Tho nnrunient that followed, principally bo
(tvecn M.ieGovcm nnd Kramer, was a hot one.
JIacOovern contended that tho testimony of
Martin Mnhon and Mrs. Johnson was no more
to be believed than that of Fnyno Moore. If

believed that Fnyno Moore should bo credited,
lOIr. Johnson's testimony had been contra

who naturally would havo sided with tho pros
ecution if sho had consultoi horownndvan
lace. Fr.izer believed that such a crime ns
baJcerlng called for speedy and sovoro punish
ment nnd maintained that It had been clearly
Irroted that Fnyno Moore was. If nothing
more, a willing tool of hor husband. With tho
exception of Gnllconstoln and Stone, all of tho
jurors were firm in ho stand thoy had taken.
But theo two occasionally changed.
, When tho third ballot was taken Ctillom
changed nnd v'otod for acquittal, making tho
vote 7 to 5 for conviction. Moro argument cn
suel. but It was not so hot nn formerly, as
ererj body was tired out. Finally, Fruzer said
that, as thoy wore nil in n stuto of physicnl ex
haustion, ho thought It would be hotter to
agree to disagree. This proposition, coming
from the lender of tha forces for conviction,
was quickly asontcd to by tho minority, who
ivcro hopeless of winning ovor Frn7or, Homan,
Clarko nnd Flnnegan to tholr Bide, and had
rerious doubts about tho others. Tho mes
sace was accordingly sent to Ilccordor Ooff
that tho jury oould not possibly agree.
Recorder Goft discharged them nt half past 10
yesterdny morning. Thoy had been out since
l'J:40 1". M.'of tho preceding day Assistant
District Attornoy Daniel O'Rollly said that a
date for tho retrial would bo set next week.
W. K Mooro was tried twlco. his first trial
reuniting in a dls.igroumont. and tho second,
alter a long sitting bv the jury. In conviction.
When tho Fnyno Mooro jury was locked un
fortho night nt 11 o'clock yosterdny morning it
was "suppose I thnt thoy leaned strongly to
conviction. The opinion was strengthened
by the request of the jury at half pa 11 Hat
unlny night to bo Informed whether they
lilahl convict of a lesser degree of erlnio than
tlmt cli irgod In tho indictment. II"CorUor Ooff
read the definition of the degrees of robbery
totheni nnd informed them thnt by the law
they might convict of n lesser degree of rob
lnrylrtlievdld nor consider tho llrst degreo
proved, but that tholr ordlct must bo in no
eor lance with tho facts. Every one In tho
coipirnnm snld"
'They'll bo In in ten minutes with n verdict

lint the minutes went iiv nnd the singularly

Frank Nulty.a Post Office clor'.:, in years old,
of 522 West 17.1th street, shot and Instantly
killed his former sweetheart. Mamlo Romle,
yesterday afternoon because she would not
marry him. The girl was 17 rears old and
lived with hor paronts at 2:171 F.lithth avenue.
After killing1 her he turned the weapon upon
himself, fired two bullets into his brain and
will die.
Nutty was employed nsa clerk In the Uni
versity Holghts Post Office, of which his father
It superintendent. The Post Ofllco Is located
between Fordham and Morris Heights nnd
was established two years ago for the benefit
of tho New York University on Sedgwick
avenue. He was nlwavs nttontlvetoduty and
was well IlkW br his fellow lerks, but they
saw that ho hnd an ugovornnble temper, and
thoy wero careful to avoid any dispute with
him.
Five months ago young Nulty met Mamie
Remloy at a friend's house and thoro the two
young peoplo fell tn love. The young clotk
becamo a regular caller atlho girl's house,
and after they had been going together for
two months their engagement was announced.
The courtship ran smoothly until two months
ago. when the girl began to tire ot Nulty. Ho
protested against her chance of hoart and told
her ono evening In the presence of hor mother
thnt If he did not marry her nobody else would.
Tho girl jokingly asked:
"Why. Frank, you wouldn't harm anybody,
would you?"
He did not make any reply. In spite of
Nulty's nrdent wooing tho girl wantod to break
tho engagement, but he became so insanely
jealous that she was afraid to tell him,
She told her mother she was afraid he
would kill her.
One evening about fix weeks ago Nulty
spoke of marriage, and then the girl overcamo
her fears and tn the presence of her mother
told him that she no lunger loved him, nnd he
might as well learn then ns later that their en
gagement must bo broken. Young Nulty bo
tamo furious. Jumping to his feet ho shouted:
"Mnmle. If jou al-e ino up. I'll come hero
and shoot you dend at your mother's feet I"
Tho girl's mothet then ordered him from
the lions". After this Nulty sent several
threatening letters tn the girt. In every let
ter ho mndo use of the phrase: "If you give
me up I'll shoot vou dead."
He called .at the girl's borne one evening n
week aftor his dismissal ami became no abusive
that Mr. Itemley made his daughter go to the
Uarlom Poltco Cmitt the noxt morning and
swear out a warrant for his arrest on o charge
of threatening to kill her. This she did, nnd
Nulty was taken to court, but upon promising
the gill's father thnt he would s'av nay
from the house nnd let her alone he was dls
eharged'by Magistrate Pool. Ho called at her
homo a few nights after that nnd wanted to talk
the situation over with the girl's parents. He
told Mr. Itemley that ho wanted to marry her.
but the lather said that was out of the ques
tion, since his daughter did not care for him.
Nulty was also told on this occasion that If bo
ever harmed the girl her father would kill
him on sight.
Nulty then said he realized that his suit was
hopeless, but the lettqr writing continued. Iu
ono letter. In which he renewed his threat to
kill her. he drew the ploturo of n dagger aoross
the lop. .of. the., llrst sheet. The blade was
drawn with red ink and the handle blaok.
Underneath ho wrote: "This will be for you
somo day."
One of tho recent lettors read as follows:
"Go to confession noxt Saturday night. Then
when you como out I will put a bullet through
your heart, Vou may think it will bo an easy
tiling Tor you to throw mo over, ns you evidently
Intend doing, illnt I want to tell you, Mamie,
It you persist In acting as you have you wlllre
gret It. FniVK,"i9
Tho girl showed these letters to her father,
but ho said they were Idla threats.
Miss Itemley spent all of Saturday after
noon purchasing presents for the youngor
children end on Saturday night tho sat up late
to decorate a Chrlntmui tree. Ffirly In the
evening n messenger boy came to the door and
said ho had a package for Miss Mamie Itemley.
She opened it nnd found a flvo-potmd box ot
choice candles with a note wishing her a
merry Christmas. It was signed Frank Nulty,
This recalled nil of Nulty's threats and the Ctrl
became nervous. She told her mother that
she wns afraid something terrible was about
to happen. She nrose early yesterday morn
ing nnd distributed the presents from the
Christmas tree to the other members of the
family. Sho attended church and on her re
turn ngaln told her mother that she feared
something awful was going to happen.
While she and tho children were In the par
lor at about 2 o'clock, the bell rang, and when
one of the family peered down the stairs they
saw young Nulty at the door. The girl, ap
parently forgetting her fears, threw her
mother s cape over her shoulders and went
down to tho door to tea what he wanted. He
said:
"Well. Mamie. I want to know for the last
time, do you or do you not Intend to marry
me?11
She told him again that she Would not mar
ry him. Then Nulty aekod her to go upstairs
aid get his letters and to be sure nnd get nil of
them. He made no threats nt this time. She
went after the letters and returned In about
ten minutes. He stood at the bottom ot the
stairs waiting for her.
When she came down they stood talking in
a dark corner of the hallway, near a door lead
ing to thn cellar. Nobody henrd.thelr conver
sation. Mrs. Itemley was looking out of the
window to see If Nulty had gone when she
beard five shots lit quick succession. The
shots wore followed by a woman's sareams.
Mrs. Nulty fell back Into the room yelling:
"My Godl It's my MninleT I know It!"
lilwnrd Weiss of 270 West I'.'Hth street
was passing at tho time. He run into the hall
war and saw the tvn bodies lying near the
on trance to tho cellar. He struck a match
and found that the mnn wns still breathing.
His head rested on the girl's shoulders. The
girl was dead. Mhe had beeu shot through the
heart.
An nmbnlnnco was summoned nnd Nultr
whs removed to the J. Hood Wilght Hospital.
The girl's body was taken to the West 12.ritli
street station.
The girl's father eame home shortly after
the shooting, ahd tho first question he asked
wns: "Is tho (nan le...lf"
When told that ho was dying. Mr. Rentier
TPald:
"I hope ho lives. If he does. I will kill htm
on sight."
Nultv shot tho girl with ft new ft2-callbre
Hopkins A Allen revolver, which he purchased
a few days ago. It is said that he told severnl
(it his rrlends that he would kill the girl If she
refused to inauv hlin. When ho left his home
yesterdny ho told his parents tlmt ho wns go
ing to par a friendly visit and would return In
time for (Uiitier. .
The police of the West I2.1th street station

Coroner. In one of these. It is said, tho girl
wrote t hat her fat hor had Icnrncd of their secret
meetings. nnd tbat.ns a result, she would leavo

called hero n "blood-roil Christmas" In "Tho
Reservation" dlslrlctthls evening, Two mon
nre dend, flvo wounded nnd a domti or more
bruised ns the result ot n race conflict. Tho
presence of a InTge body of police nt a fire less
than a block away front thescono of tho trouble
Is nil that prevented the most serious collision
between blacks and whites ever known In
Texas. Tho conflict mar lm renewed, as those
Involved, numbering several hundred w"hlto
nnd block men, nro Inflamed, and only kept
apart by tho forces ot Bhorlff C&boll and Chief
of Police Cornwell.
The fighting started nt the eornor of Webb
nnd Austin stroots. Three wlitto men, John
Franks, 0. W. Htnllriw and William Debruyn,
bocamn Involved In n fight with a negro named
Oscar White. Boveral other negroes came to
Whlto's assistance, Whllo was soon killed by
blows on tho hend from a pleeo ot Iron pipe
used on enrden hose. His neck was broken
nnd Ids skull crushed. Frank Holland, another
negro, was stabbed live times nnd ts reiorted
dead.
Inn few minutes after tho lighting started
several hundred whites and blacks wero
mixed up In a frco-for-nll riot, using knives,
pistols, stones, clnbs and other wonpons.
The police rushed In, twenty strong, nnd In ten
minutes' tlmo hndtherlctsupprossed. Franks.
Hudlow nnd Dobruyn, all seriously wounded
from bruises nnd cuts, woro nrrestod with half
n dozen negroes. Two ot tho latter. A. C Carr
nnd Jim Dove, have two knlfo woiinds. Carr's
condition Is regnnlcd as critical. A dozen or
more other whiles and blacks sustained bruises
and cuts moro or less severe, hut escaped nr
rest. The pojioe will doubtless make more
arrests. A strong force of policemen nnd
deputy sheriffs Is on duty to-night In tho
reservation.
Nobody scorns to know just what precipitated
tho conflict. It enmo on like a flash ot
lightning, nnd soemed to be due largely
to race prejudices, suddenly Inflamed under the
lufluenco ot liquor. Tho lire nearbywas the
cause of the meeting of the crowd.

An unidentified man. believed to have been a

by storerooms and the second by a roadway

GAVton. 0.. Doc. 25. Judge Day, President
of tho American Peace Commission, who with
Mrs, Day returned to the city this morning and
joined tho family In n Christmas dinner at the
old home, laughed at tho Story that tho Com
missioners wero to receive $100,000 each for
their services, Ho pronouncod It ridiculous,
and said that tho Commissioners had not
undertaken tho duties on a money-making
cnterinjso. He said that while tho matter of
compensation had nevor been under consid
eration, they expected nothing uioro than a
fair compensation for tholr work.
The President, who alono decides tho matter
ot compensation, has no near approach to a
parallel case as a precedent, but In formor
commissions for treaty negotiations, notably
tho Ilchrlug Beatnnttor, tho compensation of tho
Commissioners has been very modest There,
havo been, however, in connection with some
ot the negotiations, largo (ccs paid, but thoy
went to prominent attorneys retained ns coun
sol to present the case, and not to thn Commis
sioners. In tho Paris negotiations the rOle of
secretary and that of counsel was carried by
ono parson, Mr. Moore.
Judge Day will not go to Washington again
iu connection with tho Peaeo Commission duty,
rtor will tho other members. Their work Is
finished. Ho will rosumo tho prnctico of law
Iu this city, tho firm ot which he was a member
having remained intnet during his absence in
Washington and in Pnrls. During his absence
thero has been much gossip about the Judge
being tho next Republican candidate for Gov
ernor ot Ohio. Regarding this ho said :
" I am not a candidate for Qovornor of Ohio,
nor will I bo a candidate undor any circum
stances for that offlco or any othor. I would
not bellttlo or speak lightly of so Important uu
office, but it Is my only ambition to bo pur
tnltted to live In Ohio and to practice my pro
fession. I am glad to got bncu to Canton, and
I expect to remain here."
While tho Judgo declines to talk in detail of
tho work In Parts, It ts glonned from his con
versation with thoso who have called on him
that the American Commissioners found tholr
work very trying nnd roll very keenly tho grav
ity of tho situation with which they had to deal.
Whllo they were always firm and united nnd
supported by instructions from Washington
when thoy went Into joint session with tho
Spaniards, they had many olose questions to
decide nnd manv hours were consumed every
day of the sojourn in Paris in arriving at tho
conclusions to bo prcsentod to tho other sido.
In ronchlng these conclusions thoy woro as
sisted by tho vast amount of testimony taken
from those who hnd been in tho territory and
wero familiar with tho conditions under con
sideration. Personal relations with tho Spanish repre
sentatives wore pleasant at all times, but tliero
wero two critical periods In tho negotiations
which gsvo tho Amorlennsmitcti anxiety until
they wero passed. One of these was ocensionod
by tho Spanish request for tho assumption of
tho Cuban debt, whiol covered more than a
month and during whloh tho Americans never
receded from tho position announced to tho
hpanlards. Likewise In the Philippine mat
ter, the American)), having concluded upon the
concession thnt could bo made nnd presented
tholr position to the Spaniards, would not con
sider any dnpattuie from thnt course, Tho
Americans were very well trentod by tho
French Government, nnd the French peoplo
showered invitations upon the Americans with
a lavish hand. Owing to the ofllcial duties few
of theso could be accepted, and many pleasures
hadtobellvcllhftd forwnnt ot time. If there
was nny sentiment In Pnrls prejudicial to
American Interests the Commissioners nro not
disposed to dl(.cus it.
Judgo Day snys he reels thnt tho trip abroad
hns bettered Ms physicnl condition, nnd thnt
Mrs. Day Is greatly Improved In health slneu
leaving tho United States. She wns seasick on
1 tho return voyage, one dayof which was stormy.
Thero woro a few friends at the station to meet
the Days, including tholr children and a com
mittee from the Bar Assoclntlon. The attor
neys of the county will soon give a formal wel
come to tho Judge, which will take tho form of
a dinner. Jan. 2 Is tho probable date, but It
will bo arranged with reference to the Judge's
couvenlence.
A TALK JTITIT .SEXATOR DAVIS.
He Tells Something About the Work of the
l'eaee ("ominlsiloli In 1'nrli.
Washington, Deo, 25. Senator Cushman K.
Davis. Chairman of the Committee on Foreign
Relations and n member of tho Paris Peace
Commission, spent tho day at homo resting
from the fatigues ot the homoward trip, which
ended with tho presentation ot the draft of
the treaty with Spain to President MoKinley
at the Whtto Houso yestorday. It was an un
usual Christmas oxperionco for tho Senator,
but ho declared to a roporter for This Huh this
evening that ho thoroughly enjoyed It.
"Many friends havo callod upon me in my
den here," ho said. " to extend their congratu
lations and to welcome mo homo. Although
tired out and feeling the relaxation from tho
strain wo havo boon under tho past ten weeks,
tho dny has been a pleasant ond."
Responding to a teqUest for a statement re
garding the work of the commission. Senator
Davis said :
"We had a verr lnborlous time In Paris.
Tho commission enterod upon its work wlthn
dcslro and o determination to finish It at the
earliest possible moment. We had hoped to
conclude It so as to bo ablo to reach homo by
Christmas, but that wo did so, I think, wns
something ot a surprise. Tho reception and
tteatmontof tho commission by the French
people, official and Individual, were all that
could havo been deslrod. Of course, much of
the Spanish securities are hold In France, but
tho sentiment naturally arising out of that
state ot things did not teach us, cortanily In no
way to embarrass us in thedeast."
Senator Dnvls was quite enthuslnstlo In his
comments upon thn magnificence ot the apart
ment In tho Fronch Foreign Olllee whero the
commission held its sessions. " The chamber
Is historic," lie sold. " There tho famous treaty
ot Paris ot 1B50 wns negotiated and signed,
nud thero the Paris tribunal of arbitration ovor
tho linhitng Hen seal fisheries met."
A picture of tho commission while in session
lay upon tho table, and picking it un the Sena
tor desennted briefly upon tho several porsons
in the group. Ho said:
"The Spanish Commissioners wero able,
patriotic, Intelligent men. Our discussions
wero strenuous, but conducted throughout
with dignity nnd decorum. Sollor lllos. tho
Chairman of the Spanish Commission, Is nn
able lawyer, and he nnd his associates woitlilly
discharged the trust committed to them."
Sei.atorDuyls feels tipardnnnblo pride In his
associations with tho negotiation, " It Is," he
said, " one of the most luiiiortniit events In the
diplomatic history ol the woilil.nnd if the peo
plo of my country npurnyJ the results of our
labors 1 shall consider it the most Important
work of my life." .
Doing a shu red that the people ot tho United
States were s.itlstled with the treaty, Honntnr
Davis responded; "I urn highly gratified tn
lenui that It IS so. i were so crowded with
tiio duties pressing upon us thnt wo hud little
or no time to commit tho newspapers or to
gel into communion with sontlment In the
United Stutes. Wo wereofleu compelled to de
elite upon u policy In, liustu, but vv hen the pro.
tocol of our proceedings is published, giving
In lull, ns It will, all our official comuiutilen
tlons ami arguments Iu writing, the peoplo
will lnble fusee that iluitominlsslonerHon
tho part of the Culled States were unlimited
only by an earnest wish to seemo tho fullest
recognition of tho results of tho war,"
Hpenklng. of thd proposition to puy Spain
$2l).0tK),0iH) for her outlay In the Philippines,
helintor Davis i-iild: In such a negotiation us
this neither party hns ltd wuy In everything,
My desire wfis to secure pciico with honor lis
speedily ns possible, to the end that stability
inlulit be; given to tho business Interests of my
country unit thnt It might enter upon that era
of prosperity unequalled iu our history which
iioWbeemHiippnus."
Senator Duvis said he had no knowledge ot
the President' Intentions respecting the
treaty. Thnt hnd not been discussed iu their
interview yesterday, nnd lm hud hud no con
versation with Mr. McKluley upon the subject.
The Honator declined to express: un opinion
upon the treaty further than to say that he had
been assured slnco his return tliut it would be
latlllo.l, hor would Ho talk upon any uatlonul
or International Mil leal question.
"In u fow weeks." ho udded, "I may havo
something to say."
