Autoine Martfiu Shoots His Suspected Injiirfr
and Then hills Himsrlf.
Another of those terrible domestic tragedios so frequent
of late id tli.s city occurred last uigbt in the
Twenty nrst ward. A husband, maddened hy
jealousy, shot hi* wife'* visitor and then
ended his own life by a bullet in the '
brain, The name of the murderer and suicide was Au- i
tome Martens, and that of Lis victim I hunt as Rodgers.
The scene of the tragedy wag iu (rout ol the residence
' of the former, at No 313 Last Twenty-eighth street.
At the above number Martens, whose trade wag that
of a cigar maker, kept a small cigar store on the first
floor, the rear of which is partitioned otf as a sleeping
room and kitchen. 1'uring the daytime he worked at
lug trade In a neighboring cigar factory, leaving
his wife to attend the store. Last night,
shortly bef re ume o'clock, Martens was sitting in the
store. Ins wile being behind the counter, when the door
(i|iened and the young man Rodger* entered. Martin
had for some tiuie past looked upon Rodgers
with a jealous eye, believing him to
tic on terms of criminal intimacy with bis
wife; and only a few days ago he threatened to shoot
him if he again visited her. The appearance of Rodgers
caused Martens to start from his chair, pale with
rage. "Leave my house,'' he shouted, as he drew from j
his pocket a revolver.
Rodgers, seeing the pistol, ran toward the door, but
not before a bullet bad been discharged at him In his
haste to escape he stumbled at the threshold and Martens
was soon at bis side. Mrs. Martens tiud by this
time come from behind the counter. She quickly
jumped between
nrk nrshaxn axd his victim
and before Marteus could again tire :-lie had his hauils
tightly clutched in her own. This momentary
obstacle to the design of the infuriated
man was taken advantage of by Rodgers, who
started to run. In a moment Martens had freed
himself from bis wife and with raised weapon was in
pursuit of the fleeing man. He tired four shots In j
quick succession and Rodgers dropped in the street,
blly feel from the store. Martens, seeing his
victim fall, placed the pistol to his own I
head and tired The bullet entered his braiu |
through the right temple and in an instant he was |
dead. So quickly was the deed committed that the i
two mm my a. most side oy siue?one aeau auu tue ;
oilier dying?before .my other person was on the spot, j
In a few niitiutes, however, the street was crowded ,
with people.
Among the first to arrive were Captain Murphy and
Sergeant Turk, of the Twenty-first preciuct. They
lound Martens dead, but Kodgers still alive. Leaving
the dead tuun they quickly carried Kodgers to the drug
store at the corner of Twenty seventh street and
Third avenue, and at once despatched messengers for
surgical aid. Ambulance Surgeon Almy, of Bollevuo
Hospital, promptly answered the summons and conveyed
the dying man to the hospital. The body of
Martens was now removed to his lute residence to await
the action ot the Coroner.
Investigation inio the history ot Martens' family
revealed a slate of matrimonial infelicity. from the
date of his marriage five years ago, a leeling of dis
trust and jealousy ot his wile affected Martens.
The slightest attention received by In* wife ;
Iroin other men was mOictcm to make him very angry.
The result was one prolonged quarrel between the pair,
as Mrs Martens, rcgurdlcHsol her husband's unlorlunate
disposition, made no endeavor to comply with his
wishes About a year ago Martens opened the store
No. 'J13 Kast Twitity-eighth street and laid in a large
ni? k oi cigars, giviug his wife charge of the business
w hile he continued at Ins trade outside.
Kodgers was a fireman attached to Hook and Ladder
Company No. 7, the location of which is a lew doors
south of Martens' store. He frequently purchased
cigars of Mrs. Martens. He also became acquainted with
her husband A few days before Ntnv Year's Iiay Martens
came home unexpectedly and lound Kodgers
talking to Ins wile in the kitchen at the rear ol the
store His jealousy became aroused and words ensued,
during which he ordered Kodgers from the house, ou ]
last Sunday Kodgers paid another visit to the store 1
ninl Martens threatened to shoot him it he ever caiuc
in again. The visit last night was the only one paid
since that tunc.
After tue quarrel on Sunday Mortens purchased tho
pistol w ith which he committed the latal deed.
A Hkrai.o reporter called at the residence of Mrs.
Martens last night shortly after the tragedy. On tho
floor was stretched at lull length the suicide, w ith a
ghastiy hole in his temple. H s wile, who is about
thirty years old. stood over hiui, looking as
cool and unconcerneti as if nothing unusual
had hap|eued. She betrayed, when questioned, not
the slightest symptom ol grief. Hud t iid the story of
her husband's jealousy with apparent indifference.
Martens was by Lurid a Uelgiun, and about thirty-one
years ol age.

An ambulance had been summoned at the moment of
the tragedy, and the body ol the wounded man was j
speedily conveyed to Bellevue Hospital. There a little
investigation discovered hi* injuries to consist ol a j
wound iti fbe hac> or the neck, another in the left
side and a third tu tlie right arm. A bullet had also
passed through the chin, sinking the breast but not
entering it. Ur. .Smith, with his assistants, probed the
wounds and endeavored to locale the course of the balls.
Considerable difficulty was experienced, however, from
the different directions tney had been fired from, and
not a little irom the patient himself, who had evidently
l>ecn undcflhe influence ot liquor at the time ol the
shooting, led who had not been entirely sobered even

The scene in (lie ward wucre the body of the

In a rambling, incoherent way, the uuhappy man

hanks, which was carried with tho greatest enthu- |
uas in.
The list of officers for the present year, which Is
published below, was unanimously elected, and, after
ioine remarks from the chairman, the lecturer of the :
evening was introduced in the person of Dr. S. Wells .

who has just returned (rout that country I
tiler an absence of forty-two years. During the past j
lew years Dr. Williams has published a Chinese and j
English Dictionary of some 13.000 words or characters,
tnd the well known book called "The Middle Kingdom," ,
which Sir Fredoric Uruco pronounced the very best |
took extunt about China.
The speaker begun by glancing at the climate and
opogrnphy of the Celestial Kingdom and discussing ,
ho influence which they bad exerted upon the national !
harueter. Thence he passed to its religion. The wor- 1
iLnp of ancestors and the peculiar position of tho Em- 1
icror as the Son of Heaven was given an tho reason J
vhy China has never been alllicted with priestcraft as
Ipypt and so many other Eastern nations have. Ho
(escribed tho mode of electing offleiuls id China by
oiiipotltivo examinations. He referred to the spirit
11 progress that has crept into China within tho
nisi quarter of a century so that now, with her
80,000,000 of people, she only wuits lor tho light
f ihc Gospel to place her in the Iront rank of nations,
'he country hud boon thrown open to toreignors, and
he people were anxious to adopt European arts. They
re re, however, more slow to adopt an idea and
'ss inquisitive than their neighbors tiie Japnose.
This peculiarity was shown in the
tct that wiille the latter people bought
leambouts outright, the Chinese merely hired ttem to
r'e whether any money could be inude out of litem,
ii this connection the speaker told a humorous
lory of an ambitious Japanese who undertook
to run u steamboat, hut discovered,
rhen some distance from shore, that
llhnugh he had learned to start an engine he knew
othiug about stopping one, and was, consequently,
bliged to steer his boat round and round |

itg address was brought to a close with a eulogy i

rhom we come, and inakc tbem feel that coming to
Ihrisl is a continuous state ot the soul."
Dr Taylor then rose and said, "What is saving
mhf The dullculiy with this question is its aim- :
llcity. When the apostle said, 'Faith is the substance
ope j for, the evidence of things nut seen,' he de- .
cribcd it not so much by what it is as by what it does, j
aith is the acceptance us true, on the testimony of anther,
that winch lies beyond his own experience or
iscovery. Faith, in the Hiblical sense, is a belief of '
rhal the Bible contains Y'ou regard that book as a
tier Irom (>od; you are sat is fled of its genuineness,
t tells you of things past, and you hold tb?m as indu- I
itahlv true. Son c question whether faith is a merely I
ilelleciual act or whether it contains an element of
rusk Whether it does so or not will de|iend ennroly
u toe nature ot the truth believed. When faith is
lcrely a speculative thing you may he sure the thing
elieved In is not the right thing. The true belief is
lie believing ol the truth. Faun makes the soul stay
uiet, and it is not merely the first act of coming to
hrist; It Is the habit ol the Christian's Inc. We are
ever done believing."
Decently tho Young Men's Christian Association
nceived the Idea of tendering a reception to the
cdical students of New York, and in response to
her guests assembled at Association Hall last evening,
r. William K. Dodge, Jr., the chairman, welcomed
students not only for the evening, but whenever
