BRIDGE FINISHED BY NOVKMBKK 1.
The Will i i—f>SJH Bridge will be ready for
public use by about Noveml>er I. The placing
of the suspended steel work will be completed
about September 1. after which the flooring
will be laid. No streetcars could run. how
ever, until the annual payment for the use of
the bridge was decided on.
"All that we have to do after completing the
bridge Is to tear down the houses and build the
D*»lanoey-M. approach/ said Commissioner L.in
denthal yesterday, "but the city can't go out
to ask the streetcar companies lo come and
use the bridge. The Brooklyn Rapid Transit
Company or a certain Manhattan company,
either one. could transport the passengers, but
they are taking advantage of the city govern

come so unbearable that, under the pressure- of
pre- • public protest, the city will let this priv
ilege at a low price. The people would realize
this If they Stopped to think about it.
"The Brooklyn company could bring people
across the bridge, but it could not run cars on
this sid«. because it uses the overhead trolley.
The company mi this side could run its cars
Prro the bridge, but it would not lay under

J. F. Calderwood. general manager of the

that his company was waiting for the city to

Brooklyn Bridge, he declared that three months
ago the company bought the material for four
additional loops at the Manhattan end of the
bridge. These were to be placed east of the
present ones, the stairways being removed.
Some preliminary work, "yen, was done, but
Luyties Brothers, who have wine vaults under
the approach, stopped proceedings because their
property would be damaged. It is expected that
Mayor Low will take op this subject with them
to-mcrrow. It would take about two months to
complete this work, which would greatly facili
tate the unloading of the Brooklyn cars, and to
a large extent do away with the jam at the
Manhattan entrance, although it might not en

"Still." continued Mr. Calderwood. "by speed

do. we might get a few more across In an

Dr. Lorimer Proposes Electing Na

Amid a scene of wild enthusiasm, cheering and
bandclapping at a meeting last night, at the Tem
ple Beth-El, the Rev. Dr. G. C. Lorimer proposed
that a committee of twenty, composed of Jews
and Gentiles, bo elected in the United States and
oral to Russia to, wait on the Czar and protest
against the killing of fern at Kishineff. In the
name "i God and humanity.
■I propose." said Dr. Lorimer. "that we appoint

and. if possible^ see the Czar and protest against
the outrages In the name of God and humanity.
They may not be able to meet the Czar face to
fare, although I know of eminent men who. I
believe, could secure an audience. But, even if
they did not. they would necessarily get the ears
of the press all over the world, and all the great
powers will be made to understand that an organ

the Bsk«» of humanity."

MEETING AT ACADEMY.
Vaudeville Performance — W. -J.
Brewer Appeals for Protest.
A mass meeting and vaudeville performance,
the proceeds of the latter being devoted to the
relief of the Kishineff sufferers, was held last
night at the Academy of Music, a large gather
ing listening to the speakers, the chief of whom
was William J. Brewer, president of the Albert
K. Hall Company. He said, in part:
In ten sickening rays of the villains' torch,
lighted during those two awful days at Kishineff.
the p«ece Conference at The Hague, suggested by
the present Czar of Russia, seems a hollow mock
ery, and the Bible which he professes to hold as
his 'guide of faith and morals like a book of blood.
No speaker can add to the strength of the protest
this meeting sends forth to the world against those
atrocities ordained in high places. He can only be
the mouthpiece giving expression to the feelings of
sham*- and sorrow that are bursting for utterance
from your heart of hearts. The .terrible piight of
thoj"» far ••ft suffering people would still appeal to
us vvf-rc their present condition caused by the
havoc of pestilence or drouth or cyclone or other
natural phenomena, but the well of sympathy
within the heart is sounded to the very depth when
we remember that they suffer by the decree of
those who should be their protectors.
We may differ in many things, we may be of
different political faith, we may not kneel at the
tame altar of worship, but no creed of politics, no
code of ethics, no religious sentiments can keep
human hearts apart in the face of such a catas
trophe as that of Kishineff. which has brought un
speakable suffering to so many of our fellow.v
The Jews are more numerous in Russia than in
any country in the world, and strange to say that
there they' are more harshly and cruelly treated
than anywhere else on the globe. They are op
pressed 'by special taxes and limitations estab
lished by "special laws that work untold hardship
upon them. Long since have they been excluded
from Russia proper, and are still confined to over
crowded provinces, which in itself is a hardship
that we on this land of the free can but feebly
comprehend.
They are excluded from many vocations, but in
spite "of it they have prospered, and wherever they
have been brought into competition on anything
like an equal footing with others In Russia, either
in the arts, sciences or professions, they have
shown a superiority that has made them the object
-Will the sons of the Puritan turn a deaf ear to
their cry? No! Did famine stricken India call to
you in Vain? No! Then will not Kishinev's ap
peal go unheeded. Your assistance to the sufferers
will also act as a great moral force upon Russia.
The moral effect of American intervention and
sympathy is of no small moment. One of our edi
tors v,-.>if spokp when he said:
••When Cubans suffered from Spanish atrocities
the Vnited States drove Spain out of Cuba. When
Christians are massacred in Turkey the powers
ran threaten to drive the Turks out of Europe, and
if they are in earnest they can make good their
threat.
•"But when horrors worse than the Inquisition and
as awful as anything that ever emanated from the
p.-rv«»rted soul of bashibazouk are perpetrated
upon the Jews in Russia the criminals may be ex
pected to say to the world. 'What are you going to
do about it? 1 " ,_ A
It is with a sickening sense of impotence that
humanity looks at the huge. Impregnable mass of
barbarism that stretches across the Old World,
and of whose black bulk the civilized nations of
Europe form only a little fringe of light. The
methods that could bring Spaniards and Turks to
order are useless against Russia. No foreign army
can police those vast, inhospitable wastes, in which
Napoleon was engulfed.
But Russia is not proof against the moral force
of publicity. She can suppress or censor her own
newspapers, but not those of the world. She can
d<=fy the military power of the nations, but not the
contempt and detestation of mankind.
"IF CHRIST CAME TO RUSSIA."
Dr. Mac Arthur Says He Would Not Be Al
lowed to Enter the Country.
TV.c Rf-v Dr. Robert P IfacArthur prear.h.-d last
' .-cht hi <'a]var>- Baptist Church, in West Fifty
scventh-Ft.. od the subject. "If Christ Came to
Rus.-ia." He said in fart:
Mr. Stead gave us the title. "If Christ Came to
Chicago": we take its thought and apply it to
Russia. If Christ came to Russia he would find an
ignorant and illiterate peasantry. The ukase of
Alexander II in 1861 gave liberty to over forty
millions of serfs. They were emancipated on more
favorable conditions than were the negroes of the
South, but they have made far less progress in in
telligence, civilization end character than the
American negroes.
If there were a great musical convention in Rus
sia to-morrow. Beethoven and Wagner could enter.
but Meyerbeer and Mendelsohn would be rejected.
If there" had been a few years ago a convention of
statesmen. Bismarck an.i Gladstone would have
been admitted, but Disraeli would have been re
jected If there were to-day a convention of finan
ciers. J. P. Morgan John D. Rockefeller and An
drew Carnegie would be admitted, but the Roth
schilds. Seligmans and Schiffs would be rejected. If
there were a convention of American statesmen.
President Roosevelt and Governor Odell would be
admitted, but Mr. Simon, of Oregon, and our noble
fellow citizen O car S. Straus, who so ably repre
sented us as Minister to Turkey, would be rejected.
The fact that lie Is a distinguished American citizen
and was one of our ablest foreign ministers would
come for nothing simply because he was a Jew.
This is an outrageous condition r«J" things, and
it ought to lead every American citizen to cry out
against its injustice. But we co a step further: If
the Apostles, Peter James and John, came to
Russia, notwithstanding their honors in the Church
of God. all three would be rejected simply because
they were Jews. Is a nation guilty of such racial
prejudice worthy to be called Christian? Ought a
nation mocked by such racial bigotry to have recog
nition among the first prc-at nations of earth? By
what right does Russia put such contempt on
American citizens? Ought not America to lift up
her voice in even more emphatic protest than that
of President Arthur. President Cleveland and the
various Secretaries of State? But I go a step fur
ther: If Jesus Christ came to Russia He could not
enter Russia Russian officials would question Him
as to His racial affinity, and they would close the
doors of Russia in the face of Jesus Christ, the
rounder of the religion they profess to honor.
Jesus Christ was .i Hebrew cf Hebrews. The regal
blood of the royal ra?» was in His veins. Russia
will have to answer at the bar of civilization, at
th» bar of Christianity, at the bar of humanity
and at the bar of divinity. because she closes her
doors in the face of Jesus Christ and cf the Jews

Woman Who Informs Station Tries
Suicide.
Patrolman John McGovern. of the Grant-st
station. Brooklyn, while pursuing ;> supposed
thief up Malb<.ne-st., from Flatbush-ave.. early
yesterday, was shot and probably mortally
wounded. Further incident was added to the
tragedy in the afternoon when a woman, "ho,
hearing the shots of the fugitive in the morning,
had gone and reported the affair at the station

life in a vacant lot near by. Both the police

currences.

Fenimore-st.. Brooklyn. He was standing in
Flatbush-ave. opposite Malbone-st.. at 4 ft: m..
when he saw a man acting In a suspicious man
ner near the automobile depot where the
Brighton Beach trolley cars run down into the
cut. The stranger's trousers' pocket was bulg
ing, as if a good sized package had been thrust
into it. Walking quietly up to the man. Mc-
Govern was just about to speak to him. when
the stranger jumped back and pulled a pistol.
He fired one shot at the policeman, which went
wild, and then started to run up Malbone-st.
At thf end of one hundred yards McGovern
was rapidly closing in on the fugitive, when the
latter stopped and fired again. The bullet pene
trated McGovern's left hand, preventing him
from pulling his revolver, as he was left handed.
The weapon in his left rear pocket was found
covered with blood, showing that he had tried
to get the weapon and had failed.
As the running man turned into Washington
ave. he stopped and fired again. This shot
struck the policeman in the lungs, just above
the heart. In spite of this wound, he continued
to pursue the fugitive for a hundred yards until,
faint from loss of blood, he dropped in front of
the Consumers' Park Brewery. His assailant,
of course, escaped.
WOMAN TELLS OF TRAGEDY.
The first intimation that McGovern was In
trouble was received by the sergeant at the
desk in tfie> police station when Miss Earl, al
ready mentioned, came In about 4:15 o'clock and
said that she had seen a policeman chasing a
man up Malbone-st.. and had heard some shoot
ing. As the policeman did not return she feared
he had been hurt. A sergeant and two men
were sent out and found McGovern uncon
scious where he had fallen. An ambulance was
called from the Kings County Hospital, but.
meanwhile. McGovern revived and expressed a
desire to go to St. Mary's Hospital where one
of his sisters is a nurse. The patrol wagon was
called and he was taken there. The doctors
do not believe he can live.
Later. Coroner Flaherty got the policeman's
ante-mortem statement in which he told the
circumstances of the shooting and described his
assailant.
The story of McGoyern's encounter spread
rapidly through the Police Department, and the
unanimous expression of opinion was that the
tragedy would not have occurred if he had hed a
nightstick. Two weeks ago Police Commissioner
Greene ordered that the men should not ; n
the future carry the nightsticks, which they
had carried as protection against desperate
night prowlers, except on special occasions. Mc-
Govern himself says that if he had had his
stick he could have knocked the revolver out of
the man's hand when it was first drawn and
could have made the man a prisoner.
About noon K. R- Worthinsrton. of No. 18.>
Linden-aye.. reported that It the night his
house had been entered and a dozen silver forks
in a box had been carried away.
The police believe that the man who shot Mc-
Govern may have been the Worthington burg
lar and that it was the box of forks in his
pocket that had attracted the policeman's at
tention.
After Miss Earl had reported the shooting at
the Grant-st. station, she was closely questioned.
The police became convinced that she knew
nothing more than she had told. She then dis
appeared. At 1 p. m. a boy reported that a wom
an was sick in a lot near the station. She was
found unconscious, with an empty laudanum
bottle by her side. Two policemen carried her
into the station house, where she was recog
nized as Miss Earl. She said that she had taken
the poison because she was despondent.
GREENE JUST MISSES SEEING FIGHT.
He and Woodbury Visit North Beach-
Former Congratulates Captain.
police Commissioner Greene, Street Cleaning
Commissioner Woodbury. Mr. Pryor. of Flushing,
and Sergeant Burk. of Commissioner Greene's
staff, in company with Captain Darcy, the pre
cinct's commander, made a tour of North Beach
yesterday. The commissioners reached the beach
on tha Patrol, which landed at the Grand pier.
Captain Darey was In waiting, and all visited
many places on the beach.
In one place the captain's attention was called
to what appeared to be a waiter serving drinks
without sandwiches. The captain Questioned the
waiter, who declared it was only the second round
and that the man had eaten the sandwiches which
he bought with the first round. He advanced the
argument that it was unlikely he would take
chances with a police captain and the head of the
department looking on. The Commissioner later
congratulated the captain on the order maintained
and the apparent general observance of the law.
Had the. Commissioner and his party wait«d a
little longer they might have seen the captain and
his men mix vii in a fight. An organization known
as The Wolfs, of Harlem, had an outing at the
beach ' and at the Dewey ran into the Rough
Riders of Ravenswood, with the result that there
was a' brief but warm argument with fists. The
appearance of the police and their vigorous action
cut the affair rather short.
