lives with her husband, Henry J. Ilarnor, pro

titrated trains. It la surmised that she beoame
S acquainted with Golden on her trips up and
down town. They bar been seen together
from time to time for several months.
Where they met yesterday evening Is not
known, but thsr were seen together In sererkl
restaurants and drinking places about
Harlem. Golden had been drinking pretty
heavily when, at half past 7 o'clock,
they went up on the down-town station
at 13Bth street. There they encaged In an ani
mated convsrsation, which apparently had to
do mainly with the man's request that
the woman should go somewhere with
him and her refusal to agree to this.
Trains stopped and went on, and still
the discussion continued. Two or three times
Mrs. Ilarnor made aatt to board one of .the
trains, but her companion dissuaded her each
time. Finally they sat down on a bench there
to hare It out.
"I'm going to take the next train down," Ed
ward Kirk, the ticket chopper, heard the wo
man say.
"Then you'TO decided that you won't go?"
aiked Golden.
Fes, l're decided; I decided half an hour
iso," rer"ed the woman.
Evidently this disconcerted Golden, for ho
arose and walked nlong the platform with his
head bent. At the further end his companion
Joined him and said something, to which he re
turned: "You said you wouldn't go, and If that's so,
that settles It. Won't you chance your mind f"
"No, I won't." said she with some bitterness
In her voice. " I'm not going anywhere except
home, and I'm going there now."
Perhaps she had decided not to wait for the
train, for she started toward the exit. Golden
stood still for a moment, but It was only
for a moment. Hardly had Sirs. Havnnr
taken half a dozen steps when he
whipped a pistol out of his pocket and
' without pause for aim, pulled the trigger. The
i S ballet flew wild. LIko a flash the woman
I whirled about, lifting her hands toward Mm In
' I supplication, but there was no mercy In his
( madness. Again he fired. One of the
outstretched bands fell to her side,
broken and blesdlng. Then she turned
snd with a cry started to rnn, but stumbled and
lurched for" rd. Probably that stumble tared
Ih erllfe. The bullet that would otherwise hare
Jodged in her brain struck nboro the left ear,
lore through the scalp, and came out at the top
cf the heitd. She fell, corertng her head with
with her hands.
It was all done within the time that It takes
j inn to make up his mind to an action. In
that second or two Kirk, the ticket-chopper,
had made up his mind to action, and to
action demanding not a little courage,
lie ran straight at the man with
the pistol. struck tho weapon uo,
and clinched. Probably Golden would not hare
shot at him any war. as he seemed to make no
effort to point his weapon, but Kirk didn't
know that when he made his charge. From
Inside the ticket office Ticket Seller Du
gan watched the struggle that followed
without daring to run out and take
part in It, lest thieves should take ad-
Irantage of his absence to get away with the un
guarded money. He saw the two men swaying
to and fro In their straggle for mastery. It
seemed that In the sndden cllncb. Golden had
J got the better hold, for his opponent was being
slowty forced orer.
"Catth him lower." yelled Dngan to the
ticket chopper. "You can bold him that war,
and there'll be a train here in half a minute,
y Get him around the legs."
Already the trembling of the platform an-
A nounced an approaching train: two trains, ror
J one ou the up-town track was as close aa the
i down-bound train. Hearing Dagan's shouted
ft sdrlce. Kirk broke his hold and gare a
chance which Golden seized. A quick leap
backward on the part of the conductor
1 broke his opponent's hold. Then, as Kirk.
I with the Instrument of combat, stooped to re-
I csire the expected attack, the other Jumped
I clear ot the platform to the track. Instantly
the paslon of battle within Kirk turned to ter
ror for a fellow man facing a terrible death.
"Hon. run across 1" he shrieked. "The train."
lint Golden was already running across. 1 here
was time for him to hare pone in front of the up
bound train nn the further track and climbed
aboard. With his foot on tho track and safety a
short yard beyond, hn stopped. Whether he
then and there determined upon the refuge of
suicl'le will nerer be known, but it looked so
to Kirk. Two steps and a dire forward, and
he Isy across the down track, barely tiro
)ards In front of the locomotive. Once
more Kirk rushed forward, this time
to save, but there was no chance. The
trsln was too close. He barely checked
himself In tlmo total e his own life. The loco
motive, the drat car. nnd the front trnck of the
second car passed oier (inlden's chest and ab
domen, killing him Instantly. Kirk staggered
back shrieking, and his cries brought the passen
gers out upon Hie platform in a cwarm.
They taw tho ticket chopper alternately
wrlncing nls hands and pointing down to
tbe truck with half-Intelligible words,
snd. looking down, there, they saw a
huddled mass of black, with crlmsnu
splotches about It. Bomo of them saw In
the i mrn's waiting room a woman rocking her
self to and fro on a bench. There was blood on
her. too. .Mrs. Harmon had got to her feet,
stareered to the room, and fallen there.

Shortly after 2 o'clock yesterday morning Po
liceman Bharpe of the East Fifty-first street
station saw a countrified looking boy wandering
aimlessly along Madison avenue near Forty
second street. As the lad passed the bluecoat a
gust of wind caught the flying ends ot his light
alpaca coat, exposing to the poltosman's view a
gleam ot steel at the boy's waist. Bharpe
headed oft the boy, asking who ha was and
what business he had wandering about the
streets at such an early hour dt the morning.
"My name's Howard Bronson," said tha boy,
"and I'm only taking In tha sights. I came
from Mexloo on Monday, and, never having
been In New York before, about everything .in
terests me, I've Just walked down from Central
"But what hare you there f asked the polios
man, noddles; toward the belt that young
Branson wore undar his oost.
Tha boy threw back theooat carelessly.
"Oh. only my shooting outfit," said he. "Vrt
carried It ever since I was 0 years old. It won't
hurt any one, I assure you,"
But the policeman thought It would. Thrust
In the broad leather belt was a brace of 32
oallbre nickel-plated revolvers and a bowla
knife with a blade eight lnohe long.
"Are they loaded!" he asked, pointing to tha
" Why. yea," replied tha boy. " bnt I dont pro
pose to do any shooting np hers. You see, I'm
carrying them more for companionship than
anything else. On father's ranoh I always kept
them by me."
Although the policeman dtdVt think the lad
was a particularly dangerous customer, ho took
him to the station house, so the sergeant could
decide whether or not the carrying oi two re
volvers and a bowle knife was a violation of the
city ordinance. ....
The sergeant thought that It was. butdeolded
to re.'er the question to a polloe magistrate, to
whom the prisoner could repeat his story.
When tho Yorkvllle Police Court opened yes
terday morning young Brnnson was one of the
first prisoners arraigned before Magistrate Molt.
When Branson's turn came the Magistrate
eyed him sternly through a big pair of spec
tacles, ' Well, what has ho been doing?" ha asked
tho policeman. . .
Hbarpe laid the brace of revolvers anij the
bowle knlfo on the desk.
" Carrylug these in the street," said he. The
Magistrate examined the arsenal gingerly.
Then he tnrnou tu the youthful prisoner.
" What business have you to be carrying
those r" he asked sharply. "Whero did you
come from any way r"
Uronson told him. He also added that his
father formerly owned a ranoh In Mexloo, but
having sold it, he had decided to send him to the
Naval Training bchool at Newport- He said
that he left Mexico two weeks ago for Newport,
and never having seen Now York he had slopped
over a few days to see the sights.
The Magistrate grunted.
" What's that to do with these weaponsT"
said he, I didn't ask you about Newport. What
1 want to know Is. what do you mean by violat
ing the law In this manner? '
"Your Honor," replied young Branson, "I had
no Idea that I was violating the law. In
Mexico "
" But this isn't Mexico, and If you didn't know
the law you should have known it," said the
Magistrate. " I am placed here to see that the
laws are enforced, and I've a good mlua to fine
you $10 for each weapon the policeman found
qq you. What would you say to that?"
But I haven't that much money," aald the
prisoner. "I've a check fortoandsomeabange,
and I'm willing to gle that "
" He was peaceable when I arrested him," In
terrupted the policeman, "and "
" Now I'm going to be lenient with you,"
broke in tho Mutflstrnle. "and I'll only fine
you $10 for the lot. You hare no business to
be carrying an arenal about the city, and It
you don't pay the fine you'll be locked up."
As young Bronon couldn't pay the fin he
was locked In a cell in the Yorkrllle prison.
"l'mjustl" years old," he said to a reporter
later, "and as I'o Ured on a ranch all my life,
I thought it was all right to carry my firearms.
1 would willingly nam paid what money I hare,
but I haven't a friend In the city, and now I
suppose I'll be locked np for a wrek or so. Tho
Judge didn't look like a mau who would trip a
fellow up In that way. Of course. It was very
kind of lilin not lo tine me the $30, but I think
he was hard on me all tho same."
Unless the $10 fine is paid by some good
Samaritan before 0 o'clock this morning,
Branson will be sent to the workhouse.
Magistrate Molt rlncd a lad named James Mo
Gougb $3 for bathing at the foot ot East Twenty-first
street. His mother, a widow with six
children, offered $3, and said the boy would
lose his place If sent to prison. The Magistrate
refused to abate the fine. It was paid by a
woman who sympathized with the lad.

The will of John Morlarty divides his estate
equally between his nephew, John J. Morlarty,
and John's mother, Mary A., who Is the wife of
the testator's brother Thaddeus.
Tho petition sets forth that the widow, Mary
Morlarty, resides at 05 East Tenth street, but
there is no provision whatever mado for her In
the will.
Thaddeus Morlarty said last night that his
brother had decldad to make his will In the
form In which It existed a year ago, although
be had protested against it.
"I am. however, advised by my lawyers," he
said, " that the widow can not be deprived of
her right of dower In the real estate, and this
constitutes the greater part of the estate. If
ray advice Is followed In the settlement every
body concerned will be evontually satisfied."
Mr. Mortally said he cuuld not estimate the
value of the estate, but that It was not a large
one. The real estate consisted of lots on WasTi
inelon Heights, be said, and of a building on
Twenty-third street.
The widow. Mrs. Mary Morlarty. was not at
her home last night, and ber neighbors said he
had been away evcrslnce her husband's funeral.
Whatever tho cause of the trouble between
the couple was It had not led to a separation,
for they lived together up to tho time of Mr.
Morlaty's death, and he died at home. He was
the proprietor ot a furniture store at 1 Fourth
avenue, and his brothers are In the same busi
ness In Twenty-third street.

WABniNOToit, July 10. Commander Sperry
and Constructor Bowles at the New York Navy
Yard have been rapped severely by Secretary
Herbert for their quarrels, which led to a court
ot Inquiry and a delay In completing the mon
itor Puritan. Both officers are held responsible
for the charges and counter-charges preferred,
and each Is informed that such conduct on his
part has received the condemnation of the de
partment. Secretary Herbert also reminds the
bureaus of ordnance and construction thnt
petty difficulties between them does not tend to
advance the Interest of the service, and will be
treated severely It there are repetitions of the
caso of Sperry against Bowles. In reviewing
the case, Mr. Herbert has this to say:
"Mere suspicion does not warrant one officer
to make a charge ot fraud Involving a brother
off! per."
The department fully endorses the statement
of the court that Sperry was too precipitate in
his action, nnd tne Secretary "gravely repro
bates Commander Sperry's conduct In the
The Secretary quotes from the findings of the
court that "this controversy has beeu con
ducted by both parties with a degree of feeling
not properly attaohed to a consideration of the
fact" In issue and with the use ot expressions
and Implications derogatory to the methods of
the opposing party, unnecessary to the inquiry
and hurtful to the orderly and prompt dis
charge of the business of the Government.
This mutual feeling seems to have had ample
resnlts In the conduct of the work Itself,"
Tho department approves this finding. In
transferring Sperry from duly at the New York
jard as ordnance officer to equipment officer,
the Secretary remarks:
" It Is intolerable that, through obstinacy and
wilfulness, two officers whose duties call for co
operation should by their quarrels delay the
work In hand and thus scandalize the service.
Such conduct the department deems gravely

Onravronr. July 10. Fireworks and a ball
at tbs Manhattan House, to say nothing ot hun.
dreds of pretty girls, kept the yachtsmen at
anohor In Shelter Island yesterday afternoon
and to-day, thongh the sun was shining and a
fine breeze swept across the harbor. Not a sail
was hoisted, and the wind was wasted so far aa
the yachtsmen were concerned. In the morning
Vice-Commodore and Mrs. N. T. Adams enter
tained the children on the yachts accompany
ing the Atlantlo fleet, on board tho Suohem,
with day fireworks, balloons, and a light lunch
eon. Later In tho day there wore gig, dingy,
and naphtha launch races.
The Hegatta Committee, which consists
of John L. miss, William I.. Uerrlsh,
Louts J. Jackson, and Major Oeorgo
W. McNulty, together with Commodore
Oeorgo J. Gould, Vice-Commodore F. T.
Adams, Hear Commodore John H. Hannn, and
Fleet Captain T. II. Watson, have worked early
and late for the success of tho cruise, and tho
general opinion seems to be mat. In spite of fogs,
calms, and protests, this has been line of the
most successful affairs of Its kind ever held by
the club.
Commodore and Mrs. Gould entertained tbe
Regatta Committee, together with Fleet Capt.
T. H. Watson, Fleet Kurgeon W. D. Townscnd,
Miss Turnbuil, Miss F. T. Adams, and Miss
Maplesden. at luncheon on tho Atalanta to-day.
The races were very Interesting. The first
event called was the dingy race. Five boats
camo to the line. They wore from the Sachem,
Ulendoner, Uvlra, Amorlla, and Tigress. The
coursewas around a slakelioat anchored aquar
ter of a mile anay and back to the finishing
line between tha Atalanta and the bachem.
The boats ware to leave the stitkebnal on the
port hand. Petersen, the llvira's man. quickly
led, but he turned the stako the wrong way and
was disqualified. The Sachem won. with Olcn
doveer second. These were tbe only two to go
the right course.
In a handicap gig lace, tho Atalanta's six
oared gig, a big, heavy hunt; tho Narada'a five
oared gig, and the Amurlta's light racing
tour-oared gig started. The Amorlla and Ata
lanta gigs raced for a special prire. The Am
orlta tried to cros tho Narada'a bow soon after
the start. The Narnda won, Amorita was sec
ond, and Atalanta third. On account of being
such a light boat, the Amorita was to give 100
yards to the Atalanta at the finish. She only
finished six feet ahead, so the Atalanta won.
Ten men started In tho aoo-yard swimming
race. It was a fine contest, nnd was won by the
Naradas representative by a head. The Colonla's
man was second and the Cavalier's third.
The tub race caused lots of fun. Two men
started from tbe Atalanta and two from the
Sachem. They had a hard Job to sit in their
tubs, which persisted In filling and slnkintr.
The first nnd second prizes went to tbe Atalanta
and tbe third tn the bachem.
bev un naphtha launches raced over a one-mile
course. The special prize was the Embla flag. The
bachem launch won by one second. Talisman's
launch was eleven seconds ahead of the llln
warra's launch, which was third. Then came
the Embla. Amorita, Edith, and Huron.
The special prize for the pair-oared gig race
was the acheni flag. It was won by the hmbla,
Jllawarrawas second, and Viator third. The
other starters were the Huron and Gavlota.
Only ono boat enme to the lino for the four
oared gig race, this was from the bachem. The
special prire wae the Atalanta flag.
Tbeso flags will be very handsome. The club
flag, the private signal of the yacht, and the
flag officers' flag will be painted on a white silk
banner, which will be mounted on a mahogany
stick with a brass Lnucklo ou the top. 'I he
men who were fortunate enough to win will be
amply repaid for their afternoon's work, nearly
J500 being subscribed by the flag officers, the
fleet Captains, and the club, which will be di
vided proportionately among the men In the
Cant. Dlnon nnd Fourteen afen SJono to
Take the llont Home.
At last something of a definite nature Is
known about the English yacht Valkyrie III.
She Is still the property of Lord Dunraven and
bis associates, and she Is to be taken back to
England Just as soon as ber stores can be placed
on board and her sails rigc rd for the run. This
Is the information given to The Su.v last night
by Capt. William John Dixon, the veteran
yachtsman and sailor, who arrived on the
American line steamer St, Louis, accompanied
by his first and second officer and twelve seamen.
The old sailor, who was described to The SON
reporter by one of the ship's officers as rosom
bllng a German baron, was foundtroillng about
the pier looking for a revenue officer and Inci
dentally keeping a sharp weather eye on a var
nished shoel-lron valise and his chronometer,
which was packed In a neat leather case. He
also had a big bundle of churls.
With the steamer mail he received a letter
from II. Maitlaud Kersey, telling him that ell
arrangements had boen mndu to take himself
and men at onco lo the Valkjrlc, and that a tug
would be In waiting nt the pier, Tho tug
Pulver was Indeed on hand, but some one had
failed to get the requisite henlth permit for the
seamen from the Ellis Island olllclals.and at the
lasl moment the captain had to decide to re
main on board the M. Louis fur the night. He
said regarding the Valkyrie:
" Yes, 1 am here to lake hor back, and will
start Just as soon as 1 ran get her stores on
board for the voj ago. I hope to be ablo to get
away next Monday, and if not then why on
Tuesday sure, lilid not come over here to live
on the boat, but to take her home, and shall not
waste auy time.
" What will be done with her on the other
side Well, sho Is to bo taken at once to the
Clyde, nnd there sho will he taken out and
cleaned nnd made ready for racing. If shoenn
be got ready In time, why she will ba raced
against the Meteor, the German Empornr's new
boat, and the Prince of Wales's llrittanla In ths
Conos regatta. If she Is not ready for that
she will, I think, be soon in the Mediterranean.
That Is all I know about hor. Sho still belongs
to Lord Dunraven. At least, I received my
orders from him."
Whllo Capt, Dixon Is a veteran seaman, nnd
has sailed almost everywhere, he hns never
commanded a yacht In this country. When
ked If ho had ever been in America before, he
threw aqtilz7ical look at the speaker and raid;
"Have i ever been hore before? Why, bless
your heart. I run tho blockade here during our
war. nnd was chased by Federal boats back into
Spanish waters. The name of the blockade
runner was the Illack Adder."
The names of tho Valkv no's crow are: First
male, J, Fnirweather; second mate, W. Dixon;
Murphy, Peterson, Harbour, Hasklns. Alderney,
Johnson, Straus, Itasminsuu, Wagslrnm, and
Mano, The steward will be. Benson. It Is mi
llers I nod that nearly nil of tho stores necessary
for the voyage are already nn board the host,
the articles having boon quietly placed there
during the past few wcoks by Mr. Kersey's
order. T he suires lncludu a stove fur tho galley.

mnnderCowles, naval attache of the American is!
Embassy; Gen. Sklddy, Judge Uowland, and fri
tho prominent competitors in the regatta. MflH
Commander Cowles made a speech. In ths mH
course of which he said ho believed that Yale ('I !
would again compete at Henley, and would jf Msi
profit by their experience of this year. Tha tt1l
Americans, ho added, had been beaten bra good Vt i
crow, but their defeat had been tempered by ii'
the hospitality the English knew so welt how to I
dispense, !
Chairman Jackson eulogized the Yale man aa J
sportsmen and excellent companions. Bo ex- j jV
pressed tbe hope that they would return to j fij-B
England and capture the oup. ln9il
Capt. Tread way. In reply, said he did not wish Klll'BI
to make one excuse for the Yale crew losing. mSfl
The climate, he added, hod nothing to do with "wl'l'B
the men's defeat, as It was as goo d as that to '''tr ?S'
which they wero acoustomed. He ascribed itllu-B
whatever success tbey had had to Coach Cook's IrS-fl
study of English rowing. Bf
Tho dinner was a most enjoyable one, and tho 9 lit I
Americans took advantage of the occasion to Ijil
again express their appreciation of the many KB
courtesies they bad received while In England, K
both from the publlo generally and their com- llsi
peiltora in the regatta. They had nothing but trT9
iralse for the sportsmanlike qualities displayed &4i
ly all the English oarsmen with whom they , If J AH
have come In contact. ' !f B
The Field will to-morrow publish an editorial IafH
eulogizing tbe Yale crew. It dwells upon their !n !
remarkable modesty and their ambition to (!!:
learn. The paper says that, while the English "
oarsmen showed the visitors the vast advantage 1 1 .!
of a long body swing and the use of tbe loins, it "! lllflH
freely admits that the Yale men showed a pre- itiH
cislon and uniformity ot action In a higher de- It B
freo than was seen In any one of the sixty Eng. I H
ish crews who took part In the races at Henley. if !

Local athletes were Intensely Interested In 'eTi
the details furnished by Tnn Sux yesterday '!
regarding tha wholesale suspension cf B:(l!sh ' '"pi
champions by tbe Southern Counties A. A. of ai
England. They had previously been hoping for 19J
an International match this fall on the lines laid K H
down by the New York A. C. a couple of months !
ago In Its correspondence with E. C. Bredln, !'
London A. C. It was then proposed to have av ;'
series of duels Bradley vs. Wefers, Shaw vs. !!
Chase. Dacon vs. Conneff, and Bredln vs. Kil- j '
Patrick. j
This tourney, which promised to be the sens- ,
tlon of the decade, is now, of course, cancelled, '
Uredln being on the disabled list, while Bradley ll
and Baoon are on tha shelf for the time being, ;'.
at least. Cable despatches tram tho other stda - f f"si
Indicate that Bacon is anxious to meet Conneff " '"'!
on a professional basts, and it Is quite possible (, Ik'flH
that the little irlsn-Amerlcan may elect , 4
to cancel his amateur certificate before 4
the season ends and beard tbo British r,t iffl
crack on his own ground and terms. Con- 'jjaM
neff, however, like other geniuses, builds most ?I1
ot bis castles on sand, and the recent rumors ( 'tiM
of his contemplated foreign trip are only taken , 2 lia
rum prano talis by the initiated. In proper I jlfl
hands and thoroughly fit Conneff would nn- V '
doubtedly put up a series of great races against 1 j mm
Bacon, and although his place In the amateur rSHJH
ranks here would be hard to fill, he has many r J -fSM
shrewd friends who would like to see him maka I ff '
something out of the game before be joins tha ui Mm
"has been" ranks. ,' ,a!
The London wirtsman states that A. R. i tHM
Downer. Bradley's most noted old-country . yi
rival, has declared openly for professionalism, )i ml
and that he will make his dAbut next month In 'ilflH
the cash division as an opponent to a cyclist v ,a
who will have to mount unassisted, the distance 139
of the race to be 220 yards. Downer's admirers rX
regret the news, aa they hold him to be a grade ii t
above hlppodromlng. Wllh his phonnmenal '
turn of speed be might be more at home in a u '!
bbeffleld handicap, where a winner can gather '
money to burn If his " gaffer" does not absorb B Jjjfl
the pile, and where tbe chances of scoring ars W ''MM
so good thai "paper" record holders like Potion, Vj AWg
Donovan car. earn brackets occasionally. Dow. Iatt
ner, however, explains that his intense love of UKca
the game will not permit htm to remain passive r,Btl
for any length of time, and that he feels com- ililil
pelle-d to jump at the first offer. Wim
There is undoubtedly a big and profitable field Kil
before Downer if he does not drift Into the imim
circus game and lose his prestige In tbe shuttle, IHji'l
but wltn Bacon it Is different, as tbe ex-chnra- ' x'Sim
plon mile runner has no peer la the atbletlo 'SSSi
world, bar Conneff. and ho will probably be left 1 jig;
severely alone unless he offers heart-break- j $Nj;
Ing handicaps to tho rank and file. Falling to 1 vS;
gei u a match In his own country he would bo , ' jSI
conferring a public favor by coming out hero in
for u season and bursting up iho monopoly l'm
which Is reducing athletics to a farce on ths ligj
Caledonian professional circuit. i.Si
The unlooked-for action of the English ath- U
lellc censors will probably lead to n very Inter- i'h
estlng climax, and further developments ars dp
awaited with feverish Interest by the practical Mj
and theoretical athletes of this country and .'' W
