Mon fbeal, June B.—A sensational
shooting affair occurred at 4 o'clock tliis
afternoon on St. Catherine street, as the
result of which Eugene Cowles, son of
the late Edmund Cowles, a well-known
editor of Cleveland, Ohio, lies in the
general hospital with a hullet wound in
the neck, which may result in his death.
Cowles and his wife, who is the daughter
of Mr. Hale, a wealthy Cleveland
hanker, have not heen living together
for some time. Cowles has heen in
business in Lockport, N. V., and his
health failing, he recently determined
to go on a trip. He made a
visit to Cleveland to see his
mother and friends, and on leav
ing there last Monday took with him
his 10-year-old daughter, Florence, un
known to her mother. The child's al>
sence was soon discovered, and a search
began. When Mrs. Cowles learned that
her husband had taken the child, she at
once hegan suit for divorce, and an order
was issued hy the court giving her
possession of the child, pending the
hearing of the case.
Cowles had gone to Toronto, and
thither went Mrs. Cowles, accompanied
by her hrother, sister and attorney,
Judge [ngersoll of Cleveland. When
they reached Toronto they found Cowles
had gone to Montreal, taking the child
with him. He bad previously said he
was willing to have an interview with
his wife, hut would talk with no one
else. It is alleged that his object was to
lobtain an additional allowance.
Four months ago, on the death of his
father, he was cut off with an allowance
of $2,500. Previous to this it is asserted
that he had been living at a rapid rate
in company with a woman of question

was arranged. Cowles, in the morning,
took the child to a convent and in

her up without a written order from
him. lie then returned to the hotel,
ready for the interview, which he
wished to be private with his wife.
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.
Seven Out of a Party of Young Men Boat
Boston, June B.—This morning eight
young men started out for a ride in a
sailboat. When about a mile from
Thompson's island, in Dorchester bay,
the boat was struck by a squall aird cap
sized. All but one were swimmers, but
instead of trying to swim ashore they
tried to climb on the boat, which was so
heavily ballasted that their added weight
would force the boat beneath the sur
face, leaving them struggling in the
water. In this manner the strength
of the men was exhausted arrd they
sank one by one until only one was left.
The survivor, Michael Quinlan, had
sunk for the last time, when the boat in
rising, came up and lifting him above
the surface, lie floated in air unconscious
condition for some time, when the boat
was seeir from the shore by the employ
ees of the gas works at (low Pasture
point, who went out and brought him to
shore and resuscitated him.

English Syndicate Rumors Continue to
Chicago, June 8. —English syndicate
rumors in the stockyards district con
tinue to be very numerous. It is now
said that a number of small stockyard

the purchasers of the Stickners tract of

foresee the ultimate removal of the yards

it is predicted that the movement of the

SMUGGLERS IN JAIL.
The New York Gang Being Rapidly
New York, June 8. —Five men are
now in Ludlow-street jail, and two more
men are out on hail, on the charge of
smuggling. 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. Four of the In
man steamers are now in trouble in con
nection with the smuggling. They are
the City of Chester, City of New York,
City of Berlin and City of Chicago.
The Work of Burglars.
Bloominoton, 111., June B.—Burglars
blew open a safe in Brown's bank at
Chatsworth early this morning. An
outbuilding caught lire, and seventeen
buildings, comprising the main block

it has not yet been ascertained whether

THE SENATE TO VOTE_ ON SILVER
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
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
Allen, Michigan ; Anderson, Kansas;
Bartine, Nevada; Carter, Montana;

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
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.
A Special Agent's Plan to Keep Them

Nog ales, Ariz., June 8. —The Chinese

are now 180 coolies between here and
Quay mas, and the daily movements of
each is regularly reported to Agent Ir

eight, now bound for the United States,
is being followed by a son of Marshal
Paul and another deputy marshal. The
system of surveillance now pursued be
low the line, and the recent order rela
tive to Chinese in transit, will soon put
a stop to the whole business.

LETTER AND SPIRIT.
THE BIBLE AND THE METHODS OF
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

London, June B.—The Anchor line
steamer, City of Rome, arrived at
Queenstown this morning. The vessel
bad a narrow escape from destruction at
Fastnet. She made land in a dense fog
at 4 o'clock this morning. She was go

notwithstanding the care exercised, she
struck Fastnet rock, about three miles
seaward, off Crookhaven, bow on. Her
forefoot got on the rock and but for the
prompt reversing of the engines, a great
fatality would have been recorded. The
passengers say the steamer trembled all
over when she struck the rock. For a
time there was great alarm on board,
the density of the fog adding to the om
inous character of the situation. The
passengers were finally quieted by re
peated assurances of the commander and
other officers. The full extent of the
damage cannot be ascertained until the
vessel is docked. Her stem is broken at

ARTIFICIAL ICE TESTED.
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
"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."

A Northern Pacific Express Train Held
Up by Masked Men.
St. Paul, June 8. —The Northern Pa
cific east-bound passenger train which
arrived here tonight was robbed by
masked men near New Salem, North
Dakota, last night. The engineer and
fireman were surprised by two masked
men climbing over the tender and order
ing the train stopped at the point of re
volvers. Express Messenger Angevine
hearing shots fired forward, and suspect
ing something, took $600 in money from
the safe, put out the lights and ran back
two miles to New Salem. The mail car
was first tackled by the robbers. A
number of registered letters were rifled,
and then the robbers turned their atten
tion to the express car. This they found
deserted, much to their chagrin. The
passengers were not touched. One put
his head out of the window during the
delay, but was told to get it back, and
a bullet whizzed past his head as a re
minder that the orders had better be
obeyed. A posse of men, with the
sheriff, left Mandan this morning for the
scene of the robbery. The robbers com
pelled the engineer to break in the door
of the postal car. Only four masked
men were seen at any time. The dis
trict around New Salem is peopled by
quiet, law-abiding settlers. The rob
bers are presumed to be working people
unknown in that part of the country.
