George Fraker, of Topeka, Kus., the man w ho was supposed to have been drowned in the Missouri river two years ago, was captured in the woods near Tower, Minn., jesterday. Frakcr's lire was insured for $08,000 and the heirs brought suit in the Kansas courts to recover. The- cute went to the supremo court, and was one of the most famous insurance caEes of the country. The insurance com panies were defeated in the final decisions it being recordedlast month. It was always maintained by the companies that Fraker was alivo but his whereabouts were un known. Ilecontly it lecame known In some way that Fraker w ab near Tower, where he was knoTrn under the alias of Schnell. Attorney Robert T. Herrickin and Deputy Sheriff WilkiiiEou, of Topeka, came hero and organized a party to search for him. Fraker was found in the woods, and his capture waselfected in a strategic manner. He was brought to Duluth to-day and was taken to Topeka at once. Fraker went without a requisition. He has been living near Tower Tor six uiuuths. FELL IN THE RIVER He admitted his identity and faid lie did not leave home on purpose to defraud the companies, but that while he was neartlu Missouri Itiver he fell in He swam across the river und got on land The next day he read in the papers that he was drowned, and thought he would carry out the de ception and have his heirs collect the in surance The case is one of great interest because of a reward or $20,000 offered for his capture Fraker is a phjtieian, and up to the latter nnrl of 1SD3. was nlmician to the St Elmo Hotel, the leading hotel in- Exceisior fepring8, a ramous neaita re sort near Kant as City.

Besides this George Harvey and James Triplett, who swore to having witnessed Fraker's death, were men of bad character. Herrickin obtained a clue in the latter part of 1891, which he has patlcntlv fol lowed ever since, until about a week aga he learned the whereabouts and assumed name of the doctor Tliurdav night hear rived in Tower, together with John Wilkin son, chief of police in Topeka, to assist in taking Fraker back. They learned thatDr Fraker went by thenameof Schnell, and lived with a young man in a wood man's hut, nrty miles irom Tower, on the Itasca county road. A. warrant was secured in Tower, and Sunday morning, accompanied by Deputy Sherirr Archie Phillips, they started in a rough wagon over still rougher roads Tor the place, taking along provisions for five days, giving out that they vcro going to look over some timber Innds. CAUGHT THEIR MAN. About twelve miles from Tower Deputy Phillips saw his companion in a shanty near the wood, and, inquiring where the doctor -was, learned that they had Just moved to this place and that Fraker was out hunting On examining the shanty a trap door was found in the floor, with a consider able excavation underneath, looking rather suspicious The young man was hand curicd and guarded, and Phillips pro ceeded on the road About two miles farther was a man with a gun on his shoulder, who wns Instantly recognized as the supposed dead man, Fraker. Herrlck engaged him in conversation when suddenly Phillips seized his arm and Wilkinsonputon handcuffs. Frakcrthought lie had been arrested for hilling game out of season as Phillips was also game warden. When the warrant was read to him he was thunderstruck but admitted ids identity. He liad been greatly benefited, lie said, by the waters of a spring where he stopped and had about made arrangements to buy the place, intending to make it a water cure rcfort.

The knives were about twenty inches in length, one hud a white handle and the other a black They were quite sharp pointed at the ends, and the blades bore a few black spots. In shape they resembled ordinary carving knives. The saw was or very fine make, and fifteen Inches in length. Tile other case was miiili smaller and contained, according to Mr. Schilling's recollection, eight knives of various sizes and shapes Holmes asked SchlffUug to sharpen all the knives, sayjjjg that he would return for them the next xlJjy With him on this occasion was the boy, Howard Pltczci, nnd a strange man with a beard Holmes did not call the next dav, as he had promised, but returned October 8th and secured tlie instruments On the last visit Howard Pitezel was again with Holmes, but the strange man was not. Holmes seemed to be in a hurry, paid for the work and loft at once. These kni ea were doubtless used to dismember young Peitzel before his body was burled in tlie Irving house.

A FOOLHARDY PERFOBMANCE Walked Along a Narrow Iron Itod Fifteen Feet Above the Planking, When He Suddenly Fell His, Head Struck the Floor, His Skull Wns Fractured, und Ho Died. Matthew McGarvey, a derrick raiser, came to a terible death nbout 0 o'clock last evening on the K street bridge, cross ing Rock Creek'- While walkin iross a girder connect ing the large arches or bows, about fifteen feet avyue the bridge floor, he fell, striking on his head on the hard boards and fracturing his skull. Death ensued in a few minutes. McGarvey, who resided at the home of his brother-in-law, Mr. Stephen Dorsey, at No. 1150 Twenty-third street north west, arose early yesterday morning, Mr. Dorsey says, and started for the Rock Creek Cemetery, where he has been work ing for several months, but returned later, sajiiig work had been stopped for the day. WALKED TO DEATH. That was the last seen of McGarvey until he turned up in Georgetown on Water street, where he is well known. He stopped to converse with several persons and then walked to the bridge crossing at K street. Fiom the earth on either side a large span or arch of Iron rises to a height of about firtcen feet at a point near the center of the bridge. Up on this iron rpar McGarvey marched and reached the summit. Placing one foot on a three-inch girder binding the arches, he walked to the very center of the narrow rod, tight rope fashion, when he was seen to suddenly looFe his balance and fall back ward. His body struck a cross bar below the girder and for a few moments he dangled in mid air, then fell, turning over once, nnd striking the heavy bridge planking directly on his head. Two colored men, one of whom was James Henry, raw the accident from the Georgetown tide and ran on the bridge, where .McGarvey lay in the roadwa , with a gaping wound in the forehead and blood gushing from his mouth, eyes, nose, and ears DIED IN THE WAGON. Sergt McNeilly. of the Third precinct, was foon on the scene and sent for the patrol wagon post haste. The bleeding form was placed in the wagon and a dash made for the Emergency Hospital, but the patrol wagon had gone about four squares when McGnrvey's pulfe stopped and he expired. The wagon was turned back and the body convejed to Wite's under taking establishment in Georgetown. John McGarvey, brother of the deceased, was on the scX'iie of the fatal mishap a few minutes after it had happened, and when his brother died McGarvey took charge of his remains. What prompted McGarvey to walk on the iron beams and girders will never be known unless it was whisky, as several parties say he was partial to his cup ar times. McGarvey was thirty-seven years of age and a resident of Washington. He was unmarried and had a host of friends in the workshop as well as about his home. RATHER RAPID YOUTH. Detective Royd Has a Ca?e of Grand Larceny Auainst Albert Jniiney.

Janncy Is a victim of bad company and strong drink and has not long since been out of reform school. His mother, with whom hohveson C betweenSecondand Third streets northwest, has for several weeks missed at different times parts ot her jewelry and her son Is thought to be responsible for its disappearance.

READY FOR THE' PRIZES District Guardsmen Get in a Day's Practice at Sea Girt. Sonn Hisrh Scores Made by Various Members, of the Different Tenuis. Tin- Contest To-duy. (Special to The Times.) Sea Girt, N. J , Sept 2. The day opened very auspiciously for shooting, clear and, cool, with a light 9 o'clock wmd, which, however, increased very considerably be fore noon, whicS was the caure of shooting at the longer ranges in the afternoon to be much more difricult. The brigade team of the District of Co lumbia started in early for practice work, making a very creditable score The prac tice was the Fame as in the inter-state match, the distances being at the 200 and 500 jards' range The total tcore at the two ranges for the twelve men w as 1 ,025, while lat t year the score or the Dutnct team in the match was 1,030. only five points more than the team made to-day. The contest in this match will come off Wtdneeday, in whicL there will be teams rrom New York. Penn sylvania, New Jersey, the District of Co lumbia, and the Regula; Army. Immediately after the brigade team practice the Engineer Corps, First and Second Regiment teams of the District of Columbia shot at the known distance 200 and 500 yards for the regiment match, which comes off to-morrow. Some very high scores were iv"" Lieut. Hotlely.oftheEugineerCorps, lead ing at the 200-yard range with a score of 45 out of a possible 50, with Private Wells, of the First regiment, a c!oce ?c oud, with a score or -14 at the 500-yard range Private Colladay, or the First regiment, had the highest score, making 47 out or a possible 50, with Private Sneeden and Lieut. Gibson, or the First regiment, and Corp. Carleton, or the En gineer eorps rollowlng closley with scores or 40 each. During the afternoon the following Wa'-hlngtonians.whoarestopplngatAsbury Park, spnet the afternoon on the range inter esting spectators, rooting for the Wash ington riHemen to make top scores Mr. iiuu .ins. a. x. xjiiiit.-, .uj, .ajiLiuerii, .fc i slsterofMrs Birney;Mrs. GMndleB Young, j .Mrs fcneeueu, .Mrs. I'armenter, .xiiss 'en nock, MKs Stewart and Miss Vale. A tempest in a teapot was treated this afternoon, which caused considerable feeling among the District team rifle nine, by Lieut T. 11 King, c.r the Flr-t regiment, entering a protest against the Liigineer corps, and some members ot the Second regiment team using extra guns and ammu nition in the regiment match. Maj. Har ries ery good-naturedly and jutly j-vued an order 1'iat no extra guns or ammuni tion would be allowed, but that the teams Avould all go in the match on equal rooting. This Is a matter that has bee'i brew ing for some time. Iu fact, a number or singular and similar protests were made last year but not heeded. It will lie re membered that all of the engineer corps team in the regiment match are memberr or the brigade t"ara, and four of the Sec ond Regiment team are also members of the brigade team, while none or the First Kegunent team arc members of the brigade team. This unrair advantage has long been commented upon by nfiemvu or the Dis trict, and this year Col. Moore ordered Lieut. King, team captain of the First Regiment, to enter the protest, and if not heeded to withdraw the First Regi ment team from the contest. No one in the world would ever ques tion the honesty of Major Harries, and when the matter was brought to his at tention be quickly rendered his decision as above stated. DEFENDER IS A BEAUTY. Dandy Little Yacht Floated from tho Erie Dry Dock. New York. Sept. 2 With the first of the international races only five dajs off, rapid work is being done on Defender and Valkvrie III to fit them for the contest. The Defender was floated out of the dry dock at Erie Basm at 0 o'clock this morning, and with her polished bronze bottom, newly-painted sides, varnished spars, and sinning deck, she looked every whit a worthy cup defender. Additional braces have made the stepping of her mast secure and a strengthening plate has bcefl added where the goose neck showed weak ness. After leaving the dock the Defender was towed to New Rochelle. and anchored off Mr. Iselln's place. Owing to lack of wind the Valkyrie did not take a spin to-day. She will be floated Friday morning, and both yachts will be officially meas ured by Jonn Hyslop on that day. It is expected that the measurements will make the British boat allow the American two or three minutes, on ac count or the greater sail area Lord Dun raven has put on his craft. ENCOURAGED A MOB.
