Washington, Oct. 7. The contract for tho
walls of the new double bnrraoks at Fort Win
gato calls for Iholr completion by Oct. 10, and
work has goni on so vigorously that bufore
winter aes in tho troops may be ablo to occupy
When the destructive flro occurred at that
pott, several months ago, thoro was some
talk of abandoning It, or at least of not at
tempting to mako up for tha loses suffered.
But Fort Wlngato occupies a very lmprotant
site, being near the southorn boundary of tha
Navajo rescrvatlou In New Mexico. Gen.
McCook, who commanded thn Department of
tho Colorado thrco yoara ago, noted then that
lis Importance Increased each year, and urgod
that It be enlarged to a regimental post. Tho
- ground, tin said, was favorable for the en
largement, and tho water supply of good
quality and ,'abundant. The burned barracks
wero built In 1870, and a record, which had
been deposited at the tlmo shows that Major
W, li. Price thon commanded tho post, with
portions of tho Eighth Cavalry and the Fif
teenth Infantry ns the garrison. Gen. Gotty
commanding tho district of New Mexico.
But whllo the ravages of tlmo are shown by
the list of officers then at tho post, of whom
only a third are now In service, a still moro
Intores'.lng historic reference was made by
Gen. Cnrr In his report of soven years ago,
on assuming command of what was then tho
district of Now Mexico, with headquarters nt
Fort Wlnuate. "In looking over the roc
ords In Headquarters Office," says this offi
cer, "I am struck with the names of men
prominent before and slnco thu war. as well a
of those not so colobrated, but whose memo

that a' out a score of Navajo and .unl Indi

In the crowd which thronged the platform at
the New York end of tho bridge shortly after
midnight yesterday wore threo persons who
attracted tho attention of the other passengers
the moment they reached tho top of tho stairs.
One was a girl, young and pretty, but conspicu
ous as to dress. Sho wore a big Gainsborough
hat oovered with ribbons and feathers, a black
cloth dross, and an astrakhan cane. Iter
companion was a swarthy young man with
an Alpine hat and a light coat. Ills eyes,
hair, and mustache wero Jet blaok, and
altogether he was rather good looking.
Tho third one of the party was a young
man, who came up the stairs behind
the first two. Ho didn't say a word to either,
and tho others didn't speak to him. It was evi
dent that he was following thum, however, and
also that they knew he wns, for try as they
would to loso him in tho crowd, which had been
waiting over half an hour for a train, they could
not get out of his sight. He was right at tholr
side everywhere they turned, so they finally
gavo up trying to dodge him and stood still. Ho
ranged himself alongside of tho woman's com
panion, and thero they stood glaring at each
other. It was tho woman who broke tho silonro.
" For God's sake, Fred, don't make a spectaclo
of me." she said to tho man who had been fol
lowing. Thoro wero tears In her eyes as sho spoke,
and her escort cbowed his mustache savagely
and made a move which the other man regarded
as hostile, for he clenched his fist and drew
back his arm. He made no response, however,
to the girl's appeal. Ho just looked scornfully
at her companion, who glared back for a mo
ment, and then turned and begnn talking ex
citedly to tho girl.
This sort of thing went on fur fifteen minutes,
and then the bridge authorities sent ovortwo
enrs to tako back a crowd which couldn't hao
been accommodated in half n dozen. Tho girl
nnd her companion made n rush for tho gate ns
soon as the car stopped, but the other chnp was
right at their heels nnd got on with them. The
gates were then slammed shut and the train
started. All the wav over the men glnred at
each other. The oilier passengers wero Inter
' rsted nnd offored various explanations fur tho
"The woman's this other fellow's wife." said
ono In a hlspcr, "and he'n caught her out with
some other man."
"Nonsense !" said a man In the rear of tho
car. "ho'e her brother, and he mistrusts tho
fellow she's out with, mid Isn't going to leave
her alone until she gets home."
There wore other coimntints loud euough for
the trio under di-cussum to honr. but they paid
no attention to anyone but themselves. Tho
girl looked out of thu window; the meu kept
looking hard at each other.
When the party got oul ot tho car at the
Brooklj ti end. a number of peoplo followed to
see thu fight which they thought was (timing.
Tho girl and her companion walked down to
bunds street, tne tecond man kept close at Ihelr
heele. while the speetators brought up tho rear.
The first man hailed a car and put the girl on
It. The other followed, whereupon the first
signalled the conductor M stop and got out
with Iho girl, thu other still following. 'Ihero
was more glaring then, and he of tho dark
mustache proceeded to take off his coat.
"Now theie will be a tight," said n spectator,
but there wasn't, for the girl Induced thu man
tonut his coat on again.
Then the couple held a consultation, and
when a car came along the girl got on alone.
Her companion mado no attempt to follow her.
but tho other man did. lie Jumped on the car
and away It startod.Vavlng he of theswarthv
' countenance on the curb. This would have
been the end of tne .v hole affair but for the fnet
I that the man who had managed his shadowing
I so well couldn't reslsl the temptation to
1 triumph a bit. So he leaned oxer the rear dash-
I board and twirled his lingers at the ntner chap.
Tho man In the road ran after the ear and
I called on the other fellow to comu do n and
light. Number two promptly obei ed, but while
they were ihtowlneolt their coats tho girl gut
out of the car and. grabbing her lato compan
ion, induced him to keep quIoL Tneu she went
oxer to number two.
"Aro you going yonr own way or not?" she
asked. ,. ,
"Your way Is my way until you get home,
Without another word sho crossed tho stroet
townere two bridge policemen were standing.
The two men followed.
"This man Is following me." she said. 'He
has followed me all tho waj from Ncv lork.
He is trying todraw ray escort Into n il :ht.'
"Are you tollowlng these people? neked the
"Yes, I am." replied the voung man.
"Have you any right tut"
" I hax e the right ot a brother to see that this
dirty scoundrel doesn't succeed in what he's
trvlng to do."
" Is ho your brother ? asked tho policeman of
" He is." she replied. " But I am 25 years old
and can take care of myself. Ha has no right
"Well." said thn policeman to tho hrother.
"you mav be right enough, but this girl is en
titled to freedom, and you'll hau to let her
alone." , , ...
"I shall follow her unless you arrest me,"
aid thn itunir man.
"Oil, no, you won't," said the policeman.
"You'll go right back to New York, where yon
came from." and he took the brother by the
arm and led hlui Into the depot. Thon .mother
street cur came along, and the girl and beresiort
got on It and were whisked awnj in n moment.
The crowd thut was waiting for the light
"tiosh!" said one spectator who seemed moro
disappointed than the others, "that would have
been a peneh of a llirhl If they'd user come to
' gether. Whenever jou nee two men thai can
go as long as they did without spcaklug a word
or making a bluff, you can bet they'te got sand

Inenntty the Defence In the Trial at Horn,
SoMrnvitXB, N. J.. Oct 7. In to-day's pro
ceedlngs ot tho Hodgett murder trial In the
Somerset Court proof xvas offered that Elmer
Claxvton. tho boy who shot down Harry Hodgett
at tho door of his cottago near Watchung
Mountain, is either an abnormal or Insano crea
ture. David Bolmor. young Clnwson's stopfather,
told of the premeditation of tho crime nnd that
tho boy went so far as to beijueath his earthly
possessions to different members nf the family
on the day before the murdor, "I wns oul In
the garden xvhen Elmer rode up on his xvheel
tho Thursday before the murder," said Bolmer
to the Court. "I had not seen him for quite a
spell, and he talked with me about himself and
his doings, nnd finally said 'Harry Hodgett bus
been berating me and mother again, and I havo
got to shoot him.'"
"'J.Irboy.' said I. 'don't talk that way. If
you hurt Harry Hodgett they will send you to
Slate prison for life, and It you kill him they
will hang you.' He xvas nulet for a time after I
said I his. Then ho exclaimed: 'Well, I have
got to shoot him!' At breakfast the next morn
inghesaiil to my wife: '.Mother, this is the
lust time 1 xvlll eat at your table. Afler
1 am gone I want brother Charley to haxo
my bicycle and brother Raymond to
havo my best clothes, and yonr father
c.xn havo my big xvoollen overcoat nnd the rnzor
)nu will find In the uocket ' He xxas quiet after
that, but left our place on the afternoon before
the murder, vowing he xxas going to shoot
liodgelt. 1 did not attempt to stay him or givo
xrarning. as he often talked foolish, and I did
not llnnk he would do It."
Clnwson's brother Charles, who works for
Parmer Paulson, near Burnt Mills, testified
that Timer stooped at the Paulson farm on his
way to Ilodgeit's, and told him that he was
going to knock at Ilodgeit's door, and when
ll.Klett made his appearance lie xvas going to
shoot him. Then he xras going to ride on his
wheel to Hernsrdsville. xrhcre a man had prom
ised to aid him in going to sea.
Mlnniix Knrnbourgh, tvho said she xvas Claxv
son' aunt, xvas tne tlrst Importnnt xxltnessput
on the stand by the defence to prove the do'b
insanity. The witness said that Clawson's
grandfather had "uueer spells," In his hallu
cinations he frequently called upon members of
thn family to look at Imaginary cats and birds
that xvere In the air. He xxas qui-er up to the
time of his death. Sirs. Kernbourgh further
Haled that tho strain of Insanity descended
thrnuch several generations.
Sirs. Bolmer, 1 lawson's mother, paid that In
childhood he hud beeu mulcted with scarlet
fexer aud other diseases, wilch left hint help
less for two ye.irs. Besides, he had queer spells
like those manifested by his grandfather. At
times she had found him In the garden Jump
ing on all fours like a cat. When she asked
him xvhy he acted so he would reply seriously
that he was trying to catch the birds Hying
about his head.
On the morning before the murder he xvalkcd
to the barn to milk the rows. On the way he
Mopped suddenly, and pointing straight before
him. shouted: "hee that bird coming for us."
She assured him there was no bird, nnd he re
plied: "Oh. n-ver mind, 1 hax'o got to shoot

Nkw Bitun8Wi0K, Oct. 7. William Wolff, a
butcher ot this place, has been fattening up a
halt for the market for tho past few months.
Yesterday he arranged with Rabbi Bcrs to havo
the animal slaughtered according to tho rites of
the Jewish Church, and at an early hour this
morning started with It for a slaughter house a
doren blocks nwny, where tho rabbi was to meet
him and convert the bull Into choice etoaks and
Wolff was leading the animal along by about
ten feet of rope, nttachrd to his horns, xvhen n
small boy who xvas passing picked up a stone
and threw It nt the bull. The stono hit
the animal In tho nose, and with a
snort of rngo tt whirled around, yanking
Wolff off his feet so suddenly thnt ho
didn't realtzo what had happened to him until
he found himself being dragged along the ground
nt a twenty-mile nn hour speed. Then he let go
of the rope nnd tho bull proceeded nt a moro
modnrato gait In thodlicctlon of Gcnrpo street.
It had reached the house of John Carpentor,
xvhen tt suddenly discovered a small boy coming
down tho ro.ul on a bicycle.
A moment Inter the small boy was snaring
through the air toxxard tho south, whllo tho
bull xxas making repealed chargosnt. thu xx linden

rid himself of the bicxele w hlch xvas Impaled on

tion xvhon .Mr. Wnlll, followed by about
a hundred citizens who had seen Ills remarka
ble contortions xvhen the bull hruku axxay, i iimo
running up. Sir. Wolff cautiously approached,
and, grabbing the rope, made It fast to the
fence. Then he retruatid to think over a plan
of action which would lund the bull surely in
the slaughter house.
He xxas still thinking It ox-cr when SInynr
Williamson and txxo policemen ciuno along.
The people In the vicinity prolestcd to hlui. and
theSloynr nnnounrtd thai the bull must hu
killed. Wnllf was perfectly willing to bine tho
animal slaughtered right there, hut Insisted 011
having a ra'ihl to 'do thu Job. t-o a messenger
xvas despatched lo the slaughter house, and In a
few minutes Rnbhl Bers hnvo In sight with a
bultahlo nullll of knives.
In the mean time the news that n bull wna to
bu slaughtered on the public highway hid
drawn a grout rrnxvd lo the spot. The bull,
qulturalm by this time, stood peacefully b the
teuco. chouing o.'iool thMpneumatlu tires of the
Rabbi Bers sl7ed him up nnd told Sir. Wolff
not to worry about the hull, as It xvould soon bo
killed. Then there xvas a suddeu howl from thu
crowd, fnllnxved by the snap of the rope, and
Mr. Wolff felt himself sailing gracefully oxer
the fence. Impelled by the bull's horns.
