Says There's No Truth ill Family Fued Theory. Joseph M. Carrieo, who, with Ms mother, Mr?. Mary Carrlco, was severely stabbed | early Sunday morning at 1238 Half street southeast, is indignant that the trouble should have been ascribed to a family feud. "There arc no rows in my, family," says Mr. Carrlco. "X have lived In this neighborhood for eight year?, and mv reDutatlon and credit can bo easily learned from any of my neighbors. Aa for outside enemies, that is nonsense. The Carrieo family, for morals and respectability, from the colonial davs down to tlie present, will compare favorably with the best. We havo given legislators, doctors, lawyers, merchants ant mechanics to the nation, and, In time of nee>l, many loyal soldiers who fought for the making of the republic.

Ml chael Marino, a marine, doing sentry dujy at the navy yard, Brooklyn, last night fired lils musket point-blank Into a crowd of over 100 people and severely wounded two men. The two men who were shot are James O'Brien, thirty-eight years old, of 485 Grand avenue, a bookkeeper, and Joseph Ryan, twenty-four years old, of 100 Bedford avenue, a shipping clerk. O'Brien Is In the Cumberland Street Hospital, suffering from a flesh wound In the right shoulder, and Ryan, after being treated at the hospital for a wound through the fleshy part of the right arm, went home. Tho crowd that was with the two men started to storm the navy yard fence directly after the shooting to get at the shooter. The timely arrival of the rest of the guard and the officer of the day prevented what undoubtedly would have been a very serious riot. O'Brien and Ryan are members of the Gordon Democratic Association, which .held an outing up the Sound yesterday. The two mnn nra linrl Vtswi** imnkln ,-? iitvu, vr i J yJ iu t iiiriiwa, iiau uct:ii unauin iw go on the outing, but about t) o'clock they went to the wharf near the navy yard to meet the returning excursion boat. There were about a hundred men on the wharf waiting to welcome back the members of the association who had been on tha outing. The high iron picket fence shuts off the navy yard from the street at this point directly in front of the sentry beat where Marino was stationed. From its position on the wharf the crowd had a clear view of the marine pacing up and down with his musket at his shoulder. The boat was late In getting back from up the sound, and the crowd begun to make fun of the sentry. Sang Capt. Jinks. Captain Jinks of the horse marines Fed his troops on pork and beans. Some one chanted this couplet, and then the crowd took it up and sang It in chorus. Marino went on walking back and forth, paying no attention. Finally tiie crowd tired cf its singing and began to call tho 6entry names, at llrst purely in fun, but l.iter with some vindieiiveness. as Marino's complacency evidently didn't please the funmakeis. "1-ook at the tin solder'" shouted one man, adding a few aojectives, and the CI'OWU Just then Marino, enraged, swung round. H id. bringing his gun to his shoulder, tired point blank at the jeerers. The bullet went between the pickets of the fence and pierced Ryan's rig'it forearm, going right through and into thy shoulder of O'Brien, who was standing right behind him. Both Ryan and O'Brien screamed, and in an instant there was intense excitement. Two or three men held up tho two wounded men while the res; of the crowd shouted to Marino to step. He stood with his musket half raised, yelling for the guard, evidently tearing that he was In for serious trouble from the men outside the fence. He was not disappointed. As soon as those close to O'Brien and Ryan found that the two had really been hit by the bullet they set up a cry < f "l.ynch him!" and the whole mob started for the fence. Reaching it. the foremost began to climb up, helped >.? ? twinn ltnltin/1 unH #"/.? o fottr llllniltoa ff looked as if tlie whole crowd would get over the barrier and make It hot for the sentry. Guard to the Rescue. The sentry stood his ground, shouting all the while for the guard, but not attempting to fire liis ^un again. The guard, In charge of the corporal, came running up Just as the first of the fence climbers reached the top of the Iron pickets. I,lning up the guard, the corporal shouted: "Get down off that fence! I'll shoot the first man who trespasses on government property." This threat had some effect. The enraged mob stopped for an Instant, but from UCiJiuu Cttinc inco yj l rj aucaut iiwu fire!" with sundry more or less Insulting epithets meant for the corporal. The climbers began to reach up to the top of tlie fence, and then the officer of the dayarrived. The officer of the day took In the situation at a glance and began to talk to the crowd. He told them that they could do no good by coming over the fence; that there were several hundred more marines than those In the guard, and that they were only making trouble for themselves. When he got the crowd a little quieter he explained that Marino was already under arrest and that he would be turned over to the civil authorities In the morning. POOB KIDS HAPPY TODAY.

Chief Beit's plan to have the exhibits In a floored tent was discussed, many of the committee doubting the wisdom of putting the exhibits under canvas. The chief was instructed to keep an eye out for any building that would be available for the purpose. "Funeral of Wr? The funeral of Mrs. M. K.

LIFTS THE MARRIAGE BAN ENGLISHMAN MAY NOW MARRY DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. _ MX * _ . _ ? ? ijoug struggle to .rass xne jsui Through Parliament?Its Remarkable History. LONDON. August 27.?Marriage with a deceased wife's sister has finally become legalized In Great Britain, the house of lords last evening1 having, by 98 to M rotes, passed the bill sanctioning such unions. Th? history of this bill dates back to the reign of Henry VIII, who forbade a man to marry the sister of his deceased wife. The law then passed was later construed to mean that such a marriage might be Invalidated, but in 1835 such a union was made not only voidable, but void, In fact. This was Lord I-yndhurst's act, under which previous marriages of the kind were declared legal, but later ones Illegal. At the time the understanding was that the prohibition should be removed at the next session of parliament. Nevertheless, expectations In this respect were not realized, and time after time the commons or lords refused to Interfere. A Stubborn Fight. In 1841 Lord ThornclifTe endeavored to have the lords repeal the act, and the next year the commons defeated a similar hill hv a r, a rmm T_ 1QIT - 1 u ?vn uicu gin* All xcni th IUJ" fli commission was appointed to examine the marriage laws, and the result was another bill, introduced In the commons In 1849 byMr. Stuart Wortley. This bill passed Its second reading, but did not reach Its final stages. Next year It was passed. In 18M Lord St. Germans Introduced the bill In the lords, but it was again defeated. In 18r>5 the comftions again assented to the bill, but the lords remained obdurate. Since then the measure has been pressed in varied form a score of times, but always the lords has thrown it out. Sometimes, too, the commons dissented, but usually approved. There was no change in the lords, even in 1879, when Kin?t Edward, then Prince of Wales, introduced the bill. On that historic occasion the vote was 101 against 81. Law in Canada. Until 1882 the law in Canada was as the in England previous to the act of 1836; but in 1880 Mr. Desire Girouard (now Mr. Justice, and father of Sir Percy Glrouard) Introduced a measure to make marriage legal with the deceased wife's sister. It was seconded by Mr. Cameron of North Victoria, and eloquently argued by them both. The opposition to the measure was bas^fi nrimarilv on sprintiiral trrrmn^a it being held that Leviticus, xviil:18, and xx:21, forbade the marriage. The very boat authority, however, declared the Interpretation put upon these passages to be farfetched and unreasonable. The fact that the Church of England prayer book forbade the marriage was held to be due to to an imperfect translation from the original Hebrew. It was shown that the Jews never construed the verses to prohibit the marriages. In short, the case was made conclusive on the grounds of scriptural interpretation. Principal Objections. The objections founded on social grounds appear to have been more formidable if lfss concrete. Nobody was able to arise and plainly state them, but there were many vague and mournful allusions to the deplorable social conditions that would result in families where a man's &!ster-in-law was domiciled and his wife living. After all, the chief difficulty was found In the fact that tha Itoman Catholic Church disapproved of the marriages, and that tho Church of England forbado them. The house hesitated to take a step that might be construed as an affront to either of theso bodies. Difficulty was also encountered In the marriage laws of Nova Scotia, which existed by an imperial act, and which it was not in the power of the dominion government to amend. Finally, after great tribulation, the bill worked Its way through the house and inlo the statutes of the country in ISSl!. That there has been any liarin aone as a result there Is no evidence to show. With the passage of the law in Great Britain the principle that marriage with a deceased wife's sister is right will be recognized in England fts regards such unions effected in British possessions which have removed the prohibition. FALCONIO IN DANGEB, Hasp Narrow Escape in Long Island Sound. A dispatch from Nuw York states that as a result of a sudden squall yesterday In Long Island sound Archbishop Falconlo, successor to Mgr. SatolU ns papal delegate to Washington, narrowly escaped drowning.
