Cain said after his nrrest that his
troubles began on n northbound Ninth
avenue elevated train when a passenger
remonstrated with him for smoking a
cigar on the platform of the car. Two
or three other paasqngers, all of whom
were white, took sides with the first man
who objected to Cain's smoking. A
dispute that lasted for many hlocks re
sulted, so Cain says, and finally one of the
passengers slapped his face.
Cain has just finished serving a sen
tence of nine yesrs antl seven months
for stubbing to death Richard L. Bell,,
a reporter, In front of the Bijou Theatte
in Broadway, in June.- 1900. Bell died a
week later. At the time of the trial ChIii
said that Bell hud insulted him nnd that
he had used n knife in self-defence.
After the slap last night Cain, who
had been 'drinking, announced that he
was going to get off nt the lotth street
station to get another drink The pas
senger who had first quarrelled with
Cain about smoking followed the negro
down into the street, with two or three
more of th passengers 'railing behind
They had Just reached the pnverrenl
under the elevated track when the negro
and the passenger got into n scuffle.
Karly in tho light Cain pulled out a

sharp blade about five Inches long. A

rel with Cain on the e cvated station saw
the flnsh of the knife he ran nwav through
