Malt Extract Decision to Be Fought
in the Courts.
The Local tssoclntlon L.lkel to Take
the Matter o tae Illicliest Tribunal.
The Police Justice's Decision
Claimed to lie L'nfalr Gronntla on
Which an Appeal Will Be Made.
City druggists hae determined to fight
the Police Court decision, and to continue
to sell malt extract and like preparations,
notwithstanding the fact that it was held
in the court in the case against the firm
of Mackall Bros, that the extract is a
fermented liquor, and cannot be sold
without a license. The Mackall Bros, ap
pealed from the decision, and their per
sonal bonds were taken. The case is now
before the Court of Appeals, but will
i not be argued for some weeks to come.
Kery druggist in Washington is deeply
interested in the outcome of this case, for
it is held that if they cannot sell malt ex
tracts or like preparations without a liquor
license, or only on a phjsician's certifi
cate. It will result in Injuring many drug
stores.
Thete malt extracts are prescribed by
phjsiclans for debilitated persons. They
are not used as a beverage, nor are they
sold In saloons. President Harper, of the
Druggists' Association, said to a Times
reporter today that It was a little singular
that the malt question should just De taKen
' up at this time. The druggists, he said,
! had been selling malt extracts for years,
I and no one had eer raised the question
that it was against the law. It could not
be sold on a physician's prescription for
i the reason that not more than a halt a
pint of liquor can be sold on a prescrip
tion, and the malt extract bottles hold a
pint.
This whole Question will probablj be
taken to the Supreme Court of the United
States, should the Court of Appeals sus
tain the decision of the Police Court.
SACRIFICES TO OBEAH.
A Chilli Offered to a Ilrnthen God in
Dominica.
NEW YORK, No. 1 Letters recehed
here from Kingston, Jamaica, dated Octo
ber 2i, say that n sensational story of
Obeah in Its most extreme development
comes from Dominica, the British island In
the Leeward group. According to the offi
cial reports of the circuit court of the
Lecnard Islands a man is in custody
charged with having deliberately murdered
a child for the purpose of offering a human
sacrifice to his "Mumbo-Jumbo" In con
nection with a search for alleged hidden
treasure.
In view of the enormity of the offence
and the extreme penalty invoIed, the
Jurors concluded not to agree on any ver
dict, thus causing the trial to be post
poned to a subsequent session. This, how
eier, in no way affects the facts of the
case.
The attorney general said that there was
no doubt that the child bad been made a
Uctlm of a grave and barbarous supersti
tion which exists in these Islands. This,
counsel for the defence freely admitted,
but he argued that the prisoner was not the
person who committed the murder.
One of the leading West Indian news
papsrs. the "Demerara Argosy," referring in
general terms to "those places in which the
Obeah man is a terrible power for evil
owing to the intensity of the ignorance and
superstition of the Inhabitants," says:
"The Jamaica newspapers for some months
past have been ghing through the records
of the law courts very disagreeable glimpses
into the condition of the social life of the
common people. Dut, loathesome though
these reports must be to all who wish the
West Indies well, they are surpassed in
tragic villainy by this Dominica case. When
Consul St. John published his book about
Haiti and exposed the practice of sacrific
ing the goat without the horns (a human
being) at the voodoo worship, great horror
was expressed over the condition of the
French cannibals, but it never occurred to
English readers that a similarly hellish
condition of affairs existed in their own
colonies.
"In Haiti, tie hornless goat was, per
haps still is, used for human food. So lit
tle seems to be Known about the inner rites
of the Obeah religion In some of the Eng
lish West Indian islands that it is impos
sible for anyone to say that cannibalism
of a similar kind Is not to be found among
them. The re elation in the Dominica case,
and the admitted certainty that the child
was sacrificed to Obeah, make it possible
to believe that in points of African
saagery there is to be found in Dominica
a section of the inhabitants fit to take their
stand alongside of the savages in Haiti."

A DOUBLE GOLDEN WEDDING.
Hrooklnllc Hold a Celclirfttlon
A Ith Nome Interesting Features.
NEW YORK, Nov. 1. There was a gold,
en wedding In Brooklyn last night, which
drew together a large company of venera
ble Brooklynltes. The celebrating couples
were Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Benedict Reed
and Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Wildes, life-long
friends, who have for years lived together
in the comfortable residence 170 Remsen
Street.
Mr. Reed vas born In Manhattan, but
from early bojhooJ has lived in Brook
lyn. He was one' of the charter members
of the Manhattan Club Among the many
presents received by the couple last night
wast a costly slumber robe of woven Ro
man silk for Mr. Reed. It was from William
A Butler and Mr. Wheelock, who graduat
ed with him from tho University of New
York, in the class of 1843, stood up with
him when he was married, and who have
since dined with him at least once each
year. Messrs. Butler and Wheelock are soon
to celebrate their golden weddings.
The wine In which the couples were
toasted was brought from France in 1795.
It fell into the hands ot John C. Fremont
in 184C, and a few cobw ebbed bottles found
their way into the cellar of President Stout,
of the Shoe and Leather Bank. He passed
them along to Mr. Wildes, who presided
at the uncorking last night.
Mr. Reed was wedded March 1. 1849, and
Mr. Wildes had then been married two
weeks. Nevertheless, when it came to
Mr. Reed's golden wedding, this two weeks'
lead was canceled and the old friends cele
brated together. Mr. Reed Is a lawyer
and holds a position of trust In the Amerl.
can Surity Company. His wife was Louise
B. Tonnsend, daughter of Palmer Town
send, who nearly a century ago was county
Judge of Lewis county.
Mr. Wildes Is connected with the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company. His wife is
a native of England, .but came to this
country in infancy.
Married Despite Objections.
NORWICH, Conn, Nov. 1. William
Douglass and Cecilia King, both of
Preston, decided on Saturday to go to New
York to become man and wife. The girl's
father sent the police to Intercept them,
of which fact they learned. They changed
their course, and went to Shannock, R. I.,
where they were married on Sunday morn
ing. When a policeman saw them alight
from a train at Norwich on Sunday eve
ning he detained them. After seeing the
marriage certificate he telephoned his
captain, who told him to release the couple,
who are now with the bridegroom's par
ents. '

TJHE BAZAAR A SUCCESS.
Crowds at the St. Patrick's Charcia
Charitr Entertalament.
The charity bazaar under tbe auspices
of the Ladies of Charity ot St. Patrick's
Church, in Carroll Hall, Is proving; a great
success, and a large sum of money for the
poor ot the city will be realized. From
eleven o'clock this morning until two this
afternoon every seat at the dinner tables
was occupied and many were compelled to
wait their turn, while there were crowds
around the booths.
Last night the bazaar was well
attended. The hall with its many
colored decorations and gaily dressed
booths presented an animated ap
pearance. The friendly spirit of competi
tion was everywhere in evidence. The dif
ferent booths arranged along each side of
the bail were besieged with prospective
purchasers oil anxious to get at the many
costly articles displayed- The large por
trait of Rev. Dr. Stafford, mounted in a
heavy gold frame, occupied a central posi
tion in one of the booths, and the handsome
upright piano donated by a well known
firm, was placed In a' prominent position on
the floor. .
The nine booths were tastefully arranged
and the decorations were harmoniously
carried out. No idea of the value of the
donations received by the ladles of charity
can be given, but they amount to thou
sands of dollars. Every firm in the city
appealed to contributed something, and
large sums of money were received from
New York and other cities.
The Dewey "pie" booth, where pie li
not sold, but wblehtakes Its name from
tbe heterogeneous accumulation of articles
it contains, is a gtnbbag on a large scale.
Its popularity has been demonstrated from
the first, and the money received, although
In small sums, does not compare unfavor
ably with the amounts taken in by the
other booths. Every one visiting the ba
zaar has the previiege of voting for the
most popular booth.
A donation of particular Interest is a
first-class passage to Paris and return.
There Ib a great deal of speculation as to
who will be fortunate enough to secure
this trip, and it will not be known until
tho votes are counted at the close ot the
bazaar. Everything Imaginable in the way
of household articles, bric-a-brac, musi
cal instruments, and even a course In lan
guages, has been contributed to make the
affair a success.
The entertainment feature of last even
ing was the tableaux representing charac
ter sketches by Gibson. Those taking part
were Misses Viola Latham. Jeannette
King, Grace Thyson, and Ella Corbett;
Messrs. J. J. ntzpatrick, Charles Mul
herrn, Joseph Cusbman, D. F. O'Brien,
Michael Ryan, and James Hlgglns.
The programme will be changed every
evening. Leader Santelmann, of the
Marine Band, baa signified bis Intention ot
repeating the concert of Monday evening
on Friday night. The Georgetown Glee
Club, under the direction ot Professor
Wells, will give a concert this evening.
The Society ot the Ladies of Charity ot
St. Patrick's Church was organized a num
ber of years ago. As Its name signifies, its
object is to assist all those in need, irre
spective of church or color. Hundreds of
families remember with gratitude the many
acts of charity performed by this organi
zation last winter. The money received
from the bazaar now will be devoted to
carrying on this work. Miss Nellie E.
Fealy, who has the general supervision
of the booths, is greatly pleased with re
sults so far achieved, and expects to re
alize at least (12,000.

An Ioivn Woman's Life 3Ienaced by
an Infernal Machine.
WATERLOO, Ion a, Nov. 1. An Infernal
machine which would hate blown to atoms
the largest business block in the city, was
received Monday by Mrs. J. W. Hoote, in
an express package from Chicago. For some
unknown reason the fuse failed to ignite
when Mrs. Hoote attempted to open the
strange package. Later when the police
took the Implement of death to the river
and exploded it, tbe concussion broke win
dows in houses a block away and was felt
over the entire city.
On Monday Mrs. Hoote received a let
ter from Chicago which she bellees is from
her husband from whom she is separated.
The letter said:
"You will get all your presents to me by
express today. Good-be. Tab."
In the afternoon the United States Ex
press agent delivered a package at her
home. It was a neatly made, highly
polished box fitted with small knobs at the
ends. Mrs. Hooote started to open the box,
but when it was separated only partially
there was an explosion like tbe report of
a pistol and the room was filled with fumes
of powder smoke. The terrified woman at
once Informed the police and they took
possession.
The husband, who Is suspected of using
this means to rid himself of his wife, was
married to her less than a year ago and
deserted her, she claims, a few days later
because she would not deed her property
to him. He was last heard from in Chica
go in April. He wrote then from the Hotel
Morrison, but his address since their is not
known. By his wife's death he would have
inherited her property and $2,000 Insur
ance on her life. The Chicago police have
been notified.
BOYS SPANKED nr COTJKT.
A Recorder's Plan to Slake Them
Mend Their Ways.
JERSEY CITY, N. J., Xov, 1 Recorder
Keegan sat in his court at Kearney, N". J.,
yesterday, much puzzled. Before him
stood five weeping boys, whose ages ranged
from nine years to twelve. They had
been captured by a detective in a freight
car of the Erie Railroad. They were eat
ing apples, and a broken apple barrel told
the tale of their wickedness. The Erie had
been losing much fruit for a long time,
and had made an extra effort to catch the
pilferers. The captives were the sons of
respectable families of tbe town. Their
names were James Allen, John Tollman.
James McBride. James Ford, and Charles
Colcon.
The recorder took counsel with Police
Captain Tolen, who is regarded as a. Solo
mon In Kearney. "Have 'em spanked,"
said the captain, sententlously. Then the
captain recalled the fact that once before
some boys had been spanked for wicked
ness, and had forever mended their ways.
"That Is a bright thought," said the re
corder. "Suppose you send for their
fathers."
The fathers came and agreed that a
spanking was Just the thing. A father
stepped up to a table, and Captain Tolen
handed his belt to him. Twelve 'lard
whacks were laid on the boy. Each boy
yelled, for the punishment hurt. AVhen all
bad been spanked they were allowed to go
In the custody of the fathers.
A Strnnire Hallucination.

"I've killed myself! I've Killed myself!"
she wildly shouted yesterday- afternoon,

Help! I've poisoned myself!" An ambu
lance was called. Dr. Hare found that
Mrs. Shepherd was in perfect physical
health, but he could not disabuse her mind
of tbe Idea that she had committed sui
cide. She Is the wife ot a well-to-do rail
road man. She is being closely watched
lest she become violent and really do her
self bodily harm.

FAITH HEALING BLAMED.
Alarming Spread of Scarlet Fever
and Diphtheria In Chieaeo.
CHICAGO, Nov. 1. One hundred and
fourteen cases of scarlet fever and diph
theria have been reported to the health de
partment in a single day. They arc trac
ed by the authorities to the communication
of contagion among children in the public
schools.
Dr. Herman Spalding, chief inspector of
the health department medical staff, who
has eight men at work disinfecting houses,
said the present force of the health de
partment was unable to cope with the sit
uation. During the past week the cases
reported averaged forty a day, which beats
all records for nine years.
Dr. Spalding ascribes the big Increase
to "faith healing." He declares the be
lievers in this doctrine do their utmost
to conceal the existence of the disease
from the authorities, which is responsible
tor the spread of contagion in the schools.
