mWi troet wont driving yesterday afternoon In a
Bfy runabout with lils two som, John nrnl Edward,
Wfep Kited 12 nrnl 4 youre respectively. He drove up
KSi to the end ot Central Park, and, turning around.
mWt started to go down the East Drive. Whenoppo-
K& alte Eighty-fifth stroet tho reins bocamo on-
Kg tangled In tho horao'a tall. mid the animal
fc started to roar and pluijgc. In order to hold tho
Ejh,'- homo's head Conway jumpod from thowngon,
K& leaving lili two sons In II. Tho horse started to
Hv run awuy, nnd Conway could not catch tho
B bridle In tlmo to stop hint. Tho horse dashed at
' a breakneck speed nlong tho drlvo. causing
HL the many carrlagos which crowded the road
mi to scatter right and left lu order to avoid a
Eftl s amashup. Tlio runabout, with Its young passen-
Hj-v Ben, swayod and rockod from side to eldo.
KrL threatening otory moment to overturn. John,
H tho older ot tho iwo buys, held on frantically to
K - the aldo rails, and shouted ut tho top of hlsvolco
M. for help. Tho younger, Edward, calmly picked
Ktl up tho reins and pulled tlsrlitlj" on them.
HM - At Eightieth atroot tho horso almost collided
HF' with a carriage. Hoslowod up for a moment
Ef and John jumped out, leaving his younger
Hf brother In tho vragon. By this tlmo two mounted
H policemen and a largo crowd ot bicyclists wero
m-1 , racing aftor the runaway, shouting for passers
Kl by to stop 1L The cries of tho pursuers and tho
Kj rattle of tho wagon served to Increase tho fright
Bf ' of tho horso, nnd It toro down tho bill at Soventy-
Kpj ' ninth street at great spcod. Little Kdward sat
HtHi' upright and cool in hla seat, holding on to tho
fit rolns, and trying with all his feehlo Btrongth
fr to stoi tho horse. Tho boy's largo sailor hat
B hung by its elastic, on tho back of his nock, and
Hi tho mud which flew up from tho horso's hoofs
Ef had ulmost covored bis face. Now and then ho
H looted back to see It tho policemen wero gain-
K ing on him. At tho bottom of tho hill tho wheels
HJfe of the carriage struck tho pathway, and for a
Be moment tho carrlago ran along on two wheels.
K Yet not for a moment did tho child relax his
BJk hold on tho ruins.
Mt "Whoa, Hesst Whoa: there's a good girl,"
IK; bo cried, tugging on the rolns.
IK It looked na though tho carrlago would bo
H dashed to pieces at tho bottom of tho hill at
Iw Sovonty-BCeond street, as tho Drive was packed
K. with vehicles coming from every direction. The
.K pursuers realized tho peril that tho little drlvor
$ was In, nnd they redoubled their offortB to catch
J tho mare. . ..
i Policeman Edward Dougherty was standing
: ' at tho foot of the hill w ben ho heard the shouts
1 $ of tho crowd nud saw th wagon dashing along
tho road, Running out into tho mlddlo of tho

i J passed him. The aulii.Jil dragged him for a few
i. 5 Icrtnud then stopped.
f, " Well, I'm bluvedl exclaimed Dougherty as
i is. ho noticed tho oung drlvor. "What are you
Jk doing there I"
3- Driving," answered tho Httlo fellow, as cool
H nson Icicle. "Hero," as another policeman crab-
(j bod tho marc's bridle, "leavo her alone; we can
t ! hold her."
& "Don'tyou wnntndrlnkof abater! asked an
-, old gentleman in tho crowd.
t i "No, thanks, I don't drink wator."
' "As plucky a boy as I ever see," said a coach-
I 3 man who had Joined In tho chuee.
j By this tlmo Conway nnd bU eldor son, who
; a hadnot been injured by his Jump, came running

Kmcapt That Tramps Killed HU Father.
IiTTsnt;ito, July IB. Detectives McKelrey
and Iloblnson, from hom Archlo Relso, tbe
nllegod youthful slayer of his father, escaped by
Jumping through a car window In Illinois, re
turned homo to-day. In bringing tho boy up
from l'miua City, Oklahoma, the dotectivca tried
to get the story ot the killing from him, Tho
bundles'! body ot Kelso's father was found in tho
Monnugahcla River on Hopt. 20 Inst nnd tho
head wns found burled In tho sand about 200
j nrds away on Sept. 23.-
Tno lmy told tho dotectlvos that on his tramp
ing trips ho hvl become acquainted with two
hoboos, "J'unxsutawney Tom" and "Emigrant"
French. On tho night ot Hopt. 10 he was with
his father, and thoy mot the tramps and wont
to the theatre
Tho two tramps suggested to tho lmy that they
tako the old man up to tho camp tho noxt day
and "blister" him, thut Is, put ncld on his legs,
arms, and face to mako them soro In order to
uso tho old man for begging purposes. Tho next
day tho boy took his father to tne tramps' camp
at Wiley llroto, Uonty miles abovo Pittsburg.
"The old man kicked on bcinir blistered." said
tho boy, 'and jelled and screamed so that wo
hid to slop. So wo crossed the rlcr. and I loft
hltn with tho other fellows, and as 1 had a dollar
I wont donn to Elizabeth to get n drink. I
returned In n half hour and mot Tom coining
out of tho grove.
"Where's tho old mnnf I asked. 'In tho
grove w 1th French,' rcpllod Tom. I started Into
thogrovoand Just at thoed'roof It I saw the
old man's head. I picked It up and wrapped It
in tny iont."
Tho boy would say no mora about tho dis
posal ot tho head nnd body.
" You lie," said MrKclvoy. " You know those
tramps weren't with you." " No, they weren't,"
said Kelso. "I guess you know all about It.
Tbov wet o on tbo other sldo of the river. I had
trouble with the old man a yoar or so ago, nnd
hit htm thru on the head w ith a club."
" How did you kill him I" porslstod McKelvey.
But IColso refused to talk further.
It is liollovcd that father and son had an
altercation at the grovo, and that tho boy
struck him, killed him, and then severed his
head and even cut off his shirt tab, which bad
the initials of tho man who had given tho shirt
to tho boy for his father. The boad. when
found, was crushed on one side, as It from a
blow. Tho shirt tab waa found. Kelso has three
sinters, one of n horn Is married. Tbe others are
trained nurses, and all are highly respected.

Two yonng women, one of whom is a well
known artist, caused a sensation in a boarding
houso on tho upper west sido of the city a few
nights ago. Intending to go to the seaside for a
low weeks' vacation, they had fancy bathing
suits made. It was lata at night when tho bath
ing suits wero delivered at tho boarding honso.
The young wouien tried them on One of thcra
suggested that they soak the suits over night In
water so that they might shrink before Doing
worn in public So they put the suits in tho
bath after Ailing the tub with water, and for
getting to put out tho light In the bathroom,
they locked tho bathroom door. Then they re
tired. At 10 o'clock another hoarder discovered tho
bathroom door locked. The boarder watched
the door until midnight, and then dooidod that
something droadful had hnppencd Inside a sui
cide or a sudden doath. Peeping through tho
keyhole in tho door, tho boarder aaw tbo Imndlo
of clothing floitlng in tho water, and, rousing
tho landlady, he reported thnt there was a
corpse In the bathtub. Two other boarders were
told about It, and there was great excitement.
Then throe messengers went out to inform tho
police.
Three cops came and forced onon tho bath
room door. They found only tho bathing suits
In tho bathtub, and were so disgusted that they
throw tho suits out of the window.
The owners of the bathing suits, when at the
breakfast table on tho following morning, saw
tho suits hanging on tho shutter of tho dining
room window. Explanations followod, and the
solving of tho boarding house mystory was complete.

Magistrate Poolo made a now ruling yoster
day in Jefferson Market Court in the matter of
exotse violations. John McQutnuess, bartondor
for Goodwin Bros., saloon keepers at 437 Eighth
avenuo, was arraigned before him for selling
liquor after midnight to Detectives Pepperted
and Ranth of tho West Thirty-seventh street sta
tion. Goodwin Bros, bava a restaurant over their
saloon which covers the 300 square feet re
quired by law. In the rear of tbe saloon, on the
second floor, there are Beveral small rooms. The
restaurant was closod and locked up yesterday
morning whon the detectives appeared, but they
went Into one of tho small rooms and ordered
some whiskey. Thoy got it, they say, without
asking for a meal or a sandwich.
Counsel for McGulnness contonded that the
rooms back of tbe saloon wero merely adjuncts
of tho restaurant upstairs, nnd that as Goodwin
Bros, had a restaurant license, they had a right
to serve drinks on Hunday in the small rooms.
"I think you're right, said tho Magistrate.
" A restaurant keeper has a right to lia e small,
privato dining rooms off of his main dining
room. In tl is enso tho law was complied with
in respect to the sl7o of the large dining room.
At the Manhattan Hotel you ran seo Just such
violations in this ono Is said to be at any time.
I do not think the law has been violated, and
tho prisoner Is discharged.

Sam Fiukcisco, July 18. Little Winifred
Ward, 0 years old, so loved her friend, Eva De
veer, aged 11, that when Eva, on Thursday, was
taken to tho Ladles' Protection and Relief So
ciety to save her from being beaten by her foster
father, Winifred grieved so she could not sleep
nor oat. Tl.o h!ld lost flesh nnd spirits so rapid
h that bor mother became alarmed, and it was
dee'ded to lee hor meet Evu.
Ycsteruay afternoon thoy spent playing to
gether. Tho mooting was lathotlc. Eva's hair
had been cut In accordance with a rulo of the
institution. Whon Winifred saw her friend's
ht.id sho wept and begged that her hair might
bo cut, but she was somewhat pacliled by tho
assurance that Era's hair had been saved to
cover dolls' heads.
Then It was Eva's turn to weep when sho
learned for the first time that she was really a
foundling. She sobbed: " I don't belong to any
one, I haven't any name and I'm all alone.
That settled It, and Mrs. Ward doclded to adopt
her nnd let hor bo a sister to her own girl.
Tho children had known c.vh other two nnd a

WiiKxumj, W. Va., July 18.-Tho feeling of f
unrest that has been manifest among the miners
of tho Monongahcla district for three or four
days has been Incronsocl by tho news of the suc
cess of the union agitators in tho Norfolk and
Wcstorn district,' and. In view of tho renewed
efforts of tho miners' agents. It seema pretty
cortttin that a break in tho district will ocour to
morrow. This aftornoon a crowd of several hundred
Monongahcla diggers held a secret meeting at
Willow Tree, noar Falrmount. Tho situation
was talked over, but the men refused to say
whether definite action was taken. One of them
Intimated that matters would romaln quiet until
the Dobs meotlng, which may bo held on Tues
day. If the diggers do go out an effort to operate
tho mines will bo mode nt once. In the southern
part of tho 8tnt. where 4,000 mon struck yes
terday, efforts will be mads to get tho Flat Top
miners out.
Tho Dlngess miners have promised to striko
to-morrow. Thoy will very likely bo followed
by the Flat Top men. and thus tho entire pro
duction of coal In southern West Virginia will
censo.
PiTTsnnno, July 18. Tho lnjunotlon that was
Issued against the United Mtno Workers' offi
cials two yoars ago by W. II. De Armltt,
Prcsldont of tho Now York and Cleve
land Gas Cool Company, is still In force,
as Cameron Miller. ex-Vlce-ProsIdent of
tho United Mlno Workers, discovered to-day.
Mr. Miller wont out to Turtlo Greek to do a
ltttlo quiet work for tho miners. As he jumped
off the car ho found T. B. Do Armltt, superin
tendent of tho mine, waiting for him. Mr. Do
Armltt Invited Mr. Miller Into his office, and
there flashed on him the Injunction which for
bids Miller. Patrick Dolan, and William Warner
to enter upon fie proporty of the company or to
hold meetings uf miners.
Tho miners' National Executlvo Board will
meet to-morrow morning at Columbus. Pat
Dolan. district President, nnd tho Executlvo
Committee from tho Pittsburg district will at
tend thu meeting. It Is presumed that business
regarding West Virginia will bo transacted.
1 ho miners of Dompnter & Boyd, two coal op
erators, are working at a CO-centrato.
The mon hnd gono on striko, but consented to
go to work again on condition that the coal ther
mined should bo sold to the Pennsylvania Rail
road, to be used only for tho locomotive engines.
They served notice th it they would strike again
it the coal wns sent West.
CoLUMnrs. O.. July 18. President Ratchford
of the United Mino Workers gave out the fol
lowing statement in regard to the present strike:
"The manner in which tho mlncaa are con
ducting thumsehcscommcndsltselfrothe coun
try an i gives their officers renewed encourage
ment und strengthens the belief that victory
will ultlmatoly crown their effort. Tho history
of industrial Btrlfe has no parallel to the prcsont
movement. Deputy marsh els, coal nnd Iron
Eollce, and EPcretdetcctivcs have been at work,
ut their presence has failed to Inrlto
the minors to acts of lawlessness or oven to a
resumption of work. Their presence Inpcacoa
ble communities with a chip on their shoulders
gavo some cause for alarm, and ordinarily
would have caused a resort to violence. But
our miners In this Instance, profiting by the ox-
Scricnces In the past, would neither cause trou
lo themselves nor allow thomselves tobocomo
lnroh ed In troublo by tbe action of others.
" Reports from somo of tho cities to tbo effect
that coal supply is not short are only Intended
to discourage our nilnorr. It tho coal supply is
not short why are prices advancing I Why Is
coal w orth a dollar a ton, and even a dollar and
a half morn than it was two weeks ago t Why are
the railroads confiscating coal shipments t Why
arc tho shops and factories whose wheels uro
put in motion by tho labor of the union ceasing
tooporntot Why are operators nil over the
States offering their mlucrs a rate oven higher
than tho one demanded, If they will only con
tinue nt work The reason Is patent to all.
"Coal issrarco. Those who nave it to sell get
fancy prices, and those who offer en advance.
Fartlcularly In West Virginia and portions of
lllnols, do It for the purpose of checking and
defeating this movement, and minors who do
not know this will realize it fully when tho
battle is ovor if such operators have thoirway.
"We started Into this movement reallrlng
fully tho importance of the work before us ana
tho responsibility resting upon us, and after
two weeks of suspension, Involving more than
150,000 men, wo are woll satisfied with tho re
sults. Only thoso who are best acquainted
with tho condition of the miners have hsd
any idea of tho extent of this suspension
and its paralyzing effects noon tho labor and
business of the country. It has not reached Its
full proportions.
"Tho coming week will add 20,000 men
to tho Idlo column. Tbe weok following will
bring greater accessions to our ranks.
"Tho movement will contlnuo to grow, not
only from the point of numbers In vol red, but
public opinion will become crystallized more
fully, and through tbe press of the country will
demand n solution of this great difficulty. Tho
organized trades of tho country nre to-day in
closer touoh than ever before.
"Never in the history of labor troubles hare
they been found so closely allied together. Our
demand for living wages and the determina
tion of our miners to secure them havo brought
expressions of sympathy and moral and
uiatrrlnl support from almost every branch of
organized labor, whoso efforts In our behalf will
endear them to all lovers of fairness and will es

Tho appointment of T. V. Powdcrly as Com-mlssinner-Genoral

McKlnley has deeply offended tho members ot
somo of the labor organizations hero. Among
these Is the Central Labor Union, which spent
a good part ot its session yesterday denounc
ing tho appolutmont. Henry Melsel, delegate
of tho Bartenders' Union, who is an antl-Pow-derly
man, was Chairman ot tbe meeting. There
wore a few friends of PowderlyJ present,! but
they wero shouted down whon they attempted
to say anything in hla favor. Tho discussion
began with the introduction of tho following
resolution by Samuel Prince, delegate ot Cigar
Packers' Union No. 231:
"Itcbolvtd, That tho appointment of T. V,
Powdcrly as Commlssionor of Immigration Is
tho greatest official Insult ever offered by the
Federal Government to organized labor."
In speaking to tho resolution Prince called
Powdorly a traitor to tbo cause of organized
labor.
Delegate Farrell of the Concord Labor Club,
drrlarod that organized labor should denounce
Powdrrly's appointment in tbo most emphatic
terms. l'l hnvo trbpd to elevate Powdorly," ho
said, "and helped to ralso him to the high posl
Mon ho once occupied, but ho has not been a true
Knight."
hceral delegutes charged Powderly with first
being a free eilver man and then coquetting
with trusts and monopolies and speaking li
fu or of tho gold standard.
"Powderly cunied tho appointment," said
Dcleg.itu McUlll of the I'lasterors' Union.
"None of tho labor leaders aio in tho business
for their health. I did all I could to eloct
Br) an, hut I think Powdorly did what a good
many nthcra would have done."
Delegate Johnstone of tho United Carpenters
und Jolliers declared that the whole discussion
wnn nut of order, but iho Chairman ruled that
Johnstone's point was nut well taken. This do
tldon whs appealed from, but the Chulr wat
siibinincd,
"I dcm'l bolio e In this kind of business," said
D( legato Johnntono bitterly. "It Is a matter
of factional fenling. if bcncioign had got tho
appointment thero would biu o beon no opposi
tion Univ. ' ,
homo ono shouted "Powdorly'a all right,"
whi-rout there cvns a howl of derision.
"Hoiiiii of ou are soro at Powderly," con
tinued Johnntono. "hut ho may be at the head
of tho Knlghu of Labor again."
"Not on your life!" shouted a delegate.
"To tho victors lielong tho spoils," said Dele
gato Mcliill. "Powdcrly got there In spite of
jour catcalls, isn't tho poor follow entitled to
all tho reward he ran get for his dirty worki"
"It's too late to lock tbe door when the steed
Is stolen," said Dologuta Farley of tbo Hexugon
Labor Club, "l'owderly's appointed now and
wo can't undo It,"
A motion to table the resolution was lost.
More abuso of Powderly followed and the reso
lution was carried.

Resident Complain and Their Ctnstodlan Is
Lacked fp rr Maintaining HuUnnee,
Since the hoi weathor began residents In the
neighborhood of Abingdon square hare been
annoyed by tho occupation by car horees.of tho
oast stdo ot tho square, Tho Metropolitan
Traction Company, which operates tho Eighth
avenuo lino, maintains an exchange station
there during tho summer months, and for the
greater-part of every twenty-four hours be
tween twontijttvo and thirty horses stand on
the street bai jLt up against the curb.
For tho cc Tjiiilcnoo of bicyclists thero is nn
asphalt strip jj each bldo'ot tbo stroet, but In
hot weather iiVjclmon have to uso tho cobble
stones to get ,9 tho square. Complaints havo
frequently bcoii mado by bicyclists, but it wns
not until yesterday that residents in tho
vicinity took declstvo action.
William E. White of 10 Abingdon square
went to tho Charles itrcet station In tho morn
ingnd told Copu Potty that tho horses would
havo to leavo the squire or he roust. Ho said
that they were a detriment to tho poaco, health,
and happlnoss ot the neighborhood, nnd that
the taxpayers v. ere prepared to fight to got rid
of them. Ho said that tho noise made by the
nrlyers dropping tho car whltlletreea in ex
changing horses was kopt up tho greater part of
the night, and prevented people from getting
any sleep. In addition to this, the odor from
tlio horses forced the pcoplo tc closo their front
windows whon tho weathor modo it most
necessary to have thorn open. ,
"I hare been to ace tbo officials of the Metro
politan Traction Coiupauy," ho said, "and was
told to tako tho number of every drlvor who
disturbed us In exchanging horses, and they
would have him discharged. But ovcry drher
doos tho samo, and I can't stay up all night
writing down numbers. As far as tho nuisance
itself was concerned, tho company's officials
gnvo mo no satisfaction whatever.
"Last night the noise bocame so troublcsomo
that I called tho attention of tho policeman on
the post to tho fact aud thoy stopped it, bcsldo
sending away half tho horses."
Mr. White assured Oapt. Petty that ho woulc"
push tho case, and asked that the man in charge
of tho horses bo arrestod. Detectives Corey
and Gcrlghty, upon investigating tho case,
found that twenty-four horsos wero standing
on the square, and that It was exceedingly dan-
f;erous for bicyclists to pats between tho stand
ng horses und the cars. They arrested Wil
liam Bohen of 430 West Fifty-first street, an
employee ot tbo Eighth Aveuue; Railroad
Company, charging him with maintaining a pub
lic nuisance. Ilo will bo taken before Magis

The Slopement of . Young Couple Twice Tims-.
tinted by the Girl' Father.
PouonttnitraiK. July 18. The love affair ot
Archie Hoffman, a clerk In the Dover Plains
Bank, and Miss Minnie Relmer, daughter of
Adolph Relmer, a wealthy manufacturer and
promoter of that village, is talked of throughout
the Harlem Valley. Twlco the young couple
havo tried to elopo and each time their plans
have been frustrated by the father of the girl,
who Is said to lo opposed to his daughter's mar
riage on account of her youth. Miss Relmer is
10 years of age.
Hoffman belongs to a good family and came
originally from Millerton. ne was employed
until a year ago In Amenta and was selcctod for
a vacant clerkship In tbo Dover Plains Bank
only after a close investigation of bis character
and antecedents. ,
Miss Relmer is a prepossessing young woman,
and is well educated, having attonded one ot tho
best seminaries In Massachusetts. Her father's
home Is on tho Tou-Mllo River in Dover Plains.
It is one of tho handsomest residences In a vil
lace noted for its pretty homes.
The young couple, nothing daunted by parental
opposition to their union, decided on May 29 to
got married anway, and Hoffman arranged
with a clergyman In Amenla to come to Dover
Plains and tin the knot.
Ho provided a pair of swift horses to carry
him and his bride away, but tho plan mis
carried. Tbe father of the girl found her at
the vlllago hotel before the clergyman arrived
and tock hor home. Last Saturday another
elopement was pl'tnncd, but this was spoilrd by
the finding of Miss Relm-r's clothing done up
In a bundle and hidden under a couch. Her
angry father made her undress and go to bed,
and Mrs, Relmer was so much disturbed by tho
excitement that she became thoroughly un
nerved and was taken to New York for medical
treatment.
Everybody is waiting now for tho third at
ten'rt of tho young couplo to unlto their for
tunes. If there Is luck in odd numbers they
ought to succeed.

about 2 o'clock yestorday morning he was dis
gusted. His wife had heard the noise at the I '
door nnd had already koho to the window.
Sho reported to him that some ono wanted v
him to come down to 233 West Stxty-Qrst streot '
and attend Ut a woman who was shut up In a ,
folding lied. Then the doctor himself wont to ',
tlio window und looked out.
Ho saw a tall, burly man, whoso grutT rolce
soon reiterated the demand for aid. The doctor
uaid that ho could not attend to any more night
calls, fur ho hnd gla-on up that sort of work.
"I tell you Dan Oallatrher's wlfo had the bed
fall up on her, aud tho folks from Rooserelt -
Hospital sent mo to you to come down and see
her.
" I don't go out on night calls any more," re

' If you don't como I'll fir yez so you won't
never nnswur no call, night or day," waa tho re
ply he says he got.
You Just wait two seconds and TO show yon
