Chllllcothe, Oct 4. Ten thousand
peopla covered with overcoats and
wraps to-day witnessed Flying Jib go
the fastest mile ever made in harness.
To-day was cold and a stiff wind
was- blowing from the north, making
fast time apparently impossible. Fly
ing Jib, however, was equal to the occa
sion. The great pacer was advertised
ta go against the record of Robert J.,
when in reality he went hitched to a
running mate to beat the record of
Westmont 2:0114 made at this style
of racing in Chicago In 1884.
At 4:30 the gelding was brought on
the traok and was given a warming up
heat by his .owner, Monroe Salisbury,
His driver, Andy McDowell, then took
the lines and before the audience real
lzed what was going on he came up the
little loop and nodded for the word.
Swift as the wind that was blowing
In his face the great horse seemed to
go, pacing without a skip In an easy
manner, while his running mate seemed
to lag behind. The time was caught at
the half mile, which was 69 flat Down
the home stretch the Jib came like a
cyclone. When the wire was reached
the audience yelled itself hoarse.
Starter Hooper then addressed the mul
titude as follows:
"This audience has witnessed some
thing no other audience has ever seen.
Flying Jib has paced a mile in 1:6814,
making the first half In 59 and the last
half in 59 seconds."
At 5 o'clock Directly was brought on
the track to beat his record of 2:07,
but made the mile in 2:0914 only.

Secretary HaYbert fiai Sent Instruction, to
-Admiral Carpenter.
Washington, Oct 4. Secretary Her
bert said to-day, when asked about the
steps he had taken for the safety of
Americans In China, that about two
weeks ago he had sent written instruc
tions to Admiral Carpenter, command-
ing the American foroes In Chinese
waters, suggesting that he place him
self in communication with the com
manders of' the foreign fleets and co
operate with them In arranging for con
certed action in guarding foreign inter
ests intrusted to their care. It was sug
gested that if possible an arrangement
might be reached for a distribution of
ships in such a way that all the treaty
and other ports where foreign Interests
might be endangered should be cared
for by one or more ships from the fleets
with the understanding that they were
to give protection to the citizens of all
nations entering into the agreement.
There are now but five of our vessels
on the station, and though this number
will.be lnoreaeed to eight by December
1 there are at least fifteen ports where
the lives of American citizens may be
endangered. If Admiral Carpenter can
secure the co-operation of the British
admiral, the British and American
ships could be distributed in such a
manner as to protect both British 'and
American subjects.
Bold Work of Burglars.
Springfield, Oct 4. Burglars entered
the house of Mrs. W.W. Stewart of
Maple Btreet this evening, -between 6
and 7 o'clock, and stole several thou
sand dollars worth of diamonds and
Jewelry. Mrs. Stewart was sitting in
the drawing room reading and heard
someone in her bedroom and called to
her servant whom she supposed was
making the noise. No one answered,
and about 10 o'clock she went to her
room and found her Jewelry boxes
empty,. There are no clues.
Falling Off In the Democratic Tote In Gear,
gia's Election. -
Atlanta, Ga., Oct 4. Returns from all
the accessible counties Indicates that
Atkinson's majority for governor may
range from 30,000 to 30,000, and that
the state, ticket will probably receive
about 10,000 more.
Probably forty populist members of
the legislature have been elected. The
democratic majority last year was 65,
000. The greatest falling off In the vote
occurred in the Fourth district where
Atkinson resides, and which is repre
sented In congress by C. L. Moses. The
Seventh, Ninth and Tenth districts
all show big deficits.
Speaker Crisp's district also shows
something of a slump, as do the Fifth
and Sixth. From the returns Lesters
and Russellfl,, the- democratic majori
ties are fully sustained.
Most of the districts represented by
free silver democrats have furnished
the populist gains, '
' All senatorial calculations have been '
upset by the Increased representation
of the" populists . in the legislature. -'
Turner's chances are considered much
Improved, as the section of the state
which is solid for him will send solid
delegations to the legislature. . '
Damaging Testimony ll i a Be ore tha
Leaow Cimul'i
New Tork, Oct. 4. Th" xow com
mittee was called to orde it 11 o'clock
this morning. Lawyer 1" m of Pork
burst's tocUdy offered In evidence the
records of two policemen who went
found guilty of the same offense by the
police board, one of whom was din
missed from the force and the other
fined three days' pay,
Mr i. Sarah Brown, oolored, testified
that she bad brought suit agulnst a
lawyer named Isaao Cohen for 46,500.
She said that Officer Callahan and O ni
cer Savage called on her and asked hor
to discontinue the suit against Cohen.
While talking with Callahan, Suvago
went Into the other room mid attempt
ed to assault her daughter Lizzie. Mrs.
Brown then drove both policemen
from the bouse.
A few days later Mrs. Brown was ar
rested by Callahan on the charge of
keeping a disorderly house.- While In
the Tombs jail Callahan told her she
could settle with Police Captain Semltt
berger for $300. She had never seen
Schmlttberger and did not know him.
Lizzie Brown, daughter of the wit
ness, corroborated her mother's story as
regards Callahan and Savage.
Edward Rubes, formerly of Lyric
hall, testified that he had to pay an ex
cise Inspector $300 to get a license. He
applied for a license and it wits refused
by (he excise board. He was advised to
buy up an old license for $300, which he
did, and then he had to pay 200 more
after getting the old license. Mr. Ruben
had paid WardmanBrett $10 for keeping
open after closing time. He also said
he had sent $40 to Captain Reilly as a
Christmas present. Witness denied that
he sent money in a box of cigars to Cap
tain Williams. He admitted sending a
box of cigars to Captain Williams as a
Christmas present.
Susannah Martin took the stand. Mr.
Goff said he had been informed that
as late as this morning witness was of
fered transportation to Europe. She
said she kept a cigar store on Allen
street when Captain Allaire was in the
Eleventh precinct and Frank Wilson
was wardman. Wilson was rich, she
said, had resigned and was now in
Pennsylvania. She gave Wilson money,
she said, and she cried as she told it.
She kept a disorderly house in the pre
cinct twelve years in one place and
Wilson always protected her. She used
to give him $25 or $50 every month and
gave him $100 at Christmas.
Wilson wanted a diamond ring for
Ills wife and daughter and she gave
him them. She also bought silks for
dresses for his wife.
She bought silverware for his fam
ily, water pitcher, goblets and so on,
paid $1,000 for . the furniture for his
house. She was in his house very of
ten. His wife picked out a carpet and
the witness paid $300 for it.
"Did his wife know what kind of a
house you kept?" asked Senator Brad
ley, bluntly.
"She did," was the answer.
Witness stated that when Captain Mc
Laughlin took command of the pre
cinct she had to pay Burns, Captain
McLaughlin a wardman, $300 and $50
every month. Burns sent a man to
her with a diamond stud. Burns or
dered her to buy the stud for him. She
did so, and paid $165 for it. She pawn
ed everything she had to buy the stud.
Every house In the precinct paid, money
to the Gerry men, Mrs. Martin said.
Other persons told Captain Cross of
it. Mrs. Martin heard Captain Cross
did nothing about it because he wanted
to keep Becker, one of the Gerry men,
out cf trouble.
Mr. Goff came down to the time
when Captain Cross' man, with Agents
Finn and Becker, then of the Gerry
society, raided the house. ,
The trouble, witness said, had been
made for her by a woman named
Schultz, who kept a house next door
and who had given Becker $500 not to
be bothered. She told Becker that
Mrs. Martin had girls in the store and
that he might make $500 out of her.
"This morning," said the woman,
while I was in a Grand street cara man
named Dowllng said: 'You go right up
to See Inspector McLaughlin at police
headquarters and he will buy you off.
Do not go before the Lexow committee.'
I refused his advice."
"How much have you paid to the po
lice in all?" "From $8,000 to $10,000."
"And you are now destitute?" The
woman sobbed, "I havent a cent left."
James W. Ledwlth, warden of Jeffer
son Market prison, was called. Mr.
Goff hauled him over the coals for vis
iting David Fender on BlackweU's Isl
and. Fender was mentioned by green
goods witness Applegate, and it appears
the warden, who is a friend of Sergeant
Detective Hanley, interested himself in
his friend's behalf and tried to get some
sort of a statement from Fender which
would help Hanley. Mr. Goff took the
warden to task also for improper prac
tices in the prison. He charged that
certain lawyers were favored and that
the "growler" was rushed at night
An adjournment was then taken until
next Tuesday.

Was in Lot. With Hl Landlady The
Wonnd a Dangerous One llultet Dai
Not Tet Been Extracted- 1'arker Has
Been Drinking- Heavily n.nce Sunday.
Milton Purker, a colored barber, thtr-ty-flve
years old. Is at the hospital suf
fering from a dangerous wound In
flicted by himself with a five-chamber
32-callbre American bulldog revolver.
At the hospital last night It was stated
the wound, while dangerous, was not
necersarlly fatal and that unless blood
poisoning set in, Parker had a slight
chance of recovery.
The rash act was committed about 2
o'clock, but his situation was not dis
covered until early last evening. While
Officer Dargen was patrolling his beat
about 8:30 o'clock, a colored man, who
gave his name as Osborn, approached
him and told him that a man had shot
himself in his room In the lodging
house kept by Mrs. Rose E. Morris at
the corner of Wooster street and Prlndle
Alley. The officer hastened to the scene
and found Parker covered with blood
lying on a bed groaning. At the foot
of the bed was the weapon with which
the act had been committed. About
three inches above the navel was an
ugly wound, from which the blood was
flowing, while the bed clothing was sat
urated with blood.
When asked what caused him to at
tempt to take his own life, Parker re
plied that It was on account of a
woman, and when pressed still farther
said: "I was engaged to my landlady,
Mrs. Morris, and well that's all I have
to say except to have you notify my
friend Newton of 71 Eaton street."
Mrs. Morris, who is a negress, said,
when told what Parker had said:
"Well, all I know about the case is that
one day in a Joking way I told him
that I would marry him when there
were thirty-two days in the month.
Since that time he has repeatedly
asked me to marry him. He has been
drinking heavily since Sunday and I
told him that if he continued to do so
he would have to leave ihe house. I
believe that he shot himself while
more or less under the influence of
As soon as Officer Dargen perceived
the nature of the case, he called In
Patrolmen Powers and Doherty. Police
Surgeon Gaynor was also notified and
ordered Parker's immediate removal to
the hospital. The hospital ambulance
was summoned and the wounded man
taken to that Institution, but up to
midnight the ball had, not been ex
tracted. It Is thought that Parker
did not shoot himself as early as 2
o'clock, as had he done so in all proba
bility he would have bled to death be
fore he was discovered. The revolver
is now In the hands of the police. All
five chambers were loaded at the time
the deed was committed. f
Mrs. Morris says that Parker shot
himself while she was away from home.
During the afternoon she had been
engaged In doing some cleaning at the
First Baptist church and did not re
turn until after 7 o'clock. When she en
tered the house she heard groans eman
ating from Parker's room, but did not
think anything of them until they had
continued for about an hour, when the
groans continuing, she had Patrolman
Dargen notified. Mrs. Morris is a
widow, her husband having' died last
January. As far as could be learned
Parker has no relatives In this city.

Worcester, Oct. 4. Thomas C. Men
denhall, the new president of the Wor

Relics of a Wrecked Vessel.
Nantucket, Mass., Oct. 4. From flot
vam that has been picked up along shore
to-day It would seem that there had
been a wreck on some shoals ocean
ward. Nothing that would show the
vessel's name has yet been seen, but the
size of the timbers being cast ashore
indicates a large vessel.
Terrible Kesnlt of a Case of Didn't Know
it Was Loaded.
Keene, N. H., Oct. 4. A terrible
"dldn't-know-1t-was-loaded" accident
occurred this afternoon, and as a result
the victim will lose both eyes possibly
his life. Arthur Thorning and Frank
Blake, aged eighteen and fifteen re
spectively, had been hunting all day
and on the way home it was suggested
that they have a mock duel.
They paced off thirty or forty yards,
turned and fired, supposing their guns
were empty. Blake's contained a
charge of shot which struck Thorning
in the face, lacerating it terribly. He
was taken to the Elliott hospital Both
families are prostrated by the shock.

Berlin, Oct. 4. The Frankfort Zeltung
says that the Chinese minister in Lon
don has proposed to the British govern
ment that Russia, Great Britain, and
France send troops to the treaty ports
of China in order to protect the inter
ess of foreigners residing there. The
minister Is said to have assured the

Washington, Oct. 4. In Japanese offi
cial circles here the cable reports to
day that China had asked England,
France and Russia to send troops and
vessels to China to protect their re
spective interests, are construed to be
a public confession on China's part of
the panic and demoralization of her
people, and her Inability to afford the
usual protecton to foreigners. Chinese
officials here attach little Importance
to China's alleged request to foreign
powers, as they.say it is a usual step
at a time of great infernal disturb
ance. Neither legation had received
any information from its government
regarding the matter.
The Juicy Oyster. i '
Hartford Times.
A telegram in Wednesday's Times
gave the welcome news that an official
examination of the Connecticut oyster
beds, by the shell-fish coduhlsslon, dis
closes the fact that the yield of oysters
will be greater than ever before. The
seed oysters, suitable for transplanting,
were found to be especially abundant,
the yield of these alone being greater
than it was in 1889, when the harvest
of Connecticut seed oysters was a mil
lion bushels. This abundance of seed
oysters has lowered the market price,
which has' for five years averaged fifty
cents; it is now twenty cents. Licens
es for oyster fishing on the natural beds
this fall and winter have been issued
to the number of 250, or about 100 more
than last year. There seems to be
every prospect of an abundant supply
of oysters, from October to April. This
Is well; for there is no other thing that
can make good the lack of oysters.
The attractions of colder weather In
clude, very decidedly, for most people,
the welcome reappearance of the steam
ing dish of oysters on the family table.
The oyster, in fact, has almost become
the national dish for Americans; they
could hardly get along without their
October is the true time for their re
appearance in the market. Those that
are brought out earlier are apt to lack
some touch of the appetizing and dis
tinctive oyster quality. This bivalve
really needs decidedly cool weather to
deVelop Its distinctive flavor, or qual
ity. The ayster relishes better at
Thanksgiving than at the beginning of
October; but at either time, and all
winter, it is the frequent and almost
indispensable dish on hundreds of thou
sands of breakfast or tea tables.
The capltol Invested In the oyster
business is over $10,000,000 for the Ches
apeake bay and Connecticut shore beds
alone. The Maryland shore of course
exceeds that of Connecticut in the ex
tent of its oyster business; the Chesa
peake bay oyster beds are in fact the
most extensive of any in the world,
and American oysters are the finest of
any. There are none better than those
grown on the beds near the Connecti
cut shore, of Long Island sound. Uni
ted States Fish Commissioner McDon
ald, in his last report (November 29,
1893,) makes the aggregate investment,
including vessels, boats and apparatus,
and the packing houses ashore (chiefly
at Baltimore,) for the Maryland oyster
industry, no less than $7,269,245. The
capital invested in the Connecticut oys
ter business is about $3,500,000, and the
value of our catch and product is about
$1,250,000. Men employed in Connecti
cut fisheries number between 1,100 and
1,200, and there are 600 vessels. Wages
paid out to the men run from $263,000
to $300,000. It Is an important business;
but it is not so great aa the Chesa
peake bay oyster business, which shows
up' 11,632,730 bushels as the harvest of
'92-3. and an aggregate sum of $5,866,000
as the amount received for that harvest.
In the Chesapeake bay fishery there are
33,388 persons employed. Including the
packers and other workers on shore;
and more than 20,000 of these seem to
be employed in catching oysters with
the "tongs," or in dredging the beds.
and in "acraping" and transporting the
catch. ; 1 - -.
Among the fishing Industries of the
United States the oyster fishery ranks
first In importance. v , - .."
At Different Hint'" Trouble Was Only
Averted by the I'ew Cooler riayers At
Ihe Close the folks Protected the t'mplre
From the Molt.
Baltimore, Oct. 4. No more intense
feeling of rivalry ever characterized a
game of baseball In Baltimore than was
dioplnyed In to-day's contest. The
trouble was averted at different stages
cf the game by the fewer cooler players
ami a riot at the close was prevented
only by the large police force which
escorted Umpire Emails off the field.
The incitement was at fever heat from
start to finish. For two or three hours
this afternoon it seemed certain there
would be an exhibition game only, and
that the Temple trophy would be
thrown aside.
It was not until the game was called
that a decision in regard to the cup
was reached. McGraw, of the Orioles,
steadfastly refused to agree to the 65
35 per cent, distribution of the receipts,
contending thnt the teams should play
for even stakes. The other memberH
would not play unless McGraw played.
McGraw was won over at the last min
ute, when It was made clear that the
contests for the cup would be cancelled
unless the wishes of Messrs. Tuttle,
Young and Byrne were respected.
Filled with bitterness, owing to the
controversy over the cup affair, anil
each team accusing the other of trickery
and unsportsmanlike conduct, the
teams took their positions.
Rusie's delivery was a puzzle to the
Oriole batsmen throughout. The New
Yorks fared better, They pushed three
balls Into the crowd beyond the ropes,
and these were good for three bases
each. They all reached home. One other
run was scored. The Orioles did not
make a long hit In the game. The field
ing on both sides was brilliant.
Things looked squally when McGraw
ran Into Ward at second base In the
seventh inning, and again when he ac
cidentally struck Farrell at the home
plate. In the ninth when Emslle de
clared Jennings out at first there was a
terrible row. Brodle, who was on the
coaching line, In his excitement struck
Doyle, and the players all flocked In.
Quiet was restored until the inning
ended. Then the crowd rushed at Ems
lle ahd the police went to his assistance.
He was safely escorted to the club
house amid groans and yells of derision.
The uncertainty surrounding the con
test and the miserable weather held the
attendance to -11,720. The score.- ''

First Merlins; of Ilia oeasnn Held at the
Yiiuiik Men's Institute.
The first meeting of the season nf th.
Social Science club was held at th--rooms
of the Young Men's Institute Innt
evening. Rev. Dr. MoLann presided
The subject for (ilKciiMnion was "CoIIi-k
or Soclnl Settlements." Rev. 1'iof. Ar
thur Fairbanks of the Yale Dlvinlt
school Hiilu of the great difference
which exist In society owing to indus
trial condition between the (op unt'
bottom strata of society. Various at
tempts had b"n made by legislation,
mission cliurehen and injudicious char
itles to remmly these glaring evils. The
plan of soi'ial settlements had originat
ed at Oxford under the teachings of
Ruskln anil Green. Arthur Toynbei
was renlly the Ilvst one to put the Idea
Into practical operation. Rev. S. A. Bur
nett outlined the policy of It In London
and in 1SSG started a settlement In con
nection with St. John's church. He aim
ed to bilnt? music, art, education ami
the gospel to the lower clnHses. It served
as a social center and the workers
sought to do good by co-operation, as
sisting In polities, by university exten
sion, lectures, concerts, and art exhibi
tions, thU9 trying to Instill Into Un
people some Idea of the duties of citi
zens. Along only slightly differing linen
Oxford house nnd Mansfield house In
London have been working. There are
similar houses at Andover nnd Hos
ton, and Hull 4iou.se at Chicago, where
Miss June Adam, a lady of great cul
ture and refinement, carries on the
work. She built It up herself. Personal
friendship Is made the main feature,
and institutlonallsm Is discouraged.
The discussion of the subject was par
ticipated in by several of the gentle
