Her brother would not consent to this, and accompanied them in a cab for a drive. The interview was in progress when Cowles suddenly made a move ment to draw a revolver. Hale in stantly drew his gun and shot him, with the result as above. The doctors tonight think Cowles is I not in danger. Sympathy here is all with Hale and Mrs. Cowles, and it is j believed Cowles intended to kill her. i Hale is in prison. Judge Dugan will j issue a mandamus tomorrow to get the child from the convent, when a guardian j will be appointed. UNLUCKY VOYAGE. Seven Out of a Party of Young Men Boat lng Drowned.

Those in jail are John Hart, John Hughes, John Baker, petty officers on the steamer City of New York, and John Lathin, head barkeeper, and John Murdock, ship store-keeper of the City of Chicago. Those out on hail are Ed ward Baxter, dock clerk, and John Ford, chief cooper, both employed by the In man line at Jersey City. The specific charge against Lathin and Murdock is, that on May 13th last they brought into Jersey City a lot of ready-made clothing on which they evaded the duty. Their arrest would have been made then, but the vessel sailed before the matter could be brought home to the pair. Hart, Hughes and Baker are said to be wealthy Liverpool citizens, who made comfortable fortunes by just such practices as that for which they are now under arrest. "The men who did the smuggling we've got," said Inspector Brittan, today, "but the re ceivers are those we are after and the public will be greatly surprised when they learn who and how many are con cerned in the matter.

THE SENATE TO VOTE_ ON SILVER THIS WEEK." The House Substitute bill Likely to be Passed With a Few Amendments—Ap propriation Bills on Deck. Washington, June 8. —The discussion of the silver question will be resumed in the senate tomorrow, the bill that was passed by the house Saturday being a substitute for the pending measure on the senate calendar. This will facilitate the disposition of matters. It is be lieved a vote on the bill will be reached before the end of the week. It is also believed that the bill as it shall pass the senate, will provide for the purchase of four and one-half million ounces of silver monthly, the certificates issued in pay ment to be legal tender, and redeemable in lawful money. The legislative appropriation bill will be reported early and Senator Allison expects to have it passed before the week ends. There are several appropriation bills on the calendar of the house, and it is the intention to dispose of these with expedition in order to avoid embarrass ment to the public service by delayed appropriations at the beginning of the next fiscal year. The public buildings committee is making strenuous efforts to secure another special order to rescue a batch of bills hung up. The Four Wilsons. There are four Wilsons members of the house, and once in a while the pres ence of so many persons with a common family name occasions slight mistakes in the record of proceedings of the house. An instance of this kind happened yes terday in the vote on the silver bill. Wilson, of Missouri (Democrat) was re corded as voting in favor of the passage of the bill, whereas he voted against its passage; while Wilson, of Washington (Republican) was put down among those opposed to the bill, although he voted in favor of it. The error was caused by the clerk reading the name of Wilson, of Washington, before that of Wilson, of Missouri, thus changing the order of the names on the roll. How They Voted. In the house yesterday, on Bland's motion to recommit the silver bill, the following fifteen Republicans voted with the Democrats: Allen, Michigan ; Anderson, Kansas; Bartine, Nevada; Carter, Montana; Connell, Nebraska ; Dellaven,California; Featherstone, Arkansas; Funston, Kan sas; Hermann, Oregon ; Kelly, Kansas ; Morrow, California; Perkins, Kansas; Townsend, Colorado ; Turner, Kansas ; Vandever, California.

His Victim Badly Cut and May Not Recover. Sawyer Held in $25,000—A Young Negro Accidentally Shoots His Bride of a Month. Associated Press Dispatches. I San Francisco, June 8 . —Late Satur day evening a seriouH cutting affray oc curred outside the boathouse of the San Francisco Yacht Club, as the result of which Prescott Sawyer, son of Judge Lorenzo Sawyer, of the United States circuit court, passed the night in the Sausalito jail. He was charged with feloniously cutting and wounding one Herman Frantz, lately book-keeper of the club, and at one time in the employ of young Sawyer, who was owner of the yacht Linda. So intense was popular feeling immediately after the cutting that Sawyer was removed to jail by Constable Creed, who passed the night with him in strong apprehension of the arrival of a lynching party, From the testimony of impartial wit nesses it appears that an altercation took place between Sawyer and Frantz, con sequent on the former peremptorily or dering Frantz from the club's wharf. It is claimed by the friends of Sawyer that Frantz struck him a heavy blow on the head and that Sawyer, be ing the weaker, drew a pocket knife and cut Frantz in three places. The witnesses are, however, by no means ready to support this theory, and aver | that Sawyer struck the first blow and that' he sustained no injury whatever | in the conflict with Frantz, while Frantz was picked up bleeding and nearly dead. The most serious evidence against Sawyer is the finding on his person of a blood-stained knife with which the cut ting was done; also a pair of brass knuckles and live cartridges intended to fit a 30-calibre pistol. The pistol is miss ing. Constable Creed took his prisoner to San Rafael this morning, where after a brief examination before Judge Mahon, Sawyer was held in $25,000 hail to aw ait the result of Frantz's injuries. The physician attending Frantz said lie would give no decided opinion till to morrow morning, the setting in of ery sipelas being the chief cause of appre hension. The bail bond was given by Judge Lorenzo Sawyer and W. F. Good, a banker of this city. IT WAS LOADED. A Negro Shoots Ills Wife in Struggling for » I'istol. Sacramento, June 8. —Last night a young colored man, named Whittaker, and wife were about to enter a buggy in front of their residence, to go to a moon light picnic in the suburbs. The wife put her hand into her husband's over coat pocket and finding a pistol there took it out. He said he was taking it to a friend, but she replied neither he nor the friend needed it, and started to take it in the house. Whittaker caught her hand, and in trying to take the weapon away, it was discharged. The ball en tered the wife's side, causing her death this morning. The struggle for the pistol was in the spirit of humor, and the accident is deplorable. The parties had been married but one month, and were greatly attached to each other. CHINESE SHADOWED. A Special Agent's Plan to Keep Them Out of the Country. Nog ales, Ariz., June 8. —The Chinese question has been practically solved by Special Agent Irving.

Baccalaureate Sermon by President Pat ton at the 143 d Annual Commence ment of Princeton College. Princeton, N. J., JuneS. —The exer cises of the 143 d annual commencement of Princeton college began this morning with the baccalaureate sermon by Dr. Patton. Speaking of the study of the bible and the methods of its interpreta tion, Dr. Patton said in part: "There are men who stand in our pulpits and preach on the patience of Job and the moral courage of Daniel who find mate rial for sentimental sermons in season, and entertaining sermons on the social follies of the day, and practical sermons on the importance of sleep or need of restraining the imagination, but who are silent respecting the tre mendous fact of sin and the dogmatic significance of the atoning blood. I do not say that such men are handling the Word of God deceitfully, for I am wil ling to have them plead guilty, if they prefer, of literary incapacity and an un scholastic stupidity that prevents them from seeing that the bleeding Christ is the central fact of the Scriptures. Cul tivate discrimination; seize upon mas ter thoughts ; get hold of the big end of all questions; rest your opinions in broad and deep rational foundations; follow the great trend of evidence, and do not halt for minor difficulties and do not let trifles feed doubt. We formu late our faith in creed statements, and, af ter a century or two, find that the church and creed are not in exact accord. There is nothing to wonder at. It is the same old question of the letter and the spirit. The science of ethics is becom ing the science of what is, rather than what ought to be, and if the doctrine of right succeeds at all, it is the determina tion that what is, is right. In the name of reason I protest against this tendency in thought; I refuse to abdicate under the terrorism of popular sentiment. Historic movements, as well as the actions of individuals must be gauged by lixed principles. We cannot eliminate doctrines because we do not like them ; nor can we insert new ones ourselves, because popular clamor calls for them. What is written is written ; but it will be read with different emphasis in different per iods, and will be interpreted in the light of the burning questionsof these periods, and will be brought into relation with science and philosophy. Do not hastily assume that every great movement is an inspired movement. I have no faith in the inspiration of large masses of men." DEAD BODIES. A Plethora of Corpses at Seattle—A Printer Drowned. Seattle, Wash., June 8. —The body of an unknown man was found hanging from a tree at Smith's cave, north of this city, by a small boy this afternoon.

Some Users Say the Home-Made Article Needs a Little Salt. A Philadelphia butcher named Zoll has been testing the freezing qualities of artificial ice. In the course of his ex periments Mr. Zoll found that artificial ice raised the temperature of his re frigerator, and that the ice cakes froze together and were milky. Edson Bros., Philadelphia game dealers, in speaking of the matter, say : "It is possible to produce by artificial ice as low a temperature as four degrees above zero. We have demonstrated and accomplished that in a general business way for over a year. The milky ice does not melt quiet as quickly as clear ice, but all that is necessary to produce as low a temperature as the clear is to have a little more ice surface or to use a little salt. Ice can be made as clear by artifi cial as by natural means. The cause of the inilkiness of the ice complained of by Mr. Zoll is too rapid freezing. By using the proper amount of time the manu factured ice can be made as clear as French-plate glass. "We have used artificial ice for a year, not only for refrigerators, but for drink ing purposes, and there is absolutely no difference between our ice and the finest from the Kennebec. We predict that the ice will be sold soon at wholesale for a little more than half the lowest known price of natural ice." Wanted » Loan. Smith—Say, Brown, got $5 in change?
