"I can't tay anything about that." he said. "But if his condition is the result. « yea have said, of what occurred af t^r'his marriage, is there any reason Vby he should not recover?"

Dr. Arlitz explained that while he had made no physical examination of Charlton. he bad no doubt, from what hi had heard and from the signs that «w Plain to any physician, that Charlton had tuberculosis.

Unless the Marine Hospital surgeons at Ellis Island decide that he is not af fflicted .with trachoma, Michael Abra hams, a wealthy merchant and banker Of St. Marc, Hayti. will be unable to lea«« $10,000 in trade in this city. Mr. Abrahams came to this port yesterday from Hayti on the steamship Prins Wfllen V. of the Roy«l Dutch West India Mail Line. He is about thirty-five years old. was well dressed, and brought with him a letter of credit for jIOiOOO. His health was satisfactory in every way, but the surgeon who boarded the steamship at Quarantine suspected he had trachoma. Being an alien Mr. Abrahams was sent to Ellis island for observation. The ship's doc tor saidhe was confident thai the de tained traveller was not suffering from trachoma, but with merely a cold which had settled in his eyes. Mr Abrahams said he has come to New York every two years to make pur chases for his store in St. Marc. He was indignant over his detention, and declared that if he. were not permitted to land it .would be impossible for him to make satisfactory purchases. On the assumption that he might be prevented from landing he gave his tet ter of credit to Captain Aarents. of the Prins Willem V. with a list of the goods he wished to buy- If he is ordered de ported the skipper will art as his agent in buying some of the goods, but it » thought that the important orders will be curtailed. , . .

ONE DEAD, ONE DYING IN CHINESE SHOOTING The Four Brothers Celebration Starts with Battle in Streets of Chinatown. DIDN'T STOP FEAST. THOUGH i , After Smoke of Conflict Cleared Members Were Anxious About Feed — Police Make Arrests. One Chinaman is dead, another dying, a third wounded and seven prisoners are in the Elizabeth street station as the re sult of a pitched battle with revolvers yesterday afternoon at Mott and Pell streets, in Chinatown. The Four Brothers fared badly, as one of their members, Chu Foo, died last night at the Hudson Street Hospital, another is under arrest with a bullet wound in his thigh, while the third man shot was an innocent bystander. Sing Jin. who kept a fruit and candy stand [at Xo. 28 Pell street, three doors from Mott street, where the battle took place. The Four Brothers were to celebrate | yesterday the 2.000 th anniversary of the establishment of their society. Inci dentally they were to have as the guest of honor Chu Hen, who was acquitted a few days ago, although six disinterested white men swore they saw him shoot i Chong Fook Quen dead at Park Row and Pearl street on Sunday, April 10. Such an affair was bound to lead to trouble, so Captain Hodgins was on the watch. He has been expecting trouble ever since his failure to bring about the signing of the peace pact. Were Looking at Flags. Yesterday at 4 o'clock he was at the patrol stable, Xo. 37 Mott street, just opposite Pell street. A minute later he was standing with Sergeant John Mag ner and Patrolman Homer Willis ad miring the great red triangular flag, with green scalloped edges, which hung from the Chinese Delmonlco, at No. 24 Pell street, proclaiming that the Four Brothers were celebrating. As the three men met they turned to look at the flag, when they heard what they thought was the crackle of fireworks, coming from Pell and Mott streets, a few doors away. Swinging around to see who was set ting off firecrackers, they saw a group of eight or ten Chinese blazing away at one another at close range. The three guardians of the peace ran to the spot, the heavyweight captain leading his men to the corner. Tn the mean time John Lang. jr.. the patrol driver, who heard the firing from the stable, rushed across the street and right into the zone of fire- He grabbed Horn Hong and Yu Kom with revolvers in their hands. They dropped the guns, and he tried to get one of them, but failed until after the row was over. Captain Hodgins grabbed Leong Lung, of No. 41 Mott street, who dropped his gun and ran when he saw the police. Sergeant Magner got Wong Hong, the man who shot Little Lee through the breast on the Bowery last November and was later acquitted, while Patrol man Willis grabbed Chu Pan, with the revolver still in his hand. Rolls Downstairs with Prisoner. A bystander, named "Bill" Egan, saw Fome Chinamen running into No. 43 Mott street, throwing away their guns as they ran. He started in and got one of them. Yung Tung, pulling the China man down the stairs, taking a chance of being killed in the long roll down the stairway. Patrolman Conroy relieved Egan of his prisoner. Two ambulances were called from the Hudson Street Hospita.l, and Drs. Brown and Denton said Sing Jin could not Jive, as he was shot through the abdomen. The other man was shot back of the car and lay face downward in the gut ter, dead. Chu Pan was shot in the thigh. He was identified at the hospi tal by Sing Jin as the man who shot him. and he in turn identified the dead man as Chu Foo. thirty-two years old. a laundryman, of Auburndale, Long Isl and. It appears from what could be learned from the Chinamen about that the Four Brothers sent out pickets to see that the On Iveongs were not in a position to make, trouble. As tlie pickets tame down toward Mott street from their headquarters, at No. 14 Pell street, the On Leong Bcbuts were gliding up toward Pell from their headquarters. Nos. 14 and 1« Mott street. The two parties came together at the corner, and then the shooting began. ■ten were by no means the only things damaged in the fight. Quong Yee Wo & Co. have a vegetable and fruit store on the corner opposite where the row started, and nu less than three bullets did execution on their place of business, which is at Xo. 3S Mott street. Across Mott street, opposite Pell, is a big tene ment house building, with a tea store on the ground floor. The transom was shot through. Wing Won Chong & < "o."s grocery, at No. 84 Pell street, had a window smashed, while the glass panel of the door also was shot through, and across the way the fruit and vegetable store of Chung Lung & Co. had a win dow broken and the window frame piercVd. Bullets Strew the Streets. Ail around the hydrant at the south east corner of Mott and Pell streets were bullets of the particular pattern used in the noiseless powder shells. The many guns captured or found in gutters were of the finest pattern, but confirmed the previous report that the Chinaman had givt-n up tbe use of the .44-calibre for tong wars, and had resorted to the latest model, long MH Colt. Driver Lang was not taken much by surprise, as this is the fourth affray of the kind in whk-h he has figured, dating back from the big shooting on the Chi nese New Year's Day celebration some .ears ago.

OIAZ AGAIN PRESIDENT Only Two Per Cent of the Ballots Cast for Madero. NO DISORDERS IN NORTH Polling Carried Out Quietly in the Capital — A Few Per sonal Encounters. Mexico "City, June 26. — General Porfirio Diaz was elected President of Mexico and Ramon Corral, Vice-President, by an overwhelming majority to-day, ac cording to returns received from all over the country to-night. The opposition ticket, headed by Fran cisco I. Madero. now under arrest in San Luis Potosi. received about 2 per cent of the vote cast in Mexico City, according to an unofficial statement to-night. It is estimated that between 40.000 and 50, 000 votes were cast in the capital. The city was free from disorder of a serious nature, though at several voting places friends of the candidates running against the administration party nomi nees had personal encounters with offi cers in charge. Eight hundred electors were chosen in Mexico City, of whom only four are against the re-election of Diaz. From telegrams received from various parts of the republic a similar proportion seems to prevail throughout the country. President Diaz cast bis vote at 11 o'clock this morning. Vice-President corral cast his ballot an hour earlier. The election here passed off so quietly that only those interested in politics knew from appearances that voting was going on. The electors chosen to-day will meet next month in the Electoral College to vote on July 10 for Deputies and Sen ators; on July 11 to declare the election of a President and Vice-President, and on July 12 to name judges of the Su preme Court.

Hanington, owner of the motor boat .'.lollie, started in the morning from the Colonial Yacht Club, West 140 th street and North River, with a merry party on board. The strong east wind made her progress slow, but the party reached the Jersey shore opposite Mount St. Vincent Academy and anchored there. Everybody went a-shore and pre pared for an al fresco luncheon. Mr. Hanington went out to his boat, leaving the other members of the party ashore enjoying themselves. He Mas in .the cockpit of his boat, when suddenly a tongue of flame shot out and started burning the flooring and the rear wall of the cabin. He was startled, and tried to beat down the flames, but got his hands badly burned. When he found his position hopeless and feared an explosion of the gasolene tank, he jumped over the side into his dingy and reached the shore. Mem bers of the party and some of the camp ers spending the summer over there went out and managed to tow the launch shoreward until she grounded. Then they poured water into her in an attempt to flood out the blaze, but the addition of the water only spread the gasolene the faster, and the motor boat was burned to the water's edge. The Mollie was a U5-foot cruising cabin launch. The cause of the flre is un known. In for a Swim; Drowns.

Pease, a wealthy New York club member, in Vermont came to a tragic close to-night, when he shot himself through the head at his country home in Panton, dying in stantly.

About two years ago Mr. Pease cre ated, a stir by trying to have the south bound night train on the Rutland Rail road stop for him at Panton. his- wife having, been injured in a runaway ac cident in New York. The request was refused, and Mr. Pease then chartered a special. train, on which he hastened to New York City. At the time he stated that he wished to reach New York be fore the stock market opened the next morning. The entire affair was so mys tifying that it caused wide comment. Mr. Pease was -born in Ohio forty-two years ago. -He leaves a wife, who was Ixiuisp Burridge. and a sister, who lives in New York. George Carl Pease, for eight months of the year for several years had lived at the Hotel Leonori, fi.Td street and Madison avenue, with his wife, who re quired medical treatment most of the time.
