A BOULEVARD TO BALTIMORE.
Thf Paper on the Plan of Connecting
the Two Cities Read In Baltimore.
A plan for connecting Washington with Bal
timore by a magnificent boulevard was dis
?usaed in a paper prepared by Mr. John C. K.
H> ine and read before a meeting of the land
.ord's protective association of Baltimore last
evfiling. Mr. Heine says that the boulevard
between the two cities should be made wide j
and well graded. It would connect Washing
ton. a city that will ere long, it is calculated,
contain several million inhabitants, by an
avenue at least ISO feet wide with Baltimore. I
connecting there with Fulton avenue, where it |
is 190 feet wide, and terminating in Druid Hill j
park, the Snest natural city park in the world. I
The route of the boulevard, after going a few
miles from Bultimure, should be over the Wash
ington turnpike. The road bed should be com
pleted by 1S9& and it would then be one of the
greatest attractions at the Columbian exposition.
DIVIDING TBI BOJ.D I5TO SECTIONS.
He suggests that the road might be divided
into sections?one of 30 feet in width should
be macadamized and n->ed exclusively for
he;ivy travel; another of equal width should be
zn.idi of good bard mat.iial for foundation,
rounded and topped off with tine gravel, and
should i>e ii?ed exclusively fur carriages and
light wagons; auother of equal width should 1
t?e constructed of asphalt for light carriages, ?
bicycle* and the like?this would be peculiarly
desirable in wet and wintry weather; and
another, also 30 feet wide, should be set apart
for rapid transit, either by electric motors or
cable cars. Thus there would be four parallel
roads in t ae boulevard, leaving still 30 feet for ,
two sidewalks of 15 feet each on either side of j
the boulevard."
THE EXPENSE.
Mr. Heine thinks that the road with all its
embelhsnmenta would probably cost ?50,000
per mile. His plan for securing the money for
the coet of constructing the road is as follows:
"The legislature should pass a bill to author
ise the construction of the boulevard, aud ap
point say five men, one from each of the coun
ties of Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Prince
George's. Howard and Montgomery, to establish
the wuith aud grade, to assess tha damages and
benefit* to the property owners along the road
for about one-forin the entire cost, and provid
ing for the balance by the sale of the franchise
to an electric motor, cable or other company,
which should realize from $250,000 to ?500.000.
The counties through which the road would pass
should be required to construct the bridges and
to issue from t100.000 to $300,000 bonds each for
the construction of the road-bed. This would ag
gregate from two-thirds to four-fifths of the en
tire cost of constructing the greatest boulevard
on earth. The city council should be empow
ered to do the same from Franklin street along
Fnlton avenue where, it is iess than 100 feet
wide. Congress, no doubt, would do the tume
thing ana pruvide most liberally for this pro
ject. which will give an opportunity for the
immense population centering in Washington
to build country villas. In addition thereto
many liberal contributions would be received
from the enterprising merchants and capital
ists on the line of the boulevard.
He is of the opinion that this would be a bet
ter plan than to organize a company to build
the road and graat the privilege of chargiug
tolls, as the latter would undoubtedly be high.
WA!?Hl:?mtt?'s TETUBK.
In conclusion Mr. Heine says: "Washington
is undoubtedly the* most beautiful city in
America aud the best shaded, too. 'Washing
ton can become a city of several millions of
people without any manufactures and without
commerce.' The latter belong properly to Bal- i
tirnore. Its society idone is cosmopolitan, j
Men of wealth and leisure go to Washington I
aud locate there. The boulevard will afford j
theiu every desirable opportunity of chang- j
lUf, literary quiet for rural life or coming to j
Ba timore and hearing aud feeling the din of
industrv. lis social attractions are pre-emi
nent. Editors, lawyers, statesmen, authors,
artiste, ah men of taste aud culture, who love
retirement and social companionship with men
of eqa.il culture, seek their homes there. But
they must nave an outinsr. au avenue into God's
'ree uir. into nature's haunts, and how better
get it than along the wide and graded Colum
bian boulevard/ The little towns outside of (
Washington along its lice to Baltimore will i
soon be joined and conuecied. und the thriving '
little towns on its line outside of Baltimore will i
grow the fr.ster on grouni free and in fee held.
M Denis. Belay. Elk Bidge. Hanover Junction,
Laurel. Bladeusburg, will be links of a mighty
chain of towns."
THE CATHOLIC CONGRESS.
Arranging for the Entertainment?The
Centennial Illumination.
At a met tint.: of Catholic laymen at Cardinal
Gibbons'resii ence in Baltimore last evening
trrangemenu were made for entertaining dele
gates to the Catholic congress to be held in Bal
timore during the Catholic centennial celebra
tion in November. The Catholic Benevolent
'egion took upon itself the part of providing
luncheon for the delegates in the Concordia
opera house. On motion of Mr. Milton E.
Smith of this city, the officers of the legion
were constituted a committee who are to take
entire charge of this part of the entertainment
There waa some discussion as to whether it
was uesirable to have an illumination of only
the Catholic public building*, churches, halls,
schools and convents, ratner than a general
illumination of all the dwellings occupied by
Catholic families. Cardiual Gibbons said the
matter had been fully talked over at a recent
meeting of the clergy, at which he was present,
and that it was deemed advisable to ask every
Catholic family to illuminate on Monday night.
November 11. There were many aud cogent
reasous for this, he said, but it was not inteuded
that the Catholic public buildings were not to
be illuminated in a fitting manner.
The celebration wui begin on Sunday. No
vember 10. with a pontificial high mass and
sermon at the cathedral. In the evening of
the same day there will be solemn vespers and
a sermon. Monday the Catholic congress will
meet at the Concordia and will be in session
two days. Monday night Cardinal Gibbons
and the other prelates will hold a reception at
the Concordia between 7 .30 and 9 o'clock, and
the general illumination will also occur. The
big torchlight procession, with probably 15,000
men in line, will take place Tuesdty evening.
The ceremonies will close November 13 with
the opening of the Catholic University of
America. The Catholic l,at_, of this city wil!
hold a torchlight procession in the evening, in
which the Catholic societies of Baltimore are
to be invited to participate.
Cardiual Gibbons appointed the executive
and press con.nnttees to look after the arrange
ment* of the celebration. They are ?? follows:
Executive. Charles J. Bonaparte. Pierre C.
Dug an. John M. Gets, Henry A. Bosse, J. D.
Wheeler. E. V. Hermnnge. and Dr. K. H. Gold
smith; pre**, George W. Abcll, E. V. Her
mange. Felix Agnus. Wm. J. O'Brien, John
behmitt, and Milton E. Smith, of Washington.

TWO YEARS IN PRISON.
Et? Hamilton Found Guilty and Sen
tenced to that Punishment.
At Mar'* Landing. N. J., yesterday Judge
Beed. in charging the jury after the argument#
in the Eva Hamilton case had been delivered,
?aid: -Ibe whole matter hinges on the plea of
the defense. The blow may hare been ? truck j
in ?elf-defcnse. but when a deadly weapon is
uaed in self-defenee it materially alter* the
case." |
Continuing, the judge dwelt upon the fact
that the knife thrust was a deadly one. and the
onlr way in which the plea of the defense could ^
possibly be tenable was that the blow was
struck to save the defendant's life; that she
was in imminent danger and had to deal the
dcadlv blow to save her own life. His charge
was clearly against the prisoner. He instructed
the jurv to give her the benefit of unv doubt
as to the character of the crime. They might
bring in a verdict of ussault and battery, if
they thought her knife thrust was not mali
cious; but if they viewed the matter from the
standpoint that she reached around to stab the
nurse, then there was no reason why they
shoulil not return a verdict in accordance with
the indictment.
The jury then filed out of the court room
for the purpose of deliberating on a verdict.
The closing scenes of the trial were exceed
ingly dramatic. When word was sent to Mrs.
Hamilton that tlie jury were out deliberating
whether she was guiity or not she excitedly
paced her little prison and frequently looked
out of her window upon the court nouse wherein
the jury were balloting.
A VERDICT AGREED UPON.
It was precisely 3 o'clock when the jury an
nounced that they had arrived at a verdict and
filed into their respective seats. The court
room tras crowded and the spectators whispered
audible comment* upon the probable verdict
until called to order by the court.
At 3:15 o'clock Sheriff Johnson led in the de
fendant through the side door of the court
house.
Mrs. Hamilton looked pale and fatigued, but
walked with a firm step through the narrow
aisles and paid no attention to the scrutinizing
gaze of the crowd on both sides of her. When
brought within the railing she sank wearily into
the arm chair, directly lacing the jury. She,
w.is dressed the same as yesterday, except that
the navy blue directoire was missing. When
seated she nervously twisted her fingers, her
hands being covered with pearl-colored gloves.
Her counsel took a position behind her and
smiled at the jury as if expecting a victory, and
whispered to bis client, who nodded her down
cast head as if in approval. Her head was
turned aside from the prosecuting attorney,
who sat in close proximity.
Within five minutes after the now thor
oughly broken-spirited woman faced tho jury
the clerk of the court called the jury and in
quired:
"Gentlemen, have you agreed upon a ver
dict?"
Foreman ,Samuel Beeves responded in a sten
torian voice: "We have."
By this time the court room had become
silent, and when the foreman answered. "We
find the defendant
OCILTY AS CHARGED IS THE INDICTMENT,"
Mrs. Hamilton gave a perceptible start and
lifted her head for the first time, turning to
ward her counsel with an appealing glance,
and then toward the members of the jury, who
looked her in the face. Then her head sunk
upon her breast, but she uttered no comment.
Counsellor I'erry asked the court to poll the
jury. As each one replied to the qnery of the
clerk "guilty." the scene became almost tragic,
as the condemned woman apparently had not
a friend in the court room to offer her cousola
tion, even her husband having gone away, as
if unwilling to remain to wituess her distress.
The jury, it is understood, took two ballots,
the first resulting in a vote of eleven for con
viction and oue for acquittal. The man who
voted for acquittal said that he would agree to
a verdict of guilty of assault and battery, but
not of atrocious assault. Finding the other
eleven men determined, he finally submitted
to the will of the majority.
Judge Beed. alter the polling of the jury,
sternly said: "Evangeline Hamilton." Then he
hesitated and, after a momentary pause, said:
"Stand up."
The woman arose with an effort and faced
the judge, Counsellor Perry standing beside
her.
TWO TEARS IX THE STATE PRISON.
"You have been convicted of a grave charge,
that of atrocious assault upon Mary Ann Don
nelly, the extreme penalty for which is ten
years. But there are extenuating circum
stances in this case, and the sentence I am
about to impose should be considered lenient
in a case of conviction for atrocious assault I
sentence you to two years' confinement in the
state prison at Trenton and you shall stand
committed until the costs of the case shall be
paid."
Not by a movement or look did the con
demned woman betray auy emotion. She
stood in a listening attitude while Counsellor
I'erry advised her to bear up and be of good
cheer.
She resumed her seat and conversed with
several reporters who took advantage of the
occasion to ply her with questions until inter
fered with by Sheriff Johnson, whose policy it
has been to preveut any communication be
tween his prisoner and press representatives.
Mrs. Hamilton condemned her husband's ap
parent desertion and made several remarks
concerning his relationship with the nurse
previous to the affray which has lauded her in
jail. She said the sentence was hard to bear.
She was willing and apparently anxious to talk,
but was led away by the sheriff, she following
him oat of the court room. She looked pale,
but was not agitated. She entered the sheriff*s
residence by the front door and proceeded to
her attic prison, which had been furnished lux
uriously by her infatuated husband when she j
was first incarcerated and before the full ex
posure of her past career and the deception j
practiced npon him had caused him to leave
her to her fate.
Mrs. Hamilton will be taken to state'* prison
next Saturday morning in company with a half
a dozen criminals couvicted at this term of the
court. She will have to serve a twenty months'
term, providing she gets the usual allowance
of two months per annum for good behavior.
It is said that Mrs. Hamilton repeatedly
solicited an interview witn her husband while
he was here, in order to explain some personal j
matters, but he declined to go near her.
THE BABY TO BE CARED FOR.
Mrs. Elizabeth Bupp, proprietress of Noll |
cottage, wbere the row occurred, wu seen last
night. She (aid she was caring for Baby Bea
trice under instructions from Itobert Bay Ham- |
ilton. wnotn she saw at coi^t, and who said ho
would decide within a day or two what dispo
sition to make of th? innocent child, the cause
of all trouble. Mr. Hamilton said to Mrs. Bupp
that he would never set foot in Atlantic City
again, a* it would recall many incidents tnai
Were full of bitterness to him.

LOUISIANA SECURITIES.
Forgery Added to Fraudulent Floating
of State Beads.
Investigation by the Louisiana officials and
parties largely interested in state securities
continues to develop new cases of fraud every
day. It now appears that forgery has been
added to the fraudulent floating of bonds on
the state, through the criminal carelessness of
the state's servants.
In addition to the 9303.600 of consolidated
bonds upon which interest payments have
just been stopped, and mmy of which, pre
sumably all, have been surreptitiously pat
upon the market, instead of being cancelled,
there have been discovered in private hands a
number of the 4 per cents, known as constitu
tional #bonds, that are clearly an over-issue
made in fraud. How the blank forms got out
of the possession of the proper custodian; who
filled iLeni up and affixed the signatures of the
governor and state treasurer may be disclosed
through the crimiuul courts.
The fact is settled that, while the highest
legal issue of the ? 100 series of these bonds is
No. 200. numbers at least as high as 242 are
outstanding, and of the #600 series, the total
limit of which is No. 30, as high as No. 56 are
afloat. To what extent this fraud may go and
its ramifications a short time will disclose.
A Reform to Which They Are Pledged.
Frum the ttuladeU hui Press.
A resolution attacking the civil service re
form law u going five or ten years beuce to be
as awkward a bit of "record" for an ambitious,
rising public man to face as a greenback reso
lution proved to be after 1879 or a pro-slavery
resolution after I860, and the hot-beaded young
republicans who mistake the clatter of disap
pointed politicians for the sober sentiment of
the country will do well to leave to some oue
else the proposition of resolutions denouncing
a reform to which the republican party stands
pledged in every state iu the Onion.
There has been unusual activity of late in
the cut-nail market at Wheeling, W. Va., and
'he mills are more generally employed than
for a '.oug time past. The price is now firm at

tories for regular average assortment*.
EXCITEMENT IN DUNG ANN ON.
A Meeting Organized by English Lib
erals In County Tyrone Proclaimed.
The prosperous market town of Dungairoon,
County Tyrone, Ireland, is in a perfect frensy
of excitement and every man, woman and
child in the place is ranged on one side or the
other of a heated political controversy, in which
nearly the whole surrounding country seems |
disposed to take a hand.
Nearly a week ago a number of English lib- |
erals, who are traveling through Ireland with
the view of (tudying the home rule question on
native soil, interested themselves to organize
in Dungannon a public meeting in the interest |
of home rule. The date was fixed for last night.
For nearly a whole week the fact that such a
meeting was to be held wait well known to
everybody in County Tyrone, and not a single
word of objection came from the police authori
ties. Last night, however. Market sauare,
where the meeting was to have been held, was
filled with armed polico and placards placed
proclaiming the meeting.
This action of the authorities excites the
most intense indignation among those in sym
pathy with the object of the meeting and a
deputation of Englishmen who were chiefly
instrumental in organizing called upon the
magistrate to protest against this attack upon
the right of free speech. They were told that
the meeting hud been proclaimed because it
seemed certain that if it were permitted blood
shed would result, as the Orangemen proposed
to organize a counter meeting only a stone's
throw away in case the home rulers assembled.
No more serious consequences are yet re
ported except a few broken heads, the result of
isolated disturbances; but as feelings run very
high and the police are nearly all concentrated
on the scene of the proclaimed meeting, news
from that point is awaited with considerable
anxiety.
JOHN L.'S SKCOND THOUGHT.
Sullivan Started to Pulverize a Boston
Editor, but was Finally Dissuaded.
A Boston special to the Philadelphia Inquirer
says: John L. Sullivan was much offended to
read in the evening edition of the Advertiser a
rather sensational account of his visit on Mon
day to the Adams house and of his conduct
there. So yesterday he declared his intention
later in the day to visit the editorial rooms of
the paper in question and have a "go" with the
editor. The editor is William E. Barrett,
speaker of the last legislature and a very mild
mannered sort of young man, who looks very
little like a person who would welcome a visit ,
to his sanctum from an angry prize fighter.
John's friends suggested to him that Editor
Barrett might be one of that class of editors
who regard the possession of a seven-shooter
as a prerequisite to the management of a suc
cessful newspaper and that the sight of John's
stalwart figure in the editorial den might be
greeted with a dose of lead from the editor's
pistol, especially if Sullivan entered with an
evident purpose of "doing'' the editor up. I
To this possibility John replied that his friends
need have no fear, and that if Editor Barrett
should draw a '-pop" two could play at the
same game and it would be a question merely
of who got the drop first. In the expectation
that something remarkable might occur in
Newspaper row, about 4 p.m. a small crowd of j
people gathered on the street awaiting the
coming of Sullivan, but they were doomed to
disappointment, for friends of John had in the
meantime prevailed on him to give the editor
another chance, so that Editor Barrett in a
certain sense is put on his future good be
havior, subject to the pugilist's sweet will. As
for Mr. Barrett, he is all oblivious of bis nar
row escape and little knows how near the
''most respectable daily in New England" came
to losing its editor.
The Virginia Midland 'railroad has made a
big deduction in its freight charges, cutting
them down 25 per cent.
