Lyon himself gave tho note to the Imy. Whoguve it to Lons Tho polieesay that Minuyiliil. hut they havo no witness to prove It. Neither liae they any one toprpwthat KUncyevor used red Ink or that liferxaver had anyi-fu-hls possession, though they hae searched bis home ana about 'everywhere else to get ovidenee. Kllney says that ho saw Lyons ' band the piece of paper to the boy. but that ho does not know whero Lynns got If or what was written on the p.ipor until he read it in tho newspapers and ho denies that he wroto with red Ink at any tune. In order to try and provo that blinoy wroto tho noto the police now have experts at work on handwriting thnt Is known to he his; and that was written long boforo the crime wiMLcouimitted. AnotheVnrrest was made rfi the case yoter-" day. I.tcf since tho murdojt was cominittod there Imto been vacuo rumors about soma rnan having witnessed It through the open doorway of the butcher shop. Thoio startod with tho report that nn old woman on tho opposite sido or tlio street had seen a man start to no into tho shop nt ., exactly 4:15 o'clock, ami that he ran out and up the street and into a saloon. The saloon keeper told tho dotoctlves that a man bad run into Ills placo, poured out u full glass of whiskey, said lie bad lust seen a murder committed, and walked out. On Friday night ." the deteetivi s found a man named Hweony.and the saloon keeper Identilled him nn tho man i who had made the remark, fewoeny swore up and down that ho hnd noversuid anything of the kind, but that some oilier man had told , him that he had seen a murder committed. Tlio man urrested yesterday was a long shoroman named Ilaitholomew Cotter of 148 Cliorry btroet That is two doors from the butchor shop. According to Acting Captain lltzgorald. Cotter mndo tho following state ment just boforo his arrest: "I w.is jjolng by Lyons'a butcher ebon about i 4:lf)o dock on Wednesday afternoon. Ilooked Into thn store us 1 went by and saw Lyons Btandms up 'n the middle of tho store. Ho x:.w reaching up with n match between his lingers to light tho gas. While he was stand ing thoio with his right arm held aboe his head lie was struck in tho bend with a cleaver by a man stnndlng behind him. Lyons clapped bis hand to Ills head and staggorcd across the floor. J did not see tho. face of tho man who BtrucJC'.hlm. I walked on because I did not want to get into any trouhlo myself." After Ills arrest Cotter was takon beforo Cor oner Jlessemer. ami after an examination was committed to the House of Detention. Thoro nro two stories about what the examination disclosed. Tho police version is that the man repeated tho btory to tlm Coroner with tho ad dition that he thought Kllney was tho criminal. Tho other one Is that tlio man denied that ho bad ever made any such statement as the po lice say. Tho reporters got a chance to ques tion Cottor nt tlie Coroners' olllce, nnd to them bo said ho did not see the murder. When ho came home from work that night bo snid bo saw iiernwd around Lyons's shop. Ho was told tlftt.tlio butcher had been murdered, und thnt w;is tlKj first ho knew of the murder. Ho said that be did not seo Lyons reaching up for thegttu ami lie didn't see him struck with a clene)TunI he knew absolutely nothing about the case. Then ho was carted away byndu- tPl'tlVll- i Oni', thing well nigh fatal to thn police enso against Slney has been tlio failure to tllscovor nny motive for thn murder. Now tlm police say they have a motive, and tills Is it. Doth Kllney and Lyons wore members of n lodge of tlm loresters. Kllnify was tho treiiurer. He cot ltlr behind In bis accounts ft week ago. They nay that Kllney told Lyons of this ami nt tho mine time told him he wits In financial trouhlo and couldn't pay the money: thnt Lynns car ried thdtalotntho other oflicers of the lodge, and that tliut was tho reason an auditing com mittee wns put at wiiil: on bllney'slmoks. when Bliuoy heard that Lynns had told. Me beenmo infuriated, and dellberatiily plannod and exocuted tho miinler. In considering this alleged motive It may bo well to remember the tact that Kllnoy's father Is pretty well-to-do. that blinoy himself wns earning a fair income, and that ho has con tracts with the Civile Steamship Company, tlio 'Xhurlor-Wliylanil Company. Henry Ileorman, and others, and thnt ho could. If he wanted to, get a considerable amouutuf money together In a very short time.

The Klda aad the Ore aalee at roothall ea the City Hall Asphalt. Tho Kids and tho Oreaslos played their first football gnmo on tho asphalt in front of tho City Hall yesterday. Tho olovens wore organ ized for the occasion, and disbanded as soon as tho cop carao In sight, but whllo the gamo lnstcd it was full of action. r Mngsy startod tho game. All day Friday ha had boon reading accounts of the Yalo-Frinco-ton game, with tho result that his mind became full of thoughts on rushes and taokllng. Mngsy Is only 14 years old, and his enthusiasm Is unbounded. Ho gathered hla frlonda around him, and said: " Say, foll'rs. let's get up a game o' football. I'll show jo how t' play. Of courso thoy all assented, and were ao anxious to play that Mugsy had to select Al teon for oach eleven. Then ho said: " Youso Ml bo do Elds 'nd you fellers '11 be do Greasles. If y'r a Kid y' don' want t' lick anuddor Kid, but If a Greasy swipes d' ball maul'im. Hero's d' ball." He produced a bundlo of nowspapers held togethor by a piece of twine. Then ho took tho two fifteens Into tho park and marshalled them on the asphalt so thnt the Kids faced tho Greasles. Ilo find great difficulty In keeping tho backs In their places, as thoy didn't want to bo so far away from the lino of collision, whom thoy know tho fun would bo. They erowdod so far forward that the rush lines were broken, and Mugsy becamo disgusted. "Kay. can't you fellers keop back whero I tole ye ? Get back doro. Mickey, 'r I'll panto y In if snoot" Mickey got hack. Thon. after a briof survey of tho lines. Mugsy yelled to tho contro rush: " Dan. givo do ball a chuck." .... Dan chucked tho roll of papers. Hedldnt mind whore bo chuckod it but as soon as It had left his hands he made a rush for tho nearest kid and grappled with him. and they rolled to tho ground togethor. In an instant tho others wore upon them in a big. struggling heap. Nobody cared which side he was on. but ovory mother's son of them wanted that hall. "GltolT mo head!" came a smothered voioe from the bottom of the heap. " I got d' ball." shouted ono. "Hey, tako y r foot out'n me eye. will y '"Hawi'kickln'?" A group of spectators had gathered and was watching tho gamo with Interest Mugsy crawled out at tho bottom of tho heap, minus a shoo. Ho wiped tho dust off his face, gazed at tho struggling mass with a look of disgust and exclaimed: "Hullygoe. doy tlnk dat's footbalL" Just then thoro was a cry of "Cheese It tho cop!" Tho next Instant tho twoelovons had disbanded. AXI3IALS LOVE IBB WEED. A. Mare aad Colt That Will Chew all the Tobacco They Caa Get. Woicorr. N. Y.. Nov. 2a Tho claim sot forth from tlmo Immemorial by tobacco haters, that no unlmal would touch the weed, that oven tho hog felt abovo it seems destined to receive a serious eotback. Eugone Russell, a farmer living on tho Post Bay road near Lako Ontario, Isthoownor of a mare and colt that are ex tromoly fond of tobaoco. The mare formed tho habit long boforo the birth of tho colt, and in tho caso of tho youngster tho appetite teems to havo beon Inherited. Threo years ago Mr. Itasscll decided that he would cure tho maro of her habit and to do so he gave hor two pounds of fine cut. which she dovourod with relish. This not fazing hor a bit ho tried leuf tobacco, of which he Is a producor In a small way. After btowlng away a quantity of this she showed symptoms of distress. Sho was dizzy, and wanted to liodown nnd think over her sins, about as a small boy might have wanted to do under similar clrcumstancos. This bettled her, as far us the plain leal was concerned. Hho has nover tasted it sinuo. though lino cut touches the spot tho sumo as ever it did. This was not long previous to thoblrth of the colt, nnd tho llttlo fellow exhlbitod almost from tho first tho " hankering" for a chow. It was bestowed whllo ha was yet at nurse, and from thnt day to this both animals will lullow any stranger all over tho lot who has the smell of tobacco about his clothes. The colt strungo to say. was not affected by the mother's aver sion to natural leaf, but iovos that oven better than lino cut and masticates all of either that is forthcoming. Iloth animals are boautles. and nt healthier are to be found-la horseflesh, in thoaejiarte. Mr. Russell eayaho.tblnka.thp uso of tobacco has kept them from having in testinal worms, which so often distress horses and injure their dlgostibn. The mare Is now eleven years old ana the colt is over two. At the Xaeeums.

William IL Johnson, 43 yoars old, of Bedford avonuo, Brooklyn, was arrested last night in Jersey City on a chargo of embezzling a large sum of money from William Harney. Harney Is a real estate agent in Jersey City. Johnson was his bookkeeper up to two years ago, wln-n ho absconded. An examination of his books dlsclosod tho fact that he had embezzled $l.a.0OO. As he Is Mr. Harney's cousin it was decided not to prosocute him. Recently, when a young man, named Edward Hyer, Harney's wifo's cousin and Johnson s successor as bookkeep er, absconded with W.OOO, Harnoy Informod the polico of Johnson s ombozzloment and pro cured a warrant for bis arrest from Polio- Jus tleo O'Dpnnell.

Tho hunter hur ried forward to whoro tho big deer lay. and drew his knlfo to cut its throat To tils surprise tho doer that ho supposod was doad sprang to its foot as ho was about to bond down and use his knife and furiously attacked him. Caroy had his empty gun in ono hnnd. Ho jumped quickly asldo as tho buck raised In tho air and struck at him with Its sharp forefeet and prevented tho full forco of tho blow fal.ing upon htm. This at tack of a woundod buck is more dreaded by hunters than tho rush of a furious boar, ono of tlio hoofs struck Caroy on tho loft shouldor. turning him half way round and almost knock ing him off his feet As tho buck gathered himself for another loap. Carey struck It ovor tlio head with Ills gun. The blow was asovoro one. but it had llttlo effect on tho door. Tho only damage done was to tho gun. the barrels being broken from tho stock by tlie forco of tho blow. Now followod a most exciting and perilous time for Carey. Tho accr renowed its attack at once, and Us movemonts wore too quick for tho huntor, for it planted both of Its forefeet squarely against Carey's shouldors. Tho con tact was moro than ho could withstand, and ho was thrown to tho ground. Carey quickly ro galnod his feet only to bo confronted by tho Infuriated buck, egain in the air ready to hurl ltsell ugaln upon tlio hunter. Tho knife that Caroy hold iu ills hand whon tho deer so un expectedly rose from the ground whore It was supposod to ho lying deud had been knocked from his hand whon tho buck attacked him and throw him down, and ho knew that his only hope of escape was to koep himself clear of tno door's hoofs until tho wounds of the rifle balls proved fatal, which Caroy believed would be soon, as blood was pouring in streams from a bullet hole in tlio dour'j breast ana from ono in itH shoulder. When tho deer camoathim the third tlmo. therefore. Caroy ducked, and rushing in upon the buck threw both aruiB uround its body, its foro legs passing over and resting upon the hunter s shouldors. But tho buck s wounds wero either not ns sorious as Caroy had thought, or tho door wns unusually tenacious of life, for after moro than ten minutes' con stant wrestling with tlio deer In tho scrub oaks, during which tlmo tho buck threw tho hunter three tlmos, broko his hold, and tram pled htm beneath Its sharp-pointed hoofs, cutting and bruising him In a terrible manner, the wounded buck scorned to bo nsfroshnnd full of life nn it was when it camo bounding down tho ridge toward Carey's runway. On tho contrary, thn huntor was becoming exhaustod. There wore other hunters in tho vicinity und likewise a lumber camp not far awuy, and while wrestling nnd struggling with tho doer Carey had shouted lustily for help, hoping that tho hunters or lumbermen might hear him and come to his aid. No aid hod reached lilm. however, and tlie huntor saw thnt ho would ho nimble to hold out much longer ngnlnst the deer unless he could adopt and quickly utilize tnctlcs more favorable to successfully combatting tho buck than tho do fonsivo ones which wore tiring him out While none of the Injuries ho had received wero dangerous, they weto In a measure disabling, and his clothing hung in tatters from his body. ,WhiIo struggling for tho third timo with his arm clasped nbout tho deer's body. Carey saw that they had wrestled to within n few feet of his gun barrels, wRich he had dropped when tho door had knocked him down tho tlrst time. By a quick effort, which Ills desperation mndo successful, he disen gaged himself from the deer.nnd lying forward got possession of tho gun barrels. He had only time to riso upright bofore tho buck was again upon him. Carey put all his strength In tho blow, and brought the heavy gun barrels down on the deer's head, springing aside as he struck, so that tho blow fell at tho base of tho antlers, tlio deer sank to its knees beneath thotorceof tlie blow, nnd before it could rise Carey dealt another one, nnd and a third crushed the animal's skull. Tho buck fell over on its side, and Carey sank to the ground, fall ing across tho deor'sbody. He lay there half an hour boforo ho recovered strength enough to go to the lumbor calnp, whore his injuries wero attendod to. The dog hnd not appeared on the scene at all during tho tight between Carey and the buck, or It would have beon soon over. Carey learned that they had started two deer, and had fol lowed the trail of tho other one instead of the buck's. Tliis buck was a six-prong buck, which nro rare, and tho largest killed in that region for many a year, an immense buck known as "Old Oroeloy." which had been hunted for years, and was finally killed by a pnrty of which tho late Gov. Geary was one, be ing tho only ono whloh could compare in size with this oue: DINNER XO LORD ABERDEEN: The National Federation to Eatertala niat at 1 elmonlco'a oa Dee. 8.

For two years he held nndtsputod sway, lording It ovor the gamins of tho street Hko an autocrat but his rolgn Is ovor. No moro will tho llttlo fellows cower bo Death hla cold earn No longor will thoy par trlbuto to him In ordor that ho may havo tho wherewithal to ploy craps. Like many anothor despot Tug wont jUBt ono step too far. Tug's real namo IsJlmmloGarvoy, and he lives at 25 Chorry streot Ho Is 13 years old. but looks hardly more than 10. Hois short stocky, red-haired, and Impudent and a moro fitting nickname than "Tug" could not havo boon selcctod for him. Yesterday ho appeared in tho Tombs Police Court a prisoner. A group of newsboys gathered around tho reporter and told about Tug's crimes. All savo two had como to mako complaints against him. Thoso two woro his frionds, and. with boyish loyalty, wore going to stand bvhlra through adversity. " What has Tug dono V" tho reporter asked a bluo-oyod, frccklo-facod boy. who was tailor than thn rest . "Aw. he swipod. money 'n papers offn all de kids wot couldn't lick 'im.

One of the directors of the Now York Club said yesterday of tho fusa in club domostio affairs: "The morning paporshad a pretty truo ac count of tho matter, but they mado a mistake in saying that E. S. Chapln and IL A. Rogers woro membors of tho Board. Thoy woro not The only man who did not resign was Orson Adams. Wo wantod to got him out but ho wouldn't go. " The club as it exists to-day Is a corporation organlzod under tho law of 1875. By that law every manager and director Is responsible for tho debts of the club. Adams Is the only di rector in tho club now. The latest and most direct trouhlo was this: Thoro was a Bhort aco of nearly $3,000 In tlio last fiscal accounts. On lnvestlgatlbn we found that It was caused by an extraordinary consumption of Vichy that wasn t paid for. Vichy costs 25 cents a bottle. If a man didn't havo a frosb. bottle with his glass of whiskey ho kicked. Aftor tho facts camo out I suggested in a meeting that wo should charge for tlio Viohy and givo tlio whiskey free. Wo wouldn't have lost as much in that way. Tho kicking went on. and Anally wo all resigned except Adams, who wouldn't nnd tho President nnd Secretary, who couldn't being prevented by tho laws of the club. "Wo have paid off $55,000 of indebtedness In tho past threo years. At ono of tho Inst meetings u member got up and said that ho objected to paying out tlio club's monoy in that way. 'Let posterity pay It ho said. ' I said: Have you consulted posterity about thomattor? If you haven't wo will keep on pnylng.' ' Tho truth Is. thore is a decidedly impecu nious crowd thoro. They got in whon wo were at tho other house. About sixty of thorn havo been dropped for non-payment of dues and bills, and more wilt follow. Those nro tho fel lows who mako the trouble. After a man is posted wo allow him two months in which to settle. Tho limit Is. 25. After ho is posted una until settlement, ho can t even buy a cigar for cash. Attho end of tho eight weeks he gen erally borrowslmoney enough or gets some one to pay his bill. Thon no starts in again. That class of men mako all tho bother.

'They Kay he Heady la January aad Work May he Beaua Neat Tear. , It la possible that tho completed plans and drawings of the proposed Protestant Episcopal Cathodral of St John tbo Divine, with esti mates, may bo ready In January noxt and, that a beginning may bo mado on tho actual work of building within the coming year. The architects havo until April 1 noxt to complete their plans and specifications, but their work ia so far advancod that tho final de sign for tho cathodral may be decided upon at the next mooting of the Board of Trustee in Decomber. , Hovoral important and striking changes have been made, and tho completed cathodral will bo handsomer In many dotallsthan tho building shown in tho design as originally ac cepted. All these ohanges have beon tho out como of close stiidy by tbo architects, and by tlio mombors of the Board of Trustees. Tho trustees havo been in constant commu nication with the architects, both In full meet ings and individual consultations, and Mr. Holns of tho firm of Helns A, La Fargo, tho ar chitects of tho work, said yostorday that tlio trustees bad mado suggestions of striking value. At each mooting of tho Board drawings havo been shown embodying all tho suggestions mado and found practicable dur ing thn preceding month. While some Im fiortant changes nro shown by thoso pictures, ho general design of tho cathedral has been closely prosorved. Among other alterations suggested and embodlod in the drawings was tho removal of tlio two spiroB at tho front entrance and tho carrying higher nnd making more solid of tho two tow ers which the spires surmounted. The two doors urdor the towers were taken out and thn front mado more slmplo and massive. A gallery was substituted along the roof of the nnvo in placo of the rows of small spires, and tho nave Itself lengthened by the addition of one window. Many other altera tions or modifications, whloh could not well be understood, exoept by oomparlson with the original pictures, were suggested, but all are still subject to rejection or change. It ia Srobable that the two front spires, in a modi ed form, will be.rotalnod. and that the navo will bo lengthened as stated, and that a great number of smaller alterations will be made. A now drawing will bo presented to the Board of Trustees next month" embodying suggestions made botweon now andthe maet iftgof tho Board. If tho trustees accept the doslgn the architects will proceed with the scale drawings, plaps. sections, elevations. Ao , nnd will present tno completed drawings for public exhibition as soon as possible Tbo trustoos aro already In possession of the site for the cathodral at 110th street Thoy havo. enough money In hand and in sight to pay ror tno ground. Tho chancel will bo erected first and ao walled and roofed In, without finishing the ornamentation, as to afford n place in whloh to hold service. Then the work will be carried on as funds and discretion may allow. It lias beon suggested that $250,000 a year was as much ns could be safely and properly usod, but a million dollars could be spent just as well if necessary, Mr. Helns thinks. The work will not bo huriiod, though. It has also boon suggested thai a good plan would be to raise a fund largo enough. to yield a yearly income of about $200,000. and to use only this Income. That would obviate the necessity of constant appeals for funds to carry on the work, and would also provide a good endowment for the cathedral when completed. The trustoos think that while a pretty big fund would bo needed for this project it could be secured. MRS. CREMEB "IBB WITCH." Arrested a aa Accomplice or Mr. BehaU oa Complaint or a Girt.
