Thepeople are anxious to learn the contenta ef the papers and letters which Almy. before (nrrtndering. Intrusted to the keeping of John alter, the head farmer for the Mate irricnlturil College. Before Mr. Fuller hid the opportunity to open the pack ate Solicitor Mitchell made an arrange neat with htm whereby, for the present, at ieut, none of the contents of tbe mauuscrlpt will b. made public.

In the belief that escape iu tbe end wonld be impossible for him, and that ta a last resort, be would take bis own life rather than surrender. Almy positively averted that In tbe package will be found let ters written to him by Christie Warden, and that tbry would prove that Christie enter tained a much stronger sentiment for him tbaa the publlo here have been willing to belle re. ,lf Almy tells tbe truth those letters will rliy an Important part In the coming trial, fanny Warden, who enrteavored no brave- r to rh'eM ber sister from barm on thenlchtof tbe murder, ns well as nil the other Bttnberxof lbs Warden family, persistently !' otain that no letters were sent by Christie to Aim r that contained any expansions re tarding Almy excepting those of friendship etdeiteem.

Outealt ot New Bruns wlek, desorted her husband, two children, and home and disappeared. She Is young, pretty, vivacious, and fundot society. Her husband Is of nulst temperament, and the couple oould not agree. Outealt became exeeedtngly Jeal ous in consequence of tbe attention paid his wife by other men. One day Mrs. Outealt went away, leaving nothing for her husband to remember hsr by exoept the ohlldren and a note In which she told him she would never return. For months Outealt soarohed high and low tor his runaway wife. Kone ot her friends among New Brunswick men was missing, so be eonoludsd sho had not eloped. Meantime, as It now transpires. Mrs. Outealt bad ssttlad In Hobokeo. and cot ac quainted with many men there. Her only in ttmata woman friend was Miss Kittle Wright ot 11G Feoond street Sbe gave Miss Wright her entire confidence. Miss Wright bad a friend named Anderson. Aftor Anaerson end Mrs. Outealt became acquainted Miss Wright was somewhat neglected. She endured this as long as a woman could be expected to en dure It and then she took revenge. Mr. Out cnlt was surprised to rscelve this letter about ten days ago: " My Dkar Sir: I am about to Inform you of what your wife Is doing In Hnboken. I hope you will not bo hurt wben 1 tell yon what I am Joingto any. Your wife Is stopping at Mr. ouls Wright's.. house.

" I knew Joe ever since I was a baby, hut I do not know yon. Bhe runs you down the worst way aud says she is not afraid of von. If you want to know any more I will tell roil all I know. It you do not believe me about J oo. you mav oome and watch the house and see for yourself. I would not write to you only I thought von ought to kuow about your rlfewhen she Is that way with another man. , will close my letter hoping that I have not hurt your feelings. If I have. 1 am sorry. So good-by. iromyour loving friend. " Miss Katk Wkioht. " No. IIS Second street. Hoboken. N. J." Mr. Outealt, who had almost abandoned all expectation ot seeing his wife again, went to Hoboken and verified Miss Wright's state ment. Then he procured warrants from Justice bsymour for tbs arrest of his wife and Ander son. Mrs. Outealt was foun't and arrested, hut Anderson had suddenly disappeared. Miss Wright Is also out of town. Her friends say she bus gone to the Atiantlo Highlands to remain a few days. The Ixiuls Wright referred to in tbe letter Is Miss Wright's atepfatber. Mrs. Outealt Is In tbe county jail, but It Is thought she will not remain tbere long, as a number of prominent Hokoken men. including several influential politicians, have taken an Interest In nor case.

Danlelion did not superintend the work ot cleonlpg the streets by the wash ing process last night as was expected. The fair Secretary of the Btreet Cleaning Aid Association failed to appear upon tbe scene at all. Everybody else who was expected was there. Tbe Btreet chosen for tbe experiment was Hester, from the Bowery to Division street. Late ln the afternoon eight machine sweepers went tbrougn the street, tbe dirtiest In tbe city, followed by fifteen men with hsnd brooms. Wben they got through Hester street was cleaner thnn It waa ever known to be before. In the evening Assistant Chief Engineer Iiller of tbe Fire Department arrived with 800 feet of hoso. Two lines were laid, one at either end of the street. Tbe city was well represented. Tbere were General Inspector William Klein. Inspector Lawrence . MoArdle, Engineer Martin J, Brown, and Foreman Thomas Little of tbe Board of Publlo Works; and Deputy Commis sioner Dalton and Superintendent Bobbins ot the Mreet Cleaning Department Commis sioner Beattle dropped around ln tbe course ot the evening. At H o'olock the water was turned on and tbe flushing was begun. This consisted ot turning nttream of swift-iunnlng water upon every Inch of the paved street, making it ery clean. Iron sieves, which had beon placed around the catch ba-lns or the sewer, prevented the dirt from washing down tbere. All the denlrens of Hester street turned out to see the sight Tbere were thousands on tbe Mreet between Division and the Bowery. Nearly all ot them were children. Tbene youngstere amused themselvee by challenging tbe men who held tbe nozzles ot ihe lines of hose to turn tbe water upon them. This tho men ocoslonally did. drenching the youngsters to tbolr great delight- One old resident of the street lust around tbe corner fiom the Bowery was so enthusla-tic oer the work that he hang Japanese lanterns from tbe windows of bis house. 'J be work of flushing tbe street was long and tedious. It took nn hour to wash the llrst block. After this the men got tbe bang of the thlnz better and tbe work progressed more rapidly. It wasn't until about a o'clock this morning, however, that tbe entire street had been flushed. It will be Inspected to-day. The general opinion among the representatives of the clty'e various departments, who were present was that it was not practicable to put the system in general operation in New York.

The examination In the ease ot John Allen, alias David Harmon, alias Patrick O'Brien, sllas "Teddy tbe Pig," tbe green goods oper ator, who Is aeeustd of buncoing Innocent George Williams ot ZInolte, Mo., out ot $365 on Tuesday last wss hsld yesterday bofore Justice DIvver, at tbe Tombs. Williams was one of asyndloateof WetUrn miners, with whom Allen and some pals had been In correspondence for some time. They raised 1265 among them and sent Williams to this olty to purchase counterfeit money with It Williams got here about a week ago and put up at the Aator House. By appointment be met Allen at the Tolnt View Hotel, at 110th street and Lenox avenue, on tbe night of his arrival. Allen showod him several paokagea ot good money and a dozen psokages ot greenish paper enclosed by rubber bands, on tho front and back of were several genuine notes. Tbe greon goods man packed tbe bundlo ot green paper In a valise right under Williams's eyes, and. after taking the syndicate's capital, accompanied Williams to an express office at Fllty-slxtb street and Sixth avenue, where the bag was left to be forwarded lo Zlnclle. Two newspaper men saw Williams In Allen's company and told him ha had probably been tricked. The result was that an hour later Detectives Von Qerlchtsn and Clark arrested Allen and lockod blm np at headquarters. Yesterday afternoon, when the case came np for examination. Lawyer John Btaeom appeared for Allen and Assistant District Attorney Wauhone Lynn for the peo ple. Since his arrest Allen has been out on ball. Williams has been In the House ot De tention, Williams was tbe only witness called. He stood to tbe right ot the Justice, and Lawyer Btaeom to the left Mr. Lynn stood behind and a little to tbe left of Williams, and tbe prisoner just behind blm. "Do you see Harmon, the man who took yonr money. In oourt here? Is that he?" asked Mr. Lynn, pointing to the.prlsoner. , Immediately Lawyer.Stacom had an attack ot nervousness, and bis bead wsgged from side to side. Williams glanced nervously at the prisoner, then at the lawyer, and then at the Justice. "It looks like hlra"' he finally replied: "I think it Is." "Bat isn't this the man you Identified at Police Headquarters as the man who took your money and then gave yon a satchel which you fupposed contained tS.OOU In eonnterfelt bills ? sn't this tbe man who accompanied you to tbo express officer" . .... 'rrmsure. I don't know. I'm not sure." fal tered Williams, looking Inquiringly at Lawyer Btnoom. Here the prisoner worked around beside the witness and gave blm a klok. .. "This is not the man." said Williams, promptly, his face elearlng up. Air. Lynn went on asking questions and try ing to establish Allan's Identity. During the examination Counsellor Stacom's hsad kept going up and down and from side to Bide, and the nervous affection In tbe prisoner's leg be came so severe several times that he was obliged to kick the witness's leg. Once, by accident, he kioked Mr. Lynn, and the latter, actually imagining that the nudge had somo special significance in it, placed his band on the prisoner's chest and gave him a shove that sent him about three yards away. "Now yon keep there," he said, "and don't gst any nearer this witness." Then bawyer Staoom started In to oroes sxamine Williams. After eacb question he seemed to have an attack of nervousness, and his head would either wag from side to side or go up and down. Tbe witness watched blm eJoselv. An occasional klejk from tbe prisoner often seemed to hasten Wllllsms's memory. Twice during tbe cross-examination Allen kicked Mr. Lynn by mlstake.and finally tbe latter lout pis temper and eboved Allen rather forcibly against the railing. "Now you keep tbere." he said. " Don't you move an Inch nearer this prisoner, and fdon't attempt to kick or nudge him again. This thing has gone too far. This is the third time you have kicked me by mistake." At this point it ssemed to occur to Justice Dlvrer that something wrong was going on. Jumping up out of bis chair, tie exclaimed: "Uentlemen, this examination will bo con tinued la tbe private room ln the rear. This court is entitled to some respect, and I'll have you understand it. Ortlcers. allow nobody but me principals ana wirnesses in tne case to go into tbe private room." Justice Dlvvere orders were obsysd. This time Allen was placed away oer In a corner ot the room, while tbe witness stood at the bar. Lawyer Btaeom and Mr. Lynn sat facing each other over a writing table. " Will you swear that this Is the man who took your money?" asked Mr. Btaeom. No sooner hsd the question left his lips than the nervous trouble came up again and his nead wagged from right to lett. The nervousness in Allen's leg seemed to have mounted a pec, for while the leg lay perfectly still, his hend was wagging In exact imitation of Lawyer Stacom's, " No. I will not," replied tbe witness, after gazlpg for a time at the wagging heads. "Now. Mr. Willlame." sold Mr, Lynn. "I wont you to walk all around this room nnd look each person carefully In tbe face. If un sse the man tbat yon gave your 2U5 to. po nt Williams walked slowly along nntll he cot In front or the prisoner. Then lie stopped shot t and tho silence that eneued receive painful. Mr. Stacom's head wagged to and fro. so nerv ous he became, but Allan a hsad was motion lss. Slowly but surely his nervous og rose to tbe level of Mr. Williams's sbin. Tnen it softly came in contact with that portion of tbe witness's leg. Williams resumed bis march around Ihe room and presently etood onco more where ho hsd started from. " Well, did you see him i" aked Mr. Lynn. " I don't know. I'm not sure. I can't tell," replied tbe witness. A groan of relief came from Allen s oorner and Lawyer Stacom's nervousness left blm. Jumping to his feet be moved for a dismissal on the ground that the oomplalnant bad failed to Identify bis client as the man who baa swindled him. Mr. Lynn said be would like u further examination, and Justice DIvver con sented to kIvo nlm one, despite tbe protests of Lawyer Stacom. it was sst down for Tuesday noxtnt 2 o'clock. As he lelt the court room Mr. Lynn said to a friend: " Did you ever bear or sss such outragsous proceedings. After I get through with Mr. Allen I'll have Williams up as a prisoner for handling green goods. If the detectives won't make tbe complaint I will," Williams was sent back to the House ot Detention, VBATU OV EMILY DABBAQU.

When the steamship Obdam of tbe Nether lands line nrrivod hero yesterday from Hot tordam sho brought the news of a mutiny which ocaurred on board on her lat outward trip. Tho Obdam sailed from hero on July 13 with 300 passengers on board. Her firemen and stokers wsro all non-union men who had beenshlpped on the previous trip from Hotter dam. Tho strikes at tho English ports have spiead lately to the Continent and all of the Obtlam's old firemen had struck. The now men who were taken on to fill tbelr places worked without complaint on the westward trip, but on this return trip thoy bogan to show signs ot rebellion. On tbe evening of July 20 they stoppod work In n body without giving the slightest warning of their Intention. They didn't ask for an In crease ot wagoe. Capt Bakker ordsrsd them back to work, but they relusod to obey. The fires died out and the ship was left to drift Capt Bakker then resolved I o get them back to tbelr duties at any ha7ard. He went down to the lower deck amidships, where tbe fire men, about twonty in all, hail gathered. A parley with the men only brought out threats against bis life, lie says. 1'eter Duzen, the leader of the gang,. started for hlra, and .lie drew his revolver and shot the man through the abdomen. Duzen sank with a groan to the dock, and the other tlremsn shrank back cowed at tbe ) sight The noise of the pistol's report brought be other officers to Capt. Bakker's support ustss the mutineers, it is said, were prepar ing for another rush unon him. A number of the passengers who were provided with weap ons gathered around tbs Captain, too. and the firemen were finally drlvon Deck to tbelr quarters. Soon after this they went to work again, and the ship was put on hsr course. Tbsre wits a panto among the women passen gers while these lively scenes were being en acted. Capt Bakker was praised for bravery by the passengers. Duzen. the wounded fireman, died two days after the occurrence, and was burled at sea. iTbe firemen, with their leader gone, gave no nrtber trouble. Tbe Obdam touched at Bou ogne. and from there the news of what had lapDened was telegraphed on to Rotterdam. Capt Bakker was arreted on his arrival at tbe latter port He was allowed to go on his own reoognlzsnce, after testimony was taken, and' the formal trla.l.whteh will be held next month, will, it Is ssld. result In his exoneration. At least half of tbe firemen who mutinied shipped again on ths Obdam whsn sbe left Rotterdam for her last trln. All the responsibility for the mutiny, the officers of tbe ship ssy, rested on Duzen, and no effort was made to punish the others. AT int! LICK OBSEBVATOBY.

For example ui on the top of one of tho mountains of the moon tho photograph sbows luminous white spot tbat looks like snow. If that Is snow, and If it was not there before, tun presence of an atmosphere Is Indicated. It has been be lieved that the moon has uo strnosnhore, and therefore is uninhabitable: but If It should be demonstrated tbat snow falls npon the surface of the satellite, the accepted theory would be upset, and astronomers would begin lo ttudy tbe moon with new nnd greater Interest Objects upon the moon ore detected by their shadows, nnd a projection or umlnenco fifty feet high lasts n shadow large enough to be seen though tbe Lick teloscope. If i'rof. Iloldon. studying bis scries of photogrnr hs. should dim-over some day a new shadow wbere none bad been cast bsfors when the moon was In tbo same position and under the same light he. would know that something hsd beeu erected upon tho surface, either a part of the crust upheaved by somo internal movement or a building put up by living creature. The moon appears to be a dead, desolate waste of Dlayed-out vnlcanoos and cooled-off lava beds, without atmosphere, and. like Ari zona, rather short of water and good society.

THE CBILDBEN TOVND DEAD IN A BOX AND TBe'liD LOCK SASTENED. sSforge Hamilton and Wire I.eft Their I.Htle Onea at Home While They Went Out on Tluslness, and tho Children Were Klther Locked In hy Playmates or by a Murderous Flend-Nothlng waa Stolen, InoMON, 0 Aug. 21. Goorge Hamilton and his wife went out this afternoon to make a buslnsss call, nnd when they roturned could not find their throe children. Tho parents supposed they wore playing with the,lr little neighbors, and paid no atten tion to tbelr Absence. Hamilton grow uneasy after awhile and began to look for tho little ones. Uestle, tbe oldest was only 8 years old, and the others, Edith and Emma, wero 1 and 2 respectively. Returning from the nolghbor's after a fruit less searoh, the parents began to look over the house. A large tool ehest stood ln one corner of the outside shed. Tho mother throw back the ltd, screamed, and fainted away, Her threo chil dren lay dead in tho chest. The babe had died first, and was clutched tightly ln tho arms ot the eldest The faces of all wore blackened and oongested. Tbe town was aroused at onoe. and officers hurried to make on investigation. They found that after the ohltdron hnd either climbed or bad been put Into the cheat a strong stick bad bsen forced Into the lock and staple, thus consigning them to certain death in a few minutes. The cries of the chil dren, of course, had bsen smothered by tbo thlok sides of ths ohsst. Mrs. Hamilton Is almost Insane, and it Is the general belief that tho children were deliber ately smothered by somo flood. A search of tho house revealed nothing disturbed, and there was no evidenco to point to murder but the tell-tale stick which had looked the children to their death. The theory Is given out thst some of the neighbors' children had been playing with them and looked them In without realizing the tcrrlblo consequences. This Idea, however, seems to be exploded by a close examination of the dead bodies. They bear evidences ot having been roughly handled, aa their clothes were torn and tbolr faces bruised, either in very rough play or by being roughly shoved into the death chest. They had evidently suffered much and fought fiercely for a breath of air. The father says that he is sure the children were playing In tbe yard when he and his wife left home. An Inquest will be held to-morrow. The mystery is keeping this placo awake to night The neighborhood has all been can vassed, but thero Is no discovery that other children were playing with Hamilton's llttlo ones during tbelr parent's absence.
