wife's action, together with Madame Hugue, was
artested. Last year Hugue and wife prose­
cuted Morin for defamation of character and
secured a sentence of two years' imprison­
ment. Morin, however, by a system of
dilatory motions, carried' the ca?e from
court |to court. Madame Hugue became
angry, and today, hearing that the assize court
of the Seine would grant another adjournment
of a fortnight, proceeded there and upon the
court rising for luncheon Madame Hugue,
her husband and counsel descending the stair­
case met Morin, when the tragedy ensued. After
Madame Hugue had been arrested, which was
immediately after the assault, she declared to
the commissory. of police she hoped she had
killed the man who, during the past two years,
bad been killing| her by itches by his atro
cious calumnies.
Deputy Hugue has been released. He states
that Morin continues to send insulting letters
and postal cards to Madame Hugne. Mrr.

Monn but for her husband dissuading her there­
from. Morin had declared that Mrs. Hugue,

declaration of innocence. The publio is enthu­

4,412 total nnmber of persons lost,
20 total number of persons succored at stations,
552 total number of days succor afforded,1,319
number of vessels totally lost, 64. Investigations
held after each case of loss of life show that
twenty persons who perisbc^ were severally
beyond human aid and that in no instance can
their loss be attributed to any failure
in duty on the part of the life saving
crews. The number of disasters during the'
year exceed by twenty-three the nnmber of the
year preceding, whi cb was seventy-one more

year. Three hundred and ninety vessels, which
is fifty-three more than in the preceding year
having been worked off when stranded, repaired'
when damaged, piloted out of dangerous places
and similarly assisted by the station crew,
there were besides 245 instances, 115 more than
in the preceding yea?, jfhere vessels running

being probably saved from partial or total
destruction.
