Each man carried an American flag In one hand and a lighted torch In the other, and there waa great cheering as they marched past Then came the famous CharleaJ. Ilnnbert llat Jwry. all the way from the Twenty-seventh ward, with the big gun whloh has done Repub lican servloe in a doaen preceding campaigns. Each man In the battery carried a Chinese Tan tern. In the parade wore also the Unity Club, the Federal Club, the Invlncibles and halt a dozen others. When the naraders had massed themselves ln front of the house and tho Haubert gun hod performed Its part in the ceremonies. Gen. Woodford stepped forward and told how he had become Sir. Woodruffs mascot by assist ing at a similar gathering two years ago on the occasion of his first nomination: . " I am now here," he said. " all the way from Madrid to predict that we will triumphantly elect our friend and neighbor to be Lleutonnnt Oovnrnor. while making the rough rider Gov ernor." Mr. Woodruff waa unfortunately suffering from a bad cold, and had therefore to out abort his remarks, especially as he did not wish to endanger his voice In view of the big stumping tour he Is planning. "I thank you," he said, "from the bottom of fly heart for this evidence of your friendship. f elected, aa I feel confident that I will be, I will do my utmost to merit the kindness you have always shown me." Mr. Prendergaat spoke to aomo length and aroused enthusiasm when ho ouloglzedthe ad ministration of President MoKinley and de clared that Its Indorsement and the upholding of the added splendor to the American flag were Involved In the approaching election In the Empire State. Before retiring the chiefs of the serenaders shook hands with the Lieutenant-Governor. THK PJUtSIDKNrs TBtP WEST. Programme for His Entertainment at the Omaha Exposition. Washtkoton. Sept 30.

The Commissioner of Internal Revenue to-day direct od Collectors to suspend, until a decision could be obtained from the Attorney-General, tho order requiring a two-cent stamp on each rebate check issued by railroad conductors for excess of fare paid by passengers.

On Child Band and the Other Almost at IU Last Ossp -Evidence That the flrsnd mother Had Lnrod the Children Into tha Room and Then Turned On the Street Oas. Mrs. Marguerite Florlmont, a widow. 7a years old, and her 8-year-old grandson Ar mand were found dead yesterday afternoon In adjoining beds at 3fl Cedar street. Williams burg. They had been asphyxiated by Illumi nating gas. Beside the boy lay hit sister Florence. 11 years old. She was nearly dead. Mrs. Florlmont owned the house where aha lived. Her husband died lad March. There lived In the house with her Joseph Martin, a son by her first husband : Edward Florlmont. a son by her second marriage, who succeeded to his father's business, and the two grand children, Armand and Florenoo. whose parents died about alx years ago. Mrs. Florimont'a bedroom waa baok of the parlor on the first floor. She usually rose at 0 o'olook In the morning, but when she failed to be up at that time her sons did not disturb her. Edward, whose room waa ovor his mother's, was np earlier than usual yesterday. When he went downstairs he noticed that his mother's room door was slightly ajar. An hour later he left the house. Joseph Martin left the house later and before he went out he heard his mother moving around In her room. The two chil dren attended Public School 74 ln liushwlck avenue. On account of n.cough the girl had not been to school for more than a week. Almost every day Joseph Martin, another frandchlld. who Uvea in Linden street, visited Ire. Florlmont. He went there yesterday af ternoon and rapped on the yard gate. There was no reply. He jumped over the fence ami found the back basement door unlocked. He opened It and detected the smell of gas. He called his grandmother, and, not receiving an answer, he went up to the parlor floor. The odor of gas was much stronger there. He went to the old lady's bedroom door and open ed It. The room was dark and the gas nearly overpowered hlm. He ran to a window and opened It. The light from the street fell on his cousin Florence, who lay gasping at the foot of the bed. Young Martin opened the other wlndo.v and shouted for help. The boy Armand waa found lying on his face and Mrs. florlmont on h?rbaek across her bed. All three were clothed. Uus was escaping from two burners. Policeman Hallenbeck sent a hurry coll for an ambulance. Surgeon Connor of St. Cath arine's Hospital said that Mrs. Florlmont had been dead about two hours and the boy about half an hour. By moans of artificial respiration he suc ceeded In partially reviving the girl, and then took her to the hospital, where It was said last night she might die. When Mrs. Flortmont'e sons appeared later they were unable to give the police a reason for their mother's act. "My mother loved those two grandchildren," said Edward Florlmont, "and I cannot for the life of me advance any reason why she 1.1 this. Ever since my father died mother has at times acted strangely. She would go out to the grocery, buy some things, and after paying for thorn and Icuvlng she would go back and pay for them again. 8o it was with tho butcher, if only one gas burner had been open In her room to-dny one might have thought that It was probably done accidentally, but tho fact that gas was escaping from two out of the our burners In her bedroom and also that all the windows and the doors were closed leads me to believe that she might have done this while out of her head. Father left her prop erty and she was not in want." BPRKUKBt.X BOYH OUHTBD. The Control of Their Sugar Company Taken from Them Unexpectedly. San Francisco. Sept. 30. Tho control of the Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company to day passed from tho hands of young Rudolph and Gus Sprcckcls Into those of a syndicate of brokers. The deal Involved nearly $2,000,000. and was carried on so secretly that tho two younger sons of the old sugar millionaire never dreamed of the sword hanging over their heads until it fell and they had to step down and out. These Spreckel boys flrat acquired control of the stock by sharp practice on their lather, and for four years they have held It. They have rigged the market several times, cleaning up largo profits. BytheCIvil Code tho board of directors of a corporation may be removed by a two-thirds vote of tho stock. In this case that meant 60.000 shares. The opposition secured 08.000 shares, and yesterday showed their hand. The Spreckels boys and their associates at once gave up. A meeting was called and the old directors resigned, and a new board was chosen, consisting ol Edward Pollltz, broker, who was elected President : E. M. Walsh. Al bert Meyer, R. G. Brown, and Charles Sutro. The affair was managed by Edward Pollltz. Henry St. Ooar. R. G. Brown, and Daniel Meyer, with several rich brokers as their associates. The stock cost from $10 tip to $35 a share, and in three weeks nearly 30,000 shares wore pur chased at from $25 to $27. Buslnesa men generally regard the deal as a ood one, for it removes from power the preckelB boys, who have used their power to run in debt a corporation which should have made large prollts. Tho Spreckels boys re cently bought four stenmers in Europe for $5o.ii00 each for interlsland traffic, and It was to pay for these steamers that an Issue of 00. 000 shares of new stock was intended. Hawaiian Commercial stock hue been a lively gam lle for six years. Under Clous Spreckels the stock was assessed $5 a share, which shook out all tho old stockholders. Soon after the stock, which had fallen to 25 cents a share, re bounded to $8 and $9. Tho plantations under the management of the Spreckels boys became very profitable. The hope of annexation added to the value of tho stock until early this year it reached $30. and at that price tho public In vested heavily. Then came doubt as to tho ratification of the annexation treaty, and the management took advantuge of this to depress stock by selling large blocks, both here nnd In New Y'ork. Tho price went down to $10, but mint of the shareholders held on and the op position combination started in to buy stock. MBS. GBSS FOUGHT THK VAISTKHX Kept t'p a Neighborhood Quarrel Against Odds During Her Husband's Absence. Henry Hayden. who has built aflat In West side avenue, near Falrmount avenue, Jersey City, is having somo trouble about getting the rear end of it painted. Tho rear of the flat is close to the rear of Arthur Genn's house, at 451) Falrmount avenue. Mr. Oenn says that Mr. Hayden promised that ho would not put windows ln tho flat on a lino with the windows in his house, but ho violated the agreomont. Mr. Oenn then made up his mind that the rear of the flat woujd not he painted. A scaffold could not bo swung without overhanging his property, and he deolarod that if any attempt wus made to swing a scaffold ho would cut the ropes. On Thursday afternoon, whan Mr. Genn was not at home, two oaluters started to work on tho rear of the flat. Eaoh of them had a paint brush attached to a long ole, and one of them operated the brush from the roof while the other leaned out of the window. Mrs. Genu, who is as much interested in the fight as her husband, hung out somo clothes, thinking that the painters would stop work to avoid drop ping paint on the clothes. This plan was a failure, however, as tho paintors continued to wield their brushes. Mrs. Genn tnen got a long clothes pole and began to light a duel with the man who was painting out of the win dow. When he placed his brush against the boards she pushed it away with her clothes pole. The contest wus watched by a large crowd. Just before dark the painter retired, aa he hud nearly finished his work, and Mrs. Genu went Into herown house, not exactly victorious, but satisfied with the effort she had made. The contest will probably be renewed when the second coat of paint 1b to bo put on. BBOVOUT BICH PVBB AND UOl.u. Falling Oil In the Catch of Alaska Seals Iudlvated by the Leelanaw's Cargo.

Scott Inglls, an actor, committed suicide yes terday by shooting himself through the heart with a revolver In the theatrical boarding house nt 44 West Twenty-seventh street, kept by Mrs. George Wlnkee. Inglls was an Aus tralian, and waa, until Thursday, a mem ber of Julia Arthur's company. For a week or mom he had been on a spree. He neglected to attend thn rehearsals of Mlas Arthur's com pany, and two days ago A. H. Can by. Miss Ar thur's manager, discharged him. Mr. Canby aent Inglls the following letter: " Owing to the fact that yon have not re ported at rehearsals, your services are no longer required." Inglls was very mueh affected by the letter. To Mrs. Wlokes, with whom he was on friendly terms, he bemoaned his hard luck. She talked to him kindly and told him to stop drinking. He said he would try. Mrs. Wlokes advised him to see Mlas Arthur and ask her If she wouldn't reinstate Mm In her com pany. Inglls thought Mrs. Wlckes's sugges tion was a good one nnd. a short time aftor. he set out to soe Mlas Arthur nt the Holland House, where she waa staying. Mlsa Ar thur received him kindly, and said she was sorry for hlm. She begged hlm to let liquor alone and explained how his absence from rehearsals had embarrassed her and her company. Mlas Arthur said she would see Mr. Canby about him, but she didn't think his prospects for rejoining the company were very bright, as another man had been engaged to take his place. The interview evidently discouragod Inglls. and yesterday morning he told a physician who boarded In the houae that he thought of killing himself. After he had committed sul- ?lde a pawn ticket for a watch charm, on whioh 2 had been advanced, was found In hlselothee. t Is supposed that he bought the revolver with Whloh he killed himself with the money. Inglls was 36 years old. He played the Dnlr of Ormonde In the "Lady of unallty" last season, and was to play the leading main role in the same play this season. Besides tho leading role in the "Lady of Qual ity." he was to play leads in ' Ingomar " and " Camilla," two of the plays In Miss Ar thur's repertory. Inglls for a long time was a member of the Bollew-Potter company. He joined the company ln Australia. His wife waa a member of the company, and it was In Australia that ho first met her. Mrs. Inglis's stage name Is Ida Hamilton. She is said to be .a granddaughter of Gen. Walker, the Confederate General. She Is now HI at her former home In Kentucky. The Arthur company opens ln Detroit Mon day night. Miss Arthur and her company started for Detroit last night over tho Erie road. It Is not known whether she heard of Inglis's doath before she started. WOVI.V-BK SVICIDK BATKn. Howard Gnnlri Thinks of the Ass Retween Two Bundles of Hay and Arts Accordingly. A launch from Howard Gould's yacht Niagara and tho tugboat Pier of the Dock Department's fleet raced to save a man who had jumped from the West Shore ferryboat Oswego from drown ing In the North River, off Forty-second street. yesterday morning. Tho result of the race was a tie. and a line was thrown to the man struggling In the water from each boat at the same time. Too much help seemed to em barrnss the drown ing man. He trod water, with his head and shoulders nbove the surface and shouted for help without making any effort to seize either of the ropes. Howard Gould, who was aboard his launch, perceived the drowning man's dilemma, and, seizing the line which his skipper had thrown out, pulled It sboard again. The man. who had tried to drown himself, but regretted his act as soon as he touched the water, then grabbed the rope that was left and was pulled on board the tugboat by ('apt. Uoldlng, who carried him ashore and turned hlm over to Polleeman MeGowan of the West Forty-seventh street station. Tho prisoner re fused to give his name, but said that he was a cooper. 45 years old. of 553 West Fifty-fourth street. When arraigned In the West Fifty-fourth Street Police Court on the charge of attempted suicide the cooper said that ho had intended to go to Hoboken to consult a faith cure doctor, and that when he learned that he was on the wrong ferryboat he bad yielded to an impulse to kill himself.
