EXCLUSIVE BOSTON SHOCKED.
Musician and Other Parties to the
Escapade Well Known in the
Inner Social Circles on
Beacon llill.
KEPUBUC SPECHU
Boston, May 30 Seldom has Boston ao
cietv had such a shock os that experienced
to-day over a. shooting affray in the house
of Doctor Sumner Paine on Beacon Hill last
evening, when the Doctor, who la the
champion amateur revolver shot of the
woria, discovered Mr. Peter F. Damro, a
prominent musician, alone with his wife,
when he unexpectedly returned home.
The Damtn family are almost as well
known In musical circles as the Palnes are
in the Inner circles of Boston society. The
doctor Is a son of General Charles J.
Paine, the veteran vachtsman. who built
the Jubilee, and a cousin of Robert Treat
Paine, the Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor last year. Mrs. Sumner Paine was
Miss Edith Stone, once a Baltimore belle,
and said to be a member of a well known
family In that city.
Exposed by Mnslclam'a Fear.
Had It not been for tho fact that Profes
sor Damm was so thoroughly frightened at
bolr shot at by an expert uiaiksman, jr.d
as. found running at breakneck speed, hat
less and coatlecs through Boston Common,
the affair would rroLabl nevir have be
come public until It reached the divorce
court, where, it is said to-night, the matter
will be carried.
As It Is. the shooting Is but a chapter In
one of the most romantic affairs Boston
has ever had. and it is not the first time
that Doctor Paine has fought for a woman.
Those concerned in last night's shooting
are averse to saving much about It, but at
the police staticn to-dav Doctor Paine Is
said to have stated that, coming home un
expectedly and entering his home bv a rear
door, he heard a. man's voice in his wife's
room. The surprised music teacher ran for
the rear door, without taking hat, coat or
collar.
Doctor Paine sent four bul'ets from a 32
callber revolver in his direction, all of
which Imbedded themselves In the door.
Shot to Frighten Him.
"I simply did It to frighten him." Doctor
Paine explained at the police station. "Aa
I am an expert marksman, I could have
killed If I wanted to"
Damm evidently was aware of this, for,
when a patrolman found him still running
on the Charles street mall, he was a long
distance from the Paine home. It was hH
refusal to give an explanation of his strange
conduct that Induced the officer to take him
to the station as a suspicious character. In
the meantime officers who had heard the
shots on Beacon Hill placed Mr. Paine un
der arrest, and both were compelled to
spend the night under lock and ke.
Mr. Paine was held on a charge of as
sault with a loaded revolver, and Mr.
Damm as a witness. Both were released on
bail.
Came Home Unexpectedly.
Mr. Paine Is First Lieutenant of Battery
A, and last night attended a drill Contrary
to his custom when attending such func
tions, he arrived at his home shortly after
9 o'clock. He Is of a somewhat excitable
nature, and has been noted fur doing things
out of the ordinary. His marriage about
four years ago created considerable of a
sensation, and. It is said, the Paine family
have never become thoroughly reconciled.
Mrs. Paine is a handsome woman of 27
vears, of good ligure and complexion Doc
tor Paine first met her In the Adlrondacks,
where both w ere spending tho summer, and
they became so intimate that It was then
that the family induced the young man to
return to Boston. She followed him hither.
Foosbt a Prise Fight.
Then came "an affair of honor" over MIm
Stone, which furnished an endless amount
of gossip In club circles. This was about
six years ago. Among the girl's admirers
was a young Lieutenant fresh from the
Naval Academy at Annapolis He Is now
at Manila. Both he and Doctor Paine were
members of the Boston Athletic Associa
tion, and it was In the clubhouse that the
men got Into a dispute over Miss Stone.
The affair reached a crisis, seconds were
chosen, and four men left the clubhouse,
crossed the street to the freight vards of
the Boston and Albanv Railroad Company
and In a very small ring had It out with
bare knuckles. The naval officer lost sev
eral teeth and was otherwise badly done up.
Doctor Paine and Miss Stone were mar
ried soon after, and the announcement was
as great a surprise to his family as it was
to society. Mrs. Paine adopted a little girl.
Margaret, now 7 ji-ars old, and It was
through her that the acquaintance with
Mr. Damm began. He was her music
teacher.
Mra. Paine Supported Ilernelf.
Mr. Paine, after being released to-day,
left the city, and no trace of him could be
found. Mrs. Paine has alo sought oblivion.
One of the hitter's friends to-night said
that previous to her marriage -Mrs. Paine
was a typewriter and about nix months
ago she was again obliged to seek employ
ment to support hermit and child.
"Mrs. Paine, through advertising in the
papers," said this friend of the woman,
"has been able to get considerable work,
but she has endeavored to do It quietly, so
that the servants would not know about it.
As I learn the story of last night's affair,
Mr. Damm was taking part rayment for
the violin lessons he gave little 'Margaret
in typewriting, and Mrs. Paine was operat
ing the typewriter and Mr. Damm dictating
part of an opera when Doctor Paina
rushed in upon them. Some of us have
had an Idea for some time that he has
wanted to secure a div orce."
Mr. Damm is I jcars old. and has a wife
and three children.

John McCullagh Accused of Using

ter Gloomy Climax to an
Eventful Wedding.
RnPUBLIf SPECIAL.
New York, May 30 Married onlj three
davs ago, after an elopement, ill at sea
from the moment of departure from Sa
vannah, Ga., until the arrival here of the
Cltv of Augusta this morning, and thtn
having her husband tikcn from her b de
tective, who arrested him on a forgery
charbC, ?Ir John McCullish's honeymoon
has been anything but blissful.
Had it not been for Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Whiteside of Chattanooga, Tcnn., whom she
met on tho steamer and who, In pity for
her sad plight, took her with them to the
Hoffman House and engaged a room Tor
her next to their own. she would have had
to battle with even more dlstresing con
ditions. Without even acquaintances here, and
practically without monej, without experi
ence of life in a great city, the voung bride,
but for Mr. and Mrs. Whiteside, would have
been cast absolutely adrift. ,
Mrs McCullagh is a handorne woman,
alwut 21 jean) old, of pronounced South
ern type and, strong spirit.
Loyal to Hoaliand.
"I will stick to my husband, no matter
whether he is innocent or guiltj," said she
this evening.
For Ave vears McCullagh has been ste
nographer for Itepri"ntatlvo R E Lester
of Georgia, and at the next term of Con
gress he W31S to have becomo Mr. Lerttrs
private secretary. He Is accused of having
forged Mr. Lester's name to several checks.
Bavanns.h police telegraphed the central
office hue to hold McCullagh upon the ar
rival of the steamer, and when she came
in Detectives George Leewon and William
Moody were on her deck before any of tho
passengers hid an opportunity to leave.
They arrested McCullagh. who declared the
complaint a mistake, but went with them
perforce. He first spoke a few words to hla
bride, who went with the Whltesldes to the
Hoffman House.
There was opposition to tho marriage.
Last Saturday a general family council was
held at McCullagh's home. The young wom
an was taken there by her mother, and
was finally persuaded to give way to the
wishes of her elders, provided her fiance
was willing.
"But when I naw him, and he said he
wanted me to marry him right away. I
said: 'If he loves me that hard, I don't
guess we can wait anv longer,'" Mrs Mc
Cullagh said this evening.
I.ove Laughed ut Obstacles.
And so they were married, but under ex
treme difficulties, on Monday morning. The
bride's brother had gained possession of the
marriage license and hidden it. The bride
found where it was and broke the lock
At 2 o'clock they drove In a hack hur
riedly to a church and wero married,
Earlier In the morning of Monday, how
ever. McCullagh had cashed at a Savannan
bank a check for JT77, signed with the name
of Representative Lester's law firm. Other
checks, with similar signatures. It Is al

New York. May 10 At the mot unex

manner tha municipal campaign was opened
to-night and the Police Department ot the
city of New York v. an made the Issue. It
waji ot the banquet tendered to the Na
tional Association of Chief of Police of tho
United States and Canada by the ew York
Police Endowment Association at the Hotel
Savoy.
There were six speakers, for whom had
been arranged ic harmless toasts. But
the guilts of tne evening and the toasts
were all forgotten, while the Brokers In
dulged In IH-concealed abue and Itupt ra
tion. Reform was neered nt. and th police
of tho city were made odious by their apol
ogist?. Tamraanylte Attack Tammany.
The trouble began with Martin W. IJttle
ton. who was the presiding officer of the
evening. Mr. Littleton li Assistant Dis
trict Attorney of Kings County, and It Is
raid that he has been slated for advance
ment by Tammany. Mr. Littleton, after
delivering hlnwlf of a campaign speech,
was taunteo. Into an attafk upon Tam

for precipitating an untlmel) political de

Scn.itor Depcw related a short anecdote
concerning a policeman who went to the as

waymen, and who flrpt took the thugs to
