Manning IB) is a wealthy banker at 14 Wall street. As often happens, thore sro two sides to this story. One side is very soro. A ..B. Trtn tlO 000 sick, Mr. Plncknoy is a slim, mlld-faccd man of 30, with lovely light blue eyes and u blond moustache. Mr. Manning is n little hoavter than Pinckney, and 1b nenrlv twlco as old. He lias gray hair and beard, wears classes, and Is very resolute looking. Here Is 1'im.knoy' iil count of the kicking: " I'm mud. In fact I'm very mad. You'd be mad, too, It somebody kicked you. It hurts, too. llichton tbeond of tbe spine well, I'll toll you how It was. You sea, I wiib going to 'phono to tho ofllco about n tt nnsnctlon on tho floor, and I was comiug up the aisle.

When tlm reporter approached Jlr.

John Ron Telia tbe Story of tbe right In Harlem Sunday Nlffht, Giuseppe Baglino. or John Boss, as he calls himself, who was shot twice in tho head on Monday night when his brother Carmlna, or James Boss, was murdered, had recovored sufficiently yesterday to talk. He told Detec tive Brady aud Koundsmon Smith that Cnr mina Bnldo murdered his brother James. The police believe his story. The feud which ended in murder began on Sunday night over a game of cards. Nicholas Bagllno won 50 cents from the murdered man. who is his cousin. James Boss refused to settle the debt on tbe ground that Nicholas Bagllno had owed a similar debt of tl.50 to him for some time, and tils winnings reduced the debt to fl. George Boss quelled the row which followed by driving the half dozen Italian guest out of the house at the point of an empty shotgun. George Boss says that tbe row over the g.imbllne debt could readily have been settled, but the thought that tney bad lied before a singlo Italim armed with an empty gun nngered the Italians It wns a leflectton on their courage wh ch could only be settled In blood. Under thescclrctimstanccs It was more Important to kill him than tils brother. Nicho las Bagllno was assigned to the task, because he bad started the row. whllo fialdo was to kill James. Baldo did his work thoroughly, while Nicholas Baglmo made a failnrx of his ta-k. Uporge Boss. It is expoote I. will be nhlo to leave the hospital in about ten days. Upon Boss's statement the dutectlvonml roundsman made u chares nf homicide against Buldo In the Morrisanla Court esterday. Antonio Dachirioencouruged the murderers In their work, the police any, and shouted to them to "Shoot him again" when there wns n lull in the shooting In Boss's kitchen ou Monday night. He v,as charged with being accessory to the murder, and tne men wore committed without bail by Justice White until George itoss recovers sufflcieuily to testily against them. Dnnato Kaglino. brother of the accused, and Nicholas Pistocco were committed to the House ol Uetontlon ua witnesses br Justice White. The police are looking for Nicholas liaclluo.

I.EVER HAM SIS O LEFT AT.OXK XN A LITTLE ROOSI TO DIE. Visited Only by an Attendant Who Urinate Hlm lite Meal aad Ilnrrlea Array Pleadlnst to Retnrn to Ilia Native Land. All day long Sam Sing, the Jersey leper, sits looklngoutot the window of the Snake mil lazaretto and talking to himself. Ha has made a hard strugglo to regain his liberty, but h failed, nnd Is now locked up In a little room, where he will be left alone to die. There Is not the slightest doubt that Ram Is a lepor. The Hudson county authorities hav doclared so from the first Bam avowtd that they didn't know and got his friends to hire two outside physicians to journey to the hill In the Jorsey swamps. It these. physicians, whom he would par himself, adjudged his disease to bo leprosy he would abide by the tnovltabls. Tbe physiolans who SAM RING, accompanied Sam's friends to Snake QUI war Dr. Joseph Few Smith of Newark and Dr. Henry A. Allers ol Harrison. When they saw Snm they shook their heads and told his friends there wus no hope forbtm. Sam heard the verdict, and his tat head dropped forward upon bis breast " G'l'ood b'l'ye." said his countrymen. " G'l'ood b'l'ye." said bam In a choked tone. his glltenlng almond eres fixed upon the floor ns his friends filed out leaving him alone with the dreadful disease which will be his only companion during the few remaining years of his lire. Since then he has sat in solitude, muttering Imprecation! and prayers by turn. ptesli1 if TnK LM'LB'S LONESOME QUARTERS. When Sam was discovered In his little laun dry In Kearny and sent to Snake Hill by the Hudson county Health Board he was Isolated In a small room in tbe extreme end of the small-pox hospital. There is no other patient in tbe building at present The authorities nut the leper there temporarily. At the time they had a scheme to get rid of him complete ly. But their scheme has slnoe miscarried. The Hudson ounty Health Board talked the situation over and one nf tbe members waa btrut k with a brilliant Idea. " New York has established a leper lazaretto on North Brother Island. Wby not arrange with th- New York authorities to have bam join that colony i" he said. ' Why not" tbey all echoed In chorus. The scheme was unfolded to tbo New York authoilties. nut they didn't become enthusias tic ov,-r It. so Jereev bad to establish a leper lanretto of her own. The lazaretto has been establi-bad, much to the disgust of the Snake Hill officials and to the teiror of the Snako Hill Inhabitants. Tbe loner will occupy the room In the small pox bosuitol as long as there are no small pox casris In the county. What will be done with him in the event of the hospital's being required forsmall-oov cases Is not now known, bam Is shut up In this room with his own thoughts. The only person he sees, except through tbe window, is the attondant who brings his meals to him, seta them down hastily ou tbe small staud, and quickly edges A roporter of The Sun visited tbe leper ln the lazaretto yesterday. The sight was re volting. The disease has progressed much more In his cae than it has In those of the two lepers on North Brother island, and his ap l eurance Is much more horrible. Sam Is 38 years old. and unusually large and stout for a , Chinaman. His bend is enormous, but 1 whether Its size Isnatuial or due tothedls i ease Is hard to say. His forehead and face are I terribly disfigured. There I very little hair mi his head, and the queue, the pride of every Chinaman. Is not over a foot long. Sam wns dressed in a b.ue blouse and a pair or large legced trousers. He wore a pair of wooden JH All fill 1r "Cun m'Pe g'l'o baok to Chinee?" Sam asked anxiously when the reporter entered. "M'l'o want g'l'o bnclt and will g'l'o If you'll let m'l'e. Don't want to stay bore. N'l o b'l'ody talkee to no trends. Hav m'l'e can g'lo back: say m'l'e can g'l'o back." l)i. King, tbe resident physician, qnteted the leper by telling him tbey would be glad to let Mm return to China if tbey had assurance that he would reallygo. "Oh m'l'e g'l'o. m'l'e g'l'o." the leper kept repeating. . . . . . , . When asked bow long be had been ill 8am "hl'i years. Slept nut dToors one night and sk'i'ceteia Vl'it m'l'e here," pointing to the sores on his face, ' That's what's m'l'atter with m'l. M'l'e no leper." Becoming suddenly indignant. Sam declared: " M'l'e s'l'uo o'l'ounty for 120,000." When he hnd made this declaration he be came despondent again, bis eyes wandered tack to the floor, nmi be muttered: "MTo no leper, m'l'e no leper.", , . So fur as could be learned Sam has been ln this country for eighteen years. He has made several journeys io Clilna since he took up bis residence heie. He had been in business In Kenruy lor a year bofore tbo Board of Health declined hlm a leper. He went there with the dlsense In an advanced stage, and hls-bldeous appearance had no nppnront effect upon his buslue-s. Before l.e opened his laundry InKenr uyhe lived ln Newark. Ho was there for a number of years, but eluded detection. He line many friends In Newark who associated with him without fear, nnd who may possibly become lepers themselves.

Ho was a man of roving disposition, and nt one time was the cause of a good deal of diplomatic corre spondence between this Government and Co rea. He aleo wrote a letter to this city from Cot en which caused a great scandal ln clcty elides, and brought forth denials and denun ciations of what he said In that letter by tho members of the Corean Legation. Major Lee and Col. K. H. Cummlngs went to Corea in 1889 under written contracts with tho Corean Government to serve in tbe work of reorganizing and disciplining the Corean army. Suddenly they were notified that their services had been dispensed vvltb. This was In diroct violation of their oontract but they could set no satisfaction from tbe Corean Minister. They thereloro laid their case bo tore Secretary Blaino. but It has never been soflcd to their satisfaction. Lee. iu, ono of his letters, said that the Inactivity of the Stnte Department in the matter was the laughing stock of all foreigners in Seoul. Corea's capital. He said that the Fronch Commissioner had told hlm that K the two Americans were Frenchmen he would have u gunboat off Seoul and the matter settled In twenty-four houta. In another letter it was stated that 11. N. Allon, the King's ,merl an Hi cretary at Wash ington, bad once Innodnced abandoned wo men of u lowclns- to the White House on New Year's day as t.orean ladles, and hud allowed a fellow who had boon a gate porter for tbe mis sionaries in Seoul to call himself a i rince In Washington. Tbo contents of the letter cot Abroad among soc ety people, who were nttbat time making mm h of the Corenns, ami a mighty hubbub en ued. All the members of the Coiean Km' nssr were up ln arm atonce. Uho statements made bt thelettomere Indig nantly denied to the Mate Department aud to the houses whore the Corenns, mule and female, had been received. or some weeks tbe prlncli al tophi ln Washington society was whether or not the Corcans should be counte nanced, l'inally the matter blew over and thti gs went along as tbey had before the scandal. , ln tbe correspondence which the two-American olilcera hnd with Che Mate Department a great deal was said oy Chem about the bank lupt condition of the ( ore&nB. their llckleness, end the utter unreliability or the Governmi nt Ttie two officers lurnlsbed Mr. Blaine with a copy of the letter written by Allen, In which be said that he at tho Klmt's request, endeavor, d to lntei est American capitalists in the Corean ftold mines, in that ietteroccurred the follow ng sentence: " It was dlffloult but I was successful at last beyond my highest expectation, for I suc eeeiled In Interesting a lot of the best New York capitalists, including Levi P. Morton, so that they made a definite proposition to unite and form a pool of $10,000 with which to send an expert to look at the Corean gold deposits." Mr. Allen was either mistaken or the " capi talists" discovered In someway the real merits or tbe scheme, for no pool was evor formed and no expert sent to Corea. CHEROKEE LAXDS. Brabable Hals to the Government Soon and Its Beaulta. Tahlequih, I. T.. Sept 8. The auestionof breaking up of the tribal relations now exist ing ln the Indian Territory and tbe allotment of all land per capita among the Indians is just beginning to asitate the Cherokees. Since 1721 tbe CheroKees have made forty seven treaties with the Government, and have deeded to it over 18,000,000 acres. In 1772 tbey ceded to tbe whites the northern portion ot Kentucky, where Covington now scands. At other times they disposed ot Ten nessee. Georgia. Noith Carolina, and sections of other States. Gradually tbeir magnificent domain was contracted, and tbey lo-t their hold on western Missouri. When tbe Govern ment organized the Indian Territory they re treated to this refuge, receiving more than 12 000,000 acres of the oholcest land. A short period of undisturbed quiet followed, and tnen the Usages wanted a home. The Cherokees surrendered l.OOO.OOu acres to them for money. Net they sold strips of lands ln Kansas, each time pockotlng largo sums of money. Now tbc-y find themselves driven to the extremity of selling their last surplus land or taxing tbemselv es '1 bus It comes that the famous Cherokee strip Is on tbe market After Its sale there will rcma,n only their home tract of C 000.000 acres. Ah a rule, the Cherokee Indians favor a sale of tho Strip to the Government at ll.'Ji per acre. The failure of Ihe United btstes Com mission sent to tbe nation last year to negoti ate for this tract was almost wholly due to tbe obstinacy of the half-breeds and adopted altl zens. who, for seltlsh ends, opposed the sale. From a private letter received by a member of the Cherokee Legislature from an official at Washington it Is learned that tbe Commission will return in -November next and offer l.fu peraorn for the strip, which will probably be accepted by the Cherokees. If purchased by tbe Government theseC.OOO,. 000 acres nf fine land will be annexed t Ok lahoma and thrown open to white Battlers at once This addition to the Territory of Okla homa will enuble her to be admitted into the Union, and for this reason the people of Okla homa are very anxious to have the Strip pur chased as soon as possible.
