Insane Youth ' Stabs Salesman—
Victim May Die.

William C. Pearson, a travelling salesman,
was stabbed in the back while walking- In 23d
street, near Seventh avenue, shortly after 8 a. m.
yesterday by John Karle, a homeless youth, who.
physicians - : say. was suffering from dementia
superinduced by acute hunger.
Earle was . starving, according to his own j
story, when he struck . down Pearson, whom he
bad -never seen before, intending to rob him. He
was taken from the Tenderloin police station to
the Jefferson Market police court, and committed
to BeAevue Hospital for five days to be ex
amined as to his sanity. .
Mr. Pearson left the Marlborouch Hotel early
and started to walk to the West 23d street ferry.
Near Seventh avenue Earle ran up behind Pear
son and plunged a fruit knife, with a blade
nearly six Inches long into Pearson's back near
the heart. . ; .;
Pearson sank to the sidewalk without uttering
a sound. Earle bent over his victim and started
to rifle his pockets, when a dozen men ran out
of a hotel near the corner and started for the
assailant. When Earle saw the men coming he
turned and ran east in 23d street, but was soon
captured by Patrolman Maloney. of the West
30th street station. ■
The young prisoner, weak from exhaustion,
his eyes bulging out of his head, laughed as he
handed the knife to Maloney and said:
"Here** what's left of It."
A charge of felonious assault was preferred
against Earle. and later the prisoner was ar
raigned before Magistrate Flnellte, in the Jef
ferson Market police court.
Pearson is in a serious condition in the New
York Hospital.
In reply to questions put to him by his coun
sel. Michael O'Sulllvan, Earle said:
I made up my mind to kill some one and rob
him. I was hungry. I had eaten nothing since
; Friday night. Yesterday I stole a fruit knife
from a pushcart in Park Row. and a few min
utes before this man came along I made up my
mind to kill some one and rob him. This man
was the first to come along, and I went for him.
Says He Saw White with Mrs. Thaw
Just Before Shooting.
The defence In the case against Harry Ken
dall Thaw, It was learned yesterday, will try
to prove that Evelyn Nesbit Thaw had met and
been in the company of Stanford White since
her marriage to Thaw. The witness by whom
the defence hopes to prove this is Joseph V.
Jordan, at present the manager of the Hotel
Indian River, at Rockledge, Fla. Mr. Jordan
was th« treasurer of the "Wild Rose" company
in which Evelyn Nesbit had a. part, and dis
charged her while the show was "on the road"
for alleged insubordination. Some weeks ago
he appeared before Assistant District Attorney
Garvan, having been subpoenaed, in company
with James Lederer, who was the manager of
the "Wild Rose" company.
Mr. Jordan refused to say anything to Mr.
Garvan, telling him that he would only testify
when forced to do so by a grand Jury subpoena.
The writ of prohibition secured by the defence,
however, prevented this action, and Mr. Jordan's
evidence was not secured.
Mr. Jordan, it is understood, will swear that
he has seen White and Mrs. Thaw together
within about a week of the shooting.
"I came up from Indian River about three
weeks before the tragedy." Mr. Jordan said. "1
had been here more than a week, and it was
about a week before the shooting that I saw
them together. I had walked from the East Side
toward Broadway and had just passed the
Martha Washington Hotel, in 2flth street, when

Pittsburg Story of Special Privileges Denied
by Warden Flynn.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Pittsburgh Aug. 5. — Paul McDonald, who was
brought here a prisoner from New York, spent
thirteen days in the Tombs prison, and tells a
remarkable tale of how Harry K. Thaw spends
i his time. He knew Thaw, he says, before he
met him In prison. He says Thaw spends $150
a day, tips the guards lavishly and enjoys priv
ileges not permitted to the other prisoners. Mc-
Donald says Thaw curses his mother and his
wife, and that his profanity shocks his neigh
bors in the cells, and closes his story by inti
mating that young Mrs. Thaw has special priv- :
When Warden Flynn saw the above dispatch
in the Tombs last night he said it was the
"rottenest kind of rot"; that any person familiar
with the Tombs could stamp it as a lie.
"We had a man here by that name," he said.
"He was held here for extradition from July 18
to 31. He was far removed from Thaw. I re
call now that McDonald was in a cell on the
Kirn street side, and Thaw is on the Centre
street side. They were a different variety of
prisoners, and consequently not even on the
same tier. That fact alone shows that Mc-
Donald was 'faking' if he said such things. 1
doubt whether he ever knew Thaw personally. !
Again: Thaw is the only prisoner we have who
refuses to take the usual walk in the yard, so
McDonald could not have met him there. 11l do

Fireman, on Celtic a Suicide at Sea Clyde
Fitch Brings New Play. ,
Owing to a heavy fog, three of the four big
liners which docked yesterday were held in the
lower bay for several hours yesterday morning.
The Umbrla, the Columbia and the Celtic w«m
in port shortly after midnight on Saturday, but
did not venture up the bay until the fog lifted.
It was almost noon when some of them reached
their piers. La Gascogne docked last night.
The Celtic ran into heavy seas when she was
a few days out. On August 4J. Invood, a fire
man, caused some excitement by throwing him
self overboard. He was carried away on tha
heavy w?a before a boat was lowered. Nobody
aboard could assign any motive for his action.
Clyde Fitch came back on the Celtic from an
tight months' automobile tour abroad. He j
brought a new play, "The Truth," with him,
which will be produced this season. Speaking
of the stage abroad, Mr. Fitch said:
"There are several successes in London, chief
of which is 'Raffles.' Ther« are several good
■hows in Paris which are drawing good houses,
but in Germany, especially Berlin, there are no
plays which are particularly successful."

Denies That He Solicited Campaign
Funds from Civil Employes.
Albany. Aug. Harry H. ■ Bender. State Fiscal
Supervisor, has fifed his answer to the report of
the State Civil Service Commission In the matter
of the alleged violation In. the Department of State
Charities of Section 24 of the Civil Service law.
prohibiting the soliciting of campaign funds. The
report, in part, follows:
To the Governor:
The undersigned, as Fiscal Supervisor of State
Charities, respecting the charges contained In the
report of th» State Civil Service Commission, pur
suant to your notification of July 21. ISO 3, respect
fully states, shows and answers as follows:
Flint— report la a combination of statements.
Inferences, conclusions and arguments concerning
the evidence and the law applicable thereto accom
panied by the exhibits containing the complaint
upon which the Investigation before the Civil Ser
vice Commission was instituted, and the evidence
taken before the commission; And as it is Insisted
that many of the statements and conclusions drawn
by the commission are not supported by the evi
dence and that the summary is not complete, this
respondent respectfully requests that the Governor
Should refer to and consider the evidence itself
rather that the summary or abstract thereof con
tained In the report. ' *
Second— respondent further answering such
charges, denies that any evidence was produced
before the commission which tended to show that
he had any knowledge of political contributions
solicited or received by Herbert F. Prescott in the
office of the fiscal supervisor, or that he himself
had received a political contribution from a subor
dinate. George W. Hohbs. chief clerk in the office',
within the meaning of or contrary to the Civil
Service law, and he denies the charge that he did
receive any contribution from Mr. Hobbs in the
fiscal supervisor's office or elsewhere, In violation
of any provision of the law.
Third— respondent affirms that the testimony
given by the interested witness. Doty, and by his
son, /on the one hand, is not entitled to as much
weight as the testimony of the witnesses Thompson
and L'Hommedleu on the other.
Fourth— respondent also denies that he ever
exercised any official influence, directly or indirect
ly, affirmatively or negatively, to induce political
or campaign contributions in his department or
elsewhere, or that he did not use his official' in
fluence and authority to prevent violations of the
law, or that he had been Informed or had any
knowledge prior to the institution of the investiga
tion by the Civil Service Commission that Mr.
Prescott had had any of the interviews or made
any of the requests for money as political con
tributions of any of the clerks or subordinates in
his department referred to in the testimony of the i
witnesses, and he specifically denies' the truth of
the testimony of Mr. Doty to the effect that he.
Doty, could hot pay the amount asked, or that he
had any such conversation with Doty as testified
to by him.
Fifth— respondent further says that no
notice or warning against political assessments by
Governor Odell was received at his department dur
ing the fall of I£<M; and that when such notice was
received from the present Governor it was. at the
personal direction of the respondent, conspicuously
posted in the genera! office of his department,
where none of the employes could fail to see It.
Sixth— respondent also denies that at the
time when he sent the letter to the witness Way
referred to in the report he (Mr. Way) held the
office of or was acting as harbor master of or at the
City of Albany.
Seventh— respondent also denies that there is
any evidence to sustain the suspicion, surmise, in
ference or conjecture of the commission, stated as
a charge In the report that he, "Mr. Bender and I
Mr. Prescott. acting with a common purpose and
understanding," or otherwise, "sat at the receipt of
custom for the collection of political contributions
from the employes In the office"; and he emphati
cally denies the allegation or charge.
Eighth— This respondent has hereinbefore, after
a careful examination of the report, endeavored to
separate and specifically deny each and every
charge, allegation or statement of fact constituting
or tending to constitute a breach, violation or disre
gard of the Civil Service law on his part.
Ninth— Finally. in closing this part of the answer
the respondent respectfully begs leave to call the
Governor's attention to and to point out exactly
what he has been charged with and found guilty of
by the commission.
1. He has been charged with and found guilty of
receiving for transmission at the request of the
donor and of transmitting a certain unsolicited and,
voluntary contribution for political purposes.
In answer he admits that one of his subordi
nates handed to him checks and requested him to
transmit them to the treasurer of the State Com
mittee as a political contribution, but denies that
what he did in this respect was prohibited by or
In any way a violation of the Civil Service or any
other law.
2. He Is charged with and held responsible
for certain alleged acts of one of his subordinates
which were not brought to his knowledge.
In answer he says that whether he can or should
be held responsible or accountable (were the fact
true) is. as advised by counsel, a matter of law
which is hereafter considered, but he submits that
in Justice and fair play he ought not to be held
accountable or responsible.
3. He is charged with and found guilty of
not appearing personally before the commission
and giving testimony in his own behalf.
In answer he says that in this regard he acted
on his own opinion, judgment and belief as well as
that of his counsel. He believed then and was so
advised that no violation of law on his part had
been shown or proven against him, and that there
was no reason why he should go upon the stand
in the absence of any case against him. or to pro
claim or prove his innocence of some undefined
and wholly unproved and unsubstantiated charge or
charges. He is still so advised and still so be
lieves, and he says that in any event, under our
system of Jurisprudence, his silence or failing to
take the stand in his own defence ought not to be
held or taken against him. or as an admission on
his part, or as in any way tending to support or
prove any charge against him. But in this pro
ceeding before the Governor he now meets and
answers in person all the charges and Insinuations
made, against him.
Eleventh— This respondent, in * conclusion, desires
to state in all frankness and sincerity that while
he has endeavored to perform his official duties
strictly in accordance with his understanding of
the provisions of the Civil Service law and of all
other laws directly or Indirectly appertaining to
his office, he had not in fact read section twenty
four of the Civil Service '.aw prior to the institu
tion of the investigation before the commission, and
did not know that there was a statutory provision
referring to the mere receipt of a political contribu
tion in his office or department.
Wherefore, this respondent submits and respect
fully insists that there is no ground shown in tho
evidence for his removal from office, and that the
application for his removal should therefore be
denied and this proceeding dismissed.

The government has issued instructions that

A fleet of trawlers happened to be only about
one hundred yards away when the Sirio struck.
The skippers of these boats went at once to the
rescue, thereby jeopardising the safety of their
own vessels. The survivors of the Sirio unite in
praising the conduct of the captains of the trawl

former steamed close to the side of the sinking
ship and took off three hundred persons. The
crew of this trawler endeavored to sheer off.
fearln* that their boat would be sunk, where
upon the captain drew his revolver, levelled it at
his men and shouted:
As lons as it Is possible to take off another
passenger we will not move!
. The deck of the Joven Miguel became so
crowded with the terror stricken survivors that
the skipper was obliged, in order to prevent his
boat from capsizing. Co force them down into
the hold at the point of his revolver. ,-;
The Vicenta Llcano saved two hundred per
sons and an old fisherman, sailing a dingy,
alone saved twelve. A rollcall taken on shore
shows that 886 persons from the Sirlo are miss
ing, but it is believed that a few were token on
board French and German steamers, which con
tinued their voyage after the Sirio sank.
It is said that a large number of the first and
second cabin passengers were drowned, their
cabins being the first to go under water. .
Many heartrending incidents are related. A
group of six children clambered into the shrouds
of the Sirio while their mothers were taken oft
by one of the trawlers. The Slrlo sank before
the children could be rescued. The frantic
mothers watched their children as they were
engulfed. The children uttered piercing shrieks
as they were drawn under the waves. It was
with difficulty that the women were restrained
from jumping into the sea. A monk among the
passengers was drowned while kneeling on deck.
The Austrian consul at Rio Janeiro Jumped
into the sea wearing a lifebelt. He noticed a
woman and child near him on the point of going
down. He gave up his belt to them and tried to
swim ashore. He was almost exhausted when
rescued by a fishing vessel.
Among the drowned is the prior of the Bene
dictine Order, with headnuarters in London. All
the stokers went down with the ship. They
were unable to reach the deck in time to save
A large number of the survivors desire to
return home, and insist on travelling by land.
Alicante. Spain. Aug. The captain of the
French steamer Marie Louise, which has arrived
here from Cartagena, relates having witnessed
the foundering of the Sirio from a point close to
that vessel. He says he was remarking to his
mate upon the dangerous course the Birlo was
taking when the Italian steamer, going ahead at
full speed, suddenly stopped and her bow was
seen to lift. The Marie Louise changed her
course and went toward the Sirio. ?♦.- V :
There was a loud explosion as the boilers of
the Sirlo burst. Shortly after this dead bodies
began to float by the French steamer, and those
on board could hear the shrieks of the drowning
people. The Marie Louise launched a boat and
picked up twenty-five persons, who were sent
to Hormigas Island. The steamer herself res
cued twenty-nine persons more and brought
them here.
The Slrlo was an iron vessel of 4,141 tons and 5.01?
horsepower. She was built at Glasgow in 1883. and
was owned by the Navigasione Ttaljana, of Genoa.
She sailed from Genoa on August 2.
Brutal Scenes Reported After the
Steamer Struck.
London. Aug. The Madrid correspondent of
"The Daily Telegraph" describes the Sirio dis
aster as one of the worst on record. The Italian
emigrants, with knives in their hands and with
out regard for the women or children, fought
with 'the greatest brutality for the possession of
life buoys and boats. Many were killed or
wounded, including several members of the
crew who were attacked by emigrants.
When the captain saw the vessel was lost, and
that the emigrants had captured the boats, he
committed suicide by shooting with a revolver.
The other officers then lost their heads, and
there was nobody to direct the work of rescue.
Eyewitnesses give awful pictures of the
brutal panic on board. For half an hour the
emigrants were masters of the situation,
completely overcame the crew by sheer for;.-* of
numbers, and this in spite of the efforts of tha
officers, who tried to save the women and chil
dren first.
One report even says, the correspondent con
tinues, that a group of emigrants approached
one of the ship's boats, which already was full
and which was about to be launched, and dis
lodged the people, killing several with their
knives. Just as they were about to occupy the
boat themselves another body of armed emi
grants came up. and a fierce fight for possession
of the lifeboat followed.
Many of the survivors brought ashore were
seriously wounded. Some of the Injured subse
quently died.
It Is reported that the Spanish singer Lola
Mllanes was among the drowned.
Duplexing Equipment for Alaskan Cable
, Made Quickly and Cheaply.
Washington, Aug. The signal corps head
quarters in this city has been advised that the
cable duplexing apparatus sent to Seattle for
use on the Alaskan cable has been a complete
success. As soon as the cable ship Burnslde
completes its work of laying cables between the
forts defending the entrance to Puget Sound,
which piobably will be in about a week, it will
go to Alaska and ' install duplexing equipment
at the Alaskan end, thus giving the Alaskan
cable, which is now overtaxed, twice the capac
ity it has at present.
The duplexing equipment for use on the
Alaskan cable is the first ever manufactured In
this country, and was made in the signal corps
shops in Washington at a cost that is &.'2,4mhi
less than manufacturers offered, to make it for.
It was also made In several months' less time
than manufacturers would contract to make it
