The Ttin or (he Discredited Jewish missionary Condly Protested HM Innocence Duriar tho Service Veeterday Morning at Iks firth Avenuo rreshyterlaa Church Pnt Out. Mrs. Wnrszawiak, tbo wife of Herman Warszawtck, tho converted Hussion Jow who hm been doing missionary work among his raco i on the oust side, and who wm suspended from tho communion of tho Fifth Avcnuo Presby- I torlan Church recently for gambling, mndo n scene in tho church yesterday morning when tho judgment was ttnnouneotl. nnd the wai forcibly ejected from tho building. Tho ltor. John Hall, pastor of tho church, who remained Warszaw lak's Btanc.hcst ndvocuto until thocvl donco of his Immoral conduct seemed overwhelm ing, was not present. Ho exchanged pulpits for tho occasion with tho Her. Hngh Prltchnrd of the Alexander Chapel in King street. Dr. Hall' primary reason for doing this was that his grandchild died on Saturday nnd ho did not feel cqutrt to conducting tho services In his own church. It had been arranged, too, that the Announcement of Wnrsrawiak's suspension should bo read, nnd It W likely that Dr. Hall did not wish to bo present on that account. No one, however, expected such a demonstration as took place. In tho afternoon Dr. Hall con ducted tho services In his own church, and thcro was nothing to indicate that tho church had been tho geeno of oxcltcment In the morning. Warszawiak did not go to tho church himself yesterda). Perhaps his absenco was duo to his enfeebled condition. When his present troublo began ho was a stout, vigorous man, but ho has . ,, since becomo palo and emaciated. His hands " LM tromblo almost as if with palsy. Ills wlfoin- f, If elated on being present when the announcement y i Jf was made. Bho reaohed tho church early, and V, took a scat In tho front pownt tho ralddloof tho - church, directly In front tho pulpit. ir There was another woman with her, nnd a -J third soatcd herself in tho pew a little later. I Mr. Prltchard did not know Mrs. Warzawiok by tf 8 sight, and was not awaro that she was in tho r ' church. He began tho services, nnd thero was f SJ no interruption until after tho singing of tho f , second hymn, and Just before the sermon. i y Dr. Hall had told him of tho announcement t?i that was to be made, and upon his arrival at tho church Mr. Prltchnrd hod arranged with S. D. r & Brownoll, Clerk of tho session, that after ho ' hndicad tho judgment ho should return to his ft E seat before tho minister read his t6xt. In this i X way. Mr. Pritchard thought, the announcement J .? would pass otf as quietly os possible. When tho -, timo come Sir. JJrownell, who Is a whltc- " p bearded and vcuerablo older, rose and mounted , , slowly to tho pulpit. U hod boon announced that ' tho Judgment w ould be read; and there weru ' & piorothnn 1,000 persons In the church. It is F known that there is a division of opinion among f tho parishioners regarding Warszawiuk's guilt ' li andthis brought out n larger attendance than is t 1 1 usual in tho summer. Somo of thoso who knew - f ; Mrs, Warszawiak. and had seen hur enter the i, church, looked pityinglr in her direction, nnd a t hush fell over tho entire congregation. In a ; J low voice Mr. Brownell road from tho paper in , !, his hand: , "At a meeting of session of tbo Fifth Avenuo i Presbyterian Church, held June 10, 18D7. on f motion duly seconded, the following judgment , : i wo ordered: The session, having deliberately considered tbo testimony in the case of Iler 1 z maun Warszawiak, a member nf this church, h charged by the Presbyterian Church in tho , United States of America with Immoral conduct 4 as sot out in two charges auaported by sundry f v, Bpeclllcatlons, nnd having listened to the tcstl- & k mony. arguments, nnd explanations which hao , p been oCfered. ns well by the accused as by tho i ' Commlttcoof Prosecution, does Judge and deeldo that the charges have been proicd and that the j, said Hcrmunn Wnreznwiakis guilty of humoral I i conduct charged upon him. i, "And tho session does furtbor judge and dc- , tcrmlno that the said Hermann Wnrszawiak V ought to bo and he hereby la suspended, from tho t V communion ot tlie Fiftil Aunuo PresbylerlAn i I Church." f f Mr. Brownell started to return to his seat, f ' and at tbo same instant Mr. Pritchard was f- startled by a low moan. From where he stood, t ?i behind the pulpit, ho could nofsee Mrs. Wurs- k '? jaw iuk, and the bound seeined to htmtoeomo i; 'i, from tho organ lott. Ho u'l.mceit nervously in :' E"' that direction, nnd in tho mean timo tho woman W "Thut ia-not true," sho walled in broken Eng- ; C llsb. " It ii false. My husband Ih an Innocent ' if man. It Is all false. I cannot bo, silont any ; S longer. It is a shametul slander. It is not true J M Eery word was distinctly audible In tho hush 1 ii that hud fallen upon the congregation. 31m.

Thcrowasafluttciing of f ans and a crnn- 5t ing ot necks all oyer the church, but no ouo J f arose. For n few seconds the tension was unrelieved. ? ft Mr. I'rltchanl whs apparently unperturbed, al ii h though he said aftorword that ho was taken s completely by surprise. His first thought was f tnmuko un announcement, thinking that Mrs. i fs Wursznw lak would cease her plaint. He started ijf to say that during Dr. Hall's absence in July -, 3R aud August he would frequently be cnllcd upon B-; to toko his place. Ho found that the woman's ' r wail drowned out his own voice. (flV. "It Is not true," she cried again. "Myhus-iUg- band Is innocent." f Tho two other women In tho pew tried to quiet '., y her and to Indurn her to resume her seat, but in r A vain. William Culycr, the sexton, and his sh- , S' Bistant, Richard llurlou. who were at the back I" of tho church, recognising tho woman and eceing 4 ., tho nature of the disturbance, started quickly i J and quietly down tho aisle toward her pew. Mr. I S, Prltchnrd, meanwhile, opened his hymn book nt j 'A random, and in n steady volco give out the ' S number of a hymn, tho rirst that met his ce. , W It wasn't tho placo fur another hymn, but the j 4L organist was on tho alert, and almost ns soon as J ?' tbo number was out of Mr. Pritchard's mouth , i the strains of tho prelude sounded from tho ,, I ?' big organ nnd thocongrcgatlon arose losing. , q Tho efforts of the sextons to quiet Mrs. , S. 'Wnrszawiak wcro as fruitless as those of tho ' y two women had boen. Hho continued to protest I ! excitedly even after the music had begun. Col ' h, ycr told her that she would oulj injure her hus- ' jf band by her vehemence, but sho paid no heed. IS Finally he put his arm about her nnd sought ,- to draw her from tho pew. .She tried to sit .ti down then, but with tho nsslstaneo of Bur- ton ho got her into the aisle. After that she mado no resistance, and the. two men, l taking each nn arm. iartly led and partly t dragged her to tho Flfty-tlflh street entrance. S t Sho was followed by tho two women In tho pew. , and once outsido the ono who had como with her quickly took horucross to Hlxthnvcnue, where 1 they boarded n horso cur. Then Mrs. warsza 1 wiolc broke down and wept nnd sobbed. Sho ) h was almost hysterical when the reached her K home at 80 SU Mark's place. V J After Mrs. Warszaivlak had Been led out 7 about n dozen women, comprising part of tho ' ' Warszawlak party in tho congregation, gotuu k and left tho church. Thero wcro up subsequent J, oTldenccsof excitement on tho nart of thoso present, and tho congrcgutlon llstoned uttcn "V Uvery to Mr. Pritchard's sermon. i. About four months ago. at ono of tho mattings t of the session when tho charges against Warsza- wiak wero under investigation, ho mado a slinl- ' V lar "scene. Dr. Hull had advised him to le i pationt until he was called upon to give bis side ' " ot the case. On this occasion he became excited. j and, jumping to his feet, derlnred that ho could ( i no longer remain silent. He was soon quieted, i however, and reserved his defence until n later t meeting, when he talked vehemently for threo i , hours and a half. , i Wnrszawiak came here from Scotland about . (even years ago, with letters to Dr. Hall, who I became his friend. He begnn his missionary ' work in tho Jewish quarter, and last December , i he applied to bo taken under the carooftho I ft Presbytery.

Within this time the City Missionary Society, with which Warszawlak was connected, aniiuiimcd that he ' had 'confessed to wrongdoing, and It was then made known that Anthony Comstoek and ex-Do- ,m tcctive Sergeant Heidelberg had shudowed him at tbo suggestion of Morris K.

Let Spaniards and Cohans ratio to Whip tho United States and Thorn They Can Bonwa Their CnpleaMntneee den. (losses Reply to tho Vnhappy Bearer of tho Mesoag. Havana, June la After tho last failure of Wcylcr's agents in Sancti Splrltus to induco Gen. Gomez to accept peace with Spain on tho basis of reforms for Cuba, a proposal which was manfully refused by tho Cuban leader in his letter to Weyler of May 16, already published In The SON, another attempt has been mado by tho Spaniards to secure a moro extraordinary agreement with the commander-in-chief ot tho Cuban army. This timo it was not proposed to Gomez either to give up Cuba's independence, or to end tho war by any other kind of treaty, but an Incon ceivable thing If It did not emanate from Spanish brains to make nn' armistice with Spain and join the Spaniards in a war against the United States. After tho Americans are whipped an end of the struggle which la accepted without question by these sanguine Spaniards Gomez could take the Held again to fight tho mother country, and tho war would proceed between the Spaniards nnd Cubans " until a declsl vo set tlement of their family dispute Is reached." The authors of this ridiculous scheme were some Reformists of Havana who belong to the circle of supporters of the newspaper, the Diario de la Marina, The idea, it is said, met the approval of tho Marquis ot Rabell, President of the Reformist party and the principal share holders in the Diario de la Marina Company. While the Marquis, who was merely Don Pru denclo Rabell. a cigarette manufacturer a few months ago before the Queen Regent gavo him his title, was in the United States a few weeks ago he held several interviews at Washington with Sefior Dupuy do Lome, and the latter con vinced him that the policy of the American Gov ernment was to annex Cuba after Spain should becomo thoroughly exhausted in her war against the patriots, and too weak, therefore, to repel an American attack. Don Prudonclo, tho Marquis, well-known in Cuba as a perfect ignoramus, who holds a po litical position only on account of his money and tho pecuniary support ho gives his bank rupt newspaper, felt his Spanish patriotism aroused by SoQor De Ixime's statement, and wroto immediately to bis friends in Havana that something ought to bo done to prevent the success of America's Machlavolllsm with regard to Cuba. As soon as this letter was received the bright idea ot "a raco war" against tho United States occurred to the friends of the Marquis and to some other Reformists. Gen. Gomez was approached early this month by a commissioner from these Spaniards at his camp in La Reforma, Santa Clara province Gen. Gomez's policy, since tho hopeless financial distress ot Spain began, is to listen to any com missioners coming from tho Spanish side. After hearing them he always answers that tho only possible solution of the war Is the independonco of Cuba, But ho was extremely surprised when. Instead ot the old story of homo rulo and re forms, ho hcanl the commissioner unfold the great scheme of war against tbo United States. I translate literally here from a letter received in this city by a Cuban agent and written by Gen. Uomoz's privato secretary: "Tho General has forbidden me to give tho name of the commissioner. Ho pledged his word to keep it secret before the man spoke, nnd you know thnt ho does not like to compromise any of the Spaniards who havo written him or came here to speak to him. " I can tell you that since the General landed In Cuba Ito lead this war we never saw him laugh so heartily as when, after the Spaniard had disclosed his scheme and he had made him repeat it, ho assured himself that he was not treating with a madman, but with a gonuine agent of somo Spaniards of Havana. "The General called Dr. Hernandez' to his tent. In tho prcsenco ot the amazed Commis sioner, and between his roars of laughter, which surprised tho guards and every one who knows of bis usual sad aspect, explained to the doctor the new Spanish proposal. " ' Don't you know,' said Gomez to the Spaniard, 'thct I myself have-appealed to the United States in letters thnt I wrote to President Cleveland and President McKinlev 1' "Tho main argument that all the Spanish raco ought to unlto In Cuba against a fpreign in vasion was seriously answered by tho General: " ' You forgou' he sald,wthhis usual severity, " that we wero nf your own race when you en slaved us and plundered us. Now it is too lato for such talk. We will be glad only when we Beeyou out ot Cuba forever! "The only Importance) which tho General gives to all this is that It shows the uneasiness ot tho Spaniards with regard to the United States. He understands that President Mo Kinley's policy Is already different from Mr. Cleveland's, notwithstanding all the official re ports to the contrary circulated by Spanish dip lomats. "The General does not care very much for a war between the United States and Spain. He says that all wo need Is to be recognized as belligerents by America. But If such a war comes tho General believes that it will bo only n matter of a few days for us to roach Havana. Tho United States would not need to land a single man In Cuba. With the support of her navy we would Immediately take Havana by land." Notwithstanding the ridiculous end of tho "raco war" scheme, the Spanish newspapers here talk about It as an assured thing. They say that this is to be a "family war." El Putblo and Kl Comercio maintain gravely that " In tho prcsenco of a common enemy fathers and sons will unite," La.neha albo considers thnt such will be the case, tho Spaniards being tho fathers of the Cubans. A Cuban wag who is ably working here against Spain has remarked to jour correspondent con cerning nil this talk thnt It Is a gross mistake for the Spaniards to consider themselves the fathers ot the Cubans. The Spaniards of to-day descend from those contemporaries of the conquerors of Cuba who remained in Spain. The conquerors w ere tho real fathers of the Cubans. If tno con querors wero brothers of the ancestors of the present Spaniards, tho Cubans and Spaniards of to-day aro only cousins. This epigram Is very popular now in Havana as un answer to tho ' race war" campaign. Gon. Weyler knows about the commissioner sent to Gomez, but ho protonds to Ignore It.

But They Plnehert One Thimblerlsger Tho Conehen-Coaeb.ee llaneo Uame and a Croat Moral Show A Sentimental Slnser Hakes Things Lively on tho Last Train for .Home. "You can't catch a crook when you hunt for him with a brass band," was a favorlto expres sion ot a noted tletocttvo in this city yoars ago, nnd tho Coney Island policemen learned by ex perience yesterday that ho was right. They had announced that in addition to tho regu lar forco of flfty-thrco mon stationed at tho island there would bo fifty detec tives from Capt. James Reynolds' Bureau ot Criminal Investigation and Information nnd two men from each ot the thirty precincts in Brooklyn down there. This mado 103 police officers in alt, and at tbo end of the day they had only arrested one poor thlmblorlggor, who evidently had not heard the announcement. True, there wero several arrests under section 078 of the Penal Code, which relates to disorderly conduct on publlo convey ances and has a provision which enables the pollco to arrest a person for almost anything, from throwing a banana peel in the street to looking cross-eyed at a Conoy Island cop. These and a few drunks wore all the malefactors that the big police force was able to gather in. Thero was not a single violation ot tho Raines Liquor Tax law, according to tho reports of tho 103 policemen, and yet every saloon, concert hall, dancing pavilion, and restaurant where drinks are sold was running wide open and serving its customers as usual. Unless there Is a law passed by the next Legis lature making it a misdemeanor for any band to play the couchoo-couchco mora than onco a day a riot is likely to occur at Coney Island. Every band, carrousel calliope, and piano player drones out the Oriental music from morn ing until night whllo tho shows aro going, and oven when thry are not tho musicians keep up their monotonous toolings. Ir tho pollco did not permit the bunco and short earn mon to Bhow their faces on the Island thero were enough bunco side-shows there, though those who were taken In by the bunco shows seemed to bo amused ut tho manner In which It was done, nnd apparently thoy did not mind tho expense. One of these shows on tho Bowery did a flourishing business, owing probably to tho fact that tho bunco cost only a nlckol. The crowd was attracted around tho barker's stand by a Fourth ward clown dressed In a Turkish costume. He caught them by making grimnccs and beckoning to somo phan tom visitor In the distance Tho crowd gathered around, gaping open mouthed at the antics of tho clown, and when enough ot them got together, tho barkor began his work In a low, confidential tone. " I suppose some of yauso ladies an' gents have read in the newspapers about our show beln' immoral; now, I want tor state that It's nothln' of th' sort, although wo give everything that th' newspapers says wo does. Now wo claim that this show is one of the morallstiat on th' Island, an' ask yer, one en' all, ter step lnsldo an' Judge f er yerscl ves for th' small sum of n nickel. Then the barker glanced around as it afraid of police Intervention, and, raising bis voice, ho continued: "Como on everybody, the greatest coucheo couchee on tbo Island. Th' real ting an' no mis take, for a nickel a throw." A group of cappers on the outskirts of the crowd shoved ana hauled victims toward the box office, where they unconsciously gnve up a nickel and passed Inside. When the place was comfortably filled tho show began. The stage consisted of two boards. A piece of calico answered for acurialn. This was drawn aside and tho barker announced that living pictures would bo the first show. Two stout Gorman women dressed in Turkish cos tumes and the Fourth ward clown posed in the tlrst. The clown was in the act ot tilling with beer two glasses which the women held. This was labelled "A Scene at Coney Island." The next picture showed ono woman lying prono and the other standing over her with a drawn ro olvor. This was labelled "Vengeance," and concluded the living picture show. Then the two women went through a Swedish peasant dance, and the announcer said that the performance was concluded and the spectators could tell their friends they had seen a highly moral show. The victims chuckled with joy over the bunco and passed along. The last train borne from the island Is always Interesting, nnd that of last night was made particularly so by a young woman who had ap- fiarently lost her friends. Sho had been enjoy ng the refreshments on the island but had her dignity with her, and was determined not to Bo trifled with a very dangerous mood for anybody to be in on the last train,' Sbo sat well up in tho front of the car, with her arms folded. She was singing a sentimental song, the chorus ot which ran: Don't turn her away, John, Don't turn her away. She's come homo to comfort us. Now that we're old and gray. The voung woman was half asleep as she warbled, and she was startled when the crowd applauded and one young fellow shouted: ''Good for you; sing it again an' I'll buy you a peach when we reach N'ew York." The young woman's dignity was offended. " I want you to understand that I'm not to be Insulted," she exclaimed, with rising indig nation. " You're all right, sing it again," yelled tho young man. "You're a very ungentlemanlyfled person," said tho young woman. A shout ot laughter followed this remark, and the young woman became, so angry that she Blappod a fat German, who was snoring, in tho face. Ho jumped up and began striking out wildly.

Bcnham and his fnther engajod in the private banking buslnoss with monoy advanced from his wlfo's estato, it is alleged. The prosecution allogcs that tho troublo botwecn husband and wife becomo so serious that Mrs. Bcnham intended to lcavo her husband when sho hocame of age and socurcd possession of her monoy.

Tho torpedo boat Cush log is at the torpedo station partially disman tled. Sbo U, therefore, temporarily out of com mission, and the cause is alleged by officers of the station to be carelessness and oversight on the part of the engineers' force at the Norfolk Navy Yard, where the craft wan recently over hauled. The matter, it is understood, has been reported to tho Vavy Department, nnd nn In vestigation may follow. When the Gushing left bore enrlv in the spring she was considered to be in perfect condition; but, with Assistant Secretary Roosevelt aboard threo Tvecks ago, it was noticed that she could mnko nothing like her regular speed. A hasty examination failed to reveal the trouble with the machinery, nnd It was not till this week that the real causes were discovered. Ifwas found that in the ovenbruling at Nor folk the diaphragms of tho plates of the smoke stack were left off, and consequently tho regular nmount of forced draught could not be obtained in tbc engine room. It was also discovered that the packing of tho pistons had been only about halt done, nnd this permitted the loss of consid erable steam. These defocts are now being remedied.

A VETERAX IX A POORUOUBE. j Joseph Deaktn Sayo He Cnt Ofr an Bnemyi Head with a Rabrs Stroke In India. STiucrjec, N. Y.. June 20. In tho county poorhousoat Onondaga Hill Is a man who boosts ot having performed the same feat attributed in a recent cablo despatch to Col. Mahmoud Bey ot the Turkish army, who Is said to havo cutoff with ono stroko of his sabre tho head ot a Greek o nicer. The man Is Jostph Deakln. Hs is 83 years old, and has been In the poorhouso two yean. Ho was born In Pontpool, Monmouthshire, South . Wales, and tho early part of his lite was spent J in tho coal mines. On June 15, 1812, he enlisted, M, nnd, after seeing service in various parts of tbs British empire, served through tho Crimean war. During one engagement Deakln suddenly found himself confronted by threo stalwart Rus sians, who wcro advancing upon him with fixed bayonets. lie parried their thrusts for a time, when help came in the form of Martin Haley, tho funny Irishman of the regiment. Haley made a rush at one of tho Husslans and pinned htm slick as a whistlo on tho end of hla bayonet, and Deakin himself took care of on of the others. The third man ran away. Deakln had three front teeth knocked out by ono of tho fellows, and a little while afterward a bullet struck him in the chest and kept him at tho, grave's edge for a couple ot weeks. When Sebastopol had been taken he went with his I regiment to Malta, and thence to Gibraltar. I Then came an order to start for Bengal and join the thousands ot troops England was sending H out to quell the Sepoy rebellion. Upon his arrival in Calcutta a cavalry company was I wanted, and although Deakin had always fought 1 on foot he offered his services. " "Wo marchod to Lucknow," sold Deakin. " and thero we got hold of a lot of old plugs of horses nnd began to get in shape for tho attack on the rebels. Wo started up country in a few days to a town called Caproe and struck a band of 800 rebels. Wo waded right into them, and when we got through there wrosn't enough of them left to tell the story. It was in this fight that I cut off a native cavalryman's head while going at full speed. " In the front rank of the enemy, just as ws wcro getting into lighting position, two of ihe enemy came rushing straight at me. one on ench side. I got rid of tho first all tight, for hs did not quite reach me. The othor fellow ross in his saddle end made a swing at my head. I wasn't very green with my sabre, and I warded off his blow. His sword took off a piece of my elbow cap. but I didn't know It at the time. As ho was passing mo I saw my chance to get la the great sabre cut. I brought in my arm Back ward and took bitn on the neck. I sliced his lie il off as noit at n carrot and It rolled to tho eround. I swear to you as I am a living man 5 that the horse with his headless rider went for 1 fifty yards before the man's hands let (roths reins nnd the bodv tumbled to the ground. At the close nf the rebellion Deakin returned to Kngland byway of Ihe Cape of Good Hops nnd was discharged. Ho received two medals for service in the Crimea, but these he lost one night when he was out for a high old time sbortlr after his return home- Deakln says he lias a medal due him for his service in India, but he does not expect ever to get it. He shows seven scars of wounds received while in the service. The mot serious of these is an in;ury to his kneecap, which was smashed by a flying shell, and has brought on rheumatism that has made him n cripple of late years. Besides this he hns n bullet mark on his breast, a shortened funny bone where the sabre of the Indian struck him on the elbow, three front teeth which are false, nnd a sear over his eye. tho result of a premature explosion of a mine near Balaklavo. Deakin came to this country in 1863 nnd first lived nt Wntertown. Ho went into what was probably tho Merccst battle of his life when hs picked out a prclty llttlo girl of 10 nt Pom Byron nnd asked her to ho his wife. He was 40 yoars old at that time. Tbcyhad five children, butoverythlngdid not run smoothly and thev separated. Deakln rnn nn elevator In tbs Crouso block until two years ago, when his rheumatism compelled him to seek the poor house. Deakln draws 05 a year pension moner from tho Englijih Government, This he received :(, tlrt one your ago. He thinks he is entitled to t back pay. " If I could get thnt." said ho reflectivelv, "I w ould ha e nlwut $2,500, nnd I would not havi to worry the rest of my life and live on other people's charity." MR. MILLER'S SAFE WRECKED. lie nnd Xeslertrd to Warn nnrglar That II Was l-'nloeked and JCinpty. Piiovidenck, June 20. Some time ago Tn Sun recorded tho fnct that storekeepers and others in the southern part of this Stato had given up keeping valuables In their safes, owing to the persistent raids of burglars. Many of the safes are left unlocked, nnd in many instances ncard Is left hanging from the door knob call- .v ing the nttcntton of burglnrs to the fact that ths -V safe contains nothing of value and Is unlocked. Grocer J. W. Miller of Mantle neglected this precaution tho other night, and In consequence his safe was badly wrecked. Following the ex ample of his neighbor, Mr. Miller leaves noth ing ot value in the safe over night and Is always careful to seo that the snfo Is unlocked. Vol being aware of these facts, some burglars esme along, broke into the store, and began drilling into the safe without any loss of time. When the hole was deep enough they set off their ei plosives and blew the snfo door to smithereens. Then thoy scrambled for tbo contents. They found some pieces of plugged silver coin nnd a bundle of mirthless notes, which had taken up room In tho safe for somo time, and theso tbey carted away.
