Thenne shut the door, amid the protests of
the outsiders. Loud In his denunciation of Mr.
. JfeDorulil was a man named 8. J. MoBride.
H Insisted that he was a delegate from the
fifth Senate district. Former Coroner John
J.Oatesof Staton Island, who la an admirer of
Kr. McDonald, heard McBride saying things
bout the Chairman.
"Oh. you're doing a lot of talking." he said.
"II you're a Senate district delegate why don't
you go Into the meeting Instead of talking
bout ynor rights ? "
"I'll do It." aald MoBride. and. striding up to
ths door of the meeting room, he opened It and
started in. J. W. Everett, the Bergeant-at-
Araa, grabbed him.
"let me alone: rma delegate." cried Mc-
Bride.
"dot your credentials?" demanded Everett.

Mr. MoDonald after this that Mr. Oates went
up to him. and. shaking his finger naderhls

."Don't you know there's a libel law in this

" Oh. what do 1 care?" said MoBride.
In the meantime J. J. Daly of the Twenty

t In the meeting. Mr. Everett attended to
k B TiT exPedltiously as ha had attended to Mc
Brlde s case. Suoh an awful clamor arose at
this juncture that Mr. McDonald stuck his
head out of the door and again threatened

Btopwbllesus OlalM of Brsmklrn Celebrated
Bis Bonomlnatlon last Night.
The hastily arranged serenade to Lleut.-Oov.
Timothy L. Woodruff last night was a big suc
cess. Two thousand or more Republicans
marched to the home of the Lieutenant-Governor
ln Eighth avenue and President street.
The frlenda and neighbors of Mr. Woodruff
In the Twenty-second ward war already then
and joined In the enthusiastic ohMrinc. Along
side the Lieutenant-Governor on the wide
stoop were Gen. Stewart L. Woodford, Con
gressman Bennett, William A. Prendergaat,
and a dozen other wpomlnent Republicans
while Mrs. Woodruff, all smiles, surveyed tho
scene from thn background.
Col. Michael J. Dady headed the line in front
of the Union Republican Club of the Third
ward. 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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

Guard with Rayonets Fixed Relieved tls
Massachusetts of Her Commander.
A hitherto untold story of some of the hap
penings aboard the United States transport
Massachusetts came out yesterday. Tha
Massachusetts got In from Santiago early ia
the week. H. C. Robinson was ln command,
under the army Quartermaster. Cnpt. Jamas
C. Read. When the Massachusetts sailed
away from hern she was ln command of Oapt.
John Flnlay. who had been her skipper when,
she was an Atlantio transport liner. Accord
lng to tho story told yesterday Capt. Flnlay
was relieved of his command when the shift
readied Santiago and sent ashore by order of
Capt. Road, under guard, beoause, ln Cant.
Read's opinion. Flnlay was luoompetent to
command the ship.
According to the story, the Massachusetts
approached Suntiago under full eteam. Tha
Captain was on the bridge, but did not order
soundings to l- taken or any of the usual pre
cautions taken by skippers when approaching
land. Four miles off Santiago the vessel
struck a reef and ran so far up on It that aha
was amidships of the reef when she stuck. :
Holes were stove In her watertight oom
parttnents between the inner and outer shell.
After n time the ship pulled herself off the reel
and entered Santiago harbor. It was about 10
o'clock when she anchored, and. according to
the story. Capt. Read immediately ordored the
Captain ashore under guard. Finlay objected
to this, but his objections didn't go. When ha
refused to go the guard showed him the busi
ness ends of i heir bayonets, and he concluded
to refuse no longer. - I
Robinson, the second officer, wai puUn com
mand by ( 'apt . Read, and he Is still the Captain
of;th ship. It was said yesterday that Capt,
Read has made Finlay's conduct the subject
of a special report to the War Department.
Capt. Rend refused to discuss the matter yea
terday further than to admit that Flnlay had
been put ashore under guard and that Gem.
Shaffer had approved of his (Read's) action.
