Hains on the yacht lub float, the families of Annis and Capt. Hains were neighbors in the Hyde Park section of Flushing two and a half years igo. Annis was a native of Flushing. "When he engaged in the advertising business in New York and married Helen Von Henoerbein. eight years ago. he moved to the Hyde Park section. Hains at that time had Just been assigned to the quartermaster-is department and was not obliged to live within the boundary of any particular army station. With his young wife he took a house near that of the Annises. The two families soon got on terms of intimacy and frequently dined together. I^ater Capt. Hains was transferred to Fort Monroe, and the Annises came to Manhattan to live. During Capt. Hains' professional ab- . senees Annis visited Mrs. Hains at Fort Monroe. T. Jenkins Hains was staying there at the time and warned his brother about the visits. Capt. Hains , soon afterward was detailed to duty at Fort Hancock. Last spring he was sent with the transport Crook to the Pacific. While he was away his brother again warned him about Annis and told him i of a visit which Mrs. Annis had paid to | a house in West 47th street and an , Illness she had sufTered. When Capt. Hains returned home he immediately ordered his wife to leave and later sent ] his brother to serve divorce papers on her at her parents' home at Winthrop, Mass. . , All the relatives and friends of the murdered man blame T. Jenkins Hains much more than the captain for the tragedy. They contend that he Instigated the murder by his spying and i talebearing. i Interest in Army Circles. Naturally, the shooting: has caused a tremendous shock at Fort Hamilton, where Capt. Halns and his wife for- 1 nerly liv?d and where the Incidents to \ which the wife confessed took ^tlace. ' Lieut. Col. Ludlow, the commandant, \ mew both the Halns brothers, and also i lad a slight acquaintance with Annls, j who was a frequent visitor to the post, i tt was through his acquaintance with :he captain and his wife, the command- 1 int said, that Annig became a member j >f the "army set." i "The last time I saw the men together . "hey were as good friends as it is pos- 1 tlble for men to be," Col. Ludlow com- ' hented. "I fcappen to know that when Hapt. Hains was called away from here i o enter the transport service?about a i rears ago?he turned over his automobile i 0 Annls and asked htm to use It as If It were his own. And he also asked that i \nnis come to the fort and take Mrs. 1 tains out driving once In a while. < "Annls accepted the machine and fre- 1 luently drove out with Mrs. Hains. i Vfany times he brought his own wife l Llong, and they had parties of three, i rhe two women seemed to be the best i >f friends, too. I never saw anything >ut of the way in the conduct of Annls ind Capt. Hains' wife. "Capt. Hains came to this post durng the command of my predecessor, "ol. Grimes. His position was post juartermaster and constructing quarermaster, and he has always been -egarded as one of the most efficient >fficers In the service. He was not exictly a lovable man. having a fiery temper. which, strangely, was coupled with [ 1 rather austere manner. But of his iblllty there is no doubt. "As I said, he left here to go to the ransport service. He made a couple of :rlps between San Francisco and Manila, ind also one to Alaska. Then last May le returned here very suddenly. That was the time?I hear now?when his brother, Jenkins, made accusations against his wife and Annls. Rupture With Wife. "I remember his return well. He and lis wife, on the. first and second days, teemed as loving as ever. There was no ilgn of trouble. It was on the third day hat the split occurred, gnd I heard at hat time of the confession. "The story I got?and It came to me , iretty straight?was that Gen. Halns, 2apt. Halns and Jenkins Hains all were >resent with the wife, and that one or mother of them had a revolver in his land when Mrs. Halns signed the paper. , "She went away on the next day. The -aptaln stayed two weeks, and then was elieved from transport duty, getting an isslgnment as captain of the 48th Company of Coast Artillery at Fort Hancock, Sandy Hook." Col. Ludlow said he did not know Jentins Halns very well, though he had leen him frequently about the post. There was a tragic incident in the elder brother's earlier life, the colonel said, which irejudiced him against the man. "I was at Fortress Monroe about 1900," le said, "when Gen. Halns and Thornton lenkins Halns were there. Jenkins, as hey called him. wag a civilian, of course, is he is now. One day he and another rhap went out in a sailboat. The boat reurned carrying the other man's body. He lad been shot through the heart. ' Feeling Strong Against Haines. At the clubhouse of the Bay side Yacht ?lub yesterday the club's barge was at : lalf mast and sorrow was general over he killing of Annis, who was a popular nenVber. < Feeling against the Hains brothers was equally strong, members declaring that T. fenkins Hains had been talking to them or some time relative to the purchase of ^ eal estate, and that the explanation of lis visit to the club fiaurday .was his deire to meet an agent with whom he had ] in engagement. They also declared hie, , vhile talking real estate on Saturday, ] asually asked where Annis was, and ! earned he was out in one of the small ( >oats. . Among the new developments in ' the ase was the discovery that Annis had re- j eived several threatening letters within . he last few days. These letters, accord- ] ng to Annis' fellow club members of the , layside Yacht Club, were found in his , lockets after his death by one of their , lumber. Harvey Rockwell, who had been , he dead man's most intimate friend, and vere turned over to District Attorney . )arrin by Rockwell. Letters Carried Threats. 1 One of these was said to have been re- j eived by the dead man no later than i Friday, warning him of danger at the :lubhouse. Rockwell told of the exist- 1 ince of the letters yesterday, but beyond laying they were of value to the prosecuion would not discuss their contents. , "I sliall give the package to the district ] ittorney tomorrow," he said. "Until then ! will tell no one about their contents." Charles A. arch-Field, a club member, 1 laid he would appear as a witness espe- 1 tally against T. Jenkins Hains. He said le could have knocked the pistol out of ?apt. Hains' hand easily and saved Annis' j ife if the brother had not deliberately hrnot iVia mnasla A# Hist waannn avoina# .*? ? UUill? IIIUMI1U Vft i?10 fTVWjl?Q lis body and told him that he would be ihot If he lnterferred. "The fact is," said Edward Rogers, ipeaking for a company of the members, 'we are satisfied that the club was derided upon long ago for the place of kiting. Talked Beal Estate. "When the two men arrived at the club :hey went about as though looking for somebody. T. Jenkins Hains said to Birch-Field that he had an engagement with Henry L. Jesperson to see about the lurchase of some real estate. He talked -eal estate with him for a while and then Fred A. Storm, Jr., came along and was ntroduced as one who had some to sell. "He declared he would rather buy of Fesperson. as he was a friend who would lave his commissions. Birch-Field stood iy during the talk and in the coArse of it Fenkins asked him where Annis was, in i casual way. He was told Annis was on hat boat numbered 11. The talk about -eal estate ended soon after." "Jesperson." said L*eo Bugg. a real esate dealer who stood by. "works for me, >ut had no engagements with Hains. The 'act is that about six weeks ago T. Jentins Hains came to my place to see Jes>erson about some land. Subsequently he nade two or three engagements, but lever kept them, always telephoning to :ancel on one ground or another. ..The en. _ _ x / / gagements were invariably for Saturday. We now believe that they were made and the real estate talk made for the purpose of having some legitimate excuse for coming down here where Annis spent so much of his time." Capt. H&ins Unmoved. f. "At no time yesterday was Capt. Hains excited. The excited one was his brother, Jenkins. Jenkins seemed to be managing the entire affair just as he had arranged the real estate meetings," Mr. Rogers continued. "I was on the float when the shooting took place and saw everything from the first shot, and was one of those Jenkins Hains threatened. "When I heard the first shot it did not sound particularly loud. I looked around and there was Capt. Hains, kneeling, shooting away under the boom of the boat at Annis. who had nothing but a bathing suit on. Birch-Field, at the first shot, started to grasp Peter Hains. Thornton at once put the revolver he had against Birch-Field's stomach and ordered him to stand back or be filled with lead. Birch-Field did as ordered. I got near the captain about this time, but when the brother pushed his weapon in my face I stopped also. By this time all but two of the shots were fired. "Annis started to step out of his boat, but fell into the water and made two strokes toward land before I got hold on his clothes. Edwin Andrews, Jr., came to my aid and we pulled him on the float. The brothers were then In ?the center of a group of members. Jenkins had his weapon and was swinging it to and fro. while Burton N. Downs was demanding that he give It up. "Then the captain told him to. 'This is a club of gentlemen,' he said. 'Give up the gun.' 'Shall I?' asked Jenkins. 'Certainly!' Baid the captain. Then Jenkins broke his weapon open, called attention to thefact that none of the cartridges had been exploded and passed them over. "I then picked up the captain's gun. which was lying empty on the float, and asked him why a place filled with women and children should have been selected for such a crime. The captain said nothing, but Jenkins spoke for both. " 'Well.' said he 'we have been trying to keep him from doing this thing a long time.' _i._ 1 *9 ft. 1 J A 1 _ JAlSUlKe, ' DH1U AUX11S. "Meantime Annls was lying on the float. The captain was near and to him he said, 'You have made an awful mistake, captain.' 'Perhaps so," said the captain, 'But I don't think so.' Then Annls turned bo John Olsen. one of the boatment, and asked. 'John, do you have men do as this in Sweden? This fellow never gave me a chance.' "By this time Dr. Houghton arrived, followed by a policeman. At the doctor's luggestion the policeman asked if Hains was the man who shot him. 'Yes.' said &nnnis, 'that is the man.' Then as the policeman started to go away he called out, 'No: that is the coward!' "Annls kept his nerve all the time." said Joseph E, Hill, with whom the dead man was racing. "Tell him about his talk with Rockwell at the hospital." "Yes," said Mr. Rogers. "Harvey was it the hospital with him before the doctors etherized. He passed him a statement an which was written 'Shot by Capt. Hains. U.S.A., August 15.' Annls signed It at once in a hand clear as he ever put to a check. Then he turned to Rockwell and said, 'Good-bye, old man, I may not see you again.' " Another Account. Charles H. Roberts, who helped to pull Annls out of the water after he had been shot, and who was prevented from going to his-assistance by T. Jenkins Hains' revolver, told a similar story of the tragedy yesterday: "I was standing not twenty feet away, and saw the whole thing. Annis was seated at the tiller of his sloop, bringing her to the float. Louis Harway, who was in the boat with Annis, was forward, warding her olf from the float. Peter Hains saw Harway first, and, walking up to him, pressed his revolver against his chest. Harway, thinking the performance a Joke, playfully brushed the captain's arm away. "Hains by that time had realized his mistake, and, crouching down so as to get on a level with Annls, who, as I say, was sitting in the stern of the boat, empllail kU ? ncu iuo tcvuivcr iui? mm. Annis was In his bathing auit, unarmed and unprepared. With the firing: of the first shot Mrs. Annis, who, with fully half a hundred women and children, was on the pier watching: the preparations for the usual Saturday afternoon races, called out shrilly, 'Look out, Will!' "Almost at the same time I rushed toward Capt. Hains, but before I had gone two steps his brother, T. Jenkins Hains, stood before me, a revolver pressed against me. 'Stand back,' he shouted. "This is a matter between these two." I naturally hesitated. Charles A. Birchfield then attempted to go to the assistance of Annis, and Jenkins turned from me to him, calling out, 'Stand back, or I fire.' Dying Man Fell Into Bay. "By that time," continued Roberts, "Peter Hains had completed his work. Annis, with the bullets in him, rose from his seat in the boat and attempted to step from it to the float. One of the bullets had lodged in his knee, however, and as he stood up his leg gave way under him and he toppled over into the bay. "Wounded to death as he was, Annis still bad the marvelous grit to try and swim to the float. He took two strokes and this brought him near enough for me to grab him and oull him onto the float. Meantime John Tonning, our boatman, had knocked the now useless weapon out of the hands of Peter Halns. It lay on the .float as I turned from putting a bundle of khll cloth under Annls' head, and I picked It up. "T. Jenkins Halns still stood with his weapon in hand, however, and for a time refused to surrender it. There was no violence attempted. "Me&rle L Downs, Edward Andrews, )r.. Joseph Hill and several other members of the club faced the two brothers and simply demanded that T. Jenkins Halns give over his revolver. Peter Halns, who was much the cooler of the two. Anally remonstrated with his brother, and persuaded him to surrender his weapon. Before doing so, however, T. Jenkins Halns, apparently afraid that some one of us might turn his own weapon against him, broke open the breach of the revolver and emptied the chambers, pouring the cartridges Into his hand, saying: *You will be good enough to observe that none has been .exploded.' "Annls, who was moaning faintly, stretched out In the float, then turned to Peter Halns and said: 'Captain, you have made a horrible mistake.' Peter Halns hesitated a minute, and replied. *1 may have, but I don't believe so.' Annls then turned to our Swede boatman and asked: 'John, have they got cowards like these In your country?' No Hope for Annie. "By this time Dr. Henry Houghton had arrived. A brief examination convinced him that nothtng could be done to save Annie. At the suggestion of Mr. BirchHeld he pulled out a torn envelope from his pocket and wrote on It. 'Shot by Capt. Peter C. Hains, U.S.A.' This he gave to Annis, who with a Arm hand signed his full name, 'William E. Annis.' "The others on the float had been trying to get some explanation as to the cause of the shooting from the two brothers. Finally Thornton Hains, who had filled a pipe and was comfortably smoking. said: " Tve been trying to keep him from doing this.' "Annis kept up his nerve to the end. Before being placed under ether he told his friend, Harvey Rockwell, who sat at his bedside: 'Good-bye, Harvey. I may never see you again.' " "Annis was game all through," said Commodore William E. Johns of the club. "F was not here, but every one who was says be did not lose his nerv> cnce. None of us here in the club who loved him would have expected anything else." Army officers in Washington are Intensely interested in the Hains-Annis murder, not only because of the prominence of the family in military circles, hut because the case of the young officer will sooner or later come before the judge idvocate general and Secretary of War. It is not the custom of the department, however, to act in such cases until after the cevil courts have acted, although they may do so.t In time of war the status of Capt. Hains would he quite different from what It is now, for the flfty-eighth article of war provides that officers may be tried by oourt-martial for .murder. But. in geace, no mlUtary-coart-matl^l can legal I ly try an office** or an enlisted man tor murder. It could try Ahem for manslaughter and lesser offenses. While he is field in civil custody Capt. Hains' name will still be retained on the army list, but in all probability designated officially as "held in civil custody." If fortunate enough to secure his release on ball he would go back to duty. He could, of course, be brought before a military court in connection with the case, even pending civil trial, if released on bail, but this would probably not be done, as the military authorities would not care to prejudice his caae before the civil courts.

WINTHROP, Mass., August 17.?Mrs. Claudia IAbbey Hains, who has .been at her parents' house, 87 Crest avenue, for nearly three months, disappeared so effectually within a short time after the receipt of the news of the shooting of Annis by her husband that the most determined search Dttiuruuj evening ana uuna&y IU1M 10 yield any- clue to her whereabouts. It has become known that she and. her mother had gone to New York. Her father, Charles H. Libbey, has admitted the fact, and explained it on the ground of the disinclination of his daughter to become the object of a raid of newspaper men all day Sunday.

She intimated that if driven too far she would reveal startling facts about orgies in the United States Army. At her parents' home In Boston Mrs. Hains gave out the following interview In connection with her husband's suit: "There is absolutely no ground for the charges which my husband has brought against me. The real truth of the matter is that he was tired of me. He wants some other wife. My life with him has been one continuous torture. It has been a life of misery for me and for my children. "Etght years ago, while Peter Hains was a lieutenant at Fort Banks, I met him. I was then sixteen years of age. I was attracted by the gold lace and the military surroundings. I was foolish then. I really thought that I was in love with him and I asked my mother's permission to marry him. "My mother refused to allow it and we were going to elope. Then mother consented and we were married here. "I wish to deny the story that the wedding was secret; It was not. All of our intimate friends and relatives were presAit. Doll House Topples Over. "For one year I enjoyed my married life. Then the doll's house toppled over and I found things as they really were. My husband never defended me or my children. It is not so much for myself that I care, it is for the three little children who are growing up. "The man who has been named by my husband in the suit is a New Yorker with a spotless reputation. He is wealthy and one of the foremost insurance men of New York. While my husband was gone?and when my husband was at home, too?the man named in Jhe suit took me out autoing. Every time we were accompanied by officers in the post and their wives. The man was always welcome at our home and he was treated as one of the family. He is a dear friend of my husband's. "On May 29 my husband came to my home at Fortress Monroe in a rage. He ordered me to my room and then accused me of awful thingB. He said that I was faithless. He lied. I am innocent of all the charges. I never did anything wrong. There is not one atom of truth in the story on which my husband bases his suit. '"For years my husband has tried to get rid of me; now I hope that he accomplishes his aim. I have brought a cross suit against him. I want my three little boys. I want to bring them up properly. My husband ordered me out of his house that night. He then summoned his father and the man he named in the suit. He I cursed that man. Saturday night he left and returned Sunday morning. He gave orders to my maid that no one should be permitted to see me. Forced to Sign Document. "On the evening of June 1 his father and brother came with him to my rooms. There I remember I was forced to sign some document. I do not know what it was, and it is all I know. The nex# morning I recovered consciousness and found myself on the floor of my room. I was a nervous wreck. Dr. William Wilson, the surgeon at the fort, was called, and he treated me."

JENKINS HAINS TmyiYETl HIS FRIEND; WAS ACQUITTED I Admiral Evans, Who Saw Shooting: of Ned Hannegan, Was Witness. i i T. Jenkins Hains, or, as he was then known, Thornton J. Hains, was tried at Hampton, Va., in 1801 for the murder of Edward A. Hannegan. The affair was the cause celebre of its time. Gen. Peter^C. Hains was then a colonel of engineers, stationed at Fort Monroe. His oldest son. John, was a lieutenant In the army; Capt. Peter C. 'Hains. jr., was a cadet In the navy. ' and Thornton, or "Tony," Hains was a 1 young civilian just out of college. ' Tony Hains was at that time an unpop- i ular young man. It was said of him that . lighting was his mania, that he talked, thought and read of little else, and that 1 it was his custom to carry a revolver j wherever he went, even to dances and other social gatherings. He was general- 1 ly shunned by young men and women i alike, but he had one stanch friend and ? admirer. Ned Hannegan. Protege of Senator Voorhees. Hannegan was a grandson of Col. , Thomas Nelson and a son of Sellman K. Hannegan of Washington. He was a i favorite and protege of Senator Voor- ' hees of Indiana. Both his family and the \ Hains family were prominent in Wash- ; ington social life. Hains and Hannegan in the summer of 1891 went together on a small yacht from s Baltimore to Fort Monroe, where Col. \ Hains was stationed. They were seven days on the trip, but arrived at Fort J Monroe the best of friends and the day< ; after went out in a government canoe ; borrowed from Col. Hains. A squall came ; up and they were on their way to the government anchorage in plain sight of shore when Hains was seen to reach to j the bottom of the boat, pull a revolver from his coat which was lying there and shoot Hannegan dead. \ The deed was witnessed by several persons, among them Commander (now j Admiral) Robley D. Evans, who was seat- 3 ed on the veranda of his quarters a hun- 3 dred yards away. 3 He was a strong witness against Hains ^ when Hains was tried for the shooting, H and testified as follows: | "It was a dead calm at the time and 3 the sails in the boat hung limp. Young Hannegan was rowing, while Hains sat and steered. While I was watching , them, wondering if they would get in ? ahead of the coming squall, Hains < stooped down, took up a coat from the < bottom of the boat and a moment later < I leaned forward and fired two shots in quick succession at his companion. 4 "Both Hanneean's hands were on the 4 oars pulling when the shots were fired. I 4 and he pulled one or two more strokes * before falling back in the boat. Halns J then sculled the boat toward the Rip , Raps. A few moments later Hannegan , raised himself, caught hold of the gun- ? wale of the boat and screamed. "Help. ? help. This man has shot me?I am killed.' ? He then fell back in the boat and was ? seen no more." * Prominent Lawyers in Case. ? Halns brought the boat ashore about j an hour afterward. Hannegan was lying 4 in the bottom of it dead. Hains tele- ? graphed his father what he had done \ and gave himself up. ? The ablest lawyers of the country were ' called to aid both sides. Commonwealth's ) Attorney I^dgar E. Montague, assisted by < A. A. Lipscomb of Washington and Sena- ? tor Voorhees, prosecuted Hains. The de- ' fense had for its attorneys Judge John < Goode of Norfolk. Joseph Shillington, jr.; < Thomas Tabb and J. W. Wheeler. The ? closest Attention was paid to the trial and ? newspaper extras were issued daily giv- * ing the latest news from the courtroom. < After a long trial Hains was acquitted 4 on a plea of self-defense. ' Immediately following the acquittal a \ number of largely attended indignation , meetings were held and strong disap- , proval of the verdict was heard on all ? sides. Flaring handbills inviting all citi- 4 zens of Elizabeth City and county to at- ? tend the meetings and give their views on * the verdict were scattered by the thou- 4 sands. 4 Dropped From the Navy. ? Capt. Peter C. Hains, who shot William 4t E. Annis Saturday, sat at his brother's * side all through hts trial In his naval j cadet uniform. Meeting Commander 2 Evans In the street after Evans had 4 testified against Thornton, he refused to $ salute him on the ground that his su- = perior officer was not In uniform, and b< was court-martialed for It.
