&*w York, Oct. 30.—At 3:30 this

tally wounded Frederick Mattbies, su

police station last night as a suspicions

ng say he wae loafing around all day,
hiding behind piles of brick. In the
aitoruoou he came out and said
the police . and Superintendent
Mattbies were trying to murder him
for stealing $000. Soon after be Btepped
i toilattliieti and deliberately fired two
| shots into hie etomaeh. An infuriated
. •molt quickly eathored, and ten police
men lind !■. difficult task to get the itnr
derer out. The WGrkinginen in the
build.ng and other members of the mob
wanted to ly/ch him. Bradley held
them at bay behind a pile of
cornice Material, revolver in hand. The
police tired a number of ehots and
i ordered him to come out. Bradley
finally came out on a run, and when
a policeman seized him, fought like a
wildcat. It required a severe clubbing
to subdue him, and when the policeman
! finally got him out, he wbb a sorry
looking eight. He wae taken to the ata
i tion and the crowd dispersed.
Kdwlu Mould's first Startling Experi
ence With n Crsnk.
New Yokk, Oct. 30. —Edwin Gould,
second son of tbe late Joy Gould and
\ co-heir of tbe lattsr'l millions, had his
'first startling experience with a crank
this afternoon. At 2 o'clock, ac Gould
was sitting in his private office, a shab
bily dressed mun entered, walked up to
' his desk and said :
"'■iive u.e -5000 and give it to me
j rjT-r.i,-, vi fcii ti a ttp uit ii'/tt iirargar."
Gould asked him to sit down until he
| got the money from the safe. The
I crank sat down, and Gonld stepped to a
i e'de door and summoned Detective
I Clark, who quickly took the young man
ito police headquarters. Gouldhadbeen
: prepared for hia visitor, who had called
i at noon today, and being told by a clerk
: that Ciouhi was out, said he would re
j turn by 2 o'clock, when he wanted a tip
lou the market or $5000. At police head
quarters tbe crank eaid his name was
Mongolia Andmwß. nnd f lint, hn wan 34
years old. His object in going to Gonld
waa to get back $5000 which he lost in
Hoaedale, Kan., while working on a rail
road in the Gould eyatem. The police
think he is iuaane. In a note book in
hia pocket was a list of the wealthy men
of New York city, with figures beside
the name of each one, indicating what
Andrews thought they were worth.
Kansas City, Oct. 30 —Mongolia An

They Might Have Found Lodgment ln
the Hrart of tb» President.
Washington, Oct. 30.—Prendergast's
bullets, wtiicb took the life of Mayor
Carter Harrieon, might have found
lodgment in the heart of a United States
senator, or even the president of the
United States. For fully two weeks be
fore the murder of Chicago's mayor, tbe
assaeßin had been directing messages
. through the mails to at least ore United
States Beuator, which indicated that his
mind was intensely wrought np against
President Cleveland. Ihe burden of all
those communications was the eilver
question. Senator Dubois of Idaho aud
otherß were recipients oi the commuiii
tions, which have been received almost
daily since October 9th. 4
Writing on tbe 21st met. he said:
''Repeal ia effectually beaten unless the
cloture is resorted to to stifle the voice
of the people: and if thia dishonorable,
unconstitutional, unusual course is re
sorted to, tbe peace of tbe nation ia
neked, and no senator who votes ior tbe
cloture can justify his course from a
patriotic standpoint. I repeat that re
peal ia defeated unless tbe cloture ia re
sorted to."
On the 24th he wrote: "I notice a
waverintf 111 the ranks of the eilver ene
mies. Your aide iB now the strongest.
If you are determined, firm and patient
you can win. The best thing to do is to
light it out. Look out for artifices on
tbe part of your opponents. Remember
that the strongest and most intelligent
leadership ia on tht part of the silverite
side and Orover Cleveland is impotent.
Tiie cry for repei.l is simply a whim of
his. Is the United States Benate going
to yield to an irresponsible president's
On the 2Ctb he wrote: "Hold the
fort. The president i*aa about to give
up the light, when ceitain persons like
John Sherman and Banker Benedict ot
.New York ro-animated him. If yon
hold out, you ate sure to win. They
dare not attempt the cloture. Hill 01
New York has no influence in the sen
ate, owing to his unsavory record in New
York. The president haa become tired
and will give np in despair if yon delay
the vote as long as possible, by every
means at your command."
He adds a postscript to this note, in
which he Bays : "I have done and shall
continue to do my duty."
The eilver senators paid no attention
to these screeds for tbe reason tbat since
the silver fight began they have been
receiving many oi a similar nature from
all parts of the country aDd from people
apparently excited on both Hides of the
question. These have included en
couraging letfera aa well as pome telling
them that if they did not coaee their
opposition to the repeal bill they would
be shot down like dosjp.

rgof Company 1, fifteenth
infantry, stationed here, was shot and
killed tbiß alterr-on by Lieutenant
Maney, quartermaster ol tiie same regi
ment. Tbe tragedy occurred ne.ir the
cavalry BtaWes, and was witnessed
by a number of cuvalrymen, but
only one man, , Sargeant Cope
land, heard the conversation that
preceded it, and he haa been ordered to
keep absolute silence until official in- j
veetigation. There was a hot dispute |
which ended by the lieutenant drawing
a heavy Colt's revolver and shooting
the captain in the groin. The wonuded
man was taken to the hospital where he
died an hour afterwards. Lieutenant
Maney gave himself up and was placed
under arrest. The officer of the day
Corniah. held an examination at once,
the result ot wijich is not yet made
Col. R. E. Crofton, commandant of
the poßt, Bays: "I believe the shooting
wae done in eetf-deienee, us LieutenHnt
Maney is not a man to reeort to art or
of that kind without sufficient grounds."
Captain Hedberg was 55 years old and
a native of Sweden. He served as a re
cruiting officor duriig the war. Lieu
tenant Maney ie 36 ytars old. He grad
uated at West Point.
A story current at the post is tbat
Captain Hedburg tbretteiiod come time
ago to kill Lieutenant Maney. It is
rumored that the captain came home
unexpectedly, recently, and discovered
the lieutenant in a ve'y compromising
position. Captain Hediurg ia alleged to
have told brother officeis that be would
kill Lieutenant Maney cm sight, that be
had ruined his home.
At the examination Lisutenant Maney
said: "The shooting was the result of
trouble I had with Captain Hedburg a
mouth ago over the ku'<oniining of bis
basement, when he threatened to shoot
me. I expected Captain IL-dburg to
eboot me if I did not get him first, and
consequently in eell-deleOße 1 bad to
protect myself."
Captain Hedburg was trwd hy a gen

The court found him guilty and sen
tenced him to be dismissed from the
service, refund the money, and be con
tiued one year in the penitentiary. The
sentence was remitted by the president.

Official Life of the World's
Fair Ended.
It Did Not Go Out in a Blaze of
No Brilliant Ceremonies Marked the
Closing Fetftg Cancelled on Account of
Mayor Harrison's Tntpio Death,
memorial Exercises Held ln
the White Olty.
By the Assoclnied Press,
Chicago, Oct. 30.—The official life of
the world's lair haa ended. This evening
waa to have been one of dazzling bril
liancy, but tiie awful, untimely death
of Mayor Harrilbn changed all tbat.
Appropriate uction waa taken at a me
morial meeting in festival hail, as de
ed ibed below, in memory of Chicago's
beloved chief magistrate, and all the
ceremonie?, except those mentioned,
were abandoned.
The last day of the world's fair
opened with beautiful weather, but a pall
hung over the great exposition, nnd its
myriad flags floated at lialf-stnfT, inatead
of tbe scene of dazzling splendor that
wbb to have crowned a i,iy of brilliancy
in speech and song. Unly the necessary
liehtß were burned tonight, and the
White city waa shrouded in darkness at
an earlier hour than since it? opening.
So with the tragic death of Mayor Har
rison, the life and gaiety of the exposi
tion went out forever. Instead of the
festival of oratory and music, which was
to have filled in the afternoon, memo
ria! services were held in festival hall at
which tributes were paid to the memory
of Chicago's most characteristic citizen
by world's fair offiejials, national and
local, and by representatives of the as
sembled nations.
The great audience, some of whom
had come from far distant Btates in or
der to assist at the rejoicings over the
successful ending of the great exhibi
tion, lilling every eeat and cccupying
e*very fnot of standing room, waß
hußhed. President Palmer of the na
tional commission presided.
Rev. Dr. Harrowß delivered a prayer
and read an addreas prepared by Presi
dent Higinbothom, of the local direc-
I tory, previous to the mayor's taking ell.
This was thought best, becauee it was
'so consonant wit>b the spirit of the
I Alter .Mr. HiginbothaiuV speech, ap
propriate resolutions concerning the
taking off of Mayor Harrison, and pay
ing to his memory a tribute of respect
and admiration, were adopted. En
grossed conies will be sent to tbe family
of Mr. Harrison.
Then President Thomas W. Palmer of
the national coinmieeion announced that
in view of the Bad circumstancea which
brought the assemblage together tbe
closing of tbe fair would be marked only
by a ealute of cannon and the hauling
down of the flaga. When that took
place he declared, in obedience to tbe
act of congress, the exposition would be
officia'ly closed.
The total paid attendance at the fair
from the opening of the fair to the close
nas been 21,458,5)10. The total free ad
missions, which include employee of all
kkidt, exhibitors, conceasiouaireei, etc.,
has been 5.5)53,818.
Today's admissions were 242,575, of
wtiicb 208,173 were paid.

South Sra Inland,
San Fbancisco, Oct. 30.—The schooner
1 Viking arrived tonight with ihe two sail- j
ors who were marooned on Clipper- 1
j ton island lust May. Clipperton
| island is a tiny speck in the |
i South Pacific, and is covered
' with a guana deposit. A company wbb
organized to work the deposit, and the j
I schooner Compeer left for the island
j with a force of men. The schooner wae
forced to return to San Fran
! Cisco for supplies and machinery,
I but in order to hold the island,
1 left two sailors there with provie
! ions for three mouths. The island j
;is a desolate spot, and the Bailors had
i misgivings that the schooner would not
| be back in three months, co one of tbem
! sent a letter to a friend in this city when
i the Compeer sailed, telling of their
fears of being deserted. The
friend was asked to wait three
months, and then if no vessel
waa sent to take them off, he wae to
make ttie letter public. Three months
passed and ns the guano company made
;no move to rescue tbe men, the letter
wbb published in tbe newspapers,
i Finally, last August the schoon
er Viking was cent after the de
serted sailors. It was known here that
the men's provisions would be exhausted
' before the Viking could reach them,
and there wbb much speculation as to
j their fale. The Viking found the men,
Jensen and Hall, in good condition and
brought them back to San Francisco.
They had eked out their provisions by

'He Says John Ked mood's Policy Is
Sheer Insanity and Promises to
Wreck the Hume Itule
I -v,
i Oopyilg-ht, 1803, by the AatOvlatei) Pia«F.
London, Oct. 30.— T. P. O'Connor,
J president \if the Irish National league
jin Great R'itain, was aaked by tbe
' Associated Press to give hia views on the
! Irißh situation in general nnd particu-
I larly on the attitude of John
Redmond and other extreme Par
nellites. O'Connor made a lengthy
reply, in which he said be
regrets Redmond's recent speeches, and
for reasonß not dictated by any hostility
Ito any section following him. The at
i tempt of the Parnellites to retain for
I tho Iriih fall strength in the im
j periai parliament after home rule,
was near landing tho party in
disaster. Aa it is. the retention of even
80 members forms, one of the most
effective weapons against home rule in
| the next campaign. O'Connor regards
I the urging of the demand for amnesty
I for political prisoners, not only perilous
for the cause of homo rule, but even
I more destructive to what little chance
': the unfortunate men have of ever
! getting released. The adoption of
tbe Parnellites policy would soread
I the impression tbat home rule involves
• sympathy with dynamite methods.
! This, of course, would mean defeat. Tbe
I fundamental point about home rule is
! tbat every practical Irish politician
must consider methods and measures
with which to get a British
majority of votes for tbe Liberals
at the next election. Looked at from
, this view the Redmond policy is insanity.
Every vote given for the Liberal party
I will lis for borne rule, and every vote
| taken from the Liberals will be taken
from home rule. Redmond asks the
I Liberal government to do everything
j the Liberals and Tories alike helieve
I would lead to ite defeat. He
aake that the Irish question be dealt
with. In other words he asks the Lib
eral ministry to go to tbe country with
i out those Britiah measures which form
their one chance of gaining a majority.
I O'Connor thinks Redmond's policy is
leading to the destruction of the home
i rule ciuse in our geueration.

Wasuington, Oct. 30.—At 7:28 to
. night, by a vote of 43 to 32, the senate,
after one of the most remarkable parlia
mentary battles of the generation,
passed the bill unconditionally repeal
ing the purchase clause of the Sherman
silver law. The end wae reached at the
entl of a continuous session of fourteen
days, after sixty-one iSuye of debate,
during which five volumes of the Con
gressional Record were filled with
speeches amounting in the aggregate to
about 20,000,000 words.
This haa been a field day in the
senate. No more interest haa been
manifested at any stage of the long
struggle than waa shown today, when
the question at issue was practically de
cided and the victors were simply
awaiting the final vote to register their
triumph. Before 11 o'clock the galleries
were black with people, and a number
of foreign repreaentativea looked down
from the diplomatic gallery. The scene
on the floor waß impressive. Nearly
every seat waß occupied, while h. hun
dred representatives from the lower
house were ranged against the wall.
The impressive stillnese was broken
only by the rise and fall of the voices of
the speakers as they delivered the final
notes of triumph or warning. The
senate and gaileriea seemed awe stricken.
F.veryone seemed to feel deeply that the
result of thiß great parliamentary
struggle waa fraught with momsntovts
niipo'lance to the county and that the
policy about to be inaugurated was for
weal or woe to (17,000,000 people.
Voorhees announced Saturday that
Ihe would call for the final vote on the
I repeal bill at 2 p.m. today, but aa it waa
I known the bill waa still open to amend-
I ment this morning, there wae ranch
speculation as to what propositions
might be launched at the last moment
by tbe eilver men, who had nothing to
lose and everything to gain by a sudden
onslaught on the repoal forces, The
opening indications were not promising
for a vote aa early as Voorhees antici
pated. Several western senators had
expressed a deeire to speak, and as tbe
time to be consumed by each waa rather
indefinite, the final vote seemed more
iikely to be delayed till 4or 5 o'clock
this afternoon. There waa a manifest
determination on tho part, of the repeal
' men to force a vote ns soon ac possible,
