NEW YORK, Oct. 31.—Friends of
District Attorney Whitmans family
learned today that $1,000 has been of
fered to gunmen to kill him.
Gangmen of another great city are
involved in the plan, and four gun
men were to bo sent here to do the
Men close to Whitman were informed
of the plan and say they know the
gang , concerned in it, although Whit
man himself i<? said to have refused to
credit it. In fact, the district attor
ney, who lias received scores of threat
ening letters in the last three months,
made light, of tlie affair.
Charles Becker got a foretaste of the
absolute, unchangeable routine of the
Sing Sing death house. He learned he
is no longer entitled to certain privi
leges because of his former rank, and
as condemned prisoner, no better than
11 others in adjoining cell.". He
learned that his wife could not visit
him every day and that he will not
be allowed more than 30 minutes daily
for exercise.
He must be costumed as every one
else. In the dark gray shoddy of the
ordinary murderer.
Outside of slipping into the death
house routine, perhaps the most sig
nificant thing Becker did was to put In
an application to have the Rev. Father
W. D. Cashin, the Roman Catholic
chaplain of the prison, visit him.
Noon tomorrow will witness the clos
ing of the Hotel Metropole, from which
Herman' Rosenthal stepped to be shot
to death last July. George Considine,
who has been running the house in the
interest of his creditors, says the clos
ing i« directly due to the murder.

PRIXCETOX. X. V., Oct. Sl.—The
Princeton boys have grnvely, but un
officially given their consent to the
marriage of Mrs. Grover Cleveland and
Thomas Preston, but dislike the idea
of losing her as a resident of the col

her husband, but this custom must be
an exception.
They know that Professor Preston
holds the chair of archaeology and the
history of art at Wells college, but
they think that can be fixed easily by
just, giving him a ' professorship at
Princeton at any salary he cares to
