candidates for that
.honor, was not officially called a race, the Co
lumbia and the Constitution were both beaten
so decisively during the time that they were
equally served with a breeze that there was
no cuestion as to which would have won had the
race teen completed within the time limit— 6:3o
p. m. 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.

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.

Inspects Many Improvements in
City Institution*.
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
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
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
The patients were rather reluctant at ihe out-

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
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- •! I was just ceKed in to-dsy."
Judpc McMabon agai^ S»W h * **•'* rot wish
