the Herreshoff shops. A large force Is working
on the fin keel sloop now on the stocks. Her
outside planks were all pnt in position last
Friday and she was smoothed down. On Batur
day morning sho was turned over to have her
deck beams put In place, and her deck Is now
being laid. Her fin Is finished and her spars are
almost ready. Iter sails are being made by
Hathaway at tlfe works.
The fin keel half-rater built for Walter tang

rattling good time. On Wednesday morning sho

long run, and finished half a mile to windward.
On Thursday she had another trial In the liar

was found that In running before the wind she
could not nulte keep up to the launch, bat In
running full and by sho could easily distance It.

The Ilerrcshofls are experimenting with the
steam launch Kid. which Is a tender to the
sleam yacht Eugenia, and she has had several
trials recently. She has been fitted with a Her

Thnrneycroft engine In appearance and In some
details of constriction. The lioller Is very small
and compact. Kerosene Is used as fuel. The
space occupied by both engine and boiler Is very
small, and the cost of fuel Is very slight. The

not very fast, but It Is expected that a good
speed will ultimately ho attained.

International Taaraey far th Fall.
Jacob Bchaefer, the little liard of billiards
and greatest fancy shot player In the world, got
home yesterday morning on tho French liner
La Navarre, after a six months' profitable so
journ In Paris. Hla wife and his two-year-old
daughter Annie enme homo with him, nnd so
did his brother Charley and his wife, and Wil
liam Splnka, the Western literary bllllardlst.
The steamer got loher pier so early that the WU
ard's friends dldnt get a chance to welcome Mm
In their usual tumultuous style. Harvey Ubert,
the Wizard' old partner and tlllllardlst John
Randolph Helser shook hands with him at the
pier. Jnke was tired, and they let him go to the
Hotel MnrlWnugh to get some much-needed
rest. 1 talked of his trip abroad later on with
his daughter on his knee trying to talk French
to her mother. Ills first sentence was charac
teristic "Well, you sec I'm home again and ready to
play anybody any kind of a gamo for any
amount," he said, nnd ho said It with n spirit
that showed that his stay In Paris had agreed
Thei Wizard' return was qullo unexpected.
He nnd his rival, Frank Ives, united for bust
lies reasons on July 1 last nnd took a year's
lease of the Grand Oaf, next to the Grand Ho
tel and the Cafe Adulph on the Rue Vivien.
The partnership was abruptly broken by the
order of tho French Minister of the Interior
prohibiting all further betting on the gsmes.
For yean the authorities bad permitted billiard
lover to wager money mi the Academy
matches, anil the proprietors wero permitted
to take '.'0 per cent, of tho reielpts as
lxinus. The order of the authorities mused
all tho aradomlea to close nnd brought profes
sional billiards to a standstill In the gay capital.
Consequently Schnefer nnd his party came
home. Schaefer had engaged Fournll, Cure,
Cntton, Manuel, a Spanish chnmplon, Albert
Garnlcr.and Pago to play him anil Ives. Schaefer
blames tho collapse of the bltlhird Industry to
Vtgnaux'a injudicious action In opening nil
nendemy at tho Casino do Pnrls, a new cafo
situated on tho Tlnulevard, It hsd an amphi
theatre seating 1100 spectators, and It mado tho
French style of games it little too conspicuous
for those who didn't like billiard matches. The
reformers protested, nnd billiards had to go to
Schaefer plajed for a long while at Vlgnnux'
Academy under contract, meeting Vlgnaux,
lleau. Gitalin, Page, and Carter, the American
cushion enrrom expert. Ives played n while be
fore his partnership with tho wizard at Cnfe
Adolpb. lioth Schaefcrnnd Ives played Vlgnaux
at a private rlub. nnd Imth beat the French cham
pion. Schaefer played him 1100 point at balk line
nnd 100 mints cushion enrroms. Ives beat
him 300 points balk line nnd lf points
three-cushion enrroms. Vlgnnux plays only
In tho daytime nnd takes things very easy. As
long as their partnership lasted Ives and
Schaefer placd twice a day, and tho Wizard
won six nut of eight gumca with tho young Nn
" Fournll and Curo are almost certain to visit
America this fall," said Schaefer, "and they aro
the most promising player In Paris. I don't
think that either Gamier or Plot can be pre-
ailed upon to come here. Fournll Is the best
balk-line nurser on the other sldo of tho water."
During this Interview It turned out that Splnks
had gono nbroad with a special commission
from George F. Slosson to arrange for two
matches between himself and any Frenchman,
or Frank Ives, the game to be balk line and
cushion carroms respectively, for $1,000 a sldo
each, the games to be played in America.
Slosson was willing to allow fsDO expensee. but
the Frenchmen nil asked from tl,R00 to J'.OOO
guarantee, and tho negotiations were broken
off. Splnks reports that William Cotton, the
Chicago expert, will be home In two weeks.
Ives will stay abroad until October, nnd Eu
gene Carter Is going to Switzerland.
WCharley Schaefer played cushion enrroms nnd
three-cushion enrroms during his stay abroad.
He and his wife nnd his brother's wife nnd child
aro going to Chicago to-night. Tho Wizard will
remain here a fortnight. He was entertained
by Maurice Daly last night. He said that
for the first time In twelve years he had no defi
nite plans for the future. He Is not now
under engagement with his old patrons, tho
II., R., C. Company, Ho will be present
at the opening match between his old- '
time rival, "Old Comanche" Illlly Sexton I
nnd Hciser at Maurice Daly's new academy.
Tho Wizard had a chat with Sexton and with
George Slosson last night. He showed some
new-fangled French chalk. It Is green and
sticks like glue to the cue tip. He says It Is the I
greatest thing In the world. He calls It V magic
chalk." and says that he mado but one solltarv i
mlscue In all the six months he plated with It
nbroad. Ho brought homo several boxes of
Freneti cue tips for his own private ue. i

CATHOLIC SU.VMEU .SCHOOL.
Fatker Pardow. tke Provincial or the
Jesuits, lVarstly Endorses It.
PLATTSBUnaii, Aug. O.-The feature of to
day's session of the Cathollo Summer School
w as the official endorsement of the school by the
Provincial of the Jesuits, the Rev. William O'D.
Pardow. Just before his lecture this evening
" We Jesuits are glad to show our appreciation
and interest In Any movement Intended for the
further enlightenment of the people, and to sec
ond such a movement. We are most pleased to
see that this Catholic Summer School has taken
hold. This summer school is not based on any
French-ln-flve-lesaons system. Although we
have not much time here In the summer school,
still our plan of work Is not superficial. Dr.
Samuel Johnson, fine old man that hu was, said
there were two ways of studying books
one way was to examine the pages, a long
way, and another way was to examine tho
backs, a shorter way. There Is a great deal to
be learned from the backs of books, because
there we will find wheie we will get what we
want. Here in our school we cannot sound the
depths of what we are learning, but here we
cau find out where we can get tne depths of all
knowledge; here new lines are laid out. now
vistas are opened out to tho eager students. The
summer school does not propose to do away
with difficulties. Education must be dim
cult. As with the squirrel, his teeth were
made for cracking, and. If hot used for their
rightful purpose, will work ruin and destruc
tion on the possessor. When my little squirrel
died, through my cruel kindness, I made one re
solve that Ihate kept. 1 havo not cracked any
more nuts for my pupils. I hae said: ' Here Is
the nut and here Is tne nut cracker,' and left
him to make the proper connection. That Is
what Is dune for you here In Plattaburgh."
The main thesis of the first lecture on the
Hiblebv the Rev. Father Pardow was the dem
onstration of the crt-dentlalsof Christ. The lec
turer drew a fine distinction between the ait
thorltyof evidence aud theeidence of author
ity. He answered the objection that the Church
t halned the Illble to kerplt from the people by
citing the example of New York apothecaries
who chain their illy directurles,and he killed the
objection by laughter.
There was a large audience at the lectures to
day, although the morning ami afternoon lec
tures were Intruded primarily for teachers.

Is located a block north ef Flushing avenue In a
sparsely settled spot. Welbert Is about n. years
old. Ho has been arrested twlco for 111 treating
bis wife. The last arrest occurred about a
month ago, when the police broke Into tho place
and found his wife unconscious at the foot of
tho cellar stairs. She wss covered with wounds
and had several gashes in her head.
On recovering consciousness In the Astoria
Hospital, she said her husband had attacked her
with a club and benten licr until she finally 1e

succeeded In getting some uno to go on his liond,
nnd when his wlfo was discharged from tho
hospital, about a week ago, It In asserted! that ho
frightened her Into not prosecuting him, and the
couple went to live together again aa Iwfore.
Shortly before 0 o'clock last night the resi
dent living within earshot of the saloon wero
alarmed by a woman' screams nnd cries of
murder. They Immediately surmised that Wel
bert was licntlng his wife again. Tho cries In
creased nnd were accompanied at Intervals by
loud oaths In a man's voice.
A little party was noon collected and hnrrled
to the house. They found the doors all fast.
Sound of a struggle came from the In
side, and a woman could be heard pleading In
German for her life. Finally subdued groans
took the place of the shrieks and cries.
When the crowd, fearing that Welbert had
murdered hla wife, attempted to force the door,
a pistol shot was heard Inside and a bullet
ploughed Ita way out through the frail wood
work. The crowd fell back, but aa it Increased In

" Fire the house 1" " Lynch hlml" " Ilreak In tho

After considerable parleying the police In

New? of the arrest of First Officer Robertson
of the Pacific Mull steamship San Jose by the
authorities of Corinto, Nicaragua, was brought
here yesterday by passengers of the Columbian
line steamship Finance, who hail been trans
ferred from the San Jose at Panama. Mr. A.
E.Morgans, an Englishman who has lived in
Central America for the last eighteen )ears,
was aboard the San Joi-e and saw the trouble.
Mr. Morgans was seen lat night at the Holland
" The San Jose had Just arrived In port." he
said, " and, as usual, swarms of natives row ed
out in their boat with fruit. A big, burly fellow
succeeded In getting aboard and Robertson or
dered htm off. The native refused to go and
Robertson tried to put him-off. In a minute or
two they were rolling around the deck. At lat
the native got the best of the officer, and,
w renchlng himself loose, sprang to his feet. As
he did so he gave the officer a powerful kirk In
the face. Then he cleared the railing and landed
in the water. He came up In a moment and
swam to a boat-In which were a woman and
three men, who were also fruit peddlers.
" Itobertson had sprung to his feet, and. run
to the railing, he saw the native climb Into the
boat. He stooped, and picking uu a heavy piece
of wood, threw It with alt his might at the
grinning native In the boat. The man dodged,
the stick passed over his head and struck the
woman on the forehead. She threw up her
arms and fell back In a dead faint. Illood was
running from her eyes, ears, and mouth.
"Capt. Russell came on deck Just then and
ordered one of the ship's boats lowered. He got
In It with several of us and went to the woman's
assistance. We could do little or nothing, and
concluded to take her to the hospital onshore.
The authorities demanded that Robertson 1ms
turned over to them, Jfhls Capt. Russell re
fused to do, and he was getting ready to leave
the port when I accidentally learned that the
commandant of the port had ordered that It the
San Joae tried to leave port with Itobertson on
hoard the fort should fire upon her. I told the
Captain of this, and he concluded to give Rob
" Before he did so, I telegraphed President
Zelayn and got permission from him to turn
KoberUon over to the American Minister. This
was done, and we left lurt a few-hours later
with itobertson tinder Minister Ilaker'a care.
When we arrived at Panama we learned from a
telegram that the woman who had been injured
would recover. I knew President .elaya well,
and 1 telegraphed htm all the tiarllculars of the
case and asked him to intercede for Itobertson.
Minister Baker also said he would look out for
Itobertson, and I guess If those two try to get
him out they will succeed. I have no doubt that
Robertson Is already on his way here. He will
know better than to do anv thing like that again

the United States receiving ship Minnesota, at fl
?:.10 o'clock last night mado a murderous at- :S
tack on Mrs. Margaret Fitzgerald of :130 Grand sfl
street, New Haven, on lioarrl tho steamboat O, ,H
II. Northam, lying at Peck slip. He cut her ' , H
severely on the neck and almut tho head with ' , 'H
razor, and then tried to cut his own throat. ;- i
The attack was mado In a stateroom aboard ' i
the steamer. In the presence of the woman's two afl
little children. ;''. :
Mrs. Fitzgerald arrived here from New Haven '( ,H
a week ago Friday, and went to stay with h ' vH
brother, Michael ltannan nf ,120 Cherry street. sl
Gorman, who hod known her In New Haven; ,. t; 9
got a week's furlough and also went to stay t lafl
with the Hannans, of whom he waa a friend-? ,: ,
He and Mrs. Fitzgerald were together constantly, ,; '
Tho woman intended to return home nn '; r afl
Saturday, but put It off until yesterday, at tho '! ; '1
request of her brother and Gorman. At 3 o'clock! Jfl
In the afternoon she started for tho boat with) ,) H
her two children. IB
Gorman and a neighbor nf thn Hannans, Pat. !lH
rick Carroll, went down with her to see her otti -j i 'jH
At tho pier Gorman bought her a stateroom; t i
ticket, and the party sat out on deck for ad j1 i ;-M
hour, when Carrolt left. 1 'il
Gorman remained, and at 8 o'clock In tha J , -H
evening ho went up with the woman and her y i ':
children to tho stateroom. They had not been 'kM
thcro many minutes when several of the officer". f.aV
of the boat heard screaming and cursing. ' ' .-'JaB
Capt. Hardy, whoso cabin is diagonally across ,H
tho passageway, ran ont and found that the! . , !M
noise camo from room fill, which ia tha one Gor - i H
man had got for Mrs. Fitzgerald. Tha Captain t
rushed to the room nnd found the door locked,. fl 'H
Ho pounded on the glass of the door, and il
presently he heard some ono fumbling at thai 9 a
key on the Insldo. Then, suddenly, the door 1 ' 'M
wa pulled back n few inches and a woman' 1 i H
bloody arm came nut. JB i JH
open. All tho time tho screaming went on, anil ,jl
also the man's curses. i -4! tsal
By forcing tho door steadily, tho Captain at, 91
last got It open far enough to pull the woman ill , tj
out. She w as bleeding from gashes In her neck, ,j ' "M
and nn her hands and arms. ill t
Her hnlr waa dishevelled and her clothing '
torn, nnd she was panting and wild-eyed.' Sha jl
sank tn tho floor of the passageway, and tha -jl !'
Captain lifted her and carried her down to tha il 'sHl
women's cabin. jl fl
Watchman Grant meanwhile ha1 comotnm- 4V iVaH
tiling up the stair from lielow. He opened tha I -iH
door of tho stateroom and got the two small , 'SH
children out. They were spattered with blood jl Ji-Hil
nnd speechless with terror. Grant then reen .1 ; iM
tered the stateroom. ' 1 I TH
Gorman stood with his hark against the fur- 1 HB
ther side. He, too, wa bleeding from a gash In m H
his throat and several cuts on the hands. Ha fl - 'lH
maitu a movement as If to escape. If 'iaaH
"Just you stay where you arel" yelled Grant, i Ufl
" You'll bo all right. Just you keep quiet." I TaH
Gorman stood where he was, and presently 'IHl
Policemen Thomas Lawler and John Fay of tho IK ' ''uHa.
Oak street station, who had been sent for In H ,
haste, came to Grant's assistance. They got I ; IBM
Gorman between them and marched him down a iflH
stairs and on the pier, where two ambulances B ,'
from the Chambers Street Hospital wero pre- C HB
ently ready. V
Th woman was put in ono and thn man In tha ;
other, and they wero. taken to tho hospital. II
Gorman' wounds wero found tn be not serious. m HI
so after they had been sown up he waa takon to I .
the Oak street station andlockod up on a charge 1 ' ''
of attempted suicide. jl Hl
Mm. Fitzgerald's wounds were more serious. fl ti'lfll
Sho hud cuts on the left sldo nf the throat and 1 fflH
cheek, on the bock of the head, and on thn ill ' Y-IB
hands. She had probably tried to seize thn Wj vlB
razor when she was attacked. She waa very II ,VflB
weak from loss of blood, but they say at the Jl i TJIH
hospital that she will recover. ,jj . UH
Mrs. Fitzgerald would make nn statement of I 3flH
bow It all happened. Gorman said that tho I . 'H
woman had attacked him and that he merely I vlflH
defended himself. Tho police do not believe 9 TflH
him, ' .'.j
Mrs. Hannan. the woman's sister-in-law. said ' -iflfll
last night that Gorman was an old friend of her H !
husband's. They were boys together in Llm- .-.
erlrk, Ireland, but had not seen much of each isflH
other In the past few years. 9Hfll
1 "Mngglo Fitzgerald," sho went nn. "wa L '1 !
married lit Ireland nine years ago. when sha f .AH
was 13 years old. Her husband, John Fitzger- 4flH
aid. Is a stone mason. They came to this coun- m . -
try and went to New Haven to live. , KiM
' Gorman boarded with them for nearly a year c t'lH
nnre. Her husband is now working nt Bristol,
It. I. He' been there for some time, I think, - IBj
nnd only went to New Haven onco a month to ffi
sen Ills wife. B sflBJ
" Gorman told me that he had a wlfo nnd two m ifBfll
children, and that they live at Bristol, where fll TflH
Fitzgerald Is working. I don't know about that, H .IH
though." H ffiBB
Mrs. Hannan could not explain the cutting. tU IBB.
i She suys Gorman was very fond of .Mrs. Kltz- H ''flflfl
geruld. and that he was Jealous of her. They H Mlflfl
I got along well enough together, however. Oor- vlfll
i man drank a great deal, and Mrs. Hannan Bay ' 'jBB
I she herself didn't like him. fl ' 'BB
i "On Thursday night," Mr. Hannan went on. BH
"Mrs. Fitzgerald went downstairs to call on a ' JvBBBJ
neighlsir. leaving Gorman alnno In the room 1 tiBH
where her things were. When she got back her 1 fBB.
satchel was cut oih-u and $T& whloh Gorman flfll
had given her tn keep for blm was gone. Gor- f yfll
man was gone, ton. I llflfl
"That's the only thing I can Imagine that I tfljl
they should have hail trouble about. But If 1 kiBll
Gorman took the money It waa his own." w Slflfl
The story of the officers on the boat differ 1 bill
l from that of Mrs. Hannan and Carroll. Thev 1 lH
I say that Gorman came ou the boat alone at 4 f ?flflfl
o'clock and bought the stateroom ticket, and f( ' Iflll
that he was not Joined by Mrs. Fitzgerald with I' '
hercldldreu until iliHO o'clock. U
Gorman has been in the United States navy for I BBJ
nineteen years, and for two yeart before that hn L
was In the British navy. He Is a short, stocky I- BBJ
man, with a sandy moustache. After being 1!
taken back to the station he seemed eager to h J BBJ
make some explanation. f SBBJ
"It was this way," he declared at last. "I f )
said loher. 'Maggie, this Is the last time you'll f ;BBJ
sen me nn earth,' and then she slashed at me." I;
Mrs. Fitzgerald Is comely. Her children are h 'BBJ
girls, one tl years old and the other S. They art) li ,-
now with Mrs. Hannan. t! ,'
