Dropped Deail , Yesterday Morn
Ingln ;f ork J Jewelry Store, 1 ,
■ Where He Was Employed.
News was, received : here . yesterday pf
the sudden /death.* ; from ? heart disease^
New York,- of Jl-i:erman ; Oscar iHeinrich.
'Prmerly of i Richmond, - but for ? several
years ay jewelry^ salesirian ; in;New<>York.; ;
frThe; body is; :to.;be : brought; here for

end; have not been ; completed: ; The ; news :
was -broken; "to 'the: relatives -yesterday
evening' in a brief/ telegram ? f rom friends
of ;the t family in ; New; York, land at first
it was) feared that; the ; young ' man had
committed " suicideJ ; These -■: fears were set
at; rest -later by a. telephone- conversa--,
tion. with Dr. Herman Kudelich, an*emi
nerit physician, who was .well "acquainted
witb'Mr/vHeinrichr and: who declared 'the
death due to heart disease, from v.wriichi
dthe ydung.'man has. been suffering /for'
many years". ' ; ; ■' :
: The New York .correspondent- of ; the
Di3patch :? traces a. relation,, between -Mr.
Heinrich's ".untimely death '- and . • the'dis
appointment ; he' is,, alleged; to have felt
over the. failure 'of a' young : . woman, "to
whom he was devotedly attached, to re
turn his love, and in part,': also, to finan
cial; embarrassment.". His relations' here
declare that he , was not engaged to. Co.
married to any girl resident ; in :; this :. city
at any time, - and an attachment for a
Very , prominent girl in New 1 ork is be
lieved .by his. brother-in-law, Mr. Carl
Wippermari. to have been broken off last
summer because Mr. Heinrich was not
in._ apposition to.marry any one of the
prominence ;of the lady ; who : . held his-af
fections. As/to his financial embarrass
ments, ;nothing v is -known here. He ap
pears to, have enjoyed, *to ; a very large de
gree, the -confidence of ; Messrs.v Gattl - and
Sterns, who employed him' for some years
in their store at Thirty-eighth street arid
Ffth avenue/ for last summer he was
placed .in charge . of : the .firm's business
at . Saratoga. ... . „;•.-•>■ ■
. Mr. Heinrich -was. the- son of Mr. Benno
Heinrich' who died in this city rather less
than "eignt years ago. He. learnt the jewf
elry -trade, in his father s store, on Main
street.; Mr. Benno Heinrich came to :■ Vir
ginia forty, years-agol" and his son,'" Hein^
rich, ; was born here thirty-five" years - ago.'
He lived here until he went' to New; York
. was very > popular ; and ■ was always
very cordially entertained when he vis
ited his mother and his relations. He
has not been here'' since. the Christmas holi
idays of 1301, > his . summer va cation being
taken up twith - his; duties in Saratoga.
The shock; of the announcement; of his.
death ->to members of his: family was in-*
tense, ;• because his mother arid sister re
ceivedletters only 'a; day. or so ago, couch
ed in ':•; the most cordial terms, and.writ
ten in a vein'; of light-hearted pleasantry
that carried conviction of his good health
and spirits. His mother. Mrs., Elise Hein
rich, who lives on Mosby street, Church
Hill/ is hearfbroken at the news -of her
son's death. -She is 71 years old, and her
boy. was tlie Idol of her old' age. ' - "*"'."
If her wishes are "carried out the body
will be; brought' home at once, so that she
may "look upon his face again, as a
journey to. New Yorkis out of the ques
tion, as far as she is concerned. Mr. Carl
Wipperman," who is Mrs, Heinrich's son
in-law,;, is . making^ arrangements to this
end. and ; the body is. to -De laid;' in the
family. ;• lot in . Holl jTvood. „ . ■ , . . ; .
: Absolutely , no caus ,can' be fissigneu
by the family for 'the mental-depression
v/hichKhe-New York dispatches declare
that ; Mr. , Heinrich suffered. If lie 7 had
any troubles they are hot known to his
friends here,' and' the ide& : of an affair,
of -'the -heart with a ■ Richmond girl: is
scouted -by -those who were his closest
friends, as it. is believed he had not re
covered " from - : his love affair ':■ with the
New ; York girl. There had been no' for
mal engagement, it ; is asserted, and this
is- probably true/ as "the Germans: look
upon a betrothal as almost as sacred as
the * marriage vow, ;and , engagements : of
this sort are never broken. y

Description of tbe yessel. .;■ -.•'■'•.
The tubular, boat is . described as.ah.
elongated ■ cylinder with ." cone . . shaped
ends inclosing two other concentric cy
linders, an air space ] between . the middle
and outer, cylinders, and a space for car
go between the middle and inside cylin
ders. The longitudinal ' space .: is ' divided
by ; cross ; sections , or 'partitions ; dividing"
the ; boat in, its length every twenty feet/,
causing. a solid bulkhead, creating. a non-;
sinkable .boat, which, if struck in ariy^
compaftmerit will in no way interfere
jvith . i the general running ; of; the boat
or" injure its cargo. The details- of- con
struction :internally are arranged to^ suit:
rhe different classes: of- traffic. For -the
transportation :of oil, proper v generating
valves are connected; with each storage
section preventing combustion or danger
from fire. Stout steel cross beams from;
one cylinder to the other . give the -neces
sary 'strength and rigidity. -.; A flooring
.ilong the lower part : of tne inside, cylin
der, forms .'• the deck, whilst the loading
and".; loading Is. done by centrifugal
'sumps without any extra cost other, than
"' he' vessel's own;power. The total weight
of. the " tubular ship is : only' one ■ third tne!
weight of the present type of. steam
ship .and -has - over 'double the carrying
capacity, and can be built '; for one . quar
.'.er the price of that' of the present type;
- The objection . may; be;faised as to what
will, prevent the 'ship from rolling" and
burning -bottom :up. -To "-.'this Us; answered:
The centre ;6f gravity is always/beneath
Lhe water-line;^ seven tenths of the total
weight j ofj the ; ship : and of . the ;. cargo , are
Mnder/the "floating line. %The '"centre; of
gravity ;is .under .the : supporting^point,
and" there isino reason. why a weight ' of
lO.OO'J : or even of '15,000 tons should : be
raised without any cause.' The : tubular.
:' <hip has then an equilibrium much ; supe- s
dor ' to the One possessed ; by the box ves-'
•el, in .which the centre of gravity is
Above : the floating line.'. -' v
A "second advaiitagfe which the Knapp
vessel - has .is her construction, which 'is
most simple. A huge 'tube ' four or: five
hundred -feet long,- need not ; be built -in
: special shops nor 'by specially skilled
takers.;-/;' ■_ ' . ' ; . : ;/: : :'.- _ . .*.

jAil kinds of characters, from that. of ;a

last night. ' The" young men and the young
women vied with each : other in z - their : va

resembled. that of a comic opera ensemble

person -was attired in ' a costume ' made
of the Stars , and Stripes and imperson-'
ated;that familiar figure known" as "Un

resented to some extent. . ■ . -' ;
. .The rustle of -velvet and silk; among
the "'women; lent an air to the -occasion,
and -their -gaudy attire added lustre to
the' scene. The" tympanum of each car
rang with the sound of the music, and
the; couples danced through the figures'
as gracefully as - a Grecian : water-nymph
glides over its accustomed stream. It
was indeed an occasion that was as thor
oughly^ enjoyable as could have been an
ticipated.: In fact," the occasion was
graced by nearly all of the youth and
beauty of the city society set. ;' '
